Regular election of the Colville Volunteer Fire
Department, November 6th, resulted as follows:
W. M. Daniels re-elected chief; assistant chief,
F. A. Clese; captain, Oscar Chamberlain; secre
tary, Henry R. Spedden; treasurer, Earl Town
send; fire police, Earl Townsend, J. S. Wright,
Henry R. Spedden, A. E. Paradis. After the
routine business a Kangaroo count was instituted
for the purpose of trying three members for alleg
ed fulfilment of duty. Chief W. M. Daniels acted
as judge, Henry R. Spedden as clerk and Al Droze
as bailiff. Dick Hurt, Fritz Benson and John
Kimmel were the worthy prisoners, defended by
J. S. Wright and James Petty. F. A. Clese and
Oscar Chamberlain were prosecuting attorneys.
A jury of five was empaneled and gave solemn at
tention to the amazing statements made for and
against the prisoners. The kangaroo statutes of
the territory of Missouri were introduced by Mr.
Wright, and everything bearing directly upon the
case was studiously avoided by witnesses and at
torneys. The jury's verdict was two for convict
ion, two for acquittal, with the request from the
fifth that he be given a year or so to think the mat
ter over before he decided to hang the prisoners.
After the decision the prisoners were unchained
and allowed to participate in the refreshments
which followed. The Colville fire department has
a large, enthusiastic membership and well merits
the esteem in which it is held by the city.
