-- GEO. H. WRIGHT, - - - Editor and Proprietor. _____ " ~ okficiai, paper of park COUNTY --—---------- SATURDAY, JULY 18. 1891. Ent<*rfil at th#» poetofllce in l.lvlngston, M. T. « rtHiunrt-claee mail matter. Land Commissioner Carter estimates that North and South Dakota and Mon tana will each receive §20,000 for mon ey due from the 5 per cent, allowed for the sale of public lands in these states since their admission. The count of money and bullion in the United States treasury, consequent on the transfer of the oflice from Hus ton to Xebecker, was concluded Weil nesday. The representatives of the new treasurer state that every cent has l»*en accounted for. Hovemor Toole while in Washing ton the past week applied to the gen eral land oflice for 12,000 plats of differ ent townships in Montana, so that the school boards could make selections of public lands under grants heretofore made for that state. His application will be granted. The Extkkimhsk acknowledges the receipt of a copy of the Journal's Sou venir, published by the Helena Journal company. It is à handsome 32-page, six-column publication, in pamphlit form and contains a large amount of usef ul and valuable information relat ing to Montana's matchless resources. The Souvenir is a credit to its publish ers and the city from which it is issued. The registers and receivers of the local land offices in this state have been telegraphed to hasten their reports for the quarter ending June 30, 1891, show ing the amount of sales ol public land so that a settlement can be made for the percent due the state for the net proceeds of the sale ol public lands within its borders since its admission into the union. It will De some weeks before final sett lement can be secured. The outcome of the contempt pro ceedings in Judge McIIatton's court against the business manager, editor and citv editor of the Helena Journal will be awaited with interest. The matter complained of is undoubtedly ol a character that should properly' have been excluded from the columns of the Journal, but it is questionable whether the court could not better have main tained its dignity by ignoring the pub lication than bv giving it undue prom inence in an action for contempt. Advices from Seattle state that Pres ident Oakes of the Northern Pacific has promised to transport the exhibit of Washington state to the World's Fair free of charge, and in addition to this will carry all county exhibits free of charge to collecting centers. If a simi lar concession could be secured for Mon tana it would materially assist in mak ing the display a credit to this great commonwealth by permitting a much greater portion of the appropriation to he expended in buildings and in col lecting exhibits. The matter should re ceive the attention of the state com missioners and an effort made to give Montana every advantage enjoyed by other states of the northwest. Park county's substantial growth during the past year is clearly evidenced by the largely increased assessment as returned to the county clerk Monday. A total valuation of about eight mil lion dollars, an increase of nearly one hundred per cent in one year, is an ex ceedingly battering showing, and w r hen it is considered that this result is at tained without any special effort apart from the natural and steady growth incident to a development of perman ent resources, is cause for sincere feli citation. Park county is destined to become one of the wealthiest in the state, and as a natural result Living ston, its business center, will be one of the most important cities in the west. Interest will probably again be awak ened in the controversy over members of the Stanley expedition by the publi cation of Captain Deckers statement concerning Stanley. Captain Recker resides in Rrussels and has taken up the cause of llarttelot and Jameson, who it will be remembered Stanley ac cused of negligence of duty and brutal ity while in command of the rear guard in the African expedition. The latter, it is alleged, purchased a girl to be eat en by the natives, ('aptain Becker is trying to prove them innocent of those charges and lately had an interview with Tippoo Tib, who said that Bart telot had been murdered without any reason. Captain Becker also tries to prove the innocence of Jameson in buy ing the girl for the purpose of being eaten. "The good people of the United States would like to know' w'hy ex-Senator Blair feeds out of the public crib at the rate of §1,0(M) per month after he has l>een refused by the Chinese govern ment as our representative to that country. If he is a pauper, who must I» supported by public charity, the peo ple who pay the taxes would like to know it."—Herald. This democratic roorback was exploded two weeks ago, •mt for the information of the Herald which, like all bourbons, is not ex pected to learn or forget anything, w T e will state that Senator Blair drew one month's salary in advance, as the law provides. This was done prior to his departure to enter upon his duties and liefere it was known that his appoint ment did not receive the approval of the Chinese government. Farther than this he has not and will not receive compensation. The democrats of Ohio, in convention at Cleveland Wednesday, renominated Governor Campbell as their guberna torial candidate on the first ballot. A motion to make the nomination unani mous was declared carried by a viva voce vote, but the Hamilton county delegates protested against the an nounceinent, which they greeted by a chorus of noes. It is evident that a lack of harmony among democrats of the Buckeye state will result in an overwhelming republican victory this fall. The nomination of Major Me Kinley upon a platform favoring the protection of American industries was sufficient to ensure his election, but the lack of democratic harmony will largely increase the majority by which he will }>e elected governor." The only redeem ing feature of a long platform adopted by the democrats is a plank favoring the free coinage of silver. Through the courtesy of Senator T. C. Power we are in receipt of the infor mation that Professor B. W. Ever mann left Washington on the 8th inst. to l»egiii an investigation of the waters of Montana with a view of determining a suitable site for a tish hatchery. In connection with this work Professor Everuiann will make a complete study of the streams of the state with the ob ject of determining their conditions and adaptation as related to the habits of the different species of fish it may be desirable to introduce. Senator Power pertinently suggests the advisability of the citizens of Livingston interesting themselves in this matter to the extent at least of appointing a committee to take care of Professor Evermann should he visit this section, as in all T robibility he wiU. The importance of this step need not be urged, as the pub lic spirited enterprise or the people of Livingston will clearly Indicate to them the advantage of having such an insti tution located in this vicinity. But no time should lie lost in taking" action in the matter. A as as i lhe Oerahl this week renews its at- ; tack upon (»oyernor Toole for appoint ! I?? a republican as member of the I " n X\LTh* from Park n-uuuty, auu ine light promises to cul ~ I ' n, n. ate in an interesting partv quarrel. j •>> taras the Enterprise or the repub- j l lean party is concerned the governor's T. for in ____I gov_____ , course is a matter of no concern and we await the outcome with compla eenpy. And while we do not desire to assume the herculean task of defending am member of the democratic party, w e must insist that the action of Gov ernor Toole was commendable and in keeping with the policy outlined by **} a Jd inatters pertaining to tne Monds Fair management. This exposition has been so far conducted upon non-partisan lines and should be so maintained, as it is in no sense a sectional or political affair. It is there fore but just to republicans and demo crats alike that each party have repre sentation upon the board of managers. a J?dthis broad and common sense view of the matter no doubt actuated Gover J}° r I, ,, * n ma king his selections. Ihe Herald can do better service for its party by protesting against the po litical preferment of bolting democrats than by opposing a just division of World's Fair managers between repre sen tat i vos of the tw'o parties. j The peculiar style of argument em ployed by democratic prints to com mend their party to the suffrages of the people has been adopted by the Herald, in its attempt to hold the republican party responsible for the shortcomings of Drew, the Philadelphia bank ex aminer. It says: "Never before in the history of this country, has so many of licals of the government been mixed up in questionable transactions. .Some tresh ollicial stench emits from the seat of government every day, The whole administration seems to be tainted with the means that were used for placing it in power. The Goddess of Liberty will have to be rescued from the "Harpies." Drew has been compelled to withdraw'. It is now in order for the rest of the ad ministration to resign. If this is done probably competent and faithful of ficials can be found who are w'illing to complete the terms of the men now in ollice." The wholesale arraignment of the republican party because of the failure of a minor official to promptly report upon the condition of a bank that afterwards suspended is extremely puerile and shows to what desperate straits the party organs are forced to resort. Especially is this true when it is considered that for his failure to promptly attend to his duties Drew' was summarily dismissed from the public service. In view', however, of the importance attached to this matter it may interesting to the Herald to learn something of the democratic re cord of financial eccentricities, and we therefore refer it to the following list of states whose democratic treasurers have robbed the public of over §3,000, 000: Tennessee, §400,000; Alabama, §243,000; Kentuckr, §247,000, Louisiana, §827,(MX); Mississippi, §315,000; Mary land, §200,000; Missouri, §32,000; Ar kansas, §5X5,000; Delaware, §500, (Km). Pres» Comment. to col re by as one ex at to the of up is to e a a Madisonian: It is barely to be hoped that Helena will soon get in shape to stick an auger in the ground and then stop boring people about her great ar tesian well project. The average Hele naite can usually find what he is look ing after with a tap bore and bung starter. * * * Inter Mountain: And now it is re ported that the linen trade of Ireland is greatly depressed owing to the Mc Kinley bill. If this is true the Irish linen makers might come over to this country, where their skill would find ready "employment at good wages. They would here use American ma chinery and consume American bread stuffs and wear American clothes, and thus the United States would receive all the benefits of a new and prosper ous home industry and a heavy drain to Europe would be'avoided. Boulder Age: The Livingston Her ald absurdly condemns Governor Toole because he has appointed a republican as World's Fair commissioner for Park county. If there is anything more ri diculous than carrying partisanship to such length, The Age does not know what it is. Is the World's Fair to be a democratic institution? Is Montana only to lie known through democratic sources ? Governor Toole as a rule car ries his partisanship entirely too far, and when he makes a little effort to get out of the party rut, he should be praised instead of blamed for it. * * * Mining Review: Some enterprising Chicago reporters have be been saying that they had interviewed .Senator Power, of this state, and that he was opposed to the free coinage of silver. Senator Power says that the reporters who pretended to interview him never saw him. A paper should be liable to be mulcted in heavy damages which would publish an interview with any one, without submitting the prool to the one interviewed. The majority of the interviews published in the papers are wholly false, and often the reporter carelessly or intentionally misrepresents what was said when a real interview takes place. It is time such outrages were stepped. * * * Salt Lake Tribune: We do not ex pect that James G. Blaine will be nom inated for president. We do not ex pect he will because we think at the critical time he will decline, doubting his own physical ability to stand the wear and tear of another campaign. But he has reached the position that onlv one man before in the United States reached. No matter in what state it may be—what state or territory— wherever a squad of republicans come together, whether in a cluster of citi zens or in great conventions, the name of James G. Blaine strikes them like a trumpet call, and the response is un affected admiration for the wonderful man. No man has been more grossly abused; no man has been more shame fully traduced; no man has been more relentlessly maligned: and yet the per sonality c f Janies G. Blaine shines out over all, and when his namç is spoken the response is instantaneous, and speak his name on the shores of Maine, and the people "following the sun and keeping company with the hours" will take it and bear it on until the last echo dies far out over the waters of the Pacific. He does not need to be presi dent. It would not add to his fame. He would have to bend to take the commission; because, while his earlier life had a few mistakes, while his quar rel with the great New Yorker was for years the destruction of both men, still, the inherent patriotism and valor of the man remains, and recognizing that the hearts nf the people throb in unison with his heart and they say to them selves: "He is at this hour tije most perfect realization of the true Ameri can that stands upon the earth today," * * * in is of of on In 788 * * Minneapolis Journal: Col. John A. Nicolay is not infallible. In the cur rent controversy about Hamlin's can didacy in 1864 he professes to have been the special receptacle into which Mr. Lincoln poured his confidences. A good many other people have made the same claim, and all such claims must be taken with several grains of allowance. Mr. Lincoln was a great man, a great central figure in a great national struggle and tragedy, and many would naturally like to be known as his confidential friends. Rev. E. D. NeU, of Micalester college, in this state, was Lincoln's private secretary at one time, and he probably knows as mueh as Col. Nicolay about Hr. Lincoln's views as to Hamlin or anybody else. But none of these gentlemen know more than the public did about this Hamlin and Johnson candidacy for the at- ; vice presidency, at the time. It was a matter of public knowledge in 18t>4 that Mr. Lincoln did favor the candi dacy of Johnson. This preference grew out of his noble and conciliatory nature. He believed that if a southern inan was j placed on the republican ticket it would tend to mollify the dreadful bitterness! , .... growing out of the civil war. There! cannot be the slightest doubt of Lin to coin's interest in the Johnson candi dacy. It was accepted as an expedient and nearly everybody living in 18)54 and keeping in touch w ith the occur in to a ranees of the day, knows it was perfect ly understood that Lincoln preterred Johnson for very noble reasons. If he ! had not, Johnson would never have re ceived the nomination. That is perfect ly certain whatever Col. Nicolay may assert to the contrarv. KILLING AT UILWOKTII. J. K. Dltwurth Shot and Instantly Killed by Godfrey Deiner#. News was received in this city Friday night of last week that James R. Dil worth, president of the Dilworth Cattle company andean old and respected citi zen of eastern Park county, had been killed near his home by Godfrey De mere, a man known in that section as j "Frenchy." The trouble which led to a fatal termination grew out of a disputed claim to hay land. It appears that the Dilworth company had enclosed a large tract of land for the purpose of securing the hay crop, and that on Saturday pre vious to the shootiug Demers came to Livingston and tiled upon a portion of the land as a homestead. Returning to Red Lodge he secured the services of a man named Leo Ferguson, whom he hired to help in cutting hay. The two men pitched a tent upon the upper end of Dilworth 's enclosure, on the strip of land filed upon by Demers. Friday morning John Warren, an employe of Dilworth, went to the field to cut hay and was met by Demers, who informed him that the land belonged to him and he wanted him to stop cutting hay upon it. Warren informed the Frenchman that he was working for Dilworth and would go up to the house and consult his en ployer, which he did. He was told to go back to work and Dilworth mounted a horse and went down in the field and met Demers. The story of what followed is told by Ferguson, the man employed by Demers. He says that Dilworth rode up to Demers' tent when the latter covered him with Winchester rifie. Dilworth asked him what he meant to do with the rifle. De mers replied: "Protect my property. Dilworth then spurred up his horse, with the evident intention of taking the ritte away from Demers, when the latter shot him through the neck, severing the jugular vein and killing him almost in stantly. The body of the dead man was cared for by the men who were cutting hay in another part of the enclosure but who witnessed the tragedy from distance. It w'as taken to his home and relatives of the family summoned by telegraph. A courier was dispatched to Red Lodge, fifteen miles distant, for a physician and with notice to the coro ner. Justice A. P. McAnnelly of Red Lodge conducted an inquest and the jury returned a verdict of death by shock. The body was taken to Boz.e man, where the funeral took place from the residence of A. K. Yerkes, his son in-law, Wednesday afternoon. After the shooting Demers went to Red Lodge and gave himself up tw the authorities, andin response to a telegram Sheriff Templeton and County Attorney Joy we at to that place to assist iu con ducting a preliminary examination. The examination was held before Justice A P. McAnnelly, beginning Monday and occupying the time of the court until Wednesday morning. The evidence bearing upon the commission of the crime was confined chiefly to Demers and his man Ferguson, who were the only eye witnesses to the killing. They testified that Dilworth attempted to ride his horse over Demers, and failing to do so made an effort to draw h is re volver, but whs anticipated in this by Demers, who brought his rifle into re quisition with fatal results. Upon the evidence Justice McAnnelly decided to hold the prisoner to the district court, but admitted him to bail in the sum of 83,000. From the Bozeman Chronicle we learn that James I 83,000. From the Bozeman Chronicle we learn that James R. was the third son of Mrs. Harriet Dilworth, residing at Fort Scott, Kansas, who met a violent deatl One was picked off by a sharpshooter while serving in the commissary depart ment of the regular army. Another was shot by a desperado at a political meeting, without cause, and suffered for his crime in the penitentiary of Kan sas. The Chronicle also contains the following biographical sketch of de ceased: "James R. Dilworth was 54 years of age. He was born in Oxford county, Pa. At an early age he went to Leav enworth, Kansas, where he built and op erated one of the first flouring mills of that region. He afterwards ran a freight train to Denver in its earliest days. Then he embarked in the hardware and furniture business at Fort Scott, Kan sas. In 1881 he went to Oregon, pur chased a band of cattle and organized the Dilworth Cattle company, which is still in existence. After living in Boz.e man for two years he moved to his ranch on the Clark's Fork river, near the boun dary line of Wyoming and thirteen miles from what is now known as the town of Red Lodge. He was an absolutely fear less man and was never known to shirk danger in any form. Most of his life was spent on the frontier and he was one of the very first freighters to come to Montana. Mr. Dilworth was a Chris tian, being a member of the Presbyte rian church of Bozeman. Besides his wife he leaves an infant son, Johnny, 10 years of age; two daughters, Lottie and Mattie, the former, who had just ar rived from school to spend her vacation; George and Charlie, and Mrs. F. W. Van Allen and A. K. Yerkes of this city. Besides these he leaves two brothers, a sister and an aged mother to mourn his untimely end." The census bureau has issued a bul letin on the distribution of populatii n in accordance with altitude, in which it appears that in the area below 500 feet is included nearly all that part of the Imputation which is engaged in manu factoring and in the foreign commerce of the country, and most of that en gaged In the culture of cotton, rye and sugar. The interval between 500 and 1,500 feet comprises the greater part of the prairie estates and the grain pro ducing states of the north west. East of the 5t8th meridian, 1,500 feet is prac tically the limit of population, all the country lying above that elevation be ing mountainous. The population lie tween 2,000 and 3,000 is found mainly on the slope of the great western plains. In this region the belt between 2,(KX) and 3,000 feet is almost everywhere the debatable ground between the arid re gion of the Cordilleran plateau and the humid region of the Mississippi valley, Alaska is about 2,000 feet. The aver age elevation at which the inhabitants lived, taking cognizance of their distri bution, was 687 feet in 1870. In 1880 it had increased to 739 feet, and in 1890 to 788 feet. Bradstreets: A new edition of the Revised Statutes of the United States is very much needed. The last revision of the statutes was made at the first session of the forty-third congress in for though a new edition of the Revised Statutes was prepared in 1878, it was not, as the commissioner who had charge of the work said, in any proper Bense a new revision of the statutes of the United States. Supple ments have been issued since then, but they are inconvenient in use and are now thoroughly antiquated.

The efforts are beginning to show results, and thev are more gratifying than it was expected they would be. and the officers are well satisfied that the policy is a good one. Further tests of American armor plate were made at the Annapolis prov ing grounds last Saturday with gratify ing results. Two threè-inch all steel plates had been prepared by Carnegie, with surfaces treated by the new Har vey process. To give the process a complete test under better conditions than heretofore realized the plates were made with less carbon in their com position than the three plates tested some months ago. The official report lias not yet been received, but the of ficers present say the plates satisfac torily resisted fire from a six-pound Hotchkiss rifle, a severe test. The superintendent of immigration at New York reports that 405,(954 im migrants arrived at that port during the past fiscal year, compared with 328, (591 during the previous fiscal year. Of last year's arrivals 74,382 came from Germany, 70,71)5 from Italy, 35,424 from Ireland, 33,504 from Russia and the ot h ers from other countries of Europe and Asia. It is estimated that 80 per cent of all immigrants land at New York. Nearly 170,(XX) of the immigrants in question settled in New York state and 5)5,000 in Pennsylvania, the next larger numbers going to Illinois and Michi gan. One-third of the immigrants are laborers.
