PASSING EVENTS -Aternating rains and sunshine have brought joy to the heart of the agri cultur'st, and when he is happy all 'Western Montana smiles, for he is the backbone of this end of the state and his prosperity brings good times to ilrs friends in the cities. After a back ward spring, the first calendar week of summer finds the crops in this end pf the state fully up,to schedule and the farmer reports that he is prepared for the handling of the lprgest yield from field and orchard and garden that. this part of the state has ever known.. It has been ideal growing weather for two weeks, and whatever there was of backwardness has van K ished during these days of perfect .-une. Frpm all parts of The Missiu hlan's tor-ltory has come the same re port-that the crops in this section are prime in condition and heavy as to quantity. The estimate which is made of the orchard yield is that the record will be broken into bits by the produc tion this season. Whatever makes for the good of the valley is, mani festly, for the benefit of this city, and a prosperous season In the Bitter Root valley is a good season in the town. It was a past master in boosting who counseled the development of tributary country, saying that the growth of the town would take care of itself if the rural districts thlrive. The relationship between the Bitter Root valley and this city is so intimate that the inter ests of tile one cannot be differentiated from those of the other. There should be complete concord between the two ends of the valley and the splendid -region. which lies between. THE BITTER ROOT--Those who . "have known the Bitter Root longest are the ones who are most enthusias tc i..ln their predictions of the results of this season's farming and orchard ing. It is the veterans who say that the valley never looked so well before and that its yield will be wonderfully good, under normal conditions. The season has been particularly favorable 'and the increase in the tilled acreage Shas been great. There are great crops ; all along the line and a tour of tihe dis trict confirms tile statement that thlis year is revealing new possibilities in the wonderful region to the south of Missoula. There is nothing to offset the optimistic reports that are brought from the valley by whoever goes through it this spring, Old timer and tenderfoot are alike enthusiastic in their praises of the Bitter Root this s pring, and the song of the knocker which has been so pronounced at times in the history of the valley is :utterly lost in the chorus of good cheer which comes flrom the towns along the rive)- and from the farms that are scattered between them. THROUGH TRAINS-One moure step in the perfection of tile Milwaukee system has been taken. The past week brought the first through train over the new line, bound for the coast. This freight was brought in without any flurry and it was taken on west in the same way. Tile new road is doing things in a quiet and business-like way that Is making a good impression. The first through train has been followed by others, and each day finds new improvement ill '* ithe operation of the new system. T.he- coming week will witness the ii auguration of the ilrst through pau songer service over the now road; tills is to be a daylight run for awhile un til the line is ready for nigilht running in safety. The record that has been :.,tmade, in the inauguration of the serv ice on the Milwaukee east of here is S.bhat there has not been a passenger Injured on any of the new trains, and great care will be exercised in running 4 .through the mountains to see thlat this Secord is continued. The sale of town )o.: ts: in the Missoula county town of ,.lbelrton will bring a passenger trailn rom Butte, which will be practically " lhe flit service over tills division. A w da.'s liater the regular runs will b'e started, iaid the yellow oars w'ill V gome regular visitors in the city, r2 coming hala beta oft delayed. lot It seems now that the train which we expected to welcome last Fourth of July will surely be here this year. It will be none the less cordially' wel coined than if its advent had not been delayed by flood for a year. THE MAYOR'S CALL-At the call of Mayor ,.ogan there will be a tneet ing at the court house Monlday night for the consideratlon of tihe ilmor tant I atterl of thel constructiolll of i. sewer system for the south side of the river. This is a matter of vital eilt port ill the development of the city, and the mayor is justified in his desire that there sholld )be a goo)d attend tnce of south side peolei to discuss wilth the members of the council the questionl of the sewer system, its ex tent and the best mlanner of construc tIon. Upon the details of this mutter there nlust bie complete ugrnlelnt on the part of the people of the south side before there ctn be any step taken towattrd the prIactical work. It is useless to discuss in generalities the necessity, which exists for such a sys temn on the other side of the river; there Iust be an understanding as to what is wanted and how to get it; in less this is reached there can be noth ing done. It is Iit the endeavor to fo its sentliltelnt and to bring aboullt lan agreement that I Mayor Loganl hln.s called the meeting. 1 Unless tile pe,)ile on the south side get together in this matter they have no right to critl elze the city admintistratlio for failure to act. JUDGE WITTEN-'TI(tuorrow night, barring nccldent, Judge Witteno. super intendenlt of tile reservation openilng, will be in the city to look over the field antd to arrange plrelliniuarle. Judge Witten's visit here will do Intch to sitmpllfy the slttution; hi is ex perienced in the maatter of reservation crowds and hIls atdvtie will be of great ttenellt to those who are oelteavorinlg to see that the registratiom crowd 1a well cartted for u.nttl o.lnlfortably housed. It is evldent that. siom aidditionial preliparation will bie nlesslaty if the visitors are to be I taile comllllortablei during their sleeping hoim'S. Judge Witten will probably be able to give a mlorl'e auculrate estllimate thltll any buody else ts to how nmuch of this pro vision IImIust lie Inuade and htow best to make it. Dl)rihng Ills stay in Missoula tile judtlg) will have to Ianswer t gootld mattly questions. We wan\'t to do the best we canl, anlid \ve tre glad of the pplilorttunity it get expert counsel.
