BOYD CASE CONTINUED AGAIN Missing Witness, Badly Wanted by the Defense, Said to Be Able to Ex onerate Boyd-..McDonald, It Is Alleged, Had Entire Charge of the Bullion and Never Missed Any of It. Another continuance has been granted In the case of John Boyd, charged with having taken bullion from the plant of the Granite Ri-Metallic Consolidated Min ing company. This action was taken by judge McClernan the morning at the request of the defendant. It is said that a change of venue will be asked. The aflidavit of Boyd, filed in support of the request for a continuance, asserts that one of the most important witnesse-s for the defense cannot be found just now. It is claimed that without this witness the defense cannot prove sonic of the most vital points in favor of Boyd. Alex J. McDonald is the missing man. It is asserted in the affidavit that he is now in l'ark City, Utah, but can be on hand at the next term of court, if the case is taken up at that time. Without McDonald the defense says it has no other means of showing some very iam piortanmt points. Says McDonald Was in Charge. lloyd's affidavit declares that Mcl)on ald was in charge of the bullion all of the time he was employed by the com pany and at the time the alleged theft took place. It goes on to show that Boyd was never in a position to get near WE WILL TRY IT "ON THE DON" Series of Experiments of the Effect of Food, Adulterants and Poisons Began by Experts Upon the Bodies of Volunteers --It May Be Learned What Is Good and What Is Not. C(JRRI'SI'ONFIINCE OF INTLR MOUNTAIN. Washington, Dec. 13.-The government has begun a series of experiments in hinman beings to test the effects of food. The r:ading public has learned that practically all commercial foods are more or less doctored for purposes of adultera tionu or preservation. Chemists and hygie nii~ts throughout the world have the most varying opinions as to the effects of these materials upon the digestion and general health of the consumer. Investigations already made have been entirely partisan. So there is no scientific information, one way or the other. 1)r. Wiley. as chief of the bureau of chemistry, department of agriculture, has analyzed practically every food common to commerce. lie has prepared a long list of substances used as preservatives, color ing matter, leavening agents and those added to pure food for any purpose. The impoltant ones are salicylic acid, borax, boracic acid, sulphites and sulphuric acid, benzoits and benzoic acid, saccharina, for maldehyde, alcohol, salt, pyroligneous acid-the sum products of the burning of woods, as contained in wood smoke, nitrate of potash, chlorine, formic acid and the fluorides. Among the coloring agents are vegetable colors such as annatto, and especially the coal tar colors used in but ter, cream, sausage and preserved meats; also cocin used to dye vegetables and fruit red. Along the leavening agents used by bakers are bicarbonate of soda, phosphoric acid and cream of tartar. Falling back upon the philosophy of the old adage, "The proof of the pudding is in the eating," or. Wiley lately decided to feed these substances to men, to afterward subject these same men to chemically pure food alone, and then to compare results. During the past few weeks he has been busily engaged in converting the basement floor of the bureau of chemistry into as complete a boarding house as any thrifty widow ever kept. He applied to the civil service commis sion for a cook and waiter, and that em ployment agency supplied two colored gen tlemen, whose respective duties are to prepare the doctored food in true Waldorf Astoria style and serve it without the least betrayal of the secret constituents which lie hidden under its seductive triffles and sauces. The doctor's office was stacked with bales of linen and canton flannel, which he told the inquisitive visitors were to be used as mortuary wrappings for his victims. He issued a call for volunteers, and soon found himself overwhelmed by a correspondence with individuals the city o'er, who hungered for the free viands of his table. Of these score of applicants he finally selected two dozen. The mapority are employes of his bureau; all are con nected with the department of agriculture and are students of science. Women and married men were barred, the former because the conditions of en listment were such as to entail them embarrassment; the latter because the doc tor deemed it unsafe to attempt to divorce them from the boards of their better halves, fearing that sentimental reasons might tempt them to kick over the traces. Each of the accepted volunteers had to sign this pledge: "We, the undersigned, hereby agree to take our meals for a period of at least six months, at the table to be prepared in the Bureau of Chemistry, Department of Agri culture, for the purpose of ascertaining the effects of certain preserving substances, commonly used in foods, upon digestion. We agree to follow the rules and regula tions prescribed for this experimental study, to make the observations required, and, during the period in which the study is continued, will promise to take no food of any description, except that which is provided at the table mentioned. It is agreed that the time in which we are un der observation shall not occupy more than half of the whole time, and that during the remainder of the time we are permitted to take our meals at another table to be pro vided by the Bureau of Chemistry, at which ordinary foods in ordinary quanti ties will be served." On Saturday last six of the 24 signers of this. pledge entered upon their six months of free board. Dr. Wiley called them together and stated the rules which they were pledged to respect. Total ab stinence from alcohol Is demanded by one of these rules. Tobacco is not tabooed, but must not be indulged in more freely than .ordinarily, while eating between meals is strictly out. of order. The young men reported at 8 o'clock and were escorted first to the "stripping room." Here each in turn divested him self of his entire apparel and stood upon very delicate weighing scales. "I will weigh them every morning before break the bullion and that McDonald never missed any of the gold. It is asserted in the afidavit that Mc Donald had charge of the keys and that they were always kept in a certain place. An order was made, however, that the keys must be turned over to one of the two men in authority at the plant, and McDonald always gave them the keys when he ended his day's work. According to Boyd's sworn statement he can prove by McDonald that he never had the keys, and that no gold was taken. McDonald is said to know positively that there was no shortage of bullion at the time it is charged that a theft was com mitted. McDonald always placed a private seal on the vault, asserts the defeidant, and at no time was this mark disturbedl a certain indication that the door ha- not been opened. The ease against Boyd has been one of the most expensive in the history of Silver Bow county. As preliminary to the present effort to try the case a large nutber of witnesses were brought from Philipsburg. They were all returned without having an opportunity to go on the stand. An effort was made to find McDonald. The sheriff was unable to locate him and serve the nttachment that was issued. fast, when they are emptiest," said the doctor. After donning their clothes they were ushered to the dining room, a cheer ful southwest apartment with four large windows. The six young men took their places at one of the boards-that known as the "hygenic table." Their first six to ten days hlre will be known as their "fore period." During this they will be fed analyzed food, containing none of the adulterants or preservatives under investi gation, and Dr. Wiley will ascertain just how much of this food will be necessary to preserve their natural bodily weight in tact. After this will commence the "obser vation period," lasting from six to Io days more. They will be fed exactly the quantity of food discovered to maintain their weight, but to this will be added one of the substances under investigation. The doctor will know exactly what quantity had been added. He will ascertain the effect of this substance upon completeness of digestion and assimilation by collection and analysis of all excreta. He will also determine what has become of the added substances, in what way and in what quantities it has been elimirtted from the body. The "after period" will then be com menced and will continue durlng the next six to ten days. During this the same quantities of food will be continued, but the substances under investigation will be omitted. This period will restore the nor mal functions in case they shall have been disturbed. The "after period" having been passed, the boarders will be removed to the second table in the room, and six more young men will take their places at the "hygenic ta ble." At the second table the six veteran boarders will be fed for a period of from 18 to 30o days the very best food which the market will afford, without any provision whatsoever. Meanwhile the six newcomers at the hygienic table will be repeating their ordeal, if such it may be termed. Thus 1a young men will be kept going at once after the work shall have had a complete start. To secure results, as valuable as possible, the experiments will be repeated many times. By taking a number of sub jects Dr. Wiley will eliminate individual idiosyncracy and accident, obtaining a mean result more valuable than could be obtained from any one person alone. Each of the adulterants or preservatives will command the doctor's attention for from' four to six months, some for a longer and others for a shorter time, perhaps. "Disturbances of digestion lasting for two or three days will probably result, but nothing of a serious character," said the doctor, speaking of the observation period. "But in no case will it be the intention to push experiments so far as to make them prejudicial to health." The menagerie is one interesting feature of the boarding house. Here Dr. Wiley will "try it on the dog" in the truly literal sense o fthe word. While the boarders are undergoing the ordeal of the "Qbser vation period" a cage full of dogs and guinea pigs will be fed with the same sub stance under observation. In this menag erie the doctor says he will push the ex periments far beyond what he could do with human beings. He will feed his dogs and guinea pigs increasing doses of the adulterants and preservatives until he pro duces on each a pathological condition. Then the animals will be choloformed and the condition carefully studied. But none of these materials with which commer MORRIS & CO'S PALACEFTS Special Wednesday With every 5oc purchase we will give away to our customers a 25c box of fine assorted candy.
