The tournament will consist of
twenty games, each man playing each
of his opponets twice, or eight games
for each mail Five matches will be
played in Fargo, Nov. 2, 3, and 4 five

The handsome championship trophy
offered by the Brunswick-Balke-Collen
der Co.. and the cash prizes, will be
awarded according to the percentage of
games won and lost. There is a cash
purse of $500 to be divided 50, 30 and
20 per cent.
At present the championship of the
northwest is held by W. F. Hatley, who
won the title and the trophy of the
Brunswick-Balke-Callender Co., at the
tournament held two years ago, in
which Hatley, Peterson, Spears and
Charles Clow of St. Paul competed,
Spears taking second money and Pet
erson third. This trophy is now Hat
ley's personal property, but a new em
blem has been offered for the tourna
ment this month.
The advance in the standar4 of bil
liards in the northwest is shown by the
fact that Hatley won the champion
ship two years ago w"ith a grand av
erage approximating ten, whereas last
year lie won one of the special tuorna
ments, in which he, Spears, Ferris and
Peterson competed, with an average
approximating twenty. Hatley is ex
pected to take a high rank in the com
ing contest. Ferris, the youngest of
the five contestants, has been making
averages of twenty right along in prac
tice. and is practically certain to get a
slice of the money. Among the local
billiard enthusiasts he is a favorite for
the championship. Peterson is playing
a high grade of billiards,, and should be
well up at the finish. Spears has been
more successful in match games than
in tuornaments, but he will probably be
well up in the summary at the close.

Promise^ lor the North*
western Billiard ToiirMy.
The billiard tournament which is 'to
be held in Fargo, Duluth and Minne
apolis next month for the champion
shio of the northwest promises to be
one of the most successful ever seen
in the United States, outside of nation
al championship events. The entry
list includes Charles Peterson of Far
go, W. F. Hatley of Duluth, and
Charles Ferris, George Spears and
Frank Billitcr of Minneapolis. All five
of these *rnen have been playing bil
liards of a class which entitles them to
rank with the best shortstops in the
country. It is probable that the win
ner will have to make a grand average
of over fifteen, since all of the quintet
are going well above ten in practice,
and some of them have made grand av
erages as high as twenty in tourna
ments or match games.

The Head of the Millers' Union Resigned Be
cause He Couldn't Control.
Paul Pioneer Preiii president
John M. Finley of the International
Flour and Cereal Mill Workers' Union
tendered his resignation of that posi
tion to the executive board yesterday
and late yesterday afternoon that body
accepted it.
Not one of the board would talk be
yond saying that Mr. Finley's resigna
tion was "acepted at onc6."
In a letter to the board Mr. Finley
stated that he had no excuses to make
and 110 apology to offer.
,"My one desire," said Finley, "was
in doing the greatest good for the
greatest number. M^ only hope for a
victory and the only hope the men have
is in keeping the ranks intact. When I
saw that many men were deserting the
union and many more contemplating it
I advised the three local unions to call
the strike off and return to work.
"My only regret is that some of the
members have questioned my personal
honor. I am fully aware that a certain
element is anxious to have me asked
for my resignation. That is unneces
sary. I hereby tender it, and I wish
the members all the success in the
Secretary Kellington of the interna*
tional union will no doubt direct the
strike for the next few days.
Finley was the first president of the
union, and is a young man. A bright
career in the labor world had been pre
dicted for him, and he has many friends
among the unions in the city and state
who regret that he has found it neces
sary to resign.
The prevalent opinion in Minneapolis
is that Finley has the matter sized up
right, and that there is litfte hope,for
the strikers. The men, however, will
fight it out to the end, they say, and the
present affair will only serve as an im
petus in the matter.
John Washburn said yesterday: "If
any of the old men want to come back
to work in the mills they will have to
do it before the end of next week.
There are at the present time 1.200 men
at work in the mills, and allowing from
losses through incompetency and dis-i
satisfaction there will be about 1,000
who will remain at work. By the end
of the week the places will all be filled,
as we expect to secure ttoo men before
next Saturday night."
Secretary Killington is authority for
the statement that the strikers will now
declare a boycott. He also declares
that the taking of the vote Friday and
the determination of the men to stand
by the strike was the best thing that
could have happened.
The packers and nailers declare that
they hold the key to the situation. Not
one of their number voted to go back,
and it is said that they will stand by
this vote.
There have been a few reports of vio
lence. but when chased down none of
them amounted to much. The police
detail in the milling district has been
increased, however.
The executive board of the Interna
tional Flour and Cereal Workers' Un
ion met. last night and elected A. E.
Kellington, formerly secretary of the
organization, to succeed President
John M. Finley.
It was stated after Mr. Finley's resig
nation had been accepted that the elec
tion would not be held for three or
four days, but the strikers evidently did
not care to be without a leader, so
elected Kellington, who lias been sec
retary for some time.
Hereafter all the sessions of the board
will be executive and no information
will be given to the public as to the
plans pf the union in the strik$?

"King Dodo", which has been played

Richard Golden, contains more pretty

entertainment of its kind which has
been produced in recent years.
told there are twenty-one of them and,
from the time the first one is sung until
the last one is finished there is not a
moment when the ear is not delighted.
The "Bumble Bee" song which is sung
in the second act is possibly the most
catchy of all, but "Dr. Fizz," Look in
the Book and See," "Diana,' "I'll Do
or Die," "The Jolly Old Potentate"
and "In the Spring," are all most tune
ful and well calculated to please the
most musicianly of the hearers. In the
second act of the opera there is intro
duced a march which is executed by
the prettiest girls that have graced the
stage in many a day. Of late years
these spectacular marches have been
eliminated from comic operas and the
return is most gratifying. "King Dodo'
carries its own orchestra.
The production is a very elaborate
one. Richard Golden is exceptionally
funny as the decrepit old king.

Bisitiarck Tribune At a meeting of
citizens of the city last night an execu
tive committee was appointed to manage
the forthcoming irrigation 'meeting to be
held in Bismarck. The business men
present subscribed the necessary funds
for the entertained of the delegates and
the incidental expenses of the meeting
and took the preliminary steps to make
the meeting one of the most interesting
and successful ever held in the state.
E. H. Wilson was made treasurer of
the committee and checks for an amount
sufficient to cover expenses were handed
to him at the meeting. The matter of
an entertainment programme was dis
cussed and some of the details mapped
out. The meeting will be held at the
capital. A barbecue will be one of the
entertainment features for the visiting
delegates and it will be the most scien
tifically conducted affair of the kind ever
pulled off in the northwest. Messrs.
Patterson and McGillivray contributed
a couple of fat steers for the event.
John iloman offered to furnish the nec
essary bread for the event, and other
liberal contributions of funds and aid
were made.
Reports received from all parts of
the state indicate the general interest
that is being taken in the irrigation
meeting. All counties are appointing'
delegates and the probabilities are that
it will be the most representative gath
ering of men ever held in the state.
The executive committee appointed
pursuant to authority given by last
night's meeting consists of M. H. Jew
ell, I. P. Baker, E. G. Patterson, F. H.
Register, A. T. Patterson, Joseph Hare
and R. D. Hoskins. ,•
