Delegation to Be Sent to Hel
ena With Memorial From
People of City.
A memorial will be presented by the
business men and others of Butte to
the present legislature protesting
against the proposed extra tax on
mining companies. Facts will be
cited and figures quoted in support
of the contention of the people of
Butte that it is manifestly unfair to
overtax the mining corporations,
which are already carrying and have
always been willing to carry their Just
share. This was decided upon last
evening at the annual meeting of the |
Chamber of Commerce. Talks on the j
subject were made by Vice President ;
A. R. Currie, J. Bruce Kremer, Her- {
man Blank and others.
Mr. Kremer made an extended ad
dress to the chamber in which he
pointed out that if the proposed 6 per
cent license law is passed, the local
mining companies will have to carry
a tax of 8.87 per cent in addition to
the taxes on improvements. "Tin*
proposed action of the legislature af
fects all here, and when conditions are
normal again we will find that if the
companies are called upon to pay ex
ess license taxes It will be necessary

Through Chairman James H. Rowe
the committee on the "smoko
nuisance," a report was submitted to
the chamber stating that a conference
had been had with Frank M. Kerr of
the Montana Power company and the
Phoenix Electric company, who in
formed the committee that an auto
matically controlled underfeed stoker
lant. similar to those used in Chi
cago and other largo cities, had been
ordered many months a"o and was to
have been delivered in September.
The manufacturers ha\e been delayed,
however, and it will be another GO dayi

believed that the new plant will

The eight outgoing directors were

seven holdovers, will meet later
and elect officers of the chamber. It
has been customary in the past to give
the president two years of office. J.

Life Looked Black to Girl Who

The child is the daughter of Arthur
Smith, a night watchman. She was
found unconscious In her homo at No.
52 Assanplnk street, with the empty
drug bottle beside her. Mrs. Hannah
Long, n policewoman, rushed her to
the hospital just in time to save her.
When slie recovered she told what she
had been through.
Ever since she could get about alone

Ruth's mother died a few months
after the last haby was born, and all
the responsibility fell upon the shoul
ders of the eldest child. She had had
enough already, for the mother had
been a semi-invalid, and the father
worked at night and slept days, so ho
could help hut little.
Because of the doctors' bills and the
ever-increasing family there was no
monev in the Smith home for toys or
dolls. Actually Ruth had never pos
sessed that dearest of girl possessions.
All she knew of them she had seen
through shop windows. She told tho
doctors and nurses and policewoman
that a hit of bright ribbon or a toy
would have made her wild with delight.
Recent'y, through lack of amusement,
she would put her little family to bed
early at nights and wander about tile
streets, enviously looking at the r
ing picture houses which she could not
enter, and the bright scenes which she
couldn't lako part in.
This led to reprimands, and, finally
growing desperate, she said, she found

To Relieve Catarrhal
Deainess and
Head Noises
Persons suffering from catarrhaJ deaf
ness and head noises will be glad to
know that this distressing affliction can
usually be successfully treated at home
by an Internal medicine that in many
Instances has effecte<l complete relief
after other treatments have failed. Suf
ferers who could scarcely hear have had
their hearing restored to such an extent
that the tick of a watch was plainly audi
ble seven or eight Inches away from either
ear. Therefore if you know of someone
who Is troubled with head noise*
catarrhal deafness, cut out this formula
and hand It to them and you may have
been the means of saving some poor suf
ferer perhaps from tetal deafness. The
prescription can be prepared at home and
is made as follows:
Secure from your druggist 1 o*. Par
mint (Double Strength), about 76 cents
worth. Take this home and add to lt
^4 pint of hot water and 4 os. of granu
lated sugar; stir until dissolved. Take
one tablespoonful four times a day.
Parmlnt Is used in this way not only
to reduce by tonic action the infalmma
tion and swelling In the Eustachian
Tubes, and thus to equalise the air pres
sure on the drum, but to correct any
excess of secretions In the middle ear,
and the results it gives are nearly always
quick and effective.
Every person who has catarrh in any
form should give this recipe a trial.
Custer County Attorney Urges
segregated Vice as "Moral
Miles City Is resisting closing of its
restricted district with more vigor
than any other city in the state just
now, and in answer to many letters of
protest from the Cowtown, Attorney
General S. C. Ford has declared that
"an exception in the enforcement of j
the laws will be made neither at Miles |
City nor any other locality in M 011 -
This declaration by the attorney !
general was prompted by a letter from
County Attorney Frank Hunter of
Custer county, urging that a restricted
district in Custer county is a ' moral
"The trade is supplied," says the
Custer county attorney, "and kept alive
by growing girls entering these houses,

strict surveillance prospective inmates
and those who frequent the streets it

the source of the supply."
May Reopen at Great Falls.
In circles in a position to know it
was rumored In Hutto yesterday that
an attempt will be made tonight to re
open the restricted district in Great
Falls. An effort, it was stated, would
be mads to keep the district open for
at least two days. Suppression is ex
pected, hut property owners of the
district there anticipate that ultimate

A majority of Montana cities and
towns have taken the redlight abolition
order ns did Butte, and a great many
scarlet women have left the state as
a result. However, owners of prop
erty in such districts are hoping that
the order will be tempered so that
operation under certain restrictions
will be permitted.
Property Owners Obey.
There was little need for police sur
veillance in Butte Incident to the or
der closing the district. Property
owners of that section themselves took
tho initiative in the matter of enforce
ment. Realization of their liability
and the penalty attached to renting
property for an Immoral purpose led
them to stop traffic In the district.
Tho property owners In this instance,
say the police, co-operated with the
authorities as they have never done
before. At least one of them, a big
property holder of the district at that,
is resigned to abolition. "It's coming
sooner or later anyway," is his phlloso
phy. He has given up hope for with
drawal of the abolition order. The
others are not so pessimistic.
Many Are Leaving Butte.
Many late denizens of Butte's dis
trict have left the city. Twenty-flv<
per cent of the 300 or 400 women havi
departed for other cities and states,
according to estimates made by the
police. "Every woman who has the
money is getting out," the officers say
Many are pawning their Jewelry and
selling their furniture and effects.
Pianos and phonographs bought on
time" are being returned to dealers
Several Montana cities abolished
segregated vice long before the order
of the attorney general. In others
sporadic movements for closing were
initiated at intervals during the past
two or three years.
