MAURICE MAHONEY LETS ANGRY PASSIONS RISE Police Judge Boyle Is Told by the Trio of the Cause of Trouble and the Mon golian Wonders Why the Course of True Love Run So Rough-Another Pleasant Alley Romance. When police court convened at to o'clock this morning Judge Boyle was confronted with a brawny Irishman, a badly bruised Chinaaman and a negress, whose lips would have done justice to two thick layers of a raw porterhouse steak. All three involved in an altercation last night in one of the resorts in Pleas ant Alley and from the appearance of things the celestial had borne the brunt of the quarrel. "Quong Lee. I will get you to give your version of the affair first," said Judge Boyle, "as you seem to have been made the QUONG Who Told His Troubles in Police Court This Morning. recipient of a good many caresses from homebody. Can you tell the court who caressed you?" Quong was evidently a good-natured Mongolian as he wore a broad smile in spite of the fact that his physiogomny was cut and hadly bruised. "Me well 'quainted wid Millie Benson," explained he, pointing to the dusky ama zon who sat glaring at Maurice Mahoney, the Irir Ilhman. "Me went to her place in Pleasant Alley las' inight. he sat talkin' to her an' dis Melican man (pointing to Mahoney) come in. "lIe tell Quong get out. Me no get out cause mIec get there first. Melican man hit Quon.: and kick him out house. All me know." Miss Benson. During Quong's recital of his troublles everybody in the court room was laughing, but there was a half-suppressed roar of merriment when Millie Benson took the stand to tell her story of tile fracas. 'Jedge Bile," said Millie, speaking with a broad accent which smacked of 'Ole Virginy,' "dat Irishman settin' over thar come to my house in Pleasant Alley las' night and raised a whole peck o' trouble. lMe an' Quong was jes a-settin' thar in my room a talkin' and not a harmin' no OFFICER GOES TO GUAM / DR.

Littlefield received a telegram from Secretary of the Navy Moody detaching Surgeon P. R. Cran dall from the recruiting service and or dering him, on the arrival of his relief, to proceed to San Francisco and take the United States transport which leaves Junle a for the island of Guam.

C Montana's Great Tribute to Symons Excursionists from every part of the state arrived by hundreds and paid their respects to the Northwest's representative business concern. Every visitor marveled at the immensity of the establishment; satisfaction was general throughout; the store's receipts passed the best previous records, and altogether the first day of Symons' excursion was a grand success. ALL BUTTE CAME ALSO, and the Greater Symons store, with its immense floor space, its broad aisles and its multitude of employes seemed, for a while during the afternoon, to be almost too small to ac commodate the vast crowds of residents and strangers that poured through the doors. It was a glorious day for the house of Symons; a fitting reward of four and a half years of persistent efforts for the betterment of Montana's merchandise market; the greatest triumph in Symons' history of remarkable achievements. the Silk and Dress Goods Stores and Their Splendid Offerings v " " " $1.25 Silk Grena- $1.25 Black Peau de dines 89c Sole $,.oo 44-inch all silk black grena- The highest qpility of black dines, in pretty satin stripes peau de swo, quite licavy in and rich brocaded designsl; weight; one tof the IHst, most material quite in accord with popular bla:ik mlmterials of the dictates of fashion; half the year; valh. a dozent pIatterns shown; $1.25 yard. l'rice.. $1.00 value $i.25 a yard.

All this time Mahoney had sat apart from Millie and Quong as though he did not wish to become contaminated. Occa sionally he would scowl at Quong, and at such times the little Chinanman's knees fairly knocked together. Not so with the irrepressible Millie. She returned the contemptuous glances of her Celtic neighbor with interest, and now and then she would turn tup her short nose at him and put out her thick lips. "Well, yer honor," said Maurice in reply to Judge Boyle's query, Oi'll tell yez the truth loike a believer in St. Patrick knows how to tell the same, and not loike a hathen Chinee or a lyin' nagur. "Last night Oi happened into the house phere a frind of moine used to live. 01 found this nagur wench and this gimlet eyed Chinee a-settin' there holdin' hands an' talkin' love, and Oi admit to ycr honor thot the sight of thinm did me heart no good. "Whin Oi asked the nagur about me white girrul frind, she gits huffy, she did. About that toime me good Irish blood gits up an' Oi takes thot knock-kneed Chineece by the car an' gives him a piece o' me moind." White Wings. "Is that all you gave him, Maurice?" asked Judge Iloyle, with a merry twinkle in his eye and a glance at the battered features of the Celestial. "To tell ye the truth, yer honor," replied the son of Erin, "Oi might have used him a little wid nme fist, but )i was so mad ot the toime thot I disremember." "Well, Maurice, as you don't deny th:at you struck Quong, and as all the evidence goes to show that you did, Y will have to fine you in the sum of $1o and costs." Maurice paid the fine il good hzumor, Quong's smile grew broader, and Millie left the courtroom humming "I'd ruther be a nigger dan a po' white mnan." IGNORE TEAMSTERS' STRIKE Business Men's Association Is Not to Interfere in the Present Difficulty. At a meeting of the Business Men's as sociation last night J. I. Rickards, pres ident of the association, called the atten tion of the nmciniers to the various phases of the teamsters' strike and related the gist of a talk a contractor had made to him a day or two ago. He said the con tractor had suggested that the lBusiness Mien's association interest itself iin the strike and endeavor to britng about a set tlement of the trouble. Mr. Riclkard.s said he could not see how the Ilusiniess Meu's association could do anything. The association desires to build up its zneznh)crship and increase interest in it. The matter was discussed. Each melmbier thought that more interest should be shlown, but no one ventured a suggestion as to how it could be worked up. J. E. Rickards, chairman of the execu tive committee that has charge of the work in connection with the coming Intn ing congress, announced the appointmllent of J, T. O'Brien as secretary of the coin mnittee. lie reported that progress was being made and that mining men through out the country were interested in the congress. iHe predicted that the meeting would be largely attended by men from all parts of the country, especially the mining districts. 10,000 Shares Vermillion Placer Mining company's stock for sale.
