Judge Coburn went east on Monday evening's train, destined for his old home in Indiana. He will return in a short time with his wife. Dr. Parker returned from his eastern trip this morning. He reports having had an exceeding'y pleasant time and looks much refreshed by his rest. R. B. Briggs of the Briggs-Ellis Cattle company was in town Wednesday. He came down to interview the county treasurer with regard to his taxes. Rev. Mr. Todd of Glendive was in town last week, having come up to at tend the first annual conference of the Congregational Church in Montana. D. M. Erskine and wife arrived in i Billings on Monday to take up their per manent residence here. Mr. Erskine i lias bought out Pendleton's fruit busi ness. Some additional instruments for the band arrived this week. They consist of a bass drum and cymbals, a very handsome snare drum, an L fiat cornet, and a B-flat tenor. The Belknap block is rapidly ap proaching completion. The contractors, Nelson, Crowe & Gagnon are rapid workers and at the same time do their work in good style. Thoi report of the first National Bank of this town appears in tins issue of the Herald and a perusal of it will con\inee our readers that the bank is prospering j under its excellent management. j The Yellowstone Roundup report sat ! isl'actory progress, the calve crop, how ever, being somewhat light. More beef cattle v.oll be shipped east than last sea son, and they will be of a better quality. T. C. Power was a passenger on the „ ._ ,, \i,, I1( i., v Mr J delayed Pacihe express cl Monday. Mr. j Power spent the tune between the ur ; ; I i rival and departure of the train in ener getic conversation with some of his Billings friends. J. R. M irks &. Co. are moving their Belknap stock to Curry, where they will, do a large business. We are pleased to note the success that has attended this enterprising firm from the time they started in Belknap. The tide of travel to the I'aik is set- ting in strongly. We hear of numerous I excursions from the East this month to I tl, e enchanting regions of tiie Park, and ! several private excursions ltoui this j ^ 0U11 are be made. Win. Miller of the Post leaves to-day at of on a trip up the valley. He will spend a week or two at Emigrant Gulch and may take iii the Park before he returns He goes pursued by the good wishes of a host of warm friends. The Billings brass band, considering the short time which they have been practicing, furnished some excellent music yesterday. This hand promises i to be one of the institutions of which our town may well be proud. C. E. Westbrook has moved his livery stable to his old stand on the south side of track on 27th street, in the rear of McAdow & Covely's store. Mr. West brook says that his business has lately increased beyond his expectations. Alexander McMillan, postmaster at Roundup, on the Musselshell, was in town on Monday. He reports th« country looking weil in ins section. The Musselshell has gone down sufficiently to allow it to be forded at any point. E. W. Winter, vice-president of the Omaha railway, with his wife and family occupied a private car which was at tached to Wednesday's Pacific express. Mr. Winter goes to Portland and will visit tiie National Park on his return. David Matheson returned on Thurs day evening's express from Murray ville, Like most of those from this section who have tried the Cœur d'Alenes he returns to Billings with increased experience, but no very high opinion of the Cœur d'Alenes. A man over in Billings received a sealed proposal from an eastern lady re cently, and the document was followed by the lady herself before the poor man had time to catch his breath. They are to be married, however.—[Record. Who is he ? Geo. Breckcnridge returned yester day morning from his visit to Milwaukee, where lie left his mother, whose illness caused his trip, convalescing. Mr. Breckcnridge brought a fine trotting horse with him, regarding the merits of which he is very reticent. Eugene Richardson has purchased the interest of S. J. Hopple in the Mer chants Hotel property and will hereafter conduct the business alone. Mr. Rich ardson is ona of the most popular hotel men in town, and will without doubt meet with merited success. The Indian commissioner advertises for proposals for beef for the various tribes. For Montana Indians the quan tities required are Crows, 800,000 lbs; Blackfeet, 300,000 lbs; also 400,000 for the agency ut Fort Peck and 200,000. for the Fort Belknap agency. The Sunday school concert in the church on Sunday evening was a great success. The children had been well drilled and all acquitted themselves in a creditable manner. The audience was large and appreciative. The choir ren dered some excellent selections. N. D. Malcolm was a passenger oiV> Monday's Atlantic express, being called east by the illness of his wife. Mr. Malcolm has sold out his business at Thompson Falls, hut will stay with his Billings business, believing that Billings is one of the best towns on the line. Maj. Blaine, Brother of James G. Blaine, was a passenger on Thursday morning's west-bound express. He is evidently a man of nerve, as he paced the platform, sporting a stove-pipe hat, apparently without a thought of the possible consequences of his reckless daring. The Bozeman Courier is said to be rapidly falling behind in public estima tion, as it compares so unfavorably with its able rival the Chronicle. The family of the old man Alderson are said to be urging him to sell out the Courier, as his unfortunate disposition and habits are proving too great a load for a newspaper to carry. The ladies of the Congregational Church added to the festivities of yes terday by giving an ice cream festival in the dining room of Windsor Hotel. Large numbers of our citizens refreshed themselves by partakingof the tempting dishes which the ladies set before them, and we presume the affair was a finan cial success. Some practical j >kers, being well aware of the strong Democratic procliv ities of our friend. Dr. Bole, unfurled a streamer bearing the legend "Blaine and Logan" on the flag staff over his building yesterday. Notwithstanding that "Doc" was somewhat angry we noticed that the streamer was at half mast, where it will hang next Novem ber. Dr. E. II. Sands, formerly of Billings has sent us a specimen of the rock from a mineral lead he owns near Curry. It apparently carries a good deal of min oral, but with that characteristic caution which formerly distinguished the Dr. in theological matters, he has appropri ately named the lead the "Agnostic," in reference to this uncertainty regarding its richness. A San Francisco firm send us an ad for publication ami oiler in payment a j book entitled "Breezes from the Woods." j This firm are evidently not familiar w ith this section of country, or they would know that Montana is already amply supplied with breezes. Buch an offer might possibly take in Livingston,where zephyrs are somewhat scarce, but it wont work here. We are indebted to F. L. Greene for the pamphlet containing the constitu tion of the State of Montana, that is to be, adopted by the late constitutional convention of which Mr. Greene was a member. Accompanying it are the or dinances adopted bv the convention the memorial to Congress and an address to the voters of the territory regarding the proposed constitution. The town presented an unusually lively appearance on Saturday last, owing to to arrival of the ^ ellowstone round-up outfit. The boys proceeded to enjov themselves in the orthodox ! fashion by blowing in their wealth for the benefit of the dealers in wet grocer ies. They were, however, a well-be haved lot of men, and we should be glad to see them in town oftener. We are in receipt of a very neat plat of the new town of Great Falls, destined ! by J. J. Hill and Paris Gibson to be a great manufacturing city. On the plat are handsome engravings of Black Eagle Falls, Rainbow Falls and Great Falls. The piace certainly has decided natural advantages and hacked up by the well known energy of these gentlemen is quite likely to become a point of impor tance. Charles Simmer left on Wednesday morning for Cooke City to look «after a number of valuable leads lie is interest ed in in the New World mining district. He owns a number of promising leads on the headwaters of Stillwater creek and the vicinity of Goose Lake. In this re gion the leads are mostly true fissure veins, and where any development has been done have proved of uniform excellence. The Italian Band have returned from Eagle City to Billings, music having be come too expensive a luxury for that section of the country. They say men in the Cœur d'Alenes think themselves lucky if they can buy whisky, tobacco and other necessaries. They were given a hearty welcome at tiie 4lh of July ball last evening. The band will remain here, having been engaged by McKee Bros, to play at their place. Thomas Sloan, a Musselshell rancher, was in town this week, lie owns a fine ranch on tho Musselshell at the mouth of Parrot creek. He says his crops are in excellent condition. He put in a few acres of wheat as an experiment and re ports it to be a complete success. He says there is a general wish in his sec tion of country for some one to build a grist mill, in which event a large area in that district would be sown with wheat. John G. Tripp of Musselshell was in town on Wednesday. He has contract ed to carry the mail on the route recent ly established from Musselshell P. O. to Martinsdale. The service will be senn weekly and will prove a decided con venience to the many ranchers and others residing on this route. It will serve tiie following post-offices, most of which have been recently organized, viz.: Bull Camp, Roundup, Rose Mound, Layma, Olden, Rockhill, Dodgetown, Merino and Haymaker. We regret to record the illness of James T. Westbrook. He is suffering from a mild attack of typhoid fever. The fever has not yet left him but he is in a fair wav to immediate recovery. Lesley Bates left on Tuesday for a short visit to the Fark. Judge Proctor is at present on the upper Stillwater having a quiet look around to see if he can't corral a copper lead in that promising region. In the action brought by Meta Keosh against R. J. Anderson for wages, judge-'St ment was reserved. The ease was tried moth Springs, on Tuesday, to complete,^ before Judge l'eavev, at Park City. Geo. B. Huhne went up. to the Mara the negotiation with the workmen in possession of the hotel for the surrender of that property. A freight engine which was switching at Forsythe on Thursday ran oyer and killed a man who was crossing the track/^ We have not ascertained the man's name, but he was a section foreman on the western portion of the railway. Some alarm is felt by the legal fra ternity, of Billings, at M. Susman's ex pressed intention to add a law pnctice to his already varied business. He act ed as counseljin a ease at Park City and is said to have displayed great forensic ability. S. J. Hopple has retired from the management of the Merchants hotel leaving it in the hands of E. M. Rich ardson. Mr. Richardson is well quali fied.to run a hotel, and will no doubt retain und increase the number of cus tomers patronizing the Merchants. J. A. Church was in town this week in company with the Gallagher surveying party, in which lie has charge of a com pass. Mr. Church informs us that the result of his work this season surveying and traveling through the valley be tween Billings and Merrill is to convince him more thoroughly than ever of the excellence of the country tributary to Billings. Like almost everyone who has left this town, lie returns to find it im proving steadily and is better satisfied with it than ever. We should be pleas ed to see Mr. Church once more in busi ness here. On Saturday last Thomas Sloan picked up a skull about a mile northeast of town, near the edge of the slough. Some hairof a dark fine quality still ad hered to it and a portion of one of the ears. Those who examined it pronounced it the skull of a white man. A few bones were found in the same vicinity, but nothing that would give any clue to the identity of the former owner of the skull. The deceased had evidently been shot to death, as there was a bullet hole through the center of the forehead Lying so near town it is a wonder that no person had found it before C* ce City George Geer writes from Cook that W. II. Armstrong, commissioner of railways, is expected there shortly. He will he accompanied by a number of capitalists, who w ill look over the dis trict with the view of investing. 'Hie j Daisy is being opened up, a tunnel hav j jnf , i )een run j n about 20 feet, and a fine ! portable lendin body of ore struck. In the Chipmunk a four-foot vein of high grade ore has been uncovered. Many of the mincis there are anxious to see a railroad built from Billings up the Clarke's Fork to Cooke. The route is much more favor able than that from Cinnabar. As quite a number of people up the valley are in the habit of borrowing The Herald from their neighbors who sub scribe for it, instead of subsciibing for it themselves, we have concluded to fur nish it free for the next six months to such non-subscribing readers. Any per son sending us their address and stating that they want The Herald, but can't afford to pay for it, will receive it free for the next six months. Those who subscribe and pay for a newspaper have a right to its enjoyment without being bothered - by converting it into a library. Mr. Holmberg is turning out somo very handsome dressed stone work in Ins yard here, to be used in the Miles City school house. The stone from the bluffs north of town looks remarkably well after being worked up, and experts ! say its qualities are such as to render it a a a in in to of of is well adapted for building purposes. Next season we expect to see a number of handsome residences in this town built of this stone. Tiie First National Bank will no doubt lead off next spring with their new stone block, on tiie pres ent site of the Windsor. A builder in forms ns that tiie cost of a stone build here would be very slightly in excess of a brick one. M. Gallagher and his surveying party were camped in the vicinity of town for a few days this week. They have returned from surveying in tiie western portion of tue valley, their most westerly wort being about eight miles beyond Merrill. They have sur veyed some lands on the upper portion of Sweetgrass and in the Lake Basin re gion. They left on Thursday for the Flat Willow country, in Meagher coun ty, where Mr. Gallagher has a contract to survey a quantity of land. There are about 20 in tiie party, among whom are P. M. Gallagher, J. A. Church, C. II. Perrine, Jolm P. Thompson, Calvin K. Leinbach, Albert Morris, Geo. Albeck, William John, Morgan Logan and War ren McNinch. They are all well sun burned and look as if their onl-door life agreed Avith them. How tits Fog Afl'ects Oyster*. [Philadelphia Times. J Tito îeport having Leon circulated that tho recent foggy weather had in iured tho oysters, ä reporter asked a dealer if it were true. "The fog made them weaker, - of course," was the auswer. "There's fog when the air is warmer tlian the wat; r ; so when the oysters come out of the cold water into the warmer air it en feebles them." The man behind the counter leaned his white apron against it and shook liis erster knife for emphasis as he said, after his boss went out : "It s all very well for him to talk ; lie's interested ; but some o' them oys ters ain't got over coughin' and sn e in' yet since that muggy weather. Why, tho other night there came a party in here to eat out a bet and that big show oyster there, on top o' the pile, I thought she'd cough her shell off. One of the party said, 'It's Scotch snuff makes her cough.' but all the other oysters began coughin', too, and the party went out. The little oysters have all got the whoopin' cough and croup. They make the worst no se. There's six old onos died last night of pneumonia and—" 4 ^"Give us less guff','' said the proprie tor, who had returned. 2:30 o'clock, and was participated in by the following players: North side— Powers, I'utrens, Snyder, llays, Griggs, Wilson. D. Johnson. Hill, and Davis. South side— Lewis, Solomon. Dutesman, Canin, Her s , eI , )u . Ilson< A «. coombs, Ely. to 19 alul ,ia<l t,ie ^ amu continued to the The Day Wo C.Iobrate. The weather was exceeding pleasant, a gentle, cool, breeze relieving the usual beat. The festivités commenced in the ea ly morning by the display of fireworks ami the firing of anvils in lieu of cannon. Tile base ball match between the north ami south shies of the track commenced and Kellog. The game resulted in a victory for the North side by a score of nine to nothing; the South side players throwing up the game during the fifth innings. At the end of the fourth inning the score stood cml the spectators would have been better pleased tliun with the technical result of nine to nothing. M.ij. A. O. Lindsley umpired the game. The races were well attended, and ex cited considérable interest. The first was /'•running race, half mile dash, between Zsbek and Sorrel Dan, in which Dan won; Zebek bolting the track, throwing his rider, and making a brisk run for town pursued by a dozen or more cowboys, who soon succeeded in capturing him and bringing him baek to the grounds. He was ahead when he lclt the track. In the trotting race Star of the West was declared w inner of first money, Sam second. Sam. J. R King's horse won tho first heat in good style. The quarter mile dash, running, between Zebek an! Sorrel Dan was won by Zebek. The 4th of July ball, which was given last evening, was a decided success. A large number of the youth and bea«ty of Billings attended and enjoyed themselves in the most approved style until an early hour this morning. The Italian band fur nished the music for the occasion. The re turn of this band will doubtless be the signal for several pleasant reunions of our young people. No accidents have to be reported to mar the happiness of the day's proceedings. Altogether the celebration of the 4th in Billings was most creditable. Many ranch men and others from the country took part in the proceedings and while the usual ora tion was left out every one bad a good time and displayed their patriotism in the wav that seemed the most agreeable to them. The base ball match and horse races at tracted large crowds who took a lively interest in the results. Betting was the order of the day, though a greater number of the bets were made with a regard to the approaching political campaign. Allen Heute Advertised Letters.
