WAdUHtnla ot, Sept. 8.-The Ream in vestigation was resumed today and Lemon was called to the stand. He read a prepared statement, which was to the effect that as first charge did not con. cern him, he had nothing to say; as to the second charge, which referredto him. self, he said he had known Gen. Raum for 20 years. His financial standing.was high, and his endorsers were men of reputation. So when he wanted money to open up his mining property, witness endorsed two of his notes, one for $2,000 and one for $10,000, which were subse quently extended. Respecting the charge that the witness secured undue advan tage from the completed files order, no preference had been shown him. The commiseoner could not favor him if he wanted to. He invited Cooper to visit his office any day and examine every case and every employe. He wanted an open investigation. At the conclusion of the reading of the paper, Cooper cross ex amined the witness. He asked what witness' fortune was, to which witness promptly replied, "that Is none of your business," and he returned the same answer to the next question as to the amount of his annual income. Cooper then returned to the attack by asking if witness had not been charged with forg ing Collfax's name to a certificate. Wit ness replied thathe had not. If that was to be brought Into the case, he wanted to call witnesses. Lemon's testimony hav ing been concluded, Cooper renewed his request for the production of the books of the Refrigerator Co., asserting that they would show that the refrigerator was a fraud and that the Commissioner had been manipulating from the pension office a fraudulent scheme. '"The com mittes would not be doing its fall duty," he said, "if It failed to turn light upon that enterprise." Commissioner Raum said he was pres ent to answer the charge of official mis conduct and had done so completelv. The committee had seen the stock book of the company. He denied that the re frigerator was a fraud. Cooper knew that he had sold no stock to pension office employes. Men who penned lying arti cles knew that they were lying when they wrote them. There was a conspira cy in this city, and Cooper was being used as a tool to break down his (Baum's).credit. The commissioner saw the papers day by day filled with lying articles. Cooper knows that the charges were dismal failures and could not be sustained, and he wished to drag in other things so as by some hocus pocusorhook or crook to injure him (Raum). ie should rest on his legal rights and refuse to have his private business dragged out by Cooper. Cooper insisted on the necessity forthe reproduction of the books as the best proof of the stockholders and declared that the commissioner's testimony had been contradicted by Smyser who had al so told minority members of the commit tee that he had not put a dollar in to stock. Pending decision the com missioners adjourned. Wrecking F.ends at Work. PoUGoHxnErPI, N. Y., Sept.S -A des perate attempt was made tonight to wreck the fast St. Louis and Chicago express which leaves New York on the New York Central at 6 p.m. The train was stopped for a danger signal south of Old Troy, whith is 600 yards south of New Hamburg draw-bridge. Two minutes previous the flag man had discovered several ties standing endwise in a culvert near old Troy and when he took hold of one of them to remove it he was fired up on from the bushes on the east side of the track. Knowing that the fast ex press was nearly due he ran southward and set the danger signal which stopped the train. The flag man said the ties stuck above the rails and would have cer tainly thrown the train from the track. The fast train was composed of seven or eight sleeping cars, all full, two ordinary coaches and a baggge car. Coal Mine on Wite. SCOTTDALE, Pa., Sept..-Fire is raging in the Charlotte mine here.

From County Treasurer McClelland's quarterly report a few interesting facts are learned. During the quarter ending June 1, warrants were drawn on the gen eral fund for $0,916, on the contingent fund for $4,719, on the road fund for $899. 'the balance credited to the poor fund wse $2,166 and Assessor Rice paid into this fund $1,198, while the cost of keeping the poor was $6,189. The gen eral school fund is credited with $1,888, while the total sum credited to the varl ous school districts is $8,474. During this quarter the amount collected from licenses was $9,888.10. At the close of the qnarter the treasurer's balance on hand was $16,178.56. These are only a few facts gleaned from the treasurer's re port, but they show the county finances to be in good condition and well man aged. t The Wheat Tartft. The democratic Great Falls TrlauN. demands that the tariff on wheat be re moved Ia order that the new railroad from Lethbridge may bring Canadian wheat into this state and compel Mon t-na farmers to lower their price. What ha e the MontaU farmers done to th Tatainu that it would subject them to foreign competition? The Great Falls TRacSUe considers the duty on wheat as a delusion, a mockery and a snare. It is Minnesota and Dakota wheat which pours in here duty free tho determines the price of wheat in Mon, tans-not the Canadian wheat rasaed in Manltoba, which is farther of from Mon tans than Dakota.

The Episcopal church was crowded to the doors last night by friends who had gathered to witness the ma.ringe of Miss Laura M. Horst to Newman Whittaker Simmons. The wedding, the Inter-Moun taln says, was among the most notable of the year and had been looked forward to with the most pleasurable anticipations by all the friends of the contracting parties. The hour for the ceremony had been fixed at 8 o'clock and it was but a few minutes past that time when the first notes of the wedding march announced the arrival of the bridal party. The march was up the center isle under the leadership of the ushers, Messrs. Long, Foster, Tucker, Lewis, King and Bropey. Following them camle Miss Frankle Horst, sister of the bride, as mild of honor, attended by the bridesmaids, Miss Laura King of Helena, Miss Martin of St. Louis, and Misses Evans, Bishop and Daly of this city. Immediately after came the bride leaning upon her fathet's arm and the mother escorted by Mr. Julius Horst, uncle of the bride. The bridal party were met at the altar by the groom, supported by his best man, Dr. Winston, and at once fell Into position. The solemn and impressive ceremonial of the Episcopal church was pronounced by Rev. S. 0. Blackiston and was followed with an absorbed attention by all present. Immediately following the ceremony an informal reception was given at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Horst, where the most hearty congratulations were showered upon the happy couple. Few young peo pie start in life together under more fav orable auspices and, if the hopes of friendship weigh, their's will be a happy and prosperous journey. Some slight in dication of the estimation in which these young people are held was given by the presents which were not only almost overwhelming in number, but were un usually tasty in selection and rich in design. PBEPAMIOG FOR THE RAILIOAD. Collertor Rulllran Pays Great alls Visit. Ex-Mayor and Customs Collector Jere Sullivan of Benton, who had an easy time heretofore, is now up to his eyes in busi ness for Uncle Sam. In his mind's eye he sees smugglers crossing the border on the Great Falls & Canada railway laden with diamonds, opium and whiskey. He also sees mentally the olive-eyed Mongo lian coming round by Vancouver and making a flank movement on San Fran cisco and the coast. Some strayed cattle may also take it into their heads to re tern without paying duty and thus de prive Uncle Sam of revenue, thereby causing a deficit. Mr. Sullivan finds himself as much at home here as in Ben ton, where he has resided since the palmy days when Dandy Jim, Curly Dick, Fog Horn Phil, Grovon Juhnnie, Slippery Dick, Seven Up Pete and other noted people flourished there. A New Rtel Estate Firm. Mers. H. O. Chowen and Frank B. 1 Wilcox have joined their fortunes in the t real estate business. Mr. Chowen is one of the oldest timers in Great Falls and has an accurate knowledge of the coun try and real estate values and his judg ment is unexcelled. Mr. Wilcox, while performing the duties of secretary and i manager for the Cataract Mill company, has also had considerable experience in handling real estate. The two gentle men constitute a strong firm and with their knowledge and experience will un doubtedly make a success.They announce yesterday the sale of the swM section 28, township 21 north, range 8 east to E. R. Clingan for $2,00. Theland belongeC to H. J. Skinner. This is a good bargain for both parties. Bishop Brondel Returns. Bishop Brondel was on the train which arrived here yesterday. While at the depot he received hearty congratt. lation on his safe return from Palestine and Rome. He seemed happy at being once more in Montana and was much gratifled on learning that the Catholic t church here is nearly complete. He met with a serious accident in the Holy Land, but even in that remote country he found an Irishman, Dr. O'Malley, who put in place his arm which had been dislocated. 1 At Rome, a military surgeon attended the bishop and declared Or. O'Malley's treatment very skilful. Bishop Brondel spoke warmly in praise of Mr. James J. Hill's gift of $500,000 to found a Catholic college at St. Paul. Upon his arrival at the Great Northern railway staticn in Helena the bishop was met by a number of the parishioners and escorted to his residence on Catholic hill. In the even ing after the meeting of the Catholic Knights and the literary society and a serenade the bishop was to hold a recep tion at the new school house. flow Will lea Vote. The county commissioners spent an. other day in auditing bills. They have also decided to submit the question of bonding the county for $100,000 to a vote of the people at the coming election. If the question is decided favorably the money will be used to purchase the bridge here or build a new one, to build a bridge at Cascade and to provide bridges at other points ln the county. qMoal to Baenlo Bill's thow. Monday afternoon J. P. Dyes brought out a fine young sorrel horse to sell at suction. According to the owner the horse was gentle and reliable, and being a fine looking animal bidders were num erous. J. E. Williams wanted to try the animal. He placed his foot in the stir. rup to mount, but just as he roe.the horse started and J. E.oamedown beosof the saddle. At this the horse commenced to run and buck. For nearly a square the mad bucking continued, but Jack held on and finally secured his place in the saddle. He afterwards rode the horse around the square. When he came back another man attempted to mount the ani mal, but before he was in the saddle the horse commenced to run and the man was thrown, striking on his head and shoulders. He was picked up almost insenslble, his face badly out and bleed tog freely. e revived in a short time sand was found to be only slightly injur ed. The cause of the trouble was sold for $88. While the circus lasted it was exciting and was equal to a regular wild west show. Dr. A.

General Report on the Camp by the Tribune's Special Cor respondent. The Cumberland Building a Large Hoist-The Great Fastern Ship ping Ore to Aurora. [fpecial oorrespondenoe of the Talann.]J WnrrI StLPrcn SpRunss, Sept. 1. From Neihart to this place is the worst piece of road In Montana. The timber, which is very dense, was cut down, leas ing stumps about four inches high and with the loose stones in the road this makes a road in which a vehicle literally strikes "only the high places." Neihait and the Belt mountains mining districts in Meagher county have much cause to complain of unfair treatment at the hands of the Meagher county commissioners. While this road is very bad, the county has built three roads to the Castle dis trict and they are good, all stumps and stones being removed and the bed nicely graded. The Bolt mountains camps should give a united and vigorous kick against this treatment. That kick should take the form of a petlt'on to the legisla ture to have the mining districts annexed to Cascade county, where from the tooog raphy of the country they naturally be long. This treatment by Meagher county has been unjust, unfair and unworthy of the men in charge of the affairs of this county. In point of her mines, their de velopment and the amount of ore on the dumps, the camp of Neihart alone can show more ore than there is on all the dumps of the Castle district. Yet she has been given only a niggardly share of the county improvements. A drive through the Castle mining dis trict has in store for the traveler many surprises. Instead of towering moun tains, rocky cliffs and mines reached only by difficult climbing he finds here a suc cession of rolling hills or mountains,over which good roads are built and it is easy to drive to every mine in the camp. The mines are located in the rolling foothills. The formation and form of the ore de posits is another surprise. Instead of regular rock stratas the country seems to have been pretty well shaken up and the different ore shutes pitch in different directions. The ore is found in beds or pockets of varying size. Some lie near the surface, others are discover ed only after sinking in the lead matter. In other places chimneys of ore are thrown up from one vast bed below. SMITH'S CAMP. In Smith's camp the Silver Bell com pany are using horse power to sink on their property. The Legal Tender has a fine plant of machinery and are develop ing their property extensively. Good ore has been found and a tunnel is now be ing run from the 100-foot level through a large body ofironcarbonate. TheJudge and Alice are also promising properties in this camp. ROBINSON'S caMP is located about three miles south-east of Smith's, and is surrounded by a large number of good prospects. The ildden Treasure and the Castle Cresoent have already shipped some ore. The Little I Dot company are taking out some very fine ore. Frank Fitzpatrick, the super- i intendent, has abundant faith in this promising property. A. Pus, super. intendent of the Cleopatra Mining com pany, reports that a large body of hard carbonate ore war struck last Friday in p the bottom of the 60-foot shaft. At pres- I ent the size of the ore body is unknown but it is very rich. South of Robinson are the Yellowstone, Great Eastern and a number of others. Several freighters are busy hauling ore from the Great Eastern for shipment to the east. CASTLE, The active, bustling mining camp is a lively place. Two hotels, seven saloons, two or three stores and the usual number of other enterprises are found there. Considerable excitement was crested last Saturday by a number of people jumping 40 acres of land just south of the town. Mr. Hensley has been liv ing on the land for several years but two othe. parties claimed It and in order to settle the matter a number of jumpers went down and staked out lots and com. menced building houses thereon. It is reported that 87 lots changed hands last week. Real estate is higher than in Great Falls. The amount of money being invested here shows that there is great faith in this camp. The Cumberland company have 100 men employed and are expend ing between fifty thousand to one hun dred thousand dollars in improvements. The California, $90,000; the Iron Chief, $20,000; and the Great Eastern is ship ping ore to Livingston, paying 40 cents per 100 pounds and thence by rail to Au rora, Illinois, and yet makes good profits. More companies are being worked than ever and nearly every week new com panies are being formed. Two large saw mills are running day and night and can not keep up with the orders, thus caus ing much delay in many of our improve ments. Besides this, a great deal of lumber i. shipped from Livingston and Helena. The Cattle Mining Reporter, published by J. 0.

They were themeal for which the snake was anxiously await ing. He had not tasted meat in four months and his voracious maw yawned like a bottomless pit for the unfortunate trio in the soap box.

The huge boa had coiled himself up in a corner, but at once roused nimself for action. He was fully twelve feet long, and having recently shed his winter coat his skin glistened and shone liko satin. He raised his head a foot or so from the floor and viewed the first course of his quadri. annual meal. The rabbit showed no signs of fear, but rather seemed to enjoy his new quarters. The snake slowly lowered his head and cautiously began to stretch himself along the side of the den. He never once took his eyes off the rabbit, which was still unconscious of his dan. ger. Suddenly the rabbit began to act strangely and to cut all sorts of ridicu lonus capers. Hto would leap hback and forth over the snake and then rub up against it, and appeared to be fascinated. Slowly and stealthily the snake turned his head about until it was within a foot of the rabbit's haunches. Then, quick as a flash, he darted forward, seized the rabbit in his mouth and in another in stant there was nothing to be seen of the little animal save the tips of his ears, which protruded from between the folds of the snake. The huge serpent then raised his head full two feet from the floor, darted out his forked tongue and hissed horribly sit the motley group watching him. If there was any struggle on the part of the rabbit it was not visible. The snake bh-d him in his awful coils. Then the coils slowly, but with a strength which was terrible to look at, began to tighten till every bone in the poor rabbit's body must have been broken. This done the coils relaxed, and the limp, lifeless body of the sportive rabbit of a few moments before lay ready to be swallowed. First the serpent nosed his viotun all over. The eyeballs of the dead rabbit were protrading from their sockets, and by way of beginning the boa licked them with his tongue. Once more he coiled about his victim, leaving its head and shoulders free. Then he opened his monstrous jaws and, taking "bunny's" head therein, began to swallow. Soon the head and shoulders were out of sight, and in less than fifteen minutes the hind legs followed.--Chicago Inter-Ocean. Th Proflte of Authorship. I caught one of our best known au thore in a confidential mood recently, and hie comments on the revenue of au thorship, which he gave me permission afterward to print, carry interest with them. I may add that the name of this author is one of the most widely known in American literature today. "Seven years ago I chose between law and lit erature. I had every opportunity to sc. ceed at the bar, for through hard study and my coanections a lucrative practice seemed open to me. But I turned to authorship. Today Iam what the world calls a seesseful author. My last novel was bid for by three publishers, and my royalties, I am told by my publishers, are higher than those of the majority of their writers. I have the pleasure of hearing my books and name hawked on the trains when I am traveling, the newspapers give me from a quarter of a column to a column and a half reviews. "But what o literature broughtme in money? Let me open my vest pooket to you. . py actual revenue for 188, and includes, as you see, royalties on six of my novels, magasne articles, etc., and everything is collected. Here is the total, $8,170.40. Compare these actual figurse to the paragraph recently circulated in which I am reputed to earn $10,000 from my pen. Is it any wonder that the unsophisticated enter literature with false hopes? Yes, print these facts if you wish; only, of course, withhold my name and identity." I reproduce here the facts and figures as they were given tome. Ionly wish it were pos sible, for the sake of those who think that literature is a bed of roses, to give this author's name.-New York Letter.
