Where the en tries are shown to r b. e ho lide in char acter, and covered by the letter and spirit of tile act., they are promptly passed to patent. Where it a,lppears that they have tlven made for speculative purposes or in thi' interest of some person or persona other than the entrymen, a hearing is or A.,tI under the department circular of August 1,, l8801h, anld the entrymvnu cited c ancelted. Vast Increase. "Notwilthstandingli thli extreale care ex. ercied by this diepartment to protect the Itpublic timbered land.s from tulawfl, acquisition under this act, the entries therentller have, nIvertll less, as stated, increa;tsed vastly in nuimile.r. "The act, when legitimately observed aml followed, atllords such facilities for the acquisition by inlividuals anld corpora tions of vast bodies of the public timbered lands, that it is one of the greatest mennaces on the statute hooks today against the avowed policy of the govern ment to preserve the remaining public lands for homes for actual settlers." The unlawful fencing of pulblic lands also receives sonle attention. On this sub ject the report says: "The vigorous policy pursued by the de partmlent during the past year has resulted ill the diminution of the number of cases reported and of the acreage,emnbraced with in such unlawful inclosures, the total nutn her of cases reported during the year. as shown by the records of the general land office, being .135 , embracing 2,6o5,39o acres. Seventy-nine of these fences, in closing 1,075,450 acres, have been reported removed, in compliance with notices given by special agents. Proceedings are pelnding to compel the removal of 56, inclosing 62z..40 acres, It is hardly probable, however, that the reported cases include all of the inclosures maintained in violation of law. There are doubtless many others to which the insuf ficient force of special agents with their multitude of other duties have not been able to give attention. The trespassers, however, are beginning to show a gratify ing disposition to remove their fences without comlelling the department to re sort to the courts." Dewey Company. Tile case of the Dewey company is cited as one of the most flagrant violations of the law. On this subject the secretary says: "One of the most celebrated cases of this character brought to the attention of the department during the past year was that of the West End ranch, in Cheyenne county, Kansas, owned by"the Dewey Cat tie compi:n y aln me;naged by Chauncey Dewey, the latter being a son of C. P. Dewey, said to be the principal stock holder in the Dewey Cattle company. W'ithlin the past three years 61 miles of fence have been erected by said company in townships 4 and 5 south, ranges .15, 36 and 37 west, which, connecting with i8 miles of fence owned by others, makes a total length of 80 miles, 'phis fence li cloued an area, ill told, of 51,o40 acres, of which 3,r4o acres are state lands, 1,2cl are embtlrance in eight homestead entries a;ld 7.44u aeres are vacant public lands sublject to etlrty under public land laws. •'The ilclo.,ure of homesteads by the nhnlawful foenres of that company was the primary cause of the trouble which resultt ed in the killing, on or aout June 3 last, by I haunciy I)ew ey anld his emptloyes, of three mlemllbers of the Ilcrry family at the ihonIe of A llphtlits lherry, near the l)e ey ranctIh, Dewey's Policy.

Mr. Arthur Chapnman, writing from Dur ban, Natal, South Africa, says: "As a proof that Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is a cure suitable for old and young, I pen you the following: A neighbor of mine had a chihl just over a months old. It had a very bad cough and the parents did not know what to give it. I suggested that if they would get a bottle of Cham lerlain's Cough Remedy and put some upon the dummy teat the baby was suck ing it would no doubt cure the child. This they did and brought about a quick relief and cured the baby." This remedy is for sale by all druggists. HALLER BACK TO SPOKANE SPECIAL TO THE INTEtR MOUNTAIN, Missoula, Dec. I4.--W. J.

WILL FIGHT THE ALLIANCE The Silver Bow Trades and Labor assembly laid plans last night whereby to oppose the formation of a new central labor body and to deal with certain dissatisfied unions who have withdrawn their delegates from the assem bly. The meeting was entirely harmonious. 'lhat differences of opinion that may have existed appear to have been settled, now that the or ganization itself is assailed. It is likely that a fight against what is termed the "encroach. ment of the American Federation of Labor" will be launched. A committee was appointed to inquire into the status of Lindsay & Co., dealers in fruits and provisions. The firm was said to be con nected in some way with the Citizens' alliance of Helena.
