From the Dailv Herald of February 27. SAT I 'It DAY'S SET-TO. V Frolic which was Mistaken lorn Fight. it appears from a card in the Independent, drafted by its editor and signed by eye-wit nesses at his solicitation, that tin* Woolfolk .Taiuason "mill'' was quite a different affair t'rom the version reported in the Herald of Saturday. We are confirmed in this opinion by interviews this morning with Messrs. Morris, Gebauer, Jamasou and others, all of whom discredit anything more than a pleasant interchange of pet names and a good-natured trial of muscular conclu sions. The epithets of ' liar" and "cheat'' and others which modesty forbids us to put in print, were swapped by the contestants m the best of good humor, and the gentlemen were quite altogether most kindly intentioued toward each other. C'ol. Wool folk with a bland smile gracefully gestured as if he would like to arrange the carelessly worn neck-tic of his adversary. Mr. .lama-on. being a mechanic, playfully illustrated the piston-stroke principle, to tiu* intense amusement of Col. Wool folk. Thoroughly enthused by this time, both gen tlemen threw their arms about each other, warmly embraced, and in the very heat of 1 heir caresses both rolled to 'ne floor, hug ging each other most ardently aud affection ately. and holding their loving grip as if their squeezing might end all too quickly'. Sure enough rough and unsympathetic hands suddenly interfered and cut short the ecstatic paroxism. the encircling arms were rudely released from their endear ing clasp, and the two adorable souls were unwound and parted with it shock. For a moment or two they stood looking askance at each other and yearning to in dulge in just one more delightful squeeze, but this was forbidden as a surfeit of fun, and amid a roar of laughter one gentleman was shoved out of the door and the other under tin* table. Thus ended the sweet lit- ! tie tilt which rumor and report magnified on Saturday tothedimensionsofabar-room light. The cordially good relations subsisting be tween the gentlemen is shown to-day by Mr. Ja mason extending an invitation to Col. Wool folk to pay a social call upon Judge, Davis, and before his Honor the gentlemen, arm-in-arm. will proceed to explain the joke and tell all there was of the frolicsome occur rence. Fell Out. Yesterday afternoon, while Mr. and Mrs. .lames Muh were returning to Helena from a \ isit to the Mullan tunnel site, they met with an accident which fortunately had uo very serious results. They occupied the rear seat of tlu* conveyance, while their guests. Messrs, das. Cage and W. W. Mirk, sat opposite them. In the vicinity of Ten Mile, in crossing a bridge or hole that was frozen over, one of the wheels went into it suddenly, giving a violent lurch. It was un expected and both Mr. and Mrs. Muir were thrown out. They- fell into the hole, which was several feet deep and full of water, aud were thoroughly drenched. They were not hurt seriously, however, although Mr. Muir was very much jarred, having struck his head in falling. He was confined to his bed to-day, but bis physician says that he will soon he out again. V Beautiful Clock. An unique clock from Denver, Colorado, ami placed on exhibition iu the show win dow of Messrs. Gen. 1'. Keeves & Co., at tracted no little attention to-day from passers-by. It is termed the "Pike's Peak Clock." and is composed of thirty-live differ ent specimens of minerals, and is exceeding ly handsome. The various specimens arc from noted localities in Colorado, and are beautiful and very effectively arranged. Each is labelled, aud a card is shown which gives the names of the localities where the minerals are found. , I I Under Sheriff. Mr. John T. Jefferis having resigned his position as Under Sheriff of Lewis and Clarke county to accept an appointment as guard at the U. S. Penitentiary at I)eer Lodge, Sheriff' Jefferis has appointed Mr. William A. Rum soy to succeed him. Mr. Rumsey is a Mon tana pioneer and a very public spirited and discerning citizen. His fitness for the posi tion to which he has lieeu promoted has been lull v proven, aud tiu; selection will lie learned day with pa Wl with general satisfaction. Patents.

The Vet lotest one Journal states that Messrs. Myers & Russell are slaughtering beef cattle at their slaughter house ou a grand scale. From forty to sixty thousand pounds are shipped weekly to points on the Northern Pacific line. Mr. Russell states that he does \ not ship much of this meat to St. Paul, but disposes of it this side, as he can get higher prices than he can in either Chicago and St. Paul. Tuesday he will ship fifty thousand pounds more. Not a bod showing tor Miles City. I I ! From the Dailv Herald of February 2S. ' THE KILLING OF FERRIS. * Examination and Acquittal of Burns Smith. [special to the herald.] Junction* CITY, M. T., February 27, '82. The examination of Burns Smith for the killing of Samuel Ferris was concluded last night. Justice Braden this morning, after reviewing all the evidence, promptly dis charged Smith. The testimony of some twenty witnesses was taken, aud without ex ception their evidence was that on the 21st of February Ferris, in pursuance of threats, went to Smith's place of business and without a moment's warning commenced shooting at Smith, tiring five shots, and was in the act of shooting again when Smith seized his gun and fired at Ferris, killing , him instantly. Sam Ferris was a notoriously had character, having already killed his man. The decision of the court was re I ceived with applause and gives general satis-, faction. S. WILDEN. Frozen. A special dispatch from Miles ( ity to tlu* Bismarck Tribune dated the 18th inst., gives an account of what befell C. K. Thinker, Superintendent of the Bozeman stage line, during the recent severe* cold weather that visited the Territory. He was brought to Miles City with hands aud feet frozen. When taken into Dr. Lcbscher's office an eye wit- ness says the fingers, when coming in con- tact with another, produced a sound similar to that of the friction of dry hones. The evening he met with so painful cu accident is said to have been bitterly cold aud ac- companied by a blizzard. Thurker wandered out to the company's stable, and while en- deavoring to unlock the door, lie lost the key in the snow, and soon after was found with the above result. Dr. Lebcher hopes to save the right hand, hut entertains grave fears for the left. The hands and feet have turned black. Mr. Thurker has been employed by Gilmer, Salisbury & Co. for the past fifteen years in this capacity. He is a genial person of some forty years, and a universal favorite. -fe- -♦* A Pleasant Evening. Last evening the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Chris. Kenck. on Benton avenue, was the scene of a very pleasant event. Yesterday being Mr. Keuck's birthday, tlu* Harmonia Gesang Verein, of which by the way he is a member, called at his residence about nine o'clock last night and gave him a beautiful serenade. Iu the meantime the neighbors and friends of Mr. and Mrs. Kenck had gath- ered at a neighboring residence, and starting out formed into line and called on Mr. and Mrs. Kenck. It was a genuiue surprise, and the guests were received in the most cordial | . I ; manner. There were congratulations to be . , ,, .. mi „ ,.i„„ „«a heard on all sides. 1 he place was cleared and then dancing was started and heartily enjoyed. At 12 o'clock, the supper, which the party had brought along with them, was served, after which dancing was resumed until the early hours of morning. There were nearly one hundred persons present, and all entered into the spirit of the occa sion with zest. Every one seemed to enjoy the evening very much, aud pronounced it one of thè pleasantest surprise parties they had ever attended. The Electric Light. ..., , , . l, C. C. Ruthrautl has secured nearly enough j th e I electric light suliscriptious to warrant formation of a company and expects to get the remainder needed this week. A. list ol I users will be published in a day or two, from which it will lie seen that our most en terprisiug aud public-spirited merchants are • lending their encouragement to this progrès sivc enterprise. Many ot our merchants re- ■ turning from the hast speak very enthusias- j tically of the new and brilliant illuminant. ; Bobbed in Chicago.

Weeksville [Missouliaii.j is situated near the river in the city, at I ! a : body of line timlier, and M'hen the supply ol ; logs in the immediate neighborhood gives out. they can be floated right to the locality I down the Missoula and Pen d'Oreille rivers. ; P Edilv, Hammond & Co. have put up a saw-mill, mess-lionse, bunk-liouse. (or lodg- ! ing room) stable, accommodating about 20 ! liorses. and a store, iu which is a first rate ! variety of «-owls suitable to the M anta of the neighborhood.

In ine miu P 1Tn * ... this vicinity about seventy-tne men are .u work, clearing right of way, working at saw ; of mill, making ties, getting ont logs, etc. This j number will he rapidly increased. Henry j Hammond has a contract to clear twenty eight miles of the route, and is rapidly push ing his work. From Missoula to Weeksville, and in fact, to Thompson's Falls, sixteen miles further down the river, there is a Rood j wagon road. The route is passible for teams four or five miles farther down, but beyond that only a pack trail is found. The North ern Pacific Co-, however, have bridged the worst streams, and the saddle trail is consid ered to be in No. 1 order. Travel over this route daring the coming season will be very heavy, and is increasing daily. From the Dailv Herald of March 1. An Appeal for the Victims. The records of the Police Court, before which our neighbor of the Independent dances attendance with provoking frequency, show that he again escapes punishment other than that administered in his bar-room broil. The duns of Mr. Ja mason may have been pushed with over-much uigency, but the public judgment will consider them justified in view of the dis- | reputable means employed to evade the pay- ment of a just and long awaited debt. The words of Neil Sullivan linger in the . memory of men to be repeated again and again from the lips of citizens I whose misfortunes have placed them ; in the grip of one whose greed for gain has made usury seem respectable, and whose heartless confiscations of others prop erty have placed larceuy and robbery iu the calendar of petit crimes. The wrecked es tates of the old Gazette, of the St. Louis Hotel, ol' James W. Whitlatcli, and others, together with the vulture like raid upon the Park Ditch property, of equal notoriety, are matters fresh iu the minds of our people and will not down in the time of one generation. If there is repenteuee in the heart of our neighbor for the misery and woe many have suffered that he might thrive and fatten, the time has come when he should show it. Restitution to those who have been defrauded, and settlement with those whose hard-earned wages have long been due, should be commenced now and carried to their con clusion. A clear, restful conscience is worth all the sacrifices demanded of our neiglilior. Let tiie wronged properties return to their rightful owners ; let honest debts be paid ; let laborers have their toiled for hire. Make a sign, neighbor, that you will repent, will dis gorge, and show to the world what good can sometimes come out of an "awful example." -------- For Florida. Mr. Leslie N. Wilkie, who took his de parture this morning, proceeds to Florida to occupy a position tendered him by one of the leading railroad companies of that State. Mr. Wilkie has resided here for the past eight years, and for tin* past four years has hehl the responsible post of Chief Clerk in tlu* office of the Surveyor General of Mon tana. His resignation was a surprise to Gen. Harris, who expressed regret at parting with the services of Mr. Wilkie. With many friends the Hkuald wishes Mr. W. success in the new field to which 4lis talents have called him. It is understood that the gen tleman who will be called to tlu* vacancy created by Mr. Leslie's retirement, will be named in a few days.
