THE BUTTE INTER MOUNTAIN
VOL. XXII. No. 308. BUTTE, MONTANA, FRIDAY MARCH 13, 1903. PRICE FIVE CENTS ALL TROUBLE IS OVER Run on State Savings Bank is Very Quickly Ended. MANY OFFERS OF HELP Bankers in New York and Omaha Ready With Money. WIRE TO BUTTE MEN No Sign of Yesterday's Flurry Was in Sight Today. J. O. Hodgens, assistant cashier of the State Savings bank and now in charge of that institution, and Judge G. W. Stapleton, vice-presi dent of the bank, made the follow ing statement this morning: "Please publish in the Inter Mountain this evening our unquali fled denial of the rumors that have been afloat that the Amalgamated Copper company or any of its inter ests had anything to do with start ing the run on our bank. These stories are among those put in cir culation by some designing or irre sponsible persons, and no doubt had their effect in frightening depositors. So far from these stories being true, we have every reason to know that they are baseless fabrications. The officers and the institutions allied with the Amalgamated C.opper com pany were the first to tender their services. The action of Mr. Hennes av of Mr. Ryan, of Mr. Wood, of Mr. Carroll and others is ample evi dence that their desire was to pro tect and help rather than injure us. In this connection we want to testify our appreciation of the splendid manner in which the financial and commercial interests of Butte have stood by us. It was a remarkable exhibition of friendliness and one which we appreciate fully." Today no sign remained of yesterday's run on the State Savings bank. That in stitution was doing business as ever, but lacking the crowd of excited depositors in the corridors and before the counters. The run is over and the State Savings bank has not been harmed a whit by the trouble through which it passed yester day. Telegrams offering aid have been pour ing in today trom many friends of the institution. One, which came this morn ing from W. L. Moyer of New York, is particularly interesting. Mr. Moyer left here a year or two ago to go to New York, prior to his departure having been the Moyer of the Daly, Donahoc & Moyer Banking company, now the Daly Bank & Trust company. lie is at present presi dent of the Shoe & Leather bank, one of the great financial institutions of New York, and recently he became the head of a new $8,000ooo,ooo000 trust company. Here is his telegram, sent from New York: "T. M. Hodgens, Cashier State Savings Bank: Just returned home. Morning papers tell of run on bank. Do you need any help? Answer. "W. L. MOYER." CREIGHTON BENDS WIRE. Other telegrams of a similar character were received. Here is the telegram sent late yesterday afternoon by the president of the institution: 'Omaha, Neb., March aI, 4:2o p. m, T. M. Hodgens, Cashier, or Board of Di rectors, State Savings Bank: Report that I have sold my State Savings bank stock is utterly false. My State Savings stock is not for sale at any price. "J. A. CREIGHTON, President." At a meeting of the executive board of the Woman's club of Butte this morning it was decided unanimously to retain the club deposits in the bank. A resolution was passed expressing confidence in the stability of the institution. Last night at a meeting of the bank's board of directors the following resolution was passed: "Resolved, That whereas, the busi ness men of Butte have unanimously and without reserve kindly and persist ently tendered their assistance to this bank, both financial and with their per sonal influence, many of them devoting their valuable time; now, therefore, be it "Resolved, That we, the directors, tender our heartfelt thanks and warm ap preolation to the merchants and others who so assisted us In allaying fears on the part of the depositore."

VICTIM OF CRUEL MURDER MADE A WILL CUTTING OUT HIS WIFE WITHOUT A PENNY How the Late Millionajre of Buffalo, Edwin L. Burdick, Slain in His Own Home, Disposed of His Riches. BY .1AOfIATFD PRESS. Buffalo, N. Y., March 3.--The will of the lhte Edwin L. Burdick, murdered in his home here Friday, February 27, was made public today. He cuts ofl his wife, whom he was suing for divorce, without a cent. He leaves $2,soo to relatives and WALLS OF WAlER MENACING MANY FLOODS IN SOUTHERN CITIES ARE EATING THEIR WAY INTO STRONG LEVEES. BY ASSO'IATED PRFSS. New Orleans, March is.-The absence of news up to this time indicates that the Arlington levee has not given away. President Leake, of the Pontchartrain levee board, said today that 2o,ooo sacks of material and men have been hurried to the scene. Arlington is an old levee and acknowledged to be unsafe. Contracts were let sonime months ago for a new levee behind it, but owing to the long season of rainy weather the second levee has not been completed. Work is being done upon it with great vigor and in the meantime Governor lleard, the levee board and planters are doing all in their power to maintain the old embankment. A break at Arlington would flood valu able sugar lands and interfere with traffic over the railroads. Excitement Near Baton Rouge. BY A..OCIATED I'IISS. Donaldsonville, l.a., March 13.-Great excitement prevails here because 'phone-ad vices tell of an impending break in the levee near Baton Rouge. Hands are being corralled on all planta tions across the river and hundreds of them are being sent on a special trail to the scene of trouble. Should the levee give away all of the new river section of this parish will be flooded. The region is populated principally by poor small farm ers. Worst Over in Indiana. BY ASSOCIATED PRESS, Evansville. Ind., March 13.-The river marked 42 feet here today. This shows that the water is falling and as the weather has cleared, another serious rise is not ex pected. Farmers are preparing to return to their homes and the worst is belivcyed to be over. The damage to winter wheat is heavy. River Falling. New Orleans, March St.--There was a decrease in the rise of the river here during the past 24 hours, the official gauge reading 18.8 feet, a rise of one-tenth. The river is now seven-tenths of a foot below the record of 1897. The serious ness of the situation is increased, how ever, by the continuance of rainy weather, which is softening the levees along the Lou siana line. Large forc:s continue to sack the city front and engineers are still hopeful that the local line of embankments will stand the strain imposed upon them. Flying gangs were dispatched to different points during the night on reports which reached the engineers of weakening spots, but they were in every instance found to be exaggerated. Both banks of the river above the city are being guarded to pre vent the cutting of levees. At Memphis. Memphis, March 13.-The river rose five-tenths of a foot in the past 24 hours, the gauge today marking 36.s feet. All indications still point to a stage of 38 feet by Sunday or Monday. A report from Carruthersville, Mo., says the work on the new levee is pro gressing night and day. The Immediate country around the town is covered with from three to five feet of water. All outbound boats are loaded with men and supplies for the flooded districts. Advices from Mississippi state that many people in Cohoma county are alarmed over the situation. The engi neers, however, say the levees were never so strong and claim there is no danger of a break. The seep and backwater is daily growing deeper behind the levees. Business in the country is practically at a standstill. In Arkansas the rivers are falling and all danger is believed to be passed. The Red river between Shreveport and Alex andria is two feet above the danger line. WANTS $5,000 FOR PERSONAL INJURIES James Moran today filed a suit in the district court against the Kennett Mining company to recover $5,ooo damages. He alleges that while working for the defend ant in the bottom of the Denver mine shaft the negligence of the latter caused the bucket that hung there to slip from the hook and fall on him. He says his right leg was broken and he was otherwise injured, and that his an guish, sickness and so forth are worth *5,ooo.

Great Falls, March 1.--The land office ROW OVER A FLAT Trouble Between Tenant and Landlady on West Galena Street. There is trouble brewing for Mrs. Ken dall, the landlady of a flat-house at No. i 6 Galena street, according to Deputy County Attorney Coleman of the county attorney's office. The trouble may possibly involve Mrs. Kendall's daughter, Mrs. W. Hill of No. 411 South Washington street. The party who complained against the ladies is James Robertson, who is a tenant of the flat house above referred to, and who owes a certain amount of rent to Mrs. Kendall. Robertson caused Coleman to write Mrs. Kendall a letter asking her to come up and explain acts of hers in an effort made by her to collect the re-t, efforts which Robertson did not relish, and which the deputy prosecutor thought might entangle Mrs. Kendall with the law. Robertson complained that Mrs. Kendall waited till he and his wife went to town and his boy departed for school, and then entered his flat and took away so much of their clothing, among other things, that the family have not been able to make a respectable appearance in society since. When Mrs. Kendall came up to Mr. llreen's oflice to explain this morning, she admitted having taken the clothes of the tenants to make them settle up, as much as so times. Mr. Coleman told her it would not do to take the garments that her tenants wore upon their backs, and advised the lady to return the wearing apparel to avoid arrest. She thought the matter over awhile, and went away without promising. Robertson told Coleman that Mrs. Ken dall took two suits of clothes belonging to him, and that the rather seedy suit which he wore was all he had left to wear in the world. He also said that his boy had not been able to shine in public since t*l calamity, and that his wife was simply re duced to tears. The property which Mrs. Kendall i accused of levying upon and confiscating during the absence of her had-paying ten ants, is scheduled and listed by Robertson as follows : One Singer sewing machine, $ao; two suits of men's clothes, one overcoat, one suit underclothes, three or four dresses, so or 3o dishes, quantity of boy's underwear, one mirror, two or three cooking utensils. The latter things valued at $Soo." Mr. Robertson declared that the appro priation of his dishes and cooking things had almost stopped his domestic affais and left him without the means of eatinl. What the upshot of the affair will be remains to be seen. Mrs. Kendall declares that if Robertson did not indulge in drink so much he could pay his rent.
