C'onsider •am tin has also been found, and ft is that a very considerable amount of tm will soon lie produced in that region. The Hills have several ad vantages for tin mining. There is au abundance of water for concentrating work.', and a profusion of wood for charcoal to il'»- in smelting. Raleigh «V Clarke. The great wholesale and retail store of Kaleigh & Clarke in Helena lias been pro verbial for its fashionable goods, new style-, and low prices. In their new de parture to meet the demands for small profits aiid quick returns, they have put prices at such rates as will compete for their share of the public patronage. They call attention to their fresh shipment of autumn and winter goods, and their gen eral stock of fancy dress goods and fancy articles. Mr. W. B. Raleigh, whose taste in selecting fashionable goods is recognized by his customers as up toaud equal to their own tastes, if they were in Broadway, has just returned from the eastern cities with one of the largest stocks of ladies' and chil drens goods ever brought to Helena. Their stock of staples, such as sheetings, linens, napkins, towels, bleached and brown mus lins. is immense and the prices so low that they challenge competition iu those lines. Their fall stock of French milliuery is com plete, and embraces a tasteful line of feathers, llowers, ornaments, frames, velvet ribbons, laces, plushes and silks, Paris and New York pattern bonnets. A full line of ladies' and children's shoes and slippers, Edwin C. Burt's line work. Also cloaks, dolmans, ulsters, wraps, circulars, shawls, etc. There can lie feund no greater or choicer selection of fashionable goods in Montana, which they offer on accommo dating terms. They ask a call from the ladies all. Timber Fires. Mr. P. W. Scott, who has just returned from flit* country beyond the Big Black loot, reports the timber fires as something appalling. On the North, as far as the South Fork of the Flathead river, for a distance of a hundred miles the forests are all on lire, raging with terrific fury, so much '0 that the cattle and game are paralized with fear, and the country so enveloped in smoke that objects could not be distin gui'lied at a hundred yards. An idea of the fury of the fire may be got by Scott's statement, which was that where the tim ber came to the Big Black foot, on either side, the flames leaped over the rivera hundred and fifty feet wide. Unless the present rain should put out the fires, the loss of valuable timber will be immense and irre parable. Meeting of the Water Association of the Prickly Pear Valley. The executive committee of the Water Association of Prickly Pear Valley met at Grange Hall on the 29th ult. and adopted, with but one dissenting vote, a plan of settlement between the claimants of the water of Pri' kly Pear creek for irrigating purposes in the valley. They also decided to call the Association together Saturday, the bill inst.. at 10 o'clock p. m., at Grange Hall, to consider the matter. All who have claims iu the water of Prickly Pear creek, whether members of the Association or not. are requested to attend, as the re port that will then be submitted to the Association will involve the final settle ment of the water question. An Unusual Pacing Season. 1'lie American public has been slow' to realize the possibilities of the American horse, but this summer the long deferred appreciation seems to have been accorded, ilie spring meeting of the Coney Island hiekey club at Sheepshead Bay was a k'aud success, and the same may be said o! the subsequent gatherings at Jerome I'ark and Monmouth Park and the autumn meeting at Sheepshead Bay. From present appearances the autumn season at Jerome 1'ark. which will begin on Saturday of this "eek. will be successful in every particular. Better late than never." For many years the American horse has been sub T elt on, treatment owed on his meted to as careful selec and training as has been bei hind anywhere else in the world. Quali ties peculiarly his own have enabled him jo take full advantage of all the attention >e has received, and if at any past time he has not been regarded according to his merits he has not been to blame for the jj e glect. Now. at last, he is receiving his ( hic in admiration. Those who accord.it aie to l»e congratulated on their godd sense. ~~ 1 he assessment of Lewis and Clarke eounty is looming up this year, and it is thought that the grand total will foot up m ° re than $7,000,000.

PHILIPSBÜRG TO THE FRONT. me Pioneer Camp of Montana Redeeming Her Early Promises—Nine hundred and Ninety Fine Bullion fiy the Ton—Two Hnndred Ounce Ore by me Thousands of Tons-Tht Granite Moun tain Mine the Boss Prodncer—The Algonquin Mill me Champion Reducer. To the Editor of the Herald . Hasmark, Montana, .September 2G. —For the past year there has been quietly devel oping just above Hasmark a mine known as the Granite Mountain, owned principally by .St. Louis capitalists, John R. Lineberger being President and Eastern manager. At this eml of the line Mr. Frank L. Perkins presides as agent in charge, than whom a better or more reliable man for such a place it would be hard to find. The mine was discovered and located and re-located several years ago, but little work was done until two years ago, when Chas. Clark bonded the mine for .St. Louis par ties. since which time the work has been actively prosecuted, until now the mine is well opened and producing ore enough to keep twenty stamps busy. * The mine is on a steep mountain side and is developed by tunnels run iu on the vein. No. 2 tunnel is in 1,100 1'eet. For the first 900 feet the vein is wide and strong, but most of the ore is of a very low grade. When in about 900 feet the vein pinches and remains so for nearly 100 feet, then opens out again and for the next 140 feet there is a vein from three to seven feet wide of the finest ruby and antimonial silver ore ever seen in any mine. The face of the drift is still in ore and is 385 feet below the surface. For thirty days, ending July 20th last the Algonquin Mill reduced 510 tons of this ore, the product being 78,550 ounces of fine silver. The mill started again on the 21st of August, and to date has turned out 116,300 ounces of fine silver from 550 tons of ore, a saving of over 200 ounces per ton. The mill is still running on this grade of ore. The battery gives from day to day from 220 to 225 ounces per ton. Four hundred ounces a day from a 20-stamp mill is pretty handsome for the stockholders, hut rather warming for the amalgamators, retorters and melters. The bullion is from 950 to 990 fine. I should have mentioned above that the Granite Mountain Co. have up and are just starting a large Burleigh air compressor and during the coming winter they propose to run three tunnels, sink winzes, make raises—using two Burleigh and one Dia mond drills—and thoroughly develop their mine, after which they propose to build such a mill as the character and quality of ore demands. Some other day I will write you of some of our other bonanzas, ancient and modern. TRUTH. A Railroad Operated by Water Power. A cable railroad, operated by water power, is tobe located on Wood River, and trains run by that method between Hailey and Ketchum. The machinery plant will he at a point midway between the two camps. The water power is plenty and to spare. The track will extend from the depot at Hailey to the Philadelphia smelters above Ketcum, the distance being 10J miles, and the speed of the wire will he such as to take a car between the two points iu one hour. At present the road between the tw T o towns is lined with teams hauling ore, coke, coal, merchandise, etc., and it is estimated that the traffic over the road by another season will he at least 400 tons per day. Work is to begin at once, and is to he pushed to as early a finish as possible. Directors of the Fair Association. The stockholders' meeting of the Mon tana Agricultural. Mineral and Mechanical Association was held Monday evening, and the following hoard of directors for the en suing year was unanimously chosen : A. J. Davidson, W. A. Chessman, W. B. Hund ley, Francis Pope, S. H. Crounse, A. Hersh field, C. D. Hard, J. Schuyler Croshv, and S. S. Huntley. Two-thirds of the stock was represented, and entire harmony char acterized the proceedings of the meeting. Montana Stock. [Helena Era.] That Montana is pre-eminently a stock country there cannot arise in the minds of those who have been engaged in that line of industry any caviling or doubt. The topography, the pure running brooks, and streams of spring water, the luxuriant and nutritious grasses found in the miles of ranges during summer, while in autumn and winter the' numerous gulches and mountain sides furnish ample grazing and excellent protection from the storms that may break arofind them. It is only neces sary to glance over the statistics and the various reports of different stockgrowers will a^nce convince the most unbelieving that we are destined to become as noted for the immense herds of cattle and bands of sheep that range over our valleys and mountain passes as is Michigan for fruits, or Indiana, Illinois and Iowa for corn and swine. The aggregate of wealth during the past quarter of a century of these three "I's" is marvelous in the extreme. In the presence of all this enormous array of wealth we will not falter. With our illim itable resources and the rapid development of our stock and mines, we have no cause for alarm, but the next decade will reveal in our Territory untold millions of wealtn. The present season will not Have closed before there will be 65,900 head of young steers shipped into our Territory from one of the States, there to remain until next season, tatted, and then taken to Eastern Montana. The advantages we can öfter as regards water, ranges and protection in winter, insure us an abundance of stock, and a superior grade for the market. —Twenty thousand subscriptions are in the hands of the publishers for Blaine's forthcoming Political History.

As foretold in these columns, the pro posed third rail interchange by the Utah & Northern and Northern Pacific between Helena and Butte is not to he. The Union Pacific managers appeared disposed to carry out their part of the agreement of a year ago, and recently put a large force of men at work on the Narrow Gauge, widening the road-bed and delivering ties between Silver Bow and Garrison Junction. There was no corresponding movement by the Northern Pacific between Garrison and Helena, and the Hrrai.d was convinced, and so expressed itself, that the U. & N. would not he allowed to cross the Divide and enter Helena by the Northern Pacific track. This prophecy now seems to he verified by the discontinuance of third rail work on the U. & N. in obedience to orders directing the withdrawal and dis haudonment of the force of laborers thus employed. There is an obvious absence of sympa thetic accord between the Northern Pacific and its Union Pacific rival in Montana. We think it entirely clear that the former intends, at the earliest practicable day, to connect its trunk line by an independent branch to Butte. Not less than twenty six of the seventy odd miles separating the Capital City from Summit valley will be traversed by a completed railway within the next forty days. The remaining inter val of fifty miles can be covered and a com peting line put in operation to the Silver City in time to share in the traffic of that district early in the season of 1884. And what in the interim is the U. & N. to do ? As matters now stand it is vir tually corralled at Blackfoot, or rather at Deer Lodge, where it is obliged to discharge east-side freights, which are hauled from that point by wagon over a mountain road of forty or more miles. The Narrow Gauge, it is presumed, will come to Helena by its own line. From the mouth of the Blackfoot it can reach the Capital within the time and distance that the Northern Pacific can reach Butte, or in something more time and distance it can come to Helena by an all val ley route from the south, saving in the traffic of central Montana two crossings of the Main Range. It is surmised that the L T niou Pacific managers will be as prompt and active in this great field for railroad conquest as its northern neighbor. Its narrow gauge prong is of first importance as a feeder, and its extension to other and many points in Montana may he relied up on among the certainties. THE RAILROAD CONFERENCE. What San Francisco Thinks of it- The Northern Pacific Conceded One Important Point--AII the Railroad People Profess to be Satisfied and Happy. The railroad conference practically ended where it begun. California was left un molested. and remains as mach as ever the undisputed territory of the Central Pacific and its leased lines. The Northern Pacific had one point conceded, that Portland should he placed iu the same category as San Francisco as a terminal point. As there is no railroad connection between San Francisco and Portland, and as the water route is practically controlled by the Northern Pacific, it is difficult to see what has been gained by the conference. There is now only one course opeu, that is for the Northern Pacific to push its route through to San Francisco, and thus he in a condi tion to make its own through tariff be tween San Francisco and New York. But such a course would result in breaking the pool. By the new arrangement San Fran cisco merchants will lose all sales in Ore gon and northern Territories of Eastern goods. On the other hand the manufac turing interests of California will he no worse off than before. In interviews with several managers, all expresseed decided satisfaction at the result of the conference, and John Muir, traffic superintendent of the Northern Pacific, appeared especially pleased, saying they had obtained all they wanted ; that the right to put down freight in San Francisco at the same rates as the Central and Southern Pacific lay it down was worth something. "What have you conceded iu return ?" asked a reporter. "We let them set down freight in Port land on the same basis, hut remember we take up their freight in our own steamers, which increases our earnings and assures us a share in the pool, no matter which way Eastern freight gets into Oregon. The only point in their favor is, they can carry can ned salmon from Astoria at the same rate via San Francisco as we can via the Northern Pacific, subject, of course, to the same re striction as to shipment to San Francisco via our steamers. Another point in our favor is, we have secured the right of shar ing in all speecial contracts now in force, and which hold until the end of the year, so that goods can he shipped over the Northern Pacific under Union Pacific spe cial contracts." Mr. Muir admitted the only incentive to shippers to prefer his road was fast freight trains, running in seven and a half days from St. Paul. Assistant Freight Manager Stokes of the Northern Pacific expressed himself similarly to Mr. Muir. E. P. Vin ing, of the Union Pacific, did not consider Villard had been worsted, hut thought he had got all he asked, that the Northern Pacific's chance to compete with San Fran cisco business was a very valuable conces sion. Jay Gould's man Hoxie was more reti cent, saying matters were only partially arranged, but he was satisfied so far. J. C. Stabte, traffic manager for Stanford & Co., also refused to go into particulars, only ad mitting being satisfied, like the rest. The Chronicle editorially expresses the opinion that the pool will virtually result in the Central Pacific and the Northern Pacific system refraining from intruding upon the territory of each other, and as a conse quence no rival feeder roads are liable to he constructed as long as it stands. ' & GALLATIN GLEANINGS. Brilliant Success of tie Japanese Tea Party Grouse Shooting EitraorUinary-Promisefl Grand Eihihition of Noted Mon tana Wonders—Judge Mc Guire to Lecture m Con nection There with. [correspondence of the herald.J Boxeman, September 29, 1883.—The Japanese Tea Party, given last night by the ladies of the Episcopal Church, was a most pronounced success. The effort toward an impersonation in dress and man ner of the habits of these Oriental neighbors was completely realized, and to the unini tiated beholder it looked like a glimpse into a Yeddo hall room. The costumes were of every conceivable variety, and the preponderance of bright colors gave the assemblage a very gaudy appearance. The refreshments provided were of the most tempting character. Tea of every descrip tion was served from the dantiest China and by the prettiest of girls, which even the outlandish dress of Japan could not obscure. Among the ladies whose costumes were most notable, the following are men tioned: Miss Paddock, Miss Eastman, Mrs. D. T. Sherman, Mrs. M. M. Black, Miss Pinney. Mrs. Dr. Monroe and Mrs. Lundwall. The entertainment will be re membered as one of the pleasantest re unions ever held in Bozeman. Phil. Rountree and Dr. Carroll have just come in from the biggest grouse shoot of the season. Between sunrise and sunset they bagged ninety-seven birds, and they say it was an "off day" for grouse at that. Judge H. N. Maguire, who has been lo cated by his brethren of the press at vari ous points without consulting his own preference iu the matter, has at last accepted an öfter to lecture this win ter, first in Montana, then iu the Pacific States and other Territories, and afterwards iu the Eastern cities, in connection with Calfee's new scenic exhi bition of "Noted Wonders in Montana.'' It will undoubtedly he one of the finest en tertainments of the kind ever brought out in America. His apparatus is the best that could be procured iu the Parisian markets, and many of the views have been executed by foreign artists of high repute. The maps, drawings, etc., are all first class, and with the Judge at its head we can safely predict a brilliant success. The first entertain ment will he given in Helena. Box EM AX, October 1, 1883.—A cold, dreary rain storm began last night,and at present shows no sign of abatement. Should it continue 24 hour longer the races will he a failure, as the mud is already two inches deep on the track. Every one feels bine over the outlook. The Courier has made a change on its editorial staff, Mr. Mills retiring in favor of a "tenderfoot" journalist from Akron, Ohio. Mr. Mills will probably leave for Deer Lodge to take a position with his brother. The "Stella Mining Co.," with a capital of $200,000, whose main office is located at Livingston, have just placed tlieir arti cles of incorporation on tile at the court house. The reduction of postage creates a gener al sentiment of satisfaction, and more letters were mailed to-day than ever before in the history of the office. Au art gallery with the lottery attach ment has just opened up in the store recent ly occupied by Schriner & Son. The pictures are a low order of chromos, and the prices realized are exhorhitant. A gentleman by the name of Lowell, who was engaged iu the saloon business, has mysteriously disappeared. His partner mourns his absence to the tune of $3,000. The firm of lines & Armstrong, attorneys, have dissolved. Mr. Imes continues the business. Yesterday church attendance was very large. Among the hotel arrivals Suuday are the following stopping at the Eastman House : Gus. Lipman, New York ; A. Field, San Francisco ; J. W. Graham, Portland ; John Hamilton, Jos. Whitney and R. S. Hughes, Helena, and B. C. Kughsburgh, Butte. Boxemax, October 2, 1883.—To-day the sun shines out warm and bright, and the races will come off as advertised, much to the satisfaction of the sporting fraternity, who were very despondent during the long continued rain storm. The land office officials of late have had their time occupied day and night over contested land cases, the contestants com ing from Billings and vicinity. The working forces in the Bozeman coal mines will soon be greatly increased. Sev enty-live men are now employed. Bozeman points with pride to eight miles of new plank side-walk built since spring, and to streets well paved with gravel and macadam. A daily newspaper, with a stock com pany composed of prominent business men and a franchise from the Associated Press for telegraphic news, is one of the projects ' talked of." A fine specimen of turquoise has been discovered two miles south of the city. The street railway project comes to the surface occasionally, but the indications are that all work of a practical character will be postponed until next spring. A new project is on foot at Livingston. It is the organization of the National Park Dairy and Land Improvement Co. The articles of incorporation will be filed the coming week. The purpose of the com pany is dairying on a large scale. Five thonsand cows will be placed on their dairy reservation next spring. The manag ment of affairs will be under the personal supervision of an experienced Orange county, N. Y., dairyman. Major Heller, former agent of the Crow to. : Indians, and more recently a prosperous j merchant in one of the little towns near I Columbus, Ohio, is iu Bozeman to see j old friends and note the marvelous I changes that time brings about. The last enlargement of the Herald is great!}' appreciated by its Bozeman patrons, who pronounce it a better medium for their home news than even the local papeis. A lecture course association is being talked of, and will, iu all likelihood, he organized before cold weather sets iu. There is a larger acreage of winter wheat this year than ever before. Experience demonstrates it as much more certain than that sown in the spring. A ranchman, ten miles from Bozeman, on the West Gallatin, reports the discovery of a quarry of red sandstone, which ex perts pronounce fully as fine as that found iu Wisconsin on the shores of Lake Supe rior. Dr. Lamme's new brick block, adjoining the Northern Pacific Hotel, is receiving its finishing touches. It will he a very hand some block. Four arrests were made this afternoon, one for being drunk and disorderly, and three for carrying concealed weapons. They will have a hearing before Judge Davis to morrow morning. C. T, Howard and John Collins, from Butte, are stopping at the Eastman House. BR EVIT IES. —Northern Pacific stock in New York to-day, 33]. —A situation is wanted by a young man.
