ENNIS KRUEGER KILLED The Two Other Krueger Brothers Are Still at Large The Country Near Owen Thoroughly Searched But No Trace Found—May Be Aided by Friends The search for the Krueger’s near Owen, Wis., still continues without success. Frank Krueger, the brother who was wounded, has been taken to St. Joseph’s hospital at Chippewa Falls and the mother is in jail at Eau Claire. The members of the 10th Infantry, who were called from Wausau to Owen on Monday, enforcing the 200 or more citizens, who were searching the country, returned Wednesday. Some of the company came home in the morning in autos, while the main body returned Wednesday afternoon by train, leaving a guard of six men at the farm, who returned here Thurs- day afternoon. They bring the story of a prosperous farm family, with a home, stock and farm worth some $40,000. On religious and other prin ciples, they were opposed to the war, and four boys evaded the draft—two registered and failed to present them selves whet called and the other two failed to register. When the officials appeared to make arrests, the battle ensued, which resulted in the killing of Harry Jensen, depot agent at Withee, and the wounding of five others. All will live, it is thought, but Emil Liano, who was very serious ly wounded. Tlio funeral of Jensen took place on Wednesday, from his home. He leaves a wife and three children. The large barn which was burned in the course of the battle, was filled with hay, wool, etc., and the loss runs up to five or six thousand dollars. Those of the Wausau company at the scene of battle say that part of the country in the neighborhood of the Krueger farm is a dense jungle, ir. which are numerous windfalls and much of it a swamp, making it diffi cult to get over, however, a great part of the forest was covered by the 10th Infantry. While the company were at the Krueger farm, every young man who passed the guards was asked to pro due* his registration card, in this way a number were rounded up who did not have them. Two from Wausau, who could not show cards were Jesse G. and A. F. Drost. They were handed over to the Deputy U. S. marshal. Emil Laino, who Is in the hospital says: “I with other citizens of Withee went to the Krueger home after they resisted the authorities who went to the place to get them to register. The Krueger family was barricaded in the house and were firing in all directions. I crawled on my hands and knees, concealing myself as good as possible in the long grass, toward the house but they must have seen me and judging from the way the bul lets came there must have been more LIBERTY LOAN ORGANIZATION That for Wausau Has Been Com pleted and Its Personnel Assures Success The Wausau organization for the fourth Liberty loan has been com pleted, and its personnel is sufficient to insure our going “over the top” very shortly after the sale begins, and very much over in buying the quota that the government has assigned to us. At the head of the organization as the county chairman is C. S. Gilbert, with Cyrus C. Yawkey as city chair man. These two men will be assisted by a small army of workers serving on several important committees cov ering various campaign activities, and different sections of the community. C. C. Yawkey, city chairman, sent out the past week a circular letter to about 250 drafted salesmen, informing them of the action and the fact that the first meeting would be held at the city hall, in the council chamber, on Sunday afternoon at 2 o’clock. This, meeting was held at the appointed time and Mi-. Yawkey explained the campaign as planned. Geo. W. Phil lips, vice-chairman, also explained as to how the city will be canvassed. It was explained that the ladies campaign would be changed some what; that the ladies’ committee would canvass societies and teachers, and not make as active a house to house canvass as formerly. On Friday night the salesmen are to meet again at the city hall, for a further completion of the work, which is to begin on Saturday morning. Sept. 28th.

One hundred and fifty-four men will leave at this time, ninety-five from the First district c i fifty-nine from the Second district. than two doing the shooting. They must have fired at least twenty-five shots at me besides the four that hit me. I was picked up about three hours after I was wounded.” “If any of the members of the Krueger family are arraigned under a federal murder charge, they will be tried under a law which prescribes death as a maximum penalty,” said one of the officials of the United States department of justice. “Frank Krueger, one of the sons, and his aged mother, are being held under a charge of first degree manslaughter, and as the matter arose over a federal affair, it is likely that they will be arraigned on a federal charge of manslaughter, which carrries a maximum penalty of twenty years’ imprisonment. The se lective service evasion act carries a maximum penalty of one year’s im prisonment.” The following has been sent out by the State Department of Justice at Madison: WANTED! 3 Krueger brothers.
