Perhaps he will sell them to his friend, Morgan, and Morgan will run them where he listeth. With our enormous foreign trade there is plenty of business on one ocean or the other for all the ships that our yards can turn out. At the present tille American vessels are carrying 1int K per cent of our foreign colltlerce, and American shippers are pay ing foreign shipowners annually $30,. noi.non for doing a freighting lusiness that we ought to do ourselves. LESERTTING THE NAVY We hear a good deal of the dissatisfac. tion that exists among the navy recruits wio enlisted from this part of the country. In this connection the New York Marine Journal notes that the number of deser tions from the navy for the month of March was .jo6, and if they continue at this rate it will bring the total for the year to 4,0oo. This would ble ot.on more thau last year. As a matter of coure, says tile Journal. there is a reason for this serious depletion of warships' crews, and it linuls these reasons ill the current reports that the men are not given suffticient lib erty, and especially at a reasonable time after their tnilist nii.t. Recruits for the navy are obtailrwd to some extent by mis representationl oni the part of subordinates connetted with shipping them. and the menll's iaisapprehlensionl of the conditions they are to confront. .\ large portion of the tnen for the navy are enllisted from the interior. They have dlulbtlets tad of the exciting life that ithe sailor leadl.

STRAY THOUGHTS ON MONTANA Those persons who are disposed to find fault with the weather should think of the cyclones in Illinois and the floods in the South and be thankful they are spared those affictions. The outside world pas to be hkeping fairly well laformed of the movements of President Roosevelt, who ia hidden C the wilds of the National padr, ia spite of the. effert e at Serecy. Men who come to Montana looking fpr bandits sad the like would have betlr luck were they to turn their attention o Chicago, where masked men are holdI up the street cars, and to Buffalo, wheje there were five tragedies Sunday. The people of the West may not wear so many silk hats as do the people of the East, tl*t they behave themseldves better. If the wild animnals in Yellowstone pat look at all like the pictures of them printed in aone of the Montana papers, the place is indeed "wonderland." Ac cording to the pictures, the alnalals Io more like dragons and extinct rept than they do like mountain lions, beai deer and the like. It's queer bow women can stand col4 weather. especially when they have on handsome new Easter bonnets and gowns. Another Montana authoress has been discovered. It is to be hoped her book will prove as successful as was the work of the Butte girl who wrote a volume sone time ago. Spring has not yet reached l.ibby, ac cording to the Western News of that place, which says: "There were a few robins in this section of the country last week, but most of them have been ton plicuous by their absence the past few days. In order to do any considerable Iusiness in their line at present they should be equipped with German sox and snowshoes." With Jo-year sentences being dealt out to would-be train robbers.

These figures Indi cate that the Americans 'have any amount of foodstuffs on hand still, and this abundance of feed will have a depressing effect on the price of cattle for a little longer time than expected.

If the decision should be upheld by the supreme court, Northern Securities stock will disappear from the market and (;reat Northern and Northern Pacific stock will reappear. This will require some bookkeeping and clerical work, like that which went on about Morgan's office when the reverse transformation was made; but it will not affect the funds mental fact of ownership one whit. The controlling interest of the two roads will be owned by the same individuals; only they will not be permitted to associate themselves in such a way as to make it difflicult for any one to buy either control away from them. But for this, we imag ine that Mr. Hill and his friends would care little for the decision against them. -Minneapolis 'tribune. The decision fully sustains the consti tutionality of the Sherman law and de clares that there is no merit in the con tetntion that the act unduly restricts the rights of an individual to make contracts and buy and sell property. Congress has full power to legislate concerning interstate commerce, and having exercised its authority in the enactment of the anti trust law, that law must be sustained and corporations and private individuals must adapt themselves to it.-Denver Repub lican, Is the business world to look for a gen eral turning-upside-down of the property transactions of a dozen years?-New York Commercial. It will not escape the attention of the observant, however, that by decisions like this in the Northern Securities case the courts may actually do great public harm. A combination formed in good faith, not to restrain trade, but to pro mote it, a great corporation which was a source of public benefit, would not for those reasons escape the enjoining de cree and prohibition. In the Northern Securities case the court fixes its eye on the assumed intent, and declares that the act forbidden is the obtaining of power to do unreasonable things, whether in fact such things are done or not. That is a pretty important aspect of the deci sion in the Northern Securities case. New York Times. In the past we have boasted that our railroad prosperity was due, at least in part, to our remarkable methods of con solidation, for thus we reduced operating expenses and did away with needless com petition. Now the court decides that such a combination is illegal in certain drcumntances, and those circumstances cover to a very large degree the condi tions that exist in most of our large rail road systems. How far, then, must pres ent methods be changed? For our part, we must admit that the decision is so broad that its full limits cannot be de duced on a first or even a second reading of the opinion of the court.--Boston Her aid. Jessup to Washington. Missoula, April 14.-Walsle B.

At the poor farm the conmnissioners saw *how the new trees are being set out. TLey also examined a road near the Co. lumbia Gardens. Before returning they expected to look into the merits of a pe tition that had been received asking fr some road inmprovements in the McQueen addition.
