The insarance was very light, as the locality was considered a safe one. g. The Minneapolis exposition was open ed Monday and the machinery was put In motion by Mrs. Grover Cleveland pressing a telegraph key at Upper Sar anac lake in New York state. Every thing points to a complete success for the exposition. The commission appointed by- the Sec retary of the Interior to visit the differ ent Indian reservations has received ifts Instructfdns.r Jn geiif-jal, the -mission will be to find ways and' means to de crease the Indian res&rvatibns where it is clearly seen that they are laTger. than necessury. On our second page will be foudd the portraits of the anarchists who were recently condemned to death.in Chicago for murdering or inciting others to the murder of the policemen, killed on tho memorable 4tli of May. No verdict has ever been rendered that gave morn gene ral satisfaction tliau the one which con demned these men to death. Tht-ii utterances consisted of the lankext kind of treason and all"good -men will liiok forward eagerly to the''day when they shall expiate their, crimes on the gal lows. V- Tho hopes of our war-like citizens will be blasted by the news that there is now no chance of a war with Mexico. The Mexicans claim that editor Cutting,cir culated a libel against Mexicau citizens on Mexican soil auditor this was arrest ed and punished in Mexico a proceeding recognized as legal by all justice and in ternational law. Consul Briglmm and Cutting affirm, that the libel was only circulated in the United States. Even iii. this case the Mexicans claim that they would have the right to arrest and convict Cutting aright which of course the United States will not recognize. Telegraphic reports --.indicate that Cut ting was released yesterday. The motion made by" Willis Eaton at the stock nieeting.Teliitive to the back taiffipaid ^naccoTTiTtofBillirigs cotinly is a good-one and was unanimously car ried. Between tlie tiiiie the railroad was built, and the county-organized- many thousands of dollars Wero paid by the. railroad to the Territory for taxes oft that part of the road passing through Billiiigs county. Subtracting the amount of expense we were to the Terri tory, there still remains a balance esti mated at from $6,000 to $10,000. This amount is of course justly due to us and there seems to be no reasonable doubt that it cannot be secured. The Territor ial Secretary's answer to a question re lative to the matter that: "An unorgan ized county stands in tlte. light of a gar den to a gardener rather than that of a ward to a guardian," indicates that there may be some opposition to the measure, but its eminent justice stands a good chance of winning the required approval for it. Additional tiocal. The rouud-up camped at Sentinel Butte last night, having worked Andrew's creek yesterday. The OX outfit, which started the round-up, cut out about 600 beeves Tuesday and will probably ship to-day from Dickinson. All the river out-fits have been gathering beeves and the most of them will ship soon. The round-up will work up the river probably disbanding at the Neiinmela ranch. The quality of the beef is scarcely as good as was expected. Clay Leighton, one of the men who stole some horses from the Mortou farm near South Heart, two years ago. and after being arrested, escaped from the Dickinson jail, was rearrested at Buffalo Gap recently. Bping brought back to Mandan, he was thuro sentenced to five years and eight months in the Bismarck penitintiory, where he is now "doing time" for the Territory. His partner Scott, who escaped from Dickinson at the same time, has not since been heard from.- To close out the stock of Studebaker wagons now on-liand, I will make prices for cash that are lower than the whole sale factory rate. The wagons are new and first-class and have Studebaker Bros, full guarantee as to. roundness. They will be sold, cheaper.tthan any wagons that have ever been sold in this country, alid cheaper than they «an be bought in car lots at tho factory^ The only reason for making these rates is to close out Btock on hand.

Mr. Reynolde of ljeadville, Pa^ is vis iting at the Custw Trail cattle Co's. ranch.

The hope of doing something to aid his4ead comrade Jgnt wings to the errandjvf mercy, Inavefy quiet andunostentatio'nsway Miss Lena Eager and Harry Barker were made one at Dickinson .last Sunday.

[Sinee the: aboye was put in type, we learn from last night's Mandan Pioneer that Shaff ner was seen in Dickinson Tuesday and that lustructions have been sent fair his arrest f' E. (x. Paddock and 6. D. Kennedy! were the sufferers by a runaway Monday, afternoon, that fright easily have resulted seriously. They were few miles from town when the buck-jjoard seat broke and in the confusion a line dropped. In attempting, to recover it, the horses started to run and both^pas Beligeis were thrown forward on the,pole Kennedy falling under the wheels and Paddock "staying with the leather" on the tongue. An inventory of dama ages showed a sprained ankle and count less bruises on Kennedy while Paddock escaped with several scratches and.-cuts. Lightning's Deadly Work. The sad news was brought in yesterday morning by Riley Brooks that George Fruserhad been killed at eight in the morning by a stroke of lightning and that Ed. Connolly of the 13 outfit, was badly stunned at the same time. Coro ner Martin and Moses Ryder started im mediately for the scene of the accident and last evening brought in all that was mortal of poor George. The particulars are about as follows: George and Connelly had started with a buneh of horses from the Ref. Car Co's. lower camp' and had gone about fire miles Whe* the who suffered: greatly from the shock says that he scarcely remembers any thing except that his horse jumped vio-. lentiy aud that he became unconscious. When he came to himself, he looked around for George and saw him lying on his face some distance away. He went to him and- after considerable difficulty turned him partly on his back, when he saw that he was dead. His clothes were burning, but Connelly, in his dazed and prostrated condition, found it impossi ble to put out the tire.. He managed to ride into camp and tell the boys where the accident occurred, when be again became unconscious. Brooks started im mediately for town to get assistance and a team went from camp to bring in George. It was found that the bolt of lightning had entered his head, bruising it badly. It had then passed through his body into the saddle, which it pierced full of holes, thence through the liorso, which was instantly killed and iuto the ground. Thus passed away one of the noblest boys that rode the range. Always pleas ant, genial aud kind-hearted, he was at all times and places aperfect gentleman one of Nature's noblemen. No one was a greater favorite than he aud his acquain tances became immediately his warm frieuds. We never heard an unfriendly remark about George while the good words spoken for him were legion. His parents reside at River John, Nova Scotia, and were notified by Dan. Mc Kenzie, who is also a native of the same place. The funoral took place at two o'clock this afternoon, the services being con ductedjby Rev. Mr. Boylan of Glendive, who spoke feelingly of the lessons taught by the accident. The 'remains will be sent to his old home for burial. A fine metallic casket was ordered from Bis marck and in every way possible his friends tried to show their appreciation of poor George's worth.

Shippers are bidding.^.largely,---^-' process that invariably raises the price." Montana and Dakota rangers are top ping the market Onff^f the greatest trials abont a cow ranch is to get the horse-herd "located,''' so that they will not wander away. When horses haye been raised on a cer tain range, they can be taken hundreds of miles away and unless-watched elose Jy. are liable at any time to return all those hundreds of miles to their native 'stamping ground." Instances of this are constantly coming to light, but per haps as remarkable a-one as has ever oe curred,happened in thecaseof a team belonging to John Manning, formerly stieriff of Lawrence county. As narrated by the Black pits: Pioneer, it is as fol lows: "When John^iimtiigTSnil^iinib ~Motft ana to Deadwood he bronght with him a span of small bay. broncho mares. He drove them in a buggy for a number of years about Deadwood and then put 'H^i them on his ranch for breeding purpos- '•&& es. They each raised twits for four years which ran on the range with them. A year or so ago the mothers left the range upon which they had been feeding with tbeir progency so long, and returned to their, favorite stamping grounds in Mont ana, many hundred miles distant, and from which they had been absent eight or nine years. Mr. Manning exhausted inquiry for the runaways and then gam them up as lost, thinking they had been stolen.
