One Hundred and Sixty Acres Ground Near Helena Change Hands for $ I 7,000. of Negotiations are pending to-day and will probably be consummated before the Herald is issued, looking to the sale of Charles Lehman's upper ranch in the Prickly Pear valley. The property com prises about 160 acres of fine bottom land a few miles north of the city, near the Thomas ranch and adjoining ther Poor Farm premises. Mr. Lehman transfers the proper direct to the purchasers, who are Messrs. S. T. Hauser, E. W. Knight, T. C. Power, James Sullivan, W. N. Baldwin and Mr. Ryan—the last named getleman being a nephew of Mr. Power. The con sideration was $17,000 or about $100 per acre. The first payment was made yester day and the transaction will be perfected this afternoon. This is one of the first big sales of the season and opens up the spring boom pretty well. Another purchase in process of negotia tion which will be effected in a day or two is that of 80 acres on the East Side near the foothills, about 3 miles from the city. The buyer is Oscar Bradford and the con sidération $4,000, or 50 per acre. The sale was made through the agency of Porter & Math. _ For the Information of Grand Army Comrades. By command of Department Commander Waters, G. A. R, the following circular (No. 4) has been issued by Assistant Ad jutant General Culver, dated Billings, Mont., February 27th : Members and comrades attending the department encampment to be held at Miles City on March 21st, 1888, will, when purchasing tickets from Missonla, Garrison, Helena, Bonlder, Bozeman, Livingston, Billings, Caster and Glendive, request from agents of those stations receipts for same. These receipts will be countersigned by the Assistant Adjutant General at Miles City, and will entitle the holder to return ticket at one-fifth regular fare. Badges have been procured for all mem bers of the encampment, and will be de livered free npon application at depart ment headquarters on the evening of March 2 0th. Parlin-Slocum. A Madison, Wis., dispatch to the Minne apolis Tribune, dated the 25th iust., says : "An interesting event occurred in the ladies' hall at the State University this evening when Frank E. Parlin, of St. Panl, was wedded to Miss Frances E. Slocum, a student in music from Helena, Mont." The marriage of this well known young couple will call forth universal congratu lations among a large circle of friends of the contracting parties. Mr. Parlin was for a tew years an operator in the Western Union telegraph office at Helena, and left here for St. Paul a few months ago. His bride, Miss Fannie Slocum, is the youDgest daughter of the late John H. Slocum and a highly accomplished and estimable young lady. It is supposed the happy pair will make their home at St. Paul. Kane Brought Back. Officer Marshall, who went out to Ellis ton after the man Kane, who is wanted as prosecuting witness in the case of the Territory vs. J. W. Noel, returned yester day afternoon accompanied by the gentle man whom he went in search of and who will be held by the officers to testify in court to-morrow. Mr. Kane says he was in ignorance of the fact that he was wanted to appear in court. He came to Helena to get the money of which he was robbed and, having accomplished that object, set ont for home. When told that his presence was needed he willingly accompanied the officer back to the city. The Noel case is set for hearing before Judge O'Donnell for to-morrow afternoon at 2 o'clock. Our New Justice. The Herald's conjecture that Jndge Liddell, the newly appointed carpet-bag Justice for the Montana Supreme Court, was a scion of the "Fighting Liddells" of Louisiana is confirmed by farther particu lars cf the appointment. Judge Liddell is the son of General Liddell, of Louisiana, who figured so prominently in the fend with the Jones family, the history of which has often been written up in metro politan journals and furnished Mark Twain with the material for his feudal chapters in "Huckleberry Fin." The ap pointment of Liddell will have a tendency to boom "Royalty on the Mississippi" in Montana._____ A Little Subsequent. Miles City Journal: Late last night it was learned that a petition was being cir culated in oar city asking the appointment by the administration of James H. Garlock to the vacancy caused on our supreme bench by the recent and sadden resigna tion of Jndge McLeary. Bozeman Chronicle: A petition signed by all bat two of our attorneys was for warded to Washington on Saturday last requesting that Hon. F. K. Armstrong be appointed Judge to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Jndge McLeary. Helena Excursion Rates. Pursuant to the announcement made last week the Manitoba and Montana Cen tral railways have made a greatly reduced rate to Helena, and will soon place on sale round trip tickets from St. Paul to Helena and return for $56. Tickets will be limit ed to ninety days, will be good for twenty days going and ten days returning, includ ing stop-over privileges between the points named. Children Cry for Pitcher's Castoria."

Fatal Accident in a Butte Mine, Bi tte, March 2.—[Special to the Her- ald].—A fatal accident occurred in the Goldsmith mine at Walkerville this morn- ing, resulting in the instant death of three miners. The cable broke and let the bucket tall forty feet down the shaft, kill- cng James Riggen, Walter Lawrence and --Fritz. Riggen and Lawrence were both married. The former leaves a wife and one chiid and the latter a wife to mourn his loss. ANOTHER ACCOUNT. Butte, March 2.—[Special to the Her ald.]—A terrible accident happened at the Goldsmith mine, north of Waikerville, to day. The shaft is 225 feet deep. Three miners, named Walter Lawrence, Fritz Dell and James Reegan, were in the backet, and when they were within fifty feet of the bottom the WIRE ROPE BROKE. Lawrence and Dell were killed outright and Reegan lived until brought to the surface, expiring in a few hours. Law rence leaves a wife and child, and Reegan a wife. All the victims live in Walker ville. The coroner's jury has exonerated the company. WINTER WORMS. A Disgusting Mass of Filth Disclosed in an East Side Water Pipe. The water at the Assay Office, which is supplied by the East Side company's pipes, refused to run yesterday and investiga tions were at once instituted to find out what was the trouble. The pipe was opened and fonnd to he completely clogged with a mass of worms, rotten wood, bags, creepers, weeds and dirt, all in a partial state of decomposition, and smelling so foul that the room had to he fumigated before the workmen con Id proceed with their unenviable task of cleaning the pipes. Finally the mass of filth was re moved and damped into the sink, where it formed a pile of rottenness fully a foot in diameter and three inches high. And all this came out of a two inch pipe. It had accumulated there daring the winter, and all the water used in the assay office had first to percolate this nasty mess before it conld he drawn from the faucet. Every one of the assay office boys now makes a wry face when he thinks of the water he has been drinking for the last six months. Finally the accumulation became so great that it sbnt off the water completely, and led to the above disclosure. The worms, bugs, etc., have been put into bottles (and they nearly filled two quart bottles) and will be sent to the Board of Health as a sample of what East Side water is flavored with. After the Board gets through with them they will be donated to the Montana Historical Society as a nucleus for an entomological museum. So it seems the worms flourish in winter as in summer, and that even when the mer cury is below zero the people of Helena are drinking the distilled essence of worms, bugs and other insects. Well, the Woolston water is promised by the first of April, and we mast be content to live on worm diet für a month longer. THE WATER WORKS. Pumps on the Road and Water to be Turned on the First of April. The pumps for the Woolston water works were, after a practical test at Boston, shipped for Helena on the 22d of Febru ary and are expected to arrive ahont the 15th of the present month. It will take a week or ten days to set them up and then the work of pumping will begin. Unless something unforeseen happens the new water works will be opened and water tnrned into the mains by the first of April. The reservoir will not be completed for two months, bat that will cat no figure in the turning on of the water, as it can be pumped directly into the mains nntil the reservoir is finished. Evans- Bielen berg. Yesterday's Inter Mountain says: At the Christian chnrch in Deer Lodge, at 8 o'clock last evening, Rev. Dnnlap per formed the ceremony of uniting in the holy bonds of matrimony Mr. Warren Evans and the peerless belle of the valley village, Miss Clara Bielenberg. At an early honr the handsomely decorated church was crowded to its utmost capacity with the many friends of the contracting parties. The bride looked bewitchingly lovely in an elegant toilet of white satin, en train, and wore diamond ornaments. Mr. Evans is a nephew of Mr. Hugh Kir kendall, of Helena, and has charge of the business interests of that gentleman at Philipsbnrg. He has has proven himself a man of mnch business ability, and has bright prospects. The bride is a daughter of Mr. C. P. H. Bielenberg, and is as re fined and accomplished as she is beautifnl. N. P. Railroad Suit. Batte Miner : An action was commenced yesterday in the United States District Court by the Northern Pacific against C. R. Greeley, A. N. Coleman and Eva H. Murray. Greeley is a justice of the peace in Missonla county. Coleman brought soit in Greeley's court against the North ern Pacific for $65 and won. The com pany wanted to appeal to the district court, but the justice refused to accept the appeal bond because the.affidavit of sure ties was made before a notary public in stead of the clerk of the district court He also refused to turn over the transcript and issne an execution against the com pany for $65 and costs. The company has been granted an order restraining Greeley from issuing fnrthnr execution on the judgment; also compelling him to accept the undertaking, and enjoining the plain tiff from farther action in the matter. No Relation. It is said that our theatrical manager, John Maguire, who is now in San Fran cisco, has telegraphed a friend in Helena that he is no relation of the late John Maguire, of New York, who died of an alliterative complication of anti-poverty and apoplexy, and whose bones have been denied sepulture in the Calvary cemetery. The live John, like many of his friends, has some anti-poverty ideas of his own, and is nulling for attractions near the Golden Gate to carry them ont. He has no tendency to apoplexy, however, and owns no lot in Calvary cemetery. Rhyme of the "Soo." I Minneapolis Tribune.)

LAST NIGHT'S FIRE. Judge Adkinson's Residence Dam aged—The Small Loss is No Fault of the Contractors. Judge Adkinson, who ha: bnt recently taken possession of the magnificent new residence he put up on East Fifth avenue last season, came near losing his fine home last night. In the evening the Judge and Mrs. Adkinson were entertaining a party of friends at dinner. The meal was some what prolonged, and it was about 8 o'clock when the party arose from the table and went up stairs to the parlor. Ou entering this room they fonnd the air tilled with smoke and discovered qnite a volume of smoke issuing from the carpet in front of the fire place. The host and male gnests at once began to tear np the carpet, bat the smoke was found to be coming up through the floor. Hatchets were brought into requisition and the floor was opened in several places without finding the fire. Meantime the house filled with smoke, so that it became almost suffocating. Then the gentlemen present, finding that the fire was gaining, turned in an alarm, and the fire department quickly responded to the call. Chief Booker was soon on the scene, and, having located the blaze, began tear ing away the fire-place with a crowbar. This exposed the burning floor and the flames were soon extinguished with a few backets of water. The fire was oat, but much damage ensued from the water and the bricks and mortar torn from the fire place. However, the damage, which will probably reach $150 or $200, is fully covered by insurance. The cause of the fire was a careless piece of work on the part of the builders of the house. The fire-place, instead of resting on a brick or stone foundation, was built right on the floor and only a bed of cement an inch thick, covered with a thin tiling, separated the fire box from the boards of the floor. There had been a fire in the fire-place all day and no donbt the heat cracked the mortar and set fire to the boards beneath. After the blaze was ex tinguished it was found that several holes had been burned in the floor, and that one of the joists, a six inch timber, had been burned half .way through. The prompt discovery of the blaze was all that saved the house. Had it broken out in the night, the chances are the dwelling would have been destroyed. This fire brings to light a gross piece of carelessness on the part of the contractors, and if other houses have been built in the same style we may look for repetitions of last night's occurrence. If contractors or builders will, 'for the sake of economy, put such fire traps in houses, some means should be devised to make them suffer for the consequences. Defective flues have been regarded as a great danger in west ern houses, but fire-places built in this way are far more to be feared. Mrs. Adkinson says she remonstrated with the contractor when she saw the way he was building the fire-place; but he assured her that it w.os perfectly sate, and that "lots of other houses" were built in the same way. If they are, their owners should take warning by last night's occur rence. _ * _ Death of D. M. Goodwin. Mr. David M. Goodwin died this morn ing at 6 o'clock at his home in the Prickly Pear valley, a few miles from Helena. Deceased had been an invalid for some time and had been afflicted with soften îajç of the brain for over a year poet. Ho~ cently his il less took a more aggravated form and it became evident that he mast soon pass away. His family nursed him tenderly and he had the best of medical advice, bat all to no purpose. His death is the cause of profonnd grief to the be reaved family and a source of sincere re gret to a large number of Montana's citi zens. D. M. Goodwin was born in Indiana in 1834. He lived while a yonng man in that State and also in Iowa, Kansas and Missouri, devoting his time to farming and hotel keeping. He came up the river to Montana in 1870 and went to farming near Helena. He has since lived on his ranch in the valley with his family, which con sists of a wife and two young lady daugh ters. His wife, to whom he was married in .1864, was a Miss Mollie Hill, of St. Joseph, Mo., and a daughter of the late Mrs. Wm. Ewing, of the valley. Mr Goodwin's estate consists principally of a valuable farm of 300 acres north of Helena. The funeral will he held on Monday from the Episcopal church. Distinguished Arrival. Hon. W. R KeDyon, the mayor of our sitter municipality of Butte, came to Helena on the train this noon—his first visit to this city. Mr. Kenyon was polite enough to say that, while he had always discounted the exuberant enthusiasm of Mr' Reed, of the Inter Mountain, so frequently manifested in our behalf, he was hardly prepared for the size of the town or the cordiality of his greeting. Mr. Kenyon is a stuidy officer, upon whom the people of Batte rely with great confidence to see that there are few municipal aberrations and they do not count without their host. We trust Mr. Kenyon's stay here will be made pleasant and that he will find time to repeat his visit. ' Courts for March. Though no court will be held at Helena this month there are several terms pending in other counties. On Next Monday, district court opens at Boulder, Jefferson county, under Judge McConnell, at Glendive, Dawson county, nnder Judge Bach, and at Miles City, Caster county, under Judge DeWolfe. Court also opens at Dillon, Beaverhead county, March 19tb; at Missoula March 12th; and at Fort Benton, Choteau county, March 19th. Altogether the month will be a busy one for both j udges and lawyers. Helena attorneys are already leaving the city for Boalder, Miles City, and Glendive. Bound Over. J. W. Noel, the Butler telegraph opera tor, had a hearing yesterday before Justice O'Donnell on the charge of robbing Mr. Kane of $250, while they were traveling in company on the Batte train last week. The evidence addneed was sufficient to justify His Honor in holding the prisoner, and Mr. Noel was accordingly bonnd over in the sum of $500 to appear before the grand jnry. He was released this morning on famishing bond in the above amount with Henry Klein and Moses Morris as sureties. ___ Why He Did It. Bozeman Chronicle : We have it straight that Jndge McLeary made out an order designating Bozeman as the seat of the U. S. Court, and that the order was returned with the name of Miles City substituted in the hand-writing of Judge DeWolfe. We also learn that DeWolfe, who is a single man, was impelled to select Milee by reason of the splendid hotel facilities offered there, in comparison to those of Bozeman. Under these circumstances we congratulate Miles on her wise forethought in providing attractions that increase her popularity._ Children Cry for Pitcher's Castoria.

As a result the crossing was successfully made. Inter Mountain .-—The smallpox seems to have run its coarse in Batte and it has been almost two weeks now since the last batch of new cases.
