First Four Months Shows More Instru
ments Filed Than for Some Years
Cancellations, Howevek, Have
Nearly Equalized Filings.
Mortgagen are regarded as an Indica
tion of bad times to many people. In the
farming states, when mortgages are nu
merous on the farms, it Is generally re
garded as Indicative of an unprosperous
condition of affairs, and the opinion is
well founded according to the industrial
and social economists.
Whether the same rule applies to a
mining region or not is not so clear, al
though In all probability a similar prin
cipal underlies the condition of affairs in
both places.
In Butte the mortgage Is a lively thstl
tution, judging from the number of
mortgages placed upon property hitre in
a year. An inspection of the mortgage
books In the county clerk's office reveals
the fact.
In 1901 there were 897 real mortgages
filed and recorded in County Clerk West
on's office. The number of chattel
mortgages and liens falls short of those
figures, but It was quite respectable, too
Interesting Figures.
It will be seen by this that during 1901
about 75 mortgages were placed upon the
real property of Butte every month in
the year. That seems to be a pretty stiff
record, but considering the population
and the value and extent of the real
property in the county it is not remark
The number of mortgages placed on
real estate in 1900 was less than the num
ber in 1901. The number given by the
mortgage books was 678. The avernge
filed and recorded every month of that
year was something over 50.
The year of 1902 starts out with a rec
ord that has kept about a neck ahead of
1900 so far. During the four months just
completed this year 256 real mortgages
were recorded and Indexedtl In the county
recorder's office. This is an average oi
64 a month.
The cancellation of mortgages does not
keep up with the filing of them, which
Is quite natural, considering that some
of them drag along for years on the
books. Still a gerat many more mortg
ages are cancelled every year than would
be supposed.
Many Cancellations.
The county recorder's books show that
Ih 1901 the number of real and chntt,.l
niortgages and liens cancelled rceachedj
the respective figures of 868. In that
years 67 were cancelled in January, 81 Ir
February, 47 In March, 69 In April, 71 in
May, 72 In June, 78 In July. 87 In August,
7.3 In September, 95 in October, 79 in No
vember and 56 In December.
In 1900 there were only 7066 cancelled,
There were 76 In January, 84 in Febru
ary, 97 In March, 42 in April, 74 In May,
100 in June, 51 In July, 59 In August, 65
In September, 88 In October, 73 in No
vember and 57 In December.
IHealth Ofer Sullivan presented to
rthe city council today his annual report
showing among other things the num
ber of deaths in the city during the year
just closed. The report shows that 805
persons died in the county. Of that
number 451 died within the limits of
the city. OlGving the city an estimated
population of 40,000 persons, the death
rate of Butte during the year covered
by the report was 11.27 per 1,000, which
shows Bittto to be a pretty healthy city.
The combined statistics of 10 principal
cities of the United States for the year
1900 showed an average mortality of
17.75 per 1,000. Portland, Ore., famed for
dta healthfulness, had a mortality last
year of 11.43 per thousand. The Butte
death rate was only 11.27 per thou
sand, which, although higher than the
average for the entire country, shows
Butte to be one of the most healthful lo
callt'es in the United States.
Of those who died 512 were malee.
There were 73 stillborn, eig'ht darkeys
and seven Chinese. The death rate by
months was as follows: May, 67; June,
63; July 02; August, 91; September, 77;
October, 78; November, 62; December,
'59; January, 6t;; February, 51; March, 61;
April, 68.
Tllhero were during the year 405 births
of males and 385 females. Total, 830.
The causes of death were: Pneumonia,
100; heart disease, 61; I3rlght's disease,
43: cancer, 15; cerebral diseases, 34;
typhoid fever, 14; tuberculosis, 45; sui

shock, 11; murder, 8; unknown, 28;

cases, 313 being males. Scarlet fever
cases numbered 858, smallpox 71 and
dipDhtherla 138. There were 523 houses
quarantined and 1,530 rooms fumigated.
'There were also 4,287 sanitary inspec
tinons, 1,426 written notices served, 521

Indicates That Real Estate Owners,
While Frequently in Need of Cash,
Have No Det. e to Dispose of
Their Realty Holdings.
Filver flow county can chlim to be In
a prosjperous condition, if the number of
mortgagest allowed to be foreeltused by
the ownel'rs of real estate int the cotlnty)
during the year of 1901 is any criterion
of prosperlity and adversity in a comln
monwealth of this kind.
In the year 1:101 there were only 21
lntrn'ttTages foreclosed in the c'ourts of
Silver lowI county.
Considering 700 or 800 morigages filed
und retorded in Silver hlow county In
lile 12 mlonths, this is an Iastottlshilag
condition of itffalrs, and shows that the
wner.s of real estate, while frequently
induced by the need or desire for ready
money int ctonsitderable amiotlitts to nIIort
gage their real property, alre seldom

No sucth cotllllition exilts in Hutte. No.

his mining claim surfalce, or his acre

iand few are obliged to do so after th'ey

..Last Days in the Old Store..
Just about ready to move. Next week will witness the reward of this concern's ener
gy and enterprise in its occupancy of the largest quarters for the sale of dry goods in the
state. Old store in a rather chaotic condition right now; carpenters, brick masons, plumb
ers and mechanics in kindred lines making a great deal of noise and considerable dust
and confusing the smooth course of business generally. Manage
ment asks the consideration of patrons during coming week for im
paired service and promises great attractions when big store opens.

Where Women Vote.
"T1he coutrageous :,e1, ;and women whl .
catmle Into the Wes;t and hav\e buildlh ed so
noble an emplire were the Ilowerst of the
Euast," said it well-klown Ituti.i wourItn
today, "In the hard struggles of thei
past these same men and women stood
shoulder to shoulder, each helping tha
other to bear the trials and vlcissitudes
ever present in the life of the pioneer.
Out of that experience sprang the recog.
nition of woman's worth to civilization.
"Four of the Northwestern states.
Utah, Idaho, Colorado, and Wyoming
have granted to women the right to vote
on all questions. In not one of these
states has it ever been suggested that
the political conditions existing at pres
ent would be improved by taking the
franchise away from women. 'The
proof of the pudding is in the eating,' so
said the cook. Four states have tried
woman's Influence In politics and are
satisfied with results."
