The rules under which these selections are madle and passed upon apply to all such lands within six miles of a min Ing claim. MATTER OF RESIDENCE. Max Muir Lost His Property by not Living Upon It. The local land officers have just ren dered a decision in the contest case of Gust Anderson versus Max Muir, in volving 160 acres of land near Great Falls,. entered as a homestead by Muir. Anderson claimed that Muir lived In Great PFall, and not on the land. The decision of the local land officers says the testimony clearly establshes this claim. They say: "Residence was never acquired or maintained by the few vis its made to the land by Muir. who was doing business and making his actual residence at Great Falls, about eight miles away, and where he voted at the city election in the sprint of 1894. The improvements placed upon the land consist of a frame shack which was hauled onto it from Great Falls, and the breaking of three acres of ground. The house was practically without a stove (as the one taken there was broken to pieces) and was not in a habitable con dition. Three neighbors living from three-quarters to one and a half miles from the claim saw Muir but once or twice on or about the land." The secretary of the interior recently decided, in a case before him, that "residence is a matter of intention, evl denced by the acts of the party to make it so, and cannot be maintained by oc caslonal visits." The local officers say this fits the Muir case and recommend that his entry be cancelled. Didn't Act in Good Faith. The contest of Dominick H. Mellen versus Ambrose Alix has been decided by the local land ofticers in favor of the Ctntestant. It involves 160 acres near Stone Rtation, Granite county. Alix filed on the land Aug. 18, 1884, and made final proof Jan. 13, 1894. Mellen, on July 8. Ib,7. made a timber culture entry on part of the land. The testimony showed that Aix cultivated little or none of the land hims-lf, having it leased to a Chinaman. He owned none of the 4mprovements. Alix had also agreed to sell the property to one Charley Toni before making proof. No effort was made by Alix to explain or refute any of the charges. and the local ilfficers are tof the opltijnll he has not acted in good faith nor complied with the law. They order his entry can celled. JOTTINbGS ABOUT TOWN. The body of Mannie Schwartz was buried yelstelrday.

I.epry and otheiu.1 and the Accept None of the Pretended Substitutes FOR RoyBaking ROy a Powder BECAUSE inferior and cheaper made baking preparations are sold at wholesale at a price so much lower than RoYAl., some grocers are urging consumer , to buy them in place of the ROY\AL at the same retail price. If you desire to try any of the pretended substitutes for ROYAL BAKING POWDER bear in mind that they are all made from cheaper and inferior ingredients, and are not so great in leavening strength nor of equal money value. Pay the price of the ROYAL BAKING POWDER for the RoYAL only. It is still more important, however, that RovYAL BAKING POWDER is purer and more wholesome and makes better, finer, and more healthful food than any other baking powder or preparation. ROYAL BAKING POWDER CO., 106 WALL ST., NEW-YORK. I'mnle Sam, by J. W. Connell and Michael Carr. In the district court yesterday, County Attorney Nolan filed Informations against Louis Hen charging him with grand lar ceny and burglary In the first degree. Hlen was arraigned upon the charges, and ordered by Judge Buck to be ready to plead Dec. 10. The United States court has ordered the bond of Sam McCoy forfeited. McCoy was indicted last winter on the charge of sell ing liquor to Indians. He gave ball and his case was allowed to go over to another term. When it was called at this term of the United 8tates court McCoy did not appear. The silver and marble fountain mount ed a few days ago in the main corridor of the court house is attracting much favor able attentiln. Its beauty of design is commented upon by all who see It for the first time. The water has ben turned on, and it now provee a practical ornament as well as a thing of beauty. The big team of bays that was recently purchased by the fire department are pro. gressing finely in their training. Yire Marshal Reece hag gven the horsee every attention, and they show splendid care and treatment. The horses are beginning to understand what is expected of them as soon as the big gong In the station sounds the alarm. The penalty for the offense for which J. A. corum and the Butte and Mon.ana com. pany were Indicted by the federal grand jury is not over $600 fine, to which the court may add not more than six months' imprisonment. The offence is a violation of the regulations made by the interior department under the act of June'L. 1S78, allowing the cutting of timber for mining and domestic purposes, and providing against the destruction of timber by ftires. 57.50 For a 106-piece decorated dinner set. $3.50 for a 12-piece decorated chamber set.
