Have you seen the show? What is your candid opinion of the Great Falls LEADER? The Great Falls LEADER is a republi an paper-"did you notice it?" There is no reason why Great Falls an not have a good Fourth of July. Mr. William Albrecht, who was in jured by a runaway sometime ago is con valescing. Mr. Dean, one of the proprietors of the Sand Coulee coal mines, is at the Mil waukee house. Go to W. P. Beachley's, corner Central avenue and Fourth street for stationery, blank books, etc. bridge as magnificent and durable as the one at Great Falls. Messrs. Ringwald & Carrier have just put a very fine perpetual calendar clock in the First National bank. Mr. J. J. Gibbons, our enterprising harness maker, will soon be possession of a Mosler, Vahmann & Co. safe. All who are fond of being upon the water will find at J. D. Taylor's bout house pleasure boats to suit them. Mr. J. H. Walker is stopping at the Milwaukee house. He is an engineer and machinist and is desirous of locating here. We trust that the "Dollie-Varden-has got-a-new-hat-articles, will be conspic uous in this paper only because of their absence. The verlict returned by the jury in the Havens trial was "murder in the second degree." There is a motion pending for a new trial. If any one desiring to invest his money would put up some good houses here he could readily have them occupied by good tenants. The Milwaukee house can justly boast of the excellency of its culinary depart ments as well as 3f the character of its ac commodations. Messrs. Ashby & Co. are sending out a great many agricultural implements that are intended to be utilized in develop ing this country. A few of our young gentlemen ale be coming adepts in the use of the gloves, and find their friendly contests fine sport ': and good exercise. Mrs. A. D. Wellington is a guest at the Milwaukee house. She expects to en gage in business here if a suitable hala tion can be found. Messrs. Barnes & Collett are to be con gratulated for having made the first ad dition to Great Falls. The name of such ; addition is Fairview. A street fight is not of frequent ocou ance in this town, but occasionally the coarse man is amused and the sensitive shocked by witnessing one. Work upon the great smelter is being ipushed with assiduity by an army of laborers. Such being the case its early c'onsummation is looked for. No one visiting this town should fail to see the Giant Springs, Rainbow Falls and the Great Falls. A trip to those places is sure to be attended with great pleasure. We are sorry to say that there are some fellows around this town that are of no use on earth. They had better leave the earth or seek a future in its bowels. If a person was in the mood to joke he might give this conumdrum: "Why do Idoctors come to such a healthy country?" and some one might jokingly reply "for their health." It might be said, in a carless metaphor ical manner, that Great Falls will soon have discarded the swaddling clothes of infanthood and donned the habiliments of maturer years. Great Falls, if it does not now, soon will need a strong and durable hall, having a seating capacity of 800 or 1000 persons, to be used on all occasions necessitating a large assembly. The Missouri river at this point has afforded good fishing for some time past, and many have aviled them selves of the opportunity to hook a few of the finny tribe. There are some men in every town, who, as it were, hang on to the tail end of an enterprise, and are slow to appre ciate anything, unless it is the fact, that like other assinegos they are always behind. S When the water from the Giant Springs is piped into this city, no other city iu the world will have such pure wholesome water. This is something that can reasonably be expected and its coming will be hera'ded with great joy. Mr. B. F. Dugan of Correctiouville, Iowa, is stopping at the Milwaukee house. He is very much impressed with the town Sof Great Falls, and says tnat he will like ly locate here. Mr. Dugan has been en gaged in the banking business. It is hoped that those who are in position to advertise, and wish to do so judiciously, will recognize the advisabil dlon't want our columns filled with advertisements, but we do want our share of the citizens' patronage, A recent article published in a news. paper in Great Falls endeavored to give a graphic account of a "locomotive com Ing around a corner." Should this chance to meet the eye of the writer of said arti cle, will he or she elucidate; otherwise ambiguity must predominate. It is a recognized feature of the Mis souri river that at Great Falls it affords one of the most available and potent water powers in the world. There is no inter mediary obstacle to keep Great Falls from rivaling in importance as a metrop olis the great City of Minneapolis. Why is Montana called the "heart of the continent?" Because of its advantages for stock raising, farming, mining and other industries, its climate, soil, re sources and inspiring scenery, magnificent mountains, lbeautiful, fertile valleys, and opportunities for health and prosperity. Mr. C. T. Day, representing Gilchrist Bros. & Edgar, has moved the lumber yard from Fourth avenue South to Ninth avenue North and railroad track. Mr. Day has just received several carloads of Oregon lumber and respectfully solicits the patronage of the citizens and those living in this vicinity. The Helena Independent got terribly mixed upon the personnel of President Hill's party. President Hughitt of the Chicago & Northwestern was taken for Mayor Hewitt of New York, and received an invitation to address the Democratic club Wednesday evening. There are some things so perfidious transpiring among the vicious in nearly every community that they are well calcu lated to bring a perennal blush of shame to the inanimate cheek of a cigar sign. They should be evacuated so that a more healthful state of affairs would exist in society. Our wide-awake friend, Mr. Douglass, sold yesterday the half lot which he bought of C. T. Wernicke last fall. The consideration was $2,700. Mr. Schiller, a prqminent business man of Ashland, Wisconsin, was the buyer. Mr. Schiller will return here from the east in a short time and put in a first-class boot and shoe store. It is pleasing to note the rapid growth of this town, which is in itself a cogent argument that Great Falls will soon reach that status in advancement which will be commensurate with the, expectations of the most sanguine among us. In order to accelerate Great Falls advancement as a metropolis, every honorable effort should be used. Without designing to cast aspersion upon the non-side-walk element in this town, if there is such an element exist ing here, it might be said that it is well to remember the soil in Great Falls is not impervious to water; but, on the contrary, water will so assimilate with the soil as to be fit only for the streets of Athens, for it is universally known that that city is in Greece. We learn that J. H. McKnight & Co. have sold out their stock of groceries to Bach, Cory & Co., and the firm will here after devote itself to agricultural imple ments. This is a first-class market for that line and with such firms as S. C. Ashby & Co. and J. H. McKnight & Co., the farmers will not seek any other to supply all their wants in that line. We have been credibly informed, that though the receipts were quite large at t the recent entertainment, given as a ben efit for the band, the members of the band are still desirous of raising more funds, and to that end they have decided to give a ball at Hickory block on Cent tral avenue Wednesday evening, June 29. t Refreshments will be served at the - Delmonico restaurant. Look out for invitations. The school children are preparing to give an exhibition the 29th of June. Prof. Race's band has kindly consented to furnish free music for the occasion. Our people have contributed freely to church affairs and other objects and they should store up a few dimes for the benefit of the children who have always been ready to assist at other entertain ments, and to help them is to benefit every one in town. James J. Hill and Col. Broadwater re turned in a special train from Helena Thursday evening and spent a day in Great Falls; Mr. Hill leaving for St. Paul Friday evening. They closely inspected the condition of the Montana Central and Sand Coulee railroads, and made prepara tions for commencing work on the coal mines. Mr. Hill is a rustler for Great Falls and we are told has great projects in contemplation for this town in addi tion to those already on foot. Charles Maguire, who was killed at Sun River last Saturday by a negro soldier was about 28 years old and of Irish birth. His parents reside in Meadville, Penn. His brother was here last fall canvassing for a house in the tree and shrub line. Charles Maguire was married to a daugh ter of Mr. Sheppard, who lived formerly on the south fork of Sun River and traded in horses and stock. Mr. Sheppard now resides in Minneapolis. Last year Ma guire carried freight from Helena to the Blackfeet agency. He also at times hauled wool for the sheep men.-Herald. The following are at the Milwaukee House: Miss Miffin, W. O. Dow, C.

Mr. Dean, one of the proprietors of the Sand Coulee coal mines, was interviewed at the hotel yesterday by a representative of the LEADER as follows: "Mr. Dean, are there any new developments at the mines?" "Well, yes; there was a party from Stillwater here recently, and he was representing a company at that place. He came here for the purpose of look ing at some mines that belong to private individuals. The mines contain alout 500 acres, and are located at Sand Coulee, adjoining the ground of the company on the north. He was accompanied by Prof. Swallow who came to make a re port upon the mines. The private indi viduals are Dean, McKay & Son and Culbertson." President Hill of the Manitoba rail road, associated with other capitalists, ex pects to establish at Great Falls an imn mense plant for the manufacture of iron and steel rails. The country contiguous to Great Falls during the past two years has developed the fact that it is one of the richest sections of the whole country as regards iron ore deposits. Investiga tions show there are immense bodies of hermatite, spathic and magnetic ores, a large portion of which is especially a adapted for the manufacture of bessemer i steel. In connection with the iron ores, Great Falls has an unlimited supply of coal and limestone the essentials neces sary for the working of the ores. Prob ably in no other place in the United I States, with the exception of Birminlg ham, Alabama, are all of the essentials for the mannfacture of steel, found in a group. It is expected that this immense plant will give employment to from one a thousand to fifteen hundred men. President Hill, npon one of his period ical visits to the Falls, accompanied by President Hughitt of tile Northwestern came in via the Manitoba Monday morn ing the 11th inst. These gentlemen to gether with a number of the prominent directors of the Northwestern railway were making a tour of inspection of the country, remaining at the Falls one day. They examined the water-power, coal fields and other resources, and were much surprised and pleased with what they saw here, particularly the fertility of the country and its beauty. They prophesy for this part of Montana a very rapid growth in population and wealth. The party left Tuesday morning for Helena, Butte and points west. The democratic rally the other evening appeared to have rallied more republicans than democrats. It was frequently re marked that there were two republicans out of three person present. The band music was first class; "Marching through Georgia" elicited great applause from the republicans. The speaking will probably never be the means of sending any one to congress. We were somewhat sur prised to see a native of that country whose people are crushed and downtrod den by British tyranny, talking in favor of the free trade policy which the crafty English, through Cleveland, are trying to force upon this country. George Taylor made a very fair speech; Major Baldwin forgot to mention the telephone scandal. The orator of the evening was Judge Murphy, of Cascade. On the whole it was rather tame, the redeeming features being the fireworks and music. The following are at the Park Hotel: Peter Seims, St. Paul; Chas. N. Ayres, Philadelphia; Chas.

When asked by a representative of this this paper for information regarding the occurrence at Sun River, Sheriff Down ing said: "Hurley, my deputy, was on guard, and was to wake me at 10 o'clock. Everything was quiet in the town and he concluded to let me sleep a little longer. About 12 o'clock two men came up to him very suddenly and presented two pistols in his face and said: "Mr. Sheriff, we want that prisoner." He replied: "You have the best of me; I can't help myself." At that time twenty-five or thirty men came out from behind a build ing and demanded the keys from him. He didn't have them; so they commenced to force the door with a crow-bar, and in a few minutes they had forced it open. They then bound the prisoner's hands and feet, put a rope around his neck and eight men dragged him through the mud to the place where he was strung up. Two of the men held Deputy Hurley for probably twenty minutes; then they turned him loose and told him to walk around to the other side of the jail and the men disappeared. There was no demon stration, no excitement; everything was quiet, and the hanging of the darkey was effective. Judge Bach, Sol Yates and Burns arrived there by daylight to assist me, and there they saw the darkey hang ing. SThe thirty men were all masked. As horrible as the cold and heartless murder may have been, the act of those thirty men did not vindicate the law; the law was violated. However, if the partici pants in the hanging of that helpless murderer desire to see the laws enforced they should enforce those laws which are conducive to a healthy state of society. They should evacuate those hot-house hatcheries of crime, and lend their influ ence towards the establishment of a moural community. ' Ihshlavogue." The Wards presented to a large and appreciative audience in the Collins' building Thursday evening the famous drama "Inshavogue." The stage being a temporary structure, with limited scenic effects, the play could only he made real istic by good characterization. James M. Ward, as Brian MaGuire ("Inshavogue") at times did well-hlie can act well at all times no doubt, if he so desires. Carrie Clark Ward, as Biddy Malone, lost her individuality wholly; she was versatile, and her acting "is as natural as the heavens are blue." Miss Mifflin. im personating Kate O'Dwyer, did well throughout the entire play. Miss Jennie Lamont, as Lady O'Dwyer, went thsough her emotional parts in a credi table manner. [lick Burke, the stalge villain was fairly impersonated by 0, HI. Barr. As aforesaid the stage environ ment was poor, but the play for the most part was good, and in some parts excel lent. The company appears in a differ ent cast Friday and Saturday evenings. A New Prepared Fuel. An inventive genius at Pocahontas, Ind., grinds cornstalk and coarse prairie grass together and moistens them with - water, When this compound has been - reduced to pulp he presses it into blocks twelve inches long and four inches thick. i When these are thoroughly dried they burn readily, and it is claimed give mol:re heat tsau the saine amnount of soft coal. COURT PROCEEDINGS. Monday morning the Judge was not present in his seat as customary at the usual hour, and some good-humored re marks were made by those present about fining him for non-attendance. At ten o'clock, however, Judge Bach, came into court with the sheriff and deputies, all looking red-eyed and worn from their having been up all night at Sun River in their efforts to prevent the lynching of the murderer, Robertson. The court charged the grand jury specially upon the subject of lynching, taking strong ground against the lynchers. But little business was transacted; the trial jury was impanneled. The case of the Territory of Montana vs. Merrit S. Havens for murder of his wife occupied the attention of the court the first part of the week. Considerable time was consumed in obtaining a jury. Most of the jurymen present had already formed an opinion in the case. The fol lowing were finally selected: Geo. Budge, A. IB. Elkins, W. J. Pratt, W. O. Dexter. F. W. Plummer, E. D). Hastie, D. Huey, Matt Furuell, Thomas Thornton, E. Reineicke, E. Manu and P. B. Buchanan. Geo. W. Taylor, county attorney, as sisted by J. P. Lewis, represented the prosecution. Messrs. Donnelly and Stan ton appeared for the defense. The evidence was to the effect that Havens and his wife had had several quarrels, that when seen by the coroner and others the body was lying on a bed in a tentSxl0. There were marksof chok ing on the neck and bullet holes in her head which could not have been caused by the deceased. The theory of the defense was that of suicide. The case was not closed until Wednesday evening. Mr. Lewis made the opening argument for the territory and was fol lowed by Messrs. Donnelly and Stanton for the defense, the closing argument being made by County Attorney 'Taylor. On Thursday morning the jury brought in a verdict of murder in the second de gree. We are informed the defendant appeared pleased with the verdict but will move for a new trial. Sentence was deferred. The sentence may be for im prisonment from ten years or more or for life. The case of W. F. Kasson, the city di rectory man, for taking a horse belonging to Mr. Pence to Sun River and neglect ing to return him, resulted in a verdict of guilty. This and the wife-beating case of John Bechtal occupied the courts time on Thursday. John Bean Esq., steno grapher and attorney, ably defended the case and secured the first acquital of a criminal in the district court of Cascade county. In the case of Harris vs. Gerlach the trial was had before the court without a jury and who decided the case in favor of the plaintiff. Friday morning was taken up with the case of the Territory against Larry Bean, charged with appropriating money be longing to Charles A. Crowder. The prosecution being unable to tell the de menination of the bills taken the case was dismissed. The case of Luttrell & Moore against F. B. Wilcox, appealed from the Probate - court was on trial Friday afternoon. Left. At the Democratic rally the other even ing it was thought it would be aflne thing to get Mr. Hill, who is no slouch of a speaker, to give the democrats a speech. Our friend, O'Dwyer, was deputized to interview Mr. Hill and get him ready for the crowd. Full of his usual zeal, with his tall white hat on and his coat tails streaming in the wind, Mr. O'D. rushed down to the special train. "O yes," said Mr. Hill affably, "we will give the boys something to think of." So O'I)wyer rushed back and proudly marched at the head of the column, wiping his forehead furiously with his bandana. Meanwhile Mr. Hill whispered a few words to the engineer, and just as the crowd bore in sight, puff, went the locomotive, and a moment later O'Dwyer was longinglyand sadly gazing at the retreating cars as they went around the bend. "Of all sad words of tongue anti pen, "The saddest are it might have been." The Agricultural Editors. The gathering of the agricultural editors at Great Falls was an event cal culated to be of great moment to our infant city. The editors represented all parts of the country, from the classic streets of Boston to St. Paul and Minne apolis, and their papers are read by hundreds of readers in every state in the union. The visitors were enthusiastic over the resources of northern Montana, and of Great Falls. They spoke in glowing terms of the agricultural resources of this section, of the flourishing fields of wheat and grain, of the inexhaustible sup ply of coal, the beautiful scenery and wonderful water supply, and were in earnest in what they saul. They are men of the keenest intelligence and such ones as Great Falls hopes to see again. The New Hardware Store. Messrs. Dow & Tuttle are ready to re ceive the patronage of the citizens and those living in the vicinity of Great Falls. Their line. is complete. Interviewers Interviewed. The St. Louis Globe-l)emocrat people were bound to write up the St. Louis con vention in a pretty thorough manner. When the train bearing the Washington newspaper correspondents came near St. Louis it was intercepted by five or six reporters, who ascertained the ideas of the travelers upon the political outlook. As each one replied he was given a yel low ticket on which was printed in bib letters the word "'Pumped" and in small type the injunction "Stick this in the band of your hat and you will not be troubled again by a reporter." The newspaper men made a lot of fun over the affair, but gracefully submitted to the interviewing process. A False Advertiser on Trial. NEvw YORK, June 14.--John S. l)unn has been placed on trial for grand larceny in court. It. T. Scott, the teller of the Manhattan Bank, went to England in 1885, having embezzled about $150,000. ISubsequently Ihe made a sworn statement that he had entrusted the greater part of the stolen money with hisbrother-in-law, Dunn, who is a lawyer by profession. Dunn has been in prison in Ludlow street jail for the lst 10 month-. In opening the case for the people it was contended that Dunn did not advise Cashier Scott as a lawyer but as a friend, that the prop er mode of procedure when he found he could not make good his shortage was to steal enough to cripple the bank and foice a settlement with the Manhattan bank directors. If the testimony bears out tihe assertions of the district attorney it will show that when Scott faltered the lawyer egged him on to rob to the extent of an even million dollars. Blaine to Reiterate lls Refusal.
