SATURIDAY. FEBIIUARY 21. 1801.
WILLIAM THOUNMSEJI .w1ERMAN.
len. i. T. Sherman, one of the
prominent figuree in American hie
tory, passed to the great beyond
yeeterday at his reeidence in New
York city. His fight against death
was a brave one, as might be ex
pected of the hero of so many battle
fields, but in thie instance he had to
succumb. Hie death bed was eur
rounded by his family and many re
latives and friende, and the nation
mourns his lose.
William Tecumseh Sherman was
the son of Judge Charles B. Sher
man and was born in Lancaster. Ohio,
Feb. 8. 1820. From the time of his
father's death in 1829 he was reared
in the family of Hon. Thous. Ewing
and in 1836 was appointed a cadet in
the U. S. military accademy, graduat
ing in July 1840, receiving the com
miesion of second lieutenant. In 1858,
when he had attained the rank of
captain, he resigned from the army
and engaged in ihe banking bueiness
in San Francisco. In 1857 he removed
to Now York in which year the affairs
of his firm wore closed, and the fol
lowing year he located at Leaven
worth. Kats., and engaged in the
practic of law. In 1859 he accepted
the presidency of the Lonisana State
Seminary of Learning and Military
academy, remaining at its head until
the war broke out. In Jannary, 1861,
he wrote to the governor asking to be
relieved the moment the state de
rernmeu to eeceue, ana mie reques
was soon granted. He then returnee
to St. Louis and was soon afterward
appointed colonel of the Thirteenti
infantry. From this time began hi
great military career. He led i
brigade at the battle of Bull Run ani
did perhaps more hard fighting that
any general in the civil war. A
Shiloh he commanded a division an(
according to Gen. Halleck "saved thi
day." To follow his career for the
next four years would require more
space than the Tainusa has at com
rnand. He was in the forefront of the
great war and one of its most con
spicuous heroes. The history of hii
famous "march to the sea" is well
known as is the prominent part hi
took in bringing the war to a close
Hle reached Washington with hii
conquering followers May 24, 1865
and after a grand review his army
was dissolved. In June, 1865 he was
appointed to command the military
division of Mississippi; was promoted
to be Jieutenant general in 1864. On
the accession of .ein. Grant to the
presidency 1o became general March
4. 1869. He was retired February 8,
1884, having reached the limit of
active service allowed by law.
On May 1, 1850, lien. Sherman
married Ellen, daughter of Thos.
Eiwug, who was then secretary of the
interior. The union was a happy
one and several children survive the
general whose wife preceded him to
General Sherman was universally
respected by his countrymen on ac
count of his unselfish and patriotic
devotion to his country as well as for
his manly and sterling qualities of
head and heart. He will stand in
history as one of the greatest military
captains of modern times.
HIS HA1 THE MONEY.
President Hill is a prince in finance
when it comes to raising money, says
the Anaconda Standard. Better than
that, he is a model of good manage
ment when it comes to the judicious
use of borrowed money in railway
construction. He was the promotor
of the best road that connects St.
Paul with western Montana today,
and he asked no government subsidy
at that, nor is he trying to add to a
subsidy robbery the shameless
plunder of miles wide of the public
domain on eech side of his road bed.
as his rival line has done and is doing
The Great Northern road is at this
moment the best built, the safest
and the best equipped line between
the city of Butte and Minneapolis.
Its coaches for everyclass of travelers
are incomparably the best kept, it"
services is the most eatisfactory and
its servants the most courteous. This
much is frankly admie ted by the
traveling pubro. It will be remem
bered by all observing people that
the impulse given to Butte's present
era of property was coincident with
the arrival of Mr. Hill's road around
the curve at Meaderville on its march
into the Silver City.
We expect to see the Great North
ern continue its line in this section of
Montana. We expect to see it extend
its tracks from Butte to Anaconda, up
the canyon to the great camps near
Phillipsbura, over the range to the
Bitter Root country, on to Missoula
and beyond toward the Flat Head
country, perhaps, there to meet the di
rect line which Mr. Hill is construct
ing from Assiniboine to the Pacific
coast. It is betraying no secret to say
that the fact that the ronte we have
just outlined is not a reality today is
in no sense the fault or failure of Mr.
Hill. Long ago he realized that the
stretch of road from Butte to Ana
conda and Missunla opens to railroad
builders as tempting a field as the
northwest afords. This road will be
built and its construction will be wel
Yesterday's dispatches announce
that Mr. Hill has secured all the
funds required for completing his
northern line across this state and for
continuing it to the coast. That is
good news. It is the end of prelim
manes conducted by the man who ii
at once the boldest and most discern
ing railroad builder in this country
OUR TRADE WIZH BRAZIL.
The subjoined statistics indicate
that Secretary Blaine's reciprocity
ideas, as applied to Brazil, are in the
right line and will do much to in
crease the trade of this country with
the new South American republic:
During the year ending June 80. 1890,
we bought from Brazil `59,000,000 worth
of its products and sold it $11,000,000
worth of oirs.
The diplomatic consular report made to
the British parliament In 1889 contains
The United Slates of America takes
much over half the coffee export of Bra
zil, over half the India-rubber, fully halt
the hides and horns, and alout two-fifths
of the sugar crop, altogether about hall
the entire exports, while the imports into
Brazil from the United States barely
reach one-seventh oh the total,the remain
oer being paid via Europe instead of di
rect exports of products.
In 1858 there were entered at the port
of Rio de Janeiro, not counting goods ad
mitted free, $25,000.000 of imports from
Great Itritain, $9,000,000 from France.
$7,000,000 from Germany, and $4,000,000
from the United States.
The trade is now principally with Eu
Under the policy of reciprocity the
balance of trade as between the Unit
ed States and Brazil is likely to be in
the former's favor and if recipro
cal relations were entered into with
other nations this country would be
vastly benefitted. Blaine's policy is
in favor of freer trade and to that ex
tent is a vast improvement on the
McKinley idea of high protection
duties in the interest of the manufac
turers without regard to the welfare
of commerce or of the people gener
AN OPERA 1IHOU1TR.
Is it not time our citizens were tak
ing steps towards securing an opera
house for Groat Falls? This is one
of the urgent necessities of the city
and united action may be necessary
to secure it. The TIIBUNE believe.
that a good hall capable of seating
600 or 700 people would fill the re
quirements for two or three years, at
which time we would be ready
for a $100.000 structure and
private or corporate capital to
build it would be forthcoming.
When we have attained a population
of 90,000, capital will be quite willing
to seek investment in a grand opera
house, but meantime some provision
must be made to meet this urgent
want. Why not organize a company
and build a $10,000 hall? We believe
it would be a good investment, for
such a hall is needed not only for
theatrical companies but for political
meetings, balls and many other pur
poses. Property purchased now with
in the business limit would increase
in value so rapidly that the company
in two or three years would find their
stock quoted way above par. A one
story building of sufficient size would
answer the purpose and serve Great
Falls as an opera house for two or
three years. We hope that some of
our enterprising citizens will take the
matter in hand and see to it that the
city is not much longer without such
a place of amusement
UNoza recent date R. G. Dun & Co.
report as follows as to the condition of
trade: Though at a higher level of
pnces, business continues to exceed last
year's on the whole, and is in character
more healthy and conservative than
usual. With less speculative excitement,
with a senseof uncertainty making buyers
cautious in nearly all lines, so that pur
chasers ape closely confining to actual
demand for consumption, the volume of
business transacted is nevertheless much
t greater than a year ago in some of the
most important branches, and in scarcely
any is there material decrease. Money
markets are everywhere easy, in part
I because speculative liquidations and the
marketing of crops have liberated large
sums of money for which there is no
Immediate use, and the volume of cur
t rency in :irculatlon therefore decreased
nearly $4,000,000 in January. But it is
noteworthy that while outstandleg legal
tender, bank notes, silver certificates,
silver notes and silver coin all decreased,
there were over $11,000,000 more gold
certificates taken out and held in circu
Tita Pioneer Press says: There is not
likely to be a particle of truth in the
story telegraphed from Chicago that one
of the objects of President Hill's visit to
London is to secure control of the Chi
cago, St. Paul and Kansas City road, and
that be has secured such control. Mr. A.
B. btickney, who ought to know if any
such movement is on foot, knows nothing
..bout it. To say the least, it is highly
improbable that Mr. Hill has any idea of
acquiring this or any other Chicago con
nection. If so, he must have very recent
ly changed his views as to the expediency
of such a measure, for he has heretofore
maintained that it was much to the ad
vantage of the Great Northern to hold an
udependent position with respect to all
the Chicago roads which connect with it
"DExOcacy opposed to free silver" is
the caption of an article in the Leader, in
which Mr. Cleveland's views on this sub
ject are set forth. We did not know be
fore that Grover Cleveland is the "democ
rac)." If the Leader would learn the
ipinion of the democracy on this subject
let it study the votes of the democrats In
the natiousl senate and house of repre
sentatives on the free-coinage l Ill. The
democracy is practically a unit In favor
of free silver, and Mr. Cleveland's views
do not change thesituation in the least.
HaNRY WArraitmoN's letter to Gover
nor Hill urging him to accept the sena
torship and withdraw from the presiden
tlal race is creating a little breeze in the
political world. Gov. Hill say he never
received the epistle and is not very well
pleased with its "impudent tone." Mr.
Watterson avers that the letter was
written wttb the best and kindliest in
tentions and that the goveri.or should
receive it in that light only. The TRIBUNE
published the essential part of the letter
a few days ago.
THE census office eas Issued a bulletia
in regard to changes in the fioatinq
equipment on the great lakes since 1886
In 1886 the net tonnage of the vessel
used for transportation on the great lakei
was 684,658; in 1800 it had reached 826,
860, an increase of 191.780 toes. The
estimated value of these vessels in 1884
was $80,597,450 and In 1890 the aggre
gate valuation was $58,198,500, an Increase
compared with 1886 of P97,458,150.
