Special by The Uxitkd Pkess.
PCTTE,Mont, Sept 20. Tho depu-
, ty sheriff of Silver Bow brought a
highly sensational story of murder to
tho sheriff's office last night The
story came second-handed to tho of
ficer from one A. Willard, a wood
hauler, who lives in a cabiD in tho
hills about five miles north of Silver
Bow. About two days ago Willard
t was out in tho hills looking for his
mules, when ho met a stranger riding
j on horseback. Tho man said ho had
been out all night and complained of
hunger. Willard invited the stranger
to his cabin, which invitation was
promptly accepted, and tho two rode
together toward tho cabin. WhUo
they were riding along Willard sud
denly hoard some ono say, "I have
found yon at last; throw up your
hands!" As ho heard this ho turned
and saw a second singer upon a
gray Itorso covoring stranger number
ono with a donble-barreled shotgun.
As tho arms of number ono went up
tho gun was discharged, lwth
loads taking effect under tho
arms and causing instant death.
As ho fell tho stranger dismounted,
broke his gun and dropped in two
fresh cartridges, after which he
turned and said "good morning" lo
Willard, pleasantly. This greeting
gave Willard ronewed courage its ho
thought tho last two charges must be
intended for him.
In oxplauation of his conduct tho
last stranger said ho had been after
his man all night; that ho had cut a
man, below Anaconda, and had then
stolen tho horse upon which to make
his escape. Ho was tho sheriff of
Deer Lodge county andhadheenon
the trail ever sinco, determined to
capture tho man or die trying it. Ho
had -shot his prisoner because he was
a desperate man and no chances
would be safe with him. "Now Pve
got him," said tho supposed sheriff,
"and what nm T rrmnrr to in iritli
j him?" Willard advised him to tie tho !
body on the back of his horse and'
carry it off in that way, which was j
dono. Willard, f course, believed I
the man's story about being au officer
of tho law, and allowed him to go1
without following. It is his opinion
that tho body was dumped in tjio
"nearest prospect hole. "

A TURKISH WAR SHIP
Lost Off the Japanese Coast.
Special to The Astoiuax.i
Sax Fbaxcisco, Sept 20. John M.
Birch, late United States consul at
Nagasaki, Japan, arrived here on the
Qallic. Just prior to his departure
from Nagasaki Consul Birch was en
tertained on board of tho ship Ertro
goul, Osman Pasha giving several din
ner parties on board tho vessel to the
officers from tho shore. In speaking
of the disaster to the vessel, as re
ported in yesterday's dispatches, Con
sul Birch said last evening:
"It is not surprising to me to hear
of the loss of the Ertrogoul off the
coast of Hiago. It is a rough and per
ilous section of the Japanese coast,
and most modern war ships would bo
in danger there to a certain extent.
The Ertrogoul wa3 a rotten old hulk,
and when I looked at her I marvelled
that any civilized nation would send
human beings afloat in such a craft
She was scarcely fitted for firewood.
It looked to me as if the Turkish gov
ernment had sent her 500 men out on
board the Ertrogoul for tho express
purpose of sinking them to the bottom
of the sea."

EmililE'S L.AST TRAGEDY.
Her Poor Dupe Dies With Her.
Special to The astobiax.
New Yobk, Sept 20. Gossip has
robbed the double suicide of the
German actress Emflie Rossi and her
artist lover, Gustav Noch of much of
its tender romance. It appears now
that the girl did not love Noch and it
seems probable that he was her dupe
in so far that he doubtless believed
she loved him as he loved her. Ac
cording to tho opinion of those who
knew tho girl best, her object in-inducing
Noch to die with her was
that she might make in death,
since she could not in
life, at least one intensely theatrical
and tragic appearance before tho
public. She made a fool of -Koch and
induced him to secure a divorce from
his wife, while she was in love with a
married man in Hamburg. Her
mother wanted her to marry the rich
Hamburger, but she refused. Her
mother did not learn of the other
lover till Emflie left for this country;
then she wrote bitterly upbraiding her
daughter. This, together with her ill
success as au actress, it is believed,
led to the tragedy.
One of Fulton's Boats.
B. W. Camp, one of tho postoffice
inspectors of this district, has made
some curious discoveries whilo travel
ing over the country in search of those
who endeavor to evade Uncle Sam's
postal laws. One of these discoveries
has a historical interest in view of the
fact that it has reference to the first
building of steamboats by Robert Ful
ton. Away up in Duluth, Minn., is tho
hull of the Stillman Witt, stran Jed
on tho mud banks, whilo her engines
have been removed and are used to
run a shinglo mill. This boat, accord
ing to Mr. Camp's information, wa3
ono of thrco originally constructed by
Fulton, and she ran for a timo between
Now York and Albany. Shortly
after tho completion of tho Erie canal
tho Witt was towed through the canal
to Buffalo, the guards and paddle
boxes having been removed, and for a
number of years was engaged in the
lako traffic between that point and
Cleveland. Tho baptismal namo of
the boat is not now known, and the
present namo is that of an old-time
lake captain who owned her after she
left the Hudsou river. Capt Minch,
of Buffalo, is authority for the state
ment that tho Witt is one of tho orig
inal three. If tho old boat can be put
together again, it is proposed to run
her down tho lake and exhibit her at
the 1892 exnosition. as no bettor illus

Paris, Sept 20. The Qaulsan pub

an account of a distressing case of
miscarriage of justice.
The quartermaster of a dragoon
regiment in Silesia was found dead in
the street with his skull cleft. Three
young recruits of that aegiment were
arrested near the spot and as the
quartermaster had the bad rep
utation of being a martinet and had
often reported them for punishment
on drill they were suspected ot the
murder, tried by a court-martial and
sentenced to death. The parents of
the lads tried to procure a reprieve
with a view to reopening the case and
offered heavy bail. The-father of one
of them, Mr. Pupson, a millionaire of
Moscow, undertook to deposit 100,000
rubbles for that purpose, but all en
treaties were unavailing and the three
recruits were executed without even
the delay necessary to receive an
answer to the petition for reprieve.
Two days after tho execution the, wife
of a farrier of Silesia informed the
military authorities that the real
murderer was her husband who had
