The railroad celebration in Helena on the Fourth of July is to be the biggest thins of the kind ever- in Helena. The entire shipments of cattle this year from the stales to Montana is esti mated at between 35,000 and 40,000 head. Madame Modjeska, accompanied by her husband, Count Bozentâ, will, it is said, pass the summèr in the Yellowstone Na tional Park. • The stock-growers of the Musselshell range advertise that they Consider it over stocked and will allow no outsiders to join in the round-up. A detachment of troops from Fort Assinaboine lately took from a band of Piegans eleven horses belonging to the Canadian mounted police. Two miners left Billings last week for the Big Horn mountains to search for the Lost Gabin, which is said to stand upon a ledge streaked with pure gold. A woman named Shea living in Town send was shot last Friday with a charge of small shot. John Lynch, a neighbor, has been arrested on suspicion of doing the shootir ". One of Paris Gibson & Son's Delaine Merino rams this year sheared twenty-two and one-half pounds of nice clean wool. One hundred Vermont ewes averaged over ten pounds each. John A. Jamison, the Irish sportsman who spends a season every year in Mon tana, is en route to the Territory, and will meet his guide, Sam El well, on the Yel lowstone about the 16th prox. On Tuesday of last week a miner named Peter Dahl, working in the Urbana mine at Red Bluff, was fatally injured by the falling of a heavy mass of rock, which mutilated him in a horrible manner. Miss Sallie Hosmer, a sort of retired old-timer of tender years is giving read ings and musical entertainments in the towns of western Montana. She is the daughter of the first chief justice of Mon tana. Horse stealing is going on in the vicini ty of Billings, one of the local papers mentioning eleven head of horses and mules that have been stolen lately. There can be no doubt but what a band of horse thieves are at work in the Yellowstone valley who deserve summary extermina tion. We are inclined to believe that Jack Johnson, the Custer county sheriff, is so journing somewhere down in the states ank keeping his weather eye open for Briggs, the absconded commissioner, and Steve Taylor, the ex-clerk, and we further belive that Jack will run down his men.— Glendive Times. L. W. Peck, secretary of the Montana Wool Growers association, says that there will be a big crop of wool this year. The average yield will be much greater than last season or than he has known it to be in the territory. Some of his yearlings sheared nine pounds, and he expects a big average yield. Custer county warrants now sell readHy in Miles City at 90 per cent of their face value. A few weeks ago they were worth forty cents on the dollar and no takers. Some one must be reaping a rich harvest out of this suddeh rise in value, as thous ands of dollars worth of these warrants were in private hands in Miles City. To-day Benjamin Butterworth, of Ohio, and W. A. A. Patten and C. L. Perkins, of New York, the commissioners recently appointed by President Arthhur to exam ine 75 miles of Northern Pacific road, will begin 60 miles this* side of Helena and continue to within 10 miles of that point TTie other 25 miles are on the Western division, and commence 25 miles east of the boundary of the Flathead reser vation. a be of est go on • of a On Wednesday, says the Missoulinn. Ah Tchiung, said to be a partner in a Chinese mining company near Helena, was arrested in this city, charged with grand larceny in running away with $800 of the company's money, and is now ii> jail. Sheriff Plater recovered about $260 of the money; the balance has gout against "Chinese poker," or some other game. Fort Benton and the surrounding coun try was visited by a hail storm last Sun day evening which the "oldest inhabitant" says was the most severe in his experience. It seems to have moved in a zig-zag course, taking in all the principal agricultural valleys in that vicinity, and doing great damage to crops. The ground was covered with hail stones to the depth of two or three inches ; grass and weeds were buried in the ground; trees were stripped of their leaves and several panes of glass broken in windows. "Old Salty," who has just returned from Montana, informs the Hailey Times that in the National Park there are places where a man may sit on one spot, cast his fish line into a stream, swing out a fine trout and land it into a boiling spring, and then into a salt spring, when it is read> •for eating. There are also springs that supply paints of every color, and a spring which, at 6 a. m. and 6 p. m., daily, makes a noise similar to a Mississippi steamboat whistle, and by which the 150 men now employed in making roads in the Park go on and off work. There are parts of a lake where fish can be captured in shallow water with file hands, and parks where game and elk are killed with clubs. The adventures of fills gentleman are bet ter described by himself. Livingston and White Sulphur Springs Road. We extract the following from the Rocky Mountain Husbandman. It needs no çomment as its tone is as cordial and its language as expressive as we could de sire: The town of White Snlphur Springs was visited last week by a committee of enter prising gentlemen, Geo. N. Smith, Geo. J. Babson and Frank Bush, of the railway metropolis, Livingston. Messrs. Babson and Bush were appointed by the citizens of their town to come to Smith river to see what was here and make an estimate on the cost of putting the wagon road in first class repair, and to confer with our citi zens in regard to securing the most friend ly relations between the two points. Mr. Smith was a delegate to confer with oar people in regard to the establishment of mail service and the erection of a tele graph and telephone line. They received a very cordial reception and none but the most friendly sentiments were exchanged. Livingston is without question the freight point for White Sulphur Springs. This we may consider is already established, and with a telegraph and mail will be come the passenger point also. Since Livingston is the junction of the Park branch of the Northern Pacific, and will be thronged with visitors, tourists, etc., for Wonderland it is absolutely necessary to connect it with the Springs by a fast line of coaches, as but few who go to see the wonders of the Park will be willing to return to their eastern home without a taste of the healing waters of White Sul phur Springs, the greatest panacea of human ills yet discovered. Messrs. 8mitk, Bush and Babson are live enterprising gentlemen, and represent a wide awake and thoroughly business people v/fio Mill leave nothing undone calculated to strengthen the relation between Livings ton and the Springs, and it is to our inter est to co-operate with them in the most cordial manner, as the interest of the two points are one, each can be of great ad vantage to the other. There will be hun dreds of thousands of pounds of wool to go to the railroad by this route, and in another year when the Montana mines are more fully develoyed, a steady stream of bullion wiU lead off in thesame direction, while the supplies tor all ihese industrie.*' and the thousands who will in a few years sojourn at the healing fountains, must also come by the same route. We are glad to welcome Livingston's enterprising business men to our town, and trust they will come again.
