Tlie Rocky F«>rk Roiul. A Billings special to the Independent says: The report in the Independent that Dennis Ryan, of St. Paul, has taken the contract to build the railroad from the Northern Pacific to the Rocky Fork coal fields is fully corroborated. His contract is to have the road built by Jan uary 1st, but it is expected that the load will be in actual operation by the first of December. The distance is only forty five miles and the most difficult part of the work is the bridging of the Yellow stone. This done, Mr. Ryan says he can keep ahead of the track with a force of graders clear to the mines, so easy is the grading along the whole route. Though Ryan does not admit it, it is said by his friends that he is largely interested in the road and that he v.ill ultimately be its president. The fact that H. C. Davis, of the Northern Pacific, is the present pres ident is explained by the fact that the company has traffic arrangements with the Northern Pacific, but the latter com pany has no active interest in tlie coal road. That is really controlled by Mon tana people with Iowa coal men—the same who own the coal mines. It is not understood that Dennis Ryan has any ma jority interest in the coal road, but he may have in the Cooke City extension. Mr. Ryan is described as taking a great interest in the Cooke City mines. It is known that his brother, a prominent min ing expert, has been into the district sev eral times and his reports have been very favorable. Of course it is a rule of min ing operations that it is cheaper to haul smelting ores down hill than to haul the supplies up. One of the strong possibil ities is that a large reduction plant may be erected on Rock creek or the Yellow stone to which the ores of Cooke may lie hauled and also those from Stillwater dis trict. Nor is it too much to suppose that m due time a railroad may be run trom some point on the Yellowstone to Castle mountain district, and haul the magnifi cent smelting ores from there to such a reduction plant. The coal at Rocky Fork is all tlie liest of fuel, and some of I the veins afford an excellent quality of in as At a to W. tana ure ican ner to have have and by They ing the to un to the the in on of the the to the a re as to coking coal. There is also an abundance of lime and iron for fluxing in the vicinity and a reduction plant could he built on the Yellowstone that would be in the cen ter of supplies, as well as convenient to several districts of inexhaustible ore sup ply. Your correspondent is not makirg mere speculations, but is in a position io say on reliable information that the plan outlined above is in contemplation, and there is every prospect that it will be carried out. an The Press Association Meeting. The re-union of the members of the Territorial Press Associalion at Hel ena this week was the most interest ing meeting held since its organ ization. The sessions were largely at atteuded and an unusually entertaining programme was carried out. New mem bers were added to the association as fol lows: Philip Schmitz, Montana Free Presse; Leslie Sulgrove, Live Stock Jour nal; James B. Walker, Helena Herald; Win. M. Dolliver, Helena Herald; Walter M. O'Dwyer, Great Falls Tribune; W. R. Harber. River Press; George Alderson, Avant Courier; J. D. Whelpley, Billings Gazette; E. B. Camp, Billings Gazette; Henry Nichols, Helena Independent; Hon. Cornelius Hedges, Helena Herald; C. L. I). Haig, Butte Miner; W. J. Pen rose, Butte Mining Journal, and Nat Y. Hoss, Northwest Tribune. The follow ing honorary members were elected : L. Samuels, of the West Shore, Portland: S. P. Panton, Great Falls; Mrs. F. A. Reynolds, of Beaverhead county, and J. S. M. Neill, of Helena. Officers for the ensuing year were chosen as follows: President, W. II. Sutherlin, of the Hus bandman; first vice-president, R. E. Fisk, of the Herald; second vice-president, Alex.

On Wednesday the democratic and re publican committees of Custer county met and united upon James A. Garlock of Miles City, who it was supposed would be elected without opposition. The fol lowing dispatch to the Independent, however, indicates that such was not the case: Contrary to general expectation, Dr. Burleigh was sprung as a candidate for the council late last night, and the vote in Miles City resulted : Bur leigh, 129; Garlock, 77; Mauldin, 3. In revenge for the springing at the eleventh hour of Burleigh by the disgruntled poli ticians, a notorious negro, the clown of the town, known as Lieut. Gus Mauldin, half-witted and wholly ignorant, was put in the field with the result above stated. Outside precincts have been heard from as follows: Forsyth, 32 votes cast. Mauldin, 20, Garlock, 11; Burleigh, 1. At Hathaway, 13 votes were cast. Bur leigh 11; Garlock, 2. There was no in teiest at all in the election, less than half a vote being polled in Miles, and at least one half of the county did not vote at all, knowing no candidate. The opposition to Garlock was on account of his connec tion with a notorious trial at last term of court as prosecuting attorney, and the saloon men worked against him for that reason alone. As the matter now stands, there is likelihood ol Custer county being unreprseuted in tlie council, as the elec tion was informal and not in accordance with the statutes. It is thought that Gar lock will contest, and that will settle tlie matter. Canadian Cattle Seizures. A special from Great Falls says : Geo. W. Taylor, who recently went to Leth bridge in the interest of northern Mon tana stock men, has just returned. He confirms the reports relative to tlie seiz ure by the Canadian authorities ol Amer ican cattle who stepped over an imaginary bound iry line to drink the waters of upper Milk river. George Barron of the Montana cattle company, says substan tially the same as Mr. Taylor, and further states that the cattle seized in this man ner by the mounted police, and belonging to Mr. Spencer, have not been returned. Heirs from Ireland. New York special: Two immigrants arrived by the steamship Germanic, who have great expectations in Montana, Bridget Mooney, aged 72, and her niece, Catharine Flannngan, aged 45, from County Clare, Ireland. They say they have fallen heirs to a large ranch and a fortune ot $150,000 in Phil brook, Fergus county, Mont., left them by Patrick Mooney, son of the old lady. They show a letter from Probate Judge Withers, of that place to that effect. Hav ing only two pounds with which to reach the place, they were sent to Washington to join another legatee who had inherited $2,500.
