Albert Anderson, Secretary Meeting Held February 15, 1908 Norway, Wisconsin, February 15, 1908 We, the undersigned committee appointed by the President of the Wind Lake Telephone Company to examine as to whether accounts of receipts and expenditures of said company had been kept by Rev. 0. E. Schmidt, have examined a book of such accounts kept by the said Rev. 0. E. Schmidt and find therein recorded an account of all money received and disbursed by said company for the first two years of its existence or until said company was incorporated and officers properly elected. We further find that the charge against the said Rev. 0. E. Schmidt viz, that he distorted such accounts or withheld same from said company by tearing out or otherwise destroying the front pages of book in which such accounts were kept is false and untrue. We have found as an absolute certainty that such pages had no connection with the said Wind Lake Telephone Company but were used by Ed Malone in his store. He having used said book in his store before same was used by said company. The reason for such company using such book was that the company went to Ed Malone to buy a record book and Ed Malone not having any new said that he had one in which he had used only a few pages and if they wished it they might have same for gratis. We also find that the charges of said Rev. 0. E. Schmidt having not paid any telephone rent or switching toll is untrue as shown by treasurer's record of said company for the years 1904, 1905, and 1906. Committee: James L. English, H. J.
