ANACONDA DEPARTMENT'
SCARLET FEVER EPIDEMIC OVER
Only a Few Cases Reported to the City Physician and None of Them
Are Critical-Said That Condition of Sewers, and Not Water
From Atlantic Cable Mine, Cause of Typhoid.
SPECIAL TO THE INTER MOUNTAIN.
Anaconda, Dec. z r.-From City Physl
tian Evans it is learned that but one case
of scarlet fever has been reported in the
past ten days. The doctor believes that
the epidemic has about run its course and
that the danger has passed. There are
now not more than a dozen cases In the
city, and so far as can be learned none
of them are in a dangerous condition.
Death has resulted in but two cases,
end in both of these the immediate cause
of death was scarlet fever.
While this is true of scarlet frier, there
are no less than sixty cases of typhoid,
but as the physicians are not required to
report these cases to the health office, no
definite figures can be given. There are
thirty-five cases in the hospital and nearly
as many more scattered around the city.
Prevalence of Typhoid.
The cause of the prevalence of this
disease is a matter of conjecture and many
theories are advanced. Yesterday there
was a rumor that the pumping out of the
Atlantic Cable mine at Cable, the waters
from which flow into Warm Springs creek,
was the cause. Others are quite sure that
it is the milk, and still others are quite
certain that the sole and only cause is
general uncleanliness in certain parts of
the city and bad sewerage.
All agree that it is not the water, and
MILWAUKEE MINES

SPECIAI. TO TliE INTER MOaUNTAIN.
Anaconda, Dec. I .-.ine of the many
miillng enterprises tributary to this city
that gives promise of great things inl the
future is the Milwaukee Gold Mining com
pany. The mines of this concern are sit
uated at the extreme northeastern end of
Cable mountain at that point where Flint
creek starts on its way to the Pacific ocean.
More than one year ago G. rl. Savage, a
well-known mining engineer of Butte, se
cured a bond on the Hanna group of claims
and formed a company in Milwaukee for
the purpose of developing this property.
Some little litigation resulted between the
stockholders that has retarded the work
since the bond was taken up but that was
recently adjusted in favor of Mr. Savage

it is generally acknowledged that Ana
conda has the best and purest water of
any town or city in the state.
The milk is now being tested by a
competent chemist, and that matter will
soon be settled. There are but few who
cling to the milk theory, as it is generally
believed that all of the milkmen doing
business in the city use the purest and
best of water. The cows are all healthy
and consequently there is no chance for
contamination.
Not Caused by Cable Water.
As to the Cable water, it is certain that
it is not the cause, for the reason that
the typhoid epidemic has been running
for some weeks, and the pumps in the
Cable were only started a few days ago.
Not alone that, but as the water runs, it
is not less than forty miles to Cable, and
in that distance the water would and does
become purified. Even if this were not
the case, there is nothing in the water of
the Cable mine that would cause sickness
of any kind.
There is but little, if any, mineral in
the Cable mine other than gold and iron,.
both of which in a liquid state arc popu
larly supposed tj be healthful.
There is no denying the fact that the
sewerage system in the city is not all
that it should be, and to it nearly all of
the physicians attribute the fever that has
so alarmed the residents.
and active development work has been
commenced and from ,now will be pushed
forward.
Mr. Savage was in the city yesterday for
the purpose of purchasing supplies and re
ports that he now has employed about zo
men and that he may increase this force in
the near future. Hle thinks well ot the
property and believes that it will prove to
be a great mining district.

PATR'ICK CASEY ACQUITTED
ON THE CHARGE OF THEFT
Jury in Justice Nelson's Court Finds h.
Did Not Take Lumber-Lots of
It Is Chalk Marked.
Patrick Casey, a citizen of Centerville,
was yesterday afternoon acquitted of the
charge of stealing a small qtuantity of wood
from the Centerville school house by a jury
in Justice Nelson's court.
The complaint was sworn to by 'Thomas
Richards, clerk of the board of education.
Mr. Richards thought that because the
stolen wood had red chalk marks on the
end of each stick und that wood found in
Casey's possession was marked in the same
way, he must surely be the guilty party,
but the defense proved that lots of wood
sold in Butte is marked in the same way
and the jury promptly returned a yerdict
of not guilty.
