The committeo on pollee made a report in regard to that part of Alderman Wiebe-'s neoluticn whioh oalled for a reduction of the jore. The committee reeematinded that the matter be indednltely potponed. They said no one had been appeoited to the vaeanoy caused by the dinlmlees of Alex Barreat. The vaancy on the fores ceased by the promotion of Polioeman Martin to the sergeaner bad not been filled either.

BANK ELECTIONS. Yesterday Was the Day the Nationals Were to Eleet Directers. Yesterday was the day set for all the na tional banks to hold the annual meeting of stookholders to eleet directors and oofficers. All of the Helena banks save the Merchants performed that duty. The etookholders of the Merchants met, but owing to the ab sence of President Herahfield and the ill nes of Vice President Davidson, an ad journment was taken without transaotting any business. Another meeting will be held in about two we eke. At the Montana National there was quite a number of chabanges in the ofloers. The directors elested were: John T. Murphy. R. L. MoCPlloh,b E. B. Weiriok, R. C. Wal lace, D. A. Cory, Peter Larson, A. L. Smith, Henry Bratnober, C. W. Cannon. H. F. Galen, Herman Gane. unbsequently a meeting of the direetors resulted in the eleotion of the following of ficers: John T. Murphy, president; It. L. McCullob~ vioe president; A. L. Smith, eashier; E. B. Weiriok, assistant cashier, The offcers are so well known to the people of Helena and to the state at large that it is almost unnecessary to more than men tion their names. In selecting Mr. Murphy to succeed the late Col. C. A. Broadwater, in the position he so ably and successfully filled, the directore showed rare good judg ment, and by placing Mr. Murphy and Mr. MoCnlloh in the positions they now occupy have joined together in mutual interest the two men named by the founder of the bank in his will, as executors of his estate. The promotions of Messrs. Smith and Weiriok are well deserved. Aside from the experience they have gained as aseistant cashier and teller respectively, of the Montana, their previous careers in the banking business, the former as cashier of the Merehants' bank atGlendive and the latter as cashier of the First National bank of Miles City, have well equipped them for the responsible positions they occupy. It has been known in financial circles for some time that Mr. L. G. Phelps intended severing his conneotlon with the bank, at its annual meeting, which he did. The directors aooepted his resignation with ex pressions of regret and demonstrated their appreciation of his services by spreading upon the records a voluntary and unani mous tribute to his worth and unquestioned ability. The Helena National elected the follow ing directors: S. C. Ashby, Frank Baird, WE. Cullen, Geo. L. Tracy, A. B. Clem ents, M. Reinig, A. J. Steele, Chas. A. Clark. Frank K. Turner, Chas. K. Wells, S. McIntire. L. A. Goddard, H. S. Ford. At a meeting of the directors the follow aI KALISPELL. Kalispell is a young and grpwing city of over 2,000 inhabitants in which the first building was erected in May, 1891. :s tbe-geograpioal center of the Flat bad valley, and a divisional point on the I main line of the Pacific extension of the Great Northern railroad. Several miles of side track, a round hous e, coal yards, and a freight depot have already been built, and a handsome two story brick and stone passenger depot, which when completed, will be the finest on the line of this road west of St. Paul, is now under construction. Steamers plying on the waters of Flathead lake and river rca 'h the head of navigation at Kalis :ell, thus affording transportation facil ities to the Northern Pacific railroad. 'Ih9 construction of a new railroad has been commenced from the mining cen ters of the state to the immense coal fields in the northern part of the Flat head valley, which paw~ing through Kal ispell, will give her cheap and direct communication with Butte, Helena and all points south, and open a ready mar ket for products of the valley, all of which, from her geographical location, will necessarily center at Kalispell; while the natural grades from the m nos and coal fields of the :urrounding coun try, the cheap and unlimited supply of fuel, together with the great water power at her very doors, will make IKal iepell the smelting center of this portion of the tate. It is already tlhes.pply point for the atrmy of minere and pron pectore of erating in the North and South forks and the KlI(olenci min ing regions, and %%ith her three atraun, national balrks,. -ho en have no rival as the I~nancial center of the whole Flathlo tl region.

Williams, of the Sillsbee street Christian Church, Lynn, Mass.: " I see no reason why a clergyman, more than a layman, who knows whereof he speaks, should hesitate to approve an Article of Merit a and worth, from which he or his family have been signally benefited, and whose commend. tion may serve to extend those benefits to fi others by increasing their confidence. My wife has for many years been a sufferer from severe Nervous Headache a' for which sihe found little help. She has tried many things that promised well but per formed little. Last fall a frien gave her a eot tle of Hood's Sarsaparilla. It seems surpris lng what simply one bottle could and did do for her. The attacks of headache decreased in number and were less violent In their inten sity, while her general health has been im-n proved. Her appetite has also been better.

Clark y tB. U. FruLr.Atn Depufor Pliert. h. L Barboor. Attorney for Paintff, THE FLATHEAD VALLEY. The Flathead valley, ten years ago as almost unknown region, the home of the savage and wild beast, to-day is the most productive section of the north. west, yielding per acre double the out. put of Kansas, Iowa or the Dakota; and is the only section west of the Miss. issippi river which can rival the oele. b:a e: Red River Valley of the North in t:'e superior quality of its cereals. It is the only agricultural section in the state o' Montana, where crops can be raised without irrigation. Vegetables of all kinds are grown in abundance, while apples, plums, peaches, cherries, pears, and the small fruits such as strawber. ries, blackberries, goosebe:rtes, raspber ries are being raised successfully. With a ready market for all products of the soil in the rich mineral di-tricts to the east, west and south, the farmers of ths Flathead valley will soon be classed among the wealthiest and most influen tailof thisnew count r. Wheat averages thirty-five bushels per acre, oats sixty bubhels, barley forty bushels, rye thirty bushels, potatoes 400 bushels, cabbage ten tons per acre, rutabagas thirty tons per acre. The Flathead river, with its tribu. taries-the North, South and Middle forks-the Stillwater and Whitefish rivers, with their numerous branches, making a total of over 600 miles of loj. ging streams, all of which converge at Kalispell, flow through vast forests of pine, tamarack, fir, larch and cedar. Under the recent law enacted by con gress these boundless tracts of timber land can be purchased at $2.50 per acre, According to the state auditor's report, of the 103,489,283 feet or lumber sawed in the stite during the year 1891, 100,. 0O0,000 was sawed in M.ssoula county, thus demonstrating this portion of the state's sul.remacy in the lumber in. dustry. In.the northern portion of the valley are hidden vast measures of a superios quality of coal towards which the rail roaes are already building, and the de. velopiment of this resource alone will render this section the Pittsbuag of the northwest. Adjoining these immense bodies of coal lie large tracts of oil land, which give promise of equaling the rich ,petroleum fields of Pennsylvania. Natural gas has also been discovered in this region. Underlying a large portion of the valley, a thirty-foot start um of the finest qual;ty of flie clay is found, which offcrs excep. tional opportu.n:ties for the manufao ture of pottuvry, and affords the brick maker a concent nr and unlimi edl sup. ply for his kiln. Common and pressed brick of a most superior quality have ben made from this clay, and numer ous handsome buildinge throughout the va ley stand as monuments to this in dus. ry. Montana's mineral output, which now surpasses that of any o her s'aRe in the uni" n, will be largely augmen ed by the development of ,he hidden ,reasures in the niounta'n ranges surrounding the Fta head valley. Rich veins of rold, silver a >pper and lead, which h:ave already been discovered, are attraoclng the attention of the capitalists wha have invested largely in mining proper ties thlroughout this section, and a:e tauidly nuuhlnw their develoometah
