GAN'S & KILEIN - ~ ýM 1>, ON MAY IoTH, 1857, the Se pay rebellion broke out near Delhi. Thus began the uprising in which the achievements of Have lock and the sieges of Cawnpore and Delhi were memorable epi sodes. The captured mutineers were blown from cannon, a fate peculiarly harrowing because they supposed that annihilation here robbed them of the chances of existence hereafter. TROUSERS FOR MEN. Regular, Short and Stout, Long and Lean, Extra Size. GANS & ILEIN MMN ON FIlR. Flames Start in Some Unexplained Manner on the Four Hun. dred Level. In a Section of the Mine That Was Long Since Worked Out. No Lives Lost, and Ropes Entertained TItt the Spread of the Fire May be Prevented. MARnvsvxna, May 9.-[ipeolal.]-As the night shift in the Drum Lummon mine were commencing work last night, smoke was discovered issuing from the main shaft. The alarm was quickly given and all the workmen ucceaeded in getting safely to the surface. Within a few minutes after the first intimation of depgor the drifts and passee were filled with smoke and poison ous gaseu. The shaft in which the fire was located is situated at the end of a tunnel 1,200 ftst long. Here in the solid rook is out a station 100 feet long, forty feet wide and seventy-five feet high, lined with solid masonry and equipped with one of the finest hoisting engines in the country. The shaft is 1.200 feet deep and the station it self 400 feet from the surface. This por tion of the mine, which was worked out during the early history of the company, was flled with waste so that there is little danger of the Are spreading from the shaft. Immediately after the breaking out of the fire bulkheads were 'erected near the shaft and during the night others were erected at various points in the mine whenever the air currents made it possible to advance 'a few feet toward the dangerous point. Finally, by the aid of portable bulkheads the nozzle of a fire hose was placed in the top of the shaft and the water turned on with good effect. As soon as possible con nections were made through an eight-inch wrought iron pipe and a larger stream of water turned down the shaft from the tanks on the hill. The balkheads are now sealed up and, if necessary, the whole mine below the 400-foot level will be flooded, which, owing to the character of the rook, could be done without injury. At this time there is a large volume of water flowing down Sil ver creek which will all beutilized. Strong hopes are, however, entertained that the fire will be extinguished without this, as it is not believed to extend below the 600-foot level. The promptness and energy which the men displayed in attacking the fire has re auited in confining it to the north end of the shaft and under the infiuence of 1,000 gallons of water per hour, which is being sprayed over the burn ing timbers under heavy pressure, it is hoped the fire will soon be out. At present aboutt 200 men are em ployed in the Montanacompany's mine and mills. There is enough ore in the bins to run for some time yet and fortunately there are other portions of the property where work can be resumed as soon as the mine has been eleared of smoke, so that it is generally believed the interruption will be of short duration. The general manager manager ef the company, Mr. G. H. Rob inson, is on the ground. He is known to have had plenty of experience in fighting fire while he was connected with the Fryer Hill mines in Leadville, and there is a gen eral feeling here that if it is possible to extinguish the fire it will be done. WANT TO KEEP COL. RAMSEY. A Great Favorite With the Employee of This Divisie. MISSOULA, May 9.-[Special.]-There ap pears to be considerable dissatisfaction among the employee of the Rock Mountain division over the transfer of Superinten dent S. 0, Ramsey to another position of the road, although practically a promotion for that gentleman. This does not arise from any unpopularity of Mr. Brison. the new appointee, who is a stranger to most of them, but entirely from Mr. Ramsey's great popularity with the employes under him. This feeling is also shared by all the patrons of the road and people living here. It was'rumored that a strike among the employes was impending if Mr. Ramsey was not retained on this division. A committee of two employes from each department was seleeted to take action in an endeavor to have him reinstated here, with the honors equal to the new position offered. It is understood that several of the head officers of the road are en-route here to look into the matter, and that he will continue his duties on this division until a conference of those officials is held. G. W. Diekinson, assistant general super intendent, is now in the city and other ofHicials are en-route. The Blue Bird Sale. BUTTE, May 9.-[Special.]-The Blue Bird mine, the eighty-stamp mill, the mill site, pump station and the mining claims of the Blue Bird company, the failure of which occasioned the suicide of Ferdinand Van Zandt in New York a few weeks ago, were sold by the sheriff this afternoon. The property was bid in by M. B: Brownlee, of the firm of Hoge, Brownile & Co., bankers, for the amount of the judgment. Miles City Is Repubilcan. MILEs CITY, May 9.-[Spe0ial.]-The city election occurred to-day. H. B. Wiley, re publican, was elected mayor by seventeen votes, over C. L. Merrill. N. P. Sorenson, republican, and Thos. Gibbs, democrat, were eloted aldermen. The city council now stands with the deciding vote in the hands of the mayor. Murder Trial Poal poned. BUTTE, May 9.-[Special.1-The case of Charles G. Price, accused of the murder of P. J. Cunningham, in this city last Decem ber, was set for to-day but was postponed on accpunt of the absence of material wit nesses for the state. June 6 was fixed as the date for the trial. Coetract for a School Buiding. BorEnrtwx, May 9.-[Special.]-The con tract for the erection of the Boremin pftbllo sohool buildings was to-night awarded to Davit , Vreeland of Bozeman for $40,X,7. e Shot Himself In the 1sI'p. Bils Tnatnaa, May 9.-[Special.]-Dell Marrieon, a young man living at Sweet Grass, was accidentally shot in the left leg at the hip this 'afternoon. Having taken his revolver from its sheath, he was trying to replace it, whesr it was discharged with the above result. He was brought to this 'place and is now under the care of a physi clan. The wound is considered serious. Shut Down for Three Weeks. BuTTs, May 9.-[$peoial,]-The Gagnon mine Was closed down this evening for three weeks. The shut-down was nescest tated by the condemnation of three of the boilers by Inspector Layton. About 120 men are thrown out of work. MISS ROCKMAN IN NEW YORK. The Important Part Which She Took in the Actors' Fair. Miss Ray Rockman, daughter of Dr. M, RockmAn, of this city, took an important part in the actors' fair which closed in New York Satturday last. Mine tockman has undergone a thorough course of study for the stage in New York and her part in the fair as "Rebecca at the Well" brought out favorable comment from all the papers. A dispatch to the San Francisco Examiner says: "Dainty andhbewitching Ray Rook man as Rebecca 'at the Well is pouring lemonade into the public at a price per pour that would give the circus vender brain fever to. read about. But then, the circus vender is not a sweet thing in a fetching costume, with sparkling eyes that can put to route a whole army of blue devils." The New York World paid Miss Rockman the compliment of illustrating her and her booth in the five illustrations that journal gave of the fair. The World says: "Joseph Jefferson and William Kendal stepped at the well-the well with Rebecca. Many be the Jacobs that stop there to drink, and drinking look into two deeper and darker wells and lose their hearts. Miss Ray Bockman is the Rebecca-a pic turesque. dark skinned Rebecca, with hair as dark as midnight and teeth white and even and pretty. She wore an Egyptian blouse of soft white silk, hand embroidered with fanciful designs in red. Her skirt was of soft red worsted, as red as the flame of the rhododendrons at the other end of the garden. A blue sash was around her waist, and gayly patterned beads from far Pales tine were around her neck. She gave drink to Mr. Jefferson and Mr. Kendal and wouldn't take a cent in pay. 'That is the best drink of lemonade I ever had in Amer ica.' said the Englishman, gallantly. 'And his first, too,' said a woman who stood near by." The New York Tribune said: "Miss Ray Eookman captured the command of Rebecca's well, and with many other dam sels to help her will give drink to the thirsty pilgrim who arrives there after traversing the barren wastes between the other booths." Those who have bad the pleasure or meeting Miss Rookman during her stay in Helena do not think the favorable so tices quoted are in the least overdone. DO YOU KNOW THE GIRL? A Romantic Story in Which a Helena Lady Figures. A dispatch from Cheyenne tells the fol lowing story, which is of local interest: On the platform of a Pullman at the depot here yesterday morning an indolent-look ing chap in English togs and a pretty woman in red conversed so earneatly that they attracted the attention of everybody in their range. The passengers were anx ious to tell' the story of the interesting pair, and said the man was a "frank, honest fellow," who would talk willingly. Cards were exobanned, and his read, "Edward F. Griffin, overseer of publie works depart ment, Hong Kong." He yielded his story like a major. Said he: "I am trying to persuade the girl to stop off in Cheyenne and marry me but she wants to go to Colorado Springs and see her folks about it first. Eight years ago we were lovers in Vermont and were engaged. My parents were Irish emigrants and poor, and her people were wealthy. It was agreed that I should start out to make my fortune and she should wait for me. She has been true, and has waited like an angel. I worked in the Chicago stock yards, prospected in Colorado a and tried a half a dozen things on the coast. Six years ago I landed in Hong kong. At first I was clerk in a wholesale house then acquired my present place. My salary is $5,000, and I make something on the side, as you say in America. All the time I have thought of the girl and knew she was single and thinking of me, though I never heard of her. She now lives at Colorado Springs and has been visiting friends in Helena. We met in the car at Ogden and recognized each other at once. It was a pleasant and sweet meeting. Be fore the train had gone a hundred miles we were engaged again, and will be married at her home right away." Griffin's story was smilingly corroborated by the girl. LEVEES GIVING WAY. The Outlook Gloomy for settlers Along the Mississlppl. NEw ORLEANS, May 9.-Reports from up the river as far as Vickeburg say the stream is still steadily rising and much anxiety is felt at all points. The levee at Brook. Mill, on the Arkansas side, twenty-five miles fouth of Greeneville, Miss., gave way to-day and this evening through a crevice thirty-five feet wide, water is rushing six feet deep. About 7,000 acres of Arkansas land, already planted in corn and cotton, are inundated, while that section of Louisiana near Bayou Maria embraces a vast amount of land in cultivation, will be flooded. It is thought that Mason's hills will prevent the water from reaching Tenses basin. The govern ment fleet has been appealed to by citizens of the afflicted district for assistance. Levees on the Mississippi aide are still in tact and believed to be secure. It is believed, however, that more of those on the Arkansas side will go. Late this evening there was a ru mor that the great Morganza levee, the largest in the United States, had given way. This evening the wind was increasing in violence up the river, rain still falling, and waves frequently dashing over the tops of the levees, creating a panic among the peo ple. A SPIRIT OF UNREST. Prevailing Among the TWorking People of the East. WILie RARteemta, Pa., May 9.-John S. Had rack, at prominent labor lIader in the anthracite district, said this morning: "The spirit of unrest is universal among coal miners and an organized effort is being made by them to resist the consummation of the Heading deal. The men have become disgusted at the evident insincerity of those in positiont to bring the combine to terms and now pmopose to take the matter into their own hands. The men assert that in rder to pay the guarantee given by the iteading cocI must be advanced 40 cents a ton, or the wages of the miners reduced from seven and nue-half to 10 pe cent. ' hey cannot see how It is possibie to ad vance coal in the market and conclude that the only alto' native is the reduction of wages to a starvation point. No less than four delegations waited upon me to secure the assistance of business meti to the miners in their light against the combine. The men are determined that the constitu tion shall be obeyed or serious trouble will follow." The treasury department purchased (1, 000 ounces of silver Monday at from .8741 to.8712; 1,024,000 ounces were offered.

It was a season of personalities, outcropping of factional war and general 4isagreemoents, All attempts to cover the lack of harmony were very thinly die guised. It may be said with truth that the always quarreling delegation of Silver Bow was the most harmonious of all. They had settled matters at a caucus before coming. For the first time in public, Lion Mantle and Lamb Couch laid with each other, or vice versa, and everything from Silver Bow was lovely indeed. The trouble in other directions commenced brewing on the train that brought the Cascade and one-half of the Lewis and Clarke delegation here Sun day evening. The Rolfe ring of the Great Falls republicans was badly beaten in the county convention and as a result the Cas cadse delegation was solid for Ex-Mayor Dickerman, an alleged townsite republican. Saturday evening it was arranged in Hel ens that the Cascade delegation should support Seligman and receive in their re turn it solid Lewis and Clarke sup nort for Dickerman. Seligman got the beet of it. He was the third Minneapolis delegate chosen, and received the expected Coascade support, but when it came Diekerman's turd he failed to deliver the goods. The man from Great Falls received only one-half of the Lewis and Clarke vote. Editor Rolfe had his re venge. While he had been turned down in the Great Falls convention he was not idle elsewhere. He quietly worked among all the delegates, accusing Dickerman of party treachery. As a result Dickerman, with the prgmiaed support of leading politi oians, was defeated, and a Fergus county sheepman chosen instead. The feeling is very bitter over this result. Geo. W. Irvin, one of the best-humored Montanians, was particularly ill-tempered. He consented to the candidacy of Couch, but this was the limit of toleration. He objected to nearly every resolution. He found temporary en joyment in being sarcastic to Lewis and Clarke county, and rose to the limit of en thusiasm when he roasted A. B. Hammond and the Missoula Mercantile company. Gen. Charles Statecraft Warren got mad over the action of the Silver Bow delega tion, in endorsing Couch, and though a delegate refused to attend the convention. Lewis and Clarke county had three candi dates for Minneapolis honors. Seligman's nomination was due to the untiring efforts of Gene. Weed and Eaton, and D. A. Cory. They never wasted a moment of time. They secured the support of Silver Bow through an agreement which must have been satisfactory to Mantle and Irvin, neither of whom could have forgotten Seligman's efforts to make Power a United States senator. It was a chilly day for Harrison. His name caused no enthusiasm in the conven tion at any time. When Blaine's name was mentioned there were five minutes of howls. While it is difficult to determine the wishes of delegates to Minneapolis, ex cept that they are practically instructed for Blaine, it may be said that all are quite as friendly for Harrison as any other candi date who may be presented. All endorsed in full the resolutions adopted by the convention. The Missoula people made excellent ar rangements for the care of delegates. All were very well eared for at the hotels and in the opera house. The band from Fort Missoula opened the proceedings with joy. one strains of music, though the harmony did not last. The special train from Butts was greeted by a big procession at the de. pot. After dinner they were again called together, the band playing "The Picture That was Turned Toward the Wall," a prophetic air, as several prominent repub lican faces were turned toward the wall later on. The opera house was eorgeously decorated with flags, buntings, flowers, plants and standard republican mottoes, like "The republican party is the party of proyression, the democratic party of retro gression," etc. At 12 o'clock Secretary James B. Walker, of Helena, and State Treasurer Hickman walked upon the stage. In the absence of Chairman White, and at his request, Mr. 11ickman called the convention to order. After the secretary had read the call, Geo. Freeman, of Helena, nominated Hon. Chas. S. Hartman, of Bozeman. as temporary chairman. Hartman withdrew and Mantle was nominated amid ringing choers. Judge Marshall, of Missoula, and Sensitor God dard, of Billings, who wanted to go to Minneapolis but failed, escorted Mr. Man tle to the stage. The newly' elected mayor of Butte was very warmly greeted, Though bearing evidence of physical debility, he made a speech in which he thanked the convention for the honor conferred; for the first time Montanians were called upon to participate in a national election, and be predicted republican victory. lIof once to Harrison's administration was very brief. The yells came when he said, "Chief among the president's advisers stands that figure, dear to every republican heart, the living embodiment of republican principles and tradition, a giant of diplom noy, who has outlived all ealuminies. James 0. Blaine." Wild applause followed the name, and it was renewed after a short paneo. Mr. Mantle's reference to free silver coin age was also greeted by great applause. Geo. B. Child, of Helena, was made secre tary. The various committees were thou named, the most important of which is that on resolutions. It was divided as fol lows: On the committee vote to submit the resolutions endorsed the ayes wersi llaokin, Haskell, Murray, Cowan. Irvin, Turner, Hatch, Leigh; nays: Strevell, Hof man, Von Toble, Pack, Stuart, Brown. The resolution endorsing Blaine caused the split. After adjournment Hon Chas, Hart. man was made permanent chairman and Mr. Child continued as secretary. The trouble first commenced over the method of choosing delegates. It was finally de cided to divide the state into districts by a committee. THE RESOLUTIONS. Circus Over the One Landing Jilaine to the Skies. The real fun of the day followed the re port of the resolutions committee. It was not altogether unexpected, for a rumor had crept about that the delay in presenting the report was caused by serious differences in the committee. Some said there was tronble over the resolution on silver, and others, more knowing, predicted that it would be the last resolution. After a recess of fifteen minutes, ample time to get all refreshments, the convention reassembled in good nature. A national air,trom the band aroneed added enthusiasm, after which the chairman announced that the committee on resolutions was ready to re port. Col. Botkin, who has written more convention denunciations of the democratic party than any Montanian, wheeled his chair before the stage and read the report. It was evident from the fine phrases that his chirographic hand had been as conspicuous on the committee as usual. The first gsa nine bush of the day commanded instant attention. The resolutions proclaim renewed devo tion to the republican party; endorse the McKinley bill and reciprocity and denounce the demoeratic majority for passing the free wool bill; condemn all efforts to re move the tariff from Mexican lead ore; en dorse free silver coinage; demand vigorous legislation against the importation of Chinese labor; protest against the importa tior of contract labor and recommends the revision of the present laws; favor liberal pensions; favor the greatest possible exten sion of unsurveyed lands; demand that the contract between the government and the Northern Pacific company be carried out to the letter of the law, and demand measures to secure Montana's rights to mineral lands; arraign the democratic party as an organized conspiracy against the pure and free ballot, and the friend of all vile prin stoles of a representative government; en dorse the labors of Sanders and Power, and compliment Carter on the administra tion of the land effice; endorse the admin istration of President Harrison for vigor, sagacity, etc. The resolution which started the circus was the last one. It reads: 'Resolved, That, in common, as we believe, with the great mass of the republicans of the Un ion, we would delight to see the standard of the party placed in the hands of him whose name is a household word in every American home, and a cherished treasure in every American heart, the fore most statesman of this time, the inmarne tion of progressive and patriotic republi canism, the object of the people's fondest desire, James G. Blaine." The scene which followed may be prop erly termed indescribable. The delegates rose like one man and gave a Sioux war yell, that could be all but heard in Helena. Hats flew in the air as the applause was echoed again and again, and the few ladies present even caught thefever of enthusiasm and raised their voices for the premier. An effort to start the music failed, as the dele gates followed cheer after cheer, until their voices were stopped by physical exhaustion. To those not interested the inconsistency of endorsing Harrison's administration in one breath and Blaine in another was very apparent. One delegate had sufilsient nerve to give expression to this view. After the applause had quieted, Judge Stre vell, of Custer county, whose appearance resembles that of Hon. W. H. Claggett to a striking degree, except for the goatee, arose. "It looks formidable," he said, "in the face of the demonstration that has just been made for me to make such a motion as I contemplate. I move to strike out the "No! No!" yelled the delegates. After Thompson Campbell's question of a point of order had been squelched the judge son tinued: "Ithink that you will agree with me that all that we do here to-day should bear scrutiny. Not one of you who raise your hats and shout is a greater admirer of James G. Blaine than I. In these resolu tions we have endorsed the administration of President Harrison. You will not find anywhere in the history of this country a president who has given us a better admin istration than Harrison. I will ask you when the precedent was established of en dorsing a man twice in a convention? Mr, Blaine is a component part of this admin istiation which you have endorsed. You might single out one part and make it con spicuous before any convention. If this last resolution is anything it is an Instruc tion to vote for Blaine." "that's right," yelled one man, and the mass of other delegates followed with "Good! Good!" The applause was renewed again and the judge was forced to wait fully five minutes before continuing. "If you instruct, make the instruction direct, though I understand that no delegate is to be instructed. lint if this resolution is anything it is instruc tion. I do not believe that Mr. Blaine should be placed in the attitude of a falsi fier to this country." "He's all right!" said a Silver .llow Inman. "I address this subject to your judgment rather than your sentiment," continued Judge Strevell. "I move to strike out this resolution, because it does not belong there. With no dicourtesy, but the highret ad miration for Mr. Blaine, I have the feeling that he is not a standard bearer." "You but lie is!" interrupted another delegate." "'T'he adoption of this resolution will weaken Montana at Minneapolis and in the campaign at home. If I have any convic tion it is ihat President Harrison will be re-nominated." The applause which followed the judge's much interrupted speech was hardly heard. When he had finished, C!l. Callahan, a young delegate from Boaverhead arose, and after a few dramatic gestures, said: "As well attempt to harness Niagara as to strike out this resolution." Lond applanee fol. lowed this familiar comparison, while the Continued on Second Page, HAYES LOST ON A FOUL The Helena Champion Had His Man Whipped, But Hit Him After Time. From Which Circumstance He Lost Both the Fight and the Purse. Billy PInmmer, of IEugland, Outfights Tommy Kelly, the "Harlem Spider" -Base Hall and Races. MraSOrLA, May 10-[Special.--A glove contest, announced for twenty-fve rounds, was fought at the Masoot this morning be tween Jim Brnes, of Idaho, and Ike Hayes. of Helena. Burns weighed 1151 pounds and Hayes 178. They went into the ring at one a. m. H. C. Brown was chosen referee. The first round was lively, showing fre quent clinches, Burns getting first blood in this round. In the second round Burns lost one glove and one minute was given. Burns landed a heavy blow on Hayes' mouth. In the third round Hayes commenced to show signs of weakening. The round was' lively and gave plenty of work for the ref eree. The men showed themselves veiry vicious. The latter end of the round was spent in sparring for wind. In the fourth round Hayes rushed and was punishing Burns badly. Burns could scarcely stay to the end of the round. When time was called Hayes was pounding him heavily and struck three heavy blows after time, which was a distinct foul. Though his man was whipped he lost the fight and Burns won. AN"ENGLISH CHAMPION. Billy Plimmer Whips Tommy Kelly, the "Harlem Spider." NEW YORK. May 9.-A crowd of sporting men assembled at the Coney Island Ath letic club to-night to witness an interna tional prize fight between Tommy Kelly, of Harlem, the champion 110 pound man of America, and Billy Plimmer, champion of that weight in England. Kelly tried to force the fighting in the first, but Plimmer quickly forced him to cling to his neck for safety. In the second the Englishman forced the fighting and made Kelly cautious. In the third, Kelly tried walking around, but Plimmer followed and gave him a good many punches, getting few blows in return. In the fourth Kelly kept up running around tactics and proved him self a good two-handed fighter, but in the fifth Plimmer , landed a straight left, which made blood flow freely frsom Kelly's mouth. In the sixth, under direction of his seconds, Plimmer fo ced the dighting and made a regular chopping block of Kelly's faee, landing his left almost at will. In tho seventh Kelly assumed the offen sive. but Plimmer met him wisthte utmost ease. Several vicious blows were struck. I.i the eighth both men received severe punishment, but Kelly was forced into the defensive. In the ninth Kelly was almost knocked out by short arm blows, but pluckily staggered to his feet and fought like a tiger to the call of time. In tenth Kelly showed signs of quitting and fell down twice without re ceiving a knockout blow, the last time he was counted out, much to the disgust of the assemblage. BASE BALL.
