There's going to be things doing again at the meeting of the city council next Wednesday night, and those things will have to do with the battle between the mayor and chief of police and the alder manic supporters of the suspended "rebels." Alderman. Duggan is authority for the statement that the fight has not been abandoned, but will be carried into the council mebtfng. The alderman will be one of the leaders of the fight, and will be supported by his running mate, Alder man Dempsey, who also thinks an in justice has been done to the suspended officers. Just what the nature of the first alder manic move will be has not been given out, but there are. rumors that the charges against Chief Reynolds will be presented and an inquiry asked for. To Ignore Police Committee. It is the plan to have everything taker before the council as a committee of the whole, instead of leaving the investiga tion to the police committee. Charges against Chief Reynolds.were prepared a couple of weeks ago, but the publication of the fact that such would be presented, and the sudden and unex pected counter-move of the mayor in EXPLODING GAS ENDANGERS LIVES One of the hardest.fires to fight that the Butte department has encoun tered in many a day, broke out shortly after 4 o'clock this morning in the St. Elmo restaurant, No. 811 Utah avenuer The flames spread to adjoining buildings, and for a time it looked as if the entire block just north of the Butte, Anaconda & Pacific depot was doomed. Chief Sanger and his men were on the pcene In quick time, and the Ari zona street company did splendid work in getting the fire under control. The chief decided that the one company could handle the fire, but some one turned in a telephone alarm to the central station and the Quartz street hose wagon was down and at work before the fire chief discovered them. Gasoline Tank Exploded. The fire was particularly dangerous on account of the gasoline stored in the restaurant. One of the small tanks exploded soon afterethe fire started and the other went up with a roar after the firemen had got inside and were at work. No one was injured among the fire fighters, but it was a close call. Trouble was experienced in getting water on the fire in volume, owing to the cold. The water froze almost as soon as it left the nozzles, and this hampered the firemen. Within an hour and a half the flames were extinguished, however, and the adjoining property saved. The St. Elmo restaurant was owned by G. T. Camp. The fire started underneath the cooking range and spread with gretit rapidity. The building was a one-story affair, to which cheap additions had been built, and which were easily inflamed. Inmates Narrow Escape. Mr. Camp and his wife were in a room adjoining the kitchen, and the cook and a dishwasher were sleeping near the range. All four had narrow escapes, and just managed to get out in time to save themselves. The flames spread to the building south of the restaurant. Nos. 813 and 815, and which is occupied by the Great Northern saloon and lunch room, owned by Werlin & Siegenthaler. Quick work by the firemen extinguished the fire in the saloon part before any great loss was incurred, though the hall and roof were burned out. The saloon men lost considerable stock, as they invited the bystanders to assist to carrying out the liquors. As Did the Roman Nero. A number of hoboes joined gleefully in the rescue work, and after accumu lating a large stock of liquors, went over into boxcars and drank up the supply and made merry while watching the fire. The restaurant building and fixtures were entirely destroyed, and the total loss on the fire is placed by Chief Sanger at about $1500. The saloon people claim a loss of $600, and Camp fixes his loss at $1000. Both Buildings were insured. North of the restaurant is a rooming house, the occupants of which were driven out in their nightclothes. Some of them were nearly frozen before they could muster up courage sufficient to carry them hack into the partially burned house after more clothing. suspending the four patrolmen resulted in a delay. One of the things on which it is under stood charges are based against the chief is an alleged receipt supposed to be signed by him for money received. Duggan Says Council First. The aldermen, and Mr. Duggan in par ticular, deny that they will take a lead ing part in the mass meeting Sunday af ternoon. Alderman Duggan states that the mat ter will come before the council in pro per form,, and that it would not be con sistent for the members of the council to participate in a public meeting before the fact has gone on record that the council will not take action. Efforts are being made to stir up inter est in the mass meeting Sunday, at rwhich it is expected a few pertinent questions will be framed for the perusal of the mayor. The statement was made today that nothing would be said in the meeting about Detective Jerry Murphy. The friends of that popular officer have taken umbrage at the connection of his name with the matter of charges, and quite a lively discussion is going on about the streets and business places where the officer stands high. Breen Is for the Men. County Attorney Breen was inter viewed this afternoon as to his position in the forthcoming investigation by the Citizens' Ledge. "In regard to the statements made that the chief of pollee would come back at the promoters of the mass meeting," he remarked with some emphasis, "all I've got to say is that Mayor Davey and Chief of Police Reynolds are welcome to take the stage at the mass meeting and explain their position if they have any explanation to make. Bays Injustice Has Been Done. SAYS INJUSTICE HAS BEEN DONE.. "There is nothing personal in the mat ter. The object of the mass meeting is to promote the public good. The pub lic feels that an injustice has been done the suspended policemen, "The worst criminal is entitled to a trial before conviction. I deny the right of Mayor Davey or any one else to re fuse it. "If the mayor took his advice from the proper source-the city attorney-he would not get into any such affairs. ELKS PLAYPRAIK8, ANTLIRED HR=D O SILVER OW IN SOCIAL SRSSION. JOHN KIRK RIDES IN PATROL Chief Reynolds Fined for Not Taking Orders From His Subordinates * -Mayor Davey Dis ciplined. Mayor Davey was fined $1 last night for taking rental money trom the Good Citizens' league for the use of the Auditorium. Chief of Police Reynolds was fined for rot taking orders from a policeman, and for not having joined the league, and Attorney J. N. Kirk was arrested for refusing to pay a fine, but on his way to the police station, jumped from the patrol wagon and made a success ful, though rather undignified get-away. The police have not yet found him. The fines were not assessed according to the statutes of the state of Montana, otherwise Mr. Kirk in his capacity of presiding judge and chairman would have been exempt from punishment, for the people of Butte have a profound and awful respect for the "dignity that doth surround a judge." It all occurred at a social session of Elks, who rejoice in their utter indiffer ence to things serious at meetings of this nature. In his official capacity it became the painful duty of Mayor Davey to collect a rental of $12.50 from the Good Citizens league for the use of the Auditorium. If the executive department of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks is In a position to carry out the I mandates of the legislative department, the chief will be required to give back - $11.50 to the Good Citizens and turn f over the other $1 to the society, pre e sumably for its trouble in prosecuting the case. Reynolds la Disciplined. - Willful disobedience and defiance of the - majesty becoming or unbecoming a po lice officer got Chief Reynolds into trouble. In the topsy-turvey ethics of - Elk!and the chief is supposed to salute - each officer whom he meets, to ask his - private opinion on things politic and im I politic and to ask his counsel on all e matters which pertain to the good polic e ing of a good city. The chief made the inexcusable mis - take of presuming that. his office was to t direct the affairs of the city's peace. t For this he was duly reprimanded, and .1 his promptly paid fine swelled the cof fers of the B. P. O. E. t Kilgallon's Trouble. e When Tom Kilgallon proposed John n Kirk for chairman, he was fined for e making such a selection, although his a proposal was greeted with acclaim. e When J. H. Leyson made an elaborate e and ingenious effort to explain the cause of his bachelorhood he found that he had failed to impress his audience and looked satisfied at being permitted to escape with a fine. When Dr. Haviland recited "The Boy Stood oh the Burning Deck," with tears in his eyes, the sentiment was lost, and t he was promptly fined. Lew Callaway of Virginia City paid a fine for leaving Virginia City without a 1 permit. I "He is the mayor," said the chairman, "and should have issued the permit him r self." Ben Harris, Phil Gillis, Frank Brown and others contributed to the general fund for lese majestie and other treason able acts of questionable seriousness. The B. & M. band was incidentally ini tiated into the mysteries of the brother hood, whereat they pealed , forth me lodious music and were fined for mak ing a noise and rqquested to continue r and the band played on.

ADVERTISED LIQUOR HOUSES Shopping Card Issued by Temperance AKdvooates Which Is Net Accord ing to the Code-Selena Ladies Warned. The Woman's Christian Temperance Union of this city considers that it has been Imposed upon, and it's all on ac cotutt of a man. SNow, one of the clauses in the consti tution of the organisation of the W. C. T. U. says that while men may become bonorary members by paying a certain qum .into the treasury and occupying a 'hlg4, and prominent position on the water wagon, they shall not be permitted to vote, nor hold offee in the society. They shall not speak unlese when called upon at the meetings of the so ciety. In fact, it may be inferred from the clause that a man's duty at a meet ing is to go away back and take a chair. By thus legislating against man-talk and man-franchise in matters which per Vila to the annihilation of the seductive juice of the grape the W. C. T. U. showed a keen sense of discrimination and a knowledge of men that is commendable. Smooth and Luave. But there came a man, a smooth in dividual with eanctimonious face and temperate appearance, who shot holes in the wisdom of the wise and created consternation In the temperance brigade of Butte that amounts almost to a sen sation. Mr. Lloyd, apostle of temperance and arch enemy of things liquid, had a scheme, and he propounded the scheme to the ladles of the W. C. T. LT., who promptly proceeded to swallow the scheme, hook, bait, bob and sinker. Jtealizing how requisite it was that a lady should have some ready reference, sonot convenient memorandum to take along on her shopping tours, Mr. Lloyd prolposed to get out a dainty card called the "shopping card," on which would be printed the names of business houses where ladies would find anything they mlght need, from a bottle of soothing syrup to a horseless baby carriage. For this list and this neat, card Mr. Lloyd expected a trilling consideration - a matter of traveling expenses merely, just to help him along from town to town in the cause of temperance and Lloyd. All of which was according to the cu e' flat when the president of the W. C. T. U. picked up one of Mr. Lloyd's dainty cards and saw in red letters the name of a house where red liquor may be pur chased by the pint or barrel, she was naturally just a little annoyed; for the constitution of the organization spe cili-ally states that it Is pledged to "so core the legal prohihition and complete banishment of the liquor traffic and flrald hope for the drunkard, etc." Violated the Agreement. The lady did not consider the red letter advertisement a herald of hope for the Btutte inebriate, nor did she consider that Mr. Lloyd's aetion in putting it there, exuastly consistent with the ter-is of her understanding with him, and so she' went to Chief of Police Iteynolds. Mt's. William L. Curran, the eastilnabile lady who presides over the affairs of the W. C. T. U., said to the chief: "We gave that man e\plicit Instruin tlans to take no advertisemnonts from any louse engaged in the sal' of liquor. The very suggestion of such a place for our ladies to shop is an insult. ''lurthermore, he has not lived up to the terms of his agreement it getting out 'as many copies of the cord as he proposed. "We understand that he is just now solictting advertisements for a similar affair in Helena, and we want to put a stop to it." And that is why Mr. Lloyd will never again sit in the councils-not even away back -in an obscure seat-of the Woman's CChriktian Temperance Union of Butte. Perhaps there was a saving considera tion 'for the feelings of the ladies, in Mr. Lloyd's circulating a very limited num bh'r of the cards, or perhaps Mr. Lloyd Ifounut the cards a little too itxenlltsve. - That is, however, a minor consldera tion just now. rthe fact is that the ladles of the W. C. 'P. Il., through the ignorance or willful iatient of Mr. Lloyd, have been uncon sihitusly advising ladies to shop in estail lishitnents where wInes, Iloutits and cigars ntay be had for the asking. HELENA CHARITY BALL. Affair Will Take Place January Twenty-foul th. (Special to lnteer Mountain.)
