WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS. How the Capital of O.ur Sister County is Moving on in the Way of Progress. White Sulphur Springs is improving rapidly and has now a large number of handsome and substantial buildings, both business houses and residences, several of which have been constructed in the past year. But the town will make even greater progress this year on account of the proposed improvement of the springs. If there were any "doubt ing Thoniases" in that section before, the number is few indeed now who have not implicit confidence in the future greatness of White Sulphur Springs, which is to develop, as they see it, into the great health and pleasure resort of Montana. The syndicate has already commenced the work of improvement, which is to be prosecuted under the able direction of W. T. Ford, A. WV. Sias and D)r. WVin. Parberry. They sent out orders last week for material needed, and it will not be long until the work is well under way. Meantime several other buildings will be conm...

THE POCABBET TRAGEDY.. Charles F. Freeman, Who Slew his Daugh ter as a Sacrifice, Pronounced Sane. The strangest crime of the age is at length to be brought before the courts of Massachusetts, four years after its com mission, for final judgment upon the chief actor. Charles F. Freeman, the religious fanatic of Pocasset, who, in May, 1879, slew his little daughter as a sacrifice to God, has been pronounced sane by the asylum authorities, and as there is pending against him an indict ment for murder, the form of a- trial must now be gone through with. Free man is much the same man that he was when he led the little community on Cape Cod into a fanaticism so rank and wild that he was sustained and defend ed by scores of his neighbors in the dreadful crime he committed. He, how ever, hasplost something of his arrogance, and his religious belief is entirely over turned. Indeed, he is fast tending to infidelism. He now says that he was instigated by the devil to kill his little daughter,...

OUR BARKER BUDGET. The Smelter Turning out 150 Bars of Bul lion a Day-Why the Benson Branch Should be Built at Onoe. HUGHESVILLE, M. T., April 30, '83. Editors of the RIVER Pa9Es. The mining industry of the Barker district is being worked with very satis factory results to the share owners of the Clendenin mining and smelting com pany. The blast furnace is now, and has been for the past ten days, running in full blast and is turning out from 100 to 150 bars of bullion every twenty-four hours, principally on the ores from the Silver Bell mine. Messrs. Emery & Farnum, the former the vice president of the company and the latter one of the principal share owners, both late of Chicago, are now in camp, it being their first visit to this part of Montana. The gentlemen are highly pleased with the past manage ment of the company's business here, and the only reason they have for not increasing their smelting capacity to double or treble the present is the matter 1 of cheaper transportat...

JOCKO'S VICTORY. California, Oregon and Montana Contest the Prize, and the Gallant Son of Caribo, Captures It. Our exchanges give an account of the grand performance of the Montana bred colt, Jocko, in the two and a quarter mile dash at Salt Lake. It seems that Jocko ran in the mile dash won by Joe Howell on the first day in 1:483, but was never in the race, and the Salt Lake people had come to the conclusion that he was no good. Therefore, when he was brought out to contend against the California and Oregon cracks, Fred. Collier and Ordnance, which horses had run mile heats a day or two previous in 1:461 and 1:48; (and this over a track that besides being only a half mile track is said to be 33 feet too long), he went begging in the pools, bringing only $7 against $100 for the other two. But the sports seem to have forgotten that his white stoekings flashed by the winning post ahead of Collier and several other good ones last fall in the only race he took part in on the coast, and ...
