Hauser recently returned from the East, where he formed a syndi cate for building the Rocky Fork & Cook City railroad to the coal fields, the work on which is now being pushed day and night. It is surmised that Henry Yillard heads the New York wing of the syndicate and that Haggin & Daly are among the promi nent Montanians interested. The Governor left for Bntte this morning, and we miss our guess if this little excursion does not result in the early completion of a direct line to Butte for the purpose of supplying that great city of smelts« with Rocky Fork coal. The Governor has been too busy to be interviewed, but we learn that he leaves for New York Saturday. For a number of years he has returned home only to put in operation some new railroad scheme, until now his enterprise has given to the Territory some eight or nine roads Will this trip result in a new road, and, if so, where ?___ Boulder Chief.

It was the colored brother that perpetuated the schism. The Southern Presbyterians in sisted that the colored brother should flock by himself, and that there shonld be no misunderstanding or false pretenses abont the mat ter. The Northern Presbyterians wanted him admitted to chmches, presby teries, synods and assemblies on professedly equal terms.

Brady Hanson, a miner slipped from the ladder as he started down the shaft and fell to the bottom, a distance of ninety feet. He fell vertically fifty feet f>nd then struck the incline, which he descended with scarcely less rapidity.

The parlors of the Executive Mansion were tastefully decor ated, ' and the entire honse was thrown open for the comfort of the gnests. Mrs. Leslie was assisted in receiving by Miss Manpin, Mrs. Shobe and Mr. and Miss Leslie; their courteous manners, and attention to the pleasure ot their gnests, throughout the evening, left a remembrance in the minds of all, and evinced that true type of cor dial Kentucky hospitality so famous in the home life of that warm-hearted people.

THE HOSSFELD MURDER. The Radersburg Ranchman Killed by a Friend Without the Slight est Provocation. The news of the killing of Robert Hoss feld, briefly reported in the Herald last evening, was brought in from Radersburg by passengers on No. 1 yesterday. The tragedy occurred in a saloon at Raders burg and the principal actors in it were John P. Freeman and Robert Hossfeld, both ranchmen of that section. Hossfeld had been pasturing some horses belonging to Freeman and yesterday the lat ter called to take them home. Hossfeld re fused to let him have them nntill the bill, $28, was paid. Thereupon Freeman raised the money and paid the bill, both men then going to Shepp's saloon where they talked of and shook hands over the difficulty while drinking together. Hossfeld then tock a chair. He had hardly seated himself when Freeman, who was perceptibly the worse for drink, palled a revolver and pointed it at him, saying, "There's one thing I can do." Hoss feld arose and stepped toward him. saying, "I'm not afraid of your gnn", when Free man fired and Hossfeld fell. Freeman, it is said, attempted to fire a second shot, bat was disarmed by the bystanders. He then made an effort to reach his horse and escape bat was canght and lodged in jail. Hossfeld was struck in the right side, the bullet catting the main artery. He expired in twenty min utes. Both men were well known. Hoss feld had lived near Radersbnrg since the early days and leaves a wife and several children. He was a highly respected citi zen and a large circle of friends bewail his tragic fate. Freeman is a man abont 24 years of age and lives on a ranch on the North Fork of the Musselshell with his brother. He has been in the country only a few years. The fanerai of the victim will take place to morrow. THE CUMBERLAND. A Deal in Progress for the Purchase of the Noted Mine at Castle. It is reported that a deal is in progress and almost assured of successful consumma tion at White Snlpbnr Springs, by which a syndicate of capitalists of that place will acquire a controlling in terest in the Cumberland Mining and Smelting company, ot Castle, now laboring ander financial embarrassment. The result of the deal will be to wipe ont the existing attachments against the Cum berland company and to at once resume the production of bullion. The new in vestors will bring sufficient capital to undertake the working of the property on a more extensive scale than ever, and it will not be long before the Cumberland will again come into prominence as a bul lion producer. The opinion is general that that the property is a valuable odo and only needs capital to make it one of the most noted mines in the Territory. All the prominent business men of White Snlphnr are represented in the syndicate and it is expected the deal will be closed in a few days. This transaction together with the favorable ontlook for a railroad bnilding into that section early this year, will tend to boom the Castle Mountain district and bring into prominence several mines that are now only promising prospects. New Incorporations. Messrs. M. H. Halle, W. C. Anning, Richard Lockey and C. D. Chambers have filed papers for the incorporation of the Montana Confectionery and [Cracker com pany for the purpose of carrying on a gen eral confectionery and cracker bnsiness in the city of Helena. The capital stock is $25,000 in 2,500 shares of $10 each. Certificate of incorporation of the Bntte Wood company, the objects of which are to deal in all kinds of wood, lumber, timber and building material of all kinds. Opera tions are to be carried on in Bntte and a portion of Jefferson connty. The capital stock is $50,000, and the incorporators are Hngh Kirkendall, Peter Larson, John F. Co wen and James A. Talbott. Certificate of incorporation of the Ana conda Water Company, the objects of which are to furnish Anaconda with water. The capital stock is $100,000, divided into the same number of shares at $1 each. The directors are James B. Haggin, Marcus Daly, John R. Toole, William Thornton and A. L. Kempland. The Contract is Signed. The committee appointed at the last session of the City Council to act with the Mayor and City Clerk in executing the contract for water have, after three meet ings, signed the document which authorizes the Woolston Water Company to famish the city with water. Owing to the persist ent efforts of Alderman Donnelly, who at tat seemed to be playing a lone hand, a provision was inserted which guarantees to protect the city amply in cases of fire. This provision makes it imperative for the company to have at all times a sufficient stage of water in their reservoir, enabling the fire department to fight the flames an hoar or more without direct pressure from the works. The penalty for failure to com ply with all provisions of the contract is a forfeiture of throe months' pay. The Water Case Decision. The case of The Helena Wator Company, heard on appeal as to the validity of Ordi nance 93, bronght yesterday a decision from the Supreme Court of the Territory, which affirms the decision of the conrt be low. In a nut shell, the cate was this: The City Council by Ordinance 93 granted The Helena (Woolston) Water Company the exclusive franchise to fnrnish the city with water. This the decision declares nnll and void, as bids for furnishing water had not been advertised. Opinion by Liddell, A. J.

A Few Figures From the Report of Our Auditor and Treasurer. The annual report of Territorial Anditor Sullivan and Treasurer Prenitt, for 1888, the receipt of which was acknowledged yesterday,"contains some figures on the state and progress of Montana that will be of interest to all the citizens of the Territory. By the report itappears that lastyearthere were in Montana 3,741,459 acres of land ander improvement and cultivation, the assessed valuation of which was $12,323, 085. When we remember that these figures are taken from the returns of county assessors and that in many cases these officers failed to obtain the total nnmber of acres cultivated in the dif ferent counties, the showing is one to be prond of. The nnmber of town lots is given at 55,249 and the assessed vaine thereof $14,939,634. The nnmber of horses is given at 142,040 (far below actnal figures) yalued at $4,852,933. Other livestock and their assessed valua tion are stated as follows: Number of cattle, 488,467; value $9,057, 293. Sheep, 1,153,771; value, $2,165,719. Mules and asses, 1694; value $W,076. Hogs, 8,791; value $41,286. An actual connt of livestock wonld far exceed these figures. Shares of stock held are assessed at $2,086,059, of which Lewis and Clarke county is credited with over $1,000,000. Capital invested in mannfactares, $404,500. Money and credits, $5,600,785. These returns are also far from complete. The total assessment of the Territory shows an increase of over seven millions of dollars since 1887 and is tabulated as fol lows: COUNTIES. 1887 1888 Beaverhead............ $ 2,897,706.00 4.372.555.00 3.931.071.00 8 3,084,120.00 3.679.489.00 3.292.495.00 3.370.874.00 1,440,349.20 7.419,364 00 2.401.873.00 4.108.692.00 3.666.366.00 12,028.890.00 3.075.835.00 2.668.547.00 3.428.761.00 2,379 983.50 9.068.823.00 2.316.072.00 Dawson..................

This accounts for the apparent decrease in the assessment of Meagher and Chotean conn ties. Lewis and Clarke, however, shows an increase in spite of its loss, bat lees than it would have shown had its boundaries remained the same. The report Bhows that the total net in debtedness of the several counties on March 1st, 1888, was $1,385,882.93. an in crease over the previous year of $137,491.99. Deer Lodge, Cascade and Missoni a show the largest increase of indebtedness, while Lewis and Clarke, Caster and Gallatin show a decrease of over $25,000 each. The Territory itself is ont of debt and has a balance of $114,000 in the treasury. INTERVIEWED. A Statement from Rev. Mr. Raleigh as to the Independent's Attacks. Oar reporter, meeting Rev. Mr. Raleigh, questioned him as follows: "Have yon seen the charge of libel made against yon in this morning's Independent ?" Mr. R.—"I have, and have only to say that, in discussing the late election in the ministers' meeting of this city, I endeavored to make the point that the hopes of tem perance reform were in the Republican party. I recited several circamstances to verity my position, among which I made a comparison between the Democratic and Republican headquarters in this city. My statements, of coarse, were made on information obtained from others, as I never frequented either place When the Independent took exceptions to my statement in reference to the Demo cratic headquarters I went to that office in person and had a conversation with the editor, Mr. Martin. I told him I was ready to publicly apologize if my state ment was not true, and wonld do so if he would deny it. He refused to deny it, though other parties standing round as serted its trnthfnlness. I am still ready to apologize for the statement if Mr. Martin will deny its truthfulness. And now, while npon the subject, may I say farther through yoar paper, that I care nothing for this discussion of why I was defeated for the Honse Chaplaincy, whether it was because of my "pulpit partisanship," or the "sponsorship of Jndge Davis," or that the Honse was too respectable a body to elect a "volunteer libeler" to each a po sition, the three different statements that the editor of the Independent has made. I think it possible that if the editor keeps on developing reasons for my defeat he may sometime hit the trae one, which in all probability was that I was unknown to every member of the Honse except Jndge Davis, had never sought per sonally or through friends for a single vote, so the only wonder to me is why my name was presented and why I got any votes. Bat I did. object to the statement in the Independent that I had offended by my "pulpit partisanship," as I never take my political convictions into the pnlpit. The statement in the Independent was not made editorially, and therefore I asked the editor to correctly as a contemptible falsehood. Neither was this a reflection on its real anthor, as often honest and trathfnl men make statements in their ignorance or carleeenees that are false. The editor of the Independent declined to correct the statement made in his coin ms and instead reported me editorially as (giving way to angry passions and writing something I would be mortified to see in print, and therefore*I bad no recourse bat to publish my card in yoar paper, and am sincerely grateful to the Herald for its kindness. rFor the Herald. OVER THE MOUNTAINS. Over the mountains, Car away, Beyond the dim horizon gray, The piny peaks green girdled stand That shelter love's enchanted land; There sunny skies will drop their gay, Rtherial slants of gilded spray Amid the mists that sweep their train Among the heights of love's domain. Over the mountains linger still The haunts where blooms their incense spill. While wintry winds in fury sweep Beyond that vale's untroubled sleep; And flitting now by fancy's feet Those blissful days themselves repeat— Sweet as the odor of the pine That echoed "love" to yours and mine. Over the mountains— peace my heart— Can come no "meet" to answer "part;" Ah! lingering, last, un languished look When each unconscious farewell took; While breathed uncertainly the breeze A thing nnseen that yet forsees The shadow of the hovering hand That led from love's enchanted land.

The Most Agonizing, Humiliating, Itching, Scaly, and burning Eczemas are cured by the Cnticura Remedies, when Physicians and all other reme dies fail. I have been afflicted since last March with a skin disease the doctors call Eczema. My face was covered with scabs acd sores, and the itch ing and burning were almost unbearable Seeing your Cuticcba Remedies so highly recommend ed, concluded to give them a trial, using the Cuticcba and Outicuba Soap externally, and Retolveht Internally for four months. I call myself cured, in gratitude for which I make this public statement. MRS. CLAR V A. FREDERICK. Broad Erook, Conn. Eczema Three Years < nred. Cuticcba B*medies are the greatest medicines on earth. Had the worst case of Salt Rheum in this country. My mother had it twenty years, and in fact, died from it. I Delieve Cuticura would have saved her life. My arms, breast, and head were covered for three years, which nothing relieved or cured until I used the Ccti ccBA Resolvent. J. W. ADAMS, Newark, O. Eczema on Baby f ined. My baby has been troubled with eczema on his face, neck, head, ears, and entire body. He was one mass of scabs, and we were obliged to tie his hands to prevent his scratching. I have spent dollars on remedies without effect, but after using one box Cuticcba and one cake of Cuti ccba Soap the child is entirely cured. I cannot thank you enough for them. F. W. BROWN, 12 Mull St.. Brooklyn, E. D., N. Y. Eczema on Hand« Cured. Two years and a half ago Salt Rheum broke out on my reght band. It appeared in white blisters, attended by terrible itching, and grad uully spread until it covered the back of the hand. The disease next appeared of my left hand, 1 tried many remedies, but could find no cure until I obtained the Cuticcba Remedies. which effected a si eedy and permanent cure. fiJAMES P.

Once established Ueatsinto the very vitals, and renders life but a long-drawn breath of misery and disease, dulling the sense of hearing, trammeling the power of speech, destroying the faculty of smell, tainting the breath and kliling the refined pleasures of taste. Insidiously, by creeping on from a simple cold in the head, it assaults the membranous lining and envelops the bones, eating through the del cate coats and causing inflammati' n, sloughing an4 death. Nothing short of total eradication will secure health to the patient and all aleviatives are simply proersttnated sufferings, leading to a fatal termination.
