While the weather for a few days has been all that the most ex - acting could expect, early this morning a drizzling %-ain set in,' which spoiled the effect of the decorations. Despite the weather, however, the en hands thusiasm of the assembled thousands was not dampened in the least, and the presi dent said it reminded him of the time he spent here during" the campaign when he was the running mate to the lamented McKinley. The president was escorted to the high school building, where he witnessed the evolutions of the pupils of Helena's schools and listened to their rendition of patriotic airs. The march to the state capitol was then resumed. There the president met the members of the legislature.

Large Blocks Bought From Weak Holders in the Recent Bear : ' Market. Special to The Journal. New York, May 27.J. J. Hill ia repotted to' nave largely increased bis holdings of Erie stock in the past few days. The feature of the market in the recent bear campaign has been the remarkable resiliency of the Erie issues, and in the closing prices of Monday Erie stocks actually closed fractionally higher, while all other stocks were from i% to 4 points lower. Since then the stock has been' strong, and the explanation now offered is that the Hill sup port was concentrated in it, and the result is the shifting of good blocks of :Brie from, the of weak holders to th,i western railroad magnate. v The most interesting thing that could happen In Erie would be the dissolution of the voting trust, and the return of the control of the prop erty to the stockholders. But before this can come about the dividend must be increased On the first preferred. Additional buying by thement. Hill interests can mean only one thingthe physical rejuvenation of the property, which sug gests final dissolution of the voting trust. The latest report is tha t the selling of United States Steel, which was traced home to a big man in the company, was due not to any weak ness in bis position on steel proper, but to the fact that he had extended his lines in & specula tive way beyond his own confines and "into St. Paul. Wben the break came in St. Paul to 148%, he was obliged to let go his holdings in. that stock, and in the meantime, the banks hav ing learned of his heavy commitment In St. Paul and fearing for his general position, called his loans, for which he had Steel stock up as col and this brought liquidation in both stocks. The best opinion now in the street is that the worst is over and that the support of the large financial interests averted a disastrous decline, which might have ran into a panic. No further heavy declines are looked for so long as the large Interests maintain their present position of united support. The buying of Union Pacific and Southern Pa cific by Euhn, Loeb & Co. has been extensive and, is said to be for Harriman. James R. Keene is also credited with large purchases of these 6tocks on a scale. The ex ceptional strength of the Erie shares is attrib uted to some buying by the above mentioned fac tors as' well as to Hill. Statements of the coal roads will soon begin to compare with the period of the great anthracite strike of last year and are expected to make a phenomenal showing. Hence shrewd men' are bullish ia these issues despite the current investigation of the hard coal combine by the Interstate commerce commission.

New York, May 27.By drawing a re volver and threatening to kill any man who dared to open the doors of a com partment in which a gang of men were working in the northern tube of the North river tunnel, Superintendent Brady saved his own' life and thji:lives of fourteen other men in the compartment and pre vented the flooding of the tunnel. Brady had been, ejpaecting a break in the roof of the "bfe *hofe" and when it came and the w#te*s$egan, $ofirihg". in he quickly pushed his coatr.-vest-*nd hat into the aperture, Nearly all of the,men were Italians and became panic stricken. They made a rush for the door of the compart Brady, pointing his revolver at the man nearest the door, threatened to kill him if he moved another step. The opening of *the doors would have permitted the compressed air in the com partment, 38 pounds to the square inch, to escape, the break would have enlarged Instantly and the water would have drowned air hands. Calling upon one of the more experi enced workmen, Brady instructed him to telephone to the Jersey City terminal for more air pressure and to send him a car load of sawdust bags. H e had the Ital ians : thoroly cowed and when the bags arrived under the persuasive influence of the drawn revolver the Italians pushed the bags into the hole and then put a jaOk underneath to hold them in place. The break in the tunnel was caused by the boring shield hitting a rock forma tion, which jarred the roof and weakened it.' The apron which protrudes in front of the shield was bent and the boring was suspended until this morning', when the machinists completed repairs. SERVANT TURNS THIEF And Robs the George H.

EDITORS TALK POLITICS '"- - **- In Washington They Say Van Bant Will Be Renominated Despite ' Heatwole and Dunn. Lind's Retirement Is Predicted After His Present Term in Con gress Expires. '' From The Journal Bureau, Room 45 Poit Build tag-, Washington. Washington, May 27.There is a deal of state political- talk on the editorial ex cursion. Everybody is talking of next year's possibilities and making guesses a$ to what wiil happen. While not acknowl* edging that th$y have such a commission] it is said that W. E. Verity of Wadena and H. G. IJays of Sleepy Eye are looking after the interests of Joel P. Heatwole while on this trip. It is whiskered, further that Miss M. V. Gibbons, formerly of the state auditor's office, is doing a similar service for Bob Dunn, altho of cburse in a modest way. Certain it is that whether these persons are thus commisslonedvjr not, they are believed to be. The failure of either Dunn or Heatwole to join the party is regarded as more or less significant. Dunn got all ready,to start, and at the last moment backed' outprobably when he learned that Heatwole was not coming. He perhaps felt that he would be too, con spicuous for comfort coming alone. There are several well-known demo cratic editors in 'the party, and they seem to agree in the opinion that the republi can party next year will be compelled 4D renominate Van Sant should he desire it. They don't see what excuse"will be offered to the people if he is turned down, the merger being the only issue now before the state and having now assumed national proportions. The wish isn't father to. the thought with these gentlemen, for they would rather see a big fight over the nom ination, and somebody put up who has no merger record behind him. One of these democratic editors said to-day: "There'll be a lot of talk about candi dates for governor on the republican tick et. Dunn will try forth e nomination, and be defeated on account of his anti merger handicap Heatwole will try to stampede the party against Van Sant Col lins will talk about being a candidate, and will wind up, as usual, by holding on to his place on tho supreme benchh. After all these and perhaps others have had their say, Van Sant will come along and ask for a third term, and watersa thing Rus- sia greatly desires. Moreover, the Rus sians contend that the projected exten sion of their Orenburg and Tashkend line would provide a shorter Indian route than the Bagdad railway. HADMAMOf ESCAPE be very reluctantly, will be compelled to give it him. This is the logic of the sit uation as-We democrats see it." The Future of Llnd. Word from reliable democratic author ity is to the effect that John Llnd is not now planning to be a candidate for a sec ond term in congress. H e is understood to*have said to several of his personal ffiend& recently that he will retire after one term and settle down to the practice of law that he ran for congress again, as a democrat, just to show his friends and enemies that he w as not a "dead one." Democrats in the editorial party say that Lind's. record in the fifty-eighth congress will make it very difficult for him to run again, with any hope of success, unless the Hennepin republicans make a mistake in their nomination. J am told that Lind has been carefully thinking over what he ought to do in congress and advising with his friends and has finally concluded that he'must become an aggressive democrat, taking-the lead in all matters affecting that party. That will make him a prom inent figure in the house for the next two years, and prevent a great many Henne pin republicans from gg*m supporting him. .^^ '''' Soobar's Splketall Sensation.

Whitney ran to him, followed by half a dozen others, and Boobar would have been mobbed if he hadn't pleaded like a good fellow and explained that he was on his way to an entertainment in George town, where he w as to do a monologue act, and had just dropped in at the Riggs hastily to pay his respects.

Catarrh in its various forms is rapidly becoming a general curse. A n undoubted remedy has been discovered by Dr. Hart man: This remedy has been thoroughly tested during the past forty years.

Of Course, if a system of bait ing is put under way by Hennepin republir cans, Lind may become angry and.again come into the race. H e won't stand abuse and nagging.
