IN DURANCE AoAIN.-Some two or three
years ago a young man named Whiting
was arrested in Helena for burglary
feloniously entering Isaac Greenhood's
house if we recollect aright,-tried, con
victed and sentenced to a term of 7 years in
the Montana Penitentiary. After his in
carceration therein, he manifested a deep
interest in his spiritual welfare, was a
devoted attendant upon the religious servi
ces conducted for the benefit of the prison
ers, and finally, finding his sins more
heinous than le could bear, had them
washed away in baptism and professed
religion. Governor Potts subsequently, in
the universality of Executive clemency,
overthrew the sentence of the court and
turned Whiting out. Soon after, his songs
of rejoicing took the direction of Negro
Minstrelsy, and he became one of the
founders and fathers of that remarkably
unfortunate and impecunious organization
known as the Old Virginia Minstrels, which
threw harmony around loose in this country
for some weeks and finally struck a discord
and dissolution on the banks of the classic
Bitter Root. Thrown upon his own re
sources, Whiting went to work to make a
living, sometimes gambling and sometimes
laboring. Recently he has been in the
the employ of Mr. D. 8 Herron, who is
building a bridge near Missoula. *As he
earned money he got orders in small
amounts from Mr. Herron on Worden & Co.
On Wednesday of last week Mr. Worden
happened to mentio"r to Mr. Herron an
order that had been presented and paid to
Whiting that day for $22.50. Not having
given such an order he asked to see it, and
found Whiting had "raised" It from $2.50;
also that an order for $1.75 had been raised
to $11.75; also that other trifling inaccuracies
in transacting business had checkered the
career of Whiting until it was decidedly
soiled. About this time Whiting seems to
have dropped on it that he was wanted and
like Genevra he playfully absented himself
from those who watched and waited for his
coming. That night by a singular coin
cidence a saddle belonging to a lad in the
employ of Billy Edwards disappeared ; and
also the next morning a horse belonging to
Daniel Countryman mysteriously disap.
peared from the herd. Then there was
mounting in hot haste and with the injunc
tion, "Speed, Malise, Speed" a Sheriff's
posse was dispatched up the cation and on
Thursday evening overhauled the back
sliding bridge builder at Mouth of Bear
and took him back to the land of the leaf
and the vine to await the consideration of
certain jurors and court oiceers who are to
assemble at Missoula on the 26th of June.
And unless then and there he shall be able
to present a clearer record than circum
stances indicate he will probably get another

The steamer Katie P. Kountz passed up
to-day with 280 tons of freight for Fort
Benton; no passengers. The Union Pacific
Railroad Co. is this week moving their
freight depot from the bottom up town;
so we are unable for a day or two to get a
transcript of freights going west. This is
the first warm day we have had; thermom

She left a portion of her cargo in Sioux
city to be brought up over the Dakota

taken by the boat upon its return trip.
Hereafter the Benton ~jlatS4rom Yank

He had arrainged to have it represented '
under the mining laws of the United States
and supposed it bad been until recently 1
when 4e learned that his agent had not
represented it and that Mr. rarlin had re

whithsbome raaid W. H. ateters, a color-n
ed barber partners in a shop in Helena. i
Steam was soon captured, he having been
overhauled near the Frenchwoman's ranch.
Shaffer had gone to Benton. There he was
joined by a rough looking man. The two
had a skiff built, laid in provisionp and,
taking as a companion a jail bird at Ilenton,
shoved out for down the river. Although i
all had represented themselves as nmoney
less, the sough customer ezhibitstd e legge
out fromti sus and pacompated a ed act
with some bravado that aroused suspicion.
Business men talked it over, procured a
warrant, and sent Deputy Sheriff Hardwick
and four soldiers in pursuit. They over
hauled them ten miles from town, the
soldiers remained concealed, the Sheriff
drew a rifle on the boat, and ordered them
ashore. Hardwick returned to the soldiers
and. reported that he had found no money
nor anything auspicious and had allowed
them to proceed. Soon after he Sheriffbs
posse returned to Benton Deputy Sheriff
Quirk of Helena arrived and taking two
citizens and two soldiers mounted on fleet
horses and started in pursuit, designing to
stop at Camp Cook,Carroll,and Fort Peck to
intercept them, and, if necessary, to push
through to Bismarck. The guide knows
the country thoroughly, and having the
advantage of the short line, the otficers
will doubtless capture them before they
pass Peck. It is stated that Wheatly
turned States evidence and rumored that
their intenition was only to rob Warl, but
that in the struggle to secure him, Warl
tore the mask off Shaffer's face and recog
nized him and that he was murlered on
the theory that "dead men tell no tales."
Stears was indicted by a special Grand
Jury, and when arraigned in Court almost
fainted. He was to be tried this week.
We anticipate Shaffer and his comrade will
show fight or attempt escape and if so it is
highly probable the Courts will not have
an opportunity to pass upon their crime.
It is rarely crimes of this kind are perpe
trated in Montana and the swiftest and
most terrible retribution the Courts can in
flict on murderers will meet with a hearty
amen throughout the Territory.
The Independent contains a full report of
the testimony of W. W. Wheatley, prose
cuting witness in the case of the Territory
vs. W. H. Stears for murder. He makes a
fullrtatejment ofthe wholeaffair. Wheatly,
Stears and Shaffer went to the vicinity of
War's cabin, May 1st. Stears had gone
there several times to rob Warl but had
weakened. Steers struck Warl twice with
a sling shot; Shaffer then grappled him
and the these fell together. Stears and
Shaffer feared witness would tell and
threatened his life, but he swore secrecy.
They then offered him money to leave.
Stears told witness Warl had $14,000 or
.151,0009 Shaffer urged StearS on to the
deed; a fourth man was expected but did
not eome. Warl cried out when he was

testimony were substantiated by Bullock

The territorial grand jury took up the
case of Peter P. Wintermute, yesterday, in
the Gen. McCook shooting affair, and reach
ed a conclusion in the premises. We have
no authority for making the statement, but
it was pretty generally rumored about town
last night that Wintermnte has been in
t dicted for murder. The jury came into
court yesterday afternoon, and asked for
instructions in the case, received them and
retired. Their subsequent deliberations
resulted in the finding of a bill. Winter
mute is now confined to his bed by sickness,
d and cannot be arraigned for trial.- Yank

The site for the location of the depot for
the railroad between this city and Wallula
y was, on last Saturday, selected, and is lo
a cated between the lower end of Main street
and Mill Creek, just at the most westerly
portion of this city. Lands to the amount
a of ten acres were donated-three acres by
Sthe Agate Mill Company, and seven acres
by other parties. Some think that a bet
ter site was offered, but the company think
differently.- Walla Walla Union 1st.
Last evening a band of thirty head of as
fine fat mules as we have seen in the 8tate

ir ANew Steamboat.
Some of our people are in correspondence
,with Messrs. Yorrow & Co., ship-builders,
Loidon, with the view to procure a light
.draught steamer to be placed upon the
,Missouri river above the falls. This firm
estake a specialty of steam launches and
light-draughtboats, to run on shallow, swift
rivers, aid have just finished some to run
on the headwaters of the Amazon. A boat:
which shall not draw more than twelve
inehes, and will cary a fair cargo, can run
.much of the time to Hamilton, Gdffney and
Kennedy's bridge, and would be a ;good
pgying investment. It is ii the hands of
men who will, we think, make it a success.
It will not involve an outlay of more than
ten thousand dollars-perhaps, no more
than half that sumIn-, for the boat.-H$lena
