James« J. Hill, the Kreut railroader and
millionaire ot Minnesota, who has spent
•a 1 <l»eu )iurti t i w IL- KL .1 _ _ a . a
•wveral slays here, took his departure for
St l'aui yesterday inorninK- While in the
i-ity he was the guest of C ol. C. A. Rroad
».iter. President of the Montana National
Rank, as were also Messrs. Ryan and Wil
der. prominent capitalists of Minnesota.
These Kentlemen are connected with some
important mininK enterprises in the T«m
Mile district, which was visited on Satur
day last. They have also interests in the
Neihart district, Meagher county, which
Messrs, liroauwater and Ryan started to
visit yesterday, expecting to be alisent
..Itout a week. A pleasant « hat with Mr.
Hill Saturday evening drew from that gen
tleman the information that his trip to the
Territory was of no particular signilicance
outside of a desire to see something more
ot the country than was afford«! by his
hasty journey ot a year ago, and
to look at some ol the mining properties
cast of the Main Range. With reticence
to railroad matters. u|«on which fie wraa
questioned, Mr. Hill said he wxsrperatmg
a system of transportation of alout 1,500
milei in Minnesota and Dakota, and be
had little thought at present of enteriig
uj>on rai'road projects further away. He
thought Montana a grand Territory, rich
,n mineral and other rwources, hut the
country wanted tuor* population and
greater development lietore multiplying
lines of railway. M*. Hill is a genial, de
lightful gentleman, ready, oil-hand in con
\ .-rs.it ion, a ad with a turn! of information
relatr cly inexhacstible in whatever chan
nels of discussion he may lie led. His
visit was curtai'ed somewhat owing to im
portant I Kismets engagements summoning
him to Minnesota. We trust he may come
again and often, and that letter oppor
tunities will l»e presented him in future for
forming an acquaintance with our people.
\ este rday'e l ire.
Yesterday morning, almut 1 o'clock, a
policeman on Main street discovered a lire
blazing up in the interior of the E X. L.
drygoods store. He immediately gave the
alarm by crying •'lire'' and turned it in to
the engine house from the Broadway and
Main street Imix. Under Sheriff Hathaway
and one of the HKBAI.D proprietors were
among the tirst on the scene, and entered
the front door of the store with a light
which was quickly extinguished by the
dense smoke. Not having anything at
bond with which to light the tlames, the
gentlemen repaired to the HkBALD otlice,
procured two Babcock lire extinguishers
belonging to that establishment, and re
turned to the E X. L. store, entering this
time bv the door in the rear of the build
ing. The tire was blazing up high in the
rear end of the store, but was soon subdued
by the streams from the two Babcock ex
tiuguishero. The lire department now
arrived and completed what the extin- I
guishers ha«l so well begun. The steam
engine had the first and only stream on
the fire, the hand engine having in some
unaccountable manner liecome divorced
from the hose cart and stood useless at the
foot of Rroadway. Happily it was not
neede«]. the stream from the steam engine
having entirely extinguished the fire.
How the fire originated is a mystery, no
out whom our reporter .juestioned seeming
to know how it started. There was a lamp
left burning in the rear ot the store at the
time of «losing up Saturday night, but
whether it was the cause of the fire is a
matter of conjecture. Not much ot the
stock was damaged by the tire, the princi
pal loss living caused by the water, with
which the place was flooded. The build
ing sustained little if any «lamage. H.
Ellis, the owner of the stock, estimated its
value at $30,000 when he first opened, but
much of it has lieen sold out sin« e then
The stock was insured for $10,000. The
prevailing opinion is that this fire was not
of incendiary origin, yet nothing definite
can Ik? ascertained as to how it started. 1 he
low has not yet lieen estimated.
Northern I'acltic Stock \nrd-.
The Northern Pacific railroad, having to
make such extensive shipments of live
-»took over their route, have established a
complete system of stock yards along the
line of their road from Washington lerri
tory to Minnesota. As being most inter
esting on account of their locality, we will
tirst make mention ot the yards at Helena.
These have lietn lately established near
the fair grounds, aliout a mile Irom the
city. These yards are compoee«l of four
pens 50x50 feet, two 50x100 lent, and one
1 U» >x 100 feet, affording accommodations
for fortv car loads or 1000 head of stock.
At Horse Plains, 201 miles, and one
day's run west of Helena, are similar yards
of the same capacity. At lioth plat es are
water tank«, each holding 7.000 gallons of
water, which are connected with each pen
by a plentiful system of pipes. Thus
water is provided in abuutlance. and teed
in plenty is also supplied. Cattle trains
unload their freight at these yards, and
usually lay over twelve hours for rest and
fee«!. By this system of resting aad feed
ing, stock are «-arrie«! through with the
least |wasihle loss and injury, and are in
as good condition when arriving at the end
of a 2,500 miles, run as they were at
East of here th«* company have similar
yards at Livingston. Glendive and Man
dan. making a complete chain of snch
stop-overs for stock from 1 ortland to St.
Paul. Not any too soon have these resting
places for stock lieen established, as the
Northern Pacific is this year shipping
enormous «juantitie» of stock over their
line. Trains loaded with « attie or horses
are passing Helena every «lay, carrying
their living freight from the great \N estern
bleeding grounds to Eastern markets, anti
bringing here from the East quantities of
blootltsl stock to a«!d to the great industry,
which is just growing out of ita infancy

Closed Their Engagement.
Saturday night the Orton Bros., who
have lieen managing the Skating Amphi
theatre since January, closed their en
gagement in Helena and threw up their
lease of the rink. Since the commence
ment of'heir management of the rink they
have conducted it upon first class business
principles, and they leave Helena with the
respect and confidence of all our business
men with whom they have come in con
tact. Mr. F. L. Orton, the busim-ss mana
ger of the firm, conducted the enterprise
in such a vigorous manner as to make it a
complete success. Upon leaving Helena
they wish to thank the public here for
their ]iatronagc of the riuk while under
their management.
The Orton Cornet Rand, which con
tributed so materially to their success and
became so popular in Heleua as a musical
organization, has entere«! ujion an engage
ment to play at the Pavilion rink in Rutte,
and we feel sure that they will be a great
attraction thear. They w ill probably lie
engaged to play at the fair grounds in
August, during the Territorial Fair, and
will prove a most acceptable acquisition if
so engaged. We wish them success in their
new engagement at Rutte.

The uew pastor. Rev. F. D. Kelsey,
preached on Sunday' to his people at the
Congregational church, on Renton avenue.
The sermon of the morning was on the
lack in a spiritual life germ. 2. They lack
in the development of a spiritual life germ.
In the evening an earnest sermon was
preached from the text: "Run ye to and
fro through the streets of Jerusalem, and
see now. an«l know, and seek in the broad
places thereof, it ye can find a man.' The
preacher's aim seeme«! to he to lav great
stress on the value of the highest type of
manhood, urge men unto it,and plead with
churoh people to accept the duty of pro
ducing the highest type of manhood as
theii espe« ial province. Appeal was also
made to every patriot and right-minded
citizen to join hands in this great work.

last »celt in a special ear, which has hern
fitted up for him, for Oregon and Wash- ,
ingteu Territory. He goes on the joint re
quest of the Northern Pacific and Oregon,
Railway and Navigation companies, and
will take a series of large views of tha
scenery along the Colombia river an«! on
Puget Sound. An artist ac ompanied him
as far as Livingston, where he departed to
take charge of the photographic studio in
the National Park at Mammoth Hot Spring*
recently estrblished by Mr. Haynes.
In making this tour we think Professor
Havnes could stop at points in Montana to
K«kk1 purpose and secure views of as fine
scenery as can lie found on the line 01 the
railroad. Perhaps there is no such river ,
s«-enery as the Columbia aflortls on the line i
of the roa«l in Montana, hut many a rare ,
and lieautiful piece of lake, river anil
mountain scenery is hidden behind the |
lofty ranges that border the track in West- j
tern Montana, and if the Professor would
now and theu drierge from the beaten
line of travel, we are confnlent he would ;
obtain many views of lieautiful landscajies
that would compare facorably with his
already fine collection.

The Yellowstone Give* I p its Dead.
A private dispatch was received this
morning hv one of our citizens stating that
the body of Allred O. Eiudsley had been
found in the Yellowstone river this morn
ing at Park City, a station on the North
ern Pacific railroad twenty-three miles
west of Billings. H. H. Mund, who is
executor of bis estate, immediately tele
graphed Mrs. Lm lsley, who is in the East,
of the oc currence. Mrs. I.indsley herself
is in a very delicate state of health, and it
is feared the shock will seriously affect
her. as this is the first notification of his
death she has received The coroner from
Billings will go to Park City immediately,
and an inquest on the body will be held as
soon as he arrives, probably this atternoon.
Mr. I.indsley, it will lie remembered, was
«Irowned in the Yellowstone on the tilth
ult. while out on a pleasure excursion with
some friends. Hopes of ever finding the
body had almost been given up, when
some fortuitous < ircumstance brought
aliout its recovery this morning.
Pleasant Places ol Kesort Near
The season for picnics and excursions
has lieen inaugurate«! in Helena, and num
bers of our citizens have already taken
short pleasure tri|w to various agreeable
resorts in the vicinity of Helena. lhe
Missouri river forms an objective point for
many of these picnics, ami a lew days ago
we had the pleasure of joining in an ex
cursion to Stuhl»' ferry. This is the near
est point on the river to Helena, the dis
tante being aliout twelve miles. The road
across the valley is good and easy of travel
ing. passing by many ol the finest larms
near Helena an*! lurnishing on«* cl the
nicest drives in this vicinity. At this sea
son of the year the neighborhood of Stuhl»
ferry is «fuite a resort for sportsmen,abountl
ing in water fowl, which fall an easy prey
to the hunter and his dogs. The scenery in
that vicinity is also very attractive, ami
the spot is very agreeable for pi«*nic pur
Reaver creek, some fourteen miles east
of Heleua on the old Rozeman roa«l, is an
other olii time and favorite resort for ex
cursionists from this city. It is an easy
two hours' drive from Helena, and is one
of the most attractive places for such pur
pose* within snch a short distance trom
town. Reautiful shaile and fine fishing
can Ik* found up the creek a few miles
from the old Rodgers House, and the spot
affording these two inducements «an tie
approached easily with teams.
Almost diametrically opposite in direc
tion trom Reaver creek, and to the w«-st ol
Helena, lies the Little Blackfoot, the name
itself formerly synonymous with all that
the nimrods and disciples ot Isaac Malton
«•ou Id desire. This resort is on the other
side of the range and twenty-two miles
from Helena. Though the waters ol the
Little Blackfoot have lieen almost daily
whipped by the line of the angler for the
past ten years, the stream still affords lair
s|iort, and «ontaius line trout. It can now
lie reai h«l by the railroad in a few short
hours, but at the place where the train
passes the stream has lieen well nigh fished
out, anil good sport can only be obtaine«l
by ascending or desccmling the creek some
miles from the track. An excursion to this
joint over the Northern Pacific, crossing
the range over the overhead line instead ot
by the tunnel, would, in our opinion, lie a
most enjoyable affair.
tuber famed and favorite places of re
sort for excursion purposes are numerous
in this vicinity, among which may be
mentioned the Prickly Pear canyon, the
Gate of the Mountains and Ten Mile, all of
which are within three or four hours drive
of Helena. Now that the weather is so
P««»»«. •"*>* **
<-•<»* *»>' diae-omloft, why do not the pro
moters of the eclipse excursion, or other
parti«» equally fond ot a pleasant picnic,
organize an excursion to some one ol the
places mention«! above ? Decoration Hay
will soon be here, ana would be a tittiug
opportunity for such an enterprise. \N e
throw out the hint.

Pastry Without Ratter.
The American pie has been .'.abjected
to more UDjust abuse from foreign writers
than any other of our distinctive products,
if we except the recent tirade against the
American bog. And yet we cannot say
that it has lieen altogether undeserved, be
cause of the villainous compound, thick,
hard and heavy, that Is too often made to
do duty as a "crust," and which by oourtesy
is «ailed "pastry.'' Light, tender, fiaky.
and digestible pie-crust and all kinds of
pastry can lie made most readily by the use
of Royal Baking Powder without any but
ter, or with half the usual portion, if pre
ferred, or with a small quantity of lard or
other shortening as desired. Pie-crust thus
made is mach more wholesome and digesti
ble, tiesides being more economical and
easier prepared. In addition to saving all
the butter, if desired, one-third the fionr is
also dispensed with, as the crust is rolled
that mach thiiner. the leavening qualities
of the Royal Jaking Powder swelling it to
the re<|Uisite thickness. If drippings or
lard be nsed '.lie Royal Baking Powder re
moves all unpleasant taste, rendering the
crust as sho*t, sweet and pleasant as if
made trom the finest butter. Those who
: know the appetizing «qualities of the genu
ine home-male American pie will rejoice
that by the a,d of Royal Baking Powder
in the pastrj it can be made «inite as di
! gestible as it is delicious.

An individual named Bill Richards, a
Cornisbman. took aboard considerable corn

horseback ride, took the post of honor up
on a zayuse this afternoon and started in
for his ride. Up and down Broadway, oc

Strongly objected to walking up the hill
and made the sheriffs all but carry him.
Falling on the sidewalk in front of the
Merchants' hotel he refused to go further
and lay there apparently intending to
sump on the sjmt for an intlefinite spac-e of
time. But the persuasions of the sheritl
and the adjustment of steel bracelets upon
his wrists, finally induced him to let his
assistants help him up and carry him ofl'
to jail. He was lodged in the "cooler as
"drunk as a lord'' and still protesting
against this summary disposition of him

window full of Montana vegetables t«>-day,
th«. product of the mineral farm of the
Montana Company ( limited s called the
Drum Lumraan. The vegetables in ques

of gold and silver in the proportion of one

A Visit to Rozeman.
Governor Carpenter yesterday spent a
pleasant hotr at Rozeman, to which point (
on the Northern l'a' ifiche proceeded Tues
day mornitg to meet his family. The

he was most favorably impressed with
Gallatin's county seat. "I was pleasantly
surprised," he remarked, "with the sub
stantial and attractive appearance of the
town, its beautiful location and magnifi
cent mountain and valley surroundings. I
am going to visit that town again and stay
longer. It has many intelligent, courteous
and enterprjing citizens—a splendid nu
cleus, as I conceive, for a prosperous com
munity of ten thousand people."
