Hill and party visited Sand Coulee and have been active ly engaged with business affairs. Mr. Hodgson says that the north Min nesota and north Dakota wheat crops are looking very fine. The acreage in Min nesota is much larger than last year's. The same is true of Dakota. Mr. Hodg son was a member of General Sully's ex pedition, which crossed the plains in 1864 and came to the relief of the Fisk expedi tion when they were in the Bad Lands. General Sully had learned that the Fisk party were in danger and sent Colonel Dill with his troops to their aid.

He is much pleased with this country and pre dicts that this will be a great city, as it can have no rival in the vastregionwhich is tributary to it. Mr. Hill is a lawyer 1 and a graduate of Harvard, but he is a western man to the backbone and must become very prominent in public affairs in his own state, where the young men are now taking the lead in politics, much to the amazement of veterans, who ex pected no such revolution.

This shows a stropg reaction from the copper syndicate scare and indi cates the almost complete restoration of confidence in the future of the copper market.

CuICAno, June 12.-In the Cronin in quest yesterday morning John Garrity, a saloonkeeper, testified that Detective Coughlin tried to hire a tough character, known as Major Sampson, to slug Dr. Cronin. He wanted him slugged with a base ball bat and dofigured for life. If it killed him it would not make much dif ference. J. D. Haggerty, a railroad clerk, testi tied that Alex Sullivan told him that Cro nin was scoundrel and a menace to the Irish cause. It was the impression of the witness that Sullivan said Cronin should be exterminated. The witness was of the same opinion at that time. Le Caron, who was a friend of Alex Sullivan, was a member of the committee which tried Cronin. He was introduced to witness by Bullivan, at the trial, as a man worthy of confidence in the Irish cause. The Herald today advances the theory that John Walsh, sometimes known as John Hanley, the famous invincible, had a hand in the murder of Dr. Cronin and that the assassination was ordered from across the water. Walsh was in Chicago several weeks prior to the murder of Dr Cronin. He said nothing about his busi ness. Walsh, accompanied by Philip McCarthy of Chicago, aided in the escape of the Fenians from Australia in 1867. Walsh was selected for this dangerous task because of his great strength and I iron nerves. Walsh was a trusted agent a of the Invincibles and was assigned by h them to perform dangerous work. When a the Clan-na-Gael passed into the hands of tie famous trlangle Walsh was pressed into service, acting, it is said, under di rection. Alex. Sullivan and four others have been arrested for the Cronin murder. Sullivan was formerly president of the Irish National league. THE NEW FREIGHT DEPOT. The Plans Bseived-It will be Built at Once.

THE CANADIAN LA\W LKELY TO UO A Fight in Livingston-Register Agents Appointed in Yellowstone-The Conrt House Dls.ute Unsettled. OTTAWA, Ont., June 12.-It is learned that the Weldon extradition bill is likely to be ratified by the imperial government. The law officers of the department of jus tice regard the law as retroactive. It is doubtful, however, whether the executive would permit the extradition of the bood lers, as parliament distinctly voted down an amendment declaring the measure re troactive. Selline of Big Farms. In 1879, when the great farms of the Red river valley were advertised by writ ers as evidence of the tendency to mon opolize land in the United States and create estates like those in England, the answer was made even then that J. L. Grandin, the largest holder, was laying out his sections so that hie could advan tageously dispose of them in a few years. It so turns out, says the Pioneer Press, and he is now selling off his rich lands at $25 to $30 per acre. Graadin has put upon his home section, where he lives, $65,000 worth of improvements. He has a model farm. SHEEP AND WOOL. Headquarters for the Wool Trade of the aorth., Fifty car loads of sheep from Oregon have arrived in the Manitoba yard here.

Much Pleased With the Scenery of the Missourl-Dr. Brown Expresses a High Opinion of the Sand Coulee Coal-They Leave for Home. Tuesday the editorial party set out for Sand Coulee to examine the coalfields and observe the progress of that rising town. The train sped quickly almost to the mouth of the mine. On the way the visitors observed with interest the fine scenery of the upper Missouri, the luxur ant vegetation along its banks, the penin sulas and islands, which mark its course., as well as the crystal waters of the great river itself, which glistened in the sun, resembling molten silver. The party were also much interested in the suburban ranches of Moajor Fields, Mr. Junkins and others. They did not call on Brigade Major at Mr. Fields, not supposing perhaps that so noted a repre sentative of the Olydsdale stock was on hand. Mr. McGinnis and Prof. Fred W. Anderson enabled the party to under stand the topography of the places through which they passed. The visitors were met at the mine by Mr. Anderson, who enabled them to see promptly the immense avenues and streets which form the underground city. The party made the circuit of the vast caverns and came out greatly pleased with the trip. They considered that the place was cool enough to make a pleasant summer resort. They gave close atten tion to the serious side of the visit ani plied Messrs. Anderson, Johnson and Dwyer with questions relative to the coal, the workings, the screens and the Legg coal machines, one of which happened to be outside where its mechanism could be freely inspected. The veteran geologist, Dr. Brown, of the Indiana state board of geology, who has given years to the practical study and and examination of coal deposits and mines, said: "This is excellent coal. There is no better bituminous coal than this." He added : "There is more coal in Montana than in Pennsylvania." "That is good coking coal," he also said as he ex amined a lump which he took up at ran dom. His long acquaintance with coal and coal mines enabled Dr. Brown to master readily the entire plan of cam paign pursued by Mr. Anderson in attack ing this fortress of old king Coal. As the result of his observations here and at Chinook, Dr. Brown is more than ever convinced of the vast extent of the great central American coal field. The party returned about noon well pleased with the trip and devoted the re mainder of the day to seeing the town or to speaking with Mr. Hill and others. In the afternoon the party left for the east with the regular train. Dr. Brown of the editorial party was taken ill yesterday while visiting the Rainbow falls. He went down the long series of steps "to make the acquaintance of the waters," as he put it, and when re turning fainted away with exhaustion. We are glad to report that he is much better today, and was able to take part in the Sand Coulee excursion. Orange Judd intends to write a series of articles descriptive of this trip from Minneapolis to Butte. Messrs. Conner, Baker, Johnston, Owens, Doerr, Wood, Brown and Col man all have abundant mental and writ ten notes of the journey, which they will make good use of. THE NATIONAL GUARD.
