From the Dallv Herald of April I. Death of Mrs. Eddy. Mrs. John W. Eddy, wbixse funeral took place to-day, died at her home in this city at 6 o'clock last Sunday morning. Her death, though somewhat sudden, was not altogether unlooked for. as the disease that caused it had afflicted her since girl hood. When thirteen years old she evinced symptoms of a disorder of the stomach and it soon became apparant that she was afflicted with a fatal malady. It was an ulcerous or cancerous affection of the stomach and was attended with the nioet intense suffering that attacked her at intervals. Last Thursday night she was seized with one of these attacks—the fourth in three months. Dr. Kellogg, her medical adviser, was sent for and relieved her suffering by administering morphine. Satusday she grew better and her physi cian and friends ^thought the spell had passed. At 2 o'clock Sunday morning she was seized with a violent chill, became un conscious shortly after and at 6 o'clock breathed her last. All efforts to avert the crisis were made but to no avail. The deadly disease had completed its work, the ulcer had eaten its way to her vitals and death resulted from a perforation of the walls of the stomach. .She passed away in the arms of her devoted husband and surrounded by loving relatives, whose presence soothed her last hours. Mrs. John W. Eddy, nee Evelyn May Harvey, was about 30 years of age at the time of her death, having been born in llackettstown, New Jersey, August 6tb, 1857. She came to Montana with her parents when 12 years of age and, except ing the period of her education in the East, has resided here ever since. She acquired her education at the Moravian Seminary and graduated at Meriden, New Hamp shire. She lirst met Judge Eddy in Helena and was married to him at Ironia, New Jersey, June 12, 1879. They have made their home in Helena and it was blessed with four children, three boys and a girl. The daughter died three years ago and the boys, the eldest being only live years of age, survive their mother. Mrs. Eddy was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. S. S. Harvey, who lived at Clancy for several years. Her mother and two brothers are still living at Clancy, while another brother resides near Carters ville. The deceased was a woman of most excellent qualities. Besides possessing all the domestic and Christian virtues she was accomplished in the literary and musical arts. Her writings were many and have been read with interest by Mon tana people. A devout member of the Baptist church, she devoted much time to religious affairs and by her connection with different societies did noble work in promoting the good cause. She was a de voted wife and an excellent mother and will be sadly missed by the little ones she leaves behind. Throughout a life of suffering she displayed most wonderful fortitude, bearing her cross patiently and without a murmur. She leaves naught behind her but the memory of a noble life, marked by a heroic patience in suffering, devotion to family and friends and a strict performance of every Christian duty. For the loss of such a wife and mother the sympathy of the whole community goes out to the stricken family. Sudden Death. \Y. A. Douglas, of Leadville, Col., one of the many bidders on the Montana Central Butte line, who was here in person at the letting of the contract, was found dead in his bed at an Ogden hotel the other day. His death is attributed to hard drinking. He had not touched liquor fer nine years, but on comiDg to Helena again resorted to the cup. Being a large, fleshy man, apo plectically inclined, his return to the use of alcoholic liquors proved fatal. St. Peter's Church.

[8t. Paul Mum.) Globe.J It. E. Fisk, editor and proprietor of the Helena Herai.d, was at the Merchants yesterday on his way home from Chicago accompanied by his daughter Grace. Mr. Fisk came through St. Paul in 1866, and at that time said Third street was the only street in the city on which any business was dene. He says Helena is moving right along with a steady, prosperous swing, and is bound to be one of the rich est cities in the Northwest. Last year buildings were erected at an aggregate cost of $1,500,000 and the building this year promises to overreach these figures. He says the city don't know what a boom is and don't want to. She has struck a healthy, successful way of growing and is perfectly satisfied. It was intimated to him that a gang of real estate speculators from the East were going out there to get up a craze. He smiled calmly and said the boys would find a class of men who could nestle right alongside of them till they got tired, if necessary. A Museum for Helena. The publication entitled, "Museum of Antiquity." comprises an account of the unearthing of Pompei, the excavation of Troy, by Dr. Kchlieman, and Dr. Ohay ard's discoveries of historic sculptures at Nineveh.

From the Daily Herald of Apiil 3. FOUND DEAD IN BED. L. Dickenson, of Deer Lodge, Dies From an Overdose of Mor phine. Last night about 7 o'clock L. Dicken son, ol Deer Lodge, who had been in the city but a few days, was discovered dead iu his bed in a room at the Cosmopolitan Hotel. Beside him near the bed was found a bottle containing about 18 grains of morphine and of a capacity of 60 grains. It is supposed the bottle had been full and the unfortunate man bad taken all but the eighteen ; grains with intent to commit suicide. Coroner Morris empanelled a jury and held an inquest upon the remains. The result shed no light upon the prime cause of the sad occurrence and the verdict simply stated that the deceased "came to his death from an overdose of morphine." L. Dickenson was a man about 45 years of age and leaves a wife and children in St. Louis, where he resided for many years. His brother is deputy sheriff at Anaconda and was expected over to-day to care for the remains. The deceased was for merly on the sheriffs force at Deer Lodge, but has lately been employed as a guard at the Territorial penitentiary in that town. He left Deer Lodge, Sunday, ar riving here that afternoon. Drinking and gambling were among his failings, though he was not perceptibly under the influence of liquor yesterday. The sum of $1.15 in money, several letters addressed to him and a pawn check for a watch and other articles, upon which he had been advanced $19 by a Helena loan office, were found upon his person. Later—It was learned this morning that the deceased's brother would probably not come to Helena and that the remains would be shipped to Deer Lodge this af ternoon. Ex-Sheriff McMasters tele graphed this moruiug to forward the body at his expense and it was understood that the shipment was to have been made on this afternoon s train. akbok day. A Time for Planting Trees and Im proving Property. The last legislature passed a law des ignating the third Tuesday of May each year as Arbor Day and empowering the Governor to issue an annual proclamation setting this day apart for the planting of trees, beautifying houses, cemeteries, high ways, public grounds and landscapes. The law was introduced by Hon. Will Sutherlin, of the Rocky Mountain Husband man, passed both branches of the legisla ture and received the Governor's ap proval. The law has many different provisions bearing upon arboriculture, among which are the following: That teachers in pub lic schools shall train the thoughts of youth in tree planting and decorating, by practical observance of Arbor day. That land shall undergo no augmented assessed valuation for a period of ten years, by reason of its value having been increased by the planting of fruit or forest trees. It also exempts from assessment at the rate of $100 per acre a year for eight years, one or more acres of land that has been planted in fruit trees, suitably cultivated for two years, provided the trees be planted not more than 33 feet apart. Under similar conditions, provided the trees be not more than 9 feet apart land planted in forest trees, kept in growing condition, shall be exempt from assessment each year for six years, at the rate of $100 for each acre so planted. Persons living on homesteads are also allowed each year an exemption of $50 per f acre from assessment *for live years, for each acre planted in trees. It aho pro vides that whenever any resident of this Territory has or may hereafter plant and cultivate for two years a line of forest trees, not less than six'een feet apart, and not more than eight feet from any highway upon which his land may border or along water ditches within his land ; said land shall be exempt from taxation to the amount of one dollar annually thereafter ou the assessed valuation of such land for each growing tree thereon for a period of five years. These are the principal features of the new tree law and our people should begin this spring to take advantage of its pro visions by setting out fruit or forest trees upon their lands. Other City Elections. Municipal elections were held also in Bozemen and Billings yesterday, resulting iu Republican victories in both places. At Bozeman the following Republicans were elected : Mayor— J. V. Bogert. City Attorney—Campbell. Treasurer—Dodson. Marshal—Clark. The Republicans and Democrats each elected two aldermen and the Democrats elected the police magistrate. At Billings the election resulted as lol lows : For Mayor— J. R. Goss (Republican). Attorney and Clerk—E. N. Harwood (Republican). Marshal—H. Terrell (Democrat). Assessor and Treasurer—L. Bates (Déni erai). Tne Republicans also elected four out of five aldermen. Montaua Central Matters. At a meeting of the City Council Satur day night the committee, having under consideration the application of the Mon tana Central Railway company for right of way of its Batte line across the northern part of the city, reported having partially looked into the matter and asked further time for a more thorough investigation. A petition was presented from residents cf the Sixth ward, protesting against the grant of the proposed line, as it would put a railroad between their homes and the school house which would mske it necessary for their children to cross the track in going to school. Ow ing to this protest and the fact that fur ther time was asked, the committee was given until Tuesday evening to make its final report. Board of Arbitration. Yesterday Messrs. W. J. l'enrose and M. V. Kirtley, members of the Territorial Board of Arbitration, met in Helena, pur suant to the call ol the Governor. Mr Eddy, the other member of the board, is in California. However the quorum organized by the election of W. J. Penrose chairman, and M. V. Kirtley clerk. Alex. Devine was appointed deputy clerk. No father • business was transacted and the board ad journed to meet whenever called together by the Governor. | | j THE CITY ELECTION. Republicans Elect the Treasurer and Five Out of the Seven Al dermen. Democrats Get Only Four Officers— Mayor, Police Magistrate and Two Aldermen. Barden's Tremendous Majority ol 407---A Strongly Republican City Council. At one o'clock yesterday afternoon the polls opened in the different wards and the mnnicipal election of 1887 was fully in augurated. Voters tamed oat early and from the opening to the close of the polls the judges and clerks were kept busy re ceiving the ballots. At seven o'clock the polls closed and soon thereafter the count 1 commenced. It took only a short time to complete it and by nine o'clock the final result was known. The Herald received the returns as fast as the count ended in the different wards and bulletined them for , the information of the public. The first : ward heard from was the Third and then followed the Fourth, Fifth, Seventh and Sixth in rapid succession, the First and Second, the two most populous wards in the city, being the last to complete the count. The returns from the four wards first handed in showed in which direction the tide was setting and the friends of Davis conceded the election of Steele. That | Barden would be elected was evident from : the start and also that he would carry a tremendous majority. Great interest was j centered in the contest for police magis trate. Tony Kuntz, or the "little Dutch- ! man," as he was called, was the Repnbli- ! can candidate and surprised a great many Democrats, who calculated on a big ma jority for English. After the first four wards came in Kuntz led by 27 majority, but English's big vote in the first and second knocked this majority endways, j though the result was much closer than was generally anticipated, Harvey Eng lish's majority being only 164, while Steele, the head of the ticket swung a round 244 majority. In 1884 English was elected by over 400 majority and last year his majority was 367, so that Kuntz is not to be commiserated on his defeat. Dick Barden's 407 majority was the crowning triumph of the day and testi fies the depth of the esteem in which the voters of Helena hold that staunch young Republican.

In the Frst and Second wards the Democrats elected their Aldermen Marcus Lissner in the First and John Worth in the Second. In all the other wards the Republicans carried the day by large majorities, electing as Aldermen Hugh Kirkendall in the Third ward, R. C. Wallace, in the Fourth ward; T. H. Clewell, in the Fifth: R. H. Howey, in the Sixth, and A. O. Simons in the Seventh. The City Council will Ire more strongly Republican than eyer before. Of the seven retiring Aldermen four were Democrats. One of these, Lissner, succeeds himself. The seven who hold over are all Republi cans, so that the new Council will stand twelve Republicans and two Democrats. These are Lissner, of the First and Worth, of the Second Ward. The reins of city gov ernment are still in the hands of the Re publicans, and though they lost the Mayor the result of yesterday's election may still be regarded as a Republican victory.

Canvassing the Municipal Vote-- The Montana Central Granted Bight of W av Through the City. The City Council held a meeting last nigt to canvass the vote for city officers and members of the Council cast at Mon day's election. The Mayor and every Al derman was present. The vote was count ed and showed the result as announced in the Herald yesterday. Upon this show ing the Clerk was instructed to issue cer tificates of election to the successful candi dates. MONTANA CENTRAL MATTERS. Lissner, from the special committee, ap pointed to investigate the reqnest of the Montana Central railway Co. for the right of way, made the following report as a minority of the committee: To the Honorable City Council of the City of Helena : Gentlemen :—Your special committe to whom was referred the application of the Montana Central railway company for the right ol way across certain streets and alleys of the city, respectfully recommend • That the company be required to purchase the blocks on their proposed line upon which buildings are now standing, to be fixed by arbitration, the company to ap point one arbitrator, the property owners to appoint one and the two thus chosen to appoint a third, with an agreement that the findings of such arbitrators shall be final ; provided the same can be purchased upon reasonable terms, and that thereupon the right of way be granted subject to such conditions as the City Council may estab lish by ordinance. Lockey moved to adopt the last clause of the report but subsequently withdrew this motion and offered the following resolu tion : Resolved, That the committee on ordi nances, in conjunction with the City At torney, be instructed to prepared an ordi nance granting the right of way to the Montana Central railway company accord ing to their plat and survey, with proper reservation and regulations as to the exer- j cise of such franchise. This provoked lengthy debate. Finally Howey moved to lay the resolution on the table. This was lost by a vote of ten to four. Howey then moved the adoption of the resolution with the words, " according to their p at and survey," stricken out. Carried. A committee of three, notably Aldermen Howey, Stedman and Watson, was ap pointed to wait upon Col. Dodge, Chief Engineer of the Montana Central, and re quest his presence at the next meeting of the Council, to-morrow evening. The new Mayor and Aldermen will take their seats in the Council at the regular meeting for April, Thursday the 14th inst. Hoback moved that the Beattie and Blake additions to the Helena townsite be stricken from the official map of the city, tor the reason that the plats of those sections do not correspond to or conform with the systematic surveys of streets and alleys of the city. Carried. The council then adjourned until to morrow evening. FROM ST. PAUL TO THE PACIFIC A Minnesota Tourist Party Guests Within Our City. Notable arrivals in Helena for the day, en route to the Pacific, are E. V. Smalley, editor jind proprietor, and H. P. Barlxmr, business manager, of the Northwest Maga zinc, and F. A. Carle, managing editor of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Included in the party of tourists are also Mrs. Barbour and Miss M. R. Holbrook, the latter from the treasurer's office of the Northern Pacific, New York—all of whom are to re sume their transcontinental trip to the Cascades and Puget Sound by special car to morrow. There is here always a very warm greeting for Mr. Smalley, whose Montana friends and acquaintances are ! many and whose visits hundreds of our citizens Lave on several occasions most ' heartily welcomed. His visit now, as j heretofore, is in part professional, and an | early number of the popular publication he conducts will depict in pen and pencil the grandeur of the Cascade country, over which the Northern Pacific will presently operate its trains direct to Tacoma. Returning later in the month, Mr. Smalley and Mr. Barbour expect to make a break in their eastward journey, stopping at Montana points for purposes of inspec tion of our richly paying mining properties -particularly those in the Butte, Philipsburg, and Helena districts, and their description and illustration in the summer months' issues of the Northwest Magazine. These are matters of much interestto Montana miners, in spreading desired information through effective channels and stimulating the investment of capital in inviting fields for legitimate mining enterprise. On this mission, we are glad to know, we shall have the presence of Mr. Barbour for some weeks, and we trust with results not less satisfactory to himself than to bonanza owners of the several districts of the terri tory he will traverse. Mr. Carle, as near as the Herald can guess, is making a tour of observation not unlike that undertaken in this direction several years ago, when he favored Helena with a visit all too brief to learn of the city fully, on what it lives and thrives and grows, or to more than cas- ually form the acquaintance of the peo- ple of purpose and progress planted here. He is an able editor at the head of an influential journal which circulates widely throughout a dozen States and Territories. We regret his stay is not longer with ns. - — » ^ -- - The Elkhorn Queen. The annual meeting of the Elkhorn Queen Mining Company was held last evening and resulted in the election of the following officers and trustees for the ensuing year : President—Henry Klein. Vice President—A. G. Clarke. Treasurer—Jno. C. Curtin. Secretary—A. K. Barbour. Trustees—A. G. Clarke, A. A. McMillan, Henry Klein, R. C. Wallace, John C. Curtin, Wm. Ulm, A. K. Barbour, C. A. Clarke, W. B. Raleigh. The contractor reported work progress ing satisfactorily on the property and the mine looking splendidly. First Love. An old time miner who flourished in Helena away back in the sixties returned last evening after an absence of eighteen years, and to express his admiration for his first love (that is a life in the mines of Montana) he remarked to a friend this morning that he would rather be hung by the Vigilantes here than to die a natural death in any other part of the United States. !

As there was no opposition to Mr. A. J. Craven the vote polled was small and he was elected as much by the consenting silence of hundreds of voters as by the ballots cast. —Helena Republicans did a lot of scratching yesterday on the head of the ticket. Wards That went solidly Re pul ican last year turned in big Democratic majorities yesterday. Davis carried but two wards, swinging majorities of 10 in the fifth and 40 in the sixth. —The Union Pacific has a large force of men at work on the Utah & Northern be tween Silver Bow and Pocatello widening the gauge. Superintendent Blickensderfer says the work will be completed by the 1st of August, wheu the narrow gauge traffic will be discontinued between Butte and the East. —Material for the new railroad shops at Missoula is fast accumulating and work will soon be commenced upon the build ings. When the shops are completed Mis soula will have facilities for doing every kind of railroad work, even rebuilding locoraotiyes. The Northern Pacific is building the works. THE A TH1CAL ATTRACTIONS. What Manager Maguire Did While in the East--The Inter State Law an Impediment in Theatrical Business. Meeting Manager Maguire recently a Herald reporter asked him somewhat about his Eastern trip and what the pros pects for the coming season were. In re ply Mr. Maguire said: ".So far as the fu is concerned I cannot say anything defi nite, as THE INTER STATE LAW will materially interfere with the theatri cal business all over the country, but more especially with the entire Northwest. You see, the very expensive attractions which even with the privileges hitherto granted by the railroads could only play at Butte and Helena with a possibility of profit for such attrac tions, and even under the most favorable circumstances, you would be astonished at the small margin of profit that large com- ! binations have made in this Territory, even at full houses, in consequence of the j heavy expenditures for fares, besides nights \ lost in traveling, which necessarily must occur by companies making for Montana. The inter-state law is a positive prohibi tion, and will compel many managers either to give up or return to the old sys tem of having stock companies and im- j port the prominent stars singly and sup- ; port them with the local stock. Many managers have already signified their in- j tention in this respect, and the Alcazar, of ; San Francisco, will be run entirely on this plan for the future. So will, probably, j Mr. Hayman run his Baldwin and Cali fornia theatres. Indeed, Mr. Hayman has been doing this to a certain extent during the past season, securing in New York the most successful plays and one or two people identified with their production there, and filling up with local talent in San Francisco. By the way, I want to say right here that California famishes the best actors to-day throughout the coun try, and in New York, California actors will more readily obtain engagements than those hailing from any other outside city. FUTURE ATTRACTIONS. "I have a pretty good list, if they don't cancel contracts. This I am sure some of them will do. The first coming attrac tion will be Mande Granger, who, I need hardly tell yon, has a reputation radiating from New York all over the country. Miss Granger will be followed by the Trebelli-Musin Operatic Concert Com pany. Trebelli is among the contraltos of the world what Patti is among sopranos, which means the greatest. "I will have my own company, which when they do appear here, will by com parison hold their own with the best travelling. It will be very strong both in talent and numbers and equal to the requirements of any dramatic production. Besides produc ing new plays, which I have purchased for my circuit, I will bring ont famous stars daring the season—I will have the great French actress Rhea, and have nearly closed terms with Mrs. Langtry. John T. Raymond and the Adelaide Randall Comic Opera Co. are among my attrac tions. "I would have Edwin Booth, as Manager Howe, of Portland, and myself made him a satisfactory offer, to visit oar respective cities ; but Mr. Booth would not take the ocean trip to Portland and has postponed his visit until next year, when he can travel by rail between California and Ore gon. "Much, however, depends on the inter state law or the interpretation the com missioners may put upon it. From pres ent aspects it will work very hard in Mon tana and will certainly cut down the num ber of companies visiting the Territory during its existence." | j | j j ] | j PERSONAL. c.im! over from Dee —Marshal Kelly 1 Lodge yesterday. — Vf.
