IS AT HOME
RETURNS TO BILLINGS FROM
/ EUROPEAN TRIP.
ENJOYED HIS VACATION
Was Accompanied by Father Day
of Helena - Principal
Rev. Father Francis Van Claren
beck, priest of St. Joachim's Catholic
church, returned to Billings Wednesday
morning, after a visit to Europe cover
ing a period of nearly seven months.
Father Van, as he is generally known,
is looking in better health than he has
for years, there being no dQubt but
that the trip proved a very beneficial
one to him. When he left here last
spring on his vacation he was much
in need of rest, his work having worn
greatly upon him. He has fleshed up
considerable, which shows that he was
well treated while abroad. Father
Van Clarenbeck was accompanied
home by Rev. Father Victor Day, with
whom he traveled over Europe.
The Gazette reporter called upon
Father Van at the priest's home yes
terday afternoon and was warmly
greeted by the reverend gentleman,
who is glad to be once again among
his church people and many friends.
It is hardly necessary to say that
Father Van enjoyed his vacation and
especially the trip through Europe,
for his every reference to them was
made with extreme pleasure.
Father Van Clarenbeck set foot on
European soil at Rotterdam, Holland,
where he was met by two of his broth
ers. Accompnaied by them he 'im
mediately proceeded to the southern
part of the kingdom, where his mother
resides, whom he had not seen for al
most eight years. When he walked
into her presence she did not recognize
him. Although his mother is nearly
65 years of age she is enjoying splen
did health. After a visit of several
weeks with his mother and at several
points near her home, he went to
Antwerp, Belgium, where he was met
by Father Day of Helena, the two hav
ing previously arranged to meet there
and "do" the different paris of
Europe. Brussels was the next place
visited. They then proceeded to
Lucerne, Switzerland, the scenery' of
which republic the reverend gentle
man thinks excels that of any country.
Milan, Italy, was the next point of
interest at which they stopped and
from there they went to Rome. Six
days were spent in this most interest
ing of all cities, and although they
were piloted about by two competent
guides, not one-fourth of the interest
ing points were visited. Although
the two priests did not secure a pri
vate audience with Pope Leo XIII
they were privileged to see him in a
public audience in St. Peter's church
which was attended by about 50,000
people. These public audiences are
held twice each year, and In order to
gain admittance it is necessary to se
cure a ticket granting the permission.
Although the priests were loath to
leave Rome they were compelled to
hurry on as they wished to visit
Oberammergau, in Upper Bavaria,
where the celebrated Passion Play was
in progress. Oberammergau is a small
village of possibly 1,500 people, and
of this number nearly 700 take part in
The Passion Play, or dramatic rep
resentation of the sufferings of Christ,
is not a survival of a mediaeval myst
ery or miracle-play, but took it rise
from a vow made by the inhabitants of
Oberammergau in 1683, with the hope
of staying a plague then raging. The
original text and arrangements were
probably made by the monks of Ettal,
a monastery a little higher up the val
ley, but they were carefully re
modelled by the parish priest at the
beginning of the nineteenth century,
when the Oberammergau play obtained
exemption from the general suppres
sion of such performances by the Ba
varian government. The music was
composed by Rochus Dedler, school
master of the parish in 1814. The
performances begin on Sunday and
each lasts about nine hours, beginning
at 8 o'clock a. m., with an hour's in
termission at noon. They take place
in a large open-air theatre holding
about 5,000 or 6,000 persons. Each
scene from the history of Christ is
prefaced by a tableau of typical im
port from the Old Testament. The
proceeds of the performances are de
voted to the good of the community,
after defrayal of the costs and pay
ment of a small remuneration to the
actors. The villagers regard the Pas
sion Play as a solemn act of religions
worship, and the performances are
characterized by the greatest rev
erence. The principal parts arp usual
ly hereditary in certain faimhlies, and
are assigned, with regard to moral
character as well as dramatic ability.
It is considered a disgrace not to be
allowed to take part in the play, and
the part of Christ is looked upon as
one of the greatest of earthly honors.
In the years intervening between the
representation, as it is only given
every ten years, the villagers are care
fully drilled in dramatic performances
by their pastor, and most witnesses
agree in rating very highly the results
produced by the'o combined religious
fervour land artistic instinct of these
Speaking of the play Father Van
Clarenbeck says that no one who has
never seen it has the least conception
of its grandeur, and those who have
read the story of Christ's crucifixion
can but little realize it until they
have also seen the reproduction by the
people of Oberammergan. The impres
sion it makes upon one's mind is never
to be forgotten. After leaving
Oberammergau, Fathers Van Clarm
beck and Day went to Paris to see the
exposition. After sometime spent
there they again visited the Nether
lands, sailing from Antwerp on Decem
ber 22, arriving in New York January
5. Several days were spent in New
York City and other places and also
en route to Billings.
Father Van says that he saw no
city between the Pacific and Atlantic
coasts that rival Billings in beauty
and cleanliness. The reverend gentle
man may go to Helena this week to
straighten out some matters relative
to his baggage, that of his and Father
Day's having become mixed, the
latter's being left here, while the
former's was taken on to Helena.
Knowing that his church people and
his many friends as well will be inter
ested in hearing of his travels abroad,
Father Van Clarenbeck desires The
Gazette to state that, beginning with
Sunday evening, February 3, he will
devote the evening service for a few
Sundays in telling of the many inter
esting sights and scenes which came
under his observation.

OF INTEREST TO LAWYERS.
New Laws Proposed-May Attach County
The provision that the plaintiff may
unite several causes of action legal or
equitable in the same complaint is a
feature of the bill introduced by the
judiciary committee in the senate
Saturday. The conditions upon which
such privilege may be given the plain
tiff are when the cases arise out of
contracts, express or implied; claims
to recover specific real property, with
or without damages, or for waste com
mitted, rents and profits, or for an in
junction to prevent such waste or in
jury; claims against a trustee by vir
tue of a contract or law; injuries to
character, injury to persons or prop
Causes of the act united must ap
pear on the face of the complaint to
belong to only one of these classes
and must affect all of the parties to
the action and not require different
places for trial and must be separately
stated and numbered. A provision is
made that a contract express or im
plied and injuries to property may be
entitled in the same complaint, and
any relief to which the plaintiff may
be entitled may be had by uniting
In an action for malicious arrest
and prosecution it may be united with
an action for either injury to charac
ter or person.
This bill is a proposed amendment
to section 672, chapter, title 6 part
of the code of civil procedure.
Under the existing laws applying to
rules of Procedure in criminal and
civil cases instructions are given to
the jury by the court before the argu
ments are made by the lawyers in the
case. Two bills introduced in the
senate by Senator H. L. Myers provide
amendments to the sections of the
civil and penal codes bearing upon
that subject. The amendments are to
reverse the provisions of the law
now in force and let the lawyers
argue their cases after the instruc
tions to the jury have been passed
upon and settled and the court has
charged the jury.
Senator H. L. Myers has a bill in
form of preparation providing county
treasurers to publish semi-annually
in a newspaper a statement of all li
cense money collected by the counties.
Prior to 1895 such a law was in effect
and this bill is for the purpose of re
instating the old law. The senator
will also introduce a bill requiring
county treasurers to publish an ac
count of all personal taxes collected.
The present law requires only the offi
cial publication of taxes on real estate.
Money in the hands of the state,
counties or municipalities are not sub
ject to attachment under the law now
in force in the state and a bill to be
introduced by Senator W. F. Meyer of
Carbon county provides that the at
tachment of such money may be had.
"This provision was omitted," said
Senator Meyer, "as a great many nec
essary clauses in other bills have been
overlooked- in the process of former
legislation. I do not think there will
be any opposition to the amendmenlt."
The amendment proposed is to re
peal section 95 of the code of civil pro
cedure that relates to attachments.
IT WAS A "BLIND PIG."
City Jail Leaked-Prisoners Become More
Drunk While Therein.
The city jail has been undergoing
repairs the past couple of davs. Of
late the police office have been notio
ing that something was radically
wrong about the bastile, for drunken
men after being placed therein and
kept for a day to sober up were even
more drunk the day after than when
arrested. An investigation resulted
in finding that Someone had been run
ning a "blind pig," as it were. A
piece of lead pipe had been placed in
the west window of the jail and into
this had been poured the corn-juice
that was keeping the prisoners from
becoming thirsty, the inmates having
caught the liquor with a cup as it
came through. Just who has been be
hind this scheme the rolice will not
say, but they have fixed the leak so no
more trouble will occur.
TO BE MADE A PROFESSION.
Attempt to Legalize Gambling-Billings
Merchants Stand Divided.
If a bill that Senator W. E. Tierney
will introduce becomes a law the
"profession of gambling" will be
created in Montana. It is an act to
legalize gambling in the state and pro
poses to license not only the keepers of
gaming institutions, but the players as
well. The bill does not contemplate a
prohibitory license, but those who fa
vor it say it is the best medicine they
know of to prevent the ipcrease of
gambling among the members of the
rising generation. It aims to cure by
its feature of publicity given to all
persons who gamble, subjects them to
arrest and the penalty of a fine or im
prisonment if they do not comply
with the law, and is a source of reve
nue to the state.
The names of all licensed gamblers
shall be kept in a register by the
treasurer of each county, as well as
the dates of issuance, and expiration
of licenses and the occupation of the
persons who obtain them. These
licenses are good only in the counties
in which they are issued. Any person
who plays without such license is
deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, the
penalty for which for the first offense
is not less than $15 nor more than
$25, or not less than $25 nor more
than $100 for each subsequent offense.
Keepers of games who do not obtain
satisfactory evidence that their pat
rons are legalizen gamblers are sub
ject to a fine of not less than $5u nor
more than $200 for each subsequent
Any person who plays faro, monte,
roulette, lansquenette, rouge et noir,
tan, fan can, stud poker, craps, seven
and-a-half, any banking or percentage
game or any game of chance played
with cards, dice or any device what
ever, is a gambler under the provi
sions of the bill. If any trick or de
vice is used for the purpose of cheat
ing at games the person committing
the act is guilty of larceny and subject
to the penalties of law provided for
such cases. One section gives the coun
ty attorney, sheriff, constable or police
officer the right to break into any
gambling resort suspected of viola
tions of the law, if the keepers refuse
Special professional licenses good in
any county in the state, may be issued
for $10 a quarter. The bill prohibits
the issuance of licenses to persons
under 20 years of age. In case of the
non-payment of fine in any case the
convicted persons may be imprisoned
in the county jail until the fine is paid
at the rate of $2 a day.
Many of the merchants of Billings
favor licensing gambling, but they
think the license should be made large
enough so that only a few persons and
places would be able to make a busi
ness of it. They feel that people will
gamble and since such is the case the
county should derive a revenue from
it. Some of the merchants, however,
believe that the law cannot be made
too severe regarding the prohibition
of gambling and think slot machines
should be included in the list.
No action has been taken by the
ministers or church workers of this
city, who are opposed to legalizing
gambling, in regard to Tierney's bill,
but they are not 'to be found idle.
During the next few days a petition
will probably be forwarded to Yellow
stone county representatives asking
them to work against the measure.
They would rest contented should the
present law be allowed to remain in
force, but since the element favoring
the licensing of gambling has stirredc
up the hornets nest they will endeavor
to have the law amended :making it a
misdemeanor for the officers, both
county and city, neglecting to enforce
the law. Representative Stull of thi's
county favors such an amendent and
is one of the bitterest opponents of the
measure which has for its purpose the
legalizing of gambling.

SEARCHING FOR AN HEIRESS.
Fortune Left to New York Girl Who
Eloped and Came West.
A special to the Helena Record from
New York, under date of January 21,
says: Detectives are scouring Mon

who died a few days ago, leaving a
large amount of property to his daugh

Western town, in which she said she
was married to the young man, and
asking her father to send some money.

daughter to return home and all would
