Clarkson or Senator Allison is sure to' have a seat in Harrison's cabinet. Patsy Cardiff and Jim Fell fought a fifteen round contest on last Tuesday in Minneapolis. Cardiff's friends claimed a foul and the referee gave him the fight on that ground. Neither man was badly punished. The general offices of the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha railway were partially destroyed by fire in St. Paul last Friday. Several clerks jumped from the second story and were severely injured. Loss about $40,000. The secretary of war transmitted to congress a letter from General Casey, chief of engineers, stating it would cost $200,000 to make a twenty foot channel in the Willamette river between Portland and Oswego, Oregon, De Lesseps has issued a rircular invit ing subscription for 60,000 of the 500 franc shares of the new Panama Canal company. The shares are to be issued at par, payable in three installments. The subscriptions close February 2d. At eight o'clock Monday morning a fire was discovered in the St. Paul Grand Opera House. It originated in the gen tlemens' coat room during the absence of the night watchmen at 9. It is a com plete iuin. Only the walls remain stand ing. Loss on opera house $200,000. The officers of the steamer Dawes which arrived at Evansville on Sunday, report a disastrous wreck of the Louisville, St. Louis and Texas railroad bridge, across the Green river at Shottsville, Ken tucky, eighteen miles above this city, in which a dozen men were drowned. A bill has been introduced in congress to^mend the present naturalization law The present requirement of the declara tion of intention to become a citizen is dispensed with. Otherwise it is about the same. A residence of five years in the United States is required of an alien. A lengthy memorial to the president and congress of the United States passed the New Mexico legislative assembly last Friday by a unanimous vote, praying for the admission of this territory to the union of states, A committee will be appointed to convey the memorial to Washington. The correspondent of the Pioneer Press sends that paper a long array of figures and extracts from the financial reports re garding the financial condition of the territory, shewing the general fund to have been overdrawn $27,000, and the bond fund used to meet the drafts. He further says the territorial treasury is bankrupt. The sub-committee on foreign affairs in congress has reported to the full com mittee recommending the adoption of Edmund's Panama Canal resohition, though indicating at the same time that the phraseology of the resolution was not such as was fully approved by the sub-corn mittee. After a discussion in full com mittee the matter went over till Thursday. The conferees on the Nicaragua bill have agreed. The following house amendments, it is believed, have been dropped or modified: Requiring that 10 per cent of the capital stock be paid up before any bonds are sold; providing f or printing across the face of the bonds that TTnifwl ic ™ : notice that the United States is not re sponsiDle for them, and allowing the United States to fix the rates of tolls on the canal. The presidential electors of Texas neglected to sign their names on the envelop containing the vote of Texas. Gov. Ross immediately telegraphed all the electors to meet at Austin at once and prepare another return. There is some chance of not being able to do this in time, as some of the electors live in remote parts of the state. If there is a delay on their part or even a loss of two hours' time on the part of the mes senger, the count will have to be made without Texas. Secretary Whitney, authorized by the president, has sent several armed vessels to Samoa to protect American interests on that island. Recent reports show that se rious outrages have been committed there by the Germans, and in all probability there will some trouble result which will require arbitration, as our government will probably demand satisfaction. Mil itary authorities say that the United States has far the best of the situation owing to the fact that they could land a laige body of troops there on short no tice. The Associated Press is responsible for a sensational telegram which says that the disclosures of the Chicago Times in re gard to the character of Inspector Bon field and Captain Schaack, give rise to suspicions as to who were the real bomb throwers at the Hay market riot. The dis patch says: It was on the evidence of these officers and certain ones associated with them that seven men were con demned to the gallows a year and a half ago, for crimes which they to the last pro tested they did not commit. Indeed, it was openly charged that the Haymarket bomb, instead of being thrown by an archists, was thrown by one of Pinkerton's men for purposes which time alone might disclose. Was the allegation true, and is the prophecy to be verified so soon? That it was a dastardly act can hardly be doubted, and it is to be hoped the truth will one day be divulged, even with all its hideousness. The delegations from both South and North Dakota, who bave been in Wash ington urging the passage of the senate bill for the admsssion of South Dakota and an enabling act for North Dakota, feel very much dissatisfied with the pro visions of the Springer omnibus bill which passed the house to-day. They are all united in saying it will merely serve to delay the admission of South Dakota and render useless all that has been done since the organization of the movement for admission five years ago. They are going to ask the senate to re ject it, and are willing to take their chances with the new congress, hoping aud expecting that an extra session will be called by the president-elect when he takes office. The delegation regard the provisions of the bill unfair in a political sense and unsafe for material interests of the territory. he in' L. by to to et the site the of one the the but the has for the a an ed it to a a MONTANA NEWS.

Frank Shcpley of Helena and John Cronin of Mijssoula fought a six-round battle at Missoula last Saturday. Shep ley won. A man named Joseph Lee was found dead alongside of the railroad track just west of Boz.eman, on Thursday week. The coroner's jury found that the man was probably murdered, but no evidence was obtained pointing to the guilty par ties. Fifty horses from a band recently seized by the Canadian customs authori ties for infraction of the customs laws at Fort McLeod have been stolen and driven back toward Montana. They were traced as far as Whoopup by the police, who were going to Fort Benton, but were or dered back. Tlios. Couch, superintendent of the B. & M. Smelting company, is credited with the purchase of the Robert Vaughn fine stock ranch at Sun River. The price was $46,000. This includes quite a number of high bred cattle and horses, as well as what is called one of the finest stock ranches in the territory. The sixty-stamp silver mill of the Alice company in Butte lias started up again in full force, having been partially idfc for several months. The Alice has eighty stamps, and it is thought that all of them will be dropping on Alice ore within thirty days. The Alice has not been in full operation for nearly two years. John P. Freeman of Radersburg on Friday of last week shot and killed liob't Hosfeld, a rancher of that section. IIos feld had been many years a resident of that valley, leaves a wife and several children and was a highly respected citi zen. Freeman was a man of about 24 years of age and had a small bunch of cattle on a ranch on the north fork of the Mussleshell. He was crazy drunk when he committed the deed and did not real ize what he had done for twelve hours after the occurrence. Journal: The Miles City syndicate who own a group of promising prospects in' the Cooke City mining district have recently purchased the remaining half of the Nevada mine, the other half having been owned by them. The purchase was made by Messrs. C. W. Anderson and C, L. Merrill for the syndicate in which they are interested. Rumor has it that the advent of a railroad will make this one of the largest mining camps in Montana; the question of transportation being now the only obstacle to its development. Record : Godas, the Montana mur derer, on his way to Helena, accompanied by Sheriff Jefferis, made a desperate ef fort to escape from the train while it stood at the Manitoba depot in Winnipeg. Notwithstanding the heavy shackles which burdened him he jumped from the plat form of the car, thence crawling on his knees underneath the train, moving a con siderable distance before he was captured. Upon approach Godas made some resist ance, defying the officer and remarking that he would never go back to Helena alive. After a lively tussle and the threatening position of a six-shooter, he meekly succumbed, going peacefully back to the car. A special to the Independent from Washington says: Next Friday the sec retary of the interior will give a hearing to the attorneys representing J. W. Allen et al. vs. the attorney in fact of Joseph Merrill et al, The case involves the val idity of certain locations of Sioux half breed scrip on lands along the Northern Pacific. The case was made special upon the representations of the attorneys that certain of the scrip claims covered the site of the town of Glendive, Montana. Locations of the same scrip have been made in various other places along the road, the same questions appearing in all the cases. The scrip, it is claimed, was located at Glcndive prior to the location of the townsite. Charles and William B. King will argue for the scrip owners in one case, and Curtis and Burdctt will rep resent the others. New Northwest: It is announced in the Butte papers that Superintendent Dickinson of the Montana Union has re signed, and it is probable that Mr. Robert Law, now assistant general manager of the Northern Pacific at Helena, will be appointed in his place in February. Mr. Dickinson was only appointed here tem porarily. but has remained eighteen months under much personal inconven ience. He expects to remain in Montana, but does not now indicate definitely his purposes. Both Mr. Dickinson and Mr. Law are rated first class railroad men, but the Montana Union is a hard road to han dle. It is a kind of step-son to both the Union and Northern Pacific companies, has immense work to do, is illy provided for by both parents and gets more kicks and cuffs than favors. To be superin tendent of it is as it was to be governor of Utah a few years ago, and it is no wonder these officers are very ready to let go. Independent : An enterprise of consid erable magnitude is now under way at the Jay Gould mine. It is the boring of a tunnel 4,300 feet, or nearly a mile in length, in the mountain where this rich property is located. This is probably the biggest undertaking of its kind ever at tempted in the territory, and will involve an outlay of $50,000. The work has al ready begun and will be prosecuted with vigor until completed, which it is expect ed will be within sixteen months. It is being driven some 500 feet below the lower level of the mine, which is down 525 feet from the surface. This tunnel will be across cut through country rock, it being expected to tap the vein at the distance mentioned. An air compressor will furnish ventilation for the miners as soon as required and drills will be used for boring. When this work shall have been completed an upraise will be made to connect with the main workings. At present there are 3,000 feet of levels in by one the ing act to 1, act of resi a at the Jay Gould. It is one of the best pay ing mines in Montana, having in the pas twelve months paid $233.000 in divi dends, the ore being treated in a ten stqmp mill. When the present work is completed the milling capacity will be largely increased. The mine is owned by Helena men, among them being Messis. Downs, Allen and Davis.
