On motion, the following preamble and resolutions were unanimously adopted : 1VI.REIaAS, It appears from a certain movrntInt or:gilnting in Deadwood City. and vicinity in Dakota Territory, that an ef fort is being malde to organize a new Terri tory to be called " Lincoln'--therein em bracing that portion of Montana Territory lying east of the Big Bforn and south of the Yellowstone. Therefore be it Reolved. by the ci I ens ot Custer'county, i4 Mass Meeting here assembled: First. That such action would be detri ental to to te interests of every citizen of ctister county, and the easterly portion of Montana T,'rrntory, in so much that that portion of Custer county is identified and di rectly c.nnected with Montana by mutual ;riterests. Second. That in consideration of the fact that between the valley ot the Yellowstone and the Black hills there is an extensive desert (it had lands and mountains, 'making a coun c ion between the two points very' ilconveemient and impracticable, whilst a nat ural:thorughlare connects us with the cen tral portions of Montana, by way of the Yellowstone and Muscleshell valleys; which valleys are being rapidly settled by indus tr:ous people seeking homes, who are al r.aiy receiving tne benefits of a tri-weekly nail s( rvice between Miles City and Boze nr:m, G:tlla is county, Montana.

LONDOx, January 17.-The Times' special, Irm Guirgevo says the mortality among. the'Turkish prisoners at Fratishti is becom iiiga terror to travelers between Bucharest and the Danube: Even if there is nothing worse there than. the ordinary typhus the tile mortality is evidenuced by numerous graves surrounding the prisoners' camp jtstifies the apprehension of travelers. I saw Russian soldiers digging huge graves and near them were fifty Turkish corpses lying in a confused heap where they had been emptied from the dead carts. Their ragged, half clad forms, and Irost bites vial hie on their naked limbs, gave evidence of the hardships they had sufl~red on their march from Nikopolis. LoNDON. January 18.- Russian official dispatch dated Kezanlik, January 16 says that a reconnoitering party of dragoons .has brought information that Suleihnan Pasha is at Phillipopolis, and has given orders to bhrn everything. Later-Bazardirk' and Priillhfhpolis' are reported burned. Intelligene from the Danube says that the flow of ice continues, and communica t'on is most difficult. LONDON, January 16.-The Cologne Ga zette says: The Russians are before Phil lipopoli. and : battle is imminent; that the foreign consula- representatives bad :de 1ianIle 1 a sus)ersion, of arms for 2 .hones to send away non-combatanus. A dispatch says that Suleiman Pasha, af ter fighting his way from Tatar Bazardjik to Phillipopolis, found the Russians there in great torce, fought a desperate battle Tues dlay and succeeded in clearing the road to Adrianople, and continued his retreat hither CHICAGO, January 17.-The Times' Lon don special says: A belief is prevalent in Vienna that Russia is purposely delaying negotiations until Turkey is reduced to. a condition of utter helplessness. One ofi the condititions of peace, according, to Parisian authority, is the opening or the Black'Sea to Russia exclusively. From Constantino ple the statement is telegraphed that Aus tria and England have intformed the Porte and Russia that they will not recognize any arrangement made in c@ntravention of the treaty of Paris without the participation of -he guaranteeing., powers. At present the most alarming views on the situation come from French journals, which assert that Germany has agreed to sustain Russia in ig noring any interests which clash with those of the Muscovite. CHICAGO, J.anuary 17.-The Tribune's London special says: The garrison of Wid din, on the Danube, and of Erzeroum, in Asia Minor, have asked for terms of surren der and will capitulate in a few days. TERRITORIAL IEWS. From the New North-West. A$ the silver mines of Montana are now consuming immense quantities of salt, why does not some one go and discover a salt mine and make an immense fortune and go to Europe and put on a little style? Salt is generally found in any country where coal and iron abound and can without doubt be found in Montana. There is also money in Montana coal and now tlhat the embargo haIs been laid upon wood, why. not have inore of our coal mines opened and devel oped ? From the Independdent. A? petition, signed by 170 residents of Miles City to the Postmaster General, pray ing that a daily mail route be established between that point and Bismarck, repre sents that a saving of 200 miles in distance will be made by, that change. The route heretofore has been by way 'f Buford. From the Herald. The meeting on the 18th inst. of the Hele na Board of Trade was more largely attend ed than at any time sinice its organization, all the Directors being present except;Tour. The proceedings were unusually interesting, and a large correspondence was read from Chambers of Commerce and Boards of T'rade from Chicago, San Francisco, Pitts burgh, St. Paul, and from the Norfolk and P6rtsmouth Cotton Exchange and others. Several niew.members were elected, a com wuittee of supervisors appointed to prospect hand build the Butte road when sufdient funds were raised for the purpose and to so ,cit and receive subscriptions, etc., etc. Several committees were appointed on dif ferent matters. all looking to the generalin terest of the town and Territory. Memonrials to Congress, representing the wide-spread dissatisfatction of the people on the wood and lumber taxes were received, with signuatures from every citizen of Ra dersburgand Bozeman. As soon as other memoritls from the other towns and camps are received, there will be a string ot"remon strants' names that will have to be meas ured by the yard so as to get at the voice of the people's expression of disaprobationrat the unj'ust and onerous tax. When the principal memorials from Butte, Deer Lodge, Misoula, Virgini:a City, Blackoot, Benton, Diamond City, Jeffersou and Clan ey, are received, they. will be'iorwarded to our Delegate in Congress. From the Missoulimn. A letter received" from James Kennedy announces his safe arrilval 'at^Junction, on Salnmom river, Idaho. He has his band of cattle at that phlce, and proposes tostay there during tile winter. AMONG THE DEAD FAILITJr Of the past,how manny bogus nostrums may be numlbered !
