The following statement was
given to the Associated Press

Chicago by Col. E. J. Crull of
"They must nominate Taft on
the first ballot or look out,"
commented Col.' E. J. Crull of
Roundup, a Montana alternate,
who is busy about the Congress
hotel as one of the Taft men.
"If the president isn't nomi
nated it is hard to tell what
will happen. There may be
bloodshed before we get
through. I have never seen a
feeling so bitter among men as
it is here, and it is growing
worse every hour."

A. J. DuFrene, deputy state veteri
narian, of Billings, Montana, caused
to be published in this issue of The
Record an official notice regarding
cattle dipping in Musselshell county
and giving the different locations of
dipping pens throughout the country
in this part of the state in which cat
tle are effected by scab.
In Musselshell, A'ellowstone, Sweet
Grass and Northern Rosebud counties,
in order to eradicate the dread disease
of cattle scab, the live stock sanitary
board of this state is doing everything
within its power to help the cattle
men attain this end. It is requested
that all the cattle within the above
mentioned counties be dipped before
July 1, and in case this request is not
complied with the state will take the
necessary steps in seeing that the
cattle are dipped.
It is very important that cattlemen
in these counties immediately dip their
cattle and do everything possible to
rid the effected cattle of the scab, for
unless this disease is positively eradi
cated by the first of January, 1913, a
federal quarantine will be placed on
these counties, which lasts for two
years In ease of a federal quarantine
the stock business in these counties
will practically come to a standstill,
as it will be impossible to ship any
cattle to the eastern markets during
the time of the quarantine.
The work in this locality is under
A. J. DuFrene, deputy veterinarian of
Billings. He will be glad to give the
cattlemen any assistance possible.
REFUND OF TAX UP TO COUNTY.
Says Musselshell Commissioners Must
Correct Assessor's Error.
If excessive taxes are collected
through error of the county official
having it in charge, are paid under
" , I
protest and even though the person
. , . ,, . . f „ in
na- hie them fails to bring suit f or ,
ihe recovery of the amount, it is the j
duty of the county commissioners to i
refund tire money if he files a claim
tor it. This is the opinion of tlie at
torney general rendered to County
.Attorney Desmond J. O'Neil regarding
, case now pending here.
The tax in question was paid to the

"that the legislature refuses to

refusal in the pa t i. not sufficient to
warrant refusal on the part of the
ommissioners to refund the amount.
' The question before the county is
