ON AUGUST 13TH, 1704, was
fought one of the fifteen decisive
battles of the world.
At Blenheim, a village on the
left bank of the Danube, Marl
borough and his allies overthrew
the French and Bavarian forces,
capturing Marshal Tallard and
taking 13,ooo prisoners. But
for this defeat, Louis XIV
would in all probability have
become master of the whole
continent of Europe.

Nsw OauLAws, Aug. 12.-Frank Dayton,
the actor-athlete, has sailed on Jim Cor
bett and wtites as follows to a friend In
New O leans: "Oorbett is training very
hard, 1 naeve saw a man work like he does.
He never seems to tire and he Is as pleas
ant as a Vassar graduate to all. I saw
Corbett come in from Long Braneh the day
before yesterday and he was apparently
freshenough after his long inun. He was
perspiring freely and looked 100 per cent
better than when I last saw him. He is
much stronger than he ever was, and as I
saw the Jackson-Corbett fight I knew he is
a eleverer and straighter puncher."
The special train that will take James J.
Corbett to New Orleans for his great fight
with Sullivan, has been definitely settled
upon at last. The train of the Piedmont
line, which wall be called the "Corbett
Special," will leave New York at four p. m.
on Sept. 1, and will make the run in forty
houar, arriving in New Orleans at 7:385 on
the morning of Sept. 8. The party
that will accompany Corbett will be com

Dillon and Billy Delaney.' They will have
a vestibule car and a special baggage car
fitted up with a punching bag and pulley

CnHIcoo, Aug. 12.-The Hall and Pritch
ard fight for $10,000 promises to cre
ate no little excitement in America, as well
ai in England. Judging from the records
of the two men, the battle will be a stub
horn one. Pritchard is a great favorite
over the ocean, of coulse, but Hall will
have the backing of our own "Par
son" Davies, who generally knows
what he is doing. Pritchard has
won every battle he has so
far engaged in. He stands five feet nine
inches in height, and isonly 22years of age.
He knocked Jem Cashley Yorky out in two
rounds, defeated Dave Galvin, Dick Leery,
and Dave Burk in a ten-stone open cham
pionship tournament, beat Jem Hayes for
£200 in four rounds, and defeated Alf Mit
chell for £200 a side and the middle-weight
championship of England, Dec. 15, 1890, in
four rounds. He also fought Jack Burke,
the Irish lad, well known in thin coun
try, on March 12, 1891, for £1,000 and the
middleweight championship of England,
and knocked Burke out in three rounds in
side of eleven minutes. Pritchard was
then matched to fight Jem Smith at catch
weights for £1,000 and the chlrmpionehip of
England. Many sap;.osed Pritchard would
ie defeated and odds were wagered on
Smith. The battle was decided on July
27, 1891, at London, and Pritchard sur
prised the fancy by knocking the champion
out in threk round.
Pt itchard is a hurricane fighter and a ter
rible lunieher. His battle with the Eng
lish champion proved this; for while only
three rounds were fought ,mith's eyes were
blackened, one closed, and his cheeks out
and badly bruised, although the ilrht did
not lart nine minutes. John Gideon, who
bucked Tom on ayers in nearly all his bat
tles, and who is now living Paris, anld Jack
Percival, who arranged the international
fight between John C. Heenan and 'om
King for $10,000, both claim that Pritchard
is the beat fighter England has produced
since Jem Mace retired.
Charley Mitchell and Frank P. Slavin
will second Hall, and it is understood Jack
Baldock and probably Jack Harper, who
seconded Jem Smith when he fought Jake
Kilrain in Franee. will look after Prit
chard's interest. Pritchard is looked spon
by some as a second 'Tom Sayers. He
fights at the same weight as the once
famous English champion, but he is not as
muscular and does not possess the bull dog
courage and stamina of Sayers.
Hall has done his work at Brighton and
will enter the ring in tirst-class condition.
He has made a host of friends and will be
heavily backed.
aild He Would Go and Get It, but Shot
MIssoULA, Aug. 12. - ([peoial.] - John
Brunner, who has had charge of the lodg-,
ing rooms over the Montana saloon, shot
himself at six o'clock this evening. The
deed was done with a 38-oaliber revolver,
the bullet entering a little below the left
nipple and stopping against the muscles of
the back. He is still alive and was taken
to the Sisters' hospital. No cause has been
assigned for the shooting, but it is sup
nosed that he was despondent from drink
ing heavily during the past few days. Joe
Wagner, his employer, states that just pre
vious to the shooting he was talking to
Brunner and asked him to turn over the
money in the safe, which should have been
about $55. Brunner said he was short $5,
and woald go and get it. He went immedi
ately to the water closet and shot himself.
It was afterward discovered that Brunner
took a dose of carbolic aoid before he shot
himself. His recovery is impossible.
Thirty Men Were Burled in the Rulins
Killed and Mangled.
OrDMes, N. J., Aug. 12.-A building being
erected here fell this morning burying
thirty men beneath its ruins. Search for
bodies under the wreck of the collapsed
building was immediately begun. The tirst
victim taken out was an Italian workman.
dead, the body terribly mangled. Soon
after three others were removed in a dying
condition. Up to a late hour to-night
twelve men had been taken out, all seri
ousnely and four fatally wounded. Several
others, it also is feared, will die. The work
af rescue is being pushed forward. The
injuries of those taken from the ruins are
of the most terrible nature, the limbs of
some being tor off, while the fthoes of
otuers were crashed beyond resogaition.

Oeorge A. Iherd.la Talks to the Party at 1
the Opera louse.
There was a fairly large audience as
Ming's opera bouse last night to hear
George A. Sheriden talk. The stage was
decorated with a crayon portrait of Pres.
dent Harrison, and among those occupying
eeate near it were Col. A. C. Biotkin, Com
modore T. C. lower, A, S. Seligman. L. H.
Hershfleld, F. P. Sterling, Joseph Davis,
C. C. Newmad and Francis Adkinson. Mr. I
Sheridan is a pleasant talker and illustrates
his speeeh with eomparative figures which
he saya he obtained himself relative to
wages in the United States and England.
He started of with the tariff subject and
declared that the democratic party had
always held a tariff unoonstitntlonul. "I1
have an idea"' he said, "that the McKinley
bill is constitutional." He furtherdeolared
that the tariff was not a tax on the people
of Montana. Comingdown to comparisons
claimed to have been based on figures obh
tained by himself, he called attention to
the wages paid to the unproctcted indes
tries here and in England. He took for his
examples bricklayers, policemen, letter car
riers and railway engineers. The latter,
he said, should save $720 a year out of *
what he made on the Northern Pacide,
"previded he did not keep filled up on bger t
or play draw poker." An engineer in Eng- e
land, he claimed, could not save more than
$297 a year. Mr. Sheridan asserted that
fool in England was not cheaper than heret '
and later on seid he hoped that the Ameri
can people would never have to live d
as cheaply. On the subject of free wool he t
said the aolicy of the democratic party was i
to raise the price of that article by taking
of the duty and letting in all the wool of e
the world in order to overstock 7
the market. The silver question was
the last subject touched on. He said he
knew the people of Montana were not sat
isfied with the posntions of the two parties
on that subject. At the same time he e
knew that either Cleveland or Harrison
would be elected to deal with the silver '
problem. No third party would get a
chance to solve it for 1.000 years. He said
Harrison's first act after going into office I
showed his friendliness to silver by taking 1
as his secretary of the treasury William t
Windom, from the northwestern state of i
Minnesota. The secretary of the treasury
was also known to be a friend of silver, he
said, and his first act was to advocate the I
coinace of the entire American product.
He accomplished something, when he gave i
a market for silver at some price' or other
where no markes existed before. Secretary
Foster, the successor to Secretary Windom, I
was also known to be a friend of silver.
"You people have your ideas of what you I
want," continued the speaker. "There
is no agency through which you ean
get just what you want. President
Harrison does not believe as you do. He
thinks the only way to remonetize silver is
by concurrent action of the nations of the
world. He has shown his friendliness to
silver in the appointment of the represent
atives to the monetary conference. I be
lieve the result of the conference will be
that a parity of gold and silver will be
agreed on and the mines of the world open
to the coinage of silver." In conclusion he
referred to the duty on lead and said it was
due to Tom Carter more than to any other
man that the duty wee not reduced from a
cent and a half a pound to one-half that.
The Work of the Sessious at Denver Fin.l
Ished and Knights Leaving.
DryvnR, Aug. 12.-The knights were
leaving town to-day rapidly. Enough are
remaining, however, to make the city ex
tremely lively. Among the commanderies
departing for home was Montana No. 3, of
Butte. Many residents kept open house
to-night and the knights were entertained
royally. A very large number visited
Manitou, Pike's Peak and other points of
interest. To-night the t iennial committee
tendered an elegant banquentto the officers
of the grand encampment. Over 3a0
knights were present. During the festivi
ties Sir Knight MeF. Patton, of Salem,
Ore., presented Grand Master Gobin with
a gavel made of Oregon oak and in the
center of it is the form of a maltese croms.
It is an oak solid blook, taken from a tree
just as it grew, and the close formation
was the work of nature.
The Knights Templar grand encampment
finished the work of the twenty-fifth tri
ennial conclave and adjourned to-day after
having installed the newly elected officers.
Grand Master McCurdy made the following
additional appointments, which, with the
offioers elected yesterday, make up the full
list of officers of the grand encampment:
Sir Rov. Joseph McGrath, D. D., of Illinoie,
prelate; Sir Wm. B. Mellishb, of Ohio, grand
standard bearer; Sir George C. Connor, of
Tennessee. grand sword bearer; Sir H. M.
Orahood, of Colorado, grand warden; Sir
John A. Sloan, of Missouri, grand captain
of guard. The grand master also appointed
the committee on jurisprudence.

and Paying Pools,
The twenty-third annual meeting of the b
Montana State fair opens to-day. The pros- v
pects are good for a large exhibition and an t
exciting and eucceesful racing week. All the v
horsse engaged at Anaconda and Butte are
here except Marous Daly's, who has con- f
eluded to send hie horses east. The exhibit q
in floral hall promises to be fully up to pre
vious years. Floral hall is already receir
ing contributions from the ladies and to
day it will be filled to repletion. To-day is
the last day on which entries can be made c
by exhibitors, but they have until Monday e
evening to take their goods to the grounds.
The display in flowers and cut plants
will be larger than any had for
years. In addition to the racing I
the management have arranged for
several balloon ascensions by the boy aero
naut, Master Carleton. He will also make I
b' parachute descent from a height of 2,000
leest. Among his performances will be a
race from the balloon to the ground with a
pigeon, both leaving the airship at the same
time. The famous west side band, the ]
Butte and Boston, of twenty pieces, will be
here to-day in time to parade and will be at
the fair grounds during the races with a
repetoire of high class music. The track
and grounds are in fine condition. Visit
ing horsemen say they are the prettiest
grounds they have seen this season.
k. B. Whitehead, who has charge of the
pool selling arrangements for the fair asso
ciation, will have seven assistants, includ
ing George Booker as auctioneer. Every
body knows George Booker. The repute
tion of the Whitehead people stands second
to that of no pool sellers in the country.
Nobody connected with the concern is al- 1
lowed to bet a cent on the results of the
races. In the Paris mutuals none of those
connected with the selling of tickets tonuhes
the boxes. The manager has a corps of
hi:ed messenger boys who ring up the
tickets sold or do anything eles he orders.
Mr. Whitehead wishes it understood that
hie firm is in no way connected with the
scalping of Paris mutual tickets or any
others, either at the track or elsewhere.
There is a special cashier for the Paris
mutuals and one for the auction tickets,
both at the track and at the pool room in
town. In order that the Paris mutual sys
tem may not be misunderstood by anyone,
large cards are stuck up at the grounds and
all over town explaining the methods
y- ployed and the rules observej.
Either in straight tickets, place
tickets or heat tickets, where
more than one box is selling, all the boxes
are added together, making one lool. In
heat races the tickets are sold on the heats
only. In case of dead heats the money is
divided in oroportion to the number of
tickets sold on each horse. When two
horses run a dead heat for second place the
division is made as follows: The winner
gets his full share of one half the place
money and the dead-heat horses each re
ceive one half of the balance. If a horse
runs in a race whose name is not included
in the mutuals and wine, all the straight
money goes to the horse which comes in
second, and the place money is divided
between the second and third horses. All
pools are paid immediately after the de
cision of the judges without regard to pro
tests. In the auction pools no favorite or
first choice will be sold for loss than $25 on
the track. Every night and morning pre
ceding any day's programme auction pools
will be sold at Hotel Helena. Tickets on
the last race of the day will be cashed at
the hotel the night or morning following.
Mr. Whitehead says his business at Butte
each day doubled that of the corresponding
day of last year. The firm make it a point
to pay tickets down to the last nickel, in
stead of claiming all the rakeoff.
The Great Northern is making all ar
rangements to put on the usual special
trains between the city and the fair
grounds during fair week. They will run
twenty-seven speoial t:ains daily between
the Montana Central depot, Helen, arrd
the fair grounds. The first train will leave
Helena at 12 o'clock noon and then a train
every thirty minutes until seven p. m.
Coupon tickets have been provided which
will carry passengers from any point on
Main street out to the fair grounds, into
r the fair grounds and back to any point on
Main street. These tickets cost $1.45 for
gentlemen and 95 cents for ladies. They,
of course, include the fare on the electric
line to the depot, railhoad fair out tg the
F fair grounds, and ticket of admission to the
-rounds, with coupons left for the home
ward trap. These tickets will be on sale at
r the Montana Central clty ticket office and
by all conductors on the Helena Electric
railway line running on Main street.

Reasons Why Tlhey wtlli Not leo Run on
the helenan Track.
Much to the regret of HIlena people, it
became positively known yesterday that
none of Marcus D)aly's hores will appear
at the Helena meeting. In a telegraom to
Col. Hundley Mr. Daly said they were eat
alogued to aupear at l.exingtou. Ky., in
October, and he could not under the cir
cumstancee send them to the lielona meet
ing, though he regretted the circumstance
exceedingly. The hitter Hoot iBugle has
tite following to say on the same subject:
'The horses Iroum lamilton and lrtvoraide
stables have not been very suocessful at the
Ilutte raees, and Mr. Italy has concluded to
take them off the circuit. His string of
runners were brought in last Wednesday
night, among them being Riverside, Little
l)orritt and Lottery. The runners have
won very few raoe., while much difieoulty
and diseatistnotion were encountered in .n

ether horsemen claiming that they were

titing the withdrawal of the objectionable
horses or the abandonment of the race.
It ie said by some that the horses were
not being driven to wins that is, that the
jookeys were "pulling" the animals, and
the belief that Mr. Dnly shares this opin
ion has caused the rumor that both Kenney E
and MoDowell will leave his employ. Mr.
Daly will probably not start any more of
his trottore on the Montane circuit, but
will enter exelusively eastern courses. A
light distemper is prevalent with the horses
on the Hamilton ranch and a quarantine
barn has been established.

Lownrm, Aug. 12.--Gladstone will go to
Osborne house Monday with a complete
list of the next cabinet to submit to the
queen, but, in pursuanoe of constitutional
usage, he maintains absolute silenee on the
proposed appointments. It is impossible
to coniceal the fart that arrangements are
being made for Sir Wm. Vernon Haroourt
at the exchequer, and for John Morley as
Irish secretary, but Gladstone's intentions
regarding other ministers are not known,
even to some of the definitely appointed
members of his ministry. Being a punotil
lions observer of official precedent, he will
not formally offer a place to any one until
he actually receives the queen's commands
to form a ministry. Among the moststrik
ing reports finding credence in official legal
quarters is one to the effect that Lord
Herschell will become governor-general of
India, that Lord Chief Justice Coleridge
will become lord chancellor, and Sir Charles
Russell will become lord chief justice.
Lord Hersohell's transference will cause a
shudder of apprehension throughout the
country, in view of the critical position of
Indian-Russian relations. Until Tuesday,
when Gladstone returns from Osborne
house, the exact composition of the eabinet
will remain unknown.
It is .nown in court circles that it wasfear
regarding the personnel of the Gladstone
ministry that mainly induced the queen to
consult the duke of Devonshire during his
visit to Osborne house, as to whether it is
possible for him to reunite with Gladstone
and sweeten the liberal ministry by having
office himself. Another source of the
queen's uisquietude is the change in regal
household appointments inevitable on
Gladstone's accession to power. Gladstone
will find it exceedingly difficult to get per
sonages agreeable to the queen to fill greet
court offices.
The house of commons will resume busi
ness on Thursday next and will mainly
issue writs for the re-election of ministers.
The prorogation of parliament is expected
to take place Aug. 22.
Arrangements for the meeting of the in
ternational monetary conference are pro
grseasin. Mr. Currie, of the banking firm
of Glynn, Mills, Currie & Co., is the
strongest man appointed by the English.
He has no tendency whatever toward hi
metailism. On the contrary, he is strong
for a single standard. His influence will
overrule any inclination of his co-delegates
towards an arrangement satisfying Amer
ica. Of the other delegates. Sir C. W.
Freemantle is a mono-metallist, Sir W. H.
Houldsworth and Gen. Strachey are bi
metallists, and Mr. Murray, who is a treas
ury clerk, is neutral. 'he members of the
conference will have a pleasant time in
Dresden, but will effect little.
Guilty of Two Infamous Outrages-Mur
der and Robbery.
PANAMA, Aug. 12.-An account of peculiar
atrocity in Chili is received in the shooting,
robbery and brutal treatment by bandits
of two prominent families. Don Jose Mig
uel Valesco, of Cotopoe, and family, while
en route to Santiago, stopped at Nan Juan
del Feral. About 7:30 Saturday evening
Valesco, in company with the members of
his family, was in a room which opened
onto the corridor of the house, when the
murmur of voices was heard, and he (Val
esco), not suspecting danger, opened the
door, when he was shot in the left cheek
the ball lodging in the brain, and he fell
mortally wounded. Valesco was then
pounced upon by one of the bandits, who
bound his arms and robbed him of his
money and jewels and left him to the other
bandits, who clubbed the dying man
on the head with the butt end of their car
bines. Mrs. Valesco, seizing two children,
took refuge in an adjoinming oom while two
daughters fled into the yard. The bandits
quickly traced Mrs. Valesco and after mal
treating her bound her hands and feet.
I'hey tore out her ear rings and stripped
her of other jewelry, threatening to kill her
if she made the slighteetnoise. The others
pursued Miss :-ara Valesco, firing at her as
she fled across the yard with the two chil
dren. bhe sought refuge near the kitchen
where a servant had already fled, but was
quickly traced and she too was bound hand
and foot and maltreated. The butler, who
started to assist his master, fell to the
ground insensible, and being dragged to
where Valesso lay dead, was thrown aoroas
the body.
)Doln Andrea Hardes, hearing the shots,
accompanied by his son started for the
scene. They had not gone far before they
were fired upon by some bandits who had
been set on guard and the son fell wounded
through tbe thigh. After plundering the
house the bandite left and those who suc
ceeded in hiding from them came out and
unbound the victims. 'lhe gang numbered
about twenty and their faces were covered
with handkerchiefs, and they were far from
the vulgar class.
At the sanme time three men asked to be
allowedt to remain all night at the house of
D)on Jose Mercedes Leal, at ltobleria. In
the middle of the night they arose, forced
an entrance to their host's bedroom and
stabbed him and his wife to death. A 10
year-old son escaped and later identified
two men who have since been arrested on
suspicion of complioity.
Opposition and Partlian Papers ea the
I'ollticat Outleek.
LoNaro, Aug. 12.-The Daily Chronicle,
liberal, says: "The single effective point
Chamberlain made in his speech was that
Gladstone will hold otffloe for six months
without defining his policy. Had an
autumn session been conoeded, as we ad
vised, Chamberlain must have out from his
apeech all of its most damaging passagee.
ittil the new ministry meets the house
next session no masn dare say it is seated
tlprml enough to govern the country with
eathority and vigor. Until Gladstone
brings his home rule measure forward IL
would be idle to ignore the faot that his
majority iy heterogene ,us."
LiLe Lall Mall Gazette, liberal, says:
"Gladetone's triumph is Parnells also.
'twent years ago Parnell had not even en
tered parllament. Before he died he had
converted nine out of ten Irishmen aginest
revolutionary methods. The eafet of the
division is Irrevocable. Dtfloeltles and
delays in home rale there mayr e, bet its
Anal adoption is now inevitable.
