citation of the Dillon o y _ A gentleman of this city who is wall ^uainted with the poUUee of Baever ^ county received yesterday by mail the following papers, which to a certain «fient explain thnml m Tlw first waea circular h eaded "Mam Heeling, M end leadingaa follows: *• a Maes Meeting of the tax-payen gd voters of Beaverhead eounty will be ^ at the Court Home In Dillon on Holiday, June 5th, 1882, for the purpose el considering and protecting against the proposition of oobmitting the ques tion of the removal of the County Beat fpjux Dillon to Glendale, to the voters of the county at the next general elec tion " Tax-layers of Beaverhead eounty vho are opposed to Increasing the bur (leu of taxation, are earnestly requested to attend the meeting. Dillon, May 31st, 1882." This poster was evidently in use In Dillon ye*terday, as it bears that date. The second paper was the printed cap tioa of a petition in the nature of a re monstrance to the County Commission er* of Beaverhead eounty, by "the un designed citizens, tax-payers and voters of Beaverhead eounty, mlndlul of our duty as conservators of economy and as protector* of the prosperity of Beaver brad county, would respectfully, unit edly and earnestly remonstrate against M y proposed change or removal of the County Beat at the present time ; and you id particularly remonstrate against the Honorable Board of Commissionen Bering the submission of the question ef the removal of the County Seat from Dillon to Glendale at the ensuing gen ml elect ion to be held next November, for tue reasons herewith submitted : First. Buch removal would be in op position to the interests of the majority of the people and tax-payen of Beaver head county. Second. The location of the eounty mtai the present time is at a place eadly accessible to people of the entire minty of Beaverhead. Third. That it would be detrimental Is the interests of the people srd tax payers of the county to incur the ex po se of removing the eounty seat at a tine when the eounty ie burdened with a debt of $37,000,000. Fourth. That Dillon—by re as on of iiesoy sceem to the line of the Utah A Northern Railway «passing through the wlleys of the Red Rock, Beaverhead asd Big Hole—is the most suitable place hr the eounty seat until a change of papulation, of a settled cha r acter, dé modas division of the county. Fifth. That the town of Glendale, dlmie near the Northern limits of the eassty, and depending on the opera tions of a single mining company for ib life from mouth to mouth and for Its hlsie existence, Is not a proper place to amove our county seat to. Sixth. For these r easo ns , with others of as equally weighty and economic character, your remooMratore would re apeetftilly, firmly and unitedly ismon dnte against the Honorable Board of Ooaunimionets of Beaverhead county eossty taking any cognizance of, or ac tion on, the petition praying for the or dering or submitting of the question of w aoi a l of the eounty seat from Dillon it Glendale at the next general election, wat any other general election. And your remonstrators will ever raraestly and reapeetfolly remonstrate wherein set forth." The person who mailed these incendi ary documents is probably a politician. That he is what is termed a "schemer, » h apparent from the indorsement on the prikion, which is as follows: "The Fight of the Hecla Consolidated Mln hgCo. against the Utah A Northern foUway, hacked by the people of Bear wrhead County.

A NEW RAILWAY. Illustrating Western Oonstruorion. The opening of a trans continental line from Puget Bound to the great lakes by the Northern Paci*o Company has familiarised the mining men of the northwest with the availability of rail way facilities. The Southern Pacifie owes its existence as much to the rich mineral deposits of Arizona and Mexi co, in the southwest, as to any other cause. The Oregon Short Line, from Granger on the U. P. road to ^ker City, Oregon, where it connects with Portland by the Oregon R. * N. Ce's. lines is largely designed to open up the rieh mineral deposits of Wyoming and Idaho. Railway building in the west, in view of the gréât distances and alti tudes which are to be overcome, must of necessity depend more or less on the val ue of the mineral depueita in the country through which the line is projected. All this being the cs s c .s n d the Oregon Short Line being part of the Union Pacific system, the Central and Northern Pa cific companies have, it would seem, resolved to h:»ve their sbareof the profits on Wood River ores. The Bellevue News says : "The Central Pacifie folks are much like the old *406». They are used to doing their work, charging their price and getting their pay without a grumble. They cannot compromise with Eastern railroad companies in freight and passenger traffic, because the five-centers will build through to the Pacific, and then get their raten down to suit their own idea of business. As a consequence, it is only a matter of a few months when the C. P. will join hands with the Northern Pacific and thus get a good route (fortradff through to tho East, and they will run due to the Wood River foothills—probably into Bellevue, and pomlbly over the route we recently marked out, viz: to Saw tooth, Valley creek, Cape Horn, near Lewiston, etc., to intersect the North ern Pacifie nearly north of this great and rich region." CHANGE OF TOOL New Bohadjnla on «hu U. AN. Rond. This merning the new schedule time went Into effect on tho Utah and North ern Railway. The south-hound passen ger train left the Butte depot at six o'clock this morning, and la due a« Ogden to-morrow morning at eight fifty-five. The north-bound tram that left Ogden last night at seven o'clock will arrive here this evening at eight thirty-five. This is a saving of nearly two hours between Butte and Ogden. Judge Riven' decision In tbs Rtah mond-Albien case, declared the St George potent void, and the Victoria patent valid, and was based upon the decision of the United States Supreme Court in the Riehmood-Eurska esse. The Chief Justice of the Sate of Nevada has fixed the sppeal bond at 94*5*550. if it is to act as a supersedes!, and the Albion Company has commenced salt against the Richmond Company for 1560,000.

Mr. 1 '• • a ^r~r at Wrftorrtlte, in New The principal copper and sapper silver properties of this comp are the Colusa, the Formt tbs Bail, ths Bhakspeare Parrot, the Gagnon, the Original Butte, the Mountain Consolidated, the Aae eonda, the St Lawrence, the Liquidator and the Modoc. There am, of course, many others, since the copper wealth of Batte is for more vad than even its own eil Isons suppose, os intelligent develop ment and the investment of capital will prova It is the opinion of morn best informed that within five years Butte will command a reputation second to ■one In the world for the production of oopper. The chief mines above mentioned seem all to lie on' three parallel belts, running cast and west. The farthest west is the Original Butte, the farthest east tue Colusa, these lying about two miles apart. The Original Butte, Gagnon, Original, ^Parrot, Bhakspeare, Anaconda amt St. 'Lawrence are situated on the south belt, the Mountain Consolidated on the cen tral belt, while the Modoc, Bell, Liqui dator and Colusa lie on the northerly belt. Copper mining in Butte is in reality yet in its infancy, since none of these mines are developed to the depth of four hundred feet. Although this is the cose, the results already obtained have attracted great attention in the East and in all -copper markets, the yearly output of this metal being now not less than ten thousand tons. The greatest produce» at present aie the Colusa, the Parrot, the Bell and the Liquidator, most of the remainder not being worked for production now, but simply being in process of development A scarcity of reduction works, which will soon be remedied, lias heretofore rendered it necessary to leave unex tracted the large bodies of rich copper oiealready opened np. Each one of the mines mentioned could easily support its own smelter, whereas there are in reality only four smelters in the camp, the Montana, the Parrot, the Bell and the Colorado. The first three are supplied by ore from the three mines Ant mentioned above, and experts say there is no doubt that these mines could easily run smeltere of twice the capacity of those at present in op eration. The avenge of tbe*e smeltere now is not greater than fifty tons per dqy. nr THE RING. tour Welk.
