They Entertain One of Their Pro
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.
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. __
Celestial Cooks Engage in Cleaver
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.

A Pleasant Home.
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

situated on a bluff iha- commands a view

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.
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:

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.
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
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 :
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

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

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

house where they may live in luxury,
health and comfort ; where the pleasure

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
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

boose, Harry Barber.
Beside these is an army of servants and
waiter?, who insure tbe best and most sat
isfatory service.
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
Small Pox at Grantsdale.
A letter from Grantsdale, Missonla coun

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
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." .

The Democracy of Choteau County
Meet and Make an Exhibition
of Harmony and Brotherly
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.
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.
