Over in Livingston the new time
table on the Northern Pacific has al
ready proved itself unsatisfactory and
there is current rumor to the effect
that a new schedule will soon be
adopted. The Livingstoi, Post speak
ing of the protests which the new
schedule has aroused says:
The Northern Pacific is receiving a
host of kicks concerning its new train
service which was inaugurated on the
23d day of May. The new service, by
which it meant the trains and the
equipment, is greatly improved ano
certainly no kick can be made on that
score, but the man who got up the
new time-table certainly made a bad
mess out of it.
A 'prominent railroad man of Spo
kane, who is visiting in this city to
day, brings the news that the cham
Per of commerce in Spokane will take
up the. new service into that city with
the Northern Pacific in an attempt to
have the time-table changed.
The Northern Pacific, it is under
stood, contends that although the
sevice may not be exactly suited to
Montana, Spokane and other places
along the route, it is better as
a whole and nipre satisfactory to the
majority of cities along the line.
Although the local superintendent's
office announced today that the new
service would certainly continue
through the summer, it is not thought
by those who know or ought to know
that it will run for more than a
month. Already a large number or
communications have been received at
the offices of the Nvrthern Pacific in
St. Paul and if the number of com
plaints becomes large enough, it is is,
lieved that they will justify a discon
tinuance of the present service as far
as time is concerned.
The directors of the Duke Coeur
d'Alene Copper Mining company will
hold a meeting at the Grand Pacific
hotel, at 8 o'clock Saturday. June 12.

St. Paul, Minn., June O.--The "tor
pedo motor," built for the 3orthern
Pacific railway in Omaha, has sus
tained the predictions made for it by
showing a speed of 60 miles an hour
between St. Paul and White Bear and
return. The tests were successful ir
every particular and the car will
make 75 miles in thU opinion of the
engineering experts, if it is forced.
The new motor is built like a tor
pedo, with a sharp prow, and is oper
ated gasoline power, developing
200 horse-power. It was built for lo
cal trafffe on branch lines and is
largely constructed of steel. It seats
75 people and has an observation
room in the rear, in addition to which
there is a smokers' apartment and a
baggage compartment. One man op
crates the car, and by means of
patented construction it is declared
to be entirely fireproof.
The direct air system of control is
used and tests on the trial trip
showed the car can be stoppeo within
its own length.
The Northern Pacific will utilize
several of the new cars on short
branch lines where the operation of
trains hauled by locomotives is. un
profitable because of limited traffic.
The car which was used in the
tests will be sent north for use on
a short branch where there is con
siderable passenger traffic at low
rates and very little else for t..
branch to handle. It is estimated
that the new car can be operated
at an expense aside from employes of
15 cents a mile,

Spokane, June 6.-Construction work
will begin within 30 days oil the Con
nell & Northern railway, running
from the main line of the Northern
Pacific railway in the central part of
\Tashington, which by building a few
branches will make through connec
tion from the Canadian boundary to
the southern limits of Washington,
also giving the Northern Pacific
three outlets to the Columbia. They
are the Northern Pacific, the Spokane,
Seattle & Portland an'd the Connell
& Northern through its connection
with the Washington Central.
One of the first steps toward con
necting the water level haul of the
Spokane, Seattle & Portland line with
the Great Northern and Northern Pa
cific, and contemplating the carrying
out of the wheat of the Big Jiend
I country, was taken when the North
ern Pacific organized as a subsidiary
company the Connell & Northern rail
This road is to be constructed by
the Northern Pacific from Connell, on
the Northern Pacific in eastern
Washington, to Adrian, on the Great
Northern, a station where the North
ern Pacific's branch line, known as
the Washington Central, connects with
the Great Northern. The latter road
was built from Cheney, 'Wash., years
ago. It taps one of the best wheat
belts in the state. At present the
wheat is turned over to the Great
Northern at Adrian for Seattle de
livery, or carried back to Cheney, a
considerable distance, for either Ta
coina or Portland delivery.
The new road will tap a rich dis
trict on the east side of Moses lake
and open for irrigation fully 100,000
acres of land, now partly or wholly
waste. The right of way has already
been secured. Railroad officials say
that as the grade is made south from
Adrian and north from Connell the
track will be laid, and before the
wheat crop of next year is harvested
it will be finding a way to the tide
water over this line,
Results are sure and swift,
Results are quick and lasting;
It penetrates the heart of disease,
That Is what Hollister's Rocky
Mountain Tea does.

J. G. Woodworth, traffic manager
for the Northern Pacific, stayed only
a brief moment in Missoula, leaving
Saturday morning on No. 6 l'or Kal
ispell. Mr. Woodworth is going over
the company's lines and proposed
lines while on his way to Ht. Paul and
the trip which lie made yesterday is
but one of many similar ones over
the different branches. Mr. WVood
worth is now on his way east from
Spokane, where he recently met tmm
chamber of commerce and the inter
state commerce commission in an at
tempt to settle the rate dispute. Ac
cording to Mr. Woodworth, the
Northern Pacific will make no at
tempt to fight at the meeting which
is to be held in Washington on June
9, but will merely await the final
decision of the commission.
Superintendent Rapelje with car No.
1996 left for Helena Saturday morningg
on a short inspection trip. These
trips are becoming a regular feature
with him now and he is fast getting
into the swing of the work again.
Mr. Rapelje will continue his present
trip to Livingston, where he and Mrs.
Itapeije will attend the wedding of
a niece.
While the attention of the operating
department is being taken up with
the new schedule and the improved
iservice the construction people aro
busy with the new double track line
between Missoula and Garrison. While
some portions of this line have been
in use for nearly a year now, the
greater part of the line is as yet
unfinished and the construction camps
are still active along the line. The
cut-off between here and Bonner
through the Bandmann ranch will,
when finished, save the road nearly
a mile, and isone of the slow sections,
and the work on the big bridges
which are necessitated by the short
cut is not progressing very fast. As
soon as the water goes down, how
ever, work will begin in earnest arn,
before many weeks the whole line
will be officially opened to traffic
Saturday marked another bunch of
transfers in the operating department
and another lot of operators were
changed about. The changes which
were announced yesterday wrn'

went to Clinton to relieve Operator
I. G. Pinning and Operator P. A.
Meckel goes to double track junction
to take the third trick.

It has been reported for some time
that the Puget Sound has In mind
a plan to make a big town at Drum
mond. This report is substantiated
in an interview with Speaker Mc
Dowell of the state legislature, who
has just returned from an extensive
trip through Montana, which is print
ed in the Butte Miner. Mr. McDowell
"1 stopped off at Drummnond on my
return to 1Butte, and I found the
town so crowded that it was almost
imprssible to secure accommodations.
I understand that the Chicago, Mil
waukee & Puget Sound railroad, run
ning parallel to the Northern Pa
cific, has taken the town of Drum
mond under its wing and will of
fer every assistance possible toward
building it up. The old town lies I
north of the Northern Pacific tracks,
and about 1,600 feet south the latter
is parallelled by the Chicago, Nil
wvaukee & Puget Sound. Between the
two toark an adeition to the torn
has been platted and streets have
been laid out. Cement sidewalks are
to be laid on Main street, in the new
addition, connecting the present
Northern Pacific depot and the site on
which the Milwaukee road is prepar
ing to build a new station. Broad
way, which crosses Main street in
about the center of the new addition,
is also to have cement sidewalks.
Main street is laid out on the old
country road, and is designed to be the
principal business street, although at
the way business lots are being sold
at the present time, Broadway threat
ens to rival it.
Bank and Newspaper.
"A great amount of interest is be
ing taken in the new part of the
town, and I understand that a well
kniwn banker, for instance, who un
till recently was in charge of one
of the Butte banking institutions, has
purchased a lot on one of the prin
cipal corners and will shortly start a
new bank, to which he will give his
personal attention. A prominent
Butte druggist has also announce'
his intention of establishing a modern
drug store, and numerous other busi
ness interests will be established be
fore the sruin er is over. A news
paper, :L So, is to be estiablished, and
this is a luxury which the citizens or
tlruniniiil have never before en
'A great boom is on in Drummond
and the people are just wakening up
to the fact that the town is in a logi
cal lecticn fcr the building up of a
big plc'. It thi' present interest and
itllusiasim keeps up Drutntiznd cc ill
be the most important place between
Deer Lodge, 35 miles distant, and Mis- !
saula. Its only rival at present is
Philipsburg, and. the rejuvenated
town promises to rival that point in
population within a few months, and
DIurmmmnond, eventually, wilL be the
county seat of Granite county. Drum
mond now has really three railroads,
and the new part of the town is es
pecially favored, having ttio North
ern Pacific on the north of it, the
Philipsburg branch on the east and
the Milwaukee on the south.
Surrounding Country.
"The country surrounding Drum
mond is as level as a floor and mag
niflwently watered. The climate is
ideal. Surrounding Drummond there
are a number of magnificent ranches, I
producing nearly everything that I1
grown anywhere, and for some time 1
particular attention has lean paid to e
fruit raising, with excellent results.
"Grasping the possibilities of the
future, several of the larger ranches
have recently been purchased by cold
talists who will cut them up into I
smaller farms. For instance, the Blair <
ranch, a short distance north of s
Drummond, has been sold by MR. Def. I
Smith, formerly of Anaconda, but now
of Missouia, and it will be colonir.d. i
Joseph Grenier of Missoula recently r
sold the Colonel G. W. Morse ranch of t
several thousand acres to a Portland
syndicate, the price paid being $25 an
acre. This property also will be 'eol
Developing Coal.
"In addition to its agricutituralw re
sources that portion of Granite coun
ty immediately surroundhig Drum
mood is developing som e important
coal mines. A coal expert whomn I
met while n Drummond stated to ie
that the whole country surrouinding
the town was underlaid with coklof A
very superior quality. The productt l
bituminous, very hard, and highly
volatile. It is said to be excellenit
for steaming and dorlestie purpoya.
At the present time Con Kohrd, kidk
Ilielenborg and James Murray are de
voloping a 15-foot vein. The property
is within view of the town. *ortti
oast of the town Mr. Turner his
opened into two veins each four ,feet
wide, and is now taking out quite
a heavy tonnage of fine coal.
"Drummond is certainly on the
hoom, and is in line to become one
of the most important towns in the
state. Its railroad facilities are
hound to bring it to the front, .hd
with the Puget Sound road aiding it
in its progress it will not be mani
months before it will have a popula
tion of 600 or 800."
