It wes interest. lIg for several reasons, fu the first place tlhe timte of meting I N o'rlook and it wes paut Ibat when the sulayt called the meeting to order, fnlding three of the aldermen absment, OlUemlt wan sick and of course was not expect. ed, but the mayor thought the other mnembors outht to be there and he vent. ed his feelings with a remark that a flue should be imposed upon the nmem. bers whbh came lu tartly. Nothing more was said on the maltter until Alderman Witham clame in, about a half-hour late, when thie mayor spoke about it. This precipltat.d a sluall. tixed tilt between the two gentlemen. Mr. Witham said he always got there just ns soonI am he posslbly uoltld and that was the best he could do, Alderman Connelly had been detalun ed and did not reach the council chamn. ber until nearly i uolock, He was rip. pad up the back, hut in a joking way, He and Withnm both' ntod that they, were in favor of flniuM tartly melmbers, the resolution to take a.tclt June 1, 1900-they both go out of office nt that time-otherwaie they would have to resilgn. The first thing on the programme wan the reading of several pages of minlutes of previoam meetings which were approved in the unul manuuner. The reports of all offiners, with Ihe exception of city treaunrer, were nr. cepted, In the latter inmtance tlhe cown. mitten had not time to audit it and asked that it be allowed to go ovur until next meeting, Under the heading of commuulica. tions there was but one itemb The commlitteu having in charge the peti. tlon of J. 0, McCuue, et al., for a side. walk on the went sideof North Twenty seventh atreet from the Cougregatiottal church to Sixth avenue, reported favor. ably on the same. Some little dloeos. lon ensued in which 3fenuigboft eoam. pioned the caure favornbly, while Spear spoke against it, that in, the matter of extending it ns asked for. Spear unid that north of the B. & M. tracks there was low land, the lots were not oceu. pied and probably uevet.would be I tiet 1 there was a good walk on the other Aide . of the streer north from . the B. & M. freight depot. He was ternitul build. ing the sidewalk north of the R & M., tracks on that side on account of the expense, but would vote to extend it to t the wool warehouse, The matter w a settled by Bennighoff uacoeding to antt amendment, changing the petition to read "to Fifth avenue," lultead of I Sixth avetue, but tno billl are to be pire. nented for the work before May 1, 11100, While sidewalk matters were fresh Belt nighofe made a speech iln favor of a sidewalk along the south side of Frlit m Mavenue, north, from Twealty.mvenlth to A Thirtieth street, alnd after soime diuOtim. mlou moved its countruEtinA , It waes seconded by Withalt, Blefore votig ll on the motion Slpear cnd lrisolle ex. u plainud their positions lu the matter by , saylug that they did not thinuk therlle was any demand for the walk alid it would be impoulug ita rbtty heavy tea v on the property owners, A vote on the Motlon reaulted in it bIeis louit, luni.g. aI holl tnd Withalu voting in the mmlirnan. a tlive, while Sper9,, ricall, MIultt IIIh and h,.

O towed to and our boey aRe not, And Helena wants this advantage, too, whlen he owesi BilllgVi a game, the oapital nine having played 'but two games haee, while Billings gave it three in returnu And if Helena can't have such an advantage, she wo.lt plat any more, That to just like the Helena Thu aodviser of Manager Nix in tll, iNga wired him not to play yHelena sit Linton Clothing Co.

Just as The Gazette goes to press a wire has been received from Manager Nix stating that Butte will play the Oawboys in that city tomorrow and t' nday, but that Helena is veay anx ious for him to come there. He wee in at.ruuted to play Butte tomorrow and Helena, at Butte Sunday it he could ar rann,. iti if not, to play Butte again on Sunday,.. THU WOMAN'S OLU.1.

Clement had charge f ,i history of the first quarter of e sixteenth century, a sketch of Martin Luthers life was given by Mrs. Rallsback and Mrs. Paul Mc Cormick read a very good paper on Egyptian history, 'The book "David Harem" was nicely reviewed by Mrs. `.

State toard of Uqualisation Holds to Its Positio on Assessmetnt, The state board of equallataion will not budge from the position it took re. cently in regard to the enforcement of a uniform rate of assessmnent on cattle and sheep,, says the Helena Herald. Despite the protests of stockmen and the notioes front county clerks of their intention to ignore the board's action and of the possibility of legal entauglements the board today annouu ced that it would make no change and wauld stand or fall with its notion in the face of the supreme court decision, The determination of the board to stand pat was not announced until after it had heard from ex.Senator T. 0, Power, the president of the board of sheep commissioners, He appeared beforethe board which met in the gov ernor's office, armed with statistics and figures to show that phe board had as. meased sheep tar high, He pleaded with the board and qunted from the ausaes mnsen of adjoining states. At the con elusion of the hearing the board an. iunced as above stated,
