Below is given a synopsis of the i 't n a dispatch from Washington, 1ig as follows: deelion was to-day gives in the United tes oort in favor of Mary Bardon in a 8 t between her and the Northern Pacific ~ road company to determine title to s la i Wiseonsin, Mrs. Bardon held the d under a pre-emption claim and the S ro company maintained that she it merely as the trustee of the com * By the admlssions of counsel it was that the lands lay within the place itlof the Northern Pacifico railroad and S ttitle would pass to it unless excepted the grant by facts admitted by etnew el on both sides. These facts were that prior to the grant one James Robinson settled upon the land as a quali :ed pre-emptor. The pre-emption entry i~es in aourse of completion when the grant to the Northern Pacific was made, and this took the lands out of the public domain gad prevented interest in them passing to the eompany under the granting act. The pre-emption entry of Robinson was subse iaeatly cancelled, and as the cancellation ý*eek place subsequently to the location of `ibh read by the Northern Pacific, the ques aro. e did that cancellation make the lnids a part of the public domain subject to the grant to the Northern Pacific. The rt answers this question in the negative. de that the land was severed from the of the public domain and that the aent easeallatien would not restore to th. publie domain so as to relate back to the grant to the Northern Pacific, but only make it a part of the public domain tar qa concerned acts passed after can ~ tio.. Mrs. Bardon's title, acquired r eoaillation. is, therefore, affirmed tihtee reversed, with directions to igmi the bill. AT: . VALUABLE LAND. drat Adjonlalg MXo n Park Wanted ' by Several People. Sthe past few days the local land of a been engaged in hearing a ease involves property valued at about 000. The ase is entitled H. M. Blais vs. M. Meadows, B. F. Piatt, Mary ackman, E. W. MeNeal and the North jaiie 'railroad. The property in it'fhe a6 swt. sea swK, nwk sei. 17 abut two miles from the house, anloining the McLean Park party on the south. The history of the n est the land is an interesting one, dates back to 1868. In that year Je cme S. Glick filed his declaratory state aent for the west half and the southeast uar t f the southwest quarter. In 1869 Wallace also filed his declaratory a.at for the west half of the southeast of the came section. In 1870 H. C. a."d made a filing and in 1881 A. H. Beattie a mineral application for the , te land. E. W. MoNeal entered land under the homestead l! 1890, and contested Beattie's spltion, and the latter's flling was can A. . t Comly made a try for the i nd in 1883. His entry was canceled by isnhmsnt in 1887, and the same year toed it as a homestead. In 1887 this os canceled for relinquishment. In I. F. oots made a homestead en try en the same land. In 1888 G. W. McNeal 'aado a homestead entry for the north half :i the sontheast quarter. In September, ,`8,S. M. Meadows made a homestead en en for the sontheast quarter of the south west quarter, but this land having been se easted by the Northern Pacific railroad, the leand office sent the application to the general land oie for consideration. The local e·lsers wer. directed to order alhear lag for the purpose of ascertaining the sta.us of the land July, 6, 1882, the date of the definite location of the railroad. 'The seolt of the hearing was that the local 'land ofileers decided that the land was ex e.pted from the grant to the railroad by the subsisting claim of H. M. Blaisdell, July 6, 1882. The company appealed to the general land offies,butbefore theappeal oameup,the railroad applied for a rehearing before the land offine. In 1890 Blaisdell made application at the Helena land office to make a homestead entry for the n sw 3, se 3 sw M and the nw, 3 so 3. This appilcation was re jecated, for the reason that the railroad eompany had seleeted the n , sw ! and so 3 of the sw 3, while the n ¾, of the se 3 had been homesteaded by ;E. W. Mo Neal, and the so 3 of the sw ! by S. M1. Meadows. T'hen Bllaisdell filed a notice of contest against Meadows. tieNeal and the contest against Meadows, MicNeal and the Northern Pacific, alleging that he made a settlement on the land in 1874. as a home stead. He places the value of his improve ments at $600, alleged that he was thae lirat settler on the land, that dloNeal and Meadows settled there against his protest, and that he had never abandoned the claim. Also that he had r, sided continuously upon the land sine 1874. He also alleged that prior to 1881 he had fully complied with the homestead lIaws; that in 1874 he applied to the land office to make a homestead entry, but was refnsed; that supposing the railroad company had a right to the land, and the company having published an offer to sell the land, he made a written ofer April 10, 1882, of $411; fur ii. This was refused and the company threat ened ejectment. In 1884 Blaisdell brought suit in the United States district court to comuel the company to receive the money and issue him a deed. 'This suit is now pending. Prior to Blaisdell's notice of conteet, is. F. Piatt made an application to enter the land, which was rejected; then Mary E. Jackman filed a notice of conteat against the North ern Pacific railroad for the n X of the sw K" This was also rejected. Blaisdell's laim confliets with all the others. In his I salt in the United States court against the Northern Pacific he alleges he settled in 1874 upon the north half of the southeast quarter and the west half of the southeast quarter. In the hearing in the case be tween Meadows and the railroad company his testimony was that his land comprised the north half of the southwest quarter, the southeast quarter of the southwest quar ter and the northwest quarter of the south east quarter. All the parties save Mead ows asked for a rehearing and it was ranted. It has now been adjourned till June 9, in order to receive material wit eseeo. ' blos waists in large variety just re - te.

Drow*'e Iltestratest Descrlption of tin Pasmoes National Park A large audiene was at Ming's opera bou: last night to accompany G. 'I. Brown on I tour through the National park. Many inthi audleace had been to Wonderland ant were competent critics. The expressiao of approval from them clearly showed the Mr. Brown has mastered his subject. H has spent Ave years in the park preparlul his lecture, which is illustrated by 15 large stereopticona views. The pictures of toh boiling springs and the epouting geyeon are wonderfully natural. The audisa is broughbt at one point to the edgeo o large crater, with its boiling water about i burst out to the height of 280 feet. Thi effect is so true to nature that a sense o0 awe comes over the onlooker. The lecture in elear English conveys at excellent idea of the location of this mar velous piece of the globe, its character. beauty, and the cause of the wondarfu phenomena in the awe-inspiring action ol its tholeands of geysers. The descriptions are not filled with seientifio tortes, whiot makes them intensely interesting to th: young folks. Mr. Brown and his audienot sta, t on their journey by leaving the care at Cinnabar and journeying in coaches tot oight miles to the Mammoth iHot bpring-s passing up and through a portion of th canyon of the Gardner river. one of the most picturesque streams to be found on tihe continent. Three minutes' walk from the springs brings one to the base of the terraces, where stands a prominent monu ment of past ages, the Liberty Cap. This ourious monument has been a puzzle to all tourists as to its isolation and opposite for mation to its entire surroundings. The pools on the terraces are next seen with their varying colors of deep blue, green, or anue, amber and lavender. The hot spring material after undergoing changes becomes travertine, of which character of rook mostly all of ancient Rome was built. Electric P'eak is dese ibeu. It is so named from the immense amount of iron in the upper portion which causes the lightning to play about its summit at every storm. Sepulcher mount and other sky piercing peaks come next. Then Obsidian cliff, a gigantic oases of volcanic glass. the Norris geyser basin, Virginia cascade, Gibbon canyon, Gibbon Falls, Lower Geyser basin, the Paint ]Pots, Fountain geyser, Great Fountain. Midway Geyser basin, Hell's Half Acre, Excelsior, and Prismatic lake. Next is the upper geyser basin, the largest group in existence, emblacing an area of two equare miles. Beautiful Yellowstone lake is illustrated from every point. ' he Grand canyon is first seen from the summit of Mt. Washburne, and then a journey is made down the canyon, with stops at every picturesque spot. At Inspi ration point the finest wall of the canyon is aeeo. Amethyst mountain, studded with beautiful specimens of amethysts in the hollow petrified trees, is shown in a large view. Mr. B own will leave in a few days for the coast and then make a trip through out the east. Rhea. May A2 and i8. The comedy which Rhea will present dur ing her engagement in this city is a clever translation f om the French of "Danmo niar," and those who prefer Rhea in com-n edv will have a chance to see her in a truly wonderful characte-. The comedy situa tions of "Gossip" turn on the garrulous qualities of a society countess in Parisian life, whose tendency to gossip, which she exercises at the slightest provocation, causes a seemingly inextricable entangle ment, in which she suffers as well as erery body connected. The first scene of the comedy takes place at the residence of Monsieur Chatelard, in a chateau near Paris, during a reotution given by his wife. An innocent flirtation which she has heard repeated goes through that metamorphosis not uncommon to simple tales and becomes the means of causing trouble. Monsieur Chatelard, who takes his holiday when his wife holds receptions, is about starting off to enjoy the pleasure, when- a young friend confides to him the secret that he is going to get married and tells the incident of his con-ting. The man of ex perience warns him to keep it a secret, for while it is harmless in itself, should is become known to* parties through other hands it might be misconstrued to his det riment. lie liar ioulnirlywarrls him against the coontess, and while lie is doing so, she makes her appeeranea and details it to the whole company. The comedy is full of makes her appearance and details it to the whole company. The comedy is full of bright points, and will give any audience much pleasure. It had a great suceses in the cities of Chicago, Phliadelphie, Cleve land and Pittsburgh, and tie critics vied with one another in saytin that Ithea was a revelation in comedy.
