From the Daily Herald of May 7 « ON Ml RI*H Y*S HONKS. A Skeleton Found in an Alley. Ninppo*od to bi' lie Tliîil ol kprraHo. the Noted It was whispered a lew days in Helena that a skeleton had I»een discovered in one of the alleys in the city, and specu lation was rile as to who the unfortunate could lie whose bone* were thus lying ex |x»ed m a public thoroughlare. Not wish ing to promulgate such startling news un til Jit was proven as a fact a HERALD re porter. to whose ears the whisper of the mysterious event came some days ago, has hided his time until now he has traced the rumor to an authentic source and learned that the rej*>rt was well founded and true. This morning a gentleman of unquestiona ble veracity told him that last week the bone* of a man hail l»een found in a i-er tain spot, which fact was duly ascertained and reported to the Hoard of Health. The Hoard immediately acted upon the infor mation. and a short time afterwards the liones were removed, when, where and by whom, our rei»orter was unable to learn. This much is certain, that the l»ones were unquestionably those of a human being ; were dis* ox ereil in a certain plaie in this city, and were removed after the knowledge of their discovery came to the Hoard o! Health. Who could have been the unfortunate }»eing whose l*one* were thus deprived of burial and exposed to the public gaze, can not l»e ascertained, but various are the suppositions tloating around. One gen tleman told the reporter that it was strong ly supposed that the »»ones fonml were those which carried the »»oily of the noto rious Con Murphy when alive, whose corpse had l»een disinterred and put to va rious uses. However, this is ouly sujqtosi tion, and has not l»een confirmed. The matter, which has lieen kept very quiet, stands thus yet. and particulars tur ther than the fact that human »sines were found in the city last week anil were af terwards removed, cannot »s* elecited. Further light will no doubt Is* thrown on the subject liefere long. The 1.iind Slide m the West. It will be remem»K*red that trains trout the west the early part of this week were some tifteen hours late in reaching Helena. The cause of this delay was a large lard slide, which occurred last Monday two miles east of Thompson Falls, on the Northern Pacific railroad. The track here rau along the Clarkes fork river, and when the slide took place 750 feet of road »*•11 and track gave way and slid into that river. The company knew the dangerous character of the place, and at the time ol the accident hail men working a steam shovel engaged in cutting away the threat ening bank. Fortunately they were not in the immediate vicinity when the slide occurred, and no one was injured. A special train, with secction gangs and l»ridge crews was sent out from Missoula upon the receipt of the news to repair the track. Ore hundred and thirty men were put to work upon grading a new road lied, and the track is now in working order again. Passengers from »>oth directions were transferred at the scene ot the slide and train- started from liotli sides. This was the most extensive and destructive land slide that has occurred for some time on the Northern Pacific, and yet, through the enterprise of the coupMy in repairing damages and making up new trains, a fifteen hours' delay was the most exten sive experienced on account ot the accident. Iiive-tiuntion ot tin* Independent. It is noticed that the trustees ot the ndependent Publishing Company have »een summoned to a special meeting ap Kunteil for Saturday, May Kith, at K »'clock p. m. Inquiry as to the purport if the call elicits the information that mat ers of considerable eonsequeni-e to stock aiders are to »»e investigated. Among ither things the question of the lial»ility ,f individual shareholders for the debts of he concern, it is said, will occupy a good leal ol prominent^. To what extent the onipany has l»e«ouie involved is a mystery o nutuliers of those interested, who, tor a ong time, have had no insight into the inaneial conduct ot the outfit. The tnniuil »»usiness statement called for by its trtieles of ineorjioration has »s en neglected >r suppressed, anil the absence of any Knowledge of the financial condition of he company is said to have spread alarm imoug various share holders, whose fears ire that they may »>« held accountable for ill accumulated claims against theestab isbiuent. It is probable that another re irgauization of the company will result from the special meeting referred to. Another stable Gone. last night shortly »»efore î» o'clock the tower sounded another alarm, and lor resi dents of the east side of the city it needed »*ut a glance out the door to tell that this time it was no false alarm. The sky was illuminated for a great distance by the dames and the blaze had attained its great est height by the time the alarm was -»minded. No striking of the ward was necessary to pilot the firemen to the scene of the tire, and in a short time citizens and liremeu in great unrulier* congregated at the point on I>avis street l»etwe<.'n Hroad way aud Hreckenridge, where the lire was raging. The tire 1»roke ont in a concrete stable owned l>y l»r. Atchison, and spread . .her thau that building. T" •> »mises »»elouging to Mr. Kellogg were in the stable at the time, but l»oth were rescued, one, however, sustaining some severe »»urns be fore he was taken ont. Hy the time the engines got their streams on the fire the stable was badly burned, but the efforts of the liremen saved the ad joining premises anil prevented further damage to the building. It is almost need less to say that this blaze was also sturted by an incendiary. From th« Dai Iv Herald of May * r ii h F ni:>n> conflagk v IION. \ I nsuecessful Attempt ol ■■ Incendiary to Fire Mark»* and Pärchen»* Building*» Probably the most daring attempt yet made by the incendiary to lire buildings was made last night in the second story of Marks' building on Main street, the second door south of H road way. fbc offices of secretary Tooker and other rooms used by him occupy the whole of the second floor of the building except the hall, which runs nearly the length of the house adjoining Pärchens building, communicating there with by a door at the east end. Next to this door is one through the east wall, opening upon a veranda leading to Jackson street, and through which the blaze was first seen »>y Will Crittenden from the veranda The wood closet, a small room jiartition ed off from the Secretary's office and hav ing an only door owning into the hall, was the place selected to start the tire. At the other end of the hall is a store room, where the coal oil for the use of the office is kept. Hoth rooms were open, and the incendiary was evidently aware of the fact and fa miliar with the premises, as is proved by his actions. .Shortly »»efore nine o'clock Clyde Tookor and k w <> or three other young men left the Secretary's office, and noticed nothing wrong al»out the premises. After they left the incendiary entered the store room, took out the can containing the coal oil, rejiaired to the wood closet, emptied its contents upue the tire wood, set it ablaze, shut the door aud retired as mysteriously as he came. The blaze most have lieen discovered almost immediately after it was kindled, as it was extinguished »»efore any great damage was done. Mr. Crittenden, seeing the »»laze trom the veranda, ran down Hroadway and gave the alarm. Under Sheriff Hathaway and Deputy Evans, the first whom Critten den met, ran immediately up stairs to the lire, turning in tlie alarm from the l»ox at the corner of Broadway and Main street »»efore doing so. I pon arriving at the wood ell»set Evans found the door blockaded »>y the wood, which had either fallen against it or »»ecu piled ttiere by the incendiary, bursting oj**u the door they soon extin guished the flames with a few buckets of water, obtained from a hydrant in the hall, before it was quite extinguished the steam engine was ready for lmsiness. but was fortunately not needed. The wood was considerably charred aud the walls and ceiling liadly smoked. »>ut further than that aud the »»reaking of the door no dam age was done. The sheriffs and assistants got in timely work and deserve the thanks of the ow ners of the »»uildings accordingly. Had the lire once olitaineil headway it would have been a very difficult matter to extinguish it. aud tlie I'lipning incendiary selected a good place for the incipiency of a destructive conflagration. At but Shull He Do ? The crank, fool or demon who has »>een applying the torch of the incendiary to so many of our »»uildings, and who has suc ceeded in destroying many valuable pieces of property in our city since the »»eginuing of the year, would seem to possess a charm or amulet that protects him effectually against discovery ; but as the pi-ople of this day are little inclined to l»elieve in such a cause for his immunity from dis covery, we must come to the conclusion that out "tire »>ug" uses extreme caution in his dia)*oiical undertakings, occupies only a few moments in applying his torch, and selects a time for perpetrating his outrages when there is the least possible chance for ( interruption—in short, that he has reduced j hi* mode of operations to a tine point and effects the desired result with the least pos sible risk to himself. Such being the case we can not consider the incendiary as a i crank or an iml»ecile l»ut must rather at triliute to him average intelligent** and sanity. With such a man. cunning in his arrangements and crafty in his attempts, we l»elie\e our oilicers have to do; and the , fact that he has thus far snccessfnlly elud ed all attempts at discovery is another proof that he is possessed of ordinary if not over-average intelligent*:. In the lace of these facts it would seem that there is no protection against further ravages of the fire fiend, and the question now is how to foil the future attempts of the incendiary. The blaze of last night shows that he will attempt to burn any thing and will set lire to lmsiness houses or residences as well as stables or sheds. If there is not something done to check his audacity our citizens will some day turn out to a fire that will destroy thou sands of dollars worth of property ; and the experiences that Helena has had in this line is sufficient to warrant her citi zens in taking every means in their power to avert a similar catastrophe in future. I'niversity Mas* Meeting. A mass meeting will be held in Har monia Hall, Hroadway, on Friday evening. May 15th. at rt o'clock, to consider the question of locating a university in Helena.

A young lady the other night gave the following advice to a young man in refer ence to the use of big wonls: In promul gating your esoteric cogitations, or articu lating your superficial sentimentalities and philosophical, psychological observa tions, beware of platitudinous ponderosity. Let your conversational communications possess a rarified conciseness, a compact coinprehensibleness. a coalment consis tency and a concatenated cogency. Es chew all conglomerations of Hâtaient garrulity and jejune l»al*blement. fr osa It* Daily Hei aid of May S. The Helena I Diversity. A call aud a programme tor amass meet ing in Harmonia Hall on the evening of the 15th inst., to consider the question of founding a university at Helena, has al ready appeared in the columns of our daily pajiers. Said announcement tanned the slumlieting spark to a blaze of joy in the »»osoni of some of our citizens, w ho have l»eon anxiously looking for the dawn of that glad day when the privileges of a higher education can lie r-cured without sending their sons and daughters abroad. The average Montanian has a Territorial pride and is interested in. and anxious for, the success of our great and crowing 1 commonwealth, and disdains to lie depend ent upon neigh»»oring States for educa tional privileges. Helena's aliility to prop erly found such an institution of learning will not l»e questioned. When once lo cated, it »teeomes a source of perpetual financial endowment to the city. The location of such a university at Syracuse, New York, has nearly or quite doul»leil the population, aud is the means of throwing into circulation in that city hundreds of thousands of dollars annually. Money in vested in a university brings in great financial returns. The city of Huron.' in Dakota, offered £500,(MX) last year, as a bid for the location of such a university, 'lhe university to l»e located will consist ol a group of colleges, founded on the broadest and most littéral educational plans, will consist of a college of arts, science, classics, agriculture, commercial »»usiness. law. medicine, and will have its conservatory of music, cabinet, gymnazium, its libraries, j and everything required for tlie pursuit of all studies mentioned in the modern uni- I versity eurriulum. Nach an institution \ will develop on through the coming 1 centuries, gather about her wealth, in tellectual brilliancy, scientific and classical lore, mold and foster the social iutluences, 1 inspire to greater activity auil elevate the moral standard of tliisgreat commonwealth. If the university is located here it will make Helena a centre ot financial and in tellectual power. Immediately locations for residences will be secured »>y tliose who j reside in our fertile valleys; property will > rise in value aud »»usiness circles will »>e lively. From Helena will eminate a thousand financial lines which will beconverted into as many channels for tlie iutlux ol capital, which will make a perpetual endowment to our city. Likewise a thousand intel lectual lines pulsating with scientific, clas sical and professional knowledge will How out to illumine our broad country, and shine afar from our glistening peaks, inspir ing young, throliing hearts to turn their feet iato the paths of knowledge, and spur them till they reach the highest ty|»e of noble manhood and womanhood. I niv ersi ties make cities and States immortal and put intrinsic value in literature. Grecian literature is the product, not the spontan eous genius, »>ut of thorough discipline secured at the Athenian university, where Zeno, Aristotle and Plato were professors. In the palmy days of Greece, in her sc! ools she taught geometry, physics, tactics, morals, history, poetry, statuary, music, painting, elocution and the arts. It was this great university at Athens that gave classical honors to the town and literary renown to the State. .Hit) Dav at Philipsbarg. On the evening of the 1st of May an old fashioned May festival was held at I'hilipsbnrg in real old fashioned style. The party was held under the auspices of the Ltdies Aid Society of the M. E. church, of which Kev. F. Flawith is p.ts tor. The town hall was secured for the purnose and was elaborately decorated for the occasion ; und be fore the evening ex ercises were commenced it was well crowded. The festivities of the evening l»egan with the election of the May tjueen, which was superintended by Messrs. F. D. Hrowu aud J. I*. Hinds. The election re sulted in the choice of Miss Katie Hinds for i t »ueen aud Mr. Kingley for King. A procession w as then formell and marched around the hall, headed by the King aud tjueen, to the straius of General Grant's march. After the procession the remainder of the ev ening was spent in playing games, discussing refreshments, etc. The com pany was favored with music by Mrs. Dodna, Dora Kroger and Eva Leaveaa. The May party was a decided success and enjoyed by all. Chinese Graves. The peculiarity with which Chinese bury their dead and furnish the graves of de parted friends, are not unknown to the citizens of Helena, who have seen them while performing these rites; yet their cu rious ideas respecting the neeils of dej»art ed spirits always furnish "food for medi tation" and recall to mind the practices formerly in vogue among some tril»es of American Indians. The weapons and im plements of the chase with which I jo al ways supplied the tombs of departed braves is supplemented with the Chinese by provisions and eatables placed upon the graves to nourish the souls of the deceased on their long journey, which the C elestials believe every one has to make after death. One illustration of this curious custom has lately )>een made in Anaconda. On the graves of the Chinamen who were killed some time since liy an explosion, the friends of the deceased have placed a roast chicken for each, a piece of roast pork, some cooked ! rice and a »»ottle of water. The Kt riete says, in speaking of the subject ; "All the personal effects of the dead Chinaman were burned at the grave, and each day the graves are visited by friends to see wheth er the suirits of the departed have eaten . what was left for them." With Mn* bright summer days comes the 1 desire for light and seasonable wearing ap parel. liuniliert A Keunett can meet the demand for nnythiug in the line of men's luruishings. Their stock of straw hats is full and complete, from cheap palm-leaf to finest 1'anama. In underwear, their assort ment is extensive in medium and light weights. j j : j TOWN AND TEBBITOB There have >»een several mineral dis coveries near Hozeman this week. The store to l»e erected on Hroadway by C. P. Van Wart is to l*e a two-story brick, 35x60. The frost on the night of the 7tb inst did considerable damage to plants aud dowers in and at»out the city. The total loss by the recent fire at Miles City turns out to »>e $60.000. which is covered by insurance to the extent ol $30,060. Another deposit of Cu*nr d'Alene gold to the amount of $6,000 was made in the As- , say ofiiee this morning by the First Na- , tional Hank. A daily stage line will soon be operated Itetween Anaconda and Philipsbnrg. by the way, the former place claims to be the third city in size in the Territory. B. A. Hancock yesterday sold to H. W. ! Child fourteen head of thoroughbred < ■allo way cows and three bulls of the same stock, the price being $4(xi per head. The output of the Drum I.ummon mine for April was $H7,000, an increase of $5,000 over the preceding month. The Inde pendent was only $2,000 out of ;he way. Fred. P. Johnson, the man who killed Neil I.ane a short time since in Bozeman, was discharged by the Court, who could find "no probable cause for believing him • guilty.'' —A. C. Van I »oreii returned from the C»i ur d'Alene country this morning. He reports times rather dull at Murray, aud a scarcity of water there for miniug pur poses. The trustees of the White Sulphur Springs school district have made prepara tions lor the immediate construction of a school house. Plans and specifications are l»eing prepared aud the foundation is to be laid this mouth. The majority of those who were recently burnt out in Hillings and Miles City In tend to put up brick houses in place of the old frame buildings.

Mr. Esler will establish sampling anil testiug works iu Helena, aud a* he is thoroughly vetted iu all mineral matters, will no doubt make a success ol this new enterprise. The Hutte Inter-Mountain has inlbrma tion to the effect that the six-day skating race in New York will come off this month des} ite the statements to the contrary by the Pittite tig-.et tr.

A young man named Elisha Cook, and only 27 years of age, was killed last Satur day iu a corral at New Chicago while sort ing out stock. He was knocked down by one of the animals anil trampled upon by several, sustaining such severe injuries that be died in a few days. The passenger department of the North ern Pacific has arranged with the Illinois Central for an excursion train to the Yel lowstone Park and the Pacific roast. The excursion train, with fully 75 or 100 ex cursionists altoard. will leave St. Paul July 10th. Fully 50 of the excursionists will go through to the cost. Grand Master J. W. Kinsley and Deputy Supreme Commander Wm. Zastrow, A. O. U. W., have just returned from the West Sid*, where they have established lodges. The former instituted a new lodge at Stevensville with I'onrteen charter mem bers, and the latter a legion of S. K., A. O. U. W„ at Missoula with twenty-live char ter members. The Northern Pacific has adopted the Westinghouse signal for stopping trains. It has now superseded the old system of 1*11 ropes entirely. It is an air signal aud operated similarly to the air »»rake. A pipe runs through all the cars and is con nected with u small whistle in the engine cab, which can be son need by the con ductor from any part of the train. butte is greatly pestered by a large uumlier of tramps and vagrants, who are continually Itegging for money, and when it is not given promptly they frequently take it by force. Seven of such ilk were arrested yesterday and ordered to leave the city. It is supposed they are coming to Helena, but we warn them otf. Such "huskies" are not tolerated here to any great extent. Indians are reaping some good from the Miles City fire. Tlie YelUncMone Journal says ; "Squaws were busy yesterday hunt ing among the debris of Brandenburg & Van Gasken's butcher shop for pieces of charred meat. The seirch resulted in many prizes being secured « among other* the not overdone carcass of a dog ■ w hich were triumphantly »»orne away io grace the festive board.'* The six-year old son of Charles Hage man was liadly Imrneil with powder last Wednesday. He and another boy while playing found a can containing powder, and not knowing its dangerous character, one ot the boys struck a match anil put it in the can, when it exploded, badly burn ing the little fellow about the head. One of his eyes is badly scorched, but no serions consequences are anticipated. The l»oy is doing nicely nnder the treatment of Dr. Eckles. Frank L. Sizer, w ho was on the incom ing Wickes train yesterday, reports that that train was stopped near Clancy by a threaten**! washout. The water from a mining ditch had broken j loose and commenced to dam tip against j the tra«k. Men got out of the train and dug : another channel for the water, allowing it to resume its former course through the j culvert under the track. A few minutes work sufficed to put the water again in its proper place and the train proceeded. Had it not l>een discovered and remedied by the train men a portion of the track would undoubtedly have lieen washed away. ' ' PERSONAL. J. G. Anceuy, of Moreland, is iu the city. — H.
