We have it on authority that is reliable,
and from the highest source, that the
Northern Pacific railroad will build to
Fort Benton just as soon as the arrange
manets can be made and the work done.
,The project in view, and which the River
Press has often pointed out as the sensible
Sone, is to build from Billings this way
-first, making the head of navigaion on
the Missouri the objective point. Then,
if necessary, the loop can becompleted by
the extension of the line to Helena. nBut

An amusing episode occurred in one of
the saloons on 1st Ave. S. one evening this
week. The party who figured conspicu- I
ously in the affair was lying down on a 1
faro table, apparently trying to sleep,when j
another fellow, an entire stranger, made
use of the cabalistic symbol 3-7-77, which
in early days was the "pusher" used by t
the vigilantes. No sooner had the magic 7
figures been spoken than the inanimate
form on-thc farotable became very active,
and without asking the stranger's consent,
pasted him one full in the face. The
stranger was game, and it was give and
take until they were separated. Then the
faro sleeper explained that "it always
made him hot to hear 3-7.77, as the vigi
lantes came very near causing him to play
a conspicuous part in a necktie matinee."
His explanation was satisfactory.

THE SPORTING WORLD.
important Changes in Base Ball Rules
-Doings of the Sports.
Befbre the season is far advanced, Great
Falls may have i flourishing base ball
club. The number of athletes here is al
ready large and it will be reinforced when
the railroad engineers and contractors
come along. Some important changes
have been made since last year %hich
Great Falls sportsmen should know in ad
vance. These changes have been accep:
ed by most clubs and are now in general
use. The most radical changes are .un
doubtedly id the rules governing pitching.
The code makes some radical changes in
the rules governing the delivery of the
ball to the bat. In the first place the
pitcher is now only allowed so send in five
unfair balls before he becomes liable to
the penalty of giving the batsman his base
on balls, and the penalty is increased b.
adding the charge of a base-hit
the pitcher every time a base is given on
balls. Then, too, every time the pitcher
hits the batsman with a pitched ball, a
base is given the batsman as a penalty for
the error. The sam i penalty, too, ia. in
curred every time the pitcher commi's a.
balk, and the liability to balk is greatly
increased under the new rules. It will be
seen, therefore, that the pitcher has now
to guard against three costly errors in his
delivery, viz., those of sending the bats
man to his base on balls; for hitting him
with a pitched ball and making a balk.
This largely increased responsibility at
tached tothe position, however, is offset
by an important ads antage which the new,
code grants to the pitcher, and that lies in
the throwing out of the code the clause i
the pitching rules which required the
pitcher to send in balls "high" or "low"as
the batsman choose to call for, such "high"
balls being designated as balls passing the'
batsman between his waist and shoulder,
and such "low" ball as passed between h]ii
knee and waist. This designated class of
balls the pitcher had to deliver, but they
were the most difficult for the umpire to
judge correctly. Under a nev code, t her -
for -, a greater latitude is given the pitcher,
in this respect, as he is now only c lie4<.,
upon to send in balls not higher than the-y
batsman's shoulder nor lower than his
knee, and every ball is now a fair ball!
rovided, of course, that it at the same
time passes over the home base. This is
one of the most important and radical.
changes made in therules for some tim
past, and, though it may bother a fewbats.
men at first, it will ultimately be of advan
ta"e to them. One benefit it yields istha
of-relieving the umpire of a very difficult
part of his duties, while at the same tame
it affords the pitcher greater facilities fo
strategetic skill in his position.
In the method of delivering the ball
the bat will be found another importen
amendment to the rules, and that is th
limiting the pitcher not only to a sing
forward stepinthe immediate actof delv
ing the ball to the bat, but to a clearly d
fined limit .n regard to his method
throwing to base to cat:h base runn
napping ff their bases. Under last year'
rules th itcher could take .ny steps h
choose to make within the seven feet by
four space of his position. Moreover, h
could indulge in several effectual.feints ti
threw to a base withou infringing th
balk line. By a study of these rules
person will readily see that the pitcher
prohibited from gathering force for
delivery of the ball from anywhere b
There hrve also been important agea
in thehttingrules. As previouslys
the batsman has no choice of a ball, and
obliged to bat a either a high or low.one
It was thought at first that this would ma
terially affect the hitting powers of
of the heaviest batters, but so far as th
ha ;e played this year they appea;opo

The bat is held rather high in order
the striker may be in readiness for th
first ball pitched , ver tole plate at th
height prescribed for a fair ball thus en
abling dhim to hit quickly and accuratel
at either a hig or low ball. The exp
ence of prgfessxonal players so far this
son has shown this to be the. best
as it has been found easier to strike do .a
at a low ball than to raise the bat forhi
