INTER MOUNTAIN'S
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.

GUILTY OF CHANG ING BRANDS !
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. Defendant's

STORY OF NATUBE
ERNEST SETON THOMPSON DE

The Gifted Writer and Naturalist

Creatures That Add to the Splendor
of This World—Rather Small Audi

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

cess was made because the music de
partment, one and all, worked hard,^
while in this case two did the work.
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.
