factor in this trade inastiuh as lie prtc

business with Mr. Morgan nmust have
much significance. It is likely that
these two geotlentmen will confer

before they sign papers. Mr. Ilill has it
in hi lpower to Ibe a consideralble factor
inl the lacific trade himself, and lore

take advantage of his iopportunilties.
THE WEST AND THE TROPICS.
The current nubher of the Fiori con
tains an interesting article by O. P. Aus
tin, chief of the Bureau of Statistics, on
the growing id.penllence of the United
States up1on the tropics for the comforts
and requreuireents of daily life. It will'
surprise a good many to know that we are
nlow importing upwards of $1 ,.0,o,00 worth
of tropical and sub-tropical foodstuffl and
raw materials every day in the year. Prac
tically all of the imports from Asia, Africa
and Oiccanica, and a very large share of
thos, from America, south of the United
Statei, are tropical or sub-trolpical. China,
Japan and India furnish the bulk of thl.
importations from Asia and of our imports
from these countries, silk, fibres, tea, rice
and goat-skins form fully four-lifths of the
total \ alue; while most of the merchandise
froit the other tarts of Asia is even more
strictly tropical. While the nui
ler of articles imported from tropi
cal and sub tropical countries is,
of cthure, very large, the most important
are sugar, coffee, raw silk, india-rubber,
cocoan, fibres, fruits and nuts, tobacco, cot
ton andl tea. In thie inmportations of 19o ,
these ten articles aggregated in value $340,
954.77, or 84 per cent of the total of $.o05,
000,o000 or imnportations of what may be
termed tropical and sub-tropical products.
Even these figures do not show the real
growth in our importations of tropical
and sub-tropical products, as in nearly all
caaes there has been a marked decline in
the market value of these articles, so that
the increase in the number of dollars does
not by any means show the Increase In
the quantity of the articles under con
sideration.
The West and Montana as well as other
states has a peculiar interest in this trade.
Most of the money for these products has
been going to foreign countries. The Phil
ippines are undoubtedly capable, or will be
when developed by American energy, to
supply a large share of the various articles
for which we are now sending our money
abroad. The capacity of the Philippines
for the pro-luction of the fibres, tropical
fruits and nuts, cocoa, rice, spices, dye
woods, indigo, tobacco, sugar and many
other articles which we now import from
the tropics is already assured; and if it
should develop that they can also produce
coffee, tea, silk anI rubber, they may not
only prove the great source of supply for
our requirements of tropical products, but
in so doing would surely grow extremely
iprosperous, and thus become large con
slllers of our breac.stuffs, provisions and
lmanllfactlires. Therein will this trade
touch the interests of toe Pacific slope and
the west, for by the developlment of com
necrce with the lPhililpilnes we get inlo
more intimate trade relations with China
and lapani atild expand the mnarkets in the
tFar ;a.st for our oiWn productts. But lipar
ticularly will tile developmlent of the Phil
ippinel le of great advantage to the whole

Tit: names of the new owners of tihe
Philadelphia Record, who bought that
newspaper the other day at public auction
for something over $3,000,000, have been
disclosed. The new proprietors are Ex
Secretary of State William S. Stenger,
John \yeth and Henry B. Gross, pronmi
nent manufacturers of Philadelphia, and
1":x-Congressmnan James Kerr, of Clear
field, Pa. These men are prominent in
the political and industrial affairs of the
Keystone state and will maintain the
Record on the high plain upon which its
founder, the late William M. Singerly,
placed it. It is by all odds the most in
fluential democratic newspaper in the state,
if not in the cast, and a significant fact is
that the new management has no sympathy
with the political fagaries of William J.
Bryan of Nebraska, and it is extremely
doubtful if the Record would support him
if he were to receive the nomination. Mr.
Bryan might chew the sad circumstance
and derive such comfort from the cud as
may be extracted therefrom,

Perils of Courtship.
(Forsyth Times.)
Last week a Forsyth young man took
his Arabella out for a Ibuggy ride. They
had driven but a short distance when she
felt an abnormlal heat about her ankles.
Throwing back the lap role she found her
skirts were on fire, havinlg caught from a
lighted cigar which the young man had
carelessly thrown in the bottom of the
buggy. She sprang from the buggy and
ran into a nearby house, where several
people helped extinguish the flarhes, and
where she borrowed a skirt which was
not more abbreviated than the times and
customs demanded. And the heart-broken
swain is blushing yet,
Can't Do Both.
"So long as girls are interested in their
complexion they'll never be interested in
solar astronomy," said the man who seldom

"What difference does that make?" he
was asked.

Letters From the People on Topics of
General Interest.
About Cree Indians.
To the Editor of the Inter Mountain:
As a full-blooded Cree Indian let me
make a protest against the action of the
D)eer Lodge county officers and the senti
ment expressed in the press of Butte and
Anaconda with regard to my people.
We Crees, once the owners of all this
vast country, believe that we have suffered
many injustices at the hands of the
whites. We have become the Ishmacl
ites of the prairie, not through choice,
however, but by force of circumstances.
We are accused of being hungry and of
pilfering garbage heaps for food, That's
a crime. Poverty is a crime. We are ac
cused of being dirty. That's a crime.
But now comes the crowning injustice
which would he more annoying if it were
not touched with humor.
We are accused of washing in one
of the streams and polluting the water.
We can't express our feelings in this
matter. Once we owned the Missouri,
the Yellowstone, Milk River and all the
mighty streams that come thundering
down from the mountains on their way to
the great waters, and now we must move
on because our papooses washed in the
litde ax4 stream that runs sluggishly along
the sulphur-laden valley of Deer Lodge.
There, once we roamed happy and free-
buffalo meat instead of swill barrels, and
sweet air instead of sulphur fumes.
The white man's Christ had not where
to lay his head. The red man's exiled
('ree has not where to wash his feet.
Yours truly, CARLISLE.
About Thunder Mountain.
To, the Editor of the Inter Mountain:
I do not wish to start a controversy in
regard to Thunder Mountain, but an article
signed "Click" in your issue of June 4th
calls for a line in answer. "Click" is
evidently one of the "boomers" who was
probably never any nearer Thunder Moun
tain than Blackfoot.
I did not say there is no way to get in
from Three Forks. I said stages do not
get in to the Three Forks and they don't,
either. And furthermore it is as easy
to, get into lhree Forks via Salmon as it
is Mackey.
"C'lick" is either too ignorant to read
llnglish "as she is wrote" or else he is a
pIrofessional Idaho "mis-representative."
I know as much about mines and min
ing as the average man, and considerably
mo,re than an expert, and in conclusion I
want to say again as before, that consid
ering the amount of development work
dI lue, and considering the values exposed
by these developments, having the Dewey
mine, if it is a mine, out of the question
IThunder Mountain is the climax of all
the great fakes.
Not a word I wrote in my former letter
can be successfully contradicted and I
shall pay no more attention to articles
unless properly signed.
I can make "Click" and the rest of the
'clique" hunt their holes when they dis
pute the truthfulness of my letter in the
Inter Mountain of the 31st.

FEDED4TION TO GO INTO
MINING AND SMELTING
Tim Hurley's Interesting Resolution at
the Denver Meeting-Mr. Boyce's
Insurance Scheme.
The Denver Times, in its report of Tues
day's meeting of the Western Federation
of Miners, says: "An important matter
decided on today was in regard to the
federation entering the minin, milling and
smelting business. Tim Hurley of the Alt
man union introduced a resolution the
other day asking the federation to engage
in the mining business. He suggested that
one-third of the profits from successful
ventures be given to the workingmen and
two-thirds to the federation, the latter to
advance the money necessary to do the de
velopment work. Hiis resolution was con
sidered, but it was decided to have every
member of the federation take part in the
mining venture. To raise the necessary
money each member will be assessed $2,
and the fund raised, which will amount to
over $tzo,oo, will be used to purchase
and develop mlies. The ways and means
committee will report plans and the ex
ecutive board will handle the money.
"The insurance feature recommended
by President Boyce was also adopted.
This provides for the payment of money
for accidents fo all miners, members of
the federation, after 1907, providing they
have been in good standing for five years.
There will be no assessments. Mr Boyce
believes that sufficient funds will be on
hand to pay all policies."
PERSONALS.
Judge William T. Wood, who died a

Missouri old-timer. lie came to the state
from Kentucky in 1829, making the en
tire trip on horseback. lie was county
clerk of Clay county 72 years ago and
afterward, when circuit attorney, drafted
a petition to congress as a result of which
the Platte purchase became a part of Mis

Senator Ileitfeld of Idaho do(s not look
for an early adjournment of congress, pre
dictions regarding which remini him of
an Irishman who said of a friend:
"O'Grady don't lasht long in his job."
"What makes you think that? lie seems
to be doing all right," said another.
"Thrue for ye, but he'll not lasht a month.
I've said so iver since he got the job two
years ago, an' I say so now."
Representative Babcock of Wisconsin

their colleague because of the absence of
his whiskers.
