In addition t.i the disaster already reported, the Riverside mills, in damage to plant and loss of cotton which floated away sustained a loss of $100,000. Twenty two bodies have been recovered. The captain of the steamer Swan. which arrived today, reported he saw on I the trip up the river, at least 25 corpses. The Chronicle estimates the death list at 60. Columbia, S. C., Aug. 28.- The crest of the great freshet, which, starting in the Piedmont section of the state, has swept through South Carolina, leaving ruined farms and I crippled railway lines in its wake, has now passed Columbia, and is1 moving toward the lower part of the state. The railroads are mraking strenuous efforts to restore the lines I of communication, and have succeed- I ed in a measure. Kingsville, 25 miles south of this city, on the Wateree, is surrounded by water, and every house in the town is deserted. TO STANDING ROCK The famous Standing Rock Agency in South Dakota is the Mecca to wards which Indians of four states are now wending their way. From Montana, Nebraska, Minnesota and South Dakota the former savage tribesmen, with their squaws and papooses have taken up the march to the Standing Rock, to be in at tendance at the big missionary meet ing. Probably 2,000 penitents will be assembled when the final destination has been reached. Many of the Indians from Poplar have passed through Glendive dur ing the past few days, bent on this mission. The assembled redmen and their tepees at the big encampment will be a sight worth crossing a con tinent to see. A few of the Poplar Indians took the train from here to Terry, and will proceed thence over the Milwaukee. T. E. COLLINS DEAD Great Falls, Aug. 31.-T. E. Collins state bank examiner of Montana, died late yesterday afternoon at his home in Great Falls of paralysis. He is survived by a widow, two daugh ters, two sons and a brother. Mr Collins was formerly state treasurer and for the past 25 years has been actively associated with the political aid commercial interests of Mont. He was 64 years of age. For more than a year Mr. Collins had been in ill health and last Febru ary. while in charge of the affairs of the State Savings bank in Butte, he suffered ail attack of paralysis. For several me nths he was confined to his home and his death was not unex pected. When the end came he was surrounded by all but one of the im mediate members of his family. The telegram announcing his demise reached his son Walter E. Collins, in Helena, after the departure of the night train for Great Falls. Mr. Collins was born in County Cork, Ireland Apr. 15, 1844. He came to America with his parents when a child, and crossed the plains with an ox team in 1864. In the fall of the year he located in Montana, and was among the first gold miners in Last Chance gulch. He wes elected to the territorial legislature in 1869, was one of the founders of Great Falls, served two terms as district clerk in Meagher county, was probate judge for four years, was democratic can didate ft." governor, but was defeat ed, and was state treasurer for four years. He was appointed state ex aminer by Governor Toole in 1904. CO. I IN MIMIC WARFARE Camp David S. Stanley, Aug. 25. (Staff Correspondence. )-With their imaginary main body almost complete ly demoralized, and with the "do or die" spirit dominating them, the ad vance guard of the Brown invading army force today dealt the Blue ad vance guard a crushing blow. The memory of the defeat of Sunday, in the imaginary battle of Tacoma, was an incentive to the Brown forces to revenge the defeat, and within an hour after the scouts first came in contact the right of the Blue center was entirely routed, the entire left was completely defeated and the wa gon train was destroyed by a heavy fire from hidden infantry and machine guns. At the beginning of today's battle the troops were separated by eight miles of American lake prairies. The Brown advance guard, commanded by Col. Peak, of the First North Dakota, was camped two miles north of the de file between American and Sequalit chew lakes. At 5 a. m. this morning, Maj. E. F. McGlachlin succeeded Col. Peak in command, and issued orders for a general advance, hoping by a forward movement to check the Blues and give rrore time for the Brown main body to reorganize after the dis astrous battle of Tacoma. Maj. Mc Glachlin sent the three companies of the Second infantry to Sprays lake to 0 protect that road, and another detach- a ment to Dupont, and kept the First v North Dakota, the Second Montana, n the Sixth infantry and the battery with his main body. The North Dako- t' ta was on the right, the Sixth in the C' center and the Montana fighters on his left. The victorious Blues were cmrnped near Becker's last night, with the ar tillery and cavalry still further south, near Roy. Col. Patch of the Second Idaho, who was in command last night, relinquished the command to Maj. Tredwell W. Moore of the First in fantry at 5 o'clock this morning. He sent the third infantry to the extreme right. He placed the First infantry on the right of his main body and the Second Idaho on the left, and kept the artillery in the rear to shell the Brown infantry, with the cavalry on the two flanks. The first firing opened near the J. R. Spray home, as the advance guards of both armies were rushing for the Spray.hill, apparently the key to the position. The Montana boys reached the hill first. The Sixth infantry was pushed on in front of the hill and took a position along a rail fence, which afforded protection and concealment. Maj. Moore ordered the First in fantry and the Idaho troops to ad vance. Much of the advance was across an open field, under the direct fire of the Sixth infantry and exposed to another fire from the top of the Spray hill by the machine guns and the Montana sharpshooters. This fire was too heavy and the First infantry was driven back 600 yards, and the Id aho men, who were advancing under the shelter of the trees had to retreat to save themselves from capture. Under cover the First infantry and the Second Idaho lines were reorgan ized. Montana boys pushed forward to the Sixth infantry line. When the charging Philippine campaign vete rans and the Idaho Guards again push ed forward, the Montana regiment ex ecuted a flank movement under the cover of a rail fence and caught them with a direct flank fire. At the same, I OFF FOR PARK Winners in Monitor Contest Now Enjoying Ozone of the Great Government Reserve. With happy anticipations of the treat in store for them, the four young ladies making the tour of the Yellowstone Park as guests of the Monitor, left on No. 3 Monday even ing for Livingston, from whence they were to transfer to Gardiner and the wonders of the Yellowstone. E. A. Martin of the Monitor accompanied them as far as Gardiner to see that they were properly started on their pleasure trip. Pursuant to expectations the vote in the contest during the last week was several times that of all the other weeks combined. With the end in sight it was apparent that the Misses Lucas and Galvin in the city and Miss Rice in the outside district would be comparatively easy victors. The only close contest lay between Miss Harper of Sidney and Miss Simard of Newlon. Miss Harper was slightly in the lead for a few days before the close, but as the end of the voting came in sight, Miss Simard jumped ahead and came out with several thousand votes to spare. The books i governing the contest are now open to the public and may be examined by f the contestants or their friends at any t time. All votes are very accurately t figured and tabulated. time the Dakota boys pushed forward on the right and formed a semi-circle around the Blues, with a fire that would have been fatal to most of the men. Ir During this melee in front, one bat- r talion of Idaho men with a troop of S cavalry made a wide detour around t the Brown right, and under cover of the trees, the cavalry made a brilliant d charge. d The forty-five Idaho men, who by this time had succeeded in rounding i the flank, charged forward in the face t of the fire of the entire regiment, ( which by this time had changed front v to meet the force they expected would I follow the cavalry charge. t At the same time the Third infan- t try and the Second infantry were hav- S ing a little game of war all to them- a selves. As the Third outnumbered the e Second, three to one, the fighting was t soon over. Maj. Moore's orders to the Third to attack the left flank of the Browns, failed to get there in time, and the Third never got into the main r fight.--Seattle Post-Intelligencer. p ART DEPARTMENT A collection of Japanese prints will s be one of the attractions of the Art cr Department of the State Fair this o fall. The collection will be the larg- & est ever shown in this state, and will T include prints from both the old masters and modern artists. Among them are a number of the famous Hira3higi snow storms and rain r. storms. Of the modern artists per haps the almost monochrone Konen's C are the most attractive, gray, shad- ' owy water scenes with just a touch IV of color being the most characteris- s< tic. * S The work of the Helena Arts and ; Crafts Society will be extensively shown at the fair this year. Hand some lamp shades, lanterns, trays and bowls in copper and brass, pen- Ce dants and buckles in silver set with tt stones, are among the articles made li by the members of this society. C Many attractive and original articles in stenciling will be exhibited. This mode of decoration for curtains, couch covers, table runners, etc, is c deservedly becoming very popular ' and many will be interested in this . arofit e exhibit. i ne The Monitor is more than satisfied ir with the result, as the amount of sub ie scriptions and new business brought e to this office will ultimately more i- than compensate for the considerable y expense involved. The contestants Le were all greatly pleased with the fine . trip in prospect and the comparatively d small amount of work among their Lt friends required to secure it. They r and their friends were all loud in their praise of the enterprise of this fami e ly journal in providing these fine trips k for the popular young ladies of this r county. n The Park season is really at its s best at present, with the cool, bracing s I air of its higher altitude. It is uni e verbally conceded that the travel for e the present season in Wonderland has s been greater than ever before. Not f only the general public from all parts of America and abroad has made the tour, but the procession of notables passing the Park portals the present I season has been unprecedented. The friends of the Monitor contestants can readily realize from this short outline the treat that is in store for their favorites on this fine tour. The travel in the Park is being made by the ever-popular Wylie way, which, is truly unexcelled. MR. ALBION OUT In this issue Henry R. Albion, at present deputy county surveyor, an nounces his candidacy for the nomi nation for county surveyor of Daw son county, subject to the will of the Republican county convention.

His education was obtained at the State School of Mines at Rapid City, S. D., and for some time he worked at his profession in the Black Hills before coming to Mon tana. Always considering duty first the popular deputy has won for him self the friendship of all his business associates. If nominated and elect ed the same faithful service will govern his work in the future as in the past.
