Kram the Daily Herald of July 0. SHOT HIS WIFE. Hu>lV Kube Attempts the Life of His Spouse and Empties His Kevolver at Her«--Two Shots 'lake Effect. Last Sunday evening an individual known as Rusty Kube attempted the life of his wife in her house on Joliet street, »bout half-past ten o'clock four pistol shots were heard in the vicinity, succeeded by terrible shrieks. Bushing in the direc tion ot the noise persons found Kate Kube leaning against the doorway of her house with blood streaming from her head and shoulders. It was evident that she had been shot. 8he was taken into the house and put to bed and medical attendance summoned. It was found she had received two wounds, one bullet passing through the left shoulder and another having struck her in the back of the head, passing down wards across »the neck and lodging under the chin. Her wounds were at once dressed and everything possible done to make her comfortable. This morning she was rest ing easily and is in a fair way to recover. Drink and depravity were the causes of the crime. Albert Kube, or as he is better known, Kusty Kube, is a worthless vaga bond who has frequently figured in an un enviable light in Police Court circles. His wile had left him with a man named Wm. McKenzie. Last October McKenzie and Mrs. Kube came to Helena and a few weeks later "Rusty" appeared upon the scene. He caused some disturbance in McKenzie's house when he first came and his wife expressed herself frequently fearful of receiving liodily harm from him. The womau says Kube came in last Sun day evening while she was lying on the bed and asked her for money. She told him she had none and lie proceeded to search her, his anger increasing all the time. At last he drew a revolver and, telling her lie was going to kill her, fired tour times with the result noted aliove. Threats of lynching were indulged in when the affair became generally known, but the perpetrator of th« deed had lied aud was nowhere to be found. At this hour he is still at large, though the officers are on his trail and have gieat hopes of overhauling him. THE CATHOLIC MISSION. Interesting Instructions by Father II it chard at the Cathedral. Last Sunday the Jesuit Missionary, Father Buchard, commenced the conduct of a Catholic mission at the cathedral, which is to last throughout the present week. Father Buchard has been a mis sionary priest for fifteen years, and during that time has established the reputation of an eloquent pulpit orator and successful worker. His discourses so far in this city have attracted large crowds of hearers as they are listened to by persons of every faith, who are invited and expected to at tend, irrespective of creed. Last evening the Father preached upon the nature of sin, original aud actual, and the sacrament of baptism—one means of its remission. To-night and to-morrow night he will discourse upon "Auricular Confession," or the sacrament of penance of the Catholic Church, the other means effecting the remission of sin. The exercises of the mission are arranged as follows for every day this week : Five a. m.—First mass, followed by a short instruction by Father Buchard. 6:30 a m.—Second mass, followed by in struction iu the French language, by the Bishop. 8 a. m.—Third mass, succeeded by an instruction by Father Buchard. 7:30 p. m.—Devotion of th« rosary, in struction by Father Buchard and bene diction. l»avidson>Hay. The marriage of Mr. Thomas James : Davidson and Miss Aurora Alice Kay, of Helena, was quietly celebrated yesterday, at the residence of the bride's parents, Mr. M. L. Ktreator, pastor of the Christian , church, performing the ceremony. Both parties are well known in Helena, and . each is held in high estimation by their numerous friends. The bride and groom spent the day iu an excursion to the Cate | of the Mountains, Mr. Davidson's business engagements precluding a longer absence from the city at present. The wedding was a very quiet affair, aud was witnessed only by the immediate friends of the con tracting parties. In common with all who know them the Hekai.D presents its best i wishes and congratulai ions to Mr. and Mrs. | Davidson. Doubly Matrimonial. The literal Fourth of July, although the Sabbath day. was eelebrated by a pleasant wedding party which assembled at^he j house of Mr. C. C. Stubbs, ou lower Kod- j ney street. When tlie guests had assem- j bled aud all were iu readiness, Mrs. Kate j M. Stewart entered the parlor leaning ui*on the arm of Kobert Kincaid. After these, and taking a position beside them, came Joseph H. Boucher and Miss Idell Stubbs. Iu a few well chosen words Kev. K. E. Smith addressed all with reference to the honor and authority of the marriage relation, and then proceeded to join each pair in tiie holy bonds of wedlock. ITayer was offered by Rev. J. J.) Garvin.

I ourth of July Proceedings in the Drum Lummon Camp. Parties who were out to Marysville Sunday came back with the well defined idea that there had been a celebration in that camp on the Fourth, and indeed the impressions made upon the minds of visi tors on that occasion warrant the state ment. The camp celebrated in truth and celebrated gloriously. Early in the day the "natives' - and visi tors repaired to a wooded eminence near the town, where the exercises were con ducted. Mr. S. F. Ralston, one of the "old residents," acted as president of the day and conducted the patriotic campaign ably and acceptably. The prominent features of the exercises were the oration by Col. A. C. Botkin, of Helena, and the reading of the Declaration of Independence by Mr. I. Salhinger, also a citizen of Montana's Cap ital. Mr. Salhinger's reading was marked by excellent effects lent by his elocution ary talent and ability, and received the commendation of all. The elegant and eloquent language of Col. Botkin, em ployed in illustrating a theme, old as the Nation yet dear as its existence and pros perity to every true American, commanded the interest his oratorical efforts usually awake and led captive the admiration of all his hearers. Not one present but en tered into the spirit of the occasion and felt proud of their position as American citizens as the feelings of patriotism in their hearts were stirred by the eloquent words ot the orator. As usual with this finished speaker, the address met with un qualified approval on every hand. At the conclusion of the exercises lun cheon was served, and the particiDants had barely finished when the first approaches of the storm that visited this section on the Fourth warned them to shelter. The wind, rain and hail that massed their forces for a few hours and made a descent upon the scene developed the only dis agreeable elements in the day s occurrences. After the storm, however, the promised base ball game between Marysville and Helena nines came off' as announced and resulted in favor of the latter, who won by a score of 1!» to 4. A foot race and horse race in the afternoon concluded the pro gramme of celebration. All present pronounce the commemora tive doings a great success, aud visitors from Helena and vicinous places speak in the highest praise of the reception accord ed them by the hospitable denizens of Marysville. The Fourth in Helena. The true spirit of a national holiday was observed in Montana's Capital yesterday ; that is, there was a general relaxation from business cares, but no public demon stration, such as has marked the festival in days past. It was with no lack of patriotism or dearth of public spirit that Helena concluded to let the Fourth of July pass without taking public notice of the day in a celebration, such as usually characterizes the annual recurrence of the nation's birthday. But in obedience to a general desire, passive in some cases and outspoken in others, the citizens of Helena resolved to have no popular movement in augurated that would claim the attention of individuals and in a manner compel them to participate in a public celebration when their own private inclinations tended to a different observance of the day. \es terday every resident of Helena was at liberty to consult his own inclinations on the subject of making use of the holiday. Some spent the brief respite in the quiet ude of their own homes, while numerous others employed the hours of leisure granted by the Fourth in making excur sions to other towns where celebrations were held, or to rural resorts for pleasure and amusement. In the city everything was quiet and orderly, and the day passed without inci dent. In the evening the display of fire works by private parties made light of the darkness for several hours. Not a street in the city but had one or more displays from private premises, and those who spent the evening on commanding eminences near the city pronounce the illumination a beautiful sight. Between 9 and 11 o'clock the firing of rockets, Roman candles and bombs was brisk aud frequent, but after that only desultory reports of patriotic ex plosions were heard and soon the lateness of the hour caused even a cessation of these and the stillness of night, broken into so unusually, again enveloped the Capital City. Au Elegant Drive. One of the mast enjoyable events of the Fourth was a drive to the Hot Springs. A large tally-ho coach, drawn by six horses, which were admirably managed by Mr. 1\ B. Bird, was filled with young people. A supper of strawberries and cream, cake and coffee was furnished at W assweiler s, to which ample justice was done. Upon returning to town a good observation was found from which to view the fireworks. Alter serenading some of their more unfor tunate friends, the participants returned to their respective homes, pronouncing the drive "perfectly elegant." The following young ladies and gentlemen comprised the party : Misses Edna Hedges, Grace Fisk, Clara Holter, Mary Kirtland and Emma Hedges; Messrs. Palmer, P. B. Bird, Harry Walker, W. Barrett and Lon Parke. In the Probate Court. Jas. Yenuon, on the charge of burglariz ing and robbing the house of Johanna Flynn, on Silver creek, was brought before Judge Davis at this morning's session of the Probate Court.

Silverman's Sampling Works and Assay Office Gone. The Loss Amounts to $30,000 or $35,000, Partially Covered by an Insurance of $15,000. Shortly before noon to-day an alarm of fire was turned in from the Sixth Ward and the tower bell sounded its warning notes a few minutes later, bnt not before a huge column of smoke arising on the north ern horizon apprized residents of the city of the existence and whereabouts of the blaze. The fire department turned out promptly, but before they arrived and were ready to commence war on the dames the fire had gained snch great headway that it was evident to all that THE MILL WAS DOOMED. When the engine arrived the Depot Hose Company had a line of pipe attached to a plug near the mill, but the force of water gained from this source was so inadequate that the stream barely reached the roof of the building. The horse hose cart, driven by Will Franklin, who was one of the few available men at the station when the alarm came in. soon arrived and no time was lost in stretching a line of pipe from the steamer to the fire—a distance of over 1,500 feet. Water was turned on with all expedition, bnt it was nearly useless. The supply was short and the engine sucked more air than water. However, the fire boys turned to with a will, ran the hose up to points where it would do the most g*od in the | face of heat, whose intensity can only be properly estimated by those who were exposed to its fierce rays, and per formed yeoman service in their endeavors to save surrounding property. They had to contend with A STRONG BREEZE FROM THE EAST which fanned the fiâmes and swept them against the lumber piles and buildings on the west side of the mill. Their well di rected efforts saved considerable property, although they were greatly handicapped by the small force of water at command. A TOTAL LOSS. In twenty minutes from the start of the fire the mill aad connecting sheds were burned to the ground. The mill and ma chinery as well as the finished lumber, such as sash, doors, flooring, etc., together with all the furniture and fixtures, are a total loss. Part of the tools and such other articles as were easily removable were saved 1 but only a limited quantity of these, as the flames raged with such furi j OUS speed that little time was offered fo r the inmates to escape. The mill was a large frame building, SOxKÎO^feet in dimen sions, and two stories high. The second floor was used for the manufrcturiDg oper ations and the first, little more than a basement, for storage purposes and engine room. It was erected by the Montana Improvement Company a few years ago, and conducted by them until last year, when they sold out to Mr. V. H. Coombes, who was running it at the time of the fire. It is impossible to get at an exact estimate of the loss at present. Mr. Bonner, one of the Improvement company, who came over from Deer Lodge yesterday and who was down at the fire this morning, thinks it will reach $30,000 or $35,000. Besides the mill and machinery, dressed lumber in stock and partially finished work, sever al piles of rough lumber were destroyed— swelling the loss a few thousand more. Silverman's sampling works and assay office, which were located in the north end of the building,'were totally destroyed, en tailing a loss upon the proprietor, Samuel Silverman, of $2,500 or $3,000. There was an insurance of $800 on the sampling works in H. W. Foote's agency. THE INSURANCE on the mill, machinery and stock was $15,000, placed in three different agencies, and divided as follows : H. W. Foote, $6,000; Wallace, Styles &] Thornburgh, $6,000; C. F. Ellis & Co., $3,000. The $6,000 placed through Wallace, Styles & Thornburgh is divided among the follow ing companies, each holding $1,000 : Scot tish Union & National, Howard, Washing ton, City of London, South British & Na tional, Connecticut. The names of other companies holding risks upon the property we were unable to learn. ORIGIN OF THE FIRE. Although many inquiries were made as to the origin of the fire, no one could throw any light upon it. The men were working in the mill as nsnal when the flames burst through the ceiling. This was the first warning they had of the fire, and very little time after the discovery was allowed them to make their escape. All made their exit safely, however, and no personal inj unes were received. The destruction of this property is a serious loss, not only to the owners, bnt also to the city. The morning's fire com pletely paralyzed the whole plant of the Improvement Company at this place and will pnt a serions check upon building operations. This mill did a large propor tion of the city's business in its proper line, and the sudden suspension of its operations will be felt in more than one direction. It is probable, however, the plant will be replaced at once. Mr. Bon ner has telegraphed Mr. Hammond of the disaster, and by to-morrow their plans for the fntnre will be made known. NOTES. The railroad boys were instrumental in saving considerable property. When the fire broke ont fifteen or twenty cars loaded with valnable freight stood on the side track near the mill in imminent danger of destruction. Acting on their own authority the boys ran several engines dowr. the track and pulled the jeopardized cars to a place of safety. It was well, as the ties of the track where they stood were burned half way across. Assistant Fire Marshal Lang and ex Chief Curtis were on the gronnd and led , the van of the fire laddies in the brief bnt brisk campaign against the devouring ele i ment. Mayor Kleinschmidt and several other prominent citizens were present and lent a helping hand in rescuing imperilled property. The heat of the day, coupled with that generated by the fire, made the vicinity of the blaze decidedly tropical and caused the perspiration to roll from the persons of those engaged in fighting the flames. Sam Silverman lost everything. He was at the depot when the fire broke out, and had left his coat in his office. He . won't wear that particular garment again. The books and accounts of Mr. Coombes, I 1 which were in the office, a frame building I just west of the mill, were not injured. PROF. PATCH. Montana's Original Educator in Helena After an Absence of Twenty Years. The "earliest timers" of Helena are cordially greeting Prof. J. B. Patch, who for the first time in an interval of twenty years materialized to the pleased recognition of not a few old Last Chance friends to-day. Not less by the Herald people than others of the Dioneer settlers is the Profes sor delightfully recalled in connection with the initial educational work in Montana It was he who established the first school in the Territory, at Virginia City, Oct. 28, 1863. The discovery of the Last Chance diggings later turned him north to Helena, which up to 1866 claimed him as a resi dent. In 1865, mainly through his instru mentality, the Academy building on Rod ney street, (since demolished) was built, and there he opened the first school taught in Helena, and soon after he became the first superintendent of schools of the coun ty In October, 1866, Prof. Patch, summoned by business affairs, returned to the States. With others of ouï then first citizens—in cluding Judge Chumasero, Warren Toole, Cornelius Hedges, Capt. Wood, Judge Munson, A. S. Maxwell, Al. Rawlings, Dr. Artman, and Louis Behm—the trip was made in a Mackinaw. The boat, commanded by Capt. Parkinson, (who also had among his lady passengers the actress, Julia Dean Hayne,) successfully navigated the Missou ri from Fort Benton to Yankton, 2,000 miles, in thirty days. On the protracted river journey no serions mishaps occurred, but provisions run short and for several days, untfl supplies were obtained at one of the military posts, the party mainly fed on bull berries. Following his visit East, Prof. Patch gravitated back westward, stopped only by the ocean shores of the Pacific. For some years he has been, with his family, a resident of California, where he has been, among other things, engaged in educa tional callings. He founded the .Stony Creek College, in Colusa county, which be came a success ander his management. Latterly he has been a representative and correspondent of leading journals of San Francisco, and in that capacity is. after two decades, visiting his old Montana stamping ground. The Herald is glad to greet Prof. Patch, and we hope to hear from him on some of the early matters of Helena with which his name and work are indellibly associated. Building Improvements. The third floor of Pärchens Broadway block, opposite the Herald building, is going up in handsome shape. The modern front, nearly completed, in Vawter's building, corner of Broadway and Jackson, adds vastly to the appearance of a long time land mark of the Capital. J. B. Wilson's new three story business block, Main street, is one of the most at tractive structures reared in the city the present year. The foundation walls of the First Na tional Bank building, corner of Main and Grand streets, are going up in substantial form. Assistant Cashier Kleinschmidt has direction of the work. The one story building of A. J. David son, on Main street, below Broadway, has been wholly razed to the ground, prepara tory to the erection in its place of a mod ern three floor block of the best design. The building of Chas. Lehman, on Clore street, for mercantile * urposes, is progress ing rapidly. It is admirably planned and in its completed state will be an archi tectural adornment to that part of the city. Rodney street, below the intersection of Broadway, boasts of important building accessions in the handsome flats in course of erection by Ross Deegan and Crounse and Moffit. The third story of the new court house is pushing ahead as rapidly as the aborate ness of the work will permit. The public is just beginning to appreciate the gran dear of its architecture and the exquisite symmetry and beauty of its design. Com pleted, it will be one of the largest and by all odds the handsomest public structure in the Territory. Upper Missouri Navigation. Benton advices report a receding stage of water, arriving boats being obliged to "double trip it" in older to laud their car goes at Headwaters. The steamer Judith, which reached her port of destination from Bismarck yesterday, lightened up to the extent ot 100 tons below Benton. Down river shipments, it is believed, are no' im mediately menaced, although the excep tional "dry spell" in the mountains is lowering the river mach earlier and more rapidly than nsnal. Other boats, it is ex pected, will get through to Benton from below, bnt with divided cargoes, involving doable trips, in the upper river section. The wool clip of Montana finds its natural outlet by the Missouri, and it is a matter of no small anxiety that the cargoes in store and accumulating at Benton are moved as quick as possible. One thing is apparent : The steamer men are less scar ed than the shippers. For the Benton boats it is claimed they can navigate on a dew of ordinary moisture.

Robert Harris, of the Northern Pa cific, and Accompanying Friends. Yesterday afternoon the special train bearing the party of l'resident Robert Harris, of the Northern Pacific, arrived in Helena from the West and was sidetracked at the depot. The train contained two special cars, the Montana and the Misha waukee, the former belonging to President Harris and the latter to General Anderson, the chief engineer of the road. The party were met at the depot by friends from the city and were driven about for some time, finally all congregating at the residence of Col. W. F. Sanders, where they were enter tained at dinner by Colonel and Mrs. San ders. The personnel of the party is as fol lows : Mr. and Mrs. Robert Harris, Mrs. Bartlett and Miss Bartlett, the formera sister of Mr. Harris, Miss Duncan, a sister of Mrs. Harris, Miss Haines, Mrs. Harris' cousin, Mr. and Mrs. J. \. Scammon and Mr. W. E. Ogden, of Chicago, General Adna Anderson, Elwood E. Thorne, Cbas. A. Miller and H. E. Wadsworth. Passing through Helena over two weeks ago from the East the party went west over the line of the road to Puget Sound. They are all enjoying their trip through the Northwest, and express themselves particularly pleased with Montana and especially with Helena, our own beautiful city. This morning the party left on the regu lar train for the National Park and the East. Limited time and many appoint ments to be filled before ending their journey prevent their remaining longer in this city, although many of them ex pressed a wish to make a more protracted stay in Montana's Capital. A BLAINE MAN AMONG THEM. Mr. Elwood E. Thorne, of New York, was mentioned as a member of President Harris' party. One of the Herald's re porters had the pleasure of meeting the gentleman last evening, and even the brief conversation that passed was sufficient to disdose Mr. Thorne's unbounded admir ation of the Maine statesman, James G. Blaine. Mr. Thorne is a member of the Union League Club of New York, which was the resort of the Blaine men daring the last campaign, and is a politician of considerable note and influence in New York and throughout the East, He is full of enthusiasm for "the old ticket" and predicts Blaine's renomination in '88. He says he has been traveling throughout the West for the past three months and that everywhere he has met instances showing a strong public sentiment for Mr. Blaine's renomination. The Plnmed Knight has no more earnest supporter or more ardent admirer than Elwood Thorne. The gentle man goes from here t o the Mammoth Hot Springs. He will remain a few days on business intent in the Park, where he has a lease of all the hotels for the accommo dation of tourists. Early Closing. The early closing movement, inaugu rated a short time ago, is extending to all the principal conditions of trade in the city. Last night the clothiers and boot and shoe merchants joined the popular departure and numbers of them closed their doors at 8 o'clock. Among the cloth inghouses Ben Harris, Humbert & Kennett. Jacob Feldberg and A. Birkenfeld closed at 8 p. m. yesterday and in the boot and shoe trade J. R. Drew & Co. and Schultz & Co. followed suit. The enterprising dry goods house of Raleigh, Clarke & Edwards announce their intention of closing at 6:30 p. m. instead of 8, provided the other dry goods firms will do likewise. They desire to favor the movement granting the young employes a respite in the evening, and now propose to increase this leisure a few hours if the other houses in their line of business will do the same. What do the dry goods stores say to closing at 6:30 instead of 8 p. m.? Challenge to Fight. To the Editor of the Herald : I do hereby challenge Jim Bates, of Helena, Montana, to fight me to a finish with 4 oz. gloves for $50 a side, the entire gate receipts and the light weight cham pionship of the Northwest. Will be ready to meet him the last week in August or the first week in September, 1886, at Helena, Montana. WM. HARES. local light w^ght. Billings, M.
