LIBEL SUIT AGAINSIT
BUTTE MINER CONTINUED
Claim of Isadore Simon for
$5,000. Put Over to Next
Term of Court; Miner Al
By a stipulation filed this morning
in the office of the clerk of the dis
trict court, Isadore Simon's libel
suit against the Butte Miner was va
cated and continued over the pres
ent jury term. It was to have come
up regularly on June 25.
The time for arguing a motion for
leave to file an amended answer, al
so set for June 25, was moved ahead
to some undetermined date in the
diln future, when it shall please both
parties to take the matter up again.
This suit against the Miner for
$5,000 is the result of a news story
published in its columns more than
a year ago in which Mr. Isadore
Simon, well known jeweler, was re
ferred to as having been arrested
for failing to report to the police
some dealings in second hand jew
elry. Mr. Simon, the donor of the
"I.Simon" medals for which the high
school contend in declamatory con
tests every year, thought that he had
something coming from the Miner
for this story and started suit.
The Miner claimed that the story
was merely an unfortunate mistake,
due to a confusion of names.

Personal Experiences With
Profiteers Convinces Mr.
O'Meara That Something
"Higher wages will never solve
the problem of industrial unrest as
long as the leeches sucking the blood
of the workingman and his family
are allowed to continue." No bol
shevist wrote this. Fred C. O'Meara,
writing in the Michigan Manufactur
er and Financial Record, had some
personal experiences with the genus
profiteer. His landlord raised the
rent on him. his wife reported some
discrepancies in retail meat, and
grocery charges; he learned from a
manufacturer friend of his that some
fellow is making nearly $300 a
month from an apartment house with
only 80 small furnished apartments;
he tells of a man in the commission
business in potatoes who not long
ago built himself a $150,000 home.
"His wife," says Mr. O'Meara,
"drives an electric and he sports two
or three high-priced cars. He goes
to Florida in the winter and belongs,
probably, to half a dozen high-toned
clubs." "How did he do this?" in
quired the writer, if not by taking
from the men employed in our fac
tories unjust and dishonest dollars?"
"I am not trying to whitewash
the emplo'ier. A good many thou
sands of them have been bad enough
in the past, God knows. But I am
willing to give credit where credit
is due. And I know, as I know the
facts herein stated, that the great
majority if the employers of Michi
gan are doing everything within
their power-and by' 'within their
power' I mean that many of them
are actually risking their financial
standing-by paying the limit of
wages to their employes to help them
meet present living conditions. One
concern, in particular, whose confi
dence I enjoy, showed a loss of $6,
800 during the month of February,
I due to the fact that they kept up and
even raised wages, notwithstanding
that they had to sell every pound of
their produ'ct at a loss because the
bottom had fallen out of prices. The
president of this concern got at the
heart of the whole business when he

MAIY REVIVE CRPSE OF
SKALKAIIl ROAD PROJECT
That there is still some hope of
the construction of that much-needed
Skalkaho road which would bring
the fruit and produce of the Bitter
Root valley to the public market of
Butte without the costly aid of the
railroads and the produce companies,
is evidenced by the statement of the
county commissioners yesterday that

It is the purpose of these people
to form local organizations in each
county to aid in stimulating interest
in the construction of roads. If the
state of Montana can raise $5,500,
000 for the building of highways, the
federal government will donate 'an
equal amount. With $11,000,090 a
considerable strip of highway might
be built. It is possible, eihen, that
Butte and the Bitter Root may be
connected up with such a road as
would enable the farmers of the val
ley to run their stuff into the great
mining camp on their own market
There was considerable agitation
for the construction of this road, a
few months back. The project met
with universal populai support, and
seemed well on the way toward ma
terialization. The county commis
sioners of Silver Bow were for it
strong. But the thing suddenly fell
through. Some people say that the
federal government, which was to
aid in building it, ran out of money.
Others claim that the big produce
companies which have been feeding
Butte since Butte began, got busy,
through the agency of one Sandy
Currie (Virden and Curie) and, in
their zeal to aid the project, rushed
