IELENA TO WALLACE.
the Business Men's Excursion Will Take Place Next Wednes day, the 19th. President Parohen, of the Board of Trade, Will Attend to the Details. Harvest Exeuarlons to Montana Polnt- To AMi the Union Paoiflo-Great Northern Routo. The excursion tendered the representativi business men of Helena by President Oakei of the Northern Pacific railroad, to the Oceur d'Alene will start August 19. The fol lowing letter from Agent Edgar has beqn re ceived by President Parchen, o; the Boarc of Trade. "The management of the Northern Pa. eiio railroad takes great pleasure in tender. ing the business men of the city of Helena, through your honorable body, an excursioa to the Ccaur d'Alenes, and has decided upon the following programme: A special trait earrying the party will leave our passengei depot at Helena at seven a. m., Wednesday, August 19, running directly to Wallace, Idaho, reaching that place late in the after noon of the same day. Thursday, the 20th, will be spent in visiting the different min ing towns and mills in the Cceur d'Alene district. The train will leave Wallace on the re turn trip early Friday morning, the 21st, and will reach Helena the same day. We can accommodate 375 gentlemen. and have decided that no tickets will be required for the excursion, as conductors will be in structed to pass free all gentlemen present ing invitations to accompany the excursion. These invitations are to be issued by the Board of Trade, at its discretion, but notto exceed the number named." It is thought the excursion will be the most representative one which ever left Helena. Harvest Excursion to Montana Since the Atchison has decided to meet the Alton's rates and arrangements for har vest excursions, the lines via Omaha have concluded to run an additional excursion Sept. 15 to all points reached via Kansas City. This, of course, includes ooints in Colorado, Utah and Montana, and as this invades the territory of some of the North. western lines the Milwaukee has given no tice that it will also sell harvest excursion tickets Sept. 15 via St. Paul. The Rlock Is land people, however, are disgusted with the whole business, and will invoke the in terference of the Western Traffic associa tion to compel the Atchison, if possible. to refrain from putting into effect the one fare rates to Colorado points. Union Paclfic Syndicate. A director of the Union Pacific, who asked that his name be withheld, said the other day that it was true that a syndicate had been formed to look after the loans of the road. Several large banking houses had signified their willingness to co-operate with the syndicate. The earnings of the road would, during the next year, probably amount to $24,000,000, netting $5,000,000, avtilable for the payment of the floating debts. The action of the syndicate would bevery much like that of the Bank of En gland in the matter of the Baring Bros. complications, with the difference that the road would be able to hand over to the men who put up the money first class certifi cates. The Northern Pacific has decided to run two more harvest excursions, the dates be ing August 25 and September 29. The fare for round trip will be one and one-third single fares. Tickets will be sold to Wa dens, Minn., Garrison, Mont., and all points between. Limit of time is thirty days, with stop-over privileges. "All the banks and trusts and financial institutions are interested," he said. "It would be a serious matter if the Union Pa eific had to default upon any of its obliga tions. It would do more to depreciate values than the gold craze. The harvest this year will be a phenomenally large one, and at the end of the year the United States will have a larger balance of gold than at any time in the previous history of the country. Three hundred million dollars in gold at least ought to be received from Europe. There will be a large amount of breadstufs to sell and Europe must buy them. Union Pacific will reap large bene fits from the great crops. Not the slightest trouble was experienced in getting large capitalists to join the syndicate." The Paciflc Short Line Sale. A railroad sale of great importance to the west will take place September 1 at Omaha when the Pacific Short Line railroad will be sold at anuction by the receiver of the road. There is added interest in the mat ter from the fact that when the decrees of sale issued some weeks ago an attempt was made to sngpress the document. There will be many bidders for the property. Two factions among the original stockholders are anxious to recure control of the road, and in addition the Chicago & Northwest ern, Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul and Illinois Central companies are figuring on getting the line which runs from Sioux City west through Nebraska for about 120 miles. In case the Chicago & Northwestern secures possession of the road, it will not be built any further west, but will be amalgamated with either the Fremont, Elkhorn & Mis souri Valley or the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha, both of which cor porations are owned by the Chicago & Northwestern. In case either the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul or the Illinois Cen tral gets the line, it will undoubtedly be pushed forward at an early date. But one Obstacle. The Manitoba & Northwestern will ab sorb the Manitoba system of the Northern Paciflc, and will in turn be swallowed up by the Canadian Pacific. This will give the latter corporation every mile of road in Manitoba. 'the only difficulty in the way of a direct fusion of the Canadian Pacific and the Northern Pacific is the fact that a consolidation of the two companies is forbidden by the charter of the latter company. Mr. Van Horne's trip to Eng land is said to have been in conjunction with the latter project. Through Stevens Pass. It is pretty well settled that the Great Northern will be run through the Stevens pass, says a Tacoma dispatch. A gentleman who has just returned from a trip across the Cascades, via Stevens' pass, states that the Great Northern has a force of seventy. five men clearing away timber at each end of the tunnel, which will be nearly a mile in length. At least fifty miles of grading will be done by the company this fall. Its right of way will be cleared down the Shy komish to Rocky Point and Wallace. The Carmen's Convention.

Herron, stock deteeMoUe 19 Choteau county, belongs the credit of thl capture of the smuggled Chinamen, Whcit conductor, Gus Brede, was struck by light. ning and killed near Fort Benton reoently, Herron had been up on the Teton with a lot of stray horses, and after deliverinu them, started back toward Fort Beuton, When about five miles out from that town a terrible storm came up, accompanied by the most vivid lightning and deafening thunder. Determined to reach town, Herron rode on through the rain and hall. Suddenly there came a blindiag flash of tightning, which stunned the de tective. When he was able to see anything I at all he noticed in the road not far ahekd a covered wagon standing still, with one of the horses down and another trying to break loose from the harness. Several men were running away from the wagon and making toward the coulee. Perceiving the detective they ran back to the wagon. On reaching the vehicle Herron saw that the occupants were Chinamen, except one, a man who sat on the driver's place. This man sat nearly straight up, his shoulders resting against the back of the seat, his head thrown back and hil eyes, wide open, staring into vacancy. A moment's exami nation showed Herron that the man was dead. The detective knew him and the circumstances of the case combined with the presence of the Chinamen, caused him to size up the situation at once. Placing the Chinamen before him he drove them like a band of cattle toward Benton. The rain and hail were coming down In sheets and progress was slow. Finally, coming to a partly sheltered spot on the Teton, the detective left the Chinamen there, knowing they could not escape in such a storm, and rode to town, four miles off, through the blinding gale. At Benton the coroner was notified of the dead man in the wagon and Collector Sullivdn of the cap tured Chinamen, who were at once brought to town. Eight of them will be returned to China via San Franoisco, Some of the others proved that they had been here be fore and it was impossible to prove that they had ever gone out of the country. While Canada is letting the Chinamen into the United States over the border line, the dominion is very anxious to take away from Benton a subject of her majesty whom the Chotean people are not at all anxious to keep. He is a half-breed who goes by the name of Billy the Kid, and is wanted for horse stealing. At present he is in Fort Benton jail awaiting the arrival of the neo essarv extradition papers from Washington. Gus. Brede, who was making toward Ben ton with his cargo of smuggled Chinamen when the lightning terminated the journey and his career at the same time, was not paying his first visit to the place. In addi tion to being suspected of smuggling be fore, he played a prominent part in what is known as the Hoppie murder case. He was the only eye-witness to the murder. and his testimony sent the murderer to the penitentiary. AMUSEMENTS. There is a wide difference between the Parlor Match and the Grab Bag. The per formance last evening was attended by not more than a handful of people who were pleased at times and at other times bored. The actors tried to please. Mestayer is a good comedian, Theresa Vaughan .sings well and Lillie Sinclair is a bright little girl and a clever dancer. The most attrac tive feature of the entertainment is the appearance of the young ladies in bathing suits. The playwill probably run smoother this evening as the orchestration will doubt less be more in harmony with the singing or vice versa. At Mings the remainder of the week. A Royal Pass. Of the next attraction at the opera house the Pittsburg Leader says the following: The-Bijou had a good house last evening to witness A Royal Pass. The plot of the play h inges on the separation of man and wife, and also outlines with no little force the cause of the administrative process-laws of Russia. There is no mark or moral at the close, the human interest of the woven web of romance being sufficient. Plays of this character will educate the masses, and in itiate them in Russian affairs with more force and realism than the simple book page of story. George C. Staley, the star, is an excellent actor and singer, and no doubt will become popular. His voice is sweet, and it fairly captured the house. A Royal Pass may be put down as a success. Drs. Essig & Foote, dentists, rooms C510 and 511 Power block-fifth floor. Men's necktiosin tecks and four-in-hands, only t10o at The lBee Hive. HELD UP IN HIS ROOM. An East Helena Saloon Keeper Made to Hand Over $319. Marcus Kochvar, an Austrian, who keeps the Smelter saloon at East Helena, closed his saloon about one o'clock on Wednesday morning and retired to bed in a room in the same building. Shortly after three o'clock he was suddenly awakened and saw three masked men in his room. The demanded all the money he had. Kochvar denied having any. One of the men placed a revolver to the saloon keeper's head while the others searched about. Be neath the mattress of the bed they found a wallet containing $319, all the money Koch. var had in the place. The robbers left with this. There is no clue to their identity. Herman Kline Their Nominee. Herman Kline was nominated last night by the republicans of the First ward as their candidate for the vacant ailde,man ship. It is said he was the only man who wanted the nomination, and he received it by acclamation. He has lived in Helena about six years and is well-known in his ward. Mr. Kline was a partner of the late David RIubeu in the loan business. There is some talk of giving the democratic nomination to Judge J. M. Clements who will undoubtedly have a walk over. The World Enriched. The facilities of the present day for the production of everything that will conduce to the material welfare and comfort of mankind are almost unlimited and when Syrup of Figs was first produced the world was enriched with the only perfect laxative known, as it is the only remedy which is truly pleasing and refreshing to the taste and prompt and effectual to cleanse the system gently in the spring time, or, in fact, at any time, and the better it is known the more popular it becomes Where Is Frank Brady ?
