New 'roagrammi Will Be An. nounced by the Leaders at That Time. Precautions Against Any Distarbances em Labor Day-Mleneter Miguel Ad vises Recognition of the Day. [Copyright. 1892, New York Associated Pres.' BEnrmN, April 9.-When the landing re assembles April 28, an important regroup ing of parties will be efected. Negotia tions point to the coalition of the moderat4 oonservation faction with the liberals which will result in the formation of a cartel party, having some of the best .l4 monts of the old cartellers. The split be tween the nltra-oonservative' and moder atos has practically destroyed the coneer vative majority in the landtag and alec places that party at a tremendous disad. vantage for the general elections. Therene no hope of reconcgliation, as the divergence ie too pronounced. If a strong coalition is effected the government will follow its pol icy on a distinct natiqnal-liberal bias. The bulk of conservatives admit that it is a ohance to avenge themselves on the govern ment for abandoning the primary educa tion bill. After the Easter holidays the leaders will announce a new programme, the spirit of which will probably be a de fense of senservative principles. The pub 1it take political incertitude quietly. Even reports of Von Caprivi's retiring after Easter in favor of Von Ealenberg do not stir the general pulse. The preparations of the socialists for the May day celebration are keenly watched by the authorities. The Austrian socialists have decided to held a demonseration on May 2, and desire the Germans to hold a simultaneous celebration. Von Caprivi proposed to influenee the employers to re fuse the men a holiday on May 2. Miguel advised his colleagues to treat the day as a reeegnized labor holiday, and if the cele bration is held Monday to close the gov ernament fastories. He even suggested that prices at the theaters be reduced and mili tary bands be ordered to play in the pub. lio gardens. The other ministers did not go as far as Miguel, but agreed not to op peoe the demonstrations. In Berlin a number of emeetings have been arranged. but there will be no big processions. If the anarchists attempt to create disorder they will meet with instant and severe repres In Vienna the day will be celebrated b3 a discussion of the eight-hour question, Another seetion proposes to hold proces sions throughout Anitria.

Petersburg says the czar and ozarine and family will leave for Copenhagen April 22 to attend the golden weddingof the king and queen of Denmark. The repert that the emperor and king oi Baxeny will witness the Austrian army maneuvers is untrue. Consular reports for the first quarter in 1892 show a decrease in trade compared with the same period in 1891. It is alleged that this is due to the reciprocity treatise of the United States affeoting the German sugar trade of the West Indies and South America. From Berlin the deoredse is 8,000,000 marks, and from Hamburg 5,000, 000 marks, in sugar exports alone. About 1,000,000 marks of the Berlin decrease is in the cheapest kin'ds of fancy goods which are sent to the southern states. Berlin aehuetzen clubs will send a gold cup to the New York aohnetzen clubs in memory of the rifle festival held in Ger many in 1890.

FORGOT TO TELL SOMETHING. A Little Excitement Over an Alleged Ghost on Davis Street. Within the past few weeks several col ored people have reported passing a ghost ly walker on Davis street at Fifth avenue. The first one who says he saw it is a boy. He states that he was walking along Davis street when he passed so close to a woman that he had to move to one side to avoid brushing against her. She was dressed in a gray suit and had something white tied about her head. Her appearance was so strange that he turned to look after her, but she had disappeared. Since then sev eral others have told the same story, all agreeing that the figure comes up Davis street, walks across and into Fifth avenue and vanishes before their eyes. Several who heard the story have laid in wait for the spectre, but it would not aceommodate them. Those familiar with local history say that Pete Schimmel killed himself in that locality some years ago. His wife died a few years later. It is claimed that before she died she intimated that she. had something of importance to tell, but the end-came too soon. Now the superstitious say her shade is walking about the old scenes, anxious to tell her secret. The chances are, however, that the flickering of the hiu electric lights has produced soni phantestie shadows which have been mis taken for a "spook." THERE WAS NO FIGHT. County Attorney and Sheriff's Office Stoj the Glove Contest. The ten-round glove conteit which was te have taken clacs between Chick Rodgeri and Broeky O'Neill in Encore hall las night, did not come off.

County Attorney Nolan was seer and stated that such wee the ease; the fight could not come off. He said if the men gal into the ring the first blow delivered would be construed into a case of assault and thai it would cost them the limit. The fighters and the sports generally were very much disappointed. Hall's Dander Up. PHILADELPHIA. April 9.-Pugilist Fitzsim. mona' reply to Jim Hall angered the lattei into eaying many caustic things regarding Fitzsimmons. He said: "In our fight at Sydney, in February, 1890, I whipped him thoroughly, knocked him out in the fourth round. I am now prepared to repeat the performance, and $5,000 of the money of Parson Davies, my backer. says I can. If he means business and is not too cowardly to fight me, a match between us can easily be arranged. I will concede everything reasonable and only ask one point, that we fight at 105 pounds. All I want is another meeting with Fitzaimmons, to prove for all time who is the better pugilist. I will bet $5,000 on the outside that I defeat him. His story that he was paid to 'go out' in the last fight is false." Match May Fall Through. Naw Yonn, April 9.-The deeiiand of the Olympic club of New Orleans that John L. Sullivan and James J.

MIR KELLY, WIf ll AAWS, The Demooratic Nominee for Mayor of Great Falls Is Off the Track. This Action Due to the Receipt of a Telegram From Superin tendent Case. Laid at the Doer of the Towusite Cam. pauy-Deer Lodge In the Demo. eratie Column. GREAT FALrs, April 9.-[Spsoial.]-Hon, Patrick Kelly, the democratic nominee for mayor, this afternoon announced to the aity democratic committee that he would withdraw from the race. This action was prompted by the receipt of a telegram from Superintendent Case, of the Great North erm, at 11 o'clock last night calling upon to retign his position as agent of the com pany in this city or withdraw from the con test, on the ground that it was against the policy of the company to allow their agents to mix in local politic.. This withdrawal, coming at the eleventh hour, and when too late for the democrats to put another man in nomination, created the greatest consterna tion and excitement among the democracy of Great Falle, Accordingly, a mass meet ing was held in Arlon hall this. evening and resolutions were passed denouncing as political, trickery the move that prompted the withdrawal. Speeches were made by leading democrats and they fully defined their position on the subject. It is openly charged that certain republicans, who are interested in the election of the republican nominee, induced the Great Northern officiale to compel Kelly to withdraw. In fact, the whole thing is laid at the door of the townsite company. The greatest in dignation is expressed and excitement runs high. The withdrawal of Kelly leaves only two nominations in the field: Charles M. Web ster on the republican ticket, and Daniel McKay on the citizens' ticket. Many dem. carats announce that they will throw all their support to McKay, and the acquisi tion of democratic votes to him will make Monday's election a very doubtful one as far as the result is concerned. The total registratiop of voters at the time the books closed to-night was over 1,400. Daniel McKay, the candidate on the citi zens' ticket for mayor, addressed a meeting to-night in the court house. The burden of his talk was abuse of the towneite com pany, the, Great Northern Railroad com pany; and corporations in general.

Arrangements are about be ing completed with the Northern Pacific company for paving or macadamizing the streets from the depot to the court house. Taking it all in all Bozeman has a very prosperous year before it. The busi ness now under contract will call for the expenditure of three times as much money ae ever was invested in Bozeman in one year before. DEER LODGE IN LINE.

News is given out, however, that: 600 determined cowboys are trailling the thieves, and the prospects are that bloodshed will come from other places, in addition to that which has been reported from Billings. The movement is full of danger to the men on both sides of the fight. Since the raid began the rustlers have undertaken to retaliate by in discriminate and wasteful slaughter of cattle and horses belonging to cattlemean. The number of cattle they have stolen and destroyed is almost beyond estimate, and their stealings of horses alone Is estimated to have reached 10,000 head. A HANDSOME PRESENT, Employes of the Electric Road Remember the Retiring Superintendent. R. J. Turnbull ended his connection with the Helena Electric railway last night, and his old place as superintendent will here after be filled by C. Cahill. The employes of the road wish which Mr. Turnbull has been connected for so long as superintend ent decided to present him withsome token of their regard. All the conductors and pilots not on duty at the time, together with the housemen and the linemen and others, got together in the company's office in the basement of the Power block last night, and telephoned to Mr. Turnbull to come down. Once there he was presented with a handsoerfe diamond stud, the stone being of first quality and a karat in size. The present was accompanied by the fol lowing address, made by A. R. Beary, cash ier of the company: "We, the undersinged, employea of the Helena Electric Railway company, under your supervision, deeply regretting, one and all, the severance of your connection with the company, and hearing in mind your kind and courteous treatment of nu, while acting in the capacity of superintend. ent, beg to express by this small token the high appreciation and esteem in which we hold you, and trust you will accept it as a recognition of our feelings towar*b you, our rood wishes being supplemented by the hope that success will attend you in your new undertaking." Mr. Turnbull was taken completely by surprise. He replied that he couldn't say much. Railroad men never talked; they thought and acted. He was deeply grateful for the mark of esteem. It was entirely unnecessary, as they knew his feelings. While With the railroad company he had been treated well, but the striet attention of all the boys had rendered his work light, and he would be always glad to hear of their success in life. Among those present was Secretary Walker. President Wells came in during the ceremony. Mr. Turnbull has been in the employ of the street railway company since July, 1890, coming to it from the Montana Cen tral. He was in the steam railroad busi ness for fourteen years, and leaves the street railway service to go back to his first loy He wilt go east. in a few days to be absent about two weeks, and on his return will decide on his future movements. Chris Cahill, Mr. Turnbull's successor, though young in years, is an experienced street railway man. He was one of the first employes of the old motor railway, and worked his way up to the position of super intendent. He has excellent executive ability, and in addition has a well-deserved reputation as a hard worker. He will have sharge of the running of the cars, and pa trons may depend upon the same excellent service under his management as they had under Mr. Turubnll's. In selecsing Mr. Cahill to fill the vacancy occasioned by Mr. Turnbull's resignation, the directors made a good choice, one that will be endorsed by the public generally. GROVER AND HIS VIEWS.

WON BY THE OXFORDCREW The Sturdy Young Men in Dark Blue Score Their Twenty. sixth Victory. s They Achieve Additional Glory e by Breaking the Record for the Course. s The Conditions for a Race Excellent-The Cambridge Crew Not in It at f Any Time. Loxowx, April 9.-For the twenty-sixth time since the inauguration of the Oxford Cambridge boat races the crew of the Ox ford university boat club have passed the winning line ahead of their opponent. The dark blue of Oxford was again carried to victory by the strong arms of its wearers, a and thundering cheers greeted the oarsmen as they rested on oare after their well - fought battle for success. Altogether forty five races have been rowed, one of which, s that of 1877, terminated in a dead heat. The crowd began to assemble at nine 1 o'clock, the early comers seeking the best I points of vantage from which to view the contest. The wind was from the southwest, the water perfectly smooth, and all condi t tions for racing were perfect. The tide was on the flood before the time of racing. The crowds besieged the boathouse to get a glimpse of the crews. At noon, the time fixed for the race, the oarsmen appeared, and this was the signal for thundering cheers that swept up sad down the river again and again. Those at the starting point, though they could not see the proceedings, eagerly gazed in the l direction of the officers as the coin was tossed for choice of position. Oxford won the toss, and when this was known it was taken by the supporters of the crew as a happy augury of victory. Oxford chose the I Middlesex side of the river, as, if there was any advantage to be derived from the flood tide they would get it. The crews took theirsposition at the starting line, just above the aqueduct adjoining Putney bridge, and at exactly 12:15 the starting signal was given. Oxford took the water first, and their boat jumped to the front. Cambridge was quick to follow, and then the struggle be gan. With the perfect rhythm of a ma chine the oars dashed in and out of the water, but strain and struggle as they would, Cambridge could not close the gap between themselves and Oxford. The dark blues on shore were wild with 'excitement and yelled encouraging words to their fa vorites. But the cheers and the cries fell on deaf ears. Bending to their oars the Oxford crew saw nothing but their opp9. nents behind theoli and themseleitdf their arms and backs rose and fell as the steady stroke that kept them ahead was continued without a flew. When Hamaersmith bridge, one mile and six furlongs from the start, woareached Oxford was still in front. There was hardly any change in the relative position of the boats when the lead mills, one mile and seven furlongs from the start, were passed. Oxferd was then a quarter of a length in front. Both crews were pulling at the rate of thirty-six strokes a minute. Cambridge was pulling steadily, but their strokes did not seem to have the power of those of their opponents, and they dropped slowly but surely behind. At Chiewick mall, about two miled and a half from the start, Oxford had increased the lead, and when Thorny-Croft works, a little distance farther on was reached they were two lengths in front. This lead they maintained to Devonshire meadows. just beyond Thorny-Croft works, when, though pulling no faster more strength seemed to be put in their strokes, and their boat forged farther ahead. At Bainbridge, about three miles and five furlongs from the start, they were two and a quarter lengths in the lead. In passing Bainbridge. Cambridge spurted and gained a little on Oxford. but the latter bent steadily to their oars, and pulling a powerful, telling stroke, fairly lifted their boat out of the water. Past the osier beds, four miles from the star, a boat's span was the advantage on the side of Oxford. Cambridge did not lose heart in the least, and did their utmost tocelose the gap. Their efforts were fruitless, ho ver, and they dropped astern. Amid an iTproar that was deafening Oxford crossed the line at the old ship a good winner. It was at first announced that they had won by a length and a half, but official announcement of the judges nut the distance at two and a quarter lengths. Oxford's time was nineteen minutes, twen ty-one seconds. The time is the best ever made over the present course. The beet previous time is twenty minutes, five see onds, made by the Cambridge crew wuun they won in 1867 by three-quarters of a length. The slowest time made over the course was in 1880, when Cambridge won by one length in twenty-six minutes, five seconds. PASSOVER SERVICES. To lBe Held at Temple Emnaun-EI Meadaw Evening. On Monday night the Hebrews of Helena will celebrate the entrance of the Passover with services in the Temple Emana-EI and at their homes. The date corresponds to their 14th day of Nissanu, 5652, sod the He brew word for thet occasion is Pesach, sig nifying. "Aud the Lord passed over their houses."
