Goff disposed of his inte rest in the "Hamilton Fair" to his partner in the business, Horace A. Roberts, who will assume full control of the business. Qoff and Roberts have had charge of the business for a little more than a month and have made many charges in the store, the stock having been renewed and en larged. A department has been added to the store tor the handling of butter and eggs and other farm produce. Mr. Roberts, the new manager of the store, has had much valuable experience in the mercantile business. He was connected for some time with the Missoula Mercantile company and with the J. P. Reinhard hardware company of Missoula. D. T. Goff the retiring member of the firm will return to the real estate office of F. H. Reeser.

Watson. ! j BUTTE MINERS UNION NOT INVOLVED Refuse to Assist the Switch men and a Shutdown no Longer Threatens. Following the statement of Presi dent John D. Ryan that all the Amal- j gamated mines and smelters would have to close down unless the ore could be kept moving, the Great Northern railway announced that it would guar j antee this providing the mines kept running. With these developments the situa- ! tion is rapidly clearing up in Butte, todays news dcfiuitely indicating that I the Miners' union proposes to have i nothing more to do with the switch men's troubles. An officer of the Butte Miners' union today authorized this statement, the \ statement having been read and ap proved by him after the interview was given: "Butte Miners' union No 1. has washed its hands of the switchmen's troubles. This union will take no sides in the matter and the switch man must settle their own troubles, the miners are through " This simply means that instead of passing the winter in idleness some 20,000 Montana workingmen will con tune to do business at the old stand. MRS. TOTMAN'S LUNCHEON Mrs. J. E. Totman delightfully en tertained twelve ladies at luncheon on Monday in honor of Mrs. John Gunnis, ot Anaconda, who has been visiting her son for a few days, and in honor of the visiting ladies in town, Miss Keno, Miss McCrackin anti Miss Steele.
