Bronco and Frank Baker of La DT Moure, Dakota, were among the arrivals in on Thursday's eoach. Ti ar Last Thursday was one of the few miser- TI .able days which falls to the lot of Mon- th tana in early springtime. m S. A. Beachley has broke ground for a p, -business building on Central avenue below m Ben. Lapeyre's drug store. sty We understand a very, in fact extra- a ordinary, large fish was seen in the river m one day this week by W. H. Cairns. See!

Wetzel has placed a 400-candle .power lamp in his l!quor store. It doesn't 4 ecost anything to look at it, but a mere 1 ýnention of its beauty or power, is distress: I ingly extravagant. W. O.

C. pile-driving crew are at work at the mouth of the Dearborn, where a large bridge will be put in, so as to lessen the danger of it being washed out during the annual freshet. Anyone forced to wade the bed of putty lying loose about town, during the past few days, can have a slight realization of the comforts which sidewalks afford. One of the tourists stepping at the Park remarked that he believed he would not purchase any property, as he could carry off,at the least calculation, $100 worth of Great Falls real estate on his boots: We are pleased to note, however, that the gentleman subsequently changed his mind and-purchased quite extensively. Too Enterprising, Nine months ago, says the Chicago Mail, Jonathan F. Gustafson, a Montana cowboy, was placed on the Chicago police f force, and was given one of the toughest streets to patrol. He walked into the gatherings of the worst thugs in the city, and when they did not obey his orders to " move on," he plied his club and used his - revolver in a way that soon caused him to be feared. During the nine months of n his career he shot seven or more men, got fourteen cases through the criminal court, >f and it was a very dull morning when he Is failed to bring a couple of battered wrecks out of Justice Kersten's bull-pen as the - result of his prowess. On the 9th he was dismissed, Chief Ebersold explaining, " I would like 500 men like him to fight Indians, but as a policeman he was alto gether too enterprising." Alaska Mines. Ithe Mining and Scientfite Press: B. W. in L Cowels, a mining man of Alaska, arrived auc here on the last steamer. He has the fol- wil lowing to say of the mines of the territory: un< "Senator Jones' Treadwell mine on Doug- cot las islahd is working about 160 men. It is ors understood that they have lots of good ore. Some miners on the island, I don't know who they were, three weeks ago sold to a London company a property for $1,000,000. A 200-stamp mill is to be put up there. A 190-stamp mill is in course of erection on the island on the Nowels property, e owned by a Boston company. It is safe to S say that within twelve months there will be more than 600 stamps at work on a Douglas island. I suppose there is noth s ing like the ledges there in all geology. They are from 400 to 500 feet wide, and are low grade, mining $6 to $14 per ton. There is a good deal of excitement up on the Yukon now, and at Berners bay, forty miles above Sitka, rich placer and qunrtz a properties are reported found. A good ; many prospectors have gone in. The steamer Ancon, that left Port To.wnsend last Wednesday, carried up about 20)1 r miners, principlily from Mlontana and Washington territory." w Pushing Work. 11 When the contract for the lionta in e Central line to Butte was let, it was an nounced by the officials of the company ts that the commencement of work at the st earliest possible moment w\:. imperativ:e. a Larson, Keefe" & Co., the contractors, lo.st no time in obeying this behest. The next day after securing 'the contract they had - teams and men on the way to the scene, '- and two days later ground was broken e. upon the site of the big tunnel at Wickes. A force of 150 men, with teams and scrap ts ers, was placed at the south end, and half fi ly as many on this side, near Wickes. Work id was commenced on both ends at once, and by this time considerable advance has lien E 00 made on the approaches. at The contractors are laying the whole ,is country under tribute for lumber. The J in demand occasioned by the bridge building and tie cutting for the Northern Pacific branch has taxed the mill facilities and ;e- woodmen to a great extent, and it is no lm easy task for the Montana Central to pro es cure the necessary timber on demand. he Still the contractors are ristling on this score, as well as in every other direction, le and are now laying down large quantities F n't of lumber a* both ends of thetunnel. 'jis sre material is rapidly transformed into build ss- ing stuff, and sheds for various uses are going up with great rapidity. The steam engines and boilers, air corn '7- pressors, drills, etc., for the. boring plant art have already been' shipped, and in the ich course of three or fourweeks will be in nn position at the tunnel. The Ingersoll air drill, the same used by the Mauir Brothers c t the Mullan tunnel, wll be the imple. for ments employed att the Wickes tunnel. 'ith these once in place and battering at Sur thecrocky walls of the great mountain, the progress of the trune1 will be tealy. S rapid.
