The parties to the contract are William Commins and Em nia Jane Roberts, aged 3S and -3 years re spectively. in all of the marriages by the custom ary form returns have to be made to the court by the officiating officers, and In each case the return is copied on a stub attached to the regular license. This is kept on file for reference. It is a well known fact that several couples are living together in Butte un der the common law form, but the cer tificate filed by Mr. and Mills.

IT WAS M ISTAKE N IDENTITY Mrs. Tracey Was Placed in an Embar rassing Position—Friends Vouch For Her. During the recent G. A. R. encamp ment in this city a woman who claimed to be a member of the Relief corps fleeced several members of the Grand Army posts of the city and surrounding towns and decamped far parts unknown. Mrs Emerson Tracey, a lady visiting in this city, aifl who called upon the old soldiers at their encampment, departed from Butte about the same time. By some means known only to the strange chances of rumor, the acts of the con fidence woman were attributed to Mrs. Tracey. The story went into print re flecting upon the person who was guilty, and the public appears to have been unable to distinguish the real cul prit from Mrs. Tracey, who, the G. A. R. men say, was entirely trustworthy in her dealings with members of the post here. P. H. Manchester, a prominent Grand Army man, has investigated the matter with a view of clearing up the peculiar case of mistaken Identity, ' and is authority for the statement that a very grave injustice was done an in ^oaoooooaooooc&aoaoaoooaaafj P.

DEATH DUE TO STRYCHNINE Coroner's Jury Decides 'mat Sydney B. Bull Took Poison to End His Life. The jury empaneled by Coroner John son to enquire into the death of Sydney B. Bull met last night at Sherman's un dertaking establishment and after hear ing the evidence, decided that Bull had committed suicide by taking strychnin". Fred Gagnier, who had known Bull for eigh years, testified that he was a sob n r and industrious man but of late had been despondent because of ill health. Dr. Schwartz caused amazement by holding the bottle of strychnine found near Bull to his lips and tasting the con tents. The astonishment was increased when the physician stated that ope tmth of a grain is deemed a fatal dos •. . - added that if the bottle had been lull, the quantity Bull swallowed, was sufficient to kill every man, woman and chid in Meaderville. Dr. Schwartz was asked if the patent medicines Bull had been using for a long period prior to his death, might not have induced melancholia. The doctor repli d that he could not answer definitely be cause he did not know the kind of med - cine the man had been taking. He add. 1 that as a usual thing, such decoctions are Injurious. "I will say this," he remarked, '1 11 .■ man selected a good poison, whatever may have been his error about a choir ■ of medicines." Bull was a native of Canada, aged 37 years. He is survived by several brothers and sisters in British Columbia, a cousin, T. C. Miles, living just beyond the Silver Bow mine in Butte, and a dis tant relative, Mrs. Van Wart, of No. 411 Dakota street. The funeral of the d - ceased was held this afternoon at 2:29 o'clock from the undertaking rooms . r Sherman, in East Park street. in LEW STEIN IN A SUIT ACCUSES IKE HEILBRONNER. A PARTNERSHIP QUARREL Claims Funds of the Cigar and Bawl ing Business in East Broadway Have Been Misappropriated—Says the Books Contain False Entries— A Considerable Amount Involved. Lew Stein brought suit against Ike Heilbronner, in the district court, today, to compel the defendant to render him an accounting in the cigar and bowling alley business which Heilbronner hus been conducting in East Broadway. The complaint in the case Is a warm on. from several points of view. In his complaint Stein accuses Ileii bronner of having appropriated receipts of the business to his own use and shad ing the transactions with false entries in the books. One item alleged to hal - be en diverted in this manner is said to be $3,000 and another $8<? Stein alleges that July 1, 1900, Heil bronner and Thomas Denoon engaged in the cigar and bowling alley business at 23 East Broadway. Under the terms of the agreement it is said Heilbronner was to receive $300 per month for his ser vices and S5 per cent of the profits of the business* and Denoon was to get $150 per month and 15 per cent of tin profits. On January 1 the agreement was modified in such a way that Denoon was to receive 25 per cent of the receipts for six months. This agreement encoun tered no faults until April 10, when Heil bronner, it is claimed, refused to jjermit Denoon to further carry out the con tract. I On January 1. says the complaint, iDe tioon sold to him his interest and sine,' then Heilbronner, he says, has handled all the receipts, deposited them in his own name and has applied to his own use from the funds large sums of money: that on August 25 of last year he appro priated $3.000 and applied it on a per sonal indebtedness at the Silver Bow National bank, and on the some dan made a $3.000 false entry in the books: that on the 5th of November, 1900, ho took $80 from the cash drawer and left a tab for $70 in its place. Stein also says that on January 1 Heilbronner rendered him a false ac count of the 15 per cent profits which Denoon was to receive from July 1 to January 1, stating, it is claimed, the I Denoon's share was not more than $350. In this connection Stein says he be lieves the 13 per cent aggregated $1.350. and that the total profits between July 1 of last year and January 1 of this year were $9.000, and that they aggregate 1 $6,000 between January 1 and May 1. © m e Two New Invoices of Sterling Silver and eut Glass There have never been finer goods in the entire west than are included in this shipment.

A few months before the death of Father Boyle, of Washington, D. C., he built a missionary chapel down by the navy yard, and bought at a junkshop an old hell which had lieeii discarded by one of ehe Presbyterian churches. He sent the bell to a foundry in George town and had several inches of metal pared off the rim to get rid of a crack, and the harsh and discordant tones of the bell became short and sweet. Meet ing a Presbyterian parson not long aft er, Father Boyle called his attention to the change, and the latter could scarcely believe it was the same hell. "What in the world did you do with that boll." inquired the Presbyterian pastor, "to cause such a change in the tone?" "We blessed it and blessed it and blessed it until we got the Presbyterian devil out of if," re torted Father Boyle, "and then it sounded all right."
