FRANK L. WORDEN.
In the death of Frank L. Worden, of Missoula, Montana has lost one of her most valuable citizens, lie was one of the pioneers of the Territory, having settled in Missoula in 18(10, four years before our Territory had a name and separate existence and before the dis covery of gold. In connection with Captain Higgins, with whom he was as sociated for 27 years in merchandizing, milling, banking and many other de partments of business, Mr. Worden has been an active, enterprising, honorable, useful and successful business man and citizen. Mr. Worden was a native of Vermont, born in 1830, and at his death was still in the prime of manhood, j Upon the vigorous stock of energy, in tegrity and quick intelhigence that he derived from his ancestry and place of birth was engrafted the enterprise that comes from travel and business in the boundless j West. When just entering manhood he | joined the great tide of gold-seekers that crossed the continent to the Pacific j coast, and there established a new seat of empire and cenier of growth for the great republic. After three years in j California, we find him in Oregon, shar- ! ing the fortunes of miners and traders, | the perrils of Indian warfare, and serv ing a- clerk in the Indian department ! and as first postmaster at Walla Walla, j But the best portion of his life and his j services were given to Montana. He | was a member of our first Legislative ! Assembly, and has several times since ; served his country in the same capacity. I Though an earnest Republican, living in j a strongly Democratic county, Mr. Wor den could always command a majority for a public position he would accept. In every relation of life, as a business man, as a legislator, a large-hearted, public spirited citizen, Mr. Worden was a tower of strength, modest, conciliating, but sound, strong and positive on the right side always. in his family relations lie was as for tunate and happy as in all other re spects. In 1866 be was married to Miss Lucretia Miller, a native of Pen;syl vania, by whom he lias six children. The loss of such a husband and father is no common loss, and our hearts' warmest sympathies go out for them in tin ir deep tllaiction. At this time, when the great destinies of Montana, for the realization of which none wrought better of contributed more than Mr. Worden, are about unfolding into splendid realities, it seems as if such a man could not be spared. But the great Father knows best, and in His wisdom, which we must trust though we cannot interpret, He has taken him and left his work for others to do. While nature's great winding sheet in double folds is laid over the whole face of our Territory and all around is as cold and cheerless as our desolated hearts, the mortal remains of Frank L. Worden will be laid at rest. The memo ry of his noble nature, bis high and honorable career, his sterling character and long catalogue of good deeds is all that remains to us, hut that is a noble heritage and we thank God that we have had such a man when we most needed him. Randolph Tucker has an article on "Indirect Taxation,'' in the last Forum which docs Dot go beyond the usual stock arguments against centralization and the extravagance of the general government, and peaus in praise of free trade and direct taxation. We appeal to every one's obser vation and knowledge if there is not as much economy and honesty in the national administration as in the average of State governments or city governments where direct taxation exists. Compare aDy branch of the national administration with that of New York City or a dozen other of our principal cities. States and cities escape direct taxation by bonding the resources of future generations. All attempts in this country to raise money by direct taxation have failed to show the beaties or advan tages of the system. There is more evasion, complaint and confessed inequality than in aDy other form of taxation. Congress is now considering the matter of refunding what little was so collected dur ing the war. Some States have never paid, and those that did have cause to complain. The article is an expiring wail of the old free trade, States rights school of politicians that went to seed in secession. The tariff is the wisest, fairest, least bur densome form of raising revenue ever yet devised and not the least of its benefits is the encouragement thus offered of build ing up home manufactures and produc tions that have built up and sustain home industries with the grandest system of railroads in the world. The States that complain most of the overshadowing power of the general government, have themselves to blame if they fail to grow in proportion. The Nation has become the unit in our system instead of the States, the great central sun around which the States re volve in their narrower orbits. To all the outside world we are one people and by our growth this national feature necessarily must more and more become prominent, for we cannot avoid the consequences and re sponsibilities of being the most powerful nation in the world. Good c itizens of both parties express surprise that objection from aDy quarter should appear to the proposed registration law. The measure is one that commends itself to the approval of the best people of Montau .. \Ve trust no Republican will in terpose the slightest obstacle to the passage of the bill in the house ol either Assembly. Senator M Anderson's amendment to the Yellowstone Park bill provides for an extension of the Park limits for some miles on the east and west lines and a curtail ment of the area by about two miles on the north. j j | j j ! | ! j Theke is a desperate effort amoDg the money men in all the European capitals and business centers to prevent a financial crisis and a general war that would pre cipitate it. All sorts of government secur ities would co down and some of them go out of sight. The strongest government of Europe would be unable to pay interest and meet the incessant and overwhelming demands of modern warfare. We are not so inhuman as to wish for a general European war for our own incidental ben efit. It would please us better to seeallitain. the nations of Europe disarm, pay their debts, educate and elevate their people and make better and happier men and women of them, rather than to sacrifice them as food for powder. But this present policy of increasing mutual armaments and expenditures unless war is intended is the most inexcusable policy. Every gov ernment in Europe without exception is going beyond its legitimate revenues in making war preparations. There is a con dition of mutual threats and fear almost as costly and demoralizing as war itself. We think all the financial interests and powers will exert themselves to prevent actual war, and the governments of Europe are very much in their hands and will l>e much inlluenced by their advice. On the other band all the army inlluenees and and those who expect to make money out of army contracts are working upon popu lar passions and prejudices to provoke and precipitate war. It is hard to say which will prevail. When there is such a tension of feeling a slight cause is enough to pre cipitate a conflict and reason at once loses all control of the situation. Governor Hauser is about to sur render the Executive office to his suc cessor, who has arrived and is ready at once to assume the reins of Territorial government. Ou all public questions in which the material interests of Mon tana aie involved Governor Hauser, for the time he has served Mon tana, has been abreast of the best thought and expression of the Terri tory. The first citizen Governor Montana has had, he has more than met the highest expectation of the people in all matters af fecting the public weal, and irrespective of party everybody have been prompt and generous in their commendation and support. The Herald would be glad to see a banquet spread in his honor as a slight attestation of the popular regard and the universal appreciation which attach to the man and sustain his public views and measures. Republicans will cordially and heartily join in a testimonial of the kind proposed. We suggest a banquet, if such would he agreeable to Gov. Hauser and meet his convenience, to be carried out within the next few days. I | , within the next few days. Helena is reasonably sure of the Wools tou water works. Substantially the ten thousand people of the city are heart and soul in favor of his enterprise. In a can vass of hundreds of consumers the past few days not one has been met with but was ready on the instant to contract with him lor water on the terms he proposes to furnish it. There is probably not the re motest doubt that the new and compre hensive water plant will he a realized fact before the close of next autumn. It will he the greatest boon yet conferred upon Helena. Mr. Woolston proceeds, as he begun, in a straightforward, business like way to the accomplishment of his under taking. The days of monopoly are num bered in Helena. On with the good work. It is good news that there is an irrecon cilable difference between the Senate and House upon the hill to repeal the pre-emp tion, timber culture and desert land laws. After other States have had the benefit of I I those several laws, it would be unjust to deprive the people of the Territories thereof, where the lands are of poorer quality and more is needed to constitute a holding that can support a family, where timber culture is of most importance and irrigation by artificial canals is necessary for successful cultivation. Let the present laws stand till something better can be devised. It will not be long before Montana and other Territories will be States, and then we can do something to secure such legislation as will benefi t us. _ The European markets are in a very disturbed condition and a general crash is possible, which for a time wonld unsettle our own markets sympathetically, inas much as American securities would be about the only ones on which ready money could be realized. They would be sent over in such quantities as to depreciate the markets for a time. After the first wave had passed, business confidence would go up steadily, for all the efiects of a general war in Europe would be to our ultimate advantage._ Better qualified, more attentive and courteous officers than those who have dis charged the duties of Auditor and Treas urer of Montana for the past several years no Territory has ever had. The successors of Messrs. Woolman and Wes ton will deserve the popular approval if they do as well and show as constant fidel ity in the discharge of their public trusts. The Nevada legislature recently passed an act consenting to receive Idaho or any other Territory that Congress might annex and upon such conditions as might be pre scribed. Wonder if this would include Utah ? We fancy not until Mormons are disfranchised._ The silly Miss Van Zandt has been married to Spies by proxy, the anarchist's brother representing him at the ceremony and the written contract being signed by both parties in the presence of witnesses. Our Senate has ratified an extension of the reciprocity treaty with the Sandwich Islands and coupled therewith an acquisi tion of favorable grounds for a permanent coaling sta tion. _ There is promise of an agreement be tween the two Houses at Washington on some anti-polygamy bill. We hopo it will provide also for a constitutional amend ment TnE liberal and patriotic actionsof the Senate in voting almost unanimously for so large an appropriation lor the mann facture of modern improved steel guns and the plant to manufacture them, and for coast defenses, ought to be as promptly approved by the House and the President. As to the building of more ships of war, there is a wider chance for difference of opinion. There is doubt as to the value of any of the present war ships. Their cost is enormous and their value is uncer seeallitain. Smaller and less expensive ships, I with greater speed, is believed by many to I be the better class for our circumstances. ! There is another fact to be considered in I connection with steel steamships. In I case of a war with England, where would we find the coaling stations wanted? ! Steamships are of no account unless they j can he supplied with coal. We are not . prepared to sustain a large navy of such ' vessels and it will require, when the time comes, that we have coaling stations all over the world,and these must be defended against capture. But so far as the manu facture of the most powerful guns is con cerned, there is no doubt of our present needs, as well for coast defense as to sup ply our ships of war. We ought not to think of buying these guns abroad, even though at first we might he able to get them cheaper. We need the plant, so that in case of war and being cut off from for eign markets, we could be independent. There is no doubt of our ability to surpass other nations as much in the arts of war as of peace, and so long as nations respect only the mailed hand of force, we must to some extent imitate their bad example, and show them at least that we are able to meet them on land or water on their own terms and favorite methods. We are not calling tor , any increase of onr standing army, but merely for the means and skill to manufacture the best weapons that inventive skill can devise. As a nation we must not only counsel peace, but he in con dition to demand it. In estimating the chances of a European I war and the future prospects of the na | tions of Europe, Russia is apt to be under rated. She is apt to he regarded as weak from internal discontent, unwieldy and without credit or resources. On the con trary, Russia has the capacity to become, if she has not the present command of her resources, the greatest power in the Eastern Hemisphere, as the United States in the Western World. She covers already one sixth of the landed surface of the whole world, and is lieir apparent to a great deal more. Nor is this vast area desert or frozen waste, hut includes the best wheat lands , of Europe and Asia, with inexhaustible mines of precious and useful metals. The oil wells of the Caspian region are already amoDg the richest in the world and of such vast extent that our own re sources in the same line are thrown into comparative insignificance. One sin gle well of Tagiff, from a ten inch orifice, has produced as much as 2,750,000 gallons iu a single day, or more than all the 25,000 wells in the United States and the rest of the world put together. This single well I produces about as much as the present daily consumption of the whole world. The depth of this well is only 714 feet. Every portion of this product is of use After extracting the portion for lamp use the residue is used for fuel for steamers, locomotive engines, and for domestic pur- j poses, and is the best and cheapest fuel in use. The control of thisffuel supply is worth billions to Russia in a mere commer cial point of view, and gives her the means to conquer, settle and develope the whole of Central Asia and extend her railroad system to every corner of the vast empire. ! ! ; ; - I J ; I • j J j I dictate of common decency, a poor and We are glad that the House has passed the Chinese indemnity hill. It was the tardy atonement for as gross an outrage as ever was perpetrated by the blood thirsty Apaches. China has often paid us heavy damages in cases of much less provocation, and she has done this in cases that have occurred since the Rock Springs outrage. We ought to be ashamed to be outdone in enlightened methods of Dealing such inter national questions by the half-civilized, heathen Chinee. The Chinese government has been very calm and considerate in urg ing so just a demand, and for this further reason we ought to delay no longer. The Chinese government is ready to modify the Burlingame treaty and accept any restric tion we may desire upon emigration. And this will be very mach the best and most effectual way to reach the case. Councilman Kennedy's bill, No. 4, providing for a large line of additional public advertising, which was crowded through the Council without a divided vote, was yesterday returned from com mittee to the House without recommen dation. The Herald suggests for a second time that very properly a competitive clause should he added as an amendment to relieve the bill of the pretty clearly de fined appearance of jobbery on its face in its present shape. The bill has its merits, bat it is marred by' the featnre contem plating the creation of an "official organ'' of some paper in every county in the Terri tory. The Herald asks members to look into the matter and correct the defect pointed out_ The Manitoba right-of-way bill we re gard j ust as good as passed by Congress, and no apprehension is felt for its safety with the President. We believe that in a few days at furthest it will have become a law, and the last obstacle to the rapid ad vance of the road removed finally and for good. The efi'ect of the announcement will be magical upon all the material interests of Montana, and in the benefits to ensne no community of the Territory will more largely share than Helena. It must have given Senator Ingalls a grim satisfaction to present the petition from Ohio far the annexation of Canada. We very much doubt if a majority of the people of this country would vote annex ation if it was freely tendered. We are pretty sure it will have to be tendered and urged before we seriously consider the question. If gaining the Dominion would enable us to break up that swarming nest of blizzards, we would be reconciled. CORPORATE LAND OWNERS. ; We are not inclined to attach much • importance to the hill before our legis l a ture limiting the amount of land that ' ma y field by a corporation. It looks to us like legislating against an imaginary danger. The word corpora tion raises as much of a flutter in some minds as the sight of a red rag does in a turkey. We can see some sense in preventing aliens, either individually or corporately, from holding large bodies of land in this country, but so far as corporations of our own citizens are con cerned we see nothing to be feared or dis countenanced in this direction. Cor porations cannot acquire land from the general government except as the North- j j ern Pacific did, by grant, and that day is passed. The law that is proposed will not prevent that corporation from holding what has already been granted to it by the government. It is well known that large areas of our Territory are so meagrely productive of natural pasturage that they will have to be held ! in large bodies or left for an indefinite period as commons with the title in the government and beyond the reach of ! taxation. It seems to us that ; all or most of the prejudice ; against large land holdings in - this country are foreign importations. I We have never suffered therefrom. Land J is something that can never be hidden. ; It is always in sight of the assessor and I tax collector. We might as well limit the power of a corporation in the amount of stock it shall hold, or of its personal property. In fact, there are more good reasons for this than to limit its hold ing of land. Just now it is hard to tell what is to be the future of our live stock industry. If it can be more profitably carried on by corporations than by individuals, we ought not to throw a straw in the way. It is an im portant interest, exposed to great risks and losses, and it needs fostering rather than antagonizing in any form. It looks to us as if the law proposed would block the construction of irrigating canals by large corporations, which would work a permanent injury to us in the future. We do not see that the fact that corporations are without souls cuts any figure in the consideration. Souls are not taxed, nor do they engage in the productive industry. Corporations are but the application of the principle that "in union there is strength." Combinations of capital, skill and labor have been the natural outgrowth of intelligence and have wrought won ders in modern times. These combina tions allow of abetter division of skill and labor. Where ten individuals work ing separately and in competition might all fail, working together all may suc ceed. One owner of a quarter section of land could not afford to build a water ditch that would cost $50,000, but a hun dred such individual owners might com bine and incorporate, put their property in common and easily carry through such a scheme as would have broken and bankrupted any one of them. Whatever has been true in other countries we have never suffered, but on the contrary have been benefitted by the large land holdings. And in Mou tana, where we have such an interest in encouraging corporations to engage in Established 1864. A. G. CLARKE. THOMAS CONRAD. J.C.CUBTIN.

They will not ac cept the forfeiture of the grant from Wal lula to Portland, saying that if this is accepted they will get nothing more. They pretend to have greater hopes of a future Congress and say nothing will be done at this session. Yet it is possible that the majority of the House is not so insanely foolish as they are. The correspondence between Randal et al. with Speaker Carlisle, over the repeal of the tobacco tax, is more curious than important. The idea that an overburdened, tax-paying people is going to be greatly re lieved by the repeal of the tobacco tax is amusing and would almost make a croco dile shed tears. Agricultural Convention. New York, February 8.— At the after noon session of the agricultural convention President Real delivered the annual ad dress. He said the association had brought about good feelings between the farmers and railroads and securvd the first recogni tion of the farmers by Congress in the pas sage of the oleomargarine bill Continu ing, Real said : "The workingmen are your brothers and demand your interest and sympathy. They are resisting, under the leadership of that pure-minded, honest, unselfish, wise man, T. V. Powderly, the tyranny of capital. I have studied the principles and nature of the Knights of Labor, and they are truth. The men who could swindle you are the men they con tend with.'' Reall was re-elected president. Addresses coinciding with President Reall's sentiments were delivered. Sugar Production. St. Louis, February 8.—The National Sugargrov. ers' Association met in this city this afternoon.

Scoville, director of the agricultural station at Lex ingtOD, Ky., presided. President Colman's address was read by the secretary. The address showed that the total production of cane sugar in 1885-1886 was 3,197,000 metric tons,aDd in 1886-87 2,368,000 metric toDS. The production of sugar from sor ghum cane in this country and Europe had only lately commenced, but it already reached an amount equal to our total pro duction of all kinds of sugar. The com missioner considers that, upon the whole, although the expectations of a year ago have not been realized, the outlook is favorable for a large production of sugar from sorghum by the adoption of the new process of ditlusioa and saturation.
