THE BUTTE INTER MOUNTAIN
VOL, XXII NO. 175 WEATHER FORECAST. BUTTE, MONTANA, THURSDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 9, 190o. PAIR, WARMER. PRICE FIVE CENTS EVERY OLD SOLDIER LOOKED ON AS SUSPECI Grand Army Committee Says Pension Board Too Hard on the Veterans. MANY GOOD CLAIMS ARE DISALLOWED EVERY YEAR Commander-in-Chief Torrance Makes a Rousing Address, in Which He Alludes to the Death of McKinley and the Need of Congressional Action in Re gard to Anarchy-Good Work of Wo man's Corps Commended. [aY ASSOCIATED PRESS.] Washington, Oct. 9.-Among the official documents presented to the encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic, which met here today was the report of the com mittee appointed last year to investigate the administration of the pension office by the then commissioner of pensions, Hon. H. Clay Evans, and to bring the result of the investigation to the attention of the president. The first name signed to the report was that of Commander in Chief G. Torrance, who stated in his address, that as soon as the report was brought to President Roose velt's notice the resignation of Commis sioner Evans was accepted. The investigation was conducted in Washington and the commission beganl their report by saying that Commissioner Evans afforded them every opportunity to make it thorough. speaking of the re sults of their inquiry into special com plaints they say that many of these were without merit, but that on the other hand many meritorious claims had been thrown out. "From a personal investigation," they say, "we are convinced that scores ot claims are rejected every day that should be allowed. Minimize Their Disabilities. "The dead line, or place of execution, of veterans claims was found in the medical division of the bureau, where unlimited discretion seems to be vested, to ignore the reports and ratings of examining sur beons and to minimize the soldiers' dis abilities." The report closes as follows: "We respectfully submit that it cannot reasonably be expected that the pension laws will be fairly construed and justly administered in accordance with the spirit and intendment by those who treat every applicant for a position with dis trust, regard his attorney as a fraud and brand the examining surgeons as incom petent and dishonest. "We contend that such an attitude on the part of those intrusted with the break ing of the Alabaster box of the nation's love disqualifies them to administer so sacred a trust. "Hailing from widely separated states of the union and familiar with the views of our comrades, we deem it our duty in making this report to declare that among the survivors of the war of the rebellion there is an irremovable belief and convic tion that the present commissioner of pen sions is not disposed to administer the duties of his office in that spirit of equity and justice to applicants for pensions which they have a right to expect, and while we are actuated by no feeling of un kindness toward the honorable commis sioner of pensions, we are convinced that justice to the soldier is impossible of at tainment under the l*esent administration of the pension bureau." For the Next Meeting. The three active candidates for the honor of entertaining the G. A. R. at the next annual encampment are: Saratoga, Atlantic City and San Francisco. There seems to be quite a sentiment in favor of choosing a city between the cities between the Ohio and Mississippi rivers, and it is said the encampment may go to neither of the three cities named, if a city in the Mid dle West actually pushes its claim. The leading candidates for commander in-chief are General Stewart of Pennsylva nia, Gen. John C. Black of Illinois, Colonel McElroy of Washington, and Gen. Daniel Sickles of New York. General Stewart is thought to have the lead at present, though General Black's friends claim about an equal number of delegates pledged. For senior vice commander the race apparently lies between J. M, Smith of Ohio, and tH. (Continued on Page Two.) EFFORT TO DISBAR BUTTE ATTORNEY 8UPREME COURT APPOINTS E. N. HARWOOD TO HEAR TESTIMONY BY DECEMBER 1. [SPECIAL TO INTER MOUNTAIN,] Helena, Oct. g,-Former Associate Justice E. N.

Mr. Davidson is a practicing attorney in the city and has always been an earnest HOWARD FORFEITS A BOND FOR $300 MRS. YBARRA SAYS DITCH-DIdGER IS TRYING TO RUN HER CHILDREN AND APPEALS TO LAW. George Howard is in trouble again. Only a few weeks ago he was.bound over to keep the peace on bonds of $3oo. fur nished by his employcrs, the Butte Plumb ing company, for whom George digs ditches occasionally. Mrs. Ybarra complained at the county attorney's office this morning that Howard had been making himself obnoxious to her self and her family again and asked for the protection of the law. This will mean that George or his bondsmen will be compelled to dig up $30oo, which will be forfeited and turned into the county treasury to help educate the youth of Butte. Besides forfeiting the bond Howard will also be charged with disturbing the peace. lie has been a sort of a protege at the Ybarra house for many years. Continued residence had made him feel that he was one of the family and that he was called upon to correct the children, reprimand the heads of the family and in other ways make his importance felt. Assistant County Attorney Dan Yancey will assist in the disillusion of the ditch digger, who will be arrested this afternoon. JOHN OLDS SAYS SUSAN LEFT HIM AND THEREFORE HE THINKS HE IS ENTITLED TO A DISSOLUTION OF MARRIAGE VOWS. John Olds has commenced a suit for divorce from his wife, Susan Olds, in the district court.
