Moses J. Liddell.
The ease Of Gilbbrist Bros. & Edgar ve.
Gremm & Green was commenced in Judge
hant's court on Saturday last.. The plain
tif sues the defendant for $06 for lumber
old and delivered. The case involved the
takinu of an sccomnt between the parties,
ad bid fair to drag on for several days.
leeterday afternoon the jary had their
Nets in court, when adispute arose between
Mise Knowles, connsel for plaintiff, and
Mr. Kinsley, counsel for defendant, over
the items of an amended bill of particulars
oh the plaintiff had furnished the de
fondant. The defendant olaimed surprise.
The court said that the plaintiff must be
limited to the items in the bill of partiou
lars first furnished, unless she amended her
complaint. Miss Knowles took leave to
amend. Thereupon the judge said that
the defendant, by law, had a right
to ten days' time in which to prepare to
meet the amended complaint. Then Judge
ntant took occasion to make the following
remarks: "I have been thinking over this
case, and I would like to establish a prece
dent of not trying $90 original cases in the
district court to juries. This ease, for in
stance has cost the county of Lewis and
Clarke upwards of $140 already. It is the
examination of an acconul6 that might go
over to-day and to-morrow upon trial, and
if it should run over. to-morrow it would
cost about $75 more. Now, the. constitu
tion of the state gives justices of the peace
jurisdiction to the extent of $800; those
courts are made by law for exactly snbch
oases as these. Parties have a right, it
is true, to some into the district court with
an action for $10, and to secure a
full jury at the county's expense; but
if they do, the court has also this
right for the protection of taxpayers,
namely, to order a reference of its own
motion when the trial of an issue of fact
requires the examination of a long account
on each side; in which cases the referees
may be directed to hear and decide the
whole ssue or report upon any specific
question of fact involved therein. Now, I
will establish the precedent by takiang this
case away from the jury, giving
the defendant ten days to answer the
amended complaint of the plaintiff on file,
and refer this case, of my own motion, to
a referee. And I do this, not with any dis
position to shirk the trial of oases, because
that is my duty; but a judge owes a duty to
the public, and it is wrong to the county of
Lewis apd Clarke that the court should
keep two panels of jurors, one in
this department and one in the
other department, in constant atten
dance to try $50 and $60 cases, and other
little disputes arising between parties that
should be settled in the justices of the
peaoe courts. I construe it to be my duty
to always guard the interests of the public,
as well as the interests of the litigants be
fore the court. The order will, therefore,
be made referring this case to It. G. Davies,
Esq.; that he pass upon the testimony as if
it were introduced in court, subject to the
soles and regulations of law; that he try
the whole issue; make reports, of the ac
codnting between these parties precisely as
if it were tried in open court before a dis
trict judge-separating his finding of faat
from his conclusions of law. And the costs
thus far in this case shallabide the final
desermination of the suit, and the report
of the referee. Gentlemen of the jury you
are excused from further consideration of
MO1ES J. LIDDELL.
Resolutions of Respect Presented in the
Ex-Chief Justice Wade, Ex-Chief Justice
N. W. McConnell, Ex-Assooiate Justice T.
C. Bach, Hon. R. B. Smith and Hon. A. C.
Botkin, presented to the supreme court yes
terday the resolutions of the bar concern
ing the late Moses J. Liddell, ex-associate
justice of the territory of Montana, who
died at Bozeman, Oct. 4, 1891: "The de
cehsed was a son of Gen. St. John R. Lid
dell, and was born at Llanada plantation,
in Cataboula parish, La., Jan. 15, 1845. At
the commencement of the civil war he en
tered the service of the confederate states
as a lieutenant in the Eighteenth Louisiana
regiment, and .for two years served in the
army of Virginia.' after which he was as
signed tb staff duty with the confederate
forces in Kentucky. At the conclusion of
the war he resume and completed his
studies at the state iversity of Louisiana,
and thereafter qualified himself for the
legal profession eand was admitted to the
bar in 1872. In 1876-7. he was a member of
the state legislature of Louisiana. From
1872 he practised law in the courts of his
native state until 1888 when he was ap
pbinted by President Cleveland
associate justice of the supreme court
of the territory of Montana. He served in
that position from April of that year to
N3vember, 1888, when the territory was ad
mitted to the union, after which he re
sumed the practice of his profession as a
member of the bar of Montana. His
opinions delivered during his term of ser
vice on the bench are published in the
seventh and eighth volumes of the Montana
reports. Judge Liddell greatly commended
himself to his associates of the supreme
court and to the bar by his extensive
knowledge of the law, his ready apprehen
sion of ripciples, his diligent devotion to
his duties, land his firm purppse that the
scurt of which he was a member should ful
fil to the utmost its high offie of rendering
justice to litigants: His unassailable in
tegrity was buttressed in a sincere love of
the right, and his genial and courteous
mtnners were but the outward sign of his
geluine kindliness of henrt. Wherefore,
be it resolved, that we recogniae in the
death of the late Moses J. Liddell a pre
mature loss of an associate of superior
ability, comprehensive learning and un
sullied purity of life, and one whose amiable
traits of private character endeared him to
all who enjoyed the high privilege of his ac
quaintance; that we tender to the family of
the deceased our heartfelt sympathy and
the assurance that the memory of the. hias
band and father who has gone fi om them
will be cherished by his associates of the
bench and bar of Montana." A copy of
the resolutions will be sent to Mrs. Liddell
at Bozeman. Chief Justice Blake on behalf
of tim court made an appropriate response.
Ex-Chief Justice Wade also made a terse

charge him with holding up Conduotor
Richardson, shooting Policeman (irogan
and holdingup Robert Ray. Those against
the girl charge complioity in the robbery of
the conductor, one claiming that she was
accessory before the fact and the other that
she was eooessory after the fact. The al
leged highwayman and highwaylady will be
arraigned in the district court to-day to
plead to the charges. It is more than likely
that they will plead not guilty. In that
event a day will be set for trial. It will not
be far of, probably no further than neces
sary to allow Policeman Grogan to recover
strength enough to appear in court.
Bertie Miller thinks she has good grounds
for a kick, and almost everybody that
.knows what it is about thinks she is pretty
nearly right. The enterprising pho
tographers who secured pictures of her and
Clark are reaping a rich harvest from the
sale of the same. Juqt'where the girl hap
pens to be in it to any extent nobody has
been able to discover, She has received
one copy of each picture.. Of course, in
every case of the arrest of people charged
with serious offences, it is customary for
the officers of the law to have the prison
ers' pictures taken. This Is in order to
keep a record of their faces and to have
something handy in case subsequent iden
tification is ever necessary. Helena, how
ever, furnishes the first case on record of a
prisoner, or a pair of prisoners, having
been allowed to sit for photographs for the
purpose of private speculation.
With the numerous excitements of the
past few weeks-hold-ups, shootings, and
assaults-Helena is getting to be a danger
one rival of Butte. One of the end men in
the minstrel show last night asked the in
terlocutor if he had travelled much. To be
sure he had; he had been to the four quar
ters of the earth. The end man promptly
wanted to know if the other had ever been
to the hind-quarters of the earth. The mid
dle man wanted to know where that was,
and the answer was Butte. This brought
out a laugh at the expense of the smoky
city. When the troupe strikes Butte again
no doubt the hind-quarters will be Helena.
Then there will be another laugh. The
Butte papers are already using the head
lines, "In wicked Helena."
Speaking of assaults recalls the fact that
there is one man on the police force who
believes in the story of Miss Josie Bow
man. He made a thorough investigation
of the matter and declares she was not the
woman whom Hooper frightened. He is
even pretty sure who the assailant was, he
says; but as the young lady cannot iden
ify the party, there has been no arrest.
The officer's name it is not necessary to
mention,though he and perhaps one other on
the force are notable exceptions to the long
lisi of those who are willing to believe that
the lady was more frightened than hurt.
The city council meets' to-night. Now
that the Main street paving question and
the city tax levy is out of the way, and the
motor franchise practically settled, it has
been suggested that the city fathers be
allowed a vacation. The regular meeting
nights are twice a month. For the past
several months, the council has been meet

The news comes from Dillon that Ex
State Senator Lawrance A. Brown is about
to test the legitimacy of the present state
government. He refused to allow the
inspector of mines to inspect the New De
parture, the property of the ax-senator. It
is stated that he is willing to have his
mine inspected by a duly authorized officer,
but does not think Hogan comes under
that head. In fact he thinks the whole
state machinery from the governor down
is a fraud. The ex-senator is certainly
original in his ideas. He was part of the
senate that helped to send Sanders and
Power to Washington, and some people
think his absence from the capital has
eansed a confusiaon of ideas as to who really
