1902 – Shooting Incident

Prosecuting Attorney Funk refused to issue a warrant demanded by Al. Burnham against T.J. McBratney of Yelm, who claims that the latter show at him while passing by his house; at least he heard the report of a gun and a bullet whizzed through his hat, which, taken with the fact that bad blood existed resulting from a previous encounter, Burnham thought warranted the belief that he had been Bratney, it is said, admits that he fired the shot, but that it was aimed at a crow.
