Choteau County at the Territorial Fair. Prominent citizens of Fort Benton and the Teton country have made ar rangements to send two commissioners to the fair at Helena to represent the county of Choteau in their productions of grains, vegetables, silver ores, iron and coal. Transportation on the Ben ton coach has been secured for the com missioners and the samples to be exhib ited. It would have been a grand idea if every county in the territory had its commissioners at the territorial fair, rep resenting their respective districts and showing. the products of their soil, ranges and mines. Now that we are to have visitors at the fair from several countries beyond the sea and from every state in the Union who will talk and write about what they ha e seen, it would be just and proper that action be taken even now to have every exhibit made that is possible. Even if they are too late for premiums they would not be too late to be viewed and criticised by the distinguished visitors who w...

A RAILROAD FOR BENTON. A Company Organized to Construct a Road From Helena to this City. An Organization Already Effected and the Bulk of the Stock Taken. [Independent.)] It has been known to some of our citi zens for several days that parties were in the city looking over our situation and resources with the view of deter mining upon the advisability of con structing a railroad from here to Fort Benton. It is now understood that such an undertaking has' been determined upon and that the company is to be forthwith organized aid the work pro ceeded with. A portion of the stock, it is stated, will be offered to some of our own people, but it is probable that the bulk of it has already been taken by a syndicate representing large railroad corporations-though whether the Can adian Pacific, the Union Pacific, or some other road, we are not advised. Two gentlemen, however, prominently iden tified with the enterprise have recently visited Helena and are much impressed with the prosperous a...

A MINING EXPOSITION IN THE NA TIONAL PARK. The mining exposition at Denver is at last one of the things of the past. This, without doubt, has been the grandest fraud of the year 1883. Our western territories and states seem to be the principal victims. They went to great ex inse and trouble to give their mineral wealth a good showing and the only perceptible result was the notoriety gained through a lawsuit with the ex position managers.

"The time will come when you will sigh, 'had I but only known What I do now, the good, old farm, with all its hills and stone, Would not have driven me away to find, when hope is dead, That Fame does not bestow her wreath on any sort of head.'
