A CASE ON ITS MERITS Take a few mi.or nts of your leisure time this Saturday evenilg, Mr. Citizen, and consider tlhe mcrits of an iml.portant Case in court ini which you are enttirely free from prejudicre against either of the parties to the : ,tini. It is alleged that MIr. Symtons, the en ergetic imerchant, owns nint tyeii'ht per cent of the stuik in the big store whose sign carries hliis naiie au.l tie conduct of the business of which hle is directillg. An emplloye of a rival slre conductted by Case, Gravelle & Erviii e,,paniy, with monty supplied by his enjployrrs, pur chased olle-liftet Ilt of o1e per cent ol the total intrrest il tiet' Symi,,s coinern, with the lpurpose of tihlar;tsin' its husinss. This empl iye ;1phlitd to the distric:t court of Silver I:tw .io.nty for a rice ivr for thie Symons Il t ;Ill , .- l;l for a pt('s tol;lllnt injunction prthiiliting Mr. Smom;n from receiving any dii itl ,l o or pralils onl Isi ninety-eight per ciln intle e ili tihe busi org;anliitl prte iely hke that of (':~re. ira velic & Ervin company --is lnot in tihr monlly ithll the lawst if Mont ana.llltii hllll, h in icr lpliance it.l . til e ilws of another state under which the organization wyas made. It appeared on the trial that the .si ness of the Syniuts none'rn was , welil anI profitably codtlucteid :nld that the eipluye of the rival insltitution had regulatrly re ceivel dividends on his investtmenit for the fractional part of one per cent; that he had suffered no injury, was in no danger of any. The learned judge granted tile injunction asked for, declarerd Mr. Synlons to stand in the attitude of a stranger to his business, witlhout rights as a stockholder or otherwise, land an nounced that hie would hold the question of a receiver for the business in itleyance and might appoint one at any time, day or night, without notice. Mr. Symnons was restrained fronm directing, interferiug with or participating in the conduct of the lbusiness. What would Mr. Symons think of the law as interpreted by the court and of the court? What would the public think of the firm of Case, Gravelle & Ervin tollmpany and its employe? 'What wouiiul you think? And what would Mr. Symouiis do if he was a law abt.long. citizen? ONE-SIDED RECIIPROCITY There is tmuoh of selfiiness as well as seeming ignor:ance in the suggestion made by certain New England newspapers that the United States, now that it has won the Alaskan award, should gencrously grant Canada, by treaty, an open port on Lynn canal. The Massachusetts journal which first offered the suoggestion points out that by so doing the chances of ob taining reciprocity with Canada and the entrance of New England manufactured goods at a nominal tariff into the do minion, might be increased. In other words, for the possible benefit of a few New England manufacturers the bulk of the great and growing Alaskan trade is to be given to foreign ports. Of course the government will never seriously consider such an absurdity, but the suggestion goes to illustrate the idle and silly character of arguments and propoesals made by the anti protectionists. Lynn canal, it might be stated for the benefit of those iot familiar with what the New England proposal entails, is an arm of the sea in Southeastern Alaska pene trating to the foot of the coast range of mnountains. It is the natural gateway to the interior of Alaska and the Klondike district of the Canadian Northwest terri tories. Scale the pass that lies at the head of the so-called canal and overshadowing it, and you reach the :head of that chain of lakes and rivers that lead to Dawson City, the Yukon basin and all the great empire from which so many millions of gold are now coming annually. From Skaguay on Lynn canal a railway has been built over the pass and on down to White Horse rapids. Over it passes the trade of the region, save that which comes by river boat up the Yukon in summer. The possession of this canal was the kernel of the Alaskan boundary dispute. No one questioned our ownership of it un til the Klondike discovery gave it immense importance. Then Canada sought to claim a foothold there. If she can pass ker cheaply made goods through this gateway without the payment of customs duty she will cut most seriously into the Alaska trade, a -trade which has made Seattle, Tacoma and other American coast ports rich. Vancouver, B. C,, and Vic i4oria, B. C., quickly would rival the Puget Sound cities, the millions of tons of nslyht now being carried in American bottoms would be carried by vessels flying the British flag. The harbors of Puget Sound would be filled with idle ships and the merchants of those cities would go out of business or, at least, curtail most woe fully. In their expenses, Britons and not Americans would reap the benefit of the enormous and constantly growing comrn merce that is being built up with the de velopment of the Yukon basin. And the New England newspapers would have us throw all this away for compara tively nothing, would have us part with the fruits of our victory before the bound ary contlission, would have us make a present to Canada of commercial su pIremacy on the North Pacific. WVhy, even F. Aug. Ileinzc would not have nerve enough to sublit a more greedy proposi tiol I BUTTE AS AN EXAMPLE Blutte offers the compliments of the sea son to her long distance critics who have imagined that they were secing things in this community, and respectfully requests them to look again. l'robably it was not unrcasonable for the newspaper experts in Chicago, New York and some other centers of lawless ness to anticipate that there would be dreadful doings in Butte, incident to a period of protr;acted idlenc.s for her thou sands of workmen imposeld upon them by influences which should not control and which could not under just administration of fair laws. With less provocation for disorder in more pretentious cities there h:ts ribeen a superaltunda;nce of it. It is tlue to lButte, and no injustice to anybody, to invite the interested observers in the outside world to serious conllidera tio. of the fact that the most cotistipittots examnpltes of lawlessness in the world's ;ireattst mining city :are to ibe fotind ill her city governmenttt and in the cotnduct of court tpruedings. Her people are robust, fi:irless, independenit, qualilied to fight under any rules, law-respecting and coln p.tent to kieep the peace. In the pre'ent emergencll tihere has been ~either disorler nrc innce of disorder friml th,,.e to whom the defm;ers of the t .t hlayve lookid. for confirmtatii n of their \wi .ll i tiipatiortns. The conduct of the wu,-: ce;irnersl hias libeen not ontly peaceful, lnt active and intelligent in tll"ort to assist in reachitng a isttlemncent of dificulties by pealful neais. 'Their appeal has been it the lai fully ctltituted representatives i ..rvtlllirrl l throiugh petition and at no tie tii intimidlation or force or lawless i. s. 'They aire neither unarchists nor ii;lan.r:litm s who lead the Ittltte Miners' union in thitoght anl actionit. It is to th'emii largely, 1,eyoitd doubt, that 13utte is illchled for the fact that the city is ant ex:tmple of order instead of disorder under Imost tryintg circumlstances and conditions, antd it is due thlia to have the fact recog nized atnd acknowledged not only in lButte but by the newspapers of the country which have been innocently led to mis representation of thie facts. HONOR TO WHOM DUE Further details of the disaster at the t Kearsarge mine near Virginia City in dicate the brave Robert 13. Turner was not the only hero who gave his life in a vain effort to save the imprisoned nlen. George Allen and Ed Laherty, both former re spected residents of Butte, were tile vol unateers who went to their death with him, sharing with him the glory of a ntlle cettndintg, equally with hint to he honored in the memory of all miners. '1 here was little that was spectacular about the deed of these three fearless and self sacriticing young meln. It was done out of the public eye. without thought of glory or personal adult lion--a simple, inoble ef fort to save humanm life, and it should be writica inl the history of the state. A \\'yomling man took two drinks of whisky and ran aunuck, killing one atan andl injuring another. Hle was tinally killed with an ax. Any moan who will take that many drinks of Wyoning whisky ought to be killed. The Connecticut court decided that Mr. Bryan did exactly right itn that will muat ter and that virtue is its own reward. hlow old was Ann when MlacG(inniss de ilded to remove fromt Salt L.ake to Ben ver? The worst possibilities of football will nit be realized till the mass play is ex changed for the toy pistol. The Inter Mountain will lie pleased to print the names of all citizens who are op posed to a special sessCion of the legislature together with their reasons for antagon izing laws to give effect to the constitution of the state antd to insure to every litigant a fair trial before ant impartial court with out sale, denial or delay. It is the governor's privilege to wait. The idle worknmen call wait, also, but they can scarcely esteem it a privilege. A St. Louis attorney announced re cently that his client, one of the boodle legislators, was not a model of honesty. The juries in that city seem to be of the same opinion. Either lHeinze is dishonest when he de clares that he never will abandon the fight in Butte so long as the people support htim or he was dishonest in his proposi tions to settle the matters of difference. All who are acquainted with the man and his methods know that he was dishonest at both times. e Colombian intellect is slowly but surely e developing a realization of the 'fact that tt Uncle Sam will not construct two canals across the Isthmus of Panama. if If IHeinze tells the truth when he boasts n that he has fo.tud temporary employment for nearly double his usual force o workmen, he has enforced idleness upon only about fourteen thousand wage-earners in Montana through his efforts to cos f6scate other people's property by u&. paralleled outrage upon justice in courts which he controls. It has been recommended that Chins smen be allowed to enter Hawaii to consume' their rice crop. So far nothing has been said concerning the rat crop, but there Is hope that the one measure will give relielt in both instances. The question simply is whether the ausI premte law of Montana is to be taken from; the constitution of the state or from the; unprecedented decisions handed down by the United Court and Copper company's biased judges. A young woman in the state of Wash ington committed suicide because she found out that the man she was going to marry was a girl. Many men have done the same thing because they did not find. out the girl before they married her. A number of Italians were detained at lFllia island recently and not allowed to land in the United States. They never let a day-go by without making a thorough examination. THE GOWNS OF PATTI Solace for Those Who Cannot Hear Her Sing. [Washington Times.1 One of the most amusing instances of the worship of sham is to be found in the announcement of a certain New York dry goods shop that it will, on a certain day, exhibit copies of the gods which Patti is to wear at her concerts, and that, for the entertlainmment of patrons, a soprano of some local reputation will sing the songs which the famous singer has on her pror:am, while they are looking at the gowns. Could anything he more ridicu lons ? 'Thoste who heard Madame Patti in the full glory of her powers, when Italian opera was in its Ilower, and she was its enchantress, have for the memory a feel ing akin to reverence, as one must have for any supreme proof of the heights to which art may attain. They will remem her the enthusiasm which broke forth in storms of appla:tms and made the securing of tickets a matter of enterprise as well as of dollars. But they will not, in all prlability, remember what the singer happened to have on. O(bserve that the gowns thus exhibited to a world of sham-worshipers are not even the robes worn by the singer herself, but only copies. The exhibition is free to all. Doubtless the imitation gowns will be quite as satisfactory to the beholder as the originals, and they are not likely to know the difference between the soprano of local reputation and the world-famed voice of Patti herself. It is an arrange ment which resembles what they call over flow meetings at a religious revival, when the tent in which the leader of the meet ing holds forth is tilled to overflowing, and lesser meetings are arranged in lesser tents, at which satellites may shine. If this exhibition is satisfactory, perhaps overflow wedding receptions will be ar ranged, in which those guests who at tended a wedding by standing outside in the street will find replicas of the gowns worn by the bride, bride's mother and bridesmaids. Tammany's Contribution to Democratic Strength. [New York Times (Dem.) ] Nearly every prominent democrat of relutiation who has taken part in the can vass has declared that the issue was New York government and not national poli tics, and that, if it were national politics, the success of Tammany would hurt rather than help their party. Apart from this pitiful attempt of Tammany to steal into power under the cloak of national de mnocracy, it has done nothing to secure, or even to claim, the confidence of the people of the city. It has started a few preposterotts mnisrepresentations, mostly originating in the fertile imagination of Mr. Grout, but for the most part it has been on the defensive. Where the Real Money Is. [Seattle Post-lntelligencer.] Mr. Peary asks that a purse of $15o.,oo lie raised to permit him to fix up an expe dition to fin the north pole. Mr. Peary's request comes at a bad time. A few months ago, when millions were being made daily out of hot air, he might have picked up the money in half an hour's tour of W\all street offices. Now he will probably have to come out West and see the farmers to get it. His Trip. [Town and Country.] Owenlotts (coughing forcedly)--I've been advised that a trip abroad would be greatly to my benefit. Sharpun--Who advised you, your law yer or doctor?

Subscriber-I want a reporter fired. Editor--What is the trouble? Subscriber-This article says: "Mr. Rorer's dog bit him yesterday and he is such a vicious beast that he will have himn killed." Land Frauds. [Milwaukee Wisconsin.] The difference as to land frauds under thlt. Ilitchcock administration and many of th"se which have preceded it is not that there are muore frauds under the Hitchcock administration, but that there is more ac tivity in ferretion; them out and prose cuting the perpetrators. Confusing. IBaltimore American.] A l.ondon scientist has discovered that wc are either right or left minded. The idtla is somewhat confusing to the matter of-fact person, yet it remains true that some people have very little mind left, alld even that little remnant is not right. He Wasn't Going.

PEOPLE WE MEET Theodore Gibson of Great Falls, son of Senator Gibson and the manager of the Park hotel, arrived from the Electric City today. Mr. Gibson said the people of Great Falls were natually feeling a trifle blue over the Butte shutdown, whloh has closed the big B. & M. smelter, thrown many men out of employment and stopped a large monthly payroll. The people of Great Falls almost to a business man have petitioned the governor to call the legis lature in special session and have also sent a number of delegations of repre sentative citizens to the executive to urge him to act. John Byrne, state mining Inspector, ar rived from Helena last night and went to Virginia City today to investigate the fire and other incidents connected with the accident of yesterday which snuffed out eight human lives. "It was a terrible affair," raid Mr. Byrne. "It was by far the worst accident that has been called to my official atten tion silnce I became mining inspector. I will spend a day or two looking into the mine and learning all I can about the affair. As yet I only know what I have seen in the papers. They called me up over the long distance 'phone from the Kearsarge yesterday afternoon and noti fled mne. They then said there were seven lives lost, but I see by the Inter Mountain bulletin there were eight It's too bad. The poor boys lost their lives on duty. I knew some of the Butte men of the dead. When I return I will be able to give you details of the accident." A. L. Stone of Missoula is in the city. W. i. Raleigh arrived from Helena last night and registered at the Finlen. Rodger C.

MUELLER AND LAVELLE SURETIES ON THE BONDS Substituted for Hennessy and Ryan in Receivership Case-Now Nearly Ready for Supreme Court. The undertakings upon appeal in the Lamm and MacGinniss-Parrot Mining company case, one of the three receiver ship cases recently decided by Judge Clancy, were filed in the district court to day. The bonds are for $300oo each, and the sureties upon them are Henry Mueller and M. P. Lavelle. The defendants in the case, who filed the bonds, at first proposed D. J. Hen nessy and John D. Ryan as sureties. The sufficiency of those gentlemen as sureties for $30o was questioned by Ileinze's attor ney, Judge McHatton, however, and Messrs.
