BY MR. A. J. SHORES Accused Man Clearly Ex plains Alleged Tender Made to Harney. (Continued from Page Two.) Ore Purchasing company, and Judge Har mey. Then he described his brst knowledge of the correspondence between the two which had been intercepted without his knowledge. Interoeption of Letters. He said that he had nothing to do with the interception of the letters until after the "Dearie" letter had been shown to him, when his responsibility for the subsequent interceptions consisted in interposing no objection to the work being done. He told of the system of espoinage then established, saying he had nothing to do with the employment of the detectives, but that when the double reports began to come in dalily they were submitted to him. He described, as detailed in the forego ing, the system of check reports insti tuted. Mr. Shores narrated the rendering of the decision,- adverse to the Boston & Montana, on June s8,891p, by Judge Har ney and of the beginning of efforts to se cure a new trial, based chiefly on the mis conduct of the judge. He said at that time the evidence of the judge's misconduct was not nearly so strong as it subsequently became, and that while misconduct was pleaded in the appli cation for a new trial it was still in doubt as to whether the Boston & Montana would seriously proceed to prove the charges, though it was considered that the intercepted correspondence was sufficient to justify the motion. The Necessary Information. "With the date we had." he said, "it was believed that if Brackett and Harney could be put on the stand and compelled to testify all the information necessary to prove the misconduct could be secured." He then detailed the belief that existed that the Boston & Montana could secure the depositions of the two before a notary and the consequent belief that affidavits were not necessary. He went east at this time, and while he was away the attempt was made to secure these depositions, the attempt failing in the courts. At this time Mr. Shores had no knowl edge of what is now known as the "Him ecey" telegram. Was Not There. Speaking of the statement that has been made by Harney that he did not believe Shores was responsible or voted for the beginning of the proceedings before the notary to secure the depositions, the wit ness said: "I did not vote against it for the rea son that I was not here. If I had been here I probably would have agreed with my associates, for the evidence had ac cumulated to justify, the course from a practical standpoint. "From a moral standpoint I never had any doth-t as to our being justified in as suming irregularity on the part of Judge Harney in the Minnie Healy case." The witness returned to Butte July 14, or a few days prior thereto. Proceedings Before Notary. He detailed at this point the proceed ings before Notary Galbraith and of the refusal of Harney and Mrs. Brackett to testify, their being committed for con tempt and their subsequent release on habeas corpus proceedings, which pro ceedings resulted in the complete discharge of the two, August 5. While the proceedings were pending, he said, he learned of the incident of Eugene Carroll conveying to Mr. Scallon the Jesse Roote proposition to compromise the matter and avoid the filing of affida vit4 on Judge Harney granting a new trial and of Mr. Scallon refusing to do any trading in the matter. Mr. Shores then went on to tell of Roote coming to him a day or two later with the same proposition. He made it plain that Roote had done RECKLESS METHODS OF F. AUG. HEINZE (Continued from P'age One.) and for the Amalgamated Copper company and the corporations in which it owns a majority of the shares of capital stock, and that such transactions are of a financlal nature.

MclIAT'TON & COTTER, Attorneys for Respondents. To the above-named appellants and to Forlis & Evans, T'. J. Walsh and A. J. Shores, his attorneys: You are hereby notified that the above and foregoing ' mution will be presented to the above entitled court, at the opening thereof, on the a4th day of July, igoj. T'OOLE & BACH, McHIATTON & CO)TT'EJ, Attorneys for Respondentt. John D. Ryan Talks. John D. Ryan, president of the Daly Bank & Trust company, in an iaterview with the Inter Mountain this afternoon, said: "I have read hurriedly the affidavit of F. Augustus Heinse, made in the matter of Le application to the supreme court ask. so of his own volition and not at th'e in stance of the witness. Bribing of Harney. He also laid stress on the fact that Roote had expressed to him the firm be lief that Harney had been bribed by Heinse, but that Roote said he (Roote) had obtained his information to this ef fect in such a way that he could not reveal its source. "Mr. Roote did not say that Harney had authorized him to make the proposition," said he. "I told him that we did not pro pose to buy a new trial. "I told him further that Harney had no authority to do this, that he could not grant a new trial except on a motion based on grounds. I told him that to say the least the proposition was imprac ticable." Roote went on to say that Harney was in a had state of fright and that, if given assurance that he would not be prose cuted, would make a confession. He threw this out as a suggestion, apparently. Knew Harney Was Guilty. "At this time I was advised that Charley Clark had seen Mr. Scallon and said he knew that Harney was guilty, that Harney was afraid of criminal prosecution and that he (Clark) believed that a confession might be obtained from Harney as to the facts if assured that he would not be prosecuted. "I was further informed that Mr. Scal Ion had told Clark that he could give no assurance in that line, that he couldn't compound a felony, that we were not in terested in Judge Ilarney, that we had no malice against him, but that what would be of value to us would le information to prove the corruption. "My impression is that Clark made the call to get assurances that there would be no criminal prosecution to take to Ilarney in order to obtain a confession from him." oees Charley Clark. Mr. Shores spoke of seeing Charley Clark about the offices several times, but had no recollection of Clark ever having come to see him. He recalled once, how ever, that Clark in going out of the office had remarked to him that Harney had got $6o,ooo for the decision in the Minnie Healy case. The witness went on to say that he, after a few days had lapsed, called Mr. Scallon's attention to the fact that if a confession was to be obtained from Har ney, in the fear of criminal prosecution, something would beat be done, as the time for perfecting the motion for a new trial was short. Mr. Scallon then had attempted to see Clark, but had been unable to do so. "What motive did you understand Clark had in the matter?" "It was on account of political differ ences between Clark's father and Heinze. The motive was purely a Clark one." "Was there more than one conversa tion between Roote and yourself in your office ?" More Than One. "There was more than one, but I cannot recall when they were or what was said. I know he was in my office several times." Mr. Shores detailed the story of his visit to Judge Harney's rooms on August t or a to get an extension of time for filing the affidavits and he explained that he had done this because it had been im possible to find the judge in court or any where else. He found the judge recovering from the effects of too much liquor. The judge had taken the matter under advisement. The meeting, he said, was friendly, though the mood of Harney towards him was variable. In this connection he told of an instance in the Thornton hotel bar one day before this when Ilarney was partly intoxicated and had three times made a threatening demonstration towards him,. but had re treated without doing anything. He detailed another instance where Har ney had approached him when he sat with Senator Tomt Cullen in a hotel bar stall. "As he approached," said the witness, "I asked himt to take a drinlk. For a mo ment I didn't know whether he was going to strike or take the drink-but he took the drink." These things, the witness said, created no irritation in his mind against lHarney. ing that the certificate of deposit of the Daly Bank & Trust company of IButte, now in the hands of the clerk of that court, bIe cashed and the money be distrih uted among the other five banks of Butte, or such of them as the court may see fit. "Of course this bank has no desire what. ever to 'hold the money represented by that certificate of deposit if the supreme court deems it advisable to cash it. "THE BANK WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1882 AND HAS BEEN OPEN EVER SINCE THAT TIME AND NO DE POSITOR OF THE BANK HAS EVER PRESENTED 4HIS CHECK OR CERTIFI CATE FOR ANY MONEY ON DEPOSIT IN THE INSTITUTION WITHOUT IT HAVING BEEN HONORED IMME DIATELY. "The bank has never asked nor taken one minute's time in making payment of any deposit. It is my belief that it will necvcr do so. Ready and 'Willing. "We are entirely ready and willing to pay on demand any obligation of this bank. "The attack on the solvency of the in stitution is entirely unwarranted of course and whether it was made simply out of enmity because a number of the subsidiary corporations of the Amalgamated company are doing business with us and because we are friendly to that institution, or that whether some of the banks named in Mr. Heinse's application, in which Mr. Heinse is directly or indirectly interested, are in need of the money that they might se cure by having the deposit divided up, I am unable to say. Never Guaranteed a Price. "This bank has never guaranteed a price for Amalgamated or any other stock with one exception, that being in the case of the purchase 'by the Butte Miners' union of soo shares of Analgamlated, when the bank did give the Miners' union its guarantee that it would purchase the stock at any time after one year from the date of the purchase at the price paid by the union, namely $too a share. "On this guarantee the bank was amply aseered by the persone guarantee ot Mr. H. H. Rogers, which I do not think Mr. Helase or anyone else will question. Obligations of Bank. "As to the obligations of the bank in the matter of bonds and sureties furnished on undertakings and appeals, there was but one direct guarantee made by the bank and that in the case of the Silver King against the Plymouth Mining Co. and on that guarantee the bank was se cured by Janmes A. Murray, Mrs. Daly and the Daly estate. "The bank has obligated itself on no other bonds of any sise except in the ease of the Boston & Moa.tana Mining company and the Anaconda Copper Mining Co., on which satisfactory guarantees were given to the bank. "*As regards the attack on the Datly estate, I will say that I am more or less familiar with the business of the estate and of Mrs. Daly personally, although it is not under my direct charge. I will say that Mr. Heinse's statements regarding the losses sustained by the I)aly estate are entirely unfounded and without any sea son. "I am perhaps as familiar with the business of the estate as any one out side of the manager of the estate him self and it is my belief that the Daly estate and Mrs. Only are better off financialll than they were at the time of Mr. Daly's death. "In conclusion I would repeat that any depositor of the Daly Hank & Trust com pany, or any of its associate hbaks, who wants his money has only to present his check or certificate for the amount lie has on deposit and he will bie paid what is coming to him without the hank 4ebng put to the necessity of taking any time or asking any favors." Views of A. J. Oavis. In discussing the matter this afternoon Andrew J. Davis, president of the First National bank, said: "I am greatly surprised to hear that the solvency of the Daly Bank & Trust Co. has been questioned by anyone. I have been intimately acquainted with the management of the present institu tion and its predecessor for many years and believe the affairs of the bank are in the hands of conservative and conscientious business men. We consider both the bank and the Daly estate sol vent beyond all question." A. J. Johnston's Statement. Alexander J. Johnston, cashier of the banking house of W. A. Clark & Bro., in behalf of his institution, made the follow ing statement: "There can he no qluestion as to the solvency of the Daly Bank & Trust com pany. It is entirely solvent and in good condition and an attack on its solvency is not warranted by the facts. "Its certified check for $ia.sooo is per fectly good and would be so considered anywhere in Montana. "There is not a doubt in the minds of the business people of Butte as to the en tire solvency of both the bank and the Daly estate." REAL BLOODHOUND Still Remains a Mystery to Experts Who Have Studied Instinot. The use of what are called bloodhounds in the Southern part of the United States for catching animals is a common prac tice. For over 50 years dogs have been trained in the South for this purpose. Be fore the Civil war nearly all of the larger plantations had one or more pure blood hounds, trained to pursue runaway slaves. In some cases the plantation owners would club together and purchase a pack, each having the use of it when needed to catch the fleeing negro. In those days some white men in the South made it a business to train dogs especially for the purpose, and accom panied them when they were needed for a "chase," as it was termed. Very few were ever used for bird or animal hunt ing. as it affected their scent for man. The planters fond of hunting kept other breeds of dogs almost entirely for sport. Since the war tl:e value of the hound is so well known in following escaped criminals that today the half-breeds are almost as numerous as the others were .) years ago, although many were killed by the Union soldiers and the Itegroes themselves during the war. I)og fanciers say that there are probably not as pure blooded dogs of this breed in the United States at present. The first of the kind came fromus the North of England, near the Scotch boundary line. \Vhen not in service they are often kept about the house, more as pets, probably because of their courage and docility, for the real bloodhound is anything but the savage and vicious brute depicted by artists and de scribed by novelists in his ordinary condi. tion. Wr'hen not aroused he is as gentle and as tractable as a lapdog. l.et hitm e pro voked, however, and he will attack nan or beast with a ferocity which is equaled by lno other breed of canines. lie never gives up as long as life lasts, and it is death to either himself or the object of his attack. The savage side of the dog is aroused by resistance, and he will seldom bite any one who does not offer it unless influenced by the scent of blood. This trait is proved by numerous illus trations where the animal has been used in the Southern States. The iegroes in the slave days were well aware of it, and frequently, when running down. a "darky," would throw himself at full length upon the ground and remain mnotionless. The dogs, coming up, would stand around the fugitive. Many a runaway, however, met his death in endeavoring to strangle the dogs or beat them off with a/'club. Even to this day the odor by which the dog follows a man is a subject of discus sion among the veteran trainers. Some argue that it comes from the soles of the feet and some say it is the natural odor of the body. Others claim, however, that the leather is especially adhesive and attempt to prove this theory by showing that where a fugitive has taken off his shoes the dogs have frequently been delayed considerably in tracing. As under such conditions the man is liable to bruise his feet and as his blood offers the best scent it is merely choosing the worse of two evils in most instances to follow this plan.-San Fran. cisco Chronicle.

HEINZE MEN FIGHT DAMAGING EVIDENCE Important Testimony in the Nipper Case, Given by Mining Engineer, Arouses Antagonismi . fl- de'endnts' fourth expert witness, lilr F. Word, finished his evidence at the Nl,laer trial today, and it was expect ed t:% tlaftth and final witness, whose time olt Ift. stand has not been limited, woulI take the witness stand before court ad Jour, I for the day. During the interim between the close of Mr. \\ord's testimony and the beginning of tha.t of the last expert Engineer Robert A. tlc \rthur, a witness of the unqualified clasa gave evidence about the workings in tll, Imine, particularly the closed places. Evidence Is Interesting. An interesting piece of evidence fur nishe I by Mr. McArthur was to the effect thIt .s map which he testified had been given him by a mnliing engineer ntained Turnt.a, at the time the latter was working for thIt lMontaa I)re Purchasing company, show. I that a part of the Nipper apex drift Ihad., hern run on a southlleat course for a listance, thus following the Bhle X vein. The introdluction of this evidence was bitterly opposed by Judge Mcllatton for the lieltne Interests. It importanee will be understood whent it is remembe,red that the defendants' wit nesses have testified that the vein in the Nipper is the Blue vein and that it runs southeast and northwest across all the claims involved in the dispute, while thet witna'es.s for the Hleinre people have testi fled that tile vein is the Nipper apex vein and runls eiast and west. Plan of the Nipper. The map mentioned is a plai map of the Nilpper claim, and according to the particu.lar working on it testified to by Mr. McArthur. the Ilrinze people's miners followed the blue vein for a while before the manasOgers discovered what they were doing, alnd then they were halted andl re qt rel to take an east and west courrse a in, which course is necessary to bear out the lleinte contention in the case. Cross-Examination Continued. Mr. \Vord, the fourth expert for the de fendants, was on the stand this morning whean ,ourt opened, and was subjected to, a continuance of cross-examination by Judge McHalton for the plaintiffs. "What depth below the surfacels the Blue X drift at the Little Mina shaft?" the lawyer asked. "Onte hundred feet," the witness replied. "Wh'llat is it at the Oden shaft?" "About 14o feet." "You say quartz predominates as tlhe vein tilling of the Blue X vein?" '"Is the veina affected lay fault move ment ?" "Yes: it is broken." "Is vein quartz hlarder than granlite?" "Yes; but I've seen very hard granite. There is quartz in the granite, and one is no harder than the other." "When quarts predominates in a vein you generally have a quartz outcrop, don't you ?" "Yes." "Do you have a quartz outcrop in the Nipper or ()dell claims ?" Wash Covers Crop. "I never saw any. T'he wash covers tile outcrop here."

".Mr. Word, what is the general effect of a falt fissure on mineral deposition if it cross.s a vein, at the point of crossing?" the lawyer asked. "Ita eTffect is to drag the ore along the fault.

"I object to this exanmtlatimon as incom petent. We have enough veins in the case now," Mr. Kelley for the defendants said. "We'll put a few umore ill," Judge Mc IIstton replied. Overruled by the Court. The court overruled thie objectiol and an exception was allowed. The witrness answered the lquetiont by saying that the vein was mostly quartz. "Any aplite ?" the lalwyer asked. "I didn't see any." the witness repliedl. "You haven't discnvered any aplite inl the little Minn outside ot the surface cuts and the shaft ?"
