Ephraim Bonner of Frederick
was arrested for kidnapping Elizabeth Brisle, on complaint of her father. Two years ago Bonner brought a fourteen-year-old girl with his family to Dakota, claiming that he first verbally adopted her, the girl's parents consenting. The father repudiates the alleged adoption, and claims his daughter. The father is from Rockwell, Iowa
, Bonner's former home, and has been at Frederick two weeks searching for his child.
