'The grafting is going to be stopped in the city when Mlr. Mueller takes office. You can say that for me. This is a good ticket and it is going to win." John II. Forbis-"If the people of Butte want a good mayor, there is no better or stronger man for the place than Mr. Muel ler. Nobody on earth can assail his char acter. lHe is a man who has served the city and the school district well in the past, and if he is elected he will do tthe anute thing again, uldoubtedly. "It is all a question of what the people of the city want. If they want good gov ernmlent they should elect Mr. Mueller. lie will give it to them, and there are no 1ohn F. Forbis. two w\ays about that. I have 2not can vassed thle sitllatioll Very Imuc, anlld so have no authoritative opinion to express. but the chances look good for his election. If the people want a good mayor they will elect Mr. Mueller." Charles W. Goodale-"l think Mr. Muel ler will make an excellent mayor, and while, having been away and therefo!re de prived of the opportunity of hearing much talk on the subject as yot, I think he has a good chance of election. "Mr. Mueller served so acceptably be fore in the ofllice of mayor, that there seems every reason to elect him again. He made both an excellent mayor and a first-class school trustee. Nobody who appreciates good public service but will favor Mr. Mueller's election. "One thing that I think is deplorable is the effort to make it appear that Mr. Muel ler's campaign is a corporation fight. It seems that if a man happens to be identi fied with or employed by any of the allied companies and takes an interest in poli tics anything lie favors is instantly branded as a corporation interest. "Mr. Mueller has never been identified in the least with the Amalgamated com pany at any time. That is not the case with Mr. Mullins, his anti-trustite oppo nent. The anti-trustites are trying to make it seem that Mr. Mueller is con trolled by corporations. His past shows nothing of the sort. Mr. Mullins, how ever, has been closely identified in every way with the United Copper trust, voting with its party in the legislature and sup porting it in other ways. "If the people are opposed to men run ning for office who are allied with cor porations, thly ought to be opposed to Mr. Mulling. The dliference between the L'nited Copper company, capitalised at $-o,ooo,roo, and the Amalgamated com pany, capitalized at $1S55,oo,ooo, consid _re l as a trust, is diflicult to perceive. T'he Inilired (Copp)er company is a trust us much as the other company, if either is a trust, tiotwithlitatnJing the horror of the anti-trust party for trlusts. "If it is so objectionable that a can dilate for officc hhlull be associated with corporatioins, the anti trust party should set Mr. Mlullins aside. The attitude of that party and it, candidate is positive ly amusing to a man who looks at the matter rightly.

Mo.is. nation, the citizens' party candidates will carry the city without any trouble. "Everybody who wants good govern ment should work for the ticket which has put tip the representative citizens ol Ilutte. Their election will mean a great deal to the city. It will stop a whole lot of the offensive kind of work that has been going on in the city for a long while, antd every citizen of the place should be interested in that. "The talk that I hear is all in favor of Mr. Mueller. lie is a fearless and inde pendent mant, and if he is elected he will give Butte a city government such as it has ntot had for many a clay. I ant strong ly in favor of Mr. Mueller, and the ticket on which he statnds." Joseph ('orby--"i think the laboring people will go very largely for Mr. Mueller for mayor. They understand the sort of gover ln llint the city of Ilutte has had in the past, atnd they are tired of the grafting and misrule. They know that if Mr. Muel ler is elected he will make a decided change, and the get-rich-quick methods of sonic of the mncn who have charge of things here will cocme to a sudden end. "I have talked with many people, and I am not at all surprised to find the strong sentintcct that exists for Mr. Mueller. He is one of the strongest candidates that have entered a municipal election in Butte for ye.ars. Everybody knows himt, and from the public sentiment so freely ex pressed on the streets it is evident that he is a favorite with all classes. "lie is a line business tmcan with an un impeachable record in his private, business and public dealings with his fellow-citi zens, and everybody knows about that. The nen on the hill are not fooled by the statement that he is owned or influenced by corporations. They all know that when he said that he bought his own collars the statement was true." Charles R.

To my mind, the , .tion whether in national pnlitics Mr. ..llher is a democrat or a republican or SI s tuliat is quite immaterial. Without :,,v disp:ragcment of the other gentle I I hl arc 'andidates for mayor, it S",, ti, lne probable that Mr. Mueller, t his business and public experience, S,.: st man.

Mils Florence L.indley, a school teacher of Brown county, Kansas, years ago made hip her mind that there were great possi lilities in the Indian territory. So she raved her salary and bought 7- lots in the little town of Sapulpa, paying the Indian owner a trifle under $4 for each lot. The Indian rued his action, and when the courthouse and many real estate records were burned not long ago he brought suit. claiming the young woman never had paid him. At the trial, after he had testified under oath that the land was not paid for, Miss I.indley brought forward his receipt for the amount in full, which she had pre served. The Indian is on trial for per jury. The town lots in question are valued at not less than $ts,ooo. . . . . .. . FRATERNAL ORDER OF EAGLES IS BUSILY PREPARING FOR MEETING Convention Scheduled for April 8-9 Is to Mark an Epoch in Annls of Order in Montana. There is plenty doing at the headquar ters of the Fraternal Order of Eagles in the Butte hotel, making preparations for the receiving of the delegates and guests of the convention which is scheduled for .April 8 and 9. The committee on ar rangetments is doing a great deal of work at present engaging music and one thing aI another for the entertainment of the tue,ts during the time they are in the This meeting will be the state con a, 1ti,1n for this year. \t the grand annual meeting of all the atwtes of the world, fourth annual ses -i,. on June 4, S, 6 and 7 of last year, hL.l at Minneapolis, it was enacted that S:,,I state should be authorized to hold a elate convention under the call of the st t,, deputy grand president. The object of these conventions is to cement snore c' lty the different series and bring about a more general understanding of the needs , the, order throughout the state. The next grand aerie will be held in ', w York and it is for the purpose of a iL , arrangements for this that the S convention is being called. It is thought that by bringing the members of the order from all over the state into o.i big convention the wishes of each aerie will be considered and all of the a rica in the state of Montana can act unitcedly in making arrangements and ap pointing delegates to the grand aerie. None but past presidents of series are entitled to a seat in the state convention t ith the exception of one delegate extra ordinary, who is selected from the floor of each aerie and elected by the vote of the local members.

New York, March 3o.-A Washington dispatch to the sierald is as follows: President Roosevelt is daily being warned of fearful disasters which fate holds in store for him during his forth coming Western trip. A telegram arrived at the war department today addressed to "Secretary of State E. Root," and, although Mr. Root is secretary of war and not of state, he opened it, and this is what he read: "Do not allow the president to travel on March 8a, 29 and jo. His life will be in danger of explosion, railroad accident, fire arms and elevators on these three days, especially west of Washington, caused by the eclipse of the sun and Mars in their equinox. "Prof. Pfuhl, i.os Angeles, Cal." The signature to the telegram led Sec retary Root to believe it was a practical joke rather than one of the numerous let ters received from cranks. From a well-known weather sharp the president has received a special forecast which admonishes him to beware of mie teorulogical conditions at all time during his trip. Until the middle of May the weather man declares the weather will be almost tropical, but at that time there will be a decided change, marked by thunder storms of most severe character and fol lowed by blizardllike weather. Despite th'.se gloomy forebodings the preparations for the trip are going merrily on. ABOUT BUTTE Orton Bros. Pianos and organs. Mr. G. II.
