best at the hat, making 15 hits and
but 2 errrrs as against 5 hits and
nine errors of their opponents.

have ever had in this city.

The new plant of the Glendive Heat,

of the best constructed electric power

LEADS TO KILLING
Reported That Roy Jamieson Is Shot
By Chauncey Gould. Assail
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
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

peace in Sidney, to conduct the post
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

those of Arthur, Ridgelawn, Elmdale,
Nickwall and Smith Creek, the re

sioners must meet within five days
after the old commissioners notify
all the candidates of their election.
Governor Stewart then makes his
