BUTTE MEN ARE ALL IN
FINEST SORT QF FETTLE
Have Yet to Meet Their First Defeat,
Although Anaconda, Helena and Great
Falls Players Are Showing Up in
Championship Form - Summary of
games Played at the Morning Session.
[SPECIAL TO INTER MOUNTAIN.]
Helena, August 13.-Some of the finest
tennis yet seen in Montana was witnesses
at the State tournament this morning
when a number of the stars of the state
battled for supremacy. The playing all
the way tllrough, from the opening singles
between O'Connor of Butte and B. Tipton
of Helena, to the doubles closing the
morning matches between the Rcilcy
brothers of Anaconda and Mattison and
Fowler of Great Falls, was fast and snappy.
A good crowd was in attendance and the
weather was fine. A solid court, with
little dust and no wind, added materially
to the brilliancy of the contests.
O'Connor won the opening series from
B. Tipton, 7-5, 6-I. The games were not
so one-sided as the score would indicate,
as Tipton's work was fast and his serving
terific. Hie. lacked control upon return,
however, and allowed himself to be worked
away from the net by the Butte man, whose
Renshaws were impossible. Tipton shows
himself to be in championship form anld
will do better work. ,
Fast Game by McLaughlin.
McLaughlin of Butte defeated O'Con
nor, 6-2, 6-2. These games were among
the best seen during the day, despite the
one-sided tab. Busch of Butte won from
Tenney of Hclcna, 6-2, 6-o. W. Bailey of
Butte won out from Chessman of Helena,
6-8, 6-4, 6-s. The first set was very fast
and it looked as if the Butte man was up
against it strong, as he was wild in hli
returns and lacked control in service. He
settled down to work in the second set and
took it and the third with apparent ease.
When warmed up Bailey is one of the
fastest men at the tournament.
These concluded the singles for the
morning schedule. In the doubles the
Bailey brothers of Anaconda, won from
Alattisont and Fowler of Great Falls, 6-8,
6-3, 7-5. 'lhese sets were all closely con
tested and some very pretty work was
witnessed. Superior balk line play and
coincerted action at the net saved the day
for the Anaconda iien.
Illllman of lelctna and Mattison of
Great Falls vill open the afternoon games.
This is expected to be a very fast match.
The lutteas player are all in fine form and
have yet to meet their first defeat.

POLICE DOUBT IDENTITY OF BODY
BURIED AS MINNIE MITCHELL
(BY ASSOCIATED PRI.SS.]
Chicago, August 'j3.-The mystery sur
rounding the Bartholin murder case baf
fles the Chicago police. Today the feel
ing grew stronger that the body of the
young woman found last Thursday in the
field at Seventy-fourth and State streets
and buried as Minnie Mitchell was not
that of the young woman. Coroner Trae
ger today was asked to exhume the body,
but, inasmuch as the family of the girl
did not join in the request, he declined.
He said the body was so decomposed that
such action would be of little avail. The
coroner's physician and other well known
medical men, however, state in positive
terms that eight days' exposure could not
have effccted such a change in the body.
Working on this theory, the police have
sent out tracers to find William J. Bartho
lin and his fiancec together alive.
Oscar Thomas, one of Mrs. Bartholin's
roomers, who is still retained by the po
lice, today once more was put through
the "sweating" process to induce him to
tell the police something definite that will
lead to a solution of the two murders.
He maintains he knows nothing. The
police have received word from Denver
that M. I.. R. Edwards, another of the
roomers at the Calumet avenue death
house, wou!d return if sent for. Chief
of Police O'Neil sent transportation this

SAYS ADNA ONCE DID HER A CRUEL
WRONG AND SHE WILL HAVE
JUSTICE OR BLOOD.
[BY ASSOCIATED I'RESS.]
Chicago, August 13.-Prepared to take
the law into her own hands, Mrs. Annie
White, of Verde, Arizona, is on her way
to New York, where she expects to have
a settlement with General Chaffee when
he arrives from the Philippines. She is
the widow of a discharged soldier of the
Eighth Infantry. On his death bed, her
husband exacted a promise that she would
make charges against General Chaffee for
alleged cruelty at Camp McDowell, a post
near the San Carlos reservation, Arizona
Mrs. White charges that General Chaf
fee, then a major, sent soldiers to their
home which was j4t outside the reserva
tion, burned their house and drove off
all their cattle.
When seen at El Paso, she said: "I
am going to New York to meet General
Chaffee, and if he don't give me satis
faction, I will shoot him hlead in his
tracks. I have preferred charges, but he
prevented them getting before congress.
I have told General Miles about it and
he says for me to wait. I have waited
long enough. I want a settlement and I
am going to have it. I will have hlb
life or satisfactory reparation."
SCI0U'RGE WAS SCOTCHED
AND NOT STAMPED OUT
Army Officers Say Cholera Will Rage in
Philippines Until the October Rain
Season Is On.
[aB ASSOCIATED PRISS.,
San Francisco, August 13.--The reason
given by army officers who have arrived
on the transport Lawton for the renewed
outbreak of cholera in the l'hilippines
is the premature withdrawal of precau
tionary measures by American officials at
Manila, under the impression that the
disease had been fought to a standstill,
The scourge had been merely scotched,
however, and with the relaxation of the
controlling grip, it resumed its work of
devastation with renewed vigor.
"We will not get rid of cholera in the
Philippines," said Lieutenant Assistant
Surgeon T. L. Rhodes, "until the rain
comes. That will be in October. In thi
meanwhile our people are doing every
thing possible to kcrp the disease within
