GANS & IKLEIN MONTANA AT THE FAIB, How Opinions Differ in Regard to the State Building at Chicago. Some Say It Is a Credit and Others Hold Just the Reverse. The Managers Estimate That They Will Need About $85,000 More to Com plete Their Work. The Montana World's fair building at Chicago is disouesed by everyone who goes to the fair city, but there is a lack of una nimity as to whether it is worth the $15.000 it cost. A great many people who have esen it say it is worth all it cost, and while it is emall in comonrleon with the struct ures of those states that have put from $50,000 to $100.000 in their state buildings, yet it is a creditable affair, excellently well arranged and nicely located. On the other hand, gentlemen who have visited Chicago and returned to Montana have criticised the Montana building severely, alleging that it is poor in design and construction and not worth the sum paid for it. Execu tive Commissioner Bickford, talking of the matter yesterday, said many men in whose judgment he had confidence, who had seen the building, had expressed themselves as greatly pleased with it, saying it was worth all the state had paid for it. Mr. Bickford said he had written a day or two ago to Chief of Construction Bornham. of the World's fair, and asked him to examine the Montana building, and then write to the board and tell the members whether or no he thought they had been swindled in pay. Ing $15,000 for it. Mr. Bickford is in re ceipt of two letters from Chicago, giving the views of two gentlemen on the Mon tens building. The first is from H. N. Nicholson, now in charge of the structure, arnd it is as follows: "I noticed some criticisms, both in the Montana and Chicago newspaoers. regard ing the Montana state building at the World's fair. and particularly by Mayor Higgins, of Missoula, who the papers quote as examining the building during the month of December; and who said that such a building could be built for about $5.Ou. If his honor can build such struc tures as our Montana building at eoch flinres he can get all the contracts he wishes to handle right here in Chicago; but what bothers me is, when did Mr. Higgins examine the building? Mr, Minokler, who had chaoge here before I camne, declares he was not around, as no one could get in our building without his knowledge, and I am positive Mayor Higgina did not come in since my arrival, unless it was during the night time. I think when Montana people will visit the fair they will find our build ing will compare favorably with any on the rmounds, and more so thnl a great many. Of course, it does not loom up as large as either the Now York, Marsachusetti or I'ennevlvania buildings, tnht Cost from $135,000 up to $300,000, but never theless it is as suitable for the occasion as could be secured for the money. This is also the opinion of a number of contractors and superintendents of buildings, who are at work on tlhe fair grounds." Another letter on the same subject from Chras. It. Leonard. says: "As I was returning from the east several weeks ago I stopped off in Chicago for a few days and visited the World's fair buildings. It is a big thing and a credit to the United itates. We saw the Montana ,uilding, rind having seen some criticism in tie Iar uore about it, were particular to ox atlririn it. and see how mouch truth was in the criticisms offetred. \h bile the aplro trintion would out permit of a grand builduing. I think that a very creditable showing aus boeen made for the monley at hand. I lbo ,uilding is neat, and when filled with the great exhibit which is being lros osed, will be a iredit to the state and a plance which the people of Montana can point to with pride. 1 coneide- it superior to Ia numbenlir of the state billdings, and i Itink tha:t if ro.ne of its critics could see it truer would be able to write mnore intelli gent antlut'es about it. I would like to see evely (iizen ofi the state use his influence t millllo the Montana exhibit a snooses." TillE MONEY ASK El) FOR. tWorld's Fair .Manoers Need About $83, 000 More. Yesterdny the joint committee of the house and senate to consider what addi tional tapcropriation is necessary to make the Montana exhibit at Chicago a sucoess had a confereuunc with Comnnmiesioner Dick ford and members of thll bonrd in regard to the aebject. The board of manageri submitted o to the committee an estimate oi the amount theoy consi.lered necoesary tc entry the work to a tlucesisful isnue. iJ h totil $85,L8i5.

WEALTIY FATHER IN BUTTE. So Runs the Story of a Woman in Dilstress int Chicago. lcl.Aoo, Jan. 1G.-A local paper prints a rather remarkable story of a young woman calling herself Mrs. John Sharon, who ap plied to the relief and aid society yesterday for assistance. She said she never saw her father and her mother died a week after she was born. She was adopted by Jewett W. Adams. who was afterwards mayor of Virginia City and governor of Nevada. She was given every advantage and at the age of fourteen was sent to the Mills academy for young ladies at Oakland. While there she met John Sharon, a nephew of Senator Sharon, and when she was 15 they were married. They lived happily a number of years and had three children, the eldest of whom is now thirteen years of age. Her husband had a good position in a Virginia City mine, Riven him by the senator. Two years ago her husband died, leaving her practically nothing. She had $2,000 left her by a brother, whom she discovered after she married, and who died before her husband. She says she appealed to the Sharon family, but they declined to have anything to do with her. A year ago she went to El Paso, Texas, on a visit and there met a handlsomo Span iard, Joseph Lopez, with whom she becanime infatuated and married in a short time. A few months ago Lopez decided to come to Chicago, alleging that he could make good money there during the fair. Four months ago, on pretense of a business scheme, he induced her to give him $1.800 she had put away, and deserted her and her children. Since then she has been struggling along doing virious kinds of work, but yesterday was forced to apply for aid for herself and children. She says she accidently heard of her father a few months ago, when he at tended a convention at Butte, Mont. The newspaper article she saw about him stated that he is wealthy, but she added: "I can not feel that 1 have any claim on him now." CIVIC AND MILITARY HONORS. Given Gen. Ilutler. Foremost Citizen-Sol dier of lMassachusetts. LowEr.i.

From three o'clock this morning Huntington hball, whole the remains lay inl state, was besieged by a pushing, jostling crowd. The crnsh was indescribable. Women fainted, children were trampled on, and still there were many who were turned away uneatiitted. Long before the hour of the services in the churobh, the sidewalks were crowded and when the bole was caI- riod from the hall across the street, fully 3:l,i00 people we:o within sight.

REPUBLICAN FINANCIERS: Cleveland Left Harrison $100,000,. 000, the Latter Will Leave a Deficit Behind Him. No Debt Paid It It Could Be Put Off by Any Sort of Excuse. Twenty-Seven Millions Appropriated for Publlo Il.ildings Used for Other Pur poses-WVhat the Outcome? WAuRIINOTON, Jan. 10.-The sub-commit tee of the ways and means committee on the investigation of the condition of the treasury expects to receive, the latter part of this week, a large amount of informs tlan for treasury experts. Treasury ofil ciale have been at work steadily for three weeks on the report. It can be said on good authority that the treasury statement will not show a deficit in the treasury, or the probability of one during the present fiscal year, but a close analysis is expected to show that Secretary Foster at times has had a hard task "making both ends meet," and his successor will be likely, unless re lieved by legislation at this session rais ing additional revenue, to have even a harder task, with pensions steadily increasing. Secretary Foster in formed the members of congress that theme will be an available balance in the treseury July 1 next, of $200,000,000. The balance, however, includes nothing for a sinking fund on which there are annual require ments of $48,000,000. Democratic members of congress expect to show that there have been times when a deficiency was only prevented by the pol icy of not paying anything to-day which could be put off until to-morrow. Not it single new public building was provided for during this eongress, but there still remains over $14,000,000 to be expended on account of public buildings, and $11.000.000 against which there are no outstanding contracts. There were other matters also in which the government revenues made it necessary for the treasury to "go slow" for fear that, for the first time in many years, the balance would be on the wrong side of the ledger. On the result of the investigation will de pend whether or not the ways and means committee will recommend legislation in creasing revenues at this session. The present plan regarded as most expedient is to increase the whisky tax. This increase would raise over $35,000,000 additional yearly, if the law could be so framed as to effect whisky in bond. Many persons pre fer to revise the whole taxing system at once. What will be the outcome of course is uncertain at this time, but matters may soon develop by action on the part of the ware and means committee. STATE LAND GORANTS. Provision to Allow States to Get Desirable Tracts. WAenmaoTON, Jan. 16.-[Special. --Ever since the admission of the four new states there has been more or less trouble ex perienced by their officers in the selection of lands which were granted to them. Theo law will not allow the states to sell lands until after surveys have been made, and surveys are not made until the lands are settled upon, and the states lose the best of them. Representative Wilson, of Wash ington, has been able to secure the follow ing provision attached to the survey appro priation of the sLndry civil bill, which will allow the states to select the lands they are entitled to: "That the states of North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Idaho end Washington shall have a preference right over any person or corporation to select lands granted to said states, by the act of congress approved Feb. 22, 1889, for a period of sixty days after lands have been surveyed and duly declared to be subject to selection and en try under the general land laws of the United States; provided, that such prefer ence right shall not accrue against bona fide or pre-emption settlers on railroad lands at the date of filing plat of survey of any township in any local land office of said states."

PERSELL AND GALLAGHER. Ioth Men Training liard for Their Fight on the 27th. Itid Gallagher and Charley Persell, the welterweights who are to contest before the Helena Athletio club on the night of Fri day, the 27th, are training hard. Galla gher. who is being handled by Frank Free man, has engaged a room on north Main street, opposite the Windsor, and has it fitted up with punching bag. dumb bells, clubs, jumping rope and other accessories to the tarinin of a pugilist. lie and Free man put in two hours regularly every after noon there, and in addition to using all the gymnastic aplaliances named, they box and wrestle. Outdoor exercise is not neglected, either. After a light and early breakfast, Gallagher and his trainer take a brisk walk or run for abont fifteen miles. There is another short walk after supper, and nine o'clock every night finds Gallagher in bed. Persell still follows his own inclinations about training, making his walks just as long as his fancy dictates. When he spare with Ike Hayes at the latter's quarters on Jackson street, he carries out the eamne idea, stopping when he has had enough. Punching bags. jumping ropes, etc., also enter into his system of training. Persell was in the tip-top of condition when he net Jim lurus. Immediately after that tight, he hegan training Haves, and the la bor invoived in that kept him in good shape. ''he mens light at catch weights and will enter the ring within a pound or two of each other.

(Gallakher holds the title of welterweight champion of Montana, never having had occasion to sacrifice it to anyone ie e has uet yet. Additional inter est is added to the match by the fact that the winner will have to meet the man who conies out best in the Needham-Maber fight at Butte. 'The sports of the smoky city hold Gallagher high in their estima tion. and a special tra:n will be run from there the day of the corrtest. Fhue rseeting will take place on the stags of the opera house, with live-ounce gloves, anti the winner will get $1;00 and the loser X100.

THE BARDEN LAND CASE Will Come Up for Argument Before the Supreme Court This Week. Confusion Alleged to Exist in the Briefs Prepitrod for the People. Cnouset for the RaIIroad on IIard in eall iForee--ir. hhlelda Will Opplose '1 hem. Hr. I'AJr., Jan. 16.---[pecial.l--A Wash Ington special to the l'inrreer Prese says: 'I he case of the Northern Paciiio railroad ag(aint lHardrn, involving the construction of the railroad granting act with reference o excepted mineral lands, will be argued in the supreire coout this week. This ease Iae burrn oprosecuted by the state of Mon tana ,p to the present time, but it now seems that the case of the state has been practically abandoned, as nlone of its repre sentatives are here to look after it. Major Mngirlnis, the mineral land commissioner of the state, is at Helena, as is also Congress. man Dixon, the attorney for the state. The Northern 'rcillo people are on hand in full force. CIl. McNaugyt, the new general counsel of the road, ex-Attorney General Garland end James Carter, the eminent New York lawyer, spoken of as the proba ble attorney general under Cleveland, will look after the Northern Pacifio's interests before the court. The absence of Attorney Dixon and Land Cormmissioner Maginnis at this Imr ortant crisis is looked upon as a practical abandonment of the case by the people of Montana. Necretary Noble's legal advisor, Assistant Attorney General Shields, will appear fer the United States. The attorneys for Mon tana have filed briefs, each of which seems to be more or less antagonistic to the other, and none of them agree with the attorney general's brief as to the proper construe tion of the law. In the midst of this ap parently hopeless confusion, and in the absence of the state's representatives, the railroad will be quite likely to have a walkover. The ease is one of the most important that has come to the supreme court from Montana in ttre history of that state or ter ritory. The deoision will settle the claims of the Northern Paciflc railroad to several millions of acres of land claimed by the people of Montana to be mineral, and therefore to be excepted from the grant. STATE NEWS. The Case of Contestant Knapp Throwa Out of Court. MISSOvLA, Jan. 16.-[Speolal.]-Judge Brantley to-day rendered a decisilon in the contested election ease of L. J. Knapp vs. F. W. McConnell. This was given on a motion to quash, made by McConnell's at torneys. The motion was sustained and the case ordered dismissed. The grounds on which the motion was granted were that the notice of contest was not filed with him the statutory time, and the notice was of no value inasmuch as it did not designate any court, time or place in which the de fendant was to appear. This settles the case as far as the district court is con cerned, but it has been intimated that it will be carried to the supreme court. Guilty of Forgery. LIrNrnoTON, Jan.
