SECOND TIME ON TRIAL
Mrs. Barnum's Case Comes 'Up
Again in the United States
Court.
The Jury Were Unable to Aireo
on the Former
Hearing.
The Defense Claim That There We a Con
spiraey Formed to Ruln the
Defendant.
Mre, Amelia D. Barnum, formerly posts
mistress at Mann, Cascade seuaty, was
placed on trial yesterday for the second
time in the United States circuit court oan
the charge of robbing the mails pausing
through her office. She is a little over 40
years of age but does not look it. Peter M.
Baum, of Great Falls, and 0. 0. Newman
and J. A. Walsh, of Helena, are her attor
neys. Assistant United States Attorney
John McDonald conducted the case for the
government. The indictment charges Mrs.
Barnum with openiag a registered package
addressed to W. W. Davis at Monarch, and
signed Henry Guns, and taking from it a
two dollar bill. The prosecution are trying
to show that prior to Aug. 26, 1891, there
were frequent complaints of loss of mail
matter in Cascade county on the line pf the
Mann post office. Postal Inspector C, E.
Sackett went to Armington where he mailed
a decoy letter registered for Monarch. Mann
and Ribbey were the only two offices be
tween Armington and Monarch. The let
ter was carried by the coach, but the
money, it is claimed, never reached Kibbey.
After the pouch passed through the Mann
office it contained the letter, it is alleged,
but not the money. Inspector Bsackett says
he and a deputy marshal went to Mann,
where they found the $2 bill under the
mattrass of Mrs. Barnum's bed.
The defense claim that a conspiracy was
formed, having for its purpose the ruin of
Mrs. Barnum, and that the conspiracy re
sulted in the indictment. The defense
also expect to prove that ever since there
was a postoffice at Mann the mails have
been robbed, and before Mrs. Barnam be
came postmistress. Because of these piior
robberies, Mrs. Barnum was selected out of
all in the locality to take charge of the
mails at Mann. The robberies continued
and the people became exercised and com
plaints were frequent. Sackett was sent to
find out where the trouble was. Hestopped
at Mrs. Barnum's house and consulted' her
about the irregularities and invited her to
assist in locating the trouble. The defence
claim that the $2 bill was not found under
the mattress. They say that when Mrs.
Barnum was confronted by the officers she
brought them a box in which she kept the
postoffioe funds, her own money, and that
of the stage and express com
panies. The defence will try
to prove that the $2 was in
the box. It is claimed by the defense that
on the night of the robbery a man came to
the Barnum ranch and slept in a room
twelve feet from the loose mail, and con
venient to the back door of the house.
The man had never been seen in the neigh
borhood before. About 11 o'clock that
night Mrs. Barnum and her husband heard
a wagon pase up the road and stop. After
awhile it came back. They expect to prove
that in the wagon was the former postmas
ter at Mann and that when the stranger
got up next morning and paid his bill be
did so with the $2 bill offered in evidence.
Ex-Inspector hackett was on the stand all
day and testified as on the former trial and
as outlined by the prosecution. The box
used by Mrs. Barnum was put in evidence.
It is a small square box about the size used
for putting base balls in. Sackett was
closely cross-questioned by Attorney Baum.
Mrs. Barnum had a seat near her attorneys
and listened closely to the testimony. Her
husband and two young daughters are with
her. One of her sons was tried last Decem
her in the same court for mail robbery and
acquitted. On her former trial the jury
disagreed. There is a second indictment
against Mrs. Barnum for mail robbery,
found by the late grand jury. She is on
trial before the following jury: R. S.
Hale, J. E. Norris, E. C. Babcock, O. J.
Holmes, W. H. Frank, H. H. Aebby, O. A.
Sonthmayd, W. DeLacy, J. M. Dutton, F.
L. Fiest, O. Allen. H. Adami.
IN THE SUPREME COURT.
Judgment Affirmed in O'Donnellvs. Nel
son Bennett et. al.
Associate Justice Dewitt delivered the
opinion in the case of Charles O'Donnell,
appellant, vs. Nelson Bennett et. al. The
action was brought, says the court, to re
cover for cutting and hauling logs. A ques
tion has arisen as to whether the action wee
upon a special contract, or upon quantum
mernit. Upon entertaining the view that
we take of the case, a discussion of that
matter does not seam to be required. The
plaintiff alleges that he cut and hauled for
the defendants 469,000 feet of logs at the
price of $4.75 per thousand, amounting in
all to $2,227.75. That of this amount the
defendants have paid him $1,841.61 leaving
S balance due of $886.14. The defense
set up in the answer is that the plaintiff did
not out or haul any logs for defendants
either for an agreed price or otherwise.
The defense made upon the trial was that
whatever work the plaintiff did. this work
was done for one Thomas Bocarde.
The situation, as the defendants
claim, was that Bocardo was
running a saw mill; that he was indebted to
the defendants in a considerable sum; that
defendants had a chattel mortgage on, Bo
cards's saw mill plant, to senure the lame
and that defendants, in order that Bocards
might operate his saw mill and so make
moneysto pay his debt to them, they stood
behind him to such extent as sureties, in
this, that they cuaranteed persons dealing
with Bocarde, and that plaintiff had his
contract with Booarde for hauling and de
livering logse, and that defendant's only re
lation to the transaction was to guarantee
plaintiff's pay from Bocarde and that they
actually paid him on orders isautd by Bo
cards. The plaintiff's position, on the
other hand, was that Bocarde was simply a
foreman, or boss, or manager for the de
fendants. O'Donnell got a verdict for $60
and that two notes of $75 each given by
him to defepdants should be cancelled. Ifs
moved fora new trial which was denied.
The judgment and the order overruline the
motion for a new trial is affirmed.

The Men Who Worked for the MllI

by Neighbors.
Sixty Citizen. Go Down to Craig
to Meet 0. A. Broadwater and
A. W. Lyman.
Another Enthusiastle Crowd, With a
Dead, Meet the party at the Mon.
taei. Central Depot,
It is very seldom that two men aie given
cnoh iadisputable evidence that their
fellow citizens appreciate their etorts in
behalf of the whole comtupity, as was
furnished Col. 0. A. Broadwater and A. W.
Lyman yesterday. Both gentlemen began
active work in Washington four months
ago looking to the establishment of a cen
tral military post near Helena. Military
men who have visited Helena in the past
few years favored the idea, and, when it
began to assume tangible form, gave it their
active aid and endorsement. Without this
aid securing the fort would have been im
possible, but because of it, it was not
assured. The members of congress most
be brought arpund to the views of the mili
tary, and that was the task Moeuars. Broad
water and Lyman undertook. They had
the active quoport is their misiion of the
Montana delegation, and ex-Gov.S.T.Hanser
event several months in Washington and
he talked to his friends, while Russell B.
Harrison also used his influence in the
same behalf. But with all this the fight
was a hard one, and the people of Helena
fully recognized it. They knew the present
house was going to be an economical one,
and after the news came that the senate
had passed the bill, it was felt that the bat
tle had just began.
There were three bills before the house
for the establishment of military posts.
They were all of similar tenure in so far as
related to donations of land for their estab
lishment. The first to come upin the hone9
was the one nutting a fort at Little Rock,
Ark. The bill, as passed, gave Little Rock
$70,000 worth of government land in the
city in exchange for 1,000 tores for the fort,
but made no appropriation for its construc
tion. The next post bill contemplated the
establishment of one in the vicinity of
Highgate, Vt, This was killed in the house.
Both of these bills were favored unani
moualy by the honadoonmittee on military
affairs, had both recommended by the war
department. Last Monday the bill estab
lishitg a military post near Helena, and
appropriating $100,000 to construct it, came
up in the house. Holman, of Indiana,
made a hard fight against it, but it passed,
there being but thirteen negative votes.
Then it went to the sepate, and on Wednes
day it passed that body, so that all it needs
now is the president's signature to become
a law. This it will receive.
The people of Helena have been watch
ing the struggle all the time, realizing that
enccess meant great things for the city.
They promised themselves two months ago
that if the bill passed, the gentlemen in
charge of it at Washington should have a
fitting reception. When it did they imme
diately planned to keep their word, and
yesterday they did'so. Last tiaturday W.
E. Cox broached the advisability of engag
ing a special train Monday and going down
the road to meet Col. Broadwater and Mr.
Lyman. The idea proved a popular one,
and yesterday it was carried out. The
train was late, but at three e'clock sixty
gentlemen, representing every interest in
the town, boar ded a special car, and went
down to Craig. The party was made up of
bankers, merchants, lawyers, doctors,
publishers, real estate detlers, and politi
ticjane, though there was no politics in
it. On arriving at Craig the special train
was.put on a siding to wait for the regular
train. Going down each man paid $2.60 as
his fare. Before the regular tsain arrived a
telegram was received by General Freight
and Passenger Agent Langley, who was
with the party, saying there would be no
charge for the special. Just as soon as he
could be heard, President Wm. Muth, of
the Board of Trade, made a motion that
the money paid for fare be set aside as the
nucleus of a fund to purchase a fitting tes
timonial for Col. Broadwater. Mr. Lyman
and Mr. Harrison. It was carried with a
shout. When the regular train pulled out
of Craig the Helena special formed part of
it, and Messrs., Broadwater and Lyman
were in it. Handshaking, mutual congrat
ulations and an exchange of news made the
time pass rapidly until the party arrived at
the Montana Central depot.
Quite a. number of gentleman were pre
vented from going down on the special,
and they determined to meet the train at
the denot. The Capital City band was en.
gaged, and about seven o'clock it headed a
party ef about 160 who went to meet the
train. There was a banner on which was
inscribed, "The Fort Is Ours. Welcome
Home." It was just 7:20 when the train
pulled in, and amid the playing of the
band and the cheers of the crowd, the long
looked for travelers alighted. There was a
general bandshaking, but both gentlemen
looked tired and worn out, and In a few
minutes each was on his way home. Then
a procession was formed, and headed by
the hand the p rt went uptown and dis
banded at The Helena hotel. The recep
tion was a spontaneous tribute by the peo.
pie of Helena and was dons to show in a
slight degree their appreciation of the
work done at Washington.

bonnet on the counter, in front of the suave
