VOL XXII NO. 142 WEATHER FORECAST. BUTTE, MONTANA, THURSDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 4, g1902 FAIR WEATHER. PRICE FIVE CENTS PRESIDENT IS ABLE TO SEE RUSSIAN GRAND DUKE Roosevelt's Physician Antic ipates No Serious Results From the Accident. SECRETARY CORTELYOU MUCH IMPROV.ED TODAY Responsibility for the Disaster Is Now Being Sifted and Pittsfield Council Will See That the Guilty Are Properly Punished-President Takes a Drive and After Sleeping Until 10 O'clock This Morning Is as Fresh as Ever. [tY ASOCIATKD PRESS.l Oyster Bay, Sept. 4.-Dr. Lung, Roose velt's physician, said today that he an ticipated no serious results to the president from yesterday's accident. The -president left word that he desired not to be dis turbed until about so o'clock this morn ing. He was much better this morning. He took a drive today before.receiving'Grand Duke Boris and party, who will be his guests all day today. The duke arrived from Newport in Ogden Mills yacht, ac companied by Count Cassini, the Russian ambassador and three members of his suite, also by Ogden Mills and Assistant Secretary of State Pierce. The president will leave tomorrow on the Sylph, starting on his southern trip. Secretary Cortelyou, who passed last night at his summer home at Hempstead, is reported to be much better this morn ing. He will accompany the president on his southern trip. President Roosevelt is receiving a large number of telegrams, cable messages of congratulation on his escape from serious injury in the acci dent of yesterday. After Street Car Men. Pittsfield, Mass., Sept. 4.-\Vith the ex citement following the accident to the president yesterday, in a great measure abated, the citizens were discussing the question of the responsibility for the oc currence. It is argued that the Pittsfield Street Railway company should not have disregarded the request of the mayor that no cars should have been run while the president was in the city. At a meeting of investigation last night this question was approached by both branches of the city government. The common council also appointed a commit tee on investigation of the speed of cars in general and report concerning how it may be regulated. At the House of Mercy it was stated that the condition of D. J. Pratt, driven of the pre.ident's carriage, was satisfac tory. Less interest than was generally ex pected was shown in the appearance be fore the district court today in the case of Motorman Euclid Madden and Conduc tor James Kelly, who had charge of the nor thkl f.-~nt, ih. nr.r:,l~l.,.. ný ...,. Trial Postponed. Not more than So persons were present. The case was not even called and after a conference between counsel for the street railway men and the court, it was agreed to postpone the matter for two weeks. Bail of $5,000 for Madden and $2,5oo for Kelly was continued. The presidin: judge was Joseph Tucker, president of the street railway company. Had a hear ing been had, he probably would have been given place to an associate. It is said two weeks hence, another post ponement will be granted and the prelim inaries and action by the grand jury if the case should come before it will take so much time that actual trial will not be reached before January. The funeral arrangements ot William Craig, the pres. ident's guard who was killed yesterday, have not been completed. Congratulations Over His Escape. Washington, Sept. 4.-Messages of con gratulation over the escape of the president in the accident yesterday have begun to come to the state department from abroad.

CHANGES IN NAME BEFORE CONGRESS "INTERNATIONAL MINING ASSOCIA TION" SOUNDS TOO MUCH LIKE A COMMERCIAL BODY. INCORPORATION PLANNED AT THE MORNING SESSION Resolution for More Solid Organization Introduced-Number of Committees Are Proposed and Changes in the Fees and Classes of Membership Ad vocated-Body Needs Strengthening. In the deliberations of the International Mining Congress toda;y tihe qucstion of changing the name of the body from "In ternatlonal Mining Congress" to "Ameri can Mining Association" was debated, but at the time of adjournment it had not been disposed of in a manner satisfactory to the delegates. Consequently, the discussion will be resumed in the Auditorium of the public library this evening, at which place the congress will hold, its session because the Broadway theater will be in use. The session will be called to order at 8 o'clock. Besides a change in name the resoilutin provides for the incorporation of the body, the election of a president, three vice pres idents, secretary, treasurer and an exc cutive committee comprising the officers and one member of the body from each state in the union; also, the following committees: Five members on legislative work, seven members on membership. five on transportation, five on finance and five on program, to the latter of which all of the papers to be rea;d before the meetings of the congress are to be submitted an.1 their fitness for presentation to the dele gates passed tupon. What They Will Pay. The proposed memlbership fee is to be $5 for active members and $S for associate members. and annual dues of $2 for the former. It also provides for a bond of $5,ooo from the treasurer. Taking it for granted that all of the del egates In this particular instance are vested with congressional honors, Con gressman .McGuire of Utah asked for an explanation of the object of the proposed change, and it was accorded him by Joseph A. Holmes of St. Louis. Mr. Ilolnes de clared that it was solely for the purpose of strengthening the body and giving it a prominence and solidity which at present it did not possess. If there was an ul terior motive in the proposed change, it was not manifest in anything which Mr. llolmes slid. J, P. Ilendricks of Illinois suggested an amendment to the resolution. lIe ex pressed the belief that if the name was changed as suggeste\d in the resolution, the body would lose too much of its identity, and asked that the word "con gress" be substituted for the word of "association." Is Not a Commercial Association. Eben W. Martin, chairman of the Black IIills' delegation, took a view similar to tha;t of Mr. Hendricks. Ile said the word "association" carried with it a suggestion of something commercial, while "con gress" partook more the nature of legisla tive and deliberative methodsi. Secretary Mahon spoke against the pro posed change of name and incorporation, saying among other things that an attempt had been made at the Milwaukee meeting to accomplish a similar object and at that time it was fought to a finish, the result being a compromise between the opposing forces. The debate on the question this evening promises to be interesting, as several of the delegates have been "wising up" this afternoon and will burst forth in all of their eloquence when the president presses the button.

COUNTY DADS WILL NOT ALLOW CLAIMS CITY OF BUTTE WILL HAVE TO GO TO LAW TO GET THAT $5,630 FOR BACK TAXES. City Attorney Edwin M. T.amb today filed an appeal to thie district court from an order of the (ounlty .coniliisioners, dis allowing a claim of the city of Butte for a pro rata of penalties and inteicest col lected by the counlty treasurer jointly upon the city and county taxes for the years 1889 to 19ol inclusive, amounting in all to $5,630. In disallowing the bill Chairman Clark of the county commissioners gave the fol lowing reasons: "First, that his decision was in ac cordance with ati opinion of the attornety .enlral stating in effect that all for feitures, files anll penalties incurred by a violation of section 4!115. of the political code, should be ipaid into the general fund of the county for the use of the county. "Second, that the hdcisiont was in ac cordance with a letter from the state ex amilner to the same effect. "Third, that the bill as presented is wrong, as the phircentage is figured away above what it reftlly is." At the samte time, with the appeal, the city. attorney filed a bond for $300. signed by I'.
