The first matter scheduled for trial is the damage suit of M. Elward against the Oregon Short Line Railroad company. A few preliminary matters were to he.ve been heard by the judge today, but 'with one or two exceptions they were continued. In ijhe matter of the $15,000 damage suit of Mae Thorne vs. the Northern Pacific Rltliroad company and the Pullman Car company the plaintiff was given until Starch 8 In which to tile an amended com plaint as to the Pullman company, which corporation was shut out by a demurrer a'few days ago. The Nqrthcrn Pacific part will be tried March 5. A Chapter in Higgins Case. A demurrer to the complaint in the suit brought by Edward Blockley against Lieutenant Governor Higgins and his brother. Arthur. to recover judgment for $10,000 for personal injuries allered to have been sustained by him at the hands of the defendants in Missoula on the 4vening of December 15 was argued in the Tlnited States court today. Attorney H. C. Stiff of Mlssoula ap peared for the defendants and L. P. Sanders represented the plaintiff. Seven clauses in the demurrer men tloned alleged plans in the complaint, but the principal one dealt with the question as to whether Blockly, being a denizen of California and an English subject, had the right to maintain the action in the United States court. The complaint referred to the plaintiff as an "alien," and Mr. Stiff maintained that it should have mentioned him as the citizen of another country or a foreign subject. The suficiency of only one part of the complaint was doubted by the court. It related to an indefinite sum of money alleged to have been paid by the plaintiff for medical services as a result of the assault. It formed a portion of the total amount for which judgment was asked. The judge gave it as his opinion that this part of the relief demanded should have come under the head of special damages, the amount of which could be fixed by jury after the submission of testimony relating to it. The demurrer was overruled, but Mr. Sanders stated that the part of the com plaint bearing upon the doubtful portion Iwould probably be amended.

STABBED BY RIEND MOCRK&M NORM TZR V1O=rX 01 A 0819U8 CUTTING aNFBAY. WILLIAM DQLAN IS ARRESTED Wounded Man and Ei Am.ilant Shield Each Other Though Both Are Said to Have Been Fighting. Conflicting stories are told of the cut ting affray early yesterday morning in the Gagnon saloon on North Montana street in which Michael Horn was stabbed near to death by William Dolan. Both men were friends until the quarrel which took place about 5 o'clock yester day morning and both are seeking to pl btect each other from the offcers of the law. Horn is at St. James hospital with a knife wound In his abdomen which Is likely to'prove fatal, though the surgeons today announced that some improvement in his condition was noted. Dolan is at the county jail where he is being held pending the death or recovery of Horn. Intestines Were Cut. Horn was cut with a pocket knife. The blade entered the left side of the abdo men under the heart and cut through the intestines. The wound Is an inch long and about three inches deep. In addition he has a slight wound in the back. Horn and Dolan are miners employed at the Coluse-Parrot mine and have been friends since boyhood. They came to Butte together some two years ago. Horn is unmarried and lived with Patrick Flynn, a miner, living at No. 209 Virginia street. Dolan, with his wife and family, lived in the rear of the Flynn home. Dolan's arrest was brought about by Patrick Flynn, who swore out the war rant under which the arrest was made about 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon by Deputy Sheriff Fitasimmons. On his way to the Jail Dolan told the officer that he had warned Honn to keep away from him. Dolan claims that he went into Patrick Dineen's saloon to get a bucket of beer and there met James Breenan, foreman of the dreen Mountain mine. The latter mistook Dolan for another man he was after and Dolan says he pulled his knife to bluff Breenan. Horn Struck Dolan. Later Dolan went to the Gagnon which is owned and was ~tnrerly conducted by Thomas Pooley, who has been on trial for murder and there met Horn. In the opinion of the officers a drunken brawl resulted in which Dolan stabbed Horn after the latter had struck his friend either by accident or design. Dolan has a black eye and bruises on his face which indicate that he was struck. In his statement to the county attor ney Horn said that Dolan threatened, o pull a knife on another man and that he told Dolan to put the knife in his pocket and fight with his hands. Dolan called him a cur. Horn says he thought Dolan was too friendly with him to cut him but t he felt two or three stabs. Hotn's intestines were sutured by Dr. E. XM. Hall, assisted by Drs. Monahan ue. Smetters. Should the danger of com plications be avoided Horn has a good chance of recovering. BUE CURRNI NOITEIS Oton Brps.--Pianos and organs. l. I. Gerry is over from the capital. D.
