The Dental Law.
To THE INDEPENDENT: In regard to the
dental law that is soon to come before the
legislators of the state of Montana; out of
the laws of thirty-two states now having
dental laws, this is the best of all for all
concerned. That it is an important law for
the people can be readily seen from the
fact that thirty-two states already have a
similar law, making Montana a dump
ground that catches students and so-called
dentists that cannot practice in states hav
ing laws regulating the practice of den
tistry. At the same time this law is no hoc
law, like the laws of two sister states, for it
gives a competent dentist a right to prau
tice if he has brains enough, whether he
holds a diploma or not. I have
Iraetiesd dentistry under a law nearly
the same in New York state
twelve years, and have seen the quality of
dental work improve every year sinoe that
law was passed in 1879. nd during that
time more than 100 quacks have been given
the privilege of quitting the practice of
dentist y or quitting the state to locate
where there were no dental laws.
Now, I would say to the legislators of
Montana, if you want quacks to care for
your teeth, or rather the money they get
out of you. veto this law; if you want your
teeth cared for properly, pass this law and
you will do more for the people's comfort
than you could do in any other way.
Jorns V. COLE, Dentist.
The Biounty Law.
To TIHE INDEPENDENT: I beg leave to em
phbasize through your valuable paper the
importance of a new law in regard to the
bounty on wolves and coyotes. A few dave
since, I was riding through the timber
about twelve miles north of Helena in
search of stock, when I heard the yelping
of a vack of coyotes that seemed to be set
ting ne4ror every minute. Just then I
emerged from the th:ck timber into a small
open s;,ace or park, as it is called, and al
most at the same moment a bay mate en
tered the park directly opposite me, fol
lowed by a sorrel colt, perhaps a week old.
Close behind the colt came twelve or fifteen
laige coyotes. Being unarmed I could ren
dle no assistance and the coyotes finally
overtook the colt, pulled it down and pro
ceeded to devour it.
Now, if this sort of thing is going on so
near a thickly-settled region, what must be
the state of affairs where the country is
more sparsely settled, as is the case with
the et ckrasiing regions of this state. Our
state legiialatnre. now in session, shouldgive
this matter their special attention and be
fore adjournment they should pass a law so
that wolves and coyotes should be extermi
nated, and the stock interests of the state
