approval as dno the horses which have

" You ought to see the Crow Iudianus
come into town to see the fair," said
Mr. Morouy yesterday. "They are all
fat and prosperous and seemingly roll
nug in the we'alth of the laud. The
Crow Indiun reservation near by must
be a pince of plenty. I saw hanudsome
buggies drawn by soame of the finent
horses to be had anywhere, with big
buock Crows sitting on the seat driving.
People there told me such sights are

"The oddest thing of 11l, however,

that a Crow Indian came in the other

News comes from Big Timber to the
effect that 81m Roberts, the slayer of
Nate Young, is not particularly alarm
ed over his future fate, .alys the red
Lodge Picket, Indeedd, it is related of
hinm that his demeanor in jail gives one
the impression that he is counfident of
acquittal when his case comes up for
trial at the next term of court. The
prisoner steadtistly maintains that he
rotedl purely in self-defense when he
fired the ftual shots, and that had he
delayed a second in pulling his gun and
pressilng the triger he, and not Young,
would now he resting peacefully be.
oeath the Nod, The report is that at
the trial the defense will spring a sen
altion, showing that Young, who was
a notorious character and had served a
term in the penitentialry for partiolpat
Aug in an Idaho stage holdup years ago,
had concocted it scheme to kill Roberts,.
It is the talk that no less a person than
Dick Hicks, now deputy sheriff at
Bridget, hlas stated that he overheard a
conversation that had to do with a plot
to put Roberts out of the way, and that
he will be called as a witness in the
case.
In addition to this, the state will be
handlcapped on account of the bad
break made by its chief witness, one of
the two men who were eye witnesses to
the tragedy. Unfortunately for the
prosecution, this iudividual, in his mis
guided zeal to aid in avenging the
death of ihis friend, has given utterance
to talk that will tend to greatly dis
credit his testimony, So atxious is he
to place the uoeo around Roberts'
neck, that his testimony will be shorn
of much of the weight that it would
otherwise have. The Picket is iln a po.
itioi to state authoritatively that a
certain well known resident of Carbon
county, who happenled to be in Big
Timber on the night of the killing, will
be called as a witness for the defense to
give rebuttal testimony. This witness,
whose namei is withheld for o~vious
reasonsm, will tesltify thats the mtlte's star
witness entered ci certain salolon at Big
Timber, after the tralgedy, rnud said to
the proprietor:
"We've got tlie u-- of i b-- at last.
You want to get on that jury, If we
get the right kind of people we'll hang
himr iure."
Upon overhearirtg these rermarks, the

aiuthor of thani, mnidl," You 'lu cc witues.

H. B. Segur, general ageun of the
Burllugton, made a business visit to
Red Lodge the latter part of lest week.
C. S. Buck, head brakeman on the
Rocky Fork train, is taking a vacation
and nursing a hand which he had in
jured in Red Lodge last Wednesday
While making a coupling he had the
index finger of his hand crushed.
Assistant General Passenger Agent
Craig of the Northern Pacific passed
through the city the latter part of last
week on his way to Portland to look
after the transportation of the Thir
teenth Minnesota regiment from that
place to St. Paul.
The Burlington's tie-preserving plant
at Edgemontt S. D,, will be completed
about October 1. It will cost $40,000.
When the plant is in operation, 8,000
ties ai day will be treated by the new
process for preserving them. It is
known as the chloride of zinc process,
and is the sane as that used by the
Santa Fe railroad at Las Vegas, N. M.,
and by the Southern Pacific road in
California. The Burlington will be
the first railroad in the northwest to
take advantage of this process. The
ties are placed in a large iron cylinder,
the air is pumped out, and the ties
heated by steam; then the chemicals
are dumped in, and the ties kept in the
solution under high pressure until they
arn saturated, when they are removed,
The Burlington has a yard at Edge
mout in which 300,000 ties can be stor
ed, Before the ties are in shape to treat
they must be piled up and allowed to
sewnam for iabout sixty days.
A Great Northern branch to Lewis
town is one of the possibilities of the
near future, says the Milk River Eagle.
Indications point to the entering of the
town of Fort Benton below the bluffs
at that place. It is a difficult place to
build a railroad into and more difficult
to build out of the town. Hence it is
reasonable to suppose that the company
would rot build its main line into the
town simply to build it out again. A
line from Benton to Lewistown is the
easiest, and probably the cheapest, way
to reach the heart of the Judith coun
try. And if the Great Northern builds
into the town of Benton, the question
of a Lewistown line is advanced into
the list probabilities.

Frank Roberts resunmed his run yes.
terday morning as baggageman and ex.

after a mouth's vacation, during which
time he was relieved by G. S. Collins
of this city.
There is a porsibility, it appears,
that the fight between the railroads for
live stock business may result in a good
big benefit to Montauan stockmen, A
week ago the competition served to
bring the rate on Montana and Dakota
cauttle down to 10 cents between St.
Paul and Chicago, and now it' is said
there Is a likelihood of the rate going
still lower, Concerning the matter the
Minneapolis 'T'imes ays :
"Rate troubles are not confined to
the passeicer departments of the Chi.
oago.St. Paul lines alone, Freight
oficialls Ihve started on a lively little
race for business on range cattle. When
the cattle anovetenut from the west be.
gau a few weeks ago it was notired
that the Milwankefe seoured more than
its aunul shiire of the business, An in
vestigation followed, which resulted in
one of the lines cutting the rate on
range cattle, Minnesota Transfer to
Chicago, down to 10 cents per hundred.
"The reduction was promptly met by
the other rfhicago, Hues, including the
Milwaukte, But the out failed to ad
just matters satisfactorily, , however,
and the Milwouke continued to receive
a big share of the businessr The ru
norr wao current yesterday that the
Burlington would take a further step,
and make a n-cent rate. The figure is
ruinously low, but the Burlington
olticials are underatood to sunpect the
Milwaukee. They laium it is nut liv
