BADGES FOR SALT LAKE MEET Rod Williams Has Received Bunch of Hand some Trophies, To Be Distributed Among Lodges All Over the State. / [SRE'IAL TO INTEIRH hM0tNTAIN.] Anaconda, August 6.-Rod williams, chairman of the committee on badges for the B. P. O. E. pilgrimage to Salt Lake City, received the badges yesterday and Is today busy sending them out to all parts of the stat:. The majority of Elks want a badge whlther they make the trip or tot, and most of those who intend going to Salt Lake have ordered from a half to two dozen badges each. It is customary at the grand lodge meet for every state to have a suitable badge, and many of the boys go with a plentiful supply of them, so they can trade with their brothers from other states. Many interesting col lections are found in this manner. The Montana badge is made of cop per. On a bar are the letter B. P. O. E. with a clock and elk's head. Suspended by a chain from the bar is a round piece of metal larger than a dollar. This bears at the top the words "Mon tana Elks at Salt Lake, Utah, ioos." Below this the heads of a horse, pig, cow and sheep, speak for the stock-raising in dustry, an agricultural scene representirg EXHIBITION RUN MADE BY FIRE DEPARTMENT One Minute and Fifteen Seconds After Alarm is Turned in, Water Is Flow ing and Ladder Is Up. [Isi'r AI. ro I NTIR Mu OtNTAI s.] Anaconda, August 6.-Anaconda is well protected from loss by fire. This fact was demonstrated last night when the depart anent made an exhibition run in remark ably fast time. It was about 5:50 o'clock when Mayor Stephens rang in an alarm from the fire box at the corner of the Montana hotel. Just one minute and fifteen seconds later water was flowing from the end of the hose held by two of the firemen while a scaling ladder was rapidly ascending to wards the roof of the hotel. This quick work was witnessed by several hundreds of citizens. The beauty of the exhibition was the fact that none of the firemen were aware of the fact they were to be called out. It goes to show that Ana conda has one of the best fire departments in the Northwest. MARKIN WAS CAPTURED HERE Desperado Has Escaped From Boise City Pen and May Revisit Anaconda. [srePICI..

Mr. Widi-ams, who has charge of the tuplly at present, says the badges are going fast, but as there is an ample number there will be no danger of running short. It has been predicted by old Elks who supposedly know the ways of the gang at grand lodge meetings that the badge worn by Montana members will he more sought after than any others. As the time grows nearer for the start to Salt I.ake, the preparations of the local Elks who are going are being completdl. In numbers the representation from the Anaconda lodge will not be large, but in quantity it will be of the best and hard to beat from an Elk's standpoint.

NIGHTMARE AMONG THOSE WHO. LOVE THEIR PURPS Dog Poisoner Is Active and Many Costly Pets Are Victims of Wretch's Cowardly Attacks. [ISE(sIAI. tr( I NTrE MQt' NTI IN.] Anaconda, August 6.-Dogs, dogs, dogs. Anaconda has been in a dog nightmare for six months. That may sound funny, but it is not intended to bie anything but true. There was no dogcatcher for a long time and the authorities were miserable for that reason. Now dogs, valuable dogs. are being poisoned-even dogs that have tags and licenses and a reason for being alive. Justice of the Peace Quane has lost his valuable bird dog. The pet ate poisoned meat in an alley. That shows it is foolish to board any place but at the best restaur ants and hotels. Other high licensed and duly tagged dogs of an irreproachable character and whose masters love them have met the same sad fate. The fine for poisoning dogs runs from $-o to $Soo. It is said now that the own ers of licensed purps will be protected at all hazards. All poisoners-who can he discovered--will be given the limit. T'he law will be enforced with strenuosity and stern determination.

ILondon, August 6.-At a meeting of the Anglo-American Telegraph company, the chairman, Francis A. Bevan, said nothing had occurred so far as he knew to alter the opinion of the drrectors that although wireless telegraphy would carry a certain class of telegrams, such as those between ships or between ships and the shore, there was no reason apparent why it would com pete in the class of telegrams sent by cable companies. During a conversation the other day with Lord Kelvin, the latter said to Mr. Bevan: "I have given careful consideration to this subject, and I do not believe the share holders of your company need be alarmed at the prospect of wireless telegraphy."
