'. to Heavy Reieptsu the Pole
of Beft at Chicago, Drops a S Notch or Two. Shipments Will Be Held Back TUn til the Surplus Is Out of the Way. New Montana toeak Is Solllng-Receipts From Abtrays--ome Cattle Lead the Procasslos. Owfng to the heavy receipts, the Chicago market, which has kept well up, for several months, has gone to pieces. The drop coimmenced about a week ago and has oo.t tinued ever sines. Last Thursday the re cripte4ere 19,000 head, followed by 18,000 on Friday. Oh Thursday there were in the pens before the day's business began 12,000, rtd the dumping of 18,000 on top of these sent prices down. Fortunately for Mon t:na shippers their stock this year is the best in the market and the reduction was only 25 cents per hundred.. The poor oat tile caught it most severely. But while the reduction in the price of Montana cattle was less than in other grades. the market is now so overstocked that sales are hard to make. Local cattlemen who talked about the matter yesterday say that there will be a big falling of in shipments from Mon tana points during the next week or so. A number of heavy growers who had in tended to ship in the next week or so, will hold their cattle and allow the market to right itself. It is thought that the surplus will be used up in ten days or so, and then the Montana growers will resume ship ments. Since Friday the reoeipts at Chi cago have dropped of, and it is thought the worst is almost over. The following sales will show the range of the market last Friday. It has remained at about the same figures since: Murphy C. Co...... 40 Mont . ........ $1.5 eurvhr Cr Co ......12,o Mot ............... '.75 Murphy C. C....... 130 cows ............ 2.40 Murphy C.

It is almost impossible to tell the number of cattle Montana has marketed this year, but there is a record in the office of the seoretary of the hoard of stock commission ers which gives some idea of the extent of the business. From July 17, when ship ments commenced, up to September 17, Secretary Preaitt had received from buy ers, in Chicago somewhere in the neighborho od of $60,000 as the proceeds of the sale of es trays. The greater part of this has already been sent to theowners of the estrays, and in many cases this was the first instruction they had that any of their seattle were in the market. This part of the dutiesof the board of stock commissioners is one of the most interesting, as well as the most important of its many responsibilities. When the shipment of cattle begins, the work of the inspector commences in earn est. At all the prominent shipping points, such as Benton, Billings and Livingston, these men are stationed, and they inspect the cattle as they are loaded on the cars. To the unitiated at may be well to explain that by inspection is meant the keeping of a record of any stray cattle that may get into a shipment. For instance: John Smith is shipping ten oars of cattle. His brand is A. B. Among these ten ears the inspectors find twenty head branded B. C. The cattle bearing this latter brand belong to Wm. Jones. The inspector makes anote of these twenty head and notifies the inspector at Chicago that in John Smith's shipment are twenty cattle, branded B. C. belonging to Wi. Jones. At St, Paul, where the cattle are unloaded and fed, there is another inspection, this time by William Lander, also in the em ploy of the Montana board. He is consid ered one of the best inspectors in the ser vice, and mounted on a pony he rides through a lot of cattle noting the estravs. He is exceedingly well posted on brands and can locate a stray almost by intuition, Arriving at Chicago the fiaal inspection is made. W. D. Smith, one of the best men in the employ of the stock commissioners, is the head inspector for this state. He works with an inspector from Wyoming and the two have one assistant during the busiest times. The animals missed at the previous two inspections are rounded up at Chicago and then the business completed. The estrays are always sold with the ship msnt on which they are found and the bvyer is notified to send the money for all eattle bearing a different brand from that of the shipper to the secretary of the board of stock commissioners. This is done and accompanying each draft is a description of the brand of the animal or animals for which the remittance is made. Secretary Preuitt or his assistant go immediately to the book containing the recorded brands, ind the name of the owner and send the cheek to him. And right here is where the muan who has paid two dollars to have his brand recorded has the advantage over the on. who has not. The stock commissioners know only owners' brands from the fact that they are recorded. All the big cattle companies recognize the fact, so they do rut care, no matter who ships their cattle. ] ut the smail grower, who neglects to re cora his brand, hisa no way of getting the money from the sale of one of his estrays. 01 course, it does not often happen that rstra) ruoney is noclaimed, but there are ca.es. and this goes to the state. To an estsider it would seem to be very poor e':onomy for any man who uses a brand to segilect to have it recorded, when it only costa, altogether, two dollars, and may save him hundreds in a few years. When it is remembered that so far $60, 000 has been received from the sale of estrays and that it will probably amount to $100,000 before the shipping season closes in October, it will be seen that the inspec tors at Chicago and Secretary Freuitt and his assistant have plenty to do. The latter keep full records of the business and at any time can answer an inquiry concerning it. It may he thought strange that so many cattle are shipped by others than the own ers. Sometimes it done by mutual agree ment, as in rounding up it may be more convenient to send thirty or forty head to market with some one else's beef than to drive them to the owner's shipping point. T'hen in driving from the round-up to the railroad, onutside cattle join tire herd, are not noticed, and are taken along. As a rule before the end of the season matters about even themselves up, and if the Broad Sater-McNamara outfit send twenty head of Murphy's cattle to Chicago, the latter or some one else will send the same number for the first named firm. 'The banner stray of the year was ono owned by Thoe, Cruse, for which Secretary I'recitt has sent him a check for p$7.70. This was the net proceeds. Another stray which beat them all for weight, going 1,8t0 pounds, was not in such good shape as that of Mr. Cruse, and did not bring so much.

Fisusa, A tr D r e ond b coto r e he Greet Northernm' A Relan of Terror WhiMc theh iri i Sup on pressed-A secret Booity for Preery go Itn the Peace to the Fature. e John B. King, formerly a resident of Misa iat souln, but now living at Kootenai, Idaho, orwas a visitor in Helena yesterday. He predicts that for the next twelve or fifteen to months Kootenai will be the liveliest town a in the northwest, with a death rate equal to ia city of 1.000. As that town has only Is about 1,000 inhabitants this statement was .received with some incredulity. After Mr. g' King had explained the situation be was re be garded as being probably very olose to the a mark. Kootenai is the outfitting point for Barns & Chapman, contractors on the Great p Northern extension, and for ten davs no to tt the 22d of September they were receiving a daily average of ten carloads of freight. P. )f Welqh & Co., contractors for another seo Stion of the road, also make Kootenai their 11 headquarters. As a result, a place which e was until a month or so ago one of the most lonely, barren r and desolate stationsin Idaho is to-day a booming frontier town, made up in large a part of thieves, thugs, fallen women, tin t horn gamblers and the rif raff of the northwest. To support these people, there are the thousands of laborers employed by the contractors. For a little while the bet ter element endeavoren to keep the control of the town intheir own hands, but were compelled to yield to sheer force of nurnm ber. Matters cameto such a pass about three weeks ago, and bold highway robber ies were of such frequent occurrence, that Smen who had lived on the frontier for years and never carried a gun were compelled to as arm themselves and be ready for the round- in ers in day as well as after night. People a were held up in broad daylight and their sib valuables taken; and so little did the m rounders fear punishment that the least resistance was followed by a bullet or a knife thrust. The laborers employed on the extension were the greatest sufferers. Mr. King says there are from 3,000 to 5,000 of these men rin working in the vicinity of Kootenai, and when they come to town if it is not possible to run them against a "skin" game and rob Ste them in that way some of the gang would keep on their trail until the opportunity offered to slug the unfortunates and then rob them. So far was this carried that if a laborer known to have money managed to no get on a train without being robbed he th would be followed and held up elsewhere. O A half dozen hardy gurdy houses are Ln running, while all the well-known skin stb games are kept going day and night. In pr one day there were seven robberies, aggre gating $1,t00, two fatal shooting affrays and a numberr of minor infractions of the peace. Two coroners' inquests, with the the stereotyped verdict, "Came to his death at pri the hands of persons unknown." were the only attempts made to fasten the crimes on the guilty parties. Finally Sheriff McClure, of bathdrum. was sent for. He seems to be pretty well known to the Kootenai gang, because a number of the hardest characters left the town when they heard he was coming. He remained a few days, and cleared the at mosphere considerably, but since his de parture the old gang is congregating again, and when Mr. King left the sure-than games and the rounders were nearly as hot numerous as they were befre before clur's visit. But the breathing spell from thel reign of terror was taken advantage of. and cor the reputable men now have a secret society E which is very popular among the law abid ing eitizens of frontier towns. If the tough element becomes too numerous and too aggressive there will be work for the under taker and not for the sheriff. New pictures at The Bee bive.
