TOURISTS CARRIED TO ANY PLACE. The Cheapest and Best Equipped Lirerij in Town. f. E. SJVYDLB, Prop. Sale *• si MDNTÂNA NHWS. The Clark's Fork river is higher than at any time last year. Six prisoners dug out of the Helena jail on Friday night last. E. C. 'Culver, the saloonîsîfc, hits moved from Stillwater to Billings. Ten ponies were recently stolen from the Crow reservation near Fort Cus ter. Miss Clara Shuart of Canyon Creek, was thrown from her horse and broke her arm. Frank Ward and John Harrison, horse-thieves, have been arrested at Dillon. Robert Bailey, a Beaverhead county sheep herder suicided by serving the main artery in his right arm. The Beaverhead county jail is so full of prisoners that an injunction will soon have to be placed on com mitting magistrates. Bessie Melville, formerly a member of the demi monde of Billings, is re ported to have committed suicide in Belknap by taking poison. Robert McKee of tire firm of McKee Bros, of Billings, and another gentle man have taken possession of the Bel knap and Eagle trail and established a toll-gate at McKee's place near the summit. On Saturday a sudden cloud-burst in the mountains north of Helena de luged the town with a flood of water. The damage was confined to goods in flooded cellers and will amount to per haps SI,000, The Yellowstone and Canyon Creek Ditch Co. is the name of a new cor poration. Its projectors are residents of Clark's Fork Bottom and their ob ject is to construct an irrigating canal about 20 miles long through that bot tom. California is suffering great depreda tions from the gray cut-worm, and Utah fruit trees are being devastated by millions of caterpillars. Cut worms are do ; ng immense damage in Deer Lodge valley. Nothing like their ravages was ever before known in that vicinity. People having business with the U. S. land offices are informed that per sonal checks are not received in pay ment of entry fees. Parties living at a distance from land offices are requir ed to remit by bank exchange, curren cy or postal notes, otherwise their fil ings will be returned for non-payment of fees. Wild and Untamed. John J. Dempsey got on a tear hist night. He has a "solid woman" nam ed Lou Fraser. He met lier on Main street in the evening and proceeded to celebrate his power over her by strik e ing her a terrific blow on tbe head with a rock, infecting a terrible gash. After that he went down to Kate McDolald's maison" de joie, broke up the furniture and raised a general rumpus. This morning he was arrested and put in jail hut in about five minutes he had effected his escape by breaking through a window. He was rounded up a second time, however, and as we go to press is undergoing examinations on both complaints before Judge Tower. lie has just been released from jail in Miles City and it is not improbable that he will try another term behind the bars. .Stay Away. A letter received by A. L. Love of the Bank of Livingston from R. A. Chisholm, who is now at Murrayville. in the Coeur d'Alenes, says: '*1 shall return to Livingston soon, very likely. They are taking lots of dust out of the mines but it is hard to get hold of. I would advise everybody to stay away from here for this year at least and perhaps for all time." Petit Larceny. A ripple of excitement spread around the dining room of the Liv ingston hotel when John II. Snowden, the colored waiter, was in the midst of his duties in conveying supper to hungry guests, was siezed by four of the bo nders and kept ii> custody till deputy-sheriff Metcalf arrived and placed hint in durance vile. John's offense was about as follows:, A week ago, more or less, he broke open a trunk belonging to a boarder named Foley, and took therefrom two gold rings of considerable value. When the loss was discovered nothing was said in hope that the thief would give himself away. The ruse was successful. Yesterday it was discov ered that he had given one of the rings t'o Mollie Roy, a young woman of thoroughbred African blood on whom the gay waiter was sweet. The other ring lie had "soaked" with Wil liam Morris for $2. This morning he was taken before Judge E. M. Tower and entered a plea of guilty to the charge. He was fined 850 and sen tenced to jail 30 days, and beside stands committed in default of pay ment of the fine. Board of Trade. The Livingston board of trade met on Saturday evening in special session. The first business considered was the matter of town incorporation now pending before the district court. From information imparted to the board by G. J. Douglas,it appears that the chief error in the preliminary ar rangements under the statutes, as held by Judge Coburn, is that no applica tion was made for incorporation; that a notice was duly published that ap plication for an incorporating order would be made to the court hut that such application was not actually made in compliance with the law. The committee having the matter in charge was directed by the board to prepare and have presented a formal application, though it would appear from what the court is said to have held on this point that the application should have been filed witli the clerk of court immediately after the pub lished notice, and that it is now too late to apply. In the hope that the ruling of the court will not be held so strictly, the application will now be presented. The question of the short road or cut-off from Livingston to Shields river was brought up. The com mittee who looked over the proposed route reported that it would save at least six miles of travel and might be put in condition for freighting at an expense of 8100. Messrs. Love, Nor ton, Miles, Donovan and Goughnour were a ppointed a committee to take the matter in charge. Other business of no public interest followed and the board adjourned. A Train Wrecked. A serious though happily not fatal accident occurred yesterday morning on the Northern Pacific about eight miles west of Gallatin City. The Gal latin river is very high and at the point where the accident occurred was running outside its usual banks and had filled an old channel or dry bed, thus making a second river. Along one side of this new stream run? the railway witii its roadbed graded along the foot of a high bank. The wash of the swift water had presumably weakened the track so that it would not bear its accustomed weight. Yes terday morning when the east-bound freight train came along, running at the rate of about six miles an hour, without any w'arning the track broke and the engine and ten cars went into the river. The locomotive fell on its side in water of sufficient depth to cover all but the drive wheels. The cars piled one t#i top of another in the must terrible wreck. Two or three of them were absolutely broken into splinters. By merciful fortune no lives were lost. Engineer George Ford received an injury to his shoul der which is not understood to be se rious; a tramp who w r as in one of ti e cars had Ills leg broken, and a brake man was pitched with~the wreck into the water but managed to save him self unhurt. The loss of property will be considerable. A carload of salmon will be a complete loss; two or three carloads of bullion were in the wreck but that freight is not perish able and will !>e recovered. The track was repaired yesterday with sufficient promptitude to allow the passenger tram to reach Livingston only three hours Lite.
