What a Reporter Picked Uip Con cerning it in a short Interview To-day. A reporter of THE RECORD fell in with Mr. E. C. Hall, a member of the Northern Transcontinental survey this afternoon and had a short but very enjoyable chat with him. The transcontinental survey is sent out by the Northern Pacific railway to report upon the resources of the north western country, and Mr. Hall has charge of a small party now located in the Judith Basin. The party came up from Bozeman along Shields river to Judith Gap, where they have been located for ten days or more. Their object is to ascertain every thing possible about the stock and other in terests and also to report upon the grazing qualities of the country contiguous to the Judith. Mr. Hall states that he will be in the Basin and vicinity until snow flies, and that a very thorough examination of the country will be made. So far as seen, he says, the Judith country has no superior for grazing purposes and offers every inducement to railway companies to build into it. He is highly pleased with the different portions of Montana he has examined and will make a most flattering report to head quarters. Ac Mr. Hall has been em ployed by the Government census bureau for some time in looking up the cattle and wool interests of the country, he is certain ly a very competent judge and his opinion of Northern Montana is valuable. When asked if he knew anything of the intentions of the Northern Pacific com pany concerning Montana Mr. Hall re plied, "Nothing official, of course. They may build in here at once or not at all. I heard in Washington recently, however, that it was the intention of the company to complete their main line before under taking ally branches. They will probably build from Wallula Junction, in Washing ington Territory, to some advantageous point on the coast at once, taking in the Yakima valley, on the Columbia river, one of the richest agricultural regions in the U'nion. The company has a large land grant up there and must have its line through very shortly in order to hold it. The valley is already quite thickly settled and offers great inducements to the com pany to build through it, in addition to saving the grant. After this line is com pleted other lines will be laid out and it is quite possible one may be run to Benton. This is only my personal opinion, how ever; I have no official information." Mr. Hall also stated that the Northern Pacific had seven parties out under charge of Professor Pumpelly to his knowledge, and thought perhaps there might be more. They are all busily engaged in looking over the prospects of Montana and other portions of the Northwest, and are making excellent reports. Montana, it seems, is the objective point of many rail ways, and the Northern Pacific is making haste to familiarize itself with the topo graphy and resources of the Territory in order to work intelligently hereafter. ·- -n - - The i 'tT ''.." * ..ý... ý ..... ý . .

BELL'S BLUNDER. A Colored mlan Takes a Spoonful of Croton Oil by Mlistake and Will Probably Die. A colored man named Robert Bell, who hasbeen employed by Frank Yard, Esq., for some three years and is well known in the city, took a dose of croton oil last eve ning which will probably send him over the range. It seems that Bell has been ailing for some time from injuries received by being thrown from a horse and has been taken care of by Mr. Yard. Yester day Mr. Yard went to a physician and pro cured certain medicines, among which was r. bottle of croton oil to be used as a lini ment. The doctor had been very careful in giving Bell directions as to how to use the liniment and, thinking everything under derstood, did not label the bottle when it was put up. When Bell received the medi cines from Mr. Yard, he said he fully un derstood how to use them and the latter paid no further attention to the matter for some time. Late last evening he droppec in to see Bell, who told him he 'had taken his medicine according to direction and was feeling easier. He acted a little flighty, however, and Mr. Yard asked him how he had taken it. Bell said he had taken a teaspoonful from the little bottle, but had left the other medicines untouched. Mr. Yard was considerably frightened, as he had every reason to be, and sought a physician at once. The doctor could scarcely credit the statement that Bell had" taken such an enormous quantity of croton oil and yet lived, but further examination showed such to have been the case. Bell suffered terribly for several hours and the opinion of the physician is that he cannot live long. He is resting quite easily at this writing, however. Bell had not fully recovered from the fall he received some time ago and had been suffering considerable pain. Mr. Yard thinks the pain made him more or lesq delirious and that he was not in a respon sible condition when he took the medicine. Bell has been a quiet, hardworking man for years, but of late has been taken care of by Mr. Yard on account of his inability to work and for past services. He has been on Mr. Yard's ranch for a time and was always steady and reliable. Gen. Grant was on hand at the N. P. celebration at St. Paul.

LARGE SALES. A Boom in Real Estate Which Prom ises to Develop into some thing Grand. As stated in THE RECORD yesterday there is a sudden desire shown by foreign parties to purchase real estate in Benton, especially since President Villard has ex pressed a determination to build a branch of the Northern Pacific railway to ,this city at an early day. In addition to sever al recent heavy purchases, Judge Tattan has just sold 400 lots in the reservation addition to the townsite of Fort Benton to Charles E. Conrad, whom, it is presum ed, is acting in the interest of friends of the Canadian Pacific directory. The lots are evidently purchased as a specu lation, but it is a pretty clear indication that Benton is on the road to still greater prominence. The rail road boom now being worked up is doing Benton a g deal of good and when a road is once built into the city, property will almost double in value. "It isn't best to get high toned, though," as a friend said to THE RECORD to-day, "and put the price of lots up to such a figure that no one can afford to buy. Property owners can well hold their property, but it is best to give every man who comes a chance to invest as his means will war rant. Every person who owns property in Benton will have plenty of opportuni ties to make money next year, and don't you forget it." Appropos of the sale made by Judge Tattan there still remains some 500 lots in the addition which should be dis posed of at once. If the school board dis poses of its property in the addition a $40, 000 school building will be erected next year which will be a great credit to the city. Every citizen who has a few dollars to spare should invest in lots and those who do can depend upon receiving immense returns. There will be a boom in real estate as soon as more definite information is received concern ing the N. P. branch and every wise man will secure as much as he can right now. "I'll bet ten to one," said the gen tleman whose remarks are quoted above, "that in a year from now you can't buy a lot in that addition at any price. You may think I'm joking, but I never was more sincere in a belief in my life." Ev ery one expresses the same opinion and THE RECORD is much pleased with the outlook. Horse Thief Captured. Sheriff McDevitt and Marshal Healy made quite an important capture last even ing, and one which reflects considerable credit upon their promptness and ability. Some time since sixteen horses were stolen m Godfrey Brothers' ranch at Judith Gap, and no trace of the thief or thieves could be discovered at the time the horses were taken. Every effort was made, how ever, and it was soon ascertained that the stock was being taken to Assinnaboine by a man named Harris. Pursuit was given were taken from him but he managed to make good his escape. Day before yester day Harris was seen to board the stage at the Coal Banks for Bentoa, and a telegram was sent to Sheriff McDevitt to that effect. The sheriff made preparations to give the man a becoming reception upon his arrival here, but when the stage drove up Harris was not visible. It was then learned that he had left the stage about a mile out of town, doubtless intending to deceive the officers by walking in. But McDevitt was a httle too "fly" for him. Hastily mount ing his horse and accompanied by Marshal Healy he started on the war path after his man. After considerable search the two officers discovered Harris in the hills just out of town and proceeded to take him in. He was brought to the city and at once placed in jail, where he will be held to await further word from the Godfrey Brothers or other interested parties. Har ris is about 30 years of age. fairly well dressed, and has been seen in this city be fore. He will probably pay dearly for his last-tiick. Charles Williams, alias Harris, the man who is charged by Godfrey Brothers with the theft of sixteen horses, was arraigned before Judge Kanouse this morning and pleaded not guilty. After trial he was bound over to the district court in the sum of $1,000. Failing to procure bail le was locked up and will remain in durance vile until the grand jury is empaneled and looks after his case. Godfrey Brothers have had a great deal of hard luck with their horses and, thinking they have suffi cient evidence to warrant it, will push th t case against Williams to the bitter end. NEW SADDLE HOVnsE. Win. Glassman, late of Roberts & Glassman, proprietors of the Cheyenne Saddler Shop, Helena, X. T., has purchased the business of L. H. Rosen crans of FortBenton. Mr. Glassman has a wide spread reputatior as a saddler and the following is a testimonial of some of the most influential stock men of the Judith Basin, which speaks for itself: JrDITH BASIN.

How a Prominent Bentonite was Mistaken for General Grant-A Job on Thomas Wall. l To the Editor of the Record. 1 Helena, during the fair week, presented so many attractions to the visitors who came flocking thither to share in the pleasures and excitement occasioned by the presence of Villard and party and by the number of horse races and other at tractions too numerous to mention, that a few words app ropos of the doings of a few of Benton's solid business men here, but on pleasure, may prove of interest to the many patrons of your journal. Scott Wetzel, as every one knows, is a social, whole-souled fellow, rather frolicsome and ever bent on having a good time, and on a good joke at some one's expense. But Mr. Wetzel had on this occasion a joke played on him well worthy of repeating. Returning from the race track behind two handsome prancing trotters, some one ex claimed, "There goes General Grant." The rural element, who had never seen the General, naturally followed Wetzel, giving cheer after cheer for the suppcsed hero of Appomattox. In vain did Wetzel try to escape. The lash was plied with a vengeance, but the crowd followed on and insisted upon a hand shake, As there was no avenue of escape, the request had to be complied with, and finally [twenty minutes was taken up in shaking the hands of the multitude. The unfortunate Wetzel carries his arm in a sling and off ers a reward of one hundred dollars to know the man who shouted, "There goes General Grant." Thomas Wall, Esq., the rustling lumber man from Clendenin, came in for a share of the pratical jokes perpetrated. At the depot he was taken for Carl Schurz, and taken in hand by our German business men and compelled to do penance in drink ing lager and eating bologna. However, his identity leaked out before the band ar rived and he was bounced then and there. lie now rooms with Wctzel and swears vengeance also. Dame Rumor has it that to-morrow he departs for Butte to take unto himself a helpmeet and that ere long Otter creek will rejoice in the possession of one of the most amiable belles of Butte. In haste. CRITERION. Wanted, a mI1i. Charles Rowe came in from his ranch to-day and was shaking hands with his many friends. In conversation with a RECORD reporter Mr. Rowe stated that there was a great desire among the tarmers of this vicinity for a grist mill, and thatall those with whom he had talked would agree to raise sufficient grain to supply the mill with material to work on for a year. A meeting of farmers will be called on the 29th inst. in this city and an effort be made to get the matter into tangible shape. It is understood that a prominent citizen of Benton stands ready to erect a mill at once, provided farmers will agree to give him sufficient wheat to keep the mill in syo;-.,..- ~.) -,- .It ne ant ne ex presses the belief that something definite will come of the proposed meeting. Owing to the lateness of the hour TIlE RECORD cannot enter into details so fully as it would desire, but will refer to the matter again in a much more comprehen sive way. The subject should be agitated as much as possible, both for the benefit of the farmers and the business men of Ben ton. Cow Boys! Attention!
