In Addition to the Civic servises They Are to Espeelally Remember Its ke lioleus Features. John B. Brondel, bishop of Helena, has euened the following pastoral, relating to a proper celebration of Columbus day. Oct. 21, by the Catholics of his diocese. The pastoral is as follows: JOHN BAPTIST, BY THE GRACn or GoD AnD THw FAVOR OF TAR APOSTOLIo Ba, BISHOP OF RELENA. To the Clergy end the Faithful of our Dio ceae, Greeting: On the 12tb day of October, 1492, Chris topher Columbus discovered America. Pope Leo XIII. wishes the American church to celebrate the 400th anniversary in an ap propriate manner, The president of these United States and the governor of Mon tana have issued proclamations to the eit zens. inviting them to a proper observance of that great event. As American Catholics we shall take great pleasure in complying with the wishes of our spiritual and temporal rulers, the more so, that the preat discoverer was an exem plary Catholic, and we share in the fruits of his discovery. We desire, therefore, to direct your attentioli to the glorious achievement, brought about by Divine Providence at the close of the middle ages, the discovery of Ameriesa by that great Christian hero, Christopher Columbus. The idea of such an undertaking was so unheard of in those days. that Columbus met with nothing but disappointments in his own and neighboring countries. The whole project would have to be abandoned, perhaps for centuries to come, if God had not raised up a woman, full of faith and zeal for religion. Having listened to the plans of that providential man, and en couraged by some of the clergy who exer cised great influence at hyr court, she es poused the cause and was willing to pledge even her jewels for its furtherance. That great woman was Isabella, the Catholic queen of Catholic Spain. God alone could have Inspired Columbus with that indomi table spirit of perseverance required for car ying out so perilous a work; faith and piety guided his every action, which made him find the time for gathering up his crew to receive in a body holy communion be fore leaving, on a Friday, the port of Pa los. No wonder that also on Friday, the day snered to the memory of our Savior's passion, he took possession of the land he discovered by lantiung upon it the cross, the.sign of man's salvation. Let it here be remembered that Columbus wished, by his discoveries, to spread the knowledge of Christ and to obtain means to reseaue the holy land from the ntfidel Turk. A great part of Europe will vie with ns in celebrat ing that great event. No one shall sur pass us in rendering thanks to God for having opened a new world, wheoe untold millions would praise his holy name, thank ing him for new and prosperous homes and fo, the liberty of conscience "under their own vine and fig tree." It is our earnest request that Friday, the 21st of October, be celebrated in every church as solemnly as possible, with high mass, sermon and benediction with the holy sacrament wherever it can be done, and that the faithful keep the day as on festivals. The masses to be taken "de Beata" pro re gravi with the orations "pro gratiarum actione." We further recom mend that our people take an active part in the civic celebrations with which a grateful and Christian nation will honor the day. As Catholic France helped the United States to establish their independence, as such great Catholic officers as Sherman, Sheridan, Mulligan and others proved the loyalty of Catholics to the union in the late war, whilst priests and Sisters of Charity proved their unadulterated Christian in stincts by ministering to the dying soldiers of north and south, so let the Catholico peo ple celebrate with their fellow-citizens the glories of the Catholic discoverer of America, our common home. May the Lord bless our country and pre serve it; may He establish and preserve peace and good will among all the people of this union. That this prayer may obtain its effect, let all foster Christian education, let all strive to practice Chlietian virtues. and then prosperity will reign, for God shall be known and praised, and the prom ise shall be fulfilled that such as bless Him shall inherit the land.-Ps. xxzvi 22. This pastoral will be read at the paroch ial masses on the Sunday after its recep tion. Given at our residence, Helens, Mont., Sept. 25, A. D. 1892, on the feast of it. Louis. JOHN B. BRONDEL, Bishop of Helena. C. G. FOI.LET, Secretary. A FREIGHT RUNNING FAST. Crashes Into the Caboose of a Construction Train. MAsoN CIrTY., Io., Sept. 28.-Seven dead and three injured is the result of an awfal railroad wreck at New Hampton this morn ing. A crew was at word on the main line of the Chicago & Great Western road, re placing rails, this morning. About 10 o'clock their train pulled into New Hamp ton and stopped to do some work, though a freight due there at 10:15 was lnto and run ning on orders not to stop at New Hamp. ton. The road enters New Hampton from the north, but within sixty rods makes a turn, going directly east. This makes a bad ulrve in the road, and a grove between shut off all view beyond. The freight came around the curve thirty miles an hour and crashed into the caboose of the construction train. The engineer and fireman jumped just in time to save their livros, for a moment later the engine struck. 'IThe bodies removed from the wreckage are awfully mangled. Up to a Inte hour this morning only one of the bodies was identified, that of M. MoNa mars, a traveling man from Independence. The names of the others may not be learned to-night. Itace Troubles Countinue. 'INIPs Blutrr, Ark.. Sept. 24.-The race trouble is still cn ia Calhoun county. Yes terdae a reputable negro, while working in his field, was assaulted, presumably by two white men against whom he recently testi fled an a criminal aose. The negroes are once more making threats against their white neighbors, and it is feared more trouble is inevitable. TIhe Striklag Telegraphers. COma RA tiMe, Iowa, Sept. 24.--There is little change in the strike pltustien. The company has been eompelled to abandon specall trains and runs only regular trains on card time. The strikers argue that this ia a great point for them. WESTERN MONTANA FRUIT, Fine fpealmens Exhibited at the Meet1eg ot the Growere' Asoelaltien. MIanouLA, Sept. 24. - [Special.] - The Western Montana Fruit Growers' as ooia lion met in the board of trade rooms thiA afternoon. A number of the largest fruit growers of the Bitter Root and Miesouil valleys were present. On the shelves of the room were samples of apples, plums and pears grown in these valleys, and also a number of jars of fruits preserved in salieylio acid for exhibition at the World's fair. The jars are two feet high and very artistic in design. Mr. Harlan called the meeting to order and stated that a temporary organization had been effected at Stevensville last spring and the object of the present meet ing was to make that organization per mnanent. The meeting then proceeded to the election of officers as follows: Hon. W. B. Harlan president, Fred Gilbert vice president, Roe Fulkerson secretary. Hon. H. E. Rutherford'treasurer; executive com. mittee, J. 8. Robinson, C. E. Beckwith, H. C. Base, J. F. Wilson, At Higgins. The meeting then called for a speech from W. M. Biokford, World's fair com missioner. He stated that he had con ceived the idea that a fruit growers' aeo ciation would be of great assistanee to him in preparing an exhibit of the fruit grow ing interests of Montana for the fair. He had corresponded with Mr. Harlan on the subject and received his hearty co-opera tion. The object of the association was to encourage fruit raising, to ascertain the best method of cultivation, to advance Montana fruit and promote the industry in every way. He had sent for 200glase jars in which to exhibit fi uit at the fair, and at the time supposed that number ample, bat he had found out that 1,000 were needed, as there would be a fruit exhibit from Mad ison, Meagher, Dawson, Custer, Fergus and Missoula counties. Photographs of some of the best orchards will also be exhibited. He spoke at length on the value this ex hibit would be to thefruit growing interests of Montana. He had found it very diffi cult to make eastern people and even Mon tana people believe good fruit could be raised in this state. As a matter of fact, several varieties of fruit raised here is equal in size, appearance and flavor to that of any state in the union. UNION PACIFIC RAILWAY. Government Directors Report the Road in Flourishing Coudliton. * WAHIIINOTON, Sept. 24.-The annual re port of the gaverument directors of the Union Pacific railway has been received by the secretary of the interior. The property of the company is stated to be in the high est degree satisfactory, its business has been conducted with the strictest economy, and its expenses, even on an increased vol ume of business, largely reduced. Not withstanding the reduction of the physical condition, the road and equipment have been fully maintained, and even improved. The general business, both in gross and net, has improved. From local causes operations ip northwest Oregon lines have suffered considerable loss. Large earnings and general improvement upon all of the other portions of the system have more than compensated for it and promise a very gratifying increase of earnings for the whole system for the current year. The board deprecates the practical abandon ment of roads in construction two years ago in Oregon and Utah. The recent decision of Justice Field af firming the right of the Northern Pacific company to decline to haul the cars of the Union Pacific over its lines in Oregon and Washington, if sustained on final hearing, will, the board declares, make the com pletion of the Poget sound road a neces sity. For the Union Pacific proper the earnings and expenses for the six months ended June 30, 1892, are as follows: Earn ings, $8.909."333: expenses, $5,184,465; sur plus, $3,724,867. This is an increase in earnings for the year of $272,272, and a de crease in expenses of $158,374, making the net increase in the surplus for the year $430,647.. For the entire system the earn ings were $19,973,273 and the expenses $13, 494,504. '1 his is an increase in the earnings for the year of $540,909, and a decrease in expenses of $159,438. Unofficial and in complete returns for the months of July and August indicate continued gain in gross earnings and improvement on the Oregon lines, and it is regarded as probable the net results for the present year will show a substantial gain over last. A FAILURE. A Husband Charged With Cruel and In human Treatment. Marie S. Nelson has commenced suit against J. W. Nelson in the district court for a divorce. Her complaint accuses the defendant of cruel and inhuman treatment. She says while they were living at East Helena a year ago last July he took her by the shoulders and shook her and com pelled her to seek shelter with the neigh bors and that he was drunk at the time. On Sept. 17, 1891, she alleges that her hus band grabbed her by the neck with both hands and choked her until she became black in the face and was unable to breathe, at the same time beating her with his fist and dragging her about the room, threaten ing to kill her. Mrs. Nelson also accuses him of using vile and insulting language toward her. 'Thev were married at St. Paul on April 16, 1888, and have no children. The following divorces were granted yes terday: George lSchaffer from Elizabeth Schaffer, Frank W, Daddow from Mary Daddow. A judgment for $138.05 was rendered yee teruay against the Big Ox mining company in favor of P. J. Larson. The sale of lot 65 and parts of lots 64 and 63, block 28, Helena towneite, belonging to the estate of Emery Bean, to V. C. lhinda and T. H. COlewell, executors of Deborah M. Hloyt, was confirmed. Wihat Peary Disaonvered. PIIILADnaLPIrr, Sept. 24.-But little infor mation can be gained from Lieut. Peary or any of the members of the expedition in regard to the scientiflo result of the jour ney. Lieut. Peary and wife are under con tract to New York papers to give them the results of the expedition first, and other c.embers are pledged to silence. The lieu tenant said the most important work ac complished, of course, was the discovery of a great bay named Inoependence bay, on the northeast coast of Greenland, and the practical outlining of the entire northern coast of Greenland, settling once aind for all the vexed question as to whether Green land stretched across the pole in a Houren continental mass or not. Greenland, as the map now will show, is a great island reach ing from Lte present known vroition to a little above the eighty-third parallel of latitude. New York Apportloumnout. ALANY., Sept. 24.-Notice of appeal from the decission of the general term in the Oneida county case, testing the constitu tionality of the legislative apportionment law, was filed with the clerk of the court of appeals to-day. Notice of appeal in the Monroe coatty case has net let been fled. THEY LOST THE SECONDI Missoula Decides to Play Ball and Goes Under by a Score of Ten to Six. It Was a- Cold Day and Not Favorable to Very Fine Playing. There Was but One Close Deelslon and the Visitors Got the Benefit of That One. The Missoulse decided they would rather take their chances against the Helenas yee toerday than forfeit another game. When the sport was over tihe visitors were not backward in stating that if they had known What kind of a deal they were going to get from the umpire they would have played on Friday and taken an even chance of win ning. Umpire Bob Fisk had but one close decisalon during yesterday's game on which there was a chance to differ, and on that he gave the Missoulas the best of it. The home team found some objections to his judgment on calling balls and strikes, but for a green hand he did very well. Anyway he gave the Missoulas no chance to blame their defeat on the umpire. They lost through their bad fielding, nearly every error being costly. The day was raw, windy and disagreeable, and the clouds of dust that were whisked around caused many short stops in the game until the clouds rolled by. The visitors gave notide before the game began that they would play under protest, but the chances are they were per fectly satisfied with the umpire's work and will have no "kick a-coming." Both Mun day'and Griffith pitched well, considering the high wind. The feature of the fielding was a catch by Routcliffe of a long fly. Helena went to hat first and scored a run on two errors by Sippi, which allowed Hernan to make the circuit. '1 he Missoulas got a hit and a base on balls in their half, but Munday struck out the side and pre vented a run. Crotty started the second inning for Helena by a sharp hit to third baseman's territory, and after Strathers had struck out scored on a two bagger by Lohbeck. Munday also struck out, but O'Brisn gave Hernan a life by his error, and this with a wild pitch let in both Lohbaok and Hernan. The same will pitch was on Huoton's strike out, and let him reach first. Hatfield ended the run getting by going out at first on an infield ball. The result of the half inning was three for Helena. In their half the visitors jumped on to Monday's delivery for the only time during the game and tied the score. R]outecliffe opened with a base on balls and went to third on O'Brien's clean hit. When O'Brien started to steal second Routcliffe came home while the ball was passing between Lohbeck and Hassamaer. Cody struok out. Then Griffith lined the ball put for th ee bases and O'Brien scored. GI rth hims.elf scored by an infield hit by Patton; who stole second and scored on a clean hit by Goodeneongh. That was the last run of the inning, as Work went oat at first and Cartwright struck out. The third and fourth innings were not productive of any runs for either club. In the fifth, however, after Hatfield had sent a fly out to center, George got hit by the ball and went to first. He made second on Haesamaer sacrificing himself, stole third and scored on Crotty's two-bagger. A wild pitch and a hit by Strathers' sent Crotty across the plate with the second run of the inning, but Lohbeck went out on a fly to right field, and that ended it. For Mis soala, two men had gone out at first when Sippi sent the ball out for two bases. Rout cliffe sent one into Strathers' territory, and it was fielded cleanly to Hassamaer, who had run to cover first. It looked like an out, but the umpire declared loutoliffe safe, and Sippi had meantime scored. Routeliffe was thrown out at first, being caught too far off the base. In Helena's half of the seventh, after Munday had gone out on a fly to Patten, Hernan reached first on an error of short, and Huston on a bunt, but each was thrown out trying to steal second. The visitors went out in one, two, three order in their half. Each side scored a run in the seventh. Helena's was duoe to three-base hits b7 George and Crotty. The visitors made theirs by Patton getting hit by the ball, taking second on a wild pitch, third when Lobbeok missed Goodeneough's third strike and had to throw to first base, and coming home when Work sacrificed himself on an infield ball. Two were out for Helena in the eighth inning, when fHernan made a clean hit and stole second. Huston got a base on balls. Both scored on Patten's bad throw to first of a ball batted by Hatfleld. George ended the run getting by sending a fly to the left field. The visitors did noth ing in their half, though Routcliffe reached first and second after one was out, on a hard hit ball through Huston. Helena got an other in the ninth. Hassamaer got first on a hit to the infield, beating the ball out, and stole around, going to third on a missed third strike of Crotty, who was thrown out at first. He scored when Strathere sent the ball to short, boating it on the return home. Lohbeok went out on a fly to left, and Munday forced Strathers out at second. For Missoula Patten made a hit after one was out, but the next two men sent up fly balls and ended the game. bcore: RELENA. Al] ti. ia. PO. r- W.

PENNANT IN BIORT. Helena Will Make a Great Straggle To Day and Until the End. Helena and Missoula will play great ball to-day, and it will be the last ouportunity to see a game at Athletoi park in the pros eat series. The home team will play the last games of the series at Butte next Sun day, when will come five games between Butte, the winner of the first series, and the winner of the second, for the pennant. If Helena should capture the second series two games will be played at Biqtte and two at Helena, and the third at some place to be mutually agreed upon. If the home team wins the game to-day Helena's chances for winning the championship of the seo and series are almost uassured, as it is not probable that Butte will beat Helena three straight, nor that Missoula will take three games from Philipsburg. The game to-day ought to be well attended, now that the race for the pennant is so close.
