Farewell Lecture.
Rev. L. B. Woolf oik closed his series of
lectures upon the Book of Genesis, at the
Court House last evening, to a crowded au
dience, at the same time closing his minister
ial labors in Montana, he having received a
call to return to the States. During the dis
course Mr. W. enjoined this people to culti
vate a more kindly feeling one toward the
other, and to reason over our religious, local,
and political differences instead of indulging
in passionate argument. Mr. Woolfolk is
an able minister, and takes with him the
well wishes of a large circle of friends.
Refused to Bond.
Mr. Geo. Plaistead, who went to Califor
nia last winter, succeeded in perfecting ar
rangements to bond the Cable mine on the
following terms: A Washoe Company to
have the mine for fifteen months, to put up
hoisting works and sink a shaft to the depth
of 300 feet, with permission to work the
mine during and buy it at certain figures at
the expiration of that time or forfeit the im
provements, machinery, etc. This arrange
ment would have required an outlay of from
$00,000 to $100,000, but Mr. Cameron, who
represents one-third of the mine, objected,
and negotiations have been suspended for the
present. We hope the objections may be
withdrawn and the work proceed.— Inde,
Another '»Biff Injun" (»one.
We learn that during a drunken row among
the Piegan Indians on Upper Sun river last
w r eck, Little Wolf, second chief of the tribe,
was killed. Little Wolf is said to have been
the most friehdly of all hîs tribe toward the
whites. We are not posted upon his early
life, and shall not attempt to write him up.
Not Eligible*
Judge Lawrence was not present when he
received the nomination for Mayor, else, he
says, he would have declined, he not being
eligible under the Organic Act. This pro
vides that no Legislator is eligible for two
years thereafter to any aftice created by the
Legislature of which he was a member.
Struivbcrry Festival.
We learn it is the intention of the lady
friends of the Helena Library to give

worthy institution on the Fourth of July, if
the sun ever comes out warm enough to give
the strawberries a show.

season. These mines are in the northwest
corner of Missoula county, and were w orked
to some extent four or five years ago.
—Con. Kohrs, w T e understand, declines to
accept the position as one of the directors of
the Peniteiftiâry. As some Deer Lodger is

An alarm of fire was given on Saturday
evening by the burning out of a chimney in

Another Clean-i«p from Keating; Ore,
Johnny Keating came in to-day from Ra-
dersburg with 332 ounces of gold retort, be-
ing the result of eleven days run of their
mill upon ore from the Keating mine. The
greenback value of this clean-up amounts to
over $7,000. Verily this is a most valuable
mine, as this is but a sample of its yield in
the precious metal every tw r o w'eeks.

Attempted Murder in Corinne*
The Reporter of the 16lh inst. chronicles
the attempted murder of Mr. A. Greenewald,
one of the proprietors of the Metropolitan
Hotel, with whom most Montanians are
quainted. The facts, substantially as they
ccurred, are these: One Untzbaum, an old
man who has been employed by Malsh
Greenewald to herd their stock, came in
town yesterday morning, and while here
had some words with his employers, ending
in an angry altercation and a personal
rencontre, in which Uutzbaum was chastised
by Mr. Greenewald. There the matter ended,
when it was supposed that Untzbaum went
away to his business as herder, for
was seen no more until six in the afternoon,
the time of the shoting. He was then
the yard adjoining the hotel premises, where
lid stood, evidently in wait, for at the hour
named Mr. Greenewald happened out in the
rear of his house, and, without hearing threat
or alarm, was then shot by his ambushed as
sailant from behind a fence. The weapon
used Ivy Untzbaum was an old musket, which
at the time was charged with heavy buckshot,
one of which entered Mr. Greenewald's
right cheek, penetrating to the opposite side
of the face and farther back. After the shoot
ing Mr. G. walked into the hôtel, and imme
diate]}' Drs. Graham and McKinney were
summoned to his side. These gentlemen, we
are happy to state, are confident of Mr.
Greenewald's early recovery, although his es
cape from instant death was the reverse
his would-be murderer's intention. Had that
shot struck half an inch higher, it would cer
tainly have proved fatal. Mr. G. rested well
a portion of the night, but is suffering much
pain from his injury to-day. Untzbaum was
arrested immediately after firing the musket,
by Captain Ilarnish, who turned him over
the city marshal, and he is now in jail
await such disposition as the laws maj' - sug
gest for that class of criminals.
A genuine runaway took place iu Helena
this morning. The four-horse team attached
to the Diamond City coach took fright while
the express matter was being loaded at Auer
bach's early this morning, and started down
Main street at a rapid rate. The outfit turned
the corner of Main and Edward streets suc
cessfully, but run into Sherwood's store on
Clore street, bringing one of the wheel horses
to grass and bending the front axel to an
angle of 45 degrees. The horse was dragged
some distance, when the leaders succeeded in
kicking themselves clear, and went their.way
rejoicing into the valley. The damage
wrought is lighter than was expected from
the speed displayed by the bronchos, the
down horse unexpectedly coming out alive
and with no broken bones, although badly
cut up.
We learn that the team was started in mo
tion by the teamster of a job wagon, who
started up his own team in close proximity
with a "git up" and crack cf his whip, hit
ting one of the wheelers. Any stage team
that wouldn't start off under such circum
stances are not worth having.
Etait Northern Railway*
Grading on this road is being pushed ahead.
The bridge over Bear river from the Corinne
extenson was completed last week, and there
are tics on hand for the extension and plenty
will be on hand in time to tie the road
from Logau to Franklin, there being piles
of them stacked up in the neighborhood of
Smithfield. Add to this the following, from
the Council Bluffs Nonpareil , showing that
the iron is coming along, and our Montana
neighbors can see that the Utah Northern
Company mean business: "During the past
ten days the Chicago and Northwestern has
transported over their road tw'enty-five car
loads of railroad iron for the Utah Northern
railroad, and they are new receiving about
three cars of the same daily ."—Utah Ex.
Indian Raid Upon Fori Lincoln.
The following, which comes to us through

that the N. P. surveying expedition will have

the Indians :
Bismarck, May 9. —Tw'o days ago the In

The Government troops lost four horses.
The Indians came within six hundred yards
the Fort and fired into it. This forenoon
they were observed in considerable numbers
the heights on the opposite side of the
Missouri river near the Fort. The report is
that they made an attack and were repulsed
with the loss of four men killed. All quiet

The Railroad Bill*
The railroad bill which recently passed the
Legislature seems to be the all-absorbing topic
at the present time. Last winter when the
qiiestion of a railroad subsidy was raised, we
arrayed ourselves in opposition to a Territo
rial subsidy, and lent what aid we could to
defeat that measure. At that time wc were
accused by the Herald and Gazette as being
opposed to a North and South railroad. We
distinctly stated at that time, that we were
not opposed to such a road, but were opposed
to the Territory building it ; but if the East
Side counties desired to assist in building it,
we had no objection. We are still of that
opinion. We have not changed one iota.
The railroad bill which recenty passed simply
gives the counties of the East Side the right
to vote on the question, whether they will as
sist in building the road or not. There is, as
we look at it, no compulsion iu the matter.
If a majority of the voters are in favor of it
the aid will be extended ; but if a majority
vote against it, there the matter ends.
The North icest sails in, and goes for the
Deer Lodge and Missoula delegations in a
warlike manner.
This is all wrong, for we believe the dele-
gations carried out the wishes of a majority
of their constituents. We will not undertake
to speak for Deer Lodge, but we will for
Missoula ; and we will say that the action of
the Missoula delegation, so far as their yotes
on the railroad bill are concerned, will be en-
dorsed by nine-tenths of the voters of Mis-
soula county. We believe we know person-
ally nearly all of the voters of this county,
and since the passage of the bill, we have
seen many of them, and have made it our
business to inquire and find out their feelings
in the matter, and we must say that we have
yet to find a solitary man wlio opposes the
bill ; and we will say to Capt. Mills that in
his tirade against the railroad bill and those
who voted for it, lie is in no sense of the
word representing the views or wishes of the
people of Missoula county. And "while w'e
have no objection to his making war on be-
half of Deer Lodge county against the bill,
we shall surely protest against him constitut-
ing himself the champion of Missoula and
misrepresenting the view's of our citizens.
W e stood by Capt. Mills in his war against a
call of the Legislature, and a Territorial sub-
sidy, and lent what aid we could, but when
the Territorial subsidy fell to the ground, our
work was finished. We made no fig lit against
counties extending aid, and have none to
make. We have no desire to meddle with
the local affairs of other counties, neither do
W'e desire them to meddle w'ith ours. We
shall at all times endeavor to advance the in-
terest of our county, and correctly represent
the views of our citizens, and believe w'e have
done so in this matter.— Missovlian.
