Armed wi'li copies of the sections
of the statutes of the state of Montana
which prohibit the conducting of
games of chance, Chief of Police Joe
Pyles on Tuesday morning served
notice on all saloons, pool halls, con
fectionery stores and other places of
amusement in Roundup where such
games have been in vogue that viola
tions of the law would be vigorously j
prosecuted. The order, which comes
within the provisions of sections S406 j
and 8416 of the Revised Code of Mont- ;
ana, covers games such as poker, solo
and other card games, dice, slot ma- j
chines lotteries, raffles, gift enter
prises, etc., for money or representa
tive of value. Many of these appar- 1
ently innocent games of chance have
been included in the regular course
of every day business ill practically
every place of amusement in Roundup,
and the proprietors of the various
places effected by the order feel the
enforcement of the law will work a
hardship on them. The conducting of
these games of chance have become ;
universal, however, and the practice
so prenicious amoung young boys that ;
the authorities have deemed it advis
able to put a stop to it.
Every known form ofchance is includ- 1
ed in the order, and raffles conducted
by churches and charitable institu- j
tions will come under the ban as well.
A number of the proprietors of
places of amusements which are hit ;
the hardest by the chief's order do j
not take very kindly to the attempt
at enforcement of this law, and it is
understood that they will take steps
with a view to have the order modi
fied somewhat. Their contention is.
tnat the law in question is a dead let
ter and is not enforced generally.
The authorities, on the other hand,
have signified their intention to en
force the law to the letter, and will
vigorously prosecute all violations.
INQUIRY INTO ALLEGED BRIBERY
Grand Jury Takes up Alleged Bribery
of Jurors in Me Namara Trial.
(Record Special)
Los Angeles, Cal. Jan. 4.—The de
finite and semi-official statement was
made here today that the new grand
jury which convened this morning
had begun an inquiry in the alleged
bribery and attempted bribery of jur
ors in the J. B. McNamara trial. C. S.
Harrow, formerly cheif counsel for
the McNamara brothers, said, how
ever, that he had not yet been sub
poened to appear before the grand
jury in connection with charges that
were made following the arrest of
B. H. Franklin, detective for defense,
on a bribery charge a few days prior
to the confessions of the McNamaras.
Harrow today called upon J. Harri
man who with L. Ba\is has been re
tained to defend O. Tveitmoe, A.
Johannes, E. A. Clany and J. E. Mun
sey, the labor leaders indicted last
Saturday by the Federal grand jury
on tlie charge of having conspired
with the McNamara and McManigal to
transport dynamite from the east to
California in violation of the Inter
state Commerce laws. In this con
nection it is said that the dynamite
conspiracy probe dropped for a time
by the Federal Grand Jury. The coun
ty jurors are thought to have decided
to begin their investigation where the
Federal Grand Jury, which is expect
ed to make its final report tomorrow
or Saturday,left off, at the point
where it can be determined what per
sons, it any, were implicated with
the McNamara brothers in the con
spiracy to blow up the Los Angeles
Times building which was dynamited
Oct. 1, 1910, with the loss of 21 lives.

Let Us S mile
The thing that goes the farthest
Towards making life worth while,
That costs the least and does the
most,
Is just a pleasant smile.
The smile that bubbles from a heart
That loves its fellow men
Will drive away the cloud of gloom
And coax the sun again.
It's full of worth and goodness, too,
With manly kindness blent;
It's worth a million dollars,
And it doen't cost a cent..

Married at Butte Wednesday Evening.

L. R. Carroll, one of the owners
and editors of the Roundup Tribune,

previous knowledge of the event
which was to transpire. Mr. Carroll
left here last week on a business trip
to points in Idaho and Washington,
which was nothing out of the ordinary.
On Tuesday Mrs. Russell left for
Butte, and altlio there were some who
then surmised that there was some
thing unusual in the air, nothing cK
finite was learned regarding the mat
ter until yesterday afternoon when a
telegram was received stating that a
marriage license had been issued them
at Butte. The wedding ceremony was
preformed Wednesday evening at 7:00
o'clock by Rev. Blackistone of the
Butte Episcopal church, at the lat
ter's home. J. Thyne and Norman W.
Hick, friends of the young people
witnessed the ceremony.
The couple was expected home on
last night's Olympian and a delega
tion of young people was awaiting
their arrival at the depot until after
midnight. The train, however, was
quite late and the party disbahded.
Expecting some kind of a demonstra
tion upon their arrival lier, the new
ly married couple did not take the
Olympian but boarded the Columbian
instead, arriving in Roundup unex
pectedly at 6:30 this morning. A re

Scared Away Before Stealing
Anything.
H. F. Bruce, one of the proprietors
of the Hendrix Mercantile Store on
Second street east averted a burglary
of that business establishment early
Wednesday morning. .Mr. Bruce who
lives above the store was awakened
about one o'clock by the noise caused
by the breaking of a pain of glass, and
dressing himself proceeded to investi
gate the matter. His coming evident
ly caused the burglar some alarm as
he left the store post haste and with
out stopping to annex anything of
value. An attempt had been made
to tap the cash register but Mr.
Bruce's appearance on the scene was
rather inopportune and prev«nted the
looting of the till.
The authorities are working on the
case b>* no one oonnected with the
attempted burglary has thus far been
apprehended.
