A little of Oorooran'8 biography from
ca 'a a veracious chronicler as Edward

Traders, this nascent journalist states
f r her that Corcoran's "first thought was
i r his loved ones." The stern penalty
cf the law which he is now receiving will
teach him and those of his (Ik to have a
lithe more respect for the rights of other
lrved ones, whom, with are and dynamite,
hc and his co-criminals deprived of the
comforts of a happy home. In order to
EtJl further curry the mercy of Ms read
ers, Boyce quotes fmm a letter written
t Mrs. Corcoran, who 'deplored the fact
that "our once happy home is broken up
ty the unjust administration of the law."
Paul Corcoran was tried hi open court
"by a Jury of his peers, before a Judge of
ur blemished -reputation and defended by
several of the ablest criminal attorneys
'to eat of the Bock- mountains.
But Paul and his infamous associates,
ever 1000 In number, in flagrant violation
of the law, ruthlessly Invaded the sanctity
cf a home where there were "loved ones"
quite as proqtous as those "who oaH him
"husband" and "father." Like demons
tlity raged through the private apart

turethe just reward of years of faith
ful application to business. There they
laid their wicked hands upon everything
that they could safely carry away with

to a less pretentious home, where an un

1 Ik things, were masses of smoldering

they made oath at the same time that
they "were opposed to military restraint"
which was undoubtedly correct One af
fiant actually heard a United States of
ficer swear; but surely no one will believe
this. Otto Freeman went before a no
tary for the sole purpose of swearing
that Captain "Walsh gave him "two sec
onds to get over that hllL" Others made
oath that their revolvers were taken from
them, and one that he was actually made
to work. Mrs. Maggie Malone almost
falntfed when she heard a colored soldier
address insulting language to a prisoner.
Fred Bngman testified that an officer ex
pressed the opinion that "one meal a day
was enough for the prisoners in the bull
pen." To two of the affidavits Initials

a "nigger soldier" "make a lunge at a

Bartholomew It Creedon, however, had
the longest tale of woe of any of them,
covering two pages. Bartie swore posi
tively that he was made to work when he

These affidavits were nearly all made
on July 8. Twelve were sworn to before
L. Leighty, notary at Gem. Edward J.
Flanagan, Justice at Mullan, took his
own affidavit, and three others the rest
These, then are the startling exposures
which have been threatened to be made
public for months which Boyce and
Gompers flaunted over the heads of the
authorities,- at their notorious Cincinnati
meeting. Thej made a thorough canvass
of Canyon creek and Mullan, and these
weak, silly statements are all they can
produce against the military and state
authorities. These are the serious charg
es upon which Edward Boyce promised
his dupes the removal of the troops from
the Coeur d'Alehes and the court-martialing
of General Merriam. This is the non
sensical trash which President McKlnley
was expected to waste his time in read
ing, and many of them, trivial aa they
are are lies.
Several of the "affiants" in question will
be recognized by the readers of the News
as men who were scarcely ever known to
tell the truth. Some of the statements
are so intensely silly that it is charitable
and reasonable to suppose that some of
the1 affiants were drunk -wheir they made
them. They should be presented to the
investigation committee, by all means,
where they will be accepted- as proof of
the general good character bf the troops,
whose special mission It was to quell the
riots and arrest the rioters In this region.
In his salutatory. Edward states that
every member of the Western federation
will receive the first number of his maga
zine free, afer which they are expected
to subscribe, In order that he may live in
luxury. He makes the old threadbare,
stereotyped statement -which for months
has been going the rounds of the socialis
tic papers, that "labor, being the producer
of all weath, is entitled to all it pro
duces." The fulfillment of this idea would
leave Edward on a very scanty allowance,
for It is several years since he did a
stroke of honest toll. Edward says he
will be guided only by the light of his
"own intelligence, wherever It may lead."
If it continues to lead In the direction in
which it Is now pointed, the News will
venture a prediction that It will eventually
lead him Into the penitentiary, as it did
But it Is against General Merriam that
this foul-mouthed blatherskite principally
directs his dirty and abusive language.
A "pusillanimous tool," a "pompous
fraud," In command of "black brutes."
and he states further of him, and the
News particularly calls tlie attention of
the people of "Wardner to this sentence:
"He. although far past that -age, held high
carnival In 'Wardner society, with women
whose cheeks had long since lost the blush
of shame"; and this from the slimy pen
of a oreature that accuses soldiers of in
sulting the women at Gem.
If any one entertains the slightest
doubt that Edward Boyce is a degenerate
of the most degraded and dangerous type,
let them read the initial number of his
Miners' Magazine. Every page shows it
to be the work of a depraved criminal
defending outrages of the law, justifying
the violators and denouncing the authori
ties for the action taken by them in the
suppression of the crimes and the arrest
of the criminals. Edward Boyce has
shown his hand several times before, but
he never unveiled hl3 wicked purposes
more completely than he has In the first
number of this first specimen of his edi
torial efforts. It is the low muttering and
malignant curses of a convict, whose
blood-stained hands are opposed to all
law, all order and all government, and
who would. If he dared, fling the Goddess
of Liberty from her pedestal and the Stars
aad Stripes from the capltol building and
substitute therefor the blood-red flag ol
anarchy. His previous career gave evi
dence of this the periodical of which he
is the author, confirms it.

Lincoln's birthday was pretty generally ob

and the grain marketd locally were quiet, In
the absence of quotations from other cities. In
other lines there was some activity, and the
week opened with much more liberal produce
receipts than usual on the first -day of the
week. The high prices nave attracted some
liberal shipments of apples, and the market is
quite well supplied with this kind of fruit at
prices ranging from ?11 60 per box. The egg

made around 14c per dozen for round lots, al

Decision of Appellate Court Cnttie- Too
NEW YORK. Feb. 12. The appellate di
vision of the supreme court Friday
last handed down a decision restraining
Senator Clark, of Montana, and the di
rectors of the United Verde Copper Com
pany from selling the mines and other
property belonging to the corporation.
As a matter of fact, the sale took place
January 9 last, just a month before
the decision of the appellate division was
handed down, so that Its ruling Is prac
tically valueless. i
The decision was upon an appeal from
an order rendered by Justice Glldersleeve
in special term, vacating an injunction
obtained by Professor George A. Tread
well, a shareholder In the company, re
straining the corporation from selling the
property, on the ground that the interest
of the minority holders would be sacri
ficed. It was also alleged that under a
scheme of reorganization, prepared by the
directors the company was to cease to
be a New York corporation and become a
West Virginia company. The reason for
this change was, it was stated, to avoid
tho heavy taxation Imposed in this state.
H. G. Atwater, of the .firm, of Atwater &z
Crulckshank, attorneys for the United
Verde Copper Company, said today:
