Mr. ShoreI. i ',rrectcdI the testimony of (Charles W. Clark regardling conversations preceding the iicetlng of August 5. Said I le: I "Charles W. Clark, John Forbis and I never discussed together on any occa sion the matter of paying any money to Judge Harney. I cannot recall ever having talked or discussed with Charley Clark the matter of the affidavits we had regarding the m:sconduct of Judge Harney nor the evidence that we had obtained " l1he witness also corrected the testi moniy of Jesse B. Roote in the particular that k,.te told of an allegedl meeting be tweent Charley Clark and Shores at the I residlence of Charley Clark on the after- I nI.t of August 5, precediing the Thornton hotel meeting. ('lark has already testified that no such meeting took place. "I had no such mtteeting or conversation," said the witness. "I never was in the Charley Clark residence un'til last Novem ber and after my daughter had arranged r with Mrs. Clark for the lease of the house. That holuse is now being occupied by tmy -elf artd family. Personal Relations Unfriendly. d "My perronal relations with the various I memni,rs of the Clark family never have v biten very friendly.

We never spe:k. I had nIever been in the Charley t Clark house prior to last November, and I was not there on August 5." Regarding Hotel Conference. Thenti canete thei detailed anrd interesting testimolny as to the facts Icading up to the hotel conference of the night of Aiu g.tut 5 anld the part the witness had therein. "'That afternoon I was informed by A. J. Caimpblell that lie hail been informed tby J. II. Rote that a mtteeting would lie held at o o,'clock that night at the Thornton hItel between Charles W. C('lark, Jesse H. lotite andl Judge Ilarney for the ptirpobe of a-certaining if a confession could be had fromn Judige Ilarney. "THAT WAS THE FIRST INFORMA TION I HAD RECEIVED THAT THERE WAS TO BE A MEETING. IT WAS A MEETING NOT SUGGESTED OR AR RANGED BY ,ME. PREVIOUS TO THIS NO TIME OR PLACE FOR SUCH A 'MEETING HAD EVER BEEN SUG GESTED TO IME BY ANY OF THE PEOPLE CONCERNED. I WAS NOT A PARTYTO ARRANGING THATMEET ING." "At that time I was livitg at the Thorn tn hotel. .Iy rimins were 4.1, 4u0 utid 413. \\hett portiots if tity family were away I gave up 41) anlldi secured therety a redtluctinl ill the rletal. "On Attgu;t s a Ilprtion of miy family was away anl I had given iup that room. Later that iight I ric-etigagcd it. Living at the hotel as 1 was, 1 was in the hotel office in the evcnint.g at the time these per sons were likely to, get together. "If I had not btetl living there I would not have been in the office. My motive in Ibeing there was largely curiosity ti wittess this meeting. A. J. tI'amlbell also was there, I presume fromt the 6saite imotive. Harney Enters Office. "At 9:3o o'clock that evening I was sit ting in a chair in the office when Jud;e lIarney came in from somtewhere in the building. He walked about the office for about ao minutes, talking to several atd dilfferent people, and then went out. I do not recall whether he spoke to tme. "Ablout to minutes ;.fter he had gone Mr. Roote camne in. In the nimeantinie I knew that Charley Clark was dining in the cafe with several friends. Roote walked about the olfce, spoke to several people in thle corner and tihen camne over to nme and sat down beside me. "I told him that Judge Harney had been there atid had gone out, probatly up to Mrs. Brackett's. IHe said, 'I will wait for himn if it takes all night.' "I gave him io reason for my sugges tion and he volunteered no reason for his. I supposed that the nmceting had failed be cause of the tardiness of Roote. Disappearance of Roote. S"A little after it o'clock Roote disap peared. In the meantime Clark had come out of the dining-room and gone away. I Sassumed that he htad gone to the Silver Bow club. It was his habit to do so. "My assumption as to Judge Harney's going to Mirs. Brackett's was founded on the same fact-it was his halit. Mr. Camp. bell was still in the office and I went over and sat down beside him. "The next day was August 6, the last on which affllidavits could be filed." While he did not say so at this point the manner of the witness indicated that about that time he had been getting anxikue. Continuing he said: "I told Campbell that I proposed to see that those parties had another opportunity to meet that night. Then I went to the telephone and called up Captain Stlve's, whom I found at his rooms, and said tMet Judge Ilarney was at Mrs. Brackett's and asked him to tell him to come down. "Captain Stivers, I believe, understood the situation. Captain Stivers went after the judge and they oame down together, arriving in ahout an minutes. "I don't remember the incident of Ken nedy's speaking to Hlarney at the elevator, nor do I remember going up in the eleva t,r with them, but I do remember seeiig them first in the room 403. Orders the Drinks. 2 "lmuedliately after their arrival I or dlered drinks by the office telephone. After they hald been consumed I went down to the office to notify Roote. I did so on the tellphlone. lie wae at home at the time. Ihe resputnded and arrived in uo or as min. utes. "leaving Judge Harney and Mr. Roote in the ro2m 4(o, Stivers and Campbell and I got inl a carriage and went to the Silver lflowv clul, to fihl (Charley (Clark. "( , arriving there I,. at least, got out of the carriane anl went up in the elevator. I found (tlark playing pool1 with Whitmore. "I said, 'Route and liarney are at my rooms,' and asked him if he would come down. lie said he would, and, dropping tihe cue, came at once. My recollection is that he. Slivers and I rodle back to the hotel in the hack, while Campbell walked. "O)n arriving at the rooms Judge liar ney, Roots and Challcy Clark were left in a room together. "DURING THE DRIVE TO THE HOTEL FROM THE CLUB AND DUR ING THE ENTIRE EVENING THERE WAS NOT A WORD OF CONVEISA TION BETWEEN ROOTE OR CLARK OR CAMPBELL AND MYSELF ABOUT THE PURPOSE OF THE MEETING. IT SEEMED TO BE UNDERSTOOD. DURING THE WHOLE TIME NO REF ERENCE WAS MADE TO THE MIN NIE HEALY CASE. MY BELIEF WA6 THAT I WAS GETTING PEOPLE T.O GETHER TO HOLD A MEETING THAT I UNDERSTOOD HAD PREVIOUSL.Y BEEN ARRANGED FOR. "That meeting in the rooms lasted all night, or until about 6:3o in the morning. "At the time that I telephoned from the hotel to Roote J. M. Kennedy was standing at the hotel office desk writing. lie was not imore than six or seven feet distant from me, and while I spoke Ih a low tone he no dout!,t could have heard what I said. "At the time I thought he was writing a note to Mac(;inniss because I suspected that he knew these people were there and Ssuspectel his purpose in being present. "John MaeGinniss arrived in a few milnutes and remained ablout the hotel tt' a late hour. lie was about the barroOra most of the time. There were a lot 0 people arouIal there that night. "I spent a large portion of my ti·g there while the conference was In proq rt.,; in my rooms upstairs. During the night Mr. MacG.;inniss and I spoke to gether frequently in the barroom and drank together. One Humorous Incident. ti "There was one humorous incident which I recall. Quite late I was sum- tn moned from the bar by a hell boy to go up to the rooms. MtacGinniss accompanied me to the elevator and insisted on going t utp with me to 403. "We had more or less jocular talk alout the matter. The boy was abouts to start the elevator up when I stopped him a until we decided the question as to who was going to 403, MacGinniss or I. "At that time MacGinniss entered into a lengthy talk deploring the existing liti gation between the Heinze interests and the Amalgamated. He said if the Amal gamated would only make Heinze gen eral manager it would not take a great deal of cash to settle the whole thing. "I tohl him that I w:,s not minister plenipotentiary and envoy extrao' dinary of the Amalgamated company, but that the question at issue was, 'Who was to go tup to 403 ?' lie insisted tl at he was to go. I said 'very well, you can have the elevator,' and I stepped out. Then he sail, 'Since you are so polite, you can have the elevator,' and he stepped out." Many Notes Taken. The witness told here of the chaffing that went on between himself and John Mac; iniss in the bar that night. MacGinniss had a notlook and a pencil and would prettend to keep notes on the movements of Shores and read out these pretendted notes, for instance: "At s:os a. m bell boy arrives and Mr. Shores goes to room 403." This testimony, of course, was merely to show that MacGinniss was fully in formed that such a conference was going ont in Mr. Shores' rooms and that there was no secret about it. Returning to the incidents of the rooms the witness said that while A. J. Campbell was present that gentleman had no interest in the matter save that of curiosity, "that; curiosity," he said, "which also affected Mr. MacGinniss, Mr. Kennedy and otherg on that night." Returning to his recital he said: :i I "DURING THE CONFERENCE ROOTED CAME OUT FROM THE ROOM ONCE' AND TOLD ME THAT CHARL.Y' CLARK HAD OFFERED HARNEY $260# 000. I WAS ASTONISHED AND AMAZED. MR. ROOTE IS QUITE RIGHT IN HIS TESTIMONY IN BAY-: ING THAT I SO EXPRESSED MYSELF.P "I suggested calling Mr. Clark out and, Mr. Roote did so. "I asked Clark if he had made such an' offer and he said he had. 'There is no, use taking it back,' he said, 'I have made him the proposition. What part of it will" your people stand for?' "I REPLIED 4 WAS NOT AUTHOR IZED TO SAY THAT MY PEOPKE, MEANING THE AMALGAMATED,1 WOU.D STAND FOR ANY PART OFP IT. I TOLD HIM I HAD NO AU THORITY WHATSOEVER TO MAKE ANY OFFER OF MONEY. 1-4E WANTED:. TO KNOW 4F WE WOULD STAND $100,000. I SAID THAT WHILE I HAD r NO AUTHORITY IN THE MATTER IF HE COULD GET THE INFORMATION s IT WOULD BE WORTH THAT a AMOUNT. HE SAID HE WOULD TAKE CARE OF IT HIMSELF, ANYHOW, AND WENT BACK IN THE ROOM. "That is the only time that money was referred to up to that incident in all the talk that had been had and in everything that had been said in my presence. To the time of the meeting there had been absolutely no talk whatever of a money consideration for what Judge Harney was to say. "We did not know how Charley Clark was to operate, but we were under the tm Ipression that Harney was afraid of criminal prosecution. Roote, from what he told us, apparently had been in confer ice with iHarney and had given us the imi ression that the confession was coming. '"Of course on the face of it it seemed ilprobable that a man In Harney's po lstion would make such a confession but still in view of all that we had heard, the infrnation we had gained, the peculiar make-up of Judge Harney-in view of all this it seened quite probable. "I BELIEVED THAT CHARLEY CLARK PROPOSED TO OPERATE SOLELY ON 'HIS FEARS. HENCE MY SURPRISE WHEN HE TOLD ME OF THE MONEY OFFER." 'The witness told of the incident of the lunch, practically as the other witnesses have related. As to the sending of Mrs. Ilrackett he contradicted the testimony of .lode IVarney flatly, saying that the send. rin for Mrs. Brackett had been ac *,,mplished because word had been sent t., him that Judge lHarney had requested that this be done. The witness had been v ilitng to sendl for her for the reasons sxil:ined in the following: "1 the reports of the detectives, which we had at that time and which will be introduced later, it had been shown that Mrs. Brackett had expressed a desire to µgt in communication with the Amalga mated people with a view to giving up her information as to the purchase of Judge llarney. Could Turn the Case. "She had said she could turn the Minnie Ilealy case either way by the information in her possession. In one report it was said that she wanted $ss.ooo for her Infor mation and in another $So,ooo. "There had been some talk of opening negotiations to pay her if the information was valuable. We all believe that she knew enough to justify it, but the question was as to whether she could be trusted. Nothing had been done in the matter so far. "It is possible, however, that I had told her of the possibility on her arrival at the hotel. "My recollection as to her coming to the hotel differs from that of other witnesses. My recollection is that she first came into room 4o3." "He's right there," whispered Judge Ilarney to Mr. Breen at this point. "Roote, Charley Clark and Harney were ill 402," went on the witness. I was in .o0 and Mrs. Brackett and I sat down on a sofa and I had a talk with her. "I told her what was wanted, a confes sion from Harney of his being bribed in the Minnie Healy case; that I was satis fied that she had been an agent in the matter. Mrs. Brackett Weakena. "At first she said Harney .was nno cent and that he had not been bribed, that he had not received a cent. On my insisting that he had her denial became weaker and weaker, and finally she said: "'WHY DID YOU NOT COME TO ME TEN DAYS AGO? I HAVE BEEN, TRYING UP TO 11 O'CLOCK TO NIGHT TO MAKE HIM STAND PAT.' "The upshot of the conversation was that in consideration of $ao,ooo, which we were to pay her, she was to do everything to get a confession from Judge Ilarney and give us her information. Clark came in about that time and he voluntarily said that he would add $s,ooo to the amount if she succeeded in her efforts. "Judge Hlarney was then called in and we left him and Mrs. Brackett together alone. They were in conference about half an hour, at the end of which time the door opened and they came into 40o where we were. "The judge said something about it be ing time to go home. Their demeanor in dicated that there had been no result of the conference. "It was evident that Mrs. Brackett had failed. Captain Stivers offered to get her a carriage, but she said that Judge Harney would take her home, and he did so." 'Makes Positive Denial. Mr. -Shores denied in the most positive manner that on their emerging from the room:, or at any other time, Mrs. Brackett had reviled and verbally abused himself and the others, as testified to by Judge liarney. Ile declared that nothing more was said than he has here testified to, that it was a very quiet and tame ending of an all nigiht conference and that Judge Harney's testimony to the contrary is false. The witness then took up a number of incidents and bits of testimony given by other witnesses and already contradicted by himself in the foregoing general state ment, and gave detailed and emphatic de nials of them. In reference to the conversation sworn to by the detectives as taking place be tween Judge Harney and Mrs. Brackett on the Columbia gardens car, July 24, c.ol, the witness gave some interesting testimony. The evidence of the detectives is that liarney said he had that day signed an ,rdler that would set the Amalgamated to thinking; that he proposed to throw it into the Amalgamated from then on. Just Signed Order. Mr. Shores said that at that time Judge Blarney had just signed an order in the case of MacGinniss vs. the Boston & Mon tana restraining She payment of dividends on Boston & Montana stock held by the Amalgamated, amounting to 98 per cent of all the Boston & Montana stock, and that that order is still in force. It has tied up $a,ooo,ooo in dividends. On the witness stand Judge Harney said he could not remember whether or not he signed this order. Mr. Shores' testimony and the record shows that he did. The witness also swore to the conversa tion between himself and Harney in a 'Thornton hotel bar stall, previously denied t by Judge Harney, in which Harney admit ted that Mrs. Brackett had been hired by the Heinze people to influence him. SOn the resumption of the case in the afternoon 'Mr. Shores denied the testimony Sof Harney about his saying Harney bad ) decided the Minnie Healy case as any lawyer would on the record. ) He also denied having conveyed the idea that he had any influence with the man agement of the Thornton as had been testi Sfled to. r The witness said the meeting with Har 1 ney was not a part of any plan of his; he was ansious to see, however, if Clark could secure a confession from Harney. He told of the magnitude of the case at issue in which his clients were interested and of his natural desire to expose judicial cor ruption if there was any. No Knowledge or Belief. He had no knowledge or belief that money was to be used to secure a confes sion from Judge ilarney. He was surprised at the amount of money mentioned by Charley Clark. He did not believe Clark had that sum of money; in fact, he did not believe there was more than enough money in the crowd to spay for the drinks. Mr. Shores said the repes received from the detectives were so corroborative that he had never had any doubt of the Minnie Healy decision having been se cured through corruption. It was the witness' opinion that Charlie Clark made a mistake in saying he and C(ark had discussed the affidavits. He re called no such discussion with Mr. Clark. Neither did he converse with Clark as to the amount that Harney might want. He never heard of it before. Mr. Breen Objects. Mr. Breen objected to certain questions put to the witness as to the truth of the statements in the Clark deposition about there being a "tacit understanding" that there was to be a monetary consideration in dealing with Harney, on the ground the defense was seeking to impeach one of its witnesses, but the court overruled two objections of that sort. Mr. Shores emphatically denied Clark's testimony that they (the Amalgamated) would pay handsomely for the confession from Harney. So far as he knew there was no such understanding. He was quite positive he had never discussed any monetary matters in that connection with Mr. Clark. In concluding Mr. Shores' direct ex amination Mr. Vail put to the witness two questions covering the allegation against the defendant. "I will ask you, Mr. Shores," said Mr. Vail, "if on August 6, z9ot, or at any other time you wilfully, knowingly or corruptly entered into an agreement or understand ing with C. W. Clark or D'Gay Stivers by which Clark was to offer to E. W. Har ney a valuable consideration for an affi davit that F. A. Heinze had corrupted him in his Minnie Healy decision, or that he would grant a new trial, or resign or leave the state ?" "I did not," replied the attorney with emphasis. No Agreement Made. "Did C. W. Clark with your knowledge or consent in pursuit of an agreement or understanding with a view of influencing Judge Harney to make an affidavit or con fession, offer the sum of $aso,ooo?" "tle did not." This concluded the direct examination and about :3o this afternoon Peter Breen began to cross-examine him. The witness was first asked to relate again the time when he first became inter ested'in the Minnie Healy case and the names of the attorneys who tried the case. The witness was also asked about his visit to New York in the winter of pzoo to90, his first trip after becoming as sociated with the Amalgamated. lie denied ever having said to John For his that if lHeinze did not own the Minnte Healy he did not own a mine on Butte hill. He also denied that while in New York FAMOUS OLD-TIMERS INDORSE MR. SHORES A flattering commentary on A. J. Shores' standing among the members of the bar of Montana has been the readiness with which well-known members of the bench and bar living in other parts of the state have voluntarily laid aside their duties and come to Butte to testify to his pro fesslonal integrity and his splendid repu tation as a citizen of the commonwealth. Some came many miles for this purpose and not a few expressed themselves as considering they were performing a duty they owed to the accused attorney. The Inter Mountain referred briefly last night to some of the judges and attorneys who testified in Mr. Shores' behalf, notably those who came from Helena and Great Falls. Four Well-Known Men. Mention is due to four well-known members of the bar of Missoula, who told Judge McClernan that they considered Mr. Shores' professional reputation the high est. These were former District Judge Frank FORMER IUDGE FRANK WOODY. Woody, Judge W. J. Stephens, Col. T. C. Marshall and Mr. Ranft. Judge Woody is one of the oldest living Montana attorneys. He came to what is now Missoula county about s86o. This makes him one of Montana's oldest living pioneers. ,During his long residence in Missouls Judge Woody has won an enviable reputa tion for sterling honesty and careful at. tentlon to the Interests of the people as district Judge and his clients when not a member of the judiciary. Judge Woody is one of the most inter esting of men when In a reminiscent mood. His fund of early-day stories is a large one. When in the mood the judge proves to be one of the happiest of racounteurs. He filled the position of district judge of the districts embraced in Missoula and Ravalli counties for a number of years and made a good record as a fearless jur ist. Since leaving the bench he has re sumed the practice of the law. Judge W. J. Stephens crowds Judge H. H. Re kers had told him Forbis had said the Minnie Healy ease could not be won. Neither did be ever say to Mr. to gers that if he (Shores) could not secure a new trial of the case he ought not to practice in a justice of the peace court. Syteom of Espoinage. One of the most interesting faets brought out in the testimony of Arthur J. Shores, the accused, yesterday after noon, was that regarding the system of eapoinage established over Judge Harney and Mrs. Brackett in the summer of spot. He told of the facts which led the Amalgamated people to believe Mrs. Brackett was employed by the Heinse interests during the pendency of the Min nie Healy case to infuence Judge Harney in his decision therein, and of the de termination to learn the facts. The Thiel detectives, Waters and Wal ters, whose true names now are known to be Barlow and Wallace, were employed to watch Harney and Mrs. Brackctt. But-and here Is something that has never come out in the case until Mr. Shores gave his testimony-a set of Pinkerton detectives, employed through Mr. Pond, the local manager of the agency, were employed also as a check. Independent of Each Other. The two forces were independent of each other and the Thiel detectives were not aware of the identity of the Pinker tons, though the Pinkertons were aware of the identity of the Thiels. The re sult was a double set of reports which check. The theory of the prosecution has been to discredit the work of the Thiel de tectives. The fact that there were check reports heretofore has been unknown to the prosecution. This fact will tend to strengthen the testimony of the witnesses Barlow and Wallace. Mr. Shores, after detailing his career as a lawyer, dating from his admission to the bar in Minnesota as years ago on his a5th birthday, told of coming to Butte in December, spoo, as counsel for the mining companies allied under the name of the Amalgamated companies, leaving his position as counsel for the Great Northern railway at Great Falls to do so. He said that one of the first things sub mitted to him for an opinion after he took this employment was in relation to the Minnie Healy. As to the Option. At that time the Boston & Montana had an option by which it might acquire Miles Finlen's claim to the mine, which claim was disputed by F. Aug. Heinze. After examining the case, including the evidence of Mr. Heinze given at an In junction proceeding in the matter, Mr. Shores had advised that Heinze had no valid contract for the mine and that the Finlen claim would stand. Following this the Boston & Montana took up the option. Then followed the entrance of the Boston & Montana into the Amalgamated company and the more direct interest of the Amalgamated in the Minnie Healy in consequence. The witness told of the Minnie Healy case coming on for trial and the fact that, while he was not active in the case itself, he took a deep interest in it necessarily as counsel for the Amalgamated. He spoke of the disquietude caused by the intimacy between Mrs. Brackett, known to be in the employ of Heinze's Montana (Continued on Page Five.) More Noted Montana Men Pay Tribute to the Butte Lawyer. Woody in the matter of being a Missoula old-timer. Judge Stephens has lived in the garden spot of Montana since the early '6os, and has figured prominently in every movement having for its object the up building of that section. For many years he enjoyed a large law practice, but of later years he has given up his practice to devote his attention to his private business. He owns consider able Missoula town property, which he has beautified with fruit trees and other shrub bery and believes that Missoula is the coming metropolis of Montana. Judge Stephens cut a prominent figure in the organizations of the home guards which formed in 1877 to defend the com munity against the invasion of the hostile Nea Perces Indians during the famous raid of Chief Joseph. He was one of a party of scouts that intercepted Looking Glass and other Nee Perces leaders near the Lo Lo pass after the battle of the Big Hole and tried to urge the Indians to return to their reser vation.
