"Nothing was want ing when we were at Anaconda last summer," said Mr. Bever, "to make our reception and stay enjoyable. The Billings lodge has never surrendered to any one when it comes to hospital ity and we are taking this thing in hand so early that every means of en tertainment may be suggested in time for action. We hope to entertain the visiting brothers in a manner worthy of the occasion and I might add, in a style that will comport with the am bitions of our progressive city. Unless all signs fail, we will certainly show them a good time." The committee consist of the follow ing Elks: W. B. George, W. F. Syl vester, F. B. Connelly, G. F. Burla, Cass Prudhomme, A. F. McNabb; Carl Hunkins, Jack Fraser, C. J. Davis, A. B. Renwick, Henry Miller, Harry L. Wilson, J. C. West, Will Keil and A. Buchanan. C. C. Bever will be chair man ex officio. AS VIEWED BY COMMISSIONERS. Two Members of the Board Interview ed About Pest House Injunction. "I cannot see why Mr. Yegen hould interfere in the construction of a de tention hospital," said commissioner C. M. Jacobs, yesterday when question ed about the injunction case that Christian Yegen has brought to pre venftaction in the matter by the board of county commissioners. "I should hardly think that he would like to as sume the responsibility that would be put upon him in case another epidemic of small-pox should arise here in the near future. "I have not looked into the legal phases of the affair yet, and can say nothing along that line. If this in junction was served because they think that the pest house will be a nuisance if located on block 151, I think they are mistaken. The county board looked all around before select ing a site and I am sure that no better place could be found, at least one that is fairly convenient to the city and which will cause harm to so few per sons or their property rights." Chairman of the board, W. O. Par ker was not seen until this evening, as he was spending the day at his new ranch superintending the arrangement for the buildings that he is about to erect there. When asked about the af fair Mr. Parker said that he, also, was not sure of the exact legal status of the case. "I have not conferred with the county attorney yet," said he, "and would not care to discuss the matter in the absence of fuller information. I am sure that the building of this hos pital was a movement that met the ap proval of a large majority of the tax payers of the county and if the meas ure is legally impossible it will not be the commissioners that are most in convenienced." SENATOR " MANTLE WILL SPEAK. Former Unite# States Senator Lee Mantle has consented to deliver the address at the Memorial day services of the Elks, which will be held on Sun day, Dec. 3, in the opera house at ,, lings. The local lodge is making every preparation for these exercises and the committee in, charge says that they will be the most impressive cere monies of this nature that have ever been given here. Special musical numbers will be pre - pared of an appropriate nature, and c the decorations will be suited to the occasion. THINK THEY.: HAVE THIEF STRANGER TRIES TO SELL VALU ABLE HORSE TOO CHEAP. CAPTURED AT JOLIET Refuses to Give a Proper Account of Himself and Is Brought to Billings and Placed in Jail. Word came to the sheriff's office yesterday that a stranger up the road was trying to sell a valuable horse under suspicious circumstances. An investigation of the affair de veloped the fact that the animal in, question was one that had been re ported to the stock inspector, J. F. Webb, as having been stolen from Burlington, Wyoming. As soon as this fact was ascertained the sheriff, W. P. Adams, and the stock inspector at once made arrange ments to capture the man "who hal tried to sell the horse. Inquiry showed that the fellow had started for Joliet and the two officers followed in hot pursuit. They arriv ed in Joliet too late to find their man, but early yesterday morning they learned that he had gone to the home of Dick Sullivan. They followed him to that place and made him prisoner. The fellow gave the name of Winkle, but would give the officers little information about himself or about the horse which it is supposed that he stole. Webb thinks that this man makes his home 'somewhere in the Gray Bull country. He was brought to Billings and lodged in the county jail, awaiting a hearing on the charge of horse steal ing.
