Walters have com menced for a summers work in Cement Gulch. OuR efficient county Treasurer, C. W. Sut ton, and jovial townsmen, Bob Harwood, and David Marks, came in from the springs Monday. SHEEP shearing will be lively in Meagher county this spring, and shearers are in de mand. Ten cents per head is the ruling price for this kind of work. MESSRS. P. H. Maloney and John Kelley have taken a two-thirds interest' in the Win aton claim, at the head of King & Gillette's flume, and work will be commenced at once. FRANK GAUGLER came in from his stock ranch at the forks of the Muscleshell last week to spend the summer working his mines in Cement gulch. A CORRESPONDENT of the Benton Record says we know as much about grasshoppers as he does about running a newspaper, which is evidently intended for a compliment. MR. Louis THOUVENAL, who left this camp last summer to visit his friends in southern France, and look after his interest in valuable property there, returned. to our town last Week. Mr. T. thinks Montana is the best country of them all, and has come to make a permanent home in our midst. MESSRS. Barker, Rice and Mannering are making preparations to resume work in Green Horn gulch again this season. Nego tiations are pending with the ditch company for water. In case they succeed in getting Sit they will put in a bed-rock flume. O'E Of our farmers of Confederate Creek, Mr. P. J. Winston, is erecting a good, sub stantial building, 12x18 for dairy purposes, which when completed, will be the finest structure of the kind in Meagher co. Mr. W. understands his business, and realizes the fact that "what is worth doing, is worth doing well." M. JAMws PERKINs recently sold his one half interest in his farm of 320 acres, situat~ ed upon Rea Creek, to his partner, Thomas Nield, for $600, also his interest in the agri cultural machinery used upon the place at $300. This is a fine farm, all under felce and in a high state of cultivation. WE understand that the Helena Independ eit has consolidated with the Hurdy house on Main street. We are not advised as to whether it will appear in a hyphenated form or not. MESSRs. Lloyd & Ryan turned on the wa ter yesterday to their Boulder Bar claim. They have about 300 inches to start in with, but their head will increase as the weather grows warmer. OUR relidrter at the races, on the 7th, started in on fifty cents and increasing it to six dollars, but on the last turn fell next to the box, and coming out at the close of the day with his capital only doubled. THE soldier Grady, who had so long been in custody, and was released, there being no evidence before the grand Jury to convict him, was upon his return to Camp Ba:ker again ordered to the guard house. It is thought that he will be tried by a military commissioh. Mn. AMD MRs. LINVILLE and Mr. Ala baugh moved over to Thompson's gulch a few days since. Messrs. Alabaugh and Lin ville are interested extensively in summer diggings in that camp. THE recent rain and snow has put that portion of the Carroll road through the bad lands in wretched condition. The down coach was two days and one night traveling forty miles. The last coach, however was on time. MESSRs. James Thompson and J. F. Mc Clintock had an exciting chase after a moun tain lion up Boulder gulch, above this place, a few days ago. This king of the moun tains outwitted his pursuers, and escaped, though it is claimed he carried off some of their lead. Dom Pedro's full name is Pedro Joao Car los Leopoido Salvador Bibiano Xavier de Paula Leocadio Miguel Gabriel Raphael Gonzaga. For the benefit of the public who are always thankful for any facts concern ing royalty, we will state that his relatives and intimate friends call him Gabe for short. OUR energetic road supervisor, L. A. Bfen edict, is on the alert, keeping roads in good condition. For the past few days he has been repairing the blind ditch at the mouth of Montana, to prevent the accumulation of water as has been the case during previous years. HoN. T. E. COLLINS, of our town, mem ber of the Territorial Centennial Commis sion, received an invitation to be present at the opening ceremonies, which were to take place yesterday. Mn. MUnPHY of our town, received a let ter a short time since from an old time mi ner of this place, John Shine, who is now in the Black Hills. He states that he has been prospecting between Custer City and Dead wood all winter, can find colors all over the country, but no gold in paying quantities. He has seen a number of old Montanians there, among whom were John H. Graves and Geo. Macdonald. Macdonald and three other men have bought a claim in Dead wood. Paid'$1,000 for a claim without pros pecting it. Mr. S. intends spending the summer in the Hills. WE TAKE pleasure in referring our readers to the communication of Mr. L. Lewis in another column. This is the first record we have ever sccn of the lifetime of these scab parasites, and is of great value to our wool growers. We hope inquiry and research will continue. Our Montana stock-men are wide awake, and we venture the assertion that no country can outstrip it in progres sion. THE water has commenced to increase, and miners are forsaking their gulch dig gings, and are beginning to prepare for a summer's work upon the bars; however, be fore quiting their gulch claims, it will be well for them to secure their shafts It will save time and expense when fall comes, and they want to commence work on them again, besides there is a law recorded upon the stattte books, which requires all shafts to be securely covered. A lttle precaution may prevent some accident, as well as save the claim holder from the penalty of the law. THE widely known "Little Giant," of the Boulder Ditch Company, will be taken from the store house of the company to-day to Gold Hill, but it is not likely that there will be sufficient water to work, before the 20th of May, or the 1st of June. TIMES are getting a little livelier over at White's Gulch. Work was commenced this week on the bars. C. L. and I. Harrington began piping Monday. John Bristol is mak ing ready, and will turn the water on in a few days. Water for hydraulicing this sum mer is light, owing to the fact that they are compelled to let a sluice head run in the gulch. THE Benton Record enters upon its second volume under, apparently, very favorable auspices, being considerably enlarged, with an increase of reading matter and a liberal showing of advertising patronage. Mr. Buck exhibits true grit and enterprise. He began his editorial career in Montana while a soldier in the United States army, publish ing the Good Templar, of which he was ed itor, proprietor and typo. It was issued monthly, Mr. B. working on it at odd times when not occupied by other duties. On quitting the army, he commenced the pub lication of the Record--first at Ft. Shaw as a semi-monthly, then at Ft. Benton as a weekly-and now comes forth this early in its career enlarged and bearing marked in dications of prosperity, a fact which speaks well for Mr. B., and also for the community in which his lot is cast. The price of sub scription has also been increased to $5 per annum. OUR Diamond folks are beginning to talk of a grand Fourth of July celebration. It has been a number of years since our people celebrated this national holliday, and as this is the Centennial year, we have reason to believe they will enter into the work with unusual interest. It has been so long since Diamond has given itself to any kind of merry making. except the " tipping of the light fantastic," that it has become proverb ial, that they can't do anything but dance. We are of the contrary opinion however, for while our ladies and gentlemen are ac complished devotes of the terpsichorean art, they are capable of making a full hand at ,a i g to which they may set their wills. rye have ino yet learned the particulars, as to what the nature of the celebration wfll be, but are fully persuaded that it will be a suc cess. Our people are large hearted and patri otic, and though they do not feel that their cir cumstances will justify a trip to the Centen nial Exhibition, from their green mountain homes, they will catch the anthems of praise, swelling a nations heart, and join in the chorus. They will, perhaps, roast an ox beside some:of our bubling streamsi and spread a feast beneath the cool shade of the tall quivering aspens and lofty pines, and while the juveniles gather flowers from the sunny slopes, and the lesserlights sport at snow-ball beneath the shadow of the moun tains, the older folks will talk of the great ness of America. TiE RACES at the White Sulphur springs were largely attended. 'Greet interest was manifested and betting was lively. The first race was a match between Sherman's chest nut sorrel horse, and Rader's bay, single dash of five hundred yards-twenty-five dol lars a side. Sherman's horse won the race, coming out fifty open feet ahead.,: About two hundred dollars changed hands among the spectators. The second race was a single dash of five hundred yards-no purse. There were three entries-Leopold's Grey Charlie, Jeff. Moore's bay gelding, and Phil. Miller's Top sy. Pools sold briskly. Gray Charlie was the favorite, and Jeff. Moore's gelding sec ond choice. The horses scored well, and were off the first trial. Topsy won the race with ease. The third race was a single dash of two hundred yards, between Rader's horse, and Brainard's blue horse; the blue winning. The sports of the day were closed by raf. fling for Topsy, the queen of the day. There were-ten chances at $5 each. John Sher wood, the cripled mail carrier, whose Mwis fortune we chronicled last week, won the mare. A match was made between Gray Charlie and Topsy, for a single dash ot tive hundred yards. 'The race is for fifty dollars a side, to come off May 28. Other races will be made, and the lovers of the.turf anticipate a lively time upon that occtsion.
