FRIDAY, -1ULY 20, 1912 NUMBER 29 Special Trains For State Fair The effective train service which the State Fair management has arranged for into Helena on all Montana railroads during the week beginning September 2d, insures the largest crowd that ever visited Helena, in attendance at the 1912 exposition, according to President Lewis Pen well. Special trains of Pullman cars will be run into Helena over the Croat, Northern, the Northern Pacific, the Chicago, the Milwau kee and St. Paul, and the Oregon Short Line. The Pullman cars on each of these trains will be park ed in a convenient locality and the passengers will occupy them dur ing their stay in the capital city. In view of the ii.creased seat ing capacity arranged for at the race track this year, the Board of Directors has decided to charge no admission whatever to the bleach ers, which means that there will be more than 4,000 free seats at the race track every afternoon. The announcement of the Board of Directors that three night shows will be held at the Fair grounds, solves in a large measure the prod lern of evening entertainment for the visitors to the city. The grounds will be brilliantly illumi nated and the attractions will be in the nature of vaudeville stunts, and Indian and cowboy sports. The program each night will end with fireworks display. The city of Helena is prepared to accommodate more transients this fall than ever before, and furthermore the Commercial Club will again operate a free informa tion bureau and will protect visit ors from exhorbitant charges at hotels, restaurants, barber shops etc,.

Baker's Hopes Are Shattered On Thursday morning the com mittee appointed by the Commer cial Club, consisting of Al. Davis, Judge T. J. Bushell and D. E. McCann, to go up to Miles City and present the petition against Fallon couty, to the Custer County Commissioners, returned with honors galore. The total registered votes gotten for the new county in the Wibaux territory was 454, and the Com mercial Club of Wibaux had secur ed 346 signers against the creation of the new county in the Carlyle and Dennis territory. As it only takes fif f y per cent of signers against, to throw out the petition for, the Wibaux committee had something over 100 to the good. The assessed valuation of the territory who signed against the forming of the new county was $1,623,299, and ns the proposition stood the Baker delegation was short just about this amount from the $4,000,000 required by the laws of the state. When the board met on Tues day forenoon additional petitions were filed and they were compell ed to adjourn in order to have the county clerk check over the names and verify the signers, but on Wednesday morning they met in session again and with the above figures staring them in the face they just did what was required of them and threw -be disposition down. This is a terrible blow to the Baker country, a great victory for Wibaux, but the Baker people put up a good fight and should be good losers. Montana First In Livestock The supremacy of the state of Montana in the live stock indus try of the eight states composing the Rocky Mountain division is evidenced by the figures just issu ed from tha census bureau cover ing the statistics gathered by the thirteenth census of the ten year period between 1900 and 1910. These figures give Montana first place in the total number of all livestock, first place in the num ber of horses and first in the value of the domestic animals in this group of states composed of Mon tana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and Nevada. Montana is given sec ond place in sheep and third place in cattle, hogs and poultry. Under the captain of "All Live stock" the state of Montana is given first place with 85,663,187 head, and increase of 64.2 per cent over 1900. Idaho shows a much larger percentage of in creace but a much less number of animals. Wyoming with an in crease of 67.6 per cent, is the only neighboring state with a larger in creased percentage, but this state is third in the list as to numbers.
