HOLDING THE SACK
IN HELENA FRIENDS OF WHEATLAND AND RICHLAND COUNTIES ARE DOUBLE-CROSSED. (Staff Correspondence.) Helena, Feb. 28.-From a source be lieved to be absolutely reliable, it is learned tonight that Chairman Holt of the committee on new counties and county division, has declared that his committee will not hold another ,meet ing. For this reason the senate bills of Richland and Wheatland counties will never see daylight. These two bills came over from the, senate today, and were referred to Holt's committee. Under the rules of the house no com mittee may be required by the house to report on a lill in its hands until the bill has been with *the committee seven days. As there are not seven days between this and ,the last day of the session, thie committee may hold the bills until after adjournment. Only a. two-thirds vote of the house could reach the bills by amending the rules. That vote is impossible. Thus it will be seen that the friends of Richland and Whea'tland counties are left holding the sack. However, this is not the first case 'in which the bi-partisan senate combine has'pulled off a "double-cross." MORE THAN A SCORE PERISH IN FLAMES (Continued From Page. One) Cummings, a bartender, who had a room on the Farnum street side, opened a window and plunged from the third story to the sidewalk. He struck headfirst on the concrete walk and was instantly killed. Mrs. C. E. Wilkins, who, with her sister, had a room on the second floor, .facing an alley In the rear, dragged her sister, Miss Alice Bionnevue, to the window. There Miss B3onnevue col lapsed and Mrs. Wilkins was forced to jump for her own life. Two policemen broke her fall, but she was badly in jured. Her sister's body is in the ruins. Last to Leave. Jesse D. Nold, night clerk, was the last living person to leave the build ing. (He opened the door of his office on 'the second floor when he heard an explosion, and was driven back by a puff of smoke and flame. He at temlpted to arouse a few guests on that floor, but was forced to go to the street, almost overcome, to save his own life. The few guests whio es catapd from the second-story windows or from the one entrance on the Thir teenth street side, did so in scanty at tire. They were carried .to a drug store across the street and to a nearby restaurant, and later cared for at neighboring hotels. A block watchman who had entered the hotel to report, discovered the fire and turned in a still alarm by tele phone. He rushed out, found the t .;thing store of the Raphael-Pred f company in flames, and turned in a second and third alarm, which brought out the entire downtown fire fighting force. When the firemen reached the scene the building was a mass of flames. Firemen saw many forms at windows in the upper stories, but before lad ders could ibe raised the roof began to Last Chance Today Five Big Volumes $2.35 Everybody's Cyclopedia Regularly Selling at $12.00 The great distribution carried in by The Missoulian for the past few weeks will be brought to an end tonight.

Pat terson, head of the National Cash Register company, sentenced for a year in prison for violating the anti trust law, is a man with a remarkable personality. He has built a great in stitution from small beginnings, forcing out competitors the while. Pattersoti is & faddist. He is also perhaps the leading citizen of Dayton. Dayton is not so large but that the affairs of Patterson and the National Cash Register are of considerable in. terest to Patterson's fellow citizens. Several years ago when Patterson returned from a trip to Europe he brought with him an Englishman whom he had taken into his service, and who was known as Mr. Palmer. Palmer had originally been engaged in the role of a valet. Shortly after his arrival at Dayton, however, he developed other calablilities. 1)aytonians were interest ed to learn that Palmer was a very excellent 'physica.l direc(tor, had some unique and original ideas as to the proper maintainence of health as well as highly developed appreciation of the aesthetic. Patterson seemed im pressed with Palmer's notions. At Palmer's suggestion the officers of the National Cash Register com pany were advised to ride horseback a.t certain hours of the day. The early morning hours were particularly recommended. The equestrian sport was great exercise, observed Palmer. Some of the officials objected to Palmer and his advice. Butter was scratched off the menus in the lunchroom of the establish ment. "Never cat butter" was one of Palmer's motioes. After Palmer had been around the shop at Dayton awhile it became the customn for the empulloyes to pause in the course of the afternoon and have tea. Palmer instituted a number of new depart ures all of which met with Patter son's approval. cave in, and not a single perison was rescued. That the ibasement into which the blurning interior fell within half an hour after the1 fire started contains not less than 40 b,((dies is the belief of Fire c'hief Salter. There was no way to reach them for many hours tafter the buildling collapsed. The rear walls fell in on the mass, and all were buried beneath tons of debris. It is e.lieved that the fire started in the rear, probably in the furnace roomll of the basem(ent. Perslons in the vicinity at the tilne say ther was alln explosionr, "tl(l'arently of gas, and in a few minutes the entire interior was in flames. A Hero. izzie Steiss, a paper carrier, was one of the heroes of the fire. He was preparing to start with his morning route and was one of the first at the fire. Even before the firemen arrived he rushed into thel building and began assisting the night clerk to,( arouse those asleep in the bui.ding. Ile helped drag several half-dazed persons from thle building, and was nearly suffocated. Jesse Nold, who represents the lnl, agemnt of the hobtel, prolbablly saved the lives of over a score of l(persons. HeI was awak'ened lby the cry of fire, and, half dressed, hurried through the smoke-filled hail!ways arlousing guestsi of Lhe hlotel. He succeeded 'in getting a nmblner of persons ouit u1f the lurn ing huilding, all of them half-clad. Thlley 'were tl(ken to nlearby places (of refuge for the time. Bitter Cold. Bitter cold made conditions almost unllearablle. The firemen had hardly got streams on the blurning hoitel un 1til frozen pipe lines began to burst. They caused an Ilnll pedill'slt to the efforts of the firclllcmen and reduced for sonme time the efficiency of the fire figlting force. It is now believed the loss of life JOHN M. PATTERSON. The N. C. Ti. plant at Dayton covers acres of ground and is a imr vel of system andl liusiness efficifency. It is surrounded 'by landscape garden ing of unusual beauty. There are pleasant little cottagtes toi be had at reasonable rent by the cImp lo'yes. There is an athletie field and even a country club and playgroundl for the mothers and children. t)n every hand is to lie seen somle exvidenlce of Pat terson's ideas. was caused by a gas explosion in the rea.r of the build ing. )nlyI a few weeks ago there was discove'red a liakinig gas main, which anuised the mlnalnge lelln't of the hoteI l ito ar i use all the gueists. The explosiosn this lmorniing is beliteved to Ihave resulted froit a simi lar tcondition. The suddetnness with which the fire sec.ured headwl:y indicates that this condition existed.

It setnt the lad der baik and prevented several per Sills at tihe wintldi\\ s fri'o scapling.
