Missoula Land Cases. In the federal court yesterday Judge Knowles vacated the setting of the Missoula land district perjury cases. They were to have been tried Nov. 18, but Special Attorney Maynard yesterday «:iid that Mr. Burch hnd asked him to have the cases heard after the first of the j ear, if possible. Judga Knowles vacat ed the original setting and now it is probable the cases will not be called until after the holidays. A Grateful Rattlesnake. "Rattlesnakes are grateful if you gain their affection," says a correspondent of the Corsica»a (Tex.) News. "My brother Jim found a six-foot rattler near town ■caught under a boulder, and instead of using his advantage, ha sympathetically released the snake, which thereupon be eamc a pet and followed Jim around and guarded him as watchfully as a dog. One night he was awakened, and miss ing the snake from its usual place at the .foot of the bed, ho knew something was wrong. He got up and lighted a match to investigate, and found a burglar in the next room in the coils of the SDake, which had its tail out of the window rattling for the police." Assayers Differ. Helena, Mont., Nov. 9.—Two assayers made their returns today' on the ore found yesterday while excavating for the federal building in this city. Assayer Emmet R. Fisk'a return showed there was no gold in the rock. He says the rock is not quartz, but crystallized lime, stained with iron. The rock lie assayed was taken from the ground two days ago. • Assayer W. G. Brown makes a differ ent return. Iiis assay was from rock taken out late yesterday. While he will not give out the figures tonight, ho says the assay shows values something less than $50, and he says it is as good a prospect as has been uncovered in this vicinity in a long time. Assayer Fisk says there might be value iu the rock at a great depth, but lie insists tneieisnone now. Paymaster Robbed. Pensaloca, Fla., Nov. 10.—Paymaster Stevens of the United States army ar rived from Alauta Saturday, and before leaving that city placed in a hand satchel 200 silver dollars and $4,800 in paper for the purpose o( paying the sev eral hundred artillerymen at Fort Ba rancas and McReel their salaries for the last mouth. When he reached the fort here ho oponod his grip and found that ali the paper money had been abstracted and that only the 203 dollars remained. Amazement and surprise followed the discovery. The p dice were instructed to look out for the treasure. Paymaster i Stevens thinks some professional pick- in pocket followed him and relieved him during tho trip. Ha cannot recall a ' single incident of the trip that would have any connection with the robbery, but has an idea the money was taken ! before ho left Atlanta. j Will Use Ëleetrieity. j Minneapolis, Nov. 9.—The Great j Northern is preparing to investigate tho possibility of utilizing Snoqualmie falls, , thï greatest scenic attraction in the state of Washington, for pulling all of its trains between Seattle and the summit of the Cascade range. The Northern I'ucitic road is also considering tho falls as a source of power for running its trains from Portland and Seattle to the summit of the Cascades. President Hill has decided that eleotricty shall be the motive power through the Cascade tunnel, and if possible from the summit of the Cascades to the western terminals. The SiiOqualmie falls are owned by William T. Baker, formerly president of the Chicago board of trade. His son Charles H. Baker, is president ot ttie company. The falls have a total horse power of 100,009. Only about 10,090 o this is now in use. The falls are 270 feet high and at present they supply the power for the street railways of Tacocia ard Seattle and for the flouring mills in the latter city. Fenced Government Land. It is reported that George Carroll living south of j 1 ! v,. the Cheyenne réserva , , , . ., tt ■<- 1 tion, has been arrested by the United ; ] States marshal for fencing in govern ment laud, says the Yellowstone Jour nal. From what can be learned of the affair Carroll's offense was the result of his efforts for protection of his stock from the iuroads and encroachments of Wyoming cattlemen. It is customary for cattlemen to pick out favored spots on their ranges which they reserve for wiuter grazing, then they make a round up late in the fall and turn their cattle into these preserved pastures. It ap pears that in some cases before they get a chance to do this the Wyoming cattle men turn their stock iu on the Montana range and the men to whom the range of natural right belongs have to rustle fur their fodder. Carroll, according to the reports, took the matter into his own hands and fenced in such pastures as he i thought be needed for his own stock I during the winter.

Pete McCartney, Counterfeiter. Stories of McCartney are abundant in secret service circles. His most con- j spicuous trait appears to have b9en his effrontery, and this doubtless will ac count for a part of the success ho achiev- ! ed in his disreputable calling. One illustration will suffice. He had just ac quired the notoriety incident to a release from a considerable term of imprison ment for counterfeiting, and took ad vantage of the public interest in him by goinsr upon the lecture platform and regaling large audiences, at fifty cents n head, with the "Confessions of a i Crook." Naturally, he moved about with some rapidity, a3 his lecture jon siiraed only ono evening in each place where he stopped, so that was it I some time before the police discovered that he had steadily-made use of his box 1 office to get rid of ariWmense amount of 1 his own counterfeit money. Every ; spectator who handed in a dollar for a i ticket received a counterfeit half-dollar in change. The scheme worked magni ticeatly for a while; but, like all Mc ' Cartneys enterprises, it led at last to disaster and the penitentiary.

St. Louis, Nov. à. —The Po3t Dispatch today says that the man arrested Thurs day night and suspected to be one of tho robbers who held up the Great Northern "flyer" near Wagner, Mont., last July, was positively identified today, as the party Longabaugh, who is known to have been one of the participants in tho robbery. The identification was made by a St. Louis business man, who was prosecut ing attorney in Wyoming in 1897, w hen Longabaugh was arrested as a member of a gang of horse thieves, I'his man asked the police to conceal his identity which they did. Longabaugh started when the St. Louis man first walked into his presence today. The prisoner still refuses either to admit or den his identity. A term of 60 years in the penitentiary at Deer Lodge awaits Harry Lauga baugh. one of the Wagner train robbers, now in jail at St. Louis, if he should be brought to Montana for trial. If tried in St. Louis, ho may be committed to the penitentiary for 15 years for each stolen bank note found in his possession Iu either case, he should doubtless spend the remainder of his life in prison. . .. ... . . The St. Louis authorities seem to fear that he would not be punished with suf ficient severity if brought to Montana. T: ey figure that, if given the maximum penalty for his participation in the Wag ner robbery, ho would, by good behavior, be able to reduce his term to 17 years - but a former resident of Valley county yesterday pointed out the fact that the St. Louis officers are evidently ignorant of the fact that Longabaugh held lip two trains in Montana. He bas been positively identified as one of the men who held up a Great Northern train at Malta in 1892, and ever since that affair he has been a fugitive from^ustice. For that offense, he could be sent up for 20 years for robbery and for 10 yea rs for assault in the first degree, and for the Wagner robbery, the penalty is the same. Montana will bo able to give him a home to 1 * the rest of Iiis days, if he should not be tried in St. Louis. The Choteau county authorities are anxious , „ held-up train, who has knowu him well for years, and there would be no difficul-i ' ty in convicting him, while they fear that to get a chance at him: ho has been pos itively identified by the engineer of the a St. Louis jury, not understanding well how many and serious have been his offenses, would be leniett toward him.

Tammany 's Big Pay Roll. * ** * figures printed in the Sun last Sunday as to the payroll of New \ork city under Tammany rule have amazed j public men in Washington. A well known Southern Democrat of more than twenty years of consecutive servicj in the Uni ted States senate said regarding these tigurss: j "It costs more to run the single muni cipality of New York city, under the one man system of administration as prac ticed by Croker, than to conduct all the nine great executive departments here, throwing in the government printing, house and the government of the Dis- j trict of Columbia, including its police'; foice. Think of that ! "According to this Sun exhibit t there! are in (Jreater New York 40,914 public employes of all kinds, which includes the police fores of 7,026 persons. Last year the e îormous sum of $43,927.317 was paid to them. Now, including more than 3.000 people in the government printing house and more than 3,000 in the District government, you will find that in all the executive departments here there are less than 20,0JJ people employed. "Furthermore, the aggiegate disburse ments to all Federal employes within the District of Columbia, which includes every executive branch of the local government, viz., its police,school teach ers, etc., fall considerably below §20,000, 000 per annum, les9 than half the aggre gate paid by New York city." One of the senator's auditors attempt ed to palliate this showing by referring to the great police force necessary to preserve order in New York, as coin pared with the small one required in Washing ton. : "My dear sir," he instantly retorted, "you can add the payroll of tli9 dis ciplined police force of the entire nation, otherwise the United States army, to the executive expense account of the several departments here, and still find the aggregate will be several millions less than this lavish payroll of the municipal ity of New York. The army in 1990 was about „nine times greater than New York's police force, and it included more than 2,500 officers with high pay. As tounding as it may appear, the pay of our regular army, officers and men, and including the retired list, amounts to less than half the aggregate salary list of New York City*. Yet there has been a great hue aud cry among Democrats, especially the Bryanites, about the terrible burden our army has become. "I go still further and assert that the payroll of the entire naval establishment can be added to the cust of the executive departments here, and that the aggregate payroll of all will still not exceed that of New York city alone, although it is probable that altogether the army, navy and various civilian employes of the United States government within the District of Columbia will outnumber New York's aggregate at least two to DESERT LAND, FINAL PROOF.—NOTICE FOR 1*17 »LIGATION.
