SCOBEY LETS OUT
ANOTHER WAIL Last week in the Daniels County Leader appeared an article that ed long and furious because the Plen tywood team refused to meet the Sco bey team and claimed the champion ship of the northwest and what not. As a matter of fact, Manager Backer of the Plentywood team stat ed to a Producers News reporter, the trouble with Scobey is that they g — » ped us out of the gate receipts and the Plentywood team will not play Scobey until they come across, unless it be at a tournament, where it is im possible to avoid being matched to gether. He stated that Plentywood and Scobey agreed to play 60-40, win ner taking 60, loser 40 ; per cent of the gate receipts. AL Plentywood the third oî July, Scobey claimed that the gate did not come up to their pectations and claimed they were gypped. Manager Backer says if Scobey was gypped, he was also, and that he asked Scobey to place at the gate to check up which they did not do. That is the whole story of why Plentywood is turning Scobey down cold. Manager Backer finds no fault with the Scobey team and says they are a fine bunch of ball players, but the management is all to the bad. As far as Scobey claims to the cham pionship and Plentywood being afraid of the Daniels county team, the idea is rather ludricious and the *writer of the Leader must have a high sense of humor, when it is taken into con sidération that Plentywood has met wan on ex a man season, winning 7 and losing 3 * . Scobeys claim to the championship IS hot-air and a rather poor effort to try to get a game with Plenty wood, whose reputation is wide-if, spread over the west, and who do not have to play with teams whose management they consider of the cheap and unsportsmanlike sort LATER: Several Scobey^ citizens were Plentywood visitors this (Fri day) morning and squared up the gate receipt fusinessTnd Plenfywood w >>> play both Scobey and Lignite in a double header at Froid next Sunday, July 22 y 1 GIANTS HERE JULY 30 m W tat will "probably b e the game the loca! fans will be able to | see the Plentywood All-Stars in ac tion on the home diamond, Plenty-1 wood will meet the Gilkerson Union Gl i ants , °/„ Chicago.

Cardenas said that Captain Carrn za always refused to start an import ant flight on a day other than Thurs day or Friday, fearing that if he de fied his superstition his flight would end in failure. The superstition, Cardenas believes. prompted the Mexican ace to hop off on Thursday so that he might reach Mexico City on Friday the 13th.

Th horror stricken guests jumped to their feet as the president slumped back in his chair, moaning. Then there was a dash for the slayer and guns and knives were pulled.

Hundreds threw their sessions out windows. were pos The streets were lined with scantily clad fugi tives. Then the wind veered and took the flames back m a j. 1 . i , tbeir course. Today the leering, gaunt walls of a few of the structures, and grea* imounds of debris of others are all that remain. over Wind Shift Fortunate A change in the wind is credited with saving buildings on the east side of mam street and on Si xlh avenue. Jus a.s the fire readied the Go-d block: it threatened the Montgomery Ward building and the O'Connor Drug company across the street and heat from the inferno of the blazing Bailey block and New York store, had made roofs as dry as tinder. The wind which had been blowing from the west veered to the east and the huge Power block acted as a windbreak. The wind shifted three times durme the fire. The heavy rain which fell just as the fire started saved a great many buildings as the embers died when they fell on the wet roofs. Windows are Shattered The intense heat cracked window panes, blistered store fronts ana set fire to roofs of other buildings in the vicinity of the fire. Damage of sev eral thousands was sustained by busi ness Houses across the street fron the burned section. Most of these blocks are windowless, those which were not burned out being pushed out later for safety. The Gold block, a four story brick building, a large part of which was used for offices, was the last to burn. It was owned by the Helena Building and Realty company, a corporation controlled by the T. C. Power inter ests. Charles B. Power estimated the value of the building at $50,000. It was constructed in 1890. Lightning I 8 Cause Evidence that the fire was caused by lightning is furnished by residents of Park avenue who were awakened by thunder claps to discover the rear of the Granite and Bailey blocks in flames near their roofs. That the Granite and the Bailey block were both struck by lightning, the two bolts following in such qu succession that they might have been mistaken for one, is the opinion of Mr. and Mrs. William Smith. They reside in the frame house on Park avenue just west of the New York store site. ick LOOK OUT BEfflie/ \ VO U MAY Js gfe &\go over board; // ./Æ ■'/ A / / I rickson / ssapl hev/ YOU £>ÔLSHEV(Cfy Dom't WRECK / 1 fW; rfH in M4& * ♦ that ST ÖQM U A \ iW* i 1 m e / i « ->\ U ISh ^ A it ■ÇO<%r < 3 . ■ÏX t PRODUCER.

Mr. Ferguson said that sow thistle was worse than any weed that they have yet had in this state and he advocated the use of salt brine to kill them out where small patches appear. He first also stated that sow thistle looks very much like the weed known as blue lettuce.

While some expressed them selves against cooperation, and refused to co-operate or donate to the committee in charge, anti even tried to persuade others not to support the enterprise, we found the great majority of busi ness men and residents of Medi cine Lake very hospitable and did everything to make the picnic grand success. Warns Police of Danger I do not want to overemphasize the danger, great as it is, and nobody should feel reluctant to go to the Vance field'because they fear there is probability of an accidnt. But now, a week in advance of the coming ff the tour, I hope the public may be warned of the danger that doe*s exist, and I believe it is possible to have the complete co-operation of virtually everybody in the crowd when the shi ps are arriving. ■a A o 5v southern and eastern sides of the Vance field there ?are ex cellent parking places that will ac c .°J! 1Rloda t e thousands of automobiles, After the ships are all on the field tiiey will be pulled up along the lines separating the cars from the field and whatever program is arrived at for permitting the spectators to see the ships at close range will then be put into effect. y ,.v .

"I think that all danger and all confusion can be absolutely avoided if those who plan on going to the field arrive at a determination to l_ the situation as it is, recognize the fact that the best view possible will be from the seat of an automobile and make themselves a part of an orderly program that will leave a lasting im pression with those who come with the tour. see DIXON AND RANKIN WIN STATE, COUNTY (Continued from page One) against the company controlled Er ickson administration. Most of these friends also voted for Wheeler be cause they figured that the present senator, with his record of treachery to the progressive movement of the state and his subservience to the mas teis of copper and power, would be an easy candidate to beat in the fi nals. Wheeler and Erickson are now out in their true colors as messenger, boys for the company. They will be backed by all the company papers ini the state and a flood of gold will be spent in an endeavor to elect them. Angstman and Ford Win Other progressive candidates who won the nomination, as predicted in the Producers News, were Assistant Attorney General Angstman and S. C. Ford. They will, in all probability, sit on the supreme court ater the next general election. Maury of Butte was nominated Chief Justice of the Supreme Court on the Demo cratic ticket. Maury, who was once Socialist city attorney of Butte, is well known to the readers of the Producers News. Judge Bourquin won a striking victory for the Attorney Generalship. The company and the broken down Wheeler machine used every effort to defeat the courageous Butte Judge who was the first man in Montana to put the President of the Anaconda Company on the wit ness stand to show the extent of his tax dodging.
