Good morning, Brooklyn.  Today is the 316th day of the year.

ON THIS DAY in 1907, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle published an article titled “Detective Dixon Held in the Col. Dyer Case.”  The article focused on a detective who was arrested at the time.  

“Lawrence T. Dixon, a private detective … was arraigned before Magistrate Moss in the [police] court, Manhattan, this morning on a charge of trying to induce a witness to leave the jurisdiction of the state,” the Eagle reported.
