Cole, of Chouteau, and other well snown citizens from various parts of the state. The banquet will be in the nature of a celebration of the successful pro motion and organization of the com pany. The support which has come to the enterprise from the most con servative and influential investors and capitalists in the state Is unprecedent ed. In the few months since the com pany filed articles a sufficient amount of subscriptions to stock has been ob tained to meet the requirements im posed by the laws of the state to en able the company to secure license to do business. The idea of a home com pany, organized with sufficient capital to render its policy-holders absolutely secure and the advantage of keeping the money for home development, heretofore sent out of the state as In surance premiums, has everywhere met with the approval of the citizens of the state. The result has been that, the officers and directors have been surprised at the promptness with which Messrs. Sexton and Lloyd, who have had charge of the sale and dls tribution of the stock, have been able to report subscriptions of $250,000, the amount of the capitalization of the company. Hon. C. M. McCoy, state auditor and commissioner of insurance ex of licio, at the request of the officers of the company, nas recently made an examination of its books and records and has addressed the following let ters to the secretary of the company: Helena, Mont., April 13, 1912. Mr. Owen P. McElmeel, Soc'y Rocsy Mountain Fire Insur ance Co., Great Falls, Mont. Dear Sir: In pursuance of your request, I have this day completed a thorough check, to date, of all records in your office pertaining to the promotion of your company, and find in your possession subscription contracts in the amount of $217,800.00. The receipt and disbursement of funds in connection with this promo tion seem to be regular and the dis bursements fair, the moneys reported collected in excess of those disbursed being on deposit with the Conrad Banking company of your city. Yours very truly, C. M. M'COY, State Auditor and Commissioner of Insurance Ex-Officio. The insurance laws of Montana are very strict, requiring that at least $200,000 be subscribed before an in surance company will be given a li cense to do business. Since the date of the examination by the insurance commissioner, additional subscriptions have been received, increasing the total amount subscribed to approxl mately $250,000. In recognition of the remarkable support that has been offered to the company throughout the entire state by the representative business men, the fiscal underwriters have decided to tender a banquet to the entire mem bership, as an expression of their sat isfaetion with, and gratitude for, this loyal support. The company was organized Sept, 1, 1911, with a capitalization of $250, 000, and provision was made by the board of directors for a surplus of equal amount. The sale and distri bution of the stock commenced on the first of October and within six months the amount of stock required by law to be subscribed had been taken. In line with the conservative policy adopted by the board of directors, It has been determined to provide a sub stantial surplus before commencing to underwrite risks. The capital, surplus and reserve of the company will all be loaned to the farmers throughout the state to aid in the development of Its agricultural resources. The agency organization is being obtained while the stock is being distributed, and the company will be in a position to ob tain business from the start. The officers of the company are: Paris Gibson, president, Great Falls; LeRoy Coons, vice president, Great Falls; Owen P. McElmeel, secretary and treasurer, Great Falls. The directors are: Hon. Paris Gib son, Great Falls; Hon. B. F, Dillon; Judge John J. White, McHatton, Butte; N. J. Bielenberg, Deer Lodge; T. J. Walsh, Helena; B. J. Boorman, Great Falls; John W.

(Inland Emnire t ' _ P ® , Grove ranch, four miles j ^ town, was sold yesterday to kills Wilson, who came out here about a month ago from Geneva, Neb. The price paid was $45 an acre and the tract consists ot a quarter section, \ Mr. and Mrs. John A. Wilson and ( Mrs. Margaret Wilson returned the last of the week from Rochester, Minn., where they have been the 1 greater part of the winter. The lat ter underwent a serious operation at the Mayo hospital and returns much j Improved in health, Two cars of immigrant goods were j unloaded here this week. One was for Ed. Herold, of Waubay, S. D., who will farm some of the August Zastrow land, and the other for Geo. W. Naessig, of Webster, S. D., who pur chased 320 acres of the W. A. Cald well tract last fall, Emmett R. Corrall arrived here Tuesday evening from Butte in the interests of the National Life Insur ance company of Montana. He is dis trict .agent for Fergus and Meagher counties and will spend some time in this section. Mr. Corrall Is an old timer of the Judith Basin, having taught school at Utica some eighteen years ago, and the many wonderful changes that have been made since he left here are almost beyond his be lief. At that time stock raising and mining were the principal industries and to return and find a well-de veloped farming community with a half dozen or more good towns sprung into existence is something he hardly looked for. Mrs. B. S. Campbell, who has been ailing for some time, left yesterday afternoon for Chicago, where she will receive medical treatment at one of the large hospitals in that city. She was accompanied by Dr. and Mrs. S. s. Owen, who expect to remain in Chicago for about two weeks, j. c. Hauck bought the Frank Har wood farm, located three and one-half miles southeast of Moore, last week. The contract for the new Clary building to be erected on the corner 0 f Fergus avenue and Second street east was let this week to W. T. Sharp, the local contractor, and excavation work was to have been started today, The building must be completed by the first of August and Mr. Sharp plans to put on a good force of men so that the contract may be filled by the time designated. The building use d as a real estate office has been sold to Sam Anderson, who has had it moved to his lots east of the Chris tian church, where it will be entirely remodeled and used as a dwelling. Mr. Sanden has purchased the building oc cupied by the Gent's Toggery and this 1 will be moved to the rear of the lots it is already on. Mr. McElroy will, still continue to occupy the building j until such a time as he finds more suitable quarters. p. p. Stewart, who came out herej from Iowa two years ago and bought the Arthur Osborne farm five miles! southeast of town, has ordered a Minneapolis plowing outfit through E. F. Hersey, representative of that com pany in this county. The appointment of Patrick H. Tooley as postmaster of Moore has been confirmed by the senate and Mr. Tooley again enters upon a four-j year term of service for Uncle Sam. Already he is making plans for a number of improvements about the. office, including more lock boxes, dozen or two of new boxes such as are used by the business houses and w m probably have to put in more fixtures in order to accommodate the rapidly increasing business of the of ROUNDUP. (Roundup Tribune.) Frank Kirkstahler, pitcher for the local baseball aggregation, returned on Monday from Bozeman, his former! home, where he had been performing on the mound for the "white hopes" of i that village. Alleging that through the negli ' gence of the defendants he sustained injuries which will make him an in | valid for life, Dan Mclnnes has begun suit against the Republic Coal com pany, Geo. N. Griffin, M. H. Fletcher and Hearst Beaver for the recovery of damages in the sum of $75,000 and costs of suit. Samuel Cresswell, arrested last week on a charge of having set fire to a sheep shed on the Clement ranch, was given a hearing before a jury in Justice Webb's court on Tuesday. The evidence all was of a circumstantial nature and the jury did not deem it sufficient to warrant a conviction, and cresswell was released. Attorney Boarman assisted the county attorney in prosecuting the case and the de fendant was represented by Attorney Jeffries. Wright Harvey, a prominent stock man of Musselshell, has been arrested and taken to Billings by the authori ties of Yellowstone county on a charge of having killed a steer belonging to Handel Bros. Leonard Kirchof, ac cused of a similar crime, was appre hended in Cortez, Colorado, and taken I to Billings by Sheriff Orrick. The 1 warrant of arrest in both cases bore date of Jan. 16, 1911, and the sheriff's office had been trying since that time to locate Kirchof. Since the crime alleged was committed In territory now embraced In this county, It is likely the case will be transferred to Roundup for trial. PHILBROOK. (Judith Basin Star.) Geo. Nicholson, who has been in charge of the Basin Lumber Co.'s yard at this point for the past two weeks, returned to Moore on Monday to resume his duties in the yard there. Wm. Dickson, Sr., arrived last Sun day from California for a visit with his children in this vicinity. This is the first time in over thirty years that father and children have met, and the visit will no doubt be enjoyed by all. Homer Goodell has completed a fine garage on the lot on which he re sides. As he did the job himself, Homer thinks he is now qualified to take out a union card. The rain which began falling last evening and shortly after turned Into a snow storm, has put a check on all farming operations for several days. With the abundance of moisture that fell last fall and the moisture that has fallen this spring our ranchers ought to produce a bumper crop this fall. Mr. and Mrs. A. V. Pound returned yesterday from Rochester, Minn., where Mrs. Pound had been receiving medical treatment at the Mayo hos pital. Mr. Pound is one of our hustling ranchers from the Indian creek coun try and while away did considerable running around looking over the country, but says that nowhere did he find anything that could begin to compare with the Judith Basin. Sapphire lodge, No. 70, of Hobson, celebrated the ninety-third anniver sary of the founding of this order in this country. The members of the Rebekah lodge of this city, as well as members of this fraternal organiza tion from Windham, Straw, Moore and Utica were in attendance. A splendid program was carried out and speeches were made by Wm. Gordon, of Straw, and Roy Ayers, of Lewistown. A fine supper was served to the assembled guests after the program had been carried out. \ 1 STANFORD. (Stanford World.) Mrs. Sadie Hoffman left Thursday for Lewistown, where she will be de tained two or three weeks before re turning to her home on Coyote bench. Following the snow storm that set In Wednesday evening, Stanford Is entirely deprived of all wire service with the outside world. As we go to press no trains have arrived during the day and Agent Nelson informs us that the dismantled condition of the wires has prevented any dispatches being sent, leaving him without knowledge as to when trains can be expected. The fall of snow could well be called the "May" snow, but this one is perhaps more strenuous than those usually occurring at this sea son. However, nobody appears to re gret the abundance of moisture and It is considered that unless the finish ing of the maturing season is ab normally dry, the Basin is assured of one of the biggest crops in its agri cultural history. The Benchland baseball team re turned to their domicile last Sunday evening the winners of a clean-cut, snappy game that was filled with thrilling moments, spectacular plays and an exhibition of determination by both teams that left the final result in doubt until the last man was out in the last inning. The score was 6 to 2, Benchland crossing the tally pan twice in the first, three times in the third and once more in the seventh, while Stanford secured her .initial run in the first and duplicated the stunt in the second. Objections are frequently made by people whose children are compelled to travel over two miles to school, but in one instance among patrons of the Small school, three children, all under the age of eleven years, come nine miles every day. They make tue trip on saddle horses. This is an excellent example of the lively Inter est taken in the schools by people in this section and more buildings and additional equipment are being fur nished as fast as conditions permit. All of the schools In this vicinity are well patronized and much enthusiasm is always evident. By a vote of 46 to 15, the electors of this town declared, at a special election held last Saturday, that Stan ford should become a city and con tinue in Its position at the head of the new, progressive towns of the Ju dith Basin. Those opposing the meas ure, although comparatively few In number, were vigorous in their cam paign against It and It was not until a day or two previous to the election that success was assured to the in corporation movement by the added strength of a number of voters who had theretofore been undecided, or at least non-committal. However, the election leaves the city without any evidence whatever of a real or pros pective factional disturbance and the good sense that marked the efforts of the campaigners for both sides was consistent with the congeniality and harmony tnat has been such an im portant factor in the progressive strides made by Stanford in the past. BUFFALO. (Buffalo Review.) John Miller has sent one of his plowing outfits down in the Harlow lowton country, and the other one Is Budweiser AMERICA'S FAVORITE BEVERAGE More Budweiser is used in American homes than any other two brands of bottled beer combined. This proves tnat its superiority is recoa nized everywhere. j Budweiser bottled only at the home plant with crowns or corks ANHEUSER-BUSCH BREWERY ST. LOUIS Fred Pierre Distributor Lewistown Montana ' busy tearing up the earth in this vi cinity. The Washington postal authorities have notified the Buffalo office that the petition for a rural route from Buffalo, has, thus far, been favorably acted upon, and that an inspector will I be commissioned to go over the route and pass upon its condition. Ap parently the condition of the roads will be the only, impediment to the consummation of the establishment of the route, and a little attention from the proper sources (several sources, you understand) would remove the barrier. Poles, to be used in the construc tion of the Buffalo farmers' telephone line, arrived this week and were un loaded at once and hauled out to the routes covered by several of the party lines. All of the poles did not get here yet, but a force of men will commence work immediately on those now on the ground, and the others are expected in time to prevent a delay in the con struction. The officials predict ser vice within two weeks. Some of the young and ambitious members of this community have been speculating on the prospects for or ganizing a baseball team. A few have been rounded up who have hazy recol lections of having once been members of ball teams, and several more have been found who remember having seen games at various times, and with such promising material on hand It be hooves the aspirants to remove the butter from their fingers, lay In a supply of bushel baskets and tele graph poles, hire a book-keeper and then do their worst. Musical Act at Bijou. The American Four Quartette opened Sunday evening at the Bijou with one of the classiest musical acts that that popular house has had on the boards for some time. The Amer ican Four appeared in the American theater of Butte for a run of eighteen days and will return to Butte at the close of their engagement here. Any one who enjoys good singing will ap preciate this quartette. Four fine motion pictures compose the balance of the program for this change.
