F to in the Benton Record we learn that the
engineering |/*rly of the Canada Pacific rail
way. which was sent out by the syndicate
that has the Building of the road in charge,
arrived in Benton on the steamer Helena.
The party consists of forty men, twenty of
wbmn are engineers. The Record says g The
■party was organized iu Winnipeg, anil is un
der the control of Mr. P. D. Hindman. T he
parly will remain here about a week, making
preparations for tln ir trip, hinting help, etc.
They expect to be gone abont eighteen
mouths, praeedding from here to Fort Mac
l«od, thence to Calgacry- From Calgarry the
party will work west to Vermillion Bass,
where it will unite with that of Engineer
Rogers, and together the party will connect
their work with that of the Pacific coast

Cob Hedge, engineer in c'isrgç .-,f th«

the irigbest elevation in the pass was 700
feet above (Butte, or 0,300 fees above eea level.
The approach from tile east is good, but on
tins side it is too abrupt to be feasible. Mr.
Keith, with a corps of engineers, is now in
the Jefferson canon, surveying this way, in
tending to go through the Pipestone pass.
This route offers advantages that, none others
possess,«,nd will probably he the one select
ed. We think that there cae be no doubt
that the road will come through Butte, as the
Northern Pacific cannot afford to let tlie im
mense outgoing and incoming freight busi
ness be eionopoiteed by the Utah A North
ern. it is undoubtedly true that Butte's
freight traffic now is, and always will be,
much greater khan that of Helena. With
the mines already developed, and the im
mense number more that soon will be, the
outgoing freight consisting of ore and matte
will be «f such importance that tlie N. P.
cannot and will not let it slip from their
hands. Butte is as sure of the North»
Pacifie as it is of its narrow-gauge rivai.
Another Jail Delivery.
Yreste.iV.ay we published a correspondence
between a Miles City official and the no
torious --.Skinny" Waterhouse, who was con
fined in tile Choteau county jail on a charge
of highway robbery. From the following,
condensed from tho f'eiiton Regard, it will
be seen that "Skinny" is not to be "sinched"
after all :
"When the door of the jail was opened
this morning, "Skinny" Wa'crhonse, the
highwayman, who was left last night at a
late hour securely shackled in his cell, was
f,mud to have escaped. An examination of
the premises showed that, he had, with brace,
bits, amt a small saw, cut out a section about
eight inches by fourteen from one of tbe logs
in tbe rear of tho jail and had crawled
through this hole to his freedom. Tracks of
two men were to be seen in the mud outside,
ami the print of a horse's tuet showed clearly
the means he had of getting away when once
outside. The tools were passed into Water
house through a small hole fur the purpose
of ventilation, near the roof of the jail, lire
County Commissioners had discontinued the
guard at the jail ever since Carey and Hanna
were taken to Deer Lodge .I Tbe bringing of
Waterhouse to jail here has cost tlie county a
great deal ot money, am! Deputy .Sheriff
Talbert, in going for him to Wotf Point, and
in bringing him here, encountered all the
hardships of a tedious and dangerous trip
overland in the dead of winter. There is no
real economy in letting a dangerous nmtetac
tor escape from jail after he has been caged
with the utmost difficulty. Our Commis
sioners are penny wise and p—i .J foolish in
this matter ol a guard."

The Benton Record of the 24th fest, has
the following: "Tom O'Hanlon says the
traditional aversion to manual labor is fast
disappearing among 1 tie Indians on NI iIk
river about, Belknap., Under Major Lincoln's j
wise management it lias coma about that the I
bucks are now willing to do all kinds of |
labor at the agency without feeling that they
aie making squaws of themselves. A great,
change in this respect is noticeaole in the last
few years. Major Lincoln has had between
150 and 200 acres of land ploughed up, aud
the Indians have planted it in corn and pota
toes, each Indian who may wish it being
allotted a certain number of rows, from
which lie takes tbe products. They have
taken hold of their farming venture with
much interest, and can be seen industriously
at work all times of day, spading and hoeing.
Squaw labor is discouraged. Agriculture is
last growing in popularity among tbe Indians,
now that they have tested its merits as
against those of their former methods of
getting a livelihood.
Escape of Elisha Reed.
Under the above caption the NewJSorth
if es« gives an account of the escape of the
murderer of Eugene Garland. It, seems that,
on last Thursday morning Jailer Lytle left
the jail to do an errand in town, leaving Reed
in jail, closing the door, and, as he thought,
lucking it. lie returned to find the bird
flown. Mr. Lytle now thinks that he omitted
to turn the key in the lock, and that all Reed
bad to do was to help himself to liberty. As
soon as it was known that tie had escaped,
Sheriff St rang sent men in pursuit, anil evety
effort was made to head him off. The stream
passing near the jail is heavily lined with
willows, and this ollered.bin» ample means of
m iking an unobserved flight ro tho river ox
No trace of him could be found until Sun
day morning, when Dr. Mitchell brought
»void to Deer Lodge that he kail been seen
Friday night by railroad men near the mouth
of Gold Creek. The account, as given by
ti e JSorth-Weet, is as follows :
" On last Friday evening, Just, at dark, the
N. P. surveyors were camped near the mouth
of Gold,Creek On the south side, near the old
village. The lights were extinguished in all
but the engineers tent. One of the party,
however, was standing some distance from
the tent and observed a man running our, from
the point toward the tent. As lie approached
he slackened his pace to a walk. When with
in a tew yards of tho tent be dropped on the
ground what afterwards proved to be a willow
club a couple of feet long, advanced a few
stops, returned and picked up the club and
advanced to the tent. Throwing the flaps of
the tent open with both bands he said 'Good
evening ' to the person inside, and inquired
if he cotikl get employment. He was told
J the «"gmeer corps did not require any more
hel P* ljut the grading parties might.
" Just then the person who had been standing
outside approached and acroste.1 him. He
dropped the tent flaps suddenly and turned
around. He asked for something to eat, say
ing 'tie was as hungry as a son of a gun.'
He inquired the whereabouts of Bailey's
bridge, and being given three biscuits, started
off. The next morning a curl of faint suioke
was seen issuing from one of the oi l Gold
Creek cabins, and examination showed it had
been occupied during at least a portion of
the night, a small tire having been made and
a couple of boards laid near it on which a
man could have laid. Some of the ends of
the board were stiil burning. The traveler
bad piobably staid there until the moon
As to Mr. Lytle's carelessness, no com
ments are necessary as he undoubtedly feels
il more than any one else. It Is to be hoped
that Heed will lie captured, but the probabli
*w is that it« w fi i never again be seen by the
Deer Lodge officials.

Minin;/ Journal.
A reporter of the Miner yesterday inter
viewed Mr. C. M. Courtwrigllt, thu gentle
manly postmaster at Basin City, and elicited
tbe following information regarding some
of the mines iu tbe vicinity of Basin :
The Boulder mine, owned principally by
gentlemen living in Logansport, Indiana, is
now lookttig better than ever before. The
moire the mine is developed, and the further
th,- shaft is sunk, tlie better everything looks;
tiie vein being wider and the ore richer, iu
addition to the ten stamps now in operation,
twenty aie to be soon put in, and with the new
mill the silver can be saved. The main
shaft is down to a depth of 150 fit, and it is
inteoded to extend it, 350 feet further. The
mine is situated about one and a half miles
northwest of Basin, and is about, 2,000 feet
above that place. This »vill doubtless prove to
be one of tbe biggest things lathe Tu'ritnry.

Y r our correspondent finding much of local
arid general interest transpiring in the princi
pal camp ot Beaverhead County, is impelled to
indite a few paragraphs on passing events for
tlie Miner. The mistaken impression that
this camp is played out will soon he corrected.
The furnaces of the Hecia Company (one
stack) is turning out six tons of base b'i'lion
per day. This bullion is worth $300 per ton.
Inside of two weeks tbe furnaces will be
running both stacks, w ith a daily product of
12 tons, which will bave a per diem value of
$3,(ili0. Tlie value of tbe bullion will be
largely augmented as soon as the ore teams
beain to deliver oi'e at the furnace, which Is
now employed almost wholly on second class
ore. When first class ore is reduced the bul
lion ruus up to $600 per ton. Superintend
ent Koippenberg is managing t'ne affairs of
tlie company iu excellent shape, and it is the
intention to employ 300 men iu the mine this
summer. Miners are in great demai d here
and one hundred and fifty men could readily
obtain employment in this camp;

The main shaft is rapidly going down,
having reached a depth ol 338 feet. Tue cross
cut on tlie 200 foot level is now in 05 feet,
and the 300 foot cross-cut is run in 45 feet.
Forly miners are employed,' with Patrick
Clark as foreman, besides a force of sixteen
men around the buildings, consisting of en
gineers, carpenters and blacksmiths. Daniel
G. Holman, tbe head engineer, is just putting

Fifty-six men and ten teams are working
on the mili-grade under the direction of
Samuel II- Stuart, and the grading will be
completed in a few days.
Mr. C. C. Thurston is pushing the stone
work for the new mill rapidly with a force of
sixteen men and six tea ms.
l'he masonry is done iu a solid and sub«
stantial manner, reflecting great credit on the
The biick work will be commenced in
about seven days. There are twenty mill
wrights atwoik I ram ing Umbel's and they
have nearly one half of the material ready for
the erection of the main building. The whole
mill construction is unfer the personal super
vision ot Mr. Posse.
The grading for the water-ditcli, which will
be four and a quarter miles long, is already
w ell under way, ami over 100 rods of it being
ready for the flume to he laid which is being
made of substantial planks. Twenty-five men
are employed by the company blasting tbe
immense boulders and removing timber,
under the direction of A. H- Mallory.
Everything, at the Alice is much as usual,
work progressing in all the levels, and rich
ore being daily extracted. YVbile all of the
levels are looking splendidly, tbe 700-foot lev
el is particularly promising. We were shown
a specimen by Mr. Hall, taken from that
level, that will assay hi tbe thousands, and
tlie. are now in very rich ore. About 85
tons of ore are put through the mills daily,
t lieront put of the Alice being between 75 and
SO tons, and the remainder coming from the
Magi'a Charta.
At the Lexington the three compartment
shaft is now being sunk at the rate of about
eighteen inches per day, goiug through very
compact granite. The water is .under easy
control, and is causing no trouble. Since
sinking was resumed about, eight feer has
heeti added to the depth of the shaft, it now
being dow n 130 feet. The present intention
is to go 300 feel before running a level.
At the Magna Charta an experiment is
soon to be tried in the shape of a Howie nd
Pulverizer, it will be a new thing m this
territory and its workings will be closely
wa'cist'll. The one to be put in at this mine
is to be of a capacity equal to a 20-stamp
mill. It will probably be at work within six
weeks. In the mine everything seems to im
prove. and splendid ore is being taken out.
About a week ago sinking on the two com
partment shaft of the Amy-Silversmitb was
commenced, and they are now down 30 teet,
making about four feet a day. They intend
to sink 300 feet as rapidly as possible, and
then run a cross-cut at mat depth through
the main ledge. Both compartments are for
