CmcAon,Sept 28 ^ The expenditure ^^$50,000 000 by two English syndicates for^the control i f an t xtraordinary aggregate^t f industrial enterprises In the United^state* was completed in this city to-day.^The syndicates include in their member^^ship a great cumtx-r of British bankers and^trustee* of large estates in the United^Kingdom. No business was a. quired for^them in the I nited States which has not^paid at least 12-, percent, a year tor the^past five years. Grain elevators, flouring^mills and breweries have been the favorite^Investment. The management of each of^the various enterprises will be placed in^American hoards ot direct'irs. surj-cttothe^control of a b^srrt in London. A repre^^sentative of thesyrdieate here, when asked^to-day if this d^e**n't look like the establish^^ment of a huge British trust, said no Etch^enterprise Is operated separately. ITe^plan is not one of aggression, but of con^^servative, sure investments. Hostile legis^lation, it Is learned, has been cleverly^evaded in a careful manner.
Thedeal embraces a chain of elevators^from the Minnesota and Dakota wheat dis^^trict to Chicago. The syndicate's^flouring mills are at Minneapolis and^the breweries in Chicago and the east.^The purchasing committee, it is under^^stood, left Chicago this evening en route to^the north wes', and intending to go from^there to Omaha and Kansas City, where^further purchases are now being considered.^Among the properties turned over to the^syndicate are a number of breweries in^Chicago.

Billing*.Sept, 28 ^[Special to the In^^dependent ]^To forecast the political^prospects of Yellowstone county is like^every other county In the territory, a task^by no means easy. Vet with all fairness^the democratic party ha* every reason to^expect gains In this county At the last^election Cartel's majority was while it^is generally conceded this year that the^republican majority, if any, will be leas^than 100. The republican party in this^county is composed of men who have more^or leas time at their disposal to devote to tbe^interests of their party, while the democratic^party is made up of the laboring claar, who^must ne*d8 de\ote their time to their daily^labor, thus making tbe democratic party^heavily handicapped. It is safe to say that^there will be no democratic vote for tbe re^^publican candidates on the state ticket and^with the excellent material for county of^^ficer* there is no reason to believe that any^scratching of that portion of ti e ticket will^be done. The republicans, however, are^somewhat divided on the county^ticket, as the nominations were^not all made on tbe merit* of the va^^rious candidates for nomination, but by the^machination of the party leaders.
Thedemocratic party receives a severe^blow at tbe hands of tbe repuolican offi^^cial*, who have bad charge of the registra^^tion, a* well as the county ^ flic rs, to whom^the registration agent* and judge* of elec^^tion have been compelled to look for infor^^mation as to the legal point* of tbe regis^^tration law, the instructions given having^never failed in working to tbe disadvan^^tage of tbe democrats wben possible, with^^out being too apparent. On the whole the^outlook for the democratic ticket Is far^better than at any time since tbe division^of this county from Custer county. Every^Indication in this cc-untv seem to point to a^surprise to the republicans who, though^working night and day, wear the confident^look of victory. Every mean* available is^being used to advance Sate Interests of tbe^democratic cause, both by loy al democrats^as well as candidates for office, who never^lose an opportunity to work for the good^of the party in general, while jpaking an^individual canvas* and with the gratifying^result

The speaking was abandoned, but^after'he fire had been extinguished, which^took about five minutes, the entire audience^returned and clamored for Maginnis, and^he was forced to resume.

MilksCitt, Sept 28..^| Special to the^independent].^Tbe name* certified to tbe^county clerk from the different registry^offices now amount to 1,278. Tbe full vote^in this county is not expected, as there are^so many who could not register. It is all^important to those parties to see that all^the votes registered are polled. It is con^^ceded by individuals of both parties that^Toole will carry tbe county. Between Ma^^ginnis and Carter the race will be close,^but tbe democrats, with good reason, claim^the former will receive a light majority.^Tbe fate of the remainder of tbe state^ticket is doubtful. It will have something^of a republican complexion, due to the fact^that the republicans were more fortunate^In the matter of registration. Geo. R. Mil-^burn, for district judge. will be^given a handsome majority over^the republican nominee. W. B. Burleigh.^To the legislature will be sent a democratic^senator, at least one representative and a^good prospect of sending two to the lower^house.
Thedemocratic county ticket in the^maj.ir part will go through. The fight for^sheriff, treasurer and clerk will be close^and bitter. These three county office*^have caused a split In each party. The^treasurer will probably fall to the republi^^cans, a* the expenditure of money and^work will undoub ed y have its effect,^though even bet* in large fmount* are^made in sporting circles on the candidates^for these positions. Custer county baa^suffered a loss in it* voting strength by tbe^impossibility of registering numbers of^co*boys. This will have its effect on tbe^democratic vote, wbicb is thereny lessened,^but the county can be counted largely dem^ocratic for the officers to be elected next^Tuesday.
