DUVeATON EIf UTTE CHeANUS zN LASt TW.NTY YrAsS. IRVINE'S UNIfloE POSITION He Was Sole Graduate in the Class of 1888 and Was the Valedictorian, Salutatorian and Poo Bah Alumni Has 300 Members. Graduates of the Butte high school will meet tomorrow to discuss plans for the advancement of- the Alumni as sociation. The organization was formed lust January and has for its purpose the bringing together of the 300 young men and women who received their edu cation in the common schools of Butte during the past 16 years, and who have since( that time branched out into the various walks of life-the men to the professions, the offices, and the mines and the women, or at least those of them who have not concluded to join fortunes with some lonely young man to the stores and the many occupaLions which are open to young women of talent and education. School Hae Grown. It was an insignificant looking brick building that stood on the site now occu plied by the Auditorium, but that was twenty years ago and it was Butte's first high school. Two rooms of the building were suffl clent for the dissemination of higher ed ucation in Butte those days and one '.teacher besides the principal, A. C. !Nevill, attended to the dissemination. The enrollment hovered between 26 and 50, and there was one pupil In the first class to graduate in 1886. There was no ,rivalry for the honor of delivering the valedilctory address and W. P. Irvine was F. E. YOUNG, President of B. H. S. A. A. valedictorian, historian, salutatorian, and class prophet. His was the best es .sy of the class; his the very worst. "Over the Alps." While it is not recorded that Mr. Ir vine embraced this golden opportunity to promulgate a new scheme for the manipulation of the universe and show the people in a carefully prepared and scholarly treatise how to snatch suc vess from Despair and whistle Defiance at the Slings and Arrows of Fortune. the fact remains that he had thIe Iloor and as the sole reprepresentative of Mon tana High School graduates it was up to him to talk. Among the graduates of the high school in the early days is F. E. Young, at present with the Butte Water coin pany, beginning with his first spas emodic attack of the alphabet in the Butte schools. In the Old School. "Down near the old quartz mill on Hil ver Bow creek was one of the first school houses in Butte," said he yester day. "It was a little log affair not large enough to turn around in twice but there was a wonderful lot of brain matter brewed in that little school. 1 remember going away out in the country, as it appeared, to attend that school. "Mrs. Wylie was our teacher and E. It. lIowell, now an attorney In tile clly, was the first superintendent. In those days they didn't dignify the position with the name of superintendent. He was principal of the school. I believe that with the addition of two or possllly three other teachere he was able to look out for the education of every child ill the city. "When we canme up town and moved into the brick building which stood alone in the center of the lot on whi h the Auditorium now stands we thought we were putting on metropolitan ahr'." Mr. Young has just been honored by ITls old classmates and by the gradu ates of the school by being elected pres ident of their organization. Present Attendance. Tiutte's magnificent high school of to day with its 500 pupils, its corps of 20 trained teachers and its numerous fa cillties for first-class work, is a long stride from the little brick build ing of twenty years ago. M,,antime snore than 300 graduates have gone out from the school fully equipped with the best education that the public schools of the country can afford. It is a remarkable index of the growth of the city to run over the roll of high school graduates year after year aid note in what strange proportions the numbers increased. In the ear'lier days of the history of the camp, there were comparatively few naclllities. People who came here either had no families or they refrained from tringing them out where there seemed to be so few opportunities for education and training. As conditions became more settled the men who had families In the East be gan to send for them, and In a short time there was a fair 'proportion of school children where a few years before it was a treat to see a child on the streets. Progress in Education. P. W. Irvine was the whole class of the Butte High school of 1886. Two years later there were six who appeared on the records, Miss Cora IE. Young (now Mrs. J. K. Heslet), Miss Mary Nevin (now Mrs. P. S. Sullivan), iiss Mary B, Bishop (now Mrs. Vrancis Corsets at Eastern Prices at SYMONS' The Most Complete of Montana's Corset Stores *B Western women now have all the advantages formerly enjoyed only by their Eastern sisters Stocks here are as large and as well assorted, lines as thoroughly good and as reliable, and prices fully as low as anywhere in the country.

Since that time the number of gradu ates has annually Increased-as m.u'ny' as 56 graduating at one tinr--util lnow there are 313 n,,ames on the roll of the itutte High school alumni. At the suggestion of Professor Leamy, a number of the old pupils of the school met last January and formed the nucleus of what promises to be a large and well instituted organization-The Butte High School Alumni association. The associ ation, though scarcely out of the em bryo, is making arrangements for an entertainment on a rather extensive scale which will take place before very long. A banquet will be given to which all the members of the alumni will be invited. The date and nature of the entertainment will be arranged at a meeting of the association tomorrow. The following are the officers who have recently been elected: President, F. E. Young; vice president, Orville Sa ville: secretary, Miss Sue Baldwin; treasurer, Miss Emma Dunstan. SUSIE HUN MUST LEAVE BUTTE OR GO TO PRIISON Susie Hun, colored, has fallen over an other rough spot in her existence and in all likelihood she will be compelled to Shop many snags from the trail along which she is traveling before reaching the end. The police department claims that Susie is a hold-up, her beat being in the vllnity of Arizona and (lalena streets. She has served several terms in jail for alleged offenses and has been ordered to vacate the city, but she is still here and may conclude to locate at least two or three months. Last night Policemen Sheehan and (Olds found her working her old game in Arizona street and landed her in the city jail, placing against her three charges, one of which was vagrancy. This morning she was arraigned in the police court and allowed to plead guilty to the vagrancy charge. Judge Boyle did not pass sentence upon her, however, but will do so as soon as he gets around to it, which will be some time today. It is understood that he intends to give her a chance to choose between speding three months in jail or leave the city for good-the good of her self and the city. GREEK MEETS GREEK AND ONCE IS THEN ARRESTED When Greek meets Greek it is said there is something doing. A warrant was yesterday issued fob James Gerald, a Greek, by John T. Cit. Izen, the Greek proprietor of a Greek lunch counter at No. 101 East Park street. Citizens claim that while Gerald was in his employ the latter robbed the cash register of $101. Gerald Is charged with grand larceny and was arrested today and is held in default of $100 cash bond. Citizen charges that Gerald took the money from the register April 20, last. Gerald denies the charge and says that he is the loser as a result of his em ployment by Citizen.

Judge Clayberg said with refer(ence tt side lines and end lines: "There have been no decisions by the supreme court of the United States where this condition has been considered with reference to v location made under the act of 1866. I see no reason why such conditions may not arise, and believe the law, as set tied with reference to locations made under the act of 1872, would equally ap ply to locations made and patent-d unl: der the act of 1866." For a good many years after this con dition was presented the law was un settled whether or not any extra-lateral rights attached. It was generaly believed that they did not exist. This belief was based upon two propositions which, It was thought, had been definitely set tled by the supreme court of the United States. They are as follows: First-Any line of loca.tion which was crossed by a vein on its strike or course was an end line for the purpose of de termining extra-lateral rights. Second-End lines must be parallel or no extra-lateral rights exist. The utter impossibility of having the end lines crossed by the vein on its course par allel to each other under these conditions was thought to present the existence of extra-lateral rights. S.HITLE IN .1 WEST THOUSANDS OF EASTERN PEOPLE HAVE FOUND NEW HOMES. FEW HAVE COME TO MONTANA Reports Sent OuL For Them to Keep Away From the State and Smallpox Scare the Cause -ome Ex cursions This Summer.

This was the H ll.'llnt ma de at bolth the Northlern I'Pleliie s11 (rcealt Nortilherl of(ices in this cliy odaly ill lsilpoISe to : query tas to how the excursion schemelll( for the transportation of settlers firon the East to the West carried out by the railroads during the past two mouthl had resulted. Excurslons, which begun two ionth. ego, come to an end tomorrow. After that date no more cxcIurslonl tickets will be sold in the East and the Influx of aset tiers into the Northwestern states will cease. At the Northern Paclfic oflicer It war stated that there has been talk of ex tending the excursions and the low rates through May, but that no extension would he made probably, no notice Ilav ing yet been received. Thie thought of extension resulted from the great sHul cess of the excursions. Thousands of Settlers. "We have run two trains a day, wllh an average of 800 passengers, men, wom en and children, to each train, and you can estimate how many people we have transported," was a statement made att the Northern Pacifll office in roslponse to. a request for figures showing how many people had been moved by the road. From the statement it is easy to pe'r :eive that the road handled somenlthing like 100,000 people. These peoplec were added to the populations of Washing. loll., Oregon, Idaho and Montana. Washington got most of them and Montana the least. "'ow many did Montana get?" was asked. "About one In 100," was the reply "The reports sent out froml here telling people to stay away turned them aside from Montana. The smallpox also scared people." While the trains mentioned were bringing settlers from the East to the Northwestern states named, local trains were transporting thousands of home seekers to North Dakota also. At the Great Northern office no figures were obtainable, but it was stated that the road had brought thousands of ex cursionists looking for homes to this part of the West. That road, like the Northern Pacific, brought settlers from all points in the East. Excursions to California from Mon $4 FULL SETS Upper or ..

Rather than to he bothered further in the motter I paid a $5 fine under protest." Thisn rorning Wielisc was again ar rented for the sametll offense.
