This motion was made in the
afternoon before any evidence in the
case had been taken. It was argued
at some length by D)an MI. Kelly and
William It. Rodgers, attorneys for
the company, and Alex Mackel and
H. A. Tyvand, representing Wirta.
\Virta had asked for $22,000 as

fire as occurred on June 8, 1917,

A suit has been instituted in the
listrict court by the Butte Buick
mompany against the county of Silver
Bow to collect $1,799, alleged to be
long past due for a certain 45-horse
lower Buick touring car, purchased
)y the county commissioners March
25, and for certain miscellaneous ap
purtenances itemized as follows: One
bumper, $15; one 33-4 casing,
$39.25; one 33-4 red tube, $6.75;

OFFICERS BAIl CACHE
OF 1,000 COLD BOTTLES
Full bottles of ice cold beer to
the number of 1,000 were seized by
Special Officer Jack Melia and Con
stable Frank Coultts at Ike Hanson's
place on the main "stem" of Mel
rose yesterday. The bottles were
nicely packed in ice when found by
the officers. A number of cases of
empty bottles also were seized, in
addition to a safe, two bars, a pool
table, a poker table, glassware and
a pint flask half full of whisky.
Officers had been notified that
the dry law was being violated at
Hanson's place and the sudden de
scent of the law yesterday was the
result. The contraband liquor was
brought to Butte in trucks.
MEETING OF LADIES
COMMEND MRS. SULLIVAN
A large party of ladies met at a
local hotel yesterday and discussed
the recent outrage to one of their
sex. While most of the ladies were
not acquainted with Mrs. Nellie
Sullivan, county auditor, they regis
tered approval of her policy in
handling her office, and praised her
efforts in behalf of the taxpayers.
They felt, however, that Mrs. Sulli
van could do more effective work in
checking up the expenditures for the
upkeep of the poor farm, which is
costing about double what it did
under the supervision of Mrs. Den
nison, with from 225 to 280 patients,
against 105 at present.
The action of Mrs. Violet Cooney
was severely censured. As Mr.
Cooney and wife are now provided
for handsomely by the county of
Silver Bow, the ladies feel that the
advertisements placed in the sheet
called the Montana American should
be withdrawn and placed with The
Bulletin, a paper representing the
best interests of Butte.
MGS. COONEY'S VICTII
IS PALE BUT WORKING
1Mrs. Nellie Sullivan, county audi
tor, is at her desk again in the
courthouse. She is looking ill and
thin, and bears the mark of a heavy
blow upon her brow. The assault
made upon her by Mrs. Byron
Cooney in the hallway of Mrs. Sulli
van's home, No. S South Montana
street, occurred last Saturday eve
ning. This is the first time Mrs.
Sullivan has been down to her of
fice since she was injured.
Mrs. Sullivan said that she had
not yet made her application to the
court for the right to carry a gun.
