Some wicked wag has said that we may look for several marriages soon, as a consequence of the many divorces ap plied for at this term of court. Market changes. Soap has ruled very high in Bozeman the past week, but prices have declined and Chinese wash bills are no longer than usual. Other places may brag over their base ball nines, but the Bozeman boys are ready to try their skill with the champ ions. No others need apply. Warm weather has at last arrived and the bananas can now get a chance to ripen. Crops.are growing so fast you can almost see the change daily.

The marshal reports that there are a large number of disreputable characters town, many of whom, we presume have been brought here as witnesses. It well for citizens to be on their guard. C. 8. Fell, representing the Billings Herald made Bozeman a flying visit on Saturday last. He was very favorably impressed with the beauty and location of Bozeman. Prof .A. C. McComb of Tomah, Wis consin, has been tendered and accepted the position of principal of our public schools. His recommendations and en dorsments are of the highest character. H. J. Hoppy purchased a young elk from the Bannack Indians, now camped near town, and keeps it in his front yard where it is admired and petted by every passer by. _ The Herne A Roscoe combination have proved themselves to be a combination of first-class bilks. They are now in Livingston, minus their trunks and show pharaphenalia, which are held in Boze man for debt The new silver instruments for the Bozeman band arrived on Tuesday last. They are the finest in the territory, and the boys have already shown their abili to make sweet music with them. Maj. Blaine, paymaster of the United States Army, dropped in Monday on the Northern Pacific railroad on his way from Fort Maginnis, paid off the boys in blue at Fort Ellis and departed for Hel ena yesterday. Maj. Geo. O. Eaton returned from the east via the Montana short line on Mon day.

The Chronicle acknowledges the re ceipt of a report of the proceedings of the second annual convocation of the Mis sionary District of Montana, held in St. Paul's church, Virginia City August 27th and 28th, 1882. It is a neat book printed by D. W. Tilton, Virginia City. The Helena daily Independent comes to us enlarged by the addition of four more .columns, making now an eight column paper, full of associated press riispatches and general news. It is also printed on an excellent quality of paper. We are pleased to note such evidencesof material prosperity. We are under lasting obligations to Rountree A Quaw who allow us every week to copy the weekly real estate transfers from their books. This enter prising firm acquaint themselves with every transfer made in the county, and thereby not only benefit themselves, but do considerable work for us. A. W. Tanner an old resident of Boze man and at present engaged in opening up his extensive placer mines at Pole creek, gave the Chronicle office a pleas ant call. We sincerely hope the pluck and energy exhibited by this gentleman will meet with great success. There is no such word as fail with Tanner. In the marriage column it will be seen that Wm. Black has taken unto himself partner for life. The happy event oc curred on Tuesday night, witnessed by a few friends at the residence of Mr. P. Worsham, where the party were treated with that generous liberality for which Mr. and Mrs. Worsham are noted. The firany man on the Inter Mountain fills himself up with Butte bug juice and feels so mean over it, that he calls it Bozeman whiskey. It is strange what idiosyncrasies some people have, when they have imbibed too freely. As, Ik Marvel would say. "Diet yourself, get greens from the comer grocery, correct your biliary secretion and you may be happy yet."_ Jos. H. Hanson, railroad contracting agent of Dan Costello's New Colossal Nickel Plate Circus, was in Bozeman Saturday night He gave the Chronicle office a call. The circus will be here June 28th and 29th, and everybody with all the children should take it in, if for nothing else than to patronize the first circus in eastern Montana, besides it will be a first-cl ass one. _ We hear that some of the young ladies are complaining that their escorts keep them too long on the skates at the rink. They could stand that however, but the boys insist that they must cat ice-cream every little while and that is decidedly cool. Ice-cream is not as invigorating as a cup of coffee and a ham sandwich, and if the boys will insist they must furnish more substantial tore. Geo. H. Willson, express messenger running between Bozeman and Glendive, enjoys the reputation of being the most popular messenger on the road as well as the oldest employee in that position on the west end of the road. He has been given new cars for his run, which are constructed with the view of protecting the contents ot the cars from "road agents." Somebody is five hundred and thirty dollars better off than they were before our townsman Dr. Lamme came over the the Utah A Northern road. The old deacon who passed around his bat for a collection and receiving nothing in it, thanked God that he had got his hat back from that congregation. Dr. Lamme is tbankfiil that he got his purse back, although it was empty. Bozeman is promised a large amount of amusement during the summer. Fol lowing Wiggin's museum, which is now here, will come Sol. Smith Russell in his celebrated "Edgewood Folks," then Cos tello's circus, with its aggregation of stu pendous wonders; the other circus, Mc Gregory Bros., which will be here in August, together with ministrels, jubilee singers, etc., which are pointed this way. Davis Wiltoon agent has received the following: "The following change of rates will go into effect June 18th, from St. Paul and Minneapolis. Currency, $4.50, per $1,000; freight, $8, per 100 lbs.; soeciai produce, $7A0, per 100 lbs. Add tariff from St. Paul to eastern points for through rates. Notify dealers of this re duction and make it public as soon as possible." W. J. Footner, Supt. Express. In justice to T. P. McDonald who was arrested and brought here on the charge of killing a cow claimed by another party we would say that there was absolutely nothing whatever on which to base such a charge. The case was on the docket and the jury brought in a verdict of not guilty, without leaving their scat. There should be some law to compel the com plainants in such cases not only to pay the costs but also damages to the defend ant. "Ye editor" was awakened from his slumbers Friday night, by delicious strains of music. An investigation led to the discovery that the Bozeman Silver Cornet Band were out with their new and handsome instruments. The boys were invited in, but owing to their tem perate habits would only take' a cigar. Bozeman has reason to be proud of such a band, and we hope their efforts to please the public will be duly appreciated. Come again hoys, but don't surprise us so. We acknowledge the receipt with the compliments of the authois of a directory of Billings gotten up by Messrs. Hendry & Fell. It is a very neat and well gotten up book, giving a complete list of the adult population of the city, including class and location of business of business houses; also a history of Billings and the Yellowstone country. It is dedicated to Hon. Frederick Billings, who was a gen erous patron of the enterprise. It may not be premature to announce that one will be gotten up for Bozeman at an early day. _ Rev. Mr. Stevenson will hereafter oc cupy the pulpit of the Presbyterian church, commencing with next Sunday. Services of an interesting and helpful character have continually been kept up at this church in the absence of a regular pastor, and the interest in church mat ters been kept alive, for which they de serve great credit. To the credit of Bozeman it may be Baid that churches are well attended, and Sunday generally observed as a day of rest from business pursuits. The new time table which went into effect on Friday from Livingston to He lena makes the ride over the mountain one hour faster than before. Passenger trains going east leave Helena at 5:30 a. m., Bozeman, 11:30 a. m., and Livingston at 1:30 p. m. Going west leaves Living ston 12:45 p. m., Bozeman 3:20 p. m., and arrives at Helena at 8:50 p. m. The sta tions between Bozeman and Helena are, First Siding, Second Siding, Gallatin, Third Siding, Toston, Townsend, Bed ford, BcaverandClasoil. The farewell words of Mr. Wylie in the morning and the original lecture of Mr. Davis Willson in the eveningatthe Pres byterian church, almost causes a feeling of regret, that these gentlemen will be superseded by a regular pastor. These gentlemen with others of that church have exhibited commendable zeal in keeping up services for the period of twenty-one weeks in the absence of a pastor. While we have almost a feeling of regret we congratulate the gentlemen that such a burden will be taken off their shoulders. We bespeak for the new pas tor and wife a cordial and hearty wel come from the community. The Wiggins' museum of living curiosi ties arrived on Monday, pitched their tents on the green sward near the skat ing rink, and on Monday night were visited by a large number of the curious. The museum consisted of three monkeys, one macaw, two snakes, one bat and some canary birds. The iron-jawed man who lifted an oil barrel filled with water with two men sitting astride of it with his teeth was really the feature of the enter tainment, and aside from that the exhi bition is hardly worth the admission fee. The glass blowing was a novel to many, also the manner in which money was ex tracted from several young men who wished to draw a pair of vases and in stead drew worthless prizes. The Jehu of former days who handled a team of six over mountains and through rugged defiles with such consummate skill, has become a thing of the past. They are being laid away, not by death but the tread of the iron horse is fast leaving Othello without an occupation In their way they were characters, and when once they had mounted the box and learned the mysteries of handling a team of six they seldom forsook it for any other occupation. We have taken many a ride with them and heard their discourse over the merits of their teams, with what pride thev would watch their movements and how wedded they were to them. Just now we call to mind the death of one who had long presided over the reins on the road leading from Car son City to Placerville, Cal. The road was over mountains, around steep and fearful looking grades around which he would whin his coach with fearful speed. He was dying and faithful friends were watching his bedside. The sands of life were slowly ebbing away, when a com panion said, "How do you feel now, Jake ?" "I feel like I am going down hill and cannot get my foot on the brake.' Taken in connection with his business was not this a poetical expression ? But times have changed. Now, instead of the six horse team whirling up rapidly at the hotel and the cry of "all aboard,' for the different stations on the line. The "bus" is continually on the street to convey passengers to and from the rail road depot. Sad eyed and disgusted the Jehu sees the change and longs for the days of stage coaches, aye even for road agents, but they will come no more for him, and lie can lay away his venerated and silver mounted whip stalk as a sou venir for coming generations, who will wonder how people could ever endure such a mode of travelling. We drop a tear to your memory, ye pioneers of civi lization. The game of base ball between the Spring Hill and Bozeman nines resulted in an overwhelming victory for the Boze man nine. A large number of people were on the grounds and it was the gen eral opinion that the Bozeman boys are hard to beat. At the end of the sixth inning for the Spring Hill club, it was agreed to discontinue the game, the score standing five for Spring Hill and twenty five for Bozeman. We learn that the Bozeman nine will play in Helena on the Fourth of July. They have been chal lenged by the Butte nine, but will not play that nine. The grand jury failed to find an indict ment in the case of the Territory vs. Nathan C. Lay and Geo. A. Lowe, charg ed with the killing of Irving Hunter, there being no evidence to sustain the charge. It will be remembered that this case caused considerable excitement at the time and very strong expressions of indignation at the defendants, but not withstanding they have come out un scathed. The Chronicle at the time cautioned prudence and a calm investi gation until the defendants had a proper hearing and trial. The land entry of Hunter, over which the tragedy occurred has been cancelled and unless an appeal shall be taken and judgment reversed, thecontestant Nathan C. Lay will become possessed of the land. The question of who had the right to the land; would have been an important one, in case there had been a trial. The attention of the Board of Trade, at their next meeting will be called to the feasibility of establishing a stock company, to operate and build a street car railway from the court house to the depot. In Billings there is a street rail way in operation, and notwithstanding, that it is patronized solely for pleasure it has been made to pay expenses. In Bozeman the situation would be different, the car would be patronized through necessity. The cost of grading, laying iron, etc., would not amount to $10,000, and the cheap fere would be the means of making the street car the most jwpular mode of traveling, and a paying invest ment from the first. We understand that one of the cars at Billings can be purchased, and we sincerely trust that the matter will be of such importance as to command the attention of the board and its practibility discussed. Sol. Smith Russell. This famous comedian, who we have mentioned at length several times before will make his appearance in Bozeman Saturday and Monday, June 23rd and 25th at the Palace Theatre. The eastern press speak very highly of this gentleman and our people should take advantage of liis isit. Reserved seat tickets are for sale at the drug store of Messrs. Ilinchman & Alward. By all means go and sec "Edge wood Folks/]__ Death of Theo. Sw ltzler. We regret to learn of the death of Theo. Switzler, son of J. C. Switzler of this place. As near as we can learn the facts in the case are as follows: On Wednes day the 13tli inst., he was engaged with, others in rounding up cattle in Lake basin, anil while cutting out a cow from the herd his horse stepjied in a hole and threw him forward violently on the ground, bruising his head considerably, the horse rolling over on him and the pommel of the saddle striking him on the chest, inflicting such injuries that he lived only twenty-four hours. Theo, has been engaged in the cattle business for a number of years and was considered of great service by those with whom he was associated. He was for a number of years in the employ of Messrs. My res and Martin of Shields riyer. Our sympathies are extend ed to the liereaveil family. Real Estate Transfers. "Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win." There are a great many doubting Thomases in Bozeman, who unmindful of the lessons that their own observation has taught them, are letting the golden opportunity of their lives pass by unim proved. Here is Bozeman situated at the gateway of the richest valley in Mon tana, with mountain ranges on all sides whoes mineral wealth has not had even the most superficial prospecting and with a section of farming land which it if were all cultivated would support a city of 25, 000 inhabitants, and yet many of our old timers shake their heads disconsolately and say, "we can't tell" now any one who reasons at all from cause to effect, must know that not only the Gallatin valley, but all Montana will take marvelous strides in development, now that we have railroad connection with the out side world. We have a population at persent of 60,000 inhabitants, who enter ed the country by the old red stage coach method at twenty cents a mile or by the "slower than the wrath of God" manner, the bull-team. Now does any sane man or woman suppose that this 00,000 is a charmed number, incapable of change. Railroads are skilled mathematics in at least one branch—Multiplication—and when Bozeman has worked out one of these examples of progress then, and not till then, will the croakers learn what they have lost. Meanwhile there are enough who believe in the country to make the real estate market firm and present a fair showing.

Wade, Chief J attire Territory of Montana : Sir :—The Grand Jurrors of the County of Gallatin, Territory of Montana, lieg leave to report that we have concluded our duties, and we submit the following : We find the offices, jail, court house and poor farm in good condition, except, We would recommend further accommo dations for the poor, and while we under stand that the county commissioners are making preparations to enlarge the pre sent quarters, it is the opinion of this jury that a good substantial building should be erected, rather than to attemj t to patch up tlie one now in use. In the matter Of the court house we find that tlie roof is becoming somewhat impaired, ami immediate attention should lie given this, that it may not become a subject of much importance. We believe, as a rule, the county offi cers to be dilligent and efficient in the discharge of their duties, but as a matter of caution we would call attention to tlie seeming earlessness or ignorance of Jus tices of tlie Peace. From the evidence and papers brought before this jury it seems that, needless trouble and,expense lias been entailed by the injudicious use of their powers in issuing warrants for arrest, causing expensive examinations, binding over and incarcerating persons without sufficient cause or evidence. As to the sanitary condition of our city, we beg to state that we consider it in as good condition as it would be pos sible to expect under the circumstances, taking the inclemency of the season, and the fact of the recent organization as a city. We have confidence in tlie newly appointed officers to regulate this matter as speedily as jt is possible to do. Very respectfully submitted, Lester S. Willson, Foreman. Billings, the "Magic City." During a recent visit to Billings we found tlie town very qfllet, but an ex hibition of faith on tlie part of the citi zens that is very gratifying and well founded. Billings has a location that can lie depended upon—a location that will make it a railroad town, a cattle shipping, bullion shipping and a town backed up by numerous and well-paying farms. The fact that it is at present dull and quiet is from natural causes. The town is only one year old, it lias grown with almost -unprecedented prosperity, and it now waits the development of its resources and tlie investment of capital. In short it is only a matter of time when Billings shall take its position as one of the leading towns of the territory. Bil lings is blest with at least one good "rust ler," in the person of Mrs. Tomlinson, a dealer in real estate, and a woman with remarkable energy and push. She lias now a building under her supervision, which, when finished, will cost fully $10, 000, and will build another at once for a cattle man on the western end of Main street, near the depot. Tlie building now being erected will be occupied by Dr. Bole's drug store, and commands a large rent The doctor, by the way, was the sue cessful candidate for Register and Re- j Minier of Yellowstone countv during the • last election, and will make an enviable fortune from his receipts. We could not ! help but notice the carefulness with i which the county commissioners have j managed the affairs of the office; and it is evident that the history of Custer county j will not bo repeated in Yellowstone j county as long as the present commis- | sioners are in offiee. ! The new Congregational church is al- ; most completed, and is a fine structure, lmt not as handsome upon the outside as a structure costing $10,000 should have been made. During our visit Father Pallinado, of Helena, made arrangements for the building of a Catholic mission, consisting of a eliurcli, school and a hospital. Mr. Fred Foster will donate the ground, con sisting of about two acres. The plans for a county jail have already been accepted and the building will be put up at once. A sclioolhouse is talked of and should he built, the larger the lietter, and the citizens will find this the most economical measure. There is one unsightly thing which we could not hut notice, and we presume every stranger does, and that is the filth that is allowed to accr.mmulate in tlie alleys and hack yards. The expense < f cleaning up would be small and the beauty and health of the town greatly enhanced by a few days work. Thé store of P. W. McAdow has a large trade, and besides forwards a large amount of silver bullion to the east from tlie Barker and McGinnis mines. Eight cars were shipped on Saturday last. Sam f Alexander and Ed Conely are still em ; ployed by this firm and make a point to treat their visiting- acquaintances with the same open-handed liberality as of I yore. Rumor has it that Ed is about to j be married, and we hope the report is ; correct, as none is more deserving of such a glorious fate, j J- J- Alderson presides over the des j tinies of the street car railway, which I runs about two miles—to Coulson. The trip is made in twelve minutes over a very smooth track and many curves. Mr, Alderson undoubtedly, understands the e nstruction of a railroad as he has made this one that all may be proud of. This is the first street railway ever established in Montana, and while it may never be made to pay large dividends it certainly bespeaks for its progenitors and stock holders a very enterprising spirit. Its jiatrons are those who ride solely for pleasure, and Mr. Alderson has had at tached to every ticket a coupon which entitles every rider to two glasses of beer from Ash A Boot's brewery at Coulson, an establishment which ranks second to none in tlie territory.

General Winfield Scott Hancock is now, in liis Sixtieth year, still hale and hearty. In 1866, while in command of the Department of the Missouri, he took the field in person in two campaigns against hostile Indians. The military men and the old pioneers of Montana all know by experience what a cam paign against Indians means. It was such campaigns that protected Gallatin county in its early days, it was such also that opened the way for settlement of the great Yellowstone valley now traversed for hundreds of miles by the Northern Pacific Railroad. But not alone are we indebted to the military for protecting us to the best of its ability, we are also indebted to many of its prominent officers for taking a financial interest in our fair city and assist to develop its varied and valuable interests. Prominent among these gentlemen we may mention Gen. Jas. S. Brisbin. Letters from his facile pen have called the at tention of thousands to the wealth of our city, county and Terri tory, and it is a pleasure to know that through confidence in the future the General made investments in our city and county that has brought him thousands of dollars per annum. Col. T. J. Gregg is another gentleman who has deservingly made money by investment in city property, and we have every reason to believe he will do still better in the future. These gentlemen used discretion in their purchases. They had traveled ex tensively and judging from their observations came to the conclusion that Bozeman must some day become as large a city as the leading places in older settled Territor ies and tlie eastern states, Acting on this view they made investments which have not only paid princely rents lmt have also increased in value, some two-fold and some even three-fold. Why not do like-wise? The same opiiortunities are available to-day. In our own days we shall see Bozeman many times its present size. We can remember hen hut a few years ago W. W. Alderson platted thirty acres as an addition to tlie to the town, persons jokingly asked him if he expected to live till people would build on tlie lots farthest from town. What is tlie result? To-day lie has but three lots out of one hundred and eighty put on the market and lias been compel led to tear down his pasture fence and give business men of tlie city more ground on which to tobnild residences. This new addition comprising forty acres, is all within half a mile of the Graded Schooljhuildiug, on ground well drained and nicely situ ated. Look this property over and, our word for it, you will find it better, more con venient to the the city, and for sale on more reasonable terms than those offered by any one else. Mr. Alderson also has, almost adjoining the city; a farm of 240 acres, a Iwnanza for anv man. wffich can lie had at a bargain. Gardner & AY''-lie, FIRE INSURANCE AGENCY.
