LIVINGSTON TO WHITE SULPHITE SPRINGS. What a Man Who Has Traveled the Boute Has to Say About the Road and the Country. From the basin of Shields river the road passes by a continual but almost un- ; perceptible rise to the top of a pretty high divide—a western spur of the Crazies. At the top of this dityde is the county boundary between Gallatin and Meagher, about forty miles from Livingston. Eight miles down the northern slope of the divide and just at the head of Smith river valley, is Potter's Halfway house, the only regular stopping place on the road. Smith river is nearly one hundred miles long and flows almost dne north till it joins the Missouri. Settlers have occu pied its valley for many years—long enough to grow wealthy by farming and by growing sheep, cattle and horses. I Sheep husbandry is the leading industry and it is estimated that there are now I pasturing along Smith river valley nearly I 100,000 sheep, exclusive of this year's ambs. These should clip this year half a million pounds of wool which alone would add $125,000 to the wealth of the Smith river valley. From Potter's to the springs the road passes along the high ground next the foot hills, leaving the ranches at some distance in the river bot tom below. This portion of the road is in excellent condition, being a county', road upon which a considerable amount of money lias been judiciously expended. White Sulphur Springs, which the party reached on Saturday (the day after leav-1 ing Livingston) r is a pretty little town of about 400 population. The springs from which it takes its name were the nucleus of the town, and by their aid and the rich country surrounding it has grown slowly but substantially to its present size, with every prospect of* steady increase. The springs, with a large tract of land around [ them and adjoining the town, have been lately bought by a syndicate of capitalists who are making great improvements upon the property. A park is being laid out and a new hotel and bath rooms will soon be in readiness for the reception of visitors. The waters of the springs have attained much celebrity by the many cures effected by their use, and White Sulphur is a favorite resort for health seekers from all the northern and western part of the terri tory. The people of the town all seem in thrifty circumstances. The Livingston I party conferred with the principal business men and found them very affable and dis posed to regard this town in a favorable ight. Merchants had hitherto found | much difficulty in getting goods trans X)rted over the route from here, but this would be obviated if bridges were con structed along the Shields river valley. This done and all merchandise handled at the Springs would lie shipped thither from ivingston, and if dealers here give them proper terms we doubt not that a large portion of the goods will be bought here. lie wool and other exported produce of I the Smith river valley will come here for shipment and a constantly increasing trade will grew up between the two points. | The people of White Sulphur Springs are very anxious for telegraph communica- < tion and a daily mail service between that place and Livingston, and will co-operate I actively with the people of this town to secure them. They now have daily mail from Helena but have always been with- 0 out telegraph facilities. If a company were formed to stretch a telegraph line hence to the springs at least one-half the stock would be subscribed at the latter place. This would be the harbinger of the railroad line, which must, and will| connect the towns within a very few years. Highly pleased with their journey and with their visit to White Sulphur Springs, the Livingston party left there on Satur day at 3 p. m. and, traveling leisurely, reached home at about the same time on the afternoon of the next day. At Missoula last Thursday a large build ing which had been raised about five feet, and temporarily rested upon mi insecure foundation, fell to the ground again with a great crash- It contained a stock of wholesale liqnors which, with the furni ture, mode a terrible wreck. MONTANA NEWS. ; Snow fell to the depth of two inches in the Barker district last Tuesday. Mr. Young, the present postmaster at Park City, is to be succeeded by O. Claw son. There are several cases of small pox in Butte, the disease having been brought there by a transient sojourner in the city. Howard Sebree, of Salt Lake, propose»« to take $10,000 worth of stock in the big irrigating canal of the Beaverhead valley. John W. Cobb has withdrawn from the proprietorship of the Miles City Press ' The Press is abont to publish a weekly edition. I The name of the new railroad town ou Warm Springs Creek in Deer Lodge I county will be AnflonnHa instead of Cop I peropolis. Houses and lots in Dillon are bringing much better prices than they did a y ew ago. So much ror the general prosperity of Montana. Two train loads of cattle—1,200 head arrived in Billings on Monday last, des tined for Powers & Sample's ranch in the Judith Basin. city op and driver I Mine-owners in Southern Montana are unanimous in asking for a reduction of railway freight rates on ores to the Salt I Lake market. ^ la8t atage on &e and HeIena route dr0Te ln u , e , atter 8aturday la6t .

Sheep barbers are scarce and independent.—Dillon Tribune. A valuable span of draft horses were stolen from a stable in Butte one night last week. Next day they were tracked three miles and found, but no trace of the thieves except an overcoat near by. One thousand acres of land near the* I mouth of Sun river has been purchased by James J. Hill, president of the Mani toba railroad, and Paris Gibson, of Ben ton. It is rumored that a city is to be | built there, At the special term of the District court for Silver Bow county, just closed, Louis Dubost, who robbed his frail lady love of $2,000, was sentenced to one year in the penitentiary, and E. S. Thompson, who criminally libeled Lippincott through the columns of the Miner, was fined $50 and costs. *^ ie Independent says : From a letter re ceived from A. M. Esler, dated at Maid en » Montana, June 12,1883, we learn that ^ ie Maginnis Mining company had on h aQ d at that date thirty-one and a < l uar ^ er pounds of gold, the product of a run °f twenty-eight days. This may roughly be estimated at the value of $7,000. G. K. Barnes, general passenger agent 0 f the Northern Pacific, in response to va rious inquiries, has issned a circular let ter, setting forth that the road is completed to Helena, Montana, 1,154 miles from St. p au l, and that at Helena a daily line of stages crosses a gap in the road of 150 m i] es . that the, work of completing the road is progressing rapidly, and the indi cations are that it will be finished by the last of August, and through trains then be running between Helene and Portland. "Six Shooter Jack," who was shot as a desperado by a sheriff in Idaho a few days ago, is an old Montanian, having lived in Butte some years previous to leaving, three weeks ago. His real name was John F. Lobb, and although he courted the reputation of being a "bold bad man," he was uniformly peaceable and affable. In 1879 he killed a man at Silver Bow ander justifiable circumstances, and served two and a half years in the penitenti&av for tbejdecd, being pardoned out at that time.
