A Crime Committed in Germany Three
Years Ago Charted to a lore
It is learned from a gen~arnan from
Bozeman that the eastern Montana me.
tropolis has a sensation, and it is likely
that a prominent resident of that vicinity
will hlave the crime of murder fixed upon
him. The man in question is Earnest
Snyder. The name of the murdered man
was Rudolph Zimmermon. and the crime
was committed in Germany three years
ago, robbery being the motive and a big
pile of swag belug the result. No clew
to the identity of the perpetrator of the
crime was discovered until quite recently,
when it came out through the Indiscretion
of a Berlin Catholic priest to whom Say.
der had confessed the murder.
Snyder came to America and settled in
Montana, embarking In railroad contracts
and succeeded in. making a good deal of
money. About two years ago he fell In
with two brothers of the murdered Zim.
merman, and they formed a copartnership
for carrying on the business of lumbering
in the mountains near lBozeman. About
a week ago the Zimmerman brothers re.
ceived a letter from friends in Germany,
that they were on the trace of the mnur.
derer of their brother, and hoped in their
next letter to be able to state who he was.
This letter was read to Hnyder, who ap
peared greatly excited. The next morn.
lag he packed his valise and said lie was
going out hunting. They thought it
strange that lie should dress up In his best
clothes and take a satchel with him on a
hunting trip, but still suspectednodeeper
After three days' absence their fears
were aroused, search was instituted, and
their comrade was tracked to a precipire
where broken bushes and trampled snow
indicated a death struggle, and tihe disap
ipearance over the cliff of some one. They
took it for granted that Snyder had lost
his life in an encouuter with a bear and
returned to Bozeman. There a telegram
was received from Germany stating that
Snyder was the murderer of their brother
It was at once apparent that Snyder had
prepared the evidences of his death for
the purpose of misleading his partners,
while he made his escape. lie leaves a
large amount of property.--Inter Mount

A Parliamentarian Rebel.
Louis Riel, who Is now leading the
half lr eds In their rebellion against the
Canadian government, was elected to the
Hlouse of Commons by the half.breed
contingent some thirteen or fourteen year
ago. It is said that at the time he was
under a ban, and that a price was e't on
his head; consequently he dared not visit
the capital to o take his seat in Parliament.
Living at a great distance from the seat
of government, the mileage he would re.
calve as a member would amnunt to'qnite
a sum; and resolving to make somrethln-g
out of his election as long a he could
not serve in the House, he traveled to Ot.
taws in disguise, discovered his Identity
to the Secretary, drew his mileage, whlch
a'nounted to something near $1,000, and
got back to his constituency again before
the government officals could have him
arrested. Such is the daring spirit of th
mamn who is now leading the Northwest
Horses Taken Up.
We are In recelptof the followlng from
D:vid illdart, of Birch creek:
A man working for us found a horse
and mare traveling towards Dupuyer from
Birch creek, with ropes on them. He
drove them to the stable of Klpp &
Upham, thinking they belonged to some
traveler. We have since found that some
Indian had them cached or claimed them
and we know they must be stolen horsoes
and belong to some person In. the lower
country. We harv taken them out of the
s able and have them now on our ranch.
I have done this for the benefit of the
owner, for I know he will be more liattL
to get them than if the Indian had them.
The owner can have them by proving
property and paying costa of advertislng
and stable charges. Following is a de.
