THE MflRGH TERM
DISTRICT OCURT IN REGU~ LAR SESSION. An Old t'hnrsre of Grand Larrcnj Agninsl Isaac Kingery Disininsed— Motions ami Demarrers [Heari Jnry discharge«!. District court—the regular March term—convened Monday. Judge Show ers presiding, with Clerk of the j Court Thomas Duncan. County At- J torney Lew. L. Callaway. Sheriff I Haines and Court Reporter Monaghan | present. Joe Bush was appointed court j bal iff. An old charge of grand larceny : against Isaac Kingery was dismissed i Monday. The indictment was against 1 him and his brother Henry, and was ; found by the grand jury when Isaac ; was but lti years of age. Newton Rodgers was the victim and complain- j insr witness. On this charge Isaac was | re-arrested about the time of the Kingery-Delnor jail delivery. -V short time ago a petition, praying for the dismissal of the charge against Isaac, was presented to Judge Showers and County Attorney Callaway. The ne . . . , , , . tition was signed by 64 leading citi I j j /.ens of Ruby valley, including Newton Rodgers. The petitioners represented that they were the neighbors of Isaac Kingery, whom they knew to be the industrious head of a family, enjoying the confidence and good will of his neighbors. They also represented that the further prosecution of the case would be in the nature of a persecu tion and in conclusion asked that the charge against him be dismissed. When the petition was being con sidered the county attorney stated, that in his opinion there had never been sufficient evidence to convict Isaac, and at the time the deed was committed Isaac, who was a boy, was largely influenced by his elder brother. He therefore asked the court's permis sion to enter a nolle proseque, which was granted and Kingery Avho ap peared in court on his own recogniz ance. was discharged. The jury panel for the March term was as follows: Jno. C. Bell, August Anderson, Jasper Cox, Newton Orr, J. P. Jones. T. B. Swttz er, W.J. Finney, James Boyd, E. U. Davis, j A. G. Bower.

GOLD 'Cyanide" Tnrner Tells Abont his Struggles to Make the Process a Success—the Revenue is Xetting 81.00« Per Day. R. B. Turner, the well known min ing operator, was in town Tuesday on business connected with that banner gold producer—the Revenue. Mr. Turner, who is better known among the mining men of the state as "Cya nide" Turner, probably understands the process from which he has been sobriquetted better than any other man in Montana. The cyanide is Mr. Tur ner's pet hobby—he has made a study of it for years. He fought for it when other mining men pooh-poohed at the cyanide theory, but he has lived to see the success of the process and he is not very old either and in the meantime cyanide has made him a rich man. A Madison county mine was selected by Mr. Turner to make his experiment in cyanide and as a result the Revenve mine at Richmond Flat is probably one of the most prolific producers of gold in the state. Mr. Turner stated to a M adisonian reporter that the new mill was treating between 50 and 60 tons of ore per day, which was netting over $20 per ton, and that the com pany clean-up for February would ex ceed $25,000. The mill is saving from 87 to 92 per cent, of the fire assay at a milling cost of about $2.75 per ton. The method of working the ore is to crush the rock dry, using a Dodge crusher and two sets of Cornish rolls, the whole being dried by a revolving drier The mill is now treating ore by cya nide at about 20 mesh. L. A. Dunham is the general super intendent of the company and he is em ploying, at the mine and mill, about 50 men. Mr. Turner states that there is enough ore in sight to keep the mill busy for the next year. Mr. Turner is very well satisfied with the progress the cyanide process has been making recently. As to its successful treatment of ore he calls at tention to the Murcer mine in Utah, the big cyanide mill at Florence, Colo rado and the Revenue. He has a broth er,J. K. Turner, who is operating a cyanide mill at Gibbonsville, Idaho. Speaking of the Monitor mine, the property of S. K. Knox and J. R. Reel, he said the property was making a splendid showing: that the shaft was down 165 feet and a cross-cut was being run for the vein. METZEL CONFIDENT THAT THERE WILL BE NO DIVISION. Hf is of I lie Opinion Thnt the Iiill Will Not Pass the House encouraged by the Interest of Con«'itiirnt« •Inst now prospective legislation most interesting to citizens of Madison countv is the Alderson measure. i ntro dueed in the bous annex a arly in the session to annex a portion of Madison county to Gallatin. On this subject the following letter from Sena tor Metzel is especially interesting and encouraging to the citizens of Madison county: Helena, Feb. 111.—Editor Madisonian: I noticed in your paper of the ninth inst.. an article on Alder son's bill to segregate a portion of our county and attach it to Gallatin county. I am glad to see tlia the citizens of the home county are awake and thorough ly aroused on the subject. Rest as sured her representatives in the fourth legislative assembly thoroughly ap preciate the gravity of the situation and stand ready to do their part to see that this measure receives the consid eration it deserves: indefinite post ponement. I am pleased to see that petitions are being circulated and gen erally signed for it will strengthen our hands here to know that the peo ple of our county are opposed to the measure. I am glad to see that in the article that I have referred to, you resent 1 he imputation of the Anaconda Standard that Representative Isdell is at best neutral, if not actually in favor of the proposed division. I know that Major Isdell is against the division, and will do all in his power to see that the bill receives its death blow in the house. He is thoroughly alive, and it is al most needless to add loyal, to the in terests of his own county. The same may be said of his colleague. Mr. Ros sitor. If the bill ever passes the house, and not for a minute do 1 believe it will, it will be only after they have exhausted every means of opposition, and will not be their fault. Allowing that it may pass. I am on my guard, and ready and eager to de feat the measure here in the senate, and believe I can do so. This is a bad place for any county division schemes and especially for those that have as little merit in them as this one. In conclusion let me say that I am thoroughly convinced that our county is well taken care of by her represen satives and for once we are all encour aged by interest desplayed at home by constituents.
