VOL. VI., No. 1. HAVRE, CHOUTEAU COUNTY, MONTANA, W1DNEEDAY. JUNE 10, 1908'. $2.00 PER YAR. $2.0 PE ER WHAT CONGRESS DID. ` .. °. ' 1b s, ,, 14r -McCutcheon in Chicago Tribune. MONTANA LAD IS AGAIN VICTORIOUS Milwaukee, June 4.-Stanley Ket chel of Montana, was given the de cision over Billy Papke, of Kewaunee, Ills., at the end of a fast and furious 10-round bout before the Milwaukee Boxing club at Hippodrome tonight before a crowd estimated at 6,000 persons. The contest was a terrific affair from the tap of the gong to the finish with the exception of the time during which the men were en gaged in clinching. Time and time again Kethel forced his man to the ropes with his furious onslaughts of right and lefts to the head and body. Ketchel was on top of his man from gong to gong without ever giving him a moment's rest exept when they were in clinches. Ketchel appealed to the referee to break the clinches repeat edly. Only in the eighth did Papke have an even break. Ketchel, in the first round, took considerable steam out of his man by landing a terrific right to the jaw, sending Papke to his knees. CLASS OF NINE ARE GRADUATED' Mlntyre's Opera house could hardly accommodate the company who came to attend the commencement exercises of the Havre High school last Saturday eve., when a class of nine graduat ed. The graduates were: Marion Iouise Broadwater, Mary Francis Gorman, I rene Elizabeth Gorman, Eva Lena Bickle McLeod, Clara Lillian Allen, Selma Olive Bondeson, Fred M. Rose, Leo J. de Lorimer and Jos. W. Roes, Jr. The program was most interesting throughout and the orations, four in number, were most meritorious pre seestations of young ideas. Miss Bon deson spoke on "Fads;" Jos. Rose on "Evolution of Northern Montana;" Miss Mary Gorman on "The Other Side of It;" and Miss Allen on "Luk vs. J.abor." Mary Francis Gorman is entitled in he" class standing for the school year to a free scholarship in any of the state institutions in Montana. This scholarship carries with it free tuition, free books and many other privileges. She also won the prize of twenty dol lars in gold at the oratorical contest. The graduates have planned some thing as follows: Miss Broadwater in tends entering some Eastern unniveri-. sity next fall; Miss Mary Gorman, Ir ene Gorman and Clara Alley will go to the Dillon State Norm` collbeg; Fred and Joe Rose expet ~a:. g to West Point or some simi :iastitu tion; Leo deLorimer will ,enter the Columbia Unnivpsity and Miss Bon S-will go tothe Winona State The Montana lad worked the right and left shift to good advantage and bewildered Papke in his attempts to get to him. If Ketchel, as was said by somie, was a bit; slow, -he did not show it tonight. Not even for one minute did he let his man rest. At the end of the last round Papke was plainly in distress and would have hardly lasted another round. Both men trained faithfully and we, in the pink of condition. Hugo Kelly, Jack (Twin) Sullivan, Jak (Philadelphia) O'Brien, Unk Rus sell and Peter Jackson challenged the winner. Jackson offered to put up a side bet of $5,000 for a match. The biggest crowd in the history of boxing in Milwaukee witnessed the match. Among the notable specta tors were Jim Coffroth and Abe At tell of California. Joe Gans of Bal timore. Percy McFarland of Chicago, and Frank Gotch, the champion wrest ler.

Many Residences on the North Side of the Track were Under Water. All Danger has Now Passed Here. The exeptional heavy rains which visited Northern Montana last week brought a flood of water which tax ed the carrying capacity of Milk riv er's' bed to the limit, causing consid erable loss and damage to property and tying up railroad traffic on the Great Northern and Montana Central roads. The first intimation Havre had was gleaned from Saturday's Great Falls papers telling of the exceptionally high water in the Missouri river and its tributaries, but few if any Havre people anticipated the rush of water which came from the great scope of country drained by the Milk river. The river rose rapidly for hours on Sunday andM onday saw nearly all the houses on the north side of the rail road track in water. The water con tinued to come up inch after inch and yesterday the fifty odd families liv ing on the north side ofr the track were forced out of their homes, some even having to be taken off in boats. Alex Armstrongs got out Tuesday afternoon by boat, Chief of Police go ing over by boat after them. Joe Prithard was taken off of the roof of his house west of the county bridge by Joe LaCroix early in the day. Those living on this side of the river but across the track were able to get to the city, but many of those across the rver were forced to take to the hills. For hours the Havre Coal company ke .a crew of men at work in an effort to save their railroad bridge connecting with the mine. Day and night the men stood on the bridge with poles to keel) the drift wood and debris from lodging against the pile HURRAH FOR THE GLORIOUS FOURTH It is now some years since Havre spread herself on a Fourth of July celebration, having for various reasons let the day go while her people who were so inclined visited the neighbor ing towns on that day. This year the business men's association have deter mined to do things as the slang say ing goes, and among the other things they decided a few days ago that it wa" time that Havre held another of those rousing old fashioned celebra tions. To this end at the last meet ing of the Industrial Ass'n. a com mittee was appointed and they have preplled the following program for the celebhation: Sunrise salute of 45 guns. Base ball game called 10 o'clock a. iu. Prize $25.00. Grand parade from 11 to 12 m. head ed by the Havre brass band. 3 DINNER. 1:,O 1. m.--Speaking at the grand stand. I-:e. L. J. Christler orator of he day. Instrumental and vocal music by Havrc's artists. 3 o'lock p. m.--SPORTS. Fat Man's race, 1st. $3; 2nd, $2. supports of the bridge. Sunday night one of the spans of the piling went, Monday another and then telegraph poles were tied to the bridge in an en deavor to hold the structure, but it was hopeless, for the bridge broke a way from the south side and swung down about 10 o'lock Tuesday morn ing. Early Monday morning it was seen that the low lands to the west of the city and on the south side of the rail road track was being transformed in to a lake, but no particular attention was pad to it until Tuesday morning when the water had reached the Con cert hail engine room and was rais ing about 18 inches an hour, and threatening to flood the main business street. The water continued to raise all af ternoon and at 6:30 had come down the main street to Vollmer's black smith shop and was down back of the Jim block. This water came in through a bridge about a mile west of the city and was held up from going into the river by the road grade, being at 7 o'lock in the evening nearly four feet higher than the water in the river and gain ing every minute. About this time the railroad officials senced that if they would save a lot of track this ipressure must be relieved for it was then just on top of the grade and if it started to wash over it would take out nearly a mile. A hole was started through the road bed and it was on ly a matter of minutes until the tide set in from town. It was only this move that saved the main business pot tion of the city from a babtism of d water. The cut which was about 10 e feet last night at seven o'clock, had Girl's race, ages 12 years and under, 1st, $3; 2nd, $2. Boy's race, ages 15 years and under, $3 1st.; 2nd, $2.

JUNIORS AND SENIORS DANCE The Juniors and Seniors of the Havre High school gave a most enjoy able and well attended ball Monday evening at the Hotel Havre. The e vent proved one of the most pleasant of the year. Fruit punch was served during the evening and the music was served by Mrs. R. X. Lewis. The following were the hostesses and hosts The Misses Marion Broadwater, Selma Bondeson, Clara Allen and Lena Eth el Dunn, and Messrs. Fred Rose, Leo deLorimer, Jos.

Sine Sunday the trains from the East have been held here and several hundred p)eople have been marooned. They were mostly a jolly good natur ed p)eoplc, inclined to take things as they came and not to growl. Yester day afternoon two trains were run out west, one to go to Chester and the other to Cut Bank, to which later point the road has been kept open all along. The conditions of the Montana Cen tral track must be something awful, Judging from what little can be lear, ed from various sources. A construc tion train went out Sunday afternoon, managing to get west 46 miles, to a -point where the Missouri river runs along side the track, and from there on. the track is out of sight for a distance of sceen miles. No wires are working to the south and nothing has been heard from Fort Benton, exept some rumors, which cannot be veri fied, to the effcet that there was four feet of water on the floor of the Grand Union hotel in Fort Benton on Monday. If this be true, the whole town must have been under water. A report also circulated to the cffect that the light plant at Great Falls had washed out and that the city was in darkness. These stories arfe only rumors. There is no way at this time of verifying them. There is a report that a passenger train on the M. & G. N. is lost be tween Shelby nd Greaat Falls. it will be some days before the road south can be opened up, though the linemen say that the wires will be in Sv'olking order tomorrow night. MRS. CARNAL PASSES AWAY DIEI)-Mirs. Florain A. Carnal, aged 24 years, passed to the Great Beyond late Sunday morning at Pheonix, Ar izona, where she had gone last Jan nary for the benefit of her health. The word was flashed over the wires on Monday to Mr. James Carnal and was one of the last telegrams receiv ed from the west before the tie-up. inexpressibly sad was the news to all who knew and loved Mrs. Carnal here to learn that the end had come, for, though she had been in poor health for months, having contracted a severe cold early last winter, the hope was ever present that she would return again completely recovered. The news was received from Mr. F. A. Carnal, who was called to her side about a month ago by the information that she was failing fast and Mr. C r .nal stated in the message that he was coming to Havre with the remains for burial here. Since then ncthing has been heard from him as the wires lines are down. The party will probha bly arrive on the first tra'n throu~gh from the south over the Montana Cen tral, whieh will probably be the later part of the week. The deceased was a true loyal wife; a loving and devoted mother; an affce tionate daughter and the grief of the sorrowing husband and father and mother and sister is shared by number less friends in Northern Montana who knew her. and, knowing her loved htr as a noble and pure woman. She is survived by a husband--M-r. F. A. Carnal; a little four-year old daughter, a sister, Mrs. James S. Car nal ani father and mother, Mr. ard Mrs. Grahm Williamson, of Arb-lla, North Dakota, who arrived in the city this evening.. Mrs. Carnal was a member of Havre Chapter No. Z0, Order of the Eastern Star. The many friends in this sect ion of Montana of Frank B. Church ill will be pleased to know that he is in business again at the old star.d, having bought the fixtures of the Churchill Jewelry Co. The stock was shipped to Spokane last week by J.J. Judd. Mr. Churchill will be pleased to meet all his old friends at same old stand.
