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.

VAT ALEY BLOWS FOR ALL. .AT E2 PER FEAit IN ADVANCE. ZEPHYR WHITEHALL, JEFFERSON COUNTY, MONTANA, FRIDAY. MAY 10, 1895. NUMBER 24. KENTUCKY'S DERBY Halma Won the Classic Event in a Romp. GREAT THRONG WAS PRESENT SOOT, OZAW'Mktai 111406.101d *4 1 / 4 111. Jake jUl rat:: at Coney island in TwentY One Rounds. Louisville, May 6. -Fair ladies waved their handkerchiefs and sturdy men joined in the lusty cheer that greeted the son of a great sire when Halma passed under the wire winner of the 21st Kentucky derby this afternoon. Such rejuvenated activity and en- thusiasm was never before witnessed in a race course, for the historic Churchill Downs presented a scene that will go down to posterity. The Ken- tucky derby is an event to which all Kentuckians look forward to with a just pride and this afternoon the new Louisville Jockey' Club ebtablishea new era in the history of racing In Kentucky, the home of the thorough- bred.. It will never be known just how many pairs of eyes centered upon little \Soup\ Perkins, as he guided Halms, under the wire an easy winner, but the most con- servative place the number at 26,000. At the downs there was a seen never before witnessed in the history Of that grand old course. The magnificent new grand stand, which has a seating capa- city of nearly 10,000, was inadequate to hold the vast throng. Every place of vantage was occupied. Men Jostled against each other and essayed to elbow their way through the throng in- the 4 effort to place their money, but the 15 bookies who were there to accommodate the public could not handle the money. Halma won the derby as he pleased and not once did Perkins find it neces- sary to use the rawhide, for the colt as- sumed the lead from the very fall of the flag and set the pace to the finish. When he passed the stand for the last time there were four good lengths of daylight between the son of Hanover and the hard -ridden Basso, who was second. Halma'• odds were 4 to 1 to win and 3 to 5 for thp place. They lined up and at the first attempt were sent away well bunched, with Halms showing in front by a neck, Basso second, Laureate third and Cure- ator last. There was not a length's dif- ference, however, between the tour horses, At the half Halma led by a neck, with Laureate second and Cure- ator third. Halma and Laureate went neck and neck around the lower turn and at the three-quarters Heinle led by a neck. At the finish Halms showed in front by four lengths. with Basso second and Laureate third by the same distance, and Cureator last by five lengths. The Kentucky derby, for 3 -year -olds, colts and fillies, closed with seven nom- inations; stake worth 23,300; one mile and a half. Byron MeClelland's black colt Halma, blr Hanover and Juila L., won, Basso second, Laureate third; sent his left over on the jaw. Kilraie fell like a log to the floor, and although he managed to get up within the re- quired 10 seconds, the referee, Tim Hurst stopped the bout at the request of the police. Jake would have been put out with one more punch. The time of the last round was one minute and 19 seconds; time of the fight, one hour and ‘20 minutes and 20 seconds. Although Kilrain arose within th- stipulated 10 seconds, O'Donnell was awarded the decision, the bout virtual- ly ending in a knockout. SIGNE; OF REVOLT IN NICARAGUA A Special Cablegram Says That Fighting cease ,^nes,Aletrtedu Begun. -- • New York, May 6.-A special telegram to the World from Tegucigalpa, Hon- duras, today, says: Fighting has begun in Granada, Nic- aragua. Disorder is reported from Leon also. Word comes from there that the followers of Ortiz, Zerula and Macherro have united to make war on Zelaya. The Honduras troops concentrated at Cape Gracia,' will remain there, as it is feared the threatened outbreak on the Mosquito reservation may extehd here. Troops at Amalpa will be cliW tributed along the coast. General Bo- nilla will take 4,000 men and go to President Zelaya's aid if requested. The evacuation of Corinto and the sailing of British ships is announced. Wealsington, May 6. -The Alert ait rived at San Juan Del Bur late Patur- day night. The Alert will protect Amer- ican interests on the Pacifig'side of Nic- aragua in the ease of a revolution. GUZMAN NOT ADVISED. Washington, May 6. -Dr. Guzman, the Nicaraguan minister, had not been advised up to 2 o'clock today of the reported revolution in Nicaragua,' He has expected the sailing of the British fleet would have a quieting effect on public sentiment. This expectation was strengthened when word came that Vice Admiral Stephenson fired a salute to the Nicaraguan flag when it was again hoisted over Corinto yestergay. This courtesy was regarded as doing much to heal the, wounds made by the -incident. Dr. Guzman's last official cable said simply: \Ships sailed.\ LUMBEit AND BANKING FIRM FAILS P. Clark • Co. of Minneapolis Close the Doors of Their House. Minneapolis, May 6. -The lumber and banking firm of N. P. Clark & Co. of St. Cloud, Minn., and Minneapolis, filed an assignment at St. Cloud Saturday to Lucas Kelly, the Sauk Centre bank- er. The fact was kept secret until to- day. Deposits in the bank at St. Cloud amounted to 1125,000 and the amounts due other local creditors makes a total of 1150,000 or $175,000. During the past week a hundred or more deeds and mortgages have been recorded in St. Cloud as securities to depositors and private creditors. There is a doubt In legal circles -Whether these transactions will hold. The liabilitiee will not exceed half a million and the assets are variously es- timated as high as a million and a half, but owing to recent transfers $1,000,000 Is probably nearer the figure. N. P. Clark did not make a personal assign- ment. He practically entrusted the whole business of the firm to his nephew, Fred H. Clark. There is a ru- mor that the failure was due to \flyers\ In wheat and corn. F. H. Clark denied this emphatically. O'DONNELL kNOCe•D OCT KII.RAIN The Baltimore Pte..... - Lasted .Twenty One Hounds. Coney Island, May 6. -The fact that Jake Kilrain and Steve O'Donnell were to meet here tonight at catch -weights In a 25 -round go, attracted a large crowd of sports.

He was knocked down in the third round and Holmes fell over him. Corbett led in the fifth and sixth, and in the latter he smashed Holmes right and left on the body and face at will. Holmes was very groggy. He stopped after Corbett had smashed him twice in the face, and Corbett was, announced the win- ner. The event of the evening was then In order. There were about 6,000 in the house when the announeer gave out the names of the seconds. Champion Cor- bett was not in the house. O'Donnell climbed through the ropes at 9:60. MI - rain arrived • minute later, and in comparison with his tall opponent., he looked an elephant O'Donneits weight was said to be 180 pounds and Kilrain's 30 pounds more. The men shook hands and Kilrain looked very beefy when stripped. FIGHT 4 ROUNDS. Inthe first round both men sparred carefully for a minute. Kiirain led his left on the neck and O'Donnell went to hie knees. O'Donnell jabbed Kilrain on the chest. Kilrain punched his left in- to O'Donnell's chin and got away from • swim.

HAWAII VERY UNEASY Nations Infor.ned That Restora- tion Is Coming Soon. THE QUEEN IS TO BE SEATED Bishop Willis of the English Church the Head of the Movennent.. - San Francisco, May 8.-.Advioes by the steamer Gaelic, dated Honolulu, April 28: Minister Hatch has received a com- munication from Secretary Gresham, through United States Minister Willis, 1,ogallid to naturalized Hawaiians ap- plylag for the protection of the United States. The communication deals en- tirely with the case of J. F. Bowler, who Called upon the United States te Interfere in his behalf. Bowler was .oenvented of a charge of a misprision of treason in connection with the recent rebellion. Mr. Gresham states that the United States government can not in- terfere and in giving reasons calls at- tention to the fact that Bowler has taken the oath of allegiance required for becoming a naturalized citizen of Hawaii. No reference is made to the other prisoners coming under possible Jurisdiction. Secretary Gresham's let- ter will be made public at a meeting of the council to be held this week. ENGLISH AT WORK. Evidence is at hand which shows that British influence is at work in Hono- lulu. ghe natives are in a state of ex- pectancy and word has been passed quietly among them that within a 'short space of time Phstoration would be a fact. In that event Lilluokalani is to be made queen. Bishop Willis, the head of the English church in this country, is said to be the man who is going among -the natives with the information. British Consul Haws is also mentioned in this connection. New hope on the part of the natives has given the an- nexation movement a setback. The government has received no news from Secretary Greshem about Mr. Thurston's alleged recall. Rumors of an impending revolution are still rife and the stories are of such a nature that no little alarm is felt In government circles. Information comes from the island of Hawaii to the effect that residents are contemplating seces- sion from the group, claiming as a rea- son for the step that they do not re- ceive their share of money for public improvements. I WANT IMMIGRANTS. It is the intention of the government azid s the planters to encourage by every means Immigration from Europe. Nee' gotlations are now upder way for more Portuguese.

Balfour and his escort left the train at Vauxhall railroad station • and were driven to Bow street police court In spite of the preceutions the news of Balfour's arrival quickly spread and the carriage in which he was placed was followed by a crowd who ehouted \Here's Jabez,\ etc. During the voy- age from Buenoll Ayres It appears that Balfour was generally cheerful, but at last he broke down and wept bitterly. The proceedings at the Bow street sta- tion were of the usual character. The prieoner was formally charged and re - mended until May 8 to enable the prose- cution to complete Its case against him.

DECIDED AGAINST THE CHURCH final , Disposition of the Long•Pending suit ler Vancouver Leads. Washington, May 6.-In\ the case of the corporation of the Catholic bishops or Nesqually, Washington territory, ye. John T. Gibbons, It. T. Yearman and the United States, the decision of the United States court for the dietrict of Washington was affirmed today by the supreme court. The act of congrees es- tablishing the territorial government of Oregon confirmed title to land not ex- ceeding 140 acres occupied as mission- ary stations among Indian tribes to which the missionary stations belonged. In February, 1887, the Catholic corpor- ation began suit for 640 acres adjoining the town of Vancouver, 430 acres of which were occupied by the government as a military reservation. The United States circuit court entered a decree in favor of defendants and dismissed the bill. MRS. STANFORD DEMURS TO THE SUIT Claim Set Up That the Government Has No Right to Bring Action . San Francisco, May 6 -Mrs. Jane L Stanford has tiled in the United States circuit court a demurrer to the suit brought by the government against the Stanford estate to recover 115,000.000 ad- vanced by the United States for the construction of the Central Pacific rail- road. Theodemurrer sets forth that the only obligation or liability ever created by the government in favor of the Cen- tral Pacific.was on the bonds guaran- teed by the government, which it I. claimed do not constitute a debt against the company or a right to demand from the company from bonds failing of re- demption. The demurrer continues that the only relief open to the government is the confiscation Of the cOrpOration. It is further intended that no valid claim was ever presented to Leland Stanford during his life or to hie widow since his death. This, it is claimed, vitiates any claim that the United States might have had. SOUTH DAKOTA NOT ENTINLED TO IT dartos -or --rnsrporte to the Indians Washington, May 6. -Secretary Smith decided today that South Dakota Is not entitled to 50.000 acres of valuable lands In the Yankton Biou:: reservation which the state recently took steps to secure. The entire reservation comprises about 168,000 acre!, and the 50,000 -acres claimed by the state included some of the most valuable lands in South Dakota. The reserve was to have been opened for set- tlement within a few days, but final ac- tion was deferred, pending the decision of the disputed question. It is now pre- sumable that the president will promul- gate the proclamation within a few days add that the opening will take place 30 days thereafter. FIGHT FOR THE FAIR MILLIONS \Big tout\ Executors of the First Will Hely. the Adtantege. San Francisco, May 6. -In the fight for the Fair millions, the \Big Four\ executors of the first will, Which Ito mysteriously disappeared from the county clerk's office, will have a decided advantage. Judge Stock today ruled that the stolen will must be disposed of before the later will, produced by Mrs. Nettie Craven, can be considered. The first will filed will therefore be the first contested. This is considered a matter of great importance to the proponents. for the tactics of the Fair children were to evade the forfeiture clause under th first will by supporting the second, the provisions of which are more to their liking. The decision giving priority to the probating of the first tiled will was un- expected and a blow to the children. who had expected that the Craven will would take precedence because of later date. The petition for probate of the first will will be heard on Wednesday, when it is expected that the attorneys of the Fair children will present their written grounds for opposition. Then, tt Is understood, the attorney for the executors will protest against the con- sideration of this opposition on the ground that the time for filing the contest has elapsed; that point having been allowed to pass In the efforts to secure recognition for the Craven will.

WITH A FULL BENCH Argument of Income Tax Cases Opened Before Court HAVE TWO DAYS' ARGUMENT W. G. Guthrie for the Appellants, Opened Followed by Assistant Attorney • 'sesteseat Watentry. Waehington, May 6. -The supreme court, with its full membership of nine justices on the bench, for the first time In many months, began toe hearing to- day of tile income tax suits. Jostler , Jackson of Tenteissee, who has been ab- sent from Washington the best part of the past year, seeking restoration to health, took his: seat with extraordi- nary interest attached to his presence, since he assumes practically the posi- tion of umpire upon 'the vital question oil principle upon which the taw is based. which divides the -other justices into equal factions. &vette. hteiteon did not appear to be feeble, but it was plainly evident that he was far from being a well man and that only by a strong ef- fort ha he sit throughout the hearing. But two arguments are to be made for each aide -by Attorney General Olney and Assistant Attorney General Whit- ney for the government, end by W. U. Guthrie and Joseph Choate for the ap- pellant., who are Messrs. Hyde and Pol- lock. Today Mr.' Guthrie delivered his speech, and Mr. Whitney. began his, which he will finish tomorrow. As the time aseigned is five hours to each side, the arguments will be Closed Wednes- day afternoon. Before Mr. Guthrie began, the chief Justice, after calling the case, stated that in response to a. suggestion of the attorney general, which the court inter- preted as virtually a motion for a re- hearing, the court had decided to permit counsel to go into all the questions In- volved. The rehearing had been depend- ent upon the attendance of Justice Jack- son. The court found it necessary to limit the argument to two on each side, but it was for counsel to say what time they would require. Thereupon Mr. Choate and Attorney General Olney, after consultation, announced that live hours for each side would be sufficient, and this time was granted. Judge Wil- son was also permitted, on behalf of John 0. Moore, to file a brief. Mr. Guthrie began by saying that counsel for the appellants in the cases had been subjected to considerable crit- icism for their motions for a rehearing. but they felt justified In the realization of the fact that there were many points still undecided In the definite and final adjudication, in which the entire coun- try was vitally interested and he as- sured all conoernea that thaoounsel for the appellants In the present case would approarth it in a spirit of highest pa- triotism and with no desire for mere self-aggrandizement. He said that the question involved was a constitutional one, and added: \The constitution is the political creed and conscience of the nation which must control and rule our stiny ; I soJaj s this court shall reserVe WIYLACt\ fig lo If s relief and its spirit, or permit the darkness of error to affront its light, so will our fu- ture see progress or decline, happiness or misery, glory or shame. There can be no law inconsistent with the funda- mental law and a century of errors can not overrule the constitution. The ques- tion is not to be determined by Conald-' erations of present expediency, or prac- ticability, or hardship, but according to the lights, the purposes, the inten- tion of the framers, and as they intend- ed the constitution to operate, so must we enforce it today. \The people are not to be deprived of inherited rights, such as are imbedded in our constitution, by mere precedent or the: technical application of rule of stare decisle.\ Assistant Attorney General Whitney, in behalf of the government, followed Hr. Guthrie, He made a strong argu- ment In favor of inoomes from rents be- ing taxable.
