It was designed to be sidetracked in small railroad towns and an opportunity given the people to attend evangelical services in the car.

They were taken in charge and esœrted through the city anil sur roundings in carriages provided for the occasion, after which they were accorded the privileges of the club. A rain storm interfered somewhat with the pro gramme, but the visitors spoke highly of the reception accorded them and were agreeably surprised to find here a substantial city where many had ex pected nothing more than a way station on the road to the Park. All were de lighted with the trip and before leaving the Park, through Secretary Page, of the association, presented Assistant Pas senger Agent Austin, of the Northern Pacific, with a handsome diamond pin, valued at $150.

They departed for their homes Saturday night and Sunday morning, a small party going by way of Butte and the Union Pacific. Ilrowueil In the Vellowstone. Tuesday afternoon John Cooney and Charles King visited Justice W. H. Red field's office and notified that official that a man named William Barnes had just been drowned in the Yellowstone river a short distance below the Main street bridge. The story as related is as follows: Wednesday a party of eight persons, including the drowned man, ar rived from the west on their way to seek employment in the wheat fields of North Dakota. Reaching Livingston they con ce ived a plan for floating down the Yel lowstone, and Thursday morning re paired to Gordon Bros, lumber yard where a scow four feet wide and sixteen feet in length was constructed. In this small craft the eight men with a supply of provisions and blankets started just after noon on a voyage of the Yellowstone, launching their boat near the Main Street bridge. Owing to the fact that the boat was heavily loaded and nat urally unwieldy considerable difficulty was experienced in guiding its course. When they reached a point opposite J. R. Nightengale's residence where the current sets strongly to shore the boat was carried under the projecting roots of several large trees which had been ex posed by tne washing of the current dur ing the recent high water. Realizing the danger of the situation a warning cry was raised and all ducked to the bottom of the boat except Barnes, who was in the rear acting as steersman. As the boat swept under Barnes was carried overboard but managed to secure a hold on the roots of the tree and in this manner kept his head above water for several minutes, but not for a sufficient length of time to permit assist ance to reach him. The remainder of the party landed as quickly as possible and started back to relieve their com panion, but were horrified, when within short distance from him, to witness him loosen his hold and sink from view. The next seen of him was when he came to the surface for a moment about forty rods further down the stream, after which he again sank. After giving the above information to Justice Redfield and notifying Coroner Moore at Big Timber the remaining members of the party expreeeed a de termination to never again enter the ill fated craft which was emptied and per mitted to drift with the current. The party will follow the Yellowstone as far as Big Timber in the hope of securing tfie body of their lost companion. Noth ing"ie known of deceased farther than jtSatifee jéinid the party on their way from the ooast at some point near Hel ena, and his statement that his name iron William Barnes and that he came from Montreal, Canada.
