The plaintiff's counsel said the plalnlirt

points hold in all tlio other cases , and a stipu
lation to that effect would bo tiled.
The court then announced that it would
listen to motions in cases on the docket.

People AfToctcit by It.
As appears from above , there Is a prospect
that thju Ilclfcnstoln case will bo at length
reached lu the United States court.
The case Is regarded by some as com
plicated , hut is set forth plainly in the follow
ing statement by ono of the oldest citizen :
and ono of the best Informed gentlemen 01 :
the subject in Omaha :
' 'Tho so-called Ilclfcnstoln claim date :
t back to the year 1857. It originated In t
Claim of Ilolfcnatohi , Gore & Co. , a wholesale
grocery house of St. Louis , against Roberl
Shields. Shields built the store building on
i Fnrimm strcot now occupied by John Caul
Held , and did business thero. IIo owed Hoi
fenstolnGoro & Co.u , small amount forgoods ,
Ho was sued by the latter In 1807. who ob
taincd n Judgment against him in 1853. Ex
ecution was issued on the undivided halt ol
100 acres ol' laud la the north part of the
city , lying between Sherman avenue on the
east and Kaundors street on the west.Shiolds
having ' /reviously aold the other undivided
half. The interest levied upon by Holfon-
Blo'ii ' , Gore & Co. was sold nt sheriff's sale in
July , 1858 , nnd bought In by that firm foi
fOu. There wns only ono bouso on the land
nt that tlmo. nnd thnt was where Shields
lived. That Identical house Is still standlnp
or was n year or two ago , on the west sldo ol
Klghtoenth strcot , near Grace , and is owned
by John W. Givln , the contractor.
"Shields entered this land , that la , pur
chased It from the government under the
provisions ot the pro-cmptlon law , which
pave to the first bona-fldo settler the rights
to buy the land at 81.35 per ncro.
' About 1659-GO , the land had Increased It
raluo to such an extent as to bring on lltlga
tlon by parties who thought they saw i
chnnco to got it away from Shields. HI :
entry wns attacked. Ho was charged wltl
fraud , etc , , and his entry was cancelled nm
the land ordered by the commissioner of tin
poneml land oftlco to bo sold to the highes
It was accordingly sold at auction. E. "V
Smith bought thu eighty seres comprised li
his addition to the city , and Gilbert 0
Moncll the other eighty acres. As the lain
Increased in value the litigation Increased
It seems that the uncertainties of the lav
, were us great then as now. Tbo purchases o
K. V. Smith and Moiu'll were cancelled am
- Vho Shields entry reinstated. Then the ens
went into the United States circuit court
where the Shields entry was again cancollci
nud the entries of Smith and Moncll rein
'Btatod. An appeal wns then taken to th
supreme court of the United States , pondiui
which the whole matter was settled pei
"Helfonstcln was n party to the suit nm
Ills claim was adjusted with the others. Thi
was nearly thirty years ugo. It was consid
orcd a final settlement by nil parties. Th
land was then laid out iu additions to th
city. The lots sold nnd Improved nnd the entire
tire tract Is now nearly covered with build
lugs. Tlio Holfenstoln suits commence
Within the last year or two have not th
slightest foundation in Justice or equity bu
throw a cloud over the tltlo to the prcsen
owners , mid a largo price , proportionate ) t
the ability or credulity of the owner I
charged for n release or cancellation of th
pretended claim. It Is a very prolltnblo bus :
, , ness for Hclfensteln or his lawyers and w !
doubtless continue to bo until the cases cube
bo reached in court. Ono owner paid $ J.OO
for a release some tlmo since , being forced t
do It to complete n salo. "

Mr. Qromloy has had the map framed

"Mitchell's Travelers' Guido Through

Croon ana red , the latter being the body
of the plat and the former the state

"West of Missouri is a blank marked

Who the original owner of the guide
was and how ho came to leave it in the
wilds of Montana ( where Sir. Gormloy
ound it ) Is a subject for speculation.
Mr. Gormloy , however , holiovos , that ho
can trace It to un unfortunate minor
who dlod back in tha early 50s while en
gaged in u frenzied hunt for a lost mine.
In personal nppoaranco Mr. Gormloy IE
above the medium height , sandy haired
and bearded , and indicates in his every
movement the possession of sinews ol
stool. Ho talks fluently , uses good lan
guage , and owing to a peculiar ornost'
ness of manner impresses ono with im
plicit belief in all his statements. Yes
terday afternoon ho told the following
interesting story of the "find" and the
tragic death of lloraco Thompson :
"It was last May , " began Air. Gorin
loy , "and I was chopping timber In
Chouteau county , Montana. "Wo had
moved our camp several times during
the spring , each tlmo passing doepei
into the pine woods and getting farthoi
and farther nway from civilization ,
On the day I made this discovery we
must have boon at least twenty-five
miles from a house. The weather wat
beautiful. Just sharp enough to send
the blood singing through your volm
and adding enough strength to youi
arms to send the nxoau inch deeper ink
the bark than on a mlle afternoon. I
was alone , but away oil In the woods to
the right and loft of mo the faint chuck
chuck , chuck of the other boys' axes
could bo heard , scarcely louder than
the tapping of n woodpecker.
"I had started on my third trco sinct
dinner. It was a plno , like all the
others , and something over four fee
through. As I stopped up nnd scannoi
it I failed to notice that it was hollow
but at the first stroke found that out
But the reverberation given out wns sc
dull that I judged the hollow to bo vori
small and of no consequence
I struck it again , am
as the axo-blado bedded itscl
in the wood a fat squirrel leaped out o
the trunk through un aporaturo about a :
big as a good-sized biscuit. * A ncstl' ' . '
exclaimed beneath my breath ; 'wo'll soi
to that1 ! and I at once sot to work wld
onlng the cavity , meanwhile keeping i
bright eye out for whatever might nt
tempt to escape.
"Tho chips flow lively nnd the lioli
grow largo enough to introduce one'
head. I noticed then that the wood cut ol
was nothing but bark grown Inward will
the aging of the tree , which doubtlos
would have completely covered the hoi
if given years enough. Suddenly I drop
jjcd my oxo to the ground and thrust nr
hand Into the hollow. There , lying at th'
bottom , on a soft bed of decaying wood
was a sheet of paper neatly folded. In I
was the map nnd guide , exactly as yo
see it now , and they had uuroly been li
that tree forty or llfty yours. I3ut tin
papers were not the only articles lockci
in that natural safe.
"Leaning against the wall , muzzle ti ]
as though placed tholr by its owner , wa
un old flintlock musket , such as ou
grandfathers sighted at Now Orleans
And clinging to the barrel was some
thing whiter than the papers. This ol
jcct rattled as I grasp the gun and si !
down the iron tube until It foil ever in
"It was the skeleton of a right hnni
"I didn't do much more work that ii
tcrnoon. I bore ray treasures otT t
camp and there examined them. Yo
BOO for yourself whet the travelers'guid
is , and as for the musket , it did nc
differ materially from thousands of othc
old shooting irons. However , filed int
the barrel , not many inches from th
muzzle , were the letters II. E. T. , ov
dontly the Initials of the owner. Pee
follo\vt Ills right liand had gripped
that weapon unto death. Even death
was powerless to wroribh tlmt musket
from him. IIo meant to Inko U with
him Into that strange Hind unknown to
us nnd protect his spirit with H thoro.
At least forty , nnd pl-obably fifty yenrs
that bond , gun nnd guide hnd lain In the
troo. I tun euro of that , for the ingrow
ing bark that covoped the hole must
have tnkon that lotagth of tlrao to
bceomo ni I found It.
"And I bdllovo I know the unfortu
nate who lost his handt As I told of my
find in camp that night ono of the boys ,
who had boon in Montana several years ,
gave the history of two men's uoarch for
the lost Devil's ' IIooFinlno :
44 'Few know of the existence of this
nugget pocket , and ns the early years of
the gold times passed aivuy , the people
possessing the secret died ono by ono
until a patriarchal Indian wns the last
loft. lie died , and in dying gnvo the

oung trapnor who watched nt his
cathbed. This trapper was Horitco
'hompson , who had come to tlio sunset
and , llko many others , for fame and
ortuno from the east

ontly burled Thompson took a friend
nto his confidence , nnd together they
ot out to find Devil's Hoof mine. But
ho confidence that Thompson gave his
ompanion wns but parti.xl. Ho steadily
of used to allow tlio ether a sight of the
lap , and In other than general terms
pOKO not of the mine's whereabouts ,
" 'Thoy left mankind far 16 the south
nd .westward nnd rode on for many
ays. Thompson's friend grow Busplc-
ous ns they ncarcd their destination ,
nil nt length resolved to got the mop.
lo feared that when tlio gold was really
ound thnt Thompson would desert hi m
nd allow him to dlo In tlio wilderness.
Mioy hnd an altercation , but Thompson
got the bettor of the mutineer. Fired
or revenge , the ether hold his pence for
omo days until his chance should como.
't came at lost.
44 'Ono evening Horace announced
heir journey about completed. As there
vas an extra gun and a number of ether
isoloss articles in their packs , they do-
idod to hide them nway for the lime
joing , and perhaps got tliotu on tlioir
eturn trip. A hollow tree was found ,
und Thompson , on hltj hands and knees ,
received the nrticlcs from his comrade
tvnd placed thorn , ono by ono , in the holo.
