Morning Missoulian - 1892
IAN. VOL. S. MISSOULA, MONTANA. WEDNESDAY MORNING. AUGUST 17, 1892. NO. 58 MORNING MISSOUL MONDAY'S TRAGEDY. Bums is Interviewed but Says Very Little. He Denies the Shooting Despite the Identiflotion of Goldenbogen His Condition. Burns, the assassin of Maurice Higgins, was seen in the jail by a Missoulian reporter yesterday but bad little to say of the tragedy except to deny that he - was the man. Burns says he came from Seattle Saturday night and bad formerly worked on the grade of the Great North em railroad in the Flathead at the camp of the Corey brothers. With this excep tion he had never been in Montana before. He professed entire ignorance of the shooting and said that he had never seen either Paul Goldenbogen or - Maurice Higgins. When asked where he bad been just previous to bis arrest he said in a saloon on Main street, and in reply to a question said that previous to that he had not been on the bridge. This is one lie direct to his credit as Sheriff Houston tracked him from the bridge to the saloon and from there to the place of arrest. A box of cartridges of 32 calibre was also found on the bridge, but Burns had thrown the pistol into the river. When asked how he ac counted for the fact that he had been so positively identified by eye witnesses of the affair, including one of the victims Burns said he could not account for it. He knew he was in a bad fix, but knew nothing of the shooting. He also said that he was sober when arrested. .Burns is a small, thin featured man, with a pointed nose, rather red at the tip. His hair is a sort of dead brown, and he has a small, thin mustache. He says he is 27 years old. He wore at the time of the shooting a pair of cheap trousers, dark gray in color, with a lighter stripe, and a black silk or sateen shirt. Wm. Lyons, the supposed partner of Burns, who was arrested soon after the shooting by J. M. Kennedy at a point some distance below the Bitter Boot railroad bridge, was also seen by a Missoulian reporter yesterday. He says he knows nothing more of Bums than that he came in on the same train with him on Saturday. The two men fell in with each other at Arlee, and Lyons Bays' he met Burns several times on Sunday night, and from time to time took a drink with him. He was arrested by Police Officer Blindorf just before the shooting, charged with the theft of a ring. The ring was not found on him and he was released, with an admonition to get out of town at once. TheD, according to Lyons' own story, he returned to Front street just in time to see Maurice Higgins and Paul Goldenbogen lying in front of the Exchange saloon. He Baw nothing of Burns at this time, Shortly afterwards, being quite drunk, he wandered down .to the Bitter Root . railroad bridge, for the purpose of taking a Bleep. Lyons says he did not see Burns for some time previous to his own arrest till the next day at the hospital. Goldenbogen's condition continued favorable all day yesterday, but it is im possible to prophesy in advance the ter mination of his injuries. The case is a hard one to do anything with. The ball entered the left side after going through the muscles of the prm and penetrated to the lung as is ehown by a frequent coughing of blood. Whether the ball A. 1, il ' ,l , ... wem hu me way mrougn tne lung it is impossible to determine, but Dr. Mc. UuIloMgh feels satisfied that it did not reach the right lung. The extraction of the ball is impossible first because it would necessitate a cutting open of some of the vital parts and second because its location can not be determined. Fortun ately the recovery of the patient does not depend on getting the bullet out. It may remain in the body permanently and perhaps never give any trouble. Today and tomorrow will be the critical time for Guldenborgen and if he gets through these .without an unfavorable turn his chances for recovery will be good. He got along well all day yesterday despite a report which gained currency in the afternoon that he was failing rapidly. United Typotbetce, Toronto, Ont., August 16. The United .

Sheridan, If the Gazette reporter who in bis re cent political goBBip has been saying that the republicans are not in it this fall bad been at the business meeting held by the republicans last night he would have had occasion to take it all back. The meeting was largely attended and was a lively and enthusiastic one and showed by its spirit that nothing is to be allowed to go by default in the coming struggle. The meeting was called by the young men's republican club for the purpose of making arrangements ;for the reception of Gen. George A. Sheridan, the famous orator who will speak here tomorrow evening.

Cashier Hayes could be found today and it is believed the former has left for Indianapolis in the interest of Iron Hall, of which he is supreme justice. In relation to the bank Assignee Stockwell said: "Lawyers for both sides in the Iron Hall receivership suit, with consent and approval of Judge Taylor, came here to take away the case and securities of the bank and move them to Indianapolis.

The police claim to be able to handle the strike within the city limits. Buffalo, Aug. 16. The Third Vice President Walter Webb of the New York Central is in the city, having been called here by the gravity of the situation and possibility of this great four track road being affected. In conversation Mr, Webb said: "The strike has not extended to our road and we are not aware any of our men are anxious to join in the strike. The only danger we have felt is that our men might be forced from their posts by other strikers. From what I learn I think switchmen would have been driven from their posts last night had it not been for calling out of the military. All we ask is protection from outside violence. Buffalo, Aug. 16. The Lehigh Valley road claim they have got four trains out of the yard this mornine. Thev Bav they will have no difficulty in moving freights after today. The military aspect of affairs at Cheetowaga is of a very pronounced character. General Doyle has pitched his headquarters at Williams Street station, just outside the city limits, and from there he issues his command to his men. Buffalo, Aug. 16. There were no in dications this morning of a strike on the Central. It is known that a committee of switchmen were Bent to Superintendent Burrows of the Central, however, yesterday for conference. Mr. Burrows was out on the road, but the statement of the men was forwarded him. A reply was received but it gave the men no satisfaction. ., 1 The situation in the Erie' and Lehigh yards this evening presentB but little change from yesterday with the exception that soldiers are patrolling the yards and martial law is in force. Very few trains are moving and neither road ap pears to have men enough to keep trainB clear of freight cars. Brigade head quarters are established on Williams steeet and from, there Gen. Doyle directs the movement of troopB. Two car loads of out-of-town workmen arrived over the Lehigh but were switched off somewhere between the yards and the city. Men expected on the Erie were also switched off and are waiting orders. Three soldiers were slightly injured today by an explosion of torpedoes placed on the track by strikers. . The Central road to day discharged ten men who refused to handle an Erie car. Central switchmen are excited and will strike on the slight est provocation. It is reported that special agents of the Reading road are receiving men for Buffalo and over 250 have been Becured who will be sent at once to take the place of strikers. That road it is said, has determined to force the fighting and defeat the men at any codt. To precipitate matters it has been decidtd to call upon al! employes of the Lehigh division not on strike and ask their intentions; if they appear wavering in loyalty to the com pany they will be discharged. Vice-President Walter Webb of the New York Central has arrived and consulted with the officials of that road. He re gards the situation as grave but thinks the military can handle it and that his road will not be affected. Rochester, N. Y., Aug. 16. A special from Lyons says: A great amount of perishable and time freight is arriving there from Buffalo and is being trans ferred to Fall Brook, run down to Corn ing and thence over the Erie to its des tination. Owing to the action of the Fall Brook and Central Hudson in accepting freight from the Lehigh and Erie it is thought a general strike may be ordered on those lines. Officials at Lyons think it probable the switchmen will be ordered out all along the Central and West Shore in sympathy with the Lehigh and Erie strikers. Syracuse, N. Y., Aug. 16. The 41st company of national guards is under orders to be ready at a moment's notice to go to Buffalo. Auburn. N. Y, Aug. 16. Capt. Kirby, of the 2d company, Wheeler Rifles, has received orders to hold his company ready to go to Buffalo on a moment's notice. Chicago, Aug. 16. It is rumored that all switchmen on the Erie line in Chicago, which is the old Chicago and At lantic, are ordered on 'a strike. A re porter who called at the Dearborn street depot was told that those switchmen only worked as far into Chicago as Fifty- first street, On calling there the switch men said : "The Erie road proper ex tends westward only to Marion, Ohio This is an auxiliary to the system. We are waiting to hear the word from Grand Master Sweeney, He is now in Buffalo. As soon as he speaks we will quit and so do all switchmen running into Chicago, The strike may not reach Chicago for a week yet, but unless the demands of the strikers in the east are granted all the great railway lines will be tied up with in ten days. Buffalo, Aug. 17. New York Central men went out at 12:30 this morning. The entire Fourth brigade has been ordered out. It consists of 1100 men' and a battery. These troops were under arms when the order to march came and they have started for Buffalo on special trains. The Central men had a meeting tonight which lasted half an hour. Grand Master Sweeney was there, and when the men finally decided to go out he ap proved their action, and at 12:30 they quit work in all the Central yards between Buffalo and Cheetowaga. It is estimated that there are five hundred men out in these yards now besides all out on the Erie and Lehigh. The strike, in being followed out on lines predicted yesterday, will now extend until all the big roads of the country are tied up. The striking of the Central men was ac complished very quietly and marked by orderly conduct. , SBERIDAN TOMORROW. He Will Speak at the Opera House To morrow Night. Gen. George A. Sheridan the famous orator will addreBB the people of the city tomorrow evening at the opera house. He is a republican and speaks of honest, intelligent and patriotic government as viewed from that standpoint; but this does not affect the fact that what he has to say will be found interesting and in structive to republicans, democrats and people's party people alike, as he is first of all a patriot and a lover of his country. Gen. Sheridan's addresses outside of the information which they convey, are always intensely interesting and pleasurable by reason of a god-given eloquence with which he is inspired. He was in Montana in the campaign of 1889 and many people will still remember how he moved them to tears or laughter at his will. A special invitation is extended to the ladies to be present at tomorrow night's address. INDIGNANT MINERS. Union Colliers in France Viciously Attack a Manager. Paris, Aug. 16.
