THE blue bird affair.
[ hr Part Taken in it by the Miners' 1'nion of Unite. What Butte Keporters and Brother Penrose Said of it---Coiaments of the Independent and Herald. In view ol' their card accusing the Hek VJ j, 0 f misrepresentation in comments applying to the Blue Bird affair, we have gone to some pains to collect the literature j within convenient reach connected there- j with tor the lietter information of the of ficers of the Butte Miners' Union, who ! >eem to have overlooked others than our selves for their animadversions. We re- j finest their calm and dispassionate con- i sidération of the following matters of re- j cent publicity and the sources from which j they come : l'.KTTE SPECIAL REPOKT TO THE INDE PENDENT. Before the parade started it was an- j nounced that .Superintendent Booraem, of !he Bluebird, had refused to shut down. Although the mine does not employ union men, the leaders concluded they would pay : the Bluebird a visit, and the line was headed toward Rocker. As the column ap- i proached. Mr. Booraem. anticipating some trouble, telephoned Sheriff Lloyd, and later j that officer, with Under Sheriff Reynolds j and several deputies, arrived. When the union reached the works the superinten dent appeared and was waited upon by President Barker, the other officers and W. J. Penrose. The committee was in vited to the office and there a talk was had, in which the superintendent was as sured that the union had no intention of doing any harm, but only desired an op portunity to talk to the men. Incidentally he was charged with carrying men on the rolls at $:5.5U per day and receiving back a large percentage of the sum. He declared that the committee should not enter the mine, and informed them that if any at tempted to enter the hoisting works they would get hurt. The threat had no effect and the party started for the mine, insist ing upon the company of Mr. Booraem. When the trestle in front of the hoisting works was reached, some one of the party spied a piece of rope and in a spirit of mischief it was quickly made into a noose and thrown over the head of the superin tendent. That it had an effect is certain, for he immediately announced that he would open up the works, which he did. Al>out this time the sheriff and his posse arrived, and after a further parley it was decided that the committee, accompanied by the sheriff, could visit the men in the levels, which they did. As a result about thirty, mostly Italians, all that were found, were brought up and placed at the head ol the procession. They were in their digging clothes and gum boots.and attracted much at tention as they marched through the streets. When the hall was reached they were placed together in a conspicuous place and at the conclusion of the ceremonies a meet ing of the union was held and they were all initiated. BUTTE MINER'S HEI'OKT OK MR. PENROSE SPEECH. "YV. J. Penrose was introduced to the audience and prefaced his address with a lew remarks referring to the eventful scenes of the day at the Blue Bird in a humerous vein that evoked many bursts of rapturous applause. He premised by saying he wished to make his speech short. But he had a few words to say to the audience and the gentlemen of the Blue Bird [who were seated on the front row in the hall directly under the platform] upon the record they had made to-day. [Applause.] He did not wish any one of those gentlemen pres ent who had accompanied them from the Blue Bird mine to the hall to suppose that he had auy feeling of prejudice against them whatever. [Applause.] They came here as hundreds of other men came to the Pacific Coast—they had invited them. [Cheers and laughter.] It is only because they have been victims of misplaced confidence that they have not been members of this union before. He then pronounced a scathing arraignment of the nefarious man who had kept his men in their degraded state. He referred to Superintendent Booraem by name who sends to Europe for Italians and other pau per labor. He charged him with pretend ing to pay them $3.50 a day and then tak ing back $:!<) a month. [Loud cheers and applause.] He spoke of the rope wafted by the wind that dropped on the Superin tendent's neck; he didn't see auy person drop the rope, but it got there all the same, which was greeted with a running commentary of hearty laughter and witty comment from the audience. He described Mr. Booraem as taken just about that time with a fit of lever and ague and said he kindly accompanied them into the works, and they found the gentlemen there who came along EDITORIAL COMMENTS OK THE HELENA INDEPENDENT. The Independent is charmed with the facetious and good humored spirit display ed by the Miners' Union of Butte in the course of their anniversary celebration on Monday. It was woitby of that jolly ancestor of Mark Twain, described by the latter in his genealogy. Jack Shepherd Twain was his name and he was such a lover of fun that he used to conceal himself in lark street corners in London and run his sword through passers-by just for the fun of seeing them jump and hearing them yell, lie never neglected to examine their pockets, but he would laugh immoderately all the time he was at it and then retire in a paroxysm of merriment. The Miners' l mon had much such an enjoyable episode on Monday when they were out in gala attire, making a holiday in honor of their organization. They went up to the Blue bird mine at Burlington just to show their good will. The Bluebird did not employ Union men, but they were resolved not to slight it on such au occasion. They had a lolly conversation with the superintendent in which they laughingly told him he was falsifying the pay rolls. The supérintend ent seems to have been a morose and sullen sort ot a man who could not appreciate a good joke, and he did not enter into the spirit of the occasion. He even went so far as to tell the jolly miners that they should not enter the mines or works. This was doubtless received with hurrahs of laughter, for good feeling seems to have been immediately retored on all sides. One of the Union boys, resolved not to lie outdone in making good, solid fun for all concerned, picked up a piece of rope that was fortu nately lying handy, as if it, too, had come to assist in making a real high old time, and "in a spirit of mischief," just for the lun of the thing, the rope was made into a noose and the noose thrown around the superintendent s neck. Then the fun was at its height and the superintendent, with this most pleasant cravat about his neck as a token of good feeling, felt as gleeful as before he had been morose. He appreci ated the jollity of the situation. For the first time he understood that the day was dedicated to mirth and amusement, and entering into the spirit of the occasion, he gave the hilarious members of the Union carte blanche to the mine and works. The miners were not slow to accept the kind invitation, and laughing and joking, a com mittee, accompanied by a few sheriff's offi cers, who could not resist joining in th9 lark, went down into the mine to visit the non-Union miners. Filled with love of their fellow men they insisted that the non-U nion miners come to the surface and join in the festivities. No pleas that they were not dressed in their good clothes or had no time were accepted. They came to the surface, fell in with the fun-loving crowd, and, rather than spoil the sport of the day, joined the Union. Such a jolly time lias never been seen in Butte since the agent of the Montana Copper company left town one morning after spending a night enjoying himself with the miners. LOCAL REPORT OK THE HERALD. From all accounts, the miners of Butte had the j oiliest sort of a time on the occasion of the celebration of their anniversary last Monday. It was a holiday for all hands, and all hands "jined in" and made a merry l march to the Bluebird, whose workmen, | not keeping step to the Union, were un- | represented in line. The frolic reached its j climax when the column, halting at the j Bluebird, opened the ball with the rollick ing order to ''Turn out the boys," which the boss on the ground seemed disinclined to do. His opposition only heightened the hilarity, and in the very exuberance of fun the boss of the Bluebird lound his neck in a hangman's noose with the merry miners dancing and tugging at the slack. Oh, it was fun enough to make a mooncalf laugh*. And the boss of the Bluebird—he just 'give in" to the jolly jokers, and he al lowed they had a right to go into the mine, and to turn the boys out, and to put them in line, and to march them to town, and to put them through the Union paces, and to run things generally as they liked and at their own sweet will and pleasure. It was a high old time for Butte, and the local papers were not the least tickled and con vulsed over the performance. The Miner chronicles the proceedings at the hall and reports, with shaking sides, the laughter provoking speech of Brother Penrose, commissioner of arbitration. It was a big day for Butte. Never was fun so rampant since the great joke played on the New York agent who tried to ope rate one of the properties of the copper camp. The Bluebird pleasantry, we take it, will roll in additional millions of wait ing capital for investment about Butte. Catch on to the boom while it lasts, boys. I EDITORIAL COMMENTS OK THE HERALD. The Miners Union of Butte seriously marred their anniversary by acts per petrated at the Bluebird mine, where by violent means they intimidated the super intendent by slip-noosing his neck with a hangman's rope, and by the further pro ceeding of entering the levels, driving the workmen out and forcibly marching the frightened men to headquarters and com pelling them to join the order. Accord ing to the Miner, their spokesman assured the superintendent that there was to be no molesting of person or property, yet immediately after this assurance the acts stated were committed. In substance, in his speech reported and quoted, orator Penrose substantiates the violence, the re cital of which himself and hearers hugely enjoyed. A hideous danger lies back of such performances as that of Monday last, we beg most seriously to suggest to the law and order people of Butte. We grave ly doubt if out of the hundreds a score of rational minded men of the Miners Union would have willingly been participants in or spectators of the Bluebird acts had they known in advance what was meditated and intended to be carried out. That is an unwise and dangerous leadership which can head a body of men of the number and standing of the Miners Union to share in such a performance. We cannot be lieve it to have had the sanction of the cool head of the miners' president. Mr. Penrose, editor and arbiter, seems to have been the chief director and actor. Is he a safe man to follow? Let miners and others soberly answer. WHAT THE UNION OFFICERS SAY. In reply to the misrepresentations of the Herald, we wish to state that there was no rope thrown around the neck of the manager of the Bluebird mine, and that no threats were uttered toward that gen tleman. The Secret ol Kussia Iron. A Pittsburg dispatch says: The initial steps were taken to-day lor constructing a Russia iron mill at Freeport, a little town about thirty miles north of this city. Far ley Alden, a member of the firm of W. H. Rogers & Co., who will build the iron works, said to-daj : "This will be the first Russia iron mill ever built outside of Si beria. An imitation of Russia iron has been made in this country for some time, but not impervious to rust. Impervious ness to rust is the test of genuine Russia iron. Few persons imagine what a risk was run in learning the secret of the treat ment by which Russia iron is made. There are only three people outside of Russia to day who know this secret. They are Wm. Rogers, W. H. Rogers, his son, and Mr. Nichol, a nephew of Mr. Rogers. About eighteen years ago Wm. Rogers was sent out as Pennsylvania State Geologist to Russia. He had credentials addressed to ex-Governor Curtin, the Minister at St. Petersburg at that time. As long as he confined his explorations to the mines he attracted little or no suspicion, but as soon as he set his foot inside the iron mills of Princess Demidoff he was subjected to the mast vigilent espionage. It must be re membered that the men in the mills who know the secret of making Russia iron are never allowed to quit the mills. W ith the special study he had made ol iron-making before going to Russia, he was not long in discerning the much coveted secret, though he had much trouble to evade sus piciou. Had he been detected he would have been forced to remain in Siberia the rest of his life. A Frank Southerner.

Graphic Account ot the Killing of a Band of Desperadoes. Louisville, June 22. —In Kentucky's shameful and lawless county of Rowan was this morning enacted what will be be yond doubt the final chapter in the bloodi est mountain vendetta known in the his tory of the State. The culmination was reached in the tragic end of four desperate men, who forfeited their lives after resist ing the mandates of law, after the destruc tion ol thousands of dollars worth of prop erty, and up to this writing, the loss of 21 lives during the continuance of the feud. 6 Rowan county can now return to peace and State authorities, bas been for about a j week quietly organizing a very large posse j of determined men in the upper part of | Rowan county and in ad joining counties lor the purpose of arresting Tolliver and | all the parties who were implicated in the ! A special to the Courier-Journal from Lexington, Ky., gives the following account of the fight: The news from Rowan county is of the most exciting kind, as it appears to be an indisputable fact that Craig Tolliver is killed and his gang dis membered forever. Sheriff' Hogg, presuma bly acting under instructions from the j j ^ ; , . j > ear 1S 11 1 murder of the Logan boys some two weeks ago. Tolliver and his party, consisting of about ten men, were quite vigilant and went heavily armed to meet every east ward bound train at the depot to search for suspicious characters and to see that no one got oft' at Morehead only whom they desired. Sheriff Hogg equipped his large party with Winchester rifles and ammuni tion which was secretly conveyed to the rendezvous where he was organizing the posse. It was finally determined to attempt the arrest of the assassius on Wednesday, June 22, in the day time, to prevent auy women, children or inoffensive citizens from being killed by accident. Accordingly, at an early hour this morning, people living on the line of railroad within two or three miles of Morehead, on each side of town, were notified to stop all trains and inform the conductors what was going on in More head, so that the passengers and trains would not be placed in danger. The Sheriff's band of resolute men, numbering more than 200, appeared suddenly at More head, about 8 o'clock this morning. A cor don was first established around the entire town in the brush. The Sheriff then en tered the town at the head of about 100 well armed men. Craig Tolliver and his ten followers immediately retreated to a hotel which they had previously barri caded in such a manner as to make quite a formidable fortress. Sheriff Hogg then notified Tolliver that he had warrants for the arrest of all the men implicated in the killing of the Logan boys and asked that they all submit peacefully to arrest under the law. Tolliver's reply was that neither he nor his men would be arrested and that a hundred men could not take them. His party then opened fire upon the Sheriff's posse. Quite a brisk rattle of musketry ensued and the fighting was kept up prob ably for two hours. The only casualty for the time was a flesh wound received by one of the Sheriff's posse. The attacking party, however, were gradually drawing their lines closer around Tolliver's forti fication and the beseiged party finding things growing too warm, finally concluded to make a bold rush for liberty, fight their way through the Sheriff's lines and take to the adjacent brush, which, if once reached, would afford them a secure escape, but as they made a rush they were met by a tre mendous volley which killed Craig Tolli ver, Reed Tolliver, Jay Tolliver and Her man Cooper. The others of the gang got through safely, but as they approached the brush they were met with a volley from the outside cordon. This volley wounded___ Cate Tolliver, a 12 year old boy. and three others, all of whom were captured, except Cate Tolliver. The other three also escaped, but one was captured afterwards. This brought the battle to an end. POSTAL MATTERS. 1 ; I , I | ! Adjlisting the Grades of Postmasters.

MICHIGAN SENSATION. Mysterious Disappearance of Mrs. Al bert Brooks. Detroit, Mich., June 22.—A Yassar. Michigan, special says: The disappearance of Mrs. Brooks is again to the fore with a more romantic story than at first. Several weeks ago L. C. Merritt, of this place, wrote to Anna D. Butterfield, at Riverside, Cali fornia, asking for information concerning Mrs. Brooks. The following reply was re ceived on Monday : "Your letter of the 6 th received and contents noted. You say you were at Brooks' and read my letter to them, and you wanted to know if I had employed detectives to hunt up Aunt Jo hanna. I have employed a detective, and he has found her and rescued her from a prison cell, where she had been for three months. Also, you wanted to know if she had drawn all her money. No ; she has not drawn any of what was coming to her, but had a present of a draft for $60,000. Then her lawyer gave her $20,000 in cash. She had that when I saw her in St. Louis, about the 19th of February, hue is heir t0 a bout $300,000, with use for over one year The detective has had the luck to tind t h at much. It cannot be got without the pr i v ate mark which was agreed upon ^ 0Q when they last met the lady who has the care of it. It was to make her sign the mark that they tortured her so for, but she would not sign it, and I think she is very gritty. Tc e detective writes me that they kept her six days with out a mouthful to eat, and inflicted all manner of tortures that are cruel. I shall see that she is taken to her family, and shall try to get her there by the 4th of July, if her mind is so she can be moved, for now she is crazy. They killed her body before her eyes, and that turned her brain." This letter was evidently written by the same hand that penued the letter signed "Mrs. Brooks" and detailing the story of her imprisonment. San Francisco, June 22.—Inquiry to day has failed to learn the whereabouts of Anna J. Butterfield, of Riverside, who is thought to know something of the sup posed kidnapping of Mrs. Albert Brooks, of Michigan, who lately, as heir, secured $80,000 at Denver, Col. There aie certain facts that seem to be established, viz : that Mrs. Butterfield came into possession of private letters of Mrs. Brooks and sent them to a banker at her old home in Michigan, and that she had telegraphed money to her old home through the River side bank for the benefit of Miles Brooks, whom she claimed to be a son of the aunt who was lost. It is possible that Mrs. Butterfield is a neice of the lost aunt, and it is just possible that she is the lost Mrs. Brooks herself, and that after the receipt of the money her mind became unbalanced and she wandered from her friend. Mrs. Butterfield has talked strangely about the matter from the first. The amount of mouey she claimed to have in her posses sion varied from $20,000 to $400,000. Denver, June 23. — Detectives ac quainted with the case are satisfied that Mrs. Brooks, whom recent telegrams from Yassar, Michigan, claimed was held a cap tive in California by bandits in order to secure possession of her fortune, and Mrs. Anna Butterfield, of Riverside, California, are one and the same persons, and that she has not, nor never had the amount of money left her that she claims. They re gard the stories in circulation about her a canard. CHILDREN'S DAY. Thirty Thousand Little Ones Pre sented to the Queen. London, June 22.—At the children's fete here to the Queen to-day, at Hyde Bark, 30,000 little ones were present, ar the great lawn and made a pretty sight. The Prince and Princess of Wales and their sons and daughters, ac companied by a number of royal guests visited the park during the fete. The I children at once freed themselves from re | straint, broke the rope barriers, rushed pell mell towards the visitors and packed themselves in solid groups around them. ! All etiquette vanished. The Prince and Princess, who seemed delighted at their position, mixed among the children with perfect freedom and pleasure. The Queen soon arrived. The children massed them selves in an orderly manner on both sides of the road over which Her Majesty's car riage passed, and moved with it toward the stand, the assembled bands playing the nationaljanthem, which the children all sang with grand effect. The Queen reached and ascended the platform while the music was in progress. At its conclusion she pre sented a memorial cup to a little girl, who had been selected to represent all the chil dren assembled. When the Queen de parted the whole assemblage sang. "Rule Brittania." Mr. Gladstone, Lord Derby and Lord Spencer were present. A number of aristocrats lent their assistance to making the fete a success. Industrial League Trying to Revive American Shipping. San Francisco, June 22.—The Pacific coast branch of the American Shipping and Industrial League had a largely at tended convention in this city to consider I baric pomp scarcely equalled by that of remedies to prevent the decay of Ameri can shipping. The convention adopted resolutions declaring that Congress should favor by bounties the building and navi gation of American built vessels for foreign trade. The resolutions endorsed the bounty bill presented at the last session of Congress. The convention also adopted a resolution declaring "that this convention respectfully records its solemn protest against the neglect of the Federal govern ment to properly fortify this harbor, a necessity for the protection of this city and the only naval station on the South Pacific coast of the United States." The resolutions were embodied in a memorial to be presented to the next session of Con gress. ____ Dr. McGlynn Interviewed. Buffalo, June 23. —Father McGlynn, in an interview to-day, presented his case as that of a man who, having been sen tenced, was being forced to appeal, without any idea but that the result was a foregone conclusion and that he would be snubbed and insulted by the Propaganda. He as saults the church in Rome as a "Romish machine," and closes as follows : "The engineers of the machine, who are profiting by its shower and its emoluments, are really laughing in their sleeves at us for our excessive generosity in contributing Peter's pence to the support of a whole army of lackeys and flunkies, both lay and clerical, who surround the Pope with bar any imperial despotic court." Dr. McGlynn to be Excommunicated. Rome, June 25. —The period of grace granted Dr. McGlynn, of New York, is about expired. He has made no signs of submission. It is stated that the Pope will, without further delay, formally ex communicate him. ROYALMBUlf m WlH c POWDER Absolutely Pure. This powder never Carles.

Or Black Leprosy, la a disease which is considered Incurable, but it has yielded to the curative proper- ties of Swift's Specific— now known all over tha world as S. S. S. Mrs. Bailey, of West Somerville. Mass., near Boston, was attacked several years ago with this hideous black eruption, and was treated by the best medical talent, who could only say that the disease was a species of -LEPROSY-- and consequently incurable. It Is impossible to de scribe her sufferings. Her body from the crown of her head to the soles of her feet was a mass of decay, masses of flesh rotting off and leaving great cavities! Her fingers festered and three or four nails dropped off at one time. Her limbs contracted by the fearful ulceration, and for several years she did not leave her bed. Her weight was reduced from 125 to 60 lbs. lierhaps some faint idea of her condition can be gleaned from the fact that three pounds of Cosmo line or ointment were used per week in dressing her sores. Finally the physicians acknowledged their defeat by this Black \\ olf, and commended the suf ferer to her all-wise Creator. Her husband hearing wonderful reports of the use tt Swift's Specific (S. S. S.), prevailed on her to try it as a last resort. She began its use under pro test, but soon found that her system was being re lieved of the poison, as the sores assumed a rod and healthy color, as though the blood was becoming pure and active. Mrs. Bailey continued the S. S. S. until last February; every «ore was healed; she dis carded chair and crutches, and was for the first time in twelve years a well woman. Her husband, Mr. C. A.
