As banquets go last night's affair was a most flattering success, that will linger long in the memory of those who were present as an occasion fraught with no end of good for the greatest mining camp on earth. The men who blased the trail into Montana many years ago, who helped to make Butte what it is, and who in the evening of life enjoy the fruits of a well spent life, joined with the younger genera. tion, many of whom but recently came from other states, in extolling the possi bilities of this city in commercial and other ways. Rarely if ever in the history of Butte has there been a gathering of the business men and other prominent citizens of this city that proved to be such an elab orate and highly successful function. The committee on arrangements had per formed its duty well, as was evidenced by the splendid manner in which everything passed off. There were about ig5 present about the tables, arranged E shape, in the main dining hall of the Thornton hotel. Potted palms, smilax and other evidences of the florist's art added a tropical tinge to the occasion. Silver and glassware glinting in the brilliant light added to the etfective ness of the picture presented when the party gathered around the banquet board, and one of the most memorable feasts in the history of the state became a reality. At the center table was seated Hon. H. M'GINTY'S ALLEGED CONFESSION IS USED AGAINST HIM IN TRIAL Lawyers Protest That It Was Given Under Duress and Is Therefore Ineligible as Evidence. A confession that \Valter II. Mc(Ginty made to Chief of P'olice Reynolds, L ity Detective Jerry Murphy and Sergeant of Police Dawson after he was arrested Dec cember as, on the charge of being impli cated in the theft of a safe from J. it. Seckler's saloon, was used against him to day during his trial in Judge McClernan's court on the charge of burglary. Mlc(in ty's lawyers made a desperate eftort to keep the evidence from the jury, but after hearing extended arguments Judge M1c Clernan allowed it to be offered. The foundation of the objection to thant line of testimony which was damaging to the defendant was that he was not warned that ie should not incriminate himself; that he was not advised of his rights; that he was sick; that the confession was not voluntary, being given under duress, and that the prosecution had not sustained the burden of the voluntary character of the evidence. These matters were argued to the court yesterday afternoon and a decision was rendered at the beginning of court today as stated. The progress of the trial today was de cidedly slow. The atmosphere in Judge McClernan's courtroom was far from warm and the unpleasant condition seemted to have an irritating effect upon the respec tive counsel who frequently crossed swords. More than once it became nccssary for Judge McClernan to call the attorneys down and once the court plainly told the attorneys that unless there was less bick ering he would have to punish them. The attorneys for the defense, of whom there are three, registered frequent obhec tions during th testimony of the three oln cers named relative to the confession of McGinty. At times toe objections were quite technical and were overruled. Many, however, were sustained. It is not expected that the case can reach the jury before tomorrow afternoon. Chief of Police Reynolds resumed the stand after Judge McClernan had over ruled the objections to his being allowed to testify relative to what McGinty had told him. The witness said McGinty told him voluntarily everything he said. The chief of police then told what McGinty said to him on the evening of December as rela tive to the theft of the safe. "This is a t--1 of a jack-pot you are in," was the witness' greeting to McGinty. lie asked McGinty where the safe was but McGinty did not know. McGinty said Miller and Whorman put the safe in the buggy and Miller drove off with the safe. McGinty and Whorman waited for Miller to return, but he did not come back. The understanding was the safe was to be placed under a viaduct on the road to the race track. The witness said he was more interested in learning of the where ahouts of the safe than anything else. After talking with MoGinty the chief said he detailed Officer McGillie and another AMERICANS AND PLAY. One Author Says They Do Not Know How to Take Defeat. "American men as a rule do not know how to play," said Frank Sherman Peer, when asked how he came to write his "Cross Country With Horse and Hound," Lust published by the Scribners, says the Book Buyer. "The nearest most of us come to it after we leave school Is to buy a bag of peanuts and a ticket to the grand stand and shout ourselves hoarse at a lot of hired men playing baseball. In England it is different-arnd what a fine, hearty lot of men they are I American boys graduate from school and college from one to three years younger than the English boys, but the latter live from ro to so years longer. This is because they know how to play. It is the secret of their longevity. Most Americans have shot their bolt at So. You speak of college athletics as being all the rage in America. College athletics, yes, but college play, no. In most American colleges all the playing is done by , or 4 per cent of the students. In a college of s,ooo men 6o to 8o will go in for field sports. The rest look on or are driven so hard by studies that they have no time to Ilay. The trouble with the American oys is they want to be first or nothing. They like to play as long as they can win; failing, all interest in the game for them is gone. The American boy is a good fighter, but he cannot stand defeat; it seems to humiliate him. "In England it is different. In a col lege of s,ooo students, :ooo at least will be daily engaged in field sports, and for sport's sake. In England a schoolboy must go out and play; it is a part of his education. He is obliged to put in so many hours at play. He not only learns how to play and play fair, but to take de. feat in a thoroughly sportsmanlike man ner." Australianlem. At present, says the Sydney Bulletin, the Australian commonwealth pays $Sas,. cwe&Cdi b wue ,q., 2&A msvv. L. Frank, the toastmaster, and upon either side at the speakers' table, were Hon. Lee Mantle, Non. C. F. Kelley, C. W. Goodale, c1 CON KELLEY W. W. Walsworth. Eugene Carroll. W\. O. Speer, W. McC. White, J. W. Passmore, policeman to make a search. The officers looked around the flat and then visited the vicinity of the graveyard. Later word was received of the discovery of the safe near Lloyd's ranch. Under Sheritf Mc Guigan had in the meantime arrived at the place and with others was taking posses sion of the safe when Reynolds arrived. The witness sail he saw tracks, evidently made by a rubber-tired wagon. Counsel became involved in an animated discussion as to the admissibility of this evidence and Judge Mct'lcrnan said if a halt was not called some one would be fined. The witness upon cross-examination admrtted he had been in error in regard to the date that Mc(;inty made the con fession to him. It was December s5, instead of Dlecember z6, as he had first testified yesterday afternoon. The wit ness was asked many questions relating to the confession of Mc(;inty, Attornery Italdwin requiring the chief of police to go into the minutest details. The court refused to grant the motion of counsel to strike out all of Reynolds' testimollny. City Detective Jerry Murphy testified that he had known Mc(;inty for two or three years when the latter was a murm ber of the police force. The witn, ss asked McG;inty where the safe was. Mc Ginty told him he was drunk at the timle the safe was taken and he had helled Miller and Whorman place it in the wagon. lie did not know where the safe was. McGinty said lie wanted nt gIt out of the alTair as soon as possile,. Mr. Murphy detailed the steps he took to try to locate the safe. lie visit dl Marlo 's livery stable and learned that a rig had been taken after midnight of IDecember 25. The county attorney tried to draw from the witness whether McGinty was the party who secured the rig, but Judge lscClernan ruled out that and simlilar questions. A conversation the witness had with Whorman, one of the accused, was also ruled out, and the county attor ney cut the questioning short by saying, testify: "'Take the witness." "What's that?" asked the court. "I said 'take the witness,' " replied the.. county attorney. J. Bruce Kremer then took the witness in hand and a long cross-examination en sued as to what McGinty told hint about taking the safe. The accused had not been offered any immnunity for telling about the affair. ,The witness admitted that McGinty was recovering from a spree and was not in a normal mental or physical condition. Sergeant Dawson of the police force was then called to tell what he knew of the confession of McGinty that was made in the presence of himself, Murphy and Reynolds. He told about the same story as was testified to by Murphy and Reynolds relative to what McGinty said about helping to place the safe an the wagon and where it was to be taken. The cross-examination of Captain Daw son brought out nothing new. Barney McGillic, the policeman, and ooo a year for the use of a small British squadron, which is supposed also to wan der round Maoriland, Fiji and half the South Pacific. Australia has no control whatever over this squadron, but the understanding is that, if attack really comes, it will uc ,ound somewhere within these very wide limits and ready to do its duty. But the limits are too wide for the squadron to be anything like a reasonable security, and at least one admiral frankly informed this country that if war really eventuated the squadron would probably make for the seat of hQstilities regardless of the agrement, and leave Australia at the mercy of any casual cruisers which managed, on the wide ocean, to dodge the British vessels. Obviously, under these conditions, it is time for the commonwealth to give up subsidizing this unreliable fleet and to spend one and a half million dol lars to two and a half million dollars a year on a fleet of its own-one that will be here when wanted and which should be strong enough to cope with at least a few casual cruisers. Australia thinks of cut.' ting the knot by getting measured for its' own cocked hat. A $100,000 Fire. Chicago, Feb. z3.-A dispatch to the Tribune from Danville, Ill., says fire at Hlimrod, a mining village near here, has burned the mine store, oil house and dwellings of the Kelleyville Coal com pany, besides a saloon, the postoffice and several small buildings,.

When the coffee and the cigars were reached, Toastmaster Frantk, iin his happi I't vein, rapped for order, and spoke felici tously upon the significance of the occa lontt. Mr. Frank read a telegram from .\ F. Blray, int which the latter expressed his regret at his intahility to be present. The toastmaster reviewed the dilTerent efforts made in IlButte to orgatnize boards ,,f trade, chambers of commerce, anl simil lar organizations, that had for their cardi iI;,l principles the uphuilding of Butte. "I he speaker was liberally applauded as he lmphasized that the underlying object of all these gatherings was to ring to Butte a: union depot and a federal building. Mr. :tank was once designated to go to \Wash Ington and endeavor to urge the lawmiak ers to give Butte a federal building. Ills Mr.. Smith, two state iwitnesses, were not prrsent when called and Judge McClernan irdered attachmenets issued for them. I.ater counsel for the defense told the court they would admit that Mrs. Smith ouhld testify that Mc(;inty was not in his room in the lHolland hIdging house, of which she was proprictress, on the even ig of I)Dcember :.4. Alter a recess Mct;illic appeared andil the court lectured hin severrly for not Iinig on hand when wanted.

"This court does inot wait on Judge Ilarrillgton's court," said Judge Mchl'er "It is a felony case, your honor," sail the county attorney. "We\'ll, so is this," said the court.

For mer ULler Sherilf Mciuigaln told of the recovery of thie safe anld its returnl to its owHner.
