THIS EVIL SHOULD uR REMEDIED.
We call attention to a oondition of
affairs in this city that should receive
prompt attention from the local author
ities. Every night in the week and at
all hours young girls ranging from 11 to
10 years are roaming about the streets
alone, in pairs, and in company with
men of evil designs. Many of these
youngsters have good homes and kind
parents who are unaware or neglectful
of their daughters' surroundings. Oth
ere are without home influences, but
obliged to work for their living, are sub
jected to the same temptations of the
street. They may be seen walking
about as late as two o'clock in the morn
ing, and often in a state of intoxication.
n a very brief time their moral sur
roundings are such that they are well
started on the road to ruin, and then it
is almost too late to bring about refor
nation. There are lodging houses in
this town that fairly swarm with bad
vomen who are always ready to use
their corrupting influences to induce
young girls to follow their lives. These
houses are so managed that men may
take girls to rooms with no questions
asked, and some of these places are
owned by very respectable citizens who
view matters through the light of the
"almighty dollar." There are perhaps
no ordinances to break up the lodging
house evil, but it occurs to us that the
city council and police can work in con
cert to the end that these young girls
may be kept off the streets after certain
hours of night. Of course this is a work
that must be carried on with discretion,
for indiscriminate arrests might result
in defeating the object of the move
nent. Careful watchfulness, a kind
word of advice or warning on the part of
the officers would be all that would be
necessary m most cases. This evil has
become so alarming in some cities that
very stringent measures have been
adopted. In Newark, N.J., the chief of
police received this letter "from a heart

CARD FROM E. G. BROOKE.
He Did Not Attend the Baees While la
the Capital City.
Warraninz, Mont., Sept. 2,-Editor
INDEPENDRNT: Dear Sir-My attention has
been called to the following, which ap
reared in the local news of your paper of
the 80th ult.:
"E. G. Brooke, of Whitehall, Jefferson
county, is visiting the Capital City, and
while here made it a point each day to at
tend the races."
Now, Mr. Editor, will you kindly correct
that statement. The fact is, Ileft my home
in the midst of a busy harvest to answer a
summons from the president and secretary
of our state board of live stook commis
sioners, which met in your city on the 26th,
27th and 28th of August, to transact im
portant business for the stock interests of
the state. During my stay I was no time
nearer the Fair ground or race track than
the Montana Central railroad depot. I
have not been on your fair grounds at any
time since 1888 or 1884. I have not seen a
horse race since October, 1846. It is true I
am fond of good horses, fast horses, and
am proud that our state can produce them,
and hope that Montana horses may continue
to lead the best that other couns
tries may produce I am, Mr.
Editor, an unworthy member of the
Methodist Episcopal Church -onth, and
hope never to commit an act thatmay bring
reproach on that old honored body of
Christians. Yours truly,
E. G. BiooKx.

"The attorney for the defense having
found out who his clients are, we will pro

by Judge Sanders in his court last night,
was not intended as a reflection on the at

the Chinese dialect was about on a par with
his clients' acquaintance with English, the
lawyer and his charges were unable to
identify each other. Qaong Hing was sent
