On Wednesday night of this week he resisted the city marshal and was just- ly cuffed to a peak. THIRD ANNUAL COMMENCE- MENT- Thursday evening, March 19, 1900 will long be remembered not only by the graduates and others who participated in the third an- nual commencement exer- cises of the Sundance school, but also by the vast throng of proud parents and others who gathered at the M.E. church to witness the event. The ad- dress by M. Nichols was a very able and appropriate one. Mr. Nichols recalled that last year in this city only one young man graduated and this year not one. Where are the boys of today spending their time? It behooves them to avail their opportunities for educational advancement lest a few years hence they will be numbered with those who will unjustly complain that women are tak- ing their employment from them. DISTRICT COURT- In the matter of the suit by J.W. Rog- ers against school district No. 1, judgement for the former was rendered for the sum of something more than $3700, and a special levy of five mills in said district was ordered to be made each year until the obligation shall have been dis- charged. The murderer of Blanche La- mont and Minnie Williams made a confession of the crime on his death bed a few days ago. He was the minister of the church in which the young ladies were killed, and was one of the chief witnesses against Theodore Durrant, who was convicted and hanged for the crime. This case seems to demonstrate the lameness of the law prescribing the death penalty for a person convicted of murder on circumstantial evidence, which was the na- ture of the strongest testimo- ny against Durrant. According to the minister's anti mortem statement justice in the courts has been defeated and the stain of murder is literally on the hands of all who had to do with Durrant's persecution and execution. INASMUCH as the probabil- ity that on account of lack of funds there will be no school in Sundance and other plac- es in this district next year is staring the school child in the face, it behooves all lovers of education to return a just as- sessment this spring. Crook county is fortunate in having in Mr. Kamman an assessor who keenly appreciates the situation and will, we believe, use earnest, fair and honor- able means to secure the larg- est possible valuation for the district. It is a condition and not a theory that confronts us and the educational welfare of our children is directly in- volved. Frank Jolley was in town this week wearing a smile bigger'n a broadax. The cause was his elation over the mag- nificent stature of the jolly infant son over at Hulett. Ac- curate measurements of who, together with disposition, col- or and weight, were recited to the writer with the precision of a cavalry horse buyer. Dr. Knode dressed a frac- tured limb for Jim Roberts of Hulett one day last week. The misfortune is the result of a horse's fall on the rider. 75 Years Ago April 18, 1940 First prize in the "Flag~ con- test, sponsored by the Ameri- can Legion Auxiliary, goes to Alice Hockett, a Senior at Sundance high school accord- ing to an announcement made yesterday by the three judges.
