SHOCKING ACCIDENT.
A Man Dashed to Pieces.
An accident occurred to-day at the
Frohner mine by which a man named
Ed. Joyce lost his life. From what par
ticulars we can obtain at the time of going
to press we learn that a party of miners
were at work in one of the drifts in the
Frohner mine, beyond Unionville. Feel
ing the effects of bad air at the bottom of
the chute they started for the surface. On
the way to the mouth of the shaft it was
with great difiicutly that they withstood
the insidious attack of the bad air. Just
as they reached the surface of the ground
the man Joyce was overcome by its effects
and fell backwards to the bottom of the
shaft and was killed. His mangled body
was brought into Helena and awaiting the
Coroner s inquest was laid in the engine
house. It is not yet known whether the
victim is a married man or not.
A Had Accident.
A heart rending accident occurred yes
terday afternoon at the home of Joseph
Horsky. Mrs. Horsky was cleaning out a
desk and a box of pills fell to the floor,
opened, and the pills rolled out. Mrs.
Horsky, as she supposed, picked them all
up and replaced the box in the desk. A
few minutes afterwards their little daugh
ter, Josie, aged nearly fifteen months, was
taken violently ill, and in twenty minutes
she was dead. It is supposed she got one
or more of the pills and swallowed them.
Mr. Horsky was in Idaho, but received a
telegram in time to catch the east bound
train, and arrived home at 8 o'clock this
morning. The grief of the parents in this
sudden loss of their only child is unbound
ed, and they have the sincere sympathy of
the community. The funeral will take
plate from the family residence, lower
Main street < nearly opposite Gebauer A
Vergy's planing mill), to morrow morning
at 1U o'clock.
It is not yet known what the pills con
tained. Mr. Horsky got the prescription
for himself from Dr. Mcllhenny some six
or seven years ago, and the prescription at
the drug store has been destroyed.

A Tough Gang Coralled---Six Uur
glars Caught.
Yesterday morning at six o'clock a neat
haul of burglars was made by Police Offi
cer Clark. When the regular east bound
freight train pulled into the depot Clark
was hailed by the conductor and told that
was a burglar in one of the cars. The car
was pointed out and Clark raided it with
the result of catching six men in the midst
of their plunder, which they had ready to
decamp with as soon as the car should
come to a standstill They were as tough
a locking crowd as could be found, bat
they were marched to the police court like
so many lambs. Their names as they gave
them were Henry Hicks, Willie Hine, John
McCarthy, Wm. McSivin, Charles Byron
and Thomas Morrow. Col. Sanders will
prosecute them for the railroad, and they
will probably ne tried some time to-day.
The Marvelous Manitoba*
ilerliil Work.
■ •A Won
The art of building a railroad seems to ;
have reached its perfection in this age, and
this Territory has been apparently chosen :
to illustrate that perfection. The Mani
toba is building west at the rate of four I
miles a day, and steadily approaches this ,
town without slackening for au instant. I
Un July 9th the end of the track was hut i
422 miies east of Helena, having reached a
point 751 miles west ot St. Paul. Two
regular trains are running each day as far
as Fort Bnford, just on the border line be
tween Montana and Dakota, and by
Thanksgiving day trains will be coming
into Helena, and we shall have a third
direct means of communication with the
East.

My Personal Finances.
[by PRESIDENT GARFIELD,*]
By 1857 I was out of debt for college
expenses, and even with the world. At
the time of my marriage—November 11,
1858,—I had accumulated about twelve
hundred dollars—the result of my salary
and of lecturing before some literary asso
ciations. We lived very economically and
frugally, and—still continuing to teach
and lecture—I was worth when I went
into the army in July, 1861, about three
thousand dollars.
After about a year's service in the army
I returned home deadly sick, and, when
sufficiently recovered, went on to Wash
ington to serve on the Fitz John
Porter conrt martial. On my re
turn home I was assigned to Rose
crans, who then commanded the army of
the Cumberland. I was at home only one
day and two nights, bat daring that time
I bought the house at Hiram, for which I
paid $1,200. While I was away with
Rosecrans at this time my wife bailt an ad
dition to the Hiram house at a cost of a
thousond dollars. When I returned from
the war, in December, 1863,1 was worth
this house, costing $2,200, and nearly $3,000
besides ; that is, while in the army I had
saved about $2,000. v * *
If they propose to discuss the question of
honesty, here is a point. During my army
life, as the Chief of Roeecran's staff, I was
asked twenty times in a day to grant permits
to go through the lines and trade in cotton.
By doing this I could have made myself
rich ; and yet I came out of my two and a
half years' service, having saved, in all
that time, only two thousand—and my
pay as Brigadier had been three thousand
a year, and for the last few months, as
Major General, five thousand. I bad to
pay for my own horse and uniform, though
we have some few allowances. I had, of
coarse, to live like a gentleman and to
support my family, but neither my wife
nor I spent money needlessly. * * *
I served in the army up to the 5th of
Deceml»er, 1863, resigned one day
and took my seat in Congress the
next. I had not even time, coming
direct from the field as I did with dis
patches. to get a suit of civilian's clothes. I
delivered my dispatches to Lincoln andHal
leck from Rosecrans. went over the ground
with them and then took my seat in the
House. 1 stayed in Washington alone the
first winter, leaving my wife and our little
Harry at Hiram. When I got home from
that session, and we were sitting together
in our little parlor, my wife slipped into
my hand a little memorandum that she
had made. In it she had figured out that
we had been married tour years and three
quarters, aud had lived together only

A Suit Affliction.
Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Negus have lost their
youngest daughter, Bertha, by an attack
of brain fever, to which the sufferer suc
cumlied this morning at 6 o'clock. The child
was about 13 years of age and had been
in excellent health before stricken down
with the fatal disease. Three weeks ago
she was taken sick at her father's ranch,
on Canyon creek, and despite tender nurs
ing and the best of medical care had to
render the tribute death often demands
among the young and fair. The deceased
was one of the brightest and best beloved
members of the family, and the community
will extend their heartfelt sympathy to the
bereaved relatives over the loss.
The funeral, to which friends of the
family are invited, will take place to-mor
row afternoon at 2 o'clock from the Broad
way M. E. church in this city.
Inspecting the Veterans.
Capt. Henry Romeyn, 5th Infantry U. S.
A., is in the city from Fort Keogh, en route
to the West Side. Capt. Romeyn is In
spector General, G. A. R., Department of
Montana, and is at present making a tour
of the Territorial Posts for the purpose of
learning and reporting upon their condi
tion. He inspects the Grand Army Post
at Missoula on Thursday next, and after
that, in succession, the Posts at Deer Lodge,
Butte and Dillon, on Friday, Saturday and
Monday next ensuing. On Tuesday, the
19tb, he returns to Helena, and on the
evening of that day will inspect Wads
worth Post, and after that the several
posts at Bozeman, Livingston, Billings and
other points east as far as Glendive. Com
rades to-day are paying their respects to
the Grand Army visitor and endeavoring
to render his stay in the city pleasant.
A Generous nnd Extensive Loan.
An earnest Christian lady makes the fol
lowing offer to our readers :—"I will loan,
free of postal and all charges to such of your
readers as will promise a careful attention
and will pay return postage after reading it,
a book which in interesting style shows
the Bible to be a self interpreter, ami its
teachings grandly harmonious, viewed in
the light of sanctified reason and common
sense.
"1 want to put this book in the hands of
all the skeptically inclined, as au aid and
guard against the growing scientific skep
ticism. It is not dry, musty reading, but
truly 'meat in due season' to the truth
hungry. The light of this precious little
volume has made the Bible a new book, a
treasure, a mine of wealth, to many as
well as to myself. And I feel that I cannot
better use my means than in circulating
this work by the thousand." Address

Why Not a Liberty Pole t
As many inquiries have been made with
reference to the probable disposition of the
old electric light mast in front of the court
house, the suggestion is offered for what it
is worth that this pole would make an ex
cellent flag staff. The lights have been
transferred to the conrt honse tower and
the company have no farther use for the
pole. We understand the county could
bay it at a nominal price and as it stands
about in the centre of the park it would be
an appropriate and eligible place to hoist
the national colors on holidays and festive
occasions. ^
Dakota Laws.
The authorized edition of the Dakota
Session Laws of 1887 was printed by the
Bismarck Tribune, and the books are now
being delivered. The book is the largest
of the kind ever printed in Dakota, and lie
sides the laws contains the organic act and
all subsequent acts of Congress affecting
Dakota. The laws of the last session made
many important amendments to the code.
The retail price of the law is $3 for halt
binding and $3.25 for full calf.

A SINGULAR ACCIDENT.
A Horae Killed by a Runaway Team
and Its 'Rider, Ed. Hunt,
Seriously Injured.
Main street was the scene of a runaway
accident this morning that was one of the
most singular of such occurrences ever
chronicled. Ed. Hunt, a boarding house
proprietor at Park City and an old timer
of Helena, was on horseback riding up
Main street shortly after nine o'clock this
morning. As he was about in front of
John Watson's store a runaway team
belonging to Richards, the milkman, dashed
up the street. Whether to attempt to stop
the team or in endeavoring to get oat of
the way Hunt turned his horse to cross
the street, but he was not quick enough.
The milk wagon ran right into horse and
rider and in the twinkling of an eye both
were on the ground and the runaway team
had passed on. It was caught and stopped
a block above. As the horse and rider lay
motionless on the ground a crowd soon
collected. The man was borne to the side
walk and laid upon the planks. Doctors
were called, but as the unfortunate was
unconscious little could be done. Soon a
wagon was summoned and the victim was
taken to St. Peters Hospital, where he was
at once put in bed. Doctors Cole and
Sligh attended him. He was found to lie
badly braised, though otherwise apparently
uninjured. At three o'clock consciousness
had not yet returned, but the doctors ex
pressed the opinion that he was only suffer
ing from the shock and wonld recover.
The horse was instantly killed. It was
a white gelding, large and powerful, but
dropped like a shot deer when the wagon
struck it aDd never moved again. Ex
amination showed that the wagon pole
had struck on the left fore shoulder, inflict
ing a wound that bled very little and could
have beeu covered by a half dollar piece.
Nevertheless the powerful animal suc
cumbed to the stroke as to a death blow and
died without a struggle.
The runaway wagon started from in
front of a restaurant on lower Main street.
It is reported the driver left it standing un
hitched, a violation of the city ordinance
and a piece of most reprehensible careless
ness, if true. It .was only a piece of good
fortune that saved Hunt's life. The same
scene conld not be re-enacted without re
sulting in the death or serious ipjury of
the rider, and if the affair grew out of
negligence in not bitching the team such
fatal carelessness should be reproved by a
suiting punishment.
Pleased With Helena.
The Erening Leader, of Grand Rapids,
Mich., has the following item regarding
Helena, gleaned from a brother of Dr.
Sligh, of this city.
"Mr. Chas. R. Sligh, of the Sligh Furni
ture Company, has returned from a two
weeks' trip to the Northwest along the
line of the Northern Pacific railroad, ming
ling pleasure and business. 'Ot all the
places 1 visited, the brightest and liveliest
town of them all was Helena, Montana,'
remarked Mr. Sligb last night. 'It "is a
town of about 12,000 inhabitants, very
prettily located and laid out and con
tains more elegant residences and pleasant
and wealthy people than any other city of
the size I have ever visited. It is situated
on what in early days was known as "Last
Chance Gulch," and extensive gold miniDg
operations have been carried on there in
the past, and there are several placer mines
still in operation within the city limits
with a large annual output. Col. I. D.
McCutcheon, formerly of Charlotte, and
who is very well known in Michigan polit
ical circles, is living at Helena. He went
out West as Secretary of the Territory and
is now attorney for the Manitoba railroad,
and is prospering. I had a very pleasant
trip and enjoyed myself throughout.' "
HUGH McQUAlD'S MISSION.
The Bonanza Nabob's Journey to the
States---The Objects Thereof.
Before the oppulent bonanza operator,
Hugh McUuaid, rolled away eastward in
the palatial caboose, with special kitchen
and saloon attachments, which the accom
modating and generous railway authorities
had placed at his exclusive disposal, the
pilgrim acquaintance who, the day before,
had spent pleasant hoars in his genial
company, had possession of many of his
speculative secrets and confidences. The
magnificent share-dealer who had rfcfen
from the humble ranks of the press gaDg
to millionaire atfluence, divulged to his
new found friend, who had come here to
shed the patches of adversity and don
the garments ot prosperity, the beginnings
and advances of a career which, taken at
the flood, led forward to the
fulness and plentitude of fortune.
Hugh's heart opened to council, as
also his breast pocket to the liberal
extent of a hundred shares of the Wild
Horse Mining Company, the value of which
be estimated at $50,000 as soon as the
lead was located and the pay streak opened.
This was a handsome starter for the young
man, and Hugh wrung bis hand in fare
well as he boarded the special and steamed
away behind a double-header in the direc
tion of the l'rickly Pear crossing. Mr.
McQuaid's present American journey is
undertaken both from motives of benevo
lence and for objects of condolence. He
travels straightway to New York, where
telegrams preceding have apprized his
venerable and esteemed friend, Mr. Field,
of his coming. It is commonly reputed
that Hugh's keenest sensibilities were
awakened by the reported squeeze to
which Cyrus was recently subjected,
whereby his corpulent corner on Manhattan
was "basted" and the gray-baired operator
brought to the verge of collapse. Mr. Mc
Quaid has a broad philanthropy, and his
sympathy for the unfortunate never gets
cold. The ties of fraternity are especially
binding on him, and particularly between
these notable millionaire graduates of the
tripod the bonds of brotherly love can
never be lightly broken. Hngh will come
to the rescue of Cyras, if help is wanted.
Immediate cash is what often is reqnired
more in New York than in Helena. This 1
fortunately, is what Hngh can Bnpply. He
didn't, to be sore, cart away from Montana
any considerable amount of coin or
currency, bat he took with him
enough of what was just as good
and what conld more safely be carried—a
trank full of collaterals as gilt edged as
governments, on which bankers and trust
companies would gladly at any moment
advance their face vaine.
The letter Friday of Mr. Field would in
dicate that he was safely ont of the sweat
box ; that the briefly interrupted business
relations between him and Mr. Gould have
been res tored, and that after all Mr. Mc
Quid's assistance would probably not be
required. This proving true, the special
now flying eastward will in all likelihood
be diverted at Chicago and pointed south
ward, in accordance with some politi
cal plans of Mr. McQnaid with re
spect to next year's campaign for the
Presidency. Hngh's first, last and all the
time choice for the succession is his much
admired friend and fellow scribe, Mr.
Grady, of the Atlanta Constitution, in whose
behalf he has been setting up the pins for
a solid Montana delegation in the next
national convention. We shall hear from
Hugh later on when the wires tell us of his
arrival in America.

THE DAYS OF STAGING.
The Enjoyable Coach Ride Over the
Bonlder Divide Soon to be a
Thing of the Past.
With the advance of civilization and the
march of progress Western countries
are fast giving np the pioneer character
istics and wild attributes which long made
the frontier a chosen theme with writers
of romances, and lent to their stories that
indescribable charm born of the rough and
ready style of living common to the far
West. Particularly is this the case in
Montana, where civilization and settlement
have advanced with a rapidity that is
startling. One of the marked features of
the early days, and one that is fast disap
pearing with the advent of railroads, is the
system of travel by stage coach. Ten
years ago this was the only method of
public conveyance in Montana, bat to-day
hundreds of miles of steel rails connect
the remotest sections of the Territory, and
stage coaches are used only on short lines
to communicate with the great railroads
which have superseded them. Even these
are fast disappearing before the rapid ad
vance of the iron horse ander the system
of branch road building now pursued in
Montana by three great railroad com
panies. While welcoming with pleasure
the advent of railroads, it is not without a
pang of regret that the old time resident
sees fast fading away the gallant coaches
which so long supplied their place.
There i 9 many a sweet recollection
connected with them and the peculiar en- !
joyment afforded meets with but a poor !
substitute in the faster time and more ;
comfortable accommodations of railway 1
i trains.
Such sentiments were uppermost in the
! mind of the writer when a few days ago
1 he made the stage trip over the Boulder
divide, soon to lie traversed by the locomo- j
1 tive and passenger train. What a refresh
ing sight after leaving the noisy, dusty
cars to see drawn up at the platform at
j Jefferson a Concord coach and six spank
j ing horses, an ideal tally-ho picture and
one that recalled vividly the arrival of the
! daily mail in Helena before the era of rail
roads. The Herai.d man lost no time in
, pre-empting the seat on the box and soon
the coach was loaded and the gallant team
■ bounded away up the canyon towards
! Boulder. The day was perfect, a cool
i mountain breeze tempering the heat of the
i sun and rustling through the trees with its
agreeable music.
The Jehu of this line is Jim Young, a
typical stage driver, one who handles his
team like a machine, cracks his leaders
: with an expert lash of his long whip, spins
a yarn agreeably and makes the inside
: passengers "keep their seats" in a manner
1 that would do credit to the celebrated
Hank Monk. This day he was happy with
I a light load ami the way be made the
coach spin over the mountain grades would
: have been terrorizing to pilgrim passen
gers.
Reaching the top of the divide, a brief
: stop was made to allow Jim to fortify his
brakes with an additional strip of wood,
; during which time the passengers were
allowed to enjoy the magnificent view ob
tained from the summit. The Boulder j
valley, carpeted in verdure, lay below smil- j
ing iu the sunlight, dotted with farm !
houses whose glistening roofs made them j
prominent features in the landscape, and ,
surrounded by chains of lofty mountains, !
whose every tree and rock stood out in ;
bold relief in the clear atmosphere. It was j
i a picture never to be forgotten. Little j
time was given to enjoy it, for in a few
minutes the coach was started on the down
j grade and outside passengers addressed
, their energies to the task of holding on, as
the six horses trotted in a three minute
gait down the steep decline under the
skilled guidance of the driver. Yonng was
I careful and cautious in bad places, but
i when a good stretch of road came he let
: out his team and the coach fairly flew down
the mountain towards the valley. It was
au exhilarating ride and such as
would put one in good hnmor with the
world and make him mourn over the fast
fading glory of the days of staging.
{ The toot of the range was reached in ten
minutes and the coach was speed -
' ing over the liottom towards Bonlder,
only four miles distant, when an
accident happened that might have
resulted seriously had it occurred on the
I grade. The rear axle snapped, one side of
; the coach went down and the hind wheel
spun off on the side of the road. Young
j was equal to the emergency and brought
his team to a stand still in an instant. A
! less skilled driver on the box and a disas
trous runaway might have ensued. Poles
' were obtained and lashed under the coach,
which made the balance of the trip into
Boulder on three wheels, the [nervy driver
i sending his team along on a brisk trot, de
! spite the drag made by the poles. Into
I Boulder the coach dashed, the horses on a
I gallop, and groups of admiring citizens
i watching the novel entrance from the doors
and sidewalks. As a testimonial of the
Jehu's skill, one of the by-standers re
marked as the coach rattled np to the hotel
door, "Jim Young'« a good 'un and he'd get
her here somehow if he only had one wheel
to go on."
This was the only incident which marred
the pleasure of the triD, which as a stage,
ride, epjoyable by reason of the country
traversed, good accommodations and ex
cellently stocked route, is unsurpassed in
the Territory. Next month the stages will
lie taken off and this journey will be hence
forth made in the prosaic, every day steam
cars.
The Drummer Boy of the Rappa
hannock.
( R. H. Hendershot, "The Drummer Boy
I rl the Rappahannock," has jnst concluded
two entertainments at the New Market
Theatre, Portland, in which the best musi
cal talent of the city took part, including a
chorus of fifty voices. Hendershot is the
most noted drummer of his time. He en
tered in the 9th Michigan infantry in 1866,
at the age of 12 years, and served through
out the war. When his regiment was in
action he often laid aside his dram and ap
peared in line with a gun. He has still the
original silver dram presented by Horace
Greeley for gallantry displayed at the
battle of Fredericksburg, as also the beau
tiful snare presented by the Woman s Re
lief Corps, at Bangor, Me., on the occasion
of the G. A. R. encampment of 1885. On
his return from the coast, we hope Hender
shot will stop and treat Helena to an en
tertainment The Oregonians crowded the
theatre for two nights. Miss E. Wallace,
who visited in this city last antnmn and
made many warm friends, was among the
special vocalists who assisted in the Port
land" dram concerts."

The report of the referees, Wm. Wallace,
Jr., and A. K. Barbour, to whom District
Clerk Tatem s report was submitted, was
banded into the conrt on Saturday. The
referees say :
"We have carefully examined said report,
and each and every part thereof, together
with the vouchers attached and made a
part of said report, and compared the same
with the records of this court, and find said
report correct in all respects.
"The receipts and expenditures are item
ized, the latter haviDg vouchers rttached
to said reDort, and making the entire ac
count easily understood and self-proving."
The referees recommend that the report
be approved, and make the following sug
gestion :
The statutes of Montana do not provide
for any official record to be kept by the
clerk of this conrt of receipts and expendi
tures of trust monies paid into his hands as
clerk. The present report of the clerk is
made of his own volition, and not required
by any rule of this conrt. As the amount
of trust fund paid into the hands of the
clerk of this court from time to time are so
large, and as it would be a great conven
ience to the public, we would respectfully
recommend that, in the absence of a statute
to that effect, that this court adopt a rale
requiring the clerk to keep an official
record, in books to be provided for that
purpose, of the receipts and expenditures
of snch monies.
After the transaction of Saturday's busi
ness the district conrt adjourned until
Monday morning at 10 o'clock. Monday
being the day set for the meeting of the
Supreme Court, Judge McConnell adjourn
ed the District Court until July 16th, when
a session of it will be held merely to an
nounce some decisions. It will then be
adjonrned until the second Monday in
October.
TOWN AND TERRITORY.
—John Welch's brother is looking for
him.
—The Inter Mountain says the Red
Stockings, of Batte, will soon challenge
the Stars, of Helena, to a return game of
base ball on the former's grounds.
—The Governor has ordered the war
rants drawn on the Territorial treasury for
the sum of $500 each for the Capital and
the Meagher Gnards, under the militia
law, both companies having passed inspec
tion favorably.
Dr. Burleigh, of the Miles City Bar, for
some days in the city, when disengaged
from the Supreme Court sessions, spends
much of his leisure with his grandchildren,
the little ones of Andrew F. Burleigh, to
whom he is greatly attached. The third
generation may yet draw the Doctor to
Helena as a permanent resident.
—Ex-Governor Hauser recently pro
cured at Livingston a magnificent set of
elk antlers, which he has had mounted
and placed in his handsome residence on
Madison avenue. The horns are marvels
of their kind, bearing twenty-six different
prongs, thirteen on each side, grown in
perfect symmetry. The antlers are amo ng
the largest ever seen and measure six feet
between the tips.
—Will Franklin, agent for Tar box &
Co., of St. Paul, and other firms, reports
that his office was entered by a burglar
last night, who stole several pairs of shoes
which he had among his samples. The
exact amount stolen cannot be ascertained
nntil the goods on hand are checked off
on the sample list Mr. Franklin's office
is npetairs in the Morris block, Main street,
and the bnrglar probably effected his en
trance through the window. The case has
been placed in the hands of the officers,
who are looking ont for the thief.
—Ex-Judges Knowles and Blake are
seen among the numerous members of the
Bar daily gathered in the legal arena of
the Supreme Court Both these gentle
men achieved enviable reputations on the
Territorial Bench, bat the positions
neither of them conld afford to hold.
Judge Knowles' practice is probably worth
from twelve to twenty thousand a year, and
Judge Blake's services probably bring him
three or fonr times the amount Uncle Sam
used to pay him while on the woolsack.
—Inter Mountain : The Red Stockings
got back from Helena last evening with
colors drooping, the result of the game on
Saturday having been 11 to 33 in favor of
the Helena boys. The Red Stockings at
tribute this to the fact that they had to
play against most of the baseball talent of
the town, and not against the juvenile
club, as they had anticipated.
The above does the Helena boys injus
tice. Their club was selected from the
juvenile players of the city and not one of
them is over 17 years of age. It was a
square "beat," and Batte ought to have the
grace to acknowledge it.

Moderate Operatic Success.
London, July 13.— The first production
in London of Glinkas' opera, "Life for the
Czar," was given last night. Albaniat,
Schalchi and Gayarre appeared in the
principal roles. The opera scored a moder
ate success, but it is not likely to become
a favorite, though it contains some beanti

plot is clumsy and mach of the mnsic dull.
