0T IS MAYOR YEGEN
The City Election Held Yee terday Was an Excit ing One. • EVANS BEAT BAILEY While Frank Mann Beat a Field ' of Fyi -Aldermanic Fight Was Not Lively. 7 . - V/The city election of Billings was held yesterday and the municipal contest was an exciting one. A good vote was polled, it only falling thirty-nine short of the total registration. Considerable interest was manifested and it seemed to be no man's race. C. Yegen seemed to be the general favorite for mayor, H. S. Evans for city treasurer and J. D. Matheson for police magistrate. But little betting was done, although the friends of Mr. Yegen and Mr. Smith, as well as those of Mr. Bailey and Mr. Evans were hard at work for their re spective candidates. In the Fourth ward was shown the strength of Mr. Yegen, where he polled 80* votes out of 136. Mr. Smith carried his own ward, the First, while Dr. linehart re ceived the largest vote in the Second. The vote for police magistrate was divided between six candidates as fol lows: A. Fraser, H. A. Frith, F. L. Mann, J.' D. Matheson, James Kelly and B. Schneider. Each candidate had his friends and all were at work. Mr. Mann developed great strength in the First and Fourth wards, while Mr. Matheson carried the Second, his home ward. Mr. Schneider also carried his home ward. The contest for aldermanic honors was not strong, Geo. F. Bennighoff and U. E. Frizelle being the only candi dates in the First and Third wards, re spectively. In the Second ward, H. F. Clement carried off the honors, while in the Fourth, where two were to be elect ed, E. W. Szitnick and F. R. St. John came out victorious. The vote by wards was as follows: First Ward.-Mayor-Rinehart, 39;" Smith, 51; Yegen, 17; Smith's plur ality, 12.

Easter Sunday, the festival of the resurrection of the Savior, was fittingly observed in the different places of wor shifin Billings, there being beautiful exercises in commemoration of one of the most important events in Biblical history. T:he great day in Cbristendom that marks the end of Lent has some times been called the "Sunday of Joy" (Dominica Gaudii). The weather man was not on his good behavior and the promised fine array of the latest style of bonnets and gowns on the part of the fair sex and the latest gentlemen's attire materia lizea only in a. few oases. A snow set in Saturday evening and continued un til Sunday morning and this caused the people to shiver as they 'thought of their new and light apparel. An interesting Easter programme -was rendered in the Methodist Episco pal church Sunday evening by the Sun d.y school scholars. All taking part di .their best to make the exercises a smaoeas and all creditably rendered their parts. The singing by the junior gitrl was well done, as well as two duets by the smaller scholars. The rec it tics and dialoqrues by the different Sabruashowed careful preparation and t.S Sutit programme was well received s ioyed by the large congregation SA pecal effort will be made b to have an excellent l.VIrefm's day ia June. - p r* sehool of the Octgrega -igiup a vrery pretty Easter. atpr*mae Sunday evening. The chi 'Was beautifully decorated with palhis and other potted plants, conspicuous among them being a hand some Eester lily which perfumed the entire room. The programme consisted of appropriate music, recitations and dialogues by the classes, all being nicely given. * * At St. Luke's church the services were of a special character and were participated in by large congregations. Early communion was celebrated at 8 a. m. The services at 11 a. m. consist ed of morning prayer and communion. The floral decorations were more than usually elaborate, and the singing by the vested choir was excellent. The offertory solo by Mrs. Tompkins, "I Know That My Redeemer Liveth," was beautifully rendered. The sermon by the rector, Rev. A. Carswell, was on the subject of the Resurrection, and was an able discourse. The evening service was also very fine, and was largely at tended. The offertory was for the for eign missions, and with the Lenten offerings from the Sunday school amounted to over $80. The choir was assisted by an orchestra seated in the vestry. Miss Harriet Stebbins presided at the organ, the music being under the direction of Mrs. Tompkins. The following programme was presented at the morning service: Processional-"-' Jesus Christ is Risen Today"...........Lyra Davidica Te Deum in D.............. Sullivan Benedictus ...................Anon Hymn-"Come Ye Faithful, Raise the Strain"....... A. S. Sullivan Kyrie..................Sir G. Elvey Gloria Tibi ..................Gounod Hymn--"Angels Roll the Rock Away" .............C. F. Roper Offertory-"I Know that My Re deemer Liveth (Messiah)..Handel Mrs. Tompkins. The Gloria in Excelsis......Old Chant Recessional-"Alleluia, the Battle's O'er" ................ P6lestuna * * * Easter Sunday was also observed at the Catholic church with low mass at 7:30 a. m., high mass at 10:80 a. m. and vespers at 7:30 p. m. The church was beautifully decorated and the sing ing was a special feature of the high mass service, being conducted by Mrs. Kellogg of Butte. Ira L. Whitney sang a pretty solo. Rev. Father Van Clarenbeck delivered a splendid dis course, his congregations throughout the day being large and attentive, and taken altogether Easter Sunday is a day long to be remembered by that de nomination. A SPLENDID PRODUCTION. John Griffith Renders "The Avenger" Be fore an Appreciative Audience. It is a refreshing change from the monotonous absurdities of theatrical extravaganzas when one is permitted to hear real drama well rendered. John Griffith and his well selected company gave an excellent performance of "The Avenger" at the opera house Saturday evening. The play is well suited to Mr. Griffith's varied - powers, as the hunchback gives play to that sinuous and fascinating cussedness that has so greatly distinguished this actor's "Faust," while the manly gallantry and tender affection of the real "De Legaardere" were wholesome and dramatic. It is a pleasant privilege to listen to one who makes no attempt to read a false emphasis into his lines by catchy mannerisms or distracting inter pretations. The all-round work of the company sustained the dignity of the theme, ex cept in one or two minor instances, where the temptation to give the French attendant a Hibernian -accent was too strong to be resisted: The real lady-always that, in child ish mood or womanly grace, in tender love or bitter sorrow--was Miss Pur nell's "Blanche." There was no affec tation; she was simply it. There was the usual good audience that greets this entertaining company, and all were well satisfied with the evening's performance. Many, how ever, who have enjoyed AIr. Griffith's "Faust" regretted that circumstances prevented the rendering of that old time favorite. THE SCHOOL ELECTION Passed Off Quietly in HBillings Saturday. A Contest. The annual school election passed off quietly Saturday afternoon, when com pared with former times. I. D. O'Don nell was the only candidate nominated, but at a late hour A. P. Hart sprang out and made a good race. The total vote was only 59, being as follows: O'Donnell...................... 31 H art. ................. ......:. 27 Paul McCormick ................. 1 The proposition to levy ii special tax of 3 mills to earry on the school work carried by a vote of 40 for and 4 against. BREWERY FOR CARBON COUNTY. The Hozeman Company Contemplates Building One at Carbonado. W. H. Schreiber, representative of the Bozeman Brewing company in Billings, states that Julius Lehrkind, owner of the Bozeman brewery, con templates establishing a branch brew ery in Carbon county, and though the exact location has not been selected, it will probably be at Carbonado. The plant will cost about $25,000. "This branching out is made nqces sary," says Mr. Sohrieber, "by the es tablishment in this city of a branch of the Centennial brewery of Butte."

FOR MURDER OF M'RAE And Allen -James Calder Turned State's Evidence and Will Get a Penitentiary Sentence. James Eli Fisher, who was charged with being an accomplice with William Calder in the murder of. Farquahr Mo Rae and John Allen, will also pay the death penalty on the gallows, the jury in the district court of Fergus county bringing in a verdict of guilty of mur der in the first degree on Friday night. Fisher's case commenced last Monday in Lewistown and was concluded Wednesday night. The jurors faired to agree upon a verdict and returning to the court room notified the judge to that effect. Thereupon the judge sent them back, they remaining in the jury room unitl Friday night, when the ver dict was reached. There is still one other to try, James T. Calder, a brother of William Calder. As he turned state's evidence it is pre sumed he will get off with a mild peni tentiary sentence. His evidence fur nished the connecting link that com pleted the evidence from the time Mc Rae was last seen alive until a few charred bones were discovered. He made a good witness for the state. His name was not endorsed on the informa tion until the trial of William had com menced. When this was done it is said that William turned deathly pale as though aware that his remaining hope of the state failing to make out a case was shattered. The mother and step-father .of the Calder boys, for William is only 27 and his brother about 19,live in the Mussel shell country. Fisher, who is about 29, is known here, having been a piano player about the saloons. He has not yet received his sentence. Speaking of the Calder murder trial, the Fergus County Argus has the fol lowing: It is not frequent in the annals of crime that a witness takes the stand and deliberately swears his brother's life away as James Calder has done. The fact that he is a mere boy who has never been out of his mother's sight until within the past six months and that he was terrorized by his brother, and in constant fear of losing his life, according to his testimony, may be urged in extenuation. Yet there is something abhorrent in the thought that one should turn against his brother in order to save himself from the gal lows. While James Calder may not be as guilty as the other two it is probable that he did not fully comprehend the gravity of the situation until placed be hind iron bars. If be did not want to participate in a horrible crime it would seem that he could have readily escaped before the deed was committed. In any event the fact that he turned against his. brother will gain him but little sympathy from the public, even though by se doing he furthered the ends of justice. D)ITRICT COURT IN SESSION. Judge Loud Convened Court for This County Today. Judge C. H. Loud came up from Miles City this morning and at 10 o'clock convened district court for Yel lowstone county. This session of court promises to be an extended one and several interesting as well as very im portant cases are to come up. There are seven cases on the criminal docket, fifty-two on the probate and thirty-one civil cases. Those comprising the crim inal are: State vs. Frank Savaresy, assault in the first degree. State vs. W. C. Brooks; the state will consider the motion of the defend ant for a new trial. Refusal of mo tion will form a basis of appeal to the supreme court for new trial. State vs. Frank Quinn, disturbing the peace. Appeal from Justice Simp son's court at Columbus. State vs. August Schroeder, assault in the first degree. State vs. August Schroeder, grand larceny. State vs. H. Newman, forgery. State vs. Anthony Cosgriff, assault in the second degree. Judge Loud has surely had some hard court sessions so far this year, three murder trials in three counties having already been tried before him. The first was the W. C. Brooks case, in which Brooks was found guilty; the second, Jos. C. Hurst of Glendive for the murder of Sheriff Cavanaugh, re sulting in a conviction, and last that of Nelson for the murder of Bell near Miles City, which was held last week, Nelson being convicted of man slaughter. WILL VISIT BILLINGS. Founder of Florence" Crittenton Homes Will Be Here Next Month. Mr. Charles Crittenton, funder of the Florence Crittenton Mission, will be in Billings some time next month to con duct a ten days' meeting. A great many of our people no doubt are ac quainted with the origin of this work. A few years ago Mr. Crittenton's little child Florence lay sick. Realizing that she must soon go to rest, she asked her father to promise her that. he would do more for Jesns. What could he do but promise l1 lASe rlOFDuoe paeou away$ and immediately Mi; Urittenton began to fulfill his promise to the child and to his God. He is a wealthy wholesale druggist of New York City. A mission was started on Bleeker street, support ed entirely by Mr. Crittenton. The mission is intended for the rescue of fallen women. Since that time like missions have been planted in all large cities of America, and some on the east ern continent. While he has done wonders through these missions, he was not content with that. A private car was built and two of the best siup ers he could find were hired, the entire expense being paid out of his own purse. He started over the country preaching, the car being their home. The railroads haul his car free of charge. He is now on the Northern Pacific in Washington, going east, and will reach Billings May 28. He will find a royal welcome. The Protestant churches will unite for work before Mr. Crittenton's arrival here. A large choir, chosen from among the churches, will. soon begin practice. The court house will probably be secured in which to hold the meetings. A GOOD SHOW COMING. HI Henry's Minstrels Will Re Here Next Friday.
