ER. 0. Nutt, assistant superintendent of the Burlington, was visiting among the boys in this city today. A Northern Pacific bridge near Grey aliff burned down Saturday night, causing a delay of about ten hours to the eastbound passenger train Sunday. B. J. Horn, superintendent and D.

M. Malone, the Montana reprepresentative of the Milwaukee, is in the city today. Pat Scaulan of the Milwaukee was here last week in the interest of his railroad, The Northern Pacific coal experts have discovered a vein of genuine an. thracite coal, but its location is kept a secret, The Northern Paolcti ntmnu's stn tion and coal bin aJ1e been changed from the east Iidlf Twenty-seventh street to the w lside in order to give more room for aho memorial library, The Northern Pacific is using Brid. ger coal on its trains out of this city. Itris claimed by those who know about it that the coal is the best ever used on the system and is far better than the Red Lodge, which the company has been using for years. It is reported that the Nor ern Pa. clfio is seribusly oonsideri the exten. sion of its Brid r bra to some point in the Big Hor b i, in Wyoming, with a view to dg off the contem plated extension of the Burlington. It may be a case of "bluff" on the part of each road. *' * * The railroads of the United States are at least 100,000 freight cars short today and each day makes the car famine more of a reality. The western lines are very bard pressed for "emp ties," Every available car is in use and none are kept on storage tracks longer than is absolutely necessary. Thursday morning's Northern Pa cile west-bound passenger was ini two sections. The first consiste /of the mail, express and baggag oars also the car of the United Stta fish com. mission, a priv te car. so the private oar of General Man er Kendrick of the Northern aoo railway, The second section w n unusually heavy one, nontaining two specially char. tered oars from Michigan filled with homeseekers going west. It was re. ported that one oar would stop at Liv. ingaton and that the other was bound I for Idaho. The Northern Pacific railway com. pany announces a rate of a fare and one fifth to Seattle on the oconsion ofi the W. ,C T. U. convention held in that city on the 17th to the 26th of October inclusive. Th.e rates will be given regardles of attendance. Those who attend from the city will secure i eoeipts for the money paid for tickets, at the place of meeting the return ticket for one fifth fare will be issued. A large attendance is expected at the convention. C LaOe Vor:teru faclo has added a new style day coaoh to its through pa-. wnger traisn. The seats used are on the style in use previous to the chair;, but are improved, They are even more comfortable than the chairs. The window shades are a new patent by a Pullman conduct6r, and cannot Met out of the grooves made for them, thus relieving one from considerable annoynuco during the course of a jour. nay, The interior ceiling arrancgement differs consialeruble from the old style coach, being more artistic and somel wlhat on the ordor of Pnllman saloprs, the oars bliug manufaetured by the Pullman tompany.

SThere doesn't seeIm to be nmuch talk -any more relarding:the Burlinghton e;. tengiop into Northern Wyoming, but nevertheless there seems to be some probability of seeing a reality made of the reports already circulated, Ulvil Dlgilneer Gillette's corps is still at work on the south side of the Pryor mlonntains and parties, who have been la that aetion huntingu, report that the ulrveyore seem to be doing location Work, The GUiette was only recently told that daapite the fat of little talk, th Bdurliglton would branch not either Skil winter or neat spring, as this had blle ilven out by one who, by reason ,of bi olos. connection with high Selluli, wie in a poaltion to know wilt he wa talking about, Aaoarod l iAo te kit Labe pers Sthere ap. bea aa a s pPrelolabilitl of the l btlil tinto lallt lte in llil e, ThU e iolerald has a e eIi. 40 tlit properly is b lne. b toWu a ople *Ohns woma eas aenagns on the MormonO they appear to prefer to think it is th Bnrliugton and that it is all settle but the announcement that the road I coming, The residents of eastern Montana at greatly interested in the plans of th Elkhorn, Fremont & Missouri Valle; Railway company, which has beet showing signs of activity that portenu well for that section of the country. J Ouster county man said there was litte doubt but that the company intended t, build into Montana next year. "This has been reported some time," he said "and recent developments indicati that the reports are well founded. Thi Elkhorn is a part of the Northwestern system, one of the Vanderbilt lines and there is every indication that ii wants to reach new territory. The lint in already ten miles northwest of Bell Fouroche, S. D., an important cattle shipping point. I have information which I believe to be correct that thl company anticipates coming into Mon. tana next year. Its surveys extended to Powderville, on the Powder river in Custer county, about forty miles snouth east of Miles City. If the road is ex tended into Montana there is every reason to suppose that it will form a junction with the Northern Pacific and in that case it seems probable that it will go to Miles City. The road an projected to Powderville and the country between that point and Miles City offer no special diffliculties in the way of raihoad construction. In fact, the line could be built cheaply, once the right of way was secured. The Northwestern people have been inter eating themselves in the coal field in southeastern Montana and that is one thing that helps to conform this report of which I speak. They have opened up a promising coal field near Ekalaka, which, I understand, can be made to be a good producer once a railroad is built to some point near it. That particular section of Montana ships a good many cattle every year, and it is that business that the Elkhorn is on the lookout for. Up to this year, the Elkhorn and the Northern Pacific have had an under. standing on cattle sbipping rates, but the roads are doting business indepen. dently of each other this season. This indicates that they are beginning to fight, and I believe it will end by the Elkhorn invading Montana territory. The road, as I said, is a part of the Northwestern system, one of the Van ierbilt properties, but I do not believe that the death of Mr. Vanderbilt will in any way change the plans of the aompany in building into this state if they have been determined upon." President CO. . Mellen of the North tru Pacific is mentioned as a possibility 'or the prealdency of the New York, Jew Haven & Hartford railroad. Mr. fellen was at one time vice-president )f the road and it is said he would like o return to it as president. He took harge of the Northern Pacifla upon the iorgauliation of the company after the oad passed out of the hands of the re. ievers, and under his control the road as been making rapid strides to the rout. An attempt was made to wreck a rain on the Great Northern railway denday, near Iron siding, about five iles from Helena. Fortunately the ngineer of a north bound freight, vhioh preceded a passenger train, saw be obstruction, which consisaed of teel rails, angle bars and ties, fastened a a secure manner across the track, in Ime to stop his train, It is thought the ttempt was made by some discharged mployes, who had been hanging about he railroad boarding house at Mid anyon, and whom the boarding house aeper refused to feed free, Y Y Y It is probable that after Jan. 1, 1900 900,000 or more railroad employes in the United States will pay fare when traveling over any but the respective lines on which they Itre employed. Not only are railroad men to be barred from a time honored privilege, but everybody elSe, not excepting the infi. ential shipper, will be forced to pay for tickets, At a meeting of a committee representing the largest six railway companies in the country in Chicago Tuesday it was decided to recommend to a general meeting of offlcials of all roads west of Chicago, to be held in St. Louis, Oct. 10, an entire abolition of passes and all forms of free transporta. tnon. The only exception to the radi cal action is employes traveling on buniness for their respective companies. Early in June the committee sent out queries to the president of every road in the country asking an opinion on the proposition to do away with free trans. portation, including annual passes ex changed between the officers of differ unt roads and employes. Of 900,000 miles of railroad in the United States 120,000 were voted in favor of the proposition. Managers of the remain. ing 40,000 miles have not replied or remain non.committal, On this vote, the committee's aotion was based, Conferenoes of all the executive offlcers of all railroads are to be held in differ. art seotioa, of the country to take dell. nite action on this question. Follow. iug are the members of the committee that is responsialble for the propoaed abolition of the pass;: Vice-Presient Rrling, of the Milwaukee di St. Paul; Vioe.Preildent Morton, of the santa .; Preasident Ba.t, of the Union Pa. 01So; Vioe.President Harar, of the ll. nois Csntral; Vio.Prealdaunt Ramsey of the Wabash; VioePreident Johnusn, of the Rook Island, Tell Voie satoer A breatiful comilexio is rn impollsibli. witkout J. piure blhoul, the sort ut nny exa~ in eonneotlion with ged tion, a health liver apd bowela, r aClewver 1oat '-oa ants iriwtly on wol, liver aknd ikide ys lkp.j.

The high school, eighth grade, sev enth, sixth and fifth grades are having an unusually large enrollment for the month of September. The plan of giving a Library Day en tertainment by the pupils of the grades is being discussed. The different grades will be supplied this year with juvenile periodicals to be used in con nection with the grade libraries. For current events, the high school library is supplied with "Harper's Weekly," Review of Reviews and Bill ings Gazette. The "North American Review" is also found in the list of high school periodicals. r * * The change of rooms will not interfer with laboratory work. Everything necessary for experiments in physics, chemistry and botany is available. The eleventh grade class this year is especially favored. On account of its small membershin, the students receive individual attention from their teach ers. This cannot fall to greatly ad vance their work. Miss Harriet Stebbins of the class of ')8 was admitted to the Denver high at school without examinatio .merely presenting her credit ca from the Billings high school. e time will ti soon come when our h school will S not need to seeka ceon any "ac credited" list as t igher schools con cerned wil ask is consideration for their own sak . Already the presi- a dent of on at university, who made h a thorou a~ vestition of school b work here, ot only in our high school b, but also in the grades, has signified his fi intention of urging the state.board to el place our high school on the accredited hi list. Aftr all, the "accredited" school nr matter is nothing but a name, a pleas- B ing ad rertisement. During the past ki twelve years the principal of the high g) sohool has had no students refused ad- hi mission, or subjected to examination tt for admission. se * * * 4 The following visitors w BV'eloom- t td in the vari us r s recently: w fesdames Pant , an, Crawford, Boal, and Burt , Misses MoKellar, th Ross, Talbot, Dinwoodie, Rixon, Goss.

Billings ought to be th I educational center of a vast surround ing region and her high school ough i to supply every requirement of a first class secondary education. * * * If there are any perons' who thinl our high school is not doing adequat work we would mildly suggest tha they visit some reputable high school or academy, or preparatory school an( then compare those with ours. Dic you ever notice that many people wh. criticise our high school or even the graded work, are persons wholly uneo quainuted with the scope of work, thi broad methods, the course of study, and the individuality of the teachers? * * * An unhealthy rivalry has existed be. tween the grades of the two schools. To mitigate thid and to soften the harsh expressions of local prejudice, the school board has been requested to des ignate the different schools by appropri ate names. In lieu of such action the teachers are using the word number as "Second Ward" school and "Third Ward" school. The high school, hap pily, has not been involved. There are twice as mtany students in the high school tbis year as were in at tendance two years agilo.
