At the conclusion of the hearing Justice Anderson ruled that the evidence was not sufficient to hold Hill and dismissed the com-
A big display of fireworks will be the chief attraction at the big W. O. W. picnic at the city laka next Tuesday night. This will be the last part of the program, we understand, and one that no one will want to miss.

It is understood that the town will be closed for the first day of the picnic, which is labor day, and which comes on the first day of the month as well the first working day of the week.
