Thiere applears to be a goid deal of
miisiunderstanding regarding the prop
osition which has been referred to the
,,lters of Misstoula, regarding the, sale
of the Main street fire station and the
purchase of the Marsh property on
the opposite side of the street. The
first nisallpprehensiion which exists
seems to be contcerning tihe origin of
the suggestion; thie proposal did not
come from Mr. Marsh; it was made by
the city officers after consultation
with some of the city's business nten.
There can he no question as to the
desirability of the proposed exchange,
tei think, if it is found that the city
is in a. position to handle the fin.an

The other morning, in these columns, the statement ol
fact was made that "for more than a year the Amalgamate,
interests have owned, maintained and paid the monthly
deficiency for the publication of their local organ, the Mis
- soula Sentinel. For the production and distribution ol
r: this publication, there has been paid, out of the Amalga_
mated war chest, about $2,700 each month, this being th,
deficit after the collection of what could be levied in the
, way of advertising and subscription from the loca
5 community."
We find that we erred in one statement of fact. Upor
fuller investigation, it appears that the monthly deficiency
is, on an average, close to $3,000.
o The big copper interests probably believe that the expend
iture of that amount each month, for the maintenance of
their local publicity bureau, is good business for them in
the long run, in the way of moulding public opinion; or
possibly they get that amount of satisfaction out of having
their hired men vent their wrath upon those they hate
and fear.
Anyway, that is their business and no one has any spe
cial objection to their spending their money in that way, if
they so desire. The only thing they should not attempt,
is to try to fool the local community as to their ownership.
Why should they deny in public print, what they freely ad
mit in private?
The Sentinel is not one of their "subsidized" newspapers;
it is owned by the Amalgamated people outright. The
press on which the Sentinel is printed, every piece of type
and every fixture in the shop, is owned, bought and paid for
by the Amalgamated interests.
Of course, they went through the motions of giving it a
corporate existence, but the purchase price was paid and
the money is sent over by them from Butte to pay the run
ning expenses. In fact, sometimes their local hired man
has to go over to Butte, once or twice a month, to bring
back the expense money and to get his orders.
It seems queer that the mere mention of the plain facts
in the case should cause the local bureau representative to
become as enraged as he must have been when Wednesday
night, he emitted an unusual amount of hate and wrath and
spleen in the publicity bulletin. Why not be calmer about
this matter? The local hired man has not a dollar to lose;
his pay check will come as regularly, his meals will digest
more easily and his conscience will be clearer, if he will sim
ply acknowledge what everybody knows to be the truth
that the Missoula Sentinel is owned, operated and main
tained by the Amalgamated interests for some purpose.
What is that purpose? The real owners of the Sentinel
say that its special mission is to "break The Missoulian."
They say The Missoulian is obstreperous. We hope the
special mission will fail.
The Missoulian is not perfect. It is human in its in
stincts and ideals, just as the men who make it are human
-just that much and no more. The Missoulian has sought
faithfully to represent the best interests of this community.
It might be unfortunate for the community if these folks
should "break The Missoulian." There might sometime
in the future be another "university consolidation scheme"
or something of that sort put up to the community. In
that event the community would be in hard lines with the
local publicity agency in the hands of the Hessians.
What could Washington have done at Trenton or at Val
ley Forge with Hessians to fight his battle?
Isthmuiis. If our work is going to be of
assistance to other tropical coluntries,
o'owe must show that the expenses of
sanitation nit within the limits of

Modern Women
By Frederic J. Haskin.
'liThe American woman is credited
with being the most extravagant being
on earth as regards her clothes. The
arrival of an Americad heiress is re
garded as far more important by tle
tradeslnen of Europe than that of any
reigning sovereign. Even royalty has
not such unllimited sunts of inoney at
its disposal tand certainly is not so
reickless regarding its expenditures.
The expenditures of the E.llltress Jose
phine for many years were considered
record-breakling in fetmlinine extrava
gance of toilette, but there are Ameri
can womlen who each year exceed the
$90,000 which Napoleon plroivided for
her allowance. Wi'hen onle woman is
taxed $30,000 duty upon personal arti
cles brought over from Europe in a
single year, in addition to the money
spent in tills country, the sum of $100,
000 mlay rtattdily lbe accounted for.
When a single hat brought over to
this country is sold at it loss for the
sum1 of $260, it would seem that ex
travagance had almost reached the cli
Imax, although thle dealers each season
tell of n\\ extremles. The trousseau
of a bride a gecneration ago was sup
iposed to be liberal in the extreme if it
cnst $2,000. Now it is lpossible to ex
pend that sumt for the wedding dress
alone if the right grade of lace is used,
while $50,000 will not provide a trous
seau especially noite-wortlhy for its ele
gatne-. When hand-embrtoidered night
dresses are madtle for a thousand dol
lars apiece, the old allowance of a huln
dred dollars for the bride's lingerie,
iwhich was extravagant a generation
ago, sreels almonlst ridliculous to the
fashionable belle of today.
The difference between the cost of
women's clothing and that of men has
afforded the joke writers material for
many hits. and yet it is almost unbe
lievable. A well-known couple not
yet included in the multi-millionaire
class, returned from Europe last year
with their season's outfit of clothes.
The man, who Is considered one of the
best dressed men of the country, paid
duty upon $1840 worth at new cklthing.
Hisb wife had $10,000 worth~ the phi.t
part of which was in gowns, althougt
her hats alone cost more than her hue,
hand's entire outfit. Yet gauged b3
the expenditures of her associates, this
f woman did not spend any more that
her sense of obligation to her positigr
in society demanded.
'The greatest increase in the cost ol
living in many families is the larges
sum required for clothing. A woman
l who used to dress so well upon an al
lowance of $400 a year that her gowns
attracted favorable comment, now
spends ten times that sum, and is
dressing plainly in comparison with
her associates.
The first appearance of spangled
clothes upon the New York stage,
worn by Amazons, attracted attention
1 for their extravagant brilliancy. Now
thousands of American matrons wear
spangled gowns of even greater ex
travagance, which attract attention
because they are no longer unusual.
Much of the extravagance in the
clothes of fashionable women might be
condoned because of the money which
it keeps in circulation, were it not for
the hardships it imposes upon the
women of smaller means, especiall:,
thb working woman. There is no class
distinction in clothing in America.
Every one wears as nearly as possible
the styles of the social leaders, and
the more elaborate their costumes the
greater the strain upon those who de
sire to emulate them. There is no
,peasant class among Americans who
clothe themselves comfortably after
the same styles as their ancestors, in
many instances wearing clothing be
queathed to them. This is often a
hardship which the women resent, but
it is forced upon them by modern so
cial conditions.
The story is told of the wife of a
struggling Methodist preacher who was
rebuked by the presiding elder be
cause she did not give more personal
attention to tlhe education of her chil
dren instead of sending them to public
school and kindergarten at an early
age. She was reminded of the exam
pie of the famous Susannah Wesley
'who had personally instructed each of
her numerous offspring. "That is quite
true," rejo'ned the modern woman.
"But we are also told that Susannah
WVesley wore for nmany years, without
alteration, the cloak which was 'be
queathed to her by her grandmother.
If I were to atppear in my husband's
church wearing my grandmother's
cloak, unless I had carefully altered it
to suit modern ,ashion, I would
speedily be reminded that I was not
keeping up the dignity of my hus
band's ,poslilnl by presenting a proper
appearance. I cannot spend my time
teaching mly own children when I am
compelled to sewl continually in order
that they, as well as myself, present as
good an appearance as the families in
our church whol have larger means."
The average wolnan experiences no
keener distress than the knowledge
that her clothes are below the stand
ards of her associates, although many
women are strong-minded enough to
try to ignore it. At a recent scientific
gathering held in Washington, attended
by the leading scientists of the coun
try and their wives, a well-known so
ciety woman remarked: "There is
nothing more pathetic to me than the
evening gown of most of these women.
You can see by their faces that they
are cultured, refined women who
would naturally like better things, yet
some of them have been sacrificing
everything to the scientific achieve
ments of their husbands. 'Many of
these dresses formed a part of bridal
trousseau, and have 'been carefully
,preserved ever since. The painstaking
effort put forth in a vain endeavor to
bring them up to a prevailing style
mnakes my heart ache. Only a woman
can understand the aching hearts un
derneath some of these partially re
juvenated dresses, and it seems wrong,
somehow, that such things have to he."
While undoubtedly the women in the
professional classes do suffer from the
present extravagant standards of
dress, the greatest martyrs are the
poor 'working girls who have not the
resoulrces of the other women to help
them. lEach new fad which is adopted
by the society woman is copied in
cheaper materials for her poorer sis
ter. The cheaper the material, the
greater tax its Ipurchase may be upon
the poor woman who acquires for her
hard-earned money an article from
which she will have little service and
which she will soon discard for some
thing calling for an equal tax upon
her slender resoullrces. The same
mUneyn invested in goad durable gar
ments would yield so much greater
physical comfort if they only had the
fashionahle appearanlce necessary to
her ha nDilnns,
Great industries are built upon the
imitations of elegancics which the per
verted taste of Imany American women
now seems to demand. Brocaded vel
vets, which might cost hundreds of
dollars from the silk looms of Europe,
are being produced in the New Eng
land cotton mills for the smallest frac
tion of the cost of the originals. All
kinds of jewels are now manufac
tured in cheap glass, while the manu
facture of imitation laces has grown
into an industry representing millions
of dollars annually in this country.
These imitations are never durable.
Their frequent renewal has been the
undoing of many working girls who
will put all they can earn or obtain
credit for into open-work lingerie at 59
cents a set, willow plumes at $1.98,
imitation silk dresses at $4.49, and yet
always be in need of the warm, com
fortable clothing their health demands.
Thinking women all over the coun
try are agreeing that better dress
standards for womlmen must be secured,
and just how this shall be brought
about is not yet alpparent. To the
minds of many people it is purely a
matter of education. It is related of
Miss Martha Berry, \\ho has devoted
her life to the education of the neg
lected mountain girls in the south, that
she ,was bitterly discouraged over
what she feared would be the effect
of a visit of some fashionable dressel
woymen to her school. She had en
deavored to give her girls high ideals
of the neatness and suitability of dress
and the beauty and simplicity of well
chosen clothing. The visitors were at
tired in hobble skirts, low-necked
waists of semi-transparent material
and monstrous hats accentuated in
some instances by tightly tied veils.
Yet their clothing was 'costly and in
keeping with the current fashion. To
her great :elief one of the older girls
said to her after the visit, "Oh, Miss
Berry, we girls thought that it was too
bad that those ladies who w.ere here
this morning did pot i3ave you to
teach them how to dress. It seemed
too bad that they should wear such
funny looking clothes, and they must
have been uncomfortable, too."
It is believed that the increasing
patriotism among women will also'
tend to improve their Jddgment in
these matters. The extremes of fash
ion which so many American womenl
of good social ,position have brought
over from Paris would never be worn
by a European woman in good stand.
ing. American women go to Paris and
see beautiful women in carriages and
upon the stleet wearing new and ex
treme garments. They do not know
that these bieautiful women are of the
demi-mondeĆ½ and that the ultra Pa
risian modiste design gowns for the
American land the demi-mondaine,
classing themh together. He would not
think of of lering them to his owni
country-womnen. American women are
gradually bbcoming aware of this, and,
the idea off Wearing clothes produced
in this country appeals to them as a
patriotic duty, and most of these
American models are both beautiful
and sensible. The modern American
woman is !demanding simpler, plainer
clothing which will not require so great
an outlay of her own time in planning,
or involve so great a strain upon the
less fortunate woman who pays her
the highest compliment-that of imi
Within the past decade the demand
for American fashions for American
women has increased so enormously
that the business of manufacturing
American ,patterns now represent mil
lions of dollars of investment. The
simplicity, suitability and beauty of
these have been developed so cleverly
that they are now popular in every,
civilized country. Patterns for origi
nal American styles of garments are
now supplied with directions for their
use printed in every European lan
guage. Fashions designed especially
for American women are now in
greater demand throughout the world
than those of any other one nation,
not even excepting the French.
'Few persons will dispute that the I
modern fashions present many ad
vantages over those of a decade ago.
'The day of tight lacing is over. The
best present models have a waist
measurement of from 24 to 30 inches
instead of from 18 to 22, as was once
the case. No well dressed woman nowt
performs gratuitously the task of
street sweeping, although only a few
years ago trained dresses were seen'
upon the street in great numbers. The
hustla. like the hoop skirt, has long
been relegated to oblivion, and except
for the extremely narrow skirt, which
many women have never been guilty t
of wearing, the present costume upon
the street, with no extra fullness to
make it unnecessarily heavy and short
enough to clear the ground comfort
ably, seems almost to have reached
the maximum of comfort and utility.
To the average woman the sheath
skirt, the transparent waist and simi
lar novelties are merely passing ec
centricities which will not have any o
lasting favor, although even their a
short duration is depreciated in many
circles. h
It is especially unfortunate that o
these extremes in styles. many of them 7
originating in garments designed for c
European women of loose morals, u
should be worn by the American
woman who can least afford them. s
The clothes which present least pro
tection from the cold and invite the n
advances of sensual men are most fre
luently worn by young girls who can b
less easily afford the risk of illness s
from colds or are less able to repel in- l
sult rather than by the women of "
means whose social position protects 5
them from unwelcome advances.

Mullan, April 3.-(Special.)-Work
at the National mine near Mullan
during the past two months has de
veloped a mammoth body of copper
sulphides which outclasses anything
yet found in the Mullan district in
copper ores. The Snowstorm on the
same belt, has a large body of the
same character of ore, but the Na
tional ore body has every appearance
of being more extensive than the
Snowstorm. So far as developed, the
ore body shows 350 feet in length and
70 feet wide of solid sulphide milling
ore. The elnd of the shoot has not
been reached in either the east or
west end. So far all the development
work has been to the east, and the
ore still continues there as strong as
any place in the shoot. Two cross
cuts and several diamond drill holes
have ,been 'driven across the bed, all
of which show a width of from 70 to
75 feet. The ore is very uniform in
character, and shows good silver val
ue.i in connection with the copper.
The occtWrence is a bedded vein in
stbad of the usual fissure character.
istic of the Coeur d'Alene lead-silver
mines. The ore bearing strata is a
thick bed of the Revett quartzites,
bounded on either side by dense talc
seams which have held the copper so
lutions. Beds of Revett of similar
structure bound the vein on both
sides, but contain very slight mineral
values. The ore hearing beds have
the same strong northeast and south
west trend characteristic of the Re
\ett bedding, with a strong dip t,o the
south and west. The opening of this
giant ore body in the National prac
tically proves the great extent .of the
copper deposits in the Mullan district,
and assures the camp.n of a long life
and increased output. The copper
belt is extensive, but the surface
cri.ppings are very poor, when com
pared with the great bodies of ore
opened at depth. The croppings on
the National give no indication of the
ore bodies underneath. The vein
which the National company was en
deavoring to open was *a lead-silver
fissure vein on the surface, but this
sheet of ore has not been opened in
the lower workings. The great body
of copper ore found apparently has no
connection with the surface, and not
a pound of the copper bearing levett
was found in the National upper
xorkings. The distance between the
National and Snowstorml is over one
mile, and between these two the
Snowshoe company has opened an
ore body of similar character in the
lte\'vtt beds, which appears to be ex -
tensive in width and length, like the
others. Leaving the National the
mineral bearing beds strike northwest
through the ('Copper King property,
but have not yet been opened farther
west than the National fdr the reason
that they strike further north than the
Copper King tunnel extends. The Cop
per King company will probably make
arrangements to open these .beds
either by diamond drilling or extend
ing the main crosscut. The Missoula
and Independent companies are in the
same or companion beds of the min
eralized. Revett and both companies
have excellent showing of large bod
ies of ore opened in their surface
workings. Thie Nati'onal company '.
iow making i'relarati, s for a lmillinll
plant to be trected !his y ar. The
showing of oro I locked out In the
mine l fully justifies this move. The
plant will be of the same character
as the Snowstorm, but efforts will be
made to install several new improve
ments over the Snowstorm plant. It
will be located at some point on
Deadman gultch not yet decided on
just east of Mullan.
