Leiter, the defaulting ex-treasurer of Batte City, who is now under a bond of $1,000 to appear before the grand jury, left that city in a buggy with a friend and drove to Silver Bow Junction. There he boarded the south bound train, with his destination known only to himself. Unluckily lor him his flight was quickly discovered, and the sheriff telegraphed to officers along the line to apprehend him. This was success fully done by Sheriff Jones, of Dillon, and the lightfooted official was turned about iu his southward journey and conveyed back to Butte. No reason is assigned for Leiters sudden attempt to leave the country. Nothing new has been discovered with regard to his defalcations and the amount still stands at about $700. His bondsmen were very much surprised at his attempted escape and will doubtless take means to prevent a repetition of it. Land Office Notice. United States Land Office, \ Helena, M. T., Feby. 4th, 1886. j To all officers authorized to take affi davits ami proofs in public land cases : Your attention is especially called to the following instructions, in which entries will be suspended until they are obeyed. 1.

Chinatown was crowded this moruingby hundreds of citizens, attracted by the demonstrations of the Celestials iu cele brating their new year. The principal amusements indulged in this morning were gambling and shooting ofi firecrackers. The latter was done on an extensive and expensive scale. Provident and economi cal in all else the heathen Chinee's heart melts to the enjoyment gunpowder affords him, and to realize this enjoyment he is lavish in expenditure. The firecrackers exploded every year by the Chinamen of Helena cost hundreds of dollars, and all the compensation they get lor the outlay is the very brief pleasure afforded during the combustion of the explosives. This morning a huge coil ot crackers was brought out by a Chinamau and suspended from a pole, held by him on the top of one of their shanties. When unfolded to its full extent the string was ten feet long. The end was ignited and and the racket began and continued uninterruptedly for three minutes, ending in a grand and much louder explosion. The performance xvas much enjoyed by the crowd ol laugh ing and chattering heathens and was re peated several times. Curious to know the cost of these three minute packages, our reporter inquired at the store where they are purchased and learned that each such j package sold for $13.50—a pretty high ligure for three minutes of fun. But "for ways that are dark and tricks that are vain the heathen Chinee is peculiar." Serious Accident. On Friday last, says the Townsend Tranchant, Mrs. J. T. Ward and little sou and Mrs. Perkius started from the former's home for Townsend. While comiDg down the hill from the Ixncb, between Ward's and McGonigal s the sleigh tipped over on the team, throwing the occupants under the horses' feet. Little Walter Ward had his right arm broken, Mrs. Perkins was quite badly hurt, though uo bones were broken, and Mrs. Ward escaped with a few bruises. m -----* Not Frank. The annouced appointment of George F. Marsh as assistant general ticket agent of the Northern Pacific has led many to be lieve that Frank Marsh, of Butte, was the appointee. Inquiry at the Northern Pa cific office elicited the information that the newly appointed agent is George S. Marsh, of St. Paul, an official lor a long time in the company's service. From the Daiiv Herald of February 5. Broke Jail and Skipped. Tuesday last, says the White Sulphur Springs Husbandman, Charley JenniDgs, a Territorial prisoner confined in the county jail, made a bold strike for liberty. Tak ing advantage ol' the jailor's absence he broke through the bars of «he cage, crawled through the transom over the door in the jail building, armed himself with the turn key's revolver and lx*lt of cartridges, and appropriating under sherifi V al work's sebaps, overcoat and gloves, saddled up h'.s (Walwork's) horse, which was in a stable near by, mounted and rode away iu broad daylight, unmolested and unsuspected. A number saw him ride leisurely away. His exit from the cage was made through a convenient sized hole broken in the side of the corridor by means of an iron bar and a piece of gas pipe used about the sink. W ith this instrument the lattice work ot the jail was snapped ofi' like pipe-stems, and a hole made sufficient to allow a man to pass out with ease. The steel cage which confined him was put in by Pauley Bros., of St. Louis, and was thought to be perlectly secure. Bullion Shipments. The Northern Pacific Express Company yesterday started on their eastward journey fifty bars of silver bullion from the Granite Mountain mine, valued at $50.000. 'I his immense amount of bullion is the result of one week's run of the Granite Mountain mill. This popular transportation company has also on hand for shipment to-morrow six bars of bullion from another Montana bonanza, the Drum Lummon, in value ap proximating $23,000. This is the result of the monthly clean-up for January, exclu sive of the regular output. The Boston Montana Mining Company have also shipped during the past week by the Northern Pacific Express six or eight bars of Gloster bullion valued at $50,000. This makes a total of $123,000 shipped by this company this week. New Law Firm. Y'e call attention to the business card that appears in our paper to-day of a new law firm ot Hedges & Miller. Mr. Hedges is one of the oldest residents of our city and needs no introduction to our people. For several years past he has not actively been engaged in the practice of law, hut proposes lor the future to solicit a share of j business and devote himself to it, in con nection with Mr. Jesse K' Miller, an attor ney of six years professional experience in Minnesota and two years later practice at Eureka, in northern California. The new firm will practice in all the courts and at tend to all matters connected with land and mining cases, giving legal counsel and negotiating any and all matters of busi ness. We commend them to the public for a liberal share of patronage. Sued for £15,000. Clara L. Clinton, otherwise known as Madame Aimee, a fortune teller of Butte, has brought Suit against that municipality for $15,000 damages, which sum she alleges is dae her for permanent injuries sustained in a fall she received ou a street crossing in that city, which fall she claims was caused by the had condition of the pave ment and the negligence of the authorities in allowing it to remain so dangerous for pedestrians. • The accident happened on the eighth of last November and resulted in the dislocation of her hip and other in juries. The complaint sets forth that by reason of the accident she has "suflered great pain and anguish of body and mind to her damage in the sum of $15,000." The complaint was filed the other day and the cause will probably come up for trial at the next term of court. Postal Delivery tor Helena. Postmaster Cutkbert has received letters from the Department asking for the latest statistics bearing upon the population of Helena, presumably with the view of plac ing it among those cities entitled to special delivery under the new law. Col. Y heeler was around yesterday gathering the neces sary data, which will he lorwarded to Washington at once. In view of the vast increase iu the population ol our city since the last Federal census it is probable that when the information asked reaches \Yashington, Helena will be soon granted the privilege of special postal delivery. Portraits of Our People. The Butte Inter-Mountain continues the portraits ol prominent people inofficial and civil life, accompanied by well written biographical sketches, prepared by Fred. M. Y'ilson. The artist employed is certainly a proficient workman, and the portraits, compared with photographs from which he copies, are in nearly every instance faith ful reproductions. The feature introduced in this line of illustration by our Butte cotemporary is highly creditable to its enterprise, and we have no doubt it will be persevered in to its own advantage and the public's satisfaction. Married. The St. Johns, N. B., Telegraph of Jan uary 13th says : The nuptials of Dr. J. C. McKinnon, of Antigonish, N. S., and Miss Minnie, eldest daughter of Mr. Meagher, principal of the Regent street schools, were celebrated at St. Dunstan's church to-day by Kev. J. C. McDevitt. The bride, who is a great favorite and has a large circle of friends, was attended by her sister, Miss Alice R. Meagher, and the groom was supported by Mr.. T. B. Meagher, principal ot the Bathurst grammar school. The bride is a niece of Mr. T. B. Meagher, of Lewiston, Montana. Correction. In our notice of the recent marriage of Mr. Patrick Sweeney and Miss Minnie Hawkes the names of the attendants of the bride and groom were given incorrectly. Miss Mary Rattigan was bridesmaid and Mr. Patrick Quinn best man. The error in the article lay in our source of information. Few people are exempt from toothache» and even poets have written on its terrors. But this ache and every other ache yield to St. Jacobs Oil, which simply conquers pain. , ed (Jakes, " is. in a precarious condition, j Upon the result of the meeting to he held Froru the Daiiv Herald of February 6. THE NORTHERN PACIFIC. Entrance to Butte Aimed at--A (.rent Land Sale, Etc. An interview at 8t. Paul with Vice President Oakes credits him with saying that "if arrangements are not made in the immediate future whereby the North ern Pacific can run its own cars into Butte, we will build our own line there, and that at no distant day." Regarding the proposed big land sale east of the Missouri, he says negotiations are still pending, and the prospects are that the sale will be completed. It covers all of the company's land east of the river, some 4,000,000 acres. Il made it will wipe out about $10,000,000 ol the company 's preferred stock. "The Transcontinental Association. " add j in New York hangs its life. The report that the Canadian Pacific had demanded admittance and fifty per cent, in the allot ment of percentages is without foundation. No demand whatever has been made. If there were I would have been officially iu formed of it ere this. When the Canadian road is ready to come in it will be received into the fold and treated as any of the the other roads. We do not expect any trouble from it, nor does its management propose creating any row." Wedding Bell The latest chime of the "merry wedding bells - ' has rung out for the nuptials of Mr. James E. Stevens, of Townsend, and Miss Ida Carpenter, of Deep Creek, Meagher county. Their betrothal was mentioned a short time since in the Herald, and we are now happy to chronicle the joyous consummation of their engagement. Ï he ceremony was performed at the residence of Mr. Carpenter, at Deep Creek, a few days ago, and was signalized by the cus tomary festivities, indulged in by a large number of friends. Mr. Stevens is one of the proprietors of the Townsend Tranchant, an enterprising local paper, and will short ly return with his bride to take up his residence in the metropolis of the valley. Congratulations being in order we present ours on the happy event, together with best wishes for the future happiness and prosperity of the newly made couple. Look Out tor llogii* Tickets. As will be seen by a card from the Knights and Ladies of Honor, published in another column, the public are warned against purchasing tickets 1'or a ball to be given on the 16th of February under the impression that it is to be given by their society. They have announced to give a ball on the 22d inst.. and now parties are selling tickets for the Knights and Ladies of Honor ball on the 16th—a week pre vious. The use of the society's name for this ball is totally unauthorized, and it is simply a rascally expedient on the part of interested parties adopted for the purpose of selling tickets. Some of these bogus tickets have already been sold under the prestige of the society's name, and it is hoped this notice will prevent further similar impositions. If we are not mis taken, the man for whose benefit the hall on the 16th is advertised to be given, is the same person who xvas expelled from Boze man by the Yigilantes on account of an attempt to place his young daughter in a house of prostitution. Y'hather the charge is true or not, the accusation of such a thing is sufficient to render the public xvary of him. Notice. The public is cautioned against buying tickets for a "Grand Ball " purported to be given by the Knights and Ladies of Honor on February 16, 1886, at Harmonia Hall, as the order is giving no ball on that date, and the tickets are got out to mislead the public. The Knights and Ladies of Honor give their ball on February 22, 1886, and nobody can procure tickets for the same without an invitation. A. B. Snell, J. H. Blake, R. H.

The following committee was last even ing appointed by the Helena Mining and Stock Exchange, to solicit subscriptions to aid the National Bi Metallic Association in its efforts to secure the proper recognition ot silver as one of the standards of value in the *national metallic currency : Red Mountain and City—A. J. David son, chairman. Y'ickes, Gregory and City—John Y\ Buskett. Gloster and City—A. J. Seligman. Elkhorn and City—A. M. Holter. Marysville and City—Yhn. Mnth. The Gloster. The Gloster mine produced during the month of January $81,890 in bullion at a total expense of $31,550, making a net profit of $50,340. Of this expense $8,000 was paid out for quicksilver, salt and the sinking of the main shaft. The salt and quicksilver will not be put to use until March. The mining and milling expense for January would, therefore, be $23,550, or a profit of $58,340. The stockholders' pro portion of the profit will be $50,340, which will be divided among them.

W. Barker, the merchant tailor, died suddenly about 6 p. m. yesterday. He had been laid up for the past three weeks and was under treatment for pleuropneumonia, Dr. Eckles being the attending physician. He was thought to be doing fairly well, but while the attendants were raising him in his bed he suddenly fell back and expired. A Wise Relrtrm. The habit of administering quinine in power ful doses, as an antidote to malarial maladies was once dangerously common. Happily this practice ha« undergone a wide reform. Not only the public, but professional men have adopted, not wholly, of course, but largely, Hostetter's Stomach Bitters as a safe botanic substitute for the pernicious alkaloid. The consequences of this change are most important. Now fever and ague sufferers are cured—formerly their com plaints were only for the time relieved, or liait cured—the remedy eventually failing to produce any appreciable effect, except the doses wore in creased. A course of the hitters, persistently follow ed, breaks up the worst attacks and pre vents their return. The evidence in favor of this sterling specific and household medicine is of no amhiguous character, but positive and satisfac tory, and the sources whence it proceeds are very numerous. feb 5-8 -IOawII PERSONAL. —John T.

It has had many imitators, but none have so fully met all the requirements needful for the proper treatment of the hair and scalp. Hall's Hair Kenexver has steadily grown in favor, and spread its fame and usefulness to every quarter of the globe. Its unparal. leled success can be attributed to but one cause: the entire fulfilment of its promises. The proprietors have often been surprised *t the receipt of orders from remote coun tries, where they bad never made an effort for its introduction. The use for a short time of Hall's Hair Renewer wonderfully improves the per sonal appearance. It cleanses the scalp from all impurities, cures all humors, fever, and dryness, and thus prevents baldness. It stimulates the weakened glands, and enables them to push forward a new and vigorous growth. The effects of this article are not transient, like those of alcoholic prepara tions, but remain a long time, which makes its use a matter of economy.
