THE NEW NORTH WEST.
TAMES H. MILLS, EDITOR AND PUBLISHER. The Offical Paper of Deer Lodge County ENTasrD IN TaE DEER LODGE, MONTANA, Pe5TorrFIC rFO TranSMIursIo AS SEcoND CLASS MaIr. MaTTS. IT Is stated that Mr. Armstrong has sol the Isaou~ian to the Missoula Democrats, and tbat it is to be issued as an up and up Democratic paper. IT was reported that Emperor William, of Germany, died at 6:45 last evening, but a dispatch dated 9:20 p. m. contradicted it. If Isot dead, be is dying. MONTANA, under carpet-bag dispensation, had to take its chances in the Louisiana ottery, and, although it may not have got ten much, it drew a Liddell. Wz thought the day had gone by in Mon tana when any newspaper would have to resort to brown paper to print on. But the Madisoaman'a supply got side-tracked in a snow drift somewhere, and it had to come out last week on "old gold." REPORTs from the Crown Prince of Ger many are variable. One day be is at the point of death and the next walking in his garden. He may survive a few weeks but unless Emaperor William dies sauddenly he will never mount the throne of Germany. Tnrmn have been many fine pietures of Bismarck, but the best, to one who has not seen him, is the one In the March Century, where he is taking a walk in the garden, clad in a rubber coat. Without the habili ments of station be looks juast what he Is, a master and ruler of men. THEODORE ROBEVELT is given the place of honor in the March Century with his ar ticle "The Home Raneb," being a descrip tion of his ranch on the Little Missouri, Montana, and the life of the ranchman and cowboy. It Is splendidly written and as well illustrated by Remington. Evr~ Judges will differ. The Bozeman Chronicle says Judge DeWolfe removed the U. 8. Court from Boaeman to Miles City because the latter had the best hotel. Ex Judge McLeary, on the contrary, removed the Second Judicial District Court from Deer Lodge, which has the best hotel in the Territory, to Butte, which has the poorest ones. The scales of Justice flop up and down on the hotel question. A PnosPrcTus issued by the Record Pub Ilshing Co., Helena, announces the publica tion of the Sunday Record, cnmmencing March 25th. It will be published after the style of the Sunday journals which have such general clidulation in larger communi ties. We believe Mr. Mollinelli, a news paper man of some years' service on the In dependent and other journals, and with spe eial adaptibility for the line of work con templated, is t.e leading member of the new irm. We wish the enterprise success. CoNxonaRssm have an engaginog way of not being there when the other fellow is raking them. A few days age Senator Vest, in the absence of Senator Ingalls, let go a lot` of venom on the Dependent Pension bill, Ingalls coming in for a share of his bar rangue. A few days later Ingalls replied, and beside the attention given to others and other matters, riddled Vest fore and aft but Vest wasn't there, although everybody knew Ingalis was to reply. The accommo dating absence of these gentlemen when they are to get it in the neck probably saves unpleanant personal responsibilities and apologies to the Senate, but it looks farcical to the country. CLAUs SPRECKLES has arrived in Phila delphia and says he will put $5,000,000 in a sugar refinery and fight the sugar trust, which has trodden on his corns in Califor nia. Philadelpbhia has offered him two favorable sites, and be prefers that city on account of its cheap fuel and its railroad and water facilities. He proposes to refine 4,000 barrels per day, and aside from the product of his Sandwich Island plantations will buy in open market. We have no doubt what ever Spreckels will fight the trust and fight It to the bitter end--if he can make more money that way than by going into the com. bine. He has, however, never taken the degree of philanthropist, that we have heard of. ClanaMAx I. D. McCutcheon, of the Re publican Territorial Central Committee, is ascertaining the views of the several mem bers of the committee as to the place of hold. lig the Territorial convention to elect dele gates to the National convention. As it must be held six weeks before the National convention there is not much time for delay. Among the towns desiring the convention to be held there is Livingston,a desirable place at which to hold a future convention, but owing to the fact that the attendance is gen erally light at this class of conventions, and that Helena is the most readily accessible point for the majority of delegates it is prob able the convention will be held there. Tas iocKY FORS railroad rumpus threat ens to rival the old Schleswig-Holstein ques tion in its complex and unfathomable mys teries. Dozens of columns have been de voted to elucidating it, and further than that the man (Ryan) who was supposed to be backing It, declares he has not been In It for several months; that contractors and laborers have been unable to get their pay and many are broke or temporarily bank rupt; that the work is plastered with liens sad everybody swears "it was the other fel low that did it," the public are as much in the dark as ever. We are glad the limita tions of space at command precluded our attempting to follow the history of the com plication, for it has been a voluminous and interminable one. Mr. Walter Cooper, of Bozeman, stands, as treasurer, between the two fires, having made the contracts, as he states, on full and explicit authority, and then did not have the money to pay for their performance. There seems to be a question now if he was not deceived by the parties to whom Dennis Ryan transferred his interests, but we feel assured Mr. Cooper has acted in entire good faith throughout and that it will be shown. Pending this trouble a bill is before Congress to grant a right of way for another railroad that will parallel the Rocky Fork road some distance and a strong fight is now raging in Washington between friends of the respective projects. De Lesseps Keeps a Bold Front. PAnts, March 1. -De Lesseps, in his re port to the extra meeting of the Panama Canal Company to-day, states that owing to the prevalence of the rainy season and the diuiclty In. procuring workmen, he can hardly insure the completion of the canal in 1890. The directors have been induced to agree to the construction of locks, by which vessels of the largest tonnage may traverse the eanl in 1800, before the work is com pleted. Pending the decision of the Govern meont regarding the lottery loean, it has been decided to proceed with a third iueof bonds to the value of 6,000,000 frncs, tLbe repayment of which will be prsvided for by the reation of guarantee fund lnvested in .eyies IS Tu UNO D ANGRoB?" - The Iadependent says the Mineral Land Asseclation bas published 2,500 memorial pamphlets, and 10,000 blank afddavits and petitions to Congress praying for legislive sellet. Several hundred affidavits have al ready been filed. It bes been alleged there is no danger of the title to mineral lands passing to the Northern Pacific. The following is an afildavit, says the In dependent, frnaished Mr. Merrill, which will give an idea of the general tenor of some of the certificates. It is signed by R. N. Fos ter, of.Red Bluff, Madison County, testified by him before Charles H. Peek, Notary Public, and certified to by W. P. Garmls, B. B. Smith, Henry Husaelbecker, Charles Holdman, John F. Hoskins, H. W. Foster, and J. L. Minim. It says: My house and other buildings was built in 1880, and peaceable possesslon has been held until of late the Northern Pacific rail road has sold to their attorney, H. N. Blake, the section which my house and other build ings sits on, and now the said H. N. Blake demands of ma the purchase of said land my house and other buildings stand on. I also have a lode claim. The tunnel is run 170 feet to abaft of lode which I am sinking on and taking out ore. The month of the tun nel is twenty-five feet from my house, where myself and family now live at the present time, February 28, 1888. All of the above named buildings and lode claim are in sec tion 7, township 3 south, range 1 east, Mad Ison county, Montana Territory. Here is "mineral land" evidenced by the actual production of ore through a tunnel within 25 feet of the aiant's house from a vein 170 feet distant, and yet he testifies the Northern Pacific Railroad Company' has actually sold said land to Judge Blake and the latter demands from him the pur chase of the land his buildings are on. If the Northern Pacific company can hold non mineral lands tbat close to the natural dump of a mining claim, even if the land would not be within the boundaries that go with a location, the line of demarcation should be well established before the company gets title to the land. But if, as appears more probable, the houses are within the bound aries of the location, this instance is an apt illustration of what is poslble to result if the U. S. Land Office lssues patents to the R. R. company on the lands as certified up to it by the Local Land Office, and the company, or those holding titles from it, could as consist ently demand payment from the occupants of any of said lands. In referring to this Mineral Land question the Mfiner says: "Some people have remarked in connec tlon with this movement to head off the pat enting of the mineral lands of Montana to the Northern Pacific, that they had just as soon get a patent from the road as the Gov ernment. This would be all right if the Northern Pacific would charge no more for a patent to a mineral claim than the Govern ment. But there is no assurance of this. The road would naturally charge whatever its agent thought the claim woull bear. Besides, there are now a number of claims being worked that no patents have been as cured for. These, if on the company's see tions, would be at once levied upon for all they were worth. Under any circumstances it is much safer to deal with Uncle Sam than a corporation." The question goes still further than this. The U. S. mineral lands are now open, free, to prospecting, development and working. A patent need never be acquired by one who does the representation work required. Certainly the Railroad company would not permit this, and prospectors would be liable for treupass and might be ejected. Beside, the acquirement of title to mineral lands by the company under the land grant of the charter is a fraud, although there may be technical difficulty iu establishing the suit to-show it, and titles-tomineral landifronm the Railroad company might be disturbed at any time. It is better the title to mineral lands should remain just where it is until conveyed to applicants for patent under the laws of the United States. THAT TARIFF BILL. In this issue is given pretty fully the sub stance of the tariff reduction bill introduced by the Ways and Means committee of the House, and provisions of the internal reve nue reduction agreed upon. These are spe cial political nets and constitute the Demo cratic spread for votes in the next campaign. The fundamental idea is to "reduce the sur plus." The reduction on import duties ag gregates $54,000,000. It does not, as a gen eral thing, abolish duties. It merely scales them down a certain per cent. There is little doubt but that the increase of impor tations under this would bring the aggregate customs receipts up to as great a sum total as is yielded now; so the surplus would not be affected thereby. The internal revenue reduction is on tobacco, except cigars or cigarettes, and aggregates about $25,000,000, which may be considered the net effect both these bills will have on that "bugaboo" surplus. In consideration of this all wools are put on the free list, which will paralyze the sheep growing industry of the United States except for those grown for mutton. The duty on iron and steel rails is so reduced that American manufacturers cannot com pete with foreign without reducing wages, and while lead, copper, and "all crude min erals and metals unwronght" are placed on the free list. The Salt Lake Tribune says this will close down nine out often of the lead mines of Utah, and it will be the same everywhere, except where they carry a large percentage of silver. Everywhere through the list are reductions that will tend to cripple American industries or reduce Amer ican wages. The full extent of the injury cannot be comprehended until analysis of the bill and its direct effect on industry can be compiled from official statistics and the showings of those engaged therein, which will be developed in the exbanstive discus sion that will result when the bill is con sidered in the House and Senate. The re duction proper cannot materially affect the surplus of hundreds of millions of dollars. That should be expended in building a navy and sea coast defenses worthy of the nation, in paying pensions to deserving and depend ent soldiers of the Union, and in reducing the public debt. If, in addition to that, Congress should put on the free list every article offered forsale by the infamons, octo pus "trusts," that are now strangling, at their first embrace, the life out of the coun try, and keep it there until they have broken up their conspiracies and gone back to legit. imate, competitive trade, there would be a sense of j.iatice in it that would meet the approval of all outside of them; but the probability is a majority of Congressmen have Interests in the "Lrusts," and no such action need be looked for. The Mills tariff bill as it is now should, and we believe will, mire down any party that attempts to carry it through. Moving a Mountain. NEW YonK-[Speeial].-Eneroaching wa ters left Brighton Beach Hotel in a precari onus condition. A novel attempt will be made to move it to solid groubd, intact, a distance of 600 feet. A Harrisburg car con cern is building one hundred solid iron ears for the experiment. It is hoped to arrange the cars so that the strain on all parts of the great building will be equal and safe. Henry Elling has been elected Captain of Co. D., M. N. G., at Virginia City, is place of Capt. T. J. Farrell, who resigned. THE BURLINGTON STBIKE. The strike on the C. B. & Q. was not set tied last Friday as anticipted, the ofeers of the company and engineers not being able to arrive at an agreement.- The road has par tially resumed business, and the Brother hoow of Engineers, as a last recourse, threaten to strike on all lines that handle Burlington through cars, or, as Arthur puts it, "do not maintain a strict neutrality." Several crews of- the recently employed Beading men have abandoned their engines under promise of support from the Brother hood. The engineers on the Burlington and Northern, extending north to Minneapolis, struck Wednesday. The Denver & Rio Grande, Kansas City, Fort Scott & Gulf, and other engineers, are on the eve of striking, and it seems the Brotherhood may strike on every road that co-operates with the C. B. & Q., including the Union Pacific. It is Ar thur's theory that when they strike it is "to win," and further, that when the Brother hood on any road strike, the whole power of the organization in the United States will sustain them. Although the Brotherhood are intelligent, conservative and indisposed to strike, this principle makes it one of the most powerful organizations in the United States-a monopoly of essential, skilled, spe cial labor, in which the individual sinks his personal identity, yields his Individuality as a workingman wholly up to the edicts of an organization, and through It exercises a .tyr anny as great as any monopoly or trust ever exercised. Sixty millions of people in the United States, for the time being, in all their business relations that extend to railroads, may be made subject to all manner of loss and inconvenience simply because of some disagreement about wages on some one or other railroad. This should not be. Com mon carriers are restrained and controlled by law to prevent their discriminating or doing public injuries, and an organization that strikes simply because of a monopoly of skilled labor that will compel obedience to its edicts, is resolving itself into just as great a power for evil as is possible by any other monopoly. These matters, however, involve the entire issues of the labor and monopoly problems In all their interminability, and are only cited incidentally. The strike still continues, and is likely to exceed far beyond its present limits, unless a meeting of Man agers, which was expected to be held yester day, shall find some common ground on which the contending parties will meet. THAT OMNIBUS BILL. The minority report of the committee on the Springer Omnibus bill, composed of the Republicans of the committee, makes its strong point as we suggested last week-that after Dakota, Montana, Washington and New Mexico-have done all that is provided for in the Springer bill they will be no nearer statehood so far as admission is con cerned than they are now. There is no guarantee in the bill that they will be ad mitted, even after they have done all they can under this bill. Eleven states have been admitted without enabling acts, why not these four? Dakota, which is Republican, has two or three times larger population than New Mexico, Washington or Montan., Democratic, and has been demanding di vision, as well as statehood, with as many people and as great wealth remaining to each part as the other Territories have as they are. And yet it is made a condition of the Springer bill that Dakota shall not be divided. This is the adroit scheme that lies at the foundation of the bill. There is no promise that she will be admitted, but if she comes in it must be with double the entitle ments required of her sister Territories, and as one State where there should be two. Dakota does not want to be admitted as one State. This bill compels her to do that or remain out of the Union. This is monstrous political tyranny and injustice. We hope to see the Springer bill killed in its nest. Toole's Montana admission bill we hope to see pass, but we prefer Territorialism, carpet .arg government all, for indefinite time, to being smuggled into the Union at the sacri-. fice of the rights and welfare of our neigh bors. ABOUT THE SMALL-POX. The small-pox has been treating Montana in a very peculiar manner this winter. Cases have developed in a dozen or more different places, and except in Butte they have hardly extended beyond the person contracting it. This Is remarkable, as it is a viciously con tagious disease, and it cannot be that strict isolation has been observed in all cases. Neither can its origin be readily accounted for in many cases, as some have occurred where it is asserted there was no possibility of contact. Of course with railroad commu nieation and travel the opportunity for dis semination of the disease is increased many fold, but where persons have not so traveled, nor been in contact with any one who has, or who has had the small-pox, or one who has been in contact with it, the origin is difficult to determine. It is said to prevail to greater or less degree in several towns in California from which Montana receives many goods, but there have been cases where this man ner of origin was not apparent. Fortunately the form has not generally been malignant, and nearly all with good treatment and fair physical condition at the inception of the disease have recovered; but a malignant form and widespread contagion is liable to prevail at any time. The precaution of vaceination should be universal, at least in towns, and when a case occurs the most rigid quarantine enforced. The next month or two will still be "great small pox weather," and too great care cannot be taken. Tho .ew rudge. Washington Special to Pioneer Press. Moses B. Liddell, who was yesterday ap pointed an associate Justice of the Supreme Court of Montana, Is a native of Louisiana, living at Monroe, in the Northern part of the state. He is forty years of age, a lawyer of good standing, and has been a district judge in his own state. He takes the position in Montana on account of the ill health of his wife, whom bhebelieves will be greatly benefitted by a northern climate. He was endorsed by the entire Louisiana delegation in Congress. Liddell is a son of Gen. Lid. dell, whose feud with the Jones family of the same state is a part of the history of that section. It raged for several years with great fury, resulting in the sacrifice of half a dozen lives on either side. In 1866 it was ended by Gen. Liddell and his partisans going to the Jones plantation and killing off Col. Jones and all the rest of the Jones fam ily in eight. The only one who escaped was the well known Cuthbert Jones, of this city. He crawled out of a window and hung by his hands to the ledge until the Liddells had left the house without discovering him. A baby brother was also spared. Young Jones had to leave the state, and has never re turned since. He was made a Consul to Algeria, whence he returned a few years ago, and lately has sought a similar post under President Cleveland. He was op posed by Floyd King, lately in Congress from Louisiana, and Jones and King have had several wars through the papers since. Jones lives In Washington. It is not known that Judge Liddell took part in any of the encounters above mentioned. The Helena Herald says it was the Lid dell-Jones feud that furnished the basis for Mark Twaln's famous vendetta nla the "Ad ventures of Huckleberry Finn," published In the Century a couple or three years ago.

THE BEMAINDER OF THE BILL. Is made up entirely of the leading features of the old Hewitt administrative bill, such as the similarity clause provisions intended to guard against smuggling, exempting of theatrical scenery and wardrobes when in tended for temporary use in the United States and tourists' wearing apparel; the clause providing for the taxation of cartoons or coverings; the section intended to prevent false invoices and undervaluations and pro. viding for the punishment of persons guilty of these offenses; the extension of the ware house privilege to three years; the abolition of the allowance for damage in warehouses; the abolition of all fees upon entries of im ported goods and the requirements that in voices shall be submitted to the United States consular officers before exportation to the United States; the section relative to ap peals in customs cases and limiting the time within which such suits can be brought; the bestowal of the sole jurisdiction in the trial of suits against United States Collectors upoa United States Circuit Courts and the penalty clause directed against the attempted bribery of customs officers. THE LATEST ESTIMATES Made by the Committee on Ways and Means of the probable reduction in revenue that would be effected by the passage of the bill, are as follows: Chemicals, 5730,000; china and glass, $1,600,000; cottons, $277,000; provisions, $500,000 (approximate); woolen goods, $12. 300,000; sundries, $1,000,000; paper, $25,000; sugars, $11,000,000; hemp, flax and jute, $1, 800,000; metals, $1,500 (approximated); free list, $22,250,000. This would make a reduc tion of about 614,000,000. Chairman Mills said to-day that internal revenue changes had been purposely excluded from the bill. The Democratic members were still consid ering that subject, and it was not possible to say at this time whether reductions would result in the presentation of another bill dealing specifically with internal revenue, or in the inclusion of some provisions bear ing upon that system in the present bill at some future stage. Strike on the Atlantic and Pacific. ALBUQUERQUE, N. M., March 1.-All the freight conductors and brakemen on the Atlantic & Pacific road went on a strike last night. The new Superintendent wanted to reduce wages nearly one-half, which the men would not stand. Freight trains ar riving here are abandoned, but everything is quiet. It is understood that the enginees offered to join the strike if the other men wished it so, but they refused. Everything in the freight line is at a deadlock. The strike of conductors and brakemen on the A. & P. road is complete throughout the entire line, and business on the road is vir tually suspended. Westbound passengers coming into Albuquerque are sent to Cali fornia by the Southern Pacific road. The road is making an effort to fill the places of the strikers with raw men, but the effort so far is not very successful. The strikers are perfectly quiet and orderly and no demon strations of any kind have been made to in dicate any disposition to resort to violence. The strike affects about 700 men, the major ity of whom are married. The trouble between the conductors and brakemen and the Atlantic & Pacific Cbm pany, as given by the strikers, is as follows: "We, like the men on all other roads, are paid a certain amount per mile. Our new superintendent, who recently arrived'from Georgia, issued an order compelling us to do a certain amount of yard work for which we receive no compensation, thereby pre venting us from earning what we consider fair wages. When our committee remon strated with him and asked him to rescind the order he refused to do so, and replied that he could get plentyof men in Georgia who would work for $45 per month, and, if necessary, he could run his trains with negroes. After becoming satisfied we were not receiving proper treatment and had no redress, we concluded to go out." Enormous Dividends. Nuw YORK, March 3.-[Special to Tri bune-Copyright, 1888, by the California Associated Press.]-Ten shares of Chemical Bank stock were sold to-day on the Stock Exchange at $3,600 per share without the bi. monthly dividend of 25 per cent. This is the highest premium of any bank stock in the world. The dividends of the Chemical Bank have for a long time been at the rate of 15 per cent. bi-monthly, with an addi tional dividend of ten per cent. some time during the year, or an even hundred per cent. per annum. The dividend declared for the first of March, and to be continued thereafter, is 25 per cent. bi-monthly, or 150 per cent. per annum. Last year the bank paid $300,000 in dividends, equal to the amount of the capital stock, and carried a surplus of twice the capital stock. In 1843 or 1844, David Wolfe, father of Catherine Wolfe, bought 200 shares of Chemical Bank stock at par, or for $20,000. To-day the same stock, at the price commanded, would be worth $720,000, and has paid more than $1,000,000 in dividends since the day it was purchased. The Crown Prince's Character. Nzw YORK, March 31.-[Special to Tri bune--Copyrighted, 1888, by the Cahlifornia Associated Press.]-Adam Badeau writes the following to the Mail and Express concern ing the Crown Prince: "1 used to see the Prince at the English Court, to which he sometimes accompanied his wife. I heard the talk of those who knew him as Inti mately as men often know Crown Princes. Courtiers thought him kindly, sufficiently able, honest and honorable, but he did not impress me as remarkable in the outward indications of character or ability. He was rugged, and almost rough in appearance and manner, not courtly, and hardly affable. He seemed to think much of his own conse quence, and doubtless did so. No one ever spoke of him as intellectual, but his career is proof that he has been a man of good staff, perhaps more likely to have ruled his country and done his duty well than if he had been brilliant and elegant, and had smirked and bowed with greater ease. He evidently thought he had a great destiny, and that if men were not born to obey him, he at least was made to command them." THE SECOND HATCH. Reductions Proposed in Internal Revenues. WASHINGTON, March 3.-It is stated that internal revenue reductions were agreed upon yesterday by the Democrats of the ways and means committee and will be re ported to the fall committee early next week and considered with the tariff bill. They effect a total reduction of about $24, 000,000 or $25,000,000. The tobacco tax, except on cigars and cigarrettes, is repealed, reducing the revenue about $19,000,000. Licenses are abolished, which will make a further reduction of four or five millions. There Is no reduction on spirits of any kind. The manufacturers of fruit brandies are allowed to place their product in bonded warehouses and take warehouse receipts for the same time as whiskey distillers now have. Some extra penalties have been les sened. NEWS NOTES AND MENTION. The "medicine" of the famous Sword' Bearer, the dead martyr of the Crow war, is now in possession of Agency Clerk Blake. It consists of a large piece of red flapnel, I which is .Ltaehed a bone late. In one eor noer of the cloth is rolled and tied a small piece of mysterious root, which has never been identfipd.-Independent. Perhaps it is a stolen piece of the root of all evil. A few days ago Will Kennedy was reported at Great Falls looking over the newspaper field. Now the Independent reports he has Issued a prospectus for "The Age," to be published at Boulder Valley, Jefferson Co. However we may differ with him on some questions, we are free to say Mr. Kennedy is one of the best "all around" newspaper men we ever met, and if he gets hold of a paper of whose editorial columns be has absolute control he will "talk out in meetin' "so that people will want to read it. The incorporators of the new Missoula newspaper are A. B. Hammond, H. M. Pierce, John D. Mathews, C. P. Higgins and Walter M. Bickford. Why from this roll of the "Simon pure" Democracy is the name of that distinguished Democrat and editor Hon. W. J. McCormick, conspicuJus by its absence? Hon. Joseph Chamberlain, wbh was prin cipal British representative in negotiating the pending Canadian treaty, is to be given a public reception at Birmingham on his arrival there. The enthusiasm will be of fish al. It is expected Sullivan and Mitchell will fight to-day in France. Its an awful wicked, brutal business-but, Hurrah for Sullivan! Editor John B. Read, of the Inter- Moun tain, the readiest and most incisive lance in the Republican armory of Montana, has taken a holiday and gone to Salt Lake City. Gdy X. Piatt has the editorial and Will Akers the local columns in charge during his absence. A NEW The Helena Independent is STYLE. now running its editorials with indented side heads, as herewith exempli fled. It is new to us, and, for that reason, does not strike the eye pleasantly. Perhaps RECONCIL- after a time, as we grow more IATION. accustomed to it, its superiority may Vecome more apparent, and who knows On, Mr but that in time it will entirely IPROParTIC supplant the use of caption SOUL! lines, and each point in the ar ticle be side-noted like sections in a law book. The time of the average American is now so engrossed by business that he can only read that which is of most vital interest to him, and it may be a mission of the press to point out to him the plums in the typograph AH,THERE! ic pudding which is daily set before him. Journalism is nothing if not progressive, and if it once becomes evident THE END. the public demand it, the long felt want will be filled if it uses up every gothic letter or other full face letter in the office.

CHICAGO, March 3.-Dispatches from the northwest report severe snow storms Thurs day and Friday. The snow is drifting badly in Dakota, and the Northern Pacific has not moved a freight train west of Fargo for two days. The storm reaches the entire length of Lake Superior and well down the south ern peninsula. The snow is from six to ten feet deep and is drifting. At Cheboygan, St. Ignace and Mackinaw several trains are stalled and no mails have ventured through since Wednesday. While this prevailed east we had de lightfully clear, calm weather in Western Montana. Jake Sharp's Lawyers' Fees. NEW YORK, Feb. 24.-]Special to the Salt Lake Tribune-Copyright, 1887, by the Call fornia Associated Press.l-There is a great rumpus among the lawyers who defended Jacob Sharp, who is supposed to have bribed all the so-called boodle Aldermen in the Broadway Railroad matter. Albert Stick ney, John E. Parsons, ex Judge Neilsen and Peter Mitchell, all eminent lawyers, de fended Sharp in court, and Congressman Bourke Cochran appeared for Sharp on the appeal and got the conviction set aside. Each expected about $25,000 as a fee, but Jacob has cut all the -bills except Cochran's from a third to a half, and now the lawyers are angry. They are thinking about going tor the briber with a legal club to compel him to pay. New York's Postmaster. NEW YorB-[Special].- A Washington special to the Mail and Express says that It is understood in well informed circles that the President has decided to remove Post. master Pearson, and that Tammany will name his successor. Also that the battle royal between Hill and Cleveland men will open in New York City and State in a few days. A Threatened Split. DUBLIN, March 3.-The Express affirms that there are internal dissensions in the Parnellite ranks, which will produce a rup ture that will shake the foundations of the National League. American inspiration, it says, is causing a number of Leaguers to join the Gaelic Association, which opposes Parnell's policy. They Go Good. Tid Bits. "May I not bring you a little refreshment of some kind, Miss DeSmoke?" asked young Mr. Sillie of a Montana girl at a Boston party the other night. "Wouldn't yuu lke an Ice?" "No, I don't know's I would," she replied sweetly. "But I do feel a little faint, and if you could get me a piece of good pie and a couple of spareribs-well done-- I'd like them. Little knick knacks of that sort go good when a girl's been dancing steady for four hours. The steam motor street railway was started on Park street, Butte, Tuesday, and proved at once a great success. Many people. thronged the street and a number rode to Meaderville and return.
