Roundup to Billings Billings Wants Roundup Electric Line to Connect With Similar Line Out of Billings. Billings, Jan. 1.—Agitation for the physical connection of the tracks of the B. & N. and the Chicago, Milwaukee and Puget Sound railway, at the junction of those lines has been inaugaurated by the people of Round and the Musselshfell cbuntry. The matter has been pending so long be fore the railway commission that the people to be ser/ed along the line of the Milwaukee road have become dis couraged and now propose the build ng of an electric road between Round up and Billings. Overtures have been made to the capitilists building the Billings street railway to extend 1st urban road north to connect with an electric line to be built from Roundup to Klein, Davis and West Roundup, a distance of eight miles. Under present conditions a trip to St. .Paul can be made from Roundup in about the same time as it takes to go from Roundup to Billings. The people of Roundup have sub scribed more than $10,000 for the electric line connecting that city with ^Mine No. 3, Klein and Davis, It is proposed to sell power and furnish ughetRstgyhue etaoin setta etaoetao electricity for lighting purposes by the same company. In one hour a com mittee raised $10,800 for the new road, which is expected, will be built next trjnmer. The work offers no special difficulties, little grading being re quired. THie line would add largely to the population of the rich valley of Half Breed creek, south of Roundup, on which Klein is located.. BATTLING NELSON WINS Fight Was Nearly All Redmonds for Eight Rounds. New Orleans, Jan. 1.—Battling Nel son won the decision over Jack Red mond of St. Paul at the end of twenty rounds in the tjout here yesterday. The fight was nearly all Redmonds up to the ninth round, when Nelson opened up, after which there was ,.t tle doubt as to the outcome. In the seventh and eight rounds Redmond battered Nelson's face almost at will hammering his nose and ears with right and lefts and slipped in short jabs to the stomach that appeared to daze Nelson. Redmond came back confident at tlie begining of the ninth trying for a knockout, but Nelson took a brace and sitôt in hard right and then a left to Redmond's stomach and rights and lefts to the face that brought the big crowd to its feet. From the ninth to the end, Nelson had Redmond backing away and hanging on. There was much clinching and wrestling, increasing towards the close. Richmond tried to come back in the twenthieth, but Nelson' blows on his stomach had taken most of the fight out of him. Nelson then shoot in rights and lefts to the stomach and head repeatedly. Nelson going strong when the final gong sounds. i jr «8 Um y k » 1 ir Essential to Comfort Perfection V/armth Is essential to com fort. As you grow older, it is hardly less essential to health.

Indianapolis, Ind., Jan. 3.—After a holiday recess, the federal grand jury which is investigating the alleged dy namite consp.racy rsconved today It is understood that Frank Eckoff of Cincinnati, friend and confidant of John McNarmara, will be one of the first witnesses to testify. Soon after the government investi gation of the dynamiting cases began, Eckhoff, who is a core maker, disap peared from Cincinnati with detec tives of the Burns agency. Since that time he has been kept hidden, but he will be produced Bhortly, according to Williams J. Burns, who is here today. Eckhoff's testimony is regarded as second in importance only to Ortio McManigal's. It is alleged that the Cincinnati man was familiar with details of the dynamite plots. When he confessed he led detectives to eastern cities where, he said, by the iornworkers were found. Before the holiday recess the grand jury had ben rteghrkeoEekewisesdl jury had been in session a week and a half and had questionned a hundred witnesses. Careful examination of the great bulk of documentary evid ence will take much of the jury's time from now on. About 1,500 let ters and papers found amoung the ef fects of the iorn workers' headquart ers here will have to be gone over. More than 30,000 documents and let ters were seized, but only 1,500 were selected as having a possible bearing on the investigation. Everything Fine FINE " FLOURe T1AKES7' FINE * BREAD/. WE HAVE THE FINEST Ask the wives who have used ours for years. " BELLE of DAKOTA' and "DUCHESS" FLOUR Countryman & Albertson Baseball Supreme Court Cincinnati, O., Jan. 3.—With a num ber of highly important matters on the docket for decision, the Supreme Court of the United States of Base ball, otherwise known as the Nation al Commission, convened here today. Bresnahan vs. Murphy is the title of one of tne most interesting cases to be tried. Roger Bresnahan, manag prenc.ubjesliv sh aro-twacaksetao eta er of the St. Louis Cardinals, has preferred charges against Charles Webb Muphy, manager ofthu Chicago Cubs, allaging that the latter pub lisly said that he "had something on" Bresnahan and intended to run him out of organized baseball. The sit uation is the result of the wordy war fare that has ensued since the Car inal chief refused to waive on First Baseman Saier at a recent baseball meeting in New York. Bresnahan demands that Murphy be prosecuted unless he makes a public apology. Hermann is the chairman of the Sup reme Court trimvirate—his associates being Ban Johnson and Tom Lynch— and he is oenontshediKietaoetaoetao and he is none to friendly toward Murphy,( while the American League City leader for years. If the Nation czar has been gunning for the Windy al Commission holds a club over Mur phy, Ban Johnson may be depended upon to use plenty of elbow grease in applying it. There are some, however, who in timate that Mr. Murphy is crazy like a fox and that he is only striving to keep his name and that of his club constantly before the public during the entire off-season, thereby get ting plenty of press werk the year round. His quarrels with various man agers, it is alleged, are merely clever press agents stunts. What action, if any, will be taken about the New York ticket scandal by the commission is not known. Chairman Herman declares that the commission has been conducting a "rigid investigation," and has spent more than $1,500 in detective work. "But what can the poor National Commission do?" inquires Augustus, plaintively. "We know here were scalpers in both New York and Phila delphia, but did they come by their wares through the faithlessness of the officials of the clubs engaged in the serious? That, gents, we must de termine." So far tlie matter remains right where it was when a large part of New York's population was cussng out the Gaints and all organized baseball as he coughed up any price the scalp ers chose to ask for admission. Another vital question is the peace agreement which binds all organized baseball. This treaty expired on Sun day last and must immediatley be re newed in order to protect the terri torial rights of various leagues which comprise base ball's big family. The charter under which major and minor leagues have labored for a decade has outlived its usefulness. The entire situation must be adjust ed along more up-to-date lines. Three big minors have been promised higher classification. The majors have gen erally agreed to curb some of their privileges for the general welfare. All of these various changes are incor porated in the new peace agreement which is before the commission today. Members of the commission are not worried about the new outlaw league which proposes to begin business next season under the name of the United States IJbague. Every year about tliis time such annorganization is formed, but they always fall through. The promoters of the new organization say they will choose their eight clubs from among New York, Buffalo,Brooklyn, Washington, Rich mond, Baltimore, Pittsburg,Cincinnati, Newark and Reading, thus invading the territory of the National, Ameri can, International, Virginia and Tri State Leagues. New York, Brooklyn, Washington and Richmond, it is stat ed, are definitely decided upon and ar rangements have already been made to secure grounds. In 1 DOS the Union League was organized to cover much of the same territory, but went to pieces in the middle of the season. ♦ * •» FIERCE FIGHT IN PROGRESS * - ♦ ❖ * ♦ Pekin, Jan. 1.—An army of 4,- ♦ ♦ OOOrevolutionary troops march- Y 4* ed to the city of Hankow yes- ♦ terday evening.

It is a remarkable fact that the gold production alone exceeded the total mineral value of 191-, the esti mate for 1911 being 17,150,000. Washington, Jan.l.—Every year the battle practice in the American Na vy more closely approximates the con ditions of actual warfare. In the spring practice of the Atlantic Fleet this year the idea of ridding a ship as far as possible of combustible material and wooddork that might cause splinters in action is to be carried out. The plans contemplated the removal of all wooden boats, the bunks and wood en furniture.
