IN CITY AND COALFIELD
Dynamite as Baggage
An Italian was arrested yesterday at Graham, charged with shipping a trunk containing dynamite caps as baggage, which is strictly against the interstate commerce laws regulating the handling of explosives. The dynamite caps were discovered when they fell from the trunk in the local baggage room and the Italian who had left the train at Graham was at once sought. There have been but few of these cases recently as a result of a number of prosecutions which were made about a year ago, when the practice was partially broken up.
