THE BUJTTE INTER MOUNTAIN
VOL. XXIII. No. 118. BUTTE, MONTANA, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 5, 1903. PRICE FIVE CENTS. RULE OF NEW POPE IS IN FORCE Brilliant Scene Witnessed at State Reception of vthe Cardinals. LAST RITES SAID Pius X. Arises at Early Hour Not Wishing to Change His Habits. AMERICANS ARE RECEIVED Rome, Aug. 5.-Pope Plus X to day received the members of the American pilgrimage to Rome, led by Lawyer McGowan of New York. This constitutes an event of con siderable signifioance, the American pilgrims being the first to be ad mitted to the presence of the new pontiff. SY ASSOCIATED PRESs. Rome, Aug. S.-Pope Pius X arose at 5:30 o'clock this morning, saying he did not wish to change his habits. He slept last night in the apartment oc cupied by Cardinal Oreglia during the con clave, which is situated ot the second floor of the vatican. No decision has yet been taken concern ing the pontiff's ultimate quarters, but it is said that he desires them to be ex tremely modest. At 7:rs the pope said mass, assisted only by Mgr. Bressan, his conclavist. He after wards took breakfast, which consisted of only coffee, milk and a roll. Sees the Gardens. Then as he stood against the window, from which he caught a glimpse of the gardens of the vatican, the pontiff ex claimed: "My first pleasure, when I can spare a moment, will be to explore the gardens which now confine my little world. I shall miss the outside and my sea." Pope Pius wished to see personally most of the innumerable telegrams of congratu lation received, giving instructions for the answers to those for which he cared most, and looked at the copies, changing here and there a word. Then he prepared for this morning's state reception of the cardinals in the sis tine chapel, which, during the night had been cleared of its temporary furniture, used for the ballots and was assuming its normal aspect. The Third Obedience. The third and last obedience of the sa cred college was consummated this morn ing with the same ceremonial as before, in the sistine chapel, the pope being in his full pontifical robes, and palpably restored in mind and nerves by a night's rest. The cardinals filed before him and kissed his hand and foot, all smiling and appar ently in a perfectly contented frame of mind. They themselves received a hearty em brace from Pius X. The music was di rected by Abbe Perosi, who was the pon tiff's protege, all present remarking how the sistine choir had improved its method since being under the abbe's care. Every corner of the small chapel was filled this morning and those present seemed to forget Pius X in their pleasure in the magnificent harmony of the voices of the choir and the feast of color as they rested their eyes on the pictures be fore them. The ceremony ended about noon. Refuses ta Be Carried. Both going to and coming from the sis tine chapel, when lie passed through the Raphael loggia and the ducal hall, the pope refused to be carried in the sedia gestatoria, which, however, followed him. After taking a few steps, he turned to Mlanager Bisleti and said: "I shall never voluntarily get into that box." A te deum was sung this morning in the eistine chapel in honor of the election of the new pope. All the cardinals were present except Herrero, who is still ill in his cell, al though somewhat better than yesterday. Confirms Several Officials. This morning the pope confirmed In their posts as secret chamberlains Mgrs. Zichy, Scapinelli, Misiatelli and Sanse de Sampere, and confirmed the Marquis of Serlupl as master of the horse, and Mgr. Silli as dean of the grooms. He apointed Mlgr. Gallea, secretary of Latin letters, to replace Mgr. Tarozzi, who Is ill, and also Mgr. Sardi, as secretary for briefs to the princes to replace Mgr. Vol pini, who recently died. The pope has confirmed Cardinal Oreglia as camerlingo. Cardinal Agliardi will probably be secretary of state. The pope, yielding to the pressure exerted by the foreign cardinals, who are anxious to return to their respective countries as soon as possible, has de cided that his coronation shall take place next Sunday. Receives Prince Massino. Pope Pius today received Prince Mas sino, the head of the papal section of the Roman aristocracy, who was accompanied by his daughter-in-law, Princess Beatrice, the daughter of Don Carlos. The pope seemed especially glad to see her, saying: "We are from the same town. Your father was my friend and I have not for gotten his amiability In coming to see me off at the station for the conclave, little Imagining that I should never re turn to my land again. I hope your royal father will soon come to our court." A few anecdotes show what sort of a ptan Plus X Is. His ppsition as patriarch (Continued on Page Nine.)

S.-The suspension of the firm of Sharp & Bryan was announced on the stock exchange today. Charles S. Bryan of the suspended firm was elected a menmber of the governing committee of the exchange at the last elec. tion. The firm was organized July 2, 1891, the individual members being W. \V.

LEADERS HOLD CONFERENCE Bryan and Other Men of Note Gather in Urbana, Ohio, to Talk Over Prospects. BY ASSOCIAIED IRESS. L'rlana, Ohio, Aug. 5.-W 3. Bryan was the attraction here at the Chautauqua assembly today. The convention of Champagne county tc nominate a ticket and select delegates to the convention at Columbus two weeks hence was also held today and Itryan's presence was made the occasion for a con ference of leaders. It has been announced as the occasion for making the Johnson program for the state convention, :ut the invitations of the committee were not limited to any faction. Among those accepting invitations were Mayor Johnson of Cleveland, John L.. Zim merman of Sprinlttield and former Con gressmatn I.entz of Colut11tbus.

It is said former Congressman Lentz will present Johnson's name to the con venltion for governor. and if Johnson is nominated Lentz will be indorsed for senator. ELUSIVE DIME SAVES LIVES OF TWO MEN SPECIAL TO TILE INTER MOUNTAIN. Geat Falls, Aug. S.--Wallace P. Coburn and C. P. Stewart owe their lives to the loss of a dime. Had they not arisen from their seats in a Montana Central car last night, they would have been plowed to bits by the Great Northern flyer, which crashed into the rear end of their car a minute after. Coburn, who is known as the cowboy poet, and Stewart were sitting in the last seat in the Montana Central train wrecked near Havre last night. Stewart had just bought some candy of the news-butcher and pulled out a handful of silver to pay for it. A dime slipped between his fingers and fell to the floor. It began to roll. Stewart gave chase. The elusive coin kept edge up and rolled almost the entire length of the aisle and then disappeared under a seat. Coburn went to the aid of his friend and was stooping to look under the seat with a lighted match when, glancing out of the rear door, he saw the express corn ing at full speed. He sezled Stewart and pointed to the train. The two ran to the front door and braced themselves against it. A sec ond later the shock came. Both were and extreme shrinkage in the market value of the securities of the tinn. "The liabilities, mostly secured, are about $5,ooo,ooo. The value of assets, comprising almost exclusively stock ex change securities to the amount of several million dollars, is dependent on market conditions. "Most of the creditors, recognizing that present conditions are to be short-lived, are very fairly and wisely withholding their securities from sale." An unofficial statement was made to the effect that the firm had no open contracts in the market and that at today's prices there was still a fair margin of cask on their loans. It was arranged that if prices did not decline further the firm would be able to liquidate its assets on a satisfac tory basis. Sharp & Bryan were prominent in opera tions on the curb. They were specialists in American Bridge, Northern Securities and Seaboard securities. The firm offered large blocks of Seaboard shares for sale on the curbl yesterday. The greater part of Sharp & Bryan's obligations on the stock exchange were liquidated yesterday and several banks and trust companies threw out their loans. In fact, the greater part of yesterday's liqui dation on the exchange was for Sharp & Itryan's account.
