We received this week, from Maiden, an order for some circulars describing the peculiar proclivities of a citizen of that town, hut being apprehensive that the statements contained therein might reasonably give ofiense to the person referred to, and the matter being of no public interest, we return the manu script and refer the sender to his local paper the Maiden Argus.

We understand that this firm have the contract to make a considerable addition to the roller rink in that town. Yesterday morning's train from the west had on board 70 busted Cœur d'Alene miners. They had hoarded the train at Missoula, and although ttiey had nothing with which to pay fare they refused to leave the train and the con ductor thought it best not to attempt to compel them to get off. So he telegraph ed the condition of affairs ahead to Helena, and when the train pulled in a number of officers were awaiting its ar rival, ready to eject the intruders forci bly if found necessary. But they got off quietly and at present are rustling for something to eat, and some wav of earning a living —[Independent. Fur the information of our readers who are desirous of being made ac quainted with the personnel of the county Democratic central committee we publish their names us they were selected at the county convention iast year: Jos. Reed, Junction; E. W. Dunne. Huntley; Win. .Shultz, Coulson; Warren E. Stilson, James Grady, Alex. Devine, Win. J. Lutz, Thus. Wheeler andJ. Hopkins, Billings; Frank Bell, Canyon: T. O.

Charley Brown of the firm of Brown A Davis is organizing an Indian combi nation troupe, with which he will star in the East this summer and tall. He lias secured 3U Crow Indians ot both sexes and with their aid will give repre sentations of Indian fights, festivals and foragings, interspersed with war dances, dog feasts and other toothsome and en tertaining sketches. The Indians in mimic battle will drop under the unerr ing hut unloaded rille of the great Terror of the Prairies, Liver-Eating Johnson, who has been secured at immense out lay to show his stalwart form and re enact his Indian-slaying and general blood-curdling experiences to the effete denizens of the East. With his stirring ex peri lice of oyer 30 years on the very farthermost outside edge of the frontier and counting on the butt of his rille, 31 cones, representing that number of hos tile red-skins that have become good Indians through his individual efforts. Liver-Eating Johnson should certainly form a strong counter-attraction to Bar num's Sacred White Elephant, after whose build, by the way. he is fashioned. A young lady from this town will ac company the troupe playing the role of the Scout's Daughter. Notwithstanding the disagreeable weather a large party of ladies and gentlemen assembled at the skating rink on Tuesday evening to take part in the festivities upon the occasion of the hall and banquet given by the Masonic fraternity. Over 50 couples were pres ent and they enjoyed themselves to the fullest extent. The hall, considering the short time allowed for the purpose, was tastefully decorated. The music fur nished by the Second Cavalry hand under the leadership of Bandmaster M. C. Meyrelies, was as might be ex pected, exceedingly good, so good in fact that dancing was kept up until an early or rather late hour on Wednesday morning. The banquet which was pro vided by the Headquarters hotel was one of the best, if not the best ever given in Billings, and reflected much credit upon Col. Greene and his assis tants. Altogether the hall and banquet was a decided success and those who were present were amply repaid for braving the disagreeable weather to at tend. Among the guests present were Judge Langhornc of the Bozeman Chron ical, Adjutant Holden, 2d cavalrv, and Lieut. Clav, 17th infantry. As usual Bil lings sustained its reputation among Western towns for turning out a large assembly of refined people, especially charming and well dressed ladies. This entertainment will be looked back to with pleasure by all those who attended and it is only to be regretted that such assemblies do not more frequently recur, as they afford our people a greater op portunity of becoming acquainted with each other socially, than any other means at hand. The opinion delivered by Judge Co burn in the Savage assignment case sum marized from an exchange is as follows: "This is a complaint by H. H. Mund and other assignees to enjoin the sherift from proceeding with certain writs of attachment levied upon property assign ed by Savage*to them. The assignment among other provisions sets forth that tliose creditors who would release the assignors should have a preference and payment in full if the estate were suf ficient. This assignment was made De cember 31, 1883, the property assigned amounting to $105,000. Soon afterwards the creditors attached the property in the hands of the assignees, and this suit followed, being a struggle for priorty on the part of all Concerned. After recit ing what the debtors should do the Judge proceeds to state that they are not discharged from the payment of the balance that may be due to their credi tors after the assignment is settled. Their only relief would be a proceeding in bankruptcy, for which there is no law, or a release by their creditors which to be good must be voluntary, not made under stress. The debtors cannot make for themselves a bankrupt or insolvent law when the legislature of this terri tory lias not made or provided one; they have undertaken to do so in this assign ment. The condition of release being for the : r benefit jt operates to force their creditors to take less than the whole amount of their just debts. The assignors may present un application to amend the assignment if they desire to do so. The better opinion of the great est judges seems to have been that such a condition in an assignment is vicious, etc." We are informed that the assign ors intend to take advantage of the Judge's opinion in so far as it permits them to amend the assignment by ex punging the preferential cluuse. The following are the names of the bandsmen of the Second Cavalry, who discoursed sweet music for the Masonic dance on Tuesday evening, and tpent Wednesday visiting our town: Rand Master— M.C.
