NEWSS OF THE DAY.
Troops Sent From Missoula to the Canadian Border-Great Race Near New York-Etc. NEW YORK, June 21.-There were twenty horses in the field for the Surbur ban handicap at Sheapshead Bay, on Sat urday. Eurus won in a ,canter by six lengths; Orifiamme second, a neck in front of Wickham, Grimaldi fourth. Time 2:12.- Mutuals paid $220 straight, .and - $75 for place. A magnificent floral horse shoe was presented to the winner. The value of the race to the winner is estimated at about $10,000. Considering the heavi ness of the course the time was very good for a mile and a quarter. The number of '1)ople on the track was estimated at 20, 00 ). At the very lowest estimate half a m !lion dollars must have been bet on the track. OVER A MIILL1ON DEPE.NDED on the winner. The bookmakers had1 ex tra help and they cohld not take the money in fast enough. Richmond was a tremend ous favorite. His trainer said before the race that he did not see how he could lose. Quito, however, had such a powerful fol lowing that he crowded him close on the market. Grimaldi, who has a great repu tation as a good performer in mud, was the pick of the track. Talent and Rupert were well supported, and the Haggins are said to have had $50,000 on Ben All. There was a great hubbub over the fact that Quito and Ben All were left at the post. LYNI , Mass., June 21.-In a speech here, Grand Master Powderly said: "I admit the boycott is bad. It is not good for anybody. On the other hand the lockout is bad. If the manufacturers drive out the Knights of Labor and conservative organizations like it, then the radical ones will come and will follow. So I will say to the manufacturers: 'Beware! Unless you meet the men half way there will he those who will not meet you half way and who will not be as friendly as the Knights of Labor.' The thing which the Anarch ist would hail with the greatest delight woull be the disorganization of the Knights of Labor. No man should be so blind as to thrust aside the hands of the Knights of Labor. I have held back the tand of anarchy in this country and have received no help from the manufacturers. They say there is no discipline in the Knights of Labor. Perhaps not. But there will be. We are having it now and if I command five thousand men, they will go where I say or they will go nowhere." NEW YORK, June 21.-For many years New Yorkers have been able to buy the fine fruits of California, but owing to the very high rates demanded by the railroads the quantities brought here have been very small and high prices have been asked. Grapes, pears and plums have predominated, while apricots and peaches have only been placed on this market the past two seasons. The present season the supply of California fruit in this market will be largely increased. The Pacific railroads have been wise enough to see that it is policy to encourage th' develop ment of the business of transporting fruit :Wross the continent, and have azreed to inun express freight trains of ten cars each : head of the fast passenger trains. To at comnodate this fruit these trains will arrive here in less than seven days from Sacramento, so the fruit will reach this market in a perfectly sound condition. New York will enjoy the luscious fruits of California this summer at lower prices than ever known before. FORT BENTON, June 21.--The River Press has issued an extra sheet with the following telegram from Col. Broadwater, dated Helena, Monday: "Advices received to-day say that the temporary and per manent line will go to Benton." It is reported that Jerry -Collins shed tears when Col. Broadwater's tele gram ws received. Rival merchants fell on each others shoulders and wept withloy. Real estate agents marked up prices a hun dred per cent, the river steamers display ed their bunting and the whole town with one accord wended its way to the saloons. To crown all, the River Press added anoth er column of plates and evoluted into a six column sheet. To increase the popu lar delirium, that journal issued a large extra and the newsboys made themselves hoarse as they cried it through the streets. The foreman .vas so excited that he placed a cut of Cleveland and Hendricks at the head of the column instead of the Ameri can eagle with the flag in her beak. WASHINGTON, June 21.-The depart ment of the interior has under considera tion a more liberal construction of the de sert land law by which, lands of this class may be more generally taken up and the work of irrigation begun as early as possi ijle. An official of the interior depart ment says: "If people are willing to go into the arid belts and take up 640 acres of land, paying what other folks pay for good land ($1.25 per acre) we are willing to give them all the oppprtunities neces sary to irrigate these lands by means of the expenditure of capital. We are in clined to relax our present stringent rules and allow a more liberal entry of these lands. ; Of course, monopoly or fraud will be prevented. but everybody ought to get at these lands who, in good faith buys and is determined to improye them..' M1ssouLA, June 21.-On Tuesday last a detachment of twenty five soldiers of the 3d infantry, stationed at Fort Missoula, passed through the Flathead Indian res ervation en route to Tobacco Plains, there to encamp upon the British border and await further orders. A detachment of Cainadian mounted poliee are also march ing to the same pointto encamp on British soil, just across the border and within hailing distance of the American camp, This movement on the part of our govern ment and that of the Canadian govern ment in concert; arose from a report that disturbances bf of a serious character may arise at any time along the frontier from lawlessness of the people, whites as well as Indians. LO.DON, June 21.-The follbwIng Ameriesas attended the jubilee ceremony to day: Jtaes Russell, Lowell; General Lawton, Unteg Stats mAilter tAatrs Jas. G. Blaine, Meusor Hale, Senator Mc Alons. HEULEA, June 21.-4arveyor 4eeral Green has jutrestrieelvedfla n od 'icto enediately make acotrat rtheu rvOy qiof soesulisbron the i's cianmm vation. Last winter there was appropriat ed for the survey of lands to be allotted to Indians in severalty the sum of $100,000. Of this amount $6,000hasbeen apportion e4 for the survey of lands on Pryor creek in the Crow reservatitn. Gen. Green has writen a letter to the department recommending that,-instead of ranges 25 and 26, which are not in Pryor valley, ranges 27 and 28 be choosen as the field of survey. These ranges are in the Pryor creek valley now occupied by the Indians. There is little doubt but that the department will comply, as there can be no objection. PrrrsBUr, Pa;, June 22.-The first train that ever run, or attempted to run, west of the Alleghany mountains with crude petroleum as the only fuel in its locomotive tender and fire-bbx, was the mail train west on the Pennsylvania road that arrived in this city the other night. It came through from Altoona on time and it came without.a stick of timber or a scuttle of coal to make steam for its mo tor. The pipes from the 200 gallons of crude oil in a tank in the tender did the business. The experiment was a complete success. Splendid time was made and there was no annoyance from smoke or cinders. The process is the invention of a Russian scientist, and Mr. Dudley of the Altoona shops has been developing it slowly but surely. It will, of course, prove a great streak of economy. The second section of the day express left for the east next morning with the same locomotive and fuel. PrITTSBUG, June 22.--The demand for iron and steel is still great, considering the immense quantity that has been turned out in this country in the last year. Generally at this time there is a falling off. The men don't care to work much in the three months to come and the man ufacturers use the time in making repairs. This year is an exception. Orders are still coming in for large quantities. There is still metal to be got, but the product is getting scarce. There is not a ton of un sold pig iron within several hundred miles of Pittsburg. In this city metal that has been stacked by for some years is be ing disposed of. In one place over 1,000 tons have been held for almost eleven years for higher prices and have just been sold. In this city all the iron and steel mills are in operation, excepting two. HELENA, June 22.-The Independent says: "From every side comes the testi mony that never in the history of Montana has a finer outlook been offered for an abundant grass crop and prolific returns from cultivated products. It is to be a great year for the fruits of husbandry and the aggregate wealth that will be returned by the liberal weather of spring will, on the whole, offset every dollar's worth of loss occasioned by the rigorous winter. Added to this is the prospect of mining business far in excess of that of any pre vious year in the history of the territory. and the enormous sums to be loosened by railway construction and the consequent influx of population and the effect upon all business enterprise. This is to be a great year for Montana." CHICACo, June 22.-McGarigle and Mc Donald have been found guilty of plun dering the people. The jury found that the defendants were guilty as charged in the indictment. The punishment of Mc Donald and McGarigle was fixed at 'three years each in the penitentiary. The pris oners and their friends were dumfounded when they heard the verdict. They had hoped for acquittal and were confident that if not acquitted the worst would be a mistrial. The judge declined to admit either McDonald or McGarigle to bail. The decision on this point fell with crush ing effect upon the defendants, their coun sel and friends. The convicted men were taken to the county jail. DUBLIn, June 21.-Several tenants ar rested at Bodyke forresisting the officers, have been sentenced to prison at hard la bor for terms varying from one to three months. After being sentenced they were taken to Ennis station under escort of the police. Crowds of sympathizing peo ple gathered and cheered them and be came so demontrative that they were ordered to charge and disperse them. This they did with a will and plied their batons so vigorously that several of the people were seriously injured. NEW YORK, June 22.-The $2,000 cham pionship of the world light-weight prize fight between Jim Carney, the English champion, and Jimmy Mitchell of Phila delphia, came off Friday night thirty miles up the Sound. Carney won by knocking Mitchell out in the eleventh round. It was a hard fought battle and one of the cleverest seen in many years. Time of the fight 41 minutes 40 seconds. It was the first ttme that Mitchell has ever been knocked out. NEW YORK, June 22.-Jay Gould's' health has not improved. He is still obliged to let business alone. His inti mates insist he is no longer troubled with insomnia and there is an earnest effort to give currency to the idea that he is no longer a sick man, but the fact remains that he is far from being well. His office desk is piled up with business that he is neglecting for the reason that he does not feel equal to the task of dispatching it. His life may not be in danger, but he is a sick man. ST. PAUL, June 21.--The Montana ex sion of the Manitoba on Thuriday last reached a point some -thirteen miles be yond Ft. Buford. Heavy rains had been falling in that country for about half the time in the ten days previous. The Mis souri river had swollen beyond its banks, and is now partially overflowing the bot toms. The movements .of the tracklayers were impeded by the rains and mud, but they have been making pretty good pro gress notwithstanding. ST. PATUL, June 21.--Th6 destructive cyclone which visited Grand Forks (not argo as at first reported) with deadly ef feet also entirely destroyed the village of Memcourt, an inland town about forty miles northwestof Aberdeen. A few per sons were injured, but none seriously. The tornado seems to have covered a great :deal of ground and to have ctrred death and destrution in its path.

Mean·· THE COMING ]LOLIDAYS. Everyone Preparing--Summer Goods in Demand-Picnics and Excursions. Great Falls continues to show signs of p rosperity. The business of the banks and stores is increasing and will be larger as the wool season advances. The mer chants are receiving large stocks of goods and expect more daily. In boots and shoes, hats and caps, silks and cashmeres, and ready-made summer clothes, our stores present a great variety of new goods, which are all in the latest styles and are sold at reasonable prices. Our merchants learn of every novelty that appears in the New York, Chicago or St. Paul markets and procure it promptly. The demand for holiday goods is large. Solomon in all his glory would have look ed plain compared with the stylish attire which the young folks of Great Falls will wear on the Fourth. The national holi day will begin, in effect, on the 3d, because Visitors are'likely to arrive on Saturday and everyone will be in a festive modd to render their stay agreeable. It is expect ed that there will be 400 people at the grand ball on the Fourth, and that the dis play of feminine loveliness will be im mense. There is talk of picnics and excursions after the Fourth, which will keep every one in a festive mood for some time. Many suiqmer tourists will arrive here and there will be visitors from Helena, Fort Benton and all around. Milwaukee Leading. MINNEAPOLIS, June 22.-The ball play ing in the Northwestern league during the past week was not remarkable by any means. Nearly every game played was dull and featureless. The hot weather may have had something to do with this dullness; no doubt it did. There was at the close of the week no important change in the standing of the clubs. The Cream City nine still has the lead with St. Paul a very close second. Oshkosh has passed Minneapolis and LaCrosse and is now in third place. The Minneapolis club, as usual, is winning and losing on the home grounds. The club succeeded in winning two games out of the series of three played with the La Crosse, but they couldn't keep up the record. The standing of the clubs in games lost and won to date is: Won. Lost. Milwaukee...................... . 22 9 St Paul............................. 21 11 Oshkosh ...................... 18 16 Minneapolis ...................... 17 16 LaCrosse .......................:... 16 17 DesMoines ....................... 17 18 Duluth ............................. 14 18 Eau Claire ......................... 7 27 The National League. MINNEAPOLIs, June 22.-The big De troit aggregation of ball players continues to lead the procession in the national league. Boston has been on the heels of Detroit for some weeks, but is unable to pass the men from Michigan. The national league clubs, however, played wonderful ball last week. Detroit once in a while loses a game, but not often. Their old op ponents, the Chicagos, wrested a game from them on Thursday. New York is in third place, as usual, in the race, and Chi cago has passed Philadelphia and is now in fourth place. The standing of clubs in games lost and won up to Saturday was as follows. Won. Lost.

NEW YORK, June 22.-A Washington dispatch to the Sun says the excitement over the proposed returning of the rebel bags has subsided in a great degree, but the full consequences of the political blun der of the President are yet to be felt by him and his party. The effect of the epi sode has been most depressing to those Democratic politicians who have taken a rose-colored view of the party's prospects and they now admit that the outlook all around is bad enough. In the west, es pecially, they say the party has been in jured irretrievably, and in the states where the majorities have been slender and whose success might have won the Re publicans are certain to carry the election by very large majorities. Follows our Example. There are some of the blood of our rev olutionary foredaddies left in Dillon. Our national birthdayis not to be entirely ig nored. At' a meeting of company E, Montana militia, it was decided to give a picnic and celebration in Solway's grove on July Fourth during the day and a grand ball and fireworks at night in the city. Appropriate committees were appointed. Captain Lamont, Lieutenants Moore and Smead and Messrs. Davidson, Jones and Andregg were named as the committee on arrangements.-Dillon Examiner. Right You Are. The Manitoba is coming west with mammoth strides, and soon the great re gion along the upper Missouri will re sound with the echoes of the locomotive whistle. By November the road will reach Great Falls and then will occur such a demonstration as was never before wit nessed in this territory or we terribly mis' take the nature of the timber of which Great Falls' business men are composed. -Dillon Tribune. Sound Logic, "To discontinue advertising," says John .Wannamaker, "is like taking down your sign. If you want to do business, you must let the public know it. Standing ad vertisements, when changed frequently are better than reaiding notices. They look more substantial and business: like, and inspire confidence. I would as soon think of doing business without clerks as without advertising." A Regular EUi. Great Fals, Montana is on the nmp.
