;' A LAW THAT COUNTS. 1
They ave an anti-gambling' law up
In Xitontana that counts for something.
Moreover the1 law has stood the consti
tutional tests In the courts, and it ap
pears to have become. the settled fact
that its rigor will be na bar to its ob
servance and enforcement. .
Like antf-gambllng ; enactment In
rrmny other states-.'thls one In Montana
gives the loser at the game right to
stie ,fi" therestltutlon of .his money;
but thrf 'Montana law. extends that
right to dependent wives and children,
and put the Montana gambler up
against a different game than he ha
ever played before,. This third-party
Ight to sue is. b. complexity In legal
restrictions that makes it extremely
difficult -for the professional gambler
to continue In business .' and reckon
upon the value of his assets from day
Tills feature of the law has, already
been invoked. A man at Fort Benton
got Into a game with two others and
lost 6CM). The loser was not disposed
to welch; but he was married, and hit
wife considered, that his family needed
that money, She brought suit for it,
aad for $1000 exemplary damages,
which the law permits. She got judg
ment for the whole amount. The twit
ter went to the supreme court, and
the Judgment was affirmed.
For drastid' legislation that Is ef
fective, this Montana act seems to
have eevry requirement. It Is an act
that will admirably suit in any state.
In the double action feature and the
additional right to collect damages
over and above the amount Involved
In play, it Is a law that-simply puis

E. D. Selder this morning suffered
a very painful accident while freezing
cream at his candy store. But for the
fact that the gasoline engine which
customarily propels the freezer was
out of order, his hund would have
been ground to bits. As it was, the
thumb, first and second fingers of the
left hand were, badly lacerated, the
knuckles bruised and the fleshy part
of his hand torn in severat places.
With the motive power disabled, he
and Mr. Harvey, his assistant, were re
volving the freezer by hand, when in
brushing away a foreign article from
the cogs, the canvas glove on his left
hand was caught and the member
pulled Into the gears. Mr. Harvey
stopped the machine and reversed the
machine sufficiently to free the hand.
The ends of the fingers and one thumb
are crushed, but It Is not likely that
amputation will .become necessary.
For several weeks, at least, the candy
maker will have to desist from further
work. r i.
