Our attention has been called to the
fact that wood is being floated down

to it anyway, as it is calculated to drive
the fish out of the stream and that inter

room proper will be at »out 30x70 with an
arched ceiling and all handsomelly de

the building will be ready for occupancy
some time in July.
The roller skating race on Thursday'
attracted a large crowd to the skating
pavillion. The Bozeman brass band was
also in attendance, and during the even

music. Morg Thomas started first and
made the mile, 21 times around the
room, in 4 minutes, 18 seconds and a
quarter. Cohen then made the mile in
4 minutes and 45 seconda The prize of
$50 was then handed to Thomas, who
was declared the winner.
A setter dog walked into the Geyser
Saloon the other day, where a parrot sat

dog true to his instinct immediately

The parrot happened to be one of that

dog for a moment and then offered the
following advice: "Go home you d-d
fool." The dog dropped his tail between
his legs and darted out of the saloon and
has not made his appearance there since.
Our friend A. P. Clark is loud in his
praises of Chicago and the hospitable

sich. All Montanians hunt up Rod and
he knows how to make their visit a pleas
ant one. We used to put up with Warren
Leland in the "Auld Langsyne" when he
kept the Occidental, San Francisco and
can cheerfully recommend him as a
prince of Landlords, to all Montanians
who visit Chicago.
An enterprising rustler, rejoicing in
the euphonious title of Buckskin Jim,
(no relation to Yankee Jim) lias squatted

Macarty's ranch, on the north side of the

Notwithstanding the eligibility of this
site for a town, B. J. could well afford to
sell out cheap, as he has no claim what
ever to the land, and yet Buck is the bad
man with a pistol in one hand and a
knife in the other, who lifted up his
voice so vociferously last winter against
claim jumping in Clarke's Fork mining
Those who did not attend the lecture
delivered by the Rev. L. L. Wood on
Thursday evening at the Presbyterian
church missed a great treat. It has been
a long time since we have had the pleas
ure of hearing a more pleasing and we
might say versatile address. The subject
of "Rustling" was treated from a business;
social, moral and political outlook. At
times humorous, then pathetic and at all
times eloquent. We were very sorry that
no more of onr people turned out and we
trust the reverend gentleman will again
favor us. The uncertainty about his
coming and the race at the Skating Pavil
ion no doubt kept a good many away.
Should he again consent to deliver a
lecture, we assure the public they will be
amply repaid in attending.
Sheriff Blakely in carrying out an in
tention formed some time ago has had a
search instituted in the jail. The search
so for has resulted in finding two saws
made out of knives and also a saw frame,
a bottle of very strong acid and one bolt
missing in one of the cells. The tools
were found in the cell of the man who
committed murder in Rocky canyon.
The sheriff has promptly confined all the
most dangerous suspects in the cages,
and perhaps none to soon, as in all prob
ability before court convened a jail de
liver}' would have been the result. We
understand the search will continue and
the utmost vigilance will be kept up at
least until the dangerous characters now
confined have been dealt with according
to law.
All those interested in a base ball club
will meet Wednesday evening at Wood
son's barber shop, for the purpose of
effecting an organization. Bozeman has
sufficient material to not only form the
best club in Eastern Montana but of the
entire Territory, and a cordial invitation
is extended to all interested in Americas
national game. Helena, Butte, Missoula,
Benton and Livingston have all organiz
ed, and now is the time for Bozeman to
take the first steps in this direction. The
Spring HU1, Ft. Ellis and Livingston
clubs are anxious to make a match with
the Bozeman club, and it is time for our
boys to make an effort, and if they take
an active interest in the club, we shall
have no fears whatever of the result.
Every one is urged to be present.
President Villard.
As President Villard has been here it
may be of interest to our readers to know
how he got his start and accumulated his
large fortune, which is estimated from
$20,000,000 to $25,000,000. Villard was a
young German of respectable but not at
all aristocratic family who came to this
country some years before the war. He
had a knack for business, and although
for some years he had to be a newspajier
correspondent and get beaten around
from point to point, he kept money in
his mind. He made his first money in a
big whiskey deal in Washington. Aware
that taxes would have to be raised in
order to provide the government with
the revenue, he addressed himself to
knowing when and to what extent the
taxes would be raised on vital matters
like whisky, tobacco, etc. In that way
he became connected with Horace White
who was a political correspondent, clerk
of committee, etc. Those men and a few
of their friends made good round sums of
money for that day, perhaps $50,000 to
$150,000 apiece.
The Weit End of the N. P.
While sauntering around the depot on
Sunday, our reporter met Mr. Orr, of
Kansas City, who was waiting to take the
eastern train. Mr. Orr lias l»ccoinc very
wealthy dealing in Kansas City real
estate, and perhaps is as well acquainted
with dirt in its various forms and condi
tions as any one.
As Mr. Orr made the trip to San Fran
cisco and back on business solely, lie is
probably better able to give an unpre
judiced account of the country than any
one we are liable to see for some time.
He stated that he was twelve days from
San Francisco, which is remarkably fast
traveling, considering the great distance
to be covered by a coach. He said that
during the greater part of the journey
through Washington Territory it rained
incessantly. A large number of washouts
had caused delays and considerable ex
pense, at one place a side of a mountain
had slid for a distance of 300 feet, and
after passing the breech it seemed incom
prehensible to him how the cars were
gotten over the temporary track. When
asked about tlie advantages of Washing
ton Territory he said he foiled to see
where it was better than Montana, and
thought it would be folly for a jioor man
to leave this country, where there could
be obtained so much cheap and good
laud. The valleys he said were indeed
beautiful, but in every instance they were
all taken up by thrifty ranchmen. The
lumber business he said was the only
opening a business man of wealtli could
find, and he thought many large fortunes
would be made at that business.
In answer to our question about Spo
kane Falls, he said that jieople were com
ing to it from every direction, but unless
they could live on scenery he failed to
see how they could subsist. The water
power, he said was first-class, but inas
much as the country for eighteen miles
in any direction was an uncontrovcrtable
gravel bed, he failed to see where the
power could ever be put to any use. He
further stated that as far as he had seen
Bozeman and its surroundings they were
as fine as any, and that the city's future
could not be controverted. There are
many who have got the Washington
Territory fever bad, and if the opinion of
those who have been there and returned
to Montana can be taken for anything.
Montana oilers far better inducements at
present to the settler.
Bozeman's New Additions.
M. S. Deutch, one of the most expert
draughtsmen in the country has prepared
a plat of Bozeman and the new additions
from Mr. Hollidge's reliable field notes,
which is the most artistic piece of work
ever done in the Territory. The plat
has been prepared for lithographing, and
in addition to showing streets, blocks and
lots will contain data as to the resources
and development of the Gallatin Valley
and the City of Bozeman, which will be
invaluable to parties abroad desiring to
make investments in Bozeman. The lo
cation and cost of the principal buildings
in the city will be shown, and on the
margin of the* plat will be printed the
buildings themselves and street views
and scenes. These may be sent to par
ties in the east by which they may de
termine the centers of business, resi
dences etc.
Among the new additions shown are
the park addition of Story, Cooper and
Dickerson. Tue other additions are the
Spring Brook, of Dickerson, Koch and
Cooper, and Prospect addition of J. S.
Dickerson, on Main street, also Story's
addition, and the amended plat of Hoff
man, Tracy and Black's additions. These
are all shown in their relation to tlie
original township, the principal improve
ments and the main thoroughfares. A
more comprehensive and artistic piece
of work of like character was never
transferred to a lithograph stone. The
draughmen of the land department of the
Northern Pacific have also prepared a
fine plat of that addition from Mr. Perry's
excellent notes and drawings. These are
now in the hands of the lithographer,
and will be circulated upon the return of
Col. Lamborn from the Pacific tour. With
the interest now at work for the deve
lopment of Bozeman it ought not to
require a vision prophetic to foresee that
Bozeman is laying the foundation of a
city of no mean dimensions. All this
city needs is that its present condition of
prosperity and resources of its immense
tributary territory for future develop
ment shall be advertised to more than
realize the most sanguine expectations of
its most enthusiastic citizens.
Vice-President Oakes has gone to the
Pacific coast.
President Villard and party arrived in

western division will reach Missorla and

dle of June. The company will then
issue their tickets from Portland to St.

Secretary Teller addressed the follow
ing letter to the attorney general recom
mending the institution of judicial pro
ceedings against Union Pacific Rail
way Company to determine the trus
meaning of the "net earnings" clause of
the Thurman act.
Department of the Interior,
Washington, May 11.
Attorney General, United States.
Sir: —I have the honor to transmit
herewith copies of letters addressed to
me the 18th ultimo and 8th inst., respect
ively, by the commissioner of railroads
and exhibits accompanying tho former
relating to monies due the United States
by the Union Pacific Railroad com
pany. The commissioner recommends
his letters and exhibits be transmitted to
you to be considered with his letters and
exhibits of the 2nd of February, for the
institution of legal proceedings against
said company, for whatever sum may be
found due tlie United States, and for the
judicial determination of what are "net
earnings," within meaning of the act of
the 7th of May, 1878. He finds the 6um
of $825,905 to be due the United States
from said company for the year ending
Dec. 31, 1882. This added to the sum due
the 31st of December, 1881, $901,837,
makes a total of $1,727,742 due the United
States on the 31st of December, 1882. Be
fore transmitting to you the pajier here
with, I deemed it proper to make a formal
demand on the president of said company
for the said sum. I enclose herewith a
copy of my letter to him of the 21st ulti
mo, making such demand, and of his re
ply thereto of the 1st instant. The views
of the commissioner of railroads on Dil
lon's letter are expressed in his letter to
me of the 8th inst., copy herewith, be
cause of the refusal of the company to
acceed to my demand for a settlement of
the sum due, I concur with the recom
mendation of the commissioner that such
judicial proceedings be instituted to en
force the demand as may, in your judg
ment, best deem fit to protect the inter
ests of the United States.

A Night Ride to Gallatin City, and What
Came of it.
Monday eveningabout 8 o'clock Sheriff
Blakely received a telegram from Galla
tin City, that a riot had commenced and
requesting him to bring a posse to quell
it. A locomotive and caboose were
placed at his disposal, and in less than
half an hour the posse was summoned
and on board the car. A Chronicle re
porter thinking there was "music in the
air" and a chance to write up a blood
curdling story accompanied tho party.
Conductor McKay whirled tho party
down to Gallatin in fifty-three minutes,
and uvwn arriving at the scene of tlie
disturbance tlie Sheriff marched his
posse, consisting of sixteen men, upon
the town of Gallatin, which consists of
about four tent or canvass houses. A)»out
thirty men were standing around who
were immediately ordered to throw up
their hands and march to a given spot,
when they were surrounded by tho jwsse
and the parties charged with the disturb
ance were duly arrested and put on the
cars and brought to Bozeman, arriving
here about 12 o'clock the same night. As
near as our reporter could glean the facts,
they were as follows.
A man by the name of Charles Miner
had been indulging too freely, and in
company with a vyoman was making a
bedlam of the little community. He
struck one man a violent blow and shot
at another. Excitement ran high and
matters looked threatening when the
Sheriff, as above stated, was summoned
by telegraph. In a conversation with a
gentleman there, the reporter remarked
that it looked a little foolish to telegraph
and have the Sheriff come there with a
posse to arrest a man and woman. He
said, "You do not know what might have
been the result if only a small party had
come. There are a good many hard
cases here, whose sympathies are with
the prisoners, and you came witli suffici
ent force to overawe them. It has a good
moral effect anyway, because it shows
that the law' will be uppermost, and in a
speedy manner will vindicate itself."
We could not but admit the force of the
argument. We think, that although the
results did not comport with what seem
ed a very grave thing, it nevertheless
teaches a lesson to the lawless, though
at a distance from the county seat where
the officers are, but a short time will
elapse before they can be brought face to
face with them. We were impressed
with the soldier-like precision which cor
ralled the town of Gallatin in less time
than we can write it.
Real Estate Transfers,
Slowly but surely spring is causing
winter to beat a retreat. Green grass,
budding trees and myriads of mountain
wild flow'ers have taken the place of the
cheerless brown hue that covered all
objects but a short time before. Farmers
throughout the valley have the most en
couraging reports of seeding already
done, or nearly finished. The disagree
able weather, while, no doubt, annoying
to city folks, is w orth its weight in gold
to agricultural interests. Every indica
tion points toward a fullfilment of the
prophecies of our "old timers," that the
crop of 1883 will he unprecedented.
In harmony with these facts there has
been a healthy movement in real estate,
as the transfers taken from the books of
Rountree & Quaw will evince. These
gentlemen report an important sale of
$19,887 worth of Henry Villard mining
stock to Mr. Chater, of Fargo, Dakota,
who represents a syndicate of English
Important sales of Clarke's Fork pro
perty are on the tapis. One of Roun
tree & Quaws prospectors, who has just
returned from Cook City, states that in
spite of the snow, a vast army of gold
seekers are already in the mines, and the
rush lias only just begun. Several good
discoveries have been made in Bear
Gulch, and a late report, not yet fully
confirmed, has it that a bonanza lias just
been brought to light on Mill Creek.
Each day shows more conclusively that
Bozeman is destined to be the great
center for all these newly developed
One of Wisconsins most eminent
judges, who passed through Bozeman
last week, said in an interview with Mr.
Quaw : "Your city possesses boundless
possibilities. Montana is a vast and un
explored treasure house. The N. P. R.
R. is the kev that has unlocked its doors,
and your city must of a necessity share
in this wealth." These words are from
a man who lias succeeded both as a judge
and a financier. He is one of the few
who in an early day could predict and
comprehend the subsequent develop
ent of Colorado and the growth of Den

Progress of The City Park.
The proprietors of the City Park are
carrying out their well matured plans for
providing our citizens with a splendid
resort, with business like promptness.
Work is in progress on the ground and
by the last of the week, this fine six acre
plat will be seeded in clover, timothy,
blue joint and orchard grass, fenced in a
workman like manner and the trees set
out in accordance with the æsthetic plans
drawn by Mr. Deitch, tlie skillful
draughtsman, late in the employ of the
Northern Pacific. Water will be supplied
from a ditch, which runs through the
premises. The largest and best adapted
trees to the climate and the season have
been secured and set out. No pains or
expense have been spared to lay the
foundation of a park, which will be the
pride of the city.
When Messrs. Story, Cooper and Dick
erson laid the plan for this park they re
sol veil to tarry forward the work to the
end that this shall be the future breath
ing spot of a spacious and well ordained
city, and around which will soon cluster
the finest residences within the corpo
rate limits of the municipality. Here is
the high ground, the fine water and a:r
which renders a residence in this beau
tiful valley a daily jov. The spacious
streets laid out here will also be beauti
fied, when water works shall have been
secured, by rows of shade trees with a
back ground of floral carpeted lawns,
such as are seen in that paragon of a city
of the plain, Denver, tlie pride of tlie
(Çntennial state.
We ' notice with regret that Mrs. E. R.
Gage of Gage's station, on the Yellow

Bozeman, May 16th, 1.883,
Twelve years ago when I came to Boze
man I brought all my worldly wealth
(less than two thousand c.ollars) with me
and cast my lot with tlie pioneers of civ
ilation hereabouts, with an expectation
to make a home and live among the ad
vance guard. Since that time my busi
ness has increased from five thousand
dollars the first year to twenty thousand
dollars the last year, and I am proud
of the record I have made, and feel a
just pride in my customers, who have
enabled me to achieve such a success. A
year ago, the march of improvement
caused me to vacate the log house corner
of Main and Bozeman streets, at which
time I commenced the building of a
more spacious and comfortable building
to accommodate my increasing trade. Af
ter two removals and one fire, I am at
last settled in my new quarters,
where I hope to see all my old friends
and customers, and the public generally,
whether they wish to purchase or not. I
hope they will come in aud take a look
around and compare the old with the
