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 _
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

The Best Récupérant
Of failing energy, that to which the fagged out man of
business, the brain-1 atigued author, the tired advocate
or the weary artizaa can resort with the greatest cer
tainty that it will revive his overwrought powers, is
Hoatetter's Stomach Bitters, a most genial tonic cor
dial, as well as a benign remedy for disorders of the
stomach, liver, bowels and urinary organs, and a
means of eradicating and preventing intermittent and
remittent fevers. 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.

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

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.
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.
—Mr. James King, one of the early pio
neers of Montana, and for many years a lead

next week, and then visit .Diamond to look
after his valuable mining interests in Confed
erate. He is stopping at the Cosmopolitan
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."

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.

pounds when in condition) color, style and action to
make him a most desirable horse for improving the
stock of this Territory, and can already show as
P romising trotting colts as any horse in Western New
ork. He was sired by the noted Old Henry Clay, the
Wadsworth Horse; Old Clay by Addrew Jackson, he
by Young Bashaw, he by Imp. Grand Bashaw—-all
noted trotters in their day. Commins' dam, Lady
Avon, was a pure bred Messenger mare, of great speed
and endurance. She was sired by True Messenger, he
by Imp. Messenger.
The Clay stock at the present day rank first for
speed. The two ''Queens of the Turf," American Girl
and Lucy, were both sired by Geo. M. Patchen, a
grandson of Old Henry Clay, the sire of Commins.
Commins was awarded the First Premium at the New
York State Fair at Rochester in 1867, in the Three
year-old Stallion Race, and has since been serving at
Terms.— Twenty Dollars for the Season. Money to
he paid at time of service, or approved notes drawing
