T. H. Kleicschmidt, who returned from
a fishing exclusion with his family yester
day, says they witnessed the meteoric phe
nomenon last Sunday. They were camped
on the Little Blackfoot between Avon and
Ellistou and saw the meteor at twenty
minutes patt six o'clock Snnday evening.
Mr. Kleiusehmidt says it looked so close
that he involuntarily ducked his head
when he first saw it, fearing it would
stiikehim. It appeared like a ball of fire
with a comet like tail and was a lurid red.
It traveled eastward and was plainly vis
ible between the camp and the mountains,
where it burst and disappeared without
noise, leaving a cloud of smoke or trail of
vapor marking it path, which was visible
lor several minutes after the meteor disap
peared. Mr. Kleineehmidt says it was a
grand sight, which he would not have
missed lor a hundred dollars.

The Races Becoming About the Only
Feature of Our Annual Exhibition.
"It wasn't much of a fair," said a St.
Paul gentleman to a friend yesterday after
coming back from tha races ; and we are
inclined to thick that his verdict will be
concurred in by all who have visited "the
fair - ' this week. For several years the ex
hibits have been growing "small be degrees
and beautifully less," until now there are
hardly half enough articles on exhibition
to take all the premiums offered. The la
d es department
holds its own better than almost any
other, yet even this is below the standard
of former years. But the interest is lack
ing which formerly promp-ted the ladies to
vie with each other in getting out attrac
tive displays, and few or none of our busi
ness houses, who could make fine exhibits
if they desired, are represented. There a:e
a few fine displays of fancy needle work,
some drawings and paintings and other
productions of home talent, but the ball is
scarcely tilled, and there is apparently lit
tle interest taken iu the exhibit.
The same ( state of affairs ob
tains in the agricultural, me
chanical and stock departments,
when the spaces allotted to exhibitors lack
greatly of beiDg filled up. The agricul
tural display is confined to a few potatoes,
squashes, turnips, cabbages and grain sacks,
distributed along one table in the grouud
door apartment and of minerals there is
nothing at all. It is too early for the
farmers to come to the front and either the
fair association or our mining men lack
the enterprise to secure the fine exhibit of
ores, which the immediate vicinity of Hel
ena can famish.
In live stock also there are scarcely
enough animals present to take the prizes
offered and no competition at all.
Stables that in former yearn were
overcrowded are this year mglected and
tenantlesa. In the poultry room it is
about the same, and hardly a half dozen
of the long line of coops are occupied. All
of which leads one to remark that the fair
teems to have gone by the boaid and de
teriorated in exactly the ratio in which
the races have become better. There is no
gainsaying the fact that we have the
finest races in the Northwest, and the
public are glad of it, yet it is with regret
that we see them growing better at the
expense of the exposition features of the
annual meetings. There is a widespread
opinion that the races and the lair saould
be divorce! and made separate features ot
the Association. Certainly some steps
should he taken before another year to
resuscitate the Hogging interest in our fairs
and infuse Dew vigor intoexhibitors. Th U
such a display as is now cn exhibition
should lie called a "Territorial Fair" is a
travesty upon our resources and a slur on
the good name of Montana.
Close of the First Annual Militia En
campment—The Ball.
The militia boys are happy to-day and
are turning their faces homeward, whist
ling "When I first put this uniform on,
etc,'' or puckering their lips to the tune of
"Wh' Q Johnny Gomes Alarching Home "
For me encampment is at an end and the
sword once more gives place to the toga.
Three companies were dismissed last night
aud this morning tin falauce broke camp
and returned to civilian walks of life. The
encampment has been a great success aud
officers aud men have every reason to he sat
isfied with their first Territorial turnout.
Ye-terday aJternoon the Governor and
staff reviewed the troops in camp and dress
parade was witnessed by a large crowd of
In the evening the hoys in bine and
gray tame up to the city to attend the
dance given in honor of the visit
ing militia by the three local
companies, Capitol Guards, Meagher
Guards and Helena Light Ardilery. The
ball was given in Armory Hall on Edwards
sireet and proved a most enjoyable affiiir.
The large hall was brilliantly lighted and
the lloor in excellent condition for dancing.
The various committees left nothing uu
done and their efforts were crowned with
complete success. The militia attended in
full force, attired in their showy uniforms,
which, mingling y'ith the brilliant
costumes of the lair ladies iu at
teudauce, made the dance cue
of the most glittering spectacles ever
seen in a Helena ball room. The First
avalry band discoursed the music in its
most finished style and the "sound of rev
elry by night" encroached upon several of
the early morning hours, when the guy
party broke up and the guest withdrew
from the festive scene. It was a fitting
lose to the militia encampment and re
flects great credit upon its promoters, the
local companies, who did all in their power
to entertain their brethren in arms.
Away Back.
A visitor in town is W. M. Sprague, who
was one of the Last Chance campers
1864. In '65 6-7 he built many of the Macki
uaw boats that during those years afforded
transportation by river to America. He
also, with Johnny Kennedy, built the stage
stations of the early days used by Wells,
Fargo & Co. between Helena and Benton.
He was one of those present at the Ken
nedy ranch, Prickly Pear canyon, when it
was a.tacked by hostile Indians and as
sisted with his good rille in the protection
of Airs. William Kennedy and children.
Air. Sprague, during the paît twenty years,
has been much of the time a resident of
An Early Timer.
A heartily welcomed caller on the Her
ald people to day was G. J. Wickham,
one of the original "expeditioners ' by the
northers route to Montana, he having ac
companied Capt. James L. Fisk from Alin
nesota to the mountains in 1862. Hon.
James Fergus was another of the over
land party of that year, whom Mr. Wick
ham has had the pleasure of meeting here
the present week. The preceding visit ol
Air. W. io Helena was ten years ago, since
when the city has grown beyond recogni
tion. Air. Wickham is a prosperous ranch
man and stock grower of Jefferson valley,
Madison county.

A Representative in Helena to Estab
lish the Latitude and Longitude.
For a few days past people have been
wondering what was meant by the con
struction of a biick pillar and the erection
of a shed tent in the Assay Office yard.
Inquiry develops the fact that the straDge
feature in the hitherto unspotted lawn is
the establishment of Mr. R. A. Marr, of
the U. S. coast and geodetic survey, who is
here for the purpose of establishing scien
tifically the latitude and longitude of
Helena. As is generally known, the gov
ernment has been for years pursuing a
system of astronomical observations in the
United States and connecting various points
in the country by asystemof triangulation.
This has been extended through the cen
tral part of the country until both sea
boards have been connected, and this sum
mer they are operating in the northern
part of the Union. Helena is at the east
ern apex of a triangle that has for its
southern and western corners respectively
Salt^Lake and Walla Walla. It is
for the purpose of connecting these
points that Professor Alarr is now in
Helena. His associate is in Walla Walla
and they sre both in telegraphic commu
nication, Alarr having a wire that runB
right into his tent in the assay office yard
By means of the telegraph and a fine system
of chronométrie calculation they are both
enabled to take observations at exactly the
same second of ime.
A call upon Mr. Marr this morniDg
found him in his tent preparing his appar
atus for this eveniDgs observations. He
has a large transit, prepared especially lor
such work and made at the government
works in Washington, mounted on iron
uprights resting on a foundation of brick
and cement that reaches to bed rock. Th
telescope weighs 1U0 pounds and has
magnifying power of about one hundred
times. At is adjusted with marvelous
nicety and is capable of the greatest accu
racy compatible with nineteenth century
mechanism. This is connected electrical
ly with a chronograph which marks every
second of time and by means of which ob
servations can be recorded io the hue
dredth part of a second.
Mr. Alarr and his associate at Walla
Waila will take simultaneous obervations
of twenty stars for four nights, and by this
means ascertain the exact time and aim
determine the logitude as near as practical
science can now demonstrate. Owing
the clouds no observations could be taktn
last night, but to-night, weather being
favorable, Mr. Marr will begin his work
After that is done he will set np hismerid
îan transit and take latitude and magneto
observation. In order to correct what
slight errors may occur, Mr. Alarr and his
colleague at Walla Walla will each take
four observations at their respective point
aud then change stations and take four
more, equating whatever differences may

and rodman, "in order to forward the work
of letting the contracts tor sewerage.
The following resolution was offered:
"That the city use no more water for mu
nicipal and fire purposes from the pipes,

the purpose of carrying into effect this
resolution the city clerk is hereby directed

ployees of the city that no turther water
is to be used from said companies' and
persons' mains, and that they and each of
them are directed not to use any of the
hydrants belonging to either of said com
panies or persons.
Harrison offered an amendment prefac
ing the resolution with the following
words: "That until the legal status of
the question he decided by the court of
last resort, the city use no more water,

which Liesner opposed such action, the
amendment was adopted and the resolu

The Coming Contests of Oarsmen on
the Waters of Great Salt
Salt Lake, August 25.— [Special to the
Herald.]— The great regatta that is to he
held here on the 30th and 31st of August is
the all-absorbing topic of interest and con
versation. The noted clubs from the Mis
sissippi Valley Rowing Association will
contest for the medals offered by the citi
zens of Salt Lake City, and the fact that
for the first time in the history of the
great salted sea of the Rock Mountains,
the light modeled shell will be seen on its
surface, propelled by the brawny arms of
champion scullers of Ameiica, already
give the occasion an anticipated interest of
greater magnitude than any event that hrs
excited the denizens of the Saintly City.
The problem will be worked out as to
where the quickest time can be made,
whether on the densest water in the world
save that of the Dead Sea, or on the fresh
water lakes. It is claimed that the buoy
ancy of the waters of Salt Lake, which
are fif»e.-n per cent, sôiid matter, or more
than four times as dense as the oceaD, and
the resisteDce to the stroke of the oar, will
give a speed to the shell craft wholly nn
known to aquatic sports. Of course there
will be big money put up on the time that
that will be made by the famous
oarsmen who will be here
members of the Farragut and Delaware
clubs, of Chicago, the Sylvans, of Moline
111 , the Alodocs, of St. Louis, the Lurlines
of Alinneapolis, and the Owamonongs, of
Michigan. Between twenty acd thirty of
the crack oarsmen in the United .States
will participate in the regatta and use over
a dozen four-cared, double, and single
skulls. The railroads will bring in thou
sands of visitors from Denver, I'ueblo.
Wyoming. Idaho and Utah on liberal ex
cursion rates. Tbe city is all agog now
and great preparations are bring made for
the entertainment of the visitors who will
he here to witness the regatta.
Verdict of the Coroner's Jury in the
McCormick-Gordon Shoot
ing Affray.
On .Sunday last an affray at Osborne
Idaho, (Coeur d' Alene) resulted iu the
shooting of James Gordon by John McCor

answer. Before the coroner's jury on
Tuesday a number of witnesses—among
which were A'ex. Alayhew and W. If
Clagttt—gave their testimony, all going to
justify the shooting. The jury retired and
n fifteen minutes found the following
We, tbe jury, at an inquisition held at

Big Wheat Yields in Minnesota and
Sx. Fall, August 25. —The crop reports
to the Pioneer Pres» do not materially
modify the favorable forecast of last week.
Harvesting is under way along the lines of
the Northern Pacific and Manitoba, and
tbs weather is clear and has been so for
several days. The predictions in regard to
an abundant yield are verified. Chamber
lain, Dakota, reports the largest crop ever
known in that county, ranging from 19 to
30 bushels per acre. Reports in regard to
frosted wheat are contradictory. In the
Devil's Lake district 50 per cent, of the crop
is said to he affected. The damage in most
cases is to isolated fields aud in mixing
could be avoided and the aggregate of
frosted wheat would be small. The week
ly cr»^p report of the Northern Pacific
Railroad says: It is thought that the frost
did not affect the yield materially. It
seems to have been confined to certain
spots. Frost appears to have been most
severe and most disastrous in
northern Minnesota and eastern
Dakota. The weather of late has
been all tlat could be desired. While esti
mates vary, it would appear that the wheat
yield will average about eighteen bushels
to the acre and that the crop of cats will
be exceptionally fine.
