Sam Grant received from his father,
Donald Grant, Wednesday, atelegram in
structing him to have all ties for the
Great Falls & Northern R. R. cut to nar
row gauge length, as it has been decided
by the management to construct a narrow
gauge road to conform with the line al
ready in operation between Lethbridge
and Dunmore, instead of a standard guage
as was at first contemplated. Some ties
of the standard length had been cut in
the mountains, but MIr. Grant sent cour
iers to the several camps and by this time
the men are getting out the short ties.
Other camps in the timber wili be es
tablished at once. The timber required
will be procured at the head of Wolf
creek, the Teton and in the Smith river
canyon. Steps have been taken to put
many men at work at each of these
Mr. Grant informs us that work on the
new line will begin as soon as possible
and that it will be pushed through to
completion this season. He expects his
father and Engineer Barclay here ina
few days, when the surveys and other
preparatory work will go speedily on.
The change to narrow gauge is not a sur
prise to Mr. Grant, as the company here
tofore had such a line only in contempla
tion. The standard gauge proposition is
of recent origin and after canvassing the
pros and cons of the matter the manage
ment decided to make the road a narrow

"The Great Falls and Canada company
will make a mistake if they don't build
near Choteau," so says Geo. Richards,
stockman and proprietor of the Choteau
saw mill. "The route up Sun river to
Little Muddy, and thence to the bench
and across to Choteau would give a nat
ural water grade all the way and require
very light work. From Choteau the route
should be through Armstrong's gap,
which is a natural divide between the
head waters of Blackleaf and Dupuyer.
By this route the road would reach Pie
gnn with only one short cut. This is a
natural grade most of the way and ties
could be laid on the prairie. All this
country through which the road would
pass is good agricultural land and would
soon furnish a great deal of local tralfic."
"Which is the best route across the
"The Great Northern should go up the
south fork of the Muddy, which leads by
an easy water grade up to the Marias
pass, and it is no trouble to cross there.
The head waters of the Blackfoot are just
on the other side and the descent is easy.
This route offers easy approaches on both
sides and will open up one of the richest
coal and timber districts in America.
There are veins of coal of the finest qual
ity that are over 20 feet thick, while the
timber is as good as any to be found in

acres, including the part of the city al
ready built up, and would be sufflicient
for a population of 30,000 inhabitants.
This section is part of a natural drainage
area of about 2,500 acres, all of which
could be drained by one trunk sewer;
but this would require a sewer of about
4% feet in diameter, at an expenditure of
not less than $50,000. Therefore, I think
it advisable to divide up the area and
build twin sewers, one on Third street, as
already mentioned, and the other on Sixth
street. By so doing, the construction of
the last named can be postponed until
that portion of the city is built up, there
by reducing the first expenditure consid
When the main sewer on Third street
is built from the river to the south line of
the townsite, it will require about 10
miles of lateral sewers to drain this dis
trict, at a cost of about $7,000 per mile.
As the city is laid out uniformly, with
alleys through every block, I have found
it economical to locate the sewers in the
alleys, instead of the avenues, as by so
doing the length of the house drains will
be reduced and a less depth of the lateral
sewers is required. A profile of the sew
er on Third street and a map showing the
drainage area and laterals tributary to
this main, accompany this report. Re
G. N. MILLER,
Considerable discussion followed on
I the financial aspects of the question. Mr.
i Miller explained on a malp the route of
the proposed main sewer and also pre
sented a profile showing the gradual
slope of the sewer to the river. He also
spoke of the means by which the cost of
sewerage was defrayed in various cities.
On motion of Alderman Clinton, it was
decided to accept the plan submitted by
Mr. Miller and to advertise for bids
for building the sewer from the
river to the alley south of First avenue
Mr. Paris Gibson was present and spoke
approvingly of the subject in general.
City Attorney Leslie explained the law
relative to the construction of sewers and
the raising of funds therefor.

Dr. Crutcher, who received permission
to address the council, disapproved of
any such provisions. He said that such
stipulations were picayunish and tended
to d'scourage iovestments. It was in

No. 7 of $1 per share aggregating $125,
000, payable Feb. 20, making $1,000,000
declared to date.
This large amount of total dividends,
says the Butte Miner, must indeed be
gratifying to the stockholders of the Bos

how successful the mines of Butte can be
worked under proper management. To
Thos. Couch, superintendent and general
manager of all of the company's property
in Butte, is due the credit of this happy
state of affairs for the Boston & Montana.
Mr. Couch is a man having a clear in
sight to all branches of the mining busi
ness, and this, together with an executive
ability seldom equalled and never sur
passed, has placed the Boston & Montana
upon the firm footing it now stands.
Since the gentleman first took hold of
the Boston & Montana properties here
he has labored Incessantly for the success
of the company, and, as everyone knows,
his untiring energy has not been wasted.
From the very frst he has stoutly main
tained that the property belonging to the
company needed only development to
make it the most substantial in the state
of Montana, and now that this has been
done the truth of his assertions have been
verified in more ways than one. To sum
up the total to Mr. Couch's credit, the
Boston & Montana people are fortunate
in having a man of his wide experience
and ability in charge of its business, and
under his management the mines and
smelters belonging to the company will
turn out many more millions of dollars in

At Jewell Tells All About the S.bbing
County Attorney Martin appeared for
the state and Mr. Brady for the defense
at the trial of Paul Savage. A Jury was
empanelled promptly. A! Jewell testi
fied clearly that the defendant came up
to him on December 5, last, on Central
avenue, and asked him who he was look
ing for and who he wanted. Savage then
stabbed him with a knife under the arm
and also made a '-sweep" at his throat.
Jewell added, that after the attack he
knocked Savage down three times and
George Ryan testfled that Savage had
a knife in his hand before the affray.
Mr. Brady cross-examined both wit
nesses and elicited the fact that Savage
was "under the influence of liquor"
despite some objections from Mr.Mar
tin to the questions..
Savage testified in his own behalf that
he did not know that he stabbed Jewell.
Mrs. Savage was called, but the prosecu
tion admitted the facts relative to the
knife, about which she was to testify.
The defense then closed.

A South Afrlean Gold Mine.
The hitherto comparatively unexplored
district of Witwateerendt having been
prospected is now producing results as
sensational as were experienced in the
days of the Australian gold fever, and
those results will evidently be supplant
ed when enterprising speculators have
gone further afield. During the past
year no fewer than 1,500 stamps have
been laid down at Witwatesrendt, thus
bringing up the total numbs to two
thousand; and further extensive engin
eering works are being carried out to
meet the exigencies of a development in
mining that is truly phenomenal. A suf
flcent illustration of this development is
found in the yield of the Robinson mine,
which, when a 10stamp battery, hads
crushing in November of 4,000 ounces.
It can, therefore, give rise to no astonish
ment that a 20s. share in this mine has
now reached the extraordinary value of
£64. Such a figure is of course excep
tional, though the shares of other com
panies command a very high premium.
