American woolen goods ate beginning
to reach the markets of the world, under
a tariff that protects the farmers' wool
clip. .Last year we exported «ver a
million dollars' worth of American wool
ens, and our imports of woolens were a
mere trifle compared with those under
the Wilson law.
The lower house of Congress
the Littlefiel£ anti-trust bill last Satur
day, with |but one dissenting vote.
The bill amend3 the Sherman anti-trust
act so, it is hoped, as to make it more
effective in the prosecution of those who
violate its provisions. As all of the dem
ocrats present voted for it, and as it was
a republican measure, it will be inter
esting to note whether the Chronicle
will continue to belabor the republican
party on account of the existence of
trusts, while basking in the sunshine of
self glorification as the originator of
Teton county's proposed wool combine.

determined that the guilty shall not

Trade Under Expansion.
Washington, June 6th.—Senator
Lodge is one of the most careful and
thorough investigators of the expansion
question in all of its bearings. He has
just been examining the growth of our
trade with Hawaii, and finds that five
years ago, in 1895, the total Hawaiian
trade with the United Spates amounted
to only $11,500,000. Last year it reached
833,500.000 having increased almost
threefold within five years, and most, of
this increase has occurred within the
past eighteen months.
The Senator says we may not think
that a business of $33,500,000 amounts
to very much, when our foreign trade is
now running up into the billions, but to
compare our trade with the Hawaiian
Islands, with their handful of people,
with our trade with some of the larger
countries of the world, gives a better
idea of the value of colonies to the
As a result of his investigations Sen
ator Lodge finds that—
Our „trade with the Hawaiian Islands
is over 100 per cent larger than our total
trade with Austria Hungary.
It is 75 per cent larger than our trade
It ie|60 per cent as large as our total
trade with Italy.
It is nearly four times as large as our
trade with Portugal.
It is over 150 per cent greater than our
total trade with Russia.
It is almost double our trade with
It is 125 per cent greater than our
trade with Sweden aud Norway com
It 13 more than double our trade with
It is ten times as 1 rje as our traie
It is nearly 90 times larger than '-oar
trade with Greece.
Comparisons with countries on the
American Continent show that Hawaiian
trade with the United States is equal to
30 per cent of our trade with the whole
Dominion of Canada.
It is nearly 150 per cent greater than
our trade with all the Central American
It is 60 per cent as large as our trade
It is 50 per cent larger than our trade
with all the British West Iudieft.
It is nearly five times as large as
trade with Porto Rico.
It is three times as large as our trade
with the Danish, Dutch and French
West Indies, with Haiti and San Do
It is almost twice as large as our trade

He then makes comparisons with
countries across the Pacific, and finds
that our trade with Hawaii is within six
million dollars of being as large as our
trade with the Empire of China.
It is more than three times as large as
our trade with Hongkong.
It is nearly half as large as our total
trade with all the British, Dutch and
French East Indies, which send us such
large supplies of sugar.
It is equal to 65 per cent of our total
trade with Japan.
It is more than five times larger than
our last year's trade with the Philip
It is nearly twenty times larger than
our trade with Asiatic Russia.
It whs larger by four million dollars
than our trade with the whole of the
Australasian Colonies last year, with
their five millions of people.
It was larger last year by more than
three million dollars than Our trade with
the entire continent of Africa.
Senator Lodge says the increase in our
trade with Hawaii has been very marked
since its annexation by the United
States, and he looks for equally rapid
improvement in our trade with Porto
Rico and the Philippines. These col
onies will absorb some of our surplus
manufactures, and they will also draw
upon this country for their provisions,
thus increasing the demand for the pro
ducts of American farms.
Bounty claims to the amount of $5,149
were filed with the clerk of the state
board of examiners during the past
month, as compared with $5.636 for the
same month last year. Last month's
claims were for the destruction of 400
wolf pups 151 wolves an<l 1,788 coyotes.
The largest amount coming from any
on« county came from Choteau, $1,153,
representing 89 wolf pups, 49 wolves and
365 coyotes. Teton county came next,
with $873 in claims for 85 pups, 9 wolves
and 329 coyotes; Valley was third, $582
•for 43 pups, 10 wolves and 233 coyotes;
Fergns fourth, $346 for 20 wolves, 20
pups and 103 coyotes; Custer fifth, $327
for 26 pups, 11 wolves and 110 coyotes;
Flathead couty filed the smallest claim,
$6 for 3 coyotes.—Standard.
The range horse market season is now
on in full blast, and train loads of West-,
ern horses, good, bad and indifferent,
are east-bound from Montana, Idaho and
Washington to be dumped into the sale
ring or retailed throughout the country.
There are so many buyers in the West
now that there is really competition for
the branded horse, and even the Indian
cayusesare in demand by the railroads
and the commission men, at least, who
make the same on the poor animal as on
the good one. The indiscriminate ship
ment of these common Western horses
has proved a loss to the shipper and al
ways will. It is quality and not quanti
ty that is wanted—and this holds true
with the Weetern horse. The sale at
South St. 1'aul Thursday showed this
when several hnndred head soldat prices
that did not make good feed, freight and
commissions.—New Brighton Reporter.
