No longer do they expect the supply to fill the de mands of the winter. It will be a ease of bringing coal all rail to the Twin Cities und other points in the interior of the state, they said. This is true of soft und hard coal. "There is not a company with docks at the American head of the lakos," suld one agent here, "which could not clean up by January 1, if it tilled all its orders. But the companies will not do this. 1 am informed that enough will lie retained on hand to supply Duluth, Superior and the iron range. We could clean up now and have the rest of the winter to over haul our docks and reduce our forces." With bad weather setting in unusu ally early, there is no hope for a very great supply to come up the lakes during the remainder of the nav igation season. "Judge Ben Lindsey for Wilson!'

C„ ObsefVer says: "Of all the members of the United States senate who are this year seek 'Ing re-election, there is none who o r lg |* nul *- v reached that body under such "* ra t "* 0 " d remarkable circumstances the Hon. Henrv L. Myers of Mon tuna. The Montana legislature of 1911 (was democratic by a small majority, b ut the l ,urtv leaders at Helena, the , j eapital, were unable to agree upon a choice for the senate. Throughout til entire session there liutl been fruit less ballots. No candidate could com mand sufficient strength to win the prize. "V'lnally, the time came for an a<l ------ l"'" - ° f . senate for the ensuing two - vt "ars. A representative from a remote | Jourmnent' sine dlT TUemolion ' was 1" to be'deprived bur „ f tIlp „„„....."7, ! . Myers. Instantly the democratic ma jority solidified and as one man its members voted for Judge Myers, with ltlle r, - slllt that he was elected. No mini district arose and asked that the mo tlon to adjourn be deterred for a mo-1 ment. This was done and he nomin ated for the senate. Judge Henry L. in the entire state was more surprised than Judge Myers, himself, for he Had not been a candidate for the office and hud no thought of going to the United Stales senate. He was too busy at tending to bis judicial duties. But lie uccepted the honor, and his service of six years In that body has fully justified the wisdom or that hasty anti eleventh-hour action by the legisla ture. lie is without doubt the only man in the senate today whose elec tion came to him absolutety unso licited, entirely without effort on bis part and wholly without his knowl edge. There are few men in public life who have actually had such high honors thrust upon them. Most of them have been obliged to contend for their official places and with many of them the struggle has been long and difficult, but Myers enjoys the distinction of having a senatorial toga thrown about him when he was not looking for it nor thinking of it. He was simply the one man in the state upon whom the representatives of the party in the legislature could unite. "Although Senator Myers was un known to the country at large at that time he was well and favorably known to the people of Montana. He had gone there IS years before from Boon vlllo, Mo., where lie was born, and settled at Hamilton and engaged in the practice of the law. A year later lie had been elected prosecuting at . , , torney ol Ins county and two years; thereafter he was re-elected. Next he was sent to the legislature as a j state senator, where he won distinc tion for his sterling integrity and in-, dustrious endeavor, in 1907 he was appointed judge of the Fourth judi cial district of the state, and in the | following year lie was elected to the i same position for a term of four vears. i It was while lie was serving in that 1 capacity that he was called to ac cept the office of United States sen-! a tor. It was a real call in every of the word. i "The same industry and tireless ef- i fort which he displayed in the state j senate, Senator Myers has practiced in j the United States senate. One of the characteristics which distinguishes him from most of his colleagues in , the senate is the fact that he begins his day's labor at 7 in the morning. If for any reason he happens to reach his office at 7:30 he does double duty until lie makes up for the lost half hour. The superintendent of the capi tol complains that lie is the one sen ator who uses electricity in the morn ing. He lias offered to excuse him for that if lie would not burn it at night, but the Montana senator works by night as well as by day. The re sult of bis labors shows in his long list of accomplishments, particularly for his own state and the great west in all the affairs of which he takes the keenest interest. Since the sen ate lias been controlled by the demo crats. Myers lias been chairman of the committee on public lands, and al though that committee lias little to 1 do with affairs effecting or interesting ! the east directly, its work is of the : highest importance to the west. To the development and welfare of that! extensive region the Montana senator lias devoted his principal attention during his term in the senate. In eon- j sequence, he lias accomplished much ' I for Montana and all of the so-called ' public land states. "For Montana he procured the dona tion to this state tor the nominal sum : of $5,Otki of the extensive buildings i on the Fort Asslunibolne reservatipn, i ^n northern Montana, which cost morel ithan a million dollars, together with | 2,000 acres of land around them. The j state has paid the money and started i there a branch of its agricultural! school, thus giving that section a new \ educational institution. He has pro- ' cured the passage by the senate of a : bill to extend from five to eight years j the time in which homesteaders on the Fort Peek Indian reservation, in j eastern Montana, may pay for their lands. 'Here are sonic of the other things \ which he has done, which show what j a man who Is active in looking after 1 tlier interests of his section of the : country may accomplish by perse verance. "He introduced and enacted into law a bill grunting to settlers on u'n- i surveyed lands leave of absence for live months of the year, ns on sur veyed lands. "A hill to establish community cen ters for people on reclamation proj ects. "A bill to give homesteads in Gla cier par Uto those who had taken up land before the creation of the park, and without which they could not get patents to their lands. "A bill validating a large number of homestead entries tn Mpntana, where patents had been rofused on teclniical grounds. . "A bill authorizing those who made made desert land entries to take en larged homesteads. "A bill tor the sale of isolated tracts of land on ceded portions of the Ci*ow Indian reservation. "A bill to appropriate money to pay claimants on account of the Corbett i w*nm'w" J,'". pro: * ec '' , ,n j jzenship papers. "Tliese are a few of the measures,! for there are many more, which the Montana senator has fathered to en-! aide citizens to get homes upon the 1 land. Actually he has made it easier for some and possible for others to the ) number of thousands to become agri-1 cultural land owners and thus aid in 1 the development and upbuilding of the west and thereby add to the resources : and wealth of the nation. In further- j unce of this laudable purpose of pro j viding homes for the homeless, Myers ' this year procured an appropriation of $750,000 for carrying on the work of the Flathead reclamation project, wnich undertaking was a decisive fac tor in the determination of the North ern Pacific railway to build immedi ately an extension of its road across the great Flathead Indian reservation, thus opening up an immense area for settlement and development. Myers is also the father of the ad ministration's water power bill, which is pending in the senate and under the agreement of the democratic caucus [will be taken up and passed at the next session of congress, beginning in December. The Montana senator has been a loyal and consistent sup porter of every act of remedial legis lation advanced by the Wilson admin istration and lias aided in the passage of every one of tbe long list of meas ures which constitute the marvelous record of achievement of the demo cratic party during the Sixty-tliird and Sixty-fourth congresses."

The expectation is that the Milwau kee will begin laying steel on its ex tension from Grass Range to Win nett about Nov. 20. A long stretch out from Grass Runge is ready for the rails and once the work is taken up it will require only 80 days to get all the steel down. There will be 22 miles of track .exclusive of the sidetracks. Within a week probably, Contrac tor D. J.
