Col. A. C. I. oLin. has beenC r
moved from the positoion hai t'. s. uar
shal ol Montana. and Edward lKre.dlerr
of Miles City, has been apptr,lt-l in
his stead. This change is duilie to the
arsaistent elfirts which have been
made for some tune to unseat pIoekin
of which elforts our late Governor
Crosby was the chief engineer. The
new appointee is a proiessional oticre
holder. He was once a rclerk in the
interior dtearutent from which he
was given the registery of the Miles
City land office, which held till last
autumn. That Col. Botkin has been
deposed will be a cause of regret
throughout the territory where his cul- r
Lure and talents have long been recog
nised, and his olicial ability unques
ioned until by a manly independence
he got the Crosby pack on his trail.
