Mr. Forlis then offered the papers in
the inspection proceedings and in the
equity and law cases between the parties
in evidence and they were admitted with
out objection. At the conclusion of the
offer Mr. Forbis said:
"That is our case."
Judge M cHlatten opened the defendants'
side of the hearing by reading the latter's
answer, which denied all the allegations
of the petition. The answer said that
the defendants had not extracted ore
from the enjoined ground, and denied that
the inspection was necessary to the plain
Then Judge MeHatten moved the court
to dismiss the application for the survey
and inspection, and to refuse to grant
the order. He gave a number of grounds,
numbering them from firstly to seventhly.
He said the court had no jurisdiction to
grant the order; that, from the plaintiffs'
proofs thus far, the petition had not been
made and was not being maintained for
the purpose of enabling the plaintiff to
prepare for the Michael Davitt trial; and
that the petitioner had full access to the
workings in the Michael Davitt through
its own workings, and that the defendants
did not object to the petitioner's using
those workings; and that the court had
no jurisdiction to grant the plaintiff access
through the defendants' openings.
"They want to go through our ground.
They should go through their own
ground, The bulkheads are put in there
to keep them out," the IIHeinze lawyer ad
Then Mr. Forbis opposed the motion
to dismiss, and said:
"If it please the court, I don't know
just where to take up Judge 'McHatten's
argument, whether to begin *with firstly
or seventhly or some other portion of it.
"But I do know that the injunction in
this case has been flagrantly violated, and
that the defendants in this case do not
want the matter investigated. It is evi

Clancy last July revoking all permission
to go into the Rarns workings. Not con
tent with that, they have closed the
Michael Davitt up with bulkheads and are
mtining the ground and leaving it a shell.
"I say the evidence shows this. It
shows that the property is being ablio
lutely destroyed in utter violation of your
honor's order.
"It is unpleasant for me to come
into this court and make these charges.
And I can't understand how any man
can openly violate the order of this
court. I defy them to show that we ever
have violated the order of the court
either in letter or spirit.
"Vet they ask this court to refuse to
investigate this matter, and they say it has
no power to investigate it. If it cannot
investigate it, the court had better be
abolished, and leave this matter to the
shotgun men and violence.
"But the court must find out what is
being done in any instance before the
court can enforce its orders or stop the
violation of them. Is it fair to deny us
.protection for our property on the ground
that the court has no power to enforce its
injunctions ?
"I ask your honor, if you cannot stop
these parties from taking this ore, to dis
solve the injunction, and let us go in
there and by a scramble obtain what sharq,
of it we can. But that is not the pur
pose of courts or of law.
"And I say if it takes the UTnited States
army to uphold the laws, let it be brought
in here. I ask your honor to bring the
soldiers of the United States army in
here and see if they are or are not
stronger than the Montana Ore Purchasing
"The law says that the parties to liti
:ation shall have access to all the work
ings in the disputed ground to protect
their rights, and we demand to be granted
those rights which the law says we shall
have," concluded Mr. Forbis.
lie then read decisions to the effect
that it was right and proper that parties
to litigation involving ledges in mines
shall have inspections of the litigated
property underground at all reasonable
times in proper cases.
The decision of the supreme court of
the state in a proceeding involving mines
of Butte, in which a writ of supervisory
control was granted, was read, and it said
that where one party was working the
ground, it was right that the other should
be allowed to examine the underground`
workings with a few men.
"I don't know of a mine in this camp
belonging to us that these parties cannot
get into," said Mr. Forbis.
"In this case the evidence shows that
the Montana Ore Purchasing company is
running a secret drift in the Michael
Davitt, and is working three separate
veins and extracting the ore.
"Yet Judge McHatten says the court has
no jurisdiction to stop that; no jurisdic
tion to enforce his order of injunction. We
have as large bondl up in the case as
have they, and yet they utterly disregard
the fact and are taking out the ore in
direct violation of your honor's order," heo
added. d
Mr. Forbis said the court had equity
powers ant would grant an order of in
spection wherever there was a reasonable
ground for the suspicion that the court's
injunction was being violated.
"\What is a suspicion?" Mr. Forbis
asked. "They are suspected of entering
our ground and extracting our ore. That
is the case here, and we ask the court
to compel these parties to open these 'bulk
heads and allow us a fair inspection of
this property.
"This matter is of vast importance,"
continued Mr. Forbis, " asn't this court
power to discover whether your hone's
order has been violated ? Hasn't this court
power to open up this ground and take
evidence for this purpose?
"We've shown that we can't get into
the ground unless we go west of the shaft.
Yet Judge McHatten says we can't go in
"To reach that secret drift we've got
to go south of the shaft and west of the
shaft and south again and then back east,
and then we can reach that point.
"They say your honor can't grant this
inspection, and that in the meantime they'll
mine out the rich ledges and leave the
Michael Devitt a mere shell at the end
of this litigation.
"They say, your honor, that notwith
standing the power and majesty of this
court, you cannot give us this inspection,
and that you can not let us into this
ground," said Mr. Forbis.
IMr, Forbis read a number of other
decisions, showing that the court had the
Dr. Lyon's

for over a quarter of a century
power to grant an inspection in such cJr
iumstances as existed in the case under
"Why, your honor, even if they came
intn this court and swore that the in
junotion had not been violated, you would
have the right to grant this inspection,"
the lawyer said.
Mr. Forbis read the decision in the
Parrot case, and showed that it was in
tie power of the court to decide what
cxpense the plaintiff should be allowed
to put the defendants to in the case in
order to make the inspection and survey.
Mr. Forbis went on to say:
"Now, your honor, if a man will de
lilrately violate the order of the court,
will he not also destroy all traces of his
lork? Will not these parties do that?
Are they not doing it now?
"The case must be tried in the ordinary
course, and that means some time from
now, and in the meantime are they to be
permitted to do that, I ask?
"This is a case where these parties are
running levels right up to our claim lines,
and yet they say we are not entitled to an
inspection of their workings.
"Why, they say we know everything
now. If we do, in the name of all that
is open and fair, why all this secrecy?
Why do they object so determinedly to
our going in there? Why these bulk
heads? Why these drifts that are hidden
away in the depths of the earth and un
accounted for?" said Mr. Forbis.
lie then said that Judge McHatten had
said that the plaintiff could get into the
Michael Devitt to the place where the
sound of mining had been heard, through
the Butte & Boston's own workings.
"If be can show us how this can be
done, I should be glad to have him do
so," said Mr. Forbis. "I defy him to
-show anything of the kind. Lie knows he
"We can get into one place where a
bulkhead was blasted down. We can get
into one other place where, time and
again, we have found men filching ore
from the enjoined ore bodies, but with
complaints of which we have not troubled
the court," said Mr. Forbis.
"I suppose the defendants will say they
did not do that either. But the ore went
up the Rarus shaft, that is sure. We don't
know that they took the ore, but it was
hoisted through their shaft. We know
that no ore has ever been filched by any
one, by means of the Boston & Montana
workings," said Mr. Forbis.
"They say we want to know what is
being done in the Rarus. We want to
know what is being done in the Michael
)Devitt; that's what we want to know,
and that is the reason we ask your honor
to grant this inspection.
"\We are entitled to know what is be
ilg done in the Michael Devitt," Mr. For
bis ended.
When he had taken his seat Judge Mc
liatten replied to his argument, and the
lcinze lawyer said that the adverse party
wanted the Heinze side to bring in books
and other papers to incriminate themselves
and convict them of contempt of court in
the violation of the court's injunction, and
that that position of Mr. Forbis' was
Judge Knowles overruled the motion
with the following statement, when the
lawyer took his seat:
"An inspection may be granted where
there is a well grounded suspicion that
the property has been invaded by the op
position party.
In this case I think there is sufficient
ground of suspicion to show a probability
that the defendants are mining in the
Michael Devitt ground.
"This is a case in equity. This is not
such a matter as a contempt in the pres
ence of the court.
"if an order of inspection is made in
the case it will grant the plaintiff the right
to inspect the Michael Devitt workings
olly. The order of inspection will not
be for the purpose of an inspection of the
Rarus workings.
"Now, they say there are workings be
low the regular level of the mine, and this
order, if it is made, will be to see if that
i. so, and to see if the workings are
within the Michael Devitt ground.
"With these considerations in view, I
will overrule the motion."
