WM LARF.Af Oil Tlieir Reservation. From a deer hunter who is in this morn ing from Nevlilffi creek 'West Side we : learn that there are several lodges of In-| dian- presumably Flatheads) on Nevada creek hunting and slaying deer. These In- ; dians as well as all other- in Montana, cannot leave their reservation without vio lât iig the law. It is known by all hunters that when a band of Indians camp on the deei trails, it amounts to a slaughter, and that they so surround the game that lew escape. Major Ronan. F. S. Indian agent oi the Flatheads, was so obliging last fall j that as soon as lie was apprised that his Indians wereofl' their reservation and hunt ing deer near Fyon's Hill, he -eut a mes- | senger and called them l»u< k.

I - The presence in Helena for the past tew days of Mr. Harvie, of the Livingston Enterprise is explained by overtures said i to have Wen made by Mr. Toole for the ' support of that |>a[ier in the Delegate con test. Jt transpires that an impediment to the negotiations is Mr. Wright, one of the proprietors oi the Enterprise, and to placate or get rid of that gentleman and place the paper on an incorporation basis and subject to the requirements of Mr. Toole are mat ters of some diplomatic difficulty. How ever. it is understood from Democratic sources that the negotiations are in a fair way of consommation, and that the "press fund " to the necessary extent will present ly he drawu upon and the Enterprise wheeled into line. The sums already in vested in the uewly established organs and for those secured by direct purchase is rumored to reach into the thousands, and it seems but reasonable that the sacrifice demanded by the Livingston paper should lie projiortionately compensated. The "ho -ses" should be brought to terms or the bargain declared off. s«* pa rating Silver and Gold. A Herald reporter this morning called at the assay office of C. E. Kempt, on Ed ward street, and was present during the process of separating gold aDd silver held i in solution. The following is the manner ■ iu which it was done : Three parts of silver is required to one ' Iiart of gold in order to lie separated by I nitric acid. The gold is precipitated to the bottou of the ves-el in small black parti cles resembling black sand, and the silver goes into solution with the nitric acid, forming nitrate of silver, and when thus in solution is a clear, transparent iluid, anil the silver, although a heavy, opaque and lustrous metal, is entirely invisible and to all huinau appearances entirely destroyed. the bottom of the vessel like snow Jakes. The water is poured oil aud the chloride of silver thus obtained is mixed with car bonate of soda and melted in a crucible, the soda combining with the chlorine and setting the silver free and reducing it to its original metalie condition without any loss of silver. The gold precipitated by the action of the acid is also melted iu a crucible with soda and reduced to its metalic condition free from silver. Firsl in (lie Field. Our Welch fellow citizens are the first to form a Republican club, a considerable number meeting for that purpose yester day (Monday evening. Organization was eflected by the election of Thos. J. Jones president, Evan D. Owen vice president and R. Jones secretary. By resolution the Re pu blicau local and Territorial candidates and platform were endorsed and a com mittee of five was appointed to meet this evening to arrange the working program me of the club. The membership promises to be large. The Convention. , J I Yellowstone Journal, j The Republican Territorial Convention of 1886 was in many respects a notable gath ering. The largest, tbe most thoroughly representative, and tbe most determined in its efforts, it yet conducted the most ex citing contest ever known in the history of Republican politics in the Territory, with out a suspicion of rancor or a shadow of disappointment or ill-feeling at the result. There were men of settled convictions there, and they upheld those convictions to the end, but the underlying question with each delegate and each delegation was, Who is the strongest candidate we can put up? The personality of the man, except as related to his strength as a ean didate, was nowhere discussed or c on »idered. AS ATTRACTIVE EXHIBIT. Wlmt the Northern Pacitie is Showing nt .Minneapolis. Gne of the most attractive displays at the Minneapolis Exposition is the exhibit made by the Northern Pacific railroad, says a correspondent. It embraces a col lection of unusually fine samples of agri cultural and vegetable products, specimens of rich minerals, native woods, building stone, brick, tile and coal, anil samples of fruits from the several States and Terri tories traversed by the road. The exhibit, tastefully decorated with golden grains and grasses, occupies a conspicuous space on the second door in the center of the Ex. po-ition building, fronting the grand foun tain and rockery. Wheat, oats, barley, rye and tiax in the straw are shown in great abundance and comprise the varieties grown in Minnesota. North Dakota, Mon tana, Idaho, Washington and Oregon. The native and cultivated grasses from these regions are exhibited in great variety and of luxuriant growth, including clover, timothy, alfalfa, red top, blue stem, buffalo and bunch grass. Some oi the samples of wheat aud oats in the straw stand nearly seven feet high, aud samples ol timothy stand over seven leet high, with heads measuring over eleven inches in length. Among the samples of wheat are the ! Scotch fife, Saskatchewan, little club, Aus tralian club, mammoth, peerless, seven rowed, golden anil purple velvet, black African, defiance, white Russian, amber, Egyptian, and white Australian. The mineral specimens are from the mining districts iu Montana, Washington, Idaho and the Fake Superior regions. The fruits are exceptionally tine, and include sam ples of apples and grapes from Min nesota. apples from Montana, aud apples, jiears peaches, plums apricots, prunes and grapes from Washington and ! Oregon. There are large spec imens of coal from the coal mines aloug the road, petri ' lied wood from the Bad Lands, line sam ples of wool from North Dakota, Montana. Washington and » »regou. samples of sugar lroiu the sugar beer, and medicinal salts from the waters of Medical Fake, iu Wash ington Territory. Samples of the native woods from the forests along the road are shown iu great variety, among which stands a segment of a Douglas fir tree from Puget Sound, Washington, eight feet in di ameter. with bark five inches thick, and planks lrom the Puget Sound fir .'>2 inches wide and 1* feet long. The ornamental woods shown in the exhibit are notably line. The magnificent and artistic display stand on which the fruits are placed on ex hibit, was built in Oregon from the orna mental woods growing in Oregon and Washington Territory. The stand was brought from the general land office of the ! Northern Pacific Railroad Company in Portland, Ore., for use at the Minneapolis I Exposition. The samples of threshed ! grains, consisting of '"No. 1 hard " spring wheat from Minnesota and North Dakota, the various soft varieties of wheat, and oats, barley, rye and flax, grown along the line of the Northern Pacific, are displayed by the .sack. The samples of vegetables are large and fine. Potatoes from Mon tana over two pounds in weight and which j had not attained their full growth when ' gathered, assert their claim to notice. The preserved fruits, comprising surprisingly large pears, peaches, plums, strawberries, gooselierries and prunes, put up in Wash ington Territory and Oregon, are much admired, especially by the ladies : and the hops from the Pupal lup valley, prepared by Mr. E. Meeker, of Washington Territory, are unusually large and of fine quality. The display of fruits ! by Senfert Brothers, fruit growers at The Dalles, on the Columbia river, Oregon, tempt the palate ot all who view them. 1 The splendid samples of agricultural pro ducts, contributed by citizens from various points along the line of the Northern Pa | cilic railroad for display at this exhibit, ; bear evidence of the highly productive qualities 0 f the soil of the regions tra I versed by the line, while the -pecimens of ! the precious metals, native woods, coal, copper and iron show that that this fruit j f u i |^it of country is favored with wonder j f u ]iy r j c h natural resources. The exhibit attracts the general attention of visitors to the exposition, and eve^y farmer will lind a careful inspection of the display liotli interesting and instructive. The Northern Pacific railroad had an equally fine exhibit at the Minnesota »State fair last week, and the judges selected to in spect the railroad exhibits at the fair grounds awarded the first premium and gold medal to the Northern Pacific for the liest exhibits of product* displayed at the fair. 1 W .

The whole turn out is the prettiest ever seen on onr street*, and Fannie and Altie Child will be much envied by their young friends I here on account of its possession. Mr. M. L. Et lunch, now in the city with his brother George, put up the first log cabin on the site of Helena, in the fall of 1SG4. The cabin was between Water and Joliet streets, in the south part of the j city. Cal. Clawson and George Horner occupied the cabin with the Balfinch boys. The old settlers couting back can hardly find the sites of their old claims. They little thought there would he .any value to ! their claims after the gold dust was taken ont. John Zeigler is still a resident of the city, who helped put up that first log cabin. Helena and its Horse Car*. When a city reaches a certain stage of 1 progress it becomes necessary that it should have a horse car line. Helena has evi ; dently reached this point, for the tracks ! are laid in onr midst and merely await the cars for the company to liegin opera- I I tions. These have just arrived from the I Pullman car company, and are models of comfortable horse cars. They are fitted up with all the latest conveniences in use u pon the horse cars in the East, and each one is a r ecimen of the Pullman com pany's finest work. They are c omfortably cushioned and hung in such a way that the many curves on lower Main street will be passed without a jolt. The company have purchased some ten head of horses and have engaged their drivers. The cars will be bronght up from the station with out delay and w ill Tie running in all proba bility by the end of this week or the be ginning of next. Besides the car honse, which is being built at the upper end of Main street and which has a capacity of four car«, the company is about to bnild a stable to hold twenty-four horses. Bids are in for the contract for this building, and work will be begun at once. ; ! j ! j j I : j I« success in an honorable profession an | ' objection to i>olitical preferment ?
