Two years, and in some cases, three years, after the last demo cratic administration took charge of the country's uTairs, démocratie papers and democratic speech makers claimed that tht depression in business from which the country was suffering was caused fr< m the effects of previous republican in competency and that the democrat ic party could rot be expected to cure all this in two or three years. Now some of the very same papers talked in this strai'i are finding fault with the republican party be cause it does not undo the work of democracy in three- months Con sistency never had a home in the dem icrtii; ranks: Fhe democratic policy se. -ms to consist of denun ciation of everything that is not labelled democratic and does not provide offices for democrats. And its arguments are mainly oased on the fact that the republican party has not pui down in three months trusts and monopolies which demo cracy could not or would not at tempt to suppress i.j its whole four years of power.—Ravalli Le publican. The Acantlia has always con» tended that the republican poiicy of protection would sooner or later break the solid south. Their in dustries need protection to properlv develop them, and the old pre ju.iicps of thirty years ago will en tirely disappear if the republican party gi T ^B *0 therri proper recogni tion. Recently Senator McEnery, ■ if Louisiana, a democrat member of that body, voted with the repub licans for the sugar schedule. He openly avowed himself a protec tionist, and declar°d that tariff views should not constitute the test of democracy. The wedge has has been entered and the spiit in the democratic party of the south wi'l grow wider ana wider. People who criticise the prooosi tion to place a duty on hides brought into the country will per haps be interested in the fact that the value of hides imported since 1890 is in excess of the importation uf wool, upon which the vast ma jority of the people of this county agree that there should be a duty. The importation of hides from 1890 to 1895 inclusive, amounted in value, according to the American Economist, to $176,723,197, while the value of the wool imported in that time is given by ihc same authority as $138,362,84-1.—Tren ton, N.

Tne latest advices from Boston indicate a firmer fee»ing and a more encouraging outlook in the Boston wool market. While f hpre is no advance in the quoted rates, there i- i feeling that th se rates ar in- i< li,t'ul, to advance than t< decline. Tee Boston market is described by the Cotton and Wool Reporter in its last issue as follows: After speaking of the firm cons dition* prevailing iu t:ie London market and the prospect of a short crop in Austrrlia this season, it sav s "Iu view of th? foregoing, a a firmer and more confident feeling prevails in the trade. No one has succeeded in secur ing higher prices for his wool as yet, however, bu. a.I believe that, with a good de. tnand, it ian only be a question of time as to when prices will be higher Some offers have been refused, which would have been accepted, say a couple of week. 1 , ago. Wool, in fact, is iirmly held, except where parties have o - 'er. bought. Such weak spots as there are, which are very few indeed, manufacturers have not been slow in taking advantage of. From now on, a more active v ool trade and firmer prices are expected among the members of the trade, almost without exception. The market quotations in Boston last week ranged from 9 to 14 cents for Montana wool of the vari ous grades. This would Indicate a range of from 7 to 12 cents in Great Falls. It has nearly always been our ex 1 ierienc3 here, however, that the Great Falls wools brought a considerably better pi ice than the.average maiket reports indicat ed. One reason for this is the fact that north Montana wo Is are generally of a better quality than the wools grown to the south of us. On a firm and rising market su h as prevails today the wool grower can reasonably lock for better prices than those indicated above. We would uot be surprised to see an average price of about 11 cents this year, which would be just about what wool brought two years ago.—Great Falls Tribune. Tlie Chicago Markets. Tuesday. CATTLE.

Prof. Hinton's patent base ball pitching gun was a decided success Thursday says a press dispatch from PrineetTn, N.J. Eight strike outs, one base on balls one wild pitch and four safe hits is the record in three innings in the first fair test of the machine's practica bility in an actual game. Nines representing the Ivory club ano Tiger inn, two of Princeton's social clubs, play, d a match game, using the yun to pitch for both tcims, and the contest attracted a large crowd of spectators, prominent among whoa were Mrs. Cleveland, with a party of friends, and many Princeton professors, who came to see with what success Prof. Hin ton's invention would meet. The gun is discharged by the batsman, who when ready for the ball to be delivered, steps upon an electrical intercepting plate, con nected by wires with the trigger of the cannon. The speed with which the ball is thrown is regulated by compressed air, and pronglike projectors from the cannon's mouth import a rotary motion to the sphere when discharged, pro ducing a curve in anv direction, according as the position of the projecting prongs is changed There is but one serious defect in the operation of the machine that will prevent its use in games, and that is the long time required for reloading. This was especially noticeable in this game, because the intercepting plate was out of order and the frequent delays thereby necessitated did not allow the game to be finished. Three innings only were played. During the first inning the batsm a n were timid about standing near th? plate and the big curves caused them to jump back, but as the gun threw strikes iu every instance they plucked up courage, stood closer to the plate, and succeeded occa sionally in making safe hits. Tne game was uninteresting excepting for the novelty of seeing the pit-! chers box occupied oy the machine. Notice of Dissolution. The co-partnership heretofore existing between James Malone and Wm.
