JTEWB OF THE WEEK. Mrs. Gen. M. T. Sherman died in New York on Inst Tuesday. Tne office of the Journal newspaper in Sidney, N. S. W., has been burned. It was the finest in Australia. The loss was about $500,000. Boulanger's wife is taking steps to ob tain a divorce. It is stated that one of the richest widows in France is willing to marry Boulanger. O'Connor, the Canadian oarsman, has defeated Teemer. He has started for Australia to compete for the champion ship of the world. Hertenstein, the president of Switzer land, who underwent an amputation of his right leg last week because of disease of the arteries, is dead. In accordance with his custom, Score - tary Whitney has presented each of the four hundred employes of the navy de partment with a large turkey for Thanks giving dinner. A panic in a St. Louis school resulting from unusual noise in the steam heaters was the cause of two of the teachers beiug severely trampled on and several scholars badly injured. Walking matches have evidently not gone out of fashion yet, as an audience of 8,000 people assembled in the Madison Square Garden in New York to witness forty-one inpn start on a six-day trump. The boss ale and porter brewers of New York and New Jersey at a meeting decided to lock out all their union men and employ non-union men. This is be cause of the continued boycott on Steven son's brewery. Henry George, in an address in London said : The grasping for land in America was rapidly making the country similar to England. He wanted to utterly abol ish landlordism, and to grant every child a share in the land. One of the most severe storms of snow and wind known for years became general oyer the proyince of Ontario Sunday evering. The wind at times blew as hard as 70 mile per hour. The streets and surrounding country are cov ered with snow drifts, ten feet in places, and the most severe cold prevails. Horse car lines here have stopped running. Forty-four people were picked up in the streets of Montreal by the police Sun day night unable to make their way through the storm, being benumbed by cold and bewildered by the - winds. Charley Mitchell, the English pugilist, who is now in Philadelphia, when shown the Bpstpp dispatch announcing John L. Sullivan's offer of $1,500 to Mitchell to stand up eight rounds in a public glove contest, said : "I don't want to take ad vantage of the man ; he is sick. He must have bad advisors. My advice to him would be to lay off for five years instead of five months, and by that time he might regain his old form. However, if he wants to have a go, I am willing to meet him, and what is more, I will give him $1 ,500 if he will stand up against me for eight rounds. General Crook was induced by tbe di rectors of the waifs' Sunday school to ad dress 1,200 street urchins at a Thanks giving dinner in Chicago. The subject qf his address was his experiences with the Indians, and the result was amusing to all, the noted Indian fighter, almost be fore he knew it, having a bad case of stage fright. The little street savages re ceived him with such paralyzing yells and other like demonstrations of deviltry that the subduer of redskins lost his voice completely and was obliged to retire to his seat, looking as fatigued as though he had just come back from a six days' fight with Gcronimo. Nevertheless the dinner was the greatest success of the kind that ever took place in Chicago. Gov. Jackson in an interview said the situation of the oyster rebellion, which confronts the state of Maryland, is this : There are 800 oyster vessels, whose crews, aggregating 5,000 armed men, are ban ded together to dredge on certain grounds and to drive off all state forces sent against them. To oppose them the state has fourteen vessels, most of them small sloops, manned by about a hundred men. We have reached the stage where this force cannot cope with the marauders, and I shall adopt measures for the en forcement of the law. I have reason to believe the secretary of war at Washing ton will grant us the use of five or six eight-pound cannons, which will be placed on the state steamers and at spots on the shore to be selected hereafter. The interstate commerce commission by Commissioner Walker has rendered a decision in the case of Slater vs. North ern Pacific Railroad company, which states : "A complaint made for the pur pose of retaliation for a fancied wrong so as to get even with tbe carrier for the revocation of the complainant's pass does not commend itself to the commission. A carrier which has conformed to the rul ing of the commission should not be prosecuted for alleged violation of the law in that respect, which has occurred before such ruling was made and under con struction of the law then approved by the carrier's counsel. Free transportation is sued in the form of an annual pass to a person not in regular ami stated service of the carrier nor receiving wages or salary under contract of employment, but re quested by him as a compensation for throwing in its way what business he con veniently could, is held to be illegal. A revolt ou the part of 2,000 men em ployed in the Turkish government trans ports, whose time has expired, has taken place. Tbe mutineers raked the fire from under the boiler of the transports in order to prevent their sailing until the arrears of their wages had been paid. The minister of war, with great difficulty, raised money with which to pay the men and the vessels have sailed. The sultan has ordered an inquiry to be made into the matter. Work lor Admission. The able ex-managing editor of the Pioneer Press is row acting as the Washington correspondent for that great journal. He has been taking a great deal of interest in the admission of the territories and in discussing that important subject in a recent letter ex presses himself as follows: My impression that the straight and speedy path to statehood for the four northwestern territories lies through strong concerted action on their part, looking to the calling of an extra ses sion of congress next March, is strength ened by the development of events. The president-elect isn't a Russian czar and can't admit territories by edict. His election has made statehood possi ble for the two Dakotas, .Montana and Washington. It remains for the people of those territories to realize the possi bilities thus opened to them. The ter ritories would do well to give their early attention to tne influential members elept of the new congress, to the hold over members of the senate and the men who are likely to mould the action of the new house. It might as well be confessed that there may be more than democratic opposition to overcome; that the eastern jealousy of western preponderance in the senate |s not dead, but sleepeth only, and that the north west may have to combat New England torpor and indifference as well as active hostility from the south. Surely these occult influences will never be weaker nor more easily overcome than at the end of a brilliant and successful cam paign in which the admission of tlie territories was a distinct party issue. It will be easier to get the territories in in March than in December. The notion for a concerted movement for an extra session on the part of the territories meets with the heart«- ap proval of such of their representatives as have visited Indianapolis, and vari ous suggestions come to me as to how it is to be worked out in detail. One sagacious Dakotan believes that the ball can be set rolling through the leg islatures of the several territories this winter; that constitutional conventions can be called early in January, organic laws framed and elections held before spring, and a U the territories present themselves at the extra session as ready for statehood as South Dakota herself. This would do very well for North Da kota, though it would be rather quick work there; but nobody here seems to know for certain that the legislatures of Montana and Washington meet this winter in regular session. Of course, if they do not, their democratic governors would never call them together in special session. For the other territories, if they have legislative sessions, the same course is open to them. If not, they can join the statehood and extra session movement by calling general conventions—either to form constitutions and provide for elections in advance of congressional authorization, or to declare the wishes of the people in resolutions and appoint delegations to go to Washington and agitate for an extra session and ena bling acts. It is suggested here that a joint convention of representatives of all the four territories might profitably be held at an early day, at some central point like Helena, to give utterance to the general voice on the subject and ap point a joint delegation to represent all the territories in Washington this winter. A London dispatch says that a boy named Husband, aged 11 year, who was first to give notice of the discovery of the boy Searl who was found dying in the streets of Havant, with his throat cut from ear to ear, ha? been arrested for the murder. The crime was un doubtedly commited in emulation of "Jack, the ripper," the chronicles of whose treacheries have incited deprav ed youth in many parts of the kingdom to an imitation of his deeds and the po lice throughout the country are thus confronted with a new problem. The Spitfield's vigilance committees organ ized to aid the constabulary in detect ing the Whitechapel murderer and pre venting further crimes has secured the approval of the police to their appoint ment of ten men each night to watch the courts and allies of the east end and otherwise act jointly with the metro politan forces.

The Salvation Army m Helena was ar rested, charged with being a nuisance and obstructing the streets. They were tried before a jury, acquitted of the charge and went on their way rejoicing. Bert Yaile, who is to be deputy county clerk under Jas. W. Drennan has taken up his residence in the city. He in com pany with his father-in-law Mr. Çopple, has leased the Aylsworth residence and pinning mill and will give the planing mill business some attention also. President Hill of the Manitoba railroad was in Helena last week. He said that the prospects of the Milk river country were great. Settlers were coming in rap idly and not waiting for the government surveys. Travel over his road had greatly increased since the through trains had been on. The president has directecd the new Fort Belknap Indian agency to be located on Milk river, twelve miles east of Snake river, Montana. A chauge of location was made necessary by the act of May 1, 1888, which materially reduced the size of the reservation, leaving the old agency outside of the new limits. Helena Live Stock Journal: The ex tradition papers in the case of George Godas, the Cree, have arrived from Wash ington and are in the possession of Sheriff Hathaway, who started for Edmunton, Canada, where Godas is being held. The sheriff will undertake the job alone, being confident that he is an equal to Godas and that the wily Cree cantm] elude him and escape. The papers are made out upon the governor of the province, and are signed by President Cleveland. A meeting of the Montana Agricultural M ineral and Mechanical association was held in Helena. The officers elected were the same;as last year. They me: Presi dent, A. J, Davidson; vice president, T. C. Power; treasurer, B. H. Tatem; secre tary, Francis Pope; directors, Wm. Muth, C. D. Hard, L. H. Hershtield, Wm. B. Hundley and W. A. Chessman. The meetings for 1889 will be held in July and August, the regular annual meeting announced to begin August 35th. S. A. Douglass of Helena, of the gov ernor's staff, arrived in Bozeman on Fri day night, and on Saturday morning in spected Company B. Within a few days the boys will get their annual appropria tion of $500 and very soon will come in for a share of the benefits to be derived from the national Dill introduced by Dele gate Toole, which fully provides for their equipment. At present Company li is provided with dress uniforms, sabres, belts, guns, slings, etc., and will soon pur chase a fatigue uniform.—Chronicle. Tranchant : We learn that the expense of flmning New York gulch and the flume operations ot Trout creek have cost F. D. Spratt fully $140,000. The only income this season will be from the New York gulch flume, but it is thought that next year the flume in Trout creek will have reached pay dirt and yield considerable gold. It is thought that $50,000 more will be expended in this creek before the bed rock is reached, but Mr. Spratt and his brother, who is an extensive Michigan lumberman, are willing and able to ex pend all the cash that may be required to consummate the undertaking. The annual reports of Indian agents for Montana have been received by the commissioner of Indian affairs and are partly in print. Agent Baldwin, of tbe Blackfect agency, states: "The Indians show marked progress in civilization and a desire for houses and lands to till. The Indians have built about 8,000 rods of fence, and have also had considerable amount of ground under cultivation. Agent Peter Ronan, writing from the Flathead agency, reports 2,018 Indians Maj. E. C. Fields, agent at Fort Belknap, 964 Gros Ventres and 830 Assinaboines, a total of 1,794 Indians under his care. The London mine at Neihart, which has been in litigation for the past three years has at last been patented. Work on the property has been continued in a quiet way all these years, but since liti gation commenced nothing has been known by the outside world as the mine had been under lock and key and none but the workmen allowed to enter. But since the litigation has been settled and the patent for the ground received, the lock and key has been taken off, and we learn from Captain McIntosh, »« ho vis ited it, that the lower tunnel on the mine has been run in a distance of 450 feet and that cross cuts show a solid body of galena ore eighteen feet thick. The mineral vein is traced over one-half of the claim, which is 2,300 feet. This we be lieve to be the largest body of galena ore known to exist in the country, and prom ises of its self to furnish a good carrying trade for a railroad. Its location is high up on the mountain side and can be worked to a great depth from a tunnel. Independent: Dick Barnes, one of the best known horse owners in the northwest suicided at Walla Walla last Tuesday. He had played m every thing he poss essed at faro and it in a fit of desper ation blew his brains out with a Winches ter rifle. Last season lie went the rounds of the northwestern circuit with D. K. W. and Contractor. He was one of the best known characters on the Montana turf and was a general favorite having always a good word for every one. Though never wealthy, he did well with his horses always, but almost invariably lost in bucking the tiger what he won on the turf. His horses were always in good condition and ready to start. He was over 00 years of age and was unmarried. Mr. A. McGreggor, who has by drill process ascertained the depth to bed rock in the gravel range at the head of Mon tana gulch, has determined to put a tun nel through the mountain for drainage anil to better test the quality of the vast old river bed. His iron for the entire track and other necessary machinery to successfully prosecute the work were re ceived by rail here Saturday, and on Mon day were forwarded by wagon train. Mr. McGreggor deserves success, as he is dis playing his usual energy and expending large sums of money in development, which will help many others without risk. The range is at the head of one of the richest little gulches ever worked in Mon tana, and the faith seems well founded that it should pay.— Tranchant. Last week two men found a skeleton in the cabin ot James Robinson, an old time prospector and miner in Lincon gulch, Deer Lodge county. From three missing fingers they identified the bones as the remains of James Robinson him self, who had been missing for three weeks. Some opium being found on the table near the remains, it was concluded that, as Robinson was known to be addic ted to the drug, he had taken an overdose and died alone in his bachelor abode. And the ttfficks of the mountain lions, which are numerous in and around the cabin, showed that the wild beasts of the hills had discovered the unprotected corpse and feasted themselves on human flesh leaving nothing but the bare bones in the cabin. Robinson was about 40 years old and was well known in the territory. Lewistown Argus: A prominent sheep grower of Meagher county, writing to a Helena merchant, says; "The perfidy of the Husbandman in deserting our wool interests and selling out to Clark will be remembered a long time by its be trayed patrons. No act equals it for treachery during the late campaign. Thank heaven, the electors of the county administered a crushing rebuke at the polls." It will l>e remembered that llie Husbandman editor made more noise titan a band of ewes bereft of their lambs immediately after tbe passage of the Mills bill Two column editorials were quite frequent in denouncing free wool. Some time before election the proprietors got a quieting powder of some kind and tbe moss grown concern was as silent as the abode of the dead until its issue after the contest, when it again championed the cause of the woolgrower. A Wasington dispatch states that the agricultural bureau authorized to be es tablished at the last sesssion of congress, and known as a bureau of correspondence with the agricultural stations,has been as signed to quarters in the end of the de partment building and began work under the direction of Prof. Atwater. Bulletins will be published from time to time, set ting out the results of agricultural ex periments in this country and abroad, which shall be distributed among tbe ex perimental stations. A feature of the work will be to engage tbe ablest spec ialists in tiiis country and Europe to compile articles on subjects of infor mation that may be required for general distribution whenever the importance of the subject seems to warrant tbe expense. Still another function of the bureau will be to supply congress with the informa tion that may be found necessary to aid it in legislating upon agricultural matters. Chico School Report.
