Dr. Morrison Munford, editor of the Kansas City Times, and two other per sons were shot on Monday by W. A. Carlisle, an attorney of that city. Dr. Munford had entered a street car when Carlisle went to the platform of the car and drawing a revolver said to him, 'You have traduced my wife and I will kill you," and at the same time com menced shooting. The first ball struck Munford in the side, the second passed through his coat, striking Miss Jennie Streetor, a 16-year-old girl. Carlisle then stepped to the side of the car and com menced firing through the windows, one ball striking a passenger named John Hale in the face. None of the vic tims were fatally injured.

The incorporators of the Bismarck & Southern railroad held a meeting m Min neapolis on Monday and elected officers. The general manager, O. P. Bowe, states that a survey will be started in a very few days from Bismarck via Aberdeen to W r a tertown, Dakota. The line will connect with the Northern Pacific, Milwaukee, Northwestern and Rock Island systems. New Northwest: SuperintendentBlick ensderfer was at Garrison Tuesday en deavoring to secure 20,000 standard gauge ties from the Northern Pacific to expedite the work of widening the gauge, the U. P. not having as many ready tor delivery as they could use. The track is laid to both gauges from Stuart nearly to Silver Bow, and it is intended to have the line ready for the Northern Pacific cars to run to Butte on August 1st. River Press: Mr. Paris Gibson returned to Great Falls from Helena Sunday. He brings back word that if the Northern Pa cific does not come to terms on the trans portation of material, Mr. Hill will push the Montana Northern to a speedy com pletion and commence building the track from the Canadian Pacific this way. This is one way to defeat the obstructionists, but the better plan would be to ship the rails from Fort Buford to Benton by river. A corps of engineers under the direc tion of Alexander McKenzie of Bismarck has started out to survey a line from that city to Fort Buford, at the confluence of the Missouri and Yellowstone rivers. This is said to be a scheme to head off a com bination between the Milwaukee & St. Paul and the Manitoba, a project which contemplates a connection between the main line of the Milwaukee system in western Dakota and the eastern extension of the Manitoba at Buford. Chief Engineer Rogers, of the Canadian Pacific, who discovered the celebrated Kicking Horse Pass on that road, has been at Butte the past w*eck with his nephew, and apparently seeking a pass through the Rockies between Butte and Helena. Much of his time was spent in the mountains towards Boulder and Hel ena. It is said that he is uou-communi cative, in fact studiously reticent, but it is accepted as a fact that the railroad route is being looked out for sharply by the Montana Central-Manitoba-Canadian Pacific combination. the on an of been the about for not of for do lie a A circular was issued Monday by the Northern Pacific passenger department announcing that it is once more a compet itor of San Francisco business. For sev eral years past, since the organization of the Transcontinental association, the Northern Pacific has not been a San Frar cisco line. It has refrained from com peting for South Pacific coast business, because of a bonus paid it by the Trans continental association. Now* that the as sociation is no more, the Northern Pacific is bound by no agreement, and consequent ly announces itself a competitor for this business. An association lias been formed at Hel ena to build a railroad from that city up Ten Mile Creek to the Red Mountain mining district. It will be known as the Helena & Red Mountain Railway com pany and will have a capital stock of $300.000. The incorporators will be Gov. S. T. Hauser, E. L. Bonner of Deer Lodge, ÄÄ'TSÄ I torney of the Northern Pacific ; Gen. Adna * ' • • - 1 Anderson, chief engineer of the Northern Pacific and other prominent railroad men. It is stated the road will be completed within ninety days TheDrummSandPhmpsburgstage was held up on Wednesday mtrning about eight miles north of the latter place. The Wells-Fargo treasure box containing 861, was taken by the rob bers, but the United States mail was not rvwxi™#„.i rpi » . ... / , I molested. The driver did not see the I robbers, as they kept themselves con cealed behind a brush screen which they had erected and, presenting a double barreled shot-gun, ordered him to throw out the treasure box, drive on and not look back, w T hich command he obeyed. It is supposed the robbers were after a heavy shipment of gold dust which came down on the previous trip. Offi cers started in pursuit, but no clue has been obtained of the highw r aymen. Y»ealt Dudley Going; Back to England. It is understood that Mrs. Yseult Dudley, the woman wffio shot O'Dono van Rossa in February, 1885, will leave within a few. days for England. She was transferred last Monday from Mid dletown asylum, m w'hich she was eon fined by order of the court, to the insane asjlum at Auburn, because no one could be found to bear her expenses to England, w here permission had been | obtained for her to go. The friend who has at this late day intervened in her behalf is at present unknown. He is understood to be a gentleman of social prominence and rank in England, who was deeply interested in her when she was in that country, but who during her trial and troubles here kept himself in the background. The sum assumed and paid by the gov ernment for the w r ar of the revolution was 66,000,000; the of 1812 cost $115,000, 000; the Mexican war 135,000,000, and the war of the rebellion 66,189,920,905. and an that on on St. for of in & The Gold Brick Swindle Again. The bogus gold brick game was work ed on Friday of last week at Butte upon a prominent old-time citizen of that place named Col. J. D. Jenks. The per petrators of the swindle are Capt. E. F. Page, formerly publisher of a Walker ville paper, and William Shaw, a recent arrival in Butte, who is said to be a gambler and an all-round confidence man. This ancient game was worked in the usual manner, the only variation being the way in which Page became possessed of the supposed valuable pro perty, which he explained to the victim as follows: He said a friend just from Nevada had brought the brick; that he had been an inmate of the Nevada peni tentiary several years ago. While con fined there the treasury coach was robbed and the guard killed by road agents. One of the robbers was caught and imprisoned with Shaw while await ing trial. He was sentenced to be hung, but before the execution told Shaw where his share of the gold taken from the treasury coach had been hidden. Shaw recently finished his term, got the gold bar from where it was hidden, and fearing to offer it for sale there brought it to Butte. It was worth about 64,000, but Shaw would sell it for 61,500. Jenks bit at the offer and went with Page and Shaw out to the Horse canyon where the bar was secreted. Jenks filed the pieces from it for assay and wrapped them in paper, but the swindlers substi tuted real gold filings for the spurious. The assay being all right, Jenks bought the bar. He ascertained by a subse quent assay that he had been victim ized and that the bar was made of an alloy resembling gold, but not worth a dollar. Shaw and Page were both ar rested while attempting to leave the city. Less than 6500 was recovered of the amount. The men were arraigned on W ednesday, when 13ean waived ex amination and was remanded to jail to await the October term of court, in de fault of 62,000 bonds. In the meantime Sheriff Belknap of Ogden, Utah, put in an appearance and claimed the prisoner, who is wanted at that place to serve an unexpired term for playing a confidence game on a man named Thompson, and afterwards knocking him down and robbing him of 6300. If Bean is sen tenced at Butte he will be taken charge of by the Utah authorities at the expi ration of his term. Uneasy on the Frontier. An Omaha special says : News has been received here from Fort Niobrara, Nebraska, that Chiefs Two Strikes and Turning Bear, of the Ogallala Sioux, visited that post to get permission from the commandant, General Brisbin, for about five hundred Sioux Indians of the Rosebud agency to visit the Crow In dians, a party of whom, under White Bull, are now visiting at Rosebud. The agent at Rosebud had denied permission to make the proposed visit. Turning Bear and Two Strikes informed General Brisbin that they and their friends pro posed to go notwithstanding, as they wanted to trade ponies with the Crows and get back 100 stolen ponies which the Crows promised to return them if they would make a visit. Gen. Brisbin advised them to remain on their reser vation. Considerable uneasiness is felt among settlers along the northern fron tier, owing to the determination of so RifcRy Indians to make the trip, as it is feared they may be tempted to commit depredations.
