H. F. Doughlas Telln something of the I
Plans of the Park Improvement
Company, Whioh will have
H tels Built for 1883.
Henry F. Doughlas of Fort Yates. t
Dak., and one of the prime movers in i
the company which is to furnish tht I
Yellowstone park with hotel and trans- I
portation facilities, says no time will be I
lost in making the most of the facilities t
granted by the government, and already {
saw mills and supplies have been pur
chased and will be put up at once, so f
that the company can take care of tour
ists during the summer of 1833, when a
very large number are expected from all
over the world, the fame of the wonders I
of the park having been sent abroad j
more than over throughout the last year.
Three hotels are to be put up at once,
and the site of the largest has been fixed
upon at the Mammoth spring. One of
the others will probably be on Fire Hole
river at Sheridan's geyser, known as
Hell's Half Acre, this being the nearest
reachable point within the park to the
Utah Northern railway, as the larger
hotel is nearest the Northern Pacific.
The site of the third hotel has not been
fixed upon, but it will most probably be
on Yellowstone lake, upon which Gen.
James Briebin has secured the privilege
of placing a steamboat. He is to be al
lowed to own one steamer on the lake
and the company will own any others
that may be placed there within the next
ten.years, as also the row and sail boats,
of which a full completement will be
ordered at once. The Northern Pacific
intends to run its branch line from Ben
son's Landing to the edge of the park
early next spring, and the Park Im1
provement company will immediately
lput on stages to connect with the rail
way, which will be sixty miles long,
over the route previously and several
times described. The stage rride from
the terminus of the Northern Pacific to
the largest hotel will be only ten miles
long. - Stages are also to be run to the
Utah Northern which has determintd
to build a branch to the edge of the park
very speedily. This stage ride will be
longer than the other, but the sec.fncry
throughout is said to be enchanting. It
's believed that arrangements will be
imade for the issuance of round trip tick
ets reading via Utah Northern and
Utnion Pacific coming into the park and
Notthern Pacific rAturning, or a reversal
in the order.

Kittie carroll, 0ne of,4(r at the
'"Pale," Attempts t"3Bh1 Off
This Mort&r1oi."
About twelve o'clock night before last t;
there was an unusual stir at the "gilded
palace" on Main street;, caused by the J
fact that one of the inmates attempted 1
to commit suicide by taking morphine.
Kittie Carroll is the namie of the unfor- j
tunate girl, and her life kwassaved simply 1
because she took an! overdose-nearly s
whole bottle of sixty grains-which ]
acted as an emetic, and by the assistance
of a physician she was soon, brought -
about all right.. 1
An eflort was made yesterday to keep
the affair quiet, but it soon got noised
aoroad, as such things will, and was a
ruitful topic of conversation on the
streets yesterday. Theogirl was notlong
in repentingof her folly and is not likely
to attempt self-destruction again very
The circumstances connected with the
case are of the stereotyped form. There
is a "lover,' of course, jealousy on the
part of the latter, a. little quarrel, an al
leged final leave taking--and then, in
despair, the morphine ottle ! It would
make a very nice and pathetic story
with all the details and heart burnings
worked in, but we have no wish, even
if it would create a sensation, to go into
particulars. No harm of consequence
has been done and probably sonmebody
will be benefited. "All's well that ends
Forty-Three Tons of Ore from the Wright
& Edwards in Five D)ays.
We were shown last evening the regu
lar report of the operations on the
Wright & Edwards mine for the five
days' preceding the departure of the
coach from the gulch, or of five days
work last week, showing that a total of
83,778 pounds of first-class ore, or over
43 tons, were taken out in that time.
When it is remembered that the mine is
now only in process of development, and
not worked.solely to get out ore, this
record may well be considered an ex
cellent one. The mince is reported look
ing better than ever.
