Helena, Oct. 7.-A full program on en tertainments for the Butte and Anaconda delegations tomorrow, Butte Day, has been arranged. It is expected that at least 1,ooo people will come from the metropolis and the Smelter City. Their special train will be met at the depot by special trains to the fair grounds and the visitors will be whirled right out to the fair without loss of time. Among the entertainments planned is a livestock parade, in' which all the stock on exhibition will be led about the track. Right after the parade, the judges will begin to make awards on horses and sad dle-horses, which are numerous and inter esting. The stock display is unusually fine. Odell, the high, diver, will then follow with his perilous feat, which never fails to elicit the wonder and admiration of the crowd. A vaudeville show, acrobats, songs aind dance tirns, etc., will then be given in front of the grandstand. Bronoho Busting. The exhibition of broncho busting by Jake Ross of Toston, is to follow. Ross is one of the famous busters of the North west. He took a gold medal in Helena in :88a for riding the famous Belgarde bull. He has ro wild horses of his own, and in addition, bets he can ride anything brought him. The ladies' relay races and the regular races will be pulled off as usual. The weather man has relented. The stormy and disagreeable weather which has marred the two days of the State Fair has abated somewhat, and today the man up in the Power block, who presides over the destinies of the weather, is trying to make a record for himself. Old Sol Smiles. The sun is shining brightly, the high wind has abated and the weather condi tions are generally more favorable. The milder weather is having the effect of at tracting many visitors to the fair ground. Incoming trains last night brought many people to Helena from all parts of the state, and the attendance today is expect ed to be a record breaker. This is children's day and the little ones are present in large numbers. The Helena public schools were closed for the day and special rates were offered school children and the teachers. ,The first train which went down to the fair grounds at i a. m, was crowded with youngsters, their parents and school marns. The following trains carried large numbers, until at noon 4,000 were on the ground. A line of 'busses to the grounds is also carrying a large number of visitors, both young and old. The children found much to interest theni, especially in the live stock exhibit. They crowded around the sleek looking animils, especially the Angora goats, and many were the expres sions of wonderment. I They Have Him Tight. The big Angora goat. o chewed his halter Monday and we d the rampage around the grounds before he was re captured, is an'object of especial interest to the youthful .visitors. He is now fastened with a piece of wire and will not be able to cut himself loose again, The balloon ascension, which has been postponed two days on account of the high wind, will quite likely .1,% pulled off this afternoon for the benefit of the children, unless the wind should take a notion to again do business, which 'does not seem likely. Another feature of children's day that the management will endeavor to give will be the exhibition of the .,oodhounas which have beep brought here to trace the Northern Pacific dynaminiters. It is pro posed to have a man make the circuit of the track, then return,, and become lot. in the crowd. The ifoundt will be givel.n the scent in the hope they will follow his (Continued on PaFne Five,) LOSS OF CANTEEN PROVING SERIOUS SURGEON GENERAL IN THE PHILIP PINES SAYS IT HAS DEATH RATE TO INCREASE. MALAYS MAKE FINE SHOWING Death Rate Among Them Is Low and There is Little or No Drunkonness -Insanity Deoreasing. BY ASSOCIATED PRESS. Washington, Oct. 7.-An increase in the death rate in the army in the Philippines from 13.96 per 1,ooo in pgot to 15.49 per :,ooo in 19oa is shown in the annual re port of Surgeon General R. M. Reilly for the fiscal year ending June 30. This increase is attributed to cholera, which caused 354 deaths. A slight improvement shows in the ad mission rate for diseases and injury which declined from 1791.59 per I,ooo in 9got to 1716.5: per i,ooo in 9goa. Discussing other features of the health of the army, Surgeon General O'Reilly's report says: Filipinos Cut Figure. "The enrollment of about 5,ooo native Filipino scouts having added a new racial element to the army it becomes a matter of much interest to study the comparative effects of disease on them and on our white and colored troops. For the whole army at home and abroad during the year 19po, the white troops showed an admis sion rate of 17o6.33 per I,ooo and a death rate of 14.40. "The negro troops had 1897.74 admis sions and of death rate 24.11 per 1,ooo, and the Malay scouts o707.21 admissions per I,ooo and 24.04 deaths. The white race therefore gave the lowest figures in sickness and much the lowest mortality. The black race led both, although the 'Malay's closely approached it in death rate. Little Drunkenness. "The freedom of Filipinos front the vice of drunkenness is strikingly shown when we find that out of 5,ooo men only three individuals were treated for alcoholism in one year, and while white soldiers were admitted to sick report on account of their own conduct, the pse of alcohol was at the rate of 24.78 per i,ooo, and colored troops at the rate of 11.7o, the Malay scouts showed the extremely small admission rate of .62 per 1,ooo. "The steady increasing prevalence of venereal diseases is the most discouraging feature in the sick report of the army. During 90goa s,ooo admissions were from this cause alone, equivalent to a rate of 16o.94. per 1,ooo. Admission to sick re port from alcoholism in 19o2 were slightly in excess of the number (including volun teers) for 19o1. A total number of 1,83o cases, equivalent to 22.65 per I,ooo of strength occurred. Loss of Canteen Given. "It is impossible not to attribute a large part of the steadily increasing venereal diseases of the arm to the loss of the can teen, where the soldier if he so desires could get his beer throughout the month, but was not subjected to the temptatioqs of intemperance and vice now attendant upon the expenditure of a full month's pay at the low resorts in the outskirts of our military reservations. "A slight dimunition of the insanity oc curred in the army during 19o02. There were 138 new cases, equivalent to the ad mission rate of 1.71 per I,ooo, which was almost 'identical with the rate for the de cade z89x to 1goo." NO TRACE OF THE DYNA MITERS HAS BEEN FOUND Northern Pacific Officials Declare They Will Never Submit to the Blackmailers. SPECIAL TO THE INTER MOUNTAIN. Helena, Oct. 7.-There do not appear to be any new developments in the search for the villains who tried to wreck a Northern Pacific freight train Monday night near Birdseye by placing dynamite upon the track. On account of rain and sleet the bloodhounds taken to Birdseye could not find the scent and the pursuit had to be dropped. A dispatch from St. Paul quotes offi cials of the Northern Pacific as saying they would spend half a million dollars trying to run the dynamiters to cover be fore ever thinking of yielding to their de mands and submitting to blackmail. General Manager Tom Cooper will prob ably come to Montana in a few days to take charge of the work of tracking the outlaws. MANEUVERS TODAY BY CAMP YOUNG TROOPS BY ASSOCIATED PRESS.

Kohlseat, the St. Louis capoietlea. emauiasioaer, in private JUDGE CLANCY AND SHOW CAUSE ORfERH HIS HONOR HEARS HEINZE'8 PETI TION TO ENJOIN 40 FEET MORE OF LEONARD. PORTION ALREADY ENJOINEq Construotion of the Order From the Su preme Court IModifying Older Judg ment by Clancy Involved. At It o'clock today Judge Clancy began hearing an application for an injunction made by the plaintiff against the defend ant in the case of F. A. Heinze against the Boston & Montana Mining company, and h.Avolving the ledges of copper ore in the Gambetta and Piccolo mining claims, which constitute a part of the Leonard mine north of and adjoining, the Minnie Healy mine. Heinze wants the court to construe an injunction order of the supreme court in a way that will prohibit the defendant company from working a strip of its terri tory in the Piccolo and Gambetta claims about 40 feet wide. Modified by Supreme Court. The Boston & Montana company Is already enjoined from working a strip of the l.eonard mine territory about 16o feet wide which adjoins the Minnie lHeaty on the north, the injunction having been originally issued by Judge Clancy and modified by the supreme court. In the form in which it carme from Clancy's hands it practically enjoined the whole mine. After the supreme court had trimmed it down it covered only the too feet referred to. Now Heinze wants to stretch the in junction so as to take In 40 feet more ground to the north of the already en joined territory and that much further within the lines of'the defendant's mine. The whole proceeding hinges upon the construction of the modifying order of the supreme court. The supreme court ordered that the perpendicular injunction plane which should run down into the earth and divide the Leonard mine into enjoined ground and unenjoined ground should be drawn east and west across the Piccolo and Gambetta claims, which largely blanket each other. The point where this line should be drawn was fixed al that point where the 30o level of the Leonard crosses the Gain betta north side line south of the Leonard shaft. According to the construction of the Boston & Montana company, this point is about ioo feet north of the south side line of the Piccolo. According to Heinze's contention, it is about i4o feet north of the side line named. B. & M. Ground. The Boston & Montana determines its position on the question upon the ground that its main level crosses the line at the point too feet north of the line. Heinze determines his on the ground that there is a small northwesterly drift from the main south crosscut which crosses the line southwest of the shaft. He wants to pitch the plane at this point. In the proceeding whose hearing began before Judge Clancy today the trial court is asked to issue a new injunction cover ing the 40 feet of disputed territory. Tl'lis is done instead of the taking of the ques tion of construction directly to the su preme court. The hearing did not get very far today. Alfred Frank, one of Heinze's surveyors, was the only witness on the stand in the forenoon, and in the afternoon the hear intg did not open till after a :30o o'clock. The delay in the afternoon was caused by the absence of Judge Mcllatteu. The court waited for him to transact some business with the county commissioners. When the hearing opened this morning Judge McHatten read the affidavit of Al fred Frank, a surveyor employed by the plaintiff, Heinze, and upon which the ap plication for the injunction was based. The affidavit alleged that the B. & M. company is extracting ore in the Piccolo and Gambetta claims belonging to a vein in the Minnie Healy and burning powder in the underground workings to the dis. comfiture of ,the plaintiff's employes in the Minnie Healy. The lawyer stated that the proceeding was begun August a21. 19o03, and that the hearing had been origimally set for Sep (Continued on I'Page lTen.)
