HELENA p Cowboys All Ready to Make the Capital City Oraoks Play Base Ball. A VERY FAST NINE Will Tackle Anything in the Wealt and Hold Its Owl--After the Peinant. The Billings ba nine, which she western Mo papers have named the Cowboys, is ready for business and will open a series of three games next Saturdy with Helena on the oapitl city grounds.' The Cowboys have been strengthenedi since the last issue of The Gazette by the acquisition of Flannery of Butte, who arrived here Monday morning. He is a very fast outfielder, a heavy batter and an all-round, heady player. Charlie Reilly, the crack third baseman of Kansas City will join the team here Thursday night to play shortstop, it being the intention to re lease Hansen,the Minneapolis shortstop. who is <o too fast company to hold up his end of the game. Scallan, the Min neapolis first baseman, was released yesterday and went home this morning. Rose has been elected captain and the lineup of the team will be as fol lows: Zearfross, catcher. MoNeeley, pitcher and first base. Harker, pitcher an base. Shorer, pitcher. Rose, secod .oe. Marshall, rd base. Reilly, shortstop. Scott, left field. Flannery, center field. Freeman, right field. The team will leave lot Helena Fri day night and be accompanied by a good-sized crowd of rooters-probably a dozen or more. The Northern Pacific, it is expected, will make a r of one fare for the round tripp anager Nix is still in Sea tie a is writing, at the bedside of a oi ster, and unless he returns by F ay morning N. G. Car wile will likely take charge of the team on its trip. From Helena thle Billings boys.expect to go to Pooatello, Ogden and'Salt Lake and may play a series with Butte and probably S.kane be fore their return home, .b.ut the 9th of September. The se teams will play return ga Billings and the people of this oiy will be treated to some very fast baRsball. The players of the home beam deblare that they will take three straight gamtes from Helena, but the backers of the nine will be sat isfied if they win two out of the three in each of the two series to be played. They are expected to do this, in fact, and also to get -a majority of the games with Butte, which would give Billings the penant as the ohampionu team of Montana. Very few of the players of th picked nine, which was to play the regulars last Sunday showed up, and a scrub game was played. The score was 26 to 8 in favor of the regulars. The team is practicing three hours a day and will be in good shape for the Hel ena games. At Butte last Saturday the Helenas defeated the reorganized Boston & Mon tana team by a score of 8 to 5. The score was 4 to 2 in favor of Butte up to the eighth inning, when Helena made six runs. The score shows that she had her usual luck, twelve hits and two errors wlnning, against fourteen hits and three errors for Butte. Ryan pitched for Helena and King and Mc. Donough for Butte. Butte won the Sunday game by a smcore of 1s to 10, knoaking St. Vrain out of the box in the sixth and seventh innings, Byan taking his place. Bel ena made fifteen hits and seven errors, against sixteen and five for Butte. The Billings Juniors played a game at Oanyon oreek last Sunday, defeating the farmers by a core of S0 to 19.

Senlator Carter Returns from Europe .and Talks a Bit. New York, Aug. 21.-United States Senator T. H. Carter of Montana, who was among several distinguished Amer. loans who arrived on the fog-belated American liner New York, said he never felt before so proud of returning to his. own country. "Travelers may talk as they like." be said ,"of the advantages abroad; as for me, I come back home fervently Ameri. can than ever. All you have to do to become fascilated with' this land is to go over and take a look at the foreign t places. "I am an administration man, and my relations with ex-SecrPtary Alger have always been pleasant, but I be lieve that Mr. Root.is competent and an able man for the place of secretary of war. "I am surprised to hear of the at tempted essassination of Labori. I I gathered while I was abroad that there vwould be some sort of a copipromise r verdict in the Dreyfus case. I believe that a failure to acquit may lead to a revolution in France. " CONGREGATIONAL MEETING.

Sunday evening, between the hours of 8 and 9 o'olock,while the wind storm was in progress, the two-story frame building being erected at the corner of Minnesota avenue and Thirtieth street south partially collapsed and had it not been for the small two-story residence on the east side, which served as a prop, the building would today be a to tal wreck. As it i a the structure was badly damaged and although it oan be repaired it will take nearly as long as though the job was commenced over again. The timbers were badly twisted and in the upper story the window frames, which had been put in, were also twisted, but nct a pane of glass was broken. The building was being 'ereoted for Thurson& Erilokson, who were to run a saloon on the lower floor and rent the upper for a lodging bonse.s, The work was being done by the day by Trubbs & Ward, and the Ios will there fore fall upon the owners. Many comments were beard durlog teoiemonP i~f the . oam trou teao , 'to the aeoeot that the btilding wai not belig put up a sasong as it .honld be apd sooner or latte it would collapse. Had it been lnspected by the clty engineer thee laso doubt but what he would have condemned it and either ordered work ,diseontinued or straonger ad heavier timbers und. The building bis altuated right on one ofthe main travel ed street-on the south side and is a anoace to the publio.

Batr Loses a Number o1 Valuable Animals from Dipping. SOLUTION TOO STRONG And It Affected Their Lungs and Stomalch-Nearly Fifty IDead anid ie It was first dead horses, but now ii1 is dond bucks, and their deaths wer caused from altogether different causes. Sunday morning 0. M. Bair, who bat re-engaged in the sheep bnsluesw, receiv. ed 150 bead of fine young Merino ouoke from Oregon. Phe animals were im. mediately taken in charge by Benry Struck, sheep luspiotor and deputy vet. eriuarian for Yellowstone county. Al. though the sheep were in a clean con* dition and,apparently free from all dis. ease of whatever kind, according to the state law, they had to be dipped. Thil Mr. Struck proceeded to do. Yesterday morning the boouks showed signs of sickness, some being in horrible agp.y. During the day five head died and of the total over 100 were sick. Mr. Bair did not know what to do for their relief, but the sheep were taused out on the grass near the fair grounds where they were permitted to graze. Only a few felt like grating, the others being too sick. At the request of Mr. Bair, Dr. A. Clark went out where the backs were and made an examination of one of the dead animals. He found the longs badly inflamed, and the lin ing of the stomhob peeled off when he scraped it, as though it had been cook. ed with some acid. Mr. Bait stated that he thought the dipping solution had been too strong an4 that the sheep had sniffed enough in their nostrils to cause their condition. Dr. Clark said that the sheep was an animal that could not withstand very muobch, and when told that Mr. Struck had used thirty gallons of carbolic acid to dip the 150 backs, he decided at once that the solution was altogetler too strong. He was also of the opinion that the chan. oes were decidedly againet any of the sick onep living, although they might linger on for a week or ten days. During last night twenty-five lore of the bucks died and today they are still dying. This forenoon Drs. Arm. strong and Townsend were called to see them. After an examination they ren* edred the same opinion as Dr. Clark, that death was caused by carbolic acid, stating that the dipping solution had been about I to 97, when it should have been 1 to 80: Mr. Bair's loss will be quite heavy, since the bucks were of a high grade and imported at a cost of about $15 a bead. MEN WA AT GEHO. Laborers and Minere Can Make $8 and N4 Per Day. Reliable news from Gebo is to the edect that the coal company there wants men, and. oan use twenty-five miners and laborers at once, who can make from $8 to $4- per day. The irders for coal are getting ahead of the company, whose main difficulty now is to secure labor. The people of Billings are glad to hear of the pros perity of Gebo and trust the coal com. pany will no longer be handicapped by eing.unable to get all the men needed. Linton Clothing Co. .

Helena IBuesiesus ouse Working for Its Fulfillment-Why Not B11llngr. A movement is on foot in Helena among tbe business men to close their stores at 6 o'clook in the evening on all week days excepting Saturday, when they will remain open until 10 o'clock, The stores are to remain.olosed all day Sunday. The merohants of Miles Oity have entered upon stob a work and it is said to'move along nicely. The Helena Independent in support of the movement sSay: The proposed agreement meets a popular demand that has existed for some time past. Its advocates argue that if all agree there will be no loss of business as a consequence and that the public will repdily grow accustomed to the departure and adapt itself with cheerfulness to the necessity of making its purohaes durlng business hours. In many of the large cities of the country the hours of businIes are aborter than in Helena and no colm. plaint. are ever heard. The result is that not only the merchants themselves but their armies 'of employes have a respite from thelr labors a few hours each day and are able to accomplish more when they are at work. Some of the business houses of the city now voluntarily observe the rule. The Gasette, during tile past fe* mouths, has repeatedly spoken of the importance of snob a movement among the,bsineuus men of0 Billijgs, bqt moth. ing has ever been done. A certaln firm, which employs a number of oelrks, has, on more than onn Qpsoilop, told The Gazette reporter that it would will. ingly al.se'irs store at 6 'o'clock each evening if the other firin would con. sent to do the same. It is theonilt that this is nor the only firm so inollned, but as long as one house holds back all the others will do likewise. A united efror.might. accomplish somethi. g and it is to be hoped that Billingl will soon see the fulfillment of the early.. closing movement of its stores. S1' WANt A DIV)ORCE. Mary Crelluhsw Wants to ,,iS separated from Her Husband. The Butte Miner of last Saturday contained the following, which may be of interest to many of our people, since the principals are well known here: Mary Orenshaw, in a, complaint filed with the leark of the district court yes. terday, shows that she An'd'' William Orenshaw were married on the 6th day of December, 1894, at the gity of Bill. lngs, Mont., but for, more than one year her husband has failed to provide her with the neoesuaries 'of lif and as a result she has been' compelled tojive upon the oharity of friends and reai. tives siotwithstanding,that her husband is in receipt of wages uftolient for their joint support. As a result Of the mar. riape there is now living one minor child'8 years of age. She asks that the bonds of matrimony be dissolved and that she be awarded the custody of the minor child.
