From the Dailv Herald of August .. ,.KN. »rlloriBLDHIHBLMA. Fir!*l Visit to Montana— " n four of the Military Division ot the Missouri. (ien. Schofield, commanding the military division of the Missouri, with head quarters at Chicago, accompaned by Mrs. Schofield and two of his stall, Maj. Sanger and Lieut. Schofield, arrived iu Helena Saturday and remained till this morning. This distinguished soldier is making an extended tour of observation through the largest and most important of the military divisions of the country—a division which contains about two-thirds of the army of the United States, and to which he was called upon the assumption by Gen. Sheri dan of the chief command. Gen. Schofield yesterday received many calls from citi zens of Helena at the International Hotel, I where he was quartered for the day, and was greeted among others by a number ot ex-soldiers who served under his command j during the late war The General reached j this point on his official jaunt >y "ay Denver and Salt Lake, traveling over the narrow guage roads to the intersection of the Great Northern Toroughfare at Garri son. From this latter point he went as far west as Fort Missoula, turning back from that post on Friday last. Depart ing from Helena this morning, he stops for a day at Fort Ellis, and proceeds then to the National Park, where a wee k or more will be spent in viewing the geysers, waterfalls, and other objects oi interest. The special car provided by the Northern Pacific takes the General and j party forward to Livingston and ofi' on the Park Branch to the termiuus. From Mam- j moth Hot Springs suitable military escort i md transportation have been provided, and j t h>' trip through Wonderland promises to ' be a specially enjoyable one. Lieut. Scho field, who in past years performed a good : deal of trooper campaigning in Montana in connection with the Second Cavalry, will be about a« b ,,>011 a K ui de as the party will want in their tour of sightseeing. He is l( uite familiar with the topography and trails of the Park, having been there on more occasions than due. A memorable reconnoisance was that of August, 1877, when this gall;- it young officer was dis patched with three troopers to learn and report the direction taken by Chief Joseph and braves in their hurried swing through the reserve following the battle of Big Hole. His erraud was bravely executed, and with it will lie recalled the rescue of the Carpenters, brother and sister, and Mrs Cowan, who had been among the pris oners captured by the Nez Perces. Schofield was pursued by the Indians, but succeeded in eluding them, and brought his soldiers and citizen charge safely into Fort Ellis. A Sore Affliction. Mrs. Mary Judge, a resident of Minne sota. is in Helena, making her home with Judge L. N. Smith, having come to Mon tana to recover the remains of her son, whom she learned had been killed by the Indians near Miles City about a year ago. And to show how oue trouble after another seems to be following the heart-stricken parent since her arrival \she has heard of j her daughter going crazy and being sent to an insane asylum, aud ouly last night she got word that a favorite son named Barney had died ou the 24th ult. at Minneapolis. To Arrive To-day. The distinguished temperance lecturer, Henrietta G. Moore, is expected to arrive by this evening's traiu, and will lie the guest of Mrs. K. H. Howey during a pof tion of her stay iu this city. She will be met at the depot by the reception com mittee appointed for that purpose, com posed of Revs. Garvin and Woods, Rev.

It is just about a mouth ago since the last fire occurred iu the city, caused by small boys kindling a bonfire in a barn. The Methodist church and parsonage in this city were once destroyed by the same cause, and at a still earlier day there was a feed stable on Rodney street destroyed by the same means. Is there no remedy ? We Itelieve there is. There are several tnat very clearly ought to be applied at once. Parents are morally and pecuniarily responsible for their children. It is every parent's business to know where the chil dren are and what they are alxnit. It is a parent s business to see that they do not get matches auil do not build fires. It is the business of people also to keep their stables and barns dosed up so that chil «Iren cannot get into them. The question is up for the fourth time and now let it stav nn till mm* , . e , stay up till some effectual remedy is found 11 an ' applied j I j j ^ _ j ^ Russell. From the Dailv Herald of August 5.

So from this on locals may lie expected from day to day of the latest aud most im portant matters going on within the tinkle of our little bell. Good Indians. W. A. Hedges, just in from his sheep ranch on the upper Musselshell, reports a general time of horse-stealing by red and white thieves. At a short distance lrom one of the narrator's sheep stations a party of Crows met with a party of Piegaus and the immediate consequence was a fight. Th ere were only seven of the Piegans to pj egan8 h ad stolen start with and three of them were left dead, and one Crow was killed. The Crows were out iu quite a large party and showed soule of the ranchmen a paper authorizing them to go out to fiud some horses that the Yet these same Crows meeting a younger son of Mr. Hedges, returning from Oka on horseback presented a gun at him and or dered him to dismount and give up his horse. At that interesting crisis a herder Of Mr. Berry's appeared accidentally on the scene and taking in the situation at a glance drew his rifle on the Indian and changed the balance of power. Can it be possible that any one in au thority has given Indians permission to rove over the country stealing and murder ing. These same Indians had only the daj T liefore rounded-up and killed some cattle. Within a week two Indians in broad day light stole a horse of Moule at Bercail, but l>eing hotly pursued abandoned their booty. These Indians are not stealing horses be cause they are hungry. It is outrageous that scattered settlers should lie so exposed to peril and loss. The Tongue River Shooting Case.

From the Daily Herald of August 6. Miss Moore as a Temperance Moralist. Miss Henrietta G. Moore's address at the Opera House last eveuing was heard by some hundreds of our people interested in the cause of temperance, of which the gifted lady is an earnest and eloquent ad vocate. The vice of intemperance was vig orously assailed and absolute prohibition stated as the only remedy for the evil. High license was a poor substitute and in effectual iu dealing with the liquor traffic. She favored separate and distinct political action of Temperance people. Tariff, free trade, civil service reform, were of minor importance compared with the pressing issue of temperance. Nationally and lo cally, she so construed it. The Republican and Democratic parties were likened to two cats. One, long pampered, had grown sleek aud fat, and of no good. The other, starved, lean and hungry, wanted a chance at the other's expense to grow as sleek and fat and worthless as its rival. In other words between the two parties, principles were not so much at stake as the offices. By in ference, the temperance people were the elect, and they only should be voted for and placed in power. With that the moral millenium would come, crime and pauper ism be no more, and in State and Nation all would be well. In substance, but brief ly expressed, such faintly portrays the lady's political ideas. Of course, not all, nor many, who in one way or another work in the cause, adopt Miss Moore's more rad ical views. They differ widely as to meas ures intended to mitigate or suppress in temperance, and not agreed as to the meth ods liest to sanction and the channels wis est to seek through which to effect mater ial and lasting good. The lecture as a whole was fascinating and instructive, and held the audience interested to the close. Miss Moore has hardly been overestimated as a logical and earnest reasoner, and few of her sex equal her in power and persua sion upon the platform. This afternoon she addressed a meeting of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union at the Grand street Methodist church. On Thursday evening she speaks in Missoula, aud later enters upon an engagement of some weeks in Washington Territory. Presbytery ot Montana. Quite a large congregation assembled last night at the Presbyterian church upon the opening of the Montana Presbytery. The assembly was called to order by the ! Rev. T. V. Moore, the presiding pastor, and the retiring moderator. After a prayer and scripture reading, Mathew 25:31, and singing, the Hon. Cornelius Hedges was introduced, who delivered an interesting discourse from the text of scriptures just read. The PrÄbytery then elected Kev. L. E. Hanna temporary clerk, and the Rev. E. P. Linnell, of Miles City, as moderator. After a report of the Committee of Ar- ; rangements, the Presbytery adjourned un til 9 o'clock this morning. Meetings were announced for 12:30, and 2 and 5 o'clock p. m. to-day. To-night there will he a prayer meeting service at the Presbyterian church, led by the Rev. R. M. Stevenson, of Bozeman. The subject for a discourse to-night, "The Baptism of The Holy Spirit The Great Need of the Church." New Buildings. We were shown this morning the draw ings forStadtler& Kaufman's new business building on Edwards street, which shows a two-story brick 30x60, with iron and cut glass front. T, W. Welter is the architect. The large business block on Clore street of & Weisenhorn & Becker is up ready for the first tier of joists. The business block on Main street of Mrs. Charles Kenck has the basement far enough advanced for the window and door frames. She is about to erect a dwelling house for her own use with a frontage on Jackson street, immediately at the rear of her business block. John Horskey's large business block on the corner of Main and Sixth avenue, be gins to show the fine granite trimmings on the front which stands side by side with the iron pillars and plate-glass. William 'Weir's new dwelling, which he is building for his own family residence on or near the corner of Strawberry street, will be completed next week. From Vice President Oakes. The following telegram, from Vice Pres ident Oakes to the Stoekgrowers Associa tion, was received to-day from St. Paul : " I send you to-day a pass for Veterinary Surgeon Dr. Long, good between Helena and Dickinson, D. T.. until October 31st. I suggest making Dickinson his headquarters, that being the end of the district and con venient t? stock yards, The stock yards àre about four miles west of Dickinson, hut there will be no difficulty in getting to them. I have instructed the Superintend ent of that Division to extend to Dr. Long every facility necessary to carry out the instructions and wishes of yonr Associa tion. "T.F. OAKES, "Vice Pres't Northern Pacific R. It." Sudden Death. Barney McArdle, a well-known miner and prospector for many years, who lived out on Silver creek, was found dead in his cabin at about 10 o'clock Sunday morn ing. He was leaning back upon his hunk, when found, and appeared to have died while in the act of lying down. His part ner had left him only a short time pre viously to go out and hunt the horses, and on returning found McArdle as above stated. Coroner Steele went out and held an inquest, resulting in a verdict of death from natural oauseS. McArdle was buried Monday in the Helena cemetery. The Bet Taken. The straw of the "prominent old time Republican" that appeared among the political chaff of the Independent yester day as indicating the direction of the Presidential wind in the State of New York has been taken up. That is, the bet of $1,000 that Cleveland, would cyry New York, has been taken by a prominent Re publican of Helena, and a check for $500 on the First National Bank of Helena is placed in the Herald office and E. W. Knight indicated as stakeholder. ( J , THE TEXAS CATTLE FEVER. Important Information from the Sec retary of the Wyoming Stock Association. In answer to inquiries instituted by Governor Crosby concerning the Texas cattle fever outbreak in Wyoming, the fol lowing dispatch, containing important in formation, has been received : Cheyenne, Wyo., August 2. — Hon. Jno. Schuyler Crosby, Governor : Texas fever was started by cattle brought by rail through from southern Texas. The infected dis trict is between Ojallola and Maxwell on the Union Pacific road. The disease is in the droppings, and any range cattle will take it from grazing near the trail or bed ding grounds of those cattle. Several herds have gone North. The Union Pacific is to give me a full list of owners and destina nation of such herds as have Come by rail. Will send you copy if desired. Your stock men cau then judge of the route taken by them. ' THOMAS STURGIS, Secretary W. S. Y. A. To supplement the foregoing advices. Governor Crosby has requested Secretary Sturgis to telegraph him all obtainable in formation of the mentioned list of cattle owners and of the herds whose destination is supposed to be Montana. The Legisla ture has provided no means by which effec tual police measures may be employed against the introduction of diseased cattle, but it is understood the Governor is de termined to keep them out of the Terri tory, if possible. To that end, if neces sary, he will take the responsibility of em ploying police agencies and of enforcing such vigorous quarantine regulations as will most effectually protect the stock ranges of Montana against the danger of this plague. Measures Taken to Protect the Cattle Interests of Montana. ! Following his proclamation, issued to day, establishing a quarantine against the admission of Texas cattle into Montana by rail, Gov. Crosby dispatched the General Manager of the Northern Pacific, Mr. Oakes, as follows : Helena, M. T., August 5. — Thomas F. Oakes, Vice President Northern Pacific, St. Paul :—For the protection aud in the in terest of twenty millions of dollars in vested in cattle in this Territory, I have issued a proclamation establishing quaran tine against the admission of Texas cattle into Montana by rail. What action can the Northern Pacific take to effect a hearty and immediate co-operation ? Of course the quarantine will be raised as soon as our inspectors report the danger from infection passed. Am officially in formed from Wyoming that Texas cattle are cn route for Montaua by rail, via N. P. Wire reply. JNO. SCHUYLER CROSBY. Governor. Office of Police Magistrate. The case of the city against Martin & Reynolds, professional gamblers, who are running what they call a private game in the International Hotel, was up this morn ; ing before Police Magistrate L. N. Smith. We welcome back to Helena a merchant of early days, Dave Goldberg, and back int0 the Herald adver tising columns the The case was called, but when the City Treasurer saw the list of names that were to go on to the venire, and learning that they had been placed there at the sugges tion of the defendants, he demanded a new deal and a cold deck. Officer Quirk was then directed to summon a jury of good and competent men. The case was post poned till 2 o'clock this afternoon. This is a case where an action is brought by the City Treasurer against F. L. Martin and G. S. Reynolds, alias "Bismarck Joe," for gambling without paying full city license. It appears that Martin and Reynolds are running a table of "stud poker," for which they pay a license of $25 per month and $10 additional per month for keeping a gaming house. It is under stood that the suit is brought to recover $37.50 for a license laid on "any other game" not mentioned in the city ordinance concerning licenses. The adjourned case was called this afternoon before a compe tent and intelligent jury of responsible citizens, and the jury fees paid by the de fendents' attorney, when it was discovered that a principal witness, one who had taken a hand in the game on a certain day, had skipped, been bought oft', spirited away, gone to be an angel. The case was then dismissed on the motion of the City Attor ney. Frank Frisbee a Defaulter. We clip the following from the Oregonian of a recent date, giving an account of a little episode in the career of a well-known Montanian. The article is entitled "The defaulting hank clerk." "Nothing has been heard of Frank Frisbee, the assistant exchange teller of the First National Bank. It Ls quite certain that he went away with no intention of returning, liis residence having been cleared of furniture without his landlord having been apprised of the fact. He got away with something over $5.000, which was all attracted in oue day. He appears to have made careful calculations in regard to the matter. He left on the steamer of July 26th for San Francisco, feeling certain that his theft would not be discovered till the end of the month. He has probably timed his move ments so as to connect at San Francisco with the steamer for Australia, as it would be useless for him to attempt to escape from justice in this country. Frisbee has been employed in the bank about ten months. Dave Goldberg. advertisement of this irrepressible mer chant. Since he left Helena he has been in business in the Black Hills and a num ber of other points in the West, but finally he comes back to his first love. He has opened out, in the Holter block, a fine stock of goods, consisting of clothing, gents furnishing goods, hats and caps, boots and shoes, guns and ammunition, imported and domestic cigars, tobaccos, and a general line of notions. Dave is a rustler and will make his way in this world. Call and see him. Biddle Reeves exhibited this morning a fine sample of his celebrated two-rowed brewer's barley of this year's crop, which, he says, will amount to seven thousand bushels. PERSONAL. —Jonas Higgins is over from White Sulphur Springs. —Mrs. W. Y. Simonton left yesterday morning for the east for a visit of several weeks.

Beecher, dentist of St. Paul, will occupy Dr. Foote's office during the latter's absence at Fort Shaw, where he is summoned professionally. Dr. Beecher is reputed a sklilful workman, and his servi ces will be at command during the visit north of Dr. Foote. —Miss Moore, for a couple of days a guest in Helena, is socially a very agreeable lady, and those who have had the oppor tunity of making her acquaintance have been most pleasantly impressed.

William Shields, a Northern Pacific em ploye, was run over by a freight train at Miles City on Saturday, was killed and horribly mangled by being dragged along on the track. He was in the habit of getting drunk, and it is believed that at the time of the fatality he was in that con dition and lying asleep on the track. —Mr. N. P. Langford, after an interval af about one yeai, is again in Helena on one of his official visits. His duties as Bank Examiner have been performed, and he leaves the last of the week for his home at St. Paul. Mr. Langford's present tour has taken in California, Oregon and other parts of the country west and east of the Rocky Mountains. Benjamin Maltby, of the firm of Maltby, Croft & Metcalf, wool-growers of Stamford, Meagher county, died on Thursday, July 30. He came to Montana in 1880 and herded sheep for the Montana Co. until he became experienced, and then started with a hand of 2,000 for himself. Mr. Maltby was from Waterbury, Conn., where his re mains will be sent for interment. —Our old time friend A. G. Wilhelm, of Pioneer, is in the city to-day attending to business matters pertaining to his mer cantile house. Mr. Wilhelm, it may he said truly, is one of the pioneers of Pioneer, and has built up a large aud growing trade in that well known placer camp, which, he says, is still one of the best, as it is one of the oldest, in Montana. — W. W. Dudley, of Jamestown, Dakota, who has been travelling through the Yellowstone, and viewing the Cooke min Mr. hasn't looked upon us during the season of 1884. May his stay in our midst be a pleasant one. —We had the pleasure to-dav of meet ing Geo. W. Tubbs, an old-time Montanian but of late years a resident of Los Angeles, his fine fruit farm in that sunny clime, liought a band of 3,000 sheep and started towards the land of mountains and valleys —his old and cherished home. The drive has been successful, and the band is now in the neighborhood of Bannack. —Wyllis A. Hedges, eldest son of Judge Hedges, who is engaged in sheep raising in Meagher county, is visiting the paternal home for the first time in three years. Mr. Hedges has a good location for the in dustry in which he has embarked and profitable returns have followed close and careful attention to his flocks. This year his wool clip, reaching 15,000 pounds, has been delivered to the Northern Pacific at Billings aud shipped to eastern markets. Mr. Hedges goes East presently, to be ab sent some weeks, and will be accompanied by his sister, Edna, who expects this fall to enter Wellesly College, Mass. California. Mr. Tubbs, last spring, sold out his fine fruit farm in that sunny clime, Our Water Mains. The grading of streets in various parts of the city has rendered necessary the lower ing of water mains to such depths as will place them below the winter frost line. The water company, we trust, will improve the opportunity to put in adequate and uniform pipe through those of the streets where a variety of sizes now abound. On Broadway, for instance, are sections of pipe of at least three sizes—from three inches down to as small as one and one-half inch es. Let the larger size he adopted and the pipe between Rodney and Main thus be made of uniform and sufficient capacity. We are sure the water company will so or der. now that its attention is called to the matter.__ ____ The President at Church. Kingston, N.
