E.G.Dannell, the correspondent of t lie^New York Times, whose letter on NM^was published in Tn^ Independent last^Sunday, seems not only to UaTe looked the^eitiea over with a oritioal eye, hot likewise^the country. In a letter under date of Bil^^lings, he thns touches on the irrigation^quest ion:
Gowhere you may in the west, within a^tract bounded on the east by the western^boundary of Minnesota, on the north l^v^the international boundary liue,ou the west^by the Kooky mountains, and on the south^by the line of the Union Pacific railroad, the^burden of the agriculturists' speech is a^prayer for irrigation. The farmers in some^partH of the large area indicated have not^all been equally unfortunate this year.^Many of them have been sadly, perhaps^fatally, injured for two or three years by^drought, blight, or by both excessive cold^and scorching heat during one crop season.^Against the dangers to In) feared from un^^usual cold thev can protect themselves ami^their stock. Onlv to a small proportion .if^the millions of farmers is rt at pr. s. nl ptvfr^ticable to guard against a rainless season ^^l^six or term months, .luring wkiok the hot
southwinds will blow for a few dm^with such f.inrot as to kill the gram in^blossom. W iving MM uimiii acres of it to^wave mockingly in the face of the farmer,^who has pssdfjsd his land mid his home and
^enhis pi'^s and his hens to the iley-

Tarts of the northwest, In Wssh-^uigtoa, in Oregon, ami beyond Helena, m^the Teton and Milk river valleys, claim ex^emption from tlie ilioii^lil thai has now for^several years come with horrible regularity^to discourage and ruin luiiny of the Dakota^farmers. Whither tiny will ba ^bis i'i^raise cereals up ill the bench lali.ls from^^Web they have riapcil them this \iar. an,I^to do it season after season w it limit irriga^^tion, remains to be proved. They believe
thattli. v can. lii the rietoHj of Ohiik,
farto the east of Helena, and almost due^north of Killings, wiicut ami oat , have been^raised tins season, and very satisfactorily.^But there was rain latsf at OUaook thim^there was here. The winter was milder.^There was more snow.
BUilnasattracteddmbj tat information.
obtainedat Helena, that a good example M^the advantages and complete success of irri^^gation could he found here. It would not^be likelv to attract a vsitor who was look^^ing for towns full of push and drive. There^is a great deal more of it thuti there wa^ m^IHKI. At that time, when the writer stooped^to look lit it. there was little here cxc. pl^three or four saloons, a store or two, a few^unpauitcd bouses and u premature strict^oar line that began in the prairie at one end^of the town and ended in the prairie at the^opiMsite end. There is nothing left of the^streetcar line now but the cars, wr.ek.it^uimn the bank of the Yellowstone, where^they were beached veals ago. The rails^MM torn up aud taken away to start^another town. The saloons are outnum^^bered now by the brick and stone buildings,^some of whieh are neat ami siihstantml. As^usual in western towns, the bank is the liesl^building in the place. That building of one^kind has been pushed beyond the needs of^Killings is plum There are many vacant^Stores, which have been occupied. There Is
not,however, a sutlieieiit number of dwell^^ings for the pipul.itioii. for a man who had^lieeu trying to rent on. told DM that he was^compelled to occupy I second story over a^store, or else give nji t rying to get a tene^^ment.
WhenKillings was started, and at the^time that it was expected to decline a great^town, Mi. Heman Clark was ^in it^ pretty^deep. It is common to hear people in Bill^nigs denounce Mr. Clark. He KM] DSOfltl^Vied to very severe c. nsiire, but whatever^us purjxist was he did one thing for the

water,perhaps in the prism. 1 hrough this^it ran until diverted bv gates set to swing it^across the heads of fields of different areas.^By setting up canvas aprons in the lesser^ditches the water was rawed alsivc the Iciel^of the field, and then it flowed across he^field toward the distant river soloug a^'he^overflow was maintained. When tHere^were variations from grade the difficulty^would l^e overcome bv carrying the water^to a new point of distribution in a ditch^at a higher level. As the Yellowstone never^falls, the sunplv of water has always ls*n^abundant. The river is tapped too far from^the mountains to exp.se it to anv danger^from spring freshets, of which there has^been none since the ditch was built. I lie^warm weather of spring ooiues earlier^nearer to the headwaters than it doe* near^Killings, aud it approaches slowly.
Asthe first example of what a (inline that^was five years ago an uncertain grar.ing^land will do under irrigation a field of corn^was shown. It was a pretty sight to see.^There were many acres of it. standing uni^^formly alsiut six feet in the stalk, strong,^full-leaved, and singing in the breeze with^a mighty rustle. The ears were large and^fat. None of it had lwen nipped by the^frost that had a week earlier cut d^wn^everything in the liottorns nearest the river.^The cutters were at work aud wagons were^carting the harvest away. This corn had^met with no set back from the moment it^was planted. Theearlv rains of the sum^mer had given it all the start it needed.^After the last drop of rain had fallen, early^in Julv. the field had lieeti furrowed with a
Slow,the canvas aprons set across the little^itch at one end of the cornfield, the water^was let in. raised to a proper level, and then^sent coursing down the furrows to the south^side of the planted area. The roots were^not flooded. A little rivulet ran MtWMl^each row of lulls, and seepage did the rest.^The same course was followed in irrigating^the potaUKW. These had flourished as well^as the corn, and the pnaluct was as flue a^crop as ever gladdened a fanner's eyes.
Keyondthe corn field was what appeared,^at a short distance, to la- a beautiful lawn,^waving in vivid greenness in the brilliant^afternoon sun. It was a field of fifty acres^of alfalfa, ready for the mower. It was^alsiut ten inches' high, apparently, all over^the field, and a rainstorm a night or two^before had lient it a little. This field was^one of winch the proprietor was very proud.^When lie began to cultivate the tract he^planted this tiftv acre lot with alfalfa seed.^He h not dropped a seed on it since. 'The^spring rain brings it along early. He cuts^it. turns on the water from the ditch so as^to flood the whole tract, and in alsiut a^in.mill the second crop is ready for the^linoM i. A second flooding; is sufficient to^bring along the third crop. From this lifty-^acre field Mr. Stuart has taken during the^season just ended :XK) tons of hay. Hay is^scarce and high in Montana. He considers^it worth if H a ton. loose. He has one stack^of hav from this field that is 4UI feet long^and 1'.' or 1ft feet high by L1^ feet thick.^It is not his purjHise to sill it. Ke-^^MM being a farmer he is u sheep^raiser. Having tried the experiment of^fee hug his sheep one winter oil alfalfa hay,^be discovered that they remained in as gisid^condition during the winter as thev had^been in summer on the range, and he has no^doubt that the quality of their wool was im^proved. Not only did he secure a gissl clip^of wool h^ taking care of his hI.h'K, but he^had a ^corner^ on mutton, and could sell^sheep to all the neighboring consumers at^alsiut double the prices that were obtained^for the skin and bones of annuals I hat had^U-en compelled to pickups living on the^ranges
Thecalculation of this irrigating farmer^was that his alfalfa hail not only paid for^the water taken from the ditch, but that it^would be more valuable tor him to retain^to put into wool and mutton dur' ig the^winter than it would to sell it for *^,^^^' and^buy hay. The fifty acre lot had given three^crops .if six tons to the acre. He had not^planted much grain, but Ins wheat had re^^turned forty bushels of bard wheat. Ins oats^had turned out bountifully and he had a^crop of corn that could not be beaten in^northern Ohio. Mr. Shuart had also raised^some ha^ from the native blue-joint prai^rie. He was not satisfied with that experi^^ment. It had licen his experience that the^blue joint needs more irrigation than al^^falfa, that it deteriorates from year to year^in spite of irrigation, and that tIn^product at best is not so satisfactory as al-^talfa. of which the stock of nil kinds up^pear to be ravenously fond. The hogs eat^it voraciously and horses prefer it to any^ot her feed. It In not only vividly green in^the field: it retain- a |00d deal of its bright^^ness win ii cured, ami you only have to tear^off a few sunburned wisps from the outside^of the staek to find the liny beneath it^i i|ii.illy dry. but of a very distinctly green^hue.
Withsmall fruits, squashes, melons, Mr.^Stuart has had equal success. He is con^^vinced, absolutely, of the advantages of ir^^rigation over an uncertain rain supply. He^declares that he would not now willingly^exaliaiige his farm in a region in which^rain diss not fall from July to October, for^one where the rainfall comes to embarrass^the farmer after the harvesting season sets^in. As he is now situated, when the last^shower has fallen m June or July, if he^wants water, he can have it, when or where^he ph ases. After he has begun to harvest^he has no fear of interruption. The^sun shines every day, tho crops are^sisiii dry. there is no intcrrii|^tioii of^the work of gathering them. When^he hears expressions of sympathy with the^Montana farmer, caused by drought, he^I. ^ i- like offering his condolences to the^eastern farmer who has lost Ins crop by^rust or a protracted storm that came after^the reaper had been at work. As for the^winters, he says they ale not so severe as^represented nor so long. His ex|icriencc^has b#M that plowing could lie done at all^ton. s. except for about ninety days between^fall aud April. He Inqs's to have MM^neighbors by and by. 'The land is not yet^taki n up, and there are acres and acres of^it that can be irrigated from the same ditch^that he uses and with results equally as^satisfactory. The main reason for winch^he abandoned the ministry was prostration,^inability to sleep or do church work. The^return to farming, the occupation to which^he had Im i ii accustomed in boyhisid, was^the beginning of a recovery of health, and^he now ap|h'ars to la' a man of vigor and^strength.
Wheneveryou talk with farmers in the far^west you hear references to the senate com^^mittee on irrigation, that has been travel^^ing all over the arid and sub-arid region,^talking irrigation and silver with about^equal earnestness. It is not easy to find out^how the impression got abroad, but Sen^ators Stewart and Iteagancaii probably tell,^that the next session of congress is to irri^^gate the desert lauds of the country, and at^the same time is to give to the silver pro-^diners the inestimable ^boon-1 of free^coinage of silver. There d.s-s not a pp. o to^have been any log-rolling scheme minutely^planned, but a great many farmers have^come to believe that the price of IiIhtiiI a|e^propriations for experimental wells and res^^ervoirs and ditches for irrigation will be
theremoval of the limit ot ^!' as
Hintto which the treasury may go monthly^in coining silver dollars. Some of the farm^^ers, who have not yet irrigated, and wIn. are^not altogether lacking in humor in their^adversity, suggest that it would Is- as easy,^under the Stcwurt-Kegan plan, to irtig.ite^with molten silver as it would to under^^take to get water enough to cisil off their^craze.
Whenthe area reclaimable by the Clark^ditch has been put uuder cultivation, and^the Northern Pacific couqiaiiy has built the^railroad that it intends to run from Killings^across central Montana to Fort Kenton,^ojsiiing up the Magiunis mining country,^with its treasures of gold and silver, and^the agricultural and csil regions of the .In^dith basin, aud bidding for a shin . of the^st.s-k transportation which tn. Manitoba is^now moiiopoliziug.Klllingswill have tenants^for all its empty stores, and will need more^stores for more merchants. Its business is^now a great deal better than it hsiks. The^opening of the railroad to the Ited Ijidge^coal mines, at the south, baa made a differ-^i ace to it. When the road is extended to^Cooke City and its silver mines it may rea^^sonably look for a ^boom.

The affidavit also asked the appoint^ment of others to act instead of the sheriff^and In- deputies. On convening court this^afternoon the application waa granted and^L. M. Cantrell and John L.

SpokaneFalls is situated in the Palouse^country and ia the distributing oeuter for a^section of the Northwest, the resource* of^Wbiell are unlimited. As an illustration^B0,000 bushels of w heat have been raised^from IfiOO acres of land. Another feature^of the country greatly conducive to the^raising of crops, is the rainless harvest*, no^rain falling while the crops are being har^^vested.
