" a uataber -of Helena people _met the seoretary. ie il t ornweresetplon fined to any party, ' abut his presence itins to meet the saowRaur t oaLa. man who has the alai decislon of so many questions s vitally affect the interests of Mon bs Mr. Noble had a kindly greetig o all, and appeared to' appreelate griatly boi cordial reception. An INDsPENDIIT re porter had an opportqnlty to talk with him turing the day, 'and. as h result it can be laid that whatever the regulations may hore been a month ago, now the National park is free to all. In reiponse to the question, "Have the bars been let down on he question of transportation in the Na tionel park?" Mr. Noble said: - "The Yellowstone National park belongs to the people, and it is their right to enjoy it to the full. Private parties can hire teamsa go into the park and camp and enjoy them selves. But if a man desires to make a bue ieaes 9f carrying people through the park, he must first agree tp abide by the rules and regulations made by the department or the government of the busineds. before to can do so. You know I have been ee verely criticised because a stage company allowed or forced a man to walk up a hill, which it is alleged requlted,it his death.- If a stage breaks down and a man has his leg roken I am held responsible. Attimeseom ints have come to me that stage drivers have been insulting to ladies; not in an im moral way, but that they have been mean and have not treated people as they should. As I am held responsible for all these things. I feel that in order to correct any abuses of the kind referred to, I must know who is going to carry people through the park. There is one peculiar thing about the National park: It is not under the control of any bureau of the interior department, but its affairs are directly in sharge of the secretary, and he is forced to look after it himself. "There always have been," continued Mr. Noble, "complaints about the park and its management from park tourists. I remem ber when I had been in my present position about a year I received a letter from Ben ator Vest calling my attention to com plaints arising from the actions of a stage driver and telling me I should see to it that these things were stopped. Senator Vest and myself are very good friends, he is the a.nator from state, and I took great pleas ure in replying to his communication. I wrote him that when I accepted the t osition oi secretary of the interior I had doubts as to my ability to care for the public land business that would come under my oon trol; I doubted my ability to look after the pension business that was transacted in the department; I doubted my ability to prop erly care for the patent bureau; I doubted my ability to oversee the department de voted to geological surveys; I doubted my ability to grasp the problems that would arise for decision in the census bureau;'I doubted my ability to deal in a sntisfactory manner with the questiois arising in the Ihdian bureau. But, I wrotg Mr. Vest, I have met all these problbms and I believe the public is satisfied with the work I have done. I will get out my heavy ordi nance, buckle on an armor of small guns a d wrestle with the stage drivers in the National park. ."I have been subjected to a great deal of criticism," continued Mr. Noble, "and I might say abuse over the Wakelield trans portation matter. The fact is Wakefield was not known in the department and had no contract. What rights he had he -cquited from the hotel company. The latter was losing money on the ,htele and making it up on the transportation. The congreesionial investigation went over these questions. Mr. Gibson came to Washington with the avowed intention'of turning me down in that transportation matter, but I was ready for him long before he left St. Louis. He came east alter wool and went back empty handed. The three new hotels that have been built in the park this year I regard as. much due to joy ezertions as to those of the hotel company. Iheld them strictly to their contract and told them that the time was rapidly pasting in which these hotels must be constructed. Before they had tents and log shabantles, now visitors pay the same and have frst class accommodations. I regret I could not visit the park, but my time is limited as I was ten days late In leaving Washing torn." "My trip to the northwest," continued tbhe secretary, "is simply one of rest ant rearstion, and there is no polities in it. if should tell the people all the Rood things the interior denartment heas ccom plished in the iast three years it might be a good argument for the continuance of tho present administration, but that would take too long. I am more than pleased with Montana and her people and I am sinoerely gratifed with the reception I have received. One thing that strikes me is that in all the smaller towns in the state wheres I have stopped there ates clubs with pleesant quarters, and the people keep pace ith the residents of big eastern cities. Another thine I notlcels that yen folks nil work together when you want anything, without regard to polltrcal lines. Every place I have stopped some new question in regard to lands has come up At Miles Clty they asked me about the removal of the Oheyennes; at Billings it was in rela tion to the Crow allotments; at Livingston the odd-section man interviewed me. While the trip is for rest and recreation, still I am combining pleasurs with busti less and learning a great deal of the needs of Montana. - "What a great state Montana will be with irrigation. She has great rivers he bs can utilize and reclaim thousands of aoes of land now valueless eave for grezing. It was wonderful to me to eme on one side of the road fields of grain that would harvest aity and seventy bushels to the acre and on the other a barren waste, and the difference due altogether to the little treams of water that meandered through the ground on the one side, but did not reash the other. The water in your streams will raise anythin.g, even troat. Yesterday I caught five spekled bauties." (This was said with so much exultation as thonagh vr. Noble were announcing that he had pe suaded Gov. Tools to take the elump.for Harrison, ) "To-morrow I start for the SPqund," con cluded Mr. Noble. "My first stop will be at Spokane, where there is a question In di.sple in regard to senoe ve valuable land. Froa Bpokan I go to Tiaeoma, and bhere the problem to be solved is one in re latlion to the Puyeallup Indians.

Darling Ladies, T'he scorching heat of Alabama was evi dently too much du int the month of July, hence the desire of the ladies and guardian to vislt the northern lakes and see some thing of that great western empire. which, to their gentle and' somewlhat timid dies positions, seemed so far away; while por tions, according to report, were posseased of roving bands of hostile Indiana, road agents, or possibly unexplored. Yea, the visit most be made. 'he heat at Monttomery during mid-summer could not be endured. Why should they fear? those gentle girls, with maiden guardian who had experience and who had traveled quite a hundred miles in her time. 1o they turned their backs on their southern sunny home, that home from which had marched, thirty years before, soldiers who were braver than Omsar'e legions; yes, among the bravest soldiers the. world ever knew. Surely the young ladies come of good stock, hence their pronounced cou'age. The lakes were visited and everything went as smooth as a marriage bell. Proof against the storm they walked the decks to the envy of fe low passengers and the de light of the captain and crew. The Misits sippi was ouseed and their wanderinas westward still continued. their beauty, their elegant maannes and delightful ways charmed all wherever they went. I he trap per would doff his badger skinned cap; the muzzle of the road agent's carbines would fall as he gazed in wonder on the yellow hair of the southern beauties; while the Inditn chieftain wogld sheath his ao'ltinii knife and remain silent, thus hoping to win one smile from the courteous travelers. . Ales, after reaching the city of Helena, the chilly windu of the northwest began to tell. Valenciennes and round point lace fell limp before the fierce winds and frost. Relief came in the way of the good samar itan ladies of the Queen city, who pointed with pride to the New York Dry Goods Store, whe.. an endless variety of rich and elegant far-trimmed jaeekets, capes and caned newmarkets had just been received. Ladis, the New York btore was not only prepared to meet the demands of the visit ors from the south, but their great stock of fall and winter garments is now so com plete that every woman and child through out the entire states can be clad in all styles and at every price (see ad. third page).

President Hill Said to Be Trying to Get Control of the O. R. & N. Railroad. The Northern Paeiflo Willt horten Up its Time between aIt Panlt sid Spokane. The movements of President J J. Hill, of the Grest Northern railway, are being more closely watched than those of any other railroad manager in the United States. Hill hoped when his western extension reachbed Spokane to be able to make a trafllf arrangement with the Union Paolf so he could ran his trati through from St, Pail to the, sound. The Untoed Paeific woeld not agree, however, and has forced Mr. Hill to make other arrangements if he wants to reach Portland this tyear. A dis pateh from Chicago gives an idea of the way in which Mr. Hill is trying to overcome his difficulties. It is to the asiet that he is now in New York, endeavoring to, secure a controlling interest in the Oregon Rail way & Navigation company's line, consist ing of 1,000 miles or more of track between Spokane and Portland. The property is under a ninety-nine years' lease to the Or egon Short Line & Utah Northern rkilway, the controlling interest in whose stock was owned by the Union Pacific. Un der the terms of the lease the Union Pacific guaranteed interest on the bonds of six per cent, inoluding interest on the stock and the expense of reorganiza tion. There are but two ways in which Hill can gain control of the Oregon Rail way and Navigation company's lines. Either the Oreson Short Line or Union has to default under the terms of the lease so as to make that nastrument nugatory or Hill must own the controlling interest in $26, 000,000 of Oregon Short Line stock. The Union Pacific at one time owned $14,000, 000 of this stock, but it is very possible that it may have sold enough to lose its con trolling interest. In either case it would be a comparatively easy matter for Hill to secure control. Such a conclusion would instantly make Hill master of the Northern Pacific coast railroad situation and of both the Union Pacific and Northern Pacific coast terminals. He could also dictate rates to be charged on Pacific coast traffic and annul contracts which now give the Union Pacific almost a monopoly on Port land business. With the transfer of the Oregon Railway & Navigation company there would be a line of steamers plying to every ocean and river port between San Franoisco and British Columbia and river lines covering nearly 1.000 miles of terri tory. C. H. Prescott, of Tacoma, second vice president of the Northern Pacific, referring so this reported move of the Great North emn president, said he was quite sure there had been no default in the payment of div idends, but of the possible hypothecation of stock he knows nothing. He said that the stook of the O. R. & N., when the lease was made in 1886, was $24,000,000, that the inoome since that time had been caused by the extension of Palouse branches made by the Oregon Extension company. He ,said that even if Mr. Hill, could carry out smuch a gigantic scheme it would not give him control of the Portland terminal, for the Union Pacific, Northern Pacific and Southern Pacific were joint owners of the terminal. Mr. Hill's plan. if carried out. would simply admit him to the Portland terminal on the same terms as other roads. Ip Portland the idea that Hill is after the control of the Oregon Railway & Naviga tionisa reatly discredited. D. P. Thomi. son, vice-president and director of the Ore gon Railway & Navigation company, said: "I do not think there is any foundation for the story. So far as I know no transfers have been made, and unquestionably the company still holds the majority of the stock. The company has not forfeited its lease, either. I feel certain there is no truth in the story." It is more than probable that when Mr. Hill arranges his sound connections he will force the Union Pacific either to draw out of Helena or to build into this city. As it is now the Union Pacific has an equal chance with the Great Northern for Helena business. Hill was forced to this, because he needed the Union Pacific in the weat. W hen he can be independent and not lose by it, he will be so. TO SHORTEN THEIR TIME. Northern Pacific Trains to Increase Thelr upeed. It is said by those in a position to know that the Northern Pacific Railroad;oom pnny will soon revise their time card, so far as it relates to through passenger trains between St.Paul and Spokane. This would mean a reduction in the running time be tween the two cities to correspond with the difference now existing between the time made by the Great Northern and the Rorth ern Pacific. The trains of the Great North ern leave hpokane for the east an hour and thirty minutes later than those of the Northern Pacifico and arrive in St. Paul about four and one-half hours earlier than the latter, making a differ nce in favor of the Great Northernof aIout six hours. The speed of the Northern Padfio trains through Dakota and Montana has never been very feat, and this speed could be greatly increased it it were necessary. It is now the purpose of the Nortfiern Pacific to achedule their trains for faster time over that portion of the road in which there are few grades. The effect of this will be a considerable decrease in the running time between terminals. On the 28th inst. the Northern Pacific time card will be revised, for on that date one of the overland trains will be taken ount of service until next spring. Just when the other changes will be made is not known, but it is raid the oflcials of the road have been preparing for some such mrove for months and are ready to make the change at any time.
