That min will get drunk and steal is repeatedly illustrated and was exemplified the night before last to the sorrow of 8. Slasher, proprietor of the Bou-Ton Restau rant, on Main street. His regular night employe having received an injury tLrt warranted his being oil' duty for the night, Mr. Slasher engaged another man to at tend to the business of the restaurant dur ing the night, and he himself went home at an early hour in the evening. Though a good man otherwise, the fellow engage«! ( for the night had one failing—he would get drnuk when occasion ottered. Being pretty well bowled up when lie entere«! upon his duties, he conceded th«* idea that it would be an excellent plan to hire a eub siitute to take charge of the restaurant and give himself over to the pleasures of the enp for the remainder of the night, whose evening he had alreatly so sedulously improved. This was no sooner thought of than executed, and in a few moments he departed, leaving another man, McLaugh lin by name, in charge of the restaurant. ( The latter at once concluded that here was au opportunity to make a stake, and forth- , with undertook to improve it by rittiug the till. This he accomplished in good :.bape, not leaving a cent in the drawer, ami pocketing, it is estimated, niant $20. With this hoodie lie quickly decamped aud steered for the faro liank, where he was soon «U « j> in the fascinations of the sport. While thus occupied be was ar rested on a variant ' »worn out by Mr. 8!ushcr, who was awakened at 1 o'clock in the morning and apprized of the theft. When arrested McLaughlin had $13 and some cents on his person. He was tried yesterday afternoon before Justice English, and having been lbund guilty as chargtd, was lined $25 and costs and seat to the county jail to work it out. Complimented by lit** Successor.

Au Old Dodge to Extort Roney Prac ticed in Helena. Worthless vagabonds who are too lazy to work lor the money they wish to ac quire are never at a loss to invent means to procure cash without giving au equiva lent therefor, and often display consider able ingenuity in devising ways and means to »apply their wants. A well known measure of this kind in Eastern cities is to disguise a» a policeman, arrest parties and make them pungle to keep out ot jail. This dodge was tried in Helena yestt-rday by a fellow who worked it on two or three parties l>efore he was caught and exposed. However, the fellow was not able to pro cure a uniform, as is done by the more ex l*crt sharper in larger cities, and in order to bave some insignia of authority he pro cured a metallic badge similar to that worn by the policemen, which he would disclose to parties who questioned bis right to make arrests. Thus accoutered he went to the house of a citizen ol Helena last night ami informed him that be had arrested a friend of his naming a certain pcisou, and must needs put him in jail unie** »omelxxty would reimburse him I the alleged otticer) for the time aud trouble occasioned ; in which case his friend would be set free without more ado. The citizen, however, lieing well acquaint ed with the police force ot Helena, dis puted the fellows claimed authority and ejected him forcibly from his premises. This morning the pretended policeman was arrested and brought be'ore Judge English on the charge of extortin'» money ami impersonating an otticer of the law. It was a clear case, and the Judge gave him the full limit of the law iu such cases "made aud provided," and sent him up for a long term. The bogus officer is now a meuilier of the chain gang and is working on the streets lor the mutual benefit of him elf and the city. Racket on the Range. The first whispers of a trouble that will in future become an important issue, when Montana's broad ranges are more severely taxed than they aro now to atl'ord nutri ment and support for thousands of cattle and horses, are now heard in the Mussel shell country. The stock owners, who have previously grazed their herds ou the large ranges between the Musselshell aud the Yellowstone, naturally feel that they have a prior claim u(»on these ranges, and look with disfavor uj>on parties who subse q tient ly infringe ou their prerogatives by bringing more herds upon the range. J. H. Conrad, having lately driven a baud of cat tle on the above mentioned range, the former occupants met last week to protest against what they regarded its au infringe ment of their right», and resolved "that we discountenance such actions as unfair and injurious to the best interests of the coun try, and that we refuse to recognize or work with any parties infringing up«»a the prior rights of others by turning stock on a range prev iously occupied ; and be it further resolve«!, that we refuse to work with or in any way handle the cattle of the said J. H. Conrad." Such action is but the commencement of a movement that it needs no prophet's eye to forecast, w ill entail litigation and wrang ling among stock owners iu the future,and retard the wondrous progress the stock in dustry is now making by creating dissen sion» iu its ranks and preventing the har monious and concerted action now obtain ing among stock growers in Montana. singular Accid«'iit. As an illustration of the numerous, un locked for accidents by which a man's life is threatened at almost every turn we note the following from the Butte Inttr-JIounUiin : "Saturday last while Wm. Neston and J. T. Babliiugton were chop ping tiud«er in Flk park, about 12 miles from Butte, a singular accident occurred which resulted disastrously to Neston. His companion, who was distant about fifteen feet, struck a furious blow at the log he was chopping. The axe struck an intervening limb, slipped from his grasp, and Hying throvgh the air with the force of a solid shot struck Neston on the chin, cutting through the lip aud taking out a couple of front teeth. He fell to the ground senseless but soon recovering was brought to town. Fortunately the man was struck with the end of the axe helve, or otherwise the affair word«! have had a very different termination.'' Rore (told. Messrs. Cotter «.k Hickey Lave just made a clean up of $5,000 of gold of the Empire lode, in the Stemple district. The ore was treated in the Whippoorwill mill, known to be none of the liest. The gohl is from a hundred tons of ore of second class. Th** selected ore has lieen sacked and shipped to Omaha. An old adage which says "it never rains but it pours" bolds goo«l this time of goo«l news from the Stemple dis trict, from which we obtain the glad tidings that Tierney aud Lynch have also struck it rich, for they have sent the retort of a valuable clvau up on the Homestake and M. L lodes to the Helena assay office. These mines are now ren«lered famous on account of their rich gold ores that have lately been develoj*ed. A Fraud. We notice that one Deo. W.

AA'ord comes from the Missouri valley that a monster grizzly bear, weighing twelve or fourteen hundred pounds, was killed in Magpie gulch a few days ago. The herds of settlers m the valley have su here« 1 greatly iu the past months of the autumn by the ravages of a l»ear, which has carrie«! off anil killed thirty or forty head of cattle, and has always successfully eluded all attempts made to effect his cap ture. It is now thought that the bear killed in Magpie gulch is the same that has inflicted so much «lamage on the ikx-ks and herds of the valley. The manner ot his capture is as follows: He was tracked to his ileu near the hea«l of the gulch by a dog belonging to Ed. Cooney, of the Missouri valley. Ed., with a compauion, followed the dog to the (»car's den, and, when he arrivetl near enough, was favored w ith a sight of the gii/.zly's nose and h«*ad protruding from the cave, with a very questionable welcome ex pressetl in his angry \ isage. Cooney ami his friend saluted him with a volley from their rides and succeeded in killing him at the first »hot. They then attempteil to get him out of the cave, but despite their united efforts the liear was so heavy they could not budge him. They then repaired to the ranch for help, aud with the aid of the reinforcements there m-eived succeeded in getting the monster out the cave and dow n from the mountains. It is the larg est bear killed in that vicinity for years. A K unn wav Locomotive. Last Saturday evening, says the Living ston Enterprise, G us Johnston, a locomo tive wiper, undertook to run one of the big consolulated locomotives, or "hogs," as they are called in railroa«! parlance, from near the coal sheds into the round house. He got her started all right, hut could not regulate the speed or stop the big machine. AA'hen be fourni the engine showed no signs of stopping on the turn-table to l»e swung around, Johnson jumped aud let the "hog" follow her own «ourse. 8he ran right along over the turn-table, crashed through the folding doors of one stall of the round house, and started to «limb upon locomotive 171 that stcxxl inside with her nose toward the doors. No. 171 resisted the outrage, backed up ami shoved her teuiler clear through the brick wall of the round house, which is fully fourteen inches thick. As the break was right between two windows and the windows went with the walls, the 0(>eniDg only required a little trimming around the edges to be as large and clean a space as the dismantled doorway opposite. The damage to the engines was not very great. Mr. Johnson did not stop to make any explanations or take any ail vice, but retired prciipitately and still absents himself. The >1 ycott Lode. Brown B.

The AA'ycott is situated on the road to the Gate of the Mountains, abont twelve or fourteen miles from town, ami as far as developed shows a fine Ixsly of gold and silver bearing ore, assaying $110 to the ton. The lead is embedded in a slate formation, w hich has been stripped ott' in (daces by Mr. Gamble. He has found the ea*t wall aud penetrated into the vein five leet already without reaching the other si«let The ore is stained with copper and looks like a gold ore, but from the a*.*ays made shows a preponderance of silver, which is present in the proportion of 90 ounces to the ton. The mine is sitnated about a mile south of the l«xle worked by L. Beveridge, which carries the same qual ity of ore hut is richer than the AA'ycott. Mr. Gamble is thoroughly satisfied that he has a good thing in the AVyi-ott. and that future development will show that he is not mistaken in his ideas regarding it. Paying the Driid«*nd*. The Helena Mining and Reduction Co have declared a dividend for the month of November of three («er cent, on the capital stock, amounting to $19,**95.73. This makes the fifth dividend of the year, amounting to the grand total of $138,000. The showing is exceedingly gratifying. It reflects great credit upon the management and places the company's mines anti works among the liest paying properties in the Territory. Fifteen cents a share in five in stallments is pretty big interest on the money invested. Resolution* of Kc*n«*ct. At a regular meeting of Rocky Mouu tain Encampment No. 1,1. O. O. F., held at their hall Saturday evening, the follow ing preamble and resolutions were unanimous ly adopted : Whereas, By the dispensation of an All wise Providence our camp has been en tered by the stern Messenger of Death and our beloved Brother aud Patriarch, John 8.

Therefore, be it Resolved, That we deeply sympathize with those who are bound to our departed brother by the nearest and dearest ties, and share with them the hope of a reunion iu that other world where there is no parting and bliss ineffable lorbids a tear.

The Council met last evening for the purpose of receiving the election returns from the sixth ward. Mr. Duignan was declared elected and t«H)k the oath ofoffice and his sc A .a the Council. A sidewalk was ordered ou East Fifth avenue. Mayor Sullivan vetoed the telephone ordinance as follows : HELIXi, Mont.. Nov. 11. I**'» 2b the City Council of the Cito of II t : GUTLDIEK :—I herewith return ordi nance No. 71 withont my approval, and lor the following reasons : Ordinances are in the nature of laws for our government, and 1 h mg such should lie general in their character. They are différ èrent in their effect aud general bearing from mere contracts, and it is not «lesirable or w ise to confuse ordinances with con tracts. The subject matter of this or«li nance contains two distinct propositions—a license on telephone companies and a con tlitional contract with the Rocky Mountain Bell Telephone Company ; therefore my objections thereto. If the Council «lesire to place the license on telephone companies at a given sum, let section 12 of ordinance No. 42 be so ainemletl. If sul*»e«iuently you «lesire to contract w ilb the Bell Tele phone Company, that can l»e «lone a» other contracts are made, an«l iu my judgment «loes not r*H|iiire an ordinance or (»art of an ordinance. Respectfully submitted, JAMES St 1.L1VAX, Mayor. The City Marshal and C'itv Attorney were instructed to look after the extension of the gutters into the street in.front of the Union block.
