Richard Mtickle, of the Philadelphia Ledger, is sjxiken of as the successor to Sargent as minister to Berlin. The "fighting fifth'' district of Minne sota has again held two separate conven tions am I each has made nominations for delegates to the Chicago republican con vjntion. Kindred and Nelson interests still rule the divided factions. As yet no open clue to the identity of the murderers of the two Indians in Galla tin valley and as yet no arrests in connec tion with the assassination of Dr. Barkley, near Townsend. It begins to look as if red-handed murder could stalk through our land unmolested. The grand jurymen of Custer county have made their re [Kir t. It differs in general outline but little from tiie ordi nary grand jury report, which is to say that as in duty bound it finds fault with a few things and commends everything else. A grand jury has not done its duty until some fault is found, and it sel dom considers it its duty to make any sweeping strictures such as are generally deserved. Grand juries are getting to be almost as much of an objectionable nui sance as petit juries, or even more so. The contest iu the territorial republi can convention at Bozeman on Friday will be without exception the warmest ever held in Montan i. Fation is ar.ayed against faction with a determination to win that approaches absolute hatred in its bitterness. The issue is not so much Blaine against Arthur or any presidential candidate against any other as it is the persistent effort of the old-time republi cans of Montana to down the man sent here to execute the guliernatorial office, but who, beside, has undertaken to rule the territory as a political autocrat. We shall see. Hon. Geo. O. Eaton of Cooke City is prominently spoken of as a suitable per son to send as one of the delegates to the Chicago convention. Mr. Eaton, without regard to his presidential preferences, would certainly fill the bill. He was a member of the constitutional convention, and besides being a gentleman of ability, was pronounced the handsomest man m that distinguished body.— River Press: We note with some chagrin that Col. Eaton is winning higher encomiums from his friends troin his personal appearance than from special mental (jual iticatious. But fame runs in various channels. Oregon's Hard Times. A Portland, Oregon, correspondent writes the New York Sun: As for kind to be taken up, it is very scarce. There are several thousand people in this country now, who are unable to obtain employment at any price. Men are selling land far superior to the land here, for £40 and $50 per acre, and are coming out' here to pay $100 an acre for unimproved land. Men who labor for their living are compelled to com pete with the Chinese, who work fora mere trifie. it it of Work on Paeitie Coast Railroads. Upon the Baker City extension on the Oregon Railway & Navigation Company's road, 1,900 Chinamen and 600 white men are now said to be at work between Baker City and Hunt ington. and about 500 more men are expected to be put at work later in the spring. On the Oregon Short Line which is to join the extension of the O. R. X., 2,500 men are said to be employed. It is expected that the two l.nes will connect in September of this year. • It is said that the North ern Pacific is also massing supplies and stock to proceed with work on the Ca c.de division of its road. ing dred if dred ing J. Fort Magiuui* to be AbantleikeU. The military autlmiilias have aban doned the idea of constructing a mili tary telegraph line between Terry's Landing and Foit Maginnis. Mont., which was intended to take the place of the line now in use via Camp Pop lar river. The reason for this decis ion is the probability of the abandon ment of Fort Maginnis at no distant day, on account of the "icat cost of maintaining it and the fact that the fjgion around it is settling up so fast t int the necessity for keeping it np will soon no longer exist. Such re dis as are absolutely necessary will He sult in aires be made on the Poplin* river line, and it is thought that, although very poor, it will answer all purposes for the present. Ottawa, Ontario special advices from British Columbia state a number of China men discharged from work on the Cana dian Pacific, made au attempt to wreck the train near Nicomcn on the main line. Thousands of Chinese are infesting that province. They are cut out of work, and are constantly committing outrages against liie and property. * Three students of the Harvard Medical School,, who last week passetl their exam inations, are far from happy. One wrote a most excellent set of papers, the other two copied them word for word, the ex aminer ranked them at 98 per cent. * He remarked, however, that as the three papers were identical, this gave the three but about 33 per cent, each, and as 50 per cent, ia required for a diploma, all tiiree were plucked, invidious distinction being arbitrarily made against any two of them who might be supposed to be the copyists. A Naples dispatch says: The most col ossal criminal trial of modern times was to have begun to-day at Catonia in Sicily. Tiiree hundred prisoners were to be put on trial, on charges of being members of Maffia secret society, which has long been the most dangerous of the secret orders, and is supposed to combine brigandage with anarchism. Many of the prisoners are wealthly and influential, and 112 law yers have been engaged for their defence. The government has no public building big enough for the trial, and have been obliged to postpone it till June. Husbandman: Should the Union Pacific build its road to Bozeman as now seems irobable, it occurs to us that the best move it could make would be to cross the Boze man range to Livingston and then build up the Shields river to the coal fields in the vicinity of Great Falls and on to Ben ton. Certainly the coal fields of this route are of themselves sufficient to warrant the building of such a line, even though it had no other prospects. But when we consider the passenger travel to the Springs, the wool shipments of the valley, together with the development ot the mines, promising an immense yield of bullion, the carrying trade of which would alone pay for the operation of a railroad, there can be no doubt of the importance of some railroad company seizing on to the opportunity to control it without delay. MONTANA NEWS. elected "uninstruc killed bj' a Buttle on Custer county ted" delegates. Bartholomen Kelly was cave in the Bell mine in Friday. Aii unknown man was found last week lying dead near the Multan tun nel. II« had evidently died from natural causes. Several prominent citizens of Bea verhead valley who have hitherto borne unblemished characters for up rightness, honesty and integrity have been indicted, arrested, and taken be fore the court at Deer Lodge on the charge of perjury in making and prov ing fraudulent land entries. Husbandman: The town has been lively in sporting circles during the past few weeks. Money has been plenty arid has been handled with the characteristic recklessness of counter feiters. One game of one hundred dollar ante was noticed, and a small fortune changed hands on a single turn. Fort Benton will subscribe one hun dred and fifty thousand dollars instock if Helena will subscribe three hun dred and fifty thousand dollars, mak ing on amount of $500,000 to be offered J. J. Hill, provided he will build a broad gauge railroad from Helena to Fort Benton, to be commenced the present summer and to be completed within two years. Finish the \\ ooluhed. [Lime-Kiln Club.] Judge Congo secured the floor to observe that another cornet was in sight, and that some people were pre dicting that it would strike the earth. He would like to inquire what the re sult would be in case of such collision, 'T has ijébber bin weirr dus to a comet.
