"When shall we three meet again?"-Rickards, Wittier and ll akeley. "No Surrender" was the watch v;r.l and so they ingloriously "died :n the last ditch." It must have cost the runaway' cnuator., since the biginning of the session, a cool thousand each, and the question is, who footed the hills? But perhaps we are getting too in quisitive. If this should meet the eyes of William Parberry, W. S. Becker, Dan'l J. Hennesy, C. J. McNamara, Win. M. Thornton, C. W. IHoffman, J. A. Baker and R. G. RIdd, they j can hear of something to their ad- I vantage by addressing our applyitgI in person to Liver Eating Johnson, I lRed Lodge, Mon:tana. J It now seems possible thst I ilcolt, the absconding cashier of the Ser- t geant-at-Ariis of the "ationel Iouse of Representatives, was not so much to blame after all. Hisl fe et had become so ofitnsive. even i to himself, that a change of climate 1 was absolutely necessary. lIe is i now reported to be circulatingl among the web-feet, trying the vir- i the of Oregon mud, as a deodorizeri, e on his lower extremities. t DEMOCRIATIC UT I'E IANCES. B13y Col. Dani): l Seatirles ill tlie Looking back over the past niue ty days, do Jack and Hall and Sanders et al., think state stealing pays? Before another election for mein - h!rs of the legislature takes place 1 in this state there uwill be such a tfood of light thrown upon pr -in t I 34 that the state stealers and their ii r'ump allies will be compelled to L retire to that political obscurity which they have so richly earned. Hasten the day. ic The Helenea Journal professes to p see rape, arsoll, murder and all A the other crimes know to the crimi- tl nal calender in three or four cart- 13 ridges which some conscienclcss rump placed in the desk of one of p the members of the house after h that body adjurned.

The contractors will take their pay in stock in the mine. The Manitoba Mining company has been organized for the purpose of developing the Manitoba lode and two adjoining claims in the Neihart district. It is the iuten oiln to run a tunnel that will t:p the vein at a depth of about 500 feet. The Iron Mountain Extention Mining company of Missoula coun ty hals been incorporated with a capital of $250,000 in $50,000 shares of $5 each. The incorpora tors are all Missoula men. A Butte property owner makes a public protest against a class of men who are making quartz locations on the patented placer claims around Butte. The gentlemen who enters the protest asserts these late day locations are made for the lu' pose of blackmail. The Southern Cross mine, in the Georgetown district, is developed to a depth of 250 feet and the ledge at that point is thirty feet wide. The company will shortly put up a mill of its own and those well ac quainted with the property predict the early payment of dividends. Lewistowmn News. Fergus ('o uniy Argu,. The Fergus County Argus wants a flouring mill at Lewistown. The enterprising people of that town usually get what they want. Van Spalding and Jack Rowley, accompanied by their wives, carme in frontom McDonald creek last week to attond the masquerade party. Mr. Rowley says he never saw cattle looking better in that part 'f the country. Tihe snow storma .on Sunday, if it extends to that region, will also improve matters. [ei as the old snow was scarce and frozen hard. Though cattle had Sd not suffered for watter, they might if it did not soften up or a fresh fall of sno» colie. h Led! witown and Missoul:i will d soon have land offices.
