pear an counsel tor a defendant who
will be tried for manslsughter al the
approaching term of the court of gen

certainty that Mr. Blease would as

who will be placed on trial at the ap
proaching term of the criminal court
for thc slaying of Charles Robertson,
at Pendleton, several weeks ago.
If this st a lenient tunis out to be
true, this will probablv be Mr.
Bleuses first appearance in court as
a practicing attorney after lils resig

far ag could be learned, there ie no
other term of court on In the State

the r--governor would be likely to
appear as attorney for someone.
The trial of 8. H. Whitlock promises
to be the moBt interesting at the ap

Of spectators. But If ex-Governor
Blease appears here ? as associate

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
MAKES DECISION AFTFR
Came to Anderson Yesterday to
Confer With Committee as to
FOLLOWING a conference yester
day afternoon between Edward H.
Richarde, of Willow City, North Da
kota, who came to Anderson to con
duct his own investigation with a
v'ew of determining the chances for
Buccess of a grain elevator at this
point, and the farmers's and business
mon's grain committee, of the cham
ber of commerce, the committee de
cided that the plans' for the erection
of a grain elevator here would be re
vived and pushed through to, success.
A tentative contract with Mr. Rich
ards to remove to Anderson and take
active charge of 'the grain elevator
wan entered into between the visitor
and the committee. * The plans are to
secure from the secretary of state
Immediately the necessary papers of
incorporation, perfect the elevator
corporation, close a formal contract
with Mr. Richards and raise by a
whirlwind campaign the few thous
and dollars necessary to finance the
He Means Business.
Several days ago the chamber of
commerce received a letter from Mr.
Richards stating that he would be
in Anderson some time this winter
for a conference with business men
and farmers wth reference to a grain
elevator proposition. Yesterday
morntng Mr. Richards called on Sec
retary Porter A. Whaley of the cham
ber of commerce and- make known
his business. Mr. Richards was In
troduced to several prominent busi
ness men of the city and planters of
the county during the day, with whom
he discussed the grain elevator pro
Yesterday afternoon at 3 o'clock
Mr. Richards met with the commit
tee of th chamber of commerce which
baa had the matter of raising funds
for a g/lin elevator In hand and d bl
eu used with them the proposition in a
very full and detailed manner. For
Born? two and a halt hours the mat
ter was discussed. Mr. Richards has
bad considerable experience with
grain elevators in North Dakota and
operates several plants of the kind at
. the present He came to Anderson
prepared to make any kind of a rea
sonable deal looking to the erection of
an elevator here, either by subscrib
ing a portion of the money necessary
to erect lt, subscribing all the money
necessary or taking no stock In the
enterprise but managing lt for those
who did subscribe'the necessary cap
Only Small Pleat
The conference with Mr. Richards
developed the feet that the commit
tee .had had entirely too large an ele
vator under consideration in their
previous plans. . He- stated that a'
much smaller plant, one costing not
more than }5,000, woud answer all
local purposes for some time tb go.
The only obstacle Mr. Richards
saw in the way ot his coming here
was the lack of sufnolent grain In the
country to warrant his .removing here
and putting his money into an eleva
tor. He was assured by the commit
tee that there would be enough grain
produced in 'this county to make the
elevator proposition a safe one.
When all these matters had been
threshed out to the satisfaction of both
members of the committee and Mr.
JRichards, a tentative contract where
by Mr. Richards will be employed tb
take active management of tho grain
elevator was drawn up. The ?com
mittee then screed that papers of in
corporation, would be applied for in
the next few days, the organisation
perfected and the balance ot the' stvck
needed to bu'ld the elevator sold.

of three stores, one of which housed
the United States postof?ce; an emp
ty store room formerly occupied by
the Bank of St Charles wss also de
stroyed by the flames. Efforts made
this afternoon io secure telephone
communication 'with parties lviing in
the town of St. Charles were nef
fectual and it ls thought .'that part
of the telephone system in the town
must have also been put out ot busi

learned from parties living near St.
Charles that the stores of M. H.
Mathis and T. E. Cooper (Mr. Cooper
having two stores) and a vacant
building formerly occupied by the
i bank were a total loss. The mer

books and? valuable papers. The
store ot Mr. Mathis waa partly oc

and. Mr. Cooper -each, carried stocks
of about - $4.000, with partial In
