Roundup : : Montana It of ENCOUfMCIÜ PROSPECTS Enough Support Promised to Car ry Co. Division Measure Thru Senate. BOUNDARIES AND SLATE Compromise With Columbns Di vision Scheme—No Court House for 5 Years. L. R. Carroll, who has been in Helena lobbying in the interest of the new Musselshell county, re turned to Roundup Saturday even ing, bringing with him the encourag ing report that the prospects for the creation of the new county are exceedingly bright. Enough sup port has been promised to carry the measure thru the senate, after which the ower house will undoub edtly concurr with the action of the senate. The bill providing for the divis ion of Yellowstone and Fergus counties to create the new Mussel shell county has been drafted by Mr. Carroll and is now ready for its initial presentation to the legislature. It is probable that Major Edwards of Rosebud county will introduce the bill in the senate within the next day or two. The boundaries of the new county as given in the bill are as follows: Begining at the intersection of the north line of township 13 n. Rp. 30 with the Musselshell, west to the northwest corner of township 17. Rg. 21; thence south .to the south west corner of said township; thence west to northwest corner of town ship 12,range 19; thence south to the southeast corner of section 24, township 11, range 18, thence west to Careles Creek, following the course of that stream to the Mus' selshell to the point of intersection with range 20 and 21; thence to south west corner of township 6, range 21; thence south to the south west corner of township 20, range 22, thence east to southeast corner of township 5, range 26; thence north to southeast corner of section 25, township 6, range 26, following from there the summit of the Bull mountains to the northwest corner of township 8, range 31; thence in a northwesterly direction along the Rosebud county line to the Mussel shell and down that stream to the point of beginning. The boundaries as oridinally in tended conflicted with those of the new Roosevelt county, so a con ference was had with the Columbus lobby and a compromise reached. The territory in controversy was that in the extreme southwestern part of the proposed Musselshell county and consisted of five townships. Three of these were added to Roose velt county and two to Musselshell. The first sot of officers of the new is for H. is to is county, as provided for in the are as follows: hill, countv J. W. Newton, sioner. Danniel Slavton, county commis sioner. George, Bachman, county com missioner. Harry Drum, treasurer. Jos. Asbridge, Assessor. W. F. Strait, county clerk and recorder. E. F. Carter, clerk of court. Carl N. Thompson, county attor ney. Wm. J. Jameson, public admin istrator. T. W. Welsh, coroner. George Pennell, surveyor. Miss Bridgie Holland, superin tendent of schools. commis- ; ; Up to this time no one has been definintely slated for the office of sheriff. One of the provisions of the bill, and which is a commendable one, is that no court house is to be built for five years from the passage of the bill, or until such a time when the valuation of the new county shall exceed $5,000,000. Ronndup is designated as the temporary county seat. Mr. Carroll left again this morn ing for Helena to be present at the introduction of the bill, and will re main there as a member of the third house working in behalf o f the measure. \V. K. Quarles and M. H. Wall are still at the capital. These gentlemen have been doing some effective work during their stay in Helena. MURDER TRIAL Hinton to Be Tried for Murder of Mahaney Next Week.

CITIZENS BANK TO OPEN Roundup's Second Bank to Open Its Doors Next Week. The building to be occupied by the Citizens State Bank of Roundup is now practically completed, and the only thing which is now delay ing the opening of this financial in stitution to the public is the fact that it has not yet secured a charter from the state under which it will operate.

The fixtures and safes have been here for some little time and are now being put in place as rapidly as possible. The bank, having found it advisi ble to dispense with a vault, will have two safes, a fireproof one for books and papers, and a Victor maganese steel burglar proof safe. C. F.

At the dance given last Saturday night for the purpose of boosting the band, that organization made its first public appearance, and the way its renditions were received by the auditors is a sure index that the boys' endeavor to provide Roundup with a first class hand is being appreiated, Many words of praise were heard on every side, which, together with the substantial assistance given the boys by the large number who attended this affair, were indeed gratifying to them. About fifty couple were in attend ance at the dance, which is, per haps the largest crowd ever present at a dance in this city, and their enjoyment was complete as is testi fied to by the fact that nearly all stayed until the "Home, Sweet ; 11 nine" waltz in the wee sma' hours of the morning after. The music was furnished by < irady's orchestra, relieved occasion ally by the band and the Cresent Mandolin Club. The music of the last named organization came, in for a goodly share of flattering com ment which it certainly deserves. This orchestra, altho only recently organized, already ranks high in local musical circles in the quality of music produced. The band boys wish to publicly thank them for their beneficent help in making the dance a success. The hand boys are endeavoring to liquidate the debt on their in struments, and as a means to raise funds, have decided to have a dance every two weeks. Their next dance will he held Saturday, January 30th, and besides furnish ing a large portion of the music themselves, the hoys will also seive •me of their famous suppers prepar-} ed by themselves. You can't afford to miss it, and besides, the hoys need the money.
