OVERPOWERED BY EMPLOYEES
Insane Man Gains Access to
Governor Mickey's Office.
Lincoln, Neb.. Dec. 23.— Clayton F. Deeter, an escaped insane inmate of the Grand Island Soldiers' home, armed with a huge paper knife, succeeded in getting into Governor Mickey's private office. Brandishing his weapon he declared that Senator Dietrich, now under indictment for bribery, was innocent and compelled the governor to express the same view.
Governor Mickey was agreeing to everything the insane man declared when capitol employees rushed in and overpowered the man and took him away.
