CountyAttorney Wines yesterday^commenced an action In the district^court In the name of the state BgajMt^Thomas O. Miles to enjoin him^from obitrurtlnjc the county road on^his ranch west of Rutte. The affidavits^of Road Supervisor Howen and County^Commissioner Lloyd were llled with the^petition and show thai the road- has^been s public highway for 20 years^from llutte to Herman and Morton^gulches, and from Anaconda to Dillon,^and that It crosses the Miles ranch be^^low Silver Bow. .Miles came into pos^^session of the ranch lonK a t ier the^road was established and with the^knowledge that It was a public high^^way. Some time last April he built a^fence across the road and put In a Kate^with a lock and chair on It. Judx^^Speer Issued a temporary injunction^and ordered Mr. Miles to appear in^court at 10 o'clock on Nov. 2 and BaM^cause, If any, why the Injunction^should not be made permanent.
Thelawyers engaged In cases set for^trial In the district court yesterday^worked all kinds of schemes to secure^an adjournment so that they could at^^tend the football game, and what their^scheming failed to accomplish luck se^^cured for them. In Judge Speer's court^the case against James MeKinley,^dharged with robbery', was culled for^trial, but as 12 of the Jurors tried the^case of O'Brien, McKlnley's partner,^who got 12 years In the penitentiary,^they were disqualified to sit on McKln^^ley's case and the panel was soon ex^^hausted. A special venire of 50 nanu s^was Issued and male returnable to^^morrow morning and the court took an^adjournment until that time.
Thetrial of Sloan and McMahon, the^alleged advertising contract forg-'rs,^was continued until Monday morning.
InJudge Mcllatton's court the ap^^peal case of Peter H. Kelly against W.^H. Black, a suit for $68 claimed to be^due for labor, was called for trial.^Both the attorneys In the case were^apparently anxious to see the football^game, and feared the trial might take^up too much time, so the defendant's^attorney moved for a continuance and^the plaintiff's attorney announced to^the court that he would not resist the^motion and the court promptly over^^ruled It and ordered the case to pro^^ceed to trial. A jury was waived and a^small amount of testimony introduced,^after which the court took the case^under advisement and adjourned until^to-morrow morning.
Thedefendant in the case of M. C.^Harris against the Iwett Water Coal^Mining company, a fuit for $23,000 as^alleged commlsMOji on coal sold in the^state ^y the defendant while the plain^^tiff was, he claimed, the sole agent for^the company In Montana. Tt answer^denies that Harris had a contract, the^terms of which made him the sole^agent of the defendant In the state and^denies that he was to POeelVI II outs^a ton commission on all coal sold by^or for the company in Montana. It Is^alleged that his agency was eeataed to^Butte and vicinity and that he di 1 no:^use proper care or diligence as such^agent, but on the contrary he handled^other eoal also and gave it preference^over the defendant's product to the^defendant's great Injury.

Mr.While, who was re-elected grand^secretary, ha-s held that office for 10^years, and now enters upon his elev^^en tii year.
A:the afternoon session the B^ wiy-^elected officers were installed with Im^^pressive ceremonies.
Atthe morning iiession reports were^received from the various standing^committees. The Judiciary commliiee^recommended, among other things,^that the grind masters liero.iftor, In^making tli^ ir reports, number their de^^cisions, and recommended that the con^^sideration of all decisions rendered on^quoatl his arising In trivial milters,^prior to an appeal, be Indefinitely post^^poned, for the reason that It is n^t^competent for parties engaged In trills^!^ solicit or obtain dee sionj on ques^^tions arUlng during the tlaM the cause^Is on trial, but that the (asstlM affe. t-^ing the rights of the part 1st must be^determinitl by appeal. AH the recom^^mendations of the Judiciary com mi. tee^were approved.
Thefinance committee made a report^of the b'.oksand accour.is of ill^ grand^seerc'ar:^ and |a^l grand treasurer and^found tiii-m correct. The committee^also v'.o iimend'd tha: the grand see-^retary's salary be tfcgra*s4 from JMiO^to $1,000, ^ recommendation that^brought out wine string opposition,^which resulted In a compromise ly^which th. salary was iHghtiy raised, in^connection with an appropriation to^furnish the secretary with additional^facilities for all office.
Theladies who represented lf^ Rc-^bckali 1 elgei In the stato and m. t for^the purpose of forming a H^ bekah^grand lodge, made lots of trouble for^the grand lodge by organizing without^tlrst following some stringent grand^lodge rules. The committee on RtOtkak^lodges made a long report to the grand^lodge this afternoon, In whl'h It was^set forth that the ladies had ;net and^perfected a petimainen't organization,^regardless of law, and that they had^been premature, and should first have^applied to the grand lodge for author^^ity and Instruction. The grand lo lge,^iRdore the mistake had been, called to^Us attention, had already made certain^orders under which the ladles acted^iast evening in the excuipiitlcition of^their work, thus further entangling the^legal question. The committee recom^^mended .that the matter be ro.fMTfafl to^tho judiciary committee with instruc^^tions to formulate a temporary dispen^^sation and ratify the action of tiie He-^b. kalis. Tho Judiciary committee took^tlie matter in hand and the trouble was^linally settled, even If it was not en^^tirely straightened out.
Itwas decided at dhe morning ses^^sion to hold the next annual grand^lodge ait Helena, although the Helena^delegates Wcrenot uinUeiilurly anxious^to have It. It Is very likely that this^melon Is the last one that will be^held outside of Butte and 11 el M in^in lay yean Ho come, for there h 11 been^a general though unexpressed opinion^in the grand lodge 'that Is is aafalt to^the delegates and to the small local^lodges to send the grand lodge to small^towns where the lodges can hardly af^^ford to bear the expenses, ^lit akwat^l^r^iks tie I i il lodge to take care ut^u grand lodge,^ Ball one of the prom-I^^ncut 4lUgatoo, ^ami it costs the^grand lodge from $iW0 to $S00 more to^hold the annual session in a small,^out-of-the-wmy place than It would In^Butte or Helena.^ The Helena people^\v re willing enough to let Ilixtte have^the next annual aeafloa but it was de^^cide! that Helena should put up at
thenext aaeetltag.
Thereport of Grand Master Nlcol re^^gard.ng the charges preferred against^K. it. Powell of Anaconda by Colfax^lodge of that cltv, that they are ln-^^uffl -lent and ordering the same dis^^missed, wan approved with the re^^mainder of ^he grand master's annual^report He based his decision on the^ground that the charges conflicted with^the ilaws of the sovereign grand lodge,^which reads las follows: ^It was held^that no person on being admitted^to membership In this order thereby^looses any rights he bad In his posses^^sion as a citizen.
Hisright to protection by the civil^authorities is not impaired by becom^^ing an odd Fellow: the laws of the^land and the courts which administer^theiii are the Mirefcl and nio^t proper^means by wlvlch Justice can be ob-^t lined.
Oneof the rules of the subordinate^lodges require* that all nif nitvre shall^seek their remedy for all rights on ac^^count of membership, or eonneeitloti^then with. In the tribunals of the order^only, without resorting to the civil^courts f. r their enforcement In any^event. It was charged against Mr.^Powell thai: he brought Colfax lodge^Into public shame and disdain by hav^^ing David Cohen arrested and brought^brfore the police court of Anaconda^on the charge of assault and batitery^after he no 1 i referred charges against^him. in the I ^ lge. with conduct unbe^^coming an Odt Fellow, and while such^charges were betng under Investiga^^tion, both charges referring to tho^same affray and growing out of their^membership in the lodsre. The charges
againstPowell recited Chat by his dis^^graceful conduct the members of Col^^fax lodge were forced to go Into the^police court and make public the cause^of the trouble beitween the two men^and thereby brought shame on the^lodg* ^nd Its members. The decision^of the grand lodge means that an Odd^Fellow can, If he wants) to, tell all his^troubles to a policeman, even if they^originate In a lodge room.
