Mrs. Davit Has Not Declined the State
Democratic Nomination— No
Official Notification.
Reports to the contrary notwith
standing, posi
tively that she has declined the rem
ocratic nomination for state superin

"Several days ago I received a notice
to the effect that a meeting of the
democratic state central committee
would be held in Orand Forks," said
Mrs. Davis. "I wrote the secretary,
informing him that I would not be able
to attend the meeting, but said noth
ing in the letter about not accepting
the nomination, for I have not yet re
ceived official notice that 1 had re

Fargo Man fiitrns Porch Light to Dis
pel Darkness Which Is the
Burglar's Friend.
A ibrewd Fargo business man who
'hM been thinking some on the sub
ject said this morning: "In view of
the fact that always ait this time csf
the year thia locality Is infested with
the usual run of tramps, burglars,
porch climbers and crooks, I have de
vised a very simple scheme to pro
tect my house aad I .believe it does
the business. I leave my poirch light
burning all night it not only lights
up the porch but tihe front yard also,
and brings into view anyone loitering
in the neighborhood. It is almost a
cinch t'hat no one would attempt to
climb my porch with the light burn
ing, so myself and family feel un
usually safe this season. My mention
ing this plan to my neighbors has re
sulted in the burning of all the porch
lights in the block, so one protects
the other with its light."
'lYiere have already been several! res
idences broken into this fail so it
seems that this business man's
scheme would appeal to every citizen
who i« desirous of protecting his home
It is obvious that the
burning of porch lights regularly will
be of great assistance to the police

Men From Aneta and Ayr the Victims
—Lake Claims He Thought They
Were Burglars.
As result of Frank leaks'* unerr
ing aim, O. M. Omstad of Aneta and
Charles Mitchell of Ayr are confined
in the county hoe-pital, the former with
a bullet in one of his legs and the lat
ter with bullets in each of his legs.
Frank Lake is confined in the city
jail pending an investigation.
The stories concerning the afTair in
which two men were shot are con
flicting and State's Attorney Burnett
Is eiVgaged today in investigating the
different versions of the affair.
It appears that Mitchell has long
been a patron of Frank Lake's hollow
resort. He has made a practice of
stopping at the Lake place whenever
he visits Fargo and, when he arrived
in the city a couple of days ago, he
made no exception to his usual cus
tom but engaged a room there.
Late yesterday afternoon, Mitchell
went to Moorhead. There he met
Omstad and the two spent the even
in-g in a saloon. About 11 o'clock they
started for Fturgo. Mitchell invited
Omstad to spend the night with him
in his room in Lake's place. Omstad
accepted the invitation, but, when
they arrived at the Lake place, they
found the front door locked.
"When the door is locked early, I
always go in the back door," said
Mitchell, and the two men went tb the
rear of the house.
Mitchell started to open the rear
door when Lake appeared eta. fthet
scene, armed with a revolver. He
fired one shot which took effect in
Omstad's leg.
"Don't shoot, Frank," cried Mitchell.
"It's Charlie."
But Lake continued to putt the trig
ger of his revolver amd a bullet was
lodged in each of Mitchell's legs.
The police appeared on the scene
promptly. The two injured men were
.taken 'to the county hospital for treat
ment and Lake was lodged la the
county jail.
Ijake claim® that the two ipen were
trying to break into his house and
that he was justified In shooting.
This i« not Lake's first shooting ex
perience in Fargo. He has been in
trouble frequently and last spring was
arrested on a charge of assault with
a deadly weapon. Ray Hamilton made
the complaint against l^ake at that
time and the case has never been dis
posed of.

boiler room, an office and a residence.
All of these buildings are rapidly near
