Yesterdlay afternoon a colored man mne running .into D)r. Gelethorpe's ,ie saving that Walter Clark had taken 1,,rphine and was dying. The doctor at men,., went to his room on Third avenue ,ueth and Fourth street and found him in a perilous condition. Vigorous rub bing, battery and other remedies brought him out safely. Walter. it will ie remembered, was and possibly is vet a lover of Mabel HeadriJ He languished in jail for awhile. tfiely he has been ill with what the doctor termed a bilioul fever. He refused to talk the matter over and whether he did take the morphine or not could not be definitely told although the symptoms were very like it. The cause was probably despon dency. Circulars warning at tanoring men to avoid Sand Coulee until labor troubles were over were distributed quite freely around the city yesterday. As might be expected these have resulted from a strike now on in the camp. Monday afternoon a committee of the "loaders" waited on Superintendent Burrill and demanded that their wages be raised from 82.50 to 3.00 per day. The de mand was refused and yesterday morn ing a strike was inaugurated. Both parties are said to be determined but it is not thought that the strike will last lneg. About half the force, nearly 150 men are out. Others however are still working. At the meeting of the North Montana Fair association, held yesterday after noon at the office of J. K. Clark & Co., the following were chosen to compose the board of directors: it. Vaughn, J. florst, John Renner, T. Gibson, E. G. Maclay, Ira Myers, Dr. Crutcher, D. H. Churchill, andT. L. Collins. The meet ing then adjourned until 4 o'clock this afternoon, when officers will be elected and other business transacted. The Neihart branch has now been formally turned over to the railroad and trains are funning. These leave at the same hours as formerly. On Monday and Friday the train runs to Barker and to Neihart on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. A gentlemen named Woodhous was brought in from Monarch Monday even trg. lie was ill and was taken to the hields' residence on Fifth avenue. T)r. Ferguson was called but the man died before medical assistance arrived. Parties coming in on the Great Falls a Canada Monday night say that near Co'llins station another big prairie fire was started. It gained such headway that the flames could be seen long after the- train had left. A man named William Edwards fell from a platform at the Butte & Montana Mlonday afternoon and broke his arm.

Bouscaren; vice-president, John J. Ellis; secretary and treasurer, J. K. Clark. The purpose of this company is to turn the waters of Hound creek and tributaries into Laura and thus form a large natural reservoir which shall be used to irrigate the rich Chestnut valley and the large tract of lad lyinag between Deep creek and the Missouri. THE TALE OF TOLL IM TOLD. For the Bridge now Stands Open.-An other Park for the City. 'Tuesday afternoon the board of com missioners authorized warrants to be drawn to pay for the wagon bridge and for the courthouse site. Accordingly Joe Hluston without a shake or shiver prepared for treasurer McLellan two dainty little missives, requesting him to pay to the Townsite company, 84.5,00 and $20,000, and treasurer McLellan wrote the biggest check of his life, one for 85,(000. Then the bridge was thrown open, the hour being a little beyond: four p. n. The wagon bridge across the Missouri was built in 18M8. In the spring, the contract was let to W. P. Loberg. He i was afterwards relieved of his responsi bility by the Townsite company, who finished the bridge themselves the same fall. Its completion was quite an event for the then straggling little village. which, at that time had abundance of falls, but, little to suggest greatness. Indeed, a &i8,000 bridge seenm.d any thing but a necessity, and only a wise foresightedness and a boundless confi dence, since proven justifiable, could have inspired its founders. To these, the bridge, one of the best, it not best, that crosses the Missouri, now stands a monument. The court house site is described in the deed as block 2'Tl, and is situated north of the T'l'neun building. It cost the county $20,00), but it will doubtless prove an excellent bargain. The com missioners will propose to the city coun cil to at once begin grading, intending for their part, to bear half the expenses. It is then, more than likely, that the block will be turned into a park, with trees and perhaps, a fountain or two. This would seem exactly the right thing to do, the location for the purpose being ex ellent. About thie Iurllatnn. A. C. Sheldon, the gentlemanly repre sentative of the Burlington in Montana, is at the Park hotel. It is his first visit since something overa year ago. Speak ing to a TRmtr'Ns reporter he said: "It is my first visit since over a year ago, and to say that I am astonished states it but mildly. I only intended to stay a day, but I first saw the big Bach-Cory build ing, then the Tod, the Townsite, andi the Cory. Then I strolled around and ran across the opera house and drove out to the smelter. It changed my mind and I said I would stay another day. I have been all over the state and have seen no city with such a metropolitan air as (;reat Falls. "When I heard that our engineers were within fifteen milesof town it made mne feel good.

That assertion is incorrect anti we hope you will accord us space in your paper for a correct version of the present trouble. All miners and laborers are united in their efforts to gain a fair day's pay for a fair day's work in this camp and min era, loaders and laborers all agree that they consider $3 per day none too high wages for any man working in the coal imine.

Found Dead in His Itnan with a GIhatly iullet Ilie Jlust lie A man ihasi ,suicidetd at lit Park Hlotel. That was lIth rmi,,r which gained credence by frelquenti, repetition on the streets at at a early hour Tuesday evening. "Who was he':" asked a startled or curious publit. WhUen dil it hlappen? Why did he do soA: And all of these questions save one was easily answered. On Friday last Frederick S. Fish registered at the Park from Helena. To friends in the city he was known as a young attorney of most excellent habits, prosperous in business and well fixed in the good things of the world. His in tention on his arrival was to settle in the city with which he was more than pleased. He seemed to be feeling cheer ful and not in the least downhearted. Business arrangements were already in course of completion. On Monday even ing for the first time he appeared just a trifle downhearted saying that he was nervous and feared that a general break ing down would compel him to take a long vacation. He retired Monday night and rose again Tuesday morning. From this time no one seems to remember anything regarding him. The chambermaid saw him go into his room at about nine in the morning after which he was never seen alive. Business went on about the hotel and poor Fish was forgotten for the time. Perfect stillness reigned in his room. He had an engagement to meet a friend in the morning which of course he failed to keep. Between three and four thais gentleman came to the hotel. He went to the room and knocked but no answer came. And then curiosity mingled with alarm became rife at his long silence. The door was locked with the key in side. Charles Mix, the porter, climbed around the root and entered a window. And then came the solution to his long silence. The man was dead. Dr. Sweat was called and at once re sponded, but Frederick Fish was gone beyond all hope. Ily this time it was About i( o'clock the coroner, Dr. Ladd, arrived and the chamber of death was again entered. In the bed with the covers drawn tightly up to his chin lay all that was mortal of the young attor ney. The face already bore the pallor of death and looked yet more pale behind a blonde mustache. The covers were turned down and the body found to be clothed in under wear and shirt, outer garments having been removed. The right hand crossed over the breast was rigid and thec left lay extended upward by the left side. lielow this hand, muzzhli pointing upI ward, was tlihe instrluml nt of (hdath. double-action nSmith & Wesson.

Ilitlu appeaired for Ith delfendallnt illand Assistant ' nited StateH District At torneiy Mcl)onald for the governmnlllt. Q. (.arr was first called to the stand. IIis story,told. as it was, in a hulting.hesi tating manner, is yet one of the most marvelous and dramatic in criminal his tory. It reveals a most wonderfully in genious plan, carefully prepared and ap parently succeeding, only to be frus trated by a stout attack of the arch enemy of evil--conscience. In sub stance he told his tale as follows: Some time about the early part of Sep tember he called at the Barnum resi dence. Naturally the subject of the for mer mail robberies and the consequent trouble they brought on Mrs. Barnum and Ed came up. He (Garr) told Ed that some way should be contrived to relieve Mrs. Barnum, even though the son took on his own shoulders the blame, and thus relieved his mother. One word brought on another until finally it was suggested that Ed go to some coulee and cache a package under a rock which should afterward be found. Ed Barnum wanted (arr to come and dis cover this, then to come to to this city and raise a great excitement regarding it. To this Garr demurred for personal reasons. Later Johnson was taken into the scheme, which in its perfected state was thus arranged. John son and (Carr were to go antelope hunt ing. After a time they were to stroll up to a place formerly agreed upon, where Barnum was to be seen secreting a pack age under a rock. After he left they were to go and discover it and then were to spread abroad the news that they had seen a man sorting letters under a rock. Of this individual they were to give such a description as should identify him with the mysterious stranger who stayed at the Barnum home the night of the rob bery, and from whom, Mrs. Barnum claims to have received the decoy e2 sent by the government and found in a roll of her money. And even yet the plot was not complete. To further divert sus picion they were to say that this find oc curred on September Nth,thoughit really took place on the 13th. as on the eighth Ed Barnum had gone to a dance some distance away, giving that gentleman an easy opportunity to prove an alibi. It was a most ingenIOUs Bsceme ani worked out perfectly. Everyone be lieved it. Ed. Barnum paid G(arr 88. and of this Garr gave Johnson 845. But difllcuiltiies arose. In the first place when (Garr and Johnson exam.ined the contents of this Ilysterious cache they found a paciknge of letters hearing dates if the 4Ithl and 5)th if 4Slptitber. h'ilis was unllexpeclted and frilhteneid both sit that they \wnt away unII left the letters.

Of him as with niany others befiore c'nscience had made a coward. In sp.ctor Sackett called on him and listened to the same story. A few keen questions sioon made himn think that something lay behind it all and he strongly advised Mr. Garr to cease his evasive policy and tell the truth as else hie might fare badly. Thlie torments of fear were thus added to the agony of conscience. lHe deternmined to ntakfe . iean breast of it lt tll and did.

About twenty minutes later the two met Barnum in the same coulee anti money arrangements were made. He testified to receiving 8hiO, and when asked why he took it and then gave Ed Barnum away said that "bhe needed the money in his business" The date on which this all took place was the 27th of September and this he was sure of because of a memorandum he kept.

PaUL, Nov. 5.-- A Butte special to Pioneer Press says: The inquest on the bodies of the nine men killed in the disaster in the shaft of the Anaconda mine on Tuesday night was finished to clay. The testimony showed that there were 21 men on the cage when it came up the shaft, ten on the ti upper and eleven on the lower deck of the cage. Orders are that not over nine men shall ride on one deck at a time. But this is constant ly violated. The guides in which the cage slides had been examined and repaired whenever necessary only a few days prior to the accident. The foreman on duty at the time testified he examined the shaft after the accident and thought O'Donnell who was on the upper deck must have fallen against the wall of the shaft. ills body was squeezedl between the wall and the deck of tlhe cage and fell against the men on the lower deck crushing them off. One of the guides was broken by the body passing between the timbers and the cage pressing it sideways. The men frequently have been cautioned against Imore than nine riding on each deck of the cage but twelve have frequently ridden safely. The state nur.e inspector testified he had come out on the cage slowly exanmining the timbers and guides all the way and found all in good condition. The jury rendered ver dict to the foregoing effect and exonerat ing the company froum all blame. Forty Yeart for Clark. Sr. P.\tr..
