WAS WELL FIXED AN $85 GOLD WATCH AND $50 IN MO~SEY FOUNO IN ROOM OC. CUPIED BY HIM. HAD HIDDEN THEM CLEVERLY Property Will Be Kept in MoGeary's Nlame and Turned Over to Him Should He Beoome Sane. James McGeary, the insane man who thought he owned the cities of Salt Lake and Great Falls, and who addressed com munications to the chiefs of police of both places under the assumed name of A. B. Mackay, and who is now in the Montana state insane asylum at Warm Springs, was today discovered to be the owner of a fine $8S gold watch and $So in money. McGeary was convicted of insanity on Friday, his trial taking place in Judge 3McClernan's court and he was arrested a few days before that in the Southern ho tel. Today the watch and the money were found between the mattresses on the bed in the room occupied by McGreary while at the hotel. With a Lunatio's Cunning. He had Lidden them so securely that they had es.aped discovery till the cham bermaid pulled the top mattress off the bed today. McGeary was quite mad, and doubtless had forgotten all about the watch and money when arrested, at which time he was galloping up and down the hotel corridors in negligee costume, having is sued from his room via the transom just in time to prevent the house from falling on him, he said. In his letters to the chief of police of Salt Lake and that of Great Falls he said be was the owner of the townsites of the cities named and would be along soon and divide the property up. To Be Held for Him. As soon as the watch and money were found today the sheriff's office was tele phoned to and an officer took charge of them. They will be sent down to the asylum to be held there at the order of licGeary in case he recovers from his insanity. If his case becomes hopeless they will no doubt be used for his benefit. INIER MOUNTAIN'S OFFER TO BEAUTY (Continued from Page One.) way for the simple reason that more Inter biountains are sold in Butte than in any other city. It would not make the excur sion thoroughly reprqsentative of the whole state. - For this reason the Inter Mountain is going to have a6 contests, one in each county in the state. There will be Inter Mfountain headquarters in each county seat and there the ballot box will be kept. .ach county will select its own maid by voting the Inter Mountain ballots in its own ballot box. This will make the ex cursion thoroughly representative. Get More Than One. Because of the unusually large circula tion of the Inter Mountain in Silver Bow, Deer Lodge and Missoula counties there will be more than one maid from each of these three. Silver Bow will have three and Deer Lodge and ,Missoula two each. The other 23 counties will select one each. The maids themselves will select the 31st amenmber of the party-the chaperon. Don't you think it will be a happy crowd? Wouldn't you like to go? Every girl over zy years of age in Mon tana has the chance. If she and her friends simply will' work hard enough she is assured of a trip to the fair under conditions the most delightful that can he imagined. She will go there in com pany with the flower of 'Montana young womanhood-and there is none finer in the land. Of course it will be a select party-the manner of choosing the maids of honor in sures that. In Great Style. And they will go in style. They are going to have the very best railway equip ment and service that money can buy. IThey will have their every wish antici pated. They will not need to take a cent with them, for the Inter Mountain will arrange everything-meals, hotel rooms at fit, Louis, admission to the fair, street gar fares, everything necessary. They will be chaperoned properly and will have one big, jolly time. Nothing like it was ever thought of before; no other newspaper in the West has the en terprise to undertake a thing of this sort, entailing so many miles of travel, such a great expense and so much' trouble. The Inter Mountain is going to do it, however, lnd do it in style. That is the way the Inter Mountain believes in doing things. Now, as to dates. The voting will begin next Monday and the ballot boxes will close on Tuesday, January zo, at 7 o'clock in the evening. The time of the excursion will be during the height of the fair season. The time consumed will be two weeks from the date of the departure from Butte. Exactly a fortnight after the train leaves here it will return. Another thing, the Inter Mountain is not asking its guests to journey from their homes to Butte at their own expense. This newspap'er will bring them here and send them home, paying all expenses just the same as on the actual trip from Butte to the fair. At the Pair. At St. Louis special programs for the entertainment of the young ladies will be arranged under the direction of the Inter (Mountain. Moreover there will be a re ceptipn at the state building to these of flcial representatives of the Montana counties, and other forms of entertain . Isent will be provided also.

The commissioners took the land on either side of the beaten track which be came the boulevard when graded,' and added it to the boulevard.

"The mere raising in certain political circles of the question whether the czar would be welcome serves to wound Rus slan suseeptibilities. Czar Nicholas is not afraid of hostile demonstrations; but he cannot carry out the plans for his visit while the socialist party is discussing its attitude towards a sovereign who is not merely visiting a friendly court, but the whole Italian nation. "It is hoped in Russia that the circum stances compelling the. postponement of the czar's visit to Rome will soon cease, enabling his majesty to make the visit he so greatly desires."
