LEVI P. MORTON
Of New York.
Milton George of the Western Ru
ral and American Stockman, a weekly
agricultural and stock journal pub
liahed in Chicago thus writes of Mon- I
tana after having recently visited this
"We now enter magnificent Mon
tans, with her rich and fertile valleys
and plains, her towering mountains,
her canyos deep and impressive, her
water-falls, and above alher grand t
people making as diversified ande
beautiful a picture as God or man
e'er painted beneath the skies,. It
iis worth going 1,600 to see the
grandner of this great territory. To
the apreciative of beautiful nature,
the scenery will fill the soul with ad
miration; and to him who has never
looked with absorbing or even mod
erate interest upon the wonderful and 1
intricate exhibitions of even ordinary 1
natural seensa, Montana will unroll
a panorama of beauty that will thrill
and charm. From the line to Helena
the railroad runs through a granduer
and a variety of scenery that charms
the eye and fascinates the mind, and
kindles at evey turn of the wheels an
anticipation of something grander and
grander. Through broad tracts of
of elegant land, dotted with innumer
able herdsof fatattle, and waiting for
the immigrant to come and make him a
home amidst its fertility; though new
settlements madebysharp and discern
ing men who behold the magnificent
possibilities of the country and the
brilliant future that is awaiting it;
through towns that have sprung up in
night and will grow to influence and
aflience; by the hut of the settler and
winding along the banks of the crook
ed Missouri nver through the Prickly
Pear canyon and the lofty mountains
lifted by the side of the track on which
we roll, the Rockies, with their snow
capped peaks frowning in thedistance
and mountains thrown together, as if
the place were a scene of Milton's im
agery, and the roar of the water-fall
thundering a perpetual melody that
salutes the silence of mountain ranges
and wars on the silence of the night,
the beholder seems to be transported
into the more immediate presence of
the mighty hand that plowed out the
valley, lifted the mountain and traced
the river and waves the waters over
the cataract. Our country, wide and
broad and diversified in all that makes
a natural landscape beautiful may
present somewhere a finer picture,
stretching out like revolving scenes
for hundreds of miles, but Montana
has enough of granduer to satisfy the
hunger of the greediest soul, and
to furnish reality for every flight of
the wildest fancy. Mr. Hill, the
projector of the Manitoba railroad,
could have been called visionary only
by him who was ignorant of the splen
dort of Montana scenery. The time
will come when the passenger depart
ment of the road alone will be able to
count out a handsome dividend from
the wonder seeking crowds who will
go to see the beauties of the vast em
pire of Montana."
WOOL GRIOWIFG IN MOANTAN.
Tar wool industry in this territory
has been no holiday Kid-glove affair.
It anolves constant risk and expense
living upon beaon and flour, with
little food in a44U~tin, exposed to
severe storms and cold in 1ipter, an
xiety and constant care night a4 ioy
in lambing time when a snow storm
may mean a loss which will knock off
the profits and eat into the capital,
with hard toil storing up hay shear
ing and freighting to the railroad in
summer, the life of the wool grower
is not an ideal one. Baffled by storms
suffering great loss by snow storms or
disease, his whole life is one of un
ending toil and watchfullness and
well he merits what fortune he may
make in this industry. A fair reward
well deserved, the careful and perse
vering sheep man up to this time has
received. But at the very time when
educated by bitter experiences he
looks forward to something more than
a moderate compensation for his
labors, comes bitter disappointment.
A few days ago the Democatic
house, obeying the command of the
dictator Cleveland carried the clause
of the Mills bill placing wool on the
free list and unfastened the doors to
Great Britain and the world. The
only hope of Montana wool growers
today lies in the Republican Senate
and the election of Harrison. Already
the miners of Butte and Helena are
joining the Republican ranks to show
they are not in sympathy with the
destructive policy of Cleveland's.
But Great Falls which if anything is
to be the manufacturing city of the
Northwest, as well as the center of a
great wool country, is the most in
terested of any of the towns of Mon
tana. Let her not be behind Butte,
Helena or Benton.
A gentlemen from St. Louis lately
remarked: "He had been a Dem
ocrat all his life and so was nearly
every employee in the establishment
with which he was connected. But
this year every one of the 250 employ
ees had voluntarily announced they I
would vote the Republican ticket.
"THE woods are full of them." this
year. On the Montana Central train
the other day, there were twenty
five in favor of protection and only
one in favor of free trade.
THea latest advices from Helena are
to the effect that the officers are on
the track of the escaped prisoners. t
THE WOOL TARIFF.
The Republicans of the House Stand
by the Growers on this Issue. a
The house then went into committee of
the whole on the tariff bill, the pending t
schedule being that relative to wool. t
Outhwaithe(Ohio) ridiculed the assertion
that the effect of the tariff had been to 1
increase the number of sheep in this
country. He thought the natural fecun
dity of flocks had something to do with
the increase. Onthwaithe proceeded to
argue that a high tariff had no influence
upon the price of wool, which was regu
lated by the law of supply and demand.
He quoted statistics to show that under a
high tariff the price of wool had steadily
declined. He did not claim the decline
was attributable to the tariff, but to the
increased supply of wool. The bill pre
sented a fair proposition to make a re
duction on woolen goods equal to the re
duction which would result from putting
wool on the free list.
La Follette (Wis.) took up and criti
cized Carlisle's speech on the bill, especi
ally that portion of it in which the speaker
endeavored to show the prosperity of the
country during the low tariff from 1850
to 1860. To do this, he said Carlisle had
recourse to the percentage argument, and
had shown that the percentage of increase
in the woolen, cotton, hardware, hosiery
and boot and shoe industries had been'
very large. But the trick of the percent
age argument was that the manufactures
might be so small that any increase would
make a percentage showing. The gentle
man had taken care to select those articles
which (with one exception) were not
touched, or only slightly, by the act of
1846. The gentleman hiiad said the tariff
of 1846 had been so beneticial that in 1857
every representative from New England
who voted at all had voted for the bill
MAKING A UNIFOtRM REDUICTION
Of 20 per cent, and that among them was
Justin L. Morrill. This was an error so
gross and unjust, as to demand correction
and rebuke. The gentleman from Ken
tucky, who used it with such emphasis
and telling effect, had either made an in
excusable blunder or been guilty of the
meanest sort of political pettifogging.
Nothing escaped thle gentleman's net.
He claimed everything for low tariff.
He had both ends of the "teete" in the air
at the same time. lie trifled with facts
when he said this country recovered from
the depression of 1857 in a few months.
At the conclusion of his speech La Fol
lette was heartily congratulated by his
U Grosvenor referred to the decrease of
I the wool industry in Ohio. and the great
falling off in the price of the wool crop,
and said it was all due to the menace of
the Mills bill. After the republicans,
aided by one or two Ohio democratic
n members, had stricken out the enacting
clause of the Morrison bill, the price of
a wool had sprung up from three to five
cents per pound. What was to be gained
p by this peculiar geographical attack?
a Would a sane man strike down this great
I industry for the sake of reducing the
revenues a few million dollars'?

Quay of Pennsylvania Chosen ChaIr

The republican national committee in
New York last week received the ex
ecutive committee on the league of re
publican clubs' headed by W. W. John
son of Nevada. Judge Thuston of Ne
braska was introduced as the spokesman
He said the coming campaign was one of
war, and his committee were there to re
celve instructions as to their position in
the battle. They were there for orders
and would carry them out faithfully.
Chairman Clarkson, in reply, welcomed
the volunteers, as he termed them, and
said the national committee appreciated
their advances and were mighty glad to
have their co-operation in the campaign.
It was decided to request the national
committee to appoint a commtttee to con
fer with the executive committee of the
league as to the best plan of utilizing the
support of the league. Mrs.Foster of the
Iowa Woman's Temperance Advocate
was next ushered in the rooms. In a
long address she presented a plila for the
formation of a woman's nation:al republi
can club. At a meeting of the national
committee Senator M. S. Quay of Penn
sylvania was chosen chairmanin. a d State
Senator J. S. Fassett d New \.ork secre
tary. They were appointed to hold the
same offices on the executive committees.
The president of the state lealgue of re
publican clubs held a conference with
the national republican committee, but
no information was given out. A con
ference committee has been appointed by
the league to confer with ai similar com
mittee of the national republican com
A resolution indorsing the league of re
publican clubs was passed, as was also
one favoring the organization of women's
The national committee also appointed
the following sub-committee to take
charge of the campaign for the Pacific
states and territories: Jonathan Bourne,
Oregon; Arthur C. Mellette, Dakota; Ed
ward Williams, Nevada. On territories
Evans, Mellette and Warren were ap
pointed as a separate committee. John
C. New is the first named member of the
executive committee, and he will prob
ably be chosen chairman.
President Hill's Liberality.
Mr. James J. Hill, in the following B1
note to Dr. Neill, gives another evidence
of the intelligent and generous public sh
spirit which he had already exhibited in fo
large contributions for the observatory, at
Carleton college, to the French church,
to the Young Men's Christian association
and other objects of public concern:
ST. PAUL, July 10.-.Rev. Edward D. C
Neill, D. D. Dear Sir: The proposition
to establish a library of reference in the -
arts, sciences and literature, open to all
investigators, in connection with Macales
ter college has been considered. If the
trustees will erect a tire-proof building,
to cost not less than $20,000, upon the
completion of the same I will give $5,000
with the understanding that $2,500 shall D
be expended for books by the librarian
at that time, and that the balance shall be
safely invested and the annual interest
expended for the library. Until the com
pletion of the building the librarian is
authorized each month to draw on me for
$30 for the purchase of important books
and material, said sum to form a part of av
my contribution as above, and the pay
ument thereof net to extend over a lonsger
period than three years from date. Yours
truly, JAMES J. HILl.
A library of the sort proposed would
be very useful, not only to Macalester
college and the residents of its immediate
vicinity, but to the people of St. Paul and
Minneapolis, and the proposition to es
tablish it is deserving of such substantial
encouragement as isafforded in the above
There are some odd characters here
abouts. Over in.South Canyon, which is
inaccessible except through the upper
end or head of this canyon, lives Charles
Gray. He has been prospecting there
for seven years. What he has found no
one knows. He imagines that all the
world has formed a league to steal his SI
claims from him. In Six-mile Gulch,
there is another hermit-Judge Stillman.
It is supposed that friends in the States
send hint money to buy provisions. H.
W. Ziegler completes the trio. He is at
the head of the canyon and has been there
for eleven years. tInaided he has drilled -
a tunnel 460 feet through solid rock. Not
an ounce of material in sight and never
has been. He says he will strike five
fissure veins before he gets through the
mountain. Long before he gets through
the mountain, the mountain will furnish
him a hole for an eternal resting place.
