Becker Trial Wednesday
New York, May 4.—For the second
trial of Chas. Becker, former police
lieutenant on a charge of having in
stigated the murder of Herman Rosen
thal which will begin on Wednesday,
District Attorney Whitman will call
70 witnesses. Many new faces, it is
said will be seen in the witness chair.
As at the first trial, the state's case
will be made around the story of Jack
Rose, which will be corroborated by
"Bridgie" Webber and Harry Vallon.
Livery Ban Changes Hands
A business change which was ter
minated last Monday was the sale of
the O'Neil Livery Barn, Ed O'Neil
selling the same to F. B. Whetham,
the drayman. It is the intentions of
Mr. Whetham to conduct only a feed
stable in the future, having had
a good deal of experience along
this line, and there is no doubt but
his patrons will find in him a very
capable and competent person, and
that his venture will prove a success
is almost certain.
Mr. O'Neil, who has put in a num
ber of years in the barn and who has
built up a substantial business, stated
no definite plans for the future but
hi9 time will undoubtedly be taken up
by other interests which will keep him
in the community.
New Owner For Pool Hail
Last Saturday R. E. Brown's pool
hall opened under new ownership, Mr.
Brown selling same to T. F. Moore,
of Billings. Located in the Dion
Block, and doing a flourishing busi
ness, it is one of the nicest and most
up-to-date houses of its kind in this
part of Montana. Mr. Moore is not a
new hand at the business and will
undoubtedly continue the business in
a very creditable manner.
Mr. Brown expects to leave in a
short time for his ranch south of Bil
lings, where he has a bunch of stock.
During his business career here he has
made may friends who are sorry to
see him leave but who wish him much
success in his new home.
Mr. and Mrs. H. N. Dion are the
proud parents of a bouncing baby boy
which was presented to them by the
stork Wednesday morning. Harry is
looking well and is all smiles these
Surveyor General For Montana
Helena, Montana, May 5.—Closely
following the announcement that he
had purchased the Livingston Enter
prise and Livingston Post for a cor
poration of Montana progressives, of
which he is president, Jerome G.
Locke, United States surveyor general
of Montana, yesterday announced that
he had tendered his resignation from
the federal office in order that he
might devote his entire time to the
management of the Livingston paper.
Mr. Locke assumed the office of sur
veyor general for Montana on July 1,
J911, and during the time that he has
been in office he has given satisfac
tion in all parts of the state. His
term of office, ordinarily, would not
expire until July 1, 1915. Mr. Locke,
however, hopes to be able to turn the
office over to his successor by July 1,
of this year.
Mr. Locke gives no other reason for
his resignation than that he will need
all his time in the future to attend to
his new achievement.
This is the first known record of
where a federal office holder in Mon
tana voluntarily resigned from office.

Up Day Is
City Dirt Not Combed Out As Well
As Aiiticipsted .—Chamber Of
Commerce Still On Job
Last Mdnday was "Clean-up Day''
under the auspices of the Chamber of
Commerce. Clean-up was not as
thoroughly undergone as it had been
hoped for from the reports of the
Public Improvement Committee on
their inspection tour of the city
Monday evening. They found many
places where the clean-up had been
neglected, on the north side as well as
on the south
'Hie Chamber of Commerce had ask
ed all to co-operate with them in
helping to make Glendive a cleaner and
more beautiful city. But instead
of all diggfng in and doing their share
they found a large number leaving
their back door as dirty as the snow
had left it. It is not only for the good
of the neighbor they are asked to
co-operate with them as it is for their
rn, both in cleanness and health,
as dirt breeds flies and flies carry
Tuesday morning the following
letter was sent to those who had neg
lected to do their share in the clean
Glendive, Montana, May 5, 1914.
The Glendive Chamber of Com
merce has inaugarated a "clean-up
campaign in this city. They expect
to stay on the job until it is finished.
Our Public Improvements Committee
after making a tour of inspection find
that you have not yet complied with
the city ordinance providing for clean
ing up of rubbish, cans, weeds and
etc., in yards and alleys. You are
herewith most urgently asked to co
operate with our committee and take
care of this matter within the next
day or two. Help us to make Glen
dive a City Beautiful.''
Glendive Chamber of Commerce.
The recipients of the above and all
other had better take warning as this
work has to be done and if not will
fully, force will probably be the next
step, which may prove quiet costly.
It is at least hoped these steps will
not be necessary.
In the parts of the city where the
cleanup ordinance was up held
good work was done, not only along
the line of doing away with the rub
bish but in the repairing of the side
walks as well.
The Executive committee of the
Chamber of Commerce met in special
session Tuesday evening and adopted
a resolution, which appears elsewhere
in these columns, and sent same to
the city council requesting thèm to
call a special election in regard to
granting a gase franchise to Messrs
Williams and R. B. Morrison.
The committee on entertainments
named Tuesday, May 12 for the next
noon-day luncheon to be held at tbe
Jordan Hotel. Thereafter a semi
monthly luncheon will take place.
