TO TE INTER MOUNTAIN. Anaconda, Oct. 26.-In all likelihood the present situation in Anaconda will never have an equal as it never has had in the pnst. 1 o say that the city has simply stopped as certain as a city can stop merely indifferently ex. presses the sitluation. At the time the announcement came that the Amalgamated properties intended closing down for an indefinite period Anaconda was Just recovering from a siege which was the result of the former shuttdown here owting to the necessity of constructing a new smoke stack at the smelter. Frontm Indications it was predicted that the coming winter in Anaconda would be one of the most prosperous and most promising tfrim the workingman's stantdpoint that the city halt known for many years. Everyone felt that prosperity had once more returned to the town. The suttdden shutting down of the mine int Butte and the consequlent orders given to close the smelters here, owitng to the injulnc tion granted by Judge Clancy in the lhuston & Montana case, which dcridtled that the Amalgamated companly had nto right to an existence in this state, caused the towvn to take on the greatest excitemtlent that it has cxperi enced for many years. Within two hours after the news had gained circulation tile town actually stoplped. EJvery. one is anxiously awaiting the outcome. Itosi mess men and the laboring element have little of anything but condemtnation for the IIhinze element. They feel In Anaconda that the far. cical affair known as the lBoston & Montana suit, wherein Johnny Mac(;inniss asks that lie be given protection for his one-fifteenth of t per cent of stock in that company is respon sible for the shutting off of their living Just at the time work is most needed. Everyone now feels that the true spirit of the Hleinze crowd and the catnet purpons of the litigtion which they hold against the Amalgamated in obst instances can well be understood. Ieinze and his following had sount symt pathizers In Anaconda a few weeks ago. lie and his following have certainly lost them by their absurd methods which are so plainly visible in the Bostuon & Montana case. There are those who really believed tlat John MacGinnins was in earnest regarding his anxiety to protect his stock. Coinsequently when it was understood that the Miners' Union intended buying his stock provided he would sell, the Ilcinze friends here had little doubt but that 1lac(;inniks woutl take the liberal offer to be made by the Mliners' Union and accept the money tentdered for his stock. That would imeant the immediate resumnptiotn if work here and the reopening of the Mtines t aid smelters in the state, it was argued. The Hleinze peolple in Anaconda were really startled when they learned by an extra edition of the Inter Mountain that Johnny MacGnii nins had gone from Bultte hurrire.ly. It would be about as difficult now to find an Anacondat who favors Ileinze as it woutld be to secure an injunction in Itutte from Judge llarney to estop Judge Clancy from deciding litigation in favor of the United Cup per company. The situation. here is a very serious one. Its like has never been experienced within Anaconmla's iitory and its retsult will bie tmost disastrouis unlesas there appearn some plitan, and a speedy ole, for the genelral resxmlltinll of busineCss.

AYOIDS THE POINT IN HIS STATEMENT HEINZE DODGES THE ISSUE IN t BUTTE TO DISCUSS THE COLO RADO SITUATION HIS STORY OF JOHNNY'S FEAR Heinze Says MacGinniss Fled From I Butte Because He Feared He Might Suffer Bodily Harm. Mr. lIeinuze in the Mlinr yesterday morn ing appears in print with another fake and evasive "statement," in which bhe fails, even more completely than he did t in his first statement, to deal with the t qlUtStions at issue. 1' The people of Butte are interested in n knowing "Where is MacGinniss?" and t that little man's reasons for skipping out e of town to avoid meeting a committee of the Miners' union, which was going to him with a proposition by which the shut down could be ended. t In a statement of about 1,4oo words in length Heinze says just this much about this important subject: "Mr. MaciGin niss left Butte this afternoon because most t of the newspapers and large interests in the town are doing everything they can of an inflammatory nature to cause trouble and to incite riot during a heated period which in any event can do nothing but reflect discredit upon the citizens of Butte," Of course this is a malicious lie, as Mr. Heinze is well aware, and is a charge that cannot be substantiated. air. Heinze can point to nothing in any newspaper in Butte-save his own vile rag-that by any construction can be taken as tending to incite riot or creating public turmoil. Neither can he point to any act by the large interests in the city or by their offi cials that justifies his statement. In fact his remarks in this regard are but idle falsifications. It is a situation where Heinze has adopted the plan of lying hard in trying to divert public attention from the issues. The greater portion of the statement is given up to a discussion of the labor troubles in Colurado. Just now the peo ple of Montana are more interested in the shutdown here. Heinze uses many words in a vain attempt to uphold his original contention that the shutdown was ordered in pursuance of a stock jobbing plan. The condition of the market since the shut down, the public denial of his allegations by people in a position to know the facts, which belie Heinze's contention, are waved aside by him without so much as a word. In place of dealing with them he re news his former howl about Colorado. The nearest Heinze comes to dealing with the unwillingness of MacGitiniss to sell the stock--an unwillingness that led hint to cowardly flight--is a declaration, unsupported by any explanation or fact, that perhaps, in event of the supreme court holding with Judge Clancy, the value of MacGinniss' holdings in the B, & M. may amount to so per cent instead of one fifteenth of i per cent of the capital stock of that corporation. He does not say from whom MacGinniss proposes to extort, by district court de cree or otherwise, the extra p and 14-15 per cent of stock, In conclusion IIeinze renews his some what frayed and ragged argument that he is the only true friend of the miners in this camp and pleads in stereotyped and threadbare phrases for the miners to "stay with him." In prefacing this plea he announces that he is going to open an em ployment bureau for them, through which, on conditions he refrains from making g public, employment may possibly be ob 5 tained in his property, r ceinze has issued many circulars and e appeals and addresses to the miners during t, his career in Montana, but this is gen t erally recognized as the weakest docu ment to which he has signed his name, LOCAL SPORTS FOR EDDIE SANTRY NOW THOUGHT ANACONDA MONEY WI'L BE PLACED ON HIM WHEN HE MEETS HERRERA.

ADMIRAL BOWLES' REPORT ON SHIPS UNITED STATES HAS 252 VESSELS FIT FOR SERVICE, AND 45 ARE BUILDING. HAMPERED BY MATERIALS Unable to Get Steel and Nickel In Some instances-Hampton Roads Dock Should Be Made Modern. IIY ASSOCIATED PRESS. Washington, Oct. 26.-Rear Admiral Bowles, chief of the bureau of construc tion and repair, in his annual report to the secretary of the navy, reviews at length the progress of this government in t naval construction. Tue following addi tions have been made to the effective force of the navy during the year: One battleship, four monitors, :a tor pedo boats, t The list should have been increased by tw;o battleships and five cruisers, the re port states, but owing to strikes and othes t causes their completion was delayed. The report states that the "rate of progress bf vessels under construction at the present time presents some very encouraging indi- t cations, but considered as a whole, the t progress made during the last fiscal year has been very unsatisfactory." Speaking of the battleship Connecticut, which is being built at the government yard and which is a sister ship of the Louisiana, being built by a private com pany, the report says that although slightly behind the Louisiana the progress made has been up to the previous time of con. tract built ships and adds: "Better prospects for the delivery gf structural steel material and the complt, ness and accuracy of the plans upon whj t these ships and those subsequently auth ry, Ized are being built, furnish good grounds for believing that the future progress upon these latter vessels will exceed any re sults heretofore attained and that the com pletion of the hull and madhinery will not delay these vessels beyond the contract period." During the last year delays in the de liveries of armor have occurred but there has been but little delay in the delivery of vessels and much armor is now on hand in the shipyards in advance of the needs of the builders. Insufficient capacity for the production of nickel steel protective deck plates have been the cause of inadequate deliveries to the shipbuilders and has embarrassed and delayed their work to a considerable ex tent in the past year and is still operative. In connection with the improvements recommended for the Mare Island navy yard Admiral Bowles says: "It is desired, in order that the yard may be prepared for the building of the largest vessels, that preparations be made to that end." For the Puget Sound yard, it is pointed out that another drydock is required, also a marine railway and a number of build ings. Concerning the navy yard at Norfolk, Admiral Bowles says: "Being located on Hampton roads, where large fleets must of necessity rendezvous, this yard should un questionably be equipped as one of the fore most yards of the country. Recently the first-class battleship Illinois came to and left the yard without difficulty. This would appear to settle the question of sufficient depth of channel." It is stated that the bureau's work continues to be embarrassed by lack of sufficient drydock of capacity suited to tie dimensions of battleships and first-cl.j cruisers. Appended to the report is a summary which shows there are a52 vessels in the navy fit for service, 45 building and 23 unfit for sea service, The following are under construction or authorized: Battleships, :4; armored cruisers, eight; protected cruisers, nine; gunboat for g Great Lakes (not begun), one; composite gunboats, two; steel torpedo boats, six; training ships, two; training brig, one;m tugs, two. HARKINS FAMILY IN DIVORCE SUIT PHLEGMATIC FINN AND HIS WIFE DO NOT APPEAR TO RUN WELL IN HARNESS. EACH ASKS A SEPARATION And Each, It Appears, Believes the Other Is About as Bad as They Make 'Em -Spicy Testimony in Court. There was a spicy divorce trial in Judge Ilarney's court this morning be tween Katie Ilarkins and Gus Harkins, Finns. Both wanted to be divorced, but neither wanted the other to prevail in the case. There were several Finnish friends, witnesses and spectators in the courtroom, and the proceedings were marked with quaint evidence. Mrs. Harkins first suted her husband for separate maintainance, and Judge (:lancy gave her $30 a month alimony. Then she sued for divorce, alleging aban donment. In his answer Harkins filed a cross-complaint, alleging that his wife had abandoned him, and he prayed that her case be dismissed. In the same answer, however, he set up an affirmative cause of action against her on the ground of habitual drunkenness on her part, and asked for a divorce for himself. Judge lIarney heard the evidence with out a jury, and Attorney, Hogeville ap peared for the wife and Attorney Walker for the husband. Both Harkins and Mrs. lIarkins are still young. Mrs. Harkins went on the stand and said that she and her husband were mar ried in Butte in 1898, and that, with his consent, she went to Finland in sgot. She returned in 19os. "Do you kdow the defendant-do you know that man?" Mr. Hogeville asked her, pointing to Harkins. Mrs. Harkins, who was chewing gum, smt1iled and seplied; "Dat ball sy hus band." "Tell the court about his abandonment of you." "Veil, I don't know nodding 'bout it. Ai dank he has nudder voman," was the reply. They Separated. The witness said that when she returned to Butte from Finland Harkins was in Basin. She went there, and he told her he was out of work and to return to Butte and he would follow her, she said. She came to Butte. So did he. "Well, what then?" said the lawyer. "Veil, he vent room vit nudder man; I vent live vit udder people," was the reply. "Why was that?" The witness replied that Harkins told her he would not live with her any more. "Did you attempt to live with him?" "Yes." "Vell, hay don't vent to lif togedderi so ve can't lif togedder, and Ay dank ve better part," was the logical reply. Put Out of His House. Lpon cross-examination by Mr. Walker the witness denied that she ever got drunk, but said Harkins came home drunk fre quently. She denied that she was put out of his house by a Finn, present in court, who gave his name as Hall. The lawyer went into the question of whether she had not agreed with Harkins to separate from him entirely when she went back to the old country, and she replied : "No; ven Ay vent home, he vas shoost nice .man ever ban. Hay like hes vife foorst rate. Hay write nice letters home, too. Ven Ay kam back, all I can find hay had nudder voman." IMr. Hall, the neighbor referre4tAo above, took the stand. He said Mrs. Harkins was a good woman; did not get drunk, and that she "vairk to beat every tang." "Do you know anything about the trouble between her and her husband?" the lawyer asked. "I dank Haqrkins' fault. He vent ex cuse get rid of her. He vent get nudder voman, like any udder man," the witness replied. In Her Wrapper. Hall testified that Harkins had quit his work at the Pennsylvania mine in order to evade his wife when he heard she was returning from the old country. He was asked about the matter of whether Mrs. Harkins had once come to his house drunk and had been ejected by him, and he replied: "No; she vonce kam may house Christ mas morning in her wrapper, and Ay said: 'Vat kind vay dot to kam in man's house Christmas morning. Efry civilized and Christian people haf dair nice dress on Christmas morning.'" He then said that Mrs. Harkins was nervous that morning, and said she felt very blue because she had worked hard to get the house in order for Christmas; and that Christmas eve Harkins' friends had come and turned it upside down. Judge Harney granted Mrs. Harkins the decree sought.. 0, J[HENNESSY SAYS BIG STORE WILL NOT CLOSE D. J. Hennessy has issued the follow ing statement: "To Whom it May Concern: The Amalgamated Copper company, by the action of our courts, has been forced to suspend operations and its mines are shut down. Those who caused the court to close these mines have their agents busily engaged in circulating the story that this store is going to close and that its old customers who have been employed by the company are being refused credit. We wish to brand this statement as abso lutely false. Now as to the facts: Our store will be kept open, and furthermore we want it distinctly understood that the wives and children of the Amalgamated company's employee who have been cus tomers of ours will not suffer for the want of food while we have it in this store.

FROM SETTLING TWO NOTES Claimed in United States Court That Officers of Company Have Con spired to Defraud Stockholders. Twenty-four stockholders in the Mexi can Mines and Industrial company, a cor poration doing business in the republic of Mexico, with headquarters at Seattle, Wash., have applied to Judge Knowles as intervenors for a restraining order to prevent the officers of the company from paying two notes held against the com pany. In the petition for the order the In tervenors set forth as contentions that they never countenanced the giving of the notes or authorized in any way the trans action, and contend further that the said officers have conspired with Thomas M. Hodgens to defraud the stockholders. The officers named in the petition are: H. C. Walters, Seattle, Wash. ; Frank M. Leonard, Libby, Mont. ; A. N. Hamilton, Seattle, Wash.; J. T. Thornton, Seattle, Wash., Edward Dewdney, Vancouver, British Columbia. All of the above officers have arrived in the city in attendance on the case, and will appear as witnesses. The case was commenced on July 27, rgo3, in the Second judicial district of Montana. The petition asks that the officers be also restrained from selling any stock of the company to satisfy the notes in ques tion, alleging that they had no right to pledge stock as security. When the court's attention was called to the petition, Judge Stapleton arose and announced that the defense was ready for trial and that they wished to proceed. Owing to the fact that the cases of Loo Chan and Chan Kee, two Chinamen up for forging certificates .of registration, had,been set for today and would occupy the entire time of the court, the hearing in the order went over until zo a. ni, to morrow morning, HENRY MOSS DIES AT RIPE OLD AGE ,MONTANA PIONEER AND FORMER RESIDENT OF ,BUTTE AND DEER LODGE CITY. PASSES AWAY IN CALIFORNIA Something of His Career in This State Before Butte Was Known on the Map-Owned Several Mines. Henry Moss, a Montana pioneer, for many years a resident of the Deer Lodge valley and Butte, is dead in Los Angeles, Cal., whither he removed from Butte about two years ago. The news of his death will be received with deep regret by his friends, as he was one of Butte's most upright and honorable citizens, a devout Christian and a man who always stood for the best in civic matters. Mr. Moss was about 70 years of age and is survived by a widow and a brother, Joel A. Moss, who is engaged in the real estate business in Missoula. Mr. Moss was born in New Milford, Conn, and came West when a young man. He brought a load of freight into Alder gulch about 1864 or 1865, and realized a handsome profit from its sale. He mined around Virginia City for a time, and then, coming to Stuart, in Deer Lodge valley, located upon a ranch, being one of the first settlers in the valley. He prospered, and when Butte began to boom he moved here. He owned consid. erable property here. Among other prop erties he owned the Yellow Jacket claim on the flat south of town, believed to be a valuable property. Injunction Dissolved. BY ASSOCIATED PRESS.
