The protest, which contains nine
pages of legal cap is accompanied bv
two lengthy exhibits one of which is j
an engineer's report on the water lev- j
els of Flathead Lake, brought sharply ;
to the attention of senators the fact
that an effort was being made to
"put something over on the senate",
li called attention to a clause of the |
appropriation bill which would grant
the power to a body of three men to !
lea«« an important water sight to i
private interests. The innocent look- j
ing clause or "joker" in the bill is !
now exposed and representatives of
the Montana Power Company here
have not the confident appearance
they had a week ago.
The fact that the clause which was

the
ol
so skillfully hidden amongst a score
of items in the appropriation bill has
been forced into the spotlight of i
S attention by the Wallace protest has
worried the two Montana senators
also. They will now be forced to take
a stand one way or the other. Sena
I i° r ^aLsh is placed in a peculiarly
j embarrassing position by the fact that
he is fathering a public utility probe.

CO. BANKS $1,651,419.67
The recent bank statements issued
after the first of the year of the dif

show a prosperous condition of the
farmers and business men. Sheridan
county was one of the hardest hit
counties in the state with bank fail
ures and much money was placed in
safe keeping by other methods than
in th e local banks. The increased de
posits indicate that the feeling of con
fidence in banks is returning with the
increasing prosperity of the farmers

Tbe Homestead city team will meet
the Plentywood City team at the
Farmer-Labor Temple tonight (Fn
day).
Homestead has the reputation of al
ways bringing up a good team to
Plentywood, recruiting what they are
short from the verjr best of the sur
rounding towns.
The Plentywood quintet is in good
shape after resting up from their tour
to the south, and is ready for a good
ba ttle.
A good crowd should be out and
see this game and help the boys to
bring home the bacon. They have
been practicing faithfully to give this
c(ty a team to be proud of and now
the fans should back them up with
their presence at the games. Plenty
wood has not got a very good repu
tation for attendance at City Team
basketball games in the past. Let us
change this around this season and
support the boys in a 100 per cent
attendance.

several hundred gallons of mash and

Bozeman, Jan. 21.— America's
greatest vocational conference for
young men of high school age starts
at the state college here Jan. 30, al
though the previous Sunday night
there will be an address by J. Adams
Puffer, Boston, and a concert by state
college music organizations. The con
ference will mark a high point in the
history of these meetings in Montana,
since it is believed that more men of
national reputation than ever before
will be here to address the young
men delegates.
The conference closes at noon
February 2. More than 1,000 young
men of high schools of five north
western states are expected. For the
last two years the attendance has
been nearly 1,100 each year. It is
called the world's biggest vocational
conference and is regarded at Mon
tana's greatest "high school event" of
the year. It is believed that no other
high school meeting in America is at
tended by delegates from as many
