M's Fine of $300.
Judge Clancy adjudged Charles W.

Montana company, guilty of contempt of

The court also stated that he would
hold Mr. Goodale responsible for the fine
of $300 imposed on the Boston & Montana

The decision was in the contempt case

Montana company, C. W. Goodale, George
Moulthrop, J. C. Adams and B. H. Dun
shee adjudged guilty of contempt of court
for working certain ore bodies in the
Pennsylvania mine, alleged to be part of the
vein given to the plaintilf by order of the
court three years ago.
Not in Court Saturday.
Mr. Goodale was not in court Saturday
and Judge Clancy withheld his decision un
til this morning. The court in addressing
Mr. Goodale briefly reviewed his decision
as against the other defendants and added:
"Where a corporation is adjudged guilty,
some officer of the company must pay. I'll
have to put you in the harness, I guess. You
will be held responsible for the payment of
the $.too fine against the Boston & Mon
tana company and put in jail in dtfault of
payment.
"You are fined $3oo for contempt of
court and will be committed to jail in de
fault of payment.
"The same course will be had in regard
to the other defendants."
C. F. Kelley, attorney for the defend
ants, asked for a stay of execution of live
days and took an excpetion to the court's
ruling in the case of each defendant.
Stay Granted.
Judge Clancy granted a stay until Satur
day at a o'clock, when the bill of excep
tions on the appeal to the supreme court
will be filed.
The court asked J. II. Denny, attorney
for the Montana Ore Purchasing company
if he had anything to offer. Mr. Denny
thereupon offered an affidavit of James
ibule, a miner employed in the Rarus.
The affidavit alleged that after the de
cree of the court had been made certain
workings in the Pennsylvania affected by
the court's order had been blown up with
dynamite. Mr. Denny asked for an order
requiring the defendants to show cause
why the contempt continued, and another
order adjudging the Montana Ore Pur
chasing company the owner of the veins
in question. "I would like to have a hear
ing on this petition before newt Saturday,"
said Mr. Denny.
"Well, I won't do it," said Judge Clancy;
"I won't be bored with this matter."
The court set the hearing for December
24 at s o'clock.
PARDON FOR PERES
PElCIAL TO Trll INTER tMUNTrAIN.
Helena, Dec. I4.-tuv. J. K. Toole to
day pardoned Canile Percs who was sent
to the state penitentiary two years ago
from Cascade county on the charge of as
saulting Adrienne Bacques, a 14-year-old
girl, his niece.
Peres lived on a ranch near Sand Coulee
and the girl claimed he had wronged her.
During the prosecution of her charge, she
enlisted the sympathy of Postmaster Smith
who gave her a temporary home with his
family. The postmaster and others took
an active interest isn the case and labored
conscientiously to bring about a conviction,
believing the girl told the truth.
She was sent back to her home in Paris,
France, after Peres' conviction. Not long
ago she startled the Cascade county au
thorities by writing letters to the effect
that she had sworn falsely against Peres
and that he had been convicted on per
jured testimony.
T. E. Brady, who had been Peres attor
ney at his trial. started in investigation
that ended with today's action by tile gov
ernor. Mr. Brady learned that the Smith
family had reason to change their opinion
of the girl's truthfulness. Mr. Smith said
that during her brief residence at his home
he had learned enough to convince him
she could not be believed.
Mr. Brady laid the matter before the
governor with the result that today the
executive granted Peres an unconditional
pardon, thus setting aside a terrible mis
takeof justice which had brought about
the conviction of an innocent man,
