President Roosevelt will not come to Butte for the present, at least. While this does not come in the way of official news, it is true nevertheless and the peo ple of Butte who had expected to give the nation's chief executive a royal wel come, will regret to hear that the presi dent has changed his mind. Two weeks ago, in an interview given in San Francisco, Senator Foster o, Washington was quoted as saying the president and a party of distinguished per sonages would tour Montana, Washing ton and California this fall. Upon learning of this Mayor William H. Davey addressed an invitation to the president to visit Butte. The mayor has not as yet received a reply to the invita tion but it is known that President Roose velt has telegraphed several of his per sonal friends in the Northwest that he will not be able to make the trip to the Rockies. This means that Butte must wait another year to see the nation's pres ident. STATE OF OHIO, CITY OF TOLEDO, Lucas County--ss: Frank J.

MAN WHO KNOWS SAYS SYSTEM IS PERNICIOUS Quotes Case of Malta Girl Who Was Turned Down, According to Report of State Superintendent of Eduoatloni, Because She Was a Possible Rival to the County Official Examining Her. "As this is teachers' institute time nit would not be at all inappropriate for some of the newspapers to call attention to the farcical method of issuing teachers' cer tificates in vogue in Montana," said a well-known" school man to an Inter Moun tain representative this afternoon. "Down in Valley county there has been A tempest in a teapot over the action of the county superintendent in not issuing a certificate to one of her teachers. Upon investigation by the state superintendent it developed that it was a case of personal feeling on the part of the county superin tendent. "It was, more properly speaking, a ques tion of politics and I have no hesitation in saying that with our vaunted educa tional system, politics have far too much to do with the schools. It appears that Miss Humphreys, the Malta teacher, had expressed her intention to be a candidate for the position of county superintendent at the coming election. "Before the conclusion of the examina tion the county superintendent threw away the teacher's papers, alleging that she had found evidence that the latter had been 'cribbing' and had provided hersi'f with pieces of paper on which were marked answers to many of the questions. The Certificate Question. "It is an old story to people familiar with schools. The trouble is that the granting of certificates should not he put in the hands of unscrupulous superintendents. True it is, the-state superintendent sets the papers, but the county superintendent has the correcting of them. "Quite frequently the superintendent has not half the education of the applicant, for county superintendents are creatures of politics and are hardly ever elected be. cause of any particular fitness for the of fice. "How often do we see young and inex. perlenced teachers elected to the oflice and given the supervision of teachers who are admittedly their superior. I know a case where a high school girl, two years after graduating, was put in control df a system of schools and given the supervision over all the teachers and the principal of the school she had left but a couple of years before. "We have what are called merit certifi cates besides, supposed to be granted to our best teachers. I have been frequently amused at the applications sent in from teachers alleging to be educated. They hold life or state certificates, they say, and they make 5r mistakes in grammar and spelling in the body of the letter. As I am not a reformer I don't care to go into the reasons for this deplorable state of affairs, btut any intelligent school teacher can tell you that it is a fact. An Old Story. "I would like to see the next legislature take hold of this certificate question and settle it. It is a discouragement to good( teachers to be put in the same class with' the incompetent ones and the present far cical method of distributing certificate. gives us a lot of teachers who ought to be washing dishes for a living. This is not a popular view of the certificate situation, and in cities like Butte where you have an excellent superintendent it is avoided by his vigilance. "That there is room for improvement, however, in the present method, every school teacher or person capable of ex pressing an opinion in school matters will tell you. "As long as we mix politics in our schools so long will we have politicians and not teachers occupying thie best posi tions." AB'C Pure, Pete and Sparklbag. Bottled Only at the Brewery in St. Louis.

Yw _ mmSK BARNEY M'GILLIC SAYS IT IS EASY BUTTE'S MOST SUCCE8SFUL OFFI CER TELLS HOW TO GO ABOUT THIEF-TAKING. EVERY CRIMINAL BEARS HIS TRADE IN HIS FACE Peculiar Hunted Look, Like That of a Wild Animal, Is Common to All, and You Experience No Difficulty in Spot ting the Cleverest of Them, If You Only Know How to Do It. Barney McGillic knows a criminal as far as he can see one. The first thing a thug seeks to know when he hits a new town is what officer he has most reason to dread. lhe learns to respect the name of such an offlticer in the same way that a superstitious negro respects the devil. They all have good reason to fear IBar mn,. When the thugs, pickpockets an. burglars come to Butte they cut a wide swath aIrolund police ihedjlitlarters where IBarney hangs out, and when they spy him on the street tl'ey sideste, lhim with as much avidity as the pugilists of the last decade sidestepped John I.. Sullivan. IlBarney was borin with the natural in stinct to spot a criminal. Years of cxperi rnce as an officer of the law have sIeasonediI himi, lint only his natural ability to distin guish crooks from gentlemeni has madle hint the terror to evil-doors that lie is. "A criminal that helongs to the class with burglars, highwaymen, murderers and thugs generally carries a hanlg-dlog expres hion of countenance," said li;rney this afternoon. "Of course this rule does not always hold good, but iine tiel: out of ten you will hit the nail on the head by following that as a guide. It la Easy to Spot Them. "The forger, sneakthief, pickpocket and Iigamist helongs to another class, lie lacks the dogged, devil-many care look, aindl in its place you will find a sneaky eye, a weak mouth and a cunning look ablout the face. A highlwaymlan does nlot lack ill physical courage, a sn;eakthief is afraid of his own shadlow. "Criminals as a rule are scarred about the head or face. T'hese come from fights with officers of the law or with them selves. Then there is always that shout a criminal's eye that makes you look again if you are ;ccustomed to deal with men who break the law. A criminal is like a #olf-he is continually in fear of being caught. "Take a man of the 'Tracy type, for in stance. T'racy had more of the stluff that is commonly called nerve than a dozen ordinary men, but his countenance showed a hunted expression, Ile not only acted the criminal, but looked it. "When I am dietailhd to catch a man, I fix his icdescription in my mind., As I walk along the street I ani thinking of the wanted man, and if by chance I shiould pass him on the street I wouhl recognize him as my 'bird,' although I may never have seen him before. ý "Long practice as an officer makes one ever ready to meet criminals and it soon becomes a secon(l nature," IRISH RESENT CRIMES ACT Dublin Citizens Talk in Plain Language Regarding the Proclamation.
