Says He Was Appointed to Fili
Of the City Corral—Council Will Meet
Tonight in Special
Bright, new locks adorn the gates of
the city corral, the citadel of the newly j
appointed street commissioner, John J. ;
Cotter. This does not presage extrava-j
gance on the part of the new administra- j
tion, but was made necessary by reason |
of the fact that ex-Street Commissioner j
Brannagan, who by the way contends j
that he is not yet in the "ex" class, de- [
dines to give up the keys to the locks of j
the gates of the corral, maintaining that :
he is yet the legal street commissioner
and that Mr. Cotter is nothing more than J
a usurper. However this may be, Mr.
Cotter is in possession and the men work
ing on the streets are in his employ.
Captain Brannagan did not present him
self at the corral this morning, which
simplified matters considerably for Mr.
Cotter. Cotter's bondsmen are C. A.
Sloan and P. W. Murray.
Mayor McCarthy has appointed Edwin
M. Lamb city attorney to till the vacancy
caused by the resignation of Attorney
Stephen DeWolfe, which was handed to
the mayor yesterday. When Mayor Mc
Carthy was asked regarding the situa
tion this afternoon he referred an Inter
Mountain reporter to Mr. Lamb. That
individual was seen in his office in the
Hennessy building.
"is the report that you have been ap
pointed city attorney true?"Mr. Lamb
was asked.
"It is true," he replied. "I was ap
pointed by Mayor McCarthy last even
It is understood that Charles Little
will be deputy city attorney.
The council will meet tonight in special
session, and it is anticipated that the
meeting will be as full of surprises and
interest as the two previous ones. The
belligerent aldermen are sawing munici
pal wood and saying nothing, and are
probably reserving what they may have
to say for tonight's session of the coun
cil, which, the wise ones say, will be a
warm number.
The report of Charles P. Tobin, sani
tary inspector, was filed in the office of
the city clerk this afternoon. The re
port shows that during the fiscal year
just closed 40 arrests were made for
violation of the health ordinances, and

John Caplicc Co
210 and 212
W. D. Smith of Miles City, special stock
detective for the government, arrived in
the city at noon today with P. M. Price,
who is wanted in Texas for the alleged
theft of cattle twelve years ago, and left
for the south at 4 o'clock. Price was cap
tured on a ranch near Hinsdale, 25 miles
west of Glasgow, last Sunday, the posse
that captured him consisting of Smith,
Hary Lund of Fort Benton and John W.
Collins of this city, all stock Inspectors
and regulators of the cattle rustling
fraternity. After securing Price the offi
cers made a search of the place and
found 12 beef hides from which the
brands had been cut; therefore they
could not determine to whom the cattle
from which they had been taken had be
During the stay in this city Price was
kept in the county jail. Judging by the
fact that the Texas authorities have
been after him for 12 years the charge
against him in that state must be se
vere. It was only a short time ago they
succeded in locating him on a ranch n
Valley county, this state, but it was not
long afterwards before plans for his cap
ture had been consummated. When con
fronted by the officers with drawn guns
he made no resistance. He is strongly
suspected of having carried on a cattle
rustling business in the northern part
of this state, but it is said that for some
reason not generally known on the out
side it is difficult to convict a thief in
Valley county. In view of this fact the
officers concluded to turn Price over to
the Texas authorities and Smith was
deputized by the government to take him
to them.
The case of the state against John Mee
han, charged with mayhem, the biting of
the nose of J. P. McGowan a few days
ago, was called for adjustment in Jus
tice Bliss' court this afternoon, but the
prosecuting witness failed to put in an
appearance and the matter was thrown
out of the legal hopper.,- The defendant
was on hand and stated that he had seen
McGowan this morning and the latter
had told him he intended to leave town
until the trouble blew over.
Right after the assault was committed
McGowan was very anxious to have Mee
han brought to justice, but later on he
showed a disposition to quit. After Mee
han's arrest he procured a bond for him
and then, had it reduced, winding up his
leniency by disappearing entirely to pre
vent a conviction. In view of this fact
Roy S. Alley, who appeared for the state,
asked the justice to tax the costs up to
him and it was done. Mr. Alley and the
other members of the county attorney's
force say they intend to make an exam
ple of some of those who put them to so
much trouble and the state to the ex
pense of bringing suits and then repu
diating them by either not appearing in
court or else swearing to something dif
ferent to what they maintained at the
time of the commencement of the ac

Gramling's Turkish baths, 41 N. Mala
Salt Lake Herald: Something of the
magnitude of the Highland Boy proposi
tion at Bingham, and why it has excited
the interest of eastern investors, can be
understood when it is known that the ore
bodies of the property are so vast that
experts cla'im millions of tons are now in
sight. The company has now in operation
a bucket tramway from the mine to the
railroad station, a distance of two miles,
capable of handling 250 tons of ore or
more a day. Its magnificent new smelter
is now started, and when the furnaces are
all running, the plant will be handling 240
tons a day. Various estimates on the con
tents of Highland Boy ore have been
made, and the very lowest of these gives
the average at 5 per cent copper and $6 a
ton in precious metals. Upon this basis
it will only be a few days now until
24,400 pounds of practically pure copper
will be turned out from the big plant
every day. At 16 cents a pound in the lo
cal market (and the price is now three
quarters of a cent above that) this pro
duct will represent an income of $3,904
per day; and with $6 a ton for the gold
and silver added«, it amounts to $5,344. or
$160,420 a month—thirty days—and for the
year nearly $2,000,000.
It has been stated by some who pretend
to know that the Highland Boy ore will
run much higher than 5 per cent; that
the poorest of the ore will even exeped 5
per cent, and the best will carry 30 per
R H. Channing, an old representative
of the financial combination now in con
trol of the Highland Boy, has been des
ignated as superintendent at the com
pany's mines, and R. T. White, who has
been in active charge of its construction,
is named as general superintendent of the
new smelting plant. Mr. White's as
