Poplar Standard: From infor
mation that can be gathered
from the coal dealers and from
A. E. Kelsey, who was appoint
ed coal administrator at the
meeting of the citizens last Sat
urday night, there is very jittle
change in the coal situation so
far as this city is concerned.
The business houses and pri
vate residences are not su'.fer
ing as yet but in most instances
the supply is limited. Mr. Kel
sey was notified yestei day that
there would be a car of coal in
noon and there are one or two
on the local freight this after
other cars in sight. The Fair
view mines, where Scott-Smith
obtains his coal, have finally
shut down but Mr. Smith is try
ing to get coal from another
source. Mr. Kelsey has made
arrangements to get several
cars from the Culbertson mines,
the first of which may be in to
day. The f? r' crs on the south
side are mining some coal and
will get out more if the weather
is favorable, so the situation
here is much the same as it was
when the big strike was first
At the business meeting of
the citizens last Saturday night,
A. E. Kelsey was appointed fuel
administrator and it was agreed
that he should have entire sup
ervision over all distribution of
coal both from the local mines
and of any shipped in.
As stated,, there is no suffer
ing at present and everyoiie is
provided for, but a sudden cold
snap or a further curtailnent
of the supply might cause a
serious shortage and in that
case it would be advisable to
have some one man responsible
for the distribution here and it
was the consensus of the meet
ing that Mr. Kelsey was the
man for the place. Anyone
wanting coal of any kind wheth
er from the outside mines or the
local mines are asked to place
their orders through Mr. Kel

Westby News: Tuesday the

four hours late and Wednesday
nearly five hours behind. The
freights pulled in with as much
whistling as the storm permit
ted. The only casualties re
ported on the railroad up to
Wednesday night is the death

drove to Grenora Monday in the
big blizzard, taking most of the
day to make the trip, complet

the way, as the storm had
grown worse and the horse was
about played out. They heard
that several horses had per
ished in the storm and saw one
that had died lying in the snow
with its colt standing beside it.
This had happened between
their going and coming.

wait until next spring for the
taxes to come in before they get
their money. All losses will be
paid by the state hail insurance
department on December 1, ac
cording to S. A. Olsness, com
missioner of insurance. Claims
will be paid by registered war
rant bearing six per cent inter
est, and will be redeemed by the
state as soon as the hail assess
ment is collected. Commision
er Olsness is of the opinion that
these warrants should be ac
cepted by all banks at par.

the money should be spent to
the best advantage and at the

Iowa, and returned home last
Otho enlisted at Spokane in
July, 1918, and from there was
sent to the training camps in
Texas. On November 12th, the
day after the armistice was
signed he sailed for Brest,
France, where he was stationed
most of the time, serving in the
Motor Transfer Corps as a me
Before returning home he
was granted the privilege of
viewing many cf the most im
portant battle fields of the late
war, and could also have had an
opportunity to visit Germany
before his return, but home
called him, so he decided to get
back to the states at once.
Perhaps one of the reasons
why politicians shy at giving
the returned service men a bon
us is the probability that all
who return to the farm would
squander $16 of it on a Nonpar
tisan membership.
