6dZEMAN CHAMPIONS LEAVE THEIR SCALPS BEHIND. BASE BALL SEASON IS OPEN Collier's "Regulars" Lose Ragged Game to "Scrubs" by Very Small Margin. Monday's Daily Gazette. While not claiming. the champion ship of the state, the Magic City Bowling club has the satisfaction of having a team that has beaten, the one which does lay claim to that title, Bozeman being defeated in Saturday's tournament by the local bowlers. The first game-of the series schedul ed for the three teams went to Liv ingston and in this the Billings men were worsted, but by a narrow mar gin, the men from the Windy City Winning by 26 pins. The defeat, how ever, was disappointing to the home players, as it was the result of one or two poor plays by a couple of their best men, and ones who usually may be relied upon at the most critical pdoiiti. But such things will happen when least expected. In the second game Livingston was pitted against the champions, the men from Bozeman. The players from the Gallatin valley found it merely pastime to vanquish their opponents, beating them by the handsome ma jority of 64 plns. Billings Beats Champions. Each of the visiting teams now having won a game and Billings hav ing to go against the acknowledged champions of the state, interest in the remaining game was of the liveliese. While the home men said nothing, the visitors were free in their pre dictions that only one result was pos sible-Billings would be shut out, for had not Livingston beaten them and had not Livingston in turn bee de feated" by Bozeman? But their cal culations old not correspond with the results. The drubbing they had re ceived from Livingston merely acted as a bracer for the home men and when they inserted their fingers into holes of the wooden spheres it was with the determination to show the boasters a new. tritk. It was no walk away, but the main end in view was accomplished, just the same. When the scores were footed up it was shown that Billings had won by 18 pins. A Wild Crowd. The demonstration with which the announcement was received threaten ed to seriously injure the building. Noise? Yes, there was noise, and plenty of it. Yells, cheers and other exhibitions of the wildest and most frantic joy were indulged in to an extent that would have made the craziest fan that ever "rooted" at a baseball game hang his head* in shame and wonder why he ever thought he could give encouragement to a favorite. But the noise. and yells had not been reserved for the out come. Wilder or more persistent and determined "rooting" had never been seen anywhere than marked the prog ress of the entire game and some of the more enthusiastic encouragers of the home talent found themselves so hoarse and tired when the end came that all they could do was to wave their arms and distort their faces in vaiin endeavor to make themselves heard. It was one of the wildest scenes ever witnessed at a contest of any kind. But there was excuse for it. Bozeman had come down with an al most clean record, having byen de feated only once before in. t seriesi of 17 match games, thd game lost be ing won by Butte. It was such an unusual experience for the home men to topple over top notchers that al most anything was pardonable on the part of their partisans.. It must be admitted that the Boze manites made a heroic effort at pre serving appearance and sought to make it seem that they took their de feat gracefully, but the trial to which they were put was a little too hard and try as they might they could not conceal their. disappointment and chagrin. The easy manner in which they had downed Livingston made their unexpected and undreamed of defeat by Billings all the harder to bear. But they promised to try again and with different results the next (,:SASEBALL SEASON OPENED.

The formdr aomp what are supposed to be the best play ers in the city and who have been se lected by Collier in anticipation of the proposed Eastern Montana league. Collier pitched for the regulars, but was in no condition to do so, having met too many of his friends before he went to the grounds. The result was that when he began passing them over the plate the "scrubs" had no dif ficulty whatever in finding him and for a while it was a procession that went around the diamond. In addi tion he also wanted to play the part of coach and some very ragged ball was the outcome. In the last three innings matters changed, however, as the "Regulars" put Harker, formerly of the old pro fessional nine, in the box and the "scrubs" failed to sdare. At the conclusion of the game thO tally sheet showed 8 to 7, the odd being in favor of the "scrubs." FENCING PUBLIC LANDS. Suits Brought to Decide an Important Question. From Monday's Daily Gazette. Three suits of more than ordinary importance to the stock interests of the country will shortly come up for trial in the federal court. These are the cases of the United States against Cabott T. Thomas, Herman T. Witt and Edward Cardwell, all of Yellow stone county, against whom United States District Attorney Carl Rasch instituted actions several days ago to compel the defendants to remove fences which they had erected and which enclosed large tracts of the pub lic domain, says the Helena Inde pendent. A peculiar fact in the cases is that while the fences mentioned in the conplaint have been built on the land actually owned by the defend ants, the stocknmen erecting the fences have purchased or leased the land owned by them in localities to enable each of them to enclose a large tract of public lands with their fences, The question involved is whether stockmen or the land owners may build fences on their own lands, when by so doing they shut off ingress and egress to public lands lying between the tracts owned or controlled by the men building the fences. The govern ment contends that they have no right to do so, while the defendants assert that as they have not built their fences on land they do not actually control, they have transgressed no law. Some time ago the question was brought up in the United States court for the district of Wyoming and the government won. The stockmen did not appeal the case, and the question was never settled. It is stated that in the present instance the cases will probably reach the United States su preme court, and this important ques tion be permanently settled. The defendants are required to file their answer by June 2. WILL VISIT THE COAST. President Roosevelt Planning an Ex. tended Western Trip.

Savage, the well know Unitarian minister in New York, wril ing on spiritualism in AinsleJ's Mage sine for March, says: I am now to detail a little experiene which seems to me to have about it cei tain features which 'are very unusua and therefore worthy of special re marks. Never in my life until my sol died two years ago did I attempt to ge into communication with any specie person at any sitting held with an; medium. I have always :t.kyen the atti tide'of a student tr ing t0o solve.,th general problem involved. On two o three occasions, however, within th last two years I have tried to see if could get anything that appeared to b a message from my boy. He died tw years ago last June, at the age of this ty-one. I. was having a sitting wit] Mrs. Piper. My son claimed to be pres ent. Excluding for the moment all oth er things, I wish definitely to outlin this one little experience. At the tim of his death he was occupying a roon with a medical student and an old pet sonal friend on Jog street, in. Boston He had moved there from a room h occupied on Beacon street since I hai visited him, so that I had uever beef in his present room. I, knew nothin, about it whatever and could not evei have guessed'as to anything concern ing it which he n~ight say: He said: "Papa, I want you to go a once to my roomj Look in my drawer and you will fiind there a lot of loos papers. Among them are some which, wish you to take and destroy-at once. He would not be satisfied until I has ipromised to do this.- Mrs. Piper, re member, was in a dead trance at the time, andi her hand was writing.. She had nd personal acquaintance ilth m, son and, so far as I know, had neve seen him. I submit that this referenc to loose notes and papers which to some unknown reason he was anxiou to have destroyed is something whicl would be beyond the range of guess work. even had Mrs. Piper been con scious. Though my boy and I had been Intl mate heart friends all our lives, this re quest was utterly inexplicable to me It did not even enter into my mind t. give a wild guess as to what he mean' or why he wanted this thing done. I went, however, to his room, searche( his drawer, gathered up all the loose papers, looked through them and a once saw the meaning and importance of what he had asked me to do. Ther were things which he had jotted dows and trusted to the privacy of his draw er which he would not have had made public for the world. VOGUE OF COLORED SHIRT: Stripes to Be Perpendieular 'ani Smaller For the Coming Season. "The colored shirt for men's wean proves to be as lasting in its Vogue at its colors are represented to'be by the haberdasher," said a clerk in a men'i furnishing store to a reporter of the Washington Post. "The spring display, however, shows some modification in style as to color the stripes being perpendicular as here tofore. The horizontal stripe has gone out for the present. Last season bluo was the one great predominating color and the stripes ranged from the widti of a pin to two inches. This season they will be smaller. "The .dealers .will make an effort te popularize the various colors, includ lng red and pink and combinations of colors, while black stripes will also be put forward. Black has been and will be worn. but it is too suggestive of hali mourning to become a rage, as was the ease with the blue stripe. Blue is a color that almost any one can wear, while red. pink. lavender and black are not so becoming to some men. "Colored collars to match will not be forced by the dealers, as the men have decided against them. The white 2ollars will remain the proper thing. but cuffs to match will abide with the 'olored shirt as long as it lasts in men's fancy." QUEER .SECT IN ENGLAND. Community In Norfolk.

MIRACLE PICTURE IN CHURCH. Life Size Likeness of St. John the Divine Appears on Walls. Trenton, N. J., May 4.-Crowds of excited and praying Catholics have been thronging the Church of the Sacred Heart here today, gazing witlf awe and reverence on a "miracle pic ture" on the blank wall between the first and second stations of the cross. Faintly defined on the wall is a life-sized picture of St. John the Di vine, the patron saint of the church,. as it originally was. The awe-struck beholders dropped. in prayer or s-':3d in mute astonis - ment in front of the picture, which had not been observed beforp. The less credulous closely inspected the picture, but could find no explanation for the supposed miracle. Investigat ing further, the portarait was rubbed over with a, wet rag to, be sure no. sacrilegious artist was seeking no toriety by a practical joke, and still the picture remains. Rev. Thaddeus Hogan, the rector of the Church of the Sacred Heart, could offer no explanation when thle news eof the "miracle picture" was carried into his rectory, and, while he allowed the church doors to re main open all the afternoon and ev ening, told the people.to be quiet and not accept the apparition 'as a "mira cle picture" until a full investigation has been made. Late this evening a decorator solv ed the mystery of the "miracle pic ture" by recalling that when the edi fice was redecorated to receive Mgr. Satolli,, the papal delegate, an Italian artist, who could not speak English, was engaged. This artist, in endeavor ing to explain some fresco workings to the' decorator, drew this picture ct St. John the Divine, and tracing the walls of the church the picture was simply covered up with paint. This was six years ago, and now the fresdo work is beginning tdo show through the paint. Won't Eat Trust Meat. Amsterdam, N.
