SUED THE DOCTOR FOR FEES Hospital Patient Wanted His Money Back—The Surgeon Lost the Case. Michael Oist, a Finnish miner, believed that Dr. Thomas J. Murray had violated a verbal contract relating to medical treatment for a gunshot wound, and not long ago filed suit against him in Justice Arnold's court for damages. After one of the most sensational hearings in a civil case known in the history of Butte, which lasted from 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon to 9 o'clock last evening, Jus tice Arnold decided that Oist was en. titled to damages in the sum of $20, the defendant physician to pay the costs of the suit. The judgment was rendered this morning. Oist, the plaintiff, was the first witness placed upon the stand. He swore that on last February 9 he was shot in the back in a saloon on Upper Main street by an unknown person, the bullet enter ing under the left shoulder blade and lodging in the right lung. With a great deal of difficulty he walked home and Cent for Dr. Murray. "Dr. Murray refused to treat the ease Unless I paid him $100 in advance," sail the witness. "I gave him the money and was sent to Murray & Freund's hos pital. Practically nothing was done for me for four days. At the expiration of that time Dr. Murray departed east and left me in the care of Dr. Freund. Th.s was a violation of the verbal contract ètitered into, by which it had beenagreeil that I was to be treated by Dr. Murray. Dr. Freund did little for me, and after Staying at the hospital for 21 days I left In disgust and conferred with Dr. Hari •on. "Dr. Hanson sent me to the St. James hospital, where he and Dr. Dogge oper ated on me. After staying there for about three weeks I was so much lm pt'oy, 1 that I was able to leave the insti tution. "Then I went to Dr. Murray and asked him for a return of part of the $100 I had given him. I told him he had vio lated his contract and that 1 had been allowed to drift into a dangerous condi tion. He had done nothing whatever fot me. and I told him so. He refused to return the money, and I brought a dam age suit for $300." Drs. Hanson and Dogge were both »worn. They testified in efTect that When Oist was taken to the St. James hospital he was in a very bad condition and in extreme danger of blood poison ing. They had no difficulty, they de clared, in locating the bullet, which was removed without any trouble. After ward about two gallons of pus and a mass of decayed lung tissue had to be cut out, as well as two ribs on the right side. It was their opinion that a little more delay would have resulted fatally to the patient. Dr. Murray, the first witness for the defense, swore that he had daily attend ed the patient and tried to extract the bullet prior to eastern Journey, which A rumor has been started in Butte to the effect that an effort is to be made by the Montana Ore Purchasing com pany to prevent the Miners' union from buying $50,000 worth of stock in the Amalgamated Copper company, a reso lution to which effect is said to have been passed at a meeting of the union a few days— ago. F. Augustus Heinze. who comes pretty m ar being the whole M. O. P., was seen today in regard to the rumor. "I think seme of the newspapers of this state ire going insane," said he. "Some of their statements are really libelous. They seem to have a Heinze craze. I would like to know what I have to do with the action of the Miners' union in buying stock in the Amalgamated! An >ther thing, the Miners' union did not buy stock in the Amalgamated. It passed a resolution to loan the old bank ing house of Paly. Donahue & Moyer the money to buy the stock and is to re ceive 8 per cent a year interest and all money the stock is worth in excess of $100 per share at the end of a year." j was necessitated by conditions brooking no delay, but had failed to locate it. Drs. Freund and Bernheim testified that everything possible had been done for Oist after the departure of Dr. Mur ray. They admitted that they had been unable to locate the bullet. In the answer filed to the suit Dr. Mur ray not only denied all the allegations made by Oist, but brought a counttr suit for $67, which he claimed was due for services rendered, not included In the advance payment. The verdict of Justice Arnold causes the counter suit to cease to be an issue. POSTMASTER IRVIN'S IDEAS. a Postmaster Greoge W. Irvin has made a hit with the treasury department offi cials at Washington. Several sugges tions he made to the officials regarding j tlie plan of the government building to i be located on the northeast corner of ! Copper and Main streets have evident- ! ly met with their approbation, as is evi- j denced by a letter which he received i to-day. Heretofore all postoffice buildings have ] teen constructed by the government i with the lobby running around next the j outer walls and the business* departments ; In the center. This arrangement has resulted in poor lighting necessitating the use of gas or electricity both day i and night. This artificial lighting re- J suits in a great deal of needless ex ptns.e and is hard on the eyes of em ployes. Postmaster Irvin, who is naturally a keen observer, took objections to the old style of architecture and decided that the lobby of the new building should be located in the center, thus affording the working departments plenty of light and pure air. He made a free hat: % drawing, embodying his ideas and sent it. tobether with a note of explanation, to the supervising architect of the treasury department at Washington. This morning he received the following answer; "Washington, D. C., April 30, 1901. ''The Postmaster. Butte, Mont.: Dear Sir—I am in receipt of your letter of the 23rd inst.. enclosing a free hand sketch showing a possible plan for the pnstofflee floor of the government build ing, which, it is proposed to erect in your city, and in reply I have to state that the mater will be given careful con sideration, and as many of your Ideas as are practicable will be utilized, "Respectfully. "J. K. TAYLOR. "Supervising Architect." Acording to the plans formulated by Postmaster Irvin the lobby will be a spacious affair, 90 feet long and 40 feet broad. C. R. Schlusser, the postofflee in spector for Montana, who is now act ing Inspector in charge at Spokane, head quarters of the division, is well pleased with the ideas advanced by the post master. Schlusser has, had a postofflee experience extending over many years and knows well the practical needs of postofflee officials. Senator Carter Will Be Here.

Augustus Heinze finished his tes timony in the controversy over the leases and bond on the Minnie Healey ntine last night, and this morning Miles Lin ien, who brought the suit against Heinze, to recover possession of the property, told a portion of his side of the storjr in connection with the deal. Judgjf Clancy, before whom the suit is beinjjj tried, listened intently to what Mr. Fi% len had to say. Up to the time Finlen began his story the procedings were dull, but Finlen fractured the monotony in a dozen egr more places. On one occasion he chaé* acterized Jack Hoy as a perjurer, whç had been paid good and plenty for hlj| evidence, adding to this allegation that A CURE FO R QUAC K DOCTORS Indian Medicine Man and His Pro fessional Healing Claims Punc tured by a Rifle Ball. (By Associated Press.) Tacoma, Wn., May 4.—The Yakima Indian tribe is excited over the murder of Chief Tenawashi, the oldest medicine man of that tribe. He was killed at his Kr home on the Yakima reservation, being shot in the back with a rille, as evinced by two bullet holes. The Indian agent and police believe that he was murdered because he failed to cure several cases of smallpox. he never talked to such men. He de nied many of the statements attributed to him by witnesses on the other side, told what he had said and of a prop osition made to him by the Heinze con tingent. "I went to the office," said the witness, ' "and found Mr McHatton there. He handed me a paper and told me to read it. I did so and he said it was for me to sign. I told him I would sign no paper until af ter I had an attorney examine it. At his suggestion we then went up to MacGin nis' office." , "How many written contracts did Judge McHatton show you?"asked Attor ney Walsh. • "Only one," was the reply,. "What transpired in MacGinniss' of fice?" "I was asked the reason why I would not assigned them, adding "why should I was because I desired to first show the document to Mr. Scallon. We talked the matter over for half an hour. I told them Anarchistic Riots in Spain. (By Associated Press.) London, May 4.—A serious riot Is re ported to have occurred Thursday in Barcelona. Two hundred anarchists in >i y .**-*r vaded a Oatalonists meeting and a ter rible fight followed. Revotvers and knives were used and many people were shot and otherwise wounded. Turmoil continued in the streets throughout the I was going east and that when I return ed I would have the agreement examined and that if it was all right I would then sign it. "In the meantime Heinze was to take the property and work it under my di rections for the purpose of locating the apex of the vein.. In reference to the transfer of the leases and bond, the witness said he had not assigned them, adding "only should I give away $75,000 without a scratch of the pen?'" Continuing, Finlen said that in either the latter part of January or early In February 1899 he met Judge McHatton near the Butte hotel, or Hennessy's store, and asked him if he had the agreement drawn up. McHatton said no, continued Finlen and I told him he need not draw it as the deal was off. Afterwards I saw MacGinniss in Helena and told him it was off. While in Helena I received a telephone message from W. W. Wishon informing me that Heinze was discharging my men at the mine and asking me what he should do about it. I told him to see Mr. Scallon and whatever course he advised should be pursued. As to the payment of the men emplayed at the mine, I never told anyone that arrangements other than those formerly in vogue should be pursued." Finlen said that Marcus Daly had nev er put any money into the property, but was interested with him in it. He also said he had not told Judge McHatton that Mr. Daly would let him have $90,000 with which to sink ithe shaft of the Min nie Healy 300 feet deeper. PROF. LEAMY TO RESIGN.
