It is doub'.ful if any school in, the territory of equal attendance, can show us good a recoid.

They also made up 100 excellent scrap books for the military hospitals in France; they collected large quant ities of materials of all kinds suitable for clothing for children of France and Belgium, most of which material was turned over to the girl?' school which made the garments in suitable form for donation. The girls also did fine work in sup plying and preparing writing pads, soap, talcum etc., for comfort kits for soldiers. Represented On Working Reserve The school had 250 boys listed in the U. S.

The funeral took place on Sun day afternoon and was attended by many friends of the family. Inter ment was in the Wailuku Cemetery. Mr. Trabus was born in Charlotten burg, Germany, in 1S47, being 72 years of age at the time of his death. He emigrated with his wife from Ger many in 18S3, coming to this territory where he lived until his death. He was for 12 years a nightwatchman at Kamehameha Schools, Honolulu, com ing later to Maui. He had not been well for some time before he died, but had been fill ing his position as watchman at the Wailuku mill up to about a week be fore he died. The deceased is survived by a wife, four sons and two daughters. Three of his sons, John, Albert and William live in Honolulu, as does one daughter Mrs. Edward Ward.

Not only Montana suffered comparatively little from the slowing down of war work, but recon struction projects, which are expect ed to add greatly to the activities of the state, are hardly more promising and Important than those industrial and commercial projects which were halted by the war shortly, it is prob able, will resume full blast. Thus far.with the exception of loss of contracts by the manganese industries at Butte, Philipsburg and Great Falls, no line of favor worth mention, within the confines of the Treasure state, has witnessed diminution of effort through cessation of the war. Mine, mill, farm, field and factory from border to border, with the possible exception of a phase of the lumber Industry are in full operation and expect to con tinue to do so, it is said, on peace nnlnrs, for many a month to come. i ilway development, highway ex pansion and the completion of irriga tion projects, together with other and hardly less important plans seem to assure the state several years of pros perity unprecedented even in Monta na. A half score of railway extensions were on the point of initiation when lack of material and labor called a halt before American entered the war. Since this country's enunnce, and un der federal control, only one sli'it line, tho Bl-'.ckioot estention of the Milwaukee in tht wesUrn fart of the state, has bten handiec. There are no official tidings of what the govern ment mean.-i to jio, but aji.e the pres ident is kr.'iwn .o fa . any feasible plan to provilo vmpIoyuint It li sumed .-hat even whl"i under federal management i.'ese ex eut-in: will Ve undertake! as 8. on as materials can be obtained and workers assembled. Bills now pending for great ap propriations for the numerous irriga tion projects in the state give hope that active work on them will be push ed during the coming year. Large sums for highway develop ment will be available for Montana from both federal and state sources, and it is understood that the state highway commission will make every effort to get these roads building next spring and keep them going through the summer. The only dark cloud on Montana's horizon has been the abnormal ship ment of cattle out of the state, due to high prices for feed, and its scarcity. But Inquiry for lands indicate heavy immigration and as the future of the cattle industry, with the gradu al disappearance of the range, must lie with the small rancher it is felt that a year or two will see the cattle business established on as wide a scene and on a firmer basis than be fore. One interesting item to Montana is the news that war t:ucks will be turned over to the postoffice depart ment for immediate extension of the parcel post system. Last fall trucks were used to haul crops from sections without railways and it was said av the time that a wide and comprehen sive use of motors over ciood roads would due to largely increase the population of the state within a short, period. Montana's magnificent dis tances hardly can be ribboned with rails for many years but a workable truck system would enable immi grants to till with profit outlying lands which despite their richness, have not offered proper remuneration be cause of the difficulty of hauling pro ducts. REINDEER INDUSTRY GROWS IN ALASKA JUNEAU, Alaska, Dec. 26 (By Mail.) (By Associated Press.) Alaska's reindeer industry including that part, which is in the hands of the natives, is thriving, according to Superintendent W. T. Lopp of the In dian Education bureau.

On Seward Peninsula, according to Mr. Lopp, there are now about 120, 0C0 reindeer in tho Iibik.b of tie na tives. Tesiden th'ir ri.Wes or meat to outside points, the natives use the meat for thcii own bubsistence aud derive a considerable revenue from its sale in Nome and other peninsula points.

Montana Urged To Keep Wages Up For Awhile BUTTE, Mont., Dec. 26 (By Asso ciated Press.) Urgent appeal to em ployers of Montana not to attempt to reduce wages while the cost of living remains abnormally high, is contain ed in a letter mailed today by John H. Mcintosh, state manager of the Montana Employers Association Mem bership. "Reconstruction problems are many and complex, but none are more im portant, more vital, none closer to the future of industry and to the very heart of the country itself than those relating to labor conditions as well as those having to do with the welfare of returning soldiers" writes Mr. Mc intosh. "Make no effort to reduce wages or materially change working conditions at this time. Wages which were boost ed disproportionately high because of war conditions must ineviatably come down and fair minded wage earners recognize this fact, but to reduce wages before commodity prices are lowered, to lessen the pay of the work ers before . living costs are cheaper, Is a financial and moral wrong and can mean nothing but economic con fusion," continues the letter. The letter appeals for the restora tion of all men who entered military service to their former jobs, wherever this is possible, and advises the em ployer to study and work for construc tive progress, expressing the opinion that the business of the future will have four partners, the employer, the employe, the executive management and the public. Manager Mcintosh term the spread of Bolshevism, the greatest menace to America and calls on businessmen to "Spread the gospel in every day in tercourse that our republic is the best on earth, that like all human agencies, evil creeps in but that in time these are remedied through the ballot and that there is no excuse for Bolshevism nor a class government in America."
