:D. . .. : p:: .. :..: :...... MA:: .. I per year, Striotlr inAdaneoo.... 60o following is the text of the objectionable article in the pro constitution: S* * All mines and mining both selaoer and in rock, in contalf or bearing gold, il , r, coal, or other valuable all be exempt from n d, Thbat all machin ,a'n mining, and all property Srfece improvements, appurto Sto or upon miningdelaims, which .e .rateand ladndont val th" ale oi the surface ground in said olaims, and tho an nest nroeeds of said mining shall be taxed as provided by y plausible arguments can sought to bear upon this article for or against. But to illus Suppose a party of eastern lsts invest $100,000 in a mine, peling perfectly sure that it is a investment, but prefer allowing mine to lio idle a few years until can develope the property more ply, or they have a chance to sell good figaure. They figure that have no taxes to pay, and all they possibly loose is the interest on money invested. Now, supposing were assessed each year for two the value of the mine, and were igd to pay the regular rate of tax do you suppose they would al the property to lie idle and let the - eat it up? No; it is not reason St suppose they would. They be obliged .to work the mine -as soon as all the mines in Mon have to be worked to make the ent a remunerative one, so Swe enter upon a season of un ded prosperity. fa man invests $100 or $100,000 in ntana real estate, he has to pay on it, whether he allows it to idle or cultivates it, and if the estate owner is obliged to pay on ncultivated land, why should a eopitalist be obliged to pay on the money he has invested his prospect? We see nogood rea why he should not. The equali on of taxation demands that every a shall pay his portion toward ing up our government, and as as such discrimination as that is ed to the capitaliste, so aofo will outraged people arise and east off yoke which is galling in the ex e. When this article is stricken the constitution we then accord t our support and good will, but such is the case, put us down as nistie to it. We are not exact favor of a law that exempts a 000 mine owner from taxation, le we are obliged to pay taxes on ashington hand-press and a $10 uses audience greeted Hon. Hi l nowles, candidate for Delegate Congress, and Wmin. H. Hunt, nom for District Attorney, in Murray on the evening of the 15th inst. . Hunt made the opening speech, reviewed both political parties for past twenty years, setting forth o merits and demeritu of each in a terly mauner, which frequently icited merited applause. Mr. Hunt destined to be an orator of which atana may well be proud. He is paratively a young man, yet with start he now has, is bound to fig in the political history of Mon , and will prove himaolf to be a an of whom his party neetd never 1 ashamed. After Mr. Hnnt had concluded, Hon. Hirtum Knowles as introduced. His introduction acknowledged by the andionc: by d and contined applause. Mr. owles spoke at some length upon issues of the day, and convinced hearers that the Republicas party u not in error when it nominated as its choice for delegate. Mr. aowlos is a man well and favorably Down throughout the Territory, and Id he be elected his constituents have no fear but that be will k after the interests of Montana to e best of his ability. THE Herald still continues its sense vaporings against the SUN, and ntiaues charging it with selling out o the Democratic party, in the face ' the certificate signed by the most romninent Republicans of Northern 1evis and Clarke, published in our at issue. The signors of that certifi ate were not "inveigled into the home of subscribing to the instru ent,,' as the Herald says, but they id so of their own free will and ac ord. The charges made against us 'Y the Herald carry no weight with Ihem, hencewe do not care to use our lumns for the purpose of refuting heir base and senseless charges. It is an established and well.known.fact tht whenever the Herald attacks a 20a1t or a newspaper it does more good tiljury, as it charges are as rot tea and of a character as foolish as Sit" ,Oit The Herald is actuated by elousy in' its war against the SvN, ' adis seekfdg to injure it by mali 05s, contemptible and scurrilous linfg, which, owing to the character f the Vapoer will fall far short of its auvwh, Tn1 expedition sent by the domin ion government to explore Hudson bay and straits has returned to St. Johns, N. F. As yet the value of the result is uncertain,. but it is hoped that the obsorvations and investiga tions will be of considerable benefit, particularly as regards navigation in those waters. Arma much delay the President has appointed Frank Hatton to the office of Postmaster General, vice Gen. Gresham, transferred to the Treasury Department. Coming so near the close of the present adminis tration, the appointment naturally has little significance. A Chinese Funeral. All Mongolia turned out last Sun day to the grandest high-cockalorum Chinese funeral that was ever seen in those parts. manners and flags and all sorts of gay trappings were flaunt ed in the funeral cortege, muchly to the terror of restive horses and the city kids, and the almond-eyed heath ens wore evidently doing their level best to give the defunct a good send off to the Confucian heaven. Buck Fanshaw's famous funeral wasn't a circumstance to it. The ceremonies, including the adoration of the roast pig, were performed on the open street, and were witnessed by hun dreds of curious Cancassians before the procession started. Interviewing one of the grand moguls of the mob as to the cause of the unwonted dis play, our reporter was informed that the departed had in his lifetime been a "big fleemason, nile same Hickman and Henly Elling," the celestial vol unteering the further information that "he die too quick-next week he be gland master, nale same Bludder Dun can." It was the dandiest thing out in obsequies, and if the soul of the distinguished dead had been hovering around the parade, it could not but havobeen almost tickled to life at the gorgeous style in which its lately va cated cadaver was being escorted to the bono-yard.--Madisonian. Bear Killed by a Twele-year-old Boy. Last Saturday Earnest Bean and his brothers, Sam and Phillip, were out hunting on the head of Lyons creek, about thirty-five miles north west of Helena, when they suddenly encountered two bears-a she bear and her cub, the young one, however, being as big as its mother. The ani mals at first showed a disposition .to investigate the hunters, but a volley of cold fJl -satisfied their curiosity. The old boar retired with a broken back to the seclusion of a timbered gulch near at hand, but the young one stood his ground and evinced a dispo sition to object to the proceedings, whereupon Earnest and Sam gave him two more shots, to which he paid no more attention than if he had been fired at with paper balls. Phillip, the youngest of the three brothers (a lad but twelve years old), then raised his gun and fired, shooting the shaggy monster dead, a feat of which is (and has just reason to be) proud. The old bear was tracked some distance through the brush and timber, but was not overtaken. The cub's skin was brought to town yesterday, certi flied to before Judge Smith, and the bounty of $8 drawn.-Herald. The First Convlction. James Nelson, alias Geyser Jim, was a few days ago arrested at Fire hole station in the National Park on the chargo of petty larceny--stealing a pair of gloves. He was tried before Judge Weimer under the Wyoming laws, convicted and sentenced to nine ty days imprisonment. . The only jail in the park has just boon completed at Fireholo Basin, but as that is far up in the mountains where it would be practically inaccessiblo during a great part of the term of Mr. Nelson's sontence, he will be taken to the coun ty jail at Evanston, Wyoming, the county seat of Uintah county, in which the Park is situated. Evanston is on the Union Pacific almost in the ex tremo southwestern corner of the Tor ritory of Wyoming. This is the first conviction obtained for a offense com mitted in the Park. The sentence looks like a hard one.-Enterprise. Conductors In Troble. Ad.vices received from headquarters are to the effect that *for soveral months past conductors on the North ern Pacific have been afraid of their heads. Nino have been discharged, and those who remain are in hot water for fear that their heads will come off too. Head officials are very reticent, but it is understood that spotters have been at work for some time and have furnished information to the effect that the boys were not dividing fairly with the stockholders. The names of the discharged conduc tors are withheld for the prlesnt.- Journal, 'Toward Monlltana. Winnipeg telegram: Donald Grant, contractor of St. Paul, received from England a contract to build a, railroad from Moeicino Hut, on the Canadian Pacific to Bolly river, near Montana, one hundred and seven miles in length. ---- -·------ Wednesday a freight train coming down the mountain side of the Matl len tunnel broke in two or throeo plrts and badly duleolished. Something of a Mystery. Near the bank of the Missouri river a few miles below the Gate of the Mountains is a lonely spot, where the rugged eljs retreat a bit from the river side, at a point where a small stream yields its slender contribution to the might of the Missouri. Here recently a party of pleasure seekers beached their boat tor the purpose of lunching. While waiting for the cof fee to boil two or three restless mem bers of the party urged their way through the stiff brush fringing the bank, and after being gone fifteen or twenty minutes returned to say that they had found something back in the little bottom land which seemed to in dicato that this quiet place had at some time been the scene of a tragedy. The loungers about the fire follow ed the discoverers back a hundred stops or so from the bank, when they came upon a level piece of ground some thirty acres in extent and shut In on every hand, excepting toward the river, by the mountains and cliffs. It seemed to be inaccessible (except perhaps by a bridle-path over the mountains, or from the river) to any living thing excepting the mountain sheep or some winged creature. In the middle of the opening was found the ruins of a log cabin, the logs, excepting those composing the foundation, being scattered in every direction as if to level the building with the ground so it could not he seen by occasional boating parties on the river. The house had at one time been occupied, and the crude cooking utensils and scant furniture gave proof of its having been the habita tion of some lonely "bach." The ar ticles referred to were scattered over the floor promisenously, and in one corner was a tumbled-down bunk with its scant bedding and the hay which served as a mattress, monldering to gether, already showing the decay of years. Some clothing was mixed with the rest of the abandoned articler, and among it was a coat, in one side of which was a rent looking suspici ously like the gash of a knife, and the cloth surrounding it was darkened as by a long ago stain of blood. This fact, taken with the loneliness of the place (miles and miles from any other habitation), its inaccessibility, and the condition in which things were left, made it not a dillicult thing for one of any imagination to fix it as the one time home of some man or number of men whose business did not mnake it advisable to live in a ipore neighborly manner---horse thieves, perhaps-and that the life here ended in some tragical manner. The party looked for a grave, or a skeleton int the bushes, but hastily without finding anything. Thin was all.--Herald. Wanted for Attempted Wife Murder. E. T. Henderson, of Kansas, has ar rived in Helana with a requisition from Governor Glick requiring tile apprehension and delivery to Mr. Henderson of one James M. Gustin, who is wanted in Kansas for attempt ed murder. The offense was commit ted at Wellington, a hard town near the southern boundary of the State and situated on the cattle trail from Texas. The person whom (ustin at tempted to murder (ho tried to cut her throat with a razor) was his wife, Jon nie E. Gustin.

Williams, four miles south of town, had boon robbed. The robber was c&'ptnred Friday morning at Pioneer, and is now in durance, the following being the circunmstances: The facts of the robbery were stated to Sheriff MoMaster, who, among other methods of arresting the perpe trator, on Friday morning telephoned them, and an inventory of the articles stolen to Win. Brent, Pioneer. The inventory included a Winchester rifle and a revolver. He had soarce re ceived the message when a stranger offered a rifle for sale in the Bed Rook saloon at Pioneer. McMaster was called up, and he advised a party to tell the stranger that he preferred to buy a pistol, whereupon the unsus pecting victim of the plot produced a pistol answering the description of the one stolen. Peter Fowler, a con stable, was thereupon advised to ar rest him on suspicion, and, on doing so, besides the gun and pistol, found on him pairs of pantaloons, boots and socks (the property of John H. Wil liams), $2.80 (the balance of $4 taken belonging to Mr. Honk), two finger' rings, two amethyst ear-rings and breastpin, one razor, two silk hand kerchiefs, three collar buttons, one watch chain, a pocket knife and a pocket book, all taken from Mr. Wil liams' house. Mac went to Pioneer and brought the prisoner in, finding concealed in his fob pocket the small gold watch, which completed his "take." On Saturday he was taken before Judge Bills as committing magistrate, gave his name as George Barnes; said he had boon in the Ocour d'Alones: had got broke and committed the act while drunk. He plead guilty, and in default of $1,000 bonds was com mitted to answer to the next grand jury. The value of the property tak en aggregated about $140. Barnes was heading for the Northern Pacifc; had stopped at the crossing of Rock creek Thursday night, and paid out $1.20. In the morning he had been directed to the railroad, but missed his way and wandered into Pioneer, where his penalties began. He says it was the first offense, and it would not have beenl committed but for be ing drunk.- New North-West. *-0 TEIlItTORIAL PAILAURAPI'IIS.
