Great Balls Sportsmen Much Excited Over
the Kilral,-Sullivan Fight.
he The national sporting topic in all parts
of the world is the great fistic match be
tween Jake Kilrain, the champion of the
world and holder of the "Police Gazette"
champion belt, of which he became the
possessor by John L. Sullivan refusing to
It enter the arena and battle for $10,000 and
d the trophy in 1887, and John L. Sullivan
who won the championship of America
by conquering Paddy Ryan, the Trojan
Giant, in a battle for $5,000 and the
is championship of America.
The match which these modern gigan
n tic gladiators of the ninteenth century
contended against each sther in the magic
circle was $20,000---$10,000 a side- (double
a the amount of apy sum any two cham
pions ever fought for), the "Police Ga
e itte" champion belt, value $2,500, and
e the championship of the world.
a The battle was governed by the new
rules of'the London prize ring, and the
fistic heroes battled with nature's weapons
unadorned. lNeither was confined to any
specified weight, as in all matches or en
c Counters for the heavy-weight pugilistic
premiership there is no limit placed upon
the weight of either the champion or his
s challengers.
r Klirain stands 5 feet 11% inches in
I height, weighs trained 195 pounds. He
is taller, bigger, more muscular, has a
longer reach and is four months Sulli
van's junior, and added to these advan
tages he is a splendid wrestler.
Kilraln is a native of New York state.
His mother was born in Athlone, Ireland,
while his father is of Irish descent but is
a native of Roxbury, Mass., which speaks
for Kilratp's pluck and great stamina.
John L. Sullivan weighs about 198
,pounds when trained down. He stands 5
feet 103 inches in height. He is ascien
Stif8 boxer, strong and muscular, and very
active on his feet. He is not by any a
'means an expert wrestler. He is anative a
of Boston. His parents are Irish.
The news of the Sullivan-Kilrain fight a
was eagerly sought for today and for a a
time the Rocky Mountain telegraph office a
and TRIBUNa office were crowded by I
those anxious to get the latest news.
Pools were sold Saturday at the Park b
hotel by Dyas & Renner. Judge Dyna
announced the terms and sol quickly I
many pools. Sullivan was the favorite, f
but Kilrain had strong backers. The t
.odds were sometimes four to one against 1
Kilrain. As soon as the qOficial declsion t
is received all pools will be settled
promptly at Schmitz & Henderson's.

Gives up Some of the Murdered Peo
e ple's Goods--d Consequenaes
of the Crime.
d A. Crowell of Tekamah, Nebraska, a
a brother of Mrs. E. E. Biggs, one of the
a party recently murdered in the Judith
basin quintuple tragedy, arrived in Great
Falls Sunday. Frank Joleff, brother to
Mrs. Kurtz of the murdered party, came
with him. ' he object of their mission is
to ascertain all the facts connected with
the murder, to see if the victims are
a properly interred and to investigate into
the affairs of the party. Mr. Crowell
states that the first news of the murder
i reached them through the Omaha papers
and this being only meagre the relatives.
of the people do not know to this day the
details of the affair. The reports gave
the name of Briggs, and as it should have
been Biggs, the relatives entertained a
hope that It was not their people who
were murdered. The Kurtz family came
a from Lyons, Neb. E. E. Biggs and wife
left their home last March and joined
Mr. and Mrs. Kurtz at the Grass Valley
camp, near Helena, where they conduct
ed a boarding house. After the mining
I operations were suspended the two fam
ilies secured all they possessed and Mrs.
Biggs wrote home to the effect that they
were about to start out and take some
land. Mrs. Kurtz has three brothers and
one sister living in Lyons, Burt county,
and Blrs. Biggs has a father, mother and
four brothers living in the same county.
Mr. Biggs' relatives live in Iowa. Mr.
Crowell did not know the six-year old
girl adonted by his sister.
Messrs. Crowell and Joletf left town
today for Lewitown. Mr. Jolef showed
a TalmnuNierephrter a photograph of Mr.
and Mrs. Kurtz and their adopted child.
It was taken in Helena just before they
set out for Maiden. Mr. Kurtz was a
tall, stalwart man, who would have been
more than a match 'or Wilber if he had a
fair chance for his life with that atrocious
murderer. Mrs. Kurtz appears to have
been a stout woman of gentle disposition;
The child, who stood at her knee, was an
intelligent little girl, in whose innocent
face there was na fears of, the awful fate
that so soon befell her and her guardians.
Mr. Crowell. has a photograph of his sis
ter, who was evidently a young woman of
good figure and intelligent features. Mr.
Joleff has a letter which he received from
his sister, Mrs. Kurtz, before she left
Helena with the party. In it she says
that her husband had stored their goods
and they were about to go in quest of a
hemestead. Mr. Jolef.says that some of
the missing money is on deposit in Hele
na, but the party had evidently $800 with
Last evening Messrs. Crowell andJolef
in company with Sheriff Downing went
to Mrs. Wilber's home. Mr. Joleft ques
tioned her closely about the property of
the murdered people and succeeded in
obtaining from her a gold ring, a grip
sack and a cooking stove and utensils.
He found also with her some note paper,
which corresponds, exactly with that
Which Mrs. Kurtz used m the last letter
she wrote her brother. He says that
Mrs. Wilber was very reluctant to part
with anything and only produced the
articles when he inquired for them. She,
denied all knowledge of any money. The
party finally looked through Mrs. Wilber's
goods and chattels, but found nothing
more. It is evident, however, that Wil
ber did not burn everything in the fire
which he made near the place where he
murdered the five people. He still kept
articles which if found with him would
have served as proof of his guilt.
Mr. Joleft says that his parents are al
most crazy because of the sad fate which
befell their daughter. It was their urg
ent desire that he should come on here
and sec that the victims have been accord
ed Christian burial in a cemetery.
The Sun tiver Sheep Company Mell their
The Sun river sheep company sold their
I wool today to Mr. Walker of Justice,
Bateman & Co. The price was 23 cents.
Rev. Mr. Flint, who is the principal
owner in the Sun river sheep company, is
in the city today.
,The wool compress in the warehouse
of solid masonry at Benton has not been
in use this season. The wool is hauled
dirttly to the railroad warehouse and
shlpped without being compressed.
The banquet to be given to the wool
growers will be held at the Rainbow club
rooms on next Saturday evening and at
the same time a north Montana wool
growers' association will be organized.
Part oef the Severance clip came today.
The wool receipts since yesterday sum
up about 100,000 pounds.
The balance of the Beal and of the
Smith & Ulm clips came in today.
About 20,000 pounds of the Sun river
company's clip were received today.
Seven car loads of wool have been
shipped since yesterday.

7 While strolling through the streets of a
- western city we noticed in particular one
aeatablishment. Our attention was at
tracted to it because of the courtesy and
cordiality of the inmates and the hospit
able and homelike feeling perading the
house. Y eti 0n entering, idle curiosity
was changedtowonder and astonishment,
and we beganyto.inspect the place more
closely. Rhnged on both sides and down
the centre sher piles of the choicest
goods. In tl~sdlik: department are late

beautiful daians and all shades, while

In fine dress goods there is a large as
sortment of tn fine goods as can be found
in Chicago; 4iieekte summer goods de

all kinds a.t. qualities, ginghams, per

is an endles' erity, of all shades, colors
and qualities to suit the most fastidious
taste; while in the hosilery department
there is suoh eidless variety and quality
that the shpp er is at a loss as to what he
wants. Ndie visited the shoe depart

ladies' and'~ ldren's ine shoes and slip

al· the de icehn ents in the large sales
room; but be'ore departing were invited
to the capaci us carpet room. Here is
displayed to t1e best advantage, the larg
eat stock of carpets west of St. Paul, and
we were astonished at the magnificence
of a $60 rug. On returning, the main
salesroom is seen in abroad panoramic
view. Down the centre of the room is a
large dlsplqg of novelties-ladies' under
wear and Alrgains of all kinds; while
at the sides the drapery of tidies, fine
lace curtains, veiliags and fine needle
work show the possession of skill and
taste in a marked degree.
To say that we were pleased with
our visit is drawing It very mildly. For

The well known house of Justice,
Bateman & Co, whiclis, represented at
Great Falls by Mr. Walker, has issued a
circular showing the importance of Phil
adelphia as a wool market. In reply to
a letter from the firm, Lorin Blodget, the
eminent statistician says that the amount
of wool consumed in Philadelphia and its
vicinity in 1888 was over 95,000,000,000 or
about one-fourth of all the domestic and
foreign wool manufactured in the United
States. The number of woolen mills is
Mr. Blodget finds that the wool re
quired for this year will greatly exceed
that used in 1888. Philadelphia has be
come a great market for woolen, worsted
and mixed yarns. The capacity of the
mills has been greatly increased since
1880. Mr. Blodget says it is safe to as
sume that one-third of the domestic wool
of the United States is marketed In Phil
adelphia or consumed in that locality and
that a total of about 100,000,000 pounds of
wool is made into yarn in Philadelphia
exclusive of the enormous quantities
sold there to mills in New England.
A Strong, Steady Market.
BOSTON, June 29.-We have had a
steady and strong market during the past
week, but the business has been rather
unevenly distributed, some few houses
doing the most of it. What has been
done has almost sufficed to keep the
lofts clear, and the bulk of the receipts
have been absorbed upon arrival by cus
tomers. Prices have not changed since
last week, and can be quoted as very
strongly maintained at the topmost quota
tions. It does not seem as if any further
advance was likely for the immediate
present, as manufacturers having sup
plied their wants for the time being and
the majority of them still being in the
dark as to what they are likely to get for
their goods, they are not feeling much
like speculating. More new gnods have
been opened during the past week and at
an advance of about five per cent over
last season's prices. Territory wools are
in steady demand and the sales for the
week amount 260,000 pounds of all kinds.
The principal sales are on a scored basis
of 62 to 68 cents for fine and 60 cents tor
(n medium. Prices range from 18% to
2 cents.
BosToN, July 5.-There is a very firm
market for all kinds of wool. Soles were
quite large this week amounting to
2,970,000 pounds of which 2,855,000 were
domestic No change has taken place in
prices, but the tendency is upward. Over
8,000,000 pounds of spring California
wools have been sold at 1 to 24, but
principally at 22 and 28. In territory
wool there have been fair sales at 20 to25
