Meeting
The meeting of the Commissioners of
Lewi« and Clarke county, called for Satur
day. was postponed until this morning to
enable the contractors to complete the
finishing parts of t a« steel-clad cells. The
ontractors, Messrs. Charles H. and Walter
Sparks, for Messrs P. J. Pauley & Bro., of
St. Louis, reported that their contract was
finished and the cells, fixtures, etc., ready
for inspection. Accordingly Messrs. Cuth
bert aud Milligan, a majority of the county
board, met this morning at the jail, aceom
panied by a number of citizens, consisting
of ex-Sherifts, business men aud reporters.
The party was conducted by Mr. C harles
H. Sparks thioughout the whole premises,
who very politely and conscisely described
and explained the workings of the locks
and bars, and with cold chissels tested the
chilled steel cells. The whole number of
cell door- ou one side are closed from a
lock box. where a lever bar is worked by
the jailer without going among the 1
prisoners. The whole jail has been ;
renewed on the inside aud steel bars placed j
in all the windows. The outside doors arè |

The jail will now accommodate forty |
pret and second class prisoners. Two of [
the cells are provided with a double num-j
ber of hammocks for eight persons iu the
first-class cells on the lower tier.' The
whole of the eell-work rests Ofl railroad
irou girders raised above the ground where
they rest ou a solid foundation. Between
the cells and the jail walls is a walk three
feet wide that is grouted for about eight
een inches and then covered with a cement
that makes an artificial stone that can be
scrubbed and cleansed with an abundance
of water. Everything seems to be aceom- j
plished for the security and health of pris
oners. proper regard being liad to ventila- I
tiou, drainage aud plenty of water for liath
iug and drinking.
The Commissioners made a thorough in
'pectiou of everything inside and out and
were no doubt satisfied iu every particular,
.us were the spectators, that Lewis aud
Clarke county had one ot' the liest prisons
n the country. The Commissioners have
accepted the work and the contractors will
get their pay £15,800) at the next regular
meeting. The work has been completed
uuder the superintendence ol Malter
'parks, with Herman Stoppelman as j
master mechanic and E. W. Barton ma- I
1 hiuest —the whole being finished in about
five weeks. The cells will be turned over
to the Sheriff to-day. and he will have
them occupied to night by some ot the
most important prisoners now in the city
jail.
\ttempted Infanticide.
At six o'clock this morning Air. Lee,
proprietor of the Denver House, at the

Ingersoll Reviewed.
A highly interested audience was assem
bled last evening at the Cathedral to hear
Bishop Brondel review the lecture delivered
by R. G. Ingersoll at Helena on the 30tli of
Jnly last. Bishop Brondel's review was
only announced one day before its delivery,
still there was a fair attendance, sufficient
to give the St. John's Hospital, for whose
business it was announced, nearly £100.
The Bishop spoke without notes and read
extracts from Iugersoll's lecture, as pub
lished in the Herald, which he reviewed
with great force of argument and logic.
He prefaced his remarks by stating that ht:
felt it his duty to review Mr. Ingersoll
first, because he had attacked at Helena
the scriptures, so dear tp Catholics and
Protestants, and the Old Testament, held
in guch veneration and esteem by the Jews,
and second because he had attacked the
Priests and orders of the Catholic church.
Also, that as a Bishop he felt it his duty to
review Mr. Ingersoll, whom he character
ized as the greatest Infidel of America, lest
his views, if left unanswered, would leave
a bad impressiou upon some who heard
him. The Bishop's address was calm
and dignified, while it answered
with strikiug arguments the infidel s as
saults upon the church.
Especially was he severe on that part of
Mr. Ingersoll's lecture where he alluded to
the priests "fattening on the people," by
saying that while the one was lecturing
in Helena at five hundred dollars a night
and going from place to place for more
money without giving anything in return,
the poor priests of Montana were presiding
at an exhibition at Saint Ignatius Mission,
where Indian pupils showed rapid advance
ment in civilization, religion, learning and
music taught them by the priests who had
lived among them, speaking their own
language, shariug their necessities and pri
vations without mouey or other compensa
tion other than a conviction that they
were doing all in their power for the
greater honor and glory of God.
The lecture or review lasted one hour
and twenty minutes, and was both inter
esting and instructive from the lieginning
to the end.
That Sunken River.
To the Editor of the Herald.
I overlooked reading last Wednesday's
Her ald and so w as not aware, until a few
moments ago (1 learned it by accident' of
the Helena Artesian Well Company's mag
nificent offer of $500 if I would show them
where to locate their plant so as to reach
the underground river whose existence I
advocated in a letter to the Herald a day
or two before,
In reply I must say
that it would be
useless for me to point out how this sunken
river could be reached, for the reason that
these gentlemen believe firmly that no
such river exists and could not be convinced
to* the contrary. The skeptical tone in
which their letter is written shows that
quite plainly.
In conclusion. I will say that if those
interested will call on John Cummings,
well driller, at his camp near the Catholic
cemetery, they will learn that the sunken
river is not a child of imagination,

Dear Sir :—The practical test of the

open and enclosed fires) satisfied me that
the " Challenge,' - as an extinguisher of in
cipient fires, performed, in a very effective
manner, all that was claimed lor it.
I am convinced it will prove a valuable
auxilliary to the lire department It should
be kept in every store and dwelling, as a
safe aud effective means of paralyzing any

A large crowd and a hoi fire were the
principal features ot the fire test on Satur
day evening of the Challenge Extinguisher,
The ground chosen was admirably suited
to the purpose-ot a big fire, where there
v, as no danger of communicating the flames '
to adjoining houses The place was in the
excavation made lor the Masonic Temple,
corner of Broadway and Jackson street,
aud from -ix to eight feet Ik low the sur
face. A chimney, or vertical flue, was
made ami filled with tinder aud pine cut
tings. The extinguishing fluid gas was
applied when the liâmes were burning
rapidly, and the fire was put dead out lor
about six feet up the flume, but there not
being sufficient gas lor so large a llame the
upper part of the fire continued to burn.
The experiment showed that the extin

portion to llie size ol' the fire, when there
is no doubt but that the Challenge Extin

Fair Week.
Time tlies with teutless heed, and, how
ever fast, there is no disguising the fact
that next Monday week, September 8tb,
will see the excitement and bustle in
Helena usually attendant upon the com
mencement of Fair Week. Whatever pre
parations are to be made before that time
must be done during this week and next,
for on the second day thereafter the Fair
will liegia. After this week's issue of the
Weekly Herald there will tie only one
more issue before Fair time, and, of course
only this and another opportunity will lie
presented through the columns of the
Weekly of reminding our subscribers all
over the Territory that ou next Monday
week the great annual festival will begin
at Helena. That occasion this year will
be one of unusual interest and attraction,
when there will probably be a greater
number of people collected together than
upon any former meeting of the kind iu
Montana. Many favorable circumstances
tend to this promising result, beside the
great amount of premiums offered by the
association, which this year reach $11,000.
The premiums take a very wide range and
embrace almost every article grown, pro
duced and owned in the farming districts
of the Territory. The premiums on a
good wagon load of superior pro
ducts, poultry, dairy afid other
results of good farming, will
amount to more actual cash than the ex
penses attendant upon bringing the whole
family to the Fair. The ra:.io*d ride,
which must yet lie a novelty to many of
our readers in remote parts of the Terri
tory, will be a uew inducement to test the
luxurious contrast between the protracted
jolting journeys made in former times in
dead-ax wagons and rough jerkies. The
Fair time will be the pleasantest time of
the year when the Helena markets are the
fullest of fresh fruits, grapes and melons.
The seasou to many farmers will be af
ter harvest, or at least after reaping, when j
they can spend a day or two away

from home, more conveniently than
at any other time of the year,
when they can travel comfortably. The
noted horses that will be here to contend
for the purses offered iu the running and
trotting races will of themselves well
repay a visit to see which is the fastest
nag. Helena has a large welcome for
the thousands who will come to see the
Fair, and is better prepared at this tiniein
hotel accommodations than upon any
previous occasion. Next Monday week,
and don't you forget it.
A Serious Accident.
Louie Keeder, one of the popular aud
skillful brick aud stone masons ot Helena
for many years, met with what is con
sidered by his physicians as a fatal accident
this morning, by the giving way ot a scat
fold upon which he was standing. It ap
pears that he was working upon a chim
ney of a house of his own that he had
moved from the city block on W est
Main street to the southwest corner ol the
same block. As he said himself to a re
porter of the Herald, he had gone
down the street for a little spell and while
tlê Was away the colored man had carried a
big pile of brick upon thç scaffold, and ,
gave way, precipitating him to the ground.
Upon being visited at the Sisters Hospital, ;
and in reply to the question of bow are
v J 1
you getting on, Louie? he replied :
"The doctors say there is no show for me.
I have telegraphed to my brothei.
"Where did y ju come from?"
"I was born in Pennsylvania and my
folks live near Doylestown, Bucks county,
where my father, two brothers and a half
brother now live."
"Do yon sutler much pain ?"
"Yes, a great deal." «*
One of his three nurses, Geo. W. McBur- (
ney, said he had no feeling iu his limbs
from his hips down. Several doctors are
iu attendance. There is no hope of his
getting well.
Another Scaffold Falls.
A scoffold to a house near the depot,
where Frank Jacoby and a number of his
workmen were engaged, fell this morning
carrying three of them to the ground.
Frank Jacoby, the contractor, had a nail or
spike forced into the sole of his foot, an
other workman, whose name we did not
learn, had his leg broken above and below
the knee, and anotLer man had his arm
broken.
Such accidents are too eomriion and they
show how careless our best men become
even xvhen poised upon the highest bnild
iug and scaffoldings. The great motive of
dispatching work and exhibiting a com
mendable degree of enterprise are apt to
blind these industrious workmen to the
first law of nature.
More Jails for the Northwest.
Mr. Charles H. Sparks, the gentlemanly
and enterprising contractor for Messrs. P.
J. i'auley & Bro., of St. Louis, who has
just finished the steel clad cells for the
Lewis and Clarke county jail, has con
tACtS ** loar more -) ai,S in the North
west—one at l'endleton, Oregon, one at
Union, Oregon, one at Oregon City, and
one at Olympia, Washington territory.
Mr. Walter Sparks will superintend the
construction of all these jails, and is iu
hopes of having them completed before
snow flies. Withthesameeuergyandin
dustry with which he built our new jail
here, Mr. Sparks no doubt will complete
his several contracts in the Northwest and
be home for a Christmas dinner at farthest.
New Improvements.
Among the new buildings 'Q Helena
where preparations are begun towards con
struction is the warehouse on Clore street
that will be erected under the suoerinten
deucy of John K. Watson for James Per
kins. The building will be 35x80 feet,
which, when completed, will be one ol' the
best in tbe City, and thoroughly fire proof.
Another improvement, where work is
begun, is*the livery and sale stable of John
A. Zeigler that is being constructed on the
corner of Clore and Wall street 40x«0 feet,
two stories and a basement.

A Cold-Blooded .Murder.
This morning about 5 o'clock a Celes
tial by the name of Joe Fook was found
murdered in his bed in a house in China
town. A Herald reporter going th's
morning to the scene of the murder, viewei
the dead Chinaman as he lay on his pil
low in the same position that he went to
sleep last night. He had not apparently
moved since the fatal shot, and lay in a
pool of blood with a puff of brains oozing
out from the bullet hole ou the top of the
forehead over the left eye. It was evident
thatjhe had been murdered by some person
holding a pistol close to his head and firing
it while standing at the head of the bed.
The position of the body this morning
was with the feet towards a back door and
near to it, and the head towards a middle
door in the centre of the cabin, lying on a
bunk, where the dead man had been in the
custom of sleeping.
Joe Fook was a Chinaman without any
occupation except that of a gambler, and
had been about Helena for ten or twelve
years. He was probably 45 years of age,
and belonged to the Yang Wah company.
Dr. Wm. Steele held a corofier's iaqoust
over the remains this morning, when wit
nesses testified that Joe Fook had a diffi
culty with another Chinaman a day or two
before the murder, when a knife was
drawn aud a threat made to kill. It ap
pears that this Chinaman slept in o*e of
the rooms of the cabin occupied by a hall
dozen others, distributed about od separate
bunks, aud that some time during last
night (supposed tobe about 2 o'clock a.
m.) he arose from his bed aud tired
the fatal shot into the head of Joe Fook,
the murdered Chinaman. The Celestial
who is charged with the murder and slopt
iu the same cabin with Joe Fook is missing
to-day, and the officers are out after him.
The missing man also belongs to the Yang
Wah company, and there is a mystery
about the whole affair that would give
color to the report that there exists a feel

Sad and Fatal Accident.

Dt. I. C. Smith, ol A V^inia City, on a
Deutli ot Louie Reeder.
Louie Keeder, of Helena, who met with
a fatal accident yesterday morning by the
falling of a scaffold upon which he was at
work, died last night at the Sisters' Hospi
tal at 8 o'clock. He was conscious up to
the very minute of his death and convers
ed freely with the boys, as he called them
that were waiting on him.
Yesterday at 5 o'clock he sent for lawyer
Bullard and E. M. Hoyt and executed his
will, appointing his brother, H. T. Keeder,
of Diamond street, Philadelphia, his sole
executor.
Louie was au old-timer in Helena, com
ing here in 1867, aud doing his first work in
masonry on the Helena Court House. He
was a faithful friend and a good workman,
and had a host of personal companions who
deeply regret his death. He was of Qua
ker parentage, came from Bucks county,
Pennsylvania, and was a bachelor ot prob
ably 48 years of ajje. He had accamulat
ed some valuable property iu Helena, aud
visit to Mrs. Sawtelle, a patient living be
yond tbe Madison divide, was killed last
Thursday, 21st ln«t.. by his wagon upset
ting upon him and killing him instantly.
He was found under b»s wagon where it
had been upset upon hifcr hear tbe ford of
the Madison river.
When the body of the deceased, uas
brought to Virginia City it was found that
his neck was broken.
Dr. Smith was one of the pioneer phy
sicians ot Montana, and will be great ly
missed by hosts of friends throughout the
Territory. He was buried under the au
spices of the Masonic fraternity at Yir
ginia City on Snnday, the 24th instant.
Pioneer Merchant».
The purchase of the Millen boot and
shoe store in Helena by Matt. Carroll and
John R. Drew brings together in the same
business two of the earliest merchants
known to the early days in this country.
The one as an agent of the American Fur
Company sold goods in the Northwest
Territory, now embraced in Montana, be
fore it was Idaho, and the other. John R.
Drew, as a representative of Gurney Co.,
sold the first pair of lioots ever sold in Last
Chance gulch. Both are competent and
popular business men. well known through
out Montana for their liberality aud fair
dealing. They are both bachelors, and
start out in the same boat, so to speak, a
well matched team for a good business
training, which they both understand so
well. We don't mean the business, of re
maining bachelors, but that of giiviug a
square, intelligent deal to both ladies and
gentlemen iu their new co-partnership.
To be just iu the notice we make to
day of both these old-timers, it is but
proper to state that there is no truth in the
report circulated a short time ago that Mr.
Drew was married while in St. Louis. The
new firm will be John R. Drew & Co., and
the sale, which was made last Monday, of
the whole stock of boots and shoes, leather
aud findings of Mrs. Louisa Millen, will be
fully consummated when the appraise
ment and invoice, low going on, is com
pleted. All sales made since Monday
last are made in the uame of the new firm.
The building is not included in the sale.
The house of John R. Drew & Co. has our
best wishes for a prosperous trade and
every good fortune.

"No, no. That Buffalo chap's— er — er —'
"Oh. you mem Cleveland's?"
"Yes, certainly. I never can catch on to
that name easy."
"Well, what about it?"
"Tbe Herald couldn't make sense out
of it, you know."
"Fact. Found any one who could ?' -
"No: that's just the point I was getting
at. I took the pains to examine the Utah,
Galiloruia aud Eastern papers and find the
same unintelligible texts, slightly varied,
but unintelligible still. It was a mixed
mess, sure enongh, but clearly iu this case
the operators west were not at fixait.''
We now think the Buffalo candidate, or
the managers acting for him, purposely con
fused it. Let the blame rest where it
should.
