The Democratic political! will not tnind the prolongation of the war in 8outh Africa as long as he thinks he can utilize it to party advantage by mis representing the real attitude of the President in the matter. The New York World is cot distribut ing free loaves of bread this year, as it did in 1894. The people can afford to buy their own bread now. Yet the World cont inues to rail at the McKinley Administration because it is a part of its stock in trade. < 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. New York bankers have loaned France SI5,COO,COO, and would oe pleased to do a little more accommodating in that particular line. There must be pros perity when our bankers are compelled gff away from home in order to find HSmßle to loan their money to. Nothing could have been étranger or more explicit than the orders of Post master-General Smith, to his Fourth Assistant, Mr. Bristow, to unearth the frauds in the Cuban postofflce and use his utmost endeavor to bring the cul prits to justice. The Administration is determined that the guilty shall not escape unpunished, and the appoint ment of a non-partisan committee by the United States Senate is assurance that none of the facts in the case will be concealed. 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 United States. 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 with Denmark. 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 Spain. It is 125 per cent greater than our trade with Sweden aud Norway com Lined. It 13 more than double our trade with Switzerland. It is ten times as 1 rje as our traie with Turkey. 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 states. It is 60 per cent as large as our trade with Mexico. 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 mingo included. It is almost twice as large as our trade with Argentine. It is almost half as large as our trade with Brazil, whence we import most of our coffee. It is n early 400 per cent larger than our trade with Chile. It is nearlv 400 per cent larger than our trade with the United States of Colombia. It is nearly fifteen times larger than our trade with Ecuador. It is more than six times larger than our J^trade with British, Dutch and French Guiana. It is ten times larger than our trade with Peru. It is ten times larger than our trade with Uruguay. It is more than five times larg> r than out trade with Venezuela. 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 pines. 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. 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. ltange Horses. 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.
