SNO HNA, MONTANA TUEDAY MORNIN JULY 14nt,
VQL. XXXII.-NO 161. H NA. MONTANA. TUESDAY MORNING. JULY 14, 1891. PRICE FIVE CENTS WHY MRS, MILLER FAILED The History of the Rise and Fall of the Divided Skirt Business. The Inventor T ted Her Business to Others Who Badly Mis managed It. The lair Apostle of Dress Reform feo Wemen Deela~ee That she Is Still in the Flght to Win. Naw Yonu, July 18. - Mrs. Jannesu Miller, the fair apostle of the di vided skirt, has not given pa her tight for that mnuehdiseussed garment by any means, although it is an unquestioned fact that her enthusiastio efforts in its be half received a pronounced check when the sheriff closed up her Fifth avenue es tablishment a few Weeks ago to satisfy the claims of numerous creditors. A note of Inquiry directed to Mrs. Miller by the Evening Post correspondent brings the assurance from her that she is still in the Rood work and is going to stay there. The failure of the company of which she wax the head was brought about, she says, not on account of any lack of appreciation of the divided skirt and sundry olher in novations in women's dress cham pioned by her, but owing tc the management of her affair. by persons upon whom she was compelled to rely. For some months Mrs. Miller has been obliged to seek relief from the ocret of business and to trust the conduct of ber affairs in the keeping of persons hardly competent to achieve satisfactory results, When she was enabled to give her attention to them again she found them to hopelessl, tangled up that the moat feasible way of straightening them out appeared to be te Wind up teii business and begin all ovel pgain. Thises what she will do. It will take time, she seys, but when her new con cern does start up it will be upon a much mnore substantial basis than ever before. Tbe career of Mrs. Jenneps Miller and tle'livided skirt in New Yoer has been one of, interest. Mrs. Miller is a native of Bos top. and conceived the idea of introducing reforms in women's dress while a student at the Boston Conservatory, of Which she is h graduate. lhe did not begin her crusade against prevalent modes, however, until she! married Conrad Miller, who, ten years ago, wsu one of the leading merchants of Evans. ville,-Ind. Mr. Miller was a wealthy man, and after his talented wife had launched her prt projects and success seemed as eared he, gave up business to come with -her to New York. the field for operation here being much more promis. ing.: Mr. Miller went into Wall street'iad Mrs. Miller began to exploit the divided skirt upon extensiv9 seale. Junt about the time that everything was beginning to wore smoothly in the iffaire of both Mr. Milles got in on the wrong side of the market and, in the classic parlance of "the street," was "dumped." He lost nearly everthing he had. Thef with Mrs. Miller he turned his attention to the task 6f popularizing the garments which have beeh synonomous with her name for the last four years. For a year the resultseof heir efforts were not as satisfactory as they could wish, and the business was carried on in an obseure streetdin Harlem. After a while the enter prise leveloped to such an extent that a omonthly manazine called Dress, devoted to artistio clothing, physical qulture, of which Mrs. Miller's sister, Miss Mabel Jenness, is the leading exponent, and other matters of interest to *omen was started. This pub liesation was a small affair;at first, but it be came popular, and six months ago enjoyed a circulation of nearly 20,000, it it said, and was the most profitable part of the busi ness. In addition the company sold pat terns of all sorts of garments, made in the styles projected by Mrs. Miller, and the dainty silk divided skirts which gained Mrs. Miller the most celebrity, and combined under one head more than ten distinct de partments, each of which was devoted to the manufacture and sale of articles of women's dress and toilet. Some of the best known writers were engaged to con tribute to the magazine, and when, two years ago, Mrs. Miller moved her numerous enterprises from H.rlom down to a promi. nont location on Fifth avenue she seemed on the high road to Averiesting fame and great fortune. She employed more than a score of people, and besides keeping track of their doings made jn annual tour of the country lecturing upon the virtues of healthy and becoming clothing. In doing so she displayed more fine raiment than women in the ordinary walks of life had ever seen. A year ago she went over to England and created something of a sensa tion among the British dress reformers by displaying and explaining the garments she had introduced here. She was feted and received by the best people, and following her visit the divided skirt had an extensive sale on the other side. Shortly after her return Mr. Miller broke down from overwork and was compelled to seek relief from the burdens of her many enterprises and retire to a sanitarium in the interior of this state, where she still re mains. Her health is improving, she says, and she has already written the greater portion of a book upon artistic clothing which is shortly to be published by a lead Ine publisher in this city. The aff'airs of her company are now being disentangled and she expects to come forth again in a short time equipped'to resume the battle. Since the failure of the company Mrs. Miller has received many offers of assist. anoe from friends and admirers, but she has declined all of them, preferring to make her struggle alone. She is a woman of in finite resources and believes that she will be able to reoruit her fortunes without assist ance. In the meantime the nmaegazine will be discontinued for the present. The gar ments introduced by Mrs. Miller will be hb dled by a western firm which has been mhnufacturing them for some months past. Advice to Plain Women. If all plain women displayed as much common sense in settling the question of personal appearance at a certain bright New York girl, there would be lees repining and more agreeable companions among them. Her argument and conclusion are both eminently satisfaotory. She says that, singly and collectively, each physical defect was taken under careful coneidelation, and every legitimate means employed to lesson her homely and enhance her attractive fea tures. To this matter trule, thought, pa tienae and ingenuity were devoted, aud a measure of success was attaineJ. But, after once giving the best taste and labor to her toilet, the whole subject was promptly dis missed, and she absolutely declined to fret or even think about her looks.-Illustratsd American.

Losowx, July 18.-The Times tq-day in a long article on the World's fair, reviews the growth.and importance of Chioago, and says it is not doubtea that the exhibition will in many respects surpass all those previously held. The paper says it is de oided that the royal commission to repre sent Great Britain at the World's fair will be composed of the council of the society of arts, which carries with it the prestige of having the prince of Wales ae its president, and Sir Richard Webster, attornpy general, as its chairman. The royal commission has received a grant of $125,000, which is less in amount then any previous grant made for similar purposes.. The council is confident of having sufficient funds to in sure the suodess of the British exhibit. In an interview on the subject of the government's grant, Sir Henry Wood, sec retary of the society op arts, and conses quently secretary of the r oyal commission for the World's fair, said the grant was expected solely to cover the expenses of the commission. British merchants, he added, who were represented at the recent P4ris exposition spent $75f0,000 in exhibiting, and there was every teaton to supapose, consid. ering the trade between Great Britain and the United States, that British exhibitors who will be rep esented at Chicago in 1893 will contribute at least $1,000,000 towards the expense of the exhibit. AFFAIRS IN HAYTI. Late News Brought by the Steamer Athos From There. Nzw YoaR, July 18.-The Atlas line mail steamer Athos, from Port Limon, arrived this afternoon. Late in June the Athos landed in Haytai and according to her ofi cers it was learned that Fred Douglas, United States minister to Hayti, had left his post at Port An Prince because the Haytien government did not care to recog nize a representative of the United States, and it was rather the desire of the "blnack republic" to break off intercourse with this country. The Haytien government, it is said, fears the United States, and in order to avoid interference of any kind from this government will sao rifice social intercourse with it. Legitirne was still at Kingston and growing in favor. The Haytiens prefer him to Hippolyto and only await his word to institute another re volt. The Athos also brought news of the failure of the extensive fruit importing cor poration known as the Baltimore Fruit company.

Suddenly a man, wild-eyed and making insane gestures, forced his way through the crowd, rushed to the carriage and fired a pistol at Carnot. shouting: "I'll prove that there are more bnstiles to be de molished."

Blew Open a Great Big Safe Door That Had Not Been Looked. Soared Away Without Any Booty--lleo triolty IA Mining at Nelhart,--all road Traffic Delayed. MIssouLA, July 13.-I[fpecial.]-Safe blowers have reached the city. About 12 o'clock last night the fruit store of J. H. Fussy, was entered from the rear. Fred Ehlers, who sleeps in the saloon next door, heard them, but supposed the noise was made by the boy who sleevs in the rear of Fussy's store, but who, on this one night, slept at Fussy's residence. The burglars operated by drilling through the casing of the safe door into the cement and loading the hole with giant powder. some of which was left unused on top of the safe. It seems to have taken four hours for them to do this. 'The explosion was heard a block away and tore the door from its hinges, scattering the cement over the floor. One of them, after the explosion, looked through the window of Ehler's room, and when Ehlers got up drew his revolver. called to his conipanion and retreated. It was light enough to see that he was a big broad-shouldered fellow, of dark complex ion and smooth face. The job was very crude. Mr. Fussy havine forgot the cow bination was in the habit of leaving the outer doors unlocked and the men only needed to turn the handles to have opened them. The burglars must have come back, as they drilled through the inner door, but were again scared off end did not get the money, about $100, which was in the safe. The motion for a new trial in the case of Calvin and Smith, who were convicted of murder in the second degree, for the kill ing of Tretwell, at Cory Bros.' camp, was overruled this morning, and the men we;e each sentenced to ten years in the peniten tiary.

To Be Tried at Nelhart--andsllde Inter rupts Traffic. GREAT FALLS, July 13.-[Special.l-The Queen of theHille Mining comen,y, one of the richest and best developed mines of Noihart, is to enter intoa new feature to more rapidly and cheaply extract ore- from its mines. This is to be done by means of electricity, which has been tried on a small scale in the mines of Colorado and a few other regions with asuocess. The Thompson-Houston company has just completed electrical ma chinery for use in mines that is thought will revolutionize deep quartz moining. Their agent, W. S. Pierce, who has been in this city for some time, has concluded with the company a contract by which the new machinery is to be used in the mines. The machinery is to consist of powerful drivers" which may be used in any. position and pumps and hoists. The machinery is to be run by electricity, which it will rennuie a 300-horse power en gine to generate. Themachine will be here in a few months, or as soon as the railroad is completed to Neihart. This new venture is causing much interest in mining circles in other extensive mine owners in the Nei hart region. Traffic on the Monarch branch of the Great Northern has again been brought to a standstill by the heavy rains of the past few da s. The first obstruction was a large landslide that covered the track to a con siderable depth, which occurred about fif teen miles this side of Monarch.

Van Boron, carrying seventy-five pounds, ran a mile and 100 yards in 1:45, breaking the long-standing record of 1:45j,.

He may wear a very gorgeous blazer, and he may talk athletics in the afternoon and sentiment at night, but he is off for a va cation. Won't you just remember that? You are a pretty girl, and a bright girl. and he likes to laugh and talk with you, take you out rowing, teach you to play tennis, and at night sit on the veranda and tell you how a moan really can love. All of this is delightful. But will you please be good enough to remember that love worth having does not come in a week or a month, and that in his watch-case there may be the face of a girl whom he loves with all his hean t, and whom lie thinks about every niight before he closes his eyes. You are just pert of his vacation; and won't you be wise enough to make him a part of yours? If, when his vacation is ove', he should come to your home, what was merely a summer acquaint:ance may ripen into a friendship. Well, that's an other thing. But just for the sunshiny time don't allow yourself to think too munch about what the summer young man says or does. Tihe Cause of the HTog. ST.

Dr. Dedolph, who is now in St. Paul, says: "The main purpose of my journey to this country concerns the very important ques tion of the abolition of the present restrio tion upon American hog products in Euro yean markets. The law in reference to microscopic examinations, as I found in use here, is satisfactory, and if they con tinue to exeonte the law in the same manner in which it is now being observed, the time is not very distant when, in the opinion of experts, the restriction policy will be abandoned and American pork be free to enter German and other foreign markets."

By Order of Judge MoHatton, of the Silver Bow Dietitot Court. Contempt of Court Is Alleged in a Publl cation tIn the Helena Journal of July 7. BUTTrr, July 13.-[Special.]--This after noon an order was issued by Judge MoHnt ton summing the editors of the Helena Journal to appear before him on Saturday next to show cause why they should not be punished for contempt of court. Under Sheriff Gallagher left for l1,lena this af ternoon to arrest the staff of that paper. Thi warrant of arrest allows the defend ants to be bailed in the sum of $1,00)0. Supporting the action is an affidavit filed by Judge MeHlatton, setting forth the fact the Davis will case is now pending in his court, and was at the time a certain article published in the Helena Journal of July 7. It is asserted further that the defend ants were responsible for the publi cation of that article, and that the charges therein were false and con temptuous. The article on which the ar rest for contempt is based was a reported conversation with an old Montanian and was headed "Why There's Prejudice." The order issued by Judge Mcllatton to-day is as follows: In the Second judicial district court, of the state of Montana, in and for Silver Bow county, in department No. 1. The state of Montana vs. George E. Boos, McKnight, whose first name is unknown, and John Doe, whose real name is unknown, the state of Montana to the sheriff of Silver Bow county-Greeting: W'hereas, The above named defendant, George E. Boos, is business manager, and McKnight, whose first name is unknown, is the editor, and John Doe, whose true name is unknown, is the local or city editor of the Helena Journal, a newspaper of general circulation published at the city of Helena, in the state of Montana, and, Whereas, There was at a former term of this court, a certain cause pending therein, in department 1 thereof, before John J. MllHatton, judge thereof, and known ar the "Davis will case." and involving the problte of an alleged will of A. J. Davis, deceased, wherein John A. Davis is the pro ponent and Henry A. Itoot and Maria Cum ming are contestants, and Whereas, As it further appears that the said George E. Boos, McKnight, and John Doe, did, on the 7th day of July, 1891, and while said cause or matter was still depend, iug and standing for trial in said depart. mient of said court before said judge, pub lithed and uttered in said Helena Journal a newspaper of general circulation, anc with which they were connected and en gaged as manager, editor and city editor, as above stated, the following language and statement concerning the matter and said court and judge, to-wit: WHY THERE IS PREJUDICnE. An old Montanian who is very familiar with all the ins and outs of the Davis will ease, was discussing yesterday the subject of the change of vanue asked in this cele brated case when le said: "Prejudice? Why, of course there is prejudice. The money involved in this case has turned the head of every man, woman and child in Sil ver Bow county. Ieptubl:cans and democrats iare sworn allies and iriends in all that per tains to keeping the eslate in the hands of the Butte parties; and they stood together for the re-election of Judge Meolatton solely because they knew that he could never be won over to any othoe view of the will than the Butte view. This was why no -Republicman nomination was made, and why Moltattoin was so readily adopted as the candidate and elected by so pleasing a vote. I tell you there is money enough in this business to corrupt every a corruptible maln in the state, and it has caused a deadly bias in the mintis of some men who could not be bou;ght with money - t all. There are not more than one or two Scases to-day before the courts of this coun try in which the stake involved is so great. -Nothing like a fair trial can ever be had in Slr vlvr lcw county, as neither a judge nor a i jury could be obtained there that would f render a decision in accordance with the 3 evidence. Therefore, unless a cbhanbe of venue is granted thei jig is tip for the con testants of the will." And, Whereas, Said newspaper is circu lated in Butte City, Montana, where said court is held and is now sitting, and where the judge thereof resides. and said newspa per and the matter therein uttered and pub lished has come under the observation of i said court and judge and reflects upon. the judicial character and honesty of said court and judge in said matter, and is disrespect ful and intended to cast odium uln i said court ond judge, and bring them into dis re ute, and an iafidtvit to that effect hais been tiled herein: now, Therefore, You are hereby comiuanded forthwith to attach the bodies of the altoe snamed George E. Bioos, nmatnger; MeKnighit, editot, tand John loc. whose true niame is unkinown, city or local editor, of thie Holeuo nil Joarnal, end have ttheis before our saidl court at ten o'olock a. mi.. on July 18.

After Fifteen Years' Litigation the salt Finally Decided. VE"sAILLsn, Ky., July 18.-The famous Meuibben-Bedford bull calf suit has been decided. the verdict being for $9,000 in favor of the Megibben heirs. The case has been in the courts fifteen years, and a full history in detail would make most interest ing reading. The beginning of the legal e uabble dates back to about the year 1874, when Thomas J. Megibben, of Harrison county, and Edwin 0. Bedford, of Bourbon county, became joint owners of a Jersey cow. This cow produced a bull that was oceidered very valuable. At that time Jerseys were selling at fictitious values, and in March, 1873, Megibben bought Bed ford's interest in the calf for $9,(i000 on war rnanty to be a good breeder. When the bull reached maturity it proved to be worthless, and Megibben asked for the reton of his money. Bedford declined to do this. Me gibben, in turn, filed a petition in the Bourbon circuit court Oct. 4, 1876, asking revision of the contract, return of $9,000, damages. This petition was dismissed without prejudice at the October term of court. The same anit was then iled Oct. 2, 1876, in the lourhrn court of common pleas. There -were "hung" juries at its trial in that court at the March teim, 1877, and the special October term of the same veer. A change of venue was granted on Megib ben's motion to .eoott county, March 16, 1878. There was no trial in Scott county, but a change of venue was gra ted on Bed ford's motion to Woodford county, July 15, 1878. The case was finally tried before the Juno term of the Woodford court of common pleas in 1879. The trial lasted for several days and created intense inters at through out the stelte, the ease having become fa monu by that time. At this trial a verdict for Megllben for $10,000 was rendered. A motion for a new trial was overruled and the case wanetaken to the court of appeals, where it lay for nearly twelve years, until November, 1890, when the court reversed the judgment on account of error in the in structions given by the Woodford court of common pleae. At the January term. 1891, of the Wood ford court of common pleas, Judge Julian ordered Mogibbeun' administrators to pay into court the money, with interest, whica Bedford b id paid Meglbben under the er ronoous judgment, and on June 8, 1891, Megibbenm's administrators paid to J. 0. Bailey, clerk of the court, $17,558, which is now on deposit awaiting the order of the courts. SMOKE CONSU;MEIL INVENTED. It Will Be OperRted Upon an Entirely New Principle. A curious invention hasrbeen made by an engineer in Russia named A. Clausen. It is a smoke burner which is claimed to con same every particle of coal, even the worst soft coal, and it is based on a principle which is the direct opposition' of the one that has been held for years to be the only one by which a complete smoke consumer could be constructed. It has been held that the cause why so much carbon escaped in the ordinary furnace in the form of smoke. causing at once an enormous waste of material and a pollution of the, atmos phere, was that an insufficient supply of air was admitted, so that there was not enough oxygen to burn all the carbon. Smoke burners have been con structed with a view of admitting as much air as possible and passing it through the fuel, where it would come in contact with the coal. In this way smoke consumers have been constructed that did their work toler ably well. Mr. Ciausen, however, started to solve the problem by first analyzing the matter that escaped through the smokestack, and claims to have found that a large part of it con sisted of free oxygen. He concluded that the fault lay not with a lack of air, but, on the contrary, with too large a supply of it. lie reduced the amount of air admitted to the furnace until he came to a point where he admitted air only through two little holes of the diameter of an ordinary lead pencil. When he attained this, he claims the com bustion of coal was complete. Reports come from Paris and Lonuon indicating that experiments on a small scale have been made with the new invention and have proved remarkably successful. OUR WHEAT FIELDS. Now the Subject of Much Solieltude lt Europe. WASHINoroN, July 13.--Report on haivest prospects in France and Europe has been received at the state department from Com mercial Agent Griffin, of Linioges, France, of the National Millers' association. The report says the issued estimate shows the yield of wheat for 1891 to be 41 per cent. less than the harvest of 18:0. Itussia, Tunis, Egypt, Roumania and some Danub ian provinces have a fair harvest. In Hungary it will be below the average, this year. Estimates given by the millers' report says: The optimistic, in their de sire to create the impression that there is a better supply than really exists, have done so with a ipurpose-they want to buy grain as cheaply as possible in those countries that have of their abundance to export. In conclusion the report says that not only France, but all Europe, is looking longingly to the wheat fields of the United States. Discredits the Report. WAsiIIuorON. July 13.-Acting Secretary of State Wharton regards the reports brought by the steamner from Hayti that Minister Douglas left Port nu Prince be cause the Haytten government desired to ble ak ofi intercourse with this country as a pure invention, and says there is no reason to boelieve any such condition of affairs exist in ilavti. Minister Douglas, when shown the tele grami to-night, said that to his personatl kiniowledge the liaytien government did not wi-h to break oil intercourse with the 'Inited states, nor did he believe that the government was dissatisfied with him as minister. Her Voice lroke the Lamtp Shade. Mrs. Edmund tRussell, the apostle of atheties, has a voice which would break a lamp shade. this remark is not meant to be imipolite, and it ought to be true, for the lady herself is authority for the statement, says the l)etroit Free l'ross. "It was in BIoaton," she said, "Iwas talk ing with ai famuous voice teacher about tone i.nd vibrationm, and we both sounded a ouer taiu note t i unison. We must have hit the exact unit of vibration of an e.uhth-inch shade, for near where we were standing the c.ystal globe about a gas jet quivered and sttutipped. We looked it and a crack ran quito around it. The sound had brokenl it." 'this is rather an unusual incident, cer tainly, but the principal is familiar enough. A dog trottin. across a bridge can break it down if he happens to hit the unit of vibra tion, which, of course, differs with the length of the bridge. savnJoes Ilecoulnlng Troublesoume.
