The committee of the socialist party met before daylight today and named a subcommittee of seven to learn the motive, if possible, of Sil verstein. None had ever heard of the bomb thrower and all regretted his act. The committee of inquiry was composed of Robert Hunter, Algernon Lee, editor of tha Work er; J. Wanhope, editor of Wilshire's Magazine; Moses Oppenheimer, a socialist writer, and Henry Slobo din, Thomas J. Lewis and Morris Hilquitt. The Neighborhood Workers' asso ciation, composed of all the charity and sociological organizations in the city, announced today that a bill had been prepared by the assocla tion for introduction in the legisla ture, providing for a commission to inquire into the condition of the un employed and making an appropria tion to carry out a project of relief. Inspector Schmittberger, who had charge of the handling of the crowds in Union square, tonight said: "I gave no clubbing orders to any of my mpes and I am positirve RoX of my mnounted men drew their clubs while scattering the eo That is a stry out fthf cloth. While I believe something ought to be done quickly to curb the anarchistic tendencies of some of these people, I do not and never did advocate the wholesale clubbing of innocent bystanders to effect the dispersal of crowds that collect." The body of Ignatz Hildebrand, the only person killed by the bomb explosion, was given to his wife and taken to Orange, N. J., for burial. Mrs. Hildebrand said that her hus band had been in this country 30 years; that he was a republican, and so far as she knew, always voted that ticket. The police did not make much headway today with Silverstein, who, though able to talk, would not discuss his act. He appeared indif ferent to his fate, anli when asked if he would see his two sisters, who had called at the hospital, replied: "I do not want to see them, and could not if I wanted to. They can see me if they wish." He exchanged a few words with one of the girls. From the sisters the police learned that Silverstein was about 19 years old. The broth er and sisters came to this country five years ago, adopting their moth er's maiden name. The elder girl added: "My brother was sickly and was always complaining of his station in life. He read socialistic papers and studied a great deal. At one time he was interested in chemistry. He often complained of pains in his head, I would be glad row if my brother would die. He has always been ill and has been a great worry to us." Three drivers arrested for refus ing yesterday to remove their tfucks from which attempts to speak were to have been made, were fined $1 each today.

Late tonight Alexander Berkman was found in his rooms in East Thir teenth street, When asked about the letters found in Silverstein's room he said: "I don't know how that fellow ob tained those letters. I have never heard of Silverstein, but it is possi ble that he may have got a few of my letters making arrangements to address groups in Brooklyn. If the police have any letters I invite their publication. There is nothing rabid or inflammatory in them." Replying to questions, he said: "Miss Goldman is at present in the west. She has nothing to do vith this thing. The meeting was run by the socialists and I was not invit ed to speak." Berkman denied that he was near Union Square park yesterday. FAIR BOARD INCORPORATED AT LAST On Monday last the Dawson County Fair Association held a meeting and prepared to file articles of incorpora tion, with a capital stock of $25,000. Shares will be sold at $10 each. The directors appointed for the first three months are Geo. McCone, E. J. Ber ry, G. D. Hollecker, R. L. Wyman, W. B. Foster, C. L. Rood, S. B. Chappell, S. M. Wills, Jas. Cava naugh, Chas. Thurston, Andrew Lar son, Harry Helms and T. F. Hagan. With this active board there can be no doubt of the great success of the fair of 1908. It was decided to hold this year's fair on Sept. 15th, 16th and 17th. Ow ing to the fact that the new grounds will probably not be completed in time the next fair will doubtless be held on the old grounds. (API. AMMUNDSEN COMING, APRIL 9th It may be of interest to many to know that an uncle of Knute Berven of Hodges designed and constructed the good sloop, Gjoa, which successfully took Capt. Roald Ammundsen through the Northwest Passage. Capt. Ammundsen will lecture here on April 9th, and after the lecture will attend a sexa to be given in his honor by his countrymen at the Home Res taurant. Knute Berven, who is some what of a designer and mechanic him self, has worked out for the occasion an exact reproduction of Gjoa in min iature, which will grace the banquet table. TO PRESERVE BISON The Chicago Examiner of March 29th has the following to say concern ing the bill recently introduced by Senator Dixon, which has for its ob ject the preservation of the bison: Through a bill recently introduced in Congress by Senator Joseph M. Dixon of Montana, the American Bi son Society has formally called upon the government to establish a national herd of bison on the Flathead Indian Reservation, in northwestern Mon tana. The society offers a nucleus herd as a gift, if Congress will pro vide the land for a range and fence it in. The recently issued annual report of the society shows that the plan has been very carefully thought out. A year ago the organization engaged Profeusor Morton J. Elrod of Missoula to spend the summer of 1907 in nrak *E; thbgroesmah bretigatic of th SCANDINAVIAN BROTHERHOOD Forms New Lodge for Diffusion of Ideals More Strictly American. Norden Lodge No. 13, Scandi navian Brotherhood of America, was organized Wednesday night at Miskimen Hall by Acting Grand President Paul S. Peterson of Hele na and Deputy Grand President Harold S. Swenson of Missoula. Twenty-one candidates were obli gated in the order and almost as many more have made application, so that the charter membership gives promise that the Scandinavian Brotherhood will become one of the strongest in Glendive. The lodge will meet the first and third Mon day evening in each month. Officers were elected as follows: president, Jens Rivenes; vice-president, A. P. Bertelsen; recording secretary, Ei nar Rivenes; financial secretary, Fred Jesson; treasurer, H. B. Nel son; chaplain, O. J. Stevens; con ductor, Geo. Walseth; inside guard, Andrew Larson; outside guard, C. J. Dannaweg; past president, Peter Nelson; trustees, Andrew Helland, David Leidahl and Erick Walseth. The Scandinavian Brotherhood of America was founded in Buttc, Montana about twenty years ago, and is a patriotic and fraternal so ciety carrying sick and death bene fits, but not life insurance. Among its objects is the study of American institutions, urging Scandinavians Flathead Reservation, which now is being thrown open to settlement, and recommend a site for a national bison range. Professor Elrod's report is printed in full in the society's annual 1 volume and upon it is based the plan now before Congress. Unfortunately the society came into existence just one year too late to prevent the sale and removal to Cana da of the great Pablo-Allard bison herd, which had grown up on the Flat head Reservation from thirty animals to a total today of 638 head, not count ing between 200 and 300 head, previ ously sold. The history of that herd, however, has amply demonstrated the fact that bison suitably located on the Flathead Reservation can live all the year round by grazing and with out :.ing fed on hay. The site proposed for the new na tional herd is situated immediately north of Ravalli, on the Northern Pa cific Railway, which is the station from which 398 bison were shipped to Canada last year. The ideal range de sired contains 20 square miles (12,800 acres) of ridges and hills, nearly all of it too steep for agriculture of any kind, and of no value to any one save as grazing lands. In the ravines and watercourses there is an abundance of water and sufficient timber to afford shelter for bison in the severest storms. The grazing grounds are abundant for the support of 1,000 bi son, without the necessity of feeding them. The proposed ideal range has a frontage of seven miles on the North ern Pacific Railway. Unfortunately the Indians will have, to be paid for any land that may be set aside for a bison range, probably at the rate of $1.25 per acre. To ac complish this purpose, and to provide for fencing, Congress is asked to ap propriate $30,000. If this is done the Bison Society will at once set about the task of raising funds for the pur chase of a herd of from fifteen to twenty bison, of pure blood, to present to the government for th. new nation al range. In comparison with the great sum that is being expended by Csa.a--.betw.f. 50,o000 and $200,OQO comring to this country to become citizens at the earliest possible time, and to qualify them for citizenship. The order now has lodges in the principal cities of Montana, as well as in Washington and Idaho, and is growing rapidly, the objects and principles appealing strongly to all Scandinavians. All the work and business of the order is transacted in the English language. Mr. Swenson, one of the organiz ers, is editor of the American Scan dinavian, which is published in the interests of the order and Scandi navians in this country generally. The paper is printed in the English language and is a strong advocate for a higher citizenship and closer relations between the people of the three Scandinavian countries in America. The patriotic tone and teachings of the publication are in strong contrast with papers publish ed in foreign languages in this coun try, instance "La Questione Soc iale," recently suppressed by the postal authorities for extolling as sassination as a virtue. Paul S. Peterson, grand president of the order, is proprietor of the Capital Cafe at Helena, and is well known to many of the leading peo ple of Glendive. -for the purchase, transportation and care of the Pablo herd, the sum now asked of Congress seems very small. In view of the object to be gained it is trivial. The American Bison Society is backed by a strong board of mana gers and there is reason to believe that it will make a very vigorous campaign in behalf of the proposed new herd. One of the most interesting feat ures of the society's annual report is the bison census, which was made by Dr. W. T. Hornaday and completed on January 1. Its summary shows the existence at this date of 1,722 pure blood American bison in captivity throughout the world, and 325 (esti mated) running wild. Of the latter 25 are credited to the Yellowstone Park and 300 to the region southwest of Great Slave Lake in Canada. In the United States there are 1,116 bison in captivity, of which 506 are males and 610 are females. Of this total 203 are calves that were born in 1907. Canada now contains 476 captive bison, of which 214 are males and 262 are fe males, 98 of the total being calves of the vintage of 1907. Europe contains 54 male and 76 female bison, of which 22 are calves of the past year. The grand totals for the world, of captive bison are 777 males and 948 females, and of these 323 were born last year. In 1903 there were living in captivi ty a total of 1,119 Ameri an bison. It thus appears that since 1903 the total net increase has been 603 head. If these bison were all owned by national or state governments thel future of the species would be far more secure than it now is with these animals in the hands of sixty-four different cwners. The temporary tenure of private own ership constitutes a great danger to the species and renders the establish ment of several national herds impera tively necessary. In advocating before Congress the establishment of the proposed national herd in northwestern Montana the American Bison Society desires the active assistance of all persons who are interested in the perpetual preser vation of what once was our most con spicuous and valuable American ani mal. The thing to do is to request sen ators and representatives to facilitate thd pausage of Senator Dixon's bill.
