VOL XXXIL,--NO 156. HELENA. MONTANA. ~THURSDAY MNORNIN'G. JULY 9, 1891. PRICE FIVE CENTS THE YATICAN FINHANCES, Reported to Be in a Pretty Way, Owing to Imprudent In. vestments. Mgr. Folohi Dismissed From Office as Administrator of Vati can Finances. Project to Establish a Chain of Great Catholle Banks-Why the Plan Has Failed. Rouar, July 8.-Additional important communications from an unusual but re liable source in regard to the crisis in St. Peter's pence has just come to hand. It has already been announced that the pope has dismissed Mar. Folchi and the old ad s ministration, appointing in their place a commission consisting of MrUs. Appolini, Diruggiere and Aloise Massella, to whom given full powers. No one, however, has yet been able to And out the exact motive or real secret of the affair which brought about this important change. It was known that Mgr. Foloh's dismissal was de cided upon on account of losses sustained by Peter's pence, and because of imprudent investments and loans which had been made under his administration, but that was all. It is now known that Folchi last winter, supported by Prince Buoncompagni and Baren Lezzaroni resolved, in order to save the Banco di Roma, in which the Vati can held 10,000 out of 12,000 shares, besides other securities, to establish, first in Paris and London and afterwards in Rome, Ber lin and New York, a syndicate of Catholic banks, with the object of absorbing the financial societies of Rome, which were known to be in disastrous condition, and restore them to vitality, wh ile at the same time raising the value' of the depreciated securities above all they wanted to save the Banco di Roma, intending, as they eventu ally did, to entirely reconstruct it. This Banco di Roma was created with a nominal capital of 6,000,000 liras ($1,200,000) but the real working capital was only half that amount. Mgr. Folchi, having taken on account five-sixth of all shares, the ad ministration of St. Peter's pence found it self involved really to the extent of 2,500, 000 lireas, or $500,000. Folchi, had, more over, deposited in the bank 8,000,000 lires. At that time Rome financial circles were in terested in supporting the creation of the Catholic banks in order to put depreciated securities on aflrmer footing. Folchi there fore proposed that the vatican enter a combi natio 'to extend ll,000,000 lires, urging that the millions invested in the Banco di Roma couldhot be eaved in any other way. Car dinal Ruggierco opposed the project, and a commission of cardinals finally supported him. But as the committee was merely consult ative Folohi ignored them and in conjunc tion with Lazzaroni and Buoncompagni, carried out his project. Folchi commenced by sending a part of the money to Paris, where the first of the proposed banks was founded. But as the pope had not been in formed of this arbitrary speculation, Folchi was called to order, afterwards dismissed, and the commission of cardinals, hitherto consultative, became a deliberating body. 'T'ree years have elapsed since the effort was made to found a Catholic bank in New York, and then the archbishop of New York wras compelled to intervene and disengage the responsibilities of the holy see. Last winter, however, another endeavor in this direction was made. The combination again did not snoceed, but as Lazzaroni and I l'olchi (with the supposed support of the i vatican) were the promoters, it was believed success was assured. Now, however, the fall of Folchi has put everything in peril. T'he pope never has and never will enter in to a combination of this sort. As Folchi had placed a part of Peter's pence money in the Roman speculations, which at first brought good returns and only lately de creased in value, the actual losses are not great. Briefly, the situation is about as follows: -Vhen Mgr. Folchi took the administration of vatican finances, he had under his con trol about 25,000,000 lira, left after eight years of administration of about 31,000,(00 lire, of which, however, 6,000,000 are still in danger, as they for,sist of loans made to Roman princes and of a large number of i depreciated securities. At the same time, Folchi has paid over each year to the pope the sum of $120,000 to cover the extraordi naryexpensesof the vatican. Consequently his adversaries can only reproach him with makina impirudent investments and with the Catholic bank affair. Reaction, conse naently, is already begininning to be noticed in his favor and mlany JLomlllan groups are , leginning to think hil riva4s acted too vio- c lently. In any case the pope was kept in c i:norance of thero speculations and it is n Iknown that lihe disapproves and always has t disapproved all kinds of Catholic banks. STRINGS ON WILLIAM.

There wais no mnietake ihout the serious nature of te chaallleno either. T'he baron had inaslted her by a certain levity of speech andl the lady detrlllinied to nltke an xntulmple of h llll.

Miss Stevenson is an excellent shot, a fact which the baron must have known, for he backed out with a very hum ble apology. It would ill become him, he declared, to meet n woman in a duel, but be wished above all else to declare thait he had not purposely used the word that caused Miss Stevenson's annoyance. TAE VERY FINEST. 3 Gala Opera Performance - Thinks He lHeard a HIIlLet. LoNeoN, July 8.-The gala opera per formance this evening weeas the finest speo tacle ever witnessed in London, surpassing in every way any previous affair of the kind. The interior of the opera house was lavishly decorated. Several thousand pounds were spent for flowers alone. The audience was composed of the boat known of the aristocracy. The prince of Wales conducted the empress and the em peror conducted the princess of Wales to the royal box. ' he duke and duchess of Edinburgh, duke and duchess of Con naught, duke and ducheps of Fife, marquis and marchioness of Lorne and twenty others of the royal family composed the rest of the party. The programme was splendidly carried out. Miss Eames, Mme. Albani and l)eressekes received unstinted plaudits from the occupants of the loyal boxes. It was after midnight before the Huguenots was begun. T'e lives of the German emperor and I other royalties were endangered by an in cident which occurred at the review of Eton volunteers Monday, and which was kept secret. A reporter learned the facts tonight from a personof undoubted author ity. The emperor, at the time referred to, was watching the evolutions of Sthe boys with great interest and stood chatting with the prince of Wales and others directly in front of the line. Fi nally, the command of fire was given, which was followed by an explosion from a solitary gun, while the hammers of all other guns simply clicked, as was intended. It was explained that one boy had put in a blank cartridge by mistake, but it is also asserted that it was a ball cartridge which the lad had carelessly left in his gun the week before. After the range firing all officers present hastened to assure the emperor it was only a blank cartridge. The emperor, smiling, was unmoved, but on returning home, it is reported that he said he was certain it was no blank cartridge, because he heard the whiz of the bullet distinctly. Expelled Missionaries. SAN FuANcrsco, July 8.-The Chronicle's Honolulu advices state that the missionary steamer Morning Star arrived there with some of the American missionaries expelled by the Spanish forces in Ponape, which are endeavoring to strengthen their sovereign ty over the Caroline Indians.

Montana's Chief Executive Looking After State Interests at the National Capital. Delayed Payment of the Five Per Cent Bonus Due on Publio Lands Sold. Gov. Toole Thinks Montana WVii lie hafely DemuocraUcl When the l,:lectluu )ay Comes Around. WASHINGTON, July 8.-[Special.]-Gov. J. K. Toole, of Montana, is in Washington to remain several days. He spent some time in consultation with Land Commissioner Carter to-day, over land matters in which Montana is interested. His principal busi ness with Mr. Carter was to find out when the five per cent due his state from the sale of public lands would be paid. Iie discovered that it would be several weeks before any settlement could be made. It will be re membered that a bill was passed by the senate last session of congress providing that the bonus should be paid the newly admitted states. Gov. Toole refused to say much about the political situation in Montana. He said the people were paying little attention to politics at this time. He was confident, however, that the campaign next year would be exciting enough to be interesting. He is of the opinion that the democrats will be able to carry the state by a good working majority. DIPLOMATIC CORRESPONDENCE. The United States as Peacemaker Between England and Venezuela. WAsHINCTON, July 8.-In the diplomatic correspondence of last year, just pub lished, is a statement of the efforts made by the government of the United States to secure an amicable adjustment of the boundary dispute between Venezuela and Great Britain. February 17, 1890, the Ven ezuelan minister represented to Sec retary Blaine that the British gov ernment had forcibly taken posses sion of a part of Venezuela, near Guinea, and begged the intervention of the United States. Blaine instructed Minister Lincoln at London to use his good offices with Lord Salisbury to bring about the re sumption of diplomatic intercourse be tween Great Brltain end Venezuela as a preliminary step to settlement by arbitra tion, and to propose an informal confer ence in Washington or London, The l'osi tion of the United States is one solely of impartial friendship. Lord Salisbury, after some time, wrote Minister Lincoln saying her majesty's gov ernoment was very sensible of the friendly feeling which prompted the offer on the part of the United States. but was at the present time in communication with the Venezulan minister in Paris in reference to the renewal of diplomatic relations, the rupture of which was the oat of Venezuela. Hie added that he had informed Senor Ur baneja of the willingness of Great Britain to abandon, certain portions of the claim which they believe themselves in strict right entitled to make and to submit other portions to arbitration, reserving only that territory as to which they believe their rights admit of no reasonnble doubt. Public opinion on the subject, he said, is unfortunately excited in Venezaola and the facts of the case have been misunderstood. On June 25, Mr. Lincoln presented to Lord Salisbury, Sr. Fulido, special Venezulan envoy, who was courteously received, and there the matter ended so far as the corre spondenco shows.

MAY HAVE BEEN MURDER Death of a Woman at Great Falls Under Peculiar Circum stances. Probably From the Effects of a Severe Boating by Her Paramour. Iluw Ile Flatharld ountry Observed in deprdendnts I)ly--(;enaeral News Fromr KIalispell. GuriAT FALLs, Julp M.--[Hpecial.1--I'o ple were much horrified this morning on learning that during the night a most wretched death had occurred under brutal and murderous circumstances. on the 2d of July a man and woman came here from lrHlena, claiming to be J. Onllagrher and wife. They took rooms at the Bristol hotel and remained there a few days. 'l'hcy were displeased at something there and took a room ait the (lore block, kept by- Mrs. G(owan. l'tis was a ploa:rtit room on the second floor, and int the back rof the build I ing. lie claimed to be a railroader, and to be looking for work, and to lighten ex penees desired that his wifer should work in the house until he got employment. ]te is low in atature, light complexion, with whliticsh mustache, and though not bad looking, is not of a pleasing appearance. She was rather stout, had short dark hair, black eyes and a clear complexion, and was rather good looking. Neither was ad valnced in years. It appears that the couple did not get along pleasantly but had quite a numb :r of quarrels and that he was jeralou. of her. Hi was out until late last evening arld she, tired of waiting for him, woet to a restaurant near by to get supper. tie went to the room and missing her wont to the restaurant an d scolded her because she had not waited for him And compelled her to return without her supper. 'Ihey went across the back way and he scolded and quarreled with h "r. O() approaching the building she ran up the back steps to their room, locking the door. IHe attempted to g-t in, but she would not permithim. tie went an l climbed over the shed close by and got through a window in to the room. A quarrel took plas,. during which he struck her. She screamed, at tracting the attention of the landlady, whose presence put an end to the quar rel. IH shortly went out of the room, and after a while returned with her supper. She then com plained of being sick, acted strangely and did not eat. She began frothing from the mionuth, grew worse and was partly uncon scions. Sire seemed in much misery and moaned, "My head is broken." tnd "He is kicking me to pieces." About 10 o'clock Dr. Ferguson was called in, but sihe was then unlconslcious and in It stupor, from which she never recovered. She did not present any symptoms of poi soning, but was very weak and in a stunor.

They are the talk of the town. those two steeples which are being put up on the east and west ends of the new High Hehool building. 'I he public has heard a great deal about the high school building-how it started out to cost $63,t000 and will come nearer , 100,W(r) before completion. Look ing at the result of the expenditure, how ever, as seen in an imposing stone etrno ture, the extra cost was ill a measure overlooked. The high school building Is really a line looking edifie, from an irchi tectural standpoint as well as from the standpomt of ordinary mortals whose taster have not been educated up to the appreciation of the brantifnl in art. Some days ago, however, people who have been watchiii2 the progress of the workmen were surprised to see two cone shaped arrangements growing on top the building, one on either end. As the double headed monstrosity continued to wax in height it was seen that the massive and im posing stone building was to be surmounted Ly two small steeples about is much in keeping with the style and character of the structure as they were proportionate to its size. Remarks could be heard on all sides and they were niot always complimentary. The general opinion is that the building would look much better without its niinia ture steeples. They may present a different appearance when thlb whole thing is com pleted, but at present they are singularly and strikingly unattractive.
