DEARTO A WOMAN'S HEART PeculiarAttraction Auction* Havi^For tha Fair Sax-Propoaad^Pleasure Gardens-Hack^Raarulatlona. Butte,Oct. SB.^There it nothing so^di ar to tb* average feminine heart as an^auction, and if the auction be of *dre^^goods or women'* wearing apparel it it^sure 10 prove an Irresistible attraction to^a large portion of the female population.^There seems to be tome kind of a hyp^^notic influence in the tale of a bankrupt^mock of goods to which these bargain^hunters are strangely susceptible Thisphase in the feminine character^has keen Tividly illustrated during the^last two weeks while the Iliyci sale hai^been in progress. The store has been^crowded euch afternoon since the auc^^tion began with women of all classes and^conditions, from all walks of life and^lrom all the strata of society. As has^been stated that all men arc equal on the^turf and under it, it oan bt admitted with^just as much truth that that condition of^itiings is true with the fair tex in the auc^^tion room. There is no Pharisaic il draw-^ins aside of skirts to avoid touching some^iliy-eluil and tloulitf ul-Iookina person^mantling near by. The spell which the^women all appear to be under is an in-^conaclatnc ilvmeltstter of nil social in^^stincts. And the crowd jostle mid jam^with the greatest freedom. 1 'lie^counters ranging along either side^of tlie store is a lsvorite roosting place^for the ladies; and on each day of tbesalo^they may be seen perched contentedly^along in two rows, soothed by the dis^^cordant voice of the auctioneer or lulled^into happy satisfaction by a piece of gum^between their jaws. Itis understood from pretty good au^^thority that a syndicate of moneyed men^will soon be formed for the purpose of^laying out and constructing pleasure^liroynds and an athletic park somewhere^within the city limits and probably just^beyond Missoula gulch. The city is con^^spicuously lacking in a place of this^character and should the idea crystalit)^into u permanent movement the doubts^as to its success are beyond perailvcn-^ture. At present the only outing places^are Columbia gardens and the racetrack;^both ore too great a distnnce from the^city and the uncomfortable journey^thither makes it preferable to many to^remain at home on days when these^places have attractions. The proposed^gardens would be at a convenient dis^^tance irom the center of the city, and on^every Sunday as well as on holidays^would be opened for the public. It is the^intention of the promoters of the scheme^to make the pluce^ as attractive in the^way of tr^es and grass as the sterility of^this section of the country would permit.^A prominent real estate agent who is in^^terested in the idea stated that work^would be begun this winter and by next^summer the attractive easis of m boreal^beauty would be ready for the enjoyment^of the people of Butte. A dancing pavil^^ion would be one of the features that^would make it a pleasant retort in the^eyes of the devotees of terpsicbore; while^suitable grounds for various out door^comoii would also add to its attractive-^i.vxi as a pleasure park. Sometime ago the city council passed^an ordinance regulating hack and 'bus^fare*, but what the provisions of the ord^^inance are few persons outside of the^men who made tbe ordinance know. In^oilier cities ordinances of that kind are^usually printed on cards and posted at^depots, botels and other public places for^thu guidance of tbe people for whose^bene lit they have been pasted. The sug^^gestion has been made by a number of^persons that it might be well if the same^thing were done here. don't. This same ^ year-old was asked^by a visiter a few d tya ago: ^When was^your last birthday T^ and was answered^very correctly: ^About six years ago.^ It^ia also taid of ber that she once com^^plained to ber mother that if there was^anything she bated itwaa something that^site did not like very well. HE lii DISSATISFIED. Ik* GUI Thinks attfsre* Harrlty Didn't^Act Bight.^Bvttb, OH. 25 ^ Mike Gill, who was^defeated to-day in tbe shooting match by^James Couley, feels that he has cause for^complaint over tbe result of the match^and thinks that the treatment he received^was not as fair as it might have been,^and to this fact be attributes his defeat.^He says as far as Mr. Con ley is concerned^he us* no fault to find, but not so with^Harrity, tbe referee. Mr. Gill says that^alter winning the toss for first shot lie^waived the right and allowed Mr. t'. n ey^to shoot first. He then advauceu to^tbe score bimaelf and jutt as he^prepared to raise his gun he^was stopped by tne referee who de-^mnuded that be unload his gun and allow^him to examine tbe charge of shot he^used. This demand coining after one^man bad already *hot Mr. Gill considered^unfair and caused him 10 b come ex^^cited. He says ne tb ought that tbe match^was understood to bo between gentlemen^an I the referee's action made him angry,^nd consequently be was unable to shoot^his best. As long as the referee desired^to cballengo either of the shooters, .Mr.^Gill says, he should havo done so before^tbe matcu commenced and not wait until^ono of tin m had already killed a bird. In^conclusion Mr. Gill says that he is rcai.y^to enter to a match w ith any mail l*j^Helena, some rule* that governed to-tlay'*^match, lor any amount up to fl,CO0, the^match to take place one month troin to^^day.

GUTDOWN LIKE WEEDS WiMan Eye Witness Siys About the^Battle of Wounded Kiee. 'TWASAN AWFUL SLAUGHTER Man.Women and Children Shot^Down Without Mercy-No^Fear of an Indian^Outbreak. Acertain well-known married man liv^lug on the west side of the city is willing^to pa* a handsome reward to the person^who can bring about a reconciliation be^^tween himself and hit better half before^the latter applies for a divorce. The^man referred to is the victim of^t.n innocent but annoying circumstance.^A few days ago while dressing to go to^Ins place ot business for the day, be^iound himself in need of a pin. His wife^had stepped across the street to u neigh^bor's house and he vainly searched all^over for ono of the useful little articles.^At last be ran downstairs into the kitchen^to ask the servant to help hint out. The^girl was elbow deep in the bread trough^kneading dough, and wnen he made^known his wants she innocently straight^tiled up and told him to help himself, at^the same time nodding her chin in tbe^direction of ber dress where women usu^ally stick pins, not wishing to soil her^clothes with the dough and flour that^covered her hands. The gentlentan is^naturally of a bashful disposition, which^cauted him to become badly confuted,^and it took him some time before be^could find a pin. While be was still look^lrg for the harmless little affair his wifo^suddenly dropped into the kitchen with^flashing eyes. He tried to explain, but it^was of no avail and after discharging the^girl right then and there the wife swept^out of the room sobbing and declaring^that she would get a divorce as soon as^possible. Several costly silk dress pat^^terns and other equally tempting bribes^hare failed to smooth over the troubled^waters and the man is almost wild with^fright. UAGUIRESOPERA HOUSE ^BUTTE. MONT.

JfcttUls SO.V- Then lbs Walter Was Urscged Away* butthe Girl Wort a Wclillog liinir*^New Yolk Correspondence Cinciuasti Enquirer. Strangescenes from tho always inter^^esting drama of life are being constantly^enacted in tbe restaurants, theaters and^barrooms of New York, where idle hu^^manity congregates, and some of the^strangest are to be found in a brilliant^rendixvousof the epicure and lounger.^Latt Saturday night a youug man and^woman tat at a table against ono of the^windows in this place. They were dining^heavily, with numerous wines and^a surfeit of ornamental dishes.^Their manners indicated plainly^that they were off on a good^time. 'J he girl, a strikingly beautiful^creature with fairly-luminous flesh and^jet-black hair, was showily dressed and^was apparently of that cli.ss of women^that takes life at a killing pnee, while the^young man, who was a higher-bred ani^^mal than she, was in the mood for the^moment to set a gait that would please^ber. The man serving the in was a short,^thick-necked Frenchman, with glittering^black eyes and a deud-pale face, lie^worked nervously over the dishes, and^seemed anxious to hear whatever^was said hy the young people.^This latter effort of his be^^came noticeable to the youth, who turned^at last und told the w aiter to go about bis^business and not linger over the table so^much. Tho waiter started to make some^reply, but stopped short with his eyes^fixed upon tbe face of the girl, who^h i im d looking him through and^through. When ho went about liis work^again he muttered to himself, and once^he fairly hissid something out of the cor^^ner of his mouth at the girl. Theyoung man was very angry at this,^anil summoning the head waiter, ask oil^tor anotl.'-r mail to servo his dinner. The^waiter, who seemed erased with excite^^ment, und was trembling violently,^turned to Ids eliief and cried, ^M'sieu, Jo suis'ior.^ ^Silence! 'exclaimed the headwaiter, and then, turning to the^young man, shouted, ^Monsieur, I will^send another man to you.^ As he^spoke he tcok the trembling waiter^by the arm end led him away; talking^rapidly in French as lie d.d so. The^youug man looked hard iuto the face of^the girl with him and said, ^He wat ab ^ut^to say that he was your^what^^ ^Oil,^nothing,^ she replied, lifting her wine to^her lips. ^He must be craitr. I .lid not^know he was working ber* before^that^is, 1 mean to say, I never saw me man^before. Come, drink once more to what^you are pleased to call my pansy eyes. Theyoung man raised his glass, and,^as the two sipped their wine together, he^noticed for the first t in I that sbe wore a^wedding riug. He sinned to himself, and^asked no more questions. What did he^care^ She was beautiful, aud he was in^a mood to be amused. Birre, Oct. 25 ^Among the nam is n^*/^istered at the McDcnnoit yesterday w.*^^that of J. C. McDonald, a well-known^newspaper correspondent from Xew Vork,^and who represented several papers at^Pine Kidge last winter during the Sioux^uprising, lie was reading telegraphic ac^^counts of the annual r^ p rt ^f General^Miles, and the report of the so-called Har^^ris c^ mmission when a reporter lor IsM^I-TaMiakd accosted liim. Mr. McDonald^has uot a vory exalted opinion of tbe Har^^ris commission, which he designated as a^farce only second to the entire Indian^policy of the government. ^After peace^nad been restored at Pine Ridge,^ said^the correspondent, ^the government an* Glintedthis cemniittion to visit all the^akota Indians and learn their griev^^ance's. Tho commission consisted of men^who knew about as much about the In^^dian question as the average mall sent^out upon such a mission by the govern^^ment. I see t^y this report that after being^out over half a year the commission finds^the Indians still unsatisfied, but without^making any recommendations or sugges^^tions, and the war department knows no^more than it did before. The commis^^sioners had a pleasant summer's trip,^paid little or no attention to the matter^they were supposed to investigate, and^they have only to report their inaiiks to^the men who secured their ai pointment^to tli.it government snap. Hut it is the^course pursued by the government in all^its treaties with the Indians. Incompet^^ent meii are sent upon such missions and^their findings are never supposed to be^lived up to. General Miles' report at^^tributes the outbreak last winter lo the^failure of crops and the failure of tbe^government to properly periorm its obli^^gations toward.- the Indians. He has dis^^covered that the flro of discord still re^^mains, and communications of a hostile^nature are going am between the different^camps. Miles still looks for a general^uprising among the Indians, but from^wuat I know by years of study of the III^^itiuii character it will be only lor revenge,^and for no oilier reason if another upris^^ing ever occurs among tho S ous. Tbe^trouble at Pine Ridge was started by tbe^government, aud the battle on Wounded^Knee was nothing more than a^muss aero by tho government. 1 was^in the midst of the trouble^from almost the beginning to th^ end^The talk of a falure of crops among the^Indians is bosh, for it would not diminish^their receipts. Tho Indians at Pine Ridge^were hungry and complained to the^agent. The agent was one of the govern^^ment pap suckers and did not understand^the Indians under him. Ho became fright^^ened and* the military was called upon to^suppress a threatened uprising. The^I soldiers came and MM the uiestiah crate^I at an excuse. The Indians, who had no^I more idea of fighting than babes, became^in their turn frightened and ran away^from the agency. Some one had told^them they were ail to be killed, and judg^^ing from their past treatment they be^^lieved it and then they put themselves on^the defensive. They s ere driven to the^Bid Lands by General Brooks, but by^promises they were brought back as far^as Wounded Knee, wtiero they were nut^by Colonel I'orsyibe. Their fear* re^^turned and when their arm* were de^^manded it was, to their minds, only a^proof of the intent of the soldiers to^murder them in cold blood. The official^^eport of a signal aud immediate^volley from the Indians is a false^statement of facts. A tolelier attempted^to take a gun from an Indian by to ree^and wat shot in self defense. Tho otln r^Indians immediately grabbeI their arms^and started to run away from the soldiers^when flro was opened upon them. Then^followed one of the most shameful^slaughters of human beings that history^has ever recorded. My own investiga^tion of wounds on tbe dead Indians after^thu maisacie. showed that untc-tcuths of^them ware shot in the back. They w^followed for miles and shot down like^dogs. Wholefamilies in wagons trying^to get away with their lives were sent^iuto eternity by shots from Hotchkn-s^guns. Others who had taken refugo la^hollow* and caves were cut down like^weids without offering the slightest re^sistauce. Tho hardest fight made by the^Indians was by the squaws in their mail^efforts to protect their little ones, who^were with ttiein. Not a half dcien of that^baud of Indians escaped. The number^of dead wcro never known, as the fact^were aoppressed by the officer*. It it^ridiculous to say that the Indians precip^^itated that fight when less^than half a tl^ i-n soldier* wen-^killed, while the dead Indians numbered^several hundred. The arrival of General^Miles succeeded in partly quieting the In^^dians, but they did not lay down their^arms until a large nurabi r of soldier-^were taken off tbe reservation, and then^the r fears began to subside. No; they^will never break out again unless for re^^venge, aud I want to tell you that tiie In^^dians are more afraid of being killed^than General Mile* is of another upris^^ing. The killing of Sitting Hull was an^^other shame I ul and delib.-rate murder,^but everything went during that terrible^'Indian war.' If tbe Indian was given^credit for half the intelligence he rcii|!y^possesses, and was treated half a* well^as ho deserve*, tbe Indian problem would^solvo itself. SENTTO UNCLc SAM.
