The oity council last night transacted a
t of business of importance. It was lb.
ded to open Lawrence street in aseor
nce with the petition of property owners.
he matter of lowering the grade of Broad
ay and cross streets was put into such
ape that it is in a fair way to pass if the
ads asked for is approved by the city en
ueer, or if another grade preferred by
at officer is agreeable to the petitioners.

e work of changing from steam to electric
wer, and can build the proposed west

e old office of inspector of weights and
easures and established that of inspector

re made up a busy and a long sesson.
Alderman Morris presented a resolution
at the prayer of the petitioners for the
ening of Lawrence street be granted and
ndemnation proceedings be begin.
derman Wieber said that while the open
g of Lawrence street would be a great
provement, he did not think it policy to
pt any street on conditions. If it were
nod with a proviso against putting a
llroad there, and the next council granted
ranohise, the people might come back on
e city for the money they had paid.
ayor Kleinsohmidt said that was a matter

a it would cost $85,000 to open the street.
Aldermen Hartwig and Morris spoke of
e benefit that would accrue to the city at
rge. in order to provide a safe and con
nient thoroughfare from east to west.
derman Morris further thought it would

lderman Lissner said it seemed strange
at he, a foreigner, should have to look
tsr the poor taxpayers. "You," he said,
s American born citizens, pay about the
me attention to the money mn the treass
y as if it were so much gravel. The city
ede such men as me in the council."
ter calling attention to the debt of the
y, which he placed at $400,000, he pre
ted that at this rate "eight years from
w the city will have to sell out."
ayor Kleinschmidt said if it was in
ded to make this a big city, now was the
e to do it. He could concievo of no
ater improvement than the opening of
wrence street. Every ward would be
nefited. It would pay for itself in the
ape of taxes in less than three years. It
s the same with the grading of Broad
y. The hill should be lowered, and the

wrence street petition: Yeas, ten-Klein,

rris, Witmer, Hanley and Wieber; nays,

d Reece. The ordinance for the opening
Lawrence street was preeented after
rd and referred to the judiciary com
ttee and the city attorney.
he Broadway grading matter came no
t on a resolution of Alderman Morris to
nt the prayer of the petitioners. The
ition asked for a cut of eight and a-half
t at Ewing street, four and a-half feet at
dney, another cut of four feet at Chaucer
eet, the filling in of four feet at.Staborn
set and the lowering of the side streets.
was estimated by the city engineer that
work would cost over $38,000, of which
r $28,000 would be paid by the city and
,000 by the property owners. It was
ted that the property owners on Broad

uld stand the expense of grading and
lacing sidewalks on the side streets.

audience, was called on for his views on
matter. He said that the progress of

lause when Alderman Lissner sat down.
Iderman Morris spoke for the improve

hing the council could do would give it
eter record. It would be money well
nt and benefit the whole city.
Iderman Witmer moved to refer the
tier back to the streets and alleys com
tee. the city engineer and the city at

mation. His idea was to let the city en
eer make the profilee for grades which
should consider best and not confine

lished would last forever.
ayor Kleinsomidt said the dlfficulty
that if they deviated from the figures
he petition the people asking the im
vement might not consider themselves
ud to pay their part. It would be bet
to have the petition more flexible.
Iderman Morris said he thought there
lid be no trouble oetting the petitioners
cede to whatever grade the city council
ught best. In fract, one of the petitlon
had already told him that a mistake was
de in tying the city down to any parti
er grade.
derman Hartwig wanted the committee

not then the petitioners should be con

The artistic performance of the Philhar
mor.io olub needs no special commenda
tion. The members, from continual asso
ciation, have acquired the habit of playing
together, and the result is a unity which is
essential to good concerted music. In the
playing of the Philharmonic club there is
the essential earnstthess and absence of
any tendency to make an individual exhi
bition of skill which go far towards the
genuine enjoyment of their work by the
lovers of this class of musical entertain
The Philharmonic club deserves cordial
recognition from all persons interested in
the promotion of music. Each of the
members is a prominent artist, and thor
oughly competent to perform his share of
the work. T'here is, however, no evidence
of a tendency to display virtuosity by any
of the performers, and as a model of en
semble playing the club is without a rival
in any other similar association on the con
oert etage.

An Appeal From a 8Otanoe for
S unning as ure Thing
Case From Deer Lodge Degardil a Med
Seat Certlfcate From the State
Doard--Other News.
Jndge Hunt's department of the diatrict
court was well filled with spectators yester.
day to see Henry Clark and Bertie Miller
arraigned. Several ladies were among the
audience. Clark came into court hand
ouffed and guarded by several deputy
sheriffs, He preserved his usunal coolness
throughout the prpoeedings. Bertie Miller
eame in soon after Clark, and took a meat
on one of the benches to the ldit of the
judpe'e bench. She was in her female
attire and wore her soft brown hat, which
is about the only head.gear that will be
come her in the present short-cropped con
dition of her hair. She leaned her head on
her hand for a few minutes, and then
looked around as apparently unconcerned
as Clark.
County Attorney Nolan's informations
against the alleged footpads were then
read. The first charged Clark with assault
on Policeman Grogan with intent to kill.
Lawyer Peak, who defended Clark at the
preliminary hearing, was' appointed to
represent him in the assault case. The next
information charged Clark with robbing
Robert Ray. W. W. Phelps was appointed
by the court to defend Clark on this charge.
The third information charged Clark and
the girl with holding up Conductor Rich
ardson. J. J. Williams was named to de
fend Clark on this and J. W. Kinsley ap
peared for Bertie Miller. The last infor
mation charged the girl with being acces
sory after the fact of the robbery of Con
ductor Richardson. Lawyer Kinsley
appears for her on this ease also.
When Judge Hunt asked the girl her
name, she hesitated for a moment and
then replied, "Helen Forslund." The in
formation will be amended accordingly, as
she was only known as Bertie Miller at
Clark and the girl will plead to the
charges to-day, and the time for the trial
will be set. The first case tried will be
that againstClark for robbing Robert Ray.
If no conviction is had in this, he will be
tried for shooting the policeman. The
penalty in the ,highway robbery case can
be fixed at life in the penitentiary. For
shooting the policeman it cannot exceed
fourteen years. The charge which is ex
pected to be easiest to prove gainst the
girl is complicity in the Richardson
Berman Levy Appeals From the Finding
of the Court In Butte.
Papers in the appeal of Herman Levy
from the findings of the Butte court were
received by Clerk Kennedy, of the supreme
court, yesterday. Levy, it apipare, ran a
faro game at the race track in BWtte during
August of last year. Evan Morgan started
in to play, but as the cases never seemed tc
come right, and he lost about $100 he con,
eluded he had struck a brace grame. He
had a warrant issued for Levy's arrest, and
it was served by Sheriff Lloyd, of Silvcr
Bow. The sheriff captured the outfit. One
of the boxes was handed to the sheriff bi
Levy. It was a straight faro box. At the
same time Levy passed another
box to a by-stander. Lloyd cap.
tured that too. It was what is
known as a two-card box, an unfair con
trivance whion deprives faro of any element
of chance and gives the dealer a sure thing.
Levy was indicted on Nov. 5, 1890, was
found guilty and given the lowetst penalty,
six months in the penitentiary and $10C
fine. A motion for a new trial was over
ruled and an exception taken on the ground
that it had not been shown that
the brace box offered in evidence
against objections was ever used by Levy,
either on Aug. 18. when Morgan said he lost
his money, orft any other time; also that
the court erred in its instiuctions. The
instruction claimed to be erroneous was
that in which Judge McHatton told the
jury that if Levy had in his possession a
fair box and a two-card box, the possession
of the latter, if unexplained, tended to
show the defendant guilty; and that cir
cumstantial evidence of such a character as
to preclude every reasonable hypothesis
other than that of guilt, is entitled to the
same weight as direct testimony.
QuestIoning the Board's Authority.
The supreme court yesterday set the case
of the State of Montana against Dr. Carl
Sohultz for a hearing on Nov. 12. Dr.
Schult z was prosecuted in Deer Lodge
county by the state medical board for prao
tieing without their certificate. He was
convicted and fined and takes an appeal.
