At the high mass, which was sang by Father Grant of the Crow mission, the bishop assisted from his throne and at the appointed time stepped to the altar floor, where he preached a most fordable sermon on the "Beauties and Advantages of the Catholic Church." His remarks were earnest and brought conviction to the ears of his hearers. At the end of the mass the bishop assisted by Fatners Grant and Stack, confirmed a class of 34 children and grown people. This ceremony was witnessed by the large congregation that taxed the capacity of the church. Mr. and Mrs. Thomas S. Hogan acted as sponsers for those confirmed. This demanded their presence inside t altar railing, where they placed th r right hand on the right shoulder of each confirmed. The whole way through it was a grand service. The church was hand somely decorated and the bishop thanked the ladies who arranged the decorations. The choir was also com plimented and pronounced the best music had for years in the church. Mr. West was ilolin accompanist and the choir was augmented by Miss Scott from California, a guest of Mrs. Ross, the organist, and John Egan, who possesses a rich tenor.

MR. GRUWELL OBJECTS Says He Never Gave His Consent, to Have Arcade Cut Through His Building. There is a possibility of a hitch in the plans of the new postoffice owing to the fact that C. O. Grunwell objects to having an arcade cut through his building. Senator Grunwell was seen by a representative of The Gazette about the affair to whom he said that building. Senator Gruwell was seen granted for the making of this arcade I:e added that the entrance if cut ac cording to the plans already received would cause 'him a considerable loss and that he did not feel abligated to the public to the amount of $1,000, the expense of the proposed opening. John Yates who aranged with Mr. Gruwell for this part of the plan was seen later and he said that the matter was not only a disappointment to him but that it might seriously disarrange the plans. He said that he had talked with Mr. Gruwell about the matter be fore the bid had been sent away and I that it seined to be satisfactory at that time. How the affair will be con sidered by the department is a qies tion. From the standpoint of the public everybody hopes that such an entrance will eventually be made. MILES CITY TEAM WINS. The Score Stood 11-0 In Favor of the Visitors. A football team from Mits City came here Sunday morning with the Intention of "doing up" the team of Company K, which they succeeded in doing in the afternoon to the tune of 11-0. When it was time for the as sembling of the members of the local team it was found that several of the players that had participated in the game the day before were so badly bruised and wrenched that they were unfit to take part in another strenuous game so soon afterwards and a team of substitutes was put in. In spite of their lack of weight and practice the members of the patched up team gave a good account of them selves and the Milesians went home well knowing that they had been in a football game. Miles won the toss and kicked off to the soldiers. The play was fast and furious from that time until a player of the aggregation from the cowboy city broke through and made a fine long run for a touch down. He failed to kick goal and the first half ended 5-0. The second half has no sensational features but the boys from below carried the ball by a series of pro longed line bucks from far down in their territory clear across the field and over the soldiers' goal. The goal was kicked and the game ended 11-0. The players for Company K were: Mp9-rle, . Deckert, F. Deckert, Logan, Chase,- rker, Mueller, Hoe, Foster, and Miller. For Miles City the players were: Donahue, Canovan, Williams, O. C. Haynes, R. H. Haynes, Leighton, Rin aldo, Brown, Coonrod, Bohling, Cole man, Worner, Becroft, Nugent, Stobe and Boateman.
