Forsythians Put it Over the Visitors 519 Points
A Return Match at Miles Sunday.
There was a time—just a few years
ago—when M»les City was well know n
for the superiority of its athletes and
sportsmen over those of other Eastern
Montana towns. But this prestige has
gradually waned to a stage
where even its local papers cannot
"point with pride" to the records made
by its sporting fraternity, and t! e
pntfoyie of Vtirivtd
or much of the news—good or bad as
the case may be.
"One by one Forsyth has been throw
ing its lariat over the Miles City ball
players till they have accumiilated two
thirds of a team, leafing their places
to be filled in Miles by the pilgrim and
stranger" etc., is the essence a wail
made by the Yellowstone Journai last
summer when the "Capitalists" de
feated the pumpkin rollers on the dia
mond. There can be but one conclu
s ; >n according to the dope: The fact
that the papers of Miles refused to"in
form their readers of Sunday night's
contest, is evincible enough that Miles
City is outclassed from a sporting stand
point, and should "go way back and
sit dotvn. "
But all this side talk is immaterial
when it comes to the way the local
bowlers spread it over the Milesians
Sunday night at the American hotel
alleys. It was announced that the
Miles City team would arrive in the
morning, but it failed to put in an ap
peal aiice until aoour y o'clock in the
evenuig. A large crowd was present
when the first game was called and as
the visitors were désirions of catching
th: early morning train, the contest,
which consisted of five games, was
played without a stop.
As inglorious as the defeat was, the
Milesians submitted manfully.

In Connection with the coming meet

vention to be held at Helena beginning
February 4, the Hews has received the
following letter from ex-Senator T. C.
Power, president of the Montana state
board of sheep commissioners:
"Arrangements have been made with
the railroads for a rate of a fare and
a third on a certificate plan for the
woolgrowers' convention to be held
here beginning Feb. 4, from Montana,
Idaho and Washington points, and al
so from Oregon if the O. R. & N.
is agreeable, and I believe arrange
ments have been made with that road.
The Club stable, corner of Logan and
Twelfth avenue, a convient place, has
been secured for the exhibition of rams.
This stable has formerly been used for
the sale of thoroughbred cattle during
the season. A very excellent assort
ment of ranis from Washington and
Oregon, whose owners have engaged
stable room here, will be on exhibition
during the meeting. All wool men are
invited to add to the exhibition of
"Preparations are being made by
the citizens of Helena to entertain the
delegates in a fitting manner. A re
reception will be given them at one oi
the clubs and the sessions of the con
vention promises to be interesting and
profitable as the association member
ship includes the biggest sheep men in
the Northwest.
"Addresses will be delivered by Dr.
M. E. Knowles, state veterinarian; I
D. O'Donnell of Billings; A. C. Logan,
of Billings; Professors Shaw andBlank
inship, of Bozeman; R. C. Judson, of
Portland; Commissioner of Agricul

and the flocks of the state number 4,
500.000. "

In the early part of next week Col.
W. F. Cody and his daughters, Mrs.
A. C. Boat of Birney, Mont., and Miss
Irma, will reach here, says the Cody
Enterprise. The latest information
from the Colonel is to the effect that
the Wild West will probably make an
extensive tour of Europe, commencing
with the present season and consuming
three years. Upon former occasions
the concern has met with great success
abroad, receiving great attention
everywhere. This will probably be
the last visit of the concern to a for
eign country.
The new capitol building commis
sion Monday on the recommendation of
Bell A Kent, the supervising archi
tects, accepted the new stalehouse
from the contractées, the Montana
Building company. H. L. Frank,
president of the company, was present.
His bondsmen who obliged themselves
to the amount of $50,000 for the faith
ful performance of the contract, were
released from further Mability by the
commission. The capital m.w belongs
to the state, although it will not be
dedicated until July 4, next.
According to an opinion of the at
torney general of the United states, re
ceived by H. S. Howell, deputy lollec
of internal revenue, revenue stamps
are required on qapital stock pledged
Wool MarKet Strong
Reviewing the wool market for the
past week, the American Wool and
Cotton Reporter says: Sales for the
week, 3,920,000 pounds.
The market is a trifle quieter, but
its tone, as far as prices are concerned
is as firm as ever, and the tendency
of market prices is to harden. There
is an average, steady business in pro
gress, but there has been no movement
to secure a loan, when it is to be trans
ferred to the lender in case of default
in payment. The revenue stamps to
be used are at the rate of two cents oh
each $100 face value of stock.
J. A. Banta, an elderly man of Bill

State Superintendent of Public In
struction Welch has announced that
the next teachers' examination would
be held Friday, February 28, and Sat
urday, Mardi 1. There has been a
misunderstanding as to the date by
several county superintendent«, who
thought the law required an examina
tion on the last Friday and Saturday
"f the month. The law requires it h»
be held on the last Friday and the fol
lowing day.
A requisition for a second consign
ment of plows from the Indians at
Standing Rock agency led to an. inves
tigation which developed that, aftei
using the first plows to construct irri
gation ditches, according to instruc
tion, the Indians had built a huge
dam, using the entire consignment to*
form the superstructure.
of large lines, the big consumers hai
iuff done comparatively little during
the past week. There has, however,
been a good business done with tin
smaller mills, and dealers have pur
chased to some extent. If there wen
larger a .id belter selection-, of -voo
here, more business would probably
have been consum.-ued. Some ne
gotiations are in progress on wools t<
arrive, and manufacturers are keep
ing in close touch with the market.
There has been an average, stead}
demand for territories, although thi
business has not been characterized 1 m
tiie moving of many large lines. A
few good sized lots have been disposée
of, however, and full prices have beer
paid. Holders are independent, and,
as a rule, will make no concessions
Strictly fine territory sells verj
readily, and has brought prices rang
ing from 47 to 50c, clean, according t<
the staple. Consumers cannot bu>
anything medium, with any staple ii
it at all, for less than -15c, clean, am
if the wool is fine, even il it has not
much staple in it, it w ill sell for moi e
money. A strictly clothing wool,
from which the staple has been taken,
sells for 43c. The bulk of the wool,
sold the past week, however, has been
taken at prices ranging from 45 to 50c,
a fine Nevada selling at 48c, anil
better. A good sized line of Great
Falls wools—the best there are—is
being held at 20c, but the wools will
not bring that price today. Fine
medium Idaho has sold at 45c, clean.
As showing the strength of the mar
ket, it may be stated that a lot of 80,
000 pounds of Montana, which was
sold two weeks ago to a dealer, was
turned over last week at a profit of yic
to another dealer.
