West, of Fort Keogh, who has been engaged by the Smithsonian party, now collecting specimens in this country, got in from their camp on Sand creek last night. He came in to get transportation at the fort to bring them in, they having kill ed twenty-five buffalo, the requisite number of skeletons. He reports a most desperate time in endeavoring to reach Miles City. He left the camp on Sand creek on the 22nd of November to make Miles City in four days. He was, how ever, lost in the blizzard and wandered, without hope of ever seeing civilization, from the 23rd to the 29th, when he reached Cree's sheep ranch. His ex periences were terrible. He had dis patches for the commander at the fort and a large quantity of mail matter from the party, and despairing of living to see them delivered, he kept a diary, from which we find that his horse gave out early; that in endeavoring to warm his freezing feet he burned both of them; had to cut the tails from his overcoat to cover his feet; that food and matches gave out; that a fever set in from hunger; that after eleven shoià at the only living thing he saw, a sage hen, he broke its wing, and had to eat it uncooked. He arrived at Cree's ranch exhausted and slightly frozen, after six days' and nights' encounter with a Montana blizzard. His horse, which was too badly "used up" to take to the post last night, was left at one of our livery stables. Railroad Note».

River Press: Word was received in the city last evening that the surveyors coining from the east are within eighty five miles of Fort Benton, and are rapidly working this way, not only running a preliminary survey but are actually lo cating the road. They have written to one of our business firms to secure a con siderable quantity of oats for their teams, indicating that they intend to fight it out on the line all winter if necessary. It is probable that they will be here in a few weeks. Mr. Barclay, who was chief en gineer of the Galt road, and who is well known here, is in charge uf one of the parties; and Mr. Roberts, who we believe was at the head of the Northern Pacifie survey that ran a line from Billings to this city some years ago, is also with them.

About four years ago a man named Cayneaux wrote to his family in Minne sota, from Helena, that he was about to come home, and that they need not re ply to his letter as he would be on his way to Stillwater before a letter could reach him. From that time his wife never heard from him and all efforts to obtain intelligence of him utterly failed. A few months ago his wife and daugh ter came to Helena for the purpose of instituting search for the lost husband and father. Shortly afterwards the young lady fell ill and from that time forward was an almost helpless invalid up to the time she was carried on board the train at Helena the other morning. During her stay here Mrs. Cayneaux used every effort to discover her hus band, but without success. After leav ing her daughter with her other chil dren at Stillwater, she intends to return to Helena and continue in her detective work until she has discovered the whereabouts of her husband, or ex hausted every means to ascertain what has become of him.
