Yesterday’s answer:
D   Trying to retrieve a stolen ballot box
From the life of John William Sharp:   At the election at Sandy in August, 1874, when Robert N. Baskin ran against Geo. Q. Cannon for delegate to Congress, the Liberals took the ballot box by force from Judge Harrison; Bro. Sharp, at the risk of his life jumped into the midst of the crowd, secured the box and returned it to the judge. In return Bro. Sharp received a terrible beating from the mob, but nevertheless remained at his post all day.
