THE BUTTE INTER MOUNTAIN
VOL, XXII NO. 177 WEATHER FORECAST. BUTTE, MONTANA, SATURDAY EVENING, OCTOBFR ii, 1902. FAIR, WARMER. PRICE FIVE CENTS NEW ORLEANS TORN BY STIKE OF CAR MEN Mayor Issues Official Procla mation Declaring City in a State of Siege. CITIZENS' COMMITTEES ORGANIZE INTO TROOPS No Efforts Made to Run Cars Today and Status Will Not Change Tomorrow, as Sunday Crowd Is Feared-But the Governor Is Personally Directing the 'Movements of the Soldiers and There Will Be Things Doing Monday. [nv ASSOCIATED PRFSS.] New Orleans, Oct. I .--The failure of all efforts to bring about a settlement of the differences between the striking street car men and the New Orleans Railway company, has, it is feared, brought the strike situation here to an acute stage and preparations are being made today at the various armories in the city to carry into effect wsith a strong hand, the proclamation issued today by Governor Heard, demanding a restoration of order and the suppression of violence. All the members of the local militia are ready to respond to the call to arms at a moment's notice and the troops from the country parishes have been ordered to hold themselves in readiness to'coun. to this city on short notice. A citizens' committee has been organ ized and efforts are being made to or ganize into independent companies to sup port the state companies. No Effort to Run Cars. No efforts were made to run cars to day and it is the general impression that the first attempt under the new condi tions wi. be postponed until Monday in order to prevent interference by the mobs that would certainly gather on Sunday. All negotiations between the state and city officials, the railway company and striking street car employes came to an end today vheni the car men refused to accept the proposition made by the com pany and the railway company refused the proposition of the car men to submit all differences to a board of seven arbitra tors. As soon as these conditions were made known to the governor he issued the following proclamation: "To the People of New Orleans: Dur ing the past two weeks your city has been in a condition of unusual and grave ex citement and of frequently recurring causes for apprehensions of tumult by mobs and bloodshed, has ensued. This condition has depressed trade, arrested public intercourse and the peaceful pur suits of population. The greatest for bearance has been vainly exercised by the authorities and every effort made to re move every cause or pretext for conlplaint. The time has now arrived to bring this abnormal condition of affairs to a close and by a firmn and vigorous means to re establish order and tranquility and the suptremacy of the law. "I therefore request all peaceable citl ze7ns not to congregate in crowds on streets and thoroughfares and I urge upon them to discontinue all undue excitement and acts of violence, and to make known to officers intrusted with the administration of the law any breaches of the peace. ATTORNEY GENERAL COMES DOWN HARD SUPREME COURT SITS UPON HIM IN CONNECTION WITH CASCADE COUNTY STOCKS. IISPECIAL TO INTER MOUNTAIN.] Helena, Oct. II.--The supreme court has turned down the attorney general In an attempt to force the Cascade county authorities to revise their assessment rolls with regard to bank stock. The official endeavored to obtain a writ from the court ordering the assessor and county attorney to accede to his demand that banks be assessed for the full valve of their stock. Chief Justice Brantly, in announcing the court's decision today, stated that the theory of the petition seemed to be that the law intended that the returns of the banks of their capital stock to the as sessor was to Ihe the basis for assessment, but that such theory was unconstitutional, in that the return was intended only for the guidance of the assessor in assessing the stock to the different stockholders, they being taxed on their individual-hold ings. As to the mandate commanding the county attorney to consent to the cor rection of the assessment books, the court refused it, for the reason that it did not appear that there had been any abuse of discretion, in that that officer may have based his refusal upon the presumption that the stock had already been assessed to individual stockholders. It is likely that the Cascade district court will be applied to by the attorney general. New Freight Terminal. New York, Oct.

AND ASK HOW OFTEN YOUSE WANT TO VOTE, ANYWAY, EH? Amusing Conflict Between Rival Fac tions sohen the Judges Come to Be Appointed in the Various Precincts, Some of Which Are Consolidated Be cause Voters Are as Hen's Teeth. There was a lively scene in the county commissioners' office this morning while the board was busy with the appointment of judges of election. Almighty Voice Pete Gilligan was there in the interests of the Monte Cristo of the Butte Mountain. W. M. Walsh, chairman of the cen tral committee of the labor party was there in the interests of the labor party. Mike Tonrey was there in the interests of the "faithful forty." There were no side kickers for the republicans and demo crats, while Mr. Haggerty of the board saw that the socialists had some representation, the party getting eight out of the j3o judges appointed. In many of the precincts there were no recommendations for judges on the lists submitted by the central committees of the various parties. There was one party, the populists, however, that had a nominee for the office every time. Mike Tonrey, now deputy in the oflice of the clerk and recorder, but former chairman of the populist convention, but who does not seem to be in particularly good odor at present with the central committee, had a list of his own which he wanted considered before that of the committee. How Queer That He Should. He advocated the adoption of his own list, while the comnmissioners maintained that that of the committee was the only reasonable one to accept. During the discussion, Chairman P. J. Gilroy of the populist central committee came in and the fun started. The family skeleton of the populist party was pulled out of the closet and paraded before the board alnd the crowd of spectators. Tonrey told how there were now popu lists in certain precincts and how he had two imported and placed in Mrs. Tulcahy' boarding house "and now," he said, "you have not named either of them for judge of election." lie became more heated as the discus sion proceeded and finally told Gilroy that he was a better populist than Gilroy was. There was a pie in sight and the populists were after it. Nothing could be done with the meeting until the fight was over. Chairman Clark broke in to say that the newspapers were misinforming the public in saying that the populist party was dead. "They are very much alive just now," said he. "Too much alive, In fact." Finally Mr. Tonrey was turned down by the board's appointing the judges from the committee's list. Then Pete Gilligan had a good deal to say. lIe had antis and Heinze men whom he wanted on as judges. Tie knew where there were good men. So did Walsh, but the commissioners went on with their, ap pointments, in the main disregarding the instructions of the representatives. It Is Worth Having. In most of the precincts five judges were appointed, but in the smaller ones only three. A few precincts were consolidated with others, as the voting population did not justify the appointment of one set in each. In some of the large precincts, hige No. a21, where I,ooo votes are counted, the re muneration to the judges amounts to con siderable. The law allows $3 a day and 5 cents for every zoo votes counted. This means $53 for the judge, but he takes sometimes the three days to count the votes, so his share of the winnings is $6o, County Clerk Weston is preparing ap pointments for the judges this afternoon and mailing them as fast as possible, so as to be in time for the election, which is now only 24 days away. Following are the appointees: Precinct I-Populist, ld Matthews, an ti-trust, Wilter Pace; labor, J. C. Kelly; democrat, Frank Shovlin; republican, James Waters. Precinct a-Populist, James Gilmore; zcpublican, John Marsland; anti-trust, John Regant; labor, B. Arrogoni; democrat, '1 hos. Collins.

MASKED BURGLARS DEAL OUT CARNAGE PROMINENT KENTUCKIAN SHOT TO DEATH BY DESPERADOES WHO INVADE HIS HOME. [BI ASSOCIATED PRE.s,] Lexington, Ky., Oct. II.-A. B. Chinn, of the firm of Chinn & Todd, dry-goods merchants in this city, one of the most prominent business men and ex-confeder ate soldiers in Kentucky, was shot to death by two masked burglars at an early hour today in his bedroom at his home in this city. His son, Asa, who heard the noise, rushed to his father's rescue, and opened fire on the burglars through a closed door with a rifle. The burglars returned the fire and Asa is probably mor tally wounded. Citizens and police are searching for the murderers, but no clew has yet been found. DO N'T KNOW HIM OUTSIDE OF BUTTE.

LLOYD, Who Was Today Appointed United States Marshal for Montana bv President Rooseve It. News was received in Butte this morn ing that Col. C. F. Lloyd of this city was appointed United States marshal for the district of Montana, vice Joseph F. Woolman, whose term has expired. Former Senator T. II. Carter was the first to hear the news in Montana. A dispatch from Attorney General Knox was forwarded to him to St. Louis and re peated to Helena. Colonel Lloyd's appointment has been expected for some time, but all the same the news was received by his many friends with great joy and all admit that he is the man for the place. It is not known just when Colonel Lloyd will take charge of the office or whom he will appoint as deputies, but it is prob able that he will take charge of the office as soon as the bonds can be filed anmº the necessary preliminaries arranged. This may be done in io days. Mr. Woolman was not a candidate for reappointment and indorsed the appoint iment of Colonel Lloyd. C. F. Lloyd was born in Guttenburg, Sweden, in the year 1851 and came to TRUDGIAN SAYS HE IS THE VERY MAN Mark Kelly, one of the suspects in the city jail, charged with having held up and robbed Alonzo Trudgian last Tuesday night, at the corner of Colorado and Mer cury streets, was positively identified as one of the highwaymen this afternoon bt Trudgian. "I would know that man's voice any where on earth," said Trudgian, after talk ing a few minutes with the prisoner. "1 shall never forget the way he spoke to me from behind. That voice made a lastink impression. I knew the proper man was behind the bars as soon as I heard him speak." Both Kelly and Frank Butler, the other suspects, were sent to the county jail this afternoon to await trial for highway rob bery. this country when he was only six nlotha of age, settling first in Wisconsin and shortly after removing to Iowa. lie was appointed to the United States nmilitary academy from Iowa from which institution he graduated in the year 18;4. Ilis first military service was as seconr lieutenant of the Fourteenth U. S. in fantry. For some years he was stationed at Fort Douglass, near Salt Lake, at which place he was married. lIe was with (;Cneral Crook in his memorable campaign against Sitting Bull in 1876 and later on was stationed at Fort Robinson, Neb. lie was mustered out of the regular army June 1o, 1883, and shortly after took up his residence in this city where he has been an honored and much respected citizen ever since. W\hen the Spanish-American war broke olit Colonel Lloyd was made lieutenant colonel of the Third U. S. volunteer cav alry, one of the rough rider regiments. lie was appointed to the command on May 14 and was mustered out September to of the same year. BAD MEN BEATEN BY THEIR MATES F. A. Gilmore, J. F. Green and Frank Butler, three prisoners at the city jail, were charged with assault and battery by Chief of Police Reynolds this after noon, and when they shall have served their time they will be held to answer to the new charge. Chief Reynolds was attracted by noises and cries in the city jail and running down stairs, he found the three men above named beating Tom McGil and W. S. Wil martih, the newspaper men who were in jail to sober up. Before the chief could interfere the newspapers men had been terribly beaten about the body and head and it is said Wilmarth is seriously hurr JUDGE HARNEY IS TOO ILL TO COME COURT ADJOIIRNID ON ACCOUNT or INDISPOSITION OF THE JURIST.

HAYES REFUSED TO FILE NOMINATION IT IS CLEAR THAT M'CLERNAN CAN NOT DEPOSIT PAPERS WITH THE STATE'S SECRETARY. Dispatches from Ielena relative to the filing of the certificate of nominatioin of Judge McClernan by the secretary of state made it quite clear that Mr. Ilayes refuses to file the paper. As to whether it is necessary for the nomination to lie filed with the secretary of state at all is a question that lawyers differ upon. The only law on the subject is contained in Section 1312 of the Civil Code, which provides as follows: "Certificates of nominaltion of candi dates for office to le filed by the electors of the entire state, or of any division or district greater than a county, must be filed with the secretary of state. Certifi cates of nomination for county, township and precinct officers must be filed with the clerks of the respective counties wherein the officers are to be elected." It has always been the custom to file the nominations of the district judges with the secretary of state, whether the district comprised one or more counties, but many lawyers maintain that where the district is in one county it is only neces sary to file with the county clerk.

SLUSH SLINGERS FULL OF BOOZE MIX IT UP IN A SALOON AND LAND IN JAIL-HEINZE MEN, OF COURSE, Toni McG;ill and W. S. Wilnarth, two of liinize's cartoonists oni the staff of l;augustus' press, ran amuck last night in the saloon of A. I.. Green. The menti were evidently imbibed with the spirit of licinze's local sheet as well as with a lot of cheap whisky. They wandered into Green's saloon and after ordering several drinks and a box of cigars, refused to pay for them. A rough house resulted and the slush-slingers wound up in the city jail. P. A. O'Farrel, editor of the sheet for which McGill and Wilmarth work, went to the jail to bail out his artists, but find ing them in a drunken condition he de cided to leave them behind the bars to sober up. They spent part of a pleasant night in jail, and this morning forfeited bail, failing to appear to answer the charge against them.
