HAUSER, SAMUEL T.
SAMUEL T. HAUSER, banker and miner, Helena, Mont., originated in Falmouth, Pendleton county, Ky., Jan. 10, 1833. Educated as a civil engineer, he found his first employment, in 1854, on The Missouri Pacific Railway, but several years later followed the throng of emigrants to the Northwest, and, in 1862, prospected the upper waters of the Missouri river as far as Fort Benton and the upper waters of the Columbia river. In the Fall, he came East as far as the Bannock mines, and spent some time in mining in that regions, and, in 1863, prospected along the route of the Lewis and Clarke expedition as far as the Yellowstone valley. Having accumulated sufficient means, Mr. Hauser opened a bank in Virginia City, Mont., in 1865, in partnership with N.P.Langford, and has since been closely identified with the business interest of that region. The pioneer smelting works of Montana were built by him in 1865, as well as the first silver mill in the Territory. Montana was cursed in the early days by lawless and reckless men, whose crimes finally led the active members of this committee, and by skillful, energetic and courageous management, the ruffians who had terrorized the Territory were punished or driven off, without the loss of a single member of the committee. In 1866, Mr. Hauser organized The First National Bank of Helena, which city has since been his home, and The St. Louis Mining Co., of Phillipsburg, now know as that he and his vigor and ability were recognized, in 1866, by appointment as Territorial Governor for two years. He organized The First National Banks of Missoula, Butte and Benton, and is large stockholder in each, although unable to serve them as president. Several branch railroads in Montana, now united as The Northern Pacific & Montana, were build by him under contract. The Helena & Livingston Smelting & Reduction Co., of which he is president, was organized by him. Mr. Hauser has also borne a part in the development of the real estate interest of Helena and other cities. He is a Democrat in political faith, and one of the managers of the party.

Because of it, the mine, mill and camp enjoyed its peak years of prosperity through the rest of the 1880s. With Hauser's acquisition of the mine and mill and the arrival of the railroad, the community of Wickes flourished. It transformed from a sober alcohol-free community to a "rip-roaring" mining camp that extended 1 1/2 miles along the gulch. The camp had between 900 to 1500 residents and included five dance halls, 22 saloons, a general store, post office, two hotels, at least one meat market, a blacksmith shop and a Presbyterian church.
