Judge Coburn adjourned court over Saturday at Glendive out of respect for Judge Miller who died the evening previous. E. A. Henderson, railway postal clerk, was examined at Helena Thurs day. In Montana distribution he stood 100 per cent., in .Washington territory 99>£, and in Idaho 99)£ per cent. He will be examined in Oregon distribution next week. Mr. George Richards, of Choteau, was in town Saturday. He says that the horses captured from the Crows recently in the lower country, con cerning which a notice appeared in the River Press of recent date, be longed to him and James W. Arm strong. He will take steps for their recovery at once.- Sun. •K The assessment of Deer Lodge county will reach about$4,000,000 this year. But for the fact that horses have fallen off in value from 15 to 20 per cent., that 10 percent of the cat tle and 15 to 20 per cent of the sheep as listed last year have been driven out of the county, the assessment would have made a much larger show ing. It is also to be remembered that this assessment does not include the Northern Pacific property. Beaten by the Crow«. F. M. Bourn, a Tongue river ranch man lost a number of horses and traced them to the Crow agency where they had been taken by the Indian thieves. He and Mr. J. C. Holt went after them. He discovered two of the stolen animals in the possession of the Indians and readily obtained their return. A considerable bunch of his horses was then discovered in the Crow herd by Mr. Bourn, and he sent Mr. Holt to the agent to obtain help to recover them while he watch ed the horses. The agent complained that he had not time to look after the matter, and Holt waited. Meantime the Indians began running 'off the horses that Brown was watching, and he attempted to prevent them. What followed Mr. Brown thus relates to the Billings Post: A large body of Crow Indians, numbering not less than five hundred, who happened to be mounted at the time, started after me, quirting my horse and myself as many of them as could get in reach and as fast as they could get their licks in, until my horse was run down and I was badly used up. Occasionally one would run lip against me with the muzzle of a gun or come at me with a butcher knife, not using either weap on, but confining themselves to quirts, clubs and such like. When they rounded me up and one Indian caught my horse by the bridle, I proposed to go to Armstrong (the agent) to which they consented, some of them riding on each side of me and every moment one would strike the horse on the hack, another pound him on the head while another would strike me oyer the head as we rode along, the main body of them following up behind until we reached the agency, a distance of about one mile, after which I was al lowed to go, the agent telling me to return some other time when he was not so busy and he would attend to my business. Captured Horse Thieves. Miles City Record: The authorities of Custer county bad been in posses sion of knowledge of the presence this side of the Missouri river of a band of horse thieves, supposed to be the notorious Axleby's gang, and a party of deputies among whom were Frank and Jack Conley, Louis King, Doc Zahl. Jack Hawkins and three or four others were sent out to arrest them. The thieves were learned to have their headquarters at Scott's ranch on the Lower Yellowstone about forty miles this side of Fort Buford. Proceeding cautiously in that direction the officers, about two miles this side of Scotts, came upon two men who endeavored, to avoid them. A bloodless skirmish ensued in which several pistol shots were fired bol no I a body was injured. The men were caught and turned out to be "Kid" Allen of Glendive and Joseph Mc Laughlin, two members of the gang. Proceeding to Scott's, two others were captured, Jim Hayden, alias "Red Jim," and a man named Anderson. Forty stolen horses were also recover ed at the robbers' lair. The prisoners were brought to Miles City where they were lodged in the county jail on Saturday night. An attempt was made in Glendive, we understand, to interfere with the officers coming through with their prisoners, but they are wholly silent on the subject them selves. Fire at Walluia. Another Northern Pacific town has been scourged, by fire. Yesterday morning a fire broke out at Waliula Junction and destroyed seven buildings and other property to the total value of $50.000. Theodore Ptiefer, a bar keeper, was burned to death. Joseph Cook's Lecture. Hamilton (N. Y.) Paper: At no time since the commencement of the lecture course has so large an audience greeted a speaker as last Thursday evening. Every available place was iccnpied. The "Seveu Wonders of the World," was handled in a master ly and powerful manner by this king of the platform. His experience of travel, at home and abroad, has given him a wide range of thought and knowledge. His style of delivery is peculiarly striking, as a deal of the time he stands before you with eyes nearly closed, and seems to dream his expressions, and suddenly, as if in spired by magic, he draws himself up tö his fullest height, and, striking his broad breast with half clenched fists, bursts forth with startling eloquence, while his massive head tosses back and each particular hair seems to stand on end as he delivers a torrent of exciting sentences. Every one was pleased with the lecture, and especially so was the ministerial part of the audience. The Keystone Commercial says: "Beer, beer," panted a perspiriug farmer, as he walked up to the bar in 'the Office' saloon at LaMoure. He hastily downed the draught and slyly fishing around in his pants pocket he produced a gopher's tail and laid it on the mahogany counter. The bar tender brushed the caudal appendage in his cash box, with the grace of a Ches terfield, and the reinvigorated man walked out. Gopher's tails are full legal tender in LaMoure county for all debts, public and private. Considerable indignation and excitement have been caused in* Jewish circles in Philadelphia by the action of Hays, Fieid & Co, wholesale shoe dealers, Market street, who have refused to sell to houses whose members are Hebrews. The matter has come to light through the publicity given to a letter written by the firm to a dealer of Memphis, named Simon, in which they said : "Youi name would indicate that you a r e a Hebrew. If so, we are not sel ling to that trade, and would have to de cline your order." A member of the firm when seen, admitted : "We are refusing the Hebrew trade ; we have discovered that we lose more than we make in it." The New York Tribune says: The Canadian Pacific Railway Company has issued a pamphlet relating to the work re maining to be done to complete the line. W. C. VanHorn, vice-president, recently, returned from a trip of inspection of the Company's route, declares the mountain section can be completed within a year at a cost of $4,000,000, under the estimate made last winter. The eastern section will be completed in the same time. By next September a through line from Mon treal to the Pacific will be established. His trip removed all doubts from Van Horn's mind as to the value of the moun tain section. He says more good agricul tural land, coal and timber lies between Winnepeg and the Pacific coast, than on all the Pacific railways combined. Every pavt of the line from Montreal to the pa cific coast will pay. The mountain work will cost far less per mile than that of the Union and Central Pacific roads. The country 1 through which the road passes is rapidly being settled by farmers.
