Jyarmond, of New York, Plaeed on the Stand by the Montana Compasiep Limited, Most of the testimony yesterday forenoon is the Drum Lummon litigation related to tle value of" gold and 'silver b.d how, it is handled at the United Statoi assay office In Ieloena. Dr. Raymond, of .New. York, was on the stand all the aftetnoon when' the doett room was well' filled to hear t*e ex. pert testify. H. H. Davrl, chief clerk of the United States aasay ofice In l.lsae, testified that no refinn' is done at the oleoe and only gold bullion is purchased. All gold is based on the value of $20.67 a fine ounce and the deposits of gold are brought to the office and asnryod and the faneniss arrlved at. The 'chlres. thibls l. pie04 ere one-eighth of one per nalt o the value. For eamples take a deposit of $100 The charge would be 10 cents imposed for the milling, stamping and asnlying. Then the next cha 'go mposed Would be a dedoe tisI for the refining at Philadelphia and $1 for the melting, unless the deposit exeeded 1,000 ounces, then it would be one-tenth of one cent an opnco. But the $1 melting eharge coverg gil bars that to under 1,000 ounces. Then the next charge imposed is so mooh en ounce, If the pAe uges is 700 or over it is four cents an ounce. There is only one other charge imposed, Which is for the copper alloy to reduce it to colin; that is two cents an ounce for onu ninety-ninth of the standard weight of the deposit. On a deposit of $160, to make the illnetration clear, the fisat charge would be one-eighth of one per cent 18 .ants. Next would be the charge of $1 for melting. The deposlt weald weich about five pounes, and that would be 20 cents, which world oceke $1.80 for that chbare, Then the lowest charge to be imposed for the copper, wopld.ti two gents, so that the ohargef( imposed on a deposlt of $100 would be $1.85. Mr. Davis said the aold brought to the assay offie from the Montana company ranged in fine tees from 550 to possibly 600. Aooording to thie assay office charges five ounces of fins gold at $20.67 would be $108.85. ' he firt charge would be $1.20. the five ounces at four cents an ounce, and two cents'"for the copper; the charges would be $1.85 de duoted from the deposit of $108.85 would leave the deposit $102. 'Fhe fixed charge of $1 is applied to fAve ounces as well as 100 ounces. The bullion was brought froup he Montana company in bare that weirled or 700 ounces. Nix hundred ounces would be valued at $12,402; the charges 40.62, which would leave the depositor $12,861.88. The witness on his cross-ex amination said silver bullion was not pur bhased at the assay offioe. He did not know what part of the product of the Montana company, limited, was sold at the assay office, and that none was sold at present. The offioe did handle the company's gold bares for a while, but the witness had no Idea what portion of the product. About two months ago the purchases from the Montana company closed. Mr. Davis aid that.*hen thes bullmbd ialls below the iv ernminent standard the miner usually r2el it to the banks or shipped it to a refinery aen bad to pay the express charges, which are about $2.50 per $1,000. Joseph Chivers, the teller at the Mer chants National bank, testified that his bank usually bought the silver sent in to the Helena assay pf]i.e T~ro express, qchrgyp on sliver bullion from Helena to New York is $11 per thousand value under eighty pounds. If it is over eighty pounds, then it is 11 cents a pound in excess. The prices of refining silver is three cents an ounce; that is what the bank charges. A bar com posed mostly of silver is, called silver bul lion. RoseIter W. Raymond, of Brooklyn, N. Y., was placed on the stand by the Mon tana company limited.

Graham's new musical comedy, inlled "Larry the Lord," which will be pre sented at the opera house Saturday night, is the taking title of a farce that has been em bellished with music and daneing, the whole forming an entertainment worth see ing. It is rather a new departure for Mr. Graham, as he has In the past oQly been in troduced in opera. He, however, intro duces a very considerable number of seleo tions in his new comedy and these do mash toward the rucoess of the play. The com pany is especially strong msuesally, and in Miss Edith Orseke. has a dansuese of un usual freshness, grace and art. The sonas are all new and far abhove the average of those heard in musical comedy. "Larry the Load" should be seen by those who can appreciate two hours of clean honest merri mont.
