He will be "on the carpet" during his ab sence, and it is reported that he also has mat rimonial designs and is very liable to take unto himself a wife. Whether this report be well founded or not, we are not prepared to say, but have reasons for giving it credenoe. Arth urwill be absent about three months. Election of Bn nit Directors.

To the Editor of the Herald. Taking a deep interest in all that pertains to Montana, either socially, morally or ma terially, I have been "looking around," and have marked with pride and pleasure the rapid growth of your young city, and natur ally asked, "Is the mental and moral growth commensurate with this wonderful develop ment of energy and the rapid stride to metro politan power ?" I have been gratified to find that the citizens of Helena are up with this age of progress. They have a school house of collegiate properties and dimensions. They have erected churches which would put to shame older and more advanced civilization. But are their pulpits filled with talent com mensurate with the outlay of money so lav ishly bestowed ? This is a question I am not fully prepared to answer. That the citizens of Helena have been liberal—yea, almost prodigal—of their resources in erecting churches none can gainsay. But have the churches represented by those buildings been as liberal in meeting the outlay as the citi zens of Helena in talent ? Surely such mag nificence should demand that every church pulpit should be filled by master workmen. I hear that it is so and I trust that I may find it so. At present I have only had opportunity to visit one of your houses of worship, and of this one alone I will speak. On last Sun day I visited Grand street Methodist Church, Rev. W. Harris, pastor. This church is not very inviting in appearance externally. Paint and blinds to the windows would greatly im prove it. But internally it is really one of the best appointed and arranged churches I have seen in Montana, or, indeed, almost anywhere. It is large, commodious, airy, well warmed, well ventilated, with easy, com fortable seats, presenting plain, solid archi tecture—nothing of gew-gaw to attract the mind. But of this I did not design to speak so directly as of the sermon and services. Of the sermon I will not attempt to give a re view. It was clear, logical and profound, exhibiting deep thought and thorough pre paration, and was delivered in forcible, lucid argument, with the zeal of an apostle. Surely Helena is peculiarly blessed in her pulpit ministrations, if all her ministers are equal to this one. Rev. Mr. Harris is, I should judge, full fifty years of age, but well-kept, sound, clear judgment, with a strong vigorous mind, well developed mentally, morally and phys ically. I have never listened to the great truths of the Gospel more logically put or en forced with more zeal. He is in earnest, and the great mission is delivered in all the ma jestic power of truth. With him it is no idle play of words, nor is it an effort at oratorical display, but the earnest message of his Mister, delivered to thinking moral agents. All the services were of a character to call into play and develop the highest order of devotion. His accomplished daughter presided with grace and dignity at the organ, and conduc ted with consummate skill and ability that most delightful part of religious worship— the singing. Her voice is finely cultivated, of great power and pathos, sweeping through the cadences of song with great beauty, lift ing the soul to the Great Author of Song. I shall avail myself of the pleasure of visiting some or all of your churches in the future, and may give you further impressions of a „ WANDERER. Helena, January 12, 1876. From the Daily Herald of January 14. Personal. —Henry Bier, of Upper Indian Creek, is in the city. —Dr. George Lambert, who lately arrived from St. Paul, Minnesota, has gone to Dia mond City to permanently locate, and will take the place of Dr. Parberry, who has abandoned his practice in that town. —Paymaster Blaine left for Camp Baker this morning to pay off the troops at that post. He was accompanied by W. H. Baker, of the Surveyor General's office. — W. F. Haase left for Diamond this morn ing, having purchased necessary supplies for his mercantile establishment. Mr. Haase is the new postmaster at Diamond City, and we are pleased to learn that his administration of affairs thus far gives general satisfaction. — G. H. Majors and D. C. Pratt, of Camp Baker, arrived last night and leave on the coach to-morrow morning for the States, to visit the "old folks at home." They will re turn early in the coming spring. —Charles T. Rader, of Camp Baker, ar- rived last night and will rusticate a few days in the Capital. He is a member of the Third House. --- m -4 44S4 ♦* » » ------ Died Last Ni^tat. The Indian who was shot through the knee about two months ago while in the act of running off stock from the Blackfoot reser- vation died at the Sisters' Hospital last night. He had good medical aid and the best of care during his confinement in the hospital, but he steadfastly refused to have his leg ampu- tated. It is probable, however, that he would have died under the operation, even had he consented to the amputation of his limb. At least this is the opinion of the attending physician. The remains were buried this morning. BREVITIES. —The report that Spiegel,formerly a miner in Confederate gulch, had frozen to death in the Black Hills is contradicted. — S. F. Molitor, the assayer, has been lying seriously ill for several weeks past at his residence on Fifth avenue, but is now, we learn, somewhat better. His condition at one time was critical. —Subscriptions to the Daily Herald, ac companied by the requisite currency, from Captain Sanno, Fort Shaw, und Wm. Johns, of the Upper Toll-gate, Benton road, were received last night. Also $6 from G. H.' Majors, of Camp Baker, for Weekly Her ald —Dr. A. M. Smith writes us from Boze man and says: "Messrs. Fisk Bros* Enclosed please find P. O. order for $12 in payment of subscription to Herald. I cannot do with out it. In the Herald I find more fresh and reliable news than in any other newspaper in the Territory. Hope it will continue the same and not falter." —The Rocky Mountain Husbandman pays the following deserved compliment to one of the rising young men of Helena: "From facts made known to our readers in this is sue, we are led to conclude that the organi zation of Good Templars, of Montana, put the right man in the right place when they elected Massena Bullard G. W. C. T. He has organized two new Lodges within the past three weeks, and does not propose to stop at that. His petitions to the Legislature, asking the enactment of a law prohibiting the sale of intoxicating liquors on the Sab bath and election days, have been extensively circulated and signed." From the Daily Herald of January 15. Personal* —Mr. E. F. Sawyer, one of the Commis sioners of Jefferson county, gave us a call to-day. —Blaine Walker, accompanied by Lieut. Kendrick, left for Forts Shaw and Benton, this morning to pay off the troops at those posts. —Vice President Stark and Chief Engineer W. Milnor Roberts, of the Northern Pacific Railroad, arrived on the coach last night. J. F. Stark is also one of the party. Other rail road magnates are expected in a few days. —Mr. Weinstein, of the firm of Weinstein & Block, returned from the valley last Thurs day, where he has been in attendance upon his wounded partner, M. Block, on his way to Philippsburg. He states that Mr. Block will be around in a few days and able to at tend to his business.— Mmoulian y 12 th inst. The Utah Northern. We learn that trains on the Utah Northern Railroad going east from Franklin, go through now to Ogden without stopping at Corinne, and that passengers from San Fran cisco to Montana are obliged to go to Ogden in order to take the train for Franklin. The passengers from Corinne are compelled to submit to the same inconvenience and addi tional expense. We have not learned what motives prompted the managers of the Utah Northern to adopt this very singular change in their schedule. It appears to us like a nuisance that ought to be abated without de lay. __ Died ntttae Hospital. Robert C. Miller, of the firm of Miller & Addoms, Insurance Agent, died at the Sisters' Hospital this morning. Deceased had been in poor health for several years past, and about two months ago the malady which had so long afflicted him became so serious that he was obliged to abandon his business. He was taken to the Sisters' Hospital, where he received good care and the best o ; medical aid, but all proved unavailing. Deceased came to Montana at an early period and has since resided here. The funeral will lake place to-morrow at 2 p. m. PROPOSITION FOR A RAILROAD. The Ftab .Northern. In addition to the telegram received yester day by Hon. Samuel Langhorne, Speaker of the House, the President of the Council also received the following dispatch : New Yoek, January 0, 187G. President of the Council : Do you think it would be worth while for me to come to Helena with a proposition to build the Northern Utah Railroad for a sub sidy of one and a half millions within two years. JOSEPH RICHARDSON, No, 23, Nassau street. In reply to which the following answer was sent: Helena, January 14, 1870. Joseph Richardson, New York: The people are anxious for a railroad. The agents of the Northern Pacific are here. Come on and make proposition. ASA A. BROWN, President Council. THE JEFFERSON ROBBERY. Recovery of Part of the Stolen Money. The robbery of the Jefferson county Treas ury took place on New Year's Eve. A full account of the theft, the amount carried off, and other attending particulars appeared in the Herald at the time. The robbery of county funds amounted to $6,915, currency, the most of which was in bills of the denomi nation of $20 and upwards. Of this sum $110, in a stray package, was dropped by the robber near the Treasùrer's office, and recov ered the following day. Search was contin ued, and on the Tuesday following the rob bery $4,990 more of the stolen money was found. This was "panned out" from a pros pect hole near Radersburgh. It had been packed in a stone ink jar, the jar sealed up with putty, and then tossed into the excava tion. The finder (Mr. Fred Temple) saw the bottle, and thinking that perhaps there might be a clue to the mystery, tossed boulders down upon and broke it. Sure enough his throw turned out to be a big one. There were "thousands in it," as the sequel proved. Only $1,815 of the stolen money of the coun ty now remains missing. This, together with some $2,000 of private funds claimed by Mr. Linebarger, and stolen at the same time, it is hoped will yet be recovered. Those Horses for Engine Co. No. 1. Reports having been circulated in the city to the effect that C. M. Travis, who purchas ed the team for Engine Co. No. 1, had made $50 by the transaction, Mr. Travis in refuta tion of these statements, requests us to pub lish the following affidavit, which he handed us this morning: Territory of Montana, > ^ County of Lewis and Clarke, > G. J. Hinton, having been first duly sworn, says that he is a resident of the city and couDty of Deer Lodge, Montana; that he was the owner of a span of bay horses sold recently to the Fire Department of Helena ; that he received in payment therefor the sum of $350, which money was paid to him by Richard Nicholson, Foreman of Engine Co. No. 1 ; that no part of that sum, either be fore or after the sale, was paid to C. M, Tra vis for any services of any kind rendered by him in the transaction ; neither did said Travis receive from me, nor from any other person so far as I know, any compensation in any way or form for his services in the transaction. (Signed) G. J. HINTON. Subscribed and sworn to before me this 15th day of January, 1376. CORNELIUS HEDGES, Probate Judge. --- m -4 »*- -w—-- THE JEFFERSON COUNTY TREASURY ROBBERY. An Innocent Party, Unjustly Accused Set Right. To the Editor of the Herald. We, the Commissioners of Jefferson Coun ty, Montana Territory, desire to state to the public through the press that the rumor and suspicion directed against William Hall, of Radersburg, whereby an attempt was made to charge him with the crime of robbing the county safe on the 31st ult., was unauthorized on our part. We further state that Mr. Hall has offered to prove his whereabouts on that evening, if we so desired, and we are satisfied he can so do fully and satisfactorily by wit nesses of unimpeachable character. The sending out of one James L. Wood to follow Mr. Hall to Clancy was certainly by us un authorized. Mr. Hall has demanded of us an investigation to remove the cloud from his character, but we have nothing against him upon which to base a charge. Mr. Hall's character has hitherto been above reproach. We have ever found him prompt and active in business and upright and honorable in his dealings. E. F. SAWYER. CHARLES HOSSFELD. CHARLES HADLEY. Radersburg, 31. T., January 11, 1876. To the Editor oi the Herald: The above card was drawn up for publica tion by our Board of Commissioners at my request, and would not have been sought had the situation been different ; but, while on business to Clancy one week ago, some per sonal enemies of mine, who had failed in every other attempt to injure me, hired one James L. Wood, whose brains are in his mouth, to follow me and circulate the re port among those with whom he came in con tact that I was "strongly suspected." I thank the Commissioners for the courtesy they have shown me, and I defy the public to show where I have yet done a dishonorable act. I am truly sorry that I am compelled to defend myself against such a charge. If there are any who desire to think me guilty they are at liberty so to do, but the day is not far dis tant, I am sure, when the eyes of the public will be turned towards the right man. Respectfully, W. L. HALL. BREVITIES —The package of Heralds laid on the Speaker's desk last evening mysteriously dis appeared. The members were supplied, how ever, this morning with duplicate copies. We hope this will not occur again during the session. _The Printing Bill which passed both houses of the Legislature provides that the "official journal of the Territory" shall pub lish all the laws of the session, and that the compensation shall be $2 per square, ten lines of solid nonpariel to measure a square. Ten lines of solid nonpariel measures less than one inch. The columns of the New North - West , on the 2d, 3d and 4th pages, measure 35 inches. The pay for each column would be $50 for one insertion. The laws may be set in large type, but the measure is by the smallest type used. It would cost to set it up in this type $2.22$, leaving $47.77$ profit. There will be probably 1500 squares of laws, resolutions and memorials, which would cost to set up $122.50, and for which the Territory would pay $3,000, leaving a profit of $2,866.50. We would be pleased to do the publishing of the laws as provided in the bill at one-eight the compensation allow ed therein.
