The trial of Henry Clark for bighway
pbbery Alled all the seats tn Judge Hunt's
rt yesterday. There were a number of
be fair suo present, some of whom had
te in the space reserved for attorneys.
* was supposed that Clark's partner, Hele
oland, would be in the court room,
ihob probably brought a good paany speo
atore. She will not be on trial until some
itethis afternoon, if Clark'g ease is sn
eked to-day, which is the geaeral expects
en. While County Attorney Nolan was
iking his opening statement to the jury
uring the forenoon, Mr. B. G. Peak, who
presented Clark at the preliminary ox
ruination, took exception to some state
ente made by Col. Nolan to the jury as to
hat he expected to prove. The laterrup
ion came in such a way. as to call forth
me sharp remarks from the court. Judge
ant told the attorney that his language
ordered upon contempt, and that the
. ty attorney had not overstepped his
unds in outlining the proseoution'i ease
the jury. Mr. Peek seemed to be under
he impression that the state's attorney
as taking undue advantage of the pris
aer. The offending attorney subsided
fter the roasting. During the recese
n the afternoon he withdrew from
he case leaving his co-counsel, W. W.
helps to light it out. Clark and Officer
rogan claimed the attention of the spec
tors when there was not some tilt'going
a between the lawyers. The defepdant
at at the attorneys' table near his counsel.
e presented a neat appearance and ap
arently was the most collected person in
he court room. There was nothing in his
emeanor to indicate that he was on trial
or a crime the maximum penalty for which
s imprisonment for life. Even when Of
eer Grogan gave his graphio narrative of
is struggle with the highwayman on the
ight of Oct. 8, Clark preserved his im
rturbable air. The officer's testimony
as given to complete the chain of evidence
resented by the state to convict Clark of
ighway robbery. The court said he would
astruct the jury not to consider the offense
f shooting Grogan in passing upon the
ighway robbery case. Grogan walked to
he witness stand with the aid of a cane.
e still saffers from pain in his back where
he bullet was taken out. He has lost flesh
nd looks emaciated and weak. It was
nite an effort for him to speak loud
nough to be heard in all parts of the court
oom. He told how his attention
ad been called to a auspicious
coking individual on his beat that night.
bout 10:15 he saw a man standing on
ighth avenue between Rodney and Ewing.
e walked up to the man and said good
vening. and the salutation was returned.
he officer then asked him several quss
ione conoorning his business, where he
ived and whether he was married. The
an said he was married and lived on
roadway near Davis street. When Gro
an asked him his name he said be would
o and show him where he lived.
"Look at this defendant," said the county
ttorney, "and see if you recognize him,"
"That's the nentleman."
The witness then detailed 1t1e struggle
ith the highwayman. He noticed a re
olversticking out of the man's right hand
ants pocket and grabbed it with his left
and, at the same time aiming his own
eapon at the man's breast, The fellow
cached with his right hand for the pistol
.hich Grogan had seized. "I took my eyes
ff his face," the witness said, "and looked
t his right hand. At that instant I was
hot." A nickel plated 88-caliber revolver
as handed to him for examination. He
aid in general appearance it resembled the
no with which he had been shot, but could
ot say positively that it was the identical
"Are yen sure that this defendant is the
•an who shot you?"
"I am confident that he is the man."
When referring to Clark Grogan used his
ane to point him out to the jury, When
e did this Clark never took his small sharp
yes off the face of the witness.
Grogan's testimony in this case is not
onsidered so important as it will be if
lark should escape conviction for highway
obbery and is tried for assault with at
eempt to commit murder., The informa
ion he is now being tried under eharges
tim with holding up and taking a watch
way from Robert Ray a few hours after
rogan was shot. Ray identified the silver
eatch found in the possession of Clark
hen arrested. He could not tell it by the
eambers on it but recognized the watch by
small crack in the dial. His identifesa
ion of Clark was not so positive as to re
ove a reasonable doubt. The other testi
ony as given by the officers is substan
ially the same as it was at the preliminary
xamination before Judge Sanders.
The prosecution took up considerable
time during the afternoon In endeavoring
establish that the nickle-plated revolver
s the same one taken from Clark when
earched immediately after the arrest. All
he witnesses who testified about it said the
istol resembled the one found on the pris
nor, but none of them could swear posi
ively. One of the court officers suggested
it would be well hereafter that when
rticles are taken from prisoners to mark
hem so they could be identified in court.
The prosecution expects to close its case
his forenoon when the defense will have
an opportunity to present its side. There
a much interested manifested as to whether
lark will testify in his own behalf. As
son as his case is given to the jury to-day
he trial of Helen Foreland for highway
obbery will commence.
Clarke's case is being heard by the fol
owing jurymen: A. P. Dodge, Charles
Watson, Geo. Bardwell, David Morris, W.

WHERE IS HER SONY
An O'ld Lady for Whom Somebody no
Some two weeks ago an old lady was sent
to the poor farm under the name of Mary
Brown. She escaped and went to Elliston,
where she told the people she had a son
somewhere in these parts and was looking
for him. Her actions led to the belief that
she was out of her head and she was sent
back to Helena. Hsre some kind hearted
people took ares of her for a night and she
was sent back to the poor farm. It hab
been ascertained since that her name is
Mrs. Watson, and that she has a son,
Frank Watson, somewhere in this western
country. She is no doubt somewhat de
ranged, but this part of her story is be
lieved bythose who have heard it. It is
probable that Frank Watson, if he could
be located, would be glad to help his aped
and unfortunate mother.

Amount Offered to
Ialt Wlinaer mad to Pay the Costs [t
eurred in the Priest's Pass
After a two days' struggle in Judge
Fleisoher's court, John W. rtost yesterday
got a verdiot of $1 damages against Them
as D. Reilly. The case has something of a
history. Frost and Reilly lire on Ten Mile,
and are neighbors of Mrs. Celeste B.
Priest., Some thme ago Mrs. Priest seoured
an injunction in the distriot court to pre
vent Joseph Girard, who id associated with
Frost, driving through her grounds. After
the injunction was issued, It !solaimed that
Frost tore down Mrs, Priest's fence and
continued to use her place as. a publio high
way. The fence ias again put up by the
owner. Thomas D. Reilly, a six-footer
with a hand like a ham and heart as big as
a watermelon, espoused the course of Mis.
Priest for the reason that the
lady had no men about the
house to fight her battles.
On September 25 last, Reilly went to the
Priest place, having been informed that
Frost was threatening further trouble.
While he was there Frost came along and
announced his intention to again tear down
the fence. This angered Reilly, who used
his fists to good advantage on Frost. The
latter swore out a warrant against Reilly,
who, in order not to drag the women into
the difficulty, went before Judge Woodman
and bonfessed the assault. He was fined
$10. Frost then brought suit before Judge
Fleisher for $800 damages wh'oh he claimed
to have received at the hands of Reilly.
SThis was the cade decided yesterday by a
jury. No denial was made of the assault.
In fact, the defense had already offered to
admil damages in the sum of $10.
This offer was not accepted and
the matter had to go to trial. The
plaintiff was represented by J. W. Shober,
H. R. Comly and George Foote. The coun
sel for Reilly were Massena Bullard, T. J.
Walsh and C. B. Nolan. -Messrs. Comly
and Nolan were not present. The court
room was crowded, principally with wit
nesses and neighbors who had come in to
see the issue of the war over in Priest's
The main question was as to the amount
of damages Reilly's fists had inflicted on
Frost, There was considerable difference
of opinion on this point, one side contend
ing that Frost had been bumped around
until he bled at the nose, mouth and ears.
The other side held that the damage in
flicted was slight. The arguments occupied
most of the afternoon and the jury were
out only a few minutes, bringing in a
verdict for Frost for one dollar.
lhis, while apparently in Frost's
favor, really throws on him all the
costs except sueach as Reilly incurred for
subpoenaing witnesses prior to his offer to
settle the matter. Section 471 of the code
of civil procedure provides that, "The de
fendant may at any time before the trial or
judgment, serve upon the plaintiff an offer
to allow judgment to be taken against him
for the sum or property. If the notice of
acceptance be not given the offer shall be
deemed withdrawn; and if the plaintiff fail
to obtain a more favorable judgment he
shall not recover costs, but shall pay the
defendant's costs f;om the time of the
offer." The only costs incurred by Reilly
prior to his offer of settlement were thirty
cents. This, with the damages awarded,
was promptly paid. The costs which fall
on the plaintiff through a failure to get a
judgment better than the $10 offered him.
amounts to 'between $150 and $200. The
pay of the legal talent employed in the
case, with the costs, make it one of the.
most expensive law suits ever. brought in a
