Reports of Large Deposits at Elliston
Reently Opened.
HELENA, March 14.-Some carbonate
silver ores are displayed here. They
come from the Carbonate King mines
near Elliston, which is in Deer Lodge
coutty. Attention was first directed to
the place about two years ago by the float
prospects, which had come from under
neath the soil,where the ore lay in stratas
between successive stratas of formation
of Weber gritz and gray dyke porphyry.
A shaft was commenced and before many
feet had been sunk a body of carbonates
four feet thick were struck, the lowest
assay of which ran $100. Running
through this, the miners next penetrated
successive layers of formation and then
.Ame upon Is body of I.ineral seven feet
thick, of a more compact character and
higher grade than that previously found.
The work still goes on and they are now
sinking down on the bottom contact,which
will be upwards of twenty feet in thick
ness, and is expected to carry ores run
ning into the thousand ounces; such be
ing the character of the ores on the final
contact ii the Leadville ones. The dis
covery, hitherto held in the closest se
crecy, J s now made knownr. The region
has been carefully gone over, and the
whole of it covered with locations, the
entire numbering 22, or 440 acres of land
underlaid with this body of ore, formed
by the seething mineralized lake which
ost its existence in the early stages of
she earth's formation.
Joseph C. Cramer, formerly of Lead
ille and afterwards superintendent of
the Jay Gould mine, has taken a leading
part In making these explorations.

Hon: Jesse Taylor-tells a good story of
X. Beldler. He says that the veteran
vigilante is indignant at the "manner in
wJich the legislature has treated him
and says publicly: "The cattlemen's legis
lature gave me a vote of thanks; the
ground squirrel legislature offered me
nothing, but this sheep-herders' legisla
ture wants to send me to the peniten
tiary." This refers to the legislature's
proposal to recommend him for a situa
tion in the penitentiary.
Judge Dyes has rece'ved a certilfied
copy of the bounty law. The bounties
are as follows: Each mountain lion, bear,
wolf or coyote, $2; each wild cat, lynx or
bob cat, 50 cents. The bounty does not
apply to skins of animals killed prior to
Feb. 20, 1889. The law is long, but for
prtiglcpl purposes it may be summed ug
tihlsi."First catch your mountain lion or
other bounty paying animal and call with
the skin on Judge Dyas. He will ex
plain the entire routine.'
The Great Falls Tlmnutx has issued a
handsome and very expensive annual
number, in magazine form, filled with il
lustrations and descriptive letter press of
the Falls and vicinity. There is at least
something practical and business-like in
this method of building up a town. It is
money invested with every prospect of a
reasonable return, and in a way that is
characteristic of western push and energy.

It Will Give Great Falls a Bee Line to
West Superior and the Eact-Im
portant Changes Must Result
CHICAGo, March 12.--What is consider
ed perfectly reliable information has been
received to the effect that Presidents Hill
and Minot of the Manitoba and the East
ern Minnesota railways, left St. Paul on
Tuesday last for Boston almost immedi
ately after the passage of the Duluth &
Winnipeg extension act by the Minnesota
house of representatives, for the purpose
of completing a loan of $5,000,000 for the
construction of a line across northern
Minnesota from Orookston to West Su
perior. If they accomplish the purpose
of their errand they will act at once, com
mence the work of construction from
both ends of the proposed line, surveys
for which are already in the hands of the
Manitoba railway at St. Paul.
Railroad men here speak of it as the
most important railroad move for West
Superior and Duluth that has ever been
projected. They say that it will put the
wheat of Red river valley and of Mon
tana and Northern Dakota into the Lake
Superior elevator, free of dangerous com.
petition from Minneapolis millers, who
will have to pay a premium for the trans
portation or lose the grain, which will
probably amount hereafter to a total of
upwards of 40,000,000 bushels for export.
The lack of local traffic on the new pro
posed line, they say, will compel the
Manitoba to give a lower through rate to
West Superior than it can afford to give
to Minneapolis over its other lines where
local traffic Is heavy."
[The step above announced is of the
highest importance to Great Falls and all
northern Montana. It will provide this
city with a short direct route to West Su
perior, the head of navigation on the
lakes, on which Mr. Hill has placed a
fleet of steamers. It means lower rates
and ouicker time both ways, between
Great Falls and New England, New York
and the eastern states in general. The
new road will build up at West Superior
it big city that must overshadow St. Paul
and Minneapolis as the trade center for
the northwest. It will alsoestablish flour
milling on the St. Louis river near West
Superior, causing dangerous rivalry with
Minneapolis, which will be at a disadvan
tage in freights, fuel and shipping faclli
ties. This masterly stroke will enable
Mr. Hill to hold his own and down all
opposition in Duluth and elsewhere. ED.]
Another Negro Exodus.
RALEIGHt, N. C., March 15.-Southern
agents, moving negro families to Arkan
sas, are quietly but successfully at work.
Their operations are thus far confined to
a few counties along the railroad lines.
From Goldsboro several thousand persons
have already gone. Many large planta
tions are almost entirely deserted. Negro
drummers are paid five dollars for each
family secured. The entire expense of
transportation to Little Rock is paid by
the agents. The negroes say they are
promised 40 acres of land, a brick house,
a cow and a dollar and a half a day for
labor. They know nothing of their des
tinations. The removal is by families.
The planters in the country affected are
greatly embarrassed at this loss of farm
hands at the beginning of the planting

A Goat Disturbs A HnFase- It...bmen All
[Correspondence of the TaraUsa.]
An accident took place near here the
other day. Mrs. E. R. Clingan and fam
ily and Miss Addle Steele while out for
a drive, passed near a farm house. A
goat ran out and frightened the horse.
A long rope that was attached to the goat
got under the horse and tangled arouud
his legs. The horse became frightened
and tried to run away, but was-over pow
ered by the driver, Miss Steele who gave
the lines to her companion, and getting out
cut the rope fronm the horses feet with a
penknife. The party returned home
much frightened, but no one was hurt.
The goat is an old timer from Great Falls
that has been here some time.
