C. N. Cramer Co’s. Big Safe Blown
With Nitro Glycerine
It Seems Certain that the Same men Who
Have Committed Other Robberies in
Washburn are Responsible for
Latest Piece of Work.
The big safe at the C. N. Cramer
& Company warehouse was blown
last Thursday night, and a sum of
money running up to about forty
dollars was taken. Besides this the
safe, which was valued at nearly
four hundred dollars, and was con
sidered one of the the best ip, the
city, was completely ruined. ' Three
charges of nitro-glycerine Were
used, and the steel chest was blown
to pieces, as also were the doors and
other parts of the safe. The reports
were heard by several people, but
there was no alarm giveu, and the
robbers carried out their work un
molested. The first theory advanced
was that the work was that of pro
fessionals, but in the face of the work
done and all the circumstances, this
theory does not hold good. 'Un
doubtedly the same people who have
done other jobs of burglarizing in
Washburn are the ones who blew
the Crammer safe. And unless
these men are brought to time soon
there will undoubtedly be other de
pridations. There are some bad
men in Washburn, and the}' have
been responsible for several very
clumsy pieces of work, and it would
seem that the police officers should
land some of these people before
long. Just what clues the officers
are working on The Times is not
permitted to state, but progress is
being made, and there is likely to be
something sensational at most any
tin- •.

schools have departed from the city.

up their school work again, while

Commencement Exercises.
Commencement exercises were
held at the Opera House last Friday
night, and the building was filled
with patrons of the school and other
citizens. The room had been very
appropriately decorated for the
event, the motto hanging over
a stage rich in decorations. The
class of eleven graduates occupied
easy chairs on the platform, and
President L. N. Clausen, Principal
S. A. Oscar and Professor H. W.
Rood, the speaker of the evening,
were in evidence. The address
of Professor Rood was a good one,
and left a deep and lasting impres
sion upon the graduates, and was
well received bv the audience. Mr.
Clausen’s presentation was well
worded and well rtceived. Mr.
Oscar and the graduates were given
a hearty welcome, and the approval
of their year of high school work was
shown in the response of the
audience. The class is one of the
best that has ever graduated from
our schools, and they start out in
life with the best wishes of everyone.
Captures the Wing Scholarship.
Miss Ida Tetzner., of the graduat
ing class, has received the $1(0
Wing scholarship, having stood
higher in her class than any of the
other eleven graduates. Her stand
ing was over ninety percent. Guy
Warden was a close second, there
being but a small margin in the dif
ference between his markings and
those of Miss Tetzner. Each year
the scholar having the highest mark
ings receives one hundred dollars
from the earnings of the sum of
mouev set aside several years ago by
Colonel Wing.'
Given a Farewell Banquet. ,
A farewell banquet was given at
Hotel Washburn Tuesday evening in
honor of Frank Dußoise, who has
been at work for the Edward Hines
Lumber, for the past two or three
years, and who leaves in a few days
for the west, where he will remain.
Covers were laid for twenty persons,
and the affair was said to be a
$2.00 PER YEAR.
Work of Takiny Census to Commence
June 20.
County Clerk is Sending Out Neeessary
Forms to Town and City Clerks, Who
Are to Make the OfTic ial Count
for the State Census.
County Clerk N. M. Oscar has
received blanks from the secretary
of state for the taking of the state
census for 1905, and he is sending
these out to the numerous town and
city*clerks of the county this week.
The census is to commence on the
morning of June 20th. and is to be
taken by various town and city
clerks, who are obliged to make their
returns to the county clerk. At the
office of the countyclerks the names
are re-copied and classified and sent
to the state department, where they
become a matter of permanent re—•
cord. The clerks in the towns are
allowed three dollars for each hund
red names. In the city of Wash
bur i\ the clerk will receive but $1.50
for each hundred names. But in
addition he will receive $1.50 per
hundred names for classifying all
persons eligible for service in the
state militia, and renumeration for
other clasifications. The census
blanks provide for complete statis
tics as to manufatures, mining
agriculture, foreign popultation, col
or, sex, age, whether single or mar
ried, parentage, nativity, occupa
tion, property ownership, months
employed during the year, etc. The
census dates from June Ist, so that
any child born between the first of
the month and the twentieth will
not be counted.
The people in the county should
lend every' assistance to *the census
takers, and see to it that every name
is given in. It is a big job for any
one person to tai:e the census of any
of the towns, or of the city of Wash
burn, and there must be assistance
tendered from every person. Let
the number of names be complete, so
that it can be shown up that Bay
field oounty is getting to the front.
It is more than likely' that the Com
mercial Club of this city, will give
its attention to the work, and help
see to it that none are missed in
the count. v
