EDUCATIONAL BILLS AND WHAT
THEY ARE ABOUT AND THE LOBBY .PECIAl. TO Tillr. INTtR MOt'NTAI.Y. Helena, Feb. 12.-=There is being circu lated in the legislature a bandy little cir cular explaining the educational bills now before the two houses. here is what it has to say: The following named hills have been proposed by the Montana State lcachers' association and are now before the legisla ture for their consideration: House bill No. 64-This bill makes it tnecessary for the county superintendent ot schools to possess a state or life diploma rt the time of nomination. The new quali roation is the same as that for principal of a school employing two or more teachers. And the requirement that the state certlii cate or life diploma be held at the time of dlomination will prevent any Iratdulent is suance or rejection of certaihcate for lpolit cal purposes. House bill No. 65; Senate No. 5R-- Light of the present eleven duties of the state board of education pertain to teachers, cer tificates and the government of schools. Besides house bill No. 146 provides that the state board of education prepare the questions for teachers' examinations. As now constituted the state board of etdm.a tion has but one school man on it. 1" his bill seeks to obtain a fairer representation. Iloutse bill No. 68; Senate No. 6: - I here is nedd for a deputy rather than a clerk on account of the many questions and opinions requiredl of the office of state superintendent of public in etruction. The deputy would tuave author. ity during the absence or disability of the state superintendent. Jlouse bill No. 8o-This bill provides that children shall attend school during the entire session of the school in their respective districts rather than for twelve weeks in a year as at present. House bill No. 8l-CLnder the present NO CELEBRATION OF HISTORIC OAY BUT MANY PEOPLE THOUGHT OF THE MARTYRED LINCOLN WITH REVERENT HEARTS. The anniversary of President I.in. coln's birthday was a cold day in Butte and there was ino special celeblration of tae day. Some flags were afloat and in some of the schools special exercises comn m.emorated the occasion. )On the streets, however, there was little to evidence the fact that it was Just 94 years ago to the day that the first mar yrcd president and the emancipator of the slaves was born. Most people were talking about the train robbery, and that engrossed public attention to the exclu. Sion of all other matters of interest. The big banquct of the business men of the city tonight will be the most imprese sive aftair to be carried out in honor of the memory of the president. It will be a fine gathering and one of the principal toasts of the occasiotn will be in his honor. The memory of the great president who steered the union through all its trouble while the civil war was in progress is unever forgotten, however, even though the fact is not made manifest by the tumult of a brass band, anSl it is safe to say that the people of Butte were as fully aware of the occasion and gave it as many reverent thoughts as any people in the Country. CITY POOLROOM MEN ARE AHEAD ON FIRST BALLOT Win Temporary Victory in Clancy's Court in Their Effort to Restrain the City. The city poolroom proprietors won $ temporary victory over the city in the fight in the court today, as the city is tempora. rily enjoined from interfering with the bookmakers. The methods adopted by the poolrooms in town to secure returns upon the horse races in California and New Orleans In lace of the city's ordinance against pool selling were explained to Judge Clancy in the hearing upon the orders to show cause why the city should not be restrained from Interfering with Ilaupt & Shea's and the butte Hotel club rooms operating their poolrooms In the city. After hearing some ev..ence the court issued injunctions against the city pending the trial of the case, or, to use a legal expression, pendente lite. II. 11. Iaupt, who runs a poolroom at No. 7 Main and No. 39 East Broadway, and who seeks an injunction, testified that his concern simply acted in the capacity of brokers and paid a broker's license. Re turns on the races were received by tele. phone from the Walkerville poolroom and posted. Persons desiring to place wagers consulted the Butte poolrooms, who tele phoned to the W\alkerville rooms, and, if the wager were accepted, the deal was closed. E. C. Strike, who is interested in the Walcerville poolroom, said that his con cere was licensed by the Walkerville coun cil and accepted commissions to place money upon the races. The witness ex plained the difference between pool selling and book making. He classed himself as the latter. He said that each night the Walkerville poolroomnt settled with the downtown poolrooms. Oscar Bear, a customer of Shea & Ihaupt, told how tae .,ettors were treated in the poolrooms. He admitted that it was possible that some small bets were takenl without telephonilng up to Walkcr ville. The ordinance against bookmaking and pool selling in Butte was read and the court then heard the order to show cause n the case against the city, the evidence n which was practically the same. After arguments the court said he would issue the i.junctions pending the trial of the issues. Cattle Perishing. BY ASSOCIATED PRESS, Bonesteel, S. D., Feb. :a.-Stockmen from the range country report that cattle are perishing by hundreds.

The trial of the case of the state against M. h. . adsell, who is charged with grandl larceny and was to have been held yester day, has been postponed. The sitting of the case was canceled upon mlotionl of the county attorney. Hadsell was a wit ness for the state in the case against William St. Clair, who was acquitted yes terday of attempting to assist in a jail delivery. AMr. Itreen said the case was postponed largely on account of the ab sence of Deputy County Attorney Yancey, who is more familiar with the case. The prosecutor denied there was any in tention of dropping the case because ilad sell had been a state witness, Hle ad niltted, however, that a settlement of the case was among the possibilities.
