HELENA, Mont, April 28.— Proceedings were begun in the supreme court on behalf of the attorney gen- .oral to compel the Great Northern to operate its lines within Montana.

The attorney gcuoral asks the court for an order upon the company, commanding it to appear and show cause why a writ should not be issued compelling the company to operate its road as it wus operated previous to April 18. These proceeding will be followed by an application to havo the charter of the road within the state forfeited. _ • Sulcldoi In Nlagar»'< Bapldt. NIAGARA FALLS.
