WIDOWS AND ORPHANS,
The Anelent Order of United Work men to Build a Home in Montana. All the Lodges of the State to Help the Fund Along. The Anniversary of the Order on Oct. 27 to Be Made the Occsulon for the Start. Thursday. Oct. 27, will be the twentyJ fourth anniversary of the institution of the Anclent Order of United Workmen by J. J. Upohuroh. at Meadville, Pa. The occa sion will be made use of by the lodges of the order in Montana to start a fund for the erection of a widows and orphans homle. By a resolution adopted at the last meet ing of the grand lodge of Montana all the subordinate lodges in the state were re quested to give an entertainment on Oct. 27, and contribute the proceeds toward the widows and orphans home fund, 'Ilil building of such a home meets with great favor among the memlers of the order. It isto intended to be a shelter for the widows and orphans of members, where they can go in case they need a home. lesides this the idea is to have the horme also a hts pital where members of the order may go when sick or injured and where it may bt possible for them to sr end the remainder of their days should they meet with an ao cident and become permanently disabled. For this reason it is hoped to locate the home somewhere near a medicinal spring and on the line of one of the big railroads. The ground once secured, the money on hand will be used to start the building, which is expected to cost about $%0,(t)0. The balance of the money needed will be raised among the members of the order in such way that it will not bear heavily upon anyone. In this way the horme, it is calcu lated, can be finished and paid for in about four years. It will be the first place of the kind gotten up by an order in this state. At first the idea was suggested of having a national home for the order. It was thought, however, that snch an institution would not be a success, ownag to the dilli culty of finding a location that would be eentral enough for the 300,000 members. and the fact that its management could not be successfully curried on by directors liv ing in all parts of the United States and Canada. So it was determined to make it a state affair. The Helena lodges will do their part toward raising a fund by an entertainment. Capital lodge No. 2 and Mount Helena lodge No. 1, Degree of Honor, will give a grand literary entertainment and ball at Electrio hall in this city on Oct. 27. Some of the best local talent have volunteered their services and the affair promises to be a great success. The management of the affair is.in the hands of the following com mittees: Executive Committee-James Sullivan chairman, H. C. Yaeger, C. P. Connolly. Eungene Meyers and J. W. Allen, of Capitol lodge No. 2; Mrs, A, N. Adams, Mrs. Emma Fretz, Mrs. August Fack, Mrs. H. C. Yaecer and Mrs. A. W. Ecklmind, of Mount Helena lodge No. 1. Degree of Honor.

A litalgr by the ltupraten Court AetPa-. the (tmealr tlllet.* Ias Axoanas, Cal,, Oct. 14--Thie sta supreme contt of California today in the case of Baston vs. Brown, being the appli. cation of the non-partisan political tao, tion of San Francisco for a writ of man date to compel the registrar of votes to place the name of a non-partisan on the municipal ticket to be voted for next elec tron, decided adveasely to the plaintiffs, on the ground that the sections of the political code providing for the voting of straight tickets by atrmling the ticket heading or party designation at the head of the tloket, are unconstitutional. The court holds that the oflicial ballot should be printed without ihe party designation of any pa ty at the hAad of ticket, and that voters can only express their choice by stamping op punolt uach name or proposition voted for, except the presidential electors, who may he voted for by a single stamp opposite the party group on the ticket. Each individual candidate's noame, however, will be fol lowed on the printed ballot by the party's designetion. Thr court was unanimous in the drci.iou, r hich is considered an impos tant one by ill parties. Perlshed in the Storm.
