Sud denly he heard the roadagent's usual form ula, "Hold up your hands," given in a sharp command. Keys on straightening up found himself looking into the muzzle of a revolver, hel( by a large, stout man, whose head and shoulders were covered by a cloth mask. The clothing worn by the robber was concealed by a long blouse. A smaller man stood by him disguised in the same manner. Keys' hands went up as soon as he comprehended the situation. When questioned as to what he had, he re-r p4ed "not much," The smaller man went turough his pockets and found $24.70. The men then asked where the key was to the door leading5into the other portions of the building. Joe informed them that it was in the office. They then asked for the key to the back door of the business office, but Joe told them that he supposed that was also in the office. They replied that the Missoula Mercantile company must have everyttLing in its office, and proceeded to back up the stairs loading into the alley. As they were going out the smaller man threw down a dollar and remarked, "That will buy your briakfast." Keys immediate ly gave the alarm, but the men were out of sight before assistance could be obtained.

LIrvoGBToN, Feb. 6.--[Secial.]-Richard Hall attempted suicide in this city last night by shooting himself three times with a twenty-two cnlible revolver. Hall was up town until 10:30 and on going home found a number of guests assembled at the residence, and not being particularly stuck on the company made a kick on their being there. Theie was some talk of ejecting Hall from the premises, but before they could carry their threat into effect he en tered a room and came out with a gun. Everyone present made a rush for the door, followed by Hall. When he reached the outside no one was in sight, and after firing one shot into the ground he placed the muzzle of the revolver against his fore head and fired three bullets. By the time the last shot was fired Deputy Sheriff Mitchell arrived and Hall was taken to the New York house, where the bullets were re moved by Dr. Alton. Owing to the small. ness of the revolver the bullets did not enter his head, but flattened out against his skull. PRISONERS SENTENCED. Judge Benton Sends up Several Criminals for Various Terms.

During the St. Lager race week the prince stayed at Arthur Wilson's house at Doncastor. During his stay the prince seems to have played at baccarat with a wealthy baronet and others. On a certain evening the baronet referred to was accused of cheating. He flatly denied the charge. The prince of Wales, dreading unpleasant notoriety and the disagreeable comments of the radical press, interposed and a settle. ment was made. One of the stipulations was that the accused baronet sbhould give's written agreement undertaking not to play cards for money in the future. On the other hand the baronet's accusers agreed not to mention the unfortunate dispute. But it seems the accused baronet found that the charges were soon publicly dis cussed and commented upon in aristocratic London clubs., He has served the members of the committee who watched his actions while playing with writs in actions for libel and has retained MG 111. The committee has retained Sir Chatles Itusell.

WAemasorow, Feb. 6.-[FSpecial.]-Presi. dent Harrison received to-day a letter from James B. Walker, of Helena, Mont., with drawing from the postmastership race. His letter is a lengthy one, reciting reasons why he should withdraw, winding up saying that he does this in the Interest of the re publican party. He has recommended a name for the lace, but the president de clines to give it out before he sends it to the senate. REPUBLICANS KILL IT. Free Coinage Practically Dead for This Session-Who Did It? WASHInoTox, Feb. 6.-The action of the house to-day in sustaining the decision of the chair (Payson) by which Bland's free coinage amendment to the sundry civil bill was ruled out of order, is thought by many to mean that no free coinage bill can pass this congress. There were probably some republicans who voted to sustain the de cision of the chair (who himself is a silver man) because they believed the decision was in accordance with the rules. A di rect vote on a free coinage bill might result differently, but it is not clear how a direct vote on such a bill can be had during this congress. A majority of the coinage com mittee had decided that they need more information, to be acquired through hearings, before they can vote intelligently on reporting any silver bill, and the vote to-day will probably strengthen them in their position. The silver men have given up all hope of getting any sort of a report from the committee. To-day Bland and Bartine left the committee, refusing to take any further part in the proceedings, since it was evident to them that it was not the purpose ot the committee that anything should be done. In doing this they placed all their faith in their ability to force the issue before the house by attaching pro visions for free coinage to an appropriation bill. To do this it was necessary, as they all appreciated, to overrule the decision of the chair, which necessarily would be in accordance with the rules. To-day's vote was a test of their strength on this sort of motion, and the result makes it evi. dent that no attempt to attach a free silver rider to an appropriation bill in the house can carry. The leaders of the republicans do not propose to let a free coinage bill go to the president as a rider on an appropriation bill if they can help it, as this would make his position particularly embarrassing, and would probably result in the failure of the appropriation bill, making an extra session necessary. It is asserted with a positiveness which indicates knowledge that the president has made up his mind that he will veto any bill which carries free coinage, even if it should be one of the regular appropriation bills. NO TIME SET. Goldbugs Seem to Have Control of the Coinage Committee. WASHmIOTON, Feb. 6.-The chairman this morning laid before the house coinage com mittee a request from the chamber of com merce of New York for a hearing on the sil ver bill next Thursday. The request was granted. A vote was then taken on the mo tion pending yesterday to strike out. that part of Bland's resolution directing the hearings to close on Thursday next. It re sulted adversely to Bland and the same fate awaited the amendments to fix it for Fri day and Saturday of next week. The mo tion to hold evening sessions on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of each week was then carried. Williams, of Illinois, made a motion that the chairman ask unanimous consent from the house for permission to sit during the session of the house. 'ar ried. Before adjournment a protest against further silver legislation, signed by seventy nine members of the Chicago board of trade, was presented. NATIONAL PRIDE. Should be Manifested in the Great World's Fair. WAsmHxOTON, Feb. 6.-While discussing the subject of the World's fair in the house Butterworth appealed to the gentlemen to say whether Chicago had not fulfilled all she had promised, and more; whether Illi nois had not met every requirement of law. Chicago had raised $11,000,0(X0. This was a United States enterprise, lid Chicago been liberal, or not? Wuas she to be cen sured because she doomed it proper to pay the dlrector general out of the national treasury. Chicago had done well. There was nriot an extrample of the kind in history where a city had done l8 much for a nation, and he asked for Chicago fair treat ment. Rleplying to Wilson's strictures upon the board of lady maniiiers, Blutterworth created much applause by gallant allusions to the wumen of the world. He proceeded to ranue in support of the salaries provided by the bill, and warmly supported their re. tention. The world was looking on to see whether i fair could be carried on one thou saud iilies from the seaboard. There ought to be seuitorial uride in this matter, Hi wished to say to the house that the people of Chicago and of the state of Illi nois had paid their twelve or fifteen mill ions to the nation's enterprise, and thereby rendered the nation a great service. TO IE SUItE. eaum l.iberally Coated with Whitewash by the Rtepubileans. W.ssanxoroan, Feb. 6.--Representative Morrill, chairman of the Raum investigat ing committee, has made report, which has been agreed to by his republican colleagues. The democratic members of the committee will present a minority report.
