The MQO tans Elks captured a $3,ooo prize for making the best appearance in the parade. It became a question what to do with this money. It was decided for the gen eral good of the order that it would be wise to form an essentially state organiza tion, and this was done at Helena last year. The state organization corresponds 'n a measure to the state meetings of other lodges except that it cannot make any changes in the constitution and by-laws governing the order which are provided by the grand lodge. The order of Elks is constantly grow Ing in Montana and other states, and in Butte, where the lodge is unusually strong, there is considerable local pride shown in the success of next month's meeting here. CITY ASKED TO PAY $20,000 Woman Who Fell on Sidewalk Says She Was Badly Hurt. The prospect of another damage suit is staring the city officials in the face. This time the city is asked to surrender $So,ooo for personal injuries alleged to have been sustained by Mrs. John J. Sul livan. She has filed a claim for this amount with the city clerk through her attorney, John if. Baldwin. The complaint alleges that Mrs. Sullivan fell on the sidewalk in front of 307 East Granite street, June t4, of this year, while walking with her husband. A defect in the sidewalk caused her to fall. She was in delicate health, she says, which caused her to he prematurely ill and to suffer great mental anguish and bodily pain. If the city rejects the claim, it is ex pected a suit for the amount claimed will be instituted in the district court. TWO NEW REBEKAH LODGES Mrs. David Meiklejohn, Organizer, Re turns to Butte From Trip. Two new Rebekah lodges have been organised in the state, one at Darby and one at Bonner, their organization having been effected by Mrs. David Meiklejohn, who has just completed a tour of the IRebekah lodges of the western and east ern parts of the state. Mrs. Melklejohn reports there are 45 Rebekah lodges in Montana and that the fund for the proposed Odd Fellows' home for orphans of the order at Butte con tains $14,ooo. The ladies of the Rebekah have raised most of the money and have plans to raise more. The Rebekah lodges are reported as be ing in a prosperous condition, by Mrs. Meiklejohn, who is the state president of the assembly. General Denial Is Made. The Butte & Boston Mining company makes a general denial of the matter con tained in the answer filed in the district court by the Geyman Mining company in reply to the company's suit for damages for ore extracted from the Harrington placer ground and for trespass. The Butte & Boston's replication, whick has been filed In the district court, sets up that the plaintiff company is prepared to prove every one of the allegations set forth in its complaint. City Gets Street Deeds. The city has received the deeds for Park, Galena, Henry and Emmet streets, in the vicinity of the Columbia lode, and can now proceed with grading those streets. The territory covered by the Col umbia extends from Excelsior west to Emmet and between Park and Mercury streets. It is expected grading of Park between Excelsior and Emmet will begin soon. This will give the McKinley school the advantage of street grades and walks. Week Lnding Excursions via Great Nor* thern Railway.

TELLS OF COMING OF DEATH Log Kept by Castaway Sailor Taken to San Franoisco. BY ASSOCIATED PRESS, San Francisco, July 3.-The fate of William Ode, who was left behind as watchman on the wreck of the schooner Courtney Ford, which ran ashore on Isen back, Alaska, September so, last, is told in dramatic language by the log kept by the unfortunate man, which has just reached here. It was found beside his deadbdyb revenue cutter officers. He had t down the happenings of a quarter giving a complete calendar of events, all leading to the one end--the extinguishment of William Ole, sailor. When the Courtney Ford was wrecked the cautain and surviving merniers of tho crew were picked up and landed in Se. attle, leaving Ode behind until relief was sent to him. 'Thi, only happened a few days when the schooner Carrie and Annie, with wrecking apparatus on board left for Isenheck, too late, however, to ix: of sery* ice to the sailor, who had watched in vain for her approach.

BIRTHS OF BABES ARE NOT REPORTED CITY PHYSICIAN SULLIVAN SAYS THE DOCTORS OF BUTTE ARE NEGLIGENT. The city health board has again been reminded of defects in the city health ordinances. This time it is the failure of doctors to promptly report births. The matter was called to the attention of Dr. Sulli van by a call received from John Paul, leader of Butte's Assyrian colony. The latter told a story that might be woven into a slever yarn. 14 was in effect that an Assyrian woman deserted her hluslcd and left In his possession a young baby. The deserted husband became suspicious the child was not his and the case was laid before I)r. Sullivan in the hope of his learning from the birth reported when the child was born. The doctor, who claimed the child was that of the woman who disappeared and the man with whom it had been left, had not reported the case. It appears the doctors do not promptly report thevo birth cases, because the ordinance does not make It obligatory on them to do so. A correction of the defects in the ordl. nance is what is needed, Dr. Sullivan says. FOURTH OF JULY EXCURSIONS VIA GREAT NORTHERN RAILWAY.
