from the Daily Herald of June 2*. Dealt! or JameN Horn buck le. It is with regret that we announce the death of James Hornbuckle, the sad tvent having occurred in this city on- Sunday evening, the 27th insl. Deceased was born in Missouri, emigrated to California in i860, were he re mained for geveral years ; from thence to the Kootenai country, and in 1867 came to Mon tana, locating at Cave gulch, Meagher county, where he has since been engaged in mining and stock growing. He was for some years quite a prominent Democratic politician, and for two terms, we believe, represented his county in ffie upper house of the Legislative Assem bly. At the time of his death he was one of the Commissioners of Meagher count}'. De ceased was 48 years of age, and leaves a wife, who will have the sympathy of many friends in her sad bereavement. —-*4 m 4—-— Heavy Washout on the l't»h A Northern.

From the Daily Herald of June 29. Jticob Auerbach of Helena Accidentally Killed in New York. The following brief telegram tells its own sad story : New York, June 28, 1880. Henry Klein, Helena, Montana : Jacob Auerbach was accidentally killed on railroad this evening. Use judgment in tell ing his brother. L. Gans. The sad news spread rapidly in our city, and was received with heartfelt expressions of sorrow on every hand. The deceased was the junior member of the firm of Auerbach, Wells A Co., and was thirty years of age. He came to Helena twelve years ago, when but a boy, and has been continually engaged in business in our city since that time. By his pleasant manner and strict integrity he made many friends. He left Helena a couple of months ago for the double purpose of vis iting his aged mother in Germany and seek ing a little recreation from his business.. About two weeks ago the pleasant news was received from New York that Mr. Auerbach had formed an engagement with an estima ble young lady, and would be married upon his return from Europe. The deceased was a member of Excelsior Lodge No. 5, I. O. O. F., of this city. Mr. Klein broke the news as gently as pos sible to Mr. L. Auerbach. It has completely prostrated him. He thought everything of his brother. To him he left the management of his large business interests in Helena, he being a resident of Ban Francisco, where he spends a greater portion of his time. It was only yesterday that Mr. Auerbach, in conver sation with Mr. Sterling, after saying how much trust he had placed in his brother, said : "I have a feeling that something will happen to Jakey while he is away." So firmly was this impressed upon his mind that he repeat ed it, in not exactly the same language, three times during the few minutes' conversation. Mr. Auerbach, as well as all the relatives of the deceased, have the sincere sympathy of the people of Helena. If we are correct, this is the first fatal ac cident that has ever occurred to a resident of Montana w hile absent in the States. Twenty Thousand Dollars rency. tu New C'ur Thc First National Bank of Helena re ceived per express yesterday about $20,000 in bran new currency of the First National bank of Benton, with the autographs thereon of Wm. G. Conrad, President, and E. G. Maday, Cashier. The First National of Fort Benton is now one of the permanent institu tions cf the country, and under its present able management will do an extensive busi From Yogo. Mr. W. A Cietzki, a resident of Bozeman, but for some months past has been prospect- ing in the Yogo mines, arrived from that country on Saturday la 9 t a wiser if not a bet- ter man than when he joined the stampede from Gallatin county to the new Eldorado. Mr. Cietzki says there is absolutely nothing in the way of gold or silver mines to warrant any one going there, and that he could find better prospects in the streets of Helena. He has had enough of Y ogo, and he thinks the majority of those who have gone there are °f the same opinion. -— » » Route No. 38,141. The Postmaster General has directed that the new post offices of Hoover and Kalatta be embraced in route No. 36,144, from Mar- tinsdale to Fort Benton, and the service ip- creased to three times a week. This order is to take effect on July 1st. From the Daily Herald of J une 30. F0E6EEY. Win. H. H. Howard, Late Clerk in the Quartermaster*.«* Office, Helena. William Henry Harrison Howard (as he was in the habit of calling himself 'for short') has departed from Helena. His whereabouts are at present unknown, or else the heavy hand of the law would be upon him. How ard came to Montana last year as clerk for Maj. A. G. Robinson, Quartermaster for this District. He had been with the Major for about five years, and during all that time had been a faithful, efficient clerk. But he turned over a new' leaf when he came to Helena His habits became altogether too convivial for the good of the service. About the first of June he asked permission to go to Bismarck to meet his wife. Permission was granted, accompanied by a strong intimation from Major Robinson that, unless he materi ally mended his ways, he need not return. On the 16th inst. Major R. received a telegram from Howard stating he was about to leave Bismarck for Benton, with his wife. On Thursday last the Quartermaster had occa sion to request a statement of his account from the First National Bank. In compar ing the statement with his check book, he found he was charged with a check issued to Paul & Hanley, for $200. On the stub of his check book it was $2.00, the correct amount Supposing it to be a mistake, he called the attention of the cashier to the matter, who produced the check in question. On exami nation it was shown that the check had been "raised" from $2.00 to $200.00 ; that the payable to "order" had been erased and "bearer" inserted. It had been paid by the Bank of Bismarck and forwarded here for collection. But it appears the bank there could not understand why a check payable to bearer should be so far away from home, and they required Mr. Howard to put his signa ture upon the back of it. And there it is, as natural as life, *'\V. H. H. Howard." Tele grams were immediately sent to Bismarck, but the wires having been down an answer was not received until last evening. Major Kirk, Quartermaster, telegraphed Major Rob inson in substance as follows : "Howard arrived at Bismarck on the 11th and left on the 12th, starting for St. Paul to meet his wife. There was a lady by the name of Mrs. E. L. Stower, or Storer, traveling with him. I introduced him to the cashier of the bank. Can you tell me where Howard's home is, where his wife resides, or the home of his parents, if he has any?" To the above interrogatories, Major Robin son was unable to give any satisfactory reply. He does not think that Howard's parents are alive, and he never heard him say what part of the country he considered his home. He was in the volunteer army during the war, since which time he has been employed in the quartermaster and commissary depart ments of the Government. Howard is about 45 years of age, medium height, thick-set, sandy complexion, red moustache and goatee. He has thrown away a position that, with good behavior, he could probably have held for a lifetime, and laid himself amenable to a term in the penitentiary, for the pitiful sum of tw r o huudred dollars. The check in question was drawn for $2 00 and mailed, or at least put in an envelope and addressed, to Paul & Hanley, Shed's Bridge. Howard must have abstracted the check and destroyed the letter, instead, as wa 9 the custom, of giving it to the messen ger to mail. The First National Bank of Helena. The official report of the First National Bank of Helena, published in the Daily Herald on Monday night, is a first-rate ex- hibit for one of the oldest and most substan- tial monied institutions in the Territory. It shows a deposit of $974,316 and a surplus of $134,000. The capital, surplus and deposits aggregate $1,298,000. Of this amount, $225,- 000 is in U. S. bonds, and $206,000 in cash and sight exchange. This would be a good exhibit for any of the banks in Chicago, St. Louis or other metropolitan cities. We con- gratulate the directors and stock-holders of the First National Bank on this very credit- able and excellent showing and wish them continued success in the management of this great monied institution. -- mÊ ■« ►*. ^ -— Short Horned Bulla. Charles Anceny, of Gallatin county, who is one of the most successful breeders of fine stock in the Territory, arrived yesterday with forty-two head of short-horn graded bulls, from eight to thirteen months old. The band was purchased last fall by Sands & Co., of this city, and Mr. Anceny trans- ferred the animals to them immediately upon their arrival* They will be driven to their cattle herd on the Teton. Mr. Anceny makes a specialty of raising blooded stock, and no man in the Territory has met with better or more uniform success, and we are pleased to learn that it has been a source of great profit as well. It certainly pays to raise fine stock. Klag« Robbery. Salt Lake, June 29.— The stage from Challiß, Idaho, was robbed Saturday night by- six convicts who escaped from the Idaho penitentiary. Seven passengers were in the coach, five men and two women. They were robbed of all their valuables, amounting to a few hundred dollars, and stripped of all their clothing, being left absolutely naked. In that condition they traveled several miles to the next station, where sheets and blankets were obtained for covering until they reached the Utah & Noithern Railroad 8unday even- ng. Some arrived here this morning. his ful He ing Deatb of Col. D. Ï. min. It becomes our painful «duty to chronicle the death of Col D. I. Miln, of New York City, the business partner of Col. A. J. Smith, and a gentleman widely known in Helena and in many other portions of the Territory. Col. Miln arrived on the Benton coach yes terday, coming direct from his home in New York, which he left about three weeks ago, and making the trip via the Missouri river. He registered at the International Hotel, had his supper, and afterwards took a little stroll through the city. In the evening he com plained of feeling unwell, saying that he thought he had taken cold on the trip over from Benton. He retired quite early, went to sleep, but awoke about 12 o'clock, at which time he felt so much worse that he called a servant and summoned a physician. Congestion of the brain set in, and he continued to si nk rapidly until 12 o'clock to-day, when he ex pired. Col. Miln, in the war of the rebellion, com manded for a time the 65th New York volun teers, and w r as subsequently on the staff of General Wright, as Provost Marshal of the sixth army corps, in which capacity he serv ed with distinction. He was a man of wealth and intelligence, and had made large invest ments here in stock and real estate. Many friends in Montana will sincerely regret the untimely death of this estimable man. F Cal Soooting Scrape at Brown's Bridge. The Miner gives the following particulars of the shooting scrape at Brown's Bridge, Beaverhead county, which occurred on Sat urday night, the 26th inst.: "Several days ago a party, composed of a man known here abouts as "Big Smith," Ed. Stofer and two Park street women, left by private convey ance for the terminus, and on Saturday night camped at Brown's bridge. About 12 o'clock it is alleged, Smith went to Stofer's bed and proposed breaking into the saloon for the purpose of stocking up with whisky. Stofer very properly refused f > become a party to such a transaction, whereupon Smith becom ing greatly enraged, began a most brutal at tack upon his companion, jumping on his body, kicking him in the face, and inflicting other severe injuries. Such was the sudden ness of this totally unexpected assault that for a few moments Stofer was unable to of fer any resistance, but finally succeeding in pulling a pistol from beneath the pillow, he shot his assailant four times, producing al most instant death. As may be imagined, this midnight shooting caused great excite ment at the bridge, but there being no officer present, no arrest was made. On Sunday morning the two women continued their journey to the terminus, but Stofer, convinced that he was justified in defending his own life by taking Smith's, remained near the scene of the affray for the pumose of deliver ing himself into the custody of an officer as soon as one should arrive from Glendale. The inquest was expected to be held on Sun day, but as the stage did not arrive until very late yesterday the result could not be ascer tained. From the driver of the overland coach last night, we learn that the inquest was held ; that the juryjgave a verdict in ac cordance with the facts above stated, Stofer had a hearing before Justice Brown, and was discharged from cuetody."

Lancaster, a successful farmer and stockgrower of Missoula county, arrived to day with a load of wool, which he sold to Paris Gibson. This is Mr. Lancaster's first visit to the east side of the Rocky mountains since 1849—31 years ago. In '49 Mr. L. crossed the plains from Ft. Leavenworth to California with a large party, many of whom have since located in Montana. Among this number was the late James Hornbuckle. — Hon. I. I. Lewis is seen upon our streets He is just up from the new mines on Woods river, Idaho. These mines are about miles from Blackfoot on the Utah & North ern, a splendid road across the prairie lead ing to the mountains and mines. It is a new camp, having been struck in May. Already about 50 silver and galena leads have been of as 125 f recorded. They prospect well, and if they hold cut in depth they will be valuable.

H. Bullard, Sheriff of Custer, and his deputy, H. R. Wormwood. Harris will be taken to Raders burg, having secured a change of venue to Jefferson county. The officers also had in their custody, Sam Traster, convicted of horse stealing and breaking jail, and sen tenced to the Penitentiary for six years. —The Algonquin mill at Philipsburg is in very successful operation, as the heavy bullion shipments amply testify. In the three months and twenty days during which it has been run the silver product has been 120,000 ounces, or upwards of $135,000. Officers of the company who visited the property last week and stayed several days, expressed abundant satisfaction at the excellent con dition of the mines and the successful man age ment of the mill. The company at pre sent gives employment, to about 50 men.— Miner. —An Eastern exchange says that General Gibbon, the old commander of the famous Iron Brigade, of Wisconsin, attended with his wife the recent soldiers' meeting at Mil waukee. Mrs. Gibbon, who had accompan ied her husband throughout his campaigning and who was almost worshipped by the com mand, rode with him in the procession. The wildest cheers greeted Gen. Grant and Gen. Gibbon, but when the old soldiers caught sight of Mrs. Gibbon there was a great up roar, and they pressed forward, eager even to touch the hem of her dress, many of them breaking into tears and sobs. —The Iowa company which bought the Madisonian mill and several mines in Mead ow Creek district, have got fairly to work on their property. They have already extracted about 30 tons of ore from one of their mines, which they will run through the mill with the tailings that have accumulated there, and will pay well for re-working. They have sufficient of these to keep the mill running steadily through the season, with what quartz they can extract from the mine which they are developing. They are well satisfied with their prospects and say they like the country first-rate. Their surroundings show abundant evidence of the intelligence, indus try and thriftiness of the persons who com pose the colony, and we regard them as wel come acquisitions to the community.— Madi sonian. la Memoriam. At a special communication of Helena Lodge No. 3, A. F. & A. M., held at their hall on Tuesday, June 29th, 1880, the follow ing resolutions were unanimously adopted: Again the Great Reaper das thrust in his sickle and gathered another sheaf to increase the garner of the dead. Our brother, James Hornbuckle, alter months of heroic suffer ing, left us on Monday morning, June 28th, 1880, for that bourne from whence no traveler returns, where sufferings cease and the weary find eternal rest. We, his surviving brothers of Helena Lodge No. 3, A. F. & A. M., sen sibly feeling the great loss that has befallen us, do hereby unitedly resolve, 1st. That our deceased brother, by an hon orable, useful and successful life, consistently exemplifying the tenets of his Masonic pro fession, faithfully and with credit discharging every trust devolved upon him in the public as well as private walks ot life, won and de served the respect of all who knew him, and the warm attachment of those who were privileged to know him more intimately. 2d. That, taught by his faithful life, his patient endurance of a long and distressing disease, while bowing in acquiescence to the decrees of Infinite Wisdom, which is merci ful even in His chastisements, we will cherish our departed brother's memory, imitate his virtues, in hopes with him to merit tbe ap proving words, "Well done faithful servant, enter thou into the glory of thy Lord." 3d. That our tenderest expression of sym J M. by Mr. al, son C, per 35c Co., Gun $4 60 |1 17c. and beer $8 toes, 8c; pathy go forth for her whose heart and home have been laid desolate by tbe sundering of the closest and -dearest of earthly ties. 4th. That we drape our lodge in mourning for the usual period as a symbol of the dark- ness that overshadows our hearts. That we cause these resolutions to be entered of record and copies furnished for the widow and for publication. - — a ► ►► ^------ PASSENGER« FROM THE TERMINES, [SPEOIAL TO THE HEltALD.] The following passengers left on the coach this morning.
