The growth of Irish coummerce, which has expanded from $.48,oni0,Ti in 1896 to near ly $67,000,000 in 19o, is ainother intlicationl of the increasing prosperity of Irelanti. CLIMATES THAT ARE SLANDERED The people of Wetert n lMonttanai ill perhaps resent iany refereince to nlluttana climate which couples it with that of Alaskahi. This tl:ey coul doIn with good relasont if any other than Southeastern Alaska were mleant. The climtate of South eastertn Alaska is even miore generally mis understood and mnisjudiged than that of .loutana. The Ketchikau Mining Journal hias undertaken to correct this prevailing opinion that the whole of Alaska is a "frozen empire." It protests against the wortdit of a preambl e to a set of resolt tions adopted by the chanmber of com nlierce of Seattle asking congress for the enactment of more liheral laws fir Alaska. 'This preamble is as follows: W\hereas, Ity reason of its climatic con ditions, the season of labor is limited to scarccly more than three monitths, its io lated situation and undevcloped condi tion ldemands the fostering legislation of the general goverltitiet. 'IThe contention of the Mining Joutirntal i that clllimatic conditions in Southeastern Alaska, iwhich part of the territory is iot exempt by the jpreamble, are no lmore ttun favorable for mininig operations and for general labor thanl are climatic contlitiois around Seattle or throughout the iuiget soulld counitry. This is true, as is at tested by miniers and others who have gone from Montana to that part of Alaska. The climate thete seems not to lie greatly ldiffcrenit from that of Western Monutana, which, like that climate, is much better thail its rleputation. The Seattle Post Intelligecte eXplainis that the resolutions comiplained of were directed to the con ditiusi which prevail in the mininig re gions of the extretme northern part of Alaska, the Cape Nome and Ytukon river countries, where precisely the conditions exist which are recited ill the preamble of the Seattle chamber of conmiierce reso lutlnit. The Alaska tuewspaper is tou scn;itive, althtugh it tiiust be recogsizced that the task of correcting the popular tiisaippre. lenioin as to the climate of Southeastern Ala.ika has been a hard one, and naturally anything which, even by far-fetched in ferentec, tends to perpetuate those nis aipprcihensions is resented. It is butt exact truth to say, as the MitIng Journal does, that in Southeastern Alaska the tempera ture rarely fails below zero, the snowfall is light as compared to that of the MIiddle .estern Mtates, and that generally the cliomate is no obstacle to the exploitation oh the country's natural resources. Nor is thii, at all remarkable whet it is consid ered that the best developed portion of Southeastern Alaska is in no higher lati tude thai the most thickly settled portion of liurope; and that solte of the most highly developed wanufacturing cont* munmtles in the world, including the great shipyards of Scotland, are further to the northward than is the town of Ketchikan, Alaska, and in a climate very much more severe. Seattle, as well as Westcrn Montana, has found it necessary to correct a wrong impression as to the Puget Sound climate. The Post-Intelligencer recalls that It was but a few years ago that a bureau official of the navy department criticised the location of the navy yard at Bremerton, Wash., because of the alleged hlyper borean climate and the alleged shortness of the days, due to the very high latitude, which rendered it Impossible to work there in winter. Going still further back, the writer recalls an editorial appeaying In the New York Herald, on the surjcct of an rnprecedentcdly early frost in that city, v hich, alluding to the premature visit of "jack-frost," and his quick de parture, closed with the statement: "B'lt he has departed to rejoin his childreet, the walrus and the polar bear, in the far. "il frozen seas of ltaffin's bay and Puget soumnl." I!ut the world "do mrr6." Kno.wl.edgei of the climate of Puget sound is i1ow pretty fairly exteiided over the rivilizt.l worl; and a like knowledge will soon exter.d as to the climate of Alaska, And let us tcherish tile hope that even Montana will yet receive due credit for a climate tha:t is hardly surpassed by that of any state in the Union.

The defense of the coinnittee is that the great work of Mrs. (ougar did the party nmure liaru than god., especially her references to WVilliam McKinley. This does; not strike ui as a good legal defense. Tl'he eloquent lady was following t policy marked out for her, anud the fact that the policy was a mils takeli one ought .nt to be a bar aigainst payment for her services. We trust it may not become necessary for Mr. l)ebs to s:te his new socialist party for his valuable services, whlichs are very similar to those suppllied by Mrs. (;ougar in Nleraska. Tili Philadelphia doctor who brought in a bill of $2_o,ooo for medical attendance upon the late Christopher I.. Magee of Pittsburg, and threatened to labsorb the whole estate if it was not paid, has been awarded $29,239.2 5 by a jury. Inasmuch as it has cost the ductor close to this iamount to fight the case in the courts, it would scent that quick sales and smaiiill profits was not exactly a baid policy for doctors to adopt.

EUGENE CARROLL, general manager of the Butte Water company, is pre. paring a celebration. He has succeeded in bringing to a remarkable stage of per. fection the task of the water supply of flutte and accomplishc bringing good Wa ter to a city situated in what may be termed barren land, and sQ he has con. cluded to take a number of his frI~tda out to Divide Sunday to a pure water party.

This pump has a task-by no means an ea ty one-of raising the water intendelc 7 , EUGENE CARROLL.

I \l inneapolis Tribune.] The establislctnent by the gove\rnment of a st;ag coach route from Cod(y, Wyo., to the Yellowstone National lPark, is not a remarkable thing. In a region like' that, where there ithe s no railroad to the point de sired to reach, it is the most feasible mneas of conlnunication. And lovers of thie pictnre.lue who have occasion to travel there will hole that it will be long before the romantic stage coach is superseded by the prosaic steami car. While this over land stage road will probably be one of the longest remaining in the country, the old stage has by no means passed out en tirecly of use in other sections. It is a favorite vehicle for pleasure travel all through the Ea:st, alId to a less extent in the older portiono of the \Vest. The \VWest has not so large a wealthy leisure class, but every city of considerable size, and Minnealoolis a.ong them, can man age to turn outt several stage coaches of the old regulation, pattern should their Irese'nce 1,e desired a. a feature inl a pa rade. A Prose Limerick. [ London Globc.J We are indebted to an Irish corres pondent for the following pleasant cut ting from "The l.imerick Chronicle:" "Curious Misprint.--In our leader on Saturday appears the sentence, 'roars gently as any sucking dlove.' The last word sihould have been 'calf.' " This calf, we take it, is a descendant of the original Irish bull. All Is Not Lost-to Butte. [Chicago Post.] It is reported that the net earnings of mining properties near Butte have de creased $10o.ooo,ooo for the year. But has not Mary said that she would go back, and will not her royalties continue to pile up--unless the newspapers run short of space? Why should Butte worry over a trifling few millions' loss in mining while it has Mary? PERSONAL Rev. Dr. Theodore L. Cuyler of Brooklyn has just completed the manuscript of his volume to be entitled "Recollections of a Long Life." Mrs. Thomas Simpson of Iloboken, N. J., daughter of Major Morton, an English army officer, has saved so many people from drowning, it is said, that she has "got tired of keeping count." Mrs. Hietty Green has offered to erect for Chesterton, Ind., a village of zoo pop ulation, a Masonic hall on the site of one recently burned. Andrew Carnegie has of. fered the same village a library on his usual terms. Lord Curzon of Kedleston is sure of a step in the peerage when his Indian vice royalty comes to an end, says the London Chronicle. lie will then be in the rare, though not unique, position of holding a rank greater than his father's. As a modeler of children's portrait statu ýttes Mrs. Sarah Greene Wright has 66rned an enviable reputation. Mrs. WSright received her first inspiration while tching some children who were playing the Luxembourg gardens. She has a udio in New York City, and has the dis. Uction of being the only woman who liakes children's portrait statucttes front ife. Pacific coast newspapers comment with astonishment on the number of law-abid ing citizens who speak with sympathy and admiration of Tracy, the fugitive murderer. One paper says that these misguided per sons seem to classify the escaped convict "with Funston, Wainwright, Hlobson and Dewey, and are incapable of distinguishing between a bold act of warfare and a dead murderous daring." Hall Caine is said to be following the precedent of Dumas. Finding his time and strength inadequate for cxpresvitng the ideas that surge through his brain, he is devoting himself to his forthcoming Manx novel and has mapped out another story, the details of which are to lie executed by a sub-contractor. The joint product will appear in his son's magazine, lfous. hold Words, with which Dickens was once a ssociated. GAME LOSER.

Baird's observation seems to nick in with Newton lBennington's experience at Brighton Beach yesterday. lie lost $15, oni when the game little Ethics nosed out Kilogram for first money in the Jamaica stakes. Tall, suave and with the utmost composure, after his commissioners had reported on $25,000 at 7 to 5 on Kilogram, he took up a point of vantage for a view of the race. He saw Kilogram break off well and open up a big gap down the back stretch. Oni the stretch turn he saw Ethics, under Burn's urging, conime abreast and then all down through the stretch this man with $15.000 wagered on the result was Kilogram and Ethics struggle head and head to the last to yards. Then in the last two jumips he saw Ethics poke his nose in front of Kilograsm and win right on the post. Then this typical American plunger thumbed back the lenses of his field glasses, jumped down off his elevated station and whisking the flowing tails of his familiar gray frock coat remarked to a hystander : ".My colt ran a nice race, did lie not? But you never know when you have the i.)wyers beaten. Have you the prices on the next race ?" Ageing Rapidly.

"Slhe's --she's nearly six," hurriedly ex plained the mother. '"That is, she's just going on six." The conductor looked at the mother for a second, and then, as he turned away, said : "\Well, madam, if I were you, I'd buy a ticket for her on the return trip. She's likely to be all of six by then." Final Sentences. [New York 'limes.] In introducing Judge Sulzberger of 'lhiladelplhia at a recent batnquet after several rabbis had spoken, I)r. Henry M. .I'ilepiger told this story. "Two ladies, had a dispute as to whicli was the most influential, the clergy on the beunch.
