Successful Robbery Early This
Morn in?.
Two Masked Highwaymen Play
Winning Game in Ryan's Saloon
on Anaconda Road.
Joe Ryan's saloon at 215 Anaconda road
was held up and robbed by masked high
waymen at an early hour this morning
and the robbers succeeded in getting
away with $10.25 in cash and two watches.
Bartender John Dick was seated near
the stove talking to two visitors. Cliff
Spence and John Harrington, and was
reclining comfortably in a chair with his
feet resting on a table. Shortly after 4
o'clock the door opened and in walked
the traditional long and short men. Both
had their features concealed by handker
chiefs, one of which was white and the
other black. Coat collars were turned up
and hats pulled down over the eyes to
further assist in the disguises. The tall
man wore a dark overcoat and dark cap
and the short man wore a brown cutaway
coat and a brown hat. As they entered
the door they leveled revolvers at the oc
cupants of the room and the big man
growled out:
"Throw up your hands, you fellows."
Dick hesitated about complying with
the demand and the big man turned his
attention exclusively to him.
"Throw up your hands or I'll shoot the
-out of you," he said in a most ugly
manner, and Dick seeing that he was not
to be trilled with, complied with the re
quest. The big man still covering the trio
told his partner to go behind the bar and
get what money he could And. Dick was
■closely watching proceedings and the big
man evidently thinking that the barkeep
er was getting to curious, snarlingly or
dered him to turn his face toward the
After the little robber had tapped the
till of all it contained, amounting to $10.25,
he turned his attention to the three men,
taking a filled Elgin watch valued at $35
from Dick and a $45 watch from Harring
ton. As the cross bars on the chains
caused some trouble, the robber snapped
the chains and left the fragments hang
ing in the vests of the two men. When
his work had been completed the big man
ordered Dick to open a small safe that
stood in the saloon but the bartender said
that he did not know the combination
and could not do it. The robbers took his
word and then left the saloon. As the big
man backed out he warned Dick not to
attempt to follow him as he would "shoot
blazes out of him."
As soon as the door closed Dick jumped
to his feet and securing his pistol opened
the door. He heard the men running |
through the Parrot yard and he fired
three shots in the air to attract the police.
As his place is beyond the city limits his
alarm was not heard and the men made
good their escape. Dick says that he
nearly always carries a pistol on his per
son, but ten minutes before the'saloon
was entered by the thieves, he laid it
down back of the bar. The watch he lost
was a present to him seven years ago and
on account of its associations he prized
it very highly. Immediately after the
robbery Spencer was sent to police head
quarters fur the purpose of reporting it.
The description given of the men was
fairly good and the police believe that
they will he able to find them.
"E. O. Ingram, disturbing the p7ä77.
Guilty or not guilty?" asked Assistant
City Attorney Little In the police court
this morning.
"Well, you see, judge." said Ingram; "I

fever on the brain. I was thrown into
a pool of water to sleep last night and it
didn't make my grip any better."
"You got a pretty good grip on our
furniture down stairs last night," said
Jailer Boyle.
" 'Twas the fever in my brain," said
" Twas an overdose of smoke," mut
tered Clerk O'Leary.
"It was this way," said Ingram. "I
was going home, and there are always
two dogs that attack me. I have told

That 'Ole Olson" has outlived his use
fulness as a drawing card was evidenced
at the Grand last night by the small audi
ence downstairs. The gallery and bal
con}- were well filled and made up in
noise and enthusiasm for the small at
tendance. George W. Hamler made a
very good Ole, possesses a good dialect,
looks the part and sings a little and
dances a great deal better than he can
sing. Miss St. George Hussey has been
in Butte on other occasions and was
warmly welcomed from her first appear
ance. As Bridget O'Flannlgan she re
ceived many plaudits and was obliged to
respond to many encores. She has a voice
powerful enough for several women; as
for quality, quantity has the odds in its
favor beyond doubt. She can dance fairly
well. C. F. Lorraine has a pleasing
though weak voice; Minnie .Church is a
rather clever dancer and sings pleasingly
and moreover is young and pretty. Jes
sica Webster Ponds put as much life as
possible into the role of Mrs. Jordan: W.
W. Crimans was the typical villain;
Thomas R. Beaty plays the slide trom
bone very well and can dance entertain
ingly and sing a little. Little Phillip was
played by Baby Marion. The plot is too
well known to need elucidation. "Ole
Olson" will be given tonight, tomorrow
night and matinee tomorrow afternoon.

In the Dutch army a man must be able
to swim as well as to fight. Moreover, if
he is in the cavalry he must have a horse
which will take a river as easily as a
hunter takes a fence. Swimming ma
noeuvers are part of the regular drill
there. Collapsible canvas boats, manned
by a few oarsmen, lead the horses so that
they do not attempt to land on stone
quays and other difficult points. The men
swim across with their horses and on
them. They do it in swimming costume,
and in all the accoutrements of war.

sued monthly to the same number of
wheelbarrows plying for hire in the street
of the foreign settlements at Shanghai
where, being under the municipal regu
lations, they are, perhaps, the best in
China. Sometimes as many as 50 harrows
may be seen in the streets, traveling one
behind the other, each carrying two bar
rels of English and Portland cement and
pushed by one man. Very frequently a
load is carried on one side of the barrow
only and it is extraordinary to see a
Chinaman skillfully balancing and pro
peling it. The upsets and accidents are
remarkably few. when it is considered
that about 4,000 of these vehicles are in
use in the streets, in addition to a large
traffic of other kinds.
