NOT NOUG6I NAMIS WILL DE.*LY A$5E OOUrNCIL TO BUSINESS MEN'S ASSOCIATION Decided at a Meeting Held Last Night That Business Men of City Were Not Bumoiently Represented on Petition. The Business Men's Association decid ed at a meeting held last night to delay the presentation to the city council of the petition asking the latter to close the poolrooms of Butte. The step was taken because the association is dissat isfied with the number of names the petition contains. It was the unanimous agreement of the gentlemen present at the meeting that the business men of the city were not sufficiently represent ed In the petition, many of them not having signed it. D. J. Hennessy moved the meeting that it be resolved that no action in the premises be taken until at least two thirds of the business men of the city should have signed the petition, and the motion was unanimously carried. The following gentlemen and firms have at tached their signatures to the ietition thus far: These Indorse Closing. J. E. Rickards, D. J. Hennessy, P. J. Brophy, S. V. Kemper, J. D. Slemons. O.

A number of the gentlemen present spoke on the subject of the action of the association in carrying on the move ment against the poolrooms, and comn doubt was expressed concerning the wisdom of the policy embodied in it. Divided on Many Things. Mr. Hennessy said that the poolroom matter was not the only one the Inem ters of the association and the business men generally had failed to agree u!,on, and that the business men wr'? dliv!.l.d upon the subject of a union ,ellt. Judge Speer and ex-Governor itickards deplored the division described by Mr. Hennessy. William Ilorgan said that It .x:Ms pioes tionable whether It came wit' a the province of the association at ill t meddle with morals or furth'r morIa: reforms. P. J. Brolphy made a speech in which he eulogized the present school boarl], and other gentlemen present coral,li mented the latter in flattering terms. The following resolution was presented iL Mr. Brophy and passed unanimously: School Board Indorsed. "Realizing the sacrifice of time, the expenditure of money, the application of business tact and the experience nec essary to the development and manage ment of the public sciools of this dis trict, the Business Men's Association expresses its 'hearty commendation of the work done in this direction by the present board of school trustees, and feels that the board as at plresent con structed, is entitled to the thanks of the community. Our educational systetm -hits been improved, our facilities in creased and the public's money jud! clously expended; therefore it is to ,o hoped that the present organlizatlon of the board of school trustees may be continued, and that the retiring members whose terms expire shortly may be in duced in the interest of the most im portant public department, to offer themselves for re-election and the in dorsement of their administration by the people whom they 'have served." It. N. Davidson and J. M. Doull were elected directors of the association i, place of Ben E. H-arrris and D)r. D). M. Newbro, resigned.

BEGAN WEIGHING MAIL TODAY The United States government began today to determine the amount of its indebtedness to the railroads for carry ing mail, and official weighers will spend 35 days on the trains for that purpose.

ANNA WAS THERE TOO OFTEN "Look here, Anna," said Judge BMoyle this morning, "you've been up .h"re too often altogether on this charge of drunkenness. I'll make your fine $10 this time and keep you down in jail for a little longer time." It was Anna Vassey's 109th appear ance on a charge of drunk and the po lice asked for a longer time in order to keep her in. Jim Smith was fined $5 on a chargt of being drunk and the same amount was assessed against H. Smith and J. Dow\e for committing a nuisance. John Hiller, accused of creating a !1is 'turbance, took 24 hours to plead, ani Ernest Elk was fined $10 for fighting, Jimmie Burns, Dan Doyle and George Meade, arrested last night as :ncor iiglbles, were sent up to the county jail for disposition, iREY WITH YEARS, AND LONEL[SS A WOMAN TELLS OF HER WOES AND OF HER DESERTION BY HER HUSBAND Decause she couldn't climb a ladder, Mrs, TIllie Benson, aged 60 years, is still looking for her husband, Charles Benson. Because of efforts of others to assist the husband instead of the woman, the 'wife is still walking the streets and haunting the police station in search of 'the man she declares she still loves and wants as her lawful husband. The story of ?4rs. Benson is one which should arouse the sympathy of every person who comes in contact with her. It has won completely that prince of man-hunters, Jerry Murphy, ald' Mrs. Benson, after many weary, painful days of rebuffs and suffering, i 'apt' to get justice done her. Mrs. Benson came to Butte from th. sthite of Washington shortly before Christmas, in search of her husband, She Was in destitute cir'umstances on arriving here and was cared for byCllief of Polkce ieynolds for several weeks. Her story was that she came to Hutte to' meet her 'hltbnnd, who avoided her and would have nothing to do with the woman who insists she Ls his lawful wife. For some reason, after a time, the belief gained currency about the pollee station that Mrs. Benson was suffering from a mental affliction, and front that on nothing waen done with her case. The Wvoman never faltered in her search, however, and pers.sted in remaining hete in' order to be near her husband, whom she knew was in Butte. She has been a daily visitor at the pollce station, and often has gone to the county attorney's oftice, but for some reaston the oflicials withost duty It .was to assist her, acco:nplished nothing. Ai'lth a courage born of despair, the wife persevered and finally enlisted the sympaItihlc of l)etectli'e Murt'phy. Mrs. B)enson obtained employment at the Paul ('lark hone ats a laundress, and supported herself while trying to win back her husband, whom she had seen meantime. At the police station this morning the, deserted wife broke down under the long strain, and tite tears which she had bravely, kept batck itn public flowed freely. "I want my husband to return to me," said the dlsltreted woman to the detective and a reporter for the Inter Moultalin. "lie is In Butte, anld every one I meet seems to side with him and assist hint to keep away ftom iitto.

OLD JOHNS CASE NEW PLEADING FILED IN THE LONG-PROSECUTED LAND SUIT. ENOCH JOHN MAKES DENIAL Declares There Are No Minerals on the Land and That No Minerals Were Ever Discovered Upon It. Another pleading in the form of an amended answer has been filed mn the old suit in the, district court in which Joseph V. Long and Charles V. Cannon are the plaintiffs and Enoch Johns and about 50 other pc ople are the defendants, and in which the subject matter Is valu able land south of the city. The plaintiffs brought the suit to re cover the land on the ground that it is mineral land and that they have j patent for It as such lank The defend ants contest the suit and assert owner ship of the land on the ground that it is placer ground and that they bought it from the Northern Pacific railroad. Big Rental Demanded. The mineral patent of the plaintiffs 1s of date 1893. The deeds of the defend ants from the railroad date 1882. The defendants have had possession of the land since the time they bought it, and they deny that there are any minerals on it and deny that *the plaintiffs ever discovered any minerals .,n it. The plaintiffs not only suet for title, but demand $27,000 for rents and profits from the time they became the alleged owners of the property in 1893. The defendant, Johns, says in the amended answer that tlhe land was granted to the railway by the govern ment "to aid In the construction of a railroad and telegraph line from Lake Superior to Puget Sound on the Pacific coast by the Northern route." The land is worth a great deal of moniey at present on account of the growth of Butte, and the struggle for it is of a severe character.
