While considering an ordinance to pay J.
.Boucher balance due on sewer contract
here was a little sconce. Under a previous
esolution of the council all contractors for
ity work are required to furnish proof
hat they have satisfied all claims for
hich loins can be laid before final pay
cnt is made on the contract. In auditing
he bill this fact was referred to. Mr.
oncher, who was present, asked if it
eant, as he understood it, that he must
urnish an affidavit ,that 4e had paid all
ille'befare he got his money. i he mayor
eplied that he must furnish proof as re
uired by the council's resolution. Mr.
loncher said that he had paid all his bills
or labor, but not those for material fur
iaished. Under the council's rule he would
e required to borrow money of the banks
o pay these bills before he could get what
ias due him. His bond should be good
nough to indemnify the city. "Gentle
en of the council," he continued, "you
are making a rule to compel a poor man to
pay tribute to the Shylocke of the city. If
that is the rule, I will take my medicine
and depend on the future to pay it back."
When the ordinance was passed, Mr. Bou
cher again addressed the couneil, saying
excitedly that he would furnish no more
"I will not stand that!" exclaimed the
"Thsu have me arrested," retorted Mr.
Boucher, "and I'll pay my dlue."
"1 can order you out of the room," re
joined the mayor, but he did not do so, as
er. Boucher said nothing further.
Subsequently it was ordered that the city
clerk draw the warrant for Mr. Bonoher on
the latter's bondsmen concurring in assum
ing responsibility to hold the city harmless
from liens.
There was another little scene over the
matter of filling in behind the wall at the
Hale property. Robert H. Hale wt present
and protested against the street commis
saoner dumping on his ground. Hessid the
matter had been explained to Mayor
Kleinachmidt. The mayor said the attest
commissioner was only carrying out the
wishes of the council in order to lay a side
walk along the Hale property. Alderman
Witmer said there was a question as to the
area wall of Mr. Hule's property, as part
of the ground was in dispute. Mr. Hale
said they would lind out who owned it. The
work was ordered suspended pending a act
tlement of the dispute.
Among the bills ordered paid was that of
Dr. Rockmnan for $160 and Dr. Balvail for
$10 for attendance on John Miller, who
was shot by Special Policeman Dooney, and
one for $67 for nursing Polioeman Grogan.
Mayor ltleiuechmidt abated that the Miller
bill was rendered necessary by the careless
ness of an officer of the city. In reply to a
queation by Alderman Thompson as to
what the carelessness consisted of, the
mayor replied briefly, "Drank."

acter of Little Dot, in "A Turkish Bath,"
she is petite in appearance,,and has ae h a 7
childish voice that it is har to believe that 7
more than twelve years have passed over
her pretty little head. It was at a Saturday
matinee, and a little nilse of Ave or six years
of age had been watching Little Dot with
the liveliest interest. .finally; when, Mi

across the footlights and won a welcoming
smile from Little Dot. "A Turkish Biath'

If there is one .thing in Montana that
from its merits and enterprise deserves pa
tronage it is the shirt factory of Harris
Brothers, 119 and 121 North Main street. It
is a veritable case of bearding the lion in
his den, and it is the duty of our citizens
to patronize home industries whenever
they have an opportunity. There are
thousands of dollars of orders taken by
representatives of eastern houses which
should be given to this establishment, and
the money thus kept in circulation in this
To use the words of the head of the con
cern, "We meet the prices of any reputa
ble eastern factory, and if the citizens of
this community will give us the work at
the same prices they pay other dealers we

we now employ." Mr. Harris informs us
they have fifteen machines at work, but ex

This factory is one of the many which
are essential to Helena's prosperity, and it
should receive the patronage it deserves.

'The Northern Paoofio Men's Outfit
When Fenoing in Cannon's
Motion Reetraining Judge Fleie
ohor Trying the Case Argued
and Submitted.
Judge Knowles Charges the United Staten
Orand Jury-Jistr~it Court hunt
ness-Admintted to Practice.
The motion of the Northern Pacific for
an' injunction to prevent Judge Fleisher
trying the case of C. W. Cannon against
the railroad company for unlawfully taking
possession of land claimed by the latter on
the west side was 'argued in the United
States court yesterday. George F. Shelton
appeared for the company and John B.,
Clanyberg for Cannon. A , feature of the
case was the reading of a number of aif
davits bearing on the fencing in of the
land by the railroad people on Saturday
night, May 12. James Fahay's affidavit
was to the effect that ue knew the land in
dispute. He says: "I wia employed by
the Noithero Pacific railroad company,
through Thos. Cooney, its agent, on May 12,
3891, to build a fence on the land; about
twenty other men were employed at the
same time, a portion of them for the pur
pose of building fences, a portion for the
purpose of standing guard and one or
two- as cooks for the entire outft.
Those employed as guards were armed with
pistols, shotguns and rifles, and also had
ammunition. Mr. Cooney carried a re
volver on his person. Beer iri bottles and
kegs, and whisky in bottles, were kept on
the premises, and used quite, freely by a
portion of the men during the first part of
their employment. Mr. Cooney was sleep
ing and staying at the camp. Mr. J. H.
McDermott, one of the employee of the
Northern Pacific, was among the men on
the premises. The words 'Fort McDer
mott' were painted on a board and nailed
on the cabin built by the min in the em
ploy of the Northern Pacifiý. This board
was so placed that it should be read from
the cars of the motor street railway on
Knight street, which runs through the
ground in dispute. A flume across one of
the gulches on the premises was torn up
and destroyed under Mr. Cooney's orders.
His orders were to tear down all the old
fences and to take the material to the camp
and burn it. These orders were carried out
and the fences destroyed accordingly.
About all the fuel that the men have used
upon the premises since we first went there
has been from the fences that were torn
down." Other affidavite were to the same
effect. That of William Wallace was that
the men at Fort McDermott had said "that
Saturday night had been selected because
no process could be had against them on
Sunday, and they could not be interfered
with in their work." Judge Knowles took
the care under advisement.
United States Grand Jury.
Judge Knowles gave the usual instruc
tions to the United States grand jury in his
court yesterday after they had been sworn
in. He called attention to the violations of c
the law against selling liquor to Indians, I
offenses agtinast morality in sending obh
scene letters through the mail, the counter
feiting of coin, and other matters for
which people are locked up pending inves
tigation. The grand jury went into session -
in the coroner's office in the basement of
the court house, and adjourned for the day
without making return to cout t of any
findings. The most serious case they have
to investigate is that of Charley Red Horn,
the Nes Perce Indian, who is charged with
braining a Flathead with an ax in a fight
over a girl.
District Court Business.
Judge Hunt, in the district court yester- l
day, imposed a fine of $10 and costs on
George H. Pew, who was convicted of
cruelty to animals in leaving his horses
without sufficient food. James Fleming
and William Turubull, charged with grand
larceny, plead not guilty. J. M. Clements
will defend them. Ex-Policeman Michael r
Dooney, charged with assault with a deadly
weapon in shooting John Miller, had his
time to plead extended to to-day.
Admitted to Practice.
The supreme court yesterday admitted to
practice Rufus C. Garland. of this city, for
merly of Arkansas. He is a son of Ex-At
torney General Garland. T. E. Crutcher
moved Mr. Garland's admission, which was
granted on a certificate from the supreme
court of Arkansas. The supreme court also
admitted to practice Walter W. Proul, of
Neihart, formerly of Missouri.
