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
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
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
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.

To Samuel J. 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

more than a handful of people who were

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

this evening as the orchestration will doubt

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.

Marcus Kochvar, an Austrian, who keeps

Kochvar denied having any. One of the
men placed a revolver to the saloon keeper's
head while the others searched about. Be

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.

St. Vincent's Academy, for Young Ladies, under the direction of the
Sisters of Charity, is pleasantly situated on a terrace of one of the Little
Rookies, known as Catholic Hill.
It can easily be reached from the Northern Pacific and Montana
Central Depots by ordinary conveyance, or the Electric Car Line. The
site of the Academy is one of the healthiest and most beautiful in the
city. Attending physlcians, whose names give them first rank in the
profession, will bear ample testimony to the fact. The building is of
brick; the water, light and sewerage connections leave nothing to be
desired in the way of Sanitary Arrangements. Gas pipes are laid
through all the rooms; the entire building is heated by the hot water
system. The studies pursued in the Elementary Grades consist of the
usual English course, withl the rudimentary course of Music and Draw
ing. In the Advanced Grates a full Academic course is given.
As methods to promote emulation, there are monthly notes, quar
terly bulletins to parents, regular examinations, oral and written in
each grade, with distributions of prizes at close of scholastic year, for
