Tlie Figures of the Current Year Com pared With Years of the Past. The Value of Taxable Properly Has More Thun Tripled In a Decade. stock men. The labor of the Board of Correction for this year, in carefully over The assessment roll of Beaverhead County for the current year comes nearly up to the estimate made heretofore. As sessor Pickett has turned over the assess ment roll book to County Clerk McGough who is busily engaged in preparing it to turn over to Treasurer Wing from which he will collect the taxes for the present year. The roll foots up, for 18S7, $2.903.760 and compared with last year's assessment it shows an increase in the valuation of the taxable property of the county for this year of $147,'64. This exhiDit is good, consid ering the unprecedented losses in stock during the year,especially in the returns of cattle and horses. In making up for loss of stock the advance in the prices of real es tate and town tots was relied upon, and the city lots of Dillon and the farming land In the valley contributed largely toward balancing the losses sustained by our Th<j complet|on and OCC upancv of the large and elegant brick block on the corner I ot - Montana and Helena streets, adds the finegt ed jß ce to Dillon that has yet been erected j n the city for business purposes hauling the assessments of seven hundred and fifty tax payers, did much toward ac complishing a close result. The following table of the yearly assessment of the coun ty for the past ten years presents interest ing figures, snowing that for a decade the increase in the value of the taxable proper ty has been $1,925.770—or an average in crease of nearly $200,000 a year: 1878 ......... .............$ 977.990 1879 ..............*........1,029,596 1880 ............'..........1,470,034 1881 .......................1,762,877 1SS2.......................1,762,591 18S3................... 2,198,006 1S84.............. 2,674,094 1885 .......................2,560,410 1886 .......................2,756,496 I 1S87.......................2,903,760 From the above figures it will be readily seen that in ten years the county's assess ment has more than tripled in amount— raising from less than $1,000,000 in 1S7S to nearly $3.000,000 in 18S7. If a county or country triples its assessable wealth in ten years it is a sure, incontrovertible cri terion that the people are prosperous, and a gradual and permanent increase in valu ations indicates unmistakably that the pros perity is not due to any temporary, mush room boom without bottom or stability Such a showing is exceedingly gratifying, as it is an undisputably evidence that Bea verhead County's prosperity rests upon a solid foundation. stitute dav, Miss as and E.

The railroad company receipts at Dillon are now averaging, from passengers and freights shipped and receiv ed, $25,000 per month or $300,000 a year, No other town on the line, except those mentioned, affords the company a like amount of business, and when the impor tance of Dillon Is properly weighed would seem that the railroad company should favor this point in preference to jther places. Dillon is to receive a deli cate railroad deal on or about the 13th inst when a change of time of the up-bound passenger train will take place. After the 13th the passenger train for Butte will ar rive daily at Dillon at 5.45 p. m., and stop long enough for the passengers to get sup per.
