President Willard 1 ill Have a Line to Renton-The Cerem onles Over the CVenpltion of the N.P. [Special telegram to the RECORD.] HErIENA, September 10, 1883. Between 3,000 and 5,000 people witness ed the spike driving ceremonies Saturday near the mouth of Gold creek, fifty-five miles west of Helena. Forty Pullman loads of guests were with Villard. The visiting parties' train came from Portland and train loads went both from Helena and Butte. BENTON WAS REPRESENTED by Messrs. C. E. Conrad, Sullivan, Col lins, Cummings and Gibson. At the point where the ceremonies were performed a mammoth frame pavillion, capable of seat ing about 2,000 people, was erected north of and faicing the spot. In this the foreign and eastern guests were seated, while Montanians stood on the other side of the track while the spike was driven. Ad dresses were lelivered by Villard, Evarts, Secretary Teller, Ex-President Billings, the English Minister, Lionel Sackville West, the German Minister, Von Eisin decker, Gen. Grant, the Governors of Wis., Minnesota, Dakota, Montana, Oregon, Washington and two or three of the foreign guests. After the speech-making was over AN EXHIBITION of track laying was given. One thousand feet of track had been taken up extending on both sides of the pavellion. A loop switch was put in around this gap and on this the excursion trains stood. Gangs of track layers were stationed at each side of the gap and at a signal commenced a track laying race for the centre, the time re quired for laying the thousand feet being little over seven minutes. The finish was made amid great commotion, cheers, firing of cannon and playing of lbands. TIIE LAST SPIKE was not of gold, as originally intended, but of iron. It was the identical spike which was the first driven at the commencement of the road building. P. C. D)avis, as general passenger agent, wielded the sledge on both occasions. Villard, Grant, Evarts, John Bull, chief of the Crows, and several others also hit the spike a lick. The point at wJiich it is driven is 1,119 miles from Lake Superior, aild 827 miles from Portland. The party in passing west did not stop in Helena to visit the Fair, and consequently did not get to see CIIOTEAU COUNTY'S and our city's fine exhibition. President V'illard was called upon at the train by the Choteau representatives who talked with him half an hour about the require ments of Northern Montana, and of Ben ton's urgent need of a railroad. They also presented him with documents con taining facts and figures in relative to their county, its products, resources, business and population. Villard was much in- terested and assured the committee that he would furnish Benton with a branch road frn.n nither Helenaor Billings. but was not yet prepared to say when. He will examine the documents given him, and on his arrival at Portland will advise the committe more definitely. THE EMILY. Someth ing Abcut the Jlcst that Doing Such Good Work on the River. Yesterday a party went down the river to meet the little steamer Emily, which has become as well known in this section as the Great Eastern on the Atlan tic coasts. The Emily was found on the Shonkin bar, as busy a bee, trying to get off the sand into deep water. The party went aboard and spent some time in a most pleasant manner. The Emily has had a hard trip,but the intention of her officers to bring her to Benton or break her ribs on a sand bar, was' carried out. Her crew seemed to enjoy themselves,uotwithstand iug the hard work the festive sand bar made for them, with the possible exception of one erratic deck hand, who relieved himself of his pent up feelings in this way: Away out West where soda pop Is through the coulees flewing, Where buffalos graze upon the hills And summer winds are blowing, Where prairie dogs and coyotes howls Enough to make one shiver, have a job as watchman on The great Missouri river. Oh, lonesome, windy, barren place Where rattlesnakes prevail, And roasted mud hens raises cane Great Caesar, draw the veil! - And when our boat gets through her work And turns her head for home, I'll hie me back to Kalamazoo And never more will roam. The boys thought he wasn't well, but no sick man could make such exquisite poetry as that, even if lie did come from Kalama zoo, near the home of the Sweet Singer, Michigan's pride. There was every evi dence visible of the hard work the little boat has done and though she is not as handsome as she once was her officers take great pride in the scars she shows be cause, they say, she won them in a most honorable way in endeavoring to improve the condition of the watery road she will have to travel hereafter. The men who command the Emily are' gentlemen of ability and judgment and their work on the river this season shows better than any thing else what their capacity is. Captain Gould, an old-time river man, will take charge of the boat as soon as he can arrive here, and in the meantime, Capt. Bennett controls the vessel. There are eighteen men in the crew in addition to the engineers who are doing the river work. Captain Durage, who is in charge of the engineers, has been in the city for a day or two buying provisions and attend ing to private business. He states that he proposes to have the riverchannel in such condition next year that boats can come to Benton atany time except when the river J is frozen. A dredge boat will be abStruc tdtk as itrad put to work as iy as possible in the spring. There wiRhet im mense aupnttf work e on .i . river next year, provided- s the OWN&eary apirp l~;ro X I ht s $ w 16It_ JOHN T MURPHY E. . MACLAY. W. W. RHoem-. MURPHY, MACLAY & CO.

He gave orders to Captain Bennett to bring the boat here even if he had nothing but the smoke stacks left. Captain Ben nett obeyed the order perfectly, and the Emily hove in sight just after noon. She had a great deal of trouble in getting over the bar just below the city, but finally ac complished the task and anchored safely in port. She will remain here until to morrow night and then leave for down river points. She will be taken to Sioux City this winter, where a complete new set of machinery will be put into her, and the vessel thoroughly fitted up for next summer's campaign. THE RECORD is much pleased with Cap tain Durage's work this season and hopes no impediment may be placed in the way that will prevent the carrying out of the plans he has arranged for next year. The Captain and the Emily are very necessary to the interests ot the people of this section of the river country, and THE RECORD is sincere in its wish that they may remain to carry on the good work undteraken until it is fully accomplished. The Dead Pretender. PARIs, Sept. 3.-The remains of. Cham bord were conveyed from Frohsdorf to Walkerdorf, Snnday morning, and sent from there to Goritz in the evening. All the inhabitants of Frohsdorf accompanied the procession to the depot. The cortege consisted of a force of local volunteers and intimate friends of the deceased. The coffin was placed in a railway carriage draped in black. At Goritz the railway depot was heavily hung with black dra pery. In the streets through which the procession passed many black flags were displayed from public buildings and resi dences. A plaster cast and sketch of the body were taken as it lay in state. GoRrrs, Special Telegram, Sept. 3.-The refusal of the Orleans Princes to attend the obsequies of Chambord created con siderable sensation. Over 5,000 French men are here. Groups are forming to pre pare resolutions upon the death of the Count. Several royalist notables declare they will return to Paris forthwith, and some have already started. It is thought probable that the agitation may lead to some outward demonstration. It is stated that a large legitimist meeting will be held to examine the political situation and pre pare a manifesto in favor of the Count de Paris. KLEINSCHMIDT & B RO. Fort Benton.
