What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

The prices of claims are high, which is an assurance that claim -owners do not value their ehances lightly, and as all unite in one opinion as to the extent and richness of the new diggings, they may be set down as a reality, only to be fully realized when they are opened up and worked. Mr. J. J. Ilarvey. of the Big Hole, reports the Big Hole high and on the rise. Ile also says that many head of cattle have died on the valley of that stream, being poisoned from the eating of wild parsnips. Col. Black's ox train, from Bozeman. consisting of eleven six -yoke ox teams, with trail -wagons. passed through the city on Tuesday. destined for Corinne. The train presented a tine appearance. and was partially loaded o ith furs and hides. The new Alley -way. running through from Jackson atreet to Van Buren street, has been cleaned out and graded.and is now in use, affording to the property \\ that block accommodations not heretofore enjoyed. The notice calling for an election for Al- derman in the Second Ward, to fill a vacan- cy. as pobliehed in last week's paper, has been annulled. and there will be no election held. as advertised by the Mayor and City Attorney.

Fore- man & Ready, the stirring proprietors, are careful in making selections of stock for slaughtering purposes and serve the public with none but the fatest and best. Their wagon calls everywhere within reasonable supplying meat -eating people. The speed displayed by the running horses down at Nevada, Adobetown and Junction has rendered it an absolute necessity to lay out and fix up a better race track. Mr. Os- car Sedman has taken time matter in hand and has laid out a half -mile course, on the flat, back of Judge 3Iearns' store at Junc- tion. We understand that the course is to be put in good condition immediately', and that many horses and ponies will be trained from now on for the Fourth of July races. \Judea.\ Van Fisk -the 199 -pounds of hu- man avoirdupois engaged in soliciting and collecting for the Herald - was in this Billy Norwood has struck a rich streak on the Cremlin Lode, on Granite Gulciewhich has indications of being a permanent good thing.

Ellis was up from Silver Star this week. Ile reports continued activity in that camp, and increasing excitement over the new placer discoveries on the Jefferson and Big Hole Rivers. The mining operations at and around Adobetown have not been prosecuted with so much energy for many seasons as they are at the present. Every claim is run with a full set of hands, and they are all paying good profits. The same may be said of the claims around Nevada and at Junction, and all along the gulch between the towns.

As an indication of the general prosperi- tv prevailing among the miners in this sec- tion we have noticed that considerable in- quiry has been made for hands during - the past week. Sot le parties from Summit ward have been after hands, offering good wages for good men. A miner from Bivins was in the city. the other day, trying for hands, hilt idle men were scarce, and he left with- out !rettinsf help. Just now there appears to be a scarcity of good miners. No fears need be entertained this summer that men in Madison County will go poorly clad or want for stylish wearing apparel. To avoid the possibility of such a thing hap- pening to men, Ed. Walter has received and is receiving a stock of gents' geods that are atot to be surpassed for style anti texture of fabric.

A MImber of dwellings are being beauti- fied with tastily -tinted paint, adding much to the looks of time property. If others would follow the example set,the city would present a more inviting appearance. Secretary Callaway received, on Wednes- day, two hundred copies of Volume One ot Montana Law Reports. The reports are to be distributed to States and Territories in return for like reports received from them, in conformity with a statute provid- ing for the same. Mr. A. J. Rosenstine was brought before Acting United States Commissioner Alden on a charge of selling cigars contrary to the provisions of the Internal Revenue law. A hearing of the ease resulted in holding Of Mr. S. in $1,000 bonds to appear at the next term of U. S. Court. The cigars were sold at the auetion which Rosenstine has been holding at his store -room. and proba- bly no hifringement or violation of law was intended when the cigars were sold. Two lads. weary of the irksome duties imposed on them at comfortable homes, left the city the other day, bolding striking out for the city of defiled saints. They provided themselves with a box of matches and fifteen cents in cash. Next day, crestfallen and hungry, the boys arrived at home satis- fied.

From Dr. Ogden who journeys Eastward we are in receipt of a few jottings, dated at Fort Benton on the 21st. Ile writes: \ My last was from Sun River, and I promised to do it again directly. \ As to Sun River, one would rather live there a single week than a whole month. \ I visited Fort Shaw aud found it a neat little place. I may not be a competentjudge of what eonstitutes the -good and bad tinal- ities of a foit, but it may be safely asserted that there is not a superior military fort on the Continent. It is beautifully situated on the right bank of the Sun River. The buildings have fieen so arranged that they encircle about two acres of ground, which is used for drill, parade and other purposes. The dwellings, hospital, barracks, stables, and in fact everything pertaining to the Fort is kept in the best order -clean as clean can be. There is a place for every- thing and everything is to be found in its proper place. Too much praise cannot be given General Gilbert and his officers for making Fort Shaw such a model place. Messrs. McKnight & [Leith are doing a good business in the commissary store, and they are accommodating and well liked. `• This town, Benton, contains about one hundred and fifty souls -including half- breeds and \domesticated\ squaws. Two stores, two hotels and seven saloons in full blast with three more in course of erection, will sum up Fort Benton's principal build- ings. Times; are close, and the display of greenbacks wouldn't buy a pauper's break- fast -at least they are not circulating - , but they may be horded up for speculative pur- poses. \ The first boar of the season, the Fon- tennelle, arrived here this mottling and will start down as soon as the freight is elis- charged.

Bogert, Secretary and Treasurer of the Yellowstone Empedi- tion, for a new organization to proseeute the prospecting anew. Mr. B. says: \A party of 200 or 300 Crow warriors is about to go out against the Sioux, and at least 125 of the late Command are anxious to return to the Big Horn country. If we go rightly to work we may yet recover the ground the Committee has reason to know has been lost; and, if we 410 SO, it is necessary to re- organize immediately. We, therefore, call for instant enrollment of all who desire to take advantage of the efforts the Com- mittee is making to inaure a successful Ex- pedition. We are now expecting valuable assurances of support and assistance, which will be made public at the proper time, and in the meantime we ask ail who wish tojoiu us to send in names and data without de- lay.\ The Bozemanites are not satisfied with the temporary failure and it is quite probable another Expedition will he speed- ily organized.

The lauding of freights as high up as Benton will save much teaming. and the indications are now that the Missouri will be in a condition to enable boats to hind freights at that point. Mowing and Reaping Machines. The Mowers and Reapers manufactured by the Champion Machine Company. of Springfield, 0., have a reputation second to no other machine made in the United States and the Company have put up for this sea- son's sale 25,000 Mowers and Reapers. Mr. Stone, agent for the Company, has been over in Idaho Territory, where he sold Sev- eral of these machines, to be used in the Lemhi Valley. Mr. Stone is prepared to deliver these Machines in any part of Mon- tana, and parties wishing to invest in one would do well to write to him. The uni- versal satisfaction given by these machines . is all the indorsement they need. --40-1W•e The Adobetown Races. Last Sabbath afternoon the Adobetown race course was full of excitement, and the way the cayuses skipped over the track was not slow, although the scene might not have been pleasing to the piety of pious Chris- tians, on a hot Sunday, to witness the speed of ponies let out to their best gait under a vigorous application of dried and twisted raw -hide. Five races came off in rapid suc- cession and time festest bronco won every time. No scullduggery was practiced and the men who bet their money done so with- out compulsion as Montana statutes do not compel men to bet money ou Sundays. Greenbacks were tolerably free, showing that the boys around Adobetown arc taking out some of ever -needful. Tosmorrow, Sueday, a number of races are to come off. Tickets of admission, free -no seats being reserved. Items from Bannack. The first team from the railroad at Corinne arrived on the2.4th. Mining is progressing favorably and the various companies are busy. Shelton & Co.'s mills and arastrass are run- ning steadily, with their usual success. C. 0. Trask & Son's mule train, loaded with Merchandise, from Corinne, arrived OH the 27th. Sheriff Metlin started fur Helena, last Sunday, taking with him McClain, who is crazy, for treetment at the Hospital. The Bannack Indians passing through town the other day, caught a drawing of Injun whisky, and on the road to Horse Prairie one of them pulled a six-shooter on a teamster, but didn't shoot. Major Bruce bought a grindstone yester- day. Ile will, probably, use it in an effort to grind his way into the House of Repre- sentatives. Its a thin dodge, the Grangers won't be caught in that way. -Daily Inde- pendent, 26th. The veteran Major may, possibly, stand a better show with time Grangers than with the Democracy ! By the use of a grind- stone he may be enabled to griud his poli- tics to a sharp point. Who knows? We learn from Mr. James Johnson, who came over to Helena yeeterday. that Dog Creek promises well and a very fair season is anticipaticed. There are from 50 to 75 miners or claim owners in the gulch. and so fitr as developed the claims prospects well. On Gilbert's claims above discovery, a .$15 nugget was taken out a few days ago.

As they clean up every night now, I presume they are getting good pay; at any rate they seem satisfied. Messrs.

They have commeneed cleaning up the bed -rock left over last fall. Their prospect looks very encouraging. Col. 31artindale, as superintendent of the upper flume of the Highland company -put down this spring -is getting the work in good shape and will make his mark before the season closes. Ed. is a good miner. The Pine Grove Company have just got under way, making a lair start. This company start in. with a flattering prospect for a lucrative season. So mote it be, for they are good boys, all of them. Roy Southmayde has his claim in good - shape for business, and means it. Hy- draulic instead of pick, as heretofore, with which to knock the dirt down, and a der- rick to remove largb rock, he appears to have the thing his own way, and will, un- doubtedly, get in a good season's work. Schenck,. Rossitter & Co. are moving off heaps of dirt, and will keep up their lick while the high water holds out. Their chances for good pay are more than aver- age. & Hyde's, the upper, I might add, the best -paying flume in the gulch, has just got under way,but will give a good account of itself in the end. Taking into consideration the light fall of snow the past winter, and the consequent light flow of water in the gulch, the season will be a more prosperous one for the miner than had been anticipated. Summit looks very quiet now, but I hope co e e l o . n g to see her the busy town she was A. Y. Z. Another Mining District ou the Jef- ferson River. Another Mining District has been organ- ized on the Jefferson River, called the \Silver Star District.\ It extends from the upper Silver Star Bridge to Parsons' Bridge, embracing the bars on the East side of the River. Prospecting in the River gravel, has been attended with favorable results, and as soon as the water falls sufficiently to permit of work being done in the channel a number of miners will Commence operation. The officers of the District are Dr.C. S. Ellis, President, and G. W, Brown, Recorder. If David A.

Little Rock, May 9.-A munber of shots were fired this morning, and one of Brooks' colored troops was killed. Later -A recruiting party of Brooks' was captured and brought to the guard house. Captain Welch and party which escaped from the steamer Hattie, yesterday, arrived here to -day. The Federal troops have made temporary fortification in various parts of the city. Baxter's forces have also in- trenched themselves, and since ten o'clock this morning permit neither exit from or entry to their lives without passes. The schools closed to -day and business is stagnant. The ministers have called on the people to unite in supplication to God, to -morrow, that bloodshed will be prevented and that right will prevail. Nearly enough of the members of the Legislature have arrived for quorums of both Houses. Arrange- ments have been made for convening the Legislature outside of the House limits. Washington, May 9. -The attorneys and agents of Brooks and Baxter here have signed an agreement subject to the approv- al of the contestants for the Governorship of Arkansas for the settlement of the difficul- ties. The legislature is to be convened by a call from each party on the fourth Mon- day in May and they shall decide accor- ding to the State laws which of the claim- ants had the majority of votes in the elect- ion of 1872. The decision of the legislature shall be binding on both contestants, and both shall suspend military operations pend- ing the decision. The Attorney General drew up and indorsed the document. The President has expressed the hope that the matter will litmus be amicably settled. It is understood unless this receives the con- sent of the principals the President will summarly settle the difficulty. Little Rock, May 23.-A resolution passed the House to -day, requesting Clayton and Dorsey to resign their positions in the LT. S. Senate. The preamble sets forth that the said Senators secured their election by fraud : that they misrepresent their con- stituents in Arkansas ; that they entered and conspired with the Supreme Court, Justice 3IcLane and Joseph Brooks, to overthrow the State govermnent, making war against its constituted authorities. The resolutions ask the Senate, if they re- fuse to resign, to investigate the charges made in the preamble and to expel them. Gen. R. C. Newton was to -day appoihted State Treasurer, in place of Henry Page, resigned. The action of the foreign bond -holders, in attempting to divert capital from the development of the valuable coal and iron interests of Virginia is being serious- ly felt in that State. The commissioners sent to London thr that purpose had suc- ceeded in interesting not only English capital but English' miners in the enter- prise. But just at these projected ar- rangements were being completed, a cir- cular was issued discouraging in every way suet) investment, and declaring it a measure of common prudence to aban- don it because no private investment can be safe where the obligations of justice, morality and laws are set at defiance by the community as disclosed in the refits - :11 of Virginia to pay the interest on her I bonded indebtedness.
