A TRIBUNI representative made 'the
rounds" Tuesmay on the went siede and
found much activity at nearly every point
visited. The Great Falls & Canada con
tractors are pushing work in every direc.
tion. At their terminal grounds, near
the stockyardq, they are completing a
large depot arihave the section house,
tank and sodr4 other houses finished.
Several swltche~ have also been put in
and graders ade ow doing the prepara

The compast as acquired title to 100
acres at that t for terminal grounds
and from thl e forward it will be the
scene of u.vity. About 15 miles
of track haver laid and the grade is
being ener e ly pushed at all points.
The Sun riv bridg6 will be complet

The foreman Wormed us that he expects e
to have the bri.ge ready to cross teams I
next Tuesday. It is a massive structure I
and looks as if it might last a 100 years I
or more.
In the Great Northern yards every
:rack seemed to be crowded with cars and
the yard masted and his crew were busy
switching theml from place to place. The
enormous trafme of the railroad at Great
Falls is shown by the crowded condition I
of the extensive yards on both sides of
the river.
As we drove along a locomotive and
several cars passed by with material for
the big dam, where a large force of men
is now employed, both at the dam and

The following sensational Salt Lake bl
city dispatch to the Chicago Herald re- tb
lates to Miss Wellington, who formerly P
lived here, where her mother for a time
conducted the Minneapolis house:
SALT LAaa , May 9.-Henry Hofheim
er, agent of the Annheuser-Busch Brew
ing Association, was arrested last night at
the instigation of Mrs. Wellington, on a
charge of abducting Miss Myrtle Well
ington. Hoffheimer has been paying at
tention to Miss Wellington until two
weeks ago, when he was dented admit
tance to the Wellington home by the
mother of the young lady and Clarence
Eberly, a companion of Hoffhemer's,
then began waiting upon Miss Welling
ton. The mother grew susptcious and
more vigilant, but one night last week
Eberly drove up to the Wellington house
in a closed cab and the fair Myrtle, in
loose fitting attire, without hat, wraps or
gloves, fled with the friend of her lover.
Two detectives and the entire police force
have been searching for the young lady
ever since but have not found her. Hofe
helmer was held in the sum of $1,000 and
Eberly in $600. The defendants claim
it is a blackmailing scheme, but the pros
omuting attorney is confident that he has
a case against the two men.
Chalging the Land Law.
Washington special to theIndependent:
An important change has been made in
the homestead and pre-emption laws by
the senate committee on public lands.
The claimant cannot commute unless he
has occupied the land 80 months instead
of six, as provided for under the present
laws. This will prevent a large amount
of land from being taken and commuted
to six months for speculative purposes.

effect a tauif of Lake and rail rates from
Buffalo to St. Paul via Chicago on the
same basis that is used by the Lake Su
perior lines by way of Duluth. This
equalization applies only from Bufftalo
and not from the seaboard, but unless
trunk lines discriminate in favor of Lake
Superior rates it will enable Chicago and
St. Paul roads to compete with the Great

York and Boston to the northwest.
A Treasurer who Is Bhort
KaANsA CITY, May 20.-City Treasurer
Peake was suspended from office at 6
o'clock. A shortage of between p$2,000
and $25,000 having been discovered in his
accounts. Peaks was elected to office
two years ago and was re-elected this
spring. It is customary upon the instal
lation of a new city council to appoint a
committee to qeamine into the condition
of the financial department of the city.
Thereupon when a committee was ap
pointed to examine Peake's books no
surprise was occasioned until it was no
ticed that the treasurer was devoting an
extraordinary amount of time over his
books and was also calling in many of
his personal loans. This occasioned a
rumor that all was not right in his office.
To determine what basis there might be
for the rumor Mayor Holmes and Comp
troller Hobbs today made a hasty invea
tigation into the treasurer's accounts.
The investigation occulpied the entire day.
At 8:80 o clock Peaks was sunmmoned to
appear before the mayor ad comptroller.
The interview lasted an hour. When it
was over the mayor told the reporters the
