YOUNG MOTHER SEEKING
CUSTODY OF HER BABE
Superintendent of Materni
ty Home Asserts Where
Abouts of Infant Un
known to Her.
Emma Powell gave birth to a male
child at the Butte Maternity Home,
903 Nevadastreet, Feb. 28, 1916.
Emma Powell, now Emma Stinson,
has secured a writ of habeas corpus
from the district court to compel
Hattie Bucher, superintendent of the
home, to produce the infant in court,
and also asks that the custody of
her baby be granted to her by the
court. She alleges that ever since
its birth, the said Hattie Bucher has
retained the child in her possession
and denied the mother her natural
right of possessing her baby.
Ilattie Bucher came into court this
morning through her attorney, Peter
Breen, and answered to the effect
that on March 1, 1916, two days
after the infant's birth, the child was
adopted by a resident of Anaconda,
and taken away from the Butte Ma
ternity Home; and that said Hattie
Bucher knows nothing at present of
the child's whereabouts, or whether
it is still alive.
Attorney Dan Malloy, representing
the plaintiff, served notice that his
client would protest this return to
the writ of habeas corpus.

Dwyer's Court Scene of
Choice Gathering. Part
ner in ~oze Alleges Theft
of Stock by Kelly,
In Dwyer's court today sat Lucile
toward, Joe Kelly, Mrs. Joe KIly,
'Red" Dickerson, '.A:"C. Conn and
Mr. Alley, all interested in the dis
position of the whisky which was
seized in the Aimira apartmentsi
April 11. Legal talent of distinction
seeks to bulwark the respective
claims of these worthy citizens to
the treasure in Jackson's vault. At
toiney Tomn Walker is supporting
Lucile, Mr. Emigh is protecting
Kelly; while Attorney Cohen lenids
his abilities in aid of the state, as
represented by Joseph Jackson, Nick
Rotering, Mr. McDaniels and Offi
cer Jack Melia.
Melia told again at length this
morning the story of his seizure of
the 140 cases of whisky at the Al
mira apartments. Mrs. Kelly aond
Mrs. Gill, who reside at the Almira,
"Red" Dickerson took the stand
in behalf of his claim for a part of
the liquor, and swore that he, Joe
Kelly, A. C. Conn and Mr: Alley had
thrown in together in the purchase.
of 5S cases of whisky in the latter,
part' of December----their purpose,
of course, being to keep the entire
amount, every single one of the
little pint bottles, for their own use
Dickerson said that the lot of 58
cases was stored in the home of a
Mr. Rafferty, father-in-law of Joe
Kelly; that Kelly had assured his
partners of the admirable security
which the home of Raffterty offered
for the storage of such treasure, be
cause no burglar would ever get a,
chance at it, since the family was
always at home; and because the
family-being, as it were, a part of
Kelly himself, by marriage-could
be absolutely depended upon.
But Dickerson claims that one day
he discovered that the house of
Rafferty no longer sheltered the 58
cases which the four partners had
cached there to await the demands
of their respective thirsts. Dicker
son says that he reported this loss
to Jack Melia about three days be
fore Joe Kelly was arrested on the
charge of stealing whisky-from 217
North Emmet street, and taking it
to tihe Almira apartments. Dicker
son's contention is that Kelly him
self stole the booze from his father
in-law's house--ihaving decided that
Joe Kelly might as well have the
whole of 58 cases as only to have
a quarter share in 58 cases; that
the whisky seized by Melia at apart
ment 45, Almira apartments, was
partly composed of this partnership
stock of 58 cases; and that conse
quently "Red" Dickerson is entitled
to his share of the stuff.
The most- remarkable feature to
all these booze cases is the stead
fast unanimity with which all claim
ants maintain that they invested
their scanty earnings in whisky just
before the dry laws went into ef
fect, solely in order to possess an
adequate supply for their own ap
petites. Each and every one will
swear solemnly that they had never
the remotest thought of committing
such an atrocious offense against
the law as selling a drink-or even
giving a drink away.
All of these people, who seem to
he not particularly affluent, boughlt
large quantities of excellent Whisky
in phlt and half-pitnt bottles to save
for their own uses in the distalit

STATE U MEN IO Ei1LL

6 Weeks' Course in R. O. T.
C. Camp Opens June 21.
Students from the State University
of Montana will enroll in the reserve
officers' training camp this summer
at the Presidio, San Francisco. The
camp opens on June 21 and continues
for six weeks. The student is grapt
ed three and a half cents a mile fo
transportation to and from San Fran
cisco, and free maintenance while in
camp. Colonel Gillen, commandant
of the State University R. O. T. C.,
expects to be stationed at the Pre- S)
sidio himself this summer, but as yet
he has received no definite instruc
tinos from head quarters.
A student after attending a sum
mer camp and after completing his
two years' course in the R. O. T. C.
unit at the university, can draw $15
a month from the government for
continuing his R. O. T. C. training.
This means practically $125 a year to
the student while he is going to
school along with the opportunities
that training affords and the regu
lar credits that the university offers
for the military course.
