DISPUTE TlE WATER RIGHT Complicated Controversy Over the Waters of Beaver Creek. People interested? in the waters of Beaver creek are waging a controver sy in court over the water right. Last year the Havre Ditch company, in corporated, secured a right to ditch across the military reservation from Beaver creek to its lands. Irrigating ditches were made and a necessary amount of water was filed upon. A short time ago M. J. Healy and E. T. Broadwater, who own the land below the ditch company's dam, se cured an order from Judge Tattan re straining the stockholders of the ditch company from diverting the waters of Beaver creek. This lead to interesting develop ments. W. B. Sands, of Chinook, R. L. Sands, Philip D. Clack, Mrs. T. F. Raymond and Mrs. R. L. Sands, of Havre, are local stockholders in the ditch company. The first three men tioned were arrested last week on the charge of malicious mischief, pre ferred by M. J. Healy. Mr. Healy complains that the defendants put in a box to measure the water flow in his irrigating ditch, north of his land, which was so fixed as to interfere with the flow of water. Mrs. T. F. Raymond and Mrs. R. L. Sands, both shareholders in the ditch company, who were not mentioned in the re staining order, went out to the dam last week and opened the gates, let ting the water into the ditch. Thurs day, Mr. Healy and Mr. Broadwater,. accompanied by a party of witnesses, went to the ditch company's property and opened the gate, letting nearly all the water of Beaver creek into the ditch. A photograph was taken of the creek bed, nearly empty, and the water flowing into the ditch. Saturday, N. C. Wescott, who in tended leaving for the Philippines Sunday, was arrested on a charge pre ferred by the ditch company of malic ious mischief. The case is being tried in J. H. Meili's court today. POLICE COURT Friday, Chas. Ortman, Geo. Gor don and Frank Lobben were brought before Judge Pyper's court by Chief Bickle to answer to the charge of drunkenness. The former two were fined $5.00 each and the latter $7.50. James Carroll, who was peddling phony jewelry on the street the 4th was gathered in by Marshal Francis and sentenced by Judge Pyper to thirty days. James McIntyre, who appropriated a watch belonging to a gentleman at the Post, was given ninety days in jail in which to repent. Bert McDevitt was arrested the 4th and brought before Judge McIn tyre, charged with assault and carry ing concealed weapons. He was fined $28.00 and in default of payment will serve a sentence in the city bastile.
