Jan. 28.-It was brough t I out at the legislative freight rate hearing last night that rates fronm Montana points to Minneapolis and Duluth are about 75' pier cent higher than rates from points in Canada of the same inileage. J. M. Hannaford, vice-president of the Northern Pacific Railway company, was on the stand. He explained the disparity in Montana and Canadian rates on the grounds that the Canadian lines are subsidized by the govern ment. In "rebuttal it then was shown that the Northern Pacific received a land grant from the federal government ý,wrtli many millions of dollars, andit was fur ther brought out that rates on the Northern Pacific are about 10 per TEMPERANCE LECTURE HERE By Dr. Harvey G.

Furbay, the' superin tendent of the Anti Saloon League of Montana will address the people of Harlowton at the Methodist church on next Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. Dr. Furbay is a powerful speaker and handles the anti-saloon ques tion. without gloves. The Dr. is entitled to a large audience. The following is what the Mis soulian has to say about him: Dr. Harvey G. Furbay the newly appointed superintendent of the Anti-Saloon league for Montana, made his introduction to Missoula particularly impressive yesterday. He spoke in the morning in the Christian church and in the even ing he addressed an audience which taxed thfe seating capacity of the Congregational church. "Dr. Furbay is a fighter; there is no evasion.about his talk; he hits hard and he hits Often; his blows are strong and direct. Last night he was interrupted by ap plause. He paused and said: "'This is the second time I have ever heard applause :in a church; the first time was when I spoke in the Mountain View Methodist church in Butte the other night. I like it. I am glad you folks have the cour age of your convictions. I like the fellow who is fair and square.' "Dr. Furbay is a different sort of a temperance speaker from the type of which we are accustomed. He is an improvement. He doesn't deal in platitudes and doepn't beat about the bush. He talks facts and sound sense and wastes no words in baying what he has to say."

MONTANA PIONEERS Meet In Billings on the First Day In February for Their Annual Banquet. Billings, Montana, Jan. 31.-The 1 Society of Pioneers of Eastern SMontana has completed arrange ments for its annual banquet which will be held in Billings on the evening of Februury 1. Invitations have been sent out to members and their friends in all cities, towns and rural communities in the east ern section of the state and it is anticipated that the gathering will gram will include talks on the I early days in Montana by men and women, many of whom have resi ded in the Treasure state for Salmost hal-f a century, egislati Column The Whiteside bill, advocating the consolidation of the four higE er schools of~ education, was de. ,feated in the senate yesterday. The bill was a good one, but met with united opposition from thei tounties that have these schools at .the present time, Missoula,' Beaverhead," Gallatin and Silverj Bow. If the legal opinion of Attorneyi . A. P. Heywood of Helena holds t good, the legislature cannot create any new counties. In a letter to l Representative Kenmmis, the attor" ney says the law of 1911 -holds and; there cannot be the ways of doing . the thing by the legislature. :Lieutenant Governor McDowelli and Speaker Macdonald signed -..t B. No. 1 for the woman's suffrage amendment. It went to the goverir nor, who immediately affixed his signature. Four county division proposi tions are now before the house and senate. They provide for the crea tion of Richland county from a portion of Dawson; Phillips from portions of Blaine and Valley; Wibaux from portions of Custer and Dawson, and Lake from parts of Missoula, Flathead and Sanders' The reason for- bringing these division schemes before the legisla ture intead of taking advantage " of the Leighton law for submission to the people are that it is cheaper and in at least one instance the assessed valuation of the propert. if the p oposedtie' wounty isnot sufficient to warrant submission of the scheme to the electorate. After it had been under fire for two hours the house advanced the Drinkard lobbying regulation measure for passage in committee of the whole without admendment. The measure is framed after the o Wisconsin law and not only pro- a vides for registration of legislative councel and lobbyists, but penalizes their appearance on the floor of the house or their attempt to in fluence members of the legislature, except by appearing before the various committees. Opposition to the measure was based on the fact that it excludes those lobbying for legislation in behalf of labor organizations except by appearance before committees and also excludes them from the privileges of the floor in both houses. CRULL Is SARCASTIC. Colonel Crull suggested that the bill be so admended as to provide that lobbyists of high and low degree be met at the station upon their arrival in Helena and made to carry a banner designating their purpose. "The moment they put foot on the capital grounds," he said sarcastically, "they should be muzzled." He declared that the bill, if enacted, would prevent the coal miners from coming to the capital with petitions for legisla tion they need, and urged against its favorable consideration. The Jewell motion to report the bill then carried. The following bill introduced by Survant on county division: S. B. 94.-Relating to the creation, organization and classification of new counties and the appointment [i of officers. Referred to the com [ mittee on towns and countiss. The anti-lobby bill passed the J house by'three votes. The meas 1 ure was not a political one. The - progressive pa ty had this as one 3 of the planks of their platform. 1 Davidson, one of the progressives, 'voted against the measure. Most r of the opposition came from the democrat. IFIGHT OVER WOOL TARIFF anufacturers Present Front Against Any Tariff Reduc tion on Cloth. Washington, Jan. 27.--Protec ionists and tariff revisionists kept up a running fight before the house ays and means committee today, which was continued tonight. The wool tariff was the issue on which >he manufacturers presented an anlmost solid alignment against re 9uction of duty on woolen cloth and ready made clothing, though /avoring reduction of the duty on haw wools. It was the most strenuous fight made at this session of congress against the democratic plan for re .?ision of the duties in the coming extra session. Through William Goldman of New York, its presi lent, the National Association of Alothiers declared that while free ,Wool was desirable, a move to put ,wool on the free list was too revo lutionary. He said the association endorsed the proposed democratic rate of 20 per cent ad valorem on raw wool. The National Association of Manufacturers, comprising 100 of rthe woolen mills of the country, through its president, John P. 'Wood of Philadelphia, presented a .tentative schedule of rates, but i1r. Wood admitted that, the ched e was approximately the ea:the present tariff law. The committee showed no signs coday of changing its tentative plan for a revised wool schedule along the lines of the democratic bills of the two previous sessions of this congress, which provided for 20 per cent ad valorem on raw wool, and from 35 to 50 per cent on cloths, ready made clothing and other articles.

I ROOSEVELT IN CRUSADE' Striking New York Garment Makers May Find Their Champion in Him. New York, Jan. 22,--Privations resulting from long hours and small wages for women workers in the garment industry are "crush ing the future motherhood of the country," Colonel Theodore Roose velt declared after his last night's visit among the kimona and wrap per making strikers. Most of the girls in this branch of the industry D are not more than 15 years old. D Colonel Roosevelt visited them 5 at the request of a settlement 0 worker, who ushered him into a 0 hall crowded with girls of all 0 tongues. They gathered about him eagerly as soon as they Wad been assured of his friend liness, and told their stories through interpreters. The' colonel had a characteristic x- emphatic expression of anger and n 4'pathy s each case was revealed g to him. "This is crushing the future Smotherhood of the country," he said finally. "It must be stopped. It is too horrible for words." "If they would only lot ·us sing while we worked it would not be so bad." er I "The brutes!" the colonel uttered resides on Big Elk, south of Two. dot. Mr. Shumaker had a host of friends all over Meagher county, and was highly respected by all that know him. "A loving husband, a good friend and neighbor has passed to the great beyond." The "News" extends its sympa thy to the bereaved family in their loss. His remains will be laid to rest in the White Sulphur Springs cemetery, Saturday, February 1st. A special train will meet the train from Butte at Ringliung at 2 p, in, under his breath. One of the typical cases was that of a girl who worked from 8 o'clock in the morning until 9 o'clock at night making 36 kimonos at 4 cents each, earning about $6 a week. She had to pay the compa ny $32 for the machine she used. Colonel Roosevelt has been so impressed with conditions that he said he would make further inves tigations tomorrow. MEETING WIT OPPOSITION Federations of Labor Opposing Compensation Act--Should Take Action at Once. The bill in the Montana legisla ture for a workman's compensation act is meeting with considerable opposition by the different federa tions of labor throughout the state. The bill is fashionoed after the Washington act and repeals the Liability act passed by the last legislature. It would be well for the railroad employees and others, who have not investigated it, to do so at once. One of the employees of the railroad at Miles City was in -town Tuesday evening and explained this bill to a few of the railroad employees. If they wish to defeat this bill they should take action at once.
