Great Wheat Steal.
MJINNEAPOLI, Oct. 25.-Charles .A.
Pillsbury, speaking of the great wheat
steal, says: "It was only when we came
to weigh the wheat at the end of the year
that we found that there was not wheat
enough to pay what it owed by 49,000
bnshels. We have ascertained that 28,
000 bushels went out to Moak, in addi
tion to what our books show they had,
and this amount of wheat was run into
the cars after they had been weighed by
the state weigher. We have very nearly
checked up the whole matter, and we be
gin to think there was an actual shortage
of 20,000 bushels in the elevator anyway,
and that this amount was due to Hol
comb's carelessness and slack way of do
ing his business in connection with the
elevator. We do not see how it is possi
ble that that amount should have gone
out of the elevator without our getting
onto it by the system of checkling we
have been using. If there is any way
possible of punishing the thieves I would
like to have it done, and the elevator
company would pay a good bo
nus to any lawyer who would take up
the case and convict them, and would
furnish all the documents in. their power.
Collision after Collision.
PonT JERVls, N. Y., Oct. 25.-A fast
freight on the Erie ran into another

forward the east bound express dashed
into the wreck and cut of the leg of
Hawkins, who was. lying on-the-track In
sensible from the injuries he had re
ceived in the first collision. Two en
gines and a dozen freight cars were de
molished. No passengers were hurt.

NEW YORK, Oct. 25.-Gen. M. T. Mc

for $100,000 against ex-Secretary and

ing alienated her husband's affections.
She is a Catholic and consequently will
not sue for a divorce. Young James G.
will, it is understood, sail in a day or two
for Europe. He is not yet of age, and
this will have an important bearing on
ST. PAUL, Oct. 25.-A St. Paul evening
paper revives the story that the Northern
Pacific will absorb the Wisconsin Cen
tral, stating that it has positive informa
tion that the consolidation is set for an
early day. The general offices will be
consolidated and one set of officials man
age the whole system. Through trains

Fever Lower--Dem's Higher.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Oct. 25.-The rigid
quarantine heretofore existing in this
state has seriously interfered with the
political campaign in Florida, but now
that the fever is abating, more activity is
noticed, especially among the democrats,

canvass. The republicans, however, ex
cept in the Second district, which will be
very close, are making very little efort

NEWS FROM THE FRONT.
Cascade Band and Repres
W. L. Lease Miraculously
Healed by the Panacea
CASCADE, Oct. 25.
The republican representatives of
Great Falls, accompanied by the Great
Falls band, arrived here at 11 o'clock to
day and were met by such prominent re
publicans as J. Barnes, W. P. Burcher, W.
J. Lease, J. A. Harris and J. M. Erskine,
all of whom are full of enthusiasm and
working for the republican ticket and
protection to home industries.
W. J. Lease arose from a sick bed tq
take part in the good work. He is solid
for the ticket and denounces all reports
to the contrary as misrepresentations, to
wards which some democrats are in
clined. Cascade, St. Clair and Chestnut
will give a good republican majority.
The boys were well received and the
people lavished their generous hospital
ities upon them.
Mr. Barnes, an old time republican, ar
ranged the United States hotel for the
speaking, and at 7:80 p. m., after the
soul-stirring strains of the band, the
speaking began. Judge Race presented
the claims of the republican party in an
able and persuasive manner. Judge
Rolfe made an eloquent speech that was
received with much applause, in which
he gave a clear summary of the argu
ments for protection and extolled the
merits of the republican candidates,
speaking kindly, however, of those on
the opposite side.
C. C. Ray disposed of the tariff ques
tion most ably and gained many demo
cratic votes. He received great applause.
You need have no fears for Cascade and
Chestnut. The daily LEADER received
great praise here for its enterprise.
The Helena H-erald of the 28d inst., re
fering to our recent double-sheet issue
The Great Falls LEADER, which be,
comes a daily this week, achieved a
journalistic triumph last week, when it
came out with an eight page edition,
filled with news. The two local pages
were devoted to an elaborate description
of the great Carter meeting at Great
Falls, including the full text of Mr.
Carter's speech. It was a piece of com
mendable enterprise on the part of a new
paper, which its readers must appreciate.
The editor, Mr. J. W. McKnight, is an
experienced newspaper man and is mak
ing a success of the LEADER. Long may

The Helena Record, under the title
"They are With Us," says:
The first issue of the daily LEADER, of
Great Falls, reached our table yesterday.
It is, in typographical and literary merit,
deserving of all praise, and as another
worker in the cause of republicanism we
extend to it fraternal congratulations.
COL. SANDERS AT WICKS.
i1 He Tells What Kind of a Man Sam Word,
Clark's Apologist, is.
Probably no occasion in the history of
s. Wickes ever called forth such an over
l- whelming outburst of enthusiasm as the
republican demonstration there night be
fore last. Col. Wilbur F. Sanders and
1- Col. Geo. Eaton, two of the most distin
guished orators in the West, opened the
;o protection guns upon the enemy's works,
a, leveling their bastions and dispersing
it their terror-stricken bands. At the close
of one of the most effective political
speeches ever delivered in Montana, the
colonel for a moment turned his long
range gatlings upon the pusillanimous
e Sam Word-not because Word is worthy
o of notice,but solely because he is the lick
r- spittle of Clark, the chosen high priest at
is the altar of the democracy of Montana.
Of this rare specimen of human deprav
f ity he said:
