IN UNITED STATES COURT AND PUNISHMENT IS METED OUT.TO THEM Five of the seven persona indicted yesterday by the federal grand jury for the commission of offenses against the government were arraigned in the United States court today and at first took 24 hours in which to plead, but a little later on all changed their minds, pleaded guilty to the charges against them and were sentenced by Judge Knowles. The men who concluded to take their medicine without further delay are Robert Allen, Antone Strixict, Joseph Jangrow, John Place and Stephen Hen ault. Judge Knowles appointed attorneys to look after the interests of the prisoners. Six Months for Ai;en. IRobert Allen, indicted for having eloped with three horses belonging to Medicine Boy, a Fort Belknap reservation Indian, was sentenced to six months in the Lewis and Clarke county jail. Alien is a cripple, his right leg being about a foot shorter than the left. He is compelled to use crutches in getting around. Allen was once a member of the Great Falls football team and it was while playing a game that he received an injury to the right hip which resulted in his present physical condition. Antone Strixict was sentenced to 18( days In the Helena Jail, 90 days on one count and an equal number on another. He is the man who found the key to the Great Falls Evening Leader's postoftice box and tmade use of it att various times. Fined a Cool Thousand. John Place was fined $1,000 for encroaching upon the Hilackfeet Indian reservation after having been told by Agent Monteath to go beyond the boundaries and sit down, but by taking the pauper oath 30 days hence he can get out of the Lewis and ('larke county Jail, to which lie was order, ii in lieu of the payment of the fine. Joseph Jangrow, a half-breed Kooit nal Indian, was sentenced to flve months in the Helena Jail anodfined $200 for having given an Indian a drink of whisky and sold another t qualrt. ''he onffense was coinmitted on the Flat head reservation. He was indli'ttd on two countts. Orll the advice of his at torney, A. N. Walsh, he at first wHnt'Idi to plead guilty to one of the counts, that of having given one of his reid friends a drink, Iut the Initled States district attorney told the judge he was a bad Indian and he thought the dose should go double. Accordingly the fudge gave the prisoner Tliree months and a fine tiof $100 for selling the whisky and two mnonths and $100 for giving the drink. Sold Whisky to Indians. Stephen Henault, a quarter-breed, having been Indlcted on two counts for selling whisky to Indians, was sentenced to four months in the Helena jail and fined $200, two months and $100 going with each count. liefore sentence was pronounced Henault told the judge het had simply ca'rr'id thet whisky for the Indians. "That is strange," remarked the judge. "An Indian usually desires to carry his own whisky. I do not know Ibuit ma n ought to htave a good sen tencte for packing whisky for Indians." The other two men against wholn in dlctments were found were nott in court or there might have been seve\'n plas of guilty instead of live. COLUMBIA GARD[N ROMANCL INTERRUPTED BY STERN PEACE GUARDIANS ENDS HAPPILY THIS MORNING Pretty Amy Cummings, who, by the strong arm of tih, law. was ruthlessly torn from the side of her lover and prospective husband last night- at the in stance of her parents, was this morning made the child wife of \Villian I3arkla. The ceremony was performed at 10:30 o'clock at the residence of the bride's parents, 508 East Broadway, Police Magistrate Bloyle oficlating. Miss Cummings, who is but 15 years of age and the daughter of Asepharos 'ummings, a miner, formed a lasting attachment for Willianm h1arkla about li\'e months ago while enjoying the mazes of the waltz at 'olumbia (Gardens. E1ven temporary separation pained the loving couple, and on Sunday night, after the dance, they decided to wed. Went Away From Home. Amy did not return to her home, but occupied quarters lpovided by the mioan she adored. Knowing that her failure to return to the parental roof would pain her parents, she penned a note to them and dispatched it by a messenger boy. In the note she detailed her love, and statted that she w)ould ibe married before they could Interfere. The note proved the undoing of the young couple, and led to the discovery of the girl. Captain 1Everts and Detective Murphy watched for the return of 13arkla to the side of his idol, and despite tears and pleidings escorted the couple to the city jail, there to remain until this morning. At first the fattier was dtdurate and insisted that punishment be meted out to Barkla for enticing his daughter from home, but upon interviewing his prospective son-in-law he 'relentcd. It then became neces'ary to secure the sanction of the mother, and she, too, said "No." The father finally convinced Mrs. Cummings that as matters stood it would be far preferable to permit Amy to marry than to subject her and the faiamly to the disgrace which would surely follow if the privilege were denied, and so they were married. Mammon Versus Cupid. B3arklat is a well-appearing young man of 24 years, and is in the employ of the Largey Lumber company. He insisted when arrested that he intended no fracture of the law when he provided for Miss Cummings previous to the marriage ceremony, and that he would have been married before the matter became public had he possessed the amount necessary to procure a marriage license. An amusing incident In co,nection with the affair occurred this morning when Mr. and Mrs. Cummings appeared in the office of the chief of police. Approaching Captain lEverts, who was acting chief, Mr. Cummings placed his hand on the captain's shoulder and, ttturning him aound, Intioduced himn to Mrs. Cummings as her future son-in-law. The captain's hands went up In the air, and, with his hair standing on end, he exclaimed: "Excuse me. I can't stand for that. I am tile captain of police, and not marriageable at the present time!" JUDGE WAS LENIENI IT WAS THE- MORNING AFTER ST. PATRICK'S DAY. DRUNKS GOT OFF VERY EASY Charge of Disturbing the Peace Against Mrs. Florence May Result More Seriously-Tenderloin Pris oners Enter Pleas of Not Guilty. It was the-day after St. Patrick's diiy in the pollce court this morning, and Judge Boyle dealt lightly with the pltty offenders who were marshaled before (him by Jailer Sol Levy. Jule Frick, Pat CIonners, J. B. Long and Stephen Gi lla gher pleaded guilty to the charge of drunkenness and were lfnla $5 each. ;Gallagher gave facial evidnci of hav ing celebrated far beyoi.d the limit, and was compelled to face the court with only one eye open, the othrtli huaving' ben closed in a fistic encounter with another convivial spirit. "This is the day after St. Patrick's day," said Judge Boyle, "and the pris oners will be discharged.' Mike Harrington, who had also c le brated, pleaded guilty to having dis turbed the peace, but stated that a lot of boys had teased him beyond endur ance. His fine was remitted. Gertrude Williams and Alice Adams failed to appear when their names were called, and their bonds in the sum of '$10 each, which they had deposited when arrested for street walking, were for felted. Lillie Adams, Emma Yames and Mary Green, colored, pleaded !ot guilty to the customary charge and their cases were set for Friday afternoon.

Once, at the beginning of a fall term, several frost sophomores were passing the professot't study room and onet of them called out: "Hello, Schwatt,"' anti passed on do\\r the hall. Dr. Schwatt leaped from his chair, anti rushing to the door seized the first per. son he could lay his hands on, shouting "'Hey, what you mean, sir? You want to talk with me, then come right inside don't yell like that." The unlucky student thus addressee happened to be a first-year man, fresi from Kansas, and he was very muct frightened. "Why, he stammered, "I didn't yo at. you. I don't even know who you are," he added, with offended dignity. The Great Book Auction sale closet Saturday night, this week.

They are backing out of their difficulties, proba bly having concluded that the decision of the supreme court upholding the anti gambling law is too much to cope with. Adam Person evidently took that vie-, as he ceased to fight his prosecution in the district court today. He was charged with breaking the gambling law by engaging in the operation of a gam bling game known as poker. This morning Person appeared in Judge McClernan's department of the court and pleaded guilty to the charge against him and paid his fine of $100 like a man. The fine was not large, but it is undestood that the court took int con sideration the fact that the law was unsettled when Person was arrested and charged with breaking it. When Person and two other defend ants, whose cases.had been dismissed, were passing out the courtroom door, .._ . ._z.sz_ :.._z . -.2--__:. . . ._ : _--o . . . the(' court said, as a warning that the next offense would not be~ dealt with so leniently, "Gentlemen, you know what the law is now." Jeside PeIrson two men namned SHtanliy and Lawson were charged with reakilng the law at the same time. In their caser Assistant Attorney Yancey asked the court to dismiss the charge for the I'a son that It had Ibeen show n to his Hatis faction that Lawson and Mtanley had merely "bucked at" the game and had not run It. There are about 20 more gambling cases for settlement In Judge McC.lernan's court. In all probalility manny or the de fenldants, concluding that discr[etion Is the better part of valor, will follow Pe'r son's lead and plead gullty and pay their IIn(es.

Rival Fire Companies Fight While the House Burns. (Now York World.) The borough of Turtle Creek is bur doled with a superahundanc(e of firemen, whose jealousy of each has already re sulted In the serious iinjury of two mem bers of one of the companies, more or less severe Injuries to three others and the total destruction of a $5,000 house. The whole trouble is the result of the esulblishmlent of a pald lire depalrtlnenlt, the lelnmbers of which claim to have ex (lusive rights and jurisdiction within the borough limllts. Until recently the rt stllents have been afforded excellent protection against ire by a strOllng 'olun. tier lire company, ald tile mnll.m'ers are conse(iquently ipoudt of their line recordl a nd long terms of srvlice.

A few days ago the comprlallnies met 4t one ofl' the worst firts the boroulgh has known for a long time. As usual the volunteers were first to arrive, and they mnonpolized all the water plugs In the viclnlity of th-, house by the time the other company came gal loping uo. Had the volunteers been left alone to fight the file the house would' have undoubtedy been saved, but a clash occurred over the possession of the water plugs. 1-I. I.
