Eleotrio Light and Water Works Systems Now in Course of Construction. BIllings. lozoman, Livingston, Great Falls, Lewistown, Deer Ledge and Missoula. KAT,5PELTns Oct. 29.-[Special..]-There is no livelier place in the state of Montana to-day than the town of Kalispell. The Iirge capital employed in the construotion of the many sulbstantial improvements to be seen on every hand has given an im petus to ognes at business and furnished em ployment to all who desire work. The most important of these improvements is the water works and electric light plant, which will be completed and in operation Dec. 1. The franchise, which included water works, electric light and telephone service, was granted by the city council to Chester B. Davis, of Chicago, lest June, and with the assistance of Boston capital isats the Kalispell Water and Electrio comrn pany was formed, with J. A. Coram as prees ident and J. F. Moffatt treasurer. Mr. Moffatt is the senior member of the firm of Moifatt, Hodgkine & Clark, of Syracuse, N. Y., who own over thirty water works systems In the United States. The capital stock of the company is $2F.0,000; $130,000 of this amount is required for the con s ruction of the plant, while the balance is reoarved for further extensions and imn provements. Seven miles of water mains have already been laid, and hydrants will be erected at every street intersection. The freight bill alone on the thirty carloads of annealed steel pipe and other apparatus amounted to $17,000. The machinery consists of two Dean p amps, each with a eapacityof 1,500, 000 gallons per day, and capable when com bined of supplying more water than is used in the city of Butte. These pumps are fed by two 125 horse power boilers. The water is taken from a well twenty four feet in diameter sunk in the gravel on the banks of Spring creek, about a mile and a half from the city, where the works are located. The water. from this clear and rapid running stream is thus filtered through fifth feet of gravel before reaching the well. The franchise vermitsthe grantee to use water from the creek should the sup ply from the well at any time prove insuili cient. A test by centrifugal pumps, how ever, shows that the well produces 3,uO0,000 gallons every twenty-four hours, and it will thus be seen that Kalispell can have no fear ol a water famine. The stand pipe is lo cated 140 feet above the town, inueuring a pressure for domestic purposes of seventy pounds to the square inch, while an electric valve connection has been made whereby with direct res ure this can be increased to 350 riounds per square inch in case of fire. This extra pressu e can be obtained at a moment's notice through the telephone service between the fire department hall and the water woeks plant. The poles have all been erected and forty miles of wire strung for the electric lights, while the wiring of the builuings through out the town is nearing completion. The city will be lighted by 2.000 candle power arc lights of the Woods system, the inoau dercent lights of the Westinghouse system can be found in every home. 'I h fire hall is so arranged that by throwing open thc doors the rooms will be lighted and thc alarm sounded. Politics excite a good deal of interest in this locality at uresent. The large registra tlon list of Kalispell and the outlyinrr dis tricte, giving a total of 1,854 inamres, has at tracted the attention of the central coom mittees of the state, and speake a are hold ing forth in the city three and four even ings out of the week.

Appearance or the Iturandl I)litrlct In Milwaukee-Amsount of ITnsuranIce. MIOWAUKr. Wis,, Oct. 29.-The scene in the burned district this morning is one of blackness and desolation. In twelve houre from six o'clock last night was crowded a destruction that will take more than as many months to repair, and much of the deatruotion wrought by the Hlames can never be restored. Starting in the store of the Union Oil company, on East Water street, the ftes swe;t before a fierce gale over thirteen blocks of residenoe and buti nese houses, more than three hundred houses in all, and caused a loss of four lives and $06,000,000 worth of property. It is known that four lives were lost and four persons badly hurt. Killed: Henry Peu denbrock and Charles Starr, dfreran, crushed under walls; Mrs. Kilalaan aid an unknown woman. died from the effects of the shook. It is feared the watchman of the Budd & Kipp Co. was burned in the factory. T'hat the loss of life 1s so small is causes for congratulation. A conservative estimate of the number of people rendered homelhse, based on the re cent registration in the burned districts, placea the number at 3.000. Nearly all are eour and have lost the little all they pea seesed and are dependent on outside help. Laout night hospitable citizens threw oien their homes to them, and means are being taken to provide for their immediate wants. Tlhe Gerrania society decided to turn over the receipts of the fair to be held next week. Several hundred business men as sembled at the board of trade this morning to arise funds for the fire sufferers. In a short time nearly $50,000 in subscription were announced, emiono them $5,(000 from the Brewers' association of Chicago. A committee was appointed to increase the sum to $10(K),000. Democratic candidates in this state subscribed $5,001. The exposition builduig, schools and chatches have been opened to the destitute. 'Ihe total loss to the ilnsurance companies is between $:,l,500,000 and $4.0,)0,000, divided between labout two lhundred companies. Secretary Wilson, of the underwriters, says all losses will be paid and no company crippled. MANIPUILATED TICKETS. The Union Pacifle Itiithered by home IRe cent D)iscoverles. CrOrce.o, Oct. "2.-([ Special.]J-There may be a thousand or there may be fifty thous and counte-feised and manipulated Union Pacific tickets in the hands of scalpers. This is the problem that confronts western passenger officials. The usual method of meeting such cases is to reduce rates to the prices quoted by the scalpers and freeze them down to the price they paid for the tickets, but in this case it is supposed the tickets were in a laige measure counter feited outright, although many have been fgnd of genuine issue which have been raised from short to long distance points. The trouble originated in the guaranteed non-counterfeitable and non-changeable tickets adopted by the Union Pacific and called the "Lomax" ticket. It is apparently the first principle from which the simplex ticket, invented by General Paesenger Agent Thrall, was evolved. Mr. 't'hrall got as far as the so called "Lomax" ticket and found it could be manipulated. IHe afterwards improved to the Iresent northwestern simplex ticket, which has never been manipulated. The Union Pacific adopted the uniform and has brought about a complication which may result in the loss of hundreds of thousands of dollars. It may result in a series of law suits if the Union lacific abandons the ticket and refuses to honor another one, but that seems to be the only way to pre vent widespread demoralization. Every Chicago west bound train is inter ested in the immediate withdrawal of the ticket, as all rates from the Missouti to Port land and Ogden are being cut by them. Union Pacific oflicils at Omaha ate investi gating the alleged forgeries. AN L ROAIID 'IOJECT. ily V1iclh lChIcalgo Will secure a I1ig Union i)epnt. Cl.'uiea;r.

Now York A,aosatNel PreC.I Il'urtrN, lOct. 29. -Emtperor William will open the reichtuag in person Nov. 22. While the imperial parliament is wrestling over the army bill the 1'rnsqina landtag, which is eummnoned to meet Nov. 9, will be in volved in a party fight on the fiscal reforms proposed by D)r. Mlquel, minister of finance. hBoth sessions will strain the en ergy of the ministers and produce crisis periods, yet the offioial cirele is confident the army bill will be approved, as they are also confident the pronosed budget will meet with acceptance. Prince Bismarak will not reappear in the reichetag. If the success of the coalition against the govern ment was absolutely secure with himself master of the situation he would not hesi tate again to take his seat, but the person who latest tried to interview him could not extort even a side-light on the prince's atti tude toward the iuoipendiug strauggle. Ilii criticism was chiefly personalities. The present ministers, he seid, are so insig nificant and the covering to the shield they present is so transparent that the em peror himself always shines through them. It is dangerous to the future of the mon archic idea, he added, for a ruler, even with the best intentions, to appear so frequently in the political field without a decent min isterial covering. Continuing, Prince Bis mearck said: "To fight with ministers who are men of straw has no char ms for me. Some of them cling through personal necessities to the posts that feed them. They have large fain ilies, or there are other things that de mand that they retain their oflices." This is interpreted as a spiteful allusion to Dr. von Boettcher, head of the imperial home office, and representative of the chancellor. "This sort of man," said Prince Bismarck, "is represented in the government of which Frederick the Great once said, they were amusing at table, but whom Frederick kicked out. Now they are not kicked out. The situation has no sword for me. My son is much less reeigned to be out of office than I am, but he has long seen that coni petition with certain ministers is only poe sible provided one previously wears lively for some years." Negotiations for a commercial treaty with Russia are about to be resumed. The programme of the independent so cialist party has finally been drafted, and it marks their definite secession from the democrats. The programme declares that workmen ought to reject state socialism in every form. They should rather enfeeble it and completely abolish the state. They should try to captu:e the means of pro duction and abolish capitalistic society through strikes, refusal to enter into legal obligations, etc. They should oppose all leading institutes of modern society, sueh as char ehbee, state schools, army bureauo racy, and parliamentaryism, and recon struct society on a basis of perfect equality without distinction as to sex. The mani festo is the embodiment of sheer anar chism. The party has a growing numbse of adherents in Germany. Socoalistic mem hers of the reichseag, Singer, Benele, Lieb necht and Auer, will seize the occasion of the great congress of the socialiet party, Nov. 14, to denounce the manifesto as anti socialistic. The social season that was opening bril liantly at the American legation was inter rupted by the news of Mrs. Harrison's death.
