This morning alunit 10::» o'clock a «pan
vi young horse* belonging to Ron* Deegan
hitched to a «lift wagon started from his
, m avatiou on Rodney street and came into
the head of Rrcadway and dashed down
■ hat street at a frightful speed, the hind
wheels of the wagon playing zizzag. some*
: mes upside down and sometimes right
*.ile up, and finally breaking from their
coupling and remaining in front of the
Merchants Hotel. The frightened horses
then gained their greatest momentum
with the front wheels, which sometimes
■untied as high as their backs, until they
ame to a pile of titulier in front of the
Masonic Temple, which they leaped with
at a scratch, but broke the off wheel into
uder*. With one wheel, axletree and
tongue, the horses sped on with madeued
ary until they turned north into Main
'tuet, where they struck two teams and
were sandwidled into one of them. For
tunatelr they were stop|ied without any
njury to the horses themselves or those
they came into contact with. The damage
was only to the wagon, which will require
Lew front wheels. It has got so now that
the cry of clear the track on Broadway
rentes almost the same terror as the
darin of the bell on the watch tower.
When .some valuable life is lost by a run
away then probably there will lie some
law to prescribe a heavy (lenalty for every
case ot runaway, no matter from what
llumrstnke Mining Company nt
Lend Citv, Dukotit.
The superintendent, T. G. Grier, in liis
report of the operations and receipts and
disbursements of this celebrated mine at
Read City, Dakota Territory, shows the
amount received from June 1, 1881, to
June 1, 1 to lie $1.3 K 8.5fi8.35, and the
amount expended $7 It» ,597. *9. Monthly
dividends were paid in that time of $343,
750. Cash on haud, $298,238.48, which is
a very satisfactory showing indeed. The
superintendent concludes his annual re
nnt to the president of the company by
«tying: "Seeing, then, that the Home
stake mills have lieen running for over six
years upon ore taken from aliove the 300
foot level, we can see no reason why the
mine should not pay handsomely for sev
eral years to come, inasmuch as the quality
if the ore lielow is quite equal to that
;-.m allow. The ore ,n sight to
lay may lie placed at 9«»4,o:54 tons—four
years' supply. "
Arrests in the l*urk.
Arrests in the l*urk.
It appears, that Mean. Wylie and Koch,
I» ut citizens of Bozeman, are not
the only victims plucked by the I'ark's
;**tty officials this season. It will be re
niemliered that both these gentlemen were
arrested and mulcted to a considerable
amount on the charge of building a fire
able to endanger the grass and timber.
A later case heard from is that ot Judge
l'ayson, an Illinois Congressman, who was
taken in ' on a similar charge and suh
ected to a tine of $<»0 and $12 costs. Fay
son refused to pay. appealed to the District
Court, and demanded a transcript of the
Justice, who then offered to settle for $1
tine and $l costs; hut the Congressman
leclined this overture, lieing determined
to test the case elsewhere. He holds that
•be Park is under a national jurisdiction,
and that a Justice of Wyoming had no
right to hear the case. It is said that
thtse arrests are tricks of the constables to
extort money, they getting half the money.
Attempted Suicide.
On Wednesdtiy of last week at Fire
lole Basin, in the National I'ark, a son of
Gen. O. O. Howard, smitten with the
( harms of a young lady tourist, attempted
suicide by shooting himself in the breast
because his attach ment was not reciprocated.
Young Howard is aliout twenty years old,
and for some time has lieen with Lieut.
Kingman. The shot was first thought to
have l»een accidental, but on the following
day Howard confessed the facts. The
wound indicted is reported serious hut not
rccessarily fatal. The lady, who had never
More met Howard, is on her return East
with the party w ith which she had made
the Bark tour.

The preliminaries to the organization are
now a Ik >ut complete, and the \oung Mens
Christian Association of Helena is evidently
a fixture. Donations of no small conse
nt--ice in liooks for the library, fixtures
and furniture for the rooms, as well as
papers and periodicals, have lieen liberally
made by the citizens of Helena, and what
i* more encouraging aunual subscriptions
m sums from $25 to $100, by many lead
ing business men of the city, have given
the measure a permanency of outlook
. , . , . »
which it could gam from no other source.
1 he apartments occupied hy this associ
at ion are the four commodious and well
l.gbted rooms over Fred Gamer's store.
These have lieen nicely furnished with
chairs and tallies, are carpeted neatly and
tastefully and lighted with gas. All this
Las lieen done ' at quite an expense, but
when the solicitors for subscriptions shall
ha\e gone the rounds it is not feared that
the matter will fall heavily upon auy one
The Association held an important meet-
ing last night in their hall, at which,
among other things done, a constitution,
carefully drawn up and closely examined

The first Monday in »Septem lier of each
year is fixed u|K>n by the constitution for
annual business. Accordingly the associ-
ation will meet next Monday night, at

—The city of Helena is represented at

Promth. I«aflv Herald of Keptcml-er 1.
I he Waterways Convention nt St.
I u U I nnd the I pper .Hinoun
i be city of Helena will be represented
at the M aterways convention which meets
at St. Paul on Thursday by four competent
and able delegates, appointed by the
Mayor and Helena Hoard of Trade. The
steamlioat navigation of the Missouri river
iri-m (>reat falls to Townsend, a distance
o! „*<M I miles, is only exceeded in import
ance to Helena by the Northern Pacific
railroad itself, which has come so near our
own doors, bringing trade and commerce
from afar from l»oth east and west. That
the upper Missouri, which runs within
twelve miles ol Helena, cau be made navi
gable by steamlioat* has been clearly
demonstrated by the able report of Mr.
1 boms 1*. Rolierts, civil engineer of a re
connoisatu-e made by him in 1872 from
Three Forks to the Great Falls, and by
the many who have examined the upper
river throughout its whole length. Since
Mr. i.ohertn report the United States gov
ernment has sfient a Congressional appro
priation under the direction of competent
engineers of over twenty thousand dol
lars in improving the river by wing dams
and clearing chutes at the Bear Tooth and
Hall-hreed rapids. At the present time
the season of lowest water) the river is
navigable above the Great Falls for light
draught Isiats, but in order to facilitate
traffic in passengers and freight, and that
there lie no delay in making a through
trip, it will lie necessary to sjiend consider
. ______ _ ,
able more money m concentrating the
water wing dams and deeiicning the chan
uels by (»lowing out rocks, as has lieen
done at the two rapids liefore mentioned.
This can lie more equitably done by the
aid of the government than by private en
terprise, liecause this part of the river for
200 miles is as much of a national high
way as any other river in the United
States and of equal importance, mile for
mile, with any c*her not immediately at
the sea coast. Our delegates, who all know
that this ]iart of the great Mis
souri ]ienetrates a virgin country
where inexhaustible quantities of coal
ar»«J the precious metals lie waiting de
velopment ami trans|»ortation. will bring
these matters prominently liefore the con
vention and secure for this water way,
whose chanels and placid pools lead to tLe
lieautiful and inaccessible canyons high up
>» where no steamer i.as
''lrned a wheel or blown a whistle, and
his tour from Wonder'and, saying, as he
closes his remarkable journey, that there
is no wouder of ull geyser land that in
spires the same degree of admiration and
awe as the Gates of the Mountains on the
Upper Missouri. By the convenience of
this river navigation the tarmers in the
wheat Wit of the Missouri valley will lie
enabled to transport their grains to a near
market at Helena. The great lumber :
forest* on the river will lie floated to mar
ket when the navigation is improved, and j
a general travel will he inaugurated for
passengers from all parts of Mortana and
the world, who will not have done all the
routes of travel until they have navigated
the waters of the Upper Missouri, 5, 01»
miles Irani the sea.
In order to avoid delay at Half Breed
Rapids a lock and dam will lie necessary
to facilitate quick transit and insure corn
where the American tourist will complete
.. 1
plete safety in navigation. But no one
knows the requirements and advantages !
of the steamboat navigation of the Upper
Missouri better than doe* each of out dele
gates to the Water Ways Convention, and
to these we look with confiding exjiecta
tions for our justice and our cause.
.Murnage ot Miss Ernestine Kicker.
It is with pleasure that we announce
the marriage of Miss Ernestine Ricker, the
oldest daughter of Mrs. J. C. Ricker, of
Helena, which took place at Manchester,
N. H., on the :»th of August Miss Ricker
was educated at Manchester, where her
mother resided .for a number of years lie
lore her return to Helena, and where she
no doubt met her intended busliand. Miss
Kicker was marriedliy the Rev. Mr. Seiden,
at the residence of the groom's parents, to
Mr. Charles G. Dodge, on Sunday, August
30,(1885. The Hek.\i.ii joins the many

.Minnesota State Fair.
The sample of white Knglish sheaf oats
exhibited at the late Territorial Fair at
Helena by 11. F. I.idolpb, and which stood
*ix feet high, without irrigation, and
weighed fifty |K>unds to the bushel, was
to-day presented to the Northern Pacific
Railway Company for their exhibition at
«th, ;#th, 10th. 11th and 12th. That is, the
Minnesota State Fair is to lie held at the
ahove time on grounds Rested mid way
between the two great cities of St. Paul
and Minneapolis, and it .vould lie danger
ous to say that the Fair \a to lie held at
either of these phenomenal places. But as
the State has struck the happy medium
for its annnal exhibitions midway between
these two imperial cities the emulation
lietween them will continue the laudable
strife at the coming Fair and for the mas
tery at the exhibition, as it has continued in
everything else for a score of years. The
location of the Fair grounds will no doubt
prosper both cities and produce au outpour
of exhibitors and visitors such as bave
never before lieen seen at a Fair in the
Northwest. The management expects to
draw contributions from other States and
} zrritories, and for the purpose of adding
excellem-e to their cattle exhibit have
offered a special premium of $5<» for the
best herd of Montana steers (cattle). The
liberal offer of $25,000 in premiums and
$15,IM» in purses in the races will certainly
lie the great attraction that will crowd
their grounds with visitors, exhibitors,
stock men und horse men. Montana will
. no donbt lie well represented there, for the
i ^ ^
a^ ^ mtended ' .or' the" I
men ol the Territory believe that all
they have to do is to send one of their
marketable herds to the Minnesota Fair to
carry off the blue rihlion and the prize of
$500. If it were possible for our ranchmen
to send in a fresh condition such (lotatoo*
vegetables, etc., as are raised in any of
the Rileys of Montana they too would
have as little difficulty
off the prizes for the
the soil as the cattle men would
in taking those offered for the pro
duct of the ranges. Already samples of
grain have lieen sent from Lewis ami
Clarke county through the munificence of
the Northern Vacille railroad, which oilers
to trans|iort free ofeharge any agricultural
products that are intended for their exhibit
at the Minnesota Fair from any place
along their line. There is time yet for
Montana exhibitors to send in their pro
which begins on the 7th inst. (next Mon
in carrying
products of
Northern Pacific railroad at Helena. H. F. !
Lidolph. J. G. Partridge and B. Reeves, of
this county, have sent samples of grain, j
« , , ...»
day), to A. L. »Stokes, general agent of the
which will be exhibited in the general dis
play of the Northern Pacific Railroad
Company in Minnesota. If our horsemen
canot get there with their tlyers and trot
ters, they can send their record of the
time made on the Helena race track last
week as a suggestion as to what they
could do if they could g"t there.
A Mrll Dcscn cd I'nrdon.
It happens in a very patpahle light that
the first pardon grunted hy Governor
Hauser to-day for the relief William Law
rence, who was convicted over two year*
ago in Custer county, when that county
was attached to this district for judicial
purposes, was a well deserved oue of a
man who was suffering the penalty of a
! crime he never committed,
It " ill 1» remembered that Lawreoee
wa» » convicted ol stealing ten head ol
*h«ep ladongiDg to George Meyers ujion
the testimony of two men in the employ
of Meyers, whose interest it was to account
for the sheep missing from the llock they
were attending. The pardon is granted
upon the letter of the owner of the sheep,
who certifies that he is convinced that the '
sheep strayed away from th-» flock and
were lost, not stolen.
Another strong and ample reason tor the
pardon, is the ]»etition ot Chief Justice
Wade, who heard the case, and Col. J. A.
Johnston, then Attorney General, who
prosecuted it, who say that the doubts
which existed m their minds at the time
owing to the nature of the testimony and
the character of the men who gave it, are
sufficient to warrant them in recommend
ing i^awrence for Executive Clemency. It
turns out also that the two witnesses, one
of whom has since been sent to the peni
tentiary, were actuated by an old grudge
to gratify their vengeance upon poor
Lawrence, and also to shield themselves
from any blame for the loss of the sheep.
Even at the time of triai, on account of the
grave doubts in the case, it were better
that ninety-nine gnilty should escape than
one innocent man should suffer. The par
don is therefore justified by the facts in
the case and the law both human and di
Knights Templar Encampment.
Helena Commandery of Knights Tem-
plar have resolved upon a field encamp-
ment of two days this year, and have
selected Elliston, on the Northern Pacific
railroad, as the place, and the 18th and
19th of .September as the time. An invi-
tation has been extended to the Sir
Knights of Batte to meet them at the
same time and place. All sojourning
Knights are request««! to participate.

The fine display of exquisite photographs
hy O. C. Bandy of Helena, which was ex

it did a whole galaxy of the familiar faces
of ladies, gentlemen, and children of Mon

highest merit by the many who visited
that exhibition of the fine arts. His photo
graphs were pronounced artistic and life
like, true to nature as many of his fine
views of city scenes and gatherings have
been heretofore. Mr. Bandy took first
premium at the Fair for best collection of
stereoscopic views of Montana scenery, and
has a reputation for fine pictures that will

Department for putting down an artes.in
well at Fort Keogh 800 feet. Tne Amen- !
can Well Works were the successful bid- 1
der« and at once commenced npon tl.eir
contract Mr. Chapman states that a good
flow of water has already been strack at
several points in the well. The first water
was struck at a depth of 22? feet, the
second supply at :!70 feet and the last flow
at 475 feet The water now flows in quite
large «juantities. The character of the
water seems to be different from that
strack in this vicinity, and upon analyses
shows nothing but salt, althongh it is not
perceptable to the taste. According to
the analyses one gallon contains a teaspoon
evenfnl of salt.
Attempted Ro'jbery of the Marys
ville Stage Last Saturday.
Kond Agent nnd lli' Pit!
tured and Jailed.
It appears that a short time ago a couple
of men. working on a ranch near Helena,
entered into a scheme to rob the Marys
ville coach. One of them was Jackson, an
ex-convict, who had recently lieen released
after a term of ten yerrs in the California
penitentiary : the other was W. F. Gordon,
a fellow workman.
The men came into town a day or two
ago and Jackson bought a Win. bester ride
and two revolvers and the two men pro
vided themselves with masks and every
thing necessary for the successful accom
plishment of their scheme. But Gordon
was not such a desperate character as he
seemed to lie. He hunted up the Sheriff
and told him of the contemplated enter
prise aud the latter made his arrangements
Two Deputy Sheriff's, Walter Evans and
George Gibbs, were sent by tlie lower road
to meet the coach near Silver City j*i*d
ride in it to the place selected for the roli
bery. An express messenger was also on
the coach, besides the driver, who all
understood the arrangements made to cap
ture the robbers. Two passengers were
also on the coach, Mr. McIntyre and Mr.
As the coach was coming, on Saturday
last, from Marysville to Helena, and when
within about a mile of the Seven Mile
House, the place agreed upon for the
robbery, the coach was stopped by two i
masked men and all alioard were made to
throw up their hands at the points ol
ritles and six shooters and submit to lieing
rob lied. Two watches and $25 in money
was the amount of the haul. When the
robber fonnd only two bits and a few
cigars on the jieraoa of Deputy »Sheriff
L\an*, he was cursed for lieing out with so
little money. The robbers then broke open
the Marysville Stage Company's treasure
box and had cast a lionlder on the top of
Wells, Fargo's treasure box, which broke
in the lid, and as Jackson, the principal
robber, was stooping (having previously
placed his revolver in his tieltj to raise the
rock from within the box. Gordon, the ac
complice, sprang upon him and bore him
to the earth, when the Deputy Sheriffs
were quickly on hand and placed their
official wristlets upon Jackson and brought
him and his pal into the city ahoat sun
down. Jackson did not know how the
thing was done as he bad a blanket, with
eye* cut in it, tied over his head, which
; Gordon used to blind him with as he bore
him to the earth. Jackson calle«l upon
Gordon to shoot, not knowing hut that he
was borne down hy one of the passengers.
There was not a shot fired, and a desper
ate character was put in irons without any
body lieing hurt, and an ex-convict surely
caged for another term in the penitentiary.
The «apture was well managed and re
flects credit upon Evans aud Gibbs, the
Deputy Sheriffs, while it show* that Gor
don is not without a conscience or a hope
in the happy bereaftar.
One til Chicago*« Bénéficient Institu
Chicago, August 2«. —After all this
world is full of kiud. good-hearted people.
Hometimes I have doubte«l it. hut when I
feel my heart growing cold and full of dis
trust toward my fellow man I start out to
find a cure for it. And sure enough I
haven't far to go. On the comer of 20th
street and Wabash avenue stand'one of
the noblest works of man and a glory to
God—The Home for the Friendless—and
heaven knows bow many there are who
are friendless aud find a shelter in this
worthy institution. The object of the
Hume is to extend help and relief to
worthy, indigent women an«l children.
Hundred* every year are fed, clothed and
provided with employment or homes.
The Home is under the supervision of a
hoard of,managers, representing the vari
ous Protestant churches, and is largely sup
ported by voluntary contributions. The
matron is a kind, motherly woman, whom
all the children seem to love and have no
cause to fear. The building is large, airy
and light, clean and well kept : has a large
yard for play grounds for the larger chil
dren, and porches running the length of
the wing for the little fellows *to sport
npon. And such a sight to see ! I hap
pened in yesterday evening, about seven
o'clock, when the little people were having
their bath and being made ready for bed.
There were more babies than I ever saw
together at one time—black-eyed babies,
bine-eyed babies, all kinds of liabies—and
what struck me as the most remarkable
was the fact that not one of them cried.
They were pat in their nice, dean little
cribs and some turned over and went to
sleep ; some pat their toes in their months
and crowed, and some sat up and grinned
at the others.
There were English, German, Irish and
Hebrew children, all receiving the same
kind care. Most of them bad one parent,
some had two. While the mothers were
oat earning their living they had left their
little ones at the Home to be cared fo>.
There were some mothers of young in
fants, some about to become mothers,
young mothers who were not wives; also
old ladies. They have a large room by
themselves, a comfortable room with sev
eral beds in it The Home employs
teachers, and all who come are welcome to
the privileges of the school.
The good people in charge provide pleas
ure in the way of excursions and picnics
for the children. On Sunday those who
are large enough go to church and Sunday
school, and in the evening some one is sure
to call and give them a nice Sunday talk,
something they can understand and enjoy.
Chicago may lie a wicked place, hat
there are lots of good people living here,
as such places as these testify, and there
are many of them. M. F. B.
The summer and Fair are over and
autumn ha* come in the j»erson of .Sep
tember. The day, the month and the
season open auspiciously. In Montana
at least the autumn i* the fairest and
loveliest season of the year. If the
words of Bryant :
"The melancholy .lay» have mmir
The s»»dde*t ot the year,"
are anywhere true, it must be of those
sections of the country where the trees
are all stripped of their foliage, and not
where pine with its perennial verdure
constitutes the chief hack-ground of
scenery, and even throughout the East,
the words of Bryant can only be true of
the later days of autumn, for nothing is
more bright und charming than the
colors of the foliage when first touched
bv frost.
Autumn is the season of ingathering
when the hunsbandman realizes on the
labors and hopes of the season. The
present year ha* been one of severe ami
destructive storms all over the country.
Montana has escaped wonderfully the
most destructive visitations. We have
had no cyclones, cloud-bursts, hail
storms, untimely snow storms or drought.
The reappearance of the devastating
grasshopper at one time tilled us with
dread, but that danger has passed.
Our mines are not at the mercy of the
elements, and always yield their rich
harvests. < >ur wool crop has been
gathered and exceeds in quantity ami
quality all former yields, and to those who
have not already sold, promises a better
return than auyone dared to hope in the
i early parl of the year
Tfae increaw of QUr &nd be rJs
bag been good,
i»ra*s, which is by far
our most important crop, ha* lieeu bet
ter than average. Much has already
been converted into beef, mutton ami
horse flesh. There will be more than
u*ual cut and stacked, and there will he
plenty to feed the unsheltered stock
through the winter.
We have always noticed, too, that
atuutnn wa* not only the busiest *«-a*on
on the farm, but in the cities and towns
a* well. Building is more active. In
creasing confidence is manifested.
Money is more plenty and to lie had on
easier term*. In anticipation of months
when no building can be successfully
done, every one is trying to anticipate
the wants of the future.
The general feeling is that the coun
try ha* reached the bottom of hanl
times and is on the dawn of a new era
of general prosperity. The census re
turn* of the Northwestern State* show*
that the current of settlement is steadily
advancing towards us, and before the
new era of general prosperity ex
periences another check this tide of
settlement and development will lie
upon us and all arouud us, bearing u*
on to wealth and Statehood.
