That man, with all his boasted per epioacity, is a stupid animal has never been demonstrated more completely than by the action of the pioneers in the western states. Commencing at a period not very re mote the rich, prairies of Illinois were deemed unsuitable for cultivation, and the early settlers fringed the river and creek bottoms with their stumpy and malarial farms, while the school geo graphies were teaching their children that the section now embracing the most fertile portion of Kansas and Ne braska was a great American desert with a Sahara like condition of desola tion. The pioneers who went through the epidemics of ague and milk sickness peculiar to new countries and experi enced the vicissitudes of Indian wars, prairie fires, etc., carefully preserved the very best lands on the upland pratries for those who came later and domesti cated themselves in comfort. The west has been populated by a series of dis coveries. First, that prairie lands would grow crops. Second, that Kansas and Nebraska were not in a desert. Third, that wheat and fruit would flour ish in California. Fourth, that Da kota was the paradise of the grain grower, and fifth, that Colorado was one of the best agricultural states, be cause with irrigation the farmer held the clouds as a personal possession to be controlled at will. Unfortunately for him all these dis coveries were not made until the pio neer, after a life of hardship, was safely and permanently deposited under the daisies. The people of Montana at the present day are trotting the same familiar course. 'They tell with apparent satis faction that this state is unfit for agri cultnre and will never sustain a large population. With many the expression is a source of glee that the existing resi dents are too numerous and must dwin dle because of non-support. They seem determined to occupy the pine coffin of poverty and be mourned by the coyote, leaving the costly trappings of woe to be the solace of their successors. The next great discovery to be made is that in Montana nature has ex hausted her powers in creating a dis trict endowed with every advantage that can be bestowed. The germ of the discovery is alive but will not sprout for the pioneers. The bloom of the flower is reserved to perfume the exist ence of those who waited in comfortable eastern homes for the allotted time. These wise people will secure at almost no cost the despised valley lands. They will put on them a supply of water and proceed to raise crops the like of which no other country can equal. Others in great numbers will follow, values of land will increase with the demand, great cities will spring up, railroads will gridiron the country, wealth rapidly multiply and the new settlers become so engrossed in managing their easily ac quired fortune that they won't stop even to ask where the poor pioneer is buried. Seriously, is it not in the power of those living to break the record of stupidity? Water in Montana is the foundation of everything. We have it in abun dance. Nature otffers to ho'd it in the mountaitc in snow unt i needed for thii. crons. She has built reservoir sites rady for use, slopel, the valleys for canals of cheap construction, put the stone, brick clay and lumieor on nil sides hadlldy. It only de,,is a little money. Shall we seni one or two, or a dlozoll men to New York to get it on individual credit in niggardly dolehs at ton or twenty p,.r cent interest, involving subllsequent monopoly of supply and extravagunt tolls for water, or will the .lgislature at thils session frame a bill which will unito tile credit and resources of all the people to secure capital in abundance at low interest? \Will the pioneers throw aside their prejudices and broaden their minds sulliciently to take hold of this great work and Imake our future secure, or will they trausuit the superb inlieri tance to future comers. Many puerile objections will be raised. lHave we a De Witt Clinton to push them aside and build thie canais? WE are approaching very nearly the time when electricity wiil be mi daily use in all our householdis. A company has been formed in St. Paul for the pur pose of applying electricity especially in the culinary art. Among the art,cles muade by the company is an oven of %..ll seasoned wood, lined with asbestos, 'ov ered with sheet iron. On the top and bottom aire heating plates comnectec with the electric current. The oven har a glass door, andt inside in an incan descent light so that tha.pro~ess of bak. lug may be watohed from without. By means of switche either the top or bottom plates may be heated, or both et once, as may be desired. - The company io also making eleotrio brollers, griddles, skillets, tea kettle. and numerous other utensils. These articles can be used in any' room where there is an electrio wire, and it is claimed that they will do away with the necessity of the range and cook stove. Complete heating sys temes are also furnished by the same company. A great revolution in do mestic economy is near at hand. D])rrnzeNi.s of opinion as to the relative merits, of candidates are all right. Men may honestly disagree in their estimates of other man. The question is, how shall these differences be settled? There is but one way. The men who differ must all come together and the decision of the majority must be accepted by the minority. It a min ority of eight has the right to dictate to twenty-six, a minority of one has the same right to dictate to eight. If such a procedure is now recognized as right, party discipline, united party action, every semblance of party organization will be at an end. It will be a scramble of every man for himself, and the devil will get not only the hindmost, but the entire party. Stand by your organization. Stand by your caucus. Be demoorats! CoLORADo is still sore over the much advertising of Montana's silver statue, and proposes to demonstrate to the world that she also is a silver producing state. Despairing of eclipsing the beautiful symmetry of Ada Rehan's contour, the centennial state commis sion are talking of inviting Col. William Cody, better known as "Buffalo Bill," to pose for the figure of a Colorado pio neer. For shame! Cody is a cowboy of the plains. He is not a pioneer of the Rocky Mountain sort at all. If Colorado wants a figure of this kind we have a thousand cowboys in eastern Montana who wear broader brimmed hats, longer hair, and are not so bow-legged as William, either. It you are going to have that sort of a figure get back to your grand old Kit Carson or John C. Fre mont, but if a more modern subject is desired, what is the matter with the only Tabor arrayed in one of those famous neglige costumes that have im mortalized him and made Colorado famous? THE news that the old Territorial Enterprise, of Virginia City, Nevada, has suspended publication will be heard with regret by the pioneers of the Rocky Mountain region. The enterprise was thirty-two years old, and was the first newspaper published in Nevada. For many years it was owned by the late William Sharon, John W. Mackay, D. O. Mills, and other capitalists. Mr. Mills was one of the owners to the last, and it was upon instructions from him that the publication of the paper was sus pended on Sunday. It is on the Enter prise that Mark Twain, Dan DeQuille, Rollin M. Daggett and other brilliant writers made their reputations. The old Comstock lode is petering out and the suspension of the Enterprise is an indication that there is no expectation of a rosy future for this great district. IF the democratic dead-look is pro tracted until the session ends so as to give Rickards the chance to appoint a republican to the senate, the Lord have mercy on those hapless dark horses who are secretly encouraging members to stay out of the democratic caucus. The wrath of an aroused democracy will be visited upon their heads. So THEY are going to drop the War HIorse and flook to Mantle to test the weak spot in the democratic line. Then we suppose they will move from Mantle to Rickards and wind up with a grand shindy for Carter. All this is an Inter esting programme which is made pos sibly by the mistakes and ambitions of a few democrats. The Engineoering Magazine.
