Fieldkowski, Julius (In Jail after Arrest – 13  Jun 1918)

Julius Fieldkowski was arrested by Sheriff Hewett and brought to Neillsville and is now in jail awaiting a trial on a charge of threatening to do great bodily harm. Fieldkowski owned a farm near Thorp and lost it through foreclosure action. He took the law into his own hands and threatened to kill the person who lived on the farm. It is understood that he drove three tenants off the place in his emulation of John Dietz and the matter was finally brought to the attention of the district attorney and sheriff. Fieldkowski had made threats that if the sheriff came after him he would see to it that some of the sheriff’s assistants at least would meet with injury. By a ruse Sheriff Hewett got Fieldkowski at a time when his rifle had been left behind, with the result that the man was arrested without being able to carry out his threats and is now in jail awaiting trial.
