The greater part of the village of Brou don, Switzerland, has been destroyed by fire and many cattle burned to death. The fire was ignited by a mad man. The checker contest between Barker, the American player, and Smith, has been concluded. The score of the games stood: Baker, 5; Smith, 1; drawn, 25. The negotiations between the English and Chinese governments have resulted in an agreement by which the Indian government will have control of the prov ince of Sikkim. Schaeffer, a Bohemian who murdered three people with dynamite on Monday morning at Gilman, Wash. Ty., was lynched in the afternoon by the infuriated gold miners. Permission has been granted by the privy council at Ottawa to the Manitoba government to cross the tracks of the Canadian Pacific under certain restrict ions. No further obstacle will be inter posed by the Canadian Pacific. A telegram was roeeived at the navy department from Rear Admiral Luce, at Kingston. Jamaica, sayiDg that regard for the health of the officers and men on the steamer Galena requires two more ships for relief during the Häytien rebellion. In a ease appealed from Iowa the su preme court of the United States ren dered a decision that a state has the right to pass a law compelling railroads to fence their lines, and failing to do so, to pay double the value for stock run over and killed. Judge Andrews, in the supreme court of New York, dismissed the writ of hab eas corpus obtained by Ann Odelia Dis de Bar, the "spook" princess, to obtain possession of her children in care of the society for protection of children, and decided not to allow her to get possession of them. The city editor and business manager of the Chicago Times have been arrested on a charge of criminal libel. The of fense consisted of the publication of an interview with the wife of Detective Lowenstein, in which she charged her husband with acting as a "fence" for thieves, and alleging that Police Captain Schaack was cognizant of the fact. The Irish agitation still continues. Twenty tenants ou the Yaqdeleur estates, Kilrush, have been arrestetf for barricad ing houses against officials carrying out evictions. The arrests caused much ex citement. The number of policemen de tailed to protect Balfour has been in creased in consequence of the report that the Invincibles were planning to murder bim. On Monday, on the arrival at Van couver of the steamer Premier from Seat tle, the health officer found a man named Thomas, a member of the J. S. Murphy Theatrical company, suffering from small pox.

Chief Engineer Arthur iias been clos eted with the members of the conference committee and the terms of the settle ment were formally submitted to him. The terms of the truce have not yet been made public. It is considered probable, however that the chief points agreed upon are that the "Q" shall take the Brother hood men back as last as vacancies occur iu the ranks, and that the black list shall be done away with. A dispatch from Toronto dated January 7th says: It was arranged to-day that the Kilrain-Sulhvan fight shall be for $10,000 and the championship belt, held by Kilrain, to take place July 7th, near New Orleans.

A special to the Pioneer Press from Yankton, Dak., says: The statehod ex ecutive committee has issued a call for a delegate convention of counties in South ern Dakota January 16th for the purpose of taking steps to further statehood for South Dakota. The committee believes South Dakota's chances at Washington are wanting and many fear two or three years will elapse before admission is achieved. It is urged that action be takce at the present congress and in case such is not done the strongest pressure possible be brought to bear to secure an extra session for the purpose of admitting the state. There is on trial in the United States district court in St. Paul a very important case involving about $6,000,000. It is an action against the Northern Pacific railway, brought by the government, charging that ever since the road has been built it has been trespassing upon govern ment lands along its line, denuding the government timber lands and causing great loss and damage to the government. The encroachments are alleged to extend to lands and timber in various parts of Idaho, Washington Territory, Montana and Minnesota. Judge Moody of Dead wood has arrived in Washington from Indianapolis, where he had a consultation with President-elect Harrison as to the prospects of action on the territorial statehood bill now pending, and also the extra session of the Fifty first congress. Judge Moody declined to quote General Harrison on anything, but predicts that no action is likely to be taken on the "omuibus" or any bill with a view to the creation of a new state by this congress, and that there will be an extra session of the Fifty-first congress called, to convene about J une 1st. of the ing and to at A. for by of see a of it The Germans are having a pietty hard time in Suakini. A dispatch from Zan zibarsays: The blockading of Suakim lias been unfortunate. The German cor vette Schwalbe, with tlie admiral on board, ran aground on a coral reef Friday and was pulled off with great difficulty Sunday. The man of war Moewe and the British gunboat Woodcock are dis abled at Dar Es Salam. Fever continues to rage among the crews of the German squadron and deaths are frequent. Tlie commissioner of agriculture has transmitted to congress the report by Joseph Neumann on the wild native silk worm of California. Neumann asked that the„ appropriation of $2,500, made last year to enable him to study the nature of the silk worm, be increased to $25,000 as necessary to establish temporary ob servatory stations wherever the food plant on which the worm feeds exists in quan tities. He predicts "by continuing the study it will not be many years before this discovery of mine of the native silk worm will be the greatest blessing ever conferred upon the people of the civilized world."

The supreme court of the territory of Montana for the January term went into session Monday morning, the 7th, all the judges present. Chronicle : A young man known as Janies Martin, who lias worked on the Northern Pacific railroad for the past three years, near Bozeman, and lias for some time been foreman of a section at Central Park, committed suicide at the Tivoli on Friday morning. On Sunday the Helena Typographical Union voted that newspapers after Junu ary 14th shall not use any matter fur nished by tlie American Press association except on the payment of a penalty to printers employed of the fnll price charged for composition. Gordon, the Benton murderer, has been granted a reprieve until March 1st. He was to have been hung on January 11th, and has asked for a commutation to im prisonment for life. As the testimony was quite voluminous, the governor has taken two months to think if over. Montany paid during the year 1888 $3,318,600 in dividends to her mine owners. This is over one-fourth of the total dividends paid by mines in the United States and Mexico, and is the earnings of only nine of the many paying mining companies in the territory. The Butte hoard of trade have met for the purpose of finding means for dispos ing of the smelter smoke. A communi cation from E. Grenier was read on the subject of various ways of disposing of it, and was referred to a committee appointed to interview the smelter men and report at a subsequent meeting. The Montana Lumber and Manufac turing company has filed articles of in corporation with Secretary Webb. The object of tlie company is to do a general timber business. The incorporators are A. M. Holter, W. II. Gebauer and Wil liam Thomson. The capital stock is $200,000 and place of business Helena. There is still another hitch in the re covery of Godas. It seems the warrant issued by the governor general of Canada authorizes the authorities to give up Godas to James M. Hathaway only. A new warrant will have to be issued in the name of Sheriff Jeffries. This will delay for another month or so the return of the much advertised Godas. Chronicle : An effort is being made by some of our influential citizens, through Hon. J. K. Toole, to get the Ellis reservation appropriated for educational purposes, with some show of success. San Antonio, Tex., and Baton Rouge, La., have lately been granted similar privi leges, and there is every reason to believe that Gallatin county will be made the re cipient of such legislation consideration. The idleness of the Ellis reservation is a standing reproach. Herald : There is going to be a strong sentiment in favor of some re-enactment of a bounty law for the destruction ef wolves, bears and mountain lions. We apprehend the only difference will be whether the bounty should be paid by the counties or the territory. We favor the county system as best, for then the people chiefly benefited will pay the bounty and can make it more or less and see that only those who earn the bounty get it. Coal is coming into general use on the upper Judith. Corwin & Co. are finding a ready market in that vicinity. There will be a demand for it in Lewistown next winter if it can be laid down at a reasonable figure. There is a fair quality of coal on upper Spring creek. A. Pott and W. H. Hunter have claims which they intend to develop during the year, and believe they will produce as good a quality of coal as can be found in the Judith Basin. Wood is so cheap that good coal must be found near by to bring it into general use as fuel at this point. Julius E. Hart, bookkeeper for J. G. Murphy & Co. of Helena*, blew his brains out with a revolver last Monday morning. The rash deed was committed in his own home, almost m the presence of his wife. Despondency from sickness was said to have been the cause. Mr. Hart was about forty years ot age and had been in the territory about twelve years. He was formerly a resident of Bozeman and was married there to a Miss Frazier, his pres ent wife. Mr. Hart was well and favor ably known throughout the territory and t of to so to the ing rel. ic.i his be of on it in a had many friends who will be shocked and grieved to learn of his sudden and horrible death. The Grand Hotel Lottery of Billings is at last materialized. Tlie prizes are valued at $75,000 and there are 15,000 tickets at $5 each to be sold. Tlie drawing t ikes place April 15th. Independent: Aarticles of incorpor ation of the Bozeman Artesian Well com pany have been filed with the territorial secretary. The purposes for which the company is organized are selling, renting and dealing in all kinds of tools, machin ery, and implements to lie used for boring wells for gas, oil and water. Capital stock $10,000. Directors, J. Mendenhall, L. (S. Wilson, J. M. Lindley, E. 8. Owen house, N. P. Clark. T. C. Burns, Louis Kruger, E. M. Gardner, G. W. Higlismith, A special to the Independent from Butte says: Tlie entire plant at tlie Smelter City is now in operation. The Montana Union railway is running from 2,500 to 2,800 tons of ore daily to the works, as well, as plenty of fuel, and unless some unforeseen calamity occurs the great plant will continue in uninter rupted operation for along time to come. During the year just closed Butte pro duced in the aggregate $7,000,000. Dur ing the week just ended five quartz mills, the Alice, Bluebird, Butte, Boston and Moulton and Lexington have shipped silver bars by express aggregating $234, 330. the biggest shipment for a single week in the history of the camp. Herald: Judge De Wolfe has decided the Missoula shrievalty contest in favor of Daniel J. Heyfron, the democratic con testant of the election of Cain Mahoney, the republican candidate for sheriff at the recent election, who was declared elected by the canvassing board by a majority of forty. The court holds that six votes not counted at Nixon precinct should he ad mitted for Heyfron; that the election in the Evaro precinct was illegal, because the polls were held three miles from the place designated, and that the precinct should be thrown out altogether; that sixty votes at Bonner precinct were illegal and should be thrown out. The result of the decision is the finding of twelve votes majority for Heyfron. It is said Mahoney will appeal the case. River Press: Old residents will re member that the winter of 1877-8 was so mild that there was not even a thin coat ing of shore ice along the banks of the Missouri river at this place, In order to get ice for packing that winter teams had to be sent out to the Teton, where some quiet water holes were frozen over. No swift running water was covered that sea son with a coating of ice. This winter so far is following in the same line. The Missouri river is still open, with only a small quantity of shore ice, which formed during the past few days. A few hours' chinook would cause every vestige of snow and ice io disappear. This is liable to occur at any time, as indications are favorable. Publication Notes. While the December numbers of the magazines were beautifully gotten up, the January numbers of them ail give promise of greater artistic and literary merit during the vear 1889 than that of 1888. The Century magazine for this month contains a continuation of the interest ing 1 fe of Lincoln in the shape of a letter written to Mr. W, G. Anderson, with whom he had had a personal quar rel. The letter shows better than any biography the true character of the martyr president, and is an interesting contribution to contemporaneous liter ature. Au article by the artist F rerier ic.i Remington on the "Horses of the Plains," which is fully illustrated with his spirited and life like sketches, will be read with interest, not only by plainsmen, but by people in the east, who will thus get a much better idea of what composes our celebrated west ern broncho. Mr. Remington writes as easily as lie sketches and his style is very simple and readable. An article on "Pagan Ireland" and others equally interesting go to make up an unusually attractive number. * * * The American Magazine contains its usual grist of good matter which makes it one of the most entertaining publica tions that comes to our table. One of the interesting features is a story en titled "Christmas at Tin Cup," a tale of western life, which is very true to na ture. A number of short poems of un usual excellence are scattered through the magazine. The literary comments and reviews are replete with good hints for intending book readers and are epi gramatic and interesting. The January number of Frank Les lie's Sunday Magazine, coming out be fore the holidays, very properly and pleasantly devotes some of its pages to Christmas scenes, stories and poems Beginning with a beautiful poem by G. A. Davis, entitled "Under the Mistletoe, A. D. 1187." There is also an article, "From Bethlehem to Calvary," with four full page pictures of actual scenes in the Holy Land from recent photo graphs, a very interesting article on the "Legend of the Holy Grail," and a caus tic one on "The Firm of Push & Pull," by Dr. Talmage. The serial story, "Genevieve," is continued, and there are two short stories, besides many short articles, bright poems and beauti ful pictures. * . * * The Overland Monthly for the first month of the new year is full of useful information as well as many articles of a lighter character. "Christmas on the Arkansaw" is a charming Christmas story of Colorado cowboy life, and the familiar plot of the child in camp is here given in new coloring and \fith a charm of style that makes it delightful. Pius vEneas as a cowboy is certainly a J E ! J J C 1 S F F C J J I T A J D a I is a a striking combination. The book re views of poetry, biography, holiday and children s books till more than usual space, and are as usual readable and val uable. Poetry, sketches and the de partments complete a tine number of this old and favorite periodical. * After the moral and religious educa tion of the family, we know of nothing that will confer a more lasting and per manent benefit than that most instruct ive and at the same time entertaining periodical, the Scientific American. It should be a visitor in every home, where its work will be found not to be idle. It is of special value to the ma chinist, the engineer and the mechanic, but it is of equal value to the farming and mercantile community, and to all who are or an inventive or ingenious turn of mind. It will be found invalu able to those, whether young or old, who are fond of using tools as a recre ation. * * * The Northwest Magazine is continu ing its good work iu publishing to the world tlie resources of Montana, and E. \ . Smalley, the able editor, promises its readers still more about Montana than has heretofore appeared. Heavy Tax Payers of Dark County.

A cyclone passed over Reading, Pa., Wednesday evening, doing great damage and killing more than fifty people. A silk mill in which 250 girls were employ ed, blew down just before the hour for quitting work. Everything was in con fusion. About the same time was an ex plosion and lire in the same neighbor hood, by which eight men were burned to death. This was the saddest night in the history of Reading. Hundreds of households are in mourning as the result of one ot the greatest calamities in Penn sylvania. Tlie cyclone swept over the northern section of the city this afternoon and laid waste everything within its reach with a terrible loss of life. The lives that have been sacrificed and the number that have been injured can only be estimated. The most reliable computation is that not less than sixty persons have been killed out right and 100 injured. Inter Mountain, 7tli : To-day is a big pay day in the camp.
