Whet Railroad Employes say of Jobe and Barrell. Conductors Jerry Flanagan, Tiernan Allen and other railroad employes were well acquainted with Jobst and Burrel who were murdered yesterday. F. C Jobst came into Montana last fall froen New London, Wisconsin. He was firs breakman en a passenger train with Con ductor Simpkins on the Manitoba railroad, betweenflasecow and Minot. He was so employed in November and Decbmber Then he came here and stayed with his friend Burrell until the situation at Silver was offered. It is recalled that he was among the first to receive one of the new uniforms that were distributed last fall. He told a conductor that he was on the Wisconsin Central before he came to Montana. George F. Burrell was a day operator at Glasgow on the Montana extension of the Manitoba railroad and was transfer red hence to the Manitoba depot here last January. He remained as night op erator in the superintendent's office until March 17, when he left here and it is nn derstood had since been with with his friend Jobst at Silver, awaiting employ ment. Some say that he was from Detroit, but most railroad men are of the opinion that he and Jobst came from the same town in Wisconsin. It is said that they came out here at the instance of Blair the secion hand. Burrell was fond of thle violin and took pleasure in giving lessons in playing it to some railroad men at Glasgow. He was also at Hins dale, which is 25 miles west of Glasgow. lIe was about 18 months altogether on this division of ihe Manitoba railroad. A railroad official says: "Burrell's relatives live at number 695 Clinton avenue, De troit, Mich. He was attentive to his du ties and of good moral character. HIe was greatly liked by his employers." The railroad employes in town are gratified at the speedy retribution which followed the murder of Jobst and Bur rell. TEE GLORIOUS FOURTH. IG reat Falls Preparing for the Great Day. Charles Weguer presided at the meet I uing held last evening in the council room to prepare for the Fourth of July. E. A. Dickerman was secretary. Mr. Wegner said: "We are met to prepare for the celebration of the Fourth of July, which has become an established customsea well-s. arattional duty in Great Falls. We celebrated the day when there were only a few houses in town-when we met in Jerry Queesnelle's unfinished building on First avenue South and had adance at Wamer's." [Applause.] Each year since, we have had a good hearty celebration which our own people and the people of the neighboring coun try have greatly enjoyed. Helena and Kibbey are preparing so we must not be tardy. Many people may go to Helena to see the delegates but we all cannot go there and we can have just as touch fun at home. [Applause.] We owe ti to our selves that in this memorable statehood year Great Falls shall come to the front and make hgreelf heard. [Applause.] Alderman Webster-The time is short to prepare for a coming celebration. We must not be left behind by any place in honoring the glorious Fourth. If we all act with unanimity we can make the cel ebration an unqualified success. [Ap planse.] After some remarks by Mesars. Jensen, Race, Tod and others, the chair appointed I a committee composed of Messrs. Jensen, Race, Pence, Schmitz and Mathews to I confer with the citizens and whoop it up t generally. The committee will meet to report Friday evening at 8 p. m. sharp, when another meeting will beheld, to t which the public at large are cordially invited. t Early today the committee organized - and set to work with good results.

Generous People Feeding the Hungry t The Registry Nearly Complete Nine Hundred Army Tent. in Use. JOHNsTOWN, June 5.-The best esti mates this morning on the loss of life based on the registry of the living and an unofficial poll, is from 12,000 to 15,000. In the midst of this scene of death and desolation relenting providence is exert. ing a subduing influence. The tempera tine remains low in the Conemaugh val ley. It is a benefit inestimable and should it continue for a few days longer it is possible a hundred bodies may yet be re covered, in a state of preservation, so as to render identification possible. Over 6,000 men are at work n the val ley. As the rubbish is gone over and the bodies and articles of valve recovered, the debris is piled up and a torch applied. In 24 hours more every mass of rubbish will probably have been searched, and the investigation will be confined to the smoking wreck at the Johnstown bridge. At the commissary station this morn ing, 15,000 people were fed and 00fam ilies provided with provisions. Five carloads of clothing were distributed. Now almost every one is provided. At the different registration places 8,000 res idents of the devastated district have reg istered. The total population of this dis trict, was between 40,000 and 50,000. 'There were hundreds of people waiting around the offices to have their names placed on the list of saved. It is thought that by tomorrow night 85 percent of the survivors will be regis tered. A very large portion of the lost are children. The general opinion is that fully 1,500 bodies will never be found. Nine hundred army tents have been received and two white walled vill ages now afford shelter to nearly 6,000 homeless people. Talk of rebuilding the town has already begun and it Is thougit that the great Cambria Iron Works will be running again in 40 days. REGISTRATION DISTRICTS, rhe County Divined into ten District for the Purpase of Registration. The county commissioners at the morning session today took up the regis tration law and in accordance with it provisions divided the county into tel registratibn districts, in each of which t registry agent will be appointed. Oun neat election occurs October 1st and al that time the new law will be in ful; force and effect. Following are the dis tricts: District No. 1. Great Falls and Watson townships, which include the precincti of Great Falls, the Lakes and Ulm No. 2. Sun river township, including Sun river and Sun river Leavings pre incts,. No. 8. Cascade and Stiokney town. ships, including Cascade, Mission, Mid Canyon and Stickney precincts. No. 4. Chestnut township, including Chestnut and Gorham precincts. No. 5. Part of Truly township includ. ing the Truly precinct only. No. 6. Part of Truly township, includ ing Soldier precinct only. No. 7. Sand Coulee and Upper Sand Coulee precincts. No. 8. Belt township, including Belt, Cora, Upper Belt and Willow creek pre cincts. No. 9. The Kibbey precinct. No. 10. Geyser township, including the Davis creek and Grafton precincts. There will be one place in each of these districts where voters can register -at the office of the agent who may be appointed by the commissioners. The time for registration extends over a per iod of 82 days, so that no voter need miss the opportunity of having his name re corded or lose hise right of franchise be cause of the provisions of the pew law.

Rolfe Mnoh Dlsgrantsld-Park Commles lsoners. t When Mayor Fairfield after an inter val of a fortnight took the civic chair last evening Aldermen Gerin, Bridges, Clin ton, Johnson, Hickory, Hotchkiss, Al brecht and Webster-a full board. Clerk and City Attorney Ledslie had a large bundle of communiiations which he proceeded to read after e minutes had been read and adopt ,- He read from the com e on ordi fe nances, an ordinance to gulate the width of sidewalks whic ave rise to 0some discussion in whlidh Aldermen d Johnson, Clinton and Webser took part. id Finally the ordinance .w read for the first time. Another ordinance was 1fd. It pro d vides for the appointment€ of two park Is commissioners, one of whom is to hold Soffice one year; the other, too. They are to have general control of the parks. This ordinance met with general favor and was also read for the frit time. When the disposal of the printing bids came up Rolfe who who we h present be came r estless. He had a pposed that I b he had everything so fixed that he would be awarded the contract. The bids as read showml that Rolfe e wanted four cents per line. The TauBUNt E offered todo the city printing for three t cents a line. Alderman Johnson inquir-I ed what date was named for receiving t 0 tenders? He was informed June 4th. Alderman Gerin said that he asked Mr. a Leslie to advertise for tenders for the city I printing as he deemed thatthe best way t to dispose of the matter. Mr. Leslie said he gave due notice. He 8 added that he received Rolfe's letter and J handed the inner envelope which contain- k ed the bid, unopened to the mayor. n Mayor Fairfield explained that the us ual course had been observed to regard to the receipt of bids. When Bolfe saw that he had lost he be- h came furious. His eyes became fiery and standing up he salid: "Mr. May- T or, may I see that envelope of mine?" ti After a pause the mayor Sent him the en velope, which Rolfe exalined suspicious ly. Then he subsided. The aldermen p and spectators were indigoant at this in- hi suiting implication that the envelope had been opened, but they let the matter pass. Alderman Johnson moved that the TI TRIBUNE be awarded the contract as the dr loweostbidder. ' vc Alderman Clinton moved that the bids co lie on the table. by Finally Mayor Fairield put the ques- to tion to the board, who all voted that the mi contract be awarded to the TRIBUnE. wt Rolfe walked out a sadder and wiser ca man. The subsequent proceedings inter ested him no more. The board took a recess and audited at the following bills: P. Sweeney, $9; J. thl W. Stanton, $114; E. Mitchell, $10; Ira at Myers & Co., $88.20; Electric Light Co., ral $9; Matt Dunn, $100; J. B. Leslie, $82,- po 50; G. E. Huy, $10; J. Byrnes, $14.50; ral H. Ringwald, $39; J. C. Johnson, $119.20; It J. P. Lester, $72. vel Alderman Johnson received more time tlo to report on licenses end taxes. He Jol caused quite a breeze by moving that the electric light appropriation be henceforth He reduced to $4.50 per month. pro Visions of dark chambers, dripping oil rut and fying chimneys dawned on the al- a.t dermanic mind and there was a pause. Mayor Fairfield finally said: "Gentle- 1 men, what are you going to do?" sul Alderman Clinton moved that the lights ave be discontinued entirely. two Alderman Webster said that the com- the pany would no doubt reduce the price for I the service to $1.50. thi Alderman Geroia-I approve of Mr. Fa Webster's suggestion. As this company, out which is largely a home institution, has Bu had the enterprise to establish works hel here which add to the importance, com- Hit fort and appearance of the city, I hold Ilg] that it does not become us to treat them abc rudely and discontinue their light in or der to save a few cents. I doubt if any- in thing would be saved. I hope that we Fal shall display more pubhc spirit. wai Alderman Gerin's remarks, which were oft spoken with emphasis, clinched the pmat- mu ter, The electric light will continue to unt throw lustre on the aldermen, but the company will be asked to reduce the rate to $1.90. While Alderman Gerin was speaking the minature cyclone carried oft his Dun. lap and it seemed probable that he would be hatless. A search expedition was sent out, who found the hat and brou.ht it back in triumph.

TWO OPERATORS KILLED BY ROB BERS AT SILVER. The People Pursue the Murderers-They Brine Them to Bay Near Malrys ville and Shoot them Down Without Mercy. [Speoial to the Tribune.] SILVER, June 5.-intense excitement has been caused by the murder of Jobst and Burrell, the pursuit and killing of the murderers. The details are as fol lows : About 7:45 o'clock this morning two men of suspicious appearance, who had been seen hanging round here yesterday, came to the depot of the Montana Central at this place, which is 17 miles from Hel ena. They were evidently intent on rob biog the depot, which at times contains property of much value. TIlE SCENE OF THE CRIME. In the depot, which is a wooden struc ture one story high, were F. C. Jobst, the railway agent and operator, and George W. Burrell, a telegraph operator who was staying with him. Both were in bed. Whether the robbers expected to find them there or were taken by surprise may never be known. It is certain, however, that as soon as the robbers entered the depot one or more shots were fired, one of them inflicting a fatal wound on Jobst. Burrell jumped out of-bed and rushed to the section house to give the alarm. Just as he went in the door one of the robbers fired and shot him. The poor fellow hadi just strength enough left to enter the kitchen, where he fell dead in about five minutes. THE PURSUIT. The alarm was now given by the sec tion men and others. The robbers fled hastily. Billy Johns mustered hastily four men, who pursued the murderers. They followed them briskly in the direc tion of the brush near Marysville Find ing themselves at bay and rendered des perate by the prospect of certain death, the robbers fired ou their pursuers but hurt none ot them. Hr TE PEOPLE AROUSED. By this time the news had spread There was a general rush to arms. Hun dreds of men clutched rifles and re volvers and made toward the scene of the conflict. The excitement was intensified by the report, happily false - that two men had been shot down by the murderers. It was proclaimed that a re ward of $250 would be paid for their capture, dead or alive. QUICKLY AVENGED. Mssanwhile the robbers had been held at bay in the brush near Marysville. Here they were in a gulch with sloping hills at either side. The pursuers increased rapidly in number. Escape became im possible. Finally the rattle of musketry rang out and one of the robbers fell dead. It is supposed that General Sears of Sil ver fired the fatal shot. Other shots fol lowed and the second robber fell dead. Jobst and Burrell had been avenged. The news was sent at an early hour to Helena. The Montana Central prepared promptly a special train which soon came rushing into Silver with many armed men aboard, PUBLIC INDIGNATION. The rage of the people has somewhat subsided since the murders have been avenged, but when they consider that two worthy citizens have lost their lives the Indlgnation is great and general. F. C. Jobst, who was the first victim in this terrible affair, came here from Great Falls, where he had been staying while out of work with his friend George W. Burrell. He was a young man of medium height and weighed about 175 pounds. His complexion was sandy and he wore a light mustache. He left Great Falls about March last. George F. Burrell was night operator in the superintende.t's office at Great Falls in February and March last. He was from Detroit and was about 22 years of age. He was short and wore a black mustache. He was staying with Jobst until he could find work. DEATH OF JOBsT. Jobst lingered until about noon when he died. He never spoke after receiving the fatal wound. None of the Purauenrs Shot. HELENA, June 5.-About 12:80 the rob bers were surrounded in some brush. The pursuers called on them to surren der, but the only answer was a volley of shots. The posse returned the fire, kill ing both. None of the pursuers were in Jured. The bodies of the murderers are being brought to Helena now. Found Gullty, HBTyE, Sune 8.-The jury found Rob erts guilty of murder in the first degree io the first ballot yesterday. The crime was committed only last month. Do Not Suffer Any Longer.
