MILLIONAIRE BUTLER IS
ON TRIAL FOR BRIBERY
"Fulton. Mo., Feb. 3. In the trial
today of Colonel Ed Butler, the mill
ionaire politician of St Louis, charged
with bribing members of .the house
of delegates in that city, J. K. Mur
rell, formerly a member of. the house
of delegates and agent for the alleged
combine that sought the passage of a
city lighting bill, was the principal
witness. Mr. Murrell was among those
indicted. He went to Mexico, but was
induced to return to St Louis and turn
state's evidence. - I
Murrell told of the house of dele
gates combine; of their meetings, the
various propositions regarding the
lighting bill and the attitude of the
"boys" toward legislation.
He recited that the combine met and
decided on $75,000 as the price for
which they would pass the bill. Sub
sequently, he said, he had a conference
with Butler, which he summarized as
ofllows: j .
"Butler asked me what we wanted to
pass the bill. I told him the toys' ex
. " 'Well' he said, 'you fellows can
have $47,500; not a cent more.'
"Butler came to my office voluntarily
I did not send for him.
Murrell said he reported Butler's ul
timatum back to the combine. He
said he met Butler for the second time
regarding the lighting bill negotiations
November 28, 1899. The bill was pass
ed on the night of that day. .
"Butler repeated his proposition on
this occasion,1 said Murrell. ( '
Mr. Murrell then told"5! the mem
bers meeting at the house of Delegate
Lehman, where he said the money was
distributed h ' V .
"Each member's name was called,"
said Murrell, "and we went and got
our jmcknge of money."
H"How much did you getf
"I got 12500." said Murrell.
John Helms, another member of the
combine, corroborated much of Mur
rell's testimony, naming IS members of
that body who were Interested In the
bribe money. He told of a particular
at which the latter said that he had an
offer of $47,590 to pans the lighting bill.
$20,000 of which he displayed given
him In advance to show good faith. A
motion was made and carried "that Mr.
Gutke was Instructed to return thr.
money and say It was not enough.

Butte. Mont.. Feb. 8. A letter
turned over to the polk yesterday by
the landlady of a cheap east side lodg

Ave men and a woman, whom the po
lice, believe were intending to com
mence holdup operations in the near
future, and to whom the taking of hu
man life would be of no object If It In
terfered with their plans.
The letter was addressed to Ruby
Taylor, Denver, Col., and was signed
"Jack." It spoke of having received
$200 from the woman, and stated that
operations were about to begin, and
suggested that she send Harry or Jim
as some one might have to be put out
of the way. , J
.Just how far the other four are con

the writer, "Jack," Is believed to be a
desperate characler, as In the letter he
speaks of having . knocked a man on
the head In Denver, and of having put
another out of the way, but from the
tenor of the letter It appears that It
was for some personal grudge. 8
It may be several days before further
developments are unearthed, though
detectives are putting all their time
on the case.

It is natural to rub the spot that hurts, and when rheumttie
pains are shooting; through the joints and muscles and thej are
. inflamed and sore, the sufferer is apt to turn to liniments and plasters
for relief; and while such treatment may quiet the pain temporarily,
no amount of rubbing or blistering can cure Rheumatism, because it
is not a skin disease, but is in the blood and all through the system,
and eTery time you are exposed to the same conditions that caused
the first attack, you are going to have another, and Rheumatism
will last just as long as the poison is in the blood, no matter what
you apply externally. Too much acid in the blood is one cause of
Rheumatism ; stomach troubles, bad digestion, weak kidneys and
xorpia liver are otner causes
which bring on this painful dis
ease, because the blood becomes
tainted with the poisonous mat

severe, for it seems to affect
