They Do Not Recollect Mr. Crafton,
Who Claims to Have Been
Here in '64.
The Herald's interview with Mr. J. W.
Crafton, of Springfield, 111., published yes
terday, has aroused some comment among
our old timers, a few of whom stoutly
maintain that no such person as Mr. Craf
ton was with the Fairweather party when
gold was discovered in Alder gulch. Mr.
Homer Hewins, who camped with Fair
weather near Bannack when he was setting
out on his famous expedition, says he knew
every one of the party and Mr. Crafton was
not one of them. On meeting Mr. Hewins
this morning a Herald reporter started
with Mr. Crafton, but the gentleman was
not to be found, and it is presumed he de
parted last night.
Though a little mixed in some of his
statements, Mr. Crafton evidenced too mach
familiarity with the persons and scenes of
the early days to leave any doubt that he
was an actor in the events
that then transpired. He talked
of matters and things that pertained to
those times with a freedom and ease that
was evidently founded upon intimate
acquaintance therewith and, while some
old timers doubt his story, we believe he
was the person he represented himself
and was really on the ground at the time.
The fact that he was then a boy would
account for the non-remembrance of him
by the old timers, and also for the inac
curacies betrayed in his recital of events
However, Mr. Crafton will soon be back
However, Mr. Crafton will soon be back
and he can then compare notes with his
Meanwhile we call attention to an error
in his story regarding the christening of
Virginia City. He said the camp was
named Yirena for one of the Fairweather
party. He had the name nearly correct
but not the facts. It is a matter of his
tory that Virginia City was first named
Varina in honor of the wife of Jefferson
Davis, but that the name was changed to
Vir "nia when it was found that the first
choice did not sait the prevailing senti
ment. It is u matter of very little moment
now, bnt all' old timers feel interested in
it and do not like to see wrong impressions
given ont by persons whose recollections
are at fault. The interview with Mr.
Crafton was sought by the Herald re
porter and no* volunteered by that gentle
man, as some have imagined.
Marysville Heard From.
A message was received from Marysville
to-day, in response to the challenge of the
Inde]>endent base ball nine, saying that
the Marysville boys did not feel disposed
to play for a large parse on the Helena
grounds, fearing local influence against
them, but that they might arrange a game
for a small purse on the Marysville
grounds. If they came to Helena at all it
would be with the understanding that the
home club would pay their expenses. In
this case it is not likely a game will be
arranged for next Sunday, though we sup
pose negotiations will be kept up until a
match is brought about.

Did Not Appreciate It.
A little 7 year old girl, admired by her
Helena friends for her brightness, a short
time ago perpetrated the following :
She was ont for a drive with her mother
and aunt, when a storm came np. Her
aunt, tearing the little one would take
cold, took off her wrap and pnt it around
her. The little miss objected strennonsly,
as the garment was much too large and the
sleeves completely obeenred her hands. Her
mother reproved her for her pettishness
and said :
"You ought to be very thankful to have
snch a good annty to lend yon her cloak."
"I am thankfnl," said the little one, mak

An Aisnranceof Health.
Among the assurances of health afforded us by
the regular discharge of the bodily functions,
none is more important and reliable than that
which regularity of the bowels gives us. If there
is any—even a temporary interruption of this—
the liver and the stomach suffer conjointly with
inactive organs, and still greater mischief ensues
if relief is not speedily obtained. A laxative,
above all cavil on the score of mineral composi
tion or violent effect, is Hostetter s Stomach Bit
ters. approved by the medical profession and a
most important item of the family mat.ria med
lea of Amer can households. It is botanic, pain
less in action, and if persisted In. effectual. The
stomach and liver, in no less degree and no less
promptly and thoroughly than the bowels, are
regulated and toned by it, and it is an admirable
defense ngaintt malarialand rheumatic ailments,
and a benign remedy for kidney complaints,
nervousness and debility. my!S-21-23w24
Children Cry for Pitcher's Castoriai
FROM SOUTH AFRICA.
Our Former Townsman, Moses Moore,
Again Heard From.
The Herald is handed the following
letter from a former prominent citizen of
Helena, now and for some years a resident
of the South African gold fields. We are
glad to print it, as of interest to numbers
of our readers :
Johannesburg, Transvaal Republic,
South Africa, February 26, 1888. — Eon.
James Fergus, Fori Maginnis, Montana :—
Yonr esteemed favor was received in due
time. You will see that I am very prompt
in answering letters. Well, 1 am here in
the place selling goods. This is a place of
afipnt ten to twelve thonsand inhabitants,
grown up in the last eighteen months to
be the most important town in the Trans
vaal. You would hardly think that in eo
short a time there would be at least forty
qnartz mills rnnning, bnt sueh is the fact.
They are mostly small ones, from five to
ten and twenty stamps, and one of fifty.
The latter mill has had its first clean np,
the same being very satisfactory to the
stockholders, especially those that are far
away, as the stock has advanced consider
ably. I believe this is the first qnartz reef
I ever saw on a level plain, and it is cer
tainly a good one. Water is somewhat
scarce, but coal is plenty and not very
hard to get. There will be a tramway to
the coal banks soon.
I see you have been troubled with horse
and cattle thieves. We sometimes have a
little of that sort here, but not mneh. This
is about the most civil and inferior country
I ever was in. They have tried a time or
two to imitate the Vigilantes, bat invaria
bly fail. They have made several attempts
to break into the jail to get at some
roughs, but it amounted to nothing. If
the sheriff were to drop the key in sight I
don't think any one wonld pick it up.
We have jnst got through with a very
excitiug(?) presidential election. There
were very few who heard or cared any
thing about it. The polls were kept open
a whole month and the people voted from
day to day as suited their convenience,
giving repeaters a fair chance, bnt they
have finally got through. Nearly every
one voted for the same man—that is those
who had a right to vote, and they are very
scarce. I believe the law is that foreigners
have to reside here fifteen years, own real
estate, belong to the chnrcb, and be mar
ried men to entitle them to vote. Rather
rough on old batcbelors and grass widowers.
I am glad to hear that Hugh Kirkendall
has done well—a working man like him
ought to succeed. I remember when
things went "rocky" with him, as they
went with me when I first came to this
country, bnt I now have all the credit I
want in Cape Town.
Remember me kindly to Bob Hamilton,
Niel Vawter and all the balance of the old
boys, especially old Jackey Smith and old
Billy Weir. Yours truly,

The Manitoba Extension to Salt Lake
The Salt Lake Tribune is responsible for
the statement that it is Jim Hill's inten
tion to reach oat for Salt Lake with his
road, and that soon the Manitoba will be
rolling its cars into the Zion of the Rocky
Mountains. They claim to have it on good
authority that as soon as the Montana
Central reaches Batte, surveys will be
started to extend the road southward to
Salt Lake. This once being reached a
line to Los Angeles and the Pacific coas
wonld be the next thing in order. The
Salt Lakers hail the news with pleasure,
as it wonld give them another outlet both
east and west, besides inaugurating com

other northern mineral sections to the Salt

that snch a northern line would go as far
south as Salt Lake before striking for the
coast seems rather improbable. Still the

Great Falls to Sup the Crowd this After
noon After their Return from
Great Falls, May 18.— [Special to the
Herald].—The Montana Central excursion,
in honor of the Board of Trade, left Helena
at half past seven this morning. The
train consisted of an engine and five cars
nnder charge of Conductor Green, James
Derrigan engineer. All the cars were filled.
A canvass by a Herald reporter disclosed
the fact that fnlly 150 people of Helena
participated in the excursion. The train
left the depot promptly on time and made
the first stop at Marysville Junction. At
Craig we changed engines owing to hot
boxes on the one we started with. Noth
ing occurred to mar the pleasure of the trip
and the ran was made from Helena to
Great Falls, ninety-eight miles, in about
three hours. The day, though cloudy, was
not unpleasant and
THE MAGNIFICENT SCENERY
through the canyons was enjoyed by the
passengers through open windows. Man
ager Shelby looked after the comfort
of one and all of the guests most
satisfactorily. While en route the passen
gers enjoyed the Board of Trade beer and
cigars, which added materially to creative
comfort. On the way, ballots were passed
around among the passengers for
CHOICE FOR PRESIDENT.
One hnndred and eighty-three votes were
cast, with the following resalt: Broadwa
ter 67, Blaine 54, Cleveland 25, Gresham
13, R. C. Walker 5, John Sherman 5, Belva
Lockwood 2. Whereupon Broadwater was
declared Mentana's favorite son. A
stop of bat five minutes was made
at Great Falls and the train moved on to
the smelter, five miles down the river,
where Manager Harry Child entertained
the hungry crowd at a
TIN PLATE DINNER,
and showed the visitors the beauties of
Black Eagle Falls, Big Spring, etc. After
the collation the train returned to Great
Falls. The town was decorated with flags
and a band was out to receive the guests.
From here we go to Sand Coulee and re

mer, and a bag piper of the Caledonian
Club furnished mnsic coming out. The sun
is bright and the day has been all that
conld be expected, and the excursionists
are enjoying themselves heartily.
Great Falls, May 18.— [Special to the
Herald.]—The splendid excursion train of
the Montana Central arrived on time
within the city limits, having made the
trip in three hoars and a half.
On crossing the bridge the
guests were welcomed with music
and Colonel Broadwater received an ova
tion. The train proceeded promptly to
the smelter where the guests were wel
corned by General Manager Child, Paris
Gibson and others. A generous
dinner was served. The visitors then pro
ceeded to examine the extensive buildings
of the Montana Smelting company and
view the glorions scenery
They will return soon

A Noted Missourian Visiting Old Mon
A distinguished guest, stopping for a few
days in the city, is Hon Nick Ford, of Mis
souri, who was among the voyagenrs in
these mountain parts nearly or quite a
quarter of a century ago—a resident at
Bannack and Virginia City in the early
gold delving days of those famons aurifer
ous gulches, the Grasshopper and Alder,
(1863-64.) Succeeding years found him
back at St Joe, where he has since been a
conspicuous public figure. He was twice
triumphantly elected to Congress from the
Ninth district of Missouri, handsomely
beating his Democratic opponents, Rea in
1878 and General Craig in 1880. He was
also the Republican standard-bearer for
Governor of the State, and hustled the late
General Marmadnke as never before was
hustled a Confederate-Democratic candi
date in Bourbon-rid den Missouri. The
visit of Mr. Ford is cordially welcomed by
the old time Montanians, very many of
whom are encountered here who remem
ber him well. He is a guest at the Cosmo

some while there have been exasperating
thefts committed abont the city, houses

A valise containing clothes, a harness,
saddle, blankets, buggy robes, etc., were
among the effects secured, ownership for
all of which has been found. The crimi

Two of Our Young Society People,
Highly Connected, Steal a March
on the "Old Folks."
Helena society is agitated over a mar
riage which was coDsnmmated last fall,but
which has remained a profound secret nntil
last evening. The contracting parties are
residents of the West Side, popular young
society people and highly connected. The
yonng people were engaged about a year
ago ; and, as the match was an excellent
one, satisfactory in every way to the par
ents of both the yooDg gentleman and
lady, no effort was made to keep the matter
a secret Bat the father of the yonng lady
insisted that she should spend two more
years at school. When the yonng lady left
for school, it was a coincidence that the
young man had business in that direction.
The tacts are that, going tbrongh Wiscon
sin, a stop was made in a country town, a
license procured and a magistrate per
formed the ceremony that made tbem man
and wife. An hour later the young lady
was on a train destined for her
school, and the yonng man came home
The way the matter leaked out is as
follows: The young man being wealthy,
and feeling unusually so at the time, as
tonished the magistrate by giving him a
fifty dollar bill, when his usual fee was a
dollar. He kept the secret for some months
but finally "gave it awav" to the local
newspaper, and copies of the newspaper
reached Helena yesterday.
The explanation is that the young peo
ple were determined to get married this
year, and, when the yonng lady should re
turn in June, if the consent of the parents
could be obta-ned, they would be married
over again; if not the documents would lie
brought forth and the young man wonld
claim his bride.
While the details do not suit the parents
of the young people, yet they have no ob
jection to the end attained, and we pre
sume they will receive the blessings of the
"old folks" in due season.
What Shape are They Now In ?
The time set for the sale of the $150,000
of city bonds, for the sewer system, was at
noon to-day. The First National Bank bid
par for $.50,000, and J of one per cent
premium for $10,000 more. The Merchants
National Bank, tor a Chicago customer, bid
par lor the whole $150,000, conditioned that
the city would pay a commission of two
per cent., that a favorable opinion should
be rendered by Handers, Cullen & Handers
on the legal points, and that the bonds be
delivered in Chicago tree of charge to the
purchasers. The whole matter will proba
bly come before the City Council this even
Rates to the Presidential Conventions.

Food makes Bicod and Blood makes
Beauty. Improper digestion of food ntess
sarily produces bad blood, resulting in a
feeling of fullness in tbe stomach, acidity,
béai tburn, sick-headache, and other dys
peptic symptoms. A closely confined life
causes indigestion, constipation, biliousness
and less of appetite. To remove these
troubles there is no remedy equal to Prickly
Ash Bitters. It has been tried and proven
to be a specific.
