An owl was captured night before last

Mr. and Mrs. Word, Mrs. George W.
Taylor, L. G. Phelps and C. M. Webster

terday. Mr. Word is very deeply inter
ested in the prosperity of Great Falls.
He has great faith in the city's future
Fred L. Stephens, of Stephens, Lyall &
Co., of Barker, was in the city yesterday.
In confirmation of other favorable re
ports faom the great mining districts of
the Belt Mountains, Mr. Stephens said
that many people are arriving in Barker,
and new strikes are of daily occurrence.
Al. Hockett made a splendid strike about
two weeks ago. Al. was very jubilant,
and invited his numerous friends to his
home, where they were well entertained.
He struck a lead carbonate which runs
$38.80 to the ton. Mr. Hockett is erect
ing a shaft house and putting men at
work. Mr. Stephens stated that all per
sons in the mountains are anxiously wait
ing for the railroad. When the road is
built low grade ores may be shipped ad
vantageously. At the Wyandott Boy's
mine there are 150 sacks of yellow car
bonate averaging $100. Mr. Stephens
has had considerable experience in min
ing in Washington territory and Idaho.
He says the Belt mountains contain in
calculable wealth, and the building of
the Neihart branch will commence an
era of great prosperity in the mining dis
tricts of Barker and Neihart. The gen
tleman is of the opinion that sufficient
ore can be taken from the mines in the
vicinity of Barker to supply the great
smelter near this city. Notwithstanding
the fact that the advantages of transport
ing ore over the railroad cannot be had
this winter, an immense amount of ore
will be freighted by teams to the Great
Falls smelter. Mr. Stephens said he un
derstood the famous Pride of the West
mine has been stocked for $200,000. In
his opinion the mine is worth $1,000,000.
It is owned by Pete May, Louis Goslin,
Dick Oatey and J. T. Armington.
SR. H. Beckwith, No. 10 North Main
street, Helena, is one of the leading pho
tottaphic artists in the West.
H. D. Evans of Smith River, is in town
this evening. He says everybody on
Deep Creek will vote for Rolfe and that
Dyas is very unpopular in that section.
The republican candidates are request
ed to meet the central committee at the
probate judge's office, at 10 a. m. today
promptly. Business of importance is to
be transacted. Let every candidate be on
Mr. J. Barnes, proprietor of the U. S.
hotel at Cascade, is in town. Mr. Barnes
was nipped by the democrats at
their meeting there a few weeks ago. On
the strength of their promiseshe laid in
a lot of oysters and perishable goods, but
only seven men were at the meeting from
abroad audMr. Barnes is out and injur
A team belonging to Bach, Cory & Co.
attached4o a delivery wagon ran away
yesterday morning. By taking a circuit
ous route through the city, the runaway
attracted much attention. Numerous
efforts were made to stop the horses near
Central avenue, but they were estopped
however, a short distance from the city.
Nothing was damaged.
The Great Falls Tribune continues its
false stories. The report of the Gorham
meeting is a fabrication. Although the
meeting was held at midday, the room
was full, 50 men being present. Among
those present were: Robert Chestnut,
Wm. Allen, R. T. Gorham, J. Barnes, G.
A. Colby, Homer lHeinas, Dr. Jones, Scott
Morrison, Mr. Miurtag, J. M. Erskine, P.
Lumax, J. A. Harris, M. Jones and J.
Brown, which is slightly above the num
her mentioned by the Great Falls Tooter.
We will not name others. The closest at
tention was paid to the speakers and at
the close democrats and republicans con
gratulated them and expressed their re
grets that the arrival of the train caused
the addresses to be shortened. Now
neighbor why don'tyou tell the truth and
take a tumble to yourself?
The Meeting To-Night.
Our citizens will not fail to be present
at the big republican home talk, to be
held in the Park hotel dining-room this I
evening. Judges Wade and Burleigh
will speak. There will be no buncombe,
no bluster, no billingsgate. The issues
of the hour will be presented in a digni.
fled, intelligent manner for the considera
tion of intelligent voters. It will be a
feast of reason and a flow of soul that
will be peculiarly refreshing after the
Wordy wind-work of Sam,the will-o'-the
wisp. 0 yes, it will be good to be there.
The Base Slanderers.
The Tooter editor got a terrible raking
over last night by C. C. Ray who stopped
on his way to Benton to pay his respects
to the Tooter editor.
Mr. Ray.is well known in Cascade coun -
tyand his reputation will overcast the
fellow that runs the Tooter any day. The
malicious attacks of the Tribune will do
more to injure it and the democratic party
than any other cause. Keep slinging
The Club Meeting.
The republican club at its meeting
last night resolved to go in a body to
the train to meet the distinguished
visitors from abroad.
The course of tile Tooter in its mali
cious and unfounded attackon C. C. Ray
was denounced in scathing terms, and it
was voted to ask that gentleman to ad
dress the people of Great Falls on Friday
evening in company with local speakers.
