SOULI, AGaNT, HELENA VS. BILLINGS Champions from the Capital Will Tackle the Magic City for Two Games. BOTH TEAMS STRONG And Bringiung New Men floni Butte. The Home Boys ('oltident of Victory. The Billings baseball team is all ready for the games with the cham pions from Helena tomorrow and Sun day and much interest is manifested in the contests. Manager Nix realizes that his team is going against the real thing when it tackles Helena, but says that he is not afraid of the outcome. The players of the Billings team, too, are confident, although they also re alize they must play good ball to win. They say they are going to take both games from the visitors. Both teams are strengthening them selves for the games. The Helena club will bring along St. Varin, a Butte pitcher, and it is said has secured other new players for the Billings series, which shows that the Helenaites are not figuring on a walkover. They are bringing along the very best men they can get and if Billings wins she will have the honor of beating the best ball players that can be gotten together in one team in the state. The home team has been strengthened by the addition of MoNeeley and Flannary, who ar rived from Butte this nmornigy. The former is the pitcher who won the game against Helena two weeks ago by a score of 7 to 1, but was knocked out of the box at Butte last Sunday by the Butte & Boston team. That was on account of him getting poor support in the field, however, and all good pitch ers occasionally have an off day. Hel ena was trying to secure him for the Billings games, but Manager Nix "saw him first." MoNeeley thinks he can hold Helena down to seven or eight hits, anyhow, and if he does that Bill ings is almost sure to win. Flannery, the other Butte man, will play third base. He lives in Butte and is said to be one of the best all-around players In the state. The lineup of the Billings team will probably read like this, but the batting order has not yet been ar ranged : Hines, catcher. McNeeley and Harker, pitchers. Harrity, first base. Rose, second base. Flannery, third base. Smith, short-stop. Scott, left field. Freeman, center field. Wells, right field. Taylor, Sheehan, Calhoun, substi tutes. The games will be called promptly at 8:80 each afternoon and the attend ance will be large. Everybody is "pulling" for Billings to win, but the people who understand baseball realize that the Helena boys have had the most practice. They have only lost three games during the season, but, like the Billings team, they have been playing weak clubs with the exception of Butte, to whom Helena has dropped three games. The visitors will arrive in the morning and will be accom panied by a crowd of sports and root ers. The former will back their fa vorites with their money, too, and will probably give odds of about 2 to 1, or at least 3 to 2. Billings sports will likely accommodate the visitors who want to bet at these figures, but do not feel like laying even money. The games are going to be the most hotly contested ever played in Billings and the enthusiasm is at a high pitch. Bozeman Chronicle: Colonel Sam Gordon has again met with one of those disasters which occasionally over. take him and make life a miserable ex. istence for a few months. The Miles City hall team has again been badly skinned by an aggregation at Billings. Nothing is so painful to the genial col onel as this. Defeat from any other town could be lived down. But even in this dire calamity he finds one gleam to gloat over, He says that the Bill ings ball tossers are all hired men and that when nightfall comes they have no place to lay their heads, and are obliged to seek shelter wherever they may And it, thus accentuating the taot that they are strangers in a strange land, in making out the batting averages of the home team, published last Tues. day, Scorer MoParlin inadvertently omitted the name of Captain Taylor, whose average was ,870 int ve games played, That is a splendid average for a pitcher and if It could be kept up against strong teams would lInd any playe In the national laeague Just for hi. aick work. o e e A gentleman who came up from Miles City this week says the hall fans down there are betting 2 to 1 that Hel ena will beat Billings. They can get some of their money covered here if they wish to speculate on that basis. On account of the rain yesterday afternoon the team did not get out to practice, but will be out today. The boys have been practicing steadily since the Miles City games and will show up tomorrow in much better form. They still lack team work, however, and depend on their batting to pull them nout of any hole they may get into. It will come pretty near do ing it against Helena, too. THE IRRIGATION CONGRESS. Chairmun O'Donnell Nays Much. Inlterest Is Being Taken in It. I. D. O'Dounell, manager of the Minnesota & Montana Land & Iin provement company returned Wedncrs day morning from Helena, where he and C. A. Dewar had been in the in terest of the company in its suit in the United States district court against the city of Billings to prevent the sale of the company's city lots for the improve. ment district taxes. The testimony of the company's witnesses was taken be. fore ex-Chief Justice Blake, who had been appointed examiner, and the testi mony of the witnesses for the city will be taken in about twenty days. When asked it there were any new developments about the lawsuit, Mr. O'Donnell said: "No, the examination was very tame, and the lawyers were unusually courteous, owing probably to their small audience. I took advautage of my trip west to do some quiet booming of the National Irrigation congress, which meets at Missoula on September 25, and found considerable interest in the congress among the people I met. Engineer Fortiner of the arid land com mission is taking great interest in the meeting and will attend. " "What are the prospects for the Mis soula meeting?" "Very favorable, both in regard to the number of delegates and to the prominence and influence of the gentle men who have promised to attend. As chairman of the executive committee the duty has devolved upon me of writ ing a great many personal letters to men of prominence in both national and state affairs urging their attend ance and co-operation, and from the re plies received I should think the Mis soula meeting will be a good one. Here is another lot of letters which I am just sending off, about eighty, and they are to agricultural college pro fessors, engineers and scientists, and the addresses run from New Mexico to as far north as the Canadian north west. " "Do the people of the east evince much interest in the subject?" "Not so much as we hope to see when they become better informed with regard to the needs and desires of 'Arid America,' but it would surprise you to see some of the letters I have received, even from Wall street men, who are popularly supposed to use water only in connection with stocks. Men connect ed with the administration are taking a lively interest in the matter, and sev eral of the departments will send sea eral representatives to Missoula. Irri gation is becoming to be recognized as an 'issue,' the same as silver or tariff, and cabinet officers and representatives are waking up to the necessity of study ing the situation. When once the west unites in its demands we will come pretty near obtaining the concessions I we ask for, and the irrigation congress, I made up as it is largely of representa tive western men, is just the body to 1 define our wants and bring them prominently before congress and the I administration." "What are the principal demands formulated by the irrigation congress, so far?" "The creation of a division of irriga tion in the department of agriculture; the extension of the work of irrigation investigation already made by the agri cultural experiment stations: federal storage reservoirs; the leasing of the public grazing lands, subject to right of reolamation by irrigation and of settle. ment on lands actually cultivated; in other words, subject to the United States land laws, and the public con trol of the water supply, or as expressed at the Lincoln meeting: 'We believe that the water of all streams should forever remain public property, and that the right to its use should inhere, not in the individual or the ditch, but in the land reclaimed,' " "What kind of a building rill the high school board build?" "I'll see you about that later." ANOTUH5K OSNM, ,. mW.

OF 400,000 POUNDS Which Went to Silberman Bros. of Chicago-Clip of Fine Mced loin Quality. The Thos. Cruse wool clip, the lar gest that comes to Billings, was sold this afternoon to Silberman Bros. of Chicago by Win. Cruse of Helena. The clip, which is a fine medium quality, consists of 400,000 pounds and from what we learned, the price is the best paid in Montana this year. Mr. Cruse got the price he wanted, so he says, and Mr. Guthrie. the representative who bought the wool, seems to be satis fled with his purchase even at so ad vanced a price. Silberman Bros. have secured the following consignments since our last report: A. W. Stanton, 45,000 pounds. A. C. Newton, 10,000 pounds. The clip of John Burns, reported Tuesday as a sale, was also a consign ment. The eastern wool buyers, before leav ing this week, presented H. N. Ken nedy, the accommodating local agent of the Northern Pacific Railway com pany, with a check for $25, the follow ing note of explanation being enclosed: "The boys enclose this small check to show you that we appreciate your kindness in helping us in all ways in your power, and the hard work you have put in to keep things running right this season.

Kennedy entertained about fifty lady friends Tuesday after. noon in honor of her guest, Mrs. G. H. 4 Wells of Livingston. The rooms were tastefully decorated with bouquets of sweet peas and nasturtiums. The after noon was pleasantly spent in playing domino whist, a game which, although a new one, proved interesting and pleasing. A series of ten games was played, at the close of which a hand some china teapot was awarded to Mrs. Connop, who had the greatest number of markings to her credit. Mrs. Bair and Mrs. Forester both having the n same markings, drew for the second t prize, a pretty hand-painted cup and saacer, Mrs. Bair being successful. After the conclusion of the games the tables were covered with dainty em broidered lunch cloths and refresh ments were served, consisting of ices and cake. Miss Whaley and Miss ii Platt assisted Mrs. Kennedy in receiv- e ing and entertaining. Miss Chapple a took several snap-shots of the ladies, I grouping them on the lawn. The a afternoon was an entire success, Mrs. v Kennedy being a very pleasant hostess, a who entertains her guests in a manner r pleasing to all. Those invited were: V ! Linton Clothing Co.

FREI) TEWM MAKEK A ,JUMP. Squatt on Menator (irnwell's Claim. Ousting Proceedlags Begun. State Senator C. O. Gruwell, through his attorneys, W. M. Johnston and O. F. Goddard, has commencud proceed. ings to eject Fred Tews, a former night policeman of this city, who recently jumped or squatted on the ranch of the former near. Junction. The ranch in question in an unsurveyed section of railroad land which Mr. Gruwell took up six years ago. He has made some extensive improvements on it, building a house and outbuildings, besides fenc ing with wire the entire area, and has been cutting the hay from it each year. Last year he got a lease on the land from the owners, the Northern Pacific Railway company. The ranch was jumped a year ago by Claud SBiith, but at the April term of the district court Mr. Gruwell secured a decree ousting him and it is likely that Tews will meet a similar fate.

Yested an Irishman named Murray in one of the north side saloons last night, on suspicion of having stolen some bar. ness which he disposed of yesterday to. some half-breed freighters.

Murray is held in the meantime until the owner of the harness can be found to testify against him, PREPARING FOR THE FAIR.
