VOL. XXX1I.--NO 171. HELENA. MONTANA. FRIDAY MORNING, JULY 24, 1891. PRICE FIVE CBNTS THEY HOWLED FORi COPY, So Editor McKnight Gave the Printers the Articole Reflecting on Butte. He Befuesa to Divulge the Name of the Old "Mon tanian." 'threatened With Prison, But Given Till I eo-Night to Tell-No Strictures on the Judge Intended. Tnrrs, July 23.-[Rpecial.]-There was a large crowd in the district court room at seven o'clock this evening when the case of contempt was called in which Editor J. A. McKnight, Business Manager George E. Boos and City Editor F. It. Bowie are the defendants. United States District Attor ney Weed appeared as counsel for the de fendants. Messrs. Boos and iBowie were first examined and on its appearing that they knew nothing about the matter, the case against them was dismissed. Mr. Mo KJnight was then put on the stand. "I am the writer of the article," he said, in an swer to the first question asked. "Who was your informant for the matter contained in the article?" asked Attorney Campbell. "It did not come from any individual." "Then, it was a pure fabrication?" "No, sir; it was a composite article. I talked with a number of Hlelena people generally on the matter, and the article was the result of several expressions of opinion that I had heard." "Who was your informant?" repeated At torney Campbell. "The information given me was in pri vate conversation, and I don't feel at lib erty to tell who they were. It would be unprofeessional to mention the gentleman's game. The gentleman I refer to made re marks which formed the basis for a portion of the article. When he spoke of the mat ter to me I remarked that it would make a good news story. He said if I published it not to use his name, and I promised not to use his name." "What is his name," persisted Mr. Camp bell. "The name of that gentleman I will not be able to give as I do not think the por tion which gives offense is the portion that he told me." "Give the name of the party." Attorney Weed interposed, stating that the conversation had been private. Judge MaHatton inquired what portion of the article the conversation formed the basis for. "That portion," replied Mr. McKnight, "which refers to the fact that republicans and democrats together voted to retain Judge McHatton in office." "State all the conversation you had on that point." said Judge MoHatton. "I wish to say right here," said Mc Knight, "that nobody connected with the Davis will case gave this conversation or any part of it. This man said to me that no doubt republicans and democrats had combined to have McHatton retained, be caused they believed he would take the Butte view of the Davis case." "Was that all the conversation on which the article was based?" "No. it was a composite article. It was "No, it Was a composite article. It was made up front various sources. The 'deadly bias' referred to was an expression that I heard Col. Ingersoll use in the court room. I wrote the paragraph just to give a general idea of the feeling existing." "Who was it said that no judge or jury could be obtained in Silver Bow county who would give the case a fair trial." "I thought," said the witness, "that that had no bearing on anybody in particular. I did not intend to give any offense." Mr. Campbell then referred to the edi torial published last Sunday and asked who wrote that article. "I wrote it myself. It is the same as arti eles published all over the country." "Who wrote the headlines on the article on the telegraph page?" "I wrote the headlines and I wrote the story." "I now ask," said Mr. Campbell. "that the court instruct the witness to state the name of the person denominated an 'old Mountain'." Attorney Weed said: "There is no law or court on earth that can compel a betrayal of confidence, a private conversation, made in a private capacity and not for purposes of publication." The court ruled that the witness must answer the question, saying that had the gentleman who made the statement re quested that it be not published it would have been different, but he had only said: "If you publish it don't use my name." "The gentleman was not desirous of my printing it." said the witness. "I wrote it in a thoughtless manner and it would be wrong to give his name." "Did you not infer from what he said that there was a serious charge in it?" "I did not." "What did this moan mean by the exproes lion 'the lButte view?'" "I don't know." "Then you as editor of the Helena Jour nal were giving expression to views in your paper that you really did not know the na ture of." "I did not think there was any offense in the views." "Why didn't you inquire what the term 'Butte view' mneat?" "Because I d;dn't think it meant any thing in particulir." "Why didn't he want his name mentioned if there was no offence?" "Because he is a modest man and don't like his name to be in the pal er. I have only been in Helena since last September and I have no feeling in the matter my self." The judge now inquired of the witness the name of his informant. "I wish to consult my attorney first," said Mr. McKlnihlt. After consultation with his attorney the witness said: "While I don't wish to offend the court or provoke it any way I must de cline to give that gentleman's name." Judge MoHattom said: "'The gentleman who furnished this information did so at his peril. There is no barrier of secrloy to prevent inquiry as to whether he is guilty of contempt. 'This coou t does not indulge in personal feelings but requires and de mands investigatotn." "M there is any contempt," said Mr. Weed, "it is in the publication of the arti cle, not in the private expression of it." "I shall refuse to answer the question," said Mr. McKnight, "until I obtain the gentleman's permission." "Then I shall c3mmlt you until you do TI answer it," said the judge. It was agreed that the defendant should have time in which to consult the "old Montanian." Mr. Oampbell'read the editorial published in last Sunday's Journal headed "That Contempt Case." and stating that the lib- A erty of the press of Montana is in danger, and intimating that methods of Irish courts are being transferred to Montana. He also read the telegraphic account of last Satur day's proceedings. Both articles were filed. "Do you think there is anything offensive about those articles?" inquired Mr. Me- Knight in a surprised manner. "I am not commentingon that," said Mr. Campbell. Mr. Weed then took the witness in hand and to him Mr. McKnight said that he did not consider there was anything offensive in the artiele. He said he had studied it over sentence by sentence with the best grammarians in Montana and they could find nothing in it offensive to any court. He said further that he published it as a news item, not as an editorial. He admitted that on reading the article the second time he thought it might possibly offend the republicans of Silver Bow county, but had no thought that it would offend anyone else. The boys were yelling for copy, so he sent it to the printers. Judge McHatton then propounded a few questions to the witness: "What do you understand by a news item?" "There are several different kinds of I news. One kind is gossip. I have endeav ored to inaugurate on the Journal a column of this stuff, called 'The Man About Town.' t All editorial opinion is carefully eliminated from this column." "Does news represent fact or fabrica tion ?" "In a strict sense news is an account of what happens." "Do you consider that this happened?" "This was not strictly news. It was gossip." "Did you believe it to be true?" "Oh, I thought it likely that the two par I ties might have combined to re-elect you?" "Have you any knowledge of what is gen erally known as justice and equity in courts? Do you know that the judge is supposed to rule according to law and equity and not according to personal prejudice?" "Certainly. Now I think it over, I can see how the article might be construed in an offensive sense. But I had no such intention. I wrote it in a great hurry." S "How do you now consider the article?" e "I think it is altogether too general in all e respects to reflect on any particular court a or judge." "Do you think from your consideration of the matter that this charge contained in a your article, that there could not be ob n tained in this county a fair judge or jury does not charge improper justice on the n judge of this court and give the impression that the judge is prejudiced?" "Had I intended any stricture on the e judge I would have put it in the editorial r column as double-leaded matter instead of , in the gossip column." d "You think you are the injured person in this matter?" asked the judge. e "I do not." The case was then continued until to h morrow night to give Mr. McKnight time to ascertain whether he will divulge the name of his informant. MUST RESPECT THE COURT. The Farmers' Alliance Judge In Kansas Lectureid by His Superiors. TOPEKA, Kan., July 23.-The supreme court this evening took up the case against G. W. McKay, Farmers' alliance judge of Harper county, for contempt of court. O. C. Hooker and J. D. N. Radley, his conn sellers, were made defendants with him. It appeared to the court that Judge McKay was acting under a misapprehension of law. Each of the defendants stat ed he did not intend contempt and would hereafter implicitly obey the orders I of the court. Judge Horton was emphatic in his order, in which he said: "The case will be continued until September and if the orders of this court are not obeyed, we will teach the people, whether district judge or private individual, that the state of Kansas through its court, receives proper respect and its ordels proper observance."

FAITI IN THEIR LEADERS. The Trouble at the Tennessee aines Over I for tile lPrelset. t NASHVILTE, Tenn., July 23.-The miners' committee which went to Coal creek to-day 1 to communicate Gov. IBuchanan's decision to the men reached their destination at noon. A maess mooeeting was immediately held and the spokesmen of the committee detailed their conferences with the gover nor and the results thereof. They said the committee had received concessions, and in their opinion the men ought to make some. This did not meet with anything like uni versal satisfaction, but the implicit confi dence the mminers have in their leadgrs was shown by the unanimous vote to accept the report of the committee on resolutions. 'The gist of the resolutions was that the convicts should return to the mines, the miners guaranteeing they would not be molested. The militia will be ordered home. ,'ixty days will be allowed to convene th3 legisla turek during which time no convict shal be molested and no property shell be de stroyed, and the miners, if necessary, will plade guards to see the promises are kept good. The miners' committee returned to Kndxville this evening to confer with the govp nor. The conference with the governor this eveoing lasted three hours and ended with out $atisfactory results. Governor Buch anah declined the consider the prooosition for the armistice on the ground that it would be an implied compromise with vio lators of the law. A Convict Killed.

PAUL, July 23.-St. Paul has been made the boeadquarters of the national movement by the United Farmers' alliance to corner the entire wheat crop of the country. At No. 317 Wabasha street for several days, a large forde of employes have been engaged in sending out circulars with the view of having all classes of farmers keep back their wheat croo until prices have been advanced to ia hi;;h point. The plan is to unite the farmers inr a gigantic wheat trust in which the producers thall be the stookholders, and by which speculators and the wheat buyers will be squeezed to the wall. George M. Muller, a prominent alliance man, is at the head of the move ment. The wheat crop of the United States for 1891 is estimated at 500,(000,(K) bushels. The promoters of the farmera' trust be lieve four-fifths of this can be hold back by the grower from four to eight weeks. by which time, it is thought. prices will have gone skyward. Cir-ulars have already been sent to the secretairies of the alliances in all the wheat growing states. FROMI lVASHINGTON. TOO. The Alliance Cireonulrs einu Sent Out by the Thousands.

KILLED WITH A MALLET, Joe Clancy, of Billings, Murdered in His Own Saloon by a Tramp. Round-Up of the Hobo Element by Indignant Citizens Is Likely. News Froum Great Falls-A lig Irrigation Schlemne-Method lis Conertermce-A Minister Jiadly Burned. ]IILLINOH, July1.---jlpecial.)--About five o'clock this afternoon Joseph Clancy was foully murdered in his saloon on Minnesota avenue by a tramp whose name is unknown. From what can be bgathered the tramp was noisy and quarrelsome, and Clancy mildly remonstrated with him, whereupon the man picked up a heavy mallet used for tapping beer keps and stnck Clancy on the left temple, knocking him down and finishing his work with another violent blow upon the back of the prostrate man's head. He then went to the till and, inding no money there, demanded money from a bystander named Wrn. Quinn. Quinn says he gave the fellow 75 cents, when he ran out the back door of the saloon. Quinn then went behind the bar and got his rifle, and following the tramp, held him up until the marshal came and arrested him. Dr. Chapple was called, but found Clancy dead. Clancy was a quiet, inoffensive man about 50 years old, and a widower. He leaves two little boys. Public feeling runs high against the hobo element, who are pretty numerous, and a tramp roundup is on the programme, as the excitement is intense. 'his town has been overrun by tramps and hard characters for the east month. Last week a woman was assaulted for refusing to furnish a couple with food. An inquest is being held to-night.

TIHE SCENT OF BLOOD. tIorrible Scenes in Paris Over Two Corn ing Executions. PAimr, July 28.-HIorrible scenes have eon witnesseod the past week on and about he Place de Ia Roquotta, where criminals ire executed by the guillotine. Crowds of he lowest of the low have asnembled there -very evening and passed the night in the vicinity eagerly waiting to witness the oxe aution of the murderer, lleland, and his ac complice, Dore. O(n Slturday morning a large crowd gathered about the place in ex pectation of sersnrg the execution, which was postponed on account of the marriage of Executioner Diebler's non. Since that tiiur, Honday morning excepted, voyous and their consorts, as well as a certain number of people of the better class have gath ered each morning about the pris on and the execution place, sing ing, shouting, fighting and using profane langunnge. 'I hi morning the crowds were more r.otous anid otherwise, offensive than usual. Coneoquehnttiy the police were compelled to charge thoeI, making many arrests and somewhat clearing the air of the neighborhood. (argotten. cages and other public resorts in the neighborhood have throughout the week been doing a booming business as a result of this blood thirsty expectancy and when the police had cleared the streets, the officers had another quite as lively task clearing out the most disorderly of these drinking places. Here again many arrests were made and hideous drunken men and women, yelling and fight ing. were escorted to the police station, soil -ing the very air through which they passed by the horrible language with which they profaned the surroundings. FRANCEI AND HOME. The Vatican Adheres n to the Republie De spite the Monarchists. ROME, July 23.-In connection with the reception accolded Monday to Manager Ferrate, the new papal nuncio at Paris. by President Carnot, and the nuncio's an nouncement that he hoped to draw closer the ties existing between the vatican and France, it is learned that prior to his de narture from Rome Ferrata had a long con ference with the pope and Cardinals Itom polla and itotelli. As a result of these conferences he must have mapped out a line of conduct for application in France on the republican policy of Cardinal La Vigerle. The vatican is absolutely decided in spite of the threats and persuasions of the monarchists, to continue the pol icy of adhesion to the republic in order to restore France to religious and political pacification. A renewal of the triple alliance will only give strength to this evolution, which will marm a new departure in the international ecclesiastical policy of the holy see. 'The Irogramnme of Ferrata will consist in apply ing this principle to the constitutional right party of M. Pibu in the chamber of deputies; second in prevailing upon the bishops and the clergy to make a solemn act of adhesion; and, thirdly to constitute a vast Catholic union in the country out side of the old dynastic tarties. The vati- can wishes above all that the monarchial parties should not meddle in the move ments. EINGLANDL AT THE FAIRE. The Commissisoners Given a IReception by Lord Salisbury.
