The wrestling mateh which was to have been pulled off last ni»ht at Great Falls, between Jack O'Neill of Kalispell, and Jack Allin, did not materialize.

Graves, who has been in the county jail for some time, charged with being implicated in the shootin affray, which occurred at the Halfwa house near Havre this winter, was re leased from custody this morning. His release was ordered by the court, he being held with Frank Gautz, who pleaded guilty to the charge, and was sentenced by Judge Tattan to three years in the penitentiary for assault in the second degree. Through an oversight, the notice of the city election held last Monday was omitted in yesterday's paper. The election passed oil' very quietly. There being but oue ticket iu the field, 110 in terest was taken in the result by our citizens and consequently a very light vote was polled. The officers elected are: City treasurer, J no. C. Sullivan: police magistrate, Jere Sul livan; aldermen, first ward, J. E. Tem pleton; second ward, Oscar Johnston; third ward, James Townsend. From Thursday's Daily. Chas.

If the editor of the Great Falls Tri bune would kindly devote more of his spare time to writing credits ou news items clipped from the River Press, perhaps the riot mentioned in this morninffà issue, of the Carie Natiou style, would not have appeared.

Attention is hereby called to Section ! 4 of Chapter S, of the town ordinance ■ regarding nuisances, aud all persons ' must clean up their premises, streets au 1 alleys before May 1.: j Section 4. If any person shall j throw, place, or conduct, or stiller 1 any meiuboi' of his or her family to j throw, place or conduct into any pub-| lie grounds, street, alley or lot, or i upon any sidewalk, any putrid or caving meat, fish, fowl, hide's or skius of any kind, or any kind of filth, offal, dung, dead animals, vege Maps ol" the Milk River Section Included In Reservoir Sites to he Published. • Topoyraphic maps of an area of about «Or- square miles in northern Montana, surveyed during 1902, are now in process of preparation by the United States Geological Survey, though they will probably not be pub lished for some time yet. One of the chief objects of the sur vey of this region, which lies on both sides of Milk river near Havre and Chinook, in Chouteau county, was to determine what area, if any, could be profitably served with water from the proposed St. Mary canal. The maps will be published on a scale of about one mile to the inch, and will show a large number of points exactly determined as to posi tion and also as to their elevation above the sea. Hence the height of any point within this area can be de termined very closely from the con tour lines of equal altitude which rep resent every change of twenty feet in vertical elevatiou. From the positions of these contours it can be readily seen what must be the approximate location of main and subsidiary canals leading from the source of supply to any available area, and the comparative cost of various canal schemes cau be deter mined without necessity of a special survey for each case. The maps, four in number, are named from the principal towns with in the area, and are known as Assin niboine, Havre, Yantic and Chinook. Each covers and area of 15 minutes iu latitude and longitude, and in addi tion to the elevations and contours in brown, shows all roads, railroads, towns and houses in black, and all streams, ponds and irrigation canals in blue. The maps may be obtained from the Director of the United States Geological Survey, for the nominal price of 5 cents each. Letter List.

PATTEKSON, Fort Benton, Mont. a raid on chinatown. Immigration Agent Hampton Has an Exciting Time For a Little While. Helena , April T.— There was more excitement in Chinatown Wednesday than has been in evidence in that quarter for many a day and it was all on account of an unexpected visit of Immigration Agent Hampton of Great Falls and two inspectors of Chinese. It was a wild scene while it lasted and the Chinamen scattered in all direct ions. As a result of the raid four Celestials are now held in custody on the charge of being illegally in the United States. Agent Hampton hid a narrow es cape while routing out one of the Chi namen, for the latter was armed with a larsre pitchfork with which he in tended to defend himself. Mr. Hampton had been in the city but a short time and while strolliog through the Chinese quarter saw the large lodging house next the city hall aud getting his two inspectors and Deputy United States Marshal Chas. F. Gage, began a search. They enter ed the building unexpectedly and i panic ensued among the Chinese. Po liceman J. A. Mackey came to the a: sistance of the officers and every av enue of escape was guarded. Two Chinamen, neither of whom could speak English, and clad in the garments of white men, several sizes too large for them, were fonnd con cealed in one of the rooms and were promptly escorted to the city jail and placed iu the "bridal chamber." Search was then made through cellars, attics and underground passages. Mi'. Gage had taken a station at the south doorway and saw two Celestials peeping over the fence to ascertain if anyone was on guard. They were quickly waved back, however, by a Chinaman stationed in the street, and disappeared. Mr. Gage saw them and soon Mr. Hampton was on the trail. He jumped the fence and found one of the men in a small outhouse. It was some time before the other one was located. Mr. Hampton descended a narrow stairway, leading underground and owing to the change from light to darkness, was unable to see anything for a brief period. He had almost reached the bottom of the ladder when he saw a Chinaman at least six feet tall aud armed with a pitchfork. Whipping out his revolver, Mr. Hampton commanded him to drop the weapon and follow him up the ladder, which lie did. Only oue more China man was caught and then the entire crowd was taken before United States Commissioner F. P. Sterling, where the examination was conducted by ! ' "nited States District Attorney Carl ■ Kasch and Mr. Hampton. One of the ' crovvd showed his papers and was re oasec] ' but Sau Ha Ching, Wong yee Chu atul Wong Chung had hear ill " d befol ' e Commissioner Sterling were ordered deported. * * Butte , April 7.—The Butte police do-.force believe that iu the person of Joseph C. Williams, alias John Nel son, who was arrested and confessed to burglarizing a big hardware store • Ail Important Arrest. of the city of several thousaud dol lars' worth of goods last week, they have the notorious multi-murderer James DuuliaYn, who is alleged to have killed an entire family in south ern California in 18%. The officers declare there is a remarkable resem blauee between the prisoner and Dun ham, even to minute details aud tiie facts which they cla'm and refuse to disclose, they say, are such to war rant the belief that the prisoner is the California fugitive, who has been chased over two continents. Under a severe sweating Williams admitted having lived in California. Further he refused to talk. Upon Williams' person were found skeleton keys and burglar»' nippers, revolver cartridges and a long knife in his trousers leg. Considerable corres pondence was fouml, it is said, bear ing Sau Francisco date marks. Wil liams was captured after a hard chase at the point of a gun. His arrest fol lowed after bis actions had aroused the suspicions of a roomer occupying quarters adjoining those of Williams. Cou I Mine to Resume.
