What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Y., January 2.—The state senate was organized yesterday by the 'election of J. Stoat Fassett, secretary of the republican national committee, to the presidency pro. tem. Fremont , Cole was elected speaker 'at the assembly. The in- auguration of Gov. Hill was conducted wail, much circumstance and display. Wh!le reading kis_ annual message the governor created some sensation when he employed these wards: 'CBE NECESSITY OF SOME CHANGE our election laws, whereby the recur- . , ring corruption, which has become inci- dent to our elections has become impera- tive. Ii is believed the last presidential 'electiOn was the Most corrupt of any in the history of the United States, so far as the diret use of money(is 'Concerned -in intinencing electors,7 and public senti- ment is naturally awakened to the desire- ' I,ilt of some relief. The peculiar causes which induced this immense corruptiofl. are apparent. Anxiety to subserve sEI,FIsH AND PRIVATE ADVANTAGE rather than the general interest of the - public naturally fed to the carnpaign be- ing conducted on biisiness principles,. whereby it • is asserted electors were, bought and sold like goods and chattels : in the open market. It is claimed that at feast $100,000 were expended in the .sixteenth and twenty-fourth congression- aldisteicts in this state in efforts made there to elect congressman and to secure the electors believed to be favorable to the policy of fostering private interests. So successful have been the recent efforts at corupfing the. ballot, that good citi- zens are led to doubt whether the free seatiments of the people may not contin- ue to be nullified by corruption whenever' it appears the interests of the people con- flict with those interested in monopolies, who, PROFLIGATE OF THEIR MONEY, are intent upon resisting all interference with their selfish demands. Gov. Hill recommends that by joint resolution the legislature urge congress to adopt consti- tutional amendments regarding the presi- dential term, and a provision for ex -presi- dents. Gov. Hill's recommendations are: First, that the term of office of presidents and vice presidents be six years; second, that the president shall be ineligible for re-election; third, that the president shall immediately, upon the expiration of his term, become a member of the United • States senate for life, and receive an ap- propriate salary. This amendment shall apply to all living ex -presidents. MONTANA VISION LUCK. - Two Trains Teleslope land Fourteen • Deit royed. BUTTE, January 2. ---The unfortunate Montana Union road had a serious acci- dent near William's wood camp this morning, when two trains were telescoped, demolishing two locomotives and destroy- ing ',fourteen freight cars. No one was injured. According to a statement of an engineer, the accident was due to the de- fectiveness of the air brakes. Engineer Shutter was running a north bound train of twenty-six Montana Central cars, load ed with cord wood. When in, Silver Bow canyon, about fourteen miles from here, the train ran and slipped along the icy rails with great rapidity. so that it , be- came unmanageable. The engineer ap- plied the air brakes, which would not, check the train before it arrived at the switch at Williams' station. Engineer : Shutter realized the situation AND JUMPED OFF, as did the brakeman and conductor; also ! the engineer and men on the opposite train. Just as the Butte bound engine was switching off the north bound train ran into and telescoped both trains, pil- ing the cars on top of each other in a promiscuous mariner. One of the engines domolished belonged to the Union Pacific. Supt. Dickinson left for the scene soon af- ter on a wrecking train. The blockade greatly impeded trains from moving in all directions, and traffic, particularly for Passengers. has been wretched all day. The wreck was cleared about 6 o'clock to- night. The passengers on the morning Helena express arrived at about 11 o'clock to -night in the caboose. Notwithstanding „..this disaster, trains for Anaconda are be- I , . ing rapidly moved. A train containing 35 cars of ore was received at the smelter at about i i ielf-past twelve o'clock to -night. Work has been resumed in the upper ; works smelter. dates for the Speakership. WAsarNoTos,December 31.-- Clerk Clark of the house of representatives,. has re- veivecf the certificates of 250 members - elect to the next house, and has been of- ficially informed that certificates have been issued to all but three congressional districts. b se. i the certificates issued, 16:3 are to republicans and 159 to demo- crats. and of those districts still in doubt, two of them are in West Virginia and one in Tennessee. In all of them the repub- i.can candidates claim majorities on the Fort Benton, Montana, Wednesday, January 9, 1889. face of the returns. However, should the democratic candidates get the certificates, their party will not have control, as the republicans will still have a majority of one. The question is whether it will be one or seven. The candidacy for the speakership is becoming more heated ev- ery day. Of the 163 republicans who have received certificates of election, it is said that Mr. Cannon has 49 pledged to vote for him, Mr. Reed 38, Mr/ McKinley , '.3 and Mr. Burrows '22. There are 16 un- I pledged southern members. The other I 15 membenii_are scattered among pros- p4Ative candidates. SENATORIAL CLATTER. Nominations for Senators. In Colorado, Michigan and Maine. DENVER, January 2. --The seventh eral asNiembly of the state of Colorado convened at noon today. Hon. H. II. Eddy was chosen speaker of the house, and M. B. Carpenter president pro tern of the senate. Both houses then adjourned until' to -morrow. The republioan mem- bers held a senatorial caucus to -night to decide who would be the next United Stated senator to succeed Senator Thos. Bowen. The caucus adjoorned at 9:30. The first ballot resulted as follows: E. W.. Wolcott., 45; Thos. M. Bowen, 15; H. A. W. Tabor, 1. The legislature will meet in joint SOSIII011 to formally choose the senator on the 15th inst. The nomina- tieh of Walcott is considered a great tri- umph for the young republicans of the state, as he is . but 40 years of age. lie was fought bitterly by a combination composed of ex -Senator Tabor, ex -Gov- ernor Evans, Senator Bowen, Congress- man Symes, Dr. Moore and Judge Elbert. In the fight, however, Mr. Wolcott had the friendship of Senator Henry M. Teller. LANSING, Mich., January 2.—The legis- lature of 1889 convened to -day. At a re- publican caucus to -night, James McMil- lan, of Detroit, was nominated by accla- mation to succeed Senator Palmer. AuotsTA, Me., January 2.—The joint republican caucus to -night re -nominated Hon. W. P. Frye for senator by acclama- tion. Kilrain and Mitchell The Exponents of the Delsartean Movement In St. Louis. ST. Lours, December 31.—The Kilrain- Mitchell exponents of the Delsartean movement arrived in St. Lonis to-day,and trill give an exhibition of their skill as boxers at the natatorium to -morrow night ! under the auspices of Prof. Billy Clark, itbe Belfast 4 hicken. Kilrain and Mitch- ell kept closely to their rooms at the Cant 'Southern during the day and Parson Da- vies did the talking for them. The par- son stated that a letter had been for- warded to -night to Kilrain's New York backer to the effect that he would meet the Sullivan party in Buffalo, N. Y., Jan. 7, and the parson stated the match will be closed within ten days or the party WHO REFUsES TO FIGHT will be shown up. Mr. Davies claimed that Kilrain was not only willing but anxious to meeet Sullivan and would agree to anything in reason to bring about the match. As to Jackson, the Australian wonder, he did not see money or glory in a meeting with the black. There was nothing to win and everything to lose. The parson thought McAuliffe had been overestimated. Bill I3radburn defeated Glover in nine rounds. It took McAuliffe forty-nine to best him. His defeat of Conley - was a chance blow. Kil- rain and Mitchell think they have been misrepresented and that adverse com- ments is the cause of their shabby treat- ment everywhere they go. A FIGHT TO THE DEATH. Two Families of Brothers anti Sisters En- gage in a Deadly Combat. ABERDEEN, Dak., January 3.—This evening near Fentress, Frank and James Colman quarreled with Charles and Wm. Delay about the possession of a farm. The quarrel ended in a battle between the parties with double-barrelled shot Iguns, in which Frank Colman and Chas. Delay were instantly killed. After the guns were emptied the survivors engaged each other in a hand-to-hand conflict, in which Jas. Colman was badly wounded in the bead and Wm. Delay badly wounded in the thigh. Two sisters of the Delays, who appeared on the scene during the melee, were also wounded. All were prominent citizens. Flooring Mills to 6 lose Down. ST. LOUIS, January& - All flouring mills in this city excepting one closed down to -day under an agreement entered into by the Millers' association at the late con- vention at , Milwaskee. The exception is the Anchor mill, which will also shut down as soon as it fills two or three im- portant orders on hand. Under the agreement noted 250 thins in the fall wheat belt will either shut down or run on half time during January. THE COMING CONTESTS. Sore -headed Republicans Who Will Steal a Seat In Congress. WASHINGTON, December 30.—Up to this time only one notice of contest has been filed in the office of the clerk of tn. house. This is the case of Hartsuff,, against Whiting, the latter being the sit- ; ting democratic member of the seventh Michigan district. There are twenty-one counts in his indictment, and he charges' ! that votes were cast at 'Wrong places; that aliens voted without restraint; that ! fraudulent naturalization papers were is- sued; that illegal registration was corn-; mon, and that persons were compelled to vote the democratic ticket under threats of Personal injury. Mr. Hartsuff lays particular stress upon whilthe calls ' gen- 1 , • THE \CORRUPTION FUND.\ .1 This includes a contribution of $2,500 from the national democratic committee; $1,000 given by Mr. Whiting personally, and between $2,800 and $3,()00 assessed the federal employes. The latter Mr. Hartsuff claims, were particularly per- nicious in their efforts in Mr. Whiting's behalf. Quite a number of the cases arise out of the narrow majorities receiv- ed by the successful candidates. Such is the foundation of the contest made by Sydney E. Mudd against Representative Barnes Compton, of the Fifth Maryland district, whose majority has been plaoed as low as one vote. In the fourth New Jersey district Samuel Fowler (dem.) was elected by only seventy-two votes, and N. W. Voorhees will try to overcome this by contest. Congressman Snively, of Indi- ana, was returned by a still smaller ma jority -less than forty votes—and Wm. A. Hoyne, his republican rival, will endeavor to secure the seat. A HERCULEAN TASK. As compared with these efforts to over - torn a few votes, the contest of T. B. Ea- ton, a republican of Memphis, Tenn., to oust Congressman James Phelan, seems quite Herculean. Mr. Phelan received 8,000 majority. Charges of fraud will also be made by F. B. Posey, a republican, who was defeated by William F. Parret in the first Indiana district. For the first time in many years a contested election case is reported from Connecticut, where in the fourth district Edward R. Seymour, dem. ocrat, will endeavor to unseat Fred Miles..republican. Wm. Elliott, of Beau- fort. S. C., brother of an Episcopal clergy- man here, who had a contested case on his hands this congress is again to expe- rience the same trouble. Other cases which will excite interest are those of T. G. Phelps, republican, against Thomas J. Clunie, democrat, in the fifth California district, and Jehu Baker, who defeated \Bill\ Morrison, and who has in turn suc- cumbed to W. S. Forman. Judge Wad- dil, of Richmond, Va., will contest with George D. Wise the honor of representing the third Virginia district. He charges fraud and illegal voting. This long list of cases does not include the West Virginia districts, which are almost certain to be contested. HEYFRON WINS. The Contest Over the Missoula Comity Sher- iffalty Decided. MissouLA, January 3. —The Heyfron- Mahoney eontest, which has been on trial here for the peat week, was closed this evening. Judge DeWolfe rendered a lengthy oral opinion in the case, in which he admitted six votes at the Noxon pre- cinct for D. J. Heyfron, also threw out the Evaro precinct altogether on account of the polls being changed from the des- ignated place to a distance of more than three miles, and also threw out sixty votes proved to be illegal at the Bonner pre- cinct. This elects Daniel J. Heyfron by twelve majority over his opponent, who was declared elected by a majority of for- ty-six. The expression, \the Bonner re- turns are still coming in,\ may be heard on every corner. Mr. Heyfron is a staunch democrat, and his friends admire him for his tenacity. The case was bitterly fought by both parties. Messrs. Woody and Webster and S. G. Murray appeared for Mahoney, and J. C. Robinson, of neer Lodge, R. B. Smith, of Dillon, and John M. Evans, of Missoula, for Heyfron. Springer' New Bills. WASHINGTON, January 3.—In the house to -day Springer introduced a bill for the admission of Arizona and Idaho. He also introduced a joint resolution proposing a constitutional amendment relative to the election of the president and vice president and representatives in congress. It extends the presidential term to six years and makes him ineligible for re- election. It abolisiles the electoral col- lege and provides for a direct vote by the people. About the Eclipse. SAN FRANCISCO, January 3.—Further re- ports of the eclipse have been received. The party of observers from Carelton col- lege. Northfield, Minn., consisting of Pro fessors Payne, Pearson and Wilson, were loeated on an open plot on the famous I ranch of Gen. John Bidwell. The party I used a six inch photograph telescope and r photographic apparatus and a two inch °pith telescope. Profs. Wilson and Pearso exposed nine plates during the period • totality, and six between the first an last contact observation. Sketches oft e corona were made by Profs. Wilson and ayne and Surveyor Brown. Four long streamers were seen from prominence, and the chronosphere was strong for a full quadrant distance of the west side of the sun. Northern and southern limbs of the sun showed a great number of fine radiating flaments. THE HAY TIAN MATTER. Dire Threats Issued Against All Americans On the Island. NEW YORK, January 3.—A special to the Mail and Express from Port au Prince, dated December 31st, says: Arti- cles in Haytian newspapers contain fu- rious threats against Mr. Thompson, min- ister of the United States to Hayti. Many Americans have been arrested, both men and women. The American consulate is filled with refugees. Hypholite's army is marching on the city. I interviewed Leg- etime to -day and he said he would show no clemency to foreigners who interfere in Haytian politics. Legetime stated to me that he would shoot 500 if necessary. The excitement here is intense. Ameri- cans at Port au Prince are in danger of their lives. NEGROES KILLED. Participants In the Recent Mississippi Mas- sacre Hunted and Slain. ST. Louis, January 3. ---The evening pa- per has a special from Wahalak, Miss., to the effect that it is reported there that three bands of five men each, who have been hunting in the mountaino for ne- groes concerned in the recent massacre here, killed four of them named Cheatain, Wilder, 3Iaury and Stennis. Cheatain was @hot in his own yard while begging for his life; Maury, in his cotton gin, while conversing with the vigilants; Wild- er, who was a union soldier and fought with Grant at Vicksburg, on the road to Walialak. Wilder's body was buried in a shallow hole and stones piled upon the dirt. Stennis was found hiding in an abandoned house, where he had been nearly two weeks. He tried to defend himself with an axe, and was shot three times before he fell. The merchants are protesting against the continuation of the outrages. TA TA, MITCHELL. The Great Bluffer Runs Away From Demp- sey's Challenge. WASHINGTON, January 3. All possibili ty of a fight between Dempsey and Mitch- ell was set at rest to day by the receipt of a letter by Dempsey from New York stat- ing that Mitchell intended to leave the country in a short time. - , A fight between Frank Murphy, 'of England, who .claims (the feather -weight championship of the world, and Jimmy Fagan, of this city, came off at the . Stock Range. As the men squared it was ap- parent that Murphy was the heavier and was'fit l while Fagan looked drawn. For the first five rounds Fagan had the best of the fight, but the pace began to tell on him, after which Murphy had the best of the contest. In the tenth round Fagan began to do some telling work, when time was called and the referee awarded the fight to Murphy. The spectators were di- vided in opinion as to who won the. fight. Neither contestant was severely pun- ished. LABOR TROUBLES. A Fatal Riot in Which One Man Was Killed and a Number Terribly Beaten. SEATTLE, W. 'I'. January 5.—The trouble which has been brewing in the Newcastle mine some time culminated yesterday in a riot in which one man, Wm. Ruston, was killed. The difficulty arose out of the employment of a man named Boyle, who the Knights of Labor claimed ,had no right in the place. Wednesday morn- ing they refused to go to woric and posted notices saying there would be no more work in the Newcastle mine. Members of the Miners' Union, however, who greatly outnumber the Knights, continued at work, and Thursday night a large force of Knights came over from Gilman and Mc- Allister for the purpose of cleaning out the camp. They marched through New- castle, went up to the mine, assaulted and terribly beat a number of miners, and then returned to Newcastle. At the depot they attacked J. L, Hughes, presi- dent of the union, and Ralf Leowley. Young Llewellyn Jones rushed out of his house with a gun and ran into the crowd. He was knocked down and Ruston tried to shoot him. After he got up some one tired a shet and Ruston was struck in the abdomen. A general fusilade followed, but the crowd scattered and no one was hurt. Ruston was carried to a house and expired in fifteen minutes. The rioters dispersed immediately after the shooting. SPRINGER INTERVIEWED. What He Says About the Admission of the Territories—Outlook For the Ok- lahoma Bill. Washington special:, NI yet ing Mr Springer, of Illinois, chairman of the house committee on territories, I asked him what was the condition of the terri- torial bill. \The bill to provide enabling acts for Dakota (one state or two, as -,the people there may decide), Montana, Washington and New Mexico, will be called tip in the house, Tuesday, JaLuary 15.\ he replied, \and I think it will be passed on that da or the day following. I hope the name will be changed, so that instead of North Dakota and South Dakota we may have Dakota and Winona, and instead of Wash- ington and New Mexico, we may have Ta- koma and Montezuma. This would de- pene upon the action of the house. The bill provides for elections in ell., of these territories for delegates to constitutional conventions in May next, for the conven- tions to assemble in July and for a vote on the constitutions in October next. The states can be admitted into the union immediately on the assembling of congress in December next. Five states would give us ten new senators and prob- ably six new members of the house.\ A NEW TERRITORY IN VIEW. There is a rapidly growing sentiment in the east in favor of what is known as the Oklahoma bill. That is the bill to create and throw open to settlement the pro- posed new territory of Oklahoma. The western half of the Indian territory,which will form the principal portion of Oklaho- ma, is described 'as a land of rare promise. The climate is equable and not upli.ke that of southern California. The soil is rich and virgin. It is well 4tered and is equally adapted to the raising of the hardy cereals and fruit of the north, or the cotton, sugar and other products of the south. Ex -army officers, solid business men, ambitious politicians, young men imbued with the spirit of travel and adventure, and even young sprigs of society whose fortunes are yet to be made are surpris- ingly interested in the passage of the bill. The widespread impression that the new territory will have a population of 300,000 within ninety days after its formation jus- tifies the belief that great 'fortunes may be rapidly accumulated there. I asked Mr. Springer whether he real- ized how general the interest was regard.- ing the bill. He replied that he did, and then added that his committee room was daily flooded with letters and petitions bearing upon the subject from every sec- tion of the country. . OUTLOOK FOR THE OKLAHOMA BILL. In reply to my question in regard to the condition of the bill, Mr. Springer said: \It is the unfinished 'business in the com- mittee of the whole on . the state of the union, and has precedence of all other business in that committee except appro- priation bills and revenue bills. It is al- po the first business in 'order on suspen- sion days, and a motion is now pending to suspend the rules and pass the bill. This motion wilt be the regular order on Monday., January 7, and on 'the third Mondays and first Mondays of each month, and on .the six days before ad- journment.\. \Is there a majority in the house in fa- vor of the bill?\ \There is a large mujority in its favor. On all test votes heretofore had from three -fourths to eight -tenths of the mem- bers voting in its favor.\ \Who are opposing it, and why?\ \The principal opponents of the bill in the house are Messrs. Hooker, Barnes, Payson and Baker, of New York; but a few other members have at times indi- cated opposition to it. What their mo- tives are I have no right to assume, ex- cept from what they state or have stated in debate. Messrs. Hooker, Barnes and Baker state that the bill does not suffi- ciently protect the rights of Indians. Mr. Payson opposes it because the lands can only be taken by puying 81.25 per acre and in other respects conforming to tte homestead law. He insists first that the government should pay the Indians $1.25 per acre and give the lands to actual set- tlers under the homestead law, and fail- ing in this amendment that soldiers of the late war should be permitted to take the land under the homestead law with- out paying the $1.25 per acre, the govern- ment to pay the Indians and let the sol- diers have it for nothing. FRIENDS OF THE BILL. \Gen. Warner, of Missouri, who is com- mander in-chief of the Grand Army of the itapublic, and a member of the house from the Kansas City district; Gen. Wea- ver, of Iowa, and other friends of the bill oppose Payson's amendments, and a large majority of the house are opposed to them. In all other cases where the gov- ernment has purchased Indian reserva- tions the settlers, whether citizens or sol- diers, have been required to pay whatever amount was required to extinguish the Indian title. \The opposition outside of congress to the Oklahoma bill comes from the cattle No. 11. syndicates—the Cherokee Strip Live Stock association and others --who have a lease on six million acres of land known as the Cherokee Outlet. The first lease, which was for $100,000 a year for five years, expired the first (4 October last. It has been renewed at $1:00,000 a year for five years. It is understood that the Cherokee Strip company sublets to nu- merous firms and corporations for an ag- gregate rental of $500,000 a year. About 200,000 head of cattle are pastured on these lands. The owners of these cattle and their friends desire these lands for cattle pastures; the people desire them for homes. The people will triumph in, the end. How soon remains to be seen.\ IT MAI PASS THIS SESAION. • • \Will the bill get through this ses- sion?\ \I think it will. It will certainly pass the house.\ \What is the sentiment regarding it in the senate?\ . \I have not canvassed the senate thor- oughly on the subject, but I know a num- ber of the senators are in favor of it.\ \It is said that the friends of the meas- ure threaten to oppose the passage of all bills until the Oklahoma matter shall have been brought to a vote. Is this true?\ \I do not know that any threats have been made. It would not be strange, however, if the friends of the bill should conclude to treat other measures in the same manner that the Oklahoma bill has been treated. In all my legislative ex- perience I have never known a measure that has been fought with the same amount of obstructive tactics that have been resorted to defeat this bill.\ • THE ANACONDA RESUMES. Ore Being Delivered as wanted—Butte's SR- verShipmeuts. . -- F — Btri-rE, January 5.—The entire plant at the Smelter City is now in operation. The Montana Union is running from 2,500 to 2,800 tons of ore daily to the works, as well as plenty of fuel, and unless some onforseen calamity occurs the great plant will continue in uninterrupted operation for a long time to come. , During the year just closed Butte pro- duced in the aggregate $7,000,000. Dur- ing the week just ended five quartz mills, The Alice, Bluebird, Butte, Boston. Moulton and Lexington have shipped sil- ver bars by express, aggregating $234,336, the biggest shipment for a single week in the history of the camp. A DUEL TO THE DEATH. Lovers Fight and Die About Their Greaser Sweetheart. ANAGuitiTex., January 3.—Charles De LaGraze 'and Jesus Barbo, between whom bad blood had existed for some time, met yesterday. r i rhey immediately opened 1 fire on each other from horseback, but dis- mounting after a few shots, advanced on foot, Bring at each other. De LeGtaze first used a Winchester and afterward a pistol. De LaGraze was shot through the back, receiving also one shot througb. the stomach. Barbo was shot through both thighs; one finger was blown off,and he was shot through the body above the heart. Pe LaGraze was dead, when wit- nesses got there, but Barbo lived for an hour. The men had fallen within six feet of each other. Barbo had a brother -who witnessed the shootingoind in trying to prevent the trouble had his horse wound- ed. The trouble originated over a woman. Karain's Challenge • NEW YORK, January 3.—The following was received by Richard, K. Fox this morning from St. Louis: \Kilrain will sign articles to fight John L. Sullivan for $20,000 and the charnpio.. ship of the world at either Toronto, Otta- wa or Montreal.\ Both Mitchell and Kilrain emphatically deny that they have any misunderstand- ing with Fox. The Clipper received a letter from Louis B. Allen this afternoon stating that Jake Kilrain or his represen-‘ tative would meet Sullivan and his back- ers at Toronto, Monday, January 7, to sign articles for a match for $10,000 a side and the Police Gazette diamond belt. SULLIVAN AND KILRAIN. The Sluggers Will Sign Articles to Fight for Money anti Glory. . NEW YORK, January .5. --This morning Arthur Lumley received a telegram from John L. Sullivan, in which he stated he would leave to -night for Toronto, to meet Kilrain. to sign papers for the proposed fight for the world's championship. :BUFFALO, January 5. ---Jake Kilrain is- sued the following to -day: \In reply to Sullivan I wish to state that the Arneri- , can public will not be humbugged. Sul- livan must come to the scratch at the time appointed and arrange for a fight for $20,000 and the Police Gazette dia_ mond belt, which represents the cham _ pionahip of the world. Myself or repre- sentatives will be at the place appointed —Toronto. I mean, as heretofore, buai nese. It is too lute for Sullivan's excuses about a 'license'\
