Two Men Dashed to Pieces in the
Colusa Mine at Butte.
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

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.

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

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
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

The Dickens party will be given the

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.
All the Water Works Material on the
Ground and Water Will be
Furnished in Three
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.

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

states the salient features of Montana's
metropolis. One page of the cover is left

—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. Gilbert, is well known as
a historical writer, having written histories
of California, Oregon, Nevada and other
Pacific coast conntries that are acknowl
edged authorities on the subjects they
treat of. He will make an equal success
in his Helena book.
Not so Fortunate.
The Butte Inter Mountain says : * Ed.
King, of this city, has been granted a
patent for a sleigh knee."
We know a young man who took his
girl out sleigh riding a short time ago. His
team ran away, threw both ont and the
driver had a sleigh knee for two weeks
afterwards, but he was not lucky enough
to get a patent on it.

— F. M. Chadbourne, the genial high
tenor and mining operator, returned to

the Orient. He has been to New York
and London since he left and reports a
pleasant trip. He left London abont two
weeks ago and says Dr. Leiser and Hugh
McQuaid came down to the dock to see
him off. The Doctor he reports merged in
professional study, while the giddy and
handsome Mctjuaid is still indulging in
the pleasures of nineteenth centnry life at
the court of St James. Mr. Chadbourne
denies the report that Hugh and Victoria
are contemplating a matrimonial alliance.
If there ever was any foundation for it,
the project is in abeyance at least for the
present, as both Victoria and Hugh are in
deep mourning over the death of Kaiser
Wilhelm. (The latter advices have been
received by cable since Mr. Chadbourne
sailed.) "Chad" has been away for some
time and is receiving a hearty welcome
from his Helena friends.
A Canard.
Montana Central officials inform the Her

canard. We are told the bridge is
still in position and that all Manitoba
trains are on time.
