YOUTHFUL ROBBER HELD Helena Boy Who Rifled Letter Box May Be Sent to Reform School. SPECIAL TO THE INTER MOUNTAIN. Helena, March a.--Andrew Passen berger, who was caught by Sergeant of Police Hay Thursday night in the act of rifling letter boxes at the Helena postof doe and tearing up the contents, will prob ably be sent to the reform school. lie is at present in the county jail pending an examination of his case. The boy Is only to years old and his manother has been twice married, rendering his home ties rather weak. He has been in the orphans' home once. The boy evi dently went through the letter boxes in a spirit of mischief, as he tore open a check for $s,74o belonging to the state land register and tore up many letters. The failure of patrons to close their let ter boxes is given as the cause of the robbery as much as the waywardness of the boy. This is the second time the Helena postoffice letter boxes have been rifled by boys within a short space of time and the postal authorities are de termined to put a stop to it.

WEEK IN MARKETS Prices at a Higher Level and a Better Feeling Prevails Today. Sv ASSOCIATED PR.P.. New York, March a1.-The end of the week finds market prices at a higher level with a better feeling all around. The only cause for uneasiness, in the opinion of observers, is that created by the Southern Pacific controversy, the importance of which seems to have been unduly magni fled. Technically the market is believed to be in fairly strong position. Time money is freely offered at lower rates and is only sparingly accepted. Traders seem to have reversed their positions in a num ber of instances, and in the last few days have seen some "good" buying by sub stantial stocks. The ratification of the Cuban reciprocity treaty removes one element of doubt, and the labor situation, which looked threaten ing a few days ago, is somewhat improved. Early announcement of several important railroad "deals" now pending is expected. Reports that Rockefeller interests have in creased their New York Central holdings are credited in conservative quarters. Almost zoo important railroads for Janu ary show very nominal net Decreascs. Missouri Pacific earnings for the month show a net increase of $622,ooo. A Guaranteed Cure for Piles. Itching, Blind, Bleeding and Protrud ing Piles. No cure? no pay.

MADE RECORD AS A NAVAL OFFICER Admiral Crowinshield Hands Down His Flag and Goes on the Re tired List. BY ASSOCIATED I'PRES. Washington, 'March ar.--Notwithstand ing the factional feeling that has existed among naval oflicers ever since the Span ish war, there is none in the service who will allow his partisanship to warp his judgment to such an extent as to deny the fact that the navy loses a brilliant and able officer when Rear Admiral A. S. Crowninshield hauled his flag from the Chicago at Naples yesterday. Citicism of Rear Admiral Crowninshield has been freely indulged in, but his capability as a naval officer has never been disputed. The prominent part he played as a mem ber of the board of naval strategy during the war with Spain will ever remain a bril liant page in the naval history of the United States.

Differences of Opinion. The commissioners also say that, while there have been differences of opinion among themselves, there never has been a time during the five months of the ex istence of the commission when there was an unpleasant word spoken among them, "or any indication whatever of thought or desire of aught save truth and justice." The commission then takes up the de mande of the mine workers and the an swers of the mine operators, giving in detail the reasons for the findings, In a general way they say that the conditions of the life of a mine worker outside of the mines does not justify to the full ex tent the adverse criticisms made by their representatives. They also find that the social conditions in the mining communi ties are good and they fall to find that the wages are so low among the miners as necessarily to force them to put their small childten to work. The commission also finds that the average daily rate of earnings In the anthracite regions does not 2769 Chairs AN..-------..
