NtILL 6ILLES IlDS SUDDENLY AITI[R RECOVERY SEEMS ASSURED Neill (Glles, who was scalded last Wednesday while working in the Farrel shaft No. 2, died this morning at 5 o'clock at the St. James hospital. Gilles was born of Scotch parents in the IBruce mining district in Canada, and was 34 years old at the time of his death. Four years ago 'he moved to Butte from the copper country in Michi gan, and since that time has worked for * NEILL GIL.lES, Who died this morning front inf. juries received in a mine accident, his brother, Donald (llles, at the Farrel mine. He was a young fnan of sober habits, industrious and invariably bright and cheerful. Even after being removed to the hospital, where he suffered excrucia ting pain from his injuries, he did not murmur and it was partly due to this fact that his friends underestimated the extent of his injuries; the physician who attended him was hopeful of his recov ery to the last. The accident which resulted in Gilles' death occurred last Wednesday after noon at 'the Farrel shaft No. 2. A water pipe in the shaft carrying a pressure of 300 pounds, burst. The water rushing out upon the steam pipe nearby caused the shaft to become filled with steam and scalding water, and William Will iams, Neill lllies and ILicard Trythall, who were standing near, were all more or less scalded. Suffering Was Severe. Williams died a few minutes after t'he accident, but Gilles and Trythall were removed to the St. James hospital, where Gilles linge'ed until this morning, suffering untold agony. He was terribly scalded about the arms, back and shoulders. Jake (lilles, a brother of the dead man, was at the mine at the time of the acci dent. Said he this morning: "We hardly expected Neill to die after living nearly four days. He bore his sufferings so patiently that it was hard to tell muc'h about his condition. "I was on top at the Farrel shaft when the pipe burst. A moment later Matt Oles, a miner, brought Trythall up in the cage. I started to jump on the cage to go back and assist him, but he called to me to take care of Trythall and he returned alone. "I want it known that Oles acted the part of a hero, for he took his life in his hands when he returned in all that steam, for my brother and the body of Williams. Oles never flinched from his task, however, but. facead.the danger in the most heroic manher. Wif9 and Chi 4ying. i4eill Gillei lea. . nd one child living at No. 731 , ast Park street.

BUITTE ELKS TO DO THINGS Elks of Butte have long been In love with Frederick Wards. He has graced their lodge room with his genial pres ence many a t-tme and has been cheered with enthusiasm unaffected and sincere when he rndo his happy hits of speech, recitation or casual talk. Tonight Butte Elks will reach a cli miax in the effort to show Wardo what .a good fellow they. bollove him to be. There will be an entertainment in the lodge room at the end of the perform ance at the theater. Something will be doing when Warda takes the chair and taps with the presld lag officer's gavel which he handles so well. Speeches and songs will enliven the glad hours and the guest will be metaphorically patted on the back and told to feel at home. Carousing is no part of the good creed which Butte Elks observe. There are brighter visions that can be caught in sparkling wine and sweeter music than the tinkle of a glass when Warde is in Butte and good cheer abounds in the Elks' lodge room. Tonight there will he several surprises. The unexpected will happen. It will be a red letter night in the antlered circles of the town.
