Feud Over Town's Affairs.
The situation In Kelllber Is the cli
max to a prolonged feud between two
factions of dtlasns who have disagreed
aa to the best policy of administering
the affairs of the town. Rydett has
been the leader of one faction, and
charges of maladministration of the
town's affairs have been bandied back
and forth for many months.
Some months ago A. J. MoClcnnan
came to KeUlher from Winnipeg and took
over the general store business of
Bralnthwalte AUen. He applied to
the bank of British North America for
a line of credit, which is said to have
been refused. At any rate, McClennan
launched a project for a new bank In
a town near KeUlher.
Opposition to the new bank developed.
The opposition waa headed by Rydett
At meetings of cltisens called by Mc
Clennan to discuss the bank project,
members of the Rydett faction were
ejected. Old quarrels were revived, the
dissension grew, and threats of violence
were made. Finally, after a conference
amon Uie leadera of the Rydett fac
tion, hand bills were distributed In the
town attacking McClennan and his
friends. In the handllls McClennan was
railed "a lollypop and four-flusher."
Editor Tarred and Feathered.
Friday night, as Rydett was entering
his office, he was attacked by six men.
He resisted, but the assailants overcame
him and gave him a severe beating.
Then, taking him Into his office, they
stripped him and applied a coat of tar
and feathers. The men were Inter
rupted as they were gagging Rydett.
the alarm was given and tho streets
were soon thronged with armed men.
V. Hartley, a hardware dealer, was nr
rested. Since then KeUlher has practically
been under martial law. It was feared
for a time that there would be a pitched
battle on the street, and an appeal wjh
sent to Regina for help. Saturday
Hartley was arranged by Justice of
tho Peace Morrison, but the case
against him was dismissed fur lack of
evidence. At the same time the Justice
Issued permits for members of the Mc
Clennan faction to carry guns. The
Rydett men responded by arming them
selves tn defiance of the law. A second
appeal waa sent to Regina for help, and
today a detachment of mounted po'leo
started for KeUlher,
