From the Glenwood Herald November 4, 1915
Mitmeon case set for Monday. Preliminary hearing on murder charge postponed for a week.
The preliminary hearing in the Mitmeon murder case, the last day for paying real estate taxes and Thacker Brother’s big sale last Saturday combined to attract one of the largest crowds of people brought together in our city for several years.
The hearing in the murder case was postponed till Monday, November 8, in so far as charges against John Jacobson and George Nelson were concerned.
The case against Martin Mortenson was dismissed upon motion by the county attorney.
A large number of people especially from Nora and Ben Wade had come to attend the hearing and were naturally disappointed to learn that it would not take place on schedule time. A large number of these however will return Monday to be present when the preliminary hearing is held.

Starbuck Times November 4, 1915.
Martin Scheflo caused the arrest of Jacob Hagen yesterday for criminal slander. Mr. Scheflo alleges that Hagen charged him with stealing a boat belonging to P.C. Heegard of which he had the use and possession. The trial was set for next Monday. It will take place in the council rooms at the power house.
Mr. Seeger has narrow escape. Team runs away and plunges over embankment at the Soo Underground Crossing.
Charles Seeger was injured and narrowly escaped death in an accident at the Soo Monday. He was loading coal at the yards and had his wagon about filled when the team became frightened at a passing train and started to run. He attempted to stop them, and in doing so, was run over and three ribs were broken. The team dashed on over the embankment and horses, wagon and coal fell in a heap in the viaduct 20 feet below. One of the horses was killed. If the accident had happened three minutes later someone would surely have been killed for in less time than that an automobile rounded the curve into the viaduct. The recent grading done at the underground crossing has left three, twenty foot embankments just east of the track which are exceedingly dangerous and are still unprotected. The old road leads to the very brink of the cut on the north. Just a few nights ago an automobile party unfamiliar with the way took that road by mistake. The brakes applied at the instant saved them from the same tumble which the team took Monday.
