Hu>lV Kube Attempts the Life of His
Spouse and Empties His Kevolver
at Her«--Two Shots 'lake
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.
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
8 a. m.—Third mass, succeeded by an
instruction by Father Buchard.

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. |
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.
A bountiful repast was served, and all
kerned well pleased with the situation.

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
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. The accused waived
an examination, and by order of the court
was consigned to the Sheriff' custody till
Friday next, when the case will come up
for preliminary hearing.
The administrator's 'sale of the Blair
estate realized the sum of $2,600.

The Montana Improvement Company's
Planing Mill at the Depot De
stroyed by Fire.
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
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
The 9th session will commence September 2d. Spacious and elegant buildings—10 in number—afford ample accommodations for .VO resident
i students, divided Into three Departments of Schools. The Faculty comprises 40 members qualified to teach all the branches of the Classical, Scientific
and Commercial Courses, together with Law, Medicine, Music, Civil Engineering, and the Fine Arts. Photography, Telegraphy ami Typewriting
are taught by competent instructors. In the PREPARATORY DEPARTMENT students of every grade are given the best menu.- to picpare for the
Collegiate or Commercial Courses. The MINIM DEPARTMENT, for children under 13, is distinct from the other departments, with separate build
ings, grounds, etc. This'department is unique, and from the Sisters in charge receives all the care and attention required by the tender age of the
J pupils. For catalogue, giving full information and terms, address

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
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.
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.
