The case of the state against Fred Boy
son, charged with assault in the second
degree on C. F. Arnold in the Butte brew
ery saloon about three months ago, was
to have been tried, but when it was called
the same old stumbling block in the shape
of an absent complaining witness was en
countered and the judge dismissed the
action. Paul Kohler, another witness, but
not an important one, was also missing.
After the prisoner and jurymen had left
the room the county attorney stated that
two or three months ago Arnold had
made a proposition to Boyson to settle the
trouble for $175, but he had heard of it
and notified the principals and middle
men that the consummation of such an
act would result in further complications.
Since then Arnold had disappeared. In
dismissing the action the judge stated
that Arnold could not be found by the

Livingston. Mont., Now 29, 1899.
Charles Le Hoy. a cook, who has been
in the employ of George Hoppe at Cinna
bar for some time past, was arrested in
this city Sunday afternoon for stealing a
team and buggy from W. C. Williams,
who keeps a livery stable at Horr. Le Hoy
went to Williams' place last Friday ami
hired the outfit, saying in* wanted to drive
to Sylvester's, three miles distant. As
i he did not return in a reasonable time
i Mr. Williams became suspicious and
started out on horseback to look for the
outfit. On arriv ing at Sylvester's he was
informed that Leltoy had not been there,
so he s'tarted for Livingston. On his way
down he got trac k of Leltoy tit Fridley,
where he had stopped long enough to
I borrow a few dollars and an overcoat,
claiming he was only going to Trail creek
for Mr. Hope. O 11 arriving at Livingston
at 11 o'clock Saturday evening Mr. Wil
i liams went to Miles Bros.' stables and
' found that LcRoy had been there and
1 had departed only 2rt minutes before,
stating he was going out to Woods' ranch.
; Leltoy drove out in the country about
1 ten miles, then apparently changed Ids
i mind, as he got another man to drive the
team back to this city and he started
, back off foot. The officers were on the
! lookout for him and he was arrested as
soon as he reached town. Le Roy had
I made several unsuccessful attempts to
j sell the outfit. The prisoner was brought
! before Justice Wilson yesterday after
noon for trial and was bound over to the
district court.

Remarkable Experience of a
Parrot Timberman.
His Name is Walter Greider
of the Fall Broken B5'
Walter Greider was born under a
lucky star. He fell 60 feet down the
Parrot shaft this morning and lives, but
that is about all. He' lies on a bed of
pain at the Sisters' hospital, swathed
in bandages, with his skull fractured and
his right shoulder crushed. But he is
conscious, and talked to his friends, who
were at his bedside this morning, about
his singular experience. The doctors
who attended him are of the opinion
that he will recover.
About 8:30 o'clock this morning Grei
der, who is a timberman, and a man
named W. T. Williams were engaged
in timbering a raise on the 800-foot level
of the mine. The raise was timbered to
the sill floor. Greider asked Williams
for a saw, and as it was handed to him
he stepped on a sill across the raise to
get the tool. The sill was a heavy 5x10
piece of timber, and when his weight
rested on it it broke in the middle and
Greider went down the raise like a shot
out of a gun.
There were several offsets in the raise,
and because of this fact Greider is alive
today. He was picked up on the fifth
floor of tile 900-foot level and removed to
the Sisters' hospital.
Greider is a married man and resides
at No. 250 East Galena street.
The season for marketing western cat
tle from the range is practically finished.
A few more belated shipments may ar
rive but it is not probable that anything
more will ceine to greatly increase the
year's receipts or materially affect the
recorded range of prices, says the Chi
cago Drover s Journal, an authority on
stock matters.
Receipts for the year to date foot up
close ta 1S0.UU0 head, as against 185,516 for
all last year, 233,531 m 1S»7, 271,925 in 1896
and 436,926 in 1895. The season's supply
was the smallest since 1889, when but
H'U,396 were received. That there was a
decrease in this year's supply was no
surprise to ranchmen, many of whom
expected .a greater shortage than the
figures show.
In many respects the season just clos
ed has been a very satisfactory one.
Prices have been exceptionally good and
show the highest ranee since 1891, and
with few exceptions the highest in over
29 years. It is generally conceded that
prices tiiis year show an increase of $5«t
$7 per head over last year, which means
over a million dollars more for tin
northwestern ranchman. Steers ranged
in price from $3.50 to $5.70 .only a com
paratively few tailings and feeders sell
ing below $4, while the bulk of the be*
steers brought $4.35414.75, the averag
being about $4.60.
The market was not characterized V.
any violent fluctuations during the sea
son. Sales were made mostly within a
25c range, the lowest sag being in Oc
tober, though toward the close of the
month the quality was not so good.. The
season finished in good shape a consign
ment from Wyoming selling November
20 at $5.70, the highest point of the year.
Close to 8,000 cattle sold about the $5
mark during the season. Of the cattle

Philadelphia Post: The Earl of Dun
raven is a Tory of the most militant,
shellback typo, and at the same time he
ruined his reputation in America by his
charges against the yacht Defender,
which afterward he was unable to sub
stantiate, he seriously impaired bis popu
larity over here. Englishmen object to a
fellow countryman making an exhibition
of himself, and the general impression
here is that His Lordship acted foolishly.
Only the other day Lord Dunraven re
ceived a gentle reminder that his fatuous
charges against American yachtsmen
were not forgotten by any means. He is
one of the reactionary members of the
London School board. If only citizens of
