pass, canyon, or defile for the purposes of
its road, in common with the road first
located, or the crossing of other railroads
at grade; and the location of such right of
way through any canyon, pass, or defile
shall not cause the disuse of any wagon

A Runaway.
A team belonging to one of the Connolly
ros. took fright Saturday morning and ran
Way. The driver, Hubert Moran, was
iading household goods for Great Falls at
. C. Power & Bro's warehouse. When
lie animals started he grabbed the lines,
11(1 attempted to hold them in but finding
le could nsot do so, jumped from th$ wagon
tnd struck on his side, injuring him pret
Y Severely. The horses ran around the
Vareheuse, struck one of the posts on the
Vee, which set them free from the wagon,
.Id finally brought up in the corral back
IfWackerlin's store. Twenty dollars will
over the damage.
Capture of the "Kid."
Chas. Rogers, alias "the kid," forger
Ind bad citizen generally, was captured
'hursday by Deputy Sheriff Coatsworth i
t the mouth of the Dry fork on the Ma
hIS. When the deputy sheriff came upon I
inf he was indulging in the luxury of a 1
ath. He first accosted Coatsworth, and (
Sked him where he was going.
"To Macleod," says Tom.
"That just strikes me and if you have <
O objections I'll go along with you." t
"All right," Tom replied, "jump right 1
*" The kid did so and was taken to Fort t
0nrad, nothing being said about arresting n
int. The following morning when Tom f
n" as getting his receipts for meals and 0
dging the youngster spied the name oft
heriff McDevitt on the receipt. He
emed quite astonished and told Coats
orth that he would be d---d if he went s
ek to town alive in the buggy. Tom
as equally emphatic. and sid "I'll be a
d if you don't." Suiting the aci.on i3
the word, he collared the young man a;
and politely assisted him into the buggy,
brought him to town, and lodged him
h safely in jail. The evidence against him
seems to be conclusive.
The kid was brought up for examination
s' in the probate court Saturday morning.
. After the usual interrogations, he was
is asked what he had to say.
"H-1, I'm guilty," was the response.
y "Do you wish to enter that as your
., plea," asked the judge mildly. "I don't
)s want to see no lawyers; I did it fast
d enough," he answered.
On the strength of this he was bound
over in the sum of $500 to await the action
r of the grand jury. In default of bail he
t was committed to the county jail.
The River.
r- The steamer Benton was launched last
n Tuesday.
r The Benton and Judith, the largest boats
on the upper river, will be on their way to
o the head of navigation in a short time.
Capt. Joe Todd is coming up this time
e fully cocked and primed with a speech, in
d case he should meet another reception.
This is what the Tribuye says about it:
The Rosebud will leave for Fort Benton
o to-day, and Captain Todd, who nearly lost
h two of his men yesterday through their ex
r hibition of pugilistic friendship, says that
he will take as fine a speech of acknowl
edgement and thanks with him as has ever
been delivered from the hurricane deck of
a steamboat. He asserts that the people of
Benton surprised him so completely that
he did not do himself justice, and he is now
d waiting for an opportunity to redeem his
reputation as an orator.
f A Posthumous Election Paper Picked
e up on the Street.
A lot of waste paper was dumped out in
the street recently, and the winds of spring
prevailing at the time soon scattered them
along thoroughfares in all directions.
Among the lot an old telegram was picked
up by the breeze and carried far away.
How long it gyrated around town is not
known, but yesterday it was noticed flut
tering along the sidewalk by a citizen of
Helena, who out of idle curiosity picked it
up and read it. , It was evidently a docu
ment of some past political canmpaign in
which the "Old War Horse" scented, the
battle from afar and galloped to the breach.
The telegram is dated Benton, 25th
neither month nor year given-and is ad
dressed to a prominent Democrat chief
tain of Helena, who was then in Miles
City. It reads as follows:
BENTON, 25, 188-.
Information to hand that there are one
hundred and fifty votes at the crossing of
the Little Missouri which need doctoring.
As Sanders' medicine has been adminis
tered, send some one to prescribe an

Sheriff's Sales.
According to the published notices the
sale ofproperty. under a decree of the
court took place last Friday. The prop
erty advertised ivas the Healy premises on
Front street now occupied by Joseph Sul
livan, and the Arnoux pre-emption and
homestead on Highwood. Mr. T. E.
Collins was the only bidder on the Healy
property, and it was knocked down to him
at $1,600. The Arnoux pre-emption was
sold to Isaac Mee for-$1,600 and the home
stead for $1,000, but one bidder appearing
in each case.
:The property involved in the case of I.
G. Baker vs. John J. Healy was sold un
der a decree of the court Saturday morning
and was represented in the following lots;
11 and 12 in block 155, lots 5 to 14, inclu
sive, in block 27 and lot 23 in block 16.
The sale included only Mr. Healy's inter
est in the property, and what that interest
is was not definitely known. The bid
ding was therefore nominal, and the
property was knocked down to I. G. Ba
ker & Co.
Almost Drowned.
George Hall, one of the cowboys em
ployed by Floweree, was nearly drowned
in the Mariasa few days ago. He ,at
tempted to cross the stream where the wa
ter was very deep and horse and rider
went out of sight and were carried down
the stream fully one hundred yards before
Hall again came to the surface. He imme
diately sank again and as he came up an
other cowboy went into the stream an'
managed to get him ashore. He was un
conscious, but the heroic measures usually
taken on such occasions were applied with
good effect, and he soon recovered. The
horse was drowned and it seems almost a
miracle that Hall had not shared the same
fate. Hall is a nephew of Sam Hall an:
old time resident of Helena who died sevy
eral years ago.

L. W. Bates, Who Has the Contract for
Laying the M. C. Rails, States a
Case in Point.
Mr. L. W. Bates, the principal member
S of a large firm of contractors and lumber
dealers in Washington territory, arrived
In the city Thursday from Great Falls
r and returned next morning. Mr. Bates
t has secured the contract for laying all the
t rails of the Montana Central, and he ex
pects to begin work by July 1st--if the
l deadlock does not interfere--and continue
until all the track is laid as 'ar as graded.
e Mr. Bates is not unfamiliar with this con
try, having passed through with Thomas
P. Roberts and party, who made a recon
noissance for the Northern Pacific railway
company in 1872.
As regards shipping rails by river Mr.
Bates informed the RIVEJR PRESS represen
tative that he was engaged at one time. in
laying track in -Washington territory when
all the material was shipped by river, and
the obstacles to be overcome were much
1 greater than would be experienced in ship
ping up the Missouri. They were compelled
to handle the material several times, ship
1 ping by steamer up the Columbia until.
t the rapids were reached, and then 're-ship
ping to a narrow-gauge road around the
rapids, and again transferring to a steam
er. At all the rapids, two or three in
number, the same programme was gone
through, and still the material was laid
down for $7.00 per ton.
The firm of Bates & Co. are engaged in
the lumber business very extensively, hav
ing several mills and yards at different
points in Washington territory. Mr.
Bates expressed himself as being surprised
to find Fort Benton such a substantial
town, for at the time of his former visit
the place bore no such evidences of pros
perity. He shares the belief of every one
who has visited the city that a bright fu
ture is before us and a season of great
business activity will in due time overtake

ý A Itilroad Report.
LY. It was reported nla railroad circles last
ot night that the engineers of, the, western
it- extension of the. Mar-itoba h(fd reach#
of Fort Buford, and the Missouri: river, aaa
it that the construction corps -Wottld follow
u- fast after them.-Independent.
he The Missouri River Rouse.
Of all the methods of reaching the east
which are offered to us we commend the
river route as being one of the most de4
es lightful steamboat trips in America. Itis
certain that nowhere can be found such aI
diversity of scenery. After leaving Ben
ne ton on one of the elegantly appointed.
of steamers of the famous Power line, the 1
g. traveler is treated to surprises innumera- I
s ble. The boat glides swiftly down the t
stream, and for a distance of more than t
one hundred miles below the mouth of the (
Marias there is brought to view some of t
the grandest and most picturesque scenery i
on the continent.' What particularly at- I
ie tracts the attention is the wonderful rock I
ie formations in the vicinity of. Eagle creek. r
Here the rocks assume such fantastic t
in shapes that it only requires the slightest r
1 help of the imagination to make it appear i:
as if one were living in another age, sur- o
D. rounded, as it seems, by lordly palaces and b
Y temples. Huge walls which might have
n been laid by a race of giants, Cathedril p
s rock with its towers and domes shining in I
the sun, make up a picture which will i0t S
g soon be forgotten. Citadel rock, Steam- tl
boat rock, and other wonderful forma- t(
tions are passed in rapid succession and' .0
when they are passed and the main feature
g of the scenery and the bold bluffs covered
with fir and pine give place to the prairie
country, the awe which the traveller has
felt gives way to a normal feeling. Stiji,
after all, the entire trip is not devoih· -:of
interest; as the military posts and Indian
agencies are visited the feeling of weari
e ness which might otherwise 6vertake one,
is happily obviated. A volume would
scarcely contain the wonders to be seen.
All this taken into consideration with the
courteous treatment received4 While on Sp
- board one of these steamers adds greatly
I to the enjoyment of the trip. It is a rule kt
with the company to employ only codipe- 'th
tent, reliable men to have the manage- WI
ment of their boats and the excellent .ser- is
vice which is noticable is due to this fact foi
alone. The best pilots and engineers an
make the trip even more safe than if tray- w
elling in a Pullman car. Again we com- av
mend the Great River Route to the east.
Northern Pacific Branches.
Speaking of branch lines Gen. Ander
son'sLid the grader= were making rapid
progress on the Spokane Falls & Palouse,
and would have twenty-five miles ready
for the tracklayers es soon aS. the; .te
could be gotten there. It is now pxopose
to build -he Bimini bran~ih tfrom WIckes'
4nstdta of Helena, as a beter lineocan be
found. The disetance fro WEk to e Ri
mini is eighteen miles, Surveys for the
nuew line are now makintg. TTe# wi1 be

Sa' the prwoifles have `been" i i e and
the bids received. Work upon the chang
ing of the grade of the Utah & Northern
from Garrison to Butte has "so far been
confined to getting the necessary material
in readiness. This will be done within
the next week or two, and work will then
be commenced along the line.-Pioneer
The Glorious Fourth.
As the 4th of July approaches it occurs
to us that nothing has been done towards
a proper- and patriotic observance of the
day. Two years ago big preparations
were made, and the goddess of liberty in
a chariot, surrounded by allegorical fig
ures representing the thirteen original
states, followed by citizens on horseback,
in carriages and on foot, preceded by the
Fort Assinaboine band, were among the
attractive features of the day. We do
hope that the patriotism of the residents
of Fort Benton has not been allowed to
die out, and that the glorious and immor
tal heroes, who with their blood cemented
the foundation and raised the fair fabric
of the republic will ever remain fresh in
the hearts of the people. If we fail to
celebrate the children growing up amongst
us Will be inquiring who Washington was,
'what he did, and what he did it for. The
judicious expenditure of a small amount
will suffice to keep his memory green in
the hearts of the rising generation. Even
if it is necessary to sacrifice an eye or a
finger by the injudicious use of powder,
at all events, the boy who is to be maimed
will never forget Washington or the 4th
of July. We would be glad to see a meet
ing held and a subscription paper started
for the purpose of finding out how much
can be raised to purchase powder, fire
works, etc., and pay an artilleryman. Al
most any one will receive subscriptions
for this worthy and patriotic purpose. If
this cannot be done let us have a picnic,
a spread-eagle oration and other concomi
tants. By all means let, us celebrate.
The First National Bank of Great Falls.
Special to the River Press.
HELENA, May 28.-The First National
Bank of Great Falls yesterday assumed
definite shape. The paid up capital stock

The Montana Oentral.
1 Special to the River Press.
HELENA, May 28.-C. A. Broadwater,
1. who has just returned from the east, says
that no arrangements have been made with
the Northern Pacific relative to freight
tariff on the rails, and there is no prospect
t that they will be immediately shipped.
On the Rimini division the grade will be
completed by Saturday, and if the rails
were on hand trains would be running to
Rimini in fifteen days. On the Great
Falls division the surveyors are now run
ning lines on both sides of the Missouri
to determine the preferable route, but
more particularly the best point for bridg
ing. The choice lies between the vicinity
of Ulidia and near the falls. Other things
being equal, the falls will be chosen.
Hill has been thinking for some time
past about building a through line from
Helena to the head of navigation on Lake
Superior. His line will likely consist of
three divisions, one from Helena to Ben
ton, one from Benton to Devil's lake, and
.one from Devil's lake to Duluth.
A Boom in Granite Mountain.
Special to the Rive Press.
ST. Louis, May 26.-Some excitement
was caused to-day by the receipt of a tel
egram from the Granite Mountain mine
in Montana that an immense vein had
been discovered and that $23,000,000 were
in sight. The stock rose to $26 per share.
Rewards Offered.
Special to the River Press.
WASHINGTON, May, 26.-Nothing is
known at, the war department regarding
the action of Gen. Miles in offering re
wards for the Apaches, dead or alive. It
is stated that if such is the case it is an act
for which Gen. Miles alone is responsible
and that it will not be sanctioned by the
war department. There are no funds
available for such a purpose.
SAN FRANCISCO, May 26.-The reward
for the heads of Indians was not made by
Gen. -Miles, but it was made by the citi
zens of the territory. They requested
that the money be paid through Gen.

An Attempt to Hold up the Glendale Coach
-The Driver Shot and Killed.
MELROSE, M. T., May 22.-The stage
running between this place and Glendale,
owned by J. T. Murphy & Co. of Helena,
was held up by road agents this evening
about nine o'clock, two miles from here.
The Driver, George Ferguson, was shot
and killed, but no one else was hurt.
There were five passengers on the stage
two men, two ladies and a little girl. As
the stage was passing between the bluff
and the creek a man stepped out and said
"whoa," and instantly fired at the driver
with a shotgun. Four or five buck shot
entered the driver's right eye. He fell for
ward over the dashboard and struck on the
tongue and doubletrees. T. C. Merchant,
a traveling man from San Francisco, who
was riding by his side, caught him and
succeeded in keeping him from falling to
the ground. As soon as the gun was dis
charged the team started to run away.
Mr. Ledoux, a business man of Glendale,
who was riding on the second seat, stepped
over into the driver's seat, caught the mail
bag, which was slipping out of the coach,
and took the reins and drove into Glendale
at full speed. Sheriff Jones and a posse
of armed and mounted men are scouring'
the couutry in all directions. The road
agent was dressed in a canvas 'suit and
wore a white hat. A reward of two hun
dred and twenty-five dollars is offered for
the capture of the guilty party.
British Cabinet Council.
LONDON, May 22.-The cabinet met at
noon and is still in session. The confer
ence is generally regarded as exception
ally important and as bearing directly on
the political crisis. When the cabinet had
been in session half an hour a special
messenger was dispatched after Baron
Herschell, lord high chancellor. He was
at the time engaged in a great lawsuit, but
the nature of his summons induced him
to cancel his engagement and repair at
once to the cabinet meeting. It is stated
that the cabinet will certainly decide
whether or not the government will dis
solve parliament and go to the country on
the premier's irieb policy.
SLA'p.--.~ n meeting of the cabinet
lasted an hour and twenty minutes. A
few minutes after adjournment Gladstone
started for Windsor castle tosee the queen.
It is rumored that he will advise the queen
to immediately dis-olve parliament.
Duluth and Winnipeg Railroad.
DULUTH, May 24.-Winston Bres., rail
road contractors, have completed their con
tract with the St. Paul & Duluth road here,
and were preparing to move their outfits
to Minneapolis. This morning they re
ceived word from J. J. Hill to stay here,
as there would be work in a short time.
It is reported that this means that Mr. Hill
will build the Duluth & Winnipeg railroad,
beginning at once.
To be Captured or Killed.
WILCOX, A. T., May 24.-The Indians
having been forced into a small section of
country north of the railroad and troops
after each of the bands, and every water
hole guarded, it is only a question of a
very short time when they will be sur
rounded and captured. They are all head
ed for the San Carlos reservation, where
they will meet with quite a different re
ception from former times, as the orders
are imperative to kill all the hostiles ap
proaching the reservation, which is well
guarded by troops and friendly Indians.
General Miles has offered $50 rewards for
each Indian or head of an Indian brought t
in here, and $2,000 for Geronimo or his r
Depressed Wheat Trade.
LONDON, May 24.-The foreign wheat
trade is very depressed. Sellers of Rus
sian and American wheats are. lowering
their demands which has tended to enerv
ate the market. The cheapness of Amer
ican flour also perturbs the market. It is
being offered at rates which are perhaps
the lowest on record.
The Greek and the Turks.
ATHENS, May 25.-Both the Greek and
Turkish armies are' mutually surrender
ing the prisoners and positions they re
spectively captured during the frontier
fighting of the last few days, and both ar
mies will to-day commence returning
from the frontier.
A Hosiery Assooiation.
PHILIDELPHIA, May 28.-Forty-seven 1
hosiery manufacturers, employing over
12,000 hands, met in this city yesterday
and organized'for mutual protection. The
organizitlon is the result of recent demands 1
by the employes.

CLEVELAND, May 28.-The Knights of
Labor held two gessions to-day. The
cominitt.=tirnl~g presented a report re
commending that the general executive
commaitee be iucieased' froiiive to eleven :
members. After an hour's discussion the
recommendation was agreed to. The new
members will be elected by ballot and
serve during the unexpired year, which
ends in October. Permnt nent headquarters
are to be opened in Phiadelphia, and if
necessary the board will sit throughout
year. A resolution was adopted giving
Powderly the power to recall the commis
sions of all the organizers.
Capital Gleanings.
WASHINGTON, May 22.-Col. Lewis
Merrill of the 7th cavalry, having been
found incapacitated for active service, is
placed upon the retired list from to-day.
WASHINGTON, May 24.-The senate com
mittee on commerce are engaged every day
in the consideration of the river and harbor
bill. Few changes are made as it passed
the house, though there are important
amendments pending.
The votes to-day on the oleomargarine

Parliamentary Fight.
ST.PAUL,May 27.-A Winnipeg special to
the Pioneer Press says: In the legislature
to-day a motion of confidence in the Nor
quay Government was defeated. So hot
was the discussion thereon that on opposi
tioni member crossed the floor after the de-
bate and called the Premier Norquay a

promptly hit his assailant and a fight fol
lowed, though the contestants were' soon

e Piercing the Park With Steel.
a WASHINGTON, May 26.-In reply to in
quiries as to the advisability of the Con
struction of the Cinabar and Clark's Fork
railroad in the Yellowstone park, Gen.
Sheridan has written a letter saying:
A railroad through the park is not in har
mony with the objects for which the res
ervation was created, and if permitted
would be a precedent for various others
already projected. The game is collecting
in great numbers, and if not disturbed will
continue to do so.
Rufus Hatch of New York was heard
in opposition to the road.
Dominion Legislation.
OTTAWA, Ont., May 26.-To-night the
senate defeated the Chinese bill. This
means that Chinamen can come and go as
they please. The people of British Col
umbia ought to have been satisfied with the
measure as it was, instead of risking it for
the sake of a few trifling amendments, to
the death which it has met. A discussion
took place on Riel, Senator Trudel leading
the fight. He spoke for over three hours.
Eads' Schemes.
WASHINGTON, May 28.-Senator Conger
presented in the Senate to-day a report of
the commerce committee on the Eads' ship
railway bill. In the report the committee
says the project is a practicable one and
that the net annual revenues of the road
will be in excess of the amount guaran
teed by Mexico and the United States.
The opinion is expressed that the aggregate
amount ($7,500,000) will not have to be ad
vanced by the government. The commit
tee report back the accompanying bill as a
substitute for senate bill No.584, with the
recommendation that it do pass.
Hudson Bay Project.
Winnipeg special: The local legislature
d has cabled the president of the Hudson Bay
railway, now in England, that their prov
- ince will guarantee bonds of the road .to
rl the amount of $45,000,000 at 4 per cent. for
25 years. Work must be commenced forth
5 with and be equal in standard to the Cana
dian Pacific and the road must be complet
ed in five years.
Rufus Hatch opposed the bill permitting
2 the building of a rail way in the Yellow
r stone park before the house committee on
r public lands on the ground that the rail.
3 road would get control of the whole Yel
lowstone river by the. terms of the bill.
The dominion government will build a
railroad between Causo and Sidney, C. B,,
eighty miles, to develop the mineral re
gion and give the cape people connection
with the Candian ..railway system.,
