The Northern Pacific Contemplating
the Erection of a $150,
000 Hotel.
A prominent Northern Pacific official is
authority lor the statement that his road
will soon begin the erection in Helena of
a magnificent building to be need for depot
and hotel purposes. It will be built in the
northern part of the city near the site of
the present passenger depot and its cost is
estimated at §150,000. If such an outlay
is made, there is no donbt the contem
plated building will be a grand structure
and one that will reflect credit both on
the city and the railroad company. The
present depot building while good enough
in its way, has outlived its fitness
and surely the character of the Helena of
to-day demands a better passenger station
than the old frame that has done duty
since the advent of the railaoad. The fact
that neither the Northern Pacific nor Mon
tana Central have yet given the city any
thing in the way of passenger depots bet
ter than what necessity merely demands,
is taken by outsiders as evidence that the
two roads Cöntemplate entering a union de
pot at no distant day, and, from certain re
marks and hints f om railroad men, it is
concluded that this year will see a move in
this direction on the part of Helena's trans
continental lines.
Sheriffs' Convention.
Yesterday there met in Helena a body
of men that form the pillars ol Montana's
law—notably, the Sheriffs of various coun
ties of the Territory, drawn thither by the
desire to present to the Legislature a peti
tion for remedial legislation. Every coun
ty is represented. The meeting is called
to discuss the law relating to the
compensation of county officers, especially
sheriffs, which, since the fee law took effect,
is working a hardship on the newly elected
officers. The sheriffs object to the fee sys
tem as now in force, and think salaries
ought to be attached to their offices as for
merly, since under the present law it is
next to impossible for a sheriff to keep the
necessary force of deputies and perform
all his duties without losing money. The
result of the meeting, which is in session
again to-day, will probably be to submit a
statement of facts to the legislature and
urge upon that body the propriety of pas
sing a law that will do justice to the of
ficers. This will have to be done in a
general way, if done at all, for the restric
tion act of Congress forbids the passane of
local or special laws to change
the compensation of officers during the
terms for which they are elected or ap
pointed. A bill that will cover the ends
sought and meet the approval of the
sheriffs will probably be introduced into
the legislature at an early day.

Bi-Metallic Works.
The Bi-Metallic Company, at Philips
burg, started the stamps in their new mill
on the 2d and the pans on the 5th. They
expect to ship bullion by the 19th. This
mill has fifty stamps and all the most ap
proved appliances for handling ore with as
little labor as possible. The material
handled but once after it gets to the mill
(on the cooling floor). They expect to run
through about sixty tons per twenty-four
hours. The bed is iu place for another en
gine to be joined directly to the fly-wheel
now running. Some of the bat
tery frames are also in place
for the additional fifty stamps
which may be looked for in the near fu
ture. A tramway is also under construe

Sheep Ranch Burned.
f F. D. Cooper, of this city, returned from
his brother [George's sheep ranch, about
twenty miles above San River, in Choteau
county, Wednesday night, and brings the
news of an extensive fire there last Sunday
night, by which two houses, 300 sheep, two
horses, and 300 tons of hay were burned
It was during the hour when the chinook
was getting in its work. The tire started
from a defective flue, and the gale was
so tierce that before anything could be
doue the flames had ignited a hay stack,
from which a building where sheep and
horses a ere kept was set ablaze. Fire
fighting was useless, and the whole place
was left to the mercy of the flames, the oc
cupants of the raDch barely escaping with
their lives. The loss is quite a heavy one,
and it is believed there was no insurance
on the place. Mr. Cooper is one of the
largest sheep owners in the Territory, hav
ing many thousand in his flock, so the loss
will not be felt to any great extent. He
has already begun rebuilding the houses
destroyed by the fire.
Kennedy, the Crank.
Councilman Kennedy's crankiness was
given another airing in the session of the
Council this afternoon. When the gam
bling bill came to a vote Kennedy skulked
trom the chamber to avoid
casting his vote upon a meas
ure that, to use slang, he
had done "his dirty darndest" to de
leat. But the Hergeant-at-Arms was sent
lor him and he was brought back to his
seat. He then refused to vote, whereupon
Council men Brown,Middleton and Thomp
son, ot Deer Lodge, administered to the
recalcitrant member a verbal dressing-down
that he will never forget. Bat, as on the
registration bill two years ago, Kennedy
could not get out of voting and as a mat
ter of course voted against the gambling
bill. m

Death of a Former Well Known Mon
tanian—Sketch of His Life.
Alexander Kemp, formerly a prominent
citizen of Helena, died at his late home,
St. Joseph, Mo., Feb. 3rd. In an extended
sketch of Mr. Kemp, the St.'Joseph Herald
speaks at some length of his Montana
career, which is not unknown to many of
our old timers. Says the Herald: The
fall 04 '62 he went to Virginia City, Mon
tana. The rich placer mines were rapidly
filled up by men from all parts of the
world. The hardest characters the world
ever saw flocked there, and the people
were forced to resort to heroic measures to
insure protection. In the early spring of
'64 the first election of county officers
occurred. The law abiding people
ran Mr. Kemp for the office of
sheriff. The opposition ran one
Jack Plummer, a Georgian. This man was
well connected, and had been thoronghly
educated. His person and bearing was
princely in the highest degree. It was gen
erally understood that Kemp was fairly
elected, bat Plummer, with the aid of his
lieutenants succeeded in getting possession
of the office. However, before the result of
the election was ascertained, Kemp was
called to visit St. Joseph because of
the dangerous sickness of his wife
who was dying with consumption. But
for this reason, he would have been sheriff,as
those who knew the high courage of the
man can testify. Plummer and thirty-six
others were huug that spriDg by the vigi
lance committee. Among the number was
Slade, the freighter. Those who have
read Mark Twain's "Roughing It" will re
member his history.
From Virginia City Mr. Kemp moved to
Helena, where hs established the largest
manufacturing establishment in the Terri
tory. He became largely interested in
mining operations, and made and lost large
sums of money. He built and operated the
first quartz mill ever constructed in Mon
tana. He was aD expert in mining, and in
all the different methods of reducing ore
he was authority.
By a strange fatality the fire demon de
stroyed two large quartz miils and his
manufactory in a single year. At one time
he owned a large wheat farm in California,
which he afterwards sold to his brother,
Tiring of Western life he returned to
Missouri some ten years since. He married
Mrs. Mollie Gove in 1880. He has since
lived several years in Colorado, where he
speculated in Denver real estate. He was
also interested in quartz mining in that
State. For several years he and bis wife
have spent their time as their inclinations
directed, traveling >nd visiting health
resorts. When he was taken sick, they
were planning to spend the winter in
The Crahan Brothers Arrested
Assaulting Two of Their
Judge Fleischer this morning issued
warrants for the arrest of Thomas Crahan,
Martin Crahan and Charles Shaw on the
charge of aesanlt and battery preferred by
F. E. Thieme, proprietor of the Grand
Pacific hotel at the Northern
Pacific depot. The persons on
whom the assault was committed
are Jack Springer and John Davis. The
latter were seen by a reporter to-day and
told the following story:
Last Sunday night Springer, who was
employed as a "capper" or "booster" at
Crahan's gambling house on upper Main
Btreet, won between $50 and $60 at a game
in the resort for which he was working.
Instead of returning the money to
his employers he pocketed his winnings
and skipped ont. Davis, who was a sort of
pal of Springer's and who was al30 in
Crahan's employ, was discharged that
same night, for what reason does not ap
pear. Search for Springer revealed the
fact that he was at the depot and last
night the Crahan brothers and Charlie
Shaw, their bar-tender, got in a hack and
drove down to the depot to
look after the fugitive "booster." About
one o'clock this morning, while Springer
was playing cards in the office of the
Grand Pacific hotel, the door opened and
in rushed the two Crahans and Shaw, each
ermed with a revolver. Davis was sitting
at the same table with Springer, watching
the game. He says that one of the Crahans
jnmped up on the table and began to kick
Springer in the face, at the same time
hammering his head with his revolver,
while the other went for him (Davis) in a
similar fashion. He says the bystanders at
tempted to interfere bat the attacking
party kept them at hay with their guns.
During thecom motion Officer Qnentin, the
night watchman at the depot, appearde
and arrested the crowd, at the same time dis
arming the Crahans and Shaw. This pnt
an end to the trouble and prevented farther
hostilities, though both Springer and Davis
were badly cut about their heads. For
some reason all the parties were afterwards
released from custody until this morning
when Mr. Thieme came up town and Bwore
oat warrants for the arrest of the attacking
party, who will probably have a hearing
next Monday before Justice Fleischer
County Attorney Balliet will prosecute the
The Assembly.
Last night the Assembly Club gave an
other of its enjoyable dances at Enchore
Hall. It was largely attended and a very
pleasant time was spent in dancing to the
inspiring strains of Yaeger's orchestra.
Refreshments were served at 11 o'clock af
ter which dancing was resumed and con
tinued till an early hoar this morning.

To Washington for the Presidential In
John Magnire has effected arrangements
with the railroads by which a Montana
train will be rnn from here direct to Wash
ington for the Presidential inauguration on
the 4th of March. Sleeping car accommo
dation is secured by which the Pullmans
will remain in possession of the party un
til their return home. This is the princi
pal feature of the entire business, as all ho
tel accommodations at Washing
ton are already engaged, and in
stead of having to hustle for beds
they will have the advantage of the
"sleeper" daring their stay. The railroads
have positively declined to make any re
daction in the regular fare. Bat in the
event of a sufficient number being guaran
teed» Mr. Maguire will be able to place the
Montana delegation to Washington, in
point of accommodation, second to none.
The Pullman cars will be exclusively for
this party. An extra dining car will also
be attached. As the demand for Pullman
cars is something so unprecedented as to
excel all former occasions of this kind, the
number of excursionists must of necessity
be limited. All désirons of representing
Montana on this occasion will communicate

An Honest Git I.
Editor Herald :—Isn't the following
story of Lincoln worth an item? F. D. K
Daring the war Miss N., a beautiful and
spirited Virginian, whose brother (a Con
federate soldier) hr.d been taken prisoner
by the the Union forces, was désirons of
obtaining a pass which would enable her
to visit him Francis P. Blair agreed to
secure an audience with the President, but
warned his young and rather impulsive
friend to be very prudent and not let a
word escape her which would betray her
Southern sympathies. They were ushered
into the presence of Mr. Lincolo, and the
object for which they had come stated. The
tall, grave mao bent down to the petite
maiden, and, looking searchingly into her
face, said: "Yon are loyal, of course?" Her
bright eyes flashed. She hesitated a moment
aDd then, with a face eloquent with emo
tion and honest as his own, she replied:
"Yes, loyal to the heart's core—to Vir
ginia!" Mr. Lincoln kept his intent gaze
upon her for a moment longer and then
went to his desk, wrote a line
or two, and handed her the
paper. With a bow the interview ter
minated. Once outside, the extreme vexa
tion of Mr. Blair found vent in reproach
ful words: "Now, yon have done it !" he
said. "Didn't I warn you to be very care
ful? You have only yourself to blame."
Miss N. made no reply, bnt opened the
paper. It contained these words:
"Pass Miss N.; she is an honest girl and
can be trusted. A. Lincoln."
The Dakota Stock Law.
The stockmen of Montana are beginning
to awaken to the fact that there is a bill
pending in the Dakota Legislature that
concerns them almost as mach as it does
their Dakota brethren. The bill is to
repeal the law to prevent the spread of
contagions diseases among live-stock, and
has already passed the lower house of
the Dakota Legislature by a small
majority. If the law is repealed, it
will throw open the ranges of Dakota to
shipments of diseased animals from all
parts of the country and will expose the
eastern border of Montana to simile
danger. The stockmen of this Territory
hope to see the measure defeated and the
Dakota law left as it is, since it is a great
help to the Montana law in keeping out
infectious and contagious diseases.

Ross Deegan Revisits an Old Stamp
ing Ground and Reviews the
Scene of His Shipwreck.
The Daily Sun, of SaD Diego, California,
polishes the following in its issue of Jan
uary 23d nit:
Captain Ross Deegan of Helena, Mon
tana, is now making his second visit to
San Diego. He arrived a day or two ago
by rail, and has taken rooms for the
winter at least in the Bowman block, on
Fourth street. On the occasion of Mr.
Deegau's first visit he did not come by
rail, and there was neither a Bowman
block or a Fourth street, or aDy other
street iu this portion of Sau Diego. Mr.
Deegan's trip was made by water, and it
proved to be mighty wet water too. He
was one of the passengers of the steamer
Golden Gate, and was on his way from
Panama to San Francisco when that
steamer encountered the storm that made
it necessary lor her to run in here.
"I think there were twelve or fifteen
hundred of us on the boat," said the cap
tain during a pleasant chat this morning.
"We started out to beat the rival steamer,
John L. Stevens, to San Francisco, for a
wager of $50,000 a side. We took tne lead
and increased it right along until we got
about 400 miles south of here, when we
broke a shaft that disabled one of tne side
wheels. That of course settled the race.
The Stevens soon overtook us. They sig
nalled to ask if we wanted any help, bnt
our officers thought they could make Sau
Francisco in course of time with the re
maining wheel, and answered no. Shortly
after, however, a storm came up, and in
the disabled condition of the vessel
it was seen we could not pull
through, so we steered for San Diego har
bor. We arrived in the night and in mak
ing an entrance ran on the sand. The
vessel settled down, and hogged about a
good deal. The entire crowd of us got on
the main deck—and tilled it as lull as
standing room would allow—and there we
stood holding on to the fixtures above us
all night. It was a pretty rough ex
perience. Next morning small boats and I
think a coast steamer came out and took
ns off to main land. We staid here about
two weeks, when the company sent another
vessel out from San Francisco after us.
"I was out with my wile trying to iden
tify and show her the locations," contin
ued the Captain," but the general lay of
the laud is the only thing that appears at
all familiar. Even Old Town, which was
then the only town here, is so changed
that I can hardly recognize it. As near as
I can make out the saud bauk we lodged
on was there at the end of what you call
North Island. There is where the
Golden Gate Btruck and where
we stood up all the night. I like the ap
pearance of things now better thau I did
then from the main deck of that vessel.
When the boats came to ns that morning I
think they must have taken ns across the
channel, over there to what yon call Rose
ville. I know we landed on the mainland
and walked around on some low ground
like the fiats there to Old Town. Accord
ing to my recollection Old Town was then
composed entirely of adobe bnildings, bnt
when I was oat there yesterday I could
only identify a very few points."
"Was that your first trip to this coast?"
only identify a very few points."
"Was that your first trip to this coast?"
was asked,
"No, that wàs my third trip. I was here
in '46, again in '50. then in '54, when
had the experience with the Golden Gate.
I went back again, bnt returned the fourth
time just before the war. I was a Free
soiler in Kansas, and afterwards joined
Houston's rangers. Then coming to the
Coast I was in Los Angeles when Dr.
len and a Frenchman were building a
tel. I put in the boiler and steam aparatus
for them, and believe I have the honor
blowing the first steam whistle ever blown
in Southern California. We had the
gine set up about 2 o'clock in the morning,
and immediately set up a shriek which
very nearly set the natives crazy. They
thought something in the sky was making
the noise."
The Captain is now a stock raiser, with
a big range and breeding establishment
Montana. He likes this coantry. "And
I was thirty years younger," he says,
would go to stock raising right here."
An Appeal to the American People.
Cincinnati, February 7.—The exec
utive council of the Irish National League
at the meeting to-day passed resolutions
pledging continued support to the Irish
people and the leaders appealing to the
people of America for continned aid to
Irish patriots. Preliminary arrangements
were made for a convention of Irish
Philadelphia in July, at which every
Irish organization of any Dation whatever
shall be represented and delegations held
on some farther plan of action. $20,000
was sent to the Irish leaders on the other
side to day. The Irish people say that
the tyrant tory government of England
has thrown aside the forms of decency
under which it has heretofore veiled its
malignity and now stands forth the re
morseless executioner of naked, unblush
ing despotism. The council used with
just pride the unity and preservation ex
hibited by the Irish people in their strag
gle. Bribes, menaces and judicial murder
have failed to dampen their spirit or ma
terially crush their onward march. They
are assured that their countrymen in
America stand ready to support them in
any steps which their wisdom and prud
ence may dictate.
The Council regards with indifference
not contempt the daily perjuries before Xïx»
Parnell commission. Reference i8 made to
the "judicial murder" of Mandeville, and
the endeavor of Balfonr to keep his ex
pressed word that he would kill William
O'Brien and John Dillon by imprisonment.
The splendid spirit of the people, says the
address, shows they are worthy of onr best
efforts, and should receive our prompt,
effective and continued assistance until it
has been demonstrated that peaceful agita
tion has failed to produce in England a
sense of justice and a desire to repair the
countless injuries inflicted upon Ireland

F am going to tell you of the extraordinary
change your Cuticura Remedies performed on
me a bout the 1st of Apiil last I noticed some
red pimples like coming out all over my lx>dy,
but thougt nothing of it until some time later on
when it began to look like spots of mortar
spottod on. and u hich came off in layers, accom
panied with itching. I would s,ratch every
night until 1 was raw, then the next night the
reales, being formed meanwhile, were scratched
off again. In vain did 1 consult all the doctors
in tne country, but without aid. After giving
up all hopes of recovery, I happened to tee an
advertisement in the newspaper about your
Cuticura Remedies, and purchased them from
my drugglss, and obtained almost Immediate re

gradually dropped off and disappeared one hy

ease thirteen months before I began taking the
Cuticura Remedies, and in 4 or 5 weeks was en
tirely cured My disease was eczema and psorisis.
I rscommend the Cuticura Remedies to ali in my
vicinity, and I know of a great many who have
taken them, and thank me for the knoweledge of
them, and especially mothers who have babes
with scaley eruptions on their heads and bodies.

Catarrali to Coasnmption,
Catarrah in its destructive force stands next to
and undoubedly leads to consumption. It is
therefore singular that those afflicted with this
fearful disease should not make it the object of
their lives to rid themselves of it. Deceptive
remedies concocted by ignorant pretenders to
medical knowlege have weakened the confi
dence of the great majority of sufferers in all ad
vertised remedies. They become resigned to a
life of misery rather than to torture themselves
with doubtful palliatives.
But this wiil never do. Catarrah must be met
at erery stage and combatted with all our might.
In many cases the disease has assumed danger
ues symptoms. The bones and cartilges of the
nose, tne organs of hearing, of seeing and of
tasting so affected as to be useless, the uvula so
elo* gated, toe throat so Inflamed and Irritated as
to produce a constant and distressing cough.

of Catarrah, from a simple head cold to the most
loathsome aud destructive stages. t Is local
