DISCUSS TOWN AFFAIRS Town Council Holds Regular Meeting and Transacts Usual Amount of Business. The regular meeting of the town coun cil was held on Monday night, the offi cials present being President Robinson, Clerk Maiden and Aider men Avery, Mc Cabe, Little and Baker. In the absence of the mayor, President Robinson pre sided. B. F. Cheever was employed officially as pumpman, his salary being fixed at $75 per month. Treasurer C. H. Jennings reported the sunt of $2,349 on haird. Police Magistrate Jos. Reed's report showed that the sum of $171 had been collected during December in special fines. The action of the commi'tee in charge of the matter of purchasing a city hull was taken up, and the council approved the deal made for Ragles' hall. Tiie ordinance extending police juris diction to within three miles of the town was read for the second time. The ordinance regulating saloon licences was brought up for second read ing, but was referred hack to the com mittee, to be taken up at a special meet ing later on. The idea of the ordinance is to secure more revenue for the main tenance of the city government, the present license rate not being sufficient to pay the extra expense involved by the employment of an extra police offi cer. It is as yet uncertain what will be done in this matter, there having been talk of ruising the licenses of wholesale liquor dealers, while others seemed to favor raising the licenses of retail liquor dealers as well. There was even some talk of raising all licenses enougli to meet the extra expense. Ed Guy of tiie Kalispell Malting and Brewing Co. appeared before the coun cil and spoke upon the license proposi tion, stating that his company was will ing to abide by any decision which tiie council reached in the matter. Mr. Gav I also made a very sensible talk upon the saloon subject, giving tiie council to un j derstaud tiiat the brewing company, as ! well as tlie heller class of saloon men, discountenanced tb ■ allowing of saloons to run which were not conducted along respectable lines, as it tended to give a bud name to all connected with tiie business, whereas only a few are to blame for the evil tiiat people complain of. A committee from tlie fire department requesled the council to pass an or dinance for t.ie regulation of tiie depart ment, fixing a definite amount that would he paid, to the firemen while in attendance at fires. The matter was re ferred to the fire committee. The salary of the town clerk, which had been raised to $50 per month dur ing tiie water works construction period, was again tdaetd at $35 per month, the extra work in tiiat line being completed. from the great the to on area than lived has the tiie ting ed, are I F. TRAIN ROBBERS WANTED FREEDOM After the train robbers, McDonald and Smith, were turned over to tiie federal authorities at Kalispell, it was found that they were about ready to make an other attempt to esenpe. Tiie prisoners were playing out of luck in Flathead county jail, and were just about ready to make another attempt to Jail break when they were deported, says the Bee. Upon examination of tiie cage, after they hud been taken awav, it was found tiiat one of the bars was almost completely severed, and undoubtedly another effort was to have been made at the first opportunity to rush tiie guards mid esenpe to the hills. The jail officers searched thoroughly for tiie saw or file the work hud been done with, but were unsuccessful in finding all such contra band tools. The sheriff lost no time in acquainting tiie custodians of tiie pris oners of the fact that a steel cutter was concealed about one of the men. An extra man at night guard was em ployed at tiie jail when the notorious train robliers were added to the large family in durance vile. After the break McDonald and Frankhouser made last month tiie guards were doubled hotli night and day and every official connected with the jail was at high ten sion. The regular men who are now in charge are much relieved that their bad men were safely delivered to U. S. authorities. A small saw was found on one of the prisoners when scarciied at Helena. past off of logs ests rig in to L. BLANK BOOKS STATIONERY P. F. DODDS THE DRUGGIST FINE PERFUMES LATEST POST CARDS j GAME WILL ALWAYS BE < PLENTIFUL. -c _ Mr. and Mr*. Thus. Dawson came In from MidvAle Tuesday and are spending the week with friends here. Like a great many others in this part of the country, Mr. Dawson is interested in the bill pending in congress to create Glacier park, and desires to have the proposed boundaries changed so SB not to include agricultural lands, especially on the North fork of tiie Flathead. There it probably nut a man in the country who is more familiar with the area embraced in the proposed park than Mr. Dawson. For rears he has lived near this greut wonderland and has made many trips through its rugged fastnesses. He lnughs at the idea of the game ever being killed out of the regon, stating tiiat the nature of tiie country is. auch as to preclude the pos sibility of Jliis ever being done, Hiid consequently favors tiie plan to have tiie Btate game laws regulate tiie hunt ting and fishing if tiie park is created, instead of having these sports prohibit ed, as in the Yellowstone national park. Mr. Dawson stales tiiat elk and deer are increasing in numbers in the park country, and tiiat they are actually more plentiful today than they were twenty years ago. a A Higher Health Level.

CONTRACT FOR BRIDGE County Commissioners Accept Bid of $2,400 for a Bridge Across the Whitefish River. At a special session of the board of coonty comniitsioners Monday the con tract for building a bridge across the Whitefish river was let to the firm of Mead A Simmondsof Kalispell, who were the lowest bidders. The bid was for $2,400, which is quite a reduction from the lowest bid presented for the same work last fall. The new bridge is to be located about a half mile south of town, at a point where the river is narrow and the banks are high. The improvement will be of especial benefit to people coming into the town from the south, who at pres ent have to go a roundabout route and come into the town from tiie west. According to the terms of tiie contract the bridge is to bo completed by April 1. It is understood that a contract wax let by the commissioners on the came day to a Minneapolis firm for a bridge across the South fork of the Flathead, the price being something over $7,000. The supreme court of the United States has affirmed tiie decision in the case of the government against Henry Winters and others, tiie so-called Milk river case, involving the right to the use of the waters of tiiat stream. The decision means that all the ranch ers of the Milk river valley living be tween Havre and Malta will he deprived of the uses of the waters of the Milk river and they will be forced to either give up their farms, to depend upon the sparse rai nfall, or to wait until the St. Mary's irrigation project is finished. The government brought suit to secure the right to use of 5,000 inches of water, upon the grounds that the Indians had a prior right to tiie waters of the Milk river. The case was decided in favor of the government here by Judge Hunt; his decision was affirmed by the circuit court of appeals and now by the highest tri bunal in tiie land. District Attorney Rasch prosecuted the case. CASE DECIDED. WISE PROVISIONS. A recent communication addressed to Senator Carter on the subject of Gla ■ park, is a strong one from Mr. Wliipps. Concerning the boundaries Mr. Wliipps is satisfied with the recom mendations and lines presented liy Forest Supervisor Haynes. He recom mends, however, that a proviso be in cluded in the law permitting passing of railroads anywhere through the park, also submitting to state game regula tions.—Kalispell Bee.
