Discussion of Segregated Vice
Likely by Good Govern
ment Club.
Discussion of the $social evil seems
imminent at this afternoon's meeting
of the Good Government club, being
held at the Thornton hotel as a result
of the circular sent to county at
torneys by Attorney General S. C.
l ord. There is a considerable dif
ference of opinion on the subject
among members of the club, and in
event the subject is brought up by In
troduction of a resolution or anything
that nature, a lively debate is in
prospect. The part the Good Govern
ment club played in launching the
movement against the high cost of
living and the movement for a separ
ate industrial school for girls is under
discussion by the club today.
Many members of the Good Govern
ment club, it is known, are strong
advocates of abolition of the restricted
district, while others are equally
strong for firm, drastic regulation o*
segregated vice. Just before the meet
ing was called to order this afternoon
several members predicted that the
subject would not be taken up for
formal discussion at least.
A conference of the Good Govern
ment clubs of the state has been called
to meet in Helena- Jan. 11 and 12. At
that time a legislative program will
be outlined and in this program the
movement for segregation of boys and
girls at the state industrial school
will probably be foremost.

$ 12 ,.100,000 of earning assets, and with
an excellent outlook for 1917 huslncbs.

The " Trail-Hitters"
came by tke hundreds—says the
"Hit-the-Trail" Man. They expected
big things and they were not dis
appointed. Times are certainly pros
perous—everybody had plenty of
money. The prices proved so tempt
ingly low that the day's business
proved a record-breaker. The won
derful bargains pleased and satisfied
hundreds who came here with doubts
in their minds that they could buy the
home furnishings at the prices adver
tised. If you were not here today, come
tomorrow; there are dozens of good
things at considerable savings to be had.
These Bed Values Will Receive a Warm Welcome
