CLENDENIN, M. T., March 17, 1884. Editors of the River Press: The blast furnace of the eý4enin Mining and Smelting comyfr stwarted up on the 6th inst., and up to date has turned out an average of 200 bars of bul lion daily. With the present condition of the ore, which improves in its rich ness in silver and is more easily smelt ed, the managers expect to turn out hereafter at least 225 bars of bullion'per day.

They will keep run ning until about the 1st of April, when they will have to shut down for a phort time, until they can get ahead with the coal supply. Their coal, which is burn ed in brick kilns, is limited to some fifteen or twenty thousand bushels per month, and the blast furnace when at work consumes as much as 1,000 bushels per day. The Silver Belle mine is worked un der the able management of T. D. McCar...

STOCK DEPARTMENT.S [Contributions for this page respectfully soitedt from stockmen and others.] THE ALIEN RANCH COMPANIES. A Growing Evil That Menaces American Agriculturists and Stock Growers. The newspapers don't understand the nature of the investments made by aliens in the west else they are too timid to exercise their proper 'function in di recting attention to what will prove a great calamity. The British in particular are making investments in this country upon a scale that bodes no good to the laboring popu lation. The land troubles'at home have been the chief reasons for directing their attention to the United Statqs as a new field for plunder. The impetus-given to the ranching business by the large purchases made by English syndicates were at first pleasing to a class of stock men who view things only superficially. It is now evident to the most stupid that if such.- purchases aretlonger continued the foreigners will practically "corral"'' the greater part of the most remu...

In no other part of the United States is the live stock industry so closely iden tified with the interests of all the people as in Montana. The eyil of having vast grazing areas enc!osed by cattle compa nies does not exist, nor have titled noo dles and foreign syndicates yet acquired a grip upon our lands and herds. In particular the ranges of northern Mon tana are occupied by a multitude of resident cattle owners, nine-tenths of whom are engaged in cattle raising as an auxiliary to farming and other pur suits. The great majority of these own no more land than the 160 acres that is their home. With a few exceptions LAND SPECULATORS are the only persons who have availed themselves of the privilege of placing scrip and locating desert claims. In fact the stockmen are so apathetic that they are not exercising c...
