EIGHT-HOUR DAY FOR POLICE
Believed That the Short Shift Will Never
Be Abandoned.
The eight hour day for the police force
probably has cosme to stay.
At the meeting of the police committee
of the city council last night it was dem
onstrated that the new schedule is giv
ing complete satisfaction; in fact the de
partment is being handled better than
under the old ia-hour a day plan.
While there may be a slight increase
in the cost to the taxpayers, the result
ing benefit to the entire force is believed
to more than offset this.
The committee discussed the question
of policing the west side, which is a large
territory. Some claim *there is a lack of
policemen to properly cover the west side.
The light, license, paving and sprink
ling committees also met and discussed
various matters to be reported to the
council tomorrow night.
ROADS ARE IN GOOD SHAPE
County Commissioners Report on Thor
oughfares in the Country.
The county commissioners report that
the roads they recently inspected are in
good condition.
The big bridge on the Big Ilole river
known as Dickey's bridge needs repairing
very sadly.
When Deer Lodge county took a share
of Silver Bow county recently this bridge
was left just inside the Silver low county
line, the Deer Lodge people evidently being
bent on side stepping the expenses of re
pairing the structure.
NOTHING TOO GOOD FOR BUTTE.
One of our leading fancy grocery stores
has just received a consignment of the
celebrated "TILI.MAN'S FINE FLAVOR
ING EXTRACTI'S AND PURE SPICES."
These goods are recognized as being
about the finest product that a merchant
can buy, but modesty and a disbelief in
free advertising prevent us front naming
the store that has them for sale.

PORPHYRY STREET
IS NOW FENCED IN
MRS. LIZZIE HOPKINS BRINGS
BITTER DISPUTE TO
A CRISIS.
COUNCIL MAY TAKE ACTION
Thoroughfare Is Made Impassable by
Reason of the Wooden
Obstruction,
And now Porphyry street has been
fenced.
,Mrs. Lizzie Hlopkins, who owns the
Mary Louise lode mining claim in Por
phyry between Wyoming and the alley
east, has completely barricaded the street
with a high fence. The fence makes the
street as impassable as though it were one
of the famous Spanish trochns that the
American army encountered in Cuba.
The matter will probably be laid before
the city council tomorrow night, as the
fence is working a hardship on teamsters
and others who daily use the thorough
fare.
It appears that the city has never ac
quired title to the portion of the street
covering Mrs. I-Hopkins' mininng claim.
Site recently sought a settlement with
the city, but the price she asked for the
property was considered exorbitant and
no settlement was effected.
Mrs. Hopkins has decided to bring miat
ters to an issue I,y putting up thet fence.
HORSE STEALING IS CHARGED
Patrick Leahy, Alias Edward Hershey, to
Be Tried.
A complaint charging Patrick l.eahy,
alias Edward Hershey. with horse stealing
has been issued from the county attorney's
office at the request of Stock Inspector
Collins, who arrested Leahy on Sunday.
The defendant is accused of stealing a
horse belonging to Dan Harrington. He
will be examined in Justice Taylor's
court.
As a rule a man will feel well satisfied
if he can hobble around on crutches two
or three weeks after sprainining his ankle,
and it is usually two or three mIotths be
fore he has fully recovered. This is an
unnecessary loss of time. for in many
cases in which Chamberlain's Pain halmt
has been promptly and freely applied, a
complete cure has been effected in less
tIhan one week's timne, and inr some cases
within three days. For sale by Paxon &

NO MONEY TO BE SPENT
Northern Pacific Will Make No Improve
ments in Spokane.
No extensions and additions are to ,be
made to the Northern Pacific shops iln
Spokane this year. This announcement
is officially made, and the reason given
is that the bids submitted for the pro
posed structures are considered exorbi
tant, says the Spokane Spokesman-Review.
Local officials of the company had loug
been desirious of making additions to the.
company's buildings in the freight yards
and adjoining the roundhouses, and had
at last secured authority from headltuar
ters for the improvements.
When the bids were opened it was found
that the contractors demanded much more
for the work than had been expected.
The increased cost of material and thi.
recent increase in wages of mlen of t!he
building trades caused tile high bids,
The cuompany rejected all bids and de
cided to make the presellt structures do
for the present. Superintendent leamner
said yesterday that had the imllprovements
been mlade they would have mneant not
only a large expenditure by the comllpany
for the buildings, but would have in
creased the shops here to an extent which
would have resulted in a greater nunllber
of employes here and a corresponllin ly
larger payroll.
ICE CREAM FOR NEWSBOYS
Little Merchants Have All Kinds of Fun
at a Meeting.
At a meeting of the Ncwshodys' club
last night the mneimblers were ilade happy

If there is any one thing that a boy
loves better than another it is ice cream.
and these little fellows had plenty last
night.
There was an excellent program pre
sented, which was enjoyed by the audi

A couple of hymns were sung by the
audience and a numbner of boys gave reci
tations, while others sang songs.

FEATURES FOR GREAT FAIR
Idaho and Utah Will Have Features at
the Exposition.
Idaho and Utah have decided upon the
features for their mining displays at the
St. Iouis exposition in lle Palace of
Mires and Metallurgy. Both of the dis
plays are expected to attract great act.
telnt ion
A monioster nugget of silver, weighing
imore than a toil, the largest single piece
of silver ore ever tkeni fromln the grouuld,
will be one of the features Idaho will dis
play.
Another displlay will lie shown in the
"n .tinig gulch." This will reveal tIlhe ini
p)ortance of the wonderful opal uitic'ns of
Idaho. Trhese Iprecicus stones are fo()Iun
in the north centrcal and southwesternl
sectionls of the stlate.
A feature of Italh's showingl will Ihc a
miniatuiire conlcentlrator. The machine,
built ocf liurnished steel, coppelr and silver,
occupying a space I4x.lo feet, aind e
tirely covered with a glass casce, will Ic.
the center of the I'tlh exhilbit. It is a
workicng moldel amcl ill lie in operationl
during the fair.
The cre that supplllies the grist for this
wondlerful machineli will h nmined ilc
cUtah and trliansferred to the World's fair
grounds, where great ore cruslhrs ~ill
grind up the Ihuge boulers and sm:cll
pebbcles and reduce the cmass to fine siand.
This process will take place in the o:ut
door mining exhibit space and the sanl
will be conveyed from there to the con
centrator.
Ilere it enters a large trough and the
electric power that moves the machine is
applied. The large trough vibirates, and
the sand flows dow o the incline to a plat
fornm where it sp.readst out and is vio
lently shaken, Then it passes on to an
other troughl, mnd through it to lanother
pIlatforim, where it is carried upl in
buckets to higher pladtforlms, and the
shaking process is repeated. So on
throtugh thie big machines, with imany
cradles.
The heavier metals are thus separateJ
from the mixture, gold being cthe' first to
free itself from the mass, aLd tilte shill
ing particles pour in a tiny streamcl into
a receptacle, where they slowly accumu
late. Copper is conveyed to another level,
lead to another, and the sand, with all
the valuale ores extracted, is conIveyed
to a large bin,, where it is carted to the
dump.
MANY MORTGAGES RECORDED
Documents on File in Books of Clerk to
Go to Assessor.
There are 120 mortgages recorded on
thie lbooks of the county clerk, and they
will reach in value about $250o,oo. They
will be placed on the assessor's books and
taxed like other property. Upon a show
ing that they have been cancelled and the
payment of the cancellation fees, the tax
will be annulled.
-Murphys ,Make Denial.
In the suit brought by Mary Leonard
against John and Wim. Murphy to recover
$,00oo damages on the ground that the
Murlphys beat and bruised her, both de
fendants have field answers denying that
they ever touched her. The Murphys
ask to be dismissed with their costs.

INTELLIGENT MOUSE
Old Mother Filled Up Hole and Saved
Her Children.
VWhen we thilk of miice It it is usually of
the trouble they tcause us; we are not apt
to credit the rdetil with itmuch intclli
getne." said a lady of the sewingl circle;
"llut I recently had ill experience which
shows that the little creaitures possess a
good bit of wisdom, after all. I had been
iannoyed for soe tihe by a famitly of imice
which lived in the walls by the bedroomi.
They i i lled mlly clothes, disturbed tmy
sleept, anll wheni they grew soi bold as to
go hito the cainary's cge atnd eat tipt its
seeld liy patiet ice gave out and I deter
mined to lix themll. I bought a trap and
set it by the hoile it the wall. For five
nights I cauight it mouse, then several days
prosed wi thout ratchirg oine, tillhotlh they
were still there, for they kept iup their
noise, although not coming into illy roonm
any more,
"I foutind that the trap was all right, but
the hole in the walt hid bleti closed from
iiside. I tIlled the filling out. It was not
easy work, for it had been evideiitly put
there to stay, and was made of hitts of
plaster aslu rubbish. I kept the hole open
with thle trap close to it, but next day It
was filled again, I repeated this clearing
out process five times, and five tites the
filling was replaced, It was evidently the
work of the mother mouse to prevent her
little ones from passing through what had
proved a tatal gate to so many, And I left
the hole closed, for the mice did not come
into my room again."--Ncw York Times.
