As soon as Mr. Kennedy has the plans finished, we will go ahead with the building." Cliff Rittenour was in town yesterday on business. Mr. Rittenour had the enthusiastic description A BIASED of Plains to give to his OPINION. inquiring friends and he had a lot of them almost ready to pack up and gO down the valley where everything is alto gether lovely all the time. Plains is a nice place and has many advan tages; great crops are raised there but there is nothing about Plains that Is higher class than her boosters; they are the real things. But there Is no place on earth that is perfect, not even Plains, and that it has its .little weaknesses is evidenced by the con tents of a slip of paper that Mr. Rit tonour folded up and put in his pocket to take home with him. In the course of his tour of the city, he dropped in at the grocery store where he used to work when he lived in Missoula. He was cordially greeted, of course, and he proceeded to look around the es tablishment. On the wall he spied a placard that caught his eye and fur ther captivated his fancy. He copied its legend upon the piece of paper that he carried home with him; he said he wanted to show it to a man he knew in Plains. This is what he wrote on the paper: And now the honest farmer packs Hils apples for the town.

Asked as to the result I of Senator Dixon's dec- I laration that he will not be in the cabinet, Senator Donlan said: "It will not make any difference with the gossips; they will talk just the same as they have been, but I am sure that Mr. Dixon's declination is final and that he has no thought of resigning. I stated this positively in an interview at Helena when the talk first started, and I have not had any other view at any time." Joe Woodford, after years of wan dering in Alaska, Idaho and other foreign parts, has re WOODFORD turned to Missoula and RETURNS. it is said that he is here to stay. lie was busy yesterday renewing acquaint ances, and he made a start on the routine of calls upon his old friends; but there are so many of these friends here that it was not possible for him to get around to all of them in one day, and those who were missed yes terday are expecting a visit today or tomorrow.

I like Missoula, too, but the Bitter Root is home and I am not to be blamed If I regard the sun shine in the valley as a little bit brighter than it is anywhere else.

NATURALIZATION LAW IS EXPLAINED CHIEF EXAMINER SMITH SPENDS DAY WITH LOCAL COU'RT OFFICIALS. John Speer Smith of Seattle, chief naturalization examiner, arrived in Missoula yesterday from Butte, where he examined a class of 37 aliens seek ing admission to citizenship in the United States. Mr. Smith came here for the purpose of holding the same examination, but owing to the absence of Judge F. C. Webster, this event was postponed until a later date. In discussing the nature of the work in which he is engaged Mr. Smith stated that owing to the great changes which had taken place in the natural Ization laws of thO country since 1906, it had become incumbent upon the government to be represented at each examination of applicants for citizenship. The present naturalization law, which was passed in June, 1906, and became effective in September of the same year, requires a more rigid examination of the applicant than was thought necessary under the for mer law. Until the latter law was repealed, by the enactment of the new code, the applicant, after having been a resident of this country a certain period, appeared before the district judge and declared his intention of becoming a citizen of this country. A the expiration of a period of five yeras more he made application for the second set of papers, which were granted upon recommendation of two witnesses. in the case of an alien ar riving on American shores\ before reaching the age of 18 years it was only necessary that he live in this country five years, when he could take out all papers at one time, with out the formality of declaring his in tention of tbcoming a citizen. Under the present law all these conditions have been changed and a minor Immi grant is subject to the same rules of naturalization as an adult alien. Upon declaration of his intention of becoming an American citizen, pa pers are made out for the applicant 'n triplicate, one to be forwarded to the Washington department, one to the district court and one to be kept on file in the office of the clerk of 'he court. A notice is immediately nosted in the office of the clerk for public perusal, announcing the dec iration, and naming a date when the -amination of the applicant will be wld. All persons are advised pub 'ioly that if they know cause, or Just reason why the applicant should not be received into full American citizen Thip it is their duty to appear before the chief examiner on the date named for examination and declare their ob Jections. The Missoula examination will be c-lil in the course of a few weeks by lthe assisting examiner, who will an 'unnce a ldate when he can meet with Tmleo Webster for that nurpoee. Examlner Smith, whose territory ex tendsl over the entire states of Mon tana. Oregon, Idaho and Washington, 'eaves this morning for Helena and points in eastern Montana.

Helena, Jan. 30.-The senate com mittee on corporations, other than municipal, listened today to reasons why the Meyer bill, providing for the pensioning of coal miners, should not become a law, and also arguments in Its favor.
