(INCORPORATED) Havre Hotel Building SOME SCRAPS FRAMING UP Havre fight fans are lokoing for ward to a number of notable scraps with pleasing expectancy, in the be lief that the lid will be off during the state convention of the fraternal Or der of Eagles, as it was at Helena, the state capital last year. In any event the promoters appear to have some reasons for this belief and the city is rapidly recruiting a number of top notch scrappers, led by Tommy Reil ly, champion light-heavyweight of the Northwest, who has been rusti cating on a sheep ranch near Stan ford, Montana. Correspondence has been opened with a view of getting on Joe Wal cott and if the purse should not be large enough to suit the dusky fight ers demands to invite Hugo Kelly to a contest with Reilly. Reilly hails from Seattle, but of late years has made his headquarters in this city where he is a prime favorite among the bettors, as he is at Fort Assinni boine, near-by. Reilly fought a ten round draw with Jim Flynn in Butte, and since moving further north has easily disposed of such men as Eddie Croake, former champion of Iowa; Terry Mustaine, champion of Wyom ing, and George Bates. In Havre just before the lid was put on he fought a twenty-round draw with Tom Kinsley that will remain a scientific classic in the annals of the Montana ring. He is now training in the Bear Paw mountains. Another fighter of note who has come to the city with a view to mix ing at the proposed fistic carnival is Kid Fredericks, former light-weight champion of the Northwest, whose ability is amply testified to by the long string of victories accorded him as registered in the Police Gazette annual. The Eagles have arranged to put Fredericks on for a limited boxing exhibition with a local negro scrapper at the next meeting night of the order, when a large number of new members will be initiated in its mysteries. Fredericks has been spend ing the winter in hunting the big game of the Rockies near Kalispell, Mont. He is in training under the direction of his manager Louis Fournier. Beside these notable scrappers a number of smaller fry are haunting the city in anticipation of being able to get on. C. P. Hilla and Peter Des Rosier have been chosen as delegates of the Havre lodge of the Catholic Order of Foresters, to attend the state conven tion to be held in Anaconda next Tues day. Both will attend. The Junior class of the Havre high school will give an invitation party Saturday evening, June 9, in the par lors of the Hotel Havre. Hilla's or chestra will be in attendance and there will be dancing and icec ream circula ting about the vicinity. John Bailey was back to the city from his ranch near Fort Assin niboine yesterday, looking in as f:ne fettle as he ever did in his 89 years of his history-or, was 189 years? Mr. Bailey reports the "craps" doing fine out the reservation way. BUSINESS OPENING-for the right party. Must have cash, for particu lars "Talk with Carruth."

General Kuroki, the famous Japa nese soldier, was recently the guest of Mr. R. A. C. Smith on his steam yacht, Privateer, during a trip up the Hudson to West Point, where he in spected the cadets. It remained for the trip down to New York to show Kuroki, for the first time a vanquished man, says William Hoster, the New York American's cor respondent. HIe charged a roulette wheel with his accustomed reckless daring and was thrown back with heavy loss. Mr. Smith presided at the toy wheel, which he has among his various amusements on board the yacht. Kuroki was provided with a stack of chips, and the game was explained to him. He risked a small stack on the red and lost. . Then he tried 14, 7, 23, 9 and 6 and lost again. Once more he tempted fortune on the black, and once more he lost. He stood and studied the wheel curi ously. He frowned and tried the red again, and again he lost. "Ah," he said. Then he tried a new combination of numbers and lost once more. Tugging at his mustache, he burst into a laugh, seized a newspaper man by a shoulder. thrust what chips remained to him In the scribe's hand and pointed to the wheel. The newspaper man lost also, and when the last chip was gone, Ku roki slapped the reporter on the back, laughed at him, frowned at the board and stalked away-for the first time in his life a beaten man. But half an hour later, Kuroki was discovered alone, studying that wheel, and thinking, perhaps, how he might turn its flank, pierce its center or over come it by a bayonet charge. He hurried on deck to see Grant's tomb when the monument appeared in view. As a colonel of infantry, Kuroki met Grant in 1871, when the latter made his tour of the world. "He was a great soldier," said Ku roki. "Our schoolboys know him as they know Lincoln, Roosevelt and F]ranklin. I like your military acade my. It is fine. The boys are splendid. It is a great institution." "A NO. 1" WEALTHY TRAMP. Remarkable Hobo Spent $7.56 to Travel Nearly Half Million Miles. Well dressed and well groomed, "A No. 1," the most remarkable tramp in the world, visited Middletown, N. Y., recently for the second time in twenty four years, says the New York Times. Known only as "A No. 1," he has trav eled the world over many times since he started his hobo life in 1883, when he was eleven years old. He has been in nearly every city, village and hamlet in the United States and has covered 451,000 miles. He has spent in actual cash only $7.56 for traveling. Since Jan. 1 he has traveled 5,200 miles at a cost of 26 cents. Un like the ordinary tramp, "A No 1" does not beg. He gets a living carving im ages and heads on Irish potatoes. He carries a number of life insurance poli cies. A considerable fortune he never touches. He does not use tobacco or liquor. He has willed his property to a trust fund as a foundation for prizes to be competed for by public school students in his native city. He has also purchased a cemetery lot there. CARRIAGES AS SOUVENIRS. Wealthy Southerner's Expensive Idea For Dinner Favors. As souvenirs of a recent dinner at Memphis, Tenn., Albert S. Caldwell, a former attorney of Indianapolis, who has accumulated a fortune in the south since retiring from the bar, gave to each guest some sort of conveyance, the total cost aggregating thousands, says a special dispatch to the New York Times.

Mrs. Sidney Neeley, Mrs. Cleland Smith, Mrs. Harry Johnson and others he gave landaus, runabouts, victorias or Stanhopes. Mr. Caldwell has recently disposed of all his horses and taken up automo blling, but he explained to his guests that it was his desire that all his wo men friends should stick to the horse. Is the Eagle Destruotive? Upon the question whether a bald eagle is a destructive bird hinges the guilt or innocence of A. M.

Dimmock, who caught the bird after shooting and wounding It some days ago, was arrested by Game Pro tector Shoemaker. A hearing 'will be held.

Montana is interested in the main tenance and betterment of Assinni boine. Hundreds of thousands of dollars are paid to northern Montana men every year for hay, oats, vege tables, cattle and sheep for that post, and every time a contract is awarded for suppllies for Assinniboine, it has influence on the markets for every article produced by the farmers from Mondak to Cascade. "The Fort Assinniboine reservation is by far the largest military reserve in the United States. It embraces country of such diversity in topo graphical features that the soldiers stationed at Assinniboine can get act ual field experience such as they can secure nowhere else except in time of war. It is sufficiently remote from a large city to make easy the mainten anice of discipline and the proper mor ale among the troops. The relations between the fort and the people of the surrounding country are markedly pleasant. The post is so located that troops from it may speedily be sent to the Pacific coast or to the cities of the east. All conditions affecting the health of the men of the garris on are exceptionally good. The build ings are new and commodious, and the reservation would prove the best in the country for the proposed farm for the growing of cavalry horses. for the growing of cavalry horses. "Most powerful arguments in favor of the maintenance and improvement of Fort Assinniboine are numerous. Every commercial organization ct northern Montana should immediately take action toward bringing to the attention of the proper officials such arguments. Every merchant of north ern Montana should get into action, writing to men of influence at the national capital. The people of Helena and those of Missoula are very busy in the cam paign to save their posts; the people of Havre are most directly interested in the maintenance of Fort Assinni boine, but they should not be required to make the fight alone and unaided. Fort Assinniboine is of as much im portance to Great Falls, directly and indirectly, as it is to Havre. All northern Montana should- join in the fight." Helena, Mont., May 31, 1907.-The new city directories lately issued by the R. L. Polk company indi'ate a gratifying increase in a number of cities in Montana. The directory gives Helena an increase of 1,200, Anaconda 1,100, Billings 4,500, and Butte nearly 10,000.

The Great Northern and Northern Pacific railroads have made a new rule regarding the wool shipments this season. Owing to increased traf fic and shortage of equipment, the companies will inaugerate the old cus tom of storing wool in cars until it is sold at baling points. Hereafter the railroad companies will collect demur age charges on all cars of wool which are not unloaded within forty-eight hours. This will necessitate the build ing of warehouses at central shipping points.
