'HOB WHO IMlaiE ARE RE GRETFPL . YVEN ]itNKS TRIED Onie ;Hai,s an Explanation,` the' Rest Have None-Some .Have Money, Others Arc Floated and One or Two Will Work the Streets. To him who hath been toiling grie-i viously on the sun-kissed hills, sweat ing in the heat of the harvest fields, ' bending painfully to the weight of the ,shovbl on the grade, or wandering lonelily with the sheep over the gras sy range far from the sight or sound of men, town, with its many lights, its cool drink palaces and its unlimited supply of drink which occasionally, cheers and easily inebriates, is allur ing beyond measure and its entice ments often result in a sad tumble from virtue's narrow path. Not all of yesterday morning's drunks in police court were from the outlying districts, some Ablew in from other cities, some belong to Billings, but all were saddened and sorrowful. J. Boyle dropped from the water wagon with a loud thud which was heard over several blocks, attracting a policeman, who rescued the perish ing and packed him safely into the jail. Judge Mann this morning averred that it was not well to make so much racket in a descent from the wagon and fined the culprit $5 for the noise. thereof. He Will Reform. As Joe Williams, which is not his name, has hitherto been unfamliar to the police and has moreover an excel= lent standing in the community, and as he had in his pocket sufficient to pay his fine, the court took from him $5 to defray city expenses, and told him to go his way rejoicing, but so ber.

"I was on Bucke's stage when it overturned and spilled nine of us in the ditch, and the cloud of dust which was thrown up by the fall got in me throat and gave me a tremendous thirst. I came in town and tried to wash the thirst away with beer, but that didn't do it; then I tried wine and that wouldn't do it, so finally I tried whisky and be fore I could tell whether that was' suc cessful or not I was dead to the world.

A deed was filed with the 'county clerk yesterday tranferring the ditches water rights and real estate formerly owned by the Columbus Land and Water Power company to the Still water Irrigation company. The con sideration given is $60,000.

NEW THEATER SHOWS ITS SHAPE ASSUMES APPEARANCE OF REAL SHOW HOUSE NOW LOOKS LIKE SOMETHING Work of Lathers and Carpenters Causes the Costly Enterprise to Give Evidence of Its Purpose, an:d Soon It Will be The Goods. From Wednesday's Daily. With the most enthusiastic co-opera tion of archtect, builder and workmen, the new theater which is to make Billings a "real show town," to which the best attractions will come, begins now to look the part. The exterior, formed by the thick walls of cement is practically complet ed, and within, the 'balconies are as suming shape and form, the boxes in a vague way show that they are boxes and though the interior is still a lace work of scantlings, scaffolds and false work, the layman needs no explana tion to realize that he is looking at a theater. Electricians are busied in wiring the stage aid the house proper, carpenters are completing the basic woodwork of the prosentum arch, while lathers with quick hammers are covering the bottoms of the balconies 'with the thin strips upon which the plastel will later be laid. Stage is Bare. On the stage itself there is little to. remind ont of the ordinary stage wit its myriad ropes, its drops and flies, its traps and other mechanical con trivances. Far overhead toward the top of the stage is the floor from which the drops will be lowered and raised, but there is much work to be done before the stage will be ready and the curtain prepared to raise on the first show. A feature of the house which is es pecially to be commended is the ar rangement of the balconies, which have a remarkably steep slope, thus insuring a perfect view for every one of the audience. The orchestra seats also will be arranged on a well tilted i floor and far aloft in "nigger heaven" the gallery gods will not have to crane forward to see and hear. They t may loll back in their seats if they t please and still catch everything which goes on it should not be long before everything but the furnishing I of the house is done, and then the I painters and glaziers, the plasterers and paper hangers, the furniture men I and scene painters, the stage carpen ters and decorators, and all the rest i of the finishing crew will take charge and soon have the theatar ,roperly i beautified and ready for the first play.

NOTES OF INNS HERE IN TOWN COBB SAYS WE LEAD IN BUILD ING. - WILEIAMS WAS SCARED You Can't Tell Anything by the Color of a Cigar-Hotels Are Full and Trade Will Be Brisk for Some Months. From Wednesday's Daily. "Billings," said A. M. Cobb, of New York, at the Grand, "appears to be doing more building than any other city in the state just now. I have been in Butte, Helena, Great Falls, Missoula, Anaconda and Bozeman lately, and in none of them are there as many visible signs of building en terprise as in Billings. "I usually strike this city about once a year, and I am always aston ished at the number of new edifices which are being erected. The boom in this city is of long standing and appears to be not at all of a bubble nature, except that a number of citi zens are sporting 'bubbles' of the fin est six cylinder make." Joke on Williams. P. A. Williams, who is putting in the big central heating plant in this city, told a good story on himself the other day to a bunch in the lobby of the Northern. "I was looking over an undertaking establishment in the&: east a few months ago taking measurements for the installation of heating apparatus," related Mr. Williams, "and as I felt carelessly around a lot of cabinets and things my hand came in contact with something soft and cold. I reached further, grasped the clammy thing' and pulled it out to view. Then I dropped it with a howl and fled. It was the hand of a dead man. Now I'm not afraid of anything living, but a corpse is a regular chill bringer for me. I didn't come back that day." Cigar Salesman Talks. "There's a lot of bosh about this dark cigar business," said the cigar salesman at the Northern, as he pulled a light wrappered porfecto out of his pocket. Because a cigar is dark in color it isn't necessarily a heavy smoke. Many times the darkness goes only as far as the wrapper and even where it goes further some deal ers 'induce' the color by means of dyes. "Some of the strongest cigars I have ever smoked are light in hue, and some of the mildest have wrap pers as black as night. However, I'll admit that as a rule the color tells, for manufacturers do usually put the heavier .tobacco within a dark wrap per." Hotels Are Busy. Hotel business is keeping up re markably, according to the clerks of ,Billings hotels. It isn't often that a traveler cannot procure a room, but usually the hostelries are pretty well filled up and in one or two cases have had to send guests out to lodging houses because they could not place them. Hotel accommodations in Bill ings are far better than in Butte, where the comparative smallness of the hotels makes it impossible to get a room unless it is wired for in ad vance. When winter comes on, say the clerks, trade will fall off, but they look for later trade this year than ever before. ACTS ON CIVIL CASES Criminal Actions Take up Time of Judge Fox in District Court-Lehr kind-Hunkins Case Set For Trial. From Wednesday's Daily. The third day's sessions of the dis trict court which opened yesterday' Irorning fu the court house were so cccupied with the two criminol! cse',s which were being tried that action vas take.1 i.pon but two civil suits. In the case in which Pau!, and Frederick eohrkind are sa ii: Carl Hunkins as executor of the state of Ensign Hunkinus, for damages and re moval from premises, which they re cently purchased, a demurrer to the amended complaint was overruled and the defendant given until October 24 to make answer. Trial in the case was set for October 80. The action was continued for the term in the case in which the Dona vin-McCormick company is suing W. W.,Clarke for debt. LABORERS FOR RAILROAD WORK PASS THROUGH CITY IN SPECIAL TRAIN FOR WEST From Wednesday's Daily. A special train loaded with laborers for the Milwaukee grade in the west ern part of the state passed through the 'city yesterday morning. Al; of the men were recruited in St. Paul and were ehipped out here ,by a firm of employment agents there. The great- scarcity of labor of this kind which prevails in the west at the present time compell the railroa j to gather men in the east by offering them wages which seem especially inducing. The men are furnished wi'h free transportation to their destination and 'n many cases as manw as i&5 per cent leave the train before they arrive at the place to which they were bligped. This custom has become so is.ablish e. among the men who are traveling through the country and seek this means of getting free transportation that in many places the railroad com panies are seeking injuncitonarestrain ing the met' from leaving there emply after they have signed up an I se.curesd tranportation. , JUDGE MANN SAYS CEREMONY PRETTY GIRL OF 19 BECOMES A BRIDE. From Wednesday's Daily. "He sentences vagrants, disturbers and drunks, Tries people for theft or attaches their trunks, And when all these duties and trou bles are done Finds time to make two people sud denly one." into Judge Mann's office yesterday afternoon about 4:30 o'clock came boldly a young man and a pretty young woman. "Is this the place where 'they make marriages?" asked the young man "Matches," quoth the ju ge, "are supposed to be made in heaven, but I can marry you if you wish." "I don't want to marry you," pro tested the young lady hastily, "I want to marry Dave." Dave blushed and looked pleased. "Well, the long and short of it is that we want to be married and would like to know if you can perform the ceremony," he said. "I certainly can and I will," an swered Judge Mann, and calling in Charlie Heagney, the jailer,and-R. A. Burr, his clerk, as witnesses, Judge Mann rapidly pronounced the mar riage ceremony which made Miss Alice S. Matthews, aged 19 of Cowley, Wyoming, the wife of David A. Hen derson, aged 25 of Blue Springs, Ne braska. Following the ceremony he smiling ingly received the fee and wished the pair all the good things of this world, including twins. TONY MINDER'S TRIAL TCDAY FIRST OF THE WINE ROOM CASES IN DISTRICT COURT. GREAT LEGAL BATT L Rumored That Attorney From Adjoin ing County Will Assist in Conduct ing the Defense-Other Offenders Violation of Section 3. From Wednesday's Daily. Tony Minder will be tried in the district court this morning on a charge of violating section 3 of the wine room law which was passed at the last ses sion of the legislature by the lawmak ers of this state. Section 3 of the law makes it unlawful and punishable by a fine and imprisonment to conduct rooms in connection with a saloon which females are permitted to enter and frequent. ' The specific dates on which Minder is alleged to have broken the law are given as between June 24 and 27. At the preliminary hearing which was held early last summer, he was bound over to await the action of the dis trict court, and during the early part of the term his trial was postponed until today. It is expected that a great legal bat tle will ensue when the case comes to trial today, as he is charged with five different violations of the law 'and there are several other like cases pending, notable among them being the five cases against Alderman Jeff Brewer and John Ross, formerly pro prietors of the Globe theater and sa loon, and the case against William Conway, proprietor of the Stockade, a roadhouse a few miles east of the city, in which he is charged with a second offense. It is said that Legal talent from an adjoining county will be imported by Minder to assist his attorney, Fred H. Hathhorn, in conducting his de fense, although this report lacks con firmation.

HISTORY The Intentions of Helena Compared to Those of Jim. Items Picked up in Places Where Men Congregate. Just Gossip. From Wedhesday's Daily. Baseball fans, football enthusiasts, golf cranks and such folk must pale into insignificance in the presence of a real auto fiend, a man who has own ed and driven a car through a few sea sons and to whom the exhiliration of high speed is meat and drink. C. M. Bair, the sheepman, and Sena tor J. M. Kennedy of Butte, started a discussion in the Lanstrum cigar store last evening about the relative merits of various cars Mr. Bair Is a steam car booster, Mr. Kennedy a be liever in the Stevens Duryea, which, he says, beats all the other gasoline and steam cars by whole quarter sec tions. "My White Steamer will climb any hill in the world," said Mr. Bair. • The Stevens Duryea will climb them on the high gear," remarked Mr. Kennedy. "Ther's no limit to the horse power of the White when it strikes the road," stated Mr. Bair, "it will hop from boulder to boulder like a light wing ed albatross, and for a mudder, I've ridden through black dobe mud with it when the stuff oozed through the bottom of the car." Threw Mud High. "In John MacGinniss' car," replied Mr. Kennedy, "which is a Stevens Duryea, we went through a bunch of mud roads once where the stuff was so deep that it covered the hubs, yet the machine went humming through it so fast that it spattered mud all over the barns along the way." "Well, they're both good cars," con ceded Mr. Bair, "the Stevena D lur is the best of the gassers and the White the king of the steamers. But my racer, a White, is, I think, the most powerful car I ever saw. It carries 1200 pounds of steam." Mr. Bair looked at his watch and went out and the Senator glanced up ward at the advertisement of Ramleh cigarettes in which a pretty girl in western costume smiled down at the gazer. Origin of an Ad. "Funny thing about that piture," mused Mr. Kennedy. "Several years ago when I started the Butte Even ing News we wanted a nice cartoon for the front page and Al Dutton, who was then with the News, drew that picture. We used it and it showed up well, but I had practically forgot ten about it until I saw the picture up there. "This painting here has been color ed and the face a little changed but the picture is still Dutton's, near:y as it was when the first issue of t.-e News came out.'' Claims of Helena. Apropos of the claims of a Helena man who maintained that the capital city would have it all over Billings in a few years a Billings booster tout a good story last night. "The inan who speaks that way of Helena's chances reminds me of a story I read some time ago," he said. "There was an old bachelor in a country town who was sparking a maiden lady of indeterminate age. He had been running with her for some years, taking her to socials and other things of that sort and calling on her almost daily. One day the lady's old man called the laggard suitor in and said, "See here, Jim you've been going with my daughter for some years now an' I think it's about time I knowed what yer intention is.' "The old bachelor chewed his to bacco meditatively for a moment, spat deliberately and replied "Si, my intentions is honorable, but remote." RAPID FIRE JUSTICE FOR HENRY JONES ARRESTED, TRIED,. CONVICTED, IN HALF HOUR. From Wednesday's Daily. Arrest, trial, conviction and sentence to 60 days in jail within half an hour was .the experience of Henry Jones, who stole a suit case containing about $50 worth of clothes from Clark Wilson yesterday mprging. On complaint of Wilson, Officer Boy arrested Jones, who told some half a dozen conflicting stories to explain his taking of Jones' clothing and suit case. He said it was given to him, that he bought it for 48 and that he had sold it for $8. He did not really have the suit case in his hands, hav ing just pawned it for the aforesaid $3. When arrested, Jones was found to have a suit of iunderclothing belonging to Wilson upon him, and his protes tations were therefore of little avail. Pleads Guilty. He was brought before Judge Mann, sitting as justice of the peace, a com plaint was made out and read to; him and he was asked as to the nature of his plea. "Well, I guess I couldn't make you fellows think I didn't do it," he said. "I don't know where my witnesses are, and as there ain't no use of try ing to convince you that I didn't do it, I'll plead guilty." "Sixty days in the county jail," quoth Judge Mann, "that's all," and Jones was led out to be taken to the county bastile. WiITion recovered all his things and went away happy and contented. The whole proceeding occupied not more than half an hour from the ar rest to the final sentence. AGAIN FILE ARTICLES Stockholders of John F.

London, Oct. 16.-Consuelo, Duchess of Marlborough, sails today for NeW York, where she will pay an extended visit to her mother, Mrs. Oliver H. P. Belmont. She will be accompanied by her younger son, Lord Ivor Church ill. The duchess last visited America in 1905, when she paid a brief visit to her mother at Newport. While it is understood that she will spend some months in America, she will probably continue to make her permanent res idence in London, despite her matri monial troubles with the duke. By the terms of the separation the duchess retains Sunderland house, a magnificent mansion in the heart of fashionable London, renovated at enormous expense by her father. The duchess also has the exclusive care of the two children, the Marquis of Blan ford and Lord Ivor Churchill. The consideration for this privilege, it is rumored, was an extra $10,000 a year allotted to the duke by William K. Vanderbilt, father of the duchess. YEAGER, PLUNGER, GOES BROKE.

IN BILLINGS Peter Pederson Sent Her a Ticket to Come Here and Marry Him, But Miss Madison Cannot Locate Man of Her Choice. From Wednesday's Daily. Missing-One small Danish carpen ter, named Peter Pederson, who left 3519 Montana avenue a few days ago, moved to the corner of First avenue. north and North Twenty-fifth street, and left there Tuesday morning at 6 o'clock, destination unknown. Finder will please notify Miss Genna Madi son, a Danish girl, who is now in the city. Miss Madison met Mr. Pederson in Morehead, Minn., and there the young couple plighted troth and Peter start ed for Billings, where he was to make his fortune or enough to bring Genna along later and marry her. It was only. a month ago that Peter left for Billings, and about a week since he sent Miss Madison a ticket to come to Billings, giving her his ad dress. Since then he has changed that address twice, and Miss Madi son's letter heralding her arrival found him not. Three thousand, five hundred and nineteen Montana avenue is the home of a Mrs. Johnson, but when Miss Madi son went there at 6 o'clock yesterday morning she found 'no Peter, nor was any one at home. She then went to 3517, where Pederson's partner board ed, and asked about him, explaining that she had been sent for to come and marry him. Wouldn't Wait. She appeared in a great hurry, and would not wait for the partner to show up. When he did come to break fast Miss Genna was gone. The part ner, whose name is Anderson, told the woman at 3517 that Pederson was at J. I. Russell's home, corner of North Twenty-fifth street and First avenue north, and a Gazette reporter last night went to that address, only to learn that Pederson, who has been working at the ice plant, left the house Tuesday morning at 6 o'clock, carrying all his baggage, and has not been seen since by Mrs. Russell, who knew nothing of his destination. And there the matter rests. It is evidently a tragedy of errors, not of intent on Pederson's part, for had he intended to deceive his trusting and pretty fiancee he would not have sent her a ticket to come to Billings.. Journeys end in lovers meeting, and if Peter Pederson and Miss Madi son will meet today at the police sta tion they will be reunited, and may. upon the procuration of a marriage li cense, immediately be made one by Judge Mann, who' is a gentleman of quick and certain action when it comes to uniting loving couples.
