VOLUME 2 WIBAUX, DAWSON COUNTY, MONTANA, THURSDAY JULY 30, 1908 NUMBER 29 EQUAL RIGHTS Small Shipments Com bined are Subject to the Lower Rates Washington, July 27—As a re sult of He' efforts of the Interstate commerce commission a decision Was handed out today, permitting shippers to combine small quanti ties of freight of various ownership, cither by arrangement among them selves, or through the medium of a forwarding agency and ship the .combined lot at the .relatively low er rates applicable to large ship ments. The commission decided in favor of the smaller shippers on the ground that the ownership ef prop erty tendered hr shipment, can not be made test as to the applicabil ity of carriers rates. noli m i)K DTSCRIMIRATION The interstate commerce law for bids discrimination between ship pers and tin fact that one shipper tenders a "hulked shipment" made up of property of various ownership consolidated before delivery to the carrier will not justify the carrier in making a different, charge than for a shipment, ofsimular character tendered by n shipper who is also the owner. The commission rests its decision principally on the case of Wight versus the United States, where the supreme court held that the phrase "under substantially simular circumstances and conditions" as found in section 2 of the act pro hibiting discrimination, refers to the matter of carriage.

VINCELETT DISCHARGED The cast 1 of the state vs. Aziras Vincellette on the charge of poison ing the public range was heard to day pefore Justis Gibb and resulted in the discharge of the defendant. Vincellette put salt and salt peter on the range near his home on Cab in Creek putting up a sign bearing a skull and cross bones and warn ing against poison. Samuel Rife of Rife Bros., woolgrowers of Cabin Creek appeared as complaining wit ness. The defendant admitted put ting out the substance and the signs but the prosecution did not produce any expert testimony to show that salt and salt, peter are poisonous to live stock. Dr. Swank, the veterinary, was out of the city or would Lave been summoned. The defence did not offer any testimony but took the ground that the prosecution had failed to show that the substance was poisonous therefore it was not shown that he was probably guilty of tiie crime allieged, which view the court sustained. — Journal. stock:, market Comparative Receipts Show but Little Dif ference an Values Ft. Paul, July 28—The run of killing cattle was under yesterday's supply but of moderate proportions. In quality it was the usual Tues day's run, a bum h of common stuff showing up with the she stuff in the majority. Outside of a few pretty fair Inn.dies the quality was generally common and of native stock. The market showed little evi dence of recovery from yesterday's decline and there was n disposition on the part of some salesmen to quote prices lower than the pre vious day. Others could SOU little chahge in the price level. The former now quote prices about a quarter oil from the high time last week, while buyers still class it as a 10 to 15 cent lower market and the quotations of the decline show a spread of from 10 to 25 cents. Bulls are quoted 10 to 15 cents lower than last week's close. A late quotation of the general mark et of the conservative nature called it stea ly to a shade lower today. The demand for veals had not been satisfied today and there was evidence early that buyers wanted calves. The market had a strong tone and prices show a good quart er higher range than last week's high time. The run was rather light and quality fair. QUOTATIONS.

IRE SPACE Jordan-Pickc r Eng <Dom* party Remove Stock to Larger Rooms Owing to the increase of business in their old building the Jordan Pickering Company was compelled to seek larger and better quartc rs, and this week they leased the large store room formerly used by the grocery department of the Wibaux Mercantile Co. They will also oc cupy the large warehouse which has always been used in connection with the same building. This firm succeeded Chas. Gcrt ensoii, who formerly c:: clue led a general store, and only ash >rt time after the stock changed hands it was practically all resold in retail quantities, at cost. In the mean time a large a ldittion was buiit m Ike rear, and the entire building, including' a large warehouse, was stocked to its limited capacity v, ith shell and heavy hardware Is.i m implimi-nts. and all kinds of n n chiuery. Tiie company now has n-l.ookeep er and three clerks in their employ, which alone constitutes tin-* fact that they arc enjoying a line ml patronage.^ The entire stock of shelf goods is now being removed to the larger quarters where it can be properly displayed. At this writing we are unable to learn, defiuitly what the old building will be used for. Howev' r the senior member of the firm informed the writer that it would undoubtedly be ir-oil for some much needed line in the near future.
