Two opinions were handed down
c T yesterday by the state supreme court
In the case of Sidney Stevens appel
lant vs Lindsay R Rogers the opin
ion was written by Chief Justice Zane
and concurred in by Justices Bartch
and Miner and set aside the judgment
of the lower court and directed a new
trial
The plaintiff sued to recover 3400
alleging that he had given the defend
ant 51 promissory notes to collect for
him as his attorney and that the de
fendant refused to make any state
ment or account to the plaintiff for
the sums he may have collected on the
said notes He also says a part of the
notes were returned to him but that
the defendant by carelessness and
neglect had failed to collect on them
and that when returned they were so
old that collection was barred by the
statute of limitations wherefore the
plaintiff asked for judgment for the
sum named The court below dismissed
the case and taxed the costs to the
plaintiff on the ground that the evi
dence failed to show the plaintiff had
sustained any damages by reason of
the acts of the defendant and that
the plaintiffs action was barred by
the statutes of limitations
The supreme court however ruled
that the notes were held in trust for
the plaintiff and the statute of limi
I tations could not commence to run
against the plaintiffs right of action
until the disavowal of the trust
Bacon vs Thornton Reversed
In the case of James H Bacon ad
ministrator of the estate of William
q t F Aulls deceased appellant vs Jo
r seph Thornton et al the opinion was
written bv Justice Bartch and con
ri curred in by Chief Justice Zane and
t District Judge Rolapp The portion of
the decree and judgment appealed
from was reversed and the cause re
manded with directions to grant a new
trial
The action was brought by the
plaintiff to determine the adverse
claims of the defendants to a two
thirds interest in the I X L mine and
for an accounting of the defendant
Thornton for the amount of ores taken
by him from the mine
The trial court decided the plaintiff
was the owner of twothirds interest
in the mine and entered judgment in
favor of Defendant Thornton for
1620 for improvements made on the
property
The plaintiff then prosecuted an ap
peal from that part of the decree re
i lating to the allowance for improve
1 ments and the supreme court sus
tained the appeal on the ground that
the evidence did not show that the
work done by Thornton was any im
provement t the propert
Bray Talked Through His Hat I
Vii am T Bray whose wife obtained
a divorce from him a few weeks ago I
came back from a trip to Denver a 1
couple of days ago and raised the claim i
that the divorce had been obtained
without his knowledge of any such pro
ceedings being instituted He made
quite a good deal of talk about i but
it appears to have been talk and noth
ing more for he was personally served
with the summons by Deputy Sheriff
J Boman Cannon before Bray left for
r Denver The files in the district court
show the proceedings were entered reg
ularly and Mr Bray does not seem to
have any just cause for complaint

tion for a new trial denied
Truant School Boys
John Brown a school boy was
brought before Justice Stewart yester
day on a charge of truancy He a
found guilty but appeared to be very
penitent and made promises to do bet
ter which induced his honor to let him
go for this time
A warrant was issued from Justice
Stewarts court for the arrest of an
other of the Brown family whose
Christian name is Joseph The charge
against him is also truancy and he
will probably have a hearing today

i ATiUSEMENTS
Dante the Mormon Wizard as
Oscar El Jason is known outside of
Utah came back to his home last
night after a prolonged absence and
was greeted by a very good audience
at the theatre The welcome given
him his wife and his brOther was of
the heartiest kind and the applause
and laughter which greeted his in
geniously clever acts during the even
ing were hearty and unrestrained The
practice he has obtained since he last
stood before a Salt Lake audience has
rendered him almost perfect and
every trace cf the amateur has long
since vanished He is a deft quick
neat and natty in all his performances
a the most polished professional and
one little way he has of making an
apparent blunder and of turning the
tables on the galleries when they raise
a guffaw is about the neatest thing
imaginable Eliason has added two
big features to his show one the mid
air bicycle riding originated by him
self the other Hermanns marvelous
feat of catching bullets fired at him
point blank ya squad of militia
This needs by the way a little elab
I oration and explanation to let the
audience know that the cartridges are
I being marked prior to being placed in
the guns It was sufficiently thrilling
however as It was to send a number
of nervous ladies out of the audience
into the lobby while it was going on
The bicycle feat is one of the most in
explicable and effective imaginable
The young lady mounts her wheel and
at once soars off into space turning
completely over head downward the
wheel working in midair all the time
The secret is a valuable one and past
accounting for The remainder of the
evening was made of the
ya up customary
sleightofhand fats all performed
with sleeves rolled up and all done
with a magical deftness simply bewildering
dering to the beholder I makes up a
rare evenings entertainment and the
popular priced matinee as well as the
final performance tonight ought to b
crowded After the engagement here
Eliascn returns to resume his tour in

as he removed tils haul and ffiade a well

LONELINESS OF THE SHEPHERDS
LIFE
As he stood bareheaded before me the
wind blew his long thin sandy hair
about his brow and he regarded ave with
a strange farofC look in his eyes I met
several shepherds after this and noticed
that same strained expscrskm They Jivi
so much alone sometimes even three or
four months without seeing a human be
ing ILiftt they form this habit of looking
over tho plains hoping that they may
catch sight of scmcone to relieve the aw
ful monotony of their lives
The man sat down quietly beside me
ad ate pparinffly and rather mechani
cally of the lunch always sharing his
morsel with Jack Ws dog I took oWl a
flask of whisky and pouring out some
of i into a cup offered my guest a
drink His eyes beamed with longing a
he saw the liquor and turning on me a
strange frightened look said No none
of that Put i away please I dont
like the sight of it
lke rose to make my departure when he
said You wont go tonisht wlll you
Its too late I wish youd stay in my
hut tonight Its so long since I have seen
a human face over three months A
man only comes onco In a great white to
bring provisions and that is all we see
of humanity from one years end to the
cihcr Do Stay bcinigiht wont you
YIELDED TO THE MAS ENTREATY
Td like to oblige you I replied but
they will be uneasy about me at the home
station But are you sure you know the way
You might get lost
Oh no I replied
The poor fellow hung his head and
looked the picture of despair
How far is the hut i askcu
Only a mile or so I assure you
I agreed to go to it so he started off
at a good pace fearing I might change
my mind I suppose Tne dog ran ahead
barking and I followed on horseback
We soon came upon his hut I was built
of mud sticks and straw with hard earth
for 3 floor The shepherd prepared a cup
of tea the usual beverage of the bush
The sun had gone down behind the low
dg
horizon with the deO effect that it does
at sao cnsaig0 outside on a couple of
rude blocks of wood drinking our re
freshing tea the moon rose sheading its
soft light over this mysterious scene
there was no sound but the distant tinkle
of a sheeps bell and the crackling of
the little fire that was boiling the tea
The smoke went up straight and silerJcy
into the still air The loneliness was bad
enough with two men what must i have
been with one

PASSED A SLEEPLESS NIGHT
This was the story he told me and
there was tno doubt of its truth
It was now gtCt n1 Jaite and the shop
herd Insisted on my taking his cciuch an
i old canvats cot with a plain gray btacilceit
I spread upcn it So as I vas tired I ac
cented the offer and lay down < for a
mpthts rest My cOn nln streitched his
tail figure en the grass outsltta Jack lay
btitwcian us I
The Eitriangeness of the situaitlon to
gether with the strong tea seemed to I
banish sleep from me and I must have j I
been lying there for an hour with my
i eyes closed but quite awake when pres I
I ently I heard something stirring Open
ing my eyes I saw the shepherd sifting
I pgi in i thc son foSh i head rest I
t ing on his hand He seemed uneasy and
i i began restlessly to pass up and down in
i front of the hut The log remained still
i but I felt that he was awake and watch
I ing his master as he walked nervously
I i backward and forward in the moonlight
i Presently the shepherd stopped in front
and came with a hesitating step toward
the door He entered slowly and stoop I
I ing down upon his hands and knees
crawled stealthily to the chair
crwled stealhiy on which
my coat was hanging He put his hand
in the breast pocket and drew forth the
flask of liquor
CONQUERED HIS CRAVING FOR
GOOD
And now he seemed bewildered as if
some strange emotion had seized upon
him and then fell upon his knees a if
in prayer
Jr
Suddenly he seemed to rise and in
stead of drinking the liquor placed the
flask uiniboucflved back toto the pocket of
the coat Then stretching himself on the
floor with an apparent air of comfort
and satisfaction he went off to sleep
The whole proceeding so haunted me
that it was brad daylight before I closed
my eyes When I awoke the sun wag
high in the heavens My host had pre
pared breakfast After our meal he spoke
freely of the nights proceedings to me
I told him I had seen ail that had taken
place
I thought it might be so he said
The old craving came upon me so strong
too but if I ever prayed for strength it
strengh
was then Well at that moment there
was a hand laid on my head a calmness
came over me that I had not felt for
years and when I returned the flask to
your pocket I knew then as I know
noW that another drop of liquor will
never pass my lips As God I my judge
I believe I was the angel hand of my I
dead wife that rested on my feverish
head It is all over
head al now thank heaven
and I can leave this lonely place and re
turn to the world again wufch safety
After the story of the shepherd Mr
Jefferson pointed out a moral from tho
play of Rip Van Winkle He subordin
ated everything to the drinking habits of
old Rip He magnified his dissipations
and showed how the Derations of Mora
Van Winkle were at times warranted
Then with hope again kindled the men
in that gray audience went back to their I

I MORMONS IN MONTANA I
I Apostle Joh Henry Smith ming J
a Tour of the State
Butte Miner Among the visitors L
I Montana at present is a distinguished
I member of the Mormon church in the
person of John Henry Smith one of tne
112 apostles Mr Smith who is a vet
I eran in the faith and o paftriarchial ap
pearance is here on a church mission
I i being no less than the establishment
of Mormon congregations in this state
The apostle may or may not have been
in Butte if he was he kept his mission
quiet if not he will be here but he was
run down by a reporter of the Great
Falls Tribune to whom he made the fol
lowing statement and explanation
I the mission of the apostle is suc
cessful in the state it is reasonable to
believe that there will be a congrega
tion in this city and that being the
case the story he tells will prove of in
terest
Mr Smith told the reporter he went
to Salt Lake in 1849 from his former
home in Iowa and at once became one
of the leaders of his people He has
occupied many prominent positions in
I the church and is now one of the 12
i apostles of Salt Lake He has never
I been one of the political leaders of the
church but has confined his efforts to
work in behalf of the church in relig
ious matters
He is not in the state for the purpose
of attempting to proselyte believers in
other faiths but desires merely to meet
those who were born in Mormon faith
He states that there are thousands of
Mormon girls who have scattered
throughout the northwest since mar
riage and many of them are in Mon
tana Hundreds of young men of the
church have also left Utah and come to
Montana The Mormons who have come
to this state are in the main those who
have drifted away from Utah since
polygamy was suppressed and hun
dreds of the women were not married
until they reached Montana while the
men have had only one wife each
They have found no Mormon organ
ization In this state and have either
not attended church have to
atended or some
extent associated with the existing
churches the Presbyterians and Chris
tian churches attracting a large ma
jority

and to gather together all hose in a

There are now in the state 12 elders
who are laboring with Apostle Smith
and they are perfecting organizations in
various towns They will not find many
members in northern Montana but In
the portions of the state which were
early settled there is a host of Mor

At Butte there are several hundred

large number in Madison Deer Lodge

There are about 40 in Fergus county

will be begun

EDITORIAL DEEDS OF THE WAR
Atlanta Editors Slaughtered the
Yankee Union Soldiers
Atlanta Ga dispatch in the CTlcago
Tribune There was 0 time said a
veteran newspaper colonel lounging at
his desk in an Atlanta office after the
work of the day was done when Atlanta
journalism numbered among Its adher
ents the wealth if not the wit of the com
munity That was during the last days
before Sherman captured the tow when
there were seven daily newspapers run
ning full blast They cost only 50 cents a
copy in Confederate money and an ordi
nary citizen would buy 0 copy of each
at J go home with the entire batch under
his arm to read the latest accounts of
Yankee atrocities and southern victories
In those highly colored accounts of the
campaigns in Georgia Tennessee and Vir
ginia it was made to appear that the gal
lant gray jackets were always on the dead
run trying to keep in gunshot of the flee
ing federals and firing at every jump and
a Yankee dropping at every shot One
would have supposed in reading those
narratives that the Confederate army
was made up of giants Who strode forth
only to conquer and to pile up laurels as
i stacking hay around a pole
The Yankees of course were a very
inferior race of people wouldnt fight
and when they did stop long enough to
lire a gun always aimed enoug1 the
m rk so that the loss on our side was
insignificant compared with the myriads
of our foemen who were mowed down
at every discharge The journalistic pro
fession lost some of its brightest liars
when the Confederacy fell It was just
prior to the sege of Atlanta while Sher
man was slowly drawing the coils of his
mighty host around the city that Henry
Watterson made his appearance on the
scene He was then running a paper
called the Rebel running it by getting
out a copy semioccaslonally and run
ning it out of the way of the Yanked
Watterson was in his prime and in his
element all at the same time Arro
gant vehement fiery and ferocious he
nan the rebel with a yell and from Nash
ville Tenn he worked his way in ad
vance of the federal army to Atlanta His
columns fairly blazed with defiance and
his accounts of the doings of the south
ern troops read like tales of the valiant
crusaaers 01 toe miuaie ages
But the Rebel did not thrive in the al
ready overcrowded atmosphere of Atlanta
and about the time that Shermans ad
vance guard crossed the Chattahoochee
river the Rebel yelled its last yell Wet
terson became attached to the staff of
the Southern Confederacy as an editorial
writer That newspaper was remarkable
for tine ability of its staff to keep away
from the front A gentleman who might
have been anywhere from 125 to 150 years
old was engaged to act as financial editor
and has articles were marvels of logical
argument going to show in what manner
one Confederate dollar could be ma 5e
worth 150 in silver or 1 in gold and at
least 10 in Yankee greenbacks
Of the seven newspapers in existence
when Sherman reached the Chattahoochee
river only one lived to tell the tale That
was the Atlanta Intelligence The editor
packed up his effects and skedaddled from
Atlanta before the siege began and set
tled at Mllledgeville For tho sake of the
cause however he left a small job pres
here and every day a man representing
bUn issued a little strip printed on one
side which was filled up with the most
glowing accounts of Confederate successes
in Virginia and Yankee disasters It was
nothing to see the announcement of 20
OCO or 30000 federal troops shot down by
the Confederate riflemen with a very tri
fling loss on our side and to those who
chose to believe such stories the reports
called for much imbibing of spirits and n
consequent flow of animal spirits The
fire eaters were in their glory and it was
not until Sherman crossed the river that
they began to get out of the way Wat
terson finally lft l Atlanta retreating
slowly and stubbornly as far as Macon
and hurling defiance from the top of every
sand ridge at Sherman and his cohorts
of invaders
