VOL, XXXIII,-NQ. 81 HELENA, MONTANA, FRIDAY MORNING. MAY 13, 1892. PRICE FIVE CENTS
ANSi & KLEIN ON MAY 13rTH, 1717, the Empress MARIE TIIERESA was born at Vienna. She was as famous for her beauty as she was for her intellectual gifts. For a period of three cen turies Austria had had no mon arch as vigorous, capable and energetic as this ruler proved herself to be, her capacity pro voking the admiration of even her arch enemy, FREDERICK the Great. We Always Keep a Full Line of Men's Full Dress and Prince Albert Suits in Stock. GANM & NLEIN THE PAPERS DISAPPROVE English Journals, With Gold Bug Leanings, Suspicious of the Sil. ver Conference. Think no Good Can Possibly Come of It, but Much Harm May. Insist That the Greatest Care ne Exercised in the Choice of Delegates Foreiogn ews. Loxnox, May 12.-The Standard says: "No harm can come from an international bi-metallic conference, but prudence must be shown in the choice of delegates. They should have no fixed theory, bat be trusted to look dispassionately at facts. We must confess that we have little hope that any good will come from any conference hav ing as its object the giving of fictitious ex chane value to any commodity under the sun. It is as importantto prevent harm as to do good, and incalculable injury might be done to the country's credit if the nation was indiscreetly encouraged and the gov ernment disposed to tamper with contracts to suit particular sections of the empire or special countries at the expense of others." The Times says: "We regret the course the government has taken. It appears to be playing into the hands of the politicians in power in Washington. If there be a possi bility by protocol or conference to estab lish a permanent parity between gold and silver the object would be worth the effort and sacrifice. But it is as impracti cable as that a pint pob hold a quart. The effect of the conference will only be to keep the silver market and the whole ques tion of currency in an unsettled state for a long time to dbme. If anything is likely to be done by an international agreement which will give a greater stimulus to the reh:abilitation of silver and the Bland bill,' it is not likely eves if the government was advised by the Bank of England to hold a portion of its reserve in silver, that the European powers would be tempted to em bark in the policy of bolstering up silver, or that the Bank of England wZuld consent thus to reduce its already too small gold reserve, or that such a step would produce the ffect which the Bland nact failed to produce. We cannot now avoid being made to serve the turn of the political wire pullers and stock speculators by the acceptance of President Harrison's invita tion, but we can at least be careful not to go beyond the manifest and narrowly de fined boundaries of safety." Dynamite on the Track. BUDA PERTH, May 12.-A great sensation was caused to-day by an explosion in An drassey street, one of the fashionable thoroughfarea. As one of the electric cars was moving along there was a sudden jar, followed by a terrific roar, The shock was very great and people in the car were ter ribly frightened. Investigation showed that the explosion was caused by a dyna mite cartridge concealed along the rail in each manner that the flange of the wheels would explode it. Search showed that seven other cartridges were placed along side the rails, but in some, manner had be come misplaced. This was fortunate, for had the cartridges exploded simultaneously no doubt the oar would have been blown to pieces and mnny of the occupants killed. The wheel that struck the cartridge was blown off the axle and the bottom of the car badly shattered. Nearly all the passen gers we e more or less severely bruised, but none of the injuries are fatal. The Cabinet Reorganized. ROME, May 12.-The new cabinet is still incomplete, but thus far the following named persons have accepted portfolios: Signor Giolitti, premier and minister of the interior; Leasve, public works: Bonacci, justice: Martini, publicinstrnection; Perazzi, trneasrer and Sonnonio, finance, The office of minister of war was offered Pel loux, but he will probably refuse to accept the portfolio. Signor Brin has taken the office of to elgn affairs. Mutilated and Massacred. CITY O. MEXICo. May 12.-A party of Maya Indians ecently captured the camp of twelve wood catters on the confines of Kelize. The Indians first tried to force the wood cutters to confers to the wherea bouts of their comrades by outting off their ears and noses, but not succeeding they killed the whole twelve. NO COLORED) BISHOP. Tile Matter not Favorably Reported.by the Committee. OrAnra. May 12.-Bishop Newman pre. sided at the session of the Methodist con ference this morning. A large number of resolutions of significance were introduced and referred. The conference then took up the discussion of constitutional revision. The matter of the constitutionality of the admlsuion of Iy doloegates to the conference was discussed pro and con at great length in ten minute speeches, considerable warmth being developd at timnes. Dr. Gouoher offered a sulastitutait knocking out nearly all the preamble in the report, and declaring that the section of law oen acted in relation to lay representation pcr took of a legislative enactment, but the |rincapal was a constitutional one. This was adopted. DI)r. Buakley moved to post ,one the matter indefinitely and be re ported by a commission at the next general conference. After a sharp wrangle the motion was carried, 2231 to 1930. The impression is gaining ground that the advocates of the scheme to elect niore bishop.s have been meeting with great sgc aess the last few days, since the scheme to relocate some of the episcoval residences orme to the front. The sub-committee to which the matter of electing a colored bishop has referred reported unfavorably. Candidates for the various oflices to be filled are working with redoubled seal as the time of looetion draws near. Dr. Good win, of Illinois, is coming to the front as a candidate for the editorship of the Central Christian Advocate. An Immoense R.servoir. PI'noaxxx, Ariz., May 12.-A company was organized to-day for the construction of one of the largest artificial roeservoirs in the wo :ld. The site taken is Box canyon, 400 yards below the junction of Tonlo creek and 'alt liver. The height of the dam will be 200 feet and backwater will extend six teen miles, to the Sterra mountains, mak ing a capacity, according to the report of the county surveyor, of 103.058.040,800 cubic feet of water. Owing to the abundance of lime rock, timber and other building mta terial on the ground the cost of building is not expected to exceed $1,5i00,0t0. The new reservoir will have a eapacity to irrlgate all lands of the Gila, Verde and Salt valleys, from the point where the water is taken eot to the Colorado river at Yuma. The en terprise is backed by New York capital. IMARCUS DALY FULLY IN IT. Some of His l.ost Horses Are to Appear on tihe Montana Circuit. In an unacconntable way circulation has been given to the report that none of the horses in the Daly stable are to appear on the Montana circuit this year. The report is entirely false, says the Anaconda Stan dard. The trotting stables under the care of Andy McDowell and Ben Kennedy, and a string of thoroughbreds which will be handled by Norman Smith, will make the Montana circuit this season and will do their level best to carry off their share pof the prizes. Yesterday Norman Smith was in Anaconda on business relating to his string. "The horses at the Daly ranch appear to be in excellent condition," said Mr. Smith, "and we expect to make a first rate snow ing thin year. The weather has been so unsettled that the stables have not been getting the usual amount of work, but we shall be in good shape just the same when the season opens. I see it announced in San Francisco newspapers that the Daly horses a:e not going into the Montana cir cuit. This is a mistake, and it ought to be corrected, as we want to have everybody understand that Montana men are going to appear with good horses, and we would like to induce eastern owners and the horsemen on the Pacific coast to come here and try it on with us. The paurses are handsome, and they ought to attract a good many owners of first class horses. Those who do come may as well under stand in advance that if they carry away anything they will have to race hard for all they get." Mr. Daly said there is no foundation for the report that his horses are not to make the circuit in this state. "On the contrary," added Mr. Daly, "we have mado all our plans to take in the Montana circuit, and the stable will fight hard in hope of making a good resord. It looks to me as if we were going to have a much more successful season this year than Montana has ever seen, and you will be surprised at the number of first-class horses that will be out. I hope that some of the best stables in California and Kentucky will be repre sented. Owners in other states will find an opportunity in Montana for contests that will be worthy of the best horses they can send." It is understood that the managers of the circuit are doing everything in their power to let outsiders know about the big induce ments offered in this state. Preparations for the season have been made on an ex tremely generous scale, and it is believed that the record for the year will be brilliant beyond precedent. St. Louis Races. ST.

Miansris, Tenn., May 12.-At noon, with impressive ceremonies, the great steel bridge across the Missippi river was for mally declared open for traftlic, in the pres ence of a creat throng of people, including distinguished visitors, state and national, from this and adjoining states. The day was obseived as a holiday and the city was in gala attire. The man-of-war Concord and river crafts of ill kinds were covered with bunting. The weather was delightful. Festivities began with an impesing street parade, including military visitors, die tingished guests, fire department, and floats illustrative of the industries of (the Misissisipi valley. When thu procession reached the bridge the ceremonies began by sending eighteen locomotives upon the structure as a test of its strength. Senator Voorhoes, of Indiana, delivered the open ina address. The Memphis bridge is the third largest of its kind in the world. IThere are five spans and six piers, including annchorag mpers. IThere is a total length of 2,597 foot ill the bridge proper. The structure is ex tended west of the main bridge by an iron viaduct 2,500 feat in length, followed by 3,100 feet of timber trestle, tand nearly a mile of embanlkment to a junction with the existina track of the Kansas City, Fort Scott & Memphis railroad, a few hundred feet west of bibley, Ark. Some idea of the Immensity of the steel parts used may be obtained by knowing that the main posts are eighty feet high and weigh twenty-eight tons. TWO OFFICIAL SCANDALS, One of Which Is Wanamaker's AC: tlon in Baltimore Civil Service Cases. The Other Relates to the Unusual Conduot of the Pension Bureau. The Postmaster General Denies, but IDoes Not Eplailn--le Respetfrally Pro tests-.Capital News, WAsAImOTON, May 12.-The committee on reform in the civil service to-day resumed investigation of the charges that certain federal employes in Baltimore violated the civil service law without incurring Iuuish ment. P'ostmaster General Wanamaker ap peared, bringing with him, at the requestof the committee, the report of the postoflice inspectors, giving the result of their inves tigation into the Baltimore postoffice. He desired to say, in view of the comment upon the time that had elapsed between the investigation and denials of the employes, that more than four months had elapsed before the commission's investigation re port reached the president, so the men had no opportunity to make earlier response to the charges. Wanamaker fuIrther said he had no disnosition to defend these men, but could not personally investigate them, and turned them over to the proper officers, and was governed by their reports. Boatner said: "It appears that these par ties were before the commission authorized to make the investigation, and admitted their guilt, but the postmaster, whose duty it was to dismiss them, took no action, and when the matter came to you (Wanamaker), instead of acting upon the confessions of parties, you instituted another investiga tion for the purpose of enabling the people to deny what they had already admitted." The postmaster general moved his hand in remonstrance while the question was being put, and then replied: "I respectfully protest against the state ment that that an investigation was insti tuted for the purpose of having the men deny the charges. It is not the truth." Raines requested that the postmaster gen eral be permitted to proceed with the state ment he had prepared, but Boatner insisted that the committee wanted light upon the point he suggested. He wished to know why the nostmaster gener al's department ignored the recommendations of the com mission, and accepted the statments of men made in exonerating themselves as havi ng greater weight than the statements they made inculpating themselves. The post master general quietly remarked that he had no information on the subject that he was not willing and anxious to lay before the committee, but denied the truth of the statement that any attempt was made to shield the men, or any unusal course pur sued. During the Raum investigation to-day, Rayburn, member of the board who ex amined the record in the claim of W. W. Dudley, said there did not appear to be anv recent medical evidence on file in the case upon which the last certificate was issued. Dr. Ingraham, medical referee of the bureau, also examined the record and found no sufficient medical evidence. He did not think the case took the usual course through the office. The claim was allowed during the time Tanner was commissioner. There was a slip in the record, it not stating the exact location of the amputation, and ex pressing the opinion that the case came within the act of Aug. 4, 1886. House Proceedings. WASHINGTON, May 11.-The house com mittee on judiciary reported a substitute for the Watson Pinkerton detective investi gation resolution. The substitute directs the committee on judiciary to investigate the Pinkerton detectives, the character of their employment by corporations engaged in the transportation of interstate com merce or United States mails: the number so employed; whether such employment provoked breach of the peace or caused the destruction of property.

Holman hoped the increase would not be made, anid after some disoussion Iteed's amendment was rejected. The Republic of Cubs. WAsmnIcOToN, May 12.-In the senate Call offered a resolution which was referred to the committee on foreign relations, re questing the president to open negotiations with the government of Spain for the pur pose of inducing that government to con sent to the establishment in the island of Cuba of a free and independent eepublic, such consent to be giyen on the payment by Cuba to Spain of enoh a sum of money as is| equivalent, both to the value of public property belonging to ,,pain in the island, and the relinquishment of her sovereign tight; also for the negotiation of a t'eaty to secure such material commercial ad vantages as may be agreed upon. Iu the Senate. WASHINGTON, May 12.-In the senate to day Hiscock introduced a bill admitting the steamer City of China, of the Pacific Mail Steamehip line, to American registry on terms similar to those on which the City of Paris and City of New York had been admitted. The president's message on the subject of an international ti-metallic oun feruoe was taken up, and Peffer addressed the senate, declaring the conviction that if voters who favored free silver would com bine the result would anrely be enoceeeful. 'rhe naval appropriation bill was then taken up and discussed. Helena Post 11111 Approved.

New Yoau, May 12.-The funeral of Will iam Astor was conducted with great sim plicity at Trinity church to-day. Up in picturesque Trinity come tery, far from the gaze of the public and over looking the Hud son river, is the tomb of William Astor. It is a strangely con structed vault that rises from the rolling bit of ground like a half-sunken tur reted castle, and only the cur roundings en lighten one as to WILrraMA ANTpm. its character. In front of it are the heavily barred iron doors which might stand for the portcullis of this ancient uit of architecture. Thus far the remains of but one member of the family lie in the tomb. It is the body of Mrs. Emily Van Allen, the daughter of the late William Astor, and during the past week workmen had been busily engaged prepar ing the vault for the reception of the re mains of the father, the man whose name the vault bears. Trinity cemetery is located at One Hun dred at Fifty-fifth street and Tenth avenue and is an adjunct of the famous Trinity in the heart of the city. Is is as different from that acre of weather-beaten tom b atones as the lapse of time since it ceased to be of use would lead one to imagine. The new cemetery is a great aggregation of magnificent vaults. Here and there a mon ument rises or a gravestone rears its mod est head, but the path to the Astor tomb leads by vault after vault, each vieing with the other in magnificence, and the names sound familiar to those who have read the inscriptions, fast wearing out, in the older churchyard. Just now the new cemetery is donning its brightest of spring garments. The ivy on the great bridge that leads over the boule vard, from one part of the cemetery to the other, is beginning to sprout, and many a tomb is hidden between the already thick foliage of the artistically arranged trees and shrubberies. Thousands of early flowering plants are spreading their per fume over all, and the novel vari-colored garden mounds look their prettiest. Among the members of the Astor family at the church and at the tomb were Mrs. William Astor, the widow; Mr. and Mrs. E. 8. Willing, the father and mother of Mrs. John Jacob Astor; Mr. and Mrs. John Jacob Astor, Mrs. Coleman Drayton, who accompanied her mother from Paris to this city; Mrs. Orme Wilson, Mrs. James R. Roosevelt, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Messrs. Lord, Day, Kissam, Cruger and Dr. Morgan Dix. The will of Mr. Astor will probably be offered for probate to-morrow. The value of the estate is estimated at from $30,000, 000 to $50,000,000. The widow receives, in addition to the annuity settled on her at her marriage, the Fifth avenue and Newport houses, and their furni ture. etc., with an annuity of $50,000. From his individual estate, Astor also gives nearly $1,500,000 in trust funds to be divided among three grandchrl'r eu bearing the family name of Van Allen. His daughters, Mrs. R'oosevelt and Mrs. Wilson, e a c h receive trust estates for life of $840,000, with the use of houses in Filth avenue. A trust fund of $850,000 isdivided among the four children of Mrs. J. Cole m an Drayton. About $200,000 is given to chari table institu tions or private roHN JAcOB ASTOR. individuals. The rest of the individual property is given in trust for life to John Jacob Astor. The son receives practically the whole of the estate, except about $6, 000,000. COL. W. W. DE LACY DEAD. A Welo Known Old Timer Crosses the Range This Morning. Col. Walter W. De Lacy, than whom there is no old timer in Montana better known or more respected, died about one o'clock this morning at St. Pe ter's hospital, where he had been ill for some weeks. Col. DeLaey was very old e.t the time of his death and very feeble. though none of his friends or acquaintances know his exact age.

In 1870 he contracted for the survey of the public lands, and the following year with twenty-four men surveyed a route down the Salmon river, passing through the seem ingly impossible rapids without losing a alan. lie soon after returned to HIelena and had sine' been engaged in surveying. The past few year.a he has been in the our veyor general's office. Col. D) Lacy is the mals who surveyed that palt of the state which is now the C ow reservation. iBLAINE FELL I)DOWN. The Secretary Meets a Mishap at a Straw berry Festival. WAsuiNu'roN, May 12.-Secretary Blaine attended a strawberry festival in the north western part of the city this afternoon and came near mooting with a serious accident. While approaching a large pavillion in which the greater number of guests had gathered, he stepped on a nar row elevated boarded walk running along the driveway to groet some frlolde. Among the ladies was Mina Leiter, who, selecting a red rose bud from a cluster at her belt, fastened it in the lapel of his oeat.

Extent of the Damage Not Known, but Thought to Be Small. The Mills Again Start Up and Things Go on as Usual-Other Mon tana News. MAInYvII.Lr, May 12.-[Specinal.1-The fire in the Dram Lummond mine is under control. Yesterday morning it was found possible to reach the mouth of the shaft. A little smoke was coming up and the water was kept running. The floor of the station had been nearly burned away and one post of the gallows frame, a timber 28x88 inches, was burned through. The engine was un. injured except by smoke and water. The damage to the shaft cannot yet be deter mined, but is only partial. The mills, which were shut down in consequence of all available water being thrown into the mine, started up at seven o'clock this morning. As a precautionary measure a stream of water from a four inch hose is still running into the shaft, bit at this hour, 10 p. m., no smoke is coming up, and it is believed that the fire is extinguished except in one isolated pump station below. The mine is rapidly being cleared of smoke. The bulkheads are removed and things are assuming their normal appear ance. Work on the Pacific Extenslon. KALIS'PELL, May 12. -[Special.]- En gineer Armstrong, of the Great Northern. who is in charge af the tracklaying, was in the city yesterday. He says that three miles of track are being laid every day, the end of the track being several miles west of the Pend d'Oreille bridge. He says the work is being pushed with great rapidity for some particular purpose-evidently for the early establishment of a passenger ser vied. When asked if the roadbed was in shape for a passenger service, Mr. Arm strong said that by the time the track reached Spokane the road would be in shape. Two steam shovels and several crews of men are employed in surfacing and ballasting west of here. It is highly probable that a through passenger service will be inaugurated from St. Paul to the coast by June 1. Mltisoula Board of Trade.
