STATE FISHERMEN TO BE SURPRISED PAST SEASON DECLARED TO BE BEST IN MONTANA'S HISTORY OF FISH CULTURE Seventy-six Million Fish Have Been Handled by State Department in the Past Twelve Months; Report to be Made Soon by J. H. Brunson, Fisheries Superintendent. When the report of the state bu reau of fisheries, covering a period of two years, is Issued in the near future, a surprise is in store for Mon tana sportsmen, according to J. H. Brunson, superintendent of fisheries. The season of 1921 and 1922 marked the greatest strides ever made in the history of Montana fish culture, according to Brunson, his de partment handling in excess of 76, 000,000 fish in that time. Of that number the only fish planted in the fry stage were grayling and white fish. All others planted had attain ed the stage known as fingerlings, none being less than an inch in length and many having attained a length of six inches. As a conserva tive estimate, Mr. Brunson gave the average length of all trout planted as two and three-quarter inches. "Fingerlings such as were the out put of the state hatcheries, and which were furnished gratis to the sports men of Montana, could not be pur chased on the open market for less than $15 a thousand," Mr. Brunson said. In addition to the trout and gray ling, which are considered native game fish, the state department sein ed thousands of gass and sunfish from the sloughs and pands adjacent to the Flathead river and planted them in the waters of the northern and eastern part of the state that were unfit for 'lie raising of grayling. Besides furnishing the residents of that section of the state with fish capable of living and breeding in the warmer streams the action of the hatchery department saved the fish taken. All had been washed into the sloughs and ponds from the Flat head river during the high water period, and had they been left un molested would have perished during the summer months when the sloughs dried up. To further the efforts of fish pro pagation new hatcheries had either been erected or were in course of erection at Red Lodge, Great Falls, Lewistown, Big Timber and George town. MOTHER!

Leonard J. Christler, and then shot herself, at Havre a few days ago. Rev. Leonard J. Christler, "bish op of all outdoors," outstanding man of his cloth in the northland, was killed at his home in Havre, one night recently. When Mrs. Christler, in an adjoining room, heard the report of the gun, she rushed into the room. Her hus band was lying dead on the floor. Over his body stood Mrs. Margaret Carleton, who had confessed her infatuation for the dead minister to her husband. Judge Frank Carle ton, some time before, with a re volver in her hand. She pointed the revolver at Mrs. Christler, held it there for a second, then turning the gun on herself, shot herself through the heart. That is the official version, as crystalized in the verdict of the coro ner's jury, which held that Mrs. Carleton, while temporarily derang ed, shot the pastor dead and then killed herself. The only eye witness of part of the tragedy was Mrs. Christler, wife of the pastor. She testified that she had accompanied her husband home from the Havre depot about one o'clock in the morning. Mrs. Carle ton came into the room. The details of the conversation between the three were not made public at the official inquiry, except that Mrs. Carleton told her that she (Mrs. Christler) had no place in the minister's life. Mrs. Christler's Story Christler went into an adjoining room. Mrs. Carleton followed him. Instantly there was the report of a pistol. Mrs. Christler entered the room to find her husband on the floor, with Mrs. Carleton standing over him with the smoking revolver in her hand. She pointed the revol ver at Mrs. Christler, then put Its muzzle against L-t own breast, and sent a bullet crashing through her heart. Between the flights of the two souls 20 seconds could not have elapsed. That is the story that Mrs. Christ 11er told the coroner's jury at the in quest. The jurors believed her. But Mrs. Joseph Pyle of Butte, mother of Mrs. Carleton, has taken issue with the coroner's jury. She went to Havre, engaged lawyers, and started an independent investigation. At the inquest. Dr. Foss of Havre testified that the bullet which killed Mrs. Carleton had an upward ten dency. Two physicians who examin ed the body for Mrs. Pvle assert that the bullet which caused Mrs. Carle ton's death ranged downward at a sharp angle. Armed with this information, Mr*. Pyle's attorneys have asked that the case be reopened, and the authorities of Hill county have the suggestion under advisement. Of Prominent Family Mrs. Carleton came of an old Mon tana family. Her grandfather, Major Davenport, came to the Btate in pion eer dayB, and was for many years a resident of Helena. Her father i* Don Davenport, also a resident of Helena. She attended school In Hel ena, and was a beautiful and cultured woman. She married Frank Carle ton, former judge of the judicial dis trict in which Havre is situated. She had become estranged from her hue band, and for the past year had been engaged in Chautauqua work, and was in Havre on a visit. In the mean time her husband had gone to Los Angeles and opened a law office. The Rev. Christler was a very re markable man. He was tall, of com manding presence, and possessed pblse. He was an eloquent speaker and a most magnetic man. He wee nnconventional and most human. He had a large circle of friends and ad mirers outside the church, and few churchmen stood as high in the es teem of the general public as did he. He accepted the rough life of the border country as a matter of course. In every movement that was for the weal of his section of the country he the to to to his of played his part, and it was a man's part, too. He had served a term in the legislature, and acquitted himself most creditably. Bishop Faber, the dead minister's superior, gave out a statement to the Associated Press shortly after the shooting, which was in part as fol lows: "I believe as a result of the in vestigation I have made of the tragedy which occurred in the Christler home early Friday morn ing and after questioning those who knew about it. that if this woman had been able to work her will on Mr. Christler he would be alive today, unfaithful to his wife, but still living." Frank E. Carleton, in a statement following that of Bishop Faber, takes issue with the church official. He said in part: "This attempt to make it appear to the world that Margaret threw herself upon this man and that he tried to remonstrate and lead her in to a spiritual path, has goaded me in to expression. Challenges Bishop's Action "Though he be a bishop and a Christian man, I challenge the sin cerity of his belief as expressed in the statement above referred to. The so called 'investigation' alluded to by his reverence must of necessity have consisted of taking a few statements from the close friends and protectors of the pastor, for any delving into HATTING SHIPPING AND Csm lgn unt THBHORTHWK Haut« HORTHWBST Sf—rs Dcofinf mi Turn mad Big Money ■/orH Muskrat andUVUf!

Is that the Christian spirit that was ex emplified by the life of Christ? Does such a statement come with good grace from the lips of one who is the temporal representative of a great church? "The great bishop refers to this poor girl as 'this woman.* "I wonder did his reverence know when he made the statement above referred to that this pastor who, it is now claimed, maintained only a friendly and ministerial Interest in the Carleton family, had written let ters to Margaret Davenport, my wife's maiden name, and sent them care of 'general delivery?' What oc casion for this subterfuge if his in terest in her was such as the bishop and friends of the man would have you believe? No Reflection on Mrs. Carleton "Let it be well understood that in making this statement, I intend to cast not the slightest reflection or condemnation upon my wife, for no one knows as well as I do the influ ence which this man held over her and which could reasonably be term ed hypnotic. Pray tell me, if this minister had practiced the teachings which he espoused from the altar, why this influence which he had over her was not utilized to save her from this infatuation. "Pray tell me why it was necessary for him to seek her out in Chicago and elsewhere? "I will confess to bitterness and I would have much preferred that this terrible tragedy be not discussed, but when a man in as prominent a posi tion as Bishop Faber sees fit to give expression to such a statement as is referred to above, I find it powerless to restrain myself from expression. I too have known of Margaret's love GOLDEN WEST isthe BEST BUY in CAT CREEK! BECAUSE—It controls a producing well, proving its property; (It controls 80 acres of CatgCreek land, proven to the second sands; It controls oil rights to 3,000 acres in the Black Butte oil district; It controls royalties on 15 producing wells in Cat Creek; It controls the oil rights on a 10,000-acre farm; It is pushing development work on its various properties. In my judgment Golden West stock is the best of the Cat Creek offerings. Here follow my reasons: There are only three independent oil companies, after the Standard Oil, holding any considerable acreage in the inside proven acre age of Cat Creek. They are the Homestake, 56 Petroleum and Golden West. The Homestake, with less than $100,000 two years ago, has de veloped a property worth perhaps $3,000,000. Homestake is earning well over 150 per cent, and its stock is selling at two and one-half times flotation price. 56 Petroleum has paid 300 per cent in dividends to its stockholders since it was organized about two years ago. Its units have gone beyond reach of the investor, $250 shares having sold for $5,000 and more. Both the Homestake and the 56 Petroleum have develop ment work fairly well under way, the former with 12 producing wells and the latter with nine. 10 Wells as Good as the First One Would Yield a Fabulous Income. Aside from its single producing well, which has tapped the rich second sands and is pro ducing 300 barrels of oil per day, the inside acre age of the Golden West is undeveloped. But this well proves the property. It also proves the existence of the rich second sands under the Golden West holdings, and demonstrates, in my judgment, that Golden West will become another big producer with the completion of additional wells. The character of its oil is most encour aging. While the market price of Cat Creek crude is $1.20 per barrel, Golden West oil is selling at $2.00, eighty cents over the ordinary price. What if we should bring in 10 producing wells, as we have every reason to hope for, and each of these wells should prove a 300 barrel producer? That would be 3,000 barrels of oil per day. At $2 per barrel this oil would sell for $6,000 per day, or $180,000 per month, or well over $2,000,000 annually. And we have room on our 80 acres of inside Cat Creek land for from 16 to 20 wells. How the'Golden West Safeguards the Interests of its Stockholders. AH of the Golden West eggs are not in one basket either. While we are most exultant over our inside Cat Creek holdings, we have 3,000 acres of good oil land in the Black Butte dis trict. We are drilling a well there also. We own the oil rights and more than half the sur face of a 10,000-acre ranch, which is favorably located. We own royalty interests in 15 of the best Cat Creek producers, including wells pn the famous Wildschutz farm, which are earning money for the Golden West. You have heard a lot said about the safeness of the royalty com pany. The Golden West is not only a develop ment company, with production, sure-shot acre age for further drilling, wild-cat acreage which is being developed, but is also a royalty com pany. From every angle the man who invests in stock in the Golden West is protected as far as protection is possible. Investors May Buy Stock Now and Pay for It at their Convenience. I am offering Golden West stock at One Dollar per share, the same price it was sold for before a producing well was brought in on our Cat Creek holdings. This offer is for cash with order. I am also offering it on the installment plan for $1.05, in five installments, 25 cents per share down and 20 cents per share in 30-60-90 and 120 days. This enables the purchaser to tie up a good-sized block of stock and pay for it while development work is going forward, and every stroke of the drill should enhance the value of the stock. I strongly recommend Golden West to my clients. In my judgment it is the best offering of stock that is being made by any company with any considerable holding in Cat Creek, the wonder field of the west Make your reservation* early, sa I have only a limited amount of this stock.

I will not further violate her confidence, but I do want to state unqualifiedly and unreserved ly that it is a fact that this preacher had led her to believe that he return ed that love. Pleaded With His Wife "I want to further say that I had plenty of opportunity and occasion to observe and study this 'big man mentally and physically' time and again.

But Butte, with a population 100 times less, had one up until one day recently, when humane officers took charge of him and started to find him a home. The lad, about 10 years old, has been a waif, unkempt and uncared for, since his mother died two years ago. He had a home occasionally, until his father, who in a smaller town would have qualified as the town drunkard, finally disap peared a few weeks ago. After that, home for the child was the streets, with meals as irregular as those of the proverbial alley cat, until with an old rusty pocketknife he attempted to kill himself.

The attempt at snieide was made in one of the railroad stations. As if to get advice from his mother the lad visited the cemetery the day previous and spent several hoars at her grave. When night came he sought the warmth of the railroad station, and when the hour grew late, decided to end his life.
