August 17. 1885. —The report relative to the Piegan Indian horse thieves, forwarded to and published in your issue of Thursday last was supposed to he a correct statement ot facts concerning the aflair, inasmuch as it was received from a ranchman direct from the portion of coun try in which these Indians were operat ing. So far as the number of stolen horses is concerned the report was correct. But the information furnished that the Indians had been killed is incorrect. The party of a of whites folhiwmg. anil who propose pur suing the Indians mto their reservation near Fort Assinalioine, bad a two hours' skirmish with the latter north of the Mus selshell, on Wednesday last but no casu alties résulté«! from the combat. Some fifteen hea«l of horses have, however, lieen recovered from the Indians. This news has just lieen received from a prominent stock man who reached here this morning, aud is our authority. The Water Ways CoBventicn. The sending of delegates to the Water Ways Convention at St. Paul on the :id of September will m-eupy the attention of tbe Helena Board of Trade at its next meeting. The importance of Helena lieing repre sented at this convention will lie seen at a glance when tbe steamboat navigation of the I'pper Missouri river is considered. The representation of this great interest to Montana in its projier light before such a body as will meet at St. Paul for the de velopment ot all water ways in the North west, will insure attention to the *2»M) miles of navigable waters above the Great Falls of the Missouri. It is known that this river at its »our«« (Three Forks carries more water than the Ohio at Pittsburg at the summer season. It is also known that a light draft boat of 14»l foot keel, 24 foot lloor, aud a lour foot hold ean, w ith little difficulty, navigate any where on the Mis souri from L lidia to the railroad bridge at Tow nsend and carry a good load of passen gers and freight. But in order that the channels of the Lpper Missouri may l»e clean*«! out aud shortened and wiug dams put in where nee«led, a proper delegation should lie selected by the Board of Trade to attend the Water Ways Conventi«Ri at St. 1'aul and ask their aid in securing from the general government adequate appro priations therefor. In fact the only way that this vast tract of navigable water way can be brought liefore the attention of Congress is to have its friends and dele gates in this important convention that meets on the .'t«i of September. It need* no seer to foresee that the steamboat navi gation o' the Upper Missouri w ill necessi tate a twelve mile railroad from Helena to connect with it at Stubbs' ferry or other «•«invenient point and thus open np for the great wheat lieh of the Missouri valley the Helena market for all their grains and pro duire. A steamer on the Upper Missouri will diaw every tourist that visits the National I'ark for a trip through the Gate of the Mountains aud thence to Great Falls, lienee the importance of Helena being represented at the Water Ways Con vention. A Typical Miner. Denn.* Ryan, miner, hotel builder, etc., leaves Helena on His retnrn to St. Faul I shortly. Back in the early sixties. Ryan, then a boy in. hfs teens, ran away from home, not liking his plodding farm life in Pennsylvania. He took ofl' to the Oil Regions, where all w as hustle. He soon got employment followed by interests in his parents through remittances which in generous snms reached "the old folks at home." in 1-6.5, Dennis started for Mon tana. by way of Salt 1-ake. Arriving late in the antnmn he decided to stop in the Mormon city over winter. The next spring he had his passage secured to Helena, hut toward Austin, Nevada, instead. In that State he had a varied experience, and ac cumulated hut little coin. After that he drifted Lack into Utah, and in later years won there the fortune he failed to "catch on to" farther west. The famous Horn , Silver mine was the property which paid him most. Out of it have come many millions and millions have been the profit share of Dennis. St. Paul, Mr. Ryan's home, has the grandest hotel in all the contracts for ties, hmilier, etc., in railroad ; : building. He made considerable money, and his whereabouts was iiist learned by the advice of "others prompted him to turn West. It cost upwards of 11,300,000 and was altogether baut with bis money. We want men like Ryan in Montana. He tried to come here twenty years ago. It is not too late for him to come now, and stay. Our gates are open and all beckon him to enter and to remain. Greetinc. Montana bas been honored this year with tbe presence of numbers of notable Iuuianians, among tbe latest being Mr. j Robert Samples, of Lafayette. Mr. Sample finds here in Helena friends and acquaint- | ances cordially glad to welcome bis visit, ' and bis stay in oar midst will prove altogether pleasant, we trust. On bis tieantifnl farms near tbe Qaeen City of tbe Wabash M r. Sample has bred and raised some of the best strains of cattle in America. His Hereford herds, from which the West and Northwest have acquired many of ^ their most valuable animals, are among the first of importance on this sid« of tbe water. It is hoped that the gentleman, seeing tbe interest this Territory takes in j bloode«i stack, will tarry for sufficieqt time to include the annual exhibition here and see something of the cattle produrt of Mon tana. We greet this Hoosier visitor wariu ly and hid him to the best of western hospitality. THE I>emocrats bave appointed a man in jail for postmaster.

Occasion offering, our reporter this morumg interviewed the Chinaman who was arrested last night for building the tire that occasioned the alarm between 12 and 1 oclock and caused the tire detri ment to turn out. 11« was the only occu pant of the city jail, aud at the time ot tbe re|»orter's visit sat on a beoch beiore a table amusing himself with a pack °* cards. He was questioned by the reporter i n regard to last night's incident, and de tailed tbe occurrence intelligently though not very intelligibly in Chinese English, which for the convenience of our leader* we render into the vernacular, ]| e b, H l)a ,„ e wafl Wong Lee; that he had no regular occupation, but turued bis hand to mining, gardening or washing ;lg occasion ottered. He was an inmate of t he frame house ou water street imine ,Rately in the rear of the city jail. He said that he was lying in bed asleep last „ight when the devil came to him ; at the t j,ue he felt very tired and "heap cold." His Satanic Maj«*sty was visible to his gaze, appearmg at ditlerent times as a lit tie d«ig, a cat and a little ls»y. He amused himself with tormenting aud pulling tbe hair of the frightened Chinaman, taking his position at intervals upon tbe knees or the breast of that individual. Most of the time he sat upon his breast, pulling his hair aud scratching his face, n«itwithstand ing which assertions no marks of Mephis tos claws couhl lie seen uptm his olive tinted visage. The devil, he said, kept constantly urging him t«i get up aud cook some liiv aud chickens for him, as he, the aforesaid kiug of Hades, was very hungry. This Lee did not want to «lo, hut the «levil became ao importuoata and exacting that the Celestial was lain to a«-ce«le to bis de mands. So rising from his coach Lee, ac compauied by his infernal visitor, repaired to the back yard and lighted a fire, over which he pre]iar«sl some ri««, which the sheolite devoured w-th great avidity. Then the fire liell rang, the firemen came upon the scene aud scared off the noctur nal feaoter. lore was then arrested and placed îa jail. When asked how the devil gained a«-«:ess to the room Lee said he came in ou the wind. He also said that he bad had such visitations liefore. and that <m the last oc casion, the Chinese New Years of 18*5, the devil had caught bold of him in the night and pulled someof his hair out by th* ro«ita; as corroborative e i«lence of w hich 'tatement lie showed the re|Kirter two or three bare spots njion his well hair«! head, which were Ditally devoid of the capillary threads. The Chinaman was evidently sincere m his story and firmly lielieves that he had a visit Irom the devil last night. The report comes from Pittsburg that the trade organizations are about to join in a petition to the President to call an extra session of Congress. They mistake the cause of the troubles from which we as a nation are suffering les-* than any other, and still more the remedy. When ever Congress is in session business is more disturlied thân at any other time. The administration has lieen so occupied with the pressure of office-seekers that they have had no time to think out any policy to recommend. Cleveland is now out in the woods and mountains «-atchmg trout, and he may catch an idea of what shall lie a policy for his administration. He should not he disturbed. We may be sure that all the causes of this widespread depres sion are not understood. Free trade Eng land sutlers even more than the countries where protection exists. It is likely if Congress meets the first thing they would do would lie to go to tinkering with the coinage. They would hardly dare to fool with the tanlf. But more than likely the principal time of both Houses would lie «levoted to offices. The Senate has a prospect of weeks of labor in investigating cases where officers have been suspende«! for ollensive partisanship. They will have to >n v r R f>k ft,e those who have l»een put in as well as those who have lieen put out. It is probable that it will Vie two years at least before the new administration will know what to reccommend. While elec tions are pending in New York and Ohio, Congressmen would not dare do mnch, if the J knew what It would be better in some respects if Congress were not to meet next December. Rarely bas »RJ relief OOOM from any action of Con gress, and with the two Houses of oppo site schools of politics, it is not to be ex pected that any agreement on policy could be reached speedily. Those interested in the finances of tbe Territory are inquiring whst progress is lieing made in the negotiations for having »"r prisoners taken care of outside the Territory. If New Y'ork will take them for the work they can d«i, or Dakota will take them at fifty cents a day, it looks a* If the« w *» * wide margin of saving that ought to be turned to advantage at once. Tbe argument that it is better to pay higher rates and bare the money apent in the Territory will not be appreciated by tbe tax payers, who know that the money paid for prisoners at tÿe penitentiary goes to tbe United States and does not benefit the people of tbe Territory. The interest of tbe many should be preferred to that of the few. It looks to us as a very unwise thing for tbe Knights of l^abor to inaugurate a strike at this time, when so many are out of employment. It will not be hard to fill the plaix-s ol those who »trike, aud a» for attempts to interfere with other* seek ing employment or to forcibly prevent tbe os ners ot |>ni|»erty from using it, there is no greater tyranuv in the world. We lie live that labor is just as much entitled to combine for mutual interest as rapilsJ. but it must observe proper limits to be eniitled to respect. _ -Blank l»ooks manu lactured, at reduce«! prices, and all bindery work on the short est noth«, at the Hekai.d bindery.

We want oar Congress n|en ^ j. now f ew | nt jj an ,, posse«* |,ear It.is to he regrette«! that the Indian Commission of the House could not have improved the opportunity to have acquainted themselves more fully with the situation in Montana. It mav he true that the situation in other Terri* !y a thir«l of Montana. We want them to know how utterly worthless this country is to the* niaians -«in«.-e the buffalo have gone. Mhfh proper effort we believe all the Indians in Montana could be -induced to remove to the In dian Territory, where they could more suives* fully practice agriculture, on which they must depend lor their tuture subsistence. The cattle men have been reqtiire<l t«i drive their sbick out of the Indian Territory and t hey are no more allowed to go upon other reservations. These ranges are neede«! for our cattle and they are «if no use in the woihl to the Indians. The Montana reservations are out of a |l proportion to the number of Indians, \ n ,j a^ain it is a poor place to have the Mackfoot reservation along the boundary |j ne> w ] iere the Canadian Indians are going hack ami forth all the time, nect— sarily interrupting any attempts to civilize them. Ik-fore any attempts to settle them in severalty a permanent location is necessary. Even the conditions necessary to lie gin the work of civilization are as vtt wanting. The situation as it i* at present is bad for the Indian and it is ha«l for the w hite men. Finding no buffalo on llieir reservation tbe Indians go where they can kill the white men's cattle. It leads to reprisals or bloodshed. It keeps t«> «ui the ragged edge of war all the time While we have little faith that Con gress could agree it|iou any legislation that would relieve the country ot its depression, there is no doubt that the atimiuistration has done and is doing much to aggravate the troubles. In the first plate the stop page in the payment of the public «iebt has ha«l a bail effect. Notw ithstanding the an nouncements of large reductions, it is known that there has not lieen a dollar of the principal of the public debt paid since the new administration came in. When a man stops paying his debts, creditors grow anxious aud suspicious, no matter what tlatteiiug stories he sets atloat. There has n>»t even been a call for a siugle Ismd. Tbe government is either hourding like the New York lianks or else deceiving the lieople. In hard times like these tbe government should lie payiug out money be and not luiardiug. .Manning seems to be w«irking with the New York banks to in crease the stringency ol the times.

And while there was still a door of escape Hi the idle me chanits» by going west aud taking up laud. Commissioner Sparks has thrown a wet sheet over this movement by suspending all land entries unless the emigrants would go south, where they must surrender their indepemlence if they would live in peace. So tar as the country «-an judge even Bay ard has paid more attention to finding a place for Keilev than to negotiate treaties by which our commerce couhl he extemled. And Vilas is fully occupied in trying to kill oil every steamship line with countries that want to trade * ith us. conce j, r# || ant | execote d bv those in We are not the least surprise«! that the Assembly of Knights ot Labor of Heltua, with time to iuvestigab- and opportunity for rational delilieration, should hy uuani* mon* action refuse to sanction the abhor rent lioycotting measures institute«! at Butte.
