MONTANA | — I WEIGHT & HENDRY, - Publishers. SATURDAY. AUGUST 2b, 1883. Entered at the postotiice in Livingston, M. T. as second-class mail matter. The .Jefferson County Sentinel by S. A. Robertson is a new paper publish ed at Boulder. It starts out with high encouraging symptoms. Billy Florence the actor is credited with a desire to succeed Sunset Cox in Congress. That august body once included Morrissey the prize tighter and whv not !• lorenee i Newspaper gossips say that the un explained reason lor Secretary Bayards uninterrupted stay at M ashington throughout the summer is the fact that our government's relations with Chili which have not been very cordial ior some years are becoming more strained. In a conversation yesterday with an engineer of experience, he asserted that a better route for a railway to Cooke Citv could be found up Clarke s 1- ork river than through the Park from the Park 1 »ranch, lie asserted that the grade would be easy and the work light.—Billings Gazette. This is a st range statement when is known that all the wagon traffic is over a natural road l'rom the terminus of the Park branch to Cooke, and that expensive attempts to build such a road from any other direction have been actual if not admitted failures. it An unusually marked activity in sil ver dollars all over the country is notice able about this time. The demand for them at the mints is in excess of the regular monthly coinage of 82,000,000. In Nevada mining camps the scarcity of silver coins is felt so severely as to be a positive hardship and the papers there are asking that the government pay its employes in that state entirely in silver so that the necessity may be met. The enemies of silver coinage may be able to explain these facts on a gold basis but it does not seem probable The investigators in regard to the re cent scathing letter from President Cleveland anent the recommendation of unworthy candidates for office have fixed upon Banker Bush of Salem, Ore gon, as the one Avho received the letter and Edward J. Dawn of Oregon, ap pointed judge of Alaska, as the undoubt ed candidate referred to. Dawn has been described as "a doctor without a dep loma, a banker without money, a preach er without a congregation and a lawyer without a brief." lie has followed all those avocations with equal lack of suc cess. _ The muddle in which the office of sheriff of Meagher county was involv ed has been settled judicially. Sheriff Howell resigned some weeks ago and turned over the keys of the jail and the records of his office to Coroner Kumpe who was legally the acting sheriff in all cases where the sheriff cannot act or where from any cause the office of sher iff is vacant. The county commission ers met and appointed Tal. Reed sheriff, assuming that they had power to fill all vacated county offices. Dr. Kumpe did not agree with them and had the case brought before Chief Justice Wade in chambers for an injunction to prohibit Reed from exercising the duties^of the office. The case was decided in Kumpe's favor; he was declared to be sheriff. The case is interesting as a precedent. The Helena Herald, referring to the letter in which Granville Stuart scouts the story of the existence of the scheme to divide Montana, says: But we know the attempt will be made, as it has been in Dakota, to divide the Territory, and from whatever direction this move may come we shall always oppose it. We do not believe Mr. Stuart will be a party to any such move, but when the tide of immigration that is now sweeping over Dakota covers eastern Montana it will be done, and it will be pushed desperate ly, and Mr. Stuart will see it within five years. And one of the principle argu mentsused will be the diversity of interests between the grazing and the mining portions. We believe in keep ing Montana united, fostering all inter ests alike and gaining admission as soon as possible. so in Something of the glamor of romance ind natural nobility which Cooper threw iround his Indian heroes but which is as lard to find in the Indian character as is the proverbial needle in a haystack cropped out in Poundmaker, chief of the Créés, at his trial a few days ago for murder and treason in connection with the Canadian rebellion. Waving his hand majest ically when asked if he had anything to say why he should not be sentenced he told them to do with him as they pleased since he was in their power; but he also reminded them that he had surrendered when he might still have been roving the prai ries and causing bloodshed and expense. He had saved lives, he said, and could not understand why he should be pun ished. He was sentenced to three years imprisonment but begged that he might be immediately put to death rather than suffer the ignominy and depression that would follow him to prison. The Canadian government, in its re gion to Louis Riel the convicted and leath-sentenced rebel, is between the harp horns of a dilemma by one of irhich it is pretty certain to be gor d. The French Canadian element in Canada which is overwhelming in Que »ec and the northwestern territories ,nd is by no means insignificant in New Brunswick, Ontario and Manitoba, de mands a lenient disposition of Riel— he commutation of his sentence at east. On the other hand the Protest to uuuutjiwuv v ------------* - j | the populous and wealthy pro\ nice o I I Ontario, say that Riel is a desperate and En^lisii-speaking population throughout Canada, and particularly in UIlluIlDj 1 I L dangerous rebel and murderer and that he deserves no consideration whatever, q that the only safety is in his death. The party which now controls Canadian | politics has got to deny the wishes of one or the other of these equally pow erful classes and the problem grows in teresting. Meanwhile the people of the United states look on with out meddling but with keen interest, wonder what Canada will do with her half-cracked and somewhat insignificant rebel and remember without regret that after Appomattox not a southerner lui --- „ I suffered any punishment worthy of the I name. Live Stock Shipments to England Bradstreet's calls attention to a matter of no little importance to certain por tiens of the northwest in a paragrapl which declares that "the transportation | of cattle from Wjomtag to Eoglaod a arouses the English trade observers to behold new foes in competition." The occasion for the remark was the recent shipment of one hundred cattle from Wyoming over the great lakes and across the sea, and the comment of the British Trade Journal that while the dead-meat trade has proved a failure, the live cattle trade is really a serious matter. The same paper says: "The Wyoming territory alone sends from its borders nearly enough meat to satisfy the require ments of London, and now that the north ern system of railway is finished, transit is comparatively an easy thing. Three year old bullocks, weighing 1,000 pounds each, can be bought at railroad points in Montana and Dakota for $31.50 per head. Transportation from Wyoming to London adds $22.80 to this figure, and at these rates it will be found that in this trade of supplying London with cattle from the great prairies of the northwest there is an enormous and profitable field for enter prise, of all or all in A Northwestern Diana. Medora Cowboy: A letter from Vic Smith, written at Billings, gives some further particulars relative to the Mar quise DeMores' hunting party. On the third day of the trip Vic was prostrated with mountain fever and the same morn ing Mrs. DeMores and he killed four bear, she killing three and Vic killing one near the camp-fire. Vic was sick five days and on the sixth, the Marquise and he went higher up into the moun tains and killed a fine bear apiece, making six in all, besides which, William Van Drieschc killed a handsome silver tip. Elk, antelope and sheep were nu merous. Brook trout was the staple food. The nights on the mountains were so cold that it was necessary to keep large log tires constantly burning. The Marquise was "loaded for bar" and would hunt nothing else. Seventeen were seen in all. Vic characterizes the Marquise as 'an excellent shot and fearless as a cow boy." Miss Sophia, who accompanied the Marquise, comes in for a share of praise for her Tapley-like quality of being al ways pleasant under difficulties. The party finished their hunt by a 185-mile ride across the country in four days. The Northern Pacific Tea Shipment*. New York telegram : The remarkable time made by the Northern Pacific in the shipment of tea from Tacoma to New York is the topic of conversation amoDg J the tea merchants. Heretofore it has taken from sixty-eight to seventy-five days | to bring the tea from Yokohama to New York by the way of the Suez Canal. Of late the overland routes have been making | strong bids for this business and it would seem now that they had secured it. Mr. Frazar of the firm of Frazar & Co., to I whom the tea was consigned, said to a | Tribune reporter : "We think the North ern Pacific has accomplished a wonderful feat in bringing this tea from Tacoma to New York in eight days and four hours, The railroad men give me to understand that it is the fastest time on record. The tea arrived in splendid condition. There was no delay or unnecessary deten tion, and the tea people here think the Northern Pacific is destined to become the popular route." Indian Fight. Glendive Times: In the fight between Crows and Sioux at Poplar creek a few days ago, one squaw was killed and buck creased. The raid was made after night and it was the head of a party of about 100 Indians returning from a dance that was attacked; an unearthly din was at once set up, and the Crows in making their escape tore down about 40 rods of wire fence. The wire is still eovered with paint, hair and gore. It was rather bold of the Crows to come down to with in a mile and a half of the agency head quarters. The agent's wife, Mrs. Parker | and Miss Weidman had arrived but a short time before and they thought the reds had turned loose. Indicted for Murder. Th.

PARK STREET, LIVINGSTON, MONTANA. C. H. Carver & Co.'s Column of Facta and Figures. On the first of August we began selling goods at greatly reduced rates, but strictly for cash. The result has been very flattering as our sales have steadily in creased, notwithstanding some croakers have said that it was impossible to do busi ness on a cash basis, on account of the closeness of money, but we notice that when the people are offered extra inducements in the way of good goods at unprecedent ed low prices they will manage to rustle the money, in order to take advantage of a good bargain. It is amusing to watch the opposition squirm, and to note some of the tricks they will resort to in order to squeeze out of the tigiit place our low quotations have forced them into. For example, we quote prime long, clear bacon at 10 cents per pound and to get around tills some of the little dealers will take their customer into a little dug-out which they style a cellar to show their bacon. The cute little dealer will have one side of bacon which he has sifted a little dirt onto (easily brushed off), and will speak his little piece as follows in answer to the customer's assertion that "Carver & Co. are selling bacon at 10 cents per pound "Well, if you want 10 cent bacon I have it,"—pointing to the dirty side—"but this bacon"— referring to the clean pile—"cannot be sold at less than 12}£ cents. Of course you can take your choice, but I prefer to sell you the best, as I only ship the other in to meet the 10 cent price." Well, friends, the cute little dealer is simply dealing out lies to you at 2% cents per pound and is systematically robbing you by a mean subterfuge, as his bacon is all alike and all came out of the same case. How long will the people of this lo cality be duped by the penny-ante dodges of these Jim Crow dealers. C. H. CARVER & CO.'S MEDICINE TALK. G. H. CARVER & CO.'S ADVERTISEMENT.
