(From Monday's Dally)
"We have conducted many .through
out the United States and it was one
of the most successful that we have
been connected with," declared R. H.
Home, manager, on Saturday.
It was, so far as is known, the most
successful ever carried out in North
Dakota. Nearly a hundred workers
took part in it and millions of votes
And did they enjoy the work? To
a crowd of them the Times-Record
put the question: "How did you
"Great!'' they answered in chorus.
"Fine sport!" several added.
"One of the greatest of pastimes,"
"Say, when are you going to hold
the next one?'' half a dozen inquired.
"Because we want to get in it."
That was a poser.
After mature thought, however,
will be some time yet before another
one will be held. So many new sub
scriptions were received during this

Dog Is Involved In
DECISION IN ONE CASE DOES NOT
SETTLE ALL MATTERS CON
'While the question of the larceny of
a dog was settled by Justice Zahel yes
terday afternoon, the ownership of the
animal is still in doubt and further
litigation may be necessary to settle
Last February Charles Brown went
to Canada, leaving behind a bulldog
and a Llewellyn setter. The setter
was left with Mrs. 'Bertha Davis,
Brown teiling her she could have the
dog or glVe it away. .Mrs. 'Davis gave
the dog to Elgie Carman, who. took
good care of the animal all summer
and paid the license.
Along in August Waldermar Johnson
who had worked for Brown here and
in Canada, returned to Valley 7ity.
He knew the dog and the dog knew
him. 'On August 24, Johnson is alleged
to have taken absolute possession of
the dog and shipped it out of town,
ostensibly in view of the hunting sea
son. Carmen demanded the dog. He
was refused'and then he asked for a
settlement for feeding the, dog and
paying the license. Johnson told Car
man he had "smoke in his eyes,"
To bring the matter at issue before
the courts Carman yesterday swore to
complaint, charging Johnson w|th
larceny. When the case was called be
fore Justice Moe. John&on asked for
a change of venue to Justice Zabel
After hearing the testimony Justice
Zabel decided that Johnson was not
guilty as charged.
This does not settle the question of
ownership of the dog.

But Shooting Is Poor

many were disappointed. The shoot

than Saturday, but the nimrods are

State Bar Against
Ousting County Court
DRAGS RECALL OF JUDGES
FOR RECONSIDERATION BUT
TAKES NO ACTION.
The State Bar Association at
Jamestown yesterday turned down
the recommendation of the resolution
committee to do away with the coun
ty courts by transferring matters in
their jurisdiction to the district
courts and imposing much of their
duties upon the clerks of courts.
On the recall of judges and judge's
decisions, the status of the bar asso
ciation can only fee explained by a
learned lawyer and then it will re
quire at least one hour of valuable
time. So far as the record is con
cerned, it shows that the former ac
tion of the association, which is in
terwoven with provisions of a pro
posed amendment to the state consti
tution, the detail of which
lawyer only can explain, was brought
up for consideration.
The recommendation to form three
or four judicial districts of the state,
presided over by three or four judges
whose duty it will be to sit in the
different courts in rotation, abolishing
the present system, was adopted.
Recommendations for a change in
procedure that will facilitate appeals
to the supreme court were adopted.
Following are the new officers:
President, A. G. 'Divet, Wiahpeton
vice president, John (Knauf, James
town secretary, W. H. Stutsman,

No Disgrace To Run
When You're Scared
BARBER BELIEVES OLD ADAGE
AND BREAKS ALL KNOWN
(From Fridays Daily.)
With a terrific lunge through the
doors of the electric light plant last
night Jack Ferran, a barber at the
Kindred hotel, ended an exciting foot
race he had down the railroad track
from Riverside hospital with hold-up
men, or a noise he heard, or a switch
target, or "something," he did not
know what. Incidentally he outdis
tanced an automobile driven by 'Chas.
Otto, which left the hospital before
Ferran started, and came honking
along Main street, a sorry second,
long after Ferran had recovered his
Ferran saw two of the nurses safely
to the hospital and started to return
to the city by way of the cut-off path
and railroad. Just after he crossed
the railroad bridge the crickets began
chirping unusually loud. Suddenly
Ferran "heard something," and the
race was on. Then he caught sight
of the glowing red light in the switch
target, that flared like the firey eyes
of a goblin, and he jumped from the
intermediate to' high gear. Then the
eyes of the goblin turned green as he
passed the target and (Barney Oldfield
would have been a cringing coward
compared to Ferran and the reckless
speed he was making. Even the
shadows started in pursuit, but what
show did a shadow have in that class
The engineer of the lighting plant
was calmly viewing the whirring ma
chinery when hie was startled by a
crash through the door and Ferran
landed in the middle o3 the room with
reversed engines and brakes set.
Later, Otto was astonished to drive
up in his automobile and find Ferran
in the city ahead of him. 'He had
seen the barber and the nurses near
ing the hospital when he left.
"It doesn't make any difference how
I got here,'' gasped Ferran. "That
automobile nor anything else could
have caught me. I don't know what
it was, for I was going some and did
not stop to investigate."
Special to The Times-Record.
Dr. C. C, Creegan is not eligible for
the governorship. He has only been
in the state about four years, and the
