TOURISTS CARRIED TO ANY PLACE. The Cheapest and Best Equipped Livery in'Town. F. E. SNYDER, Pop. The Mulligan Letters. In référé tee to Blaine's denial of«, the as sertion of Warren Fisher that he # ( Blaine) had offered a sum of money for the Mulli gan letters, given in the dispatches, Fisher reiterates his claim that Blaine d : d make such an offer. He declare that at the request of Elisha Atkins and at the special request of Mr. Blaine lie went to New York in thç spring of 1880 and met Blaine at the 5th Avenue hotel ; that then and there Mr. Blaine made a request to ob tain for money or otherwise from Jim Mul ligan all the lelters and memoranda in which Mr. Blaine had any interest. The amount was not limited, and he was auth orized to pay ten thousand dollars if he could not obtain them for less. Mr. Blaine said John Cummings, partner of Elisha Atkins, would furnish the money. The Independent Candidate Ill reply to the earnest request of a great many true-hearted republicans and democrats I have determined to announce myself as an independent candidate for the office of county su perintendent of public schools. It has been rumored by a few, who have not given the subject all the thought of which it is worthy, that the county is too large for a lady to take charge of its schools and it would not be safe for her to travel in Gallatin eounty. Every intelligent person will admit that nothing could be more beneficial to ladies than an abundance of pure air and out-door exercise, and to one who has been confined in the school room during the greater part of her life it would be a grand treat to have the privilege of visiting the country schools. It is an established fact that a lady is safer in Montana than a gen tleman, and even the road agent, who has no regard for the life or property of man, would scorn to injure a woman. I have always taken a deep interest in education, have regarded teaching as the highest profession and am certain that, as county superintendent of pub lic instruction, I could do much to elevate the standard of education in GalHtin county. Citizens: I do not come before you as a politician, but as a woman who is qualified to hold this office honorably, and, without discuss ing the political phase of the subject at this time, it is a self-evident propo sition that in business affairs and pro fessional vocations a woman lias the same inalienable right that a man has to do whatever she can do well. I be lieve that in Gallatin county there are a respectai le number of voters who are gentlemanly inclined toward « God's last best gift to man" and are willing to accord to her an equal chance in making a living by her in telligence. Gentlemen: T am the first lady candidate for public office in Gal latin com ty. Will you stain the fail record of Montana's fairest county by refusing to grant my request ? Adda M. Hamilton. at on ty of Joseph Cook. Our readers should not forget Jos eph Cook's lecture advertised else where. Those who miss hearing him will miss hearing one of the greatest orators, one of the most successful lecturers of the age—a man who has won unqualified admiration wherever the Anglo-Saxon language is spoken. His lecture, '-Seven Modern Wonders of the World," embodies all the rich gems of thought and the rare mosaics of description made up from a tour ot the world and close observation of all that his eventful life has brought be fore him. The lecture is under tlie management of residents of Livings ton. ___ Yellowstone Park. It will be remembered that last year at great expense H. B. Calfee, of Boze man, prepared a sciopUcon panorama of Yellowstone Park scenery. Being prepared by the latest and most im proved art methods it was and is prob ably the finest series of pictures of its kind ever placed before an audience. It is on the magic lantern principle, but vastly different and incompara bly ahead of the shows generally call ed by that name. The managers of the entertainment last winter were inexperienced and flew a little too high, and though it was praised in the at on highest terms in St. Paul and Minne apolis it became a financial wreck there. Mr. J. C. Skidmore now has the property in charge a id to-morrow evening will present tiie entertainment at the Skating Rink. He w-as very successful at White Sulphur Springs last w-eek and should delight a large auuience here. Bad Faith Alleged. A dispatch from Portland, Oregon, on the 10th inst. says: The Oregonian to-morrow will print interviews with the heaviest shippers of this city, showing the probability that a majori ty will not sign contracts next year with the Northern Pacific, but will give their business to the Union Pa cific and Oregon Short Line. The present contracts with the Northern Pacific expire January 1st next. The reason alleged is bad faith on the p irt of the Northern Pacific. Good Report of the Yellowstone. Bismarck Tribune: C. P. Wool folk, who has charge of the transfer boats at this point and who leaves as pilot on the Eclipse to-day, received a letter from his wife yesterday giving an en couraging report of the Yellowstone country. Hi 9 farm has proved profit able the past season, a splendid crop has been raised, the river is in .excel lent condition and the settlers are happy. Stanbro's Case. Some months ago a man named Stan bro, an express agent of the Northern Pacific at Hawley, Minn., seized upon $1,200 of the company's money and fled to Winnipeg, Manitoba. There he was arrested and an effort made to extradite him. He employed an astute attorney who was able to defeat the extradition proceedings on a technical objection that be dug up out of the musty catacombs of British law. As soon as Stanbro was released he was re-arrested at the instance of the ex press company and another effort will be made to bring him to Minnesota for trial. _ Stealing Amalgam. Jeptha Hall, who worked in the re tort building of the Drum Lummon mill, stole about »555 worth of gold amalgam. It w-as his intention to re move it in small quantities until he had obtained about »100,000 worth. He concealed w hat he stole from time to time, hut confided the secret to a fickle woman. She informed on him and the result was that he was watch ed and taken in the act of examining his Hidden treasure. He now awaits trial for his crime. Ths Baker City extension of the Oregon Railway & Navigation company has been completed, and is open for buisnoss through to Baker City and freight is taken through. A circular will be issued to-dav by the Northern Pacific road announcing that agencies have been established at the fol lowing points on the Pacific division: Columbia City, Ore., 31 miles west of Portland, John McDonald, agent; Hunters; Ore., 38 miles west of Portland, C. N. Aster, agent. M. T. Johnson, agent at the East St. Cloud. Northern Pacific depot, was found at 7:30 Friday morning lying insensibie in the office with a bad wound in the eye and a revolver lying at his feet. The money drawer was open with a small amount of change in it. He had been in the office about half an hour. How it happened is not known, but it is believed to have been accidental. The paper trade is in a ruinous condi tion, caused by the Government embargo on the importation of foreign rags. Dags have already advanced 30 to 50 per cent. During the past thirty days not a pound of rags has been put on a vessel bound for the United States in any foreign port. Paper mills in this country have a short supply or none at all, except in a few in stances, and domestic dealers have none on hand. This is especially true of the West. The domestic supply from remote sources is always scant at this season of the year, and must continue so until spring. By December 1st the 1,000 mills using 2,000 to 3,000 tons per day will have ground up all the rags in sight. Pa per makers are buying up stock.
