Much moisture has fallen, the storm being general in this part of the state. The weather conditions deterred some from going to Helena yesterday, but the trains out carried large crowds and more left today. Reports from Helena last night were to the effect that it was snowing there, the condi tions being about the same as here. Locally the storm put a stop to building operations temporarily, but it was needed in the country, which was becoming very dry. It is estimated that more than half of the wheat crop had been harvested and shocked before the storm broke. Another long period of good weather' is looked for. In Lewistown the storm put the electric light system out of commis sion completely at about 11 o'clock last night, but by 5 o'clock this morn-! ing everything was in good shape again. In all the surrounding mountains the snowfall has been very heavy yes terday and today. Too Late tor Classify.

Saturday afternoon a Milwaukee force began the work of running a spur from the Hilger line near Miller street across Main street to a connec tion with the Great Northern track w here it ends northwest of Main street. The w'ork did not attract attention un til Sunday, when it was about com pleted. Mayor W. D. Symmes and City Engineer A. C. Birkland at once got! busy and it was found that the track; was being put in by the operating de partment, having nothing to do with the office of Resident Engineer Baker, the order being to make a physical connection with the Great Northern for convenience in handling freight, something that is certain to be ordered by the state railway commission. The! matter was taken up with Mr. Good now, and on inquiry it was found that the whole thing was just a mistake.

Clerk of the Court James L. Martin has received an important communi cation from John Speed Smith, chief naturalization examiner, relative to the filing of declarations of intention to become citizens prior to Sept. 27, 1906, on which date the new law went into force. It is held that all declara tions of intention made prior to the passage of the law ol Sept. 27, 1906, become invalid on and after Sept. 27 of this year. The letter received by the clerk of the court is as follows: "Seattle, Wash., Sept. 13, 1913. "The Clerk District Court, Lewistown, Mont. "Bear Sir: I deem it proper and only fair that you be advised of the posi tion of the Bureau of Naturalization relative to declarations of intention on the P art of aliens made prior to sept. 27, 1906. A decision of the united States district court for the eastern district of Arkansas hold 3 the limitation placed upon declarations of . .» intention under the present naturaliza tion law (act of June 29, 1906), will also apply to old law declarations made prior to Sept. 27, 1906, on the date said new law became operative, to-wit, Sept. 27, 1906. Therefore, all such declarations in the opinion of ... ... ' wi the bureau, will become invalid for naturalization purposes on and after Sept. 27, 1913, and all petitions for naturalization based upon such old declarations on and after Sept. 27, 1913, will be opposed by this office for the reasons stated. It is therefore suggested that when an applicant for citizenship calls upon you to file a petition that you advise him of the view of the Bureau of Naturalization, that he may decide whether to file a petition based upon such old declara tion, or surrender the declaration and make a new one, which, of course, would mean a delay of two years be fore he could file a petition for citi zenship based thereon.
