HIS LEAP FOR LIBERTH,
Edward Morgan Jumps Through a Car Window Near Blossburg and Escapes. Train Running at the Rate of Thirty-five Miles an. Hour. The Prisoner Was on His Way to Deer Lodge to Serve One Year for Grand Larceny. Sheriff Jefferis lost a prisoner yesterday morning near Blossburg while taking the man to Deer Lodge. It was a desperate leap from the train, which was running at the rate of about thirty-five miles an hour. Edward Morgan is the man who made the jump through a ear window with handcuffs on. He was convicted a few days ago in the district court of having stolen a set of harness from Ketchum & DeNoille. He was sentenced for one year. Yesterday morning the sheriff started with his pris oner tor Deer Lodge on a Northern Paciflo train. Morgan sat on the right side of the aisle and the sheriff on the left, where he could keep his eye on the prisoner. The train had just passed Blossburg, a small station a short distance west of Maulan tun nel, when Morgan asked permission to go to the water tank in the for ward part of the car for a drink. The conductor was in the same seat with Jefferis. Both men were facing the tank and could see every movement Morgan made. After laying down the cup he turned the knob on the door of the closet to enter. t'he sheriff remarked to the conductor just then that it would be a funny thing if Mor gan should attempt to jump through the coach window. He started up from the seat to follow Morgan. Just as he did so he saw the flying form of Morgan shoot down the railroad embankment. It took some time to stop the rapidly moving train, which was on a down grade. It ran nearly a mile away from the spot where Morgan made his dashing leap before it came to a standstill. As it slowly backed up the grade the passengers could see Morgan making his way up the side hill on Dog creek. He had a good start, and by the time the train had run back to the place Morgan had reached the tim ber and was out of sight. Sheriff Jefferis went up one side of the creek and a volun teer deputy searched on the opposite side but without success. Jefferis then went back to Blossburg in search of saddle horses to renew the chase. He could not get any, but a woodhauler who had a team near by offered to go after the prisoner as soon as he could get to his cabin and saddle a horse. Jeffe-is deputized three other men to assist and they all started off on the trail, the sheriff returning to Helena by the after noon train. Up to a late hour last night he had heard nothing from his deputies who were instructed to telegraph him from Blossburg if they caught Morgan. This is the first moan to escape from the sheriff who has had an experience of seven years in the builness, and he does not like it at all. 'Ihere is not a more careful of cer in the state than Mr. Jefferis, and the occurrence is one of those things that sometimes happens in spite of every pre caution. Morgan's success in making the leap from the moving train is accounted for when it is known that he is a railroader, and knows how to get off a train under such circum stances. At the point where he made the jump there is quite a slope of loose earth, into which he landed without injury. The sheriff thinks his deputies will catch Morgan before he can reach a point on the railroad. There is a chance that if he gets to the road he may receive assistance and get out of the country. Before leaving iloseburg the sheriff offered a re ward. Morgan hitas a villainous cast of countenance and looks like an old jail bird, He is a short. slim fellow, with dark close cut hair. He has a bulling forehead and turned un nose and ai cruel looking mouth. When Judae Hunt sentenced him the fellow laughed as if it were a good joke. His companion, who was arrested for stealing the set of harness, was ac quitted by the jury. Edgerton Case Up Again. The attorneys for Mr. and Mrs. Edgerton made long arguments yesterday before Judge Hunt in the district court. A short time ago Mrs. Edgerton's case was almost thrown out of court because of ia defective complaint. Her attorneys have filed an amended complaint which recit-e about the same story as heretofore published. Quarrying and Mining.

BROADWATEIR IN SEATTLE. How He Talks About Ithe City anil Slate When on a Trip, Co), C. A. BIroadwatr and his family, and Jndge William Chumasero with his family, of HIelcua; arrived at the Rainier hotel yea tosdiy and will start for Alaska this morn ing, says the Seattle Post-.Intelligncer of July 8. Col. ]iroadwater has long beeh one of the foremost men not only of Montana, but of the northwest. Born in Sit. Louis he started out at the age of 19 to see the world. "I wanted to explore the toclky mountain country and hunt bears and Indialns," said he, "so I went In for 'Pike's Peak or bast' in 18hM. Well, it was 'bust' with me. "Then I turned to Mexico for a year, but came back to Colorado, and then started with some others for Idaho. When we got down to the crossing of the iHnake river, at about where Pocatello is, I met a crowd of miners returning from the Boise exoite ment. The minee had not turnef out well, and I came back with them to Deer Lodge. That was in 18(12. " I hen the first strike was made at Ban nook. That was followed by the Virginia City strike, and that by the one at Last Chance gulch, now Helenn. I was in for what there was to be found in Montana, so 1 made the round and ended up in Helene, where I have since lived. I'm an enthus. inst about Montana," said he, "though I mout acknowledge that I have only good words for Seattle and the state of Wash ington. I belieie we have in Montana the greatest producing state in the union, con sidering our population, which is about 150.000. Our yearly output in metal is $50,000,000, nearly half of it copper. Our cattle bring us back $10,000,000, and the cost to us only that of rounding them up and shipping them. Then. too, our mutton and wool bring in $2,000,000, to any nothing of other sources of income. "The mining business, with the exception of the shutting down of the Anaconda mines, has never been better than now. There are hundreds and thousands of new mines being found-not new ones like the Anaconda, but mines employing from twenty to fifty mion. A lot of these swells our total output to the enormous sum I have mentioned. 'Ihen, too, improvements in the processes of mining and reducing ores increase our profits. "Of course every man in Montana is for free silver. I think the next house will press the free coinage bill without much diffi culty. The senate will make a fight, but probably pass it, but I am afraid the presi dent will veto. I know he would have vetoed the bill last year."

A number of members of the Helena Rod Rod and Gun club met at Bryan's gun store on Broadway last night to perfect ar rangements for the annual tournament. At first the dates were fixed for August but it was thought best to hold the meeting in September. The dates selected are Septem ber 10, 11 and 12. jhe members thought a larger attendance would be had if the time was fixed for the latter month. Two days will be devoted to shooting at artificial tar gets and the third day there will be a live bird contest. The committees appointed last night are as follows: Contribution-H. Barbour, S. H. Kennett, A. Harrity. Arrangement and programme-A. J. Fisk, A. K. Barbour, T. J. Cionin. 'The executive committee of the gun club will have charge of the tournament. Pro grammes will be ready for distribution in a short time. Miss Jarbeau and Her Pretty Girls. Miss Jarbeau, with her company of pretty girls and mirth-provoking comedians played to a good sized audience last night, although there was a circus in town. Jar bean scored a great hit when she came on in the third act to sing "It's the same thing over egain." She was dressed min grey silk tights and a gauze cloak. Beatrice Tate, one of the prettiest girls in the company, is a very clever dancer who attracts consid erable attention. The comedians are good and earned their salaries. There will be a matinee this afternoon, the engagement closing this evening. The next attraction at M1ing's will be Katie Em mett in the Waifs of New York. Thanks From the Fire Department. At the regular monthly meeting of the Helena Fire department the following reso lutions were unanimously adopted: Re solved, That a vote of thanksof the depart ment be and is hereby tendered to Messrs. Wallace & Thornburgh for their letter of appreciation and gift of $10, both being highly appreciated by the whole depart ment. Resolved, That a vote of thanks of the department be and is hereby tendered to the members of old No. 1 Engine com pany (disbanded) for the gift of the furni ture now in use at the department room. The McMahon Circus. The first circus of the season exhibited in Helena yesterday, the tent being filled at both performances, which would indicate that business was as good as the proprietor expected. A few of tl:e features were very good, most of them very ordinary, and a few of them very bad. The circus neither makes the pretensions or charges the prices of the big shows and should not be coml pared with them to its disadvantage. It is not up to its own standard, set last year. JOTTINGS ABOUT TOWN. A regular meeting of the B. P. O. Elks was held last night.

SCOILDING DOES NO GOOD.0, rhe Principle Followed by Francis Murphy, the Well Known Temperance Lecturer. Legislation, He Says, Will Not Cure the Sins of Man kind. The Doctrine ot Love and elndness, as Plreached by the ltedeemer, the Proper Remedy. Franeis Murphy, the well-known temper snce lecturer, is stopping at the Broad water with his wife. Mi. and Mrs. Murphy, it will be remembered, were in the wreck on the Northern Pacific road when the sleeper tumbled into the Yellowstone river. Mr. Murphy's nose was broken and his leg badly hurt. Mrs. Murphy was also copsid erably bruised. As soon as they were able they came on to Helena and will stop at the Broadwater while recovering from the con sequences of their shaking up. Mr. Murphy and his wife were on the way from Indian apolis to Spokane Falls when the accident happened, and after recuperating here will continue on west. The work of Mr. Murphy in the temper ance field covers a period of twenty-one years. He believes in the system of induc ing men to quit drinking, but not in legis lating to that end. "If legislation was to save humanity Moses would have been the Messiah," lie says. "The best evidence that it was not was the fact that after Moses onme Christ, who had to give up his life that the world might be saved. I do not believe in scolding people cut of their faults. The gospel of the world's re deemer is the sovereign remedy for all sine -kindness and love." Mr. Murphy's plan is to get people to sign the pledge, in which work he is assisted by his wife. Mrs. Mur phy, though not a public talker like her husband, has a persuasive manner which accomplishes a lot of work. 'they believe that'the number who break the pledge is very small compared with the many who sign it. Since January 1 Mr. Murphy has secured 50,000 signers to the temperance pledge in Indiana. Mr. Murphy proudly lays claim to the distinction of having in duced more people to sign the pledge in his twenty-one years than any man who ever engaged in the temperance work except Fa thor Matthew. On his journey he is con stantly running against people who recall the fact that he make them sign the pledge years ago. Mr. Murphy is a pleasant conversational ist, more particularly because in his treat ment of the temperance question he makes no bitter fight against the lionor sellers, "The saloon keeper is my brother," he says. "When men stop buying liquor he will stop selling it" 'hat announcement is in accordance with his rule "not to scold." Mr. Murphy is short and stout, with gray hair and mous tache and a kindly face that no doubt has great influence upon his hearers. Mrs. Murphy is a pleasant body, some years the iunior of her husband. Like him she has a kind smile and a pleasant face that go far in a temperance argument. Though she does not entertain tire same feeling toward the saloon element as her husband, she never speaks in harsh terms of those en gaged in that business. It has been sug gested that during their stay in Helena the city pastors get up a series of gospel tem perance meetings and have Mr. Murphy, with his wife, conduct them. There is no doubt of them accepting as soon as they feel sufficiently recovered from their acci dent to do so. They are getting along very finely now and are on the rapid road to complete recovery.
