THE BUTTE IN.TER MOUNTA.IN
VOL XXII NO. 205 WEATHER FORECAST. BUTTE, MONTANA, THURSDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 13, 1902. THURSDAY FAIR. PRICE FIVE CENTS HEADS FRENCH TALE AND PONDiERS ON HUNTING TRIP On a Special Speeding 70 Miles an Hour Roosevelt to Mississippi Wilds. RIE IS READY TO DO HIS VERY WORST TO TMIEBEAR tomething of the Sort of Outfit the President is Carrying and How He Is Likely to Look When He Gets in the Field, Together With an Anecdote of a Famous Gunstock Which Is Now in the Armory He Has With Him. ir s ns..uo l. iS n I ,r ..], Memphis, Nov. 1.3.-The presidential train arrived here at (9:.o 'this miorning. For some distance this mornling it was run at a speed of over 70 miles an houilr to make up lost time. The president was anxious to reach the hunti:g camp early enough today to get into the woods this evening and the schedule of the train s.as hastened to meet his desire. The train is now due to reach Smnedes, Miss., at .! o'clock. The hunting camp is so miles distant frcnm there and the re mainder of the journey will he made on horseback. The president 'has with himt the hunt ing outfit used by him for imany years in his thunting trips after big game in the neighborhood of -his ranch on the Little Missouri in Dakota, and in the mountains of Idaho, Montana and Colorado. It in cludes a fringed buckskin, sucht as was worn by the old wilderness hunter, and his favorite W\inchester 40-9o. W\itth this weapon he has killed many of his huntlting trophies. It bears the inter esting scars of one of 'his battles with a cougar or mountain lion in Colorado. In closing with a wounded cat the president thrust the stock into }her mlot:l4h. It shows the teeth marks of the enraged animal and the place where a small piece was literally b4tten 'away. Hlis cartridge belt has a tunting knife a1ttached. He Is Ready for Bear. Most of the bullets are soft nosed, but a few of them are st'eel jacketed for pene trating power in case the president should get a chance for a long shot. While thus prepared for wilderness conditions it is not probable that the presi dent will don Iis buckskin suit unless he finds that genuine rcc.nditions prevail. On the journey down there the president has spent a considerable portion of this time reading, one of the books in which he is particu'a.rly interested being "The No snadic Life." by M. Jessured, the new Frcnch ambassador twho is to succeed M. Cambon. It is a history of the trouba dours and crusaders of the middle ages and the presidcnt is reading it in the original French. Before the train left Memphis the private ear of President Fish of the Illi nois Central was attached. NEW MINES AT BALD BUTTE Eastern Syndicate Ready to Commence Operations for the Winter. Charles A. Couch, the well-known min ing expert of Boston, is of the opinion that there are sonce big mines in the vicinity of Bald Butte in Lewis and Clarke county, besides' the celebrated Bald Butte mine. He has secured several claims in that district for an eastern syndicate and is now preparing for the winter's work. It is preposed to sink two shafts to a depth of 200 feet and while the deepest shaft is yet only 35 feet in depth the showing is a good one. The- company have secured a millsite near the head of the American gulch aboue a mile and one-half away from the mine and when the development justifies it it is the intention of the company to erect a mill. Will Entertain White. [BY AsSocrATltIu P.Rss.] Berlin, Nov. 13.-The Italian amhassa dor, Count Lanza di Busca, will give a dinner Saturday to Ambassador White and the Marquis de Noalles, the French am bassador, who is also retiring. RETURNING BOARD STILL AT SEA A. F. OF L. OPEN ANNUAL MEETING 'I wish that the whole business was over," said Johnny Doran, deputy clerk at the courthouse this morning, while talking about the canvass of the election returns. "I did think that I knew something about the election laws of Montana, but I have finally come to the conclusion that I was mistaken." It seems that the judges in the different precincts have failed to furnish complete returns, and the commissioners will not canvass the returns until the complete list is furnished them. There are some seven or eight precincts which have sent in re turns that are worthless so far as finding out who was voted for is concerned, and that is the only object of having returns. Messengers have been sent to these pre cincts for the purpose of getting the judges to give the correct vote. Just how this can be done is a matter of conjecture, as, aside from any law that may govern the matter, it would seem to be a danger ous proceeding to allow any election board to reopen the ballot box and monkey with the returns. As a matter of fact, there is no law governing such a proceeding, as it Is contemplated that the judges of election will do their duty and send in the informa tion required. The only law that seems to touch directly upon this question is Section 1432, which says: "If the returns from any precinct bave not been received by the county clerk UNCLE SAM WILL SEE AFTER THIS MOVEMENTS TAKEN TO SUPPRESS LADRONISM, WHICH IS NUISANCE IN OUR PHILIPPINES. [BY ASSOCIATED PRESS.) Manila, Nov. t3.-The United States commission has passed, an act to assist the suppression of Ladronism. It makes high way robbery committed by three or more persons a capital offense. A conviction does not require proof of the actual corn mission of the crime, the existence of a band of brigands under arms being suf ficient. Severe penalties are prescribed for those assisting Ladrones In the com mission of crimes. The commissiol hra also passed a swecping vagrancy act, drawn up so as to reach both dissolute na tives and foreigners. McGEARY JURY HAS NOT BEEN SEC JRED YET Defense and State Have Lively Time Challenging Various Veniremen Appearing, and Twelve Good and True Men Are Hard to Get-Attorney Trippet Takes a Turn at Asking the Court Why Sundry Jurymen Are Allowed to Serve and Judge Napton Is Kept Busy. Just when it seemed extremely probable that the specie! venire of ,oo names would be exhausted in the Mceieary trial, twelve men were secured and challenges for cause ended. 'lhere remained still thirty names cn the panel. with the state having five peremptory challenges to exercise and the defense ten. Notwithstanoing the rigid examination to which they were subjected, the follow ing men were considered competent jur ors by the court: Eric l.andet, llarry McManus, \V. C. Converse, John T.awler, George \\'.llace, P. S. Taney, William Dennis, Charles Wegren, F. B. (;Grr and A. Short of Anaconda, Daniel Murhy, Jr., of Mill Creek, and Joseph Jacohson of Race Track. The examination of the jur ors for the exercise of the peremptory challenges then began. It was a familiar scene that Judge Nap ton looked down on front his bench this morning when he instructed Bailiff Red mond to open court and Clerk of the Court Will Thomas began the reading of the minutes. John McGeary, the pris ATTORNEY DUFFY, Who Is Attending to the Prosecution for the County. oner who is on trial for his life, sat fac ing the judge between his attorneys, W. II. Trippet and M. i,. Wines. At his left hand sat his brother, Michael McGeary. Facing them and across the row of tables County Attorney D)uffy and his deputy, J. 1-1. Tolan, represented the state. RELATIVES OF MURDEBED, MAN AT THE HEARING Soon after the trial began Mrs. Hlolins head and W\. Evans, children of the mur dered man, came in and took their accus tomed seats facing the prisoner. A few minutes later the aged parents of the prisoner, with their other son, their daugh ter, Mrs. T. A. Maguire, and her hus band, came in and took seats in front of the rail. Deputy Sheriff Joe Stevens; in whose within seven days after any election, it is his duty forthwith to send a messenger to the judges for the missing returns, who must procure such returns from the judges, or any of them, and return the same to the county clerk." The law does not provide, however, how the judges are to sen the ballot box and secure the returns, and good sense would seem to dictate that after the returns are once sealed up and the election board adjourned, that the only way to open them would be by order of some court ot competent jurisdiction. If this were not so it would be a simple matter for the judge, who had the returns in his possse sion, to open them at his leisure and make MASCAGNI'S CASE MAY CAUSE COMPLICATION fBY ASSOCIA'TEI) I'RL:SS., Rome, Nov. 13.-Italy purposes to make an international matter of tlz arrest in Boston of Mascagni.

Of course it is improbhable that there is an election judge in Silver flow county who would be guilty of such an act, but should there be it would be an easy matter for hint to perhaps change tile result of the election. The law which governs the imaking of the returns is as follows: Section 1408. The judges must before they adjourn, enclose in a cover and seal up and direct to the county clerk the check list, all certificates of registration received by them, one of the lists of the persons challenged, one of the poll books, (Continued on Page Three.) the Italian government to prevent him from the vexatious treatment of which he says he has been a victim in America.
