Mr. Batterton, of Deer Lodge, was called

«as stated to obtain some information in j
re2 ard to the taxation of lands and prop- j
erty of railroad companies in Montana.
Messrs E. W. and J. K. Toole, who had
been employed to give a legal opinion on
the matter of taxing railroads, presented
their report. The opinion was very vol
uminous and was read by E. W. Toole,
whit . h occupied three-quarters of an hour
in the reading.
' Tbe opinion expressed the legality of

that the expenses be paid pro rata by
the respective counties except Deer Lodge.
U a meeting iu the evening Col. W. F.

vention as attorney for the Northern Pa
Kail road company, which occupied

considerable time,

the name of Frank L. McGowan, troop E,

here yesterday by Deputy U. S. Marshal
X. Biedler and placed iu the county jail.
This morning the deserter was sent to Fort

rank if he could find a
i rstood the business to
sing with him. This
iged letter he showed to a farmer. (A. G.
(owgill.) living near Spear Fish, near
Dead Wood, who was just the kind of a
man he was looking for. He waited there
long enough to get another letter from his
mother at the hospitable ranch of the
farmer. By the time it took the regular
mail to go east and return, another bogus
letter was manufactured and shown to Mr.
Cowgill, representing that the mother
would meet her son in Bozeman. Very
soon farmer Cowgill hitched up a team and
took the plausible son to Bozeman. Here
the youthful scape-grace spent some time
looking for his expected mother, and wish
ing to appear in good fix liefore his mater
nal parent. Mr. Cowgill bought him a suit
of clothes and gave him some loose change
to jingle iu his pocket. Not finding his
mother there, he made his farmer friend
believe that she had gone to Helena. Mr.
Cowgill stood in for the tickets and, believ
iug the whole story, came on to Helena
where he has been for several days looking
for the mith-mother. Finding out that he
had liven deceived he gave the deserter
sway and X picked uphimand sent him to

and some valuable time in assisting

DOWN THE RIVER.
Large Party Navigating the Mis
sonri Through the Gate of the
Mountains.
A
Two lx>at loads of excursionists pulled
out from Helena this morning on wheels
for Stubbs Ferry, where they will set sail
j ou the two water crafts under command of
! Commodore W. F. Wheeler, on a voyage
down the Missouri, through the grandest
scenery of any river in the world. The
I party is made up of some of our most dis
tinguished citizens, embracing Hon. Cor
i nclius Hedges, a member of the editorial
staff of the Helena Daily Herald ; E.
! V. Smalley, publisher of the Northwest ;
H. F. Farny, artist, of Cincinnati;
, C. H. Leadbetter, chief of Jhe Montana
! agents for Bancroft's History, Dr. C. G
Brown, Dr. C. K. Cole, W. A. Chessman,
W. B. Nickles, of tlie Montana Stock and
Mining Journal ; L. K. Hill, one of the
publishers of the Daily Independent, Master
Harry Wheeler, and Guy X. Piatt, local
editor of the Helena Independent. The
Commodore and a number of the hardy
mariners destined for Fort. Benton, took
their stations at an early hour this
morning and departed by wagons
for Stubb's Ferry. The land lubbers took
carriages at 11 o'clock and will overtake
the advance in time to take part in the
ceremonies of launching the two bouts in
to the Missouri, composing the fleet of Com
modore Wheeler's third expedition for 1884.
We may expect to read and see graphic
sketches of this voyage portrayed by pen
and pencil by some of the voyagers who,
as editors and artists, are equal to the task
of describing and painting in glowing
colors the grandeur of the upper Missouri.
The party goes prepared to tackle fish and
game, and to brave the perils of water, in
wardly and outwardly, and to enjoy the
pleasures of a camp of jolly sailors by
night and the mess of a bully crew by day.
Arriving at the Great Falls of the Mis
souri the party will make a portage, in
which their boats wili he hauled by wagons
about 20 miles, when they will proceed to
Fort Benton, and reach there probably
next Sunday.

James McMahon, a private of four years
service in the army, was shot and instantly
killed, the ball passing through his temple
and entering the brain.
The affair took place in Crany's saloon,
and the shot is believed to have been tired
by a person behind the bar.

CORNELIUS HEDGES, Gr. Sec.
A Missing Man.
J. M. Goodwin, of the Salt Lake Tribune,
left for home Saturday evening. About
one month ago his son, Will B. Goodwin, a
fireman on the Denver & Rio Grande rail
road, mysteriously disappeared from Salt
Lake City, under circumstances that point
to foul play. Mr. Goodwin thought he had
a clue to his missing son in Montana, and
his trip here was to trace up this clue ; but
he was again disappointed, and the sad
search will be prosecuted in other quarters.
Detectives have been engaged working on
the case constantly for four weeks, but the
case has completely baflied them. We
hope the affiicted family will yet succeed
in finding their missing son.
Walla Walla Joe.
The old time proprietor of the Walla
Walla House, on Main street, Helena, ap
pears this morning on the hotel register as
Guiseppe Appeloni, but better known as
Walla Walla Joe.
The reputation of the Walla Walla
House in the early days for a good hotel
where could be found the best the market
affords, was widespread, and Joe was
generally voted a popular landlord and a
good fellow.
Messrs. Schwab & Zimmerman are the
successors of Walla Walla Joe, who
changed the name of the hotel to the Cos
mopolitan, and are now its popular owners.
Joe visits Helena after a long absence, to
be enrolled among the Old Timers, now in
session here. He looks fresh and hearty,
and still wears the indispensible smile of a
popular hotel keeper. He will take in the
Old Timers and the Fair and then pack his
kit for the Little Rocky gold fields.

Grey Cloud Astonishes the Pool
Buyers, Winning the 3-4 Mile
Dash in 1191-2.
Bed Boy Wins the $1,000 Bunning Bace
in Two Straight Heats. Time,
1:47 and 1:49.
The races that were postponed from
Friday last came off' this afternoon, under
the most favorable conditions of weather
and track. The sun beaming forth in its
regular Montana brightness and the air
being warm and delightful. Such a day in
regular Fair Week would have brought
thousands to the grounds of the Associa
tion, as it was, the attendance was very
good, indeed.
The first race was called at 3 o'clock
Judges Crosby, Pope and Chessman in the
box. B. H. Tatem and C. E. Williams of
ciated as timers.
The pool selling was very active, about
eighty being sold at the Cosmopolitan on
Thursday evening and to-day at the track.
Hundley & Freuitt's ch. f. Kalata was the
great favorite with the buyers, and sold
two to one against N. Armstrong's stable,
so-called, which included the h. f. Lavina
and the g. g. Grey Cloud. The ch. f. Ida
Glenn was withdrawn.
A good start was had, with Kalata slight
ly to the fore, closely followed by the two
Madison county horses ; before the quarter
was reached Lavina had the lead which
she kept till the half
mile was reached, most of the
time having six lengths the advantage, but
on the home stretch the gap slowly closed
up, and her partner from the ancient capi
tal, at the 600 yard pole made a Beau ami
spurt and went to the front. He kept his
well won lead and passed under the string
in 1:19], two lengths ahead of Kalata, with
Lavina a close third.

The second race of the day's programme
was one of the greatest of the meeting.
The large purse and the well known boises,
who have won so many laurels on well
contested fields, altogether making an
event that would be of intense interest on
the most noted turfs of the country.
Pool selling was very active and averag
ed about $35 for Red Boy ; $22 for Monarch,
and $4 for Retort.

FIRST HEAT.
Red Boy drew the pole, with Retort iu
the centre, and Monarch on the outside.
The horses here taped off with an eveu
start. At the turn Monarch made sime
wonderful jumps and went to the front,
and when the half-mile post was reached
he lead by some eight lengths and cries of
MONARCH WILL WIN,
went up from the grand stand, and all
thought he had an easy thing of it, hut
Red Boy was getting in some good work,
and before reaching the three-quarter pole
he had closed np the chasm somewhat. As
they came down the home stretch the two
horses were running neck and neck,
with Retort several lengths behind.
Neck and neck they come down the stretch
and the excitement is intense, and the
horses fly like the wind, each running for
blood and all they are worth and hope for.
Now old Red Boy anwers to the chirp of
his rider and a few feet and inches are
gained, and still it is *
EITHER HORSE'S RACK.
Once again Red Boy is appealed to and be
responds with a magnificent jump and
passes under the string with Monarch »
nose on his rump, and Retort but a short
distance behind. Time, 1:47.
SECOND HEAT.
Pools now sold with Red Boy against
the field, two to one.
In response to the bell the horses got
their start with Retort having two or three
lengths the advantage which gave him the
pole at the turn with Red Boy and Mon
arch closely following.
In this manner three-fourths of the mile
was run with just daylight between the
horses.
At the home stretch Red Boy forged
ahead and took his place beside the plncky
Retort and Monarch was falling behind.
"When within fifty feet of the wire Red
Boy and Retort were nose and nose and
both horses doing uobly, but Red Boy was
too much for plncky little Retort and
when the line was passed was half a length
the foremost and so won the heat and race.
Monarch a poor third. Time, 1:49.

Reception to Rev. and Mrs. Gilbert. !
The reception last evening at the resi
dence of Chas. Rnmley in honor of Rev.
and Mrs. M. N. Gilbert, was largely at
tended. Nearly all of the church denomi
nations of the city being represented. Rev.
Gilbert, since relinquishing the rectorship
of St. Peter's church, has for the interven
ing three years been established over the
principal Episcopal congregation of St.
Paul, and the present is his first visit to
the Territory during that time. The
pleasant social occasion last evening afford
ed an opportunity desired by very many
friends to meet Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert and
to extend to them a renewal of former cor
dial greetings. Elalwrate refreshments
were served at a seasonable hour, and
somewhat later leave was taken of hostess
and farewells said to the honored guests,
who soon return to Minnesota.

Premiums Awarded at the Fifteenth
Annual Exhibition.
We publish to-day in the Weekly
Herald the awards of the judges, con
taining a complete list of the successful
competitors and the amount of premiums
to each. By a careful examination of this
list it will be found to contain the names
of many of the citizens of Montana who
so honorably figure in the vast field of
agriculture, arts, mechanics, and breeding
and domestic industries. These names
will go down in history as benefactors of

mankind, whose works will live after
them as monuments of an enlightened age, j
where the culture of the soil and its kin
dred industries had their votaries so hon
ored in their calling that they were
chosen to wear the palm that typifies the
the source of the greatest happiness of
mankind. The exhibits in all depart
ments have been very creditable, and the
premiums awarded will foot np high into
the dollars. But for the wet weather
that prevailed during the last three
days of the Fair, which kept away
thousands from the city, the late exhibi
bition would have been one of the most
successful ever held in Montana. As it
was, its results for the public good were of
marked importance, and the general inter
est of the whole occasion, considering the
establishment of the "Society of Montana
Pioneers," by hundreds of old timers, who
came together after many years of separa
tion, rendered it a time long to be remem
bered as one of the most interesting meet
ings ever convened at a Territorial Fair.

A Quarrel in Convention Results iu a
Bolt of Yellowstone Delegates.
[special to the herald.]
BozemÂN, M. T., Sept. 16.—The Demo
cratic County Convention met here yester
day, and adjourned to-day. It was as live
ly as a Donnybrook l'air and about as
peaceful. The delegates from the east side
of the range asked the privilege of naming
the candidate for Councilman and one of
the three candidates for the House. The
rest of the county ticket they were willing
to concede to the west side. This was
Certainly a very reasonable request, but
r , T> , , . .. ,__
the Bozeman delegates saw in it a scheme
to secure a division of the county, and un
graciously autagonized it.
The question came to an issue ou the
nomination for Councilman, the east siders
supporting Hou. J. A. Savage, and the west
siders F. K. Armstrong, Esq. The latter
! was nominated. Thereupon nine of the
! Livingston delegates and two or three of
1 the Cooke City delegation withdrew and
j took no further part in the convention.
! The ticket was completed as follows:
For Assemblymen—\Vm. Martin, J. M.
Robinson and Alfred Myers.
For Sheri ff-C. P. Blakeley.
For County Recorder— M. M. Black.
For Treasurer—Win. Fly.
For Probate Judge—A. D. McPherson.
For Assessor—Juo. McDonald.
For Superintendent of Public Schools—

Fannie Palmer.
Current matters of news, goss'p and
fashion talk, from far away Gotham, will
he found in decidedly interesting form in
Fannie Palmer's letter, printed to-day. This
spicy journalistand correspondent is known
by her letters to many Herald readers,
and enjoy here as in the East a popularity
that never wanes. As an elocutionist and
reader, too, few have won honors equal to
her's. She is a favorite not only in enter
tainments which contribute to the amuse
ment and enjoyment of the public, but is
in demand in this sphere of imparting
pleasure in the best drawing-rooms of the
great cities of the country. The long-made
promise to visit friends in Montana, we are
glad to know, is about to be fulfilled, and
we feel safe in saying tha£ when she comes
the Helena public will have the benefit of
one or more of her readings. She will
meet a warm Western welcome from the
Capital City people^ we warrant.
A Blaine and Logan club has been
organized in New York city, composed ex

A NEW
VERSION OF
HELENA.
NAMING
Obtained From Thomas E. Cooper,
Now Living at Grafton, Dakota.
j
i
j
The account of the naming of the city of
Helena, as given by Thomas E. Cooper, of
Grafton, Dakota, is as follows: "Thomas
Cowan, from Georgia, in 1864, had a sluice,
and was mining in Last Chance. On Sept.
24,1864, Mr. Cooper and company of pros
pectors and Captain Wood, built a cabir,
where the heart of the city now is. A
meeting was called to organize the mining
district and John Summerville was chosen
chairman, and Thomas E. Cooper, secretary.
The question of naming the town came
up, aud there being a great diversity of
opinion as to the name the town should
bear, and not being able to agree the chair
man, Summerville, got up and stated as
follows: 'That he belonged to the best j
country in the world, and lived in the best ;
State in that country, and in the best j
county (Scott) of that State, and the best 1
town (Helena) in that county, and by the \
eternal this town shall bear that name.' "
News as is News.
That the Bozeman coal company is pro
ducing a good quality of anthracite coal, is
news indeed, which is given in this morn
ing's Independent More likely soft or
bitumous coal.
The Helena Light Guards.
The Helena Light Guards were last
evening mustered into the Montana militia
as company C of the Montana National
Guards. The oath of office was admin
istered by Major H. Brady Wilkins, ord
nance officer.

Floral Hall.
( It would not Iw doing full justice to the*
magnificent articles in Floral Hall or to>
the ladies who contributed to the attrac
tive display there if no more mention is
made of them than is found in the un
garnished report of the judges. The fact
that they have passed judgment and
awarded the premiums offered by the As
sociation shows the official discharge of
their duties to the best of their abilities,
hut the cold array of figures lulls far short
of conveying a proper idea of the elegance
in this department. Among the lady con
tributors who competed for the premiums
offered for the most attractive display
were Mrs. E. V. Styles, Mrs. Wm. Sims,
St. Vincent's Academy, Mrs. M. H. Fisk,
Edith Simons, Mrs. E. Sharpe, Mrs. G,
Monroe, Mrs. G. H. Curtis, Mrs. S. C.
Ashby, Mrs. J. G. Sanders, Mrs. A. O'Con
nell, Mrs. L. W. Spencer, Mrs. J. P. Wool
man, Mrs. R. A. Punchers.
The number of lady contributors in com
petition for needlework, fancy work, Ken
sington work, crazy work, embroidery, lace
work, crochet work, machine work, quilts,
knitting work, paintings and drawings,
Home Department were entered by soores.
Such enterprise, taste and exquisite pro
ductions in the Floral Hall at the late Fair
are therefore deserving of more than usual
notice. We therefore take pleasure in ac
cording in a general mention deserved
praise to all the exhibitors at that gallery
of the fine arts aud domestic productions.
The Livingston Enterprise prints the
following from its representative at the
Territorial Fair: "The scene on opening
the door of the ladies' department fairly
beggars description aud excels anything of
the kind I have ever seen before. It is
the attraction of the Fair, being crowded
all the time, aud is almost a realization of
fairyland. I allude to the display of
women's work, and am fain to admit that
the ladies put the men to shame if their
work and the quality exhibited is a fair
criterion. Fans, pictures, brass plaeques,
mother of pearl shells, all most exquisitely
band painted, silk embroidered banners,
screens, lambrequins and crazy quilts, fit
for a sultan, arrayed with an artistic ele
gance and perfect blending of colors. The
exhibit must be seen to be fairly appre
dated, and I feel well repaid for my trip
by the pleasure I experienced from it."
