We accompany the ^uouncement of the new volume with a few vori js. The Herald has satisfactorily pros- ed during the publication year just closed. j t 4 natrons iu that time have largely increased number. It has been favored with many ,, w ami valued subscribers. It has lost here ia j there only a very few old ones. It starts 0ll t in its teens with a larger actual paying i;»t of patrons and a wider and more favoring constituency of readers than at any corres- ponding period heretofore. From every di- rection have come encouraging words and from all parts of Montana have been received more substantial tokens of remembrance, The present shows the paper high in public esteem, and the future is approached with more confidence and hope than we can well express. We expect to progress—to keep abreast of the country— to lead the van of jl, e journalistic column, as we have led it to this time. Improvements will follow close i a the wake of increased patronage. The iioui'W Herald will auspiciously open the New Year, and the reduction in subscription rice to $3 will accompany it. We shall •ek to deserve thousands of additional read- r?i and we feel assured they will come to us luring 1879. - » .« ♦» ^ — ItrturiMMl From llie Field. Surveyor General Mason returned Satur day evening from a six weeks' inspection of [geld surveys, confined principally to the country east of the Belt and Muscleshell mountains and in the valley of the Yellow Ltooe. Camp life seems to have agreed with jiiioi immensely, as his bronzed and health Rowing cheeks unmistakably testify. The settlement of the Yellowstone valley is stated the Surveyor General to be astonishingly apid, more than 300 farms and ranches hav og already been located between Benson's soiling and Tongue river. Large vegetable Tops have been grown there, without irriga ion, the present year, and grain, wherever panted, has done equally well. *• ---- nt%<*'.!

Matrimonial The marriage of Mr. Joseph M. Basin and Miss Hattie La Croix was celebrated by Catholic rites at the Church of the Sacred Hearts, in Helena, on Sunday morning last. The groom is a native of St. Louis, Mo., a descendant of one of the old French families of that city. The bride is the eldest daughter of Mr. L. F. La Croix, one of the publishers of the Independent. She is a sprightly, edu cated, and accomplished young lady, and has in this community many friends who es teem her highly for her amiable and true womanly qualities.

Will Walt for the Senate's Action. at Washington advices received here state that Russell H. Harrison, appointed recently to the Helena Assay Office in place of Chas. Rumley, suspended, has written to Secretary Sherman asking to have his appointment withheld till after the assembling of Congress. Harrison, who is a son of Hon. Ben Harrison, of Indiana, says he does not wish to emigrate to Montana to fill an office with the risk back of him that the Senate might refuse to con firm his appointment. We commend the discretion of the appointee, and regret only that he did not carry it a little farther and decline the office outright. The feeling in Montana is decidedly adverse to the removal of Mr. Rumley, the cause for whose suspen sion no one here can even surmise. Mr. Harrison may be one of the best men for the place in all creation. We do not know. We do know that he is an alien to the Territory —a stranger to this people—and for that rea son his coming here solely as the bearer of a commission to an office, w T ould, in many ways uncomfortable to him, be resented. There could be no objection to Mr. Harrison as an emigrant. It be is at all a "chip of the old block" he would be heartily welcomed. But we say frankly lo the young man, don't com promise your manhood by coming 2,000 miles to earn the questionable title of "carpet bag office-holder." This mountain land in all the natural resources that con tribute to the growth and development of a great commonwealth is abundantly favored. Come here and establish a citizenship, carve out a home in the heart of the continent, and if you are the good man we take you for, and inclination leads you in the direction of office, be sure that your worth will be appreciated and your ambition gratified. Mr. Harrison will wait for the Senate's action. We say, wait for more than that—wait for the action of the people of Montana. Beaverhead. Except Sears, (Rep.) for Probate Judge, Beaverhead voted solidly Democratic. Dart, (Rep.) for Treasurer, was beaten, it appears, by Derasey, (Dem.) by 3 majority. That at least is the way the figures are reckoned at Bannack. Al. Grueter, for Clerk and Re corder, leads his ticket by 127 majority. Mur ray, for Sheriff, is credited with 46 majority. Up to the 16th the official canvass had not been made, the Glendale return not having been received to that date. The precinct gave a majority for Maginnis of 77. New Dress Goods. Attention is called to the new lines of dress goods in the new colorings, viz., navy blue, seal brown, myrtle green, together with fancy mixtures, bourettes, etc., which will be sold for cost, together with the other lines of goods now being closed out at cost for cash. In ad dition will be found the most complete stock of hoseiry, corsets, flannels, zephyors, (3 ozs. for 25 cents,) etc. in the market. Buyers will lay in their supplies before the stock is broken, and save from 25 to 50 per cent on goods in my line. Respectfully, d&wlw-nov90 J. R.

Conditions upon which Government would he willing to make the Helena Assay office a purchasing agency. Treasury Department, T Office of the Director of the Mint, > Washington, D. C., October 13, 1878. j Hon. Martin Maginnis , Delegate , Helena. Sir :—I received a dispatch from you on the 30th ult., requesting to be informed what delayed the purchase of bullion at the U. S. Assay office in your city, to which I replied briefly, that the Treasury Department had not yet beep able to arrange for the transpor tatoin of the bullion east. The Secretary of the Treasury considers the rate of transporta tion heretofore paid the different express companies entirely too high, and has been making for some time past strong efforts to secure a reduction of rates, pending which it was not deemed advisable to undertake to make arrangements for the purchase of bul lion at the interior assay offices. We are now in receipt of a proposition from Wells, Fargo & Co., under which they offer to transport gold bullion from Helena to the Philadelphia mint at the rate of $21 per one thousand dollars in value, and on sil ver bullion $30 per one thousand dollars in value. It is not probable that any better terms can be made by the Department than offered as above stated, and they have no competition for the business. Congress not having made any appropriation to pay the expenses of transporting this bullion, it will necessarily have to be paid by the seller of the bullion, or in other words, a deduction from each deposit sufficient to defray the ex penses of transportation to the Philadelphia mint, would bave to be made. There would also have to be deducted a charge of one-tenth of one per cent, for melting and assaying and a charge for parting the bullion when it is of a character to require that operation prepara tory to coinage. If, under the circumstances above stated, it would be of advantage to the miners of Montana for the Government to purchase their gold bullion at the Helena Assay office, the Secretary would, no doubt, promptly order it to be done. Very Respectfully, H. B. UNDERMAN, Director. lo as C. al. vs. sell M. T. P. in a Apples by the Barrel. The first apples ever shipped to Montana by the barrel were received yesterday by the Morris brothers by overland wagon freight from the terminus of the Utah Northern Rail Road. These apples were shipped from Ann Arbor, Michigan, on the 22d day of September last and were just two months en roule. At present Michigan seems to be the natural source for Montana apples until the compeletion of the Utah Northern rail road ; but it is very clear that when the steamboats on the Missouri make their trips to Benton as late as the first of November, and then above the Falls to near Helena, we shall receive our lucious Michigan apples by the barrel in eighteen days, instead of sixty, as is the rule now. When the Utah Northern is completed the probable natural source of fruit of all kinds will be Utah and California, until Mon tana is supplied from the Bitter Root and Missouri valleys.

If you have any express business in that direction Mr. Nash will properly attend to it. —A shooting affray occurred at the polls at Green River, Wyoming, on election day, between A. E. Bradbury, formerly of Mon- tana and Superintendent of the Sweetwater stage line, and a trapper named Browen. Browen walked up the polls to vote. His vote was challenged by Bradbury. The trap- per thereupon drew a revolver and shot Brad- bury, the ball entering the left shoulder, glanced dawnward a little, broke one his ribs, and lodged against the shoulder blade. The trapper wa9 arrested. --— +4 4^9 *+ - Th« New Telegraph. Four companies of the Fort Ellis command, in charge of Lieut. Robinson, 2d Cavalry, are east of the Yellowstone divide, setting posts for the telegraph to Forts Custer and Keogh. From Keogh one line deflects to Deadwood and Omaha, and another to Bis marck and St. Paul. Similar detatchments are completing the line from Keogh to Custer and from Custer toward Ellis, and it is the confident expectation of Gen. Brisbin that this line will be in complete working order by Christmas. Mr. Largey, who owns the line from Bozeman here, is not a man lacking in public spirit or blind to an opportunity to make a good property, and it is fair to say that if the line to Bozeman owned by him were put in complete working order it would not be necessary for the military authorities to prolong the line from Bozeman to Helena, as they now contemplate. This pan of the line should be completely repaired this fall. it so By ing in on S. of to it to Court Proceedings.

The citizens of Benton talk of subsidizing a free ferry for the benefit of the increasing ttlements south of the river. Messrs. Fitzpatrick, McLean & Co. have the fires going at the new brick kiln. They have 150,000 brick cased for T. C. Power & Bro.'s brick store. T. C. Ppwer & Bro.'s mule and ox trains arrived on Monday from Cow t Island loaded with late freight for the firm. I. G. Baker & Co. have bought and ship ped to Fort Benton during the past season 1452 tons of imported merchandise. In ad dition to the above they have delivered with their line of boats 786 tons of eastern freight for various firms at Heleua and other towns. Benton is happy in the possession of the fastest horses in Montana. Mr. A. P. Sam ple, the purchaser of the Premium mare and the celebrated horse Howell, arrived from Butte last week, and intends keeping the horses in Benton until the spring races open. I—I h — - Strange Caine Disease. We bear reports of serious losses from the disease which has been affecting the cattle along the Jefferson and Beaverhead this sea son. Mr. Orr, of Poindexter & Orr, informs us that the firm has lost ten head of fine thor oughbred cattle, besides several others, and it is also stated that one stock-grower on Big Hole has lost over 300 head. Bis a singular feature of the epidemic that is almost invaria bly affects the cattle that are fattest and in the best condition, and that, once it, attacks them, there is no saving them. Opinions differ in regard to the nature of the disease, some persons insisting that it is the complaint known as the "blackleg," others that it is dry murrain, while still others claim it is a dis ease unknown to the veterinary faculty. We recommend to onr stockmen that they take some measures to diagnosticate the disease, so that, if possible, a remedy may be found. By a combination, to bear the expense, among our stock-raisers, it is very probable that a scientific examination could be made which would rank the complaint among the preventive diseases, and effect a great sav ing to those who are engaged in the impor tant business of raising cattle.— Madisonian.

For the Presidential contest of 1880 Oregon can safely be placed in the Republican column with the addition, probably, of Indiana also— this making a solid North against a solid South. Political signs inevitably point to thus consumettation, and from present appear ances nothing can stay the Republican party from a triumDhant march to victory two years hence. RESULT IX MEAGHER. We print in tabulated form the official can vass of votes in Meagher, showing the result in detail in that county. The full count sus tains the Herald's former estimate, which elects Rader, Sheriff, by a majority of nine. The Captain's triumph is signal, in view of the 75 or 80 Democratic majority ascertained to exist in the county, and the further fact that he is the first Republican to win in the Sheriff contest in Meagher. Rader's personal popularity is attested by the general result and the majority of 54 in a total vote of 86 polled by his neighbors in his home precinct. He has both the duties of Sheriff and Assessor to perform, and we doubt not will show himself a thoroughly competent official in both capacities. Haase, Republican—a thorough going busi- ness man—is elected Commissioner. His success is especially gratifying to the prop- erty and tax-paying interests of the county. The contest between Bar Smith (Rep) and Hornbuckle (Dem) for Commissioner resulted in a tie vote, and who should be declared elected was determined by lot in favor of the latter. Whether the decision will hold good in law, should the question be raised, is doubtful. The several other officers elected are Demo- cratic. --- ^ M- — ---- An Indian Precinct. In Missoula couuty, at the recent election, a return was received and counted from Flat head Lake, which showed on its face nearly a solid Democratic vote, and a majority of 18 for McCormick for Representative. The offi cial canvass showed McCormick had 1 ma jority over Harlan (Rep) outside of this re turn, and it was really Dot necessary to pro duce it to assure his election. The Missoulian , commenting on the matter, says of this pre cinct return : "The time has come m the affairs of this county whRfcafrauds in elections must be frowned aovfo, and candidates whose actions raise a suspicion that they bave to do with such frauds are not to be tolerated near the public crib. The Flathead lake precinct has been a stench in the nostrils of decent people for years. The returns show eighteen votes cast there at the recent election. Mr. Mar tenau, a resident of that place who was in town this week, states that there were but four legal voters in that precinct on election day, and that some of the persons who fig ured on the poll books as the election board can neither read or write. As it takes five legal voters to constitute an election board, there could not have been a levai election at Flathead lake this year. The throwing of this precinct out would not have affected the result upon any single candidate; but we trust that hereafter the board will forget to establish this precinct and that Kootenai Ind ians will no longer be allowed to dictate offi cials to the people of this county." ■ I I1 I H 1 - LIST OF LJETTEHS Remaining in the Poet Office uncalled for at Helena, Lewie and Clarice County, Montana, en the SOtla ia r •( Nerember, 1878 * When called for please eay "advertised.
