There no doubt that he led her astray. It has n upposed all along that Olark was a rwegian, but it developed yesterday that is a Mexican and his name Emil guella. When Helen was put on the nd to testify in her. own behalf the court mn was packed, the spectators crowding close to the attorneys and defendant, great many of them were women. She Id her story without embarrassment and a clear voice. "I was 20 years old Aug. 1891 I have known Clark two yeass and elf, and met him flSet at my father's noh near Lockwood, Wash., about six lee from Rookford and twenty-two miles m Spokane Falls. He was working for ailroad contractor named Andrew Peter n. One Sunday I told mother that I nted to go to the church, wbhich was aboat o miles and a-half from our home. ther was away with the team and I Iked down to a neighbor's place, Mr. ickeon's, to go with him. Just as I got the gate Clark came along with a buggy d team. He knew me well enough to say ow do you do?' He asked me where I s going and I told him. He said I could with him, and asked me to wait until ut three o'clock when he would come her me. I promised to wait, but it got and I went home. About four o'clock ark came up to our house with his BERTHA HELEN FORILUND. ggy, just as mother and I were eating nob. He ate with us and went me. The next week he came to get iter and eggs. One day he said that I had no objections he would come the it Sunday and take me to church. I ld him he would have to ask mother. She id it was all right. She told me he was a jet, well-behaved fellow. I went to urch with him that Sunday, and there s a circus at Rookford, and as all the rle were going I went with them. It was ery place like that. I went with him out five months. Then he asked me to arry him. I told him I did not want to t married. He said 'Then you have been cling me.' I said no, that I had made him promise. Father spoke to me about it. d said he thought I liked Fuguella. I said id. He always behaved himself. I told ther I was not going to get married. ther said I was the only one he had left d that he and mother were getting old d that the rest of my sisters were mar , and he thought I should stay at home. ept going with him. I used to take little ips to Spokane to visit my sister. One day ark told me he thought he would quit terson. A year ago last June he induced me to n away with him. I told him I was going Spokane to work. He said he would quit etereon. At Spokane he came and visited e at the Eagle hotel. I told him he came often that I did not think it was proper, d he quit coming to see me. 1 worked at e hotel two months and went back home. e came there the first evening. He asked e if I was going out soon again. I said s. I knew some girls in Spokane and we are going to Cheney to work. Clark ked me how I would like to go to Mon na, and said I would get good wages ere. He told me it would only cost 2.50 to go to Missoula, and that I could t a good position, and that it was a better untry than Washington. He kept talk g about Montana and said if we went ere we could keep company as usual. I reed to go, but not to start with him. I Id him if father and mother should see us art they would think something was rong, He went to Spokane and I followed d went to the Bellevue hotel. I did not e him the first day and thought he had lied me. The next morning I met him cidentally as I was going out. He said: on have come.' I said yes. Well, we rolled around town that day. That even g he came to me and said: 'Do you know you are going to Montana you can't go girl's clothes?' It was about 10 o'clook d he was sitting in the room ith me. He said: 'You can to Montana and work, but you want to see anything you cant go in rl's clothes. I told him I could not agree that, that it would put me in trouble. e said no. He told me I had a boy's face d features. 'You can put on pants and as well as I.' I told him to give me four ye to think about it, and he waited. ell, he came to me and I put the pants on. he first thing he did that night was to ke me down to the Theater Comique. He t me to take two drinks and I got dizzy. never drank anything at home. Father ver kept it in the house. I went out of the omique to get into the air and he wanted e to go back to the show. I saw a police an and got afraid and run. Finally we ent back to the show'and staid there until out 12 o'clock and had a couple more rinks. I was pretty dizzy and did not new what I was doing. He took meoout f there and we wentdown to the hotel. The ext morning he asked me if I were sick, I id I was and wanted to go home. I asked im for my clothes. He told me I had no othes and said it would not be very pleas. nt for me to go back after being in the Com ue in boy's clothes. I was afraid and let go. Weatayed in Spokane until the next ay and the next morning took the train ad went to Missoula. That night at the hotel in Missoula man said to me, "Do you want job, young fellow?" He told me e wanted a totel clerk. It was a all place, the Grand Central. His name as Charlie Broadbent. I went to work for im. Qyk went tqWork for a steam fitter. worke tlhere two months, and then went work for Mrs. Klite, who kept the Mtar dging-house, as night clerk for three trnths. She had a young niece, and she f course thought I was a boy. We seed to ave conversations about different things, nd she thought I was trying to make up Ith her niece, and soe she flred me. I then eat to work for Charlie Tiano. of the All ations saloon, tending bar. That was last inter. Clark was in Anaconda working at a smelter. I got a letter from him, and nally he came back. Charlie Tiano sold t and Clark went to work for a colored 4not cmue ak not aAnrioj d, et !pation house The next nihbt he wee cu ,. ohes e me ai rat w t. o on.% m i Hd a had beer ganreur 1 saotl wonted goh e ,o io hi h a not fo, I w at ' her aie std ihe wa ot eea.

Wolf went to bed and she sat aow end read and was in bed by one o'olouk. She got up at six Clrk toame in about this time. he said he nuver oould come into the room unless she knew t. He told her to get up that he wanted breakfast and went to the Court dining room. At this time he gav her the watch afterwards ibrntified by Conductor Richard son as his. She left the house again between eight and nine o'clook. lark told her he was tired and was going to bed. She told him she had a sick headache and was going out to take a walk. In testifying she said she walked farther than she thought when arrested on the railroad track east of the respect to Marshal Fueor's testimony as to her confession she said she did not remember much. Lute of people came to see her at the oity hall. Many shook hands with her and said they were her friends. ihe had seen so many oficers she did not remember telling anything in particular. Bertha Helen Forslund was her true name. Clark christened her "Charlie Miller" when she out on the pants. While working as hoteclerk in Miuoula she got $45 per month. There was a dramatic seene when Clark was brought in to testify in behalf of the woman. He didnotgo on the stand in his own trial. He was taken in the stenographers room and searched, as a precautionary measure, befo testifying. No gun was found on ' him. He told the jury that Helen( Forelund was his room mate in Helena. On the night of the Richardson holdup he left her in the room at seven o'clock and did not see her until the next morning about six o'clock. Joe gave her the gold watch about seven that morning. During his cross-examination Mr. Nolan held up Richardson's watch and said to Clark, "Where did you get that watch?" 'Ihe court interfered by saying that Clark not being on the stand as a defendant it was the duty of the court to notify Clark that if as a witness his answer would tend to convict him of the crime of having robbed Ridhardson of the watch he need not answer the question. The judge, to sustain his ruling, read from Wharton's criminal evidence and stated that the wit ness could avail himself of the privilege ac corded him if he desired to. "Do you wish to answer the question?" said the judge. "I would rather not,". said Clark, as he turned toward Judge Hunt. He was shiv ering. The question was not answered. He was, however, compelled to answer that he had been convitoed of having robbed Robert Ray of his watch, having been tried for that crime. Another ruling upon the law of confessions was had when the county attorney sought to lay the foundation for impeachment by asking Helen as to her admissions to Officers Nicholson and Sims. The court held that under the decisions of the su preme court, in view of the hopes of favor end wo, ds of advice given to defendant by iergeant Nicholson, made to her just after her arrest, the confessions were inadmise- ble and that any other confessions made by lar about the same time to poiesons known to her to be officials were inadmis sible, unless it was shown that she was not induced by the hopes held out to her by Officer Nicholson. 'Ihe evidence was therefore excluded, which left the confes sion to Foray as the strongest evidence against her in the way of admissions made by her. Clark denied that his true name was Fn guella. Letters to prove this were ox cluded. He admitted that Emil was his middle name and that he signed his name Henry E. Clark. He is 24 years old and has been in Montana sixteen months, and Ssays he is a machinist, but never followed the business here. As he passed out of the court room he stepped over and shook Helen's hand and whispered something to her. The teals came to her eyes. She I cried for several minutes. Shen court adjourned at l ie p. m. the Sdefendant's attorney objected to the jury separating for the night. This made an evening session necessary so the closing arguments of the attorneys could be heard. Mr. Blackford said he considered the in structions of the court to be very fair. The G jury left the court room at ten p. m. and Judge Hunt said he would wait until eleven Sp. m. to receive their verdict, and if they I dd not agree by that time they would have G to remain out all night and bring in their I verdict this morning. T he jury agreed at 9:45 p. m. and brought in their verdict at 11 p. m, '1 he defendant Slooked as if a ton had been lifted off her when the verdict was read. She stood up, I bowed to the jury and said: "Gentlemen, I I thank you for your verdict." Two depu Ities took her to the city jail. There is c another charge against her, that of being accessory after the fact, on which she is I now held. I The jury were: David Merritt. Jacob I Fisher, John D. Wilson, B. L. Smith, J. B. rPresser, E. W. Break, Louis Stadler, H. M. SParohen. Thomas E. Goodwin, S. S. Cook, Charles Lehman, Charles A. Blackburn. AFTER THE VERDICT. Helen Forstund is Determined to Behave Herself Hereafter. Helen Forslund was very happy after she got back to the city jail, last night. There was only one thing that gave her any con cern and that was the prospect of another trial on the second complaiint against her. When told that she need not have any fear of ever-havmg to stand trial on that charge, she seemed considerably elated. "When I get out of this," she said, "I can promise that nothing I do will ever put me into a court or behind the bars again. What will I do with my boy's clothes? I'll take them home and burn them to make sure that no one else gets them. If I am freed all I have belongs to me. I have a little money nad will take a quiet room until I get enonIh money from home to go there. Then I will go there and stay there. "Clark did the square thing by me to-day in his evidence. He tried make the best case he could for me. 1 shall not forget him. If he had 'only let me keep on my womans' dress in my travels about with him and not made me put on that boy's dressl What I have seen in those clothee!" Court Notes. W.

There was quite a full representation yesterday when Judge Stephen DeWolfe. president of the board of World's fair managers of the state of Montana, called thht body to order. The meeting was held in Secretary Ramsay's offie and began at 2 p. m. Those present were: Phillip Lov ell, of Beaverhead; H. O. Chowen, of Cas cade; B. H.Johnson, OCuter; D. G. Browne, Choteau; Jas. G. Ramsay, Dawson; A. K. Yorkee, Gallatin; Thomas Joye, Jefferson; H. H. HI11, Lewis and Clarke; W. H. Suth erlin, Meagher; W. M. Blokford, Missoula; Allan R. Joy, Park; Stephen Do Wolfe, Sil ver Bow; and National Commissioners L. H. Hershfield and Dr. A. H. Mitchell. The most important business transacted was the reading of the report of Executive Commisesoner Bickford. Mr. Bickford said in part: "Immediately after my election to the office of exeoutive commissioner, correspon deuce was commenced with the commis sioners of the respective counties to ascer tain the views entertained by them gen erally as to the character of our exhibit and the variety and extent thereof. From the correspondence it has been ascertained that Montana's exhibit will consist Of minerals, ores and the ore products, including placer gold; farm products of an almost endless variety; stock, and the many varieties of wools produced in this state, as well as for est products, timber and grasses indigenous to the state." As to the interest being taken in the fair generally. Mr. Bickford says that all the con4missioners are taking an active and general interest in the matter, as are also the business men of the state. "The work of collecting the exhibit," says Mr. Bick ford, "cannot be commenced with any de gree of activity until the summer of 1892; but in the meantime every opportunity should be embraced for learning the where abouts of the exhibits, making preparation for the planting of agricultural products, with the expressed idea of having the results unusually attractive and satisfac the report then refers to a visit to Chi cago in September last. It was fpond that the site originally selected by Commissioner Hershfileld for Montana had been given to Iowa, and Montana given a site near the state of Idaho and this site is much inferior to the original one. A vigorous, but useless protest was made, and Mr. Bickford says the thanks of the " board are due Messrs. Mitchell and Hershfield for the vigorous and manly light they made. Reference is made to the plan or . C. Palmer for a mountain in miniature, show ing a mine in actual operation as a part of the Montana exhibit. W. H. urnham, the chief architect of the world's fair, however, announced himself as utterly opposed to the scheme, saying it would mar the ap pearance of the grounds. Dr. A. H. Mitch e I has .,plied to the director general for space the various buildings as follows; mines and mining, 8,000 square feet; agriculture, 8,000 equarefeet; stook-raising, 8,000 square feet; torestry and forest products, 1,000 square feet. Mr. Biokford also refers to the matter of a joint building with Idaho, and announces that the latter state is in favor of the scheme. As to freight rates on the Montana exhibit, Mr. Bickford says that in an interview with S. L. Moore, gen eral freight agent of the Northern Pacific railroad, that gentleman said that some uale would be adopted which would apply to all the states through which his road passed. He intimated that a limited amount of freight would be carried free of charge, providing the road should not be called upon to return the same free of charge. Mr. Moore asked Mr. Bickford if some arrangement could not be made with the exhibitors to turn their display over to the railroad company at the end of the fair, to be used in an exhibis on wheels to be run by the Northern Pacific railroad through the eastern, central and southern states. Mr. Bickford advocates a special feature in the Montana building in the way of a collection of the different wild birds and animals found in the state. He also favors nn exhibit of school work, and suggests that the State Educational association will be willing to prepare this exhibit, and only call upon the board of managers for suffi cient money to defray actual expenses. The first contribution made by Montana to the fair is three columns, to be used in the forestry building. The columns were fur nished by the Blackfoot Milling company, and are of tamerck, pine and cedar. On motion of Mr. Hershfleld it was de oided to have 2,800 copies of Mr, Bickford's report printed, to be generally circulated. On motion of Mr. Lovell, Messrs. Mitchell, Hershfield and Bickford were constituted a committee to correspond with Director General Davis and the board of control in the matter of the site for the Montana building. The name of Mrs. J. E. Rick ards was added to the list of lady man agers. Among other business transacted was the reading of the report of the secretary, and the reception and flting of various uropo sitions. Among these was one Irom John Gilman, asking the endorsement of the board for his United States Fair exhibition. Also one from Soenie Artist Clausen, in re lation to his panorama to consist of Mon tana scenes to be displayed at the fair. Both of the propositions have heretofore been published in full in Tax INDEPENDENT. W. A. Clark presented, through President DeWolfe, a plan for showing the Butte mining district by meaps of a relief map. The matter was referred to the committee on mines and mining. The following architectural frms pre sented plans for the Montana building at the World's fair: Wallace & Thornburg, Paulsen & Lavelle. (two sets), N. J. Mc Connell, J. L. La Driere, Galbraith & Ful ler, of Missoula, and Meyer & Thori, of St. Paul. They were referred to the build ings committee, which will probably report to-day. The members of the board were very much pleased with a display of apples and grapes grown in Missoula county. Ihe ap ples came from W. B. Harlan, of Como, Montana, and D. O. Base, of Stevensville. while A. G. England, of Missoula, raised the grapes. There was also a display of sandstone from Great Falls. The board will be in sessionmagain this morning. John WV.
