PRICE FIVE C FROM ALL OVER MONTAHI Billings Adopts Vigorous Means to Rid the Town of the Tramps. Interesting Budget of News From Great Falls and Other Points. ]Eallspell Happenings-Killed by Her Horse Iunning Away-Ingersoll on bwlss Independence, BzLLn.os, Aug. 2.--[Speial.]-In view of the recent outrages of tramps here a num ber of citizens organized a "tramp round up" Thursday night and dividing into de tachments shortly after dark made the round of all the vacant buildings, lumber yards and other known lodging places of the genius tramp. By 10:30 seventeen hard looking citizens were gathered in and as corted to the fire-hall, where they were ex amined, and by the committee pronounced as unworthy of Billings hospitality. They were then escorted to a box car, to which the yard engine was attached, and speedily whirled away across the river to the Crow reservation with orders to move towards the rising sun, and never to be seen in Billings agaiq. The proceeding was a unique one, and a number of Boston wool-buyers, who were here, were greatly impressed with the Billing's method of reducing the t:amp nuisance. The county commissioners will shortly issue $59,000 in bonds to pay all outstand ing warrants of Yellowstone county, and will start in to pay cash for their warrants in future. The bonded indebtedness of the county is already $91,500, bearing interest at seven per cent. The new bonds will bear six par cent. interest. An old historic landmark, well known to travelers up and down tie Yollowstone, was removed by fire Thursday night, when the house of Thomas McGill, at Huntley, was burned down. The building was erected shortly after the Custer massacre, and was the stoppingrplae for travelers before the railroad era, long before Billings was thought of. The amount of wool shipped from here so far is about 2,0`)0.000 pounds. Buyers have been very active, and most of the wool has been sold at prices varying from 17 to 19% cents per pound. Sam Smith, who was charged with shoot ing at Road Supervisor Church, was held for trial in $6,000 bonds. Smith Broas., of the Upper Musselshell, sold about 7,000 mutton sheep here this week, the price being $3.50 for wethers and $3.25 for ewes. GREAT FALLS. Mineral Wool From Ithe Union Smelter Football Challenge. etc. GREAT FALLS, Aug. 2.-[.Special.]-Prof. O. C. Mortson, the mineralogist, yesterday exhibited some fine samlles of mineral wool. The wool was made from the slag of the ores smelted at the Union smelter of this city, and is pronounced of the best quality by experts. It is an extensively used article in the buildine t ades and in the packing of costly machinery and goods., as it is absolutely fireproof and almost in destructible. The wool is brown in color, silken and soft, and presents a very beauti ful appearance. Heretofore the Bessemer steel manufacturers of Pennsylvania have almost monopolized the trade in mineral wool in this country, the supply being ob tained ,during the process of converting the molten iron into steel by oxidation. It is to be hoped that the discovery made at the Union smelter will result in ultimately working the entire slag output for a supply of mineral wool as it will be an important and profitable industry for Great Falls. Capt. J. D. Newbuild, of the local foot ball club, has challenged the Helena club. The home club offer to play the Queen City kickers within four weeks for any sum from $50 to $200 a side. They are anxious to ar range a match and will post a forfeit any time the Helena boys signify their wiiling ness to accept this challenge. The Great Falls club is a strong one, having played a tie with the noted Lithbridge team. They feel abundantly able to out kick any team in the state and there is plenty of Great Falls money to back them. The bar and restaurant privileges of the North Montana Fair association for this year were auctioned off at the Park hotel last evening. The bar privileges were bid in by A. M. Lambert for $890, and the restaurant and ice cream franchise was sold to Judd Bros. for $120. A man named Charles Mellen, employed on the new First National Bank block, met with a painful accident yesterday. While bursting rock, a huge stone slipped and fell upon his right foot badly crushing the toes. He was taken to the hospital and his injury dressed. Only about one-third of the wool-clip has been brought in for shipment so far this season, and yes there has been 1,412,338 pounds received at the Great Northern freight depot. The wool is of good quality, linguoarly free from dirt and finds a ready sale at 18 and 20 cents. IKALISPELL NEWS. Activity In the New Filathe:sd Town Buildings in ('ourse of Erection.

A Respectable Man and a Chldago Bur glar Sald to lie the Same. CntcAao, Aug. 2.-Louis Leitzenberger, a relative of the late Vice-President lien drictks, was arrested last night by officers who were looking for Tommy Morgan, a Chicago burglar. The arrest seems to have proved the truth of an apparently incredi ble report that Mo:gan and Lsitzenberger were one and the same person. The pris oner was shot July 14, while attempting to escape from a residence on Grand boule vard, which he was in the act of looting. The wound was not dangerous, and after several days he managed to soeepe from the hospital where he had been taken by the police. After this queer rumors of his identity became current. Advices from Indianapolis were that Leitzenberger was at one tmne wealthy, and commanded con siderable social influence. The search for the mysterious burglar was kept up until last night, when the man with a dual life was captured. On his person was found a number of tools, which he is said to have used in hoasebreakiug. WHERE itE WAS WELCOME. A Place That HBelped Columbus To Be Hteprodueed at C'hicago.

[HBEE CORNERED FIGHT Blitter Political Struggle in Utah Which Ends With To day's Election. .iberals Charging the Old Parties With Working for the Mormons. A Claim That the Church of Latter Day Saints Is as Active as It Ever Was. OGmEN, Utah, Aug. 2.-The three cornered ight which has been waged in Utah with trest bitterness will be decided by to-mor row's election. The most striking feature f the campaign is the sudden revival of the liberal or gentile party. It had been suppressed; in fact, it had been promised by many influential liberals that if the mor mons would disband as a political organi iztion and enter the national parties the liberal party would follow suit. But the result is disappointing, After watching for months the "educational campaign" which the democrats and republicans have been carrying on in every part of the terri tory the liberals have formally repudiated the new movement as a mormon trick. They declare that the result of the movement will be an effort to secure statehood for Utah at the next session of congress. They claim that Utah is not ready for statehood, and that the Mormon church is too danger ons a power to be entrusted with the con trol of a new state. Under United States control the laws are impartially and un sparingly administered, but if statehood comes, with mormon sheriffs, judges and prosecuting attorneys, they claim that all the laws against polygamy will become in operative. Liberals who have gone into the new movement charge their former allies with bad faith. They say, "For years we have been demanding that the mormon church should go out politics, and now that it has done so we ought to accept the act as done in good faith." The liberals retort that the republicans and democrats are only cats' paws to rake the Mormon chestnuts out of the fire; that the campaign of both parties is being manipulated from the office of the president of the Mormon church. They claim that certain members of the church have been "set aside" to be republicans, end others to be democrats, for the ocuas sion. They tell stories of mormon bishops presiding at a democratic rally. and the next night assisting in the organization of a rerublican club. The platforms of the liberals all aver that statehood should never be given to Utah until the gentiles clearly outnumber the mormons; that they are republicans, democrats, prohibitionists and greenback cre in national politics, but for the present agreeo.to sink all such distinctions and work together for the growth of American ism in Utah: that the questions of tariff, reciprocity and state's rights are of little interest to the people of Utah when com pared t, the local issue, the control of po litical affairs by the mormon church. The electidn to be held to-morrow is for onunty officers and members of the legis lature. The liberals have everywhere nIm inated gentiles, but the republican and demrnocratic tickets, especially in Salt Lake and Ogden, are about equally divided be tween mormons and gentiles. In both cities ealch of the three ,arrties has ia daily paper as its organ. While the fight is a three-cornered one there is a very manifest sympathy between the national parties which are giving most of their attention to the liberals. The latter aver that there will be such a trading of candidates that a solid mormon delegation will be chosen. A BI(G PURtSE. Garfield Park Managers Arranging for a Big Racing Event.

DETROIT, Aug. 1.-All things considered, there seems to be every reason to believe that the Silver encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic will be just what has been prophesied and intended, the greatest gathering of veterans since the grand re view at the national capital at the close of the war in 186t5. The grand army is now at the zenith of its glory. It has grown gradually to its present dimensions and in a few years will come the time when the number of recruits can no longer equal the number of comrades mustered out, and the twenty-fifth national encampment is likely to go down to posterity as the banner en campment in the history of the organiza tion. A Grand Army Meleorial. OnicAno, Aug. 2,-The hotels of this city are swarmed to-day with members of the Grand Army of the Republic en route to Detroit. Ex-Gov. Oglesby was among them. Gov.

"and the memorial hall at Decatur is intended to Ie used to keep the momtentos of the war and the evidences of the work of the (rand Army of the Republic. The cost of the building will be about $2150,d0) and it will require a large sum to maintain the insti tion. The funds are to be raised by volun tary contributions purely. The ways and means will be cousiderea at the coaing en campment." aCharged With D)rowning a Iloy.

SUNDAY MUST 1E O11IMltVE)D. llientee of a Iecislon a Ifederal Judge in the Oaus of Adventist King. Mamyrns, Tenn., Aug. 2.-United States District Judge Hammond has banded down his decision in the now famous case of It. M. King, the seventh day adventist, who was convicted a year ago of Sabbath breaking by plowing on Sunday. The state supreme court affirmed the sentence and then the adventists and the national seculat association took up the case, en gaging Don Dickinson as counsel to argue it before the federal court. By Judge iarm mond's decision defendant is remanded back to custody of the sheriff to serve his sentence. Decision is based nrot so much on the constitutionality of the Sabbath clause as upon the fact that King was convicted under due proe js of the Tennessee law, and that it is nbt in the province of the federal court to review the case. Judge Hammond roles, however, that if man has set Sunday apart In due form by his law for rest, it must be observed as man's law, if not as God's law. A NOTED ENACTMENT, The Illinois Law Against Allen Land Owners to Be Tested. CtrcAoo, Aug. 2.-Attorney Jas. Goggin states that he has been retained by the Ca nadiai. relatives of millionaire John L. Dubreil, of this city, to test the constitu tlonality of the celebrated Illinois statute, which was enacted in 1887 to rid the state of alien landlords, particularly Scully, the Irish capitalist, who had introduced into Illinois all of the '"rack rent" usages of Ireland. Dubreilwas an American citi zen, but his nephew and niece, the contest ants, are not, and the widow of the dead millionaire seeks to deprive them of their heirship by pleading the alien land act as the basis for her action. This case will be the firBt test of ia noted enactment, and the result will affect the tenure of many farms, besides possibly cutting a considera ble figure in politics on account of the prominence given the subject of alien own ership in the Farmers' allianc', platform.

THIL KILLINE O1 BII~Lt. ). C(. Butler Takes Exceptlons to Mr. Irea nan's Version of It. To Tan InDai'xamnNr: Referring to an article of July 80, purporting to be an inter view with W. J. Brennan, of the law firm of Penry, Parcell & Brennan, that gentle man was represented as having made ser eral statements in reference to the killing of John Butler at Despersville, which were entirely contrary to statements made to me by him the day before. From your account it appears that Biutler and the man Whit ten were in partnership, when the fact is that they have never had any partnership relations. Mr. Brennan says Butler had threatened to kill Whitten, and that Mrs. Butler found Mrs. Whitten, with whom she was quite intimate, and warned her of her husband's danger: that the two men inet on the street; that Whitten raised his gun and fired, and that the people of Demners villa look upon it as a cae of self-defense. But the fact is, that from the beat authority Butler made no threats but had had a dispute with Whitten aboat the amount of some money due him, and began drinking, whereupon Mrs. Butler called on Mrs. Whitten, this being the first time she had ever seen her, for the purpose of asking her to have her husband bring John home, supposing them to be friends, never having imagined that Butler and Whitten were quarreling, and for the first time she learned from Mrs. Whitten that her husband and Jqhn were having some trouble, and shot tly rfter this Butler was shot in a saloon, the ball going through his heart and into an ice-box, from which it hassince been taken; Whitten coming in from the street and shooting Butler while he stood at the bar. And as to whether the people of Demersville look upon it as a case of self-defense I beg to refer you to your issue of the 81st, In which, according to your special correspon dence, it appears that "the sentiment at Demersville is that the ease is a cold blooded murder." I ask you to uublish this simply to call the attention of Mr. Brennan to the fact that he has made a series of gross misrepre sentations, which I trust he will have the courtesy to retract. D. C. IBUTLa, Helena, August 2. 1891. FOR THE WORLl)'S FAIR. Meeting of the State Commissioners Un der the Call of the Governor. To-day is the time appointed for the meeting of the state World's Fair commis. sioners who represent the different counties in Montana. They were notified about a month ago by Gov. Toole to come to Hele na on August 3, for the purpose of organiz ing and formulating some plans for their guidance. It is probable that there will not be a quorum present to-day but Governor Tools thinks there will be a good represen tation on hand by to-morrow. A. K. Yerkes, of Bozeman. representing Gallatin county, was the first commissioners to put in an appearance. He arrived yesterday after noon and is staying at The Helenn. He ex pected George M. Hays, of Billings, who represents Yellowstone county, to arrive yesterday, but the gentleman was delayed. Hon. W. M. Bickford, of Missoula county, was also expected last night. David G. Br owne, commissioner from Choteau county, is at The Helena. There is considerable work before the commissioners, and their session will prob ably take no a wee':'s time. Each commiS-i sioner also has charge of the work of col lecting materials intended for exhibit from each county. As far as can be learned not much has been accomplished in this way, and the matter has been delayed until all the commissioners could get together and adopt some method of procedure. Coumnis sioner L. H. Hershfield, who has been in Chicago lately and looked the ground over. will attend the session of the state commis sioners and assist them in their work. NOT CENSUS TAKERS. A Canvass of thie Wards for the eletena Executive Comm littee. Secretary Muth, of the Helena Executive committee, will start his men out to-day to make a thorough canvass of every ward in the city for the purpose of ascertaining how many people can be accommodated during the session of the National Educa tional association next sumrmer.
