VOLUME 5 WIBAUX, DAWSON COUNTY, MONTANA, FRIDAY, APRIL 28, 1911 NUMBER 16 Fallon County Makes No Hit Carlyle People are not Enthusiastic over Baker's Proposition From the Miles City Independent. Carlyle, Mont., April 25.—The county division game as being played has more intricacies than would appear on the surface, and unless present signs fail some inter esting and amusing details will be brought to light. It appears to be a clear ease of "double cross" all around, with the Bakerites as the star actors. The people of this burg were inclined to the belief at first that it would be a real good thing to get into the game, with Baker as the seat of government of the proposed new county, but down here we have got over it. We have come out of the trance and have at last Dome to the conclusion that we were chasing a delusion and a snare. Baker, Ismay and Ekalaka are now in for it and it will be amuse ment for the people of Carlyle to watch their maneuvers. That they will be unable to agree is now a foregone conclusion, as all of the places are anxious for the county seat. If there could be three coun ty seats, then we could see where mailers could be amicably adjust ed, but under the circumstances it appears to us that it is a case of love's labor lost. A remonstrance petition is now in circulation, and is' being quite generally signed throughout the proposed new county. It is under stood that it will be presented shortly after the petition for the new county is presented by the Bakerites. Commissioner W. A. Cameron was here some days ago and went over the country roads, and the people here received the assurance that we would be given much con sideration this year, which news was received with a great deal of satisfaction by the farmers of this section. With good road facilities the people of Carlyle will not be so anxious to join the crusade for the new county seat at Baker. The outlook for good crops in this section this year are fine. The acreage is larger than ever and we have had some moisture. On the whole the outlook for the future of the Carlyle country is assuring. Tailor Ready for Business l - J. H. Bernhart, the tailor, whom w ? as mentioned in a recent issue of the Pioneer as having decided to locate in Wibaux, arrived the first of the w r eek from Miles City, and expects to open for business the latter part of the week. The shop is located second door east of the postotfice. He will make a special effort to meet the demands for made-to-or suits—many of w hich we heretofore have often been compelled to pur chase in the cities—though lie will also do pressing, cleaning, repair ing, and block old hats. As previously mentioned in the Pioneer, Mr. Bernhardt is recom mended as a first class tailor, and until very recently has been filling a position where only such work men are employed. Note his an nouncement elsewhere in this issue. MRS. BLOOMER REVISITS THE EARTH. MY OLDiBLOOMERS OF 50 YEARS AGO ALL®OVER.*AND THE MEN OF PARIS. IMEW'YORK AND BALTIMORE, JU5T AS GREAT^FOOLS AS EVER t & Hi r $>* to j^wdi r A —Jones in Boston Herald. Prof. Newman A Bad Actor "Newman the Great," well known to Richland county resi dents by his several appearances in the local opera house and in other towns in the county, according to the Valley County News, of Glas gow, Montana, got himself into a peck of trouble there recently and left town minus about $200 as a reminder of the error of his ways. It teems that Prof. Newman had picked up a small boy somewhere and was using him in the course of his hypnotic performances. The boy told a tale of abuse which savored of peonage and roused the sympathy of the citizens and an investigation and the subsequent arrest of the Professor. The News, in conclusion, says it would be ashamed to print a detailed account CONCRETE SUB BRIDGES PROVE PRACTICAL AND ECONOMICAL NORTHERN PACIFIC NISTAIXS MANY During the past two years many of tlie smaller pile and timber trestles on the Northern Pacilie lines have been replaced by structures consisting of reinforced concrete slabs on reinforced concrete piers, supported on concrete piles. One of these structures is shown herewith. They represent many advantages for use where the maximum height does not ex ceed 20 feet and where the streams bridged are comparatively free from drift and ice. The ballasted deck permits lin ing and surfacing by the section crews Coacr»t» Slab Bridge* on tUe Worthorn PaclJlo, of the deplorable and degrading influences following the wake of this man, who of extraordinary ability and pow r er, is apparently a moral degenerate spreading a con taminating influence all along bis route.—Hankinson (N. D.) News. New Passenger Schedule A new passenger schedule be came effective here the first of the w r eek, when the time of train No. 3, west bound, was changed from 4:39 to arrive at 4:53 p. in., and train No. 7, going the same way, now arrives at 8:54 p. m., which is 22 minutes earlier than the' old schedule. The most beneficial change was made in the arrival of No. 6, eastbound, which used to arrive at 6:10 a. m., but is now due to arrive at 7:06, or 56 minutes later, thus allowing passengers east an opportunity to get their break fast before departing. and makes track which rides as well as that upon an embankment. The cost of maintenance is reduced to the minimum, as no cleaning, painting or adjusting are required. In constructing these trestles, the slabs and piles are cast at a central plant, and when cured, arc shipped to the bridge sites, the rest of the work being done by the regular division forces. The piles are driven by a steel track driver equipped with a 4T>00 pound drop ham mer, and a water jet. The head of the Garcia Faniiiy Have Reunited Reunited after a series of trials and troubles, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Garcia will arrive in Minneapolis today from Chicago. The wife and her two children for whom the hus band made two fruitless searches of the metropolis, were finally lo cated at 1849 Morgan street, Chi cago, and there Garcia found her two days ago. There was a tearful reconciliation and the woman de cided to return to Minneapolis and take her place once more in the house of the man whose name she bears. Stanley Monkowski, the man who was connected with the disap pearance of Mrs. Garcia, is said to be wanted by the authorities in Seattle. Mrs. Garcia with her two children was to have met Monkow pile is protected during driving by a steel cap, fitted with a cushion and wooden follower. The best progress in driving is made by short, quick blows with the heavy hammer in conjunction with the use of the stream of water. The piles stand a great deal of pound ing, and can he driven in formations in which a wooden pile would he shat tered. Tli: Northern Pacific's plant for man ufacturing tlic concrete piles, slabs and pipe is at Glendive, Montuna. Will Meet at Dennis May 6 Owing to Rain, Date Of Elevator Meet ing was Postponed The party, consisting of two car loads, to Dennis on last Saturday evening, in the interests of the Farmers' elevator soon to be erect ed at that place, experienced rather an unpleasant trip owing to the heavy rains previous to starting out and a few more showers before reluming. However, they returned home safe and without any serious mishaps—aside from getting stuck in the mud—though we take it for granted that the drivers kept a foot on the "soft pedal" the greater part of the time, while "agnus Dei," who, being addicted to noth ing stronger than butter-milk, did honors with the cork puller. The fact that the good people of Dennis we— blessed with a most excellent rain on this occasion pre vented the farmers from getting together, as they had planned to do, so another meeting date was set for Saturday, May 6th, when all interested in the movement are requested to be present. The party took refuge for the night at the Davis ranch, after making a call at Mr. l)~>ni L', and bright (?) and early the following morning (Sunday) they proceeded to make hast for the city—but, at that, they arrived too late for church. ski at Winona, but the meeting fell through and the man later sent a telegram from Chicago, signing the name of a doctor and saying tiiat he had attempted to lake his life. Mrs. Garcia fled to Chicago and went into hiding. She was not located until several days ago, when a letter to friends here re vealed her whereabouts.— Minne apolis Tribune. »loe McFillin, former woolbuyer and wool grower, now a woolgrower only, is in the city from his home at Wibaux, where he has about 7,000 sheep on the range. Joe is an ar dent county divisionist—that is, a Wibaux county divisionist — the Baker idea doesn't have any allure ments for him. As to the prospec tive price of wool this year, he is of the opinion that about 18 cents at least is necessary for wool grow ers to break even under present conditions of labor and food prices and necessities of feeding on ac count of restricted range.—Miles City Journal.
