HAS A- LARGER CIRCU'LA
TION Tl4AN ANY OTHER
NE WSPA PE R I TJIE TEB
From Friday's Daily.
THE OVERLAND.- The mianner i
"rhich a portion ofthbs line is run, I regard as a
bhest upon the public, and unless speedily rse
Lied in supplying the necessary stock. will be
~.nathematized by every passenger compelled to
'ass over it. as little less than down right robbery.
I call the attention of Mr. Pollinger to the con
*emp'ible cattle on the Benton Division : the ab
--nce of grain at a number of the stations to feed
.is "steak," and btir pittable condition from over
work and nothing to eat. The travelling public
. emand a remedy at once. It is
rumored here that Capt. Wall, in view of the de
;p.orable manner in which this division of the Over
.and is conducted, is about to establish an oppu.i
* on line, to be made up from his bull tralns, and
:u ply regularly between Helena and Beatem. I
dlviee the people of the up country who are in a
(.nrry to reach the river, to await the establishment
.f the "oppusition,' assured that they will be am
i !y a-commodate 1, and get a comparatively quick
:rip and no walking passage for their money.
The above is an extrat from a letter by R. E.
i ink to the llerald. dated Benton. May 24. It is
an unwarranted attack upon Gov. Pollinger, an
.ccommodating gentleman and one of the best Dl
vision Agents in the employ of Wells, Fargo & Co.
The statement of lack of grain is wholly ntrue.
Mr. Pollinger informs as that there is now and has
I een all the time at every station on his Division,
rm :2Z to 100 busheis of grain. At the time of Mr.
t'isk'l trip, the unprecedented storm had rendeed
.he roads almost totally impassable for teams, which
teas not particularly the fault of Mr. Pollinger. If
there was fault to be found it slhould have been
,und with Mr. Wm. i. Taylor. Superintendent
.1f the We ls. Fargo line north of Salt Lake, and
under whose supervision in the last year It e
been the best conducted stage route in the West.
This wesubmit to the public as incontrovertible.
MIr. Follinger is not in any manner responsible for
ack of stock on his line. It is beyond his otola l
The Company last winter made arraageasaets for
'he complete equipment of the Benton road with
C( ncord coaches and the best Amerian t eans. We
-aw a dispatch last night from Mr. Tracy, Agent,
dated Salt lake, May.7, stating that 10 mew Cos*
cord coaches and 20, tour horse American teams,
r.ewly equipped, were being hurried forward for
'he Northern road as rapidly as possible. The
unexpected rains having brought the boats in
ouoner than expected, also detained the trasalt of
tha horses and coaches from the States, and by
this unavoidable combination of circumstances the
;ine is not in the complete equipment purposed.
The probability is that Mr. Fisk feels hurt at the
payment of his fare to Benton, and vents his spleen
against Mr. Pollinger per c,'nseqaence. He has
persistently Importuned the Agents and Superbin
rendents of Wells. Fargo & Co., for the last year
.or a "dead head" ticket and has been as persist
ent.y refused, until on his recent trip east he,
through his "Three Newspapers in Montana" im
,or-ance likely, procured a free pass from the end
,f the Railroad to Helena, from Lewis McLane,
President of the Company. Mr. F. nsed this pass
to its full extent. arriving a few days since; and
uow, because he has to pay #25 for passage to
I~enton, "thetravelling public demand a remedy.'
It is not difficult to see the animus of this guardian
,f the public weal, and where the "gross imposi
tion' comes in from the grateful "responsible." If
you want to "throw dirt" do not throw it at a man
who is doing his duty. and try to appreximate to
DEER LODGE ITEMS.-Our friend Sam
T. Hauser, whose energy and endurance are aur
; as.d only by a steam engine, arrived yesterday
:om Philipsburg and reports very favorably in re
c-ard to the prospects of not only his own mill but
Sf the whole district. The St. Louis & Montasa
Mining Company's mill is now running day and
right. There are seven feet of solid quartz on the
i;,rth end of the Hope lode that wtll average $100
'o the ton. This company has a large amount of
machinery en route from Fort Benton, which will
ncrease the working power of the mill greatly.
We are credibly informed that the company will
dlo all the custom work desirad as soon as the boiler
and machinery arrives from Benton. This will af
t,'rd a rare opportunity to those who own lodes in
that district and who are unable to build mills to
develop their property without any cost to them
selves. Judging from the superior character ofthe
',uartz in that vicinity it will far more than pay for
the vigorons development of the lodes.
Wuo Is " STUCK."-The Ilerald,under
its present ad interim conduct,which we are pleased
to acknowledge as courteous and respectable,
!rank!y admits the "'sell" on the poetry business
and "leaves it to the public who are the wornt
sold," the POST or Herald. We want a word in
right here. We noticed the poem, and its merit is
undisputed. We were bored an hour next mmon
ing with the invisible genius of the "poet," and
taxed ten minutes ia the evening to write him up.
We were both in the game together-Herald and
'osr--but we said "Domino" first and left our
"cotem." with the "double six" on hand. The
(a:ette had up a side bet on the game. Wonder it
it ront take down its "stack" this morning i The

MILITARY R1ESERVATION.-We were
kindly shown in the Surveyor General's omce yes
terday an instrument which is a perfect autograph
album -a curious and interesting souvenir of the
Circumlocution oflie. It is G. O, 14, dated Fort

which Fort Ellis i. located. immediately above

It was approved and forwarded In turn by Colonel

LooK OUT FOR THE ASSfaESSOR.-The in
termiable and tenacious County Assessor, who
with his fellow myrraidozms, has harassed this com
munity for the past four moaths, to the utmost ex
teat of human enduraaoe,gives notice that June Is
is the day fixed by law fur roturning all Assess
ment Lists. We have been driven to distraction
by their persistent inqairies ooscering our landed
interests, gold and silver plate, monies loaned, etc.
These interrogatories, with a dozsn others of equal
impudenee, wereat first propounded to us private

have not only attacked us on the highway, but
with fiendish malignity have actaally caused to be

to be possessed, and on the public
streets of this city, demanded that we
sign a statement which would subject our habi
tation to the incursions of robbers, our ,person to
the designing snares of scores of widows and our
progeny to the damning legacy of "parents once
wealthy, but in after life greatly embarrassed." We
indignatly refused to sign the document-taking

V RBONG SHIPPED -The editor ac
knowledges the receipt of a sixteen-lpage commnu
-ication, " per steaaler Nile," post-marked "" Fort
Hawley, May 18th." It was evidently misdirected,
is stupidly preachy, and decidedly too abun
dant in the Gospel and orthodox jurisprudlence
to be about Indians or steamboats, or prove inter
esting to oar readers. It is at the service of any
aspiring amateur who desires to inform the " dear
people " bow to save slab-sided sinners or impari'
digitated mountain sardines. "Friends of the
family " are hereafter respectfully solicited to send
as Infernal machines, " K. K. L warnings," yel
low fever lothes--or even a " poet "-in prefer
aoee to such a British-oll-and-ipecac effusion as
acknowledged. Our opinion is that were mankind
in general subjected to such a nauseating dose as
we reoetred the millenium would have to be indef
initely postponed, and the Cretan revolution would
simmer into a Mohammedan jubilee.

RECORD Of THE RING.--The people
of the United States, New Jersey, and other for.
eign parts, or wholes, have the assuranoe of our
most distinguished condolenoe for their Intellectual
saufferin, and destitution of news. In being out of
from telegrphbis communloation with Moetana.
Yesterday, the line took a spasmodic electrical
breath, and fashed us the result of two fights.
The first was foeght accord;ng to the roles of the
Ameriean "whisky ring," between the eavry
weight champion, African Moses, and, as amateur
pugilist named Coo. Law, resulting in the letter
getting knocked out of time in eleven rounds.
The bottle-holder of the latter was " bottled."
Having thrown up everything he could think of
previous to the last round, there was no " sponge
elevated," although one would bein good service
to remove the stains from the eharacter of " M
ses," whitch was badly damaged in the contest,
The MuCoole and Coburn Aght was postponed, in
conesqeemoe of their chief backers getting on a
glorious old "bum" over the success of the
champion in the former. The line was workinL
badly east of Salt Lake, or we would never have
received the above news; but it is expected a
huge grist of something better will be through to
day. A spetlal last night said that the literary
world was in senond-olass mourning over the
disappearance of the Hwads " polo."
KAMAK, LEVY & Co.-The immense
--ik brought up the river by this Arm will arrive
in Heleslna a aew days, and we advise a!l who
wish to purchase a superior article of ready-made
clothing at wholesale. at figures much below the
ruling prices. to give Kamak, Levy & Co.s goods
an inspection before selecting elsewhere. Besides
a complete assortment of Gent's andBoy's clothing,
gent's farishaing goods, shirts, wrappers, etc., they
lave a splendid invoice of cutlery, pocket and ta
ble, of the very best mansubtur. and at irices
that eannot fail to attract attention. Look at their
goods, price them and satisfy yourselves.
ATTEMPTED HoBBERY.-A bold at
tempt at robbery was made upon Mr. M. C. Far.
well at Boseman. several nighis ago, by one
Hughes. Mr. Farwell, while sitting in the County
Treasurer's oflfce at Bozeman City, was called out
side about nine o'clock in the evening by this man
-lughes, who attacked him and endeavored to
wrest a package of money away from him. Dur
ing the attempt Mr. Farwell's friends stepped out
and the robber fled. Such characters deserve no
meroy-justice would hang them.
FOR AMERICA.-Mr. Joseph C. Hammel,
Deputy Postmaster at Virginia City for the past
two years, is in town ea emate to the States-Min
nesota we believe. Mr. II. won hosts of friends i
Montana. He goes home to resume the practice o.
his profession-the law- and carries with 'him the
kindliest wishes of all who had the pleasure of his
acquaiatance. Adios, Joo.

Saturday that it was only neeessary Ior a ma to
ta ZUgdS to feemmet himself to the adela
ties of modera Demeorasy. In substatiStlon
aumeroes pleearde annoaueed on saturday that as
soon as it got dark that night a mas of--well !
we'll my Demoerats, would hold a love east over
Grimes, of 'gol old seat' memery: (RIp) Van
Winkle, pen whom they had dlseovered some
pemocratie membroes; Fowler, who is courting
one of Johna's daughters; Henderson. who was
an original seoessl oult; Boss, who had just re
deemed himselt for publishing a "free soil" S harpe"
rife paper In bloody Kamneas and a eouple of (per)
jurists who unfortunately for them neglected to die
when an honorable epitaph might have been in
scribed upon their tombs. Night came; with it the
"mass," ifa "gross" of men is convertible with
that word--asembled in the friendly darkesq
wber3 Travis can raise a bigger crowd in a minute
with one old booking cayuse than John II. Shober,
chairman, did in twelve hours with a hundred post
ers, a wheezy brass band and the seven bucking
caynses of the Senate. Col. H. P. A. Smith, the
original alphabetical Smith, opened the circus with
a girad entree on two horses.known as 'Disloyalty"
and "assumed Loyalty." He got flopped, rended
his raiment and retired amid the boisterous silence.
Immediately re-appearing with a borrowed gown,
he offered a resolution that " in the action of the
even Senators (naming them) we are proud and
happy to reoognise the faet that even in the Re
publican party men exist who can forget party feel
ings and resist party intimidations when principle
and honor come in question." The question was
put on the adoption of this resolution, and altho.gh
the G'a:ette will probably say to-morrow" it was
adopted. we will wager the best "tile' in town
that it was voted down. and submit it to Colonel
Smith. How could thby do else. A Democrat is
not supposed to be "proud," and the crowd, the
most doleful aseemblage we have seen in a year,
hadn't an idea of being "happy." Mr. E. 8. Wil
kinaon maitre de cirque, came to the center. He con
Kratnlated the oountry on the elfeiency of the regu
lar army and said he had engaged the services of
Cataline to solicit for the Ga:zctc Terms $8 per
annum; gold dust at par. This was intended as a
joke. It was three minutes in length by the alma
nac, and deeper if anything. Col. M. B. Harrison
exhibited Tom Benton's "yaller dorg" and a yoke
of marine oxen, to the intense delight of a
little boy passing along the street, who appre
dated the situation by singing out "' Bully!"
The band at this point, end of Part lst, commenc
ed playin g the "Star spangled banner,' when the
crowd broke fo "Orleans," but on being assured
it was intended to be ironical, and was only in fan
they returned, and the band stopped. Part 2d,
comedy-then commenced. Mr. Notestein of the
Prickly Pear, who has a fine crop of potatoes, that
will be offered to purchasers at reasonable rates
when they grow--announced that be had been a
soldier in the Union army, and would like to say a
word to his old comrades. On being assured none
were present, be sat down. Mr. R. B. Parrott was
next called. We did not bear his remarks, but
were afterwards assured by himself he made the
most practical speech of the evening. 'Speet its
so. Mr. J. Deebeck was introduced as "the short
haired boy of the mountains,better known in Brick
Pomeroy's lpaer as the chief of the Ku Klux Klan"
Tremendous applause for an hour or two. He
i*en spoke; not muoh; being a lawyer he is a man
of "deeds." Col. Johnson called. lie said "I do
not eee why Democrats should rejoice in this mat
ter.' Told an anecdote founded on an incident in
the life of a medium sized, ungodly woman with a
large family of small children, to show them the
Democratic perty would be triumph-nt if it could
only be successful. At this point he assured the
audience "this was not their funeral." It would
have been the best thingi that ever happened Helena,
if it had been, but he did not meation that. On
being informed they were living creatures, the
"mans' dispersed, and the dismal, doleful, kind of
melon-oolio, cheerless wake was ended. The be:
havior of tie audience would have been creditable
in any graveyard,and reflects the highest credit on
a people who have so little funeral experiences as
Helenaltes. The exhaustion of the editor of the
Ga:ette after his great effort, prompts us (ti.r this
oceasion only) to give the meeting that extenldel
notioe it deferves.
