'iThat there arle no pro-Germanllls in the I- orte neighborhcmod is the opin iiioi since the mass mnloeting held at the Routllld Huttlt school house Thulrs day night of last weok. The l)purpose of thie meeting was to protest against and isquelch tIl rumor which has i been ciriculated rcently that the sen timent of that locality had a tendency to lean towards the pro-German views. It app¢.ars, hliwever, that the meeting cleared up the situation for there was lnot one of the large crowd present who w lid not declare himself to Ihe i red blooded American and a Istauncih supporter of the stars and etripes. While it is a. regrettable fact that almost every community has its German sympathizer, this com munity as far as is known. is strictly anti-German and loyal to the cause and therefore any evidences of dis loyalty would not he tolerated, but the offender would quickly he taken in hand and punished in the same manner as in the larger cities.w here almost daily large fines and Jail sen tences are imposed for seditious ut terances. - JAZZ DANCE 'I'e danllce scheduled for New Years night at the Ronan hall has been postponed until Thursday night, Jan. 3rd, when the famous Jazz orchestra of ,ilssoula will lbe here and furnish their best and latest donlee music.
