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

foreign corporations shall do business

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
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
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

powers in disbarment cases. As

from going to the supreme court de
The governor today signed the Tew
ey bill allowing railroads to install
interlocking plants, and the Word bill
repealing the law requiring the publi

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

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

against it. The house also passed the

Looks Like the Train Robber.
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
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.
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.
" Dear Mbs Pinkham : —I was sick

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.

Mrs. Lizzie Roecap,
519 Smith St., Millville, N.J.
" 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.
