"D.,rocn'RAcv comes high," says the Minneapolis 'tribuno. Yes, but the peo ple must have it. IT seems settled that Platt will look after Harrison's interests in New York. Harrison should now find a reliable man to watch Platt. le the democrats carry the Ohio leg islature it is fair to assume that the next United States senator from that state will be a Cincinnati democrat. TuE people of Helena are responding generously to the demand for accommo dations for the teachers. They will sat isfy the committee that the town can take care of all who will come. "WHAT shall we do with woman?' asks the well-known author, Walter Be sant. Well, the street car companies in Chicago will employ her as a conductor. In other towns it often happens that woman marries, aund.thus it goes. Wo man is all right. EDITOR RUSSELL B. HIAnRISON, Of the Montana Farming and Stock Journal, writes that "good mushrooms can be told by the pink color underneath. Other colors are not reliable." As Pres ident Harrison is said to be so small that he cannot be seen by callers at the white house wepresume that the above sug gestion will assist in identifying him when found. How would it do for Mr. Murphy to try his hand on the German emperor? The other day he had a banquet on ship board, got roaring drunk and stirred up all Europe before he sobered up the next day. Now he declares that the poor quality of liquor is doing more to injure his peoule than anything else. and has announced that stringent laws must be passed requiring a pure article. One more drunk and this young man will be ready for the blue ribbon. TAR dats of the cominr,, fCir n little THE (ate or the comining fair is a little too early to enable farmers to properly show what Montana can do in an agri cultural way, but enough can be shown at the fair, week after next, to demon. strate that at an exhibition held a month later, in seasons as favorable as the last has been, Montana can compete with any state in the union in the yield of ce real and root crops to the acre. We hope the agricultural exhibits will be in keeping with the promise of large crops. THE other day a Seventh Day Adven tist in Tennessee was arrested for plow ing on Sunday and sent to jail. In the same state a few weeks ago there was a great riot over a convict labor law, con demned by every newspaper in the land. Besides Tennessee has long enjoyed the reputation of a commonwealth whore law is less respected than in the ma jority o states. The conviction of this poor Adventist for tilling the soil on Sunday is wrong in any event, but it is painfully absurd in Tennessee.

The democrats redoubled their effort' to ,h feat their enemies as the Cmall pigu olosed. In opposing the admission of Utah to the union the Salt Lake Tri bune has argued that this stop was not advisable because it was not believed the Mormons would keep their pledges to abandon polygamy. The real reasmon was because Utah was likely to become a democratio state. The recent election confirms this opinion. Utah has a pop. ulation of 250,000 people, who are as law aliding as any. She cannot be kept out of statehood much longer. ON MONTANA wHArHER. Uncle Jerry Rusk and Jupiter Plu vius in partnership have given the peo ple of this town a very entertaining weather programme for the summer months. We are particularly indebted indebted to Pluvius. He has taken several centuries to roach Helena on his route, but has endeavored to even matters by throwing in an extra supply of his own original, trade markad brand of weather. He has actually paral. yzed the oldest inhabitant, the old tinier and the old Montanian, the latter having the additional misfortune of an. other burden. But what do you think of it? Here is a commonwealth young, ambitious and eminently respectable when compared with her older sisters. She is endeavor ing to winl for herself a reputation for veracity, virtue and those sterling qual ties which were conspicuous in her old blood relations, the New England states. With an honest record of the past and an equal honesty of purpose, this lovely young maiden steps to the threshold of her domain and invites worldlings to become her subjects. When a glance of inquiry follows, she modestly but firmly points to the brightest star in I the constellation of weathers and says I "that is mine." A careful analysis of the past is asked mnd given. Look at Montana weather in any possible light, except through Butte smoke, and you will find the loveliest climate in the world. We have I with us always the life-giving mountain I atmosphere, a drink of which brings the t tingling of quickened blood and the o fullness of life's enjoyment. When 7 dame nature throws its chilly mantle ever the closing year she tosses to her I favorite daughter the daintiest of all o her gifts, the chinook wind. While the 8 frozen east is wrapt and unwrapt with an coverings of ice and sleet and snow, a Montana at times folds the balmy chi- 0i nook about her and brings the breath of t, ipring where winter should have been. And likewise her winter garb is a royal b arment. Between the films of snowy ace come breezes laden with balsamic tonic of wood and mountain. And the n tummer! Ah, how we .Montainians love a to tell the white-heoated and discouraged asterner of our summer season, of its )leasant days. delightful twilights and ti eool nights, of the even and comfortable c menperature, of its dearth of horrid ti hunder storms -but hold. It is of the . hmnder storm we would speak. How I lnder the sun and by whose authority p id this gruesome thunder storm creep nts the weather catalogue of Montanan? tontaua has worried through many oa rears without this innovation. The old- d t, old timer who came here in the ri earliest of early days will tell you that to never saw half a dozen thunder ai torrus until this year. And yet hardly b, day has passed since July l without a It cod of rain with a consort of thunder nd lightning. What has Montana lone o deserve this presumption on the part if weather kings? Why should the c Ireaded thunder storm invade our ter itory when not wanted? tl Phlvius, a word to you and your side partner Uncle Jerry, or vice vorsa. Remove that thunder storm forthwith. Otherwise you will find yourself in trou ble. We suspect it is a blackmailing scheme, Uncle Jerry, and that you have secured the aid of Pluvius to get a liar rison delegation from Montana, but in any event excuses don't "go." Inci dentally we suggest that you and Plu vius read an entertaining and instruc tive work entitled, "The History of the Vigilantes in Montana." ABOUTI' IPEOPLE.

Chief Engineer Heckler, of the Great Northern Railway, is a very genial roan to meet, but unless he desires to give informa tion for publication it is impossible to draw it out. He was in Spokane,the other day and a Review reporter tried his hand on him with the following result: "Have you anything to say, Mr. Beckler," begap the reporter, "regarding the progress of work upon the line of the Great North ern?" "The first three daysof this week were hot and dusty, the next three days were hotter and dustier, and there were lots of stumps in the road," replied Mr. Beckler. "How nearhave the surveyors approached to this city?" "The nearest point at present is at Al bany Falls upon the Pend d'Oreille river." How is the work progressing generally?" "Very nicely." "What Are the termini of the route as at present contemphlated?" "St. Paul, at the east, and some point upon Puget sound at the west." "Have you anything to communicate in a generai way, Mr. Beckler?" "I am not traveling through this country to give information, but to obtain it. I came to this city not to tell you reporters what I know, but to obtain what informa tion I could respecting your population, your resources, your poaspects, your projects in the smelting, brewing, rilliung and man fnacturing lines: why son of your peoptI prefer to locate their homes in such out-of the-way places as Wickenham, or whatever its name may bhe; where you can offer ad vantageous locations for depot, yard and oar-shop sites, and particularly why you didn't locate this town fifteen miles fur ther up the river, where a railroad might reachnit witn some degrees of readiness." "What portion of the route are r;lenard and Siems at present employed upon?" "That which extends from the Fort Assin boine reservation in Montana to the Co usnbia river." "How much has already been graded?" "About three-fourths." "And how much surveyed?" "Tho oentire route has been gone over, but its exact location has not yet been de termined." "It is not probable that the line will enter this city. Mr. Beckler?" "There are a good many engineering problems to be settled before a conclusion can be reached. Spokane is a much easier place to avoid than to apsproach." "Will it be any more difficult for your line to reach this point than it was for the Northern Pacific and Union Pacifio rail roads?" "'I here is no comparison." "Have you not found the people of this city particularly eager to encourage the ap proach of your hues and ready to accelerate it by all reasonable means?" "The people of S;pokane are certainly live to their own interests. Commumnties, however, never make sacrifices. That prac ice it left for individuals who are Impelled :o it.'" "If the Great Northern comes to this city will it do so upon any other than its own rne?" "Railroads are indisposed to lease their lines to rival corporations. It isn't a good ausinees proposition. If the Great Nor thern conies here at all it will be upon its own tracks, be assured." You Are Mistaken.
