NEW ROADS IN PARK President L. W. Hill of the Great Northern passed thru here last Thursday on his way west after taking a week's tour thru the pro posed Glacier park region. Mr. Hill contemplates inaugurat ing a transportation company, in connection with the Great North ern thru the proposed park, on the same lines that the Northern Pacific has in Yellowstone park. During the past two weeks Mr. Mill has gone over the proposed route on pack horses with his party and Thos. Dawson, Dan Doody and Chas. Buckley as guides. The present plans are for build ing a large hotel at Midvale and from there tourists can take a stage or automobile, whichever is adopt ed, north to St. Marys Lake then over the divide at Gunsight pass into the Lake McDonald region anil back to the railroad again at Beiton where another large hotel will be built. This route will take in all the glaciers and points of interest, in this famous region. Hotels and road houses will be established all along the route so that tourists can he accommodated at any of the places where they wish to stop. Mr. Hill made a special visit to Kalispell to interview Superintend Haines of the Blackfeet forest, with reference to securing the co-oper ation of the forestry department in making some of the points of inter est in the proposed Glacier Park more accessible to tourists. The official photographer of the G. N. is up in that region taking pictures of the different places which will be used in pamphlets, for ad vertising purposes as they are plan ning on an extensive and persis tant advertising campaign to in duce tourist travel to the region about Lake McDonald and the country beyond, which contains some of the most beautiful scenry, the likes of which cannot be found any where within the borders of the state. It is being expected that the Glacier park bill, which was killed at the last session of Congress, will be passed this year, and it looks as if it will without a doubt from the way the Great Northern is trying to force itself into this region. BASEBALL MEETING. A business meeting of the base ball fans was held in Matthew's hall Monday evening to hear the report of the committee which has been so liciting the town for the past two weeks with a view to finding out if money enough could he raised to form a stock company.

The report of the committee was accepted, temporary officers were elected, and proceedings were start ed to formulate a stock company. The following officers were elected temporarily until the company is formed, when the stockholders will elect permanent officers: President— H. T. Mayfield. Vice President—Ed Bugg. Secretary— H. C.

Green and Sam Brock, a well known railroad man of this place, were hunting for big game in the Big Horn Basin 25 miles north of Midvale. It had come noon time and they stopped to rest on the side of a mountain in a huckleberiy patch. Green stopped to eat some huckleberries while Brock went ahead about 200 feet to prepare camp. While Green was alone there, two huge grizzly hears came out of the brush with out any warning and made straight for him. They probably had cubs near, other wise a bear seldom attacks a man. Green shot at one of the bears with out raising his gun to his shoulder, and wounded him so badly he drop ped and started squealing terribly. Before he could get a shot at the other one it was on him and began chewing his arms and legs. The squealing of the wounded bear attracted the other's attention and it went over to it which gave Green a chance to get away. He ran toward Brock who could not hear Green's cries for help on account of the wounded hear mak ing so much noise and was standing there waiting for another hear to show up. The bear seeing Green run away, followed after him, an l when begot where Brock could see what was going on it was impossible fo rhim to get a shot at the bear because Green was right in front of it and he could not shoot without hitting Green. The bear caught Green once more with a terrible blow with his paw and knocked him over a cliff and then followed and was about to chew him again. Brock did not dare shoot for fear he would kill Green, so he shot in the air and yelled as much like a bear as he could to attract its at tention. This was effective and it made right for Brock as fast as it could run, hut Brock was ready for it and a well aimed shot dropped it in its tracks. Brock then gave his attention to his wounded partner and bound up his wounds as best he could and carried him three miies to camp and then left him there and went to a neighboring camp two miles farther where he secured the assis tance of 0. Cobb, John Highmark and H. L, Hammond, of Kalispell and H. Dawson, of Midvale, who helped carry Green eight miles on an improvised litter to the U. S. reclamation camp in charge of C. D. Shaver, who did all he could for the injured man. Green was taken from the last camp to Midvale by wagon where he was put on No. 3 and brought to Whitefish where he was put. in the hospital. His whole body is terribly chewed and lacerated by the bear's teeth and claws. There arc 30 big tcetli marks on his side and both his legs and arms arc badly torn. The bear took a hold of him and shook him like a dog would a rat, so it's a wonder that he had any flesh left. The heavy clothing he wore is prob ably what saved his life. It is expected that he will recover alright, but his wounds are large and painful and it will he some time before he can get around again. Brock returned again last Sun day to get the bear skins, and two mountain goats they had killed the day before. Try a Pilot "Want" Ad. CHAMBER OF COMMERCE The Chamber of Commerce held a regular meeting in the council rooms Tuesday evening, with but a small attendance. The matter of placing a sign and advertising matter at the depot was discussed and the secretary was in structed to carry out this work. H. C. Wegner having resigned, Jos. Reed was elected treasurer, and H. C. Anderson was placed on the advertising committee in place of E. A. Southwick, who has moved away. j j BALL GAME On account of arrangements not being completed until Saturday af ternoon, there was no chance to make the fact known that there was to he a hall game between Kal ispell and Whitefish, so but very few knew that there was anything going on until about 5 o'clock Sun day afternoon, when a telephone message announced that Whitefish had shut out Kalispell on their own grounds. . The news spread over the town like wild lire and there was a large crowd of fans who awaited the ar rival of the players on the late train, when they were wined and dined to the best in the town. The hoys went to Kulispeli on No. 4, and only a handful of fans accompanied them, hut they had things their own way. The excite ment was intense, and at times you could hear a pin drop, and then again a cannon could not lie heard if it was exploded in their midst. It was mostly a pitcher's battle all the way through. Goins and Taylor were the opposing pitchers, and both were at their best. Tay lor struck out II men, and allowed but three hits, while Goins struck out 8, with hut three hits against him. The peculiar part of the thing was that all the hits were made by the batteries of the two teams. For Kalispell, Taylor got one hit and Sorenson two, while for Whitefish, Goins got one and Barbour two. It was a lively game from start to finish, and free from wrangling. Ben Young, a Spokane man, um pired the game to the satisfaction of all and there was only one oc casion in the ninth inning when there was any dispute about his de cisions. Goins made the only run that was made, and Marten got in at the same time, hut they made him go back on account of a ground rule which the Kalispell team has re garding passed halls. In the ninth inning Barbour sprained his ankle in sliding to first, hut in spite of the intense pain he continued the game and is now hobbling around on a pair of crutches. All the fans who saw the game say it was the best game that has been played this season, and if the weather is favorable there will ho another game Sunday on the White fish grounds. BANQUET FOR BASEBALL TEAM To show their appreciation to the hall team for the excellent game they put up in Kalispell Sunday, J. E. Cavanaugh and II. T. Senay gave a banquet at the Hori cafe Sunday night after the team ar rived from Kalispell. All the players of the team were present, besides a number of fans who were at the game. After a most excellent supper consisting of fried chicken, fruits, salads and the necessary trimmings had been stowed away, II. T. Mayfield acted as toastmaster, and everyone pres ent was given a chance to respond and express himself, which was all praise for the ball boys and hopes that we can stick together and have as good a team next year. The game was played over sev eral times liefore they left the table and a vote of thanks was extended to both Mr, Cavanaugh and Mr, Senay for being sqch royal hosts, Begining on October 23, 1901), the Northern Pacific will inagurate another radical change in its trans continental traffic, beginning fur the first time in its history the run ning of solid trains from Chicago to Portland and return.
