What a Reporter Picked Uip Con
cerning it in a short Interview
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.

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.

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
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
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.

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.

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
Cow Boys! Attention!
