THE BUTTE INTER MOUNTAIN
VOL. XXIII. No. 120. BUTTE, MONTANA, FRIDAY, AUGUST 7, 1903. PRICE FIVE CENTS. TURKISH TROOPS CHASE REVOLUTIONIST HEADS Bulgarian Residents in the Many Villages Flee to the Mountains. SULTAN'S TROUBLES Use of Irregular Soldiers in Suppressing Revolt Practically Barred. BY ASSOCIATED PRESS, Constantinople, Aug. 7.--Ne's received here as to the extent of the Bulgarian revo lutionary movement in the villayet of Monastir Is conflicting. In consular dispatches from Monastir, which were received this morning, the opinion is expressed that the insurrection broke out a fortnight . earlier than its chiefs intended and before the bands were In readiness, presumably because the lead ers were disconcerted by the active pre ventive measures adopted by the authori lies. Flee to the Mountains. The Buigarian inhabitants of a number of villages have fled to the mountains for refuge. The railways have asked that the tro6ps gua'ding the lines be quadrupled, but this would entail the employment of ao,ooo soldiers, and in view of the impoverished treasury the government will find it diffi cult to comply with the request. In spite of reports to the contrary, it is confidently believed in well-informed quar ters that the porte, in confromity with its formal declarations, will employ only reg ular troops to suppress the insurrection, as it Is well aware it is important for Turkey to avoid excess and such as certainly would be the outcome of the employment of the undiciplined Albanians or other ir regular soldiers. The diplomats here entertain no doubt that the porte will continue its present policy of fighting the bands with regulars. Of the eight battalions of infantry dis patched to .Monastir four will remain at ,lonastir, three will occupy the heights of Peristoy, to the westward of Monastir, and one will go to Florin, a town of I.Ioo inhabitants, 17 miles southwest of Mon astir. The porte has sent categorical inatruc SUPPRESSING THE INSURRECTION TURKISH TROOPS HUNTING FUGITIVES IN TILE MACEDONIA HILLS.' tions to the valis of the Armenian prov inces of Asia Minor, holding them person ally responsible for any Kurdish excesses and ordering vigorous measures to be taken to prevent fighting. The British vice consul at Bitlis has been ordered to proceed to Mush, 8o miles south of Erzeroum, where the Armenian massacres by the Kurds and the Turks oc curred in 1894, to investigate the situation there. Excitement Dying Out. A consular dispatch from Erzeroum re ceived here this morning says the excite ment in that atitrict Is dying out, uut trnd the vali of Ezeroum advises that the 6oo armed Hutchakists from Russian territory have compelled the Armenians in the vil. lages of Sassun Vilayet (also the scene of Armenian massacres in 189.1), to take refuge in the mountains. The vail has sent fout hattalions of troops against lutchakists who ',ecaped to the mountains. The porte has communicated this infor mation to the Russian embassy, calling attention to the fact that the yajds came fronm Russian te rritory. CLEY FOUND TO DYNAMITE USERS Northern Pacific Detectives Come to Butte to Pur sue the Search. MEN ARE IN HIDING Believed Explosive Used Was Purchased in This City.

The pope said he should like to have had the cardinal remain in Rome for some time in order that he might become thor oughly acquainted with all qu(estions called up by the United States, but his holiness did not insist, being aware, he said, of the cardinal's delicate state of health and his sulTering front hot weather.

At the conclusion of the ceremony the president and Ambassador Von Stern berg, as old friends, chatted some time. The ambassador will be the unofficial guest of the president tomorrow. It was stated today that the reception by the prU ident of the German ambassador at Sagamnore hill is not to be regarded as a precedent, although it is the first time in the history of the country that an ambas. sador has presented his credentials to the. president outside of Washington. Baron Von Sternberg was received be cause the circumstances called his coming to the United States were exceptional in a sense. Then, too, he is a long-time per. sonal friend of the president.
