Youth Battles Theater Usher And Stops Show
Admonished for Loud Talking Starts Swinging – Will Have More Elbow Room in Jail next 10 Days.
Frank Barwinczak, 19, of 91 Van Anden Street, today was sentenced to serve 10 days in Cayuga County Jail following his arraignment in Police Court on a charge of disorderly conduct. Barwinczak was arrested Sunday afternoon following an altercation between himself and an usher at the Capital Theater. The scrap caused so much commotion that a near riot occurred, but no one was injured, and a rush for the exits was halted by ushers. Before Recorder W. Frederick R. Davis this morning the young man was admonished for his actions. The complainant was Hubert P. Wallace, manager of the theater. According to Manager Wallace, Barwinczak was first asked to cease his loud talk. His answer to this was fight. He began throwing rights and lefts with a will. He fought wildly as he was being ejected from the theater. The audience soon was in an uproar and several started a rush for the doors. The show was interrupted but after Barwinczak had been ejected the movie was resumed and everything was serene. Patrolman Stephen Doyle made the arrest.

BIOGRAPHY: Raymond History Book 1902 - 1967
Roundup" pages 33 - 36
Oscar Raymond Knight was born April 8, 1872 at Payson, Utah. He grew up on the ranch home west of Payson. Here he learned the skills of farming and caring for livestock which became a part of him. His education in Payson and the Brigham Young Academy gave him the foundation to continue school but he longed for the outdoor life of the ranch and to be with his fine horses and cattle. He always owned the best stock money could buy. He filled a mission for his church in England and toured western Europe before he returned to work with his father. In 1901 he was sent to Southern Alberta by his father to look over the new country. So much did it appeal to him with its spacious plains and abundant grass that he decided to make it his home. Here his father bought large areas and Raymond followed suit. The town of Raymond was named after him and his father brought in a sugar factory to help open up this virgin land for settlers. Raymond Knight was a big man, both in stature, ideas, and ambition, and his generous heart was in keeping with his size. He bought large ranches and stocked them with the best cattle and horses on the range. It took a lot of men to run these places but these he found among the many settlers whom he had encouraged to come in. He made a trip to England and brought back over three hundred of the finest work horses that he could find. These became the nucleus of the heavy work breeds so necessary to pull the plows and other machinery of the farmers in those days. As his herd grew he sold or loaned them out to farmers who broke them to work and after the harvest was over returned them to the Knight ranch or bought them outright. He also bought milk cows and loaned those to needy people with the instruction to keep them as long as they needed them but to take good care of them. He donated to the town the Victoria Park and the land for the Agriculture School and farm and the cemetery. Besides his own property which was all over Southern Alberta and as far north as Brooks, he managed the Knight Sugar Company holdings. When one considers a ranch of nearly 400,000 acres of land, fenced and divided into many pastures, stocked with 15,000 head of cattle and 40,000 sheep, one can realize the enormous responsibility of the job. Yet he had time for sports, and community activities to enrich the
lives of everyone. He organized and fathered the first stampede in Canada at Raymond and was an active participant in it. He introduced calf roping along with chariot races, and the Roman race with two horses but one driver standing with one foot on each horse. What thrillers these were! His fame as a great stampeder soon spread across the continent. He was asked to stage a stampede for the Prince of Wales in Saskatoon, to be judge at the stampede in Madison Square Garden, New York, and to put on stampedes in many places. He won many honors and trophies at these shows for he was an outstanding cowboy himself. At Calgary in 1924 he was awarded the Prince of Wales Trophy which consisted of a silver calf mounted on a polished block with a silver rope dragging from its neck. This is one of his most coveted prizes. In 1917 his father's interests in Utah became to extensive that he asked Ray to sell out and return to help him. This Mr. Knight was prepared to do. When the people of Southern Alberta heard of this they arranged a farewell banquet in his honor at which the following resolutions were adopted. When Raymond Knight arrived in Utah he went over the affairs of the Knight Investment Company with his father, and after considerable deliberation he reached the conclusion that he would not fit into the picture as outlined and concluded to return to Canada where be began accumulating large tracts of land. Through the subsequent years financial successes and failures came but his indomitable spirit never quit striving. In early 1942 he had a stroke from which he never recovered and although he received the best medical care science could give, he suffered until Feb. 7, 1947 when he died at the age of seventy-four. Mr. Knight's wife, Isabelle Smith, was a school teacher before she married. They had five children prior to coming to Alberta. She lived in Raymond a number of years but her health was impaired and she returned to Provo where she died. Two of her children preceded her in death. Her eldest daughter, Uarda was a student of the University of Utah and a graduate nurse. Raymond, her oldest son was a mechanic and interested in mining. He enlisted in the World War of 1914. Kenneth liked farming and worked with his father. He attended Brigham Young College and the Utah Agricultural College. He filled two missions for his Church and is the only one of the family still living in Raymond. Mr. Knight's second wife was Charlotte Maud Heninger, also a teacher who was the mother of three sons and two daughters. Her eldest son Owen died in his youth. Wayne H. filled a mission for the Church in France and Switzerland. He is a lawyer and lives in California. Jess H. filled a mission in Germany and is also a lawyer in training.

Oscar Raymond Knight was a robust gentleman, "born of the frontier's need, disdainful of the spoken word, exultant in the deed," No man did more for his town and district that this great man. Truly, his father was the founder of the town but Raymond Knight was the builder.

Knight Visits Friends Here
Prominent Alberta Stock Grower and Business Man En Route Home From Salt Lake
Ray Knight, prominent Albert stock grower and business man, will leave for his home near Raymond this morning after spending Wednesday in Great Falls visiting with friends. Mr. Knight is returning from Salt Lake City where he spent the holidays with his family. Mr. Knight for a number of years was associated in the livestock business in Canada with J. D. Watson, now of Great Falls. He became well known to a large number of Montana residents in 1923 when he staged a rodeo at Shelby preliminary to the Dempsey-Gibbons championship fight. Mr. Knight has been one of the leaders in the sugar beet industry in Alberta for more than 20 years. He was one of the organizers of the Knight Sugar company which operated a sugar factory at Raymond. Failure to obtain sufficient acreage resulted in the abandonment of the this plant but two years ago the Utah-Idaho Sugar company, of which Mr. Knight is a director, erected a new factory and a good run of beets was made last fall. The supply of beet pulp and molasses created by operation of the plant has resulted in encouragement of livestock feeding at Raymond, Mr. Knight said. All of the pulp and molasses is fed at the factory. The original Knight Sugar company controlled 140,000 acres of land in Alberta and following the dismantling of its sugar plant has engaged in the livestock business.

Ray Knight, Famed Rancher Industrialist, Dies in Canaday
Lethbridge, Feb. 11 (Special) – Ray Knight, 75, pioneer rancher, industrialist and “father of the stampede” in western Canada, died at Magrath, Alta., after an illness of three years following a stroke. The town of Raymond, home of the first beet sugar factory in western Canada built by the Knights at the turn of the century, was named for Ray Knight. He was born in Utah, son of the late Jesse Knight, Utah mining and industrial magnate, and rode the Utah range in the early days. He came to Canada with his brother, Will, now of Provo, Utah, and started the famous – K2 ranch near Spring Coulee. The stocked it with 40,000 head of sheep and 15,000 head of cattle, the spread consisting of 400,000 acres. They later founded the Kirkaldy ranch on Milk river, now owned by W. H. McIntyre, another Utah man. The Knights built the Raymond sugar factory later. Ray Knight was a famous stampede roper himself, twice winning the Canadian calf roping championship at the Calgary stampede. He supplied much of the stock for the Calgary show for many years. Knight was a big man physically, a typical westerner of the old school. He staged a stampede in Saskatoon for the duke of Windsor, former king of England, at that time prince of Wales. Knight was a judge at Madison Square garden, New York city, some years ago but figured the western shows were really more typical of the cowboy sports. Personal friend of Charley Russell, Montana’s cowboy artist, Ray Knight’s home at Raymond contains one of the finest Russell originals.
