THE BUTTE INTER MOUNTAIN
VOL XXII NO. 178 WEATHER FORECAST. BUTTE, MONTANA, MONDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 13, 192z. FAIR, WARMER. PRICE FIVE CENTS HON JOHN M, EVANS BOYCOTTED BY ASSEMBLY. Labor Unions of the State of Montana Will Vote Against Missoula Man CHINESE LABOR MATTER IS BROUGHT TO A HEAD Silver Bow Trades and Labor Assembly Decides to Work Against Democratio Candidate for Congress, at Request of Missoula Laboring Men, Whom Evans Turned Down on Question of Firing His Chinese Help Sometime Ago. John M. Evans is boycotted by the labor unions of the state of Montana. Action was taken last evening by the Silver Bow Trades and Labor Assembly, and every labor union and trades assembly in the state will follow suit. The action taken against the Clark congressional candidate trom Missoula is because of Evans' violent antipathy to organized labor. President McIlvaney u? the Missoula Trades and Labor Assem bly, came over to Butte Saturday night and at the meeting of the Silver Bow Trades and Labor Assembly, asked pet mission to state a grievance coming from his assembly. The courtesy was extend. ed and the Missoula president, in an able address, set forth the past opposi tion of Evans to organized labor anra recited at length the reasons why the Mis soula workingmen asked the assistance o& other unions in opposing the candidacy of Evans. It Is an Old Story. President Mcllhaney related that for the past four or five years the labor unions of Missoula had struggled with Evans and his opposition to white labor. During the period mentioned, Evans employed a Chinese servant, regardless of repeated requests from the labor unions and the working women aet the city, to em ploy white servants. At times Evans went so far as to villify the union men and women who were fighting in self-protec tion against Chinese contract labor and to tell them that he would hire any and all of the Chinese he pleased. Finally the matter became so notorious and aroused such a storm of angry pro tests, that Evans made a public assertion that he was unable to engage white wo men as servants and the foxy Southern sympathizer, according to President Mc Ilvaney, in his speech Sunday night, had effrontery to stick to this, notwithstand. Ing the offers to procure him white help. Then He Changed His Tactics. It was not until he was nominated at Bozeman for congressmnan, said the Mis soula president, that Evans discharged his Chinese servants. He quickly procured a white woman and an American, but the Missoula union men determined not to be blinded by the hypocritical change of faith, and it was for this reason that the assembly sent its president to Butte to ask assistance. A full exposition of the manner in which Evans defied the union men and women and besmirched their character was given by President McIlvagey in his address to the Butte laboring men. The simple recital of the facts aroused the delegates to the assembly and the matter was discussed at length. A resolution was offered denouncing Evans and his Chinese and setting forth the reasons why Clark's candidate should not be supported by union men. Milder Counsel Prevailed. The delegates were ready to vote for the resolution and favored even a stronger appeal, but it was pointed out that much more good could be accomplished through instructing each delegate to present the matter to his individual union, which hau more power to act. This also would pre vent any criticism of the assembly in the line that the assembly was trying to politically boss the individual workingman. The action of the assembly makes the request of the Missoula Trades and Labor unions more far-reaching, as each union in taking individual action and stamps the Chinese episode as one worthy of the united opposition of all laboring men and further insures a strong concerted move ment against the Clark candidate, which cannot but result in his defeat. As fast as the individual unions meet, the matter will be brought up and action taken against the man who employs white labor only when he is running for office and is afraid of the great power of or ganized labor.

After pre liminary maneuvers with a rope attach ment, Debrasky released the balloon and proceeded southward at a height of 300 or 400 feet. The propellers of the ma chine appeared to work well. The rud der, however, was not quite successful. At about 9:2o the balloon had returned to above the point of departure and then it gradually mounted higher and higher until it disappeared in the clouds. About 9:3o when the balloon was above St. Ains, near St. Dennis, about five and one half miles from the center of the city, the ropes attaching to the car to the balloon broke from some unknown cause and the car, with it occupants, Debrasky and Morin, were dashed to the ground and the aeronauts met instant death.

OLD SOLDIER IS IN COUNTY JAIL JAMES YOUNG SENT UP FOR TEN DAYS BY POLICE JUDGE BOYLE FOR STEALING A CHECK. James Young, an old soldier, charged with stealing a check for $io on complaint of Mrs. Graham, was fined $So and costs this morning by Judge Boyle. Hie was un able to pay the fine and was committed to the county jail for io days. Young's story was that Mrs. Graham gave him the check, which was indorsed, in payment for some work he did for her. The understanding was that he was to get the check cashed and then, after taking out what was due him, to give her back the change. Mrs. Graham, on the other hand, alleged that the check was forged by Young, but although experts were brought in to testify to the signature of Mrs. Gra ham on the back of the check, it could not be proven that the veteran was guilty of lorgery. He was fined on the charge' of petit larceny, no complaint of forgery hav ing been made against him. In sentencing him Judge Boyle told him that he deserved three months for his of fense but that on acount of his long and creditable service in the civil war he would make the sentence to days in the county jail in default of the payment of the fine. Pete Donlan and Ole Almaran were fiited $5 and costs for drunkenness.

Three persons were bruised, but none seriously hurt. THAT AMENDMENT PUZZLES CITIZENS MANY CANNOT UNDERSTAND NA TURE OF MEASURE TO BE VOTED FOR IN NOVEMBER. READ THIS AND LEARN WHAT IT IS ALL FOR Offioe of County Commissioner Requires Experience and Understanding and It Is Thought That if They Serve Longer Terms, It Will Prove Beneficial to the People of the State at Large. Roth the county attorney's and county coimlissioners' office are being besieged with questions regarding the purport of the constitutional amendment which will be submitted to the people at the comilng election, regulating the tenure of oflice of the board of county commissioners. At the last session of the legislature an act was passed submitting the question to p'ipular vote and as the ballots will sim ply hec marked "for or against the colnsti tutliutal amendment," there is a desire on tle part of many of the voters of Silver liw county to understand the question so thlat they may be able to vote intelligently. I ndter the present law, the county coot mi'.inllers are elected for a term of four y',ars, all entering at the same time and va c;ltng for a new set of officers at the end of their terms. The general intention of tile law, as proposed by the legislature, andil supported by representatives from c: ry party, is to have some old men In fthe oflice on the arrival of those newly elected. How It Will Be Done. In order to accomplislh this, it will be Iicessary to elect one commnissioner for to.u years; one for four and one for six, anId as the term of each expires his suc cessor will be elected for a term of four years. This will leave two old members oim the board as when each new one is elected and after the expiration of the terita the first commissioner elected for two years, all others will be elected for mix years. For example, the county commissioners of Silver Bow county have been elected for (our years and their terms will expire with the year 1905. By extending that term until the end of p9o6 and electing their successors for two, four and six ye/rmr respectively, the latter will begin to t ,Ve in January, 1907. The first term to re ire will be In December, 9ao8, slid at ti., election that fall, ode commisitqner w 11 be elected for six years, his term e .piring two years later than the long te rm commissioner of the board. Two years later, a six-year commissioner will be elected in place of the four-year mani and two years following another to fill the place of the last six-year man. A Good Policy. Advocates of the measure--and they arc manly-maitttain that, as in the national anid state senates, it is a good policy to have a majority understanding the work ing of the office when the new commis sioner conies in but a day or two spent in courthouse with the commnlssloners shows itJit the work is as intricate and in getr cral requires more familiarity and ability ii, administering county affairs than any other office in the courthouse. New questions are continually arising, it the disposition of which considerable study and care is required. It is in the s,.ttlement of such cases that the com missioner becomes a valuable officer. His experience is a good argument for the rct:.ntion of some or the old members. CRIMEAN VETERAN IS DEAD James L. Maclaren, One of England's Defenders, Dies in Salt Lake.
