The Enterprise has received the wedding cards of James S. Thompson and Clara L. Parkhurst. married at Jkidgewater, N. Y., on the (3th inst Our best wishes are for their happi ness. It has been rumored that vice presi dent Oakes, of the Northern Pacific, lias accepted the general managers!)!} of the Union Pacific; Mr. Oakes authorizes the unequivocal denial of the report. A gentleman who left the uppei portion ot the National Park yester day morning said that the open ground there was covered with hail to the depth of two inches and that the weather was very cool. This rainy weather is bad for the cattle interests. The cured grass on the ranges, soaked by repeated and continued rains, loses a great part of its nutritious qualities and becomes a poor article of fodder. The Pacific express due at 3:35 this afternoon is delayed sixteen to eigh teen hours or more. The heavy rains to the eastward have caused washouts along the Missouri division between Manda» and Glendive, and lienee the delay. The motion for a new trial in the case of Frank Young, convicted of murdering Dan McCarty at Cooke last summer, was argued before the su preme couit yesterday and decision rendered. Gen. John B. Sanborn, a prominent Minnesota attorney, ap peared for Young. The scheme for a telegraph line from White Sulphur Springs to Town send, which was at one time reported to he definitely arranged for and cer tain to be built this year, has not got beyone the embryotic stage and will not be built. We hope to see such a line built from Livingston during next year. A letter from Surveyor-General John 8. Harris, commissioner for Montana <»f the New Orleans Exposition, says that he and his associate commissioner hope to be able to make a fine exhibit <>f Montana products of every descrip The letter says the fare on all lion. railroads will be one cent per mile, and the round tr>p from Montana points wifi cost about $50 fare. 8.

The townsite includes about 470 acres. The survey was made by direction of Mom' Armstrong and at bis expense. The soap fakir who was here the other day has been going through the singular and amusing performance of |*ul»lic!y denouncing another soap Eikir as a fraud.

These cars have been constructed especially for the Oregon fruit traffic, which is ex pected to assume considerable magni tude in the Northern Pacific. At each end of the car are iron screens which allow the air to circulate among the cases of fruit inside. This carload is, we believe, consigned to a St. Paul firm. PERSONAL POULTS. Mr. and Mrs. F.

Rew ind arrived last evening from toe Rosebud, bringing word that the Cheyenne storehouse, fifty-two miles up the Rosebud, was burned on Wed nesday morning. High Walking, a Cheyenne Indian living near by, dis covered the fire in the morning and discovered a white man's trail, a high heeled boot with toes pointing out. which he tracked to a horse trail and then followed that two miles until it was lost, from which it is argued that the storehouse was burned by a cow boy. There were no stores in the house at the time, hence the only loss entailed is of the building, which was one of the buildings erected by Col. Dyer last winter. It was valued at about $600. _ An Old-Timer. Charles Mercier, now living in Choteau county, 80 years old, lias lived in Montana since 1827. He came irom St. Louis with tiie first party that vis ited tliis territory after Lewis and Clarke. The winter of 1826-7 was spent at the mouth of Hart river. The following summer they came to the mouth of the Manas and remained there for some time. Mr. Mercier as sisted in the building of Forts Cotton. Brule and Benton. He smiles au liblv when the reports reach hiai of an old-timer's association being formed in Helena of people who for the most part date their residence back only to from I860 to 1863. its Iu Memory of l>r. Glick. Independent: The monument to be erected at the Helena cemetery to the memory of Dr. Glick lias arrived at the deimt and will ne placed in position this week. This monument was pur chased. it will be remembered, by the doctor's old-time Montana friends, and ,ts cost was over 37M. Old-timers in all j tarts of the territory contrltmted to the fund. The shaft is nearly eleven feet high. The l-edestal consists of three , «rts. a granite hase 111, ee feet square, and on this will rest two hlocKs ,,t marble, the tipper one being in scribed with the umeot the deceased, on J I. to D end B. IT Jev. lent one and g 5 The east tion ter al on the I and the lower one with the inscription "From His Pioneer Friends." The shaft, or monument proper, contains the regular inscription, all being in raised letters. The whole will consti tute a handsome and lasting token of the high regard in which Dr. Glick was held by old Montanians. Sharpers Caught. This morning shortly after the east bound train left Garrison a gang of sharpers tried to work a first-class pas senger with the three-card monte rack et. It was in the smoking car whither one of them invited him to smoke a cigar. The passenger understood their game as soon as it was proposed to him and immediately left them and notified the conductor. The conductor did not molest them, but telegraphed to officers at Helena to l>e on hand when the train arrived. The sharpers then tried to work'the emigrant car and warned the passenger who had "peached" on them that if he inter fered again he would be killed. When the train reached Helena the officers arrested the gang to the num ber of five. One of them was recog nized as being wanted for a murder committed a year ago, and was covered with a revolver as soon as seen by the officer. All of them were respectable looking, well dressed fellows. The Virginia City (New) Enterprise says: The Central Pacific Railroad has always been inconvenienced by the scarc ity of water upon that portion of its road which crosses the Great Desert. About two years ago W. C. Chapin, who has bored between seventy and eighty wells m the Pennsylvania oil fields, was employ ed to sink a well at White Plains, Nevada. Alter nearly seventeen months of continu ons work the drill has reached a depth of 2,100 feet, and is passing through a strat um of rock below which it is believed the desired fresh water will be found. If not, the work will probably be abandoned. The bore, which was at first eight inches, has been considerably lessened and the depth increased. Boiling water lias been struck and salt water passed through, and still the a,500-pound drill goes down ia search of the much wanted fresh stream. At the depth of 1,700 feet something very remarkable happened. The drill struck and passed through nine feet of solid wood. The singular point about it was that, although the wood had turned en tirely black, owing to its long burial, it had not carbonized in the slightest, but could be whittled and broken like wood above ground. Its having turned black prevented Mr. Chapin from determining its kind, but lie sent quite a number of pieces away to friends and lias a few left. Much of the wood came up in pieces, but little of it pulverizing under the actien of tlje drill. SPECIAL MENTION. Oats at Sebrec, Ferris & White Co.'s. Give them a eall.
