The pavement on the roadway of the Higgins avenue bridge will prob ably have to Ibe torn up and relaid during the coming summer. Street Commissioner Price came to this con clusion after an inspection of the "buckled" pavement yesterday. There seems to be no escape from the an nual spring fight against upheavals in the pavement so long as the present wood blocks are kept in the street. The cost to the city each spring ap proximates $500 and it will be cheap er for the city to put in a new pave ment and end all trouble forever. The ,blocks in the present pavement were not sufficiently creosoted and absorb water whenever there is a thaw or a rain. Freezing weather after a soaking causes the blocks to expand and "buckle." This difficulty has been encountered every year and it has cost the city a good deal of money to stamp the blocks back into position. Each recurrence of the trouble seems to be worse than the last one-certainly the upheaval with which Mr. Price*is now contending is the worst that has ever occurred. There are hummocks in the roadway every five or six feet and even the pavement between the car tracks has buckled and cracked. "I don't .believe that the pavement touches the bridge anywhere," said Mr. Price yesterday. "Pvery square inch of it is raised above the concrete flooring." One cause of the trouble is in the concrete guards on either side of the street car track. The wooden curbs at the edge of the roadway don't give much trouble, but water seeping under the concrete curbs beside the track gets under the pavement and boosts the pavement into the air. For the present Mr. Price will go no farther than to cut the pavement down to fit the bridge. In the sum mer a 'pavement of thoroughly creo soted blocks that will not absorb water will probably be put in on the bridge. 'C. A. WELLINGTON BURIED. Many relatives and friends assem bled at the Marsh chapel yesterday afternoon to pay the last tribute to t'. A. VWellington whose funeral was con ducted at 2 o'clock by Rev. J. W. Ben net.

PHERSON, BUTTE'S DISTINGUISHED YOUNG ARTIST Will Appear as Soloist, at the Elks' Hall, February 27, 1913 -The Important Musical Event of the Season. Miss Louise MacPherson, the distin guished young pianist, whom Butte Justly claimlns as its own, commenced the study of music at the age of 6, I and five mlonths afterward made her first appearance at a charity concert. She played her first concerto (Mo zart's in A major), with string ac companiment, at the age of 8, and one year later won it special piano schol arship given by l)r. Edward Fisher, director of the Toronto Conservatory of Music, the second largest music school in America, in connection with over 100 musical students all in their teens, while she was but nine years of age. Like Joscf Hoffman and other musi cal geniuses, Miss MacPherson pos sesses "absolute pitch," and the fur ther gift of "transposition" also early asserted itself. Her playing is de scribed as combining ':the solidity of the German, the elegance of the French, and the brilliance of the American schools of musical art." She is an exponent of what might be termed "Del Canto" in piano playing, o,r in other words a tonal distinction tha't mystifies and astobibhes the lis' tener.

THE LEADER DAVIS AND WATKINS ARE WINNERS NEWCOMERS TO UNIVERSITY WIN TRYOUT FOR WASHING TON STATE DEBATE. Gordon Watkins and Horace Davis will represent the university in the coming debate with Washington State college. These two men were chosen at a try-out in assembly hall last night. Mr. Boddy and Alva Baird also took part in the try-out. It hap pened that two of the competitors last night suPlprted the affirmative of the question and two the negative. In view of this fact the subject was de bated pro and con under the rules us ually governing debates. 1Watkins and Boddy took the affirmative and Davis and Baird opposed the question. .The question on which the men spoke and which will be debated when Montana meets Washington state is, "Resolve.d, That a Minimum Wage Scale to be Operative in Workshops, Factories and Department Stores Should Be Provided for by Law, Con-. stitutionality Granted." Montana will take the affirmative. This is the question on which an other Montana team will debate a trio of speakers fro mthe state agricul tural college next month. In this other debate .Montana ,will take the negative. The debate coach had planned to have both Montana teams take the negative in order that they might work with each other. Delays over which the coach and the Kalmin seem greatly excited, but which haven't stirred the. student body to any noticeable extent prevented Mon tana from securing a choice of sides so that co-operation between the teams will hardly be possible. The try-out last night was attend ed by a large crowd and was unusu ally interesting. All of the speakers tfir and former director of the Im ierial Conservatorium of Music, Mos cow. About two years ago Mr. Safo noff's orchestra engagements which take him all over Europe began to nmultply- to such an extent, and not. wishing to leave Berlin, Miss Mac Pherson enrolled as a pupil of Paul (ioldschmidt, and to this wonderful piano virtuoso she owes much of her extraordinary artistic growth and musical greatness; however, local music lovers will always insist that she was an artist before her departure fur foreign shores. Miss MacPherson, in her youth, is blessed with a most charming person ality and marvelous vitality. Her pleasing manner and easy grace in her performances both charm her au diences and win her countless friends and admirers. Miss MacPherson is destined to be come a famous musician. Miss Mac Pherson will tour the states of Mon tana and Idaho, giving concerts In every city of importance, and she will use the Kimball concert grand piano in all of .her performances. Miss Macpherson will play in con cert in Missoula at the Elks' hall, Thursday, Feb. 27, 1913. A-sisting artist. Mrs. T. A.

Both members of the team that will represent Montana In the 1Washington debate, are newcomers to the univer sity. Horace Davis represented the state agricultural college in the de hate against the university last year. He and his teammate easily bested the university speakers and there was no little jubilation on the campus when Davis came here. WVatkins is also a new man and a debater of ex perience.
