WE saw a letter a few days sinie from W. '1. Martlen, Secretary of the Western Star Mining Company, from which we wouldi conclude that it is the intention of the coin pany to commence work this fall. This Company, like many other Eastern compan ies that have operated in Montana, have had much that is embarrassing to contend against in the way of incompetent mann ,ers, law suits. etc. But the property is clear of litigation now. and there is nothing to prevent the company's going to work in earnest, and developing their property. 'There has been a large amount of money expended, but nothing as yet is known of the actual value of their mines. All the as sertions regarding its immense value are merely speculatlon. That there ate a num ber of rich leads in this district there is no possible doubt, and many are sanguine as to the richness of those belonging to this com pany. If they aire worth anything they are worth millions. The sum of $1,500 or $2,000 judiciously expended by the company would put their mill in running order; there are 250 or 300 tons of ore on the dump, which would readily pay this amount and the cost of crushing, and the company can arrive at some idea bf the value of their leads without incurring any risk to speak of. The nTll is a good one, and if it was put in motion It would be good property whether the comy pany worked'tleir own leads or not. There are a number' of good leads in the vicihity, some of which are being slowly dev'eloi ed, and let the mill once start, and give assie Sance' that the mniers could get their ore crushed, there would be plenty for it to dco on custom rock. and it would prove highly .emunerative to the company. Living and labor are comparatively, cheap, and experit *" enced laborers are more easily obtained that " heretofore. A $10.000 surveying contract onatle us- I tleshell- has just, been let to CoL DeLitcyfind G. A. Kellogg. This valley is perh.aps, the most magnificent region in the West now open for settlement, yet we do not claim for it any precedence over. many others alolvg: the western slope of the Rocky Mountains. It:is of vast extent-,-tully 70 miles plob:.andC frcw- 10 to 90 wide--and Is famed for belng the best winter range for stock in Motntnna. There are now a number of herds -in this v.alley, but it can scarcely be. said to have ,eonmened to be settled. Up to tis, time there is not a family on the valley. and but .ooe "r two ranches that hmve been iled. The soil is rich and productive, au) the bench lands are thickly covered. with a luxuriant growth of bunch grass.. The valley-is hedg- ed in on the north and west by a lofty chain ,of timbered mountuins, trom which i.tnum erable streams come forth and ,wend their :way through the valley, whilP east apQ,south as far as the eye can reach stretches an im m.ense rolling prairie. When the present' surveying contract is finished, all the chool& est .portion of the valley will be open fiar location. We know of no other section that contains so great a number ot choice randche as this. The water from the main stream anl tributaries can with but little labor be turned over the land, and the mountains art" near at-hand and afford toel and ,fencing t1 abundance. Coal is also found here at, sev cral points, and the mountains at the west end of the valley are rich with copper ore, which will be worked at in lenrly day. 'the demamid for farm produce at the new Posts on the Yellowstone will cituse this fertile region to settle up with farmers. In addi tion to the light fall of snow in'wtiter i it is near the navigable waters of the Missouri. and has a good natural outlet to 1llsmarik, which will ever eausee it t be 'held first among the valleys of M htnnn fori stock.
