THE BUTTE INTER MOUNTAIN
VOL. XXII. No. 208. BUTTE, MONTANA, MONDAY, JANUARY 26, 1903. PRICE FIVE CENTS AUG. WORKING FOR HARNEY Frederickus Augustus Is Doing His Best to Help Edwardus W. Out. LATTER WILL APPEAR To Be Given a Chance to Plead His Own Case Be fore Committee. EDWARD AND PATRICK 'Tis Said O'Farrell Hound ed Harney Into Shores Proceeding. P IRCIAL TO TIlE INTER MOUNTAIW. Helena, Jan. a6.--Judge Harney will appear before the judiciary committee in his own defense and attempt to disprove the allegations upon which the impeach ment charges are based. This is a result of the Indefatigable work of his friends. They appealed and beseeched the members of the committee to give the judge an opportunity to be beard, and cited as precedents impeach ment cases which had been before the national congress. As a matter of fairness to the accused man it was agreed tnat he should first be given a chance to disprove the allegations, although at first it was intended that the preliminary investigation should be in the nature of a grand jury inquiry, ex-parte. Harney, Heinze and all his workers met at the Grandon early this morning and decided to follow out the campaign agreed upon at last night's conference. Every member of the legislature, who could be found, was introduced to the judge. To each he told his defense and begged an acquittal. HEINZE IS HARD AT WORK FOR JUDGE HARNEY Heinzc himself worked unceasingly with the members. He argued that the Im peachment proceedings were the result of a factional fight only and urged those who would listen to him that the republicans should not stand by the charges. Carlos Warfield, W. C. Jones and J. M. Kennedy were constantly in conversation with members, while Forbes Buchanan, who claims to hold the labor vote solid, was busy plying the Heinse arguments. For a while Harney sat in an alcove in close conversation with Clerk Helmer dinger, stopping every few moments to greet a member as he was introduced by Heinze. Occasionally the head of the United Copper company would interrupt his con versation long enough to whisper instruc tions to Jones or Warfield, who would immediately start after another member and engage him in conversation, always moving gradually toward Harney, who would be presented when the talk reached the proper stage. The whole day, until the convening of the house at a o'clock, was put in by the Heinze people In this way, and then the scene was shifted to the legislative halls. HARNEY BEARS UP WELL UNDER CIRCUMSTANCES Under the trying circumstances Harney bears up better than his friends expected. Me appeared this morning bright and hopeful for a vindication. When asked concerning the impeachment charges, he declared that a case had not been made out against him, and that the allegations could not be supported by the evidence. As to resigning he explains that he was a democrat, and such a course would be unprecedented. To some close friends he declared that his present troubles were attributable to P. A. O'Farrell, who, he asserts, has pursued him almost to the point of persecution. He would not have made his famous campaign affidavit had it not been for O'Farrell, and he claims that the Reveille editor importuned him until he was almost crazy, and to protect him self from further annoyances and threats of what would happen if he did not, he was compelled to put his signature to an affidavit which had been prepared by others for the purpose. Harney claims that O'Farrcll also forced him into making the accusations against Shores and Stivers upon which disbarment proceedings were based, a course he now sincerely regrets. INDIANS ARE NOT CHEATED Nothing in Report That Their Cattle Are Dying Off. SPECIAL TOO ITE INTEP. MOUNTAIN. Great Falls, Jan. a6.-The report that is being circulated to the effect that under the management of Indian Agent J. H.
