I)., who is in Neihart to hold the * annual conference of the North Montana Mission, is one of the best known bishops of the great Methodist Episcopal church, which he repre sents, having a constituency in the United States of 5,000,000. This is Bishop Fowler's third visit to Montana, in which state, arid its moral and spiritual welfare, he manifests a lively interest. As president of the North western LDiversity at Chicago, some years ago, he made a remarkable rec ord, and as editor of the largest church paper, the N. Y. Christian Advo cate, his success was phenominal. Bishop Fowler ranks second to none for eloquence and elevated oratory. His lecture on "Abraham Lincoln," which is to be given in Frisco hall in Neihart Monday night next, is one of the masterpieces in oratory of the century. Bishop Fowler goes to Helena by way of Great Falls Tuesday to hold the session of the Montana conference. METHODIST CONFERENCE IS NOW IN SESSION. On Wednesday evening the op ening session of the Methodist Con ference at Neihart began. At 7:30 Rev. A. W. Hammer of Dupuyer led a spirited song service. At 8 o'clock, Rev. F. L. Buzzell of I^ort Benton was to have delivered the annual missionary address, but the condition of his health forbade. Rev. Joel Vigus filled the space by an interesting sermon from the text: "Upon this rock will I build my church." A large house attended these services. The Rev. Bishop C. II. Fowler of New York is presiding at this confer ence. Mrs. Fowler accompanies him. Among the notables attending the conference from a distance are Dr. H. K. Carroll of Philadelphia; Rev. Thos. VanScoy, D. I)., President of the Montana Wesleyan University; Rev. F. A. Higgin, A. M., and Rev. I. N. Smith of Helena. Besides these there are Rev. A.

I he politics of Cascade county is beginning to assume a tangible shape. There are many aspirants for office on the republican ticket and many persons who are being pushed forward by their friends. Among the latter class may be mentioned E. II. Clingati whose naine is being used by his many friends for state representative and P. B. Buchanan as a member of the board of county commissioners frotn this section. Each is an instance where the office seeks the man, as neither gentlemen is an aspirant for office but is willing to serve the taxpayers of Cascade county should the convetion choose them for the respective offices their friends de sire to see them fill. Mr. Clingan baf been for a numb er of years a citizen of this county, and nothing has escaped his watch ful eye that would benefit the coun ty, that he has not spent both time and money to secure. He is a rep resentative citizen of Cascade coun ty and if nominated to the office of state representative the people will see that he is elected. Mr. Buchanan is well known in Cascade county, having like Mr. Clingan large interests here, and would certainly be a good commiss ioner from this section. Ile has in vested his capital in the county and has always been ready and willing to further the interests of the people of Cascade county. Should he se cure the nomination one thing is sure; he would do his duty and those who cast their votes for hi in will never regret their action. Both gentlemen are too well know to comment upon and they need no introduction to the people of Cas cade county. This section of the county is entitled to recognition and the selection of Clingan and Bu chanan wiil materially strengthen the ticket. Frank Rush has more trouble than yon Can shake a stick at. Tuesday he started out to make an arrest and now he is sorry that he spoke. He went after a «oman but found that he was up against a buzz saw; it was such close resemblance to a real thing. The warrant of arrest accused her of dealing another old dame a few blows with a club. When Rush reached the scene of trouble he found that the person of his quest was in the house with the door locked, and was willing only to fiirt with the young officer on the rinky dink plan which says, "You may look, but mustn't toueli." It was another case of that old song, never sung at par lor entertainments, "Through the keyhole in the door." The officer broke the door, went in and placed the woman under ar rest. In breaking the door, the wo man, who was holding it from the in side, received a cut over the eye. Some uncharitable person said that Rush, being too courteous to raise his hand against a woman, had used an ax; but this he denies, and as the allegation is unsupported by affida vit, there appears no potent reason why the officer's version should not be credited. Rush says that while he was preaching an elaborate sermon upon the evil of fighting, and the dangers and dire consequences thereof, the woman produced a gun and proceed ed to do a cow boy act in rag time. When the limb of the law started to disarm her, she got a Lester start on him and dashed for the brush with Rush a good second. Fortune fav ored the officer, as her old gun was rusty and wouldn't go off; so Cook was deprived of the happiness of wearing his plug hat on the front end of the hearse. Rush got her gun, but she gave him the slip, and wan dered in the wilderness for several A Gooù Mau Heard from. Aboard the steamer Gaelic, be tween Manila and Hong Kong June 20, C. E.

Mac Rae who left Belt two weeks ago presumably for the countrv of petti coat government have returned al though they did not have the oppor tunity to put their feet upon that land wnere fish play such a promi nent part. They got as far as Fort Benton when they concluded that they would sooner take a chance where the man wears the pants than to tackle a governmhnt where this emblem of authority is worn by a member of the female persuasion. It is rumored that they were afraid to proceed into the old lady's do main for fear that they might be pnshed into service, so they turned back and went up the creek. Both gentlemen report a most enjoyable time. It will take several days to get the tan and freckles off their faces and to their young lady friends they are home nit, not yet.
