Butte, March 15th.—[Special to the Herald.]—John Holland and Stephen Williams, two unmarried miners, met with probably fatal accident in the shaft of the Colusa mine this morning. They were coming up in the cage from the 325 foot level and about 100 feet from the surface the engineer was signaled to slack np. In doing so he let the thing go com pletely and the men fell to the bottom, over 200 feet. They were taken ont sense less and mutilated and will die. FLOOD WATERS. The Teton R. R. Bridge Washed Out— Manitoba Trains Abandoned. Fort Assinaboine, M. T. t March 15.— [Special to the Herald.]—The ice in the Missouri river is rapidly breaking np and a general flood is already in progress. The Manitoba bridge on the Teton is gone. The water in Three Rivers is rising at a rate never before known, and all trains on the western division of the Manitoba road have been abandoned. Mineral Land Work. The work of the executive committee of the Mineral Land Convention is progress ing rapidly and will probably be finished by the end of the month. About three thousand dollars have already been sab scribed and there wilj be no trouble in raising all the fands required. Affidavits as to the mineral character of lands in railroad limits are pouring in. One was received yesterday from Albert W. Tanner, of Red Bluff, Madison connty, who certifies to the following interesting facts : He has a house on a tract of land that is claimed by the N. P. Railroad Co. The house has stood there since 1867 and there are several quartz mines on the ground that have been and are producing regularly. Yet the railroad company have claimed the whole township and their agents have offered to quit-claim to Mr. Tanner for $300. They claim it as agricultural land, yet the affidavit sets forth that only 2,000 acres out of the 90,000 in the township could be classed as agricultural land, over ninety per cent of it being mountainous and mineral ground. Building Notes. Mr. J. D. Thompson is having cat stone delivered for his new business block, cor ner of Main and Bridge streets, work upon which will begin next week. The magnificent bank bnildiog in con templation by the Merchants National Bank will be erected this season, and Mr. Hershfield says they hope to move into it before next winter. It will be built on the corner of Main and Edwards streets and will cost without the fixtures $ 60 , 000 . The buildiDg now standing on that corner will be torn down, and the new structure will be placed on the street line. It will be a grand improvement for that part of Main street. Work will begin in a short time. A Generous Offer. Mr. Huston T. Reeder, one of Helena's large real estate holders, offers rare induce ments to manufacturers. To any one who will erect a suitable building and carry on the business of manufacturing woolen fabrics in Helena, he agrees to donate suf ficient land for the purpose in block 4 of the Helena townsite, or two corner lots, one in block 71 and the other in block 64—opposite corners. To a different party for the same purpose he will give twenty acres on the Ten Mile road only a few miles from the city. Mr. Reeder author izes the Herald to make this statement aud will talk business with anyone who will consider the proposition in good faith. Here is ou opportunity for the manufac turing genius to "catch on." Newspaper Change. Harrison Spaulding, editor of of the Missoula Times, has purchased the Misoulian, the Democratic paper of that place, here tofore published by Duane J. Armstrong. Mr. Spanlding has consolidated the two papers and will combine both publications in The Missoulian, the first number of which was issued this week. The name Missoulian has been retained, that being the oldest paper. Mr. Spaulding has achieved merited success since he started the Times in Missoula a few years ago and this new departure will be hailed with pleasure by his many friends. Pest House. The Connty Commissioners have fitted up the old poor farm building as a pest house and the three small pox patients were removed thither this morning. The prompt action of the health anthorities in isolating and confining the disease is com mendable. DRAW THE LINE. Don't repine, Draw the line, Easter day is near.

Children Cry for Pitcher's Castoria. From the Dally Herald ot March 16. DESTROYING ELEMENT. Destructive Fire on Main Street— Clewell's, Silverman's and Wilson's Stores Burned Out—A $12,000 Blaze. Fire was discovered in a small jewelry store next to Morris Bros', building on sonth Main street abont 2 o'clock this morning and the alarm at once brought out the department. As the house was a frame structure and an old-time building, its dry timbers formed splendid food for the flames, which spread with lightning rapidity, and before a stream was turned on the jewelry store and the frame bnild ing adjoining it on the north, occupied by the stores of T. H. Clewell and M. Silver man, were wrapped in flames. Willing hands removed much of the goods from the burning buildings and placed them ou the sidewalk in front of the adjoining stores. Scarcely anything was saved from the jew elry store, bnt Clewell and Silverman managed to get ont their show cases, and the greater part of goods on the shelf. Each of the latter has a fire-proof ware house in the rear, and these sheltered the stored goods completely. What was left in the stores was either burned np or badly damaged by water. The fire depart ment fonght the flames bravely, and suc ceeded at last in subduing them, though not before the jewelry store bad been com pletely destroyed, and the roof and walls of the other building burned through, leaving nothing bat the shell of the latter standing. Stone walls on either side and the absence of wind pre vented further spread of the flames. The origin of the fire is a mystery and is credited to an incendiary. The blaze broke out in the rear ot the jewelry store, hot was not discovered in time to check its headway, as the dry woodwork burned like tinder. The buildings were owned by Auerbach & Beveridge and, though commanding a high rent, were cheap structures built in the early days. They were uninsured and could probably be replaced for $2,000. The losses and insurance are as follows : T. H. Clewell, stationary, books and no tions. loss $4,000 ; insurance $3,000. M. Silverman, guns, ammunition, fruits and notions, loss $3,000 ; insurance $3,800. P. Wilson, jeweller, loss $2,000 insur ance $1,600. Mr. Clewell removed what goods were saved to the Israel block on Park avenue, where he will probably open np in a few days. Mr. Silverman also stored the re mainder of his stock, pending the securing of another stand. The total loss by the fire will reach about $ 12 , 000 . Setting aside all considerations of the loss occasioned the tenants, the fire is gen erally regarded as a public benefaction in asmuch as it removes two frame shacks that were unfit to have a place on the main business street of a city like Helena. Their destruction will result in the erection of a substantial brick bnilding that will be on a par with the Barrounding houses. The site is a valuable one, as evidenced by the fact that since 1867, the time when the larger bailding was erected, the houses have brought in over $40,000 in rents to their owners. Mr. Silverman informs ns that his stock, as inventoried Janaary first, was valued at $6,000. This includes goods in the ware house, which remained intact. His insur ance on the whole is $3,800. The jewelry store, in which the fire originated, was owned by Peter Wilson, who bought ont Mr. Bradley two weeks ago. He attributes the origin of the fire to a lighted lamp, which was left horning when the store was closed np last night. It had been his custom to leave the light burning every night, and he thinks it must have exploded and started the blaze. He will open up again as soon as he finds a suitable stand. Thievery at the Fire. It seems there was considerable thievery goiDg on at the fire this morning. One man was arrested in the act of pocketing some tobacco, which had been brought out of Silverman's store and laid on the sidewalk with other goods. There is more or less of such rogaery committed at every fire where opportunity is offered to take advantage of the hurry and excitement to steal. A fire patrol, such a? in force in large cities, would assist materially in saving the losers by fire still farther losses by robbery. Some steps should be taken to that end. Arbor Day. Governor Leslie has issued a proclama tion naming the third Tuesday of April, 1888, as Arbor Day, and calling upon the people of Montana to observe it by plant ing trees, hedges and shrubbery, aud beautifying homes, gardens, cemeteries, highways, public grounds aud church yards. The day is set aside for such pur poses by act of the legislature, which grants special privileges to persons who improve their premises by the p'anting of trees. Y. M. C. A. The Association has three entertain ments in prospect for the next two months. The Dickens party will be given the second week in April. Daring the latter part of April the Ladies Committee will give a musical, and about May 15th the Gymnasium Exhibition will take place. Great preparations are being made for all these entertainments. Newspaper Notes. An agreeable transformation is the Miner, which emerges from the smoke and grime of the Batte camp habited in a bran new dress. Mollinelli's Real Estate Record is booked to appear March 25th inst. It will be a Sunday paper. It is again rumored that a weekly publi cation exclusively devoted to the mining interests of the Territory is soon to appear in this city, with Mesars^Smith & Marney as the proprietors. Mr. Kennedy, late ad interim of the local Democratic oracle, is about to Btart an organ of his own at Boulder, having pro vided himself with press and type for that purpoee. Mr. K. first intended to launch his newspaper at Great Falls, bnt the town site company had sold oat all its lots before he got there. Gronnd for the plant being found at Boulder, there the venture is to be tried. The paper, we are told, will be called The Gilded Age. The proprietor believes there are millions in it Some mysterious whisperings are heard abont Jerry Collins' two papers—both daily. They relate to the political coarse to bis pursued in the Delegate tussle. Plausibly they will pronounce for Maginnis in the strongest possible terms. New Mining Paper. The defunct Mining Review , a paper that flourished for a brief time in Helena, is abont to be resnscitated ander the auspices of Williams, Thurber & Trowbridge, who have bought out the old management and propose to begin the issuance of the publi cation in a short time. From the Daily Herald of March 17. ST. PATRICK S DAY. Sons of Erin Celebrating the Anni versary-Street Parade by the Meagher Guards. To day, the 17th of March, is the anui versay of the birth .of St. Patrick, the Apostle of Ireland, and as such is cele brated all over the civilized world by Irishmen and those of Irish descent as the day that gave to the world the man who redeemed Ireland from the darkness of paganism and barbarism and first planted firmiy on Erin's shores the stand ard of Christian civilization. The patriotic sons of the Emerald Isle resident in Helena were not behind hand in honoring the day. This morning the Meagher Gnards, a local militia company composed of Irishmen, turned oat in fall uniform and marched from their hall, thirty-five strong, through the streets to the strains of "The Harp That Once Through Tara's Hall" performed on the fife with drum corps accompaniment. The Gnards marched np Broadway and to the Cathedral, where, in a body, they at tended high mass, which was celebrated by Bishop Brondel at half-past ten. The Pastor delivered an eulogy npon the patron saint of Ireland and drew in structive conclusions from the life of the eminent missionary. After services the gnards disbauded and reassembled this afternoon at 2.30 o'clock at their hall Thence, headed by the band, they paraded the principal streets, presenting a striking martial appearance as they filed with mili tary step through the different thorogh fares, ander command of their captain, A. Dougherty. They visited the court house and serenaded Governor Leslie, the Execu tive making them a short address expres sive of his appreciation of the compliment. This ended the celebration. There was to have been a banquet to-night, bnt prepara tions could not be made in time, so the project was abandoned. The emerald colors of Ireland have been prominently displayed all day and almost every other man met on the stret wears either a shamrock or a badge of green ribbon in his buttonhole. Climatically speaking, the day has been the finest of the season and the Hibernians have bad glorious weather for their celebration. THE PUMPS HERE. All the Water Works Material on the Ground and Water Will be Furnished in Three Weeks. The engines, pomps and piping, com prising the long looked for and last install ment of material for the Wool ston water works, arrived at the depot yesterdav. and the work of setting up the pnmps will be under taken at once. The laying of what pipe remains will be pushed forward without delay. As the steam pumps are of mam moth proportions some time will be occu pied in getting them in position, hut Mr. Woolston says that everything will he completed and the works in full blast in about three weeks. Hasten the glad day. Engineer Miller Arrives. Mr. G. N. Miller, sanitary engineer of St. Paul, arrived in Helena on Thursday, and has since spent the time in looking over the gronnd preparatory to deciding npon making plans for a sewerage system for Helena, for which he has been engaged by the city. Mr. Miller is engaged in san itary engineering in St. Paul, where he has supervised the construction of many miles of sewers. He has also bad a sim ilar experience in Germany. In conversa tion with a Herald reporter he said that eventually Helena must be drained into the Missouri river, but that this is imprac ticable at the present as the work would involve an outlay of over a million dollars. For the present he thinks the sewage matter mast be carried into the valley, and there disposed of by filtration or farming. A tract of 160 acres could be profitably used for this purpose. Mr. Miller says vitrified pipe must be used for the sewers and that, though Helena is ad mirably situated for gooid drainage, the work will necessarily be expensive. In Memphis, he says, sewers were put in for $6,750 per mile, but that is a cheap system and he does not think that fifteen miles of sewers can be built in Helena for $150,000, the amount appropriated. So for the pres ent he will endeavor to devise a system that will cover the principal portions of the city and yet will not cost more than the limit prescribed. Germania Gentlemen. Cornelias Doremus, secretary of the Ger mania Life Insurance company, and Wm. Cohn, general inspector of agencies, both from New York, are arrivals in the city. With them is Frederick S. Doremus, son of the secretary, who comes to establish him self in Helena as manager of the company for Montana and Idaho. The Germania is one of the oldest and most substantial life insurance companies in the country, and we are glad to know that this city is to be come one of the headquarters of one of its departments. The Germania has invested millions of its ample capital in numbers of the most magnificent business structures that adorn the great cities, its latest invest ment in this direction being a grand struc ture in St. Paul, of the handsomest modern architecture, and eleven stories high. We may reasonably expect that the next advance west will bring the company to Helena, where an equally imposing build ing will add another monument to its world wide fame. The Herald cordially welcomes Mr. Doremus, junior, to resi dence and home in our Rocky Mountain metropolis,and bespeaks for him a hospita ble greeting from one and all of oar gener ous-hearted people. Generous Subscriptions. The little camp at the Peerless Jennie mine has come to the front with a gener ous subscription of $100 50 to the Mineral Land Association fund. The subscriptions are as follows : C. B. Yaughn, $25 ; G. F. Woodruff, $10 ; Henry Gilbert, $2 50 ; Olaf Olsen, $2.50 ; Louis Forsbnrg, $2.50 ; and the following $2 each : John Mattamore, John Nagle.

McIntosh, Pat rick Jones. An Occurrence. "Did yon ever think there was anything sentimental abont Charlie?" asked a gen tleman of Helena yesterday, referring to a mutual friend who is rather noted for his sporting proclivities and a penchant for fine dogs. "I never imagined snch a thing, yet I was told this morning that he had had several affaires du cceur." "Yea," .re joined his companion, "with tWb accent on the cur." Children Cry for Pitcher's Castorin MULTUM IN PARVO. A Packet of Pearls and Useful Infor mation About Helena. The above is the title of an unpreten tious looking folder jnst issued by Major R. C. Walker, Secretary of the Hoard of Trade. It is small enough to be enclosed in an envelope yet contains on its twelve pages a startling anay of facts and figures relative to the growth, >opulatiou and resources of Helena. It contains in brief and readable form answers to all of the many questions propounded every day by people seeking information about our thriving city. It is truly mul tum in parvo. In its compact form it pre sents more statistics on the city of Helena than anything yet published, treating of onr schools and churches, public buildings, mines, metropolitan facilities, wages, pay rolls, manufactories, business institutions, banks, societies, hotels, clubs, amusement», newspapers, railroads, express com panies, products ''and resources ; be sides interesting facts abont our cli mate, our drives, our government, our municipal finances, assessed valuation, water snpply, fael, lights and a thousand and one other things too numerous to men tion yet of interest to everyone seeking to inform himself npon Helena and its sur roundings. It is a compendium of useful information that will fill a general want with people desiring to send off to other states the salient features of Montana's metropolis. One page of the cover is left blank to receive advertisements. Several firms have already purchased a quantity, had their business cards printed on the cover, and are distributing them through the mails to other states. No better way of advertising yonr own business and the city as well was ever devised. As the supply cf the Board of Trade re ports for 1887 is exhausted, this little folder will farniah the beet possible sub stitute for that valuable and eagerly sought pamphlet._ TOWN AND TERRITORY. —Auditor Sullivan has onr thanks for a copy of the Auditor and Treasurer's reports for 1887. —Twenty-seven car loads of material for the Missouri bridge has arrived at Fort Benton. —Get the Board of Trade's "Packet of Pearls" and send it in every letter you write to friends east, west or sonth. —Jim Earp, bound over to keep the peace, gave the reqaired bonds ($500) this this morning and was released from custody. —We acknowledge the receipt of an in teresting number of the New Orleans Picayune, sent by Henry Cannon, who is sojourning in the Crescent City. —The County Commissioners this morn ing appropriated $150 to the Ladies Re lief Committee for use in relieving cases of distress among the worthy poor. —Frank Hoxie was arrested yesterday for horse stealing, committed in Wash ington Territory, and was taken West last evening by J. Saver, the officer who came after him armed with extradition papers. —The earnings of the Northern Pacific railroad for the month of February show a remarkable increase, especially in freight traffic, the earnings of which show an in crease over last year of $127,028. The in crease of total earnings is $391,261. —Benton Press: Mr. L. W. Peck, edi tor of the Wool Grower to-day forwarded to oar Delegate at Washington a petition signed by 300 persons, praying that no change be made in the present tariff on wool. —Arrivals in the city are nnmerous by every train and the stop-overs by tourists and travelers a-e many and frequent for this early in the [season. The hotels are kept busy and scarce a day passes that they are not well filled with guests. If this is the case now, how will it be later on when the tide of immigration and travel begins to roll in over the Northern Pacific and Manitoba—to say nothing of other avenues of access? Railroad men expect a large excursion travel to Helena this year, and also a considerable increase in immigration. It looks as if our hotel facilities were to be taxed to their utmost. Helena will feel the want of a mammoth hotel more next summer than ever before. Illustrating Helena. It may not be generally known that there is a work going on in Helena that will prote of great benefit to the city. We refer to the illustrated book, which Col. Gilbert and Mr. E. J. Meagher are pre paring on the Capital of Montane. They have advanced pretty far with the work and will have it done by May. It is to be a book of about 300 pages, containing il lustrated articles, descriptive of the loca tion, size and resources of Helena ; her varied industries and future prospects. Every business firm in the city will be described iu its pages, so that it will be a fine book of reference for citizens as well as an invaluable hand-book for travelers and outside people who wish to learn something about Helena. The book will be placed on sale on all the railroads and at different stores as soon as it is out, and will no doubt be a popular wck. Its com piler, Col. F. T.
