'FINLANDER SLUGGED AND ROB ABED BY SUPPOSED FRIENDS. $USPECTS ARRESTED Knocked Down: and $150 Taken from ' His shoes-Officer Lavelle Sees One otf RobSbers Fleeing from Scene of Crime and Captures Him. From Saturday's Daily. Ole Bjorensen, a Finlander, was held up and robbed yesterday morn king about 1 o'clock by two men, just across from the Commercial hotel, on the sidewalk which leads to the re stricted district. A man, giving the name of Charlie Johnson, was soon af ter arrested by Officer Lavelle charged with being one of the hold ups: Bjorensen says that Johnson and his companion had been following him around and'drinking with him all the evening, and just before the rob bery was committed the two men suggested that they go over to the red light district, to which he assent ed, and they started across the tracks at Twenty-sixth street. While they were walking along on the high side walk just before reaching the tracks, Bjorensen says that the two men sud denly grabbed him and commenced beating and choking him. After they had beaten and choked him into sub mission, they carried him under the sidewalk and began searching him, taking off his clothes and continuing to beat and choke him in their efforts to make him tell where his money was concealed. Finally they took off his shoes and discovered $150 ingold which he had concealed in them, and after taking the money, fled. As they were fleeing the Finlander started hollowing murder, and Officer Lavelle, who was passing at the time,. saw the two men running and hear ing the Finlander's cries, hurried to the scene. He saw Johnson crouched I "tldow tilder the wool house platform, While his companion was not to be seen. The officer started toward the place where Johnson was concealed and as he did so, the man broke cover and ran. Officer Lavelle pursued him down the tracks and as they neared the stock yards, fired several shots at him. When the officer started firing the man slackened his pace and final ly stopped and gave himself up. When the officer reached Johnson, the man sank to the ground, too frightened and out of breath to speak. He was brought back to the city and was identified by Bjorensen as one of his assailants, the Finlander saying that he was the one who choked him, a while the other man went through his clothes. Johnson was searched thor oughly, every article of wearing ap parel which he had on being stripped i off of him in hopes of finding the money. But the search was in vain. The officers are of the opinion that h Johnson's companion made way with 2 the money after the robbery was com- f mitted. a The Finlander described his other t assailant as being smooth shaven, tail is and slender and well dressed. He says 11 he was wearing a blue serge suit and tan shoes. Officer Soy made a thor ough search of the south side in com pany with the Finlander in hope of ap- d prehending the man, but so far he has c not .been arrested, although the police are working on several clues which b may lead to his apprehension. n Bjorensen says that apparently : neither of the men were armed and p the search made of Johnson's person r failed to reveal a gun or any incrimi nating evidence. tl .The police say that they have a t strong case against Johnson and are in hopes of capturing his companion aI and recovering the money. Johnson H will be arraigned before Justice Mann today. FILE ON HUNTLEY LAND Four More Take Advantage of Being Successful at Drawing-Total to File Now Reaches Sixty-eight. From Saturday's Daily.

'From Saturday's Daiiy. Twenty-seventh street is the long est street in the city at. presefit. It extends. from the extreme southern portion to within a few hundred feet 3- of the bluffs on the north. The street has been graded for its entire length and a steel bridge across the drainage ditch on this street is being planned by the residents and business men located on the street. The street has been graded to connect with the coun ty road which runs from the cove to the upper end of the street, and it is thought that by erecting a nteel e bridge over the drainage ditch, a large f part of the wagon traffic coming into the city from the northwest will come in by the way of Twenty-seventh street. DR. SNYDER IS BACK Returns From Extensive Trip-Leaves Soon for West, After Which He Goes to Lake Geneva to Have Camp for Boys. From Saturday's Daily. Dr. Leonard W.

After the camp breaks up he will make his appointments for next year, after which he will attend the general convention of the Episco pal church, returning to Billings when it is over. HIS CONDITION IS UNCHANGED LITTLE HOPE HELD OUT FOR T. V. HALSEY. CRISIS NOT REACHED Little Probability of Bringing Indict ed Man to Trial-Prosecution of Opinion That Telephone Officials Will Be Convicted Without His Testimony. San Francisco, Aug. 10.-The con dition of T. V. Halsey, Wvno wis opor ated on Thursday n.ght for appendici- A tis, is unchanged. He passel a com fortable night, but the crisis is not yet a'* :naad. Dr. Shumate cal'ed at, the St. Francis hospital early rhis lutl'i ng. 1.,u fo m-j no variation in the pltske or temperature of his l:a- h tient since the bulletin issueJ at. micuipht. The effect of the chlo.aform t h isi :appeared a':d within ;h. u.t cr 24 hours symptoms on which the final outcome may be prognosticated, s are expected. The probability of bringing Haley t to trial upon the 11 charges of bribery is slight. The surgeons can offer but little hope for his ultimate recovery the disease having gone so far, before the knife was used, that it will be mir aculous if a cure is effected. a The loss of Halsey will not in any degree change the plans of the prose cution. It was expected at one time I that he might turn on his his former associates, but up to the time of the beginning of the trial he has shownal no disposition to break the resolute n silence which he has shown no dis- e. position to breali the resolute silence which he had maintained since his ar rest in Manila. A The prosecution officers says that tC the testimony of Halsey is not essen- oi tial for the conviction of the other accused officials of the telephone com pany. During the trial of Glass, the attorneys for the defense did not spare Halsey. BATTLESHIPS ARE SPEEDY CONNECTICUT AND LOUISIANA COMPLETE TRIAL RUNS.

Some very good scores were K made in the rapid fire at 200 and 500 yards. The first of the slow fire de velopedf- some excellent marksman 'Cs ship. The scores at 200 yards were uniformly over centers and a great deal of the shooting at 600 yards was P equal to the best shooting that is be ing done anywhere in the country. The top score at 600 yards was made by Sergeant F. E. Hirsch of the hos pital corps, who made 47. There were as a great many scores over 40 at this 3y range. Major G. E.

TALES THAT ARE TOLD Some Say That They Caught a Thou, said-Tschudy Says He Caught One -Both Declare They Had a Good Time Anyhow. From Sunday's Daily. Men have told us, fishing stories, s Since .onah and his whale; And every man what-fishes, Always has a monstrous tale, But the biggest of the whoppers, Must go back and take a seat, 'Cause Tschudy and Cass Prudhomme 'Have got the biggest neat. - It may be so. We do not know. And yet we have a doubt We think they were a dreamin' Sn1at they "caught a thousand trout." Joe Tschudy and Cass Prudhomme have returned from their fishing trip to the East Rosebud lake. Such fish tales! .One story is that Tschuay caught a thousand trout. Another is that he caught one and Prudhomme caught a thousand. They seem to stick to the tale of a thousand fish. The real truth of the matter seems to be that Tsohudy did the camp work and Prudhomme-well, he is said to have done the fishing. As T'schudy ex pressed it, the best fishermen and the worst fishermen have returned from a fishing trip. The trip was taken to settle a dis pute between Tschudy and Prud homme as to which could catch tne most fish. The best accounts lead to the belief that they would have been all right catching fish, but they coulu not catch flies. 'As the latter are nec essary in fishing. It is impossible to tell how many fish they did catch. C Both declare they had a good time. Anyone who goes to the Billings club today can probably find out the trut.t of the fish story.

LITTLE COAL LAND IS SEEN DR. HAYS TALKS ON RESULTS OF CLASSIFICATION PARTIES. INSPECTING THE WORK Chief Geologist of the United States Geological Survey Explains Work to Be Done by Parties Making Classi fication of the Coal Lands. From Saturday's Daily. Dr. C. W. Hays, chief geologist of the United States geological survey, returned to Billings yesterday from inspecting the work being done by the two field parties of the survey under R. W. Stone and L. H. Woolsey, as sistant geologists who are now work ing in the Musselshell country. "The parties, which I have visited, are progressing nicely in their work," said Dr. Hays to a representative of The Gazette, yesterday. "They are making a topographic map and: gather ing mineral specimens of the coal lands, which were recently withdrawn from entry by executive order. The formation of the land through which they are working is being examined and extensive notes are being made. The notes will be used in a little pam phlet giving the results of the work which will be published next. spring. "The specimens, which the parties have collected, have been brought to this city and are being examined by Drs. F. W. Stanton and F.

At the close of the 800-yard shoot ing Private Brass had a comfortable lead in the competition for the high aggregate medal. Major D. J. Donohue 1 of Glendive stood second. Sergeant Hirsch was third. Between the lead Sers and those following, the margin Idf advantage was extremely small and the 1,000-yard competition Monday I may make numerous changes in the standing of the competitors. In the team trophy shoot, Company I of Glendive has a lead impossible to overcome. The present holder of this trophy is Company C of Big Timber, but the team from that organization is now in third place, having been passed yesterday by Company A of Bozeman. Tomorrow at noon the medals for the various competitions will be awarded to the competitors. 'Gover nor Toole was invited to make the presentation speech, but on account of illness was forced to decline. In his absence the adjutant general will make the presentations. It was hoped that the firing might have been completed last evening, but ý on account of the storm of yesterday that was impossible. Only the three leading teams will fire at the 1,0001 yard range tomol'row. At the close of the 1,000-yard firing the team to represent the, state in the national competition will be chosen. It is practically certain that probably half the team will be selected from the hospital corps stationed in Helena. MRS. FERGUSON DEAD. S Remains Will Be Sent to Canada for Burial.
