Bookbt, Att'v for Claimant. _ (First publication hereof Oct. 1888.) NEWS OF THE WEEK. A terrific explosion of fire damp in a coal mine near Pittsburgh, Kas., killed nearly 160 miners. Shaft No. 2 at the Frontenac mines was the scene of the ex plosion. Senator Barnum of the national demo cratic committee is very 111. He has been prominently before the public for many years as one of the great exec utive leaders of the democratic party. General Warren, chief of pohee in Lon don, has tendered his resignation. It is understood this action is due tothesevere criticism upon Ills inefficiency in connec tion with the Wfiite Chapel murders. Fred Dubois, the republican nominee for delegate in Idaho, has been elected. He strongly advocated retaining the tariff on lead and has been a leader in the cru sade against the Mormons. Thus Idaho speaks. The republicans in almost every town in the United States of any size are cele brating the national victory by tremen dous ratification meetings, and the states are having state gatherings in their vari ons capitals. The destruction by fire last Saturday of the Rochester Steam Gunge and Lantern works, in Rochester, N. Y., resulted in the death of over fifty of the male em ployes. Most of them were needlessly killed by jumping from the windows and not taking advantage of the fire escapes. The supreme court of Missouri has af firmed the verdict of murder m the first degree against William Walker, chief of the notorious Bald Knobbers organization in southern Missouri. He will be hanged December 28. This decision will effect three others of the gang who were con victed about the same time Walker was. Mr. A. T. Brittan, a well known lawyer of Washington lias been designated by the executive committee of the republican national committee to take charge of the ceremonies attending the inauguration of President Harrison. He has been au thorized also to appoint the necessary of ficers and committcs to look after the work. It is reported on no less authority than that of Colonel Conger, a member of the national republican committee, that Har rison has said that he would offer Blaine the portfolio of secretary of state, and Gen. Lew Wallace that of secretary of war. He is reported also to have said that he did not believe Blaine would ac cept of the position. A snow storm and gale, which in sever ity has seen few equals even in winter, prevailed last week along the St. Law rence. It extended over the whole of Quebec and the maritime provinces. Dis patches from Lower Quebec say that 2i feet of snow has fallen all along the lower St. Lawrence, and that serious fears are entertained^ that there has been a large loss of life among the fishermen on both shores of the gulf. The Whitechapel murderer again comes to the front with his eighth victim. War ren, chief of the Metropolitan police, has issued a proclamation offering a free par don to any accomplice the Whitechapel murderer may have had, provided he will give information which will lead to the murderer's apprehension. These fearful murders are now the talk of the world. The attention of the English parliament has been called to the matter in a formal manner. There is some talk of the resig nation of General Warren, the chief of the London police, on account of aspersions on Ins unsuccessful attempts to apprehend the murderer. The anniversary of the hanging of the anarchists was observed on November 11 by their Chicago sympathizers, but not within the limits of the city. Police reg ulations prevented any procession or fly ing of red bunting, and there was no out break of any kind. About 5,000 people, men, women and children, gathered indi vidually at the depot, and two big trains carried them to Waldheim cemetery. On the way to the cemetery the crowd re sembled anything rather than people bent upon a melancholy errand. Joking and chaffing was the order of the day all the way out. None of the persons who gained notoriety through the anarchists' trial were present, except Spies' sister Gretchen and the daughter of George Engle. The ceremonies were very quiet. Parsons' letter to his children, which was to be read on the first anniversary of his death, was a touching and fatherly epis tle, but contained no anarchtal sentiments. Three thousand socialists met in Hyde Park, London, to obaerve. this same anni versary and to denounce the suppression of free speech m Trafalgar square. There was no disturbance. The Courier notices writh pleasure that Dr. A, H. Hersey and wife are to become residents of Bozeman. The doctor has taken a position with T. C. Burns and will have charge of the prescription and other departments of the store. It is re ported that Dr. Hersey has sold Iris inter est in a drug store in Helena and if busi ness justifies will invest in Bozeman smVl make his home there permanently. Qrlo vn a/ DtPext^c. MONTANA NEWS. Dr. Parsons, the well known veterinary surgeon, (lied suddenly Sunday morning, in Helena, of pneumonia. His remains were embalmed by Undertaker Flaherty and shipped cast Monday night. Courier: Jerry Matthews lost another valuable horse last week. This makes nine he has had the misfortune to lose during the summer and fall—five of them valuable animals and worth in the aggre gate at least $800. They died of the in fluenza, which has had such a run for some time past in the territory. Yellowstone Journal: It is somewhat of a surprise to see that sterling demo cratic sheet, the Glendive Independent, came out with an exaggerated rooster and the yell of "Rah for Our Side," over the election of Harrison and Morton, but this is an era of surprises, and we suppose this must go with the rest. "Joe" Weidmeyer, the presiding genius of the Independent, is likewise postmaster of Glendive, his commission bearing the signature of Mr. Cleveland. He no doubt finds that the official collar fits easy on his neck, and he is therefore not averse to wearing it for another term, hence his somewhat deferred enthusiasm for Harrison and Morton. Governor's report: The output of our mines ten years ago was $7,000,000. Now it is over $51,000,000. The total value of the taxable property in the terri tory then was $12,000,000; now it is $70, 000,000—not including the value of the mining property. The number of cattle in the territory then was 220,000; now it is 1,500,000. The number of sheep then w'as 120,000; now it is over 2,000,000. The number of horses then was 40, 000 ; now it is 200,000. The number of acres of land then under cutivation was 205,000; now there are over 2,000,000 acres appro priated and suited for farming purposes Thcn the commerce of the whole terri tory was $20,000,000, now it is $40,000, 000. Then there was but a dozen or so miles of railroads; now there are over 2, 000. Then the population 30,000; now it 140,000. Then the territory was $112, 000 in debt; now it is out of debt, and and there is plenty of money in the treas urer. The Bozeman Daily Chronicle quits the field in the following language: "A short time ago we heard of a 'young man' who started a daily p:\per and made a success of it. When asked to what lie attributed his success, he replied : 'Alone to the fact that in the first number I did. not say 'we have come to stay.' Inad vertently l we have come to stay' crept into our make-up, and as surely as effect follows cause w T e have taken the course taken by so many of the 'long felt wants.' In the far beyond of newspaperdom what a stack of the dong felt want sheets' must be piled, aud now one more bright and shining example has gone beyond the 'Sticks,' though competent men held the 'case,' to swell the discontinued majority. When we look back but a few days and see with what juvenile glee we watched the glitter of our works, the conclusion forces itself that our Courier is much like the Irishman's moon—it shined on light nights when it was not needed. The Helena Live Stock Journal thus protests against exaggerated reports of the depredations by wolves upon stock: '•From later reports from the north coun try we learn that the wolf stories have been very highly colored and much oyer drawn. They are by no means as bad as stated by the northern county papers. There have been and doubtless are yet wolves in the boundary line country and other parts of the territory and they have unquestionably been of some annoyanee to stockman, but to say that they come over the line in vast herds and deplete the stock from the country, carrying their ravages far and wide, is a misrepresenta tion of a high color. W T e understand why this is done. Our stock friends want a law passed by the coming legislature to place a bounty on captured wolves, and we think it is right and proper that sucli a law should be passed, aud we will do all we can to secure it. But this desire does not justify the getting up of an agi tation and fright about wolves wdien there is indeed little to fear from them. This does the country an immense amount of harm in the east where these reports cir culate freely aud ai e much exaggerated. The Helena Blow-oat. The following invitation was received by the Enterprise from the territo rial central conimittee : "The republican central committee extend to you and to all our political friends a cordial invitation to attend the republican territorial re-un ion and jubilee meeting on Saturday ev ening, November 17th. We wish to fitly commemorate the most notable event in the history of Montana, and to celebrate the great triumph of republican principles in the territory and nation* A republi can president, a republican United States senate, a republican house of representa tives, a republican delegate to congress, a republican legislature and a certainty of tHe early admission of Montana into the Union of states, all unite to make the oc casion one of general rejoicing. Leading republicans from all over the territory have signified their intention of being present. A special rate of one and one fifth fare from all points in the territory has been made by the Northern Pacific and the Montana Central Railroad compa nies. We hope that all republicans, and all friends of protection in Montana can join with us on Saturday evening. Very faithfully yours, E. D. Weed, Secretary. Publication Notes, In Frank Leslie's Popular Monthly for December, an article on Mexico, fully illustrated: is of great interest. It includes portraits of all who have been at the head of the Mexican Republic from the days of Hidalgo. A. S. South worth writes of the great Florida her ring, the Tarpon, and the sjiort attend ant upon its capture. An article on animals and their trainers is an inter esting account of how animals of all descriptions are taught the will of their masters . The continued story, "Irma," and a few short stories iill the hill very completely in the line of fiction. Frank Leslie's publications are all printed by the "Frank Leslie's Publishing House, 57 Park place, N ew Y ork. For a frontispiece the November Century has a fine engraving of that old English naval hero, Lord Nelson. In connection with this is an article en titled "Unpublished Letters of Nelson." They add greatly to a proper under standing of this tine character and are interesting reading. Another of Kee nan's Russian articles continues the ac count of that practically unknown country, Siberia. A spirited illustra tion, very true to life, entitled "Looking for Camp," attracts the eye and recalls many similar experiences to a western reader. On the whole this November number of the Century is very credit able and adds another to the long list of victories in magazine art achieved by the Century Company of Union Square,New York City. The subscrip tion price of the Century is S4 per year. The West Shore, an able and hand somely printed journal devoted to the growing industries of the Pacific north west, is replete this month with inter esting matter. Its engravings are in creasing in artistic value as time goes on and the colored Art Supplement which comes with each number is an addition to the appearance of any in terior. The magazine devotes its atten tion especially to Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, British Columbia and Alaska. It gives reliable descriptions and beautiful engravings of the mines, agricultural districts, stock interests, fishing industries, and the cities, towns and resources of the region above men tioned, as well as the famous scenery. It is published by L. Samuel of Port land, Ore. Subscription price, $2.50 per year; sample copies sent for 25 cents. The Overland Monthly comes to our exchange table this month from The Ovevland Monthhly Publishing com pany, 420 Mongomery street, San Fran cisso, Cal., full of valuable and enter taining matter to everybody, whether a resident of the Pacific coast or not. An article on the "Economic Value of the Eucalyptus" is the first that attracts the reader's eye and he will find it a thoughtful discussion of this question of great import in sparsely wooded dis tricts, that of the growing scarcity of wood. The writer claims that this can be settled by a cultivation of the Eu calyptus tree in such localities as needed. A full quota of fiction and a few choice bits of poetry form a lighter foreground for the more serious articles and the question which is agitating California, that of "Women on School Board," receives some attention. The American Magazine has made for itself a place in the front rank of similar publications. Its list of con tributors includes many of our best known authors. The November num ber contains a sketch of the Twenty third regiment of Brooklyn, and is the second paper on the crack regiments of America. This regiment has a tine rec ord, and as it is the pet and pride of the city of Brooklyn, its history is of great interest. "Some Adopted Americans is the title of an article m the Novem ber number. This article was prepared by the editor of the Journalist, Mr. Al lan Forman, who has made a careful study of the lower class immigrants and tenement house dwellers of New York City.

Fourth—To consider and if possible to pass the Blair educational bill and any other measures which receive the support of northern republicans, as to which the southern democrats are di vided.

Sixth—The admission of Oklahoma as a territory and its subsequent admis sion as a state, if it shall appear that the population is likely to be republi can.
