Two ye founded
the Great Falls TRIBUNE, this city had
few people and was little known. H
Able men with capital and enterprise S
had discerned its adaptability for
commerce and industry, but the con- th
struction of the Manitoba extension,
the Montana Central and the branch e f
lines to Rimini and Marysville, were id
still remote possibilities. The coun- D+
try at large was still suffering from Fi
commercial depression, and the lead
ing Montana interests were more or
less affected thereby.
Now all is changed. Valiant men, Ti
such as Mr. Paris Gibson and his as- TI
sociates,have attracted here merchants St
and manufacturers, who have built tfr
mills, established banks, and, -in a
word, founded a city, which is peerless ra
in its location and embodies all the t
improvements that experience sug- ha
gests in the building and adornment sil
of large towns. The graded track of
the Montana Centralis already at our
doors, and the Manitoba is advancing
toward us at the rate of nearly five ati
miles a day. The city has become an
the mart for a vast, prosperous region Tr
and is in a fair way to attain soon the
growth of Kansas City-that other dri
phenomenal city on the Missouri. sBI
It is under, such bijght auspices in
that we launch the SEMI-WEEKLY
TamIBqE We shall make no #prom- I
ises, but let it speak for itself. We hoi
trust, at least, that it will beeof service the
to this city and territory and merit Oah
the support of those to whom the suc
cess of the WEEKLY TRIBUNE is due.
WOOL-GROWER UNITING. To'
Union, was the watchword of -the
delegates who assembled-lafely at St. '
L.nstoo discuss the wool ,interests of Nei
the country. They urge wool-growers nie
and manufacturers to unite in seaur- gee
ing the proper, enforcement of the
tar:: t laws They also recommend
wiol-producers to be vigilant in pro- gro
meoingt;m nomination of candidates teo
who will t by. them in congress
reomm entded thatdegations be sent at t
toW Washinton to makek;n~ knw h
needew The ½vool industry, and ad- 1
ruied bi he iassoeitibn repre- a
Bented by nsep in all of the U ni : ea
ujrta and treasury depart
The convention likewise advised
wool-producers to unite in demanding
from the railroads proper freight
classification of wools in transit, and
urged producers to protest against
any discrimination in railroad rates
against Texas and Colorado in order
to favor California.
The proceedings bear the impress
0 of earnestness and good judgement.
r The resolutions are intended to unite
wool-growers in defense of their com
mon interests, regardless of party or
locality. The advice which they give
d is timely and practical. The magni
tude of the wool industry warrants
t such vigilance. In union is strength.
THE MA)L4ITOfDA SYSTEff.
The Manitoba system, which is now
being extened into Montana, holds
the first rank among the great rail
road groups of the United'States. It
has promoted the development of the
Red River valley and Dakota by pro
viding settlers with means of reach
ing the wheat markets of Minneapolis
and Duluth. Of the 50,000,000 bushel
of wheat sent to these cities, a large
part is carried by the Manitoba rail
road. It operates 1,756 miles of track,
t irrespective of the 541 which are now
t being built from Minot to Great Falls.
It holds land grants from Minnesota
but none from the general govern
ment. It controls the union terminal
facilities in St. Paul and Minneapolis,
and has a short line which does im
mense business between the two cities.
- The financial credit of the company
is high, because its net earnings are
large, while its fixed charges are
light. Its affairs are conducted with
success by President Hill and his ef
ficient staff, which iticludes some of
the ablest railroad men in the country.
It is gratifying that this great pro
gressive system and its connecting
lines will traverse Montana from the c
boundary at Fort Buford to the rich p
mining camp at Butte. In its track a
will follow population and prosperity.
