Land Agent Granville Stuiart's ·a. amlniations of the yalleys in Western Montnla. b0iler Inspeobor ayton Says There Were Nor Niplbulolon Last Year. Two Fatal Aeldident and hour Persons sai.ndl for Life by Ma ' . iphlnery In 1891, State Land Agent Granville Stuart has made his annual report toO v. Toole,pre. Ident of the board of land commissioners. .It is quite lengthy and severs the agenit' examination thoroughly. He gives the fol lowing figures on land donations made by congress: Shool of mines, 100,000 aeres; state normal school, 100,000 acres; agricul tural college, 140,000 acres; reform school, 50,000 sores; deaf an dumb asylum, 50,000 soreal public buildings, 182,000; mqking a total of 662,000 acres. In 1881 the govern meat gave to the territory of Montana seventy.two sections amounting to 46,080 acres. Agent Stuart gives in detail the re suit of his several trips throughout the state. In the swan river: obuntry near Flathead lake, thirty-six seootions have been selected. In the upper end of the Flathead valley, west and northwest from Columbia Falls, which is mostly forest, three town ships have been selected. He next visited the remaing portion drained by Whitofish and Stillwater creeks, finally gointg up the latter where he came tcroms several small lakes, eontaining many trout and salmon, Next he crossed a small glacier and reached the Tobacco river, a tributary of the Koo tenai which joins it at the lower end of To basco plains. The valley through which he passed was rolling and grassy, bounded on the east by the steep and lofty snow-clad Kootenai range and extending north across the British line. The vegetation in the spring was two weeks further advanced than in the Flathead valley dad the olimate drier and warmer, with much less snow in the winter. The elevation is between 2,400 and 2,500 feet. Mr. Stuart went down the Kootenai river for seventy-five miles, which for almost that distance flows in a deep and narrow canyon between walls of horizontal strata of quartzite. He saw no 'indications of mineral in this canyon, and very little good soil, but considerable quan tities of valuable yellow pine, tamarack and fir timber. Next he went up Fisher creek fifty miles to Pleasant Valley. Two miles above Demersville he found twenty-five or thirty houses at a place called Kalispell, where only two weeks before his visit there were but two cabins. At this time. May last, he recommended the survey of seven additional townships in the Flathead valley. The valley of Clarke Fork is filled with many saw mills, which have culled out the most valuable trees to the base of the mountains. From Thompson Falls to the Idaho line the valley has been burned out -by disastrous forest fires, which have de stroyed millions of dollars worth of tim ber. The heat was so intense that it burned the leaf mould soil down to the clay and gravel subsoil. Mr. Stuart be lieves that this damage to the land cannot be repaired in less than twenty-five years. Mr. Stuart also made a trip 'up the Koo tenai river, which is navigable above and below the falls. He next visited the Mie souls valley, from Frenohtown to Iron Mountain station, on the Caeur d'Alene branch of the Northern Pacific railroad. The valley is narrow and tortuous. It is nearly all good land, and occupied by squat ters. Shortly after the abandonment of Fort Shaw Mr. Stuart made an examination of the reservation. It contains 40,000 sares, of which 30,000 acres consists of choice agricultural land, the remaining portion being fine grazing land. Over one-half of the reservation is covered by an irrigation ditch constructed and used by the mili tary. Nearly all of the remaining portions of the reservation is covered by a large canal taken out of Sun river. The total land selections of the state up to date amount to 589,120 acres, but it can not be known how much will be secured by the state until after it is surveyed and ex amined.

He was where he was entitled to be at Gettysburg with the vanguard of troopers harraesing and checoking the enemy while the infantry supports were yet miles away, and his were the men opening the memorable three days' bloody confliot.

The deepest coal mine in the northwest is that at Lethbridge, N. W. T., from which the celebrated Galt coal is taken. The workings are now down 1,460 feet, and the result is a quality of coal not surpassad anywhere in the country. All the coal is carefully screened and sorted before it is shipped and when it is put on the market it is beyond criticism. A great quansity of the Galt coal is consumed in Helena, and the local agents, the Helena Lumber com-r pany, report a constantly increasing de mand. The Galt coal is clean, burns a long while, doss not clinker and makes few ashes. It is considered by hundreds of families and consumers generally the best ever offered to Helene people. The recent reduction in the price of the lump coal has added materially to the sales. For cook ing, heating and steam purposes the Galt cannot be excelled.

The Department Gralits the Wishes of People Near the Depot. Hlereafter They Can Transact any Inesness With the 2Halls Withput Coming Up.town to Do It, The residents of the Sixth ward will be hqppy when they learn that in the near fu flutue they will have all the faollitles of a frst-olass postoimce without traveling all the way up town. Chief Inspector F. . Bedell yesterday received telegraphio noti fioation from Washington that the petition for the establishment of a brano offos near the Northern Paoiflo depot had, upon his recommendation, been granted. The branch will be known as Station A, and will be located in the Tietjen block, on Helena avenue. It will be ready for bus - iness as soon as the necessary fixtures can be put into the place. The offoe will be in charge of a superintendent, who wll have one assistant. For a long time the merchants and resi dents of the Sixth ward have felt that it was a hardship to have to travel all the way from the Northern Pacific depot to the postoflies in order to get a money order, or register a letter, or transact any other busi ness connected with the mails. A numer ously signed petition was gotten .up asking to have a branch office located near the depot. The matter was referred to Judge Bedell, who went over the ground carefully and came to the conclusion that the de mand was a perfectly reasonable one. He obtained the owner's figures on the room in the Tietjen block, and reported to Wash ington thdt fact, together with a recom mendation that the petition be granted. In his report he said that the people near the Northern Pacific depot were a mile and a half from the postoffice. There were a large number of business houses and about 1,500 population nearcthe depot. In order to avail themselvesof the money order and registry departments of the postoffice, the residents there were obliged, at the lose of much time and expense, to travel all that distance up town. The dispatch granting the petition shows, that the recommenda tion had its effect. The room in the Tistjen block, in which Station A is to be located, is twenty feet wide and fifty-one feet and six inches deep. The lease authorized from Washington is to date from Jan. 1 last and to run five years. The lessee is to furnish the equipment, with fire proof safe, heat and light. When established there will be no occasion for any one near the depot to come up town on postoffiee business. At the depot station they can obtain stamps, stamped envelopes, money orders and postal notes. They can mail letters there for all parts of the world and can have their mail served there orde livered from there. For the present the mail intended for residents of that part of the city covered by or served from Station A, will go to the main office in the Masonio building, and there be separated and sent down to the depot branch for distribution. Mail from Station A for outside points will go direct to the trains without passing through a, main offioe. But when the railway .,. i service gets thoroughly acquainted wit, the fact that there is a branch office n the depot, it, is possible that th a..esa" Clerks on inbound trains will receive in structions to put all matter destined for Station A into a separate pouch. This poueh will be then taken direct to the new station, and thus save probably two hours time that would otherwise be consumed in bringing the mail from the 'depot to the main office, distributing and separating it. and taking back that intended for the Sixth ward. Of course railway mail clerks can not be expected to know all the streets and localities in the depot district, but mer chants and residents of that locality can remedy such a matter by having their mail addressed to "Station A, Helena." The postofilce departient has shown a very liberal spirit in dealing with this mat ter. The additional help required at the station is allowed by the postal authorities, so that the main office will not suffer any lose of clerical force, and will besides be relieved of much work that is now done there.

It Is Proving a Very Popular Article in Montana. A month or so ago Daniel Hanley & Co. were made the Montana agents of the North Dakota Milling company, of Grand Forks, for their celebrated Diamond brand of flour. They immediately began to in troduce it, and so Fopular has it become with consumers that since Jan. 1 they have placed in the state a number of carloads. It is a Forey patent floor, and is giving better satisfaction than the most popular brands of Minnesota flour. If the demand growe as it gives evidence of doing, the Diamond brand will soon displace all other foreign flours in the Montana market. T. C.
