The Northern Pacific road is now open for business from one end to the other the towboats and scows that have been conveying passengers and baggage across the artificial lake at McKenzie have been pulled up on the bank and left as a reminder of the great snow storm of March, 1902. Trains will be running over the line on schedule time tomorrow; they are gliding along only three hours late to day. This morning General Agent Merriman of the Butte end of the line received from Charles S. Fee, general passenger agent, a telegram requesting him to re sume the sale of through tickets at once. The message also stated that the line was open for business. The telegram was as follows: Selling Tickets Again., "Trains 3 and 4 crossed the break yes terday and will now run regularly. Will advise you as soon as possible regard ing Nos. 11 and 12 being re-established. Resume the sale of tickets to all points at once." A message was also received from H. J. Horn of Livingston, superintendent of the Montana division of the road. "No. 3, due in Billings this morning," says the message, "is a through train of 14 cars. "It got over the washout in Dakota last night. It is now three hours late. Two sections of No. 3 will leave St. Paul tonight." On the strength of the opening Eugene Brink, the city ticket agent, began the sale of tickets East and did a rushing business during the day. SCHOO'L BOARD RECONSIDERS At the niceting of the school board last evening the nemlbel s voted to build the new Hobart school on the West Park street s.te. At last night's meeting Trustee White moved that the former action of the schk.ol board be reconshldered, as the Hobart site was considered Impractica 'ble for many reasons. Mr. Moulthrop moved, as an amend ment. that the.building be constructed on the Hobart site, and when the motion was put it was fournd that it was the wish of the board to reconsider its former action, Clinton, Lane and White voting for reconsideration and Moul throp and Welrick voting for the IIobart site. "Besides requiring the construction of a sewer," said Mr. Clinton, "the location is for many reasons undesirable. The site is a hole and would require an enor mous expenditure for filling." He old not believe that the city would agree to pay for the sewer as claimed by the advocates of the site, and after mak ing comparisons and hearing the opinion of the city engineer he was convinced that the proposed site was not one which should be favored by the trustees. Mr. White moved that the building committee be empowered to negotiate with the owners of the property known as the West Park street site and pur chase it at a price not to exceed $5,850 on receipt of a satisfactory title. The motion was carried, Moulthrop and Weirick again voting against it. The next question which came up was the nature of the building to be erected, and it was finally agreed that it should have 17 rooms and be of the two-story and -basement type-three basement rooms and seven on each of the two floors. The building will cost $50,000 approxi mately. SAYS IT'S REALLY DIFFERENT It is understood that the mediums of the city will fight the license question. Mrs. C. Rutledge was recently fined $25 for failing to have a license authorizing her to ply the calling of a medium in this city. The case has been appealed, to the district court, and Mrs. Rutledge will at tempte to prove that her fine was with out law to back It up. She claims to be , regularly ordained Spiritualist minister of the First Nationalist Spiritualist as sociation of Butte, and therefore exempt from ordinary license laws governing mediums. The 'case was submitted to Judge Boyle upon an agreed statement of facts. The statement says that Mrs. Rutledge's work was in the form of lec tures on spiritualism, for which she charged fees. The difference between a medium and a lecturer on spiritualism will be shown in this case probably, and the question of whether or not both are amenable to the medlium license law or not be deter mined. N. PROGREBA WENT AWAY Mrs. Elizabeth Progreba today sued her husband, Norbert Progreba, for a divorce on the grounds of desertion and failure to support her. The complaint says the couple were married at Waverly, 1Minn., 19 years ago, and that they lived together until February, 1899, when Progreba deserted the plaintiff. Mrs. Progreba says her husband has wrongfully lived apart from her ever since 1899 and has not furnished her with the necessaries of life. She alleges that he owns 80 ocres of land in Minnesota, worth $3,500, and is the owner of other property worth $700, and that he is able to support her If he desires to do so. No children are mentioned, and all that Is asked for is a decree of divorce. WILL OF THE LATE JO'HN NOYES The will of the late John Noyes was filed in the district court today for pro bate by Attorney John F. Forbis. The will leaves half of all 'Mr. Noyes' prop erty to his wife and half to his children. The children are Mrs. W. McC. White, Mrs. A. P. Heinse, John D. Noyes am-i Thomas C. Noyes.

Three did not walk out one at the Anaconda, who remained on account of an accident in the mine; one at the Diamond, who remained to lower teed to the mules, and one at the High Ore, who decided to remain until the Dumping engineer reported for duty. The walk-out was not uuthorlied by the Stationary Engineers' union and can not be considered a strike. Not lanctioned by Union. The union, it is understood, declined to make a demand for an increase of wºages and when the matter was put to a vote of its members was always voted down. The action of the men In leaving their posts was therefore independent of the sentiment expressed in the meeting of lthe union. About a year ago the stationary en 'glineers in the employ of the Anaconda company entered into a written agree ment with the corporation, the agree ment being signed by both parties to it. Ily its terms the engineers receive $4 per day for eight hours' work for a pe riod of two years. Only one year of the time has expired. The urgeement is us follows: The Agreement. On March 9, 1901, in pursuance of ne gotiations between a committee repre senting the Stationary Fngineers' union and the president and other represena-l tives of the Annaconnda conilpany, a writ ten agreement was entered into between the union anid the Anaconda company concerning the conditions of eioiploy ment of the nIeltbers of that union. Tile agreement is as follows: "lIutte stationary Engineers' Tnion, No. 83, Western Federation of Minhtrs. Bultt, Mont., March 9, 1901.-Agree titent, made this date between Ii. S.

Mr, Scallon's Statement. \illiam Scallon, president of the Ana ciotila company, authlorlized the follow ing statement in behalf of thee Anaconda, I'ai rot and Washue comnipanies, last. nilght. "A committee representing the hoist on Mr. Kent, master mechanic, on Tues day.evening, March 25, arnd made a de rmand for an increase of wages from $4 'tb $5 per day, notifyling blim that if the demand were not granted within 10 days !he engineers would walk out at tihe ex ilhatlon of that time. They further .stated that it was not a strike and that tile company could fill their places. "Otn March 31, and again on April 1, Mr. Ktent told the engineers that the demaniitid could not be granted. At about two minutes before 6 o'clock this even ing a commitltee of three hoisting en giae'rs appeared at the house of Mr. Kent and told him that all the hoisting engineers would quit their places at 6 o'clock. The hoisting engineers work eight hours, one shift going on at 7 o'clock in the morning, a second at 3 in the afternoon and a third at 11 o'clock in the evening, At 6 o'clock this even ing the engineers who had gone on shift at 3 o'clock quit work without ilnishing their shifts. There were three excep tions of engineers, whlo ciontinued work temtporarily-one at the Anaconda mine, on account of an accident; the second at the Diamond, for the purpose of lower Ing feed to the mules, and the third at the High Ore, until the pumping en gineer should come on. The 10-day period would not have expired until Fri day, April 4. "in pursuance of the agreement the comprcssor me.n and sucth other men as had hten working 12 hours, were put on eight-hour shifts. The Boston & Mon tnna, the Butte & Ioston, the Parrot, the Washoe and the tolorado companies adotttd the same rule In pursuance of a general understandingK to that effc,,t. 'i'ihi agreement has bIeen lived up to on the part of the companies. They rely on the union to fulfill its part of tile cotract, and they feel confident that it will make good its agreemnent." Not a Strike. President Stevens of the Butte Station ary Engineers' union says that the ac tion of the hoisting engineers was not authorized by the union; that it was an individual move on their part. Last night a meeting of those who quit work was held In room 100 of the Owsley block. The session lasted about four hours and at its close the following state ment was given out: "Btutte, Mont., Apri! 1, 1902. -The di rect-acting hoisting engineers of the Anaconda, Washoe and Parrot corn panies engaged in the walk-out for ad vance in wages met this evening and organized a union to he known as the Direet-Acting Hoisting Engineers' union of lutte, Mont. The following officers and committee were elected: President, George O. (Grady; secretary, Alfred H. Marsh; executive committee, George O. Grady, John Jtudd John Riley, Walter G. Pace, Charles McDonald." Twenty-eight Walked Out. The organization of the new union was the result of the refusal of the pa rent body to sanction the demand for an increase in wages. The Butte Stationary Engineers' union contains several hundred members, but of the total only 82 are hoisting en gineers and only 28 of the latter walked out.
