No one is to blame for the failure. Phil Meals, who got out the first attachment, ;.d i the ball rolling, did so to protect StlMaf, stPbhe thought all was notrgit t dty le way be wasu received at the bank ,..siism bhseasled to ask to be released as a , baleena oa the Arm's note.

"'- Jd so of the failure, we do not pro. tI tend to know; some attribute it to the n 1"bpi'.agaastio of business through.

The e*,ept,of the failure will be felt the most 11 pyp omoqpus small creditors, who hold Seagainst the Arm in amounts ranging ''M 0 to $700 and $800, and it Is to ''be hoped thatthese will not be allowed to slet the loss of the entire amount. . The senior member of the firm, Mr. 'S lI611, Ias been doing business in Sun Jliver ever sinae there was such a place, "aid has commanded the confidence and e!s'em of his patrons.

Steve Byman purchased twelve hundred of the band of sheep brought to this Ter. ritor from Callforqla by R. P. Hamill. Everybody proposes doing a cash busi. nes. now. They say they had rather have mouldy goods than mouldy bink accounts. We learn that Wm. II. Hunt and Col. Leamlnng addressed a large and enthusi. atile audience at Choteau last Friday eve. tl ning. a Jim Halford, the rustling candidate for f sherlff on the Democratic ticket, was in I town this week. Jim says it he diesit f won't be his fault. tl The failure of George Steell & Co. Is n no sign that Corson will fall to fix your b wagon, shoe your horse, or mend your plow, for money. *2t Sun River has been over run with can. didates for county offices the past week. Glad to see the boys, as they are liberal ( and make business lively. 0 Chas. McGuire came down from the r mountains at the head of Sun River post I1 haste one day this week.

This is to be ai perianent appointment in future: here in the morn. Ing, Fort Shaw at nighlt. We acknowledge a call front Sam. L. Kelly, Republican nomilnee for the very importult offilce of clerk and recorder of Chloteau county. Mr. Kelly Is a young man of good bIusiness quallilcautions, and stands a fair chance of beoig elected. Col. B.W. Murray and wife have moved down to their ranch in the valley. Mr. Murray has' one of tile best locations in tihe valley, and under Ils personlal supe)r. vision will make one of the best produc. Ing and prettiest ranclles in the country. Report reached town Sundny night, that a cowboy was held up and robbed of $280 lIst Friday evening,hetween thie Lonvings and Twenty-Eight-Mile Springs. We do not vouch for the trutll of the report, but give it to our readers for what it is wotrth. Messrs. Fargo and Miller, who were "held up" a few weeks ago in the Prickly Pear canyon, by the higllwaylnan Schlnci. der, passed through here last week en route for lelenuc, where they will testify against their assailacnt on November Uth. Mr. Moore, who lhas j list returned from a visit to the Barker district, rieports tllat all the people, who will renalin in the cacamp during the coming winter are comn. 1 fortably situtated, and well supplied with the necessaries of life. There are five or , six men at work in the Motuntain Chelo mine, which is considered the filrost prospect yet discovered in the district. In a letter received from Thomas W. Murphy, dated Little Rockies, October 28d, he says he says he arrived there the night previous, and that the outlook is very promising, and that as soon as lie comes to a definite conclusion as to the probable worth of tile mines will furnish us with a letter. Matthew Carroll, of Helena, was in town a few days the past week. Mr. Car. roll Is a candidate for clerk and recorder of Lewis and Clarke county on the Demo. cratic ticket, with all the chances in his favor, as he is a man of sterling charnc. ter, good business qualities, and has ever been Identified with the best interests of northern Montana. Last Thursday Joseph Hill, a Teton rancher, was kicked and instantly killed by a vicious broncho. It seems he was driving the team in a wagon, and stopped to repair some defect In the Iharness,when the animal kicked him, breaking his neck. We understand the deceased was a man well and favorably known in the Teton country, and leaves a family to mourn his untimely end. The first quarterly meeting in connec. tlon with the M. E. church will be held here November 8th oud 9th, the P. E. of Helena district presiding. The oflicial board are requested to meet Saturday eve. ning at tie school house. After preach. ing by Rev. Mr. Conmfort the business of the church will be attended to. Subbath morning, preaching at 11 o'clock, Sucra. mnent of the Lord's Supper following. We acknowledge a very pleasant cll from Mr. W. J. McCormick, of Missoula, one day last week. The gentleman was en route for Choteau, where lie has large stock interests, and from there lie will make a drive of beef steers to the Canus. dian Pacific. lie will beln attendance at the National Stock.growers' Convention at St. Louis on the 18th of November, and will see that this section is properly and justly presented. Mr. R. P. Hamill started one evening last week for his home in Wells, Nevada. Mr. Hamill is a candidate for the Assem bly from his county, and we venture to say that the say that the gentleman will be elected, and will fulfll the duties of lie office to the entire satisfaction of his constituents. During his brief visit in section he has made many warm friends whose best wishes go with him to his home on the Pacile slope. Several parties have been in town the past week, who have just returned from the Little Rockies. They all speak favor. ably of the diggings, and predict wonder. ful discoveries in the spring. If the mines prove to be what has been claimed for them, the good they will do this por. tion of Montana can hardly be compre. headed. Despite the few unfavorable reports which reach us, we are Inclined to believe that a veritable stampede will be made towards that country as soon as spring opens up. RaIv.eoorge Comfort returned on Mon. clay last from a pastoral visit to the varl. ous towns and Methodist socities in the Yellowstone Valley, and reports that the religious Interests of the various connmmun. itles from Livingston to Glendive are fav orably progressing. His next tour will include Beaver Creek, Helena, Sun River, Benton, Judith Basin, Deep Creek and Gallatin. Mr. Comfort has, perhaps, the largest presiding elder district in tile world, comprising, as it does, an area of about one thousand square miles.-Avant Courier. Last Sunday night abont 2 o'clock Mrs. D. A. Ford's and Thomas Clary's l.lrn on their ranch, about three miles down the valley, was consumed by fire, along with several tons of hay, gr, grain, harness, four calves, tools, &c. Before the fire was dis. covered it had gained such headway that was apparent that It could not lbe headed off, consequently all their efforts were di rected toward saviug such property as could be removed. Will Ford had a team of horses in tile barn, which was all that could be saved before tle lire mnade it hm. possible to re-enter the building. The loss is about $2,500, uninsured. The barn was new, having been built this season. It is thought the lire was started by some tramp who had engaged lodging for the night In the hay loft, as there was where the fire started. Mr. Hlumphrey, who lives near Great Falls, found a horse on tile range last week, under circumstances which,to say tile least, are suspicious, and polnt toward mm tragedy of some sort or other. The aniulial is i bay, and when found, tile bridle rein was over tile pomel of tile saddle, itnd tile ami. mal was reduced to almost a skeleton, showing that it had been without food or water for ten d:ays at least. Th'ie anlulna when in fair condition will weigh 1,100, and if it had broken loose from its owner accidentally, it is very proballe that a search would have been Instituted and inquiries made concerning it, but up to the present time nothing has been learn. ed of its owner. SBunimmig up all the rell cumlstatces it looks very probaible tllat a bloody tale is connected wtitl thisanimal, as It is a valuable one, anld the saddle is of fine workmanship. Lois Rleil Killed. It will be remembered that some months since, Louis IHel, of St. Peter's Mission, went to Prince Albert, at the re. quest of a deputation of his fellow coun. trymen--the lied Iliver hailf-Breeds--to assist them in adjusting some grievance with tile government. It was thought wlhen Itll went north lie would be killed, Sas a bitter feeling exisl agtainst ihin in that country, owing to tihe active part he took int the Iled Rtiver rehllion; conse. I quently his rei'ortet deathl will not le stir ' prising to those acquinlted with all thll circumsitances. In regard to tile affair, i 1 Winnipeg special dated tile 18th, says: t A telegraml from Calgary states that it is a reported there that Louis lell was shot t in Prince Albert during it riot there, ind it that the government wires halve been cut. r Wild rlumors are also rurrenct thatl Major f Crozier and Ils conmlmand tit Battleford it have beoe mnpssacred. The latter is ap. parently improbanmble. hbt the rint and Reil's death is looked u pons not unlike ly by Prince Albert people now in CaOs gary. Another dispatch says the rumors that oell has been shot in Prince Albert dur ing a riot there, and that the government wires have been cut, have been in circu. lation some days Information caeno here from a Roman Catholic missionary. Fra. Ravalli Monttment Fund. Subject to notice, the citizens of Bitter Root valley assembled at Stevensville, October 18, 1884, for the purpose of tak. Ing steps to raise funds to erect a monu. ment to the memory of the late departed Father Ravalil. It. A. Wella was elected chairman; Henry Buck, treasurer, and Gus. Moser, secretary. It was resolved to elect a flnancial com mittee of four, with power to appoint sub.committees In all the mining camps of Montana. John B. Catlin, E. B. Wiles, Geo. A. Salsig and Father d'Aste were eo. lected as such committee. It was decided to circulate subscription lists at once and receive all sums large, and small. I I. A. Wse.t:s,Chairman, Missoula, M. T.

Booth, No. 11, Thirty.third street, the contracting parties being Mr. D. B. Hlll, of Sun River, and Miss 8. C. Booth. Tihe ceremony, which took place at 7:80 o'clock, was performed by the 11ev. W. II. Tomlins of Albion, Ills., brotoer.in. law of the bride. Thq bride was attend. ed by her telces Miss Carrie and Mabel Gribbler, aged 19 and 7 yours respectively. Immediately after the ceremony the hap. py couple received the congratulations of the guests, after which the company marched to the strains of the wedding march to the dining-room, where an ele. gant repast was served by Kinsley, the well known caterer. The remainder of the evening was spent in dancing and so. clal converse. The bride's dress was of cream white Rhadamer silk cut en train and trimmed at the edge with a narrow box-plaiting, the entire front of the salrt and the neck and sleeves being trimmed with white crystal beads; she wore a long. white veil and carried a bouquet of white rose-buds. The groom wore the conventional full. dress black suit, with swallow.tall coat, white neck.tie and gloves. The presents were numerous and elo. gant, but were not displayed. The guests were the relatives and immediate friends of the bride and groom. Mr. and Mrs. Hall will remain in Chi. cago until the beginning of next week, when tfley will proceed to their home in Montana. We echo the sentiments of poor old Rip Van Winkle, "May they live long und prosper." Mas. I1.I1. 8. Notleo of Withdrawal. Editor of the Sux: Owing to my private business which will require my personal attention, I find it will not be convenient to fulfill the of. ece of road supervisor, the nomination to whlcu office was tnndered me by tie Dom ocratic caucus. Therefore I wish to say that I will not be a candidate, but will withdraw in favor of Joseph Kauffman, a deserving young man, who will be able to devote his whole time to this very imnpor. tant office. Thanking the gentlemen for the honor conferred on me by their now.a lnation, and also the many kind offers of support from the good people of Sun Rliver, I am, JouN W. NIxoN. CHURCH ILECOILD. w. J.

F.ontiuccE, October 24, 1884. Mr. E. Lippluncott is seriously ill and is under the care of Dr. A. C. Fleming. It is to be hoped that he will soon recover and be found at his accustomed lsbt. 'IbL1is is too fine weather to be sick. Quite an audience met together at Man. Ix's hall on Friday evening to listen to the issues of the day from ta Republican standpoint as presented by Col. Learning and Wa'l. i. I. lit, candidate for district attorney. Both gentlemen muade good speeches, especially Mr. lHunt. Ills logic was good, his words sharp and to the point, and he was frequently interrupted by cheers and expressions of approval. If we may predict fromn the indications lie gained many votes in this precinct. The meeting was hardly known and the attendance not so goodl as it ought to have been, but what It lacked in numbers it made utp in enthusiasm. It now takes rival butchers to supply the wants of this valley, and it is bewild. ering the way they fly around, change teaulms tald hunt customers. The nmall route from Fort Shaw to Flor.
