WEATHER FORECAST: Tonight and Thursday fair. Cooler tonight. The Kalispell Bee. V 5 O'CLOCK. ~\ VOL. II, NO. 21. KALISPELL, MONT., WEDNESDAY, JULY 10, 1901. FIVE CENT3. BIG REWARD FOR BANDITS Looked Close to the Kalispell Officers Who Arrested ONE PERCY DE WOLFE Known to Be an All Around Crook. Thought He Was With the Train Robbers. Percy De Wolfe who arrived In Kal ispell Monday night from St. Marys, was arrested last night by Officers Beaudette and Eakright. De Wolfe is alleged to have been implicated in the big cattle rustling case m Teton and Cascade counties sometime ago in which Frank Smith, who was arrest ed in Kalispell by Officer T. J. Hannah was a participant. After Smith was arrested he was taken to Great Falls and sentenced to a term in the peni tentiary. Officer Hannah was a wit ness in the case and while in Great Falls became familiar with De Wolfe. When Hannah saw De Wolfe yes terday he recognized him immediately and during the day De Wolfe was kept under surveilance. He was drinking quite hard and when slightly intoxi cated told that the United States mar shal was after him, but that he had got away from him and twelve Indian police. A telegram was sent the United States marshal, asking him if Ije wanted Percy De Wolfe, as he was in Kalispell. An answer was received saying to arrest and hold him and that a deputy marshal with a warrant for him would leave Helena for Kalispell on the 10th. De Wolfe was arrested on the street last night about 7:30 and was taken to the jail. When searched no gun was found and only about $5 in money. When he first came to Kalispell he claimed to have $300. What he did with the balance, he could not or would not say. It is not known what charge will be brought against him until the deputy marshal arrives, but it is supposed to be thde charge of cattle rustling. At the time Smith was arrested and tried De Wolfe was wanted on the same charge, but could not be found. lie having succeeded in keeping out of the way of the marshals and Indian police. He is known to he a bad man and has an unsavory reputation on the east side of the range. After the arrest was made and the prisoner was being searched the dis covery was made that in almost every respect he tallied with the descrip tion of one of the men who held up the Great Northern train near Malta. The more the officers and others would look at the prisoner and com pare him with the written description the firmer grew the conviction that he was one of thetrain robbers. , The report spread that one of the fa mous trio had been captured and con siderable excitement ensued. The offi cers were besieged by people inquiring as to how it happned and how the prisoner looked. When told that he was the same in height, weight and general appearance, even to a slight cast in his left eye, congratulations were showered upon them and the big reward seemed almost In reach. C. H. Smith, the expressman in charge of the express car that was robbed, was notified and a description of the man under arrest given him. He soon settled the question by saying that all the men in the hold up were smooth faced, while the prisoner has a mustache. The prisoner made strong objections to having to lay in jail, and sent for Attorney Brennen, who tried to get out a writ of habeas corpus, but was refused. The par ticulars as to why he is wanted will not be learned until the arrival of the deputy marshal tonight. BIG TIMBER WOOL.

By Associated Press* Columbus, O., July 10.—The demo cratic convention convened today tin der peculiar circumstances.

Interesting to Kalispell Folks, Taken From Saturday's Gazette. Ore samples recently taken out of the Grand Central, one of the Northern Montana Co.'s group of claims on Blacktail mountain, show a good rock which indicate such good values that it must be very encouraging to the management. It is a honey-combed quartz, carrying hematite of iron, and in adjoining claims this ore has been found to be quite valuable. The Nor thern Montana has now arrived at that stage where extensive development is the order, preparatory to the Installa tion of machinery. Work will be com menced on Monday next on a working tunnel, entering at a point on the low er ledge, so that the upper ledges can be cut and exploited and tbe entire property in this way explored at a minimum cost, and with a view to the mill requirements. P. Bergstrom is showing some of the finest samples of gold quartz from his Ida claim, on Fourth of July creek, ever sen in the camp. The specimens of ribbon quartz are freely covered with gold, and it would not require a very large shoot of this kind of pay ore to make a comfortable stake. Frank Turner has taken up his traps and has a credit of eleven bearB for the season, of which two were brown and nine black. Two of the black were of the larger variety, weighing about 400 pounds each. The season usually closes about June 15, but Mr. Turner says the last one caught a few days ago, was in as good fur condi tion as any of the previous ones. He expected a much larger catch, with the number of traps he had strung out, and believes this animal is be coming scarce in these parts. About the first of August Mr. Turner will start for the mountains back of Fort Steele, B. C., where he will put in a season trapping. Fred. Whiteside, manager of the Howard Placer Co., was a Gazette caller on Monday last. Mr. Whiteside says that everything is moving along smoothly and satisfactorily at the hy draulic works and they are confidently looking forward to a big clean up at tne close of the season's operations. Twelve men are employed by the company. Two giants are turned on the ground, and up to July 1 nearly 20,000 cubic yards of dirt had been the others on national issues. There is no reaffirmation of the Kansas City or any other platform. Tnere is no mention of previous plat forms nor Bryan. The sub-commit tee of seven who drafted the platform stood four to three in favor of the conservatives, but the full committee rejected both the majority and mino rity reports and then picked out such parts of each which were voted on section by section. Three planks of the Johnson men, on franchises of steam end electric railways, and cor poration taxation, were adopted as amendments to the majority report and things were generally reversed from what had previously been the course of the convention. handled. The president, John O'Rour ke, of Butte, is expected on a visit to the property about the 15th inst. Mr. Whiteside went to his home in Kalis pell to spend the 4th, and will visit there a few days before returning to the camp.

SCHOOL UNO MAY BE RELINQUISHED To Individual Claimants Who Have Taken up Claims. A special from Helena, July 8tli, says the state land department re ceived a decision of importance from the secretary of the interior relative to the state relinquishing school land upon which settlers had filed desert claims prior to survey, and taking lieu land therefor. The department had held that where settlers filed up on school land prior to survey they could not hold it unless they made a homestead entry, desert entries not be ing recognized. Mrs. Ann Tovey has a desert claim in the Big Hole country, Beaverhead county. When the land was surveyed it proved to be school land, and she asked the state to relinquish the land so that she would not lose her desert claims. The state agreed to do so providing the government would al low it to make a selection of other or lieu land for that relinquished. The matter was referred to the secretary of the interior, who has replied that if the state desired to relinquish the section of school land involved it might select other land. The ruling is of importance, as there are a number of similar cases pending. COLONEL HAM LEWIS. James Hamilton Lewis, he of the "sun-kissed whiskers," ex-representa tive from the state of Washington, may be a statesman, philosopher and poet, but he is not much of a financier. At least he wasn't a few years ago, before he entered congress. He tells the following story at his own ex pense: "When I opened my first hank ac count not so very many years ago I didn't have much idea of how banks conducted business. I made a de posit of a few hundred dollars, was given a bank book, which showed the amount of money 1 had to my credit, and a check book. Upon returning to my office 1 carefully placed the bank book in my desk and forgot all about it. I carried the check book in my pocket for convenience sake. It was a new sensation for me to draw checks. 1 was like a child with a new toy. When I needed money, or any body else wanted some, all I had to do was to go down afte rthe check book. I was the proudest man in the state of Washington. I imagined that my bank account was as long as that of J. Pierpout Morgan or John D. Rockefeller, or the moral law itself, for that matter. Finally, however, I found that I had overplayed my hand, as they say out west. One day I re ceived a notice from the bank that my account had been overdrawn to the extent of $37.50. I didn't really know what it meant or what to do. What do you suppose I did do? Well, I'll tell you. I walked into the bank with the notice of overdraft, drew a check for the amount, handed both to the paying teller and started out ot the bank. I was called back, and matters were explained to me, muen to my humiliation. Since then I have kept a little closer tab on the stub end of my check book."
