The aggregate value of the railroads
is fixed at about $18,000,000,000, and

REDUCTION IN FREIGHT RATES
MEANS READY MONEY TO
MONTANA SHEEPMEN.
Montana shippers of wool will save
$115,000 annually in shipping their
"TT 01 36 -° 00 ' 000
as a result of the recent findings of
the interstate commerce commission,
when a new schedule was ordered,
Intermountain shippers of wool also
will be able to compete successfully
with Pacific coast producers, who now
enjoy a rate of $1 per hundred pounds
to Boston. The rates are expected to
be in effect next Wednesday, so this
year's clip may be benefitted.
i Montana ranks second in wool pro
duction among the five western states,
Idaho, Wyoming, Nevada, Utah and
Montana. Wyoming leads with 40,-:
000,000 pounds; Montana, 36,000,000;
Idaho, 20,000,000; Utah, 15,000,000;
Nevada, 12,000,000.
The reduction amounts to about lb
per cent and aggregates more than
$400,000, divided as follows: Utah,
$47,925; Idaho, $G3,900;
$137,800; Nevada, $38,340, and Mon
! tana, $115,000.
j The freight reduction brings up the
question to Montana growers of the
market they shall choose.
Sheepmen will be able to bill their
wool direct to Boston with the priv
ilege of holding a shipment at an in
termediate point at slight additional
expense. This will enable them to re
move their wool from the shearing
corrals and, on a dull market, store it
; at a near-by point. They thus will be
able to watch their wool and obtain
advances on it from local instead of
eastern bankers.
Utah possibly may be a clearing
point, for Montana wool and Utah pro
1 ducers hope that an idea originating
with the late E. H. Harriman may be
revived and made effective. Several
years ago close associates of Mr. Har
riman headed a movement to have
WO ol rates readjusted and a scouring
plant to cost $8,000,000 established in
salt Lake, making that point a clear
jpg house lor western wool. The
proposition was abandoned after Mr.
Harriman died. The advantage of
1 such a plant would not depend en
tirely upon the Utah production, as It
undoubtedly would get the 17,000,000
1 pounds produced by Nevada and per
haps tne Montana, Idaho and Nevada
clip.
The new rates proposed are based
() n carload shipments of 24,000 pounds
0 f sacked and 32,000 pounds of pressed
or baled wool. From Denver, Cheyenne
and Trinidad to St. Louis the reduc
tion is to 80 cents and to Boston to
$1.32. Beginning at Cheyenne and go
ing west on the Union Pacific It will
increase 2 cents for each 25 miles,
whiclTwM make the Ogden, Salt Lake
c , t nd s i m ii ar ly situated points a
Hirough rate to Boston of $1.72, a re
duction of 41 cents from present rates,
q r ^aled wool the rates will be Vo
cent less than the maximum rates

Great Falls Plant to Be Made Model
Smelter of World, Says J. D. Ryan,
Great Falls, April 24.—-Before leav
ing Great Falls today, John 1>. Ryan
made the further announcement that
orders nave been issued for the corn
plete reconstruction of the Boston &
Montana smelter at an estimated cost
of $2,500,000 and the transformation
of the present plant into what he
| termed one of the model smelters of
the world. He stated that plans and
specilications had already been pre
pared and accepted and the beginning
of work only remains for the delivery
of structural steel by the big eastern
mills. Delivery of this material will
commence in between three and four
months and a large force of men will
be employed. It is expected that the
new plant will be completed in about
a year. The works are to be con
structed entirely of steel and concrete.
The new plant will occupy a good
portion of the site of the present
smelter as well as considerable
ground along the river to the east and
ag mU ch as possible of the present
1 smelter will be utilized. The present
plant will be operated during the con
structlon and, according to Mr. Ryan,
the output will probably be increased
| rather than decreased,
j Speaking of the proposed changes,
Mr. Ryan said:
"The present plant is an excellent
one, but it has been 22 years since it
was built and since that time there
are many changes In the processes of
copper production and, while we have
kept up with the procession, yet
economy makes It worth while to
change the entire plant,
! "In fact, with the plans upon which
the new plant is to be built and the
water power advantages at this point,
I am satisfied to make announcement
that in one year we will have in Great
Falls one of the model copper smelters
of the entire world. We have the lo
j cation, we have the water power and
j we will have every known improve
! ment in the way of copper production
additional, so I have every confidence
in making this statement."
Work to Start at Once.

of Helena men at a luncheon at the
Montana club.
The important announcement was

FROM WINTER TO WINTER.
_ . ...... .. . _
Sa " Francisc ° W,M Have Longest Ex
position on Record,
No city in the world that has ever
before held an international exposi
Hon could have hoped to attract visi
tors for more than five or six months
of the year. London, Philadelphia,
Paris, Chicago, St. Louis and every
other city that has invited the world
to see the displays it has collected
weather to which folks must accom
modate themselves as best they may.
San Francisco escapes all this. And
it is to the city's fogs, unappreciated
sometimes by thinly clad summer
has been satisfied with an exposition
remaining open for less than half a
twelvemonth.
San Francisco could give an all-the
year-round exposition if It were
thought desirable to do so. It has
been decided to give one that will last
approximately 10 months—from Feb
ruary to December. It will be pos
sible to do this because of the city's
equable climate, which makes winter,
spring, summer and fall all enjoyable
in their own particular ways.
For four months or so in the East
people have to be prepared for sleet,
snow, raw winds and frost. Between
the beginning of fall and the setting
in of spring towers a barrier of more
or less bleak days and bitter nights,
of alternate storm, thaw and rough
tourists, that much of the evenness
of temperature is due. They keep
the city cool in summer and free from
cold in winter, making it an ideal re
sort from the trying climate of other
parts of the country.
Despite the fogs, however, San Fran
cisco has a greater average amount
of sunshine during the year than most
of the cities of the East. This has
been repeatedly shown by statistics
compiled by the United States Weath
er Bureau.
The date fixed for the opening of
the exposition, February 20, will
synchronize with the beginning of the
movement northward of tourists from
the East who spend their winters in
the southern part of the state. As a
rule, these tourists do not come to
San Francisco before March or the
beginning of April. They may be ex
pected to take advantage of the ex
position's opening to spend a longer
time here than hitherto has been their
custom.
Desperate Situation.
Chicago, April 24.—Mail advices re
ceived today from Guayamas, Sonora,
and dated April 12, tell of imminent
danger threatening 1,000 Americans
along the west coast of the southern
republic.
According to advjces, 100 Zapatistas
are looting and pillaging at Culiacan,
Cape of Sinaloa. Hunger is making
the natives desperate and It is said
that American plantations are in dan
ger of being raided.
The Yaqui Indians are on the war
path in Sonora, shooting at passenger
trains and looting ranches and small
towns south of Guayamas. The south
ern portion of Sonora Is in a state of
anarchy.
At insperanza, where there are sup
posedly 150 Americans, all the women
and children have been sent from the
country and the men have armed
themselves and are prepared for a
siege.
Similar conditions prevail at Navo
joa, where there are about 100 Ameri
cans on small farms; at San Bias and
Los Mochis, where there are 75 Ameri
cans, and at Navolate, where the
Rhoades sugar refinery still is ope
rating, although the women and chil
dren were sent from that place several
days ago to take a steamer for San
Francisco.
