ATTEMPT MADE
TO BURN GOODMAN
RESIDENCE SUNDAY
It seems that Mrs. Goodman herd
come up town on a business errand.
and while the children were playing
in the house and the hired man was
also sitting in the residence, some
person or persons slipped around to
the west side of the house and placed
a large pile of kindling and after sat
urating the kindling with kerosene
and also the side of the house, the
fire bug touched a match to the
wood and disappeared in the dark
ness.
Firebugs Try to Burn Beautiful For
rest Goodman Home in Outskirts of
Plentywood While Mr. Goodman
W&s Away on Business.
Last Sunday evening between the
hour of 5:00 and 6:00 o'clock, an at
tempt was made by unknown parties
to bum the Forrest Goodman Resi
dence which lies on the eastern out
skirts of this city.
In the meantime Mrs. Goodipan had
finished her duties up town and was
returning home when she saw the
flames. She immediately called the
hired man who got some water and
quenched the fire which had iot got
ten sufficient start to prevent the
blaze from being extinguished with
the water from the pump.
The kindling was placed in such a
position so as to bum the telephone
wires as it leaped into the air and
thus prevent aid being called, giving
the blaze a better chance to develop
so as to be impossible to check until
it had devoured the residence.
A News notified by
reporter was
Jerry Powell, who has lived with the
Goodmans for years and who was call

was discovered, that the fire was not

Taxes In
Sheridan
County
i
County Taxes Lower But City
and School Taxes are High
er in Most Places.
MUST FOLLOW ACTION
OF COUNTY OFFICIALS
The mailing of tee annual tax
statements from the office ct the
County Treasurer is almost comp 1 et cd.
With each tax notice a letter of in
struction is sent explaining the new
law providing for the semi-annual
pay met of real property taxes—with
the exception of city Special Improve
ment taxes—-and outlining the riY vhI
of payment. We note that ilÿs let
ter also cal's attenricn to the reduc
tion of one mill which was'nude in
the county levy this year.
Most of the tas t - - w ill find ' r
j taxes lower thio year on an equa»
| valuation basis as compared with last
1 year; others will find them higher,
either on account of higher valua
tions or on account of increases in
the City, Town or School District
levies. It is well to remember that
the levies for City, Town or School
District purposes is a local matter
for each city, town or school district,
and can not be confused with the
county taxes,
In many cases the levies for School
Districts, Town or City taxes have
been increased, either on account of
large indebtedness or on account of
additional expenditures made by them
for divers reasons. In a few in
stances the levies for the School Dis
tricts, Towns or Cities have been low
ered, but the increases are many more
than the decreases and the taxpayers
should take special note of all i
creases.

lower the taxes and there should be
no valid reason for not doing what
the county government hag demon
strated that can be done. If a City,
School District or Town is persist

purpose of operating its institutions
or its government, it is time to mves

In many cases throughout Sheridan
County, the local municipalities are
making no headway toward liquidât
In fact
ing their outstanding debts,
this is true in most cases. In other
cases the local municipality is actual

and bounds. In other words, it is not
only spendig what is raised by the ev
er-increasing tax levy, but is actually
loading additional burdens on the
future.

i" 01 d Gang" Tries To
Frame-Up Something
Plentywood Bunch That Has Always Opposed Producers
News and Farmers Again t ry to Injure Farmers' Paper
By Using Hospital as the Goat.
EFFORTS WILL FAIL AS THEY ALWAYS DOi
Reports from various sources dis
close that a number of "soreheads"
in and about Plentywood have taken
to» heart an article which appeared in
the Producers News in the issue of
November 16th, relative to alleged
misconducts and unethical practices on
the part of Drs. Sells and Storkan in
removing one, Louis Ehrmantraut,
from the Outlook Hospital to the
Plentywciod Hospital a few hours af
ter he was operated upon at the
former place. Mr. Ehrmantraut died
a few days after the transfer took
place.
These "soreheads" wail and wring
their hands and accuse the Producers
New of bending its effort to ruin and
discredit the Plentywood hospital.
Not one person in Sheridan county,
nor anywheres else will see a single
word against the Plentywood hospital
in the article referred to and the Pro
ducers News has never at any time
knocked the Plentywood hospital nor
any other hospitals. These persons,
who are all well known to the Pro
ducers News, are deliberately trying
to misconstrue the article as a knock
against the Plentywood hospital,
thereby hoping to create adverse sen
timent towards the farmers' paper and

is not the first time that a certain
clique has attempted to discredit the
Producers News. Many similar ef
forts have been made in the past, in
most instances, when the Producers
News has attempted to publish the
truth, but which might frustrate some
evil design of some greedy co* crim
inal person.
The article was designed to elimin
ate evil practices in the medical pro
fession to the detriment of the public
at large. Many instances of very
serious consequence have been called
to the attention of the Producers
New s regarding the Plentywood doc
tors, but which we refrained from
publishing in order to avoid adverse
sentiment which the doctors always
attempt to stir up whenever their
practices are criticized. We find,
however, that the majority of the
people want to know the facts and we
were pleasantly surprised at the un
usually large number of new subscrib

car from Frank Barge who also makes

Pederson claims that it was a stolen
car when Nichols bought it and that
Nichols had no more right to it than
he did and Mr. Pederson refused to
let Nichols take the car and placed
the machine in the hands of Sheriff
Salisbury until the legal owner could
be found.
There will no doubt be further de

meantime the officials are making a

Outlook, Mont., Nov 21,
Editor Producers News,
Plentywood, Mont.
Dear Sir:
Please correct the statement in your
article of last week to the effect that
I was instrumenta? in having j»lr.
Ehrmantraut moved from the Out
look General Hospital to the Sheridan
County Memorial Hospital. As a
matter of fact, I never talked to the
Plentywood doctors at all. I did not
know that they had been called until
aft rethey had gone back home.
Please do me the justice, too, to
publish my statement that I have
never knocked the Outlook Hospital.
I have never turned down a call for
help from this hospital, contributing
always my share in money or in mer
chandise. whenever called on to do so.
This is indeed a mc»st unfortunate
affair f«r all concerned; and I trust

DR. J. C STORKAN FILES CRIMINAL
COMPLAINT AGAINST EDITOR TAYLOR
Last Thursday evening. Dr. J. C. Storkan of Plen
tywood filed a complaint against Charles E. Taylor,
editor of the Producers News, charging him with crim
inal libel in connection with an article published in the
Producers News.
The case will be watched with great interest by
the people of Sheridan County and many sensational de
velopments will be brought out no doubt at the trial.
This will undoubtedly result in the exhumation of
the body of Mr. Ehrmantraut for further investiga
tion.

J. W, Andei-son, former State Sen
ator from Richland county and can
didate for the U. S. Senate on the Re
publican ticket in 1922, backed by the
Farmer-Labor forces of the state, and
the Chairman of the Executive Com
mittee of the Farmer-Labor Party of
Monta, will lecture on the needs of a
Farmer-Labor party in the state and
nation.
Mr. Andêrson is c»ne of the fore
most student of Economics and Poli
tical Science in the United States.; he
is also one of the ablest speakers.
At this time, during the period of
birth of the New Party, it is plainly
the duty of every good citizen to in
form himself upon this vital issue,
whether one believes in the need of the
formation of a new party or not. It
is therefore urged that every think
ing citizen come to these lectures op
en minded to weigh and consider the
merits of the issues.
This is the foremost and most
momentous issue in the United States
today. A small admission fee of 26
cents will probably be charged to
defray expenses of the speaker.

follows:
