THE BUTTE INTER MOUNTAIN
VOL. XXII NO. to9 WEATHER FORECAST. BUTTE, MONTANA, THURSDAY EVENING, JULY 24, 1902. FAIR WEATHER, PRICE FIVT E CENS BELIEVED THAT TRACY IS BACK IN VICINITY OF OREGON PRISON r [nv rS0CATD .u PRESS.. Salem, Ore.. July 24.-A Statesman spe cial from Woodburn says that Frank Pick ens, a young man living in the outskirts of town, met a bicycle rider at 7 o'clock last night whom he thought was Tracy, the outlaw. Pickens was on the path when the supposed Tracy rode up on a wheel and asked the direction and dis tance to Salem. He wore a brown derby bat. carried two Winchester rifles strapped ".. ·:: i '... ,-. ,, Mr. Tracy- Outdoor life ils rulinin' me complexion. Diell ooks good to me for a sumimer home. to a bicycle and two revolvers in his belt. After securing the information desired the stranger rode on in the direction of Sa lem. Eighty rods behind the first man came another wheelman, also heavily armed and apparently following the first. Pickens at once hastened to town and notified the authorities. At Ilubbard the same men were seen a half-hour earlier. Here there were three, all heavily armed, the leader answering the description given at Woodburn. The three were on bicycles and riding toward Salem. Here a num JAPAN LAYS CLAIM TO MARCUS ISLAND CAPTAIN ROSEHILL' NOTIFIED THAT HE MUST OFFER NO RESISTANCE TO JAPANESE RESIDENTS. EXTREMELY DESIR.ABLE NO COLLISION OCCUR Japanese War Ship Carries Message to the Captain and It Is Believed That There Will Be No Clash Between Passengers and Coolies-Both Are After Guano Deposits. [BY ASSOCIATED PRISS.] Washington, July 24.-The Japanese government has served notice on the state department that it claims possession of Marcus island, toward which is now head ing an American expedition under Captain Rosehill, with a purpose of exhausting its guano deposits. Regarding it as extremely desirable that no collision occur, the state departmnept has taken measures to advise Captain Rose hill that he must offer no resistance if he should fall in with a Japanese warship, which is also speeding for the island. Captain Rosehill landed on this island about 13 years ago. He posted a notice setting forth his claims to the island and hoisted the United States flag. Then he sailed away from the island, leaving it unoccupied, a fact which may vitiate his title. Of these facts he informed the treasury department, but he neglected for many years to file in the treasury department the bond required by the guano laws of the Island; in fact, this bond was only filed within the last year. Meanwhile, finding a deserted island, some Japanese landed and began to take away the guano. There are believed to be two score of them now on the island, and the Japanese government holds that their title is good. The Jap anese warship carries the message from this government to Rosehill, advising him to offer no resistance and, as it will probably reach Marcus island, distance only t,ooo miles from Yokohama, before the Roschill schooner, which sailcd from Honolulu, 2,000 miles distant, it is believed that there will be no clash between the schooner's passen gers and the Japanese coolies on the island. Discovered by a Japanese. [Bi ASSOCIATIOD 1'sess.] Yokohama, July 24.-It is officially an nounced that a Japanese cruiser will con vey the diplomatic agent of Japan to Mar cus island. The expectation is that it is the desire of the Japanese government to reassure the Japanese r3sidents of the island and convince them that Rosehill's claim is untenable. It is asserted here that the island was annexed to Japan in 1898, and that it was discovered by a Japanese subject In 1879. Manila Cigar Makers Strike. Cay ASSOCIATED PR1SS.] Manila, July 24.-About 7,000 cigar makers of Manila have gone on strike. They demand a material increase in wages. ber of reliable people saw the strangers and all agreed the leader resembled the notorious Tracy's published pictures closely. The prison authorities at Salem were at once notified and Superintendent Lee of the penitentiary at once picketed ex tra guards on the wall and sent out a full force to surround the prison yard in order to prevent any raid on the wall guards. The Oregon penitentiary is surround ed by armed gutards watching for the approach of the desperado. While it is not believed that the men seen at \Woodburn are Tracy and coml rades, the prison officials are proceeding upon the theory that the report received may be correct. There is practically a dead line ex tending around the prison at the distance of a rifle shot and the prison guards last night telephoned Sheriff Colbath not to approach the penitentiary unless called for, as he might lie shot by the sentinels.

Va., July 24.-Two negroes, whose names are unknown, were lynchllq at Womnelsdorf, near here, last night by an angry mob numbering several hundred. The first victim was shot and killed in the stationhouse, and the second was taken to the park, where lie was hanged and then riddled with bullets and cut to pieces. Both whites and negroes are enraged and in arms. The trouble grew out of yesterday's mur der of Chief of Police Wilmneth of Elkins. Several other arrests have been made and lynching seems imminent. The dead blacks were caught near Bel lington and locked up there, the officers fearing lynching if taken to Elkins. Negroes are leaving on every train. The lynched men were horribly muti lated and their bodies left on the com mols. SURRENOERS AND CONFESSES Objecting to His Wife's Attentions to Another Man He Kills Both. [Iiy E,socilArt:lD (iss.] Atoka, I. T., July 24.-Charles Reeves has surrendered to the police here, explain ing that it was he wlio killed his wife here several days ago, also her mother, Mrs. Grant and John Knuckles. Reeves said that, with his wife, he had lived happily until the appearance of Knuckles on the scene two months ago. Since that time his wife had treated him with indifference, which maddened him, especially since her parents encouraged her attentions to Knuckles. Coal Mine Starts Up. [1Y ASSOCIATED tRESS,] Tamaqua, Pa., July 24.-The Lehighl Coal and Navigatien company today re sumed operations at its No. 2 mine, one of the largest in the region. The move was unexpected. This is the first large col liery to resume. So far the striking men have made no effort to molest the place. It is believed that other companies will now make an effort to mine coal. Molders on a Strike. [BY ASSOCIATED PRESS.] Alliance, O., July 24.-Several hundred molders employed at the local plant of the American Steel Casting company went on a strike today, when asked by the company to stand good for bad castings. Sailing for France. New York, July 24.-Gen. Horace Por ter, United States ambassador to France, Secretary of War Elihu Root and Gen. Leonard Wood, sailed on La Savele to day for Framce. Prison officials do not believe Tracy has sufficient interest in any of the con victs at the penitentary to induce him to attempt to liberate them. It is felt, how ever, that it would be in keeping with his other bold and desperate dcels if he should return for the purpose of shooting some of the prison guards. While the men seen were probably hunt ers, Sheriff Colbath believes it possible that one of them is Tracy. iunnmmm ummmmmnm un1 Have Not Seen Outlaw. [1i ' AS. lo' IA IFi Pill 5.

COURT-MARTIAL OF LIEUT. HICKMAN MAJOR GARDINER HUNTING TESTI MONY FOR THE PROSECUTION AND IS RESPONSIBLE. lluY PSSOCIA~IT li PRtIF.l,] Manila, July 24.- -The court-martial of l.ieutenanit Edwin A. Hiickmani of the First cavalry, on the charge of ducking in a pond two natives of L.aybias because they refused to guide hi to to te stronghold of the insurgent leader, Caballes, and with having ducked a third native, who died from maltreatmielnt, has been concludled after two brief sittings, and Lieutenant Hickman is believed to have beet: ac quitted. The defense admitted all the specifica tions ini the first charge, taking exception only to the word "unlawful" and pleaded justitication under general orlder eoo and the condition prevailing in Labias prov ince. The defense also produced a tele graphic order from General Chaffee, urg ing the location of Caballes, regardless of the masure necessary to do so. 'I he de fense disclaimed any d,.-:ire to shift the responsibility and said the telegriam pro. duced showed the urgent necesity for lo cating Caballes. L.ieutenant lHickman testified regarding the charge that lie had caused the death of a third native and sa:d that witnesses at the Gardiner inquiry testified that this man died from injuries, that he was not ducked and that lie was not mole'teil. T'he prosecution regarded the latter charge as being unworthy of credence. Colonel Sitith, who was a witness for the defense, testified that Major Gardiner was responsible for the charge against Lieutenant Ilickman, and said that Major Gardiuer had sought for testimony to be brought against the lieutenant.

Bryan rcspon;tded to the toutt "The lBasis of llarltony." lie said in part: ' li view of numllcerous hlarimony dinners and the discord they create(d, it may lie out of place to consider tie basis of har motay. The word 'harmtolny' is ctlphoni ous, tnd the idea which it cotnveys is a dclwghtful one. Ilarteiony is but a syno nym Ifor order and is not tihe result of ch :ice, but a product of inlexorable law. . '1o attcempt to patch up an apparent harmont y between those who are not in sy CIIIthy with democratic purposes is not otnly a waste of time, but would prove dis astroust. The men who deserted the party in i,,,i6 may be divided into two classes thu, c who left bec(ause they understo)od tilter i,',sue presented, and those who left bect:.ln.e they did not understeand the real issue of the contest. Until the former are coipletecly chanlgecd in their symplathies, they caitiot return to the party without injury to it. T'he latter will ie reconciled to the party when they themselves become aware of the real character of the life anti death truggle now being waged Ie twic, plutocracy and deiit cracy. I say pluto'racy because the aristocracy of to (day is onie of wealth rather than of birth, and it ilncludes niot only those who have be, i aliienated fronl tihe cornmmon p'eople by the possession of great wealth, but those whi, although without wealth, pander to it aind itea:tsure all things by a imoney s ta : l, rd .
