MURDER TRIALS IN
M'CLERNAN'S HALL *MPORTANT CASES SET B,' HIS IONOR, BEFORE WHOM CAPITAL OFFENDERS WILL COME. Though the proceedings in Judge Mc Clernan's court consumed but a very shost time this morning, they were none the Iess important. In fact with a number ot persons they involved a question of lite and death and among those who att ,nded the brief session there were various ones who will soon be compelled to *tand a trial for murder in the district court of S:lvei Bow county. This was the day for settling the dates on which the murder trials will be heard and there was a sort of hushed silence about the court in view or the seriousness of the proceedings. Dan laicey, assist ant county attorney, asked leave to file an Information against Edward J. Dailey who is under arrest for the killing ot Charles A. Ray. Judge McClernan granted the request and the information was filed. Judge Lindsay, who is Daitte's attorney, waived the reading of t.he Information. It charges Dailey with having taken the life of Ray willfully and maliciously by means of stabbing him with a knife. In view of the coroner's jury failing to fix the responsibility of Dailey's guilt ycate. day, this information has caused a consi, erable amount of comment. Same Witnesses Retained. The same witnesses who appeared at the coroner's inquest have been retained by the state to give testimony in the prosecution of Dailey. Attorney Lindsay asked that his client be granted until next Monday to enter his plea and the case was continued until that time. A number of other cases tal. have been on the books for some time were set. On November i8 will be heard the troubles o. Jennie Williams and Joe Corbett. On the gpth, the case of Montana vs. Hadsell will occupy the court's attention. Harry Peters will get his hearing on the aist. The case against Cusick, who has beecn in the county jail ever since the shooting of Baggs in June, has been set for November *8. His attorney, Edward Booth, gave no tice this morning that he might ask for a continuance at that time. Judge McCler san intimated that it would require an ex tra good reason for an extension. Booth claimed that he would be there with the goods, whereupon the honorable judge said: "The reason that you believe good, might not impress the court in the same way." Good Proposition.

SUTTE SEWER PIPE & TILE CO., SHRANSý TIDY SUM TO TAKE ESTIMATE OF VOTE ;IT WILL COST THIS COUNTY SOME $30,000-JUDGES WANT IT AT EIGHT HOUR RATE. A new application of the eight-hour law camne up in the office of the county corn missioners this morning and was for a while the subject of a spirited discussion. Will judges and clerks of election be be paid for a day's work of :ight .iours, or will the word day, as it occurs !n the statutes, be interpreted to mean a lay at Is hours or of 24? That was the pertinent qu.stioln which agitated the board and which is ot more than passing interest to the 22o juu 'Cs and clerks, many of whom have been nmaK ing a week's work out of the counting of the votes in Silver Bow county. From the discussion which the qu.stlnn provoked, it was evident that most 't the judges have been working with the under standing that they were to be remunerated on an eight-hour basis. Perhaps, in th's phase of the situation may be found tWe apparently unexplainable delay in the count of the vote and the fact that many of the candidates are not yet sure whether they are afoot or horseback. As in Previous Years. Chaiyman Clark of the board was for taking the law as it has been Interl.reted in previous years and giving the judges and clerks $3 for each day and live cents extra for every vote counted. Commissioner Haggerty, on the other hand, was an ardent advocate of the ap plication of the eight-hour law, taking the stand that the remuneration was at best but a poor one and that when th oflicia d continued to count votes for 4o or So con secutive hours they were incapacitated for work of any other nature for another day or two. Commisioners Feoples, the third mem ber of the board, held the balance of power, and while he stated that he had been under the impression that the menc were working on an eight-hour basis, he preferred to follow the strict letter ot the law and the precedent established and vote with the chairman. During the discussion, which was in general conducted good naturedly, Chair man Clark stated that he did not wish to make this election cost the people of Sil ver Bow county $6o,oo0, and from a few figures which he subsequently submitted, it was found that this matter of learning the sovereign will of the people of this county is a mighty expensive undertaking. It Costs a Tidy Sum. It is estimated that the election will cost the taxpayers of Silver Bow county not less than $30,000 or enough to pay one years' salary to all the new officers elected and leave a comfortable balance to pay some of the deputies. Of the 22o clerks and judges, many will receive as much as $40 and $5o for keep ing the z5,ooo voters in suspense as to the final result of the election. In precincts where 6oo votes were cast each judge and clerk employed-seven in all-will re ceive $30 for counting votes alone and as many of them took four or five days for it, their daily remuneration will make the total $1z or $15 more. One of the many troubles which the commissioners will be confronted with will be the effort to make the judges and clerks accept their pay on a za-houi day basis, when many of them believed that they were making lead pencil marks and calling off names at a return of $3 every eight hours. DIXON SAYS IT IS NATIONAL VICTORY CONGRESSMAN-ELECT TALKS MOD ESTLY OF THE TRIBUTE PAID TO HIM BY THIS STATE. Congressman-elcct Dixon was in tihe city yesterday for a few hours meeting and greeting his many friends and ac quaintances. Mr. Dixon maintains the dignity of his new position but at the same time he is the same jovial, kind hearted, genial gentleman that he. was prior to his discovery that he was the most popular man in the state. When asked to say something for pub lication he said that at this time he could say nothing that would be of interest to anyone. "Of course I am pleased at my elec tion," said he. "The one thing that pi ases me most is the fact that I Carried my home county by more than r,ioo majority. I am also very proud of the tact that my vote in the county of Silver Bow was many hundreds more than the republican committee had any idea that it would be. "I am thankful to my many friends for their kind words and intelligent work, but I am not vain enough to believe that my vote in the state was a personal 'ribute to me. It was rather a tribute to the wis dom of the republican party in its coarse upon all public and national questions and a testimonial of confidence in President Roosevelt who has at all times shown by his actions that he was a man or the people." Mr. Dixon left for his home in Mis soula on the belated Northern Pacihc train last iight. To Establish Coaling Place. [BY ASSOCIATED PRESS.] San Francisco, Nov.

Owing to the fact that the tcstimony was conflicting the coroner's jury which met yesterday afternoon to inquire into the death of Charles Ray, returned a ver dict to the effect that Ray came to his death as the result of a knife wound in his left leg, inflicted in Butte on the even ing of November z, but that it was im possible to fix the blame for the crime. Detective Jerry Murphy testified that when he arrested Dailey he found several blood stains on his trousers and shirt. Tony Medin, a banana vender, whose knife was used to do the cutting, testified that when he helped to part the men, he didn't notice a knife in Dailey's hand. Other witnesses were Charles McDon ald and Edward Mayer. They both saw the fight, but neither saw Dailey use his knife. Drs. Allen and Hanson were offered as witnesses but Coroner Johnson held their evidence could not add light to the case. The jury then retired and returned with a verdict as above stated.

I'adley, sheriff of Beaverhead county, is authorized and empowered to employ two keepers to take charge of property of the defendant which has been attached inl this action, the expense of the keepers to be taxed as costs. From the complaint it appears that the defendant corporaton was indebted to Thomas J. Ilennetts in the sulm of $r,85o for money lent it and to R. M. Davidson for $2,400, also for money lent. Both creditors assigned their indebtedness to the bank, which has sued for a judgment for that amount. BIOURKE WANTS THAT MONEY He Will Get That $50,000 if Perse verance Counts for Anything.

BOLIVIAN REPUBLIC IN A STATE OF SIEGE NOW Government Post Placards Stating That Situation Is Serious-Peru Believed to Be Threatening. [(Y AssoncIArroD Pr':ss.I La Paz, Bolivia, Nov. Ir.-Citizens of this city were astonished Saturday even ing when government officials placed throughout the town placards which de clared the whole Bolivian republic in a state of siege, owing to the country being threatened. The decree caused intense excitement because of the unexpectcdness of the an nouncement and ignorance for the reason for the government adopting such a step. One rumor was to the effect that Bolivians had been competely defeated in Acre. An other report was that z,ooo Peruvians were on the frontier near the Madre de Dios river. The exact seriousness of the news from Acre is unknown, but the govern ment must be in possession of grave news to take such measures and to declare a state of siege, which appears unnecessary as it Is said the entire country without distinction of party or class will stand by the government.
