From the Dally Herald of August 26. EXETER BOYS. They Entertain One of Their Pro fessors. Accompanying James J. Hill, president of the Manitoba railroad, on his present trip to Montana, is Professor G. W. Went worth, of Phillips Academy, Exeter, New Hampshire, who is the well-known ex pounder of mathematics at that popular educational institution. Professor Went worth is a warm friend of Mr. Hill, whose children he has had as pupils. Mr. Hill and party went to Butte by special train on Saturday, returning to Helena on the same night. On the return trip they were niet at Bonlder by a party of Helena young men, who had been pnpils of Prof. Wentworth's, and took this opportunity to welcome their esteemed tntor to their mountain home. The par j com} prised the following: J. U. Sanders, W. E Sanders, Louis P. Sanders, Lee D. Word, Charles Word, Sam Kennett, Ed. O. Holter and E. W. Beattie, Jr. The boys were invited on board the special and cor dially welcomed by Prof. Wentworth and Mr. Hill, returning to Helena with them. Besides those mentioned John E. O'Con nor, Ben King, J. B. Wells. Austin Corbin and W. Murphy are all Exeter boys and were ready to join their school mates in tendering a reception to their honored tntor, bnt the plan had to be abandoned on account of the short stay made by the party in Heldna, Mr. Hill leaving by spec ial for the East yesterday morning. HIS "ENERGETIC FIST." M H. Keefe Floors a Pick ^pocket Who Stole His Purse. At Butte, Saturday, the crowd around the pool box were treated to an amateur mill in which M. H. Keefe, of Helena, vented his just indignation by a successful appeal to muscular force. Mr. Keefe had his eyes fixed on the pool seller when a atianger threw his arm around him and peered over his shoulder, pretending to be searching for a familiar face. A bystander, however, saw the stranger dexterously slip his hand into Mr. Keefe's pocket and abstract his pocket book. The operation took but a few sec onds and the stranger fell back with a disappointed look, and apologized for his action. Mr. Keefe, ' eing sig nalled by the man who had seen the slick theft, felt for his pocketbook and found it gone. He at once suspected the stranger and kept his eye on him until the latter attempted to sneak out of the crowd. Then Mr. Keefe nailed him, catching him by the neck and hammering his resent ment into his countenance by rapid blows. The straDger drew a revolver, but Mr. Keefe was too quick for him catching the hand that held the weapon before it could be leveled. He then pro ceeded to administer the sound thrashing the scoundrel deserved amidst the applause of all on-lookers After the stianger was disarmed he was searched and Mr. Keefe's pocket-book, containing $'450, was found on his person. The pick-pocket was then turned over to the police, who escorted him to jail. __ A CHINESE CHOP. Celestial Cooks Engage in Cleaver Practice. A quarrel yesterday among the Chinese cooks employed in the Capital Restaurant, Louis Smith, proprietor, resulted in an alternation, in which Sam On received several ngly cuts from a cleaver wielded by Jim Wab. The injuries inflicted were severe, bnt not necessarily dangeroas, the worst hurt beiDg a gash across the back of the neck. Ah Jim, who interfered and endeavored to separate the combatants, was to some extent injured by blows re ceived on his own body. All were arrested, Sam On, owing to his hacked condition, being placed in the bands of a doctor, and Jim Wah and Ah Sin finding quarters in the lock-up. The latter was subsequently released on the representation of Mr. Smith, who thought the peacemaker should not be punished UDjnstly.

Bozeman, August 26—[Special ]—The Gallatin county Democrats, in convention Saturday, led by Judge Luce, chairman, voted a nnanimons renomination of all the present Democratic officials of the county.

A Herald reporter recently paid a visit to the home of Mr. William Rogers, the Boulder valley stock-grower, which is located on the Bonlder river about twelve miles from Boulder City. Mr. Rogers has one of the finest among the many fiue ranches in the val ey. aud his home is in all respects a monel couuiry residence. His •irge and comfortable bouse is eligibly situated on a bluff iha- commands a view of the vallev tor miles around, and is sur rounded I.v'» weil kept lawn 'bat would do cremt io a Helena h me H's broad acre« trcimie a bu^ stretch or bottom laud covered with wo. ds and meadows besides a large area ot beucti land adapted either to crops or grazing His docks and herds rank with the n* st in the laud, while his bar. s. poultry y-rds and vege table and Iron gardens add completeness to the whole Just now Mr. Rogers is pre paring to drive his large herds of cattle and horses to some more favored raDge, as the feed in his vicinity is very scarce. He is a firm believer in winter leeding, and it is probably on account of his humane treatment of stock that his lossrs, even in the hardest winters, are the minimum. The Rogers homestead is always a pleasan place to visit and the hospitality extended by his estimable wife and daughter are such as to always leave the decartingguest under & sense of grateful obligation. From the Daily Herald of August 27. MOST MAGNIFICENT. Opening of the New Hotel Broadwater at the Helena Hot Springs. The First Dinner Served to an Excursion Party of Five Hundred from the City. We all know that "there is a boarding house not far away, ' etc., and to-day every body in Helena knows that there is a hotel in close proximity to the city where all the luxuries and comforts of a nineteenth century hostelry can be enjoyed with as much pleasure as at the noted public re sorts of metropolitan centres. The Hotel Broadwater is finished and opened for busi ness. Every body rejoices over the fact and every citizen of Helena feels like congratu lating every other citizen that the capital city at last has a hotel that it can be prond of. The opening took place yesterday evening and, as the comedian puts it, was "strictly business" in every sense. There was no formal celebration of the event nor any invitations from the man agement to attend the opening ; bnt attend Helena people did in force, and the way it was brought about was this : The Board of Trade and the City Council, feeling that Col. Broadwater's enterprise was deserving of some demonstration of appreciation, re solved to make np an excursion to attend the opening of the new hotel. Arrange ments were made with the motor line to that end, and accordingly abont four hun dred people went oat by that road last evening. About a hundred more went in carriages, tbe stream of visitors flowing in from four o'clock nntil after nine. The new hotel was brilliantly lighted and thrown open from tower to basement for the inspection of the gnests. DINNER WAS SERVED from 6 o'clock until 10, and it took all of that time for tbe hundreds of guests to par take of the sumptuous repast. The meal was set forth on countless tables arrayed in spotless damask and glittering with the display of silver and crystal. Gnests were seated in the main ordinary and the two ladies' dining roomB on either side, so that fully one hundred and fifty people were served at one time. Tbe dining room force is composed of colored waiters, who went expertly abont their task, attired in fall dress suits. Tbe menu was excellent and was as follows: Hotel Broadwater. SOUPS. Puree of Cauliflower. Printanier Royale FISH. Boiled Salmon, Sauce Hollandaise, Potatoes a la Anglaise. ENTREES. Tenderloin of Beef with Mushrooms, Spring Chicken, Saute a la Creole. Catelettte de veal, aux fine herbes Currie of Lamb with Rice, Baked Macaroni, aux Parmesan, Queen Fritters, a la Vanilla ROASTS. Spring Lamb, Mint Sauce. Ribs of Prime Beef, Turkey, Qiblet Sauce COLD. Ham, Beef. Chicken, ToDgue, Chicken Salad. VEGETABLES. Boiled Potatoes, Mashed Potatoes. Baked Sweet Potatoes, Green Corn, Cauliflower, New Squash, String Beans, Mashed Turnips DESSERT. Pudding, a la Rhine, Lemon Sauce, Green Gage Pie, Marrow Squash Pie Gateaux Assortis, Vanilla Ice Cream, Maraschina Jelly, Fruit, Dried Fruit, C offee. Crackers, Cheese. August 26, 1889. At many tables wines were an accom paniment of the repast, and many a dainty band raised a glass to the health of Col. Broadwater and the success of his magnifi cent hotel. AFTER DINNER the visitors spiead themselves through the hotel to Bee and enjoy the magnificent ap pointments. The spacions porticos in front of the hotel were thronged for the balance of the stay, ladies and gentlemen either promenading or sitting on the balconies en joying the cool evening air and the mnsic of the Capital City Band, which discoursed beantifnl selections at frequent intervals. The visitors also made the tour of the hotel, admiring its manifold beauties, revelling in delightful contemplation of lovely etch ings and engravings, and enjoying the lux urious surroundings of corridors and apart ments, which are famished with elegant carpets, Turkish rags and tapestries, hard wood finishings and fnrniture of polished mahogany, oak, cherry, walnnt and other fine woods. After viewing these interior beauties ander the brilliant light of myriads of incandescent lamps, not forget ting to pay a visit to the bathrooms, where porcelein tubs that cost over $200 apiece and soft rugs invite oriental luxary, the guests assembled in tbe office rotunda, where an MPROMPTU MEETING was held. Postmaster Cards called tbe meeting to order and Dominated Mr. E. W. Knight for president. He wae unanimous ly elected and accepted the post of honor with a few appropriate remarks. Mayor Fuller was then called upon and spoke as follows: Gentlemen : We are assembled to inspect the magDificent resort which Mr. Charles A Broadwater has added to the attractions of Helena We have lound it a splendid Btrncture, commodious in its arrangèments and complete and elegant in its appoint ments, lacking nothing to secnre the com fort or gratify the tastes of its gnests The bath, with its vast proportions and sumptu ous equipment, is calculated to make cleanliness a temptation as well as a duty next alter godliness. I believe that I ex press the sense of all who have partici pated in this occasion when I say that the city of Helena is under great obligations to Col Broadwater for that spirit of enter prise and loyalty to the interests of tbe C'ty which bas actuated him in constrnct ijg this palatial hotel and natatorium, which cannot fail to spread the renown of Helena throughout the Union. In addi tion to the substantial returns which it will secnre to him, he will realize a farther reward in the enduring gratitude of his fellow citizens. Hon. T. H Carter then delivered an ad dress in re-ponse to nrgeDt calls He spoke in glowing terms of tbe magnificence of tbe new retort and paid a handsome com pliment to Col. Broadwater's enterprise. Col. W. F. Sanders was then called for and in eloquent periods expressed bis sen timents on the happy occasion. Both were loudly applauded. Major R. C. Walker, Secretary of the Board of Trade, made a few remarks and then introduced the lollowiDg resola tions, which were unanimously adopted : THE RESOLUTIONS. Whereas, We have witnessed the gor geons spectacle of the illumination of this beantifnl hotel by electricity and beheld tbe triumphs of science and genius in the grand appointments of its modern apart ments, capable of accommodating hundreds of gnests. And whereas the hotel is con nected with the largest natatorium in the world, whose natural hot and cold waters are medicated with a true elixir of life and tumble in numerous cascades over native rocks from gashing fountains in the moun tains into a mammoth basin or plonge bath of vast proportions, all under cover of elass wood and iron, where exotics bloom and mingle their fragrance with th« music of the rustic scene, sorronoded by a park of macadamized walks and roads, with shade trees, plants, flowers and ionntains; and Whereas, This hotel and natatorinm have been constructed at a cost of over $300,000 by the enterprising and munifi cent efforts of Col. Charles A. Broadwater, who should be tendered the fall meed of praise for this grand public resort and acquisition to the city of Helena; there fore be it Resolved, By the Helena Board of Trade and the citizens assembled that we hereby inaugurate this magnificent caravansary and pleasure resort as the "Hotel Broad water," a fitting monument to the eminent projector, whose name is also dedicated at tbe same time with what be has bnilded, in fall significance as a public benefactor Resolved , That we hereby extend the hearty thanks of all to Col. Charles A. Broadwater for his appropriate conception of a pnblic resort that would be an orna ment and honor to any city in tbe world, and tor his executive ability in completing tbe same without regard to expense, so as to conserve the taste and requirements of modern public institutions. Resolved , That the Hotel Broadwater now opened to the pnblic be hereby recom mended to the families of oar citizens as a house where they may live in luxury, health and comfort ; where the pleasure seeker, tourist and invalid may enjoy a charmed life ander tbe vivifying influences of Montana's glorious climate peculiar only to the Rocky mountains. After this the meeting adjourned and the company dispersed for theii homes, many however, remaining for the night at the hotel. The last motor train left the hotel after midnight. The gnests included the most prominent people of Helena, the male contingent being offset by a large number of ladies. Among those present were noticed all the members of the City Council and their families, besides several hundred of the Board of Trade with their wives and chil dren. Mrs. C. A. Broadwater, Mrs. Chnm asero and Miss Nettie ChnmaBero received the visitors on behalf of Col. Broadwater, who was absent at the Anaconda con vention. The office force of the hotel is beaded by Col. James Carroll, manager, who is a veteran in tbe hotel business. In tbe culinary department Monsieur Caron is chief; assistants, Chamard and Merrill; pastry cook, C. Klein; assistant cooks, Mrs. KleiD, Fred. Adrian and Andrew Merrieux; matron, Mrs. Canning ham; superintendent in charge of tbe bath boose, Harry Barber. Beside these is an army of servants and waiter?, who insure tbe best and most sat isfatory service. BUILT IN A YEAR. Ground was broken for this immense es tablishment jnst a year ago this month. The hotel, a three story frame on the cot tage plan with sweeping porticos on the south front, was designed by Herman Kemna, Wallace & Thornburgh's architect, and was bnilt by that firm, as was also the mammoth plunge bath, which, however, was planned by Architects Paulsen & Mc Connell. Messrs. Wallace and Thornburgh deserve great credit for their expeditions and satisfactory work. It was a Her culean task for any one firm, bnt they have shown themselves equal to it and in their achievement will reap all the glory that pertains to the suc cessful consummation of one of the largest building enterprises in tbe Northwest. Nearly all the timber used was imported from Oregon and Minnesota and tbe hard wood finishings of the hotel were supplied by the factory of McGlauflin & BnrfeniDg of Anoka, Minn. Lack of space to day prevents any attempt at a description of the magnificent bnildiDgs. More Smoke. The wind from the southwest to-day brought with it a heavy volnme of Bmoke from the fires raging on the main range near Rimini, and by 3 o'clock tbe sky above the western horizon was ob cared by the dense vapors to snch an extent that gas had to be lighted in all stores and offices. As we go to press the city presents the ap pearance of a town in the path of a total eclipse of the snn at the time of obscura tion. Small Pox at Grantsdale. A letter from Grantsdale, Missonla coun ty, just received in Helena, says that three more cases of small pox have broken out there and that the last reported makes the fourth new case in ten days.

A Crisis in His Long Illness Which May End Fatally. Many Montanians, who pleasantly re member both his private and pnblic life in Montana, will regret to learn that Colonel Wiley S. Scribner is critically ill at his home in Chicago. Col. Scribner is Recorder of Cook county, 111., a very important and responsible office, to which he was first elected five years ago and to which he was re-elected in 1888 for an additional term of fonr years. His malady is of the heart, in many respects not nnlike that which cansed the death of Gen. Sheridan. Re ferring to his condition the Chicago Mail of the 24th says: That the danger is imminent was evi denced this morning, when by orders of Col. Scribner, Dr. J. H. Wainwright was superseded by his life-long friend, W. S. Kaufman, as chief clerk and Edward Plow man took charge of tbe abstract depart ment. In case of Col. Scribner's death Mr. Kaufman will protect Mrs. Scribner's in terests nntil an election is had to fill the vacancy. Col. Scribner has for the past two years been a confirmed invalid, only being able to appear at his office at the best semi weekly. Abont fonr months ago he took a trip to Florida, and when he returned seemed to be mnch improved. Bnt the agitation of the congratulations that wel comed him home sent him back to his sick bed, where he now lies. He has not been able to be at his office for over two months past. "Politics, pure and simple—just old time politics—has a heap to do with tbe changes in the Recorder's office," said a prominent West-side Republican politician. "The size of the matter is simply this: Chief Clerk Wainwright has been disposing of the political garments of Recorder Scribner—standing, like the impeennions son at the death-bed of the father, all tbe time guessing jnst what size of fortnne the dying man would leave. Mr. Wainwright has been au open aDd above-board candi date for Recorder since it became apparent that ColoLel Scribner could not live bis fonr-year term ont. He even went so far as to promise the farm ing ont of tbe vast patronage of tbe office. Now. tbeD,jnBtpnt a mark here, right at this statement: John M. Smyth and Chris. Marner are i redited with being wide awake politicians and the new chief clerk is their protege. Mrs. Scribner, who has been practically in charge of tbe office since her hnBband has been unable to at tend to bis duties, is protecting her own interests and the interest of her daughter. The result is that Mr. Kaufman, tbe new chief clerk, has entered into an agreement with Mrs. Scribner to divide the salary of the office with her in the event of Col. Scribner's death, and he (Kaufman) is elected to the office to continue to divide the salary for the time Col. Scribner would have served if he lived. In this way Messrs. Smyth and Marner strengthen their hold on the party lines, and nothing bnt even j nstice is accorded Mrs. Scribner and her child." . Committee Headquarters. The State Republican Committee (A. J. Seligman, chairman,) occupy rooms on the second floor of the Pacific Hotel, Main street, opposite Odd Fellows Hall. Tbe county Republican Committee (T. H. Kleinschmidt, chairman,) have quarters in the Novelty block, Main street, above Broadway. Both committees have tbe Republican colors floating to tbe breeze above the street—the glorious old flags under which tbe campaign was fongbt and victory won a year ago. Another Notion. (New York Herald 1 Horse dealers Dave a noiiou that for pre serving health aod promoting longevity s: able odors are far more efficacious than the newly discovered elixir of Dr Browu Sequard. The condition of some of the owners seems to justify tbeir faith. Messrs. Oakky & Smith, the well known East Twenty-fourth street dealers, are lespec tively seventy eight and seventy-six years old, but the owners are mnch spryer than men at fifty, and they seem likely to re main at the old stand for many years to come. Mr. Oakley says he has a son who at seventeen was weak and pnny and seemed likely to go into a decline. Instead of sending him to the West Indies or Ber muda Mr. Oakley pnt him in charge of a stable, and in a few months he developed an appetite that would do credit to a prize fighter, and had thoroughly regained his health. Ten years ago there came to Mr. I. H. Dahlman's stables a man who was appar ently in the last stages of consomption, and who was merely walking around to save funeral expenses. He was told that it would do him good to "hang around" tbe stables. He is not dead yet, and "hangs around" regularly whenever the weather is fine. A GREAT MORAL SHOW. The Democracy of Choteau County Meet and Make an Exhibition of Harmony and Brotherly Love. Fort Benton, August 24.— [Special cor respondeuce of tbe Herald.] —When the Democrat c majority of the Constitutional Convention resolved on a new deal for county offices in order to displace the Re publicans elected last fall, it was generally understood that such Democrats as were holding office would be favored with re nomination for another term. This antici pation has not been realized by certain Democratic officials of Chotean county, and there is much internal strife in the camp of the great unwashed in conse quence. The Democratic convention lately ht Id in this city developed a few features of a specially harmonious nature, which will be of interest to those who regard C dean county Democrats as possessing superior attributes of brotherly love. A new high priest has arisen amongst the connty Democracy, and the contest between the powers that be and tbe powers that were promises to resalt in dissensions so serions as to imperil the success of the whole ticket. The new high priest is a somewhat recent convert to the Democratic faith, having unsuccessfully run for office on the Republican ticket some four years ago, bnt be obtained fall possession of the late convention in spite of strenuous efforts on tbe part of the old time bosses. A motley crowd of delegates was ran in from precincts along the railroad and other dis tant points ; and matters were conducted in so loose a fashion that several were seated in the convention without authentic credentials. One delegate was arrested daring the convention for having forged signatures to his credentials, and it is claimed that others were present with documents endorsed in a similar manner. The chairman, from the Little Rockies, had his seat contested on the ground that he resided about twenty miles from the precinct which he claimed to represent ; bnt on the explanation that Little Rocky precinct covered an area of 400 square miles, his claim was dnly recognized. Tbe convention resolved itself into two opposing factions, the new leader being backed by abont 19 votes, and the old dis pensation trying to make a stand-off with 17. There was much skirmishing for wind during the opening hoars of the conven tion, and the slate was ultimately made np by the new leader making a few ineignifi cent concessions to the minority. Bnt the proceedings themselves were a whole circus to the onlookers. The chairman had evi dently held a similar position before, pre sumably in the backwoods settlements of Michigan or some snch place, and had his own ideal of the dignity pertaining to his office. Tbe grace with which he recognized the "gentleman from Chinook," or the "member from Conrad," was especially ap preciated by ail except tbe nnlncky vic tims. His rulings would be regarded as somewhat remarkable, were it not an evi dent fact that he was the tool of the fac tion which placed him in the chair. Nominations were rnshed through in snch haste that one candidate was re ceiving congratulations on hi« nomination to an office which on a call for a second ballot went to another. Written ballots were throat into the hands of delegates, who were marched np to vote by trnsty and experienced herders. The entire pro ceedings were marked by an utter disre gard for any interest except to farther the plans laid ont by the new dispensation. The old standbys of the Democracy were ignored, and some of the old office-holders incontinently bonneed. This is not condu cive to good feeling, or a nnanimons sup port of the ticket To report the whole proceedings would occupy too much space, bnt there is a moral attached to this matter which will be of interest to the Hanser wing of tbe Democracy. Tbe convention was controlled by the railroad vote, and nominations for Choteau connty's Representatives in the State Legislature were carried by that fac tion. An outsider would be inclined to look npon the matter as mainly a scramble for county office, in which the new high priest will need all the help he can get. Bnt back of this appears to be something which may have some effect npon the choice for United States Senators, as the only qualification of the Legislative nomi nees is that they are Broadwater men. There is evidently somebody behind the scenes pulling the wires, while the new high priest oi the Chotean county Democ racy does the great dancing act. Sufferers from indigestion, loss of appe tite, liver or kidney complaints, rheuma tism or neara'gia, would do well to give Ayer's Sarsaparilla a trial. For all snch disorders, no medicine is so effective as this, when faithfully and perseveringly used. KILLED ON THE TRACK. John Green Run Over by a Montana Union Train. Butte, August 28. —[Special.]—As train No. 106 of the Montana Union, from Ana conda, was approaching the city, yesterday afternoon, it struck and killed a man who was walking on the track and towards the engine, a short distance west of the Colo rado Bmelter. As soon as possible the train was stopped and backed to where the accident occurred and the body was found lying alongside of the track. The remains were placed in the baggage car and brought to the depot at South Batte. The inqaes t developed that deceased alone was to blame for his death, having paid no atten tion to the whistle and bell sounded by the engineer, nor to the calls of one of the teamsters who saw and warned him of his danger. It was proven that he left tbe track once and then immediately got back on to it, and when directly in the center, walked towards the train without looking np until the engine was in front of him, when too late for him to escape. Those who witnessed the accident, as well as all who heard tbe testimony at the iDqnest, are of the opinion that it was not an acci dent, bnt a clear case of suicide. Fioui papers found on the body it was learned that the man's name was John Green and that he had been in the employ of Green & Keefe. Saratoga Races.
