Sal It will be the new Williams and on business principles. It has taken years of wishes on those in favof of it, years of dis couragements, and years of ob stacles, set backs, and losses in the last instance on the part of both. advocates for and against corporation. The town will be incorjx) rated, and one might say is incorporated, as the Board of Supervisors is in session at this writing and undoubtedly will is- iwe the edict before adjourning.

Both gentlemen were fortunate in having cars of goods here and on the way. Salzman im mediately .telegraphed for sever al cars of goods more to be sent A gentleman remarked to the News Editor Thursday, "Will the News suspend publi cation?" When answered most emphatically in the negative, he further remarked, "Well, then, the town will build up again.. I .have never known a case where a town would rebuild after a ij; asterous fire like this if its news papers suspended." More wis dom than flattery in such remarks. The News is not allowed to miss an issue, it has been pre vented only by much labor, ex pense, kindness of Mr. Funston in allowing use of type and presses, and plenty of good hard hustling. Getting copy to print ers thirty-five miles away and getting out a paper, is work and inconvenience, yet the News will feel repaid if the people of Williams appreciate the effort. fx IS IS rx iS iS iS it s A rx iS rx rx S rx rx IS x 3 JOE JOHNSTON S.
