that are now tadet justify Aill that was

Slver Blow county may conic soit.IewhlerIe 1
ne:ir getting their rights, Thlre oughl to I
lie an early healtring of the petition of Mr.
Ryan, which i as tiled it thle district curt
yesterday.
The petition alleges tutch crookeid work,
o1t1ig which itmay lie Iiterd "that the total
numlber of ballots counted for \\esiton,
lut which should have cibeen given to his
npponeliliint, was 5o, more thant eiinough to
have elected himii the tillie for which lie
contests." A futrtihr allegation is madle
that aboutt ,lO hitlliots were not counted
by the judges if electioni fir IRya:i, when
they were really cast fir hit.l,
If this is correct it i~ a sc.erioul s miatter
and lne that a'fietsi very citizen ofI f the

"In each of the said precincts lIerein

of the petitioun, "there ere illegal votles

for the office of county clerk afiresaid,
the c:tact t.mluber of which, in each lire
cinct, your petitioner is tunable to give,
but that your petitioner is infotrmeld and
elies es and alleges, that inore than Soo
votes were so counted, and wnich, had said
illegal votes not been coutnted for the said
Johnt \esto, wiould have changed the
result of said clection."
Regarding tthe handling of the returns
by the cainvasstig board, otherwise the
county comm isoitners, these nirect charges
are miade :
"The board of county commissioners
convened on the 10th day of November
and organized as a board of county
canvassers, and thereupon proceeded to
open the sealed envelopies containing
the returns from each of the 50 pre
cincts in the county of Silver Bow, under
the pretense of ascertaining whether or
not the returns were full and complete.
After having opened each and every
one of the sealed envelopes containing
the returns the board of canvassers de
livered each and every one of the en
velopes so opened, containing the re
turns, into the care and custody of John
Weston, the contestee, as county clerk,
after having placed them in canvas sacks
sealed insecurely, with no distinctive
mark, and that the said envelopes, con
taining the returns from each of the
precincts remained in the care of John
Weston until the 18th day of November,
at which time the board called for them
and proceeded to canvass the vote polled
in the county on the fourth day of
November for the office of county clerk
upon the returns inclosed in the envel
opes, which had for seven days prior to
that day been in the custody of John
Weston."

FRAUDULENT MINING SCHEMES.
A concern in California is using a good
deal of printer's ink to assure the public
that it "guarantees" 60 per cent dividends
whenI its mill is completed, and which
promises to pay one per cent per month
until the mill is completed. O()n this
promise it is offering its stock for sale to
the publlic. antd of course is disposing of
a lot of it, although it is promtising too
tlluch to catch any but the utnwalry and
incredulous. It conmes untler'the headl of
the "get-rich-quick" enterprises, aond the
public ought to let it alone. The mining
busiiness perhaps more thtan any other
bulsilness is hurt by these concerll,, and,
strangely enough, peopleh' in the minitng
colunlltry are among the victin.. l'hese
conlcerns qctite oftten pay dividends for
awhile according to promise, butt they are
paid utit of tihe money received from new
victims. It is by no means an "cndless
chain," and the (ltd is soon reached, but
not until thusands of lersons have lost
their mlloney. It is an oldI story to say
thalt schemesll which promlise so ntlch are

PEOPLE WE MEET
A TTORNEY W. C. JONES of this city,
formerly congressman from the 4tate
of Washington and then a member of they`
anti-republican forces on the floor, tells
a story that well illustrates the esteem In
which the late Thomas B. Reed was held
by the members of congress, over whose,
deliberations he presided.
"At the cloge of the Fifty-fifth con
gress," said Mr.: Jones today, "a tribute
was paid to Speaker Reed the like of

of a congress for the
speaker to leave the chair, calling to lit
some member of his party, and then soote
mai prominent in that party offers a
resolution thanking the speaker for t e, ,
manner in which he has conducted the
office. Prior to the Fifty-fifth congress it
was the invari.i,le rule for the party ntt
opposition to vote in the negative on the
resolution.
"lut so eminently fair and just hld

doing so he made a magnificent little
speech on be llIf of the democrats in
praise of the manner in which Reed had
presided. When the vote was taken not

of the Chicago Itoard of 'Trade. It is a
day of panic ont 'chanlge, antld fortunles are

around the wheat pit stands the gambler
referred to in the title of the play. He'
has in Ilatnd a tremendous wheat deal,
which is being smashed aln foiled by
somne unllkownl operator who is dealing
through another broker. The place is a
veritable bedlain in its turmoil. The gatu

becatuse he is a membller of tile Board of

TWILVE GOOD MEN SECURED
Trial of E. J. Daily, Charged With the Murder of Charles Ray, Be.
gun Before Judge McClernan..Jurors Shown Environments
of Struggle In Which Ray-Received Death Wound.
A selection of men who will determine
'vlhether or not E. J. Daily is to be held
responsible for the death of Charles Ray,
whose end was caused by a knife wound
,in the leg, was made in Judge McClernan's
court this morning, and the trial of the
dean charged with the most serious of
,crimes was begun..
The jurors are: William Tyaack, Ed
ward Wilcox, John Nankirvis, John Hask
'ings, Samuel Williams, Mike Merevitch,
''Maurice McGrath, Joseph D. Vallencourt,
tGus Ahltquist, W. C. Moore, J. W. Mar
shall and D. 'T. Staten.
It was only by drawing upon the spe
eial venire summoned Tuesday that the
jury was finally completed. This was done
.soon after the opening of court this morn
sing, however, and, the case was then ready
fur trial.
Mackel Statement First.
Alexander Mackel, assistanlt county at
,rlney, made the opening statement to the
jury. lie announced that the state would
endeavor t'o 'roJe that it was Daily who
'inflicted the wound, that was said to have
caused the death of Ray. The state will
'cite tie alleged enmity between the men
:mId the charges of "a fight.
After the opening statemnct on cbehalf*
played by a specially selected comllpany and
equlipped with magnifident scenery and ef
fects, is to be produced at the Broadway
theater next Friday and Saturday even
inllgs, with a matinee on Saturday.
In "The Princess Chic."
One of the most popular vocal numbers
ini the "Princess Chic" is a solo for Jo
sph C. Miron, the leading basso, entitled
"War is a Bountiful Jade." The solo ;s
,accompanied by the entire strength of the
imale chorus of the company. It is ren
dered uniqute by the fact that each of the
,,o ldd ilirn is equipped with a hammer
anid anvil, with which they are supposed
to be mending their broadswords. Julian
EI'dwards has written characteristic music
for the refrain, and this, with the novel
:cl:cmllpaninilent, has made the song as
lppular as thl armorer song in "Rolbin
Ild.I." The song has made a big hit at
the Ilroadway. The engagemelnt closes this
(-veting.
"Alphonse and Gaston."
Mr. F. tipper, with his pictures of the
ulira polite Frecnchnlen, has mnade the na
rioi laugh regularly once a week for the
past two years, but Alpholnse. anid (;'aston
