MIners and Prospectors Going to the Hills in Numbers-Northern Choteau County in a State of Ex citement Over the Report. From time to time rumors have reached this city of the discovery of placer mines in Choteau county but as it was supposed they were on the Indian reservation there was ýan indisposition on the part of many to go there. Late news was to th.- effect that the few men who had located there had been driven out but a new movement in that direction has been made. About a week ago Messrs. Lelande & Ayotte re ccived a letter from their friend and part ner, J. V. Supernant, dated Fort Conrad, lKipp's place, Marias, Choteau county, in which he says: "Come, I have a prospect, and get here as quick as you can. T)on't forget to bring along my tw...

II R Vol. THE RIER PRESS. Vol. V. Fort Benton, Montana, Wednesday, August 19, 1885. No. 43. THE SWEET GRASS HILLS. Fred. Derwent Arrives in the City TWith Nearly $800 in Glittering Dust. Fred. Derwent, one of the pioneers in the Sweet Grass hills, arrived last Friday bringing with him forty-three ounces of gold, which we learn was sold to the First National Bank of this city for $18.50 per ounce, which will make the amount brought in $795.50. This is the largest amount yet received from that section and confirms the reports as to the richness of the diggings. Mr. Derwent is very reti cent in talking about it, as he does not wish to create a stampede until the ground is more thoroughly prospected. Jog. Su prenant has sent such glowing reports to Butte that there has been a genuine stam pede from that city. Numbers of miners are arriving every day. The indications are that the diggings are more extensive and richer even than Little Alder, in the Little Rockies. The Sweet Grass gold th...

TkEE SWEET GBAbd HILLS. Cntinued Good Reports as to the Rich. ness of the Diggings. We were shown to-day a private letter received from a gentleman now in the Sweet Grass hills, confirming the previous good reports which have been received from that section. The letter states that the writer had struck it rich, having ground from which he had panned out as high as five dollars to the pan on bed-rock; that he had in his claim pay dirt which yields eight cents to the pan. We have learned from other sources that water is scarce in the diggings, but Milk river is only nine miles away, and they can make two trips a day with a team and net $40 to the load. We have talked with an old miner who is of the opinion that the best dig gings found for many years will be in the Sweet Grass hills. The letter above men tioned has been shown to several parties and has created a genuine excitement, and within a few days several people will leave t,,o for the diggings. It would seem that new discoverie...

When it had been decided that the interment, of the remains of General Grant should be a national concern, the secretary of war designated General Hancock to di rect the obsequies.

The Reported Sale of the St. Julian Mine and 850 Feet of the Montana Bell Confirmed. The following words were contained in a private letter received from Neihart bearing date of August 14th: "Col. Broadwater came in to-day. From what I can learn he has bought the St. Julian mine and is hiring men to put to work." The writer of the letter is well known in this vicinity, and what lie says can be re lied upon. This statement came unex pectedly. Rumors had been current for some time past that the syndicate had about concluded not to take the property. Their stopping work, closing the mine and discharging the men employed by them led the people to think the rumors were well founded. We are glad, how ever, to chronicle the fact that the mine has been purchased and the work will go on. This will put life and activity into the camp, and those people who were de spondent at...
