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
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.

RESUME DYNAMITE INQUIRY.
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
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
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.

" BELLE of DAKOTA'
Countryman & Albertson
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
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.

Washington Dec.29.—Alaska mining
conditions during the year 1911 gen
erally were favorable according to the
annual report of Alfred Brooks, of
the U. S. Geological Survey now in
course of preparation. The produc

The total value in 1911 is estimated
at $20,370,000. In 1910, it was $16,88
3,678. 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

practice of the Atlantic Fleet this year
the idea of ridding a ship as far as

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
