The Ogden ball club, which came to Helena last week to play a series of four games, will return home with the full knowledge that they ran up against the real thing in the capital city. Ogden had what was termed a cracker. jack teem, but it seems Helena went themn about one better, for the state capital boys politely and scientifically took three straights from their visitors and the last gatne is to be played this afternooun. In the first game the score was 12 to 7. St. Vraiu pitched for Helena iand did excellent work, striking out eleven of the sluggers. In the seiiond game Helena was in the rear until the ninth inning, when the boys pulled themselves out of the hole by bringing in four scores, The score was 11 to f. Huusford, who pitched for thi Brooklyn's in the lhague last year, was in the box for cA)gden. Up to this fifth inning the Helena boys were afraid of him, but after that they fell on him for the eleven scores inade. It is reported that McNeely pitched yes tcrday's genie for Helena, which result. ed in a victory for the state capital boys by a score of 11 to 7. The Auncondu and Butte & Boston teams contested on the fortner's die oonud Sunday, resulting in a victory for the latter by a score of 12 to 8. Zlearfos and Buckley was the battery for the victors. * *. N The Missoula team went over to Butte Saturday to play two games with the Boston & Moutaun boys, but after one game bad been finished the former decided they did not care to have any thing more to do with the B. & M's. No wonder. The Missoula boys only scored one run twhile their opponents ran bases until they were tired out, making 2. scores, The Butte players say it was a rotten exhibition on the part of the visitors. The second game was called off. I it is the intention of Manager Nix of the homre club to strengthen his team and put the boys to pritetinlug right away, and our people are promised fint exhibitions of the national game during the next two mouths. The club will make a tour of the state, playing Heleua, Butte and Anaconda, and these temuis will most likely play re turn games here. A anle was played, at Canyon creek Sunday between the club of that seo. tion and nue fromn Laurel. Several of the Billings boys were present and as. sisted Canyon creek. Taylor and Temple pitched, while Hines caught, The score was ill to 17 in favor of Can. you creek. The Laurelites were shut ut for about six innings when their opponents took pity on them and let them score to the above extent. CORIONE.R' ,IJURI Ilnvlstiatcs the death of a MWtralnger at P. nt, Wulth's liverry stble, A man, comparatively a stranger in Billings, died in one of the box stalls of P. H. Smith's livery stable Saturday evening, from what was first supposed to be a case of poisoning, but later de. velopments proved it to be an acute attack of congestion of the lungs. The Imran callie into the barn and went into the stall, when he was noticed to be in a sickly condition by the employea, who immediately sent word to the county physician, Dr. Townsend, but before that person's arrival the man had died. hleing the county ;oroner also, Dr. Townsend ordered the body removed to the morgue, where a post morteml ex a.mination was madetl, its a box of s.avai lin, a prepalation to keep lice from one's person, was found in his clothing and part of it had either been taken internilly or used in some manuner, and it was thought that it had caused his death. Dr. Townsend was assisted in the examination by Pr. Armstrong. The doctors found that the lungs were conuested, which showed that the first stage of pneumonial had set in.

Mr. Convery was arrested about: ten days ago by United States Deputy Mar. shal Sam Jackson. and gave bond far his appearance in this city on August 5. He retained O. F. Goddard to defend him while J. C. English of Helena, as sistant United States prosecuting attorney, was here to prosecute the case. A. Campbell, sub-agent at Pryor creek, and three of his charges, Old Elk, The Other Bull and Red Star, were wit nesses in the case. ' Henry Russell, an interpreter, was present, and spoke for the :Indians. The bottle and its con tents, supposed to be whisky, which the Indians claimed Convery sold them, was brought into court. The Indians told how they had gone into Convery's and asked for something to drink and the bottle and contents was what he gave them. They could not testify whether or not it was whisky and those who did sample it in the court room say it was a very poor brand of whisky, if such it was at all. After hearing the evidence Justice Fraser decided that it was insufficient to hind Convery over to the United States federal court and he was accord, ingly released and went home, with his wife and child, a happy man. Attorney English, as well as Marshal Jackson, felt indignant that he was not bound over' and the former said that the matter would probably be brought be fore the attention of the United States grand jury. Convery had been suns pected for some time of having sold liquor to the Indians, but this was the first time the officers had been able to get any evidence against him. "LON(i TOM" ESCAPEN. IBut. |i Ca(pturled After a Sliort Freedom by Jsller Hardinlg. Tom Williams, known as "Long Tom," who was sent up last week by Justice Fraser for 90 days, caused the county and city officers no end of trouble yesterday afternoon. "Lonug Tom" gets his nick name by reason of his height, which is t feet and 5 inches. He is about as slick and wily as he is long and he has an unenviable reputation for being tough. Yesterday afternoon,when it began tc rain, Jailer Harding went out into the jail yard to bring in the bunk blankets. He returned and left the jail door un looked while he put the blankets in a closet in one of the corridors and ii was while doing this that Williams quietly took French leave. The whole proceedings did not take over a couple of minutes, but Williams disappeared as though he had been swallowed ur by the earth. Jailer Harding thought he might be hiding around the Burling. ton freight cars, but a search revealed him not, A 'phone message was thel sent down to the police department to keep their eyes open for him. Willard Baker started out on a hunt and near the brewery building he ran across ' Long Tom," He went up to arrest the man, when he was hit a crack on the head by the long slim arm and fist of the escaped prisoner. Baker then brought his revolver into use and matrohed Williams up street, turning him over to Ben Radolifl, who brought him to the sheriff's office where he was left in custody of Janitor Battles until Jailer Harding should arrive. "Long Tom" was thirsty and asked for a drink. Mr. Battles went to get it, when the slick individual again escaped through the open window. When Jailer Hard ing arrived a search was instituted and "Long Tonm" was found biding in the basement of Losekaump's store, He gave up without any resistance and was soon placed in his formur cell, where he will be more carefully watuched hereafter.

Babcock and wife of Butte are visiting Mrs. Babcock's sister, Mrs. L. H. Parker of this city. Mr. Babcock is one of the Montana's wounded heroes from Manila, having come in contact with a Mauser bullet in one of the early engagements of the insurgent war, which necessitates the use of crutches, and which will inca pacitate him for work at his trade for a long time. He arrived in San Fran cisco about a month ago, where he received an honorable discharge on ac count of disability. Mr. Babcock is an old friend of many of our prominent citizens, having been acquainted with County Clerk Carwile, City Treasurer Evans, J. W. Fish, H. S. Williston, T. J. Bouton, R. L. Nix and others in Buffalo, Wyo., where he formerly resided. He tells an interest ing story of the trip across the Pacific, and the numerous fights in which the Montana boys were engaged, and may be induced to give a public recital of their experiences some evening the latter part of the week. While Mr. Babcock makes no pretentions of being a public speaker he is an entertaining talker, and we have no doubt but what our citizens would greatly enjoy listen ing to his narrative. At the request of many of his friends he gave a lecture in the auditorium in Butte, which was largely attended and very much appreciated by the audience. If Mr. Babcock can be prevailed upon to tell his story, announcement of the time and place will be made later in the week. QUENTION OF LEGALITY. Mr. Lehmllan Believe. Lewi~town Election Was Vold. Charles Lehman and other residents of Lewistown are disposed to raise a question as to the legality of the recent election by which that town assumed the dignity of an incorporated city. Mr. Lehman has written to Attorney General Nolan stating that it had been discoverea that about forty persons voted in the election who had no right to vote, having acquired residences out side of the town while proving up on government lands. The city voted to incorporate by ia majority of only 22 votes in favor of the proposition, and Mr. Lehman asks if the election were valid. The attorney general says that the question was one which the courts alone will decide. If it were known that a sufficient number of the votes in question had been cast in favor of the proposition to have carried it, then a contest could be brought in court and if the fact were proven would doubtless be sustained. But how the effect of the votes can be determined is a pertinent question that would seem to be hard to answer. NEWMPAPER FOlt CODY. It I to He Called The Enterprise and will Appear In Two Week., J. H. Peake, an experienced journal. ist of Washiugton,D. C., and an old. time friend of Buffalo Bill, arrived in the city today en route to Cody, Wyo., to establish a newspaper, says the Red Lodge Picket. The plant will reach Red Lodge in a day or two, and Mr. Peake expects to get out the first Issue about Aug. 80. It will be called The Cody Enterprise and is to be a seven. column, four page paper, with all home print. Independent, with democratic tendencies, will be the new paper's politics. Mr. Peake's wife and daugh ter are now in the basin country with the Cody party. : ~ TH4E4 Linton Clothing Co.] CIOTHJING AND FUNI8HING$ Everything of the Latei.t and Nobbiewt for Mon's Wear, S HTS RND CXPS BOOTS RND SHQoS 'IThu BA.t Wsleated Stouk in all aEucrn SMontana, The Linton Clothing iswwwwwwww-.ww ww wwww MIUST RE DIPPED State Veterinarians Receive New Orders from Agricultural Departmept. State Veterinarian M. E. Knowles has received from the agricultural de partment an order requiring that sheep shipped from one state to another must be dipped in an approved preparation. The circular is of importance. It fol lows: "It is ordered, That from and after August 10,1899, no sheep affected with scabies, and no sheep which have been in contact with others so affected, shall be allowed shipment from one state or territory into another, or from any state into the District of Columbia, or from said district into any state, unless said sheep shall have first been dipped in a mixture approved by this depart ment. "The dips now approved are: "1. The tobacco and sulphur dip, made with sufficient extract of tobacco to give a mixture containing no less than five one-hundreths of one per cent of nicotine and two per cent of flowers of sulphur. "2. The lime and sulphur dip, made with eight pounds of unslaeked lime and twenty-four pounds of flowers of sulphur to 100 gallons of water. The lime and sulphur should be boiled together for not less than two hours, and all sediment allowed to subside be fore the liquid is placed in the dipping vat. "The owner of the sheep is privi leged to choose which one of the above mentioned dips should be used for his animals. The department will Instruct inspectors to enforce due care in dipping sheep, but it assumes no responsibility for loss or damage to such animals, and persons who wish to avoid any risks that may be incident to dipping at the stock yards should see that their sheep are free from disease before they are shipped to market."

Russel is sending out the notifications to members of the Montana Buar association of the coming semi-annual meeting, which will be held next Tuesday, at which the lead ing subject to be discussed will be the celebration in due time of the centen nial anniversary of the day when John Marshall took his seat in the supreme court of the United States as the third chief justice.

An Error in Last Week's OCble Coneern ing Departure or Troops. Washington, Aug. 4. - General Otis today oabled the war department the following: Manila, Aug. 4.--Error in the cable of yesterday. Minnesota and South Dakota regiments take the transports, not Montana. The cable of yesterday caused con. siderable dissatisfaction in Minnesota, as it had previously been announced that the Minnesota regiment was to sail next. Inquiries from the war depart. ument developed the error, Several thousand railroad laborers are said to be badly needed in Idaho, where much new railroad work is in progress or is contemplated. There is also ia sorflity of railroad laborers in U tah.
