Wilson, recently released from jail in Helena, came to The Missoulian office yesterday to ask for a chance to defend himself in a case already half-tried in, local and Helena newspapers through a letter written by Mrs. Wilson to the capital police. 'That letter was a lie," said (Wilson yesterday. "I wrote an answer tl, it from jail, but the Helena papers re- I fused to publish it. The Missoula papers also said that I left here under a cloud because of sonie bad checks I had written. I never wrote ltiy one had check in my life and that was It get some money for my wife one,. Wilson asserted that his wilfe's statements had injuredt his chances and that he wanted to square him self. IHe seemed upright and gentle manly enough in his statements, aiad said that he only wanted a clhance to set himself right with the world again. Hie and his wife separated some time ago, he said, and he has been sending her money ever since. In proof he showed receipts for money orders K which he claimed to have sent to his wife. His side of the matter WVilson pre sents in the following letter: Wilson's Letter. Some time ago you had somne sto ries in the paper and I natice yvou had a letter from my wife also. Now yv" have one side of the story. I will try I and give you both sides. \\hen mn wife said I lhad not w\orked a day since she has kniow\Vn me iand had not t given her ai cent of Inolney either and that I talkted her mother out of one of her lots and site never seen at cenit of the money, she lies aind I canll prve it, Fhe forgot to tell you that I gave her $15 out of the money anid gave her mother $25, tought, the electric light fixtures and wired tile house my self and paid her mother's water rental three months in advaince, boulght an axe and tree trimmer out of the money for the ltt. She forgot to tell you who has paid every light hill since the lights were put in her mother's house; she forgot to tell you she paid the deposit on the meter for the lights. She forgot to tell you that I worked two months steady Sunday and every day with a pick and shovel in Lewistown for R. C'. Reed, the plumber, and rented a horse, bought furnishings and rented a piano and t sent her $12 to come over and she re- r fused to come. Worked in Great Falls. She also forgot to tell you that I worked two months in ;reat Falls in I a concrete gang andl she( asked me to i rent a house that she wanted to tome I over and bring her neice with her land that. I rented a house, hought furni tire again, rented a piano and sent for her and she refused tq colme over I with the excuse that she was sill 1 poenaed as a witness in the 'Pasley trial, when it is a iatter of fact she I was not subpoenaed for two inonths I after that. Fhe forgot to tell you i that I sent her about $75 or $,o Inn money orders from g(reat Falls andt Lewistown and pawned my clothes here in Missoula twice and sent the money to her by her own bhother, Robert, and as for that rainieat sihe said 1 stole andt pa\\ned I wish to state she gave me that coat and 1 still ha\Ive it and it never \was in a panll shop, since I have halil it, and as for ier ring, I kInow nothing about it tanld she kliows it. And when she says she never got $1' out of lhalt moniey I got for that hald chelck she k-no\ws that's not the truth for if it hIna not been for her 1 neIver would have writ ten those checks and 1 also wish It state that I sent her $15 to pay the Interest, on that lot Ilast fill so we woutld not lose it anti when the po(lice say I left I.tissoula un(ler a clould onu accoulnt tI soltle had chickls I cashed here, I defy themn to prove it. Forged No Checks Here. 1 never wrote a bad clheck in Mis soula in niy life, and never acted as stool pigeon here either and as for me heatiig everybody I could in Mis soula, that's not trute. I owve it (olltle of oparties in this th\\I ; onlle $: liand another $5, and that's all I do onie. The rest I paid t:p last sumner and last fall and farther more I neiver \tus in trouble in Idaho, either, atnd no other state until the last year. Tlhe' only time 1 was ever arrested in Iin life was in Lewistown and Helena, and was not convicted of the charge GIRLS! THICKEN AND BEAUTIFY YOUR HAIR Bring Back Its Gloss.

Wants to Straighten Up. iohen a lnan dioes want to straight eni up and do right, the people won't let him. Instead they try to run himn dtown farther. I can prove every word of this letter. I have the money order reielpts for the money I have sent my wife and also her letter saying she r, coi\ved part of the money I sent her. Now, you alrenady have her story. So just compare the two and see how they fit. She also forgot to tell you abouti mle horroilfug Mr. Pasley's gun to get my fare to oewistown last s;u:mmer, so I will tell you myself. I am not tryinig to Inake on angel out of myself. I know I have done wrong somltetimes, but I want you to know blth sides of the store and besides, Mr. Pasley has his gun back in good shape. I think, andt the party has part if their money back, and I think she will have the rest before long, so I don't see where I committed such awful crime there. Trusting you will insert this in youir earliest issue I aiin yours very respectfully, SEILBY H. WILSON. P. S.: All I ask is for ipeople to leave mlle alone and attend to the own business and I think I iwill get along about as straight as any of them.

ARRSTSY ITROOPS ARE AlIMIIED BY WITNESSES COURTS MUST DECIDE IF MILITIA CAN TAKE PRISONERS INTO CUSTODY. Trinidad, Colo., F'eb. 23.-A direct admission by Captain W. H. Danks that the Colorado guard in the coal strike zone has arrested and detained men as military prisoners, today re moved the qllestion of alleged uncon stitutional imprisonment from thie realm of fact to that of judicial inter preta tion. The house investigating committere barred further testimony on that subject, Representative lyrnes explaining that the members would decide for themselves whether the facts admitted by t'aptain I)anks con stituted an intfringelment of constitu tional rights. "We will consult the decision of the supreme court on the subject," he added. Military authorities said tonight that the decision of the supreme court on which they retlicd was that in the famous Moyer case. This decision re cently guided t)istrict Judge A. WV. McHcendrie in hohling that military imprisonments were legal. Today's dc'vllpmelnts in the im prisonment colntroversy came after two witnesses had testifited that they were held more than 20 days without formal charge, thetll releascd. Captain Tanks, representing the jutdge IadvoIate, Ihcen addressed the committee, formnally admitting that in mllany cases prisollners l1ttd be'en heltt subslantially as recounted by the wit ttesses. "In every case investigation haIl Cbeen ma.(e as prompltly as possible antd Iprisollers w'ho w\crP 1f't1111l gutilt less were re'leasel," he declared. Representative Byrnes then sug gesterl that n11 flrtfher evidence of ar rests by the militia he received, say ing c'nptain Ianks' admntission settled the fact. .1. M. Hlendrick, deputy district nt torney, was called by the strikers to testify that since the calling of the strike thoe civil courtt had been open for butsiness at all times. ttQuestionted as to whether or not his official work had been interfered with at the time of the arrival of the militia, he said he had received telephone communica tion from G(eneral Jolhn Chase thi-at ening to arrest the district attorney and the Itwo deputies employed In the office. The alleged threat of arrest, he said. was occasioned by the release of four men whom hi s:itil 'eneral Chase laiilmed as mitliittry prisloners.

Curley, mayor of Boston and en rolled in congress as a representative from the Twelfth Massachusetts dis trict, shall be permitted to hold both offices was put up to congress today by Republican Leader Mann. A reso lution introduced by Mr. Mann set forth that the "offices of mayor and representative in congress Ire inlcool patible and it is impossible for one man to perform the dutlies of both," and proposed that Mr. c':uiley's seat be declared vacant. At the sutggestion of entmocratic Leader Underwood, Mr. lannl agreed that the resolution should go to the judiciary committee withlait debate. The Curley question has leen dis eussed for weeks at the capitol. Mr. tCurley drew his monthly salary as congressman on February 1, two days after he took the oath of office as mayor of Boston. It was said that he indicated at the time his intention of holding both offices until the end of the present session of engress to redeen pledges made to the people or his district and save 13nsti on the ex pense of a special election to lnalme his succecssor.
