Cottonwood Paper Sold by Shutt to Coeur d'Alene Man CHANGE IS WITHOUT POLITICAL: SIGNIFICANCE, SAYS NEW PUBLISHER. Change in ownership of the Cotton wood Chronicle does not have political significance, according to II. C. Bailey, lit* 5 new publisher of that newspaper, who was in Orangeville Sunday, in com pany with S. P. Shutt, retiring publisher. and Howard Shutt, foreman of the Chronicle office, who will retain his position under the new management. Since tho general election is not far off, and a fierce political campaign is being waged in tho state, it was felt in some quarters that the change of ownership of the Chronicle might havq been brought about in order to prom ate tho interests of certain nominees, but this Mr. Bailey emphatically denied.
