The Cheapest and Best Equipped Livery in Town. V. E. SNYDER, Prop. THE LATEST NEWS. At Butler, Pa., Theodore Dwyer was shot and killed in his own house by Jas. Peterson. Peterson claims the killing was in self-defense. A desperate conflict took place yester day at Rawndice, in the Province of Sara tor, between German and Russian pea ants attending the annual fair, in which eleven persons were killed, including one gensdarme, and*thirty wounded. The annual convention of the National Council of the Order of United American Mechanics opened at Philadelphia on Wednesday. The membership of the order numbers 19,337, a gain since last year of 1,533. The treasury showed the receipts of the year to be $134,254; dis bursements in benefit and relief money $61,268; balance in treasury and vatious subordinate councils, $389,234. New York telegram: At the office of the Universal Inter-Ocean Panama Canal company, Broadway, a Tribune reporter was informed by the secretary that pro posais for 500 portable houses for laborers will be opened to-day. Several thousand laborers, mostly negroes, are employed. They perform work more satisfactorily in that climate than white men. Subscrip tious to a new loan of 387,387 shares of 500 francs each, to be issued by the com pany, close next Thursday. Work on the canal is reported progressing satisfactorily. Making a Kick. A dispatch to the* New York Herald from Ottawa,- Canada, says The atten tion of the Dominion government has been called to the manner in which the chief of the South Piegan Indians in Montana extorts money from the Cana dian ranchmen for permitting them to drive their cattle, purchased in Montana, across their reservation. Canadian ranch men purchase large herds of cattle in Montana, which are driven into the Cana dian Northwest about eighty miles west of Fort McLeod. On every head of cat tle, the Indians demand a payment of ten cents, and if the money is not immediate ly handed over, the cattle are lassoed and then shot. It is thought that their desti tution has driven them to such a course. Richelieu. A good house greeted the George C. Miln Dramatic company at the Skat ing Rink last evening. The play was Richelieu—Lord Lytton's grandest work. The great attraction of the company is George C. Miln, the man who but two or three years ago was one of the greatest preachers of Amer ica, and who, then but a young man, promised to be one of the most fa mous divines of the age. He left the pulpit and adopted the profession of an actor, and ap peared first as a star. That his natural talent, polished general education and careful study in his present profession entitle him to very high rank in the theatrical world none who heard him last evening will deny. His concep tion of the character of the great Car dinal and his manner of rendering it were beyond criticism. How well the audience appreciated it was testified by breathless interest alternating with rounds of applause. The part taken by Miss Adele Payn, the leading lady, did not affrrd a chance of con tinued display of dramatic art, but in one powerful episode she showed her capabilities as an actress. Mr. Wil liam Lloyd as De Mauprat was a powerful support; he is an actor of merit far above the average of those who play second parts. The gentleman who took the pari of the chief con spirator—the villian of the play— was recognized by many In the audience as Mr. J. P. Rutledge, for some months last year a resident of Livingston, where he successlully led a play at the local theatre. It was the universal opinion that his character was well taken last evening; he is one of the strong factors of Mr. Miln 's strong company. This evening Macbeth will be pro duced. It will give an opportunity for powerful acting by both Mr. Miln and Miss Payn, who is said to be at her best in Lady Macbeth. We shall be surprised if the, audience is not larger this evening than it was even last night. The Miln company is sneb a theatrical feast as lias never been spread at Livingston before, and it may be long before such a star and such a company will again make this tour. Democratic Sentiments. The following resolutions were adopted by the democratic convention of Montana, held at Deer Lodge, Sept. 25. 1884: Resolved, That the democracy of Montana in convention assembled hereby declare our firm adhesion and devotjon to the principles and doctrines of the democratic party as expressed in the platform adopted by the Na tional democratic convention held at Chicago on the 8tii of July, 1884. and commend to the democracy of the country the nomination of said con vention, Grover Cleveland, of New York, for president, and Thomas A. Hendricks, of Indiana, for v'ce-presi pent of the United States, as worthy of the enthusiastic support of all democrats and all other citizens who believe in an honest and economical administration of the affairs of the national government. Resolved, That the Democrats of Montana express their approbation of the faithful, zealous and useful ser vices of Hon. Martin Maginnis, who has for more than a decade ably rep resented Montana in the congress of the United States. Resolved, That it is the sense of this territorial democratic convention that each delegate accredited to this con vention be allowed to vote regardless of the so-called "unit rule." Resolved, That the democracy of Montana earnestly urge upon the voters of the territory, nrespective of party, the necessity of the admission of Montana as a state of the Union at the earliest possible date. Resolved, That we earnestly urge upon congress the necessity of such legislation as will require the North ern Pacific railroad company to recog nize the claims of all actual settlers under any of the land laws of the United Stales made within the limits of its land grant prior to the actual, definite and final location of its road; 2d. requiring said company to sell its lands to actual settlers at prices in no case exceeding $2.60 per acre; 3d. re quiring it to uiake returns oi' its land ed and other property for fair and equitable taxation. Resolved, That the action of the na tional democratic col* vention in grant ing to delegates from the territories all the privileges granted to and exer cised by the delegates from the states, is a j üst recognition of the cardinal rights of the people of the territories long deferred; and the declaration that, in the selection of officers for the territories appointments shall be made from the bona fide residents of the territorrirs is a most emphatic recognition of the right of the people of the territories to self government, and a popular repudiation of that per nicious system of colonial government so long forced upon a free and suffer- * ing people. Resolved, That wu recognize labor as the source of wealth and prosperity and the wages of workingmen should be properly protected by law. Railroad Arrangements. A dispatch from Chicago on the 23rd, says: The Transcontinental Railway association met to-day. The principal subject of discussion was the apportionment of territory among the various lines. The Northern Pacific was conceded all territory north of Portland, Oregon, but whether the road will be admitted as a competitor in the California business proper was not decided. Precincts of the County. The county commissioners have es tablished new voting precincts at Chico, Three Forks, Shield's river (Myers' upper ranch), Monforton's and Upper Boulder. Elk Grove has been changed to Salesville, Muir to Timber line, Yellowstone No. 2 to Livingston, Park to Gardiner and Puett- to Mel ville. Bozeman Is divided into two precincts.
