ABRAHAM LINCOLN. May that day never come when this country shall cease to take reverential notice of the birthday anniversary of Abraham Lincoln. He was the type of American citisenship which embodied the highest ideals and the loftiest aims which are contained in our conception of what constitutes membership in this union. His life was given for his country, for the country which he was spared long enough tot bind together in a union so firm that it can never be shaken again. In the record of his life and work there is much that can and should be taken in practical application to the affairs and the conditions of today. Lincoln's most dangerous toes were not those who tougnt him openly upon the bat tlefield; they were the Insurgents-if you please-who assailed him at home, striking him from behind. They were the country's most dangerous enemies then as they are now. Lincoln's great heart and great mind were capable of treating them with a degree of patience and forebearance that would not been possible in a man of smaller caliber. He conquered them because he ad hered strictly to what he felt was right and refused to depart from the lines of justice and patriotism that he had laid down for his own guidance and for the shaping of the destinies of the na tion whose affairs had been placed in his hands. Lincoln wrought along na tional lines; so must every statesman who would accomplish good for his country. Local Issues must be for gotten. selfish interests must be put aside. The example of Lincoln Is the great pattern for us to follow today. THE APPLE SHOW. It was a jear ago this week that the Montana State Horticultural society suggested the Western Montana Apple show and asked that Missoula take up the matter an darrange for an autumn exhibition of the fruits and vegetables of this section of the state. Last year Missoula carried out the suggested plan in a manner that won the ap proval of those interested. This year plans have been formed for a repetition of the show, and Missoula hopes for the cordial approval and co-operation of the state society which meets next week at Plains. The apple show is for western Montana; its scope is not local; It is a boost for the whole fruit growing district, and Miasoula hopes that it will be a better and bigger boost this year than it was a year ago. GETTING IN EARLY. While the cities of the Pacitlc coast are quarreling as to which shall hold the exposition in celebration of the completion of the Panama canal, Tampa, on the Florida coast, has taken time by the forelock and is holding a carnival in honor of the progress that has already been made in the construc tion of the big ditch. The Atlantic city has stolen a march on its western slaters, and is right in the head set in the Panama celebration business. Ordinarily accounted slow, this south eastern city has developed speed that calls for a revision of the estimate that has been made of its character. It should be borne in mind, however, that our own Charlie Hall is sojourning in the Tampa country this winter; this may account for the speed. ANOTHER BIRTHDAY. Today is the anniversary of another birth. In his cell in the asylum for the criminal insane, Harry Thaw to day passes the fortieth milestone in his Itfe journey. We have been inclined to tbina of Thaw as a boy, the sowing of whose wild oats brought him to the agoge plight ia which he finds him sa tbut be bad carried the season of uowing aloeng through years until it merged suddenly into the harvest time. And that harvest he reaped. Thaw receives visits from his mother and sisters as frequently as the rules of his prison permit, but the visits of his wife have ceased, and it is said that the estrangement between them is complete. What a life and what a lesson it teaches! The first 4.000 of the Fiathteal fluky ones have a great mail business the(e days. They are adding materially to the volume of letters passing through the Missoula postoffice. In the contest between the ethics of the senate and the dignity of the su preme court, we find an example of an Irresistable force striking an im movable body. "For Western Montana" is the motto of the Missoula Chamber of Commerce and it is hoped that other towns Weill be willing to enlist under the bahner. "Let us have faith that right makes might, and in that faith let us dare to do our duty as we understand it." -Abraham Lincoln, Feb. 21, 1859. There Is this lesson, aso, in the life of Lincoln: He was jovial, not mo rose, and found relaxation ih making others, happy. It is also well enough to bear in mind that Abe Lincoln didn't wear creases in his pants and didn't affect noisy hosiery. In England, the labor party is tak Ing the fall of the play to an extent that presages another general elec tion soon. The necrology of the Swope femily indicates that the Grim Reaper had an active assistant, whoever he was. A good point to remember this morn ing Is that it was his honesty that made Abe Lincoln great. Furthermore, it is a matter of record that Abraham Lincoln got along with out smoking cigarettes. Governor Haskell, on the other hand, finds his chief difficulty in keeping out of the limelight. The chamber of commerce is work ing hard; are you helping the move ment? Another bulletin is due from Gov ernor Spry of Utah in tie prisefight matter. The Nicaraguan revolution is re markable in that it seems to be a real war. There's no banking today; this gives most of us one more day of grace. Easter also joins this year in the movement for an early spring. The Jekyl side of Dr. Hyde has not yet been turned toward us. * Remember the Red Apple banquet. Boost with the Boosters. Join in the Big Boost. INEXPENSIVE SCHEME FOR BLIIDING ROADS Kalispell, Mont., Feb. It.-(Specal.) -If plans and diagrams sent by the surveyor of Flathead county to the department of the Interior today are approved, there will he little expense attached to the building of highways on the Flathead Indian reservation. At the time the reaistrations were made it was proposed by public spirited citizens of Kalispell that the surveyor be Instructed to lay out a olut of the road aing natural courses of travel and that plats be sent in for approval before any of the land passed into private ownersoip. If they are approved, it is thought the saving to Flathead county' will amount to $20,000 or inure, as otherwise many rights-of-way would have to be bought or the highways would be compelled to follow sention lines over hills and streanis, which could be made passable only at great cost. In the Flathead valley the county has contended with that condition and many thousands of dollars bove been spent in pur-hausig I rights-of-way and In grading along routes that had not been set aside for ro e'.

Co- ptration in certain directions between the Ameri can and British Antartic expeditions was suggeEted in correspondence bhe tween Commander Peary and Captain Robert F. tHott, which waa given out here tonight.

Fe. 11.-(tape elal.)-A deciclon which will prove of great lmportance in land litigation In Texas. where sunny titles depend on grants maeri by the Spanish ftrown, was handed down by Assoecate Justice If. H. Neil of the fourth court of civil appeal of this city. The case in which Jose Maria lucre, et t figured as plaintiffs and J. C. Hovel, et el ac de fendants, was decided on the prine clple that the owner of land acquired ih title through an old grant Ie not obliged to account for the depotcitory of the original title deeds, except that he emust keep then In a plnee where' they are naturally expected to be. The title In question was granted to Rodriguez Flores, accestor of the cecn plalinant and one of the original set tiers of can Antoniao In 1778, by ligron de Rlpperdc . then governor of the' province, now in the cnter of the city. When suit was brought in a lower court for the property the original doecuenet was produced. but an ad verse decision was rendered for the reaone that It had been kept in the office of the county clerk Instead of the proper archives where the docu ment could be subject to scrutiny. An appeal cicde hall the result above noted. The technical ceentntion of the higher court was that the fact oft the document being admieslble as evi. dence in the case, negatived the re sponsibility of its beneficiary to ne count for it, and that there wastt ne; rule or law requiring the party offer ing It as evidence to account for its keeping as long as It was kept In the proper depository. FOUR MILLIONS VOTED FOR AID OF VICTIMS Parise ec, T.-IThe chamber of dep. utles has unanimously voted the $4, 000,000 for the ald of the flood vie. time, which has bedn asked by the cabinet. The vast financial scale of the re-I lief plans may be judged from the fact that the government contemplates loans amounting to $20,000,000, 75 per cent of which will be upon personal seecurity and the balance upon real estate. The cost of the guarantees of these lcins will be divided by the government between the municipal Ities, the credit institutions and the chambers of cocmeerce.
