town of Jones south of Solway
for the past four years, was com

noon by Judge Clark and he was
taken down last night by Sheriff
Brooding over family troubles
caused the weaking of the old
man's mind. He was married in
southern Michigan many years
ago and lived happily up to the
time of the death of his first
wife, and had accumulated quite
a fortune and owned a valuable
farm and orchard. Five children
were born to the couple. Up
on the death of his wife Barnhart
married again but his second
matrimonial venture was- not
blessed with any degree of hap
piness, and at last the woman
sued for divorce and was success
ful in the suit. A division of the
property took place and in the
various proceedn res that follow
ed Barnhart was deprived of all
hjs property and was left on, the
That was four years ago. He
came to Beltrami county and
settled upon a farm near Solway,
where he has lived ever since.
Insanity attacks have been fre
quent and it was found necessary
a short time ago to remove him
to the county hospital for treat
ment. His condition grew stead
ily worse, however, and at last it JMl
was decided by the authorities 1 1K

ALARMS TH E INDEPENDENTS.
Reports of a Telephone Appliance
Chicago, Dec. 14.Alarmed at^ ru
mors that capitalists were seeking
control of every telephone appliance
factory in the United Stales, the mem
bers of the Independent Telephone as
sociation of America will take steps
at the convention which opens Tues
day to defeat it. A week ago,
men said to represent $700,000,-
000 of Eastern capital were in Chi
cago taking options on the telephone
appliances, notably all of -which are
represented in the independent asso
ciation. The result of such a move
ment, it is conceded by the Independ
ent Telephone companies, would shut
off sources for instruments and ap
pliances and in the most emphatic
terms, President Henry A. Bamhart
of Rochester, Ind., told the executive
board of the association that they
must take steps to protect itself.
All independent telephone exchanges
of the country, numbering more than
8,000, will be represented, at the con
vention. Eleven states are represent
ed and this year there will be several
visitors from newly acquired territory
of the independent company. The con
vention will continue through to
