LOCKED IN A PRISON CELL
Man Wanted by Anaconda Authorities
Captured by Chief Reynolds This
Morning — Officers Had Been
Searching for Suspect Since
July 3—His Victim Seri
After three days of search Chief of
Police Reynolds succeeded this morning
in locating Frank Boswalli, alias Depos
qual, the Anaconda Italian, who on the
night of July 3rd severely stabbed Frank
Rossle, a fellow countryman. In the lat
ter's cabin in the Copper City. Depos
qual was arrested and will be taken to
Anaconda today. He claimed that his
limited knowledge of the English lan
guage prevented him from entering with
a conversation with Chief Reynolds, but
upon being accused of having recently
arrived from Anaconda the wily little
foreigner knew enough English to deny
that he had ever been In that city. He
afterwards practically admitted his con
nection with the trouble at Anaconda.
A RARE, WARM WEATHER TALE
Refreshing Yarns About Snowbanks
of a Decade Ago—Wasted Street
"Talk about warm weather," said a
member of the court house prevarication
club during a recess in JJudge McCler
nan's court today, "this is warm, I'll ad
mit for this season of the year, but it
somehow reminds me of a siege we had
June 1st eleven years ago. I remember
it well. I was walking down Arizona
street shortly after dark and when be
tween Mercury and Galena a young duck
jumped out from behind a telegraph pole
•nd grabbed my watch. I tackled him
and we had it nip and tuck for a few
minutes. In the shuffle the timepiece
flew into the snow and I hauled the
young scamp up to It and picked it up.
Then I yelled 'police' like a thief, but
no policeman responded. I do not believe
there was one out of his rendezvous that
night. I held to my man a while and
then began giving him a lecture on the
course he was pursuing in life. Just as
I told him he ought to brace up and stop
his woolly ways he hit me a blow along
side the head and knocked me down."
"That must have made you warm,"
said the judge with a smile.
"Made me warm! No; it made me see
seven distinct brands of stars and caused
me to resolve that the next man who at
tempts to get away with my watch will
not receive a lecture from me."
And this cool way of relating cold
weather stories had a chilling effect upon
the atmosphere to such an extent that
the thermometer dropped several degrees
and a gale of laughter sprung up among
the amused spectators.
BOOMING TH E PICTU RE MARKET
Montana Money Sends Price of Paint
ings Beyond the Reach of Mor
The New York World tells of the recent
purchase of paintings by Senator W. A.
Clark of Butte. The World's story of an
auction of paintings is as follows:
The World correspondent hears on
what seems to be excellent authority,
that the exquisite Hoppner portrait of
Lady Louisa Manners dressed as a peas
ant, which was sold Thursday by auction
for the sensational figure of $73,662, was
bought for Senator Clark, of Montana.
But according to another report, for
which Duveen, the dealer who bought
the picture, is given as authority, he
purchased the picture as a speculation,
and Mr. Morgan and Mr. Yerkes are
bidding for the portrait which Duveen
declines to sell under $10,000 advance on
the price he paid.
Better Happners have been sold within
a few years for half the amount just
paid, but values have been enormously
raised by the buying by Morgan and

THE BUTTE BREWERY
252 North Wyoming.
Deposqual and Rossi had trouble over
money matters and after a dispute last
ing for some time, the two men, who
had been working together for a number
of months on the railroad section, began
a fistic encounter. Rossi, who was dis
covered by neighbors in a faint condition,
refused to go into details regarding the
affair but said that he was getting some
the best of his opponent in the fight when
the latter, seizing a fork from the table,
stabbed him in the abdomen, and neck
several times. Deposqual made his es
cape from the cabin and was not seen
again by any one who had known him
until this morning.
The Italian had evidently become hungry
and called at the section house of the
Great Northern railroad for something
to eat. Some of the employes recognized
the fugitive and, knowing that Chief
Reynolds wanted him, notified that offi
cial. Word was received from Anaconda
to the effect that Rossi, although serious
ly injured, has a good chance to survive
SWINDLED PRISON CONVICTS
Shabby Tricks Played Upon Men Be
hind Bars by Crooked Dealers
on the Outside.
"There are apparently some people in
this world who are too mean to live,"
said a well known Butte man to a re
porter this forenoon in the lobby of the
Thornton as he folded up an eastern pa
per. "Here I have been reading a story
in this paper that is published in Chi
cago. It is to the effevt that men who
reside in this state have robbed the con
victs in the penitentiary until measures
had to be taken to prevent the swindling.
How did they do it? Why they acted
as agents for the inmates of the prisons
and sold articles the convicts made, re
turning part of the money, sometimes,
and keeping the rest and in many cases
never making any returns at all. You
see the convicts make hair bridles and
other skillful creations and send them out
to people over the state whom they know
and depend upon the honesty of the re
cipients of their confidence to sell the
goods and return them the money.
"Now the men who sell Vne convicts
wares frequently swindle them and so
general has this practice become that S.
C. Ashby, clerk of the board of prison
commissioners as been appealed to to
straighten out the tangle. He has taken
steps to establish a rule that will place
the responsibiliy for all such acts where
it belongs and compel those who have
dealings with men behind prison bars to
respect the rules of common honesty in
their transactions with the men who
wear stripes. The story of the tricks
played upon the convicts by the men out
side the bars has traveled to the east
ern part of the country and is now being
published in eastern papers as a choice
bit of gossip and a character sketch of
the residents of this state. Its enough to
make a man want to shoot somebody.
And what a lesson it is for the convict!
He must have a poor example f honesty
to go by when he finds himself swindled
while he is in prison.
"A short time ago one of the inmates
of the Deer Lodge prison wrote a story
for an eastern magazine that offered a
prize for the best literary contribution
received. He tried his hand at writing
another and was obliged to send the
communication to Governor Toole and
ask his opinion of the story before it was
allowed to go out to the publisher. The
governor looked the story over and said
it was all right and he had the satisfac
tion of knowing that the publisher of the
magazine confirmed his judgment for the
story won one of the prizes offered by
tbe publication that bid for literary work.
The convict is now engaged upon an
other story which he will pass up to the
governor for perusal before he sends it
away. Queer things happen in the Deer
Lodge pen I guess. It is a place that
takes in all kinds of characters and there
appears to be a sensation of small or
large purportions flowing out of the place
all the time."
SHEEP BANDS ARE IN DANGER
Inspectors Righting an Epidemic of
Scab on North Montana Ranges
G. R. Pyle is in the city from his
home in Fort Benton. He is one of the
flock masters of the state and is well
posted on matters relating to the sheep
industry of the state.
The sheep of the northern part of the
state are threatened with an epidemic
resembling scab," said Mr. Pyle to an In
ter Mountain reporter this forenoon at
the Thornton. Sheep Inspector Freeman
who is a resident of Chinoon, says there
is a very threatening outbreak of this
disease among the flocks of the northern
section of the state. He furtheer says
he is taking Immediate steps to prevent
the spread of the disease. How many
sheep have been tainted with the threat
ened epidemic is not known at present.
"Of the sheep under treatment since
the first appearance of the disease last
winter, a great many have been cured by
dipping. Many of the bands are proba
bly clean, but are being dipped for the
third time as a precaution. The flocks
which have been quarantined owing to
exposure, proved not to havee contracted
the disease and have been released.
"The first discovery of the spread of
the infection was made at the shearing

Chinook. Some 5,000 head weree being
sheared when the scab was reported.
The band was all sheared but about 25
head when the Inspector arrived and de
clared a quarantine. They are not badly
infected, but may have exposed many
others. The Silver Bow Sheep Co.'s
bands, numbering 500 head, are in very
bad shape and have been diseased three
or four months. They are camped ten
miles northwest of Harlem, and are
quarantined on that range. Another
band close to the Silver Bow's com

but have not yet shown signs of scab.
"Almost all the sheep north of Milk

growers, who send them north early in

company Is sinking a three compartment
shaft at the corner of Sllv.er and Colora

and the indications for a great mine are
very encouraging. The vein on which
the company is sinking is the largest in
Butte. It has always been known as
the Mother Lode of the camp. The
plant consists of three eighty horse pow
er boilers, a five drill air compressor,
which does away with hand drilling, an
engine capable of hoisting from a depth
of 1,200 feet, powerful pumps, tanks,
cars, blacksmith shop, shaft house, lum

experienced miners is puttng the shaft
down at the rate of 80 feet per month.
They expect to strike flue ore at a
depth of 650 feet. You do not find a
copper mine in Butte except with depth.
