Tack Lambert Narrates a Thrilling Kxperience in a Nevada Min lag Camp. HE HAD A VERY CLOSE SHAVE. Surprised by a Party of Vigilantes Who Were In Search of Horse Thieves. The Vigilantes Succeeded In Finding bix la the Room in Which he Was Sleeping. "Talk of being frightened, shivering in your boots, thinking your time had come, etc., reminds me of a close call I once had in a Nevada mining camp," said Tuck Lambert, to a group of bystanders In the office of the Milwaukee house. "I never experienced anything like it before or since, and if you fellows want to hear a stirring yarn just keep still a few minutes. It was back in '89 when the mining fever was at its height In that state, and "stampedes" to newly discov ered districts were common occurences. Hard characters were quite numerous and shooting affrays frequently made things interesting. Of course, everybody packed a "gun" and was always ready to shoot oa short notice. I was on the way to White Pine and stopped off at a little town called Humboldt, to spend the night. Every thing in the shape of a hotel or a lodging house was Jammed full,and I began to think I'would have to sit up all night, when I struck a place where the landlord said I could spread my bed on the office floor. Every body carried his blankets in those days, few hotels furnished transients with any thing but grub and a floor to spread on. The office floor was pretty well covered with sleeping men when I turned in there must have been thirty of us in all. About midnight we were suddenly awakened by a terrible knocking on the door leading outside. It was a quick yet loud knock,a regular panel splinterer, the kind a man makes when he has blood in his eye and goes a gunning. The but end of a six shooter thumping s door makes a similar sound and I guess we all concluded that's what it was ror none of us resnonded. The door ws ror none or us responded. The door was nearly shivered to pieces when the land lord came out of his bedroon and stumb ling over three or four of his "guests" got to the d(or and asked, "who's there?" "none your - - business, open up quick you -- -," was the reply. It is hardly necessary to my Lie willingly compied, and about a dosen massed and armed men lead by a big man with a dark lantern entered. "Throw up your hand," said the leader, to the badly frightened landlord, "and if you move ou're a goner," and you bet he did. hile one attended mine host the rest of the invaders made a careful canvass of the sleepers, holding a dark lantern in the face of each to make sure of his features. "Get up you -" or "Lay still you -," they greeted each one of us till six scared men stood up waiting in response to the fearful sum mons. When they came to me the cold chills crept up and down my spine and I mentally prepared myself for the worst. I have fared death in several diferent ways but never felt the terrible weak ness that overspread me at that moment. If they had asked me my name I don't think I could have told, owing to my fright. After a hurried acrunlty of my features I was told in language not the most polite to lay still,I wasn't wanted,and these were the sweetest words ever addressed to me. Suffice it to say the six men selected were taken out and hanged to the near est tree in true vigilante style for steal log horses a few days previous. We all came near attendIng a necktie party that night, and you het we felt very thank ful the next day. There were enough of us to have stood of those fellows if they hadn't got the drop on us, but after it was all over we compared notes and agreed that discretion is the better part of valor. Now, boysI have been giving jot. straight goods. Don't look skeptial. Here Quail broke In with, "Lets play a game of rasrle dazzle," and the audience adjourned. Miss Laura 5. Melatyre, :.

On the Willmar & SIoux Falls road, from Willmar to the South Dakota state line, the earnings were $129,597.48, on which j. the tax was $1.295.97. Y The Davis Will Case. HELENA, Feb. 18.-LSpecial to the TRI uNE.}-Another phase in the Davis will case was brought up in the supreme a court yesterday. James W. Murphy of Butte, who is public administrator for Silver Bow county, thought that the dis tract court bad exceeded its jurisdition when it appointed James A. Talbot spe cial administrator of the state and fixing his bonds at $8,000,000. Murphy assed the supreme court to review the action of the district court. Associate Justice De Witt delivered the opinion yesterday, the other judges concurring, in which it is t held that the district court exercised a i judicial discretion of which no abuse is i shown.

The police have been successful In n nipping In the bed the operations of a b trio of of very clever and enterprising h "con" men, who had secured commod lnes quarters in the Webb block, corner Third street and Hennepin avenue, and who were just getting down to work when their plans were discovered. The three geniuses who were thus ruthlessly interfered with had a little session with .Supt. Hendersoneand are now en route to fresher dields.DThey gave their names a. Charles Reed, Gus Williams and William Davis. These are probably Actitious names, although it is thought Reed is tn the true name of one of the members of he triumvirate. They arrived In Minnespolis about a week ago, and, after furnishing up apart ments, advertised in the local papers to this efect: "Wanted-Men, to whom we will give an easy birth and easy pay." Peopie who are looking for this sort of a snap were asked to call at the offices in the Webb block. As the result showed, there were a good many men with an eye open for this sort of a thing. The sharpers' offices were a very popular place. The superintendent of police de tailed Detectives Howard and Doyle to look after the matter. They found the offices filled along. The three men were at their posts, pleasantly receiving their prospective visitors and explaining in detail the modus operands. They were a plausible set. They seemed to be constantly on the alert, however evidently fearing the authorities would soon get "onto their racket." The plan was to represent themselves as represent ang moneyed men in Montana who were anxious to get control of certain valuable government timber land. The idea was to have the victims act as mediums through which the land could be secured. All they wanted of visitors was $25 each. This would be sent, so the swindlers rep resented, to certain parties in Montana, and would go to defraying the expense of making the tiling, etc., upon the property which was not only described, but upon which an estimate was given as to the amount of timber on the land. Then the victim or middleman, so the sharks represented, was to be taken on to Mon tana, and shown the land. He was th n to be furnished with $400 with which to "prove up" on the land. When I this was done parties would ccme to the front and pay the middle man $S00aas a premium and take the land' Gauzy as f this scheme would appear, there were a good many who were seriously consider lng the plan. It is supposed several victims were secured, but they could not be found. In the absence of straight and positive evidence such as would come from an actual transaction, it was impos sible to prosecute the gang. The de tectives brought the men down to police headquarters yesterday afternoon. In a private conversation with Supt. Hender son, Reed prsctically admitted the whole scheme. The men were given until 5 o'clock to get out of the city. They Im proved the chance, and were seen of by the oficers. They had evidently come to stay. They had an immense amount of baggage-so extensive that it looked like a theatrical troupe's outfit.-Ploneer Press. Mialag Divideads.
