m % VOLUME XXL HAMILTON, MONTANA, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 13, 1902. NUMBER 42 REES POWELL AND HUNSAKER Each Plead Not dirtily—Hunsaker Re* leased on Ball—Cases Set for Trial —Order In Mill Creek Case. District coart convened in Hamilton Monday morning, Judge Webster pre siding. Not much business was transacted in addition to the arraignment of pris oners and setting of cases for trial. Court adjourned to meet on Friday, Aug. 29, to hear motions and demur rers. A venire of 35 trial jurors was drawn and made returnable Monday, ■ Sept. 29, at 10 a. m. Rees Powell, charged with murder in the first degree, he having killed Chas. Linscott in'an altercation over water, was first arraigned and plead not guilty He was represented by S. G. Murray as counsel. Powell ad dressed the court, demanding an im mediate trial, and if this could not be had he wanted to be released without kail. He said that he could not afford to stay in jail any longer as his crops needed attention. He said that in his/ absence his hay crop was probably ruined. Under the code murder in the first degree is not a bailable offense and, of course, the court paid no atten tion to the harangue and the prisoner was taken back to jail. The appear ance of Powell, who is quite an aged man, indicates that the close confine ment is beginning to tell on him. David Hunsaker, charged with grand larceny, was next arraigned, and plead not guilty. His bail was fixed at SI, 500 and which he furnished last evening, whereupon he was promptly released and accompanied by his wife he returned to his Medicine Tree ranch to-day. In the suits of W. D.

Ancient JTasonic Aprons. G. M. Crutchfield is the fortu nate possessor of one of the oldest Ma sonic aprons in America, and has just had it appropriately framed. The apron belonged, originally, to George H. Payne, who was the grandfather of Mrs. Crutchfield, and was the prop erty of her brother, Marcum Payne, well known here, and who died a few months ago. By his death the apron comes to the Crutchfields, to be hand ed down by them to their eldest son, Inman, now some eight years old. The apron was originally of white silk, but the silk bears the marks of years; it has a border of blue silk braid and some silver lace work around it. The emblematic work on the apron is hand painted. One of the valuable reminiscences surrounding the apron is that it was worn by George H. Payne in the Masonic lodge room with George Washington ai.d the Marquis Lafayette. Robt. W. Nicol, of this city, has also a Masonic apron which he prizes very much for its associations, and which has also been framed during the past week. This apron belonged to Mr. Nicol's father, who came to America in 1822, he being then 22 years of age, and who took the Masonic degrees in Edinburgh, Scotland, at least a year before coming over. This apron is of lambskin, and the emblematic work on it is hand painted like the other. Both aprons are interesting to mem bers of the order, and are prized very highly by their possessors.—Rep.
