The Cheapest and Best Equippe Livery in. Town. o The Democratic Meeting. The Rink was well filled on Satur day evening by an audience assembled to hear the addresses of local demo cratic speakers. The number in at tendance seemed somewhat greater than has ever gathered at a political meeting in Livingston and comprised a large number of ladies. F. L. Mm tie, member of the county democratic committee, called the meeting to order and himself delivered an address of considerable length on local affairs and national issues and candidates. J. H. Elder followed with a very able speech. The matter of the address was excel lent-full of truth, thought, logic; and good language. We have heard some, who are probably more jealous than critical,object (for w r ant of some other flaw) to the style as too much after the declamatory order. That is a fault of all young orators and one that is over-* come by practice. Judge J. A. Savage followed with a recommendation of the local democratic ticket and then a speech that scored point after point against the republicans and their ad ministration—the kind of talk that was appreciated and understood by the majority of those present as was fre quently testified by their applause. Mr. D. J. Kennelly concluded the speech-making of the evening. He referred to the absurd claims of late republican speakers in Livingston that free trade had brought Ireland to her present plight and showed how the cause was the removal of all the money from the county by non resident landlords. He also cited his own observation as well as statistics to prove the comfortable, contented condition of English working classes who had been pictured by our repub lican friends to be in such miserable squallor. Altogether the meeting was a great success, and democrats of Livingston may well feel proud that from among their own ranks they can, without special effort, produce such a demonstration. Wreck of a Stock Train. The train due here on Saturday af ternoon did not arrive until Sunday, twenty-four hours late. The delay was caused by the wreck of a bridge and freight train a very shoit distance this side of Medora As our reporter was able to understand it the train ran upon a rail on the bridge which had been taken up by the section men and not spiked down, nor was the train flagged. As a consequence the loco motive went upon the wood work of the bridge which broke and let the engine and five cars of stock fall into a miserable wreck. Of the cattle in the five cars the number killed is placed variously at from 40 to 75. Those that escaped rushed away into the bad lands. The engineer and fire man escaped without injury. The bridge was repaired to allow the pas senger trains to cross with the delay noted. A later report says the cattle be longed to the Stoddard & Howard com pany, that 81 were killed and 47 es caped into the bad lands. The North ern Pacific effected a prompt settle ment of the damage. Montana Theives in Manitoba. Winnepeg telegram: The round-up ©f horse-theives in Montana having made it rather uncomfortable for these gentry, they have now crossed the line and are now in the vicinity or Fort McLeod. On Friday last, the mounted police came upon a few of the thieves with a band of horses in their possession. They raided the camp and arrested one of the men named Rath well,but the others made good their escape across the country back into Montana. Northern Pacific Officials. A special train came in to day about 1 o'clock from the east bearing the Northern Pacific officials who since Sunday night last have been out on tour of inspection of the road and its branches. The party was made up of T. F. Oakes, vice-president and gener al manager; i. T. Odell, assistant gen eral manager; J. M. Hannaford, gen eral freight agent; G. W. Cushing, superintendent of motive power and machinery; C. S. Fee, general passen ger agent; Gv S. Barnes, head of the a S. R. Ainslie, division superintendent, and several ladies- The party will go through to the Pacific coast. Louis Riel Killed. A telegram from Calgary in the Cana dian northwest states that it is reported there that Louis Reil was shot in Prince Albert during a riot there, and that the wires have been cut. Wild rumors are also current that Major Crozier and his command at Battleford have been massa cred. The latter is apparently improbable, but the riot and Riel's death are looked upon as not unlikely by Prince Albert people now in Calgary. Louis Riel was since his half-breed re bellion in Manitoba a resident of Montana near Fort Benton, till he went into Canada this summer in responsq to the solicita tions of the disaffected half-breeds. When he went away he promised to come [jack and help out the republicans this fall. It will be bad for them if he has at last got what he long deserved. Ohio Election Figures. From the Associated Press: Un expectedly the prohibition and green back votes in Ohio increased propor tionately with those of the democrats and republicans. The prohibition vote last year was 8,362; this year it is 9,510. The greenback vote last year was 2,937; this year it is 3,700; thus showing that th*ere was no coalition, but that party lines were closely fol lowed. The total greenback and pro hibition vote is 12,447, or 1,126 more than Robertson's plurality. The rest of the republican state ticket has an average majority over all of more than 5,000 in a total vote of 780,373. Last year it was 716,186. In October, 1880, it was 724,967. There is no change m the congressmen except an increase of 158 in Romei's majority over Hurd. PARK NOTES. The people of Gardiner sent in a petition to the secretary of the inter ior last winter asking the privilege of cutting dead wood within the Nation al Park for fuel or other purposes. The reason given by the petitioners were that the dead wood in the Park prevented the growth of grass, ob structed the escape of game and serv ed no human purpose where it lies. The secretary very kindly granted the privilege. Superintendent R. E. Carpenter is taking advantage of the good weather by getting in winter supplies of for age and provisions. The superintend ent is rapidly becoming acquainted with those who reside in and near the Park. His frank, affable and agreea ble manners are winning him many friends. Even the exercise of por tions of his duty that may be rather unpleasant, is done in such an agreea ble manner as to avoid giving offence. He is firm without being arbitrary and definite without being agressive. This good weather is most favorable for operations in the Park. C. F. Ho bart is actively engaged getting out material for a new hotel in the Upper Geyser Basin. C. T. Hobart is bound to furnish good accommodation for the next summer's travel. He is one of the irrepressibles who, like the Phœ nix, rises out of its ashes renewed, invigorated, and determined to over come all obstacles. Disease Amons: the Horses. Helena Herald: Dr. Long, veterin ary surgeon of this city, states that the disease, (catarrhal fever,) with which the horses of this and other portions of the territory were affected last winter, has made its reappearance. The disease is contagious and its germs seem to fly in the air. It sweeps over the country, when it comes, in a wave. This time it seems to have come from the west, Walla Walla horses having been affected with it a week or two before its presence here was observable. The symptoms are a cough, resulting from lung inflamma tion, and with.animals that are not in the best condition it is proving fatal in a good many cases. It seems to be entirely a cool weather disease, when the animals are particularly liable to coughs and colds. At present it ex ists in all part of the territory, ex* cepting the eastern part. «
