MONTANA AT NEW ORLEANS.
Onr Correspondent'# Interesting Descri p tion ot the Territory s Display. (From our Special Correspondent.) New Orleans, Jan. 13th, 1885.—We note an increase in the attendance at the Exposition each day and the work draws near completion in all depart ments. A steam railroad is now under con struction from the city to the Exposit ion grounds which when done will af ford ample accommodation for all goers and comers. Montana is making a display which will in every way be a credit to that territory and its people. 1 he space as signed is in the northeast portion of the government building, 54 feet front and 85 feet deep. Four large banners with "Montana" painted thereon can be seen from all portions of the building. From the center of these banners swings the great seal of the territory painted on canvass in a circle four feet in diameter. From the center of the space to each post are evergreen streamers with flags attached at intervals of 4 feet. A fine display of taxidermist work decorates each post in the space. The principal feature of the exhibit is the mining interests. Every mine and mining camp in the territory has a rep resentation here in the shape of some of its products. Products from the mines of Butte city the best mining camp in the county are especially shown consisting of gold, silver, iron and copper ores. The statis tics show the total out put of bullion in Montana for the year 1884 to be $23, 000,000 Butte alone furnishing $115,000, 000 of this amount. While the monthly mining pay role of Butte is $020,000. Each piece of ore shown has printed on it the assay value, name of mine, name of owner and bullion 'product for the year. Large cubes of coal from the famous bituminous coal fields—one cube from the Ilorr Bros.' celebrated coal mountain at Gardiner on the Upper Yellowstone, weighing fully 2 tons—and a large col lection from various other mines. Varieties of building stone are shown— granite with a high polish, slate and sand stone, marble, sand for glass, brick and brick clay and various soils from different parts. In timber the exhibit is large, show ing as it does the woods from 20,000,000 acres of forestry. It is shown rough in the log and in lumber in the high state of polish, grow ing fir and pine, varieties of shrubs from the largest willow to the smallest sage brush are displayed. The exhibit of grains and grasses is varied and in teresting. Wheat in the stalk to its product—flour. Oats, barley, rye—in all the largest average yield per acre of any state or territory. Samples of various kinds of vegetables, samples of apples grown near Missoula, a museum of pet rifactions and fossils, collection of fur from the fur-bearing animals, Indian implements, relics and bead work, stuff ed mountoin lions, stuffed beaver and birds—in all making a collection which cannot fail to attract the admiration of every one. Montana has no exhibit of sheep, cattle and horses, but a glance at the statistics displayed in the space tells the story—for instance: 850.000 head of cattle valued at $30, 000,000. 600.000 head of sheep valued at $2, 000,000. Commissioner Harris has succeeded in bringing together a creditable display in every department—one that will at tract the attention of capitalists and those seeking for homes in a new field, _ _ ____E. O. C. Ranee Cattle in England. Evidently Mr. Morton-Fre wen's plan for sending cattle direct from the North western plains to the pastures aud stalls of England and Scotland is likely to meet little encouragement from the English farmers. At a dinner by a farm ers' club in England recently Lord Jer sey very politely but plainly told Mr, Morton-Frewen there were someYankee notions to which Englishmen do not take kindly, and that the scheme of sending store cattle from America to England was one of them. Mr. Mor ton-Frewen undertook to show T that Englishmen are foolish to spend so much money in the purchase of dead meat instead of buying live eattle from Wyoming for less money; but his hear ers interrupted him by crying, "We can afford it." A Slaughter of Deer. Wood River Times : The through west bound passenger train on the Oregon Short line, recently, near Medbury, ran into about 200 deer that lay huddled on the track in a deep cut, killing 28 and mang ling a number of others. The train was going at the rate of about 25 miles an hour, and the deer on its approach arose and stood staring at the headlight of the locomotive, evidently dazed. The train was stopped as soon as possible, and the train'boys jumped off to capture the kill ed. Nate Kingsbury, of Hailey, secured three, which he threw into his postal car: the express messenger got four, and the other boys proportionate numbers. Some of the crippled deer hopped away on the stumps. The same night lour deer were killed near McCammon, on the Utah and Noithcrn, by the north-bound pas senger train. The next morning three fine black-tailed deer were killed on file Wood River branch by the train. When the weather is exceedingly cold, file deer seem to fancy railroad tracks as • good place to obtain shelter from the wind, and they invariably lose their bead on the approach of a locomotive head light.
