One of the .Most Eminent Lawyers of
the Pacific Coast Expires While
Journeying Home.
A. A. Cohen, Esq., whose death on a
Union Pacific train yesterday is announced
in the dispatches, was one of the ablest
lawyers of the California Bar and ranked
among the very first of railway attorneys
of the country. Excepting a short inter
val he was for years in the employ in his
professional capacity of the Central Pacific
Company, with a salary the largest paid to
any railroad attorney in the United
States. Cohen was among the very
wealthiest of the Hebrews of the Pacific
coast, his possessions counting up into the
millions. In the later seventies Cohen was
one of the Central Pacific officials dis
patched to Montana in connection with the
then proposed railway extension from Cor
rinne to Helena, and at that time formed
the acquaintance of many of our people. His
estate across the Bay of San Francisco, a
lew miles from Alameda, is one of the most
magnificent in California. Many hundreds
of distinguished personages from every
part of the world have in the years past
enjoyed the generous hospitality of Mr.
and Mre. Cohen at their country home.
Numbers of Montanians have been their
guests—of our own citizens, ex-Governor
Hauser, Col. W. F. Sanders, the late Sur
veyor General Blaine, the editor of the
Hekald and others. Mr. Cohen fell ill
while in New York, and his special car was
dispatched to convey him home. His
death occurred near Sidney, Neb., while
journeying to the coast. His age was about
60 years.
Library Books En Route.
The Public Library authorities received
to-day a bill of about 400 volumes of new
books ordered some time since through a
Philadelphia house. These books were
shipped on the -th inst. by freight ; the
difference in time by express did not seem
to justify paying twelve and a half cents
per pound, as was charged on the last lot
received by express. Three-fourths of this
lot of books are of the class termed novels
and by many denominated trash, but the
class of readers demanding this kind of
reading constitutes much the larger por
tion of the patrons of the library and
could not be ignored. There is, however,
a considerable portion of solid reading of
the more permanent kind, including his
tory, travel, biography, science and art.
There is quite a portion also for the
younger readers. When the money is paid
in for taxes other orders will soon follow,
and any who have in mind desirable books
that they wish purchased are requested to
give the titles to the librarian, so that they
may be included in the next order, which
will be made soon.
AnotherGrand Jury.
Judge McConnell announced this morn
ing that another grand jury would be sum
moned for to-morrow. The immediate oc
casion of this is the failure of an indict
ment against a man named Bereube, charged
with removing mortgaged property. It
seems that one of the grand jurors was the
prosecuting witness. Messrs. Botkin and
Balliet made a motion to quash on this
ground, and alter argument this morning
the court sustained the motion, but re
manded the prisoner. Aside from this case
it is probable that the Judge will instruct
the grand jury to investigate some other
matters, among the rest the condition of
the county poor house.
A Rand ot Bovines.
Yesterday a Northern Pacific train
landed 240 head of young cattle at the
Helena stock yards for Thomas Crahan, of
Jefferson county. The bunch was bought
in Oregon by Sir. Shirley and delivered
here per contract. The cattle will be win
tered at Cloverdale ranch, near Bedford—a
fine property formerly owned by Van H.
Fisk, and purchased by Mr. Crahan for
stock raising purposes.
Mr. Ilannaford's Illness.
J. M. Hannaford, general traffic manager
of the Northern Pacific railroad, was
stricken with paralysis at St Paul, Friday
last, and telegraphic advices received at
the Northern Pacific headquarters in Hel
ena, yesterday said : "Mr. Hannaford is
gaining every day and hopes to be able to
resume work within ten days or two weeks.
The cause of his illness was the bursting of
a small blood vessel in the head ; his mind
is perfectly clear, however.''
Attempted Suicide.
Belle Davis, a well known Bridge street
cyprian, attempted suicide yesterday morn
ing by taking morphine. She was discov
ered before the deadly drug had done its
work, and by the prompt application of
vigorous antidotal treatment her life was
Murdered His Wile.
Granite, M. T., November 17.—[Spe
cial to »he Herald.]—A man at Granite by
the name of Scott shot his wife through
the head last night or early this morning.
It is supposed he was drunk or did not
realize what he was doing. Some neigh
bors went to the house and found Mrs.
Scott lying on the floor dead and the mur
derer sitting up in bed with a gun by his
side. Scott has been arrested and jailed.
The marriage of Mr. Edward H. Cooney
to Miss Georgia Day, of Wickes, was sol
emnized last evening at 8 o'clock by the
Rev. Father Palladino in the parlor of the
episcopal residence. Mr. D. W. Summer
was l>est man and Miss Etta Cooney, sister
of the groom, of No. 18 S. Rodney street,
bridesmaid. After the ceremony the par
ties returned to the residence of Mr. Thos.
Cooney, on Rodney street, where handsome
presents were displayed and a pleasant
evening passed among a happy party con
sisting of a few invited guests of the fam
ily. The groom's parents welcomed their
friends by a tempting spread of an elegant
supper where delicious champagne and
coffee were the beverages. After a pleas
ant evening the bride and groom repaired
to the Merchants Hotel, where they
have taken rooms until after the railroad
celebration. Mr. Edward Cooney is a well
to do business man of Wickes and the
bride is a handsome miss, late of Minne

An Able Protector.
If there Is a more able protector against the
incursions of disease than Hostetter's Stomach
Bitters, we have yet to learn It. Against the
periodic attacks of fever and ague it affords a
sure defense, it renews waning vitality, and
counteracts the infirmities of age; it prevents
dyspepsia from becoming chronic, and eventu
ally annihilates it. It rouses the iiv<*r and kid
neys when dormant, nnd insures a regular habit
of body. To the nervous itOis of inestimable
)>enefit. Imparting steadiness and vigor into an
enfeebled physique. The term, "delicate
health," is usually another name for debility.
While the Bitters is procurable the weak need
never despair of physical reinforcement. Per
sons whose avocations are sedentary and la
borious, or Involve exposure to unfavorable cli
matic inti uences. will also find the Bitters an
able protector. novlS 21-23gw2t

Northern Pacific Men Obstructing the
Montana Central Advance—De
laying Operations.
By telephone from the Woolston Water
Works, near the scene of the railroad oper
ations, the Herald learns that the North
era Pacific people and the Montana Central
track-layers have come in conflict At
noon to-day the end of the Montana Cen
tral track reached a point two miles from
Helena, and shortly afterwards crossed
the Northern Pacific without opposition. It
will be remembered that the grade first
made from that point into the city limit
by the Montana Central proved to be on the
N. P. right of way The M. C. a month
ago gave np this grade and bnilt another
one further south and, as they supposed
without the limits of the N. P. right of
way. As already chronicled, the Northern
Pacific took possession of the first grade a
few days ago by laying track on it To
day the N. P. sent oat a large force of men
to take possession of and hold the
second grade, which they claim
also on Northern Pacific gronnd
A train was dispatched from Helena and
stopped right on the crossing of the Mon
tana Central. The latter are still distribut
ing ties ahead, bat laying rails has been
suspended. A party of Northern Pacific
officials, including Col. Sanders, the attor
ney, and General Agent Stokes, were oat
at the scene this afternoon.
Three o'clock advices give a different
account of the tronble. The Northern
Pacific ran a work train down their new
track on the abandoned Montana Central
grade and stopped on the crossing of the
Montana Central track. They held this
position for about two hours,
obstructing work for that period, when
orders were received from St Paul to
make no further opposition. Rumor bas it
that the N. P. intended to get a train in
from the west and stop it near the stock
yards to obstruct the passage of the Mon
tana Central at the crossing of the main
line, but failing in this adopted the course
just detailed.
Helena Turns Out a Large Crowd to
Witness the Performances of
Montana Central Track
All day yesterday the valley road be
tween the city and the Scratch Gravel
buttes presented an animated scene. Hun
dreds, nay thonsands of people, snatched a
few hours from their daily duties to drive
out to the end of the approaching railroad
to witness the feats of track laying per
formed by the railroad-building army of
Donald Grant. A continuous stream of
carriages, baggies and vehicles of every
description poured over the road from
morning till night, carrying carions spec
tators to and from the end of the track
The forenoon was pleasant, bat in the af
ternoon a cold wind sprang np, making a
pleasure drive somewhat difficult of
accomplishment. But for all that
people went and enjoyed it, too. Nor
was the visitation confined to the men.
Numbers of the fair sex, scorning the wea
ther, faced the biting breezes in the com
pany of their escorts, and enjoyed the sight
afl'orded by the track-laying spectacle. To
many the scene was novel—in fact to all ;
for, though numbers had seen the North
ern Pacific in course of construction, none
had ever witnessed such a rapid perform
At the time of the writer's visit, late in
the afternoon, the engines and construction
train stood right at the base of the wooded
butte that juts out into the valley, while
the tie-setting and rail-laying was going
on almost a mile in advance. From the
trains to the front was a scene of bastle
and activity that only by thoee who have
seen !can be appreciated. Alongside
of the road bed, over foothill
and field hundreds of teams
both horses and males, haaling loads of
ties to the front, forced their way, and by
the time one cavalcade passed a well de
fined and dnsty wagon road appeared
where ten minntes previous not a wheel
mark was visible. Ties were thus dis
tributed in advance of the rail layers, who
followed some hundred yards behind.
These men took the rails from the dis
tributing car, drawn over the track by
horses or mules, which made a kind of tow
path on each side of the ties, being at
tached to the flat car by long ropes in canal
boat style, l^niek as the rails were laid
the distributing car was pushed forward
before they were joined to repeat the
operation. As the car passed on, men
dropped on their knees and clapped on the
"fish plates,' 7 which join together the rails,
patting in the bolts and screwing the burrs
home so fast that it seemed hardly
to commence before it was done. Next
came the spikere, working in pairs, who
spiked the rails to the ties. A third man
held the tie close to the rail with a crow
bar. while the dno with their hnge ham
mers placed the spikes, one on each side of
the rail, and drove them home jin a trice.
< >ccasionally a tie was missed by the first
gaDg and a second «piking crew followed
to perform what was left undone. Then
came the last gang of straightenere. These
were armed with crowbars used as levers
and shoved the track from one or the other
side in obedience to the directions of a
foreman who stood in the rear, "lining
them in."
And the celerity with which everything
was done! It fairly made one's head swim.
No sooner did one wagon nnload its ties
than the driver tamed about and drove
back to the source of supplies at a rapid
gallop. Tbe writer counted fifteen teams
in one line going back to the con
struction train, all galloping as tight
as the speed of the animals would
allow. In every other department of the
work the same hurry and bastle was ex
hibited and tbe marvellous performance
went on with startling rapidity. All the
men were in good humor and with smil
ing faces went through their allotted tasks
as though railroad building was the rarest
and most enjoyable sport in the world.
Altogether they were the jolliest kind of
a crew and each seemed to vie with the
other in doing the fastest work.
At the trains the crew of engine men
and train hands attended to their portion
of the work. Engines No. 155 and No. 55,
of St. P. M. & M. Ry., are supplying the
motive power and have come all the way
from Minot, Dakota, this year, poshing the
new railroad across the plains of Dakota
and Montana for over 600 miles. No.
155 was in the lead and bore evergreen
decorations. Her crew, consisting of Frank
Staph, engineer, Fireman Sanders and
others, stood with smiling faces in the cab
and greeting all comers with a kindly wel
Donald Grant, the celebrated contractor,
was everywhere along the line. His office
is in one of the hnge care in front of the
engines, and there he found time yesterday
to receive and welcome many Helena visit
ors. He was mostly, however, along the
line, directing the work and seeing to it in
First Freight.
It is learned that Mr. Boos has arranged
to receive the first through car load of
freight over the Manitoba-Montana Cen
tral. The car, elaborately placarded, is
expected early next week.

Arrival of the New Railroad--Prepa
rations for the Jubilee.]
To-day, at noon, the Montana Central
tracklayers rounded Capital Hill and en
tered Last Chance gnlch, the working force
plying their tools ander the gaze of hun
dreds of Helena people, who lined both
sides 'of the road. The tie distributors
finished their labors an hoar before and
went into camp for the time being on the
eastern slope of Capital Hill, where the
large nnmber of teams were given their
midday feed. At noon operations were
suspended while the men took dinner bat
in a short time tie setters, rail layers and
spikere were again at work driving on
wards into the heart of the city. The
depot was reached this afternoon and work
on the necessary sidetracks was begun at
once. To-morrow will finish np this part
of it and by Monday everything will be in
readiness to receive the first through train
from St Paul.
The depot grounds to-day present a busy
scene. Contractor Palmer has the freight
depot which stands on the west side of the
track, under roof and receiving the shingles
as rapidly as a large force of men can lay
them. The passenger depot on the east
side is jnst being commenced. The long
platform for the debarkation of passengers
will be completed to-night. It is at the
end of this tha : the triomphal arch under
which Mr. Hill's party will pass will be
A large force of the company's graders
are making the dirt fly on the city ap
proaches to the depot and the city is work
ing some men and teams on the street this
side of the railroad ground. By Monday
Center street will be transformed into a
convenient thoroughfare to the new depot.
This will be the only mode of access to the
depot for tbe present, though in a short
time it is expected to have a highway
opened to Main street direct.
The L T . P. Folloxvs Suit.
To-day the news is received that the
Union Pacific has struck its colors to the
Manitoba freight rates and made the first
reduction in years in its stiff tariff. The
Herald foreshadowed this resnlt in a re
cent is8ne and the prediction is justified.
In fact the outcome was inevitable from
the moment tbe Manitoba proclaimed its
It is singular what evolution has
brought this about. For years the
Union Pacific has maintained
an unchanged tariff, and now the comple
tion of a road 600 miles north of it, but
none tbe less a competitor, compels a re
duction. The result is fraught with great
significance to all Union Pacific points.
Up to the present time shippers in Ogden,
Salt Lake, Pocatello, Helena and inter
mediate points on the U. P. system have
been compelled to pay tbe same rates, $3
per hundred for first class merchandise,
from Omaha. Now that the Manitoba
tariff to Helena is met by the
Union Pacific, this state of affairs
can no longer obtain. Under tbe inter
state law higher rates cannot be charged
for a shorter haul than a long one, and the
result is a sweeping redaction that at ^one
fell swoop brings down the charges all
along the line. The new rate to Helena is
$2.35 per hundred, first class, with other
classes in proportion, and, though by
stretching the law the same rates can be
charged to points farther east, the inter
state mandates will not allow a higher
tariff ; so that, as the U. P. has
redaced its rates to Helena in
conformity with existing tariffs
on the Manitoba and Northern Pacific, it
most mrkfc the same redaction to Ogden,
Salt Lake, Granger, Pocatello, Blackfoot,
Eagle Rock, Melrose, Dillon, Batte, Ana
conda, Deer Lodge and other points on its
system not further away from Omaha than
Helena. The present figures of the U. P.
freight tariff to thoee points are higher than
those over the Manitoba and Northern Pa
cific to Helena and, as the Helena rates are
to be met, down they most all come ac
cordingly. For all of which the country
from Salt Lake to Helena can thank |the
Manitoba railroad and the city of Helena.
Who would have thought that, at this early
day, Helena would prove the pivotal point
to swing and determine the rates to Salt
Lake and Ogden?
Potter's Prognostications.
Chicago special, 15th : Vice President
Potter of the Union Pacific was in the city
yesterday, en route to the east, where he
goes to consult with the president and di
rectors in relation to the affaire of the com
pany. Referring to financial matters, he
expressed himself as mach gratified with
the outlook. He was not disturbed by the
Manitoba's new tariffs. That line had not
reached Helena, Mont, yet, and would be
taken care of when it got there. The con
sequences to follow had been largely mag
nified. The prospects for the Union Pacific
were excellent, and if let alone it would
soon prove its capacity for growth and rev
The above was shown to General Mana
ger Shelby, of the Montana Central, this
morning, and he said that, in view of the
fact that the Union Pacific had just low
ered its rates on 'account of the reduction
made by the Manitoba, he thonght that
road would have plenty to do to look ont
for its own business interests in this sec
Responsibility Disclaimed.
So far as we are able to learn the local
officers of tbe Northern Pacific were in no
respect responsible for yesterday's inter
ference with tL j Montana Central's ad
vance into the city. Col. Sanders, attor
ney of the Northern Pacific, was freely
credited with suggesting the obstruction,
bat that affair is strongly disclaimed for
him, and to his representations, it is said,
are doe the orders from St. Paul to with
draw opposition and permit the rival track
to proceed to its depot terminal. Such, at
least, is the belief expressed by President
Broadwater, of the Montana Central.
A Fire.
Yesterday morning, abont 7 o'clock, the
large stable on the Snnnyside Ranch, own
ed by Chas. E. Colbert, four miles west of
Helena, was destroyed by fire. No one is
living on the ranch at present, and it is
surmised that the fire originated from
sparks from the Northern Pacific freight
double header" that goes up the grade
between six and seven. The stable was
some sixty rods from the track, bat a gale
was blowing at the time, and sparks coaid
ignite at that distance. Loss $1,500. In
sured for $400.
The Poughkeepsie Bridge.
The new bridge at Poughkeepsie, N. Y.,
the competion of the first part of which
was noted in the dispatches a few day ago,
is a remarkable piece of bridge bnilding.
The first trass was finished and swung
clear on the 7th inst. It is 525 feet long
between the centers of the towers, 82 feet
deep, and 35 feet widt, and is said to be
the largest and heaviest steel truss in the
world. It rests on steel towers 100 feet
high, which stand on masonry piers whose
foundations are 125 feet below high water,
and its total height from the fonndations
is 337 feet It carries a floor system on
top for a doable-track railway, and is capa
bles of supporting a rolling load of 3,000
pounds to the running foot on each track.

forty years, having contracted pulmonary and other
diseases in the Mexican War, but not till the 1st of
March, 1S7Î, 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
i>e totally disabled, either on one side of my body or
the other. The pain never left me a moment for
eleven year* and seven months—that Is from March I,
ls'75, when I was first attacked, to October 1, 1S86,
when I was cured. During these eleven years of In
tense suffering 1 tried innumerable prescriptions
from various physicians, and tried everything sug
gested bv friends, but if I ever received the least
benefit from any medicine taken Internally or ex
ternally, I am net 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 this 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 he
told me that his visit to the Hot Springs was In vain
—he found no relief. On his return from Hot Springs
he heard, for the first time, of the S. S. S. as a remedy
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
took four bottles, and by the first of Octooer I was
well—as far as the rheumatism was concerned. All
pain had disappeared, and I bave not felt a twinoe
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. I am very re
spectfully and truly your friend.
