THREW MONEY TO NEWSBOYS. ~ "Exercising My Rights as a Citzen," Said Jeweler, When Arrested.

September 29, 1908

"Exercising My Rights as a Citi-
zen," Said Jeweler, When Arrested.

Because he was throwing pennies and quarters on the street at Twelfth and Walnut streets at 6 o'clock last night for the newsboys to scramble after, A. W. Wyman, a jeweler of Humboldt, Kas., was arrested and locked up at the Walnut street police station. He arrived in the city yesterday morning, intending to go to Independence to visit a friend last night.

"I was merely exercising my right as a citizen in giving away my money on the street," he said. He spent the night in jail.
