THEORDINANCE WAS NOT PASSED.
Buttha Company fJldn't Want It, mmm^That They Can Make the Rait*^Anyhow.
Thrrlty council held the shortest MS^^^Ion In thi* history of the town last^nlsiil, Hint dlepoard of the street oar^fare bimlnoes with Um MMMM and dls-^patch af n guillotine The session lusted^Just two minute* hy the cluck which^tiana-a In th^ council chamber. Mnyor
WeedMUM a foiV nilllllle^ lute llllil culled
thacouncil to order ahortly after 8^o'clock with n rap of his gavel. City^Clerk Carpenter was on a delayed train^from Hutte and hta assistant. Harry^Un it, called the roll. All of the sfeJlT^men were preaent except Fuller, who
MajorWeed aald he presumed all of^them were aware that the meeting ^ aa^a special one to consider a proposition^submitted l^v the Helena Klectrlc Hull-^way company looking; to the advance^^ment of the ft Ice of fureu. Juat aa mmn^aa he finish'd tht^ arntence up popped^the Junior alderman from the Second^ward with a little report finm the judi^^ciary commtttiu. It wui read by Mr.^Brvtt and waa to the effect that the^propoaed ordinance to regulate the^street railway fores had been referred^to the committee and that afl^ r consid^^eration the committee recommended^that It not hi paased.
Withlike celerity another alderman^moved the adoption of the report, and^without u dissenting- voice the recom^^mendation of the Judiciary committee^a^^- j.t.-.l Immediately Alderman^Jacob I'oat moved that the council ad^^journ, which It did Instanler and before^the few spectators In the rear part of^the council chamber could grasp the^situation.
Itwas unanimous fiom start to finish^and the members of the council all^looked as If they had relieved them^^selves of a w eighty burden.
Therewas a caucus Just before the^meeting nnd while the aldermen were^waiting for Mayor Wtcd. An Inde^^pendent reporter was Invited to lake It^In, but when he approached the group^all he heard was a dlsctiattton upon the^relative merits of eye glasses.
Afew minutes utter the council ad^^journed a number of spectators climbed^the stairs tothe council chamber and^were surprsed to learn that It was all^over. They had evidently expected to^witness anentertaningand lengthy ses^^sion, and regretted that they had not^been on hand earlier.
Thereason the ordlnunce was not^pasaed. as explained by one of the alder^^men after the adjournment, waa he-^cause they had come to the conclusion^that there was no necessity for Ita en^^actment, and because the street railway^company hod their legal exports render^an opinion In the matter which was to^the effect that the company could raise^the fares without the adoption of the^ordinance which was so summarily dis^^posed of last night.
We'vebeen longer than we^affected in getting ready, but^ve'll try to make the lost time^ip to you by giving you
Wehave claimed and do claim^:o have the

TomMorris Made a Failure of Entering a^Saloon Through a Glass.
TomMorris, a laboring man. had a^high old time laat Wednesday night^which came to a sudden termination^early on Thanksgiving morning and^hail nil the appearance of putting an^end to his earthly career. Morris had^been taking in the town and as mid^^night approached his ^load^ got^greater. About this tlm^ he reached^the Atlantic beer hell where he ex^^changed some of his coin over the bar^for the liquid that Is supposed to ateal^one's brains away. His conduct was^not elegant and the barkeeper put him^out of the house twice. He went back^like the pitcher once too often and^tried to enter through one of the plate^glass panels lu the front door which It^will take $20 to replace. Morrla only^got his right fist ami arm through the^glass when a stream of blood hh thick^an a lead pencil spurted from an artery^In his wrist. Prompt surglcnl nsslst-^nnce saved him He Is now In the city^Jail with a badly swollen wrist but Is^all right otherwise.
