Notes on the Progress of Railways in
Which Montana is Interested.
Helena will soon have railroad connec
tion with many outside towns reached now
by stage. Among these places soon to wel
come the iron horse are Marysville, Glos
ter. Boulder, Gregory and Philipsbarg,
which will be reached by various lines now
under construction by home companies
under the auspices of the Northern Pacific.
On the Helena, Boulder Valley it Butte
road work is progressing rapidly. The
grading is all finished and the track is
within eight miles of Boulder, having just
reached the summit of the divide. But
little work remains to be done on the
bridging and trains will soon be running
into Boulder, where depot buildings are
going up. The company are pushing con
struction to the BO mile station from Jelfer
son, 13 miles beyond Boulder, and will
soon complete the road to that point, after
which further contracts toward Butte will
be let.
part of the Helena & Northern, leaves the
Northern Pacific at Birdseye, seven miles
west of Helena. This road is twelve miles
long, and on it the grade is about two
thirds finished. Here as on other roads
high water has interfered with the timber
supply and delayed operations. As there
are many trestles and bridges to be built
the road will not be finished for some time.
An extension of this branch to Gloster
is contemplated, and a line has been al
ready located around the mountain to that I
camp on a feasible grade. It covers a dis- j
tance of six miles, and will lie built this j
A line has also been located from Wick es
to Gregory, and railroad communication !
with the latter camp will be an accom- ■
plishment ot the present season.
The Philipsburg branch, running from
Drummond, on the Northern Pacific, is
nearly ready for track laying. It is
twenty-six and a half miles long. The
rails for it are now delivered at Drum
! mond and will soon be put down. The
middle of Augnst will doubtless see the
locomotive in Philipsburg.
The latest report from the Manitoba ex
tension received at the Montana Central
! office in Helena was dated July 2. On that
day the track had reached Poplar river,
j about two hundred and fifty miles east of
j Fort Benton. The army of graders have
moved on westward and a large force is
now engaged throwing np road bed a few
miles east of Fort Assinniboine. They are
coming fast and will makegood the promise
of reaching Helena this fall.
A departure has been made Irom the
original designs of the Manitoba. Instead
of running into Great Falls, as at first in
tended, the road will follow this side of the
Missouri all the way to Helena. At Great
Falls the depot will be located directly
across the river from the city, and a wagon
bridge is to be built connecting with the
town. This will obviate two crossings of
the Missouri by the railroad, which must
have been made to reach Helena had the
road gone into Great Falls. Now the rail
road will cror? -tvn River and come from
Fort Buford to Helena on this side of the

The Montana Central is making the
! dirt tiy on the Bntte branch. At the
, Wickes tunnel they are working under
ground from both ends. On the north side
the tunnel has been driven in to a depth of
285 feet, and they are timbering up close
The formation is mostly soft, though there
often occur streaks of hard matter from
two to twenty feet in width. The soft
matter, however, is greatly in excess of the
hard. There are about eighty-five men at
work on the north end, and they will aver
age about five feet progress every day. The
Ingcrsoll drills have been put in place at
this end and are now regularly used on the
heading. The contractors have been rather
short handed of late, and the progress has
not been as rapid as was expected.
The Bitter Root branch of the Northern
Pacific is under construction.
Surveys are in progress on the Helena.
Boulder it Madison and Helena, Gallatin
it National Park roads.
The Billings, Clarke's Fork it Cooke City
men are laying on their oars and awaiting
the coming session of Congress to obtain
the right of way through the reservation,
which they failed to secure last session.
The Utah & Northern railroad will
change its track between Pocatello and
Butte from narrow to standard guage this
month. The work will begin on the 21st
and end by the 26th inst. Passengertrains
will run regularly but freight traffic will
l*e discontinued during that period.

Government Upset and a New
Cabinet Formed.
San Francisco, July 9. — The steamship
Mariposa, which arrived from Australia this
morning, having touched at the Hawaiian
Islands, brings the important information
that the expected revolution in the Ha
waiian Kingdom has actually occurred.
The populace organized and demanded the
downfall of the ministry or abdication of
the king. The residents of Honolulu and
the surrounding country assumed the
police powers of the government, the vol
unteer military forces of the kingdom
joining with them. As a result the Gibson
I Ministry has lallen and a cabinet named
j by the people, headed by Wm. M. Green,
1 has been appointed. King Kalakua is per
I mitted to remain on the throne although
I divested of all present power, having ac
! ceeded to the demand for a new constitu
I tion and to abide by the will of the people,
i The king was thoroughly alarmed, and on
! July first called a meeting of the American
Minister, British Commissioner, French
Commissioner and Portugese Commissioner,
to whom he offered to transfer (pro tern.)
the powers vested in him as king. These
■ officials refused to accept the trust, but ad
! vised the king to lose no time in forming a
new cabinet and constitution, which ad
j vice he followed.
1 Walter M. Gibson, and his son-in-law. II.
i Hayselden, are under arrest, having been
: seized by the civic troops when attempting
I to escape.
The populace assumed control of affairs
; in the kingdon on June 27th, and were
î joined by the Honolulu Rilies and other
hastily organized military companies,
j Patrols were established throughout the
city and guards placed on the military
armories. Un the alternoon of June 30th
a mass meeting was held at the armory oi
the Honolulu Rilies, the meeting having
been advertised by posters in English,
Hawaiian and Portuguese, and long before
the hour of meet the approaches to the
building were thronged with all classes of
people, all the stores and shops having
been closed. All approaches to the palace
were barricaded, bat the royal troops made
no sign of meeting the volunteer troops.
Outside of the armory the Honolulu Rilies
were under arms. On the walls of the
the armory back of the platform were dis
played the Hawaiian, American and Eng
lish Hags. The meeting was addressed in
the English and Hawaiian languages, and
resolutions were adopted declaring as fol
lows :
"The administration of the Hawaiian
government has ceased through corruption
and incompetence to adequately perform
its functions and afford the protection to
personal and property rights for which all
governments exist.''
The meeting then formulated the follow
ing demand on the King :
First, that he shall at once and uncondi
tionally dismiss the present cabinet from
office, and we ask that he shall call one of
these persons named—William L. Greene,
Henry Waterhouse,Godfrey Brownor Mark
P. Robinson—to assist him in selecting a
new cabinet, which shall be committed to
the policy of securing a new constitution.
Second, that Walter M. Gibson shall be
dismissed from each and every office hqld
by him UDder the government.
The third and fourth demands were that
the King should make restitution for sev
enty-one thousand dollars of opium bribe
money and dismiss Junius Koal, register
of conveyances, who was implicated in the
Fifth, that we request a specific pledge
from the King ihat he will not in future
interfere, either directly or indirectly, with
the election of representatives, and that he
will not interfere with or attempt to un
duly influence legislation or legislators.
These demands were turned oyer to a com
mittee of thirteen, who made their way to
the palace and submitted them to the
The news had already reached the palace
and the Gibson ministry at once wrote
their resignations. During the progress of
the mass meeting speeches were made by
all the prominent citizens—all of whom
openly declared that the KiDg mast abdi
cate at once or accede to popular demands.
Before the meeting closed the fallen minis
ter Gibson sent a request for a guard of
Honolulu rifles to protect him at his resi
dence against the mob of native Hawaiians.
Od Friday, July 1st, the steamship Mari
posa arrived from Australia, bringing 200
stand of arms addressed to Gibson, Minis
ter. These were seized by the people's
committee and stored in the armory of
Honolulu Rifles.
After conferring with the representatives
of foreign governments on July 1, Kalakua
formally appointed William L. Green
Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign
Affairs, who completed the cabinet as fol
lows :
L. A. Thurston—Minster of the In
Godfrey Brown—Minister of FiDauce.
C. W. Ashford—Attorney General.
Cleveland Still Exercised Over the
Failure of His Expected Splurge
at St. Louis.
Chicago, July 9.—A Washington special
says : The President is still greatly exer
cised over the miscarriage outlined in his
lengthy letter conveying the Executive's
refusal to visit St. Louis in Septemlier and
the failure has given new life to the gossip
regarding the controversy. In the state
ments given ont at the White House yester
day, the information that Cleveland, as a
result of the fiasco, has abandoned his in
tention of taking a western trip, is made
prominent. Those who presume to be well
informed, however, do not believe the
President will give up his plans for the
summer and fall. It is well known that
he had an elaborate programme of travel
prepared, and a high official said yesterday
that it would be lived up to. The Presi
dent, he said, will be urged to go to St.
Louis during fair week, in October. He
will proceed from St. Ixmis to other points,
as originally intended. Mrs. Cleveland will
accompany him.
Dr. WcGlyuu's Priestly Head Falls
upon the Papal Charger.
New York, July 9. —The bolt that has
for weeks been hanging over the head of
Dr. McGlynn has fallen. He has been ex
communicated. A reporter of the Mail
and Express learned positively this morn
ing at Archbishop Corrigan's residence
that the papal brief ordering McGlynn's
excommunication has been received, and
that, accompanied by a letter from Arch
bishop Corrigan, it would be read in all
the Catholic churches in this diocese to
morrow. The Papal brief sets forth the
contumacy of the priest, and refers with
sorrow to his persistency in defying the
chnrcb, which has been so anxious to see
him repent and do penance for the scandal
he has provoked.
Plea for Sharpe.
New York, July 8.—The commission of
physicians who examined Sharpe say he is
sull'ering from a complication of diseases
and that he can live but a few years. They i
add that he may die at any moment. The '
foreman and, it is said, a majority of the j
jurors in the city have signed a petition to ;
Judge Barrett to limit Sharpe's punish
ment to a fine of $7,000.
Serious Charges Against Collector
San Francisco, July 8.— The Chronicle
devotes two pages to letters and affidavits
found among the effects of the late Abner
Blake, formerly Deputy U. S. Collector at
Port Townsend, W. T., who died under
mysterious circnmstances at Chicago last
May, while on his way to Washington.
The article shows that Blake, who had
been removed from the custom service,
held to the opinion that H. F. Beecher, son
of the iate Henry Ward Beecher, who was
collectoi at Port Townsend and who is
now the treasury agent there, had defraud
ed the government, and in one instance
had withheld from an informer money dne
him, growing ont of a large opium seizure.
The seizure in question consisted of four
teen barrels of opium, which was found
hidden in an Alaskan bay, having been
placed there by the captain of the steamer
Idaho. The seized opium was sold by the
government for $32,900, of which the in
former, G. M. Rouse, was to have received
about $16,000. In the papers of Blake it
is shown that Rouse received no money,
but that a Chinaman, named Ah Coy, of
Victoria, was substituted as a "dumy" in
former and given $133, although he signed
as having received $3,000. These and other
serious charges were made by Blake to the
officials at Washington, but no attention
beiDg paid to them, Blake started East
with the documents in person, hot was in
duced to stop at Chicago, where he died.
The affidavits include those of every per
son connected with the opium seizure, ifi
cluding that of Ah Coy, together with
transcriptions from "the seizure book" at
Port Townsend. The other affidavits
among Blake's papers were made by the
people at Port Townsend and elsewhere.
They charge Beecher with collecting from
the government money for expenses and
for the construction of boats for the use of
the custom service, and in each instance
larger than were paid out by Beecher.
In a letter written by Rouse from Chi
cago, he expresses the belief that Blake
there met "Billy" Minty, formerly employ
ed on the steamer Evangel, of which
Beecher was captain, and by him indneed
to remain at Chicago, and that while there
Blake met with foul play to prevent his
proposed exposure, resulting in his death.
Systematic Attempt at Defraudin;
Washington, July 8.— Something of a
sensation was created in the Treasury De
partment this afternoon by the discovery
that a trusted official in the Department
had been guilty of a systematic attempt to
defraud the government. The officer was
arrested at Wilkesbarre yesterday as he
was about to take a train for Washington.
His dismissal from the service was ordered
by Secretary Fairchild this afternoon. His
name is Oscar J. Harvey and he has been
employed in the Department since June,
1885, when he was .appointed chief of the
horse claims division of the Third Auditor's
office. It was while he held this position
that he perpetrated the frauds with which
he is now charged. On the 2d of June last
he was transferred to the head of the di
vision in the Second Comptroller's office.
The division which he bad charge of has
claims of the same nature as those in the
division which he just left. Austin H.
Brown, of Indianapolis, succeeded Harvey
as chief of the horse claims division and
soon after he took charge of the office he
discovered frauds of which his predecessor
had been guilty. This consisted of the
passage of 43 fraudulent claims for horses,
aggregating $91.000, and the preparation of
many additional cases of a similar nature,
which were under consideration in the
office. In most of the cases the claims are
for horses lost duriDg the late war and are
presented in the names of officers of New
Jersey and Pennsylvania regiments. All
of the cases appeared to have been prose
cuted by W. W. Wynn.tirstof Philadelphia
and then of Washington, and the services
of "J. C. Manford," notary public, of Phila
delphia, were called into requisition in
connection with the necessary affidavits.
In thirteen claims it was found that the
signatures involving the names of 38 offi
cers were forgeries. Subsequently it was
found that the Second Auditor's name had
been forged on the certificates received
from that office aud also that none of the
Pennsylvania and New Jersey cases in
which Wynn was attorney were entered on
the records of that office. The claims
which had been allowed were then over
hauled and in almost every instance it was
found that the Second Auditor's signatures
had been abstracted, together with other
papers. Harvey made a fall confession.
Powderly-s Views ou "Corners."
Philadelphia, July 8. —General Master
Workman Powderly, in the Journal of
United Lahor, pays his respects to the grain
and stock brokers in a vigorous manner.
Referring to the recent corners on coffee
and wheat, Mr. Powderly says: "The les
son taught our members by the experience
of the past six weeks is to keep their eyes
open and to keep them turned toward the
produce exchanges of New York, Chicago
and other large cities, and the moment that
a grain or produce gambler stocks the cards
and announces that there is a scarcity in
certain articles of food and that prices go
up in consequence, every member should
resolve, and resolve out load, that until
the unhallowed band of the speculator has
been removed from the central article ia
question, not a pound nor an ounce more
than cannot be avoided will be purchased.
This may be regarded in the light of a
'boycott' notice. This is exactly what I
intend it for, and had I the power vested
in me to make the order imperative, I
would order every member, so far as in
him lies the power, to place an.eternal boy
cott on every grain and stock gambler in
the United States and Canada.
Carnegie Indignant.
Edinisurg, July 8.—There is agreat deal
ot indignation manifested over the failure
of Blaine to obtain admission to the Conn
ed Chamber during the presentation of the
freedom of the city to Carnegie. Now that
it is known, it appears that the occurrence
was bronght about by official tact. Blaine
and Senator Hale arrived half an hour too
late. All approaches to the Council Cham
ber were crowded. The visitors had a
hard time in reaching the chamber door.
When they got there they found them
selves without tickets. The janitor did
□ot know them and would not pass them
in. Carnegie was at the time deliver
ing his address. Blaine sent a message
to the provost bnt he waited until Car
negie finished his address before sending
orders for the admission of the
distinguished Americans. By this time
both Blaine and Hale became disgusted
and retired. Carnegie, when he heard
what had happened, became very angry
und conld scarcely listen to the provost's
Educational Atlairs...Proceedings ot
the American Institute of In
Burlington, Vt., July 8.— To-day was
the last day of the meeting of the Ameri
can Institute of Instruction. This morn
ing's exercises were opened with a paper
by Thomas Emerson, superintendent of
schools of Newton. Mass., on "Free Text
Books." There are twenty States that have
j not yet made any provison for free text
; books, even for indigent children. In seven
i others there are laws allowing cities and
I towns, at their option, to furnish free text
books. In but one State, however, is there
a compulsory law, and that is Massachu
setts. Emerson next showed the success
• that had attended the practical workings
; of the system in the several States in which
! it was in operation.
Resolutions were adopted in favor of
! federal aid to education against trades
' teachings in public schools, and expressing
satisfaction with the growth of public sen
timent in behalf of a higher professional
training »f school teachers, and the devel
opment of normal school training ; urging
the extension of school supervision by ex
M. S. Montgomery (colored) supervisor

quent address, advised federal aid for pub
lic schools.
Aid for Evicted Tenauts.
New York, July 8.—The following ca
blegram was received to-day :
London, July 8. —To Eugene Kelly, Keic
York : I thank you and the Parliamen
tary Aid Association most kindly for the
very opportune remittance of £5,000, which
I have added to the evicted tenants relief
fund. There is a pressing need in this di
rection as the evictions have alarmingly

The wonderful efficacy of Swift's Specific as a
remedy and cure for rheumatism and all Mood dis
eases, has never had a more conspicuous Illustration
than this case affords. The candid, unsolicited and
emphatic testimony given by the venerable gentle
man must be accepted as convincing and conclusive.
The writer Is a prominent citizen of Mississippi. The
gentleman to whom Mr. Martin refers, and to whom
he is Indebted for the advice to which he owes Ms
final relief from years of suffering. Is Mr. King, for
muny years the popular night clerk of the Lawrence
House, at Jackson.
Jacksox, Miss., April 29, 18s7.
Thk Swift SntrtFlc Compact, Atlanta, Ga. :
Gentlemen—l have been an Invalid pensioner for
forty years, having contracted pulmonary and other
dUtases In the Mexican War, but not till the 1st of
March, 1875, did I feel any symptoms of rheumatism.
On that day I was suddenly stricken with that dis
ease In both hips and ankles. For twenty days I
walked on crutches. Then the pain was less violent,
but It shifted from Joint to Joint. For weeks I would
be totally disabled, either on one side of my body or
the other. The pain never left me a moment for
eleven years and seven months—that Is from March 1 .
1875, when I was first attacked, to October 1, 1S86,
when I was cured. During these eleven years of in
tense suffering I tried innumerable prescriptions
from various physicians, and tried everything sug
gested by friends, but if I ever received the least
lienefit from any medicine taken internally or ex
ternally, I am not aware of It. Finally, about the
first of September, I made arrangements" to go to the
Hot Springs of Arkansas, having despaired of every
other remedy, when I accidentally met an old-ac
quaintance, Mr. King, now of the"Lawrence House
of t his city. He had once been a great sufferer from
rheumatism, and, as I supposed, had been cured
by a visit to Hot Springs. But when I met him ho
told me that his visit to the Hot Springs was in vain
—lie found no relief. On his return from Hot Springs
he heard, for the first time, of the S. S. S. as a remedv
for rheumatism. He tried it and six bottles made a
complete cure. Several years have passed since, but
he has had no return of the disease.
I Immediately returned to try it. In September I
well—as far as the rheumatism was concerned. All
pain had dlsapitiared. and I have not felt a twinge
I have no interest in making this statement other
than the hope that it may direct some other sufferer
to a sure source of relief, and if it has this result I
am well rewarded for my trouble. X am verv re
spectfully aud truly your frleud.

I have suffered all my life with skiu diseases of

I was troubled with Salt Rheum for a number
of years, so that the skin entirely came off one of
my hands from the finger tips to the wrist. I
tried remedies and doctors' prescriptions to no
purpose until I commenced taking Cuticura

Catarrti to Coiisiiiptioii.
Catarrh in its destructive force stanos next to
i and undoubtedly leads on to consumption. It is
therefore singular that those afflicted with this
fearful disease should not make it the object of
their lives to rid themselves of it. Deceptive
remedies coneoetel by ignorant pretenders to
medical knowledge have weakened the confi
dence of the great majority of sufferers in all ad
vertised remedies. They become resigned to a
life of misery rather than torture themselves
with doubtful palliatives.
But this will never do Catarrh must lie met
at every stage and combatted with all our might.
In many eases the disease has assumed danger
ous symptoms. The bones and cartilage of the |
nose, the organs of hearing, of seeing and of
tasting so affected as to be useless, the uvula so
elongated, the throat so inflamed and irritated
as to produce a constant and increasing cough.
Sanford's Radical Cure meets every phase
of Catarrh, from a simple head cold to the uiost
loathsome and destructive stages. It is local and j
constitutional. Instant in relieving, permanent
in curing, safe economical and never-failing.
Each psekage contains one bottle of the Radi
cal Cure, one box Catarrhal Solvent, and an
Improved Ishai.ee, with treatise; price, 81.
