it was vejy obnoxious to the

thefact that quite a number -of
our substantial citizens are said
to be members proves conclusive
ly that" there were those who
opined the club was all right..
Iet opinion be as it may, the
fact remains that on a complaint
made out by Deputy District
Prosecuting. Attorney Bryson,
Wednesday, Sheriff Burnett and
his deputy, J. D. Wells, accom
panied by one or two other gen
tlemen raided the place. - This
was shortly after noon. -The
sheriff, according to the author
ity vsted by the complaint he
carried was entitled to take into
custody Mike- Kline, Merwin
McMaines, Tack Miline and.John
Doe. ' v ' ' '
Mr. Kline being absent from
town at the time, Messrs. Mc
Maines and Miline, were appre
hendedJohn Doe was not dis
turbed, although present in some
numbers. The tro men secured
were haled before Justice r Hol-
gate and vigorously , examined.
On representations they made the
matter was postponed, until even

had promised oV ptioue to be
here. . .. ' ' ' - ,-- .-
The evening session was held
in Attorney Bry son's y office be
fore Judge Hoi gate. The de

Maines and Miline, plead I their
own case. ack JMUtne showed
that he was connected with the
club and its workings solely as
steward and, as we understand,
his case was dismissed. ' . 1
His Honor, realising that in
all probability a test case would
be made and the matter carnea
to a higher court, imposed a fine
of $300 each on Mike Kline and
Merwin McMaines for their
operations in defiance of the local
option law. It. is? commonly as-
serted that these men will. take
an appeal. They have thirty
days to carry the matter to
higher court and . a -reasonable
time to secure counsel -and file
their bonds, etc The matter
will be watched with.considerable
interest by the people of this city

Mrs. Harding did not know if
there was any insurance on the

there was on the latter possibly

struction of her home very much
ooked at the matter philosoph-

Next Monday, September 4th,

being a legal holiday, all public
offices will be closed in accord
ance with custom and law. How
ever, in order that the old sol
diers may not be disappointed in
the matter, and to accommodate
those who may be unmindful of
the fact that it is a legal holiday
and appear at the office anyway;
the clerk has decided to keep
open house for a couple of hours
on this occasion. These hours
are from 8 to 10 o'clock in the
morning and old soldiers shoulo
bear this in mind.

dwelling of Gustave Harding
was being destroyed by flames.
Many rcen about the city made
haste to go to the scene of the
conflagration, in order that they
might render any assistance
- It seems, however, that noth
ing possible could have saved
the house, which was completely
licked up by the flames. From
what it learned, Mrs. Harding
thought the morning a trifle
chill and started a fire in the
fireplace. Just how. the fire
originated, even after this, is not
known, but the supposition is
that a spark lodged on the roof
and the brisk wind -blowing from
the north fanned'it into flames'.
When discovered the fire, was too
far advanced .to put 6ut and, the
only thing to attempt was the
saving of what could be carried
from the building in the way of
furniture and other valuables.
Mr. Harding' was in Portland,
but a couple of hired men were
on the place and they rendered
all possible assistance. Neigh
boring men gathered from all
quarters and did what they could
