Hamblin as foreman of their Book Bindery. He is a thoroughly com petent, expert workman, and for several years has had entire charge of the Butte Inter-Mountain Bindery. In the manufac ture of Blank Books of every description he has no superior. All kinds of Bindery work solicited, and satisfaction guaranteed. Send in your orders. Magazines bound on short notice. To The Public. Feeling called upon to make a reply to the Journal Pnb. Co.'s spiteful attack upon mv reputation and skill as a workman, I would state that I served an apprenticeship of five years with the leading Blank Book manufacturing house of Montreal, Can ada. and afterwards worked for them three years as their Principal Blank Book For warder. Since then I have worked for George E. Boos & Co., the Helena Herald, the Batte Inter Mountain, the Journal Pnb. Co., and have now accented the foremanship of the Herald Bindery. I have never left any of the firms herein named but with ex pressions of regret on their part, as shown by the fact that they have all been willing to re-engage me. Since my return to Helena, and while workiDg with the Jour nal Pub. Co.. I have ruled thirty blank books for Cascade county, books that were ordered by the Merchants National and First National banks of this city. If either of the banks herein named have any lault to find with the ruling of those books they can make it known to the public. In closing I would state that the Her ald has the best equipped bindery this side of St Paul, or as all other binders in the Territory have expressed it, "a gem of a bindery;" and that all work done in it will be done in first-class style, and satis faction guaranteed. Re.-pectlnlly, John* Hamblin. The ••Bottom" Man. A person in the morning paper, who does not sign his name, bat who nevertheless does not hide his identity, uses his little hatchet in a slash at the Herald and one of its employes, alleging that this estab lishment is not all that is advertised in its bindery department, and accusing ns of having enticed one ol the workmen, an old apprentice/' away from the Journal Company. In the main we do not care to notice the malice of the article or its false hoods. The writer, we conclude is the bottom man of the Journal concern from the signature he uses, though pretentions are not lacking that he thinks him self the head and heels as well. We are innocent of any act or word calculated to provoke *the as sinine exhibition the man makes of him self. Without good cause a mechanic should not slander another mechanic equal ly expert, with a reputation at his trade as well or better established, and whose skill as a workman is generally known. An ot jj er pending is that the Journal man gfcould expend its breath of detraction on a rival in business. It is base ingratitude to the Herald, because the Herald has treated the Journal outfit with uniform courtesy and consideration. Mr. Boos has every reason to feel obligated to t je Her ald for varions favors done and performed. We brought him to the country, paid his transportation and other expenses, employ ed him at his own price, paid him his wages, and finally eight years ago sold him at third hand the bindery plant he now has for £700 1 our terms being strictly cash in advance\ and thus he was launched in business on his own account- The Her ald bindery that succeeded the disposal of the old rubbish is the most complete and perfect in use. the machinery alone costing §3.500—equal to five times the value of the Journal plant furnished from this office. Mr. Hamblin, in charge of this department of the Herald r-tablisbment, is one .of the oldest, most experienced and accomplished workmen in Montana. He came to the Herald of his own choice and selection, without any solicitation or "enticing" whatever on the part of the proprietors. He probably bad good and sufficient reasons lor leaving the employ of the Journal. The reference to Mr. Hamblin as an "apprentice" is contemptible, and is not in keeping with Mr. Boos estimate Ot him when "inveigling "him from the employ ment of the Inter Mountain office. "Can ofier yon steady job $24 per week if yon come immediately, said the Journal man in his dispatch of November 11th last. That is a pretty high figure to pay an "ap prentice. " yet Mr. Boos paid the price and was glad to get Mr. Hamblin's services. Mr. Boos should lay no blame to the Hee Ai.D because of any relations he may have with workmen or partners. We do not desire to interfere with his affairs, and so far as we are concerned he may rnn his business as be likes. It is not onr practice to pnnctnre wind bags unless they become dangerously distended. Not During His 1 ime. Auditor Snllivan was seen by a Herald reporter to-day with reference to the state ments made yesterday concerning the con tour map of the city. He says he referred incidentally in the presence of 3 n Indepen deni reporter to the sewerage map that Mr. Brnnton drew while he was Mayor, and that is all he had to do with the publica tion of the item in yesterday morning's papier. The Independent seems to have confused the outline map with the contour map. As to the Big flame, which the Herald properly designated as "an elon gated cesspjool." Mr. Snllivan says that was built and paid for before he succeeded to the Mayoralty. 55*e knew Mr. Brnnton was the " constructing engineer " of that monument of municipal extravagance and snpp>osed that it was built when he was City Engineer and that was assuredly under Mr. Sullivan's regime. At all events the dame is the unhealthy child of a Democratic administration and neither in use. value nor general estimation does it reflect credi* apron its progenitors. It the truth were known we venture to say the noxions gases exhaled by that exprosed sewer daring last summer and tall had a great deal to do with the sickness and fe vers that have prevailed in Helena the prast season. One of the first steprs in the matter of new sewerage is to eradicate that Last Chance flame. 1 lie Devil Fish Described by Hugo I« no* s more tenacious mocster than malaria, whether it Pikes the form of chslla and fever, bilious remittent, ague cake or dumb ague.

She leaves four small children to mourn her loss. The funeral will take place to morrow at 3 p. m. Death of M. P. Lowry. Hon. Morrow P. Lowry died of pneu monia at 2 o'clock this morning at his room in the Cosmopolitan Hotel after a brief illness. Deceased was taken with a fever a few weeks ago. and alter partially recovering was attacked with pleurisy and finally with pneumonia. A not too vigor ous constitution and a system reduced by previous illm-s yielded readily to the lung disease, and this morning the sufferer passed away. He was attended by Mr. W. F. Chalienor during bis illness, and was also the object of much kindly con sideration on the part ot his triends. His sickness was not generally known, and therefore the news of bis death will be somewhat surprising. The remain- will be embalmed and conveyed east for inter ment. obedient to instructions from his relatives in Meadville. Pa. Deceased was a brother of the late T. J. Lowry, of Helena, and of the distinguished Pennsylvania family of that name and a nephew of Hon. Morrow B. Lowry, the prominent millionaire politician of that State. He was about 45 yeans of age and unmarried. Mr. Lowry came to Montana in 1 * 66 . crossing the plains with the expe dition ander Col. James L. Fisk. He afterwards located at Fort Benton, where he pursued the practice ot law, and was elected to the legislature from Chotean county. Subsequently he rejoined his relatives at his old home at CoDneantville, Pa., and remained there until his brother's death called him to Helena last May to assist in settling up the estate. He was a man of warm heart and brilliant qualifi cations. and had many friends in Montana who will receive the news of h:s death with profound regret. An Old Montaman Married. Mr. James McPherson. formerly of the grocery firm of Sparks >v McPherson, of Helena, is now in Montreal, Canada, and. as it appears from the following notice published in the Cornwall (Ont.) Standard of Dec. 29th nit, has taken to himself a wife. The name of the bride is not men tioned : "On Monday evening, the 28 th inst. an enjoyable event took place 3 t the residence of Mr. D. M. McPherson, the occasion be ing the welcome home of Mr. and Mrs James McPherson after their prolonged honeymoon trip. Over one hundred and fifty of the citizens of Lancaster and friends from the surrounding country were present to pay their respects to the newly married couple and to extend them a hearty greeting on the occasion. A sumptu ous repast was admirably served about midnight, at the conclusion ot which Mr. James Rayside, in a few appropriate words, proposed the health ot the newly married conple which was enthusiastically received. Mr. McPherson made a felicitous reply and appeared to be the very incarnation of hap piness, a circumstance easily understood by all those who had the pleasure of meet ing his charming bride. Dr. A. D. Cameron, who had assisted Mr. McPherson as "best man." made a few very happy remarks in response to the toast ot the ladies. •'Dancing was the chief feature of the programme and was kept np in a spirited wav till about three o'clock when the large assembly dispersed after having enjoyed a very pleasant evening. " A Good Point. Oae point which may interest our read ers was decbled yesterday by the Supreme Coart in the case ot the l_ nited States vs. George H. Goodwin. The opinion was de livered by Judge Bach, and it appeared that Goodwin occupied and fenced 190 acres of land within an nnsurveyed town ship. Most of this tract would fall upon an odd section within the grant to the Northern Pacific Railroad Company, if snrveved. The court held that the action coaid not be maintained concerning this land, inasmuch as the same was not a part of the public domain within the meaning of the act prohibiting unlawful enclosures thereof. It also appears that the remainder would fall upon an even section, when surveyed, and that Goodwin under the laws of the Territory had filed his declara tion for the purpose of notifying parties of the Dature of his claim to 160 acres ; and that he had been unable to acquire anv title from the government or corpora tion through the failure ot the United States to have it surveyed. The court held that Goodwin showed a claim of right, which had been made in good taitb. and that he coaid not be prosecuted under the law of Congress. The latter was en acted to prohibit persons, without any title, from fencing vast portions of the public lands. Judge McLeary rendered the judgment appealed from. A Novel State Line. ^ ^ody^politicl 3 ^ — A Montana stage company's advertise ment in the Great Falls Tribune reads : "For the convenience of the public through wh ch our line passes we have fixed the same rates to and from Fort Ben ton, I via. Great Falls, connecting with the St. P., M. «S: M. railroad ), as to and Irani Great Falls, for both passengers and ex press ." 1 Stage lines are generally considered pub lic concerns, but this is the first instance on record of one's passing through that A Winter Journey. Rev. R. E. Smith, presiding eider ot the Helena District, has just returned from a trip to Idaho, and will occupy the pulpit of the Broadway M. E. chnrch next Sab bath.

Mach incon venience and delay in running trainsare ex perienced, and yet Mr. Smith was able to keep every appointment, and returned -afely to his home at the expected time. Hamberg in San Francisco. A telegram from City Marshal Read says he has arrived at San Francisco with Simon Hamberg and had turned the latter over to the p»lice authorities.

January 20. —[Special to the Herald. |—The Elkhorn Mining Co.'s office burned to the ground this morning at 9 o'clock. The fire was discovered while Mr. Yawter, the Superintendent and the Clerk were at breakfast, and it had already made such headway that only a very few articles could be taken from the building. The company's books were saved, bat that is about all. The disaster is particularly un fortunate at this time on account of the difiicuty of procuring bnildiDg material with which to erect a new one. Death of an Officer. Fort Shaw, January 20.— J Special to the Herald ]— Lient. Thie«. ot the Third Infantry, died at his quarters here this af ternoon of erysipelas, after a briet illness. He was one of the most popular officers in the service and wa- a favorite with civilians as well as the military. The Weather. To-day higher temperatures are reported from all parts of Montana. In Helena the coldest last night was only about 10 below, and during the day the mercury has lingered about zt^o. This tempera ture, with bright sut-bine and no wind, makes pleasant winter weather. Following is the Herald's special weather bulletin for to-day, showing the temperatures at nearly all prominent Mem* tana points reached by the 55 estera U nion telegraph : 11 A. M. WEATHER REPORT. Heron—* above ; snowiDg hard and drifting. Missoula—20 above; snowing, calm. Butte—10 above ; clear, sonny. Bozeman—12 above ; cloudy, calm. Billings—10 above ; clear, calm.

Our special from Fort Shaw announces the death of First Lieutenant Frederick Thies, of the Third Infantry, who fell a victim to erysipelas yesterday. Lieutenant Thies was bora in Germany and came to this country early in lue. He enlisted in the United States army as a private -oldier and rose irom the ranks. He served some years in the infaDtiy but was discharged from that service and entered the 7th Cav alry, Caster's gallant regiment, serving there until October, 1*73, when he was ap pointed second lienteifent in the Third In fantry. In 1*84 he was commissioned First Lieutenant in the same regiment and was appointed regimental quartermaster in 1 ** 50 , which position he held at the timeo! his death. In bis demise the service lo>es a brave soldier and his comrades and friends will ruonra the death ot a true and gallant officer. He was well known in Montana and a large circle of lriends wii' hear ol his death with sincere regreri ils leaves a wife and two children. 5Ve inderstand his remains will be interred at Fort Ben ton.. How '1 hey Measured the Cold. It will be remembered that daring the severe weather the astonishing tempera ture of 62 degrees below zero was reported from Stevensville. How that degree ol cold was measured will be seen Irom the following item, published in the Missoula Times : "At Stevensville the mercury went down below 4*. the last figures on the thermome ter, and George Back, by taking a two-foot rule and measuring between the iast figures and the merenry. calculated that it was 62. If that really was a mercurial thermom eter. as the above would indicate, we are at a loss to imagine how it could register so low, as mercury freezes at —39 degrees. More probably the instrument in question was a spirit thermometer that was gradu ated only to —43 degrees. Snch being the case, a careful measurement below the lowest notch, on Mr. Buck s plan, might cot be far away from the correct record. Cold and Cold. [New North-West.] ''Fifty-six below!" Just think ol it. The lowest average ot the mc-t northern observation ever recorded was taken on H. M. S. "Alert, " at Floeberg Beach, lat. 82 degs, 27 min. N., for the three win ter months and averaged 36 degs. below zero. The lowest temperature was record ed by the Alert—73 degs . and by the Dis covery. at Lady Franklin Bïy —<0 degs. The Ÿega. off the northern coast of Siberia, in lat. 67 degs. 1 min. N., made its lowest record—51. with an average for the winter months of 10 degs. below, so oar weather was colder even than the coldest recorded in winter quarters by the only -hip that ever made the Northwest passage, and bat 17 or 18 degs. higher than the coldest ever recorded by human beings. In Franz Joseph Land the record is 43 degs. below, so we have really endured, and the little ones, only knee high to their A B C s. have toddled off to school and returned un harmed in colder weather than was ever recorded at many pxfinis within the Arctic c'rcle. And half this time 55*. B Miller has been going around in his shirt sleeves. To be sure, the Arctic observations were at sea level, while we are 4,546 feet neerer the snn. An old edition of the Encyclopedia Americana states that Dr. Kane, on the Grinnell expedition of 1*50, recorded 99 below zero, bnt it is not repeated in later editions of the same work, and as scien tific authorities give 91 3 below as the lowest extreme of natural cold it would seem that Dr. Kane's record was erroneous. Tne figures we have given are from the Encyclopedia Brittan ica of 1**7 and Rod well's Dictionary of Science. The Gloster Will Kesnme. Mr. H. W. Child, general manager of the Gloeter mine, received at 3 p. in. to-day, from the president of the company in New York, a telegram authorizing him to start np the mine and works at once and to con tinue active operations. Mr. T. L. West, the mine foreman, will go to Gloeter on Monday next and pat a large force at work, and the residents of the Stemple district will once more hear the Gloeter whi-tles and we hope for a long time to come.
