She Changes Her Plea of Not
Guilty to Guilty.
May be Turned Over to the Utah
Authorities- Shepherd
Katie Bush, the young woman who a
few months ago threw some hot liquid
from a bottle on Mrs. Julia Hogarth in
Justice Nichols' court, changed lier plea
of not guilty to guilty in department No.
2 of the district court this morning and
(Judge Clancy sentenced her to one year
in the penitentiary, which is the mini
mum punishment for the alleged crime,
She Was represented by K. O. Jackson,
who made to the court a real tellin
peal for leniency.
l l > *
"Have you any statement to make?"
asked the judge of the prisoner after it
had been given out that Miss Bush de
sired to change her plea.
"Your honor," answered Mr. Jackson,
in behalf of his client, "it seems that the
defendant has been more sinned against
than sinning in this matter. I was a
witness to the assault. Miss Bush ac
cused Mrs. Hogarth of having robbed
her of .$200. In addition to this Mrs. Ho
garth accused Miss Bush, in lie" presence
of others, of being diseased, which had
a tendency to make the defendant des
perate. The offense committed by Miss
Bush was not very serious. The liquid
she threw on Mrs. Hogarth was not
vitriol: it was simply a caustic acid. She
was driven to desperation by the acts of
the complaining witness. Mrs. Hogarth
cares nothing for the case save the fees.
She has left the state, and 1 ask the
court to he as lenient as possible with
the prisoner."
"Well, Miss Bush." said the judge, "in
view of the fact that you have changed
your plea, I will give you the least pun
ishment possible, mie year in the peni
tentiary. I believe that ihe ends of jus
tice will be as well satisfied as though
I made the punishment more severe."
The circumstances of the trouble be
tween Miss Bush and Mrs. Hogarth was
caused by the disappearance of $200 be
longing to the former. Mrs. Hogarth
conducted the lodging house at the
northwest corner of Park and Wyoming
streets and Miss Bush was one ol' her
lodgers. One day Mrs. Hogarth called
Miss Bush from her room into her own
apartments to try on a waist she was
making, and, according to the story told
by Miss Bush. Mrs. Hogarth left the
room while Miss Bush was there. When
Miss Bush returned to her own room she
looked for her money and it was gone.
She accused Mrs. Hogarth of having
stolen it. and followed the accusation
with lier arr°st on a charge of grand
larceny. The defendant was given a pre
liminary hearing in Justice Nichols'
court, but as no one had seen Mrs. Ho
garth steal the cash and it had not been
found in her possession the justice could
do nothing save dismiss the action. Be
lieving implicity that Mrs. Hogarth was
guilty and would escape legal punish
ment, Miss Bush became desperate and
before leaving the court room threw the
acid into Mrs. Hogarth's face. None of
the liquid caught Mrs. Hogarth's eyes,
but it sprayed her silk waist and shoul
ders in good shape.
Shortly after the affair Mrs. Hogarth
moved to Spokane.
The county attorney asked Judge
Clancy today for leave not to fill' an in
formation against James Shepherd,
charged with having bought ore from a
boy, knowing it to have been stolen. The
ground on which the request was based
was that the ore had been gathered from
the dump of a mine several months be
fore it was sold and at that time no ob
jection had ever been made by the Ana
conda company, which owned the prop
erty, to the ore gathering.
About two weeks before Shepherd was
arrested, however, an order was promul
gated prohibiting boys from gathering
the stray bits of ore, and on the alle
gation that the ore bought by Shepherd
had been garnered after that time a war
rant for his arrest was issued.
The prosecuting attorney admitted
that the evidence adduced at the prelim
inary hearing was not strong enough to
secure a conviction in the district court.
The judge granted the request and
Shepherd was discharged.
The turn of affairs in the ease of the
state against Fred De Lyle has caused

some apprehension on the part of the
county attorney in regard to the result
of prosecuting forgers. In Judge Clan
cy's court this morning C. P. Connolly,
the county attorney, mentioned the case
of the state against L. G. Livingston,
who is in jail awaiting trial for having
passed a worthless check on the Mon
tana Iron works. He said the defend
ant was wanted in Utah for forgery and
the authorities there had once secured
requisition papers for his return to that
state, hut Silver Bow county at that time
had not felt justified in separating itself
front hint, Continuing, Mi;. Connolly
further said:
"We are unable to prove in t It is trans
action that these parties had money in
the bank and it will do us no good to
go to trial. My object in speaking of it
is to give the Utah officers an oppor
tunity to come and get him."
A date for Livingston's trial has not
been set, and it is not likely that any
thing will be done in that line in this
Piper Duncan McGregor, a well known

The far-famed Treadwell mine, on
Douglas island, Alaska, paid out, on Oc
tober 28, the fourth quarterly dividend |
of 37% cents per share to its stockhold
ers. The amount paid out since January
7. tit October 28, was $300.000, a sum that
averages about $1.000 for every day of
that time. October's gross receipts at
the mine were $107,087, and expenses $36,
The October report of the mine showed
5-10 stamps crushed 58,407 tons, yielding
$68.646, with a saving of 1,083 tons sul
phurets, worth $30,173. The ore averaged
$1.83 per ton.
New York. Nov. 28.—Henry A. Atwater,
of the law firm of Atwater & Cruik
shanlc. said today that a suit had been
brought in the state supreme court for
the appointment of a receiver for the
United Verde Copper company at
Jerome, Ariz., and the railroad leading
to Jerome Junction from the works.
United States Senator William A. Clark
is one of the largest stockholders in the
company, which is capitalized for $3,000,
000 .
Mt. Atwater said that the suit was
brought for the purpose of preventing
the sale of ihe property, with a view to
the re-organization of the company. The
minor stockholders, who are interested
in the proceedings, fear that they are to
be frozen out in the re-organization, and
have taken these means to block the
deal. The company was organized under
the laws of this state in 1883, but as the
laws governing corporations became
more severe, it was advisable to give up
the New York charter. Out of 300.000
shares, the holders of 299,000 voted to dis
solve the company as a New York cor
poration. To this end the property will
he sold but will he bought in by the ma
jority stockholders.
'I'he purpose is to organize a new cor
poration under the laws of West Vir
ginia. w ith a capital of $3.000,000, and to
transfer all the property in exchange for
i stocks and bonds, which will he divided
among the present stockholders pro
j 'i'he new suit to turn the property over
to a receiver threatens to unset the re
organization scheme, and involve the
property in long litigation. The mine is
one of the largest producers of copper in
the United States.

Sergeant Conrey says:
