F. Augustus Heinze persists in his effort to secure permission to examine the workings of the Anaconda mine. He started another suit this morning with this object in ,new. He asks for an or der of survey and inspection on the contention that the company is extract ing ore frum the Belmont lode, which he asserts is his property. The petition was filed in the district court today, and at the time it was filed, it is understood, the attorneyp for Heinze were seeking a Judge of the court to get an order to show cause, di rected to the respondent, signed. The petitions says that Heinze ig the owner of all the mineral rights iý the Leggat &, Foster addition and the Bel moist addition to Butte within the boundaries of the Belmont claim. It adds, the following: Reiterates Fairmount Contention. "That the respondent by means of un derground workings, drifts, tunnels and shafts has entered into and beneath the surface of said Belmont claim by work ings connected with the underground workings, tunnels and drifts of the An aconda mine, so-called, the property of said respondent, and have extracted large quantities of valuable ores from said premises and belonging to said premises, and your petitioner is in formed and verily believes that said respondent is now engaged in extract ing ores from said veins and from be neath the surface thereof, which ores are of great value and are the prop erty of your petitioner." The petition then alleges that Hclnz, has no means of access to the under-I ground workings described, and that there are no means of access to those workings known to him except through the shafts and workings of the Ana conda mine. Made Demand on Anaconda. Heinze says he demanded to be a] lowed the inspection and survey of the mines of the respondent, and was re fused and that more than three days have elapsed since the demand was made. He says that the survey and Inspec tion are necessary to him to enable him to protect his rights, and in order to provide him with evidence to prose cute a suit against the Anaconda com pany heretofore commuenced. He says in conclusion: "It will be necessary for your petitioner to have access to said Anaconda lode claim and mine and the underground workings therein contained for the period of 90 days, by at least six surveyors, en gineers and attorneys, in order to make said survey, examination and inspec tion." He asks that the court make an order, after giving the respondent notice, per mitting him, and requiring the respond ent to allow him, what he desires. LOOK AT CROOKS DETECTIVE MURPHY GOES TO ANACONDA TO INSPECT MEN. MAY BE BUTTE JAIL BREAKERS Captured by Chief Taylor After Lively Chase-The Prisoners Refuse to Answer Questions in the Sweatbox. Detective Jerry Murphy went t. Ana conda this afternoon to try to identify two men held there by Chief Taylor. They give their names as Uus Swanson and Allan Jones. The men were arrested by the Ana conda police after a hot chase and were at first suposed to be concerned in the diamond robbery. Later it was discov ered thpt they were from Butte and word was sent here asking for an iden tification. Attempts to put the men through the sweat box failed and Detective Murphy will go down to take a look at them. A few days ago the police locked up three men on suspicion of having stolen tailoring goods in a burglary. This morning it was learned that two of these men were implicated in the attempt to break jail which was discovered by Jailer Levy. If these prove to be the men they will be brought back by Detective Murphy and held for trial under charges of at tempted jail breaking. Both men are thought to be expert crooks.

ATTACK CITY LAWS NEW LAW POINT RAISED IN TKS CASES AGAINST PAWNEBOXNR5 WINES SAYS THEY ARE VOID Ordinance Covering 8 Oclock Closing' Declared Unconstitutional - City Attorney Argues Against In terpretation of City Law. Judge J. L. Wines, who is counsel fo' the pawnbrokers arrested at the insti-l gatlon of the Clerks' union for not clos-' ing at 6 o'clock, sprung a new contention` before Judge Boyle this afternoon, which' raises the question of the constitutional*t ity of the prevent closing ordinance as applying to pawnshops, loan offices and. second-hand stores. All of the pawnbrokers who were ar rested under the warrants sworn out by Business Agent Dickinson were present at 2 o'clock this afternoon when demur rers were fled to the complaints. The demurrers set forth that the city ordi nance was void because more than one subject was named in the lill. Case to Be Appealed. By agreement, one case, that of Victor Paltrovich, was brought up for trial, with the understanding that an immedi ate appeal would be taken to the district court in case Judge Boyle decided ad versely to the defendants. Judge Winds appeared for the defend ant, and Assistant City Attorney Bollin ger was asslsted by Attorney Herron, representing the Trades and Labor as sembly. Judge Wines olened the argument on the demurrer, and slated that there was a constitutional provision prohibiting leg islative assemblies and city councils from passing laws or ordinances containing more than one subject. The present or dinance, counsel stated, set forth pawn shops, loan offices and second-hand stores, and the contention was made that the pawnshop and second-hand stores were separate and distinct subjects. Assistant City Attorney Bollinger and Attorney Herron argued that there was, but one subject to the law, and that was the subject of 6 o'clock closing. The court took the latter view of the matter, and overruled the demurred, to which ruling an exception was taken. The hearing of the evidence in the Pal trovich case is in progress this afternoon. The pawnbrokers of the city have unit ed In a joint fund for the purpose of light ing the cases through to the supreme court, it necessary, and the Paltrovich case will be used as a test case in the upper courts in case he is found guilty in the city court. Paltrovich was adjudged guilty and fined $50. His attorney gave notice of appeal. ANSW[R Of IINZ[ MAKES GENERAL DENIAL IN ANACONDA-NIPPER SUIT. CLAIMS HE DID NOT EJECT Heinze Denies That He Has Assumed Exclusive Control of the Nipper Mine Which He Owns Jointly With the Anaconda Company. F. Augustus Heinzc has filed a separate answer in the suit brought by the Ana conda company against h4m and the Nip per company and others, and in which the Anaconda company asked for a re straining order and was refused it by Judge Harney. In the answer IHeinze denies all the principal allegations of the complaint. He admits that the Anaconda com pany and the Nipper company are cor poratione, and that Chester A. Glass. one of the def'ndants, resides in Washing ton, and then proceeds to say that all allegations of the complaint not spe cifically admitted are denied. After that he admits that he and hli predecessors have been owners of an Interest in the Nipper property since October 1, 1875. Then he says: Makes General Denial. "The defendant speclfically denies that he, acting jointly with the other defend ants named In the complaint, or at all, has at any time ousted or ejected the plaintiff from the possession of the prop erty described in the complaint, or any part thereof, or has assumed or exer cised exclusive ownership of said prem ises, as set forth in plaintiff's complaint, or at all, or has mined or extracted val uable ores containing any precious met als, or has carried any such ores away or has converted the same to his own use, or that he, or any of his agents, em ployes or servants, acting jointly, as al leged in said complain with the other defendats, or at all, has done any of the acts or things complained of in plain tiiff's said complaint." In the answer to the second cause of action In the complaint he makes the same denials antd admissions, and at the conclusion he asks to be dismissed from the suit, with his costs and disbure ment.
