]HELENA, MONTANA TERRITORY, WEDNESDAY MORNING. JULY 10 1889.
St. LOOM Block,
Itis ashless for any person,^who has been in our s ore for^the last month, to say ^Harris,^how's biz If they were not^blind they cou'd see ^biz was^good.^' Why was it good with^us when every clothing tirm in^Helena has been an active mem^^ber of the ^kickers club.
Why,simply because we^showed about as many styles^as all the other 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. sees j'i*t as^well made, just as good fitting^:ind much more stylish gar^^ments, and a-* a natural conse^^quence buys his 6uit and keeps^us busy.
Didyon ever hear about our^clearing sales '. We 1, we are^about to start one, pretty soon,^and you can safely gamble that^what little fur is left on tLe^hides of some of our moss tacks^will Hy when they see the^prices we quote. Among them^we will mention some of the^specialties.
Don'tyou call to mind that^pretty line of Irish tweeds, the^production of Hill ^ Son, of^Dublin ! We had them in two^colors^gray and brown They^were ab mt as universally ad^^mired as anything we have of^^fered this year, but many peo^^ple thought they were high;^but they were not. The trouble^was, they were not appreciated:^but it makes no difference. The^knife goes into them just the^same, and the consequence is.^from this day the |M is^aerate lied and $17 appears.
Butwe have plenty other^plums for those to eat who have^money to buy. The express^has brought m SOO suits, sum^^mer weights, that were pur^^chased at 6f^ cents on the dollar^and they go for the same per^^centage. Many of these hits^came in our first put chases and^were marked *'J^^,up to
$s. Now none of them are^marked over f-'K and although^it is a rank shame, we have ^let^some of them tint at $10. You^can borrow money at Ti per cent,^a month to pay for your next^summer's suit and s ill be^ahead on nearly any of these^lots.
You'venot heard of any sun^^strokes this year, have you^ Do^you know the reason i We can^tell 3 on. We have had no hot^weather; for the same reason^we have sold but few of our^summer specialties in coats and^vests.
Mow,if there is anything we^pride ourselves on. it is selection^of these goods. Just take a^look at our north winlow. You^will seethe prettiest assortment^you ever saw in your life. Mo^^hairs, crepes, pongee serges and^silks; the variety is great and^assortment astounding; prices^:JT^ ]^er cent, lower than they^would be if the season had been^propitious. We have seersuck^^ers at *1, coat and vest. We^have stripe and cro^s bar liss-^tres at PB, 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 profusion ever offered^to a Montana public.
Infact, all oar lines are re^^markably low in furnishing^goods. In Hats, in Shoes, all^as cheap as c onsistent with good^grades and best workmanship.
Acleaver has been at the dis^posal of over 3^^0 doz^n hand^^kerchiefs at 12 1 2 cents each^^pretty things they were, too,^and neatly all gone.

NewOrleans, July *.^It was said to^day by those close to Kilrain that the Haiti^more man protested against his seconds^throwing up the sponge when they did at^yesterday's fight, but notwithstanding bis^protestations he was bundled up in a black^shawl and hurried to a carriage in waiting.^Kilrain, Donovan. Butler. Murpby and^Mite bell drove rapidly to the train and en-^tered~thefr car. When Kilrain bad seated^himself be was soon surrounded by a bost^of sympathizing friends, who condoled^with bim over bis misfortune.^Kilrain wept like a child and^exclaimed. ^ I had him beaten.
Mr.Stevenson, who bad been Kilrain's^friend throughout, remained by his side^and sponged him, occasionally giving him^a drink of whisky and water. Kilrain^would not be consoled, but continued to be^^moan the loss of the battle, which be bad^hoped to win. Prof. Micbael J. Donovan,^of the New York athletic club, who so^ably seconded Kilrain, Prof. Dennis But^^ler, of tbe Southern athletic club, and^Johnnie Murpby, the bottle holder, re^mained beside their principal,one relieving^the other in ministering to bis comfort^and relief. None felt the defeat of Kil^^rain more than these people, and Prof.^Donovan stated that though Kilrain did^not want to throw up the sponge, he con^^cluded to do so, for bis principal was ex^^hausted from the heat and exercise as well^as from the punishment he had received,^!^nt had so nobly stood. Mitchell held^himself aloof. Kilrain appeared to be suf^^fering more from mental than physical in^^juries, and was very gloomy. At times he^would brighten up a little and smile,^but these occasions were rare. His^face did not betray the great^punishment be had received at the hands^of his big antagonist. Ue bad a cut under^the nose, across both lips, and his left eve^was slightly discolored and swollen. IIis^right hand had been injured by a blow on^Sullivan's bead and bis left instep had been^cut by the spikes on Sullivan's shoes,^which cut through tbe leather of Kilrain's^left shoe. lie bad received terrible pun^^ishment about the ribs and doubtless suf^fered considerable pain, but he gave no^voice to his agony. lie claimed to have^been more overcome by heat, than by t h a^blows of Sullivan. Keferring to the tight.^Kilrain said that he had not been trained^properly, and that be was not^in condition when be entered the ring.^This seemed to be tbe impression of every^one who saw him. He would work and^get some money together again, be .-aid,^and would once more make a trial for tbe^championship. He bad Sullivan ^done^^twice, be continued, but he had not been^properly trained and was unable to take^advantage of this, but he was willing to^fight Sullivan again. Ue punched Sullivan^several times and did not seem to bit bim,^and he labored under the impression that^something must have been done to him^in^other words that be had been drugged. Ue^did not have the strengtli of a cat, and oouid^not stand any amoi nt of punishment, and^could not intiic' any. Ue could see that^his blows were not nutting Sullivan and^he complained of tbe manner in which^Sullivan had deliberately jumped on him^with both feet while be was down. But he^should find no fault with this, but be bad^trusted too much to his trlends. One of^those around him exclaimed reproachfully,^^Some of your friends, you should say.^^^Sullivan was done for twice.^ he skid,^^but he was also, and could not take ad^^vantage of his adversary's condition.
Whenthe train was crossing a trestle^about eighteen milts from this city,^Mitchell, for tbe first time, entered tbe car^and Kilrain awoke. While tbe train was^at a standstill Kilrain reproached Mitchell^for the condition he was in when he en^^tered the ring. Mitchell replied and ^iuite^a crowd gathered around the two men.^Mitchell attributed Kilrain's defeat to ^its^being one of bis off days.^ A number of^sporting men who knew Kilrain well and^had seen him in training at Baltimore re^marked that something must have been^tbe matter with him. for they bad never^seen bim look so feeble.
Theear ier rounds of a prize fight sre not^as revolting as ordinarily supposed. Dur^^ing the entire progress of the seventy-five^rounds, yesterday, neither of the com^^batants showed outward signs of severe^physical punishment. There was not the^abundant flow of blood from tbe nose or^mouth which embellishes the accounts of^scraps between third rate fighters. Sulli^^van had his ear split, both his eyes banged,^his neck scratched and his hands disabled,^but evinced no outward symptoms of suf^^fering. Kilrain's lip was cut, bis left ear^smashed and his short ribs severely^pounded, but he bled to a very inconsidera^^ble extent, and only a big bruise the size of^a man's hand showed where Sulli^^van's terrific nght band repeatedly^jabbed him. Later in the fight when Kil^rain began to grow weak in tbe legs and^totter about, tbe helpless victim of Sulli^^van's superior but greatly diminished mus^^cular force, then the spectacle became not^only revolting but pitiaole. Sullivan seems^to have profited some by past experience^and be has evidently abandoned his rush^^ing tactics. Ue did r.ot rush to any notica^ble extent, but when he did his agile and^wiry antagonist, before he began to^weaken, invariably landed on his jaw or^cheek or some equally available locality.^Sullivan was c. nstantly on the aggressive,^bnt there was an absence of that furious^impetuosity for whfcb he haa become^noted. Ue bad learned to respect Kilrain's^arm by repute, and his knowledge on tbat^point was greatly enriched by actual expe^rienee.
Onething is evident^Sullivan is no^match for Kilrain, either as a wrestler or^boxer. Qmsj Kilrain Sullivan's immeasure-^able driving power and expanse of chest,^and shoulders and no man could stand^against him. Kilrain's pluck and game-^ness was the admiration of those who un-^stand ring strategy and true endurance.^The Baltimore man was practically^whipped in tbe third round. Sullivan got^in a fierce blow on his side, under the^heart, from which he never recovered. An^ordinary man would have thrown up the^sponge in the next round. Kilrain s sec^^onds themselves say the fight was over then,^A half-whipped man. jeered and hooted by^the crowd. Kilrain continued to come up^smiling every time, although tbe certainty^of more fearful punishment to come stared^bim in tbe face. Even after tbe final round^Kilrain was ready to come to the scratch,^but his seconds feared direful results. They^buoyed him up throughout the fight by pic^turing to bim tbe effect of defeat upon his^wife and children, it was not deemed^strange, then, tbat when Kiirain was seated^in bis car on tbe homeward journey, sore^and bleeding and brooding over bis defeat,^the big tears rolled down his cheek and^melted the hearts even of the rough men^who accompanied him.
Justafter tbe fight Sullivan said to Bar-^nett and some of his friends tbat be waa^sorry for Kilrain. and while of course be^was very much pleased with his victory,^he hoped that Kilrain had not been ser^^iously hurt and that be would soon be^around again. He said among other things^that be would never enter the ring again^under any conditions. He bad done bis^share of slugging during bis rather^brief career in the fistic arena,^and he wanted no more of^it- He certainly did not in^^to fight the California negro, for the^pie reason tbat he considered it entire^^ly too degrading for a white man to place^himself on an equality with a negro. Hia^~~ to Kilrain and his fighting qual-^were of tbe moat pleasant char-^concluding with the remark that he^bad got a more effective thump-^g in his contest with Kilrain than ever^in his lite before. Owing to the dislocation^of tbe knuckle on tbe first finger of tbe left^band, which occurred in the seventh^round, he was compelled to make the re^^mainder of the fight almost single handed.
Wm.Muldoon. the wrestler who trained^Sullivan for the fight, had this to say to an^Associated Press reporter today when^asked his opinion of tbe fight: ^My im-^- is that it was the greatest fight^^as* place between heavy^The fighting was fast and fur^^ious all through, and 1 don't think the^man was ever horn who could have^whipped Sullivan yesterday. He did not
knowat tbe end of the fight that he bad^fought over half an hour. He was as^Strops' as when the fight commenced, and^could have fought two hours longer, it^necessary. He refrained from fast and^needless fighting by my advice, as I did^not want him to meet with any accidents.^1 consider Kilrain tbe greatest^heavy weight fighter living out^^side of Sullivan. Ue is a game and^determined fellow. I think if he had^fought according to his own judgment, in^^stead of taking the cowardly and tricky ad^^vice of the men who were behind him, he^would not have been hissed by the people^present, and the American public would^nave more to admire in him to day than at^any time since he came into prominence.^1 don't think he was In condition for a^bard fight in this hot climate. He was^trained too fine, and soon became very^weak. 1 allowed my man seven pounds to^lose in tbe fight, and after the battle was^over he was just six and one-^fourth pounds lighter than when be en^^tered the ring. He was not a bit^tired, was cheerful and In no way Injured.^My advice to bim is to live the balance of^his life slow and easy, and never again^enter tbe ring as a principal. He is now^restored to perfect health and may yet live^long and enjoy good health, if he will only^take care of himself. If be fails to do that,^he has no one to blame for it but himself.^1 have always been anxious to^prove to the public that he^is a natural born tighter, and^could tight a long and scientific battle, if^necessary, provided he was properly^handled and put in condition. Now that 1^have done that, I am through forever with^all ring fights. 1 never again want to see a^man knocked about and punished as Kil^^rain was yesterday. 1 think boxing a good^exercise, and w ill do all that 1 can to en^^courage it. but 1 think ring fighting is too^brutal and 1 want to see no more of it.
Kilrain,who was believed to have re^ceived such terrible punishment about the^body, appeared this morning to be as fresh^as a daisy. After his return from tbe bat^tlefield be was conveyed to the Southern^Athletic club rooms and given a bath, after^which be retired to his rooms. Ue vomited^a grteniah substance, some of which has^been kept for analysis, in order to deter^^mine whether he had been dosed, as be^intimated, or not. The rumors that Kil-^in had been suffering from disease had^been freely circulated, and In order to sat^^isfy himself whether this was true or not,^tbe janitor watched Kilrain, He was evi^^dently suffering great physical pain, and^appeared to walk with difficulty. The^janitor was finally convinced tbat not only^were the reports true, but tbat Kilrain bad^recently bad a surgical operation per^^formed. Dr. Dougherty, of Philadelphia,^had been attending to him, and Kilrain^bad been taking medicine ever since bis ar^^rival here. In fact, on tbe day of bis arri^^val he waa seen taking medicine from a^vial, but this at tbe time was believed to be^some preparation which was intended to^assist him in getting into condition for tbe^tight. Dr. Dougherty stated to some of the^members of tbe club tbat he had been^treating Kilrain for a boil, from which he^had been suffering for some time. These^facts became known in the club to-day,^and tbe consequence was a reversion of^opinion in regsrd to Kilrain, and some of^the members remarked when he had gone^that they wished they had never invted^him. Prof. Donovan stated he did not^know anything of this prior to tbe fight:^^therwise he would have bad nothing to do^with it, or would not hare allowed Jake^Kilrain to enter the ring.
Sincethe fact has become known, Kil^^rain's sluggish movements while walking,^his disinclination to -trip and his aversion^to take exercise, as well as Mitchell's care^tbat be should not take any, and Kilrain's^troubled looks, his rather cadaverous face,^fact, his strange actions, words and^looks are all attributed to this.
Prot.Robinson, in charge of the pupils^of the Southern Athletic club, who wit^^nessed tbe fight, stated openly on the train^while returning that the fight was a colos^^sal fake from beginning to end, ai d that^Sullivan and Kilrain were parties to it.^This explained Sullivan's magnanimity^towards Kilrain. He bad him at bis mercy^several times during the fight when he^could very easily have knocked bim out.^Kobinson professes to know all about spar^^ring, and has seen a number of prize^fights, and is competent to judge. Uis as^^sertions were made openly -j members of^the club and ktO^e evoked Ao little com^^ment. Some allege that he is mistaken,^for too many heavy blows were bit, and^the principals received too much punish^^ment. Kilrain arose this morning and de^^sired to take a bath in tbe swimming tank^but was not permitted to do so. At an^early hour tbe guests of tbe club gathered^together tbeir wardrobe and commenced^packing up, and at 7:15 o'clock Kilrain.^Mitchell, Murpby, Pony Moore and Dr.^Dougherty left in carriages for the Texas^A Pacific depot.
Sullivansays he will not accept Kox's^belt, either for his bulldog or himself, feel^^ing it is not necessary to establish the^fact tbat he is the champion pugilist.
JohnL. Sullivan, Wm. Muldoon and^Mike Cleary are still in tbe citv and sre at^their old quarters. Aoout i^:30 Sullivan^was presented with a large wreath of^flowers representing a horse shoe. Sulli^^van acknowledged tbe gift in very brief^speech. Sullivan returned to his room^at about ^:*6 o'clock. Ue was then^somewhat under the influence of liquor^and four policemen stood at the corner in^case he committed any overt act. Chief of^Police Hennesy and John Filzpatrick. who^was tbe referee in the fight, visited him.^Fitzpatrick remained but a few moments.^It is said Sullivan and Cleary will l^ave^tbe city to-morrow morning for New York.

D. John^^son in the corral. Tbey thong tit it rather^strange, and at ft o'clock Monday morning,^hen Mr. Cochrane saw the cattle still^penned up, he determined to investigate.^Approaching the door he knocked twice,^but received no answer. He pounded a^third time, and in response came tbe voice^of a child, crying ^Ub, mamma.^ Running^arou d to the window be called the name^of Mrs. Johnson, but received no reply^but the piteous crying of the child. He^forced open the door and entered.^Ascending the stairs a horrible sight met^his eyes. Lying at the head of^the stairs was the body of Johnson. The^hair was matted with blood, which oozed^from a bullet wouna in his forehead. A^revolver was lying partly under tbe body.^On a bed close by lay the body of the boy,^Willie, ^is face blackened with powder^and covered with blood from two ghastly^wounds in the head. On a pallet at the^toot of the bed waa the little girl, her face^daubed with blood from a bullet wound.
Overcomeby the terrible spectacle,^Cochrane rushed down stairs and ont of the^house to summon help. A messenger waa^dispatched to Palouse City to summon the^proper authorities, and the neighbors soon^reached the scene of the tragedy. On tbe^front door was pinned tbe following note:^'Come in^open; we are up stairs, all dead.^^The neighbors entered and ascended the^stairs in search of Mrs. Johnson. They^found her dead body in the bedroom ad^^joining the one in which tbe others^were lying. It was found tbat a^bullet had entered the right aide of the^orebead of tbe little girl and passed out^the right eye. When asked wbo hurt ber^she said her brother stuck a stick into her^eye. she also stated that ber father gave^them all lemonade and that her mother^screamed. The little one was tenderly^cared for and Drs. Magee and Williams^did all in tbeir power to relieve her suffer^^ings. Scattered about the bouse were^found the following notes, written In a^cramped hand and abounding In poor^spelling:

Fromtbe ab ive notes it appears Johnson^had become insane on religion and deliber^^ately decided to kill hia family; that on^Saturday evening he gave them stryeb-^r.ine^but when it threw them Into spasms^be shot them. His wife appears to hare^died from the effects of the poison, though^there were some indications of strangula^^tion.
Tbemaniac must have done his work cool-^1} . for in the midst of it be could notice the^time of night and sit down and write a let^^ter. When his diabolical work was com^^pleted, and, as be supposed, hia wife and^children had perished at his hands, be^again wrote that he was about to end hia^own life. Johnson haa lived in thia section^for ten or twelve years, and was one of the^wealthiest farmers in tbe Palouse country.^His neighbors hare always regarded him^aa being eccentric. Of late he had been^greatly excited about religion. On Satur^^day he was in town and bought a new^mowing machine of Jolaon. At that time^he seemed perfectly rational.
Theprosecuting attorney aud sher^^iff, after viewing tbe remains and^considering the circumstances, decided^that it was not necessary to hold an in^^quest There is but little bope of the girl's
recovery,and if she does she will be blind.
Mrs.Johnson Is the sister of Perry McCon^^nell, and is spoken of in the highest terms
byall wbo knew ber. The boy Willie was^a bright lad of 14 and a great favorite with^his playmates. Tbe little girl, Annie, ia
only7 years old. The tragedy is one of^tbe most horrible on record and has great^^ly shocked tbe entire community.
