WAnsTaxrow, Sept, 29.-The lavestiga
tion into the chargds preferred against
Postmaster Wheat by Representative
Enloe was continued today and a large
number of witnesses examined. The
most ilportant testimony was given by
Wm. E. Bradley, wjso said he was ac
quainted with Postmaster Wheat; had
never performed any work as clerk in
the house, but had been sworn in as mes
senger. Young Wheat had come to his
house and asked him if he wanted to
make some money. by being sworn in
place of a man who was expected in a
few-days. This man's name was Denney.
He was simpl) to have his name on the
roll, Whist doing the work. Wheat told
him he would not even have to come to
the otece and would receive $5 for his
trouble in being sworn In. This was
early in March. At the end of
March ,he drew something over
sixty-seven dollars, all of which
except h e.turned over to Walter
Wheat. Young Wheat also got Repre
sentative tUswell to endorse his applits.
tion for a place inthe government print
ing ofoee. At the end of April he was
still on the rolls in place of another man
named Hall. Thls tsme he drew $96.67.
In accordance, with the wish of young
Wheat he kept this money for a week.
He then settld with young Wheat. There
was some diaMcson as to what sum he
should keep. Wheat wanted to pay him
$5, al Ie hetonght he should have one

ELraLNDALE, N. D,, Sept. 29.-Mayor
Soefton of the city, who wrote to Jlames J.
Hill, president of the Great Northern
Railway campany, asking that conces
sioen be made in the transportation of
coal for needy settlers, has just received
a copy of a letter sent by Hill to Hon. J.
H. Fletcher, lieutenant governor of South
Dakota, with information that the offer
made to the people of that section will
apply to Dickey county. Mr. Hill says:
"If the communities that will need aid
in getting cheap fuel on our line in the
district you name will make some organ
isation to take charge of the fuel matter,
we will carry their coal free to the ex- I
tent of one thousand tons, or mcrr, if
necessary. We desire, however, to avoid
coming under the inter-state law i
in regard to carrying coal I
for those who can afford
to pay, inasmuch as the law
would compel us to carry for all alike,
and again, our experience in the past in t
such cases has been that many people
who are abundantly able to pay take ad
vantage of such circumstances to get
their own coal hauled for nothing. For
the last year both in North and South
Dakota the matter of fuel, transportation I
of supplies of various kinds and furnish
ing a guaranty on seed wheat have made
the burden unusually heavy on our rail
road, and while we desire to help as far
as we can to alleviate suffering of the
settlers, it is necessary that we should at
the same time protect the company from
any imposition on the part of those who
are not in need."

track perfect. Nelson, the great stallion
from Maine, trotted to beat his own re
cord and the world's stallion record of

owner and driver, C. W. Nelson of Water

Now YonR, Sept. 28.--. G. Dun & t
Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade says: t
Liquidation In nearly all kinds of specu- o
lation comes to disappointment of many, e
in connection with largely increased sup- t
plies of money, and prepares the way for a
healthier trade in alllegitimate branches.
With lower prices there appearsa decided
improvement in exports of products, and
the decrease for the past three weeks is
now only 4.7 per cent., comparing
with last year. Imports are much en
larged by effort to get goods into the
country before the new tariff goes into I
effect, but the current accounts of each
increase are exaggerated; the value of
all imports fur three weeks has been but
I 15) per cent. above last year's record.
Considerable increaseappears in woolens,
lineas, silk and other dry goods, but
there is fair prospect that merchandise
exports will now exceed in value the im
ports for the month. Grain does not
move freely as yet, but exports of cotton
exceeds last year's materially, and pro- I
visions move in large quantities.
Reports from other cities show re
markable activity in all branches of legi
timate trade. The exces of bank clear
ings over those of corresponding weeks
last year, in all citlies outside of New I
York, rises to sixteen per cent for month
thus far, and at western and southwest. -
ern ponts the gain ayerages about twen- I
ty-three per cent. Though money is
very active at most points, and rather
stringent at many, the olasme of,buslness
does not seem to be awhori9 curtailed
thereby, and reports ato ieollbctions are
much more favorable 'thn usual. rteet

General activity prevails in our camp,

satlpn was occasioned by Dr. McCann

Mr. Muller, our county commissioner,

obstructing the county road. A warrant
was Issued and he was arrested and taken
before Jultice Choate, who held him to

$500. The doctor refused to give the
bond and was sent to tie county jail. ie

How Longl O How laong
The report of poor mail sevice betweent
Great Falls, Barker and Nellhart seems
to attract no attention from the officias.
The office has been removed from
Mann's to Barnum's, a distance of one
hundred yards, and the driver of the
stage refuses to stop at Barnum's for
mail. Thus it accumlates at Mann's for
weeks and is passed on to the camps only
when some ranchman or traveler takesit.
This state of affairs is an outrage on the
people of that region. The Titou.N~ has
discarded the use of the mail service to
those points and finds the semi-weekly
train to Monarch more reliable.
nnumenfunl Exursalon. ob
The excursion from Helena Sunday an
was a big success. Over two hundred du
came down from the capital. The train tu
arrived 12:80 and time was allowed to the by
visitors to take lunch. At 2 p. m. the an
train ran down to Black Eagle falls, do
where, through the kindness of Mr. Par- thb
sons, the big blast was delayed for the ii
benefit of the excursionists. Fully two by
thousand people stood on the south bank gr
of the river when the face of the cliff on in
the opposite side was seen to tremble, or
rocks were thrown high In the air and a tat
dense cloud of smoke and dust rolled f1
down the river. The roar of the falls ad
deadened the report of the explosion un
til it was only a dull roar. The face of
the cliff was torn out for about 400 feet
and a large force will be kept busy for ip
over a week clearing the loosened rock mi
away. The blast was put in to make lt
room for the buildings of the Boston &
Montana smelter.
About 45 minutes were spent in view- N
ing the dam and falls, after which the t
train was run down to Ranthow falls. ac
Many of the excursionists hao never seen i
this beautiful fall and were pleased with di
the grandure of the scene. Concerning ,'1
the trip to the spring the correspondent N
of the Independent says: "Next the
train backed up to the Montana smelter Pt
and tiant spring. Forty-five minutes th
was spent there. The spring is a most
wonderful freak of nature. A hundred
bubbles forming a large pool make a ruf
fled scene of laughing water,crystal pure of
and which can be peered into for many
feet. Nothing less than a river of water
flows in hurried, dashing, splashing fall pi
from this spring into the Missouri. Water al
cress flourishes in this crystal pool in s
great quantity, and looking down to the
bottom is seen an endless variety of col
ors. The spring Is a truly wonderfnul at
eight, one that wordns can not properly at
describe. Enough water flows from it
to supplyeven as large a city as New
York. To see this spring alone is worth
a day's journey."
The smelter was visited by many and ci
at times several furnaces were giving
forth their streams of white metal which $
the visitors saw cast into bars of bullion a
of silver and lead.
The train then returned to town where '
the wants of the inner man were again
supplied. During the two hours pent g
in town many of the excursloaste strolled
through the streets and expressed satis- b
faction at the progress shown. At 7
o'clock the train nulled out for Helena
and it is safe to say that a better pleased
party never left thlcapiiel..
General Peeseager A nt Llyl, as
sisted by Traveling r ger A gent
Hubbard, did everything possible to
make the trip pleasant.
