A Look Back in Time: March 4, 1917

Now here's Sheridan Media's look back in time, to 100 years ago, by reporter Pat Blair as published in the Sheridan Enterprise newspaper on March 4, 1917.

Doc Spear of Sheridan, together with W.M. Spear and Charles Spear of Billings, has purchased the ML ranch, located near Kane, 14 miles from Lovell in the Big Horn Basin. A company is being incorporated under the name Spear Brothers to operate the ranch. The consideration was $110,000.

The jury returned a verdict yesterday in district court for the defendant in the $50,000 damage suit instituted by Ralph Hughes against the Acme Coal company.

Riley Motor Co. has been receiving a number of shipments of new cars recently, having unloaded two carloads of Overlands and one load of Cadillacs within the last 10 days.
