Claim's Forks Mines Looking Up—Increased Assessments—LargesT Tax Payer—From t North—The Rial company--Copper cpolis—Reports. County [CORRESPONDENCE OF THE HERALD.] Bozeman, September 26,1883.—Civil En gineer Bern dock, who was appointed by the Gallatin County Commissioners to make a careful examination into the feasibility of a wagon road up the Gallatin Valley to the National Park, has just region and gives a most returned from that glowing account of the scenery along this route. He reports that throughout the entire distance of 100 miles no obvious obstacles present themselves, and the expense the county would be to would come back to Bozeman in a single season, for with a good road up this charming valley Bozeman would become the great outfitting point for the Park. Mr. Schwartz, a representative of the great gunpowder linn of Dupont Bros., Wilming ton. Del., is in town. He is establishing agencies at all the prominent points in Mon tana. In a conversation with your corres pondent he stated that Montana consumed the greatest amount of powder per capite of any State or Territory in the United States. The Presbyterian Broom Brigade are at taining great proficiency in drill tactics, and the twelve young ladies who compose the company are determined their forthcoming entertainment shall outdo anything of the kind ever attempted in Montana. The police think they are on the track of the nimble-fingered gentlemen who, last Thursday, caught on to the combination of Ed. Fridley's safe and abstracted §280. Time will show. Surveyor Dietz has just received his com mission as Deputy U. S. Surveyor, and will at once proceed to lay out the new town of Dornitz, on BoulderjCreek. Brian Bros, have discovered a line vein of (what they call) anthracite coal in the Cin nabar Mountains, within a mile of the Park branch railroad. A petition is being circulated to raise sufficient funds to induce the Butte Base Ball Club to come over and play a match game during race week. The greater por tion of the sum needed has already been raised. Bozeman, September 27, 1883.—M. M. Black, the genial County Becorder, has just returned from a two weeks' visit to the Clarkes Forks mining district, where is located the famous Black Warrior mine, of which property he is one of the principal owners. He reports everything booming. Owners of property are hard at w T ork devel oping, and the amount of ore now on the dump awaiting the completion of smelters is large enough to show 7 most conclusively that these claims are already something more than mere prospects. The Black Warrior has 500 tons on the dump. The Homestake, which is an exceptionally rich property, with a vein loO feet wide carrying gold, silver, copper and lead, and assaying §180 to the ton, has 150 tons ready. The Republic, which was purchased t last fall by Eaton & Company for §60,000, has 4,000 tons, and a dozen others amounts ranging from 50 to 500 tons. Eaton & Co. have nearly com pleted their smelter and will be ready to start up during the coming week. Its capa city is 80 tons daily, and it will be run all winter. A sufficient amount of ore and char coal has already been secured. W. W. Alderson, editor ot the Courier and presi dent of the East Montana Mining Company, is at Cooke City making arrangements for some extensive developments on their valu able property, comprising the Rising. Hun, War Eagle and other mines. W. H. Arm strong, of the Department of the Interior, Washington, D. C. was out to the mines September 15, and purchased the Little Daisy. Forget-Me-Not, Hidden Treasure and one-half of the Red Mountain for §35,000. He says this is only a commencement, and will at once begin the erection of smelting and reduction works. The A. Wells Smelt ing Company will begin work next week and run until December 1st Putting these reports together it is evident that this much abused mining camp is looking up, and the outlook for next year is far from discourag ing. The Board of Equalization met and ac cepted Assessor Smith's assessment role, which aggregates over five million dollars as the valuation of property in Gallatin County. Nelson Story, the banker at Bozeman, is the largest single tax payer, his assessment being one hundred and ninety-three thou sand dollars. Captain J. H. Hathaway, Deputy U. S. Revenue Collector, is in town. He has just returned from a trip to Assinaboine and the country beyond. He reports the Canadian Pacific road completed to a point 40 miles west of Calgarry. James Huver, the gentlemanly advance agent of the Rial Dramatic Company, is in town to-day making arrangements for a series of entertainments to take place October .3d. 4th, 5th, and 6th. Wherever this company has played throughout the Eastern States they have received a splendid patronage, and universal praise. To the completion of the Northern Pacific are we indebted for this and kindred first-class troups. Mr. Huver will be in Helena to morrow. His company are on the way to San Francisco to fulfill a six weeks engage ment. Mr. Roundtree has just returned from a trip to Copperopoli8, and brings the most glowing accounts of the mineral wealth of that region. Bozeman, September 28,1883. —From re cent indications the Bozeman races promise to be a grand success, Huntley and Clark will have their entire stud on the grounds. J. Durgin, the owner of Happy Jack, says to count on his appearance. Assignee, owned by W. Fly ; Bozeman Boy, owned by Libbey ; Little Alice, owned \ tiny of an eye by J. Robinson ; Blue Boy, owned by Craig, and hosts of other noted horses will be pres ent. From the neighboring cities of Butte, Helena, Missoula, Deer Lodge, Virginia City and Billings, large delegations will be in at tendance. Dr. Carroll has just performed a very re markable feat of surgery on the person of a j Norwegian, who was injured in the Bozeman I tunnel some time ago. which operation con sisted in the removal and subsequent reset which was nearly sightless through injury. The patient is doing nice ly and will recover the entire use of his eye i There was one arrest last night. The guil ty person gave his name as Con uas, said he j was in Miles City where it was a common practice to carry deadly weapons, aud to use j them ou ordinary provocation. Nothing was thought of such proceedings there, and he | marvelled greatly that our city 77 authorities should consider such harmless amusement in the light of a crime. He had a hearing to-day before Judge Dawes and was as sessed the usual §10 and costs, and advised to take the first through sleeper for Miles City. _ ^ ____ Railroad Commissioner Returned. Washington, September 27. — Commis sioner Armstrong, of the Railroad Bureau of the Interior Department, has just returned from a four months' tour of inspection over the land grant railroads of the West. Start ing at New Orleans, the Commissioner exam ined the Pacific railroad and its branches and the completed portion of the Atlantic & Pa cific road, as far as the Colorado river. He then travelled through Southern California to San Francisco over the Southern Pacific road, then over the California & Oregon road as far as it was done, and thence by stage to Portland. He reports a gap of 258 miles in tbe last named road between Redding, Cali fornia, and Glendale, Oregon, which is being rapidly reduced. A visit was next made to the Yellowstone Park, for the purpose of de ciding upon the expediency of allowing the construction of a railroad through it. After witnessing the driving of the last spike upoA the Northern Pacific road, the Commissioner returned to Washington. He speaks very confidently of the possibilities of the country through which the Northern Pacific runs, and says, in his opinion the road is destined to become one of the most prosperous in the United States. He believes it will not be so much obstructed by snow as are the Union and Central Pacific roads, on account of the nature of the country it traverses and its easier passes through the mountains. Boze man and Mullan tunnels, he says, will prob ably be completed this year. The Commis sioner also reports the Southern Pacific do ing good business, but does not think the country tributary to it is as valuable as that along the Northern Pacific road. Assistants of the Commissioner, who were sent to in spect the Central and Union Pacific roads, report those roads in admirable order. New Orleans, August 11, 8S3. TO THE PUBLIC !

OFFICE AT GREENHOOD, BOHM & CO.'S Clothing House, Main Street d.tw-S-1 Yellow Fever. 8an I ranci.sco, October 1.—The quar antine officer reports the yellow lever patients on board the steamer New her u recovering. The sick will be removed from the steamer and placed on a floating hulk so that the other passengers may not be exposed, as at present, to the fever. No new cases have developed since the arrival ol the steamer, every possible precaution being taken to prevent contagion with the shore. All letters sent by those on board to friends on shore are fumigated before delivery. None of the passengers have been permitted to leave the vessel. The report that second officer Graham had died was premature. It was believed for a few moments after a violent fit of vometing that he had ceased to live, but he rallied, and although still low his condition has improved. There was another shower this morning and the weather is cooler. Guaymas, October 1.—The steamer Sonora, lying in quarantine, had one deatn aboard. Another death is reported at Nogles and eleven at Hermosillo. Advices show that the fever is still badly raging at the latter point, but it is difficult to obtain precise details. An Indian samt arrived this morning with the news that a fever of the same kind had broken out among the Gaques Indians. Several had died, but he did not know how many. At this point no deaths have occurred in the past two days, and the fever may be said to have subsided. The thermometer this morning stood at 84°, rising to 92° at noon. Pensacola, October 1.—Forty days ago two cases of yellow fever were announced. The men were sent to quarantine and Surgeon Murray, of the Marine Hospital, held a post mortem on one and treatment for the cure, and pronounced both cases malarial fever. For ten days there has been some malarial fever, due to the re markable drought. Four days ago another case of yellow fever was announced, but no new case since. The community is divided about the matter. A large majority refuse to believe the case to be one of yel low fever. About 100 citizens returned from refuge but fled again. There is very little excitement, but business is prostrated and the local merchants are greatly. To Prevent Hog Cholera. New Orleans, October 1.—Daring the past summer Dr. Salton, of the Agricul tural Department, has been conducting a series of experiments intending to ascer tain the causes and means of preventing hog cholera and pleuro pneumonia among cattle. At tue cattle station, near this city, about thirty cows have been subjects of the experiment. Fifteen of them were inoculated to ascertain if the effects of the disease which prevails about Washington sufiering w^ contagious, but no results tending to ! establish that conclusion followed inocula tion. Other experiments were made to discover a system of vaccina tion to protect hogs and chickens from cholera. The greatest obstacle to encoun ter was its liability to deteriorate. Virus must be cultivated so as to keep a uniform strength, but as there are no means of do ing this it will have to be ascertained by other means. Butchee and his Fight in a Church. Galveston, October 2. —In a meeting house at Comanche on Suncfay, after preaching was over and the congregation had gone to witness a baptism, Robert brother William, both of whom had remained in the building, be came engaged in a quarrel with a Mr. Har ris. Robert Rutchee received the contents of a gun and expired within a moment. Will Bntchee then engaged in a scuffle for the gun, in which Harris was pounded on the head so badly that he may die. Will Butchee was arrested. The origin of the difficulty is not stated. u ! i j Archbishop Purcell's Debts. Cincinnati, October 1.—The Hamilton j County District Court, composed of Judges | Johnson, Smith and Moore, this afternoon j decided the case of J. C. Murk, assignee, vs. J. I*. Purcell, which was an action by : the assignee to obtain the judgment of the court as to liability of the diocese church property to pay the debts of the late Arch bishop Purcell. The case is one ot great magnitude The hearing occupied three months, ending in June, 1882, and has been under consideration till now. The opinion was delivered by Judge Smith, beginning at 2 o'clock and occupying three hours. Out of nearly 200 pieces of prop erty held by the Archbishop fourteen were selected for this trial as being repre sentative of all. Nine of them were churches, and the others were the cathe dral, including the Archbishop's residence and seminary, the Cumminsville Orphan Asylum, St. Joseph's Cemetery, old and new. The court found that in the cases of the churches, though the title was in fee simple in Archbishop Purcell, yet they were built from money raised by members of the different congregations, and that the title was in the Archbishop's name by rea son of the rules of the church, which in such case the court is bound to regard, that the Archbishop held the title only as trustee for the uses of the congregations, and that property so held could not be subjected to the payment of the Arch bishop's debts. In the case of one church, the court held that as the Archbishop had advanced some money to the church, it was liable for that amount to the assignee, j As to the cathedral and cathedral school, | built by the Archbishop directly from I lands placed in his hands by subscription, tbe court held that though the Archbishop held the property in trust as he did other churches, yet to the extent of the amount he had advaced the assignee was entitled to recover, with interest, for the benefit of the creditors. The mortgage and sale of the asylum at Cumminsville, given by the Archbiphop, was declared of no binding force. The same view was taken as to St. Mary's cemetery, with an order for refer ; eDce to the master to ascertain if the Arch bishop made advances to this property. As to the cemetery, the majority held that they were dedicated to the public ; that consecration did not amount to dedication, and that the portion as now not sold as burial lots can be sold for the benefit of the creditors. Judge Johnson dissented as to referring to pieces of property to the master for account, and dissented wholly from the view that the cemeteries were not dedicated to the public and held in trust by the Archbishop. Gale in New England. ! inc ^es of 'snowmen ffi^he^o^ern paTt "of Franklin county Saturday night Montreal, Canada, October 1.—A severe frost last night did great damage to grapes and vegetables. Boston, Mass., October 3.—A heavy storm, with rain and snow, has pre vailed in eastern Vermont during the last twelve hours. Freight cars coming from north and central Vermont are covered with snow. Rain is very much needed, as springs and streams are very much lower than for twenty years. Corn and potatoes are badly affected by.the drought, and the apple crop will be nearly a failure through out the State. Heavy rain general through out New England. At St. Johnsbnry the weight of the snow damaged ' apple trees and telegraph wires. At Portsmouth, N.H., the gale is terrific and increasing. Two unknown schooners are on the rocks, many slipped their anchors and fouled. At Bridge port a whole tow, consisting of eleven boats, broke away from their tag boats, and if they sink will involve a loss of $30,000.
