PRICE FPVB CENTS SWORN DECLARATION Or EINZt- IN DELAWARE SURETY MATTER FILED IN TH SUPEBBME COURT THIS MORNING BY ATTORNEY GENE.AL DONOVAN. CONFLICT IN THE TESTIMONY Kr. Heinse Is Under Oath While His Attorneys Are Examined on Their Professional Honor as to the Con .tempt Inquiry of the Delaware Surety Company in Supreme Court. (Special to Inter Mountain.) Helena, Jan. 28.-Statements made by F. A. Heinse, T. C. Bach, It. B. Smith, J. J. MoHatton, E. C. Day, A. B. Clem ents and E. W. Toole have been filed with the clerk of the supreme court by Attorney General Donovan as bearing upon the investigation into the Delawarl Surety company. Mr. Heinse's statements were sworn to, and the dc-claratione made by the attorneys were upon their professional honor. Mr. Heinze, in his statement in refer ence to the refusal of the Delaware surety company to justdfy on the bond required, said: • "Immediately after the supreme court had made Its order increasing the bond in this suit I telegraphed the fact to the offeers of the Montana Ore Purchasing company in New York and asked them to see what they could do abput a bond, and subsequently I received advices from my brother, A. P. Heinze, he being in charge of the office, that they had made arrangements with the Delaware Surety company to furnish the bond. Conflipting Testimony. "I asked them at the time whether they could suggest any one in Butte to qct as the agent for the company in the btate, and as I had considerable ac Suaintance with A. B. Clements, I said 'e would be an acceptable man to us, And I thought no doubt a valuable man to the Delaware Surety company. Judge J. J. Mcljatton prepared the forin of the bond and sent it on to New York. Question: "Were you in Montana when the objections to the bond were filed by affidavit of L. O. Evans on May 27, 19017" Answer: " es, sir; ,I was.'r Question: "When did you leave, if you did leave Montana about that time?" Answer: "I think I left about June 1." There is an apparent conflict in Heinze's testimony given before the commiseloner in New York and before 'tie attorney general. In New York he testified that he had taked with his brother several months before the "bond matter" came up about tile company. Before Attorney General Donovan he stated that he went to New York "to see wvhat they could do about a bond." Comparing Statements. He further testified before the comrn missionerrthat he held one-fourth of the stock of the Delaware SPurety company, and that he and his brothers among them controlled a majority of the stock. He then said that he had paid for not quite one-fourth of the stock in checks of the Montana Ore Purchasing company for $850,000, and intimated that this sum was charged against his credit on the booke of the company, though he was uot certain of that fact-not even whether the checks had gone through the bank. He admitted that he afterwards re ceived back from the Delaware Surety company a sum in excess of $850,000, but retained the stock end gave in exchange some securities whlkh the company bought from him. Mr. Heinze was asked what these se curities were, but on the advice of his counsel declined to answer. CLEARING AWAY WRECKAGE. Large Forces of Men Employed Patients Are All Doing Well.

We would have conducted the campaign alone had it been necessary, but with the aid of our employers, are in a much better position to oonduct the fight., and it will be a lively one."
