#IY HE CAE HIS
VOTE TO VIYEIOR POLITICAL FLIMFLAM J. J. KNOWL TON AND ONE J. K. TOOLE WORK ED ON A CERTAIN SENATOR. .w MR. K. HAS BEEN ITCHING TO GET EVEN FOR WEEKS When the Various Factions of the Dem. mies Entered the Prize Ring in Hel ena, He Saw a Chance to Swing the Solar Plexus to Clark by Turning His Proxy Over to the Enemy. J. J. Knowlton, democratic state central committeeman for Silver Bow county, has returned to the city and is freely talking about the little transaction in Helena whereby Governor Toole became the pos sessor of the right to cast the vote of Silver Bow county. When asked about the deal by an Inter Mountain reporter, Mr. Knowlton replied that he did not care to say anything for publication. "Your friends are commenting upon the fact that you permitted Governor Toole to take your proxy and they say that if you had cast the vote yourself, nothinj would have been thought of it." "That is just the point," replied the for mer alderman of the Eighth ward. "Mr. Clark and those acting with him in con trol of the democratic party, would have been mad at me for voting against their wishes but it would not have hurt them as it did to have Governor Toole act in my place." "Why do you seek to hurt Senator Clark's feelings?" was the next ques tion. "I do not want to talk about the matter at all, but I have a back yard full of Clark gold bricks and I was only wait ing an opportunity to get even. I gave my proxy to Governor Toole because I thought it would annoy the senator more than if I voted myself. Why this is so I do not care to state." The 'b, Pops Out of the Bag. "You were employedl by the senator; are you still working for him?" Mr. Knowlton was asked. "No; I quit and I do not care to again enter his employ." "To be frank with you, Mr. Knowlton, it is common talk that you received a money consideration for your action in Helena last Monday. What have you to say to that?" "I did r.zL receive one cent and every one who knows me knows that I am an honest men and incapable of such action. The fact is that for months I have waited for the opportunity to do something that would at least hurt the feelings of the Clarks and when the opportunity' came I gladly took advantage of it. I am neither sorry nor ashamed of nmy action. "The result of the fight of the demo cratic factions will probably be a repub lican victory and that will not make me ve",. mal Tither. SOCIALISTIC RESOLUTION SPRUNG IN THE CONGRESS -Martin Elliott's Effort to Have the Mining Men Indorse Government Owner ship of Utilities. There was more trouble in the mining congress yesterday afternoon and it all came about through an effort on the part of Martin Elliott to get the congress to indorse a resolution favoring the owner ship of public utilities by the national gov ernment. The resolution was placed in the hands of the committee on resolutions two or three days ago. During the closing hours of the congress the committee reported that it .would not recommend its adoption. The supporters of the measure, who are nearly all Butte men, attempted to turn down the report of the committee by vot ing for its adoption, but failed for want of enough votes to carry the works. The springing of the resolution was such a surprise to some of the members of the congress that J. H. Richards of Idaho made a motion that the congress adopt a socialistic platform. He was jok ing. The fall of the resolution made Elliott warm in the collar and he accused the president of the congress of attempting to gag the delegates.

DODDS' OLD STAND LUCKLESS AUTHOR LACKS PUBLISHER O'BRIEN IS NOW UNABLE TO GET ANYBODY TO PRINT HIS ARTIS TIC EFFUSIONS. EPISTOLARY EFFORTS HAVE BECOME DRUG IN MARKET Convict Is Badly in Need of a Press Agent and So Has the Demand for His Works Declined That He I. Now Syndicating His Novel on "How to Getin the Paper and the Pen." Toni O'Brien is looking for a press agent. Poor Tom has discovered that the fickle public of Montana has lost' interest in his story, and his letters are now on file, unpublished in many of the news paper offices of this section of the country. All of which is extremely discouraging to the copvict. From his latest epist'e it appears that Tom is getting discouraged at the lack of interest being shown in his maneuvers, discovering that it was but a maudlin and cheap sentiment that made his betrayal. of trust momentarily heroic. Of course there is still considerable con jecture regarding the present whereabouts and future actions of Mr. O'Brien. iHe has friends in and around Montana and is able to get his letters in the mail. Many of his communications have been mailed in the street mailing box on West Com mercial street, Anaconda, but others have been mailed at Gregson and Silver Bow, and one of his latest elTuslons bears the postmark of the Butte postoflice. In Butte there is a certain amount of sympathy for O'Brien, as there would be for any man who considers himself in jured, but his denunciation of everybody connected with his case-barring of course the man whose trust he betrayed and who may yet have an opportunity to punish him for that breach-shows that his con finement has warped his judgment. He Is Syndicating Them. O'Brien has sent duplicates of the let ters to several of the newspapers. Is he looking more for the notoriety and cheap prominence which they bring him, or does he write them because he really believes himself injured? In his latest effusions he does not show the same originality of expression and sense of humor that he did in his. earlier editions. Perhaps, like Kipling and many another great man of letters, O'Brien has written himself out. Now he seems to divide his time between hurling invectives at the harshness of fate and watching for a copy of the newspaper to which he had forwarded the effort to see if it has found its way into print. It is evident.from the style and variet of the statlonery which O'Brien rises that he has niore than one friend. It is ex. tremely probable, too, that instead of sit ting bel~ind,.a xocý, wit J.ie. risle in one hand and his pen in the other, many of Mr. O'Brien's letters are written in the quiet of a friend's room, where the view may not be quite as romantic as that which the top of Mount Haggin affords, but where he is safe from the "slings and arrows" of the officers and always sure of a postage stamp. REV. BENJAMIN P. WILSON LECTURES IN AUDITORIUM Socialist Local Leadersi Cooney and Smith Speak From the Same Platform. Rev. Benjamin P. Wilson lectured on socialism in the auditorium last evening. The seats were nearly all taken and those who occupied them were enthusiastic, giv ing the speaker at times the applause to which they considered him entitled. Rev. Wilson's address was preceded by a few remarks from t'. J. Cooney, a Butte candidate for the legislature on the social ist ticket, and Clarence E. Smith, candi date for state senator on the same ticket. Rev. Wilson said that socialists did not advocate the divide up system credited to them, but maintained that the present sys tem of government was wrong and could be cured only by socialistic medicine. He said he had no fight to make on capital or capitalists, but had one coming on the sys tem which permitted the masses to earn a bare existence and allowed the capitalist to rule the earth as if by divine right. HE SWORE AT MIKE DWYER And the Assailant of O'Leary Is in a Measure Justified. In Justice Taylor's court yesterday afternoon Michael Dwyer pleaded guilty to the charge of assaulting Pat O'Leary and was fined $5. The trouble between the two men took place in the Oregon saloon, where O'Leary was acting as night bartender and Dwyer was representing his brother, the owner of the saloon. The justice held that the assault was in a measure justifiable, ow ing to the aggravating language ued by O'Leary. Excursion to California.

Because "Chimmy" Muldoon made~.~ipen fun of the quality of "Snowball" Johnson's hair, the latter, who would pass for one of the monkeys in Ringling Brothers show, got piping mad and the result wae a scrap. This scrap occurred in the alley that runs by police headquarters and there came near being another one when the two youthful offenders stood before his honor Judge Boyle. "It was like dis, yer honor," sail "Chilnmy", whose hair was the color of a bright, new copper penny, and whose physiognomy told plainer than words that he was a believer an the good St. Patrick "de Coon an' me was playin' craps In d' alley an' I axed 'ima as hoom it felt ter have wool growin' out o' hIis noggin all' de Coon gits riled.

Sneak thieves and burglars are again getting in their work around the city and burglaries are of almost nightly occur lence. The burglars seem to have a weak ness for the residences on Dakota street. Last night the house of Mrs. Mary O'Con nor at No. 526 Dakota street was broken into but the burglar took a hasty departure without any stolen property. A short while after a burglar entered the house at No. 719 Dakota street and nrmlde a haul. lie carried away a black overcoat, a dark pair of trousers, a razor and a Ma sonic watch charm set with a moss agate. This morning Special Officer Barney McGillic went to the rooming house of Mabel Ford at No. 307 South Main street and saw a man in bed who answered to the description of the Dakota street bur glar. The man was anything but pre possessing looking and when he spied the officer made a motion as though to draw his gun. McGillic was too quick for the man, however, and in an instant the man was looking into the barrel of the offider's revolver. The man was lodged in jail on sutpi cion. Hie gave his name as Abe MinesdAit refused to tell where he came from. It is believed he is the burglar who, sev eral nights since, broke into and robbed Britton's hardware store on South Main street. He had in his possession a 38-cali bre Smith & Wesson revolver that looks very much like one of those stolen from the store. Raised the Machinists' Pay.

Montn"" DRIN KýT eentennial Beer Strength, Purity, Flavor STANDARD GOLF WANTED What Some of the Golf Authorities Have to Say in Regard to It. The craze for the rubber golf ball, whic.i is as strong in EnIgland as it is in this country, has led to a dcmand on the part of several prominent golfers for the adoption of a standard ball. Mr. Hilton and Mr. Low, two eminent English au thorities, claim that the rubber ball has brought the second-rate man almost to a level with the cracks, and that skill is now at a discount. The editor of a prominent English golf ing paper pronounces strongly against the adoption of a standard ball, making the sensible remark that if any one of the various new balls is much better than the others it will establish itself as the stand ard, in spite of all competition, and no legislation will be able to kill it. One authority has this to say on the subject : "The time is not ripe for the adopting of a standard ball. The rubber core ball is in its infancy. All the inventive facul ties of all the rubber men and dozens of other manufacturers are at work trying to produce a ball better in every respect than any of the rubber core balls in the mar ket. There are 176 patents, applications for patents and caveats filed now, and it is only reasonable to suppose that with the knowledge already gained by a careful study of the ball as used at thq present, some manufacturer will produce a very much better one in the near future. "The solid gutta percha ball is doomed. The new ball produces better results and is far cheaper to the good Ilayer, as it lasts three or four timea as lrng, provided it is not topped, and the quesltio, of price alone would eventually cause it to Ic gcu crally adopted."
