SUCCESSORSTOF.^ 6AOB * CO
Chicago,June 14 ^Alexander Sullivan^waa today restored to liberty by Judge^Tuley. The release was the immediate^result of Sullivan's application for a writ^of habeas corpus. Bail was fixed at $20.^000 and promptly furnished by four well^known citizens, each of whom represented^many times the total amount asked. Sulli^van walked out of the court, after having^been less than three days in custody. Sel^^dom if ever has a case drawn such a crowd^as that which assembled this afternoon to^hear the expected decision. The court^room was jammed and a big concourse of^men assembled in the corridor adjoining,^seeking to catch from afar the words troui^the judge's Hps.
States-AttorneyLongenecker and his^assistant, Mr. Baker, were in consultation^with Judge Tuley before he came on the^bench. Several unknown men also en^^tered his chamber. They were presumably^members of the coroner's jury who re^^turned the verdict in the Cronin case. Mr.^Sullivan was early on the scene, lie was^brought in by Sheriff Matsou personally.^On Sullivan's arrival he took a seat in^the center of the circle formed by his law^^yers, Messrs. Trude, Wendes and Gilbert,^with whom he entered into a whispered^consultation. A score of members of tlie^bar evinced professional and friendly inter^^est in Mr. Sullivan by being present. Cor^^oner Hertz occupied a seat t^v Judge Long-^enecker. Congressman Frank Lawler^came in when everybody bad been seated,^calling from the jocular Trude the^observation, ^Lawler is here; now let the^proceeding* begin.^ There was a wait of^three quarters of an hour before Jud*e^Tuley reached his court room. Finally at^3:45 p. m. he ascended the bench with a^written opinion, which it soon became^apparent had been made only after a care^f ul analysis of the whole mass of testimony^in the case, and not, as first prop ease.^merely that relating to Sullivan alone.
ullivanbraced himself in his chair and^kept his eyes fixed on the court as Judge^Tuley said:
'1suppose there will be no further step*^taken beyond this evidence before the cor^^oner's jury '.*
JudgeLongenecker replied: ^That is all:^there is no addition I testimony.
'Becauseif you had any the court would^feel compelled to hear it,^ said the judge.^Tuley then in his characteristic malter-of^fact manner began reading his decision^and bad not proceeded two minutes when^the frowns of those connected with Mm^prosecution told what was the drift. The^decision in substance is a follows: The^judge said the application before him was^tor the release of Alex. Sullivan on bail^under the bill of rights which provided for^the balling of persons accused of murder^where the evidence or the presumption ot^their guilt was not strong. The court re^^ferred to the terms ol the agreement under^which the matter was left to him on the^evidence before the coroner. He said be^bad read eleven hundred type written^pages of the evidence before tbe^coroner's jury. Much of the tes-^timoney was irrelevant and incom^^petent before the court but a^wide scope was allowed tbe coroner in^such investigations. He could even bear^hearsay evidence if it gave direction to the^form in which any inquiry shiulri be di^^rected, so as to bring about the discovery^of the persons guilty of Or. Cronin's mur^^der. There was a good deal of this bear^aay evidence. Mrs. Conklin and Scanian^testified that they heard Cronin say that^there was a plot to assassinate him and^Sullivan was back of it. Barry, Morris^and O'Brien testified substantially to the^same thing, the last named saying that^Cronin was afraid of Sullivan, Boland and^Buckley. O'Connor, Ford and Ives testi^^fied later to a singular statement by Cro^^nin as to his cross-^xamination be^^fore a notary, and that he believed^that was a part of the plot,^and that Sullivan was at the head of it.^Dillon said he talked about it so much that^he believed Cronin had Sullivan on the^brain. Uaggert^'s evidence waa the most^important, and the statements he testified^to that Cronin made were made about the^time of Cron.n's trial in 1**5 The testi^^mony given by Haggerty on that point was^substantially the only evidence that Sulli^^van made a direct threat against Cronin's^life. The court knows of no rule of law^that would admit the declaration of Cronin^made out of Sullivan's presence. It would^not be admitted before any committing^magistrate. It was shown by the evidence^that Sullivan was prominent in Irish^nationalist circles: that the tri^^angle controlled Irish matters; that^several camps were expelled as^also was Cronin: that from Cronin's pres^^ence on the committee which tried Sulli^^van, Boland and Tenny, Sullivan waa in^^spired with an enmity toward Cronin^which the evidence showed was recipro^^cated. Cronin was murdered as the result^of a conspiracy. That was also shown by^the evidence, and likewise it showed that^back of this conspiracy were personal ene^^mies of Cronin. But whate\ilence was^there that Sullivan was one of those ene^^mies^ There was not an act in^connection with the murder which related^to Sullivaa. Another theory was that Cro^^nin was removed to prevent disclosure^;^but their was no evidence that he had any^facts that would die with him. The facts^in his possession lived after his death.^The coroner had been unable to find any^trace of any proceedings in any camp to^condemn him to death. Another theory^was that he was removed because be was a^British spy. If Cronin was removed by^the United Brotherhood it could not be^seen bow Sullivan actuated it^since be had not been a^member for several years. The evidence^didn't show that Sullivan had any rela^^tions, social or otherwise, with Coughiin,^1'. O. Sullivan or Woodruff, or that he met^them, or that there was a cxnspiracy. Tbe^coroner's jury was largely influenced by^outside sentiment. There was no doubt^that the suspicion against sullivaa was^strong. He tele a bitter and malignant^hatred of Cronin, there was no doubt,^but it seemed almost impossible that if^he were guilty of a conspiracy to kill^Cronin, he could have promulgated,^in two weeks after Cronin's^murder his protest, made at the Buffalo^trial, in which he branded Cronin as a^scoundrel and perjurer. No impartial man^could believe it possible for a jury to con^^vict Sullivan on tbe evidence presented.^^As any hesitation ought to be resolved in^favor ot personal liberty,^ said the court.^'1 will admit his release to bail and hear^the counsels' suggestions as to the amount.^'^Mates-Attorney l.ongenecker suggested^$25,000 bail, which Lawyer Trude thought^ou Id be excessive. Longenecker sai.i be^would consent that the bail should remain^as fixed, provided indictments were found^on no other evidence than already before^the coroner's jury. If additional evidence^were introduced, he would reserve his^right to secure a capias and there settle the^question of additional ball.
Anumber of witnesses ia tbe Cronin case^who should be able to identify the mysteri-^ous ^J. B. Simonds,^ who rented the Carl^^son cottage and did other queer things, left^for New York to-night There is a sus^^picion that tbe grand jury returned indict^^ments against Maroney and McDonnell,^but that the fact has been purposely kept^secret.
Thus.Tierney. an employe of the ice^man Sullivan, is the latest suspect in the^Cronin mystery. To-night Tierney was^occupying a cell at one of the police sta^^tions. The officers claim his wbereabiuts^on the night of May 4 has not been account^ed for, and that there are a number of mat^^ters connected with the case in which t^has been found be has not told tbe trn^Tierney is a member of the Clan na gael.
agreedtbe matter should go over until to^^morrow.
ThreeChicago detectives connected with^the 1'iukerton agency, began an Investiga^^tion into the Clan-na-Gvl affairs in Brook -^l^n yesterday. According to the Eagle ot^that city they are of opinion that at least^one of the men who murdered Dr. Cronin^came direct to Brooklyn from London and^that the details for Cronin's removal were^arranged by the Clan-na Gael men in that^city.
Maroneytold a Mail and Express reporter^today that be had no photograph of him^^self. He and his friends allege that tbe^arrests made here are simply for the pur^^pose of destroying Alexander Suilivan.anu^if posaible, reflecting upon Patrick Egan.^Maroney says Luke Dillon's object in Chi^^cago is not to hud the murderers of Cron:n.^but to drag Sullivan in the in d and make^bim so notorious thai the president will^not appoint him to a public office. He al^^leges that Dillon's actions are directed^from New York city, and that John Devoy^is engineering tbe movement which is now^bringing odium on the Irish organizations.

Kana- City, June 14. ^Wiliiaia G.^Melville, of this city, ia at present a clerk^in the office of the trans-Misaouri railway^association. He formerly traveled for the^St Paul ft Kansas City railroad. April^15 last he was in Chicago on business for^the Chicago, St Paul A Ktnsas City com^^pany. He registered his name as W. G.^Melville at McCoy's hotel in that city. A^Chicago detective heard that John J. Maro^^ney, the Irishman who is supposed to^have been one of the murderers of Dr.^Cronin. registered at the hotel about April^10. and they examined the register, and^after comparing the alleged specimens of^Maroney's handwriting with the names in^the register declared Maroney had written^the ^W. G. Melville.^ Detectives also dis^^covered that Thomas Desmond, the Irish^nationalist of San Francisco, had numer^^ous interviews with Maroney or Melville^at the hotel between April 11 and April 21.^Melville only stopped iu Chicago one day,^and the man who had interviews with him^was not tbe Irish nationalist, but Samuel^Stopplet, another railroad man, who is at^present also a clerk in the same office witb^Melville. May 3 W. A. Melville an l wife,^of St. Paul, registered at the same hotel,^and the detectives are making a hard but^unsuccessful attempt to reconcile the two^hands as shown in the writing on the reg^^ister. W. G. Meiville is not an Irishman^and never had ar.vt . _ to do with the^i .an na Gael organization. He was reared^in Lawrence, Kats. and since leaving^school has been iu tbe employ of the rail^^road.
Livio*toji, June 14.^[Special to the^Independent ]^ W. J. Blake was yesterday^arrested and tried before Probate Judge^Clifford for violating the scab law passed^at the last session. Blake had 3 000 sheep^in his charge belonging to L. D. Hoy,^which be had brought here last week from^Washington territory. They were to be^driven to Miles Citj and from there shipped^to market The sheep had not been in^^spected by a veterinary, as required by^law, and Blake wm fined J250 and costs of^prosecution. Hon. George U. Carver, the^father of this law, is in tbe city and had^an opportunity to be present at perhaps the^first case tried in tbe territory.
C.S. Hefferlin, a well-known and prom^^inent Livingston capitalist, has decided to^start a private bask here in the near fu^ture with a capital of ^20,000. O. L. Carey,^a prominent banker of St Paul, is in the^city looking over the ground for a national^bank. If arrangements are completed it^is understood that both Helena and Liv^^ingston capitalists will be interested in the^institution.

It was thoroughly enjoyed^throughout Tbe paper edited by Miss^Kate Evans was very amusing, and ^A^^redict'on,^ an essay by Walter Hardea-^brook, was well written, well read and^higbl^ entertaining. But tbe most inter^^esting part of the exhibition was a mock^court trial, gotten up by Miss Abbie Bird-^sail, teacher in elocution. It was original^in every part and abounded in local hits

Butif Cottonwood hall was full Wednes^^day night, it was crowded yesterday, at the^graduation exetcises of the senior class.^Six devoted and earnest studeuts have for^the first time in the history of Montana^haafj graduated from a Montana college.^They are ..s follows: Mi^s Linuie Hat'er-^ton, daughter of the Hon.

RutLiltlr Hu.tnes. Transacted Yesterday^^To Adjourn To-Oay.
Dksvek,June 14 ^But little business of^any great importance was transacted at^the typographical convention today^Among the recommendations of tbe finance^committee was one to the effect that the^members of local unions dying on the road^while holding certificates from the Inter^national Typographical union shall be^buried at the expense of the union, showed^up a brisk fight Some members advocated^further delay for tbe sake of improving^upon the provisions for the burial of de^^ceased traveling printers. The ^tramp^printers, at whom the provision was^aimed, found an elcquent champion and^hard fighter in M. C. Phillips, of Jackson.^Mich. He contended that vast numbers of^tramp printers are lying in unknown graves^and will continue to die uncared for, in^case of further delay. The recommenda^^tion was lost A motion was then carried^that tbe subject be referred to the Commit^tee on laws, with orders to report at the^next session. This was fought through the^stages of a vivi voce and hand votes up to^an aye and nay vote, and finally carried^^53 to 41. At this point the union went into^executive session. The committee on laws^non concurred in M. C. Phillips' resolution^to make any member of subordinate unions^as eligible for office as for delegate. Mr^Kalis offered a substitute that no one ex^cept a delegate or an ex-delegate shall be^eligible to elective offices In the union;^adopted^rid to 38.
Thereis to be an effort made to recon^^sider the vote by which the president's^ruling, that there was no vaeancy in otfi^ces, obtained on Wednesday. Then another^attempt will be made to overturn the work^of the Kansas City convention in electing^officers for two years. If that is successful^several candidates for the offices will^spring up, as if by magic, where now not^one can be found. Only tbe greatest^esteem for the present officers and expres^sions of a disposition to keep them in office^can be heard; but if once the bars are^down the delegates will have several nomi^^nations to consider. A session is being^held to-night but up to a late hour nothing^important has been transacted. Tbe con^^vention will adjourn to-morrow.

Washington.June 14 ^The agreement^between England.Germany and the United^States on Samoan affairs was signed at^Berlin this afternoon. It will not be made^public until confirmed by the senate.^While it is called an agreement by the offi^^cers of the state department. Walker^Blaine said this e\ ening that he thought It^would undoubtedly require ratification by^the senate. If the instrument signed were^one regulating the conduct of two countries^towards each other, as for instance be^^tween the 1'nited States and Samoa, tt^would properly be designated as a treaty;^but where the instrument signed is to^shape the conduct of three gi vernments.^viz: the United states, England and Ger^many, towards a fourth party, Samoa, it is^held the proper nomenclature is an agree^^ment. At the same time, as it is a matter^affecting the foreign powers of the United^States, it is said it will need ratification by^the senate, and that therefore it cannot be^made public prior to action by the senate.^The agreement was cordially approved by^all the members of the conference and by^their respective governments. The best ot^feeling prevails at the termination of the^labors of the commissioners.
Berlin,June 14 ^America having aban^doiied her principal oiijections to the agree^ment previously arrived at the plenipoten^tiaries had only to make unessential modi^^fications in the wording of the draft of the^treaty. The draft guarantees tbe auton^^omy of Samoa under the joint control of^Germany and America, England acting as^arbitrator in the event of differences^arising. Tbe Samoans are to elect their^own king and viceroy.and to be represented^in a senate composed of the principal^chiefs and chambers elected by^the people. Samoa ia to have^the right of levying duties of^every kind. The treaty also stipulates^that the G^ rmans shall receive a money in^^demnity for their losses. A special court^will be appointed to deal with the land^question. The Americans made their ad^hesion conditional upon the ratification of^the treaty by the United States senate.^The status quo will, therefore, obtain In^Samoa until December. Phelps will carry^the treaty to W ashington. Tbe treaty will^not be published until signed by the Ameri^^can government
Kasson,Phelps and Bates cordially^thanked Herbert Bismarck tor the courte^^ous manner in which they were treated,^and they warmly praised the skill and tact^with wnich he had presided over the delib^^erations of tne conference. Sir Edward^Maiet thanked Count Herbert on behalf of^tbe English delegates. Count Herbert in^reply said he hoped they had reached a^final solution of a difficult question.
London,June 14.^The Post's Berlin^correspondent says tbe samoan treaty ar^^ranges for the restoiation of Malietoa and^for the appointment of German and Ameri^^can ^dvisers to the king, with an English^counsellor to adjust the balance. The^American delegates have the utmost con^^fidence that the treaty will be ratified by^the United States senate.
TheBerlin correspondent of the Times^sa^s the Americans have undoubtedly^emt rged from the Samoan conference with^flying colors. Germany has to content her^^self with much leas political predominance^in Samoa than she claimed at Washington^two years ago. This result is much more^due to the firm attitude of Blaine than to^ny political leanings of England toward^the power which it is her highest aim to^conciliate. The Times in an editorial on^the Samoan agreement says: ^Perhaps it^is as well that Prince Bismarck has been^made to realize that where American in^^terests are concerned the American^government is very little af^^fected by many of those con^^siderations which restrain the action^of those European governments with which^he is more assustomed to ileal. It is easy^to see there might lee many reasous why it^might be expedient tor England to follow^the line of policy in regard to German ac^^tion in Samoa which it is natural and ne^^cessary for America to pursue. It Is not^less plain than even (rermany must think^twice or thrice before provoking a collision^with America over such a question. There^fore we rejoice at the influence of America,^so moderately and effectually exerted.

Iif teen ThuuMUd Dollar* Lost by the Fire^at Butte Yesterday Morning.
Bt'ttk,June 14. ^[Special to the Inde^^pendent]^At 2 o'clock this morning an^alarm of fire waa sounded, caused by the^breaking out of a fire in Mrs Oliver's ice^cream saloon, on tne north side of Park^street five doors east of Wyoming. The^firemen were slow in turning out and few^in number. Finally when water was^turned on tbe flames they had already^spread to several adjoining buildings. Tbe^new and old hose of the fire department^proved utterly unfit for the purpose, and^when the pressure was turned on the rut -^^^er bursted. The fire burned compara^^tively without check until a number of^buildings were completely in ruins. Gi-^rard's blacksmith shop was totally de^^stroyed, entailing a loss of Sl,500,.with no^insurance. Immediately west of this was^a one-story frame house; loss about S200.^The building was owned by John^O'Kourke, whose loss is not less than^$1,000. There la no insurance. Next door^was a shoemaker shop, in which John^Lester worked. His loss Is not worth^mentioning, as he removed his stock.^This building was also owned by John^O'Kourke who loses $500; no Insurance.^The next building was a harness shop^owned by Mr. Joubienville. He saved^part of bis goods, but Is a loser to the ex^^tent of $5,000 and carried no Insurance.^West of tbe harness shop stood the Motor^saloon, which was run by Chas. Provost.^He loses $1,000. The building was owned^by La veil Bros., who also lose $1,000; no^insurance. Immediately west of this^stood the ice-cream parlor of Mrs. Oliver.^She was insured for $900. which^folly coven the loss. The building^waa owned by Lavell Bros., and*^they lost $1,000, which Is not^covered by insurance. Next door was a^saloon run by Dan Cassin, who loses $1,000^on the stock and building; no insurance.^His neighbor, J. Kudolph, who was opera^^ting a mattress factory, loses $500, and^Lavell Bros, in the building, $1,000. neither^insured. West of this waa Mrs. McAffrey^millinery store, and she loses $1,000. The^fire stopped at W. Bair's store, which was^damaged to the extent of $200. The total^loss by the fire is $15,200, and only $3uu^was covered by insurance. The theory ad^^vanced in explanation of the fire ia that a^lamp exploded In the ice cream saloon.^This is tbe same place in which the fire^caught night before last There are many^who believe the fire to have been incen^^diary.

A Miner in the Clark*. Fraction Mine^Meet. Mith a Terrible Fate.
Bltte,June 14.^[ Special to the Inde^^pendent J^An accident occurred this after^^noon at 2:30 o'clock which cost Anton Mel-^lin his life. Mellin was a car man and^worked on the 500-level of the Clark's Frac^^tion at Walkerville. He had just loaded a^lot of ore on the cage, and signaled the^engineer to hoist The cage started up and^what next happened will never be known,^as Mellin was entirely alone. The engin^^eer states that tbe cage had come about^fifteen feet when he was signaled to lower.^Thinking an accident had happened.he sent^the cage back in a hurry. Mellin had^stepped under it, probably to shovel away^some loose rock, and he was caught and^crushed to death. There were about 1,300^pounds on the cage, and it is likely the un^^fortunate man never realized what struck^him. No signal coming from below, the^engineer ordered an Investigation, and^Mellin was found and brought to the sur^^face. He was dead when picked up. The^coroner's jury, which waa summoned at^once, exonorated the company from all^blame. Mellin was a native of Switzer^^land, 36 years of age and unmarried. He^bas no relatives in this country.
SWINDLEDBY A MEDIUM.
FrederickBoxhnork Taken in and i^one^For bv a Fair PrieMe...
NewY'ork special: Medium Minnie E.^Williams is perbaps 40, but she doesn't^look it by five years. She gives ^seances^^to tbe gullible. To some people she bas^represented that she owns the bonse she^lives in, and all that's In It Probably^some naughty spirit told her tbis waa true,^and pet haps she innocently believes such^to be the case. But It is not and if she Is^called upon to prove her title at law, and^this is eminently probably just now, she^will find it hard to force the hardened, un-^spiritualistic judges who occupy tbe^benches of the superior court to accept the^testimony of spirit witnesses. Among tbe^devotees at the shrine of this fair priestess^of the unknowable was a geutleman^named Frederick Boschneck, super^^intendent of tbe mechanical depart^^ment of Browning, King .v Co,^In this city, and he draws a large salary.^Among his friends be is known as a de^^vout believer In spiritualism, possessing^no little power himself. Three years ago^be discovered Ibis powor, and in order to^develop It be sought tbe offices ot some^good medium. His ill star guided bim to^tbe priestess Minnie. She waa glad to see^bim, and, according to bis own story ss^related to the court she took bim to ber^spiritualistic bosom. For a time all went^well and Mr. Boschneck waa happy. Not^so, however, Mrs. Boschneck. Not that^she knew anything wrong of ber hus^band's conduct If there was anything^wrong she didn't know it, or if abe thought^she knew anything ahe never mentioned it^But Mr. B'schneck waa evidently,^for tbe apace of time between^July 4 and 11, 1886, more interested^In communicating with tbe supposed spirits^of dead friends, through the medium of the^mild-spoken Mme. Minnie, than be was in^attending to the temporal welfare of his^wife and children. The medium gave^seances for his private benefit, and bearing^in mind the old motto about striking when^the Iron is not, she struck him^on his^pocketbook. He charges in his suit, just^commenced, that between the two dates^above mentioned, Mme Minnie borrowed^from bim tbe sum of $500. Since then be^bas tried to collect it but some perverse^spirit, perhaps avarice, has Impelled the^borrower to refuse to pay it
Becomingtired ot being refused he now^asks the court to force ber to pay. In order^to more surely justify his claim Mr. Bosch^^neck swears In his complaint that Mme.^Minnie resorted to fraud in order to obtain^The fraud consists in having^him ^ber^ house as s. urity. The^abe claimed to have purchased for^$14,000, $10,000 of which came in insurance^money upon the death of ber husband, and^$4,000 which was given her by a real be^^nevolent person who wanted ber to have a^temple of worship whither spirits could^come and make themselves at home like^th* messenger boys do while waiting for a^cali.

They had quarreled about the^Emmett mines and Murphy employed^abusive language and epithets which Ham^^mond resented, warning him not to repeat^them. Murphy did repeat the language,^and Hammond struck him. Thereupon^Murphy plunged a knife into Hammond's^fangs, abdomen and groin before he could^be disarmed. Portions of tbe lungs and^intestines protruded from these wounds.^Hammond lived In great agony until It^o'clock this morning, when he died.^Sheriff Leasure put a strong guard^over Murphy, but soon found^there was an intention of the miners to^lynch the murderer, and by strategy re^^moved bim to Wallace.
