The fire, which started in he roof, presumably from an over heated chimney, destroyed the eight-1 no- wooden Dilildlng.

The studies as outlined .or the next period of several months contemplate consideration of the prob able results of the close of the Euro pean war upon conditions in the Uni ted States. 'One of the first prob terns to be met is immigration Mr. Snckett gave a clear exposition •of the reasons why the immigrant is so markedly a problem at the present It. we. The real "hyphenated Ameri cans" are unassimilated Americans. The problem of assimilation is great-j -st with the present generation. The earlier immigrants were the English, Scotch, French of the Hugenot class and Irish. These came to America for the same reason that did the or glnal Americans, and have readily amalgamated with the American peo pie. Then came the Germans and the Scandinavians. These, being a semi . dueated class and coming In a gen eration of less social and Industrial omplexity, have been absorbed to a considerable degree. The more recent milligrams are those of the southern Italian states and from Sicily, and various branches of the Slavic family, clannish nations, and, for the most part, ignorant and deeply supersti tious. A generation or two ago, the immi grants, both men and women, were employed in small personally owned ruetories, where they came into per ronal contact with their American em ployers and fellow employes. Their hildren attended schools taught, for the most part, by teachers of the so ailed Americun stock. Immigrant girls were employed as domestics in Ameri can families. In all these ways the immigrant became familiar with Amer kan standards, ideals and thought. The present day immigrant finds no point of contact with his employers. The men are emoioyed by the large orpor.it ions. They are supervised by b-foremen who are themselves for ei/i ers of i n t -ier arrlvai or firet yci cation /.mencars. V reo< lit sur i.-> or the mi 1 .-, and factories of vln«i ibi tctts dlii iosed the fact that 'J7 per rr.t of the intermediate or,;?-s and o. omen, ih i n-ci. with whom 111 ?

In lie grade schools of the large eastern rit ; es--and these are the only schools anil grades whiih the large majority the immigrant's children ever at the predominating type of teach is tho first generation American, Many of our public schools are taught by foreigners and the essential class procedure is carried on in a foreign! tongue. The immigrant girl is cm loyt-d in sweatshops and factories, which are supervised hv less newly arrived foreigners. The process of Americanization and assimilation un der such conditions is a difficult one. Distribution is likewise difficult. The immigrants remain at tidewater cities, n New 5 orlc alone a population equal none a popumuou eiium •t» that of Lewistown may be found in , sin.I p, pity block The topic of the day calls for the hit J of the government toward the iin migrant. Mr. Sankett developed the -lea of the government as an institu ion. from paternalism, despotism, aris torraey, feudal system, constitutional monarch, to republic. A democracy is a comparatively new idea. Native bom Americans grasp it easily, for they have always been accustomed to it, and they are descended from those who cade it the supreme idea and prin cipal of their lives, who fought for it, *ramed it Into a system, and rnain 'alned it. The sentiment In Europe s still predominatingly monarchical. Immigrants are born In that atmos phere Government, to the Immigrant, means power, centralized force. He links cur government has no force. He does not understand it, its work or Its significance, much less appreciate it. The immigrant must be taught its cower—and that by its exercise, first, in his own behalf. They must be given protection by the government vnd a, le::s;;n in power by the govern ment by seeing it exercised against big well defined foes. The immigrant must Lie protected against misrepre sentation to them by designing men of the opportunities In this country which too often have led them to for sake their foreign homes and come to i rhig count ry. He must be protected, .,-p 0n arrival, against the criminal of his own countrymen who prey upon ! the newly arrived and unsophisticated 'mmigrant. He must be protected again8t tUe evils, economic and social of a corporate industrial system and from the engulfment of the individual by the continuation of their own na tionality. Mr. Sackett gave many in teresting illustrations of the need of such protection. There must be inaugurated efficient means of distribution of immigrants, a system of education adapted to their needs, night schools, and partieul.^ly those for adults. We must supply the 'ack of a paternalistic government to vhicli they are accustomed. those for adults. ENTERTAIN THE WILSONS.

There was a difference of opinion regarding sched ule* In but one committee—that on livestock. Assessor B. W. Emerleh of Beaverhead county, in a minority report, disagreed with the majority members of the committee as to the valuation of stock cattle, declaring that in his belief a minimum valuation of $80 per head is too high.

The method of assessing banks, over which there hee been consider able eontroverey, and merchandise stocks, remain enchanted from last year, The report of the committee recom menlng that reserved mineral rights in all lands be separately assessed where the surface right is held by a different owner, and that such rights be left to the discretion of the asses sors as to valnes, was concurred.
