ANew Member^Interview With Lieuten^^ant Mars In SI. I.oula.
Missoula.Mont., May IS. The MIs-^si ula wheelmen, who compose the^Cycle club, are pleased oxer their^ft w ac^|Uisltion as a member of Theo-^doie Kragness. one of the two brothers^who made the famous trip to San Fran^^cisco from .Minneapolis. Theodore, after^the run across the continent was made,^rode his wheel around the state of Call-^lonila He lias derided to remain in^Missoula and he received to-day the^wheel that carried him on this |HM^ride. He has taken sin h good ^ are of It^that It does not look as if It had been^ridden more than 10^ miles. Instead of^ai-.nil MM. which was the distance^that was pumped out of it lasi season.^Mr. Kragness says that one of the^chief reasons for Ihe fact that the^wheel Is In such excellent condition is^that he reverses his chain c\eiy HI^miles and he recommends all wheelmen^to do the same. It makes the chain^and the sprocket hi th wear evenly and^prevents the ' play^ that makes many^wheels hard to tide. Mr. Kragness has^become a member of the Harden City^Cycle cluli and will take an active pari^in Ihe work of the club. He was the^trainer of his brother when the latter^won the most championships that he^1 holds. The club lp fortunate in Inning^1 sin It an experienced man as an ad^^visor.

Afriend of the Standard sends from^Philipsbutg the following Interview-^with Lieutenant Moss, taken from the^SI. Louis Republic, which will be of in^^terest to wheelmen here;
LieutenantJames A. .Moss of the '.'^.lb^Infantry. I'lilled States army, is at the^Planters hotel. He Is en route to Fort^Missoula. Mont., under Instructions^from lleneral Miles to organize a rorps^ol :'H tt-iMipers and ride by bicycle from^M i-snula to St. Louis
Thisexpedition Is the result of the be^^lief which prevails among military in-n^thai the bicycle can be made an .-III^^ lent addition to the equipment of ait^army In the Held; that it is practical for^long Journeys, and that its utility will^be fully demonstrated by the trip which^Lieutenant Moss with his I'll negro sol^^diers will begin on .lime I next.
LieutenantMoss is instructed to make^a full and exhaustive daily report of^the progress of the undertaking from^tin- time ii stalls at ihe Montana post^until It culminates in this city. The^rpeed. hardships, expenses, character of^. ntitut v traversed, altitudes attained^grades ot ascent and declivity, causes^of delay, sickness and relative condi^^tions of th. nun at start and Mulsh, will^be some of ihe points to he scicnttttcallv^noted and reported In every detail In^1 iln wiir department
Asimilar expedition was made hi^Lieutenant Moss and eight men last^summit'. The^ md,- from Missoula to^the Yellowstone patk and buck to the^fnii and the nit. was a successful ex^|M^rlment. although the corps was not^pelf, . tl\ equipped either III the Matter^nf hlejretai or other appurtenances. In

ilniiatancc ..t \m) miles in :tt duys In-^rlltdlM ^** 'lay^ spent testing at the^Naiional park.^^On that trip, said Lieutenant Moss,^each of tny men .arried a full MM)^I incut of arms and ammunition, a camp^^ing MUM fur himself and rations Th-^cook who a^ . ompunied us. with his^wheel and luagage. weighed a total nf^L'bO pounds, and the other in* u prohahly^| each w ^ ighed JOfl pounds w ith w heel and^baggage \\ hen I completed that trip^I went east to report, and was then de^^tailed to New York city to make pu pa^rations for this summer's trip. I (pent^1 considerable time among the bicycle^buil.bis of the Kast and have pur^^chased wh.-els especially adapted for^I this Journey Sime of the wheels we^will use have been built cxpreaply for^the trip, and I have every reason to h.--^' lleve that the enterprise will BMVI I^purees* In every way The chief dlffl-^. rulty heretofore has been in the tlrea,^hut the tires we will use on this trip^, have been especially made for the work,^and are practically non-puncturahlr^Then, the wheels are re-enforced with^steel tandem apekes. and with the ex-^rerlance sained last aummer, 1 think

ITS A SAD CASE.
Ia Plea Tbamai of Nlevenavlll* Prabably^Ihe Man HhoWaa In owned.
Mlaaoula.May IS. -There aeemi to lie^no doubt that ihe unfortunate man who^was drowned at MrNamara'a brldg.^on the Ilia; Hlackfis.t Monday was^James Thomas of Slevensvllle. Jrff^Demmons reported at tin- Standard of^Ine this morning that he had heard up^the BlaV kfiait thai the man s name was^Thoniaa and that he came from the Bit^lei Root, near Steveiiavllle. From^iborge Kaln and John Howling of^Stevenavllle, a Standard reporter^learned that James Thomas, a pros^pe.-tor and miner living lielow Stevens^Villa, had been absent front home for^some time and that the lasi letter that^his wife received from him was dated^at tivando, In the I'pper Xlackfooi^Since that lime Mrs. Thomas has hrar.l^nothing of her husband, and Mr. Kain^says that site was In his stoic Tuesday^morning grieving because she had sjol^heard from him as he had promised t ^^write and she feared that he had Men^drowned. It looks now as if her feais^were well grounded. The body uf tin^man has not yet been recovered and Ins
ktratlty Will not be established till II
Is,but the circumstances point to th-^conclusion that Ihe victim of tie^drowning is none other than Thomas^If it Is he tin- circumstances are esperi^ally unfortunate, as he leaves a large^family of small children. Mr Kaln says^thai Just before he left home on the lasi^Hip he was made a inenilier of th.^Stevenpyilie lodge A. O. U. W., so thai^Ins w idow w ill have something to assist^her.

THE UONNER ROAD.
WheelmenRaise n Purse to Have It put^In Good shape.
Missoula.May Is.^The wheelmen at^Homier have adopted an effl. lent meth^^od of getting the roads In their section^improved, although It ia somewhat ex^^pensive. They have raised a puree ami^will have men put to work on the coun^^ty road between the Runner station and^the east end of the Handmann toll road.^They will have this part of the road^put in good shape and It w ill cost the^county nothing. There Is considerable^complaint both from wheelmen anil^from those who drive between this city^and Homier about the large irrigating^ditch that crosses the road to Bonner^at the entrance to the canyon. Two^years ago the road supervisor was In^^structed to bridge this stream, and he^did so. The only trouble with his work^was that he put the bridge ;|II feet lie-^low ihe road and did not make any^grade up to It. so that It now stands^useless and all by itself. The present^supervisor will probably attend to this i^matter soon, as the attention of the^commissioners has been called to It and^they are willing to have the necessary^work done to make the bridge passable.^If this is done, there will he an excel^^lent road to Runner as soon as the^wheelmen of that place Ret their end uf^the road done.

TtIs hard to make some people believe this, because quackery is so preva^^lent during ihe past few years thut every one is susplrious of an advertised^remedy, but these facts are gradually becoming known, for Dr. Sanden's Elec-^iric Belt makes new friends every day. You see only one thing is claimed for^it^that Is gives strength^and in that you know what great possibilities attend^Its use.

IligTlmlier. May is The spring^tasTM of the district cowrt for this^county convened here Monday Noth^^ing was done further than t,. s. ^ , ..sea^ami draw a Jury, when an adjournment^was taken until the 24th The term^will probably not last more than four^or live days, there being only one erim-^inal .as,-, that of the state against Jo^^seph Streets, a gambler \. ha , ha- jod^with mayhem. Sheetp and a local^saloon keeper had a tow last winter,^and In the scrap that followed the^salooiikee|^ei s rlnge'rs Mere very badly^bitten The civil cases are ail short^and will not last long When it is re-^nienilx-red that slmi' lasi spring there^has not l^een a term of tka daft lid^court In this county thai lasted mote^than one day the record is rather re^^markable.
Thecounty commissioners are hav^^ing a hard lime to get the proposed new-^court house under wav but it is be^^lieved that after a few more efforts^they may succeeed In getting It start^^ed. They Brat called for plans and^speclflcatlone. and these U^ing submit^^ted and selected the site was next
chosenand bids for the erection of the^building asked for. When the bids^MT* submitted only one of ihem was^within the tilt.nun limit, and it was ac^^cepted and the bidders awarded the^contract. After sleeping on the propo^^sition, however, the contractors next^day decided that they had bitten off^more than they could chev ami de^^clined to proceed with the work. This^was rather a disappointment for the^POtntll I aa I IM^* ra. but with laudable en^^ergy they Immediately called for new^bids, taking care this that* to slipnlat.-^thut a certified check for t.'iOO should ac^^company each bid as a guarantee of^good faith. The board met to-day to^consider th^ new hid. for there was^only one. and it did not suit it was re^^jected. Just what the commissioners^will do now is largely a matter of con-^Jecture. but it is understood Ihat the^plans will be modified so that the^building may la^ erecti d at a cost^which will obviate the necessity of^submitting the question to the taxpay^^ers as It is not thought probable that^a majority of them would approve the^move.
