Musselshell News: The News un
derstands that after the first of Feb
ruary next the Milwaukee railroad
people will have control of all the
A. C. Graves lots in Harlowton.
This is an important move, as it in
dicates that the railroad company is
to take an active interest in promot
ing the growth of Harlowton. This
is an important move, as it indicates
that the railroad company is to take
an active interest in promoting the
growth of Harlowton. That it will
prove a powerful factor in the up
building of the town may not be
questioned.

Accompanied by Mr. S. L. Hodges,
of this place, he went out to one of
the Jap camps and held a meeting.
There were twenty odd Japs in the
bunkhouse and all were pleased par
ticipants in the services. The visi
tors sang religious songs in English,
and the Japs sang in their native
tongue. They also brought out their
Japanese bibles, and read some selec
tions from the striptures. Rev. An
shutz responded by reading the Eng
lish equivalent of the passage select
ed. At the close a collection was
taken up in aid of the proposed
Episcopal church building to be put
up in Harlowton, and the nice sum
of $1S in cash waa realized.

James B. Elliott and Joseph Ash
bridge, the two big woolgrowers of
the country south of the Snowies,
came in Friday on a combined bus
iness and pleasure trip. They say
that wihle grass is knee high down

native country, Norway. Sam's nu
merous friends in Fergus county
wish him oceans of good luck and
pleasure on the trip.
R. von Tobel returned Friday ev
ening from Helena where he spent
several days transacting legal busi
ness. While there, Mr. von Tobel
was intervieed by one of the capital
city reporters and was not backward
in telling of the prosperity and splen
did prospects of Fergus county. He
exhibited the true "booster" spirit
which it is essential that every loyal
Fergus countian should manifest, es
pecially whenever he gets without
the boundaries of the Inland Empire.
Mrs. Jacob Wcistaner, through her
attorney, John C. liuntoon, last Fri
day deposited with Clerk of the
Court John B. Ritch $10,000 in cur
rency and thereby carried out her
part of the decree entered a few
months ago by Judge Stuart who
ruled that as soon as Mrs. Weistaner
paid that sum of money into court,
William A. Shaules, defendant in the
case, should hand over a deed to his
interest in all of the property held
jointly by the two parties. Mr.
Shaules has thirty days in which to
deliver the deed.
A number of musicians in the city
met last week in Red Men's hall and
perfected the organization of a band
by choosing Frank Hegstrurn presi
dent and Harry Briggs, dirccter of
the association. A1 Mansell will be
the leader and instructor There are
a number of first class musicians in
this city and we believe that a band
in which all the members are work
ing harmoniously will be supported
by the citizens of the town. The
new organization has a membership
of fifteen and there are others who
can easily be secured.
Musselshell News: One of the big
gest ranch deals in the recent his
tory of this section of the state is
about being closed up, by which A.
C. Graves will become the owner of
the Ed Jcnizen ranch, in the Shaw
mut neighborhood. Mr. Graves is a
hustling business man, who has the
habit of making a success of his un
dertakings, and it is therefore only
fair to presume that his ranch ven
ture will serve to add to the measure
of his prosperity. The News is not
advised as to the future plans of Mr.
Jenizen, but it is earnestly to be
hoped that this section is not to lose
so desirable a citizen.
Instead of following the scriptural
injunction to turn the other cheek,
John Sweeney, a rancher living a
few miles from the city, adopted the
more customary course and had Ed
Lont arrested after the said Lont
had landed on one of Mr. Sweeney's
cheeks. The controversy came up
over the payment for some work
which lont had done for Sweeney
and when the rancher handed Lont
a silver dollar, the insufficient tender
so enraged oLnt that he threw the
dirty old fifty-cent dollar right back
at Sweeney, striking him on the
cheek. The whole thing ended in
the justice court when Lont was
fined ten dollars.
Louie Lehman, manager of the
Charles Lehman & Co. store, a few
days ago received a cash prize from
one of the big manufacturing con
cerns with which he deals, for the
very effective manner in which he
had advertised the particular goods
of the concern. A letter accompanied
the check stating that Louie's ad had
captured first prize in competition
with a large number from all parts
of the country. It is needless to say
that the ad in question was set up
in the office of the Democrat and
printed in this paper .the very at
tractive manner in which it was set
adding to the forcefulness of Mr.
Lehman's idea. In no less than three
instances during the past year, ads
which were found in the Democrat
have won first prizes in competition
with large numbers of ads submitted.
This not only speas well for the ad
writers of Lewistown but shows that
the boys who set the ads for the
Democrat are masters of their craft.
BROTHER VAN HOME
FROM MUSSELSHELL
VETERAN MINISTER ESTAB
LISHES CHURCH IN A NEW
COUNTRY.
W. VV. Van Orsdel, the pioneer
preacher of Montana, came from the
Musselshell country a few days ago
and conducted quarterly meeting ser
vices here Sunday morning and ev
ening and at Beaver Creek in the
afternoon. These services were well
attended. A deep spiritual interest
prevailed and some new members
were taken into the church.
Having spent the previous Sabbath
at the town of Musselshell where in
company with the pastor, Rev.
Samuel Fletcher, a new church was
organized which was the first Meth
odist church organized in the great
Musselshell valley. This is on the
line of the Chicago, Milwaukee &
St. Paul Railroad, which runs for
about 150 miles through this valley.
Musselshell is about 100 miles east
of Harlowton. About 30 miles west
of Musselshell is Roundup, the new
coal camp. The first religious ser
vice was held in the boarding house,
there being no school house or pub
lic hall. One large room was well
filled with most attentive hearers.
The homes here are somewhat primi
tive, quite a number living in tents,
it being so new that they have not
yet had time to erect more perma
nent residences. Harlowton and oth
er towns were visited on the trip.
The Coming Country.
Brother Van gives a most glowing
account of the extent and fertility
of the valley and the development
of its great resources on the advent
of the Milwaukee transcontinental
line of railroad. He also states that
the people all along the line gave
him a most hearty reception and re
joice to know that they were not
forgotten, and that the services of
the church would be permanently
held among them. He predicts great'
development in the near future in
this part of the state.
VISIT TO A BIG RANCH.
J. M. Burlingame Describes Short
Stay at B. C. White's Place.
J. M. Burlingame, who recently
passed through this county soliciting
subscriptions for the Rocky Moun
tain Husbandman, the pioneer agri
cultural paper of the state, had a
contribution in the last issue of that
paper telling of his visit to the big
ranch of B. C. White on Buffalo
creek. Portions of Mr. Burlingame's
letter follows:
"After an interesting ride of many
miles across an elegant country,
from the northwest corner of the
Big Snowies to the northeast corner
of the Belt mountains, across the
railroads that pass through the Ju
dith gap and across a country unsur
passed for crop production, and the
sceep and cattle industries; from
Rock creek across the celebrated
Ross' fork of Judith river and its im
mense broad flats, dotted with new
ranches, I came to the great ranch
of B. C. White. He was away and
supposed to be six miles up toward
the upper end of his ranch, but he
might be 10 miles away, up at the
upper end of his ranch, and might
be gone two or three days. So I
started out and drove six miles across
one of the finest outlooks of land in
Montana, and found Mr. White there
wrangling sheep. It was near night
and he said, "there is no comfortable
place to stay here, so you put your
horse in here; there is plenty of feed
and water and men to care for your
horse, and we will ride down to the
home ranch.' He had a spanking
team and had only passed a few lit
tle spring brooks and irrigating
ditches before I said: "If you had a
young lady in with you, she would
be hanging hold of your arm to keep
from flying out of the buggy." He
said; 'I always have to drive like this
to get around. I have another team
a little better steppers, and I have to
drive them both to get me around.
One team soon wears out, and has to
rest.' We made the six miles in 30
minutes.
Mr. White is a strong believer in
farm organizations, on general prin
ciples, and after hearing the outlines
of the Montana Farmers' Free union
it met his entire aproval and he
spoke especially and emphatically in
favor of the part that provides for
home school district organizations
and of the uselessness of going 10 to
30 miles to a central town to hold a
farmers' meeting. He also thor
oughly approved of the plan to admit
only farmers to membership and al
so the freedom from dues instead of
sending a lot of money off east for
a lot of irresponsible men to quarrel
and fight over. He liked the plan
of only holding meetings when there
was something to do and of holding
a yearly state meeting at which rep
resentatives of every part of the state
will discuss every question of interest
to producers of farm products in
Montana and be able to make known
to the legislature any and all matters
that we deem necessary to the farm
ing interests of the state.
SPY SYSTEM COSTLY.
Not a Great Deal Accomplished By
Men Looking for Land Frauds.
Washington, Jan. 12.— Commis
sioner Ballinger of the general land
office has completed his annual re
port to the secretary of the interior,
for submission to congress. He asks
an appropriation of $500,000 to carry
on the financial work of protection
of the public lands, an increase of
$250,000 over the current appropria
tion.
During the fiscal year 1905-07
there were entered of record for in
vestigation 24,459 cases of all kinds;
of these, the agents investigated and
disposed of 12,104 cases, and 12,355
cases remained for examination July
1, 1907. Since then the number of
cases has largely increased.
There were 1,243 land entries re
linquished after the cases were in the
hands of special agents for investi
gation; 353 entries were canceled af
ter hearings had been had upon the
charges; 367 unlawful inclosures of
public lands were removed, restoring
1,940,120 acres to the open range,
There were 27 convictions connected
with these cases.
The total of money recovered by
the government in all special agents'
cases was $386,271, and 2,372,224
acres of land was either freed from
fraudulent claims of title or released
from unlawful inclosure and occu
pancy.
The commissioner states that the
present force of agents is only suf
ficient to handle about one-half of
the work.
Moore-Powell Nuptials.
Inland Empire: A very quiet wed
ding was celebrated at the home of
Mr. and Mrs. W. P. Powell just
south of this city this evening, Thurs
day, January 9, when their only
daughter, Edna Mae, was given in
holy wedlock to Scott E. Moore,
youngest son of W. S. Moore, of
Greeley, Colorado, Rev. Emerson of
the Christian church officiating.
The bride was born in Adams
county, Iowa, but when very young
she moved with her parents to Corn
ing, Iowa, where they lived until
last year when they came to Moore,
their present home. Miss Edna at
tended the business college of Corn
ing, finishing the year before leaving
there.
The groom is a prosperous, ener
getic young man, formerly of
Greeley, where he was engaged in
the drainage business, but in 1906 he
came to Montana, taking a home
stead near Moore.
Mr. Moore takes away with him
for his life companion one of Moore's
most popular and fairest young
ladies. She will be missed by her
many friends as well as by her
parents.
The bride was dressed in a beau
tiful brown silk gown, trimmed in
cream silk lace and carried bride's
roses while the groom wore the con
ventional black.
They will leave next Monday, Jan
uary 13, for an extended trip in the
south, visiting their old home in
Iowa before going onward. They will
be at home to their many friends
after March 1 , in Greeley, where the
groom has a lovely home awaiting
the^ reception of his bride.
*1 he Empire joins their many
friends in extending congratulations
an;® may their union be blessed with
harmony and love such as only can
exist between perfectly united hearts.
THEY OPPOSE MR. TAFT.
American Federation Do Not Take
Kindly to Ohioan's Plans.
Concord, N. H., Jan. 8.—Opposi
tion to Secretary William H. Taft
as a presidential candidate was em
bodied in a statement issued today
by the executive committee of the
state branch of the American Fed
eration of Labor. The statement
says in part:
"We, the executive committee of
the New Hampshire branch of the
American Federation of Labor, in
sentiment and sympathy with the
membership of union societies in
this country, hereby declare our
selves unalterably opposed to the
nomination of William H. Taft, sec
retary of war, for the presidency;
that we recognize in him, through his
public utterances and judicial de
cisions and opinions, the arch enemy
of organized labor; that he is the in
strument and exponent of capitalistic
power; that the writ of injunction
which he upholds, never was intend
ed and never should be permitted to
deprive honest industry of its per
sonal rights; that we object to his
methods of campaigning as any one
man's man, however exalted and in
fluential may be his master, or wide
spread his own support and endeavor
and that we are determinedly and ir
revocably opposed to his candidacy."
REPUBLICANS IN BIG FIGHT.
Foraker Forces Combine in Ohio to
Defeat Plans of Taft Men.
Cleveland, O., Jan. 11.—The first
stroke of the Foraker followers was
made today, when, in a mass meet
ting, a committee was selected to dis
place the "regular" republican exe
cutive committee. The question of
the legality of the committee selected
as against the "regular" committee,
said by_ the Forakers to be a Taft or
ganization, now will be placed in the
hands of the county board of elec
tions. The claim of the so-called
Roosevelt committee, a third ele
ment in the situation, also rests in
the same position. It will be the
duty of the board to determine
which committee is lawful and has
authority to act for the party in this
county and to place a call for re
publican primaries, all on the same
date, February 11. The board has
until next Wednesday to decide upon
the merits of each claimant.
Many policemen were on duty to
day in the convention hall, in antici
pation of an encounter between the
Forakerites and the followers of
Taft, but it was as quiet as a Sunday
school convention and everything
went through unanimously and with
out a hitch. Resolutions condemn
ing the "regular" committee and
one-man power in the party were
adopted.
At the proposed primaries dele
gates to the state and national con
vention will be chosen.
HAVE TO CHANGE
THE PROCEDURE
GOVERNMENT STRIKES SER
IOUS SNAG IN THE LAND
FRAUD CASES.
Washington, Jan. 11]—It was stat
ed officially at the department of jus
tice today that there would be no
cessation in the prosecution of land
fraud cases in Colorado and other
western states, although the decision
of Judge Lewis have made it nec
essary to change the procedure in
some respects.
It is pointed out by the officials
of the department that, pending an
appeal from Judge Lewis' decisions,
which will be expediated in the su
preme court as rapidly as possible,
there would be 1 no advantage in
bringing further criminal proceed
ings on similar charges, except such
as might be necessary to avoid the
operation of the statute of limita
tions.
In cases in which there is danger
of prospective defendants securing
immunity by reason of the expiration
ot time limits, it is intended to have
indictments brought within the time
limits, but not to ask for further
trials until the pending questions are
settled.
It is stated positively that there is
no change in the purpose to continue
actively in the prosecution of land
fraud cases, and the only change
which has taken place is that which
necessarily followed Judge Lewis'
decision. It is also stated that an
arrangement had been made by
which the department hereafter will
turn such work over to the interior
department.
When the cases have been certi
fied to the department of justice for
legal action, either in the matter of
criminal prosecution or other pro
ceedings for the protection of the
rights of the government, the matter
will be wholly under the direction of
the department of justice and all
steps will be taken and all negotia
tions must be conducted with that
department and its officials.
The decisions of Judge Lewis were
to the effect that prosecutions of
land-fraud cases had been based
solely upon alleged violations of de
partmental "regulations," and that
there could oe no prosecution except
for violation of laws enacted by con
gress.
A CONSPIRACY.
Monied Conservatives Will Try to
Beat Bryan.
Washington, Jan. 8.—Alexander
Troup, editor of the New Haven
Union and leader of Bryan democ
racy in Connecticut, in an interview
today charges a conspiracy of big
interests to defeat Bryan, just as
President Roosevelt has charged a
five-million-dollar conspiracy against
the Roosevelt policies. Mr. Troup
says:
"At a recent meeting of the dem
ocratic national committee here an
effort was made to have the commit
tee repeal the long established unit
rule of voting. John B. Stanchfield,
ex-governor of New York, was lead
er of this movement, and a desperate
effort was made to carry it through
the committee. The purpose was
to repeal this rule so that the anti
Bryan element would be able to pick
up a few delegates who could be
reached in states whose majority was
for Bryan, and, adding these to the
strength of the favorite sons, prevent
Bryan getting a two-thirds vote.
"This effort was only defeated af
ter a long and hard fight under the
surface. Now, the opposition is de
voting itself to the fovrite son
scheme in order to line up, if pos
sible, a third of the convention
against Bryan. More favorite sons
will be brought into the race from
time to time, but the effort will fail
because the Bryan people know what
is doing. The anti-Bryan people
have unlimited money at their com
mand, but they haven't the people."
WHEN THIEVES FALL OUT.
Something May Be Learned of In
side Working of Great Trust.
New York, Jan. 9. —Claus Spreck
els, son of the California sugar mil
lionaire, who for many years waged
a trade war against the American
Sugar Refining company, has taken
up arms against the present manage
ment of the sugar trust in an effort
to lift the veil of corporate secrecy
which the late president of the com
pany, _H. O. Havemeyer, stoutly
maintained against the demands of
all stockholders.
Mr. Spreckels is a shareholder of
the American Sugar Refining com
pany, holding 6,500 shares of the
preferred stock. He asserts that he
is the largest stockholder of record,
and that the directors, so far as the
list shows, are comparatively small
holders. H. O. Havemeyer had only
136 shares of common stock and 60
shares of preferred stock in his name
at the time of his death.
Mr. Spreckels' charges against the
American Sugar Refining company
are sensational. Aside from the in
ference that the directors own only
a little of the company's stock, Mr.
Spreckels says that the company has
no surplus such as was stated in its
last report to the secretary of state
of Massachusetts, and that the com
pany has included in its assets a
dozen or so dismantled plants, val
ued at absurdly high figures.
He ascertained that the sugar trust
does not own a dollar's worth of
stock in the American Beet Sugar
Refining company, but was unable to
ascertain whether the company owns
stock in the National Sugar com
pany, of which James H. Post is the
a
8
acting head. It has been supposed
that the control of these companies
is vested with the Havemeyer sugar
trust. In its recent report to Massa
chusetts, the only state to which the
Amreican Sugar Refining company
makes a report, the surplus or re
$14 V 4259(X) the COmpany is given at
Mr Spreckels is the president of
the Federal Sugar Refining company
of \onflers, a $10,000,000 corporation,
in which Clarence Mackay, Dumont
Clark and George Crocker are fel
low directors. His determination to
find out in what condition the late
Mr. Havemeyer left the American
Sugar Rehning company is very ap
parent.
WILL REDUCE ACREAGE.
Southern Cotton Growers Plan to
Maintain High Price of Staple.
Memphis, Tenn., Jan. 7.—What is
probably the largest and most rep
resentative gathering of cotton plant
ers ever held assembled in this city
today at the opening of the annual
meeting of the National Farmers'
Educational and Co-operative union.
The delegates present at the opening
numbered several thousand and rep
resented every state of the south,
from Virginia to Texas and from
Missouri to Florida. The states par
ticularly well represented were Ar
kansas, Mississippi, Louisiana, Ala
bama and Texas.
Much important business is to be
transacted at the meeting and it will
probably be the end of the week be
fore the sessions end. Reports are
to be received showing the growth
and progress of the co-operative
movement among the farmers. These
reports are of a most gratifying char
acter, showing that in some states
more than seventy-five per cent of
the planters are actively interested
ln work of the organization.
The chief business of the conven
tion, however, will be to decide up
on plans for reducing the cotton
acreage and taking other steps cal
culated to keep down the production
to a level that will enable the or
ganization to maintain in the future
a 15-cent price. Reports will be pre
sented showing that in some states
the farmers have already arranged to
engage in a diversification of crops
to a greater extent than ever before.
With the aid of the numerous co-op
erative warehouses already estab
lished the union leaders are confident
that the campaign for 15-cent cotton
will be successful.
Sign the Pledge.
Omaha, Neb., Jan. 8.—Probably
the largest temperance movement
any one business concern has ever
known, culminated yesterday on the
Northwestern railroad, when a tem
perance pledge signed by 25,000 em
ployes became effective. An effort
is being made to have every em
ploye sign. The movement originat
ed among the employes themselves.
Three months ago, when the
Northwestern began cutting its force
to a winter basis, every man dis
charged was a drinking man, the tee
totalers being retained in their posi
tions. It was announced that the
road had inaugurated a policy of al
ways retaining the non-drinking men.
As a result, the drink men who
remained with the road have decid
ed to quit, and during the last month
pledges have circulated all over the
7,000 miles of the system.
The monster pledge will be sent
to the president of the road as soon
as all the parts are assembled.
