The Topeka Daily Capital, Wednesday Mar. 5, 1902
JOHN BRUBAKER CONVICTED
______________
Will Go to Penitentiary for Stealing Hogs.
John Brubaker was found guilt yesterday in the district court of stealing hogs and will soon be sentenced to the penitentiary. Two of his brothers have already been convicted and they too will serve terms in the penitentiary. Ralph Brubaker, a nephew of John and his brothers, admits that he was with the party the night the hogs were taken from the Deitrick pasture and he turned state’s evidence, so that it is likely he will not be prosecuted. It was darkly hinted yesterday that one might now leave his hogs out in an open pasture and they would be perfectly safe if they did not catch the cholera.
