LOST THEIR LIVES.
A Skiff Capsized at Benton and Two
of the Seven Occupants Drowned.
Fort Benton, April 19.—[Special to
the Herald.]—This morning at 7 o'clock
seven workmen employed on the Benton
bridge left this city in a skiff to go out in
the stream to a large Hat boat containing
the steam pile driver. An inexperienced
oarsman was handling tbe skiff, which
drifted against a guy rope and capsized,
throwing the seven men into the water.
All succeeded in seizing the guy rope.
Four of them clung to it and finally
reached the fiat boat, to which it was at
tached. One let go, being an expert swim
mer, and swam ashore with all
his clothing, including a pair) of
long-legged gum boots. Two others
either lost their presence of mind
or were seized with cramp, for they let go
their hold and were drowned. One was a
Mr. G. H. Rittenhonse, an engineer, lately
from Helena, where his family now resides.
The other was Will Buchanan, aged 19, a
son of Joseph Buchanan, a shoemaker of
this city. Efforts are being made to
recover the bodies, but there is little hope
of that in Buch a stream until nine or ten
days elapse, when the bodies will come to
the surface probably many miles below.
jumpeiTtheir^job.
Laborers Become Dissatisfied With
Their Contract and Throw it
up—A New Crew Em
ployed.
A few days ago a party of Swedes took
a contract to excavate the lot on Main
street upon which is to be erected the
Auerbach & Beveridge building. After
working a short time—two days—they dis
covered yesterday, mach to their surprise,
that the earth weighed 16 oz. to the pound
and measured three feet to the yard and
that they were losing money on their job.
Consequently they were not slow in jump
ing the job, notwithstanding the fact
that they had contracted to do the work
for a fixed amount, and when Mr. Aner
bach pat in an appearance this morning,
the sons of toil were lounging abont the
lot and basking in the pleasant sunshine,
waiting to see who would be the next to
tackle the job. A consultation followed
which resulted in the selection of a new
contractor, who agreed to enter into a bond
to perform the work for $800. The job
was given him under those conditions, bat
ap till noon to-day neither he or the bond
had materialized. It is stated by
those familiar with the business that the
work cannot he performed for less than
$1,000, exclusive of extras, if rock should
be encountered in the embankment. It is
estimated that there are over 1,700 yards
of earth in the area, which must not alone
be excavated but banled away by teams to
a point below the Montana Central depot
It is the same old story, however, an in
competent contractor who, in order to out
bid honest competition, takes the job for
nothing to ultimately throw it up, or the
builder or architect who imagine he is
having the work done very cheaply. The
result is as above stated, and instead of the
work being expedited it is encumbered and
delayed, costing at times more than any
reasonable sum that might be allowed origi
nally. Such character of work, is only a
question of figures, which owner and
builder can easily decipher, and if it costs
60 cents a yard to remove earth it should
require no mathematical problem to demon
strate that the work could be performed
for any lesser amount. The Swedes are
now hunting another job, and probably ere
this have undergone a lesson in arithmetic
which will better enable them to figure
with more satisfaction upon any contracts
to be hereafter awarded.
The Rock Island in Helena.
Eastern arrivals over the Northern Pa
cific to day inclnded C. L. Canfield and
wife, who are registered at tbe Grand
Central. Mr. Canfield is the accredited
agent of the Bock Island and Albert Lea
routes for the Northwest, and as the rep
resentative of those famous and favorite
lines comes to the Territory to permanently
reside, making his headquarters in Helena.
The gentleman and his better half are
cordially welcomed to our mountain me
tropolis. The Herald people feel them
selves well acquainted with Mr. Canfield
at first sight. He is not nnknown by
reputation to the western ''press gang."
We recall him in the years past when at
the head of tbe leading journal of Eureka,
Nevada. Before that date, he was point
ing, as a mere youth, to the gold diggings
of Montana, bnt was intercepted at
Owyhee, Idaho, by home letters that in
fluenced to tarn him back. He has eince
spent intervals of time in the States and
Territories of the Far West, and no one
feels more contented among the frontiers
men and pioneers than he. For the past
three years he has bad charge of tbe rail
road department of the Chicago Times , a
position he surrendered to accept the com
mission tendered by that magnificent cap
tain of travel and transportation, Manager
St John, of the Bock Island. Welcome,
again, Mr. Canfield.
Queer Fits and Staris.
The fits and starts—using these words in their
literal meaning—of the nervous people often
strike the beholder as ludicrous. The nerves of
hearing of such unfortunates are painfully acute,
and impinged by abrupt, unexpected noises,
lead them sometimes to perform antics worthy
of a jumping-jack. At the root of nervousness,
in most instances, is non-assimilation of the food,
and consequently Innutrition of the nerves as of
other tissues of the body. This prolonged is, of
course, productive of serious nervous disease.
The remedy is Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, that
invigorate the stomach and enables it to perform
its functions properly. Soon after commencing
a course of it, it will be found that the nerves
grow more tranquil by day, nightly repose be
comes less Interrupted, and appetite more vigor
ous and satisfying. These are the initial indica
tions, followed by the complete restoration of
nervous vigor. The Bitters also cure fever and
ague, liver complaint and constipation.

GUILTY AS CHARGED.
George Godas Must Pay the Death
Penalty For the Murder
of Embody.
The Grand Jury Makes Its Pinal Eeport
and is Excused Until To-Morrow
Morning — Emmett O'Gor
man on Trial For Shoot
ing His Mistress
Other Court
Notes.
A day of nnnsnal interest was this in
the district court. The jury in the case
of George Godas, the half-breed on trial
for the mnrder of Embody, fall accounts
of which have heretofore appeared in
these columns, after being oat abont
twenty hoars, came into court at 11 o'clock
this morning and announced that they had
found the defendant gnilty of mnrder in
the first degree, ander the tenth count of
the indictment. The prisoner received
the information with stolid indifference,
barely raising his eyes or moving a muscle,
apparently totally oblivious of the legal
drama that was being enacted. After the
verdict had been rendered, Counselor
Hunt, who has displayed untiring efforts
in behalf of his client, moved for a new
trial and arrest of judgment on the ground
that the indictment was insufficient to
support any judgment higher than that of
murder in the second degree, for the reason
that it fails to allege a specific intent to
take life or to allege a deliberate and
malicious killing in the charging part of
the indictment. The notice ot motion for
a new trial on the ground of this alleged
error, and others, as also the notice of
motion in arrest of judgment and bill of
exceptions are to be prepared and filed in
due time.
The prisoner was remanded to the cus
tody of the sheriff pending the hearing of
the motions above cited. His sentence has
not yet been pronounced.
the grand jury report.
Following these proceedings, appeared
W, E. Cox, foreman of the Territorial
grand jury, who presented their final re
port and asked to be discharged. The re
port was received and filed, though lor
reasons best known to His Honor, the jury
was requested to be again present in court
to-morrow morning at 9 o'clock, as de
velopments might arise in certain matters
now under consideration which might re
quire the attention of that body.
Following is the report of the grand
jury :
To Hon. N. W. McConnell, Judge of the
First Judicial District Court of the Ter
ritory of Montana, in and for the County
of Lewis and Clarke :
We, the grand jury appointed by yon to
inquire into matters appeitaining to this
county, find as follows:
"We have made diligent inquiry of all
cases submitted to us and reported all
such to the court.
"We have made special inquiry as to
minors visiting or frequenting gambling
houses or saloons, and could obtain no
authentic information or proof wherein the
law governing such cases was violated.
"We also have made careful examination
into the facts connected with the illness,
treatment and death of the late Dr.
Eckles, and also the autopsy; we find no
canse for action on oar part.
We find the county jail in a safe, clean
and healthy condition, and the inmates
properly cared for.
We have also visited the county poor
farm, and found the same in good condi
tion, the inmates properly cared for, and
all apparently satisfied with their care and
treatment. The attending physician seems
fully performing his duties, and is comply
ing with all the requirements as to visits
and dispensing of medicines.
We find the county treasurer's accounts,
according to his cash hook, agree with the
amount to his credit in the bank. There
is now to the credit of this county a bal
ance of over $100,000 for which there is no
immediate use, and as there is at all times
a considerable balance in the hands of the
county treasurer, we would recommend
that such laws be enacted by the legisla
tive assembly of Montana as will enable
the county to receive some benefits from
snch funds as are not needed for immediate
dishnrsements.
We would further recommend, while
such large balances to the credit
of the county remain in the hands
of the treasurer, that the Hon.
B >ard of County Commissioners levy no
higher per cent, of taxation than is actu
ally necessary to defray the current ex
penses of this county.
We recommend further that the present
form of licenses be changed similar to that
used by the U. S. Government for internal
revenue purposes.
We have visited the County Clerk and
Kecorder's office, found the records and all
business connected with the office con
ducted in proper shape.
The records of the probate jndge are
neatly kept and in proper form.
We find that in the settlement of estates
of deceased persons, excessive and unrea
sonably large claims for medical, legal and
other services have been presented and al
lowed, and we recommend that in the fu
ture, the probate judge and public admin
istrator shall more carefnlly guard estates
against the allowance of unreasonable
claims.
In conclusion, we tender thanks to Mr.
Wm. Wallace Jr., oar efficient county at
torney, for the valuable assistance he has
rendered ns during onr deliberation.

Excavation Work.
The owners of the lot on Main street
formerly occupied by the stores of Clewell
and Silverman, which is now being exca
vated for the purpose of erecting a fine,
three-story brick block, state that the
figures in last evening's paper in regard to
the contract for excavating are in error.
The architects measured the lot and found
it contained 1,200 yards of earth, which, at
the usual price for removing (50 cents per
yard) would amonnt to $600.
The first and second contracting parties
agreed to do the job at about that fignre,
bnt both of them were nnable to find
bondsmen for the performance of the con
tract. These workmen have been paid off
in full for the work performed by day
wages, and the contract ba9 been let for
the sam of $815. The owners of the
property, Messrs. Aaerbach & Beveridge,
are among the"most responsible, enterpris*
ing and liberal dealing of oar citizens, and
proceeding in a business-like manner, are
having the work performed under contract
by responsible persons.
President of the Company.
George A. Rawson, president of the new
water company, arrived to-day from Bos
ton, accompanied by P. R. Driver, of
Racine, Wis., book-keeper, and J. J. Stever,
of Fairfield, Iowa, pipeman. Mr. Rawson
is here to inspect the water plant and wit
ness the formal inauguration of the splen
did works secured to the city through the

A SERIOUS STRIKE.
The Messenger Kids of the Western
Union Telegraph Office Go
Out on a Strike Because
Accused of Wrongful
Acts.
Did patrons of the Western Union fail
to receive promptly to-day all messages
assigned them, the cause thereof may be
learned from the fact that the delivery
kids of that concern went out on a strike
yesterday, the entire force suspending
simultaneously. And all on account of a
fifteen-cent blackiDg brush, which, the
boys claim, they were accused of purloin- |
ing by the manager of the concern. The j
lads strenuously denied the soft impeach
ment, claiming that they had not taken
the article iu question, and in consequence ,
suffering under the indignity, tendered
their resignation. They mo*-* ein phatically
protest against the shadow of guilt thrown
over them, aud propose to j lace the mat
ter before Jay Gould for adjudication.
They did not take the blackinghrush.they
protest, and they do not «• e why the
charge should be laid at their door when
there are"alotof othermugs 'occupying the
same quarters. This morning they met
and decided upon writing a letter to the
New York Corsair, stating the entire fact
of the occurrence. The meeting was held
in a vacant lot on Lower Main street, and
thongh some opposition was shown to the
election of one of the party as chairman,
his fame as a slugger silenced all objec
tion and he was chosen for the honor. In
the meanwhile a large number of urchins
had gathered on the premises and when
the chairman began his address consider
able interest was manifested in the pro
ceedings.
"Fellers," began Jerry, after assuming
the chair, "der time hez come when we's
got ter fire der bon 's o' slavery. A grindin'
monopoly is er tryin' to down us, but it
don't go wid dis gang. We didn't steal no
blackin' brush and we want dose mugs in
dat oifis ter know it. We's got ter win
dis yere racket if et costs our lives." [Ap
plause.] "Dose dat bosses usneendn't tink
dey are goin' to 'cus9 us of stealin.' be
cause if dey do dey's dead cranky." [More
applause and cries of yon bet, give it to
'em Jerry, etc ] "Now der question is,
are we goin' to he freemen or are we
slaves ?"
"Oh, Rats."
This vulgar interruption to his flight of
oratory fell with an unpleasant vibration
on Jerry's ear, and scanning the face# of
the crowd of admiring kids aronnd him,
he failed to detect the culprit.
"Ef I catch any snoozer sayin'rats again
while I'm talkin' I'll spile der beauty of
his mag."
The chairman was allowed to continue
his remarks without farther interruption,
and when he had finished, each boy took
the following oath :
"We swear to stand by each other in the
fight against the company until Jay Gonld
says we didn't steal the blacking brush."
"And der feller what goes hack on dat
gets licked," remarked the chairman amid
great applause as the last hoy took the
oath.
The meeting then adjourned.
Death of Mrs. Downs.
Htlena relatives were apprized at a late
hour last night of the death of Mrs. M. E.
Downs, which sad event occurred at Chi
cago at 9:10 p. m. yesterday. After spend
ing the past several months in New York,
Mr. aud Mrs. Downes, about a week ago,
left their winter quarters at the Murray
Hill Hotel and started on their journey to
ward their mountain home. While en
route Mrs. Downs was taken seriously ill,
and arriving at Chicago a physician was
summoned, her malady developing a pros
trating case of diphtheria. Medical aid and
assidnons nursing availed little in staying
the ravages of the dread disease, and the
end came yesterday, the sorrowful news
being flashed here a few moments after the
sufferer had breathed her last.
Mrs. Downs, nee Miss Andell Kepner,
was a lovely society lady of Helena, and
became a bride in June—less than a year
ago. About three years ago she tanght one
term in onr public schools and endeared
herself to every pupil who had the good
fortune of her instruction. Her family
relatives in Helena are |Mrs. A. R. Gates
and Mrs. C. W. Townsend, sisters, and E.
T. Kepner, a brother. The parental home
is at Hartford, Ohio, where the aged father
and mother live and where the remains
will probably be conveyed for interment
The sympathy of the Herald and many
Montana friends is expressed in behalf of
*the sorely bereaved husband and sorrow
ing relatives.
