MONTANA GIRL EXCURSION t
In tile opinion of Montana people the to
Monlana girl is the sweetest, fairest pro- I"
duct of the state. Recognizing this fact re
the Inter Mountain today makes public a th
plan whereby she will le given due rep
resentation at the St. Louis fair, an inter- gr
national exposition which will lie the Ia
greatest the ,world has ever witnessed. Pl
The Inter Mountain, to be brief, invites it
the people of each of the 26 counlies illn
the state to elect its girl representative by It
popular vote, using the Inter Mountail A
liallot for the purpose. Silver Bow county Ft
will be called upon to select thlree of these it
manids of honor, l)Deer oI.lge eiinty two I
and Missoula colunty two,. The other .3 c:
counties in the state will each select one. Ill
Then these girls, perhalps thie iiot iiot ti
asie excursion to visit the exposition, will tI
lie brought to Butte for introductions, t. i
'liere they will be put ahyard their own s,
special I'ulhman cars and taken to St. ti
Louis for a two weeks' trip. PrI:n the i
tinle they leave their homes to the time in
they return thereto they will be the guests fI
of the Inter Mountain. A diinig car will di
lie attached to their train, which prob- .
ably he run froii Itutte to St. louis as a fa
special, and all expenses will hie paid. i
eve n to hotel bills, fair admissionls and car
fare at St. Louis.
It is alln enormous and an expensive plan 1
-the Intter Mountain estimates that its ex- la
pendlitures for the purlpose will lie $;,.50.o- i
but nothing is too good for the Mo11ntana
er
girl. This newspaper proposes to give 3o
of her the time of her life. The girls will
lie permlitted to elect a chaperon for the
trip anlld the expenses of this matron for a
the entiire titme will lie paid also by the
Ititer Moulntain.
No newspaper, ino businless hlouse in the L
\'est ever made an otTer of this char
acter; in all probability such an excursiont
as Cie gift of one institution will not have
its duplicate at the coming fair. Frot tI
the Inoment the train leaves Butte until 1
it returns it will attract great attention all c
k along the line. The West has never seen
anything like it. And that honor and a
admiration for the state will result is a
inevitable. Ilow could it be otherwise, ti
with a trainload of the flower of Montana 0
young womanhood gathered together?
Full details of the excursion, with the I
explanation of the plan of voting in each c
county, are given elsewhere in the Inter t
Mountain this evenilng. It is a state-wide v
scheme, as will be seen, and the girls of no
one locality are to be favored over another. 1
What the Iitter Mountain wants the people a
of each county to do is to make their ownl I
selection of their official county nlaid of a
honor; the Inter .Mountain will do the t
rest. t
RICHARD HENRY SAVAGE
There is something pathetic about the
death of Richard lHenry Savage, the
author, at the Roosevelt hospital in New
York yesterday. A brave and brilliant
soldier who had served under two flags,
an author of distinction, an engineer of
marked ability, a nan who had catm
paigned in many parts of the world, who
had encountered dangers innumerable, to
die as the result of being run over by a
truck.
A dashing, picturesque figure was this
versatile American. His life was as full
of action as his books-and that is saying
much. His career was as interesting as
any novel that he ever wrote. It was not
to be wondered that his writings teemed
with incident and sensational episode.
Born in the famed Mohawk valley on
June 1a, 1846, he entered the United
States military academy as a cadet from
California in 1864, and was graduated
from that institution, high in his class,
four years later. His high standing
allowed hint to enter the crack corps-the
engineers-as a second lieutenant, and he
served there for three years.
The spirit of adventure, ever strong
within him, led hinm to resign his commis
sion and seek more strenuous life in a
distant land. He was an officer of the
Egyptian army from 1871 to 1874, seeing
much fighting on the desert in that time.
At this period came a desire for more
peaceful occupations, and from x874 to
1884 he was engaged in engineerintg on a
Southern railroad. On June a, 3873, at
the German embassy in Washington, ..e
was married to Anna Josephine Scheible
of Berlin.
After his railroad experience Colonel
Savage settled down to a literary life in
New York city. His pen was a prolific
one and he wrote htany stories, Perhaps
the most ambtiouas and stecssful effort,
from a purely literary stanttdpoint, was his
quaint atory, "My Official Wife," a novel
of Russian life and diplomacy that won
high praise from the critics. Equally
stirring, though less ambitious, works
were: "In the Swim," "In the Shadow
of the Pyramids," "The Last Days of
Ishmael Khedive," "For Love and Life,"
"A Daughter of Judas," "The An
archist," "Delilah of Harlem," "In the
Old Chateau,' "The Little Judge of
Lagunitas," "The Masked Venus," "The
Flying Halcyon," "Miss Devereaux of the
Mariluita," and "After Many Years," and
other poems.
When the Spanish -American war broke
out in 1898 Colonel Savage was appointed
senior major of the Second United States
Volunteer engineers. lie served with dis
tinction through the war. In November,
5898, he went with his command to Cuba
and personally hoisted American flags in
Hlavana and throughout Havana province.
A brave, able, typical American of the
better sort, his death will be regretted by
his countrymen.
IRRIGATION THREATENED
Government officials connect'ed with the
national irrigation work express some con
cern at the apparent inclin.ttion of West
ern members of congress and Western
people to eomtplain of the sloiwness with
which the reclamatlion work is proceed
ing, according to alvices from Washing
ton. The Ilter Mountain is not aware
that stuch an inclination exists in Mon
tana. IHere the tetholls employed are
pretty generally undlerstood and the people
realize that the apparent ,delay is all for
the best.
I'erhaps the greatest of the federal irri
gation enterlpri'cs lnow ,ni foot tinder tihe
law of the last icongress is the Milk river
project in this state. Active work on
that has Ilee in progress for si.le
ntitllthls, but result s are noIt yt t apl,paret,
lor was it expected that they woulll he.
A force of etgine,'rs is emtplnyel ma:king
surveys, Iprospectilg the soil land prrpar
ing accurate estimat'es of the labor to lie
dll'. Int this wsay. andi ill this way only,
cant the canals be built in a satisfactory
Ianllnier. It imust rt first e determied what
the enlire project will cost, as well as
the accuriate acreage to Ihe benelited, so
that the pricet' at which the landls may le
sldl t settlers may lie fixedl. To tbegin
throwing dirt before ill this is (dline would
he idlle and foolish. Private experience
in irrigation ente:rprises has shown its
futility. Moreover, there has been some
delay incident to the interference of pri
vate partiets witho are endeavoring to get
fancy prices for property which imust lie
inhluhed in tlhe' govertnment work.
W\'hite M'nitana peiople understand this
and while the Montanla delegation at
W'ashilngton can lie relied upon to lie vigl
lant in carillng for the sclheme of federal
irrigation, there is a fear that other West
ernl states a;re growing passive inl the
cause. There is grave danger in this.
Though perhaps it is ,not genlerally known,
a latent opposition, founded on ignorance
of the exact provisions of the federal irri
gation law, and nourished by prejudice,
exists in the East and Middle West to
the expenditure of millions of dollars to
extend the lhabitable farm area of the
United States. Within another Is monllths
the federal irrigation fulltnd will amountt to
Itmore than $Io.,,,uuu. ()f course all this
comes from land office receipts in the
states to lie benefited. and sulbseqluenltly
will he returned to the federal treasury
as the lainds are soldl, but opponents of
the measure class the fundl as a straight
out appropriation. Using this as an argu
ment, there is a strolng probalbility that the
latett opposition will ,become active at the
coming session of congress. It will be
the more active because the understanding
was when the bill was passed that $7.oo0,
,ou, or $8,,t((.oiuo would be the proalble
limit of the funl,. W\'ithoutt this under
standing it is doubtful if the bill would
have been enacted, even with the political
and presidlential pressure that was birought
to bear on the lawmlakers in the bill's in
terests.
Therefore it behooves the entire arnd
West to prepare for a struggle in Wash
ington this coming winter. rThat there
will be a fight on the bill seenms certain,
and that an attempt will be made to work
its repeal is assured. In short, the situa
tion is such that every memler of con
gress from the arid and semi-arid states,
and every influence throughout this see
tion of country is needed to hold up the
hands of the president, the otficials ot
the interior department, and especially the
officials of the geological survey, in the
work that is being done.
Now that the State Fair is at an end
and the wise men of the state are calcu
lating the benefits, they find that from
all points of view the appropriation male
by the Eighth legislative assembly for
the enterprise was a good investment.
The fair was an excellent one, and it
served its purpose of educating residents
and non-residents regarding the natural
resources of Montana. Visitors from
widely separated parts of the state were
astounded at the magnitude and variety
of the display. Those from the cities
learned lessons of infinite value. The ex
position was splendidly managed through
out. Next year, no doubt, the manage
ment will he able to do more and do
better, but it is not beyond the truth to
say this, the first year of the institution,
the men in charge accomplished seeming
wonders.
His Opinion.
[Washington Star.]
"Do you believe that every man has
his price?"
"I won't discuss that," answered Senator
Sorghum;" but I will say that the reason
some men stay honest is because the price
asked is so much higher than the price
bid."
How Stands the Commoner on This?
[Seattle Post-Intelligencer,]
It is understood that Dink Botts favors
Woz Gassey of Hell-fer-Sartin, Ky., for
the democratic nomination for president.
TO PASS THE TIME
The Reason.
Mrs. Mustknow-What is going on over
at Mrs. Neukldd's, I see so many going
in and out?
Mrs. Tellem-Mrs. Neukid has a baby
boy and all the girls in the neighborhood
want to borrow him to play with.
A Christian Scientist.
"What's the matter with your head,
Uncle Eph ?"
"I)at mule o' mine been larnin' Chris

"Hilow's that."
"Dat critter uster belong ter one of de

Big Funeral.
Uncle Silas-1 see by th' paper thet
th' jury wus hung in a murder trial at
Strawville.
Aunt l'obitha-My goodness, what a
funeral when all them folks is buried.
Shameful.
Mrs. Title--Did you hear of the scandal
in the Korrect family?
Mrs. Austere-No, do tell.
Mrs. T'itle-Why, Mr. Korrect deliber
ately kissed his wife before one of the
children, and now the nursery is in an
uproar of indignation and demand that
they get a divorce.
PEOPLE WE MEET

day on visiting ltutte for the first time

that trust were entirely too exorbjtant to

A TONSORIAL TIP,
The customer sat in the barber's chair,
And asked the barber to trim his hair,
To curl his mustaches and shave his chi ,
To make him, in fact, as neat as a pin!
Then the barber clipped and the barber shaved,
The Iarber trimmed, while the customer raved,
For the barber he talked and talked and
talked,
And in spite of remonstrance would not be
balked,
Then tile customer said: "You have new
rules
For the use of your tonsorial tools;
But a few suggestions I'd like to make,
Which, if you keep, you won't make a taM'
take!
Don't look out of dodc when shaving; it's
rude, ,
But assume an attentive attitude:
Don't give the impression, if you Ieftsthi
earth,
Of barbers there'd be a perceptible dearthl
Don't, if you can help it, expectorate.
(A habit in barbers very innate)l
Don't try to settle affairs of state,
From the subway ditch to the last tax rate!
And, please keep a silent tongue in your head,
And take as your motto just this: 'Nough
said!' "
The barber was dumb, but he held out his
hand-

AMONG THE PLAYERS
"The Burgomaster."
There was not a seat left at the perform
ance of the "The Burgomaster" at the
big Broadway Opera house last evening.
I'cople seeking reserved seats were turned
:away at the box office yesterday afternoon,
it being impossible to fill their orders,
To say the performance was a success
would he to smile. The laughter and ap
tplause were almost continuous, and "The
BIurgonmaster" was pronounced delightful
in every way. None of the play dragged.
It was all bright, witty, humorous and en
tertaining, proving itself to be one of the
most charming comic operas on the stage
today.
All of the members of the cast acquitted
themselves creditably, from Oscar I.. Fig
nan, who played the leading role, down to
the comely and shapely chorus girls, with
their many and beautiful changes of cos
tumne.
Ruth White, as Willie Astorbilt, was a
great favorite. She played the part with
unusual grace, and her singing was sweet.
IFew women take the role of a man so
pleasingly as did she.
Charles Sharp, as Doodle, and Thomas
Ricketts, as I. Booth Talkington, were
both excellent, as were Harriet Sheldon
and William Riley Hatch, as the theo
solphical freak and the pugilist, respect
ively.
The tough girls and the pugilist made a
hit in their song. All of the songs were
catchy throughout the play, and one of
the sweet singers was Louise Brackett,
as Daisy, a roof garden favorite.
"The Tale of the Kangaroo" and "I
l.ove You" were received with their ac
customed applause, and the other songs of
the reportorie rendered last evening were
listened to with pleasure. Among the
songs sung last night were the following:
"The Burgomaster," "We're Civilized,"
"You Can't Say No," "I Drink From My
lleart to You," "The Soubrette," "We Al
ways Work the Public, Not the Job," "The
I.iiberty Girls," "A Modern Gladiator,"
"Cupid Does Not Marry," "The Bathing
Girls" and the Hypnotist."
Many of the jokes of the witty burgo
master were new, and some of the local
hits were pointed and struck the center of
the target. In the song "The Hypnotist,"
whioh kept the house in roars of laughter,
the burgomaster said that a great many
wonderful things would take place if he
were a hypnotist, and one of the im
provised verses, ending "And Judge
Clancy would decide against Heinze, if I
were a hypnotist," brought the house
down.
"The Burgomaster" will be presented
again tonight, and a crowded house is al
ready assured.
Professor Knox's Lecture.
Professor Knox, lecturer of the Mental
Science college of Seattle, gave an interest
ing lecture at the Auditorium last night.
Hlis subject, "How to Overcome Poverty
and Accumulate Wealth," was handled in
an able manner, and the audience had a
different idea of the meaning of wealth
at the close of the lecture than before.
The professor answered a number of
questions propounded by the audience, and
stated that in the coming lectures he would
devote iS minutes each evening to the an
swering of questions.
The professor said he never had a more
attentive audience than that which he ad
dressed last night.
He will speak tonight on "How to Edu
cate the Man, Woman and Child to Know
iThemselves."
At the Empire.
The management of the new Empire
is elated over the success of the little
theater in Main street. There are several
new specialties added this week and the
attendance is growing each day.
This is the first up-to-date continuous
vaudeville ever given in the city.
The Empire has grown to be a favorite
with the women and children, who can go
there almost any hour in the afternoon
and find good, clean entertainment at
small cost.
Among the new features this week are
specialties by Connors and Connors; Net
ting and Bran and Little Olga, who gives
some new selections, including "Lu, Lu,
My Cocoanut Lu," and the "Valley of Old
Kentu!cky."
Coming to the Grand.
The management of the Grand has se
cured a novelty in the Great Raymond
company, opening at that theater next
Sunday matinee. Mr. Raymond is said to

Nordisa.
Mme. Lillian Nordics loves society, and
her fondness is reciprocated. This winter
she devoted to polite teas and ceremonies,
rather than grand operas and concerts. In
Boston Mme. Nordica was especially pop
ular, and even the well groomed Bos
tonians had to do their best to equal her
frocks and jewels. The singer has treated
herself generously to gems, and her collar
of diamonds and ropes of pearls are com
posed of jewels as large and fine as those
of the famous leaders in the Hub.
Mme. Nordica's most splendid gown
was of panne velvet, trimmed so thickly
with crystal drops that it was a glittering
mass. With her brilliant jewels and her
handsome face, the opera was a sight
worth going miles to see.
To ask Mme Nordica for a song when
entertaining her at dinner is to have her
ill will ever afterward. One Philadelphia
hostess, who begged for "just a little
song," was told by the prima donna:
"But you asked Ine to dine with you; not
to sing for you."
Again the prima donna, with character
Istic whimsicality, will listen to music
and entreat her hostess for a few moments
at the piano. At such times she will sing
with more enthusiasm than she showed
even in the presence of kings.

ROMANCE OF THE PAPACY
[Baltimore News.]
As a rule the secrets of the vatican are
well kept and most of the stories that are
told apropos of the new pope must be
taken with a grain of salt. Now and
again, however, something of the romance
of the papacy really leaks out, though not
through the cardinals. There was, for
example, the strange case of Pope Pius
IX, pretty well known a generation ago,
but now almost forgotten. In his younger
days, when he was Count .Mastai Perrati
and a layman he met and fell in love with
Miss Foster, daughter of the Irish Protest
ant bishop of Kilmore, who was living
with her sister, Mme. De Salis. Miss Fos
ter favored the young count, but Mme. De
Salis drove the lover away. Afterward
she relented, the count returned and the
wedding day was fixed. On the appointed
day the bride and her friends were at the
church, but no bridegroom appeared and
Count Masti Ferrati was never seen again.
Years afterward Miss Foster went to see
Pope Pius IX and was astonished to recog
nize in the pontiff her old flame the count.
The most sensational novelist could not
have invented a plot more fascinating than
the real story of Pope Leo's predecessor.
Mme. De Sails had made an unhappy mar
rlage with an Italian, and her parents,
fearing a similar fate for the younger
daughter, made her promise to guard Miss
Foster against a union with a foreigner,
hence her interference to separate the
lovers; it was only when her sister pined
away that Mmie. Do Salis relented. The
disappearance of the count has quite a
flavor of Dumas about it. Unknown to
his fiancee he was bound to the Jesuits, and
his superiors in the order peremptorily
sent him away on a mission to prevent his
marriage with an Englishwoman and a
Protestant. Letters were intercepted and
he was led to believe that she had married
another, so he took orders and rapidly
rose to be bishop, then cardinal and event
ually pope. Then in the height of his
grandeur he was brought for a moment
face to face with the woman he had loved
and lost. Nothing more dramatic has ever
been staged.
Cleveland's Size.
[St. Louis Times-Democrat.]
It is urged against Grover Cleveland
that lie has no magnetism. But he has
dead loads of magnitude.
