Yesterday at 4 p. m. the ceremonies of the blessiDg the corner stone of the school house and church of the German Catholic citizens of Helena were very im pressive and marked. As a preliminary a procession was formed at the cathedral by the Catholic Knights, societies, sodalities and school children and members of the German Catholic congregation with a band of music. The procession escorted the bishop and clergy, who rode in carriages from the cathedral. The route of the pro cession was down Rodney to Ninth avenue and Hoback street, where already had col lected a large body of people covering at least one acre. The foundation of the new school house and church was closely floored over, which served as a platform for the services which began with the blessing of the corner stone,at the close of which the solemn music by the band was a marked interlude. An address in German by the Key. Father Murer was followed by one by the Right Rev. J. B. Lrcndel, both of which were highly appre .ated by the large congregation A solemn te deum was then given by the band, in which the whole assembly joined with hearty voice. The building was christened Saint Helena, as a marked token of respect for the city of Helena, and in honor ,,t Saint Helena, the mother of the first Christian Emperor Constantine. The stage erected upon the foundation with 3 background of evergreens was handsome ly decorated with red, white and blue flags. The members of the German congregation wore yellow badges with the words Saint Helena, printed on them. The whole cere monies were impressive and solemn and were a marked epoch in the history of our city- ______ 'I The Fish Commission Car. The United States Fish Commission car came from the west last night and stopped over at Helena until this morning, en route to Washington. It has been west to Portland, and is now goiug to Washington, where it will stock up with young shad aud make a journey down through the Southern States. The car passed Helena in January, stopping on its way to deliver carp to eighteen applicants in the city, who desired them. The application is made to the fish commission at Washing ton, and the car, which comes west twice a year, delivers twenty fish to each appli cant. The car is fitted up with all the neces sary apparatus for hatching fish. There are boilers, pumps, heating apparatus, tanks, and other appurtenances to a car of its character. It is in charge of Mr. J. F. Ellis. He says he hatched out 5,000,000 white fish on the car at Portland which were destributed among the lakes in Ore gon, Washington aud Idaho. A reporter of the Hkkald was shown some German carp. They were very tiny, about the size of minows, but Mr. Ellis said that when they were full size they averaged fifty pounds each. Important Real Estate Sale. Messrs. Thompson and Wilson have com pleted the purchase of the property on the corner of Rodney and Sixth avenue, for some years known as the Roberts home stead. The lots front 108 feet on Rodney and have a depth of 100 feet. The price paid for the property is $12,000. The Messrs. Thompson and Wilson have in view the erection of a handsome block on this valuable site. The plans have not been fully matured as yet, but it is understood that the building will be constructed for both business and residence uses. The structure, of brick and stone, will probably be of three or four doors, with store rooms below and fiats above. The location is one ot the very best for the purposes intended in the city.

A new story of the wonderful prowess of Paal Morphy, the chess player, conies drifting from Virginia. In the autumn of 1861 Morphy, then on his way to the Con lederate army near Manassas, was invited by the Rev. R. R. Harrison, of Richmond, to spend the evening with a number of other distinguished guests at his residence. After supper, while they were assembled in the parlors, attention was called to a color ed engraving entitled "J en d'Echecs," which was hanging in the room. It represented Satan, in style and dress after the German idea of Mephis'opbelee, engaged in a game of chess with a yonng man. The board lay on a tomb, aud the guardian angel oi the youth looked down with deep sadness and interest upon the position of the pieces on the board. The young man's pieces repre sented the manly virtues, and many of them had already been captured. Satan's pieces represented the tempting vic*s. The position of the piec> s as shown in the en graving was one th->t bad often been studied w th care by the Rich mond players, aod tbe young man's game was regarded as hopeless. The position wi« up in Morphy's prer-euoe, and he *-kel if the position was correct. A> er ctieint comparison ot the position on th- t» mid a d la tho e i_i..viug he was an.Wired in the ath*mstiwe Mor phy then remarke-t. m his quiet bu r al ways dignified manner, that he believed he could take the young man's position and win the game. All those who knew anything of chess expressed surprise, hut Morphy vindicated his belief in a short time. He took the yonng man's game and played against each gentlemen in succes sion and won. The devil had no chance against the genius of Paul Morphy. Rumor says that an extraordinary ses sion of the Legislative council is among the probabilities before the week is oat. w If I I he of of from the Dally Herald of March 12. THREE NOMINATIONS.

March 12.—[Special to the Herald.]—A fatal shooting scrape took place at New Chicago at nine o'clock this morning, between two ranchmen, Pat Dooley and T. C. Melrov, in which Meiroy shot Dooley with a needle gun, the ball passing just above the heart. Dooley is probably fatally wounded. The trouble was ol long standing No more can be learned. Meiroy has gone to Drummond and given himself np. The sheriff has has gone over to take the prisoner to Deer Lodge. A physician left about an hour ago to attend Dooley, whose wound is consid ered fatal. THE "TRIBUNE" TALKS. The Caustic Way in Which it Dishes up a Peculating Cotem. It will be quite a relief to the folks and fraternity all around when Mr. Harris _>n comes home, assumes charge and enters in fact upon the management of his paper. The Herald gives Russell B. credit for ideas of journalism radically different from those displayed by recent and present em ployes whom the exigencies of the moment have placed in control of the Record. We can easily understand the insistance of Mr. Harrison that as quickly as may be the name of the paper shall be dropped and that of the Journal substituted. Numbers of our contemporaries are load in their com plaints of the literary aud other larcenies of the paper, and have made known their grievances and have denounced the imposi tions from which they suffer. The most recent complaint comes from the Bismarck Tribune , from which is copied the following dressing down : , following dressing down : The Legislatures of the States and the Congress of the United States have dealt with all classes of thieves save the news paper thieves. It yet remains for some law to be enacted which will reach a news paper man who steals the work of another and appropriates it to his own use. A case in point is the clumsy thieving of some journalistic ham who has indicted himself upon the good people of Helena, and who now regales the people of that city with comments on the Montana Legislature stolen bodily from this paper and printed w ith no change save in the names. It ap pears that there is a contest over a seat in the Montana Legislature and the Record entertaint its readers with a blank verse comment thereon, the same beiDg tbe iden tical blank verse, with the exception of the names, that the Tribune published on the Wa) 8 h-Winship contest. Insomuch as the Record man (so called by cocrtesy) is dé sirons of entertaining the Montana Legis lature with blank verse, we will simply say: TO THE HELENA RECORD BOOBY. Thou poor, weak freak that doth thyself inflict Upon Montana's unsuspecting folk, why doet Thou not some nervine take, or give thy feeble mind. If such thou dost possess, some tonic that Wilt give thee men al strength to know that Thou an but a fecal« ass. And yet mèthinks The faithful beast that didst the Savior bear Through fair Jerusalem, deserveth better fate Than such comparison. Yea, for such speech I do unto the donkey give apology most hum ble. 'Twere iletter to compare tiie to thee loon, Or better still, the dodo, that hath been extinct So long that all that on this suffering earth Remains to prove that it didst live, is that Which thou dost palm upon the crowd Heleoic As something that relateth to a man. Witn fawning smile thou dost acquaintance make As one who journalistic gifts doth full possess, And hiding neath the cloud of thy obscurity Doet steal another's work thy boasting to sus tain. Oil, that thou hadst some friend considerate Who wouldsl thy skull quick ope, and unto That which doth within exist, a pump apply, That water to the shallow streams might flow. And now, that thou dost verses steal in bliss, I pray thee to not fail to copy this. The University. Rev. R. E.

Boulder, Mont., March 11.—[Special to the Herald.]—Court promptly resumed at 1:30 p. m. Again every seat was taken. The aisles were filled with interested spec tators. Examination of jurors continued and was noted for its severity. Several jurors, to the amusement of those present, scored the newspapers for not allwavs be ing reliable in their reports. A Helena morning paper, particularly, appeared to be under the ban. At 2:30 the regular panel was exhausted and later a special venire was issned. No jnror examined was opposed to capital punishment. There seems to be a disposi tion to give the defendant every possible chance for a fair trial. The court insists that no unnecessary delays shall be in dnlaged in. 3:30 p. m. —Pre-emptory challenges]of both sides are now exhausted and the last jnror called. The jury was then sworn in, composed of the following citizens of Jef ferson county : F. Hanlon, J. W. Gilkey, H. C. Shepard, Lee Haggerty, A. C. Dixon, Wm, Charmai, Geo. Hubbard, Adam Du laney, B. Wilson, Thos. Davis, C. E. Hoffen, W. P. Hoopes. The court briefly instructed the jury and warned them against using anv liquor whatsoever daring the progress of the trial. 0 [Boulder, March 12.—[Special to the HeralJ.]—The most damaging testimony introduced was brought in by Mrs. Mix ture, who lived in the same bnilding with the Brysons. In her testimony she said that she made the dress which was found on the dead woman's body. She stated she did not see the features of deceased, bat from the garments she could tell positively it was Mrs. Bryson whom she saw at the Coroner's inqnest. A cork stamp was found in the trank when it was opened at the sheriff's office betöre the grand jnry. Its impression tallied with tbe marks found on the under garments of the deceased. The purse and rings were also identified by witness as belonging to the woman. Witness stated farther that on Wednesday, between 2 and 3 o'clock, Annie Lindstrom called at her room and said she was going out for a walk with her husband; that they had made up their previous disagreement. She did not return from that walk. Witness called at their room about 9 p. m. and everything was in its usual condition. On the even ing of the following day everything was gone and she was informed that the Brysons had left and wanted her to get a few trinkets left in their room. Mrs. Mixture also stated that she heard them quarrel, and that she saw him with two satchels, and he started to leave the boose; that deceased followed him ont into the hall and from the reflections on her transom she coaid see Bryson pash the woman into the room, saying, "Are yon crazy, you old fool?" Witness said deceased gave her $5 to keep for her nntil she called for it, bat that the money was never called for. Mrs. Bryson wore false hair, and when shown to her witness identified it as like the wig worn by deceased. the wig worn by deceased. CROSS EXAMINATION. Witness had to stand a terrific cross fire. She stated that she was married, bat was not living with her husband, they having separated several years ago. She knew nothing of the defendant, had en listed in the matter from a point of com mon humanity, and not from a morose dis position towards mankind. She had seen Bryson several times. Hit had held no conversation with him. When questioned by Mr. Balliet if Bry son did not desire to leave the woman on several occasions, she stated that he started to do so, bat the deceased followed him oat into the street and he returned. Witness Duncan Dixon Called and Tells of the Finding of the Body, Boulder, March 12.—[Special to the Herald.] —Court convened promptly at 8 o'clock, bat the witnesses were tardy. It needed the sheriff and fines for contempt to bring them into coart. Mrs. Mixture was recalled for farther cross-examination. Questioned as to the the date of Annie Landstrom's disappear ance, she said: Was positive that it was on a Wednesday, and after consulting a calen dar fixed the date on Angnst 22d. She stated that deceased left the honse alone in the afternoon; was not seen again. Bryson returned and on the next evening their baggage had been removed, which she next saw again at the sheriff's office in Helena. Annie Lnndstrom had told her of her intention to go to Batte and start in business there; that she was looking for work in Helena and went to Hotel Rodney, where she*worked a day or two. In de scribing deceased, witneee differed some what from testimony of Mrs. Bennett, who had described her as "thickly built," while this witness calls her slim and slender. THE TRUNKS were again opened, and everything re moved therefrom, the witness identifying varions dresses as they were taken ont; also the cloak of deceased, which was after ward recovered in pawn. Several undergarments were introduced with varions initials, also a number of gen tlemen's handkerchiefs variously marked, some as follows : PL, JB, LH, KO, CB and E. Most of the garments produced were in a rather soiled condition and showed stains. DUNCAN DIXON was the next wituess,and gave the story of the finding of the body. Had heard a reward was offered for the finding of the body; lived about a one-half mile from the prospect hole where the body was found. Had started first to look through a patch of timber higher np on the hill. On returning discovered prospect hole and notioed imprints of a man's shoe. Cloeer to the hole noticed imprints of a woman's heel leading to the hole and on its edge to at to noticed that something had slid off and cleaned the dost off of some poles around the entrance and also cleaned it off of the edge of the hole. I went to dinner and re turned with a rope and candles and slid down the shaft. The first thing I discov ered was a woman's hat on top of a pile of rocks. These rocks looked as if some one had placed them there, and commenced to remove them, I soon discovered a womans arm, then the breast and the head. Climb ing up I started for town and went to tbe Court House and returned with Sheriff Hathaway and Marshal Hard. There was quite a company out there and four went down the shaft with a rope and those on top hoisted the body while we steadied it to keep it from striking against the sides of the shaft. We found an umbrella, which was broken and a fan near the body. There was a long chain around the neck and the clasp lock broken. A rawhide strap was fastened aronnd one wrist, while the other one showed marks as if both had been tied to gether. (Rawhide strap introduced and recognized by the witness.) Officer Bashaw first called attention to the strap. Woman's body was clothed in a white dress (also identified). The face was badly mashed, the jaw broken and the eyes were bulging out. We took the body to the Coart House. On cross-examination witness stated he had never seen the women before the day he found the body. Had never prospected in that locality and did not know of the existence of that particular proepect hole. When asked if he had not seen tracks of a carriage near the hill he stated it was im possible for a vehicle to drive np there without upsetting. He remembered later he had seen tracks higher np on the hill, about 300 yards distant, but did not know the company had seen such tracks when they came after the body. Dr. Morris, the next witness, stated in what condition the body had been fonnd. The right jaw had been broken and behind the right ear was a mark on the scalp. These wounds could have been produced with a club, rock, or by a fall down the shaft. The strap was wound three times aronnd the left wrist and the right wrist showed marks as if it had been fastened around there. It must have been fastened before death, or else there coaid not have been any marks on the flesh. Witness stated that he drove to the place in a car riage with some reporters. They drove within 300 yards of the hole, bnt could have approached it by a ridge mach closer. When asked concerning the stains on garments and the stains found on a handkerchief aronnd the leg of deceased, witness stated the stains could have been produced by varions causes. The handkerchief found on the body was tied aronnd a wound and was marked N. C. Ohlson. Witness identi fied it. Witness said that body was not pressed oat of shape by the rocks, which were all of large size. The skull of corpse was not broken, and the wounds on body in his opinion, were not sufficient to cause death. Third Day. Boulder, M. T., March 13.—[Special to the Herald.] —The coart convened promptly at 8.30. Witness Peppel was re called and gave experiments with the transoms in his hotel showing the possi bility of seeing reflections from inside of rooms. He conld see the positions of per rooms. see positions per Witten, deputy sheriff, related his story of the trunks after their arrival from Batte nntil examined by the grand jury. Mrs. Porter, of the Capitol hotel, gave the story of Bryson's arrival there. He registered as Barnes of Seattle. Mrs. Thompson called there and was introdneed to her as his sister. Bryson worked there in the dining room. Mrs. Thompson remained one hoar or more. She called again Monday, when she was followed by officers. Mrs. Thompson was called and stated she came from Minneapolis. Had known Bryson there. Defendant had called at her house in Helena several times. He never mentioned the Lnndstrom woman to her. He sent her a note he was sick and asked her to call for mail. She gave his fall name at the office and took it to the Capital Hotel and met Bryson there in the dining room. Did not kiss him. He introduced witness repeatedly as his sister. She remained about two hours. Called again at the postoffice Monday for mail. The clerk said, "Yon are not dead, as reported." Took mail and started for hotel. Entered throngh office, went up stairs, the officers following. Bryson wa 9 placed under ar rest. Witness was asked to remove her glove and give a sample of her writing. She did ao. nervously. A. Dongherty, special officer, detached to watch the postoffice, recited the story of the arrest; how he followed Mrs. Thompson to the hotel aud p'aced Brjson uDder ar rest, recognizing him from photograph.

A New Leadville West of Helena. Discovery of Vast Bodies of High Grade Carbonate Ores in Mon tana—A New Era in Montana Mining, On the counter of the Cosmopolitan there is a qu entity of ores marked "Car bonates from < he Carbonate King Mines! Near Elliston. These ores were the sub ject of mach attention and no little remark among the frequenters of the Cosmopolitan corridor, and knowing that they were some thing new to Montana, a reporter of the Herald ventured to inquire something about them. A curious and interesting story was developed. It seems that over two years ago two men, one named Mortimer D. Lamb and another named Wakeman, while prospect ing the foot bills west of the range, came upon a region where they found large boulders of carbonate float lying on the surface of the ground. They took some pieces of this float and bad it assayed, and were surprised to find it ran into the hun dreds of dollars. With great glee they returned to the spot and commenced to make locations. They worked hard, dug around the big boulders weighing tons that they saw on the gronnd, bat to their amazement they conld find no contact leads, and they were at a loss to know where all this ore came from. They worked and prospected about this float for nearly two years, and were almost in dis pair. They had told a friend named Dixon who lived at Elliston, two miles north, down the gnlch, about their find and had given him pieces of the ore. Dixon was largely known among the mining men and he told them he would find some one who would tell them something abont what they had there. Had it not been for this man it is proba ble that a great and important discovery to the mineral world of Montana would have been perhaps for years withheld, and what certainly makes a new era in Mon tana mining wonld not have been brought abont. Dixon fixed his mind upon the man he wanted to examine the property, and this man was Joseph C. C; truer, well known in Helena and, indeed, all over Montana. Cramer was one of the men who discovered the ore bodies in Lead rille, which were carbonate ores, and he made man/ locations from which tons of precious ores were afterwards taken, and men with whom he bad worked grew millionaires. By so me hoens poena movements Cramer nevef profited by his Lead ville claims. They were either all jumped, or they got away from him in some fashion, so that he never derived any benefit from them. So that in the heighth of the niuinig excitement he left Leadville as poor as when he went there. In a very disturbed state of mind he took a trip to Sonth America, bnt shortly after returned to the Rocky mountain re gion which was in a large measure his ele ment and finally drifted to Montana. Here he resolved to proepect the hills for the formation which he had fonnd in Leadville. Strongly impressed 'with the belief that wherever the Rockies ran, it carried that formatiou with it somewhere and this in the face of the long held theory of the Montana miners that snch a formation pos itively did not exist in this country. Procuring pack animals Cramer pros pected the mountains every year for months at a time, making many locations but never coming npon the character of ore or formation for which he songht. He, himself, had began to believe that the theory of the old miners was right; that there were no carbonete bodies in Mon tana. For some time Cramer was the superin tendent of the Jay Gonld mine, and he has always been looked upon as a pratical miner of worth, and his opinion on ores and mines have always been on ores and mines have always been ravely entertained. It was this man tha Dixon sought with his speci mens of carbonate or». He came upon Cramer on tbe Helena fair grounds daring the racing season, where he had gone to witness the races. Handing him the ore he asked him wha', he thonght of it. Cramer examined the ore, eyed him sharply and asked him in what part of Leadvill he had fonnd it. * "It was found in Montana and not far from Helena," replied Dixon. With suppressed excitement Cramer in quired tbe locality, learned the facts and was delighted when Dixon wound np his talk with an invitation for him to go with him to the place where the samples were found. Tbe races snddenly lost their attraction for Cramer and the next train bore the both of them westward toward Elliston. Arriving there Cramer was conveyed to the place where the ore was found. It was a beautiful and romantic spot, surrounded by some of the most thrilling scenery in the Rocky Mountain country. One glance at the sarronndings convinced him that be had found that which he had been so long in search of. He saw away to the west the same fire formation he had seen in Leadville. There was seen the dense formation of granite and lime stretching away over the open park, where corrosion has laid it bare for five miles or more, and there was the immense amphi theatre, or basin, in which the mineral lay deposited and cropping np here and there through superstratas of primeval forma tion. Cramer was excited. He studied the dis trict carefully, and though the men were anxious to know his views of the matter he would tell them nothing until he had ronnded this thing np," a performance which he had completed by the following morning. He then-nnfolded his plan. He wonld form a company, put np money to develop the property and go to work at once. This was agreed to and the Carbon ate King Company came into existence staked for $5,000,000, and Cramer was elected President and General Manager. Then they went to work. The float which had so pnzzled the prospectors had come from underneath the soil, where the ore lay in stratas between successive stratas of formation of Weber gritz and gray dyke phorphyiy. A shaft was immediately commenced, and before many feet had been sank a body of carbon ates four feet thick were struck, the lowest assay of which ran $ 100 . Hanning throngh this, they next penetrated successive layers of formation and then came upon a body of mineral seven feet thick, of a more compact character and higher grade than that previously found. This wm all in the line of the theory advanced by Cramer, and based on his Leadville experience. The work still goes on, and they are now sinking down on the bottom contact which will be upwards of twenty feet in thick ness, and is expected to carry ores running into the thousand ounces; such being the character of the ores on the final contact in the Leadville mines. The discovery, hith erto held in tbe closest secrecy, is now made known. Tbe region has been care fully gone over, and the whole of it cov ered with locations, the entire numbering 22, or 440 acree of land underlaid with this body of ore, formed by the seething miner alized lake which lost its existence in the early stages of the earth's formation. to This discovery is doubtless the most im portant ever made in Montana and causes even the eager to reflect as to what sort of a country this Montana is. Verily, indeed, it is the most wonderful mineral region in the known world. Every year presents to a wondering people new , surprises, and theories that such and such does not exist within her boundaries are blasted by suc cessive demonstrations that no discovery in the line of minerals is with her at all im probable.

The time for the drawing of the Montana Investment Co., of Helena, M. T. March 30. is rapidly approach ing. Never before in the Hiutory of the country has such a chance been offered to secure so valuable a property as the $300,000 Abom House, o£ Des Moines, Iowa, by the investment of the small sum of $5. Every man who holds a ticket is not doing himself justice, unless he doubles or triples his purchases, and a man is not true to his friends if he allows any of them to be left in ignorance of this great offer. This will probably be the last op portunity for a lawful drawing in the Territory, and the last chance t j secure a fortune for $5. Clubs should be organized in every village or city and so take advantage of the company's great offer of five whole tickets for $20, and ten whole tickets for $40. Fifth tickets $1. Remember there are 153 Cash Prizes also, from $5.000 down, and every ticket stands an equal chance of drawing the hotel or one of the * 153 cash prizes.
