MONTANA PAYS BIG MONEY Dividends Paid to the Es tate of the Late Lewis Best Are Large. The brewery business evidently pays. ? he administration of the estate of the late Lewis Best, the well known brewer, shows that. The frst annual account of the administrator of the estate, Henry Mueller, was settled in Judge McClernan's court this morning, and it showed that the estate had received thousands of dollars in the form of dividends from various brewing companies of the state. The account gave evidence that Mr. Mueller had received the aum of $56, 589.37 in the aggregate from the estate since taking charge of it, and that all but $33 of that amount had been realised either from dividends from stock held by Mr. Best in his lifetime in a number of brewing companies or from the proceeds of the sale of such stock. "This account shows all the money and property belonging to the estate which you have received as administrator, does it not?" Attorney C. F. Leonard, the estate's lawyer, asked Mr. Mueller. "Yes, sir," the latter replied. It was then stated by Mr. Mueller that tue account also showed all his expendi tures for the estate. The expenditure amounted in the aggregate, according to the account of Mr. Mueller's testimony, to the sum of $55,888.14, which left a balance in the estate amounting to the sumn of $701.j3. The disbursements were divided between claims against the estate paid by the ad ministrator and family allowances. Mr. Mueller testifed that nothing was paid out for fees for attorney or the administrator, an4 the account showed that $4o,ooo were received into the estate from the sale of one block of stock to Mrs. Best and $8,Soo from the sale of an other block to her. The dividends ranged from $200 to $Soo, and the family allowances were made in sums of $400 each. Judge ,tcClernan allowed and approved the account after listening to the testi mony and examining the account. 0 SPECIAL TO THE INTER MOUNTAIN. Lewistown, March 13.-E. WV.

The enly Exclusive Carriage House in the State CARNEY BEGS FROM THE CHIEF BY MISTAKE Error of Eyesight Costs Mendicant Thirty Days in City Jail. When Jack Carney tried to beg from Chief of Police Reynolds he brought on himself the consequences of former of fenses which had been condoned. Car ney's subsequent desperate effort to es cape from Police Clerk Doody helped to secure for him the Jo-day sentence to the county jail which Police Judge Boyle handed out this morning. Carney had never seen Chief Reynolds, and as the latter is rather unassuming in appearance, the man came to grief the more easily. The chief, with his clerk and one or two companions, were returning from the theater last evening. They stood on the Broadway sidewalk for a short time talking. Carney sized up the crowd as "easy" and approached with the old formula: "Excuse me, Mister, can you give me is cents to buy-" "Doody. take him to headquarters, will you?" said the chief, and Carney found himself in the grasp of a man much smaller than himself. As soon as the pair were out of sight the prisoner tried to wrench loose. The fight that followed lasted to the station door, but Doody, in spite of the size of the prisoner, who measures more than six feet. held fast. Carney was freed on a former charge of like nature because of a pitiful plea for work. lHe got 30o days this morning. TO ENLARGE MILITARY POST AT FORT MISSOULA Purchase of State Land by the Munici pality Would Make Place Leading Military Post. SPECIAL TO TIlE INTIE.R aOI'NTAIX. Missoula, March a3.-The purchase by the city of Missoula of 32o acres of state land at Fort Missoula for the purpose of deeding it to the government as a site for a permanent military post has created un usual interest and will, it is hoped, lead to the government making this one of the leading military posts of the Northwest. The Northern Pacific Railway company has promised to deed a large tract of land to the government also. If the government goes ahead with the proposition as pre dicted, accepts the proffered land and erects suitable buildings, Fort Missoula will become, what many believe it always should have been, the leading military post of Montana. The citizens generally feel very elated over the prospects of the post being enlarged and made a permlanent fixture. Wilson Bros.' Sr.so Bi-Metallic shirts for 75c today at Hcnnessy's.

S c 41-East Park Street-41 m - - QUARREL OVER IHE SHEEHAN ESTATE TWO OFJTHE GURVIVING RELATIVES W4AtT TO BE APPOINTED GUARDIAN. There is a quarrel on in the district coust over the estate of the children of the late William Shcehan. Ilonoria Sheehan, the sister of the dead man and the aunt of the children, wants to be appointed thejs guardian, and so does Michael Shea, the brother of the mother, who is dead also, and uncle of the youngsters. Sheehan in his will named his sister as guardian of the children, but Shea came in with an application for his appointment in spite of that. The estate was before Judge McClernan this morning upon the hearing of the latter's petition. Nothing was dune, however, as Attorney J. J. Lynch, for Miss lionoria Sheehan, secured a continuance. The estate of the children consists of about $1,3oo in money, which is on deposit in the Hibernian bank of San Francisco. The money is held by the bank and will not be given up by it till an administra. tion of the estate has been carried out in California. When the case was called this morning Mr. Lynch arose and explained to the court that Honoria Sheehan is in Sail Francisco, and that her lawyer had writteq to him asking for authenticated copies of the will of Sheehan and other papers in the estate matter here. Miss Sheehan was compelled to go to San Francisco inl the interests of the chil. dren and in connection with the money in the Hibernia bank, and her lawyer has not been able to get along with the estate matter down there. Miss Sheehan wants to be guardian according to the wishes of the will of Sheehan, and if we are granted a continuance we will be able to get the matter into shape," said Mr. Lynch. Attorney Baldwin, representing Shea, opposed the continuance, saying that the matter had already been continued once for six weeks. "Where are the children?" the cour asked. "In the Sisters' orphans' home at Hel ena," Mr. Lynch replied, and added thit the children were being well taken care of, and that the money In the Hibernia bank is the only money in the estate for their support and for the payment of claims. In compliance with Mr. Lynch's request Judge McClernan said he would continue the matter again, for the last time, for the period ed two weeks.

Connelly was taken to Murray & Freund's hospital. Severe bruises are the extent of his injuries. The accident occurred at the corner of Galena rtreet and Shiehls avenue. The car was rounding the curve to the avenue. Connelly, who had been rounding it in the other direction, had just put on brakes when the crash came. It was dark and snowing at the time.
