of this town, which is in itself a cogent
argument that Great Falls will soon reach

to accelerate Great Falls advancement as
a metropolis, every honorable effort
should be used.
Without designing to cast aspersion
upon the non-side-walk element in this
town, if there is such an element exist
ing here, it might be said that it is well
to remember the soil in Great Falls is not
impervious to water; but, on the contrary,
water will so assimilate with the soil as
to be fit only for the streets of Athens,
for it is universally known that that city
is in Greece.

Mr. Dean, one of the proprietors of the

at the hotel yesterday by a representative
of the LEADER as follows: "Mr. Dean,
are there any new developments at the
mines?" "Well, yes; there was a party
from Stillwater here recently, and he
was representing a company at that place.
He came here for the purpose of look
ing at some mines that belong to private
individuals. The mines contain alout
500 acres, and are located at Sand Coulee,
adjoining the ground of the company

President Hill of the Manitoba rail
road, associated with other capitalists, ex
pects to establish at Great Falls an imn
mense plant for the manufacture of iron
and steel rails. The country contiguous
to Great Falls during the past two years
has developed the fact that it is one of
the richest sections of the whole country
as regards iron ore deposits. Investiga
tions show there are immense bodies of
hermatite, spathic and magnetic ores,
a large portion of which is especially a
adapted for the manufacture of bessemer i
steel. In connection with the iron ores,
Great Falls has an unlimited supply of
coal and limestone the essentials neces
sary for the working of the ores. Prob
ably in no other place in the United I
States, with the exception of Birminlg
ham, Alabama, are all of the essentials
for the mannfacture of steel, found in a
group. It is expected that this immense
plant will give employment to from one a
thousand to fifteen hundred men.
President Hill, npon one of his period
ical visits to the Falls, accompanied by
President Hughitt of tile Northwestern
came in via the Manitoba Monday morn
ing the 11th inst. These gentlemen to
gether with a number of the prominent
directors of the Northwestern railway
were making a tour of inspection of the
country, remaining at the Falls one day.
They examined the water-power, coal
fields and other resources, and were much
surprised and pleased with what they
saw here, particularly the fertility of the
country and its beauty. They prophesy
for this part of Montana a very rapid
growth in population and wealth. The
party left Tuesday morning for Helena,
Butte and points west.
The democratic rally the other evening
appeared to have rallied more republicans
than democrats. It was frequently re
marked that there were two republicans
out of three person present. The band
music was first class; "Marching through
Georgia" elicited great applause from the
republicans. The speaking will probably
never be the means of sending any one
to congress. We were somewhat sur
prised to see a native of that country
whose people are crushed and downtrod
den by British tyranny, talking in favor
of the free trade policy which the crafty
English, through Cleveland, are trying to
force upon this country. George Taylor
made a very fair speech; Major Baldwin
forgot to mention the telephone scandal.
The orator of the evening was Judge
Murphy, of Cascade. On the whole it
was rather tame, the redeeming features
being the fireworks and music.

'The Sun River Affair.
When asked by a representative of this
this paper for information regarding the
occurrence at Sun River, Sheriff Down
ing said: "Hurley, my deputy, was on
guard, and was to wake me at 10 o'clock.
Everything was quiet in the town and he
concluded to let me sleep a little longer.
About 12 o'clock two men came up to
him very suddenly and presented two
pistols in his face and said: "Mr. Sheriff,
we want that prisoner." He replied:
"You have the best of me; I can't help
myself." At that time twenty-five or
thirty men came out from behind a build
ing and demanded the keys from him.
He didn't have them; so they commenced
to force the door with a crow-bar, and in
a few minutes they had forced it open.
They then bound the prisoner's hands
and feet, put a rope around his neck and
eight men dragged him through the mud
to the place where he was strung up.
Two of the men held Deputy Hurley for
probably twenty minutes; then they
turned him loose and told him to walk
around to the other side of the jail and the
men disappeared. There was no demon
stration, no excitement; everything was
quiet, and the hanging of the darkey was
effective. Judge Bach, Sol Yates and
Burns arrived there by daylight to assist
me, and there they saw the darkey hang
SThe thirty men were all masked. As
horrible as the cold and heartless murder
may have been, the act of those thirty
men did not vindicate the law; the law
was violated. However, if the partici
pants in the hanging of that helpless
murderer desire to see the laws enforced
they should enforce those laws which are
conducive to a healthy state of society.
They should evacuate those hot-house
hatcheries of crime, and lend their influ
ence towards the establishment of a moural
The Wards presented to a large and
appreciative audience in the Collins'
building Thursday evening the famous
drama "Inshavogue." The stage being a
temporary structure, with limited scenic
effects, the play could only he made real

Ward, as Brian MaGuire ("Inshavogue")
at times did well-hlie can act well at all
times no doubt, if he so desires. Carrie
Clark Ward, as Biddy Malone, lost her
individuality wholly; she was versatile,
and her acting "is as natural as the
heavens are blue." Miss Mifflin. im
personating Kate O'Dwyer, did well
throughout the entire play. Miss Jennie
Lamont, as Lady O'Dwyer, went
thsough her emotional parts in a credi
table manner. [lick Burke, the stalge
villain was fairly impersonated by 0, HI.

ment was poor, but the play for the most
part was good, and in some parts excel
lent. The company appears in a differ

Monday morning the Judge was not
present in his seat as customary at the
usual hour, and some good-humored re
marks were made by those present about
fining him for non-attendance. At ten
o'clock, however, Judge Bach, came into
court with the sheriff and deputies, all
looking red-eyed and worn from their
having been up all night at Sun River in
their efforts to prevent the lynching of

charged the grand jury specially upon
the subject of lynching, taking strong
ground against the lynchers. But little

The case of the Territory of Montana
vs. Merrit S. Havens for murder of his
wife occupied the attention of the court
the first part of the week. Considerable
time was consumed in obtaining a jury.
Most of the jurymen present had already

Geo. W. Taylor, county attorney, as
sisted by J. P. Lewis, represented the
prosecution. Messrs. Donnelly and Stan

The evidence was to the effect that
Havens and his wife had had several
quarrels, that when seen by the coroner
and others the body was lying on a bed
in a tentSxl0. There were marksof chok
ing on the neck and bullet holes in her
head which could not have been caused
by the deceased.
The theory of the defense was that of
The case was not closed until Wednesday
evening. Mr. Lewis made the opening
argument for the territory and was fol

for the defense, the closing argument
being made by County Attorney 'Taylor.
On Thursday morning the jury brought

At the Democratic rally the other even
ing it was thought it would be aflne thing
to get Mr. Hill, who is no slouch of a
speaker, to give the democrats a speech.
Our friend, O'Dwyer, was deputized to
interview Mr. Hill and get him ready for
the crowd. Full of his usual zeal, with
his tall white hat on and his coat tails
streaming in the wind, Mr. O'D. rushed
down to the special train. "O yes," said
Mr. Hill affably, "we will give the boys
something to think of." So O'I)wyer
rushed back and proudly marched at the
head of the column, wiping his forehead
furiously with his bandana. Meanwhile
Mr. Hill whispered a few words to the
engineer, and just as the crowd bore in
sight, puff, went the locomotive, and a
moment later O'Dwyer was longinglyand
sadly gazing at the retreating cars as they
went around the bend.
"Of all sad words of tongue anti pen,
"The saddest are it might have been."
The Agricultural Editors.
The gathering of the agricultural
editors at Great Falls was an event cal
culated to be of great moment to our
infant city. The editors represented all
parts of the country, from the classic
streets of Boston to St. Paul and Minne
apolis, and their papers are read by
hundreds of readers in every state in the
union. The visitors were enthusiastic
over the resources of northern Montana,
and of Great Falls. They spoke in glowing
terms of the agricultural resources of
this section, of the flourishing fields of
wheat and grain, of the inexhaustible sup
ply of coal, the beautiful scenery and
wonderful water supply, and were in
earnest in what they saul. They are men
of the keenest intelligence and such ones
as Great Falls hopes to see again.

When the train bearing the Washington

the travelers upon the political outlook.
As each one replied he was given a yel
low ticket on which was printed in bib
letters the word "'Pumped" and in small
type the injunction "Stick this in the
band of your hat and you will not be
troubled again by a reporter." The
newspaper men made a lot of fun over
the affair, but gracefully submitted to
the interviewing process.
A False Advertiser on Trial.
NEvw YORK, June 14.--John S. l)unn
has been placed on trial for grand larceny
in court. It. T. Scott, the teller of the
Manhattan Bank, went to England in
1885, having embezzled about $150,000.
ISubsequently Ihe made a sworn statement
that he had entrusted the greater part of
the stolen money with hisbrother-in-law,
Dunn, who is a lawyer by profession.
Dunn has been in prison in Ludlow street
jail for the lst 10 month-. In opening
the case for the people it was contended
that Dunn did not advise Cashier Scott
as a lawyer but as a friend, that the prop
er mode of procedure when he found he
could not make good his shortage was
to steal enough to cripple the bank and
foice a settlement with the Manhattan
bank directors. If the testimony bears
out tihe assertions of the district attorney
it will show that when Scott faltered the
lawyer egged him on to rob to the extent
of an even million dollars.
