FRUIT SCALE. Dreadéd Pest Found in a Shipment of Apples Received at Great Falls. The dread San Jose scale has made its appearance in Great Falls. Of all the pests affecting fruit and trees of every variety this is the greatest and in many sections of the country where it has gained a foothold thousands upon thousands of dollars already have been expended, ornamental, shade and fruit trees have been cut down in great numbers and yet the work has just begun, says the Tri bune. In certain sections of the Pa cific coast towns and cities have been almost entirely divested of their or namental and shade trees and orch ards have been cut in two. Yesterday the deputy state fruit inspector, C. E. Hubbard, received by mail samples of fruit infected with the insects from State Inspector Edwards at Butte and later in the day made a tour of the fruit stores and stands about the city, with the result that he found one apple in a small shipment badly infected with the scale. This may appear but a small matter, but it is sufficiently large to within a year or so, spread the scale to all parts of the city. The work of inspection is not yet completed and will not be for several days. The infected fruit was shipped from the southern part of the state and probably came from the coast, where the scale is so bad. San Jose scale is discernible by a scab which forms in rows on the out side of the fruit. Underneath this scab is a small yellow worm, which sustains life by sucking the sap from the fruit, causing it to wither and be come dry. It works in the same man ner on trees of all kinds and within a year, so scientists have determined, will have done its work so that the tree will die. No tree, bearing green foliage, is exempt from its ravages. While the worm has life no movement of its body can be determined with the naked eye. It propagates very rapidly. Unlike many other pests of a similar nature, it is not spread by the winds, but by birds carrying it on their feet from one tree to another, so that in one season it is capable of get ting a start in all parts of any sec tion. It is brought to different sections in shipments of fruit. Where any of the fruit is thrown away birds get to it and carry it to the trees—and so far as has been discovered, there is no remedy for it other than to cut down any and all trees. On Puget Sound, where it first made its appearance last year, this spring it was necessary in the city of Seattle to cut down fully 10 per cent of the shade trees in the city, to say nothing of the destruction of small private orchards and grounds where once flourished fine ornamental and shade trees. The pests, it js supposed, first came from the Orient in fruit shipments. They made their appearance in this country in Southern California first and from San Jose valley took a name. At the present time every state in the union is devising ways and means to rid itself of the scale and many have expended large sums of money. On the coast and in the eastern and southern states it is very bad this year and in some of the northwestern cities it is beginning to appear. There is a law providing a severe penalty for the shipment of infected fruit and a sharp outlook will be kept by the local fruit inspector to see that it does not get a hold in Great Falls, if it can be prevented. WANT NOYES RECALLED. Nome Bar Petitions President Mc Kinley. The bar of Nome have asked ft! the removal of Judge Noyes. A pet tion to President McKinley was for warded by the steamer Senator, and it will probably be a race between Judge Noyes and the petition to see which gets the ear of the president first, says the Seattle Times. The petition to the president reads as fol lows: , "Nome, Alaska, August 15, "To William McKinley, President of the United States, Washington, D. C.: "Mr. President—The undersigned members of the bar, residing and practicing law at Nome, respectfully petition and represent as follows: "That the Honorable Arthur H. Noyes, the present judge of the dis trict court for the second division of the district of Alaska, is vacillating and dilatory, weak and partial, neg ligent, careless and absolutely incom petent; that he has lost the confidence and respect of the attorneys of the bar of his court and of the residents of his judicial district; that his orders and decrees are violated and treated with open contempt; that the interpo sition of a fearless, competent and honest judge is urgently required at Nome to prevent further riot and bloodshed, to relieve the congested calendar, to preserve law and order, and to protect life, liberty and prop erty. "Therefore, we most respectfully petition you to remove said Arthur H. Noyes from his office as judge of the district court for the second judicial division of the district of Alaska, and that you, by reason of the emergency existing, immediately assign a judge to succeed him in this judicial divis ion." Judge J. P. DeMattos, formerly of Whatcom but recently of the Teller City bar, arrived by the Senator and in speaking of the Noyes case and the petition to President McKinley, said that there is no politics -in it. To prove this Judge DeMattos said that on the Saturday night before he left Nome he attended a mass meeting where a vote was taken on the ques tion of having the president recall Judge Noyes, and out of 1,000 persons present there was a vociferous aye, and but one nay, to the vote.

"Swiftwater Bill" Gates, the Klon dike millionaire, has broken out again with the matrimonial fever—this time in Tacoma. He has married once more and at last he has selected a_ bride outside of the Lamore family. Hitherto Bill has contented himself with marrying into one family. He married two of the Lamore sisters after they had served time in the va riety halls of Butte, but in each in stance Bill parted from them, fading away through the open portals of the divorce court. According to last ac counts Gates has taken a wife from his own circle of relatives and eloped with his niece. A dispatch from Ta coma to the San Francisco Chronicle tells of his latest escapade and the pursuit that is being made to overtake Bill and his latest bride. Bill is well known in Butte and the wives he ac cumulated during the early part of his matrimonial career are familiar to many residents of this city. The story the Chronicle prints, under date of the 24th is as follows: "Pretty Adelina Lydia Boyle, aged 14, is the third wife whom William C. Gates, better known as "Swiftwater Bill, ' has married within as many years. What makes the case more in teresting is the fact that she is Gates' own niece, and was won by him des pite the protestations of her mother, who is highly indignant that her bro ther should have eloped with his niece. So indignant is she that she has sworn out a criminal complaint charging Gates with kidnaping her daughter. The Tacoma police have wired the San Francisco police department to arrest Gates on his arrival there, which is expected to be tonight. In that event an effort will he made to bring him back here at once for trial. "Gates arrived from ltawson about one month ago and has spent most of his time since between Seattle and Tacoma. As near as can be learned. M iss Boyle came here only recently with her parents. She is small for her age and everybody connected with the affair seems to be at a loss to understand how Gates came to be at tracted by so young a child. One day recently they wont out together, and as near as can be learned went to Che halis and were married there. "It is not known positively here that Gates has been divorced from his second wife, whom he married soon after Grace Lamore, the Dawson va riety actress, secured a divorce from him. it is stated that his second wife is seriously ill in the east, while her child is being cared for by her mother in Dawson. Gates is said to contri bute toward its support. It is this un certainty about Gates' release from past matrimonial entanglements, to gether with his general gayness, which particularly worries his third wife's mother. The latter was at the depot Thursday night, when Gates and his wife appeared to take the train for San Francisco. The girl refused to leave her husband, and an attempt was made to have an officer arrest Gates. The only officer at the depot was just then engaged, however, in ar resting a horse thief, and could not respond. Learning that the train was being searched, Gates and his wife quietly withdrew, passed out of the de pot by a private entrance and took a carriage for South Tacoma where the Portland train was kept waiting until they arrived. A police officer at South Tacoma was requested by telephone to arrest them. He showed a disposition to do so, but before he could secure authority from police headquarters, the train had pulled out." "No representative of the local po lice force met the Oregon express last evening," says the Chronicle of San Francisco in its local columns, "and if Gates and his bride were aboard they found no one at the ferry to intercept them. It is not believed that they came to this city, but if they did they arc probably in hiding, for they aie not registered at any of the hotels which have known Gates as a guest in times past. Captain of De tectives Seymour declared last night I liât tile San Francisco police had re ceived no request from Tacoma to ar rest Gates, and that no sieps can be taken to apprehend him until such a request is received." THEY LIVE BY STRIKES. There are a great many facts con nected with labor troubles that re! dom become public; facts that noticed only by those who are in con stant touch with these struggles be tween the mechanic and his employ er. Many of them are of a serious na ture, but not infrequently there is the humorous side to the story. Possibly one of the best of the latter class was detailed by a prominent railroad man who has been mixed up in strike trou bles in many sections of the country. He was talking to some friends about the great steel strike now in progress, when he said: "Did you ever notice what a numbei of curious people are brought togeth er whenever a strike occurs?" Waiting for an answer, and seeing only that his friends expected a story, he continued: "Yes, there aie a number of then There is the strike breaker, the strike loafer and several others who have a class of their own. These in dividuals fairly live on strikes; it is their one business in life to follow them up, and they drift from ocean to ocean while plying their vocation. "Take the strike breaker. He is a sort of professional. Having learned that a strike is in progress he imme diately puts himself in communica tion with the capital end of it and pro poses to go to work for from one to three weeks at regular wages, but with a goodly slsed bonus attached. ADM. WATSON SPEAKS OUT Would Give Detractors of Schley a Chance TO PROVE ASSERTIONS That He Is a Coward.—Before a Court Martial Would Himself Pre fer Charges. By Associated Press: Now York, Aug. 30.—Admiral John C. Watson is quoted in the World as having said in a private conversation at Washington: ".f any naval officer assorts that Admiral Sohle y is a coward, and the fact comes to my knowledge, I will see that the delin quent is given a chance to vindicate his opinion before a court martial. I will prefer charges against such an offender myself." His position seldom lasts more than three weeks—he does not want it to, for at the end of that time he flnds himself possessed of a few dollars with which to go on a spree until he is ready to go to the next striking center. ' "But your strike loafer—there is a character for you. He has a scheme for living without doing any work at all. and at the same time flnds him self voted a good fellow. He has no trade und is anything but a mechanic, but he gets there. It matters not to him whether it be railroad hands, ma chinists. garment workers, or what not on strike, he is at home in any community. Ail that is necessary for him to know is that a strike is in progress; he will accomplish the rest in short order. "The tirst business of the strike loafer is to approach the agent who is looking for men to take the strikers' places. It is little trouble for him to obtain promise of employment and he is sent off to the Held of action. Now is when he begins his fine work. On arriving at the shop he looks around, takes off his coat as though he was going to work—and then in a surpris ed way suddenly learns that a strike is in progress. On goes his coat again, and, approaching the foreman, he will immediately declare that he lias been cheated, adding that no man could got him to work in the place of a man who was striking in order to better the condition of the laboring classes. "Arguments are useless; the man is determined, and out he goes duett ly from the shop to the strikers' headquarters. To sympathetic ears he tells a story as to how he wc,3 de ceived by the agent who engaged aim and how thoroughly against his prin ciples it would be to go to work in a striker's place. Incidentally, tie tells what an awful time he had in escap ing from the shop where, he declares, even force was used to detain him. "Of course there is a hurrah among the strikers, who are immédiate.y ready to lionize the man. He is care fully quartered and fed for a weefc : ) two, and money is given him to hc'p him out until he can obtain other em ployment. He remains as long as there is a good living coming le him freely, hut as soon as that stiov s signs of stopping he departs to look for another soft tiling in the way ->f a strike."—Philadelphia Evening Tele graph.
