Railroad to Pay Half of Fire Loss. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 18 April 1908

Railroad to Pay Half of Fire Loss. Helena, Mont. —Residents of Big Timber, Mont., the town which was almost entirely destroyed by fire last month, have been notified by the Northern Pacific Railroad Company that they will be paid 50 cents on the dollar to cover their losses. This action is taken by the railroad company from the fact that the disastrous fire, which left hundreds of people homeless, was started by a spark from a Northern Pacific locomotive. The decision of the Northern Pacific to pay one-half of the fire loss is not the outgrowth of civil suits, but is a voluntary action on the part of the board of directors of the railroad.

SALOON QUESTION FOUGHT AT POLLS Liquor Hen Win in Northern California, but Lose in Communities of South. Sonoma County Votes to Remain in the Wet Column.-Not a Liquor Emporium Left Open in Riverside County.— Vacaville Goes Dry. Elections were held in a large number of California towns Monday, in which the main issue at stake was the liquor question. In some places the question to be voted on was absolute prohibition, while in others it was merely proposed to increase the license required of the liquor dealers so as to cut down the number of saloons. In nearly every place the contest was a bitter one, and up to the last minute both sides worked hard to win. In the northern sections the victory of the saloon men was almost complete. Vacaville, in Solano county, has tbe distinction of being the only point north of the Tehachapi reporting a successful campaign against the liquor element. Even in places where the women turned out and gave active aid against the saloons, as was the case i...

W. O’Rourke investigated the epidemic, and states that the poison can be counteracted in the alfalfa by mixing with other fodder. He places the deaths of the animals to the sudden change from other feed to the alfalfa, the great amount of alkaloids poisoning the system, affecting the nerve centers of the spine and causing complete paralysis.

BACHELORS MUST FLEE TO WOODS OR PAY YEARLY TAX. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 18 April 1908

BACHELORS MUST FLEE TO WOODS OR PAY YEARLY TAX. Tacoma, Wash. —Milton, a town on the Tacoma-Seattle Interurban Railroad, four miles from Tacoma, has gone on record with a tax of $5 per annum upon all bachelors living in that place. The town boasts of a large number of single men, and members of the City Council figure that if they get these bachelors to bring in wives it will nearly double the population. The tax will also stimulate the city finances, according to Mayor Claude Weeks, who signed the ordinance. When the Town Council passed the ordinance one of its members, who was a bachelor, made a vigorous protest, but he was quickly squelched. The Council did not even allow him a vote on the score of his personal interest in the issue at stake. Many of the single men of the place declare they will retaliate by changing their residence to other parts.
