Buol and Pamilv Move to the Southwest. TO MAKE PERMANENT HOME. Mr, Buol. who Has Long Been a Promin ent Cltzen of Bayfield County Cast Lpt With the People in a New Country. Frank A. Buol left today with his family for Las Vegas, Neva da, where they will make their future home. Mr. Buol has spent the last two months in the Nevada town, and has engaged in real estate and other lines of business with his brother, and is satisfied that Nevada and par ticularly Las Vegas will fill all his wants for a home, and he says his lot has been permanent ly cast with that place. Al though Mr. Buol never has been a resident of this city, he came here for his bride and married one of Washburn’s best known young ladies, and the great num ber of Mrs. Buol’s friends feel a particular interest in her in the new home she is to have with her husband. Mr. Buol is per haps as well known, too, in this city, as any man in the county who has not actually resided here. For.many years he was * * at the head of large enterprises at Mason and Bibon, and during several years of that time he was town chairman of his town, and as a member of the county board, in which body he was a zealous and faithful official, al ways work for what he be lieved to be to the best interests of the public. Perhaps no man who ever served on the county board was as prominent in its afiairs as Mr. Buol. He started in to remedy some of the meth | ods in county affairs which he j believed to be wrong, and al though he stepped on a good | many people’s toes, no one ever ! questioned his honest motives. | Bayfield county has lost a valua ble citizen and a worthy family, and they are just such people as are needed in the new western country to bring it to the place lit deserves in the eye of the nation. Frank Buol is a hustler of the first order, and he ought to be able to accumulate a for tune with the opportunities that present themselves in anew country, and his friends here sincerely hope that such will be the result of his efforts. Married in Chicago. The marriage oi Charles W. Lay ton. of this city, and Miss Alice E. Porter, of Chicago, took place in the latter city, in one of Chicago’s Unitarian churches, the ceremony being performed in the immediate presence of the contracting parties, by the Reverend Llyod Jenkins Jones. Only a few of Mr. Layton’s friends knew of his intentions;when he left here for Chicago last week, but when he returned yesterday morning it was plainly visible that some event of unusual importance had happened to lend brighter smiles to his always affable counten ance. Mr. Layton is agent for the | Omaha railroad in this city, while ■toe bride conducts a large dress- I making establishment in Chicago, j She did not return home with her huabaLd, but will be in Washburn within a short time. The Times and many other friends extend their heartiest congratulations and best wishes to Mr. and Mrs. Layton. Notes ofthe M. E.

The council undoubtedly feels that they do not want to enter into any more bad bargains with the electric lighting company, and are holding off to get the matter settled rightly. The electric light company, on the other hand, are anxious to get a contarct of some kind, and when it comes to a show down will likely be willing to accept about what the lights are worth. Tne contract for lighting expires in the course of a few Weeks, it seems something should be done to continue to light the streets. A large number of tax payers have expressed them selves in favor of entirely shut ting off the street lights for the purpose of saving the large amount of money being paid for lights, by the city. While the contract cf the company expires in October the fact should not be loss sight of that the company’s franchise lasts for another year. The city would do well, should any arrangements be made with the lighting company to not make them for a longer period than one year, or to insist at this time that the franchise and the contract be made to expire at the same time. The city council would do well to invite competition in this matter, and if they do they will find it to the benefit of the tax payers. And the city council would do well to ask some of the companies engaged in the manu facturing of gasoline street lights to make a display of what their lights will do on the streets of Washburn. These companies supply lamps of any candle power up to twelve hundred candle power, and even more. The lights are said to be a suc cess, and it ought to cost noth ing or practically nothing, to give them a test on Washburn’s streets, where the people can see the result. The manufactur ers of these street lights claim that they can be operated for one-third what it costs to oper ate electric lights, and that they are reliable in every way. The city council ought to order a trial, and they ought to go out into the •‘market” and find what other people and other methods of lighting aside from that of the local company can be had for. The Times does not assume to tell the members of the city council their business, but given these things in the way of suggestions, because we believe they ought to be said and there is no evidence up to date that the council is not doing just whe t they believe to be fair and square. Individual members of the council have stated that they were not in favor of the proposi- WASHBURN (L -Operative J^tore. INCORPORATED. CHAS. PETERSON, Manager. Our Success in Business It is due largely to the way in which w r e deal with our customers and also in the quality of our goods and the prices at which they are sold. You will always find in dealing at our store that the two things we lead in are the Quality of the Groceries and the Lowness of the Prices. Your order always receives our prompt and care attention. Give us the Next Order. tion of the lighting company to submit the matter to three peo ple, one to be selected by the company, one by the council, and one by the two. Perhaps they are right in this and perhaps they are not. In case this is done the result of the findings of this commission should not, in any event, be made binding upon the city as to its acceptance Such a course of investigation would bring out a full report as to the conditions, and place the matter in a fair manner before the conncil, so that they might know how to act, In connection with this matter The Times believes it might be all right to have such a commis sion, the council selecting some citizen to act for them, and to furnish them full and absolute information, the only condition being that the commission be not tied down by any strings not to make a full report as to the can dle power of lights, the cost of the production, etc. The Times has endeavored from the first to treat the elec tric lighting company fairly, and we believe we have been doing that very thing. Our contention has been that the city of Wash burn has paid and is paying to the Washburn Electric Light and Power company double what it ought to be paying—that if the present arrangement is continu ed that the city council will be quilty of squandering from two to three thousand dollars annual ly of public money The Times has been teliingthe truth, and for doing that we have incurred the hostility of the Electric Lighting Company. We have said nothing personal about those gentlemen, ana do not be lieve it will be necessary to, but perhaps they will learn after a time that The Times is not go ing to be bulldozed or muzzled ; and that when we want to dis - cuss a public question that no man, or set of men. are going to put any screws to our actions that will altar our course one 1 whit. Long years ago The Times ceased to be a personal organ, | and from our long experience we have learned that such things have no place in a newspaper. Our policy has been, and will be as long as we run a newspaper, and with the editor ever after wards, as an individual, to do what we believe to be fair and square with every man. without malice, and each night we ex pect.to be able to look every blamed man square in eye and tell him to go chase himself. And furthermore, The Times never shirks in its obligation tor the people, and its editor never learned how to run, always pre ferring to be licked, if necessary rather than to usa our heels. And we will continue to tell the truth and no man or set of men can make us do otherwise. No man, woman or child, or even corporation, will be maligned or $2.00 PER YEAR. HAST SCOTT Change of Owners for the Perry Boat. CAPT. TURGEOIV TO 00 AWAY, The Boat Has Been Sold to Captain Joha Doherty and he will Take Charge of the Craft the First of the Comins Month. . V* * -_ .- - .... . Captain William Targeon, who has run the Steamer Mary Scott for a number of years, has just sold the boat to Captain John Doherty, and the lattet* will take charge of the boat the first of the month. Cap tain Purgeon has three children in California, and they have been anxious that he should be with them, aud for that reason he has sold his boat and will go to the western coast, and build a boat and continue in the same line of work that has taken his life time. And with him will go the best wishes of hundreds of people on Chequamegon bay who have at some time or other ridden on the Mary Scott and became acquainted with the genial Captain. Captain Doherty is well known the people on the bay, his home hav ing been in Ashland for a number of years, and he will undoubtedly make a success of the new venture —there is no reason why he should not. : 1 ~:■ lied about through this paper; but if this paper and its editor choose to say that a public ser vice corporation is getting, and trying to get, too much from the public purse for what it is giving in return, that is our own busi ness, and we won’t say such things unless they can be pro ven. And if any man, woman or child, corporation, or any one else, will come to us and show where in The Times or its editor has ever intentionally wronged or injured them in any particu lar, we will make reparation in the best manner possible. THE TIMES STANDS FOR THE PEOPLE AND NOT FOR ANY CLICK, AND SO DOES IT’S EDITOR, and no one is big enough to tell either the paper or it’s editor w T here to head in. Remember that, and see if it is not proven in the future, and in quire of those who know whe ther it has not been true in the past. [Editor’s Note: When the above was placed in type negotiations were pending for the sale of The Times, but the matter was unsettled. Since that time the transfer has been made.

However as the article is pertinent to the question, we pub lish it with this explanation.] Congregational Church Service Last regular communion service next Sunday at the morning hour of worship 10:30.
