This sentence was pronounced upon him Saturday by mediately to the county bastile to begin bis term. Dasha was arrested eervina Judge H. H. Ewing and he was taken im edit ' ng in his nome at Belt, where the still was also found. When asked by the court to say wheth er there was any reason why sentence should not be pronounced, Dasha stated that he was innocent. In proof of this he declared that he had arrived at Belt from Spokane only three days prior to his arrest and that it would have been impossible, within that period, to have rigged a still and fermented the several barrels of material found in bis house. Absent, But Sentenced. Dasha's sentence was duplicated in the case of Tony Selo, arrested last August for operating a still.

When located, he will serve four months in the county jail and pay a fine of $200, bwt his $1,000 bail will be im mediately forfeited by order of the court.

Bailiff Frank l>onoher called the defendant's name in the court room and hall and when he failed to respond Judge Leslie pronounc ed the penalty after the same formal fashion when the defendant is present. The trial was conducted with the defend ant absent that legal requirements in connection with the forfeiture of his bail might be met.

To learn whether a feasible route can be found for the proposed cutoff on the Great Falls-Helena road between Hardy and Craig. County Surveyor II. G. Dav of Cascade county and Surveyor George Poor of Lewis and Clark county will Monday, with a representative of the state highway commission, go oyer the ground for the purpose of making preliminary estimates and to discover whether the nature of the Missouri river canyon at this point will permit of a survey being run along lines contem plated. At places between Hardy and Craig the walls of the canyon are composed entirely of rock, the fact of which is so precipitate that special means may have to be employed in making a survey. The proposed cutoff is 1.3 miles in length, would shorten the road between this city and the capital by 20 miles and would eliminate the Sullivan hill and other difficult stretches in the route now followed. The movement looking to construction of the cutoff was initiated last January by the board of commissioners of Lewis An external application tor the prevention and relief of Colds.

Five miles of the work would be in Lewis and Clark county and the remainder in Cascade but under a law now operative the ex pense would be equally divided between the two counties. It is believed that the important position occupied by the cut off in the stated road building program would cause the government to give as sistance from the federal nid fund. Statu aid would also be posible if the $15,000, 000 road bond issue to be voted upon next November is approved by the people.
