Matthews, former city health offi
cer, yesterday created a sensation at
the hearing of the state trade and ef
ficiency commission, which is plrob
ing the high cost of living here.
Dr. Matthews also "spilled the
beans," when hd asserted that one of
the members of themootlh -legislltive
investigating committee, which was
sent here last winter to investigate
high prices then, had told him the
committee was ordered "to lay off"
its investigation of local commission
houses.
The fruit proposition is a big com
bine," he said. "They monopolize
the commodities they handle. The
fruit rots on the ground within a few
miles of Butte while prices are high
in the markets here.
"In the early part of July of last
year, when watermelons were sell
ing at 41 cents and cantaloupes
were selling at 12V2 cents each,
eight tramp cars stood upon the
tracks in Butte while their contents
rotted. This matter I took up with
the department of justice, and the
cars were shipped to other Montana
cities. The cars were brought in by
the Tracy Brokerage company.

C. E. Ruthen1berg Asks Some
Questions During a Cam
paign Speech and Gets
Pinched.
(Special to The Bulletin.)
Cleveland, Ohio, July 26.-C. E.
Ruthenberg, socialist candidate for
mayor of Cleveland and secretary of
the local organization, is under ar
rest here on the charge of violating
the newly enacted Syndicalism act.
He was making his first campaign
speech last night when a squad of
police, led by Chief Smith, broke up
the meeting.
There was no disorder.
Six others were held with Ruth
enberg "for investigation by federal
authorities." One of these has
served 22 months in France as a
volunteer.
The specific charge pressed
against Ruthenberg was the alleged
characterization, in his speech, of
the world war as "mass murder."
Ruthenberg used the words in the
following context:
"If it is possible for the govern
ment to take over the steamships
and railroads, telephone and tele
graph lines and other public utilities
in time of war in order to make mass
murder more efficient. why is it not
possible for these same industries to
be publicly controlled for the com
mon good of all in times of peace?"
Ruthenberg spent the night at the
central police station.
Last night's meeting in Royal hill
marked the opening of the socialist
campaign here, after the director of
safety had definitely announced
that under no circumstances were the
socialists to be permitted to hold
street meetings. Ruthenberg had
spoken for about a half hour, at

To date, 282 persons who signed
petitions protesting against the pro
posed repeal of the primary election
law, have had their names rejected
from the petitions by the county
clerk's office, according to figures
compiled by the committees in
charge of the petitions.
In many of the cases, it is stated,
the signatures to the petitions were
rejected because the signers had not
registered at the time the petitions
containing their signatures were filed
with the county clerk. In other
cases, women who had registered un
der their own given names signed the
petitions, using their husband's
initials, while in other instances, it
was stated, persons who had changed
their addresses since registration had
signed their new addresses on the
petitions.

000 persons who had assembled to
greet him at Hebgen park.
In Butte, where applause is at a
minimum, the reception accorded the
Irish leader was a remarkable dem
onstration of the unanimity with
which the people of Butte and the
state of Montana endorse the cause
of Irish freedom. Two hours before
the program began at the ball park,
the stands began filling with dense
masses of people and when the dis
tinguished guest and his party finally
arrived at the park, the space on the
ball diamond surrounding the speak

white and gold of the Irish republic.
