WIBAUX, DAWSON COUNTY, MONTANA, THURSDAY. NOVEMBER 25, 1909 NUMBER 46 2-BIT WOOL NEXT YEAR Is the Prediction of a Prominent Mon tana Grower Twenty -tive cent wool next sea son is the prediction made by a Montana sheepman, and he de clares that no grower should con tract for his clip at any figure less than that. "I w r as interested in an article which recently appeared giving an interview with a railroad man who keeps more or less in touch with the wool industry," said the sheepman, "but I am afraid that this authority is on better terms with the wool buyers than with the producers. I have a clip at the present time in a Chi cago warehouse. I received a letter yesterday stating that I can dis pose of it for twenty-seven cents. This is equivalent to twenty-five cents in Montana. With the market manifesting this strength at this season of the year, any wool grower who would be willing to contract his 1911) clip for twenty, twenty-one or twenty-two cents would be a most foolish man. "Present indications almost cer tainly show that wool next year will be worth not less than twenty live cents, and when the buyers come around they should be com pelled to pay this figure if they are to do business. One of the best indications that wool is going to be high next year, is the activity of buyers thus early in the season. Each firm desires to get the con tracts closed now, for fear that the sheepmen will learn the actual worth of his fleece if contracting is delayed a month or two longer. Let each grower in the state hold out for twenty-five cents; if he does not get this figure from tiie buyers now. he will get it after the fleece is sheared next year."—Forsyth Times-Journal. Judge W. C. Crawford senten ced ExCashier Moore of the Glen Ullia bank to four years in the penitentiary and supend ed sentence. The charge against Mr. Moore was forgery, but the suspended sentencemeans that he will not have to serve time so long as he complies with the rules of the board of experts who have charge of paroled pris oners.—Pi'ess.

Kane, formerly of Villard, Minnesota, but recently of this place, died very suddenly at the home of his parents here last Friday, of heart failure. He was afflicted with tuberculosis and had come here with his parents just a month previously for the benefit of his health and seemed to be getting along very nicely until the last cold snap came when he con tracted a cold. He seemed, how ever, to be recovering from this when he was on Friday taken with a weak spell due to heart failure, and died a few hours afterward. The death was entirely unexpect ed and came as a great shock to the family, among whom are Mrs. Shear and Miss Hackett of this place and J. H. Kane, of Wibaux. The body was at once taken to the old home at Villard, Minneso ta, for burial, and the funeral held there on Monday.-Sentinel Butte Republican. COMMON FOR NO. DAKOTA Injunction Recently Serv ed on Booze Joint at Medora, N. Dak. Medora, N. D., Nov. 20—The Enforcement league got in its work at the Rough Riders hotel here, yesterday when the place was searched and cases of beer discovered. An injunction is now on the front part of the house. The Rough Riders hotel was erected in the winter of 1884 05 by George Fitzgerald, and was operated as a hotel by him until the fall of the curtain in 1887 Fitz lost it on a mortgage, when it became the property of the deMores company, and rpmain ed idle for over ten years, when it was sold to one Tom Crozier, and has, in the past twelve years passed through the hands of over half a dozen parties. The joy of life has always heen dis pensed and no one ever thought the enforcement people would ever trouble this little town among the hills. The hotel was formerly known as the Metro politan, but after Colonel Roose velt fought the Spanish war the name was changed to Rough Riders. Its terribly sad.—Far go Forum. CUPID is DILLIGENT Two Young Couple Made Happy the Past Week On Wednesday of iliis week, at the home of the bride in Ames, Iowa, occurred the marriage of Mr. E. D. Baker, of this place, and Miss Edna Thompson, a resident of the former mentioned city. A short time ago Mr. Baker de parted, supposedly, on a visit with friends and relatives at his former home in Iowa, but, evidently, he had considerable "unfinished busi ness" when starting out, rather than purely a visiting trip; and,' to say that he cunningly surprised his many Wibaux friends is but mildly expressing the fact, as the first ac count of the event was learned through the following announce ment in fine Ames (Iowa) Intelli gencer : "Mr. and Mrs. B. R. Nowlin have issued invitations for the wed ding of Miss Edna Thompson and Mr. E. D. Brker, of Wibaux, Mon tana, Wednesday evening, Novem ber 24th, at eight o'clock. Since a child, Miss Thompson has made her home with the Nowlin's and the wedding will take place at their country home south of town. Mr. Baker comes from Wibaux, Mon tana, and after the wedding will take his bride there, where they will be at home after January first." Mr. Baker has many friends here with whom the Pioneer joins in ex tending congratulations. Justice Bushell was given the honor of performing the wedding ceremony that made Mr. Tony Bauer and Miss Mary Michels man and wife, at the former's office here on Monday, last, the bride's pa rents being witnesses. Mr. Bauer has been a resident in the country just east of to« r n for several years and is recognized by all who know him as a faithful and ambitious young man, while the bride, who was a resident of near Beach, is an accomplished young lady who also has won many friends in this vicinity. Mr. and Mrs. Baur have taken up their residence on the groom's farm near Wibaux, and are receiv ing the congratulations of their many friends, with whom the Pio neer heartily joins. ITS VALVE IS NOT FULLY APPRECIATED Little attention is given the the Ready-Print by the general reader because of the impres sion that it is merely given to fill up space that the local print shop cannot fill with live matter for want of time and facilities for doing so much work. That Ready-Print is used for the rea sons given is true. But in these days of rapid transit, lightning rapididy in news gathering, and almost that rapidity in fully equipped printing offices for turning out work, the other idea that goes with the reason for us ing Ready-Print, viz., that it is necessarily stale in news service and tame in selection of matter, it is not true at all. The contin ued stories that are being print ed therein have been given more than ordinary notice, and should prove good reading. We feel that we have no reason to feel ashamed of this part of the ser vice we are providing for the Republican readers. Neither do we feel that we need apologize for the local pages; we did not design at this time to call attention to this part of the paper. We mention it now so that we do not intention ally create the impression among readers that we do not value the local pages as much as we do the others. We place just as high value on the local pages, but for other reasons than those given for calling attention to the Ready-Print. We hope that the good feeling shown towards us as evidenced by the steady in crease in our list will continue, and that subscribere will become firm friends, more than curious readers. PERMANENTNA TIONAL RANGE To be Established on Flat head Reservation For American Bison A permanent national range for Amercian bison is to establish ed on the Flathead Indian Res ervation in Montana. An ap propriation of $30,OCR r for the purchase of land, not to exceed 15,800 acres, and $10,000 for fencing was made by the last Congress. The Amercian Bison Society assumed the responsibily of stocking this range and quickly raised 10,000, which enables it to provide a herd of not less than forty buffaloes. These animals are being selected by Dr. Wil liam T. Bornaday, director of the New York Zoological Park, who is now in Montana for this pur pose. We hope that these eleventh hour efforts to save the Amer cian bison from complete extinc tion will be successful. From the countless thousands of buf faloes that only a generation ago covered the plains of the west, but a few hundred now remain. Such a wanton massa cre as marks their bloody trail is unparalled in Amercian his tory, but, before it is too late, we hope to be saved from the dis FIRST STATE BANK WIBAUX, MONTANA CAPITAL STOCK, $40,000.00 OFFICERS AND DIRECTORS: C.
