SOLE AGENTS. GSANS & KILEIN CLOSE POLITICAL FRIENl S How Brother Jack Got Them Inter ested in a Port Orchard Deal. Brother They Must Be Taken round Why Rome Leading Repn ans Are Watehing the Distrlhutlen of Re* publian Mhoney Closely. The half dozen republleosn who have e been watehing the depots and hotels in w Helena for the past two weeks in the hope Is of getting an into view with "Jack" Carter, b T. H. Carter's brother, have about given it up in disgust. "Jack" has been in town during that time, but he has gotten around If so quietly that before these who are most ¶ anxious to see him were aware he was in E town he had gone. It may be asked-why tl are these people so anxious to see the " brother of the republican national com- ti mittoeman? John Potter, Dr. 'Treacy or E Morris bands could answer that question, but the probability is they will not just at this time, at least publicly, though among c party friends they are not averse to telling v why they want to see E. J. Carter, famil. iarly known as "Jack," to the tune of about $19,000. For several months the papers of Montana have contained references to "Port O.ehard." At first but few people knew what it meant, but after a time the story leaked out, and this is how the victims f tell it. In December, 1890, Thomas H.Cur- I ter was a member of congress. At that ' time Jack went out to Washington state and met Nelson Bennett, the well known I railroad contractor. Carter told Bennett that he had some inside information on the final selection of Port Orchard as a site for the dry dock the government was going to t establish on Puget sound, and told Bennett 1 he wanted him to go in with him on a land scheme in the vicinity of the proposed dry dock. Previous to this, however, Jack had l secured an option on about seventy-seven I acres of land. Helean men in the deal. I who have looked up the aiffir, say Carter secured two t: acts of land-one of. seve nty seven acres and the other of forty-three acres. The origin.al cost of the tract, they a y, was about $6,000. There wele several I transfers within a day or two, as the records show, and in the last one the i consideration was something like $21,000. 1 But to return to ternnett. Iie finally took a one-twentieth interest paying $350 for it. Carter then returned to Montana. John Potter and Chas. Snediker had already gone into the Port Orchard scheme to the extent of $2,500. With Bennett, Potter and '.nediker as a nucens, Carter then began the work of selling irnter.sts in the Po t O chard trnd Cite. Acd just here is where the Helena men allege they became victims and not speculators. The, allege that Jack showed them a letter written on a letter head of tihe ntional house of representa tires, from his brother, Thos. H. Carte , in which the followlng sentence appeared: "The Port O chard dry dock is an assured thing. ee our close oliitical friends and let them in qu the g ound floor." This the Helena investors say was a bait, but how they did nibule. The following list of "close political friends" who were "let in on the g ound floor" will show that Brother Jack knew just wheoe Brother Tom's clos est friends were located. First comes the United States district atto nay, E. D. Weed. who went in to the tune of $1,000; Iun veyor General Gee. O. Eaton,. a like amount; Presidential Eleetor F. M. Malone, the same; J. P. Woolman, ditto; T. A. Cum, mings, collector of tie po t at Fort Benton and A. C. Johnson divided up another thousand-dollar intereel; D-. Treacy tried it fo, ia thousand himself; M. Coleman, of DIeer Lodge, did the same; Mor is Bands managed to get in the pool also as did Moase Morris and Dr. Mussigbrod, of Warm Springs. The letter says he broke in. He heard of the Port O:chard scheme, and he says he wrote to Jack, telling him what a good friend he was of Brother Tom's and asking if Ie could not have a slice of the Port Orchard pie. Brother Jack kindly gave him a bite and drew on him for a thousand. The only democrat, so far as known, whom Jack gave a chance was John Worth. ' he deal was kept awful quiet, and it was not until a year had elar sed that whisieers of the for tunes the gentlemen named were going to make through Brother 'tom's f iend ship for th m cot out. But somehow or other the fortunes did not come and last February the "close p1oittial friend:" be gan to fell uneasy. No one knew cer tainly who else was in the scheme, and every once in a while a new olaimanant for a tweutieth or a thirteenth wou!d show up. Brother Jack was basking in the sunshine on the Island of Domerara and the Mon tenians say they began to "smell a mice." After a deal of trouble a meeting was held in Mr. Weed's office and notes were com posed and the "close political friends" be came convinced they had Lean "played." The federal offieiholdere gave it as thelr opinion that Brother Tom was not to blame, but the gentlemen outside the breaetwoike, who could not get even by calling the money put into Port Orchard a campaign contribution, declared that Brother Tom was as deep in the mire as Brother Jack was in the mud; that if it had not been for Brother Tom's letter Biother Jack would not have caught them. It developed at this first meeting that so far the mem bers of the syndicate had no title to any Port Orchard land, and it was determined to correspond with the county ofiosials and see how the matter stool. 'This was done, with the rboalt that it was found that the taxes on the land the pool believed it owned had not been paid and that there were about $2,2'00 in claims for surveys and maps piled up against it. It was also discovered that instead of bei:ng let in on the "ground floor" the "close nolitieal friends" had contributed about $15,000 to the exchequer Sof Brother Jack and his partners. This meeting was held last February or March. Then Jack was written to, but he did not answer estisfacterily. Later in the season Brother Jack came to lirlenia. A meeting was arranged with him at Mr. Weed's offIce at 11 a. m. on a certain mo.ning. At the appointed time the gentlemen who call thems.lrees vitims were on hau~r, bit Brother Jack did not appear. it was dis covered that he had left Ilelena the even inc before-caliled away suddenly. 'l'hen the Port Oobuhard speculators swore to have revenge, even if they could not get their money. A saubscrintion paper was started and John 1'otter wee urade the collector. Every man who said he had an intelrest in Brother Jack's scheme was called uron to subscribe $225 to pay the exenses of Mr. Potter to Washington state to see what could be done about the matter. home were for asnig the money collected iu emirloyring a lawyet and crimtinally prosecuting Brother Jack and his partnere, while others wantedl to turn the case ,rver to the county attor niy. The federal ofice holdersr i the dentl. however, advised against the two latter eugge-tiout. MAr. P'ottr collected several hundred dol Lars, bat he has not gone to Washington yet. lie was ready to go when HrutherL Tom was made chairman if the national republioas committee. Then the word was passed around that it would not hb good Poliey to posh the ease against Brother aok; that Brother Tom was in a oeltlon w*here he could ix the whole affair sa)isfao torily. and that it was best to wait. Asting on the hint Mr. Potter is still in Helena. But the campaign is almost over. Brother Jack has been in the state two weeks with a big roll of money, and the Port Orchard people have not seen him for more than a second as he rushed between a telegraph omoe and a bank. Their hopes are almost gone, and about November 12 Mr. Potter will pack his grip and go to Port Orchard. A gentleman who resides tn Seattle, and who is familiar with the Port Orchard country, ears there is going to be a dry dock established there, but that Brother Jack's land is about three miles from it, and that there, are hundreds of aereo be tween it and the government station. He says a eity the size of Chicago could as built between hhes idan, the name given Brother Jack's towneite, and the dry dock. Land a mile closer to the dry dock is being sold for $80 an acre. The same gentleman says Brother Jack has taken in some of the state lands in his townsite, and that the syndicate. if it owns anything, has net to erseed 100 aeres of land. He says it is worthless as agricultural land, and that it is covered with a very dense growth of tim ber. The same gentleman also says these are ten townsites closer to the dry dock than that of Brother Jack's. One thing atppeae to be certain, and that is unless Brother Jack anes some of B.other Tom's eampaign money among his "elose political frienads," whom he took in on the "ground floe,," Brother Tom will not go to the United Btates senate if the aforesaid '"close political friends" can prevent it, and they say they can and will, even if they are compelled to call the ceurse to their as sistance.

LONDON, Nov. 2.-In the trial of the suit for damages for slander, brought by Mrs. Leader against Mrs. Smythe yesterday, it was shown that a diamond brooch, which the latter was aecused of stealmng, was pawned the day before it was alleged to have been stolen; that the jeweler to whom it was oawned delivered it to Mrs. Smythe; that the latter wrote Mrs. Leader, demand ing £500 lawyer's fees as the price of silence; that Mrs. Leader's husband then insisted on the suit for slander. The jeweler testi fied that the brooch in controversy was similar to the one Mrs. Leader pawned, but there were many others like it. The police had issend notice concerning the missing brooch, with a picture of it. Examination showed that the all-ged stolen brooch had eight points, while the one Mrs. Leader pawned had only six. Mrs. Leader testified that the brooch was I given her by an army officer in Cairo, and positively denied that she stole Mrs. I Bmythe's broochb. When court reassembled this morning Mrs. Leader was subj,.cted to a protracted and severe croes-examination, but came out of it with flying eolors. The sympathy of the audience was evidently with her. She is a very attractive young woman. Lient. Leader then took the wit nest chair and confirmed his wife's testi mony. Mrs. Leader's servant confirmed her testimony as to her possession of the brooch in question. While in Egypt she cleaned it weekly. Her maid testified that 3 she often saw her wear it, and the wife an a rmy officer in India gave similar evidenee. Sale of the Great Ormonde. LOsDON, Nov. 2.-The fact that James Keene, some mouths ago, offered Mr. Reaan £30,(000 for O monde, only to have it re fuased, lends color to the rumor that a much higher sum was demanded. Recent defeats of Orme, Ormonde's great son, by Angelioe, militated against the value of the sire and lengthened negotiations, but the good dis play made late! by an unnamed grandson of Ormonde greatly removed the bad im pression. Charles Reod, of Tennessee, owner of the Fairview stud, had been in Argentine trying to buy the great stallion, but le was blocked by the tan Francisco horseman having obtained the refusal of the horse some time previous. The latter's agents here bad been given free hand and unlimited monny In the negotiations and had been conducting them by frequent oeblegrams between London and Buenos Ayres. Members of the Blroadwater club will meet at the eleb rooms pronmptly at seven o'clock to-night with their Cleveland hats, to take part In the parade. Grateful for Sysmpathy. WAamtNorox, Nov. 2.-The president to day requested the pnblication of the fol lowing: "Expressions of sympathy with me and my family in our great sorrow from indi viduals, from societies, fiom church con ventions, tlom political clubs of all parties, from public meetings, and, indeed, from all the people, hyve been so tender and so full of love and respect for Mrs. Harrison, that I abandon the purpose of making pe sotal acknowledgment to each. We are grateful, very grateful, for this cup of good will, and for your prayerful intercessions. May God give to each of you, in evely trial, that glase and strength which you have asked for us. BENJAMIN HARlISON." Train Robbers Foiled. IBiiiMNOItAM, Ala., Nov.. 2.-Train rob bers boa dad the East Tennessee, Virginia & Georgia train below Piedmont last night as the engine was taking water. Corve ing the baggage master with their revolvers thqy entered the express 3a:, where were gathered the engineer and others. The en gineer slipped out in the confusion and started his train and kept going at top speed until the robbes pulled the air brake cord and stopped the train and escaped, though it is thought one of them was in etred. Express Messenger Itoborts was re lieved of $700, which was the total spoils of the robbers. Forecosting a (',onrt Decision. CnIA.oo, Nov. 1.-A Washington dispatch to the New York World save that a decision of the supreme court, it is understood, will be rendered on Monday next in the fatuous suit in whioh the Illinois Central railroad and the city of Chicago, the state cf Illinois and the United States are involved, for the possession of the immensely valuable lake front in the business center of Chicago, with riparian rights and harbor pi ivileges. It understands the dscision is a victory for the Illinois Central. The Tribune, of this city, however, learns that the decision is in favor of Chicago. Good itesult of Arbitration. NEw OaEANHs, Nov. 2.-The strike of the draymen, warehousemen and other laborers has been deslared off and the strikers re turned to work this morning. 'lhe arbitra tion committee, representing the merchants and the trades council, reachid an agree iient as to wages and hrours at three o'clock this morning, and she strike was deolared otff.

If Strikers in the Guise of Marshals Interfere Trouble Will Follow. Republioan Heelers Will Not Be Allowed to Control the Eleotion. On Their Heads Will Be the Re]sponsl bllity If They Attempt to Usurp State Powers. NEw Yoswt, Nov. 2.-Within the twenty four hours last passed birth has been given to elements which may come together iii this city on eleetion day with a sharp crash. One of the elements is the announced ad herenoe, by Attorney General Miller, to the custom of the past, under Judge Bradley's declaion, in accordance with which federal supervisors of election passed anywhere they deemed wise within election enclo sures. 'I he other and opposing element lies in the fact that Lient.-Gov. Sheehan, bhairman of the New York atite democratic campaign committee, has issued an address to the democrats of the state, in which he cites Judge Brewer's decision and calls on democrats to see to it that federal super visors do not enter the beoths. Judge Brewer, of the United States supreme court, has ruled that supervisors had no right to enter booths or go behind the en closure where the ballot boxes are. Secretary Defreest, of the demo cratic state commmittee, speaking to-day of Miller's circular and Sheehan's opposing order to democrats, said he believed fed eral officials had no right in the booths and they would not be allowed to go there. He said the democrats would see to it that they staid outside the enelosure where the booths and ballot boxes are, and this construction foreshadows a possible clash of the two el ements referred to Tuesday next. It has been ascertained that the law officers of the department of justiee at Washington have carefully examined the statutes and opin ions rendered in eases arising out of alleged violations of election statutes before yes terday's circular was issued by Attorney General Miller. In ex-parte Sioebold et al., the Bradley decision held that national and state jurisdictions were concurrent, but wherever a conflict occurred the former was supreme. It is held that the law author izing deputy marshals to keep the peace at national elections is not unconstitutional and the national government has the right to use physical force in any part of the United States to carry into execution the powers conferred upon it. The leaders of both parties here to-day have eanu further informed from Wash. inatoA that Acting Attorney General A!d rich sent the following telegram to United States Marshal Walker, at Montgomery, Ala., this afternoon, in response to a re quest for instructions: "See last pare graph of circular mailed you to-day. [Ise u your discretion, remembening and so in structing vcur deputies that they are peace officers and not partisans, and that the law was enacted to secure a free and honest ballot and a fair count." ON REPUHIICAN HEAD& Will Be the R.esponelblity If They Interfere. NEW Yonx, Nov. 2,-A poster to-night was sent out by the democratic state committee all over the state by tens of thousands. It is almost two by three feet and is printed in flaring writing, the heading is "Demo crats Enforce the Law." Attention is called to the law regarding United States marshals at polling booths and to the federal super vision of elections. The poster ends with the following: "Democrats, enforce the provisions of the law to the letter, and stand on ,our rights as American citizens. Do not permit re publicans to use rooms or buildings within fifty feet of the polling paiece for the pur pose of bribing voters. You have the power to prevent it and it is your duty to arrest all such malefactors." "This circular means," said a democrat, "that there will be no monkey work. I am afraid there may be some shooting on elec tion day if the republicans attempt any foolishness." "This means," satd a re publican who is actively connected with the prosecutious brought in the United rtates court yesterday. "that the democrats have made up their minds to carly the state by money, fraud and force. Talk of the force bill! If the plans which come to our ears are carried out there should be a force bill in this state now." HILL DEMOCRATS. Should Heed the Advice of Their Great F'avorte. SCHNErTADY, N. Y., Nov. 2.--Senator Hill spoke here last evening to a packed house. lie said that in the triumph of 1884 old war issues pt ".,s d to the rear and new issues were brourht to the frent. The country was then harmonized and pacified, under the able administration of Grover Cleve land, to the credit of the democratic party. Senator Hill showed an illustration of how the many pay for the few under the preselnt tariff. The man who complaias of taxation is just the man. Democracy dore not do anud free trade. "I am not in favor of free trade." said the senator. "but I want freer and fairer trade. Revision is what we want, and not a destruction of tariff. The democrats do not propose to reduce the wages of the workmagman. The laboring man needs high wages and I am glad wages in this country are higher than in any other country. We have prospered under the McKinley bill, but not on account of it; rather In spite of It." In conclusion. Senator Hill spoke of the eclise law and of the new epportionment, and declared the democracy of New York state would be in eaxcellent condition for the fight. "Either LUenjamin IHarrisoa or Grover Cleveland will be elected president of the United etates. It is either party priuciple or party plunder. 1)o your share, my friends; do your duty, and the right will triumph." tlsrrlion's Mope (;one. 1)INVrn.

Toole spoke next and made one of the best speeches delivered here. It was the first speech the governor has made this campaign, but demonstrated that he has lost none of his oratorical ability. He said the campaign in 1890 was fought upon the - question of rebuking the fraudulent eleo tion of two senators, had resulted in a dem o: atic victory, and the same issues con fronted the people to-day. Three men in strumental in perpetrating the steal, Blake, a Rickards. Wmr. Hhll, had the andacity , again to come before the people for suf frage. They should be sileneed under an avalanch of votes. Riskards, when nom inate , had asked his friends to make no f defense for him. His speeches now are nothing but a series of explanations and he Spints himself in a moreglowing light than any republican orator dared. T'he tariff I, question was ably handled by the governor, i who, in unmeasured terms, denounced re publican class legislation which enriches the few at the expense of the many. d e spoke at some length on the silver 7. question and advised the populiste to cast 'n their lot with the democratic party, which has aiways legidlated towards tree silver. With victory in eight he urged them to stay al by the party of the people and not vote for Sr a man who cannot possibly be elected. He closed by paying an eloquent tribute to Dixon, and ca ling on all loyal democrats 4 to remain true to their convictions and wd ork hard for the success of the ticket, top et to bottom. Hardly a person left the house a while the governor wee speaking, so great was the interested manifested. 'to-night's as splendid rally shows where Cascade eenntr 1, will be found election day.

The band played and ifty-four persons went to the con: t house to hear the speaking. Col. Bradshaw spoke first. He gave no argument for supi of ting Bozeman and told the audience to vote fo their own interests. Hon. C. P. BIakely followed and misquoted the house journal. He said the Higgins bill provided for the agricultural college at Miles City and that Helena did not vote for our interests in re ferring it to a special com miate,. lie made the fatal error of eading Moan's name as voting with Helena. Loud also voted with Moran, but Blakely did not read his name, having been warned by stumbling onto Moran's name. The bill provided for the agrlcultural school at Bozeman and not Miles City. as all read,rs of the papers know down here. The orowd wasdownto twenty when Blakely finished, so the third gentleman did not speak. Hundreds of Helena badges have been worn on the street to-day. Nothing was accomplished by the meeting.
