Crased With Drink Purchased With
His Wife's Money He Gets Up in
the Night and Commits Sad
and Wicked Deed.
(Special to Inter Mountain.)
Kalispell, Jan. 2.-Patrick Sullivan, an
old miner, whose wife was running the
section house at Jennings, visited home
about four weeks ago and was so ugly
and abusive with his family that all
were In mortal dread of his anger, he
having been drinking.
He was arrested and was given the al
ternative of going to jail or leaving
He left and went to Spokane, where
he wrote to his wife that he was sici
and in a hospital and in need of money.
She sent him some, but afterwards
received a letter wanting more.
An investigation followed, proving that
he was not sick, but drinking with the
money furnished by his wife. After the
refusal of more money he returned
shortly to Jennings and last night he
went to bed.
Mrs. Sullivan, who was very deaf, shut
and locked her door.
About 2 o'clock he got up, dressed,
took an axe and pried open the eoor of
her room and hit her in the face with
the axe, cutting a great gash before she
could give an outcry for help.
He then shot her in the head and In
the breast. He then shot his 6-year-old
grand-child in the arm and hunted for
the two other children, who had taken
refuge in a room upstairs. They, hear
ing him, were afraid to call for help.
Not finding the children he went up
stairs to another room and shot himself
in the head and through the heart. Ii'
died instantly, but his wife lingered
some time, but died during the da.y

The child was brought to Kalispe'i

L[N1THEN THi TIRM
NINE MONTHS' SCHOOL YEAR CON.
SIDERED TOO SHORT.
VACATIONS ARE TOO LONG.
State Superintendent Welch Believes
That a Three Months' Rest in the
Summer Too Seriously .nter
feres With School Work.
.(Special to Inter Mountain.)
Helena, Jan. 2.-It is believed by many
of the more prominent educators of the
state that a longer school term should
be held in Montana. It is contended
that nine months school is not h ng
enough and that the three months va- a
tion too seriously breaks into the school
State Superintendent W. W. Welch is
in favor of a longer term for the Mon
tana schools, particularly the city
schools. Of necessity many country dis
trlcts hold but eight and even six
months school and in some outlying dis
tricts the public school is maintained
for a much shorter time. In the cities,
however, the term should be lengthened.
"One of the principal arguments ,in
favor of a longer school year," said
'Mr. Welch, discussing the matter to
day, "is the fact that our Montana sum
mers are not excessively hot, and it
would work no hardship upon the chil
dren to require them to attend school
another month during the summer, mak
ing in all a ten-months' school year.
"The standard of our schools would be
materially improved." continued the
state superintendent, "and generally
speaking better results would be ob
Vacation Too Long.
"I hear frequent complaint that teach
ers find it difficult to accomplish any
thing during the first four weeks of
school in the fall, as it requires about
that length of time to tame Young
America and get the youthful mind into
a receptive state.
"A two-months' vacation is more de
sirable, as it does not break up the
school year as much as three months.
"Parents, too, I believe would welcome
a lengthenlng of the school year. Dur
ing the summer it is a serious question
what to do with the boys or girls, as
they are like fish out of water when
"Of course this is true more particu
larly of the smaller children in the
grades. But even for the high schools I
believe a longer term would be more
effective and produce better results.
Many Leave School Early.
"Statistics show that more than 90
cent of the children never enter hi
school, and a large percentage nev
finish the graded schools. For th
reason I believe it is important that tli
best and most thorough instruction
lible be given the boys and girls whil-.
they are in school.
"Tn many of the Eastern states where
the summers are excessively hot school
term is 10 months or at least nine and
a half months."
Many school districts in Montana
have in the past scarcely been able to
malntain school for the length of time
required to enable them to draw appor
Since the passage of the law by the
last legislature permitting districts to
make a special levy for school purposes
there has been less hardship in this re
spect than heretofore.
If nine months school Is maintained in
the country districts that is all, in fact
more than is requred or expected, but in
the cities many of the prominent school
men of the state believe the term should
be lengthened from nine to ten months.
In his forthcoming annual report to
the governor Superintendent W. W.
Welch will bring the matter to the chief
executive's attention and ask t.at the
subject be given legislative considera

VIEWS ON MERGER
POSSIBLE RESULTS OF GOVER
NOR'S MEETINtr DISCUSSED.
MEETING WAS HARMONIOUS
Strong Opposition to the Northern
Securities Company May Strengthen
Bringing Suit at Once.
(Spzlal to Inter Mountain.)
Helena, Jan. 2.-There Is no little spec
ulation among oflllials at the capital as
to the effect that the recent meeting of
governors will have in shaping future
events as they have to do with the
Northern Securities company.
Gov. S. R. Van Sant of Minnesota re
turned to the North Star state wreathed
in smiles. He cari!ed almost every point
and things were practically his way
from the start.
During the first day of the conference
the expressions received from the other
governors and their attorney ge.nerals
Indorsed the opposition, and after the
early hours of the conference had passed
it was merely a question of Imeans to at
tain the desired end.
Moral Effect Great
There are those among prominent of
ficials and attorneys who believe the
governors' meeting will have a large
moral effect all over the West and that
the legal proceedings to be Instituted by
Minesota will result in the dissolution
of the Northern Securitles company.
On the other hand there are those who
believe that the governor's actio nwill
come to naught an dthat the resort to
the courts will avail nothing.
In the meantime the Northern Securl
ties company will strengthen its organ
A prominent Helena man who deals
largely in stocks on the New York
stock exchange and is familiar with
every move made by President Hill to
wards the organization of the rallroad
merger states that the opposition that
has been started by Governor Van Sant
has really alarmed the projectors of the
Northern Securities company and given
President James J. H111ll a few sleepless
The opposition has only served, it is
averred, to strengthen the trust, and all
interests represented In the Northern Se
curities company are rallying to the sup
port of the organization. The Helena
man further stated that his belief was
that the new corporation would fall of
its own weight if it had not been for the
persistent opposition. As it is the sev
eral interests represented, that under
other conditions might not get along har
moniously, are now rallying to the sup
port of the company, and are fortifying
their position with every available
The conference asked congress to in
vestigate the trust and to authorize the
Interstate Commerce commission to lix
a maximum rate. It is doubtful, how
ever, if the matter is brought up on the
floor of either branch of the national
law making body. Those who are not
opposed to the merger will argue that
congress can have no business looking
into the matter, especially when the le
gality of the trust is to be adjudlcatel
by the highest courts of the country. It
the present anti-trust laws prove inade
quate it would then be time for con
gress to address itself to a consideration
of a more effective law.
Governor Hunt Was 2~ealous.
The resolution offered by Governor
Hunt of Idaho was pigeon-holed almost
as soon as it had been introduced. It
elared in favor of the government
o'wnership of railroads. Being referred
,to the committee on resolutions it was
never reported back.
While neither Governor Van Sant or
ittorney General Douglas would not
.AIlose the character of the proceedings
instituted in Minnesota, both were
vil nrg to state that proceedings would

Loyal Enthusiasts Swarm After the

Contains the Likeness of the
(Iy A o. ,loate d P'res..)
London, Jan. 2. -There was an enthusi
astic demliand and a ready supply but
King Edlward coins were missing. Many
leolle got up eurly and went consid
erably out of their way to make pur
ihla'es of the pretty new penny anld half
penny stamps. Quite ai number of ardent
philatists wallted until midnight on Tues
day at the general Ipotafflc'' and began
asking for the new stamps, which were
on sale immediately after 12 o'clock
struck for New Year's day.
In the majority of cases the stamps.
were promlptly affixed to letters and post
cards, which were forthwith posted at
the nearest available letter box.
In many London branch po.toflices
the scene early In the morning was a
busy one and quite unusual. Small,
ragged urchins went up to the counters
and asked for the new stamps. Well
dressed young men called for a shilling's
worth of penny stamps, but refused to
complete the transaction when old ones
were offered. Everybody demanded the
new edition, and frequently the supplies
There is no doubt whatever from the
gossip heard at the postofifcee that the
public Is highly pleased wlth the new
King Edward stamps, especially the
lenny red ones.
For some time past millions of stamps
have been stored away In storerooms at
Somerset house, and over them the
closest supervision has been exercised
by officers of the inland revenue comm.s
Charged With Sand Bagging.

sandbagged James Campbell New Year's
eve. Cowan entered a plea of not guilty
in Judge Kennedy's court this morning,
and his hearing was set for Saturday
morning. Campbell, the viotlm, was
badly Injured, but refused to stay in the
hospital more than one night, and in
also exceedingly loath to say anything

Stringing a New Wire.

Anaconda, Jan. 2.-Fifteen linemen in

graph company have arrived in this city,
after having walked all the way from St.
Paul and strunri a new copper wire from
that city to Anaconda. The new circuit
will be complete until the wire has been
run to Stuart. That will be done in a
few days, and the gang will then go IDast,
The start from St. Paul was ma early

GOOD NEWS TO BUTTE MINERS
Miles Closed When Repairs on Smelter
Began Will Probably Start Up at
A resumption of operations on the
properties of the lioston & Montana,
which have been partlally closed down
for several weeks, is among the possibili
ties of the Immediate future.
The news came to Butte In a round
about way from Great Falls this morn
ing. It was partially confirmed by
(jharles W. Goodale, superintendent of
the Boston & Montana, In an interview
with the Inter Mountain this afternoon.
Mt. 'Goodale made no reference to the
operations In the mines here. What he
said had to do with the company's
smelting plant at Great Falls only.
"If the repairs on the plant, which
have been in progress for some time,
and the weather permit, we will be
ready to start up about January 15,"
said Mr. Goodale.
"It has been announced In Great Falls
that when we resunw we will employ
more men than ever before," continued
Mr. Goodale. "This Is an error. We
will not need as many men as we em
ployed when the smelter was closed
down. Later we will increase the force
to the normal number."
While Mr. Goodale made no direct ref
erence to the resumpntio of work on the
mines here, it may be inferred that the
re-opening of the Great Falls smelter
will necessitate an additional output of
ore, and that In some of the mines which
have been temporarily closed down
work will be resumed within a few
