It was seconded b .'.relle, Before being put to a vote, Attorney W. M. Johnston made it few remarks in favor of the franchise, statinu that he thought the opinion of the city attorney was most reomarkahle and unheard of. He spoke further, to the effect that Mr. Geurge wanted nothing but what was right and expected no exclusive frauclme. Spear moved hat the ordin a re terred back thb hcon i, to con foer with therligin anud city attor Iay and pre L!rI ordinance that will hoe ioceptablFo all parties concerned and in conuformity with the laws, which was seconded by Snitulak.

It was it strong oompany that pro. duced the above.nained comedy at the opera house Wednesday night, the parts being well taken and the acting of an order that could not help but please. The play is full of ludicrous situations, most of them very true to real life, and the audience thoroughly enjoyed the performance. A)1 of Jacob Litt's plays are good and the Billings people who missed "Mistakes Will Happen" last evening should make it a point to hear "In Old Kentucky," another produc. tion of Mr. .itt's which will appear at the opera house soon.

A HITCH IN PRIZE CASE Of the North Atlaltic Squadron, I)Dwey Likely to Comne West with the President. Ivecjial ('orreaonionce o,,f The (Gazette, Wanshington, Oct. 2, 1899.-No man was more deeply interested in the prep. arations for Admiral Dewey's welcome to Washington than President MoKin. lay, who iin addition to being an old personal friend of the adnmirdl has a boundless admiration for the manner in which he performed his difficult duties as commander of the Asiatic squadron from the day be entered Ma nila bay and destroyed the Spanish fleet to the day he left for home. There is also another reason why President Mc Kinley is glad that Admiral Dewey is comning to Washington. He has another position for him to fill-that of ad viser-ino-hief on Philippine affairs which is an important one, although it will carry no official title. The presi dent has not determined upon a Philip. pine policy, further thin to put down the rebellion and to restore law and order on the islands. He has absolute confidence in Admiral Dewey's judpg ment, and there is little doubt that his advice will be a powerful factor in de ciding what the Philippine policy of the president will be after peace has been restored; and the fact that Ad mirl Dewey will be the presidential ad viser will be likely to cause congress, the members of which have the same confidence in him that everybody feels, to endorse whatever Philippine policy may be fnally determined upon. There is a. possibility that Admiral Dewey may join the president's party in the trip to the west, which will fol low the Washington welcome, but as yet is only a possibility, because Ad miral Dewey's wishes have not been as certained, and the president desires him to follow his own wishes in the matter, believing that he has fully earned that right, although he will be delighted, should the admiral decide to go, as will the people of the spotion to be visited by the party. Quite a number of officials wont over to New York to participate in the welcome to D'ewey, Assistant Secretary Allen of the navy department, being a special representative of the secretary of the navy. It was decided some time ago that no member of the cabinet should go, being deemed more fitting that the entire cabinet should stay in Washington with the president to re ceive him. The publication of a story alleging a serious differance of opinion between members of the board of construction as to the speed which the battleship authorized at the last session of con gress should have was not warranted by facts. There is no such difference of opinion. On the contrary, the board is unanimously in favor of obtaining as great speed as possible.. Rear Admiral Melville, who is a memblr of the board, said on the subject: "Each member of the board is striving to se oure for the U. 8. navy ships that will be superior to any yet built. Naturally the preliminary designs, tentatively drawn up by each member of this board, will differ, and the problem be fore the board will be to secure in the designs that which it, as a body, deems to include as many as possible of the advantages of every proposal by any of its members. In the matter of speed, each member of the board seems to desire as high a speed as possible, consisistent with the maintenance of the other offensive and defensive qualities of the ship." The Pope's appointment of Archbish op Chappelle. of New Orleans to be Apostolic delegate to the Philippines, was well received in official circles, as it is believed that the moral effect upon the islands of putting an American at, the head of the Catholic church will be good, just as it has been in Cuba and Porto Rico, to both of which Archbish op Chappelle was appointed Apostolic delegate more than a year ago. The president and Mrs. McKinley held a special reception in honor of th e delegates, who came from all parts of the civilized world, to the seventih council of the Pan Presbyterian Alli ancn, now sitting in Washington. Owing to Chief Justice Fuller and Justice Brewer, of the United States supreme court, being delayed in Paris by the British-Venezuela court of arbi tration, of which they are members, the prize case in which Rear Admiral Sampson and the officers and men of the North Atlantic squadron are inter ested cannot be taken up by the su preme court upon the day set, October It, the importance of the case being such that it is desired -that, it shall be heard and passed upon by a full bench. The case in question grew out of the prizes captured by the North Atlantic squadron during the blockade of Cuba. The amount involved is so large that the claims were by mutual consent of the treasury officials and the naval officers combined in a case to be decid ed by the sunreme onnrt. TO VACCINATE INDIANS. The Agent of the Blaekfret Trying ai pnaoocnplished Thing. Major W. K. Logan, agent for the Blackfeet, is preparing to attempt that which has never been sccomplished general vaccination of all Indians on the reservation. He has secured over 2,000 vaccine points and will endeavor to persuade every Indian on the reser vation to submit to vaccination. Here tofore the Indians, among whom small pox is always very disastrous, have had a great dread of being vaccinated, but in late years, having seen so many of the Indian children at the shobools vao cinated, the older people are not so greatly afraid of the operation. The government has never been able to se cure general vaccination on any reser vation and Major Logan's experiment will be interesting. A TOUR OF INSPECTION.
