HELENA, May 12.--Yesterday a suit was

of the Northern Pacific to landgranted it
by its charter can be in any instance void
ed by mineral claim and patent, unless
such land.is more valuable for mineral
than for agrictltural purposes. The suit
is entitled: The Northern Pacific Railroad

citizens here being advised that a number
of the officials and directors of the North

among them, would come west within ten
days or two weeks, a meeting was called
to consider what could be done to secure
a better outlet for their products. The
citizens and farmers responded, and
adopted the proposition to tender free
right-of-way and a bonus of $75,000 if the
company would build a line to Wallulla
Junction and agree to carry wheat to'the
Sound for $4 per ton. $10,000 was at
once subscribed as a starter. The people
here are enthusiastic and anxious to secure
further railway facilities.
THE RITER TRAFFICc
FoRT BErTON, May 10.--The Judith
came out of Bismarck, heavily laden with
both through and way freight, with the in
tention of proceeding up the river until
met by the Rosebud or Helena, when
-through freight would be transferred to
hne or the other of these boats for convey
ance to Benton. The Jhdith metwith the
misfortune of blowing out a steam-pipe,
which delayed her below Buford. The
Rosebud reached the Judith at a point
below Buford, .and exchanged cargoes
with her on the 7th instant. The Eclipse,
with a full cargo of through freight,
left Bismarck for Benton on the 7th.
The' Helena completed her loading yester
day, and left Bismarck tllis mtning for

MONTROSE F!lE WINNER.
LorIsvLrt, May 11.-The great Ken
tucky Derby was won to-day by the bay
colt Montrose, son of the Duke of Mon
trose, dam Patti. The time was 2:39SDi,
which compares badly with Ben. Ali's last
year, when that colt lowered the record to
2:36,4. About 20,000 people were on the
ground. There were seven starters out of
19 entries, Jacobin was the favorite in the
betting which w s 15 to 1 against Montrose.
Toward the close it was nip and tuck be
tween Montrose and Jim Gore. Fitzpat
rick had been instructed to win with Jim
Gore if he had to kill the colt, and as-he
laid on the lash the horse was seen to be
limping. Lewis gave Montrose the rein
and he won by two lengths with Jim Gore
second. The distance was a mile and a
half. Montrose is owned by Labould
brothers of Cincinnati and was bred by
as ISITINO BUTTE.
