Henry Aggens. a Ranchman of the Val
ley. Knocked Into Eternity by a
Construction Train.
The Accident Happens at the Dangerous
Cut on the Northern Pacific Near
Sanford & Evans' Mill.
About twenty minutes past four o'clock
yesterday afternoon Henry Aggens,
farmer of I'rickly Tear Valley, met an in
stant and horrible death on the Northern
Pacific railroad. He had been np. to the
city disposing of a load of produce and
was returning home with his team and
wagon. He drove down Main street and
intended to cross the railroad at Sanford
& Evans' flouring mill At this point the
railroad runs through a deep cut, which
completely hides all trains approaching
from the East. The wagon road crosses
the track just at the end of this cut and in
a very dangerous place. Mr. Aggens drove
right onto the track before he saw the
construction train approaching rapidly
through the cut. He had to either go ahead
or back out and he chose the latter alter
native. Standing up in his wagon he halted
his team and pulled hard to back them
off the track. But it was to late. The
train thundered along over the crossing,
the locomotive
and carrying them along the track for
some distance, where they dropped dead.
The wagon was overturned by the shock and
Mr. was hurled to the ground. In
The wagon was overturned by the shock and
Mr. Aggens was hurled to the ground. In
falling, his head struck the projecting
corner ot a lumber pile and he was in
stantly killed. The skull was cracked by
the concussion and has brains were scat
tered on the ground.
The train was stopped a short distance
beyond and was backed to the place of the
accident, where the crew were horrified
to find that a man and two hor-ea had
been killed. Workmen at tb>- mill and
others hastened to pick up the prostrate
and mangled form of Mr. Aggens, but his
injuries proclaimed that his life had fled
with the first shock.
Coroner Morris was notified of the oc
currence, had the body removed to the
morgue, where
Several witnesses were called and testi
fied as to the manner of the occurrence,
substantially as the accident is described
above. The engineer, fin man and brake
mau of the construction train were among
the witnesses, and testified that the speed
was only about six miles an hour, as
required by yard regulations, the accident
having occurred within the yards;
that the bell had been rang and the
whistle blown before the crossing
was reached. On the other hand witnesses
of the accident testified that they heard no
such warning from either bell or whistle
and that the train seemed to lie running
about 15 miles an an hour and must have
moved a quarter of a mile before it
stopped. Alter hearing Jthis evidence the
coroner's jury adjourned until this morn
ing at 10 o'clock.
Owing to the coroner's absence the in
quest was not resumed until 2 o'clock this
afternoon, and at the time of going to
press no verdict had been rendered.
It is bnt timely comment to state that
the opinion prevails that the Northern Pa
cific have been derelict in their duty tow
ards the public in this matter. The acci
dent occurred within the city limits at the
crossing of the extension of our business
street and at a place which was dangerons
by its very nature. The company had
been repeatedly warned of the dangerous
character of that crossing and had been
petitioned time after time by prominent
business men to abolish it and build a
bridge over the cut, similar to that already
made by the Montana Central just this
side of it. Chinese Emma's garden cart
was once run into there by a train bnt no
great damage resulted. Other accidents
have also taken place at that spot, but
happily until yesterday none had proved
fatal. If the cut had been bridged when
the citizens petitioned for it, Mr. Aggens
would doubtless be alive to-day.
Henry Aggens owned and lived on a
farm in the Prickly Pear valley about six
miles from Helena, where he lived with
His wife and fonr children. He was a
respected cititizen and an Odd
Fellow in good standing and his sudden
death will be a blow to a Urge circle of
The body was taken home this morning,
where it will be prepared for interment.

A Double Help for the Bilious.
In addition to that chief remedial measure—
the use of Hostetter's StomÄch Bittere— persons
suffering from an acute bilious attack, will facili
tate recovery by the use at first of milk and lime
water an 1 thin gruels, and by a very gradual
return to the use of solid foods. Fatty sublUn
ces should be excluded from the diet.
* remedy of doubtful safety, particularly V
there be nausea and vomiting, frequent corfcom

reformatory action lie not retarded and marred
by gross indiscretions in diet, will soon restore
the equilibrium of and action of the liver, stom

every one of its phases presents Indications of

The "Supposed 'Murderer of Anna
Lundstrom Charged With
Murder in the First _
At 11 o'clock this morning the grand
jury came into coart and presented a true
bill against George Dnncan Bryson for the
murder of Anna Lundstrom, alias Bryson,
on or about the 22d day of August, 1888.
The indiotment consists of two counts.
The fi»t charges Bryson witk having
killed the said Anna Lundstrom on the
2id day of August by beating her to death
with stones and rocks. The second count
prefers the charge of marder in the second
degree and holds BryBon responsible for
the murder by "means nnknown to the
The foregoing was the result of the
grand jury's investigation into the noted
Bryson case. They spent yesterday after
noon and the greater part of this morning
in making their examinations, and the re
sult is an indictment such as the com
munity expected. It now only remains
for Bryson to have his trial and pay the
penalty of his crime if he is found guilty.
He will be arraigned at the November
term of court, but his trial will most likely
go over until next spring, as that is under
stood to be the prisoner's desire. Should
his case be appealed it will come before
the supreme court next July, and if he be
found guHty and the verdict confirmed he
will probably swing on the gallows within
eight or ten mouths.
Anna Lundstrom's Trunks Examined
—Her Watch Fojnd at a
The trunks which Bryson had sent to
Butte addressed to Anna Lundstrom and
which were brought back to Helena some
days ago. were opened yesterday by the
grand jury. A lot of clothing hastily
packed was found within and also some
photographs and letters. Nothing partic
ularly reflecting on Bryson was found,
although the marks on the clothing were
sufficient to establish the fact that they
had been the property of Anna
Lundstrom or Anna Bryson. The
marks were the same as those noticed on
the clothes of the body found in the pros
pect hole. The effects will be taken chaige
of by the officers, as they may lead to some
additional developments.
Nothing new has transpired in the case
except the finding of Anna Lundstrom s
watch and a few articles of clothing, which
were pawned at Uncle Sam's (Karatofsky 's»;
loan office by Bryson on the 22d of Au
gust. Mr. Karatolfeky was in Chicago
when the case was first opened, and on his
return, about ten days ago, he ettw the
picture of Bryson in the Herald. Hs at
once recognized in that picture the man
who bad pawned these articles with him
a month previous. To confirm this, he ap
plied to the Sheriff for admission to the
ail and there positively identified Bryson.
He says the man pawned the goods on the
22d of August and gave his name as J. D.
Lnnson. The articles were a gold plated ;
watch and several pieces of cloth
ing. He said Bryson came to him
on the 22d of August and asked
him if he would take such
goods. Kaartofsky told h'm he would
and the next day, August 23d, sent a man
down to get them at Bryson's room
at the Lenoir House. While
there the man asked Bryson what had be
come of his wife, te which Bryson replied
that she had gone away and that he was
going to L ave on the train that day. As
scon as Uncle Sam recognized in the pris
oner, Bryson, the maa who bad pawned
the watch, he at once voluntarily turned
over the goods to the Sheriff' and gave his
testimony before the grand jury. Had
he been at home those developments
would have probably been made sooner,
bat, as he was in Chicago at the time the
sensation occurred, he could not make the
disclosure until he returned.
Another discovery just made by the offi
cers is that the murdered woman, Anna
Lundstrom, has two children living in
—Bryson still claims that he is innocent,
and says he will be acquitted. He has
written to his family in Canada, and ex
pects his father or brother to come to
Montana to assist in his defense.
German Republicans.
Last night the regular meeting of the
German Kepublican Club was held at Har
monia Hall. There was a large attendance
and it proved a most enthnsiastic meeting.
President Fleischer occupied the chair and
made an interesting address on the issues
before the people. Other speeches in the
German language were made by Messrs.
Voss and Mahrt, and Mr. Balliet talked
Republicanism in English. The speakers
acquitted themselves excellently and were
warmly applauded.
A feature of the session was the raffling
of an enormons head of cabbage, which
had been grown in the garden of Aider
man Harrison and presented by that gen
tleman to Mr. T. H. Kleinschmidt for the
German clnb. The sncculent vegetable
was put up at auction and bulled the price
of cabbage heads to $650, for which
sum it was knocked down to
Messrs. Howey and Balliet. The meeting
adjourned at 10:30 o'clock after a profitable
and harmonious session. Next Wednesday
night there will be speeches in Ger'
man by Messrs. Kleinschmidt, Voss,
Fleischer, Mahrt and others and also an
English address by Cel. McCutcheon.
The Herald wishes to congratulate the
German Republicans on the success they
are making of' their club, which has so far
been an important factor in helping ont
demonstrations and in disseminating the
grand doctrines and principles of Republi
canism. That its intelligent discussions of
campaign issues will bring many a stray
sheep to ^ttae fold we have no doubt.
Gnr best wishes are extended for its con
tinuance on the road to success and pros
perity. _ _ _
The First Passenger Elevator.
The hydraulic pressure elevator, in the
Gold Block, was put in operation this
morning and was kept busy for a while
carrying passengers *n trial trips up and
down from the first story to the top of the
building. The elevator is run by water
power with a 140 pounds pressure from
the East Side Water Company's reservoir.
The trial proved a oomplete success, and
the company is to be congratulated as be
ing the prime movers in the first passen
ger elevator that has been put ra operation
in a business block in Helena.
A Herald reporter joined a party of a
half dozen other citizens in a free ride this
morning to the sky roof of the new Gold
Block and down again to earth just a3
A Small Blaze.
Atout half past eleven last night the
shrieking of several locomotive whistles
at the Northern Pacific depot and the sub
sequent ringing of the fire bell announced
a blaze in the Sixth ward. It proved to
be a fire in the new coal 9heds of the rail
road company, which were burned down a
short time age. The department responded
promptly, and extinguished the flames be
fore any considerable damage had been
dene. The origin of the fire is unknown.

Death of a Notable Woman.
Mrs. Chloe Langford the venerable
mother of N. P. Langford, formerly U. S.
Collector for the district of Montana, died
at the home of ex-Governor Marshal, her
son-in-law, at St. Paul, on Sunday last,
aged ninety-four years. Mrs. Langford
was in many respects a remarkable woman.
She was born in Whiteston, Oneida oonnty,
N. Y., May 8,1704. Her life thus covered
nearly the whole existence of the nation.
She was bom during the early part of Gen.
Washington's second term as president,
and distinctly remembered his death,
which occurred almost at the close of the
last centnry, then in her fifth year. Mrs.
Langford remembered perfectly the uni
versal mourning at the time, and other in
cidents connected with the birth of the
century. In August. 1814, she married
Mr. George Langford, a banker of Utica
N. Y. She was the mother of thirteen
children, of whom N. P. Langford, Mrs.
W. R. Marshall, Mrs. W. A. Spencer,
and the late Mrs. J. W. Taylor had their
homes in St. Paul. Mr. Langford's hus
band died in 1853, and since that time she
has made her home with Gov. Marshall.
She was a very intellectual woman, taking
the greatest interest in all the questions
of the day, and being particularly fond of
all scientific and philosophical subjects.
Among the last works which were read to
her, for within a few years her eyesight
had failed partially, were all of Darwin's
writings and the Century's life of Lincoln
which she keenly appreciated. Her life
was a singularly beautiful one, shedding a
radiance on her family aDd circle of friend's.
Mrs. Langford was a devout Christian
woman and took great interest in all
church and religious work.
Death of an Old Timer.
Thomas Nickerson the original discov
erer of the Elkhorn mine and the builder
of the first mill there, died yesterday morn
ing at that place of pneumonia. Mr. Nick
erson was about 58 years of age and a man
of indomitable conrage and enterprise
whose death will be regretted by a large
number of friends. By arrangement he
was the instigator of the Reinig-Merrill
hnnting party that has just returned from
a trip to the Big Baldy mountain, and was
to have acted as the guide and principal of
the hunters but on the day of starting he
was so severely attacked by pneumonia,
that he was compelled to stay behind.
Corner Stone Laid.
The corner stone for the new Methodist
Episcopal church on Broadway was laid
last evening with appropriate ceremonies.
The exercises opened with singing, psalm
reading and prayer, offered by Rev. R. E.
Smith, after which Rev. A. D. Raleigh, the
pastor, announced the contents of
the sealed box deposited in the
stone to wit:
Copies of the Daily Herald, Record
and Independent ; the Bible; a Methodist
Episcopal hymnal; copies of the New York
Christian Advocate and the Montana Advo
cate; a photograph of Helena in early days;
a photograph of the old brick church; a
copy of the "Vigilantes of Montana,"' and a
copy of the Board of Trade's "Helena Illus
tra ted."
The ceremony was conducted by the
Rev. E. P. Snyder, but owing to the failure
of the electric light, leaving the scene in
darkness, the expected addresses from that
gentleman. Governor Leslie and Rev. F. D.
Kelsey were omitted.
The corner stone, a handsome block of
marble, was the gift of A. K. Prescott, the
Helena marble worker.

A Falsehood Disposed Of.
Helena, October 13. —To the Editor
of the Herald.]—In reply to a number
of inquiries that have come to me to-day,
as to the truth or falsehood of a rumor
going the rounds that I had discharged
some thirty or forty of the motor line
workmen on account of political opinions,
I beg to state that so far as the reason al
leged is concerned, it is absolutely false.
I have, however, been compielled to tem
piorarily lay off nearly the entire force on
account of "no work" for them, owing to
the injonction placed npion the construc
tion of the eastern section of the road by
Messrs. Ashby & Horsky.
As soon as the injunction is dissolved,
not only the old men will be put to work
again, bnt the force largely increased until
the completion of the east end of the line.
The iujunctionists are alone responsible for
the workmen being out of employment to
say nothing of the annoyance to the public
and delay and loss to the contractor.

Worthy of Encouragement.
The Chicago Inter Ocean has been in re
ceipt of a considerable number of commun
ications with reference to Helena and Mon
tana as a p>oint for the investment of east
ern capital and in response thereto has del
sgated Mr. D. Leubrie, staff' correspondent
with the responsible duty of preparing an
elaborate illustrated article on Helena and
all its industries and interests. In consid
eration of this valuable publication, no
bonus is asked, but simply a subscription
to the Daily Inter Ocean for a period of six
months. There is no doubt that immigra
tion to Montana and influx of aggressive
eapital can be largely stimulated by such
an article aDd all the interests of this city
augmented by a paper presentation of all
of our manifold advantages as a desirable
point for profitable investments in varions
enterprises. Mr. Lenbrie will call on our
citizens and we bespeak for the Inter Ocean
substantial and liberal encouragement.
Democratic Meeting.
With bandanas flying to the breeze,
flambeaux flaring and fireworks flashing,
the Democrats assembled for an open air
meeting last night at the corner of Broad
way and Jackson streets. The managers
spent a great deal of boodle in trying to
draw a crowd, and Messrs. Connolly, Cnl
len and District Attorney Smith spent
considerable wind in haranguing the as
semblage. Ontside of the pyrotechnics,
which were set off regardless of expense,
the meeting was a very tame affair. The
audience was small, and composed largely
of Republicans, who disconcerted the
speakers by giving good Republican re
sponses to questions evidently designed to
elicit Democratic answers. It was the big
gest fizzle of a political demonstration ever
seen in Helena.

proved exceptionally pleasant.

month with the privilege of a year We
think the army, from what we have heard
of it, will find tiiis a poor place to do busi
ness, and that it will not take it long to
accomplish its work in this field.
—How things do change. Two years
ago Republican employes in federal offices
in Helena were reprimanded for "offensive
partisanship" because they turned out in
Sanders parades. Now the employes in
these same offices are all Democrats and
take an active part in all Democratic
demonstrations without being reprimand
ed therefor. Not only that, but federal
officers themselves are stumping the Terri
tory for Clark and marchiDg in all the
Democratic parades. This must be "in
offensive partisanship!"
