TO PROBE COUNTERFEITING
B. W. Bell Arrives Front San Fran

Spurious Coins in Montana—Visits
Dougherty at the County Jail—Much
Crooked Work in the State.
B. W. Bell, a secret service officer, ar
rived in the city last evening from the
const, having been ordered here by the
authorities at Washington to investi
gate the charges of counterfeiting
against William Dougherty and several
others arrested here within the last few
days in connection with the circulation
of spurious, gold pieces.
Tills morning Mr. Hell visited the coun
ty jail and had a talk with Dougherty.
After the conversation was over he said
that no trouble would be experienced in
convicting the prisoner on three separ
ate counts. While in the jail the officer
took a description of Dougherty and
expressed the belief that he had seen him
in Texas, which is a part of Mr. Bell's
district. Dougherty denied having been
in that state at any time in his career.
"Billy," said the officer, putting his face
close to the bars of the cage, "I have
been told that you never alk.st' any man
to run over you."
"That is correct," replied Dougherty,
his steel grey eyes Hashing fire. "No
man can poke a gun in my face and not
get at least one bullet from me."
AVhen the officer came out of the jail
he said Dougherty was a had man all
right, but he would not last long in Tex
"Some one's 45 would get action on
him pretty quick down there," he added.
"As to the other men charged with
counterfeiting," continued the officer,
"they will be discharged, as there is
nothing against them, but I surmise that
Dougherty will be sent up for a long
FLED TO ESCAPE ROBBERS
Julius Hanson Tells a Stranger the
Time and Is Chafed to His
"Will you kindly oblige me by tell
ing me the time of night?"
"Certainly," answered obliging Julius
Hanson in response to the request which
was made Wednesday night by a well
dressed and gentlemanly appearing
stranger, "it is now 10 minutes after 10."
"Thank you," said the stranger.
Five minutes later Hanson was run
ning at a lively clip, In order to save
his money and valuables from the hands
of the same courteous gentleman who
wished to know the time of night.
Hanson is employed at tin» Butte pool
rooms and also at Ferrell & Co's, cigar
Store, in Main street. H lives at No.
525$4 South Montana street, and was on
his way home when the attempted hold
tip occurred. The request for the time
was made of him while he was on Mon
faîTa slreet, about one and one-half
blockâefrom his home.
After receiving the answer the strang
er followed Hanson down the street,
keeping about three or four paces be
hind. Hanson thought that rather queer
particularly when the stranger gave a
low whistle. That was enough and
Hanson broke Into a run.
As he did so a man jumped out from
behind Tuite's marble works and called
him to stop. Instead of stopping Han
son ran faster and finally fell into one
of several ditches in that part of the
street. He regained his feet and con
tinued on his run toward his home. The
men called to him to halt but he could
not see ti that way.
Finally the men abandoned the chase
and Hanson reached home breathless.
Had the robbers caught him he would
have lost $60 belonging to the pool rooms
and $40 of his own money. Hanson is
unable to give the police a good de
scription of the men who tried to hold

Judge McClernan and the county com

discussed the matter of a location for

view, one of which is Carpenter's Union
hall, just opposite the county building,
and the other is in the silver Bow block.
Both will be inspected with a view to
determining their fitness for court pur
The judge told the commissioners he
would be ready for work in a few days

would be agreeable to him.
The addition of a new department to

DR. ALEXANDER'S ANNUAL RE
PORT OF BIRTHS AND DEATHS.
ACCOUNTS NEARLY BALANCE
Physicians May and May Not Get
Their Pay for Reporting Deaths to
Health Office—A Sort of a Hoodoo
Attaches Itself to Dr. Alexander's
Dr. J. Newton Alexander, the local
health officer, is evidently riot a pleas
ing person so far as the city hall offi
cials are concerned. His annual report
which was filed with the city clerk las:
Wednesday evening and now rests in a
receptacle prepared for such documents
on the clerk's desk, has been labicd
"Communication and alleged report of J.
Newton Alexander, Health Officer, Rela
tive to Reports of Doctors and their
This "alleged" report of the health
officer appears genuine enough on its
face from a statistical point of view.
If the word ''alleged" is not permitted
to cast a shadow of doubt on the au
thenticity of its contents, «t certainly
furnishes information of interest to the
public. The document is prefaced with
the following statement;
"According to requests I herewith pre
sent the dates of certificates of physi
cians from December 1. 1899, to April 1 ,
1901. It has been customary to rendes
these quarterly, but owing to delinquen
cies in the receipt of reports I decided
upon issuing warrants annually, thus
facilitating convenience as well as ob
viating incorrect entries in the records
of births and deaths."
While the death rate "alleged" in the
report is unusually large, the record of
births comes near forming a balance to
it. The number of deaths occurring in
the period specified was 636; the number
of births, 456; the number of cases of
contagious diseases reported, 79; and the
number of still births, 34.
According to law a physician re
ceives 50 cents for every case of the
kinds specified which he reports to the
health officer. This system is carried
out in order to make the physicians
take an active interest in furnishing the
health officer with statistics. According
to the present report the total number
of cases reported was 1,225, making
$612. 50 due the physicians. If the report
is accepted by the city council at its
meeting next Monday evening, warrants
will be issued on the city treasury for
the several amounts due. It the report
is not adopted. Dr. Alexander and the
physicians making- the reports to him
will probably deem the word "alleged" a
A WOMAN ATTEMPTS SUICIDE
After Receiving a Beating From a Man
She Swallows Carbolic Acid—
She Will Recover.
Katie Lafontise, of No. 10 Little Ter
race, was so badly beaten by a male
caller last night, that she tried to de
part this world of trouble by the car
bolic acid route. She accuses Dick Mul
lins, who was fined for assaulting Will
iam Clark in the M. & M. saloon yes
terday, of causing her injuries. The po
licemen patroling the district where Mul
lins is generally seen have orders to
arrest him on sight.
The woman says that when Mullins
entered her place of abode he accused
her of being the cause of his arrest. She
denied the accusation and Mullins, sin;
says, locking the doors so that she could
not escape, gave her a merciless beating.
When she would try to get to the door
he would knock her down, she says.
In a fit of desperation she poured the
carbolic acid into a glass of beer and
swallowed it. In her excitement she
spilled a quantity of the acid on her
body and limbr. g^'ung to her pain.
Soon afterward her tormentor de
parted and her cries brought women
to her assistance. They gave her quan
tities of black coffee and tried in vain
to find a doctor. The girl is now be
yond danger, however. Her left eye
is black and swollen and her lips are
cut as a result of the blows she received.
She says her whole frame is sore fro n
