KID CURRY AND LONGABAUGH Are Thought to Be the Leaders of Train Robbers BOTH DESPERATE MEN Aad Are Probably Heading for the Infa mous Robbers* Roost Called HoIe-in-the-WalL Special Dispatch to the Bee: Anaconda, July 7. —The Standard's staff correspondent with one of the posse's in pursuit of the Great North ern train robbers, telegraphs from Malta that there is little chance of capturing the fleeing bandits, as they have doubtless already crossed the Missouri and Yellowstone rivers, and are far on their way to the Hole-in-the Wall. The general opinion of the Malta people is that the sheriff has neither the number nor quality of men or horses necessary to make a successful issue of the pursuit, even if the rob bers are still in Montana, which is also doubted. Evidence is accumulat ing that Kid Curry and Longabaugh were two of the robbers. Jack Ellis, who runs a hotel 26 miles south of Malta said to a Standard reporter that the three men passed his ranch late Wednesday afternoon, and called to him to tell the sheriff they were still going south. Ellis formerly knew Curry and thinks one of the fu gitive was the kid. Pete Sanders, an old cow puncher and guide, who ac companied Under Sheriff Kane's pos se, returned today, and said he thinks the fugitives went into the Bad Lands and if not already across the Missouri are lurking in that Becret and almost inaccessible region infested by Sit ting Bull in Indian war days.

Many people will remember the "Low Boy" preacher who used to hold out on the street corners of Great Falls and nearly every other city of the state several years ago, and shout salvation, while his wife sang sweetly and passed the hat. The gen tleman's graft at that time was to make as much noise as possible, so on the street corners as possible, so as to evoke the wrath of the police and be run in. Then a howl would be raised by kindly disposed and un wary people, about freedom of speech, the oppression of the officers and a lot more things which they knew nothing about, and the fakir and his wife would be released, well advertised and for a time would reap quite a harvest. If he could by no means persuade the police to pay at tention to him the preacher's graft was poor and he passed on to the next town. It took a long time, but the people of Montana got onto the gentleman finally and he dropped out oi sight. The following from the Truckee, Nev., Silver State, would in dicate that he is still doing business in the religious graft line, and that the people of Nevada were also get ting onto his curves: The article says: "J. R. Rice, known as the "Cow Boy Preacher," was arrested by Consta ble Lavoy last night, charged with disturbing the peace. Rice arrived here from Lovelock yesterday on No. 6, acompanied by his wife and three small children. A street meeting was held last night, after which the "preacher" visited the saloons and acquired what is commonly known a 'glorious jag.' The constable arrest ed Rice early this morning and locked him up. He was tried in justice court this afternoon and discharged. Rice admitted having been drunk; but dis claimed having disturbed the peace of the community and the justice held the same opinion. "The 'Cow Boy Preacher' and his family went east on No. 6 today. Rice was so drunk that he could hardly board the train. He is the worst kind of a fakjr and should not be lowed to remain longer in any town than he did In this."

By Associated Press: London, July 8.—The case of Earl Russell, involving the trial of a peer by the house of lords after the sus pension of functions of this kind for sixty years, may offer an object les son in the form of a majority verdict which will tend to dignify the tradi tional dignitaries of twelve ordinary men in the box. New precedents may be created by a fresh committee em powered to examine the journals of the house of lords. The essential facts will be that a radical peer will be exposed to a ina jority verdict from a house represent ing the old Toryism of the privileged classes and that any member answer ing the roll call of the lord high steward will be both an unsworn jury man respecting issues of fact and i judge regarding complex questions of divorce law in England, and in Ameri ca. The results of so remarkable an experiment in criminal procedure can not be safely forecasted. An aban donment, or at least a reconstruction of the antiquated procedure of trial by privileged jury would seem more likely than the substitution of a ma jority for an unanimous verdict in or dinary criminal practice. The Nevada judge who granted the divorce decree to Earl Russell has in deed been instrumental in raising a series of questions of exceptional in terest. This is the first issue of the validity of the divorce under the laws of Nevada and the decisions of the United States supreme court. There is the fundamental .question of the power of any foreign tribunal to re lease an Englishman from the obliga tions of marriage contracted in his own country and to enable him to re turn to England with another wife. There is the issue of privilege, with the anamalous procedure of trial by the house of lords when there is a charge of felony against a peer and this is the traditional inheritance of social conditions which have been transformed by the normal develop ment of political Institutions. The Nevada judge has opened a Pandora's box for the confusion of the privileged order and for the be wilderment of hairsplitting lawyers. Tne best consolation which the stern moralist can find is the hope that the Russell case may lead to the enact ment of uniform divorce laws of the states of the American union and may open the way for a closer approach between England and America in leg islation for the defense of the sanc tity of the marriage. In Denmark the pretty custom is in vogue of exchanging children from city to country during the summer months. The little rustics are cared for and entertained by the parents of the town children, who are strengthen ed and made happy by the farm life. The exchange affects over 10,000 youngsters from Copenhagen. CONSIDINES HAVEHEARINC On the Charge Of Murdering Ex-Chief Meredith STARTLING EVIDENCE Introduced to Establish the Fact That the Consic'iaes Were Hunting Meredith to Kill Him. a i of a in re re by a of a of in of By Associated Press: Seattle, July 8.—The preliminary hearing of the Considines, on charge of murdering Meredith, ex-chief of po lice, was begun today. About twenty witnesses are to be examined and the prosecution expects to establish the following facts: A few moments before the shooting Meredith was seen walking leisurely toward Guy's drug store from the cor ner of Occidental avenue and Yesler way. At this time Officer A. H. Mef l'ord was standing at Guy's corner and the Considine's were across the road on the opposite side of Yesler way. As Meredith approached Mef ford was seen to beckon to the Con sidines, who came across the street on a run. As soon as they had reach ed the pavement and were within'a few yards of Meredith a revolver shot was fired. John Considine then ran into Guy's drug store, with Mere dith at his heels, Meredith firing his first shot as he passed through the door. The prosecution expect to have wit nesses to show that Tom Considine had a revolver thirty minutes before tne fatal shooting occurred and that the trousers he wore contained a re volver pocket, worn and marked with grease spots trom a revolver. The re volver Tom Considine had, the prose cution will attempt to show, was handed to Officer Mefford, who got rid of it in some manner. The prosecu tion will present evidence in an at tempt to show that the first pistol shot was fired by the mysterious "third person" who traveled with the Considines during the afternoon of the shooting. This mysterious man goes by the name of Simons and evi dence will be introduced to show him to be a dangerous character and one well versed in the art of handling fire arms. It will probably be shown, too, that this man Simons has had some thing to do with other affairs of a character similar to that of the Mere dith murder. The prosecution will prove that at the time of the first revolver report the bullet was seen to plow into the street. There will be witnesses who will swear to this, and there will be witnesses who will swear that they counted six distinct reports, the first one undoubtedly from a revolver, then to loud reports and then three more levover shots, these three being loud er than the first revolver shot. The defense will have several witnesses in an effort to show that the action of John and Tom Considine was purely in self defense. It is said that some members of the police de partment will be called by tlie de fense. The preliminary hearing will prob ably occupy two days. John B. Hart, esq., will be associated with Prosecu ting Attorney Fulton in the prosecu tion, and Col. James Hamilton Lew is conducts the case for the defense.
