"It still nmoves" SoGalileo said of earth
in the teetih of the Ilquisitioaists, and so
we say of the Peniteatiary business, despite
nill appearances to the contrary. Dr. A. 11.
Mitchell, Commissioner, has received in
structions from the Secretary of Interior to
proceed at once with preliminaries looking
to the immediate construction of the build
ing, as provided for by the Acts of Con
grass and the Montana Legislature. The
pI'ns, elevations and conditional slpecific
lions are forwarded, and the detailed specl
feations of the Commissioner, in accordance
therewith, are being prepared, which being
apl'roved by the 4cecret.try, will be advca
ti/ed for proposals from builders. It iscon
template'l the wing now to be built shall be
dcuptiletcd in six months from time of com
wlencement. The Plan, as forwarded, is
'nlmpoied of a central building 80x86 feet
8:1 feet high. with two wings, each 70x44 feet.
Only one wing will be built at present. As
ishowing the general character of the build
ing, we are permitted by Dr. Mitchell to
sumnaurize the following from the specifca
thins of the kecretary. The wing will be 70
fouet 2 inches by 44 feet 4 Inches from out to
out; to contain 42 cells each 6x8 feet and 8
feet high in the clear; these cells to be in
three tiers-14 in each-one cell in each sto
ry to used as a bath room, etc.; the two up
per stories to be approached by an iron stair
way an:d galleries. The excavation of
teteches for all walls to be at least 8 feet
below ground line, and so much farther as
n~r b necessary to reach solid foundation.
All foundation and extension walls to be of
rubtle masonry of the best bulding stone in
the vicinity; corners coined, window hacras
arched; all walls above surface double.
faced, and window sills of split stone, The
cell walls to be of best quality of brick laid
in cement mortar; cells to be paved with
brick, cement or flagging stones; sell doors
to be of 2 inch by 1) inch iron, crossed and
riveted, with four inch openings; iron imr.
posts in windows; frou bars in lower half
one inch in diameter and not to exceed five
Inches apart. The two tiers of galleries to
have iron stairwanys, brackets and railing.
The roof ia to be covered with I. C. tin. The
The entli front, as projected, Is 170 feet,
but only the west wing will now be built.
There are quarries of excellent stone and
good clay for brick in the mmeodiate vicinity
of Doer I4odge. Owing to the drouth, labor
is far below what It will be next season;
the Territorial prison is needed to provide
for the secure and economical keeping of
prisoners, who are now quartered in and upon
the several counties at heavy expense to
them, All things render it desirable that
this work should be proceeded with at once,
and now that Mr. Cavanaugh is in Washing
ton, and has induced the e to- ra
Lion, we uit ti MllewW
taned e chimera
jaf lNmsoDan central to the several Ter
ritores.We anticipate soon being able to
state that the work has begun.
In another column will be found a car~
from Professor Steitz, asking for mining
statistics. We understand he has solicited
Mr. Granville Stuart of Deer Lodge, and
Hlon. Frank ILH. Woody of Mismoula, to com
pile statistics of their respective counties.
We are assured more competent persons
amiuld not have been selected, or those who
would have more ready assistance from the
m!ners. It is desirable that this informa
should be furnished to Mr. Steit,. and we
might as well state just here that the Mining
Commuissioners have been systematically
bilkihg Montana. The Government is pay
ing from $10,000 to $40,000 per annum for
tie preparation of these Reports-appropri
ating sums sufficient to enable the commis
sioners to visit each State and Territory
whereon they report. What has been the
result ? Mr. Taylor never visited Montana;
Mr. Langford furnished the statistics which
were cut down without shadowof reason, and
Taylor pocketed the appropriation. Mr. J.
Ross Browne had some $80,000 or $40,000
appropriated for the same purpose. He
never visited Montana. He sent Dr.
Blatchley on a flying trip through the
Territory, as the darkoy went through col
lege, and left Professor Keyes to make the
Report. Keyes gave the best geological re
port of the Territory ever written, but it
was not Browue's fault. Then Mr. Ray
mond was appointed last year. He traveled
over the Paclfic Coast region, and tarned up
I. New York, Siptoumber T7, without any
report of Montana, witbou' any Gove:nment
funds to pay for one, and the Report must
be in by the meeting of Congress in Decem
ber or the Territory be unrepresented. Pro
femsar Eaton, then in New York, volunteered
to have a preliminary report of Montana
prepwred in time, and with the gratuitous
assistance of Professor Keyes and Colonel
De Lacy, Montan again had the most valu
able papers in the Report, And now comes

Two American Statesmen of note hbave
died within the pest few days-William
Pitt leusenden, of Maine, and John Bell,
of Tenmasee.
Mr. Fessenden was born in New Hamp
shire in October 16, 1806. He graduated in
Bowdoln College and removed to Maine.
le was elected to the Legislature of that
State as a Whig when but 25 years of age.
From that time until 1839 he practiced law,
when he was returned to the Legislature,
and in 1840 elected to Congress. From that
until 1854 he practiced his profession, and
served two or three terms in the Legislature,
he being in the Legislature in '54, when the
Kansas-Nebraska question came up, and a1
though the body was Democratic he was
elected by them to the United States Senate
by a fusion of Whigs and Free Soll Demo
crats. He took his seat February 23, 1854,
and his speech on the Nebraska bill on the
:kl of March succeeding placed him in the
front rank of Senators. He was re-elected
in 1859, for six years. In 1864 he was
appointed Secretary of the Treasury, suc
ceeding Mr. Chase, and in 1865 was returned
to the Senate. He has for years been re
garded as one of the greatest statesmen and
best financiers in the Senate. He occupied
for many years the leading position on the
Committee of Finance. le cast one of the
seven votes against impeachment of Andrew
Johnson. iHe and Senator Trumbull wers
the orly ones of the seven who had ability
and character sufficient to suecessfully meet
the storm of popular resentment against that
act. They saved the Presidency to Grant
by it, but it was not seen in that light then.
John Bell, of Tennessee, a man of not
less ability and force than Fessenden, died
full of years-verging on 78. He was born
in Tennessee February 18, 1797. He stud
let! !aw and was elected to the State Senate
at the age of 20. He was elected to Con
gress as a Democrat in 1848, and served 14
successive years in the House, being elected
to the Speakership in 1884 against James K.
Polt. He presented the anomaly of being
a strong Calhounist, opposed to nullifeation.
In 1885 he quarreled with Jackson, went
before bhis constituents. and was returned as
a Whig. He alone of all the Tennessee del
egates favored the abolition of slavery in
the District. In 1841 heaceepted the tender
of the War Department from President Har
rison, but shortly resigned. In 1847 he was
elected to the Senate and was re-elected in
1859. In the issues that came up prior to
the war he took sides with the Southern
Senators, and in 1860 he was on the Ameri
can, Bell and Everett, ticket for the Presi
denrcy. That ended his public career.
Our Missoula correspondent asks when the
government surveys are tobe extenderd there.

The mound is over forty feet high. It stands in the
midst of a perfectly level valley; and the hot spring on
its summit, during the greater prtle eof the year,
sends up a heavy volume of vapor, rendering It a con
spicuous object for from twenty to fifty miles In every
direction. It bears, In the distance, a striking resem
blance to an Indian lodge with the smoke ascending
from it. Through all the traditions a the Indians,
the valley has been famous for the plentitude and fat

It is eighteen miles distant from Doer Lodge City, on
the left bank and at a mile's distance from the river.
The natural rod to it Is unexeelled in all America.
We had the pleasure of visitlng it a few days since in
company with Mr. Granville Stuart, Dr. A. IL Mitch
lil, Mr. Louis Keyser and Dr. J. P. Adams-and the
trip was not lessened in stIractiveness by thecompany.
The Mound is situated about two hundred yards north
of Warm Spring Croeek, and Is In the center of a tile
swamp some sixty or seventy acre In extent, only
passable over one or two paths. Its hight above the
surrounding swamps is forty or forty-five fest; the
base diameter on the terrace that surrounds it, cue
hundred and thirty-ds feet, it having the shape of a
Inverted table bowl, with a gently rounded top ea

and ferruglnous tufa, a deposit of matter held In solu
tion by the hot water which in overflowng from the
summit has formed it in concentric, corrugated and
foliated layers, varying rom two to eiglht inches in
thickness. The crystalizatlon of this deposit isalways
at right angles with the plane of depoeition, and the
rock is extremely friable. It it are to be load large
pieces of pure carbonate of Iron. On some portions,
and especially on top, there is bright vegetation grow
