BCTTE, Mont., July 2S. Great excite
ment was aroused here yesterday by the
arrest of three men, charged with the mur
der of W. J. Penrose on June 10 last. The
men arrested are all prominent in labor
circles V. E. Deeney, vice president of
the Silver Bow Trade and Labor Assem
bly, president of the Butte Vorkingmen's
union, and a member of tin Miners' un
ion; Eugene E. Kelly, secretary of tbe
Trade and Labor assembly, and formerly
secretary of the Miners' union; Phil
Hickey, past secretary of the Miners'
union, and a member of that organization.
The Detectives Theory.
The detectives have worked on the
theory that Penrose had been killed by la
bor men, whom he had abused in his paper.
Detective Ryan worked himself around as
a miner and labor advocate, and secured
board with Mn Mary Kelly, mother of
Kelly. Thus he became intimate with
both Kelly and Deeney, who room together
there. He went around with them about
town. Meanwhile other detectives had
been working up other clews, and the re
sult is a lot of eireunistantial evidence
which the detectives considered sufficient
to warrant the arrest.
The Arrest of the Accused.
On Saturday morning Sheriff Lloyd
went overdo Helena and obtained requisi
tion papers for Phil Hickey, who had
moved to Boise, Idaho, soon after the
murder. Hickey was arrested at 11 a. m.
and at 12 Deeney and Kelly were arrested
aa they were coming out of tbe Acquisi
tion mine where ttiey work. When told
that they were placed under arrest neither
said anything or inquired what they were
arrested for. r
Said to Have Threatened Penrose.
Deeney and Hickey are said to have
made threats against Penrose on account
of articles written in his paper about
them and Hickey is said to have declared
that he would get even with Penrose be
fore he left the city. Hickey ran for city
marshal last spring, and was accused in
Penrose's paper of having sold out for a
few hundred dollars. The evidence col
lected by tLe detectives is substantially as
follows: A. T. Allen, of Helena, is re
ported to have picked Deeney and Kelly
out in a crowd as the two men he saw at
the corner of Montana and Galena streets
a few minutes before the murder was
Putting This and That Together.
It is also claimed that the irou found in
the billy is similar to that used in the Ac
quisition mine, aud that the shovel handle
from which the wood of the billy was cut
has been fuund near the Acquisition mine.
Another point is that the three men ar
rested are identified as having bouuht
black cloth and cord a day or two before
SOME PERNICIOUS FOREIGNERS.
Causht Violating tbe Contract Labor Law
Alleged Prominent Suspects.
CniCAGO, July 28. Immigrant Inspec
tor Stitch, after a careful investigation,
has secured evidence that an Italian
named Casimo, a railway section fore
man from Iowa, in conuccttan with David
Fallone, of 37 Desplaines street, thiscity,
has been for some time violating the alien
contract labor law ad shipping Italians
from this city to work on Iowa railways
at So cents per day.
How They Did the Work.
It seems that Casimo and his partner
had been been connected with Italian rail
ways as foremen aud in similar positions,
and knew right where to send for men.
They quietly sent money and tickets for
passage to persons in their native country,
and so soon as the men arrived here, in
small batches, they were forwarded to
Iowa and put to work -along the railways
there. How many have thus been run
into the country is not known, but it is
believed that they run away up into the
hundreds. The worst feature of this case
is the well-grounded suspicion that prom
inent railway officials are implicated, but
on this point Mr. Stitch is reticent, lie is
waiting for further evidence.

Cumberland, Md., July 28 Sunday an

brought about 1,200 people to this city on
a pleasure trip. They left at night at 6:)

some drunken men on the platform of one
of the cars, to quell which James Kelly, a
policeman from Johnstown, drew a re

' aud they made a rush for him and forced
him between the cars while the train was
