.e astys the Stories of Unuunal Sitiknee
on the Line of the Great Northern
Extension Are Untrue.
Dr. J. IH. Fairfield, contract surgeot
on the Pacific extension, who returned to
the city yesterday, after an absence o
several months, informs us that the ru
mor started about the prevalence of sick
ness along the line of the new road art
totally false. He says that since tilt
company began construction last Sep
tenther only twelve deaths have been re
corded, which is a remarkably goes
showing, considering the great number
of men constantly employed. No deathi
can be attributed to the lack of propei
medical aid, as one and sometimes twi
physicians have been in the field read3
to attend to any who were unwell. Tltt
doctor further states that a majority of
the deaths were from pneumonia or pre
wailing grip a tdisetse which. during the
past two months. has puzzled the hest
doctors of America. In short. the stories
set afloat concerning the amont of suffer.
ing on the extension are wholly no
founded and deserving of no credence.

of Thursday. These Stations are the

the timbers are in, thirteen feet in the

strongest timbers used about mining

The north station at the 5(K)-foot level
is connected with a straight cross-cut
from the vein 320 feet distant. The vein
at this depth is sixty feet in width, and
is as rich as the ore taken from other
parts of the immense property. After the
timbers for the station are put in place a

cross-cut will be driven south to inter

While real estate can not he said to be
nooming, yet the following resume of
sales by the Townsite company shows
that there is nothing to complain of.
Considering that the sales were made in
ten days, and during a period of dullness,
the showing may be considered to be re
markably good. With the resumption of
work on the big dam and the Boston and
Montana smelter and the energy dis
played by builders taking advantage of
the favorable weather, we may confi
dently look for a greater record of sales

During the forenoon the distinguished

have been here before were naturally as
tonished at the great improvements that
have been made recently, and so ex
pressed themselves. Afterwards the
party went by train to Sand Coulee and
made a thorough examination of;the
coal mines at that ptlae.
Returning to Great Falls their train
took them to the Montana silver smelter,
which was examined as thoroughly as
time would pi-rmit. The G iant spring
was next visited, and those who were
familiar with this wonder were much

The Benton Group Again.
We understand that the difliculty over
the Benton group of mines owned by the
Gold, Silver, Platinum and Tellurium
Mining company, has been settled. It
will be remembered that T. E. Collins
and Jerry Collins have long claimed an
interest in these mines and have put up
money regularly to pay for representa
tion. But in the formation of the com
pany they were, owing to some defect in
the record, left out, whereupon T. E.
Collins re-located the whole group. The
members of the company, seeking
to retaliate, re-located numerous other
mines on the same grounds and placed
an armed guard over their own claims.
The shooting scrape that occurred in
consequence of this and the arrest of the
parties has led to the compromise of the
original difficulty.- Husbandman.
