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
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.

Main Street Again IRtetlnning to Take On a
IHulinesa Look.
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.

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."
