Dillon, Montana, Junk io, 1 SS 7 . r.LEHUALK I.KTTKK. A letter Delayed by the "Meanley" High Water—The Hotel Change* Hand* A Chapter of Accident*. Glendale, June 1, 1887. To the Kditor of the Dillon Thibunk: "Here's a pretty how do you do." The mail goes out two hours earlier than usual, al on account of the high water. Our mail lias to go down to Glen station. The telephone line is down, and the devil to pay genejally. Henry Neill has sold out his hotel to Alonzo Leonidas Pickett and the latter is making changes throughout the whole house and will make it first-class in every particular. when the bar room is finished it will be a daisy. Prof. Bergtnan is doing himself proud in the artistic line, and in the decoration line, Win. Kimball is out doing himself. Mrs. Lemon has sold out her restaurant and lodging house to Mrs. Clark M. •S holes. Our Moike having discovered that lie cannot play whist a little bit, lias deter mined to devote his attention to the con stable business in the future. On the night of the 30th, ult., Jos. La bouchre, while "under the influence of the ardent," was "garroted and rolled," and a fearful gash was cut hi th • back part of his head. He did not recognize his assail ants. On the 30th, ult., Kobt. Miller was thrown from his horse and dragged for some distance, resulting in a scratched lace and a dislocated jaw. On last Sunday afternoon Fred, Arbour,* while upon Lion mountain,invited his wife and Mrs. Papa to take a ride down the tramway witii him. Everything went well until they struck the steep pitch, just above Greenwood, when the speed of the car be came so great that Fred must have got scaredand turned the brake the wrong way, and the car jumped the track and threw Fred and Mrs. Papa against the timbers of the snow shed. The latter was rendered unconscious and remained so for two hours, but is now much better. Or. Janies L. Jones was called in to attend lier case and reports lier on the mend. Fred Arbour received a deep cut in his forehead and lias not as yet (Wednesday) fully re covered his consciousness.. Or. Raymond Mitchell is attending upon him and re ports tunic improvement. Mrs. Arbour only received a slight scratch on the face. All these parties can "thank their stars" that they got oil' as lucky as they did. The wonder is that one of them was left to tell the story story. 1 understand that the Viponds have struck a four foot vein of good ore, on the extension of the Grey Jockey lotie. They are very much elated over the ne.w strike. This is one of the ninny mines that Gen'l Jos. A. Browne is interested in, in Vipond milling district. Claud Huy is over to-day, from Dewey's Flat, and footed it nil the way. He reports one pier of the bridge, this side of the Flat, gone and that the others will go out ns they eannot stand the strain. Isn't it about time for the commissioners of this county to consider the feasibility of build ing a road from Canyon creek up the liver to join the Dewey's Flat grade? The Hay's stamp mill is shut down on account of high water. The Churchill grade, just above the Flat, is under water to such an extent that the old trail over the mountains lias to be used. 1 understand that A. M. Leabo will round up a lot of bears next week, and have a grand limit for the amusement of the boys. A. M. Leabo carries the mail from tiie Divide to Wisdom, and he is like the bed hug, low or high water, he "gets there all the same." /.. * if of is UIO HOLE HASIN.

T., June 6, To »tie Editor of l!»r Dillon Thiui-nk We are having line weather now and the mosquitoes are getting very affection ate in showing their bills. The river is still rising and Noyes' bridge is expected to go down stream at any moment. Charles Schatzkin, of Butte, is in the Basin looking after his cattle interests. Several of our worthy citizens called upon W. W. Bentley and Matt Waldherr for the purpose effecting a compromise in regard to the land which was in controver sy. This is the first land trouble that has happened in the Basm and much credit is bestowed on Mr. Frazer for settling the ■natter satisfactorily to those concerned. It is hoped no further trouble may occur in any more such cases, as there is land enough here left yet without disproving any one s claim. James Montgomery arrived in the Basin a last week and will take charge 6f the dairy at the Home Park ranch. The firm has been to considerable outlay in getting the latest conveniences and appliances and will ! devote their attention to making only first! class butter, of which Mr. Montgomery j understands the business. j Mrs. Wampler has returned from Butte where she went to attend the wedding of j 4 her sister, which took place some time 1 * e " A1 . j.

The Tn»enroru and Golden Era Companies Making Things Hum—Numerous Improvement* lletng Mud« About the Camp. Argenta, June 6, 18S7. Heavy Irosts, the past week, killed lots of garden "truck." Our butcher disposed of three beeves ist week; the trade is still increasing. One ton of lead ore taken from the west shaft of the Gladstone mine, on Friday, am pled $300 in gold. Col. Lockhart, of Kingston, N. M., was ( _ n town Sunday, inspecting the different j' mining properties of Scott A; (»«Higher. Bray and McMillan are putting up a commodious house near the Gladstone mine and will soon have things in readi ness to put a force of men to work. Geo. Perkins, who recently purchased the Kearney property has thoroughly ren ovated the same and is making many valu able improvements which renders it very attractive. J. T. Ross is binding a new house on Main street and is planting trees and small fruits, When the lot is enclosed with a nice fence it will be one of the prettiest lo cations in town. Quite a number of houses have been put up lately at the St. Louis Co.'s works and the people there and at the Springs are wanting a postofticc. The new town has been christened Goldburg. The machinery for the Golden Kra and Rena mines has arrived and is in place and work is carried steadily on. The boarding house for the same company is running now in perfect order. The genial Supt. McDonnell can he seen closely in specting everything connected with the works. it g; I to ! i The Tuscarora company have purchased the Mark Bray millsite for $500, and will erect a concentrator on the same. This is in a flourishing condition, this past week having shipped one car-load of bullion valued at $4,000. The new manager, I'rof. Carl Hendrick, thoroughly under stands his business, and is pushing matters with a steady hand. Some of our most enterprising citizens have clubbed together and are removing the rocks from Main street. This is very commendable and improves the looks of the place very much. If every one would sec to it that tin cans, dirt and trash of all kinds tint have been accumulating for ages, about his premises were removed, and that shade trees were set out, our town would soon present an inviting appear ance. SI1KRIDAN. "lko" Rise* ansi Explains—Tin- Noble Min ing Co'* Operation*— Tribute to a faithful Tearher Ml*rel laneou* Mutter* Sheridan, Mont., June 6, 18S7. In tin- Kditor ot the Tkiiu-nb: The want of lime and the affairs of man have prevented me from keeping you posted upon the progress of our pros pective mining boom ; the good chances farmers have for fine crops; the stock men's happy condition, in consequence of the fine feed the foot hills are producing, and many other items that would have been interesting to your readers. The most impôt tant event of recent oc curence was the taking possession of the Co. mine, or at least a part of it, by a St. Louis Co. some three or four weeks ago. The company has several men at work in the different levels of the mine straighten ing them up for extensive development, and still others; in the slopes taking out quartz, which they will commence hand ling pretty soon, ar-rf then start their io stamp mill. C. S. Batterman, supt. of the work, is a young man of considerable ex perience In that line of business, I under stand, having tecently come from Arizona Tv., where has been similarly engaged for several years; and being a native Califor nian, where his experience in mining was somewhat extended, wo confidently expect good results from his work here. R. W. Noble is assistant superintendent, and the company did well in selecting him to that position; his extended experience in work mg this mine specially fits him for the work before him. and I think Mr. It will find in him a valuable assistant. " itli I proper management the enterprise must he a success. Hall & Rossiter and R.

Gorden, who lias had charge ot it t ce the middle of last November, has labored most faithfully to make her work ef tnf, and so far as her health has per mitted, she has done her work well; in fact, she has done much better than was expected by those who knew the work she had to do. She was tired out when the school closed, but the children were so anxious to give an entertainment that she stayed two weeks longer and trained them for it anil they did splendidly. The lute ness .»1 ' he hour of commencing made it imposs.ole to carry out the entire pro g; ..I Our school will commence again in September, 1 believe, hut by whom I am not interned.
