Montana (sections 970-971, political
code) the governor and certain
other enumerated state officers are
prohibited from absenting them
selves from the state for more than
sixty consecutive days unless on
business of the state cr with the
consent of the legislative assembly.
"It may be that the legislature is
without authority to thus interfere
with the tenure of an office created
by the constitution. But if it is
competent to do so it is not improb
able that a plausible pretense might
be invoked to evade so stern a sta

prove in a particular case. But
whether the law is right or wrong,
wise or unwise, I have no disposition
to contest its plain provisions or de
feat its manifest meaning.
"It is not. however, without deep
regret that I surrender my commis

my associates who have been most
helpful to me in the transaction of
the public business.
"I am reminded at this time, and
may be pardoned for referring to
the fact, that my political life has
covered a wide range. Twice district
attorney, member of the legislature,
twice delegate to congress in terri

organic law of the state, and, with
the exception of eight years, gover

into the union. During my several

during the last quarter of a centu

political or otherwise--I find no
comfort except in pleasant retro

flourishing in this mountain land
where less than twenty years ago
local self-government was but a
dream. A capitol building of noble
proportions and superb appoint

Droceeds of a federal land grant
practically without cost to the state.
A soldiers' home, educational, chari

are among the monuments of genel

King Carlos and the Crown Prince of Portugal
Are Slain Without Warning. -- Second
Son Slightly Wounded in Melee.
Populace of Lisbon in a State of Terror Bordering on Frenzy. - -
Homes and Places of Business Barricaded. - - Dead
King Was Generally Popular.
Lisbon, Feb. 1.-King Carlos of
Portugal and Crown Prince Louis
1 hillipe were assassinated today and
- the city is in a state of uproar. The
king's second son, the Infant Manuel,
was slightly wounded, but Queen
Amelia, who strove to save the crown
prince's life by throwing herself upon
him, was unhurt.
A band of men waiting at the cor
ner of the Praco de Commercio and
the Rur de Arsenal suddenly sprang
- toward the open carriage in which the
- royal family was driving to the
- palace and, leveling carbines, which
they had concealed upon them, fired.
The king and crown prince, upon
whom the attack was directed, were
each shot three times and they lived
only long enough to be carried to the
marine arsenal near by, where they ex
pired. Almost at the first shot the
king fell back on the cushions dying
and at the same moment the crown
prince ,as seen to half rise and then
sink Iack on the seat. Queen Ame
lie jumped up and threw herself toward
the crown prince, in an apparent ef
fort to save his life at the cost of her
own, but the prince already had re
ceived his death wonnd. The police
guard fired upon the assassins and kill
ed three of them.
The royal family was returning from
Villa Vicesa, where it had been so
journing, and was on the way from the
railroad station to the palace.
A strong guard was in attendance
because of the recent uprising in the
city and th: discovery of a plot to as
sassinate Premier Franco and over
throw the monarchy. But the band
of murderers had selected the most ad
vantageous spot for the commission of
their crime, for they were concealed
from the eyes of the party until the
vehicle had come into tho Praco de
Commercio, a large square. Before
any of the guards were aware of what
was happening the assassins leaped to
the carriage and instantly a fusillade
of shots rang out. In a moment all
was terrible confusion the king and
crown prince being shot down without
the slightest chance to save themselv
es. Police guards sprang upon the
rcgici.'1s, the number of whom is
s_rrewhat un,~clain, and killed three
of them and captured three others.
One of these committed suicide after
being placed in prison. it is charged
I desire to call your special atten
tion to the reportl of absence and tar
diness in the grades in which you may
have children. As a whole, these re
ports are not satisfactory. Can you
help us to improve them? The habits
of punctuality and regularity in at
tendance are in themselves worthy of
any effort that may be necessary tc
secure them. They often make a suc
cessful man or woman of one who oth
erwise would have proved a failure.
The student who is a little late t&
school is very likely to be a little late
in everything he undertakes, and the
pupil who is absent from school loseE
not only the work of the day during
which he is absent but, because of the
loss that day of facts and principles
upon which his succeeding work de
pends, his tasks soon become uninte
that one of the murderers was a
The bodies of the king and crown
prince were removed from the marine
arsenal in two closed carriages to the
royal palace, the late residence of the
king, escorted by municipal guards,
mounted. An examination of the
wounds of the king, who was dead
when he reached the arsenal, showed
that three bullets had found their
mark. One wound was situated at
the nape of the neck, a second in the
shoulder, and the third, which was
the fatal wound severed the carotoid
artery. The crown prince, who was
still breathing but who died almost
immediately after admission to
the arsenal, had suffered three wounds
in the head and chest. Two bullets
had struck Prince Manual.
Queen Marie Pia, the mother of
King Carlos, the Duke of Oporto, his
brother, a number of ministers and
court officers hastened to the arsenal
when the news reached them of the
attack upon the royal family.
The news of the murder swept
through the city like wildfire, and to
night half the populace is panic-strick
en, not knowing where the next blow
may fall. There is the greatest dread
for the future of the country, which
seems on the verge of being plunged
into the awful throes of a revolution,
with all the attendant horrors and
bloodshed. Throughout the city con
sternation feigns, and all the houses
and business places are barricaded.
The cold-blooded murder has sent a
thrill of horror through the country,
even among those who have been work
ing politically for the establishment
of a republic, and sorrow is expressed
on every hand at the dreadful end of
the king and the crown prince.
At the first blush it would seem as
thougi he assassination was the work
of anarchists and not of republicans.
Nevertheless, the stirring events of
tbe last few weeks have prepared the
people for some startling culmination.
The discovery of plot after plot, as
well the discovery of many secret
stores of arms and ammunition, had
shown beyond peradventure the exist
ence of a determination on the part of
a large body of the Portuguese to
overthrow the present conditions and
proclaim a republic.

result is failure ii his work and a dis

All people interested in the schools
are cordially invited to visit them as
often as possible. Frequent visits, es
pecially when unexpected by the chil

cards should always receive very care

not visit the schools. It will answer
the following questions for you : First,
in what study or studies is the pupil
