Some of our exchanges pretend to thiuk that in the forthcoming message of President Cleveland, he will speak in no nuild terms about maintaining the Monroe doctrine as to the difficulty between Eng land and Venezuela. As a matter of fact we do not believe Cleveland has enough American backbone to stand up for any thin r where Eng land is concerned. He has given us a good British administration ever since he has been in the White House and he will continue to the end of his term of office Our next president, we hope, will be an American, with American ideas and American enterprise. This space is reserved ior the Dupuyer Townsite Company Watch for their advertisement. The commission appointed by the president to visit Fort Belknap and treat with the Assinaboine and Gros Ventre Indians has been suc cessful. The two tribes of Indians have ceded to the government an area of ».bout 56 square miles of mineral land from their reserva tions. The document signed by the Indians describes the purchase as follows: The strip of land question lies north of the south boundary of the reservation and east of the high ridge that is east of thesawaill and south of that ridge, that is on the north side of the north fork of People creek. There is no timber on ihis land, no grass, no water or no game. For and in consideration of the land the Indians receive $360,000. The payments are to begin at the expir ation of the present treaty, in about three years from the present time and are to cover a period of five years. They are to be made in cattle, implements, provisions, etc., as under the arrangement now prevailing. It was also agreed that the lands were not to be allot ted to the Indians until they made a request to that effect. The trea ty is to be ratified by congress within 90 days from the date of its contract. It would be well for the sheriffs of more than one county in the state of Montana to read the follow ing letter from the governor to Sheriff Fitzpatrick of Deer Lodge county. Dear Sir,—Information reaches me through the press to the effect that prize fights are of frequent ocurrence in your county: that such exhibitions are of recent occurrence and that further exhib itions are being arranged for. You are undoubtedly aware that prize fighting is a felony under our statutes and that those in atten dance are guilty of a misdemeanor. You are directed to investigate the matter thoroughly and in case the reports are true that prize fights have occurred in your county or are about to occur, to exercise the functions of your office and see that the proper parties are arrested. I have written to the county attorney of your county, directing him to tojoperate with you in this matter to the end that the laws of the state may be rigid ly enforced and if such disgraceful scenes are occurring they may be stopped.

Tfesoott, Publisher. The 'atest returns of the English board of trade show why the anti protection policy of the Cleveland administration is heavily endorsed on the other aide of the Atlantic. John Bull is nothing if not practic al. For years he has had his eye on the Americau market, knowing that if he could capture it he would gain one of the richest prizes of the commercial world. When the free traders won under the leadership of Clevelend there was naturally great rejoicing in England. The reasons for this rejoicing i9 furnished by some of the official figures of the British board of trade. From these figures we learn that last year the exports of worsteds to the United States amounted in value to $2,084,1j60, an increase of more than 300 over August of last year. For the eight months ending Aug ust 31 the British exports of wool en and worsted goods to the Unit ed States were 42,425,100 yards, compared wiih 9,425,500 for the first eight months of 1894, an in crease of 500 per cent. During these same eight months the value of English worsteds exported to this country was $16,174,500, as compared wiih only $3, 522,490 during the first eight months of 1894. These figures show that John Bull, thanks to the anti-pro tective policy, has been able to add about twelve and a half millions to the right side of his ledger trom the increased sale of one manufac ture alone. John Bull, while thus pocketing American money, shows no disposition to favor Oncle Sam in the way of trado. I'tirnlug once more to the returns of the English board of trade we find the English imports of wheat from the United States this year has been about 2,000,000 hundred weightless than last year. Such are some of the results of the first year's exper ieuce under the revenue reform policy advocated by Cleveland and his friends.—Irish World. A strange and unusual case came up before the court officials in Hel ena last Saturday. That morning Buffalo Coat, a full blooded Cree Indian, appeared in Gov. Leslie's office bearing in his hand a paper signed by Clerk of the Court of Cascade county. It was a déclara tiou of his intention to become citizen of the States. He had trouble with a man on whose land he had camped and who ordered him off. He seemed to think that the paper would add weight to the matter and that the authorities would take immediate steps to right his wrongs. The clerk, how ever , refused to recognize the paper, as the American govern ment handles the Indian only by treaties. An Indian, according to law cannot takeout naturalization papers. He becomes a citizen only by conforming to the treaty made by the tribe to which he belongs. The treaty with the various tribes all differ from eaeh other and were made in accordance with the cir cumstances under which they were formulated. This fact does not, however, apply to Buffalo Coat. He is a Cree and therefore a ward of Great Britain. According to a report to the ! state department from U. S. Con sul Bigelow at Rouen the world's production of wool has not increas ed duriug the past year, but has actually diminished. The figures collected by the permanent custom house commissioners show that in 1893 the quantity of wool available for commerce was one thousand and twelve millions of kilograms as against one thousand and two mil lions in 1894. In France the pro duct has steadily diminished from 32,151,430 Kilograms in 1849 to 20,285,716 in 1893. The quality of wool dees not improve and on ac count of the high price of meats sheep are being raised for that pur pose icstead of for wool. Oscar Wilde is gradually getting out of prison.

The suggestion of Truth that Englishmen be inoculated so as to be immune to the charms of Amer ican girls ought to be amended. The inoculation should be perform ed on English girls, who might be infected with some American dash.

Five years ago the price of silver was quoted at $1.04 while to-day it is only hall that, yet notwith standing these deteriorated circum stances, new prospects are being daily reported and new and pros perous camps have come up like the springing blade, while the mineral productions of the state have attracted the people from every part of the civilized world. The people are all prosperous to day, but their prosperity would be a myth compared to what it would be with the free and unlimited coinage of silver.—Missoulian.

Largest line of gent's under wear ever brought to Teton county ust received at McKnight's. Letter to Wool Men. The following circular letter has been sent from .Great Falls to prominent sheepmen in Teton, Cas cade, Valley, Meagher, Fergus and Choteau counties: Dear Sir—At a meeting held at the Park hotel Saturday, Oct. 6, at which a considerable number of the largest woolgrowers of this and adjoining counties were pres ent the subject of organization for the purpose of securing proper pro tection for the wool industry was thoroughly discussed. It was the sense of the meeting that great benefits could be secured through the medium of a state organization and to this end a county organiza tion should be effected in each of the counties of the state for the purpose of sending delegates to a state convention to be held in Hel ena on Nov. 11. The Cascade organization elected four delegates, Messrs. W. G. Conrad, J. H. Rice, H.. H. Nelson and Frank Cooper, to represent them at Helena on that date, and the secretary was instructed to prepare this circular and mail it to such woolgrowers as he'could obtain the addresses of. The object of the circular is to in duce the woolmen of your county to hold a meeting on Oct. 26 and effect a similar organizition to that of Cascade county, and espec ially to send one or more delegates (as many as you can induce to attend) to Helena on the occasion of the meeting to form a state organization, Nov. 11. It is, perhaps, scarcely necessary to call your attention to the great importance of this movement to the woolgrower. In making up the present tariff the interests of the eastern manufacturers were carefully safeguarded and they got all the protection they asked for, largely because their representa tives were at Washington, uuited in their demands, and working harmoniously, not only to se cure protection for their industry but free wool besides. The wool growers were without adequaterep "•" 1 ■itooefraarl amnn» themselves as to the provisions necessary for their protection. These conditions were not without their bearing on the final disposi tion of the question by It is certain that the tariff wi'l again come up for discussion before the next congress, and it is of vital importance that the interests of the woolgrowers are properly pre sented and our representatives strengthened by the presence of a weighty and harmonious delegation of men interested in tho business at Washington. To secure this is one of the main objects of a state organization. Idaho has already a state organization in active opera tion which has three representa tives appointed to appear for them before congress. The other states are moving along the same lines and Montana should not be behind hand in a question of so mnch interest to her. There are many other ways in which a state organ ization will prove a benefit to the wool raisers. The Idaho organiza tion has, in the way of transporta ! tion, and other various ways, dur ing the past two years, saved over ' $50,000 to the sheepmen of that ' state. The Cascade county organ ization has agreed to bring the matter to the attention of the counties in the northern part of tho state and ex-senator T. C. Power has agreed to take steps to the of other tions to the importance of prompt action in the matter of organiza tion. We trust that you will briug the contents of this circular to the attenoion of anyone in your viciu ity interested in wool growing. A supply of circulars has been sent to your county gwith a re< -st that the people interest the. t Ives in seeing that a meeting i- jeld on the 26th inst. and delega'. .s elected to meet in Helena on Nov. 11.

Keir Hardie, the noted socialist of Scotland, now touring this country, was in Butte last week. Most of his talk was devoted to the labor problem in its connection with the politics of the British isles. He said there would be no more sham battles between the liberals and tories but hereafter the independent labor party would at all times be in the field. The Montana convention of the W. C. T.

Frank Cutts, father of the deaf, dumb and blind child who was out raged by Weir near Sand Coulee short time ago, comitted suicide in Great Falls last Sunday morning. Despondency, caused by poverty and the crime committed on his child, caused the deed. He took a big dose of morphine. While hunting on the river last week, says the Glasgow Record, Messrs. Boede, Lemmer, Beary and Kemmel were startled by runniug onto a man almost destitute of clothing and bearing the appear ance of one haif starved, as indeed, he must have been, for he was sub sisting solely on fish and the only way he had of cooking them was by boiling, which he did in a tin pail. He had no other cooking uten sils or provisions whatever, and all inquiries failed to elicit any inform ation concerning himself. The mair talked to himself almost constantly but to others talked quite ration, ally. The party gave him soma provisions and left him, as he ex pressed no desire to accompany them. He appeared in Glasgow Friday and was indeed a sight to behold. His bony hands and long fingers were as black as tar and scratched and cracked until they were one mass of cuts and running sores. He refused to give his name or where he belonged. The man ate a hearty breakfast and with his tin pail started on east. lie is undoubtedly crazy, although no demonstrations of this are made save by talking to himself.
