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 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the assay office, is to be superceded by a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."

THE WEST SHORE.
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. Published at
Portland, Oregon, at $2 per annum.

t HELENA HAPPENINGS.
The Report of the Grand Jury and
a What People Think of It.
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.
