VOL. XXXII.-NO 158.. AENA, MONTANA. SATURDAY MORNING,. JULY 11, 1891. PRICE FIVE CENTS
THEY HOOTED THE HEIR, A Rather Mixed Reception Given Wales in the Famous Pa geant Yesterday. Other Members of the Royal and Imperial Families Well Received. Cmmonplace Speech of the Young Kalsor, Who Had Evidently Been Carefully Coached. Loeuno, July 10.-The inhabitants of London and vicinity turned out in force to witness the progress in state of Emperor William from Buckingham palace to Guild Hall and back to the palace after partaking of the hospitality of the lord mayor. The streets through which the procession passed were lined with an immense crowd of people and a large forc of police and soldiers kept them clear. As'the procession left the palace from all over the city peals of bells rang out and an nounced the imperial pageant had com menced. The decorations were superb, every inch of the way from the strand to Guild Hall abounding in colors with the bunting of every nation. On the way to the Thames embankment, at Ludgate circus where the rougher ele 3ent of the city was packed, in all numer ons thoroughfares branching into that much-frequented center, there were some exciting incidents. This rowdy element had been getting up steam on beer and gin for hours, and had worked itself into a frame of mind well adapted to giving the prince of Wales or anybody else a warm re ception. While waiting foy the heir appar ent, there were a number of lively scerim mages between hoodlums and the police, in which the latter generally managed to,come out ahead, and which ended in one or more rufans being relegated to the rear and thence escorted to the nearest police sta tion. All this had been the tuning up of the mob, as it were, so when the prince of Wales' carriage appeared it was in condi ion to be an unpleasant thing. The authori ties, it is understood, received intimation that roughs were prepared to give him a distinctly hostile reception, in any case. When the carriage containing the prince and princess of Wales passed through Ludgate circus it was driven at a decidedly rapid pace, so much so that the carriage had passed the dangerous spot before the main body of the crowd was aware that the prince was in their midst. As it was, how ever,,in spite of the presence of the princess of Wales beside him, the prince was greeted with repeated outbursts of jeering and bporings, whidh were only slightly set of bya few faint cheers. In the face of this 'bostile demonstration the prince, ap parently unmoved, looked straight to his front, aid passed the excited crowd, and made no attempt to reply by a salute toifie weak oheerings which broke out in op,-osi tlon to "booring." etc. The reception aocorded to the prince of Wales was in strong contrast to the hearty, ringing cheers with which the duke of Con naught, his brother, was greeted by the Ludgate circus crowd as the duke passed over the same ground. The appearance of Emperor William was the signal for tremendous cheering. The reception of the prince of Wales was of a mnixed character, though on the whole fa vorable. The imperial party reached Guild hall at 1:25. The lord mayor received the guests at the entrance, and the procession formed and moved to the library.- where the court of the common council is held. The recorder read an address to his majesty, declaring that the lord mayor and corporation extended a sincere swelcomle and declaring his visit to the queen a happy augury of the continuance of the friendly and affeotiopate relations so long existing between the two nations. 'The address was presented in a splendid gold casket, richly enameled and studded with jewels. The emperor replied to the address, ex pressing thanks for the welcome extended him. He said he would always, cas far as it lily in his power, maintain the historical friendship existing between lEngland and Gormany. Continuing, he said: "My aim is, above all, the maintenance of peace, for peace alone can give the confidence neces sery to a healthy development of science, art and trade. Only so long as pence re mains are we tat liberty to bestow earnest thoughts upon the creat problems the solution of which, in fairness and equity, I consider the most prominent duty of our time. I shall always be found ready to unite with you and with other nations in a common labor for peaceful progress, friendly intercourse and the advancement of civilization." A dinner in Guild hall followed the pro ceedings in the library. The emperor led the way into the ban quet hall, having upon his arm the lady mayoress, Lady Savory. They were fol lowed by the lord mayor and the empress, the prince and princess of Wales and other members of the royal family. After re freshments formal speeches of welcome wore made. At 2:30 the imuperial party re turned to Blclkingham palace by way of the Thames embankment. The morning's scenes were roeeatod on the route. AT THlE STATE I.ALL. The Emperor Again Malkes lerereoce to hopes of Alliance. IConyright, 1891. Now York Associated Press.1 LONDON, July 10.-The emperor. after banquetting with the duke of Cambridge at Gloucester house, finished the day at the state ball at Iluckiugham palace. The din nor was largely a military and naval af fair. The emperor, in a short speech, made franker reference to hopis of alliance in England arising from his cordial welcome in this oity than probably Lord Salisbury liked to hear. Only an echo of imperial words have yet ieached the outside official circle present, yet ,vords in some form will soon find an outlet. There are increasing fears that the emperor intends the political results of his visit shall be of mnomentous conseluence. After conclusion of the public function to-morrow at Wimbletun, thi emperor will pro ceed to Lord Salisbury's sent, Hatfield house, There tie iprolonged, almost daily, conferences between the English premier aind the emperor's foreign secretary will close with a conference at which the em peror will Ia, present. It will be impllosible to persuade the French and RIussian gov ernments that all this means anything but the practical absorption of England in the central European alliance. Itadical memlbers of the commons renewed an attempt to-night to try to tind out how far the English government is committed. Sir James Fi'rguson was asked whether ar bitration with France with refereuce to hswfouodland was progressing, iand Sir James was obliged to deprecate discussion on the subject and to decline mlfor anltion. Philip Stanhope demanded definite declarations in tlgard to the attitude of the goverinllelnt toward ithe lDriebund but got none. O)ther sonud radi cals announced opon afillistion of the gor ernment with the emperor's policy as giv ing France Just cause of offense. The ministerial responses were purposely empty of all meaning. Mr. Stanhope's suggestion that the government invite President Car not to England obtained reply from Mr. Smith that the government could not send such an invitation but it woul3 always be glad to see the head of the French or any other friendly nation. It was an insincere response Smith knowing that only last necessities of state would make the queen willing or the court consent to receive President Carnot. A report that Minister and Mrs. Lincoln and leading officials of the United States legation were absent from yesterday's garden party is inaccurate. 'They have been present at every important function. oeared by the formidable character of the opposition to the cattle bill, Mr. Chaplin, president of the board of agriculture, has fallen back upon the rights of the board to issue a series of restrictive regulations. Not being quite sure about the extent of rights, he has invited ship owners to a conference on the subject on Tuesday next. Ship owners will send delegates advised to tell Mr. Chaplin it will be best to leave the trade alone, or simply make the British harmonize with American regulations. What the Officer Heard. HArnvno, July 10.-An officer of the new Hamburg-American steamship Fuerat Bis marck, on which vessel the emperor and empress of Germany recently went to Hell goland. made a somewhat curious state ment in regard to the alleged possibility of the imperial couple visiting tne United States. The officer says he hoard the em press ask her husband whether he would go to America in the Fuerest Bismarck. To this question the emperor is said to have replied, smiling, "Do you really think we should go to the United States." Accepted a Present. OTTAWA, Ont., July 10.-Chief Engineer Perley, of the public works department, before the privileges and elections commit tee, admitted that the statement made be fore the committee by Owen E. Murphy that he, Parley, had accepted from him a present of jewelry valued at $1,885 was true. Murphy is a member of the firm of contractors wbose alleged bribing of the minister of public works and Hon. Thomas McGranry, M. P., is being investigated. The Advance Meeting. TonoroT, Ont., July 10.-The national council of the National Educational asso. liation, which meets in advance of the as sociation, held its first session here to-day.

WAsmNOTON, July 10.-The Chilian min isater to-day received advices from Paris re garding the decision of the French court and stating that the two cruisers which have been finished will immediately sail for Chili. The battle ship Pratt will be fin ishec soon. Caught in a Gale. SrMooF, Out., July 10.-News reached here last night of the drowning near Long Point, during the big gale which prevailed Friday last, of Major John W. Ryerson, a rominment resident of this place, and Able Bunker, a commereial traveler, of Toronto, who had gone to the Point last Wednesday fishing.

He was identi fled as a hunter and came to tie reichsrath to demand justice in an imaginary law suit with the Rothschilds. Only Election Excitement. CITY or Mxxico, July 10.-A dispatch from Guatemala says that the reports of revolution in that country telegraphed to the United States are exaggerated. There has been some rioting, but this was merely the result of election excitement. Strike Ended. BRnneELS, July 10.-The great strike of Belgian miners is ended. The 4,500 men who have been on a strike for seventy days returned to work on the order of the Knights of Labor council. Pardoned by the President. CITY or MFXICO, July 10.-President DiaR has pardoned Carlos Zaremba, American, sentenced to four years imprisonment for fc:gery and for using fraudulent govern ment seals. MURDER MOST FOUL. A Visitor Finds the Entire Family In Cold Blood. Ot.uAH, Neb., July 10.-A special tele gram from Ellis, Nob., says: "Some time last night the most horrible tragedy ever enacted in this section of Nebraska oc curred. This afternoon Mrs. Dr. Alien, of Beatrice, came to Ellis on a visit to her brother, John H. Puterbhauh, who lives a mile and a half south of town. She was driven to the farm by Louis Petting and knocked at the door, but re ceived no reply. They entered, the door not being looked, and found a horrible state of affairs. Her brother was lying on the door, his face covered with blood. In bed was his mother with a bullet through her head. In bed with her was a two-year old baby, also shot through the bead. On a lounge in the room was another Iead oc cupied by two young girls, one 13 and one 11, both dead with bullet holes in their bends. How they met their terrible fate is yet unknown. The general belief is that the terrible deed was the work of the husband and father. The faces of the dead, although covered with blood, were calm as though slecping. All seemed to have been killed while sleeping and were shot directly through the skull. Puterbangh was not a drinking man. He suffered from the grip last csring and since then has not been in the beat of health. It is thought he killed his family and commit ted suicide. No Place for Third Party People. FoRT WonRT, Tex., July 10.-The state convention of the section of the Farmers' alliance opposed to the sub-treasury scheme began here this afternoon. E. W. Bragg presided. In his address he said if any delegates were present who fa vored the sub-treasure scheme or the formation of a third party that dole gate would tind more cltgenial politioal companionbhip in some other fold. These nentiments were heartily applauded and all the delepntes remained in the hall. The tleeting adjourned temporarily to allow the selection of colmiitteemen. Carried by the Clearlng onnses.

De)positors will be paid in full and stockholders will possibly got thirty-flve cents. WANAMAKER IMPLICATED Postmaster General Revises His Statement of His .Connection With the Keystone. Acoording to Bardsley Wana maker Knowingly Hold Over Issued Stock. Examiner Drew Under the Thumbs of the IVreckers-"Honest John" Fool. Ish All His Lite. PUTLADnLPHTA, July 10.-The Bardsley in vestigating committee held another session to-day at which Postmaster-General Wana maker testified again concerning his trans action with the Keystone bank, and the statement made by Bardsley to Editor Mc Lade, of the Lodger, was for the first time made public. It proved to be a long inter view in which Hardsley again went over the story of the Keystone bank and stoutly maintained that he put the $930,000 in the bank, but did not know what became of it. Bardsley said that Bank Examiner Drew had been a heavy borrower from the Key stone and was completely under the thumb of Lucas and Marsh. In regard to John Wanamaker, Bardsley said Marsh told him Wanamaker knowingly held over-issued bank stock, demanded $100,000 for it and upset plans for reorganizing the bank. Marsh retained Sulzberger and Johnson as counsel and they made a demand on Wana maker, which he refused, proposing that the Lucas estate should pay him $50,000, Marsh $20,000 and the bank $25,000. The lawyers then notified Wanamaker if the fraudulent shares were not delivered by a specified date they would resort to legal measures. The shares were then turned over without delay. Bardsley asserted that Wanamaker had made a threat that he would see Comptroller Lacey, and have the bank closed before they expected it. In March, 1890, Marsh came to him and said Wanamaker wanted $200,000 at once, and Bardsley let Marsh have the money. Bards ley also talked a great deal about his connec tion in the past with several promi nent Philadelphians, and blamed them for the stand they had taken against him. Speaking of the scheme to get the gas works from the city, Bardsley asserted that Col. McClure, of the Times. was in it. McClure was to get a big block of stock for his advocacy in his paper and was not to pay a cent for it. ltegarding the payment of $500 to Hugh Mullen, Bardsley said Mayor Fltler wanted Mullen appointed mercantile appraiser, and W. M. Ringerly. of the Record, wanted Richard J. Lennon appointed to the same place. Afterwards Bardsley learned that Mat Quay and the auditor general were pushing Gen. Albert Crawford for the s'me place. The result was that overtures were made to Singerly to draw Lennon out of the fight and he was promised if Lennon was taken out that $100,000 of the state money would be deposited in Chestnut Street bank. This was done and Mayor Fitler got angry at what he claimed to be a broken promise. Bardsley then paid Mullen $500 to redeem his prom ise to the mayor. Bardsley said that B. B. Yard got a great deal of the Keystone money. He was in the pool with Lucas andl Marsh, and Marsh allowed him to over draw his account $90,000, even when the run on the bank was going on. The re mainder of the statement was simply a story of Bardsloy's troubles containing no new facts. Yard was then called, but did not respond, his counsel announcing his case had been appealed. The committee instructed the city solicitor to take steps to compel Yard to appear. Then Postmaster General Wanamaker appeared. He said he never pledged over-issued stock after he was told it was an over issue, and it was out of his hands at the time. He did not know Yard, and had never met Mr. Lucas but once. When asked what transpired between him and Marsh at Washington, he said Marsh asked him to assist the bank, and he de clined. Wanamaker said his firm's balance in the Keystone at the time of the run was $10,0.0 and when it closed it was much larger The last money received from the bank was about a year before the bank closed, and the last discount was obtained in October, 1890. As to the story told by Bardsley about threats to close the bank and that the lawyers had compelled him to return the stock, Wanamaker said it was abso lutely false. Granville Haines and Samuel B. Huey came to Wanamaker at Washing ton to see him about over-issued stock and he told them they must settle for it and if they did not, in justice to himself he should inform the comptroller of the currency. After the bank closed he gave up the stock. Bardeley's statement that Marsh obtained from him $200,000 for Wanamaker in March, 1890. was absolutely untrue, without the slightest foundation, and Wannmaker invited the committee to inspect his books. Wanamaklr was in formed by a member of the committee that during their examination of the Keystone stock book they found 3,200 sha es of stock in his name in addition to 2,515 shares which he testified had been uiven him by Lucas to use as collateral for the deal. "When I nppeared before the committee." said Mr. Wanamaker, "I confined mnyself i rincipally to thie business of the firm in nmy deals wiith Lucas in Rleading. I lhad in hand certain private matters, but did not suppose the committee wanted to hear of private operations," Wanemaker tlhen again referred to the 2,515 shares which he had held as collat eral and gave the committeo a list of those ho had turned over to the Lucas es tate. That some of tholse shares haild boeen at one time in his name hlie did tiot state, as he had not used them in any operation. 1i regard to the stook found in his natis-, 11t, shares of It, hlie said, wan hold by Irvin and Toland, his bankers, is collateral. This reduced It to 2,(000) shares of stock. Of these five blocks of 2001 shares each wore dasted March 3, 188t;, and while issued in his name, the power of attorney had never been endorsed by hint, and they could never have been used. 'The next lot, live blocks, 200 shlares each, were dated four weeks earlier. He was dirertor inl th, Grandiil Trust company. Luncas came to him siinid asked him to obtain for hili a loan of $40,000 on stook. "1 have boeen jiust foolish enough all my life," cout tinued Mr. Wanamal.er, "to dli tlloOse things, anti 1 got money on tihe stook andl gave it to hin a considerable timtO after ward. It was paid off by thle IluoiS es tate, and they got the stock back." Wana nmaker also ;iresented the eommnlttoe with a letter from Luonas, dated t lay 23,, -1888, ii closing nmouey to ipay interest on tile loan. "iOn the other unused fivro blocks ,if stock." said Mr. WVanamaker, "tmy imnprnssion is that Lucas at first intended to iak for it larger lonn so isanod them. It was never used, however, as it couldl not have LIen with myv indorsement. I kunow of no other stock, but rememubeor that ten years ago, when securing control of the bank, he came to me nnd said he did not want peo ple to know who certain stock Lslonged to, and for the time Dplaced -sme in tu~,y iname. In regard to e,-rtifleate No. 450, wh-lih was transferred by Yird to Scudder and )llur itam, of Trenton, that is part of tue stock on which the lhan from the trust cos pany was secured and after the Lu0as ou- . tate got it back, it was very likely passed over to Yard again to raise money on." Wanamaker then again went over at some length the transaction in ]eading, in which Lucas was partner, and said when thl, set tlement was made that President Marsh ad mitted in the presence or three witnesses that the Luoas 'estate owed him $15,000. The fact that some of the certificates held nas collateral by Irvin and Roland were dated after Lucas' was due, he said, to ther fact that the broker would not handle them when in a dead man's name. In closing his testimony, Wanamakor read a letter from Comptroller Lacey and Assistant secretary Nettleton to show that he never inflcenced nor delayed for an instant the appointment of a receiver for the Keystone bank. AN OLD FEUD. Neighbors Engage in a Pitched Battle at Edlnboro. PITTrnuno, July 10.-A special from Erie, Pa., says: "Edinboro, sent of the Edinboro State German school, is the scene of great excitement to-night. News has just been received of a bloody battle between Suretts and Cobb families on one side, and Ander sons and McGahana on the other. Officials have to-day been serving warrants, and it is thought the vendetta will not be casried much further unless friends of the families meet. Some time ago F ank Anderson was arrested at the instance of Charles Surett for larceny, but the pronecution failed. Since then each party persistently shot and maimed each other's cattle. Warrants were sworn out, and Erie officers started to arrest the Andersons. Lnst night Frank Surett and Charles Cobb entered Ander son's premises, and Frank DoIlo and osel Audeeson and Sansar McGallan opened fire at long range. Fire was returned. The Andersons charged and Frank fell, shot through the breast. Am munition gave out and fists and knives were used. Cobbs' throat was cut from ear to ear but not deep enougn to reach tre jugular. All parties were more or lesa injured. Frank Anderson's recovery is doubtful. Officers arrested all varties on the charge of an attemnt to murder. Blood shed is feared when the parties are tried to morrow evening in Edinboro, as friends of each side are gathering. The parties are of good families. Last night's battle is the result of an old feud. GLASS BOTTLE BLOWERS. Contemplated Changes to lse Made at Their Next Convention. PITTsnrCno, July 10.-The glass bottle blowers of the United States and Canada have in contemplation certain changes in their rules and demands that will create a revolution in trade. The annual conven tion of the national trade assembly, com prising glass bottle blowers of the United States and Canadawill meet at St. Louis on the 13th inst. The American Manufacturer says: At the coming convention of the bot tle workers they will push claims made last year for the first time. Other important measures will be discussed. Among them being one admitting foreign blowers into the organization which virtually means foreigners shall be employed where there are American workmen. Proposed changes do not end here. Bottle workers will make a strong fight to out loose from the Knights of Labor and enter the American Federation of Labor combin ingr with the American Flint Glass workers. The Western Bottle Manufacturers' asso uiation has :uvested the wage committee with full power to act in conference with the wage committee of the American flint glass workers.

Flandsomne Plrses llung tp for the Speedy Ones-Water Abundant, Ilulldlngs New and Convenient. GREAT FAraS, July 10.-l-Spe p al.1--Lying between the Sun and Missouri rivers, but a short distance above the confluence of the former with the latter stream, and just two miles northwest from the .'ark hotel in this city is a large body of land as level and as smooth as the placid waters of llroadwater bay. h'ho most central and level portion of this beautiful vallev has been selected and purchased by the North Montana Fair asso ciation of Great Falls and by theon con verted Into the association grounds and race course and which when fully com pleted, equipped and ready for business will be second to no association track in the state or west. With the same untiring energy and enter prise and the determination not to be out donle that has characterized the Cataract city and her people from the time of its in fancy to the present day, the North Mlon tana Fair association have planned, pushed to the front and perfected the following most excellent programme for the three days' racing of its first annual meeting, commencing Monday, the 17th, and ending Wednesday, August 2).

TLhe North Montana Fair association's track lies immediately between the Great Falls & Canada and the Great Northern railroad tracks, about one-half a mile from the stockyards of the former and one hundred yards from the track of the other, thus offerine horsemen from the north, as well as from other points of the compass, every advantage and convenience in unloading and loading their stock at the grounds. The association's regulation track is of a light sunny soil, almost identically the same as that of Miles City, which under the management of Messrs. Robert Vaughan, D. H. Churchill and Julius Horst, the committee on buildings and im provements, has been so admirably graded and arranged that its drainage is perfect, and even after the hardest rain will in a few hours be in working order. The water supply is all that could be de sired, the water being forced from San river by the stationary engine of the Can ada & Great Falls railroad into a huge tank of the United States Wind Engine & Pump company's make, of a capacity of 25,000 gallons, and from whence it is disy tributed by small pipes through all por tions of the grounds. The improvements. consisting of the judges and grand stand, stables, pool room, saloon, testaurant and secretary's oflice, are all substantial build ing-, constructed of the very best Montana lumber, which, like her horses, is noted both far and near for its staying qualities and powers of endurance. The grand stand is 100 feet long by thirty wide and will seat 1,500 people, with a res taurant and secretary's office underneath, and an annex on the west side to be used as a kitchen. At the east end will be erected a pool room and saloon building seventy live by thirty feet. The stables consist of one hundred box stalls twelve by sixteen feet. Up to the present time fully $1S,000) has been expended and fully it,0t0 nmore will be required to put everything in perfect order. And horseilon from all sections of the country may rest assured that every preparation is being mado for their coming and the beat po.:,ibloe cutortainment for their stock. GREAT FALLS NEWS.
