Petition Presented to the Board This
Morning and Prompt Action Taken
-New Thoroughfare Will Open Up
Large Mining and Farming Districts
and Make Them Tributary to Butte.
Manager J. R. VWharton of the lButte
Electric Railroad company apl eared be
fore the board of county conmmissioners
this morning with a petition, signed by a
number of the taxpayers in and around
Horse Canyon and Columbia Gardenr, ask
ing that a certain county road already in
use be condemned, and that the board
order a new one opened.
If they open the new road, the com
missioners will connect the city with a
large section of Jefferson and Silver Bow
counties which are at present inaccessible
from Butte.
Mr. Wharton presented his peti
tion, which is signed by F. Augustus
Heinze and a number of well-known resi
dents of the county, and is accompanied
by a chart showing the proposed changes
in the road. In all, it comprises but a
little more than a moile of road, but it
will, if constructed, join an old road run
ning northwest from Columbia Gardens
and across the main range to a rich agri
cultural and mineral section.
It crosses the following mineral claims,
from the stockholders of which consent
for the road has been obtained: Canyon,
Macaroni, Colleen Bawn, Little Ida, Wil
liam, Rockbreaker and Lioness.
The old road leaves a point at the east
end of Montgomery street, on the Park
City addition, and runs to a point on the
Lioness lode claim, situated back of Co
lumbia Gardens.
The proposed road will run from a point
immediately northwest of the old one,
across the claims mentioned above, ending
on the Lioness claim.
Viewers Are Appointed.
After listening to the suggestions of
Mr. Wharton, Chairman Clark appointed
County Surveyor C. F. Munroe, James II.
Lynch and one other to be named by Com
missioner liaggerty as a committee to
view the proposed change and report to
the board.
"In no place wi the grade be heavier,than
to per cent," said Manager Wharton in
presenting his view to the board, "and it
will be of considerable advantage to the
ranchers across the range who can come
to the city to trade. Of course, I am not
personally interested in that section of the
petition. My intention is to enlarge the
Gardens as we own the land, and can, by
changing the present route, make it a
convenience to the residents of that sec
tion. We feel that we are not asking any
more than is right."
Chairman Clark took occasion to re
mark that if the few roads leading into
Butte were repaired it would be of incal
culable benefit to the merchants of the
"It would pay the merchants," said he,
"to put $3,ooo or $4,000 into the improve
ment of those roads and bring trade to the
city that is now diverted and which natur
ally belongs to Butte."
Besides F. Aug. licinze, the following
names are attached to the petition: I'. J.
Brophy, Robert McHride, W. ), Thornton,
Butte Electric Railway Co., George For
sythe, F. T. McBride, J. R. Wharton and
Henry Brundy.
Helena, Sept. zo.-The state board of
pardons today approved of another of
Governor Toole's pardons, that of Charles
Gordon, serving a life sentence for a mur
der committed in Choteau county in 188g.
Gordon shot and killed one Lavelle. It
was alleged, in efforts to get Gordon
pardoned, that he was not properly de
fended during his trial.
Gordon was convicted and sentenced to
be hanged, but Governor Leslie commuted
the sentence to life imprisolnent. Gov
ernor Rickards subsequently granted a con
ditional pardon to take effect in 1906, when
Gordon would be 50o years of age. Gov
ernor Toole granlted an unconditional
James Coleson Files an Answer in Suit
by William Cocanougher.
James Coleson, defendant in a suit
brought against him by William Coca
nougher, for the possession of a piece of
land known as the Coleson ranch, today
filed an answer to the complaint with the
clerk of the tastrict court. In the answer
Coleson denies that the plaintiff ever has
been the owner of the land, and adds that
he (the defendant) has been the owner
and in possession of the property for the
past two years. For all of which he de

Mayor Davey, Chief of Police Reynolds, City
Attorney Lamb and Four Policemen May
Be Landed on Court's Order.
Unless something unexpected happens
Mayor Davey, Chief Reynolds, City A:
torney l.amb and four policemen will be
arrested by the sheriff of Silver Ilow
county and brought before one of the
judges of the Second judicial district to
answer to the charge of contempt of
court. This Is the result of an action
commenced this afternoon by the Montana
Jockey club.
Today's proceedings are an echo of the
old clash between the city and county au
thorities on the poolroom question and
are directly the result of a raid made by
Chief Reynolds and his men at the race
track yesterday and the arrest of Eddie
Sachs, a well-known pool seller in the
employ of the Montana Jockey club.
It will be remembered that in accord
ance with an ordinance passed by the city
council last July, concerning the selling of
pools on the races, the chief attempted to
arrest the poolsellers at thie track, when
an injunction was issued by Judge Ilarney
restraining him.
Opened Up Full Blast.
This restraining order was the signal
for all the poolrooms to continue in busi
ness, the council having concluded that
there was no use attempting a prosecu
tion. The order, however, was consliere I
by the chief to be in operation during the
continuance of the 62 days' racing, and
yesterday he took four policemen with him
to the track and arrested Sachs for viola
tion of tlhe city ordinance.
Now comnies the Montana Jockey chlh, of
which Eddie Sachs is one of the stocklol.l
ers, and says it is going to fight the action
of the chief. Already papers ar being
drawn up aik:ig the :cot -t to ordler the
arrest of the city officials so thiit they may
be brought before the iudg.: to slow cause
for their action and to explain why they
are not in contempt of court.
As the case conmes under the jurisdiction
of the county the sheriff's office will be
called upon to execute the warrant and the
mayor and the other officials will be taken
to the county jail just as if they were
arrested for any other misdemeanor.
Will Have Bonds Ready.
Doubtless the officials will have bonds
ready, so that Jheir time in custody may
be as short as possible. It is not improb
able that the arrests will take place some
time tomorrow. As there is not much

Giaivs, I aiyti, Sept. in. An investi

Assi iated P'ress into the sinking of the
"irminists' gunboat, Crete-a I'ierrot. at the
Centranlce of this lharbor, Saturday, *nlows
that Admhiral Killi.k, her cionlmnanidr, per
soinally fired tlhe aft Inagazilne of thlil ves
sei when the ;German gilunboat, P'anther,
allttemptd to capture her, and that he
apparently wesnt down wits his ship. The
I'allthier, whlich had previously attelpteI,
I, Ioard the Crete a,- 'ierrot, the lattcr
Ibeing moored to he shore, re'versed her
nligines when the miilagazine exploded, and
on:e hmour after fired 1,o shots from her gunsl
at I.e Cret-a- I'irrot in order to linishi
the work of sinking her. The l'anther

It is claimied that the rifles anril iimacaiile
guns of thie Lrcte-a-l'ierrot have Ibeen
sa ved,
The body of Admiral Kiiick was recov
ered Saturday afternoon arid was buried
the saiuie eveniing.
Went Down With Ship.
The surgeon of the Crete-a-l'ierrot, who
was asleep ini his cabi and two sailors of
tlat vessel, perished.
The l'anther is expected to reach Cape
Ilayticn on Friday. A newspaper of Port
au-l'rince, July 14, contaiuied the follow
ing telegram fromn Admiral Killick to Gen
eral ltoiserond ..anal, provisional governor
of llayti :
"(;onaives, July 12.-Ifoiserond Canal,
P'ort-au-Prince.--Killick does not fear any
thing. Will blow up his ship and com
pany for the sake of the national honor.
You alone remain responsible."
Previous to sending the message to
GeCjeral Canal, it appears, Admiral Killick
had received orders from the latter to
give Ulp his vessel to Lieutenant Reid, his
second in command, and it was also re
ported that the provisional government had
requested the Uniteu States gunboat Mari
etta and the French cruiser 'Assis to
capture the Crete-a-Pierrot; hence the
defiant dispatch to General Boiserond
