Masonic Items. In the death of 1*. G. M. James M. luwrv Masonry in Mississippi loses one of *s brightest lights and ornaments. He has been in acthe service for more than lift y years, and has worked on every part f the mystic temple. He not only under wood the law and usages of the craft, but what is more rare and difficult, he illus trated its best teachings and tenets in his daily life. His death occurred, at Oxford, Miss., April 15th. The craft universal will rejoice to know that the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts has paid off the last dollar of its temple lebt and lifted the mortgage that has over -hadowed it lor many years. Grand Mas ter Lawrence devoted three years of hard work to accomplish the task. Without stopping to rest the work of raising a $50, "00 charity fund was begun at once. It is proposed by the trustees of the new temple to be erected in Helena to pro vide a handsome room for the Grand Lodge library of Montana. It will furnish plenty of reading for the Helena craftsmen, and will repay them for providing it per manent quarters. Iowa, has through the zealous services of !".ro. T. S. Parvin, who made Helena a visit last season, the largest and most valuable Masonic library in the world. Though the jurisdiction has not a temple, it proposes to have a library building. Haviug invited competition of the several localities that would do most to secure its location, Cedar Ifitpids won the prize and the corner stone of the building was laid May 7th. .Montana Racers. During the first week of the race meet ing at Louisville, Kentucky, the Montana horses held their own with the States cracks, getting a place in every race they ran in but one. Honnie Australian was third in his first ra< e, second in the next—a mile and one furlong—won by old Hickory Jim ; third in the next. Gilt only took part in one race—three quarters of a mile—which she won by half a head in 1:17. Hickory Jim took part in three races, be ing unplaced in one and winning the mile and a furlong in *2.04, and the mile dash in 1.451. At Sherman, Texas. Thady ran second in a mile dash iu 1:47. In San Francisco, the old Montana horses Premium and Joe Howell ran in two races, the mare winning l*oth with Joe Howell second. The first was a three-quarter dash !lin in 1.21, and the other was three-qnar ter heats, in 1.17}, 1.17}. 1 he twenty years of Montana's history " hich has Iceen recorded up to the 24th 'nst., the twentieth anniversary of her ex igence as a Territory, contain accounts tf more startling scenes of eventful history 'men attach to any country embraced with ln ,he limits of the United States.

We Rear the Palm. In this morning's Independent , under the head of "Montana Matters," there is a clipping from a Butte paper, which says, "Last week Butte shipped $70,000 worth of bullion." We call attention to the state ment to say that heretofore we have been willing to concede the palm to Butte in the value of silver bullion shipped from time to time from that city. But now the pro duct of silver from the Helena district has attained such proportions as shown from the shipments for the same week that we feel justified in claiming that the honors are a little more than easy in favor of Helena. Unless the Silver City on the west side includes copper in the value of weekly shipments, hereafter the palm will have to be conceded to Helena. The following is last week's silver pro duct shipped through the Helena banks: First National Bank from the Helena Min ing & Reduction Works...........................962.500 Boston <k Montana Mining Company......... 11,200 Consolidated Gregory................................. 12,500 Elk Horn..................................................... 9,300 Merchants National Bank from the Drum Lummon.................................................. 32,000 Total...................................................9127,500 w 4>s «X f.og* #1©V W&'j? X<<v Hmn the Dativ Herald of May 28. Pardon Granted. _ John S. Tooker, Secretary and Acting Governor of Montana, this morning par doned one. John Davit, upon a petition signed by John Coburn, one of the Asso ciate Judge» of the Supreme Court, and Andrew F. Burleigh, jr., District Attorney for Yellowstone county, and others who represented that the prisoner was utterly ignorant of the law which he in .dvertant ly violated, and had a wife and four or five children depending on him for support, and that while lying iu jail he would he help less to take any care of. The petition was acted on promptly by Governor Tooker, and the pardon takes effect front to-day. It appears that in the fall of 1883 John Davit brought into Billings and sold the meat of two beef cattle, and did not exhibit the hides of the animals slaughtered, as required by the law approved March 3, 1883. For violat ing this law he was caused to he arrested by a butcher living in Billings. He was arraigned and tried in a justice court from which judgment he appealed and gave bonds to stay execution, during pendency of appeal on the 13th of April, 1884, his bondsmen released him, and in default of bail he was lodged in jail till the meeting of the last term of the District Court in Yellowstone county. When brought for trial he pleaded guilty and was fined $10 and costs of suit, which amounted to over $200, and was remanded to prison for de fault. We Are Reminded. We are reminded, and we wish to re- mind the Independent, that there is a here- after, and that the fate of Annanias and Saphira should always be before the eyes of those who tell lies. The article this morning in the Independent charging the Herald with copying the building report published last Sunday is an umitigated whopper. The Herald reporter spent Friday and Saturday last visiting the buildings under construction on every street in the city, and at the depot, and what is more, the Herald's report embraced buildings entirely overlooked in the Inde- pendent. What will the people say to such a report which ignores such a prominent public building as St. John's Hospital, Hugh Kirkendall's warehouse, and An- thony Dougherty's dwelling? The Inde- pendent has given itself away entirely this time, and should shut up about stealing items, etc. - - » ♦-- Real Estate Sale. Messrs. Chessman & Davis have sold to Mrs. Ellen Murphy lots 5 and 6, block 27, Central Addition. Consideration, $700. This property lies on the east side of North Rodney street, and is 50x142 feet, where the material is already being delivered for a brick veneer residence. Messrs. Chessman & Davis have also sold to Henry Yergy, administrator of the Rod dy estate, lots 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 in block 35, Central Addition. Consideration, $800 This property is on North Warren street, 125x118 feet, where a handsome brick resi dence, to cost $3,500 to $4,000 will be erect- at once. The Christian Church. One of the principal improvements in Helena, the Christian church, being built on the West Side, was inadvertantly left out of our published list of bnildings now under construction. It will be one of the improvements of the year that we may be justly proud of. It will be a large and costly structure, which is progressing finely under the supervision and untiring efforts of the pastor, Rev. M. L. Streator. The chnrch is being bnilt on the west side of Benton avenue and will have an east ern frontage of 42 feet, running back 84 feet, where there is to be an addition built hereafter. The height of the audience room will be 28 feet, with an area of 38x60 feet. The building will be of beautiful native rock, with buttresses, corners, jams, and arches of doors and windows will be of a finely colored porphyritic con glomerate. from the quarry of Michael Coroet, near Helena. The water-table, string courses, taps and sills will be of cat granite. The style of architecture, gothic, ahd when completed will be one of the fine public bnildings of Helena. Benton Coach Held Up. The Benton coach whieh left Helena this morning was held up in the cafioo just below Mitchell's ranch. The passen gers were robbed and all valuables taken. F. G. Cooper was aboard. Loss by Fire. Manlove, a ranchman J. H. Manlove, a raneüman in Prickly Pear valley, about five miles from Helena, had his residence destroyed by fire on Sunday night, together with all its con tents, the members of the family escaping with only a part of their clothes. It appears that Mrs. Manlove and one of the boys were about the same time, shortly after 12 o'clock on Sunday night, and dis covered the inside of the house, which was lined with cotton cloth, to be on tire. By giving the alarm and by active work the family were rescued from the liâmes, ,/hieli in a few minutes more would have pre vented escape and enveloped several of the children. Mrs. Manlove escaped without a dress, and Mr. Manlove only had time to grab his pants. Everything was consumed beds, bedding, clothing, fur niture, including a sewing machine, a valuable case of prepared birds that had been exhibited at the Territorial Fair. The loss falls heavily upon this most estimable family, and such a tire is no ordinary one when it sets a whole family out in the world with scarcely anything to begin life anew. As a taxidermist Mrs. Manlove has a particular talent, and has no superior in this artistic business in the Mountains. She was in the city yester day and so exceedingly reticent was she over her severe loss, lest her intimate friends would cousider the family deserv ing of their charity, she scarcely said a word about the calamity. The situation is even worse than her friends iu the city would suppose, who, if they were burned out, would have a shelter to tiy to and near neighbors to supply im mediate wants that money cannot get quick enough. We have not learned the par ticulars of the origin of the tire. The Rain. the The weather turned quite cool yesterday iu the afternoon, and the clouds that had so often gathered and dispersed in vain parade began to assume more of a business aspect. Old Boreas rushed around through the streets picking up all the loose dust to he found, sifting it into houses that had just lieen cleaned and on to those just painted, or into any open-eyed wayfarer that couldn't help going on the street. But old Boreas has before given some false alarms, and we did not take his announce ment without some discount. Those who woke this morning and were greeted with the gentle patter of the rain upon the roof or at the window sought the shelter of their coverlids for another nap with more satisfation than they have felt for weeks. It was getting to be unually dry even for this country. The springs, streams and wells were all getting prematurely dry, where not immediately connected with the snow hanks of the higher ranges. The yards in town were suffering, and it seemed as if the fruit trees would be blast ed while in bloom. On the east side of town the water company's pipes have been dry for days together. Thanks be given for a'good, refreshing rainfall and promise of more. The grass has been hesitating for a long time whether to come forth or not. We may now look for every hill top and side to don its green jacket and show some of the new comers from the East that verdnre is not an im possibility in Montana. A Nuisance. We have several of them, but we only purpose at present to speak of one, the throwing of papers into the streets to be wafted by every breeze into the yards and along the fences, and by the sidewalks, very sensibly disfiguring the appearance and entailing a daily task on every one who desires his premises and surroundings to look decent, of gathering them up and putting them into the fire where they should have been placed at first. In look ing over the miscellaneous lot that a lively breeze will huddle together in a favorable nook in any single half day, is to be dis covered in a goodly proportion the rem nants of posters that have for a time adorned several of the large show boards in varions parts of the city. Old bills are torn down to give place to new ones, and the torn tragments are left to fly around our streets, scare horses, and defile with their unsightly appearance all our public ways and private yards. It is a nuisance which should be abated, and we call upon our city officials to enforce the ordinance that prohibits the throwing of such stuff into the streets. These papers can just as well be destroyed in the first place and by the ones that make such litter, as to be wafted all over the city and then devolve the duty upon innocent third parties who gather them up and destroy them when they can stand it no longer. A Territorial farmer wanted to get a couple of shingles tacked over a leaky place in the roof, but no one dared to try it, the roof was so steep. That very day the farmer's daughter came home from boarding school, and did the job before she sat down to supper. She said she was used to crawling over steep roofs. It was the only way the girls could get out after j 9 o'clock. j ' PERSONAL. Hel —A. J. Davis, of Butte, arrived in ena yesterday. —Mr. and Mrs. Geo.

Mr. Fisk is accompanied by his daughter, Miss Grace, and Master Clark, who will visit their grand parents iu Connecticut. Extending Upper Main Street. Before attention Ls altogether diverted from the upper end where the past life of Helena has chiefly been spent, would it not be well to do one thing more before leaving it to its final fate in taking care of itself, and that is open up Main street through to the foundry. It will cost but little and that can be made up on the ground. It will reduce the risk from fire. It will give an open way for the water in time of flood and a way to run the great flume that is to serve for the main sewer, and which on both accounts should be extended this very season through the two blocks that are in constant peril Without it. HORSES IN MONTANA. What the "Spirit of the Times" Says About Onr Bracing Atmosphere. The desirability of Montana as a breeding section is fast Incoming appreciated by the horsemen and cattle breeders who have visited it and seen for themselves. Gov ernor Schuyler Crosby has written to his friend, Mr. Pierre Lorillard, suggesting to him the propriety of sending a dozea or so of his yearlings to Montana as an experi ment, believing firmly that the result would be its repetition. He suggests that they be turned out for the summer on one of the mountain ranges, where the pasture is equal to any to be found in the world. Moreover, the climate is salubrious, the altitude being some 5,000 feet. Now, it is an accepted fact that atmospheric currents carry fertility. A learned authority has oliserved that the air is an inexhaustible source, whence .ill that lives draws its ex istence—an immense reservoir, into which all that dies pou s its last breath. Under j the action of the atmosphere all the scat- j t«red organisms are born and perish. Life ' and death are equally in the air which we ! breathe, and perpetually succeed each ! other by the exchange of gaseous particles. The breeze which gently caresses the stem of plants is further on transformed into the.tempest, uproots large trees, and de stroys ships with all their crews. Now, in view of the effects of atmosphere, it may be taken that air like that of the mountain ranges of Montana, which is strongly im pregnated with ozone, is singularly bracing and elastic ; it imparts vigor, and animals, as well as people raised there will be dis tinguished for high courage and health, It is the logic of statistics that the people of all high altitudes not only enjoy a greater percentage of longevity, bat the death rate is lass. No animal is more sns ceptible to bronchial or pulmonary troubles than the race-horse, and much of this can be traced to the atmospheric changes and peculiar conditions incident to the localities in which they are bred. "Roarers" are al most unknown .in California, and the supe riority of the climate of the mountain ranges of Montana over that of California should render that ailment an unknown quantity. In short, there is no section of the American continent where the thor oughbred hone can be produced so cheaply and in a higher state of perfection. The peculiar advantages of Montana as a stock breeding section are already mak ing themselves felt. Several Montana-bred horses have raced in California with mark ed success, and N. Armstrong, the well known turfman, has recently purchased the once famous race horse, Tom Bowling, sire of Gen. Monroe, and taken him to his stud in Beaverhead county, where, with proper opportunities, he will be certain to gather new laurels. In fact, the advantages of climate, pasturage, and the cheapness of land are beginning to attract general at tention toward Montana as the coming breeding section of America, and the day is not far distant when it will rival the wolds of old Yorkshire and the Blue Grass region of Kentucky in the fame and cele brity of its race horses. Horse Association. New York, May 27 —The second an nual meeting of .the National Horse Show Association opened to day in Madison Square Garden. The prize for stallions four years old and over was awarded to Stylites, imported bay, sixteen hands, eight years old, owned by the Earl of Ayles ford, Packenton Hall, Coventry, England. Linden Tree, imported from the St. Al bans stables, and owned by U. S. Grant, was awarded the second prize. She stal lion Volunteer, thirty years old, was de clared the winner of the first prize offered for trotters for stallions fifteen years old and over. TOWN AND TEBRIT0RY. The will of the late Daniel W. Curtis was yesterday admitted to probate, anti A. E. Bunker qualified as executor under the will. L. N. Smith, Police Magistrate of the city, has opened a new office iu the Capitol block, where he administers municipal and civil justice. Judge John W. Eddy has removed his office to his new quarters in the Capitol block, up stairs, where he hangs out his ! shingle as Notary aud General Land Office business. The seven silver bricks from the Drum | Lummon mine, shipped by the Merchants National Bank, were healthy looking specimens of building material. Their value is $32,000. The authorship of the anonymous novel "Tajan," recently begun iu the Manhattan i Matjazine, is attributed to a Montana lady, who has contributed in a literary* way to one or more of the Territorial papers. Mrs. A. Manlove requests us to say that the fire which destroyed her residence iu the Prickly Pear valley* on Sunday night last also destroyed the articles left there by other people to be worked up, and are a total loss. At the round-up rendezvous, Northern ; Lewis and Clarke, on Monday last, Thomas Pembrim, jr., was thrown from a vicious broncho and had a shoulder fractured. The young man's father, Thomas Pembrim, Captain of the Teton boys, also met with a painful accident the same day, having got caught in a rope which came nearly pull- \ ing his scalp oil', as well as one of his arms. I River Press: Besides the large quantity ! of bullion in transit and already shipped j down the river there are now 4,000 bars, or 400,000 pounds at Clendenin awaiting ship ment. Between 25,000 and 30,000 pounds j of bullion are turned out daily by the | smelter, so it will be seen the business of the camp is assuming pretty big propor tions. The transportation of the bullion to this city will lie «juite an item and will give employment to a good many bull | trains. Stoddard's map of Helena, now about j completed and ready for lithographing, is j a fine piece of drafting, presenting the i city with all the additions in distinct plats, i with names of streets, avenues, etc. The map shows that all the additions are 1 within the city limits aud embraced within the three miles s«]uare, except the City Pakr Addition, which lies outside on the east.
