The annual leport of Third Assistant
Postmaster General Harris, which 1ms just
been submitted to the postmaster general,
states that the total cost of service for the
fiscal year inclusive of the amount re
turned by the subsidized Pacific railroad
companies for mail ' transportation was
$58,125,034.67. The postal and money
order receipts amounted to $52,695,107.

This deficiency is mainly owing to the
great extension of the free delivery system
and the increase in railway mail transpor
The river coal operators met in Pitts
burg on Saturday to discuss the «juestiou
of closing all the river mines in the Mo
nongehela valley for six months. One of
their number states that the operators al
most unanimously favored the moyement
and that the mines would be closed until
spring. Over 7,000 coal miners are
thrown out of employment. The shut
down will also affect a large number ot
river men, boat builders and mine labor
ers. The operators claim that the market
is overstocked and that coal is now selling
at 5 cents per bushel, the lowest price in
many years.
Five of the Minneapolis flour mills,
representing 7,000 barrels daily capacity
or 25 per cent, of the city's daily con
sumption, are now shut down. To this
number there will be several additional
ones this week. When navigation closes
and ice begins to get troublesome there
will be a general curtailing of flour pro
duction. The reasons for this are wheat
shortness and dullness of the flour mar
ket. Most of the big millers have large
quantities of flour in stock ready to take
advantage of an improvement in trade.
It is estimated, however, that stocks will
not be larger than normal by January
Lord Randolph Churchill in a speech
at Waddington November 17th expressed
the hope that the post of minister at
Washington would soon be filled. There
was no doubt Lord Sackville had been
indiscreet and made an inexcusable blun
der. No fault could be found with the
action of the United States toward the
minister. The American people were es
sentially just and proud in their relations
with other countries. He deprecated the
insulting and menacing articles in the
English press since Lord Sackville's dis
missal, and said Englishmen ought to in
form Americans that they ehciish no ill
feeling towards them.
According to a cable dispatch from
Queenstown the Umbria reached that port
at 10 p. m. November 18th. According
to this the Umbria made the fastest taet
ward passage across the Atlantic on rec
ord, the running time being six days, two
hours and twenty-two minutes. The bèst
eastern passage hitherto made was by the
Etruria in April, 1888—six days, tour
hours and forty minutes. The best west
ward passage ou record is six days, one
hour aud fifty minutes, by the Etruria.
According to all accounts brought fn by
ships from over the western Ocean the
Umbria had a howling northwt^t gale to
boom her along the whole week through.

Ten or fifteen convicts attempted to es
cape from the Tennessee penitentiary in
Nashville by cutting through the ceiling
from the fourth floor to the roof and then
through the roof. The warden had been
warned of the attempt and and had sta
tioned extra guards on the roof and about
the yard. Guards Robert Burnett and
Charles Corbin were stationed near where
the roof was cut and waited until seven
men had come out when they ordered
them to halt. Instead of doing so they
dashed at the guards and Burnett fired
one barrel of his gun, loaded with buck
shot, instantly killing John Stevens and
painfully wounding W. T. Henson None
A gang of twenty-two tramps boarded
a local freight tram last week on the Bos
ton & Albany railway, between Spring
field and Indian Orchard. When the
train stopped at Indian Orchard station
they were obliged to get off while switch
ing was going on. Afterwards they at
tempted to board the train again, and a
brisk fight ensued. The train hands beat
the men off with coupling pins, and the
ruffians retaliated by throwing stones un
til the train got out of reach. They then
terrorized the community and threw
stones at the depot. Help was summoned
from Springfield and a special train was
made up with a force of policemen on
board. The tramps were just west of In
dian Orchard and the officers gave chase,
each singling out a man. Six were cap
tured in this way, and City Marshal Clime
shot and killed a seventh. The shooting
was accidental. The dead man is sup
posed to be a bank burglar.
Chief Constructor Wiison of the navy,
in his annual report of the operations of
his bureau during the past fiscal year,
shows an expenditure of $885,349 in the
repair of ships and payments on account
of vessels in course of construction during
the year amounting to $3,266,195. The
present strength of our navy and the con
dition of the vessels is summarized as fol
lows: Five doublc-turreted monitors,
awaiting completion; two belted cruisers,
preparing ways; thirteen siugle-turretcd
monitors, in ordinary; twenty-tlyee un
armored steel and iron vessels, four of
which are m commission, eleven building,
two repairing, five on station and one in
ordinary; twenty-eight wooden steam ves
sels, nearly all on station or undergoing
repairs, and eleven iron and wood steam
tugs. The estimates for the next fiscal
year call for $930,452 for construction
and repair of vessels completed, and $3,
540,000—the latter sum already appro
priated—for hulls and outfits of new
ships. He recommends the immediate
construction of experimental works, to
cost $60,000, for use in the determination
of the resistance and other qualities of
ships by means of models, holding that
the tanks will be of permanent value in
designing high speed vessels and in ana
lyzing the results of ship trials.
W. A. Clark of Butte, the defeated
democratic candidate for the delegate
ship from Montana, thus explains to a
Pioneer Press reporter in St. Paul the
whys and wherefors of his defeat:
'"There has been a large emigration to
Montana in the past two years. A great
many of the new settlers came from re
publican districts and a large portion
of them are Swedes. They are usually
republicans, but even at that Montana
is not necessarily republican. As I said
before, on Saturday night the betting
was 2 to 1 in my favor, but there was a
combination against me which could
not be defeated. On Saturday the fore
man of the night shift in the Anaconda
mine ordered his men to vote for Car
ter. The day shift on Sunday also re
ceived the same orders, and five bosses
were stationed at one of the polling
places to see that those orders were car
ried out. The employes of the Missoula
Mercantile company received similar
orders, and the employers saw that they
were obeyed. I do not undertake to say
who was behind these orders, but I do
know that they were issued. The em
ployes of the Northern Pacific in the
territory number about 2,000. They
were under instructions to vote for
Carter, although the officers say that no
instructions were issued by them. Be
sides this, Governor Hauser was not
enthusiastic for the ticket. To show 7
that the fight in Montana was not on
the tariff question one only needs to
look at the result in Choteau county.
This is one of the largest wool-growing
counties in the state, but it was re
moved from the influence brought to
bear at Helena and Butte, and I received
300 majority in the county. Dawson
county, which was republican two years
ago, also gave me a small majority."
Silver Bow's assessment for
amounts to $9.100,8^5. Of this amount
Butte contributes $5,400.000.
A rich strike is reported in the Major
! Budd mine near Butte. It is said that an
I eight-inch streak assaying 273 ounces in
| silvei was struck just below their lower
Judge Bach has sentenced Charles
Gordon of Fort Benton to be hung on the
11th of Janurary next for rhe murder of
John A. Larelle last July. The prisoner
on being asked why sentenced should not
be pronounced on him said he had noth
ing to say except that it was unjust.
Two years ago the territory of Montana
cast 32,252 votes for delegate, which was
an increase of about 5,000 over 1884.
This year the vote of the territory will be
from 38,000 to 40,000, showing an in
crease of 6.000 to 8,000 votes within the
past two years. Taking this as a basis of
estimate the population of Montana to-day
is about 160,000 souls.
Some sixty men have been arrested at
Black font mills in Missoula county.
They were taken to Missoula by Deputy
United States Marshal Higgins and
charged with illegal voting. The men
are in custody at the court house, while
friends are endeavoring to lind bail for

The long contested litigation in Chi
cago, in the case of T. W. Hall & Co.,
wool commission merchants, is ended.
Judge Pendergast decided the turning
over of the wool to the storage company,
who negotiated storage receipts for it, was
illegal, as the wool was never legally in
their possession. Such of the consignees
as could identify their property were al
lowed to get possession of it. Lienemaun
& Schmidt of Butte, Mont., and Grady
Bros, of Big Timber, Mont., recover nearly
all their consignments, and Banker Raw
sou, who had advanced Ayers & Fell of
Montana $80,000 on wool, was declared
to have a lien on the property in storage
for $18,000. The remainder is to be di
vided among the holders of receipts.
The president has signed an order di
recting the return to the Crow reservation
in Montana of the three Indian prisoners
—Crazy Head,Knows-His-Coues and Car
ries- Iiis-Food—who are now under Capt.
Pratt's charge at the Indian training
school at Carlisle, Pa. These Indians
sided with Sword-Bearer, the alleged med
icine man of the Crows, at the time of his
little rebellion. It was hoped to educate
them to a certain degree of civilization by
sending them to Carlisle. The chief ob
jection to them is their diseased condi
tion, which it was feared would be com
municated to other Indians at the school.
The Crows, more than any other tribe of
Indians, suffer from scrofulous complaints
of a very acute character, and it was this
tribal characteristic which led the author
ities to return these Indians to their res
Independent: H. F. Brown owner
and lessee of the Cinnabar coal mines,
was in the city yesterday. Cinnabar is on
the Park branch forty-nine miles above
Livingston. The mines are distant frein
the railroad a quarter of a mile, and a track
is now being laid to them. The veins
have a total width of sixteen and a half
feet. The present working force is now
taking out 160 tons of coal daily, and upon
the completion of the railroad tr?ck to the
mine the output will reach 200 tons daily.
Mr. Brown states that the supply does
not equal the demand, which comes from

1888 J
j towns in Montana from Billings to Butte,
Missoula and intermediate [»oints. The
Northern Pacific road also wants the coal
and w ill take all that can be mined, wlnle
Helena has use for 200 tons daily. The
coal possesses excellent coking qualities,
and of a car load which was coked and
used in Montana it was said it was equal
to the beät .Connellsville coke. Mr.
Brown is an experienced miner and state
that the Cinnabar mines are destined to
become an important factor in the fuel
market in Montana.

Helena Record : A terrible boiler ex
plosion happened at the Boston «& Mon
tana Co.'s Colusa concentrator in Butte on
Monday afternoon, instantly killing En
gineer W. D. Edmonds, Wm. O'Connor,
Jacob Craemer and Harry Winters, and
seriously wounding Geo. Heckman, John
Eustas and Richard Wing. Sections of
the boiler flew in opposite directions. The
engineer who was in front of it, was
hurled a distance of 140 feet and terribly
mangled. Fragments of it shooting along
through the air struck O'Connor on the
head, completely severing the scalp.
Falling machinery and timbers killed aud
wounded the others. The concentrator is
a total wreck. The cause of the explo
sion is not known, but is believed to have
occurred through the mistake of the engi
neer. The boiler was in the use of the
concentrator for the first time. It was
not a new one but in sound condition. It
is presumed that the engineer connected
it with adjoining boilers, which Dot hav
ing equal capacity tor pressure and the
steam from the three adjoining boilers ris
ing into this one with great force, it liter
ally tore it to to pieces. Edmonds was a
married man and leaves four children and
is a member of the Masonic fraternity.
The accident is the first of its nature that
has ever occurred in this section and has
Caused a erOnt sensation.
The following is a list of those elected
to meet as the legislative body of Mon
tana at the next regular session. There
are, it will be seen, seven republican
and five democratic councilmen, and

The delegation of representative re
publicans who attended the Helena
blow-out from Livingston do not seem
to be especially satisfied with their
reception at the capital. They say
that the] 7 had to shift for them
selves on their arrival and that not
one of the eastern Montana representa
tives—not excepting old Dr. Burleigh,
of Miles City—was invited upon the
platform. Considering that Park was
the banner county of the territory, this
does not look very well and we do not
blame the delegation for kicking.
What else could be expected, however,
as it is in accordance with the Helena
Butte theory that there is no such place
as eastern Montana. Perhaps there
will come a day when Helena will be
glad to court the favor of this part of
the territory in times of peach as well
as in times of election, for we give her
warning that there are people collecting,
industries springing into life, and other
causes operating which are liable
within a few years to throw 7 the balance
of power far to the eastward of Last
Chance Gulch.
