ON THE ALERT.
Helena ; Feb. ' 9. Although proceed-.
lngsm -the contest' over, the' estate of
Millionaire Davis1 are temporarily
stopped, the contestants are on the alert;
The Boot faction, which alleges that the
will is a forgery, made a move today, the
object of which is to establish the fact
that the conspiracy was entered into - on
the part of John A.' Davis, the sole
legatee by the will, and Erwin Davis, of
New ' York, both brothers of deceased.
The manager of the Western Union tele
graph ottace ot this city was called upon
to produce certain telegrams, sent and
received by Erwin Davis, who, it is said,
is in debt to the estate about $600,000.
Certain telegrams were shown the . court
commissioners'' but the one most par
ticularly desired by the Root faction was
one alleged to have bgen sent to or re
ceived from the only living -witness to
the will. Fully six weeks will elapse
before the Drobating of the will can be
resumed, in view of the decision of the
supreme court ordertng trie appointment

Chicago. Feb. 9. The United States
favernment has authorized a test at Fort
heridan of a new gun 9 ' feet long,
said to be capable of throwing dynamite
or other high explosive shells a distance
of five miles thousands of times in suc

The inventor ' is Louis Gathmann. : of
Chicago. The ehief novel feature of the
use of liquidified carbonic acid gas deli v

length of the bore at the instant of die

generated, but as a "cooler" after the
charge has left the gun. By another de
vice pneumatic pressure is produced
with powder. - Should this invention
prove a success, Gethmann expects
that the existing systems of coast de
fense particularly would be revolution
