I hereby announce myself as Independent candidate for Delegate to Congress. SAMPLE ORR. as a Emtera Montan» Newa. [Avant Couriër, Oct. 3.] Quite a serious and painful accident oc curred at Fort Ellis on Monday last, by which Wm. Heffner, who is operating the government saw mill at the Fort, lost part of three fingers of his right hand. The driver of the Helena coach, Mr. Geo. McCullum, met with a serious accident Sat urday evening, at Cockerill's stage station. He was lifting a heavy iron, when in some way it slipped through his hunds and fell on one of his feet, bruising It badly and break ing several toes. onunately Dr. S. L. Clark, the new physician for the Crow Agency, was on the coach, and dressed his foot at once. Mr. McCullum has suffered severely. His coach was taken out Monday by Dave Boerum. We learn that on Thursday last an alterca tion took place between-R. 8. Hamilton and Alfred Cooper, at the ranch of the former on Bast Gallatin, which terminated in the firing of a revolver by Hamilton« the shot pass in g through Cooper's clothing and making a "close call" for his life. We have been on able to obtain well authenticated particulars of the affray, but we are informed that Ml H. waa placed tinder arrest, had a prelimina ry examination, and gave bonds in the sum of $700 to appear at the next term of the District court.. Situai Ball Reparte* Wewade*. Bismarck, October 2.—A Teton Indian just arrived from Bitting Bull's camp at Pop lar River Indian Agency, stateè that Sitting Bull was severely wounded in a quarrel with some of his chiefs. x INTERFERING WITH THE UTAH A* NORTHERN ROAD. Upon information received a few days since the Herald stated that notices signed by the Fort Hall Indian Agent had been posted at Oneida, forbidding the erection of buildings at or north of Black Rock stage station, on the completed line of the Utah & Northern railroad. The road has alreaky advanced to nearly the center of the reserva tion, and the purpose of the builders has been to place this fall the northern terminus at or near Blackfoot, forty or more miles further on. It appears from a dispatch which we print to-day that the subject of extending the road across the reservation has been considered in a Cabinet meeting and that permission to proceed with the work has been refused unless the sanction of the In dians is first obtained. Mr. Dillon claims, and we think rightly, that the charter of the road gives it the right of way through the reservation without the consent of the In dians. The law, enacted at the last session of Congress, reads as follows : Be it enacted , etc., That the right of way through the public lands of the United States and other privileges heretofore granted by law to the Utah Northern Railroad Com pany are hereby modified and re-granted so as to enable the Utah & Northern Railroad company and its assigns to build their road by the way of Marsh valley, Portneuf River and Snake River valleys, instead of|by the way of Soda Springs and Snake River valley, as originally intended. Sko. 2. And said company is hereby made a corporation in the Territories of Utah, Ida ho and Montana, under the same conditions and limitations and with the same rights and privileges that it now has and enjoys under its articles of incorporation. Provided, that said corporation shall at all times hereafter be subject to all the laws and regulations in relation to railroads in the United States or of any Territory or State through which it may pass. Or suits by or against said corpora tion may be instituted in the courts of ^ said Territories, or either of them, having juris diction by the laws of such Territories. From this it appears plain that the com pany cannot fairly or in law be denied the right to continue on with the road and to pass beyond the reservation into which the iron horse has already penetrated many miles, unquestioned as to its right until now. In the debate preceeding the action of the House on the bill, Delegate Maginnis said distinctly and in so many words that it con templated entry into and through Indian country, and the measure, with this feature of its provisions clearly understood, and with no effort or purpose to disguise the fact, was passed upon. Mr. Maginnis said : Mr. Speaker, I have been trying for several days to get this bill up. It is a vital necessity to the Territories interested that it should pass to-night. It changes the route of the road from Soda Springs, &c., and gives the road permission to build via the Portneuf Canyon and via Snake river valley and bridge by the most practicable route to Montana. It ex tends the corporate franchise to Idaho and Montana, which is made necessary from the fact that Idaho has no railroad incorporation law. It will traverse the Indian country and facilitate the transportation of troops and sup plies. There is nothing objectionable in it, and I trust that it may be passed. I move to suspend the rules and pass the Senate bill. We quote our Delegate's remarks to show the construction placed by him upon the bill and the interpretation put upon it by the House in the action then taken in passing the bill. We are quite persuaded that Mr. Dillon, speaking for his company, is correct in claiming the right to proceed with the road, and that the Cabinet has made a mistake in questioning that right, by which the immedi ate construction of the line north to Black foot may be hindered and possibly defeated. a to THE COLORADO TRIUMPH. The Colorado election, which occurred on the 1st, was carried by the Republicans, who elected their entire State ticket and Belford for Congress. The returns already received show a Republican majority of upwards of 2,000, which will probably be increased to 2,500 on a full count. It will be remembered that Belford, two years ago, though elected by a majority nearly as large as now, was refused his seat by the House, his Demo cratic contestant being admitted instead. The Republicans of Colorado have again and by a splendid majority returned him, administer ing to the House a rebuke for its partisan action so significant that no such wrong anc injustice on its part will likely be repeated. The Centennial State has indeed done nobly. Its officers, from Governor down, are Repub lican, and Judge Belford's election to the House, aside from being a matter to rejoice over on the merits especially presented in his case, is an offset to the gain of a Democratic Congressman from Oregon. Gallatin county Politics. There are nearly enough candidates op posed to the Democratic nominees for the several offices in Gallatin county to form a separate and distinct ticket. These candi dates come from both political parties. Why not come together, arrange on a basis o: 1 common interests, and make an indcpcndeni ticket complete ? We have little doubt this could be advantageously done. The Demu* caats are in the field, with a full list of càodi dates, eager for the loaves and fishes. AH organized independent movement seems to be the thing most desired by the masses in Gal latin county just now. Sansttr Blaine. Burlington, (la.) October 1.—One of the largest political gatherings ever held in this section of the State, assembled here to-day to hear the speech by Senator Blaine. He spoke two hours devoting himself exclusively to the financial issues of the day. OI K COINTY TICKET. The Central Committee has placed on the Republican county ticket Mr. W. L. Milli gan for County Commissioner in place of George Steell, appointed to the Legislative ticket in place of Joseph McKnight, resigned. Mr. Milligan is an old and esteemed citizen, a well known and well-to-do farmer of the Prickly Pear Valley, who has every required qualification for Commissioner. Mr. Steell, who is a member of the present Board, and who has ably and acceptably discharged the trusts not only of that office but of Repre sentative in our Legislative bodies, bas ac cepted the appointment of the committee, as has also Mr. Milligan for that of Commis sioner. The ticket, amended as it now is, has in no particular suffered therefrom, and remains the strongest and best one presented to the voters of Lewis and Clarke. The Bonanza District. The Belmont Mining Company expect to aave their 20-stamp mill running by the 1st proximo at the latest. The company have about completed their tramway from the Bel mont mine to the mill. Copt. M. L. Tallou, who has had many years experience in the mines of Superior and Colorado, arrived last week and took charge of the mine. He is now driving a lower tunnel to tap the ore body about 100 feet lower, and when opened the ore can be mined and milled at very low cost, probably at about $4 per ton. The ore dumps above contain about 1,500 tons of ore, and in the centre level a ten-foot ore vein is ready for stoping should the mill need more ore before the lower level reaches the main ore body. This company will have invested, by the time the mill is completed and every thing in running order, in mills, purchase of mine, tramway, sawmill, etc., about $100, 000. Tbe mine is a mammoth one, and the investment will doubtless prove good. Messrs. Jurgens & Price have a store at Belmont, keep a general assortment of gro ceries and mining supplies, and report a fair trade. Two saloons, necessary adjuncts to a thriving mining camp, supply the boys with toddy and cigars. Mr. Ackers runs a board ing house near the mill, and Neil Sullivan ias one convenient to the mine—both are well patronized. Messrs. Cotter & Hickey's mill is busy crushing Blue Bird ore, and good clean-ups are sure to follow. The town of Mount Pleasant has mainly 41 'moved on" to Vestel, the saloon of E. M. Hawes being the only re maining business house running. The im mediate proximity of the Blue Bird, Emma Miller, Hickey, Mount Pleasant, and other known good lodes will doubtless revive the town, as they are developed and worked. Vestel has several new and good buildings, noticeable among which are the large store building of Messrs Reed& Root and the hotel buildings of Fred. Lindwedell. Mr. Zembsch shares the mercantile business with Messrs Reed & Root. Mrs. Stephens keeps the gen eral boarding and lodging house of the town. The place has thr°e saloons, and yet the boys keep sober generally. The steam arastra is kept running away on Penobscot ore, as is the new 10-stamp mill also. Ten additional stamps will be added to this mill at once. Messrs. Davis & Tatem having received ord ers to duplicate the mill, Mr. Tatem has taken patters and his foundry will soon turn them out. The Penobscot mine is reported look ing as rich at the bottom as at the top of the shaft, the main shaft now being down some thing over 120 feet. Bad weather deterred your reporter from visiting the Stemple district, but he heard the regular whistle of the mill and judges that it is steadily stamping Whippowill ore. THREE HUNDRED OUNCES. A Nice Clean-up from Ore from the Bine Bird Mine. A ty of is r C. M. Cotter, of Cotter & Hickey, owners of the Bluebird mine, Vestel, last night brought to town 300 ounces of gold retort, the result of their first clean-up, from their five stamp mill, which they recently purchas ed of Milo Courtwright. The run was made on 123 tons of ore from the Bluebird, and the average was $32 to the ton. On the dump Cotter & Hickey have 300 tons of equally as good ore, and at the bottem of their 95 foot shaft they have 10 feet of just such rock. We shall hear good reports from this mine during the coming winter. __ m -•* - Gold Quarts Discovery. N. T. Al8trop, John Peterson and Emil Shoemaker about six weeks ago made two gold quartz discoveries, which promise to be come famous in the near future. The loca tions are names the 44 Hunter " and the 44 Ex plorer," and are located in Deer Lodge County, about two miles south of the Big Blackfoot Mr. Alstrop, who called at our office a few days ago, thinks they have ore that will mill $500 per ton, and is confident they have the richest mines ever struck in the Territory. Fatoÿ' We are in receipt of another communica tion from Jefferson county,in relation to the capture of Foley.theinartienx of Fredericks. As we have recent)? published tbe facts in tbe case, tbe communication would be of no interest to tbe publia The death of Walter B. Dance is announced He died suddenly at Deer Lodge on Friday. Mr. Dance was one of tbe early pioneers of Mftnttia, and for years was connected with important business and mining enterprises in Deer Lodge county. He served two or three terms in tbe legislature, and in social life was greatly esteemed for his genial qualities. TELEGRAMS, it REPORTKD SPECIALLY FOR THE HERALD BY WESTERN UNION TELEGRAPH COMPANY. A Splendid Republican Triumph In Col orado. Denver, October 2.— Nearly complete re turns from 21 counties give the Republican State and Congressional ticket 2,100 majori ty over the Democrats. The remainiLg coun ties will probably increase the majority to 2,500. Judge Belford, Republican, for Con gress, has carried every county except two of those reported. Denver, (Col.,) October 3.— Revised re turns from twenty-one counties increase the majorities heretofore reported. Belford's majority over Patterson (Dem.) for Congress is 2,745. Pitkin's (Rep.) majority over Love land (Dem.) for Governor, is 2,500. The counties yet to be reported will probably in crease the average Republican majority in the State to 3,000. The greenback vote in the State will aggregate about 1,200. The Legislature will stand in the ratio of four Republicans to one Democrat. Utah and Northern Railroad. New York, October 2.—The Times' Wash ington special says that Sidney Dillon, Pres ident of the Union Pacific, has been in the city for several days endeavoring to induce the Government to grant the Utah and North ern railroad right of way through the Fort Hall Indian reservation. Dillon claims that the charter of the latter road gives it the right of way through the reservation in ques tion, but at to-day's Cabinet meeting the question was discussed and it was decided not to permit thejconstruction of the road through the reservation without the consent of the Indians. It is the opinion of promi nent officials connected with the Indian Bu reau that the Indians will not withhold their sanction to the extension of the road if the facts are properly stated to them. The Utah and Norther railroad is a narrow-gauge road r unning north from Salt Lake city, and when completed will connect the Union and North Pacific railroads. It will be one of the most valuable branches of the -Union Pacific and will, fora time, at least, monopolize the freight and passenger trade of Montana Ter ritory. The road is owned by Jay Gonld and parties who at present control the Union Pacific. Washington, October 4.—The Cabinet in session to-day approved the letter of the At torney General giving his opinion that the Utah and Oregon Railroad Company can pass through the Bannack Indian Reserva tion. The treaty with the (Bannacks is not recognized as a law of Congress, which is considered superior to it, and gives the com pany the right to follow the prescribed line. as in no of in Butler Denounce*. Lowell, October 2.— In the Republican convention of the Seventh Congressional Dis trict, to-day, Mr. Durgen, of Reading, offer ed a resolution denouncing Gen. Butler for proving false to the district and to the pledges made by him in 1876, and demanding his immediate resignation as member of the 45th Congress. The resolution was adopted unan imously. Boutwell'8 name was wihdrawn as a candi date. On the second ballot Wm. A. Russell, of Lawrence was nominated. Belief Boat. St. Louis, October 3.—The yeliow fever relief steamer Chambers received her cargo to-day, and will probably leave sometime to night Her cargo consists of about one hun dred and fifty tons of ice, and between 200 and 300 tons of provisions, clothing and med ical stores. Capt. V. M. Yore is master of the steamer; L. A. Haines, Clerk; Thos. Wetzell, mate; Chas. Duffy and George Langell, pilots; Wm. Shepherd, 1st and John Williams 2d engineers. Besides there will be 10 or 12 deck hands and cabin boys. CongrewMonal Nominations. Hudson, N. Y., October 3. —The Demo crats in the Thirteenth District nominated O. P. M. Baker for Congress.

Newport, Pa., October 4.—The Demo crats of the Eighteenth Congressional Dis trict nominated W. F. Stenger. Kearney calls it the Dam-ocracy, and for once we shouldn't*wonder if was right. the 16 in THE HOSTILE CHEYENNES. They Are Making Good Their Escape North. Kansas. St. Louis, October 2.—A special from Leavenworth says the troops had a fight with the Indians at 4 o'clock this a. m., but does not name the place. Lieut. Broderick, 23rd Infantry, was wounded and Corporal Stew art, Co. I, 23rd Infantry, and five soldiers were killed. Capt. Manck with his com mand has crossed Plover creek in close pur suit of the Indians. The bodies of 13 settlers killed by Indians were brought into Buffalo station. Ogalalla, (Neb.,) October 3.—A courier arrived here this evening bringing word from Capt. Mauck's command, reports that Indians were last seen on the Republican river ; that they had killed every white man they came across on the route, stolen horses, and com mitted other depredations. There are about 100 well-armed and well-mounted warriors and about 150 squaws and children in the party. It is thought they will camp 35 or 40 miles south of here to-night and cross about 16 miles west of here to-morrow. The set tlers will send a party of 25 out in the morn ing to ascertain the whereabouts and direc tion taken by them. The courier reports that the hostiles have stolen nearly 250 horses within the last three days, 64 of them on the Republican. Cheyenne, October 4.—Ogallalla reports say that the Indians are crossing the river five miles east of that station. Fifty citizens in Ogallalla are armed and mounted and pre pared to defend the town if it is attacked. Scouts are out in all directions. Denver, October 4.— The following dis patch from Wallace, Kas., referring to the band of Indians that left the reservation near Reno, has just been received: The Indians crossed the Kansas Pacific Railroad Sunday morning going north. When about 25 miles north of Buffalo station they commenced killing settlers, and so far 17 dead bodies have been found along Sappa creek. The Indians do not go out of their way to kill white people, but if they meet a man on horseback they kill,him and take the horse. They are now eighty or a hundred miles north of the Kansas Pacific railroad, with troops pressing them pretty hard. They have killed no women or children, and have not thus far matilated the bodies of any of their victims. The report that Lieutenant Proderick was killed is untrue. There has been no fight since Friday and Proderick is here well and hearty. Cheyenne, October 4.—An engine and caboose have just returned to Ogallalla, the engineer saying he could see Indians on the bluffs. The train with the troops has not yet left Sidney. Ogallalla, Neb., October 4.—The In dians are crossing the Platt river six miles north of here. A party of cow boys who started from here this morning to scout came upon a party of Indians killing a beef. They exchanged shots and made the Indians drop the beef, and leave a horse, mule, some blankets, lariats, hats, etc. They are going north as fast as possible. Sidney, Neb. October 4.—Major Thorn burgh, with a command numbering about 200 men, left here on a special train at 1 p. m. for Ogallalla, to endeavor to stop the hos tile Cheyenne. He will be joined at Jules burg by Lieut Davis and command, from the South Platte. The Cheyenne prisoners, numbering about 250 persons, including 75 warriors, en route for the Indian Territory, who were held at this place until the renegades had passed, were disarmed this morning and are now iu camp at Sidney barracks guarded by Capt. Fitzgerald's company. *1116 Indians at first refused to surrender and trouble was antici pated, but when the troops surrounded them they gave up their rifles and ponies and sub mitted. Camp Robinson, Neb., October 4.—The five companies of the 3d cavalry, command ed by Col. Carlton, who arrived here some days ago, broke up camp at 9 o'clock last night to make a night march and intercept the Indians if possible before arriving at a point north of Clarke's bridge, on the Sidney road. It would appear by the latest information, and other corroborative proof, that the hos tiles now pursued by the troops are endeavor ing to reach the new Red Cloud agency on Woolf creek, 75 miles from Camp Robinson. If they succeed in outmarching the troops, which is not at all improbable, being better mounted, and having about 300 stolen horses in their possefsion as a reserve, something new may be expected. Omaha, October 4.—Tbe scouting party sent out from Ogallalla returned to that sta tion at 2 o'clock, and reported that the Chey ennes numbered about 300. They exchanged a few shots whith some stragglers and cap tured some abandoned stock. The Indians have crossed the North Platte river on their way north. Thornburgh's command, which left Sidney on a special train for Ogallalla, 72 miles dis tant win now have to give them a stem chase. The Indians have got about twenty-five miles start of the troops, and will probably scat* ter. The Cheyennes began crossing the I river five miles east of Ogallalla about 1 o'clock this morning. They were first seen by Union Pacific trackmen who brought t e information to Ogallalla. Scouts were sen out at once and the troops got into readiness Major Thornburgh's whole command * e Sidney about noon to intercept the Indian-
