VOL, 2, GREAT FALLS, MONTANA TERRITORY, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 1886, NO 19 TWO BRACES OF BAD BIRDS. Dupuyer Creek Authorities Capture Four Fine Feathered Fowls Badly Wanted. Some Points Relative to the Railroad -Other Local Matters of General Interest. FOUR AT ONCE. Ira Brown, B. F. O'Neal and l)avid An derson arrived from Dupuyer last evening with four prisoners captured there on -Wednesday. Two of the prisoners cap tured are ,W. H. Smith and John Burg who escaped from the White Sulphur Springs jail on the 17th of August last. They had worked their way to l)upnyer on their way across the line to to e North west Territories. The description given of the men in the circulars and Ilusband man led to the capture. When it was definitely known who they were, they were immnediately put under arrest. Smith gave up without a word, but Burg rather disliked tihe idea, but a revolver being produced lie surrendered. The other two prisoners were King and Pegg who were put under bonds by Jus tice Burd. It seems that they came from the north and each offered a horse for sale, but unfortunately it was the same horse, and their actions were regarded with sus picion. Finally Pegg rode the animal away, when King swore out a warrant for his arrest and Pegg was arrested about fifteen miles from Dupuyer. At the pre liminary examination each swore to the ownership of the horse, claiming to have purchased it from the same man. The whole affair was such a mysterious one that Justice Burd put them both under Londs to await the action of the grand jury, Pegg in the sum of $500 and King $300. King was formerly jailer at White Sulphur Springs and the identity of the prisoners, Smith and Burg, was fully es tablished through him.--Rier Press. Advertised List.

Ch-ssnman, of Ilelena, made us a brief but Ipeasant c(ail on Tue.slay. We learned from them that the graders had been called off between here and Ulidia, and would not linish the work until spring. The Judge said that he thought the road would be into, (reat Falls sooner than we now expect it. iHe said that the Maunitoba would reach Bufordl this fall and the rails couhll b. shipped by water to IBenton, ready for track laying, as soon a- navi'ation opened. He added that very likely tlh. N. P. H. 1. would weaken by that time so that rails would come by way of 1leiena and Benton both and track-la.ying would be prosecut ed with vigor from both ends at the same time.

A nice lot of Sand Coulee hay at reasosn able rates if taken before Nov. 1st. 2t G Zo. F. FIEID THE OBSERVER. This has been politician's week at Great Falls. Democrats and republicans have been here in full force, laying the under ground wires to pull during t!l coming. campaign. They were also looking after the political fences to keep the boys from breaking out of the corral. Once in a while an astute condidate could be seen reaching over into the enemy's pasture to seize a suffragist for his own. Sometimes he would catch a "doubting Thomas" on the fence and knock him over into the proper enclosure. It is a good thing for the town to have the candidates around. They circulate some money and make n everyone happy by their genial smiles and kindly conversation. The candidates are all fine gentlemen this year and they of course' appear at their best during this stage of the gamne. Nothing, coud ,e more genial than the vote-s~licitor s he i stands in the back ground of sn el cti'o i with hands outstretcheld f :ith'r i at- e ton-hoie.

It va a hre wr ih had become entan.-'d in th ri--el ne-h-'. of a wire fence. In hi< frantic endii:avors to extricate himself hei had horritvl 1ha cerated his legs and body. I can't -ce - wh these fences are so mucih jc-ed for ihorse pastures. The extpe-.i of a board ior rail fence may be primr:ily ire:ter, but. I should think that the lo-1s of equinu. and bovine treasures would make up the dif ference in a very few years.. A re:it many ranchmnen add to the do.tlcer of these wiery barbarities by failing to com a ply with the law, which requires three spans of wire and uprights every four feet. The owner of property enclosed by an il legal fence is liable for datmang-s resultiun from his non-compliance with the wi~e provisions of the law. The view from the south windows of the Park hotel is magnitcent upon a clear morning. As one's eyes open to the reali ties of a new day they involuntarily turn to the inlet of the sup's genial rays. Then t bursts upon them a beautiful vision; one of nature's best r sketches, the placid bay, hemmed with green trees, grdtdaal rise of c the land to the Belt- mountains, and over c all the beautifnl conopy of the sky. This is a peaceful scene which induces us all to s new hopes and more zealous endeavor. As e the sun reflects its golden light upon the t picture we realize that nature greets us j with a smile and bids us take up the duties o of the day with light hearts and a grateful f appreciation of the beauties as well as the a utility of earth.

(luark's livery rigs withl four high school principalis from Chici,;o and a railroad President from St. Louis. As I had once taught a country school and had always aspired to the presidency of some biir steel highway I of course felt perfectly at home in that party. I intended to palm myself off for a W dl street king and and ex-army officer, but in an evil moment I had for gotten to remove my press association badge. They saw it and so there was nothing left for me but to acknowledge my guilt and indigence. IHowever, they seemed to think better of me when I in formed them that I had not been in the business long, and hadn't become totally depraved as yet.

If anyone goes there expecting to see a clean clear mrountain of glass that he can see into or see himself in, he will of course be disappointed, but these clitis are prom inent among the wonders of the Park and are unequaled by any volcanic glass cliffs in the world, When the sun shines upon them the effect is dazzling.
