VOL XXIII. No. 140. BUTTE, MONTANA, FRIDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 25, 1903. PRICE FIVE CENTS SIXTY-FIVE IS TOTAL OF LIST Another Victim of Wreck Is Dead--Undertakers Overworked. CHRISTMAS FUNERAL Immense Concourse At tends Services in Con nellsville Today. Y ASSOC'IATED P1'RESS. Connellsville, Pa., Dee. Js.-Another name has been added to the long death list resulting iroum the D)unquesne limited wreck on the Italtimore & ()hio railroad at Dawson on Wednesday. Harry D)evlin, one of the three remainting patients at the Cottage State hospital died at to o'clock today. The total dead now number 65, and this probably completes the list. as the two still at the hospital are doing well and will problhly recover. Devlin's home was at I.enaconing, MI. There was onle Christmas funeral-that of Edison G(;olsmith. ;olsmithii was a popular young man and an immense con course attended the services. The bodies of the other Connellsville victims will be held until Saturday or Sunday before lurial. Undertakers Overworked. This in fact is necessary as the under takers are too overworked to conduct sev eral funerals in a day. Special services for the (lead were held in all the Protestant churches of coke regions today and after the burial of Father Fienellcp. which will take place to morrow. the Catholic churches will hold masses for the dead. The body of Father Fienello was con veyed to the main body of the church of the Inmmaculate Conception today, where it will reIaain in state until the funeral services on Saturday. The bodies of abshout 30 of the victims were gathered up and taken away on early trains today. Those identified will be shipped within the next 24 hours and the unknown will be cared for by the borough council. To Bury the Dead. President George (;. Porter has called a special meeting to take ileasures to. wards the formation of a relief committee to look after bodies unidentified or un claimed. In case no friends appear the citizens will see that the victims do not find a last resting place in the potter's field. The railroad company will con tribute liberally to this fund. The official investigation into the cautse of the disaster is being prosecuted vigor ously by the officers of the railroad cotm pany, but it is doubtful if any individual will be blamed for the accident. It was apparent that a numlber of switch ties had fallen off a westbound freight train and were strewn upon the passenger track, causing the flying express to be derailed. INFANT DIES WHILE RETURNING FROM CHURCH The year-old infant of Mr. and Mrs. I,. M. Law expired last night while the mother and father were returning from the Christmas festivities at t..e Christian church to their home, 9g~ West Granite street. At the church the child seemed in the best of health and spirits and there seemed to be nothing out of the ordinary in its condition. After the services the family returned home, accompanied by a lady friend. On the way the infant, tucked snugly in a silken shawl, passed quietly from life. The cause of its death is a mystery, and only two thcories are advanced; one is that the shawl became wrapped so tightly about the child's neck that it was strangled. Another theory is that it died from heart failure. Oin arriving hotme the go cart contaln ing the infant was placed to one side, and it was supposed that the child was asleep. When the friend took her de parture Mrs. Law went to the go-cart to take up the baby and found it cold in death.

The oriin t tt the Are hi utnknowAs BIDDELL'S PARTNER IS UNDER ARREST FAMOUS SWINDLE OF THE BANK OF ENGLAND AND OTHER INSTI TUTIONS IS RECALLED. BIDDELLS ONCE IN BUTTE One of Them, With His Foot in the Grave, Sold Book in Montana, Telling of Crimes. BY AS.Oc'IATI: i'RESS. New 1 ork, lec. a2.-One of the men involved many years ago in the famous Bank of England forgery case and who in 1877 set fire to Sing Sing prison, and escaped in the confusion, has just been arrested in this city at the age of 60, on a charge of arson in the first degree. lie is best known as Charles W\illiam son, alias Perrine, bult has passed recently as Pat Hall, which is said to bie his right tlatle. Posinlg as a retired bIanker itn i47;.. lie flooded W\all street with alleged forged Bluffalo and Eric, New York Central and (l hicago and Northwestern bonds. lie bought the Van Allen place at New Ilaim bhrg, I)uchess county, agreeing to pay $io,ooo for it. Ile paid $5oo down and insured the house for $tc.ooo. Four days later, on February t4 last, the house was burned. i'he circumstances discovered led to the withholding of payment onil the policies, and Ilall disappeared. lie has been livitug, the police learned, in New Jersey, and when he returned to this city lie was ar rested. Ilall is said to have passed -8 years in prison. Ile served four years of his sentence in the Rank of EIngland case, and thenl turned quteen's eviildence and wtas re leased. It is said lie showed the batnk governors how their notes had beenl raised and how to prevent it. There is a local interest in the above dispatch, as referentce is evidently made to the famlous swindle perpetrated tupon the Bank of EInglaid by tile Iiddell bIrothers, hoth of whom visited IButte a few years ago, selling their book telling of their lives, and one of whom died here. The other died subtlsequently. George and Henry Riddell were old men, broken in iealth fromt their long confine tment in Portland prison, when they camne to Montana and Butte four years ago, of fering for sale the book they had written descriptive of their swindling and pointing out how hard is the way of the trans gressor. George Riddell had virtually one foot in the grave when they canie to Butte. lie died soon afterwards, and money was raised here to send the body to New Eng land. The other brother went east later and soon afterwards died. Gigantic Swindle. Thile swindle perpetrated by the Biddel.s was the most gigantic of the age. It was probably never equalled. llhere were three of the birothers whq operated so success fully against the "old lady of Thread Needle street." About 3o years ago these men, then in their young days, started on their career of swindling. They began at first in a small way. Many a bank lost large sumts. They cov ered up their tracks sou successfully that they were never apprehended, and they went to Europe looking for big game. Their manipulation of the pen and the ink eraser made them a terror to uantkers in the old world. Finally they planned a great and final coup. They decided to tackle the financial stronghold of the world, the Bank of England. They opened an account of several hun dred pounds sterling and purported to carry on a legitimate brokerage business, dealing in cotton and other East Indian products. For several months they con ducted their transactions with the hank in an honorable and entirely legitimate man ner, thus completely throwing off sus picion. They often borrowed large sums of money upon bills of 1-iding for goods they had purchased, the banks not suspect ing them in the least. The Great Coup. Finally they prepared for the great coup. They issued forged bills of exchange and bogus bills of lading for tremendous sums of money. These were presented to the bank and discounted. The money was placed on deposit in the bank and nothing was suspected. T'hey secured several million pounds in that mianner, andi were planiiitig to escape when the day of reckotning camie. 'IlThe bank finally iecamie suspicious. One of the l indells piresetedd himself at the bank for the purpose of withdrawing two or three million pounds. lie was detaited a minuite while a detective placed himi ui der arrest. T'he swindle was such a gigaitic one that the stock exchange felt its effect, and there were several rittis on banks. 'The other two Iliddells fled the coun try in novel disguises. They went to Cuba and joined the revolutionists, andl were finally captured several years after the dis covery of the swindle. They were given long terms and finally piardoned. The story of their expierienices was written as a mioral instruction to young mien rather than as a thrilling tale. 'I'he two surviv ing brothers Iecamme evanlgelists andl fre quently lectured upon the evils of wrong doing. BALL FOR BENEFIT OF THE ORPHANS' HOME Big Suim to Be Realized in Helena Next Monday.
