I. 8. DORBJN, 31-DOG OAMOa3,
Zuaband Is Willing That Bancher
GOry Pay for Mrs. Dorsen in Good
Coin of the Bealm-Gets
baent Sympathy.
*1. ..
I. B. Dorsen was at one time a dog
catcher for the city of Anaconda. Then
Mr. Dorsen went out to the edge of
Granti county and invested in poison
in wholesale quantities with which to
poison coyotes.
Doreen looked long for the dead coy
otes after distributing the poison, but
he didn't know enough about the ways
of the animals. A wise little boy who
knew of the 'ways of brute creation,
went down to the water's edge and,
after Dorsen's poison was eaten, the
coyotes came to the water to die. Then
the little boy took the scalps in for the
Mr. Dorsen got mad and poisoned the
little boy's dogs. Then he took his
wife and went to work for Rancher
Grey, o'er in Rosa' Hole. Sheriff tCon
ley's men went after Mr. Dorsen for
the dog poisoning and Mr. Dorsen was
landed in Jail.
Mrs. Dorsen was left with the rancher
and the pair concluded life was sweeter
without a third man, who happened
to be a husband. When Mr. Dorsen got
away from the barred building he went
back after his wife and something to
An Armed Demonstration.
Mr. Dorsen's feelings were consider
ably mutilated when he entered the
ranch house and found Mrs. Dorsen
Imeekly submitting to a wogan load of
kisses being delivered by Grey. Mr.
D)T made aL "six-shooter play" which
didn't disturb Grey a bit. The rancher
stepped into a side room and brought
out a shotgun and Mr.. Dorsen went
away because he didn't Ilk. his wife
any more and had a greater dislike for
Mr. Dorsen went to Anaconda and told
his troubles to the lawyers. To them
he stated that Grey had much cattle and
some $20,000 which looked better to Dor
een than did Mrs. Doreen. The lawyers
told hint to sue Grey for alienating the
affections of Mrs. Doreen and get the
Meantime Grey and Mrs. Doreen came
to Butte and hence Mr. Dorsen hied
limself as a rancher. He arrived last
night and enlisted thq sympathles of

Dors.n welt away 'his grief on the
manly bosom of the thief-taker and
then lie made a mistake. He told Mur
phy lie didn't care a rap for the woman
-all he wanted was Grey's coin,
They say Jerry is roaring yet.
Unfortunately for Mr. Dorsen, when
he applied to the chief this morning,
sheriff Conley happened in the office.
Then it was that the former dog catch
er's history came to light and the fact
made apparent that he was willing to
give his wife to Grey, but he wanted
the cash in return.
Mr. Dorsen is still haunting the cor
ridors of the city hall, ignorantly dis
regarding the hint that Detective Mur
phy thinks he Is a bunco and should be
In Jail. There may be more trouble in
store for Mr. Dorsen.

Must Pay the Fees.
(By Associated Press.)
Seattle, Feb. 1. - Assistant Attorney
General Dalton of this state, has decided
that all vessels must pay the fees of the
state quarantine officials who inspect the
This decision was occasioned by the
refusal of some of the ships entering Port
Townsend to pay state fees, claiming
that they had already been inspected and
passed by the federal authorities.
In his decision, the state's attorney
quotes authority to show that the es
tablishment of a federal quarantine sta
tion in no way abrogated the legal du
ties of the state board, who must con
tinue to inspect all vessels and collect
the regular fee.

Reseeding the Ranges.
[Yellowtolne Journal.]
Thei restoration of the damnage I and
lhst pasturage on the range of the West
Is engaging the attention of many good
peple and has enlisted the Interest of
the railway officials who are vitally in
torested in .maintaining the carrying
trade with the horse raisers of the
plalns, and the barons in the beef, wool
and mutton industries.
These good people are canvassing the
feasibility of reseeding the ranges, and
they have gotten so far as to begin ex
•periments which shall demonstrate what
grasses are best adapted to the purpose
In hand. After this Is decided, the plan
is, somehow, by some method not yet
settled upon, to rehabilitate the ranges
by clothing them in entirely new ver
dI.re. There appears to be no doubt in
the minds of the experimentors that
these seeds of unacclimated plants may
h/. suc:esstully propagated in the north
west, and 'o fear that this neliy dis
covered pasturage will endure.
There Is great doulbt, however. in the
minds of practical rangenmen of the su..
ce.'s of this enterprise.
Using Others Money. ne
IGallatln County Republican ]
D)uring the past week two Mo,ntuan
.ashiers have been short, In their ac
junts to the tune of about $75,00C. IRoth
were mnu who had the full trust of their
employe, both led fairhl good lives and
both ecarned good salaries as salaries go.
There seems to be such a great tempta
tion to use money belonging to others
that it almost amounts to a fascl.ittlon,
and when there Is practlcally no super
vision of the acts of men holding posl
tions of trust It is difficult to detect their
dishonesty until something goes wrong
and the crime Is discovered by aeldeni.
Men who have good prospects for the
future always learned the truth iof that
maxim, "he who takes what lin't hisn'
when he's cotched he goes to prlson."
Then again, there Is something wrong
with the system of inspecting banks It a
nian can carry on a wholesale pilfering
without detection at the hands of bank
The truth is that whore the tempta
tion is great, in such a degree should the
system be such as to keep man's natural
lualination to go wrong within pounds.
Havre Coal Measures.
[Havre Eagle.]
The coal beds in this vicinity are of
comparatively recently origin. The coal
measures of the East were formred In the
carboniferous age, probably a million
years ago.
The coal of this section was probably
formed In cretaceous age, or about 50,000
years prior to the advent of man, who is
believed to have appeared on earth about
:35,000 years ago.
The coal now being mined near Havre
is taken from shallow mines, but there
is without doubt coal, and better coal, at
greater depths.
The coal now mined Iin here was form
t rly covered by much more soil, for the,
present amount of soil ant! rock could
,never have sup]plie4d the requistit, press
ure to produce coal.
What mineral resources in the form of
coal this vicinity may have is practi
cally unknown, yet there fiay yie hun
dreds of square miles of coal underly
Ing thin section at far greater depths
than any mine now worked here.
It Surely Would.
It is said that one William J, nnlngs

successor to butt his head against the
