Western Union Intends to
Hire Them to Carry
the Messages.
Expect to Have Petticoated
Messengers on Street
in Near Future.
Despite Announcement,
the Company IStill in
Need Male Help.
"We still intend to use young women as
messengers." said Manager Posey of the
Vestern lUnion today. "They may be put
to work at any tome now, possibly within
two or three days. The girls will all be
over 16 years of age and consequently old
enough to take care of themselves. We do
not intend to put any infants or tots to
work at the business of delivering mes
sages. It is necessary that we have some
one to do this work and we think that the
girls can do it all right. It has been tried
succes.sfully in other places. We have re
ceived no protests or communications in
regard to this matter from anyone. At
prtesent we cannot complain of the way
things are going. With us things are go
ing swimmingly."
Nevertheless in the papers today adver
tisements again appear asking for able
bodied men to work for $5 per day, and
telling them to make inquiries at the of
fices of the Western Union. Great ex
citement prevailed among the striking mes
sengers today when it was rumored on the
streets that the feminine carriers would be
at work 4before nightfall, and there was
some talk of mobbing the office if such a
course was attempted. However it does
not seem likely that the company will put
the young women to work today, as no ar
rangements have been made to that end at
the \Western Union office.

La Crosse, Wis., April 4.-The presi

8:jo o'clock this morning. President
Roosevelt was met at the depot by a com
mittee headed by Congressman Each,
Mayor Borchert, C. S. Van Aken and
Joseph Clark.
All approaches to the depot were roped
off for a block in each direction. Four

companies of the Wisconsin National
Guard were lined up on either side of
Second street, leading to the depot, where
the carriages were in waiting for the presi
dential party. The first three carriages
were elaborately trimmed in red, white
and blue, and the horses were gaily dec
orated with ribbons to match.
When the president stepped from the
train he remarked on the beautiful day
and said he had a good night's rest and
was feeling well.

The route of the parade extended over

Course of Republican Candidate May Be Judged From
His Former Term of Office.
Ilenry Muellcr's candidacy for mayor
has brought out reminiscences of his
previous administration, and many a
compliment is paid him on the score of
the many excellent achievements of his
term in office at that time. It is over
ten years since then, and still the good
service he rendered the city and his fel
low citizens has not been forgotten by
the men who were close to him in the
city governmer.t and the many others who
were directly or indirectly affected by it.
One of the noteworthy events of that
administration was the building of the
big stone culvert on the East side, which
ran from Granite street to Copper, be
tween Wyoming and Arizona. The con
duit was constructed at the urgent re
quest of the two aldermen from the First
ward at that time, one of whom was ex
Mayor P. II. Harrington.
The construction of the culvert was de
sired by the residents of the east side,
so that the gulch might be filled in. There
was a crying need for it, but the city
treasury was empty.
He Was Determined.
That obstacle did not stop Mayor
Mueller and the council that rerved with
him, however. The culvert was built, and
the citizens of the East side rejoiced.
At that time the Anaconda mines were
closed or partly closed and there were
many miners out of employment, and a
demand was made on Mr. Mueller that
the work be done by day labor and not let
out by contract, in order that the idle
miners might get the benefit of the work.
That was contrary to custom, but Mr.
Mueller and his board of city councilmen
rose above custom, and for the good of
the community had the work done by the
miners, employing them by the day.
That was not all that the citizens' can
didate for the mayoralty at this election
did the miners. As has been said, there
were no funds in the city treasury, and
the law required that when such was the
case warrants drawn against the city
should be registered and paid when funds

James Barnes, Who Escaped, Taken
Back to Warm Springs.
James Barnes, who was sent to the insane
asylum from Butte, February is, poss, escaped
frem that inettuties sau eams here last night.
He entered the sherirs offlee sad asked if he
was wanted. He said he had walked to
Anaoanda from Warm Springs and came here
nea a freight train. He was locked up and
today the sherif learned that Barnes had told
the truth. Barnes has been a sort of trusty
around the asylum. A deputy sheriff took him
to Warm Spria this afternoos,
mass of people. The police arrangements
were of the best and there was no delay
getting to the market square, where a bis
stand had been erected.
A large crowd was gathered on the
market square. Mayor Joseph Buehert
welcomed the president in behalf of the
city of La Crosse, in a short address.
The president's speech was frequently
Interrupted by applause. lie extended a
greetini to the people of La Crosse, as
peclally to the old veterans ,a large num
ber of whom were among the hearers. He
compared the war of s861-65 to that with
Spain and said that while his command
ers of the lesser war did not have as big
a job to do they did it; but the trouble
was there was not enough war to go
He then discussed the virtues of good
citizenship and referred to portions of his
speech delivered at Waukesha, regarding
citizens of America speaking ill of other
natiions. The crowd along the route back
to the depot was the largest ever seen in
La Crosse.
should come in. Ily that syste'm tit.
niin rs either had to, w ait itiretinitely for
their money or discount the warrants with
money lenders. IThe tcutomtl was to ec5ASI
the checks with the Ia;tter at a discount, as
the men could not wait.
His Sense of Justice.
lut Mr. fuclh. r was dletrmtinted fha
the miners who lbtilt the ditch and were
entithle to their full pay Ihtull iget every
cent out of it and not have to wait. 'Itit
was thte sort of atn executive he was. atn
that was the regard in which he held hi,
trust as mayor. He felt that it was his
duty to take care of his fellow citizens
and deal to them exact justice in every
particular of the administratiron of the
city governmnenlt.
Therefore he and the city council, wio
acted in accordance with Mr. Mueller's
views, borrowed the money to pay
miners from the Clark bank and patd
them in full, the city paying interest 0a
the iorrowed money, thereby properly
shouldering its just obligation to pay its
employes in the humblest capacity in full
for their services.
Revoked a Franchise.
Another incident of Mr. Mueller's ad
ministration of the city government was
his revoking of the franchise granted to
the water company by the previous ad
ministration because the company did not
live up to the terms of the grant. The
certified check of the water company for
*$o,ooo was declared forfeited, and it
was not redeemed till Mayor Mantle's
term of office. During that time the com
pany contracted with the city to give the
latter a certain number of free hydrants
for two years and the check was released.
It now hangs in the office of the company
in a frame.
These incidents indicate to the people
who were not in Butte at the time Mr.
Mueller was in office the kind of a mayor
he made in the past, and what may be ex
pected from him now if he is again ele
vated to the office.
