MERCHANTS' DELIVERY SYSTEM
MAT BE ESTABLISHED HERE
Henry Rumf, the man who estab
lished the Merchants' delivery at Hel
ea, is in the city with a plan to put in
a similar system here. John F. Abel,
on his frequent visits to Helena, has ]
been investigating the workings of the j
system there and finds it to be so
satisfactory to the merchants and pa
trons alike that he interested Mr. Rumf
in the plan of duplicating it in Lewis
town. Te plan is a very simple one.
The delivery organization collects
from every business house four times
a day. The goods ar eall quickly col
lected at a central station and from
there are sent out to the homes. It j
reduces the number of delivery wagons j
by haif and msures more prompt a nd ;
satisfactory service. ;

ADJOURN MIDDLE OF OCTOBER i
WASHINGTON, Sept. 30. — Con
tinued conferences airong the demo
cra t s j n p 0 th houses today gave strong
. .. . , .
inQlcation of the success of the plan
for adjournment of congress by the
middle of October.
Nearly all majority members of the
house, except a few'headed by Repre
sentative Henry of Texas, are aligned
with the movement undertaken by
Democratic Leader Underwood, with
the approval of President Wilson, to
put off the administration ship pur
chase bill until after the November
The proposal is that the house shall
begin recessing three days at a time
beginning next week, so most of its
members may go to their home dis
tricts immediately and that congress
shall adjourn about Oct. 15. The ship
ping bill would be taken up as soon
a special session called for the pur
pose in November.

battle between the army of General
Rennenkampf and that of the German
general, von Hindenberg, has been rag

THE SCIENTIFIC SWINDLER.
Oh, yes—there are new ways of fool

some of us are being just as easily
fooled as were our ancestors, in spite
of all the knowledge we have packed
into our heads. Sometimes we are
snared by the scientific swindler. At
other times we snare the scientific
swindler—just to preserve the balance
of things. Only the other day Samuel
Spitz was telling persons in Oakland,
Cal., that he had invented or discov
ered a machine whereby he could
throw on a glass disc at night the

FINAL WORKOUTS OF BOXERS
A thorougr.-y Interested gallery
watched the boxers wind up their
training at Irslinger's gym yesterday
afternoon. Interest centered, perhaps,
in Dummy West, the cave man, whose
wonderful strength and hitting ability
have made such an impression on the
fans. They all realize thoroughly tiiat
Dummy has the hardest punch of any
man ever seen here. The question
now is whether or not he will be able
to land it on the fast and scientific
McCarthy. For himself. Dummy enter
tains no doubt at all. He expects to
land and also to win. The chances
are, however, that he will find Mc
Carthy much faster than any of the
big men he has ever tackled. Dummy
has defeated, either by decisions of
knockouts, Kid Black, " Fred Beebe,
Red Morrisv, Jack Butler, Jack Price,
Jack Bcschotte, Tommy Fry, Tom
Watts, "The Black Diamond," Tom
Elrod, Ben Stevens, Lee Davis, Tom

at the end of 10 rounds. No matter
how this fight comes out, the battle
between Cyclone Smith and Phil Kear

for Kearney—well, you all know Phil.

NEUTRALITY NOT VIOLATED IN
RECEIVING GOODS FROM GERMANY
WASHINGTON Sept. 30.—No prin
ciple of law stands in the way of the
importation from Germany of sugar
beet, dye stuffs, cyanide, and other
chemicals needed by American in
dustries, is the opinion of Solicitor
Johnson of the state department.
Addressing a conference of repre
sentatives,of these industries here to
day, Mr. Johnson said export cargoes
from a belligerent to a neutral nation
could not be considered contraband
of war or subject to seizure if the
good faith of the shipment was estab
lished. Even arms and ammunition,
lie said, could be imported from Ger
many to the United States for use in
the United. States without objection
by powers at war with Germany.

THE EARNINGS DO NOT SHOW

With more unfavorable traffic con

waukee railway system in its last lis-!
cal year would fall considerably abort i
of the 1913 record. While there wera
rord crops in the road's lerriterv in

those ot the previous year.

$116,348,200 stock the year previous.
While this showing was very much
better than in 1912 it still fell short
of net earnings of 1911.
Gross earnings in the last fiscal
year dropped off more than $2,300,000,
compared with 1913. Operating ex- 1
Penses, however, were cut down over
$1,500,000, so that net earnings
showed a decline of only $747,457
from the previous year.
Since the Puget Sound line became
an integral part of the Milwaukee
system in January, 1913, the gross
earnings of the last two years have
shown a big jump compared with
1912. Previous to 1913 returns of the
Pacific const extension were received
into Milwaukee earnings only in the
shape of "other income." This item
has therefore been practically cut in
It is an interesting fact that where
as freight earnings fell off nearly
$2,700,000, the Milwaukee's passenger
traffic increased and earnings from
that department were over $500,000
larger than in the previous year.
