SATURDAY, .MARCH 21. ,903. Mr. Watterson's latest gent is entitled "The Everlasting Cleveland." This is not half bad, coming from the never-to-be-sup pressed and eternal Kentucky colonel who we have always with us. The picture of the propose-d new ldept s for Helena indicates a structure that will be a credit to the town. A saddenl ing sug gestion is, however, that Biutte hasn't one like it. t lHas gallantry fled from the breast of t mankind that a subscription is not taken up to help lletty Green pay her lioboken dog license of $-? Did Cervantes kill chivalry sure enough? Alas. it would sete so. For a gentleman with a sore .eg Mr. James R. Keene, the able Wa\\l street manipulator, has undoubtcldly unldertaken a large contract. It is just possible, too, that in addition to his sore leg Mr. Keen( is troubled slightly with the affliction known as sore head. We understand that the Helena commit tee of arrangements is preparing with great care a photograph of the proposed new depot to show President Roosevelt when he arrives at the capital. lHelena does not propose to hide her shining light under a bushel, and there's no reason why sIhe should. It may be worth while for Mr. Roosevelt as he swings through the West to know that under the new game law of Idaho every male person who hunts or fishes must first procure a liceose. A resident of Idaho may procure a license for $i, but a non-resident must fork over $5, with no rebate to presidents. In another place is printed the call signed by Eugene Carroll, J. T. O'Brien, J. R. Wharton and eight other leading citi zens giving notice of a mass meeting to be held at the Auditorium at 8 o'clock this evening for the purpose of nominating a citizens' ticket for local offices. The citi sens' movement is growing rapidly. THAT FLAT IRON BUILDING New York is a good deal torn over the Flatiron building at the intersection of Broadway, Fifth avenue and Twenty-third street. Public opinion may be said to be Sarrayed against it. It is alleged that its height and peculiar form of structure, together with its location, have the effect to "condense and divert" the up-town ano cross-town zephyrs out of their aocus tomed channels, thereby causing all kinds of discomforts to pedestrians. A part of the allegement is that the building In. creases tile force of the wind. Ladies are said to avoid the locality to the injury of shopkeep.rs. One of the yellow news papers alleged recently in type a little kess than a foot high that a zephyr raised by this structure blew a horse and cab through a plateglass window. One might imagine front reading the stories emanating from the ireety center that the conditions there are almost as had as at Livingston or Great Falls, though the imagination staggers a trifle at the suggestion. It seems like the irony of fate to recall the fact that for years the old building which was torn down to tsake room for the Flatiron was used by an elec tric advertising company, and from the side of the old building blazed nightly an advertisement of Manhattan beach setting forth as the chief attraction that it was "Swept by Ocean Breezes," as if breezes were things to be cultivated. Now the same locality is abused and cursed illn many languages bIecause it raises breezes. It all goes to show what unreasonable beings New Yorkers are. THE SCHOOL TRUSTEES The three men placed in nomination hiy a non-partisan convention for trustees for school district No. i, which consti tutes the city of Itutte, are particularly well qualified for the important trust and should be triumphantly elected. More fit ting men than E. A. Ford, P. J. Brophy and II. A. Gallwey could hardly have been madte. All have long been identified with the business interests of this city and personally are well known to all our citi zens. Butte has reason to lie proud of its splendid public school system, which has no superior in any city of a like size in the union, whereas many cities of more pretensions have schools that are much inferior. It is of the first importance that this degree of perfection shall be main tained and increased if possible. Under the care of such men as Ford, llrophy and (;allwey this would he as sured. They should receive the suffrages of our citizens at the coming election. SHOULD CALM HIMSELF Your military man can always find some terrible peril for the military to combat. Here, for example, is Colonel Kitson, former military attache of the British legation at Washington and at present the head of a military college in England, lifting his warning voice regarding what he calls "Canada's inability to defend her self against the l'nited States." The alarmed colonel points out that the I'nited States regular troops, quartered on the Dol),minion frontier, could, at a mno. ment's notice, invade Canada and seize its r;ailro:tl, ;tand chief strategic points with out serious difficulty. Without better organizaition and an arsenal further from the boundary line than Quebec, Canadians "will never be safe from raids," is the estimation of this eminent BIritish military authority. Perhaps it is not worth while to deny the truth of this, but one may, at least, lint out the albsurdity of the suggestion. in the first place there is no likelihood of two perfeotly friendly countries like the United States and Canada sendlitlg hostile armies acrost, the border. Surely the United States Ilas no such itllention. We are too busy seidinlg capital into Canlada to help awaken to life her slumbllering resources. That will pay its more than war, and be of immense advantage to Canada. (iin the other halnd the 8t,to ,o.,o peIople of the United States are losing no sleep because of any fear that the 6,ltl,l.nl Canadians--a population less thali the single state of Penllsylvania-are likely to invade this country with warlike inlteln ti ,n.. In addition to this let it not he forgot tenl that Representative De Armtoind has suggested the adlvisability of buyinlg Can ada outright and paiing the mitoiney idown. l. t it also bie renelllmte ltrel that a ptromi tett palper of Canada, the iToronto Mail, has net this with a counter prlopositiotn tihat if Mr. lie Arnmil mecains business lie should name the price to be paid, at the snllllm tilme fixing a selling price oin Nesw l";lm.ttl,u1 i anld then tiiher libuy or sell-- or shut up.

'The white aproned gentry who mix the drinks for a thirsty world have been the victims here about of a good many shootings. They have apparently got tired of being mad targets of. Taking thenm as they come bartenders are an amiable folk. It is their business to sell red-eyed trouble to those who seek it andl have the price, but gec: erally speaking they prefer to tread the primrose path of peace themselves. .Mr. \'Watterson declares that Mr. ('!ve land is the only bar to democratic lihar nm,ny. Mr. Clevclatnd is already on recor as s:aying that the Kentucky editor is in harmonious to a disgusting degree. Mr. Bryan says that Cleveland and \Watter.on are the twin evils of the democratic party. If these various and varying opinions are properly mixed, you have a good example of democratic harmony. In the meantime everything is lovely in the republican camp and the outlook for 19o4 grows brighter every day. _ Although New Mexico was denied state hood, the legislature, before adjourning yesterday, appropriated $,o,ooo to provide an exhibit at the St. Louis World's Fair. Differing in still another way from the Montana legislature two of the members had a fight in which one of the legislators was dangerously wounded. SAFE BLOWERS MAKE HAUL Raid a Kentucky Bank and Secure Five Thousand Dollars. Paducah, Ky., March a1.-Robbers early this morning blew open the vault In the bank at Bardwell and secured in the neighborhood of $5,ou0. ''The safe is a total loss, and the charge of powder was so strong that some of the currency, of which there was $a,goo, was burned. The rolbbers escaped. THREE FAMOUS MEN Three men who are taking high rank in American public opinion ..are to. be the_ president's closest companions on his com ing Western trip. Two of them will ec company him on his arduous winter jour. ney through the Yellowstone Natioaal park, and the third will They Will be in charge of the executive office to be Come established for two weeks To Montana. at Livingston. The three gentlemen are Dr. P. M. Rixey, surgeon general of the navy, who accompanied Presiuent MoKinley on his Western tour two years ago; Willia Loeb, Jr., who became secretary to th president on the promotion of George B. Cortelyou to a cabinet portfolio, and John Burroughs, the aged but vigorous poet naturalist, whose recent writings havq brought him into the front rank of Ameriy can prominent men. leslie's Weekly, in a recent issue, con tained the following regarding the presi dent's new secretary, with whom Montana people are soon to become acquainted: "The pathway which, in the cases of Daniel S. Lamont and (eorge B. t.ortel you, led to cabinet ,ositions has been entered, and we hope with a like happy' final outcome, by Mr. William Loeb, Jr.1i who has just been chosen as secretary tq j President Roosevelt, to succeed Mr. Cor, telyou, now the first secretary of commercl and labor. Mr. l.oeb's appointment is a promotion, for he had been acting as assistant to the president's secretary. When Mr. Roosevelt was governor of New York Mr. Loeb was his secretary at Al bany, and later held a similar relation to Vice President Roosevelt. The latter, after his famous wild night ride in the Adirondacks, first learned of President McKinley's death from Mr. Loeb. It is evident that the ability, emclency and tact of the young scribe has won the entire confidence of his chief, as they have the esteem and friendship of many other prominent men. Mr. m.oeb was born in Albany, N. Y., in z866. At the age of sa he had to work for his own living, and he earned the money that carried him through the Albany high school and a course in shorthand. lie afterward became a noted stenographer, and when only as years old was elected official reporter of the New York state assembly. Before entering the service of then Governor rsoosevelt he was successively in the employ of State Sena tor Fassett, Governor Morton, and Lieu tenant Governor Saxton. Thus, by experi ence, as well as native talent, he is welt qualified to make a success of his new post." l)r. P. M. Rixey, in addition to filling the post of surgeon general of the navy, is, the White house physician, and so is re quired to accompany the president on all his trips. It will be remembered that Gen eral L.eonard Wood was White house phy-, sician during the early part Notable in of the first McKinley ad i ministration. lie was suc ceeded by G(eorge M. Stern Profession. berg. surgeon general of the army, who, in turn, and on the advice of Secretary Long, was succeeded by l)r. Presley Marion Rixey. The latter has served as the White house Iphysician ever since. It is a great distinction in the medical profession to be physician at the executive mansion, but Mr. Rixey is more than a medical adviser-he Is the companion and friend of the president. lie is a Virginian hIy birth, born in the town of Culpeplper, July 14, ,85a. His brother is a congress man from his native state. Dr. Rixey was graduated a doctor of medicine from the University of Virginia n 1873. and after passing a brilliant exam ination was commissioned an assistant surgeon of the navy Junre 8, 1874. and has been continuously in the service ever since. Dl)ring the Spani.h American war he achieved distinction while attached to the hospital ship Solace. It is note worthy that he bears the decoration of the Order of Naval Merit from Alfonso XIII of Spain for services rendered the officers and crew of the Santa Maria at the time of the explohion. on that vessel in thie harbor of New York in t8!º). John Ilurroughs of New Yolk. as indi cated by his picture, lhich appeared in the Inter Mountain last evening, is a man r of considerable age, but still very active. lie is both a poet and a naturalist, and it l is said of him that his He Condemns writings "have brought The the Elnglisht reading world nearer to nature, Story Writers. and puts us all under an incalculable obliga gation for wholesome literature and for a love of outdoor life." lie is something of a recluse in New York, hav ing no taste for society and being a man of great modesty. Recently he wrote a scathing magazine article denunciatory of Seaton-Thompsog and other writers of popular animal ato. ries. It is said that this article, full of criticism of the false ideas and false sen timents that make up the writings con deunned, is what attracted the president to the poet-naturalist and resulted in the invitation to accompany the presidential party on the trip.

"Several west-bound trains had been stalled in North Dakota part of a day by a wreck at Medina and the passengers in the emigrants' part of the train had about exhausted their supplies. A carload of home seekers made for the dining car upon the announcement of a mseal. One old hayseed took off his coat and hung it upon the emergency brake. This threw the brake and cutting the train two brought it to a sudden stop. The oiran who had caused the trouble fell over oil the table remarking: 'That's the slow st cngiaer on going.ahead, but he's d ood on.itopping.ý' "Mrs. Brune is getting good houses ywhere and we expect to do equally ll in Butte," added Mr. (tunroe. )tr. iroe ib."*cousin of Aichibald Gras of city and while here is entertained by , kttcr and Mrs. (;ray. , s ABOUT PEOPLE Larry Dobcll, editor of the Helena In drlpenudent, a former Butte newspaper man, is visiting in Butte.

NEW RABBI HEARD Man Who Comes to Butte to Build Jew ish Temple Speaks. In his first sermon to the Jews of Butte Rabbi Harry \veiss spoke eloquently and earnestly last nigh% pleading for united action in church work. The new sjritual head of the local Jewish popu l. ion showed himself to be a strong pulpit orator. His hearers gathered at the Methodist church, South, and filled the rom completely. in clear language and with a directness i' expression that left no doubt as to his meaning, Rabbi Weiss delivered what was really more in the nature of an in tr,,ductory address than a sermon on spiritual topics, To lay the foundation for extensive church work in Butte, a thing for which the Jews of this city have long been striving, was the purport of his sermon. He told how good a start had been made, and he went on to tell some of the things which were neces sary to continue this work. All social differences, he said, should lh, laid aside in this work. The Jew fronm one country should not consider histself superior in any way to the Jew front another. They must unite to per p pctuate the teachings of their religion. The time for this had arrived and should t.ot be permitted to slip away. Too eften o.len fail in this work not because of lack Is i oi opportunity, but because of opportunity let pass. S Services will be held every Friday night at the Methodist church, South. Sunday school will be held at 9:3o every Satur day morning. The Jewish residents of Ilutte hope in the near future to be able to erect a temple in which the services of B'Nai Israel will be conducted. MEANING OF SOCIALISM #, Professor Walter T. Mills Addresses a it Large Audience. Prof. Walter Thomas Mills explained t" the meaning of socialism to an audience ich filled the Grand opera house last ening. Probably the most widely known 1" speaker who is taking the rostrum for the cause today, he held his crowd during the entire evening. Socialism, he said, is not so much F* opposed to capital as it is to poverty. The man who opposes it is the man who' wants to live at the expense of another's labor. The statement that it breaks up the family is not true. Socialism would make conditions such that the poor man Shackelton & Whiteway's Jobbing Department 516 So.

CONFESSED 'HOR9E THIEF Sheriff Wallace Taylor of Teton county was in Butte today on his 'way to the peni tentiary with Jerome Cherette, a young half-breed, who pleaded guilty at Chouteau a few days ago to horse stealing. He is to serve one year in the penitentiary.
