From the Daily Herald of January 8. A Bis Paper. The Benton Record is out, according promise, in an enlarged form. Its dimen sions clearly eclipse all competitors and inches and feet it outrivals any journal of Territory. In size we compare it to a bam door. Unfolded to its full spread it could not easily gain entrance to a business block with out swinging wide the double opening. An other striking feature is that its entire 36 long columns are wholly filled with reading mat ter. No advertisements whatever are admit ted. No such sudden bound from a diminu tive to an immensely expansive sheet has be fore been witnessed in Western journalism. The publisher and editor, Mr. Buck, and his assistant, Mr. Healy, have the "sand" them, and with ample aid and means at their disposal will, we are bound to believe, keep the Record up to its present size and recede in no respect from the prominence attained in other respects. The true value of the con tents of the initial mammoth number we are unable to judge, the mailing clerk having ev idently sent us by mistake an imperfect copy and no complete article is legible to the naked eye Will Brother Buck please take cogniz ance of this mistake and favor the Herald with a fair sample of the great publication. We desire to preserve it as a souvenir of the publishing enterprise of Northern Montana. Shot Ont. The new deal in the allotment of "public pap" under the Compulsory Printing Law, soon to take place, will, it is said, wholly de spoil the Madisonian of the share it has here tofore held in the pool. One part goes to the new paper at Glendale ; another to the Sheri dan publication ; while a third goes into the hungry maw of the Governor's "home or gan." The Miner , which has made a long but futile struggle for the Deer Lodge county "swag," has given up the fight, we believe, and succumbed without protest to the inevit able. The submission of both the Virginia City and Butte papers, in fact, is so quiet and lamb-like as to produce the liveliest felicita tions in the Executive office, which appears to exercise the most autocratic power of all patronage coming under the purview of the Public Printing Triumvirate. In PI. The Independent yesterday had the misfor tune to "pi" one of its forms of four pages, and the weekly edition, in consequence, it announces, will be delayed several days. The paper really might have appeared on the regular publication day, but not unoften pride goes before, and also in this case after, a "fall." The Herald, upon request, would have gladly furnished, and without the ask ing now proffer, anywhere from twenty to forty columns of fresh news and choice mis cellaneous matter to fill up the missing pages. Come, now, out at once with a rousing, first class number of the paper. Sadden Chnnfe In Temperature. [special to the herald.] Fort Shaw, January 7. At 9 o'clock this morning the mercury stood at 4 degrees below zero. At 9:10 it marked 50 degrees above, a rise of 54 deg rees in the extraordinary short period of ten mintes. A Chinook wind 6eems to have dis placed the cold strata of air. I report this as something very extraordinary. From the Daily Herald of January 9. • Handsome Number. Our Butte cotemporary, the Miner , issued on the 4th inst. a handsome and valuable number, containing a series of articles and letters descriptive of the mineral properties, developments, products, etc., of the Butte, Glendale, Trapper and other districts, a re view of town improvements, and a series of statistical and other reports of great public interest. The Miner struck off a large extra edition, and copies of the number can be had ready for mailing on application. Order a package and distribute to friends in the States. Precious Metal Produes. John J. Valentine, 8upt of Wells, Fargo A Co., in his annual report, credits Montana with a gold and silver product for 1879 of $3,629,020. Dakota, including the Black Hills, shows a total product of these metals of $400,000 less. Utah is credited with an excess over Montana of about $1,750,000. The total product of the country west of the Missouri for 1879 is placed at $75,349,501. The outlook for 1880, Mr. Valentine thinks, does not indicate a greater product than for the past year. ■- u •» issi mm - Supreme Court. The Supreme Court reassembled this morn ing.

About four miles from the Hot Springs the Pipestone, in a northernly direction, is beltofsii ver bearing leads, which for extent and richness is hardly excelled in Montana. The district has not been extensively pros pected, but a large number of leads known. 1. The Equinoctial was located in 1866 It has three shafts, 55, 50 and 30 feet deep respectively. The ore assays from 50 to 400 ounces per ton and carries from ten to twenty in gold. Selected ores have been sold to Hecla Co. at Glendale, that worked 319 ounces per ton. 2. The Independent lode is 1,500 feet long and the vein is 4 feet wide. The shaft is feet deep. The ore is as rich as the Equi noctial, and some assays went into the thous ands. Selected ores have been sold for $300 per ton at the Hecla works. 3. The Rip Van Winkle is a very large lead. A shaft 18 feet deep in a 20 foot vein, shows no wall rocks on either side. The ore assays $50 to $200 per ton and carries small per cent, of copper. These lodes are owned by Mr. V. A. Smith, of Butte, and he has the title to some others which bid fair to be as good as those others named, but are yet to be developed, which he proposes to do in the Spriog. In addition there are some 30 other leads located in the close vicinity of the above, on which only representative work have been done, but the ore is of the same character as the above described, and is probably as rich. The district is large—three or four miles wide and extending from the Pipestone some 18 miles toward Butte. It probably is a part of the great silver bearing belt that extends to Butte, up the Boulder, on to and around Jefferson City and the Ten Mile district near Helena. Preparations are being made for a good deal of development next year, with a promise of very rich results. New dis coveries are being made daily, which go to prove that the main chain of the Rocky Mountains is a vast store house of the pre cious metals, besides copper, lead, iron and coal. Just below the Pipestone Hot Springs, are the extensive placer mines of Geo. P. Worth ington. The bar is about a mile square and is covered by three ditches which give an abundance of water for hydraulic working. The mine will last for years and pays from wages to about $15 per day to the maD. It has been leased to a Chinese company for four years past, but their lease has expired. Sev eral parties are trying to buy or lease this valuable property. Pushing to the Front. The Frontier Index seems to be picking up, enlarging, and branching out, like other journals of the Montana press. The Index has already added to its dimensions two or three times, and is now a 28 column sheet and still sprouting and growing. An off shoot is the Atlantis , an eight page paper a few weeks since started at Glendale, which is both neat and newsy. Montana is an invit ing field for live newspaper enterprise. From the Daily Herald of January 10. Cataract District. From a gentleman well up in mining mat ters we learn that the Cataract district is hav ing a little boom of itself, or at least expects to have when the spring time cometh. Parties there who are interested in the various leads are preparing to bnild and only waiting for the survey of the town site. Among the principal mines he says are the Mantle, owned by Hauser and Black, the Plattville Minnie and Baby Mine. The lat ter is owned by Dan'l Dutro, has a five foot crevice and turns out rock that will go $400 to the ton. Developments will be begun im mediately. An extension on the Mantle mine has re cently been made by Messrs. Leeper, Taylor, Hestas and Anderson, which prospects well. On.High Oro gulch,Cudmore,Moore and oth ers have made some discoveries. All inter ested in mines there are confident of success. The Plattsville Minnie mine has an 18 foot vein, prospects in free gold and pretty well in silver. It is immediately west of and on a line with the Mantle mine. It is owned by Gibbings & Oatey. Balli ! Advance. We learn from Mr. Frank Taylor, just ar rived from the Terminus, that Superintendent Dunn has received orders to posh forward the Utah and Northern railroad next spriog and not to halt under sixty miles of the Montana side of Pleasant Valley Divide. Contracts for ties and material for this distance have already been let, and the iron for this much of additional track is Li course of manufac ture. It is believed, before the working sea son of 1880 closes, the steam cars will have reached as far north as 8alisbnry, within less than 24 hoars stage ride of Helena.
