OUR DRY WEATHER.
WhyIt U ^o and How It Compare. With^other Yenra.
Thedry condition of Montana is a mat^^ter of much concern to the people just now.^Never before has there been such a defi^^ciency in the precipitation. An Indepen^^dent reporter visited the weather clerk's^office yesterday and secured some figures^^n tbe rainfall during the last five years^from .January to Jute, So far this year^tbe Helena office of the signal service re^^ports only * i inches of rainfall, whereas^it should be nine inches, the usual fall up^to that time. For the month of June. 1 v...^it baa been only 3^ of an inch, whereas last^year it was 1.87 inches. Kor the past fif^^teen years, or ever since the office was^established in Helena, the precipitation^has averaged nine inches, but unless a big^change occurs it will never reach that^mark this year, and if it does it will come^too late to save tbe crops and grazing lands,^which, according to current reports, are^burning up.

Therecord of rainfall during the month^of June since ln*5 is as follows, given in^inches: In 1HH6. 4 4o; lhho. 1.14; IkxT, 3 48:^1H8B. 1 h7: 188^, 0 88.

Thecause of the great deficiency of the^present year, which is a falling off of^3.15 inches as compared with last year, is^hardly accountable. The weather clerk^says the little rainfall that Montana has^had came from tbe Pacific coast, but having^to cross the high Kockies, most of it re^^mained on the west side, and the high^winds preceding the rainfall have driven^it off. During former years the reverse^has been ^ he rule: tbe rains have come from^the southeast and southwest and have met^no barriers in th^ir onward course. The^rainfall of the country, however, for 100^years, will average the same every year,^and while the northwest is neglected the^east is being flooded with rain. Reports
processionare requested to meet at their ! from the eastern and middle states are to^respective halls or places of rendt zvous at j the effect that there is an excess of rain.^8:80 a. m. and report to the assistant mar- !

Theweek just ended has been one of^much interest to Montanians, made so by^the success of peerless Spokane, the pride^of the Bunch Grass state. Spokane will^go down in history as a Derby winner, as^no other animal has ever captured the^three big races, the Kentucky Derby,^Clarke Stakes and American Derby, as^Spokane has done. He has a mortgage on^the Twin City Derby, bis only likely com^^petitors in this event being Hindoocraft,^.Sportsman. Le Premier, Once Again and^Galen. With the exception of the latter^.spokane has met and conquered all of^them, and recent reports say that Galen is^broken down.
Theentries for the Helena Derby have^made the second payment, and Spokane^will not be in it. Much conjecture is now^made between local horsemen as to wbo^will win and it seems to be the^general impression that By bee's Broad^church is the beat horse in the list. At all^events, be will start out a strong favorite.
BabbA, Mulkey's stible, which arrived^but last week, are nearly all sick: at least^the best ones In the string are not fit to^work. This stable includes Bogus, Rosa^Lewis, Duffy Winters, Quebec, Moses D.^and Guido. Tbe horses suffered from the^beat of the trip, and Mr. Mulkey feels a^little alarmed.

Washington,June 28.^Dispatches to^several papers dated June 2 quoted the^president as having spoken as follows in a^recent conversation with a southern dele^^gation: ^Perhaps 1 comprehend this race^question quicker and better than any of^you gentlemen think, and sympathize with^your feelings in regard to the colored peo^^ple more than you know. Certainly in^your place 1 would feel as you do. Per^saual contact with an alien race would not^be agreeable to me. 1 would not like to^see a negro mayor or postmaster in In^diaua, nor one representing tbe power and^authority of the I'nited States In a fiscal or^administrative capacity at my own home.^It would not be aureeable to me to practice^my profession before a colored federal^mdge or meet a negro at the federal bar as^United Stales attorney. 1 do not intend to^impose upon the people of tbe seutb con^^ditions which I would think rather bard if^imposed upon me.
Ex-senatorBruce and Auditor Lynch^called at the Associated Press office aud^requested as wide a circulation as possible^be given to the following statement made^by them in relation to the above. They feel^fully authorized to say the report of the^conversation Is erroneous. They had oc^^casion to call on the president several times,^and on each occasion he freely expressed^himself on matters pertaining to the colored^race, and they do not hesitate to say his^views upon that subject were fair and just^and will commend him to the approbation^of the colored people throughout the coun^^try. Tbe last time they called on him was^W ednesday. when they presented the ad^^dress recently adopted by the conference of^colored men held at Jackson, Miss., June^13 That address among ot^ er things de^^clares ^That Mr. Harrison is oresident not^of one section, but of the whole countr^ .^not of one race, but of all races of which^our citizenship is composed. His ambition^Is to destroy rather than promote^race prejudice and sectional animosity.^^The president assured the delegation his^own position upon that subject could not^have been more accurately or correctly^stated. Coloted men, he declared, should^not ask to be appointed to office simply on^account of their color nor should their color^be tbe ground tor objection.
Inview of all these facts it is the opinion^of Lynch and Bruce that if the colored peo^^ple will only be patient ^ud eontide in tbe^piesident they will not be disappointed in^*heir just and reasonable expectations, lie^sides the appointments already made by^the president ought, tbey believe, to satisfy^every body that be entertains no such senti^^ments as he is alleged to have smmji Ml 4 ^^the above dispatch. Tbey assert positively^be entertains no such sentiments.

OfStephen F. Melitor, whose death was^announced a day or two since in the Impe-^i km'kn r. the Dead wood Pioneer has the^following to say: Stephen F. Molitor was^born in Hungary, February 22, 183L At^the age of 18. when Hungary revolted^against tbe rule of Austria, young Molitor^joined the revolutionists, fought bravely in^many engagements for the land of his^birth, and bad bis galantry rewarded b^^rapid promotion, receiving the epaulettes^of a first lieutenant before be was It. Toe^revolution having ended unsuccessfully^Molitor, whose love for liberty would not^permit his living in obedience to the laws^of' such an empire as Austria, sought^the freer atmosphere of the L'nit-d^states. Reaching San Francisco in^:s53. he studied assaying and^metallurgy, becoming sineularly ac^compltshed in both. In 1866 himself and^wife (he had married in San Franciscoi^removed to Salt Lake, where, however, he^remained only one year, removing to Hel^^ena, Montana, in 18A7, where he again^opened an assay office. At Helena be^earned an enviable reputation, and was one^of tbe few in his profession resident there^at tbe time of whom it could have been,^and was truthfully said, he could not be^bribed to give a false aasay return of ore,^in order to either boom or blackmail a^mine. From Helena Mr. Molitor came to^I lead wood, reaching here in 1879^still pursuing the practice of bis pro^^fession he speedily reached the top rung of^the ladder: bis assays being .final without^further question. About two years and a^half ago his wife died. Mr. Molitor, or^I'ncle Stephen, as he was affectionately^called by many, never recovered from the^blow. His health by no means good before,^broke up completely. A complication of^ailments attacked him, culminating In his^utter prostration two months ago. Three^weeks since be rallied somewhat and went^to Hot Springs, hoping against hope. It^was no use. Death had marked him.
Generousto a fault, kind and affable In^manner, of rare and unvarying good hu^^mor, possessed of a large fund of an^ cdote,^an excellent mimic and withal a gentle^^man of the old school, tbe death of Stephen^F. Molitor will cause a pang of genuine re-
fretto hosts of friends throughout tbe^lills, in Montana and San Francisco. He^leaves no relatives living except bis^brother Titu^. who has for years been as^^sociated with him in business.
