VERY CLEVER Al EITHEi.
A Helena Doctor Who Can Fight or Physic, and Physic or Fight One Story That Was Good Until the Other Story Was Told. A Lost Boy VWho May Be Recogni.ed by His Scar--Missoula County's Latest Itesouree. There is a physician in Helena who is quite an exponent of the art of self-de fense, who can take pretty good care of himself with or without five ounce gloves, and who has the size and strength to baco his professional julgment when it is im peached. There are other physicians who no doubt answer the same description, but this 0to v only has reference to this par. ticular one. A few nights ago he was called to attend a man who had been hurt on the railroad. The injured man was sur rounded by a number of his companions who were trying to do all they could until the doctor c, me. When the physician reached the scene he naked the crowd to stsnd back, and proceeded to examine the man's injuries. They weren't near so seri ous as the crowd had supposed, and the doctor washed the wound, took a few stitches in it and started to leave. Some of the crowd thought the doctor hadn't done enough and began expostulating with him. The doctor is a very quiet and reserved man, who knows his business, but don't feel inclined to enter into apologies or explanations. Finally one of the injured man's friends began abusing the doctor roundly, and barred the passage to the door. t)thers chimed in. The doctor stood it as long as he thought he was justified in doing so. and then he let out his right fist. One of the men dropped. The left shot out, and an other dropped. For a few minutes the air' was fall of fists, stars and gore. The doc tor wasn't even touched by the many fists that were aimed at him. When the crowd thought they had enough they quit on their own accord,. The doctor sewed up a few cuts which his knuckles had made, and was generous enough not to charge for the ser vice. One story is good until another is told. Such was the conclusion that Judge Gage came to after spending the better part of yesterday afternoon in listening to tile evi dence in a case of petit larceny. Brown-i that name is as good as any other for the purpose-went into the judge's office yes terda) and asked for a warrant for Smith for instance-on the charge of stealing his bob sled and selling it to Jones. Brown said that Smith had deliberately gone to the stable where he kept his bob sled, taken it off, and sold it. A warrant was issued, and Smith was arrested. The evi dence, even that of the prosecuting witness, went to show that Brown had at one time rented part of the stable from which the sled was alleged to have been stolen. The sled had been left on the adjoining lot for a for a long time, so long that nobody about there knew who it belonged to. Smith asked the owner of the stable if he could have it, as he had a chance to sell it. The owner of the stable was glad to see it moved away, and answered "yes." Smith thereupon sold it to Jones, who expended some money in putting it in shape for use. Then Blrown wanted it, and hence the arrest. Judge Gage severely lectured the complaining wit ness on putting the county to the expense of trying such a case, which should have been settled in a civil action. "The sled is yours," said the judge, "as soon as you ar range with the man who has it in regard to the amount he has expended for repairs." The accused was honorably dismissed from custody. "If there was any chance of col lecting it, I would assess all the costs to tte prosecuting witness," added Judge Gage. John Gill, of 599 West Main street, this city, would like to have information as to the whereabouts of his nine-year-old son, John. The little fellow left home about four months ago, and though he is sup posed to be in Wickes, nothinx has been hoard from him definitely since. 'ihere should be no trouble about recognizing the boy. He was blown up with giant powder a couple of years ago and was badly marked. There is a scar on the forefinger of the light hand and one on the right temple, the latter made by the surgeon's lancet. lie also has a small pebble in the end of his tongneand limps a little. When he left honie lie wore a blue shirt waist.and gum boots. lie is short, with light hair and blue eyes. Much Las been said and written of the boundless resources of Missoula county. The fame of the Bitter Root is wideiy known. lBut if the Stevensville News is really serious in one of its statements, the fame of Missoula county will be stamered indelibly upon the history of the country. All manner of grain can he raised here, but the crop which the News reports stands without a parallel and cannot be destroyed by gras.hoppers, sand flies or potato Lugs. Slate is the story: "For the second time in five years triplets have been born to the wife of Henry Travis, who keeps the toll honse near Gibbonsville. The mother and children are healthy and chipper, and Mrs. Trrvis says she would not miud if four were to coule next time. 'lT'h coupli have nine children, all of whom are strong ohysically and in possession of their facul ties; il fact the six older children are more than usually intelligent. and the oldest, a boy of nine years. gives promise of being a great painter. Mr. and Mrs. 'Travis were married at l'ainted P'ost, Now York. elevon years ago. lie was at that time a farmer ani ashe wias a schil teacher, 'Thirty uonths iafter their mar - singe their first child was born; three years later twins, one buy and one girl were add edl to the fairily, and two years later trip lets, all girls, were quietly ushered into the i world. 'That interesting incident happenled just about three years ago and the happy parents were greatly surprised, but threy were simply astounded when on Nov. 18, another trio of infantile beauties, all bhvs, with hungry mouths and lusty lunge, be catne members of the little household. Dr. Matin. who was with the mother when the last children were born, says that the Travis case has no parallel in the annals of obstetrics." ior a turne ,ligh or Piortland cutter, niUshi rob-r , ,,tc. i ., to F. i Power ,'r o.

THE WRIT IS SUSTAINED, Motion to Quash It in the Box Elder Case Over ruled. But Two of the Judges Conourred in the Court's De oiesion. Further Arguments In the Case to Be Heard To-Morrow Morning on a Demurrer. When the supreme court convened yester day morning Chief Justice Blake and Asso ciate Justices DeWitt and Harwood were present, including counsel for E.E. Leach, the republican contestant, and for the Choteau county canvassing board and a few epecta tore. The chief justice announced that a majority of the court were of the opinion that the motion made by the attorneys for the canvassing board to quash the alterna tive writ of mandate should be overruled. In announoing the decision the chief justice did not give any reasons in support of the majority's ruling.1 Later, he said, an opinion would be prepared and filed in the case on the motion to quash when the merits of the case are submitted for de cision. The attorneys for the canvassing board were then given until two p. m. to file a demurrer to the writ of alternative mandate. The demurrer was filed and takes the following grounds: First. That said writ was not issued by the supreme court of the state of Montana. or by any court having authority to inssne the same. Second. That said pretended writ ap pears to be issued, from an inspection of the records of said court, during the vaca tion of said court, and attested during the vacation of said court, by the clerk thereof. Win. J. Kennedy, and without any order of said court. Third. That this honorable court has no juriseiction to inquire into the matters set forth in said pretended writ, or to compel the respondents to recanvass, or recount any votes whatever. Fourth. '1 hat the records of this court show that there has been no application to this honorable court for said writ by said relator, or any one in his behalf. Fifth. That this alternative writ of man date does not state facts sufficient to entitle the relator to the relief demanded therein. Sixth. This honorable court has no power or authority to hear and determine, or issue, a writ of mandate, except in aid of its appellate jurisdiction. Seventh. This honorable court has no power or authority to enquire into the sub ject matter set forth in said alternative writ, for the reason that it appears that a commission has been issued by lawful au thority to Alfred B. Hamilton, as a member of the house of representatives, from the county of Choteau, and that under the law, and the constitution, the said Hamilton is now a member of the legislature of the state of Montana, and the court cannot, by writ of mandate, inquire into his election, or order a commission to be issued to any other person. Eighth. It appears from the affidavit, and the alternative writ of mandate filed herein, that the office to which the relator is seeking a certificate is now filled by an in rumbent, under color of title, who has a commission regularly issued by lawful au thority. The court announcel that it would hear arguments on the demurrer at 10 a. m. to moriow. District Court Business.
