ORGANIZE RACE FOR FRANK
LINDBRMAN FOR SENATOR
(From Helena Record-Herald)
Starting on June 9, when Prank B.
Linderman filed his candidacy for the
United States senate, subject to the
decision of the Republican voters of
Montana, and building up an organi-i
ration that reaches to every county of
the state, is the accomplishment of the
Linderman for Senate club, of which
Dr. W. R. Hopkins of Helena is presi
dent, according to an announcement
from tiie headquarters of the club in
Helena.
With the work of organizing going
ahead in every county, Dr. Hopkins
avers that upwards of 30 workers are
devoting their entire time to the pro
motion of the candidacy of Mr. Lin
derman. These workers are in addi
tion to scores of other volunteers who
are helping the organization. Requests
for placards and smaller campaign
literature are pouring into headquar
ters here, said Dr. Hopkins.
"We are getting a number of amus
ing letters from Blackfeet Indians, re
questing literature," said Dr. Hopkins.
"Of course, Mr. Linderman is well
known among these Indians where he
spent much time gathering material
for his stories dealing with Indian life
and it is natural that they are anxious
to help him."
Mr. Linderman, who recently ac
quired control of a large hotel prop
erty at Kaliapell, has found it im
possible to leave his home town for an
extended campaign trip thus far, but
has put affairs in shape so he can
take the road within a few days, ac
cording to advices received by Dr.
Hopkins.
He will be in Helena next weak and
his headquarters will have arranged
a speaking itinerary that will take
turn to every section of the state and
f
will keep him busy until the eve of
the primary on August 28. A num
ber of speaking dates have had to be
refused on account of the short time

BUSINESS IS GOOD
While we were expecting a
goodly amount of advertising
for this week, we were not pre

we have been compelled to re

weekly issue. Many articles of
local news have been crowded
out They will appear later.
Patrons will serve their own in

and also take note of the men

LEE DENNIS STANDS ON HIS
RECORD AS COMMISSIONER
Lee Dennis, republican candidate
for governor, has a record open to in
vestigation. Among his outstanding
achievements is the increased saving
in freight rates made possible to the*
farmers stockmen of Montana.
^ P® r cen t in rates between points
t * le 8ta *e * n d from points out
side to P° intB Montana, amounts to
$1,386,378.
The actual saving on interstate
traffic from October, 1920, to March
31, 1924, inclusive, amounted to $877,
980. The estimated saving in denying
and
Through his initiative and untiring ef
fort, one-third of the freight rates on
hay, feed, grain and various commod
ities was saved daring the most try
ing period hi Montons history.
A similar saving was made in the
forced shipment of feeder stock to
points out of the state.
Figures taken from the office of
the State Board of Equalization show
that the actual and estimated saving
to tee people of Montana in denying
the petition of the American Railway
Express company tor an increase of
«re jncrewTOu TreigriT. rawg Trorn Aprs?
to December, 1924, is $140,248. The
estimated saving for 1926 is $28,788
on intrastate traffic and on interstate
traffic tor the same period is $539.404
making a total of $1388378.
As heed of the railroad commission,
Lee Dennis took an active part in the
general investigation of freight rate»,
cooperating with the Interstate Com
merce Commission which resulted in
a flat decrease of 10 per cent in al
freight rates, which has applied to
the total freight revenue of all roads
in Montana for 1921, residents of tels
state have been relieved of an annual
transportation bill of $5,460,614. This

Little Belt is one of the best streams
for fish remaining in this vicinity but
its waters have been thrashed so thor
oughly and continuously by fishermen
that the number of fish has been per
ceptibly lessened and it was necessary
to have the supply replenished if them
