WOMAN WAS PREVIOUSLY OF A CHASTE CHARACTER She Is Taken to the Local Florence Crittenton Mission-Preliminary "Ex amination in Libby's Court-Now the Alleged Betrayer of Female Purity Must Appear Before McClernan. Josl5eph Camus, who is accused of de bauching and ruining a Belgian girl named Blanche Toussant, has a stormy time ahead. This morning he was charged by information, filed in Judge McCler nan's court, with the crime named, and he must stand trial there,. The information, which was presented by County Attorney Breen, avers that the offense was committed on February 24, 1903. It also says that the woman, who is about 26 years old and rather good looking in an ordinary way, was of pre vious chaste and moral character. As soon as the information was filed, Judge McClernan ordered that a bench warrant for Camus be immediately issued. The woman has been detained in the women's department of the county jail for several days, and the preliminary ex amination in the case was held yesterday in Judge Libby's court in Mleadervillc. Today the woman was taken to the Flor ence Crittenton mission, conducted by Mrs. Hlamilton. The preliminary ex:amination of Camus lasted all yesterday afternoon, and was not concluded on adjournment. A con tinuance was taken to Monday at 4 o'clock, but inasmuch as the prosecuting attor ney has filed an information already, the hearing will not be resumed. County Attorney Breen conducted the prosecution and William E. Carroll ap peared for the defense. The testimony of the witness tended to show that she had been sent west by a matrimonial agency at the request of Camus and had arrived here on February as at a o'clock in the morning; that she had gone directly to Camus' residence and lived with him for several days, when he abused her for buying dress goods and she left him. She was sent to the Florence Crittenton 4ome in Helena and afterward brought back to be a witness in the examination of Camus. She was a dressmaker by trade, having worked at It since she was as years old. She is now So. She alleges that Camus has frequently promised to marry her, but has not car ried out his promise.

Mr. Finnerty's address will be along much the same lines as those of Mr. Dev lin. SPORT GOSSIP (Continued from Page Nine.) Helena on Arbor day and Iloaeman here May a and 26. Herrera will get back to Butte today and keep in condition for his fight with Jack Richards Thursday night at the Broadway gymnasium. The little Mexican is indeed leading the life strenuous. It was only last night that he laid the "Basin Cyclone" low, and three days later he will take on a sturdy boxer and under take to stop him in six rounds or forfeit a healthy side bet. On the 7tth he will meet the best light weight in this neck of the woods when he faces Kid Fredericks in Havre. That's going some. By the way, Jack Richards was in this morning and said: "The morning papers have it that I am to meet Herrera at s38 pounds. I admit that would be giving me lots the best of it and I want it corrected. We agreed to weigh 133 pounds ringside. I am now down to 131 pounds and have a few to 'bet I won't weigh over I3a pounds when the gong sounds." Richards looks hard as nails and fully able to give a good account of himself. JOHN H.
