KEW BANKING HOUSE FOR
CARBON AND GALLATIN COUNTY "Montana is becoming a state of banks and banking?" said a St. Paul traveling man to the Inter Mountain hotel reporter this forenoon in the lobby of the Thorn ton. "Band banks?" queried the scribe as he whiffed the smoke of a prime Havana the knight of the grip had given him. "Not on your life," was the emphatic reply. "Banks that deal In money and are run by men who have sand enough to start them. That is the kind of a bank I mean and I will tell you of two of them that are being started in the Eastern section of the state if you whl curb your impatience long enough to listen without interrupting." "It's a bargain," said the reporter, and then he was told. Two New Banks. "Down in the good old county of Gallatin there will soon be a bank started by R. D. Steele and W. S. David son. These two gentlemen have been in business in Gallatin county for a number of yek'rs. Each of them are well known and hhs had experience in handling large affairs. Mr. Steele is engaged in the abstract business at present and Mr. Davidson is a cashier in one of the Boze man banks. They will open shortly in the offices now occupied by Mr. Steele and the prospects are said to be goolt for them to make a good thing out of their venture. Another at Led Lodge. "Then the county of Carbon will have a new bank soon. The president of the new Institution will be W. 13. Nutting and the cashier I. O. Caswell. Both of these gentlemen are well known in the county of Carbon and they are starting out with bright prospects. They will doubtless enjoy a good patronage and while they will not be able to build up a big, paying institution in a day or a year they will in time come out with flying colors. The county of Park has recently a new bank. It Is now in successful operation and doing a good business. Alex Liv ingston, one of the well-known resi dents of the county and a former county officer, is the cashier and Mr. Dolenty is the president. It has been pretty smooth sailing since the institution started. Montana is a banking state. DAN M'DONALD TALKS Of THIl CONDITION Of LABOR Daniel McDonald, president of the Western Labor Union, of Butte, Mont., is visiting his relatives in Sai'-Francisco, says the San Francisco Chronicle. He arrived here last Sunday morning from Seattle and will remain a few days. He disclaims all concern about local labor mnatters and does not even appear to know that there is any trible between unions and councils in this city, and avows that perfect harmony prevails be tween the Western Labor Union and the American Federation of Labor. Speak ing of his organization and its relation to the American Federation of Labor he said: "The Western Labor Union was or ganized at Salt Lake City in May, 1888, and has now about 30,000 members in good standing all over Montana, Utah, Idaho, Oregon, Colorado, Washington, South Dakota, Wyoming and the British provinces. I was elected its first presi dent in 1888 and re-elected at the conven tion held in Denver. The Western Labor Union works on the same lines and In perfect harmony with the American Federation of Labor. There Is ample room for two such organizations without reason, cause, or even the slightest ex cuse for any ill-feeling or antagonism be. tween central bodies organized for the same objects and alms-improving the sonditlon of the wage earner. As a mat ter of fact, the Western Labor Union has contributed between $7,000 and $10,000 to ward the San Francisco strike fund dur ing the recent unpleasantness. While the strike was on we shut out all goods from San Francisco from Montana and es pecially from Butte. Every merchant signed an agreement not to buy goods from dealers or manufacturers In this city until the strike was settled. We have done more for the American Federation of Labor, and are doing it today, within our jurisdiction than the federation was ever able to do for itself. There is no antagonism between the two, and I came here simply on a visit and will not pay the least attention to labor matters." CURFEW WILL RING FOR THEM Eleven boys, whose ages range from 12 to 16 years, were arraigned before Judge Boyle this morning on charges' of violat ing the curfew ordinances. They all pleaded guilty and were released with a lecture from the judge and a threat that another offense would result in their be ing severely dealt with. For months past the entertainments at the auditorium have resulted in a noisy crowd of half grown lads congregating at the entrance to the library and on the stairs where they make life miserable for those attending and shatter the nerves of the library force with their dis orderly actions. Last night Policemen Henderson and Hamilton grew tired of chasing them away and arrested 13, whose names and addresses were given as follows: Sylvester Mead, 481 West Copper; Joseph :Boles, 20 West Copper; Oney Thornton, 6600 North Main; Anthony Bonner, 627 Nevada avenue; John Ken ney, 501'North Main; Frank Rooney, 509 East Park; Will Pascoe, 284 west Quartz; Dick 9Baker, 717 South Arizona; Tom Baker, same; Dan Johnson, 1109 West Woolman; Percy Scholtz, 932 West Granite: Mike Downey, Walkervilllc; James Fitzmorris, Aluminum.

After a persistent search that lasted all (lay and Into the night, the money taken from James Wellman by the woman was found last night. Fifty dollars of the stolen money was handed by the woman to her companion, Nancy Hanks, who was finally prevailed upon to turn it over to the police. A later search resulted in a $20 bill be ing found on Nell. She had hidden the money but was betrayed by some one In' the women's department. All but $60 of the money was recovered. The woman's male friend, William Diehl, had received $20, which was found on him when he was arrested last evening on a charge of receiving stolen money. The remaining $60 is thought to be in the hands of an attorney engaged by the woman. She was removed to the county jail and will be tried on a charge of grand lar ceny. Nancy Hanks is being held as a witness and Diehl will be prosecuted. PERSONAL. J. Miller Is In from Dillon. Ben Wahle is in from Boulder. J. D. Watts is in from Hamilton. George B.
