-.1^ i^K Post :^Reynolds* City on the^K!k Creek, and due west 40^nilea from Blackfoot, is the only mining^.own in Montana which has been devas^^tated by the fiery element, an account^sj which was given in the Post. At^pwent it is becoming fast depopulated^)fi -tampede for the new Eldorado^aorth of here, near Tobacco Plains.^The excitement incident to packing up^and removing to the new mines gives^'.his camp a momentary lively appear^^ance, but will soon subside. Elk C^eek^is not worked much now; only large^-ompanies, with plenty of capital to^.-omnience with, can make work remun-^'aiivr. Some six or seven or these are^at work along the creek, in claims that^*iave been pronounced worthless by their^^ormf-r owners, but yield handsomely^aow. One flume, with half a dozen^aand*^. during the summer has averaged^$1700 \*.-r week. John Day, McUinnis.^dilk. Billy Weasel, and numerous other^^ributaries of Elk, have had to suspend^:|w-ra:ioun entirely, although not work^^ed out yet, on account of the scarcity of^*ater. But the boys are goiug to win-^1st on their claims to be ready in spring,^while the snow is melting, to take out^i^ much money as they have this year.
Theburnt portion of the town com^^prises the best part of the buildings, but^3e^er will be rebuilt. A sufficient num^^r of empty houses still remain, where^'.lie Iomt* by the fire sought and found^ihelter.
Ofcourse this, as well as any other^^amp in Montana, is approached only^i^ver one of those (in Montana) una^^voidable
ffaicL,directly alter the discovery of^Elk, in 'Go, was cut by the miners,^^hroiiirh ten miles of timber, to connect^*ith Deer Lodge Valley. Henry Mulky^received a charter for this trail and lev^^ied toll even on the very men who made^'t- Mr. M. went off, since which time^one J. W. Mover, squatted on the road,^^-nd extorts dust from every traveler.^The only improvement on this toll road(V)^was made by the citizens of Reynolds,^and consist ot a good track hewn, at a^lost of ^RH). through the dense growth^of tall timber from the east end of the^city to the toll gate. Formerly the gate^^as below where the independent Black^foot trail comes in, but the greedy toll^leeper, who never done an hour's work^'^n this trail, even removed his extortion^g*^te above the junction of this and the^old trail, and now levies tax on every^^ne coming even from that direction. It^l* an easy way to make a living, and^undoubtedly don't require much labor^^f energy; but, from all accounts, the^toll machine does not run smooth for^Sometimes a belligerent individ^^ual comes along, refuses to pay toll, and^10 that case Mr. Extortioner invariably^comes out second best. Should the citi^'ens ot Reynolds refuse in a body to pay^on this trail, they should ^be bus.^^*^Qed, notwithstanding this monopoly^J^ claimed to be protected bv a charter^wO1 the LerTtalature of Montana. The^facte were gathered from a relia^W^ citizen of Reynolds, and implicit^^ith may be placed in them. Some en-^^rprhnng iudividual may be pleased to^loon that a small trail leading from^-to Deep has as yet no toll gate on^^ but an empty shanty half wav offers^^e greatest inducement to go into busi-^immediately without much capital.
