ORSCHEL & BRO. in did The Teller Itobbery An associated press telegram from Minneapolis, of the 9th, is as follows: The Tribune's Fargo special says that while on the Villard excursion the daughter of Secretary Teller had a trunk lost at Helena which was gaid to contain property worth $10,000. Alex McKenzie, of Bismarck, sheriff of Burleigh county, D. T., was em ployed to work up the case. To-day he had five men arrested—three at Jamestown (two named Adams anc one named McGraw) and two at Still water, Minn.—one a son of A. Staples, the millionaire lumberman. The first clew to the parties was obtained from a variety actress in Montana, who dis played a fine fan «and handkerchief, the latter of which bore Miss Teller's name. Our readers will readily recognize that this refers to the robbery com mitted at Livingston a month ago, though the intelligence of the arrests at Jamestown will be news to most «of them. The intimation of the James town arrests h.ad not been received by anyone in town up to last evening, but the report is doubtless correct never theless. Officers of the law and trusted employes of the Northern Pa cific along the whole line of the road uid in the Minnesota cities' lave been constantly on the watch for the appearance of some of these stolen goods, w hich were readily recognizable from being articles of European manufacture of the finest quality. This keen watcli ms had its effect, it would seem, in the arrest of the variety theatre peo ple in Jamestown. Their names will be figured out by, local readers as Andy Adams and his woman (probably it was she who displayed tin fan and îandkerchief.) and Jim McGraw. They eft Livingston very shortly after the commission of the theft, and their guilt as accessories or principals to the crime would probably date from be fore their departure from this town The men arrested in St. Paul we have already spoken of. They are Dave Staples, the scapegrace son of Stil water's millionaire lumber man Isaac Staples, and a man named Shannon who figured in this country as a sort of "tin.horn" gambler. At the time Staples left here and some time before a ticket paid for by his father in St Faul, was awaiting him at the depot That in his chronic state of being dead-br»ke and knowing the ticket was here, he made the trip to Stillwater without iti looked suspicious, and de tectives took him under surveillance in Minnesota. He and his partner Shannon, w T ere caught disposing of the goods and are now under arrest. A requisition for their transfer to Moi* tana will be made out by Gov ernor Crosby to-day and with officers will probably leave on Saturday for St. Paul to bring the prisoners here for trial. It should be a source of gratification to every orderly citizen of Livingston to know that there is a prospect of punishment being meted out to the peiqietrators of this daring crime. Whatever reputa tion Livingston may have, it is a fact that offences of every nature have met with prompt punishment in this town, and it would be a matter for grave regret if this instance proved an exception. Our local railroad men na turally feel intensely pleased at the prospect of having what was at first a dark mystery fully unravelled and themselves exonerated from any blame that might possibly, though wrongly, be imputed to them for negligence that gave an opportunity for the theft. Death bv Poison. A very sad case of death from the ignorant use of a powerful poison oc curred yesterday afternoon, the victim being Mrs. Edward Towers. The cir cumstances were as follows: Mrs. Towers was in the constant habit of using morphine and had become so confirmed in its use that she could not long be without it. Her husband is in the habit of using strychnine as a nerve' tonic and kept a supply of the drug in the house. On Wednesday evening Mrs. Towers needed morphine and expected her husband to come home with some about 7 o'clock. * He did not come until 10 o'clock, and in the meantime she felt the need of hef accustomed dose so strong]v that she the the not is name as soma a concluded to try a dose of the medi. cifte her husband was in the habit of using, supposing it would have the same effect upon her. Ignorant of its terrible power, Mrs. Towers took a dose sufficient to kill any one, where the system was unaccustomed by grad ual usage to its effects. In a very short time the poison made itself felt, throwing her into the spasms or rigors that mark the effect of strychnine. Drs. Weirick and Grant were called, but too late; antidotes were adminis tered, but the poison had been assimi lated and was beyond their reach. She sank gradually until late yesterday af ternoon, when death claimed her. The New Park Road. The Carbon County Journal has the following to say regarding the propos ed railway through Wyoming to the Park: Recently reference was made to the fact that a party of engineers had come from Denver for the purpose of survey - ing a road to the Yellowstone. Ev erything stated regarding the road was correct. Beginning at the soda lakes near Rawlins, the syndicate that controls the lakes and of which Sec retary E. S. N. Morgan is a member, will extend the road to Fort Washakie, by the most direct route practicable and thence on to the Yellowstone. Messrs. Wallace and Boutwell have ten civil engineers now at work on the line and it has been surveyed far enough to secure the right of way. Unlimited capital is at the command of the company, and there is no doubt that the road will be pushed on to com pletion. Oregon Pion eers in Danger. The Oregon papers are very solicit ons about the safety of the aged pion eers who are now on their way to New York. They have occupied a vast amount of space with warnings ad dressed to these fathers of the state i;o look out for knaves «and sharpers in the eastern haunts of crime. They cite the case of a citizen of Portland who was taken in by New Y'ork bunko steerers to the tune of over $2,000. One of the Portland papers comes out with the following versified warning: TARTAR PIONEERS. Look here, boys ! don't come no games On gray-haired folks like me ; « I blazed theftrail to Oregon With these old men you see. P'r'aps we ain't got eastern styles, And may look queer to you, But don't poke fun at brave old men— They're growin' awful few. We come to see our dear old homes Once more before we die, An' won't be gouged a single cent By fellows you call "fly.'' Ain't up to snuff! Well, that may be; But don't you have a fear, The bunko crop ain't worse'n "scrub" To an Oregon pioneer. A Sjteed of Boats. . There is something beyond calcula tion in the speed of steamers, according to one of John Roach's experts. Two boats may be built simultaneously from the same model, with every effort to make them precise duplicates as to slmpe and machinery, and yet one will prove faster than the other. Why this is so no man can tell. The Mary Pow ell has for fifteen years been the swift est on the Hudson river. During all that time she never has been beaten. Time and again an exact counterpart has been built, with everything copied as nearly as tlio best mechanics "and facilities could do it, but none of these has turned out as good as the original. As the reputation of unrivalled speedi ness is a valuable adv« r tison eat for a passenger boat, you can see the object in trying to build a second Mary Pow ell. Experience has b- en the same with yachtsmen. They order copies of the swiftest craft, or Joinl.r o the s ip >osed good points of several, and nine times out of ten are disappointed in the result. The Flathead Indians Net Fiatheaded. About seventy miles from the north ern boundary of the United States, in the Territo y of Montana, between the western slope of the Rockies, and the more westerly chain of mountains mown as the Cœur d'Alene, and, as you travel further south, as the Bitter Root, lies the reservation which has been assigned to the tribe of Indians called the Flatheads ; and probably no tribe have adapted themselves more to the maimers of cmlizf'tion at the ex pense of their former customs and fcaints than these. WIiv t ey iir« called Flat-heads no one in their part of the country f earns to know. They do not flatten their children's heads, nor is there any trace or tradit on among them of such a custom having l>eeu practiced formerly; and,as their lndian name is Sclish, it is probable that the name of Flathead was given to them, as often happeiis in this countrv, through the unaccountable freak of soma traveler.— Acte York Sun.
