ridina from Sandnoint to this citv on
riding from sanopoint to inis city on

was caotured bv J B Brodv near the

Kitcnen & Kelly camp siding, is a
paroled prisoner of the Montana pen

fellow gave bis name as Dan Mein
leuow gave nis name as uan 1>1C1I1
tosh to Sheriff Dunning soon after
his arrest. It has now been found
th»* bis real name is Arthur Cox- at
least this is the name he Is known by
at the Montana uenitentiarv
One dav last week Cox tried to slit)
a better out of the jail without the
knowledge of Sheriff Dunning. This|
letter was addressed to the warden of
the Deerlodge penitentiary and in it,
Cox stated that he w T as in the Bound
ary county jail and he asked that the
warden send for him in order that he
might go back to Deerlodge and finish
his term.
Sheriff Dunning wrote to the warden
of the Deerlodge penitentiary in regard j
to the record of Cox and was advised,
that the man was sent to the pen in
1914 to serve a six year sentence for
safe breaking and that he w'as out on
parole.
The local authorities are certain
they have a bad man in Cox and that
he is an old offender. County Attor
ney Wilson states that Cox will be
held here and it found guilty in the |
district court the minimum sentence j
will be five years in the state penl- j
tentiary. In writing to the warden j
of the Montana prison Cox figured
that it would be better to go back to |
Deerlodge to finish his term than to]
take a chance in the courts here on a
robbery charge and likely have a five
year term here after which the re
mainder of the term at Deerlodge
would have to be served. |
The developments which have come
to light in the case of Cox shows that!
Probate Judge Henderson and County
Attorney Wilson used good judgment
at the time of Cox's preliminary hear-1

Ü. S. SOLDIER IN FRANCE
APPEALS FOR UNITY OF PURPOSE
, a D „ ■■ A
pany, 3rd Battalion, 146th Field Artil
lery, now in active service in France,
he says, "Mother have the lines in
brackets published so the whole coun
ty may read and take heed. I have
been in France for - months now
and have had a fairly good chance to
study conditions as existing. I am go- I
ing to take a chance on telling you the |
truth about things as I see them. Of,
course this is only my viewpoint but I
have met French people of all classes
and in different parts of the country,
so my ideas are probably not without I
some merit. |
First: let every American rid them -1
selves of the Quixotic notion that we
are helping France. Such ideas of
altruistic motives between nations are
absurd; we owe nothing to France
that requires a single life of an Amerl
can to cancel. Nor do the French
consider us as being in such a posi
tlon; in fact there seems to be a feel-1
ing that we are very laggard about
getting into the scrap and as for us
being their savlors-perish the fliought.
But we are fighting a very real men
ace to our own country and to our
ideals; one that is going to take every
ounze of our energy and more than
likely most of the nation's wealth, to
overcome; an enemy who does not un
derstand our viewpoint; whose phllos
ophy Is more degenerate than that of
Machiavelli; whose temperament, na
turally brutal, has become after three
years of war, awful beyond descrip
tlon. A nation fully prepared, strong
in resourcefulness and cunning, with
out morals or pity and welded to
gether with a unity of national thought,
which although rotten when judged by
our standards, is nevertheless a prime
requisite of any nation In wartime,
Let every American abandon thought
ot peace; peace at this time would be
equivalent to signing our own death
