Eleotrio Light and Water Works
Systems Now in Course of
BIllings. lozoman, Livingston, Great
Falls, Lewistown, Deer Ledge and
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
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

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.

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.

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
The social season that was opening bril
liantly at the American legation was inter

death. Mrs. Phelps had issued invitations
to a dinner in honor of Minister White, at
which Chancellor von Caprivi. Gen.
ISchouvaloff, Russian amsbabsador, and
other dignitaries would have been present.
The invitations were withdrawn when it
was learned that Mrs. 1Harrison was dead.
