THE OEEICIAL PAPER OF DAWSON COUNTY Volume 10 -No. 14 GLENDIVE, MONTANA. THURSDAY, May 21. 1914 Eight Pages Glendive Defeats Beach In Opening Game Local Boys Show Up In Good Form—Thresher Pitches No-Run Game—Hagan and Hughes A Failure | Stirred by the melodious strains of music rendered by the Glendive City Band, under the able leadership of Director George Jones; encouraged by the large attendance, and the presence and co-operation of city and county officials; and assisted by the poor playing of the weakest team Beach pas ever sent to the Gate City, our local boys, in their new uniforms of red and white, fairly walked to vic tory Sunday afternoon at the ball park, winning by the score of 12 to 0 , over the Beach aggregation. "String" Thresher, the Glendive first sacker, surprised even his warm est admireers by pitching a master ful game, allowing but 5 hits, strik ing out (> hatters, and giving but 1 base on balls. Our boys showed up best at the hat, making 15 hits and but 2 errrrs as against 5 hits and nine errors of their opponents. Special mention must be made of the in-field line-up, which, to the old timers, looks to to be the fastest we have ever had in this city. After the fourth inning, Armantrout replaced Pire in the visitors pitching department, after Hanson, Stumpf and Mack each made a two-bagger off the delivery of the little "Chronicle" pitcher. Armantrout did not fare very much better. The band played a program of fif teen selections, each of which was generously applauded by the crowd. Two hundred and ninety people paid admission to the grounds, which at fifty cents a "throw" made $145 gate receipts, out of which Manager Healy The Monitor Automobile Contest THIS CONTEST Is not conducted by some Cheap Out-Of-Town Piano Factory.

One of the spectacular features of the game was "Ham" Hildensperger sliding to second, putting forth in the effort, a limb containing 32 boils of varying size and intensity. Mayor Hagan pitched the first three balls which Frank Hughes made j as many unsuccessful attempts to catch. Mr. Hughes was not taking any chances with the Mayor's de livery, and as a matter of additional body protection, had the chest pro tector fastened to his back. The reason is obvious. The umpires were O. T. Griffiths and James Powers. G. G. Hoole was official score-keeper. Thirty automobiles were lined up to the left of the grand staud, no cars being allowed on the east side.

To Be Finished Sept. 1st. The new plant of the Glendive Heat, Light & Power Co., upon which work was begun on May fourth, will be one of the best constructed electric power | plants in the state, and will contain sufficient machinery, of the latest de sign, to supply light and power to a city the size of Helena or Billings. The original appropriation of $75,000 for the completed structure will proo ably be exceeded by several thousand' for it is the intention of the manage ment to so thoroughly equip the plant that other than the replacing of boiler flues and the like, no addition al machinery will be needed for the next half century. The plant will be located at the in and Valentine St., occupying a space of 50 by 75 feet on a lot 125 by 170 feet, i In an interview which the Monitor man had with Mr. Frank C. Hughes, the manager of the electric company, it was learned that the plant will be in operation by September first, bar ring accidents. W. T. Perham, the contractor, is constructing the building, which will be of brick and reinforced concrete, at a cost of $15,000. Even the roof will be of concrete. Brubaker Bros., have the sub-contract for all the con crete work other than the 182-ft. smoke-consuming chimney, which is being built by a Chicago firm that does nothing else but concrete smoke stack construction. The plant will contain three im mense boilers of 300 horse power each operating the very latest type steam turbine engines. None of the old equipment will be used except a very small portion of the switchboard now in use. About fifteen men are now employed in the work of excavation, which num ber will soon be increased to nearly fifty men when the work gets fairly under way. The heating mains will also be extended so as to include the new City hall. a quarrel over claim LEADS TO KILLING Reported That Roy Jamieson Is Shot By Chauncey Gould. Assail ant Surrenders. Before going to press early Fri day morning, being delayed by the in stallation of the new Mergenthaler Linotype machine, we were informed by County Attorney Slattery's office of a message received from Fairview to the effect that at eight o'clock this morning, Chauncey Gould, aged 23, a rancher on section 14-26-54, shot with a revolver and mortally wounded a neighbor named Roy Jamieson, also a rancher, on section 15-26-54. The exact details of the affair are not known at the present writing ex cept that the quarrel that led up to the shooting, started over a claim in which both men appeared to be in terested. The killing took place near Mona postoffice, just west of Fairview. County Attorney Slattery and Under Sheriff Art Heliand left in the latter's automobile for the scene of the shoot ing, and will pick up a justice of the peace in Sidney, to conduct the post mortem proceedings. Chauncey Gould is the man who, together with one John Thompson, was charged with the larceny of a light bay gelding from Fred Nelson on November 3rd, 1913, but whose case was dismissed on January 29, 1914 by Judge Hurley in District Court on motion of County Attorney Slat tery on account of the other defend ant having left the country. LATER—Shortly after the above was written, Attorney S. E. Felt, whose offices are in the Dkm Block, received a telephone communication from At torney Carl L. Brattin, of Sidney, tell ing him that a mistake had been made in the identity of the victim. Mr. Brattin avers that the dead man is Alfred Oakes, a homesteader near Mona, and not Jamieson as was originally reported. Both Mr. Felt and Mr. Brattin were the attorneys for Mr. Oakes in an action that is now pending against the man whom it is now thought did the killing* and if is inferred that the-assault 4» the New Richland County Now A Certainty Sidney Gets County Seat By Large Vote—24 Fairview Men Vote For If—Billy Arkle Elected Sheriff With five precincts still missing at the time of going to press to-night, those of Arthur, Ridgelawn, Elmdale, Nickwall and Smith Creek, the re turns so far received in the election which was held Saturday to decide whether or not the new Richland county be formed, show an over whelming majority in favor of the creation of the new county and the selection of Sidney as the permanent county seat. According to all reports about 1400 votes in all were cast out of a total registration of 2700 which would be considered a fair average in an elec tion of this kind. The Board of County Commission ers will probably canvass the returns Saturday and then the exact totals will be announced and will appear in the next issue of the Monitor. outcome of bitter feeling between the men on account of the suit. Young Gould was put under a re straining order late in April in the justice court. Mr. Brattin further states that Gould surrendered himself to Deputy Sheriff Roy Heiner at Sidney. The Orpheum Theatre announces a big feature production for only one night, Monday* May 25th, called the "Exposure of the White Slave Traf fic." This is the same photo-play that has caused so much discussion pro and con, throughout the country. J. S. Mitchell, editor of the Fair view Times, was in the city today. According to the state law govern ing county division, the new commis sioners must meet within five days after the old commissioners notify all the candidates of their election. Governor Stewart then makes his proclamation announcing the new county and placing it in a judical dis trict. Richland County will probably be put in the 14th or 7th district, with chances in favor of the former. According to reports, which lack official confirmation , the following officers were elected: State senator, John P. Meadors of Riverview, (Rep.) State representative, W. S. South wick of Savage, (Prog.) Sheriff, George W. (Billy) Arkle of Savage, (Dem.) Clerk and Recorder, Edmund Bron son of Fox Lake, (Rep.) Treasurer, M. J. Rooney of Crane, (Rep.) Court Clerk, Guy L.
