Idaho County Free Press

Friday, June 2, 1892

On Monday and Tuesday an examination was held by Probate Judge Hall to inquire as to the sanity of John Beckroge.  The complaint was made by Phil Cleary at whose place Mr. Beckroge has resided for some years.  For some time past he has acted strangely and although he has never attempted to harm anyone the citizens of John Days were afraid that his insanity might at any time assume a dangerous phase.  On the recommendation of the examining physician S.E. Bibby, he was committed to the asylum at Blackfoot.
