The ITieins lIouse recently opened in this place, is doing a good business. Dan McKay and Frank liuv have just finished burnini, a kiln of excellent lime. On this page will be found a very in teresting letter fromn our HIelena corres pondent. The addition to Bilachley Bro.'s & Hick ory's building is being pushed forward rapidly. George D. Budington is at Fenton this week, introducing his Grenade tire extin guishers. Owing to the plasterers beingat work at the school ibonse, no school was held this week.

Inquire at this office. * We notice that Chris. Dickinson is making numerous iumlrovement:s about his meat market. Mr. and Mrs. E. R. ('llnucan- of Belt, have gone to the States and will be absent about two months. The firm of Lough & Qnelil has been dissolved. Jerry Qunceli will continue the business at the old stand. A good girl or woman by addressing this office can learn of a situation where she can command good wages--lmoney being no object. Ed. Canary is erecting a building on his property on First avenue south, which will be occupied by !Robert Moore, our tonsorial artist. Chas. Wegner returned to the Falls last Tuesday. lie will go to Sun River next week to take stock of his firm's lumber yard at that place. After several unsuccessful attempts, winter has evidently taken possession. The first installment of the "beautiful" put in appearance Tuesday. The ad. "setter" on the Town Talk is a daisy We suspect Chapman is the artist. It bears some resemblance to him, only a little handsomer, if such is possiblle. We received a pleasant call from Messrs Samuel Burd and Jacob Schmilt, two of Choteau's substantial citizens, who made their first visit to Groat Falls one day this week. The Rocky 1Mount:in IIusbandutan, in its Territorial News in the current issue, gives the TRIBUNE credit for an item that makes us feel decidedly foolish. We will not father it. A case was tried before Judge iluy last Saturday, in which a well pulley figured prominently. We (lid not learn any of the particulars, and therefore will not nmention any names. Robert Williams, while hunting on Box Elder creek one (lay last week, run on a full-grown wild cat, which, after some lit tle trouble, he killed. When discovered, the cat was feasting on a sheep, which he had evidently killed. Pat Sweeney, Ira Myers & Co.'s fore man, who has charge of the outfit cutting timber for their mill at this place, was down from the mountains last week. HIe says they are getting out fiue logs, and expect to make a drive about the first of March. In another column will be found a let ter from the sister of George Murdock, who died here several months ago. The lady desires the address of any of his in timate friends, who will confer a favor if they will communicate with her. Our readers will remember the attempt ed robbery of the Helena & Marysville coach some time ago by John Jackson, an account of which was published in these columns at the time. He was sentenced last week to ten years imprisonment for the crime. In our last issue we failed to mention the effect of the heavy wind which pre vailedl on the previous Thursday. It was a "terror," in fact a "holy terror," and -while it did no damage to amount to any thing here, yet we will be satisfied not to have a repetition of it again. The Knights of Pythias lodge recently organized at ('hiea, has a nmembership of ten. The' following :re the officers:' P. C., Jas. W. Arm-troup; C. C., Ernest Crutcher; V. C., W. Hi. Black; P., A. B. Hamilton; M. of E., P. Wilde; M. of F., I . N. Hazlett; K. of R. & S., E. C. aar rett; M. at A., O. G. Cooper. George Warner, proprietor of the Ilel ena and Great Falls express line, was in town this week, and informed us he is do - ing a rattling business, and early in the spring will make two trips every week. This is the line to patronize when you go to Helena--and please remember it. Christmas is drawing nigh, and why not observe the day by having a Christ mas tree? We are authorized to announce it thata meeting will be held at the school house next Saturday evening, at which it is hoped there will be a full attendance, when it will be decided whether it is ad visable to have a tree or not. There is a class of "Kritters" that are always trying to find some mistake made Sby others. They are generally objects of compasesion rather than censure and the t chances are ten to one that their lives have been oint great nmistake, and to even up the deoicienc-y they are eternally look ing out for a blunlder made by some one else. Robert Vaughn has just completed a fence, running from the ferry lauding on the Missouri river, to thle Montana Cattle comipany's ranch. The fence is two miles in length and enclosen about 1,000) acres of choice grazing land, on which lie will turn his herd of thoroughbred cattle nert spring. IHe has leased the land enclosed 'for a term of years, and will devote con siderable attention to the breeding of fine cattle. 1I. O. Cihowen, one of the proprietors of the, Cataract Roller Mill, mct with a painful accident one day this week. lie was assisting in unloading a load of hay, and the waFgon, which was standing on an incline, suddenly started backward, while lie was standing on the front of the rack, throwing him off. lie lauded on a plank drive-way in such a manner as to throw his whole weight on his left arm, and sus tained a fracture of one of the small bones of that member, just above the wrist joint. The emigration department of the Nor thern Pacific yesterday received a car load of potatoes grown in the Bitter Root valley, Montana. The shipment was made as an experiment, Col. Grost wishing to eatisfy himself and others that this vege table could be with safety shipped that distance at this season of the year. The shipment was made in a refrigerator car, and the potatoes when arrived were in ex cellent condition. The Montana potato is remarkable for its exceptional size and sweetness.-Pioneer Press. For some time, says thm Courier, parties have been on the Crow reserve making surveys preparatory to allotment of lands to the Indians in severalty. We learn thait the plan of the general government is to convey to each head of a family 320 acres-one-half agricultural and the re m'a-inder grazing h.lnd, and to each child or u:unrri'ed plerson of Indian blood SO a!:res of .r;'icultral cu. d an eq:2 t,(ual amount of grazing land.

The appoint ment is a good one, as all will admit.-- River Press. A IIelena special to the Pioneer Press says: There is a singular coincidence about the Democratic appointments in this Territory, inasmuch as they all rep resent the Missouri element or else their good luck is attributable to Missourians. Ex-Delegate Maginnis seems to have been entirely left out in the cold, as none of his political friends have received any favor,. The northern part of the Terri tory and the Missoula country, which were his strongholds, have been entirely Si-noredi in ,assing the pllums. It is ru ioured that Mr. Meyendorf, the melter of the assay office, is to be superceded by a Republican of this city, whose name has not been made public. We are in receipt of a neat book of nearly 200 pages entitled "The Industries of Minneapoli." It is profusely illus trated, and withal a very interesting work. It gives a clear and concise history of the early settlement of that:place, and the many adverse circumstances which seem ingly combined to deter its growth, but despite which, the natural advantages the situation offered finally triumphed, and to-day Minneapolis is not only the great est manufacturing center in the west, but is the greatest milling and lumber center in the world. What the future holds in store for her is difficult to conjecture, for in the past she has more than fulfilled the fondest expectations of her most ar dent admirers. Stockmen in northern Montana are all wearing a contented smile. The past fall has been exceptionally fine and range stock-particularly cattle, which suffer most from the weather-have a fine coat of fat over their ribs which will help them through the winter without serious loss, even should it prove to be a very hard one. The cattle are all healthy, no disease of any kind being reported. The horse disease, which proved fatal to a large number of horsts in the Chestnut country, has abated and no new cases are reported, and it is fair to presume the disease has been entirely eradicated. Old stockmen say that stock have not for a number of years been in as favorable condition to withstand the most rigorous kind of a winter as they are now. Last Monday a party of hunters discov ered near Bullshead station a band of seventeen wolves devouring the carcass of a yearling steer which, from appear ances, they had just killed. The animals were apparently very hungry, and allow ed the party to get at close quarters, be fore they made any attempt to escape, and six of their number were killed. The steer was in good condition, and it is a matter of some surprise that the wolves managed to kill it. This is a matter of grave importance to stockmen. If at this season of the year, when stock is strong and in good condition, they are not able to withstand the attacks of these animals, what will be the result during the winter, when they become weak, and the wolves become more ravenous and bold? This is something which our stockmen must act upon immediately if they want their books to show a balance on the right side at the next round-up. The following is said to be the latest story on X. Beidler: While in this section of the Territory with the agent delivering the Montana History, he stopped one day at a ranch for dinner. While he was at tending to his rabbits and buckboard out side he noticed a calf that wore a wire muzzle to prevent it from sucking. Evi dently, this was a new thing to X.-at least he let it appear so. lie started for the house and told the ranchman that he had better hurry out and attend to that calf, for it was going to die. The farmer bustled out immediately, followed by X., and, when the muzzled calf was pointed out to by the latter, said: "There is noth ing the matter with that calf, it's all right" "All right!" said X, "the durned critter's been eating wire fence. Don't you see it sticking out of its mouth ?" It is needless to say that the farmer saw the feuce and the point at the same time. Again, we wish to call the attention of our patrons who are engaged in ranching to the importance of securing a good quality of wheat for seed next year. There is no money in raising a poor, mis erable quality of wheat when a good quality can be raised without any more trouble or expense, other than the pur chase of the seed. There are a number of different varieties of hard wheat which can be raised here successfully. Among the varieties is that known as the Hard Scotch Fife, which yields well in this climate, makes an excellent quality of flour, and is in fact a variety which is suited in every respect to this latitude. Mort. L. Strong, of Sun River, raised 800 bushels of this variety, this year, which yielded 37 bushels per acre, machine measurement, and anyone desiring to pro cure a quantity of it for seed should write to him immediately, as he is finding a ready sale for it. n We learn that tle wiser heads in Ben t ton are of the opinion that considerable 0 trouble will be experienced by the C. P. e- officials in securing the right of way from d the international boundary line to Itenton, ; as the road will be obliged to rul for a t greater portion of the way through the , Indian reserve, and to run throligh which ,e the consent of Congress will have to be , obtained. It is argued that the Northern t- Pacific will use every available means in their power to defeat the measure, and as they have strong inf!uence at the capital, r will undoubtedly make it decidedly in teresting, if they do not succeed in de feating it outright. This is, of course, a matter of business, and while we trust 0 they will notsucceed in keeping the C. P. out. yet they cannot be blamed if they make the atteimpt, which there is noques e tion but that they will. This portion of i Montana, beyond question, is N. P. terri tory, and so long as they can keep out C competition, will control it. t We understand the enterprising peopile Choteau and vicinity have subscribed suf ficient money to build a bridge across the north fork of Sun river, and that the hbridge will lie built without delay. By bridging this stream the people of that section will be enabled at all times of the year to get in and out by this road to Helena and intermediate points, with a great saving of time and money. It speaks volumes for the commissioners of both Choteau and Lewis and Clarke counties. that they will sit idly by and see a public improvement of this kind built by pri vate enterprise, when they have been pe titioned times without number for assist ance in the matter. Choteau county, at the present time, is probably excusable, as they have no money in the treasury, but plenty of debts. But it is different with Lewis and Clarke. They have mon ey, but a decidedly unbusiness like board of commissioners to expend it. It would be more to the credit of Lev.-is and Clarke county had they expended the amount of money it took to build the foundation for their new court house, in repairing the miserable roads which thile county abounds in. A correspondent writing to the Helena Herald, sums up the various resources of Montana in a very creditabhle manner,witlh one or two exceptions. In speaking of the manufacturing indusry, he says: "Well, what are we going to manufacture ? We have no hardwood. True, but we have the red or Oregon fir, which is as good if not better than the average hard wood that comes here in the plows, im plement handles, etc. We can and ought to produce all our pork, bacon, hams and lard. All our own blankets and woolen goods. We have the best of wool. All our own printing, writing and wrapping paper. The best of material in old tents, wagon covers, cotton shirts, overalls, etc., is rotting about our farm houses. Our own powder. Freight is much cheaper on saltpetre and sulphur than on powder, and we have an abundance of alder and willow for coal. All our own common furniture and bedsteads. We have aspen and cottonwood in abundance. All our own tubs and pails. All our brooms. We can raise a small and finer broom corn I that will make better brooms than those I we get from the States. All our own matches. Hundreds of others will follow these, and we can grow food for them all. 1 We have plenty of coal and the best pf water power to drive them." º We understand a rancher living not more than one hundred miles from Nei hart, got himself into serious trouble re cently, at Stanford. A short time ago he (we will not mention his name) took a load of onions to the Judith country, and after disposing of them, had an oppor t tunity to work with a party of threshers for a few days, which he accepted. On his return home he stopped over night at a Stanford, intending to leave in the morn ing. But before he departed a number of small articles were missed, and suspicion rested upon him, and under various pre tenses he was pevailed upon to remain for another night. Sometime during the dcay a search warrant was procured and the missing articles were found in his wagon, together with numerous others, afterwards identified by the thlreshers whom he worked with. At last all the stolen property was recovered except a meerschaum pipe, which he declared he knew nothing of, but a rope was procur ed, and he was given to understand that he was expected to produce the pipe, or climb the rope with his hands and legs tied together. lie did not study long on the proposition, but produced the pipe, which he had concealed in a sack of oats. After this he was told to go and sin no more. It proved to be rather an expen sive experience to him, and it is more than likely that he will not care to repeat it, as all he had when he got home was his horses. During the month of October the price paid for wheat at Bismarck, )akota, av eraged 72 cents per bushel; at Jamestown 68 cents, and Valley City 70 cts.--North western Miller. The few who have claimed that the mill in this place has not been paying a fair price for wheat, will readily see from the above that the prices paid averages about 25 per cent above the price paid for A No. 1 hard, in Dakota, where there is not only a much larger local trade, but they have the advantage of a direct route to the seaboard, and the great flour cen ters of the east. Besides this, there is strong competition, and every cent is paid for wheat that the market will stand. It should also be taken into consideration that the wheat raised here this year will not admit of comparison with the Dakota cereal. There is a considerable portion of the wheat which cannot be utilized here to advantage. The country is not sufficiently developed to furnish a ready market for bran and middlings, which in itself is an item of importance. Those who have talked of "not a fair deal"' be ing the farmers by the proprietors of the mill, evidently failed to give the subject much thought or consideration, but hasti ly jumped at the conclusion that they were being robbed! If they had canvas sed the subject they would readily have seen that it is to the interest of the pro prietors of this mill to pay the highest possible price for wheat as a means of propagating the industry. It would be the height of folly for them to beat down the price of wheat, even if they felt so disposed, as their success depends wholly upon its future production, and if they were inclined to deal unfairly with the. producers in the very beginuing it is safe to predict they would meet with their reward for so doing. The proprie tors are business imen, and are not intent upon killing t-the goose that lays the gold en egg." a --- ---------- WHIO) ARE THEY? CENTRAL, N.w ANNAN.

With a magnificent number of 1 more than twice the usual amount of letterpress and engravings, the West Shore closes the volume for 1885, the eleventh of its series. The December number is chiefly devoted to illustrat ing and describing the great Canadian Pacific Railway and the country through which it passes, especially the Pacific Coast Province of British Columbia. The volume for 1886 will t begin with a magnificent number on the city of Portland, filled with new and artistic engravings, and accom by a large supplement in colors. The West Shore has no counterpart in the United States, and in its own peculiar field has never had a rival worthy of the name, the few cheap imitators which have occasionally sprung up coming early to grief. It deserves the success it has achieved by adhering to a high standard of merit, and as it is progressive in its policy, improving from month to month,it is certain to meet with the greater success Which we heartily wish it for the fuihre.

The Wise Ones Quietly Dis posing of Their Tun nel Stock. hIELENA, MONT., Dec. 6, 18~5. 1 Editor of the TRIBUNE: The principal topic of discussion for the past week has been the report of the grand jury on the construction of the court house. Though the grand jury was drawn by the ounty commissipnmrs and contained many persofial friends of theirs as well as relatives, yet the report was a scathing one and leaves only one of two things to be done by the commissioners: either to demand an investigation or to resign. What the merits of the case are I know not, but it is certain that these parties must clear their skirts or never ex pect the confidence of their fellows. A new Judge has been appointed for the Bozeman district, and as usual, a car pet-bagger. This one is a Hoosier. What ability he has for tilling this office remains to be seen. The Land Oflce is working well under Messrs. Langhorne and Howell, who after making the usual number of mistakes incident to a new field, will eventually malke first-class officials. By the way, it is to be hoped that steps will be taken to prevent the confirmation of Sparks, the General Land Office Com missioner, who is evidently a first-class crank-hesitates not to class the inhabi tants of the Territories among thieves, and who overrides the laws of Congress with the utmost equanimity, hoping to gain che-ap notoriety. One of his latest freaks is to decide that a party who has pre-empted land cannot commute a home stead claim, which is just precisely con trary to the decisions of the best lawyers who have been in the Land Office, from the late Vice President Hendricks down to recent ones. The effect is to discour age settlement and to retard the prosper ity of the Northwest. Fortunately, the Secretary of the Interior and the United States courts can be resorted to, and will undoubtedly take down Sparks another peg, as was done in the timber matter through the efforts of Delegate Toole and others, who were acquainted with the in terests of the Territories. 'The Independent has opened broad sides on the late Assayer Hlarrir:on, and intimates that his vindication, so-c::l1ed, was paid for in money. Quite a little stir was oecasioned by tlh assault of the Probate Court clerk, famil iarly called "Bijah," upon the Pioneer Press reporter, who had charged Steven son with unlawfully dealing in county warrants. It is said that the clerk was the party referred to in the grand jury's report as being guilty of this crime. The long talked of debut of Miss Helena P. Clark on the stage was a successful one in all respects. Miss Clark has long been a favorite in Ifel ena society, not alone on account of her father, an old-time resident of Montana and a warm personal friend of Gen. Sherman, who wept over his classmate's grave when last in Mon tana, but her own good qualities have won her many friends. The part se lected by Miss Clarke was that of Meg Murilles in the play of Guy Mannering, founded upon Scott's novel. The character is extremely dificlnit. Miss Clarke, however, show ed herself equal to it, and in her ren detion showed positive genius and a hility,. which surprised the anticipa tion of her friends. She gave evi dence of finely cultivated e!locutiona ry powers, and I predict will make a mark upon the stage. Her support was not what could have been desir ed, though all that could be expected. The Union Pacific railroad has be gun the construction of a line from Dillon to Helena. This will be a standard guage, and the Independent intimates it will be extended to form part of a North and South line from Mexico to Hunson Bay. Engineer Barclay of the C. P., was in Helena Friday on his way to exam ine the mines of Butte. IHe announc ed himself as greatly impressed with the agricultural resources of North ern Montana--the future wheat rais ing section of the Northwest-and al so with the Neihart mines, and the growth of the cattle and sheep inter ests of.Choteau county. The mining excitement is still rag ing, although some of the shrewd ones are quietly selling out Tunnel stock. The Red Mountain mines, however, are stated to be good prop erties, and there will be a vast amount of work done in that locality in the next six months. A number of the boys who bought seats in the Mining Exchange on the supposition that $20 made them life members, are now howling because they find it was only for a year and that the fifteen incorporators are reap ing the profits. "Of such is life in the far West." D. O'Krat. A great relisious revival is shaking up the people of the Schoharie valley, New York, under the preaching of Evangest Earie of Boston.
