Suddenly Mr. \'aile asked the witness: "lDid you hear the conversation which hIas just passed between Mr. Kennedy and Mr. 'l:arrell there to your left?" "I heard them whispering," said the wit ness, antc then added hastily, "but they are not prompting me I' Further came sonic questions for the purpose of the record the answers to which put in the witness's mouth the statement that ()'Farrell was not five feet from him, Kennedy in the seat next O'Farrell and lHeinze two seats beyond. Resuming the original line of question ing the cross-examiner led the witness into telling of the arrival of the carriage at, Mrs. ltrackett's house. Judge Hlarney was not clear ill his nmind about those in cidents or about having company on the return trip down town. "1 ant not posl tive about that," said he, when pressre for exact answers, and then he added In apology, "I had been up all night." "Did these two-MacGinniss and Ken nedy-make any inquiries of you regard ing your experiences of the night?" "1I think," said the witness with a spreading smile. "that I said 'I've had a h--I of a night.' I don't rememlber the response, but tmy recollection is that Mr. Kennedy said, 'Ves, we know something about that,' and putting his hand into the carriage, shoou. hands with me." The witne:.s denied that Ihe and Mac (iinniss and Kennedy had then driven to Judge MclHatton's house, where Mac Itinniss had alighted. DOES NOT KNOW MRS. BRACKETT'S WHEREABOUTS In reply to questions Judge Harney saidl he did not know Mrs. Brackett s wherealouts at present and declared that Ihe had had no correspondence with her since she went away from here. Mr. Breen. the friend of the court, at this juncture said that every effort had been smade to locate her, but so far these efforts had been unsuccessful. In explanation of the breaking off of the final friendly relations and the cor respondence between himself and Mrs. Brackett the witness said the cause was the fact that he believed she was en gaged to be married. "I have no exact information on the subject, however," he went on, "She never told me definitely, but I know that when she began to get all this newsp)aper notoriety she was greatly worried shout it reaching some hodv in New York. She was worried also for her little daughter and for her mother. Before she left here finally she asked me to write her mother inl regard to the whole matter and I promised to do so, but I never wrote the letter." - SHE WAS PRESENT WHEN ) HE MADE AFFIDAVIT N:ext caste questions regarding the af. fidavit Judge Harney made for the pur poses of the Minnie Healy case before Judge McHatton, on August 6-the af fidavit which he admitted two days ago was not the afiidavit he would have liked to make. It came out that Mrs. Brackett was present when he made the affidavit, but he could not remelmber definitely whether or not Mr. MacGinniss and Mr. Heinze were present. Later and before dinner he returned to Judge McHatton's office to sign the affidavit. He was quite sure that Mr, Heinze and Mr. MacGinniss were not present at the last visit. Returning to the incident of the visit of Mrs. Brackett and Judge Harney to Gregson Springs, May ra, tgoo, Mr. Vails elicited some new facts. The witness de clared he did not know how Mrs. Brack ett registered at the Gregson Springs' hotel. HIe said he did not think she reg istered as Mrs. C, J. Rinehart, as it is charged. He denied that during the eve ning he was in her room with her and there ordered drinks which were brought to thein and served by the night clerk. He said the only drink he had that day was just before retiring for the night, when hf had a glass of Ieer with Con Hayeq. the proprietor. "I was on crutches at that time and was very cautious about drinking," said the witness. M'CL'ERNAN ADJOURNS CASE UNTIL TUESDAY Judge iHarney remembered. when ques tioned, that he and Mrs. Brackett had driven out from (;regson during their stay there and had gone on up a sidehill to get the benefit of the view. He could not remember, however, that on the re turn he had been met by a boy on a bicycle who had beent sent by Con Hayes to say that he-the witness-was wanted at the hotel. He remembered that on his return to the hotel he had met Detective Murphy of Butte and that he had left on the train that evening, but lie could inot renemlber whether or not Mr. Murphy had assisted him to get on the train. Mr. \'aile indicate, that he at this time was to change his line of inquiries and take up another subject. "You will have an opportunity to take it up next Tuesday," said Judge McClernan, for the hour of the noon adjournment had ar rived. 'The judge ordered the case ad journed to to o'clock Tuesday morning, though his court adjourned only until t,) o'clock Monday morning. Late yesterday afternoon after the lit ter Mountain had gone to press, the SLIGHT ERROR MIADE IN THE BILL FOR APPROPRIATIONS SPECIAL TO TIlE INS:TER OLTAIN. Helena, Jan. 17.-Montana's eighth gen cral assembly has in two weeks succeeded in getting one bill through the house up to the printing stage and that is a nullity. Seventy-two members listened to the first and second reading of the appropriation bill carrying a little more than $3,ooo mileage. It was scrutinized by the melnm hers of the appropriation committee, pre pared by clerks, read again and referred to the printing committee before it was dis covered that the bill has no enacting clause.

Just, justicl of the peace. cross-examination .of Judge Ilarney followed the lines on which it had been carried during the day. Admitting many meetings and talks iwith Mrs. Brackett, he denied having made statcments to her which would show his atttago)nism to the Antalg-ltated Copper crompany. lie also denied having dis played a revolver during a meeting with Mr. Shores in the barroom of the Thornton hotet on July 3., moro, antI de nied having attemlted to assault Mr. Shores in the same place onl the same date with a cane. lie admitted, however. hay inq had a wordy altercation with Mr. Shores on that occasion. in the presence of Senator Cullen of Dawson county. The witness denied that on July a2, in the rootm of J. W. Waters at the Thorn ton. he said to Waters: "I'll ihe if I'll le sworn in the (;albraith matter. They claim I was influenced by Brackett. I would be a big fool to tell what I know. I ant in great trouble and i do not know how it is contmit out." DENIES THAT HE SAID HE WOULD "GIVE 'EM H-" lie denied that he had said to Mrs. Brackett on July as that lie had signed an o,rduc which would set the Amalga tmated to thiniking. he denied also that on that occasion he .tad told her that beginning of a new session as the members always look to their mileage allowance as a little spending money. Yesterday when the appropriation committee reporteu the bill to the house with favorable recotl mendation, an attempt was made ti, rail road it through so that it could be hurried to the senate for confirnation and the money become available in time for the members to have a chance to spend it over Sunday. The speaker put a halt to the rush by declaring the bill would have to be printed in regular order of business before it could .e fi._.U disposed of by the house. ABOUT BUTTE. Orton Bros.

The latter, he said, went out and left them alone and returning in a few minute. pretended that the door was locked, hut ultimately came in and ordered drinks. iThe wit ness said that he had learned about that time that Waters and his Ipurported sister were detectives. Jlu.e Harney also told of a slight altercationl he had had on the same occasion with Mrs. Brackett over the Waters, but lie denied that Mrs. Brackett had then called hint a lot of harsh names and threatened to unseat hiin fromn the bench. lie admit ted that Mrs. Brackett had remained one entire night at the Thornton. but he de clared that she had done so in the comn pany of Miss Wall, her guest from Minneapolis. lie said the only time he had ever partakenl freely of intoxicants in the presence of Mrs. brackett and the Waters was on the night they had all visited the street fair. 'his occasion, it will be remembered, was tlhe only time on which, according to Judge Harney's testimony, given earlier in the day, he had become intoxicated. and when it got that far, and not till then, was it discovered that it had no enacting clause, the most es'sential feature of all legislation.

This is easier said than done, yet it may be of some help to consider the matter. If the cause is something over which you have no control it is obvious that worrying will not help tihe matter in the least. On the other hand, if within your control you have only to act.
