anything they have presented for some gi

introduce some marvelous business in
this act, including back-flips, somersaults,
etc., the act concluding with a very funny I fr
burlesque and trapeze act. The other I
new people are Misses Ida Chester and pE
Ada lIas~ings, two ladi,.s who have got pi
some of the latest songs of the day and w
who sing them in a style that would be at
hard to beat. Besides the above all the at

THE VALARIA LIBRARY.
Again The Tribune calls Attention to this
An institution which reflects honor on
its promoters, and is a lasting monument
to their generosity, is the new public
library building recently completed.
When it is opened to the public, in about
I two weeks, Great Falls can boast that no
other city of the same size west of the
r Mississippi has a building used exclu
Ssively for that purpose.
r It is true there are public ltiraries in a
number of western cities, but so far as
we can learn, they are in rented quarters.
Therefore Great Falls lays claim to the
honor of being the only city in Montana
that can glory in a building dedicated to
the reading public. To Mrs. Paris Gib
son belongs the honot of giving the lI
brary idea a good start, for that lady in
duced the Townsite company to donate
the lot at the corner of Second avenue
north and Third street, on which the
library building now stands. It is known
as the Valeria library, so named in her

Last Sunday it became noised about
that the Baeton group of mines on Snow
creek owned by the Montana Gold, 511
har Platinum and Tellurium companj,
had been jumped by Jerry Colilt .et
on the previous night. Finding Dave
Barker, we ascertaIned that the report
was true, and on questioelag him in re.
gard to his opinlon of the matter he re
marked: "It is only a blultea ae pert
of Collins. We shall go ahead the same
as if nothing happeea."
It seems tat prior to the otganlastlon
of the new compsey Couine had been for
yearn putting up his proportioeate assar
of the repreeenling work on this group
and considering himself a one-twel
owner, but when the property was cor.
veyed to the new company by his part
ners, Mr. Collins was left out, as his
rights in the group were not duly re
corded. Just what will be the result of
this Jumping move ment we are unable to
The "Heuton Group" (the name by
which the lead claims located on Snow
creek, a tributary of Carpenter creek,
which runs into Beltcreek just below the
town of Nelhart, are designatedjare ac
knowledged to be the rbchest undeveloped
mines in Montana. They make a wond4r
tul surfce Alhowing and stock in the
company which controls them is con
sidered very valuable. The mines are
said to be worth millions of dollars.
The leads, the Big Snowy, Blue Cloud,
Flora, Carre and Green d; Weetherwax,
(now known as the Puck), were discov.
ered by Mr. Daniel Uutru of this city in
June 1882, now nearly nine years ago.
Mt. Dutro, who is an experienced and
lucay prospector, proposed in the early
spring of 1889 that if a party of Fort Bes
ton men would join him in the expenses
he would go to the Nelhart district on a
prospecting tour Messrs. John H. Green,
J. D. Wea'herwax, E. I. Chlion, Frank
Uoomba, Jerry Collins and Jae. E. Stev
ens-the latter two gentlemen repre
senting one interest-joined with him,
agreeing to put up money, Mr. Dutro to
do the prospecting, the Interests to be di
vided into slx equal parts, Mr. Dutro to
have one-sixth. Mr. Dutro was gone
about three months. Representative
work has been done ever since. Messrs.
Green and Clingan sold out to the late
Dr. W. E. Turner, whose widow. Mrs.
Annie E. Turner, now owns a large Inter
est in the new company, after sellIng
her holding for part cish and part stock.
Mr. Stevens sold his laterest-one.twelfth
-two his partner, Jerry Collins. Mr.
Dutro, we believe, sold his interest short
ly after the discovery to J. C. E. Barker,
who also bought Frank Coomb's interest
for cash and stock, as he did Mrs. Tur
ner's. Mr. Westherwax also sold his in
terest previous to his death.
It appears, as stated by the Herald, that
Mr. Collins' interest was "lost in the shuf
fle" when the new company was rgan
ized. After buyinor J. E. Stevens' half
interest Mr. Col lin was owner of a full
one-slrth interest, which was not recog
nized by the new company owing to some
oversight in recording the transfer.
It appears that it has been discovered
that there was some oversight or irregu
larity in ohe matter of the original loca
tion. Wo believe it Is blaimed the min
ing laws were not observed in staking,
describing and recording. However that
na to.* whole group of mines have
r.oiped and reloented, by whoa, we
. been ablc to leat i 1 Whether
Mr. (Utll,,'n' name nppiura or he is inter
I dc o ntkouw.
There is one thing certain, however,
,.sere will have to be a compromise, else
the legal contest over these wonderful
mines will be a long, bitterand expensive
one, which will probably tie them up and
prevent development and the profitable
working of them. This should le avoid
en tf possible.-River Press.
The foregoing history of-the "Benton
Group" is in the main correct. Jerry
Collins and J. E. Stevens jointly owned
a one sixth interest and the former had a
document setting forth that fact duly
recorded in the recorder's office of Aleagh
er county several years ago. After 1883
Mr. Stevens failed to pay his proportion
of the representation work and after two
or three Mr. Collins took the usual course
of "advertising him out," thus becom
ing the owner of a one-slath interest.
This interest for some unknown reason
Mr. J. C. E. Barker, who is the promoter
of the company with a long winded name,
saw fit to appropriate to himself, and if
the properties are now relocated he is
simply getting a dose of his own kind of
medicine. It is only necessary to add
further that Jetiry tCollins Is not one of
the relocators of the claims in question

It is now known beyond a doubt that

higheat tribute that we can pay to this
firm Is necessarily poor and small when
we consider what the country and the set
tlers of the country owe to them. Their
whole business course in the northwest
has been marked by almost prodigal gen
erot ity and kindness to those who have
done business with them. To the strug

they have never refused to extend a help

country has been enabled to tide over his

the thousands of instances in which they
