JOHN F. MURPHY, Secretary. CONCERNING CONTRACTS. The Successful Bidders for River and Land Transportation of Military Stores, etc, The Benton Line gets the River Work and Fred T. Evans the Land Transportation in Montana. Oa the 15th the bids for river and land transportation of military stores, etc. were opened at department headquarters at Fort Snelling, near St. Paul. Nearly all the Montana bidders were in attendance or were represented. The contracts in which Montana is inter ested are as follows: (1.) Wagon transpor tation in this Territory over which 4,262,982 lbs. of stores were transported in the year 1881. The greater portion of this work was contracted at $1.48 a hundred pounds a hun dred miles. (2.) Water transportation on the Missouri river between Yankton and Bis marck. (3.) Water transportation between Bismarck and Benton. (4) Water trans portation on the Yellowstone and Missouri combined between Glendive and Benton. The first of these, the overland transpor tation in Montana was secured by Fred T. Evans, of Sioux City, who for years has con trolled the transportation contracts to the Black Hills and in that country. Mr. Evan's operations have hitherto been confined to Dakota and he rather stole a march on the Montana men. His bid was a surprise party all around. The several steamboat men made an effort to pool-their issues on the river business, di viding the work up among them at a high rate, but for some reason the plan failed to work, and there was considerable cutting of rates when the combination failed. The following is a resume of the bids offered : LAND TRANSPORTATION IN MONTANA. J. W.
