gsv A" I (V lit 1 jS 0. Kr"'. Page Twelv Williams county wil lhave two more incorporated towns within a few weeks if plans now under way are carried out as anticipated. Wildrose, with a population of several hundred people and bearin gthe distinction of being the point of origination of more shipping in the wheat trade than any other point in the U. S. several years ago, is ready for the step and a cam paign is being waged by the business interests of the town to win for in corporation as a city on October 4, when the special election is held. Grenora, Williams county's newest town on the Stanley branch, scarcely a year old and with a population of over 500 is not going to wait to be come of age before it will incorpor ate. One of the great problems this town has is suitable quarters for schools and with the country district controlling many of the children will have to go to school in the country. Therefore it has been decided to in corporate the city and petitions are now in circulation, with the proba bility of a special election next month. Both of these towns have had more or less trouble keeping things order ly and it is believed this problem will be solved with a city government run ning things. Grenora had a near mur der a few weeks ago and also has a great deal of trouble with liquor vio lations as it is close to the Montana line and without any police protec tion. Grenora had its second fire within a month when the Salsbury-Linegard feed barn burned to the ground despite the fact that practically the entire population of Grenora was out fight ing fire. Charles Salsbury, proprietor of the barn, was asleep in the barn and was awakened by the crackling of the flames. He immediately gave the alarm and turned his attention to sav ing horses in the barn. He was suc cessful in saving a valuable horse he longing to Hagen Bros and Harting, and also several other horses of cus tomers, but was unfortunate in loos ing some of his own teams. When the barn was found to be on fire, the voluntary fire department turned its attention to Hoehn and Hamre machine shop and this was saved. The damage done by the fire is estimated at $2000. part of which is covered by insurance. The origin of the fire is unknown, and investigation is being made to determine just how it happened. Sev eral men slept in the loft the night before, and it is thought that they caused the fire, but whether by van dalism or accident, has not been dis covered.

Wiltz left town going south just af ter Frank Charelli reportedv the loss of $53.00 cash and a fifty dollar watch to the Williston police. Charelli sus pected Wiltz of the robbery and Chief Nolan at once sent a discription of the negro to the police at Minot which resulted in the arrest. Deputy Sheriff Evanstad went there Saturday returning with Wiltz and also with the watch which was found in his possession. He was arraigned in H. V. SmitlTs court yesterday afternoon charged with burglary in the first degree, and the Minot policeman who arrested him testified that the watch was found on him, when he was booked at the station. Wiltz employed Burdick and Con-' verse to defend him and at their re quest the case was continued until Monday morning when Wiltz claims he will have witnesses to prove an alabi. He claims that he got the watch from another negro and says he knows nothing about the robbery. He is being held in default of bond. REV. ELLSWORTH STAYS TO FINALS Williston Minister Represents Local Club—Company E Feature At McKenzie Fair With a great many Williams Coun ty people in attendance, and Company E of this city one of the main attrac tions, the McKenzie County Fair at Alexander last Thursday and Friday was one of the best ever held. The Williston Band and Company E put on a military dress parade, and was one of the big features. There was ample amusement and one of the chief attractions was a tennis match in which a number of Williston men participated. Rev. N. E. Ellsworth played in three matches, going as far as the finals in the doubles which were finally won by White and Mc Intyre of Donnybrook. Owen Harding of this city and private Baake who is now here with Company E also par ticipated in the meet. Rain caused a shortening up of the program and the single events were not finished for that reason. The Company E boys from this city were very well treated at the fair, and those who hiked half way got some real soldier experience. WILU8T0N GRAPHIC "Jack EDITOR SAYS:- STOP THROWING WRENCHES Petersburg, N. D., Sept. 20.—"I have been drafted, examined and passed, I did not offer any exemp tion. There is only one thing that I demand of this community," writes William W. Weatherby, edi tor of The Petersburg Record. "Stop throwing wrenches into the cogs of the machinery that is run ning this government. Stop agi tation against this war. Those of you who are against this war and against sending troops to France are against sending cmfwypcmm are against your country, and you are not doing your bit. I am sure that after this war those who come back will check you up, and those of you who have turned your backs on us now will be held respon sible. I am sacrificing a happy home, a wife and my business to go across the ocean and fight the battle for those who stay at home? I am not alone—there are thous ands of other young men who are doing as much. Do we deserve your support? If so, then stop blocking, stop arguing, stop agi tating, get busy and do your part." Editor Weatherby was one of the first Nelson county men called for service and he is now on duty at Camp Dodge, Des Moines. RIOT CALL FOR FARMERS FIGHT Sheriff Strom and Load of Officials Arrest Three Men After Bloody Mixup A riot call from half a dozen sep arate telephones twenty five miles north west of town Tuesday after noon, took an auto load of county officers and a physician with a full Red Cross equipment to settle a small war that had occurred on the Rasmus Fedge place in that vicinity. Sheriff Strom received the call and the request to bring a physician at once. He took with him state's attor ney W. G. Owens, Deputy Evanstad, and Dr. F. W. MacManus to see what the row was about. On arriving at the Fedge farm, the officers found there was indeed work for Dr. Mac Manus as Fedge himself and Albert Oyele were in bad shape from injuries which they had inflicted on each other. As far as could be found out, Fedge and Oyele, with the latter's brother Ben, had secured a supply of liquor early in the day, and as the bottle ran low, arguments became more heated, finally resulting in a "free for-all" by the three men. All three were brought back to the city and, lodged in jail pending the seriousness of their injuries. Albery Oyele has a very bad gash over the eye made with a bottle and*1 taking several stitches to close. Fedge himself is wearing a face that ap pears to have been thru "no man's hand" minus a front tooth. County Attorney Owens,, says this case will have to be a warning to anybody who commits war right in/' this county, as the war is being fought' in France, and they should report there for duty. Mrs. John Hill, who was operated on at the Wittenberg hospital, some ten days ago, is wel Ion the way to recovery and returned to her home north of town Saturday.
