Sheriff Lee Held Up.
A Minot telegram says that Sheriff Lee was held up near Burlington on Tuesday, and the would-be hold-up is now in the county jail, under $500 bonds. The sheriff, with Captain William White, was speeding in an automobile when a man with a gun got in the middle of the road and cried to the sheriff to stop. "Stop that machine or I'll blow your brains out," said the man. Le stopped the machine, turned around and went to Burlington. There he procured a team and a gun and hastened back. The man gave himself up without resistance and explained his actions by stating that he was prejudiced against automobiles. He gave his name as Hamilton.
