DULUTH TO GLA
CIER TOURISTS
Entertainment Here Sunday Confined
to Luncheon—Reception Com
mittee Named.
Luncheon will be tendered the Du
luth to Glacier tourists, who are to
arrive here Sunday, by the Glasgow
Chamber of Commerce.
The fact that the schedule of the
tour was changed, making the stop
at Glasgow Sunday instead of Mon
day, as originally planned, has ser
iously interferred with the arrange
ments of the committee having charge
of the entertainment of the tourists.
The greatest obstacle to carrying out
the program outlined last week, is
the fact that the ladies cannot be
asked to serve a community lunch on
Sunday. The stunts have been aban
doned because the circus will not be
here as was announced. The feature
of the entertainment will be the lunch
eon which will be served at Alsop's
Tea Room, for which the following
menu has been arranged:
******** *****
Chicken a la King
Potatoes Bread and Butter
Combination Salad
Pie a la Mode Coffee

A souvenir announcement has been
printed and will be presented to the
guests.

Canadians Favor Immigra
tion Restrictions in U. S.
Montreal.—"The United States has,
more or less, closed the door to Euro
pean emigrants," said Col. J. S. Den
nis of the Canadian Pacific railway
and a recognized authority on im
migration and colonization. "What
will the effect be on Canada ?
"Canada today is in much the same
position that the United States was in
at the beginning of the nineteenth
century. Its population at the com
mencement of the twentieth century
was much the same as that of the
United States at the beginning of the
nineteenth. Its great farm areas need
settlers to grow food to feed its grow
ing cities and to provide traffic for
the great railways.

SLOGAN IS SEE
AMERICA FIRST"
The Glacier Park Trail Association
Makes Its Bow With The Em
blematic Goat.
"See America first" is the slogan
of a new Glacier Trail association,
which makes the announcement of its
organization on stationery embelished
with the Rocky Mountain goat. The
new assoc'ation did not get the Great
Northern's goat, but has acquired a
working interest in it, and uses the
emblem with the consent of the Great
Northern, which fully endorses the
trail association's plans.
Letters to H. B. Tyson, secretary
of the Montana division of the T. R.
highway, and circulars to the Cham
ber of Commerce, contain added in
formation regarding the new associa
tion. It starts at St. Louis, goes to
Minneapolis through Missouri and
Iowa, from Minneapolis to Grand
Forks, over the southern Minnesota
route, and from Grand Forks to Gla
cier park over the Roosevelt highway.
Claims for the route say, "no des
erts, no dry hot stretches, hundreds
of lakes and streams alive with fish,
fine camping places; the trail that is
getting the most improvement." The
trail map shows Glasgow in large
tpve.
This association will probably re
ceive the enthusiastic support of the
Roosevelt association, and will un
doubtedly prove a great force in pro
curing travel over the older trail, to
Glacier park. The fact that this route
has been selected, shows, once more,
that the northern route to the parks
will be one of the most favored in
the near future, as every reason, when
understood, is
its
j
the reason
favor.
Bert B. Fuqua, secretary of the
Glacier association in his letter to Mr.
Tyson, says: "It has been shown that
a trail having a real live association
is of more importance towards forc
ing travel over a road than the mark
ing of the road. Travel over a mark
ed road will increase from 300 to 400
percent, when the publicity ,is looked
after, it increases from !!00 to 3000.
This organization is using its influ
ence in every way possible to create
travel over its trail and for the de
velopment of better roads and com
munities."
The Glacier Trail association tan
count upon the united support of,
Glasgow business men and their or
ganizations.
JAPANlGRËÉS
TO CONFERENCE
Will Enter Broad Discussion of Mat
ters Affecting President's Dis
armament Program.
Tokio, July 2«!.—The Japanese cab
inet has decided to accept participa
tion in the proposed conference on Far
Eastern problems, The Associated
Press was informed today.
It is understood the Japanese ans
wer will be forwarded to Washington
in the near future.
According to Japan's understand
ing of the American viewpoint, as giv
en out here, America's idea is to make
the basis of the conference a broad
discussion of policies and principles,
generally in the Pacific were affected.
The idea is said to prevail that ques

left, wherever possible, to the powers
concerned.

SEVENTY-FIVE
EDITORS MEET
Whitefish Annual One of Best
History—Part of What Was
Done.
T. J. Hocking returned from an out
ing with the editors at Whitefish.
Among the things of general inter
est done by the editors, Mr. Hocking
says that just before breaking up the
editors endorsed the strike of the 1
university students against attending I
the lectures of Prof. Fischer, who has :
been accused by the American Legion
of unpatriotism during the war with ;
Germany. He adds that the meeting |
was a good one viewed either as a !
business matter or an enjoyable out- j
ing. '
The final day had as its best fea
ture a tour of Glacier national park,
but some of the items of business were !
conspicuous features, too. They in-j
eluded a step toward securing the na
tional editorial convention for Montana j
for next year and the election of offi- |
cers, P. B. Snelson, of the Great Falls
Tribune, being made president. I
Two Places Want Convention.
The place for the next state meet
ing was left to the choice of the ex-^
. .
ecutive committee, with Lewistown and j
! S. Warden Great Falls, treasurer.
White Sulphur Springs as the only .
contenders.
The convention got away for the
park tour with a very happy expres
sion of Whitefish hospitality and an
idea that the best was. to come on the
afternoon outing among the primeval
sublimity of lakes and peaks in the
great wilderness playground. Before
leaving, the convention passed reso
lutions endeavoring to express the
pleasure the hospitality of the town
and the efforts of G .M. Moss had giv
en them as guests and thanking, also,
the boys' band, the automobiles who
furnished cars and the Boosters' club
under whose auspices the banquet of
the convention was held.
Banouet Was Happy Event.
At the banquet, Dean Stone and M.
J. Hutchins of Missoula, spoke on
"Reminiscences," and Pete Snelson on
"Why Is a Country Correspondent?"
W. W. Gail, Billings, was toastmaster.
In addition to electing B. Snelson
as president, the association chose G.
M. Moss, Whitefish Pilot, Larry Do
bell, Butte Miner, W. O. Ensign, Hy

FEASIBLE WATER ROUTE TO EAST
Farmers are investigating the feas
ibility of using the Missouri river as
a means of transportation to the grain
markets this year.
Valley county grain growers whose
farms lie within 15 or 20 miles of the
Missouri river, are now busily can
vassing the matter, and there* is no
doubt that some definite action will
uvjuut iii»u »um uciuiiif acuun will
be taken soon, with regard to picking
out landing places and chartering
boats and barges necessary to trans
port this year's immense grain crop
to the terminals.
The action is the result of the very
pronounced opinion that the present
railroad freight rates are prohibitive,
and the movement has gained impetus
since the recent statement of State
Commissioner of Agriculture Davis,
made at the county Farm Bureau pic
nic, that the freight rate would take
29 cents from each bushel of grain
wether sold locally or at the termin
als.
The government boat Mandan,
which recently made a trip up and
down the river, has set farmers to
. thinking, and other boats have been
solicited to take on the trade; the
, county ferry boat the Invincible might
be utilized.
| Some slight repairs to the roads to
the river will be needed, it is said,
and the farmers have volunteered to
assist in putting them in shape. If the
plan outlined can be put into effect it
will solve a serious marketing prob
I lem for these farmers, since the time
PRETTY CAME
LAST SUNDAY
Havre Downs Glasgow With Count
of Three to One— Ingersoll Throws
I'henominal Ball.
Most of the elete of the local con
tingent of fans, attended the base ball
demonstration at the Glasgow experi
ment station, last Sunday. The game
was one of the best of the season and
resulted in the elimination of the home
team by a simple process of arithme
tic—the official handwriting on the
wall showing three to one in favor of
Havre.
It was noted early in the game that
the season and horoscope, an' every
thing, was all Jake for Ingersoll, the
Havre twirler, who had them break
ing just right. Just what his system
is, the home aggregation have not yet
found out, but McCormack caught him
kissing the ball and others heard him
whispering to it, anyway he had it
trained to promptly dodge the many
swipes aimed by Glasgow's hardy vet
erans of many a victorious field.
ln spite 0 f Ingersoll's wizardry,
Bretzke touched up the old pill, for a
three bagger, and others trifled with
t j,e bases, only to go down with the
Bretzke

striker—all dying together.
re t ur ned to the fireside with a well
earned run, the only one Glasgow
made. Baechler held down the 1st.
pillow, in his usual gentlemanly and
efficient way, and many visitors
walked home from 1st. sadder and a
wiser men. Hurly simply ate up
the foul flies, and Bardell while
not seeming to work hard, threw a
very pretty game. Ling touched up
the olive for a home run, but this is
liable to happen anywhere, even in
the big leagues, and no one felt sorry
about it, as was shown by the liberal
applause from the fans.
As a whole the game was excellent;
had Ingersoll allowed a few more hits
it would have been an even thing. It
was not out of balance as it was, ex
cept for his superior work. It was
some base ball show and all who saw
the game were well satisfied. The

tion, will be a prominent figure,
C. E. Hoppin, cashier of the Glas
gow National Bank, will attend the
meeting of the State Bankers Asso
ciation at Helena, August 4, 5 and 6.
Mr. lloppin is member of the Exec
utive council of the association, repre
senting Group 4, and one of the lead
ing bankers cf the state. He is promi
nent at this time on account of having
announced a policy of graduating
farmer's credit by the amount
summer fallowing he does, and it is
believed is thus doing much to im
prove farming conditions among the
clientele of his bank.
The meeting will be addressed by
some very noted men, among others,
former governor Lowden of Illinoi
and Gov. W. G. P. Harding of the Fed
eral Reserve Board. John S. Drum,
president of the American Bankers
Association, will also be present, and

N.-S. TRAIL PLAN
GOING FORWARD
Answers of Different Bodies Indicate
Endorsement of Road—Organi
zation Soon.
The project to form a north and
south trail association is taking on i
form. W. G. Ferguson, secretary of j
the Miles City Commercial club writes, j
that he will attend a meeting here at '
any time when called upon, and that 1
the body he represents will heartily j
second the Glasgow plan. Federal aid |
work is now being done on the road i
between Miles City and Jordan and I
county work on the road from Jordan j
to the ferry.
A letter from the Board of Trade'
at Saskatoon, Canada, says that the !
matter will be acted upon by the di- j
rectors of that body; it is presumed!
that some such reason is delaying a I
reply from Jordan.
As soon as replies from these two |
places are received, a meeting will |
e called here, and all towns along
proposed line invited to send delegates j
and a trail organization perfected in t
the usual form. It is hoped that plans
may be advanced this year far en
ough to mark the road, as there are
many inquiries at headquarters now
from tourists wanting to get into Can
ada, or to the Yellowstone highway,
at Miles City, from this point.
TEN THOUSAND AITOISTS
ARE EVADING TAXATION
Helena, July 23.—Automobile reg
istration fees from December 1 to
June 30 amounted to $503,876, Secre
tary of State Charles T. Stewart an
nounces in his formal report for the
beginning of the new fiscal year, July
1.
Of this amount, $530,649.50 was col
lected in March, April and June. Noth
ing was collected in January or Feb
ruary and the collections in Decem
ber were $226.50.
For the seven months ending June
30 last year, receipts from automo
bile registration were $373,977.50.
The greatly increased amount this
lyear represents higher registration
. fees, imposed by the last legislature,
rather than the registration of more
automobiles, Secretary Stewart says.
He charges that 10,000 or more au
tomobilists in Montana, are evading
payment of the fee.
Fees in the automobile department
'for the first 15 days in July were
' $15,605.
All monies received by the auto
mobile department is divided between
the counties from which the fees are
colected and the state highway com
mission.

Boston Transcript—Secretary Mel
lon, like most of us, believes that the
debts of the Allies to the United
States are debts, and like all debts
should be paid.
Borah Would Hold Debts
Over Heads of the Allies
Washington, July 25.—Postpone
ment of allied debts refunding until
after the proposed disarmament con-,
ference was advocated in the senate
today by Senator Borah, republican,
Idaho.
If the foreign governments are un
able to agree with the United States
on a disarmament program, he said,
"American people will be justified in
insisting that they promptly meet
their debts and interest also." The
debt question, Senator Borah said,
"will play an important part, molding
art! shar ing policies, whether it is
mentioned or not." France was the
"most militaristic" nation at present,
Senator Borah said, adding that her
army of 800,000 men was excessive.
FARMERS AGREE
ON WAGE SCALE
Threshing Prices Are Also Decided At
Threshermen's and Farmers'
Meeting, Saturday.
More than 200 men, threshermen,
farmers and business men directly in
terested in the harvest, met at the
court house last Saturday afternoon,
in response to the call of the officers
of the county threshermens' associa
tion, for the annual meeting. There
was much interesting discussion, and
prices for threshing, and a wage scale
was agreed on for the season.
That Valley county is the favored
spot this year, was the note which
predominated the entire meeting.
That there had been little hail; that
J. he .J, 0RS fr ? m , grasshoppers was neg
ligible; and that crops were all good
and would thresh out as high as 40
bushels of wheat to the acre, were
the basic facts of all of the discus
sion. This was conducted after the
j'round table fashion, and at times was
warm, but at all times good temper
ed, the farmers and threshers finally
agreed in all essential details.
The meeting was opened by County
Agent Stebbins who talked for a few
minutes, outlining the objects of the
meeting saying that it was important
that prices be agreed upon, so that
the much needed farm help could be
secured at once. He informed the
meeting that the supply was ample,
and that other counties had suffered
entire crop failures and he could,
through the farm bureau, get the
farmers from these districts, to come
in here and help with the harvest;
also he had been in communication
with the Anaconda copper company
officials, who were anxious to place
their regular employees at farm work
while their plants were shut down.
Any number of these men could be
had at once. He warned the farmers
from having anything to do with the
I. W. Ws. who were going through
the country, saying that this class
could not be depended upon, and con

Officers for the ensuing year were
then elected, as follows:

PRESÏDËNTlSRS
PROMPT ACTION
Recommends Increased Powers to War
Finance Corporation to Help
Farmers and Railroads.
Wash., July 26.—President Hard
ing sent a message to congress today
asking legislation authorizing the
War Finance corporation to handle
funding of railroad indebtedness and
increased credit for financing agri
cultural exports.
That there were "moral" obliga
tions upon the government to aid in
both respects was stated by the presi
dent who commended the war finance
corporation as an agency of great
value in restoring economic condi
tions. Prompt action was requested,
but the president did not ask that both
features be contained in one bill.
Republican leaders, therefore adopt
ed- the plan of dealing with the rail
road and agricultural questions in sep
arate measures. Senator Kellogg,
Republican, Minnesota, introduced a
bill drafted by Secretary Hoover of
the department of commerce and
Chairman Meyer of the war finance
corporation extending the powers of
the war finance corporation to agri
cultural export financing. It also
would increase the corporation's re
volving credit fund from five hundred
million to one billion dollars.
LEGION WILL GRAVEL
STREET FOR TOURISTS
Chinook, July 23.— Chinook will
have her main street graveled by the
legion boys next week and made ready
for the Duluth Roosevelt highway
tourists. The organization has bor
rowed six motor trucks from the state
highway commission, and the county
is donating the gravel.
The plowing and leveling will be un
der the direction of Pat Maney, whose
teams will join with five extra four
horse teams, the services of which
have been donated.
The only estimated cost for making
the street ready will be for a man to
load the trucks at the gravel pit, and
for gas and oil for the trucks, and
this will be met by subscription.
