V.E. SJVYDEB, Prop. THE LATEST NEWS. The French have again begun operations against China. Several sharp engage ments have been held. A demonstration held in Wheeling, W. Va., in honor of the presence of Mr. Hen dricks, was the largest held in the state thus far in the campaign. The Royal Palace at Copenhagen, Den mark, and several adjacent buildings of national interest were burned on Friday night. The loss reaches millions in prop erty destroyed, beside state documents and woiks of great intrinsic value. James Graves, a member of a firm of New York jewelers and his wife arrived m New York on Saturday from Europe and were searched at the custom house. Concealed in their clothes were found $20,000 worth of unset diamonds. It is stated that the United States in the commercial negotiations with Spain offer ed largely reduced duties on sugar and raw tobacco imported from Cuba m return for reduced Cuban duties on American cereals. The question of tariffs is still undecided. Intelligence has iust been received of a terribly disastrous hurricane in Iceland on the llth pf September. Accounts thus far received show nineteen trading vessels and sixty fishing boats lost and thirty-two vessels disabled.' The most appalling fea ture of the hurricahe was the loss of life. The exact number oUthose who perished has not yet been ascertained, but is knowu to be very great. In Nance county, Nebraska, Mr. and Mrs. Percival, Hugh Mair and George Furnival have been found murdered. It is thought that the crimes were commit ted by H. G. Baird, who was living with the Percivals. The theory is that Baird criminally assaulted Mrs. Fercival and then killed her; that the others may have have discevered Baird's crime and were killed that they might tell no tales. Baird has disappeared. Judge Miller. Judge Miller's death at Glendive whs caused by an overdose of some nar cotic. probably morphine. He was 56 years of age. He was a California Forty-niner, studied law atYrekain that state and became judge of Sisky ou county. In 1862 he went to Idaho City, Idaho, remained there several years, thence moved to Salt Lake City, thence to Deadwood and thence to Yellowstone valley. He leaves a wife and four chil Iren. Death of Father Ravalli. Rev. Anthony Ravalli, priest and physician of the society of Jesus, died at St. Mary's Mission, Missoula county, October 2nd, at the of 72 years. He was especially educated lor missionary work among the Rocky Mountain Indians,and came from Italy around Cape Horn to this field of labor in 1844. Ever since then he has lived among the Indians, going among the tribes in every direction, doing good everywhere as a doctor ot souls and bodies until his name is be loved by all the tribes of the north western mountains. The sacrifices of hiB life, the labor he has put forth, the privations he has endured, and the good he has accomplished without worldly recompense have been such as are found in the histories of few men except the priests who have made mis sionary labor among the Indians their chosen work. Stock by Canadian Pacific. The Canadian Pacific people are making strong bids for the cattle ship ments from northern Montana and are in a degree successful. The shipments are made at Maple Creek, and stock trains are run from there to Winni peg. a distance of 600 miles, in 24 hours. The expense of the inspec tion required by the Canadian govern ment is borne by the company, and all practical inducements held out to draw stock shipments from Montana. Odd Fellow Statistics. The Independent Order of Odd Fel lows which has been organized but 65 years, bas now a membership of 1,318, 225; have aided 1,066.950 sick brothers by weekly benefits and contributions; 144.809 widowed families have been assisted, and a total of $36,742,136.75 has been expended for such relief. The total receipts of revenue of sub ordinate ledges amounting to $98,227,« 589.60. The Order extends to every state and territory of the Union and to many foreign countries. Gone to Assist the Campaign. Our Governor Crosby was on board yesterday's Atlantic express and, as is his energetic custom, he spent the time the train stopped at Livingston in talking with friends on personal or official topics. In an inner recess of his pocketbook, packed as a pre cious treasure next a roll of hank bills, was a telegram which read thus: Washington, Oct. 4. Gov. John Schuyler Crosby, Hel ena: Would like you to come east im mediately to speak and otherwise assist in the campaign. S. B. Elkins. Stephen B. Elkins, it should be re membered, is James G. Blaine's chief executive and grand sachem. He sits in his wigwam and while the battle rages around him he says unto one re publican politician or office-holder come and he cometh, to another go and he goeth, and to another ante up and he antieth. "Yes," said the Gov ernor, "I must go on to Washington as fast as possible and from there I do net know exactly where I will go to work, but' I will not get back until after the election." He was evidently highly gratified at this recognition of his importance hy the great Stephen, though it may have been the gratitude described by soriie philosopher as *'a lively expectation of future favors.'* But it will doubtless he a great satis faction to Montanians to know that their governor is of such weight and influence in the nation that he has been called from his home in the mountains to go to and fro among the doubtful states of the dim and distant east to strike valiant blows for his po litical masters. Appointments for Toole. A meeting of the territorial demo cratic committee was held in Butte on Saturday. W. E. Cullen was made chairman» R. S. Kelly treasurer and H. S. Howell secretary. Arrange ments were made for Hon. Joseph K. Toole to speak at all important towns in the territory, beginning at Sun River, Oct. 7th. Appointments for the Yellowstone valley are as follows: Glendive, 23rd; Miles City, 24th; Billings, 25th; and Livingston, 27th; he will be in Bozeman on the 28th. Meeting will open at 7:30 p. in. of the days named, and county committees are directed to make all further ar rangements. —- m — County Institute. Bozeman, M. T., Oct. 4.1884.—Pur suant to call the teachers of Gallatin county met in the public school build ing of Bozeman, Thursday, Oct. 2nd, to participate in the annual teachers' institute. Notwithstanding the »» clemency of the weather thirty-seven teachers were enrolled during the ses sion. Much interest was manifested in the noble work for which they had assembled. The institute was organ ized by electing Dr. Monroe (county superintendent) chaiitnan and J. L. Jensen secretary. Committees on re ception, introduction and programme were appointed. Prof. McCombs, of the Bozeman school, delivered the opening address, "Mutual Benefit of Institutes." Hon. C. Hedges, terri torial superintendent, was present Friday and Saturday, during which time he rendered valu»! le service to the institute in his usual spirited and instructive manner. Adjourned Sat. urday Oct. 4th, 1884. L. Wash in ton special: All the details of a postal treaty with Mexico have been prac tically agreed upon. One of the first acts of the new Postmaster General will be to sign the document. The leading features of the treaty, so far as they affect corres pondence from the United States to Mexico,, are the adoption of our domestic rates of postage with compulsory prepayment. The treaty goes into operation as soon as signed by the Postmaster General and rati fied by the Mexican Senate. There is no doubt of its ratification.
