MISS MADELINE IS UNDER WIRE FIRST SHUGOUGH PUSHES HER ACROSS THE WIRE HALF A LENGTH AHEAD OF TENDERGROWTH. Chilly winds cut down the attendance at the Montana Jockey club race track this afternoon. A fair-sized crowd was pres ent, but not so large as hitherto. The track was good. Rain had not fallen so heavily as in the city, and, contrary to expectation, the mud-horses were not at a premium.

MONA BELL IS SLOWLY RECOVERING S.TRENGTH Woman's Physicians Believe She Has a Chance to Live-Still Sticks to Original Story. Mona Bell, who lies at the hospital with a bullet hole in her body, is getting bet ter. Her physician stated today that she was on the road to recovery and that in his belief her life was out of danger. Sthe was alile to sit up and eat a watermelon, for which she called this afternoon. Nothing new has developed to show whose hand pulled the trigger which came near sending the unfortunate woman pre maturely to her grave, and from present appearances, the public will never know the story of the affair. What trifling testimony the officials have in the case would tend to show th;at she had not attempted suicide, but that she was shielding some one who cared so little for her that he tried to murder her. She still firmly adheres to her original story that the shooting was neither with murderous nor suicidal intent, but fur ther thin that nothing can be learned. Behaves Like a Maniac.

Park St., Butte EXCITING AFFAIR WHEN VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTIONS CALLED FOR LARGE SUM IS THROWN ON PLATFORM. [BY ASSOt'IATED PitBSs.] Peoria, Ill., July 2.-The convention of the Illinois prohibitionists today was a most exciting attfair. \\hen the call was made for voluntary contributions, the z,aoo delegates went wild with enthusiasm and, crowding to the stage, they showered offer ings upon it. It was a rain of wealth and the chair man and secretary of the convention were compelled to retreat from the stage until it had ended. Almost $5,ooo ill coin was heaped upon the platform. The committee upon platforms went into conference and two platforms were sub mitted to the convention for adoption. One touches on all the leading national issues and the other confines itself strictly to prohibition and woman's sufTrage. A bitter discussion on the two plat forms ensued. The convention finally adopted the minority report, which holds the prohibitionists to the two issues the liquor question and woman's suffrage. The following ticket was nominated: Treasurer, John Wilson, Mcl.canshoro; clerk of the supreme court, Hobert IH. Hardin. East St. I.ouis; superintendent of public instruction. Charles P. B. Blanchard. president of Wheaton college; trustees, University of Illinois, Marie C. Ilrchm, Chicago: Judge J. (). Cunningham, Urbana; Mrs. l)r. J. \. Akers, Sangamon. QUA'RR:EL AMONG DEMOCRATS Officials at the State Capitol at Logger heads About Public Funds. [lHelena Record. July 2.] Another breeze in addition to that which arose over the disallowance of his bill for the distribution of his boom report has sprung up in the last week or two around the head of State Aniitor J. 11. Calder head. It relates to his failure to include in the sum paid over to State Treasurer A. II. Barret as his receipts for the quarter ending May 31, a matter of over $j6,noo which he had collected. General fund warrants had bhen draw ing interest since F:ebriuary I, and there were signs that they would soon sell at a discount unless a call was soon made, or some steps taken to sustain the state's credit. The board of state land commis sioners took one step in this direction by deciding to invest the permanent school fund in general land warrants issued after July I. The next tiing to do was to call as many as possible of the warrants regis tered before that date and leave the rest to be taken up with the taxes which will be paid into the treasury during the next few months. Pressure From Gov.ernor. Then it came out that Air. Caldcrhelad had the large sum named, which he had collected from insurance companies during the quarter just ended, but had not paid into the treasury, as the law requires. Just what steps were taken to hasten the trans fer is not known, for much as the lmnicbers of the different fused parties may disagree, they endeavor to preserve a decorous ap pearance of harmony )before the public. Mr. Barret denied yesterday t..at he made any demand on Mr. Calderhead for the money, saying that the state a;uditor simply turned over what money lie had on hand. Rumor has it that the pressure brought to bear on Mr. Caldcrhead came from the governor. However it came about, the fact is that Monday, June 23, Mr. Calderhead turned over to Mr. Barret $36,801.84. Hle had held this money in his hands since May 31, the last day of the quarter, and had turneid over $12,160.53 on that day as the receipts of the quarter. The wide difference between the latter sum and the total for the corresponding quarter of last year caused inquiry and hence the breeze which has blown along the corri dors of the capitol. The call for general fund warrants followed next day, just as effect follows cause, and then came calm and outward peace. Mr. Calderhead's Explanation. Mr. Calderhead's explanation of his de lay in paying over the bulk of his receipts for the quarter until nearly another month had expired is that lie was delayed in checking up. "The year for which iinsur ance comllpanies pay fees to the state lends Marchl 3:," said he to the Record, "andl the law requires that the mlloney ie paid to the state auditor not later than May 15. I turned over to the treasturer at the end of May the payments which I had checked iup and thie balance as soon as I had themi checked up. The payillents came ill the formt of checks, which I ldelp.sit in the lbank as soon as they are received Iandi give tlhe companies credlit for them, but do not sendl them receipts until I have checked up tlhe amounts andl found them correct. All ex cept two or three companiies paid within the time provided biy law, and all the mloney should have been tulrned over to the treas urer at the end of May, but that never occurred to me, and I just tllurned over what I had checked. As the state treas urer was going to make a call for warrants, I turned over the balance without waiing for the end of the quarter." Stormy interview Reported. It is said Governor u oole and Auditor Calderhead had a stormy interview recent ly. The governor was nettled by the auditor's pointed remarks upon the subject of nepotism, made when the disturbance arose over the disallowance of Mr. Calder head's bill for the distribution of literature and intended as a slapl at the governor for his action in voting for his brothler for the position of custodian of the capitol. The governor lost no time when infornmed that the payment had been withheld in notify ing Mr. Calderhead that it lmust be made to the treasurer at once. There are stormy times around the capi tol these days. Pay Out Klondike Gold.

He saw him first afterward on the asst, he said. Nobody Mentioned Will. "So far as you know you never saw Hofreuter between the I th and the a st?" the lawyer asked, "No," the witness replied. Ilere the lawyer drew himself up and said impressively: "Now, Mr. Woollbeater, do you mean to trll tus that C'harlie C'ollert never told you of a will the whole week before his death ?" "Mr. Colbert didn't say nothing to tme thi.t he made a will," \Voolbeater returned clearly and emphatically. 'I hen Woollbater testified that neither Iilppincott nor \Vegner nor yet ligfreuter, ever tbll him about the will before the olth, although Colbert died on the 14th and they already knew all about the will and that lie was a beneficiary under it. They Found the Will. The sublject of just what passed between Lipplincott and \\'oollheater when the former carried Jhe good news to the latter of the existence of a will In which Uncle Charlie had handed all his worlily goods to them was taken in hand here by Mr. Kelley. "Tell us. Mr. Woollheater, just what Mr. Lippincott said and just what you said when he told you there was a will," said Mr. Kelley. "\Well, he sail, 'John, we founidl a will,' " replied \\'oolheater. "l)id he say who he meant by 'we?'" "Who did he meanu?" "h'e meant him and me." "lie meant that you and he had found a sill, did her" "That's what I untldertoodl.'" "Whait else did lie say ? "lle said. 'We'll go up and file the sill in tile morllillng.'" "Was that all he saida l Then Woolltheatr said that lie went to Lippincoitt's office in the umorning per their app'iuntment. lit met Major l)ennii on the way oni ;ranit street. Iennis said: '"Let 's go to I.ippinett's othffice." 'liThey weit to theil ollice. I)ennis said: "Ct' lbelrt left a will." It the ollice they all talked about findling the will. "\\'h'ire did Lippincott get the will?" Mr. Kelley asked \Vootheater. "\V''gner had the will in hisa pocket," the w\iltess rleplied. A"\\he cre were Wegnuer and I Iofreter-" "Hright outside the olfice." "\'' ft tet Dennisi by accaitnut. I sop pose their presence there w;'as accidental, too. Is that so ?" "I doin't know." "\What did you do before comllinig to rte court.huse to file the will i" "I don't know that we did anything." "1)o youa remember that you did aly tlhiig ?" "1 don't know." Lippincott on the Stand. Judge lippincott, \Voolbeater's fellow ptroplnenit ill the conitest, was the next witness. lie testified that lhe had told Public Administrator t'ollin*s that there was a will: that he knew it; that if the oflicial had suarclh d Colbert's calin without find ing it, it must he in lNixon'II or FIorbis' office. If it was not Iat either of those places.she did inot kniiow where it was. lHe was asked if he had told Adtlph .Wel 'siii,. i a conti'etant's wit iless., that ihe' had the will in his s;afe and woull not let anlylbodly see it till after C(olbert was buried. "No, sir; I did teot," he replied. I hie aenswer was stricken oeut, the courrt hohlding that the question was improper for the reasone that it was lealg.'l The rules of evidence permiitted the qites tioring attiornery to ask what conversa tion took place bet weern the witlness and w etzbtein. lhnt not to refer to what We¥tz steiln had said. M r. Lippincott detailed a conversation between himself and W. A. Adamns about Collert's attentions toward himself. 'hI' witness said: "''Mr. Adams said 'l.ip, I know of the rrlatlons that existeid between you anld old Charley, eeand I have heard hime say he wotlde take care of you after his death---something like he has during your life." Woo\'ll:eater testified yesterday after noon to what took place aIt tihe timelllr i:l on the day of ('olbert's death, andl ix plained why it was that sc had told r several persos that he kneew of no will made b,' C( ltert. Knew of No Will. lie said that as a matter of fact he knew of no will till seven days after ('ol hert's death. iColbert died Feblruary r4, eout, and Wooelleater testified that ihe lived wilhin eoo feet of the eitter's ca;tiee for io years and saw him every day dur ing the last three years of his life and was employ.d by Colbert to attend upon aled cook for him. lIc saw Colbert fir% in tile morning of the day the latter died, he having spent th^e night inl his owIn cabin, while Collert slept i In his. e went for I)r. .Moore and for Judge I.ippincott at Colbert's direction, he said. Culbert died at 3:45 o'clock, Wool heater testilied, and the witness said that Ed We\gner and Frank Ilofretiter, the two witnesses to the Woollieater-Liplpitncott will, came to Collert's cabin at 3 o'clock. "Judrle l.ippincott," said the witness, "caner there about 4 o'clock and stayed about half an hour. H ,egner antd lIIt reuter stayed till s o'clock. While they and Judge L.ippincott were at Colbert's cabin, I was arournd that cabin and in my own." Was Alone With Colbert. ,Woolrleater said that he was with ('ol hert and noboldly else was there when the latter died. After the death the witness called in other people in the neighbor hood. "I first saw this will the night before the day I brought it to the court hlotse and filed it," said Woolbeater, referring to the instrument which gives him allnd Lippincott the old German's property. "That was a week after Colhert's death." Woolbeater testified that P'ublic Adrnmit inster Collins searched Colbert's papers the day after Colbert's death and asked the witness if he knew of any will. Wool beater said that he told Collins that lhe did not know of any will. "Major Dennis had this will when I first saw it, said Woolbeater. "Thle d;ay before that was the first day that I ever heard of this will." That was all the witness had to say about the document which is so much to him and his fellow proponent, Judge Lippincott, on direct ex amination.
