Cnrokoo, Nov. 28.-Wm. C. Lincoln, ex member of the board of trade, who is a juror in a special assessment suit for build ing a large sewer, to cost nearly a million dollars, was charged in open court this morning with attempting to secure bribes from both property owners and the city. The matter caused a sensation. This morning Attorney Walker stated to the court that he had reliable information that some sewer contractors, who had the promise of a contract, had succeeded in getting four men on the jury. Attorney Kellogg said in riding down in an elevator with Juror Ed ward Wood, the latter said, "You attorneys are getting big money out of this case, and we jurors are only getting $2 per day." The court ordered the members of the jury before him, one by one. In the investiga tion that ensued T. H. Andrews, a juror, admitted that he bad tried to raise money, and sild Juror Van Allen had also. Van Allen denied the truth of the statement. Lincoln was sentenced to one year's im ptrisonment in the county jail for contempt of court. The juror's contempt lay in the fact that he made no less than half a dozen attempts to obtain a bribe from attorneys on both sides of the case. The court also discharged the remainder of the jury from further duty. Lincoln admitted having tried to obtain bribe money, but said he hadn't a suspicion of doing anything wrong.

A Ponplar Helens Gentleman MarrieJ an Iowa Belle. The State Register, of Des Motnes Iowa, contains the following, dated Winterset, Nov. 1$, which will be read with interest by Helena people; "The Rook city never had a lovelier wed ding than the marriage of Miss Leonore Murray to Mr. Emmerson B. Weirick at the First Bautist church last evenming at eight o'cloek. The church was decorated in, the rarest good taste-there was nothing gor geous nor showy. The officiating clergyman was Rev. W. E. Stanley, of Des Moines. The beautiful Episoosal ceremony was used. The Lohengrin bridal chorus, song by eight young misses, was led by Mise Grace Gilninon the piano, aceompanied by Mr. G. W. Maxnon, of Des Moines, on the cello. The chorus was composed of the Misses Eva Gilpin, Jessne Briggs, Jessie Snyder, Lillie Sporgeon, Edith Hyder. Vena Forsman, Bertie Foreman and Eflite Turner. The music was fauitlessly ren dered and was a beautiful substitute for tht wedding marabh. The ushers were Messrs. Tom Brown, Ed. Newton, Dr. Robert Davidson, and John Adams, of Des Moines. The front row of chairs in the church were reserved for the ont-of-town guests and the immediate friends of the contracting par ties, and small gates covered with smilax were opened and closed by fairy-like little girls. The little flower girls were Misses Alice Dabney, Lodie Ratelif, Cherry Hide and Gertrude Nelson, and they followed in the wake of the chorus singers. The churoh was filled with the leading people of Win terset, and every arrangement seemed to be most complete. 't'he out-of-town guests were Hon, and Mrs. Johnson and Miss Stevens. of Lincoln, Neb.; Charles Larra bee, Cleremont, Ia.; J. H. Weirick, brother of the groom, Columbus. 0.; T. F. Ward, Primghar; Edward Ward, South Dakota; A. C. Atkinson, Montana; Miss Wade, Antioch, Mo.; Prof. Garrett, Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Mozon, Miss May Griftis. Mr. and Mrs. L. Young and Lafe, Jr., Des Moinee. The bride wore a dress of white brocade satin, with veil and orange blossoms. Miss Maud Murray, bridesmaid, was clad in a dress of corn-colored satin with illusion. Both young ladies possess rare beauty and neither ever before looked more charming. The "best man" was a brother of the groom. After the wedding ceremony was concluded a reception was given at the splendid home of Heon. A. R. Dabney, uncle of the bride. The guests at the reception numbered up into the hundreds, and Mr. and Mrs. Dab ney entertained them all in a most delight ful and hospitable way. The bride is the eldest daughter of the late Hon. B. F. Mur ray and her mother is our present county recorder. The family is highly res:ected in Madison county and the best wishes of all will go with Mrs. Wirrick to her new home in Helena, Mont.. where the groom has most fortunate business relations. At the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, at 8 o'clock yesterday morning, the ceremony was performed which united in marriage John P. Dolan, of Butte, and Miss May E. Grogan, of tock Island. Ill., Rev. Father Palladino officiating. The ceremony was witnessed by a large number of friends of the contracting parties. After the services at the church the bridal party repaired to the home of Mrs. Reilly, on Cutler street, where an elegant wedding breakfast was served, which was enjoyed by a large num ber of invited guests, who vied with each other in wishing the newly wedded pair long life and happiness. The bride was attired in a cream-colored gloria silk, on train, white tulle veil; natural nlowere. The maid of honor, Miss Sarita De Islus Noriga, wore cream China silk, demi taiu, natural flowers. Miss Mary Beadle, the bridesmaid, wore a dress of cream crepe de chine; natural flowers. Mr. John Golden acted as best man. Among the many beautiful presents re ceived was a silver tea net from the Helena Catholic Dramatic club. The groom is a contractor and builder at Butte, for which city the happy couple left yesterday after noon. CANNOT GiVE HIM UP. The ilapt'as or Helena Will Retain Their Hard- Working Paster. On Wednesday evening, Nov. 16, lRev. C. B. Allen, Jr., pastor of the Baptist church in this city, gave his people his resigna tion, to take effect Dec. 15. On the Sunday following, the church by a unanimous vote inst.ucted the board of deacons to present to him the hearty protest of the member ship in the following paper: "We very muci regret that for any rea son our beloved pastor should have prof fered his resignation, as we feel sure that no member of the church shares in his opinion that his work here is done. The church has greatly prospered under his leadership. Financially he has led us to do wonderful work. The debt ($7,700) which hung over us like a cloud, when he came to use, is paid, and in addition we have changed from tho attitude of beneficiary to that of benefactor toward the same, beside the numerous gifts and other services ren dered to other' interests in our Master's cause in Montana and elsewhere. "We attribute this good lesult to the wise and eneruotie 'under shepherd' who, while having directly little to do with church finances, has skillfully touched and en thused that part of the membership by whom this work lihas been done. Socially the church has gained immeasurably with the good people of the community, so that to-day we are accorded the highest respect by Christian people and otheis throughout the state. Spiritually we have been advanced even mole remarkably than in either of the lilies already mentioned, and for this we are deeply grateful to Bro ther Allen and to the holy spirit who has led him in and out before tus for seven years. We recognize in Rev. Ct, B. Allen, Jr., a character that exemplifies the gospel which he preaches so well. We realize, too, that he is a student and that he is in con stint communication with the Father in his preparation to come before the people with his word of life. Every sermon evinces this fact: every prayer and praise service attests this truth. We are therefore very desirous to retain his servioes to this city and to our gieat Htate:, lnd to this end earnestly ask that hi reconsider the matter of his resignation." Last evening Mr. Allen thanked the church heia tily for this most flattering expreesion, and though he had determined to give uli the charge, he was induced by the unauimiools vote to recall his resigna tion, and will remain in lelloina. trelaxilang q.la)ranthn Inules.

NO PRILE TO GAIN IN WA, , Therefore Germany Will Not Pro. voke a Conflict With Any Other Power. That Country Was Not Respon sible for the War With France in 1870. Caprivi Denise That Bismarck Falsifled a Dispatch, as the Letter Recently Claimed-Army Bill. Brsu...l, Nov. 38.-The long looked for event of the precept session of the reich stag occurred to~ ay. The army bill was introduced by Chancellor von Caprivi. He said be did not intend to justify the hill by referring to War inseight or by indulging in gloomy forebodinga. He added: "I will disclose the whole truth. We are at peace with all nations and encounter no difficulty in any quarter in imaintaining the dignity of the nation. His majesty the emperor has ~uetly remarked that Heligoland was the last piece of the globe we desired to ac quire. Germany will not provoke war, for there is no prize to gain by victory. But neither will she undertake to prevent war as she did in 1870." The chancellor then referred to the alleged forgery by Prince Bismarck of the famous Ems dispatch which precipitated the Franco-German war and read the genuine dispatch. The chan cellor also read the draft Prince Bismarck prepared, which appeared in the North-Ger man Gazette of July 18, 1870, and which read as follows: "After the news of the renunciation of the hereditary prince of Hohenzollern was officially communicated to the imperial French government by the royal Spanish government, the French ambassador at Ems further demanded of his majesty the king of Prussia to authorize him to tele graph to Paris that his majesty the king engages for all the future never again to roturt to their candidature. His majesty the king thereupon declined to receive the French ambassador again, and had him told by the adjutant in attendance that his majesty had nothing further to communi cate to the ambassador." The last sentence of the above is what Prince Bismarck alleges he forged with the intention of so wounding the amour propre of France that she would declare war against Germany, and thus allow him, in the event of a Prussian victory, to bring aboun the formation of the German empire. Caprivi declared emphatically that Prince Bismarck had not falsified the dispatch, and that it was untrue that King William was too conciliatory, or had not struck the proper note in dealing with France. King Willia., he said, even as late as July 3, 1870, had a dispatch sent to the German minister at Paris intimating that he was indignant at the Duo de Grammont's demand, ad dressed to him through M. Benedetti, and reserved any further steps. The whole of Europe was of the same opinion as Ger many at that time, as shown by Gladstone's declaration and Prince Gortschakoff's dis patch to the Russian ambassador. "I refer to those matters," said Chancel lor von Caprivi, "in order toshow that Ger many did not play a provocative part. The French love wars and glory and the more complete their armaments, the stronger grows their self-consciousness and desire to conclude an alliance, naturally not for de fensive purposes, but with a view to revis ion of the map of Europe." Referring to Russo-German relations the chancellor said the present czar as one of noblest minded and most peaceful of mon arche, and appreciates the peaceful and loyal policy of Germany. "In Russia. how ever, hostile currents are working against us, but it must not be concluded that be cause Russia is developing her army war is imminent. From her preparations we must assume that Russia's next war will be to the westward. Undeniably there is a rap prochement between Russia and France, in the face of which we cannot yield Alsace Lorraine, nor break off relations with Aus tria. The strengthening of our armaments constitutes no threat to Russia. We only want to repel possible attack. We unest think of war with the possibility of having to present two f onts. We are not prepared for such exigency. We would have to de fend ourselves ngainst superior numbers. We have the highest opinion of our allies and the dreibund is nowhere so popular as in Germany, but even the dreibund is weaker in troops than France and Russia." '1 he chancellor then proceeded to explain the proposed reforms in military service, and referring to the measure by which he proposed to.meet increased expenditures, he stated the beer tax would scarcely be felt as it amounted to only two-fifths of one pfennig per litre. "We desire," he said, "to enforce universal servive etfectn ally, but considerately. The bill, perhaps, is unwelcoOme, but war, perhaps defeat, woruld be much worse. After such reverse a political and economic struggle would arise involving our very existence. 1 nr pnal to tie house to enable the nation to say in time of future wars: 'Lieb Faterland Marist du Ruhig Sein.'"

His father, being a lumberman, sent him into the forest with the great crews of men numbering several hundred, when he was 12 vears of age, where he remained seven or eight months of the year. He pursued this method of life until he was 18--an exper ience which he claims has been invaluable. He then determined to gain an education by his own efforts. He studied at the Cherryfield acalemy, attended a private school of languages for two years at Con cord, N. 1[., and took a four years' course at the Maine Central institute, meanwhile supportinr himself by staving out the suring term and driving logs on the Penob scot or Connecticut rivers. He kept up with his classes by studying Latin and Greek by the camp fire at night. The next two veats were spent in teach ing and the study of law. He started to go through the law department of Boston uni versity, supporting himself by shorthand reporting, but was persuaded to enter the Christian ministry. and for this purpose studied three years at the Bangor theo logical seminary. He was ordained to the ministry in Pepperell, Mass., in November, 1880, and was pastor there for seven years. He received an invitation to preach in Dorchester with the privilege of study and went to Boston for contact with a great city, was closely associated with its libraries, courses of lectures and educa tional institutions, when he was called to the First Parish church, Charlestown dis trict. He will not enter on his active labors as pastor of the Concregational church of this city till after the 18th of December. STATE NEWS. Continuing the Official Canvass In Deer lodge.

Hildreth and May Stick to the Al legatione in Their Affi davits. The (ffleer Denles Point Btlank Their Itatemen.s-The Other BIranch of the Inquiry To lie heard, ' he city council committee on the poliee department, consisting of Chairman Har rity and Messrs. Morris and Howell, yester day investigated the charges brought against Police Officer Barrett by Wm. lill dreth and Chaa. May. and also the charges made by Officer Barrett against the police department. The hearing was held in Judge Gage's court room and was public. Mr. Barrett was represented by Attorneys Clements and Purcell, while County Attor ney Nolan, at the request of Mayor Curtin, Irepresented the police department. Only the charges against Barrett were in vestigated yesterday, the committee decid ing, in view of the serious nature of the allegations made by the officer against the department, that an important witness. now in St. Joe, Mo., must be brought to Helena before that branch of the investiga tion is gone into. The inquiry into the charges againat Barrett was concluded and the committee will make its report at the next meeting of the council. The charges made by Hildreth and May were in the form of an affidavit. In their statement they allege that some time be tween July 20 and July 30 they saw Police man Alex. Barrett go through the pockets of a man lying drunk back of the two-story building adjoining the Power block on Sixth avenue. They further charged that Barrett left the man, but later came back and rearranged his pockets, which appeared to have been left inside out. Both men were present yesterday and testified under oath. They do odd jobs, such as scissor grinding, saw sharping, etc., and have their place on Park avenue, . not far from Sixth avenue. Hildreth testified first, and at the request of Officer Barrett's attorney May was kept out of the room while his partner was on the stand. Accord ing to Hildreth's story on the morning in question he got up about 4 o'clock, and while out in the yard he saw Officer Barrett do the act alleged in the afidavit. Hildreth was subjected to a rigid and puzzling cross examination by Attorney Clements, but his first story was not shaken in the most trivial detail. Asked why he had allowed four months to elapse between the time he saw the alleged offense committefi Officer Barrett and the time he made the affidavit, he said he and his partner talked the matter over time and time again, and while they wanted to do what was right, they did not know just what to do. He did not see the officer take anything out of the pockets of the drunken man, they finally concluded that the best thing for them to do was to put the matter in writing and give it to the mayor; if the officer was all right, and the man was a friend of Barrett's, no harm could come to anyone; if otherwise, the mayor was the proper person to find out where the blame belonged. An attempt was made by Bar rett's attorneys to connect some member of the police force with the preparation of the affilavit, but the witness denied that such was the case, and all attemprts to get a statement to that effect from him were - fruitless. The story told by Charles Iny of the oc currence referred to in the nlffidavit tallied in the minutest detail with that told by Hildreth, and like his partner, a close cross examination failed to shake his story. This witness also was ipositive that he had said nothing to any member of the police force, nor they to him of the allegations in the affidavit, until after he had given it to the mayor. Officer Barrett testified in his own be half. denying in every detail the charge made by Hildreth and May. He said no had never been at the place where it was alleged he had committed the offense, save once, when he followed Mlay and Hildieth, whom he thouoht had stolen some hose. He testified that on further investigation he found they had not stolen the hose. Beyond the fact that he had been told by various persolna that they were suspicious characters, and that he so regarded them, the oficer said he knew nothing about them. As a reason for their making an un true charge against him, Mr. Barrett said that on the night of the hose incident after he had followed them to their home, and they told him where they got the hose, and he had found they had told the truth about it, he met May on the corner of Sixth avenue and Main street. May asked him if he had satisfied himself the matter was straight and the officer said he had.
