THEANACONDA STANDARD, MONDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 27, 1893.
MQMDAYMORNING HASH Oddsud Esds of Ficts and Stories^Picked Up at Raodom ADVENTURESIN SALT LAKE WhyIt la Difficult to Convlot Crim^^inals In Silver Bow County-Mid^^way Plalaanoa Attrac^^tion* Coming. Butte,Not. 2S.^Tlie difllcultiea with^which the prosecution of criminal* in Sil^^ver Bow county in surrounded, and the ut^^most certainty or a failure to convict, was^^bown in a recent case on trial in the dis^^trict court. Almost every witness for the^state bad to be dragged into court, so to^speak, and then, although they possessed^criminating knowledge concerning the de^^fendant, they were so reluctant in telling^what they knew that their testimony was^almost valueless. After the conclusion^of the trial, several well known citizens^volunteered information, which if given^on the witness stand, would have been al^^most convincing of the guilt of the ac^^cused, but they did not want to assume^the duties of law abiding citizens of the^state and tell what they know on tho^stand. On the other hand every friend of^the defendant, whether he knew some^^thing or nothing in his favor, gave his aid^in his behalf and they almost forced them^^selves into the case as witnesses. Anotherfact working against the prose^^cution is the general unreliability of the^slate's witnesses. Usually witnesses upon^whom the case of the prosecution mainly^rests in criminal cases are not of the^highest characters, and experience shows^that it is very uncertain that they will re^^peat the aame story on the witness stand^that they tell the proiteciitiiig attorney.^Especially does this uncertainty exist in^cases where the trial of an accused person^is sometimes necessarilly draeged along,^thus giving witnesses too much time end^opportunity to change their minds. In^the particular case above referred to, one^of the main wituesses told such a glaring^and contradictory story from that he testi^^fied to in the lower courts, as almost to^demand a prosecution for porjury. This^is but one of many similar instances, and^considering them all it is often a wonder^that the energetic prosecuting attorney of^Silver Bow county is able to secure any^convictions at all. Ayoung man connected with the busi^^ness office of the Standard in Butte, re^^turned several days ago from a few^months' residence in Salt Lake city. His^experience in tho Mormon city gives him^some right to the assumption of the title^of Bishop, by which he is now known. He^went to Salt Lake in company with an^^other young man of this city, and in look^^ing for ^ home they got into the family of^a Mormon elder. Tho members of the^family were such devout Mormons that^the two young men conceived it their duty^to encourage the impression they created^that they, too, were good churchmen. The^deception was carried out quite success^^fully during their entire stay, but upon^several occasions tbey came near being^rudely exposed. The first of these narrow^escapes occurred one day when the bishop^was asked by the elder to say grace at the^dinner table. The request was a shock to^the bishop and nearly knocked him out,^but he sew that there was no escape, so he^just put on a bold front and started: ^Oh,^Lord,^ he managed to get out and then^there was a long and painful pause, while^the prcspiration trickled front the bishop's^brow. He made another desperate offort.^^Oh, Lard, have mercy on this food!^ He^then got in the ^amen^ and the diners^^fell to,^ but the dinner after that was^not a succoss. The bishop folt that some^^how he had not said the right thing and^that the elder's family kuow it. The^next blunder was made by the bishop's^friend during the Sunday morning church^services at the tabernacle. The sacra^^ment plate was passed around, which the^young man declined with a very audible:^^Thank you, but I have just had break^^fast.^ Ayoung woman from this city, quite^well known, made a trip to Salt Lake re^^cently and her friends gave it out that she^went to that city to get married, and that^she would make her future home there.^In less than a week sho was bock in Unite^and hadn't been married. Her return was^surrounded with mystery, but the only ex^^planation alio offered was that she had^changed her mind, a privilege that a^w oman has, and a reason considered suf^^ficient why sue was not married. The^cause for changing her mind remained^unknown until a few days ago when a^gentleman from Salt Lake, who happened^to know the young woman and the man in^the case, made his appearance in Butte^and explained that when she arrived in^Salt Lake she made the very surprising^and disagreeable discover)' that her in^^tended had already two wives, and sh*^did not cam to be number throe. Avery small thing is often responsible^for big results, anil not infrequently sur^^prising results. A typographical error of^one letter in a ^want ad.^ in the Stand^^ard yesterday morning was evidence of^this. The Jay Hawk ft Lone 1'ino Mining^company w anted to advertise for a ^llrst-^class pan man,^ but tho advertisement^announced that the company was in need^of a ^first-class psnman.^ Captain i'ri-^deaux says they have had applications for^the posIstaM of penman from nearly every^k id-k loved and soft-handed clerk in the^country, and not one application from a^hard-handed man for the job of pan man. ItIs not such a very loug way from the^celebrated Midway Plaisauce to some^strata* of Butts, and the managers of the^Haymarket have sot about to reduce the^distance to nil. by bringing the sensational^attraction of tho Midway to Butte. The^famous ^belly dancers.^ who have quit^the Midway for the variety business, have^lieen engaged for u date at tho Haymar^^ket. and many w ives whose husbands will^be out late at night next week will under^^stand where tbey spend their time. Theboard of school trustees has again^offered the MfLQOO worth of school bond*^for sale. They were fust offered last^spring, but the financial depression with^other causes hail led to the postponement^of the sale. Tlie bids for the tiondt are to^be in one week from to-morrow night snd^the trustees are not allowed to sell them forless than par and accrued interest.^They are offered in coupons of 11,000 each^at 6 per cent, interest per annum. Severalcitizens huve inentionsd to the^Standard re|^orter that they would be^very glad to take a few hundred dollars'^woith if the bonds would he sold in small^amounts of between flUd and 91,(100.^There are a good many workiagmen who^have a few hundred dollars in the bank,^diawing no interest. The school bonds^are as safe as any investment can be, and^the interest would be regularly paid,^whereas now tho money earns nothing.^The amount of the bonds could be taken^up right in Butte in small amounts. Awell-known Butte physician baa ssnt tothe Standard an extract from the^Medical .Vrrcj, with the comment, ^Tne^above applies especially to Butte City.^^The article is by Dr. J. P. Armour and is^entitled ^Booming Medicine.^ It reads:^^The Insane nub of young men. ami women,^too, Intetlis profession is chiefly owing to the ex^^tra vacant puffing of a ronslilrrahle portion of Its^members regsrdtnir tbe financial results of their^labor. I hare a couple sf phytlclaaa In mind,^with whom I wai familiar both as s youth and^after eu'erlng the profession, whose careers are^somewhat typical of the l^^omint(' class. The^one wus the leading physician of a large town.^He claimed and ^^^ generally accredited with^doing a practice of *^v^^i a year. He lived^quite Inexpensively, except In the matter of^horses, several of which he always kept to en^^courage hutinets, and after struggling with^a practice of this kind for -s^years, he suddenly collapsed, leaving Ids^creditors In for over gjo.nuo. The other prac^^ticed in a small village, anil for J ears had done^a tremendous pra'tlcr: kept half a dozen horses,^slept little, and had rarely time to take hit^meals; he lived quite Inexpensively, except In^the matter of horse*, he took hut one holiday^during hit whole eareer; and he aflrciet. and^was generally supisised to lie |iossessed of^fahiilouti wealth, and after a lahortous profes^^sional life of 4)1 years, departed, leaving an^estate valued at less than ts.uou. I can name a^score of men In the profession to-day, who have^hcen lured there hy the lH^:istlng of these two.^This unmanly habit afflicts the profession to a^disgraceful extent, and does It more In jury than^auy other affliction to which It Is subjected. JudgeColtnaii says that all the talk^about the expense of the lower courts^costing tbe county such large amounts of^money gives him a pain in the side. The^judge is under tbe impression that if the^gentlemen who are making this hue and^cry about the justices' courts would have^thoir own departments looked into they^would have the linger of scorn pointed at^them and would be walking on their^uppers instead of eating calves' bruins^atid mushrooms, and he also says his^books are open fur inspection by any citi^^zen in Silver Bow county. All the money^bo ever gets from tho county is ffiO pur^mi nth, and that is all ho wants, because^he don't want to get proud and saucy. He^says look at tbe Savillecase; it has oost^tho taxpayers in the neighborhood of^f'J.000, and says he can enumerate SOcascs^in the higher courts that have cost tho^county thousands of dollars, but nobody^must say anything about it, as it might^hurt some high-toned gentlemen's feel^^ings. He says be is no angel anil don't^pretend to be one, but when nnybody tries^to make capital out of him tbey will find^him always ready to lock born* with them.

ITSMUSEUM CURE Mr.Groeneveld's Thoughtful and Broad-^lioded Lict.rt On Pauperism. RELATIONTO INTEMPERANCE TheFirst of a Series of Six Ad^^dresses by the Learned DivineOn the Labor^Problem. Bt'tte,Nov. M. - Kev. K. J. tlroenveld^this evening began a seties of six lectures^on various topics connected w ith the labor^problem. The large audience which at^^tended tbs Presbyterian church this even^^ing was greatly interested, and it is evi^^dent the scries of lectures will prove very^popular. Mr. (iroeuvvld is otic of Mon^^tana's soiost pulpit orators and his com^^ments on the labor summon w ill lie read^by thoughtful people all over the stale.^His subject this evening w as, ^Pauper-^lam; Its Causes and Its Cure. Thetext was Second Thessoloniaus,^111:10. ^If any w ill not work, neither lot^him eat.^ The speaker said that that was^a penalty w liich socioty should demand^for its owti self-protection. The u|^oatlc^indicates ono cause of pauperism, viz:^Isziness. The Lord clothes the lilies and^feuds ths ravens, but he would rather^have his human creatures starve than^that they should be encouraged m their^laziness. Provision is made for men liy^a bountiful Creator, but it is necessary^that they stretch out their hands and help^themselves. Work and eat. is ttixl's law. Thespc.il.cr then deliued tbe MM pau^^perism and slowed bow it dilTers from^poverty, A poor man is still independent.^Ho asks nobody's support. Tho \nutr man^still has Ins self-respect ami ln.inli^s^l ^^tbe pauper has lost both. Pauperism is a^crime against society, |k^vcrny is a mis^^fortune. Tho pauper is a man w ho wants^something for nothing. Then* are patqiers^in tbe mansion, in public olliccs and not^infrequently in the pulpit. I.veryhody^should work for a living. Society owes^no man a living. Those w he arc bodily or^mentally infirm should 1st supported.^Tbey are not equal to life's struggle. It^is able-bodied idleness thut society groans^under, and there is unlaw of either nature^or grace that commands us to feed it.^Ninet^-livo per cent, of all begging is un^^deserving. This is proved hy statistics;^s.^ per cent, of the paupers have been^intemperate ; 0(1 j^er cetil. of the paupers^cannot read or write. Tins points^out another cuurse of pauperism, viz.^ignorance. Tho work of our public schools^must bo made more thorough, compulsory^and practical. And whilo 1 am speaking^about tbe practical in education, let ine^say that 00 per cent, of the inmates of our^poorlioiises, and HO per cent, of tho in^^mates of penitentiaries do not know how^to handle tools. Does not this point^towards manual training^ Another,^probably the cause of pauperism, is the^saloon. Ths saloon is responsible for H5^percent, of sll pauperism. It is the curse^of this day. In every city this monster Krindsthe bones of its victims during -1^ours of every day. The liquor evil is^found in our hotels and in our grocery^stores. Tho clubs cannot exist without it.^^It is a curse,^ said I romw ell, ^that Cod^will yet reckon with.^ Throe-fourths of^our taxes are caused by it. It costs Butte^20 times aa much to sustain the saloons as^to sustain the public schools. The can so^of education and decency cannot succeed^us long us the saloon flourishes. It consti^^tutes the question in which labor should^Ike interested to-day. Mr. I'rcoellick,^w hen president of the Nation Labor union^and tight Hour league, said: ^Tho use^of liquor ami its influences have done^more to darken laltor's homes, dwarf its^energies and cbuiti it hand and foot to the^w heels of cor|Morale oppression than alt^other influences combined.^ And Mr.^Powderly, the cleverest and ablest leader^the w oik i uc men ever had, testifies:^^Strong drink is the greatest enemy the^laboring man has. The saloon, and not^capital, has crushed every' labor organiza^^tion that has gone down heretofore, ami^there is no hope for tho laboring man w ho^persists in frequenting drinking places.^^And in an address before tho general^assembly of the Knighis of Labor he snul:^^Tho rum seller's pulh snd that of tho^honest workingtnan lie in opposite direc^^tions. Tbe rum seller, w ho seeks admis^^sion into n labor society, does so with the^object that he may entice its MaMMM^into his salo.ni after the meetings close.^No workingmau ever drank a gluss of rum^wdio did not rob his family of the price of^it, and in so dome committed murder ami^theft, lie murders his intellect, he steals^from Ins family. Mr.Arthur.ot the Locomotive Lngineers,^says: ^If 1 could, 1 would inaugurate a^strike, which would drive the liquor tralllc^from the face of the earth.^ And still the^workingman sits down in the den of tho^iron hearted saloon keeper, wdio coins^gold out of life's blood, and continues to^hand over virtually his wife's dinner and^his children's shoes uiul talks nliout bis ScTsotialliberty and tho saloonist smiles,^o wonder! Such an idea of liberty will^be ranked in history as one of the most^amazing of delusions that over gained^|M^wer over the human race. I am told^that it is poverty that drivesiueti to drink.^No. its the pig that makes the dirty sty. In^a parlor he would still be a pig. Nowwhat produces K.'i |^er cent, of all^pnupei^m is certainly a nuisance. Pau^^perism will never disappear altogether,^probably, but the solemn responsibility^rests ii|miii every one of us to drive every^social evil into tho narrowest limits.^Again there is a dangerous looseness in^the marriage ties. Much home life in our^city has be-n blasted. Licentiousness is^almost the rule instead of the exception.^There is atkoiit one divorce to every live^marriages. We should en force every Ian^we now have, and enact more, so that the^domestic sanctities may not tsi t rl tie,! w ith.^'1 liesc are the mam causes of pauperism.^Multhussaid: ^Charity is folly. Let the^weak go to the wull, let epidemics rage at^will. I^^t nature alone. It will kill of tbe^undesirable individuals and ultimately^improve tho race.^ Darwinism savs:^^Let the pauper struggle, if he cun't stand^the strain, he's not tit to live. Let linn^die.^ Socialism wants to ^levy a tax large^enough so that the slate tuuv have enough^to fc^sl every liody all he w ants.'' Indiscriminaterelief will not cure pau^^perism.
