ROOSEVELT COUNTY
SEAT TRANSFERRED
Records and Furniture
moved from Poplar to Wolf Point.
Poplar, July 19.—Wolf Point trucks
and men moved the county records
and furniture today. Two buildings
are available for the offices, the Great
Northern office building and the Coli
seum. The former needs only to have
vaults added and could accommodate
all the offices. The Coliseum would
have to be remodeled, a new heating
plant installed and vaults built.
The commissioners met at WcJf
Point yesterday, but could not de
cide as to relative merits of the two
buildings and took no action. Offices
will be housed temporarily about
town.
The county superintendent,
sheriff and commissioners are located
in the Sherman hotel, assessor and
clerk of court in a store building and
the treasurer in the Rogers-Temple
ton lumber cifice.
TWO SITES OFFERED
Wolf Point, July 19.—A special
meeting of Roosevelt county commis
sioners was held here Wednesday, and
moving of records began Thursday
pursuant to arrangements made by
them with local business men for
temporary quarters in which to house
the offices, until such time as neces
sary vaults can be built and remodel
ing done to building which will be
used for permanent court house.
The commissioners were offered
two court house sites, the old dis
patchers' office building and the
Coliseum dance hall, for considera
tion.
It is expected that they will make
a decision as to which offer they will
accept at a meeting here next Mon
day. Moving of the records proceed
ed in an orderly and expeditious man
j ner, with no opposition or hostile de
| monstrations.
Redstone Loses An
Extra Inning Game
Redstone Review: The game last
Sunday between Whitetail and Red

crowd ci interested boosters for both
teams and was exciting all the way
through^ and was nobody's game un
til the last man was out in the elev
enth inning. In the last inning our
boys had a chance to even up the
score but were only able to bring
in two runs, leaving the final at 10
to 8 in favor of Whitetail.

County Assessor Aspelund closed
his books for 1924 on July 8th, and
he is well pleased with results, altho
the value is less than 1923 this is
easily accounted for. Owing to so
many banks failing, the value of
bank stocks have depreciated almost
$80,000.00, and cash on hand dropped
$25,000.00. and there was $40,000 less
grain reported for taxation this year.
The assessor also cut the value of
stock and dairy cows $5.00 a head
this vear, and this made a cut of ov
er $40,000.00.
A comporative statement of the
assessed values ci Sheridan county
for 1923 and 1924 is herewith given
so that taxpayers will obtain an idea
of where th e taxes are realized:

NORTHERN MON
TANA CORN SHOW
While the dates have not been de
finitely set for the Northern Mon
tana Corn Show which will be held
at Wolf Point this year, the show
promises to be the best ever held in
*bis district, and will compare favor
ably with any State Com Show of
Montana.
The addition G f both ribbons and
Iar ^ er cash P rizes in evei Y class wil1
be an additional stimulus to
corn
farmers to exhibit at this show. The
cash prizes in all ccm classes have
been trebled, and ribbons will be giv
en to the first ten places rather than
the first four places, which has been
the previous custom. There are also
a number of other features that will
be added to the 1924 show in the
way of special prizes. The First Na
tional Bank of St. Paul is offering a
large silver cup > valued at $25 which
w dl be given to the sweepstakes
winner in the 100 ear class. The
boys' corn club members will also be
given an opportunity to compete for
a sweepstakes cup of their own, which
is a beautiful brenze cup twelve
inches high, valued at $10, given to
the corn show by the same company.
The following newspapers and farm
papers are offering subscriptions to
their magazines and papers as spe
cial prizes: The Dairy Farmer; The
Montana Farmer; Montana* Record
Herald; Dakota Farmer; the Farmer,
and the Farm Journal. These sub
scriptions vary from one to five
years» and are as valuable as cash
prizes to the winners. Montgomery
Ward & Co. is donating an all-wool
auto robe as a special prize. Other
outside contributors that are helping
to make the com show a success are:
N. W. Savage, St. Paul; Monarch
Lumber Co., Great Falls; First Na
tional Bank, Great Falls; Three
Forks Portland Cement Co., and the
Montana Department of Agriculture,
with contributions still
from outside sources who are vitally
interested in the development of
coming in
Northern Montana.
The corn farmer is not the only
one who will have a chance to exhibit
at the corn show, as there will be a
utility seed show for registered and
approved growers. All standard va
rieties of seed will be exhibited and
substantial prizes will be given in
each class and lot. Cash prizes are
offered this year to the registered
the approved
grower as well as
grower which has been the practice
in previous years. Farmers are urged
now to begin thinking of ideal types
of corn and standard varieties of
seed and be prepared to come to the
show at Wolf Point with the idea

Rail Grain Rates Wont
Be Cut By Federal Ruling
Washington July 17.—The benefit !
which would accrue to the average
farmer in case of a reduction in
freight rates on grain and grain pro
ducts generally is small, compared
with the disastrous effect on certain
railroads, revenues, and on their cred
it, the interstate commerce commis
sion declared today in an opinion on
the general rate case.
The commission held also that the
general basis of rates for transpor
tation of grain, grain products and
hay are not unreasonable, or other
wise in violation of the interstate
commerce act and the complaint was
dismissed.
An investigation previously ordered
by the commission was discontinued.
BIG COMPANY WINS OUT
Washington, July 17.—The federal
trade commission complaint against
the Douglas fir exploitation and ex
port company, charging an attempt
to monopolize the lumber export
business of the Pacific coast was dis
missed today by the commission with
out prejudice.
