[special to the herai.d.J Bismarck, Jane 24.—Indications point to no change for the better in the river stage. Upper Missouri river navigation is virtually closed for the season. Three l»oats are idle and deserted in port, and two others are high and dry, unmoved from the skids where they were placed last fall. Montana freights, usual to water movement, must this year seek the rail road in main part. AT HBADWATBKI. The River Outlook Discouraging- — Railroaders m Town—-Pointing up to the Canadian Pacific-— Early Connection Proph esied. [special to the hebai.d. 1 Benton, June 24.—A receding river, with no signs of later rise, warns Benton of an early wind-up in boatiDg business. Northern exports, including much of the wool clip, now threatened with blockade, will, it seems, have to turn inland and seek the railroad. The main obstacle is scarcity of teams, the freighting outfits being largely employed on grading con tracts, thus advancing wagon rates. President Broadwater and Chief En gineer Dodge, of the Montana Central, in town since Wednesday, are en route north. Their destination is Assinaboine and the border Two or more contractors will join the party here. Appearances point to the earliest practical connection of the Mon tana Central and Canadian Pacific roads. The distance from Great Falls to the boundary, about 130 miles, is estimated to cost less than $500,000 for roadbed. Active co-operation of the Canadians is said to have been arranged for. It is believed here that the whole ground will be cov ered with working parties this and next seasons and that trains from the east and north will be steaming into and beyond Bent',.i before the close of autumn, 1887. SHOOTING AN EDITOR. An Angry Father Attempts the Assas sination ot Editor Zeigenluss. Wednesday afternoon a man named George Miller, of Anaconda, attempted to assinate Editor Zeigenfuss. of the Butte Miner, at the office of that paper. Miller had taken offence at an article published in the morniDg paper about the marriage of his daughter, which read as follows : "At a late hour last night Judge McHat ton was summoned to an apartment in the Lizzie block to tie a nuptial knot, and in a few brief moments made one of Mr. Harrington and Miss Miller, both of Ana conda. The happy couple are young in years, the bridegroom being on the lower side of twenty and the bride's summers numbering just fifteen. They arrived in Butte yesterday morning and were occu pying a joint apartment in the Lizzie when the girl's father arrived on the evening train and interrupted their dream of love by compelling the young man to marry the young woman. The bridegroom was a "Lash-slincer " in Anaconda and the bride's father is a carpenter by profession.'' In the same issue of the Miner was a let ter from Anaconda, written in a facetious strain, about the event. The father had been "hunting"' the editor all day, and when he found him at the business office of the Miner he called him outside, and standing at the head of a stairway Zeigen fuss asked him what he wanted and for reply Miller drew a pistol and said "I want to kill you." The men were standing close together and as Miller pointed the gun Zeigenfuss struck up Millers arm and when the trigger was pulled the ball passed over Zeigenfuss' shoulder and lodged in the wall. The two men grappled and fell down the stairs with the editor on top. Miller was arrested aDd lodged safely in jail. ^ ___ .Missing Volnmes.

A Washington special says: The report that Agent Williamson, of the Indian Office, has been disregarding the law or his duties by permitting the illegal occupation of Indian lands in Montana, is doubted by Commissioner Atkins. The Department , denies in behalt of its Crow Indian agent ; the truth of the assertions relative to the illegal granting of grazing permits by Williamson, basing this denial upon the thorough knowledge of his probity and lack of any accurate information as to which Crow reservation is used by the stock men, either with or without permits or under leases granted by the Crows with out the government approval. —Dillon, the county seat of Beaverhead, : has a second paper, the Examiner, which both in appearance and contents compares with the average Territorial journal. It is Democratic in politics, and about its sup plying "a long felt want" in that particu lar the citizens and settlers of the southern border are probably best able to judge. The Examiner is an outgrowth of the Toten Talk and Free Pre» » third paper ven tures at Butte, which, like all others of the kind attempted in Montana, failed to reach a living basis. It has a field less promising than we could wish for a se con paper, but its success may be prop hes ied it is endowed wiiii means anywh ere eq to the menUlity engaged in its man a , ; j , ; : ; From the Dally Herald of June 25. NORTHERN R. R. NOTES. Benton to Have the Iron Horse Next Year. [special to the herald ] Fort Bentos, June 25. —It is stated on good authority that the Central Montana grading down the Missouri, forty miles from the Prickly Pear intersection to Great Falls, will be wholly completed by the first of November. Locating surveys north of Great Falls and Benton are to be instituted and the same put under contract as early as men and teams can be found and put to work. The belief is general that Benton will next year hear the neighing of the iron horse from the north. LOWER RIVER NEWS. Fair Stage of Water--Boats in Port Future Boating Prospects. [specialTO the herald.] Bismarck, 'June 25.—The river is lad ing slightly, but there is a fair stage ot water and in good boating condition at this point. There are in all three boats in port. Two are for up river points and one lor southern service. The prospect for future upper river navigation is good. Accident at the Court House. This morning about 10 o'clock a young man named Niles Nelson, who was wheel ing an iron barrow loaded with a cut brown stone block acioss a stair opening on the second door of the court house, was jostled off the stage plank and fell through to the basement below, a distance of about thirty feet, with the iron barrow on top The wonde: is that he was not killed in stantly, for ninety-nine men out of a hun dred going through the same per formance would have met instant death. He fell upon his right shoulder and head, and was carried to St. Peter's Hospital more dead than [alive. The patient was visited soon after the accident by a Her ald reporter and was found to be resting easy except from pains in the right shoulder, which caused fever and restless ness. He is a native of # Denmark, about 24 years of age. a bright, intelligent Scan dinavian. and has no relatives in this country. His injuries are not such but what hopes are promised of an early re covery. The employes on our court house have been so far fortunately free from casualties or accidents, this being only the second person injured since its commencement. Sufferers from chills and fever, who have nsed quinine as a remedy, will appreciate Ayer's Ague Cure. This preparation, if taken according to directions, is warranted a sure cure. Residents in malarial dis tricts should not be without it. Clarke, Conrad A Curtin to the Fore. The best evidence of a live, enterprising business firm is to see such a one as Clarke, Conrad à Curtin soliciting trade through the columns of the Herald, where they: place before their customers and the general [public a square statement of the kind of goods they have on hand and offer for sale. It might be argued by the slow and-easy tradesman that such a firm as Clarke, Conrad & Curtain, who have been established in the same business since 1864, need not advertise. But the clear dis cernment of the active member of the firm knows how to treat customers and how to make more of them by keeping his inter ests and theirs before the public in such an advertisement as appears in the Herald to-day, where, under the head of "Import ers of and Jobbers and Retail Dealers in Heavy Shelf and Building Hardware," may be seen that anything in the .building line may be obtained at their store in Helena. From their announcement also of be ; ng the sole agents for the celebrated "Superior' and famous "Acorn" cooking and heating stoves and W. G*. Fisher's Cincinnati Wrought Iron Ranges for hotels and family use, the information may be gathered that they can furnish anything that may be wanted in the stove or range line. But the great variety of Jtheir stock mentioned in their advertisement, to which we call special attention, is their guarantee that they are abreast of the times in everything that is new, useful and generally needed, and that they have the largest and most complete wholesale and retail stock of goods in the Northwest. The strict busi ness habits of the firm and the proverbial urbanity with which they treat their custo mers, are a constant reminder to their friends that.the same cordial state of things exist and that they are [capable of taking as many more customers to their con fidence, .who will be treated by a good, square deal and at rates that defy compe tition. The firm is worthy of the con tinued confidence of the people and is de serving of a liberal share of their trade. Everybody is respectfully invited to call and inspect their stock, which is ever changing and ever new, with good bargains for all. ^ ___ Pond's Extract, the only true remedy for Blind and Bleeding Piles, and Hemorrh ages of all kinds.

The reduction by the Northern Pacific of ten cents per hundred on wool billed through from Helena to principal Eastern markets, via Duluth and the Lakes, is a liberal concession. Among others, growers in Lewis and Clarke, portions of Meagher and perhaps Choteau, wfll be benefitted by the reduced tariff'. Montana's wool crop is a considerable freight item-—perhaps greater by one-third this year than last. A New Enterprise.

Tenth Anniversary Observed on the Battle Field. j ' ; ! : , j ! | j The First News of the Frightful Butchery Given to the World Through the Herald. Yesterday, June 25th. was celebrated on the Little Horn battle field the tenth an niversary of the Custer massacre. Reports of the observances are telegraphed, as also for the first time the Indian account of the unparalleled butchery. The terrible en gagement commenced about noon, June 25,1876. and lasted till sundown of that day, when the last of Custer s command was no more. The Herald's special report—the first published to the country following the battle—gave particulars of the fight to the Helena public in an ''extra," and imme diately after was telegraphed in special form to New York. That first report reached the Herald through "Muggins" Taylor, GeD. Gibbon's scout, and W. H. Norton, of Stillwater, who transmitted it forthwith to this paper. It is of interest in connection with the reports sent from the battle field ten years after, and the im portant parts of that first account are re produced below : Stillwater, M. T., July 2,1876.—Gen. Custer found the Indian camp of about 2,000 lodges on the Little Horn and im mediately attacked the camp. Custer took five companies and charged the thickest portion. Nothing is known of the opera tions of the detachment except as they trace it by the dead. Major Reno com manded the other seven companies and at tacked the lower portion of the camp. The Indians poured in a murderous fire from all directions. Gen. Custer, his two brothers, his nephew and his brother-in law were all killed and not one of his de tachment escaped. Two hundred and seven men were buried in one place, and the killed is estimated at 300. The Indians surrounded Reno'«command and held them one day in the hills, cut off from water, until Gibbon's command came in sight, when they broke camp in the night and left. The Seventh fought like tigers and were overcome by mere brute force. The Indian loss cannot be estimated, as thev bore off their dead and cached the most of their killed. The remnant of the Seventh Cavalry and Gibbon's command are returning to the mouth of the Little Horn. The Indians got all the arms of the slaughtered soldiers. There were seventeen commissioned officers killed, and the whole of the Custer family died at the head of the column. The Indian camp was from three to four miles long and twenty miles up the Little Horn from its mouth. The Indians actually pulled men off their horses in some instances. I give this as Taylor told me, as he was the first over the field after ' the battle. W. H. NORTON. Reduction of Kates. The Western Union Telegraph Company will put into efi'ect a new schedule of rates from points in Montana on and after July 1,1886. The reduction from the one dollar rate to seventy-five cents is to any point in British Columbia, Manitoba, Min nesota, Nebraska, Oregon, Washington Ter ritory and Wyoming Territory for mes sages of ten words or under, each addi tional word five cents. The rate to Da kota is reduced from one dollar to sixty cents, extra words four cents each. Night rates are seventy-five cents to points in Illinois, Indiana, Indian Territory, Kansas, Iowa, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, Ohio, Tennessee and Wisconsin. The night rate is fifty cents to British Col umbia, Manitoba, Nevada, Minnesota. Nebraska and Washington and Wyoming Territories, and to Dakota forty cents. A Four Bladed Axe. Mr. Lawrence Reynolds, whose wood yard is near the N. P. Refrigerator, has an axe with four blades. He uses it with steam. It matters not how large the stick is the fonr blades come down and the stick is split. Many of the inventive gentlemen in Helena have no conception of the utility of this axe.
