It is currently reported that one of our wealthy rin tie uowne s has stated his in teatiut, of building and endowing a Catholic university in this city. The amount to be devoted to this generous l)urpi·oe has been variously stated, but as near as we can learn $75,000 is the sum to be expended in the erection of the buildi ng.-Hicra·d.

That important section of Meagher known as the Judith Basin, has become within the past two years, not only re claimed to settlement, but to republican isnm. Outside of Stuart's and Maidcten, which the liFort Maginnis leadership was able to control, the Basin precincts re turn strong majorities for Botkin and most of the locrd republican candidates. At Beaver creek Botkin's vote was 34 to 5 br Maginnis. At Reedsfort the poll was 70 for Botkin to 33 for Maginnis, and at Flat Willow, the only precinct in the county not yet reported, Botkin's majority is estimated by both parties at from 15 to 20. Thus eastern Meagher overcomes the Missouri valley, where the solid .railroad vote. was polled for Maginnis at Deep creek, and in spite of that vote places Meagherin the column of republican counties.--Hralcd.
