SHEEHY TO BE
DISMISSED
Police Committee Investigate
Charges Against Officers.
O'MEARA 10 BE SUSPENDED
Outgrowth of the Fracas in
James Gill Received
Broken Leg.
Which
a
The police committee investigated the
charges against Officers Shcehy and
O'Meary last night, and at the conclusion
of the investigation voted to recommend
to the council at its next meeting that
Sheehy be dismissed from the force and
that O'Meara be suspended for 30 days.
Tin? charges were the outgrowth of the
encounter between Sheehy and James
Gill a few days ago in which Gill's leg
was broken and the charges against the
officers were preferred by James H.
Lynch. At the meeting of the committee
there were present Aldermen Ferns, Britt,
Noyes, Cannon, Kelly and Siebenaler,
and the witnesses for and against the
officers.
James H. Lynch was the first witness.
He said he saw Sheehy last Monday after- j
noon. The officer was trying to arrest a !
, man named Gill in the alley in the rear of j
j Savin Lisa's store. Sheehy held Gill by |
the coat collar and was bumping his head !
against the wall of the building in a
brutal manner. A small dog belonging
to the witness ran out and barked and
Sheehy struck the dog with his club; wit
ness remonstrated with Sheehy. About
that time Sheehy threw Gill down, the
officer falling on top of him in such a
I manner that Gill's leg was broken: wit

ness, assisted by others, then took Gill j
into witness' place of business, and called
j dragged him the length of the store al
though witness had previously told him
! that he was willing to go with him. On
a hack to take him to the hospital;
Sheehy attempted to get into the hack
but witness would not allow him to do so.
A little later Sheehy and O'Meara came
into witness' store and told him he was
under arrest. He was alone in the store
j at the time and lie asked the officers to
: wait until some of the employes returned
I but this they refused to do. Witness was
i in the act of removing his jumper when
! O'Meara grabbed him by the throat and
! threw him against the counter
J
$
that of Lynch, j
the way to the jail the officers treated
I him in a. rough and violent manner. Wit
I ness said he did not use abusive language
I toward Sheehy.
The testimony of P. A. McKereher was
practically the same
I He said he had told Sheehy during the
1 encounter with Gill that he (Sheehy) was
; no better than a yellow cur to treat a
man as he was treating Gill.
Frank Hutton testified to having seen
the encounter. When the officer threw
j Gill down he heard someone remark that
it was a cowardly thing to do; witness
I did not consider Gill in a condition to j
; make a serious fight; when Gill fell there 1
1 was no occasion for the officer to fall on
; Gill; witness was of the opinion that the
! officer did it purposely; when Gill had
i fallen he heard him call the officer some
I hard names.
Mrs. J. H. McDonald's testimony cor
roborated that of Lynch; she said the
officers refused to allow Lynch to put on
his coat and vest, and that while he was
removing his jumper, O'Meara grabbed
and then i

Meyer Gansberger saw the officers drag
Lynch out of the store, and handle him
roughly: the officers were very much ex
cited and had apparently lost their heads.
Officer Sheehy then took the stand. He
said he had been called to the alley to re
move a man who was trying to force his
way into Mary Smith's house; he found
Gill in front of the cabin, and told him to
get out of the alley. Gill told him to go
to hell and get out of the alley himself.
The witness grabbed him and the man
resisted. Gill said "I can lick you, you
big----—— -." McKereher en
couraged Gill, and about this time a dog
ran tip and bit the witness; he struck the
dog, for which Lynch and McKereher
called him abusive names; he was trying
to hold the man when he fell. Witness
did not know how, and he saw that the
man's leg was broken; Lynch sent for a
hack and put Gill into it, but would not
permit witness to get into it; witness was
afraid the crowd in the alley would mob
him.
Jailor Tom Boyle testified that Shcehy

came to police headquarters and asked
If he should bring a man to the station
whose leg was broken. Witness told him
he should not. A little later a man named
Hutton came in and asked if Sheehy had
been arrested, and said they ought to
hang the----. Hutton also
remarked that he thought the change of
administration would do some good.
Chief Mulholland testified that Sheehy
was a good officer, and said it would be
better if the city had 36 such officers.
Officer O'Meary testified that he went
with Sheehy to arrest Lynch; Sheehy
told Lynch to come along; that he was
under arrest, and Lynch refused to do so.
Lynch then went into a room and bolted
the door. The door was opened by Mrs.
McDonald and after some parleying wit
ness grabbed Lynch and took him to jail.
This concluded the testimony.
Britt moved that both officers be exon
erated. Noyes moved that both be dis
missed from the service; Siebenaler sug
gested that O'Meara be exonerated and
Sheehy suspended for 30 days, and Kelley
wanted Sheehy dismissed. It was finally
agreed that the committee would recom
mend to the council that Officer Sheehy
be dismissed from the police force and
that O'Meary be suspended for 30 days.
The committee also investigated the
complaint against Poundmaster Whit
more against whom charges were pre
ferred by Mrs. ePters. The complainant
alleged that the poundmaster had killed a
valuable dog belonging to her and that he
had no occasion to do so. It was shown
that the dog had bitten a man who had
complained to the police, and the pound
master had killed the dog with the own
er's consent. The charges were dismissed.
SHEEHY IiAS RESIGNED.
Officer Daniel D. Sheehy presented
himself at police headquarters this morn
ing and tendered his resignation to Chief
of Police Mulholland. Sheehy stated
that he was called to the place where the
trouble occurred to arrest Gill who was
j making trouble for a woman, and he had
! no idea of doing other than his d'uty at
j an Y time. He prefers to resign ratlua
|
!
■ than go over the whole matter again be
fore the council. The chief accepted his
I resignation.
j O'Meara's sentence of suspension of
! thirty days will take effect next Wedn.es
• day, providing the city council accepts
j tin report of the findings of the police
j committee, as it will probably do. The
j council will meet o:i Wednesday the lllth,
I and on thirteen days later, or May 3, the
■ new administration will take charge of
I the municipality. As the tenure of office

1
Nance O'Neil was given many tokens
of the good will of Butte theater goers
at the Gland last night, and the talented
young actress, whose genius has won for
her a foremost place in her profession,
i i ea ves Butte with the impression that the
people of this city are not so cold after
all.
The opening night of her engagement
in Butte was disappointing, the house
not being half filled. On the following
night there was a larger attendance, and
last night the theater was packed to the
doors. The audir-ince was demonstrativ
ing Miss O'Neil a dozen or more curtain
calls for her powerful impersonation of
the character of Camille. No better in
dorsement than that was ever given an
artist by a critcal Butte audience, which,
generally speaking, is not frequently pro
voked to great enthusiasm.
Herbert Carr as Armand agreeably
____,....... many Butte friends by the
! fire and force which he injected into the
j character, and he easily shared the hon
| ors of the evening with the popular
actress. The rest of the support was only
tolerable.
Miss O'Neil will return to Butte after
her return from Europe for a week's en
gagement.

The eastbound Great Northern passen
ger train Tuesday went through a bridge,
five miles from Big Sandy, every car leav
ing the track. The passengers were badly
shaken up but escaped serious injury.
William McCurdie. division road master,
was riding in the engine cab at the time
of the accident, and in jumping struck
his head, receiving serious injuries. The
cause of the accident was the high water,
which had washed out the earth under
the bridge, thus leaving it without sup
port.
The Seattle Times of last Saturday is
authority for the statement that George
W. Graham, formerly in the newspaper
business in Helena, was "touched" for
i $3,000 in the bad lands of Seattle a few
i nights ago. During a fight that resulted
when Mr. Graham discovered he had been
! robbed he succeeded in recovering $1,800
I of the money. Mr. Graham has had the
j woman arrested and will prosecute her. ^
'i Boulder Age April 13: This morning j
j occurred the death of Thomas McNally at ]
' the age of 6S years. "Uncle Tom" was one
! of the old band of gold hunters, the
j placer miners of former years who came
west to seek their fortunes. In the early
60s he and Hon. Ed. Cardwell came to
Colorado together and in '63 came to Mon
■ tana, and mined at. Virginia City and
; other placer camps of the early days. De
j ceased had lived in Boulder and vicinity
; for about 30 years but of late has been in
failing health, his death being caused by
bronchitis. He has no relatives in this
1 vicinity but has a sister at Chippewa
I Falls. Wls., another in Arizona, and sev
1 eral nieces. Thomas Murray, with whom
I he was formerly associated in business,
j and Ed. Cardwell, with whom he came
west, have been notified of his death and
! the funeral will bo held tomorrow, and
' the body buried in the Valley cemetery.
The ease of County Commissioner
Smith for soliciting a bribe was tried in
the district court at Boulder yesterday.
The case was very interesting, and
brought out some very sensational testi
mony relating to Smith. Deputy County
I Clerk Scharf testified that he had offered
I Smith as a loan the sum of $175 for influ
J ence in the matter of appointing the
; clerk of the district court, vice Henry
j Rickerts resigned. Charles 7.. Pond also
j testified that he had offered Smith a loan
i of $350 if he would vote as county com
! missioner for the appointment of the
1 same officer. Both of the above testified
I that they had long talks with Smith in
: regard to the appointment, and also that
I Smith had promised both his vote as cotn
\ missioner. Several witnesses were put
on the stand from different points in the
i county, who testified that Smith's reputa
' tion for truth and veracity was not of the
I best. One of the features of the trial was
; that of the jurymen, Mr. Southworth.
1 of Basin, was placed on the witness stand
in the defendant's favor, and his testi
mony was that Smith's reputation was
! not very good for truth and veracity.
I William Fergus, chairman of the board
of county commissioners, was one of the
most important witnesses during the day,
) and was cross-examined very closely by
i counsel. Dennis Driscoll and others of
Smith's former bondsmen refused to act
when his trouble became known, and
■ Smith had to skirmish for new bondsmen.
The jury was out about an hour, and re
turned a verdict of not guilty.

WHERE MEN WEAR CORSETS.
A gentleman who recently returned
from New Guinea says that the fashion
of tight lacing has been evolved as an in-
dication of superior civilization and cul-
ture, but they show the remnant of bar-
barism in that it is the men who appro-
priate all personal adornment. Young
men of fashion wear a belt about eight
inches wide, made of stiff bark, which is
laced on so tightly that it gives a slim,
wasp-like appearance to the figure.
