RAISE IT RIGHT THEY UPLIFT THE HEREAFTER FOR DEMOCRATS UPON THEIR RESERVATION. AGENT MONTEATH HAS TO MAKE TRACKS FOR LIFE Refused to Allow Them to Dance and They Threaten to Do a Few Fancy Steps Upon His Bloody Body, Which, of Course, Is Not to the Liking of Mr. Monteath, Who Decamps. James 1H. Monteath of Butte, who has been performing the duties of agent at the Piegan Indian agency during the last three years, is in danger at agency headquarters, if reports front there are to be relied upon. Mr. Monteath was a resident of Butte more than 20 years, and has hundreds of fri'nds here waho would hIe pained to hear of anything haplening to hint. From information obtainable it seems that the Assinniboine and I'iegan Indians have been in the habit of visiting each other. Last week some of the Assinni hoities from Fort Belknap went up to visit th Piegans, and White Calf, chief of the Piegans. asked Major Monteath for per mission to give a dance, a request which the agent refused. Words followed :and resulted in the agent ordering the lintian pouce to arrest White Calf and take hint to tile reservation jail. Three policemen then walked up to the major a desk and deposited thereon their cartridge belts, guns, holsters and badges, saying they would not arrest White Calf and would quit the service. The Hatchet Unearthed. While all of this was transpiring the pews was flying in all directions. It soon reached the traders' stores, where there were a lot of Indmans, who rushed into thle agent's quarters with all sorts of blood in their eyes. Little Dog, war chief of the tribe and a bad man when aroused, forced his way through the crowd and took a position near the major's desk, talking while lie crowded as if lie meant business. "What is Little Dog saying ?" asked Major Mo>nteath of his interpreter, who stood near. "lie says that if you '.are to arrest W'hite Calf his peopl'oe will bind you with ropes and throw you in front of the next passing train." Then White Calf had something to say. Raising himself to his full height, he ex claimed: "Yes; and since your policemen will not arrest me, why not do so yourself? Comne here and do it. I stand waiting." Little Dog's Little Say. "To this I will add said Little Dog: "These Assinniboines treat us well when we visit them, and now that they have conime to visit us we are going to do what we can for them. 'The dance will be held; I am going to give it in my place whether you like it or not." As the Indians were greatly excited and growing worse every minute the agent and his men withdrew from the scene as soon as possible and the agent at once sent a message to Fort Assinniboine for troops. It was'the intention to take up at once the Indians' ration tickets, except those held by the lame and blind, but on the advice of the interpreter, who understood the nature of the red meni pretty well, it was not done at that time. The rations were issued as usual, and had it not been done it is the belief of the agency men that the store, agency and other buildinlgs would have been wrecked and the agent and the others killed. Can You Blame Them? Saturday, a week ago, which was several days after the disturbance, the tickets were taken up on advices fromi Washington, and excitement and dissatisfaction among the Indians again prevailed. As a result of the troulle things are looking pretty bad for the l'iegans, for w ithout their r:tion tickets they must etrner steal or starve. An effort was made to get them to lease some of their land to a cattle syndicate, but the visiting Crows told them nct to do it, as they had soime experience in that line and got the worst of it by reason of the fact that the cattle men stole the majority of the mavericks belonging to themi, the Indians. The l'ic gans say they will profit by the experience of the Crows, and not let go of an acre of their ground.

MOVEMENT INTENDED TO BETTER CONDITIONS In Every State Women Constantly Be fore the Legislatures Asking for Needed Reforms in the Laws Per taining to Women and Children What Mrs. Catt Has to Say. Tonight at thie office of Mrs. Ella Knowles IIaskell, Silver Bow block, will be held a meeting of the Butte Suff'ragist clutb. At this meeting several important things will be considered relating to the arrangements and programn for the State Suffrage convention which will meet in this city next Wednesday and Thursday, September 17 and 18. There will also come tllu for consideration an outline plan for carrying on the campaign in behalf of equal suffrage in this state. It seems no longer a question as to whether women will go into politics--it is rather one of how they will go into them. Int every state inl tile union womelln are constantly before the legislatures asking for needed reform in the laws pertaining to womlen and children, they are in countless in stalnces the power behind all political movements for tile betterinig of conditions for humanity, so they are in politics only in the shadow, but this being repugnant to high, true natures women demand that they be recognized as citizens, that they may work openly and with the force that lies in the ballot. In discussing the question today Mrs. Haskell explained her well-known views anil concluded: "This is the reason for the calling of this state convention to meet in Butte where the men and women of the state may come together in council to devise the best methods to carry on the educa tion of the people in such manner as to overcome the objections which seetm all in all to the lessening minority." Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt, the presi dent of the national association in an in terview regarding this subject of objec tions, said: "The very same objection which for malny centuries denied women property or right of wages, which offered neither opportunity or encouragemlents and op posed the opening of new industry to the woman wage earner is still objecting to giving women the ballot. And what is this objection? An instinctive fear that individual liberty for women will disar range that time-honored scheme, once though Divine, and defined by Black stone, 'The husband and wife are one and that one is the husband.'

He thought for her and acted for her in every capacity possible. Time has destroyed- the old-time 'one ness,' now the wife manages her own af fairs and sometimes does her own think ing; but, as a relic of ancient custom, the husband votes for her. He does not do this because he or any one else supposes for a moment tuat he really represents her. He votes his own opinions, while hers go unrecorded. Man is usually quick and willing to admit that this condition is neither logical or just. But the average man who still opposes giving the suffrage to women stands frightened before this act of simplle justice. lie is like a dis tinguished congressman who admitted the other day that he was convinced the argu ments for woman suffrage could not be answered, yet confessed that he quaked in his shoes in dread of the necessity of rearranging his ideals when it comes to pass. "It is man, liberty-loving, progressive, fearless, who advocates woman suffrage. It is man, creed and tradition bound, timid, frightened, who opposes it."
