A LETTER AS A CODIClL
An Important Decision by the Su. prenme Court on a Billings Will Case, Motion to Dissolve the Attaoh ments Against Greenhood, Bohm& Co The Grand Jury Takes a Look at the High School Butlding-Other Court Heuse News. The most important of the decisions handed down by the supreme court yester day was that prepared by Justice DeWitt in the ease of Ida L. Barney against George M. Hays and Henry W. iowley. Ida L. Barney is a daughter of the late Chas. E. Barney, of Billings, by his first wife. Bar ulay made a will in June, 1889, the contents of which do not appear in the records of the case. On August 9, 1890, he married Miss Ellen C. Brodie. iine days later he wrote to lion. E. N. Harwood, one of the a preme court judges, requesting him to change or modify the will of 1889, or to write a codicil. In this letter he expressed a desire that his wife should have some thing. Barney died in October, 1890. The will of 1889, with the letter requesting that it be changed, were filed for probate, the latter document as a codicil. Judge Mil burn, of Yellowstone county, tried the case. The jury found that the letter to Justice Harwood acted at a codicil. Judge Milburn, however. set the finding aside and decided that the letter was not a codicil to the will; that the will was revoked by the subsequent marriage and was not repub lished by the letter; and that neither the will nor the alleged codicil should be admitted to probate. This de cision would have given the bulk of the estate to the daughter Ida. The executors of the will appealed. Jus tice Dewitt, in the opinion, coincided in by Chief Justice Blake, says it was, not dis puted that the original will was properly executed, and before marriage was a valid one. It is what is know as a holographic .~nI ,l,. 4,h ,, ¢nv, Arn unhytha tnatatnr in his own handwriting, and requiring no witnesses. The opinion further says that it is conceded that the marriage revoked the will. But, if the letter was a codicil, it republished the will and the two documents constitute the last will and testament of Barney. The whole gist of the matter, the opining says, is whether the letter was a codicil. The jury said it was. The court set their finding aside. It was held on the one side that the finding of the jury was a conclusion of law and the court was not bound by it. On the other hand it was held to be a conclusion which bound the judge. The supreme court says no one can read Barner's letter to Justice Harwood and be in doubt as to what he intended should be the disposition of his property as to his wife. The judgment of the Yellow stone county court is reversed, the cause remanded, and the district court directed to admit the will of 1889 with the letter as codicil, the two writings together constitu ting the last will of Charles E. Barney. Justice Harwood did not sit in the case. The case of H. A. Milot against Joseph Reed was another important decision handed down. In September, 1890, Milot bought some real estate in Castle from Reed. There was a clause in the deed to protect Milot against any claims on the property. The property at that time was subject to $60.59 for taxes, which it was claimed was an encumbrance, and which Milot had to pay. He brought suit for the amount. Reed interposed a demurrer, which was overruled and judgment was entered against him. The case was ap pealed. The opinion of the supreme court. prepared by Justice Harwood, holds that the warranty to the deed was sufficient to compel Reed to answer for the taxes on property, and affirms the judgment of the lower court. A third opinion by the court was merely on a unestion of practice. It was in the case of Peter Arnold against John Sinclair. Arnold claimed to have been Sinclair's partner in the liquor business at Great Falls, from August, 1887, until Februasy. 1891, and asked a division of the profits, which was refused. Sinclair claimed that Arnold was only a barkeeper at a salary of $100 a month. The jury found that there .was a partnership and the court ordered a decree accordingly. An appeal was taken. Arnold's attorney moved to dismiss the ap peal on the ground that no judgment had been entered. The supreme court holds that the judgment was tinal, and that the appeal lies. It now comes up whenever the parties are ready to argue it. They Want the Attachment Dissolved. An oral motion was made before Judge Hunt in the district court yesterday to dis solve the attachments against the suspended firm of Greenhood, Bohm & Co. 'The at tachments were laid by the Merchants bank and other creditors. 'Tho ground on which the dissolution is asked is that the claim on which the attachment wias laid was secured in the deed of assignment. The law requires that wihen an attachment is laid the affidavit Imust show that the claimed is not secured by mortgage, lien or other pledge. The firm assigned before the attachment was laid. Tie question pre sented to Judge Hunt is whether the claims, being included in the assignment, were secured by that instrument in ouch a way as to debar them comm~nin as attachments, The matter will be argued on Saturday. Criminal Cases on Appeal. The supreme court yesterday continued for the term the arpealisof William Sheorin and Herman Levy. both of Butte. Shetrini was convicted of shooting ra faro dealer. He had lost $250i at the game and dermandred that thire dealer give him back $.200. On getting a refusal bothr men turned loose their artille:y and shot each other several times. bheerin ir now at Deer Lodge. Levy was convicted of unnring a ''sure thing'' faro game at the Butte fair grounds. iHe is out on bail penditng the decision of his appeal. The motion to dismiss the appeal of W. IH. Linebarger was set tor i hearing March 1. 1.Linetbarler shot a man in lFergsi county during a quarrel over ii water right. He is in Deer Lodge penitentiary. Investigating the hioolo Board. The plesence of Secretary Ellis, of the school board, Architect Paulsen, designer of the high school, and Suplerinteindcnt of Construction Williams, in the corridor of the court house outside the grand jury room yesterday, indicated that the affairs of the trustees were undergoing ant over hauling. The grand jury held two asesion., taking a recess for dinner. They also took a look at the new high school. District Court Proceedings. Samuel Hammerslaugh et al., and Hannah Blrock et al., vs. B.

A letter received in this city, says the Butte Miner, from Superintendent Olark, of the Poorman mine, gives further partio. alars of the new find lately discovered in sinking the shaft at a depth of seventy feet below the 500 level. He states that the new vein has been out through and is found to contain three feet of first-class ore. It only pitches ten feet in the 100 and runs parallel with the old vein about twenty feet north of it. The old ve in was out through at the 400 level, but no arose. out was ran north of it. The letter fur ther states that a committee of Idaho men are going immediately to Omaha and St. Paul to confer with railroad authorities in both cities on freight matters with a view to getting some relief from the present onerous charges to which the Cour d'Alene miners are subjected. Choteau's Iron Mines. Wm. R. Ralston, the owner of the iron deposts near Choteau city, was in Great Falls the other day, and in talking of his property said the find consisted of iblanket lode of magnetle iron covering eight miles square, on an elevated plateau, or sixty four square miles of territory. The great lode is situated nine miles west of the town of Choteau, and, as far as known, covers the area of ground named. The top of the lode is just under the grass roots and main tains its horizontal position for a distance of eight or ten miles, when it dips to the westward and surface indioatiohs disap pear. The lode varies from two feet to thirteen feet in thickness and rests upon easily displaced sand. No drillingor blast ing is required to mine the ore. It readily yields to the pick and is taken off in layers or sheets from two inches to one foot in thickness. Mr. Ralston has sent samples of the ore to several iron-workers in the east, among whom are Carnegie. Phipps & Co. The latter's analysis records from 2G3. per cent to 72 per cent pure iron and three per cent of platinum. The returns from the others vary but slightly from these figures. The Carnegie firm informed Mr. Ralston that the ore is worth $4.50 per ton, at the pres ent low rate of iron, to any works which handle and reduce iron ore. Minini Locations. Notices of location have been filed at the county recorder's office as follows: C. W. Darling and others, Tacoma lode. Nicholas Hilgor and others, eighty acres placer. Sterhen Darby, twenty acres placer. A. Majors, Eagle lode, Green Horn dis trict. Ralph F. Thompson, five acres for mill site. 13. F. Forbes and C. D. Thomas, two claims of twenty acres each.

The New York Bankers Not P.e. pared to Proffer Assuranoes. to Builders. Thirty Thousand Dollars Already, Pledged In Castle for a Rallroad From Iel ena to That Place. There has been a great deal of specula tion as to just what the sale of the Cumber land mine to New York capitalists meant, the announeoment of its consummation be ing a surprise to almost every one. It has been openly announced in Great Falls that the sale meant that the Cumberland cons pany would actively support a proposition looking to the building of a railroad from Castle to Neshart, as against a line from Castle to Helena. Those who are ins.a po sition to know have doubted the truth of this sweeping assertion, and alleged that the sale only gave the Great Falls people a chance to make a noise, of which they were not slow to take advantage. That this was the correct view is confrmed by C. O. Par sons, the representative of J. Kennedy Tod & Co., of New York. the purchasers of thM Cumberland. He was asked by a reporter of the Castle Tribune, "What are the pros pects of Castle acquiring shortly a rail road ?" and in repiy said that the "camp needed a road very badly but he doubted if a road would be built into Castle on any assurance that the Cumberland company was at present able to give." When asked "which load the company would favor?" He answered, "I think that when the dif ferent mines of Castle were in a position to guarantee a traffic the shortest pull would get away with the persimmon. If it could be shown that it was to the interest of the company to patronize the Helena road, it would undoubtedly receive it. I do not understand why the Livingston project is meeting with so little favor at present. There 'is much that might be said in favor of that route. As for the Neihart proposition I can say but little. Mr. Hill was a crank on low grades, And unless he could build a road which could be operated better and cheaper than any other road in the west it would have no attractions for him. No survey as yet had been made, and no one can say whether the road was feasible or not." C. O. Severance, who engineered the sale, and who has been elected president of the Cumberland company, in an interview in the same issue of the Tribune, confirms Mr. Parsons. Regarding the sale and the intentions of the company, he said: "By the recent sale of a large proportion of the stock of the larger holders of the Cumberland Mining & Smelting company, the control of it passed into the hands of J. Kennedy Tod & Co., of New York City, who are among the strongest bankers on Wall street, and who control a practically unlimited capital. What the future policy of these gentlemen will be in regard to Castle can be deter mined only after a careful and thorough investigation of the resources of this dis trict is made. But owing to the difficulty of determining the resources in the present undeveloped state of the properties heoe, it is only fair to say that we are not at present in a position to proffer any assurance what ever to a railway, unless we may-as we would like to believe-rely upon the precious promises of our Helena friends that they are 'en rapport' with some vague and mys terious power in the East which will build us one-for a consideration. "At the regular meeting of the directors of the Cumberland Mining & Smelting Co., which was adjourned from the 15th until to-day (Wednesday, the 17th,) the follow ing voluntary resignations of directors were accepted, namely: B. I. Sherman, Len Lewis and E. J. Anderson; also T. S. I sh as president and general manager, and B. I. Sherman as vice president. In place of the three persons that resigned from the board of trustees, J. Kennedy Tod, Chas. B. Carr and H. H. Severance were elected to fill the vacancies. At the meeting of the reorganized board Chas. E. Severance was elected president, J. Kennedy Tod vice president, and A. J. Hunexe, general man ager. "For the immediate present the policy of the mine will not be changed, notwith standing the change of officers, and both stacks of the smelter will continue to run under the able and in every respect excellent management of Mr. Gordon, whose record at Castle has been as honorable to himself as it has been profitable to the Cumberland Mining and Smelting company. Upon the result of development the operation of this plant must largely depend. It will deter mine, as before stated, the policy of the compnany with regard to this mine in the more remote future." It will be seen from the above that so far as the Cumberland company is concerned, the road that gets into Castle will get the business, and whether it go from Helena or Nerhart, it need expect no aid from that source. Meanwhile Helena has pledged $150,00D for building a line, and White Sulphur about $35,000. In each of these cities the amount will be largely in creased. Castle, meanwhile, is not idle, as the following from the 'Iribuno proves: "Last evening a letter was received from James King, of Helena. the chairman of the Castle committee that was appointed to riomote the building of a railroad between Helena and Castle. 'I he Helena gentle man announces the Castle Land conmnany's contribution to this cause will be .,l:ttlr00 and that of the Castle Water and Power company $5,000. In addition to this large amount it is expected that at least $6,000 will be subscribed by the merchants and property holders in the town. When most of the persons are seen by the committee that own large interests in the leading min ing p oporties of this district, it is thought that Castle's subscription to this noble ob ject will be very creditable." The Helena committee is yet at work so liciting subscriptions, and will not stop un til every person in the town has had a chance to unbscribe. )liei ot I.ave St: l'iier're hospital lto strugglo alone unaideda in itstlults rt., care' for tl r 'ocrk alt lOe. ituti.

TIMBER CUTTING CASES. Inspector Haley Talks of the Trial of Stone at Boise City. M. J. Haley, special timber agent of the general land office, with headquarters in Helena, has arrived home from Boise city. He went there as a government witness in a criminal action the government brought against a man named Stone, who was charged with unlawfully cutting timber from the public land. The case lasted two weeks, and resulted in an acquittal. Speaking yesterday of the reports of the trial published in the Spokane papers Mr. Haley said that in several instances they did not do the fair thing. One instance he cited was when they published a report to the effect that the arrest and trial of Stone was the result of the efforts of the Black foot Mining and Milling company, who had urged Commissioner Carter to take this course. Stone gave as a reason for this that he competed with the Western com pany in the sale of lumber. Mr. Haley says the facts are that the investigation of the Stone case was begun before Carter went into office, and that he had nothing to do with its inception. As to the talk be tween himself and Stone's counsel, in which Haley called the attorney a liar in open court, he said the lawyer gravely in sulted him, he forgot where he was for the instant, and replied to him. "There would be more convictions in cases of this sort," concluded Mr. Haley, "if the penalty was not so severe." A sentence of guilty car ries with it both fine and imprisonmenit. Fresh Halibut.
