Several laywers talked against
this mnotio andit it was finally dis
covered that atl effort was being
made to talk the "radicals" out of
the hall so the alleged trench dodgers
would have a. majority. At one
time, after two hours of lawyer op
position, it. was feared that the al
leged trench dodgers would succeed
in their designs as several of the
"radicals" started to leave the meet
ing. Th'ley were called back by others
vwho hadl realized what the lawyers,
etc., Avere uti to and finally the thing

It was announiiced that the vote
stood 69 to "!9 itn favor of dlemocracy.
The' vote was then clhallengetl by one
soldier who rose and said that his
naltme had not been called when the
vote was' being taken by roll call. It
then developed that 10 others had
not been allowed to vote. '1'11(' entire
11 then voted "yes." The vote count

Open Their Tournament

than 100 marksmen from 12 states
have entered for the fifteenth annual
midwinter tournament given under
Ithe auspices of the American Trap
shooting association, which opened
here this morning.
Reiterates He Will Take
What Steps He Can to
Reduce Working Force of
Mayor W. H. Maloney reiterated
last night his previous statement that
he will today, for reasons of ecenomny,
dispense, for the time being at least
with all memIlbers of the various city
departments o\ver which he and the
city council have jurisdiction save for
the heads of departments. Hle says
that the city council by its action
through resolution at a.i meeting a
week ago Saturday had voted him the
right to take such steps as he deemed
advisable and that he intended to
curtail the city employ(,s until such a
time as it. would be possible for them
to receive pay for their services.
Determination of the city adininis
tration to mtake Butte at city without
policemen, firemen or departminental
employes, caused astonishment last
night to all who heard of the action,
in \ iew of the fact that business men
anil bantikers are cashillng salary war
rants of tirel'en and as the firemen
apparently are satisfietd with their
pay, are getting it, and do not wish
to leave their posts, it is deemed
?tranige that they should be thrown
out of their stations.
"I have nothing to add to my state.
ment of Saturday," said the nlayor
last night, "and simply repeat that
after noon today I intend to act in
accordance with the resolution adopt
ed by the city council in relation to
laying off certain city employes.
Nothing has occured to change my in
tentionl and the various departments
ha\(e been notified to this extent, or
rather, I have given instructions that
they be so notified."

THE MEDICAl, T'IIST.
The Advertising club in "resolut
ing" against the excessive advance ii
rates played true to form, as the
medical rates are about all they car
attack under their rules and regula
tions. Now the Rotary club couol
not, for their organization is sup
posed to boost the business of thIei
respective membership and not tha
of the consumer or commlunity. Thi
Advertising club cannot attack th:
price of pork chops or milk for the
baby, for the distributors of thes:
products belong to the Advertisin
club. It is against the ethics of th(
medical profession to advertise
hence the action of the club in de
manding a return of the medical
trust to their old standard of prices
Did you not smile, dear reader, wher
you read that the president of the
chamber of commerce. Mr. A. R
Currie. of fruit and produce fame,
appeared with John McIntosh in sub
nitting the proposition to the medi
cal trust, stating as their object that
labor was becoming unbalneced be
cause of uncalled for charges for
I claim that the medical trust are
the fairest and most honest profiteers
we have had, and now that they have
returned to normal rates again, they
cannot be considered in the profi
teering class, unless it is such sur
geons as chlarge far more for their
services than the cost of a trip to
Rochester plus charges at that end.
This combination at least waited un
til after the war before increasing
their prices and came out in a
straightforward and above board
manner and stated that they had de
cided to raise their rates only 100
percent. which, while it was consid
ered abnormal, was a fair average
increase when conipared with profi
teering profits asked by other inter
ests dealing in the necessities of life.
These other interests camouflaged
themselves at patrioteers, lead pro
cessions, made patriotic addresses,
decided who was patriotic and who
not, and daily, through the press of
the city and through the food board
and other agencies, told the public
that the cost of living had not ad
vanced, and now that they have had
their patriotic leg knocked oiut from
under them are resorting to other
methods of deception to prove that
profits are normal.
The chairman of the H. C. L. in
vestigation in the legislature has
stated several times in the press that
profiteering was and is rampant in
this state, and we know all organiza
tions have had their origin and head
luarters in Butte. A member of the
board visiting here last Sunday
stated through the press of this city
that he could not understand where
the big interests bought all their
high powered cars when they claimed
that they were doing business with
out profit, in fact. went behind in
their business in 1918, due to the
fact that they felt it their duty to
work for public welfare. A report
passed through the press that an
other member of the board thought
Butte suffered less from high prices
than any other point in the state. As
this statement was almost identically
the same in the Post, Standard and
Miner, I have doubts as to its cor
re(tness. It looks to me like the
copy that u:seid to be handed the pa
pers by the press representative so
active during the life of the food ad
minittration. Anyway, at the Ad
vertising club luncheon recently
some guests, not melnbers, arose to
their feet and told the members that
before they denounced Ithe Illulletin
and other interests that had shown
utp the rieal conditions that they
wished to denmand that the profiteers
be mentioned as beillg to blane for
unrest in this commulnlllity.
The Adl\rtising club in their
printed in\'iation to the lunc-heoif
mentioned took occasion to lambast
the Bulletin and the new life re
cently injected into the Silver Bow
Trades and Iabor assembly. Being
closely associated with the Advertis
ing club and other business iein's or
g lnizations. I can truthfully say that
t is the efforis put forth by these two
giellncirs h~it has caused the Adver
tising club t,, wake up and take no
tice that Iht, laboring people of this
onllni!lll'. tdo not intend to lie inm
nosed upilon indefinitely and that even
,uniter a i.lh wage scale they came
out of this \\ar with an empty pocket,
due to the profiteering prices then
and now in effect. Never in the his
tory of Rotary club, Ad club or
chamber of 'ottlmerce were such do
ings pulled off as classing Lutey and
Currie as among the undesirables
and the promoters of unrest in this
comnlunity. W-'e are going to have a
regular get-together feeling in this
community if labor will only voice
its comptlaints loudly enough, and
also hurry up abolut it or our sunlmmer
savings will atll be- gone.

Secretary of War Baker has been wired by the SPldiers',
Sailors' and Workers' council asking, in effect, whetheir United
States troops have been authorized to enforce the mandates
of Wall street junkers, who control Butte and its industries.
Two gigantic mass meetings of striking miners and citize~ns
who believe in democracy were held last night. One at the
I. W. W. hall on North Wyoming street and one at tihe Metal
Mine Workers' union hall at Idaho and Galena streets.
Probably 7,000 people wished to attend, but many got only
as far as the doors to the halls. Each hall holds soiuethinig
more than 1,000 people. These are the only halls obtainable
on account of the rule of the A. C. M., and the "Black Flag,"
both of which oppose free speech, a free press and derhocracy.
The meetings were orderly and the grim determination to':
oppose the millionaire corporation's efforts to take from the
workers a decent living was apparent in every face.
None of the many forceful speakers were radical. They
merely recited the facts; and every truth of how the industrial
pirates were endeavoring to rule Butte like the kaiser once
ruled Germany was unanimously condemned.
The blacksmiths met at 4 o'clock yesterday and elected
seven delegates to the Soldiers', Sailors and Workers' council,
and ordered all men to stay off the job where wages were cut.
The electrical workers met at 2 o'clock yesterday, increased
their delegates to the Soldiers', Sailors' and Workers council
from three to five, and instructed all meni to stay off all jobs
