From the Dally Herald of July 22. OBITUARY. Sad and Sudden Death of Mrs. E. W. Bach. Died. B*CH— In Helena, July 21, 1889, Gussie Hub hard, wife of Edmund William Bach. The community was shocked yesterday by the announcement of the death of Mrs. E. W. Bach, which occurred in the morn ing at Ö o clock at her residence on Ewing street. Her illness was of brief duration, and she gave her life in bringing into the woild a child, who, it was decreed, should pass into a better even with its mother. The deceased was a daughter of Mr. Samuel Hubbard, a prominent merchant of New York City, and during his lifetime president of the Produce Exchange. She was married in March, 1882; to Mr. E. W. Bach and came to reside in this city. She had borne to him two children, both of whom died, and the third, a daughter, (or whom she gave up her life, will be buried in the mother's arms. No death could have occurred in this city, which would create more general sor row. She was beautiful, both in person and disposition; and none knew but to love this sweet, refined and gracious lady. She was gentle courteous and charitable, a true and loyal friend, a devoted and loving wife, and a tender mother to the orphaned daughter of a sister who is now twice bereaved. She was graceful in ell her ways and motions and delicate in all her instincts. She bad a rare and culti vated taste which she displayed in the adornment of her home—which she made the delight of a large circle of friends, attracted by the spirit and grace of her conversation and her easy, genial and cor dial hospitality. She was greatly interest ed in the building of her new house where she hoped to entertain the friends who loved her, but who will see her no more, until they also join her in the house not made by hands. The sincere sorrow of m&uy loving hearts will follow her to her grave, and mourn for her in sympathy with her husband, her sole remaining sister and the little girl who has called her "mother." MR. LY/AN'S RETURN. It is Believed He Will Take Hold of the Independent. The arrival of Mr. A. W. Lyman, late of the New York Sun, accompanied by his wife and sod, revives recent rumors with respect to the sale of the Independent. Mr. Lyman to day held an interview with E. W. Knight, President of the Independent Publishing Company, and the présomption is that the transfer of the paper will take place on conditions not essentially differ ent from those heretofore stated in these columns. It is understood that gentlemen associated with Mr. Lyman in theproposed purchase are pronounced tariff Democrats and that the Dew management, if it comes into existence,will adopt a strong protective position and place the Independent in fall harmony with the industrial and labor in terests oi Montana. Democrats of control ing influence insist that there is no other course to pnreue with any hope of party success. With Mr. Lyman at the helm the odious principles of free trade and low wages are promised a black eye. WELL SINKING. A Farmer Desires the Co-operation of Capitalists. On bis farm, nine miles north of Helena, O. Benedict has sank a drilled well 521 feet. It is piped about 70 feet, part of which is eight inches in diameter and the balance six inches, below which the foun dation is soft rock easily cut with a pocket knife and readily pierced. Mr. Benedict desires to interest ten men who will put in $1,000 each and start from the bottom with the purpose in view of completing it and securing ilowing water. The enterprise would prospect the valley to a goodly depth and the broad-minded aud wealthy men invited to participate wonld not miss their money even though the ar tesian flow might not be realized Savs Mr. Benedict: "If flowing water is secured others may try near the city. Although more difficult to drill, yet success in one part of the valley will encourage efforts in another. Proposition: If flowing water, oil or gas is struck at 1,000 feet I will claim 7 16th; if at 1,500 feet, 8 30ths; if at 2,000 feet, 3 16ths. If no water flows I will claim all. to be drawn by windmill power, except gas or oil makes an appear ance in paying quantities." Biaine-Kelly.

Bond, of Washington, a Helena Visitor. A tourist party composed of S. R. Bond, Esq , and wife, Miss Hunt, a sister of Mrs. Bond, Mrs. Tbombs, all of Washington, D. C, spent yesterday and part of to-day in Helena, and this afternoon left for the Pa cific coast by the Northern Pacific express. These visitors to the Great Northwest con sumed most of last week in making the grand rounds of the National Park, and are bound hence to the Paget Sound coun try, completing their tour with the mag nificent inland water trip to Alaska. Mr. Bond is a gentleman whom the Hee ald people and others wonld have liked to detain here long enough to obtain some of his early day reminiscences. He was the Secre tary of the Government expedition under Capt. James L. Fisk, which opened the Northern Overland Route from Minne sota to the Rocky Mountains in 1862. The people who composed that expedition were the avant couriers who pitched their tents at that early day on the bright waters of the Prickly Pear at a point aboat eight miles soath of the then unmarked site of Helena. Mr. Bond was oat yesterday and to-day identifying the land marks and locating the an marked trail pursued by the pioneering wagon train. "The lay of the land" appeared quite familiar to him, not withstanding the fact that up wards of a quarter of a century has passed since he traversed the Prickly Pear valley and the rollirg environments of its broad and beautiful basin. What he terms the "Helena camp" was half a mile below the present business part of the city, afterwards planted and built along the purling brook, later named Last Chance. Before separating from the adventurous pioneers left on the Prickly Pear, members of the party had prospected for gold, and "colors" were panned from the ground that subsequently yielded largely of auriferous treasure above and below the early day camp known as Montana City. On the way to the Pacific Coast from this point the Mullan route was followed, and west of the Main Range, near the continence of the Little Blackfoot with the Deer Lodge river, Mr. Bond relates that Captain Fnk and staff, while encamped, were raided by Indians at night and all the animals with the exception of two stampeded. Search for the stolen animals was instituted the next day, and they were finally found miles away, cached in a coule between towering hills, where they had been driven by thieving bucks of the Pen d'Oreille tribe. All were recovered, and after that renewed vigilance kept the animals safe to the end of the long journey to the Colum bia. Mr. Bond's itinerary and report of the 1862 expedition, among the public records of the War Department, is one of the most interesting of the series of reports of the several northern overland expeditions con ducted by Captain Fisk. Mr. Bond has been a continuous resident of Washington since his early transcontinental tramp, and is one of the prominent and prosperous lawyers of the Nation's capital. is Complimentary Resolutions. The followind resolutions were passed at the late Methodist Episcopal Conference, when that body learned of the prospective departnre of Rev. R. E. Smith: Whebeas, We have learned of the prob able removal of Rev. R. E. Smith to his old conference, the Cincinnati, thns severing his connection with this body; therefore, " Resolved , That we very much regret the fact of his removal from ns. We have al ways found him a genial, faithful and ef ficient servant of God. We shall cherish a kindly feeling for him and shall ever pray for his prosperity and usefulness wherever, in the providence of God, his lot may be cast. Should he at any time desire to re turn to this conference, we will gladly wel come him to oar fellowship. W. A. Shannon. W. E. King. J. J. McAlisteb. Geobge Comfobt. Geo. C. Stull Geo M. Rydeb." A Message of Condolence. Whebeas, Affliction in doable measure has fallen upon our beloved high priest and prophet, in the sadden death of his dear and devoted wife, the frieod and companion who more than all others lights and warms the inner sanctuary of the son!; now, there fore, be it Resolved , By the members of Algeria Sbrine, on theoasis of Helena, that we ten der our noble companion, Frank W. Me Connell, our heartfelt sympathy in this overwhelming bereavement. Oar faith as sures ns that it iB well with her who has gone. In a nobler and happier world of life, what was loved on earth can never cease to be an object of affection. Though a loving wife has gone from your side |a devoted guardian angel will hover over your weary and lonely way across the desert of life, and all too soon for earthly ambitions and the clingiDgaffection of rela tives and friends yon will go to meet her where even now she bas a welcome ready. Cobnelius Hedges. W. D. Smith. E. D. Aiken. Helena, Jane 19, 1889. Bryson's Case. The motion for a new trial for George D. Bryson has been argued to-day before the Supreme Court. The points set forth by the counsel for Bryson are chiefly: Incompetency of jnrors, insufficiency of evidence to establish guilt and sustain the verdict, newly dis covered evidence, error of the coart in fail ing to make arguments of counsel part of the records, inadmissibility of the letters written by defendant to Mary O'Dell. Bryson's father ia watching the proceed ings with great interest, aod has great hopes that Attorney Balliet will obtain a new trial for his son. Invention of a Helena Mechanic. D. Snmner West, with Ashby & Co., has received a patent for a spring wheel for vehicles, which in a measure may revolu tionize the world of running gears in at least one particular—that of spring attach ments. The wheel, including the hnb, is constructed entirely of metal, the spokes beiDg in a carved shape and imparting all the spring relief reqnired for ease and com fort in riding. The invention is an import ant one, and may do away altogether with body springs, now in use. Thousands have been relieved of indiges tion and loss of appetite by a single bottle Ayer's Sarsaparilla. The nse of this medi cine, by giving tone and strength to the assimilative organs, has made innnmerable cares of chronic dyspepsia. Price $1 Worth $5 a bottle. From the Daily Herald of July 24. WILL GO TO COURT. The Northern Pacific and Montana Fighting its Way into Butte. Butte, July 24. —[Special.]—In order to obtain right of way into the city the North ern Pacific and & Montana Railroad com pany will have to fight for almost every inch of ground. As soon as it became known definitely where the course of the proposed road was to be, a number of per sons located claims directly in line of the route and the company has made repeated efforts to effect a settlement with these parties and has failed invariably. Having become tired of these futile attempts at amicable adjustment, the company has be gan condemnation proceedings in the dis trict conrt, and filed complaint yesterday. To-morrow Sheriff Lloyd will serve sum mons upon the claim-holders. Preliminary hearing will take place at the conrt house August 17. The complaint is styled the Northern Pacific & Montana Railroad com pany vs. W. Chesney et al. KILLED BY^A BLAST. Fatal Accident on the Butte Branch of the Northern Pacific. Butte, July 24. —[Special.]—The second fatality to occur on the grade of the Butte Short Line took place yesterday morning at 9 o'clock, ten miles east of the Home stake summit. Particulars obtainable yes terday were decidedly meagre, aud only a few facts coaid be ascertained. A man by the name of Rasmussen, a foreman for Tuohy Bros., sub-contractors ander Keefei Green & Co., was the victim. It seems that the men under him were doing blasting in a cut and had charged a number of holes. One of tie charges failed to go off, and Rasmussen went back. Jnst as be got to where the shot had been placed the explo sion occurred, and he was killed by the fiy ing rock. A Butte undertaker has gone ont to bring in the remains. Deceased was well known in Montana railroad work. THE INDIANS AGAIN. A Double Murder Reported on the Flathead Reservation. Missoula, July 23.— [Special.]—It is reported that two half-breeds were killed on the reservation last Saturday by Indi ans and there is some excitement in this vicinity in conseqnence. Nothing definite is known except that more Indians than nsnal are seen moving about the Southern portion of the reserve. A few days ago Major Ronan disbanded the Indian police on account of disobedi ence of his orders and, if there is any trou* ble, the civil officers of Missoula county will probably be called on. Everything is quiet to-day and nothing is heard to con firm these disturbing rumors. The evils resulting from habitual costive ness are many and serious ; bat the use of harsh, drastic purgatives is quite as dan gerous. In Ayer's Pills, however, the patient has a mild bat effective aperient, superior to all others, especially for family nse. SUNSET COX. The New York Politician Passes Through Helena. Hou. S.S. Cox and wife arrived in Helena yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock by special train over the Northern Pacific, and re mained in the city nntil the arrival of the delayed west-bonnd train, upon which they went on to Portland. Mr. Cox has just finished a tour of the National Park, and on reaching Helena received the sad tidings of the death of bis sister and his annt, which occurred since he left home. He was mach grieved inconsequence and, insteed of stopping over at Helena to partake of the hcspitality that was about to be ex tended by our citizens, went right through to the coast. The few hours he spent in Helena yesterday with bis wife were divided between the hospitable homes of Major Maginnis aod Mr. C. F. Ellis, Mrs. Ellis being a cousin of Mr. Cox. OwiDg to the sad news that met the party at Helena they were entertained in the quietest pos sible manner and had few callers daring their brief stay. Mr. Cox, however, took occasion to say that he felt he had been misrepresented by the newspapers in regard to the object of his western trip. He bad come oat solely for pleasure and bad no thonght of politics in visiting Montana. Mr. and Mrs. Cox will spend two or three weeks on the coast and may revisit Helena on their retnrn trip, providing they decide to go east via the Northern Pacific. DE MOCRACY'S STRAITS. How Territorial Partisans are Com municating With the National Committee. A Helena correspondent of the Butte In ter Mountain telegraphed the following to his paper on Satnrday: There has been a good deal of suppressed excitement and dissatisfaction among the Démocrate of Helena on account of the presence of a Mr. R chardson, a member of the national committee from Iowa. He comes with power to send lor persons and pipers aod to make promises. The lead ing Democrats of Montana held two im portant conferences wuh him yesterday, at which he promised plenty of money and speakers to conduct the company next fall He is authorized by the Democratic Na tional committee to promise everything needed to manage the battle for free trade. He had a letter from Calvin S Brice certi fying to discretionary power in the matter. Snnset Cox will be hear to n ght and an effort is being made to tender him a recep tion in reward for his eleventh boar con version on the 8abject of Territorial ad mission. Upon the strength and preetige which each a reception wonld give him, he wonld agree to come back and stamp the Territory for free trade and the seven Dem ocratic aspirants for the Senate. Not Badly Hurt.

Knight, of Butta, relative to securing proper legislative action in iormnlating laws on irrigation and State supervision of the construction of dams and highway bridges, and suggesting the necessity of placing snch supervision under the control of professional and experienced engineers. After considerable discussion it was voted to appoint a committee to draft a suitable resolution to be presented to the constitu tional convention. The President ap pointed as snch committee Messrs. Sizer, Knight, DeLacy, 1 anse and Foss. A letter was read from Mr. George H. Robinson resigning the chairmanship of the committee on steam boiler inspection and also for the library committee.

This gives Marysville the championship of the Terri tory. PUBLIC LANDS. The committee on Public Lands in onr Convention, through Col. Callaway have recommended for adoption an article of two short sections, which if 'adopted will be worth hundreds of thousands and prob* ably millions of dollars to Montana. It provides for the retention of all lands given the State for educational purposes, not merely the common school lands, bat those granted for the School of Mines ^Normal schools, Agricultural colleges etc. And to answer the only valid objection to the leasing of snch lands, that the enabling act forbids leasing for more than five years, it is provided that the lands shall be leased under snch regulations as the Legislature shall prescribe, "not inconsistent with the laws of Congress at the time the same may be leased." This will cover the case fully and give an opportunity to apply to Con gress for a repeal of that provision for short leases. With this provision for leasing in preference to selling, Congress will gladly repeal the restriction so far as it applies to us. It will be assured that its bounty will never be wasted or lost, that onr lands will not be disposed of so far as they reach the $10 limit, bat retained for all time with all the enhancement that shall come from gen eral improvement, settlement, improved methods of cultivation and new discoveries of unsuspected resources. If we adopt this article of our constitu tion, and keep it there for all time, as sure as the world stands, the day will come when the school fund of Montana will ex ceed that of all the other Stat:s in the Union together. It will save ns millions that we should otherwise have to raise by taxation for these purposes. It is a small matter to erect bnildings and to furnish them, compared with the cost year after year of paying carrent ex penses for the best class of teachers and other expenses that more than buildings and farnitnre make institutions of learning. It is a hard matter for educational insti tutions to find safe and profitable invest ments for their fonds. Some are invested in railroad bonds and in rented bnildings liable to fluctuations and loss. The best investments that any of onr pnblic institu tions have are lands. Their rise in some instances have been fabulous, while depre ciation has been unknown. Some may say that the value of agricultural lauds will be exhausted by cultivation. This is only trat of shiftless and improvident cultiva tion. Lands that can be irrigated will never fail, any more than the valley of the Nile, enriched by annual mandations. Increase of population and wealth will insare a constant and rapid increase of the price of land. At present we only know and estimate the vaine of the surface of land. What lie beneath the surface and may be brought to light by future explorations none can tell. Every acre of land in the conntry is un derlaid, doubtless, with valuable deposits worth hundreds, perhaps thousands, of dollars. In some States single sections of what was once school land, and was sold for little, is to-day. worth as mach as the en tire Bchool fund of the State. Others that have wasted and lost the chief vaine of their land-grants had not the same warning of experience, bat we, looking over the experience of other States, and looking forward to the assured growth, wealth and power of this nation, of onr country, and our own portion of the coun try, will have no excase if we do not avoid the mistakes that others have irrecovera bly committed. OGDEN MILITARY INSTITUTE. While Helena was deliberating Ogden stepped in and secured the military insti tute that Prof. C. L. Howard would have preferred to establish here. Our people do not know what they have lost, and we congratulate Ogden on what we know they have secured—one of the best practical schools for training boys in the whole country. We have seen a plan of the building which is to be erected and which will be ready for occupation by the first of Sep tember. It will be three stories above the basement, with rooms for sixty students, besides day pupils. In the basement will be the dining room, kitchen, heating ap paratus, gymnasium aud and manual labor apartments. It is a joint stock company and promises good returns of the stockholders. The charge for tuition and board will be $500 a year. It will all be under military dis cipline and will prove as valuable for physical as for mental training. Prof. Howard will have for his principal assistant, Mr. Newill, a graduate cf Oxford, who has taught in Butte and is well known in Montana. We feel from our knowledge of the^men that the school will be a great and perma nent success. We should have had it in Helena, and shall always feel that a great mistake has been made in not retaining Prof. Howard. Bat we know of no part of the conntry where snch a school can ac complish more general good than in Utah. Prof. Howard will probably have many pupils from Montana. B. Major J. J. Palmer, who made the trip to Alaska recently with A. M. Thorn burg, brings back not only glowing ac counts of the pleasnre enjoyed in his thir teen days' residence in the elegant sbip qnartera, fishing for all sorts of sea-food and monsters, bnt he brings back a rich assort ment of trophies, carved totems of the na tives, and still more intereeting, natural production of the country. A very singu lar plant is one of broad, round leaves, growing rankly near the surface under the ferns, which goes by the name of "new mown hay." The dried plants smell pre cisely like fresh hay, and wonld easily im pose on a blind cow. It has a cooling effect in our hot, dry climate to view his photographs of glaciers and hear about the mighty icebergs that are constantly becom ing detached and falling into the sea with a roar like distant thonder. For a summer tour Alaska will be the favorite. JTNPREC F.DENTED ATTRACTION! Oyer n Million Distributed. Louisiana State Lottery Company.

To allay bronchial irritation and give immediate relief, the best medicine is Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. "I was recently troubled with a dry cou^h which seemed to be caused by an irritation in the throat. My physician prescribed for me, but no relief was ob tained. A little over a week ago, my attention being called to Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, 1 concluded to try it, and pur chased a bottle. After taking this med icine only one day, I could see a change for the better, and, by the time I hail used it a week, my cough had entirely disappeared." — H. \Y.
