DURING COMING YEAR If Billings Would Hold the Trade of Surrounding Country, Better Highways Leading to City from All Directions Should Be Constructed. "What is the greatest need of Billings In the year 1909?" queried Austin North in response to a question. "Paved streets and good roads. "If we expect to hold the trade of the surrounding country we must build good roads. If we expect our city to develop as rapidly as it should we must pave our streets. "Every merchant should be interested in seeing that better roads are builded in the country surrounding the Magic City, leading to Billings. Many farmers have to come 10 and 15 miles to Billings to trade and they do not come as often as they should because of the bad condition of the roads. Build good public roads and they will come ofteuor, they will buy more of their supplies here, because it will be an easy trip, and they will have the advantage of larger stocks and the opportunity to inspect them. We ought 'to make boulevards of our country roads, make them so it would be easy to haul produce to market. The need of better country roads is one of the greatest problems facing us today. "Paved streets are needed in the city. They are needed because of the saving they would make in the cost of caring for streets, because of the added value they give to property, because of the metropolitan air they would give the city and the advertising they would do, they are needed for a score of other reasons. They should be constructed the coming year. Paving can be procured in annual payments running over a space of ten years. If the paving is done now, the city will reach a population of 100,000 before the final payment has to be made. "Paved streets and good country roads are, to my mind, the most important need of the city of Billings in 1909." Lemp's beer on draught, at Reilly's.

Thomas Burke, commissioner of the Montana Coal Mine Operators association of Helena, and Thomas Gibson, president of the United Mine Workers for the districts of Montana and Wyoming, were in the city yesterday to adjust the last difficulty that exists between the coal operators and miners in the state. It was in regard to some minor matters at Coalville. When the contract for two years between the workers and the operators was signed it was agreed that some slight local differences at Roundup, Lewistown, Coalville and other places would be taken up and adjusted. Commissioner Burke and President Gibson have been devoting their time to this since the contract was signed with the result that one by one they have been adjusted. Conditions in the coal mines of the state are excellent, according to President Gibson. There is not a difference between the miners and the operators, save the slight one at Coalville, and the output of coal is steadily increasing.

WROTE MANY CHECKS Lee Moore, Father of Floyd Moore, Notifies Billings Men That He Will Make Good His Son's Bad Checks-Boy May Be Released. Ix;e Moore, a prominent cattleman of Douglass, Wyo., has written to par-tics in Billings who went good for checks which his son gave In this city to the amount of about $3x and also about $200 which the boy obtained at Sheridan, that he will make his son's shortages good. Moore was arrested in Billings some time ago and a charge of obtaining money under false pretenses was preferred against him at that time. The boy 'has since been in jail here. At the time of his arrest the young man stated that his father had never refused to make good any checks that he wrote, and he made an earnest appeal to his parents to reimburse the parties 'who had cashed the chocks for him. Something over a week has elapsed and the father has, from all appearances, relented and will square accounts for the boy. There is no wish on the part of those who aided the lad to get the money to prosecute him, as they have been friends of his father for some time, and it. is more than likely that if the checks are taken up that the prosecution will be dropped. 8IG HORN PEOPLE MARRIED IN BILLINGS NUPTIALS OF WELL KNOWN YOUNG PEOPLE SOLEMNIZED.

John Sheldon who has been a porter around the saloons of Billings for some time past, was arrested last night while trying to sell for 50 cents a suit case filled with good clothing. To Chief of Police Talgo, who arrested him, he claimed that the case belonged to him and that he had it in one of the saloons for the past several months. There is one new suit in the grip made by a firm of Chicago tailors and there are receipts in the pockets of one of the coats from a teamsters' union made out to Gabriel Ferguson, and also a receipt for road tax paid by George Torgenson. There is also a copy of the by-laws and constitution of the Western Federation of Miners in the case. There nave oeen a numoer oi suii. cases stolen in the city in the past few weeks and the police department! will try and locate the owner of this' one. I Chief Talgo says that it is certainly not the property of Sheldon, as he was never known to have as many clothes as those in the case. OUT THEY GO To The Great Judith Montana.
