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.

PREDICTED THAT THERE WILL BE

IN CHICAGO.
COAL TEAMSTERS ON STRIKE
Will Not Furnish Those Who Used
Gas During the Summer Months
With Coal Now That Is
Is Cold.
(By Associated Preens.)
Chicago, Jan. 28.--'he cold wave In the
extreme northwest has moderated ma
terially, the temperature ranging from
zero to four below.
At 4 o'clock the thermometer in Chi
cago was four degrees below zeo, and
at 10 It was one degree below.
Predictions are that there n ill be
further moderations as the day advances
and that there will be no more sero
weather.
Loral teamsters renewed their war on
big down-town buildings today. The
coal teamsters are determined that
their men shall not haul coal to build
ings that used gas for fuel during the
summer.
At 8 o'clock 100 drivers were ordered
to stop by officials of the union and
promptly obeyed the order.
President Albert Young, of the Coal
Teamsters' union, said:
"We have already stopped hauling
coal to the Old Colony building, the
Monadnock, the Palmer house .i7d the
auditorium and before night not a
union teamster will be hauling coal to
buildings that uses gas for fuel during
the summer.
"During the last cold snap our men
were worked to death. Buildings that
had formerly used fuel gas found out
that coal was necessary and our men
had to work night and day, and at that
were unable to meet the demand
"Many of the regular coal urners
were compelled to wait for coal and
suffered greatly on account of our in
ability to supply the demand."
Milton Booth, secretary of the Coal
Teamsters' union, said:
"We are not in the fight alone, but
have the support of the coal men. 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."
