Curious Romance of tho Life of the
Beautiful and Notorious
Bonnie Le Mar.
Special to Tho Tribune.
BUTTE, Mont., June Bonne-vi
eve Le Mar, b,ettcr
known as "Bonnie," one of
the most notorious yet beautiful
women of the mining camps of the
West, is on a journey to Colorado,
where she proposes to search every city,
village and hamlet in that State for her
11-year-old son, Francis Lo Mar, wljo,
she declares, has fallen heir to the
estate and wealth of the Dunsmore
family of Brockmore, England, worth
several million dollars.
The missing boy was kidnaped from
his mother seven years ago while Roy
Dunsmore, son of the noble English
family, was waging a bitter war In the
divorce courts of Colorado ngnlnsA; the
woman. In tho early '90s Roy Duns
more, on a trip through the West in
search of health, met the beautiful
Bonevieve Le Mar, and after a brief
courtship married her. When the
aristocratic parents of Dunsmore heard
of his union to the girl they promptly
disowned the son and his wife.
In 1SD3 the Lo Mar woman bore a son
and the couple appeared to be happy.
Trouble broke out later between Duns
more and his wife, apparently over the
strained relations existing between the
son and his parents, finally culminating
in a suit In the courts of Colorado for a
divorce. While the suit was on Francis
Le Mar, the son, was kidnaped from
his mother.
The Colorado courts finally decided
against Bonnie Le Mar and the child
was placed In a humane home, which
institution later permitted its adoption
by some family whose name the au
thorities refused to divulge. Since that
I line the records of the home have been
lost and the identity of the boy de
stroyed. Roy Dunsmore died a few years ago
and his last request to his father was
that the latter provide for the lost boy.
1 Two months ago the parents of Dunn
more passed away at Brockmore, leav
ing the grandson one of the heirs.
The Le Mar woman has been living
at Dillon, a small camp forty miles
south of Butte, where she received
! word of the death of the Dunsmoros.
She was in Butte today en route to
Colorado to prosecute the search for
her son. Despite the life led by the
woman she Is still beautiful.

KANSAS CITY, June (, Further

Kansas within the past twelve

In the valley of tho Neosho and
Cottonwood rivers continue to grow
worse. Theso streams are higher

The Kaw, which caused the real darn

come up slowly at Topeka, Lawrence
and Kansas City, but as yet no alarm Is
felt over the result of the flood along
this stream.
Missouri Is Rising-.
Although tho Missouri river at Kan

believed It will be able to carry off the
great amount of water coming this way
from the west through the Kaw.
Oklahoma and the Indian Territory
streams are also high and In somo in

Railway service throughout the
Southwest is still demoralized and a

As far as known but two persons, a

from the bursting barrels flooded

streams ran toward the river, andi In
a short time there was a foot of
whisky In the cattle pens east of
the warehouse.
It was burning furiously and' tho
cries of the 3200 steers, chained fast,
were pitiable to hear. Their distress
lasted but a few moments, however,
for they were soon dead, either

They were the property of Dodd &

The two fermenting houses were

were of large dimensions and both
of them were practically destroyed.
The flames threatened the mill and

However, the firemen made a win

Dikes built in that vicinity were all
washed out by the fiood of a few weeks

been abandoned.
At Iola tho Neosho is five miles wide

All the bottom lands have been flooded

Passenger Trains Tied Up.
A passenger train Js tied up at Clem

Important Questions Which
Now Agitate Democracy -of

State Convention Will Convena at H
Weis'er Monday, and a Lively
Time Is Looked For. H
Special to Tho Tribune. jH
WEISER. Ida., June 4. There Is
already a gala appearance at IH
Weiscr In anticipation of the H
Democratic State convention IH
here Monday. A large steamer contain- IH
ing the words. "Welcome to Idaho's jH
Democrats," stretches across the main jH
street, and there are many decorations 1 H
on business houses. United States Sena- H
tor Fred T. Dubois and his private H
secretary, C. E. Arncy. arrived this IH
evening and were met at the depot by J
Mayor Von Sicklen and committee, who H
extended a cordial welcome to Idaho's H
senior Senator. He was escorted to his IH
rooms at the Vendome. ' fl
Interest In the convention centers in
first, the personnel of the delegation; . H
second, will It instruct, and for whom? Il
third, who will be national committee- .jH
man, and fourth, what will the resolu- ill
Hons contain on the Mormon question? ijH
The concensus of opinion is that no ll
objection of any moment will appear to ll
the Ada county resolutions on the Mor- H
mon question. Theue are presumed lH
to voice Dubois's Hentlments, and it is H
paid the Mormon delegates will indorse
them. Fearing opposition on their part jB
would cause much stronger declara- H
tlons. There Is a large element of rndl- H
cals who favor disfranchisement reso- H
There will be a lively contest for dele- H
gates, and Senator Dubois Ih sure to H
head the delegation. It looks like Halt- H
feld for national committeeman, and JH
this may be left to the delegation to St. H
Louis to select. jH
Hon. John B. Goodc of Kootenai is IB
mentioned prominently for temporary H
and Hon. Charles H. Jackson of Ada,for IB
permanent chairman. H
