This weather does not remind one
much of baseball, but to have a good
team time must be taken by the fore
lock, and preparations are already be
ing made for getting together a team
that will give Roy another year of
fast. ball.
The Ball association closed last year
out of debt and steps are being taken
to raise money to start the team off
in good shape the coming season. The
boys need new uniforms and another
place for a ball ground must be found.
In this connection it would be well
to make arrangements looking to
wards some permanency so that ex
penditures in this line will not have
to be abandoned.
Curt Williams, who has pitched for
Roy for the past two seasons, will
be with us again this year, as will
also Bud Edmunson. the third sacker.
In addition we will have C. Eddington
of Washington, Ind. Eddington is an
exceptionally fast infielder and a good
hitter and will hold down either sec
ond or short. Mr. Eddington has a
splendid reputation as a ball player
back in Indiana and played a month
or so with Pittsburg, but was not quite
speedy enough to stick. In addition,
we understand, Russ Hoover, who
played with Denton last year, but who
is now homesteading near Byford,
will become a member of the team.
Hoover played good ball last year
and needs no introduction to the Roy
fans. The balance of the team will
be about the same as last year and
will insure Roy having one of the
fastest, if not the fastest, team in
Fergus county this year.—Enterprise.
HOBSON.
H. J. DeWitt, who returned from a
business visit in Alberta, Canada, a
few days ago, informs us that he has
disposed of his land in that country.
He states that he swapped 320 acres

27, north of the T. R. Murray ranch.

Mr. and Mrs. Frank J. Rooney re
turned last Sunday from Rochester,
Minn., where they have been for sev
eral weeks while Mr. Rooney under

an unqualified success in every way,
and there was a large crowd in at
tendance, although the bad weather
kept many from being present. The
committee in charge of the event is
to be congratulated upon their suc
cessful handling of the affair and
the supper served at the Kipe hotel

from Billings where he attended the
Montana Farmers' federation during
the past week. He reports a very
successful meeting, well attended,
though not as large a delegation as
was present in Lewistown. A great
many resolutions were considered and
adopted, among them the indorsement
] of the non-partisan league, with the
i committee of Montana directors to
| manage the campaign, who recoin
mended the use of a non-partisan pri
j mary ballot. They also recommended
that the educational advertising be
extended to all of the rural children
and that every endeavor be used to
increase the rural school facilities:
that the advertising of the high led
resolutions be extended to the people
of the state and that it was necessary
that the interest appropriation be
granted to develop these institutions.
They were also in favor of the state
owned terminal warehouse. The place

NOT FEEDING STOCK YET.
N>C. Nelson, of the XN ranch, on
Hanson creek, who was in the city
yesterday, states that while 1/e is feed
ing the calves and some cows, stock
cattle have been doing very well on
the straw stacks and in the fields
without any hay.
By way of added measure to the
horn of plenty with which Fergus
county was endowed during the year
1916, botli the Milwaukee and the
Great Northern Railroad companies
have carried on active construction
work, on the new arteries of com
merce extending eastward from Lew
istown. This region has been one of
the few in the entire nation to enjoy
railroad building this year, and the
operations have been on an important
scale.
While the Milwaukee finished the
last P*ece of its grade between Grass
f* ang £ an . d ' Vin " ett a . few '****
the Great Northern is still in the
midst of active work, and will push
construction throughout the winter
and the coming year, without letup,
Before snow flies in the fall of
1917 trains will be run by the Great
Northern from Lewistown to the Mus
selshell river. This is the prediction
made to a Democrat-News representa

with authority. The company plans
to have the entire line from Lewis
town to Fairview completed before
the close of 1918, and work on this
road will be prosecuted with no un
necessary delays from now until the
final completion. This is welcome

During the past week a locating
party left Lewistown to establish the
permanent survey and put in the
grade stakes from Weede eastward
through Dawson county. This sur
vey will follow very closely the tem
porary survey, as filed of record a
few years ago. In order to get bet
ter grades there will be some devia
tion from the original survey, but
the general course will be practically
the same, and the line will run within
a few miles of where previous reports
placed it. That is it will cross the
Musselshell river near Weede, about
five miles south of Mosby, and pass
near or through the towns of Sand
Springs, Jordan and Circle.
Burke Was Busy.
D. J. Burke of Lewistown was the
busy man in railroad building circles

INTERESTS BIG
MONTANA FARMERS WILL HAVE
THEIR INNING AT COMING
SESSION OF LEGISLATURE.
CONSUMER TO HAVE SHOWING ALSO
HELENA, Dec. 22.—Agricultural in
terests in Montana are to have their
innings before the coming session of
the Montana legislature which meets :
here for a two months' session on j
Jan. 3. Measurers dealing chiefly
with matters of interest to*tlie farmer
are in preparation for introduction.
Legislation probably will have to be
of a joint and compromise kind be- j
cause of the fact that the senate is 1
republican by a majority of 16 votes.
The house, on the other hand, is dem
ocratic by a small majority of three
votes. It is believed that the session,
therefore, will furnish considerable ex
citement.
Tlie consumer also is to have a !
showing, bills intending to reduce the !
high cost of food prices, being among
those to he Introduced. Nearly all of
the measures dealing with railroad
and flour mill regulation are legisla
tion in this direction. These, with
grain inspection measures for the ben
efit of the farmer, land loans and tax-'
ation will occupy a leading place on
the legislative program. :
There lias been talk of an attempt
to put through a law granting county
option on prohibition, to modify the
prohibition law, but it is believed uu*
likely that such an attempt will be
made. Leading attorneys hold that|ing
such legislation would be basically nn
constitutional since the prohibition
law was established by initiative.
The car shortage and the advancing
commodity prices are to form the sub
ject of legislation. Another attempt
to tax mines probably will be made.
An effort to pass a six-day racing bill,
with pari-mutuel betting privilege,
likely will be made. There are to be
measures of interest solely to women
since there will be two feminine mem
bers of the house.
BACK FROM WINNETT.
Axel Refer has returned from Win
nett where he completed the survey
of two additions to the townsite, one
for the Milwaukee Land company and
the other for W. J. Winnett.
Born—In this city, December 23, to
Mr. and Mrs. Will G. Young, a (daugh
ter.
sidetrack extension and betterment
work from Mobridge, N. D„ to Avery,
Ida, surfacing and bridge work on
the Chateau line, and some better
ment work on the Lewistown-Great
Falls line. It can thus be seen that
Mr. Burke had his hands full. On
he Winnett extension he employed
100 men and 265 teams, while at one
time on all his contracts he had l,500
men working.
The Winnett Extension.
Dirt began to fly on the Milwaukee
extension from Grass Range to Win
nett on August 29. Now the roadbed
is ready for the steel gang, and some
may be laid this winter. When the
steel finally gets to Winnett, now a
thriving inland town, there will he a
dir in business and realty circles
there and in the surrounding coun
try. Already the demand is increas
ing for lands in eastern Fergus.
A much better roadbed than first
plans called for has been put in from
Grass Range to Winnett, which can
bo seen from the fact that the origin
al plans called for a removal of 250,
000 yards of dirt, and the work as
done resulted in the removal of 420,
)00 yards, in the total distance of 23
miles between the two towns.
Us e Same Tracks.
An agreement for the temporary
use of the same tracks from Grass
Range Junction, two miles oast ot
Grass Range, where the two roads
converge, to Weede. has been reached
by the Milwaukee and the Great
Northern. This is a distance of 46
miles. At or near Weede the roads
will have separate tracks, the Mil
waukee running southward down the
Musselshell to Melstono, joining the
present main line at that point. The
Great Northern will swing northward
through Dawson county.
At the Tunnels.
The heaviest work of the Great
Northern lias been done at the Mc
Donald creek divide, where two tun
nels are being bored. Work is pro
ceeding on both of tlie tunnels, one
800 feet in length and the other 3,200
feet. Grading is also being done be
tween this, city and Cheadle, about
18 miles east. The track has been laid
for about five miles, so as to make the
haul of material and supplies to the
tunnel a shorter one. Six camps are
established and 400 men are employed
in the construction work. Tlie head
er for the smaller tunnel, which is
the closest to this city, lias been com
pleted, and the bench in the longer
tunnel is being taken out. The square
is 28 feet by 28 feet, and the distance
from the floor to the top of header is
40 feet. Substantial timbering is be
ing installed as work progresses.
Chief Engineer Walker is looking aft
er tlie work, and the contracting firm
on tlie job is Guthrie, Riley & Co.
Tlie Lewistown-New Rockford cut
off will be one of the main lines of
tlie Great Northern and will make a
shorter and more direct route between
the Twin Cities and the coast. The
grades along the new line are very
slight, except in the crossing of the
McDonald creek divide and even there
they are not severe. Another tiinnnel
will-lie required in Dawson county,
a short distance east of Soda Springs,
! through a small and outlying section
of the Sheep hills.
The roadbed will be of the best and
j most permanent kind, anil in every
. way the new line will he first-class,
built with the view of running trains
- up to 60 miles per hour.

CHICAGO GRAIN.
CHICAGO, Dec. 27. -Estimates that
export sales in the last 24 hours had
reached an aggregate of 2,000,000
bushels or more, brought about sharp
advances today in the wheat market
here. Closing prices, although unset
tled, were 3 cents to 6 7 s cents net
higher, witli May at $l.73%4i 1.73%,
and July at $1.41 %@l.41%. Corn
showed a net gain of % to I r \s cent
and oats off % to %@ % cent. In
provisions the outcome varied from
15 cents decline to a rise of 5 cents.
Falling off in the world's available
supply total had considerable effect
in spreading bullish sentiment in the
wheat pit. The decrease formed a
striking difference from the immense
enlargements last week and a year
ago. It was pointed out that world
