The hall name yesterday afternoon was close and finely played and the large at tendance (about 500) would have been well pleased but for the umpire. Nelson's de cisions were in favor of the Livingstons whenever the play was in anyway close. But no very decided kick was made until the eighth inning when Dowd, who was on second, came home on Beardsley's lick to center field. Dowd played the allowable trick of cutting inside of third base which he missed by thirty feet or more. The um pire claims he did not see him as he was watching the ball that was being fielded in from Beardsleys hit. Haggermiller, Helena's catcher, claims he called the um pire's attention to Dowd but the umpire would not look. After this play the Helena managers refused to proceed with the game unless a new umpire was had. The Liv ingston boys would not consent to Nelson's being deposed, a half hour was spent in wrangling in which everybody interested seemed to have a word or two and Nelson wound up the affair by declaring the result in favor of Livingston with the score of 9 to 0. One trouble about this kicking over an umpire's decision, is that the players, man agers, assistant managers, etc., seem to think that the game is being played entire ly for their personal benefit and overlook the fact that the publie, as represented by several hundred half dollars, is interested. If there is a question that can not be agreed upon it should always be submitted to some impartial competent judge on the outside his decision to be final ; but iu any case the game should be played out. The audience have some rights that should be respected. It was a pitcher's game from the start and both batteries were evenly matched and their equals have never before been seen in Helena. The outfielders of either nine had very little to do. On the bases the Helena team were superior, the Liv iugstons throwing wild and muffing badly at critical points. Outside of the batteries there were few brilliant individual plays. Hill, of Livingstons neatly caught a foul fly in the seventh. McDonald, middle field of Helenas, jndged and made a diffi cult fly catch in the eighth. Hill and Wallace made a doable play in the Bixth. Appended is the score as it stood of8 to 8 when the game was called: LIVINGSTON. AB. R. UH. PO. A. E.

Tompkins Gets a Bullet in the Jaw From the Hands of Irate Dame. an Kcsidents of the East Side were aston ished to see a weary horseman, bestriding a jaded steed, urging bis tired animal tbrongh the streets last evening, while the rider, with head held on one side, endeav ored to staunch a gory stream which was flowing from his neck and covering his apparel with blood. The wounded man rode straight to the sheriff's office, where he informed the officials that he had been shot, and after detailing the case rode on down town in search of a doctor to dress his wounds. From his version, as related to Sheriff Hathaway, it appears that the trouble occurred at the house of a Mrs. Gordon, near Clancy, Jefferson county. Tompkins' wife was staying with Mrs. Gordon, and yesterday afternoon Tomp kins rode down to get her to return home with him. She refused and he grew angry, wherenjKm Mrs. Gordon ordered him to leave. Instead, he attempted to force his wife to go with him. Mrs. Gordon inter fered audthen Tompkins turned upon her, when the woman drew a revolver to de fend herself and fired at Tompkins. The ballet entered the right side of the neck and passed ont behind the ear, indicting an ngly though not dangerous wound. Tompkins admitted that he was somewhat to blame in the matter, but wan**d the woman arrested. As the offeuce *' a8 com mitted in Jefferson coud*/ fhe officials here took no steps to m *ke an arrest, though the matter will probably be judic ially investigated by the authorities of the former f*«uty.

Fonr apartments on the first floor were thrown together, Mr. and Mrs. Holter and Mr. and Mrs. Kennett re ceiving standing in the north parlor. The rooms were brilliantly illuminated with gas and the carpets were spread with can vas for dancing. The orchestra, stationed in the main hall, discoursed inspiriting mnsic, to the strains of which the company mingled in the dance thronghout the even ing. On the second fioor were the dressing rooms and refreshment tables, where about midnight supper was served. The com pany comprised the elite of Helena society and was a brilliant array of beauty, wealth and fashion.

From the Dally Herald of June 2. FIGHTING TIE FUIES. The Helena Fire Department Called ont Twice this Morning to Disas trous Blazes on Main Street. An Incendiary Fire in the Chicago Clothing House Opens the Ball, While Later Ky. Zeigler's Stable Bums to the Ground. CASUALTY AND LOSS OF LIFE One Man Burned to Death and One Missing — Thirty-three Horses Boasted in their Stalls. THE LOSS WILL BEACH $30,000 Splendid and Satisfactory Test of the New! Water Works—Eleven Streams Playing at Once. For the first time in many months Helena has again been visited by the fire fiend, and this time its visit is marked by distressing loss of human and animal life and an appalling damage to valuable prop erty. Between midnight last night and 3 o'clock this morning two disastrous fires occurred on Main street in the very thick est populated portion of the business sec tion, entailing the death of one unfortu nate man, the destruction of thirty-fonr head of valuable horses and a loss of over $40,000. Never in the history of the city has occurred a fire confined to snch small limits, that was eo disastrous in its conse quences. THE FIRST BLAZE was discovered in the Chicago Clothing House, a Jewish furnishing establishment kept by G. Schaas. This firm was located in the old Humbert & Kennett building on Main street next to Jacqnemin's jewelry store. The fire was discovered by a passer by tbrongh the front door, burning briskly in the rear of the store, abont half-past 12 o'clock this morning. An alarm was at ooce given and the fire department turned out promptly. The engine was attached to a plug in front of Greenhood. Bohm & Co.'s store, and in few minutes the firemen had a stream of water on the flames. After fighting through dense darkness and thick smoke for some time, the flames were brought ander control and qnickly extinguished, once the firemen got the upper hand. It was tough work for a few minâtes, bat the fire laddies stnek to the job and soon came oat victors. Some goods in the rear of the store were burned and nearly all the stock was more or less damaged by water. The loss will probably reach $1,000, which is fully covered by insurance. The pro prietor of the establishment is in Cali fornia, and his brother, the manager of the house, is sick in bed at his home in this city. Two clerks, who slept in the second story, were awakened by the smoke and barely bad time to make their escape. No one can assign a reason for the blaze, and it is generally believed to have been of incendiary origin. The police are sure that such was its cause and have hopes of apprehending the incendiary. THE SECOND FIRE and the more disastrous of the two, in fact the only one involving mach loss, was in Ry. Zeigler's stable, on the west side of South Main Btreet, at the foot of Wood. Police officer Bashaw and a few other gen tlemen, who had just walked up the street from the other fire, were standing talking at the corner of Wood street, when they observed smoke issuing from the roof and walls of Zeigler's stable. They at once gave the alarm and for the second time in a few hours the fire bell rang out its ominous notes, calling the department and people to the scene of the blaze. The crowd which bad gathered at the first fire had scarcely dispersed when the second alarm was sounded, and hundreds of this assemblage, reinforced by as many more just roused from their slumbers, hastened to the dreadful scene. Meantime people on the ground had not been idle. The discoverers of the blaze, knowing that men and animals must be sleeping inside the stable, rnsbei to the bnildiDg and tried to throw open the front doors. Those were SO HOT FROM THE FIRE that was raging below that it was next to impossible to handle them. The intense heat had warped them, too, so that they slid back with difficulty ; but by 'lint of perseverance and mnscle an aperture was finally made for the entrance of the wonld be rescuers. Filled with smoke and per meated by an atmosphere charged with the most intense heat, the stable presented the effect and appearance of a scorching oven, which no one dared to enter. By great good luck a valuable black horse be longing to Ry. Zeigler was led ont and five other horses, which were tied np in the corral, were also rescued. Bat by this time the fire had gained snch headway and was burning so fiercely that it would have been snicide to perse vere in the work of rescue. This was accordingly abandoned and the thirty odd head of valuable horses in the stable were left to PERISH IN THEIR STALLS. The cry went np, too, that hnman life was in danger; that five men were sleep ing in the barn when it caught fire and no one knew whether they had escaped. This lent additional zeal to the firemen and their efforts were redoubled. They worked like Trojans. The department had arrived shortly after the alarm was received and in less time than it takes to record it had three powerful streams playing on the fire. More hose was brought and more hydrants were tapped, till in a abort time nine steady streams from the Woolston fire pings without the aid of the engine were thrown on the flames. The streams were powerful and came from all directions—Main street, Clore street, Wood street, Jackson street and Bridge street At one time there were eleven streams playing at once. Despite this abondance of water, how ev.*r, tiie firemen HAD A HARD FIGHT. The basement of the stable, where the fire ia supposed to have originated, was filled with hay and other inflammable ma terials. These not only horned like tin der, bnt made a fire hot as a blast from Plato's regions, that roared npward through every avenue that afforded a draft and prodnoed volumes of dense smoke. In the face of snch obstacles, and considering the fact that the fire had gained tremendous headway, it was uphill work for the firemen. The flames spread with lightning rapid ity, and it waa an hoar before they were brought ander control. The firs laddies stood by their task manfully, however, pouring water on the devouring element wherever they con Id reach the flames. From the front, rear, sides and roofs of ad joining buildings they kept np their aque ons fusilade npon the common enemy and at last forced a surrender.. They were at length masters of the situation, but not nntil nothing bnt the brick and stone walls of the stable were left standing and the buildings on either side were considerably damaged by the flames. But their good work cannot be too highly commended. They practically confined the fire to one building and saved a quantity of valuable property. Fortunately there was no wind, else the damage might have been increased. A valuable factor in the fight, and one without which no such victory would have been gained, were THE NEW WATER WORKS. The number of streams thus afforded, and the pressure each bad, alone made it pos sible for the firemen to attain the good re sults achieved. It was a severe, though none the less satisfactory, test of the new works, and oar people have abundant rea son to congratulate themselves over the fact. The slacking np of the streams, notioed when the fire was nearly ont, and which gave rise to the report that the water had given oat, was due to the ex haustion of the reservoir. When the fire department commenced throwing water there was not an inch of water in the res ervoir. Yesterday the company drained the reservoir completely ia order to patch up a leak in the bottom. At the begin ning of the fire the pipes all over the city were fall and this, with the direct pres sure from the pnmp, threw a very good stream. But nine streams at once proved too mnch for the pnmp to keep up the pressure and, as a consequence, the streams slackened after a time. Had the reservoir been fall there would bave been no snch trouble. Still the pnmp did all that was required of it and more than was expected. Had the company been notified in time, the town supply coaid have been cut oft' and all the water concentrated on Main Btreet. The report that the water gave out was all "bosh." Afier pnmping steadily at fall capacity for over five hours, the engineer at the pnmping works rep< rt d that the water in the well had net dropped eight inches since laet night and was still nine feet above the bottom. The Woolston water works proved a bonanza last night, and but for them we might to day be bewailing the lo s of a whole block of onr business houses. They saved the city thousands of dollars. THE RESULTS DISCLOSED. When the fire had been practically extin guished and the smoke dissipated the peo ple began the work of ascertaining results. Everyone's first thought was of the men who had been asleep in the barn. Four of these tnrned up safe and sound, having made their escape in time. They were awakened by the barking of a dog that slept in the barn, and lost no time in get ting out. One man, however, of their □umber, WAS BURNED TO DEATH. His charred body was found near stall in the basement, burned terribly in the extremities and be grimed with smoke and soot. The body was lyiDg on its back, with lace tnrned upwards and arms stretched oat. It is supposed the unfortunate man was trying to escape tbrongh the horses' quarters, when he was overcome by the smoke and suffocated. He no donbt died before the flames reached him. The fall name of the unfortunate is not known. He was only engaged by Mr. Zeigler a short time ago and went by the name of Jack. Coroner Morris will bold an inqnest on the remains to-morrow morning at half past ten o'clock A MAN MISSING. A yonng man named Yelton, who was yard man at Crahan's restaurant, a tew doors below the burned district, is still un accounted for. He slept in a room over the stable, and it is feared be perished in the flames, though no trace of his body has been discovered. WHAT BURNED. Ry. Zeigler's stable was a huge building, forty-five feet front on Main street, two stones high and over 200 feet deep, run ning clear back to Clore street. The front part was of brick, with stone side walls, and the rear portion entirely of stone. The two-story part was owned by the Helena Building Association, consisting of A. G. Clarke, Sr., Henry Klein, Nick Kessler, John Shober and other citizens. It cost $12,000 and is almost a total loss, the walls only remaining. It was not insured. The stone addition in the rear was owned by Mr. Zeigler and is a total loss, except the walls. Mr. Zeigler estimates his loss on the building and stock at $18,000. His in surance is $3,000. His establishment was well stocked and nothing was saved. His loss includes thirty-four horses, forty or forty-five vehicles, harness, etc, «nd $700 worth of feed. In the stable were Jacob Ynnd's pawn shop and Thurman & Purcell's saloon, known as the Health Office—the former on the sonth and the latter on the north side of th« entrance. Ynnd removed part of bis stock, bat with what was burned and what was damaged in handling, be places his loss at $1.000. No insurance. Thur man & Purcell lost all their stock and fix tures, amounting to about $800. They were not insured. The Central Beer Hall, kept by Foge & Diekman, which adjoins the stable on the south, was partially burned in the roof and rear walls, besides being damaged by water. The proprietors removed nearly all their goods safely, including $2,000 worth of liquors. Their fixtures were damaged to the extent of $1,000. No insurance. Finlay Urqnbart kept a lodging honse np stairs in this building, bat removed his fifty beds and other fnrnitnre, without suffering mach damage. Two hundred dollars will cover his loss. He was not insured. The build ing was owned by the John H. Ming estate. It burned ont a little over a year ago and man perished in that fire. It was soon after repaired, only to suffer again this morning. The roof and rear walls of the Eldorado saloon, kept by Crosby & Fisher and owned by Beveridge, were partially burned, bnt the stock was safely removed. The only loss will be the damage to the build ing, which will not exceed a few hundred dollars. THE HORSE HOLOCAUST. For destruction of animal life the fire was unprecedented in Helena. When the fire broke oat there were forty-five bead of horses in the barn and corral. The five in the corral and two in the barn were saved, bnt all the rest perished. The sight pre sented by the horse quarters after the fire was sickening and repulsive. Charred car cases of horses, jritb swolen bodies and protrnding entrails, roasted hams and flesh burned to a crisp, lay all around—most of them in their stalls where they died. The sufferings of the poor beasts can only be imagined—tied np in stalls and compelled to stand nntil they were burned to death. Their loathsome carcases sent np the stench of burned and roasted flesh, whole the sight of their charred legs and bared sknlls was sickening to behold. Thirty thre eof the noble hauts perished in this manner. They were all in good condition and their loss is most deplorable. YELTON TURNS UP. Since the above was written yonng Yelton, the missing man who was thought to have perished, has tnrned np all right. He slept at the depot last night and knew or 2d In ual the not to ate nothing of the fire nntil he came np town this morning. LOSSES AND INSURANCE. For the amonnt of losses, the insurance on the property burned was nnnsnally small. Ry. Zeigler had $1,000 with Ellis & Co.'s agency on his stock, and $1,000 in another agenev on the building. Clarke et al, the owners of the main bnilding, were, we believe, nninsnred. The total loss at this fire will approximate $30,000 and $3,000 insurance is all that can be shown for it. The owners and occupants •f the bnilding thought it absolutely fire proof and never anticipated such a calam ity as overtook them to-day. LARGE INSURANCE. Per contra, the proprietors of the Chi cago Clothing House met with slight loss compared to their insurance. Their stock, which consists of clothing and men's fur nishing goods, was insured for $18,000, as follows: WITH WALLACE A- THOKKBVRGH. ...... 81,000 ....... l'uoo ...... l'ooo ...... 1.000 ....... 1,000 ...... 1,000 ........ 1,000 WITH H. W. FOOTE. ...... 81,000 ...... 4'000 Commercial Union............................... ....... 3,000 J. W. Kinsley, adjuster for the insurance companies, is in charge of the store and is having the damaged goods removed and dried, preparatory to appraising the losses, TO DAY AT THE SCENE. All day long the scene of the stable fire has been resorted to by hundreds of people, anxions to see the work of destruction wrought by the fiâmes. The blackened rnins present very few objects of interest, except the dead horses, which are viewed with cariosity by the crowd. This after noon attempts were made to clear away the debris, bnt the work bas not progressed very far. Some of the horse carcases have been carted away, and tbe balance will be disposed of as soon as possible. Reports have been in circulation that several more bodies had ht en recovered, bnt up to the hour of gönnt to press the explorations had failed to disclose another corpse. The body found early this morn ing is the only one recovered, and tbe probability is that it will prove the only instance of loss of life. THAT WATER SUPPLY. Affidavits of the Water Works Engin eer and the Fire Marshal on the Subject. Territory of Montana, Connry of Lewis and Clarke— S. S. M. O. Reese being first duly sworn, de poses and says : That he is the engineer in charge of the engine house of the Helena "Water Com pany. That at 6 o'clock p. m., June 1, 1888, there were nine feet and eight inches of water in the company well, according to actual measurement taken by me at that time, and at 6 o'clock this morning, Jure 2, after pumping all night there was by actual measurement nine feet and four inches of water still in the well. That during the time of thefire last evening the engine of the company was in active oper ation, running at tbe rate of thirty revolu tions to tbe minute, and continued so dur ing the entire time of tbe fire, being nearly the full capacity of the same. As for the statement that some make, "that the engines were pumping air in stead of water," I will say that it is utterly false as the engines will not ran when pnmping air, and it is impossible for any air to get in tbe pipes when there is any water in the well. That in regard to the lessening of press ure at the fire, is acceunted lor for tbe reason that it is impossible for the one engine to famish snch a quantity of water as was nsed last evening, it beir.g beyond the capacity of the pump and not for want of water at the well.

Editor Herald : I wish to state for the benefit of the public that the water from tbe nine streams came direct from the pnmp, there being no water in the reservoir at the time of the fire yesterday morning. I discovered a defect in the res ervoir and ordered tbe engineer to drop his pressure down, in order to let the water ont of the reservoir to repair said defect, and besides supplying the nine streams on the fire, we were at tbe same time snpplv ing over five hundred houses with water. "When yovr fire department is tnoionghly organized in connection with onr works, onr system is arranged so that we can shat the water off from two-thirds of the city and furnish it all through the balance, making a supply that can never give out.
