TO FIGHT LAW LIQUOOa DALU.8r OOIVR XTION TO OPPOJB MXYBr.A2DIBZ LI C1B OOOLLZCTION. ARE TO MEET IN HELENA TO PLAN THE CRUSADE oAtion of Butte Saloonkeepers in Pay ing Lioense Under Protest Is to Form Basis of Action-Oigars Are Kept Merely as an Accommodation, Bays Seoretary Nissem. Advance notices are out for the con vention of the Retail Liquor Dealers' Protective Association of Montana, which will be held about the middle of May 1n Helena. Gustave Nissem, secretary of the asso ciation, who is busy getting town and county organizations throughout the state, into line, in speaking of the pros pective work of the convention, this morning said: "Of course the convention will have much routine work to transact and a good deal will be said and done concern ing proper organisation among liquor men in the rural districts and their afflliation with the national association. But the burning question of the cigar li cense law will probably be the most In teresting topic discussed at the conven tion, although what action the conven tion will take I am unable to say. "I cannot believe that the courts of this state will decide that it is just to compel retail liquor dealers to pay a separate license on cigars. Some people cling to the idea that the saloonkeeper makes an enormous profit on the cigars he sells, but I speak advisedly wihen I say that the saloonkeeper keeps cigars for the accommodation and convenience of his patrons and not for the profit ther is in selling them. No Proht in Cigars. "When you figure it right down there is no profit in the sale of cigars In the saloon business. Enough cigars are given away in the average saloon by the bar tender in treating partons to offnset any profit that might accrue. In other words the liquor dealer looks upon his cigar case as a necessary adjunct to his busi ness. "I believe tsat the authorities of Butte were not justified in interpreting the li cense law in the manner they did. The saloonkeepers paid the license under protest and simply because they had no other recourse. P. H. O'Toole, refused to pay the license on the advice of the association and his case will be fought to the bitter end. "The agitation was started through the petty spite of certain individkluals who have been cut short of the revenues of an illicit liquor business and I be lieve the higher courts will sustain the argument of the liquor- dealers. "It is not the tax money involved that we buck against, but the principle of the thing and I do not believe for an in stant that a court of record will compel the liquor dealers to pay a double license on cigars."

WILLIAM PERRY AlND SMITH CHARGED WITH ROBBERY Arrests Are Made by Detective Murphy and Captain Everts, Who Find Men in a Cabin-May Be the Robbers Who Held Up Donovan March 24. It looks as if the gates of the peniten tlary are yawning for William Perry and Wlllam Smith, now in the county Jail, identified as the men who held up and robbed Thomas Donovan on a lonely road in the outskirts of Butte. They are also believed to be the men who bur glarized the meat market ot damuel Binder & Co. at No. 939 Utah avenue, Monday night. If the men are sent to the penitentiary It will not be the first time their hair has been clipped and they have done the lockstep, for the police say they are both ex-convicts. Perry and Smith are charged with highway robbery, and will probably be tried on that charge. In the event that charge should fall, they will be held and tried for burglary in the night time. The pair were arrested in a cabin north of Caroll's woodyard on East Platinum street last night by Detectives Murphy and Captain Everts. The men were cooking a belated supper when the officers arrived, but no resistance was offered. The cabin was well stocked and it was evident that they had gone into quarters for an indefinite campaign Slith the lead pipe. Held Up Donovan. Shortly after Perry and Smith were taken to the city jail they were identi fled by Donovan as the men who as saulted and robbed him of $20 in cash and a check for $22.29 on the Northern Pacific railroad on the night of March 24 last. When the detectives entered the cabin they found a large supply of meat, lard and several articles of wearing apparel which answered the description of things which had been stolen from the meat market on Utah avenue the night be fore. A revolver and pipe, which was this morning identified as the property of Edward Markwald, an employe of the butcher shop, was also found in the pos session of Perry and Smith. The other property taken from the place was also identified. The robbery of Donovan coupled with the burglary of the butcher shop would Indicate that the pair have no particu lar specialty, but are all-around tough characters from whom society can well be separated, even for an indefinite period. Perry an Ex-Convict. It is known that Perry was recently released from the penitentiary at Deer Lodge and that he met his pal, Smith, at Helena several weeks ago. They met Donovan on the trail coming to Butt' a week ago last Monday and ascertained that he had some money. Donovan tried to separate from the men when he reached Butte, but his new-made friends insisted on showing him the city. To his sorrow he consented and when the ope portunity afforded itself, Donovan was rushed to a convenient place in the dark and given what is known in "crook dom" parlance as the "strongarm," and his money was taken from him. People living in the cabin where Perry and Smith were living noticed the pe culiar actions of the new acqulsitUons to the neighborhood. The men seldom came out in the day time, but they burned the midnight candle, which could be seen through the little window in their hut. The police were notified and last night made the successful capture. REPORT OF CITY TREASURER According to the monthly report of City Treasurer Calkins, which will be filed with the city council tonight, there is a balance of $93,246.22 to the ctedit of the city. The collections for the month of March amounted to $16,,459.59. The city treas urer has issued a call for warrants for June and July of 1901, amounting to about $60,000.

DAVITT. William H. Davitt, republican alderman of the Third ward, is one of the most popular of the men in the fight for places in the city council. He lives at 363 East Broadway and is so esteemed by everybody in the ward that his strength at the polls is likely to run far beyond his party representation in the part of the city where he lives. He was born in St. Paul, Minn., Jauary 1, 1859, and was raised in Scran ton, Pa. The east never proved as congenial to the future alderman as the section of the country where he was born and he came to Butte in 1881 to grow up with the west and establish a home in the state which he believed, and still believes, the best in the union. He is a miner and takes part With enthusiasm and public spirit in the affairs of the community, which affect the welfare of his fellow citizens. His reputation for ability and good judgment is not confined to the people with whom he is employed but extends to every circle where long service and exceptional ability is taken account of. lie will make a splendid alderman and his ward will be ably represented In the council and its interests earnestly cared for when he is chosen at the polls. POLICE COURT WAS CUT SHORT Police court was held an hour earlier, than usual this morning to afford the court officers an opportunity of appear ing in Judge McClern4n's court. The session was a short and modest one. Leo Johnson, colored, who tried to clean out a South Main street restaurant Monday ilght, and was arrested by Po licemen Curley and Lawson, stepped forward and entered a plea of guilty and refrained from comment. He was fined $10. John McAdams, drunk, was as seessed $5. Charles Murphy was inclined to resiat the charge of vagrancy flied against him andl entered U plea of not guilty. He will he given an opportunity at 13:10 o'c.ock tomorowv afternoon to prove that he is an able-bodied citizen and Is willing to work and make an honest living. 1Stlgar Dayton, charged by Hullding lnwipetor Lane with violating the city oriinance in regard to moving a house, aliled to appear.

Mrs. Meynell, the English poetess, spent last week in Chicago, where she delivered two lectures, "A Litorary HIs Lory of the Brontnes," al "'iThe Great Transition In English Poetry." PAINT STRIKE IS STILL ON The strike of paperhangers and paint ers of this city for an increase of 50 cents a day in their wageis Is still on and plromises to remain for some time unless solrlmthing UnII forIoion Lat the present time crops out. Itust evening the master painters held It meeting and dercided to let matters take their course for the present and Isnsslbly longer. They argue that business with them is not any too gKmtd ust now and that In the face of presellnt conditlons people who had been iigurng on having their houses paluted on the outside and paperi d and Jainted within will wall awhile before calling in the' Mervices of workmelnl.

In speaking of the ralt tLer today Charles J. Michatletn of the i4eihaalein. Paint company, said: "We illlnd to maintain the stand we have taken on the proposition. "Before the trouble began we 'mll ployed 23 painters and paperllhangel'rs, and they were all good men, journey men In their profeslson. '"They were perfectly satisfied with the wages they were receiving and l;ladl lno fault whatever to find with their enil ployers. 'But they and journeymen or I he other large shops were in the minority in the union and could do nothing to wards thwarting the decision of the pot luggers who are now at work on con tracts. "The situation in a nutshell is juls this: The disturbitg element in the union Is working right along allld the journeymen are out. "In a few days the latter will see that they are getting the worst of it and then something will drop. We had in our employ one man who had Ibeen with us 21 years, and he is first-class in his work. "Many of our employi's have i'amilies to support, and I do not believe that when they see the pot-luggers pIrosper ing they will stand It. "We emnlploy ablout 40 mein in tili, alld there has never been a payday that the money due them was not paid on tile s pot. Last year we paid out in wages alone over $37,W00, and the bulk of it went to the painters and paperhangers." Cousin Helen had been very sick, but was convalescent. Waking up suddenly and finding a strange lady at her bed side, she asked: "Are you the doctor?" "No, dear," she replied. "I'm your trained nurse." "Oh!" exclaimed Helen, pointing to her cage hanging in the window, "trained nurse! Let me Introduce you to my trained canary."
