ThreeTears Work Marvelous Changes^in an Unpretentious Camp,
BELT BECOMES DIGNIFIED
Th*Town's Advancement Exoltes^the Wonder of the Moet Enthu-^slastic-A City Whose Inhabi^^tant* Are Justly Proud.
GreatFalls, Oct. 29.^The remark^^able growth of Belt during the past^three years, has excited the wonder,^astonishment and the admiration of^even the most enthusiastic western^boomer. During that comparatively^brief period the camp has leaped from^a few straggling, cheaply erected^shacks and a population of perhaps^100, to a thrifty-appearing little city^of probably 3,500 people. The cheap^log and frame shacks have been large^^ly superceded by modern buildings and^the business houses erected during the^past year are of a solid, substantial^character and would do credit to a^town four times as large.
Thecamp has a payroll aggregating^nearly $100,000 per month and an army^of men are employed In the different^Industries which have built up the^town. The coal found Is of a superior^quality and Is Improving right along,^while the coke burned Is of the best^grade and answers every purpose for^which that product is used. About 140^cars of coal and coke are shipped to^Anaconda every 24 hours and the Im^^mense freight traffic from that point^alone gives steady employment to a^large number of railroad men.
Thecamp is divided Into two towns^^Upper and Lower Belt^but the^steady growth of the little city Is^gradually connecting the two and^within a year the main thoroughfare^between Upper and Lower Belt will be^built up solidly with business houses.^What is known as Upper Belt is occu^^pied almost exclslvely by the plant of^the Anaconda Coal company. The dif^^ferent tipples, washing plant, coke^ovens and the like lend to that part^of town the appearance of a huge man^^ufacturing plant wherein a small army^of men are employed at all kinds of^labor. The company has recently^erected and Is now occupying a splen^^did business block, in which a depart^^ment store, with a mammoth assort
mentof general merchandise. Is found.^The stock embraces everything, from^a bar of soap to a bridal trousseau, or^from a paper of pins to a buffalo over^^coat, a keg of nails or a barrel of^whiskey, and a large number of clerks,^under the superlntendency of Mr.^Dudley, are kept very busy catering^to the wants of the public. There^have also been erected during the past^year nearly 100 neat and cosy cottages^for the use of employes of the com^^pany. These are Ave, six, seven and^eight-room houses, modern tn their ap^^pointments and provided with electric^lights, water and other conveniences.^The residence of P. C. Kittle, general^manager of the company, Is located^within a short distance of th* store,^In a position that commands a full^view of the entire plant, and Is a^handsome structure. The entire plant^Is lighted by electricity and a good^system of water works has been con^^structed during the last few months.^Every precaution possible against Are^has been taken and two volunteer^companies have recently been organ^^ised and are equipped with apparatus^to fight the flames should their serv^^ices be In demand. Nearly all of these^Improvements have been made under^the direction of Manager Kittle, who^has converted Upper Belt from a crud*^mining camp Into a thrifty-looking^little city during the past year.
LowerBelt contains a large number^of business houses and Is forging to^the front quite as rapidly as Its^friendly rival. Probably 200 new^buildings have been erected during the^past year and the town has extended^across the bridge, over Belt creek, and^over near the Lewis mines. John^Ca8tner's old place stands In the very^center of the town and looks as nat^^ural as It did In 1880, when the writer^camped there over night during a cold^spell In November. Mrs. Castner looks^as kindly and genial as ever and the^old log structures do service In enter^^taining the public yet.
Severalchurches have been erected^during the past year and others will^follow In the near future until every^denomination will be represented.
Thepublic schools have grown and^Improved with the town and there is^an able corps of teachers doing good^work in an educational way with^something like 500 pupils.
Theramp Is Justly proud In the pos^^session of a bright, crisp, well-edited^little newspaper^the Belt Valley^Times^which is owned by Messrs^Bemls ^ Sheridan. The former is^business manager and the'latter wields^the editorial pen. They are both hard^^working, energetic young men .and are^deserving of the splendid patronage^given the Times by the people of Belt.
Belt'sfuture is now assured. It is^the great coal camp of the West and^the nature of the Improvements being^made by the Anaconda Coal company^insures Its permanency and still more^rapid growth.

CarlJohn on Murderously Assaulted^by a Footpid,
ADEAD MAN IN THE WATER
Dan Hunter's Body Recovered-^Mike Qallagher Killed In a^belt Goal Mint-Cascade^County's Registration.
GreatFalls, Oct. 29.^Late last night^Carl Johnson, an Inoffensive, unfortu^^nate son of Norway, was knocked^senseless by a muscular foot-pad, who^has since eluded the police. Carl was^crossing a vacant lot on Second ave^^nue north and Fourth street when^some one slipped up behind him and^dealth him a terrific blow on the head,^laying the scalp open for several inch^^es. When he recovered he was lying In^the gutter covered with blood. He^groped his way to Dr. Gordon's office,^had his wound properly dressed and^then notified the police.
Accordingto his story he was walk^^ing along in the dark w hen he heard^some one running behind him. Sup^^posing the person was In a hurry, he^paid no attention to the matter until^a man reached him and as he turned^to see who It was he was assaulted^from the side. He remembers crying^^murder^ and ^police^ and that is all.^He could give no description of his^assailant and was not robbed, al^^though he possessed quite a sum of^money. He Is at a loss to know why^be was struck and could give no clue^to the police.
Toa Standard reporter Johnson said^he hai been employed at Belt for some^months and came to town Tuesday.^He had left his wife in Belt on ac^^count of family troubles In which a^gallant Scandinavian named ole Shey^had been an important factor. The^latter was employed In mine No. 2^and boarded with Johnson's family.^The two men had quarreled over Die's^attention to Mrs. Johnson and the lat^^ter also resented her hubby's Interfer^^ence. Two weeks ago she came to^Great Falls and instituted suit for di^^vorce, alleging non-support on the pnrt^of Johnson. Since that time Carl had^become convinced that his wife pre^^ferred Ole and had settled up his af^^fairs and come to Great Kalis with a^view of going to Anaconda in search^of employment, leaving his wife and^Ole occupying the same house. He^had formally notified them that he^would not contest the divorce and had^given the two his blessing, together^with his furniture. He thought per^^haps Shey had followed him to town^and assaulted him for turning over his^home and wife without more of a f^ro-^test. Johnson took the train to-day^for Anaconda and the police ar^ on^the still hunt for his cowardly assail^^ant.
Thebadly decomposed body of a^man was found floating In Sun river
SheriffDwyer was notified and In^company with Coroner Weltman drove^out. rescued the body and brought it^in town this evening. A watch and^charm found in the pocket of th.' tloat-^er led to Its Identity as the body of^Dan Hunter, a shoemaker of this ettjr^who disappeared rather mysteriously^two weeks ago. Previous to his dis^^appearance Hunter had been dis^^heartened for some time over family^troubles. His wife had left him and^one of his daughters was recently sent^to the reform school. He sought solace^In the flowing bowl and was on the^verge of delirium when he locked up^his shop and disappeared. It Is sup^^posed that he wandered up along Sun^river and In a moment of desperation^ended hJs career by a leap In the^treacherous waters of the dangerous^stream.
Aletter from Dr. Ferguson locates^that gentleman In London. England,^where he Is enjoying good health and^attending a session at University Col-^lege hospital. Kings college and the^Royal College of Surgeons. After com^^pleting his course he will visit Paris^and return home next spring.
MikeGallagher, a miner employed^at Belt, was crushed to death last^night by the caving in of a large body^of coal In one of the rooms in mine^No. 1 The body was ulckly recovered,^but death was probably Instantaneous.^A coroner's Jury was summoned and^brought in a verdict In accordance^with the above facts. The remains^were brought to this city and funeral^services were held at the Catholic^rhurch this afternoon, a lar^e number^of Belt miners being present. Inter^^ment occurred In the Catholic ceme^^tery.

1'reltyThings In silver.
Fromthe New York Tribune.
Theshapes in artistic silverware^were never more attractive than now.^Tall, slender pitchers Of classic con^^tour, old English loving-cups In mas^^sive form and various historic shapes^are now chosen to hold roses or other^cut flowers for the table or for the^decoration of the house.
Thereare many dainty design In^eompotlers. Some of those In low^Queen Anno shapes have a wide bor^^der In lace or old pierced silver. Tie re^are also some high Dutch shapes mod^^el.si after the queer little boats of old-^fashioned Holland fishermen. The^pretty little bonbon dishes that are^quite flat on the table often are a^mass of pierced work. A feature of^all the new silver Is Its gold lining-.^Such metal Is much easier taken care
ofthan plain silverware, because It^does not become so easily tarnished.^There are a great many pieces intend^^ed for the toilet table and for fanci^^ful tableware that are gilded all over,^until they look like pieces of solid^gold. The tiny little figurines of^French enamel for mantle display are^often mounted in gilded silver and^sometimes In 18-carat gold.
COsapottenIn sllver-gllt are shown^in the severe classic shape of George^Ill 's reign and in the familiar Queen^Anne shapes. In plain silver they are^$35 and upward; gilded all over they^begin In price at $45. Bonbon dishes of^solid silver in simple Queen Anne^shapes are $7 50 upward; in quaint^Dutch silver they are $9; and In the^ornate Russian silver, wrought with^colored enamels, or niello work, they^begin in price at $35.
Itis welcome Intelligence to house^^keepers that plain silverware Is lower^in price to-day than it ever was be^^fore In the last 12 months It has fall^^en fully 25 per cent. The very best^makers of silver are selling solid silver^teaspoons of ordinary weight as low^as $10 a doien. Silver tablespoons be^^gin In price at $27. and table-knives of^solid sliver at $30 and table-forks at^$18.
Aquaint piece of silver which Is^generally acceptable as a Christmas^present, because It Is not likely to be^duplicated. Is a picturesque little tea^caddy of old Dutch pattern. It will^cost from $12 to $35. according to the^weight and pattern. In Russian sil^^ver. Inlaid with lines In niello work,^it will cost $50, and In an elaborate^pattern of colored Russian enamels,^copied from mediaeval Kremlin silver.^It will cost $85. Where my lady ^pours^tea^ frequently, she will appreciate a^nest of three caddies, one of Dutch sil^^ver, one of old Knglish silver and one^In gray mediaeval Russian enamel.^They should be as nearly as possible of^the same size.
AnImportant Improvement In the busi^^ness history of Warren, r. L, was the^starting up of the new 1s00 horse-power^engine last week. There are 75.000 *pln-^(lles.
