SCHOOL. BOOK CONTRACTS;
Fstact Submitted to he wasvernor and Ath
trom Thursday's Daily Gazette.
Pending a decision of the governor ap
peand attorney gener the disnothing further and
will be done in the matter odf the muchre
talked of overcharges made by the
concerns that haovethe contractsfor
supplying the public schools tpf the
state with bookts. The reccrd is now
in their possession and presumably
they are delving into -it.
A few days ago information cover
ing every ,phase of the proposition
was transmitted to the governoa.and
attorney general by the state super
intendent of public instruction and
from this it is believed those two of
tlcials will be able `tQ for~ an idea
as to what the coip~nies hahve been
dl.ing in the way :ot chag'glg for
books in the various diatricta through
rout the state. The information was
tfurnished- at the instance of the gen
tlemen to whom it has been trans
mitted, as they sometime ago -re
Squested the superintendent to collect
and sulbmit to them all ,the facts and
e evidence bearing' on the subject. This
t he..lid and the result is a bulky docue
Sment over which the governor and at
. torney general are now pouring.
SSuperintendent Welch is quoted'as
g saying that the correspondence sub:
mitted will show violations -of their
contracts by the compaules I·p every
e county of the Btate. He did not ven

is ibeing circulated for the relief of

"As you can see from the provision
of the petition, the pension will be
grauted on certain conditions, so that
Ca$I mity will ,not be able to dispose
of ie money for red liquor. She will
have a guardian just as if she were,
a child, and will be given a portion of
i the. money only at sych times as she
is in actual want and when she guar
antees that she will not spend it over
the bar treating every sheep herder
she . meets.
"Several attempts have been made
by philanthropic persons to get Calam
ity" to 'go into some home whery she
would be provided for and wherb she
would be safe from the snare of the
tempter, but you might as well .try to
make, a pet out of a timber wolf. She
has been foot-loose all her life, and
the quickest way to break her heart
would be to take away her, peculiar
and eccentric ideas of liberty.
"Calamity has not yet recovered 1
fronm the effects of her experie#,e
with philanthropists. About two
years .ago a womah won her heart and
whatever` apology for affections she
has, and induced her to go east with
he- to a. better life, where there was
more civilization and less cactus and
barbed wire. When she got the poor
old woman back there, she opened up
a dim'e quseum and exhibited Calam
ity for .10cents a throw.
"One day the old girl tired of this
form of amusement and bidding the'
museum a summary farewell, arrived
in Billings one day with a ~sad story
and adn rnquenchable thirst."
Many, of Butte's well known citi
zens are signing the petition which is
destined \to put "Calamity Jane high
and dry beyond the pangs of penury.
