Barnard and wife, of upper Sun river, were In town last week. John Donnelly will shortly return to his old home in New York City. Quite a number of the round.up boys paid Sun River their respects last week. The Benton Daily Record has enlarged its size to six columns. An evidence of proye "ity. A large crowd were in attendance at the Republican rally at Murray hall last Wednesday evening. The "Seul Skin" cigars, at Thos. Rose's, are a little ahead of any two.for.a.quarter cigars In town. Try one. The Sun River String Band has secured the services of a clarionette player, which makes a marked difference in their music. The freighting business is putting on some of its old-time appearances, and nearly every day an outfit passes through town or unloads hero. Campaign refreshments of the liquid liluJd order seem to have unusual vitality this year for some reason or other. It is probable that it is mixed. The military band at Fort 8haw furnish. ed the music at the opening of the Re. publican campaign at this place, last Wednesday evening. Their music was superb. E. Lippincgtt, postmaster at Florence, accomianioed by his son, was In town one day last week. Mr. Lippincott reports everything in the South Fork country as booming. Immediately after the speeches Wedn. esday evening Hon. Illram Knowles and W. IH. Hunt left by private conveyance for Flat Creek, where they overtook the IIlenacoach. W. N. Baldwin, candidate for treasurer on the Republican ticket, was in town last week and called at the Sun office and left his autograph on our subscription book. Mr. Baldwin Is a youngman full of prom. iee and will do credit to the office if elected. Joe Davis, nominee on the Republican ticket for Probate Judge, paid Sun River a visit last week, looking over thi polit. enll situation, which he thinks looks fair for success for the ticket in the coining oldction. iMr. Davli is well and favorably known throughout the county, and will be an honor to the office and a credit to his party if elected. During Hon. Hiram Knowles' address last Wednesday evening, ia man loaded and primed with campaign refreshments, took it upon himself to criticize some of the remarks of the speaker. After re. peated attempts to make him desLst,which made no impression on him, Deputy Shor. It Steel, who was in the audiencc, walk. ed the gentlaman down stairs and put him il the root house, in the roar of the Sux office, for safe keeping. The prisoner not liking this state of affairs struck a match tad set fire to his prison. The fire soon gaihlne considerable headway, and was imaking it rathellr uncofortable for the occupant, and lie conmlenced to cry for help in a lusty manner, which soon cnme, and ilberated him from his unenviable position. Tell minutes more and the poor devil would undoubtedly have suffocated in the prison. It was lucky that the fire dlid not communicate to the adjoinihg building, in which was stored some 200 cases of coal oil, or a serious confiagration could not have been averted. lSheep From Washington Territory. lion. W. C. Gillotte, of Dearborn, now In town, states that while on his way to Helena he met two large bands of sheep that have just arrived by trail fromn Wash. ington Territory. One band of 2,700, be. longing to Messrs. Goyotte & LaChapelle, "'t'L to be placed on Flat creek, on the ranch formerly occupied by the Dearborn Shleep Company, but abandoned by them sad since taken up by the gentloemen above nalned. The other band, number. hag 8,700 owes atdi lambs, were on the wiay to a range on Suill River. He did not loarn the name of the owners. It is estl intated that the sheep brought into Mon. tanl from the west this year will greatly Outnumber those of any previous year. The average cost at the place of purchase is about '2.50 per head. It costs about 'tOcents per head to bring thenm through in bands as large as those mentioned Obove, and oni their arrival here they are Worth from $3.00 to $8,50 per head--so it Will he seen that with ordinary lIck sheep iirlvag is not unr'rofitable. HIIrald. TERRITORIAL PARAGRAPHS. Venison has made its appearance in the Benton market. There are plenty of ducks and geese at Jlarwood lakes. Four soldiers were arrested at Missouli for stealing cattle. The assessment of the town of Bozeman foots up S1,800,000. A hand of 200 buffalo were seen In the National Park last week. The Butte base ball team scooped the Zion's in Salt Lake City. A band of Butte dudes are masquerad ing in Idaho as a base ball club. The contract for building the new pent tliry has been let to McDevitt & McCon. nell, of Butte. Joe Campbell, In self.defense, lshot a hard character named Russell, at Marys ville, recently. Wm. J. Dwyer was bound over to court under $1,000 bonds, for calf stealing, at llelena last week. Cusick & Robinson pounded each other at Butte last for an hour or two but failed to draw much blood. David Austin, a county commissioner of Missoula county, accidentally shot and killed himself on October 14. A monument to Wm. Fairweather, one of the discoverers of Alder Gulch, is pro. posed by Madison county pioneers. Mr. Jacob Hoover, the famous hunter of the Judith, promises to bring in a load of deer, elk ai:d mountain trout for our citi ells' Christmas and New Years' dinners. -Record. The Boise Statesman, under the head of "Military," mentions the marriage of Gen. McCook, commanding officer of Fort Douglass. This refers to the raising of Infantry, most probably. From J. S. B. Matheson, who came up from Fort Maginnis last Saturday, we learn that about fifteen head of horses were stolen Thursday night from the set tiers on Cottonwood creek. The thieves were thought to be Crow Indians. They crossed the mountain south of Maginnie and went in a southerly direction. Citl. zens were in pursult.-Ilusbandman. On Monday evening last as the Living. ston coach was comingdown Smith River valley, the team took fright when in the vicinity of Crosby & Co.'s ranch, and be. coming unmanageable, upset the coach and drug it some distance and finally broke loose entirely and ran off over the prairie. The driver and a Mrs. Harris and two children, who were on board, were slightly injured.--Hlusbandman. Tile threo deputy sheriff of Custer county, Louis King, Frank and Jack Con. ley, who were indicted for refusing to obey the mandates of a writ of habeas corpus issue by tile court in Dawson county commanding them to deliver the alleged horse thieves whom they had captured with forty horses in their poe session, were each held in the sum of $500 to answer at the next term of court. Tail Feather, of the Piegan tribe, who has been in the employ of Henry Kenner. ly near Fort Benton, for the past five years, and who has become a thorough, practical farmer, has concluded to take up. land under an act of congress, and will at once go into business for himself. How little was It expected that a simple Indian would solve Dundreary's problem of how a bird of a feather could "go off and flock all alone by himself." A New York paper has this to say of the great chief: "You may enter the pres. ence of Sitting Bull with a brass band, turn hand.springs before him, smile,weep, or have convulsions, and he will sit there and look at you with acool, bead-like, and intelligent, but utterly uninterested eye. Nothing disturbs him; he never smiles, and before he delivers a remark he thinks it over carefully, turns into a dozen dif. ferent shapes, then expresses it with the weight of a philosopher and sinks Into silence for another twenty-four hours." The abundance of cayotes around town seems to indicate the dying out of the olt wolfing instinct among our citizens. These pests Ihave become so daring in their chicken stealing raids that they come even under the windows of the houses on the outskirts of the city, mak. ing night hideous, yelping alongthe foot hills. The city council should pass an or dihtance forbidding coyotes on the streets of Benton and declaring them a nuisance. Such an ordinance might possibly appeal to the dormant energies of Marshal ltHuk as an old-timer. We know him when he was at good wolfer, but that was before he became city marshal.-Record. Bismarck Tribune: Abouta month ago a soldier at Fort Yates named Macnerly, having received his pay and procured his monthly supply of the joyful, thought he would gain fame and notoriety by swim. ming the Missouri, starting from a point near the fort. lie was not seen or heard of again until a few days ago, when lis body was found on a sand bar about four miles below the post. The body had evi. dently been out of the water some time, as the head, hands and feet had been eat en by the coyotes. The body was buried by the soldiers. There is a moral in this which it is needless to give to the gallant young swimmers of Bismarck. Cheyennes Who Rate School. A .Miles City special telegram to the Pioneer Press says: Father lBarcello, who has charge of the Cheyenne school and mission at the confluence of Otter creek with the Tongue river, arrived here to. night, also Tom Cook and others from that vicinity. Father Barcello says the Indi ans have had dances there during the past week. lie saw one in which about lifty participated, while Bull Black Horse and Yellow Horse lead the Cheyennes. These and Young Man Afraid of Ills Ilorse, with twenty Sioux, have just left here for Pine Ridge. The Indians, especially the Sioux, have been inebriated, and the Chey annes are excited over a report that they are to be removed to the Rosebud. The priest thinks the Cheyennes need an agent to make them work. Ho seemed pleased º to heiar th:t there is a prospo't of their having an agent. He says school com. menced this season with fifteen Cheyenne pupils, but now there are only two or three that attend, their parents having moved most of the lodges across the river, and claiming they were hungry, and the children had to pick berries and plums for food, lie advocates a hoarding school, but says they are getting more rations now, and may feel better satisfied. They may have a fight with horse thieves It they find them. Tom Cook reports that he has not yet been molested by Chey. ennes for several days, but would not be surprised to see them troublesome. The twenty Sioux took back to Pine Ridge forty good horses that were presented to them by the Crows. Five more Sioux buve Just arrived at the Otter from Pine Itidge, and he says that a large number are following them. Indian Strategy. The Mandan Pioneer is authority for the following: Antelope are more numet. ous this fall than ever before known along the Missouri division of the Nor. thern Pacific. Herds of from 50 to 180 are seen daily along the track in the Cur. lew valley and in the vicinity of Knife river and other points west of there. On Monday Captain Wrenshall, Superintten. dent Green and Roadmaster Ray, in the special car, Crow Wing, attached to freight train No. 18, witnessed a novel and successful mode of hunting antelope. As the train pulled into South Heart, four antelope, surrounded and corralled by bears in a small valleynearthetrack were discovered. The engineer slowed up the train a little and Captain Wrenshall got out his Winchester and took a shot at one of the bears. The motion of the train marred his aim and the bullet missed its mark. And luckily so, for at that instant up rose the supposed bear, and shaking off a blanket revealed an Indian. The other bears showed up in like manner. The Indians, by getting upon all fours and fixing up their brown blankets into a re. semublance of ears, nose, tail and legs, made themselves a close counterfeit of cinnamon bears, which struck panic Into the hearts of the foolish antelope and placed them In such position that they were about to an easy prey to their real assailants-the Indians. Having discov. ered his mistake Capt. Wrenshall began shooting at the antelope and killed sev. eral. New Cheyenne Agency. A Washington special, of the 7th Inst., says: The Interior Department has heark. coed to the complaints coming from the Tongue and Yellowstone country of dep. redations by the Cheyennes and will re move these thieving and starving wards from the vicinity of Miles City to a new agency to be established between the Lame Deer and the Little Muddy. The special agent sent out to investigate the charge of cattle killing by the Cheyennes reports in favor of the change, and the department will act favorably upon the report. Butte Hoodlums. Yesterday afternoon a couple of young Ihoodlums, not having any deviltry on hand at that particular moment, conclud. ed to make things warm for an inoffensive Chinaman who was engaged in sawing wood at the residence of Henry Jonas. The Mongolian chased them away and re turned to lis work, thinking the boys had had enough fun with him. lie was ilis. taken. One of tie boys picked up a rock and burled it the Chinaman, striking him in the eye antd completely blinding him. The poor fellow's lamentations were long and loud, and only till some parties ap. peared on the scene did he cease. lie was taken to a surgeon's office near by where prompt attention was given him. He will probably lose the sight of his eye. --Miner. Missing Man. Tihe wife and friendsof Isaac Cookman would be glad to receive intelligence of him. lie was last seen by friends at Cheney, W. T., on the 28th of June, but probably passed through Lewiston, Idaho, a few clays after. lie is a miner by trade; is about 5 feet 10or 11 Inches high, brown hair and moustache, first and second fin. gers on right hand taken off at middle joint. Ills intention when last heard from was to go from Cheney through Lewiston to Walla Walla, where he expected to meet two friends, and from there proceed to the Wood Itiver country to obtain work. Any information concerning him will be thankfully received by llis anxious wife, Mrs. I. Cookmian, at Wellington, Kansas, or by Platt McDonald, Democrat office, Plymouth, lad. Fair Association Election. rThe stockholders of the Montana Agri. cultural, Mineral and Meclhanical Associ. ation held a meeting Wednesday evening, at which tile following board of directors was elected: President--W. A. Chessman. Vice Prelsident---. II. ''utem. Treasurer--A.J. lavidson. Secretrary--Fraucis Pope. The other directors are Messrs. C. D. luird, .. Schuyler Crosby, 8. If. Crounse, 1'. C. Power and A. lershcleld. The excitement over the discovery of reported paying gold diggings on Birch creek is canlming down senowhat. The ground on the creek has been extensively located and considerable prospecting is going on now. Until further develop. mLeuts tire made the vatlue and extent of tihe diggings are matters of speculation. The board of equalization of Custer county heard legal argument inl tile case of tihe Northern Pacific railroad company muade by council seeking a reduction in tile rate of taxation assessed against that ] corporation. At first a motion was made, but not entertained, to tile effect tihat the entire assessment be stricken from tlhe roll. Subsequently the assessment per mile was reduced to $875. A Dillon man writes to a lelecua paper and pitches into tile bounty law as fol. lows: "I know of seventeen bear being killed within a year and no bounty paid becoune the men who killed therm were frustrated by tile quirks and qulbbles of the law. 'l'he law as it stands is a dis grace to the men who framed it, and much t more so to the men who passed and sign. ed it. It was undoubtedly made for a hneflt. ibut it is really an iinjry." a MISCELLANEOUS ADVERTISEMENTS. fPAIR. =EALING. Low PR.SZOI.
