RESULT OF OFFICIAL'S VISIT TO
SILVER BOW DEPARTMENTS
THE PAST WEEK.
FINDS EVERYTHING IN
THE BEST OF CONDITION
Commends Heads of Departments in
This County for Efficiency and Says
Their Work Could Not Be Better
But He Is Not Pleased With Delin
quents Who Owe Taxes.
Chairman W. D. Clark of the board of
county commissioners received from W.
Hudnall, state examiner, this morning the
latter's report of examination of offices
and official mliters in Silver Bow county,
made during his visit this week.
Mr. Hudnall is not in the habit of pass.
Ing out any floral tributes to county offi
cers, so it is a little more than gratifying
to the officials of Silver Bow county to
learn that the state examiner is pleased
to compliment them upon the work of the
various offices and to put his complimentq
ina old type. Particularly the offices of
jhlerýc of the court and of the clerk and
'ecorde are commended for their efficient
, VolY wing his recommendation to the
co.tmussioners, the examiner urges
stringent methods in the collection of
licenses for delinquents. It 's evident that
tMr. Hudnall is after the men who won't
pay their licenses with a sharp stick and is
going to see that the county and state get
what is coming to them at the same time,
assuring those who do pay their licenses
that they will be protected from the unjust
competition of the delinquents.

lowing financial reports of the various of

Commends the Board.
In the following language the state ex
aminer commends the work of Silver Bow
"The clerical work in these offices was
up to date and had been well done. In
the office of the clerk of the district court,
several improvements have been made.
The clerk and recorder's office is in excel
lent shape, presenting a commendable
contrast with what existed at my examina
tion a year ago."
Referring to the licenses, the examiner
soys: "Diligent efforts to collect licenses
have been made by the treasurer's office
and the receipts have increased, but other
departments have not properly supported
the treasurer. As a result, there is a large
amount due from delinquents. Some of
this, which might have been saved by
timely prosecution, is lost. The county
detective should ascertain who is In busi
ness without a license and report same to
treasurer, but neither he nor the treasurer
can make numerous calls for collections.
A notice by mnlail ought to be sufficient.
Those who fail to pay should be reported
by the treasurer to your board and the
county attorney, who under section 4450
is charged with the prosecution of such
"The method adopted in other counties,
and whichd recommend to your board, Is
a notice in thle newspapers, that all per
sons whose licenses are in arrears after
a specified date, will be prosecuted by thle
county attorney. This does not mean pub
lication of delinquent's name.
"All who do business must pay. The
law makes no exceptions and neither the
commissioners nor the county attorney has
authority to do so."
Must Name Fatal Day.
The examiner then suggests that the
board name a day. September 20, as a date
on or before which (lelilnquents must pay,
and after which the county attorney mulst
prosecute all who violate the law.
"The county and state," says thle ex
aminer, "are entitled to prompt pIayment
and justice to those citizens who pay, de
snands that all who compete with them be
compelled to pay.
"In my last report I referred to over
$5,ooo received from delinquent tax col
lections and placed in the general fund,
thus depriving state and school funds of
their portion. Under section 4oI05, the
state does not appear to be entitled to any
part of the penalty and interest in above,
but only to its a2 mills of tax, and as
your county has refunded taxpayers more
than the state's portion of the above with
out payment from the state, it is satisfac
tory to let one offset the other. In the
future, however, correct accounting re
quires a distribution to the proper funds
of'money received from tax sales and ad
justing with refunds the state auditor.
"The license case against the late Sen
ator Thomas Courtney has, through ef
forts of the attorney general's office been
advanced on the supreme court calendar
and will come to trial next term."
In concluding, the examiner thanks the
board of commissioners for numerous
eourtesies extended during examination.
HOW "RED JUNIOR" IS
BOSS OF THE WORKS

After delivering himself of this speech,
Tommy Johnston, alias "Red Junior,"

lighted his cigar which a nearby gutter
had furnished him.
"Yer see, its dis way, Mister," contitn

buys a newspaper in Butte, "I started ter

COLOMBIA WILL SOON LET US

MAY DIG THAT DITCH.
[1.i ASSocIAI:ED PRESS.]
Washington, August 29.-An important
communication relating to the Panama
Canal treaty has been received by Mr.
Concha, the Colombian minister at Wash
ington. The oflicials at Bogota have in
formed the minister that special instruc
tions to govern the wply which Colombia
will make to the modifications in the treaty
proposed by Secretary ilay will reach
Washington by September 15.
The officials of the Colombian legation
anticipated the government at Bogota to
some extent and have set about the task
of framing a reply which to the best of
their knowledge will embody the views of
the home government.
As already stated, the modifications
which were suggested by Mr. Hay, met
general approval in Colombia, but there
are a number of changes which the Co
lombian government desires to make be
fore the treaty is signed.
CUBAN PRESS IS BITTER
IN OPPOSITION TO HIM
President Palms Has Lost the Support
of All the Native Organs-Thought
to Favor the Spaniards.
Isv- AsSO(IArenI) I'ess.]
Havana, August z2.--l'resident Palma
finds himself today without the support of
a single newspaper controlled by Cubans.
The editorials ,published in the Cuban
press are, considered collectively, remark
able for their bitterness and outspoken
opposition to th i chief executive. The
only parer":wl1i supports the president is
the Diaro del ;a Marina, formerly the or
gan of, the lptuish government and at
present utpporting the Spanish colony :n
One of the principal causes for the op
position for Palma seems to arise from
the fact that he granted the Castaneda
concession for the establishment of an
electric light plant at Havana.
This concession has been a subject of
bitter discussion in the house of represen
attives and sonic of the members are talk
ing of President Palma's impeachment un
less the concession is rescinded. The
impeachment matter has been upon the
table for the past week. Both houses of
congress have become badly disorganized
over this question and the result has been
a strong anti-Palma feeling.

The other boy was trembling. He knew
that "Red" wanted to show "de gent" an
example of his supremacy and he didn't,
dare refuse to obey. He did as he was
told and a cuff or two from "Red" has
tened the job to completion.
"Now yer sees dat I'se chief o' de

the basis for his selling scheme and the

The crutch is a poor substitute for legs, and affords a very
inconvenient and tiresome mode of locomotion - there is no more
pathetic sight than a person slowly and painfully moving along the
street supported by these artificial limbs.
When Rheumatism settlek in the bones and muscles of the legs,
it is safe to predict that the victim will eventually become helpless
and crutch-bound. The corrosive irritating matter that is deposited
in the joints and muscles causes the most intense pain, the knees and
ankles swell, and when the natural oils and fluids that lubricate
these parts are completely destroyed the joints become locked and
the muscles drawn and stiff, and crutches a necessity.
The acid poisons that produce rheumatic pains form in the blood, and are
distributed through the system, and lodge the system, and lodged in the arms, shoulders, hands,
back or feet, and other parts of the body--resulting often in total dis
ability. A permanent cure of Rheuntatismi can he effected only by a complete
cleansing of the blood, and no other remedy so surely accomuplishes this as
S. S. S. It neutralizes the acid effects, purifies and
invigorates the stagnant blood, and the gritty cotr
rupt particles are washed out or dislodged by the
new rich blood, and relief comnies to the pain-racked I,
sufferer. S. S. S. leaves no mnorbid, irritating matter
in the blood to reunite and produce another attack, but expels every atom
of it front the system. S. S. S. is a purely vegetable remedy, and does not
impair the digestion or generul health like alkali or plotash remedicis.
Write for our special free book op Rheumatism., and if any medical
advice or other information is wanted, our physicians will gladly furnish
it without charge. THE SWIFT SPECIFIC CO., ATLANTA, GA.
