PRICE, FIVE CENTS THE REPUBLICAN CONVENTION The delegates to the republican convention met in Ilariowton last Monday afternoon and elected eleven delegates and eleven alternates to the Livingston convention. The work was done in an orderly and harmoni ous way, according to the usages of the party. The Harlowton brass band met the trains bearing the delegates and es corted them to the Graves Hotel, and at the convention the musicians ren dered several selections, one of them being the Star Spangled Banner, which brought all to their feet. At 2:30 p. m. II. N. Jones called the convention to order, and J. II. Lackey was chosen chairman, and Lyle A. Cowan and Dr. W. B. Dodg ers were elected secretaries.

The committee on credentials re ported as follows, which report was unanimously adopted: We, your committee on resolutions, would report the following: Be it resolved by the Republican party of Meagher County, Montana, in convention assembled: That we recognise the fact that the political question of the present time is the issue of special interest against public welfare. That the most im portant element of this issue is the restoration of all political power to the people of the United States and the several states in whose hands it rightly belongs, and by whom and for whom it should be exercised. We, believing that the Direct Pri mary Bill drawn by the non-partisan commission appointed by Governor Morris is a fair and just measure and that it meets with the approval of an oy-r whel miug jiutjority of the voters of all parties In^Meagher county we hereby demand of State Senat or C. 1*.

We insist that his refusal, thus far to so indicate his willing ness, has been in direct violation of his duty to respond to and to repre sent the known wishes of the people of this county, who have twice hon ored him with an election to the state senate. Recognising in the candidacy of Theodore Roosevelt for President, the greatest hope of our people for civil liberty and ^industrial justice, we declare him to be our choice for the republican nomination for presi dent. His splendid record in pro gressive legislation, made during the seven years of his presidency, is a sufficient guarantee that another ad ministration by him would be thoroughly responsive to the needs of the Republic for wise initiative and courageous leadership along the lines that will unerringly lead to con tinual national growtli and to widely diffuse prosperity. Resolved, that the delegates from this convention to the Livingston convention, are hereby instructed to vote as a unit for delegates to the Republican National Convention, in structed to vote for Theodore Roose velt for President. And the dele gates are further instructed to vote as a unit in all matters coming be fore the state convention. To the Republican state conven tion, at Livingston, Montana. Geutlemeu:—This convention o t the republican electors of Meagher county, constituted of delegates duly elected at precinct primaries regu larly called for that purpose, has been made necessary by reason of the betrayal of the republicans of this county by men who fraudulently seized control of the constituted machinery of the party for the pur pose of that betrayal. To the end of that our action today may be understood and justified, we submit the following recital of facts: That the meeting of the Republican county central committee of Meagher county, at White Sulphur Springs, on the 24th dav of April, 1912, was held under a call of the chairman thereof, which call specified that the sole-* business to eome before the commit tee would be the calling of a county eouveution for the election of dele gates to the Liviustou convention lo (Continued on page 2.) SHE HAS A SISTER IN JUDITH GAP For years Dr. Genthe had searched very country on the face of the globe for a Venus de Milo in real life. He had almost come to the con * elusion that such a woman did not ezist to - day , when he met the object of his quest face to face on Broadway, New York. The New York Sunday World of The New York Sunday World of illustrated description of the discovery lady is Miss Gertrude Eddington, formerly IL W. Boulter of Judith Gap. Mr. agent here, having lived here during children are living on the Boulter There is a striking resemblance between sister as printed in the World. The lows: Suppose for ten years you had searched all over the world for a face like that of the Venus de Milo. Then suppose you saw the face you had been searching for on Broadway as you were hurrying to a matinee. What would you do? Well, this is the predicament Dr. Arnold Genthe, who recently has come to New York from San Fran cisco, found himself in the other day. For years, with the art of photog raphy as his hobby, lie had searched every country on the face of the globe for a Venus de Milo in real life. The most remote corners of the earth gas well as the most populous cities of the continent had been visited again and again without hnding the object of his 8eai'di. He had almost come to the conclusion that such a woman did not exist today, when he met the object of his quest face to face on Broadway. Before him stood a young woman, tall and stately with a pure Grecian profl le and a sereue expres sion that was unmistakably the same as the Venus de N^ilo, which for cen turies has been çecoguized as the su preme ideal of femliiine beauty. Dr. Genthe stopped short. His hand flew to his hat and he was about to bow to the beautiful creature be fore him and announce that she was the one woman he hud been searching for for teil years, when he realized what disastrous consequences might result. Suppose she mistook him for a "masher*' and dealt with him ac cordingly. Besides it would sound ridiculous to tell her on crowded Broadway that she was the Venus de Milo in real life. These and many other thoughts flashed through his mind as the object of his quest passed him. His hand dropped to his side. Even his gray hair and respectable appearance did not give him confi dence to speak to the wonderful crea ture and a moment later she was gone. At first Dr. Genthe's impulse was to follow her to her home, and in that way learn her address. He retraced his steps, pushing his way through the crowd in a vain effort to catch an other glimpse of her Venus-like face. But she had been swallowed up in the malestrom and the search had to be abandoned. When Dr. Genthe reached his stu dio he felt like reproaching himself for not speaking to the beautiful girl. Here was the one woman he had been searching for the world over, yet when he found her, he did not have the "nerve" to tell her so. But the fact that he now knew such a crea ture existed, gave him new hope. She was in New York and doubtless she would be on Broadway again. He would search for hei in company with a woman friend. When he found lier he would have his companion speak to her and present him. In this way he would run no risk of be ing misunderstood. Cautious, care ful Dr. Genthe. So, accompanied bv a woman friend, Dr. Genthe haunted Broad way every afternoon for several days. He did not seem to realize that search ing for a face on Broadway was like looking for a needle in the proverbial haystack. The quest seemed hope less. However, to make a long story short they fouud her. She was walk ing along Broadway with a music roll one sunshiny day last week. "There she is! Stop her!" cried the enthusiastic photographer to his com panion, who suited the action to the word. A moment later she had ex plained her action to the Venus-like beauty and presented Dr. Genthe, who immediately suggested that they adjourn to his studio to photograph her. So intent was Dr. Genthe on get ting the photograph that he did not ask any questions until he had sever April 14th devotes a whole page to m of a real Venus de Milo. The young formerly of Bozeman, and a sister of Mrs Boulter is the Great Northern depot past four years. Mrs. Boulter and the homestead, a few miles northeast of town Mrs. Boulter and the picture of her World article, minus the pictures f„| al negatives. The young woman seemed absolutely dumfotinded that her photograph should lie wanted. True, some of her friends had told her she had a profile like the lady on the silver dollar, but no one had ever suggested that she even remotely re sembled the famous Venus de Milo. Yet her photograph, which is shown on this page, shows how remarkable is the resemblance. In the opinion of Dr. Genthe, who is a doctor of comparative philology and philosophy having received his degree at the Universities of Jena and Berlin, she is the finest specimen of the pure Greek and the nearest approach to the supreme ideal of feminine beauty he has ever seen. At the studio. Dr. Genthe learned the identity of the Venus. She prov ed to be Miss Gertrude Eddington, aged twenty-two, from Bozeman, Montana. She had been brought up on a ranch where, as a girl, she had herded cattle, milk ! cows, and lived a healthful outdoor life. Three years ago she came to New York to go on the stage. She.appeared in jr three Frohman productions, but at the present time, is devoting all her time to studying. Her parents on both sides are German aiyl from them she inherited the blue eyes and golden hair so common in North Ger many. But not only does her perfect Gre cian profile, the serene loftiness of her expression, which seems to have nothing to do with the struggle and turmoil of life about her, and the quality of lier eye, which Homer and other Greek writers described as "cow-eyed," resemble the Venus de Milo, but her measurements corres pond exactly with the Greek ideal. She measures seven and one-half times the length of her head, ten times the length of her face, nine times the length of her hands and seven times the length of her foot. She stands live feet nine inches and weighs 140 pounds. "Miss Eddington is the nearest ap proach to the Venus de Milo I have ever seen or ever expect to see." said Dr. Genthe. "And as the Venus de Milo is the acknowledged highest standard of beauty in woman's form, it is a resemblance that she may well be proud of. One of the chief charms of the Venus de Milo is that she is not conscious of her beauty. There is nothing«sensual about her. Indeed she is almost sexless, because of the lack of some feminine quality. She seems more like a godlike thing that the artist tried to express in marble, than a human being. She seems above all petty worries and in her expression there is a certain placidity that cannot be disturbed. "All these qualities Miss Eddington possess as her photograph plainly shows. It, too, is sexless, lacking all sensual or feminine qualities. Care ful comparison with the head of the Venus de Milo will reveal the fact that it is absolutely identical. "Of course we do not know that the original of the Venus de Milo had golden hair. Personally I think she did. Red pigment has been found on the heads of many statues in Greece, and it is more than likely that the Venus de Milo was blue-eyed and golden-haired. But as far as prolile, expression and measurements are concerned, there is not the slightest discrepancy. It is the most wonder ful likeness 1 have ever encountered in all my experience as a photopraph er, artist and traveller." "1 heard a woman the other day begging another woman pitfully to give her just one more cliauce, and the other refused her." "And I suppose the one beggingf or a cliauce was in desperate need." "No, she wos at a charity bazar." Baltimore American. SMALL SUGAR BEET FACTORIES Billings, Mont., May 15.—Efforts are being made by the Park City chamber of commerce to secure the establishment there of a sugar fac tory, and as a result of a canvass of prospective growers it is learned that if the industry is secured nearly 2, 500 acres of beets will be cultivated during the initial season. It is argu ed by those favoring the proposition that the building bv the Great West ern Sugar company of small factories in the district will be more practical than the plan of transporting the beetslor comparatively long distances to the mill of this city. A committee from Park City will lay the matter before officials of the company.
