OBJECTIONS SUSTAINED.
Court Decides That a Man Is Not
Obliged to Make Home for HI«
Mother-In-Law,
Justice Russell, of the supreme
court, the other day granted James
Hyland a decree of separation from
his wife, deciding that, in refusing to
live with him without her mother, she
had legally deserted him. Hyland, in
his suit against his wife, declares that
he was and still is willing to live with
her, but that he will not have her
mother around.
"For the sake of peace," the affidav
it continues, "I was willing to sweep
and dry the dishes, although 1 knew
these were not a husband's duties. I
gave my wife $14 out of the $15 1
earned as a weekly salary, but, noth
ing I could do satisfied my mother-in
law, who insisted upon annoying me
upon every possible occasion."
The affidavit then goes on to say
that, unable to bear it any longer, lie
ordered his mother-in-law out of the
house, and that his wife left with her.
Justice Russell, in allowing the de
cree, states that the husband cannot
be compelled to support his mother
in-law. lie holds that Hyland was
right in ordering her out of the
house, and that this was not sufficient
cause for his wife to leave him.
THE NEXT THING NEEDED.
Nnvy Now Looking for Armor Device
to Overcome Superior l'enetru
tton of Solt-.Voai-il Cup.
Consideration is being given by
naval experts to the invention of some
armor device which will overcome the
superiority imparted to an armor-pier
eing projectile by a soft steel cap. The
bureau cf ordnance has received sev
eral suggestions, the adoption of which,
their authors believe, would nullify the
effect of the soft-nosed shells.
As the United States has led all oth
er nations in the adoption of the soft
nosed cap, there is no crying need for
haste in providing American men-of
war with additional protection. The
authorities understand, however, that
the success of American experiments
with the cap will lead other nations to
coopt the invention, and it is therefore
desirable that some plan should be de
termined upon to overcome the supe
Viority of the shell.

The People Demand Pure Water.
Every summer when the sun begins to scorch the lawns and the horse *
flies commence to swarm, Hamilton's melancholera-morbus days hare come.
This is largely owing to the fact that the town's pure water supply is
extinguished and a foul water supply is substituted. By this arrangement
certain valuable horseflesh and beautiful landscapes, belonging to Mr. Daly, -
are kept in a fairly comfortable condition and the people of Hamilton, who
are valuable only in their own estimation, are kept miserable.
The pure, cold, refreshing water that within a few hours is melted from
the snow bauks high up iu the mountains and dashed down the Skalkaho,
over waterfalls and cascades, into the reservoir of the town's ideal water
works system, is diverted to the Bitter Root stock farm and the mams that
supply the people of Hamilton are pumped partially full of a stagnant fluid «■
drawn from the mill-pond that is the receptacle of train-loads of sawlogs
that are alive with vegetable and animal matter and which reek with a sick
ening slime, and ot dead and live carcasses and filth of all descriptions.
This is not an exaggerated statement. A visit to the banks of that pond will
convince anyone. Much sickness has resulted from the use of this water*
and much worse sickness is threatened unless prompt measures are taken.
The town of Hamilton granted the Anaconda Copper Miniug Co. a free
franchise for its water works system and guarantees it protection. The peo
ple of Hamilton pay liberally for the water furnished aud in.return are en
titled to fair treatment.
Section 3 of Ordinance No. i.U, which grants the free franchise, provides -
That the said Anaconda Copper Mining Co. and its successors and assigns,
shall at all times provide a full and sufficient supply of water for the use of
said town for fire and other purposes, aud for the use and wants of the in
habitants of said town; said water shall be pure and wholesome and free '
from animal, mineral aud vegetable substances, that would render it un
healthful and unfit for domestic purposes."
Nobody pretends that any such water as stipulated in the above istbein©.
furnished. It is given out, however, that Manager McCrackin, of the water
works, Supt. McGinty of the Bitter Root stock farm, and their se?retary- -
editorsof the Ravalli Republican and Ravalli Democrat, declare, in excuse,
that they and their families drink the water and they don't see why other
people can't !
Such assertions as that are very unsatisfactory to persons afflicted with
a raging thirst and an irrepressible inclination.to break all past records iu
pedostriauism, especially when it is remembered that those fellows would.'
drink each other's heart's blood or suck tho Pacific ocean dry through a
straw if by so doing they can remain riveted to thoir jobs!
Excùses arfe not refreshing these hot enervating dog days. The people
want pure water and which may be had through a simple'twist of some
body's wrist—there's plenty of water in the Skalkaho and thousands of feet,
of pressure to force it down through the mains and hydrants.
