GLORIOUSLY SCOOPED. How the Herald Outwitted its Contemporary on the Miners' Convention. The ad interim editor of the Independent boila over thia morning and makes an asinine apectacle of himself in hi8 indigna tion over being "scooped by the Herald's " boy reporter" in securing for publication • the resolutions passed by the convention yesterday. The way it came about was this' In the afternoon the Herald reporter sought the secretary of the convention and obtained from him a promise of the reso lutions as soon as they were read and adopted. To further sanction the proceed ing the secretary asked the permission of the chairman of the committee on resolu tions to give the report to the Herald. This was granted, and as soon as the reso lutions were adopted the secretary handed them over to the Herald reporter. No conditions of any sort were imposed. The resolutions were given to the Herald man for publication, and neither the secre tary nor the chairman of the committee on resolutions said anything about turning them over to the Independent. The Inde pendent's editor, who was in the hall at the time, asked the Herald reporter if he (the former) coaid get the resolutions after the Herald was through with them. The Herald man replied that he conld; that he would leave them in the counting room after the Herald had printed them. The hoar was so late (it was nearly four o'clock before our re porter reached the office with the resolu tions( that it was found impossible to print the whole report. 80 the bare resolutions were printed last evening, the preamble and supplemental report being laid over until to-day. True to its promise to have the resolutions in the coanting room aAer they were printed, the Herald carefully preserved that part of the copy need last evening and had it in the office when the editor of the Independent called for it. It was cheerfully surrendered to him. But that did not soit him. He wanted the preamble and balance of the report, which the Herald was unavoidably compelled toJ reserve < for to-day, grew wrath y be cause we wonld not give it to him and cre ated a scene in the Herald connting room. He loet his temper, nor could all the polite ness of the Herald staff' help him to re gain it. He talked wildly, enunciated vocif erously, grew positively incoherent and sawed the air with his arms in a manner that pnt to shame his most nerv ons and idiotic attempts at speech-making in the legislature. Be fumed and fretted, coaxed and pleaded, demanded and insist ed—but he left the Herald office without the preamble. He then repaired to the Secretary and committee and with them in tow followed the Herald people around town to force them to turn over that pre ample, but without avail. Finally, after hours of a weary and fruitless chase, he gave up the attempt with bad grace and procured from the stenographer a report of the resolutions, which, imperfect and incorrect, he printed in his convention . proceedings this morning. The Herald to-day pre sents a reliable report of all the proceedings, and if the Independent still wants the copy of the resolutions it can procure it at the connting room alter the paper is ont We will stick to onr promise and have it there. The Independent has been badly "scoop ed," in newspaper parlance, and its editor had not sense enough to keep quiet about it. The tactics pursued by the Herald yesterday were just what any enterprising newspaper would adopt. The Independent "got left" and its strawberry blonde, mug wump editor with his years of experience as a legislator and journalist was nicely ontwitted by onr "boy reporter." Obituary. James Armour, father-in-law of Hon. John Stedman, died of pneumonia yester day morning at the latter's residence after a brief illness. Deceased was 82 years of age and a beloved and respected old gen tleman. He was c ue of the pioneers of Montana and had resided in Helena for many years. He was a good citizen and upright man and leaves a host of friends to mourn his death. ,His remains were in terred in the Helena cemetery this morn ing, the largely attended funeral taking place from the family residence on Dear born avenne. The funeral of W. C. Swett, whose re mains were brought from St. Paul on Tues day, occurred this afternoon from the Epis copal church. A large number of citizens paid their last tribute of respect to the de parted by following the remains to the grave. WE GET THERE. The "organ'a" grinder's old and "orter" Know that old, old "scooping" game. The Herald lias a "boy reporter," But "it got there all the same." Two Ways. Choose Which ! There are two usual ways of doing what Na* tu re sometimes does incompletely, namely, to relieve the bowels. One is to swallow a drastic purgative which evacuates profusely, abruptly and with pain, the other is to take Hoetetter's Stomach Bitters, the effect of which is not vio lent, but sufficiently thorough, and which does not gripe the intestines. If the first is selected, the person employing it need not expect perma nent benefit, and he cannot hope to escape the debilitating reaction which leave* the organs as bed or worse off than before. If, on the other hand, he resorts to the Bitters, he can rely upon the restoration of a regular habit of body, conse quent upon a renewal of a healthful tone In the Intestinal canal. Besides healthfully relaxing the bowels, the Bitters arouses a donnant liver, imparts a beneficial impetus to the action of the kidneys, and counteracts the early twinges of rhematism. a tendency to gout, and mslaria In all its forms. febl3-15-17wl6 Fron the Dally Herald of February 1 . No Prosecution. The following is given to the Herald as a recital of facts in the matter of the Campbell Graham contest land case in the vicinity of Great Falls. One Cameron was arrested on the complaint of Commis sioner Luke, of Benton, on the charge of perjury about six weeks ago.

Postoffice Service. At the session last evening the city council by nnanimous vote adopted the following resolutions : Resolved, That it is the sense of this council, representing the corporation of the city of Helena, that the postal service that is now provided for the citizens of said city is grossly and manifestly inadequate ; that the distribution and delivery of mails is delayed for hours for the want of ade quate clerical service, and our people are subjected to an inconvenience that visits an UDjust hardship upon a community that contributes largely to the postal reve nues of the government. Resolved, That the city clerk be instruct ed to send a copy of these resolutions to the Postmaster General. Incorporation.

Dr. Anna Longshore Potts is a name known to every Philadelphian. She prac ticed her profession in the Quaker City for a quarter of a century. She graduated at the Woman's Medical College there at the commencement of the fifties. Ten years or so ago she retired from active practice to go into the lecture field. She had formed the belief, founded on years of prac tice, that people get sick for want of physi ological knowledge. Her first talks were delivered in the drawing rooms of her mansion, on Arch street, to women only. Soon a public request, signed by the lead ing ladies of Philadelphia, was drawn np requesting her to lectnre in one of the prominent halls. This was acceded to. These lectures were so favorably received that the gentlemen became interested and she finally delivered a series of lectures to both men and women. At the first of these the Mayor of the city and several of the prominent physicians presided. Her fame spread and she visited all the large cities throughout the north and as far west as San Francisco, where she ap peared in the spring of 1882. She then sailed for New Zealand and spent two years in that country and Australia, when she sailed for London. Her lectnres in the antipodes were presided over by the United States consuls and the titled functionaries detailed by England as governors of her varions colonies. She commenced her lectures in London at Great St. James Hall—the largest and most aristocratic anditorium in the Eng lish metropolis, where she was introduced by the Hon. James Hassell Lowell, U. P. minister, and Gen. E. A. Merritt, then U. S. Consul General. Daring her four years' stay in England she gained great renown, being invited to lecture in Dr. Porter's chnrch—the City Temple—and lectnring under the auspices of the medical society and for the benefit of the Woman's Hospital in Soho Square. Last October she returned to America, making her first appearance at Tremont Temple, in Boston. She then lectured at Chickering Hall, New York City, since which time she has appeared in Utica, Syracuse, Detroit, Mich., St. Paul and Minneapolis. Few women have gained so great distinction as she has or accomplished so much good. The press all over the world is unanimous in her praise. She is now on her way to Califor nia, where she has a most beautiful home. Geo. E. Harrison, who is connected with the New York press and now in Helena gathering material for a series of articles on the resources of the Northwest, has per suaded this lady to deliver a few lectnres here. Encore Hall has been engaged. She will deliver her first lecture next Thursday evening. Dr. Longshore is also an author Her "Discourses to Women" is in its twenty-sixth thousand in England and in its tenth thousand in this country. THE INCURABLE CURED ! Hopkinsville, Kt„ Fpb. 24. 1887.

Gentlemen—For twenty years I have had a *ore on my left cheek. It had gradually been growing worse. The many physicians whom I had consulted were unable to do me any good. Last fall a year ago I began u.-ing S. S. S. At first it inflamed the sore, and it became more virulent than ever: so much so, indeed, that my family insisted that I should leave off the medicine. I per sisted in using the S. S. S. At the end of two months the sore was entirely healed. Think ing that the evil was out of my constitution, I left off the medieiue; but in November, ten months after, a very slight breaking out appeared. I at once began again on S. S.

Strange Words from the Dead Hartt—An Essay on Ashes—His Letter to the Governor. It will be remembered that on the day be fore his execution, last Thursday, John Hartt sent for a Herald reporter and gave him a communication, requesting that it be published after he was dead and gone. Eliminating much that is unintelligible and straightening out the balance the mys terious document reads about as follows. It is written in pencil on letter paper bearing the heading of the sheriff's office and is in Harris own penmanship : Man's care for disease cannot be found in the trees of the earth before the tree is burned, but the cure for all diseases can he found in the ashes of the fir or hemlock. Fire burns the poison out of every tree. There are only two vital oils in this world and man has to go to the trees to find them. These oils cannot exist together and, as they do live together in the body, that is why disease comes. These oils can be seen in a cake of soap, one being ashes or lye (vegetable) while the other is lard (animal) or the grease taken from swine. In order to have the right oii for yonr body and heart you must seek for a new foundation, and to do this you must go through repentance and get at the other side of the tree. I see with my grave there is no head stone to tell how I suffered and died lor others, and for her who cried in her youth; I was urged to mnrder to save her. To find the secret substance which the world has lost you must make a division in the tree and what is left from it you must light on and try to raise back to purity, as you are now advancing impure. Silver and gold is your wrong god and you can't serve two masters. For your coin is dead and cannot grow fruit. You should take example from the trees and kDow that there is a pure and true founda tion to please my father in heaven. It is not to man I look for forgiveness. I long ago after this crime started through repentance, and as I went in this road, this world, now in no better condi tion, left my mind and I was as well as he who now rests in my father's kingdom. To get at these ashes of repentance you must burn down the trees. Give up silver and gold, or in time your children will become too weak to put silver or gold on the counter ; and as you purify the earth, so shall future generations become pure. Johxy Hartt. As another sample of Hartt's queer compo sition and an evidence of his feelings on his approaching execution the following letter, which he sent to the Governor on the first inst., will serve : feb 1 st 1888 Helena Montana to vour Excellency P H Leslie' governor of - Mont My dear Sir I understand Some good ladies in the city of helena are getting up a petitition and to have it presented to you in order to have My Sentence com muted to life from the death Sentence I am now ander Should Such petition come before yon permit me dear Sir in asking you to give it no consideration if the cause that led to this crime was laid before you' then I wonld agree in haveing yon consider My fall in life the cause that lead to pitta crime as yet lays in secret darkeDneas and the public as theay dont no it hold nntruthfnll doubts untrue against Me. as I am Made in Natnre I was also con trolled by the word in Natnre & at this date I find that man is something more deveine in the ffesh then antrnth and dis grace for the respect of banian iife is wbu my own has to Suffer for it was black maileing that has put me here & no one knows it trnthfully only My Self & three others dear Sir My Spirit pleads for liberty or death & don't consider it otherwise. Patrick John Hartt. Helena Jail Mont Hartt's commnnication given to the Herald seems intended as an allegory upon sin and repentance, the former being compared to one sort of oil or ashes and the latter to a better quality of the same substances, illustrating the conflict between the better and worse natures of man. It is a crude attempt, but shows the direction the man's thoughts took during his long confinement in jail. We publish it as an interesting attempt of an unlettered man with a naturally bright but uncultivated mind to leap the bounds of ignorante and treat of subject familiar to his thonghts but beyond the scope of his powers of ex pression. At first sight his writing ap pears the sheerest nonsense, but on care ful analysis there becomes perceptible a clear attempt to draw a comparison between abstract notions of virtue and vice and concrete substances. Hartt was a shrewd fellow, but possessed only the merest rudiments of education and these two facts were always made prominent in his conversation and writings. That he really had repented of his crime and be come resigned to snffer death as a punish ment seems beyond donbt. He always spoke regretfully of his offense and betray ed no shadow of fear at his approaching execution. He faced death as bravely as be talked and gave way to no weakness on the gallows. Correction. In the harry of writing a description of Hartt's execution yesterday a few errors crept in through the haste with which the account was prepared. The principal of these was that the death warrant was read to Hartt at 10 o'clock. It was exactly 11:04 a. m. when Sheriff Hathaway entered Hartt 's cell and read the death warrant to him. only twenty minntes before he stood on the gallows. Another error was the statement that Fohrman, who was execu ted in 1883, was hanged for the murder of his father-in-law, Jacob Kenck. Kenck was Fohrman 's son-in-law, not his father in-law. It was also made to appear that Father Van den Brock had administered communion to Hartt after the latter had breakfasted, whereas the sacrament is al ways received before the morning meal. Sanders' Retort. Onr reporter showed Colonel Sanders the article in the Batte Inter-Mountain saying that, as he stepped out of the mining con vention on Wednesday daring Mr. Word's delivery of his speech, Mr. Word said : "'The wicked flee when no man pursueth,' and this is just as true now, gentlemen, as when Solomon first eaid it." Col. Sanders read the article attentively. "I admire Solo mon," he replied, "and he Bhould be quoted correctly. Only a few can improve his proverbe. I tan glad to know Mr. Word said something—after I came ont. I listened to him a long time, thinking per haps he might say something. Mr. Word's opinions 00 the subject of which Solomon treated in that proverb are entitled to great respect. He speaks as an expert. He was at Camas Creek and knows how it is him self." Contracts Awarded. A. F. McKay & Co. have secured the con tract for building four station booses and two section house« on the Montana Central road, between Helena and Great Falls. They will go to work at once. At the Marysville Jonction the freight and passen ger boose, will be combined. TOWN AND TERRITORY. —The complete text of the proceedings of the mining land convention appeared in the Herald only. Apply at the Herald counting room for extra copies. —The Odd Fellows of Butte are to have a building of their own. and for that pur pose have purchased a suitable site of Koss Deegau for the sum of $12.000. —A word abext blank books. If you want anything in this line you will save money by getting figures at the Hkrai.d bindery. Do not forget this fact. Satis faction guaranteed. —Rev. E. J. Stanley came in from Great Falls last night on the delayed train of the Montana Central and goes to Bonlder to morrow where he will hold the quarterly meeting services of the M. E. chnrch south on the Sunday following. —The Montana Central this morning received advices of a still further cut in rates between St. Paul and Chicago by the Chicago, St Panl & Kansas City railway, taking effect yesterday, as follows : First class 25c.; second-class 20c.; third-class 15c.; fourth-class 12c.; fifth-class 10c.; sixth class 8 a—official classification. —Delegates of the Silver Bow delega gation, attending the late convention, call attention to the omission of the name of Henry Williams, of Butte, from the re ported list of gentlemen forming the finance committee. The Herald correct! the mistake, and is advised that in the re vised official proceedings to be printed in pamphlet form, Mr. Williams' name will appear duly recorded. —The sale of the Pony mining property to Gov. Hauser's senatorial syndicate, npon which the pnposed extension of the Boulder & Madison railroad was made contingent, has not yet been confirmed, and rumors are afioat that it has fallen through.

Inter Mountain: The county physician yesterday discovered another man who is afflicted with the smallpox. He is an in dividual who goes by the name of Shorty With the Dog. He was a sort of partner of McAdams, who was found at Gray's lodging house Wednesday and sent to the pest house. Shorty With the Dog was also fonnd at Gray's. His case is not a very severe one, but he was sent to the pest house. He got his name by leading Gordon & Ritchie's bulldog around, and as it was the first labor he was ever known to perform, its memory was thns perpetuated. He is now known by only this name and his true name has been forgotten. His case makes eleven altogether devel oped here, which is pretty nearly a dozen too many for the absolute comfort of peo ple who have not been vaccinated. Montana Central Bulletin.

A WORD TO THE W'SE i.7) Oh, you vain editor from Missoula ! Do you think that nobody can fool you ? You sought the convention With best of intention. But "the boy" showed you that he could school you. Hereafter in seeking an item Do not rest all content when you sight 'em, But grapple it strong And hold on good and long.

Your opponent will cage the cana. y, Which is why we suggest to our colem.
