are having plenty of riding to do. Num
bers of cattle are found every day mired
down and one outfit alone is keeping six
men who do nothing but ride the creeks.
The horses in that country are all affected
with a cough, and are running at the nose,
but are all in good order. One of the
peculiarities of this epidemic seems to be
that in some cases horses affected with it
become poor, whereas in other bands the
trouble seems to be purely local, and does
not affect their general condition in any
Drowned in the Missouri.
Independent: General Dodge,chief en
gineer of the Montana Central, last night
received advices from his corps, in the
field near Ulidia on the Missouri river, to
the effect that Horace Marshall, draughts
man, was drowned Monday and his re
mains had not been recovered up to 4 j
o'clock j). m. His wife had been notified
l>v mail. The ill-fated man w as from the
cast. General Dodge says that deceased
was a very worthy and promising young
man, well educated and had risen from
the line to draughtsman in Mr. Farmer's
Storm in Kansas.
Terriffic rain and hail storms prevailed
throughout Kansas on Thursday, doing
great damage to property. A waterspout
in the vicinity of Emporia, overtook a
farmer named Jacobs, who was attempt
ing to flee with his family in a wagon, and
Mrs. Jacobs and her younger child were
drowned. A hailstorm on the line of the
Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railway
broke 44 panes of glass on the Califor
nia express, including all but a solitary
window on the north side. The streets of
many of the towns were flooded, washing
away sidewalks and doing great damage
to buildings.
Another Mine Accident at Butte.
Tuesday afternoon when the 3 o'clock
shift went down to relieve John J. Lyncli
and David McHyland at a crosscut on the
800-foot level in the Lexington mine at
Butt», they found the two men lying side
by side dead, having been killed by the
discharge of a blast. Just how it hap
pened they were there when the shot went
off will never be known as the two un
fortunate men were the only miners work
ing in that vicinity. It is supposed, how
ever, that the charge of giant powder ex
ploded when they were tamping the hole.
A coroner's jury returned a verdict of ac
cidental death.
Geronimo Still at Work.
A Washington dispatch of the 3d says :
The adjutant general has received the fol
lowing dispatch from General Miles, dat
ed Benson, Arizona, April 29th: Con
firmed reports from Calabassas and Noy
ales state that three persons were killed
about ten miles north of the line. Very
serious depredations have been committed
south of the line. In Sonora many per
sons have been killed and many driven
out of the country. Both Mexican and
United States troops have been actively
pursuing the hostiles. As fast as possible
the troops are being placed where they
will be likely to intercept them should
t] . ;iius on tlicil . n ne? an( l WC re not only in
terfer j nR w itli the running of the trains,
they attempt to move north. The bal
ance will keep as close to Geronimo's
camp as possible, wherever they may go.
The difficulty with the Nava joes lias, I
think, been satisfactorily settled and
troops placed in the threatened district.
The Mexicans are reported well disposed
and all at work.
.Strike on the Utah & Northern.
The trouble which lias been brewing
among the Utah & Northern brakemen
since about the first of March culminated
Wednesday night in a general strike along
the road. At Eagle Rock, Idaho, the
chief railroad town between Ogden and
Butte, a meeting of brakemen was held,
at which it appears to have been deier
mined to inaugurate a strike. When the
north-bound passenger traiu reached there
at 10 o'clock the engine was uncoupled
aud the engineer was given an explanation
of the situation and.told to run his train
into the round house, which lie did. The
brakemen refused to take their places ou
tiie train, and the attempt to run it was
for the time abandoned. Later the brake
men agreed not to interfere with the run
ning of the mail and express cars, and
they were sent forward, but the passen
gers remained at Eagle Rock. All freight
traffic was in a few hours suspended all
over the road. The passenger train be
tween Garrison and Butte was run Thurs
day with Conductor West forming the en
tire crew outside the locomotive. Ore and
fuel trains between Anaconda and Butte
are laid up and a general suspension of
traffic is the result. In attempt was made
to run the ore train from the Anaconda
mine but the coupling pins had been
drawn and concealed, and as a consequence
work in the mine was suspended. To add
to the trouble hoodlums had ditched a
lumber train at the depot, completely
blocking the track.
The grievances of which the brakemen
complain and the reasons given for the
strike are as follows: On the first of last
March a general order was issued to pay
conductors, brakemen and baggage men
by the run instead of by the month. A
certain number of miles was to constitute
a day's work and the run on active duty
must be made to entitle them to the pay.
A run on a dead caboose, one not attached
to its regular train, was not counted. This
order created the greatest dissatisfaction
among the employes, especially the brake
men. Their runs were slow, and often
they were sent over a division on a dead
caboose, consuming their time without
pay. Committees were appointed to wait
upon the officials of the road, but got no
redress of their grievances, being put off
without satisfaction. This is understood
to be the primary cause of the strike,
though the disposition may have been
stimulated by the numerous other strikes
all over the country.
Governor Hauser was telegraphed to by
the managers of the road to the effect
that the brakemen had taken possession of
but withholding the mails as well. They
asked if they could expect protection
from the territory. The governor replied
that the laws of the territory are ample to
protect property and would be enforced.
As a result of the strike the great Ana
conda smelter shut down Thursday even
ing, and will probably remain closed for
thirty days, throwing from 500 to 600
men out of work at that place, in addition
to about 200 employed in the mine at
Defrauding a Widow.
Andrew Stevenson, a former clerk of
the probate court of Lewis and Clarke
county, and who was censured by the
grand jury of last year for gross irregular
ities, was arrested iu Helena on Monday
on a warrant charging him with appropri
ating to bis own use $1,300 paid into that
court in March last, to liquidate a judg
ment against the estate of of J. Y. Stew
art, deceased. The complainant, Cathe
rine Stewart, has a fine rancli in that
county, and the $1,300 represented the
last claim against it, a part of which she
was compelled to borrow. The prisoner,
who is the son of a Kentucky ex-governor,
is described as a big, beefy fellow, with
unmitigated gall, and is said to have
thrashed a Helena coirespondent of the
Pioneer Pres3 several months since for
reporting his crooked transactions. He
was arraigned before Judge Armitage on
Tuesday where, after the examination of
several witnesses, the counsel for the de
fense stated that further examination
would be waived, and the prisoner was
held in the sum of $2,000 bail to await
the action of the grand jury.
Elkhorn Mining District.
T. J. Nicholson, one of the leading
spirits of Elhorn, tarried a few moments
at the Sentinel office Thursday morning
en route to Helena. lie is enthusiastic
over the prospects of Elkhorn, and
thinks that this summer will develop
wonders for that camp. He says the
Jim Keene looks better every day, and
that a day or two ago a marvelous
strike was made, the ore of which runs
$300 in silver, with a profitable show
ing of gold. The two prospects adjoin
ing are in good shape and coming to the
front. The Elhorn camp is a fixture,
and bids fair to rival Butte.—Jefferson
