Published every day except Sunday. WEIGHT * HENDRY, : Publishers. LIVINGSTON, M. T, SEPT. S. 1884 Entered at the postoffice in Livingston, >1. T. as secoud-class mail matter. The republican convention of Washing ton Territory has nominated J. W. Arm strong as candidate for delegate to Con gress. Mr. Armstrong, if we mistake not, is register of the Spokane Falls land office. Col. Lounsberry, now the publisher of the Bismarck Journal, an excellent week 13 ' paper, proposes to begin the issue of a daily edition of the same on the first of next month. He says it will not be a campaign sheet, but a permanent institu tion. We learn that Judge Henry N. Blake, of Virginia City, formerly an associate justice of the territorial supreme court, will accept (if tendered him) the nomina tion as district attorney of tills district, and that his name will be presented and strongly backed in convention. One T. L. Dawes is opposing C. P. Blakely, our present sheriff, for re-nomi nation to the office by the democratic convention. He will most probably get left. The prominent republican aspi rants for the office are A. J. Edsall, ol Bozeman, and Thomas Hamilton, of the western part of the county. All the leading Tammany managers, including John Kelly, held a meeting in New York to discuss who should be the candidate of the organization for the presidency. Most of the gentlemen present said Cleveland w'as the faverite in their respective districts; a few said But ler was the candidate of their people. The meeting adjourned until next Fri day evening, when definite action will be taken. _ Major Brisbin writes from Boise, Idaho, that T. F. Singisser, the present incum bent, will be renominated by the republi cans as candidate for delegate to congress, and that John Hailey (after whom the town of Hailey w r as named) will receive the democratic nomination. He says the success of either party depends upon the Mormons, who control three counties and hold the balance of power which they are willing to throw to eitiier party that offers them the greatest concessions. The commander of the German gun boat Wolf, has taken formal possession, in the name of the German empire, ol all the west coast of Africa, between the 18th and 2Gt!i degrees of south latitude, with the single exception of Walvisch bay, which was annexed to the British pos sessions a few week s ago by the authorities of Cape Colony. Germany is evidently inaugurating a policy of colonial exten sion. It is also said that the German government hopes to get such a finger in the present Chinese difficulties as will en able it to acquire a share of the spoils. The New' York Sun says of Secretary Folger: He was a good judge, and had he been elected governor of this state, he would have made a good governor. His defeat, the conditions under which it oc curred, and the consequences wdiich it en tailed, were more than he could bear. He never recovered from the shock and dis appointment of that disaster. It was to him the completest of shipwrecks; and not even the distinguished preferment that the president bestowed upon him when he called him to the national treasury, could banish or alleviate his overwhelming sense of it. Like Horace Greeley, he furnishes another sad and instructive example of the dangers that men ruu when they yield to the temptation which chance throws in their path, and grasp at high places they were never destined to till.

The treasury department received a let ter on Saturday from Dr. Hill, United States health officer at London, asserting that the exportation of rags into tiiis coun try from England is fraught with great danger from smallpox. He says it lias been for some time prevalent in Loudon, where quantities of rags are collected and sent to America, which undergo no process of disinfection previous to exportation. The German bark Montezuma, Capt. Simonson, from Buenos Ayres, arrived at Falmouth, England, with three men be longing to the yacht Mignonnette, who were found on the w ay from Southampton to Sidney. They report that when the vessel went down they and a boy, all on board, took to a small boat without 'pro visions or water. For nineteen days the}' drifted about when the boy died. The others fed on his body and were enabled to hold out five days longer, when the Montezuma rescued them in a horrible condition. The three men wen 1 placed under arrest w r hile the death of the boy was being investigated. Fancy Pigeons far the Knitan. * [Is »v York ,'::nes.J The steamship Chigwell, which left this port recently for Odessa and Se bastopol, carried ^50 fancy pigeons for the royal lofes at Constantinople. These birds included blondinelles, satinelles, swallow s, s arlings, beards, baldheals, pouters, pigmies, runts, nuns, helmets, shields, almonds, rose wings, badges, saddles,' short-faced montes and solids, a:\hingels, fairies, spots, scauderoous und homing pigeons. The order called for every color in each variety ; but this it was found im possible to obtain in pairs of good specimens. The birds w r ere in the loits of The Fanciers' Journal for sev eral weeks before being sent away, and they attracted much attention from fanciers as a collection of rare ex cellence. Utica Press : Better stop with the rudiments to be acquired at the com mon school, than deliberately to send boys where, with a smattering of the classics, they are sure to receive seri ous damage to their moral and physi cal natures, in consequence of lax dis cipline laxly enforced. R EPUBI.ICA N COX V KXTION The Twelfth regular biennial Republican Territorial Convention of 1 lie Territory of Montana will be lielil AT HELENA, ON THE 27th DAY of SEP TEM It ER, 1884, at 12 o'clock, noon, For the purpose of nominating a candidate for Delegate to Congress, and the transaction of such other business as in the judgment of the convention appertains to the welfare of the Republican party of Montana. The several Counties of the Territory will be entitled to representation in the Territorial Republican Convention as follows, to wit: Counties No. Delegates Ueaverhead............................ 3 Choteau............................. 2 Custer..................................... 4 Dawson................................ 1 l)eer Lodge............................. 4 Gallatin.................................... 7 Jefferson ................................. 4 Lewis and Clarke ................... 7 Madison................................... 4" Meagher ....... 5 Missoula..................................... 3 Silver Row.............;...................... 10 Yellowstone......................,......... 2 The Co. nty Republican Committees of the several counties will proceed to call county conventions in their respective counties ami eleet delegates ana alternate delegates from each of said counties to the Territorial conven tion above designated'. It is desired that sufficient notice of such con ventions be given. The Territorial Republican committee respectfully recommends that the said county conventions he held in the last half of the month of .September, but such date should he fixed therefor as, after giving due no to thy Republicans of the counties, will be most convenient. It is presumed that, the custom heretofore p réuni ling in the several counties of the Ter ritory whereby delegates to the Territorial convention are elected from the respective counties by the i^onventions which assemble to nominate county officers will prevail during the present year. To the end that till counties in the Territory remote from or near to the place of holding the Territorial convention, shall have opportunity to he represented therein fairly, and lo prevent any extraneous interference with the deliber ate desires of the Republicans of each county, the following rules have been prescribed by former conventions for the.government of the Republican Territorial conventions in the Ter ri tory çf Montana : 1. Delegates and alternate delegates shall he elected in the future to Territorial conven tions. and in the event of a failure of a delegate to attend the Alternate Delegate shall cast the vote of the delegate whose alternate he is. 2. Iu the absence of a delegate ami his alter nate a majority of the delegation from that county shall cast the vote of the ab» ntee. 3. In the absence of all the delegates and Al ternate delegates from.any county, no vote shall be cast for such county. 4. In the county in which the Territorial con vention shall be held when any delegate and his alternate delegate arc-absent there shall be no vote cast iu their behalf. , 3.
