THE BUTTE INtER MOUNTAIN
VOL XXII NO. o204 WEATHER FORECAST. BUTTE, MONTANA, WEDNESDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER z2, 1902. THURSDAY FAIR. PRICE FIVE CENTS GREAT NORTHERN IS STILL IN HOPE ABOUT EGAN Another Party to Be Sent Out Tomorrow to Look For the Lost Superintendent. MELTING SNOWS WILL MAKE SEARCH EASIER County Offioials Have Abandoned All Hope of Finding Egan Alive and Be lieve That the Remains Are All That Can Be Expected to Be Discovered Now Although the Railway People Ap pear to Think There Is Still Hope. Kalispell, Nov. i.--Another searching party will be sent out after Superintendci I Egan tomorrow by the Great Northern i . the belief that with the settling snow there will be a chance of finding him at the body being recovered if he is dead. The light rains which have been fallir have settled the snow, and it is hoped that some trace of the missing man may be found. The searching party which went to Pyramid peak cabin has not returned as yet, and no word has been received in tht three days that the party has been ab sent. By the county officials hope of findini Egan alive has been abandoned, and all that is expected now is that the new searching part-, to ne sent tomorrow by the railroad company will be able to findi )his dead body. There are hourly reports of the finding of the dead body, but so far none of them have been truthful. KELLEY'S CASE TOMORROW Alleged Murderer of Dr. Cayley Is to Ap pear Before Judge MoClernan. Judge McClernan's court was not in ses sion this morning. The court will convene tomorrow at which time the county attor ney's office will present the remainder of the criminal cases on the docket, and they will be set for trial. J. W. Kelley will appear before Judge McClernan at that time and enter his plea. It is probable that some time will elapse before the trial comes off. ACT THREE OF COUNT COMEDY1 Commissioners, Candidates, Representatives, Reporters and Spectators in Interesting Scene When They Again Consider What Is to Be Done About Datermi ning Just Who Was Elected. * Act III of the farce-comedy, entitled "Election Returns," opened in the office of the county commissioners at to o'clock this morning. With a few minor *xceptions the "dramatis personae" were the same as dur ing the two previous acts. Of course the villain was absent. He is a composite individual made up of a judi cious mixture of election judges and their clerks. The hero was there in the person of the candidates-elect. Chairman W. D. Clark of the board of commissioners might be considered lead ing man in the cast, with Commissioners Haggerty and Peoples a close second. Johnnie Doran played a soubrette role this morning. His acting was quite creditable, and during the closing acts in the perform ance Johnnie expects to play a much more prominent part. Attorney Kremer occupied the boards in the early part of the act, and today, for the first time, a new actor in the person of Attorney S. C. Herren made his appear ance. He did not take a very active part in the production this morning, and retired into the wings early in the game. LARGE AUDIENCE GATHERS TO WITNESS PERFORMANCE It was a few minutes ofter zo o'clock when Mr. Clark came on the stage. He found an audience that would have made John Maguire smile from ear to ear. The same policemen, the same attorneys, the same stenographers, reporters, county off cials and their successors, who have been thronging the commissioners' office for the past two days, were there on time. As the curtain went up Attorney Kremer came first to the center of the stage. "I would like to know if the county attorney has handed you his official opinion yet regarding the right of judges to break the seals of receptacles containing bal lots ?" he asked. Mr. Clark called the commissioners' clerk, Bob Kennedy, from the wings. Mr. Kennedy was attired in the costume of a scribe, in his shirt sleeves and a pleasant smile. He looked well as he advancer to the glare of the iootlights. "Go up to the county attorney's office, Bob, and get that opinion," said the chair man. There was silence deep as death foi about eleven seconds. Then Attorney Herren announced that he was represent ing one or two people and would like to know the status of the case. While Mir. Clark was still explaining the drama to Mr. Herren Mr. Mackel came in (left center). After satisfying himself that the com pany was still playing to capacity, he took a seat and his cue. He began by stating that he didn't know he had been expected to furnish an opinion, but immediately re sumed the lines he uttered with such ef feet yesterday. "The board has made an order requir ing the judges of election to furnish com TWO YEARS AGO TODAY MIARCUS DALY DIED Second Anniversary of the Demise of One of Montana's First Sons Marked by Impressive Ser vices in St. Patrick's Catholic Church, Where High Mass Is Read by Father DeSiere and Assistants-Something of Benefits Conferred Upon State by Man Whom All Loved. This is the second anniversary of the death of Marcus Daly. Two years ago today the people of Montana were startled by the tidingq from New York-sad tidings-of the passing away of the man who towered above all others in the industrial and po litical history of the state, and who, not withstanding the active, hand he took in both, was first in the hearts of the people who knew him. At the solemn high mass at St. Pat rick's church this morning the hundreds who came to pay their humble tribute to the memory of the .dead were ample evl dence that neither time nor circumstances will obliterate the name or him whose broad charity was equally ready as a miner working for a day's pay or as the first mining man in this broad land. The services at St. Patrick's church which began at 9 o'clock this morning were beautiful. A special program had been arranged by the choir. Twenty altar boys in their spotless surplices attended on the officiating priests. ,he church was thronged long before the mass began and the crowd of silent worshipers kneeling during the service made an ' impressive scene. MASS READ BY FATHER DESIERE AND ASSISTANTS The mass was read by Father De Siere, Father McGlynn acting as deacon, Father Harrington as sub-deacon and Father O'Farrell as cape-bearer. Fathe- Phelan was master of cere monies, while Father Thompson and Father Stack occupied seats In the sanc tuary. The music was in charge of Mrs. Igna tius Donnelly, Mrs. Rooney and Miss Hammond, and was beautiful and appro priate. According to the custom of the Roman Catholic church there was of course no sermon or address during the celebration of the mass, but the service was never theless an appropriate and touching testi mony to the memory of the illustrious dead. Throughout the city in general today references were made to the late Marcus Daly on this, the anniversary of his death. From every class were heard ex pressions of sorrow at his death and words of testimony to his greatness and his kindness. The story of his life and of the inex pressible sadness attached to his death plete returns," said he. They have not yet done it. Then there is nothing to do but adjourn." Mr. Mackel surprised the audience, however, when he announced that he had come to the conclusion from reading the statutes that the board could begin the canvass of the votes as long as they had material to work on. "You can take up these returns and canvass them now," said he. Not even from the crowd that gathered in the cor ridor and constituted the gallery gods was there a murmur of applause. Attorney Hatton retired to the county clerk's office via the wings just as Attorney C. F. Kelley arrived by the main entrance. Attorney C. F. Connolly took a seat at the end of the commissioners' table and Attorney Kremer took the floor. "Who has charge of these ballot boxes and canvas sacks?" asked Mr. Kremer. T:here was no reply for a moment. At torney Mackel looked at Commissioner Clark. Commissioner Clark looked back at the deputy county attorney, who looked at Deputy Johnny Doran. The soubrette promptly winked the off eye and smiled blandly at t4he county attorney. Evidently this was an important ques tion. Mackel came to the rescue. "These bal lot boxes have not yet been given over to the commissioners," said be. "Ilow ever, we are not here to pass upon thit matter." Mr. Kremer then went on to show the reason for his question. He understood that the judges had been opening some of the boxes in which were loose ballots. he wanted to know who gave them that authority and who permitted anybody to touch the ballots in direct breacih of the statutes of the state. PERTINENT QUESTION TO THE AUGUST AUTHORITIES "I understand the .oard believes it has the power to instruct the judges to open these boxes," said he. Commissioner Haggerty was next to the bat. "Mr. Chairman, have you issued any order to that elffct ?" said he to Mr. Clark. "There has been no such order given from this office," was the reply. Once more the Herculean deputy county attorney came to the rescue of the posi tion. "It is not the board's business to bother with these boxes," said he. "They are assembled as a returning board and have nothing to do 'with the ballots or boxes which are now in the next office." "I want to know the position of tihe board in this matter," said Attorney sremcor. "This is not a question so much for infommation as it is a matter of record. I want to know the position of the board in this matter and to find who authorized these people to meddle with the ballots." Attorney Mackel once more reviewed the sittiation. He said the .board had com menced the canvassing of the returns and THE LATE MARCUS DALY, The Second Anniversary of Whose Death Was Marked Today by High Mass in St. Patrick's Church. is familiar to all Mo1ntanans. Just as he had achieved fame and fortune after 35 years of toil, and when he was In a position to enjoy in fullness that suc cess for which he had fought so hard, he fell a victim to a dread disease. After making a trip to Europe at thet direction of his Ijhysicians, he returned to New York about the middle of Sep tember, 902., and was almost Immediately compelled to take to his bed at the Hlotel Netherlands, frotmi which he never again rose. The physicians had informed his relatives that he could not recover jpd that they could give assurance. of his Rfe Only from day to day. Bright's disease, found t at some of them were incom plete. They had according to the pro visions of the,law sent out messengers to the various negligent judges to reotify their mistakes, report at the office and make the returns complete. They had not received the colmplcte retutrns yerter day morning, consequently they ad journed. They had not received com plete returns this morning, consequently it was their duty to adjourn until seven adjournments had been taken, when tiheyi would commence to canvass tlte returns as far as they had them. Attorney lierren asked if it was evident to the board that the returns are as coin plete now as they will ever be or is it the intention of the commissioners to adjourn each day until the seven have expired. Mr. Mackel gave it as his official opin ion that the latter course would be the best for the board to pursue. HE REPRESENTS CERTAIN INTERESTED CANDIDATES Mr. Herren stated that he was repre senting certain interested parties and he. was anxious to find out what the probable action ot tie board would be. Attorney Mackel was about to reply when Chairman Clark rung down the curt tain and brought the act to a conclusion in the following words: "I don't know whether you gentlemen know it or not, but you are losing your own valuable time continuing this discu-. sion. I know you are losing the time of this board. Why, the thing Is as plain as the nose on a cat's face. We are In ses sion as a canvassing board. We have called on the county clerk to furnish us with complete returns of this election so that we may proceed with the count. This the county clerk has not clone. Until he furnishes us complete returns within the seven days prescribed by law, we can take no action, consequently as a canvassing board this body stands adjourned. There was no applause. Many of the spectators thought they had not receives the price of admission. They expected more tragedy. There wa absolutely no melodrama. The situation was at times humorous but the curtain came down too soon. They went away comforting them selves with the knowledge that the per formnance will resume at io o'clock tomor-' row morning. From most of the precincts in tile city and in the immediate vicinity, the omis sions in the returns have been suppTled. Numerous combinations of mistakes were possible in making the returns. None have been overlooked. Messengers have been dispatched to the outside points for the judges but this afternoon no returns have yet been re ceived from any of the following: ,Mel rose, Feeley, Divide, Silver Bow and Brown's Gulch. It is not probable that the commissie n. ers will be able to begin the countin;'be fore Friday morning at til earlist.' colmplicated with heart weakness, was the cl.ln of his death. VWhen asked if he was feeling better that morning, he requested that his family re sunmmoned, and when they gathered around he said: "Only a little while more; a little hit Ieath came peacefully. lhe was clun scious until a few minutes before he I.assed away. The body was then taken to the Daly home on Fifth avenue and the funeral was held later from St. Patrick's cathe dral. I The body lay for some time in the vault of the Mackay family.

This is punk day at police headquartetrs .nd tile city jail and Sol Levy is in hist lory. The corridors of the city hall are -odorous with punk and the casual visitor might well ask if the police olcials have taken to the burning of incense. To all questions Sol merely points down stairs to a half dozen ordinary sticks of the Chinese luck-bringer that are stuck iiito the chinks of the wall and Ibrning briskly. Now, he it known, that Sol ..evy is su lprstitious; also that things are very dull .at police headquarters antd pr.soners are scarce as hens' teeth. 'l'he son of Collfl cias believes that the burning of punk will drive away the evil spirits and bring goad luck; so does .ol. About once every two months Sol feels compelled to resort to the use of punk. And this method of increasing bIusiness geRnerally itiects with success. Once, a holtle week passed without an arrest and the jail blotter fairly itched with the de sire to have inscribed upon its face the name of so5mJe belated offender. He Is Always There. But Sol Ievy was equal to the occasion. he went down into Chinatown ald pur chased from a celestial merchant a whole dozen sticks of the sacred punk. These were placed with care in niches in the walls and the outer ends liglhted. That started the fun. For the next three days there were so maiy arrests that Sol almost'regretted his action. lie was kept busy keeping up with the horde of city prisoners that landed behind the bars. And now times are dull again. The punk is burning, however, and Judge Boyle fully expects a long list of drunks and vags at Shis police court matinee tomorrow. M r.

Victoria, B. C., Nov.

The 'Tacoma splent -3 days in reaching Yokohama, nine days longer than usual, and the Indrapura was a4 days from As toria to Yokohama in conseqluetnce of the storms. 'The Ta';coia encoutered ta gale on the 14th, nine day's out with tremln, dous seas, which swept Inboard on the port side, tunshippJing and smashing the two after lifebo;ts, the wreckage of which was thrown overboard.

The steam stfeering gear ibroke down antd it required six mien at the wheel aft. The telegraph was also disabled, the cap tain and chief officer of tile bridge signal ing the whetlhouse with the whistle. The next Imormning another sea swept over the port quarter, carrying the port quarter boat, which was driven through the captain's room. The davits were snapped like pilpestemms, the tafrail broken antd the whole deckhouse wrecked. The wheelhouse was stove in and flooded and officers and sailors lifted from their feet andl jammned against the roof. The cap tain's room lay in a mass of debris, and the bulkhead between the room anll social hall was carried away. The saloon doors were carried overboard and the whole port side was stove in and wrecked. The steamer looked like a junk shop. She rode the seas, however. Her engines acted well and the crew behaved hero ically, and but two suffered injuries, both of a minor nature.
