AND THIS IS BECAUSE THE BEST MEN ARE UP Something of the Men Who Are Up for Legislative and Other Offices, With Logical Arguments to Show Why They Should be Selected by an Over whelming Vote to Look After the Destinies of the County. [IsECIAL TO INTER MOUNTAIN.] Dillon, Oct. 25.-Present indications point to a sweeping victory for the repub lican party at the polls next November, and the grand old county of Beaverhead, which has temporarily wandered from the repub lican fold, will return to its own again when election day comes next month, and return every candidate on the ticket an easy winner. At present the republican candidates are making a tour of the entire county, having spent the week in the Big Hole basin. All along the route their reception was entllu. siastic, and there is scarcely a doubt that the excellent personnel of the ticket has won many votes for the republicans during the trip. At the head of the ticket two representa tive men are candidates for the legislature. They are former Gov. B. F. White, the first resident of Montana to be appointed a governor of the territory, and GeorgV W\oodworth, the leading stockman of the Big Hole basin, whose every interest is in Beaverhead county. White is Well Known. Mr. White is recognized as the leading business man of the county. Ever since the town of Dillon was founded he has been at the head of the First National bank, and he has proved himself time and again to be allied with all of the interests that would promote the development of Beaverhead. It is to him that the development of the stcck-feeding industry of this county, one of the leading industries of the county, owes its birth. It is Mr. White who ad vanced money to the ranchers of the Big Hole basin to engage in an occupation which at its best looked precarious. But his sound business insight showed rev ASROCIATFD PiFREs. London, Oct. 25.-London was thrown into a turmoil of excitement today when a fire was reported in the Guild hall, where their majesties, King Edward and Queen Alexandra, were thought to be. It was rumored at first that both had been in serious danger, if not injured, in the panic. It developed later that their majesties had left the building shortly before the conflagration broke out. The Guild hall caught fire shortly after noon. The fire was in the dome of the hall some distance from the part of the building where the luncheon was held. The firemen easily subdued the flames. The fire is said to have been caused by a fused wire. I.ondon, Oct. 25.- King 'ldwuard and Queen Alexandra started on tlhe royal progress toward the city shortly atter noon today inl somewhat dull weather. The rain, however, kept off and the temilpra ture was sllfficiently iild to mal;ke the day enjoyable. Outside Buckingham palace a great crowd had been waiting for hours walchl Ing the arrivals and departures and the forming of the procession. The Irilliancy of the latter was greatly detracted froui by the fact that all the t'roops were cloaked. The only touch of colotr 0as from the lace pennantts of the lancers aIn the brass helmets of the heavy cavalry. The khakilpainted guns of the artillery ani a naval gun of the same hue addled to the general note of somtlrenle's. The procession formed up outsile the gate and hd l already moved off when the first carriages containling tlhe royal plerson ages and mrentlers of the housethohl emerged therefrom. There was a somewhat; tredious interval before the appearance of their majesties, who drew forth the first real cheers of the day as they passed through the rows of blue jackets fronm the first class cruiser (Continued on Page Three.) FAMOUS CORNISH WRESTLER CRAZY TIM HARRINGTON FOUND WANDER ING ABOUT THE STREETS IN DEMENTED CONDITION. SENT TO COUNTY JAIL ON INSANITY CHARGE Was to Have Wrestled Tony Harris Here for $1,000 a Side-Claims He Was Drunk and Had Been Given "Knockout Drops," but His Queer Talk Shows That He Is "Off" Tim llarrington,, the famous Cornish wrestler who was brought here from Mich igan to be matched against Tony Harris, is confined in the "boxcar" at the county jail under a charge of insanity. ltarrington was found last night by one of his friends, Chit Keough, wandering about the streets demented and raving. Keough succeeded in getting Ofllicer Murphy and with the assistance of two or three others, managed to get the unfor tunate athlete to the county jail, after a desperate struggle. lHarrington is one of the champions in Cornish wrestling of the country and is a powerful, well-trained man. It required the united efforts of four or five men to place hin in the cage at the jail. The wrestler has two brothers here, Jack and Jim Harrington, and has a host of friends and admirers who were not made aware of his condition until late this afternoon. Alderman Larry Duggan was an old playmate and school-fellow of lHarrington's, and lie was the first to visit him this afternoon. Will Be Taken Care Of. Immediately steps were taken to care for IIarrington and it is probable that quiet and medical treatment will restore him. HIarrington came from Calumet, Mich., two weeks ago and was to have been matched against Tony Harris for $1,ooo a side at Cornish style. The match attracted attention from all over the country and was to have been pulled off within the next six or eight weeks. Already there has been talk of the big sums to be placed on the men and the lovers of wrestling looked forward to the best match held in years. The unfortunate lapse of IHarrington has elicited sympathy from all interested in the proposed match. Some time ago larrington wrestled in Michigan and had his collar bone broken. Whether at that time he was injured about the head is not known at present. Has Always Been Temperate. Me has s!ways been strictly temperate l ]n i iens tlh*l snftara, . I. nslsts4 FRANK NORRIS, THE NOVELIST, IS DEAD HAD A BRILLIANT FUTURE BEFORE HIM-SOMETHING OF WHAT HE HAS WRITTEN. rev ASnsOCIArriD raI vS,] San Fratncisco, Oct. z5.-Frank Norris, the brilliant young California novelist, who was hastily operated upon for ap pendicits several days ago, died this morn ing. Norris received his literary apprent iceship in this city, where he acquired the technique of his art as a contributor of short stories and sketches to the weekly papers. Ilis first novel, "Moran of the I.ady Letty," was widely read and favorably criticised. "McTeague," "Blix," "A Man's Woman," and other novels followed. The work, however, that doubtless brought him the greatest fame and placed hint in the front rank of latter day novelists was "The Octopus," a story of the struggle between the wheat growers of California and the railroad. "The Pit," a story of the Chicago grain market, is now runnig as a serial In an eastern magazine, and a third novel on a somewhat similar topic was in course of preparation when Norris was seized with the illness that culminated in his death.

That his condition was not much improved was evidenced by his repeated assertion that lie was locked up because lie owed money and couldn't pay it. Some of his friends are inclined to be lieve that he fell in with a bad crowd here and was induced to drink and that the high altitude to which he-was unaccus tomed caused the liquor to affect his brain, Unless this latter statement should prove correct, there is little bkep of the big mate.s betaos wmlted ' I I 't r ý"ýý ý r' I ll ". f I I I ý.. or' tbýý ý $ ý0 0p ' ý -1 . 11 1ýyy ý ` ý - ý .4 Y. 1111+ ^ ' ... «:r ý ý Ch.11..I . ý,t 1 " Ir l tý aý \ ýt, ~pI . 1 A1 A , ,wv;t v ".ý 1ý1111 ý,rN ýý1 Mrr`ý '.t.r"4 l ý ,,.
