BUTTS IN ON MEETING
WANTS L* FOLLETTE AND TAFT ELIMINATED—ATTACKS FOR MER'S PERSONAL AMBITION. Lansing, Micli,, Jan. 2.—Governor Chase Osborn took charge today of a meeting of progressive republicans that had gathered to hear Senator R. M. La Follette, who failed to appear, and delivered an address he had pre pared to introduce the senator, there by causing an outburst of complaint from some of the auditors, who ob jected to the uncomplimentary re marks of the governor in referring to Senator La Follette. The governor declared, as between Taft and La Follette, he preferred Taft as the presidential nominee, but asked that both Taft and La Follette withdraw from the race and join in nominating former Senator A. J. Bev eridge, of Indiana, or former President Roosevelt. When the governor criticized some of Senator La Follette's acts and dubbed him a politician who looked out for himself primarily, some or those in the audience yelled out that Governor Osborn had no right to make such remarks in a hall renteu by supporters of the Wisconsin sena tor. "Well, what did you people expect when you asked me to preside?" de manded the governor with emphasis. "You knew where I stood. Did you think I would allow you to censor my remarks? I am more sorry than you that the senator was not here, but 1 am more glad to pay for the hall it that makes any difference to you." Secretary Hannan, of Senator La Foliette's staff, called up the Masonic Temple, where the crowd had as sembled, shortly after 2 o'clock and asked that it be announced that the senator would not appear. When this word was carried to Governor Osborn he proceeded to the platform alone, and after stating that the senator would not be present, he explalnea that he had prepared certain things to say, and in view of the fact they were to be published, he saw no rea son for not saying them. In the latter part of the address a La Follette partisan in the rear of the hall began to shout, "Who is paying for the hall?" but desisted when sev eral near him suggested that he had better stop.' As the governor concluded, Frank Robard, state manager of the La Fol lette campaign, rushed to the plat form and shouted: "Stay where you are; the senator will be here within a half hour." At this the crowd returned to their seats and Governor Osborn added: "Good, I'll stay and introduce him." Band Plays. A baud, already hired, was ordered to the platform and played several selections while Robard endeavored to find out where the senator was, evi dently hoping to get him to Lansing in some way to answer the governor. A half hour later Mr. Robard decided it was useless to hold the crowd long er and again the people were dis missed. Mr. Robard criticized the remarks of Governor Osborn as "shameful," hut the governor asserted his right to say what he pleased so long as the La Follette people had invited him to the meeting. "I have known Senator La Follette and of him for 30 years, and havi followed his career with interest ana with varying degrees of admiration and approval. Makes It Plain. "Right here let me state, so that there can be no misunderstanding, that if be is nominated for president —which at this moment I hope he will not be—-I will give him my earnest and active support and will request my friends everywhere to support him with earnestness and devotion." Governor Osborn then referred to suits brought up some years ago in Wisconsin by the democratic admin istration against previous republican treasurers for interest, on state de posits which had not been turned over to the state. "Senator Philcus Sawyer," said Governor Osborn, "had signed the bonds of one delinquent treasurer or more. The statement is made that he stood to lose several hundred dol lars if the state won. The story is that he offered to retain Senator La Follette as an attorney in the case. Senator La Follette's story is that Senator Sawyer tried to bribe him. But Senator Sawyer never was prose cuted for bribery or cited for con tempt and nothing ever was done. "My idea of this matter is that Senator La Follette should have pros ecuted and punished Senator Sawyer for the criminal act that he alleged, or else he should have accepted It as a matter growing out of the blunted sensibilities of a man who had never had the polish of education or an ethical development. Senator Isaac Stephenson, pursuant to an agreement with Senator La Fol lette, started newspapers and other wise spent hundreds of thousands ot dollars in La Follette's interests. It may be said to Senator La Follette's credit or otherwise that he broke with Senator Stephenson as soon as he landed- in the senate." In conclusion the governor said: "I hope Mr. La Follette may be re tained in the United States senate for his entire life time. If he is made president his influence will be over In eight years, even if he is elected for a second term. If he stays in the senate he will be on the fighting line for a quarter of a century. I do not believe he can be nominated for the prealflencv. I do not believe he can be elected if be Is nominated. A Preno*l»lon. "O he reallv to Interested in pro fr ess|vp republicanism and In the welfare of the party l propose that he withdraw as a candidate, join me in asking President Taft to withdraw and then permit the party to settle upon Albert J. Beveridge or Theodore Roosevelt as a candidate for presi dent. I will go with him to either man. This will calm the conditions in the party, supply a candidate who has the respect and confidence of the people and who will present a front to the enemy that will be invincible. "In my own opinion Senator La Fol lette is not as bad as his enemies say he is, nor as good as he says he is." The governor was well received and was applauded when he suggested that both Taft and La Follette with draw and that Roosevelt or Beveridge be induced to make the race. Fault of Cabman. Detroit, Jan. 2.—To a Saginaw cab man is assigned the blame for United States Senator La Follette's inability to carry out his engagements to speak today at Lansing and Owosso. The driver took the "progressive" presi dential candidate to the wrong depot. News of Our Neighbors Items of Interest to Our Readers Clipped From Our Contemporaries MUSSELSHELL. (Musselshell Advocate.) H. H. Hunter, one of the pioneer woolgrowers of Custer county, was here Wednesday, from Miles City, looking for range for a couple bands of sheep he has been grazing near Baker. He reports the snow tlier* over a foot deep and the sheep are unable to feed through it. S. G. Gibson had Cliff Stinson ar rested this afternoon, charged with assault and battery, alleging, we are informed, that Cliff's fist came quite forcibly in contact with plaintiff's face, contrary to the statutes in such case made and provided and against the peace and dignity of the state of Mon tana. Hearing before Justice McFaul tomorrow. W. B. Cooley informs the Advocate that he is going to make a practical test at growing sugar beets the com ing season by planting anywhere from one to four acres on some of his old alfalfa ground. Mr. Cooley stated that he is not skeptical at all about the success of sugar beets in the Mus selshell valley, having had frequent opportunity to observe results around Billings in his travels to and fro dur ing the past 30 years he has been a resident of this locality, but he wants to demonstrate beyond any question of a doubt that his whole plantation is adapted to the culture of beets. While there is little doubt that nu merous other ranchers along the river, and some of the dry farmers, will fol low Mr. Cooley's example by planting a small plat to sugar beets next spring, judgment should be used not to plant more than can be cultivated according to rule. Mr. Cooley has been engaged in wool growing in this section for the past 30 years and he realizes that that business is about at an end, and as a business to take its place, beet growing appeals to him as the very best thing, not only as a ready money maker, but also as a booster of real estate values. ROUNDUP. (Roundup Tribune.) An early morning marauder, who had broken the glass and crawled through the front door of the Hendrix Mercantile company's store about one o'clock yesterday morning, was frightened away by H. S. Bruce, one of the owners of the store, who lives in apartments on the second floor. Mr. Bruce was awakened by the shat tering of the glass and made an inves tigation, only to find that the culprit had made a nasty getaway, after an ineffectual attempt to open the cash register. The sheriff's office is inves tigating the matter, but no arrests have been made as yet. A fire, start ml by an over-lieated stove pipe at nine o'clock last eve ning, resulted in the total destruction of the three-room house occupied by H. P. Nelson, in the rear of the Mon tana Lumber company's yard. No one was at home at the time the fire started, Mr. Nelson being at a union meeting, and the blaze was not dis covered until the interior of the build ing was a mass of flames. The fire department succeeded in preventing serious damage to adjoining property, but the building and its contents are practically a total loss. The loss will amount to several hundred dollars. A message from Butte yesterday alter noon to the Tribune brought in formation of the fact that a marriage ieense had been issued to L. R. Carroll and Harriet J. Russell, both of Roundup, and the suspicions of a arge number of friends were thereby confirmed. Mr. Carroll left several days ago for a trip to points In Wash ington. Mrs. Russell left on Tuesday for Butte, but denied to an inquisitive member of the Tribune staff that any .hing out of the ordinary was in the wind. The newly wedded people were among the first residents of Roundup, and are well known to a large ma jority of Musselshell county people. he senator, as he is called, is one of the owners of the Tribune, and is extensively interested in farming ir the vicinity of the city. A large per centage of the settlers in the adjacent country were located on their home steads by him, and he has been one of the most thoroughgoing boosters the city has ever had. 8TANFORD. .

Postmaster R. B. Cox received his ap pointment some time ago and has since been preparing the necessary equipment and facilities for accom modating the considerable business which will shortly be carried on at that place. Dover is the nearest point for a number of farmers living in the northwest corner of the Basin, who have, up to the present time, been receiving their mail at other stations, and upon these transferring their ad dresses to the new office, the current business will be of extensive propor tions. PHILBROOK. (Judith Basin Star.) Two cases of smallpox have de veloped in the country southwest ol town, but the names of the parties are not yet at our disposal. The uealth authorities have /placed the uiseascd persons under quarantine. Thieves broke into P. J. Hines' gen eral store Wednesday morning, about two o'clock, and carried away a lot of knives, cigars, tobacco and other ar ticles. The thieves are unknown, but a clew is being fallowed up that may ihrow some light on the affair. Dan Cupid made another inroad in to the ranks of our bachelors last week and sunk Ins shaft deep into the heart of one of our most prominent citizens. Cupid, like Death, loves a "shining mark," ana this time the wily kittle good singled out Dr. F. Edward Keenan and led him away to Hymen's altar. Yes, Dr. Keenan, our hustling little "Doc," whose best prescription is his own good-natured countenance and sunny disposition, has forsaken single blessedness and is now content to be a benedict and pay tribute to the young lady of his choice. The bride's name was Miss Ethel Marshall and resided at Wheaton, Mont., prior to her marriage. The knot was tied by Rev. Father Mueller, of Roundup, in that city, last Wednesday evening, and while this marriage was not a surprise to their most intimate friends, still the exact date had not been dis closed. The happy couple will reside in this city. JUDITH GAP. (Judith Gap Journal.) Will Stanley was a city visitor Sun day and Monday. He left for Hunt er's Hot Springs Monday and will re turn in about a week. Mr. Stanley has been working on the new rail road grade up Sun river and will likely secure a grading contract on the Great Northern road to be built out of Lewistown in the spring. Orville Buckner, of Nihill, was in the city Tuesday, on his way home irom Lewistown, where he had been to buy 160 acres of isolated land. Mr. Buckner has purchased the automobile formerly owned by Murphy Bros, and will use the car in getting over the country soliciting orders for the Minneapolis gas engines, for which Mr. Buckner is local agent. John Shuler, Jr., was a city visitor Saturday enroute to Stanford from Lavina, where he spent Christmas. He reports all of the family enjoying ranch life in the new buildings whlcn the colonel has recently had erected. John says his brother Freu met with an accident last week, lie had been hauling logs and just before starting out for another load liis team started to run and he jumped into the wagon. A loaded gun, lying in the wagon, was accidentally discharged, shooting Fred in the foot, causing an ugly wound. However, Fred will soon be around again. Joseph I. Liberty last week con summated a deal with Richard A. Har low for the remaining portion of the Geyser tract, consisting of about 11,000 acres, the consideration being about •285,000. The deal has been pending for about two months. The farming lands in the tract will be put on the market for .retail and will be handled by Mr. Cobb, the real estate man of Lewistown. The grazing lands in the tract will be utilized as pasture for Mr. Harlow's stock. The turning of this tract in a wholesale way has brought Mr. Liberty to the front in the real estate world and stamps him as a comer who will be heard from later in other big deals. Mr. Liberty bought the tract from a firm in Miles City, who purchased it from the Long Investment company, of Great Falls. At that time the tract consisted of 15,000 acres. As soon as he had ac quired an option on the property he visited Madison, Wis„ and formed a company among his friends, who took he tract over. The new company took possession about two years ago and at once made arrangements to re tail the land. About 4,000 acres of it were sold at retail at prices running as high as $37.50 an acre. The land is among the best in the Judith Basin and the purchaser secured a bargain in securing the unsold portion at the price quoted. FOR AGED PEOPLE.
