THE BUTTE INTER MOUNTAIN__
VOL XXIII. No. 110. BUTTE, MONTANA, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 1903. PRICE FIVE CENTS HEINZE'S MAPS OF LITTLE IMPORT Charts Submitted Fail to Show Workings Said to Be Worked. MANY ARE IMAGINARY Places Where Injunction Is Said to Be Violated Not Set Down. An extraordinary situation was devel oped today in the Pennsylvania case con tempt matter on trial in Judge Clancy's court, in which Heinze charged the Bos ton & ,Montana company with violating the injunction order in the suit. Witness J. 1H1. Trerise, Heinse's first ex pert, and the llcinze maps, put in evidence for the purpose of proving Heinze's con tention, developed the remarkable situa tion. Together they revealed some pe culiar discrepancies between the charges and the proof, and also rather extraor dinary methods of connecting one with the other. The Speciflo Charge. The Boston & Montana company is charged with violating the injunction by working the veins which Heinze claims the injunction gave to him. The maps were introduced in evidence and hung up on easels, so Trerise and his fellow wit nesses might testify, by means of them, as to where the Boston & Montana com pany has been working in violation of the injunction. Yet, while Mr. Trerise was giving evi dence today, he was compelled to admit that both of the cross-section maps. the principal maps before the court, there being no other cross-sections and only one plane map, which merely showed the levels in the mine, omitted to show any of the workings of the Boston & Montana company upon which the contempt action is basdd. Neither Show It. Neither of the maps showed where the Boston & Montana company had worked the ledges, which ledges are claimed by Heinze to be within the enjoined plane set over to hint, nor in that respect laid before the court the underground situ ation so he might judge for himself whether the ore bodies thus worked are included within the injunction lines or not. Another extraordinary situation was re vealed when Mr. Trerise, after acknowl edging the failure of the two cross-sections to show tihe places of the alleged viola tions of the injunction, put still another cross-section in evidence to remedy the defects of the first. When he had told what the new cross section was intended to represent, and that it was supposed to show the contents of the Pennsylvania claim in a cut right across where the Boston & Montana com pany had been working-show the ledges and the workings cut north and south-it was developed that nearly all of the lines on the map, which pretended to show workings carried down through the earth on veins, were mere imaginary drawings. Merely Imaginary. Mr. Trerise confessed that in one ease there were projections between three points which were 325 feet in length; that the lines on the map did not show any openings in the ground, but mere imagi nary connections projected through the earth from one point to another, and touching a bit of ore developed here and another bit developed there. These points were too feet and 125 feet apart. When the case opened this morning the cross-examination of J. H. Trerise, Heinze's first expert witness, was resumed by IMr. Forbis. "Did you look at your map last night?" Mr. Forbis asked. "Yes, sir," the witness replied. "Did you look at your map to see how far you had run south with the crosscut on the eoo level?" "It runs south about ioo feet.' "It Is southwest, isn't it ?" "Yes." "The fifth floor is south of the extreme work done south on the 7oo level of the Pennsylvania mine prior to the trial of the case ?" "Yes." "What workings are there on No. 7 vein ?" "I think the upraise some distance above our 700 level is on the streak called the No. 7 vein by the Pennsylvania people." "What distance is it actually stoped?" the lawyer asked. "I think close to the 7oo level," the wit ness replied. "IIas it ever been stoped below the lower transverse fissure ?" ' "I think not." "I'll ask you if it doesn't disanppear at the fissure ?" "I think not," sail Trerise. The purpose of this cross-examination was to test thq witness' knowledge of the vein which the plaintiff says exists :ll the way down from the surface of the Rarus to the 1,300 level of the Pennsylvania, and the locality in the earth here under discus. sion was at the 700 level of the Pennsyl vania mine. The witness showed a good deal of un certainty about what kind of a vein ex isted at this point, and about just where it was and what its dimetsions were. He thought Ihe could trace the vein above the fissure and he was sure it ex isted further west than thle exact point the lawyer wanted to know about. The witness could not trace the rein tiup from below to the crossfissure at this point. The fissure in question was the east finsure. The witness coubl not trace the vein west of the fissure, The witness said thie slope calledl the stull stope follows s veilt, .Coatinuld as Page ZIevsa) SHOT TO DEATH BY GUARDS IN MASKS PETER MORTENSEN PAYS EXTREME PENALTY FOR ATROCIOUS MURDER OF J. R. HAY. FACES RIFLES WITH NERVE None Will K.-ow Who Fired the Fatal Shot, as All of the Guns Wcre Not Loaded With Balls. SBY ASiOII'AIE.I Pi 'FSF. Salt Lake. Utah, Nov. 2.--Peter Mor tensen, the slayer of Jamles R. liay, was shot to death in the southeast passage of the state penitentiary yard ait io:31 this mnorninlg. Mainlltlailig his illoclnce to the last, he walked to the chair placed against the heavy stone wall of the prison yard without weakening and bid the guards and deputy sheriffs good-bye with no tremor in his voice. Mortensen was killed instantly, the four bullets from the rifles of the execution squad, concealed behind a thick curtain in thie door of the blacksmith shop, 12 yards distanlt, piercing the white target pinned over his heart. When the shots rang out M.ortensen lunged forward in the chair, his head. dropped on his breast and his hands, strapped to the chair, quivered a moment and then were still. Examination showed that all four bul lets had gone clear through his body and into the boards blehind the chair. Mortsecn's remlains were later turned over to his relatives for burial. To the very last Mortensen asserted his innocence of the murder of linay. "I did not kill Jimmy Hlay," he said to the news ((Continuleil on Page 't'hree.) MILLER CASE UP BEFORE A. F. OF L. BY AS..Oc'IA ti'D PRESS. Po0.tnn, Mass., Nov. o.-W.hen the co : vention of the Federation of l.alor rcas semblted today thile was some expectation that final adjournment might be reached tomorrow evening. The first business of today was to adot some plan whereby the problems arising from the relations of the building trades affiliated with the federation might be eciectually settled, either by first enlarg ing the executive council by creating a special executive council or by creating a special committee which would have e: tensive powers to deal with the building trades difficulties. Action upon this mat ter was postponed from yesterday when the convention was divided as to the proper course to pursue. Vice-President Duncan stated that Presi dent Roosevelt had responded to the ap peal of the federation, repeatedly made to many presidents, and had pardoned Ephriam W. Clark, who has been serving a life sentence for murder as one of the schooner Jefferson Borden mutineers. The announcement was greeted with applause and a vote of thanks was ordered to be telegraphed to the president and congratu latio.,s to Clark. The committee on law reported favor ably on a resolution to add two members to the executive council who shall look after all matters pertaining to the build ing trades. The A. F. of L. disposed summarily of the "open shop" issue as raised in the case of William A. Miller, now employed in the government printing oflice at Washington, and the Miller case itself by unanimously declaring in favor of the union shop in government as well as in private enter prises and by petitioning President Roose velt to re-examine the evidence offered against Miller and if verified to remove Miller. Although the resolution adopted presented the federation's view on both the "open shop" and the Miller .case, the issues are kept entirely distinct. The re examination of the Miller case is not re quested because Miller is a non-unionist, a circumstance formerly urged as a reason for his removal, but because the federation believes Miller is "totally unfit to be in charge of working people." Resolutions were adopted favoring the construction of the Panama canal by citi zens of the United States urging that the Chinese exclusion act be made to apply in the Philippines and Hawaiian islands and favoring woman's suffrage and the election of the president and of United States sen ators by a direct vote. The full text of the resolution concern ing the Miller case follows: "Whereas, The attention of President Roosevelt, Secretary of Commerce and La bor Cortelyou and Public Printer Palmer has been called to the employment in the bindery of the government printing office of one William A. Miller, assistant fore man ; and, "Wl-creas, Said William A. Miller has proved in affidavits and court records in our possession to be a big:amist, perjurer, defaulter and one totally unfit to be in charge of working people; and, "Whereas, The attention of the public officials above referred to has been called to seven violations of civil service rules and two violations of revised statutes (an-d of which violations, demand instant dis. missal from the service) by said William A. Miller; and, "Whereas, President Roosevelt has de clared the charge of personal unfitness of William A. Miller, to be one of 'routine matter of administrative detail;' and, "Whereas, We regard the continued re tention of William A. Miller in the govern ment employment to be a menace to pro duction of creditable work because of dis satisfaction with his tmethlods as foreman; therefore, be it "Resolved, That the American Federa tion of Labor, in convention assembled, hereby petition President Roosevelt to ex, amine into the affidavits and testimonies submitted by local union No. 4, Interna tional Brotherhood of Bookbinders, to Public Printer Palmer, and upon verifica tion to immediately remove him, William A. Miller, from the government service." An amendment to the resolution that the federation place itself on record in favor of the union shop everywhere in federal, state and municipal employment, as well as in private enterprises, was unanimously adopted, PANAMA WILL SIAND FIRMLY FOR ITS FREEDOM Colombian Commission ers Effect Nothing by Colon Meeting.
