IT WAS NOT OUR JOSEPH PETERS
The court news two weeks ago contained an
item about the dismissal of a case of larceny against Joseph Peters.
No address was given and a few in this section thought that it might
have been Joseph [Patterson] Peters of near Elgin.
This doesn’t happen to be the case as our
Joseph is an honest, law abiding young man who makes his living by
laboring and we are very sorry that the least thought of suspicion
should have been associated with him.
The Joseph Peters in this case was from the
south part of the county from near Oelwein. It would be better if
the address was given in all court matters.
