Fred Ault, of Galveston. Commits Suicide
To-Day at the Grand Oentrhl.
About to be Arrested he Shoots Himself to
Escane the Law.
Fred. Ault, registered at the Grand Cen
tral from Galveston, Texas, committed
suicide in his room at that hotel at 2
o'clock this alternoon by shooting himself
through the heart with a 38 calibre revol
ver. Pat. Ryan, an employe of the hotel,
was told by Detective Walters to watch
Ault as he was alraid he contemplated
suicide. Ryan went to Ault's room, No.
12, an inside apartment on^the second floor
with one window opening into the hall,
and lound the door locked. Police Officer
Roddick, who had been sent up by Detec
tive Walters, then arrived and together he
and Ryan again demanded admittance.
There Oeing no answer they raised the
window to effect an entrance, and as they
did so heard a shot i:i the room.
On entering they found Ault stretched on
the bed with his clothes on, his right
hand clutching a smoking revolver, resting
on his breast. A few convulsive movements
of the legs were all the motions lie made
alter the shooting. He had shot hiuiseil
directly through the heart and death was
instantaneous. Ct roner Rock man at once
empanelled a jury consisting of C. P. Van
Wart, W. F. Wheeler, L. E. Lansmg C. C
Stubbs, W. W. Brown and John Phillips,
and had the body removed to the morgue,
where an inquest was liegun at 3 o'clock.
Suspicious looking powders, taid to contain
morphine, were found on the body.
Ault was a young man probably 26 years
old, rrther tall, very thin with sunken
cheeks, hallow eyes, light brown hair
and a faint moustache of the
same shade. He came here first on
November 2 He registered from Galveston,
but claimed to represent a tea and spue
house in Denver, which bas a branch m
Butte. His mission here, he said, was to
establish a branch store in Helena. He
gambled heavily while here, playing faro
and poker steadily. Friday he drew a
check for $150 on the Montana National
bank and got Mr. Tamkin, of Tamkm &
Koldrup. to cash it. He also pa-sed a
check for $110 on "Little Harry Other
checks are also out. They were all worth
less. Anlt having no money whatever in
hank. This fact was discovered to-day,
and it is probable that Ault knew that the
officers were after him, and having no hope
of clearing himself took his life, waiting
until the policeman was at his door before
firing the fatal shot.
BERT'S BEAR.
Bert Monroe and Friends Bring in a
Wagon Load of Big Game from
Across the Missouri.
Saturday afteruoou at 4 o'clock a novel
looking wagon drove up to Blake's meat
market, on lower Main street, and quickly
attracted a crowd of curious onlookers. The
wagon was loaded to its capacity with
game and manned by Beit Monroe, H. B.
Lyman, H. E. Gleason, Frank Melngin and
Amos Melngin, a party of yonng men who
had just returned from a successful hunt
across the Missouri river. The load con
sisted of one black hear, four black-tailed
deer and a few dozen grouse. The bear
was with some difficulty removed lrom the
wagon and hang ap on stout hooks in the
butcher shop, where for two hoars his fat
carcase was poked, fingered, examined and
"smelled" by curious citizens. The animal
was killed in the mountai s between Mag
pie gulch and Trout creek by Bert Monroe
who handled Don Davenport's 45-75 rifle.
For some weeks the four-footed marauder
had been troubling the settlers in the
vicinity anc only a few days before he was
shot had kil.td and devoured a yonng cow.
A spring-gun was set for him the next
night, but it had been aimed tco low and,
though Brain visited it and palled the
bait, the shot merely wounded him. Blood
from his wound, however, left a
sure trail, and the next day Bert Monroe
and his friends started out to follow the
bloody track 1 After traveling about five
miles Bert came onto the bear, and fired at
him from a distance of about one hundred
yards. The shot was well directed and
enraged the animal, which turned on his
pursuer. Bert, however, did not allow him
to approach very near, and with admirable
coolness took another steady aim and
dropped Bruin in his tracks. This shot
was fired over a range of about eighty yards,
and the bullet struck right below the left
eye. It was an excellent shot, considering
the circumstances. Few men would have
the nerve to stand and plant a ball with
such precision when the target happens to
be a mad bear coming straight at the hun
ter. It was a feat worth boasting of. Bert
maintains that his bearship is a grizzly,
but opinions differ on that subject, some
boldmg that it is a cinnamon and others
that it is merely a large specimen of the
black variety. At all events it is a good
sized animal, weighing 400 pounds and be
ing nearly eight feet long.
A photograph of the party and their
noble game was taken before the wagon
was unloaded.

CHANGING OFFICE.
The New Auditor Takes Hold—Other
T ransfers.
This morning Major E. A. Kinney, the
newly elected State Auditor, took posses
sion of his office, having taken the oath
and filed his bond yesterday. Ex-Auditor
Sullivan made a formal transfer of the
records and accounts of the office besides
inducting his successor into the routine
and duties thereof. The new Auditor
comes in with the prestige of a long and
honorable business career and the endorse
ment of a large majority of the people of
Montana, which insures an honest and
capable administration of the office ; while
the Territorial auditor retires with the best
wishes of onr citizens, leaving behind
him a record of official duties honestly
and well performed. Mr. Sullivan's term
covered an important epoch in Territorial
history, the famous ground squirrel law
beiDg one of the measures that bled the
treasury during his tenure of office. Heving
to draw all the warrants for squirrel kill
ing, be soon saw what such a bounty would
lead to and, through his efforts, the case was
brought before the proper authorities and
a repeal of the obnoxious meas
ure secured We understand Aud
itor Kinney finds his accounts
correct to a cent, and the office in a
thorough business like shape. Mr. Hulli
van will probably soon go into active bust
ness in Helena.
Hon. W. J. Kennedy yesterday qualified
as clerk of the Supreme Court of tue State
and has entered upon his duties, succeed
ing Mr. Lee Word, wao has lor oometime
held the position under the Territorial
court. Mr. Word retires with the good
wishes of the bar and all who have,
had occasion to visit his office
as he has ever been faithful in the dis
charge of his duties and courteous to all
who came in contact with him. His suc
cessor will make an earnest and honest
official. Mr. Kennedy is an old-timer of
Missoula county and has ofteu served flie
people in an official capacity, his last work
being in assisting to frame the constitution
under which Montana is now living. He
polled the largest majority on the iState
ticket at the recent election—an index of
his popularity.
The only other State offices yet unfilled
are ihe Attorney General, one Associate
Justice, State Treasurer and ^superintendent
of Public Instruction. Hon. E. N. Har
wood has taken the oath as Associate Jus
tice. His colleague, Judge W. H. DeWitt,
is still absent m the East. Attorney Gen
eral Haskell and State Treasurer Hickman
are expected to reach the Capital to-day.
Mr. Gaonou the Superintendent of Public
Instruction, is at Anaconda, and it is not
known whether be has yet qualified.
Another < hange tooke place in District
Clerk Bean's office to day, Mr. J. A. Carter
succeeding Mr. Leon EaCroix as special
deputy acd assisting Mr. Bean in making
up tur calendar. The reason for the change
is that Mr. EaCroix was this morning ap
pointed private secretary to the Governor
by Governor Toole.
No change will take place in the office
of county superintendent of schools until
after the county teachers institute, to be
held here this week, over which Miss
Clarke, the retiring superintendent, who has
given tbe matter a great deal of attention,
will preside. Miss Turnley, the superin
tendent-elect, is in no haste to take office,
and both she and Miss Clarke have agreed
that the latter shall hold over until after
the institute
Mr. Charles Gros assumed his duties as
official stenographer of the District Court,
relieving C. B. NolaD, who becomes County
Attorney, succeeding Mr. Balliet.
HIS NAM?WAS BELL.
Result of the Coroner's Inquest on
Yesterday's Suicide.
The result of the inquest held by Coro
ner Rockman, yesterday, on the remains of
Fied Ault, who suicided at the Grand Cen
tral hotel, cleared up the mystery attend
ing the tragedy. A uo'e book had been
found on the bed in the room occupied*by
Ault, and in it was written the following :
"Tuis rash act is the result of whisky
and a woman. My real name is W. R.
Bell. Frank Archer, of Denver, is the man
whom, aB a friend aud companion, I intro
duced to my family. The result was to
find a loving wife and him in a compro
mising position, but her love for him,
clothes and money was too much for her.
I went to Denver with the intention —*
The only regret of my life is that I did not
kill them both."
This was written in a clear, firm hand,
and was evideutlv noted down just before
the fatal shot was fired, and while the offi
cers were waiting for Ault to open the door
of his room. After hearing all the evidence
the jury returned a verdict of death from a
pistol shot fired with suicidal intent. The
body was then turned over to the under
taker and the jury adjourned.
The remains of the unfortunate were
interred this afternoon at the county's ex
pense, the deceased having left nothing to
defray the cost of his funeral. The only
thing of value found in his effects was a
pawn check for $15, representing a gold
pen and umbrella, which are in pawn in
Uncle Sam's loan office. Coroner Rockman
will write to Denver to apprize his rela
tions, if they can be found, of his sad end
and the disposition of his remains.
The Last Official Act.
The last official act of ex-Governor White
was the exercise of executive clemency in
the pardon ot Joseph Walters, who was
sentenced in the district court of Beaver
head conntv, last April, to a year's impris
onincDt in tbe penitentiary. The outgoing
Governor's last entry on the minutes of the
office is as follows:
The proclamation of the President of the
United States admitting Montana as a
State in the Union, having been issued on
this 7ih day of November. A. D. 1889, at
10:40 a. m . and Jos. K. Toole having been
duly declared elected as Governor of the
State ol Montana under the provisions ot
the State Constitntiop,and having qualified
as Governor by taking the oath of office as
required by law, my term of office expires
hv limitation. God bless the Common
wealth of Montana

Charles Albrecht, who has been ill for
some months, part of the time confined to
his house, has recently been reduced in
strength and his condition is now qnite
serions. Hia malady is rheumatism of the
heart, and it is feared his lease of life is
short. Mr. Albrecht is an old time and
highly respected citizen, a member of the
A. O ü. W., Knights of Pythias, Grand
Army, etc. Many friends are solicitons for
his recovery, but there is little hope that
he can survive many days.

SERENADED.
Gov.Toole Complimented by the Band
and Presented with a Portrait
by Citizens.
Yesterday afternoon the corridors of the
court house resounded with sweet strains
of music for an hour or more, and this
interruption to the business of the great
building was due to a serenade tendered
Governor Toole by the Capital City hand.
The Governor's office was filled with citi
zens at the time, who bad assembled with
another object, that of presenting to the
new Executive a tine oil portrait of him
self. After the hand had finished plying,
the portrait was brought in and placed up
on the Governor's table, the incident being
the signal for a burst of applanse from the
assembled company. Col. Cnrtis introduced
Hon. R. B. Smith, who was received with
applause. Mr. Smith addreestd the Gover
nor and in cordial and well chosen phrases
presented him with the portrait as a gift
from his Helena friends.
Governor T 00 I 9 accepted the handsome
donation and expressed his thanks in tue
following manner:
Fellow Citizens and Friends :—I thank
yon most cordially lor this splendid presen
tation. I am not conscious that I was
ever a s good looking as that portrait [Ap
planse ] Some of my Republican friends
in the State have alway s insisted on mak
ing my personal appearance an issue in
every campaign in which I have been a
partipant. [Applause! As I look upon
your elegant gift and discover how it flat
ters me, I find some cause for regret that
it was not on exhibition sooner. [Ap
plause.] Popular as my friend Commo
dore Power is that portrait would have
been elected without oppo9itu>u [loud ap
plause] and I would have been s»ved a
hard campaign, in which I made some
poor speeches, smoked a great many bad
cigars and drank a great deal of alkali
water. [Laughter and cheers.] It would
he in had taste to criticise your gift and I
suppose I ought to forbear, but I cannot.
I have ore criticism to make. If that
caDvass, in«tead of containing my
portrait, had transferred upon it
your pleasing laces, ever to remind me ot
your generous hearts and devoted friend
ship 1 think I would be better pleased.
(Applause.) But of coarse I understand
that your compliment is not so mach to
me personally' as to the high office which I
have the* honor to fill I accept y onr
splendid gift so gracefully presented with
the best wishes for yon all, aud I only re
gret that time, place aud circumstances rio
not permit me to pass around 'a little
something to sustain nature.' (Applause.)
I hope some time the occasion may present
when my lriends can be accorded a more
hospitable reception. Until then yon must
be content with my sincere thanks and
best wishes for your success and prosperity
(Load and continued applause).
'T am informed that the serenade ten
dered by the silver cornet band on this oc
casion is independent of these ceremonies
and intended as their compliments. I
thank them collectively and individually
for the sweet music, for which they are
justly famous" (applause).
After he had concluded, those present
stepped forward and shook hands with the
Governor, who had a cordial greeting for
each. The cigars were then passed around,
and the company dispersed to the music of
the band. For an impromptu affair the
occasion was one of the pleasantest social
events we have ever chronicled. The large
attendance on such slight notice and the
enthusiasm manifested are evidences of the
popularity of our new Governor.
A CHECK PASSER.
W. E. Blake Raises Some Money by
Cashing Worthless Checks.
A warrant is oat for the arrest of W. E
Blake, an probably by the time this issue
of the Herald reaches our readers he will
be in the hands of tlie officers of the law.
The charge against Blake is that of obtain
ing money ander false pretenses, and from
the stories that are afloat on the streets to
day it seems that the charge is well
grounded. Blake is or was a drummer for
a St. Paul dry goods house, and has been in
and about Helena for over a year. Within
the past few days he has had several drafts
and checks cashed at places where he is
known, aud it now turns oat that the
papers are utterly worthless. He made a
few purchases at Raleigh & Clarke's
store the other day, and tendered
in payment a draft on the First National
bank for $50. Raleigh & Clarke cashed
the draft and gave him the change, tmt on
presenting the paper at the hank found ont
that Blake had no money there and that
the draft was worth nothing. It has since
transpired that Blake has victimized other
firms in the same way, among the number
being Gans & Klein and the Montana Cen
tral ticket office. It is aleo said that he
cashed a $60 draft in Missoula a few days
ago that has since been proven worthless.
Blake has lived with his family near the
Northern Pacific depot and, unless he has
already taken fright aud left town, will he
arrested this afternoon.
Death of Charles Albrecht.
The illness ot Charles Albrecht terminat
ed in death at 5 o'clock p. m. yesterday.
During the past several day his malady
(rheumatism of the heart) assumed a more
serious aspect, of which the patient was
folly conscious, and a few hoars before the
end, in the hearing of the Herald editor
and other friends gathered about his bed
side, he spoke to Mrs. Albrecht, saying he
coaid live bnt a little while longer. Mr.
Albrecht was an old time resident of
Helena, a business man of Dearly twenty
years standing, and highly respected by a
wide circle of friends and acquaintances. He
was one of the charter members of Myrtle
Lodge No. 3 Kaights of Pythias, as also of
the Ancient Order of United Workmen and
Gesang Verein, and a comrade of Wads
porth Post No. 3, Grand Army ot the Re
public The funeral, appointed to take
place from the family residence, corner of
Lawreuce street and Dearborn avenue, at 2
o'clock, Thursday, the 14th, will be
attended by the several societies and orders
named, the burial ceremonies being iD
charge of the Knights of Pythias, partici
pât* d in, perhaps, by the Grand Arrnj.
Tne remains will be deposited in the
Helena cemetery, within the city, where
the sepulchre was arranged for to day.

THE NEW UNIVERSITY.
A Brilliant Reception to the President
of the New Educational Insti
tution at Helena.
In response to card invitations a large
number of lades and gentlemen of Helena
attended the reception to Dr. F P Tower at
St. Paul's M. E. Church last evening, the
attendance being larger than was expected
considering the inclemency of the weather.
By eight o'clock the church was nearly
tilled, and soon after the exercis e were
opened by the singiog ot a hymn by the
audience. Reading of the Scriptures aud
prayer were then made by Rev. Shannon,
of Bozeman. Letters of regret from Gov
ernor Toole and Lieutenant Gov
ernor Rickards were read, after
which Col. W. F. Sanders, President
of the Board of Trustees of the
Montana University, made the opeaing ad
dress. Col. Sanders spoke in his usually
happy veiD, and in behalf ot the people of
Helena extended a welcome to Dr. Tower.
He then dwelt upon the importance of
higher education, detailed the history of
the origin and building of the Montana
University aud predicted tor it a prosper
ous future
Professor May then entertained the
auditnee with a finely executed selection
on the organ.
Rev. F. D. Kelsey, of the Congregational
church, made an address welcoming Dr.
Tower to the ministerial fold of Montana.
Mr. Kelsey's words were cordial and his re
marks eminently fi ting.
In »he absence of Rev. F. A Riggin, Rev.
Dr. Raleigh, of St. Paul's M. E. Church,
greeted Dr. Tower on behaii of the Montana
Conference, and extended him a hearty
welcome. Dr. Raleigh closed with a few
remarks concerning the new university,
which he said was to be a non sectarian
institution.
A vocal solo by Mr. H. E Jackson, which
was well rendered, next called forth ex
pressions of pleasure from the audience.
The guest of the evening, Dr. Tower,
theD addressed the audience. He returned
his thanks for the warm welcome extended
him and also to the people of Helena who
bad contributed to the university fund.
He spoke of the character of the in
stitution and touched upon the advan
tages that, would accrue to Helena from the
presence of such a university. The
Reverend Doctor delivered an eloquent
discourse and made a most favorable im
pression upon his hearers, who were atten
tive and interested throughout his address
Rev. Mr. Hall then brought the exer
cises to a close by pronouncing a benedic
tion, after which the audience repaired to
Dr. Raleigh's parlors, where they were
afforded the opportunity to meet aud taD
with President Tower.
Tbe affair throughout was one of the
most notable events of the kind that ever
transpired in Helena, and from the charac
ter of the participants and the interest
manifested, it is evident that the estab
lishment of the Montana U.iversity is a
project which the people of Helena will
endorse and encourage.
WHO WAS THE JUDGE?
Venneday's Lawyers Claim he Was
Illegally Sentenced by Judge
DeWolfe.
Attorney F. W. Cole, of Butte, yester
day filed with the clerk of the supreme
court an application for a writ of habeas
cerpus in the case of the People vs. W. H.
Venneday, the express agent of Anaconda,
who was recently convicted of misappro
priating funds and sentenced by Jadge De
Wolfe to one year in the penitentiary.
This tarn in the case is dne to the judge
ship complication in Silver Bow county.
The application for the writ sets forth:
On Friday, November 8, ^889, Stachen
DeWolfe. presiding judge of the second
judicial district court, reconvened the ses
sion of court at 1 o'clock. The Venneday
cause had been or daring the morning
session. At 1 o'clock p. m. the case was
temporarily set aside to hear the argument
foi appeal in the mandamus case. At 2
o'clock the Venneday case came up, bnt just
about that time J. J. McHatton appeared
aDd presented his claims for the seat occu
pied by De Wolfe A few minutes later
Levi J. Hamilton appeared and presented
his credentials for the same office. By
agreement the candidates withdrew their
claims until a certain time, and Judge
De Wolfe proceeded with the Venneday
case, charging the jury and acting in the
official capacity of judge. Attorney Cole
holds that De Wolfe had no right to sit as
jadge after his successor had taken the
oath of office and duly qualified. That
such action was taken by Hamilton and
McHatton and right there he lost his power
of judge, but, notwithstanding they bad
dnly qualified, he continued in the capaci
ty of judge. The applicant, therefore,
claims that the proceedings by which Ven
neday was sentenced were illegal, and asks
for the discharge of the prisoner.
Chief Justice Blake will hear the appli
cation next Saturday.
"ONLY AN ACTRESS."
An Incident That Transpired in a Pull
man Car on the Northern
Pacific.
Editor Herald :—Last Thursday a
very touching incident occurred on the
east bound express of the Northern Pacific
road. The train was very crowded and at
the end of one of the coaches sat a worn
oat looking womaQ with six children, one
of them in her arms. She had been travel
ing three days and had three more to
travel hefjre reaching her destination,
which was Seattle. Her eldest child, a
gul. was ander twelve years of age. Three
of the children and the baby had been
qnite ill aDd their cases had almost ex
hausted the poor .mother. At Mandan a
very handsome and elegantly dressed lady
entered the car accompanied by some
friends. When the train pulled out from
Mandan the youDg lady noticed at once
the tired ont mother and her children.
Stepping over to the mother she said,
"Can I assist you, Madam, in any way?
Let me take the baby." And soon tne
baby was wrapped in the lady's coat aud
sound asleep. Then two of the other
children claimed the attention of the lady,
aud after supplying them with candies
they also were put to sleep.
Then the young lady devoted her atten
lion to the mother, and securing a pillow
and comforter from the kind hearted train
hands the poor tired mother was also soon
qnietly resting.
A party opposite, a lady, was heard to
ask another who the yonng lady was, and
the reply was given, load enough for every
one in the coach to hear, "Oh, she is only
an actress."
A dignified gentleman walked down the
aisle to where the young lady sat and said:
" Madam, God bless yon, if yon are only
an actress!" It is not, I suppose, fair to
give the name of the lady, and I trust she
will pardon me for doing so, bnt I cannot
refrain from giving it to the public. Her
name is Helen Blythe.
Helena, Nov. 11. Reader.
The Local Office Sustained.
Advices from Washington state that the
decision of Register Lan rhorne, of the Hel
ena land office, in the contest case of T. F.
Towusley against John McCormick, over a
homestead entrv just east of Helena, has
been sustained by the general land office.
The lawyers in the case were Z T. Burton
for Town*ley, and Massena Ballard
lor McCormick. The decision holds Mc
Cormick's entry good and gives him the
right to go on and make final proof. From
what is learned of the case, the decision is
eminently just The contest of Townsley.
who was tormerly a hack driver in Helena,
hut has since left the country, was nothing
but an a temp- *0 " jump" a valuable piece
of land. Afterwards Townsley assumed
the role of a blackmailer aDd offered to
"compromise" the case for a moneyed con
sideration. McCormick, however, spurned
his offer, and, standing on his rights, at last
has the satisfaction of seeing his title to
the land ratified by both the local and gen
eral land office»-.

How 0 t o lyre 1« touched thro' some deep
power
Ou siue .inis Ives! — Bn inspiration breathed
fro fit some high soul upon its trembling chorda,
Thrilling all i.s strains in with deeper Are.
Like sunset dories thrilling earth and sky,
Like music of the spheres, like starry light,
This breath of soul to soul—this unseen force,
Felt like a sacred presence in the life !
Such the influence of a spirit ifigh,
Its ministry like that of angel guise, —
And such its p wer upon the singer's soul ! „A
Irving Park, Chicago.
Quaker Enthusiasm.
Dr. Joseph Parker, after he had delivered
his eulogy on Henry Ward Beecher in
Brooklyn, took occasion to remark that
American audiences as compared with the
English, were very lacking in their ex
pression of enthnsiasm. Yet the Amer
icans to which his criticism was directed
was, from an American standpoint, rather
demonstrative. What would the distin
guished London preacher and orator think
if called npon to undergo an experience
similar to one that fell to the lot of Wendell
Phillips on the occasion of his first appear
ance in Philadelphia?
Mr. Phillips had been engaged to deliver
three lectures there npon political ques
tions, and as he knew that he and his
audience wonld accord in opinion, he ex
pected a warm greeting.
Ou the first evening he foand
the large hall filled with Quakers. On the
front bench sat the three committeemen
who had invited him to speak. Every
free in the audience was calm and critical.
He rose and stepped to the desk amid pro
found silence.
He was a yonng orator nsed to fervent
applanse from eager hearers. His heart
qnailed but he began boldly. As he con
tinued, he paused now and then, according
to the custom of yonng speakers, at the
points where applanse or a laugh wonld
have been welcome, bat the deadly silence
remained nubroken; still the faces before
him showed no sign of emotion. He re
solved to rouse them. He hnrled at them
his strongest argument«, his most scathing
satire, his tenderest pathos.
Not a smile, not a movement answered
him. Calm as a stone his Rhadamanthine
judges faced him. At last, exhausted and
chagrined, he finished abruptly and sat
down.
A long panse. Then a committeeman
arose and stepped npon the platform.
" My friends.,' he said, "this yonng man
hath a disappointed appearance. He is
doubtless accustomed to some manitesta
tion of satisfaction from the audience. I
propose that, in token of our approbation
of his discourse, we give him three cheers."
"Seconde^," said another Friend.
"I will give the time," said the first
speaker.
"One, two, three!"
"Hurrah!" calmly remarked the two
other committeemen, in a low voice.
"Again!"
"Hurrah!" more faintly.
"Again!"
Dead silence.
Mr. PmlLps found afterwards that his
audience had keenly appreciated his speech,
not losing a single point; bat he never for
got the depressing effect of thoee three
cheers
New Cars for the B. & O.
