VOL XXII NO. 5 WEATHER OC. BUTTE, MONTANA, MONDAY EVENING, - SEPTEMBER 8, 1902. FAIR WEATHER PRICE FIVE CENT HAYTIEN GUNBOAT IS SUNK BY GERMAN WARSHIP Panther Is Ordered to Cap ture Firminist Vessel at Port Gon I ves. CLAIMED THE SHIP WAS ACTING AS A PIRATE German Captain Orders Them to Strike Their Colors and to Take No Offen sive Action or an Immediate Attack Would Follow-Only Fifteen Minutes Given-Crew of the Crete-a-Pierrot Abandoned the Sinking Vessel. S. [Y 'As::OCIATED e.Fs.] Cape lHayticn, Sept. 8.-T-he Gulnboat Crete-a-Pierrot, which was in the service of the Firminist party, has becn sunk at the entrance of the Hlarbor of Gonaivcs by the German gunboat Panther. The German gunboat ';anther arrived September 5th and received instructions from the German government to capture the Firminist gunboat Cret',-a-Pierrot. She left immediately for Gonaives, the seat of the Firminist government. The Panther found the Crete-a-Pierrot in the harbor of Gonaives and the commnander of the gunboat informed Admiral Killick on the Crete-a-Pierrot that he must re move his crew and surrender his vesset In five minutes. Admiral Killick askeo that this time be extended to 15 minutes This request was granted on the condi. tion that tile arms and ammnunition on board the Cretc-a-l'ierrot should be aban. doned when her crew left her. The crew of the Crete-a-Pierrot left that vessel amid great disorder. At the end of IS minutes the Panther sent a small boat carrying one officer and 2o sailors who were to take possession of the Firminist gunboat. When these men had arrived at a point about zo yards from the Cretc-a-Pierrot, flames were seen to break out on board of her. She had been fired by her crew before they left her. The Panther then fired on the Crete-a Pierrot until she was completely im mersed. Thirty shots all told were fired. There is much feeling against the Firm inists and their cause is considered to lie a bad one. Soldiers are leaving here to attack St. Marc. Ordered to Capture the Pierrot. Berlin, Sept. 8.-The marine minister has given out the following official report of the sinking of the Firminist gunboat Crete-a-Pierrot : "Captain Eckermnann of the Panther hal received orders to capture the piratical gunboat Crete-a-Pierrot. The Panther went there from Port au Prince to Go naives, where it completely surprised th Crete-a-Pierrot. Ihe German comman dant sent the following ultimatum: "'Strike your colors within IS minutes and disembark from your ship without un dertaking any defensive measures what ever, otherwise an immediate attack will follow.' "The Panther had already cleared for action. The Crete-a-Pierrot hauled down her flag within the alloted time and the crew disembarked. The Panther then in tended to take the Crete-a-Pierrot in tow, but an explosion of her aft powder maga. zine soon occurred, which was evidently effected by the Crete-a-Pierrot's crew. The explosion destroyed her stern and set the vessel on fire, rendering taking her in tow impossible, especially as further explo sions followed. As this was regarded as a hostile act and as the guns afore were still in condition, the Panther's captain caused the forward magazine to be explod ed through a cannonade. After this was exploded the Crete-a-Pierrot broke up and sank. The admiral was on board with the (Continued on Page Three.) THINK POLITICS INFLUENCED HER MISS HUMPHREY IS EXONERATED OF CHARGE OF CHEATING PRE FERRED BY MRS. LUTHER. [SPECIAL TO INTER MOUNTAIN.] Helena, Sept. 8.-Superintendent -of Public Instruction Welch has returned from Malta in Valley county where he was called to straighten out trouble be tween Mrs. Carrie E. Luther, the county superintendent, and Miss Leah Humphrey. The state superintendent after investigat ing, has decided in favor of the teacher, Miss Humphrey, and has approved her examination papers and issued to her a professional certificate. While taking an examination at Maha the other day, Miss Humphrey was ac cused by the county superintendent r. cheating and denied the privilege ot pro ceeding with the examination. Mrs, Lu ther, the superintendent, went further and took up the teacher's certificate held by Miss Humphrey and under which she has been teaching at Malta for two years. Both Mrs. Luther and Miss Humphrey are republican candidates for county superintendent of schools this fall and it is charged by Miss Humphrey's friends that Mrs. Luther's action was prompted by spite. State Superintendent Welch has exonerated Miss Humphrey from charges preferred against her. Miss Humphrey has the endorsement of the echool board and many promi.sent people of Malta, TEACHERS LEARN LATEST METHODS INSTITUTE OPENS IN HIGH SCHOOL AUDITORIUM WITH 150 IN ATTENDANCE. EASTERN WAYS DISCUSSED BY MAN FROM WINDY CITY Assembly Is Divided Into Classes and by Passing From One to Another, Each Learns the Means Employed by Others-What Is Going to Happen in the Meeting the Rest of the Week. About 15o teachers in the public schools of Silver Bow county were present at the opening session of the eighteenth annual institute of teachers in the auditorium of the High School this morning. The institute was called to order by Miss Mary Mullins, county superintendent, at Io:3o o'clock, being followed by a piano solo by V. C. Matlock and an ad dress by R. G. Young, the superintendent of schools. Mr. Young impressed upon the teachers the necessity of harmony be tween the instructors and themselves and maintained that no good could be derived from the institute unless such harmony prevailed. He asked them to be prompt in their attendance. Prof. II. H. Swain of the State Normal school in Dillon also addressed the teach ers on the subject of professional training. He said the whole basis of education was founded upon the science of the mind. He expressed the belief that every teacher should know all about the workings of the child's brain and be able to take advantage of theemn in imparting knowledge to the child. Eastern Methods. Prof. Lewis of Walkerville delivered a short address, as did also W. P. Roche leau, of Chicago who is scheduled for a lec ture before the institute Thursday evening. Prof. Rocheleau's remarks were more in the way of introducing himself to the teachers than an effort to educate them on eastern methods of teaching. He termed his remarks "breaking the ice." His manner of delivery stamps him as a man whose education in his profession has not been neglected. In fact he is regarded as one of the leading educational lights of Chicago and his address Thursday will doubtless be plethoric of eastern methods of teaching that might be put to splendid use in the schools of Butte. Ileretofore all of the work done by the institutes in Silver Bow county has been carried on in one large open session with the teachers all together, but with the ex ception of the opening session today, the real work will be divided and confined to the various grades in different rooms of the High School building. By this method, however, the teachers will pass from one grade to another and acquire knowledge of each. The instructors comprise Miss Mary Mullins, who will conduct the exercises; Miss Alice Dinsmore, drawing; Mrs. Verna Tracey Young, diacritical marking and orthography; Miss Mamie Finnegan, Music; Miss B. F. Huntsman, language, literature and primary work; Prof. W. F. Rocheleau, didactics, reading and history; Superintendent Young, arithmetic, geog raphy, spelling and other branches; Dr. .t. W. Traphagen, methods in science teach ing . Program of Assembly. The program of assembly exercises is as follows: Tuesday from 9 to 9:3o a. m.-"Educa tion for Future Work," Dr. F. \V. Trap hagen. Wednesday from 9 to 9:3o a. m.-Ad dress by Prof Rocheleau. Thursday from 9 to 9:30 a. m.-Address by State Superintendent W. W. Welch. Friday from p to 9:3o a. m.-"The Preparation of Teachers," by Miss Mary Mullinis. Thursday evening the following pro gram will be rendered: Instrumental music, orchestra; vocal solo, Miss Ida G.

Should President Roosevelt make his contemplated trip to the Pacific coast, it is altogether probable that he will visit Butte. No date has yet been set for the com mencement of the journey and it is not at all certain that the nation's chief ex ccutive will find the time to leave Wash ington, but should he do so, Butte will be prepared to give him a royal welcome. Mayor Davey and the Business Meni's association have taken the matter up ana today issued a formal invitation to Mr. Roosevelt. Should the reply be favora ble then the citizens of Butte generally will arrange for the reception.

The Alice still has much valuable un developed property. COURTHOUSE CLERKS RESUME WORK TODAY County Commissioners Firm and the Clerks Yield, but Will Kick on August Salary. Silver Bow county's oflicial strike went out in a fizzle but there is a chance for further argument in the question submitted by two of the deputies to the county com missioners today. Three of the four strikers returned to work acquiescing to the decision of the commissioners that their salaries should be reduced from $r5o a month to $zoo, the change to take effect for the Septem ber salary, but as they discovered that they were to be paid on the $zoo rate for August, they registered a vociferous kick at the office of the county fathers this morning. They claim that they were not notified at the beginning of the month that their salary was to be reduced for the month and consequently were work ing under a false assumption. After laying their side of the case be fore the commissioners they were as. sured that they would he treated fairly and the county auditor would be asked to take the matter up with a view to giv ing them what was rightfully coming to them.
