GREAT FALLS.
Repubücan Omens All Good— De
pressed Democrats—The Clark
Case Stirred Up.
Great Falls, October 25.—[Special to
the Herald]—The Repnblicans of Cascade
are entirely satisfied with thepolitical pros
pects as developed by visits to all parts of
the lonnty, and that victory awaits the
party at the November polls in the issues
presented is sure. Comparatively few of
the Democrats are pleased with the head
of the ticket and the signs are that he is
going to be vigorously scratched with the
lesser Democratic lights who are candi
dates before the people.
The Leader is out with the Clark-Kogers
case which produces here a decided sensa
tion, and Democrats admit it is a hard
blow to.the candidate.
The Helena public will Lake little
stock in the Democratic specials
wired from here when they understand
thaï Mr.Clark's hired man O'Dwyer, of the
Tribune, is the author of one and all of
the Munchausen dispatches sent to the
Independent. No stock is taken in them
here.
Preparations are being made for a grand
rally of the Republicans of Great Falls on
next Wednesday night.
LAND SURVEYS.
Embarrassing Result of the Niggardly
Policy of the Democratic
House.
The whole West and Northwest
treated meanly by Holman and the Demo
cratic majority of the House at the session
of Congress recently closed with respect to
public surveys. To the credit of the pres
ent land commissioner, the successor of the
narrow-gauged and contemptible Sparks,
be it said that he made a strong appeal iu
his last annual report for tbe necessary
appropriations to carry for warn the much
needed and long-delayed surveys, but Hol
man and his committee were obdurate and
refuse relief. Said the commissioner in
urging action upon the part of Congress:
*T call attention to the provisions of the
act of March 3, 1887, peremptorily requir
ing the adjustment of all unadjusted rail
road grants. But the lands along the lines
of the largest of these grants are unsur
veyed, and no adjustment can be made
until the surveys are extended. Thus the
grants to the Northern Pacific, the Oregon
«Sc California, the California & Oregon, the
Southern Pacific and the Atlantic & Paci
fic cannot be fully adjusted until the lands
within both the granted and indemnity
limits are surveyed, while the grants to the
Union Pacific, the Central Pacific and the
Kansas Pacific cannot be finally closed
until additional surveys are made defining
their grants. A very important reason for
urging the completion of the surveys of
lands included in railroad grants is the fact
that the department is helpless to to pre
vent depredations on the public timber on
nnsurveyed lands within the limits of rail
road grants. Some of our most important
suits have failed for the reason that the
land was unsurveyed."
Holman and other Democrats were very
officious in the Forty-ninth Congress in
securing the passage of the act above men
tioned, and they have shown their consis
tency by continually refusing to supply
the commissioner with the means of secur
ing surveys necessary to make these adjust
ments.

The Wickes Tunnel.
The first passenger train to pass through
the Wickes tunnel ou the Montana Ceu
tral was the excursion train to the Boulder
barbecue yesterday. The passage con
sumed just twelve minutes, and was made
without inconvenience to thoee on the
train. Tbe time will probably be reduced
to seven or eight minutes when tbe fast
passenger trains are put on. which will be
running by the 10th of November.
The opening of this tnnnel marks the
completion of one of the most gigantic
pieces of railroad work in the Northwest.
The tunnel is in the neighborhood of 6,200
feet long—nearly a mile and a
qnarter throngh the solid rock
of a big mountain of the Boulder range.
Tbe entrance on this side is in the gnlch
about a mile above Wickes and the portals
at the other end open at the sonth bound
ary of the great Boulder valley. Work
was begun on the tnnnel in May, 1887, and
daylight was let through it in September,
1888. It was constructed by Larson,
Keefe & Co., and is said to have coat $1,
500,000. For rapid and excellent work the
contractors are entitled to mnch credit, no
leas than for carrying successfully through
to completion such a mammoth undertak
ing, which is a triumph of engineering

Gabaner & Yergy 's Mill and A. J. David
son's Harness House Burned this
Morning.
Valuable Stocks and Valuable Buildings
Swell the Loss.
Origin of the Fire Unkown—Attributed
to a Tramp Sleeping in the Plan
ing Mill
Shortly after 5 o'clock this morning,
while the people of Helena were lost in
slumber and the city was shrouded in in
tense darkness, a fire broke out in the
planing mill of Gebauer & Yergy on North
Main street just this side of Helena avenue.
How it started is a mystery, but the
theory is that a tramp, who had sought
free lodging iu the mill duriug the night,
had dropped a match in a pile of shavings
on getting up this morning. Either that,
or a spark from the chimney of a neigh
boring honse must have been blown by
the wind into the pile of combustibles near
the planing machine and
STARTED THE FIRE.
At all events, tbe flames, once started
amid the tinder that littered the floor of
the planing mill, Bpread with great rapid
ity, fanned as they were by a violent wind
from the West which had blown great
guns all night. Soon the building was en
veloped in fire and the blaze Bhot up into
the air, illnminating the scene for blocks
around. The fire bell rang oat the alarm
at half-past 5, about five minutes after the
blaze was discovered by those sleeping
near the place, and the department re
sponded promptly. Meanwhile the vicin
ity of the fire was enlivened by near resi
dents, who rushed from their couches
when the blaze was discovered. Hugh
O'Neill, Samuel Davidheuser and Reed
Shannon were asleep in the office of the
planing mill when the fire broke out and
escaped with their lives by
JUMPING THROUGH THE WINDOWS,
leaving their personal effects and the fur
niture and contents of the office at the
mercy of the liâmes. O'Neill was literally
chased out of bed by the fire and got one
of his hands severely burned iu making
his escape. The mill building, with the
exception of a stone engine room on th
sonth end, was of frame and filled wit
seasoned lumber. It burned like a flash
and ten minutes after the fire was discov
ered the whole plant was a mass of flames.
The firemen left the engine at the station,
relying on the pressure from the Woolston
hydrants, from which three streams were
soon obtained. When the firemen got
water on the flames, the planing mill was
beyond hope of saving. The strong wind
blew the flames across the street and made
such
A TERRIBLE HEAT
that the firemen could scarcely retain their
positions in front of the burning mass.
Seeing that the mill could not be saved,
they at once turned their attention to the
surrounding bnildings. Across the street
the old Knights of Labor Hall, owned
by Fred. Lehman, and occupied
by A. J. Davidson as a saddlery
and harness store, a three-story brick
building, was already suffering from the
heat. Forked Bheets of flame were lick
ing its fire-proof front from cornice to
enrb-stone, and the window frames and
other exposed woodwork were seen to be
fast igniting. The firemen turned their
streams at once upon this bnilding and did
all in their power to save it, but to no
avail. The pressure of the water would
not at first throw a stream higher than the
second story, though afterwards the force
increased. It was then too late. The
flames had caught the window frames of
the third story, as well as the wooden
staircase, leading thereto, and the heavy
wind forced them right through. B. Ly
man, William Lyman, J. E. Hample and
Peter West, employes of Mr. Davidson,
who slept in the third story of the build
ing, escaped with their lives, but lost all
their personal effects. A few buggies,
about four we believe, were hurriedly
taken ont of the rear door, but everything
else had to be abandoned, snch was the
fary and rapidity with which the fire took
hold of the building. The roof Boon

canght and
FELL IN WITH A CRASH,
where it added new fnel to the
fire already raging among the carriages,
buggies, sleighs and saddles ou the second
floor. By heroic work, however, the fire
laddies soon got the fiâmes under control
and put out the fire in the Davidson bnild
ing, but not before both upper stories were
burned out and the first floor and all its
contents completely drenched with water.
In the meantime tbe blacksmith shop of
Tom Sellars, in a building owned by
John Steinbreuner, about fifty feet south of
Davidson's, had caught fire and, being
a frame building soon succumbed
to the flames. As this was
isolated by vacant lots from
neighboring buildings, the fire here was
easily confined to the shop, which was
totally destroyed.
On the other side of the street two
stables, a lumber pile and a stack of cord
wood adjoining the mill were all ablaze,
and, after squelching the flames on the east
side, the firemen had to face about and
commence another fight near the mill.
Water was plenty and the pressure etroDg
by this time, and the department found no
difficulty in keeping the fire under control.
They fought the fiâmes until eight o'clock,
when they were so far subdued that there
was no farther danger.
An odd feature of the fire was the
BURNING OF TWO STREET CARS,
belonging to the Helena Street Railway
Company, which stood on the track jnst
in front of the flaming mill. Owing to the
sewer work on npper Main street, which
bad torn up the track, the terminas of
the street railroad was jnst at this unfor
tunate point, where the two street cars had
been laid up for the night. Unluckily the
wheels of the cars were locked by a log
chain, and, though willing hands were
ready to Bhove the cars down the track
out of reach of the flames, all efforts in
this direction were powerless and they
were left to their fate. They were soon
wrapped iu flames and burned down to the
trucks.
IIRECK & FISCHER
whose livery stable stands just this side of
the planing mill, did some lively bustliDg
to get their 6tock out of the threatened
building. W ; th expeditious work they
got out every horse, vehicle and piece of
harness just as the sides of their stable
began to scorch. Their labor was vain,
however, as the fire department got the
blaze under control before the flames com
municated with tbe stable. It was a close
call, and with a little less vigorous work
by the firemen tbe big bam would also
have been destroyed.
In a few short hours, however, the fire
had
_WROUGHT TERRIBLE HAVOC.
Of the planing mill and adjoining stables,
nothing was left but a smoking pile of
ruins and the bare stone walls of the en
gine room and smoke stack. A. J. David
son's establishment was a total wreck, the
roof caved in and the whole interior above
the first floor completely gutted. Som
mers' blacksmith shop was leveled to the
ground and of the two street cars nothing
remained bat the wheels and iron work.
WHAT WAS SAVED.
Gebauer & Yergy saved nothing at all,
except their books and some money, which
were in the safe. The safe was kept pret
ty cool by water and it is the ught the con
tents are uninjured. A large amount of
sash, doors, flooring and hard wood was
destroyed, together with all the machin
ery.
A. J. Davidson saved fonr buggies, a few
pieces of harness and what stock there
was in the first floor that is not damaged
by water, which was at one time nearly
six inches deep on the floor of the office.
THE LOSSES
will probably reach $100,000, and, with
the insurance, are hastily estimated as fol

INSURANCE.
The insurance on the burned building
was pretty well distributed among differ
ent companies. On the stock and fixtures
of A. J. Davidson there was $30,000 insur
ance, distributed as follows:
WITH C. F. ELLIS & CO.

Of this amount, $24,500 was ou the stock
of general merchandise, $5,000 on the bug
gies and $500 on store and fixtures.
The building, owned by Fred Lehman,
was insured for $9,000 as follows:
WITH C. F. ELLIS & CO.

Fireman's Fund.......................................... 2,000

Total...................................................89,000
On the machinery and stock of Gebauer
& Yergy, owners of the planing mill, there
was $6,000 insurance. Of this Wallace
& Thornburgh had $2,500, L. F. LaCroix
$500, Walter Matheson $500 and $1,500 in
other agencies.
The insurance on the whole fire amounts
to about $47,000.
Among the losers is Leonard Stein
breuner, who kept a saloon in the Lehman
building next door to A. J. Davidson's. He
estimates his loss at $1,000.
For the amonnt of property destroyed
t was tbe most disastrous fire that has oc
curred in Helena for years. The extent of
the loss is due to tbe violent wind prevail
ing at the time. On a mild night the fire
could easily have been confined to the
planing mill, but the wind was so great
that the firemen found it impossible to
prevent the spread of the flames.
Lack of pressure on the water-mains is also
alleged as one of the causes. The fire sta
tion reports that when the streams were
turned on the pressure was only 18 pounds
to the square inch and that it afterwards
fell to 5 pounds before the man at tbe well
was aroused and got his pumps started—
after which the firemen had all the water
they wanted.

WHERE ARE THEY?
Disappearance and Probable Drown
ing of Two Men.
Two citizens of Helena, Isidore Meyer
and Guillaome Ladure, built a small boat
in this city for a hunting trip on the Mis
souri river, and last Tuesday they started
with their boat on a wagon drawn by two
horses, fully equipped with guns and pro
visions and three dogs. They arrived
safely at Stubb's Ferry, about twelve miles
from Helena tbe same day, and put up
their horses and left their dogs with Mr.
James Lee, the lessee of the Stubbs ranch.
The party carried a sail with them and
it is supposed that after they launched
their boat upon the river they hoisted sail
and were capsized and lost. The persons
are well known by Mr. Ignace Miller, who
is of the opinion that, with too much sail
and little or do acquaintance with the
treacherous Missouri, they have been
drowned. The party were both Belgians.
If nothing is heard of them by this even
ing, Mr. James Lee will come to town and
raise a searching party to ascertain the ab
solute fate of the unfortunate men.
CRAZY AND AT LARGE.
The Wild Character, Poy, Terrorizing
the People of Ten Mile.
An escaped prisoner who is thought to
be crazy is terrorizing the residents along
Ten Mile Creek, about ten miles from
town. His name is Joseph Poy (or Poe)
and among other depredations he has
burned several hay stacks and threatened
the lives of several men. A few days ago
Col. Eads happened to meet the crazy Poy
and asked him how far it was to a certain
place, whereupon Poy drew his revolver
and fired over bis head and said: "Look
for that and yon will find how far it is."
Mr. Priest has kept night watch for two
weeks for the prowling night-bird, and
residents generally are more or less incon
venienced by his threats and misdemean
ors.
Last night Jack Hammond was on the
look out, as several nights his heu roost
has been visited and poultry purloined.
It is time the officers "got on," so to speak,
and ridded the neighborhood of snch a
nuisance.
That "Missing Letter."
Frank P. Sterling, Esq., who returned
this morning from a business trip to Salt
Lake City, was called upon by a Herald
reporter in the matter of the R. B. Smith
statement published iu the Democratic
organ and intended to reflect on the integ
rity of Mr. Carter in the case of a certain
laud filing.
"My attention," said Mr. Sterling, "has
been called to that statement and the so
called 'missing letter.' I have not the
timeju8tat this moment to remind Mr.
Smith as to what became of tbe papers iu
the desert land entry referred to by him,
but I will do so Monday, and tell where
those papers were left by mntaal agree
ment between the attorneys in said case
and the register of the land office."
Rodney Street Line.
The street railway company commenced
operating their Rodney street line to-day.
At least, cars passed down by that ronte to
Helena avenue early this morning. It is
expected the company will now restore
Rodney to its former passable condition.

SWITCHMEN'S STRIKE.
Northern Pacific Yard Men Demand
an Increae of Wages.
The switchmen o the Northern Pacific
railroad in the Helna yards quit work
last evening at six ("clock and went out on
a strike. The reasai of this action is ex
plained by the strikers as follows:
On the 17th of Seitember they wrote to
St. Paul, demandingan increase of wages
to the extent of 25c per day. They have
been receiving $2.25per day, while, they
claim, the switchmm in St. Paul and at
other points are geting $2 50 per day. As
the cost of living is greater here, they felt
justified in making i demand for an in
crease of wages. TLeir petition was re
ferred to A. J. Boric acting superintend
ent at Mis8oala, whe a few days ago trans
mitted the followingreply:
Mbsoula, October 24.
Subject : Petitioi of switchmen at
Helena.
To G. W. Duncan, Yard Master, Helena,
M. T.:
Dear Sir :—Answering the petition of
your switchmen for increase of pay, would
say that we are not n the position to in
crease salaries. We are paying as much
and, in some instances, more, than is being
paid at the majority of points along the
road. I will do what I can to bring about
a more satisfactory arrangement for all
concerned, and while I do not hope for im
mediate success, I thirk it can be brought
about iu time. In the meantime, men who
are dissatisfied or know where they can
better themselves, alwajs have the privilege
of leaving the compauj's service.
Yocrs truly,
A. J. Boris, Act Snpt.
When the contents of ihis letter were made
known, the switchmen determined to
strike, and last nigkt quit work at 6
o'clock. All the freight that has come in
since then, or at least ihe greater part of
it, is at a stand still in the Helena yards.
So far there are 250 loaded cars stalled
here. The company have dis
charged three conductors for re
fusing to do the necessary switching
work. One conductor, named Smith, with
two green hands, is attempting to move
the freight. To-day at the request of the
company Mayor Fuller ordered a squad of
police down to the depot; but they found
everything orderly. The men,to the num
ber of 25, have knocked off work, but are
conducting themselves in a peaceable, or
derly manner. There is no probability of
a compromise to-day, though it is thought
an agreement will soon be reached between
the strikers and and the company. No
violence is apprehended.
AFTER TWISTY YEARS.
Seeking the Last Resting Place of an
Early Day Settler Killed by
Hostiles.
William Scott, of the real estate and
loan firm of Scott & Gage, Chicago, is a
guest in the city, and this morning called
on the senior ol the Herald firm to learn,
if possible, the resting place of a deceased
brother, Charles L. Scott, whose remains
found interment here twenty years ago.
Charles L. Scott crossed the plains from
Minnesota to Montana iu the Holmes ex
pedition iu 1866, and within a year after
located a ranch on the Dearborn river, and
occupied it with a brother. In February,
1868, the Scott brothers, in their cabin,
were attacked by hostile Indians, and
Charles was killed, the other brother escap
ing by the good nse of his
trusty rifle. The body of the slain
settler was brought to Helena on
ODe of the daily plying stage coaches and
C. R. Stuart, then connected with the Her
ald, and others of onr citizens attended
the bnrial of the remains in the city ceme
tery. Subsequently the body, with others,
was removed to the present cemetery, the
grave being marked by a headstone sent
out by the Chicago brother, William. The
Herald of February 12, 1868, contained a
full account of the Indian raid of that
month and the killing of Charles R. Scott,
and this moraing Wm. Scott, our visitor,
drew from his pocket a well preserved slip
taken from the Herald of that date, (a
complete half column report of the trag
edy,) which he has kept intact for the past
twenty years. This afternoon, Wm. Scott,
accompanied by Col. W. F. Wheeler, is out
in the cemetery seeking the location of his
brother's grave.
LOG CABIN LOGIC
Brawn and Brain !
The powerful engine, with its wonder
ful propelling j>ower, coupled to the long
train full freighted with the richest fabrics
of the intellectual looms of the centuries
— whatobstacles can stay the progress of
this mighty force, when once under full
steam along life's highway.
The American with brawn and brain
does r*)t see the necessity for titles of
nobility, does not care for elevation by
descent, he can reach out and pluck the
stars.
But with brawn and brain impaired, a
man is badly handicapped in tbe mad
race for success which is tfie marked
characteristic of the present age.
The physicial system is a most intri
cate piece of machinery. It ought to be
kept well regulated, so that it will work
harmoniously in all its parts, then it is
capable of an immense amount of work.
It is said that a watch, if expected to
keep perfect time, must be wound daily.
It will not keep good time unless it "runs
regular." More men break down because
they don't''run regular" than for any
other reason.
It is claimed by physicians that few
men are killed by hard work. It is to
the {irregularities of modern social life
that the high death rate is due. Men
burn their candle at both ends, then
wonder why it burns out so quickly.
The main thing in keeping the
human machine in good working order
is to keep the regulator all right.

If I had known of the Cvticcra Remedies
twenty-eight years ago it would have saved me

amount of suffering. My disease (Psoriasis)
commenced on my head in a spot not larger
than a cent. It spread rapidly all over my body

off of me all the time, and my suffering was
endless, and without relief. One thousand dol

was leprosy, some ring-worm, psoriasis, etc. I

and a half, but no cure. 1 went to two or three
doctors and no cure. I cannot praise the Ci ti

here and said you would have cured me for
8200.00 you would have had the money. I looked
like the picture in your book of Psoriasis (pic
ture number two, "How to Cure Skin Diseases")
but now I am as clear as any person ever was,
Through force of habit 1 rub my hands over my
arms and legs to scratch once In a while, but to
no purpose. I am all well. I scratched twenty
eight years, tnd it got to be a kind of second
nature to me. I thank you a thousand times.
Anything more that you want to know write, or
any one who reads this may write to me and
will answer it.

Sneezing Catarrh.
The distressing sneeze, sneeze, sneeze, the
acrid, watery dischargee from the eyes and nose,
the painful inflammation extending tothe throat
the swelling of the mucous lining, causing cbok
ing sensations, cough, ringing noises in the head
and splitting headaches,—how familiar these
symptoms are to thousanIs who suffer period!
call y from head colds or Influenza, and who live
in ignorance of the fact that a single application
of Sanford's Radical Cure for Catarrh will
afford instantaneous relief.
But this treatmc' t in cases of simple Catarrh
gives but a faint i'l-a of what this remedy will
do in the chronic i..rms, where tbe breathing is
obstructed by ch. ing, putrid mucous securnu
lations, the lie-iing affected, smell and taste
gone, throat uV- rated and hacking cough gradu
ally fastening tt-elf upon the debilitated system
Then it is tliat the marvellous curative power of
Sanford's I adical Cure manifests itself in in
stantaneous and grateful relief. Cure begins
from the l ist application. It Ls rapid, radical
permanH t, economical, safe.
Sanford s Radical Cure consists of one bot
tle of th« radical Cure, one box Catarrhal
Solvent and an Improved Inhaler; price, 81.

Democrats Asking Odds.
New Yobk, Special Telegram, Oct. 19.—
There was more excitement over politics
to-day at the produce exchange than was
developed bv wheat speculation, and the
feeliDg was evidently bullish on the Re
publican side. During the morning there
was betting iu small amounts going on all
over the floor, but the climax was reached
when G. K. Clark; a large grain speculator
and the representative of "Old Hutch" of
Chicago, announced in the west pit that he
was prepared to bet $25,000 even that
Harrison would be the next President.
There were no takers among the Democrats
and Mr. Clark said he would bet any part
of $25,000 to suit takers, but got no re
sponse. Telegrams were sent to the stock
exchange, the Hoffman House aud the
Democratic headquarters, but up to the
close of business at the exchange no Demo
crat had offered to take the proffered bet
Frederick Goldsmith, another grain broker'
placed several bets of $100 each that
Cleveland will not carry this State. Both
brokers express their willingness to keep
the same beta open for acceptance. It is
now almost impossible to get a Democrat
to take a bet at evea money on the general
result of the election. Even the book
makers are becoming frightened and ask
for odds on the general result.
