After struggling between life and death
for a week, Dr. H. A. Cayley gives ex
cellent indications of recovering. Dr.
Hanson, his physician, who has been with
out hope ever since he was called upon
to attend the wounded man, expressed him
self today as believing that Cayley had
a fair chance to get well.
The change of condition is directly due
to the X-Ray examination made yesterday
by Dr. Hanson in an effort to locate the
bullet. It has been found that this use
of electricity has materially relieved the
paralysis from which Dr. Cayley was suf
fering. Should it be determined that this
change of condition is due to the use
of the X-Rays it will be of great value
to the medical profession. Electricity Is
being used to wonderful advantages and
it is not impossible that it may prove
effective in treating cases of this char

Helena, Oct. so.-Business establish
snents using light and power, and the en
tire street railway system of Helena are
tied up as the result of the burning of
the city power station of the Helena Light
and Traction company, near the Montana
Central depot, at I o'clock this morning.
A short-circuited wire caused the build
ing to blaze.
The flames started in the roof, and be
fore sufficient water could be thrown upon
them the entire building was gutted.
Actual destruction by fire did not cause
such great damage, but heat and flames
caused the delicate electrical machinery to
warp. This makes it useless and a total
The power-house used power front the
Canyon Ferry dam. In reality it was a
big transforming statiin.
All the power for the street railway,
the electric light system, elevators, news
papers and lights in business houses and
homes came from the plant.
Power still comes from the dam, but
it is of a high pressure and alternating,
and therefore a difficult proposition.
Orders have been sent to Butte for
transformers, which would make possible
use of the current direct.
Until they come, it will be impossible
to obtain power and lights. Every street
car in the city is standing where it was
caught when the power was shut off. To
night, lack of lights will be felt in all
parts of the city.
The loss is $45,ooo; insurance, $3o,ooo.

AFFIDAVIT IN iHE
DAVIS WILL CASE
NEW YORK LAWYER MAKES DEPOSI
TION RELATIVE TO INGERSOLL
ESTATE-CLAIM FOR FEE.
The deposition of Simon H. Stern, a
lawyer of New York, was today filed in
.he case of the estate of Robert G. Inges
soll against Henry A. Roote and othets
to collect $95,oo0 alleged to be due said
estate as attorney fee for services ren
acred by Mr. Ingersoll in the Davis will
The only thing of any Interest to the
tvcncral public in this deposition is the
tcstimcny of Mr. Stern as to the kind
.,ess of manner of Mr. Ingersoll. The
dcposition relates to a conversation where
in Mr. Roote was consoling Colonel Inger
sc.ll on account of his inability to pay
tie colonel as much as was first agreed
.,pon, on account of the loss of the hank.
Mr. Stern says: "I remember Roote
a.id, perhaps half a dozen times, how sor
,y he was; how awful it was that they
were disappointed and Colonel Ingersoll
said over and over again: 'You did the
rest you could and I am satisfied, Henry.'
I remember that perfectly well, because
I thought it was very lovely of Colonel
Ingersoll to be as philosophical and kindly
as he was about it; it seemed more as if
he was comforting Mr. Roote instead of
Mr. Roote comforting him by reason o'
the loss. It impressed itself very deeply
on my mind, his kindness of manner."

bunch of applicants for citizenship this
morning. lie is getting rather out of
patience with those who put off declaring
their intentions until just before election.
During the course of the morning the
judge took occasion to lecture a number of
mcn on this point, and then asked why they
did not prcsentt their applications before,
they invented all sorts of lame excuses.
Of the large number that appeared this
morning but six were able to pass muster
of Judge Knowles' rigid examination.
Peter F. lHosch of Helena was. dis
charged from bankruptcy this morning in
the federal court.
The petition for final discharge from
