HELENA, May 2.-[Special to the JMiner] -At about 5:45 this evening this city was startled by a report of a murder and suicide on Davis street. John L Rand, an old res ident and in the milk business in this city, shot his wife and the 8-months child in her arms and then blew his own brains out. The wife was in the yard with the child in her arms and he fired a 45-calibre Winchester, hitting her in the spine. The ball went through her body and also struck the child in the spine, breaking its back. He then went into the house, sat down and blew his own head off. He was a horrible sight, his brains being scattered all over the walls and ceiling, fragments of the skull being also scattered over the floor. The woman died about an hour after shot. The child is still alive, but the doctors say will die within a few hours. The cause of the trouble origi nated away back, Rand having been several times arrested for wife beating, and it has not been more than four days since he was released from jail on the same charge He is a man about 50 years of age and the woman about 30. They leave three children besides the one shot. CATARRH CURED, health and sweet breath secured, by Shiloh's Catarrh Remedy Price 50 cents. Nasal Injector free. For sale by Deer Lodge Drug Co.

Thursday of last week was occupied by the Court in trying the case of the Territory against Jonn Lannen for defacing a legal notice posted by Joel Catching. The jury was out all of Thursday night, but failed to come to an agreement, standing, as we are informed, six for conviction and the like number for acquittal. The case was contin ued for the term. On Friday the case of C. P. H. Bilenberg against the Montana Union Railroad Com pany, for killing a horse, was tried. This is a test case. It was tried at the last term of the court and resulted in a verdict for the plaintiff of $250, but a new trial was granted. The trial at the present term resulted in a like verdict. The case will go to the Sn preme Court. On Friday afternoon Judge De Wolfe adjourned court until Monday morning in order to take a needed rest and to be with his brother who had paid him a visit from Seattle, W. T. Mr. Hiram Blanchard, living in the north part of the coun'y, on Clear Water, was indicted for stealing and feloniously brand :ng cattle. The first case was tried on Mon day and the Territory failed to show any cause for the prosecution whatever and a non-suit was entered on the close of the testimony for the plaintiff. A nolle prosequi was entered in the other cases. W. J. Gal braith, Esq., appea red for the defendant. Motions for new trials in the cases of Edgar H. Stanton and John A. Rowand were overruled and they were sentenced on Wednesday-in the case of Stanton to two terms of one year each, and in the case of Rowand to imprisonment for life. The argument for a new trial in the Row anf case was, heard Wednesday, E. W. Toole Esq. appearing for the plaintiff and W. H. Dewitt and George Haldorn Esqs. ap pearing for the defendant. The motion was overruled and.Rowand sentenced for life, as found by the jury. He showed considerable emotion, notwithstanding he must have known it was inevitable. His attorneys will appeal, but the belief is that the case is im pregnable. Stanton, who was sentenced for two. years Wednesday, took it nonchalently. Court adjourned Wednesday after a four and a half weeks' term. The good impres sion Judge DeWolfe made at first has been strengthened as Court progressed and he has won the admiration of the bar and the ap proval of the people. The only criticism we have heard made is that he might "drive" business a little faster and still give the at. torneys all the latitude of delay that justice requires. Aside from this the expression all has been in admiration. A few tedious cases occupied a large portion of the term and some cases had to be continued that it was very desirable to have determined. Mr. Frank E. Corbett is a very competent clerk; prompt, obliging, and thoroughly attentive to his busin.-ss; and as this is their first term in this district these well deserve" words may not be amiss.

The proceeds are for the benefit of the Reading Room. The best hoax of the season occurred Wednesday evening, a couple of the boys letting go of the fact that a baby had been found dead in a box on a branch of Cotton wood Creek. It got the officers and every body until it was finally found-a. real doll. There were enough amusing incidents con nected with the affair to fill a column. Families wishing to locate where they can have the benefits of first class educa tional advantages, in one of the most de lightful towns in Montan:s, unsurpassed for health and those natural conditions neces sary for a home, should not fail either to address or call upon H. S. Reed, Deer Lodge, who will take pleasure in giving all the in formation desired without cost to the en quirer. 982-tf The delightful weather that had prevailed broke last Friday, and the thermometer that night ran down to three degrees below freez ing, and Saturday night was only four de grees above freezing. Vegetation was checked, and some of it "cooked," but the injury was not serious. Monday night and Tuesday we had considerable rain, some thing that was badly needed and which will do great good, although a larger fall would have been more acceptable. A few days of warm weather now will make the coun try "smile." There are a large number of trees and shrubbery bei*g planted in Deer Lodge this season-largel even for a town that annualy spends considerable sums of money for this purpose and Bhich is noted therefor. More over, the expenditure this year is more judi cious, the native trees and established hardy varieties of al kinds being given preference over the no elties and those of doubtful adaption to this rigorous winter climate. In a year or two the wisdom of this course will be manifest,' the lawns and gardens will be spots of beauty and the growth of shade trees on the residence streets will be uni versal. Mr. C. X. 1arabie, who lost his trunk in the Centennial hotel fire, concluded to play for even in a other direction, and so went over to Great Falls last week and purchased from Mr. Rbbert Vanghn the splendid stal lion "Prospect," which is of a favorite fam ily, and is a superb horse. He is now on the Willow Run I farm. The purchase price is not stated. Mr. Larabie also inquired into coal matters fo some extent, and seems satis fied that the Sand Coulee coal is of satisfac. tory quality and quantity. The Great Falls Smelting Company has commenced work and expects to erect twenty furnaces of 50 tons capacity each, daily. The Company has unlimited capital, and will increase its plant as demand is made upon it. Information of a practice that has been known to exist in Deer Lodge County for several years, of parties unlawfully taking fish in the northern part of this county and conveying them to Helena for sale, has come to the Deer Lodge. Rod & Gun Club in such manner that it is now deemed possible to secure a conviction and the Club has offered a reward of $150 for the information that will lead to a conviction of the parties. It is said that some 400 pounds of trout killed with powder or caught with a seine or traps are taken to Helena weekly from streams or lakes in this county. The law prohibits this and lays a penalty of fine and imprisonment. Any one prepared to fur nish evidence on this matter is requested to correspond with the Secretary of the Club. Farmers who are alive to the importance ot procuring the best and most improved Farm Implements, should call at Cockrell's Implement House and examine his stock.

Report of Committee on Boundaries Ated Upon and Action Taken to Present the Matter to County Commssioners. The adjourned citizens' meeting in regar to the incorporation of Deer Lodge w. called to order at Union Hall by the Ohaim man at 7 o'clock p..m. Monday evening, May 80th, 1888. Reports of Committees being called for, the following were submitted: Mr. Chairman: The undersigned, membefi of the committee appointed at your last meeting to consider and report upon the boundaries of the proposed incorporation of the town or city of Deer Lodge, would sug gest the following: That the present north ern, southern and western boundaries of the patented townsite of Deer Lodge remain unchanged, and that the° limits be extended one-fourth mile east. Very respectfully, J. H. Owings, H. 8. Reed, H. H. Zenor, Samuel Scott. Mr. Chairman: The undersigned would respectfully submit the following as a sub stitute for the report of the majority of the committee appointed at your last meeting to determine the boundaries of the proposed incorporation of Deer Lodge, to-wit: 1. That the southern and western bounda ries of the patented townsite remain un changed. 2. That the boundary be extended one fourth mile east from the present limits. 3. That the boundary be extended nine hundred (900) feet north of the present lim Its and nine hundred (900) feet north of the proposed extension to the east. N. J. Bia lenberg, O. B. O'Bannon. The substitute reported by the mipority of the Committee was then on motion submitted and after free discussion was adopted as the sense of the meeting by a three to one vote. On motion, the Committee cn Boundaries was empowered and instructed to prepare and circulate a petition and map to define the boundaries of wards or districts, to file. the same in the office of the County Clerk and to do all acts necessary to bring the matter properly before the Board of County Commissioners, without again reporting to a meeting of citizens. On motion, Francis R. Bill was added to the Committee. On motion, the Chair was instructed to appoint a committee of three on finance and Messrs. Willard Bennett, Dr. C. G. Glass and Addison Smith were appointed as such Committee. Votes of thanks were then tendered to the Committee on Boundaries for services ren dered, to Van Gundy & Miller for the use of Union Hall and to the Deer Lodge brass hand for music at the opening of this meeting. On motion, the meeting adjourned sine die. JAMES H. MILLs, Chairman. O. B. O'BA-xxox, Secretary. The action above taken, with that to be done by the Committees, will bring the question of incorporation before the Board of County Commissioners, who will then appoint at their next meeting "some suita ble person to take a census of the residents of the territory to be incorporated." It requires 300 inhabitants to incorporate. This census must be reported to a subsequent meeting of the Commissioners before an election on the question of incorporation can be ordered; and at least 30 days' notice of election must be given by publicationu If the population, as shown by the census; is less than 1,500, the municipality is classi fied as a "town;" if over 1,500 and less than 5,000, a "city of the second class;" all over that a "city of the first class." It is a ques tion that can only be determined by a census whether, with West Deer Lodge ex cluded, we will have 1,500 inhabitants within the municipal boundaries, and on that de pends if it shall be a "city" or a "town"-the distinction amounting to but little, except The Committee has yet the greater portion of their work to do, being principally to have a map made of the town as defined by the" boundaries adopted, to prepare the petition and secure signatures, and to agree on the boundaries of the wards, it being pro vided that cities of the second class shall not have less than two nor more than four. Towns are divided into three districts, with two Aldermen from each, and it would seem best that the Deer Lodge map should be divided into three wards or districts, that whichever classification it may come under the districting will be adequate to the case. The only noticeable division of sentiment at any of these meetings was on the question of the north boundary. The extension 900 feet northward includes principally lands of Mr. S. E. Larabie, who is now absent, but is not one to object strenuously if it is deemed for the public good. The main purpose of this extension urged was that it was neces sary to give municipal officers a- more ex tended jurisdiction over tramps that at times infest the willows thereon, and enable them to pursue and arrest fugitives who might otherwise take safe refuge there. Other than this, the well attended meet ings have been almost unanimous lin ex pression and always characterized by earnestness of purpose. We trust the senti ment will be universal in Deer Lodge. The nanimity of sentiment here in favor of that better government and better condition which can be had through municipal gov ernment, is already spoken of to our credit by press and public elsewhere. If there are those opposed to it, we hope they will re consider before the time comes to vote on incorporation or on officers, and, all uniting in one common purpose for the public good, demonstrate that to the advantagesNature has given us for a beautiful and healthful town, we will add our efforts as a public spirited, progressi"e community that will stand by our town and make it the pride of Montana. Deer Lodge has hitherto been united on matters affecting its general welfare. Let it be so still. And if experience demonstrates that incorporation is not incalculably best for it, the matter of disincorporation is simple; and we here pledge that, if the writer is alive, he will then as earnestly favor disincorporation as he favors incor poration now. He has no fears that day will ever come, or that, incorporated even for a year, and the citizens being true to themselves, a corporal's guard would ever thereafter favor a return to the conditions now existing, but makes the offer as an earnest of his convictions in this movement. IMPORTING HOGS. A Paying Industry Overlooked in Montana. Mr. N. J. Bielenberg returned from Liv ingston Wednesday, whence he had gone to expedite the transit of 800 head of hogs pur chased in Minnesota. These were for Phil ipsburg, Deer Lodge, Anaconda and Butte, and cost over $8,000. Mr. Bielenberg has purchased outside of Montana within the past year over -$0,000 worth of hogs and shinped them into Montana for use in the several meat markets in which he has interests. The pea-fed hogs of Montana make just as palat able meat and are healthier food than the swill and garbage-fed pork brought from the East, while there is certainly big money in raising it. This $50,000 is paid out, by one purchaser only, for imported hogs. Are not our farmers overlooking a good source of in come in not giving more attention to this product. Peas, which make the best of feed, can bewaised and hogs fed and fattened on them cheaper than they can be fed in the States and brought here. The importation shows there is good, cash market for all that can be raised. Would it not be well to de vote more attention to this paying product? Estill's Great Sale To-morrow, Saturday, May 5th, at 10 a. m. is the day and hour fixed for Estill's greal sale of livery horses and buggies and all equipments, includirg the stables anti lots: also a large number of horses and cattle, his farm, residence, etc. This is one of the largest auction sales ever announced in the Territory, and includes very valuable prop erty in all lines. Those desiring to secure bargains should be on hand early, as it is intended that everything shall move promt't ly. The sale will take place in front of the livery stable and stock will be on the prem. ises. NEIGHBORHOOD NEWS.

The highest testimonials of respect were paid to the memory of Dr. Bishop in Butte, in the elegance of floral tributes, the kind words spoken by press and public and the vast cortege that followed his remains to the railway station and the services that were held prior to their removal to Reno, Nev., for interment. He leaves 313,000 life in surance for the benefit of his family. An assortment of soiled doves and sports arrived yesterday from Leadville.

Mr. Ed Bentel, who had nearly lost the sight of his left eye, and who was 33 days under treatment by the eminent oculist, Dr. Knapp of New York, has been greatly im proved and expects soon to have his sight entirely restored. Bishop L. R. Brewer, who is making his annual visitation to the parishes in his dio. cese, arrived from Butte Wednesday and will preach at St. James Church Sunday. The Bishop had been in il! health a few days preceding his coming here, but has materially improved. Col. and Mrs. L. J. Sharp of Butte are at the McBurney house and expect to remain some days, after which they will journey I.isurely throughout the Territory and to the Pacific Coast. They have many friends here and their plan to enjoy life as they go is one worthy of approval. Mr. Ed P. Mills, superintendent, who spent Tuesday night at the Champion mine, says fully 15 inches of snow fell there during the night, the heaviest he had ever seen in the same time. It extended to the valley on the east side, but the fall was light on the Mount Powell side. It has almost vanished already. County Clerk and Recorder Win. M. Thompson returned a week ago from St. Louis and other points, where he was having the fire brick clay of the Company tested and examining machinery for the manufac ure of brick; tile, etc. The clay fulfilled the best expectations. Further mention of the purposes of the Company will be made in a short time. Their many friends in Deer Lodge County, where they for a long time resided, will learn with sorrow that Mrs. Catherine Quin, wife of Mr. John B. Wilson, died in Helena last Monday, in her 59th year. She was stricken with partial paralysis August. 15th aod lost the power of speech, but her condition did not take a dangerous form until last week. She was very highly es teethed. Mr. D. W. Tilton and son of Butte spent a day or two here, on their first visit, this week. "D. W.," barring the snow balls Father Time has hit his hair with, is little changed from the energetic, rustling, genial "D. W." of the olden day, when he published Montana's Pioneer Paper, the Montana Post, in Virginia City, and gave the writer his first employment in a newspaper office. Many happy days to him yet. Butte has organized a Building and Loan Association. Missoula and Billings have had their's for years to the benefit of stock holders and the towns. The Age is urging the organization of one in Boulder. Wei believe it would be well for Deer Lodge to have one. It enables those who have lim ited means, but are able to save and lay by something every month, to invest it in a way there will be fair interest drawn and where by holding a given amount of stock they can borrow money to build them homes. The laws of Montana provide fully for such incorporations. SLEEPLESS NIGHTS, made miserable bythat terrible cough. Shiloh's Cure is the remedy for you.

The ledge is five feet in width, almost all of which is ore giving an average assay of $50 per ton. An assay of a choice pieoe gave $1,600.--Mail. The Mall says a pay streak of about 26 inches has been struck on the San Francisco at the 400 foot level. The output of the Granite Mountain for the week ending April 21st was 61,88621 ounces fine silver. While west Granite stock is not being boomed at present, there is method in the manner of those who do not force it into prominence. The West Granite has the vein. This is reliable, and comes from one in a pobition to know. The "vein" means that the ore body is the same as that of the Granite. This will explain why the stock is not on the market. By the way, who has any West Granite for sale?-Helena Her ald, 30th. About fifty scrapers are busily at work at the smelter surfacing and getting the ground ready for the plant. Right along the river bank the retaining wall has been built. It extends about 100 feet and is 20 feet high. The place selected for the sampling works is nearly opposite the company's office. Four sections of this immense plant will be built, each 186x1,200 feet. The first section will be finished some time in August, and work on the others will be pushed through as rapidly as possible. The grade of the railroad is now rapidly nearing completion. Gangs of men are working at different points and it is proposed to have the grade ready for the iron by May 15th. Considerable delay has been caused by the Manitoba washout. As soon as trains are running regularly an im mense amount of material will arrive-Great Falls Tribune.. General Leggat on Saturday purchased one-half interest in the Hidden Treasure lode in Summit Valley Mining District for 84,000. The property is located immediately north of the Clipper mill.-Miner, 30th. The new machinery of the Bi-Metallic Company at Philipsburg has been received. It consists of two 1,200-pound boilers, at tached to which are self-condensing, patent conducting engines, which are to be used for the purpose of giving additional hoisting power. Superintendent Ed P. Mills came down from the Champion Wednesday. The works were started up the day before and the ma chinery worked to a charm. Tea men are employed and sinking will progress rapidly. Superintendent McMaster was at the Mountain Lion a few days ago. The ore vein is fourteen feet wide at the cross-cut, showing a well defined porphyry hanging wall, but the cross-cut was being pushed on for the granite hanging wall. Good pro gress is also being made in the tunnel and it is nearing another heavy shoot of ore that crops on the surface. The tunnel is now at a depth of 140 feet vertical and gaining depth very rapidly. The United States Grand Jury. Deputy U. S. Marshal McTague has sum. moned to appear as U. S. Jurors in Butte next week the following residents of Deer Lodge: Grand Jurors-J. E. Van Gundy, Peter Valitan; James M. Bailey and Phil E. Evans. Trial Jurors-W. N. Aylesworth, Moritz Bien, Wm. Coleman, W. B. Miller and C. P. H. Bielenberg. We think McTague took a special pleasure in serving the subpenna on Mr. Miller. It is only a year or two since he took his first ride on a Montaba railroad and has never yet been in Butte. Mr. Miller denies the justice of the Department of Justice in enticing him from the fair land of Deer Lodge to the temptations of the Wicked City, and thinks of leasing Dr. Beal's old porcelain lined "Centennial" safe and mak ing his abiding place there except when Court is in session. Removal of Postal Clerk Coehrane. Capt. C. C. Cochrane, who for nearly two years past has been Postal Clerk on the Butte and Helena run, has been relieved of duty by orders from the Chief of the Rail way Mail Service at Washington, on charges of negligence of duty, etc. We cannot be lieve this charge well founded. It has been intimated that he is charged with being the instigator of criticisms that were made by Montana newspapers regarding the scandal ously bad postal service we have had in Montana. So far as the NEW NOaTH-WEsT is concerned this is wholly false, as he never prepared, asked, encouraged or instigated, directly or indirectly, a word of that charac ter that appeared in this paper. We did it entirely of our own knowledge and volition, and did not tell a tenth of the inefficiency. miscarriages and delays that came to our knowledge simply because their continuous ness and repetition wore us out. It is now, and has been, simply abominable service. But during all this time we have never learned ofa single act of carelessness or in efhciency that we believed attributable to Clerk Cochrane. He proposes to hunt these charges down and If he has been wrongly charged, as we believe he has, we hope to see him show up where the fault really is and be set right. "MICHAEL STROGOFF." A Good Dramatle Entertainment Monday Evening. On Monday evening last the George Wes sells Dramatic Company appeared at Cotton wood Hall in the dramatization of Jules Vernes work-Michael Strogoff. The play is a strong but not pleasing one, the dramati zation bordering it up to the blood and thunder class. The presentation was, how ever, remarkably good. Mr. Wessells repre sented the detestable Ivan Ogaref in a mas terly manner, while Mr. Chas. Chapelle, aside from the sympathy naturally extended to Michael Strogof, won equal honors, if he did not excel, in the title roll. Mr. Murphy, who is a worthy favorite in Montana, and r. Deal, lightened up the play pleasantly with their genial rows and generous friend ships. Miss Lillian Owen as Nadia, and Mrs. Belle Douglass as Marlha Strogoff did excellently. In fact, the company is ex ceptionally good, and although working on a small stage without the accessories of their special scenery, gave us a fine entertain ment. Mr. Tony Ward was in charge of the Company and a large audience witnessed and approved the performance. We hope to see them again in some other of the plays in their repertoire.

[985 1y MULLAN TUNNEL The Fire Practlcally Extinguiashed and the "Overhead" in Operation. The fire which began in the Mullan Tunnel snow sheds a week ago yesterday and communicated to the timber in the tunnel, is reported to be extinguished, and the over head line has been in successful operation several days, only a slight delay being occa sioned in putting in the frogs at the connec tions with the main line, and in leveling up the overhead line, which had not been in use for several months. Passenger and freight trains are now running, with but a little delay in getting over the hill. The fire not having been discovered at once, the draft drew the flames into the tunnel, and but for the closing and banking up'of the east end doors might have been carried a great distance-in fact, clear through the timbered portions of the tun nel if the fire had volume and draft enough to jump the untimbered places. It is. re ported, however, not to have "jumped" the first rock space, which begins only 150 feet from the'west end. The burnt shed Itimbers are being removed as rapidly as possible and the track relaid. Of course the extent of damage done the tunnel cannot be defi nitely ascertained until the fire as all out and the tunnel cleared of smoke, but even if there is a cave at the mouth, or in 150 feet that can be repaired. It seems to us, however, that the North ern Pacific, if it proposes to continue use of the Mullan route, and it is not apparent how it can now do else, should arch the tunnel and replace the east side wooden trestles with iron ones. Aside from the danger of fire, they are getting aged now, as the life of such trestliug goes, and they cannot be re placed too soon. The' Northern Pacific Co. having, in defiance of all the good advice offered them, chosen that route as against better ones, they should make it as secure as possible, and that calls for arching and trestles. The Map Offer Withdrawn. The offer of Houghton's political and county map of the United States which has been offered to Naw NORTH-WEsT subscribers the past few weeks, in combination with the paper, is hereby withdrawn. The rate at which it was offered was, as stated, based on an error as to the cost with delivery guaran teed, but we concluded to stand it if our subscribers seemed to generally desire it. There have not, however, a sufficient num ber taken advantage of the proposition to warrant us in purchasing in the large lots which must be done to secure low figures, and we therefore cancel the offer.
