TOURISTS CARRIED TO ANY PJ^ACE. The Cheapest and Best Equipped Livery in Town. Y. E. SNYDER, P-op. THE LATEST NEWS. o Cbas. E. Hinckley, canned goods deal er of New York, has mysteriously disap peared. Secretary Teller has appointed W. V. Coffin, of Oregon, Superintendent of the Indian Industrial School at Forest Grove, Oregon. The striking stove moulders of Pitts burg, who have been out nine months, have returned to work at a reduction of 15 per cent in wages. Sixteen workmen lived in a shanty built on piles in Lake Michigan off from Chicago. A storm blew away their shanty and left them clinging to the piles, and 10 of them were drowned before they could be rescued. The safes of Noble & Sons and Tom linson & Son, at Perry, N. Y., were blown open by burglars and robbed of $21,000 of Arkansas State bonds, besides a large amount of other securities and money. There is no clue. Ibe option of the celebrated Northern Pacific syndicate to take $3,000,000 of second mortgage bonds, in addition to the $15,000,000 already taken, has expired. The syndicate wished to extend the time, but the directors would not and the com pany keeps the bonds. At a meeting of the straight-out repub lican committee at Richmond, Virginia, three members of the committee resign ed, and resolutions were adopted to with draw the whole electoral ticket from the field. Of 17 members present only 1 dissented. So much for Blaine in Vir ginia. David Healey, chief clerk of the bureau of labor statistics, has been discharged by C. F. Peck, head of the bureau. The as signed cause for the discharge is that Healey charged $10 worth of private tel egraph messages to the department, but Healey's friends say he is discharged be cause he presided at a Butler meeting. General John B. Murray, while receiv ing a banner for the Plumed Knights at Seneca Falls, N. Y., was stricken with ap oplexy and died. General Murray was an enthusiastic grand army man, and one of the originators of Decoration Day. He led the first procession that marched to martial music to strew' flowers upon the graves of soldiers. Richard Clark, of Caledonia, Canada, an employe of Forepaugh's circus, while opening the ventilation m a cage at Water bury, Conn., had his hand seized by a tiger. While trying to release himself he was seized by two tigers and dragged in side the cage. The animals were finally beaten off with iron bars. His arms and legs had been crushed and mutilated. Advices from the Nile state that after the stranding of the steamer on which w r ere Col. Stewart and his men, three na tives came on board and stated to Stewart that he was only a short distance from Mora wee, and which they could easily reach on foot, and where they could obtain assistance to float the steamer; they offer ed to guide them there. Colonel Stew'art and tw o companions started for the village and when they had traveled out of sight of the steamer a number of men sprang from an ambush and murdered the party. The rebels afterwards attacked the steam er, killing all ou hoard except four. Through to Chicago. The last*fiftuen miles of the North ern Pacific road, between Superior City and Ashland, Wis., is graded and ready for the rails, which will be laid next week. The completion of this line will connect the Northern Pac ific with the Wisconsin Central and give the former a direct route to Chicago. Northwestern Furs. St. Paul Day: A. S. YViel, a New York fur agent, well known in the west, arrived in St. Paul yesterday af ternoon qver the Northern Pacific. Speaking upon the robe outlook for the future, he was inclined to adihit that the fur harvest was about ended. The buffalos are on the eve of final extinc tion. They have been hunted down to their last resort south of the border of the northwest territories until now there are but a few scattering bands left north of the Yellowstone. The have given place to the domestic cat tle, little less wild, perhaps, but sus ceptible of being rounded up for brand ing and for the market. The wide ranges north of the Yellowstone are now being rapidly taken up by the ranchmen and the stockgrowers. The effect upon the fur market of the de pletion of the source of an erstwhile bountiful supply could but have the effect of appreciating the value of dressed fur product to the consumer. With the flight of the roving bison in wild dismay from the alert hunter and the track of the snorting locomotive, go other fur producing animals, and all fur values will follow in the appre ciation of buffalo robes in the markets. This is a matter of some moment to the people of the northwest, whose comfort is administered to in a large measure in the lingering winter by robes and furs. About Rufus* Hatch. A correspondent of The Day, St. Paul, publishes what it purports to be an interview w r ith a prominent New Yorker, who is a personal and business friend of Rufus Hatch. The interview relates principally to Ru fus Hatch, and says that he lost $750, 000 in the Northern Pacific drop last summer, and that loss es in other schemes have completely stranded him. The same New Yorker says that Henry Villard saved two million out of the wreck of his for tunes. Referring to the National Park Improvement company, he says: "The company comprises Rufus Hatch of New York; John Douglass, a special United States treasury agent of St. Paul; his son, Henry F. Doug lass, a post trader at Standing Rock, Dakota, Sitting Bull's agency; State Senator Gilfillan. of Minneapolis; Car roll T. Hobart, of Minneapolis, and George Ely, a friend of Hobart's, of Lyme, Conn. Rufus Hatch put $126, 000 in the company, and the remain ing partners named, with the excep tion of young Douglas, invested $1,000 apiece. Henry F. Dougins paid in $1,000 at the outset and later on he guaranteed a debt of $1.260, at a time when he believed the affairs and finances ot the company to be in a flourishing condition. And when the bottom fell out of the scheme, he came to the front and paid the amount he had ^guaranteed, like a gentleman. Last April Douglas and Hobart offered Hatch, through me, $85,000 for his Yellowstone interest. He regarded this offer as an attempt to rob him cut of $41.000, and so he would not trade; and there the matter rests. Rufus Hatch has been a cat's paw for a num ber of western men and speculators, nothing more. Northern Pacific rob bed him shamefully, and—well he was mistreated by almost a very man west of New' York with whom he had any business connections.*' y Railway Assessments. Miles City Journal: The board of equalization yesterday heard legal ar gument in the case of the Northern Pacific railroad company made by council seeking a reduction in the rate of taxation assessed against that corporation in Custer county. At first, a motion was made, but not en tertained, to the effect that the entire assessment he stricken from the roll. Subsequently, the assessment of SL UG per mile was reduced to $875. There are 324 miles ir the county sub ject to taxation which runs largely against the rolling stock of the com pany. _ - Bad Beef. The St. Paul people are very much exercised over the diseased meat ques tion. They say that all the Montana beef sold in St. Paul is diseased. The theory of the health officers is that cattle become sick on the Jong road from Montana to Chicago and when they reach St. Paul, to save them from dying and becoming a total loss, they are dumped off, killed and the inflam ed, fevered meat placed on the St. Paul market. They say Montana mutton sold there is in much the same condition for identical reasons. The authorities will take active measures to prevent the sale of su ah meat.
