The new owner of the Maxey coa mine in Rocky canyon, says he wil reduce the price of coal below 89 per ton. Captain Edwards, of Custer county, will contest the seats of Wm. Van Gaskan and S. R.

Best, w r ho jumped Bozeman without paying his bills, says it is not true. He always has that story on hand, but by long use it is gettin g worn out. The children of Helena have been forbidden to venture upon tbeir favor ite ' coasting ground, Catholic Hill, whereat the local papers very properly raise a grand plea for the little lolks. John Abercrombie, formerly a con ductor on the Northern Pacific, and later one of the proprietors of the Cos mopolitan Hotel in Helena, has opened a beer bottling establishment in Hel ena. X.

We understand that the mail agents run on the Northern Pacific will soon be shortened up, and instead of Miles City being a home station for the boys, they will only run from Bis marck to Glendive, and from Glendive to Billings, making the run consider ably shorter. age rnen of .tit Yesterday several persons were en gaged in exhuming the bodies of rela tives who had been previously buried in the old graveyard east of town, and transporting them to the new ceme tery on Tongue river. The bodies were generally found to be in a fine state of preservation, and were easily removed and re-interred. The major ity of the early burials bave been re . moved to tbeir new resting place, and in a short time the rest of the bodies will be removed to the consecrated soil.—Miles City Journal. The Chicago Mining Review, refer ring to the prevailing custom of slighting low grade ores and less pre cious metals, says: "The many veins of low grade ore and the minerals, such as copper, zinc and iron which the miuer now may consider a disad vantage will at some future time in the development of this industry prove to be the most valuable pro ducts of the mine. The wise miner should therefore mark the localities wherein these minerals occur, as the time is not far distant when the de mand will make them profitable. Salt Bake Tribune: At Pocatello, Idaho, th,ere is daily transferred from the Utah and Northern to the Oregon Short Line about twenty-five cars of ore, going east from Montana and Northern Idaho. The Viola company ship two cars of carbonates per day from their mines on Birch creek, sixty miles west of Camas station, to which place it is hauled. The Montana ores go to Kansas City, Buffalo, and to Liverpool, England. Twenty-five men are employed at Pocatello makiug transfers of goods between the two railways, and forty-five cars per day is about the average work done. the the to re in to In a Russian Prison.

Each of the States has.its own laws in regard to the rights of aliens. In Iowa aliens, that is persons cf foreign Krtli who have not been naturalized by their own act or that of their parents, may acquire, inherit, hold, and dispose of property, real or personal, precisely as if they were citizens. The" same is true in most of the States. Ia Penn sylvania alien friends may buy lands not exceeding 5,000 acres, * r.or' in net annual income $20,000. and hold the same as citizens may, but there are cer tain differences between them and citi zens in the matter of real estate con veyances, inheritance, etc. A will pre vents the property of an alien from escheating to the State in case of non appearance of heirs; and, as in the case of citizens, transcends the statute and common law as to the division of property among the heirs of persons who die intestate, i. e., without testa mentary wills.
