ALL PATIENTS DOING WELL Miles City Health Officer Comes to Billings to Investigate Conditions -Goes Home Satisfied. From Monday's Daily. Two more deaths were added to the list of those who have succumbed to the epidemic which started in the community a month ago, mak ing a total of 13. Death of the infant child of Mr. and Mrs. Skirving was reported at 'the south side hospital last night, and Miss May Worthington died at her home in North Twenty ninth street. Mr. and Mrs. Sleirving and three children are at the south side hospital, but only the father and mother of the family are afflicted. The other members of the Worthington family who have been ill and quaran tined at their home are reported as rapidly recovering. No New Cases. There are no new cases reported at the headquarters of the health depart ment today, and it is the concensus of opinion among the physicians of the city who have had charge of those stricken with the epidemic that about the limit in the matter of deaths due to 'the disease has been reached. The patients still under treatment at the hospitals are reported as improving rapidly. A score or more will be dis charged from quarantine within the next few days. Quite an Expense.

This es timate is made on the 'basis that the epidemic has been fully checked and that no more new cases will appear. The expense arising from the care of cases will be equally divided between the. city and county, an arrangement to that end having been made some weeks ago. Confers With. City Health Officers.

When the state board lifted the quarantine Miles City was one of the towns ap pealed to 'in the eastern part of the state by the citizens of Red Lodge asking Ithat Miles City continue to keep its doors closed to Billings. This proposition was declined in a polite note to Red Lodge, on the ground that the state board of health in all proba. 'bility knew what it was doing when it raised the quarantine which three weeks ago had been placed on Billings.

Russia and Austria-Hungary Sending in Largest Delegations. Washington, Feb. 5.-An immense, almost startling, increase in immigra tion is shown ,by the figures for the month of December, which have been compiled by Commissioner of Immigra tion Sargent. The increase in the num ber of immigrants from both Russia and Austria-Hnugary is particularly noticeable, and the immigration from Russia is considered especially signifi cant. In December, 1902, the number of immigrants arriving from Russia was 10,184; in December, 1903, 10,431, and in December, 1904 15,992. Compared with December, 1902, last month showp an increase of 57 per cent. From the whole of Europe the immi gration lasts December was 58,926, an increase of 17,578 over December a year ago. The figures for last December are regarded by immigration officials- as remarkable, as usually immigration during the months of December, Janu ary and February is comparatively. light. Commissioner Sargent poaints out that if the total immigration from all countries, which in December ag gregated 62,762, should be maintained throughout the year, together with the natural increase to be expected in the months of March, April, May and June, the present fiscal year will show the heaviest immigration in the his tory of the country.
