Kinman w.-ites from Woodville, Montana, to the Butte Miner the follow ing account of one of tbe most remarkable adventnrea ever experienced by a pros pector iu the northwest: One evening last week, after x long ramble over the hills, I had reached tbe conclusion to return home, lest night should overtake me in that locality, when I came upon a trail which had evidently recently been traveled. I followed it up tbe mountain for some distance, when 1 noticed a dump right in font of me. Be ing a prosj*ector, as a matter of course I climlied right up to It. The shaft out of which it came was about fo’ly or fifty feet deep, timbered to the bottom. I saw nothing remarkable about tbe dump or shaft and might have passed on bnt for the great dispropolion between them, the dump ticing more than sufficient to have filled two shafts the size of the one lioneaih me. Notwitbsumding the night was fast ap proaching, I descended the broken ladder to the bottom of the shaft. I took from my |iocket a piece of candle which I usu ally carry on such expeditions, when by iu« aid I discovered a crosscut running from tbe bottom of the shaft. The croto cut had been lagged up so as to conceal it, but some of the laggi ig had fallen to one side. Upon exploring it I found it was pe -Imps fifty feet in length and had cross cut the finest body of o*e what I ever saw. The vein was nearly four feet In width and seemed to be widening', specimens I which I b oke f- om the ledge showed native gold and nndve silver. I had stood there examining and admir ing the jewel for some time when I hea -d a noise in the abaft. I looked, and my heart stood still, for there in the cut we e two pairs of fiery eyes glueing at me. I knew in a moment they were mountain lions. I reached for my revolver, hut I had left it at home, and my gun was on top. One who has neve' lieen in such a predicament can hardly imagine the feel ings, thoughts and emotions of a men in such peril. 1 shouted and advanced to ward them, but ihey oily growled de - ance. I have heard old hunters say such animals are afraid of fi-e, so I kept my candle in front of me, but that would soon lie gone, for it was only a few inches in length, and then I would be devoured by the owners of those eyea. The lions kept growling and threaten ing every moment to attack me. My aandie was growing shorter. Something had to be done. I picked a piece of rock from the side of the cut and tied a letter to it, which I chanced to have in my pocket. I men set the letter on fire and threw the rock with the blazing letter at the lions and gave a yell, and the way those lions got out of the shaft was amusing to me even under the circumstance.!, for it •earned to me that I had been down the re a thousand years, though in reality it was aliout two hours. When I reached the top, which I did immediately after the retreat of the leasts, I heard someone coming up the trail. I waited. It was the men who struck the bonanza. They were astonished to find me there at that hour and were inclined to be cross, but when I told them what kind of an experi ence I had they had a good laugh over it. When I asked them some particulars as to their find the}' said there was a cloud on their title to the properly which the statute of limitation would dispell, pro vided the other party was kept in ignor ance of the strike, and added they had taken out a few tons secretly which net ted them over #llOO to the ton. After the boys had secured the opening through which I entered the cut, are all went down tbe hill together. Aa I believe in the right of the discoverer to reap the benefit of bis discovery I shall not give the boys ! away. WHUagtsßi (Ufttt. Washington selected his adviser* a hun dred years ago.

NORTH TAEIMA, WASHINGTON TERRITORY, THURSDAY, MARCH 14, 1889. THE TWSKTY-FIYE DISTRICTS in Approximate Outline of the Coming Apportionment. A Cakalßilea of line Territory’* foj. ■latleß the Bailn off the Vote l'»«l Last Nevrmbrr; Allow ance for New Population. There wU lie seventy-five delegates in the constitutional convention. The terri tory must lie divided into twenty-five dis tricts, in each of which three delegates will lie electee!. The work of elistricting the territory will be performed by the governor, chief Justice of the supreme court and secretary of the territory, or a majority of them. The appoitionment will lie according to population, as near us may be, to be ascertained for the best informa tion obtainable. Probabl y the best information at hand was ihe election returns of November last. The total vote was 46,348. It is probably a fair estimate to say that 10 per cent, of the voters did not vote, or 463). Then there have come into the territory since Novembe-, or in four months, not less than 10,000 men entitled to vote. These swell the total voting population to 00,083. On the basis upon which imputation is usually calculated, four and one-half per sons to each vote, the total population at this time cannot lie far from 274,424. Of couree it is impossible, within tbe time allowed fo* the wo-k, to determine how the increase of population is distrib uted Tlie only way is to distribute the estimated increase pro rata among tbe counties. Assuming the population last Noveml«r to have been, on tbe basis of the vote cast plus the pe ventage who did not vo.e, 229,424, there will be a surplus of 4&,000 to distribute pro rata among the counties according to the vote cost in them respectively last November. It would requi e a more elaborate calcula tion than is necessary at this time to give a detailed statement of the result, hut suf ficiently occurete results can be arrived at by multiplying the total vo.e in Novemlier by 4>x and then adding the sum of the total vote cast. For example, King county cast a total of 6180 votes. This sum plus 10 pe' tent, not voting and then multiplied by 4(*, the ratio of the popu lation to Ihe voter, gives 30,391, and ad ding 6180, the county's pro rata of the increase of population, a total population of 80,771 is indicated. Assuming the population of the terri tory to lie 274,424, each of the twenty-live districts, us nearly as may i«, must have a population of 10,977. This would give King£couniy a total of nine delegates with 3840 population to spare, or the equiva lent of one-third of an additional dele gate. It appears there cannot lie a Joint delegate elected in order to adjust such inequalities, os the namiier ot districts are fixed and also ihe number of delegates to be elected in each one. To be sure, county lines might lie disregarded, but then the difficulty of ascertaining the population of the particular section of a county thrown into another district will poesibly prevent this plan being adopted. According to the same basis of calcula tion the districts, with the respective pop ulation, will be defined as follows: Fioit district—Walla Walla, 14,631; sec ond—Columbia, 7997, and Garfield, 6814; third and fourth—Asotin, 1993, and Whit man, 22,528; fifth and sixth— Spokane, 26,423; seventh—Lincoln, 9703; eighth— Stevens, 3440, Okanogan, 3343, and Douglas, 2749; ninth—Adams, 2196, Franklin, 859, and Yakima, 5414; tenth —Kittitas, 8632; eleventh, Klickitat, 6593, and Skamania, 579; twelfth —Clarke, 10,- 193; thirteenth—Cow lit*, 6090, and Lewis, 9316; fourteenth—Wahkiakum, 1886, Pa cific, 3784, and Cbehalis, 8389; fifteenth —Thurston, 8433; sixteenth—Mason, 3393, and Kitsap, 4446: seventeenth— Jefferson, 6452, and Clallam, 2099; eight eenth—lsland, 1024, Han Juan, 2285, and Whatcom, 7408; nineteenth—Rnohomisn, 7675; twentieth— Skagit, 7026; twenty first, twenty-second and twenty-third— King, 36,771; twenty-fourth and twenty fifty—Pierce, 24,C40. This gives a total of twenty-five dis tricts. There are ten east of the moun tains and fifteen west.— StaUU Budget. Bttf F/A¥l^. By next summer the American Beef Company, one of the largest corporations that haa yet been organised, hopes to be supplying the eastern market with beef. It holda Us charter nnder the laws of New Mexico, wbe*w much of its property is situated, and has an authorized capital of $25,000,000. The company holds in fee 1,869,000 acres of land ; a tract larger than Rhode Island, and owns 200,000 heed of cattle, 2000 horses, and a large stock of sheep and bogs, lies ides a la*ge number of refrigerator care. The Kansas City slau;,hte’ bouse and the Baltimore market, in which Ormond Hammond, Jr., was In terested.- have beta turned into the same big »001, and the company owns large feeding sheds at Topeka. The plan of the euterprise is to control every stage of ♦he beef business from the ranch to the consumer’s table. Stores will lie erected in New York, Baltimore, Boston and elsewhere, as occasion may demand, and sales will he made direct to consumers. Hide-, fat, bools, etc., find ready ma-kot si Kansas City, whe*e the company's slaughter booses are. The ranchos and ranges that hare been turned into this pool are in Mexico and New Mexico, whe»e frost, snow and Wla sards are unknown, wher.. e #r t' c are probably freer from disease, by reason of the cltmafe and grasses, that in any oilier portion of tbe country. Among the ranches are those of Colonel Robt. G. Ingersoll; tlie Palo Alto ranches, owned by the Hon. John B. Alley, of Lynn, Mass.; those of Joseph W. Dwyer, 8. V. White, Governor O. A. Hadley, D. C. Holcomb, J. A. Hubbell, S. Lindauer, Stephen W. Dorsey, Mrs. Pock (Mr. Dor sey’s sister-in-law), C. H. Dane, a Silver City hanker, all of New Mexico; the Oak Grove ranches, owned by E. C. Converse snd J. H. Flagler, and those of Don Thomas Mac Mamie, a Mexican banker. The officers of the company are: Presi dent, J. H. Flagler, president of the Cot ton Seed Oil trust; vice-president, J. O. Moss, treasurer of the Cotton Seed Oil trust; secretary, Charles E. Coon, ex treasurer of the United States; treasurer, Jennings S. Cos, of John Davis A Co., bankers; general manager, Ormond Ham mond, Jr. IV Lh4h Hr It is said that the great state trial in England, growing out of the infamous charges of the London Timet against Mr. Parnell, will not fall short of a million dollars. The result of the collapse of the Timet case must permanently damage the character and influence of the great news paper, and of the tory ministry which has hacked it in its assault upon the foremost of Irish statesmen. The measure of tbe loss of consequence and character on the part of Mr. Parnell’s assailants Is tbe measure of his gain. Whether the Timet shad choose to acknowledge itself de ceived or shall accept tbe imputation of conspiracy now matters very little. It has gone too far to break its fall, and has probably done a greater sendee .'or the Irish cause by its venom than could have lieen accomplished by any English friend of Ireland, however powerful. The strug gle of the Irish people for justice will take on a more hopeful aspect from this time forward.— Philadelphia Record. Why tV tat U~idL Elliot F. Shepard, editor of tbe New York Mail and Erpreu, sends his paper the following from Washington: Harri son stated that be would have been much pleased to have appointed to his cabinet a member from the Pacific coast. He early requested the people of tbe Pacific slope to unite upon two or three names from which he might select, but they neglected to do this until quite late. Finally, when the}’ did present some names, they stated specifically that no positions would be ac ceptable except the interior department or at.orney-generalsbip. Already tbe oc cupants for these two offices had been set tled upon or narrowed down to a couple of names from other states, and it was im possible to accommodate tbe coast. This is why the Pacific slope is not represented in tlie cabinet, as Harrison had hoped and expected for some time. Wky falW tkOwiftu Bill The title ’’Omnibus BUI,” given to the measure under which North and South Dakota. Montana and Washington are admitted into tbe Union, was furnished to designate a compromise act originally introduced by Henry Clay, which passed both houses of congress in 1850. It was given to it from tlie circumstance that several measures entirely distinct in their object were embodied in one bill. The most important stipulations of this act were those providing for the admission of California into tbe Union, as a state with its anti-slavery constitution, (or the ad mission of Utah and New Mexico os ter ritories, with no mention of slavery, for the abolition of tbs slave trade in tbs Dis trict of Columbia, and for the rendition of fugitive slaves. kiiaiMi Utter IM.

Exploits sad AdTssiarm Eclipsing the WlMcst Rrsanss sf Extrava gant Romancers—His Carera la Enrage aid America. The Hrbalo recently published an ac count of the exposture of (tenoral Ward, who stumped the east, in the last cam paign, for Harrison, and who proved to be Arlington Buckingham Wadsworth, the accomplished scoundrel who swindled the people of Spokane Falls and ran away with the daughter of a prominent banker of that city. ’’Ward,” as he but called himself, fled to Europe on gaining knowl edge that Detective Walworth, of the Commercial Detective Agency, of Boston, was on his track, and, on *OllOllOllOO, the detective has given to tbe public tbe fol lowing story of Ward’s varied career: “The man whom you know as Gen. A. B. Ward, and for whom we have been on tlie lookout for a number of years, ha* A HISTORY that can hardly be equaled in the criminal annals of this or any other country. He waa in the hands of the police so frequently and displayed so many resources in mak ing his way out of the toils, that he is well known to the police of the eastern states and Europe, hut he is always under sur veillance, and how he managed to conceal his ideality for the past two yeare is a matte *of great surprise to me. As to bis early history, little Is really known, but he has himself stated that if he should tell who he was there would be a pretty well developed row in circles very near the British throne. I learned the most of his story from a fellow detective who followed him to California early in the ’7o’s and from whom he made his escape by strat egy while he was being taken east, and the rest was obtained through tbe British police. He was bom nea' Cheltenham, England, almut fo.ty-el .lit years and waa taken to the continent at once and brought up by a man who traveled a great deal between the Mediterranean and the French capital, and who the boy knew us his uncle. The uncle was a continued in valid and seemed to have but one view in life, and that was the care of bis health, for slavery change of the weather the child and nurse were taken from Nice to Parts, snd vice versa. This continued until young Ward, or, as he was then known, Eugene Beauvoir, was about 13 years of age, when he was one da / shipped to England, and without ado placed at one of tbe public schools, Harrow. Here he remained for about four yean, and though rather disliked on account of his DOUBTFUL ANTKCKDKNTS, nothing was known of bim, and the only visitor be ever had was an old lawyer who took him to London every year in the long vacation, and there he met a lady who waa evidendy of ihe upper ten, and tbe boy spent his vacations with this lady at various watering places on tbe continent and everything that money could buy was lavished on him by his protectress who waa devoted to him. What relationship, if any, existed between them, be never told, if he knew, which is doubtful. “His last year at school was not a pleas ant one for him, nor for his tutors, for there was s certain element in his dis position that made him disagreeable. He developed vicious traits, but he waa a rather remarkable boy, being sometimes fastidious and a*aln descending to what bordered on the brutish in bis habits and punoits. It is a question if be would have been received if he had returned to school, bnt it looked as though he knew what sort of reception he would get for be never returned, and his companion on his vacation trips was never thought of more, though a story is remembered of tbe disap pearance of a young Englishman who waa staying with a lady presumed to be his mother, in Venice, and who took with bim a large amount of diamonds and coin. The lady seemed overcome with grief and refused the assistance of tbe police in her endeavors to find the missing one, and she was finally lost sight of. “Young Beauvoir turned up In Phila delphia in the fi.-st year of the civil war and made a great splurge; giving himself a title and living like a prince, and having plenty of English gold, though there was little of the Englishman in his appear ance or bearing. He waa BXCXKDIVOLY HANDSOME and very well Informed, and made some* thing of a sensation even in thoee sensa tional days. Soon after his arrival he was Joined by a young and beautiful lady, whom be introduced as his wife, and although the twain were eyed a good deal they got the entree into swell society in the Quaker city. The elegant young man made a good many tripe, to different of the country, and became quite a famil iar figure in Washington society, and be finally set up an establishment at the capitol, and his distinguished appearance and evident wealth gave him the freedom of the city. He was lend in his boasting of partisanship, and was looked on as a staunch unionist, and his rooms were a favorite resort lor the young attaches and civil officials of Washington, and when one morning a young official attached to the ordnance department was found drugged in the dining room of Beauvoir and certain valuable papers were missed that were known to have been in possess 100 of the officer the previous day Beau voir was looked for, but in vain. Wash ington was thunderstruck. His true character was then suspected,hut although every effort was mode (or his capture he made good his escape, and Washington suffered the loss of several tliousands in the way of unpaid bills. ’’Eugene Bsnnerton, or Major Eugene Bannerton, was a prominent figure at the confederate capital during '62 and '63, and many a clever piece of work was en gineered by him. Although he seemed to have no official dutiea there was no ques t ion in i his standing, and he had a moans of acquiring wealth that was not known Id most of his fellow citizens. TUX PLAMTKE’S DAI OHTRK. ”He lived in the best possible style,and in ’64 married the daughter of a rich Georgian planter, who held a commission, who was a wealthy man in tbe matter of slaves and land before the war. Within two months of his marriage Major Ban nerton disappeared and barely escaped through the line# into northern territory. What he is charged with is not remem bered, bat that it was a serious matter was proven by tlie fact that he trusted himself on northern soil rather than stay where be was, and tbe wife of two months knew him no more. “He is next identified witli a certain Samuel Oakley Crawford, a young lawyer in New York,whose questionable methods in tbe matter of obtaining clearance (ta pers for vessels whose cargoes and desti nations differed somewhat from their manifest. For this he was arrested, but somehow managed to make his way clear to freedom, and within six months after getting clear of this change he waa on the topmost wave of prosiierhy. having en gaged in the insdne insurance business snd was living* in elegant style at one of the best hotels. When the insurance bub ble burst he didn’t want to argue the mat ter with the coarts, but made his recape. He was heard of occasionally in the we?t, but his operations in tbe east ceased until the year of the panic, when Colonel E. P. Browne, a gentleman of elegant taste and apparently great wealth, appeared in Providence, Rhode Island, and acting, as he said, for St. Louis parties, he entered into negotiations with the assignee of one of the great maiufactorlng institutions for tbe re-establishment of the concern ap parently under its original ownership, the parties he represented to really Iwcome the owners. As there was a number of mills control cd by the company, and thou am.) is of operetore depending on the re o|>ening of the ip iU»-4er~their support, Colonel Browne became at once a most popular man, and although the scheme for reopening the mills (ell through, still the gallant colonel’s popularity did not wane, and he and his wife (?), a lieauti ful girl of 17, were LIONS IN SOCIKTY, and he became identified with many of the schemes used for tiding over tlie hard times of *73 and ’74, bnt his methods were questionable, and he waa deserted by men whose characters were worth something to them. His credit became impaired, and bis wife’s jewelry was sold to give the pair means to get out of Rhode Island and away from the shadows of the del)t ors’ prison which overhang Browne, and aaronple of trans-Atlantic tickets, s change of name, and the handsome Wilmot Ar lington and bis beautiful but delicate young wife were attracting their due share of attention at one of Ihe German resorts. There was nothing intrusive about tbe pair, but they were a distingue couple, aud were able to hold their own in rub bing shoulders with the cold, bard world. Everything went quite smoothly with them, and by changing their place of abode whenever anybody sconced Mr. Ar lington of holding the king 100 often in playing ecarte, they managed to eke out a very decent living. In the summer of ’76 some little trouble was caused the gallant Wilmot by trifling with diamonds again. A large amount in precious stones to be sold by s woman of rank, who had ruined herself gambling, were entrusted to Ar lington to dispose of; he returned the dia monds to the lady after a time, saying he could do nothing with them. Within a few hours he started for a neighboring town. On the same train went the wife of a German officer, and the pair were soon located in Paris. Tbe lad/ with tlie diamonds was bonified to find upon offer ing to pawn her gems that they were paste; that the real ones had been taken out and replaced with fictitious stones. The wife whom he had deserted told his story to the police in revenge, and tbe MAN OF MANY NAMES once more crossed tbe briny, this time alone, and during the centennial he lived in Philadelphia very quietly,or at least he did not bring the notice of the police to him. He seemed to have settled down si this time, and for a couple of years be read a great deal and even took some steps towards getting into the legitimate prac tice of law. His intentions were suspect ed and he was watched, but it is not known that anything out of tbe way oc curred. This kind of life proved 100 tame for him, though, and be disappeared. ’’New Orleans was hie next place of residence, and his quiet air of breeding and aristocratic bearing waa all the pass port he wanted to the good graces of the people there. After looking over the field he disclosed his purpose of patting some of his lands Into a bank, aa he did not like the management of any of the exist ing banks, he proposed starting a private bank. He got hold of a number of sub stantial men who interested themselves with him because he was a gentleman who wanted to do some amateur commercial business, and the bank got under way; and in New Orleans this foreign looking gentleman, who spent money with a lib- Number 7. oral hand, but without wasting it, and whose nodal accomplishments and per- Honal attractions placed him far above the common herds reached the height of suc ceea. The hanking concern was an im mense success and paid big interest to the few interested, and no very close inquiry into the condition of the principal was made by the stockholders until after two years one of the stockholders attempted to withdraw and met with some opposi tion from the founder ami president of tl»e institution. Money was scarce, the president told him, and as he was inter ested for a large sum it could not easily be taken out of the business. Then Mr. Stockholder became suspicion* and lie gan a row which ended in the defalca tion of the president, and NEW ORiJEANH WAS SHOCKED to its social foundation. The northern police were put on the loukont for him, and as soon as we heard the story we identified K. B. Beauvoir with this man of many aliases. It was soon found that he had left the city aboard of a yacht, and he was soon located in the City of Mexico. He had kept clear of women in New Or leans, but in Mexico be threw* off all re serve and appeared in an entirely new role. The city was agog for aome months altout him and his manner of life, and the most tremendous stories were told of his orgies and amusements. In 1880 he floated a mining concern in the state of Chihuahua, and soon thereafter was re quested by the authorities to leave the country, and as Mexico is sometimes given to popular uprisings he evidently thought discretion the better pari of valor and filed an appearance in Bosom, under the name of E. I*. Brown, without any unnecessary delay. Here he kept very quiet for some time and got into the prac tice of law, and showed evident abihiy, but the demon of unrest was in him and he distinguished himself by his manner of life and got to he ve y much talked of for an escapade with some women over at the south end. In ’BS he was given a power of attorney to collect some moneys for a New York firm and that was the last seen of him in the east. His next appearance was at Hpokane Falls.” Why the tarter MM. M. B. Morion, one of the Age Herald staff of reporters, and withal a young gen tleman brim full of energy and wide awake to the duties of his calling, was the only reporter on the ground when the ciUiens of Pratt mines visited their wrath upon George Meadows, the murderer of Willie Keilum. In this connection a gentleman from Pratt mines relates a good story at the expense of Mr. Morton. It appears that the enterprising reporter joined the party when Meadows was fi-st brought in from the woods, where he bad been secreted during the night by bis guards. When he found, from the tem per of the crowd, that a necktie party was imminent, he remonstrated with the leaders and made every effort to have the lynching postponed until evening, in onler, as be claimed, that Mrs. KeUum might be given an opportunity of seeing him and giving a final decision as to his identity. 80 persistently did be prosecute his endeavors that his actions finally aroused the opposition of the crowd, and in a few moments threats against the re porter were almost as frequent as those directed against the prisoner. While Meadows was standing at the foot of the tree and the rope was being passed over the limb the reporter, no longer able to contain himself, made a last and most eloquent appeal to the vast crowd, beseeching them again and again, to at least deter the hanging until noon. Deaf to his every entreaty, the determined men about him finally appeared to lose all patience with the “red-heachd son-of a-gun,” as one of their number “sired him op.” A yell to “bang him along with the nigger 1“ was nest raised. The dangling end of the rope for an instant was flourished about the devoted head piece of the orator, and he was peremp torily invited to “shnt-up.” He accepted the inevitable and subsided into a quiet witness to what immediately followed. “We all felt mighty bad for awhile about the way Morion went back on ua and took np for the nigger/' remarked the gentleman in concluding bis narrative. “But we took back all the mean things we said agin’ him when we lea mod that the dumed cuts was only talking agin* time and trying to keep the hanging off till after the evening papers were out. I can see his red head a-bobb!ng yet and bis Jaws a-working, all to make it appear that he was so awful for law and order. You can tell him .though, that Pratt miners forgive him and will be glad to aee him often .’’ —Birmingham Age. NOTICE or MNOLITIOR.
