On This Date in Minnesota History: June 8

June 8, 1911 – John Ula, arrested today by Patrolman Jacob Kentta, was believed to be in a demented condition. This morning he entered the Koponick home on Adams Ave. in Eveleth, seated himself at the dinner table, ate and then proceeded upstairs, locked himself in a room and went to bed. He is a total stranger to the Koponicks and the police were accordingly notified. He was charged with disorderly conduct and was sentenced by Judge McInnis to serve 60 days in the county jail, as he was unable to pay his fine of $20 and costs. He will be taken to Duluth to be examined as to his sanity. Ula is about 26 years old, single, and has been employed in Eveleth as a miner.
