SOME "YALLER SUPERS."
They Lead to the Capture of Four Young Men Who May be i Burglars. h One of Them XI Already Charged b With an Offense Like That. EX-Mayor Kleluasohmldt Denies Any Speo ial Interest In the Itairett Inquiry -The Commlttee's Report. - The reputation which the lielana police force has gotten for having a "stool nigeon" connected with it, has led to the I capture of a gang of young men, one of whom is now acoosed of burglary, and the others of whom are held on other grounds, and who are, the police think, suffiloently t dangerous to need watching. On Sunday i night some of the people in an upper Main street saloon heard some of the young men loudly berating one of their number as a "pigeon," because he refused to dispose of some "yaller supers." It may be interest- 1 ing to know that "yaller sanpers" in the lnegnage of the "profession," are gold watches. George Layton was the young man who was being denounced as a "stool pigeon." Sergeant Callahan and Police. men Vanasse and O'Connell were informed by those who overheard the talk of what was going on, and they found Layton and put him under arrest, At the city jail he said that the others wanted him to dispose of some "yeller supers," and when he demanded to see them first, I the gang set on him and beat him, and de nounced him as a "stool pigeon." A de scription of the others was obtained and they were arrested at different times dm ing the night. They gave their namee as Phil Dunn, Joe Dunn and Frank Clore. Joe Dunn, who was arrested along toward yes terday morning, was found to be protected from the weather by three pairs of trousers. The last pair reached in the skinning pro cess was thought to belong to E. D. Brooks, a barber, rooming in the Mt. Louis block. His room had been broken into, his trunk cut open, and some underclothing, a pair of trousers and some articlesof jewelry stolen. Brooks was sent for and identified the last pair of trousers taken off Joe Dunn as his own. Dunn was charged with burglary. and Judge Gage committed him for the ac tion of the district court last night. Phil Dunn, Layton and Clore are held as sune plaious characters. The four men are suns pected of various other jobs about town, and it is believed they have some goods cached away somewhere. A gun and sever al other articles were taken from a room in the Denver block recently, and this theft is laid to tse door of the gang just captured. All of them are young men, some of them not more than 21 years of ago. Ex-Mayor Kleinschmidt, speaking yester day of the fact that his name had been con nected with the Barrett inquiry, fully ex - lained the situation so far as he Is con cerned. He said Policeman Barrett came to him and asked him if anything had been missed from the Lehman premises, which were under the control of the bank. The officer, Mr. ](leinschmidt says, stated that he was on the track of some men whom he supposed to be petty thieves. This led to Barrett telling of the charges made against him, and also of the Fitzgerald matter. On hearing of the latter affair the ex-mayor save he thought it a strange condition of affairs and advised Barrett to speak to the county attorney about it. He himself men tioned It to Judge Hunt. Ex-Mayor Klein schmidt says he had no idea of or iticizing the administration of Mayor Curtin, nor in any way to do anything to seek to cast any reflections on the police departwent. lie is sorry that his name has been connected with the matter in any way. T'lhe council committee which investigated the charges against Barrett, and the Barrett charges against the remainder of the police force, will probably meet today to consider their report. It is not thought that the committee will make public any part of their report until it is handed to the city council on Tuesday night of next week. anlds Bros. have tjust received a handsome aesertmolt. of ladioes military and triple cato nlators.

A la ge force of men and wagons were en paged yesterday under the direction of the stre t commissioner olea ing the snow off Main street. 'I bhe thaw had made the heavy snow banks between the gutters and the car tracks easily handled, and the persistent efforts of the shovellers made quite an im tpression upon the mountains of snow on Main street, between Broadway and Sixth avenue. As soon as that part of the thor oughfare is cleaned the men and the teams will be taken to that part .of Main street aboy, Broadway. There is a double ad vantage in clearing Main street of snow at this time. One is that it makes travel easier for vehicles, and the other is that it prevents n whole lot of trouble in the event of too sudden a thaw.

A $10,000 Damage Case Against the Northern Pau'flo Rail road Non-Fuiltotd TIho nigh clihool tntengilelnuett to Ie btraighltened (Jut in Court--hlle Getes the finy. Tile case of Rliohad lockey against James B. Walker, city treasure-, was de oided by the supreme con t yesterday in an opinion rnudled by Associate Justice Hiar wood, and in which the other justices con curred. M,. Lockey brought the suit in the district court to restrain the treasurer forom proceeding with the sale of certain real estate to enforce the collection of taxes for 1891. He claimed that the levy was ir segular and that the city council did not meet as an equalization board. The city adopted the county assessment figures for its own purposes. This the supreme court declares to be legal and affirms the judg mentof the district court. The conclusion of the court is that the terms of the city charter are sufficient to authoripe the city to pursue the usual method as to the en forcement of the general tixes authorized to be levied; provideJ the proceedings pre scribed by or dinance in that regard are not repugnant to the provisions of the consti tlotion and general statutes of the state. "In our oe inion," reads the decision, "the action of the proper municipal authorities of the city of Helena in electing to take the assessment made by the county and state assessing authorities, under the provisions of the statute, as the'assessment for the levy of mdnicipal taxes, on property within said city, constituted a legal assessment; and that the levy of lawful taxes thereon by the city for municipal purposes, aocording to provisions of the charter, and ordinances of said city, was a legal levy. We and no pro visions of the constitution or statute, which either expressly or by implication, takes away the power of incorporated cities to levy and collect lawful taxes, in conformity with the provisions of the charter, and law ful ordinances passed thereunder." Opinions in the following eases were also delivered: W. H. Raymond vs. Thomas Wimsette. Raymond sought to obtain a decree estab lishing his right to the prior use of all the water of tweetwater creek in Madison county, and to obtain a pert etual injune tion against Wimsette. By the decree of the lower court Wimsette is not allowed to take more than forty-five inches of water t from the creek, which is affirmed by the I supreme court. Opinion by Justice liar wood.
