" I will listen to any one's convictions, but pray keep your doubts to yourself, I have plenty of my own."— Goethe. Luck is a good thing, but one cannot al ways afford to wait for it. Pluck is a better thing, because it is always ready to begin. Show us aman who has net a good opinion of himself, and we will show you a man who has no show at all in this world.— Hacken sack Republican, It is estimated by a Boston doctor that Dio Lewis, theories have caused the death of at least 5,000 people, and yet he has thus far kept out ef jail. We must enact a law that, after a certain date—say 1900—no man shall vote who can not read and write, whether he is white or black.— Rev. Joseph Cook. They now say of a liar : « He can tire out a fact quicker than any newspaper dlriter living, by the simple process of harnessing it up to his imagination.'' The late Mrs. Sarah J. Hale wrote " Mary Had a Little Lamb," for the amusement of her children. It is likely to remain as en during as any of her efforts. A young man in Nebraska sent on an offer of marriage to a girl in Iowa whom he fan cied, and in reply received this telegram : " Come on with your minister." The Congressman who in Washington is only one bean in a barrel and doesn't amount to anything, was a whole barrel of beans in his village at home.— N. T. Herald. Men and women receive in this world much of what they deserve. It is like a look ing-glass—this big world. Grin and smile to it and it will smile back; scowl and it frowns. The flea, says the Boston Transcript, is the politician ot the insect world. He is ever itching for a place, creates no end of disturb ance, and you never know where to find him. Mr. Archibald Forbes, the well-known English correspondent, has started for the scene of the Zulu war, under a larger salary, it is said, lhau any journalist has ever re ceived. Many a timid child [ 'nones bis first at tempt at walking simply because he lacks the courage to exercise an ability which he fully possesses; and many a man lets a noble scheme and grand enterprise fail to the ground from the same cause. When Aristarichi Bey gave a dinner in Washington the other day to Mme. Bakhme teff—formerly Miss Beale—he met his chief guest at the door, Mahommedan fashion, witli a plate ou which lay bread and salt, which the fair dame proceeded to taste. " I am not," wrote Ralph Waldo Emerson the other day, " in a condition to make visits or to take any part in conversation. Old age lias rushed upon me in the last year and tied my tongue, and hid ray memory, and thus made it a duty to stay at home." The Louisville Age gives this chronicle of the bench in Kentucky : "JuJge Riddle, a few years back, had a bottle thrown at his head while on the bench. Judge Wicklifie found it necessary to shield himself behind bis desk iu court to escape stray pistol balls. Judge Randall had to abandon court and leave the town of Jackson very expeditiously. And the County Judge of Breathitt county was kilted." The negro " exodus " is not the only one taking place in this country. A correspond ent of the Chicago Tribune writes from St. Albans that every southern-bound train from Canada is loaded with emigrants to the United States. Entire families, ot all ages, and many of them of an advanced intellec tual class, are among the number. Nothing like it was ever known among the Canadians before. Their route is over the New York Ceutral to Buffalo, thence to Kansas and Nebraska. A few go to the workshops of New England. The Canada papers are pre serving an unbroken silence on the subject.— Courier-Journal. Ohio Democratic State Coavcntioa. Columbus, June 4. — The Democratic State Convention assembled at 10 o'clock. Gen. James Stedmau, of Toledo, was chosen tem porary chairman. In taking the chair, Sted mau made a ringing five minutes' speech, the point of which was that the time had come ; when the Democratic party should insist upon \ claiming a full share in the honors of the ; late war, for it was largely due to Democratic ; soldiers I hut the Union was saved. After the selection of committees a recess was taken j until 2 o'clock. The Convention reassembled at 2 o'clock, and Samuel F. Hunt, of Cincinnatti, was chosen permanent chairman. At 3:30 o'clock the Convention proceeded to ballot for Governor, Rice, Bishop and Ewing being the candidates. First Ballot—Bishop, 207 ; Rice, 257; Ew ! ing. 160. I Second Hal lut —Rice, 252; Ewing, 218; ' Bishop, 152. ! Ew ing was nominated on the third ballot. Lawrence A. Brown In Balt Lake Tribune. The Mines—The accent from Silver Bow creek to Walker Brothers' property, a dis tance ef one and a half miles through Butte City, is so gentle—about 600 feet elevation— that one can drive a buggy over it and visit any mining claim within the district. In the mineral region there is no timber, save on the extreme northeast part. Walker Brothers' property is situated on the extreme top (not a ridge nor a gulch) of the ascent from Silver Bow creek, facing with the slope of the as cent full to the south—Silver Bow creek sweeping around the town of Butte to the east and running around to the east of Walk er Brothers' about one mile. On the east side of the creek, about one or two miles, rises a high range of mountains, stretching away both north and south out of view, and probably 2,000 feet above the city of Butte and 1,500 feet above the Rainbow lead—at Walk er Brothers. This ascent from Silver Bow creek to Walker Brothers' property is ent by half a dozen or more gulches running down the ascent to the creek and across fifteen or twenty well defined quartz leads, varying from eight to ten feet in width, and running a few degrees east of north and correspond ingly west of south. These gulches are filled with placer diggings, and the gold has been carried down them and poured into this creek, creating the rich placers of that stream ,The gold evidently came from those leads or lodes. Some of these gulches pass through the city of Butte. Draw a line from Walker Brothers' property south through the city of Butte to this creek, a distance ot a mile and a half, and one will probably traverse about the center line of one of the richest mineral regions yet discovered outside of the Corn stock. On the east side of this line the gold and silver belt is about half a mile wide, After this copper takes the place of the for mer, and when the leads reach Silver Bow creek, going east about a mile further on, they sink, and so far, have not been discov ered in the high range east heretofore spo ken of. Near the east end of this copper belt, C. T Meader, formerly of Salt Lake, is working some very fine copper leads, assaying thirty to forty pel cent, copper, and about 30 ozs. of silver. # On the west side of the above named axis line the leads extend lor about one mile, car rying gold and silver; these leads bluff up against a prophyry dyke cutting the min eral belt entirely in two. It runs nearly par allel with this axis line. The north side of the district disappears in this dyke, the south side reappears after an absence of several hundred yards in width and forms another belt of rich veins. A new mining district called Independence, is about three miles from Butte west—Sum mit district, is the one iu which Bulte is situ ated—this dyke forms a butte about oue mile west of the city, hence the name "Butte City." Butte City—I am glad that I. have come here. In a few years this camp will be a city, and he who stays here must do well in the end. Butte City contains about 3,500 per sons, well learned aud a good class of people. I do not think we want any more population just yet. What we need is a few more Walker Brothers, who will put machinery and sink as they are doing on their leads. Except them, all the ores being worked come from about and above water level. This is going to make progress rather slow. If their 500-foot level hits it all right, then many oth er mine owners and holders will put up the proper machinery, and then things will 1 bile' sure. It takes freight about a month from Salt Lake City here, twenty to twenty-five days front the terminus. A man here must be up early and late. The whole country for 100 miles in all directions contains much mineral that will pay for working, and as the railroad comes nearer of course the chances of profit increase. This is a new country, and far away from the centres of trade and commerce, but. when once reached by rail, it will go up sure. All my notions in this respect are more than realized. Death ef General Shields. Ottumwa, (la.) Juue 2. —General James liehU, late died suddenly in this city at 10:30 last even ShieltU, late U. S. Seualor from Missouri, I suddenly ii ing. On Sabbath day he had appeared In tiis usual health, ate a hearty supper at six and wrote several letters, but just before retiring complained of a paitt iu the chest, and soon thereafter said to his niece that he was dying, and iu thirty minutes expired sitting in his chair, remaining conscious u> the last. He lectured in this city on Wednesday evening last, and had remained lien- visiting relatives. His remains leave here for his hotue in Car rollton, Mo., this evening. Proposition for Keeping Convict*. Governor Potts, during his recent trip East, visited Lincoln, Nebraska^ ami iu conversa satinu with Governor Ya.ice, of that. Stale, learned that the convicts from the Territor ies of Wyoming ami New Mexico were ran lined the Nebraska penitentiary at forty rents >er day per capita, while Montana pays the United States oue dollar ]>er day pet capita for keeping tier convicts. At the suggestion of Governor Potts, a propositi. m lia* been made by the officials of the Nebraska penile:. tiarv to this Territory to confine and safely keep all the convicts sentenced at Lite above rate. The acceptance of this proposition will require legislation outlie subject, and will neeessilale an extra session of the legislature. — Independent. DEER LODGE ITEMS. New North-West, sth. School closes to-day until September 1st. O'Connor's saw-mi 11 will bo moved to Cottonwood creek about July 1st. Mr. R. C. Knox has deferred construction of the Doer Lodge bridge until the water falls, which will probably be about July 1st At the district election on Saturday last to determine whether the school tax should be levied on District No. 1 to repair the bell tower, plastering, fence and to paint the house, the tax was carried ten to one. THE TERRITORY. Capt. Fuller reports a large increase in the internal revenue receipts. The collections for the fiscal year will reach 830,000.—$4,000 in excess ot 1878. Montana thus takes the third position in the list of Territories, as shown by the revenue receipts—Utah and Dakota leading off.— Herald. There were twelve head of thoroughbred cattle on the steamer " Montana," for Dan Floweree__ lb. Melvin York, deserter, who stole $120 in money, a gold watch, horse, saddle, etc., from H. H. Clark, an account of which was pub lished yesterday, to-day was brought before judge Hedges. He plead guilty, was placed under $2,000 bail, $1,000 each complaint—to appear before the Grand Jury in November. In default of bail he was given quarters in the county boarding house.—J6. DOMESTIC NEWS Washington, June 3__The President to day sent to the Senate the following: "I nominate Geo Ms*McCreary, of Iowa, to be Judge or the Eighth U. S. Judicial Circuit, in place of John F. Dillon, resigned; the resignation to take effect on the first day ot September, 1879, and this nomination is to be for the vacancy thus created." The nomination of McCrary as Dillon's successor was laid oefore the Senate and re ferred in the usual course to the Judiciary Committee. Chicago, May 31—The Journal's Wash ington special says that definite information from General Grant's party is to the effect that he will take the last steamer in June from Japan, which will bring him to San Francisco not far from the first of August. After looking areund California, the General has decided to spend some time iu Oregon, and the various poets in that region, where he was stationed in his earlier days. As has been already reported, he is also very desir ous of making an extended tour in Mexico. San Francisco, June 2.—The steamer China sailed to-day for Hong Koug, via Yo kohama. Among the passengers were seven teen Chinese lepers, who have been inmates of the county pest house for several months. They are now shipped to China by order of the supervisors.

Omaha, Juue 4. — The Ponca habeas cor pus case came tip before the United States Judge Samuel F. Miller on appeal, but the Indians having been discharged without bond for their appearance, Judge Miller refused to hear the case. The district attorney thought he might remedy the detect, and requested it be continued, which was done. Leading lawyers say this ends the case, and Judge Dundy's decision stands as law. New York, June 4.—Ex-Attorney General Williams is in tow n,and was interviewed yes terday. He wants Grant renoiuiuated, but will support almost anybody. In reply to the question whether he would go to San Francisco to meet Grant, he said : " No, 1 am not going, and do not think Grant's friends are the ones principally interested in organ izing this excursion. If it is intended for po litical effect, it is certainly very injudicious. 1 should think that the purpose of the excur sion was to put money iu the pockets of those organizing it." Washington, June 5.—The President sent a message to Congress to-day transmit ting the proceedings and report of the board of officers on the Fits John Porter case for infonnatiou of Congress, and for their action, lie having no power in the absence of legis lation to act upon the recommendation of the report. A New Li gilt. New York. May 29—Alfred U. Holcombe yesterday received notice from the Patent Of fice that application had been allowed for Ida Invention. It is asserted that he has solved the problem of divisibility of the electric eunent for ordinary lighting purposes. Mi nute caudles of lampblack are used instead, of the ordinary carbon pencils. The invent j ol clsi'ns lhat with the less expensive form of i carbon lampblack used in ihemanufoctnre of j Lis points it would be possible»» light a par i lor at from one-fiflh to one-^gbth the cost of gas for the same purpose, lie has recently . produced carbon that lasted fifty bouts, and | lias thus far nearly dispensed with the trouble of renewal found to lie so formidable in the JoblockkofT light. Experts speak of the iu ! vention with the highest enthusiasm. It will soot: be exhibited publicly.
