Got Their Price and Bid Not Care Who
Paid It— English Tress
(By Associated Press.)
New York, May 8.—Commenting upon
S. Pierpont Morgan's trans-Atlantic
shipping operations, the London corres
pondent of the Tribune says of the pub
lished agreement for the purchase of
the controlling interest in the Leyland
The general meeting of stockholders
which approved it was a good humored
assemblage, and it was evident that
whatever might be the lamentations of
the press on the subject, those pres
ent appreciated the excellent bargain
they had made.
Mr. Morgan is in a fair way to revo
lutionize the English science of politi
cal economy, even if he not yet demon
strated how English built and manned
fleets can be admitted to American reg
Istt y and.subsidized as the London press
asserts will be done.

Machinists Take Part in the National
Movement for Shorter Day and
Better Pay.
(Special to the Inter Mountain.)
Great Falls, May 8.—The Great North
ern repair shops have been ordeied
closed on account of the strike of forty
men for better wages. The company re
fused to grant their demands.
All the machinists of the Montana
Central at this point went out on a strike
• a 10 o'clock yesteday morning. A num
ber of blacksmiths and earepnters also
went out. Sixteen machinists were laid
oft' Monday night, which was just half
the force employed here, and there are
probably 50 men out.
The strikers maintain that every ma
chinist on the line between Havre an l
Butte is out and that the number
amounts to about 4U0, but from what i
could be learned, 1UU would be nearer. j
The cause of the trouble is the demand |
of the men for shorter hours and more
pay than at present. The machinists
who struck were getting $3 per day for
.10 hours' work and walked out for nine
hours and $3.50.
Case of Mistaken Identity in California
—Have the Wrong Man in
(By Associated Press.)
Pueblo, Colorado, May 8.—Walter E.
Dickson, a pharmacist here, was raised
from boyhood at San Jose, California,
■and one of his associates was James C.
"Dunham, the alleged murderer now
wanted at that place. Mr. Dickson was
also connected with the Baldwin Drug
(company during the time that the sus
pect. Charles F. C'rill, now at San Jose,
lived in Pueblo. At that time Mr. Crill
had a running account at the drug
store. Mr. Dickson has been watching
the caje carefully and has sent a tele
gram to William Gussfelt, a merchant of
San Jose, California, and a personal
friend, saying:
"Know Dunham and Crill personally.
Not the man."
Mr. Dickson says the reseniblnace be
tween Dunham and Crill is striking, but
that having known both men intimately
lie will unhesitatingly take oath that
Crill is an altog- ther different individual
from the alleged murderer Dunham.

Mayor Davey Giving His
Ear to Office Seekers.
They were an impatient and disap
pointed lot—those office seekers about the
city hall this afternoon. They were
looking for Mayor Davey, but he came
not. There was a reason for it. too.
Mayor Davey was, nursing his rheuma

short while simply for the sake of his
A Newsboy Thinks the Pictures of the
New Police Official Plat
ter Him.
Chief of Police James M. Reynolds re
ceived a verbal plexus polt Monday even
ing, from the effects of which he has not
vet entirely recovered. His assailant was
i not a person w ith large biceps, but there
j was sufficient force behind the blow to
| cause jt to hurt. Moreover it landed on
a tender spot.
Reynolds was standing in front of the
Chequamegon about 7 o'clock Monday
evening chewing the end of a cigar and
wondering where to put in his time until
the first meeting of the new council- A
passing newsboy glanced at Reynolds
and then paused to survey him critically.
He saw something that interested him
and excitedly called to another, small
newspaper vender on the other side of
the street.
"Hey, Chimrny, come here quick," he
yell d, "I got something to tell you."
"Chimrny," rushed across the street at
once. The toy who had surveyed Rey
nolds so critically now pointed to him and
in a sibilant whisper, that could be
heard forty feet distant, said: "See that
guy standing there? He's going to be the
next chief of police."
"Huh, grunted the other lad, "how do
you know that?"
"How do I know it? Well say: here's
his inug in the Inter Mountain. Ain t that
a cinch?"
The little skeptic took the paper and
looked closely at the picture of Reynolds,
was was amusedly listening, without ap
pearing to do so. Then the boy chang
ed his position and got a good look at
"Well," he finally admitted, "that
picture does look some like the guy,
"Fatty," but I think you're a dead loser.
That fellow ain't near as good looking as
this here picture in the Inter Mountain.'
Reynolds immediately had business to
attend to. The humorous side of the sit
uation appeared to him later. Now he
tells the story on himself with evident
Charged With Bobbery.
A complaint charging Hugh Downey,

Olsen's court. The two latter are not
under arrest, but the former Is in jail.
It is alleged that on April 29 the de

A Centerville Couple Looking for a
Divorce Beturn to Their Home
Thoroughly Beconciled.
"Now. you stop chewing the rag and
come right along and get your divorce if
you want it. I'll sign it for you."
The speaker was a little Centerville
woman and she addressed her remarks to
her husband, who had hesitated at the
foot of the stairway leading to the second
story of the county court house. They
had come all the way from the hill town
to be divorced, on five minutes' notice
and talked back and forth at each other
en route, but they did not seem to be
very mad.
When the woman said "come along."
the man started and then slowly climbed
the stairway of the big building. When
they reached the landing above they in
dulged in more talk and then proceeded
along the corridor to the count)* attor
ney'^ office. The man stepped In first
and inquired for Mr. Breen. The woman
followed and shyly stepped over towards
one corner.
"He Is not in just now," said Mr. Fits

"Can I do anything for you?" .. ..
"Yes; he wants a divorce and. I am
willing he should have it,", exclaimed
the woman. "He thinks if he did not
have a wife he would have more liberty
and if he wants to chase around I will
give him a chance."
Just then Mr. Breen entered the room
and escorted the couple into his private
office. Once the door flew partly open,
from some unknown cause and there
came through the opening a woman's
voice that sounded like this: "Clear out
of my sight and never let me see you
again! I never want to see you! Go
your way and I'll go-"
Just then someone shut the door.Ten
minutes later the curtain fell and the ac

as happy as if they had just been mar

up the trouble between them.

Great Financial Scoop for Tears—Wall
Street Amazed at the Magnitude
of the Baal.
(By Associated Press.)
New York, May 8.—Wall street > was
simply amazed when the fact was finally
driven home to the brokers that the
common stock of the Northern Paci
fic railway was closely cornered. That
there had been a heavy short interest in
the property all the street knew on Mon
day night, but that an actual close
corner could be worked on a property
with $80,000,000 of securities outstanding
seemed incredible and would not have
been believed but for the demonstration
in the loan crown late in the day-.
At the Waldorf last evening it was re
ported that five hundred shares of the
stock had beenn bought by a affrighted
speculator at 160. or 16 1-2 points above
the closing on the exchange. Meetings
were held all day yesterday and late
last night by the most important men
identified with the different factions in
terested in Northern Pacific, but so far
as could be ascertained no definite con
clusions were reached.
Prof. Eastman, the Harvard
Instructor Held For Murder.
(By Associated Press.)
Cambridge, Mass., May 8.—Prof. East
man was again on the stand today to
testify in his own behalf on the charge
of murdering his brother-in-law, Grogan.
There was not, however, much more
than he gave yesterday, being mostly
cross-examination as to the story of the
death of Grogan.
The whole case will hinge on the iden
tity- of the bullet which was found in
Grogan's body, and which caused his
death. Eastman had a rim fire revolver
in the fatal target shooting, and Grogan
a center-fire weapon. The bullet was
again presented in corut, and a strong
fight will be made by both sides to es
tablish its identity.
Professor Charles R. Eastman, a pro
fessor of zoology in Harvard university,
is on trial for shooting and killing his
brother-in-law, Richard Grogan, Jr., on
July 4 last. The two men had married
6isters. daughters of the late Alvin Clark,
the great lensmaker, whose work Is
known all over the country.
They -had been In the yard back of the
Clark house on the morning in question
engaged in target practice. When Gro
gan fell he accused Eastman of murder
ing him, and latter told a professional
nurse, whose testimony to that effect
has been offered in court, "It was not an
accident; he murdered me."
Women and jealousy play their part
In this strange tale. The family com
plications must be understood before any
light is east on the strange affair.
Alvin G. Clark was a wealthy optical
instrument maker of Boston, who devel
oped such expertness in grinding lenses
that his talents were in demand in all
parts of the world. Hns crowning work
was the manufacture of the great lense
for the Lick telescope, placed at the fa
mous observatory in California. Clark
Amassed a large fortune and died In July
He had three daughters, highly edu
cated and refined girls. They moved In

(Special to Ipter Mountain.)
Helena, May 8.—As a result of the
financial crash caused by the failure of
the Merchants' National bank, Leroy
Beveridge finds himself along liable to be
required to satisfy the bond given to in
demnify the late county treasurer. Eu
gene S. French, for the county funds lost
in the bank.
A bond for $100,000 was given by L. H.
Hershfield, Aaron Hersjhfleld, I. L. Israel,
A. J. Davidson, T. P. Bowman and Bev
eridge: but Hershfield, Israel and David
son have lost all. Bowman Is dead and
Beveridge alone has been making money,
having been in Alaska, and inherited a
fortune from his wife.
The county has sued the bondsmen for
$11,566.66 balance due, and Beveridge has
filed a demurrer alleging that the bond
was not given to the county, but to
French individually.
the best society in Cambridge and Bos
The eldest girl Caroline, nine years ago
married Eastman, a western man about
whose history- little, if anything. Is
known in the east. He was well educated
and became a tutor at Harvard. The
match was bitterly opposed by Mr. Clark,
though he afterward became reconciled
to his son-in-law.
The second daughter, Elizabeth, elop
ed with Richard H. Grogan, Jr., son* of
a wealthy Boston speculator, who mov
ed in the young "Back Bay" set. "Dick"
Grogan was a Harvard man, universally
popular, and the marriage was confident
ly asserted to be a love match.
The youngest daughter, Mary Theo
dora, became the wife of Sumner Ros3
Hollander, son of one of Boston's mer
chant princes. Although this man was
a millionaire in his own right, he didn't
suit the father of Mary Theodora, and
they had been married some months be
fore anyone knew it.
The legal features of the case have
been almost as remarkable aB the "heart
intent." When Eastman was held for
the preliminary examination before the
local court, the evidence was practically
the same that has been offered at the
trial. But the judge found that there
was not sufficient reason to hold East
man and he was discharged to the aston
ishment of the legal fraternity and the
This would have been the end of the
case had not the grand jury itself taken
a hand. They disregarded the findings
of the lower court, something almost
unprecendented In the legal annals of
Massachusetts, found an indictment,
and the case has recently come to trial.
It is the curious custom in the Middle
sex county court to keep criminal de
fendants against murder charges in a
quaint steel cage, and there Professor
Eastman sits day after day, listening to
the evidence, and matntainii«? a cod,
undisturbed demeanor.
