THE WORK OF THE THIRTEENTH
There are varying opinions as to the value of the work of
the Thirteenth assembly. We have read in some of the
newspapers of the state the assertion that it was all good.
From other sources, we have heard that it was all bad. Some
of our non-committal contemporaries have gone boldly on
record as saying that some of the work was good and some
of it was bad. As a matter of fact, there are not many per
sons in the state who have much of an idea as to what the
Thirteenth really did, aside from wrangling a whole lot and
wasting much time in mimic warfare. The record is not yet
complete.
At the capitol, state officers and clerks are busily engaged
in getting the results of the session into definite form. We
understand that there exists the usual chaotic condition
relative to much of the work which was done during the last
mad rush. For a couple of days, at least, two important bills
were lost entirely. We do not know whether they were
ever found or not. During the last two days of the ses
sion there were amendments concerning which not much
is known by others than those who tacked on the amend
ments. It is reported, unofficially, that there was some
juggling with the commission-government bill on the last
night of the session. Nobody seems to know whether this
is a correct report or not.
This morning, in its news columns, The Missoulian prints
the first of a series of articles which will summarize the bills
passed by the legislature, giving briefly the provisions of the
measures. This summary will of necessity be brief on
account of the large number of bills passed, but it will be
sufficiently detailed to give a clear idea of the general pro
visions of each measure.
The Missoulian has assigned to this work in the capitol a
man who is experienced in this line of work and who is
giving careful attention to the matter in hand. We believe
the articles will be found interesting and helpful; they will
enable the people of the state to learn just what was accom
plished by the assembly in sixty days. There will be no dis
cussion of the measures-the summary will merely present
in outline the purpose and provisions of each bill.
The day after the adjournment of the session, The Mis
soulian printed a list of the bills which had been passed and
sent to the governor, but this was merely a list of the titles;
it was valuable at the time, but it was not as complete as
will be the articles of the present series. These current
articles will be found valuable for preservation. The first
installment, given this morning, gives the provisions of the
public-utilities bill. This will be found specially interesting.

Marking the Alaskan
Boundary
By Fredreric J. Haskin.
lVhn ti', United atates purchased
.\Alsta fr'ml tRuissut it was believed
that there in\eir clilld arise between
it ad Great lBritain a dispute over
the boundary between the territory
tand British ('iolultbia,. The boundary
was fixed ndetr a treaty, made in 1825,
Iibetlweoe RuII'ssia and Great Britain, one
end ot it to c',onsist of the 141st me
ridatll. and the other end to he con
stituted l. lit t line drawn across the
smiimrilit if several mountain peaks,

Sgovernllmnnt enstrltedit a tvhgra irl
koverland to Dawson, Swhile Uthe inted
States laid a cable from Seattle to
SHitka and a tolegraph line to Valdez
t and Fort Eghert. It was then that
Alaska became worth considering, and
the United States and Great Britain
pointed to different mountain peaks as
those referred to In the treaty of 1825,
- with the result that the treaty creat
ing the tribunal of London followed
apace.
t The real owork of marking the Alas
kan boundary, under the directlon of
Ithe Alaskan boundary commission, fel
upon the shoulders of Thomas Riggs
Jr., the American engineer in charge
and his associates, while Canada had -
similar party in the field working it
conjunction with them. i.Mr. Riggs wal
no "new" man when he w'ent to Alaski
to help tie a ground boundary to the
stars, and to fix it so permanently ant
so definitely that even though moun
tains were to remove themselves into
the sea and valleys were to rise up intt
the hills, that boundary would still bt
fixed. He had "hit the trail" wher
gold was discovered in Alaska, and had
wrested with,the -transportation prob
lems upon whose solution depends the
opening up of this virgin empire of
natural wealth.
The work of marking the Alaskan
boundary will have cost the United
States approximately three quarters of
a million dollars when it is finished
next year. It represents some of the
best boundary work in the world, and
the 600-miles section of it, reaching
from dMount St. Elias to the Arctic
ocean, is the world's longest exactly
surveyed straight line. The southern
part of this line had to be run across
mountains covered with perpetual
snows and over glariers'of eternal ice.
But as the work progressed northward
the elevation became lower, and from
the White river to the Arctic there is
a brief summer season free from ice
and cold, and a region where game on
the land and game in the water abound
in profusion--white sheep in unnum
bered thousands, wide-antlered moose,
caribou and bear--and where, in the
words of Dr. Riggs, 'greyling are not
caught with hook and line, but are
kicked out of the wateir.
The boundary is being marked by
cl aring off all timber for a distance
of 10 feet on either side. At points al
ways within sight of one another
aluminum-bronze monuments are set
up to locate the exact position of the
line. At important river crossings and
along highways of travel these monu
ments are five feet high, and are em
bedded in a ton of concrete; at less
important points monuments three feet
high, planted in 1,500 pound concrete
bases, are set up. These points are
geodetically determined, or located, by
the stars. They will serve as the basis
of all future surveys.
WVhile the line was being run the to
pographers were at work with their
plane-tables, plotting the country
around. They climbed up to the tops
of mountain peaks where they could
get a good view of the surrounding
country, and recorded on their plane
table sheets the elevations, the drain
age, and even the character of the
timbhr. A line of precise levels was
run by which the elevation above the
sea of any given point could be deter
mined. The resulting maps are said to
be about the best example of the sur
veyor"s art that have been made on
any houlndarv.
The difficulty of running a long line
was perhaps greater than any encoun
te-red in recent history. For over 200
miles across perpetual snow and
lpriimeval glacieirs, the supplies of the
surv\'eling larty had to beh carried on
the batcks of horses. T.o miles an
hour ural six hours a day represented
good progress. U'lpon ole occasion it
took the p'ck train 23 gy's to travel
less than 200 miles, and of the 75
horses with which it started, only 24
reached their destination.
In the summner the mosquitoes were
often so bad that mosquito netting and
bandana handkerchiefs were a neces
sity, and the horses had to be cov
ered from head to tail and from ear to
hoof before they could graze In the
open. But in winter huge fires had to
be built to thaw out things, the pack
ers' fingers were frozen, and hardship
and danger were the rule, and comfort
and pieace the exception.
Tragedies occurred every now and
then. The body of a poor ex-dog
driver of the northwestern police was
found in the river. tipon the assem
hling of a stump coroner's jury, the
Canadian coroner declared the evidence
showed that the holy was found on
the Alaskan side, and, therefore, he
was without jurisdicVtion, and so it fell
to, the lot of the Americans to fashion.
a eoffin out of storehoxsis and bury the
dwg-driver In a shabll,iw grave. Two
sur\veyors overtaken liy a snowstorm,
sought shelter in a little vacant cabin
by breaking into it. They read that
the. oeupant had left in June and
would hI haIck in Sepltiember. ,Later a
blroken, raft on a lig.jain, a piece of
turn tent and a rusted rifle told the
story of the nlen who never came back.

This Home-.Made Cough
Syrup Will Surprise You
Stop UEven Whooplng Cough
Quickly. A Family Supply
at Small Cost.
HTere is a home-made remedy that
takes hold of a cough instantly, and will
usually cure the most stubborn case in
24 hours. This recipe makes a pint-
enough for a whole family. You couldn't
buy as much or as good ready-made
cough syrup for $2.50.
IMix one pint of granulated sugar with
% pint of warm water, and stir 2
minutes. Put 2% ounces of Pinex (fifty
cents' worth) in a pint bottle, and add
the Sugar Syrup. This keeps perfectly
and has a pleasant taste-children like
it. Braces up the appetite and is slightly
laxative, which helps cund a cough.
You probably know the medical value
of pine in treating asthma, bronchitis
and other throat troubles, sore lungs,
etc. There Is nothing better. Piner is
the most valuable concentrated compound
of Norway white pine extract, rich in
guaiacol and all the natural healing pine
elements. Other preparations will not
work in this formula.
The prompt results from this Inexpen
sive remedy have made friends for it in
thousands of homes in the United States
and Canada, which explains why the
plan has been imitated often, but never
successfully.
A guaranty of absolute satlsfactlon, or
money promptly refunded, goes with this
recipe. Your druggist has Pinex, or will

meridian did 'not have all grim and
dark in their lives. When they reached
Rampart House with a steamboat car
rying horses, the Indians could not be
lieve their eyes. Could there be a hun
dred white men in the world? Was the
smoke - and - steam - spouting monster
riding up through the rapids a creature
from another world? When the horses
were turned out into the open to
stretch their legs and roll on the turf,
all the dogs of the village turned tail
and fled to the hills, there to remain
for days. The Indians took to their
huts and barred their doors, and for
two days whispered about the strange
hornless caribou.
Once the engineers encountered an
epidemic of smallpox among the In
dians. Their possessions had to be
burned, amid heartburnings and pro
tests. Each Indian has to be washed
with antiseptics, and vaccine had to be
brought into play. The situation de
manded action of the most rugged kind,
and it was forthcoming, with the result
that what might have been an epidemic
reaching to the uttermost ends of in
habited Alasika, was nipped in the bud.
The surveyors became a law unto
themselves, and within a radius of a
hundred miles a system of rigid inspec
tion and vaccination was enforced.
And so the boundary was established.
With every man a hero, living every
day more stories than Kipling and
Zogbaum could invent, perhaps not one
of them could entertain an audience as
well as a third-rate lecturer, for they
were men of action rather than of
speech. When the story of Alaska is
written there will be many pages de
voted to the self-sacrifice and devo
tion of those who endured hardships
and faced dangers as great as those of
the most sanguinary battle.

GREAT NORTHERN MEN
ARRIVE IN KALISPELL
Kalispell. March 12.-(Special.)
Much interest is attached locally to
the arrival this morning of a party of
(Great Northern officials. Included in
the party were Vice President J. M1.
G(ruher. General Manager GC. 1I. lan
erson, General Superintendent (. ().
Jenks. Freight and Passenker Agent
J. T. MclGaugherty of Helena, who ar
rived from Helena last night. The
plarty arrived by special train from
Whitefish accompanied by Superin
tendent W. R. Smith after spending
several days in the division town.
Recent rumors of construction of
the Libby cut-off west of this place
and re-establishment of the main line
Over this route lent significance to the
visit of the railway officials, although
general inspection of trade conditions
was given as a reason for the visit by
Mr. Gruber. The lparty left this
afternoon for a brief trip over the
Marcen branch. ('o-incident with the
arrival of the party the runior that
W'. II. Ilartt had sold his farm near

denied by Mr. tIartt.
CITIZENSHIP RESTORED.
St. Louis, March 12.-Governor Ma
jor restored citizenship today to Julius
I Lehman, former member of the St.
Louis house of delegates, who served
four years of a seven-year peniten
tiary sentence for bribery following
conviction in the municipal boodle
trials prosecuted by Joseph V. Folk
as circuit attorney. Lehmann is crit
ically ill at his home here.
OF PUBLIC INTEREST
Editor Missoulian-In a press dis
patch sent out through the papers of
the state, is the account of the con
viction and sentence of the man
Smith, from near Laurel, who had
been guilty of the statutory crime
against his 13-year-old stepdaughter.
This dispatch was misleading in that
it stated the girl was in the Hlouse of
Good Shepherd soon to become a
mother. Another account had her in
one of the state institutions. I wish
to correct these statenlents. She is in
the IFlorence Crittenton hime, the
only maternity home in the state, out
silde, of course, the regular and county
hospitals.
It was through the work of the nla
tron of this home that the guilty man
was applrehenllded. Already one of the
humllalle officers of the state has writ
ten his thanks to this good wo'man
for her assistance in this case. As a
home, \\e appreciate thle amendled law,
as given by the last legislative as
semlily in raising the age of consellt
from 16 to 18 years. \We expect to see
reslults of no small proiportion thtrolgh
this la\V'. For two years Vwe have been
dlisseminiating tile fteits of our work
throughout the state, so that intelli
gent action would be( taken in legal
enactments. And with the help of the
humane officers and others interested
we hope the results will amply prove
the wisdom of the measure.
Sincerely,

MR. FLYNN'S VIEW
Editor Missoulian:--In your ac
count of the Fair Ground transac
tion in this morning's paper, were
certain statements made that tend
to mislead the taxpayers wlho read
the article. It was mentioned in the
alleged interview with Manager
Brown, who represented the C'lark In
terests that "assurance was also
given to the board that translporta
tion facilities would be furnished this
site," referring to the south side site;
I wish to state that no such state
ment was made by Mr. Brown; in
fact, we were given to understand that
Mr. (lark had aboalutely refused to
build this extension.
It was further stated that a water
main would have to be built by the
county to the west side site should it
lie selected, at an expense of $5,500,
while water would he carried to the
south side grounds free. Such Is

Pi 's FAVORITE PRESCRIPTIONJ
Give it a fair trial for banishing those distressing pains or
drains on one's vitality. This prescription of Dr. Pierce's regulates all the
womanly functions. It eradicates and destroys "Female Complaints" and
weaknesses that make women miserable and ola before their time. Every girl
needs it before womanhood. Every mother needs it. It is an invigorating tonic
for the female system. All medicine dealers have sold it with satisfaction, to
customers for the past 40 years. It is now obtainable in liquid or tablet form
atdrugatorea-or send 50 one-cent stamps for trial box, to R.V. Pierce, Buffalo.
