From the Daily Herald of May 3. Arrested on the Charge of Hape. Sheriff McAndrews, of Deer Lodge, ar rived this morning, having left home last evening, and arrested James E. Owings, a druggist of that city, on the charge of com mitting rape upon the person of a young girl, about 12 years old, who lives with her mother in Deer Lodge. Mr. Owings arrived in this city last evening, coming over, as he claims, to replenish his stock of goods. He returned home to-day, in company with the Sheriff. The crime he is accused of is one of the worst in the calendar. Yet, from the upright business and moral character of Mr. Owings, as exemplified in a career of ten or twelve years in Montana, we, as well as his many personal friends in Helena, believe there is no truth in the accusation. Mr. Owings claims that it is a dastardly attempt to black mail him, as he can easily prove at the proper time. t _ A It«w. U. S. District Attorney, Merritt C. Page, as we are credibly informed, got into a quar rel on Tuesday evening, in a well known gambling house on Main street, with a certain " M. D." The quarrel originated over some petty matter, when the U. S. District Attor ney, who was a little the worse for divers and sundry drinks, hinted something about the "M. D." accompanying him to the sub urbs of the city for combat. The " M. D. ' thought matters could be settled as well out doors. Out of doors the two bellicose indi viduals went, and in a very few minutes the pugnacious Merritt C. received a severe drubbing from that same " M. D." Let us have peace. Freight Shipment«.

It not only enriches the blood and creates a new fund of energy in the system, but it has the effect of expelling impurities from the life current which beget disease. The injurious influence of abrupt transitions of temperature, of an unwholesome climate and injurious diet, are counteracted by it, and it pro motes digestion, appetite and sound repose. Give it a trial and be convinced. of of all of he From the Daily Herald of May 5. What n Montaniuu Says. Mr. M. Strong, of Sun River, is in receipt of a letter from Edward Flynn, formerly of Montana, but now atDeadwood. We are per mitted to make a few extracts : "In this vicinity is the richest gold-bear- ing quartz found in the Hills. There are sev- eral mills reducing the ore, and several more about to be erected. This is the only gulch in the Hills where placer mining pays, and the entire gulch will be worked out this sea- son. Then the Black Hills will have to de- pend altogether upon its quartz lor perma- nency. There will be quite a stampede to the Big Horn and Wind River country in a few Weeks, and I shall probably be travel- ing that way myself. This is a poor camp— provisions high and wages low. Thousands are arriving from the States, dead broke, and have to work for grub. Mechanics are like locusts. There are hundreds of Montana men here who wish themselves back again. If any of your friends are troubled with the Black Hills fever, advise them to stay at home, even if they have means to bring with them." - M -4 ►► M Volnutary Starvation. William Flynn who was re-sentenced last week to two years imprisonment in the peni tentiary for attempting to murder his fellow convict, Whiting, has taken a somewhat un usual course of retrenching expenses at that institution. Since his re-incarceration, a week ago last Tuesday, he has not tasted food nor drank water. He lies in bed in his cell, ab solutely refuses to touch food, and talks only in monosyllables, except when he asked one of the guards to get him some morphine. It is an unusual proceeding and especially singular in his case. He is as hard a look ing citizen as ever went inside the walls and his cold blooded attempt to murder shows his coarse, cruel nature.— Northwest. Marshall Wheeler received a letter last night from warden Fish, saying that Flynn had finally, after nine days absolute fasting, concluded not to " shuffle off this mortal coil " just yet, and has been persuaded to eat some gruel and is now making up for lost time, taking bis rations with the utmost regularity. Sad Bereavtiup.iit. J. M. Sweeney, Esq., has just received a private letter from Thomas C. Power, dated Chicago April 24th, in which he says that the only son and child of Col. George Clenden nin died there a few days ago of scarlet fe ver. This will be a sad blow to Colonel C., who is at Carroll and cannot yet have heard of his bereavement. Most Montanians have met this little boy at his grandfather's house in Washington City. His manners, intelli gence and bright open face made a favorable impression on all who knew him. His letters to his father here were perfect models of loving, childish correspondence. He was about ten years old, and was a most lovable child. His father and friends have our hear tiest sympathy in this great affliction. Personal —Mr. James King, one of the early pio neers of Montana, and for many years a lead ing merchant of Helena, whose arrival we announced yesterday, is meeting with a cor dial welcome from his old friends of the Me tropolis. Mr. King will remain in the city until next week, and then visit .Diamond to look after his valuable mining interests in Confed erate. He is stopping at the Cosmopolitan Hotel. Meagher County Court. The District Court of Meagher county ad journed yesterday morning, after a two weeks' session. Judge Wade and the Clerk of the Court, Col. Beattie, returned home last night. Also the following attorneys : Judge Chumasero, W. F. Chadwick, J. J. Williams, E. W. Toole and Jno. H. Shober. Development of Our Mines. An Eastern exchange refers to the failure of our railroad proposition, and says that al though it is much to be regretted, there will be no delay in the development of our mines on that score, and adds: "People left to themselves to help themselves seldom fail to accomplish the ends sought, and already the quartz mining industry of Montana has reach- ed a point where any appreciable retarding of its interests is impossible. If the Terri- tory depended on its placers alone for life,the case might be different ; but it has been found possible and profitable to mine and reduce both silver and gold ores at home, and this work will not cease. In addition, the Dry Concentration Works of the Montana Com- pany, at Jefferson, lately opened, inaugura- ted a new and very promising field of work, which, in the end, will do more towards com- pelling the trans-continental line to build into Montana than double the quantity of bonds lately voted and declined." --- wq - -rt »>• » ——--- An Expert. Dr. Price is well known as an expert in the study of Culipary Chemistry, and all of the manufactures of Steele & Price are the result of his researches. One of these discoveries is the Cream Baking Powder, by the use of which light, sweet biscuits, cakes, etc., at all times are a certainty. The market is flooded with cheap inferior baking powders, and adulteration is so extensively practiced, that the Cream Baking Powder does the work with two-thirds of the quantity required of any other kind. In view of such cheap impositions, the public are advised to ask for these pure and excel lent articles, if they cannot be obtained of one grocer may be of another. The purer the articles that com pose our dally food the better they are for health. Dr. Price's True Flavoring Extracts are really delicious. — D. W.
