BRASS RINGS FOUND Evidence That Skeleton Is That of a Woman of Chinese Empire. sPICIAL TO THE. INTER MOUNTAIN. Bozeman, March 3o.-While excavating for a cellar underneath the building known as the Eagle saloon on Main street today, workmen exhumed a human skeleton. The grewsome discovery created considerable excitement as it was believed the bones told the unchronicled story of a crime of long ago. The coroner will thoroughly in vestigate the matter. As the building had stood over the spot for as years, the crime, if there was one, was committed in the early days of Boze man. The skeleton was in a fair state of preservation. The top of the skull had been sawed off. Upon one of the fingers were three rings that had not yielded to the action of the soil which had destroyed the flesh they once encompassed. SAYS THE REMAINS ARE THOSE OF SOME CHINAMAN Big Loy, a local Chinaman, on seeing the rings said that the skeleton was that of a Chinese woman. He removed the rings and upon a close examination found that they were made of brass. The size of the skeleton, which is small, and other appearances, bear out the theory of the Chinaman that the bones are those of a woman of his race. The building stood upon what was once the bed of Sour Dough creek. It is very possible that the person's body may have been thrown into the stream and been car ried by the water underneath the building where it was lodged in the ground and covered with silt.
