The Collins murder ease was not sub milled to the Jury yesterday as expected. All the evidence was in early in the after noon ahd the attorneys commenced their argurnente to the jury. Henry C. Smith. who closed for the defense, had not finished at five o'clock. He will conclude his arga. meat this morning and will be followed by Distrlot Attorney .Weed. F. K. Jackson, who was putting up tent stakes near the tepee where Reed was shot by Collins, testi fledthat he saw Collines come out of the tepee flourishing a revolver and exolaiming, "Get oat of my way. I am Black Jack the terror of the Rookies." On cross.examination the witness said he did not see a horse whloh stood near by and went on pulling out tent pine after he heard the shots fired. Andrew Collyer testified that he saw Reed pick up a "gun" after dropping it out of his pooket and that when he did so Rsee muttered something. He also heard him say that he guessed he would have to make a killing that day. The wit ness then went over and said in Collin's presence, "'Sombody better look out for that man Reed or they will get hurt." Ed. Wells testified to threats and abusive lan guage by Reed. W. H. Steele testified as to the position of the two wounds, one in the neck and the other in the head. Charles Ford testified that he was in Keyser's cook shanty; that Reed came in the shanty and gave him a drink of whisky out of a bottle. Reed then made threats against the "Long Kid." Agent Wyman, of the Crow agency, testified twat Reed bore a good reparation. Distriot Attorney Weed made a strong plea for the conviction of Collins and brought all his persa.v powers to bear on the jury. He was followed by Miles Cavanaugh, Jr., who is assoiatsed with Henry O. Smith for the defense. Mr. Smith's main line of argument was the theory of self-defense. He will be followed by the district attorney to-day, when the ease will be given to the jury. CHARGES OF CRtUELTY. Lena Latch Makes Some Serious Allega tions Against Her Husband.

He was a vete an in the war, serv ing in a Michigan regiment for four years, and was a member of Wadsworth Post, of this city.

Iwo of these, a mar led daaughter and a son, live In Michigan. Mrs. Simons an¢ the other children are at the agency. Mr. Bimons was in Helena about a month ago and spent an hour or more with his boy hood companion, Clerk 'looker.

The programme offered by the Helena Athletic club this evening promises to be the finest ever seen in Montana. Aside from the main event between the welter I weights, Persell and Burns, there is to be a wrestling match between Charles Eyeton, the champion lightweight of Australia, and Glitz, "The Little Demon," who came into prominence by throwing Matsada Sorakichi, "The Jap." This will be fol lowed by a four round go between Phil Casey and Tommy Morran. Burns and Persell will weigh in at the ringside in the presence of the spectators at 9:45 p. m. Both are under forfeit to weigh in at 150 I pounds or less. Yesterday. Persell was at 146k, and Burns at 1483. 'They are in the pink of condition, and as hard as nails. Persell skipped the rope 1,532 times yesterday without stopping. The men are i very clever and it will undoubtedly be one I of the prettiest contests ever seen in the state and may take twenty-five rounds for a decision. Secretary Dillon has received a letter from Secretary MoLung, of the Cal fornia Athletic club, asking him to per sonally furnish an account of the contest and of the winner's style. Tlfis information is wanted with a view to getting on a match with the winner and one of the Australians now in San Francisco. Persell wants to meet Barron, the Australian who whipoed Dobbs. In the contest to-night Freeman and Gallagher, of Butte, will be behind Burns, and Ike Hays, Sid Huntington and Bill Keogh will do the honors for Persell.

Wil Surly Be Ample Space for the State's Eiueitional Exhibit. Work of the Cowboy C*tst to Be Shown in the Moattnur Building. The Superb Mineral Display--What the Women Are Dotn - -Work of Beaverheat Ladles. An official iroular somes from Ohlcago that will be received with a great deal of pleasure by the educators of Montana. It is to the effect that the World's fair people have arranged to give the educational exhibit all the space it was originally intended it should hayr. About two months ago it was discovered that the space originally as slgned to the educational department had been given to the ethnological, and that left the educators in the cold. Now that the affair has been adjusted, the Montana peo ple who have interested themselves in the educational exhibit f om this state can go to work with renewed vigor, knowing there will be ample room for the display from Montana. Sedretary Ramsay, of the board of World's fair managers, has received two splendid piotures from a gentleman at Chinook. They are loaned to the Montana commissioners, and will be hang in the Montana building. They are both the work of the cowboy artist Russell. One represents an Indian village. In the fore ground a buck sits in the opening of a tepee smoking, while his squaw is stretching and pinning to the ground the hide of an ani mal. The coloring is bright and the picture a natnral one. The other represents a buffalo hunt by redskins. It also is true to nature. The owner has refused $1,000 for the two pictures. The secretary also received yesterday nineteen boxes of grain and a sack of ore from Cozrmissioner Sutherland, of Meagher county. Mr. Sutherland has notified the secretary that there are 1,400 pounds of ore and 2.000 pounds of grain at Townsend for the Montana display. He has been re quested to send both lots to Helena. There is every reason to believe that Montana's mineral exhibit at Chicago will equal that of any other state exhibiting and will be excelled by none. Chief Skiff, of the mines and mining department, has done all he could for Montana. The space assigned Colorado, Mr. Skiff's own state, is next the main entrance to the building,and Montana comes next to Colorado. The mine owners have responded nobly to the demands of the board of managers and the exhibit Montana will make will be a sur prise to thp people of the state. To Prof. Traphagen, of the college of Montana, has been assigned the duty of classifying and cataloguing the mineral display for this state and he will begin the work next Mon day. Mrs. L. E. Howey, of the Woman's auxiliary board, is leaving nothing undone to assure a good diselay by the women of the state, and she is being enthusiasti cally aided by the ladies generally through their county associations. These county societies hold meetings regularly every month and send to Mrs. Howey re ports as to the progress they are making. The ladies of the Beaverhead society are going to have a good display from their sec. tion. Mrs. B. Z. 'I homas, in a recent re port to Mrs. Howey, says the Beaverhead ladies have decided to furnish the panel for the Woman's building and $25 for the ohilds' home at the fair. They will also furnish a beautiful inlaid table of native wood, three sofa pillows and a table soarf a for the Montana building. Contimeri kid gloves at Mrs. S. A. Fisher's.
