JUID( BOYL DCLIN[S TO10 INTERFER[ WITH THE COURSING Judge Thomas Boyle this afternoon declined to Interfere with the carrying on in Butte of a sport which has the dignity of antiquity and was established in the days of Xenophon. Upon the complaint of the humane society, Assistant County Attorney paplel Yancey filed information against G. H. Macdougall, charging him with cruelty to animals. Macdougall is the proprietor of the coursing fields, where he maintains a large pack of dogs, and for years has been a promoter of coursing in Butte. The members of the humane society say that they are determined to put a stop to coursing in Butte, on the grounds that the killing of the hares by the dogs is cruel. Mr. Macdougall was arrested yesterday and released on his own recogni zance. This afternoon he appeared before Judge Boyle and after making a clear, frank statement of his case, and giving the judge an idea of the sport, he was discharged. It is understood that the case will be appealed. Mr. Macdougall told the court that coursing was a clean sport and had been indulged in for 3,000 years. "There is no cruelty about coursing," said Mr. Macdougall, "as the hare, once overtaken by the dogs, is killed instantly. "I have over $4,000 invested in the coursing field near the race track, and have arranged everything so that the hare has the best chance possible to escape. As a matter of fact, over ha if of them do get away from the dogs." In submitting the case to the court, Mr. Yancey said that he had no desire to press matters against Mr. Macdougall, and while he could see no fun for the rabbit, it might not be more cruel than the shooting of live birds or the butchering of beasts, but he did not feel like moving for a dismissal of the case. Mr. Macdougall called the attention of the court to the fact that coursing is tolerated all over the country, and every test case has turned out In favor of the coursing men. In dismissing the case, Judge Boyle said that he could not see where the sport was cruel to the jack rabbits. "Not near so bad," said the court, "as men killing them by thousands with clubs." WRECK OF BRITISH TRAIN; BARBERTOWN, TRANSVAAL (By Associated Press.) London, April 2.-.It has been suggest ed that the train wreck near Barber. town, Transvaal conoly, March 30, re sulting in the death of 30 soldiers and the wounding of 45 others, nearly all of whom belonged to the Hampshire regi ment, was caused by the Boers, but Lord Kitchener reports that it w.s accidental.
