A JOLLY PARTY OF
STARTS ON HIS TRIP
(Continued "from Fags 1)
A SUNDAY EXCURSION THAT WAS
ENJOYED BY ALL PARTICIPATING
A FISH SUPPER WAS THE
A jolly party of five left the city at
I ctlock Sunday morning, on a tonieod
fishing excursion. The party was com
posed of Earle Seibert, Manley Thomp
son, Oliver McXairy, Elton De Force and
a man brought along to cut bait. The
gasoline boat "Little Ruby" was char
tered and promptly at the hour above
mentioned the lines were cast loose, and
the trip commenced. De Force was
chosen aa captain, engineer and fireman
rhile the balance of the party were
passengers except the bait cutter, who
In about twenty minutes after leav
ing, the destination of the party was
jeached, and, tying the boat to the red
par buoy opposite Young's Bay, the ex
termination of the tonieod species com
snenced. Eafle Seibert in his anxiety
forgot to bait his hooks, yet, strange to
ay, caught the first fish. This tickled
she bait cutter, who thought what a
map he had, but he was soon brought
to nis senses by being ordered to "get
a move on." Thompson took up his
position at the bow, the balance at the
tern, end then the good natured rivalry
kegan. Every time McNairy would catch
ft fish a deep baritone voice would sing
"Ter-um-dum-dum, tee-tum, etc., which
would continue until the fish was land
ad. Occasionally; the final words of the
teantiful song would be "oh pshaw, a
iuUhead." "Mc" was doing well but
Tompson was also doing something. He
was having "bullhead luck," for all he
could catch was bullheads, sometimes
two at a time. A vote was taken and
it was decided to take his line away from
lira but wiser counsel prevailed and he
was allowed to continue as bait was
jetting i-hort and his catch could be
wsed for that purpose. Seibert wasn't
saying much, but he was catching fish
and lots of them. Some were bullheads
and he was about to be given the pun-
Khment intended for Thompson when,
ts if to save him, he landed a tomcod.
De Force was fishing too, and caught
some. In his quiet way he was landing
fish and laughing at the efforts of the
poor bait cutter to keep up with the
procession. About the time the bait
eutter was exhausted the fish stopped
lilting. There were as good fish in the

trol; for there must be control some
where. "One way of exercising such control
is through fhe laws of the land. Ours
is a government of liberty, but it is a
government of that orderly liberty
which comes by and through the honest
enforcement of and obedience to the
law. At intervals during the last few
months the appeal has been made to me
not to enforce the law against certain
wrongdoers of great wealth because to
do so would interfere with the business
prosperity of the country. Under the
effects of that kind of fright which when
sufficiently acute we call panic, this ap
peal ha9 been made to me even by men
who ordinarily behave as decent citi
zens. One newspaper which has itself
strongly advanced this view gave prom
inence to the statement of a certain
man of great wealth to the effect that
he so-called financial weakness 'was due
entirely to the admitted intention of
President Roosevelt to punish the large
moneyed interests which had trans
gressed the laws.' I do not admit that
tins has been tne main cause of any
business troubles we have had; but it
is possible that it has been a contribu
tory cause. If so, friends, as far as I)
am concerned it must be accepted as a
disagreeable but unavoidable feature in
a course of policy which, as long as I
am President will not be changed. In
any great movement for righteousness,
where the forces of evil are strongly
intrenched, it is unfortunately inevit
able that some unoffending people
should suffer in company with the real
offenders. This is not our fault. It is
the fault of those to whose deceptive
action these innocent people owe their
false position, A year or two ago cer
tain representatives of labor called
upon me and in the course of a very
pleasant conversation told me that they
regarded me as 'the friend of labor. I
answered that I certainly was, and that
I would do everything in my power for
the laboring man except anything that
was wrong, i nave tne same answer 10
make to the business man I will do
everything I can do to help business
conditions, except anything that is

HERDER'S GHASTLY DEED
FISHERMEN'S STRIKE SETTLED.
Men Win After Four Weeks Fight
Receive Substantial Advance.
ABERDEEN, Oct. 1. After four
weeks of consistent but determined de
mand on the part of the local fisher
men's union for more proportionate
wages for its members, the men won out
in their fight, today when the Parks
Fish Company signed a contract with
the union which means the return to
work of the men on Monday night.
In the settlement of the strike, while
fcoth sides made concessions, the union
lias gained considerable. In fact, it is
stated by members of the union that
under the increase, even while conceding
to a degree, they will receive more mon
ey than they could have obtained under
the old schedule.
The schedule agreed upon, as covered
in the contract between the Parks Fish
company and the union, provides for
the payment of 1 cents per pound for
ed-meated black salmon, an advance
f about 121 per cent over ordinarv
cannery prices, and 20 centsipiece for
eilversides, an advance of 5 cents over
the price of last year.
Thirteen is not always an unlucky
umber; we once knew it to replace the
usual six in a percentage dividend an

COPPER DEADLOCK BREAKING.
A. Norden & Co. Purchase Four Million
Pounds for Export to China.
NEW YORK, Oct.l. The firm of A.
Norden & Co. yesterday made apur-
chase of more than 4,000,000 pounds of
copper for export to China. The copper
was of the highest grade, being about
99.9 pure. YVhile no price was stated,
it is thought to be close to 15 cents,
The metal is to be delivered at the
rate of at least 300 tons a month, and
the whole amount must be delivered
before April, 1908.
The purchase, which is one of the
largest made in the market this year,
is accepted as meaning that the dead
lock between the consumers and pro
ducers is close to an edn.
Members of the firm last night re
fused to discuss the deal further than
to confirm the fact of the put chase. It
could not be learned from whom the
metal was secured.
Remains Hanging for Months From
Tree Overhanging Valley Two Thous
and Feet Deep Lonely Suicide Dis
covered in Strange Skeleton.
LIVINGSTON, Oct. 1. From the first
of July to the latter part of last week
the bodyi of a man has been dangling
from a tree on the side of the Crazy
mountains, 0 miles north of Livingston,
at a height of 2.000 feet above'the sur-
ounding foothills, in one of the most
picturesque points in that splendid
sweep of scenery.
The grewsome spectacle was discov
ered by two ranch boys who were hunt
ing. The boys were tracking deer and
were clambering over the steep side of
the mountain through thick timber when
the object caught their attention. They
thought at first that it was a deer,
and when hey discovered that it was a
man's body they; did not want to in
vestigate but left for home in great
Coroner I.eard was notified of the dis
covery and went at once to Lat.
He was unable to secure a jury to go
that distance Into the mountains, and
the body was so decomposed it could
not be removed without the services of
an undertaker, and the nearest was 50
miles away. The coroner concluded an
inquest was not necessary, as the ease
was plainly one of suicide. The man's
bodv was reduced to skin and bouse.

worms and flies. A vault was built in
the side of the mountains and the re
mains placed there temporarily.
The name of the Miieide is not known
to the coroner, but he was well known
in Sweet Grass county, where he work
ed herding sheep for the past four years
for T. J Lovold. The only memoran
dum found :n his effects was the en
try of Mr. Lovold's name in some loose
sheet of a pocket memorandum.

except a saddle horse, it is supposed
that he was hunting for this horse
when he lost his mind and committed
suicide. He had a rope with him, and,
with this rope fastened about his neck,
he walked up the steep incline of a fal
len tree to where he could fasten the
rope and step off into space.
Evidently he took off his coat and
folded it carefully leaving it at the base
of the tree. He placed his hat on top
of the coat, and these articles were
found undisturbed. He left no word of
any kind. He is said to have a wife
and family in Norway, and to have
been a man of unusual attainments and

THINGS MADE OF PAPER.
Germans Manufacture Almost Every
thing From Wood Pulp.
Paper rugs, table cloths, wearing ap
parel, towels, sacks and other article
not usually associated with a paper fae-
nry are the latest products to wear
the "Made in Germany" mark, since
textile factories in Germany have been
experimenting with wood pulp paper in
the effort to be released from depend
ence on foreign cotton and jute.
Yarn is now !eing spun from paper
and woven into these commodities, but
the German manufacturer say that it
make "fabrics" that would deceive the
eye and that will look as wen and
wear a well as the same material made
out of the sort of yarn that our ancient
grandmothers used to spin.
Counsul T. H. Norton, of Chemnitz,
where one of the biggest "paper yarn"
plants in Germany is located, has pent
samples of the products to the bureau
The coarsest is a sacking material

Heavier materials of this sort are said
to render good service for rugs.
The lighter stuffs are apparently too
stiff to lend themselves easily for use
as wearing apparel. A light blue stuff
with a lutrous surface is, however, not
far removed in point of pliability and
suppleness from certain grades of Amer
ican cotton fabrics which find a ready
market among the Chinese. A closely
woven stuff npon which designs have
been printed, could lie used very effect
ively for wall covering.
