Ross, the colored man who is in the county jail charged with assault in the irst degree on a white woman named Mary Walsh, alias Suprenaut, was in Jus tice Harrington's court for a preliminary examination this morning. The only wit nesses examined in the case were the white woman and the colored man. At the conclusion of the hearing Judge Hiar rington took the case under advisement. 'l he testimony given by Ross, who wearsn aide whiskers nd says that he was a pros perous scavenger and had a scavenger team and wagon that ought to have made any man proud till he laid eyes on Mary and allowed her to share his cabin in the bad lands, was interesting. He declared that the trouble he had with the Walsh woman was due to an effort on his part to oust her from his cabin. According to his story he put the woman out of the cabin last fall after he discovered that she was a menace to his welfare, and she returned there just before the trouble between them. Knocked Her Down. "I hit her and knocked her down, and sie fell against a trunk. I admit that," he said; "but, after she stole Jimmy Joyce's things, I didn't want her around. She was a regular clock and lamp fend. She broke so clocks and lamps for me." When he Sot through the woman cur in and said: "I was afraid of my life." "Well, if you were afraid of your life, why didn't you stay away when I fired you last fall. I put you out and you followed Ise up." The woman tried to whisper to the judge then rising from her seat and leaning over his desk for the purpose. "Sit down," said the court. "Sit down. Sit down," and Mary reluctantly took her seat. She had a large lump on one cheek, and she chuckled and grinned in an unpleasant fashion while the colored man continued his story. "I pay the rent for that cabin where I live and I just let her come in there, be cause she didn't seem to have :ny place to go to," said be. "You took her in out of charity, I sup pose," said Deputy County Attorney Cole mesn. "Well I suppose it was charity," Ross admitted modestly. "What did you want to put her out for ?" was the next question. Drunk All the Time. "Well, she was drunk all the time, and whenever I left the place she brouglh a lot of hoboes and tramps into the place. She turned the cabin into a regular lush joint." "What did she do?" the assistant prose cutor asked. "I don't know what she did do while I was gone," the colored man replied in strenuous terms. "Well, she lived there, any way, didn't she ?" was the next query, "She wasn't going to live there any more, because I was going to fre her out," Ross relied. "She turned my house into a lush Joat and I was liable to get into trouble la time." After the hearing Judge Harrington s. tned a warrant charg the woman with ljving a disreputsble life, Mr. Coleman drawing the eompla nt. Ihe colored man and she were both taken back to the bas. tile, Mary to await prosecutin on t he charge named sad Ross to awast the Judg. atet of the court in bis case.

AMOUNT DUE GREATLY CUT DOWN RECENTLY Powers Case and How Two Authorities Do Not Agree-Justices.Do Not Know Just How They Stand, but the Books of the Treasurer Show That Plan In Force is the Way to Get the Money. The county commissioners have evident ly struck upon a successful expedient in the collection of back licenses. About a week ago they secured a list of delinquent li censes from County Treasurer Maher amounting to about $g,ooo, which Maher was unable to collect, and they placed a number of names in the hands of Justices Harrington and Doran, and ordered them to prosecute the delinquents. The justices followed the orders of the commissioners, and they have succeeded, in a little over a week's time, in reducing the total delinquency on the treasurer's books in the sum of Sa,Soo. That' amount has been forced into the coffers of the county treasurer by the prosecution or threatened prosecution in the courts of the justices named. The exact amount parl. on the delinquent list since the commissioners gave their or der could not be learned, because some of the money was paid into the courts and some into the treasurer's otfice, and be. cuse the latter office could not furnish figures on the subject. A Courteous Reply. When an interviewer asked for the figures at the treasurer's otffice today he was met with the statement: "Go chase yourself." The interviewer did not "chase himsell" at once, but he did not succeed in getting any figures from the treasurer's office. He was told that the office could not give him any figures because it did not keep any ac counts. Judge Doran furnished the information that in the case of John 1Powers, a saloon man who was on the list charged with $6oo worth of licenses, the treasurer's office bad settled with Powers for $3oo. At the treasurer's office there was a dif ferent version of the Powers transaction. TherethSinterviewer wastold that Powers had paid $300oo for the license covering tie st two quarters and still owed the county 300 for the two quarters which lie ahea,. eo was arrested and thrown into jail about a week ago. He had a heLring and he agreed to settle what he owed with the treasurer, and he made some satisfactory settlement with the latter and the charge against him was dismissed. Oon't Know Exactly. Judge Harrington could not give a state ment on the exact amounts paid into his court. Neither could Judge Doran. Judge Doran stated that he understood that further prosecutions would be carried on, and this morning he issued a warrant charging Mrs. Kempf, who runs the Mary land block, with failing to pay her license, amounting to the sum of $s15 It is understood that the commissioners will keep on with the good work of cot lecting the licenses .or the treasurer b,, furnishing the justices with more names and ordering further prosecut-ons. From the results of the work already accomplish. ed, it looks as if the method adopted here to get the county's tooney into the treas ury was a successful one. Billiards at the Plater.

Mrs. Bane alleges that the words were used for the purpose of impugning her character in the way related( She adds that at the same time and place Ryan said that he could prove his first state ment by 2o people, and that be made that statement for the same purpose as the first. She proceeds to relate that she is the mother of two children and that they live with her, and she is of good repute. She avers that the statements and accusations she attributed to Ryan "greatly humiliated her and caused her great mental distress and worry, and injured her feelings and reputation and good name" in the sum of $SS,ooo.

BUTTE PEOPLE IN THE FIRE AT SALT LAKE Several Have Offices in the Atlas and Other Blocks-Worst Disaster in History of the City.

WESTERN WOOD BEST Three Million Feet of Cal ifornia Timber Go to Niagara Falls. BY ASWoS IATFED PEFES. San Francisc, Fceb. ..- -The Niagara Falls Power company has made a bid for 3,000,000 feet of redwood timber to be de livered at lBuftalo, N. Y., next July. The offer has been accepted and the deal will probably. close within a few days. The ledwood is to be used instead of steel for a great tunnel to be constructed this, suIm m.er. The reason given for the preference for the California wood is that when water passes over it continuously, there forms a surface of soapy and fpasty nature, which is proof against corrosion, whereas in the case of steel, the particles of sand and mat ter carried with great velocity from Ni agara river cuts into and destroys the steel in an incredibly short space of time.
