From the Daily Herald of May 29. MURDER. On Main Street, in Broad Daylight. Ban. Parry is Shot and mortally Wounded by Jim. Gloster. Yesterday afternooD, between the hours of four and five o'clock, a murdor was commit ted on Main street, in front of Piatt's livery stable—Dan. Farry the victim and Jim Glo« ter the murderer. The G loster quartz lode, 8ilver Creek dis trict, is quite a noted mine. It was discovered last fall by Jim Gloster, who later in the sea son sold out to his partueis, receiving in cash about $750. lie came to town and one day be fell down the steps leading from the Magnolia hotel to Farry's saloon and broke his leg. It was claimed by some, aud denied by others, at the time that he was under the influence of liquor. Be that as >t may, it is a strange coincidence that, some four months atterwaids, within a few feet of that spot, he shot down, apparently in cold blood, a human being. Gloster, flora that time until about a week ago, was in the Sister's Hospital. His doctor's bill and hospital expenses amounted to about $300, so that he had when he left the hospital about $450. No sooner was he out in the city than he commenced drinking—and to his inordinate thirst for whiskey he can ascribe his present situation. On Sunday night Mr. Farry kept his sa loon open much later lhau usual. When be was about to close up, at 2 o'clock in the morning, on going out on the sidewalk, he saw Gloster lying on the sidewalk a little way8 above, asleep, "dead drunk." Gloster had been in his saloon earlier in the evening, and had exhibited considerable money. Far ry thought that if Gloster laid there all night he would likely be robbed. Calling assist ance, he carried Gloster into his saloon, laid him in the rear room, took his money away from him counting it before the witnesses, there being $450. In the morning Gloster woke up, sober, and missed his money. Far ry told him he had taken it, and, in the pres ence of witnesses, counted it out to him. Gloster was so glad to recover his money that he "stood treat" and offered to take all bands out to the Springs. This was agreed to. Tue party consis ed of Gliat r, Dan Farry, D in Madden, aud Chea Travis, the driver, et whom they hired the team. It is said that Gloster spent considerable money at the Springs, but of this we may not be correct ly advised. The party returned during the forenoon. Gloster was drunk and wanted to lie down in one of the stalls in the Travis stable |o sleep it off; but the stable boys, who had heard that he had considerable money about him, would not let him do so for fear that something might happen to him and they be suspicioned. So Gloster went iuto Farry's saloon, took another drink, went iuto the rear room and fell asleep. He tells our reporter that he woke up some time in the early* afternoon aud that his money was gone. He placed the mat ter in the hands of Sheriff Jtffeiis and Deputy Sheriff Hathaway, who advised him to keep perfectly quiet about the matter, and they would try and ferret out the guilty party. He did not heed their advice. Siuce that time until the shot was fired he has been drinking and accusing several parties of having robbed him. Yesterday he remarked to two or three persons that he would "fix" a certain party if his money was not forthcoming. In the forenoon be went iuto A. Birken feld's and looked at some revolvers. In the afternoon, from half to three quarters of an hour before the shooting, he again weDt to Birkenfeld's and told him he wanted the best ten-dollar pistol he could get for the money. Mr. Bir kenfeld sold him a 38-calibre revolver. Glos ter at this time (Mr. 3 says) was perfectly cool and collected and showed no evidence of intoxication. Shortly after four o'clock Gloster went into Farry's saloon and took a driuk. Soon there after Farry was standing on the outside of his saloon, when Gloster walked up to withiu four or five feet of him and pulled the pistol out of bis pocket, and said : "Farry, you have that money," or, "Farry, will you give me that money." Farry, who, it is said, bad both hands in his pocket, said, "Jimmy, is that loaded ?" At that instant Gloster pulled the trigger—a flash,a report, and the hall had accomplished its deadly purpose. Parties standing near by. Dot knowing that he was hit, called to Farry to take the pistol away from Gloster. Farry grappled with Gloster, who was trying to shoot »gain. Un der Sneriff H ithaway, who was standing a few yards away, rushed to the rescue, aud, as Gloster got the revolver to a half-cock, he managed to thrust his thumb under the ham mer, and, after a desperate resistence, wrench ed the weapon away, arrested and took him to jail. Farry, putting his hand on bis stom ach, said ; "Run for a doctor—I fear I am done for." Dr. Mcllbenny was called in. He found that the ball bad entered about one inch below and a little to the right of the navel. He administered to the wounded man a hypo dermic injection of morphine, and bad him carried home on a litter. He then probed the wound until the cavity was reached, when the Doctor pronounced the case hopeless. After wards Dr. Reece was called, but nothing could be done beyond giving opiates to re lieve the pain. Internal hemmorbage set in and continued during the night. The dying man was conciousupto within fifteen minutes of bis death, which occurred at 8:10 o'clock this morning. An ante mortem statement was taken during the night, but of its import we are not infotmed, except that a solemn denial was made of having robbed Gloster. The deceastd was 48 years of age. He has been a resident of Helena for many years, and has always borne a good reputation as an honest, peaceable citizen. He leaves a wife and three children, the oldest child, by his first wife, a man grown ; a boy 4 years old and a boy baby about three months old. Dr. W. L Steele, county coroner, held an inquest this morning, aud the juiy returned the following verdict : Territory of Montana, county of Lewis and Claike—8. S. An inquisition holden at Helena, in the county oi Lewis ami Claike, on the 29 n day ot May, A.. D. 1879, before me, Win. L. Sieele, Coroner ot county, upon the body of Daniel Farry, there l>ing dead, by the jurors whose names are hereunto subscribed, the sa>d jurors upon their oaths do say that the said Dmiel Farry came to hi - death from the effects of a pistol shot w'ound, said shot be ing fired by one James Gl<»«ter, with deliber ate and felonious intent. In testimony whereof the said jurors have hereunto set their*hands the day and year aforesaid. W. 8 P.UN'ER, C L VAWTEU, JNO A QUIRK, E ( LOS I ER. JNO H. CURTIS, J. A. THOM. A Herald reporter interviewed Gloster in the county jail to-day. He is about 35 years of age, a little below the medium size, and rather heavy set. He is a uative of Teilee, County Kerry, Ireland. He has been a resi dent of the Pacific Coast for a number of years, coming to Montana two years ago from San Francisco, via Dead wood. He worked for the Montana company for a spell, but has been in the Silver Creek country most of the time. While Gloster is not good looking, he has not, so far as we can discern, the countenance of a murderer. He is quite reticent about the affair—he is -willing to talk but he don't say much. He claims that this is the first time he was ever arrested; that be was always a peaceable man; that Farry robbed him, but that he had no intention of shooting him until Farry "pitched on to him;" aud that the bottom of his trouble was drink ing whisky.

The Funeral of Dan. Farry. The solemn tolling of the bell of the Cath olic church this morning at 10 o'clock, an nounced the moving of the procession ac companying the funeral cortege, from the house of the deceased, on its way to the church of the Sacred Hearts. The procession was headed by the Silver Cornet Baud and the standard bearer of Helena Fire Engine Company No. 1, followed by the members of the company decorated with their badges of membership and mourning. A very long line of carriages followed in the funeral march, measured by the sweet aud plaintive notes of Beethoven's Funeral March. Arriv ing at the church, asd the coffin placed on a catafalque, in frout of the main altar, the sounds of the band were hushed aud the choir intoned the solemn chant of the Ifepro Fundis as the Rev. Father Palladino began the celebration of High Mass. At the conclusion the Reverend Father, in a few remarks of affection and consolation to the bereaved wife and children, deprecated the ruthless and sudden taking off of the de ceased, after which the fiual prayers aud the last sad rites were said and the procession moved out from the church to the tunes of the funeral dirge by the band, and followed the.remains of Dan Farry to the Caiholic cemetery. A larger funeral bus seldom been seen in Helena, and all seemed impressed by the outrage that has taken from our midst a citizen of long standing, and one who bore among our people the character of a quiet, charitable and respectable citizen. ■j. m ». 11 » I In Meiiioriam.

He was also a skillful surveyor of land, employed in the county. When the Shore Lice and Val ley railroads w-ere built, be was agent for the companies in purchasing the right of way.

Organize Your Mock Association*. We regret to see the indifference with which the stock men take bold of the project of organizing associations in the several val leys. It is probably caused by the failure of some one to make a move, or the lack of op portunity for neighbors to have an expression of views upon the subject. But now that the season for the spring round up is at band, it is to be hoped that the herdsmen may talk the matter over and bring about the organi zation of district societies throughout the whole country. Certainly there should be no he8itency in uniting such an organization. We think it of special iutererest to the owuers of small herds siuce they will receive the same benefits a9 the large owuers, aud the voice and vote of the man owuing 25 head of cattle, will count the same at the annual meeting as the vote of a person who has that many hundred. The fee, $5 is but a slight item, and there is hardly a stock grower in the county but will be benefited double that val ue by the information gained through the system proposed to he enforced relative to the trading of estraÿed animals.
