THEANACONDA STANDARD: MONDAY MORNING. NOVEMBER 2. 1851.
FACT,FANCY AND FUN TbiBgsOteened and Seme Ibiigs^Heard by ^Studard^ Reporters, HE APPLIED THE LEECHES InternalApplication for an Injured^Shouldar-The Minister Sold^Esks^About Street^Car Farea. Ectte,Nov. 1.^The other day a couple^of gtiiiifciiicn, one of them a city official,^were in a drug store while the clerk was^iking up several leeches that a doctor^li.nl ordered. At the sifcht of cotyloid* the flicinl began to smile and then broku^rut into a hearty laugh, the worm* evi^^dently bringing to mind lomt aruufing^incident. At last ho said: ^I never see^a leech or hear the word but what I think^of nn occurrence that banpened in a^small mining camp in Ariiona, long b -^fore I came to Butte. In one ol the mines^a brasny Irishman was employed as a^miner. Ono day he broke In*^shoulder and we packed him^to his hoarding bouse. The^nearest doctor was 3) miles away anil a^messenger was tent for hint. In the^meantime the boys had engaged a harum^scarum fellow known as iidiy Moore to^act as nurse for the injured miner. The^next morning the doctor arrived and^nfter fixing up Pat's shoulders he left di*^ree-tiotls with Moore what to do anil also^gave mm tome leeches, inn of which he^instructed him to apply '^^ Pat's shoulder^and then went away. Pat happened to^he asleep at the tinu- ami MM (lector told^Mnoro not to i.rouse him but to^wait Mattel he awoke- and then^pluce the leches as directed. As soon^as the doctor wus gono Moore^alipped out and took a number of drinks^anu when he returned to Pat's room he^was pretty full. Pat was awake ami^ntkrei him if the doctor had left any med^^icine for him. Moore produced the leeches^and said: 'Yes, lots ol it, and be told^mo to (live you two of these when yuu awoke. I'll bo dd if I know what they are,but you've got to take v in.' With^tins he coinpcllod poor Pat to swallow^one of the leeches. The c If ort almost^killed h in, but be managed to get the^thing down some way an J took a big^drink of water to take the taste out of ms^mr.iiin. Mo ri' then got another leech^mid indsied that Pat should take it alto.^Pnt l.i. ked at it awhile and then said, 'No,limy. I'll doi,it, but I'll not takeanother wan o' tbim things.' Anothercity clTleial is responsible for a^good story on a certain minister who has^^ flock in the city. The dominie has a^weakness for chickens and keeps quite a^number of tin in. His bens are par^^ticularly industrious and keep him so^well supplied with eggs that be is able to^sell some to his neighbors. L'or quile a^wh le one of the neighbors was a regular^customer, until recently when it was^i onced that some of the cgg uned from the parson appeared^to be not quite as fresh^as usual and the next nine the servant^wa* *ent for eggs she wus told that none^cuiilil be spare-el. A few days afterward^tl.o miitl bor's wife was at a house near^I y when ibe minister's little daughter^happened to drop in alto. The lady of^the house and her neighbor were talking^nbouteggs, when the ueighbor turut d to^the litiiu girl and remarked: ^You^haven't many eggs at your house now,^huv - you^ ' ,^Oil I yetb, mam,^ wa* the reply. ^We^have whole lots of'lhtm now since papa^got another box fult from the store. Ithas been a great boon to Montana^that it has been ablo to pass through one^fill without the ami' yunce of tue pest of^politics. While eastern states are in a^turmoil ovt r Tuesday's election, people^in Du te are at peace and republicans^und democrats drink together without^entering into political discussions. A^few bullies of wine abd a few hats have^I cen bet here over the result in New^York and Ohio, and that fa about tiie de^gree oi interest that has been excitod.^.^anguine democrats expect to carry both^states and sanguine republicans expect^to do the same. TheMcNamara block will not be com^pletod until next year. Judging from^ihe progress made, it bids fair to be ibe^finest block in Butte, surpassing even the^Owsley budding. Peopleliving ou the street car^lino to South Butte are trying to^have a five-cent limit established^on that line. At present the man who^ridea half way to South Butte has to sur^render his dime the same as a man who^ridea the entire distance. There ia no^flv^-cent limit aa is the case on the line^to Walkerviilc and the hast Park street^line. 'Ibe live-cent limit ou the latter^lino ia close to tne Parrot corner, but few^who take the car lor the city are aware of^this fact, and don't know that they could^^^ve a nickel by walking a block. The^Uv ^c nt limit on ihe cable line is in^1.^liter ville. ALOOKED-FOR CHANGZ. Kasirracapitalists Have Their Eyes oa^the tluue Street Railway. PfTTE,Nov. 1.^It is believed that the^deal on loot to dispose of the street rail^^way svet- ni will bo consummated some^tune this week. Por the past two weeks^n patty of eastern capitalists have been^in Butte looking ovir the property and^rarclully examining all details pertaining^to its condition. Ou hist Friuay an in^^ventory of everything was taken and it^ia bel'evcd that tbe gentlemen^from tbe East are favorably im^pressed with the property as uu^ii vestment. Therefore it is probable^ili.it tie- system will finally change hands^before long. In lh' ev, nt of a sale, the^Oct vices of Mauacer Woolston would un^e'oubtedly b ^ retained, tor he has been^the one man instrument ^1 in building up^i.nd petfecling the property and is thor^^oughly familiar witli iuu workings of il^Mr. WMeswM has been representing the^liostoti capitalist' on the bond which^they obtained on the road some time aero,^the idea being to ascertain whether the^read could be mad* a good paying hi^^ve .uncut. Tins, it is und^ rstood, is ascer^^tained tu be a fact under Mr. Woolston's^management. ,b.

Evttk.Nov. 1.^A fatal accident re^^curred about 2 o'clock this afternoon at^tbe Parrot mine ly whicb Dennis Sulli^^van loat lilt life. In company with hit^partner, Mike Murphy, he wa* drilling^a hole ia preparation for a blast on tbe^500 foot level, and about 800 feet from the^station. When the two men were ready^to use the powder, Sullivan started alter^a sufficient quantity of tbe exploa ve,^which was stored in a cut in the drift^about 130 fcei east of Ihe place where the^men were working. Sullivauhad been gone on hia errand^but a few moments wlm'i a terrific ex^^plosion occurred, which b.-ought conster^^nation to every one working in ti e mine.^Upon the surface there was a scene of the^wildest excitement, but tbe lives of tbteo^other men working in tbe same drift were^saved by one cool head. Aa soon aa ^^u-^perinteudeni Tibbey heard the noise he^immediate:)'rut eft the supply of air in^other parte of the mine and sent it all^down em to the 600 foot level. But lor^tli k prcmpt action ihere would have been^three dead men inaitad ol one. The ter^^rific concussion caused by tue t xplosion^of tba 25 pounds of giant powder which^the unfortunate man bad in bis baud de ^^molished the timbering of the drift, and^the dirt caving down blocked the usual^means of egress. Besidesthe man Murphy, who was^wa.ting for the powder, there were two^other miners, James Smith anil Frank^Wallace, who were working at the face^of the Urift about 200 leet further east^from the spot w here it was intended to^make the blast. '1 tie positions of these^men were for a fine extremely has.ird-^ous. The exDlcsion caused a suffocating^condition ol the uir. 'J lit y tried to cruwl^ovi r the obstiuction wb e h lay bctwee n^ihem at.el the nation, but ao much dart^and reck had laden that this was impos^^sible, and tbey were oblige el to retreat to^the lurther ei.el of the drift and climb by^means of ladders up tbe stopes to the too-^fool level. While Uiey were thus en^^deavoring to ercape, they would have^surely suffocated bad it not^been for tie liberal quantities^of fresh uir ^ Lien was pumped down to^tin ni. Xncse three surv.voi* gave an^account of what hud happened, and !-u-^periiiivtiacni Tibbey immediately de^^scended with a force of men to leain the^extent of the- explosion, and to extr.cate^Sullivan from the mars of rock which^bud fallen upon him. Ii was not until^after 5 o'clock that the liouy of the mail^was found. Although physicians acre on^band to lend their aid, their aervicea were^unnecessary, n^ the ui fortunate miner^suffered unim diale death. His head had^been blown complete ly iff ai.d his right^arm was toiiiiil several leet from the^body. Not a particle of clothing was lelt^except his bools, and the force of tile ex^^plosion was so great that the body was^teir bly mangled. The remains were^brought to tbe surface and taken charge^of by Undertaker Sucrman. Suilivatihud been in Uu to some eight^years duntig which time he had worked^continuously in tbe Anaconda until th ^^shutdown some mouths ago, when he^went to work in the P.nrot. He was born^in ireiuud and came lo this country when^quite young, and for 15 years hud woiLecl^in ce.pper mines ^u Michigan and Mon^^tana. Ho was 35 years ol age and un^^married. Oneparticularly sad side to the acci-^d 1.1 was ihe visit of his sister. She ar^^rived fioni Colorado this mornuuvand in^^tended to give her hroiber a surprise^when he should c^ me i ft shift this (.veil^^ing. Lut she never saw bun, for her plans^for this happy occasion were interrupted^by the news of his shocking death. FRIGHTENED BY BURGLARS. Mrs.Kcndrlcle Jusnps Throngli ihe tVtn-^di w uf Her llrflr. ^ m lic'TTE,N- v. 1.^Mrs. Kendr.ck, who^with her husbaud rooms at tbe tluller^house-, received a bad fright frc m a couple^of burglars last night. She was awak^^ened by a noise at the front door and^drew tbe cut tain of her window to the^side to see what was going on, and saw^two men who were trying to force the^door open. The sight of the men fright^^ened her so badly that she jumped^through the window and on to the side^^walk, and failed to remember anything^farther until about an hour alterwurd,^a lien she found herself in the room occu^^pied by the landlady. As soon as -h - pas^covered couiciousneaa, ahe relatid what^bad occurred, and when an investigation^waa made a man's hat was found pear^the ooor where alio had seen the men.^Mrs. Kcmlrick's husband was at Ana^^conda, and being alone* and a stranger^in the house, caused her tob come fright^^ened to a degree where she lost all con^^trol of herself. She was paiu'ul'y cut by^tbe broken glass of tbo window. 7He DHOP CUHI AN 1f you have tbe goods call ou us and^we will make it up to yoin- order. Per-^^eel fit guarinteeil.

Nov. 1^Miners still comeback^to Butte ill droves since the opening of^the mines of the Anaconda company, yet^it is a noticeable fact that there- are fewer^men seen loafing about the street corners^of Butte now than there were before the-^^uinea opened. The men are at work and^competent men are being put to work^about a^ fast aa they apply for work.^About ^75 men are noa- at work at the^Mountain Consolidated, and ore is being^shipped from that mine r.-gularly. At Ihe^High Ore ICO men are working to-day,^and probably 12j will be at work there m^the morning. The hoisting of ore from^the High Ore begau yesterday. At tbe^Green Mountain no work ia be^^ing dono as yet. About 90 to^3a men are at work . repairing^the shaft and it will probably be the-^latter part of the mouth before much ore^ia tuken Irom this mine. Pumping out^water began at the Modoc this afternoon^and aoou mining operation- will be^carried on in full foice there. Nothing is^Iveing done at the Wuke-l'p Jim or the^Hi Halo. At the Anacomu and Su Law^^rence mines, from 'SAI lolldu men are en^ployed and work ia progressing as usual. Whilethe progress made by the old re^^liable mines of the camp is of the utmost^encouragement to every reside-Ill of liutte,^yet in the opinion of careful observer*,^ibe present prosperity of liutte as a min^^ing center Is little to what it should lie^and what it will be in coming yeais.^Those who foretell the certain ending^of all things ^when the mines^play out,^ should take a trip mound tbe^camp and ace for themselves wherein^Unite bus the certainty r^f untold genera^^tions of prosperity. 'I hi mines which^are working are a very small minority^of the mines that exiat. In many cases^only a small amount of money would be^required to turn tho claims into paying^mines. Bach passing year is lending fav^^orable impetus to ti nt end. Where tbe^miner of 1881 paid (10 lo Sti) treatment^charge for his ton of civ, the minor of^IKil pays |U to $16 per ton. The miner^of 18)1 hail lo stand a loss of 30 to 3N per^cent. ^^( hi* vaiu-a through imperfect^milling. To-duy 10 per cent, la the usual^loss charged. Where in the past years^tlieie waa little or no choice of market^possible , to-day the markets of tbe world^are opjii to tlnrminer of Butte who has^ore to sell. Then, too, the poor m ner's^gre atest foe, water, has been grudually^driven deeper and deeper into tho e-arth.^'1 on years ago, around Walkervdle and^Centerville, L'5 leet from the surface a^pump was necessary to handle tho water^t'i unil in sinking; te-ilay any where in the^same nee hhorhood a shaft can lie sunk^175 to ^00 feet without encountering^enough water to cause any inconvenience^to tbo prospector. The deep mines of^ihe district arc gradually druiuing li e^surrounding country. Only the man who^has bucked water with u depleteel ex^^chequer can fully appreciate the adv.im^^age-, of this slate of affairs^to the average miner, who has^to sink a shaft to prove up^his claim. With tie- Alice and the Moul-^tou aa the huh, each spoke of an imagi^^nary wheel we u I point out promising^territoiy P.- lay lor paying mines and the^lira ot the wbee I would inclose a net^work of mineral paying veins unsur^^passed in the country. RichardBowden. the engineer in charge^at the Mountain Consolidated, when- Pat^McVe-rry was dropped in the cage y^ sicr-^dey morning, bus been discharged from^ilu'y. Howeleti held a first cla*s^engineer's license, which is un-^di rstootl to indicate compete nc -^to handle any engine. He had he-en m^charge only a few elays and during that^time aeemeel to be competent lor ti e^work. There seemed no doubt, howeve r,^that the engine was loo much for him^and he was relieve-d from duty. Adams^baa taken hie place. Dealersin mines and real estate report^that there is a greater demand noa- than^ever before for bonds and mining stocks.^Investors in large numbers are looking^for mineral land anil are ready to take tip^anything lhat shows fair prospects of b -^ermine paying property.
