Park, butte WARNING TO CHINA AND RUSSIA (Continued from Page One.) of China was submitted in advance to President Roosevelt and Secretary Hay and approved by them. When Lord Cranborne, in the British parliament last week, declared there was no doubt the British-Japanese agree ment would command the final approval of the United States, he spoke by au thority. The agreement between (treat Britain and Japan was dated January 80. There is therefore deep significance that on February 1, two days after toe treaty was signed this county, sent to Russia a note practically adopting the principle of the treaty as the policy of the United States. The agreemont be tween Great Btritain and Japan is largely a military one and provides for a joint use of forces in case of hostilities. Germany Sent Similar Note. Secretary Hay's letter, of course, could not go to that extent, but the suostance of it, as telegraphed, leaves no doubt that Russia has been notified of the fact in strong diplomatic language that the moral bupport of the United States is with Great Britain and Japan and that this country will necessarily resent any failure on the part of Russia to redeem the pledge it made to President McKin ley that the open door policy should, he applied to Manchuria. Apparently Secretary Hay wait'd until after the British-Japanese treaty was made puhlc so that the note of the United States :night have all the weight of an indorsement of that treaty. It is believed that Germany wrote a similar note to Russia and that while the emperor was unwilling to partici pate in an alliance with England and Japan, he was not averse to letting the czar know that Germany's commercial interests in the orient would he jeol ousy guarded. It Is heil ved, In fact, that Germany and the United States will be found to be occupying almost the same position and thus the result will he that Russia and France will be arrayed one one side and Great Britain, Germany, Japan and the United Stttes on the other, D02 HUlK POCK 12 Years In Plutt.

SAYS HIS WIFE IS CRUEL Wants Her to .Pay His Attorney's *ee and Other Costs and Asks for a Division of Property Worth Three Thousand. A divorce suit was brought in the dis trict court today. tin which a man not only asks to be relieved of his wife, but wants her to pay his attorney's fees in the case and the expenses of the suit. Also he alleges that she has been "cruel and inhuman" to him, and has driven him from home. The plaintiff In the case is Jacob More and the defendant is Ellen Hore. Hore says he has lived in Butte for 1F years. He alleges that he and Mrs. Hore were married In England in 1810. He proceeds to say that since August, 1901, he has been sick, and that since that time he has been supported by con tributions by certain beneficial organiza tions of which he was a member. He adds that the organizations referred to have, since January, 1902, refused to longer support hitt. Lost His Home. Then he goes on to declare that Mrs. Hore has treated him in a cruel and in human manner since the marriage with her 30 years and more ago. On February 1, 1902, he alleges, Mrs. Hore drove him from their home and called him vile names and she has refused to live with him since or to allow him to return to the house. The complaint says that Hore and his wife have during their married life, by their united efforts, acquired $2,600, which is in money deposited in banks, and also furniture worth $500. Hore also says that $150 is a reasonable fee for his attorney, and declares that he has no means wherewith to defray the expenses of the suit. He asks the court to make an order re quiring Mrs. Hore to pay into court a reasonable sum to meet the expenses of his suit, and that she he enjoined from encumbering or disposing of their joint property. Besides that, he prays for a divorce and a division of all the joint property, which the wife has posses sIon of. COW CASE TO JURY EVIDENCE AND ARGUMENTS COM PLETED AT LATE HOUR TODAY. DEFENSE WAS VERY BRIEF Defedants Deny That They Butchered and Sold the Red Cow-Say It Was Another Beef Entirely. The grand larceny trial in which George McDonald and John Moffat are the defendants and the red cow of Lud ger Michaud figures as the meat of con tention, was concluded as to the evidence and arguments this afternoon. It went to the jury at a late hour and a verdict had not been reached at latest accounts. The defense in the red row case was just as different from the prosecution in its statements as day is from night. It differed as much as the cow with the crumpled horn differed from the cow that jumped over the moon. The defense admitted by its witnesses that a cow was slaughtered on the 12th the day after the Michaud bossy van ished, by Moffat and McDonald, the de fendants, but denied that a row was slaughtered by them on the 11th. Both McDonald and Moffat also denied that they had turned the Michaud animal into commercial beef and dispos'd of it to the butchers. Case of Mistaken Identity. In his opening tack Attorney Kirk stated that it was a case of mistaken identity in cows. He conceded that there had been a chain of circumstances which justined the county attorney in believ ing that the defendants had made away with Mrs. Michaud's bovine, but insisted that there was a mistake, nevertheless. He said the evidence would show that on November 11, when the red cow dis appeared the defendants were engaged in prosecuting a replevin suit in North Walkervitle and had driven a land of cows from that place to their corral. This band of cows was not slaughtered by them, because a man named Matthews, who claimed to own them, had reclaimed theta and taken them back into his pos session. Defendants Make Denials. McI.)onald & Moffat both testified that they had hought the Wilton cow on the 12th and had sold its meat and hide the next day. Wilton is dead, but his evidence at the preceding trial in which he said he had sold the defendants a cow in the early November but was not sure the date was the 12th-r not, was read to the jury. "Did you kill the Michaud cow?" "No." McDonald admitted that he had sold the hide of the Wilton kine a day after slaughtering it, although he kncw that it is against the law to sell the hide of a cow until ten days after it was slaughtered. He said, however, that knowing it was his own cow, he' felt that he was doing nobody wrong by his action and was ready to show that it was his cow if he should be required to do so. Moffat corroborated McDonald's testi mony in detail and stuck to th9 state ment that it was Wilton's cow that was slaughtered and sold the day after the Michaud cow vanished. McDonald'swwife and little daughter were in court yesterday and today listen ing to the testimony. Mrs. McDonald Is a very respectable looking woman, and the serious charge against her husbatd wins sympathy for her. HEALTH OP PICER ADVPT. STRIN GrNT MEASURss. PASSENGERS TO BE EXAMINED All Travelers to Butte Must Produce Health Certiicates or Submit to Medical Inspection Before Entering City. Health Commissioner Leggat today adopted stringent measures to prevent a ease of smallpox breaking into the city. Men were sent out by the health officer this noon to meet all trains com ing from Utah and require the passen gers and crews to produce health cer tificates. The unusual order was Iasued because of a notice received by the Butte health department from Hyrum, Utah, to the effect that one tChanse Swinson had jumped quarantine there and was headed toward Butte. Dr. Leggat says he will make a deter mined effort to eatch Swinson before any of the Butte citizens are exposed. Commissioner Is Right, Says Lamb. The commissioner consulted with City Attorney Lamb this morning and was advised by that official that the health department had a right to board the in coming trains and subject the passen gers to examinations, where health cer tificates were not produced. A representative of the health office will board each train on the Oregon Short Line, freight or passenger, and subject the passengers or deadheads to a rigid examination. Swinson is described as a youth of 19 years, short, heavy-set, sandy com plexion and poorly dressed. He has a father, brother and sister living in Butte. The health officers are trying this afternoon to locate the Swinson home and set a guard o'er it also. MANY PAPERS READ MEETING OF TEE SOCIETY DRAW ING TO A CLOSE.
