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

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
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
Before the train left Memphis the
private ear of President Fish of the Illi

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

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
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

suppression of Ladronism. It makes high
way robbery committed by three or more
persons a capital offense. A conviction

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

tables County Attorney D)uffy and his
deputy, J. 1-1. Tolan, represented the state.
RELATIVES OF MURDEBED,

Soon after the trial began Mrs. Hlolins
head and W\. Evans, children of the mur

minutes later the aged parents of the

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

so it would be a simple matter for the
