The Grand Jury Got Busy With the

April term of the district court
,ope'ed last Monday afternoon, Judge
Searle being unable to reach the vil
lage, in the morning owing to the train
service. As soon as he arrived he took
up^pe business and shortly had things
runiting smoothly..
The |rand jury was organized and
set' to^-work, Andrew J. Barrett, of
being appointed foreman.-
The judge urged the jury to act
protaptiy on all matters coming before
them and to waste no time in fruitless
Then the calendar was called. The
case of the MHle Lacs Lumber com
pany against Charles Keith was con
tinued a'nd a like fate met the case of
IdeIJa M. Cushman against the Chi
cago jTMe and Trust company. Van
Rhee'vs G. A. Eaton and C. A. Jack
was dismissed on motion of the plain
tiff and McQueen vs. Berg was. settled
and.dismissed, as was the case of Head
against Bemis. Auch vs. Jack and
Roberts & Co., was also dismissed, a
motion to .suppress depositions having
beeii granted. J. B. Gilfillah vs. Cook
and^ Trask and Merrick vs. Lochren
were both continued. Weinberg vs.
Steeves and Caley vs. Morford were
dismissed on motions of the plaintiffs.
Roberts. Meeker secured a judgment
against the Minneapolis Fire and Ma
rine Insurance company, although the
company has passed up business and is
novv in the hands of a receiver. Nich
ols-vs. Homme and Lochren vs. Nor
gren were both dismissed.
Carew versus Campbell and Jourdan
was dismissed on motion of the plain
tiff. The case of Kipp against Hanson,
Sargent. Noonan, et al., was tried as to
the defendant Noonan and i judg
ment for said defendant was filed. In
the ease of Kipp* vs. Lars Iverson, C.
^!%ria etal.^a ^^^w^m^^^^.
jud^nentas to Dupries was granted.
Both these cases were tax title cases
arising from the forfeit sale which has
since been knocked out by the supreme
M. C. Sausser brought an action
against Eugene Dunton to recover for
building material, etc., furnished the
defendant and as no defense was offered
a judgment was ordered for.Sausser.
When the case of the State against
William Wamberg was called, the
county attorney announced that Cupid
had come to the aid of the young man
and there was nothing further for the
court to do "in the case. The action
was therefore dismissed.
The grand jury returned indictments
against three men Tuesday afternoon
and the prisoners were immediately
arraigned. They were Harry Ray and
George McGinnis, charged with burg
lary and Uriah L. Greenough, charged
with rape. When the prisoners were
arraigned the judge asked Ray and
McGinnis if they had an attorney and
they assured him that Mr. Cormany
was to look after their interests. Mr.
Cormany vvas present and informed the
coart that he had not been retained
that prisoners had no money but had
prpspects of securing some the latter
part'of the week. The judge asked the
prisoners if they had any -money or
property and both assured. him they
i*ere flat.
I "But you have a watch," said the
judge addressing Ray, who had a ''good
"Yes, worth
i 1 =0=.
$2," answered
I "Well, perhaps that is enough," re
plied the judge. "Attorneys never
charge much."
All three of the prisoners were given
until Wednesday morning to plead to
the indictments.
While in the court room Ray, or
"Handsome Harry" as he is known
among the "perfesh," seemed ill at
ease, but McGinnis showed consider
able knowledge of legal procedure and
was composed during the ordeal.
The case of Stromberg against Kent
was an action to secure possession of
property sold under contract for a
deed. There was something like $200
delinquent according to the terms of
payment and notice of cancellation of
contract had been served. -Kent
claimed that he was willing' to pay up
in full for.the property as soon as the
party of the first part would execute a
warranty deed. There was a lively
passage between the attorneys and the
court finally disposed of the matter by
giving Kent thirty days in which to
deposit the amount with interest, at
the/expiration of which time "if the de
posit was not made the property was
to revert to Stromberg. 1
After the case of Weinberg against
Steeves was dismissed the parties got
together and settled the matter.
Weinberg gives Steeves a quit claim
deed of his interests in the disputed
land on the payment of the sum of $350,
and the attorneys will no longer have
a whack.at the long green of either
party. The case has cost the plain
tiff in the neighborhood of $2,000,
while a peculiar feature of the case is
that owing to testimony which certain
witnesses gave concerning their rights
as tenants during the fist trial Mr.
Steeves quits the case with his title
assured and several spuds in pocket
after paying /the costs and the sum
Just before the court' adjourned for
the day Tuesday afternoon the grand
jury appeared again.and presented an
indictment against Ed Veal, charging
him, with assault in the second degree.
Monday-evening, in company with two
or. three other boys around town, he
took an upcountry resident named
Anderson to a couple of saloons and
"blew him-off" for drinks for the
crowd. Then they visited Douglas'
lunch counter, where Veal ordered
sandwiches for the party and when
they were served informed Douglas
that Anderson would settle for them.
Anderson objected and Veal struck
him, knocking him down. After he
was down it is said that Veal kicked
him. Douglas ran around the counter
to stop the affair and as Anderson was
nearest the^door~started to put him
out first. While he had hold of the
unfortunate fellow Veal rushed up
again and struck Anderson in the back
of the^head, knocking him against the
door. Sheriff Claggett got wind of the
affray and arrested Veal and the jury
took immediate action. Anderson is
quite badly injured about the head and
it is said he may have trouble with nis
George Stanley, another of the Veal
party, was also indicted. So-far the
UNION has been unable to find whether
Stanley struck Anderson, but it has
discovered that the young man inter
fered to such an extent that assistance
could not be rendered the victim of
thei assault f^d in^he^yeaof thelaw
All day yesterday was. vspeB*wi6-
curing indictments, most o'fthem-'b^euig%
against the parties indicted the day
before. Three new ones were found,
two against E. P. Douglas, charging
him with conducting a gambling house,
and one against T. H. Caley, charging
him with maintaining a public nui
sance. For years Mr. Caley has had a
shed beside his building where he has
displayed his farm machinery in sea
son, and prom. ^its. have gathered
through the heat of the summer day,
but occasionally some one would dis
cover they had a grievance against him
and charge him with obstructing the
streets. This spring one fruitless at
tempt was made to remove the shed in
justice court and now the matter is in
the hands of the district court.
The case will create considerable in
terest. All the prisoners arraigned
oieaded not guilty and were ordered to.
appear in court Wednesday, April 10,
for trial.
The case of Jason O. Carter, indicted
at the last term for assault in the sec
ond degree, was tried and the defend
ant was found guilty of third degree
assault. He was fined $60 with the al
ternative of sixty days in the Henne
pin county jail in default of payment.
Of the other defendants E. F.- Doug
las was released on the deposit of $200
cash bail, U. L. Greenough under a
bond of $l,500and Ray, McGinnis, Veal
and Stanley were remanded to jail to
await trial.
The court then adjourned until
Wednesday, April 10, when the trial
of the criminal cases will be taken up.
The grand jury, having completed its
labors, will not be required to report
again, but the regular panel of the
petit jury must be present.
The criminal cases were deemed so
important that an assistant counsel
was secured for the county attorney.
The attorney general was requested to
send a representative, but being vnable
to do so, named George Stewart, of St.
Cloud his deputy for the time being.
The grand jury labored so persist
ently to ferret out the evil-doers that
it'has been termed'the "reform jury"
by the wags. If convictions follow the
indictments it will .have"performed
good service for the county.
Rev. IrlR. Hicks Say*April Will Be Such.
According to Rev. Irl R. Hicks it
will be wise to keep your weather eye
open throughout the present month.
While he doesn't announce any cata
clysm in his predictions for April, he
says there may be some very severe
storms tfi'at it will be well to watch
closely with the door to the cyclone
cellar wide open and all ordinary ob
structions out of the way The first of
the series is booked for this week.
Storms of a dangerous character are
not certain but "probable. For Thurs
day high temperatures are predicted
and low barometric readings with pos
sible hail and thunder storms of un
usual severity. iTbrnadoes for various
localities are t0 be expected during the
week. Mr. Hicks ^predicts warmer
weather for the middle of the month.
Between Sunday and Tuesday, the 14th
and- 16th, he says may occur sharp
storms of rain, hail, wind and thunder.
During the succeeding week very
threatening storms may be looked for
in the southern states. Another storm
period is predicted for the days be
tween the 24th and 28tb. The influ
ence of the storms of this period are
expected to reach up into the northern
states. A warm wave will precede the
storms. The dates are hot fixed ex
actly by Mr. Hicks, but only indicated
in a general way. The predictions are
interestingly put and furnish 'matter
for study.
County Fair.
If a county fair is to be held at
Princeton this fall it is timB steps were
taken to that end. Isanti county and
Cambridge merchants are working
hard for a fair to,be held at Cambridge
this fall. Should Mille Lacs county
and Princeton merchants be inactive
and let our county fair die out for the
want of interest? Is it right? I think
all should pull together and keep Mille
Lacs county to the front. Merchants,
business men, farmers, is it a matter of
dollars and cents with us only to be
gotten back at once four fold? Do we
not get it all back with good interest
in the advertising it does for our stores
our business and our farms?
A lack of interest has been mani
fested by the business men in several^
instances so far in some cases as to
decry the fairs and" say they, should be
given up. It is conceded by nearly
every one that last season's fair was
the best held for sbhie time, why not
continue and keepibuilding it up until
It is said that Mille Lacs county has
the best county fair in Minnesota?
Already exhibitors from Outside are'
making inquiries for space for

preparations for a successful fair. We
want the support and good will of all.
Let us begin*
come out to the
business meeting, hear last year's rer
port read, take steps toward putting
the fair association on its feet and
make Mille Lacs county keep in the
lead. Notice of date and'place for
meeting will be given next week.
The Council Met.
The regular meeting of the village
council occurred last Monday evening
and considerable business was trans
acted. The resignation of H. B. Jes
mer was received arid accepted and to
fill the vacancy caused by his removal
N. E. Jesmer was chosen. Several
complaints had been made to the coun
cil concerning the conduct of the tem
perance pool and billiaxd. room and
after considering the matter at length,
the council decided that all the slot
machines should be ordered out and a
warning given that a change must be
made in the manner of conducting busi
ness or further action would be taken.
The usual grist of bills was allowed
and then the council authorized an in
vestigation of the road tax matter. It
is estimated ttTat the village has paid
into the county treasury in road tax
during the past ten years at least $7,000
and out of this sum not a penny has
been expended in the corporate limits,.,
although there are more public thor
oughfares here than in any other sub
division of the county. The council
will endeavor to ascertain if some of
this cannot be obtained for use in the
village, and if not how it is possible
for the county to collect this tax.
Telephone Line.
A meeting will be held at Grange
Hall at 2 p. M. Tuesday, April 9, with
a view of organizing a Farmers Inde
pendent or Mutual Telephone and Ex
change Co. Its object the construction
(this spring if possible) of a telephone
line from Princeton to Wyanett and
Green Lake, and eventually extending
lines to other points. All farmers will
be given connection where desired
either on main line or through ex
changes. Several phones will be put 1
in at Princeton in order to put farmers I'
in, close touch with markets, doctors
and merchants. Everyone interested,
is invited to to,attend the meeting.
The Mississippi Valley Lumberman,
last week contained a_ very compli
mentary notice of Martin K. Rudd, the
gentlemanly manager of the Foley_
Bean plant at Milaca. The write-up
was accompanied by a splendid por-'
trait of Mr. Rudd.
