She must have intelligent sympathy, such as will help and strengthen those needing it. In fact, she must be a well balanced womlan.

ILate last night lIeinze, MlacGinniss, Kennedy and the rest of the "anti-corpora tioln" crowd arrived in Ielena. Whether it was the lateness of the hour or some tling else, there was no demonstration at the Great Northern depot as the train pulled in from llutte. The head of the United Copper company registered at the Hlelena. First thing he did was to go into the barroom and refresh the crowd tlt had ,been posted in advance on his destina tion. 'Tlhen he disappeared for awhile. The next time lie was seen in public was in the Grandon bar, in close communion with the man who presides over the des tinies of the thirsty, and Delegate Pelletier of the Silver BIow county delegation. Later, it is understood, he went to bed. MacGinniss Looks Natural. John MacGinniss, who is the second in command for the United Copper company, looks just as natural as he used to look be fore he went to sleep in Chicago and dreamed those dreams that appeared in the Chicago Inter Ocean and other papers. IHe "mixed it" with "the boys" and then he, also, went to bed. Before lie went he told once more the story of how lie came to be "the man who made Heinze." It hap pened that when the fugitive front the fury of the miners of Butte-the man who dodged the chance to sell his one-fifteenth of one per cent of shares for many times their value-struck Chicago, he ran into some newspaper men. lie was interviewed, as naturally wood happen with a man who had tied up a gret commonwealth. lie was not treated $ll right by the Inter Ocean, and when We opportunity came he was not averse ;o standing in with those who suggested put ting up a job on the offending paper. Some of his friends and old college chums in the city undertook to be MacGinniss. This friend told all those wonderful things that's the way Colonel MacGinniss puts it. And he tells the story as if he believed every word of it. Col. Tom McTague is here. He dropped in yesterday afternoon. He sa's he did not come on account of the meeting of the legislature, but because today clops the fiscal year for the state penitentiary and it is necessary for him to be at the state house on that account. Nobody doubts his word in the least, but there are some who do say that a meeting of the Montana legislature without Colonel Mc Tague on the ground would be a very unusual spectacle. When the matter of an extra session was being agitated, ex-Mayor Donald Bradford was asked by the Helena Busi ness Men's association to circulate a pe tition to the governor in favor of it.

GENERAL BROOKE'S OPINION OF WOOD FORMER GOVERNOR GENERAL OF CUBA ON ALLEGED INSUBORDINA TION OF HIS INFERIOR. HE WAS HIGH AND MIGHTY According to Brooke, Wood Did About as He Pleased-Went to Wash ington Without Leave. SIY ASSOCIArTED Is4FIS. W\ashington, Dec. i.---itajor General Brooke, retired, formerly governor general of t(ula., gave testimony before the senate committee on military affairs yesterday, which charged insubordination against Gen. Leonard Wood. General Brooke was before the commnit tee mlore tl;an two holrs and devoted the entire time to telling of Ge;nteral Wood's conduct at Santiago. The witness offered in support of his st:atetmentlts maIllty documentl ts taken froml records at tilhe war departmnent anld several papers from his personal collection. At the clore of his testimony, a mllemuber of the conlmlittee said it is probable (;en cral Wood will have to return from the lPhilippines and testify. Wood Violated Orders. O(ne of tile clltrges made b)y General Brooke is that I(;enral Wuood violated the order which required hirt, in makilg im proven ints in Santlago, to submit esti mates to thle governor general. As evidence of this violation, General Itrooke called attetlion to the building of barracks near the Morro, without (;encral \Vootl lirst having given notice to the de partment at Ilavana. (;encral BIrooke said also that General W\ood continuously sent colllutlnicat iotns to the war department over the head of his commanlding officer. The witness assured he cared nothing for the ignoring of his authority, but said the proceedings had been detrimental to mili tary discipline. Papers Attack Brooke. General Brooke called to the attention of the committee in support of an allega tion that General Wood had neglected to work in harmony with the military gov ernment, the matter of General Wood's attitude toward the newspapers at San tingo, which repeatedly ma:le attacks on General Brooke's administration. General Brooke read a number of these attacks and also his recommendations to the war department that the papers be sup pressed unless they desisted. One instance of the Independencia, pub lished at Santiago, which was read, was a bitter denunciation of General Brooke, un der the caption of "God Save Cuba." The article was based on General Brooke's order for the centralization of af fairs of the island by which receipts from all customs houses were ordered sent to Havana. The article, among other things, said that if carried into effect the order soon would prohibit the people of Santiago from breathing without permission from General Brooke, and declared it was a matter of life and death of the province to have the order rescinded. Sent to President McKinley. A numiber of communications sent to President McKinley were appended to the article. General Brooke read a letter which he had sent to the adjutant general of the war department, asking that Gen eral Wood be instructed to prohibit the publication of such articles during the period of military government. He also read General Wood's reply to the adjutant general, whicn the witness said, had been sent over the head of his superior officer, saying that the freedom of speech, untrammeled criticism of the mili tary government and absolute indepen dence in all matters was a necessary part of the education of the Cubans to fit them to conduct a liberal government. General Brooke told the committee that on January 4, 2899, General Wood, with out consulting his superior officer, ob tained permission to visit Washington, even though he left in abeyance matters needing attention. Correspondence re lating to the trip was laid before the com mittee. In the course of General Brooke's testimony, he said that General Wood be came unduly excited when the Cubans held indignation meetings at Santiago, for the The Largest Dental Office in Butte We are permanently located, not a member of any non-graduate or unexperi enced class of young experimenters.

GRADUATE CHICAGO COLLEGE OF DENTAL SURGERY purpose of protesting against the centrali zation order. The witness laid before the committee a copy of a telegram he re ceived front General Wood, saying that the Cubans looked upon the order as ap proaching a calamity and that discontent and profound business depression existed. Finally Wood prayed that the customs receipts be left under local control. The witness declared that the attitude of General Wood was responsible to a great extent in adding to the disquiet of the Cubans. The committee adjourned until Thurs day.
