Railroad and Land Development;
Extensive Incorporations in Montana
IJEI.F.XA, Mont., May 3. St. Paul, Chi
cago and Helena capitalists have Just
completed the Initial steps in an under
taking which from a financial stand
point, bids fair to stand unrivaled for
many yoars to come, this being none
other tluin a Joint realty-railroad deal,
which means the development of a sec
tion of Montana heretofore handicapped
seriously through lack of transportation
facilities. The leading spirits In the deal
nre R. M. Calkins or St. Paul, son of the
general manager of the. Chicago. Mil
waukee fc Puget Sound line; John Ring
ling, the Chicago circus man. and Lewis
Pcnwell of Helena, known as the wool
king of the sUit rrorn the fac! that his
companies are the civatest wool producers
of thu greatest wool state In the union.
Quietly, the right of way for the rail
road has been purchased which will give
White Sulphur Springs. th seat of
Meagher county, direct connection with
Chicago, Milwaukee & Puget Sound line
at Dorscy while the complete railroad
plans call for an elension of the line to
Helena from White Sulphur Springs
and from Dorscy through the Smith river
valley. to a connection with the Northern
Pacific at Livingston, which would give
the St. Paul a Yellowstone Park entrance
through the Livingston gateway.
Tho work will be done through the
Smith River Development company, In
corporated here last week with n. capital
stock of 51.000.000. and In which Mr. Pen
well Is the leading sptrlr, together with
another corporation In which Mr. Rlng
Ung and Mr Calkins are to be Hie chief
stockholders. This latter will have ditect
charge of tho railroad work. Penwell will
huvculhe minority railioad holdlnirs, while
Calkins and Rjngiing will have the lessor
realty Interest, but tho two concerns are.
In essence one.
Already, the Conrad-Etanford holdings
at the town of Whrllo Sulphur Springs
have been purchased, the price being
?200,000. Included are the pprings them
selves, a hotel and S00 building lots. Ring
ling Is the chief interest in this purchase,
the sale halng been m:nl by the Helena
firm this week. It Is the intention of the
nw owners to make icsprinps not only
the largest, but the best known watering
plnre in tho en I ire northwest. Before tak
ing over the property, the new company
engaged several European specialists and
sent them to While Sulphur Springs to
examine the waters, determine the maxi
mum flow of the hot springs and analyze
the waters. Their report was unanimous
that the opening for a modern American
Spa. was at hand the water being of
grat temperature and possessing marked
medicinal properties. The remodeling of
the springs by the erection of a magni
ficent natatorlum and private baths and
swimming pools Is to begin at once, while
actual construction Is to start on the rail
road within a short time.
East or TJorsey and far Into Park coun
ty, the development company lias pur
cliased several hundred thousand acre?
of land, which Is to bo cut Into smaller
parcels and colonized after the so-colled
Ponwell method.' This marks the end of
not a few well known cattle and sheep
ranches or central Montana, and the same
system will be followed respecting tho
land holdings of the company In Meagh
er county, which, while one of thn oldest
Inhabited sections of the state, has been
slilously hampered by lack of transporta
tion facilities. This for more than a quar
ter of a century has consisted of a stage
line to Helena nnd in more recent years,
one ti Dorsoy, as well. White Sulphur
Is revenly-three miles from Helena. Tills
stage line Is eventually to be replaced by

an extension of the railroad line, the grade
for which 1b already completed from Hel
ena to the Missouri river, this hiwlng
been tltr original route of what Ik known
as the Montana section of the Chicago,
Milwaukee & Puget Sound !'ne.
The building or the railroad and the
establishment or a magnificent tourist
hotel will unquestionably have the effect
of making White Sulphur Springs one of
the most famous health resorts In the
northwest, situated as It Is most pictur
esquclv In the heart of the Little Bdt
mountains. Though practically unknown
to the world in general, the White Sul
phur Springs baths and tho medicinal
waters from the springs have the reputa
tion among Montana specialists and medi
cal fraternity In general ns possessing
curative powers most singular to them
selves. Carlsbad, Hot Springs and West
Baden not being excepted. Even today
the waters of White Sulphur Springs are
bottled and shipped to an exclusive clien
tele in Xew York and other eastern cities.
From a scenic standpoint, the springs are
moat happily slluatod. From the veran
das of the present hotel, a. commanding
view for mliesi of the wooded mountains
and green valleys are vlslhlc. and In ad
dition. It is tho only point on the coast
extension of the St. Paul which can be sc
properlv featured as a genuine health re
sort. "The mountain streams nearby
abound In fine trout llshlng.
Smith river valley Is about sixty miles
long and from ton to thirty mile wide
nnd Is one of the most productive sec- .
tions of the. state. Hampered, 'however,
by lack of transportation, its land values
have remained unchanged while in the
romalnder of the atatc they havo advanced
by leaps and bounds. Now that a fall
road I? assured and IL5 products made
available to market, those lands are also
expected to share In tho general advance.
In this connection it may not be Inap
propriate to give h brief sketch of Mr.
Penwell. the originator of the Ida. A
Montana-born man. he attended school
and finally was admitted to the practice
! of law. Ten or twelve years ago he was
a candidate for county attorney of this
countv and was defeated. Shortly after
ward. S. S. 1-Iuiitlc-j of this city died and
Mr. Penwell undertook In dispose of his
large 'land and sheep holdings Cor lhe
widow. He formed a company for this
purpose, nnd the splendid dividends It
paid induced him to lake ijvcr still another
large ranch under the same conditions.
This also paid regular and splendid divi
dends, and he embarked solely In that
business. Up to this time, eleven com
panies have been organized to takj over
livestock ranches, and while nearly half
of them have been forced out of bnel
noss because of t lie- rapid advance In land
values it having been discovered that
wheat and other grains would grow where
formerly only snoop and c.ttie grazed
the stockholders in every case received
not only dividends of from 12 to 25 per
cent a year, but 50 per cent premium 011
their capital slock as well. Thesp ranches
are today the largest ttooI producers of
Use stale, new ones having taken thy
places of those compelled to disband be
caUHe of tiio advance of the plow. The
la?t four companies organised nave met
with over-subscriptions of stock, includ
ing one property which gives PenwelJ
and associates a body of land extending
from Helena to Three Forks In Gallntln
county. Penwell was born in White Sul
phur Springs and he declares the con
struction of tho railroad, tho rehabilita
tion of his birthplace and the upbuilding
of Meagher county, to be his lifo ambition.

Not the Comet
Editor Tribune: It seems that every
body with a trifle of "get-up" about
him. rises at Z: 15 a. m. to take a peep
at Hnllcy's comet, and make a little
statement to his neighbors that he saw
the "comet."' Now the fact Is that It is
tho planet Venus that he In interview
ing, which rises above our east moun
tains about that time, and It is very
bright and beautiful. 11 Is very doubtful
that nnvone has seen Unlley's comet at
this tlmo without a telescope.
An Illustration of Hallcy's comet as
given in the Sclentitic American and m
many other papers slvows what they
claim Is the tail of Ilalley's comet, which
stands out In opposition to the snin. Iv.o
matter where, it Is located In its orbit.
N'ow the fact is. If 7 alley's comet has si
tail, as 1 believe It has. It would be on
a lino parallel with its orbit or In a
close tiingent thereto. What Is pur
ported to be tho tall Is only the shadow
of the comet on the otherlal matter
about it as all shadows arc obstructed
sun or other light and always in oppo
sition to tho light.
If you will take the trouble to examine
tills matter. I think It will satisfy you Ml nil'
that the Idea Is correct. 311 jjfl
