George, who on the fifth day of March.next will turn over the keys of the county treasurer's ofice to his successor, Will Ramsey, republi. can county treasurer-elect, was in Hel. ena last week and ran against the In. dependent legislative reporter. The result was the following praise for the Maverick Hose company of this city from "Colonel" George: "The insurance companies will have no objection to the proposed bill to pro. vide for the creation of a fire fund out of the tax on the excess of receipts over losses and expenses," said County Treasurer W. B. George of Yellowstone county, who was in the city a few days ago. Mr. George is himself an insur ance agent doing a good business at Billings. "There was a case recently," he said, "where the companies have reason to know that they were saved at least $5,000 by the promptness of the fire de partment. It was when the handsome residence of Paul McCormick caught fire. If the department had been ten minutes later there would have been a total loses, entailing the payment of $6,000, instead of $1,000. The fire department of Billings is a volunteer one entirely, but it is one of the best in the state, and the insurance companies can well afford to encourage efliciency in that direction."

Judge Loud set yesterday as-nthe time for the case of the state vs. Frank Sa varesy, assault in the first degree, but the entire day as well as part of today was taken up in securing twelve men to sit on the jury. The regular panel was exhausted and a special,venire number ing over 100 was nearly. used before twelve men could be secured who were aqceptable to'both sides. The jury is as follows: Albert Pribe. J. W. Epper son, Arthur Sansome, J. R. Rosean, C. D. Prather, C. C. Steers, Bert MoMore house, J. W. Appleman, J. M. V. Cochran, A. G. Reddinjg, Geo. Lacy and Walker Browning. The ourt then took a recess for ten minutes, after which the case' commenced. Savaresy is being defended by F. H. Hathhorn of this city and John T. Smith' of Liv ingston, and the rnse bids fair to be a stubbornly fought cne. The Austin North grand larceny case was called for today and the W. C. Brooks murder case "omcrrow. If the court experiences as uauci. trouble, in securing juries for these two trials attd in all probability it will, this sesoiiii will continue for some ,time. Brooks has pleaded not guilty and will be tried for murder in the first degree. A Miss Dougherty of Boulder sued Henry Dahlman of the same place, for $5,000 for breach of promise and the same came up for trial in the' district court of Jefferson county last week. Dahlman is a rich mine owner and ac cording to the young lady had made love to her and sioh. The jury re turned a verdict. of $8,458.91 in her favor.
