Last week in an item in Tur. Herald, referring to the charge preferred against M. Susman, for selling meat without a license it was stated that Susman had given Judge McGinness a standing re tainer. The Judge informs us that this is a mistake, as owing to his position as probate judge, he Joes not feel at liber ty to accept any special retainer, while fully entitled to practice in all courts of the territory except the probate court of this countv. Among the arrivals on Tuesday even ings west-bound express were Henry VanSinden, a prominent citizen of Brooklyn N. Y. and father of W. II. VanSinden of this town. Mr. Van Simien will look over this section of country, and if satisfied with it. will settle in Billings or vicinity. We are sure our citizens would be pleased to have him settle down here.

At the territorial con vention delegates will be chosen to at tend the national convention which meets in Chicago on the 3d of June to nominate candidates for the presidency and vice-presidency. The primaries for the county convention will be held on the 19tli inst., when all interested are expected to attend and vote early and often, We have examined a copy of .a map of Yellowstone county and the Crow reservation, prepared by John John ston, C. E., of tliis town. The map shows all the portions of the county which have been surveyed, the princi pal rivers, streams, mountain ranges etc. It is accompanied by a pamphlet containing a very good description of | Yo'lowstone county, and the town of Billings. The work will be a useful one to many people, and forms a very de sirable hook to send to people at a dis tance, who wish to obtain information regarding the town, county, or the res ervation. We observe among our citizens a gen eral feeling of approval at the excellent manner in w hich Duputy-Sherilf James G ! rït*4y performs the duties appertain ing to his office. These duties are num erous and frequently unpleasant, more especially when arrests have to he made but no man could do an unpleasant duty in a more geinlemanly or humane manner than Mr. Grady. In quite a number of cases, where the law would have upheld him in inflicting severe physical punishment on persons re sisting arrest, he has at considerable peril and discomfort to himself, re frained from resenting the oflence. and we deem it but justice that such con duct should lie recognized. On Monday morning the lion. John Coburn, the newly appointed Judge of the district court of tnis judicial dis trict, passed through Billings, on his way to Giendive to hohl district court there. In conversation with a repre sentative of the Herald the Judge expressed himself highly pleased with what he had seen of Montana, and un doubtly his good opinion of it will in crease as he becomes more familiar with The people, the climate and the country generally. The Judge has temporarily taken up his residence in Bozeman, and j after getting through the pressure of j holding the spring sessions of court will i make up his mind between Bozeman, Billings,Miles and Giendive as a perma nent place of residence. The Judge will return to his former home tins spring to wind up some business matters and on lfis return Mrs. Coburn will accom-1 pauy him to Montana. If the Judge] leaves it to her to decide their future j home, there is no doubt that Billings j will be the place chosen. ___-________ Meeting of the Yellowstone Eonnd-up. | The Yellowstone round-up held their spting meeting in the Billings court ; house on Tuesday afternoon. They pro-1 ceeded to business by electing S. R. Miller chairman. Governor Crosby he-1 ing present was introduced to the as-j semhlv by Mr. Garvin. Tiie Governor' made a very neat speech and in alluding , to the disease among cattle in some of ; the States, signified his willingness to do anything in his powerto assi.-t the stock growers of this territory in preventing] tlie introduction of this disease into , Montana. The meeting then proceeded to ex amine and audit Gil Is. It was resolved that the executive ; committee should communicate with tiie j Crow Indian Agent at once, in order to • ascertain what arrangement can he ! made to secure Yellowstone round-up ' cattle which are now straying on the | reservation. Resolved, That an outfit be sent to the | Musselshell round-up to gather and ' firing back Yellowstone cattle which may be on the Musselshell ranges. Resolved, That the executive com mittee appoint a sub committee to I count the hulls on range and if there are not a sufficient number for each i brand, to require owners to make up the deficiency. It was resolved that in order to pro tect the winter ranges, all the cattle should he driven back to the Lake Basin and kept there during the sum mer so that the valley range will be reserved for the winter. Mr. Garvin made a very forcible speech in which he called the attention of those present lo the necessity of sending men to the legislature who would give some consideration to the protection of the stock interests.

Tho Banquet Tendered by the Citizens of Bilfings to tho Members of the Yel lowstone Stock Associa' ion. Oil Tuesday the citizens of Billings availed themselves of the presence in Bil lings of a largu nm«her of tho Yellow stone round up at their annual meeting, to lender them a banquet. There bus long existed in town a strong feeling that the first favorable opportunity should ho seiz ed, to mark the appreciation of our citizens, collectively, for tiie stockmen of tho valley and those districts tributary to the town, such as Grey Bull and Stinking Water dis tricts. Arrangements were accordingly made, and on Tuesday evening, at the Headquarters, a very creditable banquet was spread. Among those present were Sam Garvin, captain of the round-up, Peter Larson, Martin Miner, S. ïi. Miller, A. E. Parker, C. DcMaris, F. B. Konnard, Olaf Lafversoti, W. H. Brown, A. A. Ellis, J. J.

Lindsay, Fred Johnson, C. Voffker, Walter Matheson and a number of others. Had the time admitted of a more ex tended notice a larger number of our citi zens would have been present; as it was the town wm fairly represented. Judge Matheson presided, and after sup per was over and the sparkling champagne began to circulate opened the programme by referring to the occasion of the meet ing, the friendly feeling of the citizens of Billings towards the stockmen of the val ley, and their appreciation of the support accorded to the town by the stockmen. This feeling, and a desire to extend and cement the present friendly relations, had culminated in the present banquet. He proposed the health of the stockmen of ihe Yellowstone round-up. This was re sponded to by Sam Garvin, captain of the round-up, in appropriate Anns, lie said that the stockmen entertained the most friendly feelings towards the town, and fully appreciated the present exhibition of kindly feeling tendered to them by the people of Billings. S. II. Wilde gave an able address, in the course of which lie urged the stockmen to form a stock association and also to take immediate steps to petition the governor of j tliis territory to appoint a sanitary com mission to grey lit the entrance into Mon tana of cattle affected by the foot and | mouth disease. E. S. Tutt responded m a ' oriel but affective speech. Otto Franc responded to the toast of the ! cattle men of Northern Wyoming. Speech making then became epidemic, ami among others addresses were ma le made by II. ('. | Lovell, Dr. Bole, I'eter Lardon, 11. W. ! Rowley, John Cook, Thomas McGirl, II. ! H, Mu# Walter I). Story, A. A. Ellis, <'harles Dcmaris, A. E Barker, S. U. Miller, ; C. E. Barney, Geo. As!», James Fuller, Capt. McKenzie, C. A. Dewar, J. J. Walk, Sheriff Ferguson, S. A. S.veeny, A. Devine, L. II. Fenske, Walter Matheson, and a number of others, whose names have es caped us. The general tenor of the speeches made by the stockmen was indicative of their good will towards Hillings and wishes tor its continued prosperity, and those made by the citizens of Billings bore strong tes timony of tiie appreciation by the cilizvns of the importance of the influence of the stockmen as a factor in th« well-being and advancement of the town. During the evening the health of our representatives, 1'. W. McAdow and S. II. Erwin was proposed and heartily received. Col Greene responded in a neat speech to the health of "Our Host." Right here it is but justice to the proprietors of the Headquarters to say that they received notice to prepare a banquet hut two or three hours before the guests assembled. Notwithstanding this they served up an extri ntely creditable banquet, the attend ance and general style being all that could be desired. A pleasant feature ol the evening was tl.e musical programme under the charge of Benjamin Ely >lr. E y himself gave j s vetal songs which were very iavorably received. He is undoub edly one of the best vocalists in town. Chris Voelker sang about ihe numerous adventures and mis haps of a little black bull that descended from tiie mountains. G. M. liays sang "Rocked in the Cradle of the Deep" in ex cellent style. Lesley Bates, in a volt e like that of a dying swan, gave "Nancy Lee." Capt. McKenzie sang a hunting song. Besides the:-c there were quite a number ot other songs, too many to enumerate, l iie party broke up to the tune of "Auld Lang rfyne," which all sang with the vigor if not with the accent of native-born Scotch men. From beginning to end the affair passed *off very satisfactorily, and guests and en tertainers spent a very sociable and enjoy able evening, We trust that tiie annual banquet to the Yellowstone Round-up will become one ol tiie standing institutions oi the town.

A recent visit of a representative of tl.e Herald found this embryo city beginning to awake from its winter lethargy, end an ticipating un active season. The ire went out at this point in the river on the 24th lilt., and the ferry host owned jointly by Paul McCormick & Co. ami Brown <fc Davis, was put in running orde: two days at erward. and now runs regularly. Junc tion is still of (ptite limited dimensions, being to a great extent still in the log shack period; hut a munberofthe business houses are large and commodious, particu larly that of Paul McCormick it Co..one of the heavy business houses ot eastern Mon tana. There are in all about fifty buildings of all kinds in town and the population numbers about 125, though according to the vote polled last election the population should be between 400 and 500. A much larger volume of business is clone here than a casual observer would dream of. The supplies for the country lying between it and Maiden on the north and Ft. McKinney on the south to a considerable extent are sent out through and from Junction. During 1883 from live to six million pounds of freight were transported by wagon from Junction to various points north and south, 2,000,000 of tliis being government freights. The reduction of the Crow reservation to the Big Horn would give Junction, or rather that part of it which would at once spring up around the Northern Pacific station on the opposite side of tiie river, un everlasting boom and make it one of Lite most desirable business points in the territory. From a social point of view Junction presents more of the aspects of a frontier town than any place in the territory that is in such close proximity to a railway. This is caused to a great extent by the railway and station buildings being across the river and on the Crow reservation, and the town is thus not so accessible to the blank-dashed tenderfoot and tlie innovations of eastern life that invariably accompany him. There are a large number of saloons and in all of them the old time tariff of two hits a drink is rigid'y prcsei ved, except in one instance, and the degenerate innovator who thinks 12-1 cents enough to charge fora drink is looked down on in the extensive and in fluential circle of saloon men in town. A Hinüber of the saloo s supply mu-ic, and bar-room dances are frequent and public, the cow-boy, freighter or sheep-herder who comes into town alter weeks of lonely life on the prairies and in the hills deeming it glory enough for one evening to diink and dance wiili a fair female, however frail she may lie. Junction possesses a brass band, composed of a number of its leading young men, and very good music indeed is discoursed by tliis band. Its members are G us Garnie, who is leader; \V. G. Hughes, B flat cornet; Joe Reed, 1st alto; Joseph Sharp, 2d alto; Charles Spiers, tenor; J. J. Campbell, trombone; James N. ! King, tuba; Moses Gales, snare drum;! Frank McCormick, bass drum, and Charles D. Brown. Tiie only hotel in the place is j kept by Joe Kee l, who runs it in creditable style. Paul McCormick, the soul of the place, is absent in tl.e East, visiting his old home in York State and buying goods. J. G. Axtell is the manager of his extensive business, and is a well informed gentleman : of thorough business habits and courteous manners. The district school is held in Junction, Miss Maud Green of Pease Bot tom being the teacher At present thir teen pupils are in attendance. Cow Ponies.
