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.

Madison anti Gallatin County Lines at the JeffertiOn River Mines. The objective pnint starts in mid -channel of Jelferton Ricir. opposite: the - mouth of Boulder Riven Random line run south 54 deg. and 30 . Min. east to mouth of Big Can- yon on WillOW Creek. On account of in- surmountable obstructions, in the shape of impassable mountains, Wiens were. run, the first offset nne running south 35 deg. and 30 min., east 255- chains and 65 links, thence south 54 deg. and 30 min. -east, at a varia- tion of 19 deg. and 30 win., east 982 chains; thence north 35 deg% 'and 30 min., south 61 chains and 8 links to the month of Big Can- yon on Willow Creek. Returning on corrected line, north 57 deg, and 10 min., west 431 chains and crosses Sand Creek (the course here being north,) and at 537 chains intersected the Jefferson River, three -fourths of a mile below the mouth of Antelope Creek -the course of the Jefferson River at this point being north 25 deg. and 00 min. east. From this survey it vaill be seen that the whole of the mines embraced in the Canyon District. on the Jefferson River, are withiu the boundaries of Madison County. The Surveyors -Jas. Page of Madison County and Reed of Gallatin -have erected monu- ments on all high points and road crossings on the line of boundary between the two Counties. A manifest spirit of anxiety and concilia- tion is witnessed among the wire -pulling politicians of Lewis and Clarke, just now. in regard to Jefferson Uotinty. When Ed. Cardwell. Bob Fisher and John P. Barnes were candidates, the Helenaties left noth- ing undone to slaughter them. Now these same politicians, of both parties, are eager to consult the wishes of the people of Jef- fereon simply for the reason that they want to catch votes for their pet scheme of removing the Capital. The sensible men of Jefferson County will remember the inju- ries of the past, and readily see through the present play. Mahan & Mellon's Bed -Rock Saloon, at Pioneer, is certainly the best fitted -up and arranged saloon in the Territory. The pro- prietors are both popular men, anti know how to run their business iu the most ap- proved manner. A Club Room, fixed up in style, and billiard tables, are in conneetion w i t n the bar, where the choicest liquors and en t nars to be had in Montana are kept. 1_ French & Tnomae have received a large invoke of merchnndiee, and their store- rooms are well-fillean They have a large assortment of groceries and a big stack of flour, and the whisky they sell ie of at qual- ity not surpassed. The editor of the Missoulian likens him- self to a lion -and of the species that coireen singly and but once a year. In this that editor is mistaken, tor he is merely w hang - doodle -mostly a doodle. • It may not be an in:pertinent inquiry to ask which one of the boys, politically, Turk of the Missuuliau is? One year ago he run as the Republican candidste for lreasurer of Missoula County, and now he is, oiten- sibly, editing a Democratic newspaper. Perhaps his political principles are as va- riable as his opinions on the Capital ques- tion. Let the people judge. For several days past we had noticed the editor of the Montanian standing about an inch higher than his usual altitude when occupying his highest -heeled boots. Cause why ? Read the following notice from the last issue ot tnat paper. ago& sal- gratulating the happy parents: 66 Born, in Boston, Mass., on June 19,1874, to the wile of Henry N.

With all kindly feeling toward the Ed- itor ot the Muntaniau, I must protest against what I deem au uncalled-for attack on Marshal Wheeler for his refusal to open the Coen Room for political meetings. Hie previous experience in the =utter these meetings used the furniture of tite same, and his inability to obtain compensation for the damages, induced the; issuing of the order as to sectarian meetings.

Jefferson River Mines. There seems now no doubt that these mines are a big thing. We have the most unbounded confidence in their richness. .The discovery of this large and extensive gold field at this time is a godsend, as our people were greatly discouraged by the de- struction of their crops this season by grass- hoppers. The Jefferson River is falling very rapidly and work, no doubt. will com- mence very soon in the mines. Owners of claims over there are much exeited believ- ing they see large fortunes in sight, and we hope they may realize their full hopes. -Courier. When the editor of the Missoulian passed through Deer Lodge City. after being \en- tertained\ for a few days at Helena, it was noticed that he wore a new Nankeen suit of common clothes -the same as sold by the \ Cheap John \ clothiers of Helena. Re- sponsible men in Deer Lodge offered to chance two -to -one that the editor of the Missoulian only received $35 in fractional currency for supporting Helena for the Cap- ital. Further than this, it is the universal opinion, throughout Deer Lodge County. that the Helenaites have a mighty dear bar- gain, as the Missoulian's power is \chaffy.\ \ Enoch's Advocate,\ a paper devoted to the interests of the United Order of • Wood- en Shoes, is issued by We, Us & Co. -and is_supposed to be printed in Salt Lake City. .It is an advocate of old 6` Enoch, \ e., Brig- ham Young and its thrusts at and pictorial caricaturing ot the leading Saints may be classed as severely good. All the citizens of the metropolis of the ,Northern County of Montana are, to quote front the Independent, \ standing on their heads nut of pure delight.\ The cause of this pure delight is that Halenaites have got a hand ongan. It was imported from Gerineny for special purposes, and was tin:imported overland by that celebrated Helena institution called the \Diamond 'R' I Company.\ It is said enat all the people I of the \metropolis\ are praeticing on this I organ that song-\ AVe're Bound for Salt River\ -and that they expect to march to that music after the August election. We _hope they may become proficient and do creditable marching when the time arrives. wean We are in reeeipt of a spicy little paper - The Daily Press -issued from the office of the Utah .Miniog Gazette, every evening, pyralit.thet S.uhh9tit. It Aea full of local news and is red-hot in its werfare upon Mormon- ism, and its debasing influences. Phil. Poindexter, of the firm of f)rr & Poindexter, of Beaverhead County, is et Cheyenne, with 350 of choice 5 -year -old Montana steers. As soon as they are fat- tened up they will be shipped to the Chica- eo market. At the Democratic Primary held at Hele- na precinct a very light vote was brought out.- Only one ticket with '• For Delegate to Congress. Martin Maginnis,\ was in the field. This looks, to say the least, like home indorsement of the Major. It is asserted that Tom Farrell is the pooreet driver of a span of horses in Mon- tana Territory. There must be a great deal of truth , in this assertion, for within a week he had three runaways. The last one took place near Adobetown. A demolished bug- gy and crippled horse is the financial dam- age sustained. Tom Farrell was thrown out, hitting the hard ground with the top of his head, hurting the ground some and injuring that portion of his cranium coming in contact with that fraction of earth he lit upon. Mr. Farrell also \stoved\ up his right hand, and is, at present, in no condi- tion to fight a prize tight or lick a reporter.

Any of you who have crossed mining or irrigating ditches this month and have noticed the nurfaces almost covered with grasshoppers floating with the current, will not question the statement we heard at Yamhill Sunday. that the day before they had actually choked a gauge -box . from the Rock Creek Ditch :inn were massed four or five inches deep for rods.

The Columbia Mining CoMpany, of the same place, have purchased 2,000 feet on the Park Lode for $30.000. A new piano has been received at Saint Vincent's Academy, Helena. It was man- ufactured in Louisville, Ky., in which city they are now manufacturing instruments of a superior kind. On last Monday, the dead body of Lloyd Mellon was found in Jack Ryarson's barn. on Ophir Gulch, about four miles below Blackfoot. The poor wretch died from the effects of intemperance and exposure. Several proposals have been filed with Mr. Smith, chairinan of the Commission ap- pointed to locate the site of the Assay Office in Helena. Lote on Broadway, Rodney. Warren and Ewing streets, are offered. Tiiie new bell. for the Catholic Church, at Relent', arrived on last Saturday. It weighs twelve hundred pounds. Col.

There is considerable stir in the Sixteen - Mile .District, forty miles from Bozeman and twenty miles from the Diamond road. Recent assays of the ores run as high as $200 per ton. Fred Grant. of Emmetsburg, one day last week, struck his left foot with an axe en- tirely severing the forward inner third of the foot, and was taken to St. Joseph's Hos- pital, Deer Lodge, for treatment.

Helena the other day on a reported discovery of a mountain of Cinnabar. The parties took jngs and tanks with them to catch the pure quicksilver that is said to run freely. This is, like many other things, one of Helena's hmnbugs. W. G. Edwards, Thos. SimPson, W. E. Bass, T. J.

PASSAGE OP THE POLAND BILL POR UTAH. Congress has passed the Poland bill re_ lating to the Judiciary of Utah. The bill was so modified in the Senate, how- ever, that the result cannot be consid- ered a victory for the anti -Mormon influ- ence. It removes the difficulty which had arisen as to the rightful authority of summoning juries, by requiring the Uni- ted States Marshal to summon jurors for the Supreme and DistriFt Courts of that Territory. The Mormons have hitherto claimed that the Sheriffs eleeted by the people had the right to summon juries, but the Supreme Court of the Territory refuse4 to recognize juries summoned by them, and the Supreme Court of the United States decided that juries stun - molted by the United States Marshal were illegal. So matters in judicial pro- ceedings came- to a dead -lock two years ago, and have remained so since, except where both parties accepted a jury as summoned by the Territorial Marshal. The Supreme Court of the Territory has been at constant war with the Mormons, who have charged that it was impossible to obtain justice from that bench. Con- gress has now interferred, and, by an amendment to the Poland bill, provided that, by writs of error. cases may be tak- en from the District Courts to the Uni- ted States Supreme Court, whenever the party accused is liable to capital punish- tnent, or convicted of polygamy or big- au ' l l y tie most important provisions stricken from the bill by the Senate are those re- lating to the rights of women to procure a dissolution of marriage and obtain ali- mony, and the disonalitications of jurors. Under the third section of the bill, Dis- Ieict Courts were empowered to grant alimony to women applying for divorce on account of the previous marriage or Pretended marriage of the defendant to another party, and to establish the mari- tal relation it was only necessary for the woman to prove cohabitation, dispensing with all record or certificate of the mar- riage. This was intended as a deadly blow against the polygamic practices of the Mormons, by offering an incentive for u ites, after the fit st marriage, to coin mence suits and obtain from their hus- band a share of his property. This clause has been stricken from the section. In the fourth section of the bill, prescribing the qualifications of jurors, it was de- clared that •‘in. the trial of any prosecu- tion for adultery, bigamy, or polygamy, it shall be a good cause of principal chal- lenge to . any juror that he practices po- lygamy, or that he believes in the right_ fulness of the same.\ Tins also was stricken out, and the clause was further amended by allowing the prosecution five and the defense fifteen peremptory chal- lenges, instead of thiee. the number orig- inally prescribed by the bill. Section seven, which applied the common law of England to the Territory, was likewise taken out Of the bill. As the law now stands, the Clerk of the District Cottrt in each district and the Probate Judge of the County, an elective officer, in which the trial is to be held, are to prepare the . jury list and alternately select a name from each as the venire. The qualifinations are a six months resi- dence in the district and ability to read and write the English language. The jurisdiction of Probate Courts is confined to the settlement of the estates of dece- dents and divorce suits, but there remains the provision that actions for divorce in Probate Courts may be removed upoo the application of either party to the Dis- trict Court. This excludes the Probate Courts from the criminal jurisdiction which they have been exercising, and which has proved a fertile cause no - the disputes which have grown up between the Federal Courts and the Courts or- ganized under the Territorial laws. Thus the main issue of polygamy is left untotrhed. The new method of OHS- ting Cannon, devised by the House Com- mittee on Territories, does not appear to have been acted upon. This was a bill defining the qualifications of delegates from Territories, and enacted that 66 no person guilty of bigamy or polygamy shall be allowed to represent any Terri- tory in Congress.\ The bill as passed is therefore a substantial victory for the Mormons, and a virtual indorsement of polygamy.—San Francisco Bulletin.
