INTER MOUNTAIN'S ANACONDA BUREAU
203 Main Street-Telephone No. 69-Advertising Rates Furnished on Application. TWO LONE MEN PATROL THE CITY sNACONDA LIES AT THE MERCY OF BANDITS, SHOULD THEY RAID THE TOWN. IS A TREMENDOUS TASK nlight Chief Has One Policeman to Help Him Guard Area Too Large for Ten Men to Cover. 5IPCtAL TO TIHE INTER MOUNTAIN. Anaconda, Sept. ts.-Since the robbery pf Thueson's tailoring chop occurred a few esights ago the question is being frequently asked whether or not some band of out laws could not easily and quietly approach (Anaconda and within an hour or so, on some dark night, walk away with the en tire city and its contents. For all of the police department at stight they might well do so. Hhat there is of the night police force seems to be first class. Assistant Chief of Police Bar ney Fitzpatrick is conscientious and an earnest worker at all thnes. He doubtless would get his entire force on hand and be ready for action should the occasion de mnand, but it may readily be understood that Barney and his force would cut little ee if the town were to be attacked by a dozen or more desperadoes. Tremendous Force. Barney is one end of the night force, while one patrolman constitutes the other end and the entire force on duty at night as well. Two policemen are, under the present condition of affairs, the entire police force during the hours of the night. Assistant Chief Barney starts from the city hall during the early hours of the evening and hies himself off to the east end of the town. He hurriedly makes an investigation of conditions there and then be runs quickly to the west end. A Settled Rendezvous. At the Intersection of Main and Park streets he meets his entire force of patrol men--one lone star wearer-and to him Barney gives instructions to keep his eye on the town, and when he says the town he means the whole town. The assistapt chief then makes a header for the west end and, cautiously covering that district, he wends his way back to the city and peeps into the doings of the south side. It's about lunch time now and Barney draws forth from his coat pocket a few packages of condensed food which he manages to eat on the run. The south end gets the same careful Asthma and Hay Fever Curel. " The truly marvelous cures of Asthma, which are being efected by Dr. Schlu mann's Asthma Cure certainly call for notice. R Bev. G. L. Taylor, of Wuashburn, IlL, says: "Some '7 years ago my wife used several packages of your Asthma Cure whoich resulted In a permanent care." A Hay Fever sufferer writes: "Ihave been a suforer from Hay Fever for over 90 years, and it seemed harder every year. The urst nlgth I used your Asthma Cure I wasu greatly relieved. It cured my cough after uing a few times. I shall recom mend it to all suferenrs of Hay Fever." Mrs. Martha imerson, LanPburg Mich. . Sold by all drun giaCt st S0 a& 61.00. end e stamp. to Br. a.

The north side, where is likely to be a row, a murder or a cutting scrape of some sort at any moment, has to receive its quota of time also, and the assistant chief finds it necessary to visit that district as well. In fact, if the night officer stops for two minutes to talk with a passer-by or take a rest he will have consumed moments of his official time which can never be re gained. The lone patrolman has his hands full watching the principal parts of the central portions. He Smiles On. With all his work and his ground to cover, the assistant chief does not com plain. He rather enjoys his hard work and smiles about it. Nevertheless it is a fact that had the city been properly pro tected by patrolmen the shop of Thueson, situated in the heart of the city and on one of the principal streets, would never have been entered by the front door and plundered, as it was a. few nights ago. The humor of the situation strikes one when it is found that but two patrolmen cover all of Anaconda dur ing the night time. And this grows more rmusing and at the same time alarming when it is realized that Butte, not a great deal larger in point of area and but about three or four times larger when population is considered, is patroled by at least 40 policemen. Ana conda has as her sum total of policemen, including Chief Powers and the assistant chief, about six officers. Two of these must protect the town and the town's property by night, while the others do duty during the day. The fault that the chief of police has not his full quota of patrolmen does not lie with the council, as was demonstrated at the last council meeting. At that meet ing Patrolman Barkovitch was exonerated of the charges preferred against him and he was ordered reinstated by the council. When the patrolman reported for duty the next morning the chief of police stated that Mayor Frinke had ordered him to give B1arkovich no place on the police force, and this notwithstanding that there are two vacancies on the force at the present time. Barkovich to Persevere. Barkovich will, of course, persist in re porting for duty and at the end of the month will endeavor to get his pay through mandamus proceedings. In the meantime the city is open to all desperadoes who may have a trick to turn. RECOVERS HER POCKETBOOK Mrs. St. Jean Made Happy by Restora tion of Valuables. SPI'iIr.L TO TIlE INTER MOUNTAIN.

M'CABE GETS OUT ON HABEAS CORPUS SUPREME COURT GRANTS WRIT SOUGHT BY ATTORNEYS FOR THE ANACONDA MAN. IS TO BE HEARD OCTOBER 6 Decision of the Highest Tribunal in the State Does Not Agree With That of Silver Bow Jurist. SPECIAL TO TlHE INTE* MOI'NTAIN. Anaconda, Sept. Is.-After several un successful attempts word comes to Attor-! neys J. II. Dtffy and John II. Tolan that their application before the supreme court, represented by Chief Justice Brantly, for a writ of habeas corpus for William Mc Cabe had been granted and that the sua preme court would hear the matter on Oc tober 6. In the meantime McCahe will be ad mitted to ball in the tinit of $r,ooo. McCahe was an cmploye of the Washoe smelter and is charged with extortion. It was alleged that McCabe had entered into a conspiracy with another employc of the smelter with the purpose in view of obtain ing money from foreigners who sought work. McCabe and His partner, it is charged, promised protection to the em ployes in McCabe's department in the event of their paying $to for that protec tion. The case was tried in the justice court and McCabe was held to the district court. Several applications for writs of habeas corpus filed by the attorneys for the de fendant were denied. Judge Iarney of Butte held that the attorneys were itn con tempt in asking him for a writ in this case after such a request had been refused hyl Judge Napton in his court. The supreme court decision by Justice Brantly does not, in consequence, agree with the Silver Bow jurist. BURIED BY MASS OF FALLING ROCKS AGED PROSPECTOR LIES HELPLESS FOR HOURS--CRIES FINALLY BRING HIM AID. SPECIAL TO TII: INTER MOUNTAIN. Dillon, Sept. Is.-Buried up to his neck in a mass of broken rock, his head cut, blood streaming down has face, his body crushed and bruised, John Shoemaker lay for six hours yesterday, vainly crying for help in a region where there is not more than one inhabitant to several square miles. Fortunately for him George Rhino, who was working more than a mile away, heard his cries and came to his assistance before Shoemaker perished. Shoemaker is an old miner and pros pector-a sort of hermit. lie is develop ing a mining claim on the south fork of the Big Hole, several miles fromt a habita tion. Yesterday, while working on an open cut on his property, he put in an unusually big blast. Through carelessness or acci dent, which it is impossible to learn, he did not shelter himself. The result was that when the blast was exploded a mass of falling rock buried Shoemaker to the neck. He was rendered unconscious for a time. When his senses returned he was helpless. With broken tones and wedged tightly in the rock, he could not move. He called and cried for help for six hours, and finally Rhino heard the voice, came and dug him out. Rhino managed to carry the old man to a settlement a few miles away, and there Shoemaker is being attended. It is said he cannot live. The news of the ac cident reached Dillon today.

ASKS TRANSFER OF THE BULLION IN BOYD CASE County Attorney Breen today present ed an order to Judge McClernan, asking the latter to authorize the transfer to Philipsburg, Granite county, of the bul lion recovered after the Bimetallic com pany bullion robbery several years ago. Joseph Boyd is accused of grand lar ceny in connection with the theft of the bullion, and he is to be tried at Philips burg on the a4th Instant by County Attor ney Breen. The case has been on the books for several years, being an Inheritance of the present county attorney's administration. The trial has been continued a number of times because the witnesses were out of the country and could not be brought to Butte for the trial, The bullion which Mr. Breen asked the court to transfer to Granite county has been in the custody of the sheriff at Butte for quite a while. It is valued at about $a,ooo. Mr. Breen wants to use it as an exhibit at the trial of Boyd. This is the only part of the bullion the mining company was robbed of, the re mainder never having been recovered. A short time ago the sheriff's office here was visited by an official of the company who took measurements of it, in prepara tion for the prosecution of Boyd. It is thought the trial of Boyd will not take very long, and if the witnesses can be brought into the court there is some probability of convicting him.
