Fight Hour Day.
The carpenters of East Roundup
who met several weeks ago to or
ganize a local union, received their
charter this week recognizing them
as a part of the United Brotherhood
of Carpenters and joiners of Ameri
ca and will hereafter he known as !
Local Union No. 1783. Geo. Olm
stead has been elected temporary
j president and E. H. Elsman score-1
11 ary, permanent officers to be chosen !
! at some future meeting. The union !
will meet every lirst and third Sat
urday in the month.
Considérable scabbing has been
going on here in direct violation of
I union principles and the local men
! have found the move toward organ
j ization necessary. Carpenters have
; been shipped in from the East not
: familiar with conditions here who
I have been in the habit of disregard
I ingtbeeight-hourlaw, which obtains
in this state, and also working for
less than the smiIc* which has had
a tendency to demoralize wages in
general. The working man of to
day is entitled t > a fair compensa
tion fur his labor and an eight-hour
day. which is not only provided by
law. hut recognized in all trades,and
the union men feel that this discri
mination is unfair. The union docs
not deny a man the right to come
litre to earn a living, hut docs in
I sist that lie alliliate with them and
live up to union principles, thereby
I protecting his own rights and those
of his follow workingmen, as well
as slutting out incompetent men.
At a meeting of the union Wed
nesday evening the following reso
lutions were adopted ill regard to
the eight-hour dav:
Bk it UKSol.VF.l) That we, the un
dersigned. recognize and uphold the
eight-hour law in the city of Round

Young Marlin Knocked Out..
The sporting gentry of Roundup
enjoyed a short but swift boxing
contest Monday evening in the new
Crane building between Young
Martin of Billings and the "Peoria
Kid" of Peoria. 111. Tim match
was painfully short lived lasting
only one round and resulting in the
putting out of business of the pugi
list from the city on the Yellowstone
by a sharp rap on the jaw. The
contest started out with every evi
dence of being a good light but the
Kid ' from the east was evidently
oo quick of action and aggressive
for Young Martin, and when he
landed on the latter's lower maxiliar
Martin sunk to the floor and staid
there while the referee slowly counted
ten with no attempt to get up and
renew the combat. Kitin' r the " IV
oria Kid had Y "ting Martin badly
worsted < r eise it was one of those
, eut-and-dried affairs.
! Tlie preliminary wrestling and
boxing n>at< hen wi-rr more interest
ing Mid exeiling than the principal
i event. Otto Wilson took two falls
out of three with the fanion- "Saw
lust Kill" in a good mute!, both
gentlemen showing considerable
skill and seit nee in the mat art.
The boxing match between "Batt
ling" Nelson and" N.ovey" was also
good being declared a draw. Frank
Leahy of O'Neil. Nebraska acted as
refer..*-* for the different events.

Pleasant Social Event.
The dance given last Saturday
evening in the new drugstore build
ing proved a decided success and
was unboubtehly the crowning fea
ture of the social doings of East
Roundup thus far. Over liftv num
bers were sold which would show
that fully a hundred people were
present to participate in tlie event,
it being a matter of general suprisc
where all the fair ladies came from.
There were people present from
Musselshell. Elso, Ilarlowton and
other distant places who all voted
that they had if most pleasant time.
The music furnished by the Marcey
es orchestra assisted by Otto Wilson
and Mrs. J. B. Ryan, was par excel

i last familiar strains of old "Home
| Sweet Home" died away. Supper

A Fine Art Bridle,
"Cal" Millard last week received
a horsehair bridle which had been
made by inmates of tlie penitentiary
at Deer Lodge and which was sent
to him by an old friend who is serv
ing a seven year term there for per
jury in an endeavor to shield a pal
who was being tried for murder.
The bridle is of superb workman
ship and shows to a marked degree
how well the artistic talent of some
p the convicts have been developed.
This kind of work has for many
a ve . irH ), een ;l source of pride to the
: inmates of the Deer Lodge penitent
iary and ii this bridle is a criterion
, of their work they are certainly not
to be excelled in that line. The
bridle in question is made entirely
