Effects of a Cloud Burst on the Head» Waters of the Prickly Pear, on Saturday—Three China men Drowned. At Corbin, on the Wickes branch of the Northern Pacific railroad, 24 miles from Helena, there was a great flood in the Prickly Pear. which washed away two cabins ami drowned three Chinamen. A telephone report ol the disaster received this morning from Corbin says that at about 5 o'clock on Saturday afternoon a violent flood was produced by a heavy rainfall or cloud-burst, which carried away twocabins, one of w hich was occupied as a Chinese wash-house. The flood came so suddenly, aud with such force as to carry the house down the stream with the Chinamen in it, three of whom were drowned,*one of whom had his head severed from his body by the violence of the flood. The names of the Chinamen are: Ya Louie, Hay AVahand Lee Dew— aged about 40, 32 and 30, re spectively. The waters overran the whole width of the valley, where in some places it ran six feet deep. The railroad at the crossing of the stream was for a while un der water but came out all right. The whole damage done will probably lie about two hundred dollars. Chinese Funeral. The City Marshal was waited on this morning by some of the head Chinamen of Helena for permission to bury the Celestials drowned at Corbin ou Saturday, according to some fraternity rites of an order exist exhibitions of colored lights, A large space iu the middle of the street near to the shacks of the dead Chinamen was occupied by the funeral rites of some secret order, where some thirty or more participated, all dressed in white and color ed overshirts, carrying flags, transparencies aud banners. Two large tables were spread in the street and loaded with roasted hog, a dressed kid and a variety of sweet meats and table ornaments. Around this festive Imard the knights of the flowery kingdom marched and countermarched, knelt, ing and practised among them. The per mission was granted, and accordingly a genuine Celestial funeral was witnessed this afternoon of two of the victims of the floodj The funeral rites were begun at 2 o'clock in Chinatown with the firing of liombs and prayed and sang. The remains, already caftined iu two coffins, were placed in a hearse and a wagon, headed by the Turn verein Band, and followed by a wagon loaded with tea, rice and other eatables, to be laid on the graves, and a large number of members of the secret society and many Chinamen on foot. The officers car ried flags and banners in high colors, and the uniformed carried colored cottou eni blems. The Chinaman drowned and not a member of this rite was buried at Helena this morning. Sunday Evening's Union Meeting. The union meeting which was held at the Grand street church Sunday evening by the congregations of the Presbyterian, Baptist, Methodist, Congregational, and Christian churches was addressed by Bev L. L. Wood, pastor of the Baptist church, who has just returned from the, East, Mr. Wood was Montana's representativa at the International Sunday School Convention which was held in Louisville on the 11th, 12th and 13th of this month. The meet- ! ing was held to hear the report of the dele- j gate aud to be informed of the proceedings j of the International Sunday School Con- ! vention. The address of the Rev. Wood , was full of interest aud important facts. St. Vincent's Academy. The closing exercises of the scholastic year of St. Vincent's Academy will take place on Thursday evening, the 26th inst., at 7:30 o'clock. Invitations can only lie j exteuded, for want of accommodations, to t the friends aud patrons of the institution.

The Blaine boys at Marysville scooped the Dark Horses of the same place on last Sunday to the tune of fifteen to twelve, as will be seen by the following report of the game : Marysville, M. T.. June 22, 1884. To tbe Editor of the Herald. About 200 boys and a lev. gills witnessed a game of base ball to-day on the grounds north of town, between the Marysville clubs. The following is the score with the names of the respective nines : BLAINES'. Ralston, Barnes. Abracrumby, K, van, Crawly, McKilligan. Johnson, hal, Clarke, Foster.—15. PARK HORSES. T.

Y«urs respectfnlly^ Branding on the Bound-Up. » Regarding the Musselshell round-np we 1 find an interesting account in the Husband- ! man, from w hich we clip a portion as fol- | lows: "The round-up lives well. It con sûmes a beef a day and other supplies in proportion. This is paid for out ot the fund resulting from the saleot 'mavericks,' which sums up to from five to seven thous and dollars per annum. The expense ot building corrals, which amounts to over $2,000 per annum, and the salary ol the captain, which is $5 per day, is also paid out of this fund. The 'mavericks are sold to the highest bidder. They are yearlings and bring from $22 to $25 per head. It was a grand sight, eveu to one acquainted with range life, to see an army of cowboys, with Ille, lO See UU Umijr ui w*» wjo, " l ehapps, revolversand spurs,with their broad brimmed hats waving in the dashed to and iro, cutting out, corralmg, ruping aud brauding. They had a cart i oad of branding irons, and the rapidity j with which the branding and knifing was done was truly wonderful. The scene would make our humanitarian friends ot j the east shudder. Wattles were cut in a variety of ways; in the brisket, on the jaw, on tlit* nose under the ihw. <md ou eituer lt . g . The ^ ping and snubbing was done ou horseback, aud grown cattle were thrown , and held with as much ease as calves." From the Dailv Herald of June 24. Address of Welcome. Pursuant to arrangements made by the committee the following address and testi monial were presented by T. H. Carter in behalf of the Catholic congregation to the Right Hev. J. B. Brondel, Bishop of Helena, at the Episcopal residence, in the presence of a large number of people to-day at half past 2 o'clock. Helena, M. T. June 24, 1884. Rigid Rev. J. B. Brondel, Bi*hyp of Helena : Esteemed and Venerable Sir: As a committee selected by the Catholic con gregation of Helena, we humbly assume the pleasant duty of bearing testimony to your lordship of the great veneration and profound respect in which the members of the congregation hold your exalted spiritual position, and their sense of grati tude for the conspicuous favor shown the congregation in the selection of Helena as your lordship's Episcopal See. In making this presentation in behalt of the congre gation, w T e desire to express our thankful ness to God for the great blessing bestowed on this Territory in the creation of the Diocese of Helena, and our deep feelings of gratitude to the Holy Father Pope Leo XIII. for his kind consideration and pa ternal solicitude for our spiritual welfare. We further and particularly desire to formally bid your lordship welcome to Helena, and to express the cordial apprecia tion and affectionate regard the congrega tion entertains for your lordship's distin guished atributes. We but voice the con victions of the entire people in saying that your pious example, dignified, prudent and wise course of action during your residence in Helena have elicited the profound re spect and admiration of all citizens of the community, to the signal benefit ol the church, and that in the hearts ol the members of this congregation your lordship has se cured abiding confidence, veneration and love. Actuated by a desire to give some substantial expression to these existing sentiments, we most respectfully tender your lordship the enclosed certificate ol deposit, and beg you to accept it as a dona tion from the Cathedral congregation, ac companied as it is, with their fervent prayers for your preservation and continu ance in the enjoyment of good health. (Signed) Congregation of the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart. After the reading of the address by T. H. Carter, which was done in a most im pressive manner, the address, which had been handsomely enrolled upou indestructi ble paper, was handed to the Bishop, to which was attached the certificate ot de posit together with the paper containing the list of subscribers. The address w as heartily applauded. The Bishop, who was surrounded by the thirteeu clergymen who had come to Helena to participate iu the diocesan synod, and while standing on the portico of bis residence, spoke in a loud, clear voice his grateful thanks to the congrega tion, who had mostly congregated around the impressive scene to honor the occasion. The ladies and gentlemen present were at tentive listeners to the beautiful address and to the pathetic and heartfelt speech of the Bishop, who grew more than eloquent when he alluded to the expressions of af fectionate regard with which the congre gation of the Cathedral had welcomed their first resident Bishop to Helena. His lord ship then proclaiming his own unworthi ness and asking the blessing of God upon his well intended exertions for the suc cessful discharge of his duties as Bishop of the great Diocese of Montana which he looked upou as his home and which, through the blessing of God he prayed would be his resting place until he passed to his reward in another world. He alluded then in feeling terms to the character of the people of Montana, which had been given to him by the then Arch Bishop Segers, of the Arch Episcopal See of Oregon, and now Arch Bishop ot Alaska, which he said warmed his heart to the people of Montana before he sawg them. The Bishop's speech was warm, affectionate and well timed in reply to the address, to which he alluded in most grateful terms. At the conclusion the speech was heartily applauded. LAYING THE CORNER STONE. The Bishop then invited the assemblage to the laying of the corner stone of St. John's Hospital, and requested the congregation to repair to the church. The whole assembly, after being seated, witnessed the formation of the procession which started at the altar headed first by the young ladies Sodality carrying their banner, followed by the boys' Sodality with banner, then by the Catholic Knights in regalia, and then by the sanctuary boys bearing the cross followed by the rev erend demy. Bishop and attendants, and last by the congregation, who walked with uncovered heads behind tbe Bishop from the church to the grand platform arranged convenient to the corner stone, which was poised under block and tackle ready to be laid by the Bishop, assisted by the builder, Mr. C. Monsbauson. The corner stone was a finely chisseled granite block containing tbe inscription in gilt letters "St. John's Hos pital, 1884. W. Sweeney, Architect." At the forming of the line of the procession in the church, the priests all chanted the Litnay of the Saints, while the procession moved to the place of laying the corner stone. Here the societies formed in line while the priests and Bishop filed past. The priests walked up the elegantly carpeted steps to the plat form, which was provided with chairs and surrounded by a railing covered with ever greens, ornamented with natural flowers. After the chanting was ended the Bishop pronounced the benediction npon the work and proceeded to bless the stone and the building by sprinkling and prayers, using the impressive ceremonies of the church on such occasions. All things worked smoothly, and in a few minutes the corner stone of St. John's Hospital was laid, to stand, let us hope, for ages upon ages. Within the block of granite were deposited the Helena Daily and Weekly Herald of the latest issue, copies of the Independent, and other ar ticles of historic significance. These ceremonies make this an eventful day in Helena, whose anniversary will be hereafter hailed by the Catholics of the City with retpect and interest. I From the Dailv Herald of June 25. Closing Ceremonies. When the ceremonies of laying the cor ner stone of St. John's Hospital were con cluded yesterday, a shower of rain very fortunately drove the assemblage into the cathedral, where they could more com fortably and distinctly hear the eloquent remarks of Bishop Brondel on the founda tion. history and usefulness of St. John's Hospital of Helena, which had so signally prospered under the fostering care of the Sisters of Charity, who had labored in season and out of season, nursing and waiting around the beds of sickness and death for fourteen years without money and without price, and for no other com pensation than that heavenly reward promised for the good works of the faith ful servant. The very eloquent address upon laying the corner stone, delivered in the cathedral, was almost breathlessly lis tened to by a large and attentive audience, who completely tilled the building. We regret that want of space prevents giving the discourse in full. But it was a happy ending to the proceedings of an eventful day that will form an important chapter in the history of the Catholic church in Montana. Electric Light Station. A visit to the Electric Light station this morning by a Herald reporter was well repaid by a pleasant interview with the po lite and gentlemanly operators Mr. H. M. Ogden, electrician, and Arthur A. Lareau, engineer, whose duties are distinct and sep arat, and which require theabilities of com jietent and skilled artists. Mr. Lareau has in charge the two mammoth boilers and two 50-horse power Westinghouse en gines which occupy the lower floor of the station, and which this morning looked so bright and clean that no one would sup pose that one of them had kept up its ceaseless power during the long hours of last night. Mr. Lareau has charge also of the special engine that supplies the lioilers with hot water and which is always in readiness day and night as a fire engine to extinguish fires in the building itself or in the surrounding buildings 300 feet away. From this engine a stand-pipe goes to the roof of the lighting station filled with water which can be tapped at hose-openings at four places, or at every floor, in ease of fire. A hose reel ^containing 300 feet of hose stands inside the door which can lie put in operation in a minute for use with a heavy force of water. Only one of the W esting house engines is run at a time—generally that one named "General William," which is on regular duty, keeping "Captain Mo ses" for a reserve in case of accident or when repairs are needed. The furnaces are so arranged as to hold fire all day, so that in 20 minutes steam can be turned on and the whole machinery set iu motion in that short space of time. Mr, Ogden, the elec trician, is authority for the information that at the first turn of the wheel elec tricity is generated and sent along the cir cuits, two of which are established in Hel ena—on« for mercantile and business houses which put out their lights at 10 o'clock— and the other for hotels, restaurants, sa loons, etc., which run all night. He in forms our reporter that thî electric lamps in tbe streets and throughout the city and used within doors are so ad justed that they are completely under the control of the party using them, and can be extinguished as easily as turniug off gas jets. The present capacity of the lighting station, with two Dynamos,is for 135 lights. The lamps in use in Helena number 70 at the present time. A third Dynamo is held in reserve, and when that is required at this station, it will be the most exten sive electric light plant this side of Den ver. Around the premises, in the engine and boiler rooms, on the lower fioor, and in the dynamo room, up-stairs, everything seems to be in the neatest order and in readiness on the shortest notice, kept so by the present polite and efficient opera tors. Montana Strawberries. Now is the season of our great content, when the fresh, rare-ripe, luscious straw berries, flavored with tbe dews of heaven, as dispensed in the Rocky Mountains, sup ply our market and adorn our tables. The finest specimens of this noble fruit yet ex hibited in Helena, and raised this year in Montana, are those from the McMillen ranch, six miles from Helena, and culti vated by H. F. Lidolph, of the Wilson variety. Mr. Lidolph presented a beauti ful basket of these fine berries to the Herald office this morning, which for color, size and flavor are very hard to beat. They are real beauties, and have been much admired in the Herald window, where they have been viewed by the many passers by. Last Saturday's Flood. The flood which struck the headwaters of the Prickly Pear at Corbin and Jeffer son City by a clond burst last Saturday, an account of which was published in Mon day's Herald, seems to have been but a part of a great body of water that fell on the Alta divide and rushed down with destructive force on both uides ot the mountain. We learn that the Hood, which was so disastrous to life and property at Corbin, did considerable dam age in the valley on the west side, where the Gregory smelters are located. The damage at Gregory was sufficient to cause the shutting down of the works, and to I move several buildings from their founda tions in that vicinity. Burglaries are frequent in Missoula, as well as other towns in the Territory, of late. On Sunday the residence of Captain Higgins was entered and a watch and other articles taken. On the same night a thief went through a number of rooms at the Rodgers House, taking $60 from the pants pocket of J. P. Smith. He entered Capt. Rodgers room by turning the key, which was in the lock on the inside, with tweezers. After rummaging around the bureau drawers he found about $10, and then going through several other rooms and making a general clean-np, he left un molested. : j ; j ' j j TOWN ANDTEBBITOBY. Missoula has arranged a fine pro gramme for the Fourth. Albert Myers was robbed of over $100 at Thompson Falls last week. The Glendive Times will begin the pub lication of a daily about July 1st.

Phil Sheuou purchased the fine ran.ch of Pat Holdhan, on Horse Prairie paying therefor $7,000. Wm. Ulm, of Sun River, yesterday brought in 10,000 pounds of wool, a part, only, of his season's clip. The arrangements have been perfected for mustering in a Post of the Grand Army of the Republic at Dillon. Benton merchants report a healthy im provement in trade. They will do a good business during the wool season. Dennis O'Connor, a well known young man of Butte, committed suicide on Friday last by taking nine grains of morphine. The coach from Jefferson City to Butte, and connecting with the Helena and Jef ferson railroad, now goes through in one day. White Sulphur Springs is to have an ice cream saloon. How it will please the girls and how the boys pocket books will sul phur. The directors of the First National Bank of Miles City have appointed H. F. Batchelor cashier, R. E. Stower having re signed.

Almost every evening short distance races are run on the main street of that place. Hundley & Preuitt yesterday purchased the Breck & Tarie ton ranch in Prick ley Pear valley, containing 640 acres. Consid eration $10.000. On Tuesday last a little three-year-old daughter of P. Melin, who lives on the bank of the Yellowstone, near Livingston, was drowned in the river. Piatt & McComas have just received from the inanufaetury, a han dsome hearse costing $1,000 and a landau costing $1,400. They are determined to keep the lead in livery matters. Mrs. J. Murphy, of St. Louis, and a por tion of her family, prominent and wealthy people of that city, will arrive in Helena this week as the guests of their relatives, Mr. and Mrs. C. D. Curtis. The Sampson lead, at Neihart, has been bonded by the Hudson Mining Company. The Hudson company is getting hold of some good property, and is in a fair way to make a "big thing" at Neihart. No clue has yet been obtained as to the manner which Edmunds, the Utah and Northern brakeman, met his death. Whether he suicided, was assassinated, or accidentally shot, is a mystery. A grand dinner was given yesterday by the Sisters of St. John's Hospital to Bishop Brondel and the visiting clergymen, in the course of which short speeches were made by the reverend_gentlemen iu several languages. There are some fine ranges yet unoccu pied in the country north of the Yellow stone, between the Red and Musselshell rivers. These ranges have all the requis ites for stock, such as wood, water, good shelter and hay land. H. B. Wilkins, Jr., some weeks ago re signed the position of private secretary to the Governor for the reason that other business engagements required all ot his time. The Governor has accepted the resig nation, to take effect July 1st. The effects of Mann, the horse thief shot by the Madison county posse, consisting of a Winchester rifle, revolver, gold watch, schaps, etc., were appropriated by the Mormon authorities of the village, "to de fray the expenses of inquest, burial, etc." A man by the name of Thomas Norton was found dead in a cabin in the southern portion of Helena where he died as is sup posed from heart disease sometime during Sunday night. Norton was a waiter in the old St. Louis hotel iu the early days ol C. D. Sullivan. Wm. Woolsey has taken the contract for carrying the mail weekly from Livingston to Neihart, the original contractor having sublet it to him. It should be a matter of congratulation that Mr. Woolsey has taken the service, for it insures prompt carriage of the mails. The stock yards will be promptly re moved from Miles City to Terry unless some arrangement can be made by which Miles City can be reached by cattle drives without so much obstruction from fencing Efforts are being made to have them located on the Ft Keogh reservation. The summer meeting of the West Side Racing Association will take place at Bntte July 4th and 5th, at which time there will be some fine races, both in the trotting and running classes. There will also be a ben-mile race between two lady riders, who will change horses at the end of every mile. Enterprise : On Wednesday tbe boiler of Topliff's sawmill atStillwater exploded and seriously injured four men. A telegram received from Mr. Toplifl by Mr. McKee, of Livingston, gives the names of the in jured men as Joe, Adams, Rogers, aud Hat field. Mr. McKee knows only Rogers who was the engineer. The mill is situated about five miles north of Stillwater station. Its bc^er was of 20-horse power and must have exploded with terrific force. Livingston Enterprise : Last Friday evening a sudden gust of high wind sprang up at Cooke City, and as a man named Smith was passing through a back yard but a little removed from the main street, a tree was torn up by the roots, and, by a deplorable fatality, as it fell, struck him on the head, inflicting injuries of which he died in a few minutes. Mr. Smith was a man of about 35 years, had been some time in the camp and was in the employ of Postmaster Shoomaker. PEBS0NAL. — C. H.

Ricksburg, Idaho, where the Madison valley boys captured their men last week, is said to be one of the principal rendez vous of the worst gang of horse thieves in the mountains. The place is situated in the thinly settled portion of Oneida county, and in a region which alionnds in facilities for the concealment of stolen horses, the neighboring mountains abounding in natural parks, secluded from observation, and only accessible through narrow gorges, which are easily closed by short fences The June number of the West Shore, pub lished at Portland, Oregon, contains an unusually large amount of information of value to one desiring to know the condi tion of the industries and resources ol the Great West. A long and complete descrip tion of Seattle, the chief city on I'uget Sound, is the leading feature of the num ber, besides which is an exceedingly inter esting historical article on the T abulus Straits of Auian," and much other choice, original and selected matter. The illustra tions, of which there are twelve lull pages, besides a large three-page view of the city of Seattle, are excellent, and present scenes in and about that city. i j ; j , ' Shooting Match.

The range was 200 yards, and the match was to l»e shot off-hand on the Creedmoor target with 8-inch bull's eye, 10 shots each The wind was blowing strong from the front which made steady holding imjiossible.but the boys had to admire Jim's pluck in con testing against the champion, armed as he was with the best and latest improved Bal lard repeating rifle, with peep sights. The result of the shooting was discounted he fore the match, but Jim says he has paid over a hundred dollars before, aud for less information than he gained in this match.
