IXEO- SUIT SUSPENDED,
.e Greenhood, Bohm & Co. Assign. ment Case Postponed Until Next November. nit Against the Montana sen tral Railway Company for $80,000 Damages. hmldt Says He Was Run into by a areless Locomotive Engineer Near Cascade. The suit in conversion of Max Kahn, as gghee, vs. Jefferis, sheriff, was resumed esterday before Judge Hunt. Judge Book iso sat by invitation of Judge Hunt. The urt having considered the defendants' otion to permit them to open and close he ease, made the following ruling: With ut positively deciding the question, we are elined to the opinion that the affirmative efense of defendhnts is upon the equitable ide of the court, and that under the plead e the equitable relief asked by the de endantshould entitle defendant's motion to revaill but we are clearly of the opinion hat to proceed on this theory would em arrase and comilioate the trial of this snit. f the contention of plaintiff's is correct, hen a general verdict would be rendered. judgment would probably not settle the min question to be tried. This would be neatisfactory to the court in determining he ultimate question to be litigated, is.: the validity of the suignment of reenhood, Bohm & Co. to Max Kahn. To ry the issues where the trial of the equit ble ones would finally adjust all the rights f many parties, seems to us to be in the nterest of justice and of all concerned. It appears to us, therefore, that instead of iYing defendants in this case the affirma ive, we should suspend the trial of this nixed suit, eliminate the question of value, nd proceed at once to try the equitable nit of the Merchant's National bank vs. reenhood. Bohm & Co,. where suit is rought by the bank in behalf of itself and 1 other creditors, to the end that under he plastic hand of equity the court may etter adjudicate the rights of the parties laiming by and under'this assignment. The order is therefore that the jury in this cause be excused, the cause continued until the issues in the equitable suit are heard and determined, the costs to abide further order of the court, and that the suit of the Merchants National Bank vs. Kahn et al be immediately called unless the de fendants therein move the court for further time. The jury were then discharged and the equitable suit called. Judge Baeh, of counsel, announced that the defendants were not ready, whereupon, by consent, the cause was continued until Nov. 14 next. At that time the Merchants National bank will undertake to prove their allegations of fraud in the assignment, while the op posite parties will seek to sustain the instrument and the preferences it gives. FIFTY THOUSAND. Suit Against the Montana Central Rall way for Damages. George Haldorn, of Butte, and C. W. Fleischer, of Helena, filed a suit in the dis trict court yesterday against the Montana Central railway company for William Schmidt, a fencemaker who was in the em ploy of the company last September. He alleges that he was riding on a handoar -about three miles south of Cascade when a locomotive came around a curve at a high rate of speed. Schmidt jumped off and was run over by the handcar. He says the engineer did not give any warning of the approach of the engine and thus the com pany is liable. Schmidt save he is per manently injured and cannot make a liv ing. Before the accident he says he could make $100 per month as a cook. He asks for $50,000 damages. To Foreclose a Lien. E. L.

Man's Dead one Made His 'eortuae. iosaox., July 18.-A daily newspaper in loeton had on its editorial staff a young graduate of iarvard University, whose parents reside in WaIbham, Mass. The young editor wrote well, and his review at tracted the atteption q( the older literary men of Boston and the DLeighborhood. An occasion arose for sending the young gen. tleman to Montreal for a piece of. news paper work. He went these and registered tt the St. Lawenaoe hotsel. He had been there but a few hours tihen he noticed that he was closely watched by a gentlematu older than himself, who seemed to be stay inn in the hotel. Before his first evening war passed he was surprised to receive a card bearing his own name from a gentle- I man who waited an interview below. The gentleman was asked to come to his room and proved to be the same one who hbed watched the young man in the ofice of the hotel. He at once explained his reason for calling. He said he was a member of the English Parliament on a visit to Canada. He had lost a son by death to whom the oung manI from Boston bore a striking resem blance, and his interest in him had been in- I creased by finding their names to be iden tical,. e inquired concerning the young man's family and all about him. The re sult was that he gave the Boston boy an or. i gent invitation to come to England as his guest, at the same time expressing a desire to make the acquaintance of his parents. He at once accepted an invitation to visit Waltham and meest them. So pressing was his request that the young man should return with him to Lon don that it was complied with at the ear liest possible moment. Taking with him letters of introduction to a number of lit erary men in England, the young editor sailed for that country, and in the space of a few weeks found himself possessed of a valuable acquaintance among some of the most important people of the old country. Among others whom he met were the Walter family, the proprietors of the London Times. One of the ladies of the family took a special interest in him, and this is not st ange, for he was a man of attractive person and manners. Through her active instrumentality an offer was soon made to him of employment in the Times office. This came to him unex pected and undesired, and be was dis posed to refuse it. He was urged to ascept, however, and was told that it would be easy for him after spending a feu months in the home office in London to go abroad on some desirable duty for the paper. He accepted the offer, and after a few months was sent to Paris with independent author ity and under circumstances every way most agreeable. He is not a subordinate of the noted De Blewitz, but acts as a spe cial commissioner from the editor of the Times in Paris. This brings him into rela tions with the highest functionaries, and it is doubtful if any one connected with the paper has ever held a mpre important and responsible place on its staff. From the time he left Boston for Mon treal this young man's destiny seemed to have been shaped for him by influences over which he had no control whatever. His name is W. M. Fullerten, and every word of what has been written about him is stated by one of his personal friends, to whom he told the story in Paris last year. COMING ATTRACTIONS. A production of unusual magnitude will be given at the opera house next Thursday and Friday evenings, Lincoln J. Carter's superb seenio melodrama, "The Fast Mail." As its name indicates, it deals largely with the railroad and its incidents, but it pre sents an abundance of effects that are dar ing in their magnitude and admirable in their execation. The steamboat is said to be a wonder of clever conception and mas terly meehanical work, and the railroad scene, with its trains going at a terrific rate of speed, makes the stage seem like a piece of reality. The Niagara falls scene is won derfully beautiful, and, it may safely be said, is more eltborate than anything of the kind ever before attempted in this city. There are a multitude of minor effects that contribute to make the performance a rev elation of realism. The whistles, bells and splashing are heard as the boat leaves the wharf. The sonads that tell us of an ap proaching train herald the approach of the freight and the fast mail train-the latter rushing by with people gazing from the windows at the heroine who has just savel her lover's life by fastening a letter to tle mail pouch. The roaring of Niagara falls is heard and the mist that rises from it is shown vividly. The play is under the per sonal direction of L, J. Carter, the author. The cast is said to be a capable one. The play is startling at times in the intensity of its elimaxes, and these, when presented with all the effects of the Intricate stage settings, bring the interest to a degiee that is rarely attained, even in the melodrama. A large number of people are employed in the production, which is in many partien lars plainly the result of care and skill com Mrs. Tom Thumb Coming. The Dramatic Star, Seattle, Wash., June 25, 1862, says: Mrs. Gen. Tom Thumb and the Liliputians closed a very successful en gagement at the opera house Friday eve ling, having played two evenings, includ ing two matinees, and when it came to counting the receipts they proved to be the strongest drawing card that has appetaed in this city for some time past, and we doubt very much if there Is another at traction that could d:aw as large matinees as these talented little folks. The perform anne is a most plensing one and is espec ially attractive to children. Mrs. Gen. Tom Thumb, Count Magri and Baron Magri are surrounded by some clever artists, among them being Victor Lee, Chae. H. Clark, Florence McMahon, Polly Chester.

Four Land Agents Who Round Up Just That Many Viotlms in Helena. I Now They Are Missing With $100 of Very Hard Barned Money. Reld on a Charge of Running Off With a Lot of UOgars-Assistant Post s master Arrested. There are four men somewhere within two t days' travel of Helena that the pollce would like to meet. There are four men in Helena 1 who would like to meet them even worse than the police. These latter four are out ) $25 apiece, and the money has gone into the pockets of the other four, who claimed to be from Tacoma, Wash. The Tacoma men arrived in Helena on Friday night, with their gripsacks, the cheek and a big scheme. This scheme is best explained by the following paper which they drew up, dated Tacomas, and left with their victims: "Received of Mr. John Doe $26, for which we are to locate him upon 160 acres of timber land within seventy days from date, on the following conditions: We are to furnish a guide to locate Mr. John Doe - on the land, and assoon as Mr. John Doe gets his title, we will procure for him a purchaser who will pay him $i0O for the timber on said land. And Mr. John Doe agrees that upon the payment to him of $80, over and above all expenses, that he will transfer the timber on said land to the party designated, and that he will not show this contract to, or make known its contents to, any person without consent of the agent. We each agree to fulfill to the letter the stipulations made between us in this contract, and to abide by it. And it is farther agreed that if either party should desire to withdraw from this contract they are to give ten days notice to the other." Four people bit on the land scheme and each paid $25. The Tacoma sharps left town Sunday morning. It is needless to say that they will avail themselves of the full seventy days allowed by the agreement, and will also take advantage of the clause requiring the victims to say nothing about the matter to anybody else. County Attor ney Nolan does not think any case could be made against the men on account of the wording of the contract. There is a govy ernment law, however, which prevents com binations of this kind to take up public lands. Still, the police would like to see these land grabbers. So would the victims, who are all working men and who can ill afford their lose. ANOTHER MAN'S CIGAR'S. Charles Jones Held on a Charge of Taking Off 1,900 Cigars. Charles Jones, recently of Moscow, Idaho, ys held at the city jail on the charge of running off with 1,900 cigars belonging to Herman Heyneman, of San Francisco. Jones arrived in town from Moscow. Idaho, some time ago and has since been trying to dispose of his goods, which were shipped to him under the name of H. Cloud. The cigars were stored in a house in the valley. The matter attracted the suspicions of Marshal Galvin, who had Jones brought to the city hall, and telegraphed around to different points to find out if any big lot of cigars had been taken. An answer came from Chief of Police Crowley, of San Fran cisco, saving the cigars belonged to Herman Heyneman, of that city, and had been taken from Moscow. Lawyer J. A. Walsh also got a dispatch from the same source asking him to recover the cigars, as well as some money in Jones' possession. The money had all gone to employ a lawyer to defend him. It is said Jones bought the cigars from the Man Francisco man, net paying for them, and then left Moscow and had the goods sent after him. The cigars are valued at $250. A Young Woman Under Arrest.
