It has been ascertained from authen tical sources that eight troops of the 15th Cavalry, under command of Maj or J. B. McDonald, are to relieve the Batallion of the 2nd Infantry, now stationed at Fort Assinniboine, Mon tana, in the fall after the return cf the troops from maneuvre camps. This will be pleasant news indeed to the old timers in this vicinity, as Major McDonald while Captain of the third Cavalry practically re-construct ed old Fort Assinniboine, and made it the modern post it now is. The kind and genial Major is well remembered here, and we shall all be glad to wel come him and his gallant regiment back again. Contract for the construction of the 150,000 gallon steel watertank and trestle att he post has been awarded to the Pioneer Structural & Ornament al Iron Works Co., of St. Paul, for $12,481. This work is to be completed by October of this year. The Quartermaster General has ad vertised for young horses suitable for mounts in the army. These horses if found are to be assembled at Fort Reno, Okla., and there developed and trained for service. It is expected that it will be possible to buy from sixty-five to one hundred horses in a certain part of the mountain country of the west, where for several years an experiment has been in progress in private hands of blending thorough bred blood on the native mares. This ought to make a fine horse for the army, but it remains to be seen what can be done in handling and training warm blood. The unmanageable qual ity of the thoroughbred is the unknow quantity in any such problem. If the effort to get good young horses suc ceeds, the government will go and get from four to five hundred horses to be handled at the Fort Reno-Re-mount station. Mr. L. Powers, formerly of Fort Assinniboine is is in charge of this station. BOYS PLAY GOOD BALL The Chinook baseball team reinforc ed by the pick of the Har:em team played the Great Northe:n team of ftavre a friendly game of baseball here on Sunday and were successful in de feating the home boys in the fastest and best game of baseball played in Havre in a number of years. The Chinook-Harlem bunch were very lucky to run in their five runs in the first two innings, as after that they never had a chance to score. The home team had hard luck in their batting and could not connect safely with Deever's shoots at tha right time. They continually got men on bases and the little hit that would have meant so much failed to come. The G. N. boys scored their only run in the fifth when Burke crossed the plate. It was a grand game to watch both teams putting up fine ball. The Great Northern boys are putting up a very clean, fast game and they de serve the support of the citizens c f Havre. The boys have to bring she teams in here and depend on a col lection to defray expens s thro' the lack of grounds in which they could collect an admission fee and it is not very encouraging when the col lections do not cover one-half of the expense it costs the home boys to bring a team in here. The management is in hopes that the spectators will be a little mora lib eral at the next game and they will try and furnish some interesting games through the summer. NEW MAP OF MONTANA The Railroad Commission cf Mor tana is publishing and will have r:adv for free distribution by July 15th next, a new up-to-date nrap of Mon tarna, 34 x 53 inches in size, on a scale of 12 miles to the inch. The map shows a'l the recent raIl road construction in the state, the line of each railroad being printed in a different color, and includes an in dex to towns and their location. Copy of the map will be mail d +o any address upon application to the commission. STRAY DOG! -- . " . -K - .. . .. . . ... . .. ' 1. HII,'ding n rl , IDII~E-L - U 'K (. -Zj -Hrdn in Brky Eale DEMOCRATS PREPARE FOR CONVENTION By Willis J. Abbott. Chicago, June 22, 1908.-Early next week the political center will shift from Chicago to Lincoln, Neb. Many of the correspondents who fumed and sweltered throught the uninteresting convention here are on their way to the Nebraska capital all agog to get forecasts of the platform, interviews with the probable nominee, notions as to how the contests are coming out and in general to cover that inter esting portion of a national conven tion which precedes by several days the calling of the convention itself. It is probable that Mr. Bryan rath er congratulated himself that his pres ent residence is four miles out of the city, instead of being within easy walking distance of the hotels. He will not have peace, indeed, peace is not for any presidential candidate from now until the first week in Nov ember. But at least he will have more respite from the crowds in the mid dle of his two hundred acre farm than he would in the middle of Lincoln. The President and Secretary of the National committee and several memb ers left Chicago Sunday to stop at Lincoln and then proceed to Denver. The meeting of the sub-committee which will arrange the temporary or ganization of the convention will be held on the twenty-seventh of this month. THE PROBABLE TEMPORARY OR ORGANIZATION. People are speculating abc.ut the temporary organization. As yet of course nothing definite has been done, but the .names of Free P. Morris, of Illinois, Henry D. Clayton of Alaba ma, Benjamin. F. Shive'ey of India na, and Charles A. Culbertson, of Texas, have been suggested for tem pol ary chairman. Of these probably Senator Culbertson is the best known. He is deservedly popular with Bryan democrats, and in fact with all dem ocrats throughout the nation. During the pre-convention campaign he has FORT BENTON Fort Benton, Mont., June 23,'08. Havre Herald: Wednesday morning at t n o'clock, Miss Nina C. Thibault, who has be.en one of Fort Benton's teachers for sev eral years, will be marrled to Mr. Frank A. Flaangan at the Catholic church. Mr. Flanagan was born and raised here, for the past few years he has been one of the employ.es of the Stockmen's Nat'l. bark; We lne day evening Miss Flana-an and Mhs Vir ginia Flanagan will give a re-ept:o at their home in honor cf the young couple. They exi~ect to be at han:e at Fort Benton after Au_ust first. Miss Rowena Chestnut left Wedn:s day morning for Winona, Minnesota, where she will attend a summ r school. conducted himself so thoroughly with dignity and with an eye only to the. good of the party, even though his own name was being widely sugge-t ed for first place on the ticket, that he will go to Denver with a myriad of friends and without a single enemy. Mr. Morris is known chiefly in lliln ois where he has long been active in the organization work of the Demo cratic party. He was chairman of the recent Democratic convention at Springfield, which instructed its del gates for Bryan, Henry D. Clayton is a long-time representative in Con gress, a skilled parliamentar:an, a man with a voice that could reach the farthest gallery and a friend of Mr. Bryan as long as the Nebraskan has been in political life. Mr. Shivelb y ha' been one of the best known and most popular democrats in Indiana for twenty years. Twice to my knowledge the vice-presidential nomi nation has been within his grasp had he desired it. In view of the treat ment of the Indiana delegation here at Chicago, it seems quite probable that the managers at Denver will go out of their way to bestow upon an honorel citizen of this most doubtful state a well desreved compliment. There is no doubt that Uray Wood son, secretary of the national commit tee, will be made temporary secretary of the convention, and probably con tinued in the- permanent organization. FOR SECOND PLACE. The situation in Indiana has brought to the front again as Bryan's running mate, John W. Kern of Ind iana.- In this section of the country Mr. Kern is well known to politicians though unknown to the masses of the people. In Indiana he is known to everybody. There he has been a par ty wheel horse for a quarter of a cen tury, accepting party duty under cir cumstances which precluded any hope of reward. And if he is little known outside of his state it may be said that James S. Sherman was equally little known outside of the state of F. A. Carnal, accompanied by his brother-in-law, arrived from Havre a few days ago. Miss Beatrice Boyle, her moth r and sister left for Havre Tuesday morning. Miss Boyle has accepted a position in the Havre schools and will reside there in the future. Mr. and Mrs. G. L. Forge were v:s itors in town from Havre Saturday. O. B. Crane arrived from Butte on Sunday on a short business vis t a..d is the guest of his parents. In response to a re uest from the city mayor the business houses were closed from eight until noon and all the residents of the town with as many teams as could be spared were busy cleaning up the streets, repa'r ing and restoring damaged walks and other property washed away by the recent high water. A foot bridge has been bu:lt acrass the broken part of the county br:dge New York up to the time that the anti-Roosevlet element in the conven tion discovered and nominated him. The Sherman nomination seems to make it encumbent upon the demc cratic managers to choose their can didate for vice-president from one of the three states of the middle West Ohio, Indiana or Illinois. Ohio offers no vice-presidential tim ber since Judge Harmon has ac eepted the gubernatorial nomination. Kern in Indiana and Rainey of Ill inois, are fit subjects for serious con sideration. Rainey too has been a life-long democrat, a representative in cong ress for thre terms. During the last session of the Fifty-ninth and the first session of the Sixt'eth congr:ss he was particularly active in forcing discussion of the tariff and of trusts upon a hostile and unwilling house, IHis speeches not only sound well, but read well, and his devotion to duty was manifested by his almost contin ual attendance upon the sessions. Neither of these men is r;ch. And it is interesting to note in the midst of the political discussion here in the middle West that there is no longer any talk of selcting a candidatee for second place because of th3 size of his barrel. Both factions of the dem ocratic party have had a meloncho'y experience with speculation of that sort. In 1896 the ticket was weighted down with a rich man at the end, but the campaign fund did not prof t thereby. In 1904 the reactionarils un der the leadership of the New York crowd who ought to be shrewd in money matters, picked out Henry Cas saway Davis for the single reason that he was a multi-millionaire and could be expected to contribute lavishly to the campaign fund. The figures of Mr. Davis' contribution were quite as dissapointing as the figures of Judge Parker's vote. This year we will seek for brains rather than bcodle to car ry the democratic ticket to the suc cess which today seems assured. here for temporary use until the bridge has been repaired. It is ex pected that the commissioners at their special meeting the 29th will make arrangements for having it r.pair dr at once. Prof. T. J. Troy of Havre was at tending a meeting of the school board of examiners at the county sup erintendent's office Thursday and Fr: day. D). J. H. Russell left for Zortman Monday morning by way of the Mis: ouri river, having in charge a raft containing his automobile, lumber and provisions. His wife, sons and daugh ter will join him at their new home in a few weeks. Mrs. T. H.Larkin and W. . Chemid lin of Great Falls are in town- to at tend the Flanagan-Thibault wedding Don't Miss Lucke's Big Sale next week. COME TO HAVRE NEXT MARKET DAY Not to be dismayed by the rainy weather which prevailed about the time of the last "Market Day" the business men of Havre, through their central organization are arranging for another event of this nature and it will be held on Friday, July 3rd, as Saturday is the Fourth.
