Since that time Mr. Scliussler had resided at Butte, where he was engaged as a representative of the Butte Miner under the Zeigenfuss man agement, finally drifting into the saloon business. From a Helena Independent special we glean the following particulars of the sail affair: For a year or more Scliussler has been managing the Arcade saloon on lower Main street, owned by Henry Miller. He has been perfectly square in the transaction of the business, and so far as Miller knows has turned in the receipts each day till last Saturday, when he made a losing at cards. That night and since lie has avoided Miller. The lat ter heard of the gambling, and to fright en Scliussler into better behavior, left word he would have him arrested if he didn't come to see him and settle. Sclius sler went to bed about 12 o'clock Tuesday night in Ins room in the second story of tiie Arcade building, requesting the night bar keeper to call him on going off his shift. He was called early but did not answer. About 8 o'clock Miller came to the Arcade, and being unable to get an answer to his knocks at Schussler's door, called a policeman and forced it. They found Scliussler lving on the bed covered with blood, almost dead, with a bulldog revolver in his hand. He had shot him self on the side of the head in front of the right ear, and the bullet came out at the top of the head. He expired just be töre noon, without regaining consciousness. The coroner's jury rendered a verdict of suicide. No other trouble than the one mentioned is known to have existed. Horrible Railroad Accident. A terrible disaster, 4 one which surpasses any previous railway accident in this country, occurred on the Toledo, Peoria & Warsaw railway Thursday. An excur sion train composed of seventeen coaches and sleepers, crowded with passengers from Peoria and other points along the line was wrecked two and one-half miles east of Chalsworth, Livingston county, Illinois, by running into a burning bridge. The engines were completely wrecked, together with ten coaches and the bag gage car. Engineer McClintock was in stantly killed, two firemen and the other engineer escaping serious injury. The ten cars were piled on top of the two en gines, being telescoped and piled across and on top of each other. It is miracu lous how any one escaped, as the coaches and engines did not occupy more than two car lengths of the track. In one coach not a person escaped. In another only a lady. As the dead were laid along side of eacli other, out in the com fields, there were ready hands to take them into Cliats worth, while some of the wounded were carried to Piper City. One hundred and eighteen was the awful pile of the dead, while the wounded numbers four times that number. .. The full number of dead cannot be told" for days. be to ter of of as ter of the has his the 500 ing The in the will ena the is the been as Jim of his also in hos was first a the the a is of to to a An Ocean Horror. The sloop Sara was capsized in the Gulf of California on July 25th, and all on board except the captain and four sailors, who saved themselves by climbing on the bottom of the boat, perished. The vessel contained the captain, his wife and children, niece, and Entladgo, superin tendent of the Boston copper mine at Santa Rosita, and a crew of five men. On the second day the bodies of those drowned arose to the surface and were de voured by sharks, while the husband and father looked on the awful sight with horror. On the 30th two of the sailors became crazy and, jumping overboard, were immediately devoured by sharks. The captain and two sailors remained on the bottom of the vessel eight days, sus taining life by catching turtles that would come near them, and sucking their blood. They were, rescued in a most pitiable con dition by the fishing sloop Refugio, and afterwards transferred to the Balee. Homicide in Silver Bow County. In a quarrel over the right to a piece of hay land, between ranchmen near Melrose on Wednesday, Z. C. Maddox was fatally shot and Charles Powers wounded in the right hand by C. A. Clayton. After the shooting Clayton went to Butte and sur rendered himself and was placed in jail. His story of the affair is that Maddox, Powers and Wm. Peterson came to the field where he was mowing prepared for a fight, Maddox being armed with a shot gun and Powers having a revolver. A peaceable discussion soon changed to hot words and active hostilities, during which Maddox drew his gun and started for Clayton, who ran to his mower, got a Colt's navy and opened tire upon his as sailants with the above result. From Nye City. Since the Minneapolis Mining and Smelting company resolved to proceed with the immediate development of their mine and the erection at once of reduction works of a daily capacity of forty tons, the wonted quietness of this camp has been disturbed by the numer ous arrivals in quest of both work and wealth. And even at this early date the hills resound with the noise of the »voodman's axe, securing the logs nec essary for the erection of the prelimi nary dwellings. The above mentioned company has commenced laying off blocks and lots on their town site, and as an inaugural gave away one block, the lots on which were immediately taken up by the pioneer arrivals, and on wlrch, at present writing, five "shacks" or huts are in course of erec tion. It is the intention to plat out the remainder of the town site the coming week, and lots at reasonable and fair figures will be disposed of to bona fide settlers. The location is an admirable one, and, given a fair success to their operations, will make a very pretty and picturesque town. It is greatly to be regretted that we have no saw mill at work, as people would build frame houses, and the number of log huts would be greatly reduced, besides en hancing cue appearance oi vue settle ment. Since the arrival of the superintend ent of the company, the smelter site has been selected, and to-morrow (Mon day) a force of men will be placed at work grading the same, and making the necessary preparations for the re ception and installation of the buildings and machinery. A few men will also be placed at work on the mine, and the number will be gradually increased from now until the time when the smelter will be in operation. With the number of men employed on the road to the camp by the company, the total number at work by the end of the week will amount to fifty. Contracts will also be let shortly for charcoal, wood and other supplies, and by the end of the month close to a hundred persons will be at work. I will have to reserve for another let ter some remarks on the general ap pearance of the camp, its mines, ores, their character, etc. John P. Humphreys, ex-metallur gist, and Nick Tredenick, ex-foreman of the Great Republic Mining eompany of Cooke City, arrived in camp Satur day to remain permanently, the former as general superintendent, and the lat ter as foremen for the Minneapolis Mining and Smelting company. A number of Cooke Cityites are ar riving, some by trail over the hills, and some by other routes and conveyances. Amongst the number are Judge Mush back, Thomas Morton, Ed. Stewart, It. Donegan and J. P. Blakely. Jerry Twohig is hard at work on his building and will soon be on deck. Mrs. Twohig and child have the dis tinction of being the first lady and child in camp. Mr. John Lilly will re turn to Cooke City to remove his stock of goods and will locate here. Thomas Ross, as soon as he can get the lumber and build, will open a gen eral mercantile establishment. A good hotel and boarding house are badly needed, also postal facilities. "Nye City." A Hie Deal. Inter Mountain: The Camas No. 2 mine in the Wood River district, Idaho, has been recently disposed of to Euro pean capitalists for a consideration of .$2,000,000. On his recent trip to that country Capt. John Brannagan made his third and final report on the mine, which decided the sale. The shaft on the mine is 500 feet deep, and there are 500 feet of levels. The ore is gold bear ing and high grade, and the ledge is from eight to twenty five feet in width. The mine is situated twelve miles from Hailey. The purchase was made from Messrs. Tuttle, Evans and the Donovan brothers, and $200,000 was to be paid in cash, half a million in mortgage bonds, and the remainder in stock in the enterprise. Extensive operations will be begun at once. The Largeat Nugget. A correspondent writing to the Hel ena Independent from Murray, Idaho, says: A nugget was brought to the Bank of Murray last night that turns the scales at thirty-three ounces, four pennyweights and ten grains. This represents upwards of $530 in gold, and is the largest yet found in the country, the next largest being the twenty-nine ounce nugget found on the Horseshoe claim in Trail gulch last winter.
