P. Morgan, namely, to return to work at last year's scale.

Attorneys for the successors to Miles Finlan in the Minnie Healy case sought a new trial of the recent suit decided ad versely to the Finlan interests, and in a HUNTING SEASON OPENS. Warden Scott Discusses the State Game Laws for the Information of Sportsmen. As the open season for game and aquatic fowl and big game approach es, State Game Warden Scott receiv es many inquiries daily as to the law upon different classes of game, says the Record. The last legislature made a number of changes in the law, with the result that many people are in doubt as to the seasons as they exist under the new law. Mr. Scott replies to all inquiries and mails a copy of the game laws to all who are inter ested. The open season for sage hens opened August 1 and continues until December 1," said Mr. Scott today. The last legislature placed turtle doves on the game list and the sea son is identical with that allowed for the killing of sage hens. No person will, however, be allowed to kill more than 20 of either variety in a single day. "The impression is abroad that there is a closed season on fish. The Mon tana laws permit the catching of fish at all times of the year, but it must be with a hook and line. Seining is prohibited as well as dynamiting. The use of dams or grab hooks is prohibit ed and a heavy penalty is named for the violation of the law in this re spect. "There is a provision, however, which permits the use of seines or catch nets in the Missouri river below Great Falls and in the Yellowstone river below Big Horn, but the nets must not have a mesh of less than two inches square. The sale of game and mountain trout is prohibited ex cept in the case of the latter when caught in private ponds. "Our open season for geese, ducks, and brant commences one month from today and continues until May 1, in BIGFORK PRONGS. The summer work at the biological station will be brought to a close August 16th, when Profs. MacDougal, Ricker and Elrod will proceed to Den ver to attend the annual meeting of the American association for the ad vancement of science. Prof. MacDougal, the botanist, has collected over 800 specimens, a large percentage of them hitherto undescrib ed. The collection when properly mounted will prove most valuable. Prof. MacDougal has made selections in duplicate, one set for the University of Montana and the other for the New York Botanical garden. William P. Harris is carrying on work of the same nature, making collections of lichens. Prof. P. M. Silloway has added a number of new species to the list of birds found in the western part of the state. Among them are the red-throat ed diver, the long-tailed chat and the Bartramian sandpiper. The last nam ed is considered extremely rare west of the Rocky mountains. A report of Prof. Silloway's work will appear in his bulletin on the ornithology of the support of the motion they today pre sented affidavits charging Judge Harney with drunkenness while on the bench and with being influenced in his decision by illicit relations with Mrs. Ada H. Brackett, who is alleged to bo the paid agent of Hcinze, and who sought by the blandishments of her sox to influence Harney in his de cisions. The affidavits specify nu merous meetings between Harney and the Brackett woman, and also set forth identical letters that passed be tween the judge and the woman, in which Mrs. Brackett plainly sought to bias the judge's decision. next year. Grouse, prairie chicken, fool hen, pheasant or partridge may be killed from September 1 to Decem ber 1. There is also a prohibition clause which restricts the killing to 20 in a single day by one hunter. "The now law permits the killing of deer and rocky mountain goat from September 1 to January 1, but only six can be killed by one person. Male elk can be killed from September 1 to November 1. "Non-residents who take advantage of our open season on game will be obliged to take out a license this year. For large game the license is $25, while the non-resident hunters' license for small or feathered game is $15. The licenses are not transfer able and one will not cover both class es of game. "A section of the law which I re gard of great importance is that re quiring the construction of fishways over all dams. In many cases these dams have been built, but notice has been served on all who have not com plied with the law and I expect within a very short time the fish in all the streams of Montana will be protected in this way. "One of the most important features of the law is that which makes all game shipped into Montana that is killed in other states subject to the same laws that obtain in this state. In the past game has been sold and it has been difficult to prosecute offen ders as they would put up the plea that the game was killed elsewhere. The new law prohibits this in a very effectual way. "There are a number of birds and animals that are on the prohibited list that cannot be killed at any time of the year. They are: Moose, bison, caribou, buffalo, quail, Chinese pheas ant, mountain sheep, antelope, female elk, beaver, meadow lark, blue bird, thrush oriole, woodpecker, mocking bird, goldfinch, snow bird, cedar bird, stork and all singing birds." P. of a of of in Flathead region to be issued shortly by the University of Montana. Prof. Maurice Ricker of Burlington, Iowa, has made collections in a num ber of lakes and ponds throughout the county. He is now investigating the lower animal forms of Flathead lake. His work will be of great value as these animal forms are the princi pal food supply of young fish. A complete series of photographs has been taken in the districts visited, of landscape and of animal and bird life. One photograph shows a rain bow which arches from Mout Teton to Mount McDonald, over McDonald lake, at an altitude of 10,000 feet. Final arrangements have been made by those now located at the station for the entertainment of the scientists and students from eastern colleges who will arrive August 9th.

Shortly after the arriv al of the party an expedition will start for the Swan range, known locally as the Kootenai, and will make the as SETTLEMENT NOW REMOTE San Francisco Strike Situation Is Not Improved THREATS BY STRIKERS To Call Out All Union Men in All Trades Unless Settlement Is Reached Before Monday By Associated Press: San Francisco, Aug. 3.—The strike situation remains unchanged.

The scien tists at the station have named a num ber of peaks in the Kootenai range hitherto undesignated, and in future the government maps will follow this nomenclature. Among the names ap plied are MacDougal peak, Craig Ridge, Silloway i'eak, and Arctomy's (so called from the large number of groundhogs that are found there, this being their name in scientific lore). Prof. Elrod, speaking of the names given different peaks, says the pro fessors interested would be pleased to have pioneers Inform them as to names heretofore used, that they may be retained and conflict avoided.

That Survivor Jackson's Story Regarding the but an is all be set re the to re reb SUSPICIONS ARE AROUSED SULLIVAN MURDER men to the to of was Is Not All It Was at First Supposed to Be. United States Revenue Cutter to Investigate. By Associated Press: Seattle, Wash., Aug. 3.—Ugly sus picions thicken that the story of D. Jackson, the only survivor of the re cent awful tragedy on Unimak Island, Alaska, in which Con and Torence Sul livan and P. .1. Rooney lost their lives, being reported as murdered by Indi ans, is not all that it was at first pre tended to be. The Nome Gold Digger of July 17 contains a story as told to that paper by Captain W. Crosby, of the schooner Kinghurst, that deepens the mystery. In Behring sea on June 17 Crosby spoke the schooner Lizzie Colby, whose captain requested him to report to the first revenue cutter he met that he, the captain of the Colby, had found the bodies of two "Suther land brothers" on the beach at Cape Lippin, Unimak. The bodies bore many knife wounds. Strewn about the beach were provisions marked "Jack son and Sutherland." Next day the captain of the Colby saw a white man skulking about and on the following day met him face to face. The man said he was a fisherman and anxious to leave the island, but made no re quest to be taken off by the schooner. The name Sutherland was later chang ed to Sullivan. The captain of the Colby stated further that the Suther lands had $10,000 in gold when land ed on Unimak and his theory was that either the murder had been com mitted by whalers or a quarrel had broken out among the partners. Tho revenue cutter Manning has been or dered to the island to investigate. MINERS SAY THEY HAVE BEATEN CLARK'S COMPANY Long Standing Dispute at Bridger Now Settled.
