ANACONDA NOT THE CULPRIT Smelters in Big Copper Camp Are Blamed for Distress of the Ranchers. SP(ECIAL. TO TIE INTER MOUNTAIN. Anaconda, July 2J.-And now comes the information from Deer Lodge valley that the smoke evil is still doing business at the old stand and that clouds of sulphur and arsenic-laden smoke are abroad in the land. Still the Washoe smelting plant at this city is closed down and no smoke has corne from the six big stacks for days. Farm ers driving in from the valley marvel at this. They come expecting to see the works rmnning full blast, since they have felt and tasted the smoke, but when they get here they find that not a pound of ore has been treated since the shut down. They, and all others who are observing the situation, now realize that the Ana conda plant is not the only culprit. There is but one place from which the prevailing smoke can come, and that is IButte. That it comes from the smelters of that city there is no mannelr of doubt. Yesterday the smoke was as thick as at any time in the history of the valley at the upper and lower Williamsn ranches; in Silver Bow canyon, at the Walter Staton ranch near Willow creek and as far down as Race Track. In fact the effects of the smoke are felt to within a few miles of Deer I.odge, ac cording to today's reports, and possibly further down than that. From Butte there is a natural draught that takes the smoke into the Deer Lodge valley. Silver Bow creek flows down its valley from the great mining camp and into the Deer l.odge river. There is a course for the smoke in the same direction and also over that low divide known as the Hump. Once in the valley the prevailing currents of wind carry the smoke well into the valley, just as those same currents carry the smoke from Anaconda. It is a peculiar situation and one which puts a new phase on the situation. Of course, it will have not the slightest effect on the work now in progress here to elim inate the smoke evil from the Anaconda works. The company operating those works is as desirous as ever of abolishing the nuis ance and is pushing the work on the huge and expensive system of flues with all rapidity. DOG AND PONY SHOW IS TO BE HERE FRIDAY Tented Aggregation is In Butte Today Said to Be the Greatest Animal Show Now on the Road. SPECIAL TO Tilt INTER MOUNTAIN. Anaconda, July s.-The Norris & Rowe dog and pony show, in Butte today, will be in Anaconda Friday. The coming to town of a tented exhibition is always of more or less importance to a large number of people. The days of the sawdust arena, popcorn and red lemonade are as wel. come now as when Dan Rice, the famous clown, was in the element of hie glory so years ago. Since then, however, conditions have changed and the performance of the skillful gymnasts and wonderful trained animals of the present are a vastly different proposition from the dinky circus of old John Robinson's day. Show day now means something more than an excuse for parents to take the children to see the elephant and laugh at the Jokes of the painted clown. They are educational events, especially when the attraction is Norris & Rowe's big shows, which will be here Friday. Amusements of all kinds have had to show peat improvement during the past decade to keep pace with the times and to satisfy the constant cry of the people for something new. It is a well established fact that Norris & Rowe's aggregation is the most progressive show that exhibits in the West. Each year this great show has shown great advancement both in magnitude and merit and give their patrons more for their money. This time they promise in addition to the greatest trained animal show in the world a high class vaudeville and circus performance by a carefully selected company of the very best aerial gymnasts, tumblers, riders and Japanese acrobats and Jugglers. FUNERAL SERVICES TODAY SPECIAL TO TEll INTER MOUNTAIN. Anaconda, July sa.-The funeral of the late John C. Sullivan took place this morning at St. Paul's Catholic church, services being held at 8:jo o'clock. The ceremony was under the auspices of the Mill and Smeltermen's union.

GENERAL ADVANCE IN TOBACCO RATES MANUFACTURERS HAVE PUT UP PRICES AND THE JOBBERS I-AVE TO PAY FOR IT. NO MORE FOR CONSUMER Man Who Smokes Will Not Have to Pay, But the Retail Dealer Will Find His Sales Lees Profitable. SPECIAL. TO TILE INTER MOUNTAIN. Anaconda, July a2.-Although it does not affect the cost price of the manu factured goods to the consumer, there has' recently been a general advance in the pI ice of tobaccos to cigarmakers and re tail tobacco dealers. "The prices of leaf tobaccos, which we use in the manufacture of cigars," said an Anaconda cigar manufacturer today, "has advanced on an average about 7 per cent. The rise on some kinds of leaf has becn more and on some others less than that, but 7 per cent is abuot the average." Consumers Do Not Lose. "l)Does th~is come out of the consumers?" was asked. "Not at all," was the reply. "The prices of the cigars will remain the same; It will cost us more to make them, that is all." While there has been no advance made by johhers on the various standard srands of smoking and chewing tobaccos that are retailed, the dealer's profit is cut down in anlother way. The jobbers have for a long time followed the custom of throw ing in on an order, several free packages. This applied to goods like Durham, Seal of No.th Carolina and other popular brands of tobaccos. No More "Velvet." The money they received on the sale of these free packages was clear "velvet" to the dealer. Now these free packages have all been cut out; no more free hunches go hereafter and the dealer's profit is reduced accordingly. Consequently there is quite a roar among some dealers. Just how long the present advance will be in effect, no body can tell.
