GAGE ^ CO., No.: 25 Upper Main St WILLBUILD A ROAD. TheAnaconda Company to Construct^a Railroad of Its Own From the^Mines to the Smelter. BETTERSERVICE NEEDED. AnInference That the Rocky Fork^and Anaconda People are Work^^ing in Harmony, so That the^Latter May Have Fuel. Hii if. Jan. 14.^[Special to the Inde^^pendent. ]^A sensation waa produced on^thestreftn to-day when It heraine known^that the Anaconda company had ordered a^survey from their mines In liutte to tnelr^smelter in Anaconda, and that they Intend^to speedily construct a railway line of^their own oetween these points. The cauae^of this action is the scantiness of ore and^coal supplies furnished at the great smel^^ter. In order to keep that great com ern in^operation the Montana l uton company has^to deliver at Anaconda two hundred cars^of ore, coal and wood every twenty four^hours. This is a great undertaking for^any one railroad, and the result Is that the^smelter has had no supplies ahead.^The recent strike of the Montana^I'nion engineers forced an immediate^shutdown of the smelter at an enormous^expense. During the present winter the^ore has gotten so low In the concentrator^bins that a hundred shovt-krs have at times^been employed to get In aud shovel ore in^order to keep the tuachluery in operation.^Three times the smelter has been tin the^very verge of a shut down These causes^have determined the company to construct^Its own line to Anaconda. The road will^go out from Hutte to Mlver Bow, pass^through the Mlver liow canyon to Anacon^^da and make a cut oft* by way of Oregson's^Springs, thus avoiding the heavy grade^from Stuart up to Anaconda. Marcus^Daly, superintendent of the Anacomla^company, got back from the east Saturday,^and his first proceeding was to dlsmi** a^Union Taciftc surve^ing party which was^running some switch lines for the com^^pany at Anaconda. This plan of the^Anaconda company is very significant, as^it almost certainl) indicates that the com^^pany has signed an agreement with the^st (Tt tary of the syrdicate which will keep^the mammoth smelter in constant oprra-^tiou for a term of years. The building of^)!.^^ load, togriln r with the rolling sUx k^expenses, will cost around million of dol^^lars. From the movements of Gov. Ilsuser^it it* inferred U at the Anaconda people arc^associated with him iu the building of the^Koeky Kork road from Hillings to the^mighty coal fields southward. On thewiii-^jiktmn of the Kockv Fork road a cut ott^line will probably be constructed from^Gallatin to Ifutte, via liouider, where it^will connect with tbe Helms, Uoulder Val^^ley A Jiutu* road, already graded to with^^in a few miles ot this oity. The Anaconda^would thus have a direct connection wiUi^tbe Kocky Fork coal fields, and thus never^be in danger of again running short on^coal. EGANHAY DIE. TugWtlaon's Victim In a Vary Bad Condition at^Fort Banton. FortHknton. .Ian 14. ^(Special to the^Independent. |^John Kagan, the man so^fearlull) butchered by Tug Wilson at Uig^Sandy station, was brought to llwiton by^Saturday's Manitoba train and placed In^St. Clair hospital. Drs. Adams and Atkin^^son say his condition is ci itical. He is not^allowed to talk owing to the stab in the^windpipe. 1'neumonia has set in. Under^ttherift* Healey touud Wilson not far from^the scene of his crime, having apparently^made no * ffort to escape. The prisoi ^ r is^now in Jail here. He Is a powerful young^man, 2W years old, six feet high and muscu^^lar, and could have easily worsted abetter^man than Kagan with his fists. From the^present outlook the attack on Kagan was a^cold-blooded attempt at murder. The httar^lug in Wilson's case was set for to-day,but^will probably be postponed until Kagan's^fate is known. After Wilson's capture he^was taken in Kagan's presence, who fully^Idem:tj^ d him as the man who stabbed him. NORTH MONTANA SHEEP CO. Otncartoftha Oompany Elactad How tha Butl-^nats Paid I ast Yaar.

GONETO CANADA. ThaBuslnaas of Ohas P Tromton. a Craat^Falls Marchant. Attachad GkjeatFalln, Jan. 14 ^ (Special to the^independent | Considerable surprise was^felt lu huaiuoas circles to day when it be^^came known that Chas. P. Thomson's^store was In the hands of Sheriff Downing.^He had levied an attachment on the slock^for $12,324 at the suit of 1. U. Baker A Co.,^of Fort Kenton, who bought goods for^Thomson from eastern houses and made^themselves responslbles. It Is probable^that the stork wilt be worth the claim, but^nothing definite can be said until tbe stock-^taklag is completed. Tbe other debts are^light. Thomson left town about leu days^ago, say lug be was going to Helena. He^took with him about $S00 he had in bank^here, and some he had lately^received In payment of accounts^due him. He was not heard from until the^other day, when lie sent a telegram from^Canada, asking to have his mail forwarded.^Thomson had been In the dry goods busi^^ness here for about three years and seemed^to be dolug a good business. The failure^was due to mismanagement, and not to any^unsoundness in trade here. Sympathy Is^expressed tor Thomson, who tied evidently^because of worry aud depression, rather^than dishonesty.

It la^a one snled affair politically, as then* are^but five democrats in the council and five^in the house. The council is composed of^twelve members and the hnu^e of twenty^four, so it can be seen readily that demo^crata will not have much to do with mak^lng laws during the present session of the^legislature. The offices within the gift til^the legislature are few, but for each office^there were numerous applicants. They^came north, south, east aud west, and be^sieged the elect on all sides for office. Che^council held Its caucus Sunday night and^named its officers, a list of whom was made publicby the Inum'kni^knt yesterday.^There was not *t^ many applications in the^upper house, and as a general tiling, as far^as can be ascertained, tin* appointees give^politicians greater satisfaction t ban those^of the lower house. Thehouse caucus, which was held at the^Cosmopolitan, lasted from II o'clock to 2^o'clock yesterday, and kept a great many^on tbe anxious sest, the most numerous n*^whom were hoy s who wanted p iges'^places.

Promptly at noon the body^was called to order by Secretary Webb,^who called the districts or counties in or^^der, ami the members elect presented their^credential*. All were on hand except one^or two members who had left the important^document with their baggage and were^therefore obliged Ui make a quick trip to^their hotels. After all were ready the mem^^bers formed a circle around the president's^desk and the oath of office was duly ad^^ministered to them by Chief Justice M^*^Council, they also signing type-wr tteo^copies of the oath. Councilman Thompson,^of Deer Lodge, was made temporary secre^^tary, and the election of officers was the^next business ou band Dr.C.

Messrs.Hrowne and Hoffman were ap^^pointed to escort President Cole to Hit*^chair, which they did. Dr. Cole said be^highly appreciated the honor conferred^upon iiiin and would endeavor to till the^position fairly and creditably, trusting to^receive Ihe assistance aud encouragement^ot every member.

When^Joe Davig uominated him he said he sup^^posed there would be another nomination,^to wioci, Cot 1'emlKTton, who was stand^^ing near by. inquired: ^What's the rea^^son you can't have two chaplains, one for^the d*y shift and the other for tbe night^shift^^ The suggest ton wasn't received^with favor, and Rev. 0. H. Allen, Jr.,being^nominated, he a as elected. Tbecolored contingent which carried^torches, supplied the majority of yells dur^^ing the campaign and expected to get their^hooks into the flt nil pota, were relegated Io^tha' obeettrlt] provided for tbe man and^brother by the g. o. p. Theindications are that Dr. C. K Cole^will preside with dignity, fairness and Im^^partiality over the proceedings of tbe coun^^cil.
