CITY HALL JOBS
Much Interest and Specula
tion Ovei Appointments
to Be Made by Mayor
No sooner had it been c: utired that
\W. T. Stodden, republican, had been
elected mayor of Butte than there
b)egan a quiet campaign ;italong re
publicans to dispose of soime of the
offices within the gift of the new ad
ministration. Mayor-(hlet Stodden
hasn't ntmade a move a; yet and has
not signified to any of his friends so
far as known his selection for any
city offlice. He annoulncied that he
would take his time in making up
t11e list of those who were to be
placed on the city payroll and that
he would seek tIlie best men avail
able for the several positions to be
filled by appointment.
However, that hasn't prevented
the slattelmakers i-from making selee
tions of their own and neither has it
kept a numbter of persons from let
ting it be known that they would be
in a receptive mood regarding this
or that job.
There is the office of city attorney
to be lilled with one and possibly
two assistants. Friends of good re
publican lawyers are pointing to
thetm as being the caliber of mten
needetld to help the new adlministra
tion over the rough spots. In this
connecttion there are imntioned such
uten as It. L. Clinton, Judge J. M.

and Joseph Griffin. Wh\ther any of
thetm desire tilhe post aallllirently ha:

I'or city clerk, therei are men

which there appears to he no direct
taspirants, although the natmes of
suclh prominent reputblicans as Dr.
11. C(. Monalhan and Dr. E. IR. Grigg
have been imentioned.
The city engineer will be another
important position which Mr. Stod

RAING AT HAVANA
CLOSES THE SEASON
The winter racing season closed
with the running of the races at
Havana. New Orleans has long been
over, but Havana has been battling
along after receiving a setback of
more than a week, caused by the so
cial unrest and the general strike
called in the Cuban capital. It is
understood that the Cuban track had
another successful meeting, but the
effect of the war on tourist trave!
was still felt, for it was necessary to
secure passports in order to get te:
Cuba, and the government did not
grant them to every one applying.
In fact, a person had to show busi
ness reasons for going there or hii.
application was refused. There n\ever
was any confirmation or denial of
the deal whereby former Congress
mian Loft and Senor A. H. Diaz were
to assume control of the track next
season, but the best posted persons
are of the opinion that the deal will
go through. The present owners a.rc
receiving a. handsome profit on their
investment if the deal is consum
mated, and they believe that now i:
the tlime to sell if they desire to do
so. It is likely that Chrislopher J.
Fitzgerald will be general manager
if the deal is pulled, and it is also
'ikely that Frank .1. Bruen will be
found with a more responsible posi
tion than he holds now. Brown and
his associates in the Cuban track
have conducted it along the highest
class lines and all that the new
owners have to do is to follow in hir
footsteps. If II. D. Brown sells it
will mean his retirement from the
racing game, but ino one believes
that a restive spirit like that pos
sessed by Brown will be idle long.
He will bob up somewhere building
a new race track, unless this .is a
poor guess. Watch Florida. It looks
as though there is something doing
dlown that way.

Leo Miller. a signal man of the
first class, aboard the 1'. S. S. Rijn
dam, is on a furlough visiting his
mother, Mrs. Fay Miller, and giand
parents. Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Wilson,
1032 South XWyoming street. Mr.
Miller, who is but 19 years of age,
volunteered in the United States
navy in the month of October, 1917,
has crossed the Atlantic 20 times,
and has had the experience of hely
ing sink German submarines. The.
vessel, U. S. S. Rijndamn, on which
he has niade hi:; trips across the At
lantic, was next to the U. S. S. Presi
dent Lincoln May 31 last, when it
was torpedoed. The torpedo which
struck the U'. S. S. President Lin
colon missed the 1'. S. S. Rijndam by
only about 20 feet. As this was the
first trip of Mr. Miller across the Al
lantic and it being the first subma
rine encounter he was in, he thought
it was a rather thrilling experience.
Mr. Miller says: "As soon as the U'.
S. S. President Lincoln was struck
we sent out S. O. S. calls for torpedo
boat destroyers, and the vessels
along with us went in differeiht diret
tions ill ortder to avoid miore tot
pedocs. Shortly after we had left
the scene of the I. S. S. President
Lincoln we got into another submna
rine entcounter, with anothler sub
marine, which we hit and finished.
Thre mok~c-taek of our vessel after
that carried a big gold star."
"It is reported,' 'said Mr. Miller,
"Lieutenant Isaacs, an hoard the 1;.
S. S. President Lincoln, with a bunch
of his men were picked up by the'
German submarine and taken aboardt

submarine is said to have said to
Lieutenant Isaacs, 'Iello, Mr.

years are up. He likes the service so
well that he says he may volunteer
