ticular the number of buyers who will
be on hand will be exceptionally large,,
as 'the torthcoming sale has been ad

the unusual demand that exists for

Dewey Gang Going to Place of Pre
liminary Hearing.
Denver, Colo.; June 8.-A special
to the Times from Colby, Kan., says
that under guard of a sheriff and
posse and a company of state militia,
Chauncey Dewey, Clyde Wilson and
W. J. McBride ,alleged murderers of
,B. M. Berry and two sons, left there
today for a 40-mile march across
country'to St. Francis, 'here the pre
liminary trial will be held. It is be
lieved that the march will consume
three days, and. as telephone wires
have been cut, the guard is not likely
to be heard from until St. Francis
is reached.
Dewey, who is a son of a Chicago
millionaire; and gecond coussl to Ad
m.iral Dewey, refuses to talk, but
seems cheerful and in good spirits.
Offcers of the militia and others dd
aqt fear an open battle with armed
settlers, but are afraid that as the
party passes through the bills and

Tourists Conclude They Would Rather
See Geysers Than More Farms
and Stock.
Fn preparing the. tinerary of the
German agriculturalists who are siak
ing a tour of the United States the
man connected with the department
of agriculture at Washington seems
to have taken it for granted that the
visitors did not care anythihg for
sightseeing and wished to devote the
entire time at their disposal to look
ing at farms, packing houses and
kindred institutions connected directly
or remotely with farming. For, that
reason every day that the Germahs
would remain in the country was
scheduled for a visit to some place
where they might see all that the
farmers, feeders, irrigators and pack
ers of the country had to show them
that was new and different than to be
seen in the land of the kaiser and
Francis Joseph, as all are subjects
of Germany or Austria. r
The" visitors, however, it appears,
had notions of their own, and after
they had seen how farms are tilled in
the eastern states, how hogs and cat
tle are slaughtered and packed at
Kansas City and how irrigating is
done in the southwest and far west
and they had become filled with won
der and amazement at the prodigous
ways and incomparable thrift and in
genuity of the Americans in every line
of particular interest -to them, they
concluded to see something else. Bill
ings was among the places of the most
importance named in the itinerary
sent out from Washington, but that
made no difference to the tourist
The fact that this is the center ,a
the greatest Nsheep feeding territory
in the world did-not appeal to thenm.
Neither did they care that over 'on
the west side, in the Deer Lodge val
ley, much that is unusual and inter
esting is to be seen. They cut both
out., Instead of stopping they con
tinued on to the Yellowstone National
park. T'hey had read and heard so much
of the way nature has in that charmed
spot of surprising and aweing poor,
insignificant man that they deemed it
would ,be neglecting the opportunity
of - a lifetime not to stop there and
see if *hat they had heard was true.
They may have thought it to be
another of the marvelous inventions
of the Yankee that their Teutonic cau
tion and prudence had taught them
to take it with a grain of allowance,
but being so near they decided.to take
chances and see for themselves. If
their phlegmatic natures will permit
they will probably say upon their re
turd home that as a show place the
park excelled anything they saw on
their entire trip, even though they
may with true German practicality,
deplore the fact that so much energy
and power cannot be utilized, instead
of being permitted to gO to waste.
So the park and not Billings and
Deer Lodge had the pleasure of filling
their minds with new thoughts and
gratifying their vision with 'sights
never before beheld. It is undoubt
edly true that the park contains more
naturab wonders and novelties than
the Hesper or any of the other farms
which it was intended to show them
in the Yellowstone valley, but it
is unable to give them the informa
tion they might have obtained had
they carried out the trip as planned
for them by one of the' hired men
of the secretary of agriculture. Spe
cial arrangements had been made by
Mr. O'Donnell and others for their en
teitainment and - diversion. Several
thousand sheep were to be rounded
up and herders in their portable
houses had. been kept within easy
al!, so that they .might drive in and
et the foreigners see how they live
and case for their charges, while the
reediig pens were to be showd them
and the manner of fattening sheep
for the market ,was to be explained.
The irrigating ditches are pow all
running full and the alfalfa is about
ready for the first cutting, Then thero
was to be a big dinner under the shade
of a magnificent grove, with luit a
ittle beer, and a drive of several
miles over the country. But all this
they chose to forego for the sase

were disappointed when they learned
that instead of stopping here the visi
tors would merely whisk through
town. An a measure, however, they
had been prepared. A number of
days ago I. D'. O'Donnell received a
letter from the secretary of' the party
informing him that in ail probability
no stop would be made here, as it had
been deciQed to visit the park ind
this would necessitate a change in
the original plans. Still hoping that
they would be able to make a tour
of the park and visit Billings also,
Mr. O'Donnell said nothing about
the change. Last Saturday a baggage
car containing the baggage of the
party arrived from the west' and re
Tnained until a through train arrived
and then it became very apparent
that no stop would be made, and Mr.
O'Donnell let it be known. Because
of the length of 'time necessary to
view the park it was accepted here
a a fact that other places would not
be honored with a visit, notably Far-'
go, N. D., where a stop was to be made
for the purpose of visiting the big
wheat farms of the region.
Expected Opposition Proves to Have
Had But Slight Existence
Park City a Surprise.
though it was generally conceed
that a safe majority would be record
ed for the affirmative in last Satur
day's bond election, the smallness of
the negative vote cast in the city pre,
cincts came as a welcome surprise
to the friends of the proposition to
bond the county for the erection of a
new court house and jail.
When the commissioners decided to
call a special election considerable
opposition developed in the city, par
ticularly on the south side, where the
prediction was made that the question
would be defeated, or if not defeated
the majority it would receive would
be infinitesimal. As events go to show
the anti-bond men overestimated their
strength or else *a decided' change
in sentiment occurred between the
date of the call and the election.
No. 3 was the only southside pre
cinct that came anywhere near mak
ing good so `far as voting down the
proposition was concerned, but even
there. a majority was in favor and
those who were advocates of the
bonds have .no great cause for sor
The election passed off quietly and
but little was heard, concerning it
during the day. But in spite of this
the interest was great and the vote
polled surprisingly large. With but
few exceptions the heavier taxpayers
favored the prepositlon and they not
only. voted, but worked for the seue
ceeas of the measure. Almuost to a
unit the workingmen voted for th
bonds. This was but natural;, as th
