IN THE STATE LEGISLATURE.
S— i. Law Makers Will Hold Night Sessions Un til Time of Adjournment. H elena , Feb. 17.—Night 9ession9 are now to be the order of the legisla ture, at least for the house end of the assembly. This has been decided on by the republican members, who are working in harmony together. The ■ work of the senate is delayed some \ what owing to the absence of Senator Durham, chairman ot the printing committee, and the consequent failure to have bills printed. The early part of the session today begun at 2 o'clock and was given up to committee re ports. It these reports S. B. Mo. 85, relating to the conditions under which foreign corporations shall do business in the state, and H. B. No. 96, relating to estrays, were killed. S. B. No. 90, was introduced, and referred to the judiciary committee. It prohibits the carrying of firearms by Indians off a reservation. The two deficiency appropriation bills for the state penitentiary, under a suspension of the rules, received favorable con sideration in committee of the whole, and later were read a third time and passed. In addition to passing the Allen county division bill the house did a large amount of business this morn ing. One of the features of the session was a statement made by Everett, chairman of the arid land commission investigating committee. He asked for an appropriation of $300 to enable the committee to employ a lawyer and a stenographer, and in so doing he stated that the reports of experts al ready employed by the committee to investigate the books of the committee leads the committee to believe that $30,000 of the funds of the commission have been misappropriated. He also declared that a shortage of $4,600 in the accounts of the bookkeeper of the commission has been brought to light. While On the face of it these facts ap pear sensational, they created no sen sation in the house, for the reason that the facts are pretty generally un derstood. Two bills introduced by Representa tive Miller early in the session provid ing for the repeal of the law imposing a license tax on merchants and pro fessional men were killed this morning in the house. They were Nos. 4 and 5, and a majority of the ways and means committee reported them back with a recommendation that they be indefi nitely postponed. In the afternoon the house killed the bills providing for the election of the state mine inspector and the state coal mine inspector and amended the bill recommended by the judiciary commit tee giving the supreme court exclusive powers in disbarment cases. As amended the bill excepts pending ca ses, but does not preclude such cases from going to the supreme court de novo. The governor today signed the Tew ey bill allowing railroads to install interlocking plants, and the Word bill repealing the law requiring the publi cation of ocojpation license moneys. H elena , Feb. 18. —Signs of the im pending end of the session are in the air. Though the house was somewhat sluggish in its movements this morn ing it put forward a number of bills on their way to final passage, and this afternoon it passed a number on third reading. The flood of bills now sweeping in upon the senate from the house will make that body sit up o' night, and forego its morning's sleep, even though it is a swiftly moving or ganization. The senate made quite a slaughter ing of house bills today, killing the bill reducing the board of prisoners from fifty to forty cents per day, the bill increasing the number of deputy county attorneys in first-class coun ties, and the bill requiring signs to be placed at road crossings and junc tions. Bill No. 8'o, which allows sending orders for blank books and printing supplies out of the state to eastern houses was favorably reported from the committee. The house passed a lot of bills to day, among them the one to consoli date the clerkships of various boards. The initiative and referendum bill al so went through, not a vote being cast against it. The house also passed the bill limiting the number of days coun ty commissioners may sit during a year. The state fair bill reported back from the committee favorably and with a recommendation that it pass as first introduced, carrying an appropriation of $10,000. There was a large number of com mittee reports at the morning session. The committee on labor reported the Maddox fellow servant bill back with the recommendation that it be indefi nitely postponed, and the report was adopted without debate. The same reported back with a fav orable recommendation the house bill to prohibit employers from forciD employes to board at company board ing houses. The bill went to the printing committee. Bills were intro duced as follows: H. B. No. 29t>—by committee on cor porations other than municipal, relat ing to the fees of the secretary of state. H. B. 297—By Swindlehurst, regu lating the manner in which foreign in surance companies may do business in the state. H. B. No. 298 and H. B. No. 299— By the ways and means committee, amending the laws in relation to col lection of personal property taxes in conformity with a recent supreme court decision. H. B. No. 300—By Vagg, to pre vent fires along railroad rights of way. H. B. No. 301—By Allen, providing the manner in which the county treas urer shall send out tax notices. H. B. No. 302—By Conner, to print 25,000 state maps. H. B. No. 303—By Hafferlin, pro viding the manner of adjudicating fire losses. Measures Enacted By Legislature.

A naconda , Feb. 17. —Notwithstand ing the innocent looks and good ap pearance of Napoleon Savoy, the au thorities say there is much reason to believe that he is really the man who held up the Northern Pacific train at Bearmouth, rifled the mail pouches and killed Engineer Dan. O'Neill. Whether he is the man who actually did the deed or not, he will in all probability be put on trial for the crime. Savoy has the most peculiar hands ever seen on a man, and it is on this peculiarity that Mail Clerk Otis bases his positive identification. Otis claims that he cannot be mistaken and that he is willing to swear that Night Chief O'Brien nabbed the right man this time. While he is a small man, his hands are very large and the fing ers ate of a peculiar shape. The thumbs are of immense size and his nails are only about a sixteenth of an inch in length. They are so peculiar as to attract attention, and all of the trainmen of the train who saw the rob ber agree upon this point. May He lieariiiouth Robber. Washington , Feb. 18.—Franklin Baer, alias Joseph Meyer, alias Meier, who was arrested in Baltimore Sun day night on the charge of robbery, told Detective O'Dea that he had been concerted in a recent hold-up on the Northern Pacific in which he secured the larger part of the sura of $11,650 which he says is to his credit in the Drovers' National bank of Chicago. He added that he had to spend $0,000 to enable him to leave the locality where the hold-up occurred and for that reason had assumed the name of Meyer. Baer claims to have a home stead 70 miles from Butte, Mont., and today sent a letter to his wife under the name of Baer at that address. British 1'arliainent Opens. London , Feb. 17.— King Edward, accompanied by Queen Alexandra and surrounded by the court and all the officers of state, opened parliament this afternoon. Early in the morning the vaults of the houses were searched for imaginary conspirators, as usual, by the yeomen of the guard, carrying ancient lanterns and useless halberds. The movements of the troops taking up position along the route of the pro cession followed, so the crowds which had been attracted by the fine weather and desired to witness the royal pa yant did not lack entertainment dur ing the long wait. GfUk m N A Danger Period Through Which Every Woman Must Pass. Owing to rÊodern methods of living, not one woman in a thousand approaches this perfectly natural change without experiencing a train of very annoying and sometimes painful symptoms. At this period a woman indicates a tendency towards obesity or tumorous growths. Those dreadful hot flashes, sending the blood surging to the heart until it seems ready to burst, and the faint feeling that follows, some times with chills, as if the heart were going to stop forever, are only a few of the symptoms of a dangerous nervous trouble. The nerves are crying out for assistance. The cry should be heeded in time. Lydia E. Pinkliam's Vegetable Compound was prepared to meet the needs of woman's system at this trying period of her life, and all women who use it pass through this trying period with comfort and safety. TWO COLUHNS OF PROOF. " Dear Mbs Pinkham : —I was sick and nothing seemed to do me any good until I began taking Mrs. Pinkham's medicine. "It was Change of Life with me and falling of the womb. I had severe pains all through my body. I had a a terrible cough and people thought I had consumption. " I took six bottles of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and two of Blood Purifier, and two boxes Liver Pills, and I am now stouter than I have been for a long time. I can do all my work now, thanks to Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. " If any one wishes to write me, to verify these statements, I will gladly answer their letters." Mrs. Clara Ciiezem , Jewett, 111. " Dear Mrs. Pinkham : — For seven years I had been suffering, was pass ing through the Change of Life, and my womb had fallen; menses were so profuse that at times I was obliged to lie on my back for six weeks at a time, could not raise my head from pillow. I ihad been treated by several phy sicians, but got no relief. " I was advised by friends to try Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, which I did, and after taking it six weeks I was able to be around all the time and ,do my house $5000 FORFEIT if we cannot forthwith produce the original letters and signatures of above testimonials, which will prove their absolute genuineness. Lfdia K. Pinkham Medlclue Co., Lynn, Mali, Creditors Want Investigation. Helena , Feb. 1".— J. E. Hample, of Butte, today filed objections to the petition of A. J. Davidson, of Helena, who has recently been declared a bankrupt before Jud^e Kuowles. In the petition Hample declares that Da vidson tailed to put in amongst his assets a valuable ranch which he owns in the northern part of the state. The liabilities of Davidson amounted to nearly $400,000 and Iiis assets were placed at practically nothing. Referee Balliet at once issued prae cipes summoning eight witnesses to ap pear before him next Mond ay, Feb. 23, and testify as to Davidson's holdings. The application was made by Edward C. Kussel, attorney for J. E. Hample, of Butte, one of Mr. Davidson's cred itors to the amount of $2,435.92. It is alleged that Mr. Davidson is the own er of a large cattle and sheep ranch in northern Montana, and that he sold cattle to the value of $74,000 last year. Tenileney of the Times. The tendency of medical science is tow ard preventive measures. The best thought of the world is bein^ given to the subject. It is easier and better to prevent than to cure. It has been fully demonstrated that pneumonia, one of the most dangerous diseases that medical men have to contend with, can be prevented by the use of Cham berlain's Cough Remedy. Pneumonia always results from a cold or from an attack of influenza (grip), and it has been observed that this remedy coun teracts any tendency of these diseases toward pneumonia. This has b-en fully proven in many thousands of cases in which this remedy has been used during the great prevalence of colds and grip in recent years, and can be relied upon with implicit confi dence. Pneumonia often results from a slight cold when no danger is ap prehended until it is suddenly discov ered that there is fever and difficulty in breathing and pains in the chest", then it is announced that the patient has pneumonia. Be on the safe side and take Chamberlain's Cough Reme dy as soon as the cold is contracted. It always cures. For sale bv D. G. Lockwood, druggist.

" Dear Mrs. Pinkham : — I have worked hard all my life, and when the Change of Life came I flowed very badly for weeks at a time. I would stop for a day or two, then start again. I went to see a doctor and went through an examination, and spent two hundred dollars for medi cine and doctor's bills, but I did not get the relief I expected. " At that time I saw Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound advertised and began its use. I have found it to be just what I needed. " I wish every woman suffering from female trouble would try it. Ï recommend it to all my friends." Mrs. Wm. Daily , Millbank, S .D. " Dear Mrs. Pinkham : — I feel it a duty I owe you and every suffering woman in the land to tell of the wonderful results I have found in using Lydia E. Pinkliam's Vege table Compound and Liver Pills. " Passing through the Change ot Life, some of the physicians consulted said nothing but an operation would Bave me. liut your medicine alone cured me."— Mrs. Maonolia Dean, 1441 First Avenue, Evansville, Ind.
