When Heinze Has Finished
His Bozeman Speech, No
body Is Left to Dismiss.
Gallatin County Folk Fall to See Just
What Helnze's Private Troubles Have
to Do With Them or in What Manner
Butte Politics Can Be Worth a Tour
of the State-And Therefore Faugust
Gets a Very Cold Reception Indeed.
Bozeman, Oct. 18.-Westward the stars
of Heinze's vaudeville take their way. To
the blare of a hired band, with gaudy ban
ners and theatrical display, F. Augustus
and company arrived in this city at 6
o'clock last evening from the East.
They walked from the depot, where not
a soul, attracted even by curiosity, met
them. In the party were W. C. Jones, Maj.
Thomas Burke, "Cissy" Loftus and four
other music hall singers.
On the morning train an advance agent
had arrived and ulstrnuted trashy litera
ture and pictures of Mr. Ileinze, of which
an immense package had arrived from
Of all the remarkable freak shows that
have ever amused the residents of Gallatin
valley this was certainly the most peculiar.
What political significance it may have is
past the comprehension of the people of
Bozeman; but for a howling hippodrome it
takes the honors easily.
It Was His Moscow.
This city has once been a Moscow for
the "Napoleon of Butte," but with colossal
effrontery he returned, an adventurer with
out a party or an issue that concerns the
people of this section, with absolutely no
following and no legitimate purpose. His
arrival would have been insulting if it were
not so utterly ridiculous.
There may be places on the map of Mon
tana where politics that savors of the itin
erant fakir, with opera bouffe variations
is acceptable, but not Bozeman. Whatever
glimmering opinion of the intelligence or
judgment of Mr. Heinze may have been
held by the people of Gallatin county was
dispelled with his unrequested visit.
Not all the glow and glitter of his sump
tuous private car nor the harmony of his
paid musicians, his wail of persecution and
his convulustic utterances could leave
any other impression on those who saw and
heard him here, but that his is the queerest
circus that ever came to town.
Long before 8 o'clock, when the curtain
was announced to go up, the opera house
was packed. Much the greater number
were ladies and children, but the gallery
was filled with men and boys who came to
laugh, and during the entertainment many
dropped in to see the main attraction, to
see the man of "destiny."
It Was Really Dramatic.
In the middle of Mr. Heinze's epeech
there was an incident that almost caused a
panic. A roughly dressed man started
down the aisle with his hand clasped to his
side from which the blood was streaming
copiously. Major McKeown, who is night
chief of police, pulled the wounded man
back and advancing to the stage asked the
chairman to tell the sheriff, if he was in the
audience, that he was wanted. Instantly
many rose from their seats and rushed for
the door. The man who had been stabbed
in a fight was taken to the county attor
ney's office, where his wound was dressed
and the disturbance subsided.
W. R. C. Stewart was induced to open
the ball, and as no other Bozeman resident
could he found to go on the stage, J. C.
McCarthy of Chestnut was mustered into
The "Butte City Quartet" was introduced
and sang a ragged parody on the "Wearing
of the Green." Without an encore it re
turned to sing another, with no verses of
the same air or meter.
As Indeed He Is.
"Without much preface the speaker
launched into a long dissertation on politi
cal economy, directing his fire at trusts and
corporations. When he had belabored them
for half an hour he turned his attention to
Senator Clark. He sketched the history of
Mr. Clark's political career and his share
in it.
With a showman's bow he submitted sev
eral clippings from speeches made by Sen
ator Clark and drew comparisons with
mock tragedy. He recounted many inter
esting experiences of his own political
manipulations for Mr. Clark, whom he
characterized as an ingrate to himself and
a menace to society. For an hour he
rambled on in a voice that showed he has
been using it violently. His argument
seemed to be mainly that if Clark and the
Standard Oil company were not immedi
ately annihilated the whole world, and
particularly Mr. Heinze's share of it,
would cease to move.
It Began to Be a Bore.
Disappointment grew on the faces of
the audience which had come to be amused
and to see the young man speak his piece.
The piece was painful, the utterance of it
depressing. The audience grew very tired.
For almost an hour he was accorded a
courteous attention. Then people began to
leave the hall.
They didn't want a one-man show and
Butte politics and Mr. Heinze's personal
grievances were not of interest.
Some few in the gallery shouted for the
quartet and several young people who left
In a body cast more gloom on the de
pressing spectacle.
When Mr. Heinze finished more than

Charged That the Cartoons Published
Are Obscene, Lewd and Indecent and
Unfit to Be Placed Upon the Court
Records of the United States Com
missioner-Men Now Out on Bonds.
A. W. Brouse, P. A. O'Farrell, R. A.
Pelky, T. O. McGill and John Doe Wil
marth were arraigned before United States
Commissioer Naughton after having been
arrested on complaint of United States
Postofllce Inspector E. D. Beatty, for hav
ing used the mails for circulating an ob
scene picture. The men were all releasea
on bonds of $2so each, which were fur
nished by John H. MacGinniss and Arthur
P. Heinze. Commissioner Naughton set
the hearing for next Wednesday morning
at to o'clock.
This affair is the culmination of a vile
attack that was made on United States
Senator Clark by a cartoon that appeared
in the Reveille on October 4. The Im
plication of the picture was one of moral
perversion, and so vile was it that the
shame is that it was ever permitted to
appear. It is said since its appearance
Mr. Heinzc, under whose patronage the
paper is issued, has made various attempts
to shirk the responsibility for the slander
ous drawing.
But the matter came under the eye of
I'ostonice Inspector Hleatty, who is said
to have been instructed to keep a close
look out on the character of the illustra
tions circulated" in Butte by certain vili
fiers. The picture in question is unmis
takable,and as the paper is given a wide
free distribution, and laid on every door
step in Blutte and surroundings, it is cer
tain to have gotten into the hands of
women and children, wshen in fact it was
enough to make the most hardened men
Warrants of Arrest.
E. D. Beatty swore out the complaint
against the charged men yesterday, and
Commissioner Naughton issued warrants
for their arrest late last night. These war
rants were placed in the hands of Deputy
United States Marshal Meiklejohn this
morning and it was is o'clock when he
brought the five men into the office of the
marshal. They were arraigned and Judge
McHatton entered an appearance for them.
John MacGinuiss, who appeared a little
later, wanted to know who was in need
of bail.
The complaint made by Inspector Beatty
reads as follows:
"Before me, W. J. Naughton, a UT'lited
States commissioner for the district of
Montana, personally appeared this day E.
D. Beptty, who being first duly sworn, de
poses and says, that on or about the 6th
day of October, A. D. 1902o, at Butte,
Silver Bow county, Montana, in said dis
trict ,that A. W. Brouse, P.A. O'Farrell, R.
A. Pelky, T. O. McGill and John Doe Wil
marth, late of the county of Silver Bow,
in violation of Section 3893 of the Revised
Statutes of the United States, did know
ingly, willfully and unlawfully deposit
and cause to be deposited in the postoflice
of the said United States, there situate,
for mailing and delivery certain printed
newspapers, to-wit, about 8o00 printed
newspapers, then and there addressed to
divers persons respectively, and each of
said newspapers then and there containing,
among other things, a certain picture, car
toon, print and puhblication, under a cer
tain printed heading, to-wit: "I am the
Leader of Democracy," which said car
toon, pictdre, print and publication was
an obscene, lewd, lascivious and indecent
picture, cartoon, print and publication, as
they, the said A. W. Brouse, P. A. O'Farrell,
R. A. Pelky, T. O. McGill and John Doe
Wilmarth then and there well knew which
said picture, cartoon, print and publication
is so obscene, lewd, lascivious and in
decent that the same would be offensive
to the court here and improper to be
placed upon the records thereof, wherefore
affiant does not set forth the same herein,

Atlanta, Ga., Oct. i8.-Atlanta officers
are positive that "George Burrus," the
United States army soldier arrested at
Fort McPherson, is George Taylor, wanted
in Sullivan, Mo., for the murder of the
Meeks family in 1894. The man enlisted
from Butte, Montana, but now admits that
he came from Sullivan county, Mo. The
man had letters and pictures and other
documents that indicate he is Taylor. He
is said to have confessed his crime to
fellow soldiers, who betrayed his confi
The murder of the Meeks family, for
which William and George 'laylor were
convicted and sentenced to be hanged, was
committed on George Taylor's farm in Sul
livan, Mo., on the night of May to, 1894.
The crime was committed when Gus Meeks
and his family were leaving the country,
$800 and a team having been given him
for that purpose by the Taylor brothers to
secure themselves from prosecution on
various criminal charges, of which he was
cognizant. The Taylor brothers escaped,
but William was recaptured and hanged.

Inquiry at St. James hospital this
;fternoon revealedr the facTt that the con
dition of Dr. II. A. Cayley is practically
unchanged today. The improvemnent noted
yesterday continued during the night, and
as the result of it, the doctor has spent
a comparatively good day. Should his
condition continue to improve he will
probably be operated on next Monday,
as it is important that the bullet be ex
tracted as soon as possible. It is not Im
probable that it is dislodged by this time]
The police have not yet been able to
capture Madam I.a Bonta. It is a case
of "cherchez la femme," and they are ex
erting every means in their power. The
woman has been traced as far as Seattle,
and it is believed that she may be located
there, unless she has crossed over to
Vancouver, B. C., as some believe.
However, the Seattle police are scour
ing the town for the woman, and the local
department feels certain that it is only
a question of time until she will be taken.
Deputy Sheriff McGuigan is in readiness
to leave for the woman at once. It is
understood that she has been traveling
under the name of her first husband,
Lockwood. Conductor John Strain, who
was in charge of the westbound train on
the Great Northern, has identified the
woman as one who was aboard his train
out of llavre.
Judge Boyle Dismisses C. Trapp on His'
Promise to Not Offend Again,
The case against C. Trapp, charged':
with violating the ordinance with regard
to tacking up signs on telephone poles,
was dismissed this morning before Judge
Boyle on motion of Deputy County At-.
torney Hollinger.
Trapp has promised that he will take
down all the signs he had his men put
tip and says that hereafter he will apply
to the council if he desires to decorate
the telephone poles of the city.
Miss Bridget Sullivan Becomes Heir to
Small Estate in Ireland.
Word was received here to the effect
that Miss Bridget Sullivan of Butte Is
heiress to -a small estate at Castletown,
Ireland. Miss Sullivan is living with the
family of J. H. Curtis, No. 334 South
Washington, and is well known in Butte,
where she has many friends to congra
tulate her on the good fortune announced.
The estate was left to Miss Sullivan
by her grandfather, who until his death
lived in county Cork and is valued at
something like $1,ooo.

death at I o'clock this morning. It was at
first believed that he intended suicide, but
hip physicians, Doctors J. R. E. Sievers and
A; W. Corner, are of the opinion that he
was only making an effort to allay his ner

think 1W chronic alcoholism was the
cause of death and that the( mnorphine only
had N contributory ellfect.
Mahan had been drinkimng hard for more
than a month and his friends warned him
to try and be more moderate in the use of
liquor, but he paid little attention to them
until Tlhursday night when he commnenced
to feel the terrible effects of his plotracted
