For Accommodation of Farmer» —Going
After Free Mail Delivery—Much
Business Transacted.
Mayor M. J. Flaherty and all the
members of the council were present
at the regular monthly meeting- of the
city council Monday night. J. H.
Sapiro represented the legal depart
ment of the city. All matters before
the council were cleaned up in a busi
ness-like way.
After the usual routine business had
been disposed of, salary and expense
bill audited and reports of city officers
examined and approved, considerable
new business was transacted. The
bonds of City Treasurer Taylor in the
sum of $5000 and of James Fort,
cement contractor, in the sum of $500
were approved.
A resolution was adopted requiring
that ali city work, involving the out
lay of more than $250, be advertised
for bids.
A new sidewalk ordinance was pre
sented by Attorney Sapiro and re
ferred to committees on ordinances
and streets and alleys.
A petition from the executive com
mute of the Chamber of Commerce,
recommending legislation prohibiting
the sale of dangerous explosives and
the observation of a "safe and sane"
celebration of the Fourth was present
ed. The mayor and council while
favoring the idea, felt that, in view of
the fact that the dealers had made
large purchases, no new legislation
could be made operative in the brief
time intervening. It was suggested,
however, that the mayor issue a proc
lamation requesting that the people
refrain from discharging dangerous
explosives within the fire limits. The

The Bitter Rooters Play Horse
With the Soldiers—The
Missoula Giants Next.
It was the same o ! d story last Sun
day—Eddie Hammond's bunch played
horse with soldiers from Fort Mis
soula. The only run the soldiers got
was a gift. Although very one-sided
the game was interesting.
Gebeau for Hamilton, pitched a
strong game, allowing only four hits
and making two clean safties himself.
In the first inning Gebeau pitched
nine strikes in succession. In Ham
ilton's first crack at the ball, McQuaid
reached first on an error. Hammond
was safe en a fielder's choice and Wil
liams knocked the ball to the fence
for two bases. Fort Missoula's run
came in the ninth, when Teevan got a
base on balls ar,d Davis hit safely to
right. Davis was afterwards caught
off of first by Marx. Owings got a
safe hit, advancing Teevan to third.
While Spaulding was at bat Teevan
stole home and was safe because of
McQuaid's wild throw.
Fort Missoula lined up as follows:
Teevan, shortstop; Davis, left field;
Qwinys, catch; Spaulding, right field;
McKillop, second base; Smith, center
field; Blair, first base; Nichols and
Winkler, third base; Pear, Blair and
Diffendoerffer, pitchers.
Hamilton — McQuaid, shortstop;
Hammond, third base; Williams, cen
ter field; Snyder, first base; Marx,
catcher; Raftery, second base; Gray,
left field; Fullerton, right field; Ge
beau, pitcher.

Jury in Burney Perjury Case Disagrees
— Another Burglary Case Being
Tried Today.
Miss Emma Madeen, whom the
court had appointed attorney for
Robert O'Conner, charged with burg
lary, last Monday secured the dismis
sal of her client and caused Judge
Myers and all the attorneys to sit up
and take notice by springing a su
preme court decision that proved a
clincher and of which all seemed to be
in blissful ignorance.
O'Conner was charged with burg
lary, the offence consisting of the
theft of a pair of pants from a butcher
shop at Stevensville. When the case
came up for trial, after the jury had
been selected and all the preliminaries
cleared away, Attorney Madeen arose
and quietly asked that the case
against O'Conner be dismissed on the
ground that he could not be guilty of
the crime charged—there having been
no trespass in the premises. In sup
port of her contention she cited a
Montana supreme court decision that
holds, in a similar case, that the pub
lic is privileged to enter any public
place of business during business
hours and that trespass is a condition
precedent to burglary. At most the
accused could only be convicted of
larceny. The court sustained the
point and the case against O'Conner
was dismissed. In the case of the
State vs. James Murphy, charged
with burglary, a similar case, the
court instructed the jury to return a
verdict of acquittal.
