AND THEIR MURDER WALLS OF SALOON WERE OF CAN VAS AND PROPRIETOR AND BAR TENDER WERE HELPLESS. RECALLS THE BORDER DAYS Trouble Feared When a Ranoher Rode His Horse Into the Saloon and Was 'Put Out by Ragsdale. aPECIAL TO TtHE INTER MOUNTAIN. Missoula, Oct. &,6-The affair which oc eurred at Trout Creek, the new freight division point on Ie Northern Pacific, early Sunday morning, which resulted in the death of'Prank Udell and the wound ing of George W. Ratsdale, as told in the Inter Mountain, was of the old time border brand. A rancher first rode his horse into Rags dale's saloon like the old time cowboy and then began to abuse Ragsdale. The latter put him out. The rancher and friends returned later and began firing their Winchesters through the saloon, which has tent walls, hitting Ragsdale and Udell, his bartender. The latter died here yesterday afternoon. Sheriff Goes Out. Sheriff Thompson and Deputy Sheriff Watson, accompanied by County Attorney Hall, have gone to the scene of the tragedy to secure evidence and make ar rests. If an arrest is made it is expected that a preliminary hearing will be held at Trout Creek. Udell, the dead bartender, was about 38 years old and a member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles at Republic, Wash. The lodge has been notified and the local aerie has charge of the body. An inquest will be held at Trout Creek. Ragsdale's Story. Ragsdale at the hospital was able to make the following statement of the affair : "About xI o'clock a rancher came to the saloon. I had never seen him before and did not know his npme. He rode his horse inside, and I did not care particularly for that, but he became abusive and spoke mean to several men at the bar, as well as myself. I told him to cut it out. In stead, he became more abusive, and I struck him several times and threw him out. He came again and made the remark, 'I don't want to have any trouble with you, but I will certainly get you.' "About s o'clock two men on horseback came up to the saloon and commenced firing into it. I was struck in the arm, and when I went to go behind the bar for my revolver another bullet struck me in the knee. At the first volley all the bot tles on the back bar were broken. Two railroad men who were out in front of the saloon saw the two horsemen come up and open fire on the saloon. They squat ted down during the firing and were ap parently not seen by the two. Joe Young also saw the men, and said they were two in number. I don't know the rancher's name. I did hear that he was a widower and had a little daughter. I never saw him before he came into my place last night. I had known him for years, and we were brother Eagles. I have a saloon at Jennings, and opened up this saloon at Trout Creek September as." WOULD NOT CONSIDER IT Woloott's Bill Against lissoula for $3,000 Was Not Itemized. APECIAL TO TlE INTER MOUNTAIN. Missoula, Oct. 6.-The claim of Wol cott for damages against the city, growing out of the park dispute, was presented last night in the shape of a bill for $3,ooo. As the bill was not itemized it was not considered. It was proposed that the city institute a suit for $3.500 for the wrongful fencing of the city park land. It went to the ways and means committee. The health of the city was reported to be in excellent condition by Health Of ficer May. Thirty-one dollars was realized last month from the impounding of stray stock. The month's fines were $30. Several building petitions were pre sented. The bicycle and auto ordinance regulating their speed was read and adopted. The fire engine question was not settled, but went over to the next meeting. RUNAWAY IN GARDEN CITY SPECIAL TO THE INTER MOUNTAIN. Missoula, Oct. 6.-Peter Feddersohn had an exciting runaway experience yesterday afternoon when his team ran down Main street at a a-minute clip, threw him out at the corner of Main and Attee streets and wound up against a poplar tree, more or less frightened for their actions. Mr. Feddersohn was cut and bruised about the head, but not seriously hurt. --- - Children's Week Half Price For GLASSES Many people are willing to sacrifice themselves and- their children to the prejudice of "what people say."

COMPACT EXHIBITS MEAN SOMETHING STATE FAIR 48 NOT ENORMOUS, BUT IT 18 BIG ADVERTISEMENT FOR STATE, NEVERTHELESS. CREDIT DUE TO OFFICIALS Pace and Shoemaker Have Worked Mar vels in Getting the Big Show in Shape for Opening. SPECIAL TO THE INTER MOUNTAIN. Helcna, Oct. 6.-Between three and four miles northwest of Main street lie the State Fair grounds, just now the center of attraction of the whole state. It is an admirable location, far out there on the level floor of the valley, with the city in plain sight and apparently much nearer than the measurements show. Clusters of foliage, now tinged with the tints of autumn, add color and life to the landscape. The Great Northern tracks run direct to the grounds. The company has established a schedule that provides ample train service. Still the crowds that have patronized the fair have not yet been large. It was not expected that they would he at this period. By the end of the week, however, when the visitors from out of town begin to arrive in full strength, there will be plenty of work for all those trains. As Old as Scripture. No fair ever held started just on time. Scriptures fail to record the fact, but the chances are that when old Adam and Eve gathered in their harvest from the garden of Eden and prepared a show of red apples and enormous rutabagas for the edifica tion of their progeny they failed to pull the exposition off exactly on the date pre viously set. It has been a habit of fairs ever since to be slow in starting. So it is that the State Fair, though it opened yes terday, is just now getting into its stride. To J. W. Pace, the secretary, snore than to any other man, and to James Shoe maker, his assistant, is due the credit for having the fair so far advanced as it is. Mr. Pace is an admirable secretary and he could not have had a more tactful and able assistant than Mr. Shoemaker, who' will be remembered as assistant chief clerk of the house at the last session of the legislature. No one not familiar with the business of holding fairs has any idea of the amount of work that falls on these offi cials. There is a bewildering mass of detail to be looked after, innumerable problems to solve, scores and hundreds of people after one at every corner with questions to ask. A good secretary of a fair association must be qualified to hold the most delicate diplomatic job in the' world. .Pace has those qualifications. He never loses his temper, never fails to give a courteous response to a question, never fails to deal promptly with every problem. "Since Sunday lie has accom plished marvels in bringing order out of chaos. Today the fair, as a result of his work, is practically comopletel Not a Large Affair.' It is not an enormous fair, when one comes to size it all up. In fact, it is not much larger than the average county fair, but it is thoroughly representative. Its compactness, in fact, is one of its chief merits. In a comparatively small space are set forth in strikiug manner exhibits that give a better idea than could. otherwise be obtained of the variety and richness of Montana products. There is an absence of mere space fillers in the exhibits. Everything means; something, and when one has been over the whole place he has learned a lot about the wealth of Montana. He has gained ideas that would have eluded him had he been bewildered by a mass of non essentials. All in all, it is the best adver tisement of Montana for Montana people that the state ever had. When the big 'Butte delegation comes over Thursday the residents of the greatest mining camp on earth will learn something. They will find that mining-though its importance is fully recognized by admirable displays at' the fair-is not the only industry of the state. Main Building. The chief exhibits are housed in the commodious main building. The larger and bulkier natural and manufactured pro ducts of the state are to be found for the most part on the main floor, while on the second floor are the exhibits of arts and crafts and similar things, together with the booths of the various business houses that have taken space. Then, out of doors, are two large tents which contain the interesting exhibits made by the agricultural and implement houses. Also apart from the main build ing are a number of tents and temporary structures housing exhibits and displays made by business men and commercial houses. The arrangement of all these structures is admirable and it is easy for the visitor to find his way around. Off to the south of the main building is the de partment devoted to livestock exhibits and a most interesting department it is. Race Track. The race track is but a few yards from the main building. Here, of course, the chief interest of the day centers. The track is in good condition today, though it was a bit heavy yesterday. The grand stand is commodious and all arrangements for the care of the spectators are ex cellent. The fair grounds are most rigidly po liced. No suspiciolus characters are per mitted on the grounds. There is a marked absence, even outside the" gates, of the sure-thing games and fakes that usually characterize an exposition of this charac ter. The visitor to the State Fair, how, ever unsophisticated he may be, is safe. Regarding a Recent Trip IMade Over the, New York Central Charles Battell Loomis writes: "Allow me to tell you what a pleasant trip I had over your lines. With a good book and with the country that lies out side the window panes to look at and the characters that set alongside the same panes to study and the thought of the dining car, traveling is such a pleasant thing that I wonder the whole world does not travel all the time." Typhoid at Forsyth. SPECIAL TO THE INTES MOUNTAIN. Forsyth, Oct 6.-There are several casse of typhoid fever here. A number of the patients have been removed to St. Vin cent's hospital at Billings, among them being Miss Smith, a school teacher, and Henry Clifford and George Northway. WIND BLOWS THE BIG CANVAS DOWN FARMERS FOUND T4'ERE WAS NO AUDITORIUM FOR THEM TO MEET IN AT FAIR. TODAY'S SESSIONS PUT OFF Institute Will Meet Thursday and Friday Evenings in G. A. R. Hall-Pro. gram as Arranged. Ilelrna, Oct. 6.-The tornado which struck the fair grounds early this morning carried away the big tent in which it was proposed that the farmers institute that was to commence today and continue until Friday was to have been held.
