Otto Walter, of the town of Grant, was brought before the police justice the first of the week and assessed $10 and costs for hitching a team to a shade tree in front of the Reddan House, the tree having been damaged as a result.
An extensive fire raged on Wedge’s creek last Sunday and Monday, doing great damage to timber and destroying F. D. Lindsay’s camp and outfit, together with the ram-way and rolling stock used in putting in logs. The fire came upon them so rapidly that there was barely time to save the stock, everything also having been burned. The stables in one of Wm. H. Poley’s camps were also destroyed, and it required great exertion to save Hewettville from destruction, the same having been accomplished by back-firing, many of the citizens from this place have gone out to render assistance. The rain of last Wednesday extinguished the flames, but had the wind blown on Tuesday as it did on Monday, there is no telling what damage might have been done before that time.
