Before leaving he gave it iut to his friends that the object of the rip was to visit his friends; but the sequel shows that, while this may have f ten a part of his business, he had anoth- 1 r and tar more important matter to at v end to.

Again The Tribune calls Attention to this Beneiteent Institution. An institution which reflects honor on its promoters, and is a lasting monument to their generosity, is the new public library building recently completed. When it is opened to the public, in about I two weeks, Great Falls can boast that no other city of the same size west of the r Mississippi has a building used exclu Ssively for that purpose. r It is true there are public ltiraries in a number of western cities, but so far as we can learn, they are in rented quarters. Therefore Great Falls lays claim to the honor of being the only city in Montana that can glory in a building dedicated to the reading public. To Mrs. Paris Gib son belongs the honot of giving the lI brary idea a good start, for that lady in duced the Townsite company to donate the lot at the corner of Second avenue north and Third street, on which the library building now stands. It is known as the Valeria library, so named in her honor. The baulding. which was designed by Hunt & IHolecher, architects in this city, is of pressed brick with grey cut stone trimmings from the Ulm quarry. It is one story in height, and divides off into a readin 'room, private study-room and librarian a room. The main reading-room is 35x17 and well lighted. The stock of books will consist of a well-assorted list of fiction, history and standard reference works. some valuable works wihl be added to the collection in a few months. This Is intended to Is,, as its name ndi- I I etes, a public I hrary, mid a- sum J will.- I 'lien to all. To take books from the it brary will coat 50 cents per month. Eal one paying that figure will be limited to one book per week. The reading-room will contain the latest newspapers and standard magazines and periodicals. The building will be formally opened oath at art loan exhibition for the benefit of the library fund. The officers of the library ire II. i. Chowen, president; Theo. Gibson, treasurer; Hobert Williams, secretary and librarian. Mrs. Dr. Ladd, J. S. Tod, E. G. Maclay and F. B. Wilcox are directors. RESOLUTIONM OF REGRET.

Finding Dave Barker, we ascertaIned that the report was true, and on questioelag him in re. gard to his opinlon of the matter he re marked: "It is only a blultea ae pert of Collins. We shall go ahead the same as if nothing happeea." It seems tat prior to the otganlastlon of the new compsey Couine had been for yearn putting up his proportioeate assar of the repreeenling work on this group and considering himself a one-twel owner, but when the property was cor. veyed to the new company by his part ners, Mr. Collins was left out, as his rights in the group were not duly re corded. Just what will be the result of this Jumping move ment we are unable to tell.-Nelhart Herald. The "Heuton Group" (the name by which the lead claims located on Snow creek, a tributary of Carpenter creek, which runs into Beltcreek just below the town of Nelhart, are designatedjare ac knowledged to be the rbchest undeveloped mines in Montana. They make a wond4r tul surfce Alhowing and stock in the company which controls them is con sidered very valuable. The mines are said to be worth millions of dollars. The leads, the Big Snowy, Blue Cloud, Flora, Carre and Green d; Weetherwax, (now known as the Puck), were discov. ered by Mr. Daniel Uutru of this city in June 1882, now nearly nine years ago. Mt. Dutro, who is an experienced and lucay prospector, proposed in the early spring of 1889 that if a party of Fort Bes ton men would join him in the expenses he would go to the Nelhart district on a prospecting tour Messrs. John H. Green, J. D. Wea'herwax, E. I. Chlion, Frank Uoomba, Jerry Collins and Jae. E. Stev ens-the latter two gentlemen repre senting one interest-joined with him, agreeing to put up money, Mr. Dutro to do the prospecting, the Interests to be di vided into slx equal parts, Mr. Dutro to have one-sixth. Mr. Dutro was gone about three months. Representative work has been done ever since. Messrs. Green and Clingan sold out to the late Dr. W. E. Turner, whose widow. Mrs. Annie E. Turner, now owns a large Inter est in the new company, after sellIng her holding for part cish and part stock. Mr. Stevens sold his laterest-one.twelfth -two his partner, Jerry Collins. Mr. Dutro, we believe, sold his interest short ly after the discovery to J. C. E. Barker, who also bought Frank Coomb's interest for cash and stock, as he did Mrs. Tur ner's. Mr. Westherwax also sold his in terest previous to his death. It appears, as stated by the Herald, that Mr. Collins' interest was "lost in the shuf fle" when the new company was rgan ized. After buyinor J. E. Stevens' half interest Mr. Col lin was owner of a full one-slrth interest, which was not recog nized by the new company owing to some oversight in recording the transfer. It appears that it has been discovered that there was some oversight or irregu larity in ohe matter of the original loca tion. Wo believe it Is blaimed the min ing laws were not observed in staking, describing and recording. However that na to.* whole group of mines have r.oiped and reloented, by whoa, we . been ablc to leat i 1 Whether Mr. (Utll,,'n' name nppiura or he is inter I dc o ntkouw. There is one thing certain, however, ,.sere will have to be a compromise, else the legal contest over these wonderful mines will be a long, bitterand expensive one, which will probably tie them up and prevent development and the profitable working of them. This should le avoid en tf possible.-River Press. The foregoing history of-the "Benton Group" is in the main correct. Jerry Collins and J. E. Stevens jointly owned a one sixth interest and the former had a document setting forth that fact duly recorded in the recorder's office of Aleagh er county several years ago. After 1883 Mr. Stevens failed to pay his proportion of the representation work and after two or three Mr. Collins took the usual course of "advertising him out," thus becom ing the owner of a one-slath interest. This interest for some unknown reason Mr. J. C. E. Barker, who is the promoter of the company with a long winded name, saw fit to appropriate to himself, and if the properties are now relocated he is simply getting a dose of his own kind of medicine. It is only necessary to add further that Jetiry tCollins Is not one of the relocators of the claims in question A High Compilment. It is now known beyond a doubt that the mercantile business of I. G. Baker & Co. ii the north west has been transferred to the Hudson Bay company. Two or three months will probably elapse before the detnitc of the transfer are cempleted and +i:" sored firm of 1. 0. Baker A (n. .iered with things past. The G will echo the sentiments of every n 1. this country when it expresses the 1--t regret that I. G. Baker & Co. ! ve decided to give up business. The higheat tribute that we can pay to this firm Is necessarily poor and small when we consider what the country and the set tlers of the country owe to them. Their whole business course in the northwest has been marked by almost prodigal gen erot ity and kindness to those who have done business with them. To the strug gling ranchman just starting in business they have never refused to extend a help ing hand; many a busines man in the country has been enabled to tide over his itftlcitilt~les through tiinaly assistance Irons I. U. Baker at Co. To enumerate the thousands of instances in which they have ungrudgingly helped the struggling settler and business man would be unnec essary. Their record in this country is too well known to require that, and woods fall us in attempting to voice the general feeling of gratitude to I. G. Baker £ Co. which exiets in this country.-Macleod Gfazette. The World Enaried.
