A street car strike is in progress in St. Louis. William Page a leading American artist is dead. The Sherman hotel at Fargo has been destroyed by fire. Ex-Congressman Charles Clayton of San Francisco is dead. Quite a heavy snow storm visited north ern Minnesota last Monday. Mayor Rice of St. Paul has ordered all gambling houses iu that city closed. It is reported that Geronimo, chief of the hostile Apaches, has been killed. Large numbers of murders by Apaches are reported from New Mexico and Ari zona. Five Italians who have been passing counterfeit coin in Washington have been arrested. The little town of Westhood, New Jer sey, was almost destroyed by a cyclone on the 4th inst. An organization called Moonlighters is forcing Irish tenants to take oaths not to pay their rent. No indictments were found by the grand jury against any of the Rock Springs rioters. Small-pox is increasing in Montreal. The daily death rate from the disease runs as high as sixty. Gov. Hoadlcy of Ohio challenged Sena tor Sherman to meet him in joint debate but Sherman declined. A. Tombstone, Arizona, special says: The citizens have created a fund and offer $250 each for Apache scalps. In the stallion race at Cleveland between Harry Wilkes and Phallas the former won in three straight heats: time 2:17}. The president has appointed Jabez L. M. Curry of Virginia to be minister to Spain in place of Mr. Foster, resigned The Earl of Shaftesbury, a great Eng lish philanthropist and also well known as a statesman, is dead at the age of 84 years. R. P. Lynch, a Northern Pacific brake man, fell between the cars of a freight train near Crow Wing, , Minn., and was mangled to death. Civil Service Commissioner Gregory has followed Eaton's lead and resigned Tho man will doubtless do the same. None of the vacancies have been filled. The Mormons have retained Senator Vance of Nortli Carolina, and ex-Senator Francis Kiernan of New York as counsel in the place of Emory Storrs, who lately died. Edward McSweeney, the Irish suspect who worked against Blaine and his "foreign policy" last fall, has been appointed to an inferior position in the San Francisco cus tom house. The treasury department is receiving an increased demand for small currency which is regarded by the officers of that depart ment as a sign of the revival of business in the country. The king of Denmark is having a row with his parliament and his subjects as well because he levied taxes by royal de cree when the parliament had refused to vote the appropriations. The democratic convention of Massa chusetts strongly endorsed President Cleveland and pledged support to the re forms lie is carrying out in every depart ment of the government. An accident occurred on the Canadian Pacific railroad near Kamloops, by which one white man and five Chinese were killed and a number wounded. A cow threw the engine from the track. On the 2nd inst. the stage from San Angelo, Texas, to Abeline was held up by a lone boy of about eignteen years and the mail bags rifled.' Tne passengers, six in number; were not disturbed. The reputed discovery of a lake in northern Canada that was larger than Lake Superior proved to be a common Mun chausen story. The Lake Mistassini is there but it is small as was always known. Marshal Clements, the murderer of his brother and his brother's wife, at Saguache, Colo., was taken from jail by masked men and hanged. Clements had a knife, with, which he cut two of the masked men quite severely. One thousand white and 1,200 Chinese laborers from the Canadian Pacific were paid off in Victoria, B. C., the other day and when they all got drunk and started in to "paint 'er red" they made that sleepy oid town look right wide awake. A Seattle dispath says: Five white men and two Indians who made a mur derous attack on hop pickers in Squak val ley two weeks ago and killed two of the number, have been, indicted by the grand jury for murder in the first degree. Miss Emma Nevada on the occasion of her recent marriage to Dr. Palmer receiv ed telegrams of congratulation from the Prince of Wales, Prince Alexander of Bulgaria, Grand Duke Nicholas of Russia, Ismael Pasha, ex-Khedive of Egypt and others. Hon. Fred Hassaurek, editor and pro prietor of the Cincinnati Volksblatt, died lately in Paris. He was an Austrian rev olutionist of high class and came to this country in 1840. He was a very influen tial republican and was at one time min ister to Equador. Four persons boarded a passenger train near Altoona, Penn., and while three of them intimidated the passengers with weapons the fourth robbed the occupants of the car after one man had been cut and the conductor was badly beaten. All the robbers escaped. The governors of Arizona and New Mexico have agreed to call out the mili tia of both territories agamst the hostile Indians and to work jointly without re gard to territorial boundaries. This is no very flattering commentary on the efficien cy of the regular troops. Two anti-Chinese meetings were held at Seattle on Monday evening. One meeting was addressed in inflamatory speeches that counseled the forcing of Chinese to leave by any means. The other meeting was moderate and depre of letters that had been written to each other. Both were about 30 years of age and the woman had been quite pretty. The let ters indicated that the woman was married but was used very cruelly by lier husband, that she had fallen in love with the man that lay dead beside her, that the feeling had been reciprocated, that their love was without sin and entirely hopeless and so death was resolved upon. He was a prin ter named Bassendorf; the woman was the wife öf Louis Koch a Jersey City editor. Sheep Sale*. As per advertisement 8,000 sheep be longing to Hironymous & Cannon of Big Timber were offered for sale at auction on Thursday afternoon in Livingston. The lot included ewes, lambs and wethers. They were driven from California last year and wintered on the Musselshell. C. P. Blakely was auctioneer. The sales were as follows : T. A. Churchill 1,000 % 2.42} T. A. Brooks 500 @ 2.37} do. 500 2.25 S. L. Davis 1,000 @ 2.25. Another lot was offered and the bids only reached $1.52} when the entire lot was withdraw from sale. Those sold were all ewes and lambs. The sheep were not in very good condition. cated rioting, bloodshed or destruction of property but was firm in the sentiment that "the Chinese must go." A great number of special officers have been ap pointed to prevent rioting. On the 2nd a battery of boilers in Clark & Co.,' Solar Iron works, Pittsburg, ex ploded and scalded seventeen employes, three of them fatally. About half of those injured were boys. After the explosion a terrible scene ensued on the arrival of the wives, mothers and sisters of the injured ones. Franklin J. Moses, at one time the car pet bag governor of South Carolina and who has been the hero of numerous police court as well as political items, will retire from public view fora time. He goes for three years to the state prison of Massa chusetts for obtaining money under false pretenses. f Near Lufkin, Texas, 00 convicts who were working on a railroad grade made a sudden break for liberty.. The guards began emptying repeating rifles into the fleeing mass of men and 25 of them were killed or wounded before they reached the neighboring woods. The other 35 will probably soon be captured. Near Carbon, Wyoming, Frank Brown, a young sheep rancher, committed suicide by shooting. He was a native of Boston, a graduate of Yale and the son of wealthy parents. He had spent most of his time and large sums of money since coming west m the cities of Wyoming and Colora do. Lately his parents shut off his money supplies since when he drank heavier and was despondent. Frederick O. Prince has been nominated by the democrats for the govership of Massachusetts. The remainder of the ticket is as follows: II. H. Gilmore, of Cambridge, lieutenant governor; Jeremiah Crowley, of Lowell, secretary of state; Henry K. Bralcy, of Fall River, attorney general; Henry M. Cross, of Newbury - port, treasurer and receiver; Gen. James E. Delaney, of Holyoke, auditor. All the miners in the Union Pacific coal mines at Carbon, Wyoming, and at at Louisville, Col., Stopped work on the 1st inst., because of the employment of Chinese to the exclusion of whites at Rock Springs. The Union Pacific people say they will close down those mines for the winter and depend for fuel on what is mined by the Chinese at Rock Springs supplemented by importations from the cast and south. The company now has 60 days" supply on hand. Army officials are daily expecting to hear that the goverors of Washington Ter ritory and Oregon have called for federal aid in protecting the Chinese. An out break in the neighborhood of Seattle is regarded as certain to come within a very short time, and of course troops will be required. An officer who returned from the Pacific coast lately says that the ex citement will not abate until hundreds of the hated Mongolians are slain, and he looks upon a speedy race war as inevitable On Friday last the firm of William Heath & Co., brokers of Wall Street, New York, failed being carried down by the failure of Henry N. Smith for whom they were brokers. Smith's liabilities are nearly two million dollars, owed princi pally to Heath <fc Co., assets nominal. Heath & Co.'s liabilities are about $1,800, 000 owed to G. P. Morrosini, Jay Gould and other prominent Wall Street men; as sets small except the claim against Smith. Soutter & Co., have also failed and other smallar failures will probably follow. In compliance with the great powers of Europe, Turkey has agreed to submit to the revolt of Eastern Roumelia and its anexation with Bulgaria. But that does not necessarily put an end to the chances for war. Servia has always been jealous of Bulgaria and now she says she will fight if she is not granted an extension of territory, too. Turkey's Albanian sub jects are reported to be in a state of rebel ion and some fighting is reported. There may yet be sharp fighting in the Balkans before the present disturbance is quieted. The grand jury now sitting in Green River has received some interesting testi mony in regard to the troubles at Rock Springs coal mines. Rev. Timothy Thir loway, a Congregational minister, and his wife and daughter testified that the Chninese told them that they fired their own houses in order to keep the Ameri cans from digging up the money that was under them. The minister saw the Chinese fire at least one house and when the Chinese returned they immediately began digging in the ashes and unearthing money, $6,000 being taken up in one in stance. In Central Park, New York, last Satur day evening a man aud woman both robed in black, was found drawing their last breaths. Each had committed suicide. On the woman's breast lay a lock of the man's hair and on the man's a leaf and a Between them were a lot of love MONTANA NEWS. There was snow in Miles City on the 2nd inst. The Collar mill at Maiden is again in motion. Mrs. Ellen Hubbard has been appointed postmistress at Plains, Missoula county. All the companies stationed at Fort Custer are at present out after raiding Piegan Indians. A man named Nefas was held up by two men on the Bozeman road near Beaver creek last week and relieved of $225. Five thousand head of cattle are now being driven to the Benton & St. Louis Cattle Company's ranch on the Marias. Miss Nannie E. Kelly, daughter of L S. Marshal Robert S. Kelly, was married on Tuesday evening at Deer Lodge to Mr J.D. Joslyn. Some miscreant took a shot through a window at a compositor in the Butte Miner office. The Miner offers $100 for the identification of the shootist. A fire was discovered in Benepe's ware house, Bozeman, on Monday morning but extinguished before much damage was done. It is believed te have been incen diary. On Friday last the falling of a heavy rock and*the derrick to which it was at tached at the new concentrator building at Anaconda killed Joe Mead and injured Driscoll. Independent: Thomas Mackaness, a well-known dealer in cigars, tobacco, fruits, vcgeatbles and fish made an assign ment yesterday to E. W. Toole for the benefit of his creditors. Fred Beckman a herder employed by Powers Bios., and Paddy Carroll hostler for C. J. McNamara of Fort Maginnis were drowned while trying to cross the Missouri in a buggy at Judith Landing. The dead and decomposed body of an unknown man was found on the prairie twelve miles from Terry. As the body was enclosed in winter clothing it is sup posed that death was caused by freezing last winter. Two professional wrestlers started in to give an exhibition at the Deer Lodge rink one evening last week but were ordered by the sheriff to desist when one had choked the other almost to death in order secure a fall. Information is wanted of John Lyen of Ellensburg, M. T., who was in Butte last August where he sold a band of horses and started for home with the money. No tidings of him have since been receiv ed at Ellensburg. Nat G. Hoss, collector for the Butte Inter-Mountain, was held up in that city the other night for $9.35. When robbers will steal newspaper money from a news paper man they are so low down as to de serve lynching on sight. Five cowboys rode into Maiden one day last week, amused themselves by running the town in the orthodox cowboy fashion and refused to be arrested either in town or in their camp on the prairie where they were followed by the officers. Mrs. Hattie Galbraith wife of Lieut. J. S. Galbraith, of Fort Custer, was thrown from a wagon a few days ago by a runaway team and received injuries to her back so serious that the doctors say she mil never again be able to walk. A few days ago in Helena Stephen de Rouge, a young French viscount who some time ago dropped his title, left his luxurious home in Paris to be a missionary among the American Indians, was ordained to the priesthood in the Catholic church by Bishop Brondel. Inter-Mountain: The Granite Moun tain stands at the head of Montana silver producers this year with a bullion record of $688,705 up to September 1.

They belong to the tribe of Sioux at Pine Ridge agency, Da kota, and the object of their visit is to have a friendly talk with their red brethren. On the 28th of September Charles Black, a sheep herder, was found dead on the range at Miller creek near Rosebud. A bullet wound and the position of his rifle showed that in placing his rifle against a sage bush it had been discharged and caused his death which had evidently occurred about four days before the body was found. Chronicle: Frank Esler came from Cooke City Sunday and will return some time this week. He says that sufficient ore is ready to make the run in the smelter, and in ten days expects to begin opera tions. Gasset is daily expecting a Hart feld smelter, described in these columns some time ago. and will soon have his charcoal ready. A man named Lockwood originated a plot to rob the bank of Murray in the Cœur d'Alenes two weeks ago, but a fel low to whom he confided his scheme in formed the bank and Lockwood was given twenty-four hours to cross the range. Lockwood and companions intended to murder Charley Hussey and associates if necessary to the success of the plot. On Satuaday last in Butte Mrs. Dr. Harding was found dead and an autopsy showed that death had resulted from a ruptuie of one of the ventricles of the heart. She was about 54 years of age and had a husband aud two grown children. William Hill an old miner was found dead the same day near the Mountain Chief mine, Butte. His death resulted fröm heart disease intensified by hard drinking. ' Miscegenation Iu Minnesota. St. Paul Globe: Silas N. Black is an Ethiopian who was brought to this city from Albert Lea by a detective, on a warrant sworn out by Martha Ellingson, a Swede girl. Black was arraigned in the muncipal court yesterday, and both parties being willing, said he would mar rv the girl. The court hesitated for a moment, but finally a marriage license was procured and the ceremony was performed. "DIGGING DUSKY DIAMONDS." What is Being an«l to be Done in Our Coat Fields. A representative of the Enterprise on Sunday last visited the Trail Creek coal mines which this paper has watched so closely and hopefully ever since their dis covery. At every visit during the pa: eighteen months an improvement in the appearance of the mines has been readily apparent but no such extensive develop ment and improved showing as at this last visit. The camp is now the home of about fifty persons, including a few of the gentler sex, and the number is increasing daily as the work demands. A large boarding house has been erected, Wm. Nevenhuysen has built a blacksmith shop and the stable room is being enlarged. From the present dump of the Hedges mine a tramway is being graded along the face of the hank from which the cars will be dumped through convenient chutes into the wagons. From where the tunnel strikes the main vein in the Hedges mine the coal has been followed each way—about 100 feet in all. This level is about ten feet wide at the western end where we examined it closely and only the hanging wall is exposed. Before reaching this vein the tunnel cuts across three other coal bodies of from three to four feet in thickness. It is con fidently expected that as the work extends downward these veins will all unite in one great body. They all stand almost perpendicular. Except to merely prospect, nothing has been done below the present working level but this prospecting indi cates the extension of the vein into the bowels of the earth to an indefinable dis tance. From the working level to the surface where the croppings appear plen fully is about ninety feet. Except for a very narrow, soft, sandstone "bone" which is disappearing as the work proceeds the coal is perfectly free from foreign sub stances, burns very readily and, when blasted, comes out in huge chunks that are very slow to crumble. Of course it is certain that when sufficient depth has been attained to escape the decomposing tendencies of the surface water the charac ter of the coal will greatly improve and it will then be as fine a hotly of bitumin ous coal as can be found anywhere; the veins now separated may then be expected to combine and solidify. In the Bvam property immediately ad joining, exactly the same character of coal is found but the main vein has there been disturbed. At the end of the tunnel the indications led upward and, being follow ed a few feet, disclosed a body of coal about twelve to fourteen feet in thickness lying in an almost horizontal position. In the convulsions of nature it had been broken and displaced ; it is very evidently the same vein as that found in the Hedges mine and should occupy the same relative position when prospected downward ; it is also adjoined by narrow vehis as in the Hedges. This horizontal body, apparent ly of great extent, is now being worked. The chamber from which the coal is taken readily fills with bad air and is sup plied by fans from below; it will soon be ventilated by a new tunnel leading di rectly into the chamber. The Mounts property, adjoining the Hedges on the west, is developed by a tunnel that has reached the coal. Geo. V. Morford, as lias been repeatedly stated in these columns, has contracted for the output of the Hedges and Byarn mines and is now taking out about 40 tons per day which is shipped by railroad to terri torial markets from Brisbin and Mountain Side. The daily output will be increased to 75 or 100 tons in a little time. Mr. Marcus Daley superintendent of the great Anaconda mine at Butte and the immense Anaconda smelter at the town of that name was over here last week for the purpose of looking at the coal in this vicinity, particularly that at Trail Creek. The labor difficulties at the Rock Springs mines, upon which he has hitherto de pended for coal and the attitude of the government in tlie matter of wood fuel growing on United States mineral lands has given rise to a serious question in re gard to the fuel supply necessary for the Anaconda works. In fact a shortage is already threatened and, in view of the continuance of the labor controversies at the Union Pacifie coal mines and the probability that they will be closed down all winter, may be realized very soon un less a supply be obtained elsewhere. Mr. Daley examined the Trail Creek coal and pronounced it good —equal to tlie Rock Springs article for his purpose so.far as he could judge from appearance ; all the other Montana coal that lie has tried worked unsatisfactorily in open furnaces from the fact that it formed a crust on top and contained foreign matter. Mr. Mor ford has shipped a car load to Anaconda for a working test and if it proves satis factorily a contract will be made that will require an enormous daily output to fill. Trail Creek will, in that event, immediate ly become almost or quite as populous a camp as Timbcrilne now is. Mr. Victor E. Tull, who, in the interest of Pacific Coast parties has bonded the Williams coal lands just west of town, is now preparing to thoroughly prospeot the ground and develop it. He now has bor ing and other necessary machinery and implements 011 the way with which to begin work. No coal will be mined f<r market; the work will be exclusively for purposes of development. Accident to John Robinson's Circus Train. On Sunday morning last about 3 o'cloc k John Robinson's circus train in two sections was running on the Nortliorn Pacific branch from Walipeton, Dakota, to Fergus Falls, Minnesota. At a point about seven miles west of Fergus Falls when going up a heavy grade the first section broke in two aud began running back down the grade toward the rear sec tion at a speed of forty miles an hour. Three of the loose cars were occupied for sleeping purposes by about 200 circus employes who were sound asleep. The brakemen on the wild cars tried to put on brakes but could not make much progress owing to the difficulty of running over the cars that were loaded with wagons and other such freight. The train watch man, in the employ of the circus, did his best to arouse the sleeping men and while thus trying to attend to his duty was killed aud frightfully mangled, his heart being found on top of a flat car, his bow els some distance away and his body cut in pieces. When the loose cars had run backward about a mile they crashed into the engine of the rear section and made a frightful wreck. Over a hundred men who were still in the sleeping cars were buried in the wreck. In the darkness a fearful seene resulted. The air was filled with appalling shrieks and groans from the wounded and imprisoned men. When the wreck was cleared away five men were found dead and fearfully mangled beside a large number who were wounded. The names of the dead, who were all circusmen, were Roberts, Krause, Blair Wallace, all eanvassmen, and James Wil son, tlie watchman James Eçcles, one of the wounded, is expected to die. Tlie wounded were all taken to the Northern Pacific hospital at Brainerd. Tlie animals of the menagerie in their cages were on the rear section of the train and do appear to have been hurt. The engineer and fireman jumped and saved their lives. The Three Forks Races. C'hroniele: The races at Three Forks came off on Tuesday, September 29th. First race for purse saddle horse, entered, A. Harrison's chestnut sorrel, W. A. Har wood's sorrel George and A. M. Parker's Bally, one.-fourth mile, won by A. Harri son's chestnut by a length. Second race, one-fourth mile, A. Harri son's Sappo and Harwood's Harry Bluff. Harry Bluff won with ease. Third race, 700 yards, between A. M. Parker's Humpy and W. D. Randall's Councilman, the horses run about even until within forty yards of outcome, when Randall's horse run off the track and behind the judges which gave the race to Parker's Humpy. On Thursday October 1st, there was two races, first betweer Parker's Humpy and Randall's two-year-old colt, Captain, which was won by Captain. Second race, between Bill Reed's cele brated Mandy, Callaghan's Sorrel Mike and a gray horse of A. Harrison's. Sorrel Mike won by a length. Publication Notes. The Century Magazine for October is largely devoted to Grant literature. Gen. Porter relates stories of "Lineoln and Grant"; Gen. Wilson gives "Remin iscences of General Grant"; Gen. Badeau details an account of "The Last Days of General Grant" and the war papers are largely devoted to the operations of the same great hero as are two of the poems. The frontispiece is a portrait of the famous editor of the Springfield Republican, Samuel Bowles, and Col. Merriam's paper on "Independent Jour nalism" is mostly devoted to that man, his methods and his paper. Principal Grant of Canada contributes an article on the Canadian Pacific railway. The number is profusely illustrated. Cen tury Co., New Y ork, or local newsdeal ers. The Overland Monthly for October contains the first part of a series of arti cl&s by Prof. Ilittell on Gov. Alvarado of California, the Mexican ruler of that country during the transition period. It is of great historical interest. A thoughtful paper by ('. T. Hopkins pro poses changes in the federal constitution and arguas strongly for them. "The Rancheria Affair" is a contribution to California history. "Brindle and Others" is a humorous and lifelike sketch. The Overland while not as strong as the eastern magazines fills a big place in Pacific coast periodicals and could not be spared. 120 Sutter St., San Francisco. Herd of Elk Sold. Among the novelities of western life, there are few which can excel, as a bus iness transaction, one which is reported to-day. Sales of real estate, of millions of acres of land, of herds of cattle, horses, sheep, etc., have been made from time to time, says the Laramie Boom erang, but Mr. W. C. Wilson, Sr., has capped the climax by making a sale of a herd of elk, including three bulls, two stags, three cows and two calves. The purchaser of these elk is Mr. D. H. Tal bot, of Sioux City, Iowa, to whom the outfit will be shipped inside of two or three days.
