[HELENA, MONTANA TERRITORY, TUESDAY MORNING, JULY 9 1889.
St. Loits Block,^MAIN street.
Itis useless for any person,^who has bet-n in oar store for^the last month, to say ^Harris,^how's biz ^^ If they wew not^blind they coa!d see ^biz was^good.^ Why was it good with^U6 when every clothing firm in^Helena has been an active mem^^ber of the ^kickers club.
Why,simply because we^showed about as many styles^as all the ofher houses com^bined. And when a man felt^that he did not want to work a^whole yeai for the merchant^tailor, in case he needed a sum^mer suit he put a double eagle^and calls on us, eees just as^well made, just M good fitting^and much moie stylish gar^^ments, and as a natural conse^^quence buys his suit and keeps^us busy.
Didyou ever hear about our^clearing sales I We 1, we are^about to start one, pretty soon,^and you can safely gamble that^what little fur is left on the^hides of some of our moss backs^will fly when they see the^prices we quote. Among them^we will mention some of the^special i ies.
Don'tyou call to miud that^pretty line of Irish tweeds, the
Eroductionof Hill ^ Son, of^^ublin i We had them in two^colors^gray and brown They^were abjut as universally ad^^mired as anything we have of^^fered this 3^*ar. but many peo^^ple thought they were high;^but they were not. The trouble^was, they were not appreciate-^;^but it makes no difference. The^knife goes into them just the^same, and the consequence is,^from this day the f22 is^scratched and $17 appears.
Butwe have plenty other^plums for those to eat who have^money to buy. The express^has brought in HO suits, sum^^mer weights, that were pur^^chased at 60 cents on the dollar^and they go for the same per^^centage. Many of these lots^came in our first put chases and^were marked $20, $22, up to^$28. Now none of them are^marked over $20, and although^it is a rank shame, we have let^some of them out at $10. You^can borrow money at r^per cent,^a month to pay for your next^summers suit and 8' ill be^ahead on nearly any of these^lots.
You'venot heard of any sun^^strokes this year, haveyou^ Do^you know the reason I We can^tell you. We have had no hot^weather; for the same reason^we have sold but few of our^summer specialties in OMata and^vests.
Now,if there is anything we^pride ourselves on, it is selection^of these goods. Just take a^look at our north window. You^will see the prettiest assortment^you ever saw in your life. Mo^^hairs, crepes, pongee serges and^silks; the variety is great and^a-sortment astounding; prices^88 per cent, lower thau they^woidd be if the season had been^propitious. We have seersuck^^ers at $1, coat and vest. We^have ttripe and cro.-s-bar liss-^tres at $5, which our competi^^tors hold at $7. We have in^the finer grades, goods that can^^not be purchased outside of our^house for love nor money. As^we say. the greatest variety, the^greatest prolusion ever offered^to a Montana pubbc.
Infact, ail ^^ur lines are re^^markably low in furnishing^goods. In Hats, in Shoes, all^as cheap as consistent with good^grades and best workmanship.
Acleavef has been at the dis^^posal of over 300 dozen hand^^kerchiefs at 12 1 2 cents each^^pretty things they were, too,^and nearly all gone.
Linenvests at $1 each: last^year s goods at $2.5o. Night^robes, embroidered and plain;^in fact an^ thing you want to^make yourself a second Adonis^you can buy,

NewOrleans, July 8.^The big tight^Is over. Kilrain bas been fairly, squarely,^honestly and honorably whipped in a con^tent in which the beaten man bas no cause^to be ashamed of bis defeat. 1 here is no^manner of doubt that Jake Kilrains is^game man and a good fighter, and the^men who saw him fight to-day will put up^their money on him the next time be enters^a ring against any living man except Sul^livan.
Noaccount of this much-talked-of con^^test will be complete unless the thread of^the narrative is taken up at the time of the^departure of the first train from New Or^leans Monday morning, at 1:30 o'clock.
Tbegreatest difficulty was experienced^by tbe management in keeping tbe people^without tickets off the train, and a force of^detectives was provided in each car. Some^venturesome people, who had no money,^risked tbeir lives on tbe roof of tbe cars.^Just before tbe train was finally made up.^Attorney General Rogers came aboard with^Adjutant General Faires and Col. Clem^Walker, of the governor's staff, and stated^the fight must positively not take place on^Louisiana soil. At first no answer was^made, but the officials were finally told^tl.e men would not fight in Louisiana. It^was expected the troops would appear at^the depot, but of two companies in the city^one could master but forty men^and the other only a baker's dozen.
Inreply to tbe governor for train accom^^modations for troops, the railroad people^replied that the state could not be accom^^modated, since all tbe rolling stock had^been chartered. The governor was, how^^ever, offered transportation with his men^on tbe regular train.
At130 the first train of twelve coaches^pulled out and tbe conductor and engineer^were given instructions to go straight^through to tbe battle ground without a^stop. Aboard the train tbe information^was furnished officially that both Sullivan^and Kilrain bad reached tbe battle ground.^There was scarcely any betting on the^train; tbe passengers simply talked over^the merits of the two men and slept. On^the train were tbe chief of police of New^Orleans, the commissioner of public build^^ings, and, in fact, most of the prominent^officials of the city. The attorney-general^and staff were left at Slidell, and stood at^the railway station until morning, waiting^for a returning train.
Kichburg,where the fight took place, is^ninety-two miles from Meridian and 103^from New Orleans. The town is virtually^owned by Mr. Kicb, and the place covers^over 10,000 acres, extending over three^counties of Mississippi. The battleground^was on sawdust and seats were provided^for 1,600 people).
Thefirst special train reached Kichburg^at 7:40. The ring waa built about an^eighth of a mile from the railroad track,^in a pretty spot, witb tall pines all around,^perfectly level and covered with green^turf. The ling was made M heavy ropes^run through stakes deeply driven in the^ground.
atthe ring side.
Therewas great excitement at the ring^side as Bud Kenaud, Mike Donovan and^Johnny Murphy made their appearance at^9:50. and it became apparent the tight was^actually to occur. On the toss-up for posi^^tion Kilrain's representative, Mike Dono^^van, won, and selected the northeast cor^^ner, and Muldoon, Sullivan's representa^^tive, chose tbe southwest corner. At this^juncture the sheriff of the county made his^appearancf, and in the name of the state of^Mississippi commanded peace and retired,^this being the only effort on the part of the^authorities to interfere with the fight. The^flag of Sullivan, brought from Boston, was^placed in his corner amidst great enthusi^^asm. The sun having gone behind a cloud^there was no perceptible advantage in^either corner.
Kilrainwas the first to make bis appear^^ance, accompanied by Mike Donovan and^Charlie Mitchell. He was greeted w.th^applause, hut wore a very serious air, as if^fully realizing the work before him. As^the crowd recognized the stalwart form of^the big fellow as be jumped into the ring^the cheers were deafening. He looked in^marked contrast to Kilrain, seeming to be^perfectly at bis ease regarding tbe termin^^ation of the contest.
Thename of Pat Kenrick. of New Or^^leans, was offered by the Kilrain side as^referee, but he was not acceptable to tbe^other side, the representative of Sullivan^proposing the name of Joan Kitzpatrick, of^New Orleans, saying: ^I want tbe^fight to-day to take place on the merits^of the men, and may tbe i beat^man win. I have only one name to pre^^sent for the posit ion of referee, and that^one is known throughout tbe state as an^upright, just and honest man. 1 name^John Kitzpatrick, of New Orleans. (Great^applause).
ChasMitchell^I don't know the gentle^^man just named, but 1 think if tbe other^side want to fight tbe one we have namef^ought to satisfy them. Chas. Johnson^would not agree.saying if the Kilrain party^would not take John Kitzpatrick they did^not want to fight. At this juncture Mitch^^ell proposed they toss up to see^which of the above named gentlemen^would act as referee, but this did not seem^to be tbe wish of the Sullivan side, though^the crowd favored the idea. Then Prof.^Kutler proposed the name of a New York^man, but after considerable wrangling over^the matter Charley Mitchell finally said^they were willing to accept Kitzpatrick.^and the announcement was receive! with^cheers.
Mitchellhere went over and examined^tbe spikes in Sullivan's shoes, Cleary doing^the itme to Kilrain.
KitzpatrickI am not very conversant^with tbe rules. This will be a fair contest^of two men and 1 will do tbe best 1 can.^In regard to tbe question as to wb^t t.me^the 90 seconds between rounds shall com^^mence, 1 decide, from the time a man fails.
Hardingat this moment stepped up to^Kilrain, and, placing $1,000 in his hands,^told him it was sent by Mr. Fox for him to^bet witb Mr. Sullivan. Kilrain at once^went over to Sullivan and offered to bet^him that sum he would win the fight. Tbe^bet was immediately taken up by Sullivan^aad the money, 82.000. deposited in tbe^hands of tbe referee. Both being bow^stripped, it was apparent to everyone pres^^ent the great superiority possessed by Sul^^livan over his antagonist in the matter of^size and development, the muscles of bis^arms standing out in big welts, bis driving^power appearing tremendous, and he seem^^ing in the very best of spirits.

Kilrain, after one or two^feints on the part of Sullivan, rushed In^and Sullivan, securing a cross-buttock bold,^tried to throw the Baltimore boy. but he^broke away and landed a stinger on Sulli^^van's jaw.

gnent's jugular, he, too, failing short, and^llrain going down near bis own corner*^his aim appearing to be to avoid punish^^ment.
Hound4^Sullivan commenced opera^^tions by landing heavily w.th his left on^Kilrain s jaw. They then clinched and^tell heavily, Sullivan on top. Kilrain was^carried to his corner, while Sullivan walked^to his unassisted.
Hound7^Both men sparred eauti^ usly^for an opening, but soon clinched and in^^dulged in some sharp short arm work, Kil^^rain getting in three or four good ones on^Sullivan's ribs and a sharp right bander on^Sullivan's right ear, drawing blood, which^was claimed and allowed for Kilrain.

HoundU ^Was very brief, Kilrain nimbly^slipping down to avoid punishment.
Hound10^ Kilrain came up looking very^serious. As be showed no disposition to^come to tbe center of the ring, Sullivan^impatiently exclaimed: ^Mand up and tigh*^like a man: I'm not a sprinter, I'm a^fighter.^ As soon as Kilrain came near^bun, Sullivan made a pass, but it fell short,^and Kilrain countered on his stomach.^Sullivan made a rush at Kilrain, when the^latter turned and hugged him. both being^against tbe ropes.

At^tbe termination of this round Sullivan did^not even take his seat, while Kilrain ap^^peared to be very much distressed.
Hound12^Kilrain started this round by^hugging Sullivan, the latter breaking away^and getting in a good left-hander on Kil^^rain's neck. Kilrain proved a tricky-^fighter, evading successfully Sullivan's^right-handed swings for a knock out,^clinching Sullivan and attempting to^throw him, but without success, and upon^breaking away made a pass at Sullivan,^but his blow lacked force.

Visitof the Father of the Condei^at Boulder.
Boulder,July * -[Special to the Inde^pendent. ]-David Bryaon. the father of^lieorge D. Bryaon, arrived In Boulder Sat^^urday to visit his son. Sheriff Halford^corded to him all the courtesy that was In^his power to grant. The interview was^necessarily held before the keeper placed^over the prisoner, and was of such a nature^as to cause all to shed tears. Three times^the father and son met, one on tbe outside,^tbe other on the inner side of the cell, be^^fore either one, choked by sobs and tears^could utter a word. Whatever has or can^be said about Bryson, the one fact is estab^lished that the love existing between son^and parent is a strong redeeming quality^in him. The father, broken down with^^orrow at seeing his son in the position he^is in, cannot be made to believe for an in^^stant that the boy brought up under his^own eye for eighteen years^a period long^enough to shape his mind and strengthen^bis opinions^could do such a deed as baa^been attributed to bim. Mr. Bryson cre^^ated quite a favorable Impression here. A^glance at bim shows the stock he came^from^the old Scotch stock, rigid in prm.-i^pie. Presbyterian i^ faith, honesty and in^tegrity imprinted on every ligament of his^features. Mr. David Bryson came from^Howick, where he has lived for the last^thirty years. H*^ and bis wife are still^living together with tbe seven children^born to them. George was the youngest of^the boys, and there are but two daughters^younger than him. From Mr. Bryson we^learn that Howick is a town of about eight^hundred or nine hundred inhabitants, and^within Its confines are two manufactories,^three hotels, six carpenter shops,^four blacksmith shops, three churches and^nine stores. Mr. Bryson keeps a temper^ance hotel in the town, and is also a li^^censed auctioneer. George lived with him^at home until his 18th year, when he left^borne to work in Montreal. All the time^when at borne George was known as a^good boy and dutiful son, very industrious^and one of the favorite boys of the village.^After he left borne be was a regular cor^^respondent with his parents, and until his^last visit to them In 1883, and up to that^time he was a regular visitor at regular in^^tervals to his family home. This be said^to his credit, that in all that time his father^never knew bim to touch one drop of^liquor at any time, and that when tempta^^tion was spread before him on every side.
Atthe trial last fall the elder Mr- Bryson^was laid up with a frozen foot, into which^erysipelas bad set, which detained bim^from appearing, but now t.e Intends to stay^here until he finds out the issue of the case.^The sympathy of the community is with^him in bis artliction.

NewYork, July 8 ^The Commercial^Advertiser says within the past decade^thereahas been no event in the American^world of let'ers which baa provoked such^wide comment and excited so large a^measure of curiosity as the publication in^the North American Review of a series^of letters to prominent persons un^^der the noiu de plume of ^Arthur Rich^^mond.^ The two distinctive character^^istics of the letters were the extieme bit^^terness of the personal and partisan fteling^which they betray, and the marked excel^lence and vigor of their literary form*^Shortly after the recent death ot Allan^Thorndyke Rice an attempt waa made to^establish the fact tbat he was not only re^sponsible for their publication, but bad^written the Arthur Richmond letters.^Rice's friends thought the real authors^should come forward, but as they have not^done so, the veil of mystery has been^lifted.
