We have just re,
ceived an elegant as
sortment of import
ed English Macintosh
coats, with or without
capes. Also a com
plete line of American
manufacture, including
the finest grades of
Gossamer rubber goods
that can be depended
upon to completely
shed water.
This coat is made lC
for teamsters, riders or
any one who drives.
It is made with a com- g
bination pant attach- '
ed that can behuttened1
closely around the legs, l
thus preventing them
from getting wet while
driving. This coat is
made from pure gum
and will last a, man a to
life time. It is beyond a
the best thing in the
shape of a rubber coat
for ranchers, stock and
sheep imen or teamsters
in the market.

Dr. Moanian Given Explanations on the
The grand jury having returned in
dictments against Dr. Monahan and Dr.
Weitman forapracticing medicine without
a state medical certificate. A TRIauxt
reporter sought today the particulars
among the parties concerned. Dr. Mona- 1
han says that when he came here last
November he received a temporary certi
cate from Dr. Crutcher, the secretary of
the medical board, authorizing him to
practice until the board met in April. Dr.
Crutcher promised to notify him of the
meeting. The letter which Dr. Crutcher
sent with such notice was missent to
Helena and remained there 80 days.
Measntime the board had met nnd ad
journed. Dr. Monahan says that Dr.
Crutcher assured him that no action
would be taken by him before the next
meeting of the board. He received that
assurance on asking for a renewal of the
temporary certiticate. He says that he
holdsa diploma trom theim University of
Minnesota which is a medical school of
high standing. His diploma has been
recognized in both New York and Eu
rope. He considers that the present In
dictment is based solely upon technical
grounds and is in conflict with the letter
and spirit of the medical law of Mon
tens. He holds that the issue of the
temporary certificate shows that he has
all the qualifications needed for practice
in Montana.
Dr. Crutcher was seen on the subject
of the indictments. He said that he
would prefer to make no statement until
the matter comes before the court, when
he is.confident that his course which has
been dictated solely by public grounds,
will be vindicated.
