CACHE COUNTY. <br><br> Cache County was organized on the 4th of April, 1857?, with the following boundaries: All that portion of Utah Territory bounded south by Morgan, Weber and Box Elder Counties, west by Box Elder County, north by latitude forty-two degrees north, and east by the summit of the Ridge mountains, between Cache and Bear Lake Valleys. <br><br> The government of the County is vested in the County Court, composed of the Probate Judge, who is ex officio the presiding officer, and three selectmen who hold office for three years, one being chosen every year. Regular terms begin on the first Monday in each season of the year. The judiciary power is vested in the Probate Court, presided over by the Probate Judge, who is elected biennially and holds his office for two years. This court is always open. The Clerk of the Court is appointed by the Judge, and is ex oficio County Clerk. Elections are held biennually, on the first Monday in August, in each even numbered year.

Logan City was incorporated by an act of the Territorial Legislature, approved Jan. 27, 1865?, and it embraces all that portion of Cache County contained within the following boundaries to wit: Commencing at the south? Bank of the Logan River, at the mouth of Logan Canyon, thence in a northerly direction along the base of the mountains three miles, thence west to the Logan and Hyde Park Canal, thence southerly along said Canal to a point where the Hyde Park ditch is taken out of said Canal, thence west on the line of said ditch in the south-east corner of the north half of the southwest quarter of section fourteen, township twelve north, range one west thence west one half mile, thence north one fourth mile, thence west to the west bank of Little Bear River, thence south along the bank to the mouth of Logan River, thence in an easterly direction along the bank of said river to the place of beginning. <br><br> Its location is the best that could have been chosen in northern Utah for a large city, with numerous commercial interests and manufacturing establishments. Ample water power for any number of mills in furnished by Logan River, with its branches, which flows directly through the city. Being situated at the foot of a grand range of mountains, and being the center of a number of pretty villages it presents a beautiful appearance. The Utah and Northern Railroad passes through the valley on the west side of the city. <br><br> Municipal elections occur biennially (even years) on the first Monday of March. The city is divided into five municipal wards, each of which is represented in the common council by any Alderman chosen from the ward by the electors of the city at large, which latter also choose at the same time, a complete list of city officials being at present as follows: <br><br> Logan City officers. Mayor - W. H. Preston Aldermen - T. X. Smith, M. Thatcher, Wm. [William] Hyde, T. K. Cranney, C. O. Card. Councilors - J. H. Martineau, H. Ballard, E. Davidson, C. D. Fjeldsted, B.

Open to development Along the Utah Northern Railway. No section of the Union at present offers greater inducements to the mining prospector, farmer, stock-raiser, capitalist of laborer than the vast region north of Ogden penetrated by the Utah and Northern Railway, now over 300 miles long. This line traverses the most extensive and fertile valleys of Northern Utah, it crosses the great Snake river gold fields and the best grazing lands of Idaho, has rendered easy of access the Salmon river Yankee Fork and Caribou mining region and has entered the Territory of Montana. <br><br> IDAHO TERRITORY. THE UTAH & NORTHERN railway, as noted above, crosses Eastern Idaho, every mile of which is valuable either for its pasturage, its agricultural, timber or mineral lands. Idaho is called the "Gem of the Mountains," on account of its great diversity of resources, its mild and healthful climate, its wonderful mineral springs and its fine scenery. It is 400 miles long by 800 wide, contains some 20,000 inhabitants, and its mines have yielded $65,000,000. Wide areas of grazing lands sustain cattle, horses and sheep, winter and summer, while the valleys produce all cereals and vegetables, of the temperate zone, besides apples, pears, grapes, peaches, plums, apricots and other fruits. Good roads lead to different parts of Idaho from stations on the Utah & Northern Railway. SNAKE RIVER GOLD FIELDS. IT IS NOW demonstrated beyond a doubt that hundreds of miles of gravel bars along Snake River, Eastern Idaho - some of which are directly on the line of the Utah and Northern Railway - are rich in deposits of fine gold. Several companies operating in 1879, took out from $30 to $40 per day to the man. Their large and regular shipments of dust to San Francisco have created great excitement in mining circles, and Western journals already pronounce these the most extensive placer silver diggings in the world as "good prospects" of gold are found all along the river for a distance of 400 miles. Outfitting can be done at Eagle Rock, on the Utah & Northern Railway, and within an hour's walk of some of these great bars. Now is the time to strike for fortune in this vast new region, which will soon be overrun by miners from every State and Territory. <br><br> SALMON RIVER MINES. FULLY 150 MILES distant from Eagle Rock, by Gilmer & Salisbury stage route, or the Yankee Fork mines 175 miles from Black Foot by the Terminus and Chalis stage line, are also attracting great attention for the unexampled richness of their gold and silver quartz. The region covers an area of 10,000 square miles, and although only partially explored, already promises to rival the best mining region in the world. Mining experts unite in pronouncing the Yankee Fork lodes the richest yet discovered west of the Rockies. Hundreds of tons of ore, worth from $500 to $2,000 per ton, have been packed on mules and shipped to the Salt Lake Smelting Works. Salmon City, Chalis [Challis], Bonanza City, are leading towns. Distance from Eagle Rock to Salmon City, 150 miles, fare $37. Distance from Black Foot to Chalis, 175 miles, fare $25. Fare from Omaha to either Chalis [Challils] or Salmon City, first class, $100; second class, $75. The only route from the East to the Snake and Salmon River Mining regions is via the Union Pacific and Utah & Northern Railroads. <br><br> MONTANA. MONTANA'S GOLD AND SILVER mines now almost in sight of the Utah & Northern Railway, have yielded $150,000,000, and the annual yield since 1864 has averaged $8,500,000. Over 20,000 lodes and 2,000 placer mines have been recorded. Alder Gulch, in which Virginia City is located, has alone poured out $40,000,000 in glittering dust. Iron, lead, coal, copper and cinnabar are also plentiful. <br><br> Nearly 40,000,000 acres of pastoral and 10,000,000 acres of agricultural lands are found on this grand domain, not one-sixth of which is claimed or occupied. The native beach grass is a winter and summer feed equal to oats. Cattle, horses and sheep keep fat the year round in the open air. Profits in the cattle or sheep business have always averaged from two to three per cent per month on all capital invested. Losses of cattle, sheep or horses on the range, from all causes, rarely reach and never exceed two per cent per annum. Wheat, oats, rye, barley, and all hardy vegetables are produced in great abundance and of quality unexcelled. Apples, pears, plums, grapes, Siberian crabs, and nearly all small fruits are produced in different localities. Yellow and white pine, spruce, cedar, marble, granite, lime-stone and sandstone are abundant. <br><br> Montana boasts a dozen rivers as large and beautiful as the Mohawk or Juanita -- three of which are navigable -- and being beautifully watered by hundreds of ice-cold streams and crystal lakes, water power is therefore illimitable. All streams are full of trout and other fish; the elk, deer, antelope, moose, bear, mountain sheep and many kinds of small game abound. Numerous hot mineral springs, and a mild, invigorating atmosphere are among the attractions for health-seekers. Wages in Montana are double those paid in Illinois. Churches, schools, libraries and good daily and weekly newspapers are more numerous than in sections of similar populations East. There is daily mail and express and the telegraph to all important points. <br><br> The shortest, quickest, best and only reliable summer and winter route in Montana is that via the Union Pacific and Utah and Northern Railways. <br><br> VALUABLE INFORMATION FREE.
