THE GREAT FALLS & BELT MOUN
Again the croakers are discon
certed. What next can they take up
for their senseless prattle? There
were those who firmly asserted that
the Manitoba road would never be
built to Great Falls; that the mag
nificent wagon bridge which spans
the Missouri at this point was only a
creature of imagination; that the
great smelter was only talked about
in order to boom the town; that the
vast coal fields of Sand Coulee con
sisted only of wind and ashes. Routed
at every point they tried to make a
few deluded listening loafers believe
that the Sand Coulee extension would
never be made to therich Belt mines.
But alas for the croakers, they must
still seek other new fields; for a corps
of engineers is already in the field
selecting the most feasible route to
the wealth-giving mines. The rail
-rueoad will be completed to this point
this year. These are tidings of great
joy to the people of the Northern
Montana metropolis, for it means a
most important step in the develop
ment of Northern Montana and Great
Falls. It lays tributary thereto a
mining district richer and more ex
tensive than that which made a Den
ver. It will quicken industry in all
branches in this section of toe coun
try. This will also promote the set
tlement of the vast tracts of farming
lands in this vicinity, as a local mar
ket is assured as well as direct con
nection with the trade centers of the
east. The building of the smelter is
no experiment, as its management as
well as that of the railroad are thor
oughly convinced of the unprece
dented richness of the Belt mount
ains. The smelter will be enlarged
to meet the supply of ore, entailing
the employment of many more me
chanics and laborers and an expendi
ture of thousands of dollars during
the present season.
A PUBLIC HALL.
Great Falls is nothing if not met
ropolitan. It is metropolitan with
constantly increasing improvements,
such as steam heat, electric lights,
water works, to say nothing of sev
eral million dollars worth of railroads
and smelters; why shouldn't we have
a public hall-an opera house? We
can afford large and appreciative au
diences to the best companies which
travel in the west and the latter are
applying for admittance, but we have
no suitable auditorium in which to
receive them. The excellent enter
tainment given by the Heine family
at the Presbyterian church was much
impaired by the size and nature of
the place of gathering. Ourbusiness
men are not so entirely absorbed with
the mania for acquiring the "mighty
dollar" that they cannot pay some
tribute t) their hours of ease. As
families always accustomed to enter
tainments of the better class are con
stantly settling here, the demand for
a good hall increases. To any cap
italist who contemplates building an
other of the large and substantial

we can conscientiously say that he
can make no better investment than
to devote a portion of the block to a
public hall, besides conferring there
by a lasting benefit to his fellow citi
zens. Meritorious entertainments,
wholesome amusements :hould be
encouraged. They are civilizing, re
fining and have much to do with
forming and strengthening the gen

munity like this.
It has been wisely said that this is
the garden spot of Montana; the ex
tensive table-lands so well adapted.
for the production of wheat without
the proce:: of irrigation; the copious
grasses grown on the bench lands;
the healthful climate so necessary for
diversified out-door pursuits, show
in a convincing manner that the state
ment is confirmable. That the aver
age rain-fall is sufficient for agricul
tural purposes, cannot be questioned.
The fertility of the soil is exemplified
by the waving fields of wheat and
oats. There is a growing home
market in Great Falls, and ample
railway communications afforded.
Such a vast area of rich country con
tiguous to Great Falls to be more
fully developed affords one of the
richest and most illimitable agricul
tural sections in the world. It is
true that at present there is a great
inflnux of persons who are bent upon
securing a portion of these rich lands.
Even in barbarous countries, where
the soil is less productive, the natives
have secured a competency; here in
this grand country, where the light
of intelligence has attained so great a
brilliancy, and many generations have
marked the progress of civilization, is I
it not reasonable to believe that by
the proper application, of adequate
labor,agriculture will be attended with
great profit? Great Falls is the me
tropolis of that vast region which ex
tends from the main range of the
Rocky mountains to the western
boundaries of Dakota. Surely this
grand country is natures store-house;
open the doors and behold how val
uable are its possessions.

The exposition which is to be held
in Augusta, Georgia, in October and
November,is another one of the proofs
of the great industrial awakening
which has occurred in the southern
states. The states more nearly inter
ested in the enterprise are Georgia,
North and South Carolina and East
ern Tennesee, but the exposition will
be made national in its character by
exhibits from all of the states and
territories. The exhibition of ma
chinery will be unusually large, es.
pecially in that class relating to tex
tile manufacturing. A large share of
of this machinery comes from the
north. There is no more encouraging
sign for the industrial future of the
country than the increasing number
and success of these exhibitions in
the south. It is to be hoped that the
the people of Montana will become
interested to such an extent as to ad
equately represent the mining and
agricultural products of this great
