100 years ago, for the fourth week of March 1922, in the pages of the Greeley Tribune-Republican newspaper.

Greeley City Council has passed a resolution that will reduce pay for city employees from $3.50 per day to $3.00 per day. Nothing was said about the effective date, but one board member thought it was immediate.

The third car accident in just two days happened today on 10th Avenue and 11th Street. One driver was a resident of Greeley and another of Loveland, who said he was speeding because he had to catch a train. He agreed to pay all damages. No one was hurt.

Due to the disease crisis, there have been very few staff at the courthouse this week. Many judges and court workers had to go home for a week until they recovered from the flu.

A Greeley jury convicted a man of smuggling and he was sentenced to a $250 fine and four months in jail. Shortly after this trial, another man was arrested for trying to influence the jury. The man was president of the local Elks and arrested Elk members and told them to vote “not guilty”.

Weld County Sheriff Frank Hall complained about a new prohibition bill that would make it legal to brew, possess and sell light wines and beer. He is also thwarted by a pharmacy in Greeley that dispenses prescribed alcoholic beverages.

Meanwhile, in Boulder, the sheriff has received many complaints because he has been so lenient with smugglers. Unlike Greeley and County Weld, very few smugglers in Boulder were caught.

A 16-year-old boy was arrested after trying to break into the Metropolitan State Bank vault at 4am. He was using nitroglycerin to blow up the walls of the vault, but the explosions scared him and he fled. He was arrested later in the morning.
