A Brutal Crime Charged
Against An Old Man.
Last Saturday afternoon, John Warne
a aian 72 years of age, employed as a
watchman for the Butte Water Co. at
East Walkerville culled upon bis neigh
bors to assist him in putting out a fire
which was destroying a cabin in which
he lived. Eveline Blewett, a little girl
had visited his cabin juät before, and her
body was burned into an unrecognizable
mass before it could be takeu from the
When the fire was out and tne body
of the girl brought out tho feeling
against Warne became intense and it was
with some difficulty that the marshal
succeeded in getting him out of the way
«>î the infuriated crowd. Warne was
taken to Butte and lodged in the county
While the fire was burning the child
to death it is alleged that Waroe made
a statement to some of the neighbors of
how the affair happened. He is alleged
to have said that Friday she visited him
and he told her that Saturday would be
his pay day, aud if she would call after
he received his pay he would give her a
nickel. She had called as requested and
113 he did not produce tho promised coin
she had started to put her bands in his
pocket. Near by was a gasoline etove
which he used in the preparation of his
meals and as a means of keeping him-self
warm, aud in trying to prevent hor from
searching his pocket the stove was up
«et. lie had then picked up the stove
and carried it out of doors, but the
burning gasoline had run from it ana
ignited the interior of the cabin, the
child's clothing included. When ho at
tempted to re enter the plues the whole
interior was a mass of flames.
There are quite a number in Walker
villts who doubt this story and strongly
intimate that Warne criminally assaulted
the child and then set fire to the place
in order to coucial his crime. The posi
tion of the bo ty of the little one would
serve to bear out the assumption. It
was lying oa Warae's sleeping couch,
just as if dea^h had overtaken her' in
sleep and her skull had bean fractured.
Another circumstance which strengthens
this is belief the fact the child made 110
outcry, or if she did no one heard it,
although there are residences within 30
feet of tbe cabin.
Fearing that a mob would try to
lynch Warne, Sheriff Furay hustled him
out of the elty in a carriage at five
o'clock and took him to Anaconda.
Representative Geary To Tlie
The following recently appeared in
some of the state papers and portends
«omething lively in Deer Lodge county
before long. As a "defi" it is rather
unique and the.'e is a certain frankness
about Mr. Geary's proclamation whi.ch
leads one to believe that he will attompt,
at least, to do exactly what he says. He
"There are sheepmen in our vicinity
who brought their slock from God knows
where la?- 1 ., f ill and winter, and we sup
pose th",. did very well. Spring is now
aboiu.i-pon us and the range is nearly
vorl ot snow. The cattlemen have not
turned their herds on the range, as the
feed is short consequent on the cold
weather. Now, these sheepmen, in order
to have the start, have their stock on a
part of the ranga that belongs to our
people. Very well. Those sheepmen
want co dictate to us that they can
range their sheep on our lands if we do
not fence them.
"We want the sheepmen to under
stand that we are not compelled to
fence our lands untd vie get ready, and
we want them to understand also that
if wo find a sheep or any number of
sheep anywhere between the Big Black
foot and the north fork or that stream
any time after the 15th day of April
A. D. 1901, we shall make the brand
very scarce.
"The sheepmen from outside the valley
have imposed upon us too long, and we
have coma to the conclusion that we
will not endure it any longer. We have
no objection to local industry in that
line, but they cannot como from the out
side. Lat the sheepmeu «take warning;
we are not desperate, but we mean busi
ness. If the people of this section of old
Deer Lodge county could have agreed
on this subject 10 years ago we could
have adjusted this matter, but they
thought there was range enough for all
Now they know different.
"There are only three sections of land
between the Big Blackfoot and the
North Fork that have not been bought
of the government or the Northern Pa
cific Railroad company. These sheep
men think because it is not fenced in
that they havo a right to range their
sheep thereon. Before the 20th of April
they will wish they had moved the sheep
if they don't do it before that time.
"We are not desperate until we try—
until we are driven to it. We may as
well die as to '00 starved out. Don't be
in doubt as to who the author of this is.
I'll be captain.
Shipwreck and Cannibalism.
London, April 7.—The Singapore cor
respondent of Daily Express wires a
ghastly story of cannibalism at sea,
brought to Singapore by two surivors of
the Nova Scotian bark Augloa, wrecked
after six days' sailing from Manila, Oct.
18 last. The correspondent says:
"Survivors Johnson, a Swede, and
Marticornu, a Spaniard, assert that the
Angloa struck a reef. Two raft3 were
built. The smaller, bearing five men,
disappeared. Tho other, with 12 men,
drifted for 40 days. The sailors ate bar
nacles, seaweed and finally their boots.
"Uu the twenty fith day two became
insane and killed themselves. On the
twenty-sixth a Frenchman killed the
mate with an axe, di$nk his blood and
tried to eat his brains, but was prevent
ed by others. Next day the Frenchman
was killed white. attempting, to murder
the captain. The survivors, all of whom
were now insane ate the Frenchman's
body. The cannibalism continued until
only Johnson and Marticornu remained.
On the forty second day the raft strand
ed on Subi or Flat island, in the Natuna
group, northwest from Bor eo. John
son and Marticornu were awfully emaci
ated. Friendly Malays sent them by a
junk to Singapore."
Tiiey Have Them In Dakota Too.
Dickinson, N. ., April 7.— Walter Y.
Barnett is convicted of horse stealing
after one of the hardest fought trials in
western North Dakota. Barnett ship
pad stolen horses to Lake City, la., and
when detected und arrested attempted
to shield himself with a biil of sale
purporting to nave been given by some
axno.vu pircy, but which the state
reasoned was written and signed by
himself after his arres\
No case in court for many years has so
in teres tea stockmen as this one. Whole
sale thieving has beeil going on for
many months.
Barnett will likely get til
sentence of live years. It is known that
others havo been operating with him.
Today Sherff John Goodall learned

Jim McCartney, and is a desperado
wanted by the police in Montana and

The Gushers In Texas.
Beaumont, Tex., April 8.—The sixth
gushe 1- oil well has been added to the
Beaumont field aud it is reported to be
the finest well yet struck. Tae well is
1,040 feet deep and shows a pressure of
80 pounds to the square inch which is
said to exceed the San Lucas gusher,
100 feet away and which has hitherto
maintained the record ot being the
greatest producer in the world.
The oil pool where it was struck is
only 40 feet deep, and is resting on a bed
of sulphur. After the oil was .-truck the
pipe was permitted to sink until it
struck the bottom, and it rested after 40
feet of oil had been gone through. The
drillers bored four feet into what they
say is a bed of eulphur. In two other
gushers sulphur was struck before the
oil was reached.
President Gilbert says that one day
next week the valve will be opened to
test the flow.
