V- i JUDITH GAP IS LOCATED IN THE CENTER OF TH E LAR G EST AND MOST PROLIFIC WINTER WHEAT REGION IN THE WORLD Judith Gap Journal -■—......-t VOL. 4. NO 37. JUDITH GAP. MONTANA. FRIDAY. JULY 26. 1912. PRICE, FIVE CENTS LITTLE BROTHER OF THE TRUSTS Philadelphia, July 24.—Terming Woodrow Wilson "The Little Brother of the Trusts," Richard Talbot, not ed New England oil prober and foe of Standard Oil, in a stirring novel en titled "The Chain Breakers," points out that the governor of New Jersey lias no moral right to pose ns the rad ical friend of the plain people, since he has failed to urge the New Jersey legislature to exercise its constitu tional power to revoke the charters of the Standard Oil trust, the Meat trust and other offending corpora tions in his own state. "As governor of New Jersey, Woodrow Wilson has more power to curb piratical corporations than con gress or the president of the United States," he says. "What has he done?' Nothing. Then why should he go about the country declaring he is willing to tight the trusts of the na tion when he has failed to attack those in his own state? "The legislature of New Jersey has always had full authority to revoke the charters of the trusts incorpor ated there without appealing to the courts. The governor ol New Jersey has never taken action against them. If he desired to pose as the radical friend of the American consumer, he should have forced the revoking of the charters of the Staudard Oil trust, the Meat trust and other offending corporations in his own state. "Little brother of the trusts is the proper name to apply to a governor who does not ask the legislature to revoke the charters of the convicted trusts iu his own state." Bearing out his statement that Wil son has been in position to prove him self a champion of the plain people by dealing a death blow to combines chartered in Jersey, Talbot, in his book quotes the constitution of the state. Following is an extract from the corporation act of New Jersey which is also interesting. "The charter of every corporation, ot any supplement thereof, shall be subject to alteration, suspension and repeal, in the discretion of the legis lature, and the legislature may at pleasure dissolve corporations." 7?./. m.

BEER 3 AND HAYNE-S, "THE PIONEER J OF JUDITH GAP" Talbot, who is a Philadelphia boy, being a graduate of the Pennsylvania law school, has been in the city for the past week renewing old acquaint ances. "Governor Wilson claims to be a progressive and a champion of the plain people," he said today. "He is neither. "What has he done to substantiate these claims? Nothing. Since he has been governor of New Jersey he has had the grandest opportunity iu the world to deal with the trusts. He could have thrown his mtluence with the New Jersey legislature, which has unlimited power in reference to the trusts, and accomplished untold good for the American people. ".Since üe has been governor he has held the club which he could have wielded successfully to force the trusts to cut down the cost of living. The American people cannot afford to put Woodrow Wilson in the presi dential chair. Under the smooth veneer of his claims to be a progres sive and a friend of the people, he is a reactionary of just as pronounced a type as William Howard Taft. "What would have Theodore Roos evelt done had he been governor of New Jersey with a legislature, having the power that legislation has in re lation to the trusts? When you glance at Roosevelt's record, yon have your answer, clearcut and true. The thump of his big stick against the hides of the national plunderers would have resounded around the world. "The state of New Jersey can do more to curb the trusts than congress and the president of the United States. In the name ot the American people let us call on the governor and the legislature there to end the career of piratical New Jersey cor porations. These companies have forfeited their right to live. The state should destroy its baneful off springs." In Chapter 5 of "The Chain Break ers," Mr. Talbot says: "If the governor of New Jersey was in complete sympathy with the struggle of the people for commercial freedom, he would have directed public attention toward the necessary reform iu a message to the legislature a year or more ago. If the state of New Jersey does not revoke these charters, their governor should not claim that he is willing to attack the trusts throughout the nation." Mr. Talbot's book is up to the hour. Iu a plain, convincing manner he describes the conditions of evil in the country which Theodore Roose velt. as the leader of the progressive party movement, has pledged himself to light to the end. The novel from the first chapter to the last is a powerful seconder to Roosevelt's plea for more social jus tice and an abolition of the strong holds of special privilege. With forceful arguments, which smash home to the understanding because of their soundness and pure logic, the book upholds the propaganda of Theodore Roosevelt and declares it is a light the republic must follow if it desires to escape crumbling to cer tain ruin. Following are some of the signifi cant quotations from the "Chain Breakers" which have a bearing on the present day political situation and the approaching big struggle be tween the progressives and the two old parties, which represent special privilege: "Among those who hastened to congratulate the Baltimore nominee were the emissaries of big business. The people want no past friends of the trusts elected as present cham pions of the people. "1 have lived sufliciently long to believe that Washington, Lincoln, John Brown and Theodore Roosevelt are part of a divine plan of progress. "The light between the bull moose and the octopus is the real battle of the year. "No boss-controlled candidate was ever inoculated with the virus of re form. "America is not ready for political slavery. The people are preparing to dissolve the partnership between the trusts and the bosses. The bosses seek power; the trusts profits. The thunderbund and the plunderbund are becomiug an impossible combina tion." THE NEW LAW IS EXPLAINED^ Washington, July 24.—Following is a synopsis of the instructions issued by the secretary of the interior for the administration of the new three year homestead law: 1. Period of residence reduced from five to three years, to count from the time actual residence is established. Proof must be submitted within live years of date of entry. 2. Cultivation of not less than one sixteenth beginning with the second year and not less than one-eighth beginning with the third year and un til final proof. Mere breaking is not sufficient; seed must be planted iu good faith. Grazing not accepted ex cept as to certain lands opened to en try under special acts provided there fore. 3. Secretary will not reduce the re quired area of cultivation because of any physical or financial disabilities of the eutryman. but only where ex action of the statutory area is unrea sonable on account of peculiar condi tions of soil; applications for such re duction must be made during the first year on forms furnished by local land ollices. These applications are passed upon by the commissioner, with right of appeal to the secretary. 4. Soldiers and sailors must reside on entries one year before receiving credit for service; must show culti vation of not less than one-eighth for at least one year. 5. Entrymen cannot receive consid eration from the commissioner of ap plications to extend beyond the ordi nary period of six months the period allowed for establishment of resi dence, but the homesteader's rights will be adjudicated when the question is raised. Homesteaders must go on the land as soon as hindering cause is removed. 6. Absence of live months in each year allowed, but continued residence as to the other seven must he shown. Two live-month periods of absence, al thuugh in different years of the eutrv will not be allowed; six months' ab sence renders entry subject to contest. Extended periods of absence only re spected, in final proof or contests, where notice of such absences have been given, both at the beginning and upon return. Former laws as to ab sence not repealed. 7. Commutation (where it hereto fore existed) not affected, except that entrymau must be a citizen of the United States. 8. Where an eutryman dies his widow or legal successor may make up the three-year period, residence not being required of the widow or other heir, and only cultivation being necessary.

Proof must he made within live years. 10. Any hardship resulting from the above is eliminated bv the ruling that one having an entry under the old law may show cultivation of re quired areas named in the new law for any two successive years. Other hardships possible to arise under fail ure to elect are to be adjudicated by the secretary of the interior and at torney general. 11. Where the price of a tract is required to be paid, installments fall ing beyond the period of residence re quired by the new law, proof may be submitted as in other cases but final jertificate will uot issue until all iu \a«aUmeuts are paid. 12. Entries under Sec. 0 of the en larged homestead (lands in Utah and Idaho only) law must still be culti vated as before—one-eighth the sec ond and one-fourth the third, fourth and fifth years, v, ith seven years for final proof. 13. The new act applies to entries under reclamation acts and to Kin kaid entries iu Nebraska, except as to cultivation. 14. Persons having entries made prior to June 8, 1912, are warned that it may not be to their advantage to have their entries adjudicated under the new law, and are urged to care fully consider the matter. Desiring to submit proof under the laws under which their entries were made, they must notify the local land ofiice bv registered mail before Oct. 4, 1912. THE HAY CROP IN THE NORTHWEST In much of the Dakotas and in near ly all Montana the crop of native hay is unusually bountiful the present season. The unbroken lands are covered with vegetation such as is seldom seen in the areas named. Old timers say that the native grass crop this year has not been exceeded dur ing the past twenty years. In some favored locations as the river bottoms, the blue joint hay will run more than a ton to the acre, and even on the bench lands much of the entire area will well repay cutting, even where the growtli may be too light for pro fitable cutting, the pasture furnished is going to mean much to the farmers of those states. Here tlitn is an opportunity such as seldom comes to the farmers of the West. May they improve it to the utmost. That hay should all be cut and cured where it is at all possible to accomplish this end. It is an op portunity that seldom comes and it ought to be improved to the utmost. The hay that is thus furnished may be kept for two or three years should the surplus not be wanted the coming winter, next season may be dry. The growth may be as far short of normal as it is above normal the preseut sea son. When should this hay he cut? It cannot be cut too soon. That which is cut before harvest will be the best bay as far as quality is concerned. Therefore every effort should be made tc cut the crop at once and to store it with care. But should the ranchman uot he able to harvest all this crop before the grain harvest is ready, they should go on and harvest it at a to in hay hay It sist not it in and al Much of the way as far as Great Falls, Mont., prairie roads laid out along sectional lines are to be found. These are considered extremely de sirable for rapid and pleasant touring. Opportunely cities are so located as to permit travelers spending the night in a well equipped hotel without com pelling them to make great mileage to later period. The harvesting of this hay may continue on until the late autumn, although the quality of the hay becomes of increasing woodiness deteriorates with the advance of the season after the usual time for har vesting grain. Every effort therefore should be made to harvest this hay because of the service that it may render within the next year or two. This hay should be harvested with care. It should not be allowed to cure too far before it is raked. It should not be allowed to lie in win rows or even in bunches for days and even weeks after it lias been raked. It should not be stacked in a careless sliipshod manner, such as will not re sist the advent of rain. The prairie resists rain much more perfectly than nearly all the kinds of cultivated hay, hence if it is properly Btacked, the loss from rain or melted snow will not be very great, and yet oftentimes it is very considerable because of the careless way in which the stacking is done. Just a little more pains in keeping the eenter of the stacks high, in keeping the stack equally well tramped in the process of erection and especially iu topping out the stack, may make the difference be tween much loss and practically no loss at all. Those who put up hay should not grudge the small addition al cost of putting it up properly as compared with putting it up in a care less fashion which is so frequently done. None of this hay should be al lowed to go to waste. The pasture that is not cut for hay mav also he made to serve a good pur pose. It will enable the ranchman to carry over such stock as they may have without difficulty.

This follows trom the fact that the» western grasses may cure upon tlm ground in which they glow. This explains how it is possible sometimes to make hay one season largely com posed of grasses that grew the pre vious season. Ranchmen should aim to carry over their stocks of cattle as far as this may be possible and es pecially in the line of females. Such animals will be in great demand iu the near future, to supply the farms of the ranchmen.

Stockwell, who has one fourth of an acre planted to a newr variety of raspberries on her farm four miles west of the city, has real ized IK crates of 24 quarts each from the first picking. The second picking will give at least 12 crates, after which it is estimated that live or six more will be secured, making a total of 35 crates. The price received is 82 per crate or *105 gross, at which rate an acre will return 140 crates worth *420. The cost of picking is 75 cent per crate and it is estimated that 25 cents will cover all other incidentals, leaving a net profit of *280 per acre. The berries are equal in size and fla vor of the best which any market af fords.
