VOLUME XIII. .iAMILTON, MONTANA. WEDNESDAY. JULY 15. 1903. NUMBER 38 NATURAL GATEWAY TO CLEARWATER THE GREATEST HUNTING AND FISH ING PRESERVES IN AMERICA. TEN HOURS' TRAVEL FRON HAMILTON Movement On Foot to Push Hamilton as Outfitting Point—Cut-Off Trail and Telephone Line Proposed. For some weeks past a movement has been quietly agitated among the local business men that may lead to __ . . . great material benefits to Hamilton. . We have the great Clearwater hunt lug district, one of the greatest game and fish preserves in the world, right f at our door, distant but ten hours travel; and the idea is to develop this resource to the greatest extent pos sible. This can be done at no great cost, and the returns will be many thous and fold. It will be necessary, first, to adver tise the proposition extensively in the sporting periodicals, and in such other mediums as to bring the matter con vincingly to the attention of wealthy men the country over, who every year are casting about for new hunting grounds; second, to make the hunting grounds as easily accessible as pos sible; and, third, to co-operate with the Idaho authorities for the protec tion of the game. The Clearwater region embraces a wilderness of mountains, lakes and streams stretching north and south a distance of about 200 miles, and aver aging about 100 miles in width. Great herds of els, moose, deer, sheep and goats abound within its fastness es. Bear, beaver, marten and all kinds ot fur-bearing animals are plentiful in this primeval wilderness. The lakes and streams literally teem with trout and salmon. All the grouse and game birds of the world seem to have congregated there—in short it is a 0* GOOD THINGS THAT FOLLOW IN ITS WAKE.

Every /ear a few parties of hunters from the East and Europe enjoy their annual outings in the Clearwater, but these are comparatively few—these rich game preserves have been given over chiefly to trappers and pot hunters who have ruthlessly slaugh teredthe game, with little resulting benefit to anybody. In many localities the outfitting and entertainment of hunting parties contributes a most profitable source of revenue. According to the last report of the Commissioners of Gaines and Fisheries of Maine, some 250,000 visi tors are annually attracted to that state by fishing and hunting, and the revenue derived from this source by outfitters, guides, transportation com panies, etc., amounts to between four and six million dollars. The figures from New York, Colorado and many .. ...... . , other sections tell the same story of . . . . , . . , . ' T big totals m material benefits. In none of these sections is their such quantities of game, and such a chance f or sport, as in the Clearwater, Hamilton is the natural gateway to the Clearwater. At present the Lost House trail is the entrance-way. By this route three or four days trave are consumed in arriving at the heart of the hunting region. We have it on the authority of Rev. B. C. Black, W. M. Bell and others that the Blodgett canyon trail is a much better and short er route. Rev. Black is positive that a trail can be cut from the mouth of Blodgett canyon, just across the river from Hamilton, to the first of the chain of lakes for $500, and that a wagon road to the edge of the hunting grounds can be constructed at small cost. By this trail the distance can be covered in ten hours travel. This road should be made, a supply station built at its terminus, and a telephone line connecting with Hamil ton should be maintained. The Clear water hunting grounds should be properly exploited and extensively ad vcrti&c.l Here'« an nnoortunitv tor vertised. Here s an opportunity tor t the business men of Hamilton-let j them grasp it and great will be the I resultant benefits. A Rose Wedding.

Missoula Giants Win. loan interesting game of baseball, played on the Missoula grounds, the Hamilton baseball team weut down to defeat at the hands of the Missoula giants. The visitors failed to make a score, while the giants got in eight runs. The game was witnessed by about eight hundred people, almost half of them coming down from the Bitter Root valley. The weather was perfect, and everyone enjoyed the game. There was one thing that helped the Missoula team win the game outside of its superior playing, and that was the rooting that was done by home men. It was stronger yesterday than at any of the previous games that have been played in Missoula this year. It was expected that the visi tors would have a lot of rooters, but all of the Bitter Root people at the grounds remained perfectly quiet, with the exception of a few who tried to answer some of the Missoula root ers. The Missoulas took first outs, and Hamilton went to the bat. Holt, the Hamilton catcher, was put out on sec ond, and Hottle and Steele went out on strikes. Andrews followed and fanned. Corbin then reached second by a safe hit and was brought in by a long fly by McCormick. Kelly went out on first. Mulrony was put out on second and Anderson flew out. The Missoulas then ran up their side of the score to four, while the visitors did not get past second. This was up to the fourth inning. In the fifth inning the Hamiltons failed to score again, while the Missoulas scored on Corbin running for McCormick, who reached first on a safe hit. In the sixth the visitors failed to score again. The Missoulas got three more runs. On a long fly hit by CanipDeu, Anderson and Kelley were brought in, and then Mulrony hit a safe one and brought in Corbin. This made the score 8 to 0. In the seventh, eighth and ninth innings no scores were made. It was an interesting game notwithstanding that the score was one-sided. The score: 3. 7; F. MISSOULA. AB. R. H. PO E.
