THE BUTTE INTER MOUNTAIN
VOL. XXIII. No. 132. BUTTE, MONTANA, ORIDAY, AUGUST 21, 1903. PRICE FIVE CENTS. PAY A VISIT TO U. S. SHIP YARDS Delegates to Commercial Congress See the Sights. THEY TALK ALASKA Convention in Seattle Will Come to an End This Afternoon. London, Aug. a2.-Diplomats point out that the scheme for, a settlement of the Macedonian question outlined by the Inde pendence Belgie yesterday could not be ap proved by the powers, as it is evident Turkey would never submit to a peaceful ocupation of the Bosphorus and the Dar danelles. A Turkish official said this could only be done after fighting. The Turkis ambassador called at the foreign office today to make inquiry regard ing the report that It was the Intention of the powers to make a joint naval demon stration In Turkish waters and to enter a protest if anything was contemplated. The foreign office officials made it clear to him that Great Britain has taken no action of this character, and it appears as if It may also refrain from carrying out her decision to dispatch warships to Turkey, as the Italian embassy says no re port of their departure has yet been re ceived. This is taken by the embassy to indicate that there have been developments making the step Inadvisable or unnecessary at the present moment, perhaps due to the Turkish acceptance of the Russian de mands, which was confirmed at the Turk ish embassy. The negotiations respecting Macedonia are conducted on the continent, Foreign Secretary Lansdowne and most of the am bassadors being away from London. The Turkish ambassador leaves London tomorrow for the country where he will remain for several days. SERVE PAPERS ON WATSEKA -COMPANY ROCHESTER CONCERN ATTACHED FOR $119,000 BY F. A. HEINZE AND G. ROBINSON. aPECAL TO THE INTER MOUNTAIN. Virginia City, Aug. as.-Sheriff Hill left this afternoon for Rochester to at tach the property of the Watseka Gold Mining company for $a:9,ooo. Proceed ings were instituted by F. Augustus Heine and George Robinson of Butte. These men hold promissory notes against the copapany for the amount named. It is believed here that the Watseka mill will be closed and operations there temporarily retarded, as the attachment is heavy. A. W. McCune, the Salt Lake million aire, is backing the Watseka company.

The exact nature of the transaction be tween Heinz. and Robinson and the Wat seka company is not known. KILLED BY SMALL GOLF BALL Little Girl Who Is Hit on the Head Dics in Hospital.

MULLINS OF IDAHO Clerk of Court Wants Fees Paid at Once or Ouster Proceedings Against the Aldermen Dropped. Mayor Patrick Mullins of Idaho is about to find himself with more troubles on his hands. The trouble threatens to spring out of the suits he brought in the district court two or three weeks ago against eight aldermen of Butte. Mayor Mullins, the Idaho land reclaimer, brought suit in the name of the city of Butte to oust from office Aldermen Sieben aler, Ryan, Lally, Gallagher and Doull on the ground that they were not qualified to hold their offices from the standpoint of citizenship in Butte. It was this suit that called attention to the status of the mayor himself, it having acted as a boomerang. It now promises to add something more to his worries. The Other Suit. The other suit is that brought by the man from Idaho against Aldermen Heaney, Bacheler and Gleason to recover parts of back salary paid them. In this particular of the mayor's his tory, already made and to be made, it is the clerk of the district court, in which the aldermanic suits were filed, who is after the chief executive of the city of Butte, also of Blackfoot, Idaho. There were court fees in the cases against the eight aldermen, as in all other cases filed in the court, and they have not been paid. They are due from Mayor Mullins, and the clerk of the court wants the money. Operates as Abandonment. Therefore this morning Attorney Rob ert McBride, representing the clerk of the court, was in Judge Clancy's court for the purpose of suggesting to the court that the failure of Mayor Mullins to pay the fees in the cases operated as an abandon ment of the suits and to ask the court for an order requiring Mayor Mullins to show cause why the cases should not be dis mzissed for failure to pay the fees. Attorney McBride was in the courtroom already yesterday morning, then prepared to present the matter, but no court was held. This morning he asked the court if the latter would hear an ex parte motion, in which he intended to bring the matter up. Judge Clancy refused to hear him. City Attorney Templeman was in court to meet the attack on the mayor for fail. ing to pay the fees in his ouster and re covery cases against the aldermen, but he was not called upon to exert himself in hehalf of Mr. Mullins, whose unconfirmed appointee he is. Mr. Templeman had been notified by Mr. McBride of what the latter intended. The reason the court would not hear Mr. McBride this mot ing was because the court had met simply to handle one mat ter, and was determined not to handle any others. Regular Motion Day. Tomorrow, however, is the court's reg ular motion calendar day, and the first business attended to usually is that con tained in ex parte motions. Mr. McBride will make his motion to morrow, when in all probability the court will entertain it, and thep Mayor Mullins will find himself dunned for the ready money. No reason has been given why the fees in the cases have not been paid. Mr. Mullins' explanation will be pre sented by Mr. Temnpieman tomorrow, probably.
