Four More Horse Thieves Lynched. hMILEAdCITY, Mont., October 18.-Jim Costello and three others, alleged horse thieves, are reported to have been hang ed by vigilantes near Mingusville. The report comes from Glendive. Montana Stock. MILESCITY, October 20.-The North ern Pacific officials passed here going west to-day. Mr. Oakes stated that he was well pleased with the stock and wheat freightage of the company. The stock shipped east will be fully 75,000 head this fall. One hundred thousand head have been brought here by the Northern Pacific this season, and prob ably 150,000 head have come over the trail into northern Montana. Cattle are going east in excellent condition. Mr. Hannaford states that six miles wide on Beaver creek will be reserved from sale in order to insure a good cattle drive to Mingusville and the same policy will be pursued on other streams. The Latest Developments. The latest news touching the pleuro pneumonia in Illinois, is the following from the Breeder's Gazette: On Friday last, Dr. Paaren slaughter ed a Jersey heifer and a ten-year-old native cow belonging to Mr. W. A. Stewart, of St. Charles, Ill., the post mortem revealing typical uleuro-pneu monia. The heifer, we understand, had been bought from the unfortunate Clarke herd at Geneva in June, and was at the time suffering from what was supposed to be nothing more than a severe cold. She was turned into a pas ture with the native cow, with the result stated above. Both lungs of the heifer adhered to the rib, and the right was encysted. The right lung of the cow presented the characteristic mottled and hepatized appearance. This shows that t'ie disease is no respecter of breeds. Another case has occurred in Mr. Bailey's herd at Peoria, and the infected animal has been slaughtered. We are informed that a cow sent by Mr. Brown, of Beardstown, Ill., to Mr. Epler's farm in Cass county, to be bred to his bull, has sickened and was to have been killed on Tuesday. Dr. Paaren tele graphed Mr. Epler to preserve the lungs until he could examine them, but at this writing we have learned nothing as to the result of the post-mortem. Qowboys Still After Horse Thieves. GLENDIVE, October 20.-Partiefjust in from Powder river report that thieves stole sixteen head of horses in the Belle Fourche valley and were closely pursued toward Powder river by vigilantes. POPLAR RIVER, October 20.-It is creditably reported that sixty men cross ed the Missouri on Saturday last a short distance east of Fort Buford, en route to Grinnell's ranch, noted as a general resort for horse thieves. The same day Grinnell applied to the commanding ot ficer at Fort Buford for assistance to protect his place, but was refused. The band is composed of cowboys from Lit tie Missouri, who, it is said, will ransack the homrse thief harbor and capture its inmates. MILES CITY, October 20.-The fight at Mingusville between cowboys and horse thieves must have been a hot one. A report reaches here that five empty cowboys' saddles were found on the field. The cowboy vigilantes are said to have come front Wyoming. If so they are bent on vengeance, and the four that were hanged on the Beaver, seventeen miles north of Mingusville, near the Wibaux ranch are a part of their prey. Ole Berg, who led one gang of cowboys, was a prospective son-in law of Judge Allen, of Glendive, who was recently arrested, 3harged with horse stealing, and taken via Glendive to Miles City. Berg has not been heard from since the recent raid, and is believ ed to have fallen.. Jim Gostello, one of the four hanged, ras.only twenty-two years of age. Tendenmaes of the larkets. The cittle trade sho 9s a weakening e of late, which eertain~ly .is full of eg~ft c ~to those who handte ~~it ium arnd lbw grade qualit uEb.tIh for its maintenance. We do not see anything in the present situation or in the outlook which militates against the prospects for good cattle. Should the export trade materially revive prices should improve-but such a revival is among the improbabilities. Everythip r~ points rather more to steadiness in this grade of stock than to either anl advance or a decline.-National Stockman. STOCK NOTES. The B. A. Ranche company have re ceived from England 200 rams to run[ with the sheep lately driven in from Montana.-Calgary Herald. A cattle train was wrecked near Medora, on the Northern Pacific rail road, last Friday, resulted in the killing of 42 head of cattle belonging to the Stoddard and Howard Cattle company. It is estiilnted that if the weather remains finm so that cattle can be gather ed up on the ranges and driven to the railway, that 3,700 car loads of Montana beeves will be shipped this year to eastern markets. This will be about 70,100 head. From every quarter comes the intelli gence that many are preparing to attend the meetings at Chicago and St. Louis next month. The indications for a large attendance at these meetings grow more and'more flattering. These facts are encouraging, for without a doubt there have never yet been held any meetings of such vast importance to the live stock industry as those announced for No ven ber. Ottawa telegram: An order in coun cil directs that no sheep be allowed to graze in those sections of the Northwest territories bounded as follows: On the south by the International boundary line, on the west by the Rocky moun tains, on the north by the High river and its north fork to the Bow river, thence along the Bow river to the east ern boundary of the provisional district of Alberta, and on the east by the said eastern boundary. / The question of the establishment of a national cattle trail by the federal gov ernment is now receiving a considerable amount of attention at the hands of our exchanges. It is a subject worthy of discussion, and from present appear ances will doubtless come before the national convention of stockmen at St. Louis next month. This will be a capi tal occasion for the discussion of various topics of interest throughout the entire western range country. Improved Ranch for Sale.
