THE BUTTE INTER MOUNTAIN
VOL. XXII NO. 89 WEATHER FORECAST. BUTTE, MONTANA, MONDAY EVENING, JUNE 30, 1902. FAIR WEATHER. PRICE FIVE CENTS WANTS REPUBLIC OF CUBA TO BE ANNEXED Senator Elkins Makes Speeoh in Favor of His Recent Cuban Resolution. THINKS IT BEST FOR BOTH OF THE C.0UNTRIES Pointed Out That Many Distinguished American Statesmen Have Favored Annexation-Question That Will From Now on Be Forced to the Front Platt Amendments Calculated to Em barrass a Progress of National Life. [ny ASSOCIATED PRFSS.] Washington, June Jo.-When the senate convened today Mr. Gallinger (New Hampshire), chairman of the committee on pensions, made a brief statement of the work done by the pension committee during the present session. It showed that the bills relating to pensions intro duced in the house aggregate 7,158. In the senate, 2,552. The total number passed by both the house and the senate was 1,151. A resolution introduced by Mr. Mor gan, calling on the secretary of state, for a report on the expenditures of the canal commission, was adopted. The senate insisted on its amendment to the navy appropriation bill and the fol lowing conferees were named: Messrs. Hale, Perkins and Tillman. Bills were passed as follows: To prohibit the killing or taking seals, porpoises or other marine animals, or fish of any kind in the waters of the United States, by the use of explosive materials. To establish regulations in the District of Columbia during the encampment of G. A. R., in October, 90o2. To authorize the director of the cen sus to compile statistics relating to irri gation. and to the transportation of du tid 'e merchandise at sub-ports of Ta coma and Seattle, Wash. Mr. Elkins' Speech. Mr. Elkins of West Virginia addressed the senate in support of his resolution providing for the annexation by the United States of the island of Cuba. Mr. J" :ins said his resolution had been misunderstood. It had no hearing on Cuban reciprocity and was not intenlded to have any. The resolution did not sug gest annexation of Cuba in any offensive way. It provided that the Cubans must take the initiative and only after they had asked fo rannexatton coa>d, Ihe United Stater act. lie pointed out that many distinguished and patriotic American statesmen from Jefferson to McKinley had favored annex ation, and Ihe thought the present was an opportune time to carry into effect well defined desires of a majority of the peo ple and the United States in regard to annexation. It is in the interest of both countries. The environment of Cuba with the trou bles and difficulties that beset her on the threshold of her national life stand in the way of her being long an independent na tion. If a state in the American union her people would h prosperous and pro gressive and enjoy the liberty and all the blessings that would follow from lbt ing part of the best, greatest and freest government in t1 world. Sugar Question. The senator continued: "It is claimed annexation would destroy the promising and growing beet sugar in dustry of the United States. Not so, how ever. The prices of products among the states of the union always seeks an equili brium. With proper protection in favor of the cane sugar of Cuba, which she will enjoy as a state and the beet sugar of the United States within x5 years, the United States would not only produce enough sugar for its own consumption, but largely com pete with other countries in the markets of the world. "But for the war with Spain, although so successful and glorious, Cuba would now be a part of the United States. Even with the war, had it not been for our declaration that the war was not waged for conquest and aggrandizement, known as the Teller amendment, Cuba would be a part of the United states as Port Rico and the Philippines are. This amendment has proved both mischievous and unwise. "When Cuba shall become a part of the American Union and the Isthmian canal shall be completed, which is now assured, Porto Rico, Cuba, Hawaii and the Philippines will be the outposts of the great republic, standing guard over American interests in the track of the world's commerce in its triumphal march around the globe. "There is a tendency in all human af fairs in government, trade and commerce to concentration and combination. Meteors go to the sun, small nations are becoming parts of great nations, and Cuba, in her present environment, situated as she is, cannot be expected to resist this tendency. Platt Amendments Embarrass. "The effect of the Platt amendments will be to help bring about annexation. A na tion cannot long remain half free and half dependent; such a condition embarrasses healthy progress in national life and leaves but little room for the exercise of the genius and intelligence of a people in the affairs of government, esplecially when un der such restrictions as these amendments impose. "The question of annexation forces itself to the front and will claim from now on the attention of the people of both coun tries. Reciprocity with Cuba affords no adcqu-te remedy for what threatens her interests. A 20 per cent reduction in her tariff and ours will do Cuba as a people, or as a government, little or no good, whlie it will work great harm to the interests of the United States. There was long discussion and fierce opposition to the annexation of Texas; much more, I think, than there will be to the annexation of A*bb KING EDWARD IS GETTING BETTER BULLETINS ISSUED STATE THAT THERE ARE NO BAD SYMPTOMS OF ANY KIND TO CAUSE ALARM. COURAGE AND PATIENCE OF THE ROYAL PATIENT Queen Alexandra in Constant Attendance in the Sick Room and the Utmost Quiet Is Observed-No Matters of Business Submitted to the King-Not Permitted to Read Correspondence. f[B ASSOCIATED PRESS.] London, June 3..-The notable excite ment during the past week outside of Buckingham palace was at the houses where the bulletins were posted and was absolutely quiet this morning. The srin guine impression created by the doctors Saturday and Sunday was maintained by the salient phrases in this morning's bul letin: "No Bad Symptoms of Any Kind." At noon the following official statement was given out at the palace: "There is no cause for alarm in the distress caused by dressing the wound. This occurs at least twice daily. The wound, which is of considerable depth, is dressed from the bottom, as it is essen tial that it should heal from within out ward. "The dressing causes his majesty con siderable pain, which he has borne with great fortitude. "In fact, his majesty's courage and patience calls for the greatest admiration. The king was mucl benefited by the change to the couch yesterday, on which lie stayed for a few hours. "The electric fans proved of great benefit in keeping down the temperature of the apartment. The queen is in constant et tendance on the sick room, but the utmost quiet is enforced. "The king occasionally sees his children, but the interviews are of short duration. No matters of state or business are allowed to be submitted to the king, who is also debarred from reading his correspondence. "Neither l)rs. I.aking, Barlow or Treves have left the palace since the operation except for an occasional hour." Thfs statement was issued with a view of correcting the numerous rumors with re gard to the king's condition. The stock market opened strong with the satisfactory news regarding the king's condition. Consols rose seven-sixteenths. Other departments reflected the improved condition. SATURDAY'S STORM DOES MUCH INJURY LOWEST ESTIMATE MADE PLACES LOSS BY HURRICANE AT ONE MILLION DOLLARS. ['v AssocIATAe D IUESS., St. Louis, Mo., June 30.-A low estimate placed on thie damage wrought within a radius of 15o miles of Alton, Ill., by the storm of wind and rain Saturday night and Sunday, is $1,ooo,ooo. In the American bottoms, farming dis tricts, the farmers are ruined. Wood river, a small and usually iarmless stream overflowed its banks early Sunday morn ing, and the farmers in the vast expanse of bottom lands were foro d to get into the upper stories of their homes to save their lives. Their houses were flooded. After spend ing a night full of peril they watched the daylight come in only to see that their crops had been washed away. The Reuter farm near the banks of Wood river, three miles from Alton, was damaged to the extent of $1o,ooo, and when the waters subsided the loss may be twice this amount. This is only one instance. Railroad traffic through the bottom lands is entirely shut off and the washouts, it is said, cannot be easily or rapidly repaired. At East Alton, the Western Cartridge company was flooded with loss of $5,000 or more. The reports received this morning from the Piasa creek district, say that the farmers in their anxiety to get stock out of the valley into the hills, neglected to save any of their shocked wheat and lost all. All the crops there are lost. JUSTICE AL SHEPHEBD RECEIVES DREAD CALL Succumbs to Consumption After a Linger ing Illness-Held Number of Publio Offices in Butte.

EXPERT NUCKOLLS TESTIFIES Assistant Cashier of Savings Bank Testifies in Colbert Will Case--Believes Woolbeater's Writing to Be That on Will Sub mitted By Him. R. B. Nuckolls, the assistant cashier of the State Savings bank of Butte and a local handwriting expert, was on the stan'd most of the forenoon today in the Colbert will contest trial, in Judge Clancy's court. Nuckolls testified in behalf of l.illian, Fluke and Fred V. Scheuer, who are con tending against the state of Montana and W. I. Lippincott and John Woolbcatcr to secure the property of Col)bert. Scheuer and Miss Fluke claim the prop erty by virtue of being the beneficiaries under a will alleged to have been made by Colbert several years ago and which is now lost and destroyed. Mr. Nuckolls struck a blow at the Wool benter-L.ippincott will by declaring that in his opinion the signature to it was not written by Colbert. He struck a second blow at the hopes of the proponents in the contest by declaring that he thought R. B. NUCKOLLb, Butte Handwriting Expert Who Says Col burt's Signature Is Forged. that the person who wrote the signature "John \Voolbeater" to another instrument, admitted to have been written by Wool beater, also wrote the Colbert signature to the Liplincott-Woolbeater will. Nuckolls Takes the Stand. Mr. Nuckolls took the stand when the court c.lopened and he was asked what his business is, and he replied: "1 am the assistant cashier of the State Saving bank. I have been in the banking business for several years. I have filled every place in the bIlk from office boy to assistant cashier." "\What experience have you had as a receiving teller?" Mr. Cotter for the FluLk: Sechtuer side of the contest asked. "I have had some," was the reply. Then Mr. Nuckolls said that he had spent a number of years examining checks from other banks. He examined the sig natures on tile checks, lie said, probably 300 Ia day. "llave you made' a study of signatures and the characteristics of handwriting in your bank experience?" he was asked. "Y'es, sir." "Did Charles Colbert do husiness with the State Savings bank?" "lIe did." "Hlave you examined the signature of Colbert on the bank's books?" "Yes. sir." "llow often?" "From 8 to It times." Recognizes True Signature. Twelve signatures of Colbert were hand ed to the witness, and Mr. Cotter said: "Mr. Nuckolls, I now show you ex hibits of the plaintiffs. I call your at tention to the signature of Charles Co'l bert, I)o you recognize that as tile true signature of Charles Colbert?" This question was objected to as not competent. Mr. Roote, for the propo nents, stid that the witness had said he had examiltned signatures siid to lie Colbert's. Ilut lie hait never seen Colwbert sign his name and had never seen Colbert. Mr. Roote thought some onte else might have tnade the signatures. The court over. ruled the objection and told the witness to answer tile question. "I do recognize this as the true sig nature of Colbert," he said. DEATH IS CAUSED BY HEART FAILURE CHARLES CRESS, AN ANACONDA DRUGGIST, FOUND DEAD IN HIS BED AT NOON TODAY. [SPECIAL TO INTER MOUNTAIN.] Anaconda, June 30o.-Charles T. W. Cress, a prominent druggist of this city, was found dead in his bed at noon today in his room in the rear of his store, No. 209 East Park avenue. It is sulpposed that death was due to heart failure. Charles T. W. Cress had been in the drug business in Anaconda for nearly four teen years.
