FAIR SEX HAVE AN
INTEREST IN FIGHT Will Get Out and Vote for the Sohool Trustees, as They Are Entitled to Do. COULD HAVE HAD WOMAN UPON TICKET THIS YEAR Defeat of Lady Candidate a Few Years Ago Somewhat Dampened the Ardor of the Ladies, but They Are Up Again fNow and Will Take an Active Interest in the Campaign Now Initiated. It is sometimes a matter not to be regretted that two tickets for school trus tees are put in the field. it has the effect of arousing the patrons of the schools to the importance of a school board. In this city there are two sets of candidates now before the public, Consequently every man and woman is more or less interested in the coming election. For the first time in the history of Butte a majority of the registration agents are women. So it is not to be wondered at that the women are more than casually interested. ' his fact alone has seemed to revive an interest that was somewhat allayed a few years ago. Then one woman was nominated as candidate on a ticket that was defeated. Because of this many of the women voters of the city gave up In despair. But defeat at that time did not mean anything against the most estimable woman who was a candidate. She was defeated, not because she was a woman, but she evidently was on the wrong ticket. Could Have Gotten On. It is conceded by both parties that it would have been quite possible to have had a woman placed on the tickets this year had anyone suggested it in time. In consequence of the feeling of good fellow ship now existing all women in the city are taking a more active interest in the election of school trustees. In almost every precinct in the city the gentler sex are turning out in large num bers to register. Each day these fair ones are learning more and nmore to understand their importance in the conduct of the schools. A large majority of the teachers are women, a majority of the pupils gradu ating each year are girls, and the moral effect of the school is felt in every depart ment of society. Therefore it is not to be wondered at that those women wno are qualified to vote are registering. It may be safely predicted that the women will cast a larger vote for trustees in this city than ever before.

APPLICATION AND EN FORCEMENT OF BILL Aims to Prevent Unjust Disorimination and is the Outcome of the Thought Taken by the Administration to Elim inate the Evils Consequent Upon the So-oalled Trusts-Its Tenor. Instructions have been received at the various railway offices in the city regard ing the application and enforcement of the new Elkins railway law, which has caused a stir in railway circles all over the country. Thes instructions state that the passenger agents of the companies are to observe strictly all the conditions of the new legislation. By the requirements of the Elkins law all stop-over, half-rate tickets, excursion tickets, complimentary passes, and, in fact, everything but the straight ticket rate pub lished, shall be discontinued. This prac tically does away with the necessity of keeping up any general agent's office, as the tickets sold will be the same as those that can always be procured at the depots. Are Honorable Men. In an official bunlltin issued by the In terstate commerce committee is quoted an interview with one of the members of the commission as published in the Record Herald of Chicago. The member says: "Any suggestion from any quarter that the administration has not acted or does not intend to act in the utmost good faith and is not influ enced by conscientious motives, is entirely unfounded and unwarranted. I believe that the president and attorney general are very amuch in earnest about this anti trust legislation, as it is called, and that the members of the committees who have it in charge are actuated by ant honorable and patriotic desire to correct the evils that have been apparent to everyone for so long. The president, the attorney gen eral, Senator Elkins and Mr. Hepburn have appreciated the defects in the orig inal law, which operated practically to prevent the cnforcnent of its criminal provisions. What They Appreciated. "They also appreciated, a many have not, the advantages secured by the so. called trusts and other large shippers through the payment of rebates and other manipulation of the published rates. They have likewise perceived the fact that this matter is unquestionably within the control of congress and that the strengthening of the law in these particulars involve no question of constitutional authority. "The first step, therefore, in applying legal remedies to the evils attending mod ern colmbinations was to prevent the en joyment by the larger shippers of a public service on terms more favorable than those accorded to smaller shippers and the public generally." FRANK UAIN GOES BACK TO BASTILE TRUSTY GETS ON A HURRAH AND IS SENT TO COUNTY JAIL IN VERY HIGH SPIRITS.

SACKETT CASE STILL ON IN THE FEDERAL COURT Former Deputy Treasurer of Deer Lodge County is Among the Witnesses to Be Called Today. The trial of the case of Clara Sackett against Mary and Joseph McCaffery, in volving a town lot in Anaconda, was not concluded in the federal court yesterday afternoon, as the examination of witnesses took up more time than expected. The case may reach the jury this evening. The jury heard plenty of argument to day after the only two witnesses called had testified. The arguments came upon a point raised by the defense asking for an instruction to the jury. The erguments had not been concluded when court ad journed for noon and were resumed this afternoon. George O. Johnson, formerly deputy treasurer of Deer Lodge county, and Levi Davis, an Anaconda abstractor, were the only witnesses examined. They were called by the plaintiff.. Johnson testified that he saw the record soon after the declaratory statement was filed and it was a clean record, Mr. Davis said that he had made an abstract of the title soon after the declaratory statement was ftiled and be did not notice the value placed therein. W. B. Rogers of counsel for the defense then asked the court to instruct the jury to the effect that if the defense is entitled to the lot under the homestead act the defense is entitled to the whole lot and not a portion, regardless of the fact that a portion might be leased. The attorney spoke for an 'hour or more and was fol lowed by counsel for the plaintiff. DOZEN HURT IN A WRECK Defective Frog Causes Six Coaches to Tip Over--Cut by Glass.

Alone and without money John Hayes, formerly an inmate of the state insane asylum, died in a little cabin at 439 South Ohio street. His body was found yester day afternoon. lie had been dead three or four days. In the belief of Coroner Egan and the employes at Lawrence Duggan's under taking rooms, where the body was taken, death resulted from natural causes. Hayes had been doing odd jobs about C. W. Ryan's saloon at the corner of Wyoming street and Anaconda road. The fact that he did not appear for four days led to the search which resulted in the discovery of the corpse. This was lying on the right side with the bedclothes drawn over it and undis turbed. Every appearance bore out the theory of death from heart failure, due to excessive drinking perhaps and lack of proper food. An inquest will be held this evening. Further than the fact that Hayes for. merly worked at Rocker on the section, little is known of his identity.

A Tribute to Hewitt. [Dr. Raymund before the Americaln I.sti tute of Mining Ingicieers.l "In each generation it is givcn to, a few so to live that when they die a corm.lnon sorrow sets anew the seal of humlan brotherhood. In places iwhere their,, fret have never trod, in homes never )cright ened by their presence, conies a s..lie of loss like the shadow of a cl1A d a pass ing cloud--for soon all that they were, all for which they lived and labored lhines again with clearer ilght in, the memories that mien cherish. Among the few who in this generalion have belonged not to one coniciunity, but to all conl mnunitics- not to one class, but to hiumlan. ity is Abraiti S. Ilewitt. W\ithout pre tense, without self sreeking, he became a leader in the thought and activities of his age. And the ever-widening circle of his illlnfluence showed in every part the touch of a great spirit, of a life enlnobled and exalted by those aims that never fail to gain the recognltion of reverent and grate ful affection. He could not have won and kkept his large place in the modern world without rare ability in practical allairs. That ability was his by inheritance and training. Given five talents, with them he gained other five talents. lie could think clearly and comprehensively, could plan broadly and act aggressively. lie could bring things to pass that others only dreamed; but lie is remembeired to day not so much for his deeds as for him self-for his honesty that was never chal lenged-for the purity that was never tarnished-fur the Sense of honor that was never lost; and more than all else, for the charity that never failed. The tribute which we pay to his memory is a tribute to the merchant and financier, the publicist, the patron of the arts and sciences, the statesman, the philanthropist, the Christian citizen-Abram S.
