A Large Number of South-rn Cattle will Seek Buyers in Montana. Railroad Train in Dakota Held up by a Prairie Fire. .t NEW ,TI IT .Ill. The f hipping of uIrthern (alile ll, ou t.a.i for a Market From \Mr. A. W. .ra,:ey, of Stacey Bros.., Pumpkin cre-k, who has just retu:r.nd from a several mionths' virit to! routhrn lbreeding grotulld, we learn that during this earson a number of ,outhern breeders who have an excess of stuer cattle for which they have been unable to find purchasers, will ship large herds of their cattle to northern Wyoming and southeastern Montana, with a view to making open sales to resident stock men in lots to suit purchasers. This departure from the accustomed plan of northern buy era going south and there making their purchases, has been brought asout by the unsatisfactory state of the southern cattle market this year, prices ruling so high as to prevent many buyers from making deals, the result being that thoug% desirous of pur chasing at a certai, price, they have been forced to come home without placing their orders. The buyers having left the market, and there be ins as we bhav said, a large surplus of two, three and even four-year-old steer cattle in the hbands of southern dealers, the market is forced to come to the buyers. Mr. Stacey I. of the opinion that if no further sales are made there will be from 30,I0WW to 5,, 0(9, need of young steer cattle landed at Wendover from the 1st to the 15th of July. which will be offered to Wyo ming and Montana purchasers in lots to suit the buyers. The herds that he has positive knowledge of are as foi lows: G. W. Littlefield, Austin, Texas, 7,tXI) head In two herds, all twom and threes; will be shipped from Clay ton, N. M., May 15 and 25, by rail to Wendover. Jno. Gamble, Mason City, Texas, 10,000 head twos, will be shipped about same time and to same point. Dan Taylor, Fort Sumner, N. M., 6,000 to 1,000 head twos and threes; will be shipped as above. Sims A Slaughter, Tom Green oounty, Tex., 6,000 head two and threes; will be shipped from Amorilla, Tex., as above. Other herds of which Mr. Stacey was not definitely informed but which he believed would follow the same program, would swell the total num ber of open market cattle to be landed in Montana and Wyoming this year, to 60,0(0 head, which is in addition to those already purchased and to be shipped in to purchasers. This latter class will number from best estimates about 40,000 head, making a round 100,000 cattle that will find their way to the ranges of northern Wyoming and eastern Montana this season. The bringing of cattle here to seek buyers will be a great advantage to a class of stock men who are runningolo small outfits, who want to mate small purchases, and cannot undertake the expense of shipping and sending an outfit to the terminus of the road for the cattle. This system will enable them to purchase small herds, relieved In great part of the attendan expenses we have mentioned, while larger buy. ers who have been unable to purchase .t figures that suited them, may find the southern dealers more complaisant and easier to handle when in the ene my's country.

During th tterrible ale and fires last week a train from the east had a ter ribl expedrenee two miles ea of Mt. Venom. Detructive ire was raing at that point and dust and mike made the surroundlngs dark as night. The engineer plunged the ain Into darkneee, and the inst thing be knew, he found the ties on fire for nearly a mile ahead. He hobecked the train. fearing to advanoe let be should find no track ahead. There In suuboating I smoke and beat, with blaing tlee underneaeth he trala ad luam each sid, track, Ilh-. 'rew sought t, extinguili thle tlaniri and save th train. Pa-n,,ngersbecame excited and prayed to be r.eleased fromu death by tire or suffocation that seemed to near at hand. For a tre escape seemed imiloslble and several of the pa-se gers gave up. everal ladies prayed aloud and on all faces was pictured( fright natural to mankind when death appears to be only a few moments hence. The train crew and ,passen gers worked heroically and men bent forward, gapplng for breath, felt their way to the tender and took water to dash on the burning ties. whis other went a few f,-et ahead o, the eLgine to' -ce wbither it wa s.afe to, utveaheaj.

But -t wa. death to :itgl r in t;iat +,'dtun of flit and when th., -urrouding . ither meant to Iiimove on or death, an effrt was worth the attempt and a start was made. The su.rpeuse and horror of the few moments relquired to pa over the burning track and through the terrible beat and smoke cannot be expressed, but bhe train finally pulled outof the flames into fresh air and s afety. CLOLOSED IT DOORI . Cashelr of a Mllnie.ota Bank Skipl. to ('an. ada. CvIcAGO, April 7.-A special dis I patch from Anoka, Minn., says: The doors of the First National bank were closed last evening. The .asbler is in Canada. There Is a woman in the case. B. F. Pratt, the cashier, went to Minneapolis a week ago last Thurs lay and on Friday tbh bank official were startled ly a notice from the Merchants' Bank, of St. Paul, that the ac'ount of the First National wa overdrawn ;N.,ssm. A messenger was at once dispatched to St. Paul and the discovery was soon made that Pratt had drawn about h,,iNct due the bank and about twice as much more on his check. The bank examiner was noti fled and gave the books a hasty over hauling, which showed matters to be in a bad way, and that Pratt was hort ;100,001,. Not knowing when or where the end might be, the directors con eluded to place the bank in the hands of an examiner audappoint a receiver. It is impoalble as yet to tell the ex tent of Pratt's villainy. The bank's correspondents, both in New York and Chicago, also allowed him to over. draw to the amount of $15,001r In ads dltion to this he raised $30.000 on a personal note endorsed by Mrs. Nee land, an aged widow, residing at Day ton, who trusted Pratt to manage her Iulneas matters to a large extent. It also appears that Pratt, in company with H. 8. Sparks, of thil city, had been speculating in wheat,and Sparks' account is overdrawn $10,000. Last summer the good people of Anoka were horrified to learn that Pratt was on intimate terms with a handsome young woman of doubtful reputation. The scandal soon became public property, and his wife took her two children and went to Boston, where they bhave since resided. Soou after this the grass widow also disap peared, but it is alleged shbe has since lived in Minneapolis, where Pratt supported her and her illegltimate child. There was quite a contest at the bank directory at the January meeting over his position on acoount of the scandal, but it was finally de cided he should close up certain busi ness matters with which he was fa miliar before severing his connectin, with the institution. It is believed his stealing. began at that time. The president of the First National bank is H. L. Picknor, a well-known busi. ness man of this city and one of the pioneer citizens of the northwest. The capital stock of the bank was $1560,(O,. Unless matters prove worse than ex pected the depositors will probably be paid in full. As yet no steps have been taken tohbut down the absoond ing cashier, but a reward for his cap. ture will probably be offethred at once. As be has had a week's start he is un doubtedly on the safe side of the Cana disn line. It is learned that he dia. posed of ll of his property in this vieainty some time ago A e TO WAR Msell r m e *S Deems tShakadmasmr/epeu.

The op ponelt ,f tra .strinly centralized gov crnmeniit iu-suted that the whole mat ter should be left to the states, even the matterof officers' pay. On March lU, 17s3. an anonymous call appeared in Washiili't.u's camp at Newburg, on the II:d-n, for a meeting of the general and tiehld officers of the army, including one oflicer for each com pallY, to discuss the aspect of affairs. The call was accompanied by an ap peal, written in violent language by Capt. A.rmstrong, son of Gen. Arm stronlu . Inl a general order, issued on Maarli 11, Washington denounced this call as irregular and subversive of discipline, and named a day subse quent to that mentioned in the call for a meeting in which to hear the re port of the columittee ent tocongress. By personal appeals to each officer he sought to calm their passions and pre vent hasty action. On the 15th the meeting was held according to the call, and Gen. Horatio Gates, who was suspected of being in sympathy with the authors of the appe was made chairman to prevent hii takirn any part in the discussion. A com mittee was appointed to draw up reso lutions, of which Gen. Knox, a close friend of Washington was made chairman. These resolutions wore passed in spite of the oplaoition of the a'thors of the meeting. Gem. Washington in an address urged the officers to place implicit contidence in the wisdom and justice of congress. Philadel ,lia Times. Olphait and Gould.
