At the mass meeting of citizens

Helena, May 22, 1919.
This is to acknowledge receipt of
your lttter of the 18th inst., and in
reply we wish to state that no date
tas been set for a hearing in the
Butte street railway case. The conm
mission frols now that the necessity
for emergency rates no longer exists;
that in justice to the public no fur
ther adjustment or increases in
rates should be made without a coni
ilete investigation and a detailed
physical valuation of the property.
We have, therefore, requested the
nanagement of the Butte Street
Railway company to take immediate
steps to secure a physical valuation
of their system, eliminating the in
vestment in the Columbia gardens.
As soon as this valuation is received
by the commission, we will then have
our engineer makelt a further investi
gation and lcheckl of the valuation
tlaccd upon the property by the cotm
pany. We will then set, a date for a
hearing and will advise you so that
you may appear and offer such testi
nony as you may deem pertinent to
the commission in deciding the case
We have but one official tran
script of the former hearing, whict
contains all exhibits, and we cannot
allow this to leave the office. We
would be very glad, however, to havi

the same. We doubt very muel

JERI M'CARTlHY, IONEER
MAYOR OF BUTTE IS DEAD
Once Prominent in Public
Life of City, Famed Char
acter of Early Days Dies
News of the death at Arkansas
Pass, Tex., of Jeremiah H. Mc
Carthy, one time mayor of Butte
and treasurer of the city for two
terms, was received late Saturday.
While Mr. McCarthy had been in ill
health for some years, his death came
as a shock to his hundreds of friends
and acquaintances among the resi
dents of Butte.
Mr. McCarthy was born in New
York 66 years ago. lie came to
Butte in the early days and through
his popularity and marked ability
won election to the mayoralty in ad
dition to two terms as city treasurer.
Upon retiring from public life he
spent most of his time at his Texas
home in search of health. - Last
winter he spent more than a month
in Butte and was present when the
city passed from what had been
termed the "wettest" city in the
northwest to a "dry" one and at that
time commented on the change from
the Butte of his early days.
In addition to his widow, formerly
M.iss McNeil, a Butte school teacher,
Mr. McCarthy is survived by one son,
Jerry; Miss Florence McNeil of the
Butte public library, a sister, and
Deputy Sheriff Clint McNeil, sister
in-law and brother-in-law.
MARCUS QUIN SUES
Wants $6,000 for Injuries
to. Person and Wreck of
Vehicle in Auto Collision
John Quin, as guardian for 10
ycar-old Marcus Quin, is suing M.
C. Wurtzler and Reese Williams for
$5,100 on one action for damages
sustained by the boy when a Ford
automobile, driven by Wurtzler and
owned by Reese Williams ran down
a buggy on Harrison avenue, May 19.
The boy was in the buggy. The
horse was totally disabled, alleges
Quin, and the buggy demolished. In
another suit, Quin demands $1,000
for the damage to the property.
Tangible evidence of the appreci
ation felt by the children's bureau of
the department of labor and the child
conservation section, Council of Na
tional Defense, for the fine co-oper
ation given their joint children's
year program was afforded in a let
ter of formal recognition recently
sent out to the chairmen of the state
and local child welfare committees in
all parts of the country.
The letter, printed on heavy parch
ment, and bearing at the top the
official seal of the United States, of
fers over the signatures of Miss Julia
C. Lathrop, chief of the children's
bureau, and of Dr. Jessica B. Peix
otto, and Mrs. Ina J. N. Perkins of
the national colncil, acknowledg
ment and thanks for the "high hu
manitarian and patriotic service
rendered in the execution of the chil
dren's year program."
Accompanying the letter is a
bronze medal presented in memory of
children's year. The medal is beau
tifully designed and executed by
Chester Beach. The figure of a little
child upheld by the strength of the
American Eagle and flanked by the
ishes one side of the bronze disk,
while on the reverse side the rays of
a rising sun throws into relief the
names, "Children's Bureau, U. S.
Department of Labor, and Child
Conservation Section, Council of Na
The gratification experienced by
child-welfare workers upon receipt
of this token of recognition of their
efforts is freely voiced in the letters
now coming to the bureau and to the
child conservation section. The
opinion is expressed by a large num
ber of the writers that the carrying
out of the children's year program
has provoked an amount of thought
on the subject of child welfare that
could scarcely have been stirred up
in any other way. 1lany chairmen
report a thoroughly awakened con
science in their particular communi
ties as to conditions which have
been permitted to surround child
life there and proclaim a decision not
to allow children's year to end in
April, 1919, but rather to make of
every year a children's year. Some
chairmen state that they are just be
ginning to reap the fruits of their
ytear of effort and report the women
of their communities as being en
thusiastic in their desire to continue
their work for child welfare.
