The following piece of appropriate
rhyme from a striking shoveller will
afford our toiling friends the oppor
tunity for seeing that there is some
thing besides brawn distributed
among the men who earn a meager
living by the sweat of their brows:
Since the prohibition law was passed
And this old town of Butte went
There's many an honest toiler
Puts more butter on his bread.
But there's many an artful dodger
Who sells booze upon the sly,
With a big fat wad he'll thank his
That Montana state went dry.
There's many a fat saloon man
Who won't give up his trade,
After many years' indulgence,
To face life sober he's afraid;
After many years' fat living,
With his belly rounded out;
With cheeks like a rose
And a runm-red nose
And legs that are lame with gout.
To put a cop upon his track
Well. that would never do;
For a big fat cop
Couldn't take his flop
W'ithout a dop of the morning dew.
For a cop is nearly human,
He has thirsts like other men,
He'd walk his beat
Up and down the street
And back to his whisky den.
But Jackson has another plan
To soak up this old town;
He'll gather all his stools around,
And in the mines he'll send them
And like an honest working man
They will go on shift,
And they'll pump every man they
Who works in a raise or drift.
And many's a son of Bacchus
With dust stuck in his throttle,
With a drop of the like he'll give
To the stool about the bottle.
And now safe in the courthouse
Is the whisky, rum and wines,
Since Jackson put his stools
A-stooling in the mines.
But soon these stools will tumble
And come out with the men;
Because they won't be able
To get whisky. runt or gin;
For now we're oullt on strike
And forget the mountain dew,
The stools must now take one big
And join the O. B. t. ,

continue out of work today and no
garbage collection is being made. A
number of delivery trucks hauled
refuse from the larger stores and
plants to the incinerator, but few
deliveries of garbage from private
homes were made.
So far as can be ascertained, no
relief for the drivers on tile part of
the city administration is promised
until after the council meets tomor
row night. At that meeing it is ex
pected that the collection and dis
posal of city garbage will be turned
over to t"alkner & Shea. Butte men
who were recently awarded the con
tract.. for such work. Under the
terlms of their contract as drawn,
however, Messrs. Falkner and Shia
need not take over the garbage con
tract until March 15.
City Health Officer Matthews this
morning asserted that there was Iut
little danger to the health of the com
munity froml garbage accumutttlations
as long as thile present weather con
tinues. Ite issued a request to all
householders to dispose of their
gaibage by burning, however, rather
than permit it to accuitiulate.
Superintendent Jerry Sullivan of
the street and alley department said
that the city teamsters are sill on
srike and declared that from present
indications they would continue
away from work until provisioll was
made for the paymlent of salary ar
rears. He said there is no method
by which the city administration can
force the m0en to work.

It is expected that the taking of

from the fact that there yet remain
some 40 persons who have been sum
