li n VOL. XXXIi,--NO 140 . . HELENA, MONTANA. TUESDAY MORNING, JUNE 80, 1891. PRICE FIVE OBNTS BIG MUDDY RAMPANT, Dangerously High Water at Kansas City and. Other River Points. Twenty-Three Feet Above Low Water Mark and Still Ri.e ing Rapidly. ANw Cstanael Likely to s C.ut Near St. Ji~eph--tach Damage Has Resulted. KAwnsa Cnrx, June 29.-The Missouri river at this point is at a dangerously high stage. The water is the highest it has been sinee the great flood of 1881, but still lacks several feet of that year's record. Never theless, much damage has been done and much more is feared, as the cities above report a higher stage of water than here. At six o'cloek this evening the water registered three feet above high water mark, and twenty-three feet above standard low water nmark. The water is rising steadily an inch an hour, and will probably rise two or three feet more in the next day or two. Parts of Hiarlem, a hamlet just acrosp the river, are already submerged. About twenty-five families left their homes, taking their household goods, and are camping on high ground. All farms along the river are sub merged and crops ruined. The embankment of the Hannibal & St. Joseph road approaches the river at a right angle, across from this city. This embank ment has acted as a sort of levee, and pro teooted a vast expanse of river bottom be low it from flood. Some fears are ex pressed that the embankment may not be able to withstand the pressure. Should it give way much valuable land will be sub merged, including the track of the Kansas City Racing association. In view of this emergency, horses which have been stabled there have been removed to places of safety on this side of the river. High water has backed up the waters of the Raw, which empties into the Missouri at this place. Back waters have submerged mueh of the loirlands, and 100 or more squatters living there have been obliged to abandon'bbpir homes. Water is also backed ip in th toers in Kansas City; Kan., and running out of the manholes, flooding.various parts of the town. A dispatch from St. Joseph says the river has risen steadily since Saturday morning. At noon to-day it was within sixteen inches of the highest point reached ten years ago. Hssidents of French bottom, north of the city, are in a state of alarm, and many are preparing to move. If the river should overflow French bottom it is expected that a new channel will be cut, leaving many farms on an island and diverting the main stream from the Kansas a.ore two miles west. If the present rise continues twenty four hours the stock yards and a hundred homes in South St. Joseph will inundated. The situation is serious to packing inter ests, as well as to hundreds of small farm ers on low lands. Burlington tracks on the river fronit in the city have been strength ened by piling and rock to prevent- serious washouts. A dispatch from Atrhison, Kean., says the Missouri river is now two feet higher there than it has been this season. Farms on the Missouri side were submerged last night. Wheat fields will be a total lose. Water is also pouring across Donophon point, a neck of land opposite Donophou, Kan. This neck stood the flood of 1881, when the river was nine feet higher than now. No fear is en tertained that it will cut through this time. South of east of Atchison, land is falling into the stream by the acre. Leavenworth also renorts very high water, the inundation ot mnuch farm land and the destruction of crops. No damage has been done in that city. Sheep Killed by Hall. Dzxvea, June 29.-News is just received of a destructive cyclone which passed over this county, t'wenty-five miles east of this city. Houses were blown away, trees up rooted and crops for miles around com pletely ruined. A dozen persons were in Jured, but none seriously. C. S. Clark, who has a ranch near Deer T'rail. reported that hail fell for twenty minutes and killed about 200 sheep and put out the eves of many others. Chickens and ducks were also killed by hailstones, which are said to have been as large as hens' eggs. Aid Is Asked. CazEo.i, Iowa, June 29.--ov. Boles ar rived here this morning, and after survey ing the flooded district he issued a pro clamation to the people of the state setting forth the loss sustained by citizens and damage done to bridges and other public property, and recommending that the may ors of cities of the state an. all other char itably disposed persons take steps to or ganize proper committees to solicit aid for the unfortunates and see that the same is promptly forwarded to David H. Bloom, mayor of Cherokee, for distribution. Old Sol Blazing. BAN FIRAsNCso, June 29.-At two p. m. to day the signal service reported that the highest point reached by the thermometer during the day was 100 degrees.

No prostrations are repotted. Nelson Again on the Track. DENVER. June 29.-President Beaman, of the American Trotting association, will is sue a circular to-morrow reinstating the great stallion Nelson and his owner on the tracks of that association. Nelson wlas ruled off the tracks of the National and American associations in 1889, after an alleged fixed race at Beacon park, Massachusetts. In the ruling President Bsaman says there is no rule in the by-laws by which a man who drives his horse to win can be punished, even though it may be arranged beforehand for that horse to win the race. He also says tihe manner in which Nelson was suspended was illegal. Greeted by His People. CrmoAoo, June 29.-Prlnoe George, of Grece, arrived here this morning from Omaha. He is accompanied by Capt. Lah mer. of the Russian navy, and one servant. The prince is traveling incognito and reg istered at the Auditorium hotel as Count Folster.

NOW OWNS THE WORLD. The Standard 011 Company Recently Completed Its Coil Around the Earth. European Markets and Trade Have Been Acquired by Legal Methods. The Discovery of a Cheaper substitate for Oil Is the Only Hope of Emanetpation. Banzaw, June 29.--Reference has already been made in these dispatches to the ac tions of the Prussian minister of commerce, Herr Von Berlepsch, against the German American Petroleum company. Bremen is one of the greatest coal oil markets in the world.. How the great oil company got its grip on this place, and consequently on all Germany, is explained by the fact that the principal German firms had to submit to the formation of the German-American Pe troleum company or lose their importing trade. The whole of Germany is divided Into districts assigned to different firms belonging to the new company. Tanks have been erected at dif ferent points and it is now fea red the entire retail trade will fall into the hands of local branches of the great monopoly. The German-American com pany seems determined to absorb every branch of the coal oil trade. First, it got control ef American well owners and refin ers; then of the American export business; next of private shipping interests; then of the European importing business; then of exports from European ports, and now it seems to be trying to seize the entire retail trade. It is a monopoly of the whole world, and a private one at that, with its seat in America. If it succeeds in buying out or combining with the men who control the production of Russian coal oil, then the supply of the whole world will be subject to the power of a few gentlemen in New York. Mr. Max Gaede, director of the German Russian Naptha company, one of the best posted men on the coal oil trade, talking to day to a correspondent of the Associated press, said: "The Standard Oil company has, within the last few months, managed to secure the combination of all large houses in Bremen and Hamburg. It then organized them into a stock company-the German-American Petroleum company, in which it holds a controlling interest. It has done the same in Rotterdam and Antwerp, in order to control the trade of Holland and Belkium. We have just now received information that it has bought out the firm of Walter & Co., of Venice, who control the oil trade of Italy. You see the Standard is getting in its work everywhere. We may fight for some time to come, but I feel that eventually we must also submit. Until some cheaper substitute for coal oil is found or invented the Standard Oil com pany will have control of the trade the world over. I do not think there will be any material change in prices." When asked if the German government investigation of the matter would have any tangible result, Mr. Gaede said: "No; the German government can do nothing. Everything has been done in a strictly legal way. There is apparently no ring; only a regular mercantile corporation." SIXTY DELEGATES. Coming Over to Look Into the Tin Plate Business. LoNDoN, June 29.-The Times to-day, re ferring to the fact that sixty delegates from the tin plate working districts of Wales are going to the United States in order to in quire into the prospects of profitable em ployment there, and to the statement that American agents in London were buying the latest improvements in tin plate ma chines, as well as offering double wages to tin plate workers, save, "Should the deole gates report favolably upon the prospects for tin plate workers in the United States, it is not unlikely there will be so large an exodus to America as to lead to a great por tion of the trade hitherto monopolized by Wales being transferred to America. HLith erto the idea has been that it was impossi. ble to manufacture tin plate in America owing to atmospheric conditions, but tin plate makers who accompanied the iron and steel institute delegates to America have reported that there was nothing except the want of skilled labor to prevent successful manufacture of tin plate in America." A MIonarchistlc Un ion. PAras, June 29.-Under prompting from Cardinal Richards, other leaders of the episoopacy in France have united in sunpport of the republic in opposition to Cardinal Lavigerie's policy, in and a new party is forming called the Union de La France. The organizing committee includes the principal conservative senators and depu ties. The composition of the union is dis tinctly monarchistic, but legislative action will be limited to a demand for an altera tion of the scholistic laws affeating relig ions teaching and to the abolition of the military law involving a period of service for clerical novitiates. The committee aims to embrace Protestants within the union, although the prevailing spirit is Catholic. Anxious for Reoliprocity. LoNDoN, June 29.- The Times to-day gives prominence to a letter from Sir Henry Ar thur Blake, governor and commander-in chief of the island of Jamaica, who is at present in the city. In this communication Blake distinctly contradicts the Dunlap Dalsiel dispatch dated New York, June 25, stating Jamaica is anxious for reciprocity with the United States and asserting that the inhabitants are holding public meetings in order to advocate the reciprocity ide1. Gov. Blake in conclusion says the mer chants and people of Jamaica are anxious to extend their trade in all directions, but that Jamaica is not prepared to concede dife ential duties to the United States. William En Route to England. HaIxnono, June 30.-Emperor William, aooompanied by the empress and Prince and Prlinces Henry of Prussia, has arrived here on route to England. The emperor, conversing with Herr Nissen, chairman of chairman of the Hambarg-Amorican Steamship company, announced that the drelbund was yesterday prolonged for six yeais. Assent Revoked. Br. Joinr, N. F., June 29.-Cov. O'Brien has been directed by the imperial govern mont to revoke his assent to the order in council of the Newfoundland government refusing bait to Canumlian as well as French a.d giving a monopoly to the American sihermen. Hereafter licenses are to be ssuand to Canadians on the name terms as given to American fishermen. ANTI-QUAY REPUBLICANS. They Demand the ]etlrement of the Arch Corruptioalet. PtrnADmnsPIA, June 29.-The' address to the citizens of Pennsylvania, signed by -dlidolph Blankenburg, John T. Bailey & Op,, George Wharton Pepper, George Bern ham, Charles Heber Clark, Bev. Stephen W. Dane, Bev. W. N. MoVlckar, John H. Converse, Rev. Chas. Wood, Bev. S. D. McConnell and 186 others, was tade public this evening. The signere speak as Pennsylvania republicans, and their action is a protest against Sena tor Quay being longer a controlling faotor In afaire of the state. The statement is made that political methods in the state are now corrupt. In sharp contrast to the dis position of the rank and file of the party, the leadership is affirmed to be completely within Senator' Quay, "absolute in its control, unsorupnlous in its methods and disastrous in its results." The pnblic record of Senator Quay is dwelt upon, and the paper says: "Mr. Quay is mainly re sponsible for the overwhelming disaster which befell the republican party in this state the past autumn. It might have been supposed that a leader who inflicted such a wound upon his party, and to whom it had given so overwhelmingly evidence of lack of confidence in him, would have retired from public prominence. Mr. Quay, however, contents himself with an elaborate defence of his record before the United States senate. This was both untimely and unoonclusive." Qlay's lieutenants in the legislature are chalged with committing a stupid political blunder by hostility to the ballot refokm bill and with having vio lated express pledges of the party and ope ly defied the will of an overwhelming maj rity of their constituents. The ad dre continues: "There is fundamental fallioy in the theory of politics which has for years obtained in this state, and of, whi4h Mr. Quay has been the leading ex ponent. It is that public offices are spoils, the lawful property of politicians who cap ture them, and by whom they are dispensed in turn to their underlings as prizes of war. The disaster of a looted treasury is explain ed by the fact that the step from this fallacy to sthrtling and bold. appropriation of pub lie funds to the private uses of public officers is a long one in appearance only, not in reality. The party will soon be called upon to nominate a state and city treasurer, and attorney-general. Nom inations must be given to honest men or the party will meet another defeat. In the presence of these facts Pennsylvania republicans must n;t hesitate. It is a crisis and can only be met by the retirement of Mr. Quay. More competent and worthy leadership is necessary and unflinching do man4 must be made for the retirement' of ttrese'men from placesswhich they have dis grageO." WITH HIS GiUN. Bass Thought He Hlad a Horse Thief, But Was Mistaken. A man marched another up Main street at 2:30 o'clock this morning at the point of a gun. The man with the persuader led a a buckskin colored cayuse. At the city hall the man with the gun gave his name as George Bass, and said he was from Holmes' gulch. He wanted the young man he had walked into town at the muzzle of his weapon ar rested for taking his horse. The young man 'was F. R. Gates, an intelligent :rnd "nnocent looking person. He, denied any intention of stealing the animal, and offered to pay Bass whatever he wanted to charge for the use of his horse. From tre statements made to Sergeant Nicholson it appeared that Gates had worked three days for Bass and was on pretty good terms with him. He lives in a cabin near Bass. Yesterday he took the cayuse to round up some stock and instead of returning him to the corral turned the animal out on the range and intended to tell Bass about it in the morning. Gates has three horses of his own. He gave as his reason for not using one of them that they were footsore while the buckskin was shod. The sergeant could not see how Bass could hold the young man. After thinking the matter over Bass concluded that he had been somewhat hasty. By this time his anger seemed to have left him, and the men left the station house pretty good friends. THERE WAS A FIGHT. Labor Troubles I Washlington Lead Up to Death. SEATTLE, Wash., June 29.-Matters at the Franklin coal mine assumed a more threat ening aspect to-day and Col. Haynes has telegraphed here for another company of militia.with more ammunition. Porter Rob inson, one of the mine bosses, was brought here to-day by a military guard charged wit h killing Tom Morris and Ed William s, lead ers in yesterday's riot. The fight lasted fully half art hour, resulting in the death of the men named above, the wounding of four strikers, two w3men and one colored guard. The trouble commenced on the arrival of the evening train from New Cas tie with a number of guards who had escorted a load of negroes to the latter camo. The guards say when the train was pulling into Franklin it was fired upon by some of the white miners from am bush. Guards returned the fire fromn the windows and when the train stopped at the depot the white the miners commenced firing upon the negroes camp. Tha negroes went wild and could not be restrained by the guards. Securing their arms, they poured volley after volley at their assailants and only ceased when the latter dispersed. Over a thousand shots were fired. Conspired Against the Switchmen. TEaRE HAUTE, Ind., June 29.-The com mittee appointed to investigate the charge of conspiracy preferred against the Brother hood of Railway Trainmen by the switch. men's organization, in connection with the recent lockout of the latter's employes of the Northwestern road reported to-day to the sup eme councll of the federation, finding the brotherhood guilty. The switchmen had alleged that trainmen had conspired with the railway officials to pro vide men for the awitchmen's places. When a vote was taken on expulsion two firemen delegatun voted with three trainmen delegates, but three con ductors voted for expulsion, making the vote six to five against the offending body. nrutally Drowned a I.ld P.iTTsrtr n, June d9.-Jo Costello was ar rested to-night for the peculiarly inhaman drowning of an Italian boy named Con. atantino Demuro, at Sitoop's ferry, on the Ohiotriver, this morning. The boy was wimminig with some Americans who began ducking the little Italian, who could net swim. A man on the bank yelled "Drown the - Italian!" This man, who proved to be Costello, then entered toe water, and after repeatedly duckingiu the strangling boy, deliberately drowned him. Costello was identified by terrilied onlookers and jailed. Labor Troubles (irewing. Pr.reauxo, Pa., July 29.-Labor troubles are growing here, the most porteutious be ing the unexpected attitude of western manufaeturero towards the new scale of the Autaigamuted association. The manufau turers are opposed to every new clause in the soale, but especially to the nine-hour beat. ti ne of th mauunufactu-ers says that unless the ninie-hour rule is eliminated yvery ruin will be shut down. The existing seale expires to-morrow, and unless some agreement is reached the mills must shut down, or attempt to run without Amaliga mated men. THE BOOM IN ARGENTINE, Report of Consul Baker Touching the Recent Financial Crash Down There. Great Development of the Country and Disproportionate In crease of Debt. The Patne not Over, Thinks the Consul- Harrison Second Choice of Kin nesota tRepublleans. WASIRRwrow . June 29.-The report of United htates Consul Baker, stationed at Buenos Ayres, touching the recent financial crash in the Argentine republic, has just been received at the state department. He described the feeling produced by the Intel ligence that a new national loan had been placed in London, providing for interest on the foreign debt for three years, and then says: "But the Argentine people had not re covered from its rejoicing when it was confronted with the intelligence that the National bank and the bank of the Pror ince of Buenos Ayres, the two great finan cial institutions of the country, the first accredited with a capital of $40,000,000 and the other with $32,000,000, and each with deposits amounting respectively to double those sums, owing to bad management and reckless loans to government favorites and political men of straw, were in distress and unable to meet the calls of their depositors, and that un less the government came to their relief they would be compelled to close their doors, thus suggesting, if not opening, the way to an uprising among thousands of working men who had placed their earnings in those banks for safekeeping. "The government came to the rescue. By extraordinary efforts, the foreign banks do ing the most of the subscribing land the wealthiest natives very little of it, about $40,000,000 of the amount proposed has been raised, and the national government, though needing more, has accepted it at seventy-five cent on the dollar, the interest being six per cent. Baker says many think that the crisis is over, but it does not look so to him. A sta tistical summary of the growth of the Ar gentine Republic since 1861 shows that in thirty years the population has increased from 1,350,000 to 4,000,000, and the number of acres in cultivation from 480,000 to 700, 000. In 1861 the only railroad in existence was from Buenos Ayres to Merio, a distance of eighteen miles. Now there are over 5,000 miles open to traffic and 6,000 more in course of conslruction. The commerce and national wealth have multiplied five times within the same period, but the public.debt has increased in much greater proportion. It was $17,000,000 in 1861; in' 1890 it was $401,000,000 exclusive of cedulas and paper currency,which would raise it to $618,000,000. Ex-Congressman Perkins, of Kansas, who was a member of the commission which went to Mankato, Minn., to select a site for a new public building in that city, has re turned to Washington. Mr. Perkins said to-day that he met a good many prominent republican politicians in Minnesota. He asserts that they are sanguine of party vic tory in the next presidential campaign. He believes Blaine would have no trouble in securing the Minnesota delegation if he de cides to be a candidate. If he is not, Mr. Perkins thinks that Harrison is the second choice. The Kansan says Minnesota republicans believe that the alliance moverent is dead in the North Star state. He does not be lieve that Ienator Plumb can afford to take the third party nomination for president. He admits, however, that there is a dicker on foot between Plumb and some of the lead ers of the new movement. He says he has heard considerable talk about it, but does not think it will amount to anything in the end. REBIEL ENVOYS. Why not R6eeived by the Washington Government. WASHINOTON, June 29.-Dom Pedro Montt, Chilian congressional envoy, allowed an other day to pass without his appearance at the executive mansion or department of state. It now begins to appear that the mission with which Montt and assooiates is charged is a failure in so far as their official recognition is concerned, and it is improb able that they will be received in any capacity either officially or unofficially by any executive officer of this government. A person well versed in diplomatic prac. tices, thoroughly acquainted with the his tory of the department of state, this after noon said the reason for the adoption of this course by our government was broader than any of the questions in volved in the present case, and was founded upon a uniform line of precedents running back to the date of our civil war. Early in the history of the rebellion the confederacy sent representatives to London and Paris to secure recognition for their caouse. Mr. Seward, then secretary of state, promptly instructed Messrs. Adams and Dayton, United States ministers to Great Britain and France, that the reception of these confederate agents, either officially or privately, would be regarded by the United States as cause for breaking off diplomatic relations. Further than this, Mr. teward refused to receive a joint note of the British and French minister refer ring to the state of the civil war in the United States and undertaking that their governmentsshould noact strictly as neutrals. The secretary's rejoinder to this last state ment was that the governments could only openly act as friends of the United States. Later on Seward refused to hold any inter comese with Emperor Maximillian. then striving to establish his empire in Mexico, or evon to receive floru the latter con dolence on the death of President Lincoln. So it has been the uniform custom of the United States government, and a cusnto which will not, in the judgment of diplo mats, be broken in the case of the Chilian insurgents, to refuse to recognize revolu tionary governments in American repub lies. It is said in diplomatic circles that this custom is founded upon good policy. and tends to conserve Amorican interests. A t)etaltun Awaited. WASHINGTON, June 29.-A question of in terest to army officers has been presented to Acting Secretary Grant for settlement, involving the rights and duties of staff oti orse. (Gn. Howard, commanding the divi sion of the Atlantic, recently called a court martial and detailed for duties as a mem ber one of the oommissary of oers stationed within his division. The officer protested against this detail and claimed exemp tion from such duty under the regulation which placed hiu under direct orders of the secretary of war. No deoision has yet been given in this and it is awaited with great interest by eugineers, commisslary and other staff otlioers. A DEPRAVED MISCREANT. illled at Last and the At eJustlOea by Ills Nelghbors. SPA, AnD, Ill., June 29.-About twelve years ago John Carver died, leaving his widow and children about $15,000. The widow subsequently married a mere boy named Royal Frisby. The youthful hus band soon entered on a career of debauch ery and began treating his wife in a most brutal manner. The community for a long time has been incensed at his actions, but not until recently was the full extent of his brutality known.

On Friday her father, who has been in town for several days, heard of her presence in Helena. He visited the houses of'several acquaintance* where he thought she would be likely to stop, but they had heard nothing of Ada. Mr. Vaughan be came quite anxious last taturday and commenced a vigorous search for her daughter, but so far has failed to get any trace of her. On Satur day he heard she was at Patrick Power's ranch in the valley and drove down there t and again was disappointed. The people, there had not seen her.
