Great Falls, Mont., July 16.—End of the city employes' strike came this morning when all men returned to work at the scale proposed by the city to go into effect June 31, ex cept that now old employes are working side by side with the non union men, after 45 days of battle. 150 Men Walk Out. When the city employes walked out June 1, it was because of a cut in wages for common labor from $5.50 to $4.50 per day and $5.50 to $5.00 for garbage men and drivers. About 150 went out. A few days ago a crew was put on in the city parks, and later crews were put on hauling gar bage and in the boulevards. An ar bitration committee was named by the city council Monday night last, and at a time when the strike seam ed broken. Fire Hose Quells Mob. Yesterday morning men reported everywhere for work in the depart ments which culminated in a near riot when the strikers stormed the police station with eggs and decayed vege tables, only to meet with streams of water from the fire hose and finally to disperse on announcement of Roy M. Armour, mayor, to a committee that all old men would Lie taken on at the scale fixed by the city, and to work with the strikebreakers, 'this had beeen offered from the first. Egg Stains Washed Away. The same decision was reached by the arbitration committee shortly after and this morning the two hundred men started working in the different de partments, all of the old men being put on who applied and working side by side with the new men. There was no demonstration of any kind, the police were withdrawn, eggs washed off the police station walls, suits of officers and special officers sent to the cleaners, and work went on as though never interrupted. Secret Organization In South Regulates Morals Dallas, Tex., July 18.—Authorities in widely separated sections of the southern states today are taking cog nizance of a series of attacks in which the victims are tarred and feathered, apparently by widely organized secret groups. The instances now number a score or more within the last three months and indicate the existencec of a secret organization similar to that of the Klu Klux Klan of reconstruc tion days.

GASOLINE PRICE IS CONDEMNED Rales In Montana "Intolerable" Ac cording to Railroad Commis Relief Asked. sion Helena, July 14.—Branding gaso line prices in Montana as "intol able." the state railroad commission Thursday formally requested the Fed eral Trade Commission to make a thorough investigation of prices and of the competitive situation here. The state board urges that immediate ac tion be taken. Statistics gathered in a probe which has been in progress two weeks are submitted by the state board with its request to the federal body. Gasoline in Montana cities is sold at from 28 cents to 33 cents per gallon. The charge is made by the state board that in competitive fields, gasoline is re tailed at 17 cents to 19 cents. Reference is made in the state's request to the decreases in Montana crude petroleum prices without cor responding drops in the manufactured prices. In the Cat Creek field, the commission says, the price of crude oil was originally placed at $3 a bar rel. It has been reduced gradually until $1 a L>arrel is now the base price. The Cat Creek oil, the commission asserts, carries a very high gasoline content. It is refined just over the Montana state line in Wyoming and shipped back here for sale at the prices to which objection is made. while in other places where Texas and Oklahoma competition is met, it is al leged, the price is set at a smaller figure.

The geological work on the Bowes structure was very thoroughly done and a long time was spent by the geologists in examining the dome and making their surveys. The promoters of the proposition express great confidence in the correctness of the conclusions of the geologists and in the possibilities of the structure.

It was alleged that the woman was a bigamist. The attack was said t o have been made by men wearing white uniforms. According to information the au thorities have, Mrs. Johnson had been married three times, the first hus band being dead, while the other two are still living. The third marriage, it was said, took place within the last 18 months. R. F. Scott, World War veteran was dumped from an automobile in a coat of tar and feathers at Beaumont, Tex., on Saturday.

Swimming Pool Will Be a Factor in Life Saving Claude Hague, age 13, had a very narrow escape from drowning, in the Milk River, while bathing last, Thursday afternoon. That he did not drown, is due to the presence of mind of his boy companions, Stanley Ka linski, and Earl Rudberg, both of them about Hague's age, who at the risk of their own lives bravely res cued him. The incident is only one of the many similar ones which occur annually, to bathers in the river, at Glasgow. Some day, perhaps tomorrow, a near drowning may not end so hapnily. Every river, lake and ponnd in the nation, takes its yearly toi! of Hves most of them of the young—the lov ed sons and daughters of proud par-I ents. Perhaps it will be the child of a doting Glasgow parent, who will be next sacrificed; the lure to the young is there, the cool water calls on the hot summer days, grim death drags them under and that is its end. In many, in most cases, in Glasgow, nothing has been done to guard these precious young lives. Let it be borne in mind that the young folks are not to blame. Who is to blame? VALLEY COUNTY CORN COUNTRY Commissioner Davis Has Confidence In Future of the Country— Praises Crops. On his return to Helena from his recent visit to Glasgow, Commission er Chester C. Davis said, in an in terview with the Independent: "There is a great future for corn in sections of Montana east of the Rocky Mountains," Mr. Davis said. "As a rule, a bad wheat year is a good corn year and, likewise, a good wheat year is also a good corn year. Corn comes nearer being a depend able forage crop than any other. On dry land low levels corn will even beat the sunflower crop. Horses Coming Back. "There are wonderful crops in Valley county. In fact, the crops are in good condition all along the high line east of Havre, and are good in spots west of Havre. I was ex tremely pleased to see that the horses have come back. At the farm bureau meeting at Glasgow, farmers came from thirty miles around and over half of them traveled with horses. This is a good sign in my opinion. It is a most hopeful sign. I traveled some distance along the road going to the meeting and we met four or five teams to one automobile. Good Dry-Land Corn. "The acreage in that section is about 35 per cent less than the high level of 1918. The farmers up there are feeling very optimisticc over the crop outlook and are only anxious about the freight rate situation.

The gathering | i had the elements of jollification.

President Peter Peterson, of Glas gow, called the meeting to order at about 2 o'clock, and in a few eloquent remarks, congratulated those present on being one of the liest of the sub ordinate organizations of the farm bureau which had achieved success un der most adverse conditions. He pre dicted that the Farm Bureau would go a long way, towards the farmer's success. He said that many of the membership believed with him, in Mon tana, in which he had never lost faith, and which he still considered literally a treasure state, for the farmers as well as others. President Peterson then introduced Chester C. Davis, of Helena, State Commissioner of Agriculture. First Speech to Farmers. Mr. Davis opened his remarks with the statement that this was the first occasion since he had taken office, when he had accepted an invitation to speak to a gathering.of farmers; that the acquaintance he had with President Peterson, and the insistance of Mr. Stebbins, had caused him to break the rule, and to enjoy the pleas ure it was to him to meet the Valley county farmers. With no pretention to oratory Mr. Davis vividly portrayed existing conditions, as they affected Within the last two years there have been six narrow escapes from drowning while bathing in the river. If from any other cause, so many of our citizens had been near violent death, something would have been done about it. The only way to con trol the present situation, would be by life guards continually on duty, and this would be only partially ef fective. The movement launched by the fire men, and now being agitated by oth ers, for a swimming pool at the Tour ists park for public use, seems very feasible and appeals at this time to many as the one and only plan, which accomplished, will save the lives of the young and be a healthful and at (tractive adjunct to community life, ! and which under the circumstances should be carried through at once, j In a somewhat haphazard canvass of j citizens, we have found no objection i to the general plan; there are many who express doubt as to whether it ' can be financed and this subject is the one which should receive the first at tention. The pool should be well constructed,! ILLINOIS GOVERNOR INDICTED Springfield, 111., July 20.—In dictments charging Governor Small, Lieutenant Governor F. E. Sterling and Vernon Curtis with embezzlement, conspiracy and op eration of a confidence game, were returned by the Sangamon county grand jury Wednesday afternoon. Bonds of all three were fixed at $50.000 on each count. On the first indictment the gov ernor, lieutenant and Curtis were charged with embezzlement of $700,000. The indictment for conspiracy confidence games charges that the three obtained "drivers drafts, warrants, vouchers and documents to the amount of two million dol lars." farm bureau..

"GOVERNOR" BUD STORY ON JOB AT HELENA Lieutenant Governor Nelson Story, Jr., has arrived from Bozezmari ar;J is directing the affairs ef state from the executive offices at the capitol.

His talk was easily understandable and appealed to the ordinary, business sense of those who heard him, in a way which convinced them that Gov ernor Dixon had made no mistake in the choice of the State Commissioner of Agriculture. After outlining the organization of Iiis department under the new law creating it, Mr. Davis said in part: Tribute to Pioneers. "Montana is anxious to honor the pioneers, who over fifty years ago, opened up this country to a develop ment that gave homes to thousands of people from other states. The man, who in 1805, loaded his household *•—'goods into a prairie j the world j no more adn j er eontrihut I west than 118-19 and _ j "The eai , found a re;, schooner and ame overland to make his home with his family in some of the mountain valleys of the new territory, had a measure of determination and daring that has come to be associated with the term, pioneer.

He added to his original land claims and in many cases saw his family settled about him in a considerable community.

In cost of such a plant would not exceed a few hundred dollars, and when we come to balance the dollars, with the lives that may be saved, and the health and happiness that will result, we feel shamed by the comparison. One father has already volunteered to donate $100 for the purpose, and there are doubtless many others who would do the same, if given the op portunity. Besides, the city teams have spare time in which the excavating could be done; there are many who would donate and haul gravel, and the Courier ventures the assertion that much other material would be fur nished at cost, and labor for nothing, The plan for a swimming pool is one which parents should agitate now; a pool might save a son or daughter to them. It should appeal to others as a means of personal enjoyment and to all good citizens as something which Glasgow should have as a help to healthful and safe community life, Let's st art a swimming pool clcub. CURFEW OMIT TED UNTIL FALL City Will Save Coal By Relying On Oil Burner—Get Out Your Candles. After August first the curfew will not sound until in the fall. The reason is that during the next couple of months there will be no steam at the city power and light plant. When asked regarding the matter City Manager Mitchell said, "by cut ting out the steam at this time of the year the city saves, in coal from $15 to $20 per day, and in the present con dition of the city finances, this is something that the council cannot ov erlook, as it amounts to a very sub stantial saving. People can easily get along without the whistles and I think this is the only inconvenience that will result." Mr. Mitchell also said that the light, water, power, etc., would be taken care of by the Deissel oil burner, and that it would be well enough for citi zens to have candles or other lights handy, as it was barely possible that it might be out of commission for sev eral minutes, should anything occur. Troubles are generally found and remedied in a very few minutes, but there wili,be no auxilliarv engine, as formerly, to keep the lights on while the trouble shooter is at work.

There were Indians and bad men in those days, but the pioneer of today, who is founding a new type of farm ing and a new line, has problems more formidable than Indians and outlaws. Montana along with other farming communities has passed into the day of specializing in farming. It is no long the object of the farmer to pro duce all that is required to supply his needs at home, but is his aim to grow along with those thing required at home, crops which can be converted into cash or exchanged for other com modities. The problem which he faces today was not one that puzzled the early pioneer. It is the question of marketing to advantage his surplus of wheat, wool, beef, potatoes and other crops. Farmers Groggy. "Four successive crop failures have failed to stop the effort of the mod ern pioneer, but he is groggy from the effects of a knockout blow deliv ered last summer and if something is not done to revive him the effect threatens to be as disastrous as the blow which Carpentier received on the second of July. In the case of the Frenchman, it was a succession of body blows followed by blows to the jaw that put him out. The Amer ican farmers were staggered by three successive blows delivered between the months of June and September, 1920. First came the deflation of farm prices as the result of the de cision of financial powers that the farmers should be brought down first in the campaign to reduce prices. Immediately thereafter came the par alysis of farm credits and finally on August 2(i, 1920, the permission to the railoads to make a horizontal in crease in percentage of freight rates of from twenty-five to forty percent. Dean Davenport of the University of Illinois summarizes the lessons which the last ten years have taught the farmers in this paragraph: 'The ex perience of the last ten years has taught farmers that the cost of pro duction is of more importance than yield, that production is costly and hazardous; that our marketing ma chinery is inadequate for the pro gress "and complexity of the business and that a credit system built up for • ommeroial purposes is not adapted to agriculture purposes.'

Dates August 8-13. Advance information on the Ellison White Chautauqua program for the season indicates a week of lectures, entertainment and music that should please "Chautauqua fans". The dates for Glasgow have been definitely set for August 8th to 13th. A musical event of unusual import ance is scheduled in the coming of the Mary Adel Hays Grand Opera Sing ers, under the leadership and direction of Mary Adel Hays, prominent New Y'ork coloratura soprano. The per sonnel is a notable one; including Ruth Pearcy, contralto, Claude Schell, tenor, and John Wainman, baritone. All are soloists of distinction, each one abundantly capable of presenting a full concert alone. Familiar selec tions and excerpts from light and grand opera will be featured in their two concerts on the last day. Lucile Collette, distinguished French violinist, who came to America as a war refugee in 1914, is another artist of prominence to be presented during the week. Mlle. Collette is under con tract with one of America's leading phonograph companies and is rated as one of the foremost concert violinists in the country today. She comes to Chautauqua as a member of the Lowell Patton Company. Mr. Patton needs no introduction to Western Chautau qua audiences. He has just returned from a highly successful concert tour in New Zealand. Lula Root, former ly contralto of the Washington Opera Company, rounds out this splendid artists trio. Other musical companies scheduled for double concerts during the week are the Liberty Belles of Boston, the Alexander Trio and the .stone-Platt-Bragers Trio. Among the lecturers scheduled for the assembly are Dean Ellwood C. Perisho, late president of the State College of South Dakota and Educa tional Administrator of the A. E. F.; Dr. E. L. House, prominent author and psychologist; Dr. Robert Parker Miles, one of the foremost dramatic lecturers on the American platform; E. B. Fish, the editor of "Labor and Industry", and Chief Strongheart, noted Indian lecture-entertainer. Two other feature events of the week will be the presentation of the great comedy success, "It pays to Ad vertise", by the Keighly New Y'ork Players with an all-professional cast and the coming of Electra Piatt, the noted monologist, as one of the mem bers of the Ston-Platt-Bragers Trio. Electra Piatt was formerly on the Orpheum and is said to be one of the funniest and cleverest women before the public today, p op | ar Butchered In a Merry Game "TO MAKE A GLAS GOW HOLIDAY" That Showed Little Ball But Much Fun.

Poplar's gloom dispeller's, are the goods—the ball players stayed at home. There was no time during the comedy when the visitors showed that they were in the same class with the Glasgow bunch, and at that, the home boys were in the depths of a dismal slump.

It was no use, Hock ing filled the paths and then helped the merry game of tag that downed the fatal two necessary to end the verse.

The trend of public discussion creates the impression that while Ja pan anticipated President Harding's call for a far eastern conference and is particularly desirous of reaching a workable understanding with America, she is surprised at the inclusion of Italy, France and China in the invi tation, and looks with trepidation on the international examination of mag nitude, promising to exceed pre-con ceived ideas, into far eastern ques tions.
