Green, volving the right to the possession of the Headquarters hotel at Billings, was con eluded on Friday evening last before Jus tice Mathcson of Billings and a verdict for plaintiff returned. This remarkable suit was instituted in June and lias been dragging along ever since. Three juries t disagreed and on the last trial the whole county was scoured to secure a panel The assessed costs in the four trials said to have reached the sum of $1,500 The value of the property the possession of which was involved is about $15,000 and the case is probably the most impor ant and interesting that has ever come be fore a justice of the peace in Monona The railroad company is now in possession of the hotel And in this connection a remarkable fact presents itsclt. Justice Matheson in the four trials of the case spent twelve or fifteen days in actual service on the bench beside performing a large amount of office work in connection with the casts. For this expenditure of time and labor he entitled to the munificent sum of $6 and no more. Among other laws made by last winter's legislature was one which pro vides that the total fees of a justice of the peace for conducting a case, civil or erim inal, to final judgment shall in no instance exceed the sum of six dollars. We'havi no patience to comment upon such a law and yet we presume it must be borne until the people get a chance to elect a body of men who may be trusted with law-making power. A Brave Deed. Phillipsburg correspondent of the Butte Inter-Mountain : Jaraes Patten, the lessee of the Speckled Trout miue, while stretch ed out on the ore dump lazily and satisfac torily viewing a pile of sacked ore, many thousand dollars in value, had his attention momentarily attracted to a crackling noise in a building behind him. Glancing up he saw that the entire west end of the hoisting works were on fire. Without a moment's hesitation lie dashed into the building and gathering lip an armful of giant powder, quickly placing it out of danger he ran back to the trap in the man way of the three-compartment shaft, and soon was rapidly descending into the lower working levels. At the 250-foot station two men were at work. Bidding them to come out at once, he started back with them up the shaft. Through dense black smoke the almost smothered men pushed their way. Ouce or twice the men halted, thinking it safer to return below, but telling them that to go back as sure death was an inducement for a renewed effort. Almost stifled, the three men opened the trap door and jumped out on the hoist floor. All around them was on fire. Looking up, the huge gal lows frame was seen to totter. A leap through the burning doorway, and as the exhausted men came out into safety and sunshine, a dull, sullen crash of timbers bespoke the awful death they had just es caped. To Rescue Riel. Fort Benton special to Pioneer Press: There have been many queries of late regarding the continuous stay in this icinity of Dumont and Dumais, lately of the Northwest territory. Since their enforced absence from their native soil they have, it was understood, been try ing to make arrangements with the ... 0 to make arrangements with the authorities at Washington for a tract of land for their half-breed brethren. These noted rebels have had the sympathy and active assistance of the cowboys and others of kindred spirit and to-day it is rumored that Dumont's real mission here is to organize a force of dare-devils, make a dash on Regina, stir up the natives and return under the leadership no less a personage than their former chief, Riel. It is no great distance from the boundary line to Regina, and police force guarding the rebel the leader is said to consist of only half a hundred mounted police, while Dumont, so the story goes, has been promised the co-operation of twice that number of men.
