Preparations are being made for the proper celebration by the people of Liv ingston of the preseuce in the town of the eminent democrats now here— Honorables J. K. Toole, Martin Maginnis and R. P. Vivion. At 6 o'clock all persons interest ed in the result will meet at the Rink and there make up a precession which will comprise about 125 torch-bearers and the cornet band. After parading the principal streets the procession will lead the way to the Rink again where all that can get inside the building will be ad dressed by Messrs. Toole, Maginnis, Viv ion, Savage, and probably others. It is, at this writing, expected that a very large delegation will come over from Bozeman to attend the meeting. Important Minins: Transaction. The Maarinnis Mining company oper ating at Maiden and which consists mostly of s. t. Hauser and A. M. Holter of Helena has lately purchased three mines at Maiden in addition to two rich properties they now own in that district. The mines just purchas ed are the Kentucky Favorite, Key stone and Comet—all more or less devel oped and all bearing gold and silver. The sellers were Brainerd, Gardner & Co., and the price realized $100.000. at which price the mines are considered cheap. The Maginnis Mining com pany is putting up a new quartz mill with which to parry on extended operations. Trying: to get the Crow Lands. Referring again to the report that a Denver syndicate of stock-growers is scheming to .secure a long lease of the Crow reservation as a cattle range, the Billings Post says: "Further en quiry tends to confirm the truth of the report, and to .show that active and powerful influences are at work in var ious channels to complete this nefari ous plot. Members of this syndicate, powerful in political influence, and skilled in bringing pressure to bear where it will do the most good, are exerting themselves to induce the powers that be to look ftivorably on their land-grabbing game. On the reservation, money is being freely speni among squaw men, and others possessing influence over the tribe, to aid in securing the coryaent of the Crows to the lease. To f urther this purpose no means are left untried. The Crows are being deceived by skillfully devised falsehoods to look favorably on the proposed lease, while their minds are b» ing influenced against consenting to any portion of the reservation being thrown open for settlement." ***" Stebbins, Mund & Co*« New Building in Billing«. From the Billings Herald we make the following clipping which will be of inter est to many of our readers because of the connection of our Bank of Livingston w ith the Billings establishment: "The direc tors of the First National Bank of Billings have accepted the plans for a handsome block to be erected on Montana avenue and 27th street. The proposed building will be built of stone quarried from the bluffs in the vibinity of town. It will have a frontage of fifty feet on Montana avenue and 108 feet on 27th street, and it is estimated that it will cost at least $20,000. The windows will be of iron and plate glass. The basement will con tain rooms for a barber shop, baths and other purposes. The corner of the first floor will be occupied by the bank, the balance of the first floor being taken up with a store in the shape of an L. The second floor will contain eighteen rooms for offices and will be reached by a stair wav from Montana avenue. Tom Cover's Fate. Thomas W. Cover was on© of the pioneers of Gallatin county and of Montana and was for many years a resident of Bozeman. He was the sole companion of John Bozeman when in 1867 that brave pioneer was killed by Indians a few miles east of Livingston. Mr. Cover himself suf fered a slight wound at the time, but escaped death and carried the news of Bozeman's death to the people of the town that bears bis name. Now it appears that be has himself met a sad or see are on the the the for and in the is fate. Of late years he has been living in southern California with his family. A few weeks ago he went with anoth er man on a prospecting tour on the Colorado desert. The two men sepa rated and agreed to meet again at a certain rendezvous. Cover at last accounts had never been seen again. His companion returned and organized a party to search for him and the re sult is not known. It is thought im probable that he will be found alive aa he had neither food or water to sus tain him many days in the desert. Seriouft Accident. Yellowstone Journal: Whilst cele brating the event incident to the con templated holding of a Democratic mass meeting at Glendive on Thurs day evening, an anvil which was being used instead of a cannon for making reports, suddenly bursted. L. A. O'Brien was badly injured, and anoth er man slightly. The recovery of the first is said to be a matter of doubt. Stock News. Mr. Henry J. Wright of Shield's river has sold his entire herd of about 600 cattle to a lower Y'ellowstone strek-grower, whose name we did not learn. The price realized was $35 per head for all grades and ages, includ ing beef steers. The cattle are to be removed from their present range. Mr. Wm. M. Wright is preparing to make a shipment of beef cattle. Myers Bros., also of Shield's river, have released the steers they had rounded up for shipment, as they pre fer to wait rather than market at present prices. About 4.000 or 5,000 sheep in two bands have been driven upon the Shield's river pastures this summer and will winter there. Many think the range not well adapted to sheep farming on such a large scale. Flathead Valley. Among visitors in town yesterday were Messrs. Stoddard and Sumner, partners, who are engaged in farming and stock-growing un Flathead creek at the head of Shield's river. From Mr. Sumner we learn that Flathead valley is now occupied by as many as flfty prosperous settlers. Some months ago they sent in a petition for a post office on the Livingston and White Sulphur Springs route to be called Flathead. The petition was signed by over eighty persons whom the office •would have benefited, but for some in explicable reason the department has entirely disregarded it so far. It should certainly be granted as its es tablishment would involve no extra expense to the service and is urgently needed. The nearest offices at present are Livingston, White Sulphur Springs or Bozeman, 40 to 60 miles away. The Flathead settlers also wish to have a precinct organization of their own. They particularly wish the appoint ment <> f a road supervisor who will see to it that the road tax of that dis trict is expended in labor for the im provement of their own roads. They are also a great distance away from any polling place—so far that many of the settlers will forego their fran chise rather than spend two days in exerciing it. The board of county commissioners will doubtless adjust these difficulties as soon as called up on to do so. Flathead valley is one ol the most prosperous settlements in the county. Black Hills World: The late rains which are almost without precedent in the Black Hills, coming at this time of year, have started the grass afresh, and have created some tittle anxiety among stockmen, who fear the forage may not cure in as good a state as heretofore when the autumn months have been dry. Farmers, however, are benefitted, as the ground has been kept in good condition for fall plowing. Early seeding seems to generally produce the best crops here, and it is only by having the fields plowed in the fall that early seeding is made possible. It is stated by stockmen that the rains of the past month have not ex tended out to the Cheyenne, so that the damage to forage—if damage there be— is not widespread.
