GOOD OLD TIMES IN MONTANA
Early Days Recalled by tha Death of
FIRST TRIAL AND SUBSEQUENT EVENTS
Harrr Haskell Tells of Rome tfcsea
la Which the Late Senator
tenders Vii Feraenallr
Iaterented la the O'a.
The death of former Senator Wilbur F.
8anders at Helena; Mont., last week
waken recollection of early life In Mon
tana In the minds of several old Omahuna
who were personally concerned In many of
the stirring border Incidents of the '.
Among the old-time friends of flandrrs IS
Count John A. Crelghton. Another is Harry
A. Haskell, for many years superintendent
of The Uee's menhanlcal department. Mr.
Hnskell has on extremely vivid recollection
of Banders, whose assresslvenes and cour
age, combined with his profession, that of
the law, forced him to the front in the
settlement of quextlons Involving the right
of men und punishment for mlscfreds. Mr.
Hnskell witnessed the conviction, before a
jury drawn by the vigilance committee of
Virginia City, of a man named Oeorge
Ives, who ld killed another man. The
lawyer appearing for the prosecution wa
Sanders. Ive swung at eundo'wn.
Panders' mother was a lineal descendant
of Aaron tturr. Ife was born In New York
In 1K34, went to Ohio, was there admitted to
the bar, but before he got an opportunity
to practice much, the civil war broke out.
He organized a company and took It Into
the union army, where he remained until
fcrced to leave hy sickness. "The young
officer went to Montana, where his uncle,
Sidney Edgerton, was governor of the ter
ritory. In a short time Banders became
the foremost lawyer of Virginia City. Ho
took a leading part In the doings of the
vigilance committee and was credited with
having presided at the hanging of sixty
two men before the establishment of rou
tine law and order made the dlsbandment
of the vigilantes a safe thing.
First Trial In Montana.
Mr. Haskell haa the honor of having
printed the first paper got out In Montana,
the Virginia City Post, in 1M3. It was
about this time that the trial and hanging
of Ives took place at Nevada City, about
two miles from Virginia City. I
"As nearly as I can irmember, Ives
killed a Dutchman because the latter re
sisted the dispossession of a pair of mules,"
says Mr. Haskell. "I know that there was
a mighty lively time over the way In
which the prisoner should be tried. Borne
wanted him tried by a 'miners' court,' but
others desired a trial by 'Jury.' The sldos
divided Into two groups on the street and
after much hot argument It was decided to
select ' twelve men to try Ives. The men
were chosen and were seated In a wagon
In the street. A brilliant young Kentucky
lawyer named Thurman was appointed to
defend Ives. Banders represented the
prosecution. Both lawyers had revolvers
protruding from their pockets. The case
was well fought. Ives was hanged that
evening-. The following winter five bad
men were hanged within twenty feet of an
unfinished drug store where I lived. I think
Banders participated In all of these deal
ings out of Justice.
"I remember very distinctly when Blade
was hanged. I printed some milk tickets
for him a few days before the event. He
was a prosperous man and lived on a ranch
some distance, away. A perfect gentleman
when sober, he was a species of devil when
drunk. I have seen him ride up to a bur-
-bar "Shop; and' make the barber mount his
chair in" Blade's wagon and shave him
there; or walk Into a saloon and shoot all
the glasses and bottles off the bar.
Blade Reached tha Limit.
"Finally Blade's lawlessness got too bad
to stand and he was sentenced to death
'for Inciting others to rebellion,' so the
story goes. Ha refused to pay a $400 fine.
I believe. Banders was a friend of Blade's,
' but I suppose ho took the same fearless
part In this affair as In the others. About
the time the moment arrived for the kick
ing of a barrel out from under the feet
of the convicted man a horsewoman was
seen wildly riding towards the vigilantes.
As soon as It was known that she was
Blade's wife the deal was flnlahed and
when she arrived the man was dead. Bhe
was terribly wrought up. If they had
waited until she arrived I am confident
there would have been no hanging. A
woman was a power In Virginia City In
those days. Forty men who assisted In
the lynching tried to hold her horse and
comfort her. They took her Into a hotel
where her husband's body lay.
"If my memory Is correct Count Crelgu
ton, then engaged In Virginia City In mer
chandising, had started Blade home Just
before the vigilance committee made up
Its mind that the acts of the ranchmen
were getting too .strong.
"Sanders was a fine man, an exceptionally
good and clear type of the pioneers who
Insisted upon good order and fair dealing
before government followed along and got
planted. No one ever doubted bis courage.
It took lots of nerve to serve as he did
for the vigilantes, for many of the crim
inals who ' swung had friends In plenty.
Doubtless soma were often ready and
anxious to avenge the execution of sen
tences." anaers In Politics.
Banders was appointed United States dis
trict attorney for Montana by President
Orant in 1873. but declined the place. He
served eight years In the territorial assem
bly and was a delegate to four national
republican conventions. He waa elected to
Intimation that There is More Behind
the ravlna Klaht Than Appears
on the anrface at
City Engineer Beal and tne city attorney
are looking over the remonstrance against
the paving of Twenty-fourth street. There
seems to be some hope among city officials
that the remonstrance will not pan out
strong enough to prevent the letting of a
contract for the paving. Engineer Ileal
said last evening that, eliminating some
duplicates, the remonstrance contained sig
natures representing 6.8:2 feet frontage.
Only 6,030 feet Is needed to block the
paving under the present law. On the
face of the remonstrance there is enough
to spare to prevent the going ahead with
the proposed paving.
Bhould the remonstrance now on record
be found sufficient there Is no hope for thu
paving of the street until the law la
changed. For a vitrified brick pavement
the city engineer has estimated the cost
at t3 per front fiiot. A sixty-foot lot would
therefore be assessed $180 and the property
owner would have ten years to complete his
payments at the rate of IIS eaeh year.
The existing law holds that the property
owners on Twenty-fourth street must pay
three-fifths of the cost and the city two
fifths. With the city paying for the pav
ing at interpectlons the cost to abutting
property owners would be 44V4 per cent of
the total, while the city at large would pay
65V4 per cent. The total cost of the paving

the senate when Montana was made a state
and served four years. In 1896 he proved
his moral courage by standing for sound
money In a silver country. This Is one of
the stories related of him to cite his brav
ery: In one of his first cases he was opposed
by a certain Colonel Woolfolk. who drew
his "gun" and standing Just back of young
Banders, said: .
"If you put that question again to the
witness I will shoot you." Sanders turned
until he faced the leveled pistol and replied
wHh contemptuous coolness:
"It would be Just like you to shoot a man
In the back."
Then he turned calmly to the witness and
repeated the question with added emphasis.

Negotiations are under way for the sale
of the vacant property at the southeast
corner of Sixteenth and Harney streets.
It Is understood a party of capitalists Is
trying to buy It, with a view to erecting
a six or eight-story office building or a
large retail building. C. C. Qeorgo, who
has the property In charge, Is not ready
to give the particulars of the deal until
it has been closed.
The property Is deslrtble for retail busi
ness, facing both Sixteenth and Harney
streets. It Is 132 foet on Sixteenth street
by ninety-nine feet on Harney street. It
adjoins the property where work Is now
progressing on the Sunderlund-Webster
In the last few months several bids
have been made on the lot, but evidently
at figures at which the owners did not de
sire to sell. In some cases the offers were
for a part of the property, whereas it was
proposed to sell it In one piece. A short
time ago the Relchenberg-Smlth company
offered $510,000 for the corner half. It was
said then that the whole property was held
Ouy C. Barton, E. M. Morsman and
C. E. Yost were the former owners of the
property. Three years ago It passed Into
the, possession of Charles Turner and
George & Co., the consideration being
06.000. Since then tho Bennett building
and the Hoagland block have been erected
and the lot has trebled in value.
Receiver for Bestaarant.
Judge Sutton has appointed Attorney T.
A. llolllster receiver of the Eagle restau
rant at ia4 Douglas street. The receiver
Is ordered to sell the effects In the restau
rant on Thursday morning at 10 o'clock
to the best bidder for cash. This Is the es
tablishment In which Lee Sue was a part
ner and from which he claimed he was be
ing frojsen out by Joe I.ee and Tom But.
The two latter acquaintances of Tsl An
have gotten tired of worrying along under
a court Injunction to treat Lee Sue with
Japanese courtesy, hence have gone to law
to secure the order of sale. They expect
to buy In the chop suey outfit and to once
more bring their idle chop sticks into play.

One trouble about this paving seems to
be that the North Twenty-fourth street
property owners want the same advantages
that were given to the South Twenty-fourth
property people when that roadway was
paved. When the law was in force that
permitted the paving of South Twenty
fourth street the property owners paid one--thlrd
and the city at large two-thirds,
and then the city paid for paving the inter
section. It looks A if there was really more be
hind this paving fight than Is shown on the
surface. There seems to be a fight on be
tween paving brick contractors, and then
there Is the asphalt end to contend with.
F. J. Lewis of Rock Island, 111., is the
owner of considerable property on Twenty
fourth street and he wants to have the
street paved with asphalt, as he Is reported
to be heavily Interested In a number of as
It has been suggestedthat business men
get together and endeavor to have the ques
tion of asphalt or brick settled so that the
street may be paved. As the roadway now
lays It Is a disgrace to a big packing center
like South Omaha. Members of the city
council declare that they are willing to
do anything that the property owners want
and will pa an ordlnnnce for any kind
of pavement that Is preferred.

George McBrlde Returns.
George McBrlde returned Wednesday
night from an extended western trip. He
and Vis wife spent six weeks on the Pa

Carpenter, formerly city clerk of South
Omaha, at his home in Spokane and was
treated royally. Mr. McBrlde says that
"Carp" sent his kindest regards to all
of the boys in South Omaha. Mrs. Mc
Brlde stopped on her way home to visit
her parents ont In the state and Mr. Mc

July Ureuks Death Record.
For tho eleven days of July this year not
a single death has occurred in South
Omaha. In looking over the records of
former years the death rate In July was
generally high,' especially among children.
This record for the present month Is con
sidered something out of the ordinary and
is causing considerable talk about the city
building. Undertakers say that as a, gen
eral thing when there is a depression In all
lines of business the death rate falls off.
Be" that as It may South Omaha people are
certainly enjoying good health this month.
Grading Taxes Comluir Dae.
Grading taxes for C street from Twenty

the same block, I' street from Twenty

from Twenty-fourth to Twenty-fifth street
are now entered upon the city treasurer's
books. The treasurer is ready to receive
payment at any time. These grading taxes
become delinquent on AuguBt 22 of this
year, and from that date interest will be
charged at the rate of 1 per cent a month
until paid. As the taxes for the grading
of these streets is not heavy it Is expected

Morgan Shoots at Woman.
William Morgan Is being hunted by the
South Omaha police for having taken three
shot at Mrs. Louise Miller, Thirty-first and
R streets Tuesday afternoon. Morgan wa
employed at the Omaha Packing plant, and
roomed at Thirtieth and L atreeta. He had
been on friendly term with the woman
for lome time, but yesterday they had a
quarrel. When Morgan started to shoot
the woman grabbed the revolver and held
it so that the shots went wild. Chief
Brlggs looked up the matter and found
that Morgan had secured his time from
the packing company and had left the
city. No effort will be made to apprehend
him as the woman was not injured.

One year ago today the employes of all
of the packing houses In South Omaha and
at other packing plants went out on a

were at liberty to return to work. During
