Yokohama, Oct. 13.-All reports emanat
ing from Shanghai of the opening of hos

be dismissed as absurd. Russo-Japanese

Less Alarming.
Berlin, Oct. 13.-The trend of todiy's
early information regarding the Far
Eastern situation is less alarming. The
Frankfurter Zeitung, whose sensational
announcement of the occupation of Ma
San-Pho by Japan yesterday occasioned
disquiet, today publishes a telegram from
Shanghai saying there is no confirmation
of the reported occupation of that place,
adding that the Russo-Japanese negotia
tions at Tokio concerning the evacuation
of Manchuria give the impression that
the political situation in Japan is quiet.
No Confirmation.

London, Oct. 13.-Baron Hayashi, the
Japanese minister here, has received re
assuring news from Japan with reference
to the situation in the Far East. He says
lis telegrani indicates that there is no
need whatever for alarm and adds that
the message was not a reply to anything
he had cabled. So he thinks it was prob
ably sent because of the alarmist rumors
which have been in circulation in Europe
and which finally reached Japan.
No Trouble Likely.
Washington, D. C., Oct. 13.-At the
cabinet meeting today Secretary Hay
spoke of information he had received as
to the situation in the Far East and it

hostilities between Japan and Russia.

Candidates Springing Up-Senator Man
tie and J. B. Leggat Talk of the
Great Excursion.
Montana will send samples of her treas
ures to the St. Louis exposition, not only
her precious ores, but specimens of her
youth and beauty and sweet womanhood.
Thirty young ladies from all over the great
state will go to the World's fair as guests
of the Inter Mountain.
The announcement made last evening
that it was the purpose of this paper to
have each county in the state select its
most popular girl to go to the St. Louis
Exposition at the expense of the Inter
Mountain, was widely talked about to
day. Many praised the enterprise of the
paper and others gladly took up the plan
because it would be good for the state.
It will make the fair talked of and
arouse a deep interest in the exposition
that is destined to put the Chicago World's
Fair in the shade.
Candidates Sprung Up.
The plan was so big and the expense
and trouble entailed so great, that many
wondered how the Inter Mountain could
do it. The Inter Mountain will do it,
however, and in style, too.
As soon as the announcement was readl,
young ladies from various parts of the
state made known their intentions of be
coming candidates. Entries were received
from Bozeman, Townsend, Deer Lodge,
Anaconda, Missoula and Butte. The
names of the young ladies will be pub
lished in Saturday's paper. The first
coupon will appear in that issue.
It will be to the advantage of the can
didates to announce their entries as soon
as possible. Friends caul be apprised of
their candidacy and may begin to work for
them at once. Those who lenter the race
early will get a good start, although others
can come int at any time.
There will be three girls selected from
Butte, two from Deer Lodge county and
two from Missoula. In other parts of the
state there will be one from each county.
Judging from the number of entries af
ready recorded the list of candidates will
be a long one.
According to the rules of the contest the
voting will begin Monday next. The
coupons must be voted within seven days
after the date of receipt. This is to fa
cilitate the counting of the ballots which
will be no small task of itself.
Every county in the state has an Inlter
Mountain bureau where the votes may be
cast and the results will be wired to this
office daily. In this way the contestants
may be apprised of the achievements of
pach other.
When the maids of honor are elected
the Inter Mountain will do the rest. The
young ladies will assemble in Butte and
go to the exposition together. All ex
penses will be paid by this paper.
The Pullman berths, dining-car service
en route and the hotel bits at the expo
sition will all be settled for by the Inter
When the lucky girls have been chosen
they will be asked to select a chaperon,
who will accompany them on their jour
ney. The party will be entertained at the
exposition two weeks.
"I don't know, of anything that has hap
pened since the legislature voted to have
Montana represented at the St. Louis Ex
position that has caused so much interest
in the World's Fair as the Inter
Mountain's contest," said ex-Senator Lee
Mantle, president of the Montana World's.

"The generosity and enterprise of the
Inter Mountain should be oommended. I
will say for the Montana commission that
we are in hearty accord with the move

state into greater prominence, bt: will.
arouse much interest in the fair among,'
Montana people.

benefit to the young ladies will be' a last.
ing one. The trip to St. Louis will be
something that they will remember all
their lives. It will be ai education in a
J, B. Leggat, secretary of the Montana
World's Fair conmmission, was equally as
enthusiastic over the Inter Mountain's
plan to send so young ladies to the St,
Louis Exposition.
"I don't know of a better plan to get
all the people of the state ilnterested In
the fair," said he. "It is a big enterprise
on the part of the Inter Mountain, but I
feel sure that it will be a success and the
state will be benefited. T'he selection of
those 30 young women to attend the ex
position will be almost as big an under
taking as a state election. Mvery county,

No one here Lppe.ars to know alnything

fii the Great Northern to give to the Mnii
tnla Electric companly I temllporary site
tlr a warehouse, just across the track from

' he reason given for refusing to colncede
ithe site was that ground was needed for

'This is a welcome and surprising piece

thue came the speaking.
President William Scallon of the Ana
conda Copper Mining company, who has
charge of the Amalgamated interests here,
was the first speaker. He made at frank;
clean-cut speech to the men that aroused
their heartiest enthusiasm. Then C, F.
Kelley and others followed in a similar
strain. That practically concluded the
day's program, hut there were other forms
of entcrtainment for the men. In facti
they had a great big picnic, and the best

The thing that struck all observers re,
garding the proceedings of the day was
the wholesale cordiality which plainly ek
ists between the omen and the officials

panies' interests in their charge.
Lavish Hospitality.
Another thing that impressed itself upon
the observer was the lavish manner in
