BY GEORGE K. AIKEN.
HELENA, Mont.. July 10. (Spe
cial.) With the fight in North Da
kota over for the present, interest in
the Non-Partisan league's efforts for
the time being centers in Montana.
Hero the struggle presents a dif
ferent angle than that shown in the
native state of the league. Mining
and stock raising, not wheat farming
and socialism, are the principal in
dustries of Montana. This being
irue, me league is xorcea 10 mane. a
different appeal, and to capture, not
the republican party as was the case
in North Dakota, but the democratic
party, which is at present in the
ascendancy in Montana.
Here, too, is found a situation that
naturally complicates matters for an
agrarian - organization, such as the
league represents itself to be to its
North Dakota followers. Montana is
the home of the Butte miners' union,
one of the strongest and most radical
of labor organizations. It has. too.
the Montana Federation of Labor, as
a strong factor in the politics of the
btate. and it is making its principal
appeal, not to the farmers of the
state, but to the organized miners and
Radical Law Proposed.
This appeal has taken form in an
attempt to repeal the present work
men's compensation law and substi
tute therefor a law which for social
istic scope is not equaled in America.
This law, while it has many; of the
basic features of both the Oregon and
Washington laws, so far outstrips
them in awards and drastic provisions
as to make them .seem almost re
actionary. During the last week 3500 ranchers
whose names were secured to the in
itiative petition for this measure,
have withdrawn their signatures and
it is believed that the. measure can
thus be blocked.
While the business men of Mon
tana, like those of Oregon and Wash
ington, have been asleep to the dan
ger . which confronts them through
the advent of the Non-Partisan
league, they are thoroughly aroused
now. They have a real organization,
not a hit or miss association, such as
carried on the fight against the
league in Minnesota
- League Opponent Organize.
Here in Montana they have done
what the people of every northwest
ern state must do If it does not want
the Non-Partlsan league brand of so
cialism fastened upon it. They have
organized. In 70 per cent of the pre
cincts of the state the Montana
Loyalty league has a precinct com
mitteeman. They have members of
the league In every precinct getting
before the voters the result of the
league's programme in -North Dakota
They are printing a weekly news
paper that gets into the hands of the
voters with the arguments of the
That is a most important factor.
The lack cf such a paper is the prin
cipal cause of the league's continued
dominance in North Dakota. ,
Panera Are Stifled. '
So successful has been the league in
stifling the opposition papers in North
Dakota, so persistently have the
league papers branded all the oppo
sition papers as "liars" that the truth
cannot be told them, or if told to
league members has no force or effect.
On the other hand, no matter , what
appears in the columns of the Non
partisan league papers it is accepted
as the truth.
While the Non-Partisan league
plans have not been fully revealed in
Montana, the opposition will be ready
to meet them. If necessary, plans are
being prepared now to consolidate the
republican and democratic party sup
port upon one ticket -for state offices
and on county and legislative offices,
This, with 'the deflection of the
Montana farmers from the Butte rad
ical labor programme, is counted upon
as certain to win in Montana this

light at the inquest over the body of

starting out in the morning Clyde
Lillie was inclined to turn back and
abandon the trip and explained he had
dreamed the night before he had
killed a man. This was a surprising
statement to Albert, who said he had
dreamed the same thing. Thereupon
iney discussed the seeming warning
and concluded to return home, but
later reconsidered, as they did not
wish to be swayed by superstition.

DEATH INQUIRY DELAYED
HEALTH BUREAU PROBES
CASE OF KELLER 1VFAXTS.
City Physician Expresses Opinion
That Infected Milk Was Not
Investigation by the city health
bureau into the deaths of George and
Marie Keller, infant son and daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. G. Y. Keller. 316 East
Seventy-sixth street north, was yes
terday continued until tomorrow aft
ernoon, owing to the departure of
Mr. and Mrs. Keller from the city
Immediately following the double fu
neral Friday afternoon. The official
death certificates gave acidosis as the
cause of death.
It is the intention of Dr. George
Parish of the health bureau to ascer
tain the symptoms exhibited by the
children and thus arrive at the prob
able cause of their death.
. "I do not believe," said Dr. Parrlsh
yesterday, "that the death of either
of the children was 'due to infected
milk, as the milk supply of the city
is tested several times weekly and
thus far has always been as nearly
pure as possible. The city health of
flee, however, can do nothing more
than make a thorough investigation
of the matter and thus establish the
cause of death. Acidosis is usually
merely a condition which attends
death and is rarely the actual cause
of -death." '
The Keller children died within six
days of each other, the little girl.
Marie, dying on the day first set for
her infant brother's funeral.
