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.

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.

clan. The wound is considered serious.
Shut Down for Three Weeks.
BuTTs, May 9.-[$peoial,]-The Gagnon
mine Was closed down this evening for

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.

MT5RouLA, May 9.-[Special,1-The re
publican state convention was not a love
feast. 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

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

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

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.
