in the t alley. Hunting and Fishing» The New Lines in Eastern Mon tana and Their Future Pros pccts--Rich Coal Mines» Col. Sanders 9 Speech at Bozeman, Etc., Etc. [From our Traveling Correspondent.] Relieving that it would he pleasant, after a hard summer's work, to go out to the mountains and rusticate for a few' days, I ap pealed to some gentlemen in Bozeman to accompany me on my trip. Having purchased the paraphernalia for such a trip as one always finds use for when sojourning in the mountains, and being equally w'ell equipped with guns, ammunition, etc., we were seen wending our way towards Fort Ellis, where we were to re-pack, it being necessary to have a tent along to protect us from the cold night air in the mountains. From here our party rode to and through Rocky Canyon, one of Montana's attractive places of resort and pleasure. We camped some six miles from Bozeman, in a small valley, near a iK-autiful stream of cool, clear, sparkling water which had the appearance of thousands of bright diamonds that were imprisoned in the course of the stream. The w ork of pre paring supper soon began, and as we had come nearly prepared for the first meal it was soon ready and much sooner eaten, for the ride had materially increased our appe titesto an alarming degree. The morning dawned clear and cool, there having l>een a heavy frost during the night. After breakfast came the work of packing our goods. This, I must say, would have been more interest ing to a looker on than to ourselves. The difficulty was in throwing the "diamond hitch," a peculiar throw made with the rope 1 will not say that we got it all "O. K.," but nevertheless it stayed by us. The third day out we arrived at the house of James George (better known as " Yankee Jim," our place of destination. Here we were received by most convivial personage of whom we can hardly give a correct description further than saying this much of him, he was a splendid host. In Trout fishing was the first part'of the pro gramme to l>e considered. We were soon off to the river, down near the canyon where the water runs very rapidly, this being the best place for trout. White fish are also caught in great numbers in any of the streams or lakes. We spent three days here very pleasantly. The scenery is grand, particularly in the upper canyon, some forty miles above the lower one. In leaving these canyons some tine farming and grazing land is met with. One thing especially we noticed, and that was the grass and herbage was still looking quite green and fresh, while in other portions of Montana where I had lately travelled serious damage had resulted to the crops from heavy' frosts. In this section of which I speak, the frost had done no damage whatever to farm or garden, and everything still wore its green coat. Business matters called me away and I reluctantly departed, leaving the boy s to perambulate the valleys and mountains in search of game. It is the great desire of mankind in general to perform some chivalrous act, that they may receive honors or wear laurels. On my return to Bozeman 1 stopped at Hayden for the night. The people in this community are very much in need of a good store, which enterprise would well repay some enterprising party or parties to under take. There is now quite a settlement in the valley besides a large local trade that they could get, it being on the direct road to the new mines in Eastern Montana known as Clarks Fork, Bear Gulch, Crevice and Mill Creek, and which at present seem to he the richest in the Territory'. But lit tle work in the way of improving these mines can be accomplished since they' are all on the ( row reservation, but included in the last treaty, which only awaits being ratified by Congress at the next session, and it is to he hoped that so important a matter as this is will receive their early attention. As 1 approached Bozeman 1 made it in my way to pay a visit to the coal mines some eight miles east of Bozeman. The mines are owned by Col. Chestnut, of Bozeman, and Maj. Cease, of Terry's Landing. The mine has been leased to Mr. Z. P. Pott for a period of two years. Mr. P. has had large experi ence in the coal mines of Pennsylvania. The first entrance is from the east side and it Ls -nine 300 feet to where they are digging. The nature of the coal is soft (bituminous) and of a very fine quality. The vein they' are now working on is very much superior to the one worked last winter. The reason of this was due to its being an upper layer and by an upheaval of the rocks the bitumen had been displaced by the pressure. The vein is nine feet in width and dips to the north at an angle of G5° and reaches the sur face above. The political speech delivered by' Col. Wil bur F. Sanders on Saturday evening last at Chestnut's Hall, was listened to by an august body' of Bozeman's liberty-loving Republic ans.. H seemed that the citizens turned out c>i masse to support the good cause that one of our party has so nobly undertaken and with one who by the kindness of providence has been endowed with that indomitable "ill that lie possesses must inevitably achieve victory and bear away the honors a *id laurels that he is so worthy of bearing. is ed Ills ascent to the stage was made manifest l>y long and loud appiause from the multi tude of people who seemed wild with enthus iasm. The Colonel was introduced by Peter Koch, of Bozeman. This mark of courtesy was performed in a few words that were ap ropos to the occasion, and which were ap plauded by the audience. Among the issues ant his the said set forth in the Colonel's speech were that of the improvement of our rivers, the advance of the railroads and the Indian treaties to be consummated. The first is a very important question that should interest every voter, for w e are all of us immediately interested in this project more or less. The railroads are all right. They may be classed as the veins, but the rivers are the arteries to the transit. All thsse superior advantages to our free gov ernment tend to advance the immigration from the Old World. Axioms are odious at times, but in this particular instance they are rare and should be cherished as much as possible by the mass of the people. We are a nation and not a confederation of jealousies. The time was when people thought that the power laid in the State and not in the nation I am diametrically opposed to political ani mosity in any form whatever. As the season for traveling is about closed and I am soon to assume the duties of the school room, I will bid my numerous friends and many readers of the Herald, aurevoir. GEO. H. SCOTT. DROHEN STUFF. How many children and women are slowly and surely dying, or rather being killed, by excessive doctoring, or the daily use of some drug or drunken stuff called medicine, that no one knows what it is made of, who can easily be cured and saved by Hop Bitters, made of Hops, Buchu, Mandrake, Dandelion, Sic., which is so pure, simple and harm less that the most frail woman, weakest invalid or smallest child can trust in them. Will you be saved bythem ? See another column. Mining in Meagher. .Jas. King has closed Ills active mining operations in Confederate for the season. He has made large purchases of mining ground and ditch property during the year, having bought all the ground not already owned. Expenditures in the Boulder ditch this season, including propertv purchases, aggregate about $(»0,000. The Boulder ditch, now owned by Mr. King, was constructed by Mr. A. McGregor and others at a cost of $90,000. The w ater is conveyed from Boulder creek, across Confed erate, in iron pipes 22 inches in diameter. Mr. King has about four miles of gulch at the head of his bed-rock flume, which is esti mated to take at least 35 years to work out. In addition to this the w'ater controls all of the ground on Boulder Bar, which embraces several hundred acres. The flume is seven feet wide, with partition in center, making one three and the other four feet wide. He has men cutting through rims, in order to make the flume straight, and is doing other work to have all things in readiness for the spring of 1881, with increased water facilities and large increase of pressure for giant work. With the grade dump and large amount of ground owned by the Diamond Flume and Hydraulic Company, it promises to become one of the most profitable mining ventures of the kind ever undertaken in Montana. to A Wonderful Curiosity. The Columbia City (Ind.) Commercial says: We received a pleasant social call one day last w eek from Allen T. Linville, of Diamond City, Montana, who showed us some very fine specimens of gold quartz, nuggets, dust, &c., taken out of the mines of w hich he is part owner. He had one nugget that assayed something over $46. The most rare specimen that he showed us w'as a gold arrow head that found its way into the flumes and lodged in the catch basin, where it was picked up by Mr. Linville some three years ago. He thought at the time that it was copper, and placed, no particular value upon it. In getting up his specimens to bring with him to show his friends here he placed the arrow head among the others, and while on his way here he had occasion to show his specimens to a friend, and when he came to examine the arrow' head more closely lie found that it was gold. This is certainly a wonderful curiosity, and would afford antiquarians days of study to determine when and by whom it was pro bably made. Mr. Linville's theory is that it was made by the Indians years ago, and has probably been lying in the mine for ages. It is certainly a great curiosity and is highly valued by Mr. Linville who has refused $50 for it. Northern Pacific JÎ. 11. During the past fiscal year the Northern Pacific railroad has operated 722 miles of road, including the Brainard branch, but not including the Missouri division, not yet opened to traffic. The gross earnings for the year w ere $2,280,181.81, an increase of $823, 971.16, or nearly 60 per cent., over the pre ceding. The net earnings for this time were $709,088.06, of which $674,500 w ere expend ed for the improvement and equipment of the road. The report gives a detailed ac count of the improvements along the line in Minnesota and Dakota, including extensive improvements in progress in St. Paul, and elevators whose aggregate capacity is 1,238, 000 bushels. The land sales for the year amount to 249,305 acres. Burned at the Stake. Denver, October 8. —The following was received from Del Noi'te to-day ; A Lieuten ant of the 4th Cavalry, passing through here to-day, stated that at Rock Clift' a report reached him that A. S. Jackson, the man who shot the Indian a few' days ago, was found dead at the stake. This tallies with the In dian threats, and is generally believed. Great excitement prevails and the citizens threaten vengeance. St. Julien. Washington, October 8.—St. Julien made his second heat in 2:13f. SIO REW ARD.

To the Editor of the Herald : For more than one hundred years have the down-trodden people of Ireland been for saking its tax-burdened soil, escaping from the iron heel of an aristocratic government to find a home and protection on the free soil of America. Their cries of anguish have echoed all over an island impoverished by the landlord's heavy grasp upon them, but failing to find that sympathy which humanity claims fromjintelligence, they fled from oppres sion and swarmed upon our docks and piers from Maine to Florida. They brought with them over the ocean the scars and sufferings of a people long enslaved, whose only crime for such servitude was miserable poverty, made so by a class of wealthy mercenaries who fattened upon their impoverished labors. They claimed they were but menials, as well they might, and although they were not bought in flesh and sold in blood, their exist ence under British rule was scarcely better than servitude and slavery under the laws of the New World. In leaving the mud thatched roof of the land of Erin, they sought by coming to America to forever shake off that stigma of regal dominion and take for themselves a new life on the Western Hemis phere, where liberty sat enthroned, invincible alike by wealth and power. Their instincts were but natural, as has been evinced where ever intelligence predominates ; but how sadly many of these down-trodden refugees have mistaken their mission when once citi zens among us. Upon reaching our great seaboard cities, they have been induced, through means and measures most wicked and horrible, to support a political hyena as inimical to their rights and freedom as were the cold and rigid enactments of the British crown. Unacquainted with our system of government, nnd influenced by a class, many of whom were by kindred allied both by in terest and instinct to the old aristocracy of England, they were prevailed upon by the most dishonorable means to support a politi cal faction in the New World as culpable and indifferent to their appeals as were those from whom they had in defiance left the shores of the Old. They naturally allied themselves with the Democratic party, which from its infancy has been the oppressor of the poor of the South. They are but scions of the parent tree that o'ershadowed the liberties of Irish men in Britain and engrafted, or sought so to do, their pernicious and inhuman princi pies on the freedom of America. It has never been to the interest of Irishmen to support the political Democracy of America, for that element has from its incipiency been opposed to equality and in favor of aristocracy. This was proved by the action of the old slave oligarchy in keeping the rich rich and the poor poor ; and this, too, without regard to color or to race. This party has never been the friend of the Irish.. If there are any who doubt this assertion, take its history for the record. They have advocated and passed State enactments prohibiting an Irishman from becoming a local voter until residing in their State seven years. They have been opposed to internal improvements by govern ment aid, which cut oft' thousands of the poor laborers from earning a subsistence for them selves and families. They were the parties of slavery for all poor men, and advocated the infamous doctrine that there must be two classes—one to rule and the other to obey. This did not apply to the black man more than to the white. They have for years advocated, and are now advocating, a free trade, whereby American labor shall be measured by the beggars of Europe. They were never the advocates of giving free homes to naturalized citizens, and for years opposed it in the national Con gress. They were seeking the aid of Eng land (and obtained it to a certain extent) in the dark and terrible days of an unholy re bellion whose whole cause and determina tion was to make slavery universal and to yoke the poor, both white and black, in one common harness. Had they won in the war, you, fellow Irishmen, would be to-day on a common footing relatively with peons and slaves. You have fought to break your yoke of bondage in the Green Isle, been robbed of your mother tongue under bans and penal ties, and being pricked to the core—forsaken all but the memories of a land once dear, to join with a nation which boasts of perfect freedom. Who are the people that are guar anting the rights and liberties you hold so dear? Wliat party is endeavoring to bequeath you this boon ? It is none other than the Republican party of to-day. In the choice for Delegate we offer you a man who from instinct and education is a living type of every principle you have advo cated in your own Ireland. He represents a party which has been and still is the friend of the oppressed of all lands. It is the prin ciple that the Republicans .sçektp perpetuate above the man. Major Maginnis may be at heart a Republican, but the party who sup ports him is stronger than he, and in accept ing their aid is expected to re-echo their views regardless of liis honest conviction. As you value your prosperity as a race how can you give your support to a faction an tagonistic to every principle of universal freedom. Are you not allied by all the ties of humanity to that party which forced the shackles from five millions of bondmen, and made the beggar the peer of the Prince? You cannot be insensible of the fact that thousands of your kindred are leaving the ranks of moder Democracy and joining the army of progress in this free land of America. A our interests in common with all citizens demand your attention to the issues of the day. If you are solicitous of maintaining the rights of freemen loose no time in unit ing yourselves with the party who have by their acts and records declared that these United States shall forever be a nation. W e offer you as a representative Wilbur F. Sanders, the embodiment of every princi ple that secures a permanent foundation for this glorious Republic, as enduring and eter nal as the fathers swore it should be when they declared in thunder tones those "self evident truths." Will you accept him? Will you go back to the dark days of our history, when the infant life of this now prosperous Territory was menaced by law lessness—when the very atmosphere was re dolent with the unsavory odor of assassina tion and blood—and enquire who among all that homogeneous throng was first to declare for order and society—who was for the pres ervation of honest industry ? If so you will not fail to find the name of Col. Sanders. True to the interests of right and justice then, our w'elfare may be safely entrusted to him now, in the riper years of experience. We do not concede the truth, as some have seen fit to state, that Irishmen only vote for the O's. We know much of their patriotism. Their interests are identical with every American citizen, and when left free to choose we believe the masses are Republican at least in principle. To the future then be longs our duty. The continuation of our Republican form of government, guarantee ing the free and full right of every citizen is, the only solution that will make ns a great people, and he who most fully represents these views should be the people's individual choice.
