There \\'ill lb Maun.y At trt' live Fe;ito I'VS. S ur of dirictors ,f the Yel lowstonu( County Fair association have sit Stteptauher 12, 1.', 14 and 15 as the days for the 18)99 fair meeting. Thi is was decided upon at a meeting of the directors Saturdtv. The fair last yuear was not held until the latter part of September. The change this year was brought about by reason of wishing to get the race horses which will be at the Big Timber race meeting the .latter part of this month. Secretary O'Don nell has received word that Big Timber will have between twenty and thirty horses in readiness for our fair, which will insure some splendid races. The directors will put up nearly $1,000 in premiums and race purses. Although no special features have been provided for as yet, the directors promise us that everything will be done to make it the rrowuing event in the history of Yel. lowstone county fairs. The fruit, vegetable and grain ex hibit will probably outrival all former attempts. An effort will be made to have the largest representation of Crow Indians that have ever assembled in Billings. This has always been a good drawing card for the fair. It is also likely that a series of ball games may be arranged for two or more days. From now on the 'directors will meet quite often to shape the work for the coming fair and the interest which is already being manifested betokens a grand event. ('O)1NCII. ME~ETS TONIGIIHT. Onmmittee to .Report on Saloon-Cloilng Pettitll--Other Mattern. The -city council will meet in regular monthly session tonight at the fire hall. The Brst meeting in the month is al ways the most important one and the aldermen will liad it so tonight, there being several matters of importanoe to come before the body. The committee appointed at the last m'eeting to report qpon the petition asking that 'btBe saloons be closed from 12 o'clock .eaoh night until 6 a. an,, and all day Sunday, will make'its 're port, which will, without doubt. be against the prayer of the petitioners.' This matter, when called up in the meeting, will probably produce con siderable disoussion, which will be un teresting. Another matter of no less importance is that of allowing liquor to be sold in the houses of ill-repute, and it is Ihkely that the council will instruct the city treasurer to collect a city liquor license from those houses. A question similar to this has risen before, but the keepers of the houses have contended that they pay a license for catrying on their business and can not or should not be made to pay a liquor license, but the present council thinks otherwise and will put it to a test. Liquor is known to be sold in large quantities in the proscribed district and the city reaps no revenue from it. The houses will be made to pay the regular city license ot $50 per quarter or will be compelled to stop selling liquor. Each house will be treated alike, all being called upon to put up or shut up. It is barely possible that a report may be made by the committee into whose hands was placed the petition of W. B. George, solme three mouths, ago, for a franchise for an electric street-car line. Either the committee has over. looked the matter or it has found a resting place in the pigeon-hole of some alderman's desk. Mr. (;eorge says the council treats his petition like childs play, but he says it is nothing of the kind and that he may"call the turn on" the aldermen one of these fine days as Billings advances in growth so rapidly. Let us hope he may. Together with these nmatters will come an unusually big pile of papers, which are known as bills. Each one must have the 0. K. of some officer, besides those of the auditing commit. tee. Among these will be one of $800 for the new street sprinkler purchased by the city. IlTIN(IU4IHICD VINITOIN. Prtly frout Nebraska and NMurldan Mest Coangrstlonal Party Hera. A special trami of three oars, com. prisingu a dining oar, a Pullmau sleeper and she private oar No. loi of Oeo. W. Holdirege, general maanager of the Bur. lingtoU railroad, arrived in the oialy Friday evenlog, having on board Mr, Boldredge and his iaesM, United States Senator M. L. Hayward, Oou. gressman E. J. Burkett of Nebraska, Captain Palmner of Omaha. besides Lieutenant C. McK. Saltzman of the First United States cavalry. stationed at Sheridan, Mayor Chas. Lewis of Sheridan, Alderman S. D. Canfield and Superintendent E. E. Gillette of the Burlington surveying corps. The oica sjion of the visit was that the party had come hero to meet the congressional delegation which was returning from it junketing trip to Alaska, and act as an escort for them to Sheridan, where they were to inspect the military post. As the train did not arrive until late and it was not known until somei time after that the party was in the city. no attempt was made to entertain thnem at the club or show them about the city. The Uazetto reporter, who enjoys i personal acquaintance with Congress man Burkett, called on the gentl.thila it his air ini the ntilint gtoni yards fidl( met thlie inieibors (if the party. All had a good word to say for Billings, being wonderfully impressed with our city's marked activity. Senator Hay. ward remarked that he could not see how one could fail to like this country when we had sunch a delightful climate, whiich soouled to voice the sentimnluts of all. Saturday morning the congressional party arrived, composed of the follow ing gentlemen: Congressman Hull, who is chairman of the committee on military affairs; Congressmen Payne and Young of New York, Dalzell of Pennsylvania, Warner of Illinois. Heat wole of Minnesota and Colonel Steele of Indiana, who came direct from nt tour through the National park. Their car was attached to Mr. Holdr.ege's train, which left here as a special for Sheridan, where a stop was made until evening, when the party was to con tinue its journey homeward. A HItS WOOl. SALE. Th e %ge Creek Sheep (Comipaniy SeliN at. (;reat Falla. The Sage Creek Sheep company of Utica, Fergus county, on Friday made the best sale that has been made in the Great Falls wool market this season, and also, it is believed, better than any wade last year. Its clip did not bring an unusually high price per pound. but the weight of each fleece was so great that the amount per head was larger than has been realized on any other clip. There was about 220,0O0 pounds and out of seven bids offered three were a tie at 18, oents and the parties agreed to divide the clip at that price. The fleeces were exceptionally heavy for this year, 27,000 of them running over eight pounds. The Sage Creek Sheep company con sists of L. H. Hammond, who has active management, and Rev. Jacob Mills of this city. About sixteen years ago the company was started by Stoutenburgh, Hamilton and Barney, with 1,000 sheep and no working cap. }al. Stoutenburgh afterward sold ;ft to Rev. Mills and Barney to Mr. Hamilton. It is now one of the wealthiest sheep outfits in the state and so carefui and skilled is its man agenment that .each year the buyers are eager for the clip to come in, knowing that it will be a good one.

Helena Won Them Both, but Had to Work to Do It. BAD TEAM WORK DID IT liili ilnnched lHer Errors. iui (ol Iattled ll h--1Iisirrieefll Rolwdy i~lil 4)1i the Fiel Billingiis had another virul.ot attack of baseblinll enithusiasml on Saturday and Snulday, about 700 people turning out to see the first gaIIIIo with Helena. ind nearly 1,000 spectators being pres ciut on Sunday. notwithstanding i threatened rain storm.n which no doubt kept ninny aw'ay. And the people saw two good games anud are still enthusi astic, veon though Billings did lose. She cannlliot expect to win every game and, as said by The Gazotte last Fri d(ay, the home club had not yet been pitted against a real ball team, But Hillings was up against it good and bard with Helenia and, considering the lack of practice and almost utter ab soltee of teamn work on the part of the home club, it did remarkably well to hloll the champions from the capital down to two close games. They dem ounstrated that Helena has the best club on account of its team work and con* staut practice; the individual playing of the visitors was little or no better than that of the Billings boys. But the champions played steady ball and did not get rattled, outfielding their opponents and proving to be superior base runners. However, they had to work very hard to win, notwithstnnd. ing that they had strengthened their team by the addition of Butte's best pitcher, Anaconda's crack infielder and various other players from different points of the compass. But Billings did the same thing and has no kick coming ion that score. She was out played by Helena; the capital has the best club on account of the practice it has had and its team work. And if Billings expects to play winning ball with such teams her club must practice constantly, study the points of the game closer and get down to team work. Otherwise she will have to drop back to the Miles City class of ball playing and admit that the com pany of the western Montana clubs is too fast for this town. Tihe First Gamnie. For five innings and a half it was as pretty an exhibition of ball playing as one cared to see, the score standing 2 to 1 at that time in favor of Billings. None of the runs had been earned' and the safe hits had not been plentiful, but both teams had been hitting the ball and the fielders had had plenty to do. The strikeouts had been few, yet both pitchers were doing good work, especially McNeeley for the holme team. The visitors, while they hit the ball, either knocked it into the air or hit short grounders to the infield, and to a greater or less extent the home team did the same thing. The few errors made up to this time had been almost excusable, too, but in the last half of the sixth inning the Billings boys went to pieces and off of but one safe hit, allowed the visitors to score four unearned runs. That settled the game; Billings had bunched most of .-q THE - Linton Clothing Co. - CLOTHING AND F.hNISHING8 Everything of the Latest and Nobbiest for Men's Wear. HRTS AND CRPS BOOTS RND SHOES The Best Selected Stock in all Eastern Montana. The Linton Clothing, 99. her errors in this one inning, but left a few for the eighth, when she allowed the visitors to score two more unearned runs, the only earned run of the game being nade~ in the ninth on a three. bagger by Hines and a single by Wells. The hits, it will he observed by the score, were six and six, but Billings had made eight errors while Helena had made but two; that tells the tale. Billings would have won the game if MeNeeley had been properly supported, but the team had not had sufficient practice and could not give it to him. The main features of the game were Flannery's fielding at third base and his beautiful single in the fifth, bring ing in two runs; Scott's work in left field, Catcher Freeman's throwing to bases and the pretty work of Helena's second and third basemen and short stop. The visitors had won through their superior fielding and were en titled to the victory, although, as the Helena Ilnpendeunt well said, they had to work like hired men to do it.

Billings opened it by pounding out three runs in the first inning, two of which were earned, whitewashing Helena in her half and again in the second. Then Helena earned a run in the third by lucky hitting and good base running, repeating the perform ance in the fifth. Billings had drawn blanks in the second, third and fourth innings, but in her half of the fifth also earned a run and the score was 4 to 2 in her favor. Bcth sides were retired without scoring in the sixth, Billings also being shut out in her half of the seventh, and up to this point the game was a prettier one than that of Saturday. The fielding bhad been sharp on both sides, the game had been al most errorless and Billings had been hitting the ball hard and often. Har ker was pitching in good form and getting good support and while the same could be said of Ryan, he was being hit more freely. Then the ex pected happened. Billings went to pieces in the last half of the seventh, bunched her errors again and Helena (:Co|ntinaued onI Fourth Page,
