THE BUTTE I R R MOUNTAIN
VOL. XXII NO. 91 WEATHER FORECAST. BUTTE, MONTANA, WEDN AY EVENING, JULY 2, 19o02. FAIR WEATHER. PRICE FIVE CENTS NEW SMELTER FOR EAST BUTTE MINE FRANKLIN FARRELLAND ASSOCIATES WILL ERECT BIG PLANT WITH BRANCH RAILWAY. PETITION FILED WITH THE COUNTY OFFICIALS Operators Have Been Developing Mines in Vicinity for Year and a Half Right of Way Along Cedar Street Asked-Operators Developing Several Mines in East Butte. Butte is going to have another smelter and it will not be an insignificant one. It is to be erected by Franklin Farrell and his Eastern associates, who have been de veloping mining ground in East Butte dur ing the last year and a half. The preliminary steps toward building the plant are already under way. Today the county commissioners received from H. J. Horn, superintendent of the Mon tana division of the Northern Pacific, a petition for a right of way along Cedur street in the East Butte addition, which is near the mines of the Farrell syndicate. Before taking action on the matter the commissioners paid the addition a visit and will pass upon the petition later. The proposed right of way is for use in connection with the new smelter, which is to be built on Farrell property right near the mines. To successfully work the mines and the proposed new works, it is neces sary to have railroad connections with both in order that fuel may be obtained and the product of the smelter hauled away. The proposed line of road is to be a branch of the main line and will be built as soon as the commissioners grant the pe tition of Mr. Horn. MURDERER HANGED AT ST. HELENS, ORE. FOLLOWED HIS FRIEND TO A LONE LY ROAD AND THERE HE KILLED HIM WITH A RIFLE. [BY ASSOCIATED PRFBS.1 St. Helens, Ore., July 2.-August Schievie was hanged today for the murder of Joseph Schulkowski, on December 26 last. Joseph Schulkowski had been discharged at the Presidio, San Francisco, from the United States army. In August Schul. kowski, with his savings amounting to $300 or more, came north and settled upon a claim near St. Helens. He spent Christmas In St. Helens, and on the day after he started home on a lonely road. He had visited the Schlevie family and bade them good-bye at so o'clock. He had traveled about seven miles along the highway through the hills when he was shot from ambush by August Schievie. The murderer left the house after the departure of his friend, and going by a cir cuitous route on horseback, secreted him self in the underbrush and when Schul kowski came along he shot the latter. A few days later a 32-2o Winchester rifle cartridge shell was picked up near the scene. Afterward it was proved that the shell was fired from a gun owned by Schievie. UNION MACHINISTS MAKE A STATEMENT ADMIT THAT THE UNION PACIFIC PAYS THE HIGHEST SCALE OF WAGES-NO PIECE WORK. [BY ASSOCIAT'ED PRewSS,] Omaha, Neb., July 2.-Thomas I.. Wil son, vice president of the Machinists' union, today made a statement to the public in answer to that issued by Presi dent Burt of the Union Pacific railroad touching the merits of the strike on that road. Mr. Wilson admits the road has been paying the highest scale of wages during the past, but says other roads raised the scale of wages on July I and the de mands of the Union Pacific machinists were strictly in line with the general movement of all mechanics to get a fair share of the existing prosperity in the United States and to which they are justly entitled. On the refusal of the machinists to ac cept piece work, Mr. Wilson says the machinists are not to be compared with trainmen, who do not come into com petition with each other, lie says such a system would tend to bring them into competition with sweatshop workmen and prevent them from treating as a body with the company. He sums up as follows: "I do not hesitate to most emphatical ly say that this trouble was brought about by the arbitrary actions of the Union Pacific road. They wanted the strike; they got it, and are apparently glad of it. Since we are forced to it we will see that the men's demands are granted or we will go down to defeat like one man."

WOOLBA TER'S IMORYI FAILS Chief Proponent in Col art Will Case Can Re member Little--Saw Legator Every Day, in Week Before Death, But Knew of No Will at Timte of Death. John Woolbeater, one of the propo nents of the Lippincott-Woolbeater will, was subjected to a rigid cross-examination this morning by Attorney C. F. Kelley for the state in the Colbert will contest trial in Judge Clancy's court. Chief among the things developed by the cross-examination was the fact that Wool beater could not remember a great many Incidents which may have occurred during the week of Colbert's death and the week following. In the redirect examination of Wool beater by Attorney Roote, one of his coun sel, he denied the charge that he forged the name of Colbert to the will which he and Judge Lippincott are seeking to have probated. Said Mr. Route, very solemnly: "Here is the will of the late Charles Colbert. Kindly examine it." Woolbeater took the glass case in which the will was spread out and looked at it through his spectacles. Charged With Forgery. Said Mr. Roote again with equal solem nity: "Mr. Woolbeater, you have been charged here with writing Charles Colbert's name to that paper. Did you or did you not do that?" Woolbcater replied with a solemnity that rivaled Mr. Roote's: "I did not write Charles Colbert's name on that paper." At the opening of the cross-examina tion Woolbeater testified that he went to Colbert's cabin the afternoon the latter died, about z5 minutes after Hofreuter and Wegner left. 'Was it not a half an hour afterwards?" Mr. Kelley asked. The witness finally admitted that it probably was a half an hour afterward. He saw Hofreuter, Wegner and Lippin cott leave Colbert's cabin and he talked with Colbert when he went there. "What was said between you and Col bert ?" the attorney asked. "He talked about his health. lie said he was feeling better," Woolbeater replied. "What did you say?" "I said I was glad of it." Colbert Mentioned No Will. "And Colbert never mentioned the fact to you that he made a will?" "No." "He never said a word about it to you?" "No." "Did you see Lippincott at Colbert's cabin some day before Celbert died in the same week ?" "I think I did." "What day? Colbert died on Thurs day the 14th." "I can't say." "Did you see him mere than one time ?" "I can't say I did." "Can you say you didn't ?" "No." "Did you see anyone in Colbert's cabin between Monday, the I sth, and T'hursday, the 14th, the day he died?" "Yes, I did." "Who did you see?' "Mrs. Kriser." "Who else afterward?" "Dr. Moore." Was With Colbert Often. Woolbeater said he did not remember seeing Mrs. Kriser at his own cabin on the Isth when he was making broth there. He said he was with Colbert every day in the week that the other died, and that Colbert talked naturally and was in better health on Monday than he had been theretofore. Many things, but nothing of importance, were discussed by them during the early days of the week before Colbert died. "You talked with him Monday?" Mr. Kelley inquired. "Yes," the witness replied. "On Tuesday ?" "Yes." "Wednesday ?" "Yes." "Thursday, the day he died ?" "Yes." "And yet he never once said anything about a will ?" "No." ONA PROEBSTEL, The Young Laid Who. le to Road the Declaratlon of Independence Jury Fourth i -, Butte. "Did you see Lippincott on the day Col bett lied before the latter's death i" "I don't remember." "Did you see hinm on Friday, the day alter he died ?" "1 tay have." "How many times?" "I don't know." "In the morning ?" "I don't know." "In the afternoon ?" Don't Remember Anything. "I don't rememlber." "In the evening ?" "1 don't remember." "But you're sure you saw him that day ?" "Yes," said the witness. "Do you remember being in I.ipplincott's oflice the Saturday evening fiollowing Cul bert's death, when Collins and I were there ?" Mr. Kelley asked. "I don't remember," replied Woolleater. "l)o you mean to say that you weren't there ,or that you don't rememler ?" "I don't remember." "Did you see I.ippincott the neat day, Stunday ?" "I don't remember." "Did you not see him the following week, each day ?" "1 don't remember." "As a matter of fact, don't you remlora. ber you went there every day of that week?" said the lawyer, impatiently. JOHN WOOLBEATER, Proponent of Allegd Colbert Will Who ,.Testified Today. "I tiernmber I wee around town and I went there some times," the witness ad Iitted. Saw Wogner Day of Death. SVoolbeater could not remcmber whether he hbad seen Ed Wegner, one of the _lgeipewas to his will, between the Moo lr preceding and the Thursday upont vlhich Colbert died, but he rememurlred K' him the day ('Coll,ert died ill the eve tg.

I-c was with Wegner Sunday, Moday and" Tuesday and most of the week fol lowing Colbert's death. "As a matter of fact, did not you and Wcgner get full several times that week ?" Mr. Kelley asked. Judge Clancy wheeled around in his chair at that and said: "Get full on what-that broth ?" l'he court room laughced and Mr. Kelley denied that he referred to the broth. We ollwater denied that he had been full or drunk with Wegner. Woolbeater testified that lie did not know whether he saw Ilofreuter, the other wit (Continued on Page Three.)
