The deceased was born in the George

father's plantation, Sept. 17, 1880. He
graduated as a civil engineer from the
College of Columbia, that state, and fol
lowed that profession from 1858 until the
war broke out. During the war he serv

was chief of engineers on Stonewall

of Important work on the Mississippi

The Upper Belt country is now robed
in a mantle of anow. Every mountain Is
a snow palace. Every gorge and coulee

seems as if all nature was enshrouded in
these pure white vestments, ready to be

Another dying year, almost gone, with
its myrluds of promises unfolfilled, of
hopes deferred until hearts were eick

Cauned by the Bursting of a Patly.
On December 28, while standing near
his saw mill, on Tillinghast creek, a
pully burst and struck near Mr. P. M.
Tolliver (without striking him), causing
him a severe shock. He soon afterwards
complained of being sick at his stomach,
but suid he had not been hurt and would
soon be all right. About 8 p. m. he went
to bed, still very sick. He went to sleep
the night and did not awake next.
mornng. t 8 . m. Sunday attempts
were made to awaken him, hat without
success. Doctors from Nethan and
White Sulphur Springs were brought hut
ail their efforts were useiesu. He re
mained in a comatose condition until 7 p.
sa. Jan. 1, when he quietly passed away.
-ihe doctors decided that a binod vessel
had been ruptured at the base of the
brain caused by the shock from the
bursting of the punly.
The remains were brought to this city
and the funeral took place at 9 p. m. to
day Rev. J. Anderseon officiating. Mr.
Tolliver leaves a wife and two children,
who are in Arkansas and are cot yet app
prieed of the husband and father's death.

NEw Yons, Jan. 8.-A Washington
special to the Sun says that the president
has made up his mind about Secretary
Windom's silver policy, outlined In the
secretary's annual report. The president
has adopted Secretary Windom's view of
the subject and goes. even further than
Mr. Windom in his approval of the pro
ject. The president was not chary lathe
expression of his approval of the measure
to a prominent politician, from wbpm the
information was obtained. A bill em
bodying the recommendation of the sec
retary will be submitted to congress very
soon. It is likely to be offered simultan
eously in both houses. Its fate In the
house is problematic. There Is little
doubt that a majority of the republican
senators and some of the democratic
t members of the senate favor the bill, and
F it is likely first to pass that body.
All ladiaseas. a
BtUrrE, Jan. 8.-Shortlybefore 9 o'clock I
yesterday afternoon private telegrams ra
from Helena announced the choice of T.
C. Power for the second United States
senator on the second ballot. The news c,
spread like wild fire and was soon the u
sole topic of conversation to the city.
The report was not given credence by
republicans for some time, as it was con
sidered an absolute certainty that a went I]
side man would be elected from among
the many named. When doubt was no
longer possible, the republicans beganto lc
express themselves in no measuead terms,
and to use expresalons which Would sot
look nicely in cold type.
Said one: "Charley Warken once I
called Montana the territory of Helena. d
I guess he called the turn, only it seems
now to have become the state of Helena."
Another one said, "d think it is an out- f
rage, and I don't see how itican be made P
right. West Side republicans may as 0
well take notice and move to No Mans'
land. There ls no place for them here."
A third remarked "Let us get the pan
handle of Idaho anm organize a separate
state. It is ouronly show to any repre
Still another said, "The re sntatives s
in the legilalture will. lsv, rdj time
:flig sqcare wtan the people on 'iol
matter. Hen who twelve months ago,
had never been heard of in politics, men
concerning whom the majority of the
people of Butte will today ask the ques
tion whether they are democrats or re
publicans, have been allowed to dictate
what the republican party of the state
should do."
And so the comment passed from one 1
republican to another. The democrats
are jubilant, and claim that the republi
can party on the West Side has received
a blow from which it will never recover,
and the republicans are still too mad to
contradict them. There is up telling
what will be the opinion of republicans
on second thought, but the above is a
truthful representation of their present
HELENA, Jan. 8.-In the republican
joint assembly yesterday Witter made a
powerful speech for the West side and
said that the republican party had aimed
a blow at the cause of labor by defeating
one of its champions.
Other members spoke in a similar
strain. Roberts and Boffman said that the
wnav awna nun acute sGORxD
without cause. Monteath regretted the
action of the majority, but all the west
alders agreed to abide by the voice of the
majority. Had Rickards but said the word
"Mantle would have been elected, but the
lieutenant governor expected the light
ning to strike him sand refused to support
Mr. Mantle.
F Bray and Dolman were fur everybody
to beat Mastle and cared nothing fr the
west side interests. Eastern and North
ern Montana were solid for Mantle. If
I Dolman and Bray had stood in a west
side man would then have been elected,
I but they did not. Hoftman, Roberts,
Thompson and Monteath were loyal, but
Bray and Dolman went back on the
went side, and so Helena gets two sena.
Paraest to Retire.
New Yoax, Jan. 8.-Edmund Yates'
cable says that the btatement about the
arrangement between Gladstone and Par
nell for concerted action at the next seo
slon is all moonshine. Parnell is so un
well that his appearances will be few and
far between. His health for some time
has been very unsatisfactory, and of late
it bus been growssg wurse. He is suffer
lug from a malady which Is attended with
fits of severe mental depremsion. He is
wholly unequal to the work which his
subordinates are ignorantly laytngoot for
him. The charge against Hr. Purneli in
the divorce oane wilt necessitate his teat
porary retirement from the leadership of
theparty, which for a time, will pass into
the b ttemanly hands of Jus
tice Mtderthy, but the policy will be di
rected by Dillon. There are those who
think that if Mr. Parnell gives up the
leadership he will never be permitted to
resume it as several of his lieutenants
have shown active signs of revolt.
