Prisoner George Townsend Makes a Break for Liberty, Leg.Iron and All. The Jar of a Hack That Run Up the Price of Real Estate. A New York Paper's style of Rllsing Up Chairman Carter Before the Recent Heavy Lanedslds When Overseer Adams started out from the city jail with the chain gang yesterday. George Towne, one of the men, refused to go to work. Adams tried to quell his re bellions spirit by dragging him out of the jail, through the hall and onto the street. Still the mon refused to go to work, and Adams put leg irons on him, after wrapping the chains around the telegraph pole in front of the marshal's offiee. There the ovpreser left Towne with the idea that he would repent and go to work. Clerk Poz naneki happened to look through the win dow of the marshal's office and saw that Towne had removed his overshoe and his shoe from one foot and had slipped the leg iron of. Pozuanski started out to prevent the man's escape. As be reached the post Towne was unwinding the chain wrapped around his hitching station. As he came around the poet for the last turn he met the clerk. Pornanski says he doesn't quite know what it was, but probably the man's flist, struck him in the eye and the top of the head, knocking off his glasses and nuining a new hat which he had just re ceived on an election bet. Before the clerk could recover his eyeglasses Towne had picked up the leg-iron and chain, and with the other iron atill about his ankle, started up West Main street and turned into Cutler. Poznanski ran Into the of floe, got a whistle and going out again, blew an alarm. Policeman Bossier an swered the call and started after the run away. He found Towne sitting down near the east side reservoir trying to remove the other leg iron. The officer took Towne back to the olty hall and the prisoner then concluded to go to work, which he did with the leg iron on. Pozuanski later preferred a charge of assault against Towne, George Towne was one of the four men arrested a few nights ago as suspicious characters. Three of them had been beating the fourth on the suspicion that he was a "stool pigeon." Nothing could be proved against Towne except that be had no visible means of support. He was charged with being a vagrant and fined $10. This he couldn't ,ay and he was working it out at the rate of $2 a day. His time would have been out to-day. The following story will offer some do cree of encouragement to any persons who may be burdened with large holdings of real estate, having no immediate prospect of unloading at a profit. The story is vouched for by Bishop Fowler, of the Meth odist Episcopal church. During the real estate boom at Los Angeles, Cal., an enter prising real estate agent purenaded a hack driver to purchase "a hole in the ground" for $1,000, by telling him that he would be enabled to sell it for him in a short time for $1,500. The hack driver became impa tient after a time and finally instructed the real estate agent to sell the lot for him for $1,000. The efforts of the real estate agent to secure a purchaser were of no avail. One evening the hack driver went to the depot and secured two passengers in the persons of a married couple from the east. As the hack approached the lot owned by the driver the gentleman remarked to the driver: "1 here is a fine location for a dwelling," and inquired if he knew who the owner was. The driver replied that he was the owner of the lot, The gentleman pas senger asked, "What is your price?" The driver replied $1,500. The hack jostled at the time and the gentleman understood him to say $15,000, and requested the pa paers to be brought to him the following day. He paid over the $15,000, and now the hack drivrr "is strictly in it." This is how one of the New York papers sized up Hon. Thomas H. Carter, in an arti cle on the various chairmen of the repub lican national committee, published a few days before the recent disaster: "He is a somewhat undersized Montana man, who looks like Uncle team just out of a ready. made clothing stoie. He has a stubby white goatee and a wandering right eye. He is a new man from a new state. What sort of a chairman Brother Carter will prove cannot be fairly told until after the presidential contest is over and the fruits of hise activity have been subjected to the crucial test of the balloting. But, at all events, he is a very different citizen from his republican predecessor of twenty years ago, Edwin D. Morgan. He is the first of a new line." oosi of Veterans' dance. Tuesday, Dec. 6.

Observing housekeepers quickly learn that Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder is far superior to other brands in the fact that they never fail to make the finest pastry, and if they wish to be economical they can dispense entirely with eggs and can use a less quantity of butter for shortening purposes. The advantage is not alone in the saving effected but in avoiding the trouble and frequently the great difficulty of securing eggs that are fresh. This is often a serious trouble. Cakes of various kinds from the informal Griddle Cakes to the stately Bride Cake can be made with Price's Cream Baking Powder, which insures light, sweet and hand some cakes; or when used for Griddle Cakes to be eaten hot enables their production in the shortest space of time, always tender and delicious. Dr. Price's is the only Baking Powder that contains the white of eggs. None so pure ! None so wholesome ! Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder is re ported by all authorities as free from Ammonia, Alum, or any other adulterant. In fact, the purity of this ideal powder has never been ques tioned. RECORD OF THE COURTS, A Ruling of the Department of Justice in a Murder Case, Garrity and Moran, for Mail Rob bery, to Plead This Morning. Lawson, the Photographer, Is Adjudged Insane and WVIII i:e sent to the Asylum. What seems to some attorneys to be a singular ruling has been made by the de partment of justice in the ease of Ah Let and Ah Doe, the Chinamen who are to be tried in the United States circuit court for the mu:der of a soldier at Fot Keogh. Since the murder several army officers and privates, who woe, witnesses, stationed at Fort Keogh, have gone to posts in Arizona, New Mexico and Ohio. The witnesses for the government have beenserved with sum mons at these places and will be in Helena on the trial at the expense of the govern ment. There is a provisiton in the federal statutes which gives this same privilege to defendants, but in this case Attorney-Gen eral Miller construes it so that the Coina men are not allowed the privilege. The ut torney-general writes as follows to George W. Sproul, clerk of the United States court: "In your letter of Nov. 17, 1892, you refer to the feet that two Chinamen indicted for the crime of murder have each made oath in accordance with section 878 Rt. S. and an order made that process issue at the ex pense of the United States. You refer to section 1,034 It. S. about the defense being entitled to lawful process of court to com pel witnesses to appear as is usually granted to compel witnesses to appear on behalf of the prosecution. You ask if under the two sections mentioned witnesses in Arizona, New Mexico and Ohio can be paid for at tendance upon court. Section 1,084, that gives to needy defendants process to com pel the appearance of witnesses refers to lawful witnesses whose expenses are paya ble; lawful witnesses for the defense are defined to be in section 878 witnesses 'that are within the district in which the court is held, or within 100 miles of the place of trial.' In such case the cost incurred by the process and the fees of witnesses are paid by the United States." The Chinamen have been in jail since last winter. OTHER UNITED STATES PItISONERS. Garrity and Morgan Ordered to Plead This Morning. Garrity and Morgan, who are Indioted jointly and separately for robbing mail poaches on the Northern Pacific railroad, were arraigned in the United States circuit court yesterday and ordered to plead to day. Morgan is the Butte locksmith alleged to have made the key with which Garrity opened the mail pouches. Collins, the young man who is to be tried for killing a man named Reed on the Crow reserva tion, will also plead to-day. "Medicine," the Crow Indian charged with stealing cattle from the Custer Cattle company, pleaded not guilty yesterday. His trial was set for Dec. 8. Lawson Adjudged Insane. A. Lawson, formerly in the photograph business in Helena and White Sulphur Springs, was pronounced insane yesterday in Judge Buck's court, and will be taken to the asylum at Warm Springs. The jury was L. Kelle", Dr. C. K. Cole and Dr. W. M. Bullard. Dr. Bullard told the court that the principal cause of Lawson's infirm ity was the closing out of his business in Helena a year ago, while he was at White Sulphur Springs. As the doctor gave this testimony Lawson cried. County Attorney Nolan asked him why he weat. Lawson said he was thinking about his general condition. He told the sheriff that lie was glad he was going to the asylum. His de rungement is of a mild form and it is thought that with proper treatment he will recover. Islrliet Court Business. A suit for divo:ce was filed yesterday by Mary Bell Drake against David Lawton Drake on the ground of desertion. They were married at Irwin, Gunnison county, Colorado, Dec. 6, 1883.
