resides, is strongly in favor of t'.-c
The citizens there joined in a mas
meeting Friday night and passed
resolutions condemning the action of
the state officers in very plain terms

placed in the hands of Governor Mc

cet Arthur Chuse. a mechanic who
was to go to work for him.
"Whiie we were driving back be

Gritz displayed a welt on hi- he?d
as big as a man's fist together with

officers no resistance whatsoever
and that after they had searched his
car they permitted him to go.
Stste Sheriff Gus Hyers gave the
following version of the affair, after,
he said, he had investigated it: "Af
ter careful investigation, I find my
men were not to blame. The only
trouble the officers had was in sub
duing the man after he had started
to make trouble."
Hyers claimed the officers stepped
Gritz because he was driving an
automobile minus a private license.
Gritz contended that inasmuch as he
is a garageman, he has the right to
drive cars on which are dealers'
I!yers said he had instructed Co.
Atty. Cole of this city to file two
charges against Gritz, one for oper
ating a car without a private lice-ns- ,
and another for resisting an officer.
Myers explained that only two of
the four men who. stopped Gritz
were deputies of his; the other two
men were just riding with them. He
did not give their names.

It is liberally oversize the 41-inch tire, for example,

The deep, clean-cut, cog-like pattern, of its tread affords

Last evening Judge William Weber
held an extra inning of his justice
court to consider the matter of the
complaint filed against Sigfried We
deen, 3S32 Castellar street, Gust Ol
son, 3716 Maple street and Alex
Sandquist, 25S4 Evans street, all of
Omaha. The three men were charged
with having made a disturbance
near the farm of George Everett and
James Ervin, near Union, last Sun
day and with having called Mr. Ev
erett a number of unpleasant names
in the course of the argument be
tween the parties.
It seems that the Omaha parties
were down in the southern portion
of Cass county gathering wild grapes
and in the course of their wanderings
came to the farm of Mr. Everett,
where an argument took place over
their presence and the discussion
grew rather warm and Mr. Everett
stated to the court that the remarks
made by the Omaha visitors were of
a nature that did not set well with
him. On the other hand the three
Omaha men denied having cursed
Mr. Everett or having made any un
complimentary remarks toward him.
After hearing the evidence in the
case Judge Weber decided that the
evidence did not warrant holding
the men on the charges preferred
and they were accordingly discharg
ed from the custody of the court and
returned to their homes in the metropolis.
