Could Be Mads by the Success of the Nicaragua Canal. Naw Oiatsase. Nov. 80.-The national con vention in the interests of the Nioaragua oanal opened here to-day. The convention is the outgrowth of a movement Inaugu rated on the Paciflo coast. In response to the desire of the commercial bodies of ban Franoleco. Gov. Markham last March called on tie governors of the various statea to appoint delegates to a convention to bo held at St. Louis to consider means of forwa-d - inS the work under national auspices. That convention suet last June, and before aloe ing arranged for the present convention. The geneal idea is to induoý congress to recognize the canal company be guarantee ing its paper and extending government protection over it to prevent any foreign isterference in its management detrimental to American interests. This course is urged not at the instance of the canal c om pany, which thinks it can raise the necos sarv amount for the construction, $100, 000,000, but on the ground that this country should control its management. A bill to that and is now pending in congress. The total number of delegates present this morning was 386, representing twenty-six statee. 'the convention was called to order by President F. J. Odenthal. of the board of trade, in Odd Fellows hall, which was mag nifoently decorated for the occasion. The American and Nicaraguan colors prevailed. An eagle with outstretched wings united the twain. The orchestra also played the national hymns of the two countries, and a Nicaraguan air arranged for the oconsion was cheered and encored. On the platform were city and state officials, in. cluding Gov. Murphy J. Foster and Acting Mayor Jamison. Hon. George T. Converse, permanent chairman of the St. Louis convention, and Gov. Fleming, of Florida. Dr. D. M. Palmer, of the First Presbyterian church, offered prayer, and President Odenthal gave formal welcome for the board of trade. City Attorney O'Sullivan followed for the municipality and Gov. Foster for the state. Converse replied for the convention. The principal business of the morning was the appointment of the committee on credentials and a recess was taken until their report was prepared. H. H. Smith. of this city, was elected sec retary of the convention. At the afternoon session the reports of different committees ware adopted. All resolutions offered will go to the committee on resolutions without debate. Judge Jones, of Little Rock, de livered a lengthy address, reviewing the canal question from an internationalstand goint. Samuel K. Davis-Special. INVERTMENT STOCKS.

The Flathead valley, ten years ago an almost unknown region, the home of the savage and wild beast, to-day is the most I roductive section of the north. west, yielding per acre double the out. put of Kansas, Iowa or the Dakotas, and is the only section west of the Miss. issippi river which can rival the ogle. b a e I lied River Valley of the North in tue superior quality of its cereals. It is the o ly agricultural s-ction in the state o ilontana, where crops can be r tised without irrigation. Vegetables of all kinds are grown i-s abundance, while apples, plums, peaches, cherries, pears, and the small fruits such as strawtor ries, blackberries, goosele ries, raspber ries are being asired auccessfully. With a ready market for all products of tie soil in the rich mineral di tricts to the east, west a d south, the fariners of th Flathead vallov will sion be classed among Ihe wealthiest and most induen tailof thisnew counir '. Wheat averages thirty five bashols per acrn, oats sixty bushels, barley forty bichel-, rye thirty bushelh, potatoes 100 burph., . cabbs ge ten tons per acte, rutabagas tlhirsy tona per acre. The Flathead river, with its tribu taries -te North, South end MIiddie f rks the Stillwater and Whitefish rivers, with thl ir nume-ous branchei, making a total of over t0) miles of log goug streams, al of which converge at l alispell, flow through vast forests of pine, tamarack, fir, larch and ceodr. Under thb- retent law enucted by con gress these boirudless tracts of timber land can Le purchased at $t50o per acre.
