THE BUTTE- INTER MOUNTAIN
VOL. XXIII. No. 128. BUTTE, MONTANA, MONDAY, AUGUST 17, 1903. PRICE FIVE CENTS. PAT RODGERS SEENIN THE CITY Sheriff's Office Gets Word That Fugitive Has Not Departed. SEARCH IS STILL OH Much Speculation as to What Quinn Will Do When He Returns. "Rodgers was seen in town last night." This statement was made in the sher iff's office today by Under Sheriff Mc Garvey, and it referred to Pat Rodgers, one of the three former prisoners who are so energetically and vigilantly sought by the sheriff's officers, the regular deputies and special deputies. Felker was not seen In town last night by anybody who has taken the trouble to report the fact. That he was in town and was seen by more discreet people who did not mention the fact is not for an in stant doubted in many quarters. Albert Ginsberg Talks. Albert Ginsberg, who offered to return Felker to jail, insists that Felker would be in jail now if his offer had been accepted by the under sheriff. The under sheriff says there was noth Ing in Ginsberg's talk, and that there will be no attention paid to the latter's offer. No other clews had been found by the officials this morning. The search is still going on, and every clew is followed with tenacity. Nothing has been heard lately about the plan to search the hills north of here with bloodhounds from the state prison, with the aid of bloody overalls shed by Lennox, the third unrecaptured man, and it is understood the idea has been aban doned. The $,oo reward for each of the fugl tives still stands,. Concerning Sheriff Quinn. Where is Sheriff Quinn? Does he know what is happening at the county jail during his absence? When is he coming back? These are questions that have been asked by a number of persons lately. The recent jailbreak and the death of Frank Ortoff, one of the escapes who was recap tured will, it is believed, interest him ex ceedingly, and they may be the means of hastening his return home. Quinn is on the ocean. That is the news given out at the sheriff's office con cerning him. He is on the ocean, bound for Nome, where there was a man wanted here on a charge of embezzlement at the time he set out from Butte. "When will the sheriff be back?" was asked of Under Sheriff McGarvey this morning. "I don't know," was the reply. "He is on the ocean; on his way to Nome." N1o Word Received. The under sheriff said no communica tion had been had with Quinn by the men in his office concerning the jailbreak and the highwayman's demise, although let ters had been received from the sheriff on other subjects, letters rwritten prior to the events named. When Sheriff Quinn left Butte the pro gram was that he would be gone perhaps as days, but it was thought the time might be extended to two months by the exigen cies of the trip he was to take. He left here about two or three weeks ago, and therefore it will be some time before he will return. Rodgers Writes Letter. The Inter Mountain is in receipt of a letter from Pat Rodgers, one of the es caped prisoners, in which he says he wishes to meet City Detective Jerry Murphy face to face. Detective Murphy said today that if Rodgers or his friends would fix a place of meeting he would go out and bring in the jailbreaker. Suicide Verdict Is Returned. The Ortoff inquest was held Saturday night at Sherman & Reed's undertaking rooms. The jury returned a verdict of suicide. Under Sheriff McGarvey, Deputy Wy man, the three jailers, Harrington, Baldl sero and Dolan, and Louis Gosslin, a pris oner, were the witnesses. Coroner Egan asked each of these if he had ever seen the prisoner abused. None bad. The jury was closeted about five min utes, when a verdict that the deceased had hanged himself Friday, August I4, was brought in. Public to Select. Coroner Egan requests the public to se lect two doctors to hold an autopsy on the body of the late Frank OrtofT this evening.

SHIPS OF WAR GREET THE EYE TWENTY-ONE FIGHTfNG VESSELS OF THE AMERICAN NAVY DRAW UP IN LINE. PRESIDENT BEGINS A REVIEW Magnifioent Speotacle Is Presented When Cannon Thunder a a Salute. BY ASSOCIATED PRESS. Oyster Bay, Aug. sy.-Twenty-one war ships drawn up in four parallel columns a mile long, and including some of the best fighting ships of the United States navy, resting on the glassy surface of Long Island sound, composed the picture which lay spread out before President Roosevelt when he stepped out on the veranda of his home at Sagamore Hill early this morning. Their brasswork, shining under the slanting rays of the morning sun, gave evidence that every ship was spick and span for this, the first naval review at the nation's summer capital, and probably the first ever held for the express purpose of presidential honor. All Kinds of Boats. Commanded by Rear Admiral Barker and three other officers of similar naval rank, the fleet, comprising two squadrons each of two divisions, besides a flotilla of torpedo boat destroyers, included a repre sentative of nearly every type of fighting craft from the ponderous Illinois to the lean destroyers. Two parallel columns of battleships and cruisers, headed by the Kearsarge, Rear Admiral Barker's flagship, flanked by files of destroyers, composing the North Atlan tic fleet, covered the placid sound for two miles off shore from picturesque Lloyds Neck and, blockading the mouth of Oyster Bay, presented a splendid marine specta cle, abundantly suggestive of America's sea power. Clustered in the mouth of the bay rested the president's yacht, Mayflower; Secre tary Moody's official craft, the Dolphin, and Sir Thomas Lipton's steam yacht Erin, surrounded by a fleet of steam and sailing yachts gathered to witness the im posing ceremony when the president and the fleet officially exchanged greetings. Fairer weather for the review could not have been asked. When the president boarded the Mayflower there was hardly a ripple that wrinkled the surface of the water. The Mayflower lay in the mouth of Oyster Bay. Nearby was the Dolphin, with Secretary Moody and Admiral Dewey on board. Before the president arrived Secretary Moody, Admiral Dewey, Rear Admiral Taylor, chief of the bureau of navigation; Rear Admiral Rodgers, commander of the New York navy yard; Captain Brownson, commandant of the naval academy; Gen eral Chaflee, Sir Thomas Lipton, Colonel Sharman-Crawford of the Royal Ulster Yacht club, C. Oliver Iselin, W. Butler Duncan, Woodbury Kane and Commodore Frederick C. Bourne of the New York Yacht club were taken on board the May flower. First Salute Is Fired. As the president stepped on the decks of the Mayflower her guns spoke the first salute of the morning. Leaving her anchorage, the Dolphin passed the May flower, saluting as she went by. Then the Mayflower steamed down the bay, followed by the president's yacht Sylph, having guests of the president on board. Slowly the president's flagship moved out into the Sound where the battleships and cruisers lay in two parallel lines lengthwise of the Sound with a column of destroyers flanking each line of larger ships. The right column was composed of two divisions, the first consisting of the Kear sarge, Illinois and Alabama, under com mand of Rear Admiral Barker; the second comprising the Texas, Baltimore and Chi cago, commanded by Rear Admiral Sands. The left column included Rear Admiral Coghlan's flagship, the Olympia and the cruiser Topeka, comprising the first division, and the Yankee, Prairie, Panther and Dolphin the second division, Rear Admiral Wise commanding. Flanking the first column and between it and the Long Island shore was the first division of the destroyer flotilla, the Decatur, Bainbridge, Barry, Dale and Chauncy under command of Lieutenant L. H. Chandler. Lying out side of all the remainder of the fleet was a flanking column of destroyers, including the Truxton, Worden, Whipple, Stewart and Laurence,.commanded by Lieutenant R. K. Benham. Great Steam Yachts. Surrounding them was a flotilla of steam craft of all descriptions, numbering a hun dred vessels and including splendid great steam yachts. A string of code signals fluttered in the rigging of the Dolphin, an answering string hung limply from the Kearsarge's yard and many flags wig wagged from ship to ship of the big fleet. With the president's flag flying from the main truck the Mayflower steamed slowly off to the east end of the right column, made a sweeping curve and moved down through the lane between the first column of battleships and cruisers and the first column of destroyers. Lines of white-clad sailors manned the rails, superstructures, fighting' tops and yards of the white fleet and dotted the rails of the dark-hulled destroyers. A so inch gun in the Kearsarge's secondary battery spurted a little flash of flame and smoke and the succession of presidential salutes began. Launches put off fromn the warships and scurried over to the Mayflower, conveying the commanders and flag officers to pay their realspects to the president. This formality completed, the president boarded the Mayflower's launch and was conveyed to the Kearsarge to return the official call. Twenty-one guns fromt her secondary battery spoke an official wel come and an equal number at parting. In turn he visited each of the battle ships and cruisers, the ceremony being re peated in each case. GENERALLY FAIR Washington, Aug. 17.--Weather in dications- Generally fair tonight and Tuesday. G. A. R. VETERANS CAPTURE FRISCO WEARERS OF THE BLUE FILL THE STREETS OF THE WESTERN COAST METROPOLIS. 20,000 MEN ARE PRESENT Denver Boomers Working Hard to Secure the Next Meeting, While Others Are Not idle. SY ASSOCIATED PRESS. San Francisco, Aug. 17.-The Grand Army of the Republic today has virtual possession of San Francisco. 'the streets are thronged with veterans, the hotel lobbies are crowded to suffoca tion and the sidewalks are almost impass able. It is estimated that about ao,ooo old soldiers have come to attend their national encampment, which promises to be one of the most successful in the history of the organization. The weather is perfect, the fog having lifted to the great delight of all Call fornians, who can now boast without re serve of the "glorious climate." Interest Is Added. The arrival of General Miles, who is still being urged by many of his friends for the position of commander-in-chief, has added considerable interest to the occa sion. The general, however, still declares he is not a candidate, and reiterates his pre vious statement that he will not oppose the election of General Black. The choice of a next meeting place for the encampment promises to be quite a struggle. So far the Denver boomers seem to be most in evidence, but the friends of other cities are not idle. The Illinois delegation held its first formal meeting this morning. The affairs of the encampment were dis cussed and It was resolved to act as a unit, if possible, on all matters which may be in dispute. Parades the Streets. The Denver drum corps paraded through the principal streets today and attracted much attention. Pennsylvania has sent a strong delegation and Ohio is spendidly represented. In fact, the badge of almost every state and territory in the union may be seen on the streets, those included in the "Solid South" not excepted. Perfect system is being maintained by the reception committees and strangers are finding themselves among friends, all their wants being quickly provided for. There will be only informal meetings today, but tonight receptions will be held by all the local posts. MANY GOING TO CONGRESS Trans-Mississippi Commercial Meeting in Seattle Attracts Butte Men. The railroads report a larger sale than anticipated of tickets for Seattle, Port land and Tacoma on account of the rates granted for the excursion made for the Trans-Mississippi Commercial congress which meets in Seattle this week. About So people availed themselves of the rate from this city. Tickets were on sale August :4, 35 and :6. The rate made was considered a rea sonable one as was evidenced by the lib eral patronage the excursion received. Of course, while all who went from Mon tana will not take part in the proceedings of the Trans-Mississippi congress, some will attend the meeting of that body. P. J. Brophy of Butte, who was ap pointed a delegate to the congress by Governor Toole, went to Seattle last night. The congress is composed of men promi nent in the business world of their re spective communities. Politics are carefully shunned, an en deavor always being made to refrain from any political action. Seattle has made extensive preparations for the entertainment of the visitors, while the program of addresses to be delivered includes many notable names.
