With blizzards to right of us and
blizzards to left of us and the ther
mometers registering away below
zero in Florida we are quite comfort
able in the Hitter Root, thank you.
The passing of Pinchot in effect
has already served as a sort of bromo
seltzer for the wings of the republi
can party. No criticism, wilder the
circumstances, will hold against Pres
ident Taft on account of the dismiss
al of the chief forester—Pinchot, who
is not a politician, merely blundered.
However, the real problem still con
fronts the president Ballinger. But
that's another story.
MONTANA IS FILLING UP.
Nothing on earth, nor under the
earth, nor above, cun head off the
flood of settlers heading for Montana
lauds, says the Great Fulls Leader.
In the Great Falls land office alone
the showing for the past year was
the largest of any land office iu the
United States, there being 7,28'J
homestead tilings. And at that the
settling did not begin until late in
the year; for instance, in October
the homestead filings were 1,371; iu
November the homesteads tilings
2 , 411 , and during the blizzards and
snow of December 1,028 settlers made
In the neighborhood of 30,000 po
point ion was added last year through
the Great Falls land office alone, and
next, year it will be 00,000, so that,
perhaps the fact tlmt the publicity
appropriation was not larger does
not matter so much after all.
THE CAPITOL WINGS.
The almost unanimous concensus of
«täte press opinion is that the legis
lature did tlie right thing when it
made provision for the use oT granite
iu the construction of the capitol
The capitol commission will, on
Feb. 3, award the contract for deliv
ery of the stone. Since granue quar
ries may be developed in practically
every county iu the state, the cost of
the stone will be covered by the cost
of the labor necessary to convert
it into hui ding material. No tri
bute will be paid to a foreign stone
trust and railway freight charges will
be practically eliminated.
The capitol at Helena is surround
ed by granite hills and already Hon.
W. G. Conrad, owner of the Baxeu
dale quarry, located ten miles from
Helena, bas offered to the state the
free use of this quarry, including
saws, machinery and derricks. This
generous offer insures the use of the
best of Montana stone at the mini
The only sound criticism touching
the construction of the capitol wings
as now contemplated is that the
whole business is premature. Voicing
this sentiment the Ealispell Bee says:
If the bnildiug is to be constructed
at this time the legislature acted
; wisely iu passing the bill, but the
I interest of the state would have been
j served much better if the construc
tion of the building had been post
poned for 10 or 20 years. Thecapitol
building as it now stands is quite
large enough for present need and
j if the state's business should out
! grow the building in future, some of
j the minor departments could be
I moved into outside quarters without
the least incouvenience. With the
new issue of bonds there will be an
annual interest charge of $53,500
against the land in the capitol build
ing grant and th'S heavy charge will
eat up the grant. If the laud could
be held intact for a term of years
they would be worth at least ten mil
lion dollars and with this sum
building worthy of the state could
be constructed. Within the lifetime
of the present generation Montana
will have a population of ten million
people and then her development
will only have begun. The building
as now planed will be inadequate
when the population reaches four
A capitol building should be more
than a mere place iu which to trans
act the business of the state govern
ment. It should be emblematic of
the strength and character and sta
bility of the state and as such should
stand as an ideal to inspire patriot
ism anil civic pride in the heart of
the people For this reason the
board and the legislature acted
wisely in selecting granite, the most
enduring stone, for the construction
of the new wings.
