VOL. XXXII-NO 180. HELENA. MONTANA. SUNDAY MORNING, AUGUST 2, 1891.-TWELVE PAGES PRICE PLVE CENTS IN THE KAISER'S KIND00M. Finanelal System of the Empire Shaken by the Deutsche Bank Frauds. W.illiam Urges Legislation to Les son'the Drink Evil, Whioh is Growing. .Alarming lInrease in the Number of Outl eides, Due to Liquor-Cure for Tuberoulosis. [Ceyrisht, 1891, New York Associated Pren.] BaBLiT, Aug. 1.-The frauds on the Deutsche bank, perpetrated by Clerk Franok and Broker Bohweiger, have ex cited the whole German financial wdrld to a degree unknown sines the embeazzlements of two directors of the Leipsio Disconto Gosselsehaft. The fullextent of the frauds on the Deutsche bank has not been dis closed. It is believed that future returns of forged papers will swell the total amount involved in the frauds to an enormous sum. Franok dealt largely in lottery speculations and carried on a general speculative game under the very noses of the bank directors for years with an adroitness suggesting that Sehweiger is right in his statement that Franck originated the frauds and used him as a tool. The bank has offered a re ward for Franok's capture. The imme diats effect of the swindles threatened for a moment to produce a grave financial crisis,. The position of several banks in volved in the South American collapse, and weakened through existing bourse embar rassments., is so delicate that any sudden strain may lead to a break-down. Luckily the press andi public accepted the state ments of reassuring character issued by various banks. The imperial yacht Hohenzollern, with Emperor William on board, touched at Drontheim to-day, homeward bound. All the party is in the best of health and are timed to arrive at Kiel on Wednesday. The emperor's proposed measure for the sup pression of publio drunkenness has become, under the manipulation of the ministers, merely a proposal that the landtag should increase the penalties imposed on drunkards. Ministers Herrfurth and Miquel and other concur in the belief that the publio would not tolerate active legislative interference with drink ing. The emperor thinks differently. A draft of the proposed bill was sent him and returned with suggestions concerning state supervision of the healthy qualities of teverages. Impressed with recent official statistics concerning the growth of criminal offenses and suicides arising from drink, the government has opened inqui y in re gard thereto, and is drawing evidence from hospital and other medical sources concern ing the increasibg use of potato spirits and other impure alcohols, and how far the use of these spirits may be regarded'as a lead ing factor in crime. Official returns of suicides in Berlin during the first fortnight of July shows a total of 147. The cause of this enormous self-destruc tion is attributed chiefly to drink. The emperor is the friend of good beer, but blames bad drink for the many of the vio lations of law throughout the empire, and more particularly in the great cities. A fresh decision of the Russian govern ment concerning its policy towards Jews debars the children of Hebrews not having the right of sojourn in in Russia, or residents of any Rusrean district. without permit, from admission to the middle and higher schools. 'I he Novo Vromya to-day, in an nouncing that this order will take effect at the begiuniun of the next scholastic year, praises the regulation as assisting to reduce the Jews to their natural social level. The influx of Jewish emigration into Germany s rapidly abating. lThis is partly owing to stricter official supervision. Prof. Dr.Max Schulter, of the Berlin uni versity, has a new cure for tuberculosis. lHe says he has experienced with it the last twelve years and is perfectly sure of the re sults. Prof. Schulter is a surgeon and con sequently his experiments have mostly been made in crscs of so-called surgical tuber culosis, such as affectations of joints, bones, glands. lupus, etc. He sayse, however, that he has treated successfully some cases of tuberculosis of the lungs. His remedy is '.uaniol," arn extract from boxwood, and also active a principle of creosote. He made numerous experiments upon animals and in 1880 commenced to treat human pa tients with "guaicol," which he at first ano plied in the form of an injection. Later on, as result of his experiences, he began to use the medicine internally in very small doses and in rare cases by inhala tion. He uses "guaicol," mostly in connec tion with iodoform injections, into the affected parts. He cites 100 cases treated by him, of which seventy were absolutely cured, sixteen improved, four died arid ten passed beyond his observation. The treat ment extended in each case over a long pe riod of time and allowed accurate observa tion of each patient ft om beginning to end. Prof. Schulter is confident of the accuracy of his method. In the meantime Prof. Koch is steadily working oil the improvement of his lymprh, aide.i by the gove rnnu nt, sihich feels bound to see him artive at asucrissful issue. Major \Vissm:n is paving a visit to his motlher at Eerfurt. Monday he will start on his return to east Afieri, whIore he will head another rexpedition into the interior.

BOYCOTT THE CHINESI. Public Meeting at Missuala Resolves to De So at Ones.. MLeXoULA. Aug. L-(-Speclal.]-A large and enthusiastlo citizens' meeting was held at the opera house this evening to dis cum the boycotting of the Chinese, and their explsisan from the city.. The meeting was opened by Henry 0. Stiff, who made a few remarks on the question, and was fol. lowed by James Robinson, Joseph A. Roof, Wm. Biekford and M. L. Crouch. The tenor of the speeches was that the system of Chinese immigration as con duoted the six companies is the worst of contract labors that it is as bad or worse than the slave labor of the south. Its results financially, morally and physically on white communities were presented in vigorous and strong language, but strictly legal means were advised. The way to ex pel Ite Chinese is not to patronize them, not o employ them, and not to have any business with them or those that employ them. The speakers were loudly applauded, and the meeting closed in favor of- strict boycott on all Chinese within the city limits. CHIEF 'THE WET." lean Visiting Friends Among the Nez Parees-On the Way Home. LrvrHGSTON, Aug. 1.-[Bpecial.]--A noted chief of the Crow Indians, named "The Wet," accompanied by four others of his tribe and two Nez Perce Indians, are in Livingston to-day on their way back to their agency from a visit to the Nez Perce Indians in Idabo. "The Wet" is a stalwart Indian and a brother of Plenty Cones, the head chief of the Crow tribe. He is a man of considerable intelligence and enterprise, and he has made considerable progress in adopting the ways of the whites, of whom he has always been a steadfast friend. His efforts in furthering the sale of the western part of the Crow reservation attracted the favorable notice of the commissioners and the United States Indian inspector present. Curley, the famous Indian scout and the only survivor of the Coster massacre is also in the pasty. The Indians visited a few old friends this afternoon, among whom was the deputy clerk of the court, J. A. Bailey. whom they had not seen for years. Through Mr. Bailey, Chief "The Wet" said he wanted THE INDENPENDENT to tell the peo ple that he was on his way home with twenty-five head of horses, the gift of the Nez Perces, whom he has been visiting. He said it would make his people glad to know this, and his friends in Billinegs would tell them. He inquired the names of t he two Indians killed on the railroad track near3Billings, and when told said simply that he knew them. The Indians are camped on the river near town, and will resume their journey to-morrow. They expect to arrive home in about four days. COod Field for Francis Murphy. IVxwOsTON. Aug. 1.- -[tpecial.1-Con siderable excitement pr mails here to-day over the report that the ghost of a woman who died in the county hospital about a week ago. and who was known about town as "Tlllie the Tramp," was seen last night wandering about the shack where she lived previous to her taking off and removal to the hospital. The spectre was first seen by one of the night police, who at once came up town and induced several other people to accompany him to the shack. They all report the same story about it walking around the shack muttering in an under tone. Upon their attempt to approach nearer than twent yor thirty feet it would suddenly disappear and again reappear at a greater distance away. Several persons who were present assert that the appear ance was identical with that of "Tillie the Tramp," and that the cloak and hat worn appeared the same as she was accustomed to wear. Prepared to Prove Alibis. BUTTrr, Aug. 1.-[Special. ]--Hickey, Kelly and Deeney, the men accused of the murder of the late W. J. Penrose, were ar raigned for plea to-day before Judge Me Murphy. To avoid the possibility of trouble, Judge McMurphy moved his court up to the court house. Each man was smiling and as he entered shook hands with friends who happened to be present. Thompson Campbell appeared for the de fendants, and Attorneys Haldorn and Baldwin for the state. The complaint was read and all pleaded not guilty. The pre liminary hearing was fixed for Aug. 10.

Clifford, of New York, arrived here last night, and to-day at a largely attended public meeting, laid before the citizens a proposition for starting the Spokane smel. ter, which has been completed nearly in year. Mr. Clifford proposed to deposit $h5,000 if the citizens would organize a company and deposit a like amount, the Spokane company to buy and furnish ores and the smelter company to reduce them, the profits to be divided equally betweeni the two companies. At the meeting of the citizeins it was uunnimuously resolved to ac cept Mr. Clifford's proposition. It is ex pected that the new company will be able to control a large she e of the ore from surrounding country now being sent to Montana town., 'i'.tiolulr and other points. Naved by a Iasso. Thos.

A Half Length Advantage in the stA Inoreased to Six Lengths. Sport at Butte Rather Tame-Floridla Cap tares the Trot, Beating Sliver Bow Two in Three. NEW YORK, Aug. 1.-The much talked of and long delayed match race between Pal sifer's horse Tenny and Dwyel's Long street was run at Morris park to-day and resulted in an easy victory for Longstreet by six lengths. Fully 25,000 people were present, many of whom had journeyed from all parts of the union and see it run and satisfy tihemselves as to the superior ani mal of the two. As a race it was hardly such a contest as many had hoped to see. Nevertheless it was a good contest and proved conclusively that the great swayback is no match for the Dwyer candidate. In betting Tenny opened nine to ten, while Longetreet could not be backed at even money. Public money then began to go on Tenny, forcing his price down to three to five, while Long street kept steadily rising until just before they went to the post, when six to five could be had against him. Tenny, with Pike Barnes in the saddle, was the first of the pair to show. Tenny looked in prime condition. Longstreet soon followed, with Hamilton up, but showed a disposition to shirk his work, which caused his admirers considerable uneasiness. Stones, clods of dirt, shouts, the waiving of arms, were all used in the endeavor to make him break, but once in motion his long sweeping stride carried him along in a way that meant vol umes to those whose hopes and dollars he was carrying. The race was for $5,000 a side, with $2,500 added, mile and one-quarter. The first break looked to be a good start, but Long street for some reason refused to go on and the flag failed to fall. In the next at temut he tried the same trick, but a good rousing from Hamilton got him in motion and the word was given with the son of Longfellow half a length in front. He soon made it a length and at the quarter it was two. In fact, every stride seemed to bring him further away. Seeing this, Barnes began to urge Tenny, and just as he breasted the hill he seemed to gain on the leader and as he did his backers grew wild with delight. Short-lived was their glee, however, for Longstreet soon began to draw away again, and at t ie end of the mile it was seen that he would win. ,Whip and spur as Barnes might, Tenny could not gain an inch for the rest of the journey, and a dozen jumps from the end he began to pull up. Hamilton saw this, and let up on Longstreet a trifle, still not enough to take any chances, and at the end was a winner by six lengths, in 2:07. The fractions were :25,, :50, 1:l7k, 1:42, and 2:071. Mike Dwyer was highly pleased. He said he would probably coange the winner's name to Rock Ledge, which is the title of his hotel prol erty in Florida. Tenny's owner was seen after the race, and said he was satisfied the race had been a true one and Longtsreet was a better horse than he had thought him. The time is not very good when looked at from a record stand point, yet the track was so dead dry that fast time was an impossibility. Among the he'viiest losers on the match was Bill Lov ell, whose books lost nearly $15,000. After an interview with G. T. Pulsifer the Monmouth Park Racing association has de cided to offer $5,000 added money to a sweepstakes, mile and one-quarter, pro vided Tenny and Longstreet both accept. The conditions of the race admit other starters. It is a sweepstakes, $250 each, with $5,000 added, of which $1,000 goes to second, weight for age. The race is an nounced for Saturday next at Morris park, but the conditions call for a good day and track, otherwise the race to be postponed. Tenny's owner has already accepted.

That Number of Pledges Taken and Blue Ribbons Donned. Francis Murphy has closed a very suc ceseful week of temperance work, about 1,000 having signed the pledge. Some of the men who have donned the blue ribbon are well known about the city and their friends feel proud of them. The committee composed of one member from eacii evangelical church, feel very well sat isfled over the results of Mr. Murphy's work and they will most likely arrange to have him remain here another week. The meetines at the International hotel and at St. Paul's, on Broadway, have beent well at tended each evening. The strong feature of Mr. Murphy's work is that he does not arouse the antagonism of the saloon element. He has as many friends among them as any other class. It is a familiar sight to see him enter a saloon with a min ister of the gospel and shake hands with the owner. It is in sudh ulaces that Mr. Murphy accomplishes effectual work. Hie says he has never received an unkind word from a saloon keeper in his life, and that they are as a rule good fellows. In these roso'ts the noted temperance advocate reaches many men who cannot be induced to enter a church to hear a temperance lecture. A meeting will be held in Ming's opera house at 3:30 p. m. to-day for men only, and at eight p. m. Mr. Murphy will make an other address at St. Paul's church. INGýRISOLL'S SECRETARY.

The two families never agreed and frequent quarrels between the woolen ot the house some time ago became so serius that Anderson and Baker took up the quarrel and often had heated disputes over the matter. 'the trouble became more serious every recurrence until each threat ensd the others life. The threats culminated to-night in one of the most thrilling duels and tragedies that ever occurred here. Ba ker and Anderson were attempting to ad. just their difficulties. Mrs Baker came to where they were talking and told her hus baud that Anderson in his (Baker's) ab sence had been behaving in an ungen tlemuanly sinnner to her, in having laughed sarcastically at her.

Negotiations for the Sale of the lRich Heea Group of Mines in Ileaver head County. GnEAT FALLC, Aug. 1.-[Special.1-The first train for Monarch, since July 13 left here Thursday. The bridges have all been put in more substauol condition than be fore and it is hoped there will be no more delays by washouts. Nearly 1i) carloads of freight, including mining machinery and railroad material for the extensions, have been in Great Falls awaiting shipment. The delay at being unable to receive this has caused delay to the miners and con tractors for whom it was intended. F. B. Kissling, formerly principal of the Great Falls schools, but who has secured the euperintendency of the White Sulphur Scrings schools, has gone to Iowa on a visit to his parents. Mr. Kissling is a successful teacher and has made many friends here. A party consisting of Mesdames E. G. Maclay. J. Boakwalter, E. Crutcher, Joe Conrad, W. A. Webster, Miss Pettit and Miss Alice Conrad, and Messrs. H. F. Col lett, E. P. Atkinkson, W. A. Webster, W. W. Morrow, Dr. Crutcher and C. M. Web ster have gone to the Highwood mountains on a fishing tour and to enjoy themselves in the pleasures of country life. The banks of Great Falls have to date handled nearly $500,00 for wool that has been marketed at this place and some of the smaller towns. This has been nearly all put into circulation and the effect of it is perceptibly felt in trade and business. Two Sisters of Providence, Sister Mary, of Missoula. and Sister Mary Julie, superior of the hospital at Benton, have been in Great Falls this week. The sisters are to establish a hospital here and came to look over the lots the Townsite company has offered them for that purpose, but no par ticular site was fixed upon. It is the inten tion of the order to put up a large three story brick building, commencing probably in the spring. John Ford, of the New York Press, and W. S. Murphy, of the American Economist, have been visiting Great Falls this week. 'they are two genial and courteous gentle men and are much taken up with western life. It is proposed to have a very enjoyable time here on the river during the races. A purse is to be raised here by the citizens for some good boat races, and a time on the water is anticipated. A number of young folks gathered at the residence of Mrs. Wiscott in honor of Miss Florence Sharpe, a bright and charming young lady of Oskosh, Wis. After supper music and dancing were enjoyed by the happy gathering. Much interest was taken in a game of base ball Wednesday evening between Irwin's and Newbold's teams at Gibson's park. The game was played with all the science and muscular exertion possible to put in it and was roundly cheered by the many spectators who gathered to witness the game. The ball bursted before the game was concluded, and neither party won the tame. The electric motor line will loon lay track on Central avenue to connect with the main line on Seventh street, thereby materially shortening the distance to the dam and Black Eagle falls. S. E. Atkinson, of Helena, is in town this week doing cashier duty at the Cascade bank, filline the place of his brother, who is on a vacation. Work has commenced on the repairing of the Hwitzo & Henderson block, which was so badly damaged by the fire Sunday.

The fountain being built by the city at the depot is now nearly completed. The basin is forty feet in diameter and nearly four foot high and is built of white stone. It is intended that this shall be the finest fountain in the northwest. Miss Della Dun, of Chicago, is visiting her mother and sister in this city. Mr. Henry MacLean Martin, of San Francisco, who has been visiting in this city for the last few weeks, returned to her home pesterday.
