creditable appearance at the World's Ex

Though General Harris belongs to that
class of recent residents, entrusted with a

among Democrats as carpet baggers, yet it
is only common honesty to say that Mon

Harris returns about Christmas. We with

a pleasant journey and return.

by rail was made yesterday by John II.

hundred fat bullocks to Chicago. This is
only a beginning of a large and lucrative
business in this line which has been inaug

Acting Governor John S. Tooker, Secre

of Con Murphy, who is an escaped prisoner
from the Lewis and Clarke county jail,
under indictment for horse stealing.^
It is known that this notorious outlaw
escaped from our county jail under
suspicions of complicity or criminal
negligence on the part of the jailor. At
any rate a notorious horse thief and road
agent is at large and no doubt is at this
time sheltered and subsisted by his con
federates who infest a neighboring county.
The reward is offered in accordance with
authority vested in the Executive of this
Territory, and is prompted by a just con
sideration for the peace and protectiofi of
the citizens of Montana. The Territorial
Grand Jury unanimously petitioned Gov
ernor Tooker to oiler a liberal reward for
the capture and return of the prisoner, and
that petition was supplemented by another
numerously signed by other citizens of

Crows and Their Reservation.
[Livingston Enterprise.]
Of the 4,713,000 acres belonging to the
Crows at least 1,000,000 are capable of the
highest cultivation. Yet, during all of last
year and up to the present date, there were
but ten acres cultivated by the government
for tbe Indians, and 125 acres tilled by the
Crows themselves without assistance from
anybody. From the 125 acres handled by
the Red Men were obtained about
1,500 bushels of vegetables, which were
consumed entirely by themselves. List
>' ear tb e Crows pat up 35 tons of hay and
cut over 300 cords of wood. The winter
months, as is the custom among all tribes,
were 8 P ent i Q hunting for game among
the monntains and on the plains.

A Daring Robbery.
Last evening about (J o'clock, while Mr.
D. B. Howe and wife and employees at
their furrier establishment were absent at
supper, a thief entered the front door on
Main street by means of a pass key, and
stole lietween nine and ten dollars in silver
in change and a valuable beaver robe, worth
$100. It appears that a key was left in
the door by one of the household at noon
time, which being observed by the robber
as he was spying around in the afternoon,
■was pocketed. At night fall when the
coast was clear, and the fur store deprived
of its usual busy occupants, the thief en
tered and had things all his own way
The robe, a notable manufacture of Mrs.
Howe from selected pieces of dark and.
light beaver, was as handsome an article
as could be put together of this valuable fur.
The robe was lined with Indian cloth and
elegantly quilted and had a costly silk
fringe of green and canary. It is so re
markable in its manufacture and so well
known by many who have examined this
beautiful robe, that it will be impossible
for the thief to sell it in Helena without
being detected. It is probable that it is
hidden for the present until a favorable
opportunity offers for sending it away by
express or freight. A thorough search in
all suspected places should be made by the
police, and a sharp watch kept on all sus
pected persons in the city or leaving it by
The Helena Gas Light Company.
A Herald reporter this morning at
tended at the gas works to witness the op
eration of firing up and setting all things
in order for a test of turning Montana coal
into gas. The furnaces were heated up
and the retorts red hot to receive the coal,
but from the leaking of some joints and
water valves, the process of the start-up
was deferred until the afternoon to an
hour too late lor our reporter to gather the
particulars for this evening's paper. At
any rate the final work of geting all things
ready to make gas is iu charge of Mr.
William McDonough who was present this
morning giving the matter his personal
supervision. He is authority lor saying
that on Saturday night the start-up will
be completed and a number of the business
houses will he lighted up. Of course the
quality of the gas will he tested before
that time and every opportunity will he
afforded by Saturday to give the engineer
ample experiment so as to provide as good
a quality of gas as van be obtained else

A shooting affray took place at Living
ston on Sunday evening between Jefferson
Bryant and John Bowman, partners in a
saloon. They had some difficulty and
came to blows and Bryant got pretty rough
ly handled. He left the saloon saying, "I
will get even with you," and soon after
ward returned with a rille and shot Bow
man dead. Bryant fied to the house of a
friend but was soon captured and jailed.

valuable as others in that bonanza belt.

Counting the Vote of a Wildcat Precinct.
Protest from Indignant Cltizens-
Who the Elected Are.
[special to the herald.]
Benton, Mont., November 18.—The of
ficial count of Choteau has been made. The
canvassers, wholly Democratic, counted the
Rocky Point precinct, which was not es
tablished, after due consideration by the
Board of Commissioners. This was owing
to an honest desire on the part of the two
Commissioners present to have no cry of
fraud or room for suspicion by either party.
The minutes of the Board show no order
for a precinct and no poll books were sent,
no judges appointed, and no notice given.
Thirty-three votes were cast, twenty-six
of which were Democratic. The Republi
cans sent no tickets down and only four
Republican votes were cast. The so-called
returns sent up were informal and irregu
lar. Republicans and many Democrats re
gard the canvass of this precinct as an out
rage. Protest was made and the matter
will be tested in the courts. The action of
the returning hoard is in conflict with the
Commissioners' action and apparently up
holds the assertion that it is impossible to
hold an honest, lair election in Choteau
Toole's majority, exclusive of Rocky
Point, is 147; Hunt's majority, 103.
Spencer, Probate Judge (Rep.), Miner,
Treasurer (Rep.), Johnston,Superintendent
of Schools (Rep.), Griffith, Surveyor (Rep.),
Ingersoll, Public Administrator (Rep.),
Fairfield, Coroner (Rep.), and Houston,
Coroner, carry the county and are elected
without this bogus precinct. If this pre
cinct is counted Toole's majority is in
creased 28 votes, and the Republicans
elected have their majorities reduced, but
none are defeated. X.

"It will be remarkably mild and open,

the republication of the prophecy in the

A Spectacle.
[Minneapolis Tribune,]
Those of us who have been prone to see
in a feminine ballot a remedy for many
threatening political and social evils can
think twice about it if it turns out that
the only political movement by women
this year has helped to crown with earth's
highest honor a notorious libertine, and
turn the control of the country over to the
party of free rum. The national organiza
tion of the Woman's Christian Temperance
Union, led by Miss "Willard, has by its
efforts in behalf of Cleveland and the De
mocracy, succeeded in rendering that associ
ation odious in the eyes of millions of ag
gressive temperance people. Its work in
the recent campaign has put back the cause
of prohibition half a century—and this
verdict is recorded by one who has hither
to regarded the organization as a judicious
and effective agency for doing a beneficent
work. When a so-called Woman's Chris
tian Temperance Union can conscientiously
and willingly contribute to the coronation
ot lechery and the riot of rum—all in the
name of political parity and "home pro
tection"—it is time to examine foundations
and see whether sense or silliness is at the
helm. Thank God, thousands of the mem
bership of the Woman's Christian Temper
ance Union have not approved the suici
dal and disgraceful course of the leaders
of the Willard class, bat they have been
entirely too slow and timid in speaking
their disapproval. The Willard people
will probably look to their new Democratic
allies hereafter for aid and comfort in their
prohibition efforts.

Greene smiled sadly, and said he was
afraid it had gone against us. A young
man in the crowd, who had accidently
heard my inquiry, smilingly produced from
his vest pocket a telegram and poked it
under my nose. Guess he thought I was
near sighted. It was a dispatch from
Cleveland's private secretary, and said that
his chief had carried New York State by
1,500. On the strength of this the young
man had bet a thousand dollars on the
general result. This betting money on
elections has a demoralyzing effect, and
somehow I can't help wishing that young
man may loose his money—just to teach
him that it is wrong to bet.
Coming through Yellowstone county the
train stopped a moment at a station and I
saw Norton, the Republican member elect
to the Legislature, standing on the platform.
"Hello, Norton, how has it gone? I
" All right," said Norton.
" Hurrah ! " said I, as loud as I could af
ter seventy-two hours of reading dispatches
and yelling like a madman.
"Yes," said he, "King's eleeted.
"Who in blazes is King ?"
"Why, our sheriff!"
"Excuse the 'blazes,' Norton—1 was
thinking of the Presidential contest." And
somehow when the train pulled out I
couldn't smile once, notwithstanding Nor
ton communicated good news.
At Bismarck we learned that the Re
publican Committee still claimed New
York, but the final result would not be
known until the official count was made.
This news was bracing, and on the strength
of it 1 drank a bottle of 'pollinairus water.
We passed through the good Republican
town of Steele, east of Bismarck, about 10
p. m. The Democrats, in response to Bar
num's invitation, had built an immense
bon tire and were trying to celebrate ; but
the Republicans, numbering five to one,
had gathered around and were drowning
the feeble cheers for Cleveland with
! tremendous huzzas lor Blaine.
In St. Paul, where I stopped for an hour
to take dinner, I tried to interview a few
of my friends on the "political situation.
The universal answer was, "Excuse me
from talking—my throat won't permit
' it!"
In Chicago the excitement had to a
great extent died oat, the great mass of
the people having made up their minds to
go about their usual avocations and await
the-official count.
Yesterday I took the day express over
the Michigan Central. In every hamlet,
town and city through the State to Detroit
were still flying the banners and Hags of
the two Presidential candidates, showing
how hot had been the fight iu this good
State of Michigan—and she is still loyal
to her colors. The Democrats, the
Fusionists, the Saint Johns' and the mug
wumps, all together couldn't down the Re
publican ticket.
We took dinner at Marshall, and between
politics and hash the twenty minutes for
refreshments passed very rapidly. A pretty
waiter girl, with Michiga- roses in her
cheeks and turtle doves in her eyes, came
to take our order-for dessert. A traveling
companion on my right said to her :
"My dear girl, if the official count gives
New York to Blaine I presume you will
"My dear young man,'' replied she quick
ly, "let me give you a pointer, and don't
you forget it. 1 wear a Cleveland badge
or nothing !"
My friend collapsed. For fear that the
girl may carry out her threat he hopes
Cleveland may be counted in.
Michigan is a prosperous State, and
from Chicago to Detroit, where we arrived
at 6:30, the scenery is one rapidly shifting
panorama of beautiful homes, farms, towns
and cities. For a change it well pays one
to take the express that leaves Chicago at
8:50 a. m., even though you pass Niagara
Falls at 3:30 in the morning.
As I take my breakfast in Buffalo I
think a moment and find that I am out
just exactly four days from Helena.
Pretty fast traveling, and no time wasted.
A. J. F.
Blaine, the Leader.
The election unquestionably leaves Mr
Blaine the leader of the Republican party.
He is the only person iu it who has added
largely to its recruits from the ranks of
the opposition, and no other man probably
could keep that element. No other Re
publican leader in the country has shown
anything like Mr. Blaine's capacity or gen
Iral success. Mr. Harrison, of Indiana,
has lost the State where there was an ap
parent certainty for the Republicans.
Blaine gave his chief exertions to Ohio,
which he saved in October and got by a
great increase in November, and if he had
controlled personally the campaign in New
York State, and given it all the rest of his
attention after the October election, he
would, no doubt, have made the few hun
dred votes required here.
Another World's Exhibition.
New York, November 13.—It has been
officially announced through the British
consulate that an international inventions
exhibition will be held in London in 1885
ander the patronage of the Queen, the
Presidency of the Prince of Wales and the
management of an executive council com
posed of eminent Englishmen.
Protesting Against the Lease of Three
Million, Five Hundred Thousand
Acres of the Crow Reservation.
A large and justly aroused mass meeting
of the citizens of Yellowstone county, held
on the 13th inst., gave utterance to their
indignation by the following preamble aud
resolutions :
Whereas, It has come to the knowledge
of the citizens of Eastern Montana that a
scheme is on foot to lease the western por
tion of the crow reservation, containing
three and one-half million acres of the
richest farming aud grazing lands in Mon
tana, and an inexhaustible store of mineral
wealth, the same being capable of sup
porting Ja populace of one hundred
thousand people, and
Whereas, We maintain that when this
reservation is thrown open it should be for
the benefit and use of only such citizens
of the United States as desire to secure
homes for themselves aud families, and not
for the exclusive use of a grasping monop
oly, and
Whereas, Experience has taught that
such a lease would work injustice to the
Crow Indians themselves, as well as to the
white settlers of Eastern Montana, iu that
it would result in endless conflict between
the Indians and the cattle men, with all
the horrors of savage warfare; therefore
be it
Resolved, By the citizens of Yellowstone
county, in mass convention assembled and
representing all the people of Eastern Mon
tana, irrespective of party or business in
terest, that we earnestly protest against a
lease being made between the Crow In
dians and any person or persons having
for its object the exclusive use of the Crow
reservation. Further
Resolved, That we respectfully call on
the Hon. Henry M. Teller, Secretary of the
Interior, to prevent any such scheme from
being carried into effect, and further
Resolved, That we ask H. J. Armstrong,
agent for the Crow Indians, to stop any
s negotiations looking to a lease so far as he
may be able to do so, and further
Resolved, That we pledge ourselves to
one another to resist to the extent of our
I power by all lawful means any such dispo
sition of the Crow reservation.
