Supt. Garner desires us to state that he
has a n the force he can conveniently work
at the Mullau Tunnel, and that he cannot
further increase the number of laborers until
the tunnel machinery is delivered and put
in operation. About one-half of the east end
cut has aleady been cut, and the present
force of men, working with pick, shovel and
borrow, is fully sufficient to complete the ex
cavation up to the granite face by the time
the engines, air compressors, and drills are
on the ground. This notice is given that
laborers may not needlessly make the trip to
the tunnel with the expectation that work
can be secured. When additional men are
required Mr. Garner will cause it to be
Messrs. Jurgens & Price have put ou a
daily express line between Helena and the
Tunnel, making the run out in about three
hours, and back in a little more than two
hours. It is amazing the amount of carry
ing business a little camp of sixty orseveuty
ji vc people creates, commencing from the
vci v start. The passenger and express hauls
arc large and are every day increasing, but
provision lias been made for every public
' private want. Should the recent min
discovcries near the Tunnel prove to be
as extensive and rich as the lucky prospect
ors confidently predict a camp of importance
is liable to be started there at once.
The Gift Drawing in lintte.
The drawing of prizes in the distribution
of Lion City real estate took place, says the
billin', in Butte on Saturday night. The
ticket bearing the number 027 drew the
capital prize valued at $10,000, and is sup
nosed to be held in Helena. The fourth
, , o-riA
pnze of a house and lot, valued at §o00, was
drawn oy ticket No. 316. The sixth prize
a house and lot, valued at $300, was drawn
by ticket No. 1237. At this point the drawing
was continued till to-night at the same place.
There are remaining to be drawn, the second
prize, valued at $3,200; the third prize,
\ alued pt §1,500 ; the fifth, seventh, eighth,
ninth and tenth, each valued at $300. As
tin* greater majority of the numbers drawn
la>t night happened not to hit on the prizes,
there is a greater probability that holders of
tickets not yet drawn, and purchasers of
those for sale to-day by Mr. Tarbell, will
conic out at the large end of the horn.
In the last number of Hall's Journal of
J ha llh is given a remedy which is sustained
by high authority as being a certain cure for
small-pox, and equally efficacious for scarlet
fi ver, which, in its virulent form, is fully as
fatal. The remedy is as follows : Sulphate
of zinc, one grain ; foxglove (digitalis), one
grain; half a teaspoonful of sugar. Mix
with two tablespooufuls of water, and when
thoroughly mixed add four ounces of water.
Take a spoonful every hour. The disease i
will disappear in twelve hours.
The dose given above is for an adult: for j
children it should be less according to age. !
This remedy is not a quack medicine, but
comes from the highest medical authority j
and school of Paris. It is spoken of so con- j
tidently by those who have used it that they
declare no case will fail under its application ;
that its general knowledge and use would
remove all necessity for pest houses, save
thousands of lives yearly, and would remove
a terror that now broods at times over every
house in the land. Kemember it, save it,
use it, keep it at hand when either of those
fearful diseases are around.
Itoyal Templars of Temperance.
This order has been in existence about
four years and lias a memljership of about
19,000. It is incorporated by a special act of
the Legislature of the State of New York,
with headquarters at Buffalo. Mr. Geo. H.
Taylor, of this city, is authorized to institute
new councils of the order, and we are told
one will soon be organized in Helena. It is
a temperance organization. All male inem
l>eis are insured for $1,000 or $2,000,
and the ladies for $500 or $1,000, as may be
desired. In case a meml>er from any cause
should become totally disabled he would re
ceive one half down and the remaining would
be payed at death. Assessments are made
according to age and amount of insur
ance, and range from 50 cents to $1.25 per
$1.000, with a ntemliership fee of $2.50 for
ladies and $5 for gentlemen. After becoming j
a member, either ladies or gentlemen can
take advantage of the Endowment plan at
an expense of $2 and an extra medical ex
examination at the same rates oi assessment
as above, which gives an additional insurance
of §2,000. One half of this smn is payed to
the insured after having passed his life ex

From the Daily Herald of November 22.
Major Arthur, who has completed the cur
rent payments at Forts Missoula and Ellis,
has returned to Helena and is engaged in ar
ranging his affairs prior to departure with
his family east. The Major's order directs
him to report to the Department of the East,
his assignment to be either in the city of
New York or on Governor's Island, as he may
select. In view of the fact that Paymaster
Dewey has been relieved from duty in Bos
ton and ordered to report to the Command
ing General of the Department of Dakota,
it may become a matter of choice whether
Major Arthur will succeed that officer at the
Hub. As to Major Arthurs successor here
some speculations are rife, Major Dewey
ranks from 1867—to some extent a veteran
in the service—and his wishes in the matter
of assignment may in a manner be deferred
to. Assigned to the military district of Mon
tana he would become the ranking Paymas
ter here. Should he be assigned to Fort
Snelling (Department Headquarters) Major
Bates would he relieved from duty at that
I post, and would likely fmd his assignment
here. We arc easily persuaded that no very
i lively contest for the "Montana mission" is
: liable at this season of the year to arise. No
paymaster will altogether "hanker" after a
winter's circuit-riding over Arthur's 800-mile
ambulance rides and routes in this Territory.
Evidently one or the other of these gentle
men will come in for this western prize, and
we wait to learn which of the two will win
it. Major Blaine cannot be left without an
assistant, and more than any other is he per

St. Peter's Rectory.
Last evening an important church matter
called the vestrymen ot St. Peters church
together. The matter before the gentlemen
was Purchase ot a rectory tor the Kev.
j, M Duff Mr Dnff has long siuce bce n
exceedingly anxious to get his family out
here and settled in this city ; but the inabil
ity to secure a suitable house has deferred
him from sending for them. For some time
past the subject of purchasing a rectory for
St. Peter's has been discussed and deliberated
upon by the members of the Episcopal
I church, all of whom were unanimous in
j their approval of it. They were unable to
carry the plan out, owing to the lack of
houses for sale in Helena ; but at last their
perseverance has received its reward. The
vestrymen have purchased the residence of
Major William Arthur, on Broadway, the
consideration effected being $4,000. This is
a handsome piece of property, and the church !
is to be congratulated upon having made ;
such a fine purchase. The sale of the prop- '
erty has only been effected recently. For
the present, owing to arrangements made by j
the Kev. Mr. and Mrs. Duff, the latter with
her little ones will spend the winter in the
State of New York. Towards the early sum- ;
mer Airs. Duff and family will make the |
overland trip to their future home in the
Kocky Mountains, where a warm welcome
awaits them from the parish of St. Peter's
and Helena at large. In the meantime the
residence has been rented to General Kuger
by the church, and he and his family will
move into it for the winter months, j

Desert Land Litigation.
A desert land case, involving the title to a
tract of ground of considerable value about
three miles south of Helena, in hearing be
fore the Register and Receiver for the past
two weeks, came to a conclusion yesterday, so
far as the submitting of evidence is concerned.
The parties to the case are Willliam Wallace,
contestant, and S. K. Boyce, sr., defendant.

will not be reached until some time next
Desert Land Sales.
In the Helena Land Office, last week, up
j wards of $7,000 in cash sales of desert land
were made. Twenty of these sales, or more
than two-thirds of the whole number, were
locations in Beaverhead and Aladison coun
ties, on the line or within a few miles of the
Utah & Northern Kailraod. The lands thus
purchased are in bodies varying from 80 to
640 acres each. Yesterday the laud sales
under the desert act exceeded $1,000.

Movement of Machinery.
Transportation is on the way to move from
Silver Bow the engines, air compressors and
other machinery recently delivered there for
the Mullen Tunnel work. The entire equip
ment, with the possible exception of the
15,000 pound boiler, will probably be placed
at the Tunnel site as early as next week.
The hauling outfits operating between the
railroad and Butte are said to be light and
two few in number to handle the machiner}',
and hence one of the hundred heavy freight
ing trains daily rolling into town will likely
be sent from Helena to snake away the
weightier parts of the cargo.
Sinall-poxin Deer Lodge.
A telegraphic message informs the Helena
Board of Health that a genuine case of
small-pox has appeared at Deer Lodge. Pre
cautions against the spread of the scourge
are being taken. Butte physicians have
wired here for vaccine matter, and it is sup
posed that the disease has also broken out in
that camp. One case only ever appeared in
Helena—that of Lieutenant Bradley. The
patient was immediately quarantined outside
of the city and the premises guarded, and
the disease went no farther. Our West Side
neighbors should act in the same manner,
and their good health will be preserved from
so dangerous a foe.
The Board of Health having been advised
of the presence of small-pox in Deer Lodge
and Butte, would request every citizen of
, Helena to see that everv unvaccinated man
her of his family« protected against this dis
case—at the earliest possible moment.

A Bntli in the Missouri.
Yesterday Bartley Gahagen and two oth
| ers -vyitli him, cn roule from Meagher county
Helena, narrowly escaped drowning while
crossing the Missouri river near El Dorado
Bar. The party safely crossed the main
channel, but within a short distance of shore
on the Lewis and Clarke side, the ice gave |
way precipitating men and horses into the
river, giving them a thorough submerging in
the chilling waters. Fortunately none were
beyond their depth, and one after another
succeeded in scrambling from the stream,
the animals also finally extricating them
selves with safety.

Mrs. Loretta M. Crounse.
The death, Sunday morning, of Mrs.
Loretta M. Crounse, wife of Silas H. Crounse,
was an event not unexpected to those near
to and recently attending at her bedside.
Her illness was of several weeks duration,
during which time all that medical skill and
tender care could suggest were employed,
but failed to succor her failing strength.
Mrs. Crounse was a woman of many loveable
traits of character. Never of strong health,
her delicate constitution was supported by a
resolute spirit which at no time till her last
illness desponded. The loss a few months
since of a beloved sister doubtless contributed
to weaken her hold on life and to fix in her
mind the thought that her earthly pilgrim
mage, too, was done, and the time come to
join the dear one who had preceeded her to
the world beyond. A bright household is
left desolate in this sad bereavement of hus
band and children. A large number of
friends, who greatly admired and loved Mrs.
Crounse, will share in the grief which has
fallen upon the family and sympathize with
that feeling which esteems her death a loss
to the community as well as to the sorrow-j
ing home. FourTittle ones, including a babe
three weeks old, are left motherless, and to
wards them, and the bereaved husband, all
hearts will tenderly turn in this sad hour.
Nelson G. Haskell.
Nelson G. Haskell, only son of W. S. Has
kell, died in this city Sunday morning after
a brief illness. His sickness, we learn, re
sulted from an affection of the kidneys,
aggravated by a cold, and resulted fatally
after several days of suffering. Deceased
was a young man of 26 years, a bright scholar
who graduated some years ago with high
honors from the Helena Graded School. He
came here with his parents from Wisconsin
in the early years of the Territory, a mere
lad, and grew up in our midst to manhood.
He bore an excellent character, was always
industrious, and by all who knew him was
held in high esteem. For some time he was
trusted clerk in the employ of Messrs.
& Pope, and subsequently was with
his father and mother on a stock ranch in
northern Lewis and Clarke. Only a few
days ago he came with his father to Helena
to arrange for moving back to the city.
While his father was absent removing Mrs.
Haskell and the family effects here, he was
taken suddenly ill. Dispatches notifying
the parents failed to reach them, and they
being called away, was fortunately gratified,
and she was with him through the vigils of |
Saturday night and to the lionr of his death, i
ministering to him as only a mother could.
The sympathy of many old friends and ac- j
quaintances will go out to Air. and All's, i
were left in ignorance of their son's eondi
tion up to the time of reaching town on Sat
urday evening. The sufferer's wish, repeat
edly expressed, to see his mother before
Haskell in their great bereavement. Alay
their sad hearts be comforted by Him who
alc-ne can help them in sorrow such as theirs.
Mrs. S. L. Holtznmn.
Another sweet spirit has passed away from
earth ; another home is desolate ; another
family piteously stricken. Nowhere in the
length and breadth of the land could death
bave found a more shining mark than he did
last Friday night, when he took Airs. S. L.
Holzman within his cold embrace and bade
her bid adieu to all her loved ones. Such a
busy, healthy life had beeu her's—one so
full of light, and love, and ministry—and so
very recent had been her illness that her
friends scarcely realize she has so soon passed
from their sight. She was one of those sweet,
cheerful women, who carry sunshine where
ever they go, the very queen of those who
leave unspeakable desolation when death
claims them. In deeds of public charity she
was ever in the foremost ranks, but her gifts
were unostentatious, and her alms giving
never mentioned. She was an able, worthy
president of the ladies' Hebrew Relief society
until within the last few months, but more
than all, she was a devoted wife and a true
mother. Mr. Holzman has lost the truest
and best of wives, and has the heartfelt sym
pathy of a large circle of friends, both for
himself and his motherless children, of
whom there are three, the youngest being a
wee baby girl only three weeks old.
Dora Sands, such was her maiden name,
was born in the city of Kabseh, in Kussia
Poland, in 'the year 1847. Some fifteen
years ago she came to America,
where she was received by a large
circle of devoted brothers and sisters, who
bitterly mourn her loss to-day, and was
married in Helena, Montana Territory,
in September, 1871, to the well known
and estimable Air. S. L. Holzman. This
proved a most happy union, and not
until three years ago did they leave Helena
to make Denver their home. Here they
need no introduction. The bereaved hus
band who sits alone to-night has the warm
sympathy of the entire community.

We were pleased to see the familiar phiz
of Alex. Profit Tuesday evening. He re
turned with his family from the East on
Monday. Mr. Profit, it will be remembered,
started East about four months ago with a
drove of 4,000 sheep, belonging to himself
and W. F. Sloan. Being unable to make
satisfactory terms with the Northern Pacific
Company, he drove his herd to Fort Pierre,
and shipped from thence by the Chicago &
Northwestern road to Chicago. We believe
Air. Profit is entitled to the credit of making
the first drive and shipment of sheep from
Alontana to the Chicago market, and whether
the venture has proved a very profitable one
or not to himself and partner, he has demon
strated what can be done, and pioneered the
way in what will prove to be an important
and profitable industry to the Territory
