Warren, the rep resentative of the insane contract, are receiving the usual number of joshes on the subject, but are standing them like little men. Representative Miller's bill, which was introduced yesterday, to take over the state prison and appoint a state oflicial warden, gives Colonel Tom only short shift. It provides that the contract shall be closed out ,o days after the passaure of the bill, but still Colonel Tom's hair has not yet turned white. ()One thing which apparently has not been taken into consideration by those who would take the contract for the insane is that the state has no asylum con structed, nor has it money available to erect such a building for the 4oo or 5oo patients now being cared for. The ex Iprienc'e of other states is that the cost of erecting a modernl asylum is about $8oo for each patient to be cared for.

TALK BY NORWEGIAN STUDENT Thorvald Klaveness Tells of His Native Land and the Poet Bjornsen Committee of Entertainment to Receive Their Distinguished Countryman. 'I horvald Kla\veness, a Norwegian stu dent of political economy and labor con ditions, who is in America for the pur pose of familiarizing himself with the features of the laborer's life in America, delivered an address last evening at the Norwegian Independent church on the subject of his native land and one of his great fellow-countrymen, the poet Bjorn sen lIjornsen. The church was crowded with many people from the land of the reindeer and the mountain fjord, and the scholarly disquisition of Mr. Klaveness, who is an orator and editor as well as enthusiast in social and industrial mat ters, was immensely, enjoyed. Mr. Klaveness ddated upon the great influence Bijornsen has exerted upon his ,eople and his time. The poet is now So years old and over and his writings are familiar to the readers of the world. His many great qualities as a man and a w\riter are conceded by the critics of allI countries, and the advancement of Nor way along all lines during the lifetime of the poet had been as much due to his writings and his views as to any indi vidual man in that country. Mr. Klaveness' address was delivered in Norwegian, the native language of most of his hearers, and it was a treat to the latter. Mr. Klaveness is being entertained dur ing his stay in Butte by prominent fellow countrymen who call this city their home. Attorney liogevoll, Hans C. Bob, Rev. N. L. Hansen and Rev. P.

AMONG THE TOILERS THEORIST, EMPLOYER AND LABORER ARE BANQUETED While Each Gives His Ideas of How So to Work Side by Side as to Bring Peace on This Earth. DBY ASSO('IArI.D lRI, $. Boston, Mass., Feb. ir.-The theorist, the active worker in labor and employer of labor, were all represented at a dinner dis cussion held here by the Economist club last night. The subject was the "Perqui sites of Industrial Harmony." Fhe role of what presiding officer George E McNeill called the "theorist" was filled by H. Gaylord Wilshire, editor of Wil shire's magazine, prominent as an ex pounder of socialistic doctrine; the indus trial was M. Riebenack, who was assistant comptroller of the Pennsylvania railroad; the labor employer was represented by George E. Chace, treasurer of the Bourne mills, Fall River, and Henry R. Towne of the Yale & Towne Manufacturing company of Connecticut; and labor itself by Henry White, secretary of the National Garment Workers' union. Mr. Riebeanack explained the various pension systems now in opera tion on the Pennsylvania railroad. Mr. Wilshire devoted some time to con sidering the system set forth by Mr. Ric benack with respect to the economic rela tion to, and effect on, industrial condi tions. He thought the socialists have the only reasonable solution for present econo mic conditions. The next speaker, Mr. Chace, explained the profit-sharing system carried out in the Bourne mills, in Fall River. IMr. Towne expressed the belief that what was most needed today in in dustry is a closer relation between em ployer and employe. Mr. White of the Garment Makers' union, the final speaker, argued against profit-sharing plans on the ground that their effect is to bind the working classes to the employer and to prevent an increase of wages if they do not bring about a cut down in pay.

Chicago, Feb. ii.-'The strike of ele vator men and janitors in a nuober of office buildings in Chicago camne to an end last night and the men will return to work this morning. The abrupt fin ish of the strike was unexpected and was brought about by the Managers' associa tion receding from the position it had taken in refusing to submit its case to the Chicago board of arbitration. It was alleged by the managers that a majority of the men on this board are friendly to the teamsters, who have been allies of the elevator men in the strike, and their case would be prejudiced. They wished a different set of arbitrators,. They announced last night that they had be come convinced that they would receive fair treatment by the board and agreed to submit the case. The men declared two days ago that they were willing to abide by the decision of the board.
