R. Russel Reports on Mothers' Department of Woman's Club. During the winter months from Oct. 8 to May 1, the Mothers' and Philanthropic department of the Woman's club of this city held 16 meetings, distributed 640 garments and provided 160 pairs of shoes. In cluding 26 pairs of new shoes, to de serving parties in the city, according to the annual report supplied by Mrs. J. R. Russel, the eilicient head of the department. The majority of the shoes fur nished to deserving children and fam ilies were repaired and re-soled shoes. The winter was not a very severe one, yet the ladies of the department were at all times ready to meet any emer gency. Several hundred children were assisted during the season and the enthusiasm of the members of the de part ment Is always Increasing, accord ing to Mrs. Russel's report. It had been announced that at the meeting of the club on Friday after noon there would be a distribution of clothes to needy children. Because of miscarriage of plans, there will not be a distribution of garments, however, at the Friday meeting, Mrs. Russel announces. The next distribution of garments will be at the meeting of the club in the early part of the fall, when Work starts for the winter months. of of at CHAPTER IN CITY Temporary Organization is Ef fected at Meeting at Mrs. Tonkin's Home. Temporary organisation of a Butte chapter of the American Red Cross society is being effected at a meeting of ladies this afternoon at the home of Mrs. s. Gartleld Tonkin, 1017 West Broadway. There was a Butte branch of the Red Cross two years ago but it dis solved, and, at the present time, with war problems staring the country, the patriotic women of the city feel that there should .be something done to ward taking care of wounded and needy United States soldiers, whether at the fr* nt or in camp. The privilege of reorganizing the Butte chapter of the American Red Cro«ss society wus accorded by the na tional organization to the Marian White Arts and Crafts club in a tel egram received here late this after noon. l^ater a mass meeting will be held to perfect the permanent organ ization, when officers will be elected and plans outlined. The chapter will prepare bandages and all necessary supplies, not given in the general out fit, for the soldiers of Uncle 8am. There was much enthusiasm at the meeting today and from the large at tendance it la quite evident that a flourishing chapter of the American Red Cross will be in existence here within a few days. Mrs. Tonkin served refreshments to the ladles, fol lowing the meeting. Every man and woman in the city is eligible to as sist in the Red Cross work by joining the society and paying the small fees which are demanded. STREET GAR COMPANY TM HAIE REHEARING Claims That Present Service is the Best Under the Cir cumstances. Alleging that the aervlce being given the Montana street line at the present time Is the best under the circum stances, from the public point of view, the Butte Electric Railway company has appealed against the recent order of the Montana State Railway com mission directing that the service be restored to the original status. Borne months ago residents on West Park street and some on Montana street petitioned against a stub serv ice between the Holland rink and Park and Main streets and for restor ation of the original service, which made the Montana street line the main thoroughfare from the district in which the cemeteries are located to the heart of the city. The street car company had installed a service from the ceme teries district through Front street and up Utah and Arisona street to Park and Main. The petitions wanted a reversal of the conditions. The commission made an order for a r toration of the service on Montana and the rehearing will be held In Butte on May 2S. OP FREIGHT DEPOT Big Shipments on Northern Pacific in the Future Will Pass Through Butte. Two-thirds of the freight over the Northern Pacific, now passing through Helena, will in future pass through the Butte yards as a result of the ex tensive enlargement of the trackage and coal shed facilities at the local depot, work on which is now rapidly nearing a completion. Six weeks ago the Northern Pacific quietly began an extension of the Elast Butte yards. The sum of $100,000 is being spent on the yards and a force of 125 men is engaged on the project. In the past the majority of the freight passing east and west over the North ern Pacific tracks went through Hel ena. but on account of the fact that there was only one track on that line through the Mulian tunnel near Hel ena it was thought more desirable to enlarge the Butte yards and bring the large shipments through this point. As a result of the enlargement of the yards, the Butte depot may well lay claim to being one of the largest, if not the largest, in the west.
