Dubuque Herald, Jan. 6, 186

The Clayton County Journal on the 2d reports that on Tuesday afternoon of last week a man named James Outan was brought to the county jail in that place on the charge of having stabbed a young man at Elkport by the name of Joe Garber, brother of Hon. John Garber, County Judge elect. In the night the Garnavilloans were alarmed by a cry of fire, it was soon discovered that the Jail was in danger of being reduced to ashes. The prisoner had kindled a fire between the joists of the floor, thinking he could burn a hole through and make his escape. It was noticed, however, in due time, the Jail saved, and the prisoner removed to another cell. The wounded man it is feared will not recover.
