THREE DESPERATE MEN.
The Shooting of the PollUt6Ean Only Orre of-a Series of Outrages. John Swendeon Fatally beaten and Robbed Earlier in the Night, *be Country Belng seonaed for the l.ep Who Committed the Aete-An E3x itiesr Chase. The shooting of Pollceman Seharren. 1roich early yesterday morning seems tc have been the culmination of a night ol desperate crime on the part of thenmehs in, terested. About half past six o'clock .t Sunday night John RweadLson, who had been employed on the works at the Wioket tunnel, came into the Montana Central depot. From there it is not known exaetly where he went, but about 10 o'olook he found himself in the vicinity of the gal works. There three men met him. One ol them askled him for a match, and at the same time grabbed him by the throat, the other two men then took a hand in the assault, and throwing Swendson on hi: back, went through his pockets, taking what money he had, $17 in all. They left their victim senseless in the loi and Lhe lay there fully six honur before he came to his senses When he did so he half crawled and hall dragged himself across the bridge to the side of the gas house, where he was found aboat daybreak by the oorhpany's men, who were going to work. At first they thought it was a drunken man who had laid down there to sleep off the effects of e debauch. But as soon as they realized that Swendson was badly hurt they tele phoned to police headquarters for help Sergeant Callahan went down with a haek, but Swendson suffered such pain sitting nu that it was thought better to get ai wagon The sergeant drove bacnk up town, sent Dr. tarbour to the gas house to attend the in jured man, and followed with a wagon and a mattress. The doctor decided to send Swendson to St. Peter's hospital, where he was given every possible attention. Thrre were no external signs of vio lence excopt a slight scar on the face, though Swendson suffered terribly about the body. He became so much worse during the day that Cblinty Attorney Nolar was summoned to take his dying statement Swendson told all he knew, which was aboun as related above, but would furnish no.de pqription of hib assailants. Drs. Barbous Rhid Treacy examined him and thought hie condition such that he was not likely tc live through the night. Swendson himsell seemed to realize that he was dying, bul the county attorney decided, after hearing his story, that a last statement of the oa eurrence from him would not be of much use in any possible trial, and therefore thought it best not cause the sufferer the pain that would be entailed by an ante. mortem declaration. The injuries to the body were undoubtedly caused by the as sailants jumping on their victim after they had him down. Swendson died at 12:11 this morning. Before the news of the affair at the gee house reached the police there was a repo 1 that three men had robbed another of $7f in a saloon uptown. Descriptions of the men believed to have done the job were furnished to all the officers on duty, and they were ordered to look out tor the sus pected people. When the orders reached Policeman Sharrenbroich, about three o'clock in the morning, he was told that three men answering the descriptions furnished had gone toward the Atlantic beer hall on North Main street, just below Sixth avenue. His beat is on Main etreel from Broadway to Sixth avenue. He callea Policeman Carlson, on whose beat the saloon is, and together they went into the place. Three young men were reated at the eating bar, apparently waiting for an order to be filled. They were plaeood und arrest, and officers and prisones s started up Main. street toward the city jail. Shar renbroich walked ahead with two of the men, and Carlson followed with the other, One of the men in the front low asked what they were arrested for, Shatrenbroich told him they woulu find out at police headquarters, rnd if they were not the men wanted they ould be let go. While crossing Broadway Policeman loharroubroich happened to glance around and seaw the man behind fumbling about his pocket. Thinking the fellow might have a revolver and use it, he halted a moment, took hold of the man behind and pushed him forward with his companions. Just as the men had gotten on to the sidewalk at Parehen's drug store, the man who had been so anxious about the cause of the arrest, and who was on the side nearest the gutter, half turned, and aith his right hand pushed a revolver under his left arm and fired back. The bullet struck Scharrenbroich in the right shoul der. and the policeman, who had his right hand on his revolver in his overcoat pocket. found himself helpless, and he could not raise his arm. As he staucered back his assailant jumped out into Main street anud fired two mo:e shots, neithoer of which took effeet. All threeprisonr.s then started on a run down Main etreet. Policeman Carlson had been taken by surprise and did not seem to know just what to do. Insetead of firing at the men as soon as Scharrenbroich wasshot, as his superiors think he should, he backed off -nd allowed the men to get a good start be fore he attempted to follow. 'Then, when the men had scattered he fired several shots at them. One of the shots, he thinks, hit. When the prisoners scattered, one, of them ran up Broadway and turned into Jackeon street. The two others kept down Main street. Near Grand street Policeman Martin, who has charge of the night squad during Marshal Galvin's absence, was walking along on the west side of Main street. The noisoof the shots antd the sight of the fleeing men told him at once that something wras wrong, and he started for them. The men, to avoid him, turned into Grand street. The ofier pursued, firing his revolver at them on the run. Carleson had now joined in the chase, as had Policeman Tracy whose beat is on upper Main street. Arriving nt nJackson street the men turned the corner etchbing up with their companlon, who had run upn B3roadway. All three now made trucks down Jaekeon street tower!d Sixth avenue. Policeman Martin followed, and as he turned the corner, one of the men caught at a telegraph pole, swung around it and took a shot at the offilers. The bullet struck Martin's over coat and fell into his pocket. At ,ixth avenue the fugitives turned toward War. ron, one of them running towar d the Loakey block and the otheors keeping on up the hill. Some of those who saw the pur suer and the pu-sued say that one of the former dived into the basement of the Lookey building. Others think he made across the open lots there. Thie others, however, turned into Warren street and were there lost sight of. Near the telegraph pole where the man turned to shoot at Marr tin a spot of what resembled blood was found later on, indicating that this one, at least, had been hit by one of the bullets, even it not seriously hurt. Policeman Seharrenbroioh had mean time been taken to the city hall and Dr. V. C. Height examined and dressed his wound, The bullet had entered the right shoulder high up and gone backward, shat taring the collar bone. Later the wounded Officer was taken Ito his room on Water streeoot, where during the day the doctor succeeded in extracting the bullet and also took out several pieces of the shattered bone. The wound chosed him great pain, but it is not thought that it will reasult in any permanent injury. He was able to give an account of the affair and a dee. cription of the three, men. His story agrees with the faoots Riven above. "M only rearet," he said, "is that he didn't hit me in the left shoulder initead of the _ight, as then my right hand would have been of na. end I could have shot too. As it wa I couldn't reach around to my right hand coat pocket.

'At the trains were w1toied # well rel; il th avenues of greOdA fP tlalb . city. At' dilve station, on the Great Northern railroad, it was learned that two men had walked into the place and taken an east-bound freight train, A telegram was sent to Great Falls to stop them. Word was also sent to other places that could be reached by telegraph to stop the men if they showed up. Some of the pollacemen, however, think the men did not leave Helena, but thai they are concealing themselves somewhere about town. evr serl men were arrested during the day on suspicion, but it was apparent that none of them were the parties wanted. The three are all described as young men of 21 or 22 years, fairly well dressed. The wounded policeman, Pete Soharren brolob, is the finest looking specimen of a man on the Helena force or that of any other city. He is over siex feet tall and built in proportion, and has avery military appearance. He had served in the German army before coming to this oonrtty. He is known to be a careful and at the same time courageous officer. Swedeopu, the first victim of the trio, was a man of about 50 years. He has a brother, Gustav Bwendson, living at Allentown, Ill.

ADVERTISING THE NORTHWEST. How the Publications of the Railroads Do the Great Work. TnE INDEPEaNDENT has called attention a number of times to the handsome adver tising matter in the shape of folders, re ferring to this section, gotten out this year by the passenger department of the North era Pacific railroad. That their merit is appreciated in the. east as well as in the west, is proved by the following, taken from the Railway and Investors Guide, published in Philadelphia: Nothing, per haps, of the same nature, published any where in the world attracts more general attention oris moregenerally complimented than the descriptive folders and other ad vertising matter gotten out each year under the direction of Chas. B. Fee, gen eral passenger and ticket agent of the Northern Paoifio railroad, The most interesting subjects along the line of the great roads are not the only ones treated in these publicationst a great deal of instructive matter, touching upon the resources. commercial importance and general topooraphy of the country, is worked into them in a way to make them not a bit less interesting to the hasty casual reader. They are never anything else than models of neatness, and are usually nots bles example of the urinter's, lithograph er's and engraver's arts. The expense of publishing the hundreds of thousands of these folders required to supply the North ern Pacific's scores of agencies must be enormous-and expense is evidently not spared in their preparation. Mr. Fee and his assistants have displayed exceptional ability in the latest issue, for the season of 1892. This includes very handsome litho graph folders, describing respectively the Yellowstone National park, eastern Wash ington, western Washington, Alaska, and the Broadwater hotel and natatorium at Helena,, All of these have finely executed colored maps on the reverse, and are alto gethe' possibly the costliest ever gotten up for free distribution by a railroad company or any other corporation. The Great Not thern, also, is distributing all over toe globe advertising matter relat ing to the northwest. That it reaches the most remote points is shown by a letter General Passenger Agent Whitney received a few days ago. It had been in transit since March 30 and well illustrates the far reaching effects of the extensive railroad advertising this northwestern country is receiving. The letter is dated at Cape Coast, Africa, March 30. and in its gram matical construction it is a trifle bewilder ing. The full text is as follows: Dear Sir:-As advertised in the Minne sota Weekly newspaper of January, this year, of the matchless qualities of the goods of your extensive department, I am Induced to accelerate writing for samples of your firm.

A Jefferson County Miner From Radereburg the Original Disooverer. Good Reports From the Elkhorn and Do Lamar-The Mlocan Lake Boom " ioulder Distriet. The latest intelligence from the new gold mining distrioct on Sand creek confirms the richness and extensiveness of the And men tioned in ohr last week's issue, says the Pony Monitor. John A. Pashley, of R. dersburg, Jefferson county, the original discoverer of the lead, came to town on Monday and recorded three locations on the lead and one placer location. He had previously recorded the original discovery called the Good Friday. His subsequent locations are upon the same lode, one about a half mile, called the Chile. Here is found the greatest outcrop of quartz to be seen anywhere upon the lead. This prospect has been opened by cute in three places, to a depth of five to ten feet, disclosing quartz from one foot to twenty inches in width, in - almost every plece of which is seen gold in coarse colorsl the spar not escaping a lib eral sprinkling of the precious stuff. Nc assays have as yet been made, but in thin character of quartz they are not necessary to establish the value of the find. The rat and mortar show its worth as a free milling gold ore. Estimates of mill men vary at to the amount per ton, some placing it aF low as fifty, others as high as $150. With out exception, all admit, its merits are suffi clent to justify the claims of its owner, that he has discovered the best poor man's lead in this section. The Good Friday lead, where the original discovery was made, is opened by several shafts, the deepest being eleven feet, in the bottom of which the ore is about sixteen inches in width, of the same general char aster as the Chile, The remaining shafts all showing ore apparently increasing in width as depth is gained. The lead is readily traced on the surface from the bluffs on Willow creek westerly to the Jefferson river above Bapplington, a dis tance of five mille, and the entire length has been located. The formation is gran ite, and the limestone does not approach the lead nearer than one-half mile on the north. Numerous other discoveries and locations have been made in the same neighbbrhood that promises well for their owners, but sufficient work has not been done upon any of them to warrant an opinion as to their value. About fifty men are now upon the grounds prospecting and making locations. The weather, since the discovery has been known to the public, has been unfavorable for work, but with a cessation of the snow and an otportunity given the locators to open their claims, we think another week will enable us to chronicle results that will open the eyes of all as to the value of the lowlands lying between this main range and the Jefferson and Madison rivers, as a great field for the prospector. ELKHORN AND DR LAMAR. Report of the Work Done During .th Mronth of March. Assistant Manager C. A. Molson, in hit report of the operations of the Elkhorr company for March, shows that the ex penses were $25,529, the receipts $58,788 and the profits $33,259. As to the condition of the mine, he says it is looking bettel than ever before, and that everything if running smoothly. No work was done dur ing the month on the 1,250-foot level, bul on the 1,150 there are seven feet of ore, in place, assaying thirty-five to forty ounces. On the 1,050 no work was done during the month, while on the 950 level south the dia mond drill shows from three to four feet o1 dry ore, assaying sixty ounces. There are bunches of high grad, ore on this level. Prospecting was continued in the 1,850 foot north drift during the month, and on April 1 was in 129 feet. This. drift has not shown any mineral, but the face is said to be looking more favorabl% The 1,350 foot level south on April 1 was in 405 feet. On the last day of the month, at a point 398 feet from the shaft, the north end of the main ore chute was met with. The average value of the ore for a width of four feet was fifty-twc ounces, no lead being present. From the point at which the ore was struck, the value of the lode kept increasing as the drift ad vanced, and the character changed from dry silicious to high grade smelting ore, assaying from 175 to 200 ounces per ton, and carrying from 10 per cent to 25 per cent lead. The widest piace in the drift is eight feet and no footwall in sight. April 7 the d ift was in 434 feet, and the breast shows a fine body of milling ore, assay ing 106 ounces and 2 5-10 per cent lead. Tie p.oofof the extension of the high grade ore met with on the 1,250 foot loevel to the 1,850 foot level-a distance of 148 feet from rail to rail-is very gratifying, sayes the reovert, and, as the character of thile ore is practically unchanged, we have the same prospects ahead of us for the next lift (1,450 foot level) that we had for the 1,850 foot. Manage.- Plummer, in his repo t for March on thile De Lamar, says the output was $092,605.15, the expenses, $41,604.99, and the esiimated profits, $50,740.16. Thle mine is looking well, the weather fine and the snow disappearing very fast. STIIKE ON TIlE TIGER. One of the Finest Showinars Ever Struck In lhe Belt Mlulltlllls. Late Thursday afternoon the Loretta Miuing company at:oak a body of ore on the contiet in the Tiger that will run very high in silver and promises to be of very large extent, says the tibelt Mountain Miner. Somne two weeks aego the superis tendent, M. J. Dunn. started a force of men in the tunnel which wae theb in '00 feet, running parallel with the contact. A cross-cut was completed to the contact,. some twenty feet, and teen a deviation .of the tunnel run to strike the contact ahoad. After going in about twenty-five feet they struck ore at the bottom of the face of the tunnel, and it has ikest increas ing until it is now the entile height of tlh tunnel, and at unknown depth below. The vein hlas a pitch otf abont forty-five degrree so that it is now about five feet wide at the bottom nid pIehaps two at the top. The footwall has not ,sbeen reachunobod as they tre not wholly in to the contact as yet, so that the entire width is unknown. It is ex pected that when they get in about on more sot of timbers they will ie right on the contact and can tell more about its ex tent. The air in the vein is not as pure as is desired and the company will put in at fen and air pipe to purify it. A road is also being built to the mine by the owners. It is expected that other owners in that locality will aid, but Mr. Dunn says: "We will not wait for trem." About twenty tons of ore have already been taken out, and are stolod in the ore house. The Loretta company is composed of Milwaukee capitalists, two of whomn, Mes ara. Foley and tulliven, were out here about two weeks ago. They stated that it was the intention of the company to push development work as rapidly as possible.
