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
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
"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
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.

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
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 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.

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.
