FIRE IN THE GRAIN STACKS
Sparks From The Threshing Engine Set
Fire To Grain Slacks on Chas. Wilson's
Place Southeast of Burns Last Saturday
And Destroys 2000 Bushels of Grain
While thresliiiiK nt the Chas.
Wilson place just ncross the river
from this city Saturday evening
about four o'clock firo broke out
in the grain stneks, caused from
sparks from the engine that is
used to drive the machine and
was beyond control beforo it was
hardly realized. In all 11 Backs
of oatB nnd bnrlov woro destroy
ed entailing n loss of at leasT2W0
bushels according to Mr. Wilson
and those on the thresher crew
who had made an estimate of the
stacks.
They had been threshing for a
week and expected to finish tho
following day, therefore Mr. Wil
son has a considerable amount of
grain but it is nevertheless quite
a loss but he takes it philosophi
cally and says it might have been
worse. As soon as the lire start
ed they phoned to this city and
soon a large number of volunteers
were at the sccno doing what
they could to save the stacks.
Frst the chemical engine was
taken out but it did not do very
cfFcctivu work out in tho open so
tho water engine was taken out.
This soon put the blaze down but
the fire was not put out as it had
gotten into the stacks deep and
later fanned into a blaze by the
breeze.
The crew had just moved the
machine to a new place at the
stacks for a final stand to finish
and hud threshed out perhaps 40
bushels when the firo was dis
covered. There was considera
ble threshed grain piled by tho
stacks and this was all saved
with the exception of some half
dozen sacks. Tho engineer told
Mr. Wilson he saw the blaze
when it was no larger than u
hat but he did not give any alarm.
Just why any man could be so
stupid as that is beyond believing.
He gaye no excuse for not giving
an alarm. Tiie maenmo was
moved and saved but the grain
is a total loss, there being no in
surance.

tho wound. However it seems
ho is improving quita satisfac
torily and will recover. Tho fol
lowing is from press dispatches
respecting tho affair:
Colonel Theodore Roosevelt
was shot in the nbdominnl region
shortly before 8 o'clock last night
while sitting in his automobile in
front of the Gilpatrick IIoubo in
Milwaukee, about to start to tho
Auditorium to deliver his sched
uled address. According to latest
accounts the bullet is imbedded
in the muscular tissue and the
wound is not serious.
The attempted assassination
and all its accompanying scenes
were dramatic in the extreme
Thd would-be murderer was John
Schrcnk, of Now York City, a
man apparently demented on the
subject of a third term. He was
captured and locked up.
Unconscious of his wound, Col
onel Roosevelt proceeded to the
Auditorium, and when his condi
tion was discovered, in spite of
the protest of his physician, he
made a stirring address on tho.
subject of his nttempted murder.
Weakened from loss of blood and
at tho conclusion of his speech he
was taken to tho Emergency
Hospital, where, after an exam
ination by physicians, the nature
of his wound was ascertained.
It was not considered serious
enough to compell n stay in Mil
waukee, and at 12:50 a. m. he
was taken nboard his special
train on a slow run to Chicago.
"September 15, 1901, 1:30 a. m.
In a dream I saw President Mc
Kinley sit up in a monk's nttire
in whom I recognized Theodore
Roosevelt. The dead president
said, This is my murderer,
avenge my death.'
"September 12, 1912, 1:30 n. m.
While writing a poem, Borne ono
tapped mo on the shoulder and
said: 'Let not a murderer take
tho Presidential chair. Avenge

"I could plainly see Mr. Mc
Kinley's features.

Baker Man Warns State Engineer of The
Coming Trouble When Next Legislature
Will Be Scene of Struggle For Larger
Irrigation Allowances.
Tho first rumblings of what
promises to bo a war-in tho Leg
islature over the all-important
question in arid regions of the
amount of wnter supply, ure
being heard at the state capitol.
Stato Engineer Lewis, has re
ceived word from L. R. Stockman
consulting engineer of Raker,
that a concerted action is being
started in that section to pass a
law or laws at tho next session
of tho Legislature compelling the
stato engineer to grant permits
to greater amounts of stored
water for irrigation purposes.
"Somehow the impression has
ga'incd ground" writca Mr. Stock
man, that a miner's inch of
stored water is not nearly so
beneficial as the same amount of
water by direct How, and also
that when a person or set of per
sons expend their money in
building reservoirs they are en
titled to a larger amount of wa
ter, regardless of tho fact that
they cannot put it to beneficial
use. To this end I have been
told that the candidate to the
Legislature will, if elected, bend
his efforts, and that he will have
the support of local people.
"It is a well known fact that
our water supply is limited, as
compared to the land .available,
and it will be the best policy for
the state to limit the amount of
Btored water to bcnelicial use as
close as the amount by direct ir
rigation, I, for one, am fully

Notice to Voters.
It might be well at this time to
inform tho voting public that my
opponents are telling that I bavc
collected mileage fees in civil
suits and never tunicd them hi,
which any intelligent person
knows I could not do without be
ing caught in the first act. In
fact, if my opponents had suffi
cient knowledge of the law and
duties of tho office to which they
aspiro as they should have to
make good and efficient officers;
should be given to the state offi
cials by direct legislation, so that
there can be no over-appropriations
in the early stages of stored
water in the state."
To this view State Engineer
Lewis has given his approbation
and states that an effort to limit
the powers of state officials re
garding the How of water will
be strongly contested.
"This is a matter of vital in
terest to the entire state," said
the State Engineer today, "We
consider that a cubic foot per
second for 80 acres is ample.
This will deliver three acre-feet
in 120 days, the average length
of the irrigation season. If we
should grant twice that amount
it is readily seen that it would
limit the ultimato area to be de
veloped, which is a question of
vital importance to the 'entire
public,"
