The Leader of a Band in Trouble.
Yesterday tbe Hebald made mention
of the robbeiy of Swend Carlson a show
case, which happened the night before.
The officers kept up a strict watch and
last night discovered a fellow in the act
of selliDK a new pipe. He was at once put
under arrest and while in the lockup was
closely questioned and finally induced to
tell all he knew. He gave the names and
whereabouts of his confederates in the
robbery and two more were arrested this
morniDg. They gave the names of Jaa.
Donelly, Henry Allen and John Burns.
The latter has just been released from a
forty days jail sentence, which he was
serving for a robbery committed in a Main
street saloon.
"When questioned the trio confessed to
having disposed of the stolen pipes to E. G.
Cole, a colored man, who is known here as
the leader of the Colored Band.
Detective Walters procured a search
warrant and with officers Kuntz and La
Rue started out to examine Cole's place on
Clore street. The place is occupied by
questionable characters and the first search
proved fruitless. Cole was then induced to
talk and told the officers there was a con
cealed cellar in the house where the pipes
would be found. A trap door
was opened and with much difficulty
an entrance was effected to the
cleverly arranged hiding place. Besides
the pipes, part of a double set of harness
was discovered, the buckles of which bear
the insigna of Knights Templar.
The officers believe they have discovered
a regular gang of crooks, as Ccle is con
nected in some manner with other houses
of ill repute, search will be made to-day
in all of them. There is a clear case
against all the prisoners, and Cole is said
to have figured as a "fence" for a long
Who Did Wrong?
Last night Detective Walters received a
telegram from Sheriff Hey fron, of Missonla,
instructing him to arrest a boy named
Beecher Moore, who would arrive on the
evening train. Moore has acted as bell
boy at Missoula and formerly at the Cos
mopolitan in this city and returned here
last night to enter again into bis former
position. The charge against him is bur
glary, and when arrested last night the boy
was greatly astonished to be accused of the
crime. He has a good reputation in this
city and Mr. Folk, of ^the Cosmopolitan is
ready to help him in the matter.
At the lockup to-day a Hebald reporter
managed to obtain some statements from
the lx>y, which if true should be taken
into consideration by tbe proper authori
ties and which will require some protec
tion for the lad. It appears that his
mother has left the path of virtue and is
openly living with a man, not legally her
husband. The boy has saved his earnings
and they are on deposit in the Cruse
Savings Bank in the city. The twain
have for some time endeavored to get pos
session of the boy's money and he claims
the arrest is a scheme on their part to
have him returned to Missoula. Sheriff
Hey fron may be able to explain on his
Sot a California Bear.
Anybody can catch a cold this kind of weather.
The trouble is to let go, like the man who caught
the bear. We advice our readers to purchase of
H. M. Pärchen <k Co., a bottle of SANTA ABIE,
the California King of Consumption, Asthma
Bronchitis, Coughs and Croup Cures, and keep
it handy. 'Tis pleasing to the taste and death to
the above coaplaints. Sold at $1.00 a bottle or 3
for 12.50. CALIFORNIA CAT-R-CURE gives
immediate relief. The Catarrhal virus is soon
displaced by its healing and penetrating nature.
Give it a trial. Sis months treatment $1.00, sent

A Herald Printer on a Visit to the
Michgan Peninsula.
The Herald composing room looees for
a time the services of A. H. Weiber, who
yesterday took his departure for the States
to remain for the winter months. Mr.
Weiber has been in the Herald's employ
for the past eight years, during which con
siderable period he has not been absent
from his "case" to exceed a week's time in
all. A more temperate, industrious, capa
ble printer than Mr. Weiber no publishing
establishment has ever had upon its staff.
Over and above his living expenses he
eaved a goodly sum, his surplus earnings
being wisely invested in Helena property,
the advance in vaine of which in the past
few years has been six times the original
price paid for it. He has bnilt no less
than 4'cottages which bring him an income
exceeding the amount of wages derived
from his skilled labor. Mr. Weiber now
takes an outing, which he deserves and
oan well afford, and during the next few
months will visit with friends at the old
home at Houghton, Michigan, where his
wife and little ones preceded him. May
he have a pleasant visit and return in the
spring, with welcome awaiting him by the
Herald people and a host of Helena
friends. _ _ _
Just Reward.
Yesterday the Herald called the atten
tion of the authorities to one M. Bishop,
who has been interfering with the sewer
work. Not content with this and many
petty pilferings, Bishop yesterday even
ing was accnstd of having destroyed
a number of joints of pipe in the m a in
sewer. Sixty-five are reported damaged.
Bishop is now ander arrest and will have
to answer several charges. If proven
gnilty, he should have the benefit of the
fall extent of the law.
Returned to Former Scenes.
Jeff Edmondson, noted for his daring
and the countless head of stock he man
aged to steal in yean gone by, has long
been wanted in Montana by the Cattle
Growers Association. He was recently lo
cated near Green River, Wyoming, where
he was arrested by Sheriff Ward and
turned over to Detective Conley, who, in
company with U. S. Marshal Kelly, placed
Edmondson in the county jail. He will
have to stand trial first in Meagher county,
where several indictments are against him.
A New Hotel.
It is said that the head of the Montana
Investirent company is contemplating the
erection of a fine hotel in Helena and that
the enterprise will be undertaken as soon
as the Aborn Hots? lottery is successfully

A Handsome Showing of Revenue.
From Richard P. Barden, City Treasurer
and Assessor, the Herald obtains the sub
joined list of collections under the muni
cipal levy lor the year 1888. The show
ing is an excellent one and reflects great
credit upon the gentlemanly officer of
Helena's exchequer, whose faithful labors
of the past and present in behalf
of the city will be the more fully appre
ciable in the light of the results of this
year's work. It will be seen that Dick is
a pretty close collector, as the full city as
sessment was $9,013,960, the tax levy
eight mills and the tax collections $71,
7SI 47—within $340 of the whole amount
doe. The delinquent list will consequent
ly be very small.
Following is a statement of the taxes
collected and the amounts that go to the
different funds:
General fund...........................................$26.357.71
Fire I>epartment fund............................ 26.338.69

Beecher Moore's Valise Found to Con
tain Some of the Articles Stolen
at Missoula,
Sheriff Heyfron, of Missoula, arrived in
the city yesterday for the purpose of taking
into custody young Beecher Moore, the
ex bell boy, who was arrested on the
charge of being concerned in the burglar
izing of a gnn store at Missoala last Satur
day night. Notwithstanding the boy's
previous good name and his apparently
sincere protestations of innocence, a search
of his effects revealed several of the ar
ticles taken from the gun store. In his
valise were found a number of pocket
knives, lead pencils, several cards of fly
hooks, all recognized as being ajpart of the
goods stolen. When confionted with the
evidence of his guilt the boy did not con
fess his participation in the robbery, say
ing to a reporter "the boys have put up a
job on me."
The sheriff took Moore to Missoula to
day for trial.
The Reception by Algeria Temple of
the Mystic Shrine.
Last evening the Algeria Temple, An
cient Arabic Order of the Mystic Shrine,
the only branch of that order in Helena,
gave a reception at the Masonic Temple, the
occasion being the installation of officers.
Invitions had been issued to wives and
friends of the members to the number of
two hundred, and a goodly company of
ladies and gentlemen assembled. The in
stallation ceremonies were conducted by
Illustrious Potentate W. N. Baldwin, who
inducted the following named nobles into
office: J. C. Majors, chief raban; C. B.
Nolan, assistant raban; E. W. Craven, high
priest and prophet; Ed. Neill, Jr., princi
pal conductor, Richard Lockey, chief
marshall; T. H. Kleinschmidt, treasurer;
George Booker, recorder; W. D. Smith and
Cornelias Hedges, masters of ceremonies; A.
B. Cook, captain of the guard, and B. W. S.
Folk, outer sentinel.
Another featare of the ceremony was a
presentation by E. W. Knight, on behalf of
the order, of a jeweled Shrine emblem to
no less a personage than Cor key Bow Wow,
the canine lieutenant of Outer Sentinel
Folk. The presentation speech was full of
good things and Corkey applauded at every
good hit—that is, he barked every time
Mr. Folk pinched his tail.
After the members and guests had par
taken of an elegant banquet, Noble Logan,
who was presiding, called upon a number
of guests to respond to toasts. Ex-Gov.
B. Platt Carpenter spoke to "Montana and
Statehood;" E. W. Knight to "Oar Wives,
Sisters and Sweethearts;" E. W. Craven to
"The Strangers Within Our Gates;" C. B.
Nolan to 'The Babies,'' and Noble Fitz
patrick, ef Abdallah Temple, Leaven
worth, Kan., responded very appropriately
on behalf of the guests from abroad. Tts
banquet and toasts ended, dancing and
whist-playing were inaugurated and kept
np until a late hoar, when the company
dispersed with pleasant recollections of the
festive occasion.

A Valuable Main Street Property Filed
on by a Contestant.
A renewal of the lot jumping excitement
which created a sensation in Helena last
year is seemingly promised by an event
that transpired this morning. If reports
be true, a certain person or persons,
whose names we are nnable to obtain,
has filed on a valuable lot on north Main
street, now occupied by Weirs stable and
corral. The property in question is occu
pied by Mr. Weir under a lease from Joseph
Horsky, whom everybody herto
fore considered the owner of the
ground and whose claim thereto has
been undisputed for years. As near
as we can learn, the parties
filing on the ground now, do so on the
strength of the claim that the lots jamped
had never been deeded by the Probate
Judge and are consequently yet open for
entry in the old townsite. The contes
tants had the property surveyed this morn
ing and (that part which they claim
staked off. The case will probably have
to be settled in the courts.
At the hoar of going to press no filing
npon the property had been made in the
Probate coart, thoagh from the nature of
the information received there seems to be
no donbt that each a step is contemplated.
Death of W. W. Randall.
Hon. W. W. Randall died this morning
at St Peters Hospital in this city, after a
lingering illness in which diabetes and
heart troubles 'were complicated factors
The deceased was a native of New York
State and a man about fifty-five years
of age. He has been in Montana
for the past few years, interested in stock
raising near Great Falls. During the
course of his residence in the Territory he
made many fast friends, who will grieve to
hear of his demise. He was an able bosiness
man and a genial, cultured gentle
man who favorably impressed all with
whom he came io contact. He was a
brother of former Postmaster General,
Randall and a second coasin of Hon. Sam
uel J. Randall, of Pennsylvania. Mr. Dunn,
his nephew, was here daring his last ill
ness and will take the remains East for
interment at the old home in Desplaines,
New York.
Back from Idaho.
Hngh McQuaid and F. M. Chadboorne
retnrned last night from a ten days' out
ing in Northern Idaho. The presence of
snch distinguished personages on the east
bound train, was too mach, it seems, for
the irdinary rolling stock of the Northern
Pacific, for the engine blew oat a cylin
der head after leaving Misoonla
and the train was delayed for several
hoars about »three miles west of Helena
by a freight wreck that obstructed the
track. The other irate passengers mast
have concluded that Hngh and Chad,
were Jonahs, for after waiting two hoars
at the wreck, the Helena men
were fired into the first hack that
came along and sent to town, where
they arrived abont midnight. The wreck
was cleared shortly after and the train went
on East. McQnaid says they had a good time
riding horseback, boating and cl mbing
mountains at Pen d'Oreille lake, but he is
not stack onjthe country which is damp and
rainy; but what broke his heart was that
when he tried to climb a mountain whose
sides were as steep as the side of a house,
the natives treated the thing as a matter
of coarse and called the declivitous emi
nence only "a gentle rise."
For America.
Stephen Spitzley is in from his northern
ranch and wears a beaming face among his
long time Helena friends. Scores of vetef
rans had the pleasure of greeting him at the
Grand Army session Friday evening. Mr.
Spitzley is one of the pioneer citizens of
Lewis and Clarke county and is highly re
spected by a great number of oar people
who have intimately known nim for the
past two decades and more. He leaves
presently for the States, where for the first
time in twenty-one years he has now ar
ranged to visit He expects to attend the
inauguration of Harrison, next 4th of
Mardi. __ _
Going to the Coast.
CoL Boss Deegan and family leave to
morrow for Southern California, where
they expect to spend the winter and spring
months. The Colonel attended the Grand
Army meeting last evening, and gave the
many comrades an opportunity to meet
him and speak their good wishes for a
pleasant journey and an enjoyable visit to
the coast. Daughter Ada is to enter one
of the advanced schools in the Golden
State, there to complete her education.
Attempt to incite Arson.
Two colored women, by name of Emma
Wood and Carry Foy, last night made
complaint to the officers, that they were
afraid another colored woman named Ella
St Clair would set fire to their house and
that a colored man named Charley Bailey
had told them that the St. Clair woman
had offered him $25 00 to set the house
afire. The St Clair woman and Bailey
were at once arrested and Bailey confessed
substantially to the same story. He said
>hii the woman gave him a bottle of coal
oil and told him to enter the building by
the rear window, to scatter the oil and set
fire to it The building in question is the
one lately occupied by "Anty Fat" It seeu*s
that an old fend existed between the
women and St Clair wanted to use these
means to avenge some fancied wrongs.
A fire in that locality would have been
of most serions resnlts and the frustration
of the scheme is a happy event indeed.

More Railroads for Montana.
We take the following from the Medi
cine Hat Times. It foreshadows the ap
proach of the Galt road to Great Falls,
which is the natural southern terminas for
any snch road.
"At last matters are assuming definite
shape regarding the extension of the Galt
railroad from Lethbridge into the mining
centers of Montana. The smelters of Ana
conda and Butte are anxious to obtain the
Galt coal, and have promised the company
to take all that can be shipped from Leth
bridge. Tbe northwest has already lost
millions of dollars tbe past few years by
the disallowance of a charter for the con
struction of the road in Montana, bat now
that Mr. Galt has returned with capital
and a determination to at once commence
operations on the proposed new line, noth
ing should be thrown in the way of its
immediate construction. The passenger
traffic on this line will undoubtedly pay
the operating expenses, as it will connect
with both the Manitoba and Northern Pa
cific roads, and the importance ot this new
line will soon be recognized by the travel
ling pablic.
The Lundstrum Reward.
City Attorney Botkin recently laid the
• tse of the Lundstrnm reward before the
county board and requested that the city
be re-imbnrsed for the money, $300, ex
pended in that way. Mr. Botkin argned
that the reward should have properly come
from the county, bat at the time
the board was not in session,
tbe occasion demanded immediate
action and the city offered the reward,
trusting that the connty would assume the
same and repay the money at some fntnre
time. But the board did not take that
view of the case and resolveo as they
had not been consulted in tbe matter, they
would take no action npon it. This grew
out of the offer and payment by the city
of $300 reward for the finding of the body
of Anna Landstrum in a prospect hole
near Helena, on the charge of whose
murder Bryson is now awaiting trial.
They Would Ask the Brand.
A northern Montana exchange says:
"This is December, we believe. It is bard
to realize that fact when we see flies, mos
quitoes and gnats buzzing aronnd in the
open air. Such strange sights for the win
ter season have been observed several times
of late, and to-day the insects in places
were really annoying. What will onr
friends of the frozen East^think of Montana
when they read this item?"
Making all dne allowances for Montana's
fine weather, dear cotem., they would
probably inquire as to the brand of whisky
used in yonr section and also the dimen
sions of tbe bags and creepy things noted
in your vision.
Important Decision.
A Western exchange says: Judge
Langford decided at Walla Walla
last Tuesday that a railroad company is
not liable for damages resulting to stock
because the company had not fenced its
track; that ander common law the owners
of cattle mast keep them off the premises
of others. In short, that the owner of real
estate, even of a railroad company, is not
bonnd to fence against the deprepredations
of cattle, in the absence of a special statnte.
This is a very important ruling, and under
it, if sustained, railroads need not fence
their tracks. The case will be appealed to
the supreme coart.
Work Suspended,
[Walla tV ilia Union.]
Work on the Washington & Idaho rail
road was suspended a few days ago, throw
ing nearly 1,000 men out of employment.
The suspension is believed to be dne to
the delay in wearing permission to cross
the Cœur d'Alene reservation. The rail
road people preserve discreet silence upon
the matter and it is thought the suspension
is only temporary.
Killed a Buffalo.
A buffalo ball and cow were killed, a
few days since, by a couple of half-breeds,
abont twelve miles north of the Moccasin
moan tains. Their hides and quarters were
brought into Lewiatown and excited mach
interest, together with a general expression
of regret that the ruthless hunter had not
spared thew remnants of the almost ex
tinct monarch of the prairies. The same
fellows also bagged a great number of
black-tail deer, wild cats and wolves, also
two or three moan tain lions.
The Bounty Law,
A Philbrook correspondent of the Hus
bandman says
The situation manifestly calls for tbe re
storation in all its former fullness of the
bounty law. The farmer demands it; the
stockman demands it; the interests of the
Territory demand it In view of thew
considerations and for the enactment of
the measure to which they refer, there
should be a strong and united movement
brought to bear on the next Territorial
legislature now soon to assemble.
Certificate of Election.
To-day Gov. Leslie and Secretary Webb

Seventeen yenra from a Skin Diseane,
ConItl not vs k urrtrrH niysrlf. A
mass of disease from head to
foot. Cured in eight weeks
by the Cntlcnra Remedies.
At the age of three months a rash I which aft« r
w.rds proved to be eczema or salt rheum) made
its appearance on my face. A physician was
called. He said teething was the cause ; he pre
scribed some cooling medicine, but the sores
spr> ad to my ears and head. A nother M. D.
was called. He profess- d to know all about the
case, ra led it "King's Evil," and piescribed
gunpowder, brimstone, and lard mixed into a
salve; but the d'-ease continued. Thev could
not do anything with it. Another prescribed
borax, water, and flour: another, linseed poul
tices. None of them did me any good at all, but
made me worse. The disease continued un
abated ; it spread to my arms and legs, t'll I was
laid up entirely, and from continually sitting on
the floor on a pillcw my limbs contracted so that
I lost all control of them, and was utterly help
less. My mother would have to lift me out and
Into the bed. I could get around the house on
my hands and feet, but I could not get my clothes
on at all. amt had to wear a sort of dressing
gown. My hair had all matted down or fallen
off 1 , and my head, face and ears were one scab,
and 1 had to have a towel on my head all the
time in the summer to keep the flies off. My
parents consulted a prominent physic: .n and
surgeon here In Chicago, (the other physicians
before mentioned wereof Dunias and Hamilton,
Canada. He said lie cou'd do nothing for me.
He wante*' to cut the sinews of my legs, so that
I could walk : hut I would not let him, for if I
did get better I would have no control of them.
The disease continued in this manner until I
was seventeen years old, and one day in Janu
ary, 1879. I read an account In the Tribune of
your Ccticcba Remelifs. It described my case
so exactly that I thought, as a last resort, to give
them a trial.
When I first applied them I was all raw and
bleeding, from scratching myself, but I went
asleep almost immediately, something 1 had not
done for years, the effect was so soothing.
In about two weeks I could stand traight, but
not walk. I was so weak, but my sores were
near.y well. As near as I can judge the Cm
CXRA Remedies cured me in about rix to eight
weeks, ana up to this date, (i. e. from January,
1879, to January, 1887.) I have not been sick in
any way, or have had the least signs of the dis
ease re.ppearing on me.

No single disease has entailed more suffering
or hastened the breaking up of the constitution
than Catarrh. The sense of smell, of taste, of
sight, of hearing, the human voice, the mind,—
one or more, and sometimes all, yield to its de
structive influence. The poison it distributes
throughout the system attacKs every vital force,
and breaks up the most robust of constitutions.
Ignored, because but little understood, by most
physiciaus, impotently assailed by quacks and
charlatans, those suffering from it have little
hope to be relieved of It this side of the grave.
It fs time, then, that the popular treatment of
this terrible disease by remedies within the
reach of all passed into hands at once competent
and trustworthy. The new and hitherto untried
method adopted by Dr. Sanford in the prepara
tion of his Radical Cure has won the hearty
approval of thousands. It is instantaneous in
affording relifflo all head colds, sneezing, snuf
fling and obstRkted breathing, and rapidly re
moves the most oppressive symptoms, clearing
the head, sweetening the breath, restoring the
senses of smell, taste and hearing, and neutra
lizing the constitutional tendency of the disease
towards the lungs, liver and kidneys.
Sanford's Radical Ctbe consists of one bot
tle of the Radical Cure, one box of Catarrhal
Solvent and Improned Inhaler; price. 81.
