Entered as second class matter June 5, 1908, at the post office at Roundup, Montana, under the Act. of March 3, 1879. FRIDAY, JANUARY 12, 1912 Representatives Dan Slayton and Joe Asbridge, who have been inter esting themselves in securing the es tablishment of a national game pre serve in the Snowy Mountain Forest Reserve, and who last winter secured the passage of a joint memorial in the state legislature asking Congress to make provisions for such a project, should have the assistance of every citizen in this section of the state in this matter. Senator Dixon now has charge of the matter in Congress, while Representative Pray is follow ing it in the House, but according to advice received here they are meet ing with determinded opposition for some reason or other. The federal government does not seem to be fav ably disposed toward projects of this kind at this time. The establishment of a game preserve in the Snowy Mountains would be a source of much gratification to the people of this section of the state and for generations to come. If some thing along this line is not done large game which is already becoming scarce will soon be a thing of the past, which no citizen had he it in his power would countenance for a moment. The preserve would have to be stocked with elk and mountain sheep, deer be ing there in sufficient numbers should action be taken now. The duties of the forest rangelis who now patrol that section could be made to include the protection of game without any additional expense or trouble. The establishment of the game preserve I would not deprive the sportsman of ! the opportunity to hunt game as there would soon be an overflow and the animals would drift out of the re serve. The region of the Snowy Mountains being practically the only section in this part of the state where large game may be found, concerted action should be taken with (lie view of se curing the establisment of the pre serve. Altho no formal complaint oi f charge was made specifically setting forth wherein certain county officials con ducted their offices otherwise than strictly according to law, the hoard of county commissioners took time by the forelock this week and applied the white wash vigorously if not judi ciously. What the exoneration was based on, or of what particular charge •Mr. Dralle has been declared inno cent remains a deep mystery. If the matter involved a question of law the county attorney was never asked for an opinion thereon. No opportunity was given anybody to present testi mony or evidence to substantiate a charge if any was made. The whole matter savors too much of a "star chamber" proceeding, and gives one the impression that the board of conn- ! THE MAN WITH TEN DOLLARS and no debts is a capitalist. He is a potential Cap tain ol Industry. He is in position to control the labor oi four men for one day, the labor of one man ! lor several days; and in this way multiply his own individual efforts. So Ten Dollars isn't such a small thing after all. To be the owner of Ten Dollars with the op portunities it brings is well worth striving for. And it isn't so very hard to accumulate Ten Dollars, or £ioo, or even $1,000 with its larger opportunities, if you go about it the right way, the safe business' like way. ^ Ol can do it. Just start an account with us and add to it as you can. It will probably surprise you how quickly you can accumulate a "working balance"—an amount sufficient for a small invest ment. Try it.

That sister to the "Dick-to-Dick" let- ter, w'hich is part of the history of Musselshell county, should have made him a little more cautious. -o Washington, Jan. 9.—A battalion of infantry consisting of 500 men will be sent by the United States to China to help keep open railway communication between Peking and the sea. This force is all that is required in the opin ion of Minister Calhoun after consulta tion with thç other diplomatic officers in Peking. EXPERT ACCOUNTANT TESTIFIES Chicago, Jan. 11.—Henry Moyer, ex pert acountant in charge of figuring the cost of slaughtered animals for Armour & Co., resumed the witness stand today as the sixth witness for the government in the trial of the ten Chicago packers before District Judge Carpenter. Dist. Attorney Wilkerson continued his direct examination. Washington, Jan. 9.—The Democrat ic National convention will be held in Baltimore beginning Tuesday, June 25.

Bucharest, Romania, Jan. 11.—The Kusian steamer "Russ" foundered dur ing a terrific gale in the Black Sea last night anil was lost with all her passengers and crew, a total of 172 persons. The "Russ,"which was un der command of Capt. Horn off and be longed to the Russian Steam Naviga tion Company of the Black Sett and the Danube, was steaming from (la la tz to Odessa. Among her passeng ers were Carl Anuseff, who recently was appointed Russian Consul General at Galat/., and his family. DEMOCRATS HAVE CAUCUS Washington, /. C., Jan. ti—Demo crats of the house held file lirst caucus of the session late today to consider committee vancancies and abolition of tlie secret caucus. Last summer, when criticism cf the secret caucus was di rected against the party leaders in the .louse by Win. .1, Bryan and others, it wits proposed that the caucus in the future should he open to the press. A committee headed by leader Und r wood appointed to consider the mat ter recommended that a journal of the caucus be kept in which all definite ac tion is to be noted and made public. Del ates were not recorded and the caucus was to be executive in nature as heretofore. o is BIG NEW YORK BUILDING BURNS New York, Jan. 9.—The great nine story marble building of the Equitable Life Insurance Society at lzo Broad way, the home of the Mercantile Trust Company, the Equitable Trust Com pany, the banking house of Kohntz Bros the Mercantile Safe Deposit Co., and the Harinian lines, was destroyed early this morning by fire. Three watchmen lost their lives by leaping from the roof. . ire Chief William Mulsh was buried in the ruins and no doube is dead. The property loss is es timated ta about $10,000,000. Millions of dollars in cash and securities are locked in the vaults of the Assurance Society and the banking and trust companies, but are not believed to have been affected by the flames. Wm. Giblin, president of the Mercan tile Safe Deposit Company, was im prisoned with an employee in the vaults by the flames and was rescued only a'ter the firemen had sawed through several two-inch steel bars. A third man, name not known, lost his life in the vaults. 'i..e fire was in the heart of the fi nancial district and the flames were fought mainly from the tops of sky scrapers. Business was brought to a complete standstill in banking and rokerage houses whose employees could not reach the scene of their daily toil, i .nancial firms suspended busi ness to care for the firemen, many of whom foil exhaust ;d or overcome by ''cat or smoke. Most of the vital re cords of the Equitable Life Assurance Society were kept in the branch of fices of the Society in the building sev eral blocks from the main offices an* it is thought tin los - tnis respect will not be great. Oilier big financial orgnizations and the railroad compan ies were not so fortunate. The fire when discovered about six Vclock already had gained tremendous headway. Within two hours after the fire broke out, probably about 5:30 o dock, the building was a mass of flames and the firemen working form the tops of skyscrapers and from the streets below were trying to prevent the flames from spreading to the buildings of the opposite sides of tlie surrmindii ~ streets. POLICEMEN GUARD RUINS Half Billion Dollars in Securities Be lieved to Be Unharmed in Big New York Fire. sew York, Jan. 10. —Half a billion dollars or more in securities lie in the white ruins of the Equitable building guarded by 140 policemen and detec tives. The bulk of the securities owned by the great Gould, Harriman, Ryan and Belmont estates and the vast and securities of the Equitable Life Assurance Cociety are locked in the massive steel vaults that are now buried under hundreds of tons of de bris. It is beleived that the securit ies will be found unharmed when the vaults can be opened. Fire cheif Ken tno doubted this afternoon whethei the fire would be completely extin guished before nightfa'l.

C., Jan. 9—Alaska within five years "ill be in a fair way to support the population of 3,000,000 farmers and cattle ranchers that the department of agriculture says the country can support and the territory will have within its boundaries two or more large cities, oue smelting center about the size of Bute, Mont., and a coal mining settlement, about tlie size of Scranton Pa., if tlie most beneficial of tlie panaceas for Alaska ills are ad ministered as per tlie suggestions made in the report of secretary of the in terior, W. L. Fisher, and the bills re presented by Congresman Sulzer, of New York and other politicians. ENTRYMAN CAN LEAVE FAMILY MUST RESIDE Former Opinion Reversed — Home steader Can Commute if Family Lives on Claim. A decision growing out of a case n South Dakota reverses the old attitude of the General Land Office in regard to the requirements that must be com plied with by the homestead entry man In fore making final commutation proof. A description of the ease and the circumstances which prompted the change follows: !Vr vi urs has been understood bal the general land o.fice adhered to the practise of forcing a homesteader to personally reside on Ins claim, regard less of whether his fam iy aid o: no! Several rulings to mis e •ct have .ecu made and although sonic settlers ".ere willing ui take chances, the wise e cncv.ed regulations. ssistant Commis ira • . Y.! : -1 ■ Y.I : nd fit at Washington has just rendered a decision in the case o Chas. K. Zenor, that completely reverses the land of- fice's former stano. Zenor was a bar- ber at Boone I wa, and came to Pen- nington county where he filed on a homestead. Unable* to make a living on the homestead, he worked at his trade n Pierre and kept his wife and children on tue homestead .or the full i* months before he attempted to com- mute. The local lan office ruled against but commissioner Proud- fit in reviewing the case holds that this is an injustice to the homesteader. He declares that n reading through past decisions, he finds the words"per- sonal residence used as meaning the claimant uitnself, but that his own in- terpretation of this wo- 1 g ts that .t may mean simply the family of the homesteader if in good faith he has established his family on the claim and visits them when lie can. - ne new ruling will be of great ben- efit to homesteaders and is due to the efforts of Congressman Martin and Burke who have for months labored with the department and officials of the land office for a more equitable ruling in such land cases.
