STRUCTURE WILL NOT BE USED Chairman of County Commissioners Calls Attention to Dangerous Con dition of the Rear Wall—It May Collapse at Any Moment—Two Men Charged With Forgery. (Special to Inter Mountain.) Billings, May 14.—The chairman of the board of county commissioners has in struoted the janitor not to permit any more public gatherings in the court room whh the exception of the Baptist church services, owing to the condition of the rear wall of the court house, which is I considered unsafe. For some time it has 1 been known that tlie rear wall was g'v ing way from the building on the west side. Investigation reveals the fact that not only is this so, but that the founda tion is crumbling away and that portion of the house is considered unsafe, The greatest difference is noted in the office of the superintendent of public in struction, on the second floor. Here the wall has bulged out from the floor for a distance of about two inches, and the walls and ceiling are badly crack'd. Just what action the county commis sioners expect to take relative to the proper precaution other than that al ready stated is not known, but some thing will probably be done at the meet ing in June.

ISRAEL PUTNAM'S WOLF HUNT OUTDONE ^ ^ _ j ""suited in the death of pound bruin in Forkner's uulen GIRL WHO MARRIED NEGRO SHUNNED BY HER RELATIVES Philadelphia, May 13.—Mrs. Howard Lee. once Miss Mary Bethell, who severed family ties and aristocratic society to wed a negro, declares she is quite contented. She has a comfortable fortune, the inheri tance received from her father, Dr. Charles Bethell, who was once a promi nent physician here. She lives now with her negro husband in a cottage not far from Hammonton, N. J. She was reared by an uncle, John C. Uhle, a well-known lawyer of the old school. He lives in a fine old mansion at No. 4113 Pine street, and there Mary Bethell had a home of comfort and even luxury. "It is a painful subject lo me," said Mr. Uhle to-night. "We have never been able to fathom this strange infatuation of my niece for a negro, and we never ex pect to see again this woman who chose exile. "We have no further interest in her af fairs. Her name is never mentioned by those who once loved her as a daughter." A dispatch from Granite, Oregon says: The taie of Israel Putnam's wolf hunt, m which the brave revolutionary partiot went into a cave occeupied by a furious beast and shot the animal by the "glare of its own eyes," is outdone by a hunt a 700 flfteen miles west of Granite, last Sunday. A party of four men, Jim Ross, Bert Ran ney, Mart Dickinson and Charley Dlm mick, started out early in the morning to explore a cave that Ross had found dur ing the winter, and which he declared contained a bear as big as a horse. Ross is an old bear hunter, and his record for grizzlies is a long one, while Ranney also has a bear record not to be sneezed at. Dickinsin and Dimmiek were novices. The cave was reached about 10 o'clock in the morning. It is a wonder in itself being situated in the face of an almost perpendicular cliff of limestone that stands up 100 feet high. It was reached by crowling up the side of the bluff, the hunters hanging to growths of scrub trees. At the entrance, which was so small that the men had to crawl to get through were tracks and other signs that the bear was a large one. Ross and Ranney crawled in, while the others decided to remain outside. The hunters who entered the cavep roceeded about twenty feet, when the passage opened and widened out to a space twenty feet square, which had no outlet except the holeb ywhich the menh had entered. Theis eyes had scarcely grown accus tomed to the gloom when they say bruin. They took careful aim and Ross counted three. Then they fired. There was a terrific roar and them en made a rush for the passage. Ranney crawled out side and waitedf or Ross, who did not appear. Ranney then went back and found Ross standüvng over the dead bear, both shots having taken effect The bear had not died at once, but overtook Ross as he was endeavoring to crawl from the den. Ross cut himselfl ooose with his bowie knife. The four hunters dragged the bear to the mouth of the cave and rolled his carcass down the bluff. It was taken to the camp and weighed andtipped 700 pounds. LADIES APPRECIATE.
