Judge M. Bourquin served as judge|^
of the court while Senator Wheeler as
United States district attorney prac

not try the Wheeler case but will call

In this case an outside judge will
be called in from some other court

Of Silk Passes
j Seven million dollars went through
Butte about 9 o'clock Thursday at a
mile a minute.
j It was a shipment of raw silk be

York over the Chicago, Milwaukee &
St. Paul railroad in two special trains
of 11 cars each, the largest single
cargo of silk ever to enter the port of
Seattle. The trains travel 15 minutes

Every facility of the great railway
system is placed at the disposal of
the immensely valuable raw silk ship

when the Japanese steamship tied up
and the moment the ship was made
fast removal of the silk began. It
took one hour and 46 minutes to trans
fer the silk from ship to trains and
do all the necessary checking.
The cars are special silk refrigera
tors, specially equipped for running
at high speed. Time of the fast trans
continental trains is beaten in making
the transfer from coast to coast.
The raw silk, which comes in three
colors, pink, black and yellow, is care
fully packed in small cartons. There
are two layers of oiled silk and one
of oiled paper covering the skeins.
Each small package has a value of
about $30,000. Shipments are handl

In accordance with the law and general
custom which has existed for many years,
next Monday will be Labor Day, and a day
which will be everywhere observed as a legal
holiday. To those who are the actual bread
earners of the land it is web that one day be
set apart for recreation and twenty-four
hours release from the hum and burr of ma
chinery, to escape for a time that seething,
swarming throng of toilers as they trudge
wearily to and from their labors, Moreover,
the brain and brawn of the country the work
ing masses who earn their every penny by
the honest sweat on their brow- and by an ut
ter exhaustion that accompanies their physi
cal being at the close of the day.
And Labor Day, if put to proper use, can
be termed in higher acceptance than merely
the meaning of the phrase. It can be made
a day of gala celebration for the producers
of the wealth of the world. This fair day of
Autumn can be dealt with as the harvesters
observe their Indian summer, and anticipat
ed for many moons as a time of games, poli
ties, conversation, or a complete rest, physi
cally :*nd mentally, and possessing a "peace
that passeth all understanding." The pur
pose derived means far more than the days
activities are concerned. It leads beyond the
comprehension of the mind which morally
and socially, with loftier aspirations, and
purer thought, and a perfect contentment, at
least it creates a mighty resolve to forever
protect our country's enduring free constitu
tion, and loyal to its stainless flag.
