After the issuance of Gov. Hubbard's proclamation declaring the county seat of Traverse county changed from Brown's Valley to Wheaton, 100 men from Wheaton appeared at Brown's Valley at daylight to take possession and transfer the county records, etc. This posse broke into the court house and began to load up the property, when Brown's Valley men appeared and drove off the Wheaton party, but not until a rough fight had ensued with clubs, shovels, etc. No one was killed, but a good many got hurt.
