What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

WEEKLY MONTANIAN. V01. 1. THOMPSON FALLS, MONTANA, A L 13, 1895. COVERED WITH SNOW Recent Sturm in the West One of the Worst Known. ALL THAVEL WAS STAGNATED Range stoek Killed by the itundiede Trains Are Now Beginning to Come flirough. Denver, Culu., April 8.--13elated trav- elers from the east report that the storm through Kansas was the worst ever known in that section. Many passenger trains, now more than 48 hours late, are still battling with snow and sand on the prairie. Superintendent I3ogard of the Union Pacific. with headquarters at Cheyenne Wells. has a large force of men clearing the tracks. In places with- in 60 or 75 miles of Denver the snow has drifted in cuts from 30 to 40 feet deep, being over the tops of telegraph poles. Trains are getting through on all roads today. The loss of range stock in some por- tions of eastern Colorado, it is said, will amount to 20 per cent. of the cattle. Many cattle drifted into Hugo, Colo., and perished, which had been driven before the wind from the north over 100 THE ROCKFORD MESSIAH MULCTED Seim einferth Must Pa 3 s50,000 Lain ages for Breaking I p a Home. Chicago, April 9. -The long delayed trial by which George W. Coudray seeks to col- lect $50,000 in a damage suit against Jacob lachweinfurtb, the \Rockford Messiah,\ began ln J ileac Dunne's court today. Cou- <trey alleges taut defendant alienated Mrs. Coteireyas affeetions from her husband by inducing her to enter his \Heaven.\ Sev- eral witnesses, formerly disciples of the defendant, will testify for the plaintiff. When the case was called Schweinfurth was not present and was not represented by counsel. An attorney was present who had received letters from the de- fendant regarding the suit. In them Schweinfurth declared himself unable to resist the \doings of man,\ and intimated that he cared nothing for the case. He emphatically added that he was guiltless of wrong doing. The first witness called was aged Dr: Abraham Smith, an ex - inmate of the Rockford \heaven.\ The doctor's testimony was chiefly confined to intimations that Schweinfurth's morality was not above par. The jury awarded Coudrey $50,000 dam- ages in the Schweinfurth case. HIS NECK MAY YET BE SAVED stiong Efforts on Behalf of an Unit feu- nate Criminal. Denver, April 8. -This is the date upon which, according to the sentence pro- nounced by Judge Butler, Henry Tyson should be hanged for the murder, over six years ago, of Charles Sumner. The state supreme court, however, granted a su- percedeas last week, and consequently Tyson has a new lease of life. Public sym- pathy has been aroused in his behalf, and it is now very unlikely that he will expiate his crime upon the gallows. Ty- son's case has probably no parallel in the criminal history of this or any other country. His victim, one Charles Sumner, had eloped with his wife after seducing her. Notwithstanding this strongly mit- igating circumstance, however, the jury, when he was brought to trial a year later, found him guilty and the death sentence was pronounced. Thereupon the unfortu- nate man lost his reason, and in turn his sight, his hearing and his power of mo- tion. But the gallows was not to be cheated of its prey, and so the doctors got at him and in time succeeded in restoring his reason and all his lost senses. Then he was again housed up before another jury, which pronounced him sane, where- upon he was for the second time solemnly sentenced to hang. The interposition of the supreme court at the present time is based upon the claim of Tyson's lawyers that a man cau not be sentenced to death it second time. The appeal will be argued later In the year. MEETING OF CUBAN SYMPATHIZERS -- Kansas tits People interested In the Cause of Revolutionists. Kansas :ity, April 9.-A mass -meeting of citizens In sympathy with the Cuban insurgents was held tonight at Turner hall. Major William Warner, Judge Wof- ford, D. S. Twitchell, Major Biakewood, Hon.

Morales says that with the sympa- thy of Americans their cause can be won. They now have $3.500,000 with which to carry on their fight. Ile states that the insurgents are trying to gain a sufficient portion of the island to declare a pro- visional government. PASSENGER RATES DEMORALIZED - - - Burlington & Missouri Riser Mahes Emit From Denver to omalia. Chicago, April 9. -The demoralization In patmenger rates west of the Missouri :iver was increased somewhat today. The Burlington & Missouri River an- nounced that on April 15 it will make a $17 round trip rate from Denver to Oma- ha From Kansas City a rate of $5 will be made to points in Nebraska and one of $7 to Sterling, Col. Another feature which may add somewhat to the demoral- Izetion in the preparation which practic- ally all the western roads are making to run home -seekers' excursions to all points in Nebraska, Kansas, Montana, the Da- kotas and Wyoming. THE TRANS -ANDEAN RAILROAD. Hope Entertained in Chili of Its Com• pietion in a I ea Years Washington, April 8. -United States Minister Strobel at Santiago, Chile, an- nounces in his report to the state depart- ment that the Chilean congress February 9 passed a law which guarantees for twenty years to the Trans -Andean Rail- way Company the interest at the rate of 4 1 / 2 per cent on the capital stock of £1,300,- 000. The English capitalist with whom the holders of the concessions (Messrs. Clark Bros.) had been negotiating to raise the amount required to complete the road demanded a guarantee of 5 per cent, but the Chilean congress would not go be- yond 4 1 / 2 . As work is being continued on the Argentine side hope is generally en- tertained in Chile that with the passage of the law sufficient capital will be ob- tained for completion of the entire road by both companies within a few years. The uncompleted portion, however, com- prises the most difficult portion. The line on the Argentine side is finished as far as Puarta de Vacassi and on the Chilean side as far as Salta Delsado. This leaves at present unfinished about fifty miles, equally divided between the two republics. This distance is being at present trav- ersed in seventeen hours, and the whole trip from Valparaiso to Buenos Ayres oc- cupying four days.

Waterville, April 'L. -The anticipated rush into the Methow, Squaw creek and Slate creek Mining districts is on in earnest. Work can be conducted on claims on the Methow and Squaw creeks, but the snow is yet too deep ti. reach Slate creek. It is reported that Colonel Hunt has given up the effort to eonstruct a road to Slate creek until later in the Reason. The mountains are already full of prospectors, and the steamboat is leaded every trip with freight and passengers for the new dis- tricts. It is safe to say that the popula- tion that will be added to Okanogan eetnity this summer will far exceed the :Lost extraeangant claims advanced 'luring the winter.

IS NOT A DRUNKARD Cleveland DenountsJs Clergynwn Who Spread Such Reports HE SAYS IT IS AN OUTRAGE Luse of Notoriety Impels Ministers of the Gaspe! to Become Cal- umniators. Washington, April 7. -When the re- port of a speech made in a Methodist conference at Salem, Mass., by Rev. Lansing, and his subsequently p lished interview, accusing the presid_ .11 of intemperance, was shown to Mr. Cleveland this evening, he said with considerate warmth: \This is simply an outrage, although it is not the first time a thing of this kind has been attempted. I can not avoid a feeling of indignation that any man who makes claims to decency and especially one who assumes the role of a Christian, should permit himself to become a disseminator of wholesale lies and ealumnies not less stupid than they are cruel and wicked. \I easily recall other occasions when those more or less entitled to be called ministers of the gospel have been in- strumental in putting into circulation the most scandalous falsehoods concern- ing my conduct and character. The elements or factors of the most a proved outfit for placing a false ana barefaced accusation before the house appear to be: First, some one with second, a minister with more gullibility and love of notoriety than piety, greed- ily willing to listen to It and gobble it; and third, a newspaper anxiously will- ing to publish it. For the sake of the Christian religion I am thankful that these scandalmonger ministers are few, and on every account I am glad that the American people love fair play and justice, and that in spite of all efforts to mislead them they are apt to form a correct estimate of the character and labors of their public servants.\ TREASURY OFFTCT.1.1.5 DISPIRITED and curious, and which illustrate the early growth from rude and simple forms to the modern wonderful combin- :Jinn of mechanical and optical prin- MORMON APOSTLES IN CONFERENCE Expect a Divine Command Rcertiditig, the Appointment of Two liere• Kansas City April 9. -Apostles of the •hurch of Latter Day Saints, now in an- eual conference at Independence, went hi- e) secret session today, Joseph Smith, head of the church, presiding.

The Municipal League, composed of the religiously incined people of the city, assisted Prosecuting Attorney Ormsbee in the case; but the jury brought in a verdict of \not guilty.\ This was a test case to show whether the law would compel the saloons of this city to be closed on Sunday. • Since this charge was made all the saloons of the city have been closed on Sun- days, rubject to the decision to be ren- dered in this ease.

TO 0 IsLoeliS COLLAkiiED A Disaster at Wheeling, West Virginia, Caused six Deaths. Wheeling, W. Va., April 9. -At It a. m. today the south wall of the four-story brick block of Hutchinson ir Co., on the corner of Male street and the alley south of Twelfth, collapsed without warning. Next north of it was the place of Chapman & Son, who were just finishing a five -story brick block. The wall on the alley first fell out, pulling with it the partition wall between the Hutchinson and Chapman blocks. The crash of the failing buildings wee, ter- rific and soon drew thousands to the scene.. The horror of the wreck was in- creased by a fire which broke out, and as there were large quantities of oil and turpentine in Chapman & Sons' the sit- uation was hard to meet. Four employes wire caught in the Hutchinson ruins -Robert Winchester, E. Birch, P. J. Horan, M. I. Ford. The first three have not been found and are doubtless dead. Ford was rescued and may recover. Charles Haller, the book- keeper, and Adam Blum, Jr., were penned up against the rear wall and were released by prying the bars off the windows. Mr. Hutchinson was in the second story and was badly injured. but was rescued alive, and hopes are en- tertained that he may recover. When the collapse came Ford was selling a bill of goods to Benjamin F. Pritchard of Buchanan, W. Va. Pritch- ard's dead body was found lying across Ford's legs. He was crushed to death. Shortly before the accident, Rev. Father F. H. Parke, vicar general of the Catholic diocese of Wheeling, was seen to enter the alley and he was believed to be killed, and this belief was sadly confirmed by the recovery of his body. He was 72 years old, a distinguished clergyman, chaplain of Mt. Dechantal academy, and had been twice adminis- trator of the diocese. A Western Union telegraph messenger bola Harry Cowie, aged 14, is also thought to have been in the alley, but his body has not been recovered. The falling brick and timbers knocked a hole 30 feet long in the three-story brick building across the alley occupied by G. M. Rice & Co.. wholesale milliners. and smoke and water ruined their val- uable stock ' IT: Water caused serious damage to Greer & Laing's hardware :aorta and Ott Bros. & Co., hardware dealers. The cellars were flooded for blocks. 10 streams playing all day, and averaging 1,000 gallons a Phil -lute, and yet at 8 o'clock the fire is not extinguished. Great indignation le expressed be- cause at the time the old Melodeon hall property was remodeled and a story added, in 18al, by Mr. Hutchinson, the walls were condemned, but he persist- ed in using them and owing to the lack of adequate law -s could not be prevent- ed. Fourteen men were in the buildings at the time. Six got out without injury. Five of these -W. H. Chapman. Sam Kenno, Walter Chapman, W. V. Clin- ton and Newton -were in the Chapman building, and being the near the front succeeded in escaping without injury. The loss will probably aggregate 8150,- 000. iuir SILVER 311 N OF MINNESOTA, con% ention of Itimetallists Planned for the Seamier or Fall. Chicago, April 8.-A special from St. Paul, Minn., says: \There will be a free silver conven- tion in Minnesota during the coming summer or fall. It is planned on broad lines and will take in every democrat and every republican who desires to Participate, providing he is an avowed advocate of free silver coinage.\ ALABAMA SILVER PARTY. Birmingham, Ala., April 8.-A silver party is the latest acquisition to politi- cal affairs in Alabama. In Athens, Limestone county, 400 democrats, re- publicans and populists met and de- clared themselves in favor of free coin- age of silver and hound themselves without any respect to party ties to support for office only such men as favor their views.

SPAT IN HIS FACE Governor of Arkansas Wanted the Blood of an Enemy. AND PULLED OUT HIS PISTOL After a Sharp struggle the 1 sso Lngaged combatants Were Parted-Legia• I ntl% e Ross C u.ed It. Little Hock, Ark., April 7. -The spec- tacle of an honorable member of the Arkansas legisiature, livid with rage, spitting in the face of the governor of this commonwealth, quickly re tUrned by a violent emissary of executive sa- liva upon the features of the lawmaker, and a flourish of fire arms in the hands of the governor, was witnessed in the lobby of Gleason's hotel here this after- noon, end was the result of the first senset eat charges of bribery in con- nection with the fire commission inves- tigation bill sprung in the house of rep- resentatives yesterday by Representa- tive Yancey of Phillips county. Mr. Jones, one of the principals of this af- fair, rose to a point of personal privilege ind denounced Governor Clark as be- lig at the bottom of the charges. He said that the governor was a dema- gegue and was going around like the assassin in the night, stabbing is the aack men who were his peers. This afternoon Governor Clark went Into the lobby of Gleason's hotel and re- quested an interview with him. Mr. Junes . replied he would accompany the governor nowl - re, and if the gov'ernor had anything say to him he must make it known then and there. Hot words followed and in a fit of anger Jones spat in the governor's face. Gov- ernor Clark, trembling with anger, re- turned the insult and quick as a flash drew his revolver, and the difficulty might have resulted in bloodshed but for the quick action of bystanders, who disarmed Governor Clark. The gov- ecnor was later arrested by a constable and releesed on his own recognizance. He will, he says, plead guilty to the charge of assault emorrow morning. Further trouble me. - .sue. JONES TELLS rtIS STORY. In a statement of the occurrence, giv- en out tonight, Representative Jones said: \I had just left the dining room after dinner at Gleason's hotel and taken a scat in the office on the west side, fac- ing the east wall, quietly smoking a cigar and not expecting any trouble whatever. Suddenly I heard the front door open very abruptly and on looking up I saw Governor Clark enter the office. saw from his countenance that he meant trouble. I vacated my chair about the time he reached e The governor, in a very abrupt maaner, said. 'Come back with me,' and at the same time ieotioned towards the rear. I was to- tally unarmed and felt that he intended to kill me. I said. 'No, I will not do it. If you have anythit ..o say to me, you _earl say it to me here.' \He then caught me by the right arm ind commanded me to go to the rear , .efice,at the same time pulling me a step or two. I then stopped and again de- clined his invitation in language exact ly as repeated above. II,: then delib- erately spat in my face. I returned the insult by spitting in his face. When I did this he let loose of my arm and made for Ids pistol. I saw that my only chance was to knock him down, and I struck at him with all my might with my left hand. He sprang back towards the door, and my blow failed to reach him. lie was reaching for his pistol. I sprang and grappled with him and caught him around the waist, pressing both arms to his side, but leaving 's arms free to act from the elbow dove... By this time he had his pistol drawn. Just then Rep- resentative Roberts sprang in and grab- bed the weapon. He struggled to free the gun, while the governor said, 'Turn that pistol loose.' Roberts declined. when the governor said, 'Damn you. Roberts, turn that pistol loose.' \About this time some one grabbed me around the waist. I requested that the pistol be taken from Clark and then release him. Roberts and Pope declined. I then said, 'Give me a pisto3 and turn him loose with his weapon.' \When the governor saw that he as overpowered, he requested Pope to en the pistol loose, and said: 'I will not kill him. I promise you positively that I will not kill him.' \Senator Willard then requested me to release my hold on the governor and asked me to go to my room, saying that he would take care of Governor Clark. Finally I did go to my room, remaining there 10 seconds, and returned to the office, but the governor was gone.\ THE GOVERNOR SILENT. Governor Clark says he does not care to discuss the trouble through the press further than to say that he did not go to the hotel with a view of making trou- ble, but only to tell Mr. Jones that he must desist from lugging his name into controversies existing between members of the house. The trouble which VA - !owe\. was not of his making. killed In: n Mow iti n list Laporte, Ind., April 7. -henry Farnheirn was killed here this morning by a blow from the fist of his father -In-law, Jacob Ott.
