Attorney General Dono* ara declines Bring Suit Against Contractors. H klena, N ov. 12.—The suits that were to be instituted iu the courts against the different book concerns hariug contracts to supply Montana with text books may not amount to as much as anticipated, judging from the tenor of the attorney general's letter to the state superintendent upon the matter. The attorney general seems to be of the opinion that according to the siiowing made as to the alleged violation of the contracts the amounts due the state are small and most of the bo OAs concerns appear to be willing to settle. The letter of opinion of the attorney general is an extended all air covering a dozen pages, typewritten, and con tains a review of the evidence secured by the state superintendent as well as the writer's conclusions in the matter. The legal department of the state has concluded that inasmuch as the school authorities of the several counties of the state offer / jo complaint, the vio lations reported by the state superin tendent are more technical than mate rial, and there is little cause to enter into any action with the book compan ies. The opinion states that an exam ination of the correspondence submit ted by Mr. Welch shows that where overcharges have been made for the books, the companies in every instance bave expressed their willingness to make good to the stale the amount. The four specifications made by State Superintendent Welch were that the contracts had been violated in the following ways: 1. By not giving and adhering to wholesale prices offered or given to wholesale prices in Montana as low as the wholesale prices offered or given to other states or territories, f. o. b. Chicago. 2. By selling their books to those who may have ordered them in Mon tana, including dealers, at a higher wholesale price than that guaranteed in the contract. J. By failing to keep a supply of books in at least one place in each county in the state to be sold at con tract retail prices. 4. By not giving the state of Mon tana the benefit of any reduction in the prices of the adopted books which may have beeu subsequent to the ex ecution of the contract and during the life of the same.

One of the many troubles which the commissioners will be conilonted with will be the effort to make the judges and clerks accept their pay tin a 12 hour day basis, when many of them believed that they were making lead pencil marks and calling off names at a return of $3 every eight hours. \> ill Continue the Search. I\Ai.isriu.i.. Nov. là. The party of picked men under the leadership of Dan Dooily, one of the best known of the old-time mountaineers and woods men in this vicinity, commenced their search for Superintendent Eg an this morning and will continue at least two weeks longer. If the body is not fou tnl the search will be abandoned, stive for the efforts of a few men. The picked men are till completely equipped to encounter the dangers and difficul ties of the search and are prepared for danger both from the elements and the wild animals that infest that sec tion of the country. This party will be the only one in the field iu the employ of the Great Northern railway, and the members are carefully selected for their ability as woodsmen and pathfinders. They will receive $4 per day and expenses and will continue the search until it is known to a certainu that the finding of the body is impossible. All the rest of the searchers will lie dis charged, but it is expected that many men, prompted by the hope of receiv ing the $l,0lK> reward, will remain in the hills most of the winter.

Proulx, charged with rape, was given in the district court Tuesday afternoon, the witnesses being R. l. Smith and Dr. Clay, of Malta. The defendant then took the stand in ijis own behalf and emphatically de nied that he was in the vicinity on the date of the alleged aseault. He as serted tii at he could prove an alibi, but was unable to give the naxnee of par tie« who would testify to his presence elsewhere at that time. The accused admitted that he had assumed a dif ferent name at nearly every place he had visited. The jury retired about six o'clock in the evening, and about four hours later returned a verdict of guilty as charged in the information. On Wednesday morning the case of Everett Walls, charged with killing John \V. Traylor in the Havre shoot ing scrape on August 21. was called. The following jury was secured to trv the case: Win. Howe. N. Shepherd, U*. Collins, C. Ruhe, F. Adams, C. \V. Buck, Jno. Üavey, C. Christian son, J. F. Phoenix, C. 1). Howell, Levi Cox and Jno. Simpson. Testimony in the Everett Walls murder case was given in the district court Wednesday afternoon by R. L. Brown and Ed. A. l'oag, who claimed to have witnessed the shooting, the latter having beeu wounded in the af fray. Dr. Ashburn. of Fort Assinni boine, also testified as to trie nature of the wounds inflicted upon the de ceased. On Thursday morning Pri vates Chas. Hilton, A. J. Myers and J. L. Bagley, and Sergt. J. A. Latour were placed on the stand. The evidence so far produced against the accused is to the effect that he and Jno. W. Traylor, the col ored soldier who was killed, were the only ones who did any shooting. The witnesses differ as to the number of shots fired, some claiming to have heard seven or more, but as all of them were attempting to escape from the building at the tin:e their memory of what happened is not particularly good. It is iu evidence, however, that of the number of shots fired, four of them took effect in the body of Traylor. The shooting took place on the night of August 21 in the Montana concert hall at Havre, where a dance was in progress, the trouble originating in a quarrel between white and colored soldiers. It is claimed that Traylor pulled Iiis gun and commenced shoot ing, which was followed by a fusilade from one or more other parties. Traylor was mortally wounded by four 38-ealibre bullets, and died a few days later: Edward A. Poag, another colored soldier, was seriously wound ed, ami wilj be a cripple for life, The day after the shooting, Private W alls left with Iiis regiment for Fort Keogh, ami was placed iu conliiiemant by the military authorities, being sub sequently transferred to the custody l.d the Choteau county officials.

Most of them are petty cases from Indian reservations. The cases of P. A. O'Farrell, tiie al leged editor of the Reveille, and A. W. Browse, its publisher, who were arrested three weeks ago on a charge of sending objectionable matter through the mails, will be considered by the grand jury. The state has sold to the Montana railroad about seventy acres of state lauds in Meagher and Fergus cjuuties for a right of way for the railroad's extension of its line from Hariowtou to I.ewistowu. The price paid was $10 per acre. R. A. Harlow, the presi dent of the railroad, appeared before the board in the interest of the pur chase, armed with the maps and other data relative to the amount of laud needed for the right of way.
