H-ICAOo, April 10.-A morning paper
paper says that the details of a fraud in
connection with the failure in 1887 of
the great barbed wire manufacturers, I
Sherman& Marsh has just come to light.
It appears that Eben J. Masbh, manag
ing partner of the firm, seeing that fail
ure was inevitable, laid his plans to de
ceive the creditors, and to feather his
own nest. He entered into a conspiracy
with Charles H. Lane. a New York
broker to make it appear that he (Marsh)
was speculating heavily in stocks.
Marsh then bought up as much wire on
credit as he possibly could, stored it in I
warehouses and borrowed money on the
receipts. In this way he got together 1
about 0150.000. This was placed in
Lane's hands to be held for Marsh until
after the failure qf the firm. For his
services Lane was to get 826,00.. When
the failure of the firm was announced
Marsh confessed to the creditors that he
had been speculating in stocks and
showed receipts from Lane to prove his
his saeebrtion. While this was being in
vestigated Lane took all of the $150,000
and left the country. Marsh followed
him to Europe, but was unable to find
hips. In the meantime the creditors of
the firm put detectives on Lane's track
and it is understood they found him and
induced him to give up $7,000. Marsh
was also taken in hand by the creditors,
and compelled to turn over to them $26,
000 which be had realizedon some Chicago
real estate. Marsh is now said to.be a
salesman for a lumber firm in Baton
Rouge, La.

A Column Added to Each Page to Meet
tile Gtrowig Demands of the
Thursday the TRIBUNE appeared in an
enlarged form. The increase in size has
been rendered necessary by the growth of
sdvektisementa which encroached upon
our news columns.
While the TnrntNE is always desirous
to accomlnodate its patrons,it feels bound
to make space for the current news,
which is every day increasing in import
once and interest. It has recently lssued
supplements to accommodate both adver
tisers and readers, but we are convinced
that the public will prefer the enlarged
sheet which we issue today.
The TRrnBnE is resolved to keep pace
with the growth of this growiug city. It
developed in 1887 from a weekly paper
into a five-column daily, with semi-week
ly editions. It soon became necessary to
enlarge its page to six columns, then to
seven and now to eight columuns. The
sheet which we present today contains 32
columns and is the largest printed in
SMontana, except the papers published in
the more populous cities of Heleua,Bistte
and Anaconda.
The enlarged size of the Tn]isvNur will
be used to render it more interesting ar:1
useful than ever to its numerous readers.
It will continue to keep before the pub
a lic the matchless resources of north lion
l tans, whose development will impart in
s crehsedimportance and wealth to tlis
r portion of the state.
Our semi-weekly paper will also be
I enlarged and will maintain its position
n as the popular favorite of the rural pop.
ulation and miners of north Montana.

The wind for the past few days has era

pushed steadily, although under great elf
disadvantage. The stone and brick
masons and excavators get along very Be
well but toe wind interferes seriously Wi
with the carpenters.
J. D. Gore has eight men at work mov
ing his brick house to make room for his I
large hotel building. This new building lea
will be one of the best in the city. Much of co'
the stone used in its construction will be by
taken out of the basement. Stone found of
on the site is a good quality of gray lime- sir
stone. The structure will be 60x100 feet Tb
and will contain three stories, and a large On
basement. w'
The Paul-Vaughn buildings have re- h
cieved the first floor, and eleven carpen
ters and stone masons are pushing the u
Swork. a
A force of six teams and ten men are ha
making rapid headway on the excavation
for the Gibson block. This will be ready
for the stone work in about a week.
The excavation for Ulm's block is alt. d
most completed. Surveyors made the ar
exact location for the stone this morning o
and stone work will be commenced In

Lapeyre Brothers are having some
trouble to find a foundation for their

they have decided to drive piles and im- g
Sbed them in cement, thus securing a solid

Wm. Roberts will soon have a large a
force of men at work on the Park hotel f,
is annex. 'Teams are hauling material for

. walls so heavy that they will support a

stories will be erected at present.

That the Victory is a Strong
Democratic Argument.
Tom Carter is Considerably Puzzled

About it, But Won't Tell.
WAsmnrtoTON, April 7.--In the senate
yesterday Voorhees sent to the clerk's
desk and had read a telegram from
Helena, Mont., stating that the demo
crats had elected their mayor by 30)i
majority, sad that the republicans, wh.,
usually had a majority of whom 400 tai
600, had carried only one ward.
Spooner's comment upon the telegram
was, "That ought to settle it," and I aer's
was, "That is the strongest argment
yet produced on the democratic side."
Carter said it was beyond his compre
hension, while Col. Sanders said he
knew why the result turned out as it did,
but did not propose to give away the se.
cret. A. J. Seligman, who started home
some time ago has unexpectedly turned

The North Carolina Senator Exposes the
Montana Steal.
WASHINOTOw, April 7.-lf the republi
can senators ever were crucified it oc
corred today when Senator Vance of
North Carolina made his speech in be
half of Senators Clark and Maginnls.
Vance opened up with cleverly ar
ranged statement of the facts and law
on which every hearer could understand
-and when that had been done he pour
t ed out the vials of his wrath upon the
malignant majority, who feared not
God, neither regarded man.
With floiend vehemence he insisted that
there was a conspiracy, the ramifications
of which extended from Silver Bow to
to this city, to upset the vote of precinct
84 or any other precinct that stood in the
it way of republican supremacy.
Very skillfully did he depict Sanders
and Powers as fugitives from justice B
s. fleeing to the city of refuge, fleeing from
e the law of Montana; from the writ of its
own judiciary, and Montana, as repre
sented by the two republican candidates,
1. rushed for the sanctuary. The gate was
e open, he said, held open by the president 1
e of the United States, who beckoned them
to hasten onward, breathless, knowing
le the avenger with flaming sword was on
le the letrack. They moved with accelerated
ge spead.
At10:40 a. m. on the 8th of November,
they lthrew themselves within the door
that was held open for Montana to come
into the union.
The flat had gone forth, the republican
contestants would be seated; the Judges
on the other side had come to that conclu
sion. They were not listening to testi
re nony or argument, they were out attend
ol ing to private business. (At that time
li. there were only four senators on the re
iH publican side.)
"Thip thing,' said Senator Vance, ad
ll dressing the other side, "will make you
sicker than it will us. He then warned
the republicans never to say a word about
the suppression of votes in the South, for
if they did democrats would simply need
to say: "Who stole Precinct 84?"
n "You have long lives ahead of you, I
ry hope," said he to Spooner, Teller and
id Hoar, "but you will never live long
ed snough to hear the last ol the stealing of
Precinct 84, and you oughtn't to."
i He briefly showed sn. e republican
Smethoda ii i ontana and in the 6enate
in- paralleled but did not eclipse the duplic
WO ity practiced In the Tilden afair and
ht closed by sayingthatthe democratic party
would have no reason to regret the de
cision which the republicans had already
come to in this case.
