S-H. A. Van Horne received a sam
ple Racvycle from the Miami Cycle com
pany of Middleton, Ohio, Wednesday,
which wheel, together with the Olive
bicycle, he and Bob Allen will sell the
coming season. The R cycle "point,'
is that the bearings ar outside ,he
sprocket wheel and in th cran/bhubs,
thus doing away with ev ~r.rticle of
leverage and side pull, allowing the
chain to be run tight and thus saving
lost power, besides lessening the pres
sure on the bearings 27 per cent. The
Racycle is a beauty and we predict that
the boys will sell their share of high
grade bicycles. The Racycle may be
seen at T. W. Humphrey's.

has nothing to say about other coal
fields, but is still enthusiastic over his
own, which he says will be the best
outside of Colorado. Like all Billings
men, Mr. Gallaher sings its praises in
a key pitched to the highest point. The
Billings man is as breezy and refresh
ing as the first breath of spring; he
cqmes with new notes of melody and in
his eye hope sparkles like a diamond in
an engagement ring.
Four Vagrants Will Diet After Refusing
to Work.
Out of the number of vagr ts sent
enced Monday to work on he streets
five days, four are langui ing in the
city quay on a diet of bre d and water,
after having refused to work. Their
sentence imposed upc them a duty
which they have never been known to
perform and so they ebelled, but until
they give the city yve days' labor on
the streets they wvill continue to eat
bread and drink water. City Marshal
Bond will take them before Police
Judge Mann this afternoon to be re
sentenced and after the authorities have
finished with the vags they..will prob
ably come to time.

A Liv y Contest Promised for Next Mon
day-The Registration;
he time for filing nominations of
adidates for city offices closed this
afternoon, the names of the aspirants
being published in our advertising col
umns. The election occurs next Mon
day and as the day approaches consider
able interest is being manifested, es.
pecially in the contest for mayor. Mr.
Yegen, it would seem, has the best of
the situation, as he is the only south
side candidate, and the vote on the
north side will be divided between
Mayor Smith and Dr. Rinehart. It is
not thought, however, that Mr. Yegen
will have a walkover and the result of
the mayoralty contest will remain in
doubt until the votes are counted.
The fight for police magistrate is still
more complicated, there being six can
didates in the field, and it would re
quire rare political sagacity to name
the order in which they will come
under the wire. Five of them are
bound to be left, however, unless there
is a tie vote, and the laugh therefore
will be distributed against those defeat
ed; a single candidate will not have to
bear the burden.
The contest for city treasurer is go
ing to be a very close one. H. V.
Bailey and Hugh Evans, the two can
didates, are both competent and popu
lar and are now believed to be running
neck and neck. The city's strong-box
will be safe whichever wins, and the
finish will be watched with interest.
Aldermanic contests have developed
in the Second and Fourth wards. In
the former, Geo. W. Robbins is out
against H. F. Clement, while in the
Fourth, which elects two, Alderman
Szitnick, F. R. St. John and J. W. Ap
pleman are in the field. Geo. F. Ben
nighoff has no opposition in the First
and in the Third Grant Lamport has
retired in favor of U. E. Frizelle.
Registration closed yesterday after
noon at 5 o'clock. The total number
registered, as reported by the agent for
publication, is 483, divided as follows:
First ward, 115; Second, 124; Third,
92: Fourth, 152.
The voting places are as follows:
First ward, court house; Second ward,
Allen's lumber office; Third ward,
Boykin house; Fourth ward. ,vwarehouse

Very truly yours,
The Home Talent Production Attracted a
Large Audience.
,Abirge audience assembled at the
Billings opera house last evening to
hear home talent present "Neighbor
Jackwood," and those in attendance
certainly got the full worth of their
moneys the play began at 8:80 and
lasted for four hours and fifteen min
utes, or until 12:45 a. m. And then a
half-dozen of the twenty-five scenes
described in the synopsis were omit
ted; it would have taken fully an hour
longer if these had also been presented.
The curtain went down after each
scene, which practically made the play
one of twenty-five acts, and never, in
the history of the drama in Billings,
has so much play been presented for so
little money. The audience, however,
enjoyed the production, Miss Nickey
and Walk being presented with hand
some bouquets during the evening in
recognition of their histrionic talent,
while along about the eighteenth scene
an immense bouquet of vegetables, con
sisting of turnips, potatoes, cabbages
and onions (hinc illae lacrimae) was
passed up to the stage as a testimonial
of the merits of the entire company.
This expression of approval virtually
brought down the house with applause
and the actors, no doubt, felt relieved
that the vegetables were passed up in a
quiet and decorous manner instead of
being thrown upon the stage by the au
However, some of the performers
showed real dramatic ability, but it
would be unfair to thention one with
out naming all who took part, and The
Gazette desires to distribute the honors
equally. It is of the opinion, though,
that the play would have been better
appreciated if it had been commenced
in the middle of the afternoon or its
production spread over two evenings;
it was altogether too much of a good
thing for a single sitting. But the
presentation of "Neighbor Jackwood"
will be remembered in Billings; it de
veloped the fact that this city, which is
never behind in anything, possesses as
much histrionic talent as any town in
the state.
Yet Lives to Tell the Story-A. G. Hooley
Visits Billings.
A. G. Hooley of Grand Forks, N. D.,
well known here, has been in Billings
for several days on business.
Mr. Hooley bear the dis ' tion of
being a man who as d his back
broken but yet lives, \v6ich is the only
incident of its kind know . Several
years ago, in New he was
thrown from a horse, meeting with the
injury above stated and his escape from
death is certainly a miracle. He is en
joying good health now and gives no
appearance of ever having been injured.
