The democrats elect Roberts for treasurer, Totten for clerk, Gilpat rick for sheriff, Steele for coroner. The contest is close between Comly and Ta tern for the house, with the chances in favor of Comnly, democrat. DEER OIDGE. Dotokin's majority in the county is 75. Pemberton, democrat., is elected district attorney. The demoerats elect Mitchell to the council and Armstrong to the house, McMasters for sheriff, Ward for clerk, Napton for surveyor, Strang for coroner, Vineyard for commissioner. The republicans defeat Mayhew for the house, but who with our advices do not ~ray, elect McQuestion for assessor, Em mer~on for probate judge, Catlin for sup crintendent of schools. The contest be tween Humber and Coleman for tyeasur er depends on the vote.of Vestel, which gave Botkin two majority, thus making the chances in favor of Celeman, repub lican. BEAVERHEAD.

As far as heard from, Magiinis is run ning ahead of his ticket. Horse Plains Q gives Maginnis 60 majority ; Thompson river, 270 majority ; Thompson falls, 150 m.jority. The county will probably give. 700 majority for Maginnis. BOZE.MAN, Nov. 9.-The opinion is held here that in Custer county the ring gave themselves dead away. From private dispatches it is known that much repeating was done and many illegal votes cast. It is sheer nonsense to sup- i pose that a town the size of Miles City can cast 1,220 votes, when Bozeman only casts 1,047. The republicans here do not give it up yet. Their faith is strong. STATE .ELECTIONS. New York. NEW YORK, Nov. 8.--A Tinie extra puts Cleveland's majority at 1.74,000 on the returns to 10 a. in., and makes the Legislature strongly Democratic. The latest reports increase the Democratic majorities everywhere and indicate that 45 of the 60 counties in the state have gone Democratic. NEw YORK, Nov. 8.-The Times says the Republican party message to Presi dent Arthus reads something like this: "Mind your own business, which is not that of interfering in local politics in your own or any other state. Cease try ing to be ward politician and executive of a nation at the same time. Leave men like O'Brien, French and Smith to their own divices. Try to expand your political vision beyond the area to which you have been accustomed to confine it. You are not ignorant of the rudiments of statesmanship. Advance beyond them and confide in the people rather than politicians. Be assured that when you intrigued to foist the claims of Ros coe Conkling on digusted constituents you made a fatal blunder; that when you humbly try to console him under defeat with the judgeship of the Supreme Court you insulted public intelligence; that when you lent yourself to work his revenge and that of his master, Gould, against Gov. CcrAell you aroused the in dignation of every thinking man in this state, and sowed a distrust of your ad ministration wherever dishonesty and manhlness are reckoned among political virtues. Have a mind of your own and be President of a nation and not of a narrow and vindictive faction of your own party. The country may be brought to admire Chester A. Arthur as he may be, but it has emphatically condemned Chester A. Arthur as he is. New Y :k Times: To Roscoe Conk ling a private citizen, altogether out of politics and wholly devoted to the prac tice of the law, the Republican party of this state has had something to say, un less we greatly mistake the meanings of yesterday's vote. It is something like this: If you have any sense of gratitude forhonors which party has showered upon you in the past, take your hands off' its organization for the future. No body expects you to admit that you have greatly abused the trust reposed in you, but everybody has a handful of personal adherents, blinded by prejudice or self interest, demands that you should rec ognize the fact that you have had your day, and that the only service left for you to perform to your party is that of letting your henchmen understand that you have nothing more to give them nor to ask from them. With the character of your clients the public have :nothing to do, but Republycanswho retain some admiration for you, as well as those who never had any, have some right to ex pect that you shall earn your fees by means less shameful than that of pack ing the state convention to serve Jay Gould. If you have not enough self-respect to restrain you from intruding 'where you are not needed, have at least dignity and common sense enough to keep your griefs and ambitions to yourself until your name becomes less intimately asso elated .with party demoralization and disaster.

BLOOMINGTON, Nov. 8.-Rowell, Re publican, is elected to Congress from the fourteenth district by from 500 to 700 majority.

The International Running Match. NEW YOIRK, Nov. 5.--An internation al. half mile running match between W. G. George, of the Mosely Harriers, and Lawrence E. Meyers, of the Manhattan Athlete Club, this city, came off to-day on the Polo grounds. Myers won the position and took the outside. Both bounded away on the report of a pistol, George with a long telling stride, and Myers dropped in behind him. The first 220 yards was accomplished by George in 26 3-4 seconds, Myers hard behind him. The sixth of a mile, or 294 yards, was made by George in 33 seconds, the American still trailing him. A quarter of a mile saw George one foot in front; time 55 1-4 seconds. George drew away again, and at the end of the first lap, one-third of a mile, or 587 yards; time one minute 16 2-3 seconds, they were almost side by side. George began to increase his stride, and Myers dropped in behind again, the English man runnfng 660 yards in one minute and 26 1-4 seconds. At 700 yards George still led, with tne American in close pursuit. Time one minute and 31 2-5 seconds. Now Myers began to draw up, and just before reaching the 800-yard mark, went to the front. His time, one minute and 45 seconds. George tried to spurt, but could go no faster, and Myers, who evidently had a lot left in him, came home the winner by three yards, in one minute and 56 3-5 seconds. George's time for the full distance, one minute and 57 seconds. Dressed Beef vs. Live Cattle. ALBANY, November 10.--T. C. East man, New York; WV. H. Monroe, Al bany; W. H. Vanderbilt, New York, and W. Arnold, Chicago, have 'formed a company with a reported capttal of $100,000, to oppose the Chicago dressed beef enterprise. They will open depots in every city where other firms have agencies now, and will sell beef brought from Chicago in the American Refriger ator Company's cars at prices which will just cover expenses. This is considered a move to crowd out the d ssed beef trade in the interest of the live stock business and the railway companies. Manitob Ra way Projects ast Upon. MONTREAL, Nov. 5.-The governor general, in council yesterday ýdflowed the following i ont acts psysedb-y the anito latue: First, to Incorý pora the z& Noithwesrn ,. - ote thiri ye> .lý "xa;g~~~l~l~a·[~~iId·;g~IJ and last were understood to be in the interest of the Northern Pacific' railway, being promoted for thait company io make railway connections with the Man itoba and Northwest territory. The in fluence used with the Dominion minis try to get these acts nullified, was by the Canadian Pacific railway directors, whose charter would be infringed had, the acts been allowed. The action of the federal goverinmeut in this matter will stir up as much indignation among the inhabitants of the Northwest as the dis allowance of the boundary award has done in Ontario. The final decision will intensify the strong feeling that has existed against the Ottawa government interfering, and is sure to draw out men acing demands for state rights. ---- ,,oC'4 4 -.. WASHINGTON, Nov. 4.-It was ascer tained at the office of tile second assist ant postmaster general, to-day, that. the mails will be carried by the Northern Pacific railroad company from Miles City to Billings on and after December 1, prox. LIGHTNING BRIEFS. NEW YORK, November 10.-Henry Boas, election inspector, has been sent to state prison for one year for a viola of the election laws. BERLIN, .November 10.-Many jour nals of this city attribute the Democratic victory in the late elections in America to the growing influence of the foreign element of the population. BOSTON, November 10.-Ex-Secretary Blaine said to a personal friend in this city to-day, "I wish it distinctly under stood that I am not a candidate for the presidency or any other political office, and nothing can induce me to become such." ' SYDNEY, November 11.--While tak ing coal at thiA harbor, the steamer Tris tram, which trades in the Orient, went down with the entire cargo. The steam er had taken aboard about half her sup ply of coal, when suddenly she gave a lurch, the port hbles opened, and she immediately filled and stink in 40 feet of water. No lives lost. LOUISVILLE, November 11.-At the homcepathic dispensary yesterday a sin gular operation was performed on a col ored man who was suffering from a large tumor. The surgeon attempted to place the subject under the influence of ether, but his system refused to be influenced by the strongest applications. Doctor Smith, one of the surgeons, attempted to mesmerize him, which was speedily effected, the patient remaining insensi ble to pain. The removal of the tumor began at 9:30 a. m., and owing to its size and the care taken it was not concluded until 11. Though entirely conscious, he felt no pain. The Flag is Net Flying. Our White Sulphur Springs corres pondent, in closing the returns from a few Meagher county precincts, makes the following commentary: "Enclosed please find votes polled at the Springs, Martinsdale, Fort Logan and Diamond. The outside precincts are the first returns, and some may not be correct, but the Springs is all O. K. Keep the ball rolling and notice Botkin's and Waterman's maj arity. The flag is not flying from the flagstaff, as it was on the arrival of Maginnis a short time ago, when he was on a trip through here. The boys are wearing crape now. B." mB- -. 4r-.lb w.c----: .. -NNotes from the Marias. PIEGAN CROSSING, NOV. 10. Editors of the RIVER PniEs. Stock is looking well on the Marias. The Indians are much more quiet since the arrest of three of the rascals by the sheriff for killing cattle. There has been quite a number of cattle killed by the Indians this fall, but it is to be hoped. that it will now cease. No horses have been stolen from the ranchmen in this section. We had the privilege of voting at district No. 18, St. Louis district, at Price's ranch. Plenty of prairie chick ens but no ducks or geese this fall. COWBOY. Oyster Supper. The ladies of the :Episcopal .chur h will give: an oyster supper at the Grand Union jote1, on Friday evening, Nov. 17th. .Dancing and other amusements will be added to the programme, and an enjoyable time is asstUed to all who at tend.: Everybody invited. Ret t good dofefeAmd oyster stewb will bier ived, and as reatabse prices. 'The Vadioare wprM e teo ib ký.. the so a l e-n R i *ll ha ITEMS OF INTEREST. Michigan claims to have gained 50,000 new settlers in her northern counties this year. The dome of the \Washington Capitol is being painted and it will take ifteen tons of white lead. Von Moitke was to celebrate on the 26th his 83d birthday, and on the 2)th the 25th anniversary of his tenure of of -fice as Chief of the Grand General Staff. Eva Wehrle of Cincinnati had a pet Spitz dog, and on deciding to commit suicide, she first hanged the brute. The two dead bodies ;were found suspended side by side. The story goes that Logan and Blaine have agreed to stand by each other in the n'ext National Convention, work to gether in procuring delegates, and take fir-t or second place on the ticket, as their strength may indicate. A few weeks ago during a heavy storm, the Rio Grande river suddenly changed its course by cutting through a bend near Camargo, and thus placed several acres of habited territory within the legal limit of the United States. The provision made by S. L. Landes of Mt. Carmel, Ill,, for his wife and children took the form of planting 100, 000 walnuts, which, with proper care, should produce trees fifteen inches in diameter in twenty years and yield an independent fortune. A. mob took Andrew Elliott out of jail at Grand Forks, Dakota, and adjusted a rope around his neck; but he argued convincingly that his crime did not merit a death penalty, and suggested that a coat of tar and feathers would be about the right punishment. The lyn chers took his view of the matter. Two natives of Maine have sought for tune successfully in Europe. One is Lillian Norton, a grand-daughter of Camp fMeeting John Allen. She is un der engagement in Paris as a singer at $12,000 a year. The other is Frederick Gowor, who is said to have made $1,500, 000 by forming telephone companies in London. They are to marry each other. The great St Bernard establisnment costs between $6,000 and $8,000 a year to maintain. It accommodates from 16,000 to 20,000 visitors every year, to whom, in accordance with old tradition, no charge is made, but in the hall stands a strong box, into which any one may put what seems to him a proper acknowl edgement. It is a painful reflection on hunwan nature that the sum found an nually in the strong box barely repre sents what would be a moderate hotel charge for a thousand guests. In corn menting on the miserable meanness, which falls very hardly on an establish ment which can very ill afford it, a con tributor to the London Graphic observes that the system pursued is quite incon sistent with the conditions of modern travel, Cook's tourists, etc. The monks are robbed and honest people made un comfortable. Much better charge the rates of a moderate hotel. FLOATING FANCIUB. The girls of the Sunny Clime, says an unidentified exchange, describe this world as one of "bustle, toil and care." We agree with them-the women have all the bustle, and the men have all the toil and care. Repeating a remark: A young man in a train was making fun of a lady's hat to an elderly gentleman in the seat with him. "Yes," said his seat-mate, "that's my wife, and I told her that if she wore that bonnet that some fool would make fun of it." A Deadwood "girl" is having a dress made and embroidered with the cattle brands of the various cattle men whom sae'counts among her admirers. It is evident that she is in cahoots with the coroner and surgeons, and is taking this way to promote duelistic encounters. "Now," said the teacher of the senior class, "we will have some quotations from different authors. Miss:Carrie you may give a selection indicating sweet ness and an antagonistic comparison." The young lady with mischief spark ling in her eyes, arose and electrified the ;udienoe vith, "A kiss without a mustache is like an egg without salt." A London paper describes an Ameri can gilt in that city who "wears a gown with a Right of embroidered swallews, benfitag on her left shoulder and end ig.at ber right foot; and swallows also fly about her parasol." ,The Ameriean yout ith:i London is` also addlted tQ SlPrai 44Os-ttbut they don't ibgin nol hi let :ha,.. , They begin u.ter tis' *iise and mpi doears tlhroat
