Depu.y Sheriffs Sworn In.
St. Louis, Oct. 17.—Sheriff' R u
biquet, of St. Clair couuty, Illinois,
swore in about thirty men as deputy
sheriffs this morning and distributed
them in different railroad yards east
of St. Louis. Seven United States
marshalls are also on guard, but they
are specially assigned to the Ohio &
Mississippi yards, that road being
under the protection of the United

saulted and all the other new men
of that yard driven off by the strikers,
but alter the deputy sheriffs made
tbeir appearance the strikers retired
and the new men resumed work.
All the roads are workiug small
forces ma le up mostly of employes
of other departments, but trains move
slowly. The railroad managers held
a meeting this morning, but it
is impossible to ascertain their action.
The strikers assert that the yardmen
in Indianapolis, Cincinnati and
Pittsburg will strike within a week
and the demand will be the same as
that made here, viz: Chicago stand

Press Comment on the Stock
New York, Oct. 17.—The Keening
Post says: The continuance and
magnitude of the decline in stocks
would entitle it to be called a panic,
except that it is devoid of the excite
ment attendant on a panic. There is
a general movement to sell, and all
efforts on tbe part of the largest capi
talists aud backers aud promoters of
the various securities to check a de
cline seem to have been abandoned.
The principal element which now
restrains a decline of prices is the
fear of bears. They are overselling
the market, and the fact that several
stocks are loaning at extraordinarily
high premiums for delivery on sabs
from day to day lends some plausi
bility to thisfear.lt iss iid in the case
of tbe Northern Pacific preferred,
which loaned at one per cent, per
day premium to-day,that there wiil be
a better supply of stock for loan after
the booki c'ose Saturday and this
encourages the selling of the stock.
The coal shares' are the principal
point of attack after the Northern
Pacific. The most selling is ot the
Lackawanna, while Jersey 'Central
aud Reading have been firm through
the day and show no declines for the
dav, aud at the close the Jersey Cen
tral suddenly advanced two per cent.

Weather Signals.
Washington, Oct. 16.—Alva II.
Doan, a clerk in the pension office,
has invented a method of displaying
w 7 eather signals in the country for
the benefit of farmers, which may be
adopted by the signal service bureau.
It provides for a system of signal
flays to be known as "farmers' signal
flags," which are to be displayed from
the sides of United States mail cars,
which pass rapidly and constantly
over the countrv on the great net
work of tracks. These fl igs will sig
nal information as follows: White,
meaning clear w r eather; blue, fair
weather; red, doubtful weather, and
black, stormy weather or high winds.
These signals can be ordered up from
Washington by teiegraph, and the
cost ot the entire system is said to be
in ignificant.

claims to have information that at a
meeting of the Iron and Steel Associ

agreed that with prices as at present,
it would be impossible to enforce the
demand for a higher scale, and that it

convention is a failure.

The Union
Station Buildings at
The Miner received a very pleas
ant call yesterday from Mr. Wm. P.
P. St. Clair, Supt. of the U. & N.
Rail way and Agent Scott, of the U.
& N. of this city. Mr. St. Clair had
just returned from Garrison, where
he has been recently engaged in lay
ing out side tracks, and left yesterday
afternoon on tbe south bound train.
Concerning the erection of transfer
freignt and passenger buildings at
Gairison, Mr. St. Clair stated the
matter was agreed upon and definite
ly settled by the representatives of
the Union Pacific and ot the North
ern Pacific at the recent conference
of railroad traffic agents at San Fran
cisco. The buildings are now in
course of completion at Omaha and
when finished will be shipped to
Garrison in sections aud put up, the
Northern Pacific paying one-half the
total cost aud will occupy them joint
with the U. & N.
On being questioned in regard to a
statement made in the Helena Her
ald that be had been "snubbed" by
Sunt. Buckley, of the Northern Pa
cific, in a conference held with that
gentleman aU Garrison, Mr. St. Clair
laughingly replied:
"The first time I knew auything
about this 'se ubbing' business was
when my attention was called to the
Herald's squib referred to. If there
was any 'snubbing' done the North
ern Pacific agent, got as much of it as
I did; but the fact is there is nothing
in it, and I was surprised to learn
such a statement had been made in
the public prints. The facts in the
case are these: After the agreement
had been arrived at in San Francisco
to build uuion station buildings
at Garrison, Mr. Doddridge, the
General Superintendent of the
U. & N. was telegraphed to meet Mr.
Ruckh y of the N. P. at Garrison and
i oca t e the site of the buildings. Mr.
Doddridge did not get the dispatch in
time to meet Mr. Buckley 7 , and wired
me to meet him. I immediately
went to Garrison. Mr. Buckley,
who was travelling in a special car
from the w est, soon after arrived.
He held that the buildings were to
be erected at a place two miles fur
ther west which the Northern Pacific
people had recently named "Garri
son." I stated that the terms of the
agreement between the two compa
nies expre-sly stated that the build
ings should he erected at Garr son,
formerly called Little Blackfoot. Mr.
Buckley was not informed as to this
and afterward telegraphed to head
quarters for instructions."
"Well, did he get them aud was he
at last satisfied ?" queried the Miner
"I suppose so," replied Mr. St.
Clair, "for the buildings will be put
up at Garrison, formerly known as
Little Blackfoo', right at the junction
of our road with the Northern Pa
"So that is the extent of the 'snub
bing business?' "

Virginia City Letter.
Sjiucifll Correspondence of the MiNek.
Virginia City, Oct. 15, 1883.
The town is quiet aud but little of
interest is occurring. The principal
topic of local couver* a'ion is tbe wed
ding of Stephen E. Bickford (known
as Dick Bickford) and Mrs. Sallie
Brown, a decided "brunette." It
happened last Wednesday week, but
as matrimonial alliances between the
Caucasian and negro races are not
frequent in this nick o' the woods,
the event has been more than the or
diaary nine day's wonder, and is
still a fruitful subject for the corners
to dilate upon. It is to be hoped that
the Faber »hovers of other towns
will not take advantage
of the occurrence and discard the so

Anaconda Let er.
Special Correspondence of the Minsk
Anaconda, Oct. 16tb, 1883.
After many days of inclement
weather, and idleness on the part of
the working force of the Anaconda
Company, the day opeDs w r ith sun
shine and the full army 7 of worke s.
Those dark objects near the top of the
two huge stacks of brick are live men
busy with the square and trowel
pushing the work to completion ere
another stroke of winter is upon
the tq. The advent ot winter has
cau ed a rustling of hardware mer
chants and a rattling of sheet iron,
stoves and stovepipes. Buildings are
going up and they are for permanen
cy, but are not impervious to thechii
ly winds and driving snows of Mon
tana nor too hot for comfort during a
blizzard. New enterprise reveals itse f
almost daily, and among the late ac
quisitions to Anaconda, is the open
ing of the banking house of Hoge,
Daly & Co., the Occidental Chop
House, and a bowling alley. Toe
Grand Central Hotel, property of
Mrs. Schultz, was dedicated Monday
evening, the 14th inst., to which
ceremony invitations were issued to
the elite only, aud the soiree was au
occasion of merriment to the chosen
guests. The subject of Statehood
agitates the democratic minds of
Anaconda and adds variety, and a
few notices in conspicuous places
caused the office of Justice E. J'.
Wattrbury to be crowded with
en thusis sties, Saturday eveuiug.
At 7:30 p. m. the meeting w-.s
called to order in the usual manne-,
Judge Waterbury in the chair and
Thos. Daly as secretary. The object
of this meeting was to elect delegates
to attend the convention at Deer
Lodge on the 20th inst. This dis
trict swollen by Anaconda, is entit
led to thirteen delegates. The fol
lowing ticket was prepared, aud, on
motion, elected by acclamation: E.
B. Waterbury, Thos. Daly, W. K.
Parish, J. Ross Clark, Butt Vincent,
James Quigley, Thos. Kirly, P.
Leavengood, N. Dickenson, Samuel
Tyler, D. M. Taylor, R. S. Campbell,
and E. M. Ratcliffe. They will it li
leave eu masse for Deer Lodge Friday
the 19th inst. Criminal matters are
quiet. The on ly case worthy of men
tion is the degradation of u poor local
scribe from Butte who borrowed a
watch, pawned the same, and "blew
in" the money. He now languishes
in limbo. Our prayers are for pro
tracted good weather to complete the
roofiug of the smeiter, for improved
mail facilities, for the railroad and
for the school house. Trusting that
our prayers will be answered, w'e
close with harmony prevailing in
our camp.
Renshaw Opera House
There was another large house last
evening at the Opera House and the
Tieket-of-Leave-Mau was rendered
in a manner that not only did great
credit to the company but held the
close attention of a refined and cul
tured audience. Louise Rial as May
Edwards was up to the standard in
every respect aud made an impression
by her fine impersonation of the
character that will not soon be for
gotten by those w 7 ho were fortunate
euough to witness the performance.
The play is too familiar to most of
our citizens to need a recital here.
The cast was a strong oue, and elici
ted frequent and hearty applause.
Miss Jennie McClellan in the char
acter of the amusing and anxious
grandma, Mrs. Willoughby, was very
good, while Miss Ethel Brandon
made a most captivating Sam Wil
lougliby. The "Tiger" was ably
sustained by Mr. Winters, being es-
pecially good in tbeinterview with the
banker. Mr. Dufiield, as Bob Bricrly,
the uufortunate victim of circum-
stances, won the sympathy of the
audience from the first. In the
fourth act he and Mr. Spencer, who
takes the part cf Hawkshaw, did re-
markably well and drew feitli ap-
plause that showed the eifert made
upon thoseassemnled. Mr. Stockweil
was inimitable as Melter M< s-s and
sustained his reputation as a fine
comedian. This evening Loudon
Assurance will be nresented with
Louise Rial as Lady Gay Spanker.
London Assurance is one of tlie oldest
and moit popular of the modern
English plays, aud this will he its
first presentation to a Butte audience.
It is full of amusing and laughable
situations, and, with Louise Rial as
the leading lady aud such au excel-
lent company for her support, it
should he welcomed by a crowded
and enthusiastic house.
