ROUNDUP WILL HAVE
IMMENSE PAY ROLL REPUBLIC COAL COMPANY WILL EMPLOY TWELVE HUNDRED MEN. That twelve hundred men will be on the pay roll of the Republic Coal company at Roundup within the course of a year or two is the opinion of General Superintendent W. W. Taylor of Chicago who recently visit ed the property. In an interview in the Roundup Record, Mr. Taylor said: "The development of our mine here is yet in its infancy," said Mr. Taylor, "and no one at all familiar with the indications at present can doubt its efficiency. It takes consid erable time and a large amount of capital to properly develop a mine of this kind and is not a task of a day. The coal is of a better quality than any mined in the state of Montana, the vein being of such extent that several shafts will have to be sunk. We are already projecting another shaft in the immediate vicinity, work on which will commence as quickly as possible and in all probablity more will be sunk later on. Roundup will remain our headquarters and all our men w'ill be stationed here, which will insure a permanent camp at this Niagara Silk Gloves $3.50 Extra heavy silk gloves in all shades of blue, and brown.

The slope, which was commenced last year, will be pushed through to completion, and when once in operation with the new machinery, a large amount of coal can be taken out.

We will employ from a thousand to twelve hundred men in the course of a year or so and the company is already taking steps to properly take care of these men.
