The Yellowstone Journal not having
sufficient space in which to give vent to
ild jealous animosity toward Billings,
will assume the form of a daily hand
bill about October 1st.
T. II, C„ your ever welcome epistle
arrived just as we go to press, conse
quent!}' it will have to "hang on the
hook" until next issue, when we hope
to have another letter to annex to it.
Billings people are emigrating t to
Bozeman and other towns west.—[Yel
lowstone Journal.
That's a fact, and Miles City is rapidly
moving up to Billings, thus "westward
still the star of empire takes its course."
The road to the Minkina Water coun
try is a matter which should receive
some attention at the hands of our citi
zens. We understand that it could be
shortened some twelve miles by a few
days work of two or three men with
teams.
A general wholesale house would
make a most lucrative investment by
establishing a branch house in Billings.
The large territory tributary to this
town is more than sufficient to furnish a
.good trade for one such establishment,
and it would draw retail business here
that might go elsewhere.
The Helena Independent facetiously
remarks that portable houses arc in
favor in Billings—because they will lie
convenient when the town is moved.
The Independent should send its cor
respondent to look tlie town over, and
if he, after a fair inspection of the build
ings and examination into its advan
tages, thinks it should be moved, we
will then secure one of the required
portable houses and make preparations
to go to Helena—in a short time. It
would seem that there arc "many dogs
in the Montana manger," if we may be
pardoned for the expression.
The unprecedented and continuous
boom of our "Magic Citv" since the
an i val of building nutria! and railway
facilities, is giving our eastern neighbor
a most smarting cause for much sneer
ing, and it Ls more than likely that they
may come to grief ere their jealousy
is appeased. Billings is no longer tot
tering upon a paper foundation, and
that is what is breaking Miles City's
heart. Facts and figures bear us out in
(be assertion that more buildings are
under way here, more freight is re
ceived, more cattle are being shipped,
more men with capital aie locating at
this place, and that more business is
< jail y transacted in Billings, than at any
«Aber point west of the Missouri river
to the snowy peaks of the Rockies
ATMOSPHERE.
The last rose of summer has budded,
dock Frost lias visited us, it ha* snowed
upon the lofty peaks and stock in the
Hall Mountain coal mine is on the rise,
all of which are gentle reminders of tlie
the approach of fall, when the buzzard
flies South and the timejeomes to think
about banking up the old shack. The
next reminder will bo tliat winter is
creeping on, when tlie shivering cay
t,te will lie. seen sitting upon the meat
less skeleton of a fallen carcass, licking
his chops and howling for that mercy
not his lot; when the cow hoy's teeth
will chatter in spite of him, with the
thoughts weighing upon his mind of his
- lait summer's debauch, of the castle in
Broadway Square that he does'nt own,
of the homo tliat he never could ap
preciate and of the girl ho left behind
hf q? While the cowboy's teeth are
•lilt chattering, the unlucky gambler in
another qnartcr will be seen smoking
the ashes in an old clay pipe andclub
bing himself for having bet $700 on that
last pot, and as he sizes up his summer
coat and buttons it more closely about
him, he fingers his vest pocket for bits
that are not there, and finds instead an
expired pawn check given last 4th of
July for his trunk containing $400 worth
of winter clothing. He is dismally
wretched, and waltzes down Boiler
Avenue in search of what he has'nt got
—a friend. The tramp printer is light
ing out for the sunny south. In an in
ebriated condition he took passage on
the night previous, but lias been switch
ed off'on to a side-track and awakens
with the drapery of a box-car wrapt
about him, just as old Solis peeping
over the mountain. Rubbing his eyes
he wonders where he is, but aware that
the early bird catches tlie worm, he
scrambles out and takes in tbo town
before tlie milk man has been his
rounds. The grumbling tenderfoot is
at war with his guardian angel for not
leading him to that sunny clime the
good J<ord never made—a new Jerusa
lem of milk and honey, where seeding
time never domes gentle Annie, and a
golden harvest is ever ripe. He is cold
too, but has ordered a $4.50 suit from
the East and is on his way over to the
freight-house in hopes that they have
come. We will suppose election to be
near at hand now, and that the hungry'
office-seeker, (of which tliero is a large
crop this vear,) is on his way down
town, shaking tho horny hands of
friends lie never recognized before. He
button-holes the section boss, and com
mences to harangue about the poor labor
ing man ; he tells him that he is being
robbed by mammoth corporations and
monopolies. Attracting tlie attention
of several heavy tax-payers, he ingen
iously switches off on to the star route
frauds and extravagant harbor bill,
winding up with a grandiloquent speech
in favor of civil service reform, $e is
the independent candidate for street
commissioner, and is on his way down
to the office of the Northwestern Shriek
for Liberty and Political Condenser to
have his announcement published
With a patronizing air he inquires for
the managing editor, at the same time
unrolling a ream or more of closely
written loolseap about canal boats and
rail splitting. The editor is out, but he
leaves a check and instructions to have
his name whooped into the king row of
high mucky mucks, and sallies over tlie
way to the Cosmonolitan. More time
having elapsed, the wind swoops down
tho valley, winter is here and all earth
is robed in snowy whiteness. In a lit
tle log hut up the way sits a "Maid of
Athens" hovering over a cold stove,
and lamenting at not having made hay
while the sun shone; it is cloudy now
and as the last spark of fire flickers and
dies so does her spirits, and in the
gloomy silence she is pondering over
the things that might have been, and
that are.
Most patient reader we are sorry for
having drawn only the dark side of the
picture, but the editor of this paper is
in attendance at the Miles City Repub
lican round-up, and there is no copy on
the hook, hence this atmosphere.

the pioneers of civilization and enter
prising rustlers.
