W EST PARK STReET IURGEON IN TOILS LADY WHOSE FIRST NAME IS ONLY BLANCHE SAYS HENRY DID ASSAULT HER. Henry Turgeon and, a lady whose first name is Blanche, had difficulties yester day afternoon. As a consequence the woman told the police this morning that Turgeon, now serving a $to fine in the city jail, had pawned all her jewelry. 'Ihe occurrence, which led to a police court scssion before Judge Boyle in which Blanche told her troubles, was not alto gether of the ordinary. Turgeon says he came to the lady's rooms after some of his possessions, and she in turn demanded soime of hers. In the troubles which fol lowed she tore up all of Turgeon's photo graphs, leaving, however, one of himself. As a happy climax Turgeon, she says, assaulted her. At any rate he talked so loudly and in such language that the neighborhood on South Wyoming street was aroused. As a consequence Detective Barney MlcGillic arrested Turgeon. IMillinKs.

Butte, Mont., April t3, :goj. Mr. Dan Brown, Assessor, Silver Bow County, Mon tans: Dear Sir-Your favor of the aith Inst., which reads as follows: Ifon. Peter Breen, County Attorney, Silver BIow county. Dear Sir - Kindly render me an opinion as soon as pos. sible on the following: Can I assess cash in the hands of George H. Spencer, trustee in bankruptcy of Sam W. Nixon, doing business under the name of the Silver City Mercantile company? Can I assess the cash in the hands of John W. Harris, receiver of the Snohomish & Tramway mines? Kindly render this opinion as soon as pos sible, as the money in the hands of Mr. Spencer is liable to be distributed within the next few days. Respectfully yUrls, Dan Brown, assessor, per Louis I. Harris, deputy, was duly received, and in compliance with your request, the following opinion is respect fully submitted: Assessing money In the hands of a receiver: The general rule of taxation of property is set forth in' Section 367o Political Code c I Montana, and reads as follows: Section 3670. All property in this state io subject to taxation, except as provided masthe next section. The exceptions to this rule are found in Section 6y71, Political Code, and Sectio-n Article XII, Constitution of Montana, whichl read as follows: See. St. The property of the United States, the state counties, cities, towns Mo0l districts, municipal cornorstions, ubti abra. rise, such other property as o used exclus vely for agricultural and horticultural societies, for educational purposes, places of actual reli ous worship, hospitals and places of burial not used or held for private or corporate profit, and institutions of purely public charity are exempt from taxation, but no more land than is necessary for such purposes is exempt. Sec. a. Art. XII, Constitution. The property of the United States the states, counties, cities towns, school .districts, municipal or. poroaton, tand public libraries, shall be exempt Iem taxation; and such other property as may be used exclusively for agricultural Jad hert. cultural societlee; for eduestional pur s, places for actual rellgious werlhp, norah and places of burial not used oablil.' hld pi vate or corporate profit, and institutdone of purely public charity may be exempt from ta theon. Taxation Is the rule and > emption the ex. ceptlon, and under the provisions of the Con. tltution an Political Code of this tes, Co above quoted, money or prooerty in t den of receiver are ot excepted fr the e t8ra rule of teaill ;but n the etfry lection 2711, tolitiqal 8oGqe of Montana covers thl queastJon e tvation of mna e Md serton rr va 1 llowl ,S. .arl. Money and property In Utigaton j in pos ion ouny tresel , Or court or a C thereof, or es ver, must he assessed to such treasurer, clerk or receiver, iý, e taxes paid thereon under the direc o the court. Assesnsin money in the possession of a trus. tee in bankruptcy: Section 6t-a of the bank. ruptcy act of ,8g@, reads as follows: cec. 64. Debtd which have priority-a. The court shall order the trustee to pay all taxes legally due and owing by the bankrupt to the United States, state, county districts, or municipality in advance of tiS payment of dividends to creditors, and upon filing the receipts of the proper public oMcers for such payment he shall be credited with the amount thereof, and in case any question arises as to the amount or legality of any such tax the same shall be heard and determined by the court. This section was passed upon and interpret. ed recently in the case of In re Conhaim, :oo Fed. .68 (:goo), which holds that the provi. rion of the bankruptcy act that the trustee "shall pay all taxes legally due and owing by the bankrupt" (Sec. 64-a), intends that, while the estate is in the hands of the trustee, his custody of It shall not operate as a bar to the collection of taxes which would be collectable under the law if the property had remained in the possession and control of the bankrupt himself. Under the provisions of the constitution and codes of the state of Montana, and Section 64-a of the bankruptcy act and decision there on, above quoted, both of your questions as to your authority to assess money in the hands of a receiver and trustee in bankruptcy are answered in the affirmative, and I would so advise you. Respectfully, Peter Breen, county attorney, by J. A. Coleman, deputy county attorney. A PRETTY SPECTACLE CROWDS ATTRACTED TO EXHIBIT BY THE LEWIS DRY GOODS COMPANY. Oranges growing beside a Butte pave. ment attracted many curious ones today. Blossoms dropped their petals and scat, tcred fragrance through the air; green fruit clung to the branches, and great ripe spheres hung close by. The unique sight drew crowds who gathered on the sidewalk before the large show windows of the Lewis Dry Goods company. The tree is the property of W. A. Clark, Jr., and it was loaned by him to the Lewis Dry Goods company. Sur rounded by dainty fabrics and late de signs in women's apparel, it was as pretty a sight as one could run across at this season. Outside men and women gathered in the spring sunshine and looked at the bit of semi-tropical scenery within. To those who had spent winters in California it came as a pleasant reminder of happy days and beautiful places they had known in the past. To others it was pretty in itself. The tree is about four years old. It stands six feet high, and has a trunk three inches in circumference. Its branches spread five feet over all. The funeral of Charles M. Brisbin will leave the family residence on Moore's ranch tomorrow afternoon at a o'clock, proceeding to the Christian church, cor ner Washington and Mercury streets, where services will be conducted by Rev. A. L. Chapman. FUNERAL NOTICE. CAVANAGH-The funeral cortege of Mrs. Ellen CavJnalh will leave residsce, No. 41 el hee ctdt church, where masl will be ma st to a 'tlok.

It is the contention of William Wall ace, Jr., attorney for the Aorthern Pa cific Railway company, that the law passed by the last legislature amending the li cense law, operated to prevent the agents for the express and railroad companies in Butte being liable for the fine imposed by the police magistrate against them for not paying tLe occupation license imposed by the city. As Judge IMcClernan was setting cases today Mr. Wallace objected to the court setting the cases of the city against G. k Eaton and S. R. Graves, the agents for the Northern Pacific Express and Rail road companies. He filed a written objec tion and later addressed the court in sup port of his contention. The court allowed the city attorney so days to file a reply brief after which the case will be decided. The defendants were fined by the police magistrate for failing to pay the occupa tion license of $ras per quarter imposed by the city council. An appeal was taken to the district court. Mr. Wallace contended that as the legis lature had since passed a law taking from the city the power of imposing licenses of that character, the case should be dis missed. The assistant city attorney replied brifly, opposing the contention. The court took the matter under advise ment. There are also pending cases of similar nature against the agents of the Great Northern, the B., A. & P. and the Oregon Short Line, and they will proba bly be disposed of with the disposition of the cases presented today. HE PLEADS NOT GUILTY "Not guilty." So declared the accused in the case of the State against Van Horne, charged with burglary, when asked by Judge McClernan today for his plea. The court set the case for trial April 84. Judge McClernan after disposing of mat ters set for today adjourned court until Friday morning, when the task of select ing a jury in the Kelley case will be re sumed.

According to the evidence brought out in Justice Corrigan's court in Walkers ville yesterday, Daniel M. Arbour evi dently goes on the old theory, "a dog, a woman, a hickory tree; the more you beat em', the better they be." At any rate, the testimony was to the effect that April 4 the defendant Arbour indulged in a little game of poker with the plaintiff and got himself into a jack. pot thereby. He seemed to hold all the cards, and it was his deal, so he dealt her a blow on the forehean that resulted in a three* inch scar. The plaintiff testified that for eight years she had kept house for the defendant and had never before been treated in such a discourteous manner. On the night in question the night in question the doughty wielder of the fire-stick came home full of whisky and enthusiasm. He started in on a course in physical culture and made the mistake of taking the plaintiff as one of the appliances. Her face was turned, she testified, when the blow was struck. The poker landed so hard that she was unable to follow the Biblical injunction and turn the other cheek. Arbour made no defense, and was bound over to the district court. DAMMYERS __INJURED J. W. Dammyers, shift boss at the West Colusa mine, was painfully injured in a peculiar manner last night. Falling through a floor Ihe struck on a plank standing on end on the floor below. A broken rib and severe contusions will con. fine him to his bed for some time. Ordinarily a fall for that distance would not have necessarily resulted in severe in. Juries. Dammyers, however, had the bad luck to strike directly on the end of the plank. He was taken to his home at No. 745 East Mercury street, where Dr. Lar. sons dressed his Injuries.
