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
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
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.

Henry Nichols, Helena Independent;
Hon. Cornelius Hedges, Helena Herald;
C. L. I). Haig, Butte Miner; W. J. Pen

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:

Alex. Devine, Independent; third vice

place for holding the next annual meet
ing, the date being left to be fixed by the
Tlie Special Election in Ciinter County.
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
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.
