Published every day except Sund îraiGHT 1 & HENDRY, : Publishers. LIVINGSTON, M. T., DEC. 17, 1883. As might have been expected, the ardent admirers of Senator Sabin, of Min nesota, who hare access to newspaper col umns, are mentioning him as an eligil candidate for the presidency, since he has been compromised into the chairmanship of the Republican national committee. •It will be a cold day for his party when lie receives the nomination for the presi dents seat. History of Montana. The Territorial Historical company, now engaged in the compilation of the history of Montana, has deferred writing up the newer towns, as long as possible, in order that their busi ness interests might be more fully represented. E. M. Harney aud W. R. Tate, representing this company, are here to collect the necessary in formation pertaining to this locality. The plan of the proposed history is very comprehensive, and the book promises to be one of great interest and value. It will embrace a complete history of this region, including pre territorial times, to the date of pub lication; giving everythiug of historic interest, obtainable from the most relia Die sources. The work will be published in two large volumes, hand somely embellished with illustrations, which will include views of natural scenery, the finest public and private buildings and portraits of early set tiers and prominent men. The work has already received- the endorsement of the best citizens of the territory, who have interested themselve in se curing the success of so an important an enterprise. E Geo. H. Butler's Whereabouts. Beu Butler's nephew George, the army officer, who was formerly sta tioned at Fort Keogh, writes to the New York Sun as follows, iu a letter dated at Washington: "I emphatically deny that I am or that I ever was in the workhouse. Since my return from Montana, where the climate did not :ïgree with me, and I did not agree with Maj. Gen. Terry, I have been an inmate of the government asylum for •he it sane where drinking patients are admitted. I have been, often in my life, very drunk; may get so again, but don't want to. If my will power is going or gone, and if, as these med ical men—Dr. Mandealy, Dr. Ged dings, Dr. Bliss, and your own Austin i'liHt—say a will power can be grown like a moustache, I intend to remain here until 1 raise a new one." Little Missouri Again to the Front. Lust Wednesday evening T. J. Me Clung, •A Little Missouri, as he was returning to his home, about half a mile from the rail ad dr pot, was fired upon by some person known. He involuntarily turned as 2 shot was fired, and the bullet grazed e top of his head, carried away his hat I covered his face with powder. Im mediately two men sprang up from the » .sli where the shot came from and ran and have not since been seen, and it is ieved they have fled to the bad lands, similar attempt was made upon Mr. Clung's life about nine days previous. }se persistent attacks may perhaps find explanation in the fact that McClung ne of the principal witnesses for the ease in the Marquis de Mores trial now p aiding. J. C. More Montana Potatres. Col. J. II. Stevens in Minnesota Tribune : - ) are indebted to Mrs. McNamara, of iiissoula, Montana, for specimens of pota toes raised on the grounds of that lady iu Missoula. It is difficult to imagine how better ones could be grown. We had the pleasure of visiting Mrs. McNamara's home while in Montana last September, • vd was agreeable surprised to see the u any different varieties of choice products iu h?r pleasant home. Among others we found pear trees, too young for bearing, but looking healthy. Several different varieties of apple trees, currants, cherries I shrubbery of different kinds, straw lie fries, and small fruits generally, to gether with beautiful plants, and flowers, all being in excellent condition, which rhows that Mrs* McNamara is a magnifi cent horticulturist. She will please accept our thanks for the favor received in the« potatoes. We are not posted in regard to the varieties, but they are good opes, whatever their varieties may lie, which we pretty sure are closely connected té the Burbank aqodiing and the old Mercer II el ora is 4o haw a vitUiii the year. street railway The camels now running wild in Arizona were bought by the United States govern ment in Asia Minor. There were 7C cam els in the first "colony." They were first employed in packing between Fort Tejon and Albuquerque, in some instances car rying 100 gallons of water to the animal, and going nine days without themselves. Tiring of the camels, the government con demned them and they were sold to two Frenchmen, who took them to Reese Riv er where they were used in packing salt to Virginia City. Afterward the animals were brought back to Arizona and were engagée in packing ore from Silver King to Yuma: but through some cause or other the Frenchmen became disgusted, and there being no market for camels just then, they turned them loose upon the desert near Maricopa Wells, and to-day they and their descendants are roaming through the Gila valley, increasing aud multiplying and get ting fat upon the succulent sagebrush and greasewood with which all the country abounds.—Tombstone Epitaph.
