From the Sept. 11, 1924 Campbell County Record:
Honorable Francis E. Warren, Republican candidate for reelection to the United States Senate was a guest of Campbell County folks the first of the week. The senator arrived in Gillette Sunday on No. 41 from Sheridan, where he had been in attendance at the Sheridan County Fair, with the intention of leaving again early Monday morning, but a slight change in his itinerary made it possible for him to remain over until Tuesday forenoon. While in this section of the state he wanted to take in the Crook County Fair. Sunday evening a banquet was served at the Montgomery Cafe, and about 23 were present. After a short talk by the senator and Mr. Chassell, the body adjourned to the Masonic hall, where the senator had the opportunity to meet all present.
