1 NINE-HOUR DAY GOOD NEWS FOB THE STRIKING FOUNDRY MACHINISTS. SAME PAY AS OLD SCHEDULE Extra Fay for Overtime—Company Meets Practically All the Demands of the Men and the Great Works Will Again Become a Hive of In dustry—Welcome Announcement. (Special to Inter Mountain.) Anaconda, May 1.—President William Scallon, of the Anaconda Copper Mining company, issued an important order yes terday afternoon relative to the labor employed at the foundry department of that corporation, where a strike of ma chinists* has been in operation for about two months, and where the members of the Moulders', union have refused to work for about half that time. Superintendent John S. Hickey re ceived orders between 4 and 5 o'clock yesterday 'afternoon to grant those who are still in the employ of the company and those who may be employed here after, a nine-hour working day, and the order reads that the hours shall be from 7 a. m. to 12 o'clock noon, and from 1 to 5 p. m., with the schedule of labor remaining the same as it has been here tofore when 10 hours constituted a work ing day. Mr. Liekey says the only ex ception to this is in the case of a few first class mach in ir.ts who will be allow ed a. little more. Meet All Their Demands. Under the new order of things, the company has been allowed practically what the strikers were contending for. The machinists walked out because Superintendent Hickey refused to pay them 45 cents an hour for nine hours' work, while they were getting 40 cents an hour for ten hours. There Is now only 5 cents a day difference between what the men demanded and what the company has granted them, for, under the order the men ahe to be paid as much for nine hours as they formerly got for 10 hours' work. As, to overtime. Superintendent HMc ey declares that it is proposed to also pay the men time and a half for over Î lme on Sundays and holidays, which is ust what the striking men demanded. The moulders, however, wanted $4.50 per day for ten hours, or an Increase of E 0 cents above what they had been ac customed to getting. Welcomed in the City. The citizen;. of Anaconda are gratified at the happy conclusion, and rejoice that the difficulties which, at one time, seem ed so threatening, are about to pass off. One thing is certain, the strike has done an injury to the town and it will take the business firms some little time ito recover, even after condition^ get back to their normal state again. But now that the friction is over, every one looks forward to an abundance of pros perity this summer and fall.

Fitz Patrick Phone 67. in E. Com. Ave. The machinists and moulders were not ready this morning to declare the strike off, for the reason that their union has not yet been recognized, and the com» pany does not seem to be willing to give the recognition they ask. "Otherwise," said one of the machin ists, who has taken a prominent part in the strike, "we are very well satisfied. The difference of five cents a day does not cut any figure with us. But Mr. Hickey has made the statement that he does not propose to put any more men to work, and we believe that he does not intend to take back the men who went out three weeks ago. "We believe that the concession woul t not have been made had it not been for the strike, and we still insist that the union should have recognition before tiv, strike is declared off." Dispute Over Agreement. When seen this afternoon, Superin tendent Hickey stated that the nine hour day and present scale of wages granted the men at the foundry depart ment this morning is what he promise 1 the men two months ago would be done on the 1st of May. He also stated that 'the department had been reduced to a repair shop, and the force employed at present would not be increased. George O'Connor, John Bleoo and E. E. Darling, representing one of each of the committees from the machinists that have waited on Mr. Hickey, called at the Inter Mountain office this afternoon and denied the statement that Mr. Hickey had offered at any time to grant a nine hour day on May 1. They also stated that their proposition to sign an agree ment to settle the strike with a nine hour day, to take effect on May 20, was rejected by Mr. Hickey. ANACONDA VETERANS TOO SHY Did Not Fall Victims to the Blandish ments of the Visitor Kept Close Grip on Their Cash. (Special to Inter Mountain.) Anaconda, May 1.—The story of how some of the G. A. R. veterans of Butte had been victimized by a Mrs. Emer son Tracy of New York, who claimed to be a member of the colonial dames and the Daughters of the Revolution, has led the silvery haired veterans to con gratulate themselves that they were not served as were their Butte breth ren. There may be a few who fell eany prey to the alluring influences and win ning ways of the visitor, but not a mother's son of them Is willing to admit it. The woman was 'here and she succeed ed in getting herself "entertained" at a special meeting of the G.. A. R. held for that purpose on Saturday night. One old soldier declared last night, af ter reading the article in the Inter Moun tain that he was "dead leary" of the woman from the very time he let his eyes fall upon her. "1 didn't like her talk," he said, "and I told some of the veterans so; but the boys seemed to think she was all right. Really, though, she b?i a right smart woman, and I never thought the dame lived that could use such fluent lan guage as she did. "I didn't exactly like the way the woman introduced herself. I believe it was the day she arrived in town, I re ceived a note from her with no name signed to it, that she wanted to meet some of the old soldiers at the Montana hotel. I supported maybe she had sim ply neglected to write her name, so, in company with another veteran, we hunt ed her up. She said she was an elocu tionist and wanted to get up an enter tainment here and would give the big end of the proceeds to the local lodge. A special meeting was called and the lady was received with all the honors that Grand Army men know how to be stow upon a distinguished visitor. "But thal is the last we have heard of her. She told ua she was coming back after a brief pilgrimage through the state. But I don't believe she will come." It has transpired since the lady's op erations were exposed, that she tried to ingratiate the ladies of the Woman's Literary club. She sent word to the club last Saturday that she desired to meet a committee from that organiza tion at the hotel; that she had a prop osition of importance to submit to them. A committee of ladies called upon her and they were treated to a great draft of hot air, but the literary ladles failed to get enthused; they concluded that House Cleaning Offerings 25 per cent, off on all rugs and ingrain art squares.

HARVEST F OR LEAD PLUGGERS Slot Machines Quit Heavy Losers Yes terday—Bogus Nickles for the Gambiers. Anaconda. May 1.—Yesterday was the last day for the slot machines to operate in Anaconda and many of the owners when notified of the fact that they should be taken out, turned them to the wall or wheeled them out immediately, while oth ers thought to take advantage of the few hours grace and not stop the play or re move the machines until midnight. The few that were kept in commission, however, were played vigorously up to the last hour, and for the first time on record a big majority of the machines quit loser on account of the free use of lead plugs in place of nickles. It seemed that a large number of slot machine fiends were stocked with lead nickles and waiting for just such an opportunity to play them in and get even. A LIGHT MAY TERM OF COURT Only Two Criminal Cases, and They Will Be Short—Elk Butchers Up For Trial. Special to the Inter Mountain. Anaconda, May 1.—The regular May term of the Second district court will open at the county court house next Monday morning with Judge Napton presiding. Criminal cases will be rather scarce during the May session, there be ing only two in that line to come up for trial. One is that of John Gallagher who stands accused of the rape of little Mary Eilen Lappan, whose parents are esti mable people residing at the present time near Willotv Creek down in the valley. The other case is that of the three elk killers, A. Meihoffer and others, who undertook to bag game out of the season allowable by law, in the vicin ity of Helmville last fall. The three mcr. implicated in the affair were ar rested by Tom Mullen who was then a deputy under Sheriff Conley and sta tioned at Helmville. The men were at caught in the act of killing elk, but when the deputy ran onto their camp he found them in possession of a large quantity of meat, some of which they had packed in barrels and were bring ing out for shipment to Anaconda. There are a large number of untried cases on the criminal calendar, and no doubt a god many will be set for trial during the May term.
