GAMBLING A MISDEMEANOR But The Penalty Is a Heavy One. THE MINIMUM FINE Is Five Hundred Dollars.—The Max imum Is a Thousand Dollars. The senate bill introduced by the committee on public morals of that body, to make gambling a misde meanor, amended so that the mini mum penalty is $500 and the maxi mum $1,000, and with other amend ments, was favorably considered by the committee of the whole in the house, says the Helena Record. When the bill came up first New ton moved that the enacting clause be stricken out. Kilgallan said he hoped the motion would not prevail, as he thought cities ought to get some revenue from gambling. "I don't believe we have reached the stage when we can afford to sell our honor for a little revenue," said Newton. Dixon .said he hoped that no bill would be passed that would make the minimum penalty for gambling one cent. Swindlehurst said the bill had been found to be defective by the judiciary committee and had for that reason been reported unfavorably. "I am surprised any one should say anything against the bill, since it was introduced by the committee on pub lic morals," said Chairman Lannin. "Is the house going to let me go home, Mr. Chairman?" inquired Ro land. u lf this bill is not killed I won't dare go home," he continued. The motion lost and the bill was read. Conner, of Cascade, offered an amendment to make the minimum penalty $25, and Dixon amended the amendment to make it $500. "It is argued." said Mr. Dixon, "that the only trouble with the present law is that it makes gambling a felony and IT WAS A LHCKY WRECK Six Cars Jump the Track and Two Are Demolished NEAR BEAR CREEK Not a Passenger or Trainman Injured. Rails Spread as Train Rounded a Curve. Two baggage cars badly broken up, a mail car and three crowded pass enger coaches off the track in a wreck which occurred near Bear Creek last night, and not a single person in jured, is the story in brief of the lucky wreck of the west bound train, No. 3, on the Great Northern Northern laBt night. Word was received in this city this morning that No. 3 had been wrecked near Bear Creek shortly after 7 o'clock last night, and owing to the fact that no reliable information could be had there waB considerable excitement up to a late hour. The scene of the wreck is near Bear Creek and a few miles from Summit, on a curve, with a gulch al most 400 feet deep on one side. As the trains struck the curve, going at the rate of 15 miles an hour, it is suppos ed that the rails spread. The engine, tender jumped, but strange to say, only left the track, but the two fol lowing baggage cars were swept from their trucks and dragged along the tracks, both being so badly demol ished that the wrecking crew simply rolled one over on one side of the track and lifted the other out of the way. The three passenger coaches, which were well filled, were only partially off the track, but it was not until about 9 o'clock this morning that they were again on the track and in condition to be hauled on west. Although the passengers and train men were considerably shaken up, not a single person received a scratch. The wreck can be added to the list of lucky accidents which the Great Northern has had in the past, in which not a passenger has been killed, and which have taken place at the most dangerous points on the line. Had the train last night been travel ing at a high rate of speed, nothing could have prevented the entire train making a plunge of almost 400 feet, and the loss of life would have been appalling. When No. 3 pulled into the city about 12 o'clock today, the passen gers had many graphic stories to tell of the accident. Many stated that they did not want to again pass through such a wreck, especially at such a point. All agreed that it wbb for tunate wreck, owing to the total es cape from injury of every person on the train. The train was taken west from here with the remaining baggage and mail cars on the rear end. The baggage car had, as evidence of its part in the wreck, lost the front steps and was considerably splintered. that you can't enforce the law. If you are sincere in wanting to stop gam bling, vote for this amendment. We are asked who asks for the passage of this bill. Is it the wives and mothers of Montana? I tell you you don't dare vote for this bill as it stands." Dee said he helped to make the pres ent law, and as it had been found to be inoperative he hoped the Dixon amendment would prevail. Conner accepted the Dixon amend ment, which then carried. Stull secured the adoption of an amendment to abolish by prohibition slot machines which expose to view obscene pictures under the same pen alty. Dixon secured another amendment to make the maximum penalty $1,000 fine. When the section prohibiting the business of fakirs was read Stull cre ated a laugh by inquiring if the sec tion wouud have any reference to Mc Iyor-Tyndall. Dixon moved to strike out the sec tion repealing the whole of the old law for the reason, he said, that it would remove the penalty for officers failing to enforce the law. Again Swindlehurst moved to strike out the enacting clause. The motion loBt and the bill was reported for passage. OFFICIAL COR RESPONDENCE What It Shows Concerning Russia's ATTITUDE IN CHINA And the True Position of the United States In Matters Pertaining To China. Washington, March 9.—Official cor respondence between the state depart ment and the several powers interest ed in the Chniese question, discloses the fact that that Russia has upon every occasion declared emphatically she had no purpose in holding Man churia. The United States govern ment has not entered into, any secret agreement with Great Britain or with any individual power, however, strong ly it may sympathize with the British desire to insure Manchuria against seizure, for on the contrary our gov ernment has discouraged such special alliances as to China and has adopted the practice of informing every one of the powers of the contents of any statement it has addressed to any one of them.

It is believed that he took occasion to again assert the sincerity and propriety of Russia's purpose relative to Manchuria. KILLED A BAD MAN Frank Howard Kills "Spee" Marsh.

RICH MINERAL LANDS. Special Correspondence of the Bee: Essex, March 9.—John Olson, of the extra gang at Brownmg is spending a few days vacation at Essex. At the present time of writing a blinding snow storm is passing over this locality, There has been noth ing to equal it in intensity this win ter. One can scarcely distinguish any object ten paces away. The management of the coal chute at this place seems to be an unenvi able position for the party in charge. He says he is required to speak too many languages to successfully man age the affair, and has too many hair breadth escapes to experience any pleasure.
