TENA M'DONALD PASSES AWAY FROM CONSUMPTi'ON Taken With Dread Malady Shortly After Her Seventeenth Birthday-A Favorite at High School. Tena McDonald, the only daughter of Alexander McDonald, died yesterday morning at 9 o'clock. While her death was not unexpected it came as a shock to many friends and to her relatives. She was a student at the high school until stricken with quick consumption about two months ago. There she was, because of her sweet disposition and her beautiful character, an universal favorite. When she died she was a little more than 17 years of age, having celebrated that birthday last Christmas. Ever since the malady made its appearance she has sunk steadily in spite of the best of care and attention. Last Friday when all hope of recovery was abandoned she asked to see her friends and to say good-bye to' them. When she passed away, she was conscious and she died with words of farewell on her lips. Her father, Alexander McDenald, her mother and two younger brothers, all of whom have lived In Butte a number of years, are left to mourn her losi. The funeral will take place tomorrow morning at so o'clock from the home at No. sos South Idaho street to St. Patrick's church where solmen high mass will be sung. Cel for eattaaoi Bock Beer.

BY ASSOCIATED PRESS. (-hicago, April 6.-A dispatch to the Rlcord-HIerald from Tabor, Iowa, says: The small cottage in which John Brown, the abolitionist, lived for several years in the 'Sos, and was used as the head quarters for his "underground railroad" for the helping of runaway slaves, has been destroyed by fire. In connection with his headquarters in Tabor, Brown organized a military school in which hls sympathizers were taught the manual of arms, the knowledge to be used in an uprising, which never occurred. The building was small and dilapidated. The Demi-Monde. "General, what is the meaning of demi monde ?" The veteran, never at a loss with his Latin, replies seriously: "The term comes front the classic-'demi,' half, and 'mondus' world; therefore, hall of the world. You understand, half the world besn't know how the other half lives. The ..,ni-monde is the half that does." been changed everywhere, -o that there can ie no such early reliable estimates of gains. and lossts on partial returns fromn precincts as heretofore. In a dozen of the largest cities the incumbent mayors are running for re-elcction, and with all local offices at stake the contests are much more animated than usual. At the same time a full state ticket and members of the legislature are to be elected at the election which follows next November, so that the successor of Sen ator Hanna is considered to be indirectly involved now. At the same time Ingalls at Cincinnati and Johnson at Cleveland are considered rival candidates for the democratic guher natorial nomination, as well as for elec tion as mayors of their respective cities, and the result may also affect aspirants for republican gubernatorial nominations as well as democratic aspirants for the senatorship. As a rule the usual party tickets are in the field. At Cincinnati, Julius Fleisch mann, the present incumbent, is the re publican candidate for mayor, and M. I. Ingalls, president of the Big Four rail roads, opposes him on the citizens' ticket, and is supported by the democratic or ganizations, together with republicans. Voting up to to o'clock exceeds that of any previous election. Fair. cool weath. FORMER WIFE SHOT DOWN BY CRAZED HUSBAND Despondent, He Sends a Bullet Through His Own Brain. 1Y ASSOCIATrD Paesn. Ayers, Mass., April 6.-Charles Moul ton of Clinton attempted to kill Miss Lillian Wheeler of this town at the rail road station today by shooting her twice in the head. He then sent a bullet through own brain, dying instantly. a Miss Wheeler was formerly Moulton's wife, but she had obtained a divorce from t him a few weeks ago and assumed her maiden name.

More than zoo warrants for the arrest of men charged with illegal registration have been issued, but no arrests have been made up to this hour. There is nothing in the early vote to show which way the elec tion will go. In Toledo Jones is running for re election, independent of all parties. There are three closely contested tickets at Ak ron, Washington Courthouse, Marietta, Ashtabula, Fremont, Greenfield and Ox ford. TRIAL IS TOMORROW Howard Must Answer for Alleged Complicity in Holdup. The trial of Howard, alias Kirby, the alleged train robber, will be called in Judge Clancy's department of the district court tomorrow. A specal venire of tao jurors has been issued for use in that depart ment, returnable to morrow. There are eight charges against the man who is accused of helping Cole try to rob the Burlington train near Homestake' last February. It was expected that How-' ard would weaken in the face of the nu merous charges and seek the clemency of the court by a plea of guilty, but he has stubbornly refused to do anything of the kind, and will probably make a deter. mined fight.
