Judith Gap Journal VOL. 4. NO 29. JUDITH GAP. MONTANA. FRIDAY. MAY 31. 1912. PRICE, FIVE CENTS NEW JERSEY IS FOR TEDDY Newark, May 28.--One of the most surprising factors Theo* dore Roosevelt has won in the primaries since he began his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination was re* corded bv the Republican voters of New Jersey. Indications from incomplete returns are that he carried every congres* sional district in the stat; as well as the state at large and that all 28 delegates New Jersey will send to Chicago will be Roosevelt men. Governor Wilson won his own state against a strong opposi tion headed by his political ene mies within the state, and ap pears to have 24 of the 28 dele gates, including the delegates at large. Colonel Roosevelt's indicated plurality on the preferential vote is 10,000. Theodore Roosevelt's victory in the New Jersey primary election is conceded by the lead ers of the state Taft organiza tion.

The main features of the original bill are retained and all objectionable pro posed amendments rejected. As the bill is agreed upon, tlie homestead period is reduced from live to three years, and entrymen are permitted leave of absence of not to exceed live consecutive months each year, being required to notify the local land of fice when they leave the land and the date of their return. The cultiva tion clause is incorporated, which re quires the entrvmau to cultivate not less than one-sixteenth of his entry the second year and one eighth the third year, before receiving patent. The bill will apply to all entries in cluding enlarged homestead entries and all pending entries. Entrymen who have not yet re ceived patent are given the privilege of completing their proof under the three-year bill or continuing under the old law as they may prefer. Sen ator Borah is much pleased over the long-delayed agreement of the con ference committee, and is now hope ful that the bill will filially pass and become a law in the form in which it is now left by the conference com mittee. Senator New lands did not attend the meeting of conferees to day, but the other committeemen feel satisfied that he will approve the bill and join in the report. M. E. Churches.

The man who will "Try any old thing once'' is liable to get stung a scandalous number of times! DEMOCRATIC i CAUCUS HELD The democrats of Judith Gap pre cinct gathered at Bain's hall last Hat- 1 nrday evening in caucus, according j to the call issued by the county cen tral committee, and organized as fol lows: Chairman—C. L. Beers. Secretary—C. L. Sullivan. After the call was read, the follow ing delegates to the county conven tion at White Sulphur Springs Mon day. were elected: Delegates— J. B. Bain, G. A. Kay, Ora Wilson, Robert Pieplio. C. F. Sullivan. Alternates— T. L. Davis, C. M. Gurley, W. T. Fringer, 1*. J. Murphy, C. B. Riede man. On motion the caucus ballotted on choice for president, resulting in a unanimous vote for Champ Clark, and the delegates were instructed to use all honorable means to electa del egation from this county to the Balti more convention favorable to the gentleman from Missouri. J. B. Bain and Robert I'iepho left Monday morning as delegates and witti proxies to represent Judith Gap ■ in tlie county convention. Unlike the republican county ceu tral committee, which was under the hypnotic inliuence of Boss Tooley, the democratic county central com mittee, in the spirit of fairness, al lowed the democrats of the county to say who they wanted for president. That they appreciated the opportun ity to register their preference was demonstrated by the big turnout last Saturday night. A GOOD MARKET FOR ALL ALFALFA Billings, Mont., May 29.—Alfalfa growers in this section are assured of a ready satisfactory market in the future in contracts being made by a representative of a Nebraska Alfalfa Meal Mill manufacturing concern. The farmers are to receive $8 per ton and the company will take all that it is possible to supply. The certainty of a market for the crop at a paying ligure will greatly stimulate the cul tivation of the great forage plant in Eastern Montana, the average yield of which is from 3 to 7 tons per acre on irrigated land. BILLINGS PLANT WAS TAKEN OVER New York, May 23.—Montana as a beet sugar territory and the part the American Sugar Refining company played there came in for inquiry to day at the hearing in the case in equity instituted by the government to cause the dissolution of the so-cal led sugar trust. Chester S. Morey, the president of the Great Western Sugar company of New Jersey, and chief agent of the late 11. O. Ilavemeyer m Die western beet sugar country, was a witness to day. The Great Western Sugar company owns a factory at Billings, Mont. The method used in acquiring this plant was toldtoday. Witliiuthree months after Havemeyer's attention had been called to the Billings company the Ag ricultural Investment company, a Ilavemeyer concern, had acquired a controlling share in the stock, the witness said. He admitted that an election was held, the local men re moved and other of llavemeyer's men had become,directors. The plant is still run under the name of the Billings Sugar company, although since 1907 its entrie stock j has been owned by the Great West ern Sugar company, said Mr. Morey Congregational Church Announcemnet. Sunday June 2 at 10 o'clock a. m. Subject: "God in Relation to War." Sunday school at 11 o'clock. Every one invited to both services. —F. Vasku, pastor. it a a SMALL & RIEDEMAN REAL ESTATE FARM LOANS INSURANCE JuditH Gap, Montana ROTHIEMAY WILL CELEBRATE 4TH To the Editor of the Journal. Dear Sir: Would like to havp you give usa write upin your next week's issue regarding a Fourth of July cele bration which is going to be pulled off at Rotliiemay. Please do not say it is being planned. It has been plan ned and isasure thing for the Fourth. This celebration of horse sports will undoubtedly be the best ever given in the state. Although it will not he as extensively advertised as the Bil lings farce of last year, it will be of the highest calibre in every respect, as it is being handled by men who know how to manage an affair of this kind; men who know theinside work ings of tlie Big Cheyenne Frontier's Day celebration, which celebration we will reproduce at Hotliiemay. The location, as you know, is ideal —a big wide Hat and within easy reach of every one who can ride a horse or drive one. One of the features will be a big bowery dance, platform, tthxito, with a full orchestra. There will also be a big band on the grounds all day. An admission of $1 will be charged all adults, and unlike these free for nothing celebrations that have noth ing, we will be there with tlie goods, and we are going to pay to get tlie best. There will be over #350 given away in cash prizes, which will insure the best of talent and horses, and will give everyone, who comes, cause to remember Rotliiemay. All contests and races are free for all. The more the merrier. Tlie judges will be square and impartial, and mounted so that they can judge accurately and will be men of exper ience. It will include a big bucking con test, roping contest, rope spinning contest, quarter mile race, half mile race, half mile ladies' race, stake race, quarter mile turu sta^e and back, relay race one mile, chatige horses and saddle at half mile post, quarter mile pony race, and half mile pony race. Sec. Cel. Com. —Gerald C. Ede, MONTANA HAS BEST CLIMATE What sort of climate has Montana? is a question often asked. One part of tlie state is on tlie Atlantic and tlie other on the Pacific slope of tlie con tinent; it embraces an area as great as two thirds of France or Germany; elevations range from 2,000 to 0,000 feet, rising even to ll.ooo feet in the uninhabited mountain ranges; there are regions of plains, and of foot hills; there are sheltered basins and valleys; and for these reasons climat ic conditions at one point differ from those at another not similarly situat ed. Tlie climate of Montana is excel lent; it is h healthful and exhilera ting; the water is pure; and tlie air clear. dry, vitalizing, filled with oz one— is of a kind which it is a luxury to breathe. Perhaps nine out of ev ery ten persons who have lived one whole year in Montana prefer its cli mate tlie year round to the climate of any other region of which they have personal knowledge. The country is healthful and the death rate is the lowest except one. A government report outlie climate of Montana contains the following: "Tlie light snowfall in tlie valleys throughout tlie state winter mont lis is usually speedily evaporated by tin* Chinook winds which are prevalent from Oregon to Nebraska, from tlie Peace River to Arizona, being par ticularly common in Montana, where they do much to modify the climate." The chiuook is a wind which comes from the warm Japanese current in tlie Pacific ocean and tempers tlie cli mate in all tlie country it readies. There are cold days in Montana as are to lie expected in a northern state, but a cold "spell of weather" usually lasts only two or three clays at a time, and outdoor work during tlie winter months is seldom prevented by the severity of the cold. MONTANA TO BE GREAT OIL FIELD Billings, Mont., May 29.—Gas and oil are practically unlimited in quan tities will be found in the cottonwood district, which is located about 2 » miles southwest of this city in the opinion of R. J. Connolly, an Okla homa oil expert who lias made a care full investigation of that region, and who lias headed a company which will begin operations in a short, time. Two wells were sunk in the district a few years ago and although their depth is only 175 feet tlie gas pres sure is sutliciently strong to keep six inch streams of water llowing con stantly, and when lighted tlie gas burns to a height of ten feet. It is claimed by Mr. Connolly that if a drill is sent to a depth of 1,7<H> to 2, 000 feet an enormous lake of oil will be tapped and the gas resulting from this will he piped to this city and oth er places in tlie state. HEAVY CROP OF APPLES Billings, Mont., Mav 29.—There will be an exceptionally heavy crop of apples and other fruits in Eastern Montana this year is tlie opinion of II. L. Dean, state horticulturist, who is making an inspection of orchards in tliis section. "I have already vi sited many orchards." said Mr. Dean, "and with hardly a single exception all of them are loaded with blossoms, thus indicating that the crop will be one of the greatest on record." Com menting comparatively, Mr. Dean said that orchards are generally in a very healthy state east of tlie moun tains in Montana, and that they are free from all diseases and pests ex cept blight which is found in a few trees iu some orciiards.

P. ROAD UNDER MORGAN CONTROL Seattle, May 24. Has James J. Hill parted with control of tlie North ern Pacific railway and has that con trol passed to the Morgan interests to such an extent that the Chicago & Northwestern eventually will domin ate in Northern Pacific affairs? An affirmative answer to tliis ques tion, alike interesting to financiers and railroad officials, is given by well known local bankers, whose sources of information in New York apparent ly are beyond question as to reliabil ity and authenticity. The chief elements in the gigantic Atlantic to Pacific railroad system, in tlie firm belief of local financiers as well as eastern financial authori ties, will be the New York Central lines, tlie Chicago & Northwestern and tlie Northern. Pacific. School Program. t)n Friday evening at H o'clock sharp the exercisesgiven annually by tlie children of the Judith Gap schools will take place. Tlie program will be very interesting and every one is in vited to be in attendance at the school house assembly room. Tlie program will consist of several dialogues and playlets, among them: "Famous Friends" with live charac ters, "Mind Your Own Business" a sewing circle skit in two parts, "Pi ous"—a playlet in three parts by the smaller children, "When We Are Men"—by eight boys, "The Awak ening of the Flowers"—by nine girls, several recitations and songs by the members of the school. Music will be furnished by tlie Swedish String Orchestra.
