IFTEBEM ING TO EMIGRANTS.
Montana offers better inducements to the
thrifty emigrant at the present time of
any country. In the northern portion, till
recently one continuous Indian reservatioa,
there are now nearly fifteen million acres
of land open lor settlement, nough to
furnish a quarter section to nearly 100,000
heads of tamilies. Though in the north
ernmost part of the territory it lies at
a lower altitude and has a milder
climate and a more copious
rainfall. It is all good wheat land and
equally good for vegetables, grass or stock
of atiy kmd. The Manitoba road traverses
the whole of it and furnishes the settler a
twofold market, either at the greatest mill
ing or mining centers ol ehe country. This
is a great consideration to those looking
lor permanent homes. Montana will al
ways furnish a rich home market
of her own. She leads all the
States even now with the products
ofjher mines which have been developed
within the past ten years. Within the
nexe ten years, more or less these products
of precious and useful metals will exceed
$100,000,000 a year. Drouth or flood, heat
or cold cannot harm or hinder this portion
ol Montana's harvest. Her mines net only
produce wealth but attract wealth, and it
is true to-day that if all her available
wealth were assessed Montana would show
a greater per capita of riches than any
country in the world or than any other
poritou ol our own country.
£The developments of the past five years
have shown that Montana possesses ex
haustlesa coal fields underlying more than
a third of her vast area. This will make
her presently 3 great manufacturing .State,
for w hich also she has endless water power.
Though one ol the last sections of the
country to be visited by railroads, in none
has their progress been eo rapid. Several
of the beet estabbshed systems of the coun
try are already competing for her profitable
trade and others are hurrying to share the
Tbelë Is not in the world at present a
more inviting field tor the resolute and
thrifty emigrant than Montana. ^
Thk war between the Democratic Gov
ernor and Legislature of Dakota has little
significance further than to show the in
herent abominations of a system that can
impose upon the people of an inchoate
commonwealth a ruler hostile and invid
ious to nii* •**» I we I litthsofthose whom
he is to govern, and this, under a system of
government that professes the principle that
the consent of the governed is the
only legitimate source of authority.
What does Governor Çhnrch care for
the people of Dakota^ He Is not
beholden to them for his position. Wbat
Cleveland cares for them is evidence
enough in his appointment of a man well
known to him to be politically and every
other way opposed to the people of Dakota,
and appointed for this very reason. There
is an old saying that, "whom the Gods
would destroy they first make mad." Ac
cordingly Governor Church Beems ripe for
destruction. He will soon realize how
brief his petty authority is. The only
wonder is that a system of territorial gov
ernment so open to abuse has not been
more abused than it has.
The English spy Le Caron, who testified
in the London Timet Parnell trial, is a re -
freshing person. By his own confession he
has been an informer in the pay of the
British government since 1865, and has
taken the oath of allegiance in a number
of Irish organizations only to betray their
secrets to the English officials. In giving
his testimony the other day, he laughed
heartily at the recollection of a particular
ly dirty piece of work. He is the basest
and most contemptible kind of a man. To
be a spy in time ol war is oftentimes an
admirable action. To be an informer dur

sparring for an opening. McAnliffe opened
with a rush, landing heavily on Myers'
nose Some in-tightiDg followed, which
resulted in a clinch. Mac led with his

Reported Interview With Blaine
About the Project.
Baltimore, February 12.—Col. Julian
Allen, of Statesville, N. C., who has been in
the city lor several days in the interest of
the Southern Exposition that will be held
the coming fall in one of the northern
cities, to-day told a reporter of the Ameri
can that while in Washington recently he
had an extended interview with James G.
Blaine. The latter gentleman expressed a
cordial interest in the project, und a wil
lingness to do anything m his power to
help it forward. He also took occasion to
express his deep interest in the develop
ment of the South, and his earnest hope of
the settlement of the race problem in a
way that will inure to the beet inten sts
of the whole people. In the selection of
Federal officials for the Southern States
Mr. Blaine led Col. Allen to think he
would favor the appointment of conserva
tive Republican men who had laid aside
the hatreds and bitterness of war times,
who were aiming at the development of
the country and the happiness and welfare
of the people. In many ways Blaine ex
pressed his concern lor the welfare ol the
South and his interest in its future.
Blaine also spoke with freedom about
his acceptance of the position ot Secretary
of State in Gen. Harrison's cabinet, and he
said President Harrison tendered him the
position a few days after election and did
it in such a cordial way thaï ne at once
accepted it in the same spirit.
