SPECIAL TELEGRAMS FROM LIVE WRITERS PME OF COVERING THE NEWS OF THE DAY AND ALL CLAIM THAT SURETY COMPANY IS A M. O. F. SCHEME. TO GO SECURITY FOR HEINZE Supreme Court Will Give One More Hearing in the Case—Question as to Whether Court Must Accept Their Paper, Even After It Is Approved by the State Auditor. (Special to Inter Mountain.) Helena. Slay 23.—The supreme court overruled the motion of the Montana Ore Purchasing company to set aside the findings of Clerk Rickerts in disapprov ing the $330.000 bond in the Pennsylvania case, but gave leave to the parties to appear next Monday and give reasons why it should or should not approve the bond. This is in view of the corrected statement and license of the Delaware Surety company, filed since Clerk Rick erts acted on the bond. When the question again comes up it will be whether the court is bound to a< - cept the bond of any surety company licensed by the state auditor, or whether it may compel such company to qualify in the same way as a personal surety, regardless of license. Investigation into the case has shown that Franklin Bien, the New York at torney for the Montana Ore Purchasing company, has admitted that the Dela ware Surety company is his project, or ganized mainly to give bonds in Montana for his clients. Bien was also incor porating the Lincoln Surety company to perform the same service when the Delaware company has exhausted its capital and surplus In this way. The Boston & Montana will undertake to show that the Delaware company was only organized after other surety com panies had declined to write the bond for Heinze. It is also claimed that it is organized under the new state law, which is declared unconstitutional by the leading corporation lawyers.

Dillon Jury Finds That Duckworth Was Too Free in His Use of a ; Branding Iron. j 1 (Special to Inter Mountain.) Dillon, May 23.—The case of the state j of Montana vs. Lyman B. Duckworth consumed all day yesterday in the dis- | trict court. The defendant was charged ; with grand larceny in changing the J brands on three mares, the property of ! Matt Johnson, from a crow foot to a ' pistol. The proof offered by the state ! was very strong, the horses having been \ found by a stock inspector in a corral i along with other horses belonging to j Duckworth, with the brands showing signs of being changed at a recent date. 1 The defendant denied having claimed the horses, and said that he knew noth ing concerning their branding. The case was given to the jury at 5 o'clock, and it was nearly ten when a verdict was an- j pounced. On being brought Into court , the jury rendered a verdict of guilty as charged, and the punishment was left to the discretion of the court.

AMONG BIRDS AND ANiMALS The Gifted Writer and Naturalist Beautifully Describes the Habits of Creatures That Add to the Splendor of This World—Rather Small Audi ence for Such Refined Discourses. ; j j Butte stands discredited for the man ner in which she has treated Ernest Seton-Thompson, the famous naturalist, writer and lecturer, who appeared here yesterday afternoon and evening. In ev ery city he has visited crowded houses have been his wlcome. It was deemed certain that, even if Butte does not ex tend the glad hand to intellectual pas times as a frequent habit, it would in j this instance, as the lecturer was so well known, through his stories of wild ani mals. Wherever possible Mr. Thompson has I apeared under the auspices of the feder- j ated clubs or the city federation of clubs. His advance man consulted the fédéra- j tion here, but the members thought the j time too short to properly advertise it, | and refused to take it up. Then plucky ; Mrs. Newill, chairman of the social and i domestic department of the Woman's | club, thought she saw a chance to make \ some money for the college extension ' work. So she guaranteed the amount necessary to bring him here, and, with Mrs. A. H. Wethey, started in. She worked as hard as a beaver, seeing to advertising, selling tickets; here, there and everywhere they went. And the re sult— Yesterday afternoon there was a scant handful of adults, and the children who have read and raved over his delightful stories, where were they? Any place but the opera house. Just 30 children in the house arid 12 of them in a box party given by little Miiss Hodgens. Last night the attendance was also very light. It is to be honed for the sake of the two women who tried so hard to give Butte a rare treat that many purchased tickets who did not come. Otherwise they will have lost heavily. It will be a lesson perhaps to other ambitious club women, and yet. see the money made on the Leonora Jackson concert. Nearly $300 cleared. This sue Strong Again.

Mr. Thompson is as ready and easy a talker as his stories would indicate. He speaks in an offhand, free manner which captivated everyone, in most instances when one meets an author of fame it is_ a grevious disappointment. Mr. Thomp son is the exception to prove the rule. He took up many of the animals all ar« familiar with through his books. He told almost entirely new tales. Dainty 'Molly Cotton Tail" went through vari^j ous adventures to meet with a pitiful death. His dog "Ranger" figured in sev- } eral stories. And ' 'Dingo," faithful; "Bingo," was shown as he lay dead atl the cabin door, his nose on the threshold he was never to cross again. The tragedies of the woods and plains, the pacing mustang who preferred death to imprisonment, the rabbit killed by the horned owl, the death of the red deer and the stag were of absorbing interest. The escape of "Rags" from the jaws of the blacksnake and the heroism of his mother, "Molly oCtton Tail," the battle of the stags, and many kindred tales were related. All were illustrated, and the tales he wove with no foundation but seemingly aimless tracks in the snow, out Sherlockfd any Holmes in the world. He gave the notes and calls of the birds, the moose call and other signals used by birds and animals, and illus trated the results attained in using them. They were all good, all full of life and coloring, and when the lecturer left the stage it was with reluctance the en thralled audienec arose to leave the theater.
