The people of Yellowstone county want a new court house and will be given an opportunity to vote upon a proposition to bond the countv for $76,000 or $100,000 next fall for the er action of one. Signs of uunsnal volcanie disturb ance have appeared ip places as wide ly separated as France, Alaska and Mexico. The eruption in the West Indies is evidently due to something more than local conditions. Since the democrats have trium phantly elected a governor of Oregon in the recent election the republican press of the country has discarded the slegan, "As goes Oregon, so goes the union," and is busy explaining how it happened. The ceded portion of the Fort Hall reservation, centering around Poca tella, Idaho, was thrown open to set tlement yesterday at noon. Thous ands of settlers from all over the country were on hand and participat ed in the rush. The ceded portion embraces 418,000 acres of very desir ons agricultural and mineral land. The amended irrigation bill passed the house last Friday, the vote being 146 to 55. The bill provides for the reclamation of the arid lands of the Western states and territories, the work to be done under supervision of the Interior Department. The funds are to be derived from the sale of pub lic lands. The passage of the bill is largely due to the earnest and per sistent work of Western representa tives, none of whom worked more zealously and effectively thad Sena tors Clark aud Gibson of Montana. The enactment of the law, which is now assured, marks the beginning of an era of rapid development through out the west, as the people of the over-crowded east are casting wistful eyes toward cheap homes in the west. Senator Gibson truly says the pass age of the irrigation bill "will make Montana practically a new state in the reclamation and settlement of its rich lands and will soon carry its population past the million mark." A socialist ticket in the field is quite probable in Montana next fall, but the election of any socialist can didate is not at all probable, says the Missoula Democrat. In fact it is not at all possible. The campaign will be between the two big parties and they only will be considered after the contest has been fairly opened. So cialism is ideal when viewed by an idealist. Viewed by practical people it is impracticable. The practical, progressive American could not con sent to a removal of the incentives to his ambition even though he favors a more equitable distribution of thiags -desirable. The American people will take steps next fall toward altering certain conditions that now prevail. The alarming concentration of wealth Dow being effected can be stopped by - curtailing the governmental protec tion extended by the republican ad Yninistratiou to the far-reaching cap italistic combinations that are con trolling the products of the couutiy's industries. This condition will be altered by the election of democratic congressmen, not only in Montana, bat in I majority of the states. A democratic majority in the senate ■nd bouse of representatives will aud» abort work of the governmental gw toeM on afforded the trusts. 51 ® VICTOR NEWS.
