MUSSELSHELL COUNTY-1911 VOLUME III.-NO. 21 ROUNDUP, MONTANA, FRIDAY, AUGUST 19 , 1910 $2.00 Per Year in Advance Seventy Ministers and Laymen Attend Fourth Annual Session of North Montana Conference. "GET THERE" QUALITIES Representative Charley Pray, Mon tana's Pack Horse in Congress, Accomplishes Much. The great state of Montana, the third largest in the Union, growing so fast that its population has doubled in ten years, and with ap proximately 600,000 people within its broad walls, is represented in the lower branch of Congress by Charles N. Pray. And if there is anyone w r ho has an idea that Con gressmen do not have to work, he ought to watch Representative Pray. *He is at it early and late, and the pack horses that climb the Western mountains do not carry half as heavy burdens as are loaded on Montana's public servant in Wash ington. I have found him at his office close onto the midnight hour, and it is mv impression that he is one of the hardest and most per sistent workers in Congress. Con gressman Pray "drives" things at Washington, he goes the rounds of the departments, chases hither and thither to look after the wants of a great people, and is a regular at tendant at all sessions. His man ner impresses one as mild, and he has a conciliatory, convincing way of getting things. But when this mode of procedure fails, then there is another way for which Montana is famous, and for which its Con gressman has something of a record at home and at the Capital—he fights! One day he had a bill be fore the House to reimburse to the extent of a few hundred dollars a couple of old residents of Montana on account of rent they had paid out of their own pockets while of ficers in a land office. It was a comparatively small matter, but it meant a great deal to the men in terested, and it was in every respect a proper claim. The Republican organization had a sudden fit of economv, the Democrat side was seized with the same kind of a spasm, and the house was in an up roar. The man from Montana was in his element, and he hung Champ Clerk's scalp along with a lot of Republican ones to his belt. On a division there was an apparent majority against the bill, but Mr. Pray demanded tellers, and then his friends came to his relief and the cloak rooms were scoured for additional votes, with the result that the bill was passed by sixteen votes. When the Sundry Civil Bill was being considered Mr. Pray of fered an important amendment, carring an additional appropriation of $160,000, for the establishment of mine rescue stations throughout the country. The appropriations committee wouldn't listen, and on the floor the powerful leaders, Tawney and Fritzgerald, of the Re [Continued on Page Eight.] Don't Forget LABOR DAY Roundup, Mont.
