The Proprietor of the N.,torious Sweet
Grsnu Saloon Taken to Ilenton.
Sheriff O'Neil of Choteau county ar
rived from Sweet Grass on the Canadian
line late Wednesday evening, haviing in
his custody a man named McKay, a hi
si accused of running a disorderly house
there. lie was taken to itenton yester
McKay ran a place called the Sweet
grass saloon, which has been referred to
in the T'nii N.E its tbeing a nuislan(e and
a menace to the authorities of b1th
sountries. A letter was also pullished
in these columns a few weeks ugo fromn
McKay, in which he claimed that there
was no truth in the repoirt that he wras
k eping a disreputable place and that
the while matter was the work of parties
who had a prejudice against him. The
mlatter will now tbe investigated
by the Choteau county autlhorities
and if McKay is the much aihusid lIr
sun he says he has now a splendild oppr
tunity to set hiumself right.
It is reported by a trustworthy gentle.
man from the vicinity of Sweet Grass
that the saloon McKay ran had causel
mo small amount of trouble among thi
smounted police who frequently visited it
and on several occasions went back to
their barracks in a beastly state of intox
ication. Two non-commissioned ofliers
are said to have been reduced to the
rank of privates anti ieverely reprimand
ed because of some trouble they were
implicated in as a result of frequenting
the saloon and getting drunk.

An old gold mine near Georgetown.
Cal., long since deserted by its owners,
is still visit,.l by miners who take out
an occ.asional grub stake.
Henry Fraser. an old Georgetown
miner, went into the mine ten days ago
to work a claim about a mile under
ground. Ho lost his candle and matches.
and was unable to find his way among
the hundred.s of pas~sages.
For tell dlays he was without fold,
water or light, and suffered untold
agonies. His friends grew anxious at
his long absence and started. out in
search of him. They immediately re
paired to the mine alnd found hien more

The Puturn of Natural Gas.
For three years the territory from
which natural gas has been drawn has
not been sensibly enlarged, and except
in the now fields its general use for
manufacturing has steadily diminished.
There certainly need be no fears that
coal mining will becomo a lost art. But
we are inclined to think that the pres
ent tendency is mainly a halt or reac
tion andl that natural gas has come to
stay. Just now its uses are merely sug
gestive of the future.
It brings to us fuel in the most con
venienlt form--the relfined essence freed
from drurs, weight, impurity: self trans
porting. anuokel."s,. an invisible potent
agent that o,rn·e possessed of we cannot
well part with. If nature cannot be do
pended upon to furnish it ready made
we must undertake to make it or some
thing nearly identical out of coal or oil.

Our First (Congrrs.
On the first day of March, 1789!, the first
Congress of the United States of Ameri
ca began its first session. Though we
ometiumes date our national existence
from ,July 4th, 1776, when the Declaration
of Independence was promulgated to
the world, that was really only the es
tablishment of a confederacy of inde
pendent states, for the single purpose
of freeing themselves from the domina
tion of the British Crown. Under this
compact the Revolutionary War was
fought, but after peace was gained, the
paticular interest of the separate states
began to clash, and it was evident that
the General Government needed larger
powers if the country was to amount to
anything among the peoples of the
earth. Our existence as a consolidated
and powerful nation may therefore pro
perly he said to have begun in 1780.
The history of no nation can show such
a growth in 100 years. And but a small
part of our 06,000,000 people would be
here were it not for railroads, for the
center of the continent could not be
populous without them, and the bulk of
the population is in the central portion
of the country. Foremost among these
transportation systems is The Burling

quick and easy communications with
